I've rewritten large parts of it for clarity. The main idea remains the same. Extremist Judeo-Christian beliefs have won America's culture war.

It did not look like some one would have been buried, but it was a question of the whole country. I saw also a vision about a church which had fallen on ground and was covered by dust.

Please keep in mind that although it could happen it doesn't have to happen. God's saints can intervene and pray to avert certain things. I am counting on all of you to take what I am about to share seriously enough that you will pray for God to intervene so it does not take place.

I was in an airplane and I was traveling overseas to the Middle East. I knew in the dream that this was the destination. When I arrived there was snow and ice on the ground. Yes, I know that this is not consistent with the Middle East weather but it has a meaning that I will share later.

I then took a bus to go to some business meetings for my secular job. The bus traveled many roads and finally we go to this very steep driveway that went straight up like onto a mountain.

It was a solid sheet of ice so I was panicking as the bus driver was going up. I even commented how can we make it up this hill. Somehow after a few slides we made it to the top. Once at the top there was instant confusion. The building where my meetings were to be was in shambles.

Part of the building had a medical clinic or laboratory in it that had been raided by people who took all the supplies. The building had been stripped of all its natural resources. The bus had left me there with many people who were in confusion.

I then took out my cell phone to call my wife but the phone network was down and I could not reach her. The location that I was at then changed to a camp scene where many homeless people were living.

Frequently, I kept trying to call home to talk to my family but there was consistently no signal. I had many visions from within the dream. At one point there was an announcement made in the camp that the United States had been invaded by an army. I tried to call my family again, but could not get a signal on my phone.

The phones simply would not work. Back in the USA, my wife was unable to call me either. Her phone would not work. I had a vision in the dream that the People in the church were all working together to take care of each other because there was so much confusion in the USA.

In the dream I got to the point of frustration and depression. I missed my family so much and wanted to go home to help them but even the airlines were unable to fly out. It was confusion throughout the world.

Meanwhile I was starving because there was no food to be found. Oddly there were people who had food but they were people who were behind the attacks and they knew they were coming ahead of time.

They had plenty of food and wealth but refused to share what they had with the starving people in the camp. I yelled at these people and declared things such as how dare you do this to people. They just laughed in my face and went on their way to leave us to our starving condition.

I began to cry out to God asking Him why this was happening. The Lord immediately answered and said to me. I told you about this ahead of time. You even prophesied about it but you were not prepared for it.Women are divided into a small range of social categories, each one signified by a specifically colored dress in a similar style.

Handmaids wear red, Marthas wear green, and Wives wear blue. Econowives, the lower-class women who still have minimal agency, are sort of a mixture of all these categories, so they wear stripes ().

(edited from a paper I wrote in college about the book) In , when Margaret Atwood published The Handmaid’s Tale, Ronald Regan had declared “Morning in America,” and society was going to renew itself by returning to the old values.

Just like Celie and most of the female characters in The Color Purple, Offred and the reds in The Handmaids Tale are not treated as individuals with independent selves, but as tools to benefit the male’s need for power and control. In both Novels the authors choose to group the women into different social classes.
