I had this dream when I was a teenager, around 1996. I’ve never forgotten it, but it’s not a dream that just comes to mind out of the blue, and I feel the Lord has brought the memory of it to my current attention because it fits the times. This is the dream and a corresponding vision:
I was at my childhood home, and I opened the front door and walked out onto the covered porch. The wind was blowing, high pitched howling, and the atmosphere and everything outside was shrouded in a sickly yellowish green haze.
My grandmother was standing at the front corner, next to one of the wooden beams, and she was looking out across and down the street. I walked up to her and asked her what was going on with the weather, and she turned to me and said in a flat, ominous tone, “It’s Halloween.”
I then found myself on our second floor at the end of the hallway. My bedroom was directly down the hall in front of me. The hallway began to grow in length, and all the other doors on the floor started opening and closing. The lights flickered out and the only light I saw was from the lightning outside. It almost looked like it reached inside the house. The noise was deafening, but I could hear a commotion inside of my bedroom.
I started walking down the lengthened hallway, doors opening and closing as I passed, and I was careful that I did not look into any of the rooms. I kept repeating, “I am a child of God. You cannot hurt me” over and over again under my breath.
I finally reached my bedroom door. I knew there was something in there, but I knew I had to fight it. I steeled myself and opened the door. The curtains were blowing in wildly, and the lightning flashed outside, illuminating the silhouette of a large, winged creature with long arms and legs on my bed. It was ripping and tearing my bed to pieces. I did not go inside the room, but stood in the doorway. I was so afraid, but I said to the creature, “I am a child of God. You cannot hurt me!”. It stopped and looked at me, and I said it again, this time with force. “I AM A CHILD OF GOD! YOU CANNOT HURT ME!”. Then the creature let out a scream, the likes of which I had never heard. It rose up and flew out of he window with an otherworldly screech and a flash of lightning. Then I woke up.
We know Halloween is 10/31. A few weeks ago, I was on the phone with my best friend, and I looked over at the clock, and I felt my stomach drop. It was 10:31am. That clock held my gaze for what seemed like an eternity, and I snapped out of it as soon as it changed to 10:32. A sickening dread come over me, and I thought, “My God… my God… They’re going to open the pit.”
Go inside your homes. Close the doors, windows, and curtains. Gather your family together and PRAY. Plead the blood of Jesus over your family and pets so that what’s coming in the darkness will pass over you and your household.
Take courage and do not fear, brothers and sisters. The battle has already been won. Shalom.
