Q. I am a born again Christian and have been since 1988. I have been given a gift but no one has been able to tell me what it is. Maybe you can help.
God shows me things that are either going to happen after he has taken his own away, or sometimes things that will happen in a few hours or a few days.
I have asked many pastors and people who know the Bible about where mine fits? What can one call this gift that I have?
Oh, and this gift only it works when God wants it to, and not on a regular basis, just every once in a great while. Its’ like I`m watching a movie in my head, but am awake while doing other thing like house work or taking a walk. I just stop when it happens until it ends. So what would you call this?
A. From your description, it sounds like the Lord gives you visions periodically. This is most likely a form of the gift of prophecy described in 1 Cor. 12 & 14. Peter mentioned dreams and visions associated with the gift of prophecy in Acts 2:17-21.
If this is truly a gift from the Lord, then the near term visions He gives you will all come to pass. It’s His way of promising you that the long term ones will come true as well. You should write them all down as they come to you and keep track of the outcomes to confirm that it’s His gift to you.
