Interpret Your Christian Dream
And understand its meaning.
If you believe that God speaks to us through dreams and visions, then he is talking to us every night of our lives. About one-third of the Bible is taken up by dreams and visions – about the size of the New Testament! There are more than 120 mentions of dreams in the Bible. God has chosen dreams as a major way to communicate with his people.
So there’s nothing demonic or spiritualist about searching for meaning in our dreams, and in this short article we hope to help you interpret the dreams God gives you every night.

You, too can hear and discern the voice of God!
How to interpret symbols?
A bit of common sense should do the trick – but perhaps you’re too close to the forest to see the trees, so you can try telling a friend your dream – that can be very helpful.
Here’s an example:
Were you eating or preparing the apple? Eating means you’re worried about something; preparing means you’re thinking about the future. Apples symbolise sin (though they can also be seeds) so if in your dream you are baking an apple pie that smells rancid, you might be dwelling on a past sin that you haven’t asked forgiveness for.
If you can’t think of a sin that would fit the dream, consider alternative exlanations. For example, a new project you started recently isn’t going to go well.
Anchor – hope
Angel – messenger
Ant – togetherness or unity
Apple – sin
Banner – God announcing his presence
