I’ve been a student of Dream Analysis since 1995. I wasn’t exactly big on the idea of Dream Analysis at first; a therapist I was seeing at the time, regarding depression, talking me into giving it a go. However, after the first six months of keeping a Dream Journal; some things happened that caused me to see the value in remembering and understanding those visions we all experience in our sleep.
These days; if I don’t have dreams for a few days, I feel as though I’ve truly gone blind. I mean… I know I am already. “But…”
“Anyhow…” In an effort to draw closer to God in recent years; I began to wonder what The Bible had to say about dream analysis, which might actually be helpful in walking my current path with the Lord. So, in October of 2015 I had the bright idea to look up all I could find in The Bible about dreams and dreaming; discovering 7 highly effective things to keep in mind where Dream Analysis is concerned.
To start with; Genesis 41:32 suggests that when dreams with the same principle occur twice over a period of ours or days (one per sleep cycle); it means that the event identified within them will take place in the future. Numbers 12:6 speaks for itself by stating, “And he said: Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the Lord will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.”
Then we have Job 33. This chapter makes it pretty clear that God does talk to us through dreams. However, God will often cause us to forget what he says to us in our dreams; only allowing a select few to remember his presence while in that state.
Ecclesiasts 5 strongly suggests that a torrent of dreams (during a single sleep cycle) is not a message from God. Multiple dreams are the result of the day to day business of your life.
In looking at Jerimiah 23:25 through Jerimiah 23:31; one can safely conclude that Not all dreams are from God, as well. They are nothing more than dreams. If you have a dream that is the word of God, “You will know it!”
Daniel 2 pretty much suggest (without coming right out and saying it) that there is a psychic connection between people that can be accessed under the right conditions. However, this access is by permission of God only and if abused will result in consequences.
In Joel 2, verse 28 in particular, it is pretty clearly stated that in the last days folks will prophesy, dream and see visions. This is also supported in Acts 2:17.
As you can see: In using The Bible as a guide, we can certainly figure out the so-called mysteries of our dreams, “If we really want to.” We just have to want to. “And…” How can you go wrong with God inspired information concerning dreams?
