God Speaks in Your Dream
Summarizing the Importance of Our Dreams
God has chosen to communicate with mankind
through dreams. He guides and counsels us through
our dreams. He establishes covenants with us
through our dreams. He grants us gifts in our dreams.
He utilized dreams from Genesis to Revelation, and
declared that He would continue to use them in the
last days. When you total up all dreams and visions
in the Bible, and all the stories and actions which
come out of these dreams and visions, you have
about one-third of the Bible, which is equal to the
size of the New Testament! Dreams are a central
way God has chosen to communicate with us, and
thus they must be given great weight!
We strongly believe that a person's dreams and the meaning of those dreams is between them and God alone. Does God still speak through dreams? God has spoken to people many times throughout the Scriptures by means of dreams. Examples would be Joseph (son of Jacob/Israel), Joseph the husband of Mary, Solomon and many others. There is also a quotation of Joel the prophet made by Peter in Acts 2:17 that mentions dreams. So the simple answer is yes, God speaks through dreams, among other ways.
These dreams were of tremendous biblical importance. Are there any other dreams in the Bible? Yes! Remember Jacobís famous dream of the angels ascending and descending? He later had a dream telling him to leave his uncle Laban. And Laban had a dream telling him to let Jacob go in peace.
The Magi or three wise men had a dream that warned them about Herodís intent to kill the Christ child. And the wife of Pontius Pilate had a dream, just before the crucifixion, warning her that her husband should not punish Jesus.
If one does not believe as Jesus indicates, one will not bother to remember or analyze your dreams. This is a huge mistake! Throughout the Bible God has revealed many historical and prophetic matters through His creative mechanism of the dream. As you learn dream interpretation principles with the use of our site you will see this reality. You have to actually experience that dreams are meaningful before you can know for yourself that the unconscious is really and truly seeking dialogue with you, and that God is behind the dialogue.
