Early on the morning of February 7, 2010, just before waking, I had a dream that I was going up into heaven and I was traveling up through the clouds. It was beautiful and as I passed by the white clouds, against a beautiful blue sky, I anticipated seeing the Lord and Levi, my son who had passed on the year before, in 2009. The Word of God tells us, “For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trump of God, and the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Therefore, comfort one another with these words” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18. As an aside, I’ll mention here that the Word also tells us in 1 Thessalonians 4:7, just preceding this passage about the catching up, or rapture, “God has not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.” I want to keep it in the forefront of my mind that the Lord is not returning for the sinful, but the faithful, who are watching for Him. I might mess up once in a while and have to repent, but I do not want to miss the rapture of the saints! Early in the morning on February 8, 2010, the following day after my dream described above, I was sitting in the living room and as I was praying, I suddenly saw a vision right before my eyes. I was going up through the clouds in the nighttime. It was similar to a moon-filled night, because I could see the clouds, as I ascended up through the sky, exactly as I had seen them the prior morning during my dream, but it was night, not day. I was, of course, in awe of what I had seen, especially since this was a vision of the rapture, or catching up of the saints, not a dream. I was very much awake when I had this vision. I continued praying for a while and after sunrise, I went in to study the Bible, as is my daily routine. Bear in mind that, except possibly on a rare occasion if I am interrupted, I read at least one, or more, entire chapters of the Bible each morning and I start a new chapter the following day. As I sat down to study, I noticed that the previous day, I left off reading only part of Genesis 41. I placed a mark where I should begin that morning and, having read Genesis 41:31, I starting reading verse 32, “Because the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice, it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass” Genesis 41:32. Right here, where I left off the previous morning, Joseph was interpreting Pharaoh’s dream, which Pharaoh had actually dreamed twice, with slightly different details, but they had the same meaning. My mouth actually fell open. I said out loud, “Lord, are you speaking to me?” I had a dream only the previous morning of the rapture of the saints, described in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; then I had a vision of the very same thing the following morning, but it was the rapture taking place in the nighttime. I also thought how very profound it was that I left off without finishing the entire chapter of Genesis 41 the previous morning, which rarely happens, and then to start reading, “Because the dream was doubled...” right after my dream and vision of the same thing! I told my sister, Sheila, about the dream and the same vision I had the following morning. She has always been gifted with dreams and their interpretations. I mentioned to her that I didn’t know why the dream showed a daytime rapture, but the vision revealed a nighttime rapture. She interpreted that immediately. She told me that when the Lord returns, it will be daytime on one side of the world, but nighttime on the other side, so the Lord is coming both during the day and at night. That further astonished me, because the Lord was very precise in showing me what He would “shortly bring to pass.” The Lord reminded me that when Joseph explained to Pharaoh that his dreams were “established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass,” “shortly” actually meant seven years. When Joseph interpreted Pharaoh’s dream, he told him that from that time, there would be seven years of plenty, but after the seven years of plenty, the drought would bring famine for seven years. Folks, since I had a dream and a vision of the same thing the following morning, and since I began reading Genesis 41:32 right after my vision, I couldn’t draw any other conclusion to the matter, except that from the year that I had the dream and vision, which was 2010, the Lord would “shortly bring it to pass,” which caused me to think that Pharaoh’s “shortly,” which was seven years, was also the interpretation to my dream and vision, seven years, which brings us to 2017. I am further astonished that Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel’s last prophecy about the “time of Messiah” was for 2017!
