TEXT: ACTS 2:17-21
MATHEW 13: 24-30
Dreaming is a natural way in which the spirit world breaks out into our lives. Dreams can be described as the dark speech of the spirit. They can be keys to unlocking the door to the inner world. Dreams are means of revelation. Modern man has chosen to ignore and totally reject dreams. Many modern people fear that interest in them is lack of civilization. The fact is that if we would listen, dreams can help us find increased spiritual victory and help.
Let us Learn:-
I. DREAMS ARE SOURCES OF REVELATION. (Acts 2:17-21)
- Once we understand that dreams can be key to unlocking the door to the spirit world, we can take vital steps.
- First, we can specifically pray, inviting God to inform us through our dreams and visions.
- Secondly, we can declare war against evil dreams and visions that are used against us.
- Thirdly, we should learn how to interpret dreams and visions.
- Fourthly, the best way to discover the meaning of dreams and visions is to ask the Holy Spirit.
- God promised to speak to His people by dreams ,visions and prophesy in the last days (Acts 2:17)
- Therefore, our dreams, visions and prophesies need to be studied and analyzed with a view to decoding their message.
- Unfortunately, there is a big problem in our lives because of satanic dreams, visions and prophesies.
- There is no other passage to learn for proper understanding of victory over satanic dreams than Mathew 13:25, “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed..”
II. THERE ARE DANGERS IN DREAMS, VISIONS AND PROPHECIES (Matt. 13:25)
- We face three types of danger,
- A lot of people are so deep in spiritual sleep that they never remember what they dreamt about.
- When you dream and forget everything, you stand a danger of missing the message and ministration from God, if God was the one speaking through the dream, vision or prophesy
- If the enemy is carrying out an evil activity and you forget the dream, then you face the danger of remaining under bondage.
- If you usually forget dreams on a regular basis, you have a very serious spiritual problem.
III. THE SOURCES OF DREAMS
- Every normal person sleeps about 8 hours each day.
- One third of our lives is spent sleeping !!
- So a lot of time is spend dreaming and visioning.
- Dreams, visions, prophesies can come from ;
- When a dream, vision, prophesy is from God, the dreamer is left normal, calm, quiet, reasonable, clear minded and sober.
- A dream from God will give Assurance, encouragement, comfort, direction, instruction, guidance, exhortation, correction, revelation of the future revelation of His plans and purpose to you.
- A dream from Satan will be mysterious, absurd, sometimes empty, sometimes foolish, confusing, dazed, unreasonable, most time it will make nonsense.
