JESUS RETURNS... The Sapphire Cloud

There had been a devastating tornado that day. There had been many distressing tornadoes and storms bombarding us day after day. 🔥There had been a devastating tornado that day. There had been many distressing tornadoes and storms bombarding us day after day.

Late afternoon approached on this particular day. I was in my house with several others. We were recovering from that day’s tornado when suddenly something frightful caused us to look out the window.

I saw an awesome sight in the sky. A massive and colossal sight that could not be compared to any prior storm since the world began. My heart sank in great dread.

I looked and saw a massive, extraordinary thunderstorm cloud shrouded in dark sapphire coming quickly toward Earth from very far away. It was too big to even fit in our tiny atmosphere...

The Great Storm Cloud was outlined in a deep dark sapphire blue. The bottom of the Cloud was a foreboding darkness more dreadful than the worst of thunderstorms. All I could see was the front and the bottom of the cloud (not the top... yet).

There was an enormous, brilliant bolt of continuous LIGHTNING discharging with frightening power from the top left of the cloud down to the bottom right of the cloud. The lightning never ceased in blazing brightly, flashing terribly within itself.

It was a breath-taking spectacle, more spectacular than any lightning that exists on Earth or in our imagination. Just the sight of the lightning itself was enough to stop the hearts of men. Fear of great catastrophe fell upon us all.

It was a sight never seen before and it was approaching quickly. I was filled with apprehension as this terrible cloud exuded a power so mighty it could destroy creation itself, yet I was so captivated by it and so intensely fixated on it, I couldn’t stop staring at it, betraying my natural inclinations to run and hide.

I was some how draw to it, yet experiencing extreme dread over this terrible, wonderful, unearthly phenomenon. The very words of my heart were, “Oh no……. what is coming upon us now!!?” We had already endured so much. Now what? And this is worse than all.


Then, as I continued to watch the Great Cloud move through the massive sky toward us, I was suddenly able to see the top of the Cloud where previously I could not see it.

I was astonished, because I saw that on top of the Cloud there were unspeakable wonders of beauty, glory and colors. Such beautiful glory and in the midst of these beautiful things I saw a large throne chair and there was One who sat on it and He was like a Son of Man clothed in white Light. His robe was white light. His face was white light. He came riding on that Cloud!

I did not recognize Him until someone behind me shouted, “IT’S JESUS!!” At that moment everything in my life prior to those two words utterly vanished.

The dread I had been feeling fled as darkness flees the light. Joy and love welled up inside of me. Deep love filled my heart. The sound of His name filled my spirit with inexpressible emotion and joy. The end had come and my heart was filled with unspeakable joy.


I ran outside! Now the awesome sight was larger in the sky as it continued to come nearer. I looked at the mighty throne and the One who sat on it and I knew it was Jesus. I recognized Him, because I belonged to Him.

I was running toward Christ’s throne as fast as I could move, not giving anything on Earth a second thought. My arms were suddenly flung out involuntarily, stretched toward my dear, precious Savior as I ran to Him.

His glorious name was a loving cry upon my lips, “JESUS! JESUS! JESUS!” Over and over again I cried out to my Love. I was running to meet Him and I wasn’t alone. There were thousands all around me running toward the great cloud, all of them with their arms outstretched toward Him like mine; all crying out His holy name, “JESUS! JESUS! JESUS!”

I realized that I wasn’t ashamed to face Him. My deep love for Him was all I knew. I knew He loved me. Even from such a great distance love was pouring forth from His bright countenance like sunlight as He sat enthroned on the great cloud surrounded by glory and honor.

I knew at any moment I would be face to face with Him. I knew the end had come. I had absolutely NO idea I was in a dream.


I saw the Cloud and Christ clearly as I ran. It was a terrible, wonderful cloud. The beauty of His glory was wonderful, but the storm He rode upon was dreadful and struck the fear of God in all who laid eyes upon it.

Everything that moved with Jesus was His throne. The transparent throne-chair was His throne. The cloud was His throne. All things that moved with the cloud were His throne. There was life in the lightening as if it were a living thing and perhaps it was. There was life in the cloud as if it were living.

The cloud moved where ever the Lord wanted it to go. Great unspeakable glory shone from Him in every direction. Jesus Christ shone with glory and power and honor and majesty brighter than the sun can beam with light.

All the things and beings that surrounded Him were completely transparent and the beauty and glory and honor that emanated from Jesus shone through them brightly.

I saw colors that do not exist on earth. Pastel colors surrounded Him on every side like rainbows, sunsets and dawn in its greatest glory.

There were living beings that surrounded Him and the throne all around Him, even over His head. They were completely transparent and only shone with the light and glory that came from Jesus. I do not know who or what these living beings were. Angels? Saints? Heavenly creatures? I don't know.

