I was baffled, and at times extremely frightened.
I was NOT a born-again, spirit-filled Christian at the time of the dream,nor was I a biblical scholar, but I know the dream was from God!At the time of this dream I was a sinner, rebellious of Gods wayswith no desire to serve or follow any Christian doctrine.I was a semi-practicing Roman Catholic,but did so out of obligation to family traditions.Being Irish and Portuguese, I was obligated to follow family beliefs or be disowned by all loved ones.
Let me remind the reader at no time did I ask for, or seek any dream. I was just living my life.
I went to sleep as any other night. I began to dream in vivid color. At times these events seemed chronological, at other times seemed to be more panoramic.
The dream began with an extremely loud noise.
I saw the dead in Christ rise from their graves. [ 1TH 4:16 ]
I saw people instantly come out of their graves.They were dressed in glimmering, glowing white clothing.
Then they instantly vanished.I did NOT see them go in the air,
I don’t know where they went.I did NOT see anyone ALIVE that REMAINED taken anywhere!I did NOT see a rapture, only the resurrection of the dead!
This created mass hysteria, pandemonium, despair and chaos permeating all society.
I could supernaturally see many regions of the earth and this chaos filled the whole planet. [Ordo Ab Chao]
Everyone wanted to know what happened and where did the people go that came out of the graves?
Absolute hopelessness was in every heart, people were totally perplexed.
The whole world was in absolute disarray.
Television and radio communications were completely shut down for several weeks.[This temporary worldwide shut down could be caused by a significant solar flare (leaping out from the sun). (Note: Any damage caused by the EMP from a regional nuclear explosion, would be permanent (not temporary, and not worldwide).)][ ^ Events surrounding this prophecy.]
I walked the streets in shock. Everywhere there was absolute fear and lawlessness. Looting and murdering everywhere.
After several weeks, television and radio communications began to slowly come back on line; however, all radio and television broadcasts were the same man promoting a “New Government and Leadership”.
This new man, whom I believe was the Antichrist, was emerging to lead us.
This man, with olive skin and dark hair, spoke with great eloquence and charisma.
He was soothing and promised answers to all the problems.
This man was smooth and extremely convincing — he was a master communicator.He explained how this removal of people was God’s judgment upon them.He began to communicate through large, flat screen televisions strategically placed nearly everywhere. Everywhere I looked all radios and televisions on all channels and frequencies were his speeches. That is all you could get on all radio and television twelve to fourteen hours a day.Hitler was not accepted when he first began, but this man was immediately accepted by almost all people.He gave new direction for the whole world. He spoke of the “new times” upon us as human beings, new directives for global peace andthe need to give up current citizenship for “world citizenship”.This man constantly spoke of “World Order” and the benefits of all men dwelling together in peace.
This alarmed me to think of relinquishing my US citizenship,
I was not convinced of this man’s “New Order”. My freedoms and patriotism were instantly eroded.People around the globe in staggering rates accepted his new plan.I was amazed to see how quickly and without resistance people surrendered their rights. [ JOH 5:43 ...if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.]
Nearly hopeless, I began to search for answers. While walking the streets one day, I met an elderly gentleman. Everyone else was in despair but this man was friendly looking. I asked him if he knew what was going on in the world?
He told me the end was coming and that he had not prepared for the time of the Lord. At this statement sadness filled his countenance. He said to me he had not been right with the Lord and began to tell me God’s plan for man’s salvation. He carefully pulled a small Bible from his back pocket and began to show me scriptures revealing my need for a Savior. My heart began to fill with joy as I asked Jesus Christto forgive me for my sinful ways and
to fill my heart! This man had a small following of others who had accepted the message of Jesus Christ. Even though we were a small group, we began to make significant progress in spreading the gospel and meeting the physical needs of others.Our spreading the gospel seemed to work out in the most unusual ways. We could tell God was with us. This small band of Jesus followers had faith. This was completely abstract to my thinking that God would actually be involved in the everyday affairs of those who followed him faithfully. [ ^ Events surrounding this prophecy.]
