Wes Barron


Last night I had a very strange, positive, uplifting dream about Wes Barron.

I first met Wes in Jackson, Wyoming back in 2003.  We became good friends and had some good Christian fellowship.  He was really in tune with the Holy Ghost.  But I became concerned that Wes was spending too much time with worldy, false Christians.  The Lord had me warn Wes about these worldly friends, but Wes continued to spend time with them.  I thought that these people would drag Wes back into the world.

By 2006, the Lord told me to separate myself from Wes.

Around Thanksgiving in 2007, I was hitchhiking in Victor, Idaho and this car pulled over.  It was Wes and his mom.  Wes was in the passenger seat; his head was bandaged up and his arm was in a cast.  He told me that he was racing motorcycles in Utah and crashed.  He was in a coma for two days.  Now he was staying with his mom in Idaho.

That was the thing about Wes:  he absolutely loved speed.  One time he drove me over Teton Pass in his pickup and I asked him why he was in such a hurry (there was snow and ice on the road).  He was a very good downhill skier.  One time he was in a downhill race in Jackson and he was in fifth place when he wiped out and cut his hand real bad; Tommy Moe, the Olympic Gold Medalist, eventually won the race.  Wes also liked to rock climb; he was a risk taker.

I stayed with Wes, his mom and his stepfather for Thanksgiving.  Wes drove me to the main road between Tetonia and Sugar City, Idaho and then I headed to Montana.  That was the last time I saw Wes.

In 2009, I was contacted by some friends in Jackson.  They told me that Wes died while rock climbing near Jackson.  He was 26 years old.  I hitchhiked from Montana to Jackson and stayed with some friends for several days.  They went to the funeral and they said that the church was packed.  (My apologies to Wes Barron’s family—I just was not able to go to the funeral.)  Wes was very well-known in the Jackson area.

The dream.  In the dream, I was talking with Wes and some other guys.  We were going to go on a camping trip.  I couldn’t believe I was talking with Wes.  I thought he had died.  He told me that after he died, he was raised to life again.  It was such a pleasant surprise.  The dream was so real and it was so good to talk with Wes again and he was very happy.

I believe this dream is from the Lord.  After Wes died, I wondered if he made it to heaven because the Lord had me warn him about his lukewarm Christian friends.  I believe if someone has experienced justification by faith in Christ that they can lose their salvation.  But if someone has gone through their time of tribulation (purification) and they then experience The Second Coming, that they cannot lose their salvation.

I believe that this dream means that Wes is definitely in heaven.  Thank you, Lord, for revealing this dream to me.
