What Happens When We Sleep and Do Dreams Really Matter

Post by Tom Willis on Wed Oct 07, 2009 4:33 pm

I Had a question and had some thoughts, but would very much appreciate everyones input! The question being... "What Happens When We Sleep and Do Dreams Really Matter". I know science can describe in detail different types of sleep, but what is actually going on. The Keyboard is Hot and Ready and Open for You! Take it Away!





Joseph is warned in a Dream to rise up and Flee with the Child into Egypt.

Wow... Great Post Tom and a very good question.

I guess there are several examples in the Word of "Communication Through Dreams". There's Joseph telling his brothers about his dream where he would rule over them Genesis 37.

Also in Genisis 40 Joseph while in prison Joseph interprets the Cup bearer and the Bakers Dreams. One is restored to prominence the other is killed.Joseph says in Genesis 40:8... "Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell me your dreams."


Tom I could go on and on and on... there are hundreds of examples in the word of communication via dreams.
There's Danial interpeting the Kings Dream in the Book of Danial and ... well... tell you what... go to BibleGateway.com and type in "dreams". See you in about a month when you finish reading what you find there.

My main point being "yes I do really think dreams are important and they matter and they are a way for us earth bound clods to get a more spiritual picture of what's going on. I think most of us are much easier to communicate with in our dreams than our waking hours... so the Lord does that.

I'll stop typin' and let somebody else in here! Sorry to be so wordy... But this is a Great Post and a really Good Question. Thanks Tom.

Great Subject Tom. Thanks.

I could just share one thing that happened to me when I was young. I was going to go with friends witnessing door to door and pass out tracks. The night before ... or I should say early in the wee hours of the morning I had a dream that I went to this house and met this boy who had a huge birthmark, covering half his face and he was def and dumb... about 10 years old. I woke up after the dream and sat straight up and it was so vivid and really stood out. After thinking about it... I came to the conclution that my mind was full of the subject and I just left it at that.

Later that day we went door to door to witness and it was an area not of my choosing and one that I had never been to before. We came up to one duplex and I was kind of shocked because it looked like the dream and I thought naw, it couldn't be. To my surprise who came to the door with the mother, but the same boy from the dream. Sure shootin'... his face had this huge birth mark and he was def and dumb, but he looked in my face with amazement and I in his. I showed him pictures of Jesus and didn't know what else to say or do.

All that to say yep... I believe dreams are a door that God sometimes uses to show us things, to warn us, to direct us, to show us the reality of what lies beyond this world. I've often wondered what happened to that little child, but maybe the Lord just had that happen so I could write up the story here and encourage others faith. Thanks again Tom for a great Topic Post!

Dreams Are Where the Soul is Set Free from The Body to See and Learn and Do Things Otherwise Impossible. Many a man has awoken from a Dream with a new goal or a new direction that has Changed his Life. If we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses is it any great wonder that there might be some communication that goes on with them in our sleep. Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

I guess only God knows, but it sure seems to fit to me. Great post Tom.

I don't dream hardly at all

Post by John on Fri Oct 09, 2009 6:47 pm

Folks I don't dream hardly at all, but I do believe the Lord could speak to you that way if needed. Slept like a log ever since I was a kid, but I do know what it is to have a dream... something God lays on your heart of some good or righteous thing you feel compelled to do. Some right you need to fight for and that maybe you might call a waking dream... I don't know, but I was always moved by this piece from the Movie "The Impossible Dream". Though it's a bit off topic I'll stick it here for anyone interested.
