Dreams and Visions

Dreams play a significant role in our lives. Neuroscientists theorize that we need dreams in order to replenish ourselves.

Scriptures mention dreams and visions 224 times! One third of the bible pertains to visions and dreams. God came to Abraham to tell him that his heirs would number more than the stars. Jacob dreamt of angels climbing up and down a ladder that went up to heaven, then later he wrestled with an angel in a dream. Joseph (old testament) dreamt of the sun, moon and eleven stars bowing down to him. The Magi’s dream warned the three kings to evade Herod. Joseph’s (new testament) dream directed him to flee Egypt with Mary and the angel Gabriel came to Mary to foretell of the birth of Jesus.

And just as fascinating; Beatle John McCartney composed the entire melody to the song “Yesterday” in a dream. The inventor Elias Howe invented the first lock-stitch sewing machine from a dream he had. Champion golfer Jack Nicklaus was experiencing a slump in his golf game back in 1964. He had a dream in which he was holding his golf club differently. Upon awakening he applied his new “grip” to his real life game and literally overnight he became and continued to be a golfing sensation.

If dreams play such an important part in the Bible, it seems natural to assume that God’s spirit can come to us too in our dreams. Just maybe it is God’s way to penetrate our soul in order to communicate His love at a time when we need Him most.

    We must have ears that can hear the whisper of God’s voice. Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

    Thanks very much for your uplifting, encouraging & inspiring article about dreams. Some dreams are nice I would like to continue with them, but they are very short & sometimes not complete. Other dreams are very scary & I always cut them short by shouting with the name of “Jesus”
    Other dreams foretell a happening. For example when my father died, I had a dream of having a dead body near me on the bed. So today I learn that the Lord, God’s spirit penetrates our soul during dreaming. Thanks once more. God bless you.

    First how many people noticed it was Paul McCartney not John McCartney who wrote Yesterday? I am waiting for the Lord to whisper to me in my dreams something to revive the way I used to feel about life! It seems my Guardian Angel left me many years ago and I need her back!

  10. Jesse Swartz says:

    Dear Aurther,

    Your Guardian angel hasn’t left you honey, perhaps you just need to reawakin your sprirt! I suggest you pray the prayer of Jabez, it will work wonders in your life:

    Lord, SHOW ME and give perspective on how you have blessed me and continue to bless me in the way you see fit,
    Lord, USE ME and help me make the most of the opportunities You provide to expand my territory,
    Lord, FILL ME and help me to stand strong in your presence and your power,
    Lord, GUARD ME and help me to stand strong as you protect me from evil. Keep me pure.

    May the Lord bless you!

    Soon after my Dad passed from this life into eternity, I had a dream in which he was walking toward me and had a beautiful smile on his face. At another time, many years later, I was asleep, when I felt a gentle and loving touch of a hand on mine, and could think and could think of no one but Jesus who could be so very gentle with me.

    Shortly after my Dad passed from this life into eternity, I had a dream in which I saw him walking toward me with a beautiful smile on his face. I believe this was God’s way of letting me know that my Dad had gained eternal salvation. I believe that another reason he was so happy was because he was reunited with my dear Mother whom he had lost in childbirth with me. He was married for 15 years when called her to Himself, and 30 years as a widower. He never remarried, because in his own words, he could never find anyone like Anna. What a beautiful thing to say about my dear Mother, and I have never forgotten what he said that day when I was just 13. It was 65 years ago. God gave me graciously to my Dad, and he graciously gave me back to God.

    Another time, just a very short time ago, a week or two ago,I was asleep, when I felt a gentle and loving hand on mine, and I was sure that it was the hand of Jesus, because only He could be so gentle and loving that I was not frightened by His touch. Jesus’ touch was something so powerfully good that I did not pull away from Him. I felt the goodness coming from Him, and it was very consoling.

    Shortly after my Dad passed from this life into eternity, I had a dream in which I saw him walking toward me with a beautiful smile on his face. I believe this was God’s way of letting me know that my Dad had gained eternal salvation, and I was extremely grateful t God. This happened in 1962, and I can still see my Dad in that dream to this day.

It started out as a dream, but became very real as I awakened, then His beautiful touch left me.
