Wow! What a crazy dream I had this morning! I had a dream where I was with my mom and she was feeling kinda sick or more like she was in pain. So we walked around to see if we could find help and we encountered this man who was sitting on a bench. He looked like a hippie, but I asked him for help. It was useless just asking him. Then suddenly in the distance not too far away, I see a bright white figure full of white that was just beautiful beyond description. I absolutely knew it was Jesus, no doubt about that. He was so beautiful that nothing else mattered. Just staring into Jesus and how beautiful He is just blew my mind. I couldn't believe what my eyes were seeing. I remember I was telling my mom "look over there, do you see that!." That was the second dream I had that involved seeing Jesus. Later today me and my good Christian buddy Austin left to Jamba Juice to get a drink. I was waiting by the wall when an Indian man stands next to me and tells me "I agree with all three things on your shirt except the last one." I was wearing a shirt that said "live, laugh, love, pray." Me and Krishna (he goes by Kris) had a very nice conversation about faith and different religions etc. I shared a little bit about my faith and what Jesus did for us on the Cross by dying for us and then rising from the dead. He was just listening and he respected my strong faith in Christ. I remember he put his arm around me and told me "your a good guy. Keep that strong faith that you have. Faith like that is good." I wanted to talk to Kris more, but his drinks came and couldn't talk to him any more. I did whatever I could to share the gospel with him. Please pray for Kris, please. He had so many questions and it sure did because he was very curious about religion and what he was believing. Pray that the Lord would guide him toward the truth of the Lord Jesus Christ and draw him in. Praise the Lord for this awesome divine appointment today!!!

Yesterday I had a very interesting conversation with my atheist family friend. We talked about gay marriage and other various topics. One of the interesting things I heard from my atheist family friend is that he told me that if God exists and He created us, He wouldn't hate us. Because He knows that if an all-knowing, all-powerful and loving God is love, He wouldn't throw His Creation away. He told me that it wasn't right for people to say that God hates gay people when there is no evidence that He does. Where does it say in the bible that God hates people? Or even gay people for that matter? It doesn't. God loves every person on earth whether lost or saved. He proved it by dying for us on the Cross. "This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins." 1 John 4:10 That doesn't mean that God loves the person's sin because God is holy and He hates sin. God loves people, not sin. It is mankind's sin that causes us human beings to fall. From the beginning in Genesis where Creation fell and sin came upon the entire world. Genesis 3. God knew that there was no other way and that Jesus Christ was the only answer to a fallen humanity like us. "For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." John 3:17 Another interesting point my family friend made was that he also knew that pride was a bad thing according to the bible. He didn't know the exact verse but I knew what he was referring to. It was this: "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall." Proverbs 16:18 Me and my family friend had a great conversation, please pray for his soul that he would be saved. Even he as an atheist that does not believe in God, knew that a God who is love can't hate His people that He made because that is against His nature. I know this was a divine appointment. Praise the Lord!!!
