DREAM OF THE FUTURE
Sarah Winston suddenly awoke from a strange dream. She
couldn't quite remember what it was about but she was certain
it was a foreboding sign of the future. She didn't like to
have these dreams because people would think she was tetched.
It was lucky for her that this wasn't one hundred years
earlier . . . they would have burned her at the stake as a
She lay there in the dark trying to remember what it was
about. It was no use . . . it just wouldn't come to her.
She fell back asleep and the dream occurred again. Right
from the beginning and exactly as the first time. When she
awoke this time, she was perspiring all over. It was a dream
of the future and it concerned a bad and long war. Her
brother has been in it and she knew if it happened, her
brother would lose his life. She was shaking all over!
Dawn was breaking so she got up and threw some cold
water in her face to wake herself. She then got dressed and
went downstairs to help her mother make breakfast. She
grabbed the bucket and walked out to the well to pump some
water. The cool air was refreshing.
When she returned to the kitchen, she thought it might
help her if she talked to her mother about the dream.
"Mama, I had a strange and scary dream last night. In
fact, I couldn't remember what it was the first time so I
fell back to sleep. Then it started all over again and when
I woke up, I remembered the whole thing."
"Why Sarah, you're shaking like a leaf! Was it that
bad? Tell me about it."
"War, Mama. Bad, horrible war. It was all around us
and our house was even burned to the ground. They were
British soldiers that we were fighting. It was the British
who burned our house down. They locked Father up because he
joined the cause of the colonists. Brother John was in the
war. He was wounded and didn't pull through, Mama!" she
Her mother put her arms around Sarah and comforted her.
"Come child, calm yourself. Your father and brother will be
up shortly and want their breakfast. Help me get it ready
and after they go out to work in the field, we can talk some
"Yes, Mama." Sarah replied. As she busied herself with
the fire, she could feel the jitters quieting down. She must
put this out of her mind for now, she thought.
When they had finished eating breakfast, father said,
"Well, it's spring again. We have a lot of plowing to do
today John. It's hard to believe it's 1774 already. The
years really fly by when you get older."
"You're not getting old, Father." replied John. "You
can work harder than anyone in the area that are years
younger than you. I hope I have as much strength when I get
Sarah could feel the tears well up in her eyes and had
to turn and look out the window. Her mother walked over to
her as John and his father walked out to get the horses ready
for plowing. Sarah had all she could do to calm her nerves.
They cleaned up the breakfast dishes and both sat at the
table while Sarah related the dream.
"Actually, Mama, it was about war here but it was also
about two more wars which are coming. Each war was about 100
years after the previous one. If it's possible, each seemed
to be worse. And strangely, they were all on this continent.
There were other wars but my dream was about ones which had
to do with our survival.
"Try to remember everything Sarah. If we see things
coming to pass which you dreamed, maybe we can do something
to prepare ourselves.
"Yes, Mama. The first one where Father was put in jail
and John received a bad wound, seemed to be happening as if
it was today. It won't be too far in the future. The
trouble between the British and us will get worse. Fighting
will break out in the streets of Boston. A British general
will be responsible for killing many colonists. Some will be
in Lexington and others will be in Concord. Many homes were
burned to the ground. They didn't burn ours in the begin-
ning. As British soldiers look for people who they think are
guilty of treason to the King, they throw many men in jail
and burn their homes to the ground. Ours is one of them.
"Finally the colonists will meet in a conference and
declare our independence from King George. The war will be
long and hard. As I said, John fought for our freedom. He
did not survive his wounds. It was horrible Mama! The only
good thing was the outcome, Mama. We finally win the war
Sarah and her mother knew that troubles were brewing in
the colonies. Parliament had been busy passing laws which
were intolerable to the people of the colonies. Local
governments had been sending petitions to King George only to
have them ignored. The colonists had become very irritated.
We felt it here on the farm with all the taxes they levied on
our farm implements, cloth and even our tea. Taxation
without representation was a rallying point for all the
"What else did you dream, Sarah?"
"The next war seemed to be about 100 years from now
Mama. It was bad because brothers were fighting brothers in
many places in our land. The war was between the northern
and the southern colonies. Only they weren't called
colonies, they were states.
