I Had A Dream I Got Left Behind And 4 Important Things I Was Reminded Of.
Updated: Jun 21, 2022
Do you dream? Not the goal-type aspirational dreams. But the literal dreams you get from sleeping.
I do. And I remember every single dream when I have them. Even more so the ones that feel the most realistic. I’ve had dreams where I wake up crying with tears pouring out of my sleepy eyes. Ones that are so scary I wake up with my heart beating hard enough it could come out of my chest.
This is all leading up to this one specific dream I had. One that shook me. It was something like a possible future we might be headed to.
This dream I’m going to talk about happened at the beginning of last year. Lately, it’s been replaying on my mind and I’m going to share it with you. And let me tell you, it left a mark on me.
People are preparing and packing up to go somewhere. It felt final- the end of something. And these people are going away. I’m surrounded by hundreds and hundreds of people making their way through. It’s noisy and chaotic. People load up in helicopters. That was the only transportation. Where they are going, I have no idea. What I do know is I am not one of those people leaving.
Then, everyone is gone. My mom and sister are gone as well. I begin to cry hysterically as I realize what happened. I got left behind.
In screams, I keep repeating, “What did I do wrong? What did I do wrong?” Over and over again.
The next thing I know, I’m living in my own apartment. It is futuristic and filled with technology. I sit in front of a computer, working. I live my whole life through it. I have this knowing that everything is to be done through this computer. And I’m not to go outside of my apartment. There is no need.
I decide I don’t want this life anymore. That’s when I get up and decide I am going outside to proclaim Jesus. I open the door to sunlight. As soon as I step out, I wake up.
I lie awake trying to process what I had experienced in my dream. Wondering why I got left behind.
Dream VS Reality: The Main Reason Why I Shared This Dream
My dream was mild. And I had it easy. The truth is when Christ takes His people those who get left behind will go through horrible things.
This dream did remind me of four important things...
Not every believer will be saved
Don't let anything distract you from God
Preach the Gospel in every circumstance
This post isn’t to scare you but to make you aware. And I hope it will nudge you to get your life straight with God if you are not. Only believing that He is real will not save you. Only through faith in Jesus can one receive salvation. He is our only way to Heaven.
The reality is Jesus will one day come back for His church. Don’t get left behind.
Do you know if you’re saved? Have you done these three things: Turn to God, repent of your sins, and accept Jesus Christ as your LORD and Savior? Do it right now if you haven't. We don't know the hour or the day Jesus returns.
Are you ready?
Side note: Connecting My Dream to What I Recently Learned
As I mentioned before, I had this dream at the beginning of last year. And earlier this year (2022), I learn about the Metaverse. If you’re not familiar with the Metaverse, in essence, it's virtual reality.
You can work an actual paying job, buy real property, and even go to an actual wedding. Now, this may sound like a video game. It’s not, it’s “real life” lived through a virtual universe. All through the eyes of a headset.
You can do almost anything and everything through this Metaverse. And many people have already jumped on this.
Because of this I know there is a good chance we could be headed that way. Considering how integrated technology is in our lives already.
I'll go ahead and tell you now, I'm not on board.
