Interpretation of Visions and Dreams Series 2 of 5 - Dreams

Note: Added 3/30/20, we can have dreams from God in which God (a representation of God)is not in it. This teaching is only referencing dreams in which God(a representation of God) is in it.

On Sunday, February 9, 2020 at 12:50 am, I heard the word tomorrow in my spirit, it was said strongly and repeatedly. I didn't get any further details, didn't understand what that meant.

On Sunday, February 9, 2020 at 7:00 pm, I started thinking about when Jesus told me that I would be moving in the Spirit. I went to search for that journal entry and then I started to read other journal entries that I had, while searching for them; a lot of what I read were dreams and visions. Then, I started to think about all the dreams and visions that I've had. To make a long story short, later in 2018, I asked God the father for the ability to be able to interpret dreams, visions and have knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning, like Daniel in Daniel 1:17. Approximately 14 months later, I have been given the gift. Now, I didn't receive this gift as I expected to receive. I thought, it would be automatic. I will tell you the supernatural part of this towards the end of this teaching. However, as we read in 1 Chronicles 29, God will give us gifts for building his temple. Now, in 1 Chronicles 29, the gifts given to King Solomon to build God's temple were natural resources. If God gives natural gifts to build his temple, how much more will God give us spiritual gifts to build God's temple;which btw, under the Law of the Spirit, is our bodies, and the other body parts of Christ according to Paul in 1 Corinthians 3:16. Where is the proof text? In Exodus 31 "Then the Lord said to Moses, “See, I have chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills— to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of crafts."

To these four young men God gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning. And Daniel could understand visions and dreams of all kinds. - Daniel 1:17

Are dreams given to us, so that we can change the outcome or so that we can be warned and stand firm? 
Dreams are warnings (a statement or event that indicates a possible or impending danger, problem, or other unpleasant situation) for us regarding:
  • Trouble - difficulty or problems. Proof text: Genesis 37:5-35, Daniel 2-3. When we are given a dream about something good, it's because in order to get to that good part, there will be trouble. My example: Saw husband in a dream (not vision) deep revelation in a dream.
  • Danger - the possibility of suffering harm or injury. Proof text: Genesis 20:3Genesis 31:24Matthew 2:12-23. When we are being warned of danger we can change the outcome by listening to the Lord and trust him (if it's a situation in which he is giving us instructions) and or repentance, and God's grace and mercy (if it's a situation in which we've sinned and don't know)! If we choose to be disobedient we will be judged. My example: Someone was trying to break into my car while I was in it.
  • Judgement - a misfortune or calamity viewed as a divine punishment. Proof text: Daniel 4, Genesis 40. When we are judged we cannot change the outcome with repentance, and God's grace and mercy! We should still repent, but for that season we are going to suffer the consequences of our disobedience or failure to repent, and God's grace and mercy will get us through the punishmentMy example: Bitterness towards God [1 Corinthians 11:31,32]
Which viewpoint do we dream in?
Viewpoint is defined as the position from which something or someone is observed.

Viewpoint #1: When we dream (included trances ad open visions) we are in it ourselves and we are not seeing ourselves from an outer dimension. In other words when we are dreaming we do not have a dimensional view point (like being in a movie, you cannot see who's watching you).
  • Proof text: Daniel 2:31-35 “Your Majesty looked, and there before you stood a large statue—an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance. The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were all broken to pieces and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth.
Viewpoint #2: We will see ourselves, and we will be watching us as it is happening (like watching a movie, in which we are the character). In other words, we see ourselves in it and as we are having the vision we are watching ourselves from an outer dimension.

    How do we receive dreams from God?
    As I mentioned in the teaching The 4 Ways We Are Led By God, God speaks to us and leads us in our dreams. In Daniel 2:29-30 Daniel was speaking to King Nebuchadnezzar about the King's dreams and visions. Daniel told king Nebuchadnezzar "As Your Majesty was lying there, your mind turned to things to come, and the revealer of mysteries (God) showed you what is going to happen. As for me, this mystery has been revealed to me, not because I have greater wisdom than anyone else alive, but so that Your Majesty may know the interpretation and that you may understand what went through your mind." From reading Daniel 2, we know that dreams happen in our mind (soul). Since, our dreams happen in our soul (thoughts, feelings, emotions), the more our flesh is influenced by the world, the more it has an impact on the kind of dreams that we have (Godly dreams vs demonic dreams), and the more our flesh is influenced by the word, the more it has an impact on having Godly dreams.

    "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." - Matthew 6:33

    For clarification, watch the video below!

    As I also mentioned in the first part of this series, visions (open, closed, and trance) are meant to tell us the things to come for ourselves and others. However, dreams are to warn us of future danger, trouble, and or judgement for ourselves. In this video, we are going to speak about interpretation of dreams.

    How do we interpret dreams (I am not referencing visions in this teaching)?
    #1. Everything God the father uses are spiritual representations (parables) of things that would be obvious to us. 
    • Proof text: In Daniel 2:27-48 (Note: In verse 27 the King let's us know that he had dreams and visions. I believe that the dream that King Nebuchadnezzar had in Daniel 2 was a mixture of dreams and visions; Daniel 3). King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream and God used metals (iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold). In Daniel 4 King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream and God used metals and sowing/reaping (agriculture).
    • Proof text: Genesis 40 The baker had a dream and God used bake good. The cupbearer had a dream and God used wine and grapes.
    • For example: When I have a dream and it's from God he uses my mother to represent himself. Why? It's not because my mother is super holy. It's because she's the one person except for God, that I speak to the most and whom I am the closest to.
    • For example: I had two dreams on December 17, 2019 (I woke up from the dream at 12:15am). God used someone in my immediate family that I speak to perhaps once per three months to represent satan. This person is not a born-again believer and is demonized. God used this same person to warn me about someone breaking into my car to rob me while I was sleeping in it during the refiners fire. Now I did not know this until February 9, 2020. Now back to the two dreams that happened on December 17, 2019.  The first dream represented the state of my mind (soul), and the second dream represented my race. Now that I understand the interpretation of the dream, I am just like OMG it was so obvious. How come I did not understand the interpretation right away? Like, I don't know how much more obvious God could have made it.

      #2. God will use the same people in our dreams to spiritually represent whom he want to represent. Meaning, he's not going to use my mom to represent himself in one dream, and then my grandma in another, that would confuse me (us). In 1 Corinthians 14:33 Paul wrote that God is not a God of confusion but of peace.

        How do we know that it's a dream from God:
        • We wake up immediately after it's done - Jeremiah 31:26 - At this I awoke and looked around. My sleep had been pleasant to me.
        • Your sleep had been pleasant. This doesn't mean the dream itself will not cause us to meditate on it. 
        • Dreams from God will never evoke demonic fear, or sinful passions and or temptations  - Jeremiah 31:26 - At this I awoke and looked around. My sleep had been pleasant to me. James 1:13-14 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed.
