Q:

Does God reveal things through dreams and visions?


A:

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 that felt extremely real. I did not see myself at all.. But I felt myself floating and could see i was over a very large wheat field.. I saw only that.. I remember feeling pure peace and comfort and wanted to stay and continue going, I heard what I believe was god’s voice telling me I must return and I had other things to take care of.. I could see my feet touching the tips of wheat and awoke.. Here is thee part I have difficulty explaining. I sat up and felt a feeling thats hard to describe. It was utter peace and nothing else.. as if my body was light and I had no thoughts in my head .. just relief and peace.. I never to this day have felt that again..

    I had a dream a few years ago where god basically told me to change my direction in life. Here’s the dream. I begin walking down a cold dimly lit muddy path with no shoes, I then come to a huge tree, I look at it and then out of nowhere a giant cyclops steps out from behind it hold a giant club, he looks at me with anger, he then acts like he is about to smash me. I then begin laughing, the giant asks me “why are you laughing?” I then reply because of JOB 22:15. I wake up not having never read the bible really or JOB so my first thought is where is a bible and is JOB 22:15 even in the bible. lol After finding the scripture I knew it was from God based on the unhealthy ways I was living.

    Been dreaming of God and Jesus for as long as I know myself. Usually God gives me instructions of what I have to do, speaking to me from the clouds. Seen and spoke to Jesus and seen heaven( dream was nights- first night the rapture, second night life in heaven. God instructed me to start a preschool, instructing me to teach children about Him. Started in 2013. Only 2 children presently. Not easy for I have no stable income, but obeying Gods instruction gives me great satisfaction and a peace that surpass all understanding. He’s been providing for me eversince. SOooooo blessed! I need spiritual guidance.
