Faith & Free Will: The Sheep Vs. The Goats

It’s been awhile since my last post on here and for that, I apologize. But I just had a dream yesterday and last night/early this morning that I think can be important indicators relating to the upcoming eternal judgement/placement by Jesus Christ that I wanted to share with all of you.

Dream # 1:

I was about to head off on a trip in a gray? mid-sized minivan. The driver of the van was what looked like a 40-year old Asian man dressed in white with black hair and glasses. There was also another girl/young woman coming up behind me, getting ready to go on a trip somewhere, too. As I got up to the minivan, the Asian man (dressed in white, btw) gingerly took my bag/purse/whatever I had in my hand, and placed me and buckled me in on the right hand side in the minivan in the middle section of the van.

But as soon as I heard the other girl coming, I thought to myself “I want to sit behind the Asian man, I’d rather sit there right behind him on the left side of the van, then the right side”. As the girl/young woman came closer to the minivan with the open door, she said “I thought I was supposed to sit on the left, but I guess I’ll have to sit on the right hand side, now” and hesitantly got into the minivan on the right hand side and slowly buckled herself in.

And at SOME point in the dream between me being “placed” in the right hand seat and then UNBUCKLING myself and moving over to the left hand seat, the Asian man dressed in white stated to me: “You were originally meant to be placed in the right hand seat, that’s WHY I specifically placed you there. And I know you think the left-hand side’s better for whatever reason but the next time I place you in the right hand seat, PLEASE STAY THERE and stay seated and buckled in there, since that’s where you’re supposed to be and where I want and need you to be” or something along those lines.

And that’s INTERESTING, considering that in the book of Revelation, during the time of what’s known as God’s Judgement, he places the sheep on the right and the goats on the left. The sheep are the saints of God/Jesus Christ while the goats on the left represent those who’ve rejected God/Jesus Christ. The “minivan” represents “the great spiritual harvest” at the times of the End, the minivan being “gray” represents the “gray hazy crossroads” in one’s lives where they actually CHOOSE if they’re going to live for Jesus Christ or not and the Asian man dressed in white, I believe, represents Jesus Christ, symbolically speaking. And the “trip” represented “being placed for eternity”.

But looking around today at some of today’s headlines, I KNOW the harvest is ripe and the days are short. So please. I beg of you. If you’re not 100% right with Jesus Christ right now or you’ve unwittingly abandoned Christ in your life (for whatever reason), then please come back to a saving knowledge & relationship with Jesus Christ before it’s too late and your fate is “sealed” for eternity!!! Because once Jesus Christ TRULY arrives on the scene and places you on the right or the left during his great judgement, there will be NO 2nd chances, NO going back! Those poor folks that are sent to eternal condemnation weren’t placed there but simply CHOSE to go there, so remember that.

Dream # 2:

I was in what looked like a furniture or Serta mattress type store with lots and lots of windows out front. Me and a few other people were sitting near the front of the store in a wide-open space on the couch or something at what felt like 1pm or so in the afternoon. We were just sitting there relaxing, enjoying the beautiful green scenery of the trees and leaves of the trees right outside the store.

All of a sudden, out of nowhere, this guy with a long beard and sunglasses in military camouflage and black vest and combat boots comes pulling up in front of the store, quickly hops out of his vehicle and bends down on one knee and immediately cranks back the lever on a high-powered assault rifle/machine gun with the barrel pointed towards ME. And there was no doubt in my mind in the dream that this guy was going to kill me if I didn’t make a break for it and quickly. So I looked behind me and quickly scrambled for cover and ducked down behind what turned out to be goalie netting (with holes about 1/4th of a dime or so). Some other people there quickly followed my example and did the same.

And then, without warning, the guy shot off his machine gun (and although the “sound” of all the bullets going off was extremely loud, there was NO sound of shattering/breaking glass or anything…..EVEN THOUGH the glass was clearly shattered AS the bullets were penetrating it through……weird?) and THOUSANDS of bullets were stopped by the netting! And though the “tips” of the bullets slightly came through the netting about 1/2-1/4 of an inch INWARD (with the BACKS of the bullets facing towards US and the FRONT of the bullet tips pointing towards “the gunner”), and the “net” didn’t really sway back at all, as it normally would, as it was strong and durable and only swayed back only about 1/2-3 inches, if that; NONE of the bullets were able to touch me or the 2-3 other people there that had scrambled for cover with me. On the other hand, some of the other people that did NOT scramble for cover (and I’m pretty sure they could see the gunner too, but maybe not?) were “hit” by some of the bullets and I could hear their “moans” as they went down.

But in my interpretation of the dream, the “gunner” was the devil, me and the people who hid for cover were the saints of God/Jesus Christ, the people who REFUSED to duck for cover were those who either didn’t see the devil coming or didn’t care and thus, got “taken out” by him, and the “netting” represented me and the others’ faith that Jesus Christ would SAVE US from the “onslaught” brought on by the devil, the “gunner”.

