“Sam Donaldson, Part II”

January 5th 2018

(Initial dream 1990)



Greetings Dear Saints,

I had a dream just over a week ago but then it was not filled with the usual activity one would expect in a normal dream. 

This was more like a word given within a dream; actually it was a short sentence.


I heard the following,

“Sam Donaldson, dead at 84”

Believe me when I say, this is a highly unusual type of dream / word. While I would not normally accept the idea of the Holy Spirit bringing such a word, perhaps the Lord has reasoning in this particular case. 


You are most probably asking the question, why are we discussing a man that most have forgotten. However, I have a history of sorts with this man. I had a dream about him around 1990 and wrote to him explaining the dream to him.


Have been praying about this for a week and have come to the conclusion that very possibly more prayer is needed. And also I am asking for a few of you to agree with me for salvation to visit this man if it has not yet come. 


What lends to the credibility of this dream is my immediate thinking was this man had already passed away since I had not heard of him in many years. However when I began to do a search for him, I found his bio located at:   https://www.biography.com/people/sam-donaldson


I found that Sam Donaldson is not only alive but his age is 83 years and his birthdate is March 11th

Sam Donaldson will be 84 on March 11 of this year, 2018.


Who is Sam Donaldson? Many of you may not know or remember whom Sam Donaldson was however at one time he was a household name in news broadcasting. He covered the Whitehouse for four decades among his other reporting duties during his long career for ABC News.

“Sam Donaldson”

Many years ago I was watching the evening news and the different correspondents each gave their view of that day’s events. And I felt the Lord speaking to me concerning them. I do not believe that Sam Donaldson was in that newscast that evening but the Lord was speaking and I surely wanted to listen.


The issue was the pride and arrogance of man and I believed the idea He was trying to get across to me was that education, wealth and influence led to a pride that was not just over indulgent but very dangerous to that individual. 


Revelation 19:7-9, 
“Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. Then he said to me, write: “Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!”


The dream began 

“I was seated at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb”

We were seated among multitudes even at our table; however, there were two men, one to my right and the other to my left. 
I had my head facing downward while listening and conversing with these two Saints.

Suddenly, I looked up and saw this exquisite man dressed in white, his face was beautiful and he was wearing a ring on his left hand and I heard him saying,

“My Lord”

The man was Sam Donaldson!


I remember being awestruck with the presence of God while in this dream and great peace and joy were in over abundance. 

So many times we write off these affluent people without even so much as a simple prayer, and yet the Lord loves them! We will never know on this side of eternity all that they are exposed to and all that the Lord is accomplishing in their hearts.


I did write a letter to Sam Donaldson and I said the following: You do not know me but I have a small printing business in Florida and the Lord gave me a dream concerning you, I went on to explain the dream to him.


Then at the end of the letter I said to him, “you may think of me as a lunatic but one-day you will sit across from me and partake of the marriage supper of the Lamb.”


I mailed that letter without expecting a reply but I know in my heart that Sam Donaldson has been set aside and marked as a Saved man by the Lord Jesus!


I believe the Lord was addressing two issues

First was to bring change to my own heart and the heart of others towards these people. To remove the callousness within me and to come to the realization that certainly these people are loved by God. And He is actively seeking them. 


The second point is that by this dream, the Lord was using me to speak in to the life of Sam Donaldson, to plant a seed that the Holy Spirit would continue to water and one day will come to fruition and he will sit at the marriage supper of the Lamb!


Blessings to you and your house,
