I was tempted to go back to sleep, since I had gotten less than three hours of sleep. I figured that if it was the Lord waking me up, and I went back to sleep, He could awaken me again. But when I closed my eyes, I felt wide-awake. I saw no use in laying there for an extended period, trying to go back to sleep, especially when the Holy Spirit may have something urgent for me to pray about. Going back to sleep would only grieve the Spirit.
I got up and went into my office to pray. I knelt down and began to pray in the spirit. From the moment I got out of bed, I kept thinking that the Lord must have something important He needs me to pray about, which is urgent. As I began to pray, the presence of the Lord came all over me and remained for a few wonderful moments. I was so grateful for His holy presence. I thanked the Lord. His presence seemed to me worth more than anything in the whole world. I felt so blessed, as if I would be thankful forever for that one precious moment with the Father.
Once I finished writing the above account right where I was kneeling, and as soon as I returned to prayer, His presence returned once again. Then I asked, “Is this the day you’re coming back for us?”
Sandra Sadiq's Dream
Later in the day today, when one of my appointments to meet with some men for discipleship got rescheduled, I felt led to do a search on the website of Choo Thomas, regarding the word the Lord gave her about the start of the tribulation. I happened to read the following testimony by Sandra Sadiq about a dream she had in August 2006:
"Praise the Lord, He has been so good to me. I thank the Lord so much for giving me these Revelations because I never knew anything about the end times not even a word about the Rapture (Caught up) but it was prophesied to me 26 December 2007 that in the coming year starting 2008 that God was going to give me a lot of serious revelations of His Word, serious discoveries and etc. Now I can’t stop sharing some of the things God has given me. My name is Sandra Sadiq."

My Daughter's Dream
"This dream was so real to me, that I could practically say it wasn't a dream at all. It was very, very real. And it repeated itself once again afterward."
Comparing the Three Dreams
Let's use this chart below to compare the three dreams of Sandra Sadiq, myself, and my daughter Charity:
Sandra Sadiq's Dream
My Daughter Charity's Dream
|4:44 AM||Between 4:00 and 5:00 AM||Night time|
|I was dreaming that I was lying in bed sleeping in the Army barracks.||She was laying in bed sleeping in the Army barracks.||It was past her bedtime.|
|The Lord woke me up to pray AFTER I had the dream.||The Lord woke her up to pray BEFORE she had the dream.||She was still awake.|
|I closed my eyes and tried to go back to sleep, but I was wide awake, so I got up to pray.||After praying, she went back to sleep, because she was so tired; and 45 minutes later she had the dream.|
|In my dream, I wanted to sleep in peace, and did not want to be awakened abruptly, like they would wake us in an Army alert. But my fellow soldiers wanted me to get up.||In her dream, she heard a loud sound, as in an Army alert, which the Lord later revealed to her was his trumpets from heaven.||The ground started shaking, she heard a rumbling sound like an earthquake, and felt the ground trembling beneath her feet.|
|When the Lord woke me up to pray, He startled me. My heart was pounding, and I sensed it was something urgent.||When the Lord woke her up from her sleep, she sensed it was an emergency.||Her heart started beating really fast with excitement.|
|I sensed the Lord's presence and asked Him if this was the day that He was "coming back" for us.||It is understood that the trumpets she heard from heaven were announcing that the Lord was coming back.||She turned her head and cried out, 'Daddy, Jesus is coming back!'"|
|The dream was so real that she jumped out of bed running, got dressed, and ran out into the street, surprised to see that nobody else was in the street, and nobody else heard the loud trumpet she heard.||The dream was so real to her that she could practically say it wasn't a dream at all. It was very, very real.|
|My dream was confirmed on the same day by Sandra's and Charity's dreams, which confirmed it was from the Lord and emphasized its urgency.||The dream repeated itself once again, which emphasized it was urgent and from the Lord.|
Seven and a half years after I published this article, I did some research and learned that numerous other people have gotten the number 444 from the Lord in connection with the rapture, and they feel the meaning of the number 444 is rapture. For example, here are a couple such videos:
Finally the meaning of 444! Rapture!!
4:44 Jesus is coming! 444 meaning
On December 22, 2019, after reading this article of mine from 2012 to my family at bedtime devotions, we then watched the first of the three videos linked above. Then we prayed. My youngest son, who is ten years old, said that as he began to pray, he happened to look over at my book of John Wesley's journal on the shelf beside him and saw the label on the book said "444", which I checked and confirmed. Neither of us had ever noticed that before, so it seemed like a confirmation.
Putting it All Together
All I can say is the Lord is speaking to many people about this and it is not just coincidence. I had never read of Sandra's dream before. And I just happened to find it on the same day that the Lord gave me the same kind of dream. Both I and Sandra Sadiq were awakened between 4 and 5 AM. Both of us were tempted to go back to sleep instead of praying. Both our dreams were in a military setting, sleeping during the night, then receiving an alert, requiring an immediate wake up and readiness on the part of the soldier. Amazingly, it seems the Lord may actually conduct these kinds of drills with us to alert us in advance to be ready for the rapture. And then to know that on the same day, my daughter had a dream that the rapture happened, I think the Lord is clearly speaking through this.
Remember that I was awakened at 4:44 and consider that the following verse, which ends in 4:44 is about the Lord's coming:
"For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will. (Mat 24:44)
("Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame.") (Rev 16:15)
'Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God. 'So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent. Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you. (Rev 3:2-3)
I want you to be ready, my friend. Most of the Church is asleep right now. The Lord is giving a wake up call, and many simply want to turn over and go back to sleep. I urge you not to go back to sleep. For this reason it says, "Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine on you." (Eph 5:14)
We are in the last moment right before the rapture. Time's up! I want to be very clear that I am not setting any dates. I don't know if it is going to be this week, this year, next year, or when. It just depends on the grace of God. But it's going to be VERY soon.
The only way to be ready is to give your life to Jesus and then live for Him 100% with sincere and pure devotion. Look to Jesus, who alone can prepare you to enjoy the rapture, and join the worshipers in heaven. You must forsake the world, the flesh, and the devil, and live a life consecrated to Jesus. If you are a Christian that is not living a life of pure devotion to Jesus, please REPENT and get your life right with God now.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus. Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?
“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15). He preached that we must repent and believe.
Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
