Dream Interpretation

AUTHOR: Gary Fishman

It is impossible to read through the Bible and not notice the fact that God speaks through dreams. Throughout the Old and New Testaments, the Lord used dreams to communicate His message, both to believers and non-believers. The purpose of this manual is to equip you in the area of dream interpretation so that God’s messages will not fall by the wayside. Just think for a moment about all of the divine revelation that is lost because the body of Christ is so lacking in knowledge when it comes to dreams.

The 2nd chapter of Acts tells us that the last days would be marked by a great increase of prophetic revelation, including dreams and visions. We need, as the people of God, to step boldly into what the Lord desires to do on the Earth in our day. When Jesus speaks to us in any manner we can not be content with missing even a single word. If we are to be effective and fruitful in our lives and ministries we have got to become attuned to His voice. The Church has tried for too long to get by with human wisdom and the traditions of men. It is time that we begin to get our strategies and blueprints directly from the One who created the heavens and the Earth. The Lord desires to speak to our hearts and minds so that we can fulfill the destinies and plans that He has designed for us.

I challenge you to become fully equipped to discern God’s voice as He speaks into your life. In so doing you will also place yourself into the position of learning to speak prophetically to others. Just as with any other ministry, the more you practice and persevere the more adept you will become. Although some might ultimately be more gifted than others in dream interpretation, I believe that all of God’s children can develop basic dream interpretation skills in partnership with the Holy Spirit. Acts 2 gives us the qualifications for those people who can receive and speak out prophetic revelation:

In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. (Acts 2:17, 18)

I pray that the Lord will help you as you learn to unlock the door of understanding and revelation, which is the inheritance of all God’s beloved children. (Ephesians 1:17, 18)
