I will try to make a slightly long story short but here goes. When I was younger I had a few dreams that were literally like watching a video of something that was to happen. It always did and kind of scared me. Then as I got older it continued. I had a dream, in my belief, warning me to beware of alcohol and to stay away from it. I forgot this but eventually turned to it for a solution. Anyway it didn't last long because my, then boyfriend now husband, helped me work through it. I even started to pray again-I was very angry at God. Anyway when I was still young I had a few creepy dreams. In one very vivid one I remember seeing the devil in my house. He was tall, in a suit, and very handsome (sorry best way to describe him). He had an alluring smile and eyes that were black but very inviting and yet terrifying. He was standing over my parents bed and told me I couldn't save them or anyone. Well throughout that dream I kept trying to. He took me through the different stages in my life. At the end I was in my room and there were huge hurricane force winds in my room dragging me too him. He was smiling and laughing saying I couldn't escape. Needless to say I sent a prayer up to God in the dream and I was saved. I feel into blackness right as I finished my prayer and woke up to see a beautiful white light in my room and a peace that was amazing. Needless to say I couldn't go back to sleep that night but the dream haunted me a few more times.
Later I had end of the world dreams a few times. The world was without any vegetation and there were may wars, people killing others for any reason. There was no electricity, no running water; it was almost like the earth was dying itself. It was terrifying, people were tortured and it was very brutal. My family always died in it. After I had these for awhile I finally had the sequence finished. There was a place in Israel (I don't know the name sorry) and there was a great battle going on. There was a huge army with the man who played the devil in my dreams at the head. There was a smaller army at the top of the hill that was surrounded by a white light with a host of angels behind it and a thrown with someone sitting in it. During these dreams I was always a different age, which was strange.
I haven't had them for a few years and I forgot about it, especially when I became angry at God. When I met my husband and he saved me I found God again. Then I became pregnant and at the time I had vivid dreams of my daughter. I told everyone she would have light hair and blue eyes, she does, even though everyone said she would look like me. I even said she would look like her dad and she does. She constantly told me what was happening to her in the dreams and asking me to take care of her. After she was born she would tell me she was teething or some other random stuff. Now I'm starting to freak out a bit because I have been praying to God to help me find a church for our family and I keep getting dreams again about churches. One in particular tempts us with every earthly desire. Its the only one I dream about. I'm not sure if these dreams mean anything or what but I want to help my daughter find God as well. I'm just confused because I want a church for our family but am afraid of these dreams. Now creepy beings have been appearing. I am afraid to take the dream catchers down to see what happens because they have kept all these dreams out since I started using them. Thanks in advance!
I have had similiar experiences. I will not offer my own advice... That would be foolish... Instead I'll share what God the Father has to say in His Holy Word, the Bible. "Do not forsake the assembling of yourselves together"...it is in a safe truth -taught church with like-minded people who also love the Lord that we learn why we are here and what our gifts are that we may serve the Lord as well as our fellow man.
Another scripture... Fear is not from God... It is a tactic used by the devil to keep people off track. Isaiah 41:10
10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
Do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Do not avoid church... That would be a grave mistake. Raise your children in the midst of people who love and obey God... Give them the opportunity to know Him from childhood and develop a strong relationship of trust and faith while they are young... They will need it when they grow older. God says "Teach a child in the way that he should go (believe) and when he is old, he will not depart from it. As parents we have been given a great responsibility to teach our children... Even in spirituality. They will be bombarded as adults with every available form of spirituality later on but for now... Give them a solid base... A strong faith in God the Father and Jesus Christ, His son, He is the one who gave you the gift of your children.
Blessings to you!
