God’s Grace Saving Grace
  • God Speaks in Dreams
    God is not limited in the ways He communicates with His people. Job 33:14-18 says that God speaks and man does not perceive it, in a dream or a night vision, He opens the ears of men and seals their instruction. Dreams and visions are as important as words of prophecy and words of knowledge […]

Song, You are the one the righteous one, the righteous one,
great is your Name in all thee earth,
Heaven declares you are glorious, glorious,
Great is your Name in all thee earth.

We worship the King, because He first loved us,
He redeemed us and brought us into the light,
joined us to the family of God that we could be one people
with the children of God. To declare his mighty works,
and His great love for us.
God will go to any length to bring you out of darkness,
He is not limited, He is not tempted, He is not hindered by the forces of this world.
Great is your Name in all the earth.

That at the Name of Jesus, every knee must bow,
every chain must be broken, to set the captives free. He who the Son has made free, is free indeed,
no going back, freedom bring you onto a new path with a new destiny with Christ our Lord in our lives.

Praise Him for his goodness,

He is my peace and my refuge, a place of safety.

The glory of the risen Christ is shinning, being revealed to the world through the face and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. Apple iPhone is talking about FaceTime, yes we need to take time seeking the face of Jesus Christ, God’s Son to be revealed to us.

The light of Christ is shinning and far exceeds the power of darkness and removes the veil that blinds the hearts and minds of mankind. God is using the glory of the risen Christ to reveal the manifest power and glory of God. Make it known to us in this world through an intimate knowledge and relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. The devil will try to deceive the natural man, but the power of God creates within us a new man, a born again man that passes through the veil that blinds the natural man. That enables us to step into this supernatural, spirit realm where God dwells.

Lord opens our eyes to experience this new realm of the spirit life, by accepting Jesus into our hearts. By believing that He truely is the Son of God that has come with power and authority from the Father. That he died to pay the price for our sins and rose again from the dead. If you believe this you are born again and your eyes have been open that you may see into the Kingdom of God and learn of Him by the power and presence of His Holy Spirit. His Spirit working in us will make know to us the life of Christ that now lives and dwells in us. The Hope of Glory.

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 2Cor 4:4-6

But God in His mercy is allowing the light of the Gospel to shine forth through the power of His Spirit to reveal the life and nature of His Son Jesus Christ. And as many as received Him, believe in Him, gave He them power to become the Sons of God.

It’s not by my power or wisdom that you are saved, but by the grace and mercy of our Lord. He is revealing the Christ which now lives in us, which brings the reflection and image of Christ alive in us. We are not container, bearers of the manifested presence of God that dwells in us, which is our living Hope. Making known unto mankind the kindness and gentleness of the Lord our God, that He is bestowing, granting us this grace. That we may know Him and the power of His resurrection.

Jesus said that I am the resurrection and the life. He that believeth in me shall not perish, but have everlasting life. This life can be so real, revealed in your heart. That you too, may know Him and see the spiritual truth that “He is Alive” and is your resurrection, your salvation your Hope of Glory. He is everything that I need.

Living life in the Spirit,

Peter Kelleher  Christian Evangelist, Prophetic Word, Life Coach

Here now, the Five Reasons:
1. Donald Trump’s Campaign Rallies—nothing can top a Trump Rally. I’ve been to both a Trump and Clinton Rally and they are night-and-day different. 

Hillary’s event was in a gymnasium, poorly attended, had an audience that needed constant prodding. At the last minute, a bunch of unrelated crowd-fillers were scooted in awkwardly and trained up to cheer when cued. There were no protesters, as if nobody has anything to protest Hillary about. And Hillary’s speech was wooden, shrill and without passion.

Compare this to the organized, excited buzz of a Trump Rally. Over 4500 people filling a 4000-capacity nightclub. with thousands of disappointed yet still excited Trumpers outside who couldn’t get in but waiting anyway. 

Inside Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Women, Gays (many holding ‘Blanks’ for Trump signs, that’s how I knew), pregnant women and lots of children, running around and allowed to have fun and play. It was a safe environment with people who exhibited manners and seemed to make room for each other.