"May our Lord preserve us, child."
"There was much deceit and deception in this war. The
people are lead to believe it was a war over slaves but
slavery was not even involved. It was a case of sinister
people who wanted to overthrow our form of government and
control the people. These evil men were high officials in
foreign banking circles. They wanted all laws passed which
would do away with our freedoms.
"Our leader, and I don't remember his name, wanted to
preserve our form of government. The people who worked for
him continuously gave him bad advice. They were controlled
by these evil men. The first attack was by the forces of the
northern states and was unnecessary. The people of the south
were only trying to make the government respect their rights
which was guaranteed by a government compact.
"Since the government wouldn't obey that charter, the
southern states withdrew and formed a separate government.
This is the one thing these immoral men didn't want and they
used all the evil at their disposal to incite war. It was
really bad, Mama. A large city in the south was even looted
and burned to the ground by a general after the war had
"The south finally surrendered and our leader wanted to
bring these states back into the union. These wicked men had
other ideas. They couldn't convince our leader to punish the
southern states so they finally had the leader murdered.
They made certain that no one could accuse them in the
killing. They then had their way and really broke the spirit
of the southern people. They took land from the landowners
and gave it to the slaves. They had slaves elected to
government. These men got the slaves to pass all kinds of
laws to heap more injustices on the white people. Why do
people do these things Mama? This is not what we learn in
our bible study. This is not what our Lord teaches!
"Sarah, honey, we both know there are forces of Satan at
work all the time. These people have become inflicted with a
sickness. They are greedy and power mad. All they want is
power and control over people. We see that from history. It
makes them feel important. It's just mans' inhumanity
toward his fellow man. It's terrible. But our Lord is no
fool. He knows what is going on all the time. I feel
certain he allows this to happen for people to learn a
lesson. And after people learn the lesson, the ones who are
good will muster their strength and fight to restore his
"One thing I remember very strongly, Mama, was that the
second and third wars which are coming do not have to occur.
If people would remember divine teachings and practice them
in their daily lives, these wars will not happen. The one
which is coming in our time will happen because the King will
not want to give up the colonies. The oppression by him has
been too violent and lasted too long. Our people will be
free from Great Britain. The future of our country is to be
a leader in the world.
Mama sat there pondering the words of her daughter. She
finally said, "Sarah, you must write these dreams down and
pass them on to your children. Perhaps, as you say, if these
future wars do not have to happen, your future grandchildren
will have the wisdom to do what is necessary to prevent the
"Mama, these kind of dreams scare me. I don't really
want to know what is going to happen in the future. Maybe
I'm getting a bit daft.
"Honey, don't fret yourself over this. Our Lord works
in mysterious ways. This is probably his way to prepare us
for bad times and that he is calling John back home." She
could feel a lump in her throat and tears filled her eyes.
Why did men have to act that way toward each other, she
thought? Man has no right to take the life of another!
Doesn't the Bible say "Thou shalt not kill"? Are they just
empty words now?
"What did you see after this second war, Sarah honey?"
"The one main thing I felt about the third war Mama was
that it was really unnecessary. People had become so lax and
didn't watch what the government was doing that the oppres-
sion was worse than we have it today. The people were not
really to blame either. The sinister men behind the
government became very good at deceiving and controlling the
people. They continually issued papers which would keep the
people worried about something so they wouldn't see what was
happening. There was always the threat of a war breaking out
somewhere in the world and the people became involved in
calling for peace. But they were fooled by these dark
forces. Chances of war breaking out somewhere in the world
were less than the chance of war here.
"The government controlled all the schools and told
these schools what they were to teach. They were turning out
zombies who could not read properly and could not even see
problems as they arose. Any that they did see, they didn't
know how to fight. That part was scary, Mama. If the
government is going to control what is being taught, how can
people think for themselves?
"It sounds more like the people are medieval serfs or
slaves in the future you saw."
"That's true, Mama. The people just didn't realize it.
