    I want to be careful not to make this post of mine about my interpretation. I am a senior citizen, and it seems weird to me that I would be having a new to me experience.
    And so close to The Rapture.
    When I dream, it is usually about me(figures :yes: ) or I am knowing. That is to say I know them like we know Rob Petrie or Lucy Ricardo.
    But I had a dream last night that was vivid and violent. All the people were unique unto themselves, and yet everybody was notably beautiful. They were at war with their environment, which was a lush overgrown eden. Their every thought was evil. They wore clothing that was not able to cover their nakedness.
    They could talk to me, but I appeared mute to them as I didn’t know them, and therefor could not know what to say to them.
    The point of this post is not interpretation. Rather it is to report my glimpse into a dimension where I know not, and am not known.

    Everyone needs to submit their dreams to the mods before posting here:

    Nevertheless, this is one that is rather meaningful. While I cannot provide an immediate interpretation, nor was one asked for, this does come to mind:

    For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 1 Corinthians 13:12

    The point of this post is not interpretation. Rather it is to report my glimpse into a dimension where I know not, and am not known.

    Since heaven is a place where we shall know as we are known, I must conclude you got a glimpse of a place that is definitely NOT heaven.

    Matthew 24:37 “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.”

    Gen 6:5 “The LORD saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time.”

    I am convinced of this, that the One who began a good action among you will bring it to completion by the Day of the Messiah Jesus. Philippians 1:6

    Dear gobyebye,
    I know that you did not share your dream for interpretation purposes,
    and I would not be able to interpret it accurately anyway except to be able
    to agree with David R., but I “felt” the dream in my heart, in my Spirit
    as you were describing it. I felt darkness, confusion, a sense of evil
    pervading the entirety of what you described, like the verse in Gen 6:5
    that TxThom posted.
    Could I ask, you said they could talk to you (but that you couldn’t
    talk to them). What kinds of things were they asking (or telling) you?
    (I’m getting the sense that they were asking you something, that’s why
    I ask.)

    Words are going to fail me now; but with that understanding I’ll go on.
    My post was intended more along the lines of “has anything like this happened to you?”; have you ever been in a space both not known and at the same time not knowing. Recently we had a thread asking if anyone has ever heard their name called. Several people responded that they had. So close to The Rapture I would have felt remiss not to have posted this.
    First, this was not a nightmare. I never felt fear or threatened. This was a vision that occurred to me while I was sleeping.
    I left out a lot of detail in the original post because I had already accepted my own interpretation.
    The dream was not dark; but very vivid. It was very beautiful, but not an appealing place. And although this was not a nightmare, there was violence everywhere. I never for a moment thought I could be in heaven.
    In the dream, my mind referenced the bible passages mentioned above by TxThom. I though, “this is an evil that can never end of itself.”.
    One interesting thing was that in this very lush place, the environment was able to aggressively fight back against the people who warred with it. I remembered that Jesus, the Son of God, had said stones could cry out; here plants could fight. The people used a “sticky fire” against the plants.
    But the defining thing about these people was their single-minded, complete commitment to self-adulation. As I watched these people I was very much reminded of Isaiah 14; 13 – 15.
    As to communication, we all spoke the same language. I could understand them as they spoke to each other. I could not understand them when they spoke to me. And because I could not able to understand them, I never had anything to say. They thought I was a mute! However, this reminded me of Luke 16 and the story of the beggar, Lazarus. We know Abraham and the rich man talked; but could Lazarus even hear the rich man?

    Lately I have been thinking about image. How we are made in the image of God and conversely how we as humans seem to almost even worship an image in the world of success or self promotion. I used to work in the advertising industry and I remember an uncle telling me it was an evil industry. I have given that comment a lot of thought and really he was right. I do not know what you saw in your vision exactly but maybe it was a vision of the image we have developed here on earth that is worshipped and drags people in to live up to this image rather than worshipping God. :scratch: I know that I don’t want any part of trying to live up to an image of basically “vanity” that is promoted in the world. God bless this site today!! :rose:

    It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. Psalm 118:8

    I was reminded today while reading other posts that I meant to come back and finish this thread.
    I didn’t ask for an interpretation in the beginning, because I was comfortable with my own. It was just such an odd sensation to be in a place where I was not knowing and not known.
    An oft repeated question in my recent prayer life has been, ” for what reason was I born to be a member of the Church of the Body of Christ, at this time in history? ”
    It was sorta like my own personal experience of the movie “It’s a wonderful life”. I prayed, and the Holy Spirit showed me a place without the restraining power of the Church.
    However, I do not believe that I was shown a vision of this world in the future, after the Restrainer is removed.

    I don’t think you need to locate what you saw in time or place. It is what inhabits the heart of all who are at war with God and everything He has created. The natural mind is at enmity with God and cannot be subject to His will.

    As time goes on, the more at odds I have begun to feel with the values of this age. This “sticky fire” is like Napalm; it destroys everything in its path. I also find that while I can understand what they’re saying, I cannot find a way to speak their language, just I as am able to know what a wild animal means when it growls yet my own attempts at reason in return are unpersuasive. Those who have the Spirit know me and I know them.

    Dear David, This is a personal question so you don’t have to answer if you’d rather not. I was wondering if you’d had to go to Viet Nam?