The press at the event I attended reported “thousands of anti-Trump protesters.” I went to investigate. What I saw were a very motley crew of approximately 75 miscreants, uncoordinated and unable to intelligently describe what was wrong with Trump or what their gripes were. A reasonable conversation was impossible. Turns out, these poor souls were bused in, given $20 and a sandwich for their trouble. Or to start trouble. Pathetic. 

It’s the first event I’ve been to in my life that started with The National Anthem, a benediction prayer AND The Pledge of Allegiance. (A commentary on the current state of our country is the fact that I hadn’t spoken the Pledge since I was a grade-schooler—a horrible situation.) There were American flags festooned all over the place, unlike the first night of the DNC. 

And when Donald Trump spoke, people listened. When people protested, he asked them to leave until the audience took that upon themselves, chanting “Trump, Trump. Trump” until the interrupters left on their own, gladly.

All in all, Trump has created something really special with his rallies. Something no other political candidate has replicated ever, because Trump’s one of a kind. The difference in his rallies is one of the things that will get him elected.

2. Trump is FUNNY; People Like Funny. And, Hillary is Anything But—Who would you rather listen to? Follow? Someone funny or someone shrill? I know my answer. I can’t stand Hillary’s nasty, high-pitched tones and absurd paranoia. She’s got a congenital deficiency in the Truth Hormone and is currently on public trial on a number of atrocities. So that’s really not funny. 

3. The Polls Are Not To Be Trusted—Who conducts these polls anyway? The aforementioned news media, generally in partnership with an academic institution of some kind. Oh, there’s another Liberal audience that can never vote anything but Democratic: Academics. It’s no wonder that skewed results are plastered all over our TVs, newspapers and Internet publications when polls are conducted. This is the news media’s main, centralized, not-too-secret secret sauce that let’s them cheer-lead their candidates onto undeserved victory. The Media has long thought they have Americans’ minds in the bag—that they can make anything happen by controlling what and how Americans think including get their candidate elected.

I can’t stand Hillary’s nasty, high-pitched tones and absurd paranoia. She’s got a congenital deficiency in the Truth Hormone and is currently on public trial on a number of atrocities. So that’s really not funny. 

On the other hand, we have Trump who makes me laugh about every other paragraph of his speeches. This is most obvious at his rallies when he tells a protester to “go home to Mommy” or “You’re so politically correct, you’re a real beauty.” Trump crowds wait for his humor and react with glee.

This Trump Humor will serve him well when the debates begin. Hillary will have only accusations, meanness and unsupported claims to hurl at Trump. In the meantime, Trump will castigate Hillary with humor, cheerfulness and fun-poking which she cannot counter. 

Trump may be behind in the polls now, but just Like Ronald Reagan versus Walter Mondale with his elegant yet campaign-piercing “I want you to know that also I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent’s youth and inexperience” lightning-bolt, Trump is filled with these kinds of retorts that will eviscerate Hillary in the debate. There’s no way for her to prepare. Nobody can fill-in for Trump during her mock preparatory debates. She’s done once the debates start. Trump wins every one of the three without even breaking a sweat.

Another good yardstick is likability. People I know who have met Trump (including myself) seem to like him, some immensely. Hillary not so much. People don’t respond to Hillary’s known backstage personality because she’s cold, calculating and absolutely ruthless. I reference the book, “Unlikable.”

The Media has long thought they have Americans’ minds in the bag—that they can make anything happen by controlling what and how Americans think including get their candidate elected.

It’s about time this media manipulation, ‘medipulation’ I’ll call it, stops.

The one possible landmine of this spinning of the polls by a Liberal media, academics and politicians is that they forget that by putting their candidate ahead when they’re really not, they run the risk of their voters staying home and consequently, giving the election to the Conservative candidate they tried to bamboozle. Trump voters are also staying hidden; they don’t want to deal with the Liberals’ nastiness so they keep to themselves until Election Day. Wait and see how many people come out for Trump; it may be shocking.  

I am waiting for this and hope it happens in November. 

