Acts 2:17
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

Joel 2
28 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:

1 Corinthians 12
12 Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. 2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. 3 Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, "Jesus be cursed," and no one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit.

4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,[a] and to still another the interpretation of tongues.[b] 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.

I myself have had dreams, visions, tongues, word of knowledge and distinguishing between spirits. I'm well aware of the division of theories and the people who believe the spirit is not for today, but is anyone here into these aspects? I've been around the religious block many times, I'm well informed of the different views, just curious if any other believers here relate to these verses.

I don't get religious dreams but spiritual visions and prophesies. Joel, remember, is the one who reversed Isaiah's famous words about changing swords into plowshares and spears into pruninghooks. That reversal took away all the spiritual meaning of Isaiah's words so that God had to reestablish the real meaning plainly this time which one can see in the Sword of Peace, Saif al Salam, Paxcalibur.

Prophesies when they come true always come true in ways believers least expect.

Yeah I have noticed that some, the way God moves is very unique and distinct.

May I ask what your beliefs are?

Yes, you may. My beliefs are outrageously revolutionary but true nonetheless since God is with me, this I know, 'cause the Celestial Torah tells me so..

I believe I have the gift of knowledge, meaning that I have divine revelation of God's will and truth.
