We all admit that God in ancient lear
times and under Bible dispensation ad- Divil
dressed the people through dreams. The sleet
question now is, does God appear in our
day and reveal himself through dreams? ing
This is the question everybody asks, sar
and that question this morning I shall Bral
try to answer. You ask me if I believe Asia
in dreams. My answer is, I do believe wail
in dreams, but all I have to say will be Isis
under five heads
Remark the first: The Scriptures are trei
so full of revelation from God, that if sant
we get no communication from him in mie
dreams, we ought, nevertheless, to be at s
With twenty guide books to tell you cro
how to get to Boston or Pittsburgh, or nun
London or Glasgow, or Manchester, do wre
you want a night vision to tell you ms
how to make the journey? We have in vin
this Scripture full direction in regard I
to the journey of this life, and how to jor
get to the calestial city, and with this per
grand guide book, this magnificent di ant
rectory, we ought to be satisfied. I nig
have more faith in a decision to which La
I come when I am wide-awake than ba
when I am sound asleep. I have no- ele
ticed that those who give a great deal opr
of their time to studying dreams get do
their brainsaddled. They are very anx- rat
ious to remembdr what they dreamed Go
about the first night they slept in a frc
new house. If in their dream they an
take the hand of a corpse, they are go di
ing to die. If they dream of a garden, ref
it means a sepulcher. If something ge
turns out according to a night vision, o'c
they say: "Well, I am not surprised. yo
I dreamed it." If it turns out different if
from the night vision, they say: "Well, w
dreams go by contraries." In their ef- pk
forts to put their dreams into rhythm, ls
they pat their waking thoughts into a
discord. Now, the Bible is so full of nu
revelation that we ought to be satis- of
fed if we get no further revelation. m
Sound sleep received great honor la
when Adam slept so extraordinarily t
that the snrtical incislon which gave ul
him Erve did not wake him: but there ki
Is no such need for extraordinary slum- t
ber now, and he who catches an Eve g
must needs be wide awake! No need a
of such a dream as Jaoob had with a
ladder against the sky, when ten thou- p
sand times it had been demonstrated a
that earth and Heaven are in communi- 1
cation. No such dream needed as that 11
which was given to:Abimelecb,warnlng a
him ·against an unlawful marriage, a
.i when we have the records of the coanty o
clerk's ofice. No need of such a dream
as was given to Pharaoh about the
seven years of famine, for now the I
seasons march in regular procession,
and ateamer and rail train carry bread
stauffs to every famine-stricknn nation. a
No need of s dream like that which en- a
eouraged Gideon, for all throughj
Christendomn it is announced and so
knowledged and demonstrated that I
righteousness sooner or later will get
the victory.
If there should come about a crisis
in your life upon which the Bible does
not sem to be sufaiciently speei , go
to God in prayer and you will get aspe
eil direction. I have more faith,
ninety-nine time outot a hundred in
directions given you with the Bible in
your lap and your thoughts uplifted in
prayer to God. than in all the informa
tion you will get uneselons on your
pjow. I ean very easly understand
