Something for everyone.....

Kansas Bob has been having a great discussion
about Cessationism and Spiritual gifts. Very interesting.

I dreamt last night that we (? don't know who 'we' was) were having a party. I thought it was just a very nice party, because all the good linens were out and there were wonderful little boxes at all the tables. As we were getting things together for our guests, I was overcome with curiosity. I started peeking into the boxes. There were pieces of jewelry in all of them...bracelets, necklaces, rings, etc. The colors were lovely. By the way, I'm not a jewelry gal, but I thought these were exquisite--even though they looked kind of like any piece of jewelry that you might find at a department store. Against the pure white of the boxes and the linens, the colors were incredible. The colors that came out at me were pink, blue, green, and amber/gold. Someone came up behind me and said, "These are for them to keep, as long as they share them with everyone at the table."

I looked up the Biblical meaning of these colors: love and joy; spirituality; healing and growth; grace & peace. Of course, white is Christ's light, truth and purity.

That was a pretty cool dream.

I don't remember many of my dreams although I know I dream every night. Whenever I have remembered a dream in any sort of detail - and that is very rare - I know it is of God.

Praises to the Lord for your dream.

Karen,

I not only don't say anything like that in a dream, I also haven't said anything like that when I'm awake.

Beautiful!

Thanks

Your dream made me think about the eulogy I gave at my first wife's funeral back in 1994. I said:

"While Ellen triumphed in suffering, I was not always so triumphant. My frustrations with her situation were usually vented in prayer. Several days before she passed on I was in such a prayer session -- I was asking the Lord why Ellen had to go through all the pain that she was experiencing during this last hospitalization. His answer surprised me - for I no sooner said the word "Why?" and my mind was flooded with a picture of a golden crown ... filled with rubies, emeralds and diamonds.

I think that the Lord was showing me that Ellen was a jewel in His crown -- an emerald of patience and endurance -- a diamond reflecting the radiance of His joy -- and a ruby of His love and compassion. She was on display for us all ... so that we could know the beauty of faith ... the warmth of love ... and the courage of someone who faced adversity and beat it!"

That is very neat.

Bob, I can't imagine the strength it took to deliver Ellen's eulogy. Your words about her are wonderful, and inspiring, and I know that the Lord gave you that vision to let you know that all is well.
Amazing...grace!

I've had dreams like that three times~ one was a vision during prayer.
Each time, the gifts were simply that~ gifts.
But this last time, the "gifts" were aspects of God that I was discovering in drawers cut from gems.
I can't remember if I blogged about that vision or not, but it was cool.

I love that confirmation, Christine!
