The Obsequious Ones

Dream by Sandra League on December 31, 2002

In my dream I was lying on my bed with my head at the foot of the bed on the side closest to the door. The door was open. My husband was lying next to me, but he was asleep. I opened my eyes. The Lord was kneeling at my bedside to my left. His head slightly bowed. He was dressed in a blue robe, and He wore something white underneath. His head was covered with a turban that was attached to the robe. The material appeared to be terry cloth. His complexion was dark, and His expression was serious. When I looked at Him he began to tell me that a time of testing was coming upon the earth. He told me that the obsequious ones would escape or be preserved and those who were not would not. I asked Him to confirm what He had just told me. He asked me how I wanted Him to confirm it. I then told Him, “By two kisses.” He walked away from me to where He was out of sight, and as I lay there I felt two light impressions just to the left of my mouth and I reached up to touch that spot. I also recall at that moment becoming aware of the ease that I felt with Him. He came back and stood over my bed looking down at me but saying nothing. I awoke with my hand on the place where He kissed me.

Afterwards, I was going about my daily business and periodically I would feel the kisses as a reminder, and when I did I would reach up to touch the place where He had kissed me. I thought that I needed to tell someone, but I couldn’t tell just anyone. I decided I needed to tell Mike Walsh because he would understand. After deciding that, I felt the two kisses again.
