Two months ago, Isaac of Ninevah had a dream. As is his habit, he wrote it down and forgot about it. It wasn’t until one of our new Nepali friends had almost exactly the same dream that its significance became clear to us.
In Isaac’s dream, he was being chased and was shot by a gun. Our Nepali friend also was being chased in his dream, but escaped unhurt.
What makes the Nepali’s dream interesting is that we had prophesied to him that he would have a dream the first night we met them. I had initially said the dream would come to him within a week, but then felt impressed to change that to “within two weeks”. Sure enough, on about the 9th or 10th day he had this dream.
We met with 3 Nepalis the other night to discuss the significance of his dream. I told him that Isaac represented Jesus, who “took a bullet” and he “was rescued” in his dream and didn’t have to die. This Nepali Hindu has the New Testament in his own language that Isaac gave him.
God has so many weapons that He uses – first it was words of knowledge and healing for these Nepalis, then it was some prophetic words and then a dream. After the dream, we were able to interpret his dream.
Also the other night, God continued to release words of knowledge while we were with these men. While sitting there, I got a word for a left ear. One of them had a problem and we prayed for it. Another strong word came about a problem in the upper middle back. The 3rd guy had this problem. We prayed and he was healed.
One day the Lord opens the door amongst Muslims, then He brings Hindus and even last week we got to minister to Buddhists. Although these people don’t have a lot in common the means by which the Lord is touching their lives is much the same – through healing, through dreams and the prophetic gifts He is showing them that all power, all honor and all glory belongs to Him as He is establishing His Kingdom amongst the peoples of the earth.
