    "A couple months ago I closed my eyes, not asleep, just relaxing, when suddenly, I saw a light grey background and a voice, said to me "I am god" and I felt a tremendous fear in me form all the power that is god. But I recalled the scripturs, and Jesus said many times to not be afraid. When I recalled that the fear left me, and I saw the vision. I was Bowing, I looked up to my right and saw the buring bush, I look up forward and saw moses. His back to me, but I could see him holding the tablets. And great thunder clouds with a bolt of lighting coming out of it. At first very much like how lighting acts, then the closer it got to the stones it acted more like a finger writing the law in stone. Then I awoke."

    He did not give any instruction.

    Now, I have never figured out what things like this mean. I have found favour in God's eyes to be allowed to see this. But I do not know what to do with such things besides share them. Your thoughts?

    What God showed you has symbolic meaning. He is showing you to follow his commandments.
    No matter what God shows us, the basic truth is we are SERVENTS OF GOD and as such i would advise all who seek Gods Will to speak two words at the end of your prayers [ USE ME ] and He will.

    Over the years I have found many times that what the Lord shows us in visions & dreams is personal instruction, but the Lord has infinite wisdom so the word could speak to others as well when you share it if you feel peace about doing so.
    I'm actually sensing that this could be a call to Holiness in your life. Are there things you need to rid yourself of? God is an awesome God & cannot tolerate an ounce of sin in His presence. So He could be telling you be Holy as I am...in Christ so I can have a deeper fellowship with you...But only you are the one that truely knows:)

    Well, I don't know what to shed really. I already follow the commandments the best that I can. I've helped others even to my own detrament, I've helped others when most wouldn't. I just find it intersting that I've seen all these differnt things, and yet no instruction.
    I strive to have faith as a child.

    Cause I've also seen Christ in person, but that was a under a differnt cerumstance.

    Well I once read something like "god sends people through much trouble in order stamp out evil in the heart." From either proverbs or essclatics. He's beating or done much forging to me.

    The combination of what you have been shown may very well tell you what you are to do, whats Gods will for you. the first step would be to interperp what you have been shown. just as each vision has many parts there is usually one message. many times many visions each with a message lead to one message. let me give you an example. i have seen that you have been reading the Rev. thread. God started showing me different visions over a 4 year period each with a message each different and with different meanings. but till i was lead to study Rev. i did not know that they were all interwoven into one revalation, one message. There is no doubt God is guiding you, you and i both no not everyone has been shown what you have seen. so you know you are being guided towards something. you are no doubt being groomed to serve even more than you already have. you just have to figure out what that message is. God gives us these mysterys so we will spend time with Him studying His Word praying for answers, helping one another. you know which visions--dreams stand out to you the greatest start out with one and get its meaning figured out then move to the next and then the next and when you are finsihed put it all together and you may very well figure out just what God is trying to tell you. what you will see is the more you study the more you pray the more TIME you spend trying to figure it out the more you are growing and thats what it is all about. Growing to the point to be able to serve the task God has set before you. Could take a year 4 years or 20 depending on your desire to seek Gods Will. use a concordance break down each dream-visions into each part that stands out including color. if you see a wall in your vision look at the concordance and find the word wall and read all its uses and there will be several meanings to each word. listen to the Holy Spirit He will let you know which meaning fits your dream when you read it you will just know it right. break down the whole dream this way and when finished you will have understanding and most of all God will have had your time. Do this for all you have been shown and when finished you will understand what God has for you to do. when you have trouble give a shout and help is here for you.

    This may also help you to think what the meaning is. Several two of us maybe even a third, on this forum were shown the walls and the city of Constinople before during and after its fall. these were very distinct visions which neither one of us knew where or why we were being shown. through prayer and study and guidence of the Holy spirit was the truth revealed. We were shown and witnessed the fall of the mystery City the harlet of Rev. so as to reveal Rev. Now the questian you should be asking and studying to find is why were you a witness to the giving of the law by God to Moses. i think if you will look at it like this it may help you to understand. i would also watch this forum to see if someone else has witnessed what you did my guess is you will not be alone. you need to find the other one that was shown what you were to confirm what you were shown keep your eyes open God will guide then to you just as God guided me to Dorf who to stood at the walls of Constinepole. This should keep you busy for a few years lol !!

    Sound advice, I'm taking it to consideration. But the law giving vision is not the greatest thing that the Lord has done for me. Just, well second to last vision, each stand out equally though.

    Jesus came to me in a dream, and said all I need to know is on these tapes, placed three down, then anouther one in front and at the end. I was able to watch the first one, but I can not re-gain access to the others now. Dang it, lol figures. Thats not the whole vision, but that was the gist of it, and the last one I recieved.

    Even all together they don't make sense, cause, I was allowed to acheive enlightenment twice, or what could be consider this. To bad, it doesn't work like one would imagine. Then the time frame of each one indepently, hmmm, maybe but I don't see it. lol, well time for new glasses then.

    Thank you for sharing.I'd say it is God confirming his existance,and showing that the law is indeed his.And that Moses did in fact receive it.

    That's interesting about the tapes:) I have a video about this African pastor that was dead 3 days & it was documented. He talks about receiving a notebook to write things down that he saw. When he regained consciousness the others there said he kept saying "my folders where are my folders? I need them".
    & I think he also mentions that he only would remember bits & pieces no matter how hard he tried.

    Sorry..thought what you saw reminded me of a vision I had in church one a.m. years ago. We were in worship & I saw myself barefoot & preparing to kneel down. Then the Lord told me to take off my shoes (real time), "bcause you are standing on Holy Ground".
