Prophetic Vision at Mount Rainier Changes Desperate Man's Life Forever

A desperate retired career soldier receives a 'signal.' He and his family eventually travel to Mount Rainier in an attempt to go camping. The subsequent experience changes his life.

The following account was recently forwarded to me:

"I was a career soldier. I left active duty in March 2014, and also graduated with an MBA the same month. My life was ending in one regard and beginning in the same motion. The only contention was the economy. Getting out of the service was a little scary facing the uncertainty so I applied for jobs with no luck for the next few months until my unemployment checks ran out. No luck at all. Hundreds of resumes and no calls or interviews that didn't lead to any offers. I was in a bad place mentally. Depression kicked in pretty hard and I felt like suicide was the answer as I still had my military life insurance and I thought the money was better for my family than me being jobless.

Now, here if you pay attention, are the steps to ego death. I began a process of looking back through my life as I sat there in my basement with my loaded AR15 in front of me. I was a family man, having raised three kids, and was a well-accomplished soldier. The more I looked over my life, the angrier I got. Until, finally I yelled out, "God, why have you forsaken me". Tears were rolling down my cheeks and I immediately felt a warmth in my body and I could feel a presence with me. I felt my tears being wiped from my face and the warmth began to spread to my spine. Here it traveled up to my head and my head began to tingle. Instantly I was propelled into a series of visions. I was looking at myself in my past. I was shown my life in key moments and was able to view my thoughts as well as the thoughts of others at the same exact time. In doing so, I was able to see that whenever people come together and there is an interaction, both parties always rationalize their choice of words and their actions are rationalized to the same degree. I looked out the window from my basement and in the distance, I could see a brilliant white orb in the sky that then disappeared into the clouds.

For the next three days, I was at peace with the universe. I seemed to be connected to something as any question I would ask myself, I would get an answer pop up in my head that would be very convincing. I sat there and wrote a book for the first two days. On day three, I had a thought about camping, and when I went to wake my wife up, the first thing she says is that she had a dream about our camping. I saw this as a sign and said to her, "Let's go today". So, that is what we did. Without a plan, just went to Walmart and bought sleeping bags, a tent, and all the items we thought we would need and headed towards Mount Rainier.

Now, we must have stopped at three campsites before we got to the entrance to Mount Rainier National Park. They were all booked up and had no vacancies. The park had two campsites so it was our last hope. After stopping at the kiosk at the entrance to the campsite we had to drive around the park to see if we could find a site that did not have a reservation on it. After an hour of driving, we could not find one open spot. Giving up, we started driving for the exit. All of the sudden, a park ranger steps out on the road in front of us. We slow down and ask him if all the spots are booked up and he replies yes they are sold out. I then ask where I need to go to get a refund as I paid at the kiosk. He told me to stop at a shed near the entrance. We stop, I get out and go up and process the refund. The guy behind the counter stops me as I begin to walk away after the refund is complete. He says, "Hey, we have some primitive campsites outside of the park that are free if you are interested". I look at the map he shows me, and my wife agrees that we came to camp so camping is what we are going to do.

Now, as we pull into this primitive campsite off the grid, we are alone. It is right next to a river and I ask my wife if it looked like her dream and she replied, "Yes this is exactly what my dream looked like." I felt as if I was going to receive a message sometime during our trip, but nothing could prepare me for the events that would take place that night.

So, around 10:00pm I and my wife decide to lie down. The kids were already sleeping, so we both got into our sleeping bags and were looking straight up at the sky as you could see the sky through the top of the tent which had that mosquito netting allowing for a perfect view of the night sky. As we watched, a brilliantly lit, white sphere went right over the top of us, a few hundred feet above the trees. It made no sound but was quite the sight to see. I looked at my wife and said, "What was that?" To her reply, "I am going to bed". I got out of the tent as fast as I could and by the time I got out to look for the object, it was gone. I tried staying up for another hour to keep the fire going, but nothing unusual happened. Finally, I returned to the tent and went to sleep. I do not know how long I was asleep, but the next thing I know, my wife is waking me up saying she hears two people talking behind the tent. I stand up and look around knowing that people would need flashlights to navigate the forest and did not hear anything or anyone. I asked her, "Are you sure?" To her reply, "Yes" and my son chimed in and confirms that he heard them too. So, now everyone is spooked and we all went to the car to sleep out the rest of the night.

I waited for my family to fall asleep and looked at the clock just before I fell asleep that read 12:00. As soon as I sleep I am propelled into this extremely vivid dream. It is me, I am on all fours in a sort of praying position, and in front of me, I can see legs and feet. The being in front of me is large, I would say twice my size. The skin is blue and hairless. I attempt to look up to see who is in front of me and something is restraining me from looking up too far. I ask the being, "Who are you?" The being responds, but the way in which it responds is telepathic. I can see these illuminated golden symbols pass through my mind and I catch myself mimicking what is being conveyed as I utter the word "God." I asked it, "Why have you brought me here?"

Instantly I was propelled into a vision where I see a woman and two children in a horrific scene. They are huddled in the corner of a kitchen as the scene spans out I can see that the building they're in has been bombed. The vision keeps spanning out as I get a clearer picture of what is transpiring and I see tanks down the road approaching the house with the woman and children. There are soldiers walking next to the tanks wearing gas masks. The scene spans out to the entire globe and I see the explosions from bombs all over the place. I came out of the vision crying. I said, "I don't understand." Here a shorter vision is shown where I see the same type of illuminated orbs that I saw the night before coming off the planet while it was still calm. I took this vision as some people will be saved before the end.

I tell the being, "I do not understand", and being put in another vision. This time I can see that I am in Jerusalem. Only war has already hit here as the buildings are blown up and the entire city seems deserted. I see me then I am put in first person view where I start walking down a path. This path leads to a wall. Along the wall, there is a giant green door. I walk up to the door and knock on it three times. A man dressed in all black with black beard answers. I lift up my left hand and show him an olive tree branch and say, "I come in peace, may I enter?" He steps aside and says, "Yes, we have been awaiting you." He then leads me to the dome of the rock and then takes me in the building down to the basement. Here the bedrock is exposed and he bends down to gesture for me to inspect some of the rock that seemed discolored. I reach down to touch the rock and the entire vision goes white. I am then back in front of the blue being, more confused than ever. I shake my head and say, "I do not understand. Who am I?" The being then shows me with its hands, a hologram of a headshot of Jesus with a crown of thorns. I shake my head at it and say, "I don't understand," to which the hologram morphs into a reflection of me and I am looking at myself. The dream ends with a bright white light and I wake up in the car. The time reads 4:00.

I look out my car window and the same orb UFO from the night before is there a few thousand feet above me. It moves to the top of Mount Rainier, hovers, and just as I was about to wake my wife to show her it returned, it shoots straight up in the air like a bullet out of a gun. We pack up the car and left camping shortly afterward. I told my wife about the dream on the way back home. Now, I was an atheist before this encounter and came out with more questions. This drove me to study and learn and that is exactly what I have been doing for years since. I know who they are now. They are the shining ones. I have written threads on the subject matter, but make no mistake, these beings are here, they watch us, and there are things at stake in this life. Your soul is one of them." JC
