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.

Job 4:13

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 now.

Acts 2:17-18

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.

Ecclesiastes 5:3

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.

Job 33:14-17

14 For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.
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 instruction,

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.

Jeremiah 14:14

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.

Jeremiah 23:16

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.

Jeremiah 23:25-28

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 heart;
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.

That being said, let's take us a little Christian Visions and Dreams Bible journey into the realm of visions and dreams. The Word of God has been coming in visions and dreams from the beginning.

Genesis 15:1

After these things the Word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.

Visions and Dreams in the Bible Warning

One of the most popular dreams in the Bible for most is Jacob dreamed of Angels climbing ladder up and down from Heaven. God spoke to him of future events.

Genesis 28:12-17

12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to Heaven: and behold the Angels of God ascending and descending on it.
13 And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;
14 And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
15 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.
16 And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not.
17 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of Heaven.

This was an actual dream as he awoke from sleep. Note that Jacob believed that that specific spot was a gateway to God.

God spoke to Jacob (Israel) in visions of the night.

Genesis 46:2

And God spake unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.

If there is a Prophet among you, God will make Himself known to him in a vision.

Baalam heard God's words which saw the vision falling into trance with eyes open.

Numbers 24:4

Obviously he was awake yet in a trance. This is the Spiritual realm. Peter was praying and in a trance when vision of sheet came.

Acts 11:5

I was in the city of Joppa praying: and in a trance I saw a vision, A certain vessel descend, as it had been a great sheet, let down from Heaven by four corners; and it came even to me:

While in prayer, a vision may come because you are in that Spiritual realm.

Daniel 9:21

Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.

Dream Interpretation

Real Christian Visions and Dreams Bible Verse point of interest ... Dream Interpretation is a Spiritual gift from God. Joseph and Daniel were two of the dream interpreters in the Bible. There was Baker and Butler that dreamed and Joseph interpreted their dreams. One was a dream of upcoming death.

5 And they dreamed a dream both of them, each man his dream in one night, each man according to the interpretation of his dream, the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, which were bound in the prison.
6 And Joseph came in unto them in the morning, and looked upon them, and, behold, they were sad.
7 And he asked Pharaoh's officers that were with him in the ward of his Lord's house, saying, Wherefore look ye so sadly to day?

Joseph said interpretations of dreams belongs to God.

Genesis 40:8

And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations belong to God? tell me them, I pray you.

Joseph interpreted the dreams for both. Then Pharaoh of Egypt had a dream and Joseph was called to interpret the dream, which he did. Joseph made it clear that we are to give credit to God when interpreting dreams.

And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.
