Finding out if dreams come from the devil...

Post by daphanie02 on Sat Nov 26, 2011 6:53 pm

I dreamed last night that I was watching the movie Rob Roy and he and his wife were so very much
in love. I saw how the movie began, then I was sad because I knew Rob had to go
to war later.. Suddenly Angelina Jolie appeared to pose as a messenger with an
oracle about the wife's future. She told the woman her husband would die and she
would be in mourning for the rest of her life. She told her to make sure and buy
a black transparent veil and wear it so everyone would know to stay away from
her when she became a widow. Then I found that I couldn't help but notice how
Angelina Jolie was trying to be lustful and bring attention to
herself..(representing a messenger of the king of this world and not the King of
kings). Then it seemed as the Holy Spirit spoke to me how the devil uses the
worries in our every day life that he knows about (through familiar spirits) to
apply them and integrate them in our dreams to cause us to fear or misguide us.
I then was drawn back into a movie theatre as if I were watching this there the
entire time. I found an older woman there that was very wise and I recognized
her as someone that knew things about dreams..I hurried to ask her a question
I'd always wanted to know. I asked, "Is the devil able to give us dreams?" She
said "He is able to integrate our thoughts and worries from every day life into
our dreams, but that does not make them prophetic. The devil cannot prophecy, he
can only work through familiar spirits." Then I began to speak to the multitude
that was in the theatre about things that I felt were truth. I knew some
listened..those that had a true heart for God, but the others were too busy with
worries of this life to take heed. The dream ended with Praise and Worship being
shouted to the Lord on High!!

Very interesting Laura,

Funnily enough Mia recently brought to my attention about 'worry dreams' which I was totally not convinced about, but if there is evidence for the physiological benefits of dreaming I see these 'worry dreams' as a call to prayer because it is showing us a heart issue and something that needs much prayer. Scripture clearly states that we have not been given the spirit of fear but of power and love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7) and not to be anxious for anything (Philippians 4:6).

It seems to me that this was a question you have been pondering 'finding out if dreams come from the devil' and you received your answer...

Very interesting indeed

This is an AMAZING dream! Just last week I was searching for the answer to that EXACT question.

Thank you for sharing this Daph.

I even searched this site and couldn't fine anything so this is such a revelation to me.

Now, my question (well next question lol! ) is....how do we know the difference between the prophetic and "worry dreams"?

jjp708 you took the words right out of my mouth I wanted to ask this thanks for posting this question. I struggled with the whole 'worry dreams' because the dreams I had thought where 'worry dreams' turned out to be prophetic and not just one! So I would love to know the answer to this as well.

Learning about Gods dream language is such a journey/experience what got me recently was that you can actually have revelation about other peoples thoughts! http://miasherwood.forumotion.net/t14832-burglars-fire

One way I can tell the difference is that most dreams from the Lord have a prophetic sign the next day that reminds us of the dream we had the night before. It's not neccesarily a manifestation of the dream, but you recognize a symbol IRL from the dream you had the night before that makes you go "WOAH!! I had a dream about that last night!!!" It's the Lord's way of saying "this is a message from me, so pay attention to it, cause it's gonna happen."

But not all prophetic dreams come with this sign...but still it helps me to recognize at least those that do. laugh

rofl laugh Now just when I was going to start looking for all these symbols you hit me with that following post. bandaid ROTFL

I know often times when I'm feeling alot of anxiety about something I usually dream about it. The dream is usually plays out as sort of an answer but I often wondering if the dreams are birthed out of my own desires or "worry" that something's not going to happen.

Now, if you can follow what I just said without getting confused you are really a master of ALL THINGS. holy moly :laughing:

laugh rofl I know what you mean!! But I've gotten myself in trouble in the past by giving a "Word" from a dream I'd had as a result from something I worried about. It ended up being the OPPOSITE of what I was worried about and what the dream was...so I learned to be more careful. All the dreams I have go through several "filters" before they hold weight...know what I mean?

Thanks for posting your dream daphanie.

The reason I was cheering is because

I think in some ways, this opponent and cursor (Angelina) is like an idol, in that, some opponents may seem larger than God's promises, casting shadow over His light and that gives them power in our lives to believe what they imply, that is a lie.

I do know what you mean and that's what I need to do. The Word says to test the spirits. That could mean dreams too, huh?

So basically, what are the filters?

How can you tell if a dream is a message from God or just your own thoughts?

(1John 4:1) I understood this scripture to be talking about the 'spirit' that is in someone because many 'false' prophets have gone out into the world.

I guess we need to discern the message from our dreams because if God is speaking to us He is for a reason.

Job 33:16 "He may speak in their ears and terrify them with warnings..." Would we be able to discern a 'warning' dream because upon waking I am sure this kind of 'message' would feel 'scary' is it possible to mistake this kind of dream as a 'worry' dream?

So true, I recall our dialogue awhile back and you reiterated this to me. Pharaoh's dream was 'doubled' in one night (Genesis 41: 5;25;28) and it was significant because God was revealing what He was about to do. But even if the 'dreams' are not 'doubled' in one night in Job 33: 14 -15 tells us that God speaks again and again but man doesn't recognize it in a dream, in visions of the night.

Hi Daphanie
I like your dream. It seems like God is setting you up to inform others with the gift of dreams to be discerning of what is of God and what is influenced by the devil as some dreamers may not know....
