Hello, I had a dream that I was food shopping on a street where there were food vendors, like Arabians and such.
I purchased 2 types of breaded delicatessen, but when I tasted one it made me vomit. I awoken from the dream by spitting out in my bed!
This dream may be literal or symbolic, depending upon the location and details.
For example, do you recognize or shop in the location you saw in your dream? Are you taking a trip soon or did you take a trip? Was it day or night? Was the mood of the vendors pleasant, angry or deceptive? Did you feel peaceful, joyful or indifferent?
The answers to these questions may determine if God is giving you symbolism to relay a deeper informational message from Him or if he is warning you about something in a literal way.
All details are important when interpreting a dream message from God so keeping a good dream journal is a good way to inspect all the details given to you with each scene.
The symbolism perspective & scriptures that come to mind on this dream are from the result of you waking up spitting out on your bed. The literal would be something you may need to identify further by writing out the additional details unmentioned here from your dream before determining.
A bread delicatessen "in certain Arabian cultures" is a luxury, so you eating and partaking of something foreign isn't the issue. The issue may be that God wants you to look deeper at what you allow into your "spiritual mind," as well as your physical body.
Appetites are human of course but when God is nudging us about something he sometimes uses our natural human appetite to reveal something deeper about a thing.
He may want you to avoid something for a reason that he definitely will reveal to you as you yield and seek His way out by praying & studying His Word. He loves for us to seek Him out because He promises we WILL find Him.
it's also really cool when He reveals to us specifics about things He is talking to us about because it draws us closer to Him in a real relationship versus a religious way.
Next is a brief study on Bread delicacies origins. This information provides a deeper understanding into the roots of the vendor/ tent cooking you mentioned in your dream.
It may also reveal the spitting from eating the bread, and the details of how you physically woke up spitting in your dream, as well.
NOTE: "The following is to help in your dream interpretation only. God does not want His people partaking of any ritualistic or spiritualistic forms of worship in any way. He alone is to be glorified."
The study of bread consumption is found in an Egyptian Cultic practice used to revive the dead by use of "Spitting."
Perhaps the following will also help you to see the symbolism of other small yet critical details in your dream.
"The ancient Egyptians also believed in a ritual which would bring sensory life back to the deceased's form, enabling it to see, smell, breathe, hear, and eat, and thus partake of the offering foods and drinks brought to the tomb each day." The ritual was called The "Opening of the Mouth"
Priests would recite hymns such as this:
"Awake!..May you be alert as a living one, rejuvenated every day, healthy in millions of occasions of god sleep, while the gods protect you, protection being around you every day."
It was believed that once the deceased was rejuvenated he could interact and watch over the family members, and affect their lives.
Valencia, the purpose of this dream may be that God is educating you on the spiritual gifting's he has placed in you, and that he most definitely wants to use as you yield to Jesus to stop the enemy's camp.
You must first get a "full Biblical" understanding of spiritual warfare, the purpose of spiritual gifts, Gods will regarding them, and the importance of not being lured by satan to partake of His kingdom in anyway.
Satan is always subtle & comes rarely to Gods people with pitchfork and tail but quite the contrary. It's critical for us as Gods anointed to know & discern the adversary's tactics and to know who we are in Jesus as His appointed saints in this hour.
Next, It's amazing what you will learn through Jesus by allowing Him to lead you through your dreams like a detective in a crime scene.
He will truly reveal things that will strengthen your walk in ways the enemy hates for you to know, so pray up daily & be willing to allow God to guide you in closing doors you may have opened to the enemy unawares, or just by lack of knowledge.
God has made you uniquely brave and fearless in the sight of evil. Your journey is an awesome one appointed by God.
I am also standing in faith with you in prayer as you grow to full potential in Jesus name.
