A Miracle: The Angel and Their First Customer

In an effort to bring in more money into the household, my husband started up a business. Him and his partners did their research, and knew that there was a great need for the product that they had created. So they were quite confused when, after almost two years, they had not even had one customer. They met and discussed closing the business.

That night, my youngest was woken up in the middle of the night by a very bright light. It shined out from the corner of his room. It waited, and when my son refused to get up, it shined brighter. (He was very tired.) Finally my son realized that it wouldn’t go away and let him sleep, till he got up and gave it some attention.

When he arose, the light dimmed, and he could see an angel of the Lord standing before him.

The angel told him, that the reason his father’s business had no customers, is that there was a pagan man praying to his god to bless this company (he was a friend of one of the partners,) and this man’s prayers were actually a curse upon the company. The angel told him he was to tell us to bind up this man’s prayers, and break their bonds and cords, and claim that they are as nothing.

The angel then said that the company could grow and be a help to us and one day even help out the body of Christ, if we prayed for it. The angel said it needed the prayers of his mother, to help it succeed. (At the time, my husband was doing this on his own, and hadn’t really talked to me about it.) The angel further said that when someone would ask about why the company was so successful, we were to say it was because of Jesus.

My husband was amazed at the message, for he had not told his youngest anything about the company’s problem.

We talked about it and came to an agreement. Then we bound up this man’s prayers in the name of Jesus.

Three days later they got their first customer!

Today, the company is growing, and we give all credit for its success to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Hanukkah is a time to remember the miracles on one’s life. This was one of them.

May you be blessed with miracles in your journey with the Lord,

Discerning Whether These Dreams Are From The Lord

I have had a question posted by a man named Mike, (on the post before this one: https://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2012/08/06/four-more-dreams-and-visions-that-have-come-to-pass/,) that deserves to be shared with all the readers of this blog. (I still plan to post a regular blog entry within the next two days.) 

Mike asks: “how are you determining or ‘discerning’ whether these dreams are from the Lord? just if they come true?”

Many of these dreams and visions have come true, and as this is to be a sign amongst the believers, to discern if this is really a Word coming from the Lord or not, I felt it worthwhile to note. (It was, after all, how our family first noticed them!) However this method of discernment does not work well for those believers who receive the dreams. We have found that much more is needed.  

Jesus, through the Holy Spirit, usually tells us if it is from Him or not. This is usually then confirmed through another believer. The ones given to us from satan always has something about them that doesn’t seem…clean somehow. It is hard to describe. Sometimes we can see or hear the demons in the dream, which tells us that the evil one was behind it. If we sense that it is an attack from satan, we will cast it out in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and ask the Lord to remove the memory of the dream. There have been a few times, when this did not erase the memory of the dream, and the Lord would let us know that there was something we needed to learn from it, usually pertaining to spiritual warfare, that we had to deal with first. Of course, the ones that have the discernable presence of God in them, (for example, seeing God’s Holy angels or hearing the voice of the Lord,) are the easy ones to discern. Often times, the Lord would not let the one who had the dream, forget about it, until it was shared and written down.

 As I’ve said before, some of the last dreams that I’ve posted, (and the next one due in a day or two,) were to show to others the different kinds of dreams our family has experienced. Ours can not be the only family who has been given such gifts of spiritual discernment! There must be others out there who are also experiencing such dreams, and visions, for in Joel 2:28-32 and again in Acts 2:15-21, the scriptures claim that “…It shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions, and also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.” My children have come to believe that they are but amongst the first numbered of those who will be given these gifts, and that these gifts will be given out more and more as the end of days grow nearer. (See also Ephesians 4:11-12.) And since scriptures also state that we “…know in part, and we prophesy in part,” and that “we see through a glass darkly,” (1 Corinthians 13:9 and 12,) we need the body of Christ to help us all function as a whole, just as Romans 12:4-8 and 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 says. For this reason, I have been told to share them and not hold them back, for there may come one who may need the sharing of these experiences. 

Yes, the ones on Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston confused us all on why they were given, (they seemed so worldly,) yet the Lord has used them to convict others in our family, not to simply ignore such odd prophetic dreams, but to share them with each other, and for us to bring them to God in prayer. (You certainly don’t want to ignore God if they were from Him, and you don’t want to ignore it if it was from satan – he needs to be firmly cast out in Jesus name!) However odd these dreams may seem, no evil was sensed in those two dreams. Both the Michael Jackson dream and the Whitney Houston dream simply revealed that something ‘of the world’ was going to have an effect upon the world. To those who are so spiritually sensitive, such an upset amongst the populace can have a disturbing effect on the senses. (For example, the day before 9-11 was EXTREMELY hard on us!) Letting them know before hand what it was, and to not let it affect them, was a blessing. It was also sensed that their death was another small step towards a kind of ‘paradigm shift’ (defined in our family, as a demonic bondage of a large group of people,) towards the ‘N.W.O.’ (How, we do not know.) The Michael Jackson one showed us that some of these dreams and visions can be actual mini-clips of future events. (I had been wondering at that time if they were, or if they were just symbolic.)

The visions of earthquake/tsunami destruction, is teaching my family that besides sharing (whatever it is that we have to share,) the purpose in the dream might also be to pray for those who might be affected by such destruction, like Sarah, another believer, had suggested in her response to my posting.  (Thank you Sarah for your comment!)

The Lord always helps us work through these experiences; I am VERY thankful to Him that He has never left us nor forsaken us. Glory always to Jesus Christ of Nazareth!

May we all remain in Him through these end times,
