My dream of destruction

He has touched even my dreams, I don't dream the same anymore. Even in my dreams He shows and teaches me things. I feel like some of my dreams have become warnings.

Last night I dreamed I was in a large multi level building with many rooms, each room was filled with lots of people all partying and having a wild time.

I was walking from room to room observing and I noticed evil men entering the building. As soon as I saw them I knew they were planting bombs to destroy the entire building. I quickly made my way to the exit but I didn't make it in time. The building exploded and rumble was everywhere.

I was suddenly in sea of bodies, everyone was in a great panic. I was tangled in a mass of hundreds of people moaning and groaning in great despair. For some reason I didn't feel panic, I felt great pity for everyone.

Suddenly I looked up and I saw light coming from a small hole, I knew it was the way out. I started yelling to everyone that I saw light, I knew the way out. But no one would listen to me, they would only moan and writhe. I was franticly trying to tell them to listen to me, I saw light!!!

But to get out of this sea of bodies I had to push and claw my way out and this caused great pain and no one wanted to cause themselves the pain necessary to get out. I pushed and clawed and I found the way out and I was free of the sea of bodies and the rumble.

When I turned around I noticed someone made it with me and I was so glad!! But to my shock and horror the person turned around and headed back into the rumble. I grabbed them, asking what they doing. There was only death and destruction behind us, why on earth would they go back?? To my despair the person said they didn't know what I was talking about, they didn't see rumble anymore! I couldn't understand it, they had just come out of a death trap, they had just tasted death and made it out and were free yet they were going back. When they looked they didn't see that the whole place was a tomb, it looked normal to them. The horrible thing was I couldn't stop them. End of dream.

When I describe this dream, I speak of horror, despair etc. I feel these emotions in the dreams yet I'm not afraid. This is not a nightmare I'm having. It's hard to describe, I don't FEEL actual fear. It's like a detachment.

You know...When I found your blog a few days ago, it touched my life. I really don't think I've read more amazing things coming from somebody. You just don't hold back, and I am so inspired by many of your posts. I am just awed at what God is doing in your life.

I also feel like this particular post was for other ones touched me, but this one just grabbed me. I almost feel as if I am that other person that decided to go back. This is a warning for me. Thanks Jennifer, and thank you, God!

I'll keep checking back here for more things to read. wow...I hope other people are being touched by this blog as much as I am...(funny thing is, I think I found a link to it while google searching for info on Ted Dekker's books and stuff...soo glad I did)

What a powerful dream. Such a true picture of the world without Christ.

Christ is the answer! Christ is what people are longing for! Christ is our all in all. Christ is our everything!

Love you, Jennifer. I'm so in awe of what God is doing in your life. I've always said you had a gift, even from a young child. You could see things the average person couldn't. I can't wait to see what God does in and through you.

Love, Mom

What a prophetic dream!

How that parallels the world without their Saviour.

God bless you!

In so many ways this dream is me. I know that there is a way out, I have been taught that my whole life, and I have many times made my way to the light, but I have never fully come through the open door. I have always held some part of me back. Always wanting to maintain that control over my self. Sue told me about all of this a few weeks ago but once again I got "distracted" and have not gotten to it till today. I started reading at the very first entry and am making my way to the end. Every bit of it has touched some part of me, but this one speaks to me a little more. I have got to come through that door. I wish I could have seen you when you were here for Jeremy's graduation. Thank you for being obedient and sharing all that God is doing for you. Hopefully I can beging to report similar happenings in my own life.
