    The dreams that I dream-15-Look who's in control.



    One night in a dream, I saw myself driving a vehicle. It seemed to be a long journey and there were a lot of twists and turns on the way. I seemed to be enjoying the drive and was especially happy that I was at the controls, manouvering the vehicle in whatever way I wanted. After a while, I happened to look at my side and saw a father like figure with another set of brake, clutch and accelerator and He too was steering the vehicle. He was smiling at me and then I noticed that even when I did not use the steering, clutch, brake or accelerator, the vehicle headed in the right direction. The father like figure seemed to be indicating to me that it was he who was in control and not me. No doubt, I too had the needed equipment to go ahead, it was he who was leading and guiding me all along. And how true the dream is. Often we think that it is we ourselves who are doing all the manouvering in our journey towards our heavenly destination, but the fact is that God himself is guiding us all along, seeing to it that we reach our goal with the help of the Holy Spirit.

    The dreams that I dream-14-“Bind the strong man"



    In the early stages of my walk with Christ, whenever I sat for praying or reading the Word, I would feel extremely sleepy and start yawning. This became so evident that one day my wife commented about the same. It was then that I too realized that something was amiss and prayed about the same. I often wondered what the possible cause could be, but could not reach a conclusion. While I was experiencing this, one night I saw a dream. In the dream, a short white man was wrestling with an evil looking giant. The giant was overpowering the short white man who was trying desperately to escape him. Then I heard a voice in the dream say, “Bind the strong man and free yourself.” I woke up after seeing this dream at night and wondered what it meant. Later on the next day, as I sat for prayer and started yawning again, the Holy Spirit spoke to me in His still small voice and said, “Bind the strong man.” Instantly I realized what the dream was all about. The Lord was indicating that it was an evil spirit that was making me feel sleepy on sitting for prayer or when reading the Word and the deliverance could be achieved by rebuking the evil power. And that is exactly what I did. I immediately rebuked the evil spirit in Jesus’ Name and to tell you the truth, the deliverance was immediate. From then on, my times of prayer and Bible reading are a joy. Every morning I am able to spend around one and a half hours in worship, prayer and Bible reading. In my ministry, I have met several well meaning Christians who have had this same problem and perhaps a few of you reading this may have been experiencing the same ,but the message from the Lord to all such is the same, “Bind the strong man and free yourself.” [River Of God] [Doctor's Podcast]

    The dreams that I dream-13-You can't trick the Lord



    One day as I was finishing my work at the Clinic, my assistant informed me that someone from the vigilance department of the police wanted to see me urgently. I wondered what the cause was and asked my assistant to usher him in. After saying "Hello", I asked him what the reason for his coming was. He was reluctant to say much and proceeded to show me a letter that had been received by the vigilance department. I asked him what the letter was about and again hesitantly he stated that someone had sent a written complaint that I was ‘a quack’ and did not have the required qualifications for practicing Medicine. This made me smile and I told him amusedly that this was the 5th year that I was practicing after my post graduation in Medicine. He said that he had been enquiring the matter and knew that there was foul play involved but they couldn’t really pinpoint the culprit behind this. Anyway as this was considered as a serious offence, the Superintendent of Police had sent me a notice to appear before him on a set date with all my records. After he left me, I wondered who could have played such a trick on me, because I did not have any overt enemies in that place and never was any animosity shown towards me by any one in that place. That night I prayed to the Lord and asked for His guidance regarding the matter, all the while wondering who could have played such a trick. As I slept, I saw a dream. In the dream I am in an elevator with a man who works in a coffee shop near the Clinic. As we ride the elevator, this man smiles at me and says, "The police will never know that I wrote that letter." Waking up at night after the dream, I praised God for His faithfulness and asked the Lord why that man did so? In reply the Lord said that the man didn’t like the Gospel work that I did at the Clinic-distributing tracts and books and it was a sort of harassment that he had planned. I knew this man very well but did not go to confront him regarding the thing leaving the matter into the Lord’s hands. A few days later, early one morning, I traveled with my wife to the SP’s office to show him my records. It so happened that the SP was sick that day and as soon as I entered his office, he asked me to prescribe some medicine for his illness. He just glanced through my records and told me that he was sorry for the trouble, but he was just following regulations. I asked him whether they were able to catch the culprit but he just shook his head and said, "It’s not so easy." I felt like telling him that it would be easy if he could ask the Lord for some help, but just kept quiet knowing that he wouldn’t probably understand or appreciate what I said. As I said "Good Bye", he smiled and wished me the best. To end the story, I do not know for sure whether it was God’s way of avenging for what the fellow had done, but in a drunken brawl that week itself this man was stabbed and was hospitalized for quite some time. God is faithful in all His ways and He says, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." And His Word exhorts us in this way, "Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord. (Romans 12:17-19) [River Of God] [Doctor's Podcast]