4. Trump’s Spent Virtually Nothing; Hillary Over $100 Million—Here we are in mid to late August and Trump is staying close to Clinton having spent little to defeat 16 other hopeful Republican nominees, get through his national convention with the nomination and finally, begin the general election campaign. Most honest political insiders and campaign people are astonished at this. It’s never been done before. So let’s not forget it.

Simultaneously, Clinton has spent a hundred million or more (her campaign won’t release specifics so you can be sure it’s a boatload) just getting past a Socialist curmudgeon, her convention and the start of the Damning of Trump.

As the news media has ignored how much Hillary is spending, they have a morbid fascination with how much Trump has to spend. Look, Donald Trump is the only candidate in American history who can write himself a $250 million check just to get things started; out of petty cash. This ability is not only sui generis but also bespeaks another underlying Trump advantage: He doesn’t depend on outside patrons, lobbyists, corporations and Wall Street, as Hillary clearly does. 

5. Hillary’s Future is VERY Uncertain; an ‘October Surprise?’—Definitely. Hillary’s lies simply must catch up to her eventually. There’s a simple truth that we all learn as children: that liars always get their just desserts. Even Hillary’s base doesn’t trust her. Her party doesn’t trust her. President Obama doesn’t trust her. She, along with her disgraced husband, are unconvincing truth-tellers. They just cannot be believed about anything.

So this leaves Hillary only one competitive option: Call Donald Trump a liar at every turn. Say he’s dangerous. Say he can’t be trusted with the nuclear codes. Say he doesn’t have the right “temperament.” And hope all that sticks.

If we are to believe Julian Assange, there will be an ‘October Surprise.’ The drip, drip, drip of the dual investigations on her email server and the Clinton Global Initiative have taken their toll on her and her campaign and will yield more damaging info in the run-up to the election. 

The dreadful Iran Deal and her involvement in the early days of its strategic evolution with also continue to hurt her.

The Democratic Party, Liberal media and Hillary’s own supporters are scared. They try to hide it but they can’t. There’s good reason for their worries.

If I’m Donald Trump and his campaign, I’d much rather have my opponents all worried about me than the reverse. Psychologically, it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy to be afraid before going into battle. Ask a Spartan.  

So in conclusion, I don’t believe that Hillary Clinton, with all her baggage packed in steamer trunks, can beat Donald Trump. 

No matter how much the Liberal news media presses and supports her against one of their central reason for existing—to keep elected officials honest through oversight—people won;t believe them. There’s no media oversight of Hillary Clinton. While Donald Trump is constantly scrutinized with a magnifying glass by a rabidly Leftist media.

I could be wrong. 

I’ve been wrong so many times before.

But I don’t think I’m wrong here and now.

Inside Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Women, Gays (many holding ‘Blanks’ for Trump signs, that’s how I knew), pregnant women and lots of children, running around and allowed to have fun and play. It was a safe environment with people who exhibited manners and seemed to make room for each other.

The press at the event I attended reported “thousands of anti-Trump protesters.” I went to investigate. What I saw were a very motley crew of approximately 75 miscreants, uncoordinated and unable to intelligently describe what was wrong with Trump or what their gripes were. A reasonable conversation was impossible. Turns out, these poor souls were bused in, given $20 and a sandwich for their trouble. Or to start trouble. Pathetic.

The Media has long thought they have Americans’ minds in the bag—that they can make anything happen by controlling what and how Americans think including get their candidate elected.

It’s about time this media manipulation, ‘medipulation’ I’ll call it, stops.

The one possible landmine of this spinning of the polls by a Liberal media, academics and politicians is that they forget that by putting their candidate ahead when they’re really not, they run the risk of their voters staying home and consequently, giving the election to the Conservative candidate they tried to bamboozle. Trump voters are also staying hidden; they don’t want to deal with the Liberals’ nastiness so they keep to themselves until Election Day. Wait and see how many people come out for Trump; it may be shocking.  

I am waiting for this and hope it happens in November. 

4. Trump’s Spent Virtually Nothing; Hillary Over $100 Million—Here we are in mid to late August and Trump is staying close to Clinton having spent little to defeat 16 other hopeful Republican nominees, get through his national convention with the nomination and finally, begin the general election campaign. Most honest political insiders and campaign people are astonished at this. It’s never been done before. So let’s not forget it.

