Dream: Who Is Controlling You? – Rachel Adamus
April 23, 2018
Dream received 4/22/18
Last night, I had a dream that I thought was something satanic to terrorize me, but I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. I started realizing that there was a meaning to it (that is, the Holy Spirit began giving me an interpretation).
In the dream, I was a spectator, as one who was present but not seen. Someone was standing next to me and told me, “There is a group of people who have special pointy teeth who all join a club–it is mandatory that such people join the club.” These people remind me of the imaginary vampires made popular by horror movies (though I have not watched such movies). Thus, for the sake of clarity, I will henceforth call them vampires. I remember feeling my teeth, but they weren’t pointy. Then, into the room where I was came a large group of such people. They came in like an army, as if being controlled. I remember thinking that I knew some of them. I watched as they entered some kind of cavern full of torches and performed evil and satanic rituals. What impressed me about the cavern was that it was full of blood and that the vampires had something to do with that–something evil. That was all I was allowed to see. I said in the dream to whoever was with me (maybe an angel), “I hardly believe those people are doing such awful things! I know them as such kind people!” After the vampires had performed their evil rituals, they went into another room where they were surprised to be greeted by some giant creature or witch, much taller and larger than them who was about to consume them, not in the sense of eating them but in absorbing their entities into itself. Those who had terrified others were now utterly terrified. Here the dream ended.
This seemed to come out of the most evil recesses of the Hollywood imagination, and yet, it was my dream (or nightmare). Yet again, I reiterate that I was a passive onlooker. I recall no sense of fear. The only emotion I remember was that of shock to see kind people I knew transformed into something so utterly evil.
It is impressed upon my spirit that this dream describes the true nature of the “Mark of the Beast.” The pointy teeth represented the Mark, though in reality, it will be placed into the hand or forehead. Some have interpreted this Mark to represent a mental and active assent to the Evil One through the Beast system (a government system that is antichrist)–that is, approval of, collaboration with, and cooperation with the Beast system. Others say it is more than that–a physical chip to be placed into people that will control those people to do the will of the Beast and render them incapable of obeying God, thereby making them unable to believe the gospel and be saved. In this way, people who had once seemed kind and still bore the image of their Creator will be utterly marred to be used as an army of Satan’s wicked devices. Now, I assert that the two understandings of this Mark are not contradictory. If a literal mark will result in a literal army of so-called vampires controlled by the devil and his Beast system, then there must first be a spiritual mark taken by those who would submit themselves to such a literal mark. For if one has mentally submitted his mind, will, and actions to this world system with all its sensual desires, he will inevitably submit himself to whatever the Beast system requests of him, so long as it appears to be for the benefit of his physical appetites which he has been appeasing all along. Thus, if a microchip is required for him to eat and survive, then he will surely take it without hesitation. The matter must therefore be settled now! Do you submit your whole being–soul and body–to Jesus Christ and all His commandments, or do you live to gratify the flesh? If now, you are not putting the flesh to death, you will surely die, and all the more sure will be your destruction when the final hour of testing comes! The antithesis of Satan’s Mark is Jesus’ Mark or Seal, guaranteeing our inheritance in the family of God. This seal is the Holy Spirit Himself.
Ephesians 1:13-14: “In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.”
Ephesians 4:30: “And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.”
What of the end of the dream? The great being poised to devour the army of vampires is the devil. His goal is to utterly use up and destroy God’s creation for his own ends. Though for a moment, this army of people may feel as if they are on the winning side and secure, they will suddenly find that their end is utter destruction.
John 10:10: “The thief [Satan] comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I [Jesus] came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
Romans 8:13: “For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.”
Revelation 14:9-12: “And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, ‘If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name.’
“Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.”
Revelation 13:16-17: “Also it [the beast rising out of the earth–a government system] causes both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.”
