John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Why don't my Guns Work in my Dreams?

This is weird, over many years in my dreams (sleeping)  I had a gun to defend myself, but they never work. Am I the only one having these type of dreams, and why?

You too? I am plagued with these exact scenarios! I squeeze the trigger but no matter how hard the gun won't fire. In contrast very rarely I do have dreams when the gun works and they turn to a John Wick scene when I go into a killing frenzy. The dreams I hate the most are when terrorist types guys are hacking me, slicing me with knives. I can feel the burning of cuts and slices but I can't defend myself. I roar back you can't kill me! A lot of times the dream actually ends because in the dream I turn to Jesus praying for deliverance.

I never dreamed anything like that.  Maybe because, being a former Alaskan, I was accustomed that, when I pulled the trigger, something always happened.

Hahaha... Maybe the Lord is telling you to rely on your faith rather than guns. I really have no fear of losing my life since turning back to Jesus.

 

We were barely into Oakland still living in the van when we went to eat at a mission meal downtown. We were parked in the park and walked to the mission. We had my 14 year old step daughter with us and these lowlifes kept looking at her and talking among themselves.

 

Of course, we became concerned. so did the mission director, which decided he was going to give us a ride back to our van, but didn't tell us. When we finished ,he was busy with some other folks. We went outside and saw those men talking on the corner. Suddenly, one of them says something and they all scramble off. We went into the BART subway station to make a telephone call and the mission director came looking for us thinking the worse. Needless to say, when we went back he was relieved we were okay.

 

I think the Lord put some other thing on their minds so they would leave us alone. I noticed this happened more than once during my mission days. Many times I had to walk by crack dealers, to get home, while I was training in Berkeley for computers. The buses didn't run down 85th Street late at night. I always felt like the Lord was present, during these times, and didn't fear like when I grew up in Watts as a child.    :RpS_thumbsup:

Maybe the guns won't fire because:

Quote: I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya,

I fully agree. I've always felt that I could never become a victim of a violent crime while I was fully given to the Lord's will. And really did not need a gun . Depending on His all sufficiency was all I needed .      M

Act 7:58  And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul.  Stephen is not the only example of Christians dying a violent death. John the  Baptizer .Thousands of others.  

Is any form of protection proper for a Christian?  If so why? We protect against the weather the cold, the heat.  Are immunizations a from of protection and there for a sign of not trusting the Lord ? Auto and health insurance?

This fact leads me to suspect that Satan is attacking you through your dreams.

The answer to this question is found in Deuteronomy 22:8, “When you build a new house, you shall make a parapet for your roof, that you may not bring the guilt of blood upon your house, if anyone should fall from it."  God expects us to foresee dangers and take steps to avoid them.
