Does the Lord Reveal Himself in Dreams?

“I hear that Muslims are getting saved after being visited by Christ in a dream. Does the Lord reveal Himself in dreams today?”

God spoke to men in dreams in past dispensations, but now that the Bible is complete, He speaks only through His Word.

If these stories were true, it would give unsaved men an excuse when they are sentenced to the lake of fire for their sins (Rev. 20:12-15). They could rightly argue, “It’s not fair. The Lord never visited me in a dream. If He had, I would have believed too.”

But we know that unsaved men will have no excuse in that day, for it is still true that “the heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handywork” (Psa. 19:1). The testimony of God’s creation reaches all men (v. 2-6) and is enough to leave men “without excuse” to not “seek the Lord” and “feel after him, and find Him” (Acts 17:27; Rom. 1:20).

To the Reader:

Some of our Two Minutes articles were written many years ago by Pastor C. R. Stam for publication in newspapers. When many of these articles were later compiled in book form, Pastor Stam wrote this word of explanation in the Preface:

"It should be borne in mind that the newspaper column, Two Minutes With the Bible, has now been published for many years, so that local, national and international events are discussed as if they occurred only recently. Rather than rewrite or date such articles, we have left them just as they were when first published. This, we felt, would add to the interest, especially since our readers understand that they first appeared as newspaper articles."

To this we would add that the same is true for the articles written by others that we continue to add, on a regular basis, to the Two Minutes library. We hope that you'll agree that while some of the references in these articles are dated, the spiritual truths taught therein are timeless.
