"...there shall be left in it a remnant who will be brought out..." (Ezek. 14:22)


Dream of January 22, 1990. This dream portrays the remnant Church in America emerging unharmed from a catastrophic nuclear attack. God guides the remnant Church through the post nuclear attack aftermath and confirms His foretold destruction upon a once great nation, the Lady of Kingdoms (Isa. 47:5). The Interpretation, Interpretive Scriptures, and my Personal Testimony follow this dream.


It was nighttime, and totally dark. However, I was able to clearly distinguish what I saw. I stood in the midst of a vast scorched environment on the side of a road watching a multitude of people of various ages approaching from the left. These men and women wore current western style clothing and appeared strong and healthy. No two persons walked together, nor did any one person talk to another. Their total silence was most extraordinary, and more interestingly, there were wide spaces of approximately five feet between each person. I did not recognize anyone, and after observing them for a while, I suddenly found myself walking in their midst.

The landscape and environment through which we walked were one of total devastation. A catastrophic event had occurred that left the environment, buildings, homes, properties and landscape in ruins. There was no evidence of electricity or burning bon fires in the dark anywhere. Uniquely, we were able to observe even the smallest details of the horrendous destruction around us near and far away in the moonless night. We walked through what probably had been either neighborhoods, large metropolitan areas, large and small places of commerce, and perhaps some recreational parks. We also walked in the midst of wide-open fields with only a few occasional houses' or buildings' foundations remaining in the midst of the rubble. There was no sign of life nor evidence of skeletal remains. (In a more current dream I saw several TREMENDOUS fire explosions occurring throughout the vast landscape, one explosion after another. I also saw people, properties and buildings go up in flames. Evidently, these explosions were nuclear missile strikes. People turned into torches right before my eyes. Properties, buildings, vehicles, etc. erupted into flames while I stood in the midst of an inferno as a mere observer. I was not burned or harmed.)

As we walked, we repeatedly glanced to the left and to the right. No one paused, or slowed down. It seemed as though we were on a conducted tour. Countless enormous and smaller buildings' steel girders were greatly twisted out of shape or practically melted. Almost unrecognizable were cars, trucks, public transportation vehicles and other types of transportation of all various sizes whose steel frames were bent out of shape and totally contorted. They had been destroyed by intense heat. Highways and overhead highway passes were broken apart, disconnected or nonexistent for the exception of the remaining, almost total or partially "decapitated," vertical cement supports. We witnessed utter devastation, charred ruins, chaos and desolation.

Throughout all that we attentively observed, no one spoke a word or expressed a mournful sound. We seemed to have an understanding of what had occurred, and were not grieved about it. We often looked up to observe remains of what at one time must have been tall buildings. We looked around at all the debris and wreckage that laid everywhere. Yet, and strangely, however, we walked on a very wide unlittered path. It was as though a newly paved road had been laid down in the midst of the ruins for us to walk on while we observed the surrounding chaos. It was an endless observation of charred destruction, endless ruins, rubble and ashes. These sights were all too familiar to many of us. Still, no one spoke, and the eerie silence continued except for the sound of our footsteps.

After an endless period of observation we began to see a faint hint of dawning light in the sky ahead of us. We changed our focus of interest and directed our attention ahead as the sky quickly became brighter. We sensed excitement building up in our midst as we became focused on the sky. Then, instantly, we were all dressed in long white robes! I quickly became aware that we were walking on wide open white grounds. We began to revel in the increasing brightness of the sky with tremendous excitement while running and sounding forth loud boisterous cries of joy while repeatedly crying out, "JESUS!" We became delirious with excitement and ran toward an even more overwhelming Light, almost as if we were soaring. While the Lord Jesus did not appear before us in person, we instantly knew that THIS WAS THE RAPTURE!


The multitude of men and women coming out of the post nuclear attack ruins and destructions are the salt preservative within America: the remnant Church of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. (See Ezek. 14:12-23 in Interpretive Scriptures.) This is in line with what the Lord had told me in June 1998 as I was about to post http://www.do-you-love-me.org/wsomers/gjoa-2.html that summer: "My Church will be kept here to preserve this nation during its judgment." Their presence and faithful integrity (see Job 27:3-6) during America's nuclear attack preserves her from total extinction, after which man will still be able to walk throughout the land, even as scorched and desolate as it will become.

MATTHEW 5 (13) "You are the salt of the earth."

MARK 9 (50) "Salt [integrity] is good, but if the salt loses its flavor, how will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace with one another."

