SPIRITUAL PURPOSE OF DREAMS

Dreams are one of the most overlooked forms of communication used by God. The Word of God consistently reveals God as speaking to people through this universally experienced and mysterious phenomenon.

The Lord uses dreams for a variety of purposes:

1. To warn global leaders of future events. (Gen 41:1-8)
One night two years later, Pharaoh dreamed that he was standing on the bank of the Nile River, when suddenly, seven sleek, fat cows came up out of the river and began grazing in the grass. Then seven other cows came up from the river, but they were very skinny and all their ribs stood out. They went over and stood beside the fat cows. Then the skinny cows ate the fat ones! At which point, Pharaoh woke up!
Soon he fell asleep again and had a second dream. This time he saw seven heads of grain on one stalk, with every kernel well formed and plump. Then, suddenly, seven more heads appeared on the stalk, but these were shriveled and withered by the east wind. And these thin heads swallowed up the seven plump, well-formed heads! Then Pharaoh woke up again and realized it was all a dream. Next morning, as he thought about it, he became very concerned as to what the dreams might mean; he called for all the magicians and sages of Egypt and told them about it, but not one of them could suggest what his dreams meant. - Gen 41:1-8 (TLB)

2. To provide revelation to His prophets (Num 12:6).
And the Lord said to them, “Even with a prophet, I would communicate by visions and dreams; - Num 12:6 (TLB)
3. To warn us against certain decisions. (Matt 27:17-19)
17 and as the crowds gathered before Pilate’s house that morning he asked them, “Which shall I release to you—Barabbas, or Jesus your Messiah?”[a] 18 For he knew very well that the Jewish leaders had arrested Jesus out of envy because of his popularity with the people.
19 Just then, as he was presiding over the court, Pilate’s wife sent him this message: “Leave that good man alone; for I had a terrible nightmare concerning him last night.” - Matt 27:17-19 (TLB)
4. To reveal His divine destiny for our lives. (Gen 37:5-8)
One night Joseph had a dream and promptly reported the details to his brothers, causing even deeper hatred.
“Listen to this,” he proudly announced. “We were out in the field binding sheaves, and my sheaf stood up, and your sheaves all gathered around it and bowed low before it!”
“So you want to be our king, do you?” his brothers derided. And they hated him both for the dream and for his cocky attitude.-     Gen 37:5-8 (TLB) 
5. To answer our recent petitions and prayers. (1 Kings 3:5-15)
The Lord appeared to him in a dream that night and told him to ask for anything he wanted, and it would be given to him!
Solomon replied, “You were wonderfully kind to my father David because he was honest and true and faithful to you, and obeyed your commands. And you have continued your kindness to him by giving him a son to succeed him. O Lord my God, now you have made me the king instead of my father David, but I am as a little child who doesn’t know his way around. And here I am among your own chosen people, a nation so great that there are almost too many people to count! Give me an understanding mind so that I can govern your people well and know the difference between what is right and what is wrong. For who by himself is able to carry such a heavy responsibility?”
10 The Lord was pleased with his reply and was glad that Solomon had asked for wisdom. 11 So he replied, “Because you have asked for wisdom in governing my people and haven’t asked for a long life, or riches for yourself, or the defeat of your enemies— 12 yes, I’ll give you what you asked for! I will give you a wiser mind than anyone else has ever had or ever will have! 13 And I will also give you what you didn’t ask for—riches and honor! And no one in all the world will be as rich and famous as you for the rest of your life! 14 And I will give you a long life if you follow me and obey my laws as your father David did.”
15 Then Solomon woke up and realized it had been a dream. He returned to Jerusalem and went into the Tabernacle. And as he stood before the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord, he sacrificed burnt offerings and peace offerings. Then he invited all of his officials to a great banquet. - 1 Kings 3:5-15 (TLB)
So, Indeed God speaks once, or twice, yet no one notices it -- in a dream, a vision of the night. When sound sleep falls on men, while they slumber in their beds. Then He opens the ears of men and seals their instruction. (Job 33:14-16).
