My friend and I shared a dream. Does that mean we are telepathic?


Last night me and a close friend had exactly the same dream, we look on the Internet to find out what it meant. It said we telepathically connected. It also pointed out the words "devine world" I look it up and found out the devine world is also known as "limbo" the place you are before you are born and before you die, and said that we went there spiritually without us knowing. My date changed on my phone the day before to 16th April 2044, I went asleep just after midnight 17 April 2044 in which we supposed to of went to the devine world. I looked up the date 17 april 2044 and it told me it was easter Sunday. Is this a sign of the day I'm going to die or another other sign?


Can telepathy be real?

Telepathy has never been proven. Even if it did, that would mean you went into a "spiritual realm," transported to some random place people might call limbo. Fox News did a interesting article about scientists reading thoughts with electrodes.  Actual thoughts are not being read, they are being guessed by watching brain activity. What God said remains true, "For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him?" (I Corinthians 2:11). We can guess from expression, body language, and now watching electrical signals, but we still don't know the thoughts of people. By the way, the electrodes were needed because there isn't any detectable activity outside the skull.

Just because you find something on the Internet, it doesn't make it true. The Internet is merely a collection of what people wrote. It is foolish to believe every web site we find that says what we want to hear. I imagine if I talked to your friend and you separately, I would learn your dreams were actually different in many ways. One way to test this is have both of you write down what you remember without talking to each other. Then look at the differences. When you talk to someone before writing your story down, there is a tendency to let what others say influence you, adding their story to your own. Which you most likely did in this case. This is same reason why police separate people when questioning them so people don't get influenced by other peoples' answers and change their own story. 

Why do people have similar dreams?   

Even my wife and I will dream of the same things, but this just means we have had some of the same experiences and are best friends. The longer we know each other, more often we tend to dream about the same stuff. What is important to her is important to me all our likes and dislikes become quiet similar along with wants and desires. Same thing usually happens with best friends. I can watch a movie and so can many people that I do not know and we all would have a good chance of having a similar type of dream, especially if it was a movie that made an impression. This is not telepathy; just your mind organizing your thoughts.

Is Limbo real?

Limbo is the creation of the Roman Catholics to explain what happens to children who aren't baptized into Catholicism. It is not a biblical teaching. There is a place call Hades. For more information on that please see: When you die, do you go straight to heaven or hell? It's the waiting place of the dead for judgment day. This not what you described and it's not a place you would want to be if you are not a follower of God.

The idea of being alive before being born on earth isn't found in the Bible either.

Can a phone be changed while someone is asleep?

There are a variety of ways this could happen. Your cell phone could have malfunctioned. The nearest tower could have malfunctioned and sent the wrong date. Your phone could have been in a spot where it couldn't get a signal and so went to a default date. You could even have accidentally punched buttons while you slept. There is nothing miraculous about a phone getting the wrong date, and thus it is insignificant as an event.

Do we still see signs today?

The Real Divine

In the history of man there has been many signs, wonders and miracles, even mind reading (only done by the Holy Spirit). (II Kings 5:26; Mathew 9:4; Mark 2:8; Acts 5:1-11). 

A while back a question was answered by Jeffery and I, "I think you are insulting God to believe everything written down the Bible," to a lady who did not like the truth of God. We gave her evidence in history, prophecy, science, and archaeology regarding the accuracy of the Bible, how it points to God, and how the Bible never has been proven wrong. As science grows and stuff is unearthed, it is generally found to support the Bible. Look at facts about God's word and His creation, and find out for yourself all the answers you need from the Creator of the universe. If you want answers, He has them. The question is: are you ready to know Him? Take a look at just how amazing God is.

If you want to know about the spiritual world and how God works, pick up a Bible. Start in the book of Mark to look  and see how Jesus, the Son of God, came down to save mankind. Let us know if you have any questions. Through it all there are miracles, signs, and wonders done by Jesus showing the Glory of God and how He loves us (John 3:16; John 20:30-31). Best of all the Scripture gives us everything God wants us to know pertaining to living life (II Peter 1:2-4). It will equip you for every good work (II Timothy 3:16-17), for understanding Scriptures, and to understand God (Ephesians 5:17) and live spiritually and not fleshly. 

As a Christian you become partakers of the divine nature of God and come to a better understanding of life and why we are here and what awaits us after this life. If you want to know what divine is, learn about the one who is divine who is God Himself. We must be partakers of this nature by becoming a Christian and following Him. 

God doesn't hide Himself but rewards those who diligently seek him.  "But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him" (Hebrews 11:6).

Are you ready to know and seek God and know the reason why you are here?
