I had a vision long ago, and I knew right where I’d be at His return.


The last train pulling in

The only difference in my dream was that the earth was in total darkness. I was at the very top of a tower. 

I was only 18 years old when I had this dream and I remember every detail as if it were yesterday. So profound. I had no idea, since I was extremely upset. I thought I was going to die, because some guys had given my girlfriends and me some powerful pills as we were drinking beer with them and we found out later. We were at an outdoor concert. A hangout called, The Site. All the hippies went there on the weekends to listen to music, and the local artists and burnouts would just jam together. 

Everyone pretty much trusted each other, because hey, we were hippies. Not cool, what these guys did. We tried to drive back from Lake Michigan and we were terrified. They laughed about it after we drank the beers. They actually had the nerve to ask, “do you know what you just drank? And told us they were called Thorazine and it was for mental patients. Apparently if came from the medicine cabinet of one of their mothers. Hmmm, maybe he saw into our future. lol They thought it was hilarious to do this to unsuspecting girls. Ahh, the 70’s, so much fun. Well, I can tell you that this is why many people didn’t survive, and I thought my heart was going to stop that night. 

But I got up and tried to walk around. When I did have this dream, it was the most profound, as I have stated, and I was immediately “awakened,” almost alarmed by the message.Yea sure, some people could say it was a hallucination, but it was clearly not. It was so startling to me that I was ‘scared straight!”  It was so very obvious to me that it was God and I had no relationship with Him at that time. He showed me that I was surely not going to die, because He had plans for me and He had a place and a time that He had designated for my appointed destiny and it sure didn’t include me partying my life away. All my life I was wondering about this picture. I started to see it unfolding, but now I have actually seen the reality of it and it is most amazing. He tells us that He would show us things before they happen. 

My girlfriend had called me later to see how I was feeling and get together. She still was feeling pretty bad. I told her about the dream and she was amazed by it. 

I told her the whole earth was in darkness and yet I could almost reach out and touch a planet. I was standing beside three people. They seemed to be my loved ones. I had no idea who they were since it was far in my future. A voice spoke and it seemed to be God. He said, “Get the people ready.” I knew what He meant and I said “yes.” 

I began to tell people to board these designated trains into a city and I told them to leave everything behind. As I continued in what has clearly been my gifting, one of evangelism, since becoming a believer, I see this part of the dream being fulfilled. 

I was reaching the very end of the dream when I could see that the last people were boarding the trains. I entered a tower in this city and I went into an elevator and went all the way up to the very top floor. On that floor I stepped into a room that seemed to be a conference room full of people. They seemed to be waiting for me. It was as if I had been witnessing to these people without being aware of it. I had spoken to them briefly and walked over to the window and looked out. 

At this point I realized the last train full of people was coming into the station and an excitement was building in the room. I looked out the window and pointed, “He’s coming!” I shouted. Everyone began to shout, “He’s coming, He’s coming!” We all looked over the horizon and what had been total blackness, was now the brightest light we had ever seen coming up over the horizon. Brighter than the sun! The shouting was growing and so was the excitement as every corner of darkness was being filled with light! 

When I woke, I was filled with a joy that I had experienced something incredible and I had a calling that was profound. I also understood that this was something very deep with prophetic implications, since I’ve never forgotten it. I knew that I could not be taken from this earth until the Lord was finished with His work. 

Yesterday, I was under tremendous spiritual attack. Many forces of darkness have tried to come against me. A person who has done terrible things over and over again. He is gripped with deception and tries to make me responsible for his own mistakes. He’s never taken responsibility in his own life and always lies to cover his deeds. This has caused me much grief in my life and also others around him. I must constantly pray for guidance and there is a tendency to be codependent, so I must step back. This is when I must pray. 

The Lord gave me a word yesterday; 

God is our refuge and our strength an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. 

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God the holy place where the most high dwells. 

God is within her she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in an uproar kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts, The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. 

Yes, the city of our God, is the city that all of the people are coming to. As He has His people preparing the way. And we are His servants. As long as we obey Him, He is in us and we shall not fall. He shall help us. I know my life is in His hands and I love the ones He has called me to. 

There are times I wonder if others have had this same dream or vision as I’ve had. There were others in that room after all. There were others on those trains too. And what are all the songs about trains in relationship to “people get ready, there’s a train a comin?” Is all this just coincidence? God gives visions and dreams to people about the future events. 

These days are upon us and the trumpet blast is about to sound. He is coming!!!!
