Preparing for the Blinding Flash

In a dream vision, the Holy Spirit took me to what looked like a movie theater or an auditorium with rows of seating. The place was packed with people and an usher seated me near an aisle. Something was going to happen soon that required us to be seated indoors and restful and calm. The ushers handed out items for us to cover our eyes with. For a second, I remembered the 3-D movies that required viewers to wear special glasses. But these “glasses” were more like goggles one uses to protect our eyes from the bright UV light when in a tanning bed in a tanning salon. When we put these glasses on, the lenses were so dark we were practically blind. The usher also passed around what looked like black soft contact lenses for those in the audience who knew how to insert contact lenses. Once the contacts were inserted, we would be temporarily blind. Since I knew how to use contacts, I took a set of these lenses and held the case in my hand.
As the dream vision progressed, when I sat with my vision completely darkened by the black contact lenses, I suddenly realized why all of us were gathered together to do this exercise. A nuclear exchange would soon take place, and because we were above ground, if we were not directly hit or near enough to the blast to be incinerated, we would see a brilliant flash of light. Our eyes were being protected so that we would not be blinded by the nuclear flash. If we survived, we would emerge able to see enough to help ourselves and others.

Isaiah 29:9-10 NIV
9 Be stunned and amazed,
blind yourselves and be sightless;
be drunk, but not from wine,
stagger, but not from beer.
10 The Lord has brought over you a deep sleep:
He has sealed your eyes (the prophets);
he has covered your heads (the seers).
Isaiah 42:6-7 NIV
6 “I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness;
I will take hold of your hand.
I will keep you and will make you
to be a covenant for the people
and a light for the Gentiles,
7 to open eyes that are blind,
to free captives from prison
and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.
Isaiah 42:16 NIV
16 I will lead the blind by ways they have not known,
along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
I will turn the darkness into light before them
and make the rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do;
I will not forsake them.
Isaiah 42:18-25 NIV
18 “Hear, you deaf;
look, you blind, and see!
19 Who is blind but my servant,
and deaf like the messenger I send?
Who is blind like the one in covenant with me,
blind like the servant of the Lord?
20 You have seen many things, but you pay no attention;
your ears are open, but you do not listen.”
21 It pleased the Lord
for the sake of his righteousness
to make his law great and glorious.
22 But this is a people plundered and looted,
all of them trapped in pits
or hidden away in prisons.
They have become plunder,
with no one to rescue them;
they have been made loot,
with no one to say, “Send them back.”
23 Which of you will listen to this
or pay close attention in time to come?
24 Who handed Jacob over to become loot,
and Israel to the plunderers?
Was it not the Lord,
against whom we have sinned?
For they would not follow his ways;
they did not obey his law.
25 So he poured out on them his burning anger,
the violence of war.
It enveloped them in flames, yet they did not understand;
it consumed them, but they did not take it to heart.
John 9:39 NIV
39 Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind.”
Acts 9:3-9 NIV
3 As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. 4 He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”
5 “Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked.
“I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied. 6 “Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”
7 The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone. 8 Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus. 9 For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.
