“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.

The dream was within a short time possibly a month

I was seated at “The Marriage Supper of the Lamb” written in 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, 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 down 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 say,

“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:

Firstly, to bring change to my 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,
