About our Logo
Regina Dawn Akers received guidance regarding the design of the NTI book cover through a series of dreams. On May 21, 2007, the symbol from her dreams was also adopted as the new logo for the Foundation for the Holy Spirit. Here is Regina’s story about those dreams, the NTI book cover and the new foundation logo:
“The first dream came in the summer of 2006. In that dream, I was standing and looking at a wheat field that stretched as far as the eyes could see. As I looked on the wheat field I heard a thought, ‘The cover of the book is to be this color.’ A few weeks later, I had the same dream again.
“I am not an artist, so I called a friend of mine, Phil Frisk, who is an artist. I asked Phil if he would design a wheat-colored cover for NTI. He agreed. We didn’t talk about it again and a couple of months passed, then I had another dream. In this dream I was talking to a young man who seemed to have some authority over the NTI book cover. I was telling him that the blue flame needed to be on the cover. The blue flame was a logo that represented the Foundation for the Holy Spirit. The young man disagreed. I told him that the copyright for NTI belonged to the foundation, so the blue flame must be on the cover. He said that wouldn’t do. I continued to insist, and he continued to say no. Then he reached into his files and pulled out a picture of a sheaf of wheat. He said that this picture was to be on the cover.
“That morning I got up and groggily made my way to the computer with a cup of coffee in my hand. I opened my email inbox and double-clicked on the first email I saw. It was an email from Phil Frisk. The draft NTI book cover was attached. Right in the center of the cover, Phil had included the same picture of a sheaf of wheat that I had seen in my dream. That was a wow moment for me. I had no doubt that this was to be the cover design for NTI.
“NTI Matthew and NTI Revelation talk about a harvest, which is the separating of the wheat from the chaff, or the true from the false. Both books teach that the harvest is always now. I believe this is what the sheaf of wheat represents. It’s a great reminder to help us stay focused on purpose.”
“The foundation’s purpose is the same as NTI’s purpose, so the foundation directors decided to update the foundation logo by replacing the blue flame with the sheaf of wheat. This consistent use of symbols is a consistent reminder of purpose. We are grateful for the logo we were given through a series of dreams.”
