Dreams: Spiritual Compass of the Nightwatch

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?

“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,” Job 33:12-14

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:

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