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. Timothy says:

    How do I know my dreams are being manifest?

    Thanks to Billy Graham and the team behind this organisation.
    My secret is simple, I see visions and do come true. That is the least Gift God gave me on this planet to guide me. Some are beyond my understanding and I have been sharing them with different people across the globe but few have been able to interprete them for me. I still need answers for some of my dreams and visions because I know I have that gift with me 🙂

  4. Jerry Hardison says:

    I’ve only been seeking the Lord 4 years, but I have visions that I would expect to hear from a pastor,or a prophet. Is this normal?

    I only completed my junior high school education in 2010, and everyday I dream of going to school on that very jhs level again, swimming on a river everyday. I really don’t understand. Plz help me here, is it from God.

  6. Lydiaruth Thompson says:

    I am a firm believer. I believe that God made the Heavens and the earth and that He is very real. For the past years i have had dreams. I’ve recorded many, however they are not normal dreams. Probably 60% of the dreams I even have come true. Others are lessons or warnings. I want answers, I know I must protect this gift because I know it is from God, but there must be some way I can minister to at least one person by this.. I want answers. If dreams from God to come true are very rare, why me?
