Last week I started with a background on dreams and visions and the importance of them. This week I will look at some of the dreams in the Word of God and their importance to the people involved and to other generations even to us today.
We will also answer some of the questions that people have concerning dreams and visions.
SOME OF THE EARLIEST RECORDINGS OF DREAMS IN THE WORD OF GOD:
Job 33:14-16 Job lived in the time of the book of Genesis around Abraham’s time. Yet God gave Job a huge revelation of dreams and visions.
You see the Bible is not written in strict chronological order. Next time you are in a Christian bookstore pick up a chronological Bible and see where the Book of Job is, it is right after Genesis. In fact the time of Job was during the time of Genesis and Job lived somewhere around the time of Abraham.

Webster’s Dictionary gives the definition of a DREAM as a series of thoughts, images or emotions occurring during sleep. Webster’s definition of SLEEP is the natural suspension of consciousness.
Genesis 20:1-7 This is the first dream mentioned in the Bible. (This was a dream of warning and judgment if Abimelech King of Gerar did not obey God concerning Sarah, Abraham’s wife).
This first dream recorded in the Bible shows that God can give a dream to an ungodly person.
God told Abimelech in very straight talk if you don’t give Sarah back to her husband Abraham and if you touch Sarah, you are a dead man.
Now brothers and sisters in Christ, don’t even tell me those verses need interpretation. Ha ha
Abraham had such a good looking wife in Sarah at the age of 90 years old other men were attracted to her, so Abraham felt he had to lie to Abimelech and say Sarah was his sister. Wow, she must have been a looker at 90 years old.
Abimelech was a king so he could probably have about any woman he wanted but was very interested in Abraham’s wife Sarah.
Warnings can also be used for God to warn godly men or women. God uses dreams to give us warnings. Those warnings can save your life when the Lord sees a tragedy that will come to pass unless something is done. God loves us and wants to protect us.
Gen. 28: 10-22. (Jacob’s ladder) Jacobs dream at Bethel. (This dream from the Lord told Jacob that He was going to bless Jacob and his seed and multiply them and that they were going to be a blessing to the people of the earth. God promised that He would bless the Jewish people to preserve them).
After this dream from the Lord Jacob felt like he was sleeping on holy ground because the Lord had visited him in a dream that night. So Jacob built an altar unto the Lord and then told the Lord that he would tithe a tenth unto the Lord of all that he made. Genesis 28:22
So we see that Jacob was very moved by this dream. He had no doubt that it was a dream from God.
Whenever I have had a dream from the Lord I am very impacted and honored by the dream. It is absolutely real to me and it burns within my spirit as I wake up.
Q. How can I be sure that a dream is from the Lord?
A. You will sense the presence of God in the dream as you wake up.
When you receive a dream from the Lord as you wake up you will still remember the dream very vividly. It will line up with the Word of God 100%. Satan also gives us dreams and his dreams will never line up with the Word of God 100%. Satan deals in partial truths. Look at Eve in the Garden of Eden when satan tempted her. please look ud Genesis 3:4-6. “Satan told Eve that Ye shall not surely die” Genesis 3:4 “…and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:5
Satan cannot tell the truth, he at best deals in partial truths that’s why you need to know your Bible.
Next week we will look at some more dreams from the Bible and also go through some more questions and answers.

FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE NEVER ASKED THE PRECIOUS LORD JESUS IN YOUR LIFE TO BE YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR, THE BIBLE SAYS IF THOU SHALL CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS AND SHALL BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD (EASTER), YOU SHALL BE SAVED. FOR WITH THE HEART MAN BELIEVES UNTO RIGHTEOUNESS (RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD) AND WITH YOUR MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVATION. ROMANS 10:9-10

Nita and I thank you for receiving this ministry of God’s Word today. We know it will enrich your life and give you peace and joy which passeth understanding.
Let me say this about dreams and visions: God can plant seeds of His destiny and purpose for you as He gives you a dream or vision. That’s why it is so important to write down the dreams and visions that God gives you right after you receive them so you retain all of the details correctly. That is very important.
Then from the time you receive the dream or vision it is can be referred to as a pregnancy. That dream or vision starts growing in you like a seed and you will always face difficult times before you come to delivery of that dream or vision.
You have to hold on to that dream or vision, don’t let satan or anyone or anything take it away from you. Don’t forget it, keep it in the forefront of your life. Think about it and meditate on the Word of God that the Lord gave you surrounding that dream or vision.
See yourself becoming and doing just what that dream or vision God gave you.
God did not give you that dream or vision just for the fun of it. It is very important to God and you and He fully intends to deliver on it.
So hold your ground. Don’t give up.
