Dreams, Visions and Voices
SONG: Twila Paris – I Will Listen
General revelation (creation) suggests to most people GOD as the creator. The Bible Christians use is a special form of revelation:
1) Holy Spirit inspired writings,
2) GOD generated visions and dreams,
3) Angelic visitation and,
4) GOD’s spoken voice.
Let us look at an example of each:
1) Holy Spirit
John 14:26 ESV
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.
2) GOD generated visions and dreams
Genesis 37:5-8 ESV
5 Now Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers they hated him even more. 6 He said to them, “Hear this dream that I have dreamed: 7 Behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and behold, my sheaf arose and stood upright. And behold, your sheaves gathered around it and bowed down to my sheaf.” 8 His brothers said to him, “Are you indeed to reign over us? Or are you indeed to rule over us?” So they hated him even more for his dreams and for his words.
Acts 16:9 ESV
3) Angelic visitation
Luke 1:19 ESVAnd the angel answered him, “I am Gabriel. I stand in the presence of God, and I was sent to speak to you and to bring you this good news.
4) GOD’s spoken voice
1 Samuel 3:10 ESV
