Just like with any other area of our lives, the more we discover what Satan has been doing to secure his oppression over us, the craftier he becomes.
For those of you that are frequent bible readers, I am sure you must have ascertained by now that the wisdom of the bible causes one to see things not only from an entirely different perspective but more importantly the bible elevates our understanding of our variety of situations. In today’s teaching we are about to explore an area of dream interpretation that if not carefully analyzed, it’s not only easy to become confused by certain dreams but more often than not the dreamer can be mislead through a misinterpretation of their dreams.
Make no mistake just like in your everyday life, the enemy shows up in your dreams only to execute three objectives and they are to kill you, steal from you and to destroy you according to John 10:10. However, he doesn't just arbitrarily attack you in any of these areas. The reality is, unknown to most believers Satan and his cohorts are very much legalistic and attacks with purpose in mind aided by the spiritual laws. Meaning whenever he comes at you he’s coming fully equip with the biblical law. For example, the biblical or spiritual law dictates that the people of God are destroyed due to a lack of knowledge, Hosea 4:6. This particular scripture is revealed to us, if you didn't know already, the law of destruction. Yes! You read right, In order for one to be destroyed the protocol of this law must be followed to achieve what the law has determined. Therefore to be destroyed in any area of life there must be a lacking of knowledge that otherwise would prevent destruction.
The best way that I can illustrate this understanding is by the following example. Let’s say someone has set a trap for you. Well, the trap will only be as successful as your ignorance towards it. So the fact that you don’t realize that there is a trap set for you, will ultimately secure destruction for you. On the other hand if you are aware of the trap, you cannot be destroyed because you’re aware of the trap. So in essence you knowing (which is knowledge) will protect and preserve your life, while you not knowing (lack of knowledge) will destroy your life.
Well, with the above being said, a friend of mine told me he had a dream that just had him completely confused. He said he dreamt how his wife and himself were in what appeared to be a bedroom. He stood on one side of the bed while she stood on the other side of the bed. In the dream he was filled with rage and anger and was cursing his wife with great profanity. In fact he said that he was cursing his wife so much, that she didn't even have a chance to respond to him, even though she so desperately wanted to. He further went on to say that he could recall the room being dark and the dream ended. Upon waking he said he felt very uneasy and did not know what to make of the dream.
Firstly, like I mentioned in a previous teaching, darkness in a dream indicates evil, ignorance, wickedness etc. While a house would represent a person’s life, different parts of that house speak to specific areas of that person’s life. The bedroom points to personal and intimate areas of the dreamer’s life. Now, here is where the dream can become misleading if one does not take into account spiritual laws. My friend said that he was cursing his wife with great profanity to the extent his wife could not get a word in. In reality my friend and his wife do not get along, so some would probably interpret this dream to mean that he may have unforgiveness in his heart towards his wife or his dream was just an avenue to vent his frustration towards his wife.
To the novice or one who is not mentally accompanied with spiritual laws and understands the craftiness and manipulation of the law by Satan and his agent would find this dream very difficult to interpret. The interpretation of the dream is, my friend was in fact cursing himself in the dream. Yes! Satan has manipulated him in the dream to curse his wife. How is this you may ask? Well, according to the spiritual law the law says, “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh” Ephesians 5:31. “And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh” Mark 10:8. “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh” Genesis 2:24.
So as you can see according to spiritual laws a husband and wife are indeed one “the two shall become one”. So the enemy via this spiritual law unknowing to my friend was able to cause my friend in his dream to curse his wife, when the truth is to curse his wife is to really curse himself. The second law that is used in this dream was the law of death and life. This law says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue and they that love it (the death or life that they speak) shall eat the fruit thereof, Proverbs 18:21.
So it is dreams like the above dream that if left unchallenged, meaning if the dream is not interpreted correctly and cancelled, then the dreamer can expect difficulties, losses, delays, missed opportunities etc in their life.
