The anatomy of a dream Pt. 1
As we begin our teaching on dreams and their understanding, I can assure you that you are in for a time of not only revelation but you will begin to see dreams like you've never seen them before.
Today I would like to begin our teaching on “The anatomy of a dream”. Every dream is filled with instructions and the purpose of these instructions is primarily to show the origin of past, current or future events. In fact a dream is the revelation to the mystery of things that’s going on in one’s everyday life.
Now, the above statement is noteworthy, in that dreams are always showing things from a spiritual origin using signs and symbols. The truth is a dream is the same as a parable, an interpretation of symbols, characters and signs to reveal its hidden mystery or greater understanding.
As an example in Matthew 13: 1-17, Jesus spoke of a parable concerning a Sower who sowed seeds on different types of ground and from these different types of ground produced different challenges, which concluded in different results. Now just like a dream, Jesus began to interpret the symbols and characters to bring about a greater understanding or unlocked the mystery. The Sower in this parable would be the Preacher, the seeds would be the word of God and the different grounds would be not only the hearts of men but the condition their hearts were in. The mystery that was uncovered by the interpretation/revelation of Jesus Christ was that a man’s heart will determine how he accepts, sustain and maintain the word of God In his life and his producing fruit will be as a result of that.
Let me give another example. In Matthew 12:43-44, Jesus gives the following story, “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
Now let’s analyze what’s being said, Jesus said when an unclean spirit is gone out of a “MAN”, however when the unclean spirit desired to return he called the man his “HOUSE”. So dreaming of a house would usually represent someone’ life. Another example, trees in a dream are symbolic of people’s lives also. In psalm 1:3, it reads, “ And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
So, again just like a dream/parable in a metaphoric wording is replacing the person with a tree and in this case it gives further revelation of this person being one of strength and always successful at whatever he does.
I want to make clear, not all dreams are from God. In fact there are three types of dreams and they are: dreams from God, dreams from Satan and dreams from ourselves. Also, everything in a dream has a meaning such as colors, voices, odors, size, distance the most insignificant things in a dream can carry a world of meaning.
Throughout these teachings you’ll discover I will be using the words origin and root interchangeably. You are about to discover that dreams are always revealing the root of matters, and as you will discover that root is always spiritual.
Please, I need to cement into your understanding that the spirit world is the parent world to our natural world. Everything that exists in our natural world is as a result of the spirit world. Thus the importance of our dreams, because again it’s showing things from the spirit world attempting to invade our natural world. Therefore for the most part the dream is giving us the head’s up as to either pray against it if its intent is to delay, disable or destroy us. On the other hand if it’s a good dream we must pray and agree with what God wants to do so that there would be no delay or hijacking of our destiny in our natural world as it relates to the dream.
Please I admonish you to tell a friend, add someone to the group spread the word to those that you know are dreamers concerning these informative teachings we’re about to get into. At the end of these teachings I can assure you, you will begin doing your own interpretations and gaining the revelation needed to unlock the mysteries in your life and the life of your friends and love ones.
