"Steve W The hour has come and away we go!"

Steve, as I was reading your post just now on the Doves, a random LP record was playing in the background from my late father's vast collection that I inherited some years back. This phenomenon has been happening a lot lately, but just as I was reading these words from your post:
________________________________________________________________________
2) Yesterday morning I awoke at 5:00 am. While fully awake but still in bed, I either felt, sensed, or heard  these words:
 
The hour has come. I will descend, you will ascend. There I will meet you and take you away to be with me forever.

Well, out of hundreds of LP record albums I randomly had chosen any old one which happened to be a collection of Broadway musical songs called "This Is Broadway's Best A Two-Record Set of Great Show-Stoppers" and this song was playing which I didn't even know but I began to notice the lyrics were once again matching what I was reading (the section of your post above) at the same instant right when the song says:
 
The overture is about to start,
You cross your fingers and hold your heart,
It's curtain time and away we go!

Here are the lyrics in entirety (I looked them up) I underlined other significant lines: 
 
Another op'nin', another showIn Philly, Boston or Baltimo',
A chance for stage folks to say hello,
Another op'nin' of another show.
Another job that you hope, at last,
Will make your future forget your past,
Another pain where the ulcers grow,
Another op'nin' of another show.
Four weeks, you rehearse and rehearse,
Three weeks and it couldn't be worse,
One week, will it ever be right?
Then out o' the hat, it's that big first night!
The overture is about to start,
You cross your fingers and hold your heart,
It's curtain time and away we go!
Another op'nin',
Just another op'nin' of another show.
Another op'nin', another show
In Philly, Boston or Baltimo',
A chance for stage folks to say hello,
Another op'nin' of another show.
Another job that you hope, at last,
Will make your future forget your past,
Another pain where the ulcers grow,
Another op'nin' of another show.
Four weeks, you rehearse and rehearse,
Three weeks and it couldn't be worse,
One week, will it ever be right?
Then out o' the hat, it's that big first night!
The overture is about to start,
You cross your fingers and hold your heart,
It's curtain time and away we go!
Another op'nin',
Just another op'nin' of another show.
 
Here is Steve W's post and it all seems to match these select lyrics that I just "happened" to have selected and was hearing play as I read the below exciting post! I love it!!!

"The hour has come !"

Could it really be so? What so many of us have longed and desired for ? Is this really it? Just take a minute, close your eyes, imagine ascending through the air with millions of others believers. At some point we literally see
Jesus  for the first time. We then, within nano seconds, look upon the most indescribable beauty our eyes have ever gazed upon. The gates of heaven are opened wide and we (the throng of saints) come pouring in to be greeted by those who have gone before us. We feel and know love like we never have. We experience freedom from temptation for the first time in our lives. Our physical and emotional pain is no more. Our senses take in sights ,smells ,touches ,and melodies we
have never known. Yet it is not overwhelming for us. Everything seems right, because everything IS right. You are finally HOME! The longing your heart has endured is over. To really meditate upon this seems almost unreal. Yes, we know
intellectually this will happen, but our human minds can only dimly comprehend what we will soon experience.
 
 
I would like to relate two things I believe are from the Lord.
 
1) Monday, while meditating and praying, I saw myself in heaven. I was being escorted (either by an angel or Jesus) through a wide open area that looked like the green rolling hills of Ireland. We came to a small wooden
arched bridge that spanned a small river. I sat down and looked up at a very high hill. Perched upon this hill was an enormous structure. It almost looked like a castle in its appearance. There were many stories. It was still
far off in the distance so I couldn't see details. As I looked upon the structure in awe and wonderment, I knew what this was. No words had to be exchanged. This was the" place" Jesus had prepared for me. The amazing thing was
no other structures were surrounding it. It seemed to be all by itself.
 
As I pondered this lovely thought, it occued to me that we ALL have a "place" that is designed especially for us. We can only imagine!
 
 
2) Yesterday morning I awoke at 5:00 am. While fully awake but still in bed, I either felt, sensed, or heard  these words:
 
The hour has come. I will descend, you will ascend. There I will meet you and take you away to be with me forever.  
 
 
Blessings,
