The Anatomy of a dream Part. 2
In part 1 of anatomy of a dream, I said, every dream is filled with instructions and the purpose of these instructions are to primarily reveal the origin of past, current or future events. In fact a dream is the revelation to the mystery of things that’s going or has gone on in one’s past, present and future.
I hope you are prepared to venture into deep waters with me because we are about to unlock some very interesting insight. I am certain after reading this insight it will amplify your desire to know more about dreams and ultimately set you on course to unlock your own dreams.
Dreams are coded messages or mysteries. A mystery is something that is kept secret, hidden or covered. Whatever process is used to unlock or uncover a mystery is called a revelation. Revelation is literally the revealing or uncovering of something that was once hidden or kept secret. Now here is where it gets interesting, the believers of Jesus Christ are given the revelation to the mysteries of the Kingdom if they continue to walk in the spirit, as a benefit of being a follower of Jesus Christ. However, those that do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ will automatically find it difficult to understand the mysteries he gives and for the most part will need an interpreter to bring clarity to these mysteries.
Let us review scripture to validate the above statement. As a reminder, I gave as an example in my previous article “The Anatomy of a dream part 1” Matthew chapter 13 concerning the parable of the Sower who sowed seeds in different types of grown that produced different challenges and eventually gave different results. If we work our way to verse 10, the disciples said to Jesus, “Why do you speak to them in a parable”?
Please, review carefully what Jesus response was, “It is given unto “you” to know the “mysteries” of the kingdom of heaven, but to “them” it is not given”. So Jesus made it unequivocally clear that those that follow him (unto you it is given, meaning his followers) but unto them (non-followers) the mysteries are not given. Another important point to note is the word “given”, which is past tense. Jesus is suggesting that as long as you are a follower of him you are already in possession of the mysteries, Wow!
In an effort to support Jesus’ statement let’s see what Deuteronomy 29:29 has to say concerning this spiritual insight, “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law”. Again as you can see it is God that possesses all secrets, which is the same as mysteries and those mysteries that are revealed (revelation) he gives to those that follow him. How do I know he gives it to his followers, well who is being addressed in this scripture? The children of Israel that’s who, who are in fact the people of God. Also in Amos 3:7, it clearly states, “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. Can you not see the pattern of this provocative spiritual insight? God reveals his secrets/mysteries to his people. Before I go any further with this teaching why don't you ask God right now to reveal unto you the mysteries that’s going on in your life, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Now, let’s take this a little deeper. I have been repeating into your understanding that your dreams which are coded messages or mysteries can not be understood or unlock without revelation. The truth is, a revelation is a revealed mystery/secret or a mystery made known. The Holy Spirit is the one responsible for revealing the mysteries, why you may ask. Well, the revelation of a mystery is in fact the truth about what's being revealed. With this being said, scripture clearly says to us that the Holy Spirit is truth and it is his job to guide us into all truth, John 16:13 also see 1 Corinthians 2:10.
Again, let us retrieve biblical facts that revelation is the precursor in unlocking mysteries. Romans 16:25 reads, “Now to him that is of power to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began”. So in this passage of scripture Paul is indicating to the Church of Rome that revelation will always be the precursor to unlocking mysteries.
Ephesians 3:3 says the following, “How that by revelation he made known to me the mystery; as I wrote before in few words. Folks it doesn't get any clearer than this, your dreams are not just dreams. Your dreams are keys to unlocking so many hidden and confusing things in your life. All through the bible as we will discover in these teachings dreams were used to instruct, guide, protect, warn and speak of future events.
Dreams will always reveal the root of a matter, simply because a dream is spiritual and like I made mentioned before all things has its origin in the spirit world. Genesis chapters 1 and 2 give us clear evidence of this. Genesis 1 and 2 tells us about the creation of the heavens and the earth, however during this creation there is a word that was used frequently and that word was the word “let”. Now let’s define the word let, the word let means to allow or permit something or someone to move from one place to the other. The point I am attempting to make here is, every time God said let there be light, grass, animals etc. where were these things being allowed or permitted to come from to exist in our natural world? Well I’ll tell you where they came from they came from the parent world of our natural world and that is the spirit world. Another piece of evidence, Ephesians 1:4 states that we were chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world. If that is the case then where were we prior to the foundation of the world? In any event the spirit world is our parent world, and because we can not understand the spirit world our dreams are filled with symbols that need to be interpreted to reveal the message/mystery.
Unfortunately, I must end here but trust me we will dig even deeper, again I am just laying the foundation so that you will have a solid understanding during the course of these teachings. What I would like to leave you with is simply this; God has been speaking to you through many means. Dreams are just one of those means and the purpose of these dreams are to keep you from perishing and keeping you on your road to your destiny.
Please join me tomorrow as we go into understanding symbols signs, characters and other things we see in our dreams to bring about spiritual clarity. Also, I am currently working on the videos for these teachings to give a more visual to our teachings. Again tell a friend send a friend request whatever, they need this information. Also do let me know if I am making this as simple as possible, I don’t want there to be no confusion, please let me know your comments……
