Interestingly enough, God made it biblically clear that one of the ways to identify a prophet is via a person's frequent dreams and vision. Here is what God said to Moses, Aaron and their sister Miriam, "And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream" Numbers 12:6.
Many of you reading this note right now are frequent dreamers. What is even more surprising is the fact that most of you frequent dreamers are not Christians. The reality is your frequent dreaming or seeing visions are clear cut signs that you possess the gift of prophecy whether you're a Christian or not. God has chosen this arm of prophecy to communicate to you in regards to the past, current and more importantly future events. Clarity and accuracy of what God is communicating to you and through you will be predicated on you feeding your human spirit via hearing and reading the word of God. “I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes. I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts" Psalm 119:99,100.
It is the word of God that opens our spiritual eyes and spiritual understanding of the things of the spirit world. This explains why when folks attempt to interpret their dreams from a natural perspective their dreams fail to make sense. God reveals to us via our dreams the revelations of life's mysteries inclusive of pending future events in our dreams via His Spirit! Thus, if your continued approach to understanding your dreams are not from a spiritual position, then you will consistently fail at the spiritual aspect as to what is yet to be revealed physically that is being displayed in your dream spiritually. Again, let's review scripture to achieve a better understanding of this. Scripture says the following, "Eyes hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God has revealed them (spiritual things) unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God" 1 Corinthians 2:9-10.
Therefore, a person that lacks spiritual understanding or spiritual insight is not only labeled or categorized as a natural man, but spiritual things or things of the spirit world are absolute nonsense to him or her because they are not spiritual in their approach and understanding of such things!. Again, the scriptures confirm this in the following passage of scripture, "But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" 1 Corinthians 2:14.
The reality is, our dreams are difficult to understand not so much because they are spiritual but mainly because there is a disconnect between our spirit and the Spirit of God who is attempting through our dreams to reveal things of the spirit world. Of course, this is due to our spirits being spiritually malnourished as a result of a lack of spiritual food which only comes through God's word!
Sometimes when I interpret a dream for someone they give me this puzzled look on their face. The reason behind, their puzzled look is an obvious expression of them trying to comprehend spiritual things with a natural mindset. Thus their conclusion of my interpretation is foolishness. As a reminder the scripture clearly explained to us that such things could only be discerned by those that are SPIRITUAL! 1 Corinthians 2:15 brings it all together by concluding that the person that is spiritual judges ALL things, yet no man (natural) can judge him. In other words, the one that is spiritual makes his assessment of all matters from their origin which is spiritual thus his judgment discernment will always be correct.
Again, God is speaking to many of you through the consistency of your dreams, but due to your commitment to what is seen or that which only relates to your five senses, you automatically dismiss the unseen (spiritual world). Scriptures warns us of this in the following, "While we look not at the things which are seen (our natural world), but at the things which are not seen (the spiritual world): for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" 2 Corinthians 4:18.
My advice to you to understand your dreams/visions will be to saturate yourself with reading the word of God. Begin feeding your spirit man with sound teaching of the scriptures. I promise you, and I also speak from experience, and that is the interpretation of your dreams will almost be automatic whenever you experience them.
"For God speaks once, yea twice, yet man perceives it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, in slumbering upon the bed; then he opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction" Job 33:14-16.
