The dream channel is a medium created by God, designed to pass information to us His children.
Every beneficial invention that mankind has ever come-up with, is mostly received through the dream channel. But just like every good thing God created, satan has perfected the art of polluting human destinies by planting evil seeds in peoples lives through the medium of dreams. Mathew 13 v 25 says “but while man slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way”.
The devil sows evil seeds into people’s lives through dreams in order to limit their success and breakthrough in life. Whether you believe it or not, your dreams will affect your progress for good or bad.
Beloved, there is more to dreams than our sentiments, feelings, sensual assessment and judgment can fathom. I pray God will open your eyes of understanding as we journey along on the subject in Jesus name.
Dreams are spiritual media through which we receive information about happenings in the spirit realm. Through a dream, the glorious destiny of Jesus was preserved when God appeared to Joseph in a dream. Mathew 2 v 13. God assured Joseph of Mary’s purity – Mathew 1 v 20, and told him to return to Nazareth – Mathew 2 v 19 – 23, all through Dreams. The wise men were warned of Herod’s plot against the Baby Jesus through a dream, Mathew 2 v 12.
God revealed Joseph’s destiny and future to him through dreams, Genesis 37 v 2 – 11. Through a dream, Solomon had a divine encounter that announced him to his world. 1 King 3 v 5 – 15. The devil sows evil seeds into people’s lives through dreams right from infancy in order to limit their success and breakthroughs in life.
These evil dreams grow with them through the years making them experience untold hardship and setbacks physically, maritally, financially etc.
The devil has successfully done this by taking advantage of people’s sheer ignorance of the victory Jesus won for them at Calvary.
In Numbers 12 v 6, it is established that God can speak to you in a dream. God means what He says, and says what He means.
In Genesis 28 v 10 – 16, Jacob’s future blue prints were read out to him by God in a dream. The story of Jacob shows that God can make a meaning out of a life in a mess, God can come to you in your dream and give you solutions.
In Genesis 37 v 4 – 11, Joseph dreamt a dream, this dream guarded Joseph’s journey in life, when he was in the pit, he knew that, that position was contrary to what he saw, the Almighty communicates to us through dreams.
