Scripture References: Matthew 13v25; Genesis 37v5-10;

Ecclesiastes 5v3

Please take some few minutes to read these scriptures in order to understand the teaching that follows after them.

Matthew 13v25: “but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way”.

Genesis 37v5-10: “Now Joseph had a dream, and he told it to his brothers; and they hated him even more. 6 So he said to them, “Please hear this dream which I have dreamed: 7 There we were, binding sheaves in the field. Then behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright; and indeed your sheaves stood all around and bowed down to my sheaf.”

8 And his brothers said to him, “Shall you indeed reign over us? Or shall you indeed have dominion over us?” So they hated him even more for his dreams and for his words.

9 Then he dreamed still another dream and told it to his brothers, and said, “Look, I have dreamed another dream. And this time, the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me.”

10 So he told it to his father and his brothers; and his father rebuked him and said to him, “What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall your mother and I and your brothers indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?”

Ecclesiastes 5v3: “For a dream comes through much activity,
and a fool’s voice is known by his many words”.

Definition:

Dreams are a spiritual monitor. The dream will tell you about what is happening and about what will happen in your life in the future.
 

Classes of dreams:
1.) Dreams from God
2.) Dreams from yourself
3.) Dreams from the Devil

1.) Dreams from God
Genesis 37v5-10, Matthew 2v13
a.) Joseph is one of the person who received a dream and his dreams took him as far as taking him out of the pit, prison to the palace and there he became greater. Your dream can take you to your destiny.

b.) Joseph the father of Jesus: He dreamt about the direction to flee with Jesus and the Mother away from Herod as he was planning to kill Jesus.


=> God sends a dream for:
1.) Warning
2.) Direction
3.) Correction
4.) And for what will come in the future

Warning drams
in this dream you will get an instruction like:
=> don’t go there
=> don’t eat from there
=> don’t play with that one

A warning dream is like a prophetic dream because its only God who knows the HEART of man, you may think that a person is a good person, good friend but God in contrary He sees that the heart of the very same person is very bad. God knows who can destroy your marriage, relationship, business, family, and also your spiritual life. That is why you need to obey what God say to you in the dream even though you are not HAPPY.

- What you saw during the day can come again in your sleep as a dream.
- What you heard during the day can come in the dream
- What you spoke during the day can also come as a dream in your sleep.
 NB: There is a lot of confusion here, people may think the dream is from God but not.

3.) Dreams from the Devil
a) Manipulation dream
=> in your dreams you may see your friend as your enemy and your enemy as your friend, because you can’t achieve your destiny alone, now the devil knows who can support your vision, business, ministry, marriage. The devil can bring the face of this person as your enemy in your dream so that you can disconnect and run away from him.
b) Vagabond Dream
=> In your dreams you see yourself in London, USA, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Khayelitsha, Parklands....etc In other words you see yourself in your dreams being in many places and when you wake up you will be left confused on where exactly are you supposed to be. In this case you don’t know which place belongs to you and it brings a big confusion because you see yourself in many places or countries. The devil doesn’t want you to know your land, country or place of success because he doesn’t want you to be established.

c.) Vanity dream
=> this is a nonsense dream you don’t need to take this serious.
=> It’s a dream with no meaning, therefore don't worry about this one

d.) Warfare dream (There is no interpretation for this on, it's clear)
i.) In these dreams you will see people chasing you in the dream
ii.) You will see people wanting to kill you in the dream
iii.) You will see yourself fighting in the dream
IV.) You will somebody want to shoot you in the dream
v.) Also you will see people want to pull you down in your dreams
NB: And when you wake up you feel tired and your heart beating fast!
