Michelangelo pictured God like a strong man
I have dreamed about God and God said.
Welcome to our article (6), I dreamed about God
May God guide and help me to say the right things?
Dear readers, I have dreamed about God, and I believe that this dream, is the most important dream of my life, because I believe that our dreams can be linked to the cosmos, God, and the spiritual universe. Well, I assume this belief, because most people believe that dreams are a link to the spiritual world, and dreams can come from the world of the dead, or the cosmos.
Therefore, we must look at our personal dreams to understand what they can mean. You see, when we sleep, and we dream about God, we believe that the dream must mean something important. Therefore, for me, that believe in God and spiritual beings, to dream about God, must be “the most important dream of my life”. I believe it is the most important dream because this is the first dream and the beginning of my writing of dreamland spiritual dreams. But let me tell you the dream.
This dream was a long dream, it seems to foretell my own file, because what I was dreaming in a way became true. Anyhow, after dreaming many other things, I and my fiancé or wife find ourselves in a crowd, we all move forward and want to go down a flight of mobile stairs, in this large building that seems to be a large shopping centre, but it is so crowded that we cannot move, so, we are waiting for our turn. Suddenly I turn and see that my fiancé has managed to go down the flight of stairs without me, I do not understand how she managed to do that, but now I am alone. Here the dream stops and changes,
Now I am in the country of my native town, where we had a small farm, I want to go to town, but this time I am using a road that goes past one of the vineyards of my grandpa, and the town cemetery. In my dream I am walking or floating above ground and there is a bridge to cross, I am having some difficulties to cross this bridge, So, I am praying and making the sign of the cross, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, again and again. by doing so, I manage to cross the bridge, and then continue to go to town past the cemetery. I reach the cemetery and instead of going past, I enter in the cemetery the land of the dead and went to the main chapel. But this chapel is not like the chapel as I know it, but it is a small church, I am entering this church with this lady that is purposed to be my wife now, but she does not look like my wife, because her hair style is like the Madonna of Genzano (my hometown) that we take around town when there is a feast. I have carried this Madonna ones or twice.
In this church that we have entered, there are only a few pews, and perhaps a dozen people sitting there. Now, I know that this church is situated right at the top of a high hill, the interior looks very ancient and tidy, it is very airy but small, we could say that it is only a chapel, but the priest there, is the best priest one can ever have, because the priest there is God himself.
I and this lady that I am with try to sit in a pew, she sits so far away from me, so, I try to sit close and be nice to her, but she gets up and goes away.
I kept sitting in the same pew, and I was wondering why she had left me. Anyhow, I turned to see what was happening in the church, and I saw on this golden stone floor the priest appears, or here I should say that God Himself appears, or perhaps it is the Holly Spirit that appears to me. The priest is a middle-aged man of martial appearance, taller than the average man and well dressed, but his clothes were normal everyday clothes, to me he seemed the most perfect man that I have ever seen.
Anyhow, I do not know how, but I found myself kneeling beside God the priest, and God placed one of his hands on my head, and his other hand on my back, just where my back is sore, and then God said, THIS MAN IS A BIT OLD BUT SO WHAT, and then again, THIS MAN IS A BIT OLD BUT SO WHAT, as if whatever I was supposed to do for God, my age would not make any difference at all. And then He let me go.
I moved away from Him to go back to my sit, but before I sat, I turned around to see what else was happening, so, I saw God again on that golden-stone-floor, while God was turning away from us and leaving us. At the same time, I became aware that God was carrying in His hand a large hoop as His symbol of power.
Now let me explain how this hoop was His symbol of power, and why this man is God. The hoop was about eighty centimetre plus in diameter, attached to this hoop there were about a dozen little hangers, and on each of these hangers were several pieces of material like cloth. To demonstrate his power, God touched one of those pieces of cloth, and I could hear voices that sounded like, as if all the molecule of air were talking with a single voice, and they were saying: He touches one of these pieces of material, and He knows everything up to the smallest possible existing particle.
Then my dream slowly fades away. But I know that I have dreamed about God, because no human being can analyse everything to the smallest particle, just by touching something, So, I have dreamed about God.
Anyhow, to dream about God can be a shock to anybody, so, later when I woke up in the morning I thought; maybe I am going to die soon. This could be the reason why I dreamed about meeting God, but that was not the reason at all. Because later this dream has motivated me to write religious articles, my spiritual dreams, and my religious beliefs. Therefore, I believe that this is the most important dream of my life, and I will write my spiritual dreams and my religious beliefs. Since we would like to suggest things that can improve religions.
Religious people have dreams and visions
Dreaming about God can affect our views.
Anyhow, I have written above my dream, I have dreamed about God, and now, I would like to know, who else has dreamed about God? In this article, we will also be talking about some dreams in the Bible, and the importance of our spiritual dreams. Anyhow, some answers about dreaming can be found in my Hub Pages articles, Mankind Dreamland, and, Dreamland dreams and beliefs.
I believe that our mind tries to understand dreams, especially if we think that our dreams have important messages. You know, people have always attached importance to dreams, even in the Bible they talk about God sending dreams to people.
So, we want to know, where these dreams come from, and discuss about God’s sent dreams, because we are talking about my spiritual dreams and dreaming about God.
Perhaps it is our wishful thinking, that we want to see that there is a permanent link, between us God and the spiritual dimension, where God and its angels and other spirits dwell; on earth we call this the spiritual world or the world of the dead. Anyhow, I have dreamed about God, and for me this dream about God, is a very important dream, because it has motivated me to write more religious articles.
