Christian Visions and Dreams Bible Source
Visions and dreams were given from the Lord from many souls from Abraham in the Book of Genesis to John in the Book of Revelation. These visions and dreams were given to God's people obviously, but even enemies of God were given these visions and dreams. As you will discover, the Bible reveals that basically a vision occurs while one was awake and a dream while they were asleep.
However, dreams are also called visions of night in the Bible.
In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep
falleth on men,
But, both happened when they were able to leave the worldly plain of
existence and enter this Spiritual realm as to be able to see and/or
hear God's message.
Now, many that do not receive visions and dreams have chosen to suggest that God no longer speaks to mankind in visions and dreams. However, God has done so in the Old Testament, the New Testament and has vowed to give visions and dreams to Men and Women ... Even
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God,
I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your
daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and
your old men shall dream dreams:
18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour
out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
So, you choose whether to believe man or God.
Visions and Dreams in the Bible and Today
If you choose to read this Christian visions and dreams study and
look up the Christian visions and dreams scriptures shared, you will
be more aware of the spiritual aspect of Christian visions and dreams
and perhaps ... Open your mind and heart enough to receive Christian
visions and dreams from God for the Bible is clear that in the End
Times, God will pour out His Spirit and many people will have
Christian visions and dreams.
The first thing to figure out according to the Christian visions and dreams Bible verse, when you have had a vision or dream,
is the source. Is it from God or you or ... Elsewhere. Your subconscious mind, due to a multitude of business (thought on a
matter) can create dreams.
For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool's
voice is known by multitude of words.
This is like when you were a child (and even as an adult) and read a
book or watch a scary movie or a movie or book that moves your spirit
and you put so much thought into it that it brings forth dreams as
your mind searches for answers.
This makes being a Christian and having dreams and/or visions kind of
touchy and difficult to discern because most Christians do a
multitude of Christian business, which may result in dreams from what
they hear, feel and from their reading, study and in particular when
the do deep research.
So, if you have a dream after you did an intense study or read
something that really touched you ... It could be just your mind
still working on the matter while you sleep.
However, make no mistake ... God does speak to us in dreams and visions.
14 For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it
15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep
falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;
16 Then He openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their
17 That He may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide
pride from man.
God tries to reach those He seeks to talk to while they are awake,
but they hear not ... So, He comes to them in dreams.
The Bible is filled with Scripture that reveals that visions and
dreams can an do come from God and we are to act on these visions and
dreams so we must determine if a vision or dream was from God or us.
Discernment is a must. Let me share one more little tidbit, before we begin our Christian visions and dreams Bible verse search for Truth ... Some will share a false vision and divination not spoken by Lord.
Then the Lord said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I
sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto
them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination,
and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
Visions and Dreams in the Bible Concerns
Beware of visions of your own heart.
Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the
prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a
vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the Lord.
Never claim to have had a dream if you did not. Do not add or take
away from it.
Let one that hath a dream tell that dream faithfully.
25 I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies
in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.
26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets
that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own
27 Which think to cause my people to forget my name by
their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their
fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.
28 The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream;
and he that hath my Word, let him speak my Word faithfully.
What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the Lord.
