Surely I Come Quickly

 Part 1 – The Faith of Jesus

I was balancing somewhat precariously on the pointed roof of a skyscraper helping someone whose voice and countenance were full of pure and holy Love. I knew I was with Jesus.

We sat on either side of a lightning rod and could see the miniature cars and tiny people dashing about far below us.

Jesus was quickly but carefully erecting a steel pole near the lightning rod, and I was doing my best to help Him. After the pole was in place, we hung a sign on it which said, “Surely I come quickly!

I was filled with joy helping my Savior with this work. However, upon realizing the solemnness of His words, a heavy weight settled on my heart. Jesus then showed me a rope and gave instructions on how to rappel off the top of the building.


He hooked into a harness and easily lowered Himself to the ground. Suddenly I was sitting on the roof peak alone. There will be a time when Jesus our intercessory Priest leaves Father’s heavenly sanctuary to come for His bride, the church of His pilgrims. When this time comes, we will be without a mediator.

After He was gone, I found my long rope coiled beside the lightening rod. However, as I dropped one end to the street below, the rope became hopelessly tangled.

Prolonged minutes ticked by as I tried to unravel the heap of rope, fearing that the sheer weight of it would cause me to lose my balance. Because my Guide was not with me, I could no longer look below without being terrified.

Pressing ever closer to the metal rod at the center of the building, I wrapped my arms around it, clutching tightly. The only thing I could hold onto was my Savior’s faith in His Father. He trusted God and so would I.

Now I heard my Guide calling out directions and encouraging me from the street far below. I wanted desperately to respond but was frozen with fear.

Still clinging to the lightning rod, I closed my eyes in prayer before attempting to untangle the heavy rope again. I prayed for victory in following Jesus’ words. I longed to be with my Savior again, whether it was at the pinnacle of a skyscraper or on the streets below.

When I finished praying, I opened my eyes and found a small fruit basket in front of me. It was attractively lined with a cloth printed in a fruit pattern.

Howl; for the day of the LORD is at hand;

it shall come as destruction from the Almighty.

I, the LORD, will show no mercy or pity when that time comes.

In my anger I will destroy the earth and every sinner who lives on it.

Isaiah 13:6, 9

With heart-rending moans, I clung even more tightly to the lighting rod. I wept for friends and family and countless others who would be destroyed. I wept for myself. Did I have His faith? Would His faith be enough? Did I have any unconfessed sins?Green-Envy-Zinnia-bouquet-from-my-Utah-garden-myflowerjournal-500x500Through my tears, I saw fresh cut flowers in a glass vase beside the fruit.

Unfolding the parchment within the bouquet, I read these words:

I am coming soon. Hold on to the faith you have,

so that no one can take away your crown.

Revelation 3:11

After reading these messages, the tangled rope became insignificant. I knew my Guide would sustain me by His faith.

Part 2 – The Word of God

The event on the skyscraper faded and I was now in a large conference center. I was looking at ministry displays of the speakers I had listened to earlier.

Most of the female attendees had congregated in the kitchen. They were eating their homemade delicacies and sharing the recipes together.


I had, however, absentmindedly laid down my favorite journal in which I had taken notes on the speakers’ talks. Determined to find the book, I returned to each booth I had visited earlier, but sadly, my journal had vanished. At this moment, I realized that human theories and ideas are simply chaff in the wind.

Now I was holding another book in my hands, and like my previous one, there was no title on the cover, but I recognized the book and hugged it close to my heart.

Part 3 – Our Heavenly Home

The scene changed to a forest trail where I was walking with about half a dozen other people. I moved on ahead, passing the others, until I was walking alongside our Guide. Once again, He was easily recognizable. I had no desire to overtake Him. Instead, I was delighted to walk by His side until we reached the mansions He has prepared for His beloved children.

Along the trail, I noticed a set of keys. I looked up at my Guide as He said, “Those are your oldest sister’s keys.”

My Guide and I reached a fork in the path.

I asked Him, “Which way leads home?”

He instructed me to turn to the right and I obeyed.

Then I noticed a bright light in the distance. It grew steadily brighter and brighter until, amid a flash of brilliant and dazzling light, I woke up.