Let us talk about our dreams
Let us talk about God's sent dreams.
Now, let us talk about God’s sent dreams, because even the Bible says that they happen. We believe that dreams are the medium that links us to the spiritual life force of the universe; because through the dreams we may become aware of things that we don’t know, but they exist in the universe, and somehow our minds can view those things in our dreams. Anyhow, this is one way of how I believe and understand it.
Anyhow, because I have dreamed about God, today I am still wondering what this dream about God means, because I believe that this dream, is the most important dream of my life.
So, we want to ask our readers; who else has dreamed about God? And we invite you to share your dream with us. I know from reading religious and history books, that people have always believed that their dreams mean something, so, here are a few examples that I have found:
Let us start from the Bible, some people say that 1/3 of the Bible is about dreams and visions, there are lots of important people in the Bible, that have dreamed a God sent dream; the most important dreams that we hear mentioned in religious rites are about: Abraham, then Joseph (in Egypt), Daniel, and Joseph (Jesus’ father) and others.
Religious people believe that God has always talked to His children in their dreams. Today we don’t attach much significance to vision and dreams, as we did in the past, but I believe that whatever they mean is still there.
Starting from Abraham, when the Bible history started, there are many dreams mentioned in the Bible. You see, in this link hereunder, is written that in the Bible dreams and visions are mentioned 224 times, and that, in Matthew the first 2 chapters contain 5 recorded dreams. Many important things have been revealed through dreams. Now, if you follow the Christian religions, you know that God son Jesus, was revealed in dreams.
The Holy Bible
The dreams written in the Bible
There are many dreams written in the Bible. So, I believe that we should start in a chronological order from Abraham, who was one of the first people mentioned in the Bible. Abraham had visions, dreams, and Covenant with God; it seems that in those times, God was more willing to show up on earth than now.
In the Bible, Abraham talks with God many times, whether God was there, or it was a vision is not clearly explained. At the beginning, in the Bible Genesis 12/1, Yahweh said to Abram, ‘Leave your country, your family and your father house, for the land I will show you’. That is how God starts to talk to Abram in the Bible, so, Abram later called Abraham by God, was talking to God, it ends up, that Abraham had a Covenant with God, that is valid even today, because this is the link that links humanity to Yahweh the God of Israel and the Bible.
One of the most mentioned dreams in the Bible, is the Pharaoh dream, that Joseph the son of Rachel and Jacob (Israel), Jacob was the son of Isaac and nephew to Abraham. Anyhow, this Joseph interpreted for the Pharaoh these dreams, that the Pharaoh had, and thus he saved Egypt from famine.
The Pharaoh dreamed of seven fat cows, which then were devoured by seven skinny cows. In a second dream Pharaoh dreamed of seven good ears of corn, which were then devoured by seven shrivelled ears of corn. Joseph interpreted the dream thus: In the land of Egypt there will be seven years of plenty followed by seven years of famine. The Pharaoh saw what the dream meant and acted accordingly and saved Egypt from the following future famine. Thus, God through Joseph saved Egypt from famine, and Joseph gained the Pharaoh trust, so, he was put in charge for collecting collectable food during the years of plenty, and then distributing food in the years of famine.
Another interpreter of dreams in the Bible is Daniel
At the Persian court, Daniel interpreted Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, and Nebuchadnezzar rewards Daniel with a high position at the court. A few years later, Daniel was called to interpreter another dream, regarding this immense tree that was cut down, and then allowed to sprout again; with great caution Daniel interpreted the dream; thus, the immense tree was the great monarch himself, that would be driven from mankind and live in the wildness for seven years, but then, he would be allowed to return to his former self and regain his kingdom.
As it happened, the year after the dream, Nebuchadnezzar became insane, and for seven years he lived as an animal, but then he regained his sanity and his kingdom again. It is said that this was God Yahweh plan, to punish Nebuchadnezzar for being arrogant, and believing to be above God. This event also helped prepare, for the return of the Jews to Israel, since Nebuchadnezzar, now believed that God was above him, so, he let the Jews go. Well, that is the way that is explained in the Bible, Yahweh cause all those things to happen, so that, his people could return to their promised land.
Another important personage is, Joseph (the father or stepfather of Jesus) he had many dreams and visions, which helped him to understand the situation and the will of God. Through his vision, an angel appeared to Joseph, and said that Mary was pregnant from the Holy Spirit of God, and he should accept her pregnancy; so, Joseph got married to Mary, a pregnant girl, because Yahweh’s angel explained to him the facts of her pregnancy. Joseph had other vision of this angel, and several warning dreams in his life, which helped him to avoid dangerous situations. There are more dreams written in the Bible, but I think I have said enough.
Just another way of believing in God
This God imagine could be God of the future
Dreaming about God
Now that we have written about these dreams of well-known people in the Bible, let me talk about my dreams; I have to say that I am still concerned about my dream about God and what it could mean. Because you see, these people that I have written about were God chosen people, and in the Bible, they are portrayed thus. But you and I we are simple people who dream dreams, which we believe are God sent dreams. So, we believe that dreams are important.
Anyhow, we have talked about God sent dreams in this article. So, we are interested in the dreams that we dream, and what they could mean to the dreamers. So, I would like to link these religious dreams, with our other dreams I have written Dreams and What They May Mean, where we write about dreams in general; this will be followed by other articles about dreams. Anyhow, I believe that I have said enough in this article, so, see you in our next article, where we will continue to talk about dreams and God send dreams. See you soon.
May God bless us all.
