The gift of prophecy interprets dreams,
while we are all lively stones set in the Church reflecting God’s glory, as one house, we remain individuals as unique and diverse as every stone is in the earth. Though, the light of the sun shines through various stones casting colors of the spectrum- Still, the sun light that shines through opals, diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and emeralds is always the same! The same goes for the Light Of The World even JESUS CHRIST! In HIM there is no variance or shadow of turning, in other words front or back He is the same and HIS promises change not! We as lively stones reflect God’s glory differently, but the source is The WORD of LIFE. This goes for prophetic interpretation as well. His WORD poured out through diverse vessels HE has made.
1Pet 2:5 You also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Three different prophets will give you the same word, wrapped in a package according to their unique cluster of prophetic giftings! In fact, their office will dictate how that interpretation is given from their vantage point, in the Kingdom of God. That is why I always say that dreams are multi-faceted. An Apostle would most likely interpret a dream from the stand point of Government, a prophet from a stand point of rooting out issues, and breaking down strongholds for new paradigms, that will accommodate reformation in ones mind, city, or nation. A teacher with the gift of prophecy would instruct in their interpretation of a dream, using that opportunity as an object lesson for deeper truths. So would the Apostle do this with people groups he is called to, sharing revelation he received on that level. While an evangelist with the gift of prophecy would some how turn it into an alter call.
This is where the spirit of wisdom comes into play. Although, an interpreter’s office may pull upon the dream interpretation, the dreamer and their personal needs, need to be kept in mind. The dream’s basic level of interpretation should be acknowledged and then built on from there. Starting with the individual, after all they were the vessel God appointed to have the vision, prophetic encounter, visitation, or dream. This is a principal sanctioned by Jesus, where the bread of his word from one loaf is parted out from the believer, and then shared with the world. Acts1:8 ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. From personal application and then to the world. After all, should we not personally apply the word of God before we take it to the nations?
An un-interpreted dream is the same as an unknown tongue. Both have hidden prophetic understanding, and should be handled the same in our meetings and gatherings.
The unwrapped wisdom of “God given dreams” is that they have the capacity of speaking volumes on every level. That is why scripture tells us to share tongues or any other enigmatic experience by two or three, and then let it be interpreted. Let the prophets stand and judge, yielding to others, if further revelation is given. A company of prophets will establish the word and guide its facets of interpretation properly, for the who, what, and where of the group. While the shepherds watch for the careful treatment of the flock, and the prophetic word’s practicle application in their flock’s midst, as a people. Often leaders will council among themselves on various ways to integrate prophetic ministry and revelation released to them through the various offices that manifested the message. The impact of that word will be backed up by the anointing behind it. That is why I always tell dreamers who share their dreams, to let elderships help them discern the interpretation that they get. For out of the mouth of two or more witnesses, or those that bear witness, let every word be established. This is the body of Christ operating in unity. Motivated by love. Preferring one another, and bearing one another’s burdens. This is how we grow.
1Corinthians 14:26-33 (The Message)
So here’s what I want you to do. When you gather for worship, each one of you be prepared with something that will be useful for all: Sing a hymn, teach a lesson, tell a story, lead a prayer, provide an insight. If prayers are offered in tongues, two or three’s the limit, and then only if someone is present who can interpret what you’re saying. Otherwise, keep it between God and yourself. And no more than two or three speakers at a meeting, with the rest of you listening and taking it to heart. Take your turn, no one person taking over. Then each speaker gets a chance to say something special from God, and you all learn from each other. If you choose to speak, you’re also responsible for how and when you speak. When we worship the right way, God doesn’t stir us up into confusion; he brings us into harmony. This goes for all the churches—no exceptions.
