1Timothy 2:3-4 says, "For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."

There is a God who is interested in our betterment. He wants every person to be saved and to know the truth. In this world there are so many opinions and philosophies, but those may not lead us toward the truth. When Jesus stood before Pontius Pilate, there was the accusation against Jesus that He claimed Himself to be King of the Jews. So Pilate asked Jesus, "Are you a king then?" as we read in John 18:37, "Pilate therefore said to Him, "Are You a king then?" Jesus answered, "You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice." When Pilate heard all these things He asked another question to Jesus in John 18:38, "What is truth?"

Here is a man who was so confused and perplexed and could not recognize that the very truth, the very creator who made this world, who knew everything, who proclaimed all His life that, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me" was standing in front of him. The almighty God was in front of him but he could not recognize him. He could not understand that the very truth was standing in front of him.

But the Bible tells us that 'the truth' is none other than Jesus Christ Himself, who is none other than God Himself. He said in John 8:32, "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

Now the question is that, "How can a person know the truth or how can a person know God?" Bible tells us that the easiest way is simply to come to Jesus, repent from your sins and accept Him as your Lord and Savior. When you do that, you will be united with God and you will become a child of God as we read in John 1:12-13, "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God."

And when you are a child of God, you are entitled to enjoy everything that heaven has to offer. Jesus told His disciples to wait for Holy Spirit which is also called the "Spirit of truth" in John 14:17, "the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you."

The disciples waited for Holy Spirit and the Bible tells us that they got filled with the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost as we read in Act 2:1-4, "When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance."

Today also God wants to fill us with the Spirit of Truth and to lead us in all truth. Some people when they are born again, they think that they have got everything that heaven had to offer but no, there is much more! Don't settle for less but always desire for great things and expect great and mighty things from God.

If you want to see what happened after the disciples of Jesus received the Holy Spirit, you need to read the book of "Acts of Apostles". In a few words, their lives never remained the same. They became dynamic and miracles and wonders followed in their ministry. One word of Peter and John made the lame to walk. Even when the shadow of Peter fell on the sick they got recovered. When the handkerchief of Paul was laid on the sick, they were healed.

God is calling you and me to reach to the heights and just not to stay satisfied with only the born again experience but know the truth and receive the Spirit of Truth.

Dreams - Current News bulletin from Heaven

By Sheela Isaac

Dreams and Visions might look offensive for some people but it is biblical. If you read Bible, you'll find that God spoke to people through dreams and it was very common with the people of God. Through out the Bible, God spoke to people and to prophets through dreams and visions and it is not something alien or mysterious. Numbers 12:6, "Then He said, “Hear now My words: If there is a prophet among you, I, the LORD, make Myself known to him in a vision; I speak to him in a dream." People have serious doubts, thinking, “Does God still speak through dreams?” I would like to say, "YES". He is an unchanging God. He spoke in Old Testament days, He spoke in New Testament days and He still speaks through dreams because God's nature and character didn't change.

I love gardening and it was becoming a trap point. Some of the people knew about this hobby and they tried to take advantage of it. It was on May 2009 when our garden season started. At that time my brother, sister, mom and I saw similar dreams. All these dreams had one common point that, "I went out in my garden and then never returned back." It was a scary dream. After her dream my mom said not to go out in to the garden anymore. My sister said, throwing away life for the sake of garden doesn't make any sense. So I understood that it was a very serious warning that God had given and that's why four people saw the same type of dream. You can't sacrifice your life for nothing since I wanted to pursue and finish the ministry and to fulfill the call which is upon my life. So I thought, “let the plants wither and perish and let me stay away from my garden.” I prayed seriously to know what God had to say about it. God said, "You can still do the garden and He gave me few keys to avoid any kind of danger." The main thing Lord said was, "never step out of your door without prayer and knowing My will." So I tried to follow it very strictly and I could do my garden without any problem.

Jesus is so good. Isn't He? He loves His own. That's why He brings dreams to inform about the plans that are being hatched in the enemy's camp and what enemy's next move is. To tell in advance of those plans, God shows dreams and it comes as current news. It amazes me that these dreams come when the enemy's plans are just in the initial planning stage. Jeremiah 29: 11-12, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you."

