Dream interpretation

No one is limiting God or putting Him in a box. God gives us the gifts and lists them in Scripture. Dream interpretation is not one of them. If God gives you a dream, He will give you the understanding of it someway somehow. But we do not seek out some supposed one who is a dream interpreter. If you don't understand it, and no understanding comes, then it probably wasn't from God. Immediate understanding is not always necessary.

Whenever we say, it cant be done. Or that its not written in scripture, therefore it isnt from God. Only shows our lack of understanding that God is limitless

Jesus Himself says, others will come and do even greater works than He has done.

And the Apostles as well state, that not all they experienced was written down

Answering your question further. But showing , just because someone is a believer, doesnt mean they have the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Every believer has the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ. If he doesn't, he is not Christian. (Rom. 8:9) Thus they don't need others to give them intepretation of dreams.

Well, some say you can be saved without being born-again. You just need to do your best and if you're sincere in what you believe, then God understands. It sounds good, but we are told differently in Scripture. And Scripture has given us the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and dream interpretation isn't one of them. That is not limiting God. That is not misunderstanding God. That is believing what He says.

Romans 8.9 this passage is talking of the Holy Spirit being in you. Just read further down where Scripture says, "and if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you"

Why would John the Baptist go to the trouble of saying i baptise you with water, but the one coming after me will baptize you with fire.

The Baptism of water brings us into the household, but the Baptism of fire brings the Holy Spirit

This is a little off subject. But believing what God says, a doing the will of God are two things. There are many who say " i follow the bible" but i can assure you, very few do. Lets do an example. If you agree that the bible is the insipred Word of God. And that God had a direct hand in it. Do you refer to Mary, Jesus mother as Holy or Blessed. Because that is not a catholic teaching. That is the Holy Spirit making a proclamation.

(Rom. 8:9) "But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his."

(Rom.8:10) "And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin...."

(Rom 8:11) "But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you,...."

Every believer has the Holy Spirit. If he doesn't, then he doesn't belong to Christ. So if you have the Spirit of God you are no longer in the flesh but the Spirit. Thus if Christ be in you, as he has just described, the body is dead because of sin.

In other words, every believer has the Holy Spirit.

Concerning (Matt. 3:11) John said, "I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than i, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire." John said it because these were different baptism's. Johns was a baptism of repentance necessary to enter the kingdom. Christ's was a baptism of the Holy Spirit.

Indeed, so why not stick to the subject.
