God , Art and Truth Part 3
(4) God can speak to us in dreams and visions. What about speaking to nonbelievers? Can this be a form of inspiration for filmmakers and media makers? What does the Bible have to say?
Joel 33:14-17 says, “God does speak--sometimes one way and sometimes another--even though people do not understand it. He speaks in a dream, in a vision of the night when people are in a deep sleep, lying on their beds. He speaks in their ears and frightens them with warnings to turn away from dong wrong and to keep them from being proud. He does this to save people from death, to keep them from dying”. NCV
Could some of today’s modern filmmakers be experiencing dreams just like Nebuchadnezzar but are also unaware of the source or the meaning of the dream? However, they are telling their stories in movies. Because the message is from God, people are responding because it is touching them at the deepest emotional level.
