Christ – The Dream Come True

 

“But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins” – (Mt.1:20,21).

“When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him” – (Mt.27:19).

 

   Dreams are in the Bible 121 times – 113 in the O.T. and 8 in the N.T. Not all dreams came from God and God’s prophets, some came from Satan and his false prophets as Satan deceives through false dreams. Satan also uses the secular soul Dr’s (psychiatrists- psych means soul) to give people interpretation of dreams. Sigmond Freud gave lectures on dreams and he wrote a book entitled “Interpretation of Dreams.” He used dreams as a key (supposedly) to unlock the secrets of human personality. Dr’s need to minister to the flesh and let God take care of the soul.

 

   Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of all godly dreams in the Bible. Jesus Christ is the O.T. dreams come true in the N.T. Everything else, especially the Antichrist, is a Satanic counterfeit. In the beginning of the N.T. we have four dreams by Joseph, the foster father of Jesus, during the time of Christ’s birth as the wrath of Satan came against Christ. In (Mt.1:20) the angel appeared to him in a dream and gave him the name Jesus (Savior). The virgin birth of God’s Son was explained to him and fulfilled God’s Word – (Is.7:14). Joseph receives another dream to flee into Egypt so that King Herod couldn’t murder baby Jesus – (Mt.2:13). He has another dream in Egypt instructing him to return to Israel because Herod was dead – (Mt.2:19-21). And when he arrived in Israel he has another dream that instructs him to dwell in his former hometown of Nazareth – (Mt.2:22). The wisemen were also warned by a dream to go home another way rather than to return to Herod – (Mt.2:12). All these dreams at the birth of Christ shows us that the Lord Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of all godly dreams. He’s the dream come true for planet earth.

 

   Just before Pilate passed the sentence of death upon innocent Christ, his wife sent a note unto him telling him she suffered in a dream about Christ and to have nothing to do with that just man – (Mt.27:19). “In a dream… when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumbering 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 in man” – (Job 33:15-17). But Pilate took no warning from his wife’s dream. There were dreams at the birth and death of Christ because Christ is the dream come true.

 

   Abraham’s grandson Jacob had a dream at Bethel as he lay upon his stone pillow – “And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending upon it.” And God said – “in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed” – (Gen.28:12,14). And (Gal.3:16) tells us that seed that blesses both Jews and Gentiles is Christ. Christ tells us that this dream is fulfilled in Him – (Jn.1:51). Christ is the only way to heaven, He is the ladder to heaven. He is the precious cornerstone of the ‘house of God’ – (Bethel). Jesus is the dream come true“And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life” – (I Jn.2:25). Salvation and eternal life in Christ is the dream come true.

 

   Joseph the dreamer, whose life covers ¼ of Genesis shows us Christ in dozens of ways. There is no one in Scripture who is more like Christ in his person and experiences than Joseph. He had dreams from God and interpreted the dreams of Pharoah and Pharoah’s brother and baker. In (Gen.37) Joseph’s first two dreams were about his family and Joseph one day reigning over them and them bowing down to him and even the heaven bowing down to him. His dream came to pass when he became second ruler in Egypt and his brethren bowed down before him. But it finds it’s greater fulfillment when Christ comes back as King of Kings over the whole earth (Rev.19:11-21) and the heaven and earth shall bow down and worship Him – “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of  things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth” – (Philip.2:9,10).

 

   It’s not happenstance that the earthly father of Jesus was named Joseph and had four dreams when the Lord Jesus was born and fled into Egypt like O.T. Joseph. Jesus is a much, much greater king than Joseph. When Emperor Jesus comes back and reigns over earth forever, those of us who have been saved by Him will rule and reign with Him. O yes, PTL Jesus, He’s our dream come true. O.T. Joseph’s dreams pointed to Christ and so N.T. Joseph had dreams concerning Christ when the dream come true was born.

 

   The prophet Daniel is another godly dreamer. He had dreams of his own and like Joseph he interpreted the King’s dream (Dan.2 and 4). In (Dan.2) King Nebuchadnezzar dreamed of a multi-metallic image with a head of gold and breast and arms of silver and belly and thighs of brass and legs of iron and feet of iron and clay. This image stands for all the antichrist pretenders and emperors who desire the power and riches and glory of ruling over the whole world in place of Christ. Such human antichrist pretenders as the rulers of Babylon and Media-Persia and Greece and Rome and the empire of Antichrist himself soon to come. The image also stands for image worship of these emperors.

