Hi guys,
I know I haven't been on for a while... it's because a lot of things have been happening and getting on the computer was the last thing that crossed my mind. Hopefully I'll be able to get on more.

I really need your guys help... For a few months now my little brother (he is 10) has been having some prophetic dreams... the things he dreams always come true... now it's not like seriouse stuff... it's mainly like. "I had a dream that grandma was gonna buy a porch swing." and then it will happen. The thing is, is that he came right up to me and said ", I think I have dreams about the futer" This made me speachless cuz my parents are HUGE Christians.... I just dont know what to do. andy help would be great.

That's cool Moonlit. If I were you, I'd just let him keep telling me his dreams and let him know that it's alright to have dreams like that. If you get your parents involved and they are the kind of Christians that aren't into that type of stuff (or think it's demonic), then they will probably tell him it's all fake and he might shut down that part of his mind. And you wouldn't want that because it would be cool to have a brother who can tell the future. You might just want to keep it between you and him and support him as much as you can and tell him that it's normal so he's not scared.

I absolutley agree with . You should also get him to start a dream journal, then you could both go over his dreams and try to interperet them. I think that would encourage him to have these dreams, and he would also learn a great geal on how to understand his dreams.

If I had him keep a dream journal I would have to have him hide it somewhere in his room where my parents wouldn't find it cuz I dont think they would allow him to keep one.

I used to always hide my journal inbetween my mattresses, that or up in the vent in my room, or the tile (we had those tiles that are cheap and crumble when they get old). I also hid one out in the barn cuz she never went out there, it was an old barn, and it had stray cats living in it.. I tamed them pretty quick, but I have always had a knack with animals. Anyways that's getting off the subject... I am sure I could think of other sneaky little places for you later.

I was just wondering why you think your parents wouldn't let him keep a dream journal. People have dreams, it's normal, in the Bible, people had dreams. Your parents shouldn't think of a dream journal as something witchy or...demonic. Steven King keeps a dream journal..that's how he gets most of his book ideas. Umm..I've had to keep a dream journal for science classes. Perhaps if your brother simply expressed to your parents that he wanted to keep a dream journal to help his imagination and creativity, they should be totally cool with that. And if worse comes to worse, which I don't think it would. You go ahead and hide it, like you suggested.

It's just that they believe that dreams mean nothing. They are just like something that happens when you sleep that is caused by events that happend throughout the day or by things you are thinking. They would tell him that it was bad and that its stupid to have a journal just for dreams. They believe in the Bible but they say that profetic dreams are like form the old Testament and that it doesnt happen anymore.. if it does its from satan.... Messed up I know.

Wow, that is pretty messed up. lol. It's hard for me to understand Christians who believe that things like prophecy only happened in Biblical times and not today.

Because the Bible says that the age of miracles is over. When the New Testament was finished (therefore..the Bible was finished) God believed that there was no longer a need for miracles in the sense of humans performing them. (I'm not saying that miracles don't happen in one form or another...I think they do.) At any rate, that's basically why. I could go into more detail, but I think you get the jist.

Hi Xeno,

The churches I were involved with always preached just the opposite, that miracles have happened all through time. I would really like to hear more about this, and if there is somewhere in the Bible that says that the age of miracles is over, please tell me about it. I'm looking through Google for info, but basically all I'm seeing is some people who say, "Although some might say 'the age of miracles is over', that's not true and here's the proof..." That's basically the kind of stuff I'm finding on the net so far. Like you, I believe in miracles as well. But I had no idea there was Biblical doctrine that said that miracles no longer occurred. They certainly occurred while Jesus was here, and that was in the New Testament. I realize it's a matter of opinion (certainly on a pagan board) whether Jesus actually performed miracles. But from a Christian point-of-view, is there any doctrine that says that the age of miracles is over? (That was my search phrase, and apparently many people use that same phrase - "the age of miracles".) I'm not trying to challenge you. I really just want to learn more about what you're saying. Don't worry about boring the other people here. They don't have to read it. I like talking about the Bible.

As all of you know I have an enormous fondness for Google so I Googled the phrase "Biblical references to the age of miracles". I hit on a very informative website that might interest at least a couple of you.

http://www.christiancourier.com/archives/miracles.htm

It discusses biblical references to miracles and ...in my opinion....almost dismisses them after the passing of the apostles. Apparently, they were gifted with the Holy Spirit by Christ which caused them also to perform miracles. Anyway.......thats the website.
