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.”

    Genesis 37: 1-10 (NIV)
    Joseph’s Dreams
    37 Jacob lived in the land where his father had stayed, the land of Canaan.
    2 This is the account of Jacob’s family line.
    Joseph, a young man of seventeen, was tending the flocks with his brothers, the sons of Bilhah and the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives, and he brought their father a bad report about them.
    3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than any of his other sons, because he had been born to him in his old age; and he made an ornate[a] robe for him. 4 When his brothers saw that their father loved him more than any of them, they hated him and could not speak a kind word to him.
    5 Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more.

  2. Paul Koroma says:

    Your Vision is your God’s giving gift / calling. whatever you see supernaturally in your dream or vision and you did not understand ask Him again or you go seek spiritual counseling but please pray and ask God to lead you before you go.
    Jeremiah 29:11 New King James Version (NKJV)

    11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
    Please read this Verse over and over again and see what what God’s thought is concerning you.

    1 Samuel 3:7-10King James Version (KJV)

    7 Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord, neither was the word of the Lord yet revealed unto him.

    8 And the Lord called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here

    1. Paul Koroma says:

      1 Samuel 3:7-10King James Version (KJV)

      7 Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord, neither was the word of the Lord yet revealed unto him.

      8 And the Lord called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And Eli perceived that the Lord had called the child.

      9 Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, Lord; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place.

      10 And the Lord came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.

  5. Elva says:

    I am 44yrs old. I started having visions at 22. I accidently overdosed on my 21st birthday & flatlined. My heart stopped for 7 seconds but I could still hear everything going on around me. I was surrounded by Dr.s in E.R. I didn’t see a bright light or anything out of the ordinary but after this near death experience my visions began. Over the years theyve become more frequent & more vivid as my spiritual connection with God has become much stronger. My senses are highly sensitive now as I believe a result of this. God blanketed me with his grace & spared my life for a special purpose. I Love him so much!!!!

  8. Chris says:

    As a young man, I had an incredible vision of Jesus, and in the vision, Jesus laid His hands upon my head. I felt such an electric, shocking, warm feeling of peace move throughout my body that I ran through the house screaming! It woke my parents up, and they thought someone had broken into our house. All of what I saw in this vision, including many physical items that we did not have outside of our house, had appeared when I was at college a few months later. This vision was REAL. I cannot explain it…but I KNOW what I saw! This was REAL. I’ve been teaching the Word of God via a weekly Bible study column, and a weekly radio Bible Study program for years. I love the Lord, and I’m telling you…this vision was real.
