I have done thorough studies of dreams, visions and the symbolism found in the Bible. Once we understand God’s hidden symbolic language, an entirely new world opens up for us. We will not only see messages in the dreams that we have at night, we will also be able to hear God speaking to us in an unlimited number of ways—through television, in the movies, street signs, names and even numbers.
The key to understanding dreams is using a combination of symbolic understanding and the ability to hear God’s voice.
When interpreting dreams, I put less emphasis on the meaning of numbers than I used to do when I first started out. One of the reasons for this is that there are so many conflicting dream symbol meanings for numbers. I believe that God gives us revelation into the meaning of symbols, but we have to be careful that we are not applying them globally to every single dream we have.
My wife and I pay attention to repeating numbers all the time. Eleven can represent transition and when we see it, we know that we are about to transition into an entirely new season of our lives. Maybe you see numbers line up on the clock like 2:22, 3:33, etc. It could be the meaning of the actual number or symbolic that things are about to line up for you. The only way to know for sure is to record it, watch for it and ask God for confirmation.
Although numbers in dreams are important, they are more useful in the application than the interpretation. If you can take out any symbol of the dream and the dream does not change, then it is best not to focus on it.
I have listed some very basic meanings of numbers as a starting point.
Take a look at any corresponding Bible verses for numbers you have in your dreams. For example, if you see the number 24 you might want to take a look at several chapter 24’s in the Bible. I recommend doing an Internet search as well. Also, you can find out more about dream interpretation training and books by CLICKING HERE.
P.S. Do you ever wake up in the morning with the thought of a dream you had just had? Was it something confusing? Perhaps it was something weird. It very well could have been a message from God—and I would like to help you understand what God is telling you through your dreams.
