Visions, dreams and revelations



2. Can the Lord, through a dream or a vision, show where the souls of the dead are?




Yes, He can. In the days of the apostles He allowed John to see the souls of those who had been killed for Jesus’ sake. Here is what he wrote in the book of Revelation: “And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled” (Revelation 6:9-11).

In our days, God has permitted some widowers to see their wife in heaven or in the glory in order to comfort them. God has also permitted some believers to see some souls who are in Hades (Hell). Many years ago a young brother told me that his father (who is now dead) one day had a vision in which an angel of the Lord took him to Hades and showed him the souls of the dead who were suffering dreadful torments, and among those souls he saw the souls of those who fell in the second world war. Among the brotherhood in the world many have had similar experiences.
