Today I am going to tell you something very controversial – the approximate number of years we have left before Jesus Christ’s return. This was revealed to me in a dream in 2014. Two others that I know, have also had similar dreams as you will read in this article.

But first let us discuss in brief the two major requirements expected of Christians who really want to enter the kingdom of God.

  1. Righteousness (Holiness): 1 Corinthians 6:9 says that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God. Hebrews 12:14 also says that without holiness no one will see the Lord. You might argue that according to Ephesians 2:8-9 salvation is only by grace (through faith) not works. That is true. However, you should also read the next verse – verse 10 – which says that “We are His (God’s) workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works . . . that we should walk in them.” Therefore, just as James also said, faith and good works go hand in hand, without good works (righteousness), faith is dead.
  2. Endurance. In Matthew 24:29-31, Jesus said that we shall be raptured by the angels at His appearing after the Tribulation. Paul also said in Acts 14:22 that “We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God. Even John, in Revelation, saw that the rapture will take place after Christians have suffered in the Tribulation. Starting in Revelation 8 we read about the 7 trumpets that will be sounded. Trumpets 1-6 speak of the Tribulation; however when the seventh and last trumpet is sounded, it is said: “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ. It is also at this point that the mortal bodies of kingdom-eligible Christians are transformed into immortal ones and raptured (1 Corinthians 15:51-53).

Prior to this, the 7 seals of a scroll which begin to be discussed in Revelation 5 also talk about Christians suffering and some being martyred in the Tribulation before the rapture in Revelation 6:12-17 when the sixth seal is opened.

All people left behind then suffer the wrath of God which will be more severe than the Tribulation.

Because Jesus is returning to take us home after the Tribulation, we must develop endurance to ensure we do not deny Him during the difficult Tribulation when many Christians will be persecuted and killed by the Anti-Christ. “He who endures to the end shall be saved” (Matthew 24:13).

That said, I will now tell you the approximate number of years we have left before our Lord Jesus returns.

In 2014, I had a short dream which I believe was from God. In the dream, I found myself with a one Ronie Niyonshima. He told me: “We have twenty years left before Jesus returns.” I then asked him: “You mean twenty years?” To which he responded, “Do not say that we are left with exactly twenty years but rather around twenty years.” And the dream ended.

If my dream was from God, and I believe it was, then it means that Jesus is returning around the year 2034 which is about fourteen years from now! Hallelujah.

The morning after I had this dream, I shared it with a friend called Dennis. About two days later, Dennis called to tell me a dream which Elizabeth, his (then) nine-year-old daughter had had that morning. In her dream, Elizabeth was taken up to Heaven. While there, angels showed her different people’s mansions. When she requested to see her mansion, the angels told her that it would be ready in twenty years. So, still in the dream, she returned to earth and lived for another twenty years and when they had elapsed, she went back to Heaven. To her delight, she found her mansion ready.

Was it a mere coincidence that in the same week I dreamt of being told that Jesus was coming back in about twenty years Elizabeth also dreamt that she would return to heaven after twenty years and find her heavenly mansion completed? I think not! I believe that God wanted to confirm my dream by the one He gave Elizabeth.

On 25th May 2020 (six years after these two dreams), another person (Esther, a member of our church) had a dream that further confirmed mine and Elizabeth’s. In Esther’s dream, the Tribulation had begun. She was locked up in the house with her family. Her daughter, who is now only nine months old, was about twelve years old in the dream. She (the daughter) decided to go out to a supermarket to get her parents food. When she got there, the store teller refused to take her cash but advised her to go have the money put on a microchip which would be inserted in her body; only then would she be able to ‘buy or sell’. Her daughter immediately remembered an instruction by her parents; to never permit/have anything inserted in her body. She therefore ran away from the supermarket and returned home.

Still in the same dream, Esther was admonished to patiently endure the Tribulation. She was also told that the Anti-Christ still had another three and a half years left to rule the world before Jesus returned. Then the dream ended.

Now, let us do the maths of this dream. Because her baby who is nine months old in 2020 was about twelve years old in the dream, we must add about eleven to the year 2020. This takes us to about 2031. Further recall that in this dream the Anti-Christ had about three and a half years before Jesus’ return. So, to the year about 2031, we must add three and a half years. This takes us to about 2034/5!

My dream was in 2014. It pointed to about 2034 as the year Jesus would return. Elizabeth’s dream was also in 2014; it also pointed to about 2034. Six years later in 2020, Esther who did not know the details of either mine or Elizabeth’s dream also had a dream that pointed her to about 2035. Is this all just coincidence? Or could it be that the Devil is ‘playing’ with the three of us? Most probably not.

I believe these dreams are from God especially since the Bible prophesies of events preceding the Lord’s return which are being fulfilled before our eyes.

Folks, Jesus is coming soon – in about fifteen years! Better get ready. Prepare yourself for “the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ” by “denying ungodliness and worldly lusts; live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age” (Titus 2:12-13). Living right is paramount because the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:9) and without holiness no one will see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14). We are saved by grace alone through faith. However, realize also that faith without works (holiness) is dead.

Furthermore, let’s be ready to endure great trials in the soon coming Tribulation. Only “he who endures to the end shall be saved” (Matthew 24:13). Be ready to suffer for Jesus even to the point of death.

The time is short. We have only about fifteen years to go!

Maranatha. Come Lord Jesus.
