After that meeting I was driving north on Interstate 75 between Cincinnati and Dayton. I was praying and praising the Lord for a great meeting of brothers and sisters in Christ.
As I drove I was listening to the radio,
flipping from channel to channel, trying to find a Christian
Suddenly I came across a radio station playing the "Titles" theme from the movie "Chariots of Fire". Titles I completely lost consciousness of driving and everything else, and I saw a beautiful cloudless, sunny sky. As I watched, a white cloud, shaped like a big barge, appeared, coming out of another dimension, and the Lord Jesus, clothed in the glory of God, seated on the barge of clouds with myriads of angels attending Him.
Suddenly, as the second part of the music played with the tinkling of many chimes, I saw the Lord stand up and move His hand in a sweeping arc toward all the earth. Immediately His people were changed in the twinkling of an eye, somewhat like popcorn popping. After they were transformed, they were caught up by the angels to be with Jesus on His cloud barge.
Then, sadly, as the music receded, the cloud with the Lord and His angels and His gathered, transformed people disappeared back into that other dimension, leaving behind everybody else.
Suddenly I realized that I was still driving my car on Interstate 75, and that several minutes had passed during the vision. I was amazed and overwhelmed with the glory and majesty of what I had just seen and experienced! As I drove on I resumed my search for a Christian radio station, and immediately found the same song playing on the very next station I came to. The vision repeated itself!
I trust that this experience is from God, since it aligns with Scripture and has been a source of encouragement to me for many years. May it encourage every believer in Jesus, and challenge every person who has not yet received Him as Savior and Lord, as the day of the Lord draws nearer every day!
