A Vision of Walking Through a Narrow Gate
I was in a dream in the morning of Nov 18 2013, I was walking on a street in a sunny day. When I reached the end of the street channeled by walls on two sides, I saw a very narrow slot like a thick line on the wall at the end. While I was approaching it, I saw that the width of the slot was about my palm width. Immediately, I was saying in my heart , how can any one pass through that slot at all? The
Without any further thought, I started to side myself into that straight narrow opening. While I was passing it, I thought that even my hand could go through, by no means that my head and chest will pass it. However, I passed it without any difficulty. I looked back through the slot, I saw a young girl was approaching it too. after her, there was someone in a distance to come too. But apparently, the number was very few who were on the same path.
Just as I was about to go forward to see what lies ahead on this side, I heard a familiar female voice asking for a direction to her denomination, an old memory flash backed in to my mind and I told her where her congregation was and she went. Then I turned away from the entrance and walked straight forward. First, I saw a large group of elderly people who were worshiping and praying under a roof in a structure without walls. I did not want to go there and kept walking. I saw a unspeakable beautiful picture with brilliant rays around in a near distance on my left hand side. I walked fast to approach the scene to learn what it was. I thought it was a paint or a large picture hanging in the sky. However, when I approached it, I found out that it was a real and live place. The brilliant shining spots were the reflection of the sunlight from a very tall waterfall, running down from a hill top reaching to the cloud. The water falls on the rocks and creates a smooth and continuous water stream, which scatters and reflects the noon day sun light. It was so crystal clear and radiant. I looked down the hill as I was stood on the opposite of that water fall, I saw there were running waters falling down from my side as well. the valley was very deep and I could not see the bottom. There were many never seen fish in beauty living around the ponds and waters on my hill side. The rocks appeared slippy and smooth. I could not help myself to walk down to check out those beautiful fish. When I reached to a flat area on the rocky hill, I found some very colorful fish was swimming in the water. I dipped my hand to touch it and it did not run away. Inside of my heart, a voice told me to eat it. But when I looked at it, I could not tell myself to do anything to harm it. I released it and stood up. just then, I found some other sea anemones stuck on the edge of my left palm. They must moved on to my hand while I was leaning on it to catch the fish. I brushed them off by my right hand. I woke up.
For those who read the Bible, would know immediately that Jesus Christ taught the narrow gate that leads to the kingdom of heaven. This vision, if I understood it correctly, indicates that the Lord has led me and others on this journey and showed me that some of us including me had found the narrow gate and continue on the path to heaven. My heart was filled with joy after I woke up. It was a beautiful vision or dream. If the real kingdom of heaven is so beautiful and live, I must try my best to enter such a heavenly place. The beauty, the peace, the purity, the brightness, the cleanness, and the wonderful creatures (fish) were all satisfying to my soul. For this G-d, how could I not serve with all my heart, my strength, and my mind?
Praise the Lord Jesus Christ and the Father G-d in heaven. May your Holy Spirit continue to work in me to bring me close to you more and more.
Amen forever more.
