6. Does God still speak as He did in ancient times, that is, through visions, dreams and by making man hear His voice?

 

 

Yes, God still speaks to men as He did in ancient times, that is, through visions, dreams and by making man hear His voice. If it were not so, we could affirm that His ways are no longer the same, so we could say that He has changed and He is a different God from the One of the days of old. However, since God still reveals – on certain occasions – His will through visions, dreams and an audible voice, we can proclaim that His ways are still the same, they are exactly the same ways He used in ancient times to speak to men, and so He has not changed. To Him be the glory now and forevermore. Amen.

To show you from the Scriptures what I have just said, I quote what God said through the prophet Joel: “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions” (Joel 2:28), and the following words of Elihu: “For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man. He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword” (Job. 33:14-18).

There are countless testimonies of visions, dreams and revelations granted by God to believers and also to unbelieving people who afterward were converted to Christ.

Therefore, don’t be deceived by those who teach that God has ceased speaking through visions, dreams and revelations. Their teaching is unscriptural: they lie against the truth.
