Poems-Dead Dreams Must Come Alive


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,

 And 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

Completely, unfettered.

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 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 dreams 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 celebration 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 and flesh,

 sinews and muscle came on the bones.

All these happened

but there 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.

The  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 He  that was dead

But now I am alive and alive for evermore.

He said, ‘I am the Resurrection and the Life.

‘He who believes in Me though he were 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 entered the heart of man

What God has in store for those who love Him.
