How are you? Hope you had or are having a good day today?
We see people in dreams. Today, I would like to share the link of James W. Goll’s writing “People Who Appear in Your Dream.” I hope it would help you interpret the people in your dreams in the past and in the future. I think we can refer to this, but at the end of the day, we always ask the Lord to help interpret our dreams.
In the late fall and the winter, 2020, I kept seeing a Christian friend whom I lost touch with for many years. She and I were friends since we were in the elementary school. In all those dreams, she and I didn’t have any interaction such as conversation and so on, but she appeared in my dreams so often at that time. In one dream where I was waiting for a bus to take an exam, she was there. In another dream where I took an airplane, she was there. I did wonder whether the Lord was saying something to me related to her. Then, one day, it suddenly dawned on me that her name in Chinese character would mean great grace. Many Korean names have Chinese characters, but while I journaled down her name, I never thought what her name in Chinese characters would mean. So, I got to realize the Lord spoke “Great Grace” to come. Interestingly enough, on the day when I got to interpret my friend as Great Grace, I listened to Neville Johnson’s teaching and I was surprised to hear him saying “Great grace will come.” And I felt Him confirm it.
On September 17th, 2020, I had a dream. I was talking to a friend on my mobile phone, wearing my earphones. While talking to him, I said to him a few times, “I can’t hear you.” In another scene, I was in a university. I went to a big hall for a lecture. Interestingly, the requirement to take the lecture was to bring earphones. I can’t recall exactly, but I think I didn’t bring my earphones. I went to the hall, and I found my friend who worked with me in Shanghai in there. She actually took another seat for me and she brought two sets of earphones, to give me one.
When I awoke, I got to realize two friends in the dream shared something in common. They are good listeners with mature characters. And in the two scenes, earphones were main and common objects. I was reminded of the sermon of a Singaporean pastor that I listened to the other day. He read Proverbs 18:13:
He who answers a matter before he hears it,
It is folly and shame to him.
I felt the Lord repeating to me the importance of listening, by showing the two friends of mine together with earphones and reminding me of their characters.
Yet I think the way the Lord speaks to us is unlimited so that we should not always interpret our dreams with formula. Sometimes, the people should be interpreted literally, but other times, their names or their characters would give us symbolic meanings and the context is also important. James W. Goll wrote in his book, Dream Language that his wife was pregnant with their third baby, Tyler and had a dream that she gave birth to a little girl named Rachel. James said to his wife that the dream was symbolic. But it turned out that his wife was right, but he was wrong in the interpretation. Their fourth baby came along and Rachel became her name.
I do not know whether you’ve ever seen me in your dreams. Or if you will see me in your future dream, I would like to suggest that you ask the Lord what He is trying to say. Is it literally me or would it mean Bliss or something else? Sounds interesting? I pray that you and I download more from the Lord and ask His wisdom and understanding in interpretation, in Jesus’ name.
Have a bliss!
And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I have had a dream, and there is no one who can interpret it. But I have heard it said of you that you can understand a dream, to interpret it.”
