Sweet Dreams Are Made of This

Hello everyone hope you have had a fantastic weekend. I pray everyone is healthy and everyone you love is healthy. This week I'd like to discuss how some believer in their opinion that God speaks to us in dreams. It's not just a time where some feel they are open for demonic attack. Call on God next time you feel this way and see what happens. The bible has examples of God speaking to people in dreams and telling us he will speak through dreams. The following a a few examples of that.

And they replied "we both had dreams but no one can tell us what they mean.”
“Interpreting dreams is God’s business,” Joseph replied.
“Go ahead and tell me your dreams"

Genesis 40:8 (NLT) Jacob Dreamed
11 Then the Angel of God spoke to me in a dream, saying, 'Jacob.' And I said, 'Here I am.'24 But God had come to Laban the Syrian in a dream by night, and said to him, "Be careful that you speak to Jacob neither good nor bad."
Gen 31:11,24 Genesis 2812 Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.

"And the Lord said to them, “Now listen to what I say:
“If there were prophets among you,I, the Lord, would reveal myself in visions. I would speak to them in dreams."
Numbers 12:6 (NLT)

"He speaks in dreams, in visions of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they lie in their beds."
Job 33:15 (NLT)

"For in many dreams and in many words there is emptiness.
Rather, fear God." "And the LORD answered me, and said,
Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables,
that he may run that readeth  it.  For the vision is yet for an appointed time,
but at the end it shall speak, and not lie:
though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry."
Habakkuk 2:2-3 (KJV)

"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" Acts 2:17

The facts that you have heard from God does not mean everyone will welcome your dream. People will react differently but most likely not positive at times. Your dream will be opposed just like Joseph’s and Jesus’ and Nehemiah’s or Paul’s. However this should not deter you. If you know your dream is from God, hold on to it, pray it back to God when the storms and wind come storming in. The brothers of Joseph conspired against him. They threw him into the pit sold him into slavery. He ended up in Potiphar’s house as a servant. It was as if his dream bought and brought him trouble.

What I do is keep a pen and paper next to my bed to take notes of any odd dreams so I can remember them because many people, and I am among them tend to forget what they have dreamed the longer they are awake. What took place seems to fade rather quickly upon waking up from these. I'm not sure why that happens. Could be a number of reasons for this but if you write down some notes upon waking that will really up possibly in understanding what exactly took place in the dreams you are having.

Can Our Souls Fragment?

By Reverend Mark Hunnemann

"Behold, all souls are Mine..." (Ezekiel 18:4)

"And do not fear those who kill the body but but cannot kill  the soul. Rather fear Him who can destroy both soul and body in hell." (Matthew 10:28)  

"...we have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of our souls." (1: Peter 2:24)

"We have this hope as an anchor for our souls." (Hebrews 6:19)

Can our souls fragment after we die? Or can they even fragment while we are alive, and then the fragments disperse at death? While this notion may seem bizarre to some, it is becoming more popular. If you watch The Dead Files, then you will recall that Amy speaks of fragmented souls frequently.Parapsychology is more apt at this stage to discuss this notion than some paranormal investigators, but it is trickling down quickly, and we need to keep abreast of current thought and trends. That way we (the Church of Jesus) will be relevant to the needs and questions of our dear friends.

What is the big deal? What is at stake in this discussion? The issue is nothing less than the identity of human beings--and our continued identity after death. The soul is our essence, and can it be disintegrated or fragmented? Can life become so hard or traumatic that we literally start to fall apart?  Please do not mistake what we are discussing with the very real phenomenon of psychiatric meltdown. That can and does happen, even to the most godly. But those are FEELINGS. Not actual fragmenting of the soul itself..

No, this has to do with the soul itself LITERALLY FRAGMENTING. Huge difference, can the trials of life threaten to to destroy our essence? Or as one shaman put it--the karmic weight of living an excessively evil life may become so heavy that it shatters the soul?

Christian theology has two presuppositions--the infinite /personal God really exists, and He has not remained silent but has spoken to us in the bible.Modern man has rejected both, and in doing so, has become bereft of any foundation for understanding invisible reality, like the human soul.

Only God can meet the two deepest longings in our souls--the longing for security and significance. Our security and significance does not depend . upon feelings, but upon our Rock...God Himself, who is an anchor for our souls. What a beautiful and powerful message we have for modern men and women!!

They are like sheep without a shepherd or a boat without an anchor...utterly lost and without any basis for security or significance. No basis for understanding the nature and destiny of our souls after death (or before death).The bible speaks against this notion of soul fragmentation everywhere.    The few verses.quoted above scream against this notion.

