The Lincoln Dream – TRANSCRIPT November 9, 2020
it’s the dream I had on
November 9 2020. I saw Abraham Lincoln
at the Lincoln Memorial.
He was standing up in his seat with his
right hand held up and was being
addressed by Uncle Sam.
there were spotlights aimed at his
head and he was bathed in like this
and on the granite seat where he’d been
sitting was a stack of law books. and on
the bottom was a simple brown leather
rawhide Bible that was larger and
thicker than any of the other law books
on top. his top hat, the hat that Lincoln was
known for using, was standing on top
sitting on top of the law books. and it
kind of made the stack look like a
like a pyramid. Uncle Sam
asked him if he would, “Tell the truth, the
whole truth, so help me God.”
and Lincoln said, “That it’s all you will
get from me on this day.”
Uncle Sam walked backwards without
turning around and he stepped up onto a
platform and removed his patriotic hat.
and he whispered the words, “I am sorry
then he shifted his eyes to his right
and left and then to the right again as
if he were getting acknowledgement
from people behind him. a voice shouted
very loudly, “get it over with already.”
and then a hand appeared and pulled the
curtain along a piece of rope that
appeared to be about 50 feet long. so
just pulling a rope like this. and
this made it appear as if the judge were
standing in front of a large black
backdrop. and on each side hanging,
almost like a banner waving down,
was a tattered American flag on a pole.
Lincoln remained standing as if he
had never considered even sitting on the
seat. there were marks on his face like he
he had a sling over his left arm and a
bandage around his left hand with
blood showing through the palm.
and he kept a very stern face but was
obviously in slight pain
from whatever had happened. Uncle Sam
cleared his throat three times and then
he said “Hear ye. Hear ye.
The accused before you is here to admit
his crimes publicly and will do so
voluntarily. How do you plead Mr. Lincoln?” (not
“president” but “Mr.” Lincoln.)
The president never blinked his eyes. he
swallowed hard and he said,
“I won’t.” Uncle Sam winked at the
president and asked again while grimacing in a way to
get Lincoln’s attention.
“I won’t” was repeated. and Uncle Sam
looked back above and beyond the curtain
behind him. and then looked back where Mr. Lincoln was.
“You must make a plea.” But Lincoln responded by saying, “Well
then give me a trial by jury after I do.”
Lincoln simply looked straight ahead and
said nothing. two men then walked up behind Uncle Sam,
each went to a side, and they whispered in both of his ears.
and Uncle Sam
grimaced. and he dropped his head as the
two men went back behind the curtain.
Uncle Sam then stood before Lincoln and
the crowd of people who had appeared
near the chair at the Memorial .and this crowd was
aggressive, mean-spirited, they held signs and
specifically they had torches in their
hands. Lincoln stood taller and closed his eyes
slowly after looking both to his right
and his left. and each of the men who
stood behind Uncle Sam – these people
consisted of federal elected and
governors, and judges in their robes.
Uncle Sam walked up to Lincoln and whispered in
his ear and revealed tears running down
his cheek. he choked back a sob.
and he said, “Mr. Lincoln,
you have been found guilty by those in
power and are sentenced to death by
hanging for it.” Mr. Lincoln said, “as the former president
of this Union, I deserve to know what I am accused of
to begin with. I am an attorney and I know what the law
says.” Uncle Sam stated clearly and precisely
and with great struggle, “we do not recognize the law of man or of
God and simply find you worthy of death.
your time is over and a new dawn awaits
those who will dwell on this earth.”
and at this time the men standing behind
Uncle Sam came forward and they put a
noose around Lincoln’s neck and they tightened it.
then they pushed Uncle Sam forward while they threw the end of the rope over a marble
brace at the Memorial.
and they handed the end of the rope to
Uncle Sam and saluted him. Uncle Sam held that rope in his hands
for a very long time and he wept.
and then he faced Lincoln and he said,
“I’m sorry mar president.”
and at this statement, the men behind him
pounded him about the head and neck
until bruising began to appear in Uncle
and they yelled at him and said this, “You
address him as Mr. Lincoln,
nothing more.” Uncle Sam looked back at
the men and said, “You can hang me next for what
I’ve allowed you to do to my conscience.”
he then started pulling on the rope.
President Lincoln stood quietly and
began to feel the tautness of the rope
but he reached backwards and began
firing to grab something on his seat.
as Uncle Sam’s trained to pull and hold
the rope, Lincoln was trying to grab his
Bible. He was pushing the law books off of it.
but his fingers were slipping off of the
binding. he did get a hold of it but the jerking
of the rope made him drop it to the floor just as
his feet left the floor.
Lincoln’s eyes, they showed compassion
towards the elected and the appointed
men in front of him.
as Uncle Sam holding the rope tight
would not look at anything but the floor.
what’s interesting note in the dream
Lincoln never fought back after the Bible slipped from
his hands. and now he was just swinging slowly.
one of the judges, not the federal
officials, one of the judges
spoke up and said, “You can drop him now.”
and Uncle Sam very slowly and
respectfully dropped Lincoln to the
floor. he looked back at the men and he said, “I
hope you get what you deserve for this.”
then he held his chest and dropped to
the floor. he was dead within seconds with his eyes
wide open. and the crowd began to scatter including
the elected appointed men who had been behind him
encouraging this whole endeavor.
at that very moment the man appeared
that I had seen in the dreams for so
often. he knelt down besides President Lincoln
and said, “They didn’t have any idea what they were
doing and now the nation needs to brace itself
for what they deserve.”
He then walked over to Uncle Sam
closed his eyes tenderly and tapped the
heart area three times and he said,
“Rest in peace Uncle Sam. sorry you had to
see the ship go down.”
then the man looked right at me in the
dream and he said,
“Nation (specifically “nation”)
brace yourself for fire and ice
and don’t forget to anchor your soul.”
