BIBLICAL DREAMERS

In a previous post, I quoted Job 33: 14-16 to illustrate that God speaks to people in dreams.

If you read the Bible from cover to cover (Old and New Testaments), you will find that the terms “dream” and “vision” occur repeatedly. Dreams from God are not limited to certain ethic groups or religions. Jews, Gentiles, followers of Yeshua (Jesus), pagans, and apparently anyone can have a dream from God..

Here are some examples recorded in the Bible of people who had God-given dreams:   Abraham (Gen. 15: 12);  Abimelech (Gen. 20: 3), Jacob (Gen. 28: 12-16); Joseph (37: 5-11); the Pharaoh‘s chief cup-bearer (Genesis 40: 9-13); the Pharaoh’s chief baker (Gen. 40: 16-19); and Pharaoh (Gen.41: 1-7).

This is just a sample of dreams recorded in the Bible, and notice that thus far I’ve only mentioned Genesis!  I plan to create a page or more on Biblical dreams.  This is just the beginning.  God has always spoken to men and women (such as Pontius Pilot‘s wife) in dreams  In fact, God-given dreams appear to be increasing based on the following prophecy related to end-times.:

“It will come about after this that I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; and your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.  Even on the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.” (Joel 2: 28–29).
