Beautiful Dreamer

In Fever Season, one of the slave characters, Little Mo, has a very vivid, prophetic dream that warns the Tolliver family of impending disaster. thHTLKZ8RF It was a bit of a jump for them to work through the idea that a slave child’s dream might really be a timely warning from the Lord.  However, to their fictitious credit, they acted on the fictitious information and were able to spare the family some degree of fictitious heartache.sgimg I thought that Dreams may be a timely topic to discuss today. Prophetic Biblical dreams and their interpretation are not often taught in traditional mainstream church circles and thus may be somewhat of an unknown quantity to readers.  I don’t know why Dreams should be an off-limits topic. I suspect that it was tossed into that large pile in the laundry basket of “Gifts God doesn’t have need of anymore now that the Bible is complete.” However, I can think of no other subject that has more Scriptural foundation from Genesis thru Revelation. Sleepers 2God has always talked to His people in dreams and visions. As I have mentioned in previous posts, His modus operandi does not change (Hebrews 13:8) Thus, indicating to me that He still communicates with us that way today. Job 33:15-17 relates that ” In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, in slumberings upon the bed: Then He opens the ears of men and seals their instruction. That he may withdraw man from his purpose and hide pride from man…” Quite frankly, I believe that it is the only time the Lord can have our undivided attention, especially in this day and age. Have you been dreaming and disregarded them because you can’t make any sense of them? Cougar_Under_House-07f2fOr felt that even though the dream was extremely memorable and woke you from sound sleep that it must have just been the effect of the spicy food you had for supper. It is more likely that God is trying to get your attention. For those of us who crave a closer relationship; who want more of His Presence and wisdom.  This prophetic privilege is something to be desired, prayed for and studied. You may ask why would God need to use ambiguous dreams when there is a big book of His scripture that He can speak through? Proverbs 25:2 Speaks to that by saying  “that it is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter.”  He is God. thR5V17DPS He does it the way He chooses best. I believe that it pleases Him when we acknowledge His love letters and search for their  meaning.  He absolutely does speak to us through scripture. That said, I have had several dreams wherein I was led to specific Bible verses that spoke to me about a certain matter.sleepers 3  Dream Combo! The more you honor and take stewardship of the dreams He gives you,the more He will talk to you, imparting all sorts of things He would like you to know. ( Here lately, I receive Post topics to write about!) If you ignore the dreams, refuse to acknowledge them as priority Godly communication or neglect to jot them down for later study and later they dissolve like the morning mist: then after a while He will quit knocking at your door. How sad. Little Mo discovered in our Civil War novel, there are no Bible verses that dealt with their immediate and specific situation  in 1863 Vicksburg, Mississippi. If your ear is spiritually tuned and you are seeking His face, I believe He will start speaking into your life while you are sleeping. Once you get accustomed to that He may talk to you in other ways as well. Joseph, Jesus’ step-father, had several experiences with dreams for immediate critical situations. The first in Matthew 1:20-21 involving approval for his betrothal to Mary and again later,when he was told to take the family and immediately high-tail it for Egypt to escape Herod’s purge of baby boys.( Matthew 2:13-14) thZJD674ULLet us not fail to mention the wise men being warned, in verse 12 , not to see King Herod on their way home. They were all in good company with virtually every major player in God’s word. It is my contention that as we edge further into the end times this mode of ” now communication” will become more and more important and common. As the darkness intensifies, then our Light, our obedience will be extremely critical with regard to immediacy. We must be paying attention and listening for His voice…. “Leave right now and don’t ask why. Turn left on this road, there is someone I want you to talk to. Stop here, someone needs your help and encouragement. Don’t get on the freeway in the morning, I want to keep you safe.” Have you been dreaming?   Joel 2:28-29 prophesies that just prior to the end times that the ” Lord will pour out His Spirit upon ALL flesh: your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also I will pour out my spirit upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days.” All flesh means just that, everybody: young old, rich and poor.th9DUS0TV4 Are you ready to answer questions when your  neighbors start freaking out, asking  you to explain to them what this vivid, technicolor, intense message means that the Lord has dropped into their sleeping brain the night before? Are you prepared with skills, Godly wisdom and honed Spiritual gifts so that when people on the street or at work ask you to interpret dreams that they’ve had you will be ready to help them and lead them to salvation and empower them with the Holy Spirit? We had better get ready, it is coming. I would be happy to hear and discuss any dreams that you may have been having or are curious about. What have you been dreaming? *Editorial note: Please make sure any extra- Biblical revelation lines up with Scripture.  Bible 3If you are receiving dreams or visions or messages that contradicts God’s Word then it isn’t from Him. I refer you to  1 John 4:1 who cautions us to test the spirits Devil 3 (Satan is a  liar and great counterfeiter of everything God does.)