 

   But King Nebuchadnezzar dreamed of Jesus’s second coming in power and glory with His army of saints from heaven to conquer Antichrist and His armies at Armageddon also in (Dan.2). “Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them in pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever” – (Dan.2:34,35,44). The Lord Jesus Christ, the precious cornerstone of the Church, comes back as the smiting stone to set up the kingdom of God on earth. He destroys Antichrist (feet of iron and clay) and He rules from the mountain of the Lord’s house in Mt. Zion in Jerusalem over the whole earth forever. And we shall rule and reign with Him – (Dan.7:18,27). Yes, Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of Bible dreams – He’s the dream come true. He’s the fulfillment of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream.

 

   It is written of Nebuchadnezzar the dreamer – “And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream” – (Dan.2:3). ‘King’ is in (Dan.2) 16 times and ‘dream’ 17 times. We have had another king who said ‘I have a dream’ in our U.S. – M.L. King. And now we have another dreamer named Obama who has a presidential dream. They are talking about a presidential dream ticket with Obama and Clinton. They are saying that Obama’s run for president is making blacks dream big again. They are saying that Obama is the fulfillment of M.L. King’s dream speech. They are saying he is the embodiment of the American dream. Obama the dreamer has written two books about his dreams: ‘Dreams from my Father’ and ‘The Audacity of hope: thoughts on reclaiming the American Dream.” Obama desires to become president of the greatest throne on earth today, the U.S. Empire which rules over the earth. His dream could very well become the world’s nightmare.

 

   In his book ‘Dreams from my Father,’ he tells of his trip to Kenya, Africa and of his search for his father’s family and of his evil, satanic dreams. He talks about his grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama, who was a farmer and a medicine man with healing powers. We Christians know that a medicine man is a sorcerer, a witch doctor who heals with satanic power. Obama asks his sister ‘What are night runners?’ “They’re like warlocks,” Anna said, “spirit men.” At night they take on the shape of leopards and speak to animals. The most powerful night runners can leave their bodies and fly to far away places. Or hex you with a glance.

 

   And so Obama tells us about his evil dream. “I finally fell asleep, and dreamed I was walking along a village road… But as I went farther along, I began to notice that people were looking behind me fearfully rushing into their huts as I passed. I heard the growl of a leopard and started to run into the forest, tripping over roots and stumps and vines, until at last I couldn’t run any longer and fell to my knees in the middle of a bright clearing. Panting for breath, I turned around to see the day turned night, a giant figure looming as tall as the trees, wearing only a loincloth and a ghostly mask. The lifeless eyes bored into me, and I heard a thunderous voice saying only that it was time, and my entire body began to shake violently with the sound as if it were breaking apart.” Every born again Christian knows that this was an evil dream straight out of hell. We know the Antichrist Beast is mostly like a leopard except for a mouth like a lion and the feet of a bear “…and the dragon (Satan) gave him his power and his seat, and great authority” – (Rev.13:2).

 

   Perhaps ‘it was time’ for Antichrist to come and rule for a time, times, and half a time in these end times from the seat of the greatest authority on earth, the White House. This took place when he was 21 years old in 1983, 25 years ago and now he’s running for the presidency. Another president Hussein may soon rule over modern-day Babylon (Iraq) as dictator like Nebuchadnezzar. Not Sadaam Hussein, but Barack Hussein Obama. If Obama became president, he would automatically be ruler over Babylon (Iraq) which we have conquered like a beast upon a week prey, not in self defense but in selfish offense.

 

   First comes Satan’s imitation of Christ the dream come true, with his Antichrist dreamer. All the unsaved will worship him and receive his mark in their foreheads, or their right hands. They will believe he is Christ, the American dream come true, a black president of the U.S. They will believe like M.L. King said ‘I have a dream’ and that the U.S. is about to cast off it’s last vestiges of racism, elect a black president, and become a light unto the world, leading it to world peace and safety. But they will be deceived by Satan and it leads to Armageddon instead where Christ, who is God’s dream come true for planet earth, returns to defeat the Beast and rule over a worldwide kingdom of righteousness and peace.

 

   Don’t follow the dreams of fallible men – follow the Word of God’s Son. Christ already told us how to solve racial problems: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. And the second is like unto it, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself” – (Mt.22:37,39). Jesus Christ came down to earth to solve man’s greatest problem – sin and God’s judgment upon sin which is death. And that’s what the death, burial and resurrection of Christ is all about. You can conquer your death and have eternal life – “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life” – (I Jn.5:11,12). Repent of your sins and believe on Christ in your heart by faith and you will receive forgiveness of sin and become a new born again, saved creature in Christ. Eternal life is no dream, it’s an absolute certainty and it comes by faith in Christ.

 

Jesus Christ is the dream come true.

Be a part of His dream – be saved and worship Him.

All idols have feet of clay.
