Dead Dreams Must Live
Not because I say so
But because Jesus says so
Because He is the Resurrection and the Life
He died and rose to give my dead dream life
There is no situation that is hopeless with Him
With God all things, yes, ALL things are possible
Lazarus was dead for four days and now stank
Jesus Christ of Nazareth, arrived on the scene
An turned the hopeless situation around
Roll away the stone!
Lazarus, come forth!
And Lazarus came forth.
And even when he had risen
the grave clothes contained him
Jesus then gave the command,
‘Loose him and let him go!’
He was loosed, set free
By the resurrection power
By the anointing that breaks yokes
By the power of the Holy Ghost
And because Jesus Christ remains
the same, Yesterday, Today and Forever
My dead dreams today will live!
He triumphed over death and Hades
He has the final say concerning my dreams.
Because He lives, I will not die but live
To declare the works of the Lord.
Because He lives, my dreams will live.
Joseph had a dream and they hated him for it.
They threw him into the pit sold him into slavery.
He ended up in Potiphar’s house as a servant.
Then he was tempted and despite passing the test,
He was maligned and thrown into the dungeon.
His dream was dead, as it were, but he trusted God,
And kept on interpreting dreams for others.
And in the fullness of time, God remembered Joseph.
He was raised from the dungeon to become the
The key man, the Prime Minister of Egypt
His dead dream was raised from the dead.
Glory be to God who raises dead dreams.
The woman in Shunem had a Son at the set time
According to the word of the Prophet, Elisha.
But one day the boy sneezed and died
Her husband was old, and this was her
Only son, her dream, the Apple of her eyes
She immediately saddled a donkey
And headed for the village of the prophet
The prophet saw her from afar and knew there
Was a problem but he could not tell what it was.
She would not let go of him until he followed her back.
He arrive her home to find the dead dream- the boy.
He agonised in prayer and the boy came alive!
Ha! Dead dream must come alive, in Jesus’ Name.
The widow of Nain had only one son, who died.
Jesus met the burial procession and was compassionate.
‘Put the Casket down,’ He told them, and raised the boy.
There was celebraton and jubilation all over that village
The woman with the issue of blood was dead but walking
All her hopes dashed as her condition grew worse.
But Jesus came into town and she dared to believe
In the resurrection of her hopes for total deliverance.
Despite the throng of people that discouraged her
She refused to yield but pressed through to touch Jesus.
And with the touch of faith the blood issue dried up.
Her dead dream was raised from the dead, Glory!
For thirty eight years he waited and waited and waited
At the pool of Bethesda, hoping to have a chance
To get first into the pool when the angel stirred the water.
But he was disappointed again and again. His dream died.
Then Jesus showed up one day and raised his dream.
Ezekiel was in the Valley of dry bones surrounded by deadness. Then God asked him, Son of man, shall these bones live? Ezekiel was smart and answered, Lord, Thou knowest.’
God commanded him to prophesy to the bones to come to their bones Heals prophesid for flesh, sinews and muscle to come on the bones. All these happened just like he prophesied,
but their was no life in the bodies. God commanded him to prophesy to the four winds. He did and breath came into the dead bodies and there arose a mighty army,
to the Glory of God. Dead dream lived.
The God who did all these remains the same.
He said ,’I am the Lord, I change not.’
Behold I am the Lord God of all flesh
Is there anything too hard for me?
Jesus said behold I am the that was dead
But now I am alive and alive forevermore.
He said I am the resurrection and the life.
He who believes in me though he was dead
Yet shall he live; so my dead dream will live!
So is your dream dead?
Has your vision vanished?
Even though you have believed
In the Resurrection and the Life?
Bring it to Jesus. Tell Him how it is.
Believe that He is compassionate.
Believe that He has the power.
Reach out and touch Him
With the touch of faith.
And your dream will live!
Say this with me:
My dream will live
Because Jesus is alive!
He is the resurrection and the life.
My God is able to do exceeding
Abundantly, more than I can ask or dream
For eye has not seen, ear has not heard
neither has it enteed te heat of man
What God has in store for those who love Him.
1On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, "Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7'The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.' " 8Then they remembered his words.
9When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others. 10It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the others with them who told this to the apostles. 11But they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense. 12Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. Bending over, he saw the strips of linen lying by themselves, and he went away, wondering to himself what had happened.
John 11:16-18 (New International Version)
16Then Thomas (called Didymus) said to the rest of the disciples, "Let us also go, that we may die with him."
Jesus Comforts the Sisters
17On his arrival, Jesus found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days. 18Bethany was less than two miles[a] from Jerusalem,
37But some of them said, "Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?"
Jesus Raises Lazarus From the Dead
38Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39"Take away the stone," he said.
"But, Lord," said Martha, the sister of the dead man, "by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days."
John 11:42-44 (New International Version)
42I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me."
43When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!" 44The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.
Jesus said to them, "Take off the grave clothes and let him go."
23 So when Joseph came to his brothers, they stripped him of his robe—the richly ornamented robe he was wearing- 24 and they took him and threw him into the cistern. Now the cistern was empty; there was no water in it.
28 So when the Midianite merchants came by, his brothers pulled Joseph up out of the cistern and sold him for twenty shekels [b] of silver to the Ishmaelites, who took him to Egypt.
