So, I think we can probably find enough common ground on this; even if we aren’t in 100% agreement, which I don’t think is that important. What I mean is that it is not that important to have 100% agreement on everything, because Christians of good faith can have varying beliefs on many issues.
What I do affirm, therefore, and what I think you are also clearly affirming is this:
I do believe that the gift of prophecy continues today. I am not a cessasionist on spiritual gifts, although I welcome people who differ on that. I know some very godly people who do think certain gifts have ceased. But, I am not one of them. I see no evidence in Scripture that certain gifts, like miracles, or prophecy, have ceased. And, it seems like there is enough evidence to suggest that they do continue today. You are one example of that evidence
I imagine God can, in dreams or visions, give believers a sense of future events. What I DO NOT think is that any of these kinds of dreams or visions can be utilized in an authoritative manner; i.e. that your dreams or mine can become binding or authoritative either on us or others. Perhaps, for one’s own self, a dream could act as a conviction of sorts, but if it were to fall short of what was clearly laid out in Scripture, the information garnered from the dream would have to be viewed as either false, or subservient to the scriptural data.
That, of course, unless the information from the dream is just very clearly in line with what Scripture already says. But, I think this is also what you are saying; so, as long as we don’t treat dreams or visions in the same way we would treat the words of those that fulfilled a prophetic office(e.g. the OT prophets, or the Apostles), then I have no problem saying that God reveals some future events to his people. Why He does that today, is an interesting question though. I’d have to think about that more. I have thought that if someone saw something of the future in a dream, or even something in the present, but that otherwise would not have been known to them, that this knowledge could be used as an encouragement to other believers; or perhaps, a warning. But again, there I would want to be careful.
I will say, however, as a caveat to this second point, that growing up Cathoic, I was aware of many so-called “visionaries” who would foretell all kinds of future events. I don’t think all of them were legitimate, and my concern with ones that perhaps were more authentic, in some way, is that I saw many friends (and some family members) almost get too involved or entangled in these prophecies. This seemed to become a distraction from the central message of the Gospel, namely, Christ’s atonement for sin, and His resurrection, the establishment of His church, and His mediation at the right hand of the Father for sinners.
So, in that sense, I am also wary of becoming too engrossed with prophecy. I think it is a natural inclination for all of us to want special knowledge; and sometimes, as you have testified, God will give that knowledge. But, I think to become enamored with prophetic knowledge can be a temptation best avoided.
With regard to the actual matter of prophecy, however, I think we are broadly in agreement.