Simultaneously, Clinton has spent a hundred million or more (her campaign won’t release specifics so you can be sure it’s a boatload) just getting past a Socialist curmudgeon, her convention and the start of the Damning of Trump. 

2. Trump is FUNNY; People Like Funny. And, Hillary is Anything But—Who would you rather listen to? Follow? Someone funny or someone shrill? I know my answer. I can’t stand Hillary’s nasty, high-pitched tones and absurd paranoia. She’s got a congenital deficiency in the Truth Hormone and is currently on public trial on a number of atrocities. So that’s really not funny. 

On the other hand, we have Trump who makes me laugh about every other paragraph of his speeches. This is most obvious at his rallies when he tells a protester to “go home to Mommy” or “You’re so politically correct, you’re a real beauty.” Trump crowds wait for his humor and react with glee.

This Trump Humor will serve him well when the debates begin. Hillary will have only accusations, meanness and unsupported claims to hurl at Trump. In the meantime, Trump will castigate Hillary with humor, cheerfulness and fun-poking which she cannot counter. 

Trump may be behind in the polls now, but just Like Ronald Reagan versus Walter Mondale with his elegant yet campaign-piercing “I want you to know that also I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent’s youth and inexperience” lightning-bolt, Trump is filled with these kinds of retorts that will eviscerate Hillary in the debate. There’s no way for her to prepare. Nobody can fill-in for Trump during her mock preparatory debates. She’s done once the debates start. Trump wins every one of the three without even breaking a sweat.

Another good yardstick is likability. People I know who have met Trump (including myself) seem to like him, some immensely. Hillary not so much. People don’t respond to Hillary’s known backstage personality because she’s cold, calculating and absolutely ruthless. I reference the book, “Unlikable.”

3. The Polls Are Not To Be Trusted—Who conducts these polls anyway? The aforementioned news media, generally in partnership with an academic institution of some kind. Oh, there’s another Liberal audience that can never vote anything but Democratic: Academics. It’s no wonder that skewed results are plastered all over our TVs, newspapers and Internet publications when polls are conducted. This is the news media’s main, centralized, not-too-secret secret sauce that let’s them cheer-lead their candidates onto undeserved victory.

As the news media has ignored how much Hillary is spending, they have a morbid fascination with how much Trump has to spend. Look, Donald Trump is the only candidate in American history who can write himself a $250 million check just to get things started; out of petty cash. This ability is not only sui generis but also bespeaks another underlying Trump advantage: He doesn’t depend on outside patrons, lobbyists, corporations and Wall Street, as Hillary clearly does. 

5. Hillary’s Future is VERY Uncertain; an ‘October Surprise?’—Definitely. Hillary’s lies simply must catch up to her eventually. There’s a simple truth that we all learn as children: that liars always get their just desserts. Even Hillary’s base doesn’t trust her. Her party doesn’t trust her. President Obama doesn’t trust her. She, along with her disgraced husband, are unconvincing truth-tellers. They just cannot be believed about anything.

So this leaves Hillary only one competitive option: Call Donald Trump a liar at every turn. Say he’s dangerous. Say he can’t be trusted with the nuclear codes. Say he doesn’t have the right “temperament.” And hope all that sticks.

If we are to believe Julian Assange, there will be an ‘October Surprise.’ The drip, drip, drip of the dual investigations on her email server and the Clinton Global Initiative have taken their toll on her and her campaign and will yield more damaging info in the run-up to the election. 

The dreadful Iran Deal and her involvement in the early days of its strategic evolution with also continue to hurt her.

The Democratic Party, Liberal media and Hillary’s own supporters are scared. They try to hide it but they can’t. There’s good reason for their worries.

If I’m Donald Trump and his campaign, I’d much rather have my opponents all worried about me than the reverse. Psychologically, it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy to be afraid before going into battle. Ask a Spartan.  

So in conclusion, I don’t believe that Hillary Clinton, with all her baggage packed in steamer trunks, can beat Donald Trump. 

