Preaching the Gospel to someone who has already died...Please help.

Post by redsongbird777 on Thu Aug 13, 2009 7:21 am

I have a recurring dream and as of late have been having the same dream over and over..



My father died 10 years ago. We had a very severed relationship due to the fact he was an alcoholic and emotionally abusive my whole life. I have forgiven him even before he died; however I was only cordial and distant to him at best.. I started to turn to Christianity around the time right before he died. I was a “baby” in faith at the time and did not share my faith with him as I was searching myself and unsure in my walk.



Anyway, the dream I keep having over the years is this…. My father is still alive but sick the way he was before he died. He was in a wheelchair in real life and in the dream..

It is present time (2009) and I am sitting speaking with him. I am giving him the message of Christ and telling him what he needs to do to be saved. I am holding his hand and preaching to him the gospel. .He is accepting the message..I am crying as I so happy for him..



I know in reality this could never happen as he died 10 years ago but yet I am having this dream over, and over again. As of the past few weeks I have had this dream almost night after night



Any insight would be a blessing …Thank you

maturity comes with time.
in the christian walk there are many sorrows and loneliness
but the Lord is always faithful
We are so used to judge things according to our senses
The Lord is always Merciful..We had heard that many times but sometimes we really did not understand to the extend the meaning of that.
That opportunity was giving to your Dad..even if that did not come from you.
Here is the Thing Let the dead to buried their dead.
Be a faithful witness someone is in need of your word.
Open your mouth and spread the word to those close and dear to you .
The conditions are set for them to accept Jesus .

I think yourr dream comes from actually what is going on in your soul. you are actually feeling guilty. please donot feel guilty.
The Heavens declare the the glory of God..In our subconciousness all men Know that God exsist because he has put eternity in our hearts...

If we seek him, we will find him..If we seek him with all our hearts.
continue to witness to the living..that is most important assingment God has given you right now..be blessed

My thoughts too, just wondering if you have a hard time forgiving yourself for not sharing with your Dad.
If that would be the case I would think the dream is letting you know that you yourself need to accept the forgiveness for missed opportunity and that this dream is letting you know that it is okay to move on.

I completely agree with Dreamster here. The Lord new that in your young maturity with him you were not ready to do that yet and made provisions for it. Remember when Jesus died, he died that we would be free from shame, condemnation and guilt. Walk into it and know that you are free from it all and that is why you had the dream.

Romans 8: 1-4

1) There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit.
2) For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
3) For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh.
4) That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romans 8: 28

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are Called according to His purposes.

Love in Jesus,

Connie huggins


~Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Himand He will direct your path.~ Proverbs 3:5-6

DelMonico's is in the financial district near Wall Street. I believe it has been around since the early 1900's.. Really nice place! Makes you feel like you are back in 1912,,,. Peter Luger is laid back and has saw dust on the floors like you are in the Wild West..They are both terrific :)
