    Sorry for the long read but I wanted to get as much as I can typed out while I still remember so I could reference it for myself at a later time. I didn't get a lot of sleep last night because my son was coughing a lot (by the way, if you get a chance please pray for him) and had to move him to the living room at around 5 am because I didn't want him to wake up our infant baby.

    After about an hour I was able to sleep and started dreaming. I dreamed I was in foreign soil which seemed to be an Asian country. I was in someone else's house ( I can't remember what I was doing there) but my family was with me. There was a lady that came to the house who's son was sick and offered to help her any way I can (I work in the medical field). I was able to do an assessment and reassured her and her son that they would be okay. After that my family and I left and boarded a bus. This house we were in was right next to the ocean and when I sat down I noticed that the water was an eerie red hue color. I asked the bus driver why it was that color but I don't remember what he said. As the bus started leaving a huge tsunami came upon us and the bus we were in floated away to dry pavement where we were able to drive off and escape the resurging tsunami. While in the bus I remember searching my phone trying to find any news on floods and stumbled upon a map with what seemed to be radar imaging of floods. My attention was North America (for obvious reasons) and saw that the eastern border was basically wiped out with other parts of the world showing patches of major flooding as well. We remained in the bus till I woke up. It was a horrific experience but I remembered just lifting my hands and praising Him regardless.

    I guess my question would be regarding the tribulation. I've been a believer for quite some time but never really studied on the tribulation and whether or not believers will go through it (or some of it) or just be raptured before all that takes place. This past Labor Day I spoke to an uncle who graduated from bible college and we got to talk briefly about the tribulation and he told me we would not face these things that this is one of our "great hopes". I felt at peace after discussing this with him but this dream started me thinking. I understand that there's such thing as pre, post and other kinds of beliefs regarding this but just curious what is the truth?

    Your dream is encouraging in that you’re family is protected from the coming storm which some refer to as the “Perfect Storm.” Not really sure what exactly is mean by “Perfect” other than it’s a shaking to hopefully wake up secular humanity from their sleep walk to hopefully become infused with His Spirit and eternal salvation.

    Your dream is also a warning for certain friends, relatives and/or strangers that the Lord’s Spirit brings across your path to share the Love of His Good News. He will prompt and lead you with that inward unction (still small voice) giving you words of knowledge so you’ll know your witness is not by your own might, but by His Spirit.

    More than a few have had dreams that literally or indirectly equate to: “ARE YOU READY.” Leading evangelists can’t agree with each supporting their view with scripture whether it be Pre, Mid or Post. Paul Crouch commented, a few years before passing on, about his position which he called Pan-Trib, “It will all Pan-Out for those that Love Jesus.”

    The real question seems to be who are the REAL Christians? Those true Followers of Christ that are led by His Holy Spirit. It sounds like you are on the right path (the narrow path) keeping your eyes focused on Him and your concern/love for others.

    Proverbs 3:5-7 ~ NKJV
    Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    And lean not on your own understanding;
    In all your ways acknowledge Him,
    And He shall direct your paths.
    Do not be wise in your own eyes;
    Fear the Lord and depart from evil.
    It will be health to your flesh,
    And strength to your bones.

    Pan-trib, lol. Well I suppose I shouldn't worry too much about it but just wanted to see what scripture says specifically. Perhaps I should do some in depth study even though Revelations can confuse the heck out of me sometimes.

    Through all human history, groups have gone through tribulations. While there is a predicted Big One, we can't really say anyone will avoid or endure. It seems heartless to tell people we won't endure it, when some people are currently undergoing persecution and death threats. And our news currently shows a growth in unreasonable violent groups.

    Countries are continually under threats and risks, both political and natural. Corruption seeps in wherever it can find a crack. That is our world. People work continually to patch the vulnerabilities, but are never completely safe from intrusion or attack.

    Along with what's said above, many people have had dreams about flooding or attacks on the east coast of the US. I had some very sobering ones several years ago, and since then have found hundreds of similar ones.

