Hebrew 13-8: Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
Sometimes I wonder as true followers of Christ if some believers really believe his word for what it is. That thought alone has been pressing on my heart for several days. So I spent several hours searching Gods word to reassure you that God has never changed.
So if we truly believe that God never changed and is the same God now as he was then according to the bible, then you believe that God speaks through his people even today through dreams and visions. If you have a hard time believing that as a believer in Christ then you need to ask yourself why. As followers of Christ we will truly never receive all he has for us or really experience if for whom he truly is if we deny his power.

It struck the tent with such force that the tent overturned and collapsed. 14 His friend responded, “This can be nothing other than the sword of Gideon son of Joash, the Israelite. God has given the Midianites and the whole camp into his hands.” 15 When Gideon heard the dream and its interpretation, he bowed down and worshiped. He returned to the camp of Israel and called out, “Get up! The Lord has given the Midianite camp into your hands.”

Then he touched me and raised me to my feet. 19 He said: “I am going to tell you what will happen later in the time of wrath, because the vision concerns the appointed time of the end.

If you’re a believer and his word doesn’t convince you that he hasn’t changed and still speak to us in dreams and visions you need to pray that he reveal him self to you for who he truly is. This topic is more than real to me because I have experienced dreams that came true some being months later. God has given all of those who believe in him spiritual gifts, so let us stop denying his gifts.
