Dreams and visions
Joel 2:28 "And your sons and daughters will prophesy, Your old men will dream dreams, your young men sill see visions."
Visions is about God's nature, God reveals Himself in visions. God took Abraham out in a vision and showed him His promise and Abraham's future.
We see our future, see God's heart in visions.
It happens when we're young. Visions start the journey, they give us passion and purpose to keep going.
Dreams is about God's agenda. God reveals His plans in dreams.
When we're young, we can't handle God's plans. We want to do it our own ways. And often it will take us quite a while to get to a place that we realise our ways are not gonna get us through, only God's ways can get us to God's destinies for us. It took Moses 40 years, Abraham 25 years to be ready for God's plans. And by that time they're pretty old. And when we're old in spirit, we can handle God's plan, and that's the time for dreams in which God reveals in detail His strategies and plans.
Sons and daughters have parents. Parents teach their sons and daughters and pass on their gifts. Prophecies can be taught. Anyone can prophesy if someone teaches him how. Prophesy is a skill that can be learned, nurtured and developed. You need a parent to help you grow into the maturity of prophesy.
"Even on the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days."(v29)
Even if you're not the sons and daughters that have close relations to spiritual parents, just by helping out, by serving, by hanging around, by exposing yourself to, God's Spirit will still pour out on you. You'll witness miracles and receive blessings.
The widow who served Elijah and Elisha didn't prophesy, have visions or dream dreams. But she received financial provision and miracle of resurrection, healing,etc. If you serve, you're at the receiving end of His pouring out.
Anyway these are just some of my random thoughts.
BTW, we're starting another round of prophetic school this friday, dayschool(10:30) and night school(7:30), let me know if your interested!
