Job 33:15 "In a dream, in a vision of the night,when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed";IT IS UNFORTUNATE THAT many belittle dreams!
It is important to know that God DOES SPEAK TO PEOPLE THROUGH DREAMS.
This space is not enough to do a thorough teaching on dreams, but I will just give a few vital insights.
Dreams occur when one is sleeping. Here in the book of Job, it is also called visions of the night. We notice from this verse that it occurs when deep sleep falleth upon men; in slumbering upon the bed or anywhere he slumbers.
In Genesis 15:12, Abraham fell into a deep sleep and God gave him instructions about future generations.
In Acts chapter two, Peter clearly stated that when the Spirit is poured out, men will see visions, dreams and give prophecies.
As Believers then, we ought to be receiving visions, dreams and prophecies.
This one fact is clear, one really doesn’t have to be filled with the Holy Ghost to receive dreams from God.
It must also be noted that we can receive dreams from other sources like our minds and also from demonic powers.
That doesn’t mean God doesn’t use dreams to talk to people.
This one thing is clear, when a dream comes from God, you will know it. You may deny it, you may not agree with it but in your spirit you will know it is from God.
Now why does God give dreams?
Instructions, is the major reason.
We read in Job 33 from 15 to 17, In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;
Job 33:16 Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,
Job 33:17 That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.
You see that through dreams God can give people instructions to help them find direction. God does not leave His people in utter confusion. He will guide you; one way He does that is through dreams and visions.
Right now, in the Name of our Blessed Lord Jesus, may you begin to see visions and dreams.
God bless you richly with great grace and many blessings.
