The success of any war will be solely predicated on the intelligence gathered concerning the
opponents of that war for future use.
For example, prior to the nation of Israel conquering Jericho, spies were sent into Jericho to gather information or intelligence. The purpose of this as mentioned earlier was to garner information concerning Jericho for future use against them, Joshua 2:1. Such was the case also when Moses sent the 12 spies to search out the Promise land, Numbers 13:17.
In the spirit realm or should we say during the course of spiritual warfare one of the tools for peering into the spirit realm that is made available to us as spirits living in a physical body is our dreams! Our dreams are our spiritual monitors into the spirit realm. It is this realm that we observe spiritually through our dreams pending events that if not challenged will manifest into our natural realm.So even though our physical bodies maybe sleeping our spirit is very much awake interacting in the unseen world otherwise known as the spirit world. Let me make this crystal clear, it is the spirit world where all future events for earth is manufactured.
Let's Observe an example of this: "And being warned of God in a "DREAM" that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way. And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a "DREAM" , saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him" Matthew 2:12-13.
In the above scripture text, while the physical bodies of the wise men and Joseph lay asleep, their spirits which were engaged in the spirit world was being warned in a dream concerning specific instructions, that would cause them to change their course of action in the natural. God warned the wise men in their dream while an angel warned Joseph in his dream. This my friend is what is known as spiritual intelligence, revealing things that you'd never know under normal circumstances!
Therefore, those that dismiss this tool of spiritual warfare will automatically fulfill biblical prophecy that says, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge" Hosea 4:6.