One day a great earthquake shook the whole earth with extreme magnitude. [ MAT 24:7, MAR 13:8, LUK 21:11, REV 6:12, 8:5, 11:13, 11:19, 16:18, ISA 24 ] Millions of people were killed and the whole world was stunned by the devastation and loss of property and life. [ LUK 21:26 ]
I saw a tall triangular building with a glass exterior fall and kill two hundred people. This building was not in existence when I had this dream, but it is now in the very place I saw it fall.
The earthquake was worldwide and I had never heard of such an event reaching global proportions. [ ^ Events surrounding this prophecy.]
The weather completely changed. I saw winter weather in the summertime, summer weather in the winter. Winter became summer and summer became winter.
No one could predict weather patterns. All weather forecasts proved useless, it was as though the weather now had its own mind.
Crops perished. Droughts brought famines and deaths. Deaths brought global pestilence. [ ^ Events surrounding this prophecy.]
Local police departments were replaced with world military police.
They drove very unusual looking vehicles — now known as Hummvees or Hummers.
The men that were in them were dressed in all black uniforms with powder blue helmets. Some wore what looked like baseball caps. All of them were powder blue — now I know it to be United Nation’s blue. [ ^ Events surrounding this prophecy.]
The new leader and his laws were not resisted. There were no longer any elected officials. The Constitution was not the law of the land. It was shocking how easily our Constitution was replaced with a peaceful “martial law”. There was no privacy. Military police were everywhere, tracking and monitoring everyone and everything. I thought, “How did this happen to America so quickly and easily without resistance? Where were the ideas of our founding Fathers?”
We were totally monitored and tracked. As time passed we came to realize that our television sets not only broadcast to us but also transmitted signals back to the military about us. We discovered our television sets were somehow watching us as if they were cameras with microphones! Television continually explained to us that we were now being saved from all their troubles by aligning ourselves with this “New Order”. The “New Order” was said to have all the answers to our problems. This new leadership was necessary to bring change, to finally bring in the “New Order” of envisioned global peace. [ ^ Events surrounding this prophecy.]
My work with the “Evangelist man” continued to increase. Many so-called “Christians” were being changed by the power of the Gospel this man taught us. These backslidden Christians explained how they had once had a relationship with Jesus but became cold in their faith and fell away from a life of holy, passionate, pursuit of God. For a short period of time, many people came to Christ in total surrender. [ JER 16:19-21 ] [ ^ Events surrounding this prophecy.]
One day a man approached me and told me that I should get my identification mark. He told me we could no longer conduct business transactions without this identification mark on our right hand or forehead. It looked like the sun with a hand in the middle.
You could see the flames coming out from it. It was about the size of a nickel and was located in the web of the right hand between the thumb and first finger. He encouraged me to get my identification mark to avoid the hassle. At that very instant a very strong impression came to me emphatically telling me to not get this mark under any circumstances — my mind began to hear a word directly from Revelation 13:16-18 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. 
This was to my utter amazement, seeing that I had never read the scriptures nor had heard of such an identification mark. The New Order began to recommend people get their identification mark. They sold the idea to the people much the same way the idea of using checks and credit cards convinced the public of their value. Soon pressure was increased to the point that you could not buy or sell without this mark of identification. [ ^ Events surrounding this prophecy.]
More words rang in my mind, this time from Matthew 24:15-22 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
I knew the end was coming fast and I needed to get to my wife. A strong internal voice was trying to lead me along. A voice kept telling me not to return to my home. I did not know to obey the voice of the Lord. I ran to my home to check on my wife as fast as I could. When I arrived shock and fear overwhelmed me. I began to understand what was happening on the earth. It hit me like a ton of bricks. I reached for my door knob, and I saw the door lock had been replaced with new locks. My privacy was totally violated. I will never forget the emptiness I felt as I saw the paint on the door from the previous locks. I was locked out of my own home.
