(First posted on 1-31-13, Vision of a Departing Train in ‘PROPHETIC VISIONS’ on Tab Bar)
This vision was shared during lunch at the Star Plaza Hotel while I was on a mission trip to Dagupan City, Philippines in 2001.
I saw a large train and people were boarding it. It was departure time. I heard the conductor call out in a loud voice, “ALL ABOARD!”
I believe this vision is related to the soon coming of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Rapture as stated in 1Th4:16, ‘For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God..’.
The following week we were in Baguio City and I told the pastor of a church we were visiting about this vision. He, too, had a similar vision about a train.
He saw a train on fire as it went up into the sky and he recognized the faces of some of his own church members who were in the train. He said that it was like when Elijah was taken up to heaven in a chariot of fire, ‘fire’ meaning Holy Ghost fire. We both were impressed by the Holy Spirit that the visions were confirmation that Jesus is returning soon.
A few months later that same year, we went to Shanghai, China, a vast city of 25 million people and I had an unforgettable and frightening experience. We had been on trains to different cities before, but on this one occasion I went with a young cousin to spend the day at a park somewhere. I remembered the crush of the crowd when we boarded the train to return back to Shanghai city proper and having to get off some stops afterwards because we were LOST! My cousin panicked when she realized we were on the wrong train and not going in the direction of home! Not being familiar with the names of the train stops, we got off the train and took one that would take us back to where we first boarded the train. Then, luckily she knew where she lived and we caught the taxi back to her home! What is to learn about this harrowing experience and how it is tied into my vision in the Philippines is this:
We need to know where we’re going and how to get there. But we also need the right ticket in our hand and need to be ready at the right place when the train pulls up. The return of Jesus Christ could be at any time. It will be like the train coming up the tracks and hearing the train conductor call out, “All Aboard!” Jesus has been calling all this time, but soon it will be the last and final call of ”All Aboard!”. If you’re ready and waiting, you’ll be transported to your heavenly destination. If not, you’ll be LEFT BEHIND!
