Dream of Christians Being Beheaded, and Going to Heaven

Christ’s small sheep
In the year 2012, I had many dreams about christian persecution and the mark of the beast. Amongst all of them, I feel led to share this one dream that left me so full of hope and joy.
In the dream, I was being chased. The person chasing me was a man I didn’t know but his features were so distict (especially his eyes), that I would never forget what he looked like (this is an important detail that I will explain later). He finally caught me after sneaking up behind me from behind a tree located in front of a cemetary. I remember him taking out a long knife, I told him that if it was my time to go, I accepted it from God. With one swing, my head flew, and all of a sudden I leapt out of my body. I looked back down at my body which was now laying on the ground without a head. I looked at my ‘new’ body and it was all lit up, I felt very light like I was floating and I noticed that I was wearing a linen white gown. Suddenly, I was in a boat that had a lamp attached to it shining brightly. I was not alone, thousands of others just like me were in boats with lamps, also dressed in white. I understood that they had also been martyred. Our boats were all connected and we were slowly floating as on a liquid ladder up to heaven. Once in heaven, we were all led by an angel into a large banquet hall with lamps at every table. Oh, I can still remember the excitement we had at the prospect of banqueting with Christ! We asked him when the dinner would be, he told us that we would dine with Christ once all those who were invited arrived. The dream ended here.
After pondering and praying over the dream, the Lord brought to mind some scriptures:
Jacobs ladder ascending into heaven
He had a dream, and behold, a ladder was set on the earth with its top reaching to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. And behold, the LORD stood above it and said, “I am the LORD, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie, I will give it to you and to your descendants.”
Virgins with lamps
Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. 8 The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’
9 “‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’
10 “But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.
* In the dream, only those who were ‘invited’ came to the banquet hall.
Souls under the alter of heaven
When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained. They called out in a loud voice, “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?” Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full number of their fellow servants, their brothers and sisters, were killed just as they had been.
Despite the beheading, this was really a joyful dream! I was actually surprised by how quickly I went from my body to this new lit body, it was actually exhilerating!
The last thing this dream revealed, I only understood once I moved to a new church in 2013. There, I met the murderer in my dream, he was an elder of my new church. This last lesson was important, it reminded me that there are people in our churches who are not who they seem to be, wolves in sheeps clothing, people who will be part of the persecution of saints!
I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock;
2 Corinthians 11:13-15
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, pray with me that we would have the faith and patience to endure what’s coming! Pray that each of us would be found with enough oil in our lamp! Pray that God would give us all dreams and visions to prepare our hearts for what’s coming! May we repent and turn away from sins that make our lamps leak oil! Our patience will be rewarded with such joy as we sit together at the banquet table with Christ and commune with him forever! May God bless you, protect you and encourage you in your walk with him!
12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
8 You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.
