Dream Received May 22, 2015
I walked through the back entrance of a large church one morning, the heavy wooden doors banging shut behind me. As I passed the door of a small room in the rear of the church, a young man emerged. He was yawning and carrying a big puffy quilt.
“I’m so sorry,” I apologized politely. “I didn’t know anyone was sleeping in there.”
“I’ll just have to sleep somewhere else today,” he complained.
I walked to the front of the church. In the center of the platform was an old-fashioned wooden barrel. A small box was sitting on a table beside the barrel.
Inside the box were about a dozen slips of paper, apparently left there from the previous night’s prayer meeting. At that time, each person attending was given an opportunity to choose a paper from the box which had a Scripture written on it with a message especially for them.
As I took a slip of paper, several other people who had come in the church after me also took papers.
I read the words on my paper to myself. It said, “Behold, the Bridegroom comes.”
I recognized the truth and urgency in the statement. Then I watched as the other people read their papers. They looked at each other in amazement.
Curious, I asked one of them, “What does your paper say?”
Without a word, he showed me the paper. It read, “Behold, the Bridegroom comes.”
“And yours?” I asked someone else.
“Behold, the Bridegroom comes,” he said.
All of our papers had the same message.
I woke up.
Note: I share the dream as it was given. Please consider the significance of it, especially in relation to dreams I have had with comparable meanings during the past several weeks.
