No One to Talk To
I spoke with a seer this week who attends a church. She said she doesn’t have anyone to talk to about her seeing gift because her religious leaders declared, “the gift of seeing is Bible times stuff and I should probably talk to my therapist about it.”
She added, “I’m smart enough to not talk to any of my therapists about [the seeing gift]. That would be a one way trip to the loony bin.”
God Can’t Speak through Dreams?
One of this seer’s college ministry leaders added that God doesn’t speak through dreams.
For God speaks in one way and in two though a man does not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men, while they slumber on their beds. The Book of Job 33:14-15.
That’s not to say every or even most dreams are from God… but who are we to say what God does and doesn’t do, especially when biblical writers expressly declared God does so?
Bible Times Stuff
Yes, seeing into the spirit realm and receiving visions from God through dreams is Bible times stuff. And we are living in Bible times. The Bible is for today.
Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today, and forever.
Seers Called to the Nonbelievers
It can be frustrating when seers are called to a church which does not accept their abilities and gifts and even declares those of us who do accept them “in a cult.”
My advice is not to run from these churches, but to embrace your calling, and reveal the gift with care, if at all. You can move in the gifting without telling people.
Allow God to show you how. And do not be frustrated. Do not fear. Love those around you. When leaders say things that reveal their ignorance or errant theology, don’t feel the need to correct them or to respond. Allow God to bring them along accordingly. Do not be offended.
Instead, be patient and kind. Don’t insist on having things your way and don’t be irritable or resentful. Bear all things. Look for ways to integrate, to accomplish what Jesus wants you to accomplish, peaceably, while getting along with others whenever possible. It’s really not about our feelings or experiences, but about God’s call on our lives.
Seers in Therapy
Regarding therapists: use caution in revealing this ability to therapists, unless the therapist has a supernatural worldview rooted in faith in Jesus and filled with the Holy Spirit.
