Have you had a dream or a vision from God?
‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.’ (Acts 2:17 based on Joel 2:28)
Many people, especially those from backgrounds of non-Christian religions, are coming to the LORD through dreams and visions. It happened to me in the early 80’s.
God answered my prayer when I prayed to know the truth, not a religion, but the truth. The LORD appeared in a vision, and he “downloaded” seven things to me:
1. I knew that I was a Christian.
2. I knew Jesus Christ was God.
3. I knew Jesus Christ had created the universe.
4. I knew that Jesus Christ’s death on the cross atoned for all my sins.
5. I knew that I would go to heaven on Christ’s merit’s alone so that I didn’t need to do any religiousity but believe (trust) in Jesus Christ!
6. I knew that the Word of God was inerrant, in it’s original form.
7. I knew the LOVE of God. It enveloped me, in an almost tangible way and I was very aware of His Presence. For weeks, I felt like I was walking on clouds, so elated was I! I had never known such love, such joy, and such freedom! The Truth, Jesus Christ, had set me free!
I prayed to God for the truth and the Father answered me! “… for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 16:17 NKJV) “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.” (John 6:44 NKJV)
When doubts arise, and doubts are from my head, and NOT my spirit, about anything in these SEVEN “DOWNLOADS”, I sing : “And I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able, to keep that which I’ve committed unto Him against that Day.” (2 Timothy 1:12)
Jesus Christ is the TRUTH and gave me the TRUTH of His Word which afterwards I found in the Holy Scriptures! (NKJV for all.)
1. I was a Christian. (I believed in my heart and confession was made with my mouth) “9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10)
2. Jesus Christ was God.
For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)
Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.” (John 8:58)
He [Jesus Christ] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. (Colossians 1:15)
3. Jesus Christ had created the universe.
For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. (Colossians 1:16)
4. Atonement for all my sins
Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation [atonement] for the sins of the people. (Hebrews 2:17)
And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world. (1 John 2:2) BUT you have to trust in Jesus Christ!
5. Go to heaven on Christ’s merit’s alone
1 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified? 2 This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3 Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh? (Galatians 3)
A GREAT BOOK! It can get those nasty “religious demons” out of you, if you hear what it says!
6. The Word of God
The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes; (Psalm 19:8)
18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. (Revelation 22)
7. The LOVE of God
And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. (1 John 4:16)
HAVE YOU HAD A DREAM OR A VISION FROM GOD?
Maybe you have or maybe not.
How can one know? You need to TEST the spirits!
