Dreams & Visions
Pastor Jim’s New Book
There’s A Sweet, Sweet Spirit
“Most of the young people today have secret lives. There’s a whole secret society that, if parents knew, you would curl up and die. That’s why we need the grace of God to raise our children today.” -Pastor Jim Bakker
“God will turn your mess into a message.” – Pastor Jim Bakker
Pastor Jim und Lori Bakker were joined by students Zach Drew, Sasha Volz and James Chapman as the Pastor kicked off a series on Revelation 13. Some scholars, sagte er, proclaim the chapter the most important one in the Bible’s last book. He went on to explain he plans to compare the symbols and meanings of that chapter to those found in Daniel 7. Both the Old Testament prophet and John the Revelator received visions and dreams from God that had great significance.
The same God, Pastor Jim declared, wants to give his people today special messages through their dreams and visions. He and Lori told of visions they had before they ever met. Hers took place shortly after the time when she gave her life completely to the Lord while his occurred while he was in prison. Interessanterweise, their visions both involved sandy, beach settings and large oceans, the same setting in which the Apostle John received his vision of Revelation.
Lori said in her vision she was told to look out at the ocean. She saw millions of people and was told one day she would stand and tell millions about abortion and become involved in the mission of saving babies.
Pastor Jim shared that in his dream he saw New Orleans under water and also saw a house on a beach, the front of which was like a chest of drawers available for anyone to pull out and see the contents. Upon entering the house, he said the entire back was removed and he saw a wide expanse of ocean before him. He later learned through Bible study, that the word of God specifically states in Rev. 17:15 that the waters of visions and dreams represent peoples, multitudes, nations and tongues.
Zach Drew noted that the Bible interprets itself and Pastor Jim stressed the need for people to study the Word for themselves rather than relying on the interpretations and doctrines of men and women. He said that people will believe lies in the last days as they become wrapped up in deception, a state in which they think they know and believe the truth but have, stattdessen, latched onto lies. One of the most dangerous things about deception, Pastor Jim sagte, is that deceived people do not know they have been misled and sincerely think they are on the right path.
He empathized with those who have an aversion to reading the book of Revelation, but said the text must be read and studied over and over again in order to develop an understanding of it. To offer assistance, he announced that he is writing a book entitled “The Dragon, The Woman and The Child” and said it might be the most important book he’s ever written. It deals with the signs, symbols and meanings of Revelation and is scheduled for release in October.
