Points are shared, today, on dreams, faith, incarnation, and salvation.  Much of the experience in sleep that occurs within the mind of mankind is the result of busy-ness and conflict among desires, expectations, feelings and thoughts.  Experiences that connect the mind of man to the mind of Deity may be received correctly as divine guidance or prophecy as well as revelation.  Just as faith that establishes divine truth may result in miracles (we say, sacred events), dreams may result in genuine sacred knowledge.  Even so, in the same way miracles do not always result in faith, and instead may foster doubt, fear and spiritual confusion, dreams are only effective as a divine tool where there is faith and other inseparable aspects of divine person (we say, the imparted spirit of Christ).  The fighter at “Yahoo!

What if god appear in your dreams?

He prove to you that he can really rise the dead

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?  Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king;  But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;  As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter:  and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass.  But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.  (Daniel 2:  26-30, KJV)

“Mary vianney”, here are a few points often shared among Christian believers about dreams and how GOD appears to mankind:

(1.)  Because they can be very vivid and seem to be real,  dreams that result from operations of a person’s appetite, emotions, senses, and thoughts may have great power and be easily confused with sacred events (e.g., answers to prayer, miracles, relief, rest, trances, visions) that result by operations of spirit matter (e.g., faith, holiness, longsuffering, love, truth, wrath against sin). 

(2.)  GOD has been continually making known (we say, revealing) the active presence, character, nature, and process of divinity to created beings and living creatures using a broad range of sacred tools.  Included are abundance, birth, death, covenant, family, inheritance, judgment, law, nation, rebirth, and sacrifice.  GOD who is a spirit, and must be worshiped in spirit and truth, is understood as repeatedly using three aspects of being (we say, person); and has even appeared upon the earth using the form of flesh and blood (we say, incarnation) in the person of Jesus Christ.

(3.)  Because dreams sent by GOD often introduce and use images that are strange, symbolic, suggestive and unfamiliar, godly dreams also require godly explanation and interpretation.  Saying this another way:  Divine dreams will be in agreement with fixed sacred standards such as previous commandments and divine proclamations, the promises of GOD, prophecy, and eternal purpose.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually understood.  (For example, (4.)  Sin influences the living in heaven and upon earth by dominating individual awareness and self-will.  Yet, sin has not been created by GOD, and contains no spirit material.  Sin can not be destroyed or eliminated like intellectual, material or social things; thus, the divine operations for salvation provide divine tools to limit, recognize and resist sin.  More than feelings, logic, mind, reason and science, opposing sin requires a union of flesh and spirit that only may occur through the ministry of GOD in Christ.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
