11 ways to know if dream is from God

Published

By




All of us have dreams. The question is whether or not any of these dreams are the type of dreams that are sent to us by God to communicate with us. In the book of Joel it says,

Joel 2:28 “Then, after doing all those things, I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams, and your young men will see visions

Dangerous dreams

1 Can you remember the dream? If you can’t remember the dream when you wake up, it wasn’t from God. If God chooses to communicate to you through a dream He will ensure that you remember it.

You should write down any dream that you believe might originate from God straight away, as that will help you remember it later.

When you do that, you should describe the main plot, characters and elements such as colours, objects and the atmosphere. Daniel 7:1 says,

“In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream and visions of his head while on his bed. Then he wrote down the dream, telling the main facts.”

2 clearly structured or confusing?

God brings order into chaos and clear focus into confusion. You might not understand a God-given dream fully but if a dream is confusing it is never from God. Paul told Timothy, READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

3 Is the dream connected to something you are processing in your mind? If the dream deals with something you worry or think about a lot it is probably a result of your subconscious attempting to resolve what your conscious mind can’t. Also, if you watch a movie late at night you might see a sequel to it at night—with you playing the hero! Unless the dream gives an unexpected solution to your problem you should disregard it.

4. What is the emotional atmosphere? Most dreams filled with anxiety or despair come from the subconscious that functions as an overpressure valve for our fears. If you suppress your fears and anxieties they will appear in your dreams.

But God never adds fear to your life; He always reduces it. You might see a dream that shows you the cause of your fear but then provides a solution. This kind of dream is often from God.

The emotional atmosphere is often the key to the interpretation.

5. Is the dream linked to something God has already revealed to you? God often adds or brings depth to what He has already revealed through a dream. It is yet another channel for Him to reveal His purposes and perspective.

6 Is there biblical symbolism? Distrust any dream dictionaries as symbols often have different meanings in different cultures. If God uses symbols He chooses them based on what they mean to you rather than someone else. On the other hand, biblical symbols often point to a dream coming from God.

7. Is it a ‘realistic’ dream? If so, it might refer to a real-life future situation, unless it clearly refers to the past. You might not be sure whether the dream was from God until you face that situation, and then it will help you to act the right way.

8 Do you wake up into God’s presence? Sometimes I wake up with a distinct sense that a dream was from God. At other times, I wake up into a strong presence of God, and that can be a sign that it is a God-given dream.

At other times God is present as He is dealing with a demonic attack that took place through a dream. It is usually easy to tell the difference.

Investigation Into Cause Of Lagos Cholera Outbreak Not Concluded

Published

By


 

The Lagos state government has explained that unregistered tiger nut drinks have not been identified as the cause of the recent cholera outbreak in the state.

There were reports that Kemi Ogunyemi, special adviser to the Lagos state governor on health, said unregistered tiger nut drinks had caused the outbreak.

In an interview on Saturday, Ogunyemi was quoted as saying a survey carried out in Eti-Osa LGA showed that people who visited hospitals in the early days of the outbreak all said they had consumed an unregistered tiger nut drink.

“We found empty bottles with a name on them, but we discovered that it wasn’t even registered with the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, the regulatory body that ensures the safety of consumables,” she was quoted as saying.

“There was a phone number and a name on the bottle, and we started tracing. We did contact tracing, similar to what we did with COVID-19. We combed the area to ask people where they got the drinks from.

“We couldn’t find any full bottles. We only found empty ones, which were of no use because we could not test them. The phone number on the bottle was not reachable.”

Reacting to the reports, Tunbosun Ogunbanwo, spokesperson of the ministry of health in Lagos, said Ogunyemi was misquoted.

“Investigations into what caused the outbreak is still ongoing. It is not true that it was caused by tiger nut drink,” he said.

On June 11, Akin Abayomi, Lagos commissioner for health, said five people had died while about 60 residents were hospitalised as a result of the “suspected” cholera outbreak in some parts of the city.

Days later, the commissioner confirmed the cholera outbreak and said there have been 350 suspected cases — with 17 confirmed and 15 fatalities.

As of June 20, there have been 24 deaths and 35 confirmed cholera cases in Lagos.

Rachael Olufogbe, a 300-level student of the Federal University, Oye Ekiti in Ekiti State, has been arrested.

She was arrested by the police following a physical assault on a fellow student on Saturday.

It was gathered that the incident happened in a private hostel located in Oye Egbo, a community outside the school premises after Olufogbe and another female occupant disagreed with the right of drying line in the hostel.

The PUNCH correspondent learnt that the victim moved Olufogbe’s clothes to create space on the clothesline before spreading her clothes. However, Olufogbe protested this act, leading to an exchange of words between the two.

The situation escalated quickly as Olufogbe was said to have picked a blade to inflict bodily injuries on the victim. READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

Pictures obtained by our correspondent showed that the victim suffered bloody cuts in her throat, head, and chest.

The school’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof Sunday Fashina, confirmed the incident to our correspondent on Saturday.

He said, “The incident happened outside the campus in a private hostel. Nobody dares that within the campus because they know the rules and regulations. If anyone tries that, it will catch up with them. The police are already handling it.

“The suspect is in police custody, and once it involves the police, we cannot interfere. When they are done with their investigations, they will write to the Vice-Chancellor to give their report, then we conduct our investigation. So, let’s wait for the outcome of the police investigation.”

Efforts to reach the state Police Public Relations Officer, Sunday Abutu, were unsuccessful as calls made to his phone rang out and he was yet to reply to a message sent to his WhatsApp line as of press time.
