The Relativity of dream symbols
The Devil and his agents would have you ignorant that your dream is just that a silly dream. I promise you my friend your dream is by far more of a reality than your everyday life!
I have mentioned in so many of my teachings on dreams, that while your physical body is asleep, the real you, which is your spirit is actively engaged in the world of the spirit. The disadvantage to the dreamer is that they are unaware of the symbols being presented or revealed to them via the dream. Symbols in a dream will always be relative to the dreamer’s, culture, job, family and way of life etc. For example, if you are employed at a hospital, then the contents of your dreams will for the most part be symbolized by things of your place of employment in this case a Hospital.
So you’ve had a dream and in this dream you’re at work (the hospital) you’re feeling a bit weak and tired. Right next to you there is a medical book on the Human Anatomy; you opened the book and began to read. All of a sudden you began to regain your strength and energy while reading, dream ended. Again, always remember that your dreams are spiritual and therefore must be considered as such. Seeing yourself in this dream represents your spirit. Feelings of weakness and tiredness is revealing your lack of spiritual food in other words your spirit is malnourished. However, you discovered in the dream that a book on the Human Anatomy is next to you and you began to read it. The Human Anatomy book represents the Bible (The word of God) which is spiritual food that will replenish and restore your spirit.
So over all the dream is revealing to the dreamer from a spiritual perspective, that his or her everyday natural challenges are as a result of neglecting the things and more specifically the word of God. So even though they may appear physically healthy, inwardly they are emotionally, spiritually and mentally confuse unstable, frustrated, indecisive, fatigue etc. Physical food replenishes our physical bodies while our spirits can only be replenished by the word of God, which is God, John 1:1 which by the way is also his Spirit, John 6:63.
Another scenario, If you are constantly dreaming of strange folks or creatures chasing you in your dreams, then you must again keep in mind these folks or strange creatures that are chasing you are indeed evil spirits chasing your spirit in the dream. Please keep at the front of your mind, that whatever takes place in the spirit realm, then the natural world in which we live will be the birth place for it to be manifested. Nevertheless, this can only occur if there is an agreement between your spirit in the dream and whatever spirits you’re interacting with in the dream. The entire purpose of the dream is to forge a spiritual agreement to secure natural manifestation, be it from the things of God or the things of Satan. To cancel a negative dream upon waking is to cancel the negative spiritual implications in the natural realm. To agree with a dream; and this can be done by simply not canceling the dream, which by default is agreeing to the dream or upon waking if it is a good dream you would pray and say the following, “Father God if this dream was from you, then I come in agreement with your purpose and plans for my life, in the name of Jesus Christ”.
If you are being chased in a dream this dream represents defeat and error and here is why this is so. The bible says the following, “The wicked flee when no man pursues him but the righteous are as bold as a lion”, Proverbs 28:1. So to see yourself running away from those that are attacking you in the dream is an “ERROR” because you as the righteous is described in the above scripture as being bold as a lion, so why are you fleeing?
Let’s observe another scripture that will bring even more clarity to such a dream, “There is an evil that I have seen under the sun, as it were an error proceeding from the ruler: folly is set in many high places, and the rich sit in a low place. I have seen slaves on horses, and princes walking on the ground like slaves” Eccl.10:5-7. King Solomon the Author of the above scripture is revealing spiritual insight, that whenever it is observed that something that is right and normal being twisted or being performed in the opposite position or direction, not only is it a curse but it is clearly indicating a spirit of ERROR!
Again, you as a righteous person being chased in a dream should be the other way around, you should be chasing your chasers. Upon waking from such dreams you must pray vigorously against the spirit of defeat and the spirit of error that is attempting to conceive error and defeat in the spirit realm with the intent of garnering your cooperation to birth the manifestation of the spirits of defeat and error in your natural life.