No matter how much the Liberal news media presses and supports her against one of their central reason for existing—to keep elected officials honest through oversight—people won;t believe them. There’s no media oversight of Hillary Clinton. While Donald Trump is constantly scrutinized with a magnifying glass by a rabidly Leftist media.

I could be wrong. 

I’ve been wrong so many times before.

But I don’t think I’m wrong here and now.

 Christians need to know who the enemy is and who is serving the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob… The Tree of Life. CHERYL MILLS GRANTED IMMUNITY

The West and Radical Islam

By Jay Sekulow7 days ago

The United States of America is the greatest country on the face of the earth.

But we often fail to realize just how different our way of life and thinking is from the billions of people in other parts of the world. It’s why far too many of our leaders refuse to acknowledge the threat of radical Islamic jihad and call it out by name. It’s why far too many people wrongly think about radical Islamic terrorists as simply the heirs to the long line of freedom-hating enemies of the West. It’s why radical jihadists continue to win and advance, leaving America’s leaders without an effective strategy and wondering what to do.

Without realizing what truly makes America exceptional and why radical Islamists and many other Muslims hate us, we will continue to lose this war.

And let there be no doubt, we are at war. They are at war with us now and will continue to be long into the future, until we are destroyed. The only thing we accomplish by denying this reality is our own demise.

What makes America great is our liberty, our freedom, our rule of law, our diversity, and our Constitution. In other words, our values. Radical Islamists hate and seek to destroy these things because they have different values. Our cultural identities and philosophical views are diametrically opposed.

As the Western world continues to confront radical Islam, a debate is taking place in university lecture halls, on social media, in the halls of power, and on the news. This debate centers on one question: is Islam a peaceful religion? After 9/11, President

George W. Bush referred to Islam as “a religion of peace.” President Obama has reiterated time and time again that Islam teaches peace.

The debate about the definition of “true Islam” is interesting. But this debate undergirds the West’s understanding of terrorism, Islam superiority, the pursuit of Sharia, and the emergence of the unholy alliance. Some point to passages in the Quran about peace, while others point to passages that seem to encourage violence and have spurred terrorists to kill anyone who disagrees with them and destroy entire civilizations—churches, art museums, architecture, and more.

It is true that the Quran contains multiple verses that command peace—as well as violence. The majority of Muslims do not engage in violent, forcible imposition of Sharia on others, justifying their position based on verses in the Quran that teach peace and kindness.

However, significant parts of Islam’s history are characterized by wars of Islamic conquest and forcible imposition of Islam over nonbelievers on the basis of Quranic teaching of jihad to establish Sharia law.

Today, ISIS (the Islamic State) and other radical Islamic terrorists point to sections of the Quran and Islamic history not only to justify their jihad and terror but also to insist that Allah requires it of them.

It’s this history that we must reckon with in order to truly understand the enemy we face and how to defeat it.

The Middle East is an often complex weave of unlikely alliances, but their confluence today lead to new dangers – dangers we must look to history to understand and defeat. In my upcoming new book (due out September 20th), “Unholy Alliance: The Agenda Iran, Russia, and Jihadists Share for Conquering the World,” I uncover some of these dangerous trends and detail solutions that our nation’s leaders must take. This continues the in-depth analysis of radical Islam we began in #1 New York Times Bestseller “Rise of ISIS: A Threat We Can’t Ignore.”

This is excerpted and adapted from #1 NY Times Bestselling author Jay Sekulow’s newest book, “Unholy Alliance: The Agenda Iran, Russia, and Jihadists Share for Conquering the World.”

These 7 Things Will Create Swift Change In Your Life…1 Change What You Have Decided To Magnify. Only you can decide what to magnify in your life…in your Mind…in your vocabulary…and in your conversations. God gave us a Mind to decide how big and small everything in our life would be.

2 Put God First, Daily. Let God be the first to influence your day. It is called The Law of The First. What I Do First Determines What God Will Do Second. The Scripture instructs us “…seek ye first The Kingdom of God,” (Matthew 6:33). Seeking God first every day has truly changed my life.