Which brings to my mind a very important bible passage, concerning faith.

Matthew 17:20 says: “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you“.

Matthew 13:31-32 states:Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof”.

Here is an image of a Mustard seed. It’s similar to Quinoa seed, as far as size goes:

MUSTARD SEED

And though I don’t proclaim to know for 100% sure if this is a mustard tree/bush or not, (not ALL online pics are identified properly……I saw plenty of OLIVE trees labeled as mustard trees, for instance), here is a picture of what a mustard bush and mustard tree MAY look like:

As apparent in my dream, Jesus showed me that even a SMALL amount of faith is better than no faith and that even a SMALL amount of faith can turn out to be (as was my case in the dream) LIFE SAVING! 😉

“So”….some of you may wonder….”what is a person to do when they HAVE no faith?” Well, the simple answer is this: PRAY TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST FOR FAITH! 😉 It’s so simple that it’s often overlooked. And think about it. We put the keys into the ignition (if we have/drive a vehicle) and TRUST that our car/vehicle will start every single day, don’t we? We push the power button on the remote for our TV’s, having the FAITH that it will turn off. We dial or text numbers on our cell phone everyday trusting (for the most part) that it will go to/dial the proper number we mean to text/dial. We turn off/on our computers, having the FAITH that it will turn on/off. We put the keys into our doors everyday having the FAITH that it will unlock the house/apartment we live in.

So why can we not take the principle of faith we have in NON-LIVING OBJECTS and instead, have that type of faith when it comes to Jesus Christ, the one and true living/everlasting God? 😉

If you pray for faith and STILL struggle, try this: study up on Astronomy, Nature, and/or Biology/Microbiology/Genetics/Physics/Chemistry/etc. IN GREAT DETAIL (you can even use a beginner’s guide or “The Complete Idiot’s Guide To…..” series [[yes, that’s the ACTUAL name of the book series and no, I’m not personally calling anyone here an idiot, just so you know]] if you’re not scientifically inclined) and/or think about all the good miracles God/Jesus performed in the bible or what he’s done for you in your life so far.

And AS  you look more closely and way more in depth into HOW God created things and WHY (trust me, there’s a specific reason WHY he created things they way he did and/or WHY he performed the miracles in the bible/your life he did), you will find that faith starts to come naturally. When one studies the total COMPLEXITY of DNA/RNA/etc., for example, and all its neatly defined properties and behaviors, it’s nearly IMPOSSIBLE not to come to the conclusion that it was all made by intelligent design! 

“Lord Jesus, I kindly and humbly ask thee that any person that LACKS a faith in you will GAIN a true faith in you and that any person that has a WEAK faith in you or WEAK spiritual relationship with you, will GAIN a true spiritual relationship with you from here on out. And please bless them & keep them for eternity. Amen”.

 

 

How does Jesus Christ communicate with people?

Many Christians (and even those who are non-Christian or non-religious) may be wondering how Jesus Christ communicates with people, rather or not Jesus Christ ever tries to communicate with non-Christians, and exactly WHAT it is that people mean when they hear someone say “God spoke to me today” or “God told me to do/not do such and such”.

Many people might be wondering the question; “Did that person actually hear God’s AUDIBLE voice? Are they psychologically CRAZY? What is the DEAL, here?”

And the simple answer is THIS: Jesus Christ communicates in a NUMBER of ways to people. He can speak to people audibly during near-death experiences, for instance. (Although I’ve never personally heard of a case where he AUDIBLY spoke to someone in the MODERN DAY outside of a dream or near-death experience). He can also speak through dreams and visions (as Job 33: 14-18 in the Old Testament and the “dreams” of other Old Testament prophets/certain people attest to). And most importantly, he can speak to someone IN SPIRIT…..either through his divine words in the bible and/or through means of the Holy Spirit. And when he speaks through means of the Holy Spirit, it’s not so much an AUDIBLE out-loud voice so much as it is an “inner voice of biblical reason”.

And you can tell it’s the Holy Spirit of God when what your gut says ALIGNS itself with what the BIBLE says……things such as, “you need to spend more time with your family” (a value that’s highly favored in the bible), “you need to spend more time reading and meditating on the bible each week”, “you need to re-examine and re-strengthen your faith”, or “you should go witness to your atheist friend about me today” or “you should go donate your last $5 to that homeless man over there so he can buy something to eat today” or the like. It will also tell you things like “Jesus Christ is Lord” or “Yeshua” (Jesus’s Hebrew name).   

