Listening to the One Who is Speaking to Us from Heaven

Be careful that you do not refuse to listen to the One who is speaking. For if the people of Israel did not escape when they refused to listen to Moses, the earthly messenger, we will certainly not escape if we reject the One who speaks to us from heaven!

Hebrews 12:25 (NLT)

In both the Old and New Testaments, the Bible makes many mentions of God speaking to people through dreams and visions. And as Peter explained (see Acts 2:14-19), we are now living in the days when dreams and visions are a regular way that God communicates.

If God has gone to the effort to give me a dream or vision, then the message he is communicating is important to himand therefore I should consider it important to me.

If I had a family member who repeatedly communicated through metaphors and symbols, yet I didn’t learn to interpret them, I would be missing a large part of what they were saying to me—and missing out on a vital aspect of our relationship.

In the same way, if I ignore or don’t bother to seek interpretation from the Holy Spirit for a dream or vision, I am missing out on important communication from God which he intends to be part of our relationship.

I don’t want to miss out. I want be as close to God’s heart as he invites me to be.

For a deeper, Scripture-based examination of this topic, plus biblical aids for practical application, I recommend the book The Divinity Code to Understanding Your Dreams and Visions by Adam F. Thompson and Adrian Beale (Destiny Image, 2011).

A word of caution: not every dream interpretation resource is based on the Bible and guided by the Holy Spirit. We need to use discernment and ask God for help.
