“God may speak in one way, or in another,
Yet man does not perceive it.
In a dream, in a vision of the night,
When deep sleep falls upon men,
While slumbering on their beds,
Then He opens the ears of men,
And seals their instruction.”
God is speaking all the time. Being the God of wonder, that He is, He seldom speaks in an audible voice. Instead, He communicates in the metaphors of our life. Tuning our spirits to the broadcasts of heaven, during the day or night, opens the eyes of our heart to supernatural messages that affirm His love, His direction, His wisdom, and instruction will unlock the mysteries of His messages to us.
Throughout the Bible, God spoke in dreams, visions, angelic encounter, and even personal visits from Himself. Did you know that in the Bible, dreaming dreams is referred to 115 times and the word vision is used 79 times? If God never changes, and He spoke in dreams and visions then, why would today be any different? The Bible says in the last days, that God will pour out His spirit with visitations from heaven that will be accompanied by dreams and visions. (Joel 2:28; Acts 2:17-18)
Dreams are often discounted in our culture as irrelevant – just the result of a bad meal before bed, or too much stress, or just a process of our subconscious to maintain sanity – or some phenomenon of the New Agers. But I wonder, how often we have missed a message from our King because we have discounted it or rejected it because the enemy has a counterfeit.
In my quest to “know Him and make Him known” I have come to value my night time messages from my King. I have studied with some pretty cool dream interpreters so I keep a dream journal and spend time decoding the messages. Some seasons are definitely more active than others.
While I don’t claim to be an expert on dream interpretation, the riddles in the fresh messages from the radio tower from heaven are always intriguing to me. I do not plan to reinvent the wheel on Biblical dream interpretation. There are too many more seasoned and patient than me. I do have planned some blogs on some of the basics of learning to listen to the message your dreams are speaking to you.
But for you, my readers, my friends, maybe I can help you unlock the mystery of the hidden message from the King.
What is He saying? What is He planning? Do you have a dream that has been puzzling you?
