Dreams

"And in the last days it will be," God says, "That I will pour out my spirit on all people, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy, and your young men will see visions and your old men will dream dreams." Acts 2:17


This is Peter quoting the prophecy from Joel on the day of Pentecost. When the day of Pentecost had fully come the Holy Spirit came sweeping in the upper room like a mighty wind, and filled them. They began to speak with other tongues and become somewhat intoxicated, insomuch that Peter stood up and defended thier actions saying "they weren't drunk with wine," seeing it's only nine in the morning. He said, "This is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel."

I find it interesting that speaking in tongues wasn't mentioned by the prophet Joel even though that is indeed what they did. But Peter none the less said that this is the fulfillment of what was promised and the rest is history. Without a doubt there was revelatory recognition of what was happening; and they did have the promise from Jesus that they would be indued with power after the Holy Spirit had come on them.

None the less the Old Testament prophecy was that this event would be accompanied with prophecy, dreams, and visions. Even though it was promised people often don't associate dreams and visions with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. We think of them as natural occurrences within our own psyche. But God has always and still does, reveal mysteries and prophetic occurrences through these venues.

In the days to come as the Lord's coming approaches you are going to see more and more significant dreams coming on the population of man. Lost and saved alike are going to have significant encounters and input from the heavenly realm and even more so as the day approaches. In the next few writings I want to share some more significance that God is placing on this activity in this season.

As always God bless, shalom, and sweet dreams.

Bro. Rusty
