Dream interpretation

My opinion is that as Christian's we should not dismiss trying to find meaning in the dreams that we have as some are from God.

BUT also

We should be very careful to use proper discernment in our interpretation when we do:

• Is it biblically sound e.g. the dream may have felt good but was it sin - wrong interpretations may make your heart justify sin when you wake up.*
• How did it feel? Most likely if it made you feel rough then the dream was of the enemy, a nightmare. Sometimes a warning from God too though.
• Maybe it is just your brain processing the day if you dream about potatoes if you had a jacket potato for dinner lol.






Christian dream interpretation? Are our dreams from God? this IMO is a good bible based website, and this is some useful advice from it:
If it is, prayerfully consider what God would have you do in response to your dream (James 1:5).

In Scripture, whenever anyone experienced a dream from God, God always made the meaning of the dream clear, whether directly to the person, through an angel, or through another messenger (Genesis 40:5–11; Daniel 2:45; 4:19). When God speaks to us, He makes sure His message is clearly understood.






*I don't think I have been led into sin by a dream but I have been led astray by them before e.g. in a time when I was desperate for a breakthrough, the enemy gave a dream of doing a job that I was not ready for. I tried this job and found I had to leave as it was a massive stress. I have been led into big seasons of struggle and confusion as I had put my hope in a dream that was not of God.

Sometimes we should do this:

Psalm 73:20 English Standard Version (ESV)
20 Like a dream when one awakes,
O Lord, when you rouse yourself, you despise them as phantoms.




Hope I have not been too serious, watch out for Nephilim size potatoes running after you with a peeler.

Act 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

I have had several prophetic dreams in my 40+ years of being a Christian, and many more non prophetic dreams. When I do have a prophetic dream, I can always remember every detail of that dream.
My last Godly dream was about 8 years ago.

In my dream I was driving in the mountains on a very windy road. I was being chased by another car. I kept driving faster, and faster trying to get away from who ever was chasing me. I went around a very sharp turn, and went over a cliff, and so did the other car chasing me, and then I woke up. Later that day the told me the interpretation of the dream. The Lord said "I was the one chasing you in the car behind you, and that I have been chasing you for years. Now that you have crashed, and I have your attention, from now on you are going to follow me where I lead you to."

I have learned since then that I no longer go where I want to go, and that most of the time the Lord leads me into places I would not normally want to go.

I have had one very prophetic dream and several that I feel have been clearly spiritual in meaning. The one that was prophetic was a very short dream where I was urging my dad (who had in reality been diagnosed with lung cancer and was to undergo a very invasive surgery in the next few days ) to get another CT scan before he had surgery. The morning after, I was watching the 700 Club and during their prayer time, they said something about a man being healed of lung cancer. I immediately thought, "God, is that for my Dad?" I ended up telling my dad about the dream and the 700 club and he then informed me that at his pre-op, they had done a routine chest x-ray and he didn't see the spot on his lungs that was there before. Because of these events, my dad spoke up to his friend, an anesthesiologist and I believe told the dr. who was to be performing the surgery. Long story short....my dad went into the hospital to get his surgery done early in the morning several days later, but the dr. ordered another CT scan (which my dad and I both knew was unusual to be doing at that stage). The nurse came running down the hall a couple of hours later, burst into the room and excitedly told us that he did not have to have surgery. I will never forget the feeling that washed over me in that moment. It was the most humbling, grateful feeling and I immediately started weeping as I knew God had truly intervened on behalf of my dad. The dr. ended up coming in the room a little later and dryly told us that the tumor had shrunk by such and such percent and they would just keep an eye on it now, etc. I asked how normal this was and his reply was, "I've never seen anything like this." We were not timid in glorifying God (how could we be?) to the dr, nurses and another patient who was sharing the room with my dad, not to mention all the other friends and family that we got to tell on the phone and in person as the days went on. Pretty cool story, huh?

My other dreams have not been so clearly prophetic, but I knew instantly when I woke that they were spiritual and from God. One of them was really about praying for the world, the state of the world (it was a very vivid dream where at the end I was sitting on a porch with some sort of spiritual person (a woman) who took my hand and bowed her head in prayer -- in the dark right in front of us was a huge brilliantly-colored and glowing world globe. I have always understood that dream to mean that God wants me to be active in praying for the state of the world and there was a feeling of urgency in my dream that we do not have much time left.

My last dream is very personal in nature. Without going into detail, I knew instantly that the dream was spiritual when I woke up and I believe the meaning of the dream is that God revealed to me that He was going to bring a spiritual man into my life and that my old marriage is not going to be revived. (I am going through a divorce and have been separated for two years after being in an emotionally abusive marriage for 25 years to an unbeliever).