    Flooding can sometimes show the feeling of being submerged economically, or overtaken politically; water sometimes represents society, or commerce...human activity. Dreams are very symbolic because our brain does so many associations. This seems like this.

    Red is often an alert color, and you noticed it at the shore near your house, so it could alert you to pay attention to how groups or social influence is not as safe as you'd expect. The positions of things are usually significant -- you near the edge of the water/public/wave of what's happening.

    I put a lot of stock in dreams. Sometimes they are stress-based, or our minds organizing thoughts; but also God delivers hints when we are quieted and not arguing back or too busy to listen.

    Speaking of red, I just watched a video regarding the tetrad (4 blood moons this year and next). The author of the book was describing how significant events relating to the nation of Israel occur during these moons. What are your thoughts on the blood moons?

    It's certainly an interesting pattern. October 8th is the next one.
    Did you sense that might relate to your dream?

    http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-TWO1gGyHu...ABfI/nAUC4o5fKXo/s1600/Vega_Lunar-Tetrads.jpg -- a few odd spellings, but a thorough chart.


    Aside from any patterns the Lord might allow or instigate, I have heard of conniving groups that use symbolic dates to plan and notify people of upcoming catastrophes. So there can be a mix of supernatural and human causes, and maybe even physical (you know how people overreact during full moons.)

    Some people are focusing now on "know the signs and seasons" -- realizing that we really do have some schedules spelled out for us, if we pay attention to the Jewish calendar of months, festivals and Sabbaths.

    We always need to be on guard, and live responsibly, encourage ethics, and be ready for whatever God puts in front of us. (Because we do not know the hour, even if we suspect the month.)

    People are destroyed for lack of knowledge (Hos. 4), so it pays to try to find out where God is leading us each day and year, and to pray over potential risks.

    There is also the concept of natural cycles of behavior and opinion -- if an oppressive king were overthrown, a more democratic system would rise up in his place. Then as people find chaos needs to be controlled, they increase regulations and government begins to get oppressive again. Pendulum swings.

    I never really connected my dream with the blood moons until you mentioned it. I just saw the video last night regarding the moons and had my dream about 5 nights ago. Who knows? The whole idea of the blood moons coinciding with Jewish festivals does interest me however which is why I'm curious. I understand we don't know the time or the hour so anytime anyone says they do know the exact date I tend to stay away from those individuals.

    This morning's news showed an arrest made in the US, of an ISIS member who also recruited and helped transport recruits. He was a store owner, who'd bought assault weapons, so he had a visible presence in the community. He had planned to take out people in the US who had fought in Iraq.

    That is how I see your red alert at the shore. Influence that has come so close that it is at the edge between public and private.

    A dream vehicle usually relates to control and how you're moving forward with ventures. In a bus, we accept the leadership temporarily and let it take us where it had planned to go-- like a church or employer. You wanted to find out information from the leadership but they didn't know, or at least didn't tell you.

    (People sometimes say they know phones mean prayer in their dreams.)

    So you might want to think about how the organizations in your life carry you through potential troubles.

    Tying in with the blood moons, maybe we should consider how another major event could be scheduled around late September / early October.

    Thanks for the insight. It's interesting that you mentioned organizations because i'm actually at a cross roads with my church. I didnt even think twice that my dream had anything to do with my personal issues but rather just about the end times. I'm a little confused about the part about the bus when you mentioned that i wanted to find out information from the leadership but they didnt know or told me. Also if you dont mind expounding on the phone part as well i would be grateful. Im actually at a church right now where im kind of confused where we're headed and disappointed on how issues have been dealt with thus far. Im not growing but i dont want to make that an excuse for leaving. In my eyes it would be selfish to leave because of that so what should i do?

    I am wondering if the tsunami could refer to a tsunami of the Holy Spirit that is a part of the events that I write about in the first five posts in this prayer request discussion:

    http://www.christianforums.com/t7843155/

    Please pray for an American couple who are being used to prepare for major event.

    This article may be helpful.

    I believe that we are far more Laodicean in attitude than we tend to realize and Messiah Yeshua - Jesus is waking us up.