3 Create Your Atmosphere With Music. What You Hear Determines What You Feel. Music decides your mood. Music controls your environment. Music ushers in the Presence of God. Power is always accompanied by sound. I can turn on a song and instantly…the atmosphere changes. What happens in your Mind decides what you feel. Your surroundings are vital to your mood. You must control the atmosphere around you or it will control you.

4 Lower Your Goals. Having too many goals will weaken your passion. Feelings of discouragement will enter when you consistently fail to achieve them. Prioritize your goals. Focus on your top 3 or 4. Set achievable goals.

Question: “How does God use dreams and visions in the Bible today?”

Answer: God used dreams and visions (visions are “waking dreams”; see Numbers 24:4) several times in the Bible to communicate with people. Visions seem to have been common enough that their lack was sorely noted. An absence of visions was due at times to a dearth of prophets (1 Samuel 3:1) and other times due to the disobedience of God’s people (1 Samuel 28:6).

God wants to reveal his desires and plans for your life, sometimes He wants to give us direction, warn us of coming events. Some dreams are to make you aware your true inner desires and feelings, not masked by your own mental filters. If we have a sincere desire to hear from God and to know his ways He speaks to us through his Word. But many people especially those that do not know God personally He speaks to them through Dreams and Visions. Below are several examples of How God speaks to his people to warn them and give them directions.

Old Testament Dreams and Visions
God used visions in the Old Testament to reveal His plan, to further His plan, and to put His people in places of influence.

Abraham (Genesis 15:1): God used a vision to restate the Abrahamic Covenant, reminding Abram that he would have a son and be the father of many nations.

Abimelech (Genesis 20:1-7): Abraham’s wife, Sarah, was beautiful—so beautiful that when Abraham came into a new area he occasionally feared that the local ruler would kill him and take Sarah for himself. Abraham told Abimelech king of Gerar that Sarah was his sister (she was his half-sister). Abimelech took Sarah into his harem, but God sent him a dream telling him not to touch Sarah because she was Abraham’s wife. The king returned Sarah to her husband the next morning; the dream had protected Sarah and safeguarded God’s plan for Sarah to be the mother of His chosen people.

Jacob (Genesis 28:10-17): Jacob, with his mother’s help, stole Esau’s firstborn inheritance. Jacob then fled Esau’s anger, and on his journey he had his famous dream of a ladder reaching to heaven on which angels ascended and descended. In this dream Jacob received God’s promise that Abraham’s blessing would be carried on through him.

Joseph (Genesis 37:1-11): Joseph is one of the most famous dreamers, and one of the most famous dream-interpreters, in the Bible. His first recorded dreams are found in Genesis 37. They showed through easily deciphered symbols that Joseph’s family would one day bow to him in respect. His brothers didn’t appreciate the dream and in their hatred sold Joseph into slavery. Eventually, Joseph ended up in prison in Egypt.

Pharaoh’s cupbearer and baker (Genesis 40): While in prison Joseph interpreted some dreams of Pharaoh’s cupbearer and baker. With God’s guidance, he explained that the cupbearer would return to Pharaoh’s service, but the baker would be killed.

Pharaoh (Genesis 41): Two years later, Pharaoh himself had a dream which Joseph interpreted. God’s purpose was to raise Joseph to second-in-command over Egypt and to save the Egyptians and the Israelites from a horrible famine.

Samuel (1 Samuel 3): Samuel had his first vision as a young boy. God told him that judgment was coming upon the sons of Samuel’s mentor, Eli. The young Samuel was faithful to relay the information, and God continued to speak to Samuel through the rest of his life.

The Midianite and Amalekite armies (Judges 7:12-15): The pagan enemies of Israel had a divinely inspired dream. God told Gideon to sneak into the enemy camp at night, and there in the outposts of the camp, Gideon overheard an enemy soldier relate a dream he had just had. The interpretation, from another enemy soldier, mentioned Gideon by name and predicted that Israel would win the battle. Gideon was greatly encouraged by this revelation.

Solomon (1 Kings 3:5): It was in a dream that God gave Solomon the famous offer: “Ask what you wish Me to give you.” Solomon chose wisdom.

