Something very interesting is occurring with the Un-Blog, which is that every once in a while someone will write or tell me of a dream or vision they had relative to upcoming events. I don’t publish those things on the Un-Blog because it isn’t what the Lord intends for the Un-Blog. This is a place of safety and of deep spiritual truth and a sanctuary for seekers. If I published these things some of them would of course not come to pass, and some probably would. It would change the Un-Blog into a crystal ball that doesn’t work well. Instead of faith in Christ, the Un-Blog would be promoting faith in the arm of flesh.
None of these dreams or private visions can be embraced as prophetic or instructive to anyone but the person who received it. But, the Scriptures do say that troubled times are ahead, and every one of these unofficial dreams seem to agree.
So, I listen to and read these things, and it is very interesting to see the overlap, the common elements of the things people are telling me they heard or saw, and what is in scripture. There is a common thread among them, a common message.
If I had to try to say what it was, it would be that great things are going to occur among us, times are quickly changing, and that the wise and the inspired are preparing spiritually and temporally to be ready to “abide the day” that is coming.
So, I derive from this, not a better knowledge of what will come or when, but a better determination to be prepared. The message of the Un-Blog has always been to come unto Christ, and to listen most earnestly to what He is telling each of us we must do – not just with our eternity or distant future, but what to do about today, and tomorrow, and next month, or whatever days of preparation we still have before us.
There are three possible outcomes.
1) If there is no urgency at all – and we prepare for something that isn’t coming – boy will we will feel silly.
3) If there was a great need to be prepared – and we did not – boy will we feel terrified and stupid.
2) If there was a need to prepare – and we did prepare in inspired ways – boy will we feel grateful, loved and safe. We will also feel worshipful to Father for inspiring us to be ready.
Let’s see, if I have to choose between feeling silly, feeling terrified and stupid, or feeling grateful and safe. I’ll go for grateful and safe.
