"It was the end of the world...In the dream I was sitting at home in the quiet room on my phone...there was a loud BOOM...I ran outside and looked up ...I saw the clouds opening.....then an angel sounded the trumpet...it was real,REAL LOUD...I remember thinking, 'I could never hit that high note or make the trumpet sound that loud...as I looked at the splitting clouds more and more angels were coming with swords and shields...Then in front of me the ground split open and horrible, ugly parched figures came up and started to hit there shields as if to taunt the heavens. Then, arrows flew down and started hitting the demons...then winged demons flew up and engaged the angels. ....Arrows were flying. I heard screaming. Then the ground opened up under me I fell into the earth but landed on a small ledge...I looked over into the pit and it was burning with fire....I was afraid and was able to pull myself back up to ground level.....I made it back to the house. I turned around and saw a demon laughing...he raised a bow and to shoot me in the face and I woke up...."
Ian is not one to have dreams nor share them with me. This dream as accounted above was the first thing that came out of his mouth this morning. I feel it is both a prophetic dream for the season in which we all find ourselves and a direct warning to Ian (and all of us) not to be found in a position where the earth would swallow us alive. Time is truly short may we all be found awake, oil in our lamps watching for the Bridegroom.

"See the day of the Lord is coming--a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger--to make the land desolate and destroy sinners within it. The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light. I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked for their sins. I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the pride of the ruthless. I will make people scarcer than pure gold, more rare than the gold of Ophir. Therefore I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of the LORD Almighty, in the day of his burning anger.
