Dreams and Visions by Mayada Naami

For God speaks in one way, and in two, though man does not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men, while they slumber on their beds, then he opens the ears of men and terrifies them with warnings, that he may turn man aside from his deed and conceal pride from a man; he keeps back his soul from the pit, his life from perishing by the sword.

(Job 33:14-18, NIV)

The Bible says when we enter a deep sleep- REM sleep (where dreams occur) we can hear from God and, where the Holy Spirit can give us a vision or connect with us. In the Bible many times the Spirit would come to someone in a dream. He is not silent when we stay in the Word, when we meditate day and night, He speaks to us through dreams and visions. The pastor at my church just finished a series called “Dream to Destiny” and he says, if you receive a dream from God, until the time that dream comes to pass, the Word is going to test you.  

Daniel replied, “No wise man, enchanter, magician or diviner can explain to the king the mystery he has asked about, but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries. He has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will happen in days to come. Your dream and the visions that passed through your mind as you were lying in bed are these: “As Your Majesty was lying there, your mind turned to things to come, and the revealer of mysteries showed you what is going to happen. As for me, this mystery has been revealed to me, not because I have greater wisdom than anyone else alive, but so that Your Majesty may know the interpretation and that you may understand what went through your mind. (Daniel 2: 27-30, NIV)

In 2011, the year I was reborn in Christ, I woke up one night with a vision of a snake swishing around my bed. I remember feeling as if my tongue was swollen and I could not speak.  After several attempts at speaking, I finally was able to say one Word, Jesus and everything became quiet and still. I knew it was a paranormal experience and now I realize it was the enemy trying to silence me with fear. In Ephesians 6:12, we are told,” For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” I truly believe that was my first experience with the spiritual forces of evil. That was when I began my “Dream to Destiny” journey.