In the past there were times when people used to come and bang at our doors and windows. It happened on a regular basis. Even people came around in the evenings round about 8 pm, and late around 11pm and even around 12 at mid night and 1 am at night time. Living under such conditions doesn't look easy. But we lived peacefully because of Jesus. Well because He is in our boat we enjoyed our times and could hold our peace and happiness.

The past 7-8 months were peaceful in our lives as no one came and banged at our doors or windows. 2010 garden season came and it brought great expectations. I felt very relaxed and happy thinking that all is well and I thought about some serious gardening. It was on March 2010 when I was thinking about my garden then I saw a dream. The dream was, "my brother sister and I, (we three), were standing just outside our front door and we were doing something in our flower pots. I saw a man sitting on a bench just near by our front gate hardly twenty feet away. In real there is no bench there though. I heard in the dream, "Don't get so relaxed thinking all is over." As soon as he saw us, he stood up and walked toward us. I told, “he is coming let's get inside.” So we three got inside our home. Then I looked from my bedroom window in my dream and he had two guns in both his hands and he looked very furious and was shooting and yelling and shouting something. Then I saw a few more things and the dream ended."

I shared this dream with my family but didn't think much about it. The very same week my sister and I went out to look at the newly sprouting seedlings. As we stood there may be for two three minutes a man from the front apartment came out in his balcony and started looking. Then he sat down on a chair there. It was a pretty cold chilly day so we didn't have a mood to stay there longer and so we got inside. The next week the same thing was repeated. I just went out and stooped to look at the seedlings and even before I could see the seedlings the same man was out. My sister said, "hey he is out again lets get in." When I was walking toward my front door I saw by then he was sitting there and looking. We got inside I looked out from my window to see what he was up to and then I figured out his weird behavior. He was sitting on a chair facing toward our front door and in front of him was a long table and when you look at it, it gave an impression as a bench. He was sitting there ducking his head behind the rails of the balcony and after every few minutes he would raise his head and look toward our front door and then duck his head and sit. He sat there for around twenty minutes in the same fashion. I told my brother to look and my brother looked and said, "It is not a normal behavior." Then I started pondering over it thinking, "why this man is coming out every time." Suddenly something clicked inside me, "is he the man I saw in my dream sitting on a bench."

Then I prayed to figure out and the Lord said, "Yes, he is." When I came to know it, my heart froze and I knew right away that our freedom has been robbed from us." Then the real ordeal began. He and his wife would be sitting turn by turn and watching and it went on and on. Many more weird things we noticed and we knew for sure that he is after us. Some times he looked very restless walking there and smoking and looking at our door. He looked pretty dangerous at those times. How God brings dreams and how he shows the things before hand it is really amazing. Who doesn't want to love Jesus who is so good.

One more dream I remember came exactly true. One time this man (probably hit man) went for two weeks vacation and he was not there. I was relaxed and happy at least that no one was coming out when we stepped out of our front door. Then I saw another dream. I saw that lots of school bag style bags were kept piled up in his front door. And in my dream I thought, "oh no he is back that also on Sunday." Then I saw in my dream a person well known to me and in the dream I asked her, "you know this man so what is his name?" She dodged the question and didn't say anything. I kept asking her the same question in my dream and then she admitted that she knew him. The dream ended. Surprisingly that day was Sunday and that evening this man returned back and he had many bags as I saw in my dream.

If you look in the Bible you'll find that God spoke to many of them through dreams. Mathew chapter 2 is the good example of it. Joseph who was the father of Jesus seeing many dreams and God was warning him from the coming dangers. Mathew 2:13, When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. "Get up," he said, "take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him." Verse 16-18 says that Herod did kill the children under two of that region and because of this dream baby Jesus' life was spared. Then Joseph saw another dream and he knew that it was the time to return back to his native land. Mathew 2: 19-20, "After Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt and said, "Get up, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel, for those who were trying to take the child's life are dead." Again we find in verse 22 that God again warned Joseph through another dream and that was why he went and lived in a town called Nazareth.

God still speaks through dreams and you can have such dreams that could save your life and preserve you. You can know God's will through dreams if you are filled with the Holy Spirit.
