Hello, DovesI want to share something that I have never spoken of out side of my family... first a little background... and would like to see if anyone had any insight...I was born in August 17, 1967 and born again around 1st grade, lead by my older Brother, and have recommitted my life to Christ many times throughout my youth, to make sure... My wife was born again in her young teen years. My wife and I were finally baptized about 7 years ago at Grace Church, Eden Prairie. I grew up in the Baptist... now nondenominational church... but, since the fall of Dr. Eagan from Grace Church and the rise of the whole emerging church trend, my family has been just doing church at home, as part of our day-to-day... we used to be heavily involved with a core group at church, but that has since trended away and made it very difficult to fellowship without an organized group of peers to go to... so we have been pretty much alone for the past 6 or 7 years...My hobby as a young teen, rather than sports... was to dig into the scriptures and diagram and draw what is literally described in the Ryrie Study Bible... I even charted the geneologies until I started working and life got too busy... then later revisited and diagramed a literal time line based strictly on the Biblical record... anyway, I have always had a passion and focus on the rapture and end times to the point that the subject is all I would talk about... this has caused allot of tension with my family over the years and with co-workers... friends... even church family...When I was still living at home, late '80s, just before leaving for MN, back to my birth place, I had a dream that I was standing on the front steps one starry night looking up... suddenly I experienced what I recall your cliche space-warp like star-trek, including the physical sensation of rushing up... then I woke up disappointed that it was only a dream... only time I ever had that dream...Since around 1992 or so, I have been having experiences that I mentioned to my mother, early on, but she warned me not to think too much about it or entertain it... maybe cautious because of my brother... explained below...Basically, something like an unusual hindsight coincidence... I would be going about my day when some subject or phrase that I don't recall being prompting from anything I had heard or seen... I had not been watching TV, listening to the radio and don't recall any other suggestion prompting me to think about it ... something seemingly insignificant would cross my mind and I would think about it for a moment... usually something like a phrase or something having to do with media... I continue on with my day without a second thought... usually within a day or so something would be on, or I would hear something in the media that would cause me to recall what crossed my mind earlier...I recall having the experience occasionally, maybe a month or months apart, from the early '90s until about a year ago... I had never kept a journal or log of the experiences since my mother warned me against entertaining finding out about it, until last December...I recorded these three... they don't make any sense to me now, but apparently I thought I would remember something about them when I logged them... because I didn't write any other notes about it... other than the first date is the time it crossed my mind and the second date is the date I recalled the thought after a direct prompting in the media or conversation...plastic bag 12/21 12/22albania 12/23 12/24red (hallmark) 12/24 12/25Since then, I have had several more that I have been sharing with my wife at the moment it would happen, but I don't recall what they were...By the way... I have been noticing the 11:11 time thing as well lately... just happened this evening when I was getting up from a nap.By the way... just for trivia.. our birthdays are...My birthday, again:08/17/1967My wife's birthday:12/11/1967Married: 06/29/1991Children:04/04/199811/11/2001Seeing my brother an myself side-by-side... you would not believe we are related... I am a mid-western web designer/developer programmer type and my brother is a northwestern metal scrap collector who looks and dresses like a mountain man...My brother was conceived before my parents planned to marry and my brother's birthday was 04/06/1966... He has had allot of darkness in his life since childhood... and was counseled by a pastor arranged by our mother for intercessory support who apparently discovered that he was being harassed by a legion... He claims to be saved, but still talks about subjects that seem crazy or dangerous, like sitting and visiting with angels... he describes what seem like dark angels... he claims to be able to leave his body and send spirits to do things for him...My younger sister's birthday was 05/23/1970 or 1971... my bad for not being sure... anyway she claims to be born again, but does not want to discuss prophesy and her life is centered around keeping up with pop-media and Hollywood... and is still a tax dependent of our Mother who is still working as an Emergency room nurse and drives over an hour to work each day... our father died of brain cancer 11 years ago... the year after my older daughter was born.