    The dreams that I dream-12-An unknown face



    One night several years back, in a dream, I saw myself preaching to a congregation. Some of the faces in the audience were very familiar to me, friends and members of my church, but then as if a camera were zooming in on someone, one face stood out from the rest. It was of a middle aged man, partially bald, medium height and stout. He was in the 2nd or 3rd row and listening intently to my message. I woke up the next morning and as I recollected the dream, I remembered the face that had stood out from among the rest, but wondered who it must be, for I had never met that person. That Saturday, I was called to preach in a prayer meeting held at a friends house. Friday night, as I sat for prayer and asked the Lord what I should preach the next day, He gave me the verses from Joel 2:12-14 "Even now," declares the LORD, "return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning." Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. Who knows? He may turn and have pity and leave behind a blessing...." And there was a surprise waiting for me when I reached there. There in the 2nd row sat the man the Lord had shown me in the dream. Instantly I knew that the message though for everyone, was specially for this man. As I preached, the Holy Spirit led me through several portions of the Bible where the apostacy of the Israelites is evident. "Enquiring and worshipping Baal instead of Jehovah. The Holy Spirit led me into speaking how christians get trapped when they involve themselves in idol worship. After the service, the man I had seen in the dream came hastily to me and told me his story. He was a believer who had got involved in idolatry and now his daughter was mentally ill. He had done verything in his capacity to get her cured with medicines but to no avail. He had come on holidays from another state to our native place and was returning in a couple of days. I told him that the message that day was specially for him from God and that he should obey accordingly and that I would be praying for him and his ailing daughter. It was very evident here that God wanted to give him another chance and that's why the message-"Even now," declares the LORD, "return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning." Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate..." Whether he took the message to heart is unknown to me for I have never seen him after that. I hope and pray that all goes well with him and his family. [River Of God] [Doctor's Podcast]

    The dreams that I dream-11-Warnings



    A friend of mine, a businessman, happened to call me one day and tell me that his brother had suffered a massive heart attack and died within an hour of his being admitted in the Intensive Coronary Care Unit. I sympathized with him and consoled him at the loss and asked a few family details. I said I would pray for him that the Lord would grant him peace in this tragic circumstance that he faced. A couple of days later, the Lord showed me a dream one night regarding this friend of mine. He was lying in an ICCU with many doctors and nursing staff surrounding him. In the dream I saw that he was going into cardiac arrest and despite the best efforts of the medical staff, he was pronounced dead. When I woke up the next morning, I realized that the Lord was telling me that my friend would suffer the same fate as his brother and since my friend was an unbeliever though a Christian, God was telling me that I should warn him of this and also pray that this may not happen. I chose an oppurtune moment the next day, called my friend to the clinic that I run and very plainly told him what I had seen in the dream. He seemed to listen and shake his head in the affirmative when I told him that he must get right with God and pray about that matter urgently. While leaving, he told me that he would be going abroad for a business trip the next week and that I keep him and his trip in my prayers. I prayed about the matter that evening before I slept. A week later I received a call from an unkown person asking me whether I was the family doctor of such and such a person. On enquiring further, I came to know that my friend who had gone abroad for the business trip had a heart attack and was admitted in the ICCU of one of the big hospitals in Thailand. It was evident that my friend had taken for granted the message of the dream that I had told him about. Evidently he had not taken the matter seriously and prayed about it. The phone kept ringing regularly for a few days telling me the progress of my friend's health. I kept praying for his recovery and finally he was able to travel back home. He recovered fully, but still has not taken a decision to live for the Lord. God gives warnings to many unbelievers through his servants, yet many make light of it and suffer the consequences. Still because of the prayers of God's faithful, God has compassion on them and gives them another lease of life. [River Of God] [Doctor's Podcast]