"It is appointed to man to die once, and then face judgement." (Hebrews 9:27) At death, God (who owns our souls) keeps our souls intact to stand in judgement before His holy throne.  Nothing can  touch or disintegrate our souls--even though it may feel otherwise.

Yes, we may FEEL insecure or insignificant at times....we may even experience a meltdown...BUT, nothing....NOTHING... can touch our souls.Our feelings are not an accurate judge of the immense worth, dignity, and eternal nature of our souls.

God created our souls and he keeps them from fragmenting, regardless of how psychologically fragmented we feel. How horrible to wonder if one's soul is literally coming unglued while alive (please see quote below). Or how much worse to think that one's soul may be torn asunder after death--with pieces of my essence scattered here and there.

Check out the following quote....

"As part of normal living we all will have created a number of sub-personalities within our being. Each will have a fragment of the soul's energy to sustain its existence. These sub-personalities can continue to co-exist within if this is what is deemed appropriate or they can, at anytime, be reabsorbed into the soul's inner light. Ejected sub-personalities can sometimes seem like possessing entities for they are a part of the psyche trying to get back home.

If a person dies with an ejected sub-personality or one or other of the sub-personalities have been captured by an evil entity then that part does not pass back into the spirit realm but remains stuck close to the Earth plane. These parts of the psyche await the time when the soul is back in incarnation again and they can then be re-united with the soul's energy. To do this fully might also entail clearing any negative attachments that have accrued to them." (excerpt from unknown source)

Huh??!! What you read above is what happens when  we speculate about the nature and destiny of the human soul apart from divine revelation--the result is insanity. Our generation is deeply lost, and we should bow our heads and weep...The price for jettisoning God and His revelation is exceedingly high--we lose our souls--temporally and for eternity in hell.

May the Lord use us to touch others lives and hearts.

Family Haunts Wants Your Money!

By Chris Baricko

There is a couple here in Connecticut called Family Haunts. They are starting what they call a paranormal school. They claim they will teach people how to become a paranormal investigator. Plus you get to go on a investigation But wait there is more and you get a certificate as well all for the high price of $150.00. Now being local and from the area, I along with others, did some homework and most of what they claim is not proven. Let's start at the top. I asked two other local groups if they ever heard of them and the answer was no. Now if they have the experience within the paranormal community most groups will at least have heard of them. As far as I know there are no degrees any collage gives out saying paranormal investigator trainer. So they did not pay anyone for any education such as a doctor or lawyer who went to school and got a degree.

Now this is right off the interview they did. Here's the link:

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. no not really

So they admitted they do not keep up with the latest developments in the paranormal field. Then why do they think they are fit to teach others. Would you go to a plumber or a doctor to get your car fixed?

They claim they do exorcisms yet I do not see a priest or bishop or even a demonologist listed anywhere.

They claim they been around over 25 years but their Facebook page says is founded in 2001. Um, I am no mathematician but it is 2014 so that is only 13 years.

But wait it gets better click on the link below now they say they have 60 years experience. Really--60 years? Now I am not a doctor, but none of them look so 60 + 25 is 85 years experience. All I can say is WOW! Once again another misleading statement.

They refer to people they help as CUSTOMERS not clients like every other group does. Now being a customer means you pay right? They even respond to when asked why should they get hired. Sorry we are called, not hired. There reply is even more outrageous. They say cause there the best. Really? There is not one group who is the best in this field, period. We all do things a little differently.

They also say they do land clearing. I was unable to find anything under the BBB or Department of Consumer Protection. Not even in the yellow pages listed under the name Family Haunts Land Clearing. 

They have a photo of what they call a shadow figure and they say is was taken in a hallway. They said there was nothing in front of it. Well sorry when another investigator blew it up once again proven this was false. 

They do not have a web page for anyone to look them up. Now just about every group and person in the field has a web page so people can do their homework on them.

So let's ask ourselves some questions. What qualifies them to teach anyone let alone charge $150.00?  They admitted they do not keep up with the field. They call clients customers. They claim the following: land clearing, exorcisms, have a total of over 85 in the field. And they get hired. 

Now anyone can easily see some of their statements are so far out there and none can be proven. Hopefully others see what their true goal is: $$$$. If you want to learn you can for FREE--just contact any local paranormal group and they would be more than happy to teach them anything you want to know. The paranormal is about helping people not making money
