Example: What Did This Dream Mean?

Recently, I've been thinking about this dream I had 2 years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter. I lived in my own apartment alone. I took a nap in the recliner and dreamed this black figure (looked like a person) was sitting on my couch and got up to come over to my chair. I kept trying to open my eyes and I just couldn't. It bent down closer to me then stood straight up and disappeared into the kitchen. I never had a dream like that again. What do you think it meant?

What have researchers learned about dreams?
“Everyone dreams,” says The World Book Encyclopedia (1984, Vol. 5, p. 279). “Most adults dream for about 100 minutes during eight hours of sleep.” So dreams are a normal human experience.
Said Dr. Allan Hobson, of Harvard Medical School: “They are ambiguous stimuli which can be interpreted in any way a therapist is predisposed to. But their meaning is in the eye of the beholder—not in the dream itself.” When reporting this, the “Science Times” section of The New York Times added: “Within the school that places great value on dreams, there are many approaches to finding the psychological message of a dream, each reflecting different theoretical outlooks. A Freudian will find one kind of meaning in a dream, while a Jungian will find another, and a Gestalt therapist will find still another meaning. . . . But the view that dreams have psychological meaning at all has come under strong attack from neuroscientists.”—July 10, 1984, p. C12.

Can dreams that seem to impart special knowledge come from a source other than God?
Jer. 29:8, 9: “This is what Jehovah of armies . . . has said: ‘Let not your prophets who are in among you and your practicers of divination deceive you, and do not you listen to their dreams that they are dreaming. For “it is in falsehood that they are prophesying to you in my name. I have not sent them,” is the utterance of Jehovah.’”

Harper’s Bible Dictionary informs us: “Babylonians had such trust in dreams that on the eve of important decisions they slept in temples, hoping for counsel. Greeks desiring health instruction slept in shrines of Aesculapius [whose emblem was a serpent], and Romans in temples of Serapis [at times associated with a coiled serpent]. Egyptians prepared elaborate books for dream interpretation.”—(New York, 1961), Madeleine Miller and J. Lane Miller, p. 141.

In the past, God used dreams to give warnings, instruction, and prophecy, but is he leading his people in that way now?

References to such dreams originating with God are found at Matthew 2:13, 19, 20; 1 Kings 3:5; Genesis 40:1-8.

Heb. 1:1, 2: “God, who long ago spoke on many occasions and in many ways [including dreams] to our forefathers by means of the prophets, has at the end of these days spoken to us by means of a Son [Jesus Christ, whose teachings are recorded in the Bible].”

1 Cor. 13:8: “Whether there are gifts of prophesying [and at times God conveyed prophecies to his servants by means of dreams], they will be done away with.”

2 Tim. 3:16, 17: “All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching . . . that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work.”

1 Tim. 4:1: “However, the inspired utterance says definitely that in later periods of time some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired utterances [sometimes conveyed in dreams] and teachings of demons.”

Then after i said it, about 5 mins... a car starts slowing down next to us, so i instantly yell and tell my friend to run. I'm a runner so i guess i somehow outran a guy that was chasing me. meanwhile my friend was taken and shoved in th car. As i was running through the woods i came along a house and started yelling and banging on the doors and windows, no one was home. then i see that car (which my friend got kidnapped in) pull up in the driveway so i instantly start running again. I guess i fell the passed out because next thing i know i was in the front seet of that car. One of the guys was in the back seet leaning over to try and touch me.. but then i crouched down under the dash board. i got so frightened i awoke right then. what do you dream gurus think my dream means?

most of my dreams are pretty wacky or unreal, that I dont believe they do have a meaning. I took a nap after school. In my dream, My dad, died in a work accident that like cut of his legs or something. Then he actually came back to our house as a ghost and acted exactly like he normally would even though he was a ghost. I mean he told me how he died and everything else. I mean could this dream mean something to me. he is still alive, but working right now. seriously could this dream mean something?

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

Example: What could my dream possibly mean?

When I took a nap this afternoon, I had a dream. I was hanging out with eight of my friends. We were coming home from wherever we had been when we were stopped, and six Muslim men boarded us, four in the truck bed of my friend's truck (where there were six of us) and two in the front (where there were three of us). They had rifles and the leader of the group told my friend to keep driving or they'll kill us. Which is weird because they made us stop in an empty lot near a creek, made us get down, and either slit our throats, beheaded us, or shot us to death. Until none of us were left alive.
It was so ******* disturbing I woke up crying and screaming (and kicking)!