16 She kept his cloak beside her until his master came home. 17 Then she told him this story: "That Hebrew slave you brought us came to me to make sport of me. 18 But as soon as I screamed for help, he left his cloak beside me and ran out of the house."
19 When his master heard the story his wife told him, saying, "This is how your slave treated me," he burned with anger. 20 Joseph's master took him and put him in prison, the place where the king's prisoners were confined.
Joseph in Charge of Egypt
41 So Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I hereby put you in charge of the whole land of Egypt." 42 Then Pharaoh took his signet ring from his finger and put it on Joseph's finger. He dressed him in robes of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. 43 He had him ride in a chariot as his second-in-command, [c] and men shouted before him, "Make way [d] !" Thus he put him in charge of the whole land of Egypt.
44 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I am Pharaoh, but without your word no one will lift hand or foot in all Egypt." 45 Pharaoh gave Joseph the name Zaphenath-Paneah and gave him Asenath daughter of Potiphera, priest of On, [e] to be his wife. And Joseph went throughout the land of Egypt. Gen41
The Shunammite's Son Restored to Life
8 One day Elisha went to Shunem. And a well-to-do woman was there, who urged him to stay for a meal. So whenever he came by, he stopped there to eat. 9 She said to her husband, "I know that this man who often comes our way is a holy man of God. 10 Let's make a small room on the roof and put in it a bed and a table, a chair and a lamp for him. Then he can stay there whenever he comes to us."
11 One day when Elisha came, he went up to his room and lay down there. 12 He said to his servant Gehazi, "Call the Shunammite." So he called her, and she stood before him. 13 Elisha said to him, "Tell her, 'You have gone to all this trouble for us. Now what can be done for you? Can we speak on your behalf to the king or the commander of the army?' "
She replied, "I have a home among my own people."
14 "What can be done for her?" Elisha asked.
Gehazi said, "Well, she has no son and her husband is old."
15 Then Elisha said, "Call her." So he called her, and she stood in the doorway. 16 "About this time next year," Elisha said, "you will hold a son in your arms."
"No, my lord," she objected. "Don't mislead your servant, O man of God!"
17 But the woman became pregnant, and the next year about that same time she gave birth to a son, just as Elisha had told her.
18 The child grew, and one day he went out to his father, who was with the reapers. 19 "My head! My head!" he said to his father.
His father told a servant, "Carry him to his mother." 20 After the servant had lifted him up and carried him to his mother, the boy sat on her lap until noon, and then he died. 21 She went up and laid him on the bed of the man of God, then shut the door and went out.
22 She called her husband and said, "Please send me one of the servants and a donkey so I can go to the man of God quickly and return."
23 "Why go to him today?" he asked. "It's not the New Moon or the Sabbath."
"It's all right," she said.
24 She saddled the donkey and said to her servant, "Lead on; don't slow down for me unless I tell you." 25 So she set out and came to the man of God at Mount Carmel.
When he saw her in the distance, the man of God said to his servant Gehazi, "Look! There's the Shunammite! 26 Run to meet her and ask her, 'Are you all right? Is your husband all right? Is your child all right?' "
"Everything is all right," she said.
27 When she reached the man of God at the mountain, she took hold of his feet. Gehazi came over to push her away, but the man of God said, "Leave her alone! She is in bitter distress, but the LORD has hidden it from me and has not told me why."
28 "Did I ask you for a son, my lord?" she said. "Didn't I tell you, 'Don't raise my hopes'?"
29 Elisha said to Gehazi, "Tuck your cloak into your belt, take my staff in your hand and run. If you meet anyone, do not greet him, and if anyone greets you, do not answer. Lay my staff on the boy's face."
30 But the child's mother said, "As surely as the LORD lives and as you live, I will not leave you." So he got up and followed her.
31 Gehazi went on ahead and laid the staff on the boy's face, but there was no sound or response. So Gehazi went back to meet Elisha and told him, "The boy has not awakened."
32 When Elisha reached the house, there was the boy lying dead on his couch. 33 He went in, shut the door on the two of them and prayed to the LORD. 34 Then he got on the bed and lay upon the boy, mouth to mouth, eyes to eyes, hands to hands. As he stretched himself out upon him, the boy's body grew warm. 35 Elisha turned away and walked back and forth in the room and then got on the bed and stretched out upon him once more. The boy sneezed seven times and opened his eyes.
36 Elisha summoned Gehazi and said, "Call the Shunammite." And he did. When she came, he said, "Take your son." 37 She came in, fell at his feet and bowed to the ground. Then she took her son and went out.
Jesus Raises a Widow's Son
11Soon afterward, Jesus went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went along with him. 12As he approached the town gate, a dead person was being carried out—the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the town was with her. Luke 7:11-12
The Valley of Dry Bones
1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. 2 He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. 3 He asked me, "Son of man, can these bones live?"
I said, "O Sovereign LORD, you alone know."
4 Then he said to me, "Prophesy to these bones and say to them, 'Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! 5 This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath [a] enter you, and you will come to life. 6 I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.' "
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. 8 I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.
9 Then he said to me, "Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe into these slain, that they may live.' " 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army. Ezek 37:1-10
17When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: "Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. 18I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades. Rev1:17-18
