ok, probably going out on a big limb here. I may be sorry....be gentle ...., WD and Tez...course the subject matter of this thread involves believing in a higher power..i.e. God....but I am just asking for thoughts...open forum.

Do you believe anyone, that God reveals His plan through dreams for our current day as He did in Biblical times?

And, what do you think of God giving signs for clarification in answer to prayer?

OMW,

I had a feeling this would be your thread, before I read it.

You can probably guess my answers already. Yes to dreams: God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Peter quoted Joel in Acts that people would "dream dreams", meaning inspired dreams. So I'd have to say he still reveals plans through dreams.

About signs I can't talk now .. I have to run.

Later, Seeker

guppy, yes I do. It is what He has always done...and as seeker says, He is the same today, yesterday and forever. I'm the one that is the yo-yo.

Hey, i can answer your question real quick. i had all but given up on my eyes for two years. (after traveling from city to city to md. to md. ) all with no. i had all but given up.

then philmore came along and started talkin about his eyes and fired me back up. i think that was meant to be. if it wasn't for him i wouldn't of sicked my dad on the mds. in houston and i wouldn't of went there and finally got my full (what's good ) functioning back. so i think god puts people in your path for a reason......in fact i know so....night

Yes, I believe God answers prayers in many ways. As vibrant as a dream to as little as a slight nudge or a whisper in your ear.

I believe in the power of group and positive thinking. You may call this praying, sometimes I call it praying, but I am sure we have much different views on who is listning.

I believe that within us all we have everything we need to guide, nurture and love ourselves. We have a higher spiritual being within that can and does assert itself through our dreams. I call this spirit my true or Higher Self or my conscious. You may call it the voice of God or the Holy Spirit.

I believe that when we send our sincere questions and seek out answers, our perception may become hightened, our awareness greater, thus letting the answers reveal themselves. You may call this signs from God.

With sincere regards,
Erica

Erica, that was a WONDERFUL post. So deep & thoughtful ... you have my utmost respect. Your profound insights seem quite Gnostic. Am I right? This way of looking within, to the Holy Spirit, (rather than sticking blindly & judgementally to dogmatic, rigid rules with which to beat & control others self-righteously) sounds beautifully like the Essene & Nazarene esoteric teachings of Jesus himself.

I completely agree with you! This way, instead of all the so-called "Christian" threats, bullyings, abuses of power & even wars ... true peace, empathy & Love can flourish.

Much love & many blessings - gazelle.

Mamacinnamon - wow. What a beautiful little post. THANKS. xxx

OMW -

I think god gives us answers in many ways - sometimes in dreams - sometimes in other ways.

If you open your heart to the possibility - I believe it can happen.

And I have to say that the times I got the STRONGEST messages from god was when I was together in group with others who believed - church and my 12 step meetings. Those were the times I found the deepest messages.

And funny - I have abandoned both of those rituals - out of laziness I guess - and today I open this post and am reminded of how comforting those messages were and how I felt good - and while life is good - something is missing - and this post itself has opened my eyes to what that is.

As I said - I believe messages come to you in many ways - and believe I just received another one!

Gazelle,

Actually, I just came across the word Gnosticism the other day in my search for the "Esoteric Christian" websites.

Honestly, I did not know that there were any organized "religions" that thought some of the same stuff that I do!!! LOL. I mean, the fartherest stretch I've ever really "heard" about was Budhism. I'm a little Catholic girl from Louisiana, remember. LOL, or at least I was...

I just really have done alot of thinking on the subject, mixed in with my upbringing, mixed in with a little AA and "Conversations with GOD". Sort of a big spiritual stew inside my head and I just try it on and see what fits...

Somedays, it's great!!!

Somedays the little catholic inside me screams I am going to hell for idolarity!!!

Just depends on when I am and who's driving the bus...

😉

Erica
