Dream is something that takes place at night, or when we take a nap. I have had dreams while taking a short nap. At that time those dreams where short and few. I don't remember what the dreams where about, but I have had them.
Those dreams have been silly dreams though and then they have been really scarier. I have had dreams of places I went as a child, places I have never went, places I don't even what to go, and I have had dreams that I don't want to share. When I dream like that I ask God to help me forget those dreams. Because those dreams are not godly dreams.
There are all kinds of dreams out there. Dreams that don't mean anything to dreams that many every thing. Dreams of death, dreams of marriage, dreams of being rich to dreams of being poor. There are dreams of sex, and drugs, to dreams of church and God.
As a young person I did not want to have a dream. Because I had those type of dreams that were scray and dumb. I did not like those type of dreams. When I would go to bed I would pray and ask God not to let me have those bad dreams. And I did not have those bad dreams. But if I did not pray I would have all kinds of dreams. I aslo had to watch what I watched on T.V. becasue I would dream about the movie or T.V. show that I just got done watching.
That is why I really felt strongly about putting this study on FaithWriters. I felt like I need to share with others about what the Bible said about Dreams, and what God has done for me about the dreams I had.
I looked up the word Dream in Websterís Dictionary of Modern English and this is what it says about the word dream.
ďDream is a vision during sleep, think of as possible, see, imagine in dreams, and very pleasant.Ē
Dreams can be just that a dream. Sometimes dreams can be other things. I feel that when I watch all kinds of grabage on T.V. and not spending time with God. The devil has the chance to use that stuff that was seen on T.V. to get me all worked up and lose sleep. When I go to bed that is the time that my body needs to rest up for the next day. It is not a time for the devil to play games with my dreams. I have the right to say, hey,"I will not dream any ungodly dream. I will dream only what God wants me to dream, and if I can not do that, than I will not dream." My pastor had talked about praying over his mind. That is where dreams come from. So, I thought okay, if he can do that than so can I. And I have been, and it has been helping too. If I don't spend time in the word or with God I still pray that prayer and ask God to forgive me for not spending time with him. He will forgive us. I am so glad that I serve an awsome God, and that he is so mercyful.

Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, reject authority, and speak evil of dignitaries.
Here, we are seeing God saying that there are poeple that will reject authority. They do not like people telling them what to do. They think they are right even when they are worng. They talk evil things about others they donít care about any one but them selves. They do things that are not of God.
2nd Peter 2:15
Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness.
I was once one of this people that walked in unrightousness. But I turned around and started following Jesus again.
Greek word [kataleipo] to forsake; abandon; give up; and to leave. Which translates forsake.
I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed. How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? Yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart; Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their farthers have forgotten that hath a dream, The prophet that have a dream let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? Saith the Lord.
Now a dream may be a dream and should be told as such. And Godís word is to be spoken with absolute truth. I feel like if you have a dream or if someone has a dream and they feel like it is from God. Than write it down, pray about that dream and ask God is this really from you becasue sometimes what we think is from God may not be.
Now a thing was secretly brought to me, and mine ear received a little thereof. In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men, Fear came upon me, and trembling, which made all my bones to shake. Then a spirit passed before my face; the hair of my flesh stood up: It stood still, but I could not discern the form thereof: an image was before mine eyes, there was silence, and I heard a voice, saying, shall mortal man be more just than God? Shall a man be more pure than his makerĒ
The last part of this verse will give you something to think about. I will be honset I have never paid attention to what it said until now. It dose make you think.
The Bible is full of verse about Dreams and other things. Here are more scriptures on dreams
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; to him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
When we turn our ears to God we will hear what he wants us to do. When we stop putting garbage in our home, car and work then things will change. Until we get the garbage of the world out of our lifeís and home than it is heard to hear God. God wants us to hear very word he says with out having to repeat it a hundred times. I am not a hundred percent on this but I believe that when we have God dreams is because wants us to see what he is telling us too. Because I think we are just filled with so much things during the day that we donít hear him. Which we should but sometimes we donít. So, I think that is why sometimes he will come to us in a dream, or a vision.
1st Samuel 16:23
And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.
It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angles do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
I feel that even children have dreams that are not from God. More than adults do. This is just my opinion. I can not back it up with scripture. It is just my opinion.
I can say this though as I parent that I noticed when my kids watch certain cartoons they donít sleep as good as when they donít watch T.V. at all. So, I have been watching what they watch at night. And there has been times they donít watch nothing. But things that we put in our minds can come in our dreams. I have had so many bad experience with that. I even have to watch what I watch at night or hear during the day. Because I will dream it that night.
One thing that I have found that works for me is when I say my prayers at night I say God, I will only have dreams from you, I will not have any dreams from the devil. I have pled the blood of Jesus Christ over my mind so the devil and his evil works can not enter in. I see a change in my dreams when I do that. I also see a change when I donít pray over my mind
