Once again I want to use these scriptures: “In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then He openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction.” Please see Job 33:15-16
In your busy life sometimes the best way for the Lord to get your attention is when you are asleep through dreams.
There is a very interesting and vitally important dream that is recorded in God’s Word: And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in the land of Canaan. These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives: and Joseph brought unto his father their evil report. Now Israel (Jacob) loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age; and he made him a coat of many colours. Genesis 37:1-3
We are getting a picture of the youngest son of Israel (Jacob) which was Joseph. From what we can read in these verses tremendous favoritism was made from Jacob to his youngest son and it looks like Jacob did not try to hide it in any way.
Jacob even made sure that Joseph had a special coat which consisted of many colors which had a negative effect on his other 11 brothers because of the immense amount of jealousy that it placed in his other brothers toward Joseph.
A great lesson can be learned by parents as they raise their children and that is not to favor one child over the other, it always causes extreme jealousy and hatred in the hearts of the other siblings. This is exactly what Jacob did with Joseph and because of what Jacob did it made life among that family extremely strained to say the least.
In fact it says in Genesis 37:4 “And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, (Joseph) and could not speak peaceably unto him.”
Then Joseph tells his brothers he had a dream and it says they hated Joseph even more. Genesis 37:5
Joseph then tells all of his brothers how he had a dream and in the dream there were sheaves from the field and they all had sheaves however their sheaves bowed down to Joseph’s sheaves. Genesis 37:7
His brothers replied to Joseph saying to Joseph so you think you will reign over us? That we will be of lower authority than you are? Genesis 37:8
When Joseph told his father about the dream he had his father Jacob was stunned at what Joseph told him. Genesis 37:10-11
Satan has always tried to destroy families as the family was instituted by God in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve but now we have come to a special family that Jacob (Israel) had raised which consisted of 12 different sons.
This family was also very special as this was the family that helped to enlarge the coming Jewish nation of Israel and these 12 sons were the start of the 12 tribes of Israel. (Abraham was the very start of the Jewish nation and is considered the original father of the Jewish nation. Abraham and Sarah had Isaac the promised son then Isaac and Rebekah had Jacob the father of the 12 sons or 12 tribes of Israel.
So satan saw a way to try to destroy the new Jewish nation as it started to grow.
As you probably remember the account of this story is that Joseph was dumped in a pit in the ground and left for dead as they had such hatred for him. However eventually some merchantmen came by and saw Joseph in the pit and brought him out of it and sold Joseph to the Ishmaelite’s and then Joseph was taken to Egypt. Please see Genesis 37: 26-36
Joseph was then sold to Potiphar in Egypt an officer in Pharaoh’s army.
Joseph must have thought many times that maybe he did not get the dream from the Lord right as everything was heading in the wrong direction.
When the Lord gives you a dream it does not mean that everything will always go okay in fact somewhere along the line satan will come against you and try to get you to have doubt about what the Lord has shown you.
Nita and I were attending a Christian concert in another state in the United States and when an intermission came Nita and I headed for the foyer of the meeting hall that we were in.
In the foyer there were all kinds of Christian cd’s and dvd’s, jewelry and Christian items to decorate your home. I came to this particular table where they were some Christian plaques.
My eye almost immediately went to one particular plague and I had never seen those words on a plague before. I wrote those words on a piece of paper as they ministered to me so much and I have kept them in my wallet from that day to now.
The plaque had these words written on it: “What God has shown you in the light, don’t doubt in the dark.”
It is such a simple phrase but did it ever speak to me. (You see the Lord can communicate with you in so many ways).
I have thought about that saying many times since then and what it ministered to me was that what God initially shows you whether it is a dream or vision or any other thing else, when things seem to be going in the wrong direction don’t doubt what the Lord initially told you just because things look like they are falling apart. When things look like everything is going south on you.
I have had dreams where I would wake up and know that dream was from the Lord but then satan would try to bring doubt in my head with trials and tribulations. It can be easy to lose sight of the important things that the Lord speaks into your life.
HANG ON!!! DON’T LET GO!!!
Joseph had to feel this same way, such a wonderful dream for him but through the jealousy of his brothers and them throwing him in a pit in the ground and then being sold to Potiphar his world was in a mess.
One thing you learn in serving the Lord you have to never give up, you must be tenacious, I guess we could call it hard headed in a way because you have to be convinced that what the Lord showed you is still from Him and will come to pass if you don’t give up and throw in the towel.
‘And let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Galatians 6:9
Maybe you are asking what is due season?
Due season is God’s perfect timing for your life. It will probably never be when you think it should be but it will come if you don’t get frustrated and give up. That is satan’s trick, he wants to frustrate you and bring people against you just so the stress level will be increased on you but no matter how hard it is to resist, don’t give into it.
Persevere for the blessing of a dreamer.
Dreams from the Lord have been received from the earliest of times in God’s Word and those dreams or visions are an IOU from God almighty that He fully intends to deliver everything He promised you. Just don’t give up and keep serving the Lord.
