Dreams & Visions
Central to the focus of this site is the concept of tent cities (or places of refuge as they are often referred to in the scriptures) as well as the dreams and visions of the saints.
One of the key reasons for this site is that, over the last few years there have been a few who have taught and written contrary to the teachings of the current and past Prophets and Apostles that we need not worry about such preparations at this time. They teach that the 2nd Coming of the Savior is 50-100 years away, often using the excuse that fulfillment of missionary work to the whole world, prophecies indicate that this is so. It is the "all is well in Zion" belief which is specifically cautioned about in the scriptures.
However, it is our belief that very shortly, the world and society we know will drastically and suddenly change. The time is shortly coming which has been prophesied and seen in dreams and visions since the world began. Some of the material contained on this site, specifically the dreams and visions section, is one of the reasons we believe that this is so. However, we believe each person should read and study the materials, then prayerfully consider and ponder the meaning so that they can reach their own conclusions.
In my experience and study, I have seen that the Lord rarely does anything without preparing His people in advance by communicating to His leaders, and very often also to the people to be involved, about what is to come. Throughout the ages, one of His primary ways of communicating such information has been through the means of dreams and visions. Joel specifically said that this will be so concerning the last days. This site contains a few of these communications shared by friends and members of our community.
"It is given unto many to know the mysteries of God; nevertheless they are laid under a strict command that they shall not impart only according to the portion of his word which he doth grant unto the children of men, according to the heed and diligence which they give unto him." - Alma 12:9
These dreams and visions are very sacred to those who have received them. Additionally, they have universally felt the need to share them with others in case what they find to be extremely important personally for them and their families might have some relevance, or at least strike a chord of familiarity, with others. This sharing is by no means an effort to try to claim revelation for others. They, nor I, claim any such authority, nor make any such declarations.
The vision of Joel has been fulfilled wherein he declared: "And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit' (Joel 2:28-32) ... " - Gordon B. Hinckley, November 2001 Ensign
In the early days of the restored Church, even in ancient days, such personal dreams and visions were often shared with others as a way to bolster each other's faith in the gospel. Occasionally, one person's personal revelation had some meaning or importance for someone else, but that had to be, and could only be, determined by the listening person. So it is with the dreams and visions shared on this site. Only you can determine their meaning, importance, or relevance to you and your family. This is a responsibility you must not abdicate to anyone else.
And so the information presented here, consisting of dreams and visions along with numerous physical/spiritual preparation ideas, is for each individual member of this site to ponder, pray about, and decide if there is any relevance or importance for themselves and their family. Perhaps it is relevant, or perhaps not. It is only and exclusively for each of us to decide individually.
Of course, the community of people that make up this site, for the most part, through their own personal study, revelation, dreams, and prayer, believe that the Lord has prepared places of refuge for the saints to gather in the last days. Many of us believe these events are not far off. Thus you will find that there is a sense of urgency in our preparations. We stand firmly by the prophet. We wait for his direction and guidance, and we do nothing save it has been commanded by the Lord through the proper priesthood channels.
