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 kept having dreams about going back to house I grew up in at the time I never thought about it or even missed it . Could this be from God?

    God speaks to me in dreams. How I know it comes from God is because they come to pass.

      I had a very strange dream a few days ago regarding something I have been praying for everyday now for more ththan three yrs. Because I think about it a lot…how do I know if it was just me dreaming or if it was from God?

      I ask because it felt so strangely real and I woke up actually thinking that my prayer had been answered and grabbed my phone to spread the good news…then realize Ihad been dreaming. (I was awake grabbing my phone before realizing I had dreamt it.)

    A continuation for the previous post: There was I believe a third child(a baby) in the dream. It also was on the horse and either fell or was thrown off the horse and down to the ground. This dream was so prominent when I woke up I just had to share it. Just an FYI… Even though I thought that was Jesus in the dream it was not.
