I had an interesting conversation with a friend today. He told me about a co-worker that claimed God had given him the ability to interpret dreams. He went on to tell me that his friend had been noticably transformed by Christ but I could sense that my friend's "Christian Church" roots made it difficult to embrace his co-worker's supposed "gift". Naturally he asked me what I thought...
And then tonight as I opened my Bible to read and hopefully hear a word from the Lord I just so happened to stumble across Paul's vision in Acts 16:9. In this nocturnal vision Paul saw a Macedonian man calling for him to make the oceanic journey and help him.
My question begs answering. Has God ceased to use dreams and visions to communicate to His people or are we missing something? He did it in the Old Testament. He obviously did it in the New Testmament. He even continued to do so once the believers had been given the gift of the Holy Spirit. So is God still in the business of using dreams and visions or has our Western culture missed something?
Well, it's late and I'm still recovering from yesterday's move. I think I'm ready to hit the sack. Besides, I think I feel a dream coming on.
