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,

Four more dreams and visions that have come to pass

(Please note, this is a continuation of the previous post: https://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2012/07/28/the-letters-j-and-h-and-3-visions-that-have-come-true/ . )

Four more dreams/visions my children have had, that have come to pass:

*
 
This dream (it was not a vision,) was the oddest one to have been given. It was like a puzzle that we could not figure out, till it happened.

In this dream, the child went about their daily life, just as they would as if they were awake. But in this dream, they would keep hearing music in the background. The music would vary slightly, but always had the same singer. The music played over and over and over again, till it really grated on the nerves. No matter what the child was doing in this dream, the music could be heard playing. Finally, this child recognized one of the songs being played; it was the song called ‘Thriller’, by Michael Jackson.

Over and over again, the varied music selections of Michael Jackson played, till the child awoke.

That morning, this child came to me, and told me of the dream. The child gave me snatches of some of the songs also heard in the dream, and I was able to name almost every one. We first thought that if there was one song that played more than the others, there might be some kind of warning or message in them, but we could not find any song that stood out more than the others. It was as if every song ever performed by Michael Jackson had been heard in this dream.

So we both shrugged, not sure of what to make of it, and then set it aside.

Till two weeks later, it was announced over the air waves, that Michael Jackson, the king of pop, had died.

Then, just like in the dream, everywhere we went, we heard the various songs of Michael Jackson being played. On the television, through the radio, over the internet, and even when we went out of the house, in waiting rooms, grocery stores, department stores,…wherever we went, we heard his music. After the first few days or so, it started to really grate on the nerves. Just as it had in the dream….

One child had a dream/vision where they sensed that someone famous, a female, someone well liked by the people, was going to die before their time, and the people were posting on line how it was so sad, and such a tragedy. This person was not someone this child had seen before. 

Three days later, Whitney Houston died. Right away, the child recognized the person in the vision, and knew that was the person the vision was referring to…

In this dream, my child seen a family, living somewhere in the rural part of the United States. They had an area with lots of land. (Were they farmers? Not sure.) One day, on their property, the family discovers a small hole, just a foot or two wide. As the days progressed, the hole grew, until it became very wide indeed. This confused the family who owned the land, for there had never been reports of caves (that could form such sinkholes,) under their land.

Then, like an unseen sound wave, more sinkholes began to form in other parts of the country. Here and there, seemingly unrelated, they began to form with more frequency and speed, some even forming overnight. This phenomenon spread all over the world.

Then the child woke up.

A few weeks later, we came across an article, describing a family and their growing sinkhole on their land. In the weeks and months following, more sinkholes formed all over the world, and many were featured in various articles online.

This one was a vision.

Out in space, amongst the stars, hung the earth. It was kept there, somehow, by some kind of unknown force field that had been set up ages before, in the beginning. It glowed with beauty, with its blue waters, tan earth, and white clouds translucently showing from underneath the haze of oxygen that surrounded it. Around it’s center, like a present that had been gift wrapped, lay a thin line, that tied itself closed with a tiny simple bow.
 
It hung there, motionless, giving off the slightest steady hum of sound.

That was all that could be heard from space.

Then the viewpoint shifted, so that the earth was slightly to the right of the view, leaving a large open space beside it.

A large hand, about the size of the earth, (maybe a bit bigger?) came into view from the left, reached out, took a hold of the bow, and gave it one gentle tug, before letting go.

The earth rocked forward and then back, ever so slightly, until it returned to its original placement amongst the stars. The steady hum that the earth gave off, changed ever so slightly in its pitch, before returning to its norm.

Then the large hand entered into view. Once again, it grabbed hold of the string, and gave another tug on it.

The earth wobbled back and forth, seemingly struggling to return to its former place, and the hum increased in its volume, before it returned to normal.

Then the huge hand pulled yet again on the bow, and the earth swayed back and forth, this time with greater movement.

This pattern continued a few more times, until the child awoke from the dream.   

When the child who had this dream came to me and told me about it, chills went down my spine, for I had just gotten done reading parts of Isaiah, Chapter 24.

This child’s eyes grew huge, when I read out loud Isaiah 24:19-20…
“The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.
The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.” (KJV)

A few days later, I ran into an article, describing how the earth’s axis has shifted, after the Japan quake….