Your day of blessing will come, it always comes to men and women of God who dare to be dreamers based on what He has given you.
Joseph had more trouble. While in Potiphar’s house Potiphar’s wife tried to seduce Joseph and even though Joseph would not have anything to do with it and ran off Potiphar believed his wife when she told him that Joseph tried to seduce her and ended up putting Joseph in prison. Genesis 39:1-20
So once again Joseph hit rock bottom, keeping in mind that God had given him a very powerful dream about ruling over people. To say the least Joseph was only experiencing being ruled over by others.
But when you serve the Lord regardless of what things come against you the Lord will always show up on your behalf.
While in prison the Pharaoh had a dream and through many divine events Joseph was released from prison because the Lord gave him an interpretation of the Pharaoh’s dream. The Lord saved the day again for Joseph.
The interpretation of the dream from Joseph that the Lord gave him was that there would be 7 years of plenty as far as food and then 7 years of famine. Genesis 41:1-57
The Pharaoh ended up elevating Joseph to the 2nd in command and had Joseph take charge of all the food for distributing and storage.
After 7 years famine came to the whole area around Egypt and Jacob sent 10 of his sons into Egypt to buy food little did they know at first that they were standing in front of Joseph their brother who his father and brothers had thought was dead.
However the providence of God is marvelous because finally Joseph revealed himself to his brothers and gave food for them and his whole family and had them all come to live in Egypt. There were 70 in that family at that time so the nation of Israel was not destroyed from famine like satan wanted to and Josephs dream came true just as the Lord had showed him in a dream. See Genesis chapters 37-50 to read the entire account.
Dreams and visions are 2 of the many ways that God communicates with us. In talking among Christians I have received the consensus that dreams overall are increasing in their lives.
Peter in his sermon on the Day of Pentecost said that the new dispensation of the Holy Spirit and the Church age would bring in much communication from the Lord to us in the form of dreams and visions.
“And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and daughters shall prophesy and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: and on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.” Acts 2:17-18
When the prophet Joel and Peter mentions that the young men shall see visions and old men shall dream dreams they are not indicating that young nor old men cannot do what the other is receiving being led of the Lord.
The reason for the statement about the young men having visions and old men having dreams is that in these last days we live in there is a drawing together in ministry neither young nor old will be left out all will be blessed in this way.
I encourage you as you enter into a brand new year of 2018 that you will be sensitive to the voice of the Lord as He ministers to you in different ways.
Remember the verses of prophecy in Joel 2 and Acts 2 and EXPECT the Holy Spirit to communicate to you in many ways as the close of this age is upon us and the Rapture of the Church is imminent.
Dreams and visions bring blessings to your life.
Remember, THE BLESSINGS OF A DREAMER.
Joseph’s brothers mocked him as he had told them about his dream and one day as he walked toward them and said: “… Behold, this dreamer cometh” Genesis 37:19
But remember even though you might be mocked for your dreams and visions when they are of the Lord and you continue to serve the Lord and not give up on what the Lord has shown you in a dream or vision or some other way you will inherit the promises, even as Joseph did.
Is it worth it? You bet it is!!!
HAVE A BLESSED NEW YEAR.

We are involved in our ministry on an international level and also will be continuing to minister at churches as we are led to go to these churches in the United States.
On Tuesday October 27, 2015 the Spirit of God gave me a dream about a very large amount of people that I was ministering to. It seemed they were from different parts of the world. As I ministered to them I told them that WORLD WIDE REVIVAL was coming and that it would touch everyone on the face of the earth.
Every time I would say something to this huge crowd of people there would come a shout of excitement from them. But as I looked over to my right there was a man who I got eye contact with and I said this to him as we looked at each other. I told that man, whoever he was, that it was even going to affect him even though he would try to resist it.
And then I woke up.
Nita and I knew then and now that it was a dream from the Spirit of God and that He had called Nita and me to be part of this END TIME WORLD WIDE REVIVAL.
Since then I have ministered on revival in meetings and conversations I have had with other churches around the world.
JESUS SAID, “SAY NOT YE, THERE ARE YET FOUR MONTHS, AND THEM COMETH HARVEST? BEHOLD, I SAY UNTO YOU, LIFT UP YOUR EYES, AND LOOK ON THE FIELDS; FOR THEY ARE WHITE ALREADY TO HARVEST.” JOHN 4:35
Mankind has a tendency to push revival back to sometime in the future.
REVIVAL, REVIVAL, REVIVAL. (NOW, NOW, NOW).
“AS GOD’S PARTNERS, WE BEG YOU NOT TO ACCEPT THIS MARVELOUS GIFT OF GOD’S KINDNESS AND THEN IGNORE IT. FOR GOD SAYS, AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME, I HEARD YOU. ON THE DAY OF SALVATION I HELPED YOU.” 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, NEW LIVING TRANSLATION. INDEED THE “RIGHT TIME” IS NOW. TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.”
We are spreading the Word of God around the world as the Holy Spirit leads us to new areas in an ever increasing amount.