Behind the great throne chair where Christ sat was a kingdom. I saw castle tops and the tops of the amazing structures. This kingdom followed behind Him and was on the Cloud behind the throne. One great Rainbow arched over all that was on the Cloud including Jesus.

I knew Jesus had returned. There is a certain, impossible-to-describe-feeling that accompanies the return of Jesus Christ. No human knows it unless they have experienced it through revelation of the Holy Spirit. It is a supremely wonderful feeling.


As I ran toward that cloud, continuously screaming out His name in desperate anticipation of being with Him... of getting on that cloud with Him... experiencing deep love and longing for Him, suddenly, I was propelled through the sky toward Him, toward that cloud, toward His mighty throne!

It was suddenly NO longer my choice to run toward Him, because now He was choosing me forever and He snatched me away from earth with forceful love.

Call it what you will: "rapture", "Return"... whatever. What mortals name it doesn't matter. The bible says He's returning for us, and that's what He is coming to do. As a Bridegroom desperate for His Bride, He came and snatched us to Himself. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my entire LIFE and it changed me forever.

I was being brought to Jesus Christ and His throne with forceful power by His will and not by mine. I felt an awesome power electrifying my body and spirit as I was moving through the atmosphere; a surging power like a mighty wind piercing through me in a mighty good way. I felt myself being changed.

I was moving at a speed unthinkable, faster than the speed of light, toward the throne of Jesus. A speed so fast it was like I was not moving at all, and yet the force and pressure of moving at such a great speed was upon my body. The force bent my body backwards and my arms and legs bent back unable to move. I saw around me the stars of the universe like blurry streaks of light, because of the speed I was going by the strength and will of God alone. I myself could not move.

Jesus chose me. He was taking me unto Himself to His mighty throne. I had waited for Him. I knew exactly what was happening. I could think very clearly and I knew what was taking place. I had no idea it was only a dream, though.

I knew my fight was finally over. I knew that I had finished my race. I knew that I had chosen Jesus all my life and never denied His name and now I would receive my eternal reward. I knew I would never be tempted to sin again. I knew I would never have to suffer darkness of evil, satan and the temptations of the world again. Earth was now a marble of rotten evil behind me and I would never have to go back. I did not look back. I didn't want to... ever.

It was filled with exceedingly great joy. Just as I was about to enter through the gates, I started screaming thanksgiving to God, like my whole soul was exploding with gratitude, “THANK YOU, JESUS!! THANK YOU, JESUS!! THANK YOU, JESUS!!” …

... then I suddenly woke up strangely abruptly. When I woke up I was sitting up, not laying down. Needless to say I was incredibly disappointed to find myself back on the rotten marble of evil that I was never supposed to see again.

But when the disappointment eased I was filled with the Holy Spirit of God Almighty and with outpouring thankfulness that He had not only showed me His return, but allowed me to experience it.

This experience is a testimony for the entire body of Christ, for encouragement, for edification, for the strengthening of your hope. That day is coming. Look to the skies, for your redemption draws near.

This dream is about God's deliverance as well. How He delivers us NOW (Psalm 18) and how He will deliver us from this world when He returns. He comes to us in extravagant glory and exceedingly great power.


The Lord is my Rock and my Fortress and my Deliverer; My God, my Strength, in whom I will trust. My Shield and the Horn of my Salvation, my Stronghold. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies. The pangs of death surrounded me, And the floods of ungodliness made me afraid. The sorrows of Sheol surrounded me; The snares of death confronted me. In my distress I called upon the Lord, And cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, And my cry came before Him, even to His ears. Then the earth shook and trembled; The foundations of the hills also quaked and were shaken, Because He was angry. Smoke went up from His nostrils, And devouring fire from His mouth; Coals were kindled by it. He bowed the heavens also, and came down With darkness under His feet. And He rode upon a cherub, and flew; He flew upon the wings of the wind. He made darkness His secret place; His canopy around Him was dark waters And thick clouds of the skies. From the brightness before Him, His thick clouds passed with hailstones and coals of fire. The Lord thundered from heaven, And the Most High uttered His voice, hailstones and coals of fire. He sent out His arrows and scattered the foe, lightnings in abundance, and He vanquished them. Then the channels of the sea were seen. The foundations of the world were uncovered at Your rebuke, O Lord, at the blast of the breath of Your nostrils. He sent from above, He took me; He drew me out of many waters. He delivered me from my strong enemy, from those who hated me, for they were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the Lord was my support. He also brought me out into a broad place; He delivered me because He delighted in me. The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands He has recompensed me. For I have kept the ways of the Lord, and have not wickedly departed from my God. For all His judgments were before me, and I did not put away His statutes from me. I was also blameless before Him, and I kept myself from my iniquity. Therefore the Lord has recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in His sight. With the merciful You will show Yourself merciful; with a blameless man You will show Yourself blameless. With the pure You will show Yourself pure; and with the devious You will show Yourself shrewd. For You will save the humble people, but will bring down haughty looks.
