3 Tornadoes

This dream was pretty intense also. It took place outside some house in the country.

A storm was coming just as the sun was going down, shooting rays of orange and red just below the dark storm clouds. The dream became fast paced. Racing across the horizon were 3 tornadoes! 3 perfectly identical tornadoes in shades of red.

There was a small crowd of people in front of me consisting of friends and family. All of a sudden, the Earth seemed to drop from beneath us. Or maybe we became caught up above the sky, above the Earth into space. We were somehow above the Earth as it seemed to die beneath us.

And as quickly as the Earth dropped, it started spinning. But not as it should. Not counter-clockwise toward the east... but counter-clockwise towards the south. As if the axis had shifted drastically. It spun so fast and as it did, the stars became distorted and moving faster than a mixture between a Windows screen saver and the visualizer effects on iTunes. It was so intense that I woke up a little disoriented and breathing fast.

INTERPRETATION: To me, this dream has some strong Christian elements. The three tornadoes could represent the Holy Trinity-the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. With that in mind, the events in the dream could signify end of the world events.

"After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever." I Thessalonians 4:17

"Each star will disappear-- the sky will roll up like a scroll. Everything in the sky will dry up and wilt like leaves on a vine or fruit on a tree." Isaiah 34:4

The righteous will be separated and caught up in the air while the Earth is destroyed by fire and re-created. Though there was no fire in the dream, just the red tornadoes. In Exodus 13::21-22, God appears as a pillar of fire: 21 And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: 22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.
