A Lamp unto My Feet

Dream received June 16, 2015

I was sitting alone in a small room, drifting in and out of sleep.

A man walked up beside my chair. Placing his hand on my shoulder, he gently Angel_of_Light widewoke me up. I thought I was alone in the room so I was startled when I felt his touch. In my sleepy stupor, I looked up to see a tall, shining man. I knew it was an angel. On his face was a look of sincere concern.

“Are you ready?” he asked.

Somehow I knew that he was asking whether I was ready for the time of trouble soon to come upon God’s people. “Of course I am ready!” I said to myself. To my dismay, however, the answer “yes” wouldn’t come out. My sleepy head nodded “yes,” but the word “yes” was stuck in my throat. I couldn’t seem to shake off my drowsiness.

The angel looked even more concerned when I could not answer his question. Then I realized the truth: I was not ready! The angel left my side as quickly and quietly as he had appeared.

I woke up.

Fully conscious now, I prayed earnestly, “Father, wake me from my stupor so I can prepare for the troublesome times ahead.”

Then I asked God, “What do I need to do to get ready?”

About an hour later, as I was sleeping again, an intense light flooded my mind. That Light was my answer.

Verses that came to mind after this dream:

Awake, sleeping ones! And arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light. So be very careful how you live, making the best use of the time. Live wisely, not like fools. Ephesians 5:14, 15.

We are God’s watchmen. He commands us, “Sleep not! Watch and be ready! The foe is lurking near, ready at any moment, should you become lax and drowsy.”

Your Word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105.

For the commandment of the law is a lamp and a light; a way of life; reproof also and correction. Proverbs 6:23.

We need the truth of the living Word to be ready. Scripture is our defense to stand through the last great conflict. His Word is a chart pointing out every waymark on our journey to heaven. We need the Law of God written on our hearts because it teaches us His holy requirements. His divine power and wisdom are present in His Word and in His Law.
