Premonitions and Apparitions

Premonitions and Apparitions

The following are some examples of premonitions and apparitions. They appear to be from God.

The following report on Abraham Lincoln has appeared in many sources.

“In this account, Lincoln began by commenting on the abundance of dreams in the Bible and asserting, ‘If we believe the Bible, we must accept the fact that in the old days God and His angels came to men in their sleep and made themselves known in dreams.’ In answer to a question put to him by his wife, Lincoln admitted that he did not believe in dreams, but he went on nevertheless to allude to a recent dream that “has haunted me ever since.”

“Prodded by Mrs. Lincoln to continue, the president related that ‘about ten days ago’ he had gone to bed late after he had stayed up ‘waiting for important dispatches from the front.’ As he began to dream, he experienced ‘a death-like stillness about me.’ ‘Hearing the sounds of subdued sobs,’ Lincoln walked downstairs in search of the ‘mournful sounds of distress,’ but encountered no living person until he entered the East Room, where he found ‘a sickening surprise’: a covered corpse resting on a catafalque, surrounded by soldiers, with mourners gazing at the body and weeping. ‘Who is dead in the White House?’ I demanded of one of the soldiers, ‘Lincoln related in [Ward Hill] Lamon’s account, continuing, ‘The President,’ was his answer; ‘he was killed by an assassin!’ Lincoln then stated that he awoke soon after in response to a ‘loud burst of grief from the crowd,’ and did not sleep again that night due to the dream, and ‘have been strangely annoyed by it since.'”

Did President Lincoln have a Deathbed Vision about his own assassination? Was this a warning or just a fluke?

Dr. Melvin Morse reports in his book Closer to the Light, pp 82-83, a vision he had when his father passed away.

“Months before by father died, he sat down in my living room and told me that the he was going to die soon.”

“The night he died, ‘I was exhausted from work and had turned off my telephone. As I dozed off, I saw my father, ‘Melvin, call your answering service,’ he said. ‘I have something to tell you.’ I called and was told to contact my mother immediately. She told me that he had died.”

A personal experience. My own mother had a vision or dream of my father appearing to her soon after his death. He wanted to know if she was ok and said that he was in orientation. “Orientation” would not be a word that my father would normally use.

I had a friend who was shot with an automatic weapon in Vietnam. Thankfully, the ammunition was wet and he was not harmed. About the same time he was shot, his mother was awaken with a deep impression that her son was in danger and that she should pray for him.

There have been a number of reports of a vision of the Virgin Mary. There are also several reports of Jesus appearing to Muslins. After the experience, most Muslins convert to Christianity.
