Believers' Prayer Meeting with The Saint | R 17 W 6 D 2.


Welcome to The Upper Room. So glad to have you join us.

We continue with our meditations in The Book of Daniel, as we dig into verse 14 of Chapter 10. It reads,

"Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.”"

How Prophecy Comes. (Part Two)

So, God speaks to us through direct physically audible voices, which is very rare, especially, in this dispensation. We see an example of this in His call to Samuel. [1 Samuel 3] He does not do as much of that today, possibly because His spirit is now resident in us. More of what we see today is the deep impression of His spirit, which is just as good as an audio voice, depending on how exercised or developed your spirit is.

As alluded to above, this can be developed. Jesus tells us that, "if we desire to do His will, we will know His will." [John 7:17] "If we hunger and thirst after His will, He will fill us." [Matthew 5:6] "If we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us." [James 4:8] It is just as simple as that, but it does not come from a haphazard application. It must be true. It must be deep. It must be whole. [Jeremiah 29:13]

The next common way by which God speaks to us is through visions. This is alluded to in our texts, Daniel 10:14 and Numbers 12:6-8. Though Dreams are mentioned separately, they are a type of vision. Vision is exactly as the word implies. It involves seeing. There are three (3) basic types of visions. The commonest and simplest is a dream. Not all dreams are visions, nor do all dreams mean something or a message from divinity.

There are dreams and there are dreams. Most dreams are simply a replay of the day's events or that of the past. They are simply our subconsciousness playing a trick on us and possibly mean nothing. The dreams that might mean something are those which involve a third party. That third party can either be God or the devil, and his agents. When it is from the devil, it is possibly an attack. When it is of God, it is possibly a message, a direction, a revelation, a wisdom.

Some of the ways to distinguish the third-party agents include their alignment or lack thereof with the Word of God. The Spirit and the Word agree. [1 John 5:7-8] God will NEVER give a message which does not agree with His word. The Word is the Word of Truth. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth. He is the Spirit of the Word. The Father, The Spirit, and The Word agree.

Let's pray.

The Saint.
