(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!”
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.
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!
The last words of Jesus Christ in the book of Revelation 22:10-21:
“And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book:
for the Time Is At Hand.
He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still:
and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still:
And he that is holy, let him be holy still.
And, behold, I come quickly: and my reward is with me,
to give every man according as his work shall be.
I am Alpha and Omega,
the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
Blessed are they that do his commandments,
that they may have right to the tree of life,
and may enter in through the gates into the city.
For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers,
and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches.
I am the root and offspring of David, and the bright and morning star:
And the Spirit and the bride say,
Come. And let him that heareth say, Come.
And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will,
let him take the water of life freely.
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book,
If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy,
God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city,
and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith,
SURELY I COME QUICKLY.
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
These are the initial words of Jesus Christ from the first chapter of Revelation 1:1-3
things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto
his servant John:
Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy,
and keep those things which are written therein:
for the time is at hand.“
