"If a dream or vision is from God, the meaning or message will NOT go outside of the jest of the 5 categories and all 66 Books of the Holy Bible. "

Very well said sister! Blessings to you in Jesus name
To someone relying on the illumination of the Holy Spirit to make my living,you amd her are definately outside of heaven.
I recently hung up my landscaping hat and am back to fixing cars.

Many,many times,i walk away from troubleshooting a car and look to heaven.
Many,many times i hear one word,or He points to a part.
People think i am so clever till i tell them it was actually God that did the "thinking"

If yall protocol is followed'then when the 7 thunders reveal their mystery,we can tell them to take a hike.
(Pssst.... It aint in the word.....it and millions of other things aren't there either)

Lets say you are marooned someplace.

Your only listening ability will be verses you know. If God speaks,or a devil speaks a verse ,you have no idea where to turn.since you have no bible.

You think the bible is the only source.
I meet regularly with the one who wrote it.
He is bigger than his book.

Show me "belt,tensioner,wire,switch,tire,bearing,etc"
Both God and the devil know those words.
You actually gonna run and get council,or stop your Holy Ghost mechanic from fixing your car?
You gonna run that "God only speaks the exact words of the bible or those concepts" in his ear while God himself is talking to him???

You guys are duped.
Big time

Ironically i addressed your stalking me in another post. Then i see you still have me in your little sights.


""Mat 7.

He frames dogs and swine as a descecration.

I can tell you exactly what is being said.
God gives you revelation.
Your dear brothers come along and muddy it up. You see that they desecrated a precious thing God showed you or did for you or did in you.

Here is Jesus's picture he painted;

You have company over. You cooked him a huge tbone steak. He takes a bite them gives the entire thing to the dog lying under the table.

You feel violated. Offended.

Thats what we and Jesus want to avoid.
Basically like giving a statavarious violin to a gorilla.""

Go find another target please

@7seasrekeyed, who is Yeshua/Jesus to you?

y'all got a problem lafftur and it is not me

you are trying to run this thread, that you did not start, and have provided no example to the op IMO

instead you are trying to correct everyone with YOUR own experience

not getting involved with your little polling station

actually you seem desperate to gather all the little chicks to yourself rather than Jesus

Psst... the word is "gist"; the essence or core message.

"Jest" is to employ humour; to joke.

As to the gist of your post, I suggest this is a better way to put it: a dream or vision from God will not contradict the message of the Bible. When God spoke to Joseph, Peter, and Paul in visions, none of what He communicated was, at that time, in Scripture. However, in each case, the message was consistent with Scripture.

The message was scripture consistent with the Holy Spirit . Scripture is consistent with scripture... faith to faith The unseen understanding to the same... it has no other equal or peer. We can only serve one master . . . The other our conscience it could lead us astray. And people would see things not there, not out of the bodies.... but rather the lying spirits bringing in a illusion or false vision in .

Three times Jesus said, as it is written ...the one source of Christin faith as the reforming restoring agent in any believer at any time period .

Some people enjoy acting as if they are humble and love to worship angels.They always talk about the visions they have seen. Don’t listen to them when they say you are wrong because you don’t do these things. It is so foolish for them to feel such pride, because it is all based on their own human ideas. They don’t keep themselves under the control of the head. Christ is the head, and the whole body depends on him. Colossains 2: 18-19

I have so many mad dreams. And sometimes they go on for soo long! Last night I had one and I can almost literally recall all of it. Sometimes though they get really weird! And sometime I get really fed up with them as well. Sometimes though I have those prophetic dreams and I see massive giant airships in the sky the size of cities and stuff like that and I think what does it all mean? What are dreams? Why do we have them at all?

To someone relying on the illumination of the Holy Spirit to make my living,you amd her are definately outside of heaven.

Many,many times,i walk away from troubleshooting a car and look to heaven.

If yall protocol is followed'then when the 7 thunders reveal their mystery,we can tell them to take a hike.
(Pssst.... It aint in the word.....it and millions of other things aren't there either)

LOL.. Be careful on how you say you hear... there is another illumining power of the counterfeiter. .Not the illumination of the Holy Spirit.

A glory as a wonderment in the flesh seekers? The illuminated Guru?

How does that work say going to the bathroom troubleshooting the bowel system does he point to the right part? Followed'then when the 7 thunders. (Pssst.... It aint in the word....

Hello everyone.

I have a question concerning dreams and visions. Very often i have visions and dreams but I am new when it comes to discerning where they come from , God, evil or myself.
My question is , does anyone of you know how to discern dreams and visions .
For example today i had a vision of a shadow flying and then for many minutes when i was lying in my bed i felt a cooling air around my body . It was very weird but i had peace .
I want to hear from God but I don’t want to be deceived as i know evil can come as an angel of light.
I would appreciate your wisdom .
God bless you
I prayed about this and was given Proverbs 8:17

Hope this helps, look it up.
When im in bed early in the morning I read the Bible and pray as thats my quiet time. Nobody else disturbs me as they still asleep at that time.

Rev 10:4 When the seven thunders spoke, I was going to write, but I heard a voice from heaven say, "Seal up what the seven thunders have said, and don't write it down."

I think absolutely went offline which I am going to do now too.

OP is short for Opening Post,

Proverbs 24:16
For though a righteous man falls seven times, he will get up, but the wicked will stumble into ruin.

Can also mean original poster ;)

All in the context. There is an internet split on what OP means lol.

I will say I'm 100% certain about angels in dreams and not as certain about demons. Probably because they're not a reliable source.

But my question would be this... If they are not demons why does God's powerful name get rid of them? Nothing else seems to work so it would seem like they're a demon or spirit.

You are on a journey. I've taken the highly skeptical route regarding that sort of thing and decided that any time I "think" I've figured out how things work then "his ways are higher than my ways". For me it's a better place to rest in...

Be careful with angelology. From what I can tell, the angelic realm is mysterious for a reason. It's not for us to know really and they are VERY rarely seen. So if you have too much contact therewith I would be suspicious of the source.

there is nothing in the post to suggest any sort of questioning as to whether or not that person has any difficulty distinguishing

there is no indication of understanding of any sort of biblical comprehension or for that matter salvation

they said God told them to love a demon for pete sakes

please use some discernment

I'm not scolding you. I am trying to protect you from the garbage they wrote
