God says in the last days He will pour out His Spirit on all flesh and the old men will dream dreams (see Joel 2:28).
That was talking about me. It seems like only yesterday I was a young Jewish man of 30. I had just experienced the worst year of my life in which I had a horrifying encounter with Satan. Then I had a life-changing encounter with Jesus. I have never looked back, and now I burn with a passion and compassion for the lost.
I have had dreams from God that have made an impact on the world. In 1995, God instructed me in a dream to write a book of Jewish testimonies. He said more Jewish people would come to know Him through this book than anything I had ever done. He was right. We have distributed more than 2.6 million of these books primarily to Jewish families in the United States, the former Soviet Union and Israel. The testimonies of Jewish people coming to faith through this book are off the charts! To God be all the glory!
The Dream that Rocked Sid’s World
In 2013, I had another dream that rocked my world. Before the dream, if you had asked me if Jesus was coming in my lifetime I would have said yes, but deep in my heart I would not have been sure.
Now all that has changed. I was not even thinking of the Lord’s return when I had a vivid dream. God spoke to me three times and said, “I am coming back soon! I am coming back soon! I am coming back soon!”
Why would God tell me this? And, what does “soon” mean? In the Merriam-Webster dictionary, soon means: “in a short time after something happens.” In this age of proliferation of nuclear arms, the world is on the verge of “something happening.”
Jesus said about His return, “But know this, that if the owner of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for in an hour when you least expect, the Son of Man is coming” (Matt. 24:43-44).
How does Jesus warn us to be ready? He tells us to “watch.” According to Vine’s Expository Dictionary, the Greek word means to watch with vigilance and expectancy. I believe this prophetic guide will help you watch with vigilance and expectancy.
