This article could also have been named dreams and visions of Jesus.The Bible is full of instances when
God communicated with individuals by dreams and visions. They are spiritual experiences where Gods presence and personal manifestation are very real to the recipient.
Almost all of the occasions where I experienced these things,were times of trouble and distress.God obviously decided I needed a little more of His help and I was greatly comforted each time.
Over the years,because of this type of experience,I have come to appreciate how closely God watches over us.
In my first year as a christian,I was a live in resident of a rehabilitation ministry for recent converts who needed support to get their lives on track.I had come from a very troubled background,
the results of which,the Lord healed over time.
One of my early problems was very bad dreams where vicious dogs were after me plus various other frightening content.It got to the stage where I was scared to go to sleep because of the intensity of the dreams.At the height of this distress I had a dream in which I was standing in the Garden bar of a hotel with a group of fellow drinkers.We were standing in a circle and I remember that I had a glass of whisky in my hand.
I looked across the circle of people and saw Jesus standing their looking at me.His clothes and person were bright white.
I remember being very surprised to see Him in that location.Excessive drinking had been one of my problems.
Following that dream,I had no more problems with bad dreams.That dream also helped me to understand
the grace of God ,in that He was willing to come into a less than righteous situation to help me.
