Let me begin this message by saying that I always take seriously time spent in the Word of God and endeavor to exercise due diligence in sermon preparation for presentation of the Gospel, be it pulpit or Christian radio ministry. While I consider any message proclaimed in the Name of the Lord of great importance, I firmly believe this one is of utmost importance, for both believers (saved) and unbelievers (unsaved) alike!
This message is inspired by a dream that my son-in-law, Matt Huff, had and subsequently shared with me on Christmas Day (2010). After hearing the details, I asked him to carefully write it down since I not only believe it to be from the Lord but also strongly feel led by the Holy Spirit to provide the interpretation thereof, according to the prophetic World of God. Bear in mind that the Bible says, “Surely the Lord God will do nothing without revealing His secret to His servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7 AMP). Here then is “Matt’s Dream,” written in his own words…
Joel 1:15; 2:1-2 [KJV]—Alas for the day! for the day of the Lord is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come. Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, of it is nigh at hand. A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness…Vs. 11…for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide [endure] it?
2 Thess. 2:1-3 [KJV]—Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.
Acts 2:16-21 [KJV]—But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaids I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood and fire, and vapour of smoke; The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
