I want to share it with you and ask if any of you have had anything similar in feeling, if not content.

I do not think this was literally prophetic but the feeling it left behind was so awe inspiring I just have to share.

The earliest part I recall had me driving down a country road in an older model car with some children in the back seat - they were not my children and I have no idea why they were in my car. I drove down a hill and noticed beautiful music drifting up from a valley. I slowed down and then as there was nowhere to turn I reversed back and drove the car in reverse to a school in the valley. Myself and the children followed the music to a playing field. On the field were gathered many children but I did not see the source of the music. I became aware of a great misty cloud lowering down to us and when it reached me I was lifted up. This is the feeling that has been left with me: I was raised into the cloud and overcome with joy and light. I thought "this is it! I am being raptured up!" it was ecstatic and so pure and loving that I want to be able to go back to that dream and feel it again. However, the cloud lifted again and left us back on the ground, I felt as though I had been given a hug from God and a glimpse of what was to come.

The dream was so vivid! I think it was telling me that I should keep nurturing and teaching others (the school and the unknown children), that I should draw on my past (old car and reversing) but look forward to unimaginable joy when I finally do meet God.

Many years ago, before I had ever read the Bible I had a similarly vivid dream of rapturing, just before it happened all the birds in the world flew past me in a rush as trumpets sounded, and then just as I was lifted an earthquake and blinding light woke me from the dream. I just read Revelations and noticed the reference to birds. How did that get in my subconscious?

I think I am understanding why death shall have no hold on us when we have the promise of something so much better than life in the here and now.

God bless

True. We don't have to be afraid of death. God is with us, and death will just be another transition. We will be in eternal joy in Heaven

I really believe I am not fesrful of being dead because the Bible says those who die in Christ are with Him through eternity. However, i have worked in hospitals and nursing homes and have spent years caring for elderly, dying loved ones and I'm terrified of a long, miserable, drawn out death. Every week at least once i go over this with my adult children making sure I won't have to suffer and when my end is close I can die at home

Thank you for commenting. I still don't know what my belief is about end times and rapture. I do know that the feeling this dream left me with has not faded, I still feel God has sent me a warm, encouraging hug and a glimpse of what will be there after this world and its pain have passed away. Punababe, let us pray for a swift end for ourselves and our loved ones when our time on earth is finished.

God bless
