God's Picture Language

As leaders in these last days you must hear from the Lord in as many ways as He may desire to talk to you. One way the Lord talks to us is through His picture language. The written word says in Acts 2:17, "In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams." One of the many blessings of the new covenant of grace and faith is that we can see visions and dream dreams. The word "all" means not just patriarchs of the Old Testament, or just the apostles Paul and Peter or some select group! The Bible says the Father pours out His Spirit on ALL people. You can hear God’s voice in a dream or vision. God speaks through dreams while we sleep and through visions while we are awake.

The Father changed Peter’s perspective of grace through a vision (Acts 10). The Father warned Joseph in a dream of Herod’s plans to kill babies (Matt. 2). The Father called Paul from Asia to minister in Europe through a vision (Acts 16). Last days leaders can hear from God in His "picture language." It’s okay and better than okay!
