Does God reveal things through dreams and visions?


The Bible indicates that God revealed His will to selected people through dreams or visions in Scriptures such as Genesis 37:5-10; 1 Kings 3:5-15; Daniel, chapters 2 and 7; Matthew 1:20; 2:13,19; and Acts 10:9-16; 16:9.

God may communicate through dreams or visions even today, but we need to carefully check any such guidance we receive with Scripture and godly counsel to be sure it is from the Lord. Anything which contradicts Scripture is not from God. Our minds and even Satan are capable of producing great deception in such subjective areas.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 shows that God has revealed His will to us primarily through His Word. It says, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

    I had a dream but I don’t know if it was from God or not I don’t want to misinterpret it. It seemed so real, that when I woke up it too I me a while to realize it was just a dream.

    I had cancer and was going through chemotherapy treatments. I was laying in my bed, sick to my stomach and scared about the future. I was praying to God when he gave me a vision of being at the feet of Jesus. I was very close to His ankles. I saw the bottom of His robe and the tops of His feet. I immediately felt His peace and comfort and I knew I was going to be OK, whatever the outcome! That was 5 years ago. My pastor said it was a gift from God. I’m so thankful and still in awe to this day! To God be the Glory!!!