    The dreams that I dream-10-Prisoner



    Around 3 years back, one day when I was at home visiting my parents, I received a phone call. The caller identified himself and said that he wanted to meet me urgently. I said I was busy and would meet him the next day after my work at the clinic. He came the next day at around 12.30 pm and met me at my clinic. He told me that he had been convicted for drug abuse and as an accomplice in a murder case and was in jail for the past several years. While in jail, he had come across a couple of my books,"Your Future" & "Poison" and after reading that and knowing the truth, he had repented of his sins and prayed to God for forgiveness. He said that "God" had answered his prayers and with good behaviour, his sentence was cut short and he was released just a week back. I extended the right hand of fellowship to this man and invited him to church, helped him financially and gave him several of my books to further his spiritual life. He asked me to urgently pray that he may get a job and I did. A week later, he came to our church and I allowed him to give his testimony. We prayed for him as a church. A couple of days later, the Lord showed me a dream one night. In the dream, I am standing at a junction near our church, waiting for this man. Suddenly, I see this man coming out of a shop, smoking a cigarette. I am surprised and as I approach him, he starts walking away laughing wickedly. I tell him that what he is doing is against the Word of God and a child of God shouldn't do such things. He just laughs and walks away. The dream ended there. I prayed for this man that he may not go back to his old ways and we prayed as a church too. For a month or so, I did not have any information about his whereabouts, then I was told by someone that he had again been convicted on charges of drug abuse and was jailed again. What the Lord had shown in the dream was true. He had gone back to his old ways and was now paying the price for it. Often I think, "God is so good" and gives everyone many chances to "repent" and "come back to him" but some just waste these chances and turn their backs on God.

    The dreams that I dream-9- Rejecting the truth



    Once, a youth started regularly attending our worship services after I had explained to him the gospel truths. He was involving himself in all the activities of the Church and seemed to have taken a decision for living for the Lord. Then one night, the Lord showed me a dream regarding him. In the dream, we both are having dinner and I am serving him food. He seemed to be enjoying it for a while and then all of a sudden he just throws away the food that I had served and gets up and walks away. I prayed about the dream that it may not happen like I had seen. The Lord was showing here that initially the fellow would accept all the spiritual truths that I fed him with, but then he would just discard the whole thing. Though I prayed about the matter, what the Lord had shown took place, as in the dream. Just 1 week after I had seen the dream, without any specific reason, he stopped attending the worship and wouldn’t come back, despite our prayers and pleadings. It was sad that he backslid and wouldn’t choose to live for the Lord. [River Of God] [Doctor's Podcast]

    The dreams that I dream-6- Love your enemies



    Once when I lived in a rented house, though the owners were kind to me, the person who was looking after the house when the owners had gone abroad, was always seeking an oppurtunity to make us leave the place because of vested interests. I happened to know this because the Lord would show me a dream regarding this each time the fellow planned against us. Everytime I would pray to the Lord not to allow his tricks to work. When the Lord started showing me several dreams regarding his plans, I developed a dislike for that man and I changed my prayers. I started praying that the Lord should instead send that fellow away from that place. Some sort of hatred developed inside of me because outwardly he pretended to be kind but he schemed secretly. Finally when the Lord repeatedly showed me these dreams, I told the Lord, "I have been praying all along about this, why don't you do something?" The Holy Spirit spoke to me at that moment and said, "Love your enemies, do good to those who persecute you". I understood that my attitude as a Christian towards this man was wrong. So I decided to do something good for this man for all the wrong that he was doing. I had a brand new shaving set with me and I decided to present him that. That same day when I met him, I presented that set to him. He looked surprised and thanked me. I confessed the grudge that I had towards this man to the Lord and found great peace in my heart. I was happy that I had obeyed the voice of the Holy Spirit. The Lord was pleased too and I know it for sure because in 2 days, he sent the fellow away from that place, no more to trouble us.

