coffee date five

there  are cute old ladies playing mah jongg at the table next to me and it makes me so happy *^^* today’s topic: dreams. i have some theories about them and a lot of weird experiences with them. first theory: i have dreams about the last or most important thing i thought about before sleeping. second: i have weirder dreams when i sleep in the early morning (6 am ish) or during the day. third: i have more accurate prophetic dreams when i read more.

prophetic dreams? that’s right. i have dreams about things that happen later – not just the everyday types of things that probably would have happened whether i dreamed them or not, but detailed dreams about things that happen years after i forgot the dream. the most vivid example was when i was in first grade. i had a six-month series of dreams about two people i wouldn’t even meet for another year, and it predicted the next eight years of our relatioships. i know many christians would dismiss something like this as either a vivid imagination (i read seven plus books a week back then, hence the third theory), coincidence, or even demons messing with me. however, i have to believe they come from God because a) they usually involve other people’s actions, which i can’t control and b) when i ignore them or try to prevent them things tend to go poorly.

do you believe God still speaks to us directly through signs? i do because of these and other experiences. however, most christians i know don’t because of hebrews chapter 1: ‘long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed the heir of all things, through whom also He created the world’ (hebrews 1:1-2 esv). i don’t think this means Jesus can’t or won’t use signs, however, just that He will use them more rarely. plus, no one can deny we live in an increasingly secular age, where things like magic, gods, prayer, signs, angels, and demons are considered stories for children.

let me know your thoughts on this and any weird, funny, or all-too-coincidental dreams you’ve had!! xx

    1. that was fast!! well basically that short explanation gets most of it, but it showed the tension and fights we would have, as well as the resolution and forgiveness with one of the people, but in a way that was more an analogy than an exact depiction of what would happen (i.e., none of us ever ended up on my roof lol).
