"Welcome to Israel!"


#1

Last night when I was in my cozy little bed trying to fall asleep, I heard this faint voice saying, “Welcome to Israel!” :confused: What on earth is this and why did I hear it? I WASN’T imagining it and was not dreaming!

And no, I’m not phyco either! LOL!!!

I had a dream recently in which I was going up a spiral staircase. Ahead of me was a shadow figure. Suddenly I would stop and say “Satan! Be Gone!!” I said that about three of four times. Then it was gone, or I woke up. I wasn’t scared in the dream, a little afraid, but not scared.

Yeah, but this wasn’t a dream. I suddenly sat up in bed and thought about it. This is a mystery!

This wasn’t a dream though! I sat up when I heard it, wondering about it!

That was the Holy Spirit, Paris! What a blessing! Not many are blessed with the gift to hear the Holy Sprit audibly! It is confirmation that you have found the way, and the truth and the life in the Holy Catholic Church. I am so happy for you! :slight_smile:

I was laying down listening to Interpol one night…and I got this really sickening feeling in the pit of my stomach…I looked down across my chest and the room was disappearing into blackness…Interpol was no longer playing, but instead a horrifyingly loud sound was reverberating throughout my mind…it sounded like a semitruck’s squealing brake’s except it was much more loud…almost painfully loud. I was being pulled off the bed into the blackness and I couldn’t breathe…and the noise…the awful noise… I woke up on the bed and I was crying. There were tears streaming down my face…

All I thought was… wow. Interpol is one seriously good band…
and I haven’t much thought about it since. When I do think about it…I get a funny feeling and I smile.

The Catholic Church is the new Israel. :slight_smile:

This is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel
after those days, says the Lord:
I will put my laws into their minds,
and write them on their hearts,
and I will be their God,
and they shall be my people.
Hebrews 8:10

That was my humble opinion, Paris. But since I am not a Bishop, Priest or Deacon, and I did not hear the voice and don’t the feelings associated with your experience, I recommend that you present this to the Priest who resides at the parish where you attend RCIA. God Bless you!
