I listened to someone testifying of a dream so vivid he couldn’t tell if he was out of body or in a vision. Normally dreams get weird fast, so he ruled that out as this was more of an experience. Without relating all the details, I’ll nutshell it for you.
He was in a huge stadium setting, millions in attendance. Each person was holding stack of books. Each person was to approach a podium where Jesus stood and place their books, representing their deeds on earth, onto the podium. Jesus would call down fire on the books. What was useless would burn instantly. What was left would be converted to jewels and placed in a crown that Jesus would place on the person’s head, smile, and say “well done, good and faithful servant.”
Those whose entire life’s works, thoughts, and words was consumed by the fire, leaving nothing, would be told to enter the Kingdom. No smiles, no words of praise, only a look of disappointment from the Savior who gifted him or her with talent and opportunity.
Life can be wasted even if you’re saved and loved the Lord. I personally don’t think we make wrong turns that can’t be corrected. but to face Jesus with nothing?
If this was a prophetic vision instead of heartburn, there is a points system. The puzzle is — what makes points with God?
I know what I think. I want to know what other people think. Maybe I’m wrong. Tell me how.
