"Amazing Rapture dream with a visit to heaven"

Hello Doves, I am on day 3 of my fast that I talked about in my video in my other post and last night had the most amazing rapture dream that I wanted to share.  I have had many rapture dreams in the past, but have not had one in a while and never one as long or detailed as the one I had last night so I wanted to write as much of it down as I could before I forgot it and thought I would send it for all of the doves to maybe find some encouragement.

So in my dream -
It started as I  was looking up at the night time sky and saw an amazing sight - a huge heavenly body, like a planet, but bigger and brighter than the moon and it was golden in color.  It looked similar to the earth except it was of gold with rivers of blue .

I quickly went inside to find my family to call them out to see this great sight and as I did my clothes were transformed and changed into a suit of fine clothes, and as I found my daughter and son, their clothes were also transformed.  I did not find my wife immediately, but eventually I did, she was doing something in the kitchen somewhat oblivious to what was going on, but as soon as I found her, her clothes were also transformed - so I told everyone hurry, we have to get outside, it must be time- and we walked out the sliding glass door onto my back porch and when I looked up in the sky I saw the heavenly body still there and now a scripture printed against the night sky - I saw Exodus 1:8 (actually I may be a little dyslexic because when I woke up this morning the actual words of the scripture that I saw across the heavens are actually found in Exodus 8:1) These are the words that I saw-


And that was it, up we went, we saw Jesus also dressed in fine clothes similar to ours along with crowds and crowds of people.  Now normally this is when my dream would end, many times before I have had rapture dreams thinking it was the real thing only to awake at the moment I was being raptured - but this dream continued on, so much so that I really thought  that this was the real thing and that it had finally happened.

We arrived in “heaven” (or what seemed like heaven - now in retrospect knowing it was only a dream) and the first place we were taken was what seemed like sort of a “processing center” for new arrivals and there was what seemed like a movie theater there playing a movie that did not at all seem appropriate for heaven, it looked like some R rated movie with an inappropriate bedroom scene playing.  I asked someone(an angel?) about this questioning why what seemed to be an inappropriate thing was allowed in heaven?  and was told - some people labor for gold crowns and others only get a green, perishable crown.

This made me think of Paul’s words in 1 Corinthians 9:24-25 ”Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.“  

And also 1 Corinthians 3:11-15 ”For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.“

In retrospect, now being awake this was probably not an R rated movie, but perhaps the scenes of someone’s life being examined?

After the “processing center” my family and I were set free to wander “heaven” I was excited knowing that I would soon bump into my loved ones who had gone on before me, my mom and grandparents - but more than this I knew that my time would come soon when I would get my own personal intimate time to be face to face with Jesus!  This thrilled me and I couldn’t get it off my mind!  In the meantime my family and I wandered and explored.

It was a mixture of city and beautiful nature!  The nature was exquisite!  Beautiful rivers and trees and birds and animals and everything an outdoorsy nature loving person could love times a million!  But equally as entertaining was the city life! We wandered from restaurant to restaurant and shop to shop and it was amazing because my wife and I would be talking about something we enjoyed on earth and immediately our thoughts would transport us right there!  Place to place, we could not believe the variety and abundance we were witnessing and of course everything was without cost!  But all the while, I was still getting more and more excited because I knew that soon I would be called to get to go and see and worship the King!  This brief description cannot match the places I visited or describe the things I saw - it seemed like I was there for several hours!

By now I was fully convinced that I had been finally raptured and released from my labor on earth and that I was in my forever home in heaven and then a light snore from my wife woke me up!

However I went back to sleep and dreamt that I visited my brother in Florida and re-lived the whole thing in a second dream as I told him and his wife all about it.

I am really excited for that day when it happens for real one day, maybe not exactly as I dreamt it, but surely it must be soon! I hope that you are all getting excited also Doves, and that this has encouraged you!  I know we are all tired butI think we are in the final stretch of the marathon-  keep running the race with endurance and keep building with precious stones so that you can get the crown which does not perish!

In the Shalom of Yeshua, the risen Christ!
Your watching brother,
Derrick Drew
