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.”

    When I was just 18, I went to bed like any other night. I thought I was dreaming but felt as though I was floating in the clouds looking down on my Grandparents’ farm house. I could see my grandfather lying there just inside the door way. He was dead. When I awoke the next morning, I was quite shaken by this dream. I told my mom about it. She asked if I wanted to call Grandpa just to let me know he was okay. I told her there was no need to do so. Around 6pm that evening, we got a call that my grandpa had had a massive heart attack and died…laying just inside the door of their farm house. I’m a simple person and Christian who relies on God’s grace and mercy. I still, to this day, do not understand why God allowed me to dream it.

    I had a dream that I was eating by myself at a big square table, I was sad, depressed, I felt so much rejection, hurt. Before I had my dream I knew God was calling me out to serve him, but I kept asking The Lord why do u want to use me after all I’ve done I’ve failed u Lord. And he spoke to me in my dream with a gentle voice you’re worth it! He kept repeating it to me 7 times and I cried like a baby. But the tears were not of sorrow but of joy. He healed every part of my broken heart and he reminded me that he LOVES ME and his love will never change. Nor will he leave me nor forsake me. GLORY TO GOD blessed is his name Jesus Christ, For he is the same today, tomorrow, and forever Amen!
