Sam’s phone buzzed a little after 3:00 pm. It was Robin.
“Hey, you busy?”
Sam got up and went into the conference room and closed the door.
“Hey honey, how’s your day going?”
“I have been thinking about that dream you had last night”
“Yeah I have been too.” Sam replied “I can’t shake it actually”
“Sam, I think that dream was from God.”
“What do you mean?” Sam said.
“Sam, I looked it up in the bible. Listen to this. This is what it says in Joel 2:28” Robin read it to him
“And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. “
“What? Are your trying to tell me that I am old?” Sam tried making light of what Robin was saying. She was being serious and it was making him nervous.
“Sam, I am not kidding, please think about it.” Robin pleaded. “What time are you going to be home?”
Sam told her that he needed to work late so he would be home around eight or nine and asked her to have Ben do the chores.
Sam did think about the dream and had been thinking about it all day long. He went back to his office. They had a large contract that they needed to get out that week and this dream had interrupted his thought process.
Many of the other employees were leaving to go home. Aaron stopped by and poked his head in the door. “Hey, you working late tonight? He said.
“Yes, I have to get that Middleton Plaza job knocked out.” Sam said, remembering that Aaron was kind of a Jesus freak. “Hey Aaron, you got a minute?”
Aaron walked in and sat down “Sure what’s up?”
Sam got up and closed the door behind Aaron. “I am not sure how to say this, but I had a really weird dream last night. Between you me and the fence post it scared me pretty bad.”
Sam relayed the dream to Aaron and noticed that Aaron’s eyebrows went up a few times. “What do you think about that? Do you think there is anything to it?”
Aaron said “Well, hard telling Sam. I know in the bible it talks about in the end times that men will have dreams and visions. I think that is in the book of Joel if I am not mistaken. I would have to look it up for sure.”
“Aaron, do you think we are in the end times? Really?”
“Oh yeah, I do Sam. The bible says to keep an eye on Israel. That is God’s time piece. When you see what is going on over there right now you can tell that time is very short. The bible says that Jerusalem will be a stumbling block for all nations. Right now, because they are expanding settlements in Jerusalem the whole world is against it. The world is dictating what they can and can’t do in their own cities! How crazy is that? Would you put up with your neighbor telling you what you could and couldn’t do? So now, everyone wants to take them out. Every nation in the whole world is against them right now, just like it says in the bible. I tell you what Sam everything that is coming down was written in the bile and it is like it was a screenplay. All the actors are in place perfectly!”
“Do you think shit is going to hit the fan Aaron?”
“Yes, I do Sam! It sure says we will go through it in the book of Revelation. I hope I am not here to endure it though! I plan on being gone in the Rapture, but if not the Lord will get me through it. He always does! Have you ever read the book of Revelation Sam?”
“No, Aaron, I haven’t. I have heard how scary and hard to understand that book is and just kind of bypass that book and the book of Daniel as well.”
“Sam, I encourage you to read both of them especially the book of Revelation. Did you know that Revelation is the only book in the Bible that has a blessing associated from reading it. One at the beginning of it, chapter one verse three, I think and also one at the back of the book in chapter twenty two verse seven or eight”…
“Hmmm… okay Aaron, thanks. I appreciate it.” Sam said standing up.
Aaron stood up too and opened the door to leave and turned to Sam and said “Hey Sam, Have you accepted Jesus as your Savior?”
“Oh yeah, I did that at a Monty Edwards Evangelical Conference at the Super Dome in Seattle in ‘93. It was an all men’s Conference, it was amazing. In fact the Lord cured me of chewing tobacco there at the same time. It was awesome!”
Wow, that is cool! You actually got to see Monty Edwards? I think he is still alive isn’t he? He is like the greatest evangelist in America!” Aaron was impressed.
“Yeah I don’t know if he is or not. I think his son Tony took over his ministry.” Sam replied.
“Well Sam, if you ever want to sit down and talk about this end time stuff just let me know. I love it!”
“You know Aaron I might just take you up on that one of these days.”
“Don’t wait too long Sam. I would hate to see you left behind!” Aaron had an infectious smile that made Sam smile.
Sam closed the door behind Aaron and remembered the For Sale sign on the property where they went chukar hunting. Maybe Robin was right? Maybe God was telling him to get ready, to get prepared for a storm about to hit this world.
He looked for the photo and dialed the number.
