The essential matter mentioned a fortnight ago on my ‘back to basics’ refocusing upon Jesus’ Return definitely has not gone away and we’re now going to weigh and pray about a couple more folks’ perspectives. [See Holy Spirit says “Brace yourself! Get ready for Jesus’ soon Return and Supra-natural light of God’s glory is manifesting... as well as Chris G Bennett’s recent four postings]
Scott Hefty has been following this blog for years but got in touch only last October to confide a couple of awesome, unforgettable visions he’d experienced relating to the ‘snatching away’ or Rapture of all believers in Jesus. We discussed them and I asked approval to publish, which he kindly gave. Events arising out of the 2020 presidential election delayed my publication, however, until the time is right – that is, now!
Here’s what Scott saw in Maryland, with a brief preface, as copied from his email reply:
As for the Rapture…
The first vision was the most powerful in my life and has guided me in many ways. More about this below, but first…
Do they give me any sense of timescale for the Rapture and Return?
Yes. It was clearly the time in which we live, meaning, I was driving the car I owned in 1991 to what was my home in the vision. (In reality, the house still belongs to the parents of a close friend). The bottom line is, I believe that I will not taste death, but I will be among those alive in 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17.
For the timeline, I look at Matthew 24:34: “Truly I tell you: the present generation will live to see it all.” However, in verse 36 Jesus tells us that, “Yet about that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, not even the Son: no one but the Father alone.” (Oxford Study Bible, Revised English Bible)
I understand “the present generation” to be those born in the time that Israel is back in her land, so I agree the century of 1950 – 2050 is our focus without saying a specific day and time. Just like the fig tree, we can see the season is soon upon us.
1990s Visions of the Rapture
In the late ’90s, (1996-1999) I was blessed with a vision in which another friend named Dave and I were at the gas station (petrol for the Brits)…In the dream I was at the gas pump filling up when suddenly a massive black cloud formed with wind blowing. As I looked up, there was a loud crack in the sky and the center of the cloud opened and Jesus was there. I looked around for Dave and he was coming out of the store with the drinks looking up in amazement. I said “Dave, it is our Lord Jesus” and we both went up to be with the Lord. I could see others from the town joining us. Similarly, I would just about reach Jesus and I would wake up. I saw this vision 2 more times but in the second and third times, our wives joined us as we went up into the clouds.
2014 Vision of ‘The Bubble’
My Maryland men’s group travels a couple of hours every spring for a retreat at New Life Bible Camp in Pennsylvania. We join some other men’s groups from the area so there are about 50 of us there. This dream/vision took place in the “upper room” of the lodge where we worship and listen to our speaker for teaching. In the vision we are there having worship with our brothers. I notice that my parents, who passed away in 2012 & 2103, are there along with some other people that I don’t know. Then Jesus walks into the room and is standing at the corner of the railing at the top of the steps. Jesus says “Greetings everyone. We are heading home this evening.” The next moment, the room is hovering above the trees encapsulated in a clear bubble. We begin to ascend and we continue to worship as I am filled with joy in not only seeing Jesus and going home, but also in seeing my parents again.
This vision replayed twice more over the next couple of months without much variation.
I pray these visions bring blessing to you and glory to God. Thanks for letting me write them down. It is the first time I have done so. I believe God is calling me to share them more often now that “the imminence of that harvest day becomes increasingly obvious” (from today’s Richard’s Watch – ).

PS – More about the First Vision.
In my dream, I was driving the car I owned in 1991, which was a 1972 Cadillac with the roof cut off like a convertible with the roof down…As I drove into the driveway, which was David’s parents’ house, the song “Grave Robber” by Petra was playing on my car radio and from all the open garages on the cul-de-sac. I suddenly heard a loud sound like a crack in the sky and a shout from above. I looked up and I saw Jesus in the clouds. I immediately rose up into the air. As I was ascending in the vision, I thought: “This is the rapture !!!” Then I thought, “No, this is just a dream. I will wake up any second now.” When I didn’t wake up and I kept ascending, I yelled out “Jesus, Jesus, my Jesus !!!” I reached out my arms to wrap them around his shoulders, and just as my fingertips were an inch away, I felt my wife shaking me awake. My shouting in the vision was making a terrible sound to her. When I told her what I had just experienced she was amazed.
I had this dream/vision 2 more times over the next month or two. The second time it was exactly the same, except my wife Debbie was there in the yard and we went up to meet the Lord in the air holding hands. The third time was exactly the same as the second vision, except we had a son and all of us went up to meet the Lord in the air holding hands.(Now we have 3 sons).
The strange thing is that at the time I wanted to tell David, but I knew he was still unsaved and it would never have made sense to him…Fast forward to 2020 and I recently reconnected with David on Facebook…I know from his profile and posts that he is a believer in Christ now. Praise God. I now am just now feeling led to tell him about this because he will, with his renewed mind, be able to understand and be blessed by the vision that involves his parents’ house.
I used to obsess about the house. Thinking I must have to live there for this to come to pass. Whether I do or don’t live there; and wherever we are when the trumpet blasts and the archangel shouts, we will see Him in the air. We will go and meet the Lord in the air.
