  4. 4. Presentation • Thank you for taking interest in the Dreams and Visions Seminar. • I have participated in different seminars about dreams, also I have read quite a good number of books on the subject, the ideas that are expressed here are taken from those participations and from the reading of the books mentioned ahead; most of them from a Christian perspective. • So my sharing in this seminar will be from a Christian Biblical point of view.
  5. 5. GOD COMMUNICATES WITH US • Our God is a God that likes to communicate and interrelate with his children • Acts 2:17 (NKJV) • 17 ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.
  6. 6. Shall dream dreams…
  7. 7. Some people say I never dream • James 4:2 (NKJV) • 2 You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. However the bible says that we don’t have or do not receive because we don’t ask for it
  8. 8. Through dreams God releases wisdom and knowledge Wisdom & knowledge • 1 Corinthians 12:8 (NKJV) • 8 for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit. Ha, is just a dream… • There is some people that despise dreams, but God uses them to communicate, so we shouldn’t discard them. • Some dreams are even prophetic ones.
  9. 9. Necessary is to say that Not all dreams come from God • Ecclesiastes 5:3 (NKJV) • 3 For a dream comes through much activity, And a fool’s voice is known by his many words. • In this case the word speaking in the dream is a fool’s voice.
  10. 10. God in our dreams • Dreams will show us our situation; but we need to understand that dreams are symbolic. • Do you remember Jacob’s dream about the ladder to heaven? • Or the sheaves of his brothers bowing down to his? • The sun, moon, and stars bowing down to him? • Pharaoh’s dream about the cows and the head grains • Pharaoh’s cupbearer dream? • Pharaoh’s baker dream? The majority of dreams that we have are from God, but they are symbolic.
  11. 11. Jacob’s dreams
  12. 12. Joseph’s interpretations
  13. 13. Pharaoh’s dreams
  14. 14. The Midianite’s dream
  15. 15. Your dream
  16. 16. In His hands…
  17. 17. He seals instructions in us • Job 33:14-18 (NKJV) • 14 For God may speak in one way, or in another, Yet man does not perceive it. 15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, When deep sleep falls upon men, While slumbering on their beds, 16 Then He opens the ears of men, And seals their instruction. 17 In order to turn man from his deed, And conceal pride from man, 18 He keeps back his soul from the Pit, And his life from perishing by the sword.
