A few months ago I had a dream in which in was sitting in a church auditorium and watched as children and some adults were ascending stairways on each side of the church. I realized that the rapture (catching away of the church) was happening and I was not going. I was left with some other people. I was troubled, I said, “Lord, I’m counting on your blood to save me. I have no other way.”
When I awoke, I meditated on the meaning of the dream, because I was/am convinced that I am saved by the blood of Jesus and that I will go with him when he calls. I believe I know the reason for the dream. I have always been a “do something” kind of person; I have a reputation for “doing” good deeds (My reputation is better than the real “me.”) I believe the dream was a test to see if I really counted on Jesus or did I count on my good deeds. I am so thankful that even in that test, I just humbly bowed to my dependence on Jesus. No good that I have done can save me. Only Jesus. ***************
The following is an excerpt from a page on my menu, Jehovah-tsidkenu, Our Righteousness.
“Many modern American Christians have a concept of righteousness that portrays positive traits such as honesty, virtuousness, behaving well, and avoiding evil and temptations of the flesh. Among some Christians that can be summed up in the statement “We don’t drink, smoke, or chew, and we don’t run around with those who do.” That philosophy will lead to better health and good living, but it falls short of being the righteousness of God.
Neither good deeds nor sacrifice will make one righteous. Thus, the need for Jehovah-tsidkenu – THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS! No other will do.
