The last time I shared a dream on my blog was in December 2007. I don’t dream on a regular basis and even when I do most times I cannot recall it when my eyes open. And of those few I do remember, I generally dont share with anyone simply because I tend not put much stock in dreams.
But on last night
I dreamed that I had bought a new pair of shoes. I was on my way to work and decided that I wanted to wear the new shoes so I pulled my car into an empty parking lot, got out and took off one shoe, put a new one on and began lacing it up. (In real life, I always take off both shoes before putting on others, but this time different.) While I was lacing up the shoe, an older man drove up and parked behind my car. He got out and walked by me. While he was walking by, he said something to me briefly. (I dont recall what it was). But something about the tone of his voice made me unsettled. It was a nervous fear in his voice. I immediately told him I was late for work, got in my car and attempted to leave. He jumped in his car, sped ahead of me and blocked the exit with his car. I dont know how, but I could hear him say “I’m not going to let you leave”. I accelerated and turned my lights on as I intended to ram his car and forcibly leave. When I got close to what was sure to be a collision, I woke. But two things I noted: (1) when my car got close, I saw that same nervous fear in his eyes and (2) although this occured within the span of 2-3 minutes in the dream, it went from day to night in the same time frame.
Im not placing any significance on the dream, but it weighed on my mind to the point I couldnt go back to sleep. I know that some in the Body, like Daniel and Joesph, are gifted in interpretation of dreams. If, after reading this you feel the Lord has given you insight or if you feel it is simply a dream with no meaning whatsoever, I’d like to hear your thoughts or interpretation, pro or con.
Additional question (if you’d like to comment): Are all dreams tied to prophecy in the sense that some prophecy is “forthtelling (general)” and some is “foretelling(specific)”? Thus, a dream can also be both foretelling or forthtelling?
