In the summer of 2007, I had this weird dream that I still remember till this day. I don’t remember all of it, but I can tell you parts of it that stood out. For a strange reason I had a death penalty. I was innocent, but realized that there was nothing I could do. And I struggled with the idea that I knew I was going to die very soon.

Here’s where it gets strange…

I had to wear a suicide vest and someone else was to detonate it. I was in a solitary place so no one else was to get hurt and our government ran it. I guess that is how they implemented the death penalty for me.

But I had convinced the authorities that I could detonate it myself and I just wanted to do it when I was ready for it. They agreed and so there I was washing Tupperware (I have no clue why) getting ready for the moment when I was ready to go. I had my vest on already.

I was taking a little time to get ready and then I saw the authorities walk by a panoramic window of where I was and I knew they were looking for me so I opened the door and yelled for them and they turned around to come back to me. They told me that I was not to detonate it myself and that the high court had decided that an authority figure was to detonate it at an unspecified time.

I was shocked because now I would die without knowing when and someone else was to determine the time. I anguished with the thought that I had no control over the situation.

Then I woke up.

It made me think about our lives. We think we have all the time in the world to get ready for Jesus. But in reality, you and I are just a heartbeat away… and we do not determine the time when our life is over. So we need to be ready today.

Are you ready?

Matthew 24:44
“Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”

Revelation 19:7
“Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.”
