Topic: Secondary Dreams [Teens Open Heavens 29, May 2018]

Memorise: And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, the dream of Pharaoh is one: God hath shewed Pharaoh what He is about to do. Genesis 41:25

Read: Matthew 2:19-21 (KJV)

19 But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,

20 Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child’s life.

21 And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and came into the land of Israel.

Bible In One Year: 1 Chronicles 26-27, John 11:18-46


God has a purpose for every dream He gives. There are basic, secondary and ultimate reasons for dreams. The basic reason for dreams could be to tell you what is about to happen. Also it could be to warn His people of impending danger. Unfortunately, God’s purpose for giving certain dreams may be frustrated. This is because recipients hardly take them seriously or don’t believe in dreams at all. Some do not even bother to seek for clarity of coded dreams.
Another basic reason for dreams could be to communicate with those who cannot hear God audibly. God uses dreams to communicate with a number of people who are not inclined to hearing Him speak to them audibly. God could also give a man a dream on behalf of someone else to warn, encourage, pray for or strengthen that person. How have you been handling your dreams? Ask God to grant you understanding of your dreams.

Prayer Point: Lord I ask that you speak to me more often.

Hymn 16
1. Christian, seek not yet repose,
Hear thy gracious Savior say;
Thou art in the midst of foes:
Watch and pray.

2. Principalities and power,
Mustering their unseen array,
Wait for the unguarded hours:
Watch and pray.

3. Gird the heavenly armor on,
Wear it ever night and day;
Ambushed lies the evil one:
Watch and pray.

4. Hear the victors who o’ercame,
Still they mark each warriors’s way;
All with one sweet voice exclaim,
Watch and pray.

5. Hear, above all, hear thy Lord,
Him thou lovest to obey;
Hide within thy heart His word:
Watch and pray.

6. Watch, as if on that alone
Hung the issue of the day;
Pray, that help may be sent down:
Watch and pray.