I compare what I saw in this dream to post WW II bombed out sites and post atomic destroyed environments of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. The destruction of a once thriving culture and illustrious nation which had been mightily blessed by God, a giant among nations, was tragic. Her shining glory had departed. Words fail me in trying to further describe these doomed and catastrophic scenes. They were horrendous to behold, and this emerging multitude of men and women are the remnant Church to whom God had previously revealed His declared judgment upon America (Babylon) in His Word (Jeremiah 50, 51; Revelation 18) as well as through visions, dreams and prophecies. They had already grieved in their hearts through prayer about this approaching calamity as God had repeatedly revealed it to them. However, it was futile to pray against it because "it was written" in God's Word. Their call as watchmen was to warn the Church of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and the world of impending judgment. (Ezek. 3:16-21) What they now witnessed was the full prophesied manifestation of God's wrath (His JUSTIFIED spent anger) upon a disobedient, faithless, sinful, decadent and rebellious nation because she had wilfully departed from God, rejected His Word, and mocked His grace. (Yet, all along she sang, "God Bless America.") She had legalized the killing of babies in the womb through abortion; legally ruled prayer unconstitutional in the schools and banned the public display of the Ten Commandments throughout the nation; openly exhibited acceptance and approval of sodomy, even the ordaining of homosexual ministers and performing homosexual marriages in some of the churches, and then allowing those couples to adopt children; abandoned herself to material idolatry, and prostrated herself to the worship of money. The tragedy of it all was that on her currency she had once declared "IN GOD WE TRUST" and yet that same currency became HER trust which she worshiped as her god.

(9) And the instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to build it and to plant it, (10) if it does evil in My sight so that it does not obey my voice, then I will relent concerning the good with which I said I would benefit it. (11) Now therefore, speak,...saying, 'Thus says the Lord: "Behold, I am fashioning a disaster and devising a plan against you. Return now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good." ' " (12) And they said, "That is hopeless! So we will walk according to our own plans, and we will every one obey the dictates of his evil heart."

During a desperate time in my life and not knowing Christ as my Savior, I dreamt three powerful and vivid dreams in May, June and July of 1975 which are too lengthy to describe. Briefly, in the first dream I was told that I had to change my ways. (I was deeply involved in the occult and witchcraft.) In the second dream, Jesus appeared before me and beckoned me to come to Him. The third dream was as follows: an enormous ancient book of an approximate size of twenty-four inches in length by sixteen inches in width, and about eight inches thick materialized before me, suspended in mid-air. A golden aura surrounded the enormous Ancient Book. With the bound edge of the book to the left, the black leather cover opened from right to left by itself. I beheld O-L-D ivory colored pages with Hebrew writing neatly written on each page. I had seen many Jewish newspapers when I lived in New York City and recognized Hebrew writing. (A Hebrew book is read in reverse; the bound edge of the book is at the right. Therefore, I was being shown this book starting at the end. Since I am living in the end time, that was the stage from where God wanted to begin His instruction in the Ancient Book, slowly taking my understanding back in time to where He had already foretold and made His sovereign declarations.) As ancient as this book was, there wasn't one smeared, creased, torn, dog-eared or a corner-ripped page. It was absolutely perfect in appearance. The same powerful Voice that spoke to me in the first dream began to speak in an instructive tone and said, "From this time on I will..." and then the Voice continued, however, speaking in a different language which I did not understand. I stood before the Ancient Book intently looking at each page while the Voice spoke instructively without end. The dream seemed endless and the pages continued turning by themselves, one at a time, momentarily pausing so that I could quickly gaze at both pages. Eventually this seemingly eternal dream faded while the awesome Voice was still speaking in the strange language.

Thereafter, for a whole year following those stunning dreams, I entered into a deeply anguished walk under the shadow of death. Those dreams were instrumental in preparing and leading me to finally understand that my deepest need was God's grace, mercy, hope, peace and strength found only in His Son, Jesus Christ. I responded to Jesus' beckoning call in the dream of June 1975, accepted Him as my Savior, and surrendered my heart and my life to Him fourteen months later on August 30, 1976. I received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit on October 11, 1976. From that time forth, the Lord has ministered to me not only through His Word, but through dreams which continue to this day. From 1989 to 1994, I received a series of dreams which made absolutely no sense to me. I did, however, discern that most of them were end time dreams. The Holy Spirit prompted me to write and file them away. During an approximate period between 1994 and 1997, it never failed that whenever I opened any Bible anywhere it almost always fell open to the Book of Jeremiah! After this began to occur repeatedly I discerned in my spirit that the Holy Spirit was prompting me to read Jeremiah. I did, and also reviewed both the major and minor prophets until He called me to begin research work on the Web in May 1997 for http://www.do-you-love-me.org/wsomers/gjoa-1.html and other subsequent posted dreams on the Web. Also in the fall of 1997, through a pastor, He prompted me to begin working on those dreams I had filed away a few years earlier. (I sought interpretative assistance from Pastor Paula Cavu for only http://www.do-you-love-me.org/wsomers/ju9h.html.)

Since 1997 I have searched the scriptures so as to present those which the Holy Spirit shows me agree with what God is revealing in each dream and is saying to the Church. I am deeply convicted in my spirit that part of those instructive words which the Voice spoke to me in the third dream of July 1975 have a strong and overwhelming objective toward this end. Therefore, I urge (exhort) my brothers and sisters in Christ to heed (pay attention to) God's Word in these crucial and spiritually quenched desperate times we are living in. Do not be deceived, and do not lean on the arm of the flesh or on your own understanding. Judgment upon America is at hand. Listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and heed the Word of God as declared in: (Hebrews).
