It was the year 2009 when I received the salvation of Jesus Christ. Immediately, God through His prophet informed me that He would be communicating to me through dreams. He further instructed me to be writing those dreams which I do diligently. The dreams began immediately and every night I get at least two. Every time I get a dream, I usually pray against any evil the devil could be devising as featured in the dream and I also thank God for any good events featured and pray that God execute them. In addition, I pray for its interpretation which sometimes I get immediately but other times later. Through the dreams I am able to know what God wants with my life, my family, the church and the nation. Sometimes I am required to give messages to a person ranging from servants of God, colleagues at work, my immediate family members and sometimes leaders of institutions, for example, schools.
Many people dismiss the dreams they get or don’t bother to meditate on them or remember what they dreamt. My experience with the Lord concerning dreams gives me a different perspective. In fact the Word of God is very clear on this mode of divine communication:
28 “And it shall come to pass afterward
That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.
29 And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
(Joel 2:28 NKJV)
From the scripture above, it’s clear that God planned to communicate with the church through various methods because it pleases God to let humans know His mind for we are God’s family.
In the bible, God is featured as speaking to numerous people through dreams such as Abimelech (Genesis 20:3), Jacob( Genesis 28:12), Laban (Genesis 31:24), Joseph,( Genesis 37:5), Pharaoh (Genesis 41:1) etcetera, both in the new and the old testament. In fact, there is a time I saw in a dream, Joseph’s bones flowing through river Nile to Lake Victoria; an indication that just as Joseph instructed his brothers to carry his bones from Egypt to Canaan so that they wouldn’t be buried in captivity, the dream anointing Joseph had is flowing freely and has reached many places, still alive and carrying the great revival it carried during his time, just as God promised through Prophet Joel. Bones, spiritually speaking, continue holding the power of the ministry the person had like in the case of Elisha, whose bones raised a dead person.
20 Then Elisha died, and they buried him. And the raiding bands from Moab invaded the land in the spring of the year. 21 So it was, as they were burying a man, that suddenly they spied a band of raiders; and they put the man in the tomb of Elisha; and when the man was let down and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived and stood on his feet.
(2 King 13:20-21 NKJV).
In short, God has always willed to communicate with man about His intentions or warn humans of an approaching calamity so that they seek His divine intervention or change their ways and live right with Him.
I am God, and there is none like Me,
10 Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things that are not yet done,
(Isaiah 46:9b-10 NKJV)
My articles carry several dreams I have had through the journey of salvation, and even before, and the meaning God has helped me with. The main purpose of this work is to edify the church of Christ, both the believers and those that will later hear the Word of God and believe.
As you read, my prayer is that the Holy Spirit will give you an understanding that will direct you appropriately to His paths of righteousness. God bless you as you read