For example: a person could be struggling with something in their lives (like, forgiving someone who has hurt them, overcoming lust or greed, fixing a broken marriage, dealing with a death in the family, etc.) And then, they will either have a dream or vision where Jesus tells them how to overcome the situation they’re struggling with or they’ll be prompted to look up a certain bible passage or to go read a certain Christian blog or listen to a certain Christian radio or tv program that covers the exact topic in question OR a friend, acquaintance or family member of the person with knowledge of that subject will oftentimes call or email the person out of the blue (as if by a miracle), which then opens the person to asking the friend the best way to deal with said topic/struggle. I’ve had that happen to me MANY times!

And if a person is non-Christian or a follower of ANOTHER religion besides true, biblical-based (Jewish-roots) Christianity, Jesus Christ will try to communicate with that individual in a certain set of ways. He’ll either try to speak to that person through an angel, a street preacher, a youtube video, an evangelist, an online message board, a televangelist, a Christian friend or family member, a blog, a news article about a miracle that happened, a near-death experience, a dream, a vision, a miracle, a radio broadcast, a book, a movie, the bible, etc. He has an INFINITE number of ways to try to communicate with the non-believer or with followers of a religion that is not COMPLETELY biblically-based (be it Satanism, atheism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Catholicism, Mormonism, Islam, Hinduism, etc.)

In fact, MANY non-Christian people and/or followers of other religions have reported having dreams and visions of Jesus Christ. It would seem these days that Jesus Christ Almighty is trying to get through to as many people as possible before the day of reckoning. And once that day comes, it will be too late for people to change their minds. Their eternal fate will be sealed and there will be NO.WAY.OUT. FOREVER. Revelation 20:15 gives a VERY CLEAR description of what happens to ALL those who disregard Jesus Christ and his sacrifice on the cross for mankind’s sins: “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire”.

However, there are ALSO cases where Satan will appear to people in visions and dreams DISGUISED as Jesus Christ sometimes, in order to try to fool people. So how can people tell the difference, you may ask? Well, the answer is simple. First of all, how do you FEEL when you very first encounter Jesus Christ in your visions or dreams? Do you feel content, restful, at peace, happy? Or do you feel uneasy, unsure, full of anxiety, etc? Secondly, do the words of “Jesus Christ” in your visions or dreams line up with the bible? Like, if a form of Jesus Christ appears in your dream and tells you “you should spend more time with your family”, it is most likely the good Lord himself speaking since the bible highly values marriage and family.

BUT…….if the “Jesus Christ” in your dream tells you to do something CONTRARY to the bible such as “you don’t have to read the bible every week to have strong faith” or “you really don’t have to try to make up with your friend that you had a falling out with, that’s not important to me right now” or “it’s okay if you don’t celebrate the Sabbath every week or celebrate it on the CORRECT time-frame (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown)”, etc. or makes you feel UNEASY or NERVOUS, then it is most definitely NOT the Jesus of the bible speaking to you in the dream!

But beware…….Satan can get so tricky sometimes as to appear to someone in a vision or dream in the form of Jesus Christ, say something that “SEEMS” to align with the bible, and then quickly add in a little tidbit that goes AGAINST the bible once he has the dreamer convinced that he is Jesus Christ and NOT himself!

As in: “So….I’ve been noticing you’ve been reading the bible alot lately……..good job…….I’m impressed……….now, I’d like you to work on THIS other area in your life……instead of reading the bible from now on, I want you to go out and focus on yourself for awhile……..you’ve been working so hard lately for my great, heavenly name…….and I want and need for you to take a break and relax for awhile, trust me, you need it. And then after a time, you can come back and be all “refreshed” in my “great heavenly name'”  [Note: The Lord Jesus Christ Almighty “never takes a vacation” from being God, so why should WE ever “take a vacation” from being his servant? Answer: we shouldn’t!]

So be VERY, VERY careful when trying to interpret/process spiritual visions and dreams!!!!!!!

And this isn’t a GAME, folks! This is FOR REAL! There is a SPIRITUAL WAR going on out there in today’s world, a war for your very SOUL! And believe me, your SOUL is the single most precious thing that you have, more valuable than ANY money, gold, possessions, friends or fame.  Cause what you say, do and believe in THIS world will determine where your SOUL (the single most precious possession that you have) will go for ETERNITY!

For our very own thoughts, deeds and actions someday will be judged accordingly. Those who put their faith, love and trust into Jesus Christ and follow all his commandments in the bible to the best of their ability shall enter into eternal life. But those who do NOT put their faith, love and trust into Jesus Christ and follow all his commandments in the bible to the best of their ability shall enter into eternal condemnation.

There is one way and ONLY one way and that way is through Jesus Christ. There are ONLY two paths in the world: the path of light, which leads to truth which is Jesus Christ and the path of darkness (all other religions other than biblically-based Christianity, including atheism) that lead to eternal condemnation. So essentially, the TWO choices are FOR Christ or AGAINST Christ. What side are YOU on?
