Some points on dreams, divine messages, prayer, and prophecy are shared, today.  The “Yahoo! Answers” writer using the ID “GisherJohn” (Level 3 with 1,434 points, a member since September 02, 2008) posted the following:

 

Praying seems to bring me more vivid dreams and I get messages, is this normal?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORDIs not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?  Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.  Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith.  Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them:  therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.  And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask thee, saying, What is the burden of the LORD? thou shalt then say unto them, What burden? I will even forsake you, saith the LORD.  And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The burden of the LORD, I will even punish that man and his house.  Thus shall ye say every one to his neighbour, and every one to his brother, What hath the LORD answered? and, What hath the LORD spoken?  And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more:  for every man’s word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.  (Jeremiah 23:  28-36, KJV)

“GisherJohn”, there are many points of understanding I would like to share with you that are important among Christian believers who want to avoid spiritual confusion.  Keeping it brief, however, consider these:

(1.)  One Faith, One Lord, One Baptism.  The operations of GOD to reveal divinity are all directed to specific divine purposes and truths that are now documented in the holy writings.  The sacred writings all have been generated by a single spirit, therefore, legitimate experience of communion with Christ is recognized by a process of spirit we call “discernment”.  Ones spirit content from the eternal makeup of Deity must be the “standard” used to compare and contrast spirit content within finite events, guidance, objects, and other persons.

(2.)  There Is No New Message.  GOD is immutable and unchanging (we say, the same, yesterday, today and tomorrow) yet, interacts with created beings and living creatures whose awareness is continually subject to change, modification and movement that will include multiple levels and objects of focus.  The Word (we say, breath, essence, spirit) is that aspect of the fullness of GOD that may be known as utterance (e.g., commandments, praise, proclamation, promise, prophecy).  GOD has appeared incarnate (we say, in flesh) as Jesus Christ to complete and fulfill major events and requirements for eternal life.

(3.)  Frameworks of Time and Space.  Divine order is established, maintained, and appears as divine law, sacred principles and eternal precepts.  The many operations of GOD to benefit created beings and living creatures upon the earth were initiated before the Creation began.  Included are atonement, birth, death, forgiveness, incarnation, judgment, rebirth, repentance, resurrection, revelation, salvation, and sanctification.

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  Not of Private Interpretation.  Dreams and messages that proceed from GOD are intended for the full body of believers who are in covenant agreement, and so must come under the consideration of other believers entrusted with the same sacred truth.  Dreams that express features for ones individual character and personality emerge from such finite elements as emotions, intellect, logic, philosophy, and science.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to the measure of your faith.
