Discussion in 'Thoughts for Today' started by Jerilee, Mar 21, 2014.

  1. I've always been a "Dreamer" I dream every night. I was wondering if you could help me. Are they signs? Is thinking about dreams bad? They are Good dreams. The only Bad/Nightmares I remember are 2. These dreams started around the day I got saved. I told some friends about it (non-Christian friends) and they said its nothing... just my weird subconscious mind playing with me. That's 20 years ago.

    Recently, my dreams became intense. I talked to my neurologist and he said its one of the side effects of the meds (I dont think so)

    20 years ago, I got saved. Sometime that week I had a dream about my Dad sitting in a chair drinking wine. (My dad doesn't drink) he was sitting down facing a wall of bright white light. I can't really see because the light is too bright. As I got closer I could see my Dad more. I heard a loud echo voice saying COME. I looked at my Dad's face and he was smiling at me. He said, I will die first.

    This happened when I was 8yo. I can't get that out of my mind. I know I was young but for some odd reasons. I wasn't scared. My Dad passed away couple of years ago. The story of his death is in my in testimony.

    Anyway.. 35 days after his death. I had a dream, I was sitting inside a car and around me was buildings on fire. My Dad was knocking to let him in, I knew my dad already died. I didn't open the door. As the fire grew more, he was banging the window. He said: "it's not me".

    I woke up from my dream, I turned of the window a.c. I looked at the time 4:14am (same time my dad woke me up the day he passed away) I stood up because I need to go to the bathroom, I turned on the light and I saw the door handle moving, it was my Dad trying to open the door, knocking. He said: I need to tell you something..

    I told him Dad, I can't. You're dead. I turned around and I saw my body still laying on the bed. I freaked out and ran to my body. I laid down trying to reconnect my body. But when I sit up its still there laying down. I tried again and I prayed. Jesus, help me. I heard knocking, my Dad said listen my child. Listen.

    I woke up, the AC is off. Lights were on my door is locked.

    The next morning I told my brother and his face pales (scared i guess ) He said Uncle is in the hopital. We immediately called a Pastor and that afternoon, my Uncle passed away.

    I do not want to question what just happend but I always wondered.. Is it just me? Do I have a "active imagination"? Should I reject it? Should I listen?
  2. Very interesting dream. I know dreams can be relevant in scripture, but I haven't done a thorough study on it. I'd be interested in hearing from other members on the subject.
  3. I've just asked a question on dreams myself. I'm not sure whether we should read too much into them. They are mentioned in the Bible but i don't know if my dreams and yours are trying to tell us something.
  4. Thats exactly how I feel. I don't know if they are meant for something else. I keep praying for it but it keeps coming back.
  5. One thing i'm not doing though is let it constantly be on my mind. I continue with my day focusing on being in the presence of God. I'm sure if He wants to reveal something to me He will do so in due time. And likewise for you i'm sure.
  6. discount any dream we don't know the meaning of. God is not the author of confusion, nor does a dream end if asking Jesus for help. Nothing God gives us would produce any fear or panic. If the dream ends after calling out for Jesus, then it's Jesus stopping the deception of the enemy. If it was God, then Jesus would have come and shown you the meaning.

  8. I would dream of cats smoking them and dying. Two things I won't have.
  9. It's not constantly in my mind, and they are good. But is it wrong to keep them in your mind whenever you recall them? They are very vivid.
  10. Cats and Cigarettes? Lol. That's odd.
  11. has to be a sign from God that Cats and Cigarettes are bad for you. Heed the sign!!
  12. I don't have fear, panic, scared feeling when I have the dreams. They are very interesting and very vivid. I feel His presence in my dreams but it leaves a puzzle I cannot solve myself. It's like He is telling me to seek someone or tell someone. I do know this, my testimony about my Dad helped thousands of people who were lost. These dreams sometime occur often, and I know that it is a reminder. What is that missing puzzle piece?
  13. When i said
    when i said that i wasn't directly telling you but but saying what i'm not doing. Sometimes dreams stick in my mind too but i'm going to see if anything happens in real life concerning my dream. Mostly they just don't make sense to me.Anyway Tressa replied to a question of mine if you'd like to see it in Faithworks-general discussions.
  14. It's kind of random, but lately I've been having dreams of Osteen eating bacon. What am I to make of this?
  15. I just been reading all about the osteen thing, references to pork and bacon there i see!

  16. Where you been Jerilee? Was you going to a church at the time of this dream?
  17. Joh 16:25 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.

    Jas 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

    Jas 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

    I understand the dreams are vivid, seems like there might be a message in there somewhere. However, If it was God, then the message would be easy to be intreated, Shown plainly.

    God is not hiding stuff from us, but it's just like the devil to make us think we need some vital information. Now if you think about it, if it was your dad, then He is not just going to be trying to tell you something and never get it out.

    However................... Your dad being with God would have no part in confusing you or have a part to get messages from him (Having no more part under the sun) (Ecc 9:6) and be such as Saul who lost his life trying to conjurer up Samuel to get information. God was not happy about that at all. Your Dad would not do that to you or have part of it.

    Your first reaction out of your spirit was correct. You called on Jesus, then it ended.
  18. Love the verses here, especially James.
  19. Thanks for showing showing me that. It was exactly what I was looking for
    @Tressa You did wonders! It finally put everything to rest. I immediately felt peaceful when I read
  20. Oh my! Yes. I was. It was the day the Pastor was leaving..
