What The Bible Says About Dreams?
God Speaks through Dreams
We’re starting with the awe-inspiring ways God speaks through dreams and visions. In the Old Testament, God spoke to the prophets and righteous men through dreams. For instance, when deep sleep falls on Abraham, God reveals mysteries about his descendants’ future (Genesis 15:12-21). Similarly, Joseph dreamed two dreams that foretold his future rise to power (Genesis 37).
Oh, it doesn’t end here! God gave King Solomon wisdom and immense riches through a dream in 1 King 3:5-15. How cool is that?
Dream Interpretations Belong to God
Alright, you aspiring wise men, let’s discuss interpreting these mind-blowing dreams! Now, Joseph was not just a dreamer; Joseph interpreted dreams too! Remember the big cheese, Pharaoh? He had these baffling dreams, and our boy Joseph cracked the code. His ability to interpret was God-given, and Joseph firmly believed that interpretations belong to God (Genesis 41:16).
What are the three types of dreams in the Bible?
- The Dream of a Message📜 Allows me to draw your attention to the first type of dream, esteemed readers. These dreams are akin to divine messages sent directly from the celestial realms! Such dreams bear striking clarity, much like a lucid message. For instance, consider the Biblical account where God provided Joseph with explicit guidance to move to Egypt with Mary and Jesus for their safety. The message was unambiguous, much like a captain’s order on a ship. Steadfast and clear.
- The Simple Symbolic Dreams, or “The French”🥐 Now, let us stroll through a quaint European street. Envision sitting in an elegant café in Paris, taking in the essence of simple, yet meaningful symbols surrounding you. This, my friends, mirrors the nature of God’s simple symbolic dreams. In these dreams, the Divine employs symbols that resonate with our core. Upon waking, interpretations often unveil themselves with the grace and ease of an unfolding blossom.
- Complex Symbolic Dreams🔮 Imagine, if you will, donning the hat of a master cryptographer tasked with decoding an ancient scroll teeming with arcane symbols. This paints a vivid picture of what Complex Symbolic Dreams entail. These dreams are a mosaic of enigmatic characters through which God conveys deeper, more intricate messages. Recall King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the statue. It was a labyrinthine puzzle! However, gifted interpreters like Daniel possessed the wisdom to illuminate the cryptic symbols.
Caution: Beware of False Dreams!
Hold your horses! Not all dreams in the Bible are from God. The scriptures warn us against false prophets who prophesy lying dreams and lead the people astray. Jerimiah 23:32 is a wake-up call! We must discern the spirits and fear God, not be led astray by lying dreams.
