Dreams and Visions
Does God talk to us through dreams?
According to Joel 2 and Acts 2, “In the last days, young men will have
visions and old men will dream dreams.” We see throughout the Bible examples
where God uses dreams. He spoke to Joseph and Peter through dreams. So He
absolutely does speak to us through dreams.
But not every dream is necessarily from God; we have to make sure that the dream
is biblical. And we do that by comparing it to what the Bible teaches. In other
words, if you had a dream that you were to marry somebody else’s husband, that
dream wasn’t from God. It’s contrary to the Bible. It would require somebody to
get a divorce, to fail in their marriage in order for that dream to be fulfilled
in your life. In principle, the answer to your question is absolutely, God
speaks to us through dreams. But practically speaking, you’ve got to test a
dream and measure it with what the Bible teaches to make sure that it lines up
with the Bible and scriptural principles.
