I HAD A DREAM

It’s quite common while browsing through videos online to stumble upon another “rapture dream” video. They are quite common online. Many have claimed to have them. Many testify of a certain type of cataclysmic event that will take place prior to the rapture. Many have also predicted certain dates as to when the rapture will come. But as time passes those who were in hopes of the predicted date, reality crashed down upon them, the dream wasn’t true and the date failed. This has happened time and time again and you’d suspect that the fooled would come to their biblical senses. But no, they eagerly anticipate the next date of the rapture only to be inflated and deflated with deception.

Fact checkers usually are few and far between since the rapture hype clubs garner more naive believers than skeptics. The one who is serious about his study of the Word of God will not be on any rapture hype train. He will have studied the scriptures and will know full well the true signs that must take place prior to the Lord’s return. Blood red moons, Nibiru fanaticism, Nostradamus paranoia are all adrenaline boosters for the naive and unlearned. It doesn’t take much to bring in a wave of attention and to sky-rocket a video with claims of a rapture dream or the exact date of Christ’s return.

These false claims have been used by many to spur attention for a short period of time then to ultimately to wane the attention when the dates fail to produce a rapture and the prediction fails. Few will concede to their dramaticized, hasty predictions. Others will casually shrug it off without remorse and continue to chalk up another false date for the future. Once again the simple and unlearned will jump to believe such claims only to be disheartened when the date comes and goes without a hitch. Similar to a drug-addict wanting a fix, so the date setter craves the attention. The naive who follow the date-setters are also desiring the adrenaline rush of just one more blood red moon or one more comet fly-by to heighten their senses to the possibility of that being a sign of Christ’s return! Do these people read their bibles? This is a valid question that you may ask.

Why do so many fall for such lies and deception? This, I have often wondered, since we can clearly see the words from Jesus’ own lips, “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father ONLY.” (Matthew 24:36 KJV). It seems to me that these people who fall for such things are similar to the one making the false predictions. They are mostly idle followers or deficient in self-esteem and are not comfortable in their own skin. They need to spawn a false claim to arouse the masses to satisfy their need of recognition and worth. They use the false claim and the deceptive date setting tactic to win over the naive. This empowers them with a false strength that will suddenly deflate once their prediction fails. Once again they are back again to their old-self of deficient character mingled with an evil desire to deceive. I say evil because the devil is a deceiver and he is the evil one. Hence, those who deceive intentionally or with little or no regard of the outcome of such false claims are participating in an evil act and the devils work. Especially since it violates the Holy Word of God.

One who follows Christ need not make any predictions of Christ’s Return. As a matter of biblical fact, we see once again in the first chapter of Acts, prior to Jesus’ ascension the disciples ask: “Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you” (Acts 1:6-8). Jesus is clear that the times and season are in the Father’s power and the Father’s knowledge. If it was of utmost concern for the disciples to know the exact date of such happenings the Lord Jesus would have blatantly told them. But he didn’t. What was of importance was for them to be filled with the Holy Ghost and power from on high.

That is what is needed today. There is a strong need for many to be filled with the Holy Ghost and power from on high so that they might have better discernment. The Spirit of God leads and guides into all Truth. They will then be true witnesses, understand biblical prophecy and know better than to even hint! at making any sort of spurious prediction. They need not do any of those things but to preach the sound Word of God as it is written in the holy scriptures.

Men and Women of God should have a firmness in the faith and have no need to inflate their ego through deceptive tactics. I have little tolerance for date setters. My only concern are for those who are infant in their walk with the Lord and are led to believe a lie. My hope for them is they grow up in God and leave behind such fanciful things. However, I am not so much dismayed for others who are willingly deceived and that have asked for it. Somewhere along the line they have erred from Truth and wandered from the path of understanding. For those who do not draw back unto truth, they shall, as the scriptures saith: “…remain in the congregation of the dead” (Proverbs 21:16).

We shouldn’t feel too sorry for the date setter and the fooled. For the words of the Lord are clear: “With him is strength and wisdom: the deceived and the deceiver are his.” (Job 12:16).

With that being said, let us “keep watch” as the scriptures repeatedly adjure us and not watch for any particular dates.

Amen!

4 &1/2 years ago i had a dream i lived in an apartment building with my husband and i told him im going to the store and i left.
I exited the building to see a mass space of parking lot but, no parking lines there was picnic tables and some people were sitting at the tables others were walking around. It was a bright sunny beautiful day
i bent down to tie my shoe
and i could see the sun reflecting on the ground start to disappear and it became dark
i stood up not sure if i looked up
all of a sudden these white vans pulled up
and demons jumped out and starting grabbing people
they looked like humans
everyone was running in different directions it was chaos
i could see distorted face among the choas of people
i turned to run back to tell my husband
and i was grabbed by a demon
i could only see one in front of me but i could feel multiple sets of hands on my arms
i was laughing at this demon
i wasnt afraid of it
i closed my eyes and said god show the way cause the devils trying to break me down
and i started to float away slowly and upwards
i kept my eyes closed
but i noticed that my eyes lids became bright
when i opened my eyes
i was going through the clouds
i came to a house floating in the clouds
it looked like if you ripped it from the ground
it had a sidewalk and a truck in the driveway
i turned around to see a man extending his hand out to help me onto the sidewalk
i had no idea it was Jesus Christ
i took his hand and i looked him in his eyes
its like he knew everything about me beginning to end
eternity
i asked him if he believed in god and began to talk about god to him as we walked to the truck in the driveway
he just listened to me
cant recall anything he said i dont think he spoke to me
we reached truck
he sat in the truck
he was fidgeting with something
and i woke up

