On July 29, 2022, I believe I had a Rapture/end times/warning dream.
This was a first for me as I felt I was not meant to have any such insight as I had been asking God for quite some time if He would share anything that He wanted me to know or to teach me through either a dream or a vision.
I eventually stopped asking; I was becoming disappointed because my dreams continued to be filled with nothing but nonsense, lacking any sort of meaning.
I woke this particular morning thinking I had dreamt something important, something I needed to remember. The feeling was very heavy and persistent.
I had a few images in my head trying to form and one sentence that was spoken to me that I did immediately remember. I think it actually kept with me the whole rest of the night.
Sitting down at my computer, thinking hard about what I had dreamt, I opened up YouTube. On the main page were a few video recommendations of end-time topics.
The words "end times" caught my eye, and it all suddenly came rushing back to me—all the images and even the overwhelming feelings I had experienced in my dream.
I was outside, by myself, looking up at the sky. Very quickly, in a flash, the sky turned dark like it was night. The Sun was gone, and I did not see the moon.
A verse in Mark came to my mind in my dream.
There were only a few stars visible. I realized it had just been a day, but now it was suddenly night.
I immediately realized Jesus was coming back. I yelled for my husband to come quickly; however, I remained there alone.
It's hard to describe the feeling that washed over me, but it was like intense joy and excitement. Such overwhelming excitement that I had never felt before for anything.
I continued to look up (this part is very hard to explain or describe because I didn't know what I was seeing.
There was an area that was illuminated; it took on an oval shape and had a dark center.
If you Google "galaxy" and then hit "images," this is what it looked somewhat like except with a dark center. There was no color to it; it was just white.
The excitement I felt grew even stronger because I knew Jesus was just about to return. Then something grabbed my attention.
To my left was some sort of structure with a roof. On top of the roof was a very dark figure with horns. It was darker than the night sky.
I was not afraid of it but was confused, thinking, Jesus is coming back, but this being does not look right. I had this urge to get closer to see what it was, but then the word—"deception" came strongly to my mind.
The next thing I knew, I was suddenly caught up in the sky. I don't remember flying up, it happened in an instant, and this voice rang through my whole being, saying, "Remember, don't look back." I remember saying "ok" and thinking of the story of Lot's wife.
I woke at that point with that warning still ringing through my mind and then fell back to sleep.
I hope this dream was from God; I'd like to believe it was. But in any case, I think what is important to remember for us all is that:
First: deception will be very strong in the last days. Matthew 24:24 says that false Christs will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect. We need to keep strong in our faith, read God's Word, and be in continuous prayer.
Second: Always keep your eyes focused on Jesus—don't look around and be tempted by all that the world has to offer.
Lastly: if you pray for something but the answer seems to be a "no," don't get discouraged; God may answer your prayer, but not in your timing, in His.
