Why are dreams difficult/complex?

Recommended Posts

Dreams (not all) are messages from God. Repeatedly, in the bible God through dreams passed messages to and directed His people.

My question is: why are dreams complex, difficult to understand? And who do one meet for clarification?

Is the Lord sending you dreams?

Dreams are images and pictures that your mind shows you while you sleep. While the other parts of your body slows way down when you sleep your mind stays very active. You subconscious is working in your mind when you sleep. Maybe even trying to work out some unresolved issues.

God sends dream generally to two types of people.

Those who do not have the bible or other Christians to get advice from or those who are disobedient and he is trying to save them.

As a general rule, if you have a bible you Do Not Need message via dreams etc

 

As Paul says in Romans 12:1+2 get bibled biased brains so you know what od wants of you.

Dreams are our brains processing and storing information.

Dreams with a message from God, that appear in the Bible, are clear and the person who has them is led to a clear understanding of the message.

The vast majority of dreams are just our brain restoring chemical balance while we sleep.  They can sometimes reflect our mental state.  For example, for a time I was much too concerned with my job and under much stress.  My dreams during this time almost always consisted of images from my day at work.  After I stopped worrying about work so much, my dreams went back to typical randomness.  

One thing to note about spiritual or prophetic dreams is that they were rare occurrences in an individual's life.   Joseph (OT) had 2 such dreams, not hundreds.   Abimelech had one.   Joseph (NT) only had a few and at times when he needed to make an important decision and those were quite explicit and impossible to miss.

Most of our dreams are relatively random and perhaps reflect something going on in our lives.  Dreams of direction from God are relatively rare and those receiving them know there is something very different about those dreams.  I don't think there is much to understand in dreams except that recurring patterns or dreams might give some insight into things that deeply worry us.  The rare dreams from God will also in some manner include God's guidance for understanding them.  Both Joseph (OT) and Daniel when interpreting dreams for rulers said that the interpretations come from God.

Not all dreams are messages from God, only a handful were interpreted in the Bible, by Daniel and Joseph.

I think you are overemphasizing the importance of dreams. The Lord can reveal things to us in dreams, and even speak to us, but in my experience, it doesn't happen very often.

Dreams can be from God, or they could be from demons you have allowed to operate in your mind. For example Incubus and Succubus demons from the filth you put in your mind. If Your life is Focused on the World, and material things in the World, your dreams will be Worldly. If your mind is filled with Godly things then Your dreams can become Godly, and Spiritual. The Big mistake many Christians make is to apply these Godly dreams as prophecy for the world to hear. Most are warnings to yourself, showing you where your actions will lead if you continue in them. For example, I got involved with one of those groups that had a "word from the Lord" on a daily Basis, and the messages seemed to be very legitimate, But the Lord gave me a dream that compared them to a chain of pearls around the neck, similar to  what the Pope wears, and that they were a chain of bondage designed to look like an ornament or jewelry.

Do You have a dream that needs interpreting?
