Did you now that the world-renowned musical masterpiece, the Messiah, was given to Handel in a dream?
Some of the world's greatest inventions, books, songs, and inspirations have also been given to us through dreams.
In the scriptures, we see that dreams have played quite a substantial role in the lives of many biblical persons
such as Jacob, Joseph (son of Israel), Pharaoh, Gideon, Mordecai and Joseph, foster-father of Jesus,
thus changing the course of history forever.
Everyone dreams and if it is true that not all dreams are from God, many, many of them are. They are usually highly symbolic and parabolic, meaning that they come in the form of parables which need to be interpreted. When on earth, Jesus spoke to the crowds mainly in parables or allegories and afterward, if any of the disciples were interested, they would pursue the Lord until He would explain the parable to them. The same is true of dreams.
Marcel and I both believe that the Lord, in His gracious and loving-kindness, guides us even in our sleep
by granting us dreams that are helpful to our journey. We have seen many people's spiritual walk with the Lord
grow in depth and freedom through remembering and recording their dreams and then asking the Holy Spirit
for the wisdom to decipher "the code" so to speak. It is all so very helpful and exciting too!
We also believe that many are actually called to be "dreamers" on a more regular basis; that the Lord is releasing
this anointing (see Acts 2:17-18) on many souls for their own good, for the good of their loved ones and
in some cases for the good of their parishes, their workplace, their country. Many dreams are prophetic in nature
in the sense that they impart knowledge which we would otherwise not have for ourselves and for others.
They are truly meant to be a blessing.
We've found that one of the most helpful ways to learn about interpreting dreams is to read or listen to
an actual dream being interpreted. That's why we have written posts of actual dreams the Lord
has given us or others, together with the interpretation.
Dreaming a dream is actually the easy part; the biblical interpretation of a dream is where the hard work is.
We have acquired some knowledge of biblical dream interpretation along the years and we wish
to pass this knowledge on to you, in the hopes that you will be encouraged to pursue the meaning
of your own dreams. We can assure you from our own experience that an exciting adventure awaits you!
