Divine intervention happens in many ways and for many reasons. In this case, Victoria received both a warning through a dream, and divine intervention through a dream. And after reading this, and chewing on it a bit, I can see that the Lord was at work on a few different levels in this account. You can connect to Victoria through her G+ account, and also I would like to encourage you to leave your comments below.
Divine Intervention through Dreams
I have had quite a few precognitive dreams, but this was the closest to my heart and it was the only time that a thing I saw beforehand was changed. I tried many times to change something I saw but aside from this one, where there was divine intervention, I never could.
When my oldest son, Tim, was two months old, I had a dream, as follows:
I was standing beside a small gravestone with the inscription: “Timothy Moore, Age one year. ” I was crying and my grandmother stood beside me. I asked her, “Oh, grandma, why do these things have to be this way?” she shook her head and replied, “I don’t honey. I just don’t know.”
This was the entire dream. I thought it was simply a bad dream and tried to dismiss it. But a couple of nights later, I had the same dream exactly, with the same words spoken, again. This began to bother me. But a few nights later, I had the same dream the third time! This time I got really upset and emotional. If I ever saw things in three’s it was sure to happen!
At the time my husband and I were living in Florida. I related the dream to him and he tried to console me. But I still worried about it, until I pushed it to the back of my mind.
Ten months later we moved to Tennessee, closer to his family. We found a cozy apartment in a very old Southern style home converted into apartments. It was a one bedroom and the bedroom had been formerly a porch. It was heated by a furnace in the basement. But having been a porch, there was no heating outlet in the bedroom.
Therefore, I put the crib in the dining room near an outlet, so if the blanket came off, the baby would still be warm. We got a job working together at the Greyhound Bus Station restaurant. My husband was made night manager and we both worked together at night.
One morning we had just got home and taken Tim from the babysitter. I had him sleeping daytime with our schedule. It was really cold and snowing so, I put an extra blanket on him and we all went to bed.
I could not sleep. I had a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach. If I ever have a foreboding such as this, I do not dismiss it. I have learned the hard way to listen to it…it means something! I thought and thought but couldn’t figure it out. Suddenly, the dream came to mind I had in Florida, when Tim was only a couple of months old.
“Oh No!” I thought. Tim just turned a year old! That must be it! But how?! I wondered. A fire?! There was no way to be sure. So I began to pray. I was a believer since a child, but I was not truly following Yeshua. I had a quite few unrepentant sins. But I believed in the power of prayer.
I don’t recall my words but I prayed with all my heart. But during prayer, the bad foreboding was still with me. So I prayed harder. I must have prayed about an hour, when I do still recall my words, because, after saying them, the foreboding left me. I had said, “If it is because of a sin I committed, I will pay for it, even if it takes the rest of my life! But please don’t take my son!!” The feeling gone, I knew my prayer was answered. And relieved I fell asleep fast.
As I slept I began to dream. I was dreaming we were at work and I was frying an egg for an order. Then, a strange thing happened. A man in a long white robe came out of the kitchen and walked up to me. “Come with me.” he said. I looked at him and replied that I would go but I had to finish the order. He said, “Come with me now! You must hurry!”
So I turned to follow him and the dream changed. We were in a forest and walking down a dirt road. We came to a fork in the road and he stopped. He looked at me and said, “I must leave you now.A choice has been given you as to which road you take, but you must hurry!”
As he turned to leave, I said, “No! please don’t go! I don’t understand. You keep saying I must hurry! Hurry for what?”
He turned back to me and said, “You must hurry because, your child’s life is at stake!”
Those words startled me awake! I thought, “Tim!” I got up and hurried into the dining room to check on him. There, I found him face down with the blankets tangled up around his head! I grabbed him up and took them off of him, but I saw that he was already turning blue, and not breathing! I shook him then, not knowing CPR I turned him upside down like a new born and slapped his back hard! He began to scream and turned from blue to red. I just sat and rocked him thanking God he was alive!
I took him to the bedroom and woke up Paul and we both thanked God for his grace. If not for God’s grace, who sent me Yeshua in the dream. It would have happened just as I saw it.
Observing the Dreams
This is an account from Victoria Bennett, and is what I would refer to as a personal type dream. Reason being is that it only involved herself and her son, and not a future event that would impact a large group of people. Let’s take a look at how the Lord did things here with Victoria.
She received the dream well ahead of time, and to insure she would not let it go by the wayside forever, he confirmed it by giving the same dream thrice. That is common with different things that the Lord does Biblically. If you do a little digging in the Word of God, you’ll see that things happening by three’s for a couple of reasons, but one of which is a means the Lord uses to confirm something.
In her description, it seems that she may have backslidden (please correct me if I’m wrong Victoria!) and started to do some wandering away from the Lord. Even still, the Lord caused for there to be an unction in her spirit of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit bothered her till the dream she had some time earlier came back into remembrance.
In my view, aside from the Lord granting a warning type dream, this act of the Holy Ghost causing the dream to come to her remembrance and quickening her spirit to prayer is in itself divine intervention. The dream about the diner and the Lord may not have happened otherwise, if her heart wasn’t in the right place to be receptive of what the Lord wanted to warn about.
What I take away from her dream walk with the Lord and the part where they wind up at a fork in the road are two different messages. First, I see the fork and having to choose a path was the Lord’s way of saying ‘fish or cut bait’ as far as her relationship with the Lord went at that time (again, if she was backslidden). Also, to compound meaning to it, represented the ramifications of her immediate actions concerning her child.
Second was to obviously wake her from her dream in time to save Tim. Were it not for the Lord, would she have woken to a completely silent emergency? Probably not. Another place of divine intervention. In the end, think of how all of these things worked together through time!
Again, I would like to thank Victoria Bennett for allowing me to post this message and for giving us a peek into her experiences concerning dreams from the Lord, and his willingness to intervene on her behalf!