this real encounter prompted me to seek the lord
he woke me up and im grateful
thank you lord
my repentance didnt come right away
it still took some time after
ive been delivered of every demon i had from addiction to resentfullness hatred unforgiveness
depression suicidal actions and thoughts
anxiety pornography masturbation
gossip lies jealousy cursing
i have a new mind and a heart
to anyone reading this
please seek the lord in whatever your going through
repent put your trust in him
and born again of a new mind and new heart
the heart and mind of christ
god bless you all
have a wonderful day
jesus saves

    A situation like yours cannot be validated. While you may have had a dream, those types of dreams may be produced from what we are watching or focusing on in waking life at the time. We can watch movies of end times, read books about end times, or even hear things about the rapture and tribulation via speakers and church gatherings. Those things enter our subconscious mind and get amplified or exaggerated in our sleeping state. Many falsely claim to “see Jesus” in their dreams or in a vision but what lacks is the experience that is viewed in the Bible. Paul was blinded by his vision of Jesus Christ. But these casual dreamers claim to see Jesus without any evidence it’s him! Are they seeing a long-haired fellow? Maybe the resemblance of a European painting of Jesus (?) They assume to see or speak with God, not small “g” as you write within your post and have conversations with Him. These claims are usually fanciful and not supported by the scriptures.

    I have had a vision of the throne of God and the Great Light that is being emitted from such a place. I can tell you that I was not casually standing and talking with Jesus in that vision. I was curled up in the fetal position without the ability to approach the Unapproachable Light. This encounter did not leave me with a taste of Joy but knowledge of my finiteness amidst the Infinite. This encounter was verifiable via the scriptures.

    “Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.” -1 Timothy 6:16.

    It is also interesting to note that at the time (years ago) I was within the church prayer meeting and I was assumably living Holy at the time. I was studying the Bible and felt I was in a “good state” with God. But when we truly encounter the Holy One, our superficiality will surface and NOTHING is hidden. We must Repent, Immediately! You did state you didn’t immediately repent after your encounter with “Jesus.”

    As I stated, there are many fanciful stories and we must not perpetuate that which is produced through us from vain imaginations or false claims. There will be judgment for perpetuating a lie.

    A true encounter with Jesus Christ will make a person adhere to Acts 2:38.

    ————–

    Repent (turn from all sin)

    Be baptized IN Jesus Christ name ONLY (not titles, father son holy spirit) for they are mere titles. All Authority is in the Name. Mt 28:18.

    Receive the Holy Ghost, You will speak in New tongues. Mark 16:17.

    ——————

    This is the true Encounter that is undeniable.

    Amen.

Can you explain why the Son does not know the hour or the day but only the Father

Ismo Vaarala · January 13, 2020 at 1:25 am

I have question concerning why the Son does not know the hour or the day but only the Father, what is your explanation?

Ismo Vaarala · January 15, 2020 at 10:59 pm

Hi, brother Gabe. God bless you much! I enjoy your videos and they are and have been a blessing to me. Can you make a video explaining why some people may not speak in tongues even after asking to be baptized in the Holy spirit? I am new to this and I have repented and been water baptized. I see a big change in my life in comparison to my former self. There are two areas in my life I struggle with and its gluttony and gossip. I work in a place where people are always gossiping and even if I may not gossip I am in the presence of gossiping people. I am also married to a man who is not Christian and he says really crazy things about loving Satan and I tell him about Christ but there are times where my husband and coworkers drain me and I feel so oppressed. Could this be why I may not have been answered? Sorry for the long post. God bless you!

    Thank you for that information. There may be certain things that will block the Spirit of God falling upon a believer. What those things are specifically in your life I would not know. I do know that the Father will give his Spirit to those who ask in sincerity. He will also give his Spirit to those who have a desire to leave the corruptions of the world and follow him. Ultimately it’s God who gives his Spirit to those he desires to and it’s in his timing. Notice the scripture:

    “For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.” Acts 2:39

    Notice the latter part of the scripture “to as many as the LORD our God shall call” This means that it’s God who is doing the calling and it’s God who is giving his Spirit. We can’t do anything to twist God’s arm into giving us his Spirit because it’s a Gift and it’s a promise to those who truly believe. He sees your heart and I can’t do that. He knows what’s going on in your life and your motives etc. I can’t know these things. So you must take time with the Father and in Jesus name persist in asking and cleaning the house (spiritually).

    Amen.
