Old Man Dreams

And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions- Joel 2

I have heard this passage preached in a comical fashion most of my life. Ministers often say “when u stop having visions and start having dreams… then you know your getting old”. Although its cutesy and somewhat funny, I knew that the passage couldn’t really be implying this. 

So I asked the Lord about it and he basically told me… “my power is not limited by a persons age, of course ‘old men’ can still have visions it’s just that old men typically spend more time sleeping”. 

Then I replied by telling him thanks for the insightful dream I had the night before.