Again a voice spoke to me saying, “Don’t open the door.” I did not recognize the voice of God. In fear, I opened the door and was greeted by a devilish, sinister looking being. I asked, “Who are you?” It was a demon. I screamed in great fear and shut the door and woke up.
Petrified and paralyzed from fear, I found myself lying in a pool of sweat, drenched from the agony of what I had seen. It was three o’clock in the morning and I was beside myself in anguish. I awoke my wife looking for solace, but she said it was just a nightmare and told me to go back to sleep. I knew God was trying to tell me something, but why? And why me? I got up and began to pace the floor of our living room but peace was not to be found. I was impressed to read the Holy Bible. I did not even know if I owned a Bible. I began to realize the absolute emptiness of my life — I knew no way out. I went outside to my garage and began to search frantically through many boxes of discarded items for a Bible. At last, I found it — a Saint Joseph Catholic Edition Bible. How it got there I have no idea.
I went inside and began to read the book of the Apocalypse. I must have read four or five chapters before falling back asleep. [ ^ Events surrounding this prophecy.]
As soon as I fell asleep the dream began again exactly where it stopped. Once again I was facing this sinister being. I was gripped with tremendous fear and ran off. I began walking the streets. Everyone was spiritually dead. Men’s faces everywhere were filled with the dread. They looked as though they were in a catatonic state. Suicide rapidly became the answer to the dread surrounding mankind, men’s hearts were literally failing them from fear. People by the thousands were committing suicide. The huge screen televisions kept broadcasting world events as though they were local news. By now nearly all nations were in the New Order. This was very strange. There were almost no sovereign individual nations. The world was now divided into global regions — no longer as continents and countries. [ REV 17:13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.]
The awareness of God being on the Global scene was nearly impossible to detect. Evil had pervaded all aspects of society, gross spiritual darkness was covering the earth. The actual gravity of despair and hopelessness was seen on every face. People acted as robots, the love of many had waxed cold, showing little or no emotions; such as joy, peace and hope. [MAT 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.] [ ^ Events surrounding this prophecy.]
The old Evangelist launched what he called the final all-out thrust, speaking the Word of God with reckless abandon. In pockets all over the earth, others began doing the same. I was able to see this awesome display of Almighty God’s power at work. I could see the Global scene in full demonstration of who Jesus was and just what He could do. I saw miracles everywhere. God’s people working miracles on a wholesale basis by all who were truly the Lord’s people. The difference was the real servants of God were able to do awesome miraculous works; creating miracles, including the dead raised to life, and healing after healing of incurable diseases. This was happening all over the world. It was as though Jesus himself was everywhere doing His work through ordinary people. Unbelievable miracles were now commonplace. [ JOE 2:23 …he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.]
This great outpouring of God’s Spirit was tremendous and very widespread. Whole nations were being brought into the Kingdom of God. It only lasted a very short time. I was not clearly shown the time-frame, possibly six months. Then gross darkness once again began engulfing the minds of all who would not hear the message of hope. [ ^ Events surrounding this prophecy.]
Not long after the evangelistic thrust began, we were captured by “military” agents. We were taken into custody and questioned regarding our affairs. These agents had firsthand knowledge of all our actions. It was as though they were with us the entire time. The questioning was kind at first. We were given an explanation of the “New Order” and it was stressed to us the need for our allegiance, since there was no more United States of America. The men speaking to us were very polished in their delivery and quite convincing about the need for our cooperation. We were eventually told we must not propagate the Gospel. We refused to stop our evangelism and were taken to another level of interrogation.
The true heart of the “New Order” was finally revealed. The threats and taunts were now at full power. It was frightening.They told us their plan was to totally eliminate all Christians.
They said our outdated religious practices were futile and that many Christians had cracked under the pressure of the “New Order”, thus proving the emptiness of their faith.
