Approaching God’s Judgment

In a dream vision I found myself in my spirit body, rising from the Earth on a glorious sunny day. I heard the music of brass instruments calling those of the Earth to attention and invitation. As I floated above the landscape, I saw many others rising also in their spirit bodies, and some appeared confused and frightened. “DON’T BE AFRAID,” I told them. “WE ARE GOING BEFORE GOD. HE IS MERCIFUL. HE IS OUR FATHER.” I beckoned to them to follow and I kept them company, cheering them on. “HAVE COURAGE. YOU CAN DO IT,” I urged them, even as I urged myself on. I did not know how the judgment proceedings would unfold, yet I knew I was participating in God’s plan for creation and I must TRUST IN GOD.
Soon we arrived at an enormous multilevel structure full of balconies with boxes, much like the interior of a grand opera house. We each flew to our respective boxes, which had OUR NAMES WRITTEN on them. We took our places and STOOD PRAYERFULLY AWAITING OUR TIME BEFORE GOD THE FATHER. Though we were all sinners, most of us knew God the Father loved us, sending his only Son Jesus Christ to die on a cross to atone for our sins and save us. Yes, of course WE FELT FEAR, BUT THANKFULLY OUR HOPE OF MERCY AND SALVATION IN JESUS CHRIST WAS STRONGER.
As we approached our judgment before God the Father, WE COULD NOT LET OUR FEAR AND THE MEMORY OF OUR SINS, CONFESSED AND UNCONFESSED, OVERTAKE US. We acknowledged our sin, but also HAD FAITH IN THE MERCIFUL NATURE OF GOD THE FATHER AND THE LOVING SACRIFICE JESUS MADE FOR OUR SALVATION. As I stepped up to the edge of the balcony box, where a small chain hung across it to prevent me from falling, I placed my hope in Christ. The dream vision ended.
Prodigal children, RETURN CONTRITE TO GOD THE FATHER AND ACCEPT THE LOVING LORDSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST. Then in rejoicing and welcome, YOU WILL HOLD HIS HAND AT THE END OF TIME.
Matthew 24:30-31 (NIV)
30 “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. 31 And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 (NIV)
13 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.
1 John 1:9 (NIV)
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
