Dios se comunica por medio de sueños

Does God speak to us through dreams? | According to the Bible

Read Time:4 Minute, 2 Second

A few days ago, I heard the story about a friend of mine, here in the country where I live.

His story, like today’s topic, is related to whether God speaks to us through dreams.

He is a young man born in a Middle Eastern country, where becoming a Christian is so dangerous that it can even lead to death or jail.

Jesus came into the life of this young man online, through the testimony of Christian friends abroad.

Then by reading the New Testament, and finally, my friend claims to have seen Jesus in a dream.

This dream led him to make the decision to abandon everything, flee his country, and give his life to Jesus.

Today, as I continued my study of the book of Daniel, I came across a somewhat similar story.

It is about the dream of the king of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar.

The bible says that one night the king had a dream that greatly disturbed him, so he sent for his best wise men and fortune-tellers to interpret the dream for him.

However, to avoid his dream being falsely interpreted, he told them that he would not tell them the dream, but that they should tell it and interpret it.

The soothsayers, of course, told him that this was impossible for a human being, and that only the gods could do it.

The king, furious at their response, had all the wise men of the Babylonian kingdom killed, including Daniel.

Upon learning of the situation, Daniel asked that he be given time to discover and interpret the dream.

For some reason, they gave him a few days.

Daniel then dedicated himself to asking God in fasting and prayer to show him the dream and its interpretation.

God did so.

In this way, Daniel saved his life and that of many people in Babylon.

Let’s read a couple Bible verses with what Daniel said to the king when he presented himself to give him the interpretation of the dream:

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.

 

| Daniel 2:27-28

The king’s dream was a prophetic vision of the future of mankind, from his time until the second coming of Christ.

In this particular post, we are not going to deal with the subject of the dream, but with the purpose of God, and the reason why He decided to communicate with the king through a dream.

God gave this prophecy because He wants it to be known to us today.

He also wanted it to be widely known to the people of the time.

In order to give the king and his kingdom the opportunity to abandon idolatry and worship the true God.

God wanted to give the opportunity to all the wise men, soldiers, and people of the kingdom to find out about his power through the news of what happened to Daniel.

Babylonian culture, like many cultures today, viewed dreams as a means by which their gods communicated with them.

In general, the subject was of high importance to them.

In his desire to save people, God uses means familiar to their culture to help people draw closer to him.

Such was the case with Nebuchadnezzar and my friend.

I believe that we cannot mystify dreams, and live in superstition thinking that all dreams come from God.

Thinking that every dream has some encrypted message from heaven for us.

Today we have learned, thanks to the advancement of our civilization, that dreams, in general, are a manifestation of our unconscious mind.

However, the Bible does bear witness to us that eventually, according to our culture, and if necessary for his purposes, God communicates with us in a way that we can understand.

Even through dreams.

My advice is that we be open to what God can do, without living in mysticism or getting into the esoteric.

I hope these words have been a blessing in your life.
