Dreams, Visions, Prophecy, Discernment and your Holy Spirit Super Power – are you using it?
Many Pastors and well- meaning prophets are pointing fingers at each other over man made interpretation and dispensed doctrine instead of speaking God’s word as it is written. Over the years and even now, I have heard so many claims, judgements without a trial, prosperity promises, prosperity curses, and many a congregation getting their butt paddled for man’s perceived pet sins – all going to hell fast and stuck on the milk.
Many of these want to have sole rights to their ability to possess some hidden treasure in their ability to dream, see visions and talk to God. Be honest, you all know exactly what I’m talking about. Some enjoy drilling you about your salvation and put a yoke around you questioning whether or not you truly have experienced the Holy Spirit, even questioning if you are worthy enough to have it. There are so many wrong things being done to stifle the growth of God’s people. Many pastors are now coming forth pointing out the wrongs of the false shepherds. Time is short, isn’t it a better use of time to simply preach the truth and direct the people to search the scriptures for themselves? Maybe?
It is clear that the Lord and the prophets such as Jeremiah and Isaiah say that God wants you to READ HIS WORD AND KNOW WHAT HE HAS DECLARED and not be swayed off track by MAN’S ideas of his version of things and especially for you to pay attention to the dreams he has given to you that are for his edification. Take each one before the Lord and he will send the Holy Spirit to show you what it means for you or guide you to the one to share it with. Remember, never cast your pearls before swine.
1 Timothy 4 :1-3
1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
Whereas in the last days your young will dream dreams and have visions…is this not for edification and signs of how to maneuver? Is it not for seeing the signs and times of the Prophets as well for personal warnings? Do we not all have dreams that are for a purpose to edify our lives? Are these not sent by the Lord?
Throughout my life, as I am sure so have many others, I have had many warning dreams…that pertained to me. Many visions of seeing what is coming and taking place…and soon to see take place in my own life and world around me.
That being said, it is so true that God speaks to us in dreams and visions. I believe it is a gift of the Holy Spirit, and yet, there are those who do not believe in the God I believe in who also have dreams and visions. One in particular is Albert Pike a self-proclaimed Satanist who worships Lucifer and desires to have him out into the light. He declared his vision was given to him by Lucifer. His vision is the step by step roadmap for the Illuminati and all those ushering in a one world order.
So you see, even professed atheists have dreams and visions of things to come into their own lives. Many have nightmares that are omens of something that is to take place or for other reasons. But, that does not mean it will come to pass. God determines what will be and he gives us dreams in order to see what is coming and avoid much danger when we learn to heed it. In some cases the dream is a foretelling of something that will take or has just taken place in your immediate life. A kind of preparation for what is to come.
Dreams have always been a concern when there is a definite warning felt upon waking. Generally dreams pertain to the person having it, and can involve people they are close to or know. It is a message to them specifically. It can be a warning or a blessing. Biblically, let’s take a look at Jacob’s son Joseph who had many dreams and also had the gift of interpreting dreams.
The Bible tells us he was always having dreams and sharing them with his brothers who didn’t always appreciate hearing him, like the time he saw his own future. It was glorious and he was going to rule over the land and his brothers would bow to him.
5And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more. 6And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed: 7For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf. 8And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.
9And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. 10And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth? 11And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.
He later interpreted a dream for the Pharaoh foretelling 7 years of abundance and 7 years of famine that won him favor enough to be made Viceroy over all of Egypt, second in power only to Pharaoh, thus his own dream manifested.
The Prophet Daniel is another one that the Bible tells us had such a gift of interpreting dreams. King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had a dream of a statue that haunted him and Daniel was the only one who could interpret it for him which won him favor with the king.
“But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;”
Daniel 2: 47-48
47 The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.
48 Then the king made Daniel a great man, and gave him many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief of the governors over all the wise men of Babylon.
So dreams are not a rare thing, everyone dreams and most all can remember at least the ones that stand out. Many have no idea what their dreams mean until they come to pass and play out in their lives. Others have a knowing and can tell what it means right away. Many take their dreams to God in prayer to understand the meaning and the spirit it was sent from. Was it from a Heavenly Spirit, or from a demonic spirit? Or was it from eating a bad pizza? Without getting off into dream interpretation, which is not my intent, the point to be made is that we all have dreams with meaning and purpose. Many are prophetic as they tell us of what is to happen in our lives and some tell us what has happened while we slept.
