Iím finishing the topic of visions with 4 more points and a little testimony. I encourage everyone who reads this part to take advantage and read all 4 parts to get the full scope of visions and the 2 parts of dreams to complement the study of how God communicates with us through dreams and visions.
Iím going to say this conservatively everyone who read this material as I gave it out in paper handouts reported that God began manifesting dreams and visions in their personal lives.
Iím happy to hear praise reports like that because I know that I did not bury my talent and in heaven I will be rewarded. So take this info to heart and trust that God will ultimately speak to you thru dreams and visions.
Further revelation after a vision
1. We may need further revelation after we receive a vision from God;
2. Peter needed further revelation after his symbolic vision telling him to kill and eat strange flesh (Acts 10:10-29)
3. Peter meditated and the Holy Spirit gave him further revelation (Acts 10:17-20)
4. Daniel needed further insight after reading Jeremiahís prophecies (Dan. 9:1-3,21-27)
5. Daniel prayed and fasted-during prayer the Arch Angel Gabriel appeared to Daniel and granted him more revelation then he was seeking for (Dan. 9:1-3,21-27)
Visions may take some time to come to pass
1. After Corneliusí vision-it took 4 days to come to pass (Acts chap.10)
2. After Peterís vision-it took 3 days to come to pass (Acts 10)
3. After Zachariasí vision-it took a year thru 30 years to come to pass (Luke 1:11-25)
4. After Maryís vision-it took a year thru 33 years for Jesus to become the Savior (Luke 1:26-38)
5. After Manoahís vision-it took one year for Samson to be born (Judges 13)
6. After Nathanís prediction about the temple to be build-it took 50 years from the time David desired to built one till Solomon became king then actually started the construction of it (2 Sam.7:1-29/ 2 Chron.chap.ís 28-29)
7. Personally I was given a vision to go online with the teachings the Lord gave me way back in 2000 and here it is 2011 and I just started doing it. I have been given so much to share so look forward to a lot more materials that regular churches never speak about. The key to visions is that God will provide the means and the right timing to start a project at the right time.
What time do visions usually manifest?
1. During prayer; Peter (Acts 10:10-20) Paul (Acts 22:17-18) Daniel (Dan.9:21-27)
2. During noontime: Peter (Acts 10:9)
3. During the late noon time 3pm Cornelius (Acts 10:3)
4. During the evening time Daniel (Dan.9:21)
5. During bed time before going to sleep Samuel (1Sam.3)
6. During your sleep youíll receive a vision in a dream Joseph Maryís husband (Matt.1:18-25)
7. Personally I received a spiritual vision during prayer. My eyes are shut but I saw an Angel at one time guarding over me. On another occasion I would see demons attacking me, and I would exercise authority over them in Jesusí name.
Then as I would pray for several minutes or hours I would see peopleís faces relativeís , church members, co-workers, friends, acquaintances etc. I would be given inspired words to pray over them or pray in unknown tongues for them.
Where can you experience a vision?
1. In the temple doing service to the Lord-Zacharias (Luke 1:11-25)
2. At home-Mary (Luke 1:26-38) Ananias (Acts 9:10-16)
3. At your friends house on the roof top- Peter (Acts 10:10-20)
4. While youíre sitting in the field- Samsonís mom (Judges 13)
5. At the cementary- The women (John 20:1-18) The guards (Matt.28)
6. Walking on the road- Two disciples (Luke 24:13-32) Paul (Acts 9:1-9)
7. When your preaching Stephen (Acts 7:55-56)
8. Personally I heard an audible voice in March 1993 for the first time and the Holy Spirit actually quoted a verse Col. 3:24. It wasnít until 6 months after that encounter I found the verse he quoted. And the reason was so I can go ahead and build an Armoire fancy closet shaker style for a tyrannical boss. I obeyed and little did I know God open that manís heart and he gave us raises and allowed us to build 500 wood toys for the less fortunate and many more thingsÖ but if I wouldnít obey they probably would have been in server oppression or bankrupted or closed.
9. There were many other dreams visions that I encountered to prepare me for ministry and to select the right employment and schooling and moreÖ as I teach other topics I will use those testimonies then because I believe that sharing testimony is a timely thing with God.
10. Enjoy this teaching and share it itís free. God gave it to me to give to you. God bless u.
