When I was 6 years of age missionaries came to our home and shared the good news of God’s kingdom with my parents. Sitting next to my mother hearing the missionaries talk about the “Fall of Man” (Gen 3:1-24), something struck my heart. After the missionaries were gone, I would reflect on the reason why man will have to live and then die. I would go to a solitary place and cry, praying to God to change things. I prayed that God should forgive the sins of Adam and Eve so that mankind may live forever according to His initial plan. I would cry, “Lord change things around so that I will not lose any of my family members someday”. Shortly after this I had a very intriguing dream. What I saw and experienced in that dream was beyond my imagination and left me stunned.
I found myself wandering along a deserted road in the middle of the day. Suddenly the whole sky was covered with blood. I was frightened, frantically trying to make sense of it. Just before I could fully comprehend what was happening to me, a transformation took place that cleared the sky leaving it white as snow. I stood in utter bewilderment.
I became surrounded by what looked like glass, separating and preventing me from going forwards or backwards. I witnessed people rising from a field in front of me and ascending into the sky. Behind me people were weeping and wailing in a huge burning fire.
I was trembling and inexplicably terrified. My entire body was cold and numb. I could feel my fingertips shaking, as a cold sensation ran through my spine. I lifted my voice crying and praying repeatedly asking, “Lord forgive my sins and save my soul”. I awoke still crying and repeating this prayer.
