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.”

  2. Diana says:

    I am trying to understand what is going on with me. I have started having dreams of things that are happening to people I don’t know. Events things like that. When I have them I start praying for the problem and God to help what ever is going on. I just asked to make me a prayer warriors because I am not able to go anywhere right now. I can sit at home and pray and read His Word. Please pray for me that this from my Lord and not the devil thing he can trick me. God Bless.

      I’ll pray for you. I had a weird dream the other night too. Just ask God if it’s from him and if it’s not God will reveal it to you He won’t lead you astray.

    I believe that if people say that God reveals things to them, that he does not show favor. He will reveal the truth. God is love and he doesn’t take sides of anyone.

    Yes the word of god is primarily spoken through scriptures then those who embrace his work and commit to it are chosen to deliver it through prophecies. to those god reveals his word through dreams and whisper to them in their hearts.