They kept talking about their freedom and how the government
could not take that freedom away. They said they were free
to speak but were put in jail if they said anything the
government didn't agree with. I saw people gathering in
front of buildings only to be hit with clubs and thrown in
strange carriages. They had a system of taxes which was much
worse than we have today. People were put into jails, homes
and land were taken if the people didn't freely give their
money to the government. They instilled a fear in the people
but really they were stealing the money and spending it on
all kinds of programs which were not permitted.
"There was some really exciting things I saw. I did not
see any lamps or candles but there was light in every home
and building. They had really strange looking carriages but
there were no horses to pull them. They seemed to go by
themselves. There were so many strange looking boxes with
pictures which moved. There were huge birds, at least what
looked like birds. Only their wings were not flapping. They
seemed so high and moved so fast.
"It looked like a wonderful time to be alive. There
were so many conveniences which we can't even imagine. The
people again turned away from God and divine principles.
Everyone tried to out do each other in the number of
conveniences they owned. Stealing and robbery became a way
of life. Those that didn't have these fine things broke into
stores and homes and stole them. Many people were actually
going hungry. There was not enough work and it seemed that
foreign countries were flooding the markets with many miracle
"The government was again deceiving the people and when
the problems got really bad, people in government didn't know
how to handle them. The government followed the advice of
their invisible leaders and declared martial law. That was
when the people revolted and a really bad war broke out.
"Thousands and thousands of people died. The soldiers
were worried about their own families and also fought the
government. In some of the bigger towns, bodies were lying
all over the place and people couldn't bury them. As the war
went on, food became scarce and it made the war worse.
People were stealing and killing to get food for themselves
and children. Even young children were doing it. I really
can't describe the horrible scenes I saw Mama.
"You best sit down and write what you can remember,
child. It may help you feel better if you get it all down
and out of your mind. If you hear your father or John
coming, please put it away. No sense in worrying them too."
"Yes, Mama, I'll do that. It might help."
Was Sarah Winston really given a glimpse of our future?
Is she one of the prophets the Bible speaks about? How close
are we to what Sarah envisioned?
You have to admit that the government does control our
schools. All without permission in our Constitution. In the
past, schools were privately controlled and usually under the
sponsorship of a church. It has always been this way in our
country. Now we have robots being churned out who know
nothing about our history, government, geography. They know
little about mathematics and cannot understand what they are
Materialism is a fact of life today. Must keep up with
the Jones' family. Moral values are a thing of the past for
the most part. Stealing, murder, assault and robbery are
such a common occurrence that we are running out of jail
space in which to put criminals. People know nothing about
the operation of our government and even less if they pass
laws beyond the authority which we surrendered when we
ratified the Constitution. We witness religious leaders and
politicians making fools of themselves and we yawn.
We have an independent and privately owned company which
controls our money and people are unaware of it. Al Capone
taught our government that the best way to steal money is to
threaten to break arms, legs or blow up businesses. They
aren't that obvious about it but they have convinced all to
volunteer to pay the money after you assess yourself. And,
like Capone would do, if you don't assess yourself and pay
your voluntary sums, you are likely to have your home stolen
and sold at auction. If that isn't enough, they put you in
jail. People don't know our Constitution or what due process
means and it goes on and on.
People have forgotten God. Prayer in schools is now a
no no. Our 'leaders' have so declared! The practice and
teaching of religious and moral values has dwindled by an
alarming rate. Governments want neighbors to snitch on
others so they can solve crimes. Whose job is that? We see
signs proclaiming that people who call 'crime stop' phone
numbers are heroes. It's apparent we haven't learned from
history . . . history is repeating itself.
Leaders have declared that children will be bussed to
distant schools to "achieve racial balance." Neither side
of the dispute is happy with that but it goes on. We are a
nation of controlled and regimented slaves today yet everyone
says we are a free nation. Has anyone looked up the words
free or brave to see what they really mean? How about
looking up sovereign? You and I are the sovereign!
This is a nation "of the people, by the people and for
the people." We gave authority for our government when the
Constitution was ratified. It says all laws passed must
agree with the power we relinquished. If they are beyond
that authority, you don't have to obey the law. It's that
You and I are being taken for fools and the law allowing
the martial law which Sarah saw is already on the books. The
Dark Forces are in full control. Is the fulfillment of her
dream that close? Better wake up. Now is the time!
