Picture Language May Be Used to Warn Us

We know from the Word of God that the Father may speak to us through dreams, visions and trances. When He uses this "picture language," it may be to warn us of something that is going to happen.

God warned Joseph about Herod’s plans for genocide by way of a dream. This allowed Joseph to flee the genocide thus protecting the young Jesus from Herod’s plans. In some cases, He may warn us so that we know that God will bring us through a bad situation. In other cases it is simply for encouragement.

He spoke to Paul in a vision saying: "Do not be afraid; keep on speaking; do not be silent. For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city. So Paul stayed on for a year and a half, teaching them the word of God” (Acts 18:9, 10). This picture message kept Paul in that city for eighteen more months when he could have left out of the need to protect his life. So go ahead-- dream dreams and see visions. It’s the picture language of the Father.
