Dreams, Visions, and more Dreams!

 For God may speak in one way or in another,

Yet man does not perceive it.
In a dream, in a vision of the night,
When deep sleep falls upon men,
While slumbering on their beds,
Then He opens the ears of men,
And seals their instruction. Job 33:14-16

The Holy Spirit has communicated with me for many years through visions and dreams. Dreams are one of the ways that the Holy Spirit reveals his truth to us. I enjoy my dreams for this reason. I want to receive God's truth unfiltered. Dreams give us our instructions so that we do not lean on our own understanding of the plans and purposes of God. Proverbs 3:5-8, Jeremiah 33:3.

God's Truth Unfiltered

In order to turn man from his deed,
And conceal pride from man,

He keeps back his soul from the Pit,
And his life from [c]perishing by the sword. 
Job 33:17-18

I realised a long time ago the importance of dreams in my life. The Holy Spirit bypasses the arguer in our hearts using dreams and visions. Acts 10:10-16. The dream is designed to speak to our souls at night through our spirits so that the Holy Spirit can seal our instructions. It is a way for God to talk to us about significant issues in our hearts that fight against the plans and purposes of God in our lives. Fortunately, we have many examples of dreams in the bible to look at and learn how God has communicated to His people. I would suggest doing a bible study on the topic of dreams. You will be surprised by what you know about this subject.

In the meantime, here are some practical tools to help you to recall your dreams consistently.
  1. Say to yourself, I believe dreams contain a valid message
  2. Ask God to speak to you through dreams as you fall asleep.
  3. Put a journal next to your bed.
  4. Get 8 hours of sleep. (I receive dreams during nap times as well).
  5. Awaken naturally, without the use of an alarm clock.
By doing these five practical steps, we are letting God know that we are ready to receive His counsel at night, or anytime we fall asleep. In my next blog, I'll explore the principles of dream interpretation that I use to interpret dreams. Always rely on the Holy Spirit to help us interpret our dreams and visions.

15 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I have had a dream, and there is no one who can interpret it. But I have heard it said of you that you can understand a dream, to interpret it." 16 So Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, "It is not in me; God will give Pharaoh an answer of peace." Genesis 41:15-16

Hearing God on behalf of the World!

Hearing you will hear and shall not understand and seeing you will see and not perceive; 15 For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, lest they should understand with their hearts and turn so that I [b]should heal them.’ 16 But blessed are your eyes for seeing and your ears for hearing. Matt 13:14-16


Today, I was reminded by the Lord that we are called to disciple the nations for the glory of the Lord. God so loved the world that he gave His son Jesus as the ultimate price to redeem the world to himself. We have the ministry of reconciliation. Because of God’s heart to be reconciled to His creation, the body of Christ is called to speak into the heart of the nations.

For us to speak to the nations we must hear from the Holy Spirit. Our relationship with the Holy Spirit is so important in the times we are living in today. God is releasing mystery after mystery about what heaven is preparing for us now. Some of these mysteries are revealing what is going on in the hearts of man. Enoch was giving insight into plans of heaven and into the hearts of man. In Jude verses 14-16, It states:

 Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousand of His saints, 15 to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him. 16 These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage. 

We are seeing this passage of scripture play out in the world today. It’s incredible to witness the passage of scripture playout in our day. With so much corruption going on in the world, it's no wonder the Holy Spirit has begun to open the eyes and ears of believers and non-believers alike.

Jesus spoke about having eyes to see and ears to hear so we can be healed. Matt 13:14-15. We must have spiritual hunger to hear from the Lord. Through our relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the Godhead wants to take us into new levels of heavenly encounters so that we can learn to the ways of God.

I recently had a vision of a bright star moving eastward. The vision is a revelation from the Lord that speaks about the dominion of God being released on the earth. Matt 6:9-13. Get ready for fresh encounters with Holy Spirit in 2023! 

16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.” 17 And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely. Rev 22:16-17

The Jewish People's Right To Exist!

     Recently, in a dream, I was discussing with a woman about the threat that Iran posed against Israel. As we were having our conversation...
