"A Question About
Christian Dreams"

A Visitor Asks:

"Hi, I have been struggling with this since I was a child. When I was six years old, I asked Jesus to take away my sins, give me Salvation, and be my Lord and Savior.

The next year, I had a dream that Jesus was walking around my classroom at school, whispering in each student's ear whether they would go to heaven or hell. When He got to me, He said I was going to hell.

I had put my faith in Him for Salvation. Why would He have let me dream something like that? 

If God sometimes speaks through dreams, and I don't know if that dream was from Him or not. But if the Bible tells me to believe in Him for Salvation, and that's what I did, wasn't my dream contrary to the Bible? I've worried about this ever since then."

You Are Safe

Hello,

You have been waiting for an answer to your dream for a long time.

For any dream to be considered a Christian dream, it must first agree with God's Word, and I do not believe your dream is in agreement with God's Word. Jesus would not make the promise of Salvation and then send you a dream to tell you that yours did not work.

When you, in obedience and complete faith, asked Jesus to take away your sins and become your Savior, He did!  

Jesus promised never to leave or forsake you throughout Eternity, and that cannot be changed by a dream or anything else (Heb 13:5). 

You are safe; He is your Savior and Companion forever. Nevertheless, Satan will lie and attempt in any way he can to convince you that you are not saved.

The Bible Always Rules

The Bible always rules over anything else (our doubts, others' opinions, dreams, or whatever Satan may try to convince us is wrong). The Bible always rules.

The following is from one of our Trusting in Jesus Dream Pages:

"Dreamers cannot be held responsible for the content of their dreams except to honestly attempt to describe the events as remembered, and they should not be questioned or condemned by others for their dreams.

Our dreams invariably include confusing situations, people, places, and specific information. For instance, even knowledgeable Bible students find it challenging to relay what seem to be specific dates of the Rapture received in their dreams, but (only God knows that date).

However, all of our dreams, including dates, can be symbolic. For instance: In Pharaoh's dream, the seven fat and seven skinny cows and corn meant seven years of plenty and seven years of famine (Gen 41).

Not Every Dream is from God

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 hot-dog."

Dreams can be caused by life situations, events that occur during a day, and many believe Satan can influence our dreams.

Dreams and Visions always seem to come when we least expect them. I have had several life-changing dreams and visions, and they all caught me by surprise. Although some occurred many years ago, they are as clear and memorable today as then."

You asked Jesus into your heart, and you were born again, and that can never be changed!

Jesus loves you very much, and you are safe with Him! 

Thank you for your question, and I hope you can visit often.

Samuel