I will Pour Out My Spirit
In this last age beginning with our Lord and King Jesus it is written that the Lord will pour out his spirit on all flesh and we shall all prophesy, dream dreams and young men shall see visions. Sadly we have been told by FALSE TEACHERS that this would happen in the last days as though they were far off and not until then would we receive such gifts…yet this is the gift of the Holy Spirit as written in Joel and fulfilled at the coming of our Lord for all generations. The devil has convinced many of his twisted interpretation in doctrine and sadly taught it in theology as though it were true. It is time to learn the power we have with the Holy Spirit and our Lord who dwells within us!
28And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
30And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
32And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.
AND THE PROPHECY OF JOEL WAS FULFILLED…the last days began at the time of our Lord.
17And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
LAST DAYS BEGIN AT THE TIME OF JESUS
The Lord told us that the end of the time of the age of the gentiles would be as in the days of Noah…and Sodom and Gomorrah…which were very wicked days. Today in our final showdown to the fulfillment of what will take place at the Lord’s coming, we hear many people say…“I’m tired of waiting.” While most of these tired ones have all their conveniences and praise small and sorrow little if at all for those suffering elsewhere in the world or those hidden in the tunnels. Many are being tortured, used as sex slaves and many have been organ harvested alive. Great evils are performed daily by abducting and exploiting humanity in all forms of evil, it is a multi billion dollar business for the great merchants of the earth also known as the Cabal.
Most who are impatient, have no grasp of the magnetude of evil that has and is being done as casually as swatting flys, let alone even see the great evil they have brought upon themselves by being complacent….and yet, even now they see it not. It is Trumps fault or Biden’s fault…absolutely someone else’s fault and not theirs.
And then some yell how stupid those people look who are praising God, shouting fear not and to have faith.
It is sad, it is wrong, it is Biblical and it is all written that it would be as this. But through it all, the dry bones are rising up. Many are called, but few are chosen and many are just sheep following along, not knowing that those they are following are goats and wolves.
At the time Moses led the people out of Egypt, even after God miraculously parted the Red Sea, many still mumbled and blamed Moses for their calamity. The time came when Moses went into the mountains to talk with God and was gone many days. The people complained because they got tired of waiting for Moses to return. Divided in spirit, they stirred others to follow them, even though God had performed many miracles, including sparing their first born in the Plague. Instead, they returned back to the gods of Egypt to save them and made a golden calf, of which even Aaron erred in making it for them. What they did not know in their delight to take charge of their own lives, in their own way was that God saw what they did and was angry. So angry he was ready to strike them all down. Moses interceded for them and God agreed to let him handle the people. And so he did and all who did not turn from their ways and stand with the Lord were slain with the sword. All of them!
It’s a fascinating event if you haven’t read the entire book of Exodus, please do so.
Moses Informed of Israel’s Sin
7And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves: 8They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. 9And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people: 10Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.
11And Moses besought the LORD his God, and said, LORD, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand? 12Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people. 13Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever. 14And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.
So just like coming out of Egypt there are complainers and stiff necked people. In the time of Moses, there was a generation punished who never got to enter into the promised land. Will this first harvest be in the same manner? Will the stiff necked and complainers, the doubters and those wanting to return to the way things were, will they reap the blessings of those who kept the faith to go forward and keep on pressing into the kingdom?
Be honest…if this were a movie and you were watching, would you want the ones making the golden calf to reap the land of milk and honey? Or would you cheer like in the film, “The Ten Commandments” when the ground quakes and opens up taking them all into it’s deep abyss?
Well, since we are living our own last days Exodus now, very few want to see this play out in real time. Only in a movie. Yet, that being said, what ought we be doing? The Lord wants all generations to see His joy, not just the next generation. But reality is, a generation divided against itself clinging to the corrupt kingdom they were used to, stiff necked, undermining God and complaining, are not showing themselves deserving of freely receiving all the bells and whistles of the new Kingdom on the earth that is coming.
I’m sure as we press forward together there will be a refining, for even now this is a time of transition, and in this time we ought to be found serving God and our fellow man or be as those that died in the wilderness wanting, complaining and being a burden. We are passing through this phase as well. Those who have eyes to see know we are going through it right now. Those who know the Lord are pressing and looking forward knowing we shall reap if we faint not. They are pressing forward, strengthening one another to prepare ye the way of the Lord to come in all his glory, and to stand when standing is necessary.
For it is written that the Lord shall fight with us as he did in the days of the kings and peace will be ours to usher in. It is coming as it is written. Prepare for the day of the Lord is at hand.
