The year was 2002. It was August and I was on summer vacation at my aunt's home in London. I had just turned 14 at the time. One day, while asleep, the most vivid dream ensued.
ACT 1, SCENE 1
In the first scene, I was with a cousin in her parent's bedroom. For some reason we were fighting; slapping each other's faces. Suddenly, the roof flipped open like the page of a book or like a curtain when you draw it open. There were people in the sky flying at the speed of light.
One man among them looked down on us; he smiled and waved us goodbye. Then it dawned on us that it was the rapture, the end had come. Next thing a legion of cops began to appear from nowhere. They were filing out in droves, all clad in black with dark sunglasses, it like a scene out of a MEN in Black movie. They were very resolute in their footsteps. They looked mean and cold, almost like robots. They started chasing after people. We began to run helter-skelter.
In the next scene, I was still running but this time, by myself, I don’t know what might have happened to my cousin. I reached the end of a long road and found what seemed like a mechanic workshop on the corner. I ran into it for safety. Inside were a bunch of young people reveling, groping and fondling each other's bodies. I recognized one of them as my classmate at school.
I walked up to her and grabbed her by the arm saying 'Babe, what are you doing here? Don't you know the rapture has taken place?' I dragged her out of the shed and we began to run again. One cop saw us and started chasing after us. We ran as fast as we could. We ran into a street where a line of cars were parked. The cop was still in hot pursuit. So we decided to hide in between two cars. We heaved a sigh of relief. The cop had missed us, or so we thought. We were enjoying our few seconds of respite when I felt something cold inside my ear and then a gunshot in my ear.
When I came to myself, I was alone on a hillside. I looked up and the sky flipped open like the page of a book or like a curtain when it is drawn and there appeared a very lush, green meadow and across the meadow were the following words written in white ' THE NEW JERUSALEM COMING DOWN FROM HEAVEN.'
I woke up, dazed and very badly shaken, I sat up trying to digest what I'd just seen. It seemed so real and yet like a movie. I pondered on that dream for days on end and couldn't bring myself to tell anyone. It was quite a while before I could share that dream with anyone. It was really scary but that dream was the beginning of a series of events that made me finally surrender my heart to the Lord.
I don't regret that I met the Lord, or He met me at quite a young age, our meeting that early on in life, kept me from a lot of mishaps. I've made some mistakes but not as damning as I would have made if I did not surrender to Jesus. I've made some wrong turns along the way no doubt, but the Lord has always found me and put me back on the straight and narrow.
