review
key points
you can have dreams from God every night
Dreams address specific issues, bible address general issues of life “the bible speaks to our life, the prophets speaks to our moment”
Dreams that require attention are more often than not recurrent: “they come over and over again” Joseph’s dreams
laying the foundation for teaching on evil dreams:
Evil dreams are vehicles of satanic access to a person’s life
At least there are these three reasons why the devil gives evil dream
to create fear, because he knows that fear is the enemy of faith.
to attack the specific areas of your life that are a treat to his kingdom.
to disconnect you from dreaming.

Simple Review:

What is dream?
Q: What is dream?
God speaking to you
how does God Choose symbols in your dream?
Based on his message
based on what the symbol mean to you
how do you know if a dream is for you or for someone else?
ask the question: “what am i doing in the dream, am i acting or observing”
what is the key element to discern a divine dream?
SIMPLICITY: what makes a dream simple?
God can speak plainly in it himself or through his angels
there is always a central message communicated
The symbols in it will not communicate confusion but clarity
After such dream there will always be divine prompting

Solving the mysteries of dreams part 3

Let us go back to our anchor text:
john 10
Numbers 12:6 ESV
6 And he said, “Hear my words: If there is a prophet among you, I the Lord make myself known to him in a vision; I speak with him in a dream.
Job 33:14–18 The Living Bible
14 “For God speaks again and again, 15 in dreams, in visions of the night when deep sleep falls on men as they lie on their beds. 16 He opens their ears in times like that and gives them wisdom and instruction, 17 causing them to change their minds, and keeping them from pride, and warning them of the penalties of sin, and keeping them from falling into some trap.
John 10:27 ESV
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
Today, By the grace of God, I will address other key areas of Dream:
Last weekend, I said “some people are teaching that you can have dream every night and it could be from God, but i said affirmatively that it is impossible” I want to correct that statement, because in the new testament church it is possible. this is possible because:
under the new covenant we have become reconciled to God, the benefit of this is an unrestricted access to God.
2 Corinthians 5:17–18 ESV
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;
2 Corinthians 5:17–18 ESV
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;
2cor 5:1
Matthew 27:47–51 ESV
47 And some of the bystanders, hearing it, said, “This man is calling Elijah.” 48 And one of them at once ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine, and put it on a reed and gave it to him to drink. 49 But the others said, “Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him.” 50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit. 51 And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split.
2 cor 5:17-
Matthew 27:51–53 ESV
51 And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split. 52 The tombs also were opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised, 53 and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
The veil has been removed, which gave way for multiplied visions
mat 27:47-
Matthew 27:49–51 ESV
49 But the others said, “Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him.” 50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit. 51 And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split.
mat 27:49-5
Matthew 27:50–51 ESV
50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit. 51 And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split.
mat 27:
Hosea 12:10 KJV 1900
10 I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, And used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.
Hosea 12:10
Redemption deplete the distance between heaven and earth: heaven has come into my heart
Redemption deplete the distance between heaven and earth: heaven has come into my heart
By virtue of redemption we have received the Spirit of his son - The Holy Spirit is an enhancer.
Through redemption we are seated together with Christ at the right hand of the father in the heavenly places.
Ephesians 2:6 NLT
6 For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.
So our Location is in the new eden where God constantly have fellowship with us.

2. God gives dreams to address specific issues of life, all instructions regarding general issues of life relative to christian living in righteousness had already been documented in the written word.

Genesis 20:3 ESV
3 But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night and said to him, “Behold, you are a dead man because of the woman whom you have taken, for she is a man’s wife.”
Judges 7:13–14 ESV
13 When Gideon came, behold, a man was telling a dream to his comrade. And he said, “Behold, I dreamed a dream, and behold, a cake of barley bread tumbled into the camp of Midian and came to the tent and struck it so that it fell and turned it upside down, so that the tent lay flat.” 14 And his comrade answered, “This is no other than the sword of Gideon the son of Joash, a man of Israel; God has given into his hand Midian and all the camp.”
specific issues were being addressed.

The mysteries of Dreams? what are they?

The mysteries of dreams are wrapped up in this truth that, divine dreams are divine vehicles that carries to us the abundance provisions of God’s knowledge, they are spiritual and at the same time they are real - they are like a bridge that links two unlikely dimensions in an unexpected way, that makes it to tangle - how can you be asleep and at the same time be awake? how could your soul be unfruitful and yet there is a reality of reasoning in your spiritual consciousness?
Another mystery, if divine dreams are like spiritual vehicles loaded with goods from a different dimension, you will suppose it will always carry good stuffs? But No! the spiritual dimension is bipolar in diversity - it is a contention between the force of evil and of good, though it is not visible to us, in that dimension, both forces are visible. Hindrances can happen, the channel of evil may clog the free flow of the channel of the spirit of truth in freely getting to you. so, sometimes the channel did not bring the right package.
For one that is not fully on the Lord’s side, it is pitiful, because the forces of evil is what have the platform in their dream - the good dream is a rare occurence.
