I am going to just talk about a dream that I had. At the time it was about to be 2012, and I was grieving a lot due to the death of family members and my brother being sent to prison.
The dream: We were all sitting in a church, it seemed like it was maybe a Bible study or something. Anyways, we were all standing around and having fun when things turned for the worst. We begun to hear rumbling and started to feel the earth shake.
We went outside to see what was going on and there were volcanoes rising from the ground, parts of the ground were splitting open, and comets where striking the ground.
Though all of this was happening I noticed something else there were billions and billions of people rising into the sky with out clothing. The ones at the bottom closer to earth were just naked, but the ones at the top had wings, as if the closer you got to heaven the wings would grow.
When I looked back down there was a angel standing on a small mound of rock that had been pushed up from the earth quakes. When I approached him I had the feeling of power, worthiness and fear, I felt afraid but very happy at the same time.
The angel had the body, and hair of Lucifer although the face was not lucifers, it almost resembled what looked to me like the face from the Statue of David. Also he looked like the Angel lucifer as an angel not satan.
There was nothing that felt evil about his angel. Anyways the Angel had white wings and glowed. He had on white armor with gold edges as a paladin would have. He was exceptionally tall but, not really tall. I'd say about 6 ft or less.
He had a sword that struck my interest. The handle was normal but it had no blade. Instead of a metal blade like a normal sword it had fire. A sword of fire. I asked him who he was and he replied. "I am the one who ensures the safety of those saved."
So far I have gathered one thing. I have not been saved. I have told everyone about this dream and they have said it could possibly be nothing, although Noah talked to god through his dreams. Noah had visions from god through dream.
I wonder if it was God giving me a vision to change my life around, or maybe even a trick from Satan. They say that Satan can take many forms, though there is one thing he cant hide. That sense of evil.
Interpretation to Derrick's Dream, by Carolyn
Hello Derrick, The dream God gave you in 2012 about the volcano and earthquake/ground shaking was from the Lord. Most Christians do not understand their dreams because they do not understand that God speaks to us through symbolism and parables - Just like Jesus did when He was here on earth, and just as He does all through the bible. In order to understand dreams, we need to understand symbolism.

This dream may not yet have come to pass as most dreams/visions of this nature from God take years to manifest. I do not believe the dream has come to pass yet because your comments indicate you are not yet where God intends to take you.
So here is what the Lord is saying to you: Your life is going to undergo a great 'shaking' in order to bring you to the place you need to be spiritually. Heb 12:26-27 [nasb] "And His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, "YET ONCE MORE I WILL SHAKE NOT ONLY THE EARTH, BUT ALSO THE HEAVEN."
This expression, "Yet once more," denotes the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain." When God does a shaking in our lives it is done to refine us in His refining fire.
It's usually not a pleasant experience but God permits it because it is through difficulties that we learn obedience to God, just as Jesus did. During these shakings, unhealthy things are removed from our lives.
The main reason God is doing this is to bring you into a higher spiritual level - He intends to bring you closer to Him - His call to you is "come up here" or "come up higher"!
The RAPTURE in dreams symbolizes being brought into a higher walk with God. It is only symbolic -- You do not want to miss this opportunity to become so much closer to God!
The Lord is letting you see that in order to enter into a close walk with Him you need to be made transparent. Being naked symbolizes being transparent, real & vulnerable and that is what you need to become in order to reach this spiritual place of wonder with your heavenly Papa.
The people near the top with wings are those who have learned to 'fly' and 'soar' in the spirit -- they are those who have overcome all the temptations & problems of this earthly life and are learning to trust God with all things and focus only on Him. The entire dream is a metaphor.
During this period of shaking in your life there are feelings, emotions, thoughts, etc which will come rushing to the surface [volcanoes symbolize inner issues of problems & anger that suddenly erupt and come up to the surface where they can be dealt with properly].
One of the main things God wants to get rid of within His kids if we want to be used by Him is pride. That is why God uses the angel that seems to be 'Lucifer' in your dream.
Now here's the promise God has for you = It is God's intention that all of the problems and issues which will arise (up on the little mount which was pushed up from the ground) in your life will result in you becoming what God created you for.
He created you to become a great messenger for Him. Angels are messengers and in this dream the angel with the sword of fire symbolizes what you are called to be for God at some point after pride and other unhealthy things which would ruin your walk with God are done away with.
You are called to speak forth fiery Words from the heart of God (sword of fire = the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God). There is more I could draw out of this dream but it would take a long time to write it all out.
Above is the basic message and promise of God for you to hold onto during times when things get hard or if feels like your life is falling apart... When things get bad, remember that this is God's way of shaking the dross from your life and bringing healing so that you will be able to rise from the things of the world and not only enter into a gloriously close relationship with God, but also be used by Him in a mighty way to minister to others.
That is His promise to you if you will promise to endure and persevere to the end in order to attain these rewards and this awesome walk with God.
Know that God will give you everything you need to overcome - You will need to make the choices necessary to do as He's asking in order to lay hold of the promises He has for you. "And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold, but he who endures to the end shall be saved" - Matt 24:12-13
"Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have[a] peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us." - Rom 5:1-5
"Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth" - Rev 3:10 Be blessed, Carolyn Papa's Dream Forum
