Have you ever had someone tell you something would happen and then it does? Like, one time I had a dream about a co-workers Father being trapped inside a burning house (awful I know) and he died a week later. (I didn't share the dream with her by the way!) Also, 3 days before my brother-in-law died I was riding in the car with Jimmy and said "I don't know what it is babe, but I just feel like there's something BIG around the corner for us?" There's been other things that have happened. Some good, some bad. Has that ever happened to you? If so, tell me about them....I love that kinda stuff.
I don't believe in psychics. I believe in the Holy Spirit. I believe that the Lord gives us those dreams or those feelings to prepare us for something. Not sure how theologically correct it is, I just know it's happened to me A LOT!!!!!
The Bible is FULL of predictions. FULL I tell ya. There's one that I came across this season that is familiar to us all, but for some reason just really got my attention.
"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Isa 9:6
One thing that hits me. Isaiah says "a child IS born" and hello.....this was written YEARS before Jesus was born. Don't ya love that? Isaiah was already anticipating it as if it had happened. LOVE it!
I know that in the day and time we live Jesus is not called "Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace". In fact, a lot of people throw His Precious Name around as a word to use in frustration or excitement. But know this, there's another prediction that gives me great joy in this season and in this time we live...."Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him" Rev 1:7a (emp mine) Even so, come Lord Jesus!!!!
