We normally dream dreams in our sleep. But Vision is more than dreaming. Vision is defined as
“In Scripture, a revelation from God; an appearance or exhibition of something supernaturally presented to the minds”
I already related my dream which was a “Vision” from God while I was sleeping sometime in September 15, 1972.
I saw myself walking home and my body was filled with diseases. On reaching home I saw the furniture all in a mess. And then I saw a Cross broken into half and dangling.
Then I saw Jesus Christ crucified for my sins on the Cross.
Then I got up from my dream while it was still dark (about 5am in the morning)
And I remembered I was perspiring with sweat in the cold morning
I got out and knelt beside my bed & accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my Lord & Saviour
I felt to my great surprise, a burden of over 200 pound load removed from my shoulder & from that day I was delivered from the devil and the power of the gambling habit.
Straightaway I started to witness to my best friend – Mohd Sdolehuddin about Jesus being the True Saviour.
He did not believe as he was a Muslim (His father was a Malay but his mother is Chinese). After trying to convince him as best I could it was still no use.
Then I said, “Mohd, do you ever dream?”
“No”, Mohd replied. “I sleep very soundly every night without dreams or nightmares” “My sleep is always very peaceful”
“Mohd”, I said, “You will be getting a dream which will shake you out of your bed”
“What?” Mohd retorted, “No such thing” “I don’t believe this nonsense”
I insisted, “Mohd, you will get a dream which will shake you out of your slumber”
Weeks passed. And one day Mohd Sdolehuddin came to visit me in my house.
“Can I talk to you in the quietness of your room?” He asked. “Yes of course” and I brought him to the back of the Apartment & sat down.
Then Mohd said, “I will now tell you something that will greatly surprise you”
“Go ahead”, I replied
“One night I was sleeping”, Mohd continued. “I saw myself walking on the Street. Then I saw the Street Lights caught fire and people everywhere were running helther and skelther.
But I was trembling in fear. My knees were weak and I could not move”
Then I woke up. And I sweated all over. The night was pitch dark when I got up still trembling in fear”
After hearing Mohd out I said, “I am not surprised at all Mohd” I have been expecting God to answer my prayers. I have been praying day and night for you to be saved”
And so Mohd Sdolehhudin was my first convert more than 47 years ago
Not long after Mohd got converted we visted Tan Shak Seong (brother of Jackson Tan Said Meng who told me about Jesus and gave me a copy of THIS WAS YOUR LIFE by Jack Chick)
We preached the gospel to Tan Shak Seong and got the usual reply. He slept peacefully every night
We told him that he will be getting a dream or vision that will utterly shake him up. Shak Seong was quite amused as Jackson has been telling him to trust in Christ but to no avail. But we told Shak Seong in great faith and expectation that he too, will get a vision from God
And not long after that Shak Seong shared his vision.
SHAK SEONG SAW HIMSELF IN A VISION. HE KNEELING BEFORE GOD AT THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT. AND HE WAS TREMBLING IN THE GREATEST FEAR FOR HIS LIFE
On hearing that I was quite jealous at first. Why Shak Seong has the privilege of seeing GOD ALMIGHTY AT THE GREAT WHITE THRONE? Why not me?
Then I thought. Why do you want to see THE GREAT WHITE THRONE?
IS NOT THE VISION OF CALVARY FAR FAR BETTER?
YES!! TO THIS DAY I THINK I AM HAPPIEST IN SEEING MY DEAR LORD JESUS CHRIST DYING FOR ME ON THE CROSS
AMEN & AMEN
King James Bible (Acts 2:17)
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:
Yes, all 3 of us had visions in our days of youth about 16 to 17 years in age.
Now in our sixties these words “old men shall dream dreams” also come true.
What kind of dreams? More about ” old men shall dream dreams:” in coming articles.