Mockery and insolence was the scheme of the interrogation, which lasted for hours.
They began to ask us to deny “Him”.
They would never say the name “Jesus”, they called Jesus, “Him.”
They could not say the name! [ ^ Events surrounding this prophecy.]
If a man was not truly on The Rock of Jesus it would be easy for them to break — even the strongest. We were given divine strength and courage and would not back down at their threats. Finally, after many hours of interrogation, we were led down a very long corridor. Hundreds of people were in a single file line. Several doors separated this long corridor and at random times, more interrogators would burst forth and more in the line would fall away. I saw many step out of the line. As they stepped out of the line they would begin to cry. We began to realize this was a line of Christians on their way to some type of torture or something. [ Rev 17:6, Rev 20:4 ]
After many hours we reached the last visible doorway. The door opened revealing an executioner and several agents. Now the full realization of what this was came to us. Fear gripped me! Never before had I experienced such fear! I began to shake. It was not shaking as if I were cold. I was shaking violently. I began to shake like a washing machine severely out of balance. Extreme chills engulfed my whole body. I could barely stand. My jaws became locked! This man had a black hood with holes for the eyes and mouth. He had a sword that looked like Sinbad’s sword in movies. It looked like the sword on the Masonic emblems. The presence of evil was thick, it was literally tangible. The whole experience was horrifying and I knew now that the only way to be saved was to die for your faith.
The time had come when the only way to be saved was to die for Jesus.
Only a few times had I heard the term “martyr” and now I was about to become one. [ ^ Events surrounding this prophecy.]
I began to hear loud voices around me shouting, “It is not to late. Deny your faith in ‘Him’ and you may live! Deny Him and you will live! Deny Him and you will live!” [ MAT 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.]
I did not know what would be better — to live in the earth the way it was, or to die. Confusion assaulted my mind. My old Evangelist friend was executed — right before my very eyes. I knew the end was coming, one way or another. The old man was not fearful at all. Next was my wife, I could not bear it all!
I was tormented by voices saying, “You will deny ‘Him!’ You are a coward! Give up and live!” [ ^ Events surrounding this prophecy.]
My mind was in complete hysteria and worst of all, I could not even speak out loud! I was emotionally paralyzed. Here my wife is now about to die and I can’t even speak. Suddenly the door shut and I know she too is gone. It felt as though I would freeze, it was so cold and dreadful. I began to fear I would deny Jesus and renounce my faith in His Lordship. I felt complete hopelessness — the reality of denying the Lord was overwhelming! I could not speak to call on the Lord for help, so deep inside I said,
“Lord save me, I don’t want to deny you!“
Instantly I felt a hand touch my right shoulder and great warmth and peace flooded my whole being. I looked back to see who was with me, and there stood Jesus.
I am not sure how he got there or if he was noticed by others, but there He was and He was glorious! His eyes were like fire — blazing lamps looking deep into my soul. Strong yet comforting, He spoke to me and told me,
“Fear not, for death shall never hold you, my son.”
[ PHI 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.]
All at once courage and boldness took hold of me and I declared, “I shall never deny Jesus Christ, for He is Lord of all and desires you to be saved from your sin!” [ MAT 16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.] [ ^ Events surrounding this prophecy.]
The door opened again. This time it was my turn. I was laid face up on a table in the shape of a cross. My body was strapped to the table on what would be the vertical part of the cross and my arms were strapped to what would be the horizontal part.
The executioner stood to take my life. I saw the sword raised. I saw it fall, but as soon as the blade of the sword touched the front of my neck I was gone, literally gone from my body. I felt no pain!! I was instantly standing beside Jesus looking upon the whole scene. [ 2CO 5:8 …to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.]
I saw my body bleeding profusely. The executioner and the agents made several comments about how much more I bled than most. I bled so much that the executioner took off his mask shouting, “I will not kill another one of these people.” I awoke from the dream, very, very shaken and needing many answers from this dream.
