When we are dreaming of something or when we have a vision during the day, we usually try to discover its meaning. When we are looking for our dream or vision interpretation, we have to take into account our emotions and thoughts in a real life.
Also, it is important to remember as much details as you can from your dream.
You have probably heard of Biblical interpretations of our dreams. There is no doubt that many symbols from our dreams have special symbolism in the Bible.
In this article you will have the opportunity to see what the Bible really says when it comes to our dreams and visions.
Also, you will see the Biblical interpretations of the most common symbols in our dreams and visions.
What Is the Difference Between Dreams and Visions?
First of all we have to say the difference between a dream and a vision. We all know that a dream happens while we are sleeping. On the other side, a vision happens when we are awake. According to the Bible, a dream represents a vision that happens over the night.
Actually, we are dreaming at the moment when a deep sleep comes upon us. But, it is believed that we cannot remember all the things that we are dreaming about during the night. Many scientists say that we can remember only those dreams that we had right before awakening.
In both dreams and visions we will receive the message from the Divine. The only difference is that you may receive the message while you are asleep or while you are awake. But, in most cases a message will be the same and it will have the same symbolism.
When it comes to our dreams and visions, it is important to say that they are the warnings in most of the cases. The God is trying to warn you something through your dream and vision, but more about their Biblical interpretations you will have the opportunity to see below in this article.
What Does the Bible Say About Our Dreams And Visions?
There is no doubt that during a dream we can have a feeling that it is real. Because of that it can happen that we wake up angry or maybe afraid because of something that we have dreamed about.
If you had a bad dream, you must have woken up very scared. But you should not be worried because the God may be only warning you about a danger that is threatening to you and you are not able to see it.
Sometimes when you have unusual dream, you may wake up confused as well. Some people have a sensation that something from their dreams really happened.
On the other hand, we have visions which can be also real and they can appear in our mind. The Bible has the explanation for that. The God is trying to communicate with us through our dreams and visions, so we should pay more attention to them.
If you believe in God, then you should never ignore your dreams and visions. The Bible says that the God is giving us important instructions and messages while we are dreaming or while we are having visions. There is no doubt that we can learn a lot from the instructions that we receive through our dreams and visions.
Dreams and visions may be also a warning for us to change some things in our lives. If we are doing something wrong or if we are going through the wrong path in our lives, it is possible that the God will give us important instructions in our dreams or visions that we have during the day. When the God is talking to you through your dreams and visions, he wants you to pay more attention to the message that he is sending to you.
Sometimes the God wants you to change something in your life or maybe to pray. Very often the only thing that the God wants to provoke in you is praying, which will be necessary to make your life better.
It is also important to say that our dreams are connected with our subconscious mind, so they allow us to see the real truth of a thing. Sometimes our dreams reveal our deepest emotions and let us realize things that we are not able to realize in a waking life.
According to the Bible, the God will not communicate with us during the day when we are too busy with other things. That’s why the God usually chooses the night when we are sleeping, because it is an ideal time to relax our heart and mind. While we are dreaming, we are able to hear what the God wants to tell us. It is very important to understand the message from the Divine. It will make our life on this planet easier and more interesting.
Also, it will help us gain wisdom and apply it in our real lives. Our dreams and visions can reveal us the plans from the God as well. We will be able to understand much better our own life and everything that is happening around us. But, it is not always easy to understand the message from the God.
Also, it is written in the Bible that we should write our dreams and visions on a paper and wait for them to happen in reality. It is believed that they are not a coincidence and not pure images in our minds, but they are much more than that. They are messages from the Divine and what you have seen in your dream or in a vision, it will certainly happen to you, sooner or later. That’s why most people are especially afraid of bad dreams, because the Bible says that they will come true.
However, not all dreams must be realized in a waking life. If you are praying after your dreams, then you should not worry, because all your good dreams will come true and all your bad dreams will go away from you. As you can see, most important is to pray and to listen to the God that appears in your dream.
