Dolly Parton isn't taking a recent dream she had lightly. The iconic country music star says the dream she received months ago is a staunch warning for believers everywhere.
She composed the song called "Don't Make Me Come Down There" and, instead of receiving gifts for her birthday on Jan. 19, she wanted to give the new tune as a gift to the world.
"I finished it as things would come to me, and I just felt like I should drop it on my birthday," Parton says. "It is a song that came to me in a dream and I felt like it was worth putting out there. It's something special. Well, it's special to me."
During a nationally-televised Christmas special in early December, Parton performed her hit song, "Go to Hell," warning about the reality of Satan. She said at that time, "My brothers and sisters, I'm here to tell you that Satan is real, and he is walking around amongst us, trying to destroy everything that's good and beautiful. He wants to break our hearts and minds, destroy our dreams and plans. He wants to tear us up into little pieces, break us down and send us straight to hell."
Her recent dream, she said, was vivid and real to her.
"Last night I had a dream about God," Parton said in an Instagram post. "He was standing on a mountain top, looking down on us and in my dream I heard Him say, 'Don't make Me have to come down there. My children, you had best beware. If you don't pay attention, consequences will be dire. Don't make Me have to come down there.'"
In the song, which you can hear in this YouTube video, Parton said the Lord exclaims, "I've told you time and time again. You can't disobey and hope to win. I am still the boss here, in case there's any doubt. You know I put you in this world and I can take you out."