    The dreams that I dream- 4- Whirlwind



    One night in May 2003, I saw a dream which frightened me much. In the dream, I saw myself and my wife stepping into a vehicle without wheels, somewhat like the basket of a hot air balloon. All of a sudden a gust of wind propels the basket like vehicle into the air. I and my wife hold on to the sides of the vehicle. The wind increases in speed in might and speed and turns into a whirlwind. Both of us cling on in desperation with the whirlwind swinging us round and round, up and down in all directions. Finally everything becomes calm as the wind subsides and we heave a collective sigh of relief. Because of the intensity of the dream, I woke up in fear. I knew it was the Holy Spirit speaking to me of turbulent times ahead. I prayed about the matter then itself and also with my wife later that morning and also in the coming days. In the second week of June, my father-in-law aged 72, had facial convulsions and in 2 weeks was diagnosed with malignant cancer of the brain. Inoperable, not responsive to chemotherapy or radiation. This was a really testing time in our lives, with both me and my wife busy with ministry work and me with my medical practice. In and out of hospitals we went every few days and later on as his disabilities progressed, we really had a tough time trying to control his generalized convulsions. While he was in the initial stages of the sickness that afflicted him, my father who was otherwise healthy suddenly came down with Dengue fever. His platelet count fell rapidly and he started bleeding profusely from the stomach. I was called to attend to him while I was leading a Sunday worship. I was with him for about 2 weeks in the hospital while he was saved from death by the prayers of many. He was given 10 platelet transfusions. My father-in-law mean while deteriorated in health and was bedridden and for the last 2 months of his life was unconcious. During this period, I developed chest discomfort and breathlessness because of too much stress and strain and this problem lasted for around 3 months. My father-in-law died on Nov.10, 2003 after 5 months of suffering, my father recovered totally and I was healed by prayers. All in all we had a whirlwind like situation as the Holy Spirit had shown. My ministry, medical practice, the children's schooling, home matters all were disrupted for a while, but then the God of all comfort, who comforts us in our afflictions comforted us and we had peace that passess all understanding during these turbulent times.

    Trapped in a cage



    The dreams that I dream-3- Trapped in a wooden cage Last Saturday (10/7/2006) night, the Lord showed me a dream. One of the members of our church is trapped in a large wooden cage with nets all around. The brothers from our church are trying fervently to get him out and I too am with them. Finally I was able to tear the nets covering one side of the cage and the brother was freed. I prayed for the matter at night itself at around 2am, when I woke up seeing the dream. I knew that the Holy Spirit was showing that this brother was going to be attacked by satan and I would be able to free him by taking the appropriate action. On Sunday morning when I reached the church that I pastor, I wanted to immediately tell this brother to be alert in prayer but to my surprise the others there told me that he had been hospitalized at 2am that morning with excruciating abdominal pain and vomiting. We prayed for this brother fervently during Worship and after the service several of us visited him in the hospital. He seemed to be in dire straits with bad abdominal pain and vomitings. Yet, because I knew what the cause was, we joined together in prayer and I laid my hands on this brother and rebuked the evil forces that were afflicting him. By evening he was better and the next day he was free of pain and vomiting. Not all sicknesses are sicknesses. Some are demonic afflictions and such can be freed by rebuking the evil forces/demons in Jesus name. What the Holy Spirit showed in the dream (me freeing him by forcibly tearing the nets that caged him) was rebuking the demons that afflicted him. Praise God that the Holy Spirit is our Counsellor.

    The dreams that I dream-2- Earthquakes



    In 2004-05, when several earthquakes were occuring all over the world and in India, I was awakened one night by the Lord by showing me a dream of a massive earthquake occuring here in Kerala, South India. In the dream, I was driving my car to our Church but to my horror, the roads are split wide open and I can neither go forwards/backwards. Obviously it was a warning that a quake would hit our state, so I prayed about the matter and then forgot about it. A week later, the Lord showed me another dream wherein an earthquake has already taken place in our state and I am giving people directions as to where to find shelters. I prayed about the matter again, this time more seriously. To tell me that my prayers were not enough, the Lord showed me yet another dream of an earthquake that had hit a locality near my house, with broken bridges and fallen electric lines. For several days I and my wife prayed fervently that this may not happen. I resorted to corporate prayer and asked my church members to fast and pray for a day to avert this calamity. God saved our state from a major disaster. Well, not many know of my dreams and many wouldn't understand that some had "stood in the gap." Praise God that He gives prior warning to His children who walk with Him.
