Things to Come
Dream: Things to Come
It was dark as night and I was standing in my front yard close to the street that passed in front of my house. I looked to my left and saw a faint white light in the road which seemed to be slowly moving in my direction. There was a old stoic looking gentleman sitting in a lawn chair behind me and slightly to my right. There was an authoritative spirit about him. He didn’t have to say anything for me to know that he was in charge. I turned to the gentleman and said, “There’s a faint small blinking light coming up the road which looks a lot like a firefly’s light.” As the light got closer, to my surprise, I could see it was on the back of a very strange looking creature. The creature was black and approximately four inches long and two inches wide. It had six legs that went up at an angle about four inches then bent downward to the ground six inches. It looked like something from a cartoon. As the creature passed by in front of me the light changed from blinking to a solid white light. The light had increased in size by several times and appeared to be used to illuminate prey when the creature was on the hunt. The creature passed my yard to my right and went down the dark road. It went a short way down the then It stopped next to a tree.
Then I heard a commotion in the tree where the creature had stopped. Over and over again I could hear something thrashing in the tree. I stared at the tree for awhile before I saw a large black bird fluttering around in the branches apparently trying to catch something. Then the bird launched itself powerfully deep into the branches and I heard a scream. A man dressed in all black clothes came running out from under the tree, up the road past where I was located and continued running down the road. As he passed us he continued to scream in great pain. I could see that the black bird had its claws and beak dug into the man’s lower back, feasting on his flesh.
I nor was the stoic man was afraid of these creatures for we knew we were protected from them by God. Even though It was horrific to witness we knew the man had refused to repent to God for his sins, thus he was suffering a judgment from God.
Suddenly, I awoke startled from what I had just witnessed.

I have been asking God to show me things to come. One of the things was the coming earthquake to the central United States which is an article here titled, The Vision of the Coming Judgment. When I went into prayer that same morning I was seeking God as to what the dream meant. I felt led to read Revelation 9. The verses in Revelation 9 tell of a time on earth when God will command the angel of the bottomless pit Abaddon (Heb: "destruction"/Gk: "the Destroyer") to open the abyss and release locust of such a great number that they darken the sky. The locust are not allowed to kill nor attack those whom have the seal of God on their forehead , but only attack those who refused to repent of their sins before God. The torment period will last for five months. This all occurs when the angel sounds the 5th trumpet. This is the first “woe.”
Judgments will continue at an even more frequent and alarming pace in 2012. It is God's will that none should perish but Revelation 9:20-21 show that even when severe judgments have occurred those who were not killed by the plagues did not repent of the works of their hands. They continued to worship demons and followed after their idols, nor did they repent of their murders, sorceries, immorality or thefts.
Time is running out for the people of this planet to repent. Sinners don’t know this is soon coming upon this world. Who’s going to warn them?
Then the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from heaven which had fallen to the earth; and the key of the bottomless pit was given to him. He opened the bottomless pit, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit. Then out of the smoke came locusts upon the earth, and power was given them, as the scorpions of the earth have power. They were told not to hurt the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree, but only the men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. And they were not permitted to kill anyone, but to torment for five months; and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings a man. And in those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death flees from them. Rev. 9:1-6
They have tails like scorpions, and stings; and in their tails is their power to hurt men for five months. They have as king over them, the angel of the abyss; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in the Greek he has the name Apollyon. Rev. 9:10-11
The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, so as not to worship demons, and the idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; and they did not repent of their murders nor of their sorceries nor of their immorality nor of their thefts. Rev. 9:20-21
Jesus said, "I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.” Lk 13:3
