The Day of the Lord approaches

Dream received 27th February, 2019
The dream started with me and my childhood friend Peter both outside a school. We were looking up at a terrifying phenomenon in the sky: it was daytime but the sky was pitch-black night! It was completely dark when the sun should’ve been shining in all its glory. At first no stars appeared and I saw no moon, the sky was completely black as though the stars had completely vanished or dissolved. It was confounding and awe-inspiring and virtually impossible to get our heads around. Then suddenly what looked like a handful of yellow stars appeared and began shooting in different, erratic directions like they were being shaken by a violent and chaotic wind. They only appeared briefly before seemingly being swallowed again by the night sky.
An awful noise like a cacophony of waring trumpets crashing into each other suddenly resounded all around us, seeming to reverberate from the farthest reaches of the globe. It was as though the sound had caused or was a divine partner to the cataclysm going on in the heavens. I spoke to my friend Peter in a calm but loaded voice; “There are few times in my life I’ve ever been scared, but I’m scared”. We were still outside a school when I noticed a perfectly straight red brick wall to our right and my friend Peter’s red hair. Then the dream ended.
I believe my dream shows the Day of the Lord is close at hand. The Bible says this will be a day of darkness (Joel 2v10) where the sun and moon grow dark and the stars dissolve and fall like withered leaves (Isaiah 34v4). This is why no stars were visible at the beginning of my dream, then I saw a few ‘yellow’ stars, like leaves which turn yellow before falling to the ground. I’ve had other dreams which show the yellow appearance could refer to other ‘powers of the heavens’ (Luke 21v26) being shaken, specifically Nephilim UFOs (Matt. 24v37 & Gen. 6v4) and man-made/re-engineered UFOs.
The awful sound like a multitude of waring trumpets I believe is what Isaiah refers to in Isaiah 13v4 as the ‘tumultuous noise’ of the Lord gathering all the kingdoms of the earth together for battle as the ‘weapons of his indignation’ (v5). In the same passage Isaiah says this is the prelude to the eschatological Day of the Lord (v6). I was scared in the dream because this will be a fearful day unlike any other for the inhabitants of the world when this comes (v7).
Jeremiah also speaks of the ‘tumult’ of this day:
The tumult will resound to the ends of the earth,
for the Lord will bring charges against the nations;
he will bring judgment on all mankind
and put the wicked to the sword,’”
declares the Lord.
– Jeremiah 25v31
As Christians, the Bible says we’re not appointed to wrath, but to receive salvation by the Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thess. 5v9). This means we shouldn’t fear, while also making sure we remain on the rock of Christ, even as Peter remained on that rock despite going through ‘rocky’ times where he nearly parted ways from Jesus by denying Him (Luke 22v61-62). God will be the shade at our right hand (Psalm 121v5), a wall which provides protection if we continue to follow Him just as Peter did. While devastation will come to the world (symbolised by the red on the wall), the Holy Spirit will come upon His people in might and power. I believe my friend Peter’s red hair symbolised this, just like the fire that came upon the disciples’ heads in the Upper Room. This is also the place where Peter gave his prophetic sermon about the signs in the heavens which would signal the approaching Day of the Lord (Acts 2v20).
The imagery of the wall however does give us a clear and vital warning: like Amos’ vision of a wall built straight to plumb, and Jesus with a plumb line in His hand (Amos 7v7-8), so judgment will come upon God’s people in the days ahead if they’re not abiding in Christ as they should (uprightly/erectly), sincerely in the holy grace of God. Judgment always begins at the household of God before it comes to the world (1 Peter 4v17-18), and the coming judgment will either be a fire which refines us or take us down in a similar way that Ananias and Saphira were judged (Acts 5). It may even trap us in a day no one wants to find themselves (Matt. 24v13), or worse still lead to eternal destruction if we depart from Him (Heb. 3v12), so we need to be faithful to endure in the days ahead. Jesus said that he who endures to the end will be saved (Matt. 24v13).
