Dreams: Spir­i­tual Com­pass of the Night­watch

By Caleb Matthews

Through­out the time­line of human­ity since the first man received breath, the Spirit has con­stantly remained hov­er­ing over the earth. Our nat­ural realm is encom­passed with a supe­rior dimen­sion, a spir­i­tual matrix full of lim­it­less mys­ter­ies wait­ing to invest them­selves into our per­sonal lives. Every­thing we are sur­rounded with in our spheres of influ­ence ALL have their native ori­gins in the invis­i­ble world. Hebrews 11:3 speaks of this fas­ci­nat­ing real­ity of resources con­stantly flow­ing between the invis­i­ble & nat­ural, ulti­mately the invis­i­ble is greater than the nat­ural because it existed first.

Dreams are one of many impor­tant lan­guages with which we receive cor­re­spon­dence from the spir­i­tual world. The Spirit wants to see that this flow con­tin­ues between heaven and earth towards each one of us! Cre­ator wants to release mes­sages through dreams & visions dur­ing the night! Besides the rare case of hav­ing a sleep­ing dis­or­der it is sci­en­tif­i­cally proven that all peo­ple dream whether you remem­ber them or not. An inter­est­ing fact to pon­der on: By the time you reach 60 years of age you will have slept 20 years of your life, 1/3 of our earthly call­ing is invest­ing in dream­ing. Know­ing this, how much more impor­tant is it that we stew­ard &under­stand our dreams on a daily basis?

Job 33:12–14

“For God does speak–now one way, now another–though man may not per­ceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men as they slum­ber in their beds,”

Are dreams a sim­ple case of a child’s imag­i­na­tion, too much pizza or only fan­tasies of the mind? Con­sider these tes­ti­monies: When Har­riet Tub­man, the renown run­away slave dur­ing the 1800’s in Amer­ica, found free­dom, much of her suc­cess in escap­ing was through warn­ing dreams. Through direc­tion from a “Higher Power” she would see in vision­ary form which path to take and which one was a trap where her cap­tors were wait­ing. Dreams are a big deal. Just ask Neb­uchad­nez­zar of Baby­lon and Pharaoh of Egypt who through hav­ing their dreams unlocked by mys­tics like Daniel and Joseph, yielded and opened them­selves to the belief in a “Higher Power” that was beyond their con­trol and com­pre­hen­sion. All three of these his­tor­i­cal exam­ples changed the course of human history.

Our cul­ture uses the term “not every­body are called as famous lead­ers but all have should have lead­er­ship qual­i­ties.” In the same way, ALL PEOPLE DREAM and accord­ing to the grace given are called to a cer­tain level of under­stand­ing, but NOT ALL are DREAM INTERPRETERS. It takes years to develop this gift and is NOT a microwave gim­mick that is an instant fix. It is a lifestyle and a cul­ture we can choose to cul­ti­vate or choose not. Dreams have many lay­ers, dimen­sions and depth to them. I invite you, no mat­ter what level of under­stand­ing you have in this area, to join me in answer­ing the heav­enly call. To con­clude let us look at what the notable Book of Rev­e­la­tion says about this invitation:

Rev­e­la­tion 4:1 “…Come up here and I will show you things which must take place after this.”
