Although prominent throughout the Old and New Testaments dreams and visions are hardly mentioned in most churches today, and are rarely a topic of conversation.
We know the Apostle Paul received visions so powerful that a "Thorn in the Flesh" was given him so that he would not be too conceited (2 Cor 12:7), and that the Apostle John basically wrote the entire book of Revelation by visions from God.
But are They Relevant Today?
We are definitely living in the "last days," and Peter, Quoting prophecy from Joel 2:28, said: "And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions."(Acts 2:17)
So, according to Scripture, God continues to communicate with His people in the same manner and we should be expecting it.
Of course, not every dream is from God. As I once heard an old preacher say with a mixture of humor and truth, "sometimes it is the result of too much chili on the hotdog."
They always seem to come when we least expect them. I have had several very powerful life changing visions, and they all caught me by surprise. Although some occurred many years ago they are as clear and memorable today as then.
Visions can contain prophesies, guidance, comfort, and instructions for ourselves and others. The interpretation can bring an immediate revelation or miracle.

I always dream about fish, lots of fish. In my previous dream some fish in a pond jump infront of me. Other dream as I walk beside the pond I can see clearly the color of swimming fish. My latest dream I swam in pond to catch the fish with color red and white. One thing amazing is that I can breath even my body is submerged.
Response to Dennis:
This seems to be a very special dream and although I do not claim to have the total interpretation, I am familiar with the meaning or outcome of similar dreams.
As you probably know, the fish is a Christian symbol. To dream of a fish is often viewed as a type of calling from God. As in, when Jesus called some of the disciples and told them, "I will make you fishers of men."
Perry Stone, in his book, "How to Interpret Dreams and Visions" says, "In a dream fishing is usually an indication of ministry and reaching souls. If the lake is small, it is a smaller ministry; if large, a large church or ministry is indicated."
My suggestion is for you to pray and to listen for guidance from the Holy Spirit. I believe He will reveal the meaning of this dream for you.
I pray the Lord will show you the meaning to you dream.

I often dream about my deceased family members. We are always continuing our lives in a normal way. Sometimes in my dream I am aware they are sick and will soon leave me but I am not too sad. I always feel good when I awake and know that I was with them again.

I had this dream about 1 year ago and it has always bothered me. My ex-boyfriends deceased mother talked to me asking if I would come with her, and I ask if he was coming and she says yes.
That was it I woke up wondering if she was trying to tell me something.
My ex killed himself a few days ago and I have this overwhelming amount of guilt and sadness that if I talked to him before this he would still be here today.

In the first one people were desperately looking for food, and there was none. Society broke down to total lawlessness. Never would I have dreamed that this would happen in America. When I woke up in the morning the memory stayed with me all day and it bothered me tremendously.
That night I prayed and asked God what caused the event. That night I dreamed of standing in a beautiful field looking out to the city. I looked down and my daughter was standing next to me. just then I heard a loud boom! I looked up and the city was gone and in its place was the mushroom cloud of an atomic explosion. I said, oh no! then I just reached down and held my daughters hand, and I woke up.

For years, I've had recurring dreams of disasters coming to the U.S. as part of God's Judgment on this country for it's sins. In them I start receiving thoughts/voices telling me to perform certain preparations and to "make a place of refuge" for those in need. I've prayed for clear interpretation, but thus far have not received it.

In my dream, I was in my bathroom with my brother talking when suddenly, he and I looked out the window (the window is about 1 foot tall and 3 feet wide) and saw these red and yellow lights. Some of the lights were blinking. We looked at this for a total of 2 to 3 seconds before we shot up. The moment we were shot up I knew that it was the rapture. Then I woke up.

I was getting out of my bed to go to the bathroom. When I stepped into the hallway there was a bird, a normal looking brownish colored bird on the floor, and I thought, what is a bird doing in the house? At that second the bird flew up at me at my face, and I woke up. I think it was a vision.

In my experience I seldom think about them being from God, because the ones I have had (that were from Him) had different implications that, at the time, were not obvious (to me).I believe most are from random events of the day mixed with issues that are going on in our lives.
I'm glad that God can speak/communicate through dreams because it may be the only way I can't mess it up.
Sometimes I dream about things that I thought about or read before I went to sleep. At times they are so real that I am confused when I wake up as to whether they actually occurred in my awake state.
You know as kids we had the wildest imaginations, then somehow when we grew up we lost a lot of that. I believe it is sort of an expression of our long forgotten imaginations, fantasies (not necessarily sexual!) which we want to carry out in real life, other times, fantasies we absolutely don't want to occur.
Does that make any sense? The brain is definitely an amazing thing.

To all who are bless by God in dreams and vision:
Seek the lord pray for understanding of your dreams. The word of god states that He would pour out his spirit on all flesh in the last days. SEEK THE FATHER, press for Him, cry out to Him, and He will bring His Revelation and understanding to His people. Clean Water means holy spirit.
I was standing on the pulpit and reading the Bible to the congregation. Verses and chapters were called out to me and I would tell them exactly what was there. It was as though I had memorized the entire Bible
Then, in the dream, I was given a name for my ministry, and every other thing the ministry should contain, including, " hospitals, schools, a place for the homeless, motherless, alms and foods was given out to those that were in need, and they all confessed Christ as their lord and Saviour.
The name I saw was, "Harvest of souls Ministry." Then I woke up in the middle of the night, and immediately wrote it down.
Had a dream that someone stole my pickup truck!

My wife, my son and I were looking at the sky and it was dark and it funneled down to the earth around me was a road to my right, a highway straight ahead, and a highway to my left.
We started walking toward the funneled sky in amazement, we wanted to know what was going on. All the sudden something like a grenade went off on the road to my right, then the highways started falling apart. Icould feel everything, the vibrations, all of it.
We ran back and as I entered this gate two guys were walking towards me. One guy leaned up against the gate saying something that didn't make sense. The other guy was still walking towards me. His eyes were dark and evil reddish, and he attacked me.
We tussled around until I was on top of him. As I looked into his eyes I heard the other man say, "here it comes." I opened my mouth and the guy with the dark eyes disintegrated.
Then it was just me and the guy leaning on the fence. That's when it ended ended.
