Matthew 26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.


*This dream is future. Jesus had already come back to earth to take His children home.
 
In my dream, I find myself reclining1 on my side at a long, long table.2 I look at the other side of the table and I recognize family members.3 We talk and laugh.4 As I look to the left and right, I can see people of different sizes. Some are very tall.5
 
I now see that the place where I am reclining has my new name6 engraved in bright gold symbols that describe my character.7 As I look at it, I repeat to myself, “That describes me; that describes me.”
 
I then look up and notice what seems to be long, iridescent birds flying through the air, but I do not notice the wings. They sing a beautiful song in four notes at once.
 
Quite some time has passed at the table, but there is not a sense of urgency. As we wait to be served, we marvel at the variety of food.8
 
I also notice my guardian angel9 standing behind me. He is tall and wears a dry misty-looking white robe. He possesses a very noble appearance and has a kind and gentle smile. I speak with him quite often. I almost want to cry and apologize for all the things I did on Earth, how I put him through so much in guarding me and all the times he watched me sin.10 In a soft voice he says that I need not worry or mention anything about it as all that is in the past.11 He tells me that Jesus, the great Host, would have done all12 that was needed to have me at the table to serve me.