Daniel (Daniel 2; 4): As He had done for Joseph, God placed Daniel in a position of power and influence by allowing him to interpret a foreign ruler’s dream. This is consistent with God’s propensity to use miracles to identify His messengers. Daniel himself had many dreams and visions, mostly related to future kingdoms of the world and the nation of Israel.

New Testament Dreams and Visions
Visions in the New Testament also served to provide information that was unavailable elsewhere. Specifically, God used visions and dreams to identify Jesus and to establish His church.

Zacharias (Luke 1:5-23): God used a vision to tell Zacharias, an old priest, that he would soon have an important son. Not long after, Zacharias and his wife, Elizabeth, had John the Baptist.

Joseph (Matthew 1:20; 2:13): Joseph would have divorced Mary when he found out she was pregnant, but God sent an angel to him in a dream, convincing him that the pregnancy was of God. Joseph went ahead with the marriage. After Jesus was born, God sent two more dreams, one to tell Joseph to take his family to Egypt so Herod could not kill Jesus and another to tell him Herod was dead and that he could return home.

Pilate’s wife (Matthew 27:19): During Jesus’ trial, Pilate’s wife sent an urgent message to the governor encouraging him to free Jesus. Her message was prompted by a dream she had—a nightmare, really—that convinced her that Jesus was innocent and that Pilate should have nothing to do with His case.

Ananias (Acts 9:10): It would have taken nothing less than a vision from God to convince Ananias, a Christian in Damascus, to visit Paul, the persecutor of Christians. But because Ananias was obedient to God’s leading, Paul regained his sight and found the truth about those he was trying to kill.

Cornelius (Acts 10:1-6): God spoke to an Italian centurion named Cornelius who feared the God of the Jews. In his vision, Cornelius saw an angel who told him where to find Simon Peter and to send for him and listen to his message. Cornelius obeyed the vision, Peter came and preached, and Cornelius and his household full of Gentiles were saved by the grace of God.

Peter (Acts 10:9-15): While Peter was praying on the rooftop of a house in Joppa, God gave him a vision of animals lowered in something like a sheet. A voice from heaven told Peter to kill the animals (some of which were unclean) and eat them. The vision served to show that Christians are not bound by kosher law and that God had pronounced Gentiles “clean”; that is, heaven is open to all who follow Jesus.

Paul: Paul had several visions in his missionary career. One sent him to preach in Macedonia (Acts 16:9-10). Another encouraged him to keep preaching in Corinth (Acts 18:9-11). God also gave him a vision of heaven (2 Corinthians 12:1-6).

John (Revelation): Nearly the entire book of Revelation is a vision John had while exiled on the island of Patmos. John’s vision explains in more detail some of the events that God had shown Daniel.

Today’s Dreams and Visions
With the completion of the Bible, God does not have to use dreams and visions as much as He did before. That is not to say that He cannot or does not; God can communicate with us however He chooses. But when we have a decision to make, our first stop should always be the Bible, not a dream.

My Vision is Restored in Christ

As I look to Jesus I come to know who I am and I find Christ alive, living in me my hope of glory. It’s not my life, my life is not based on mine own limitations, my weakness, but my life is founded in, formed in the strength and power of Jesus Christ.

As He is in the world so am I, for we are recreated in His image and likeness. We are a new creation in Christ behold all things become new. New opportunities, new expectations, new relationship with God. No longer under condemnation, but accepted in the beloved, I am saved from sin conciousness and made alive in Christ, “I am the righteousness of God” in Christ Jesus. I have a new ability to walk with God, to please God, to be his son, adopted, grafted into the family, sonship of God. I find with this new life a new identity, new desires, a new way of thinking. I begin to see and understand the things of God, His Word becomes alive. It’s as though God my Father is speaking directly to me through His Word. Showing me what I should do, what I should say. I see myself doing the things that the Father shows me by His Holy Spirit.

I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; that in every thing ye are enriched by Him.” And we may remark that this confidence in the faithfulness of God ran along side by side, and to the extent of His own calling and purpose about them, “who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Moreover, it is added, “God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord” – thus establishing and completing the entire circle of their Christian privileges and final blessing, as well as confirming them by the assurance of “grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ” as their present portion. God in Christ working out our salvation…
