End of December, 2011
I will never be comfortable sharing something that seems to be a vision from Jesus, because my own dang human mind/thoughts could be corrupting it all...so, take this as something crazy, but either way I figured to send it your way in correspondence with your recent reader EQ dream:
In the dream, I am on the main floor of my home in Plainfield, IL (30 miles west of Chicago). My 10 year old puppy Rocky (Boxer/Jack Russell mix with his scarily human level emotions) is running around the house like a kid on Christmas morning. He keeps running to the back door, so I take him out & put him on his yard leash.
Rocky starts sprinting around the backyard in huge circles, with a huge dog smile the entire time. All of the sudden I hear a loud helicopter overhead. It is dusk & almost dark outside at this point. I look up and see what looks to be a large black helicopter with a cable hanging down and carrying something. Given, the helicopter and whatever is hanging from it have no lighting, so I just see it's black outline against the dusk sky.
Rocky is still running in circles, like he's having a huge celebration, but comes to a standstill as we both gaze to the East. Far to the East, the ground starts to shake to the point of where everything to the East was a blur. In the middle of the shaking/blurred area there was something with many many lights. It was like Christmas lights gone wild or almost, but not quite, like the lights in the movie 'Close encounters of the 3rd kind" with Richard Dreyfuss. Anyway, the shaking was so powerful, that I can't even describe it correctly.
Then, as the shaking stopped, single soldiers (American military) were running out to cover each neighborhood. One soldier per neighborhood/area. As the soldier ran toward my neighborhood, I started to get uneasy and took Rocky back inside. At this point I woke up.
The crazy part about this for me is that it literally stunned me, after I woke up. There was some fear (which was strange, because the dream wasn 't frightening), but I was stuck sitting at the end of my bed, just like in a zombie state...just odd...well until my wife woke up and asked me what the heck I was doing...then I snapped out of it & went back to sleep...it was 2am.
Well, nothing to claim here, but a friend of mine did mention the New Madrid when I told him this story.
Take care of yourselves my Brother & Sister in Christ!
