FOUR DREAMS ON A SATURDAY NIGHT
Saturday(April 2, 2005) night, I had four very vivid dreams. Here they are:
1. I dreamed I had preached a woman's funeral and was getting ready to preach another. This one was for Ricky, a resident of the nursing home where I preach. He had no wife but had two sisters there. The crowd was gathering at the funeral home chapel (I recognized Mr. Pearson, the funeral home director) as he brought in Ricky (He is the one I wrote the story Ricky Sings a Song He Did Not Know, posted elsewhere on this forum). Ricky was on a stretcher, and not in a coffin. Suddenly, he sat up and began to sing. I was shouting "Praise the Lord!" and everyone was amazed and rejoicing because Ricky came back from the dead.
2. I went to my family cemetery where folks were gathered to clean up. As I opened the double chain link fence gates, I looked down and saw some concrete. I got a shovel and removed the dirt. I uncovered two grave slabs (they were only covered by about two inches of dirt) at the gate entrance. On one was the inscription, John Milton Winn, (my mother's maiden name was Winn). The other grave was covered by a three hinged door, and as it was opened, I could see the body of a 60 year old woman through the clear glass that was the coffin lid. She looked serene, was wearing glasses, and had on a beautiful blue dress. Her hands were folded over her stomach, and I asked who she was. Someone nearby said, "That was one of John Winn's daughters". Nearby these graves, we uncovered a cabinet of wood about six feet tall, and four feet long. On it were displays of Indian artifacts, miniature horses of various colors, arrows with razor sharp edges, feathers, and necklaces and beads. The cabinet had a built in musical device; I wound it up and it began to play beautiful gospel music. The folks that were cleaning the cemetery began to sing and praise Jesus.
3. I dreamed of one of my high school classmates, Danny. He was the most athletic and popular guy in my high school but sadly, he was killed by a drunk driver at the age of 22 (30 years ago). In my dream, Danny and I were sitting at a table discussing things. He was asking my advice and listening intently to what I had to say. We stood up, and I noticed I was about four inches taller than Danny. In High school, He was about 6 feet one inch, and I was 5'11" (still am). Then I woke up.
4. I was flying as a passenger in a small airplane. The windshield was out and I could feel the cold air flowing. I was sitting in the rear of the plane, the cargo bay was open, and I was dangling my bare feet out. They were warmed by the exhaust of the engine. The only people in the plane was the pilot, one more passenger and me. I could look down and see the scenery passing by and could feel the sensation of the warm exhaust on my cold feet.
The Lord has often spoke to me in dreams. He has revealed the meaning of these dreams to me.
ACTS 2 verse 17 "AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS IN THE LAST DAYS, SAITH GOD, I WILL POUR OUT OF MY SPIRIT UPON ALL FLESH: AND YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY, AND YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS, AND YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM DREAMS."
