NEW: David and Deana discuss a dream that has had a profound impact on their life, and is warning others in this podcast: Tossing A Rattler.
Clothing, dreams, and the prophetic.
We have clothing we wear for work, business, and play. Think about it, what we have on is what we are ready for, or what we are not ready for! Our dreams reveal hidden conditions of our soul we need to pay attention to. Listen to:
Featured Article: Black clothes in dreams.
The following excerpt is from a real dream. I cover some of its interpretation in the following article while addressing color, and the importance of what we are wearing in prophetic dreams or visions. If we can remember color, and clothing, when we wake up from our dreams then they have significance. Sometimes, as dreams are, unusual occurrences take place that may seem silly. But, if the dream has merit, as this one most certainly does, then we need to look at the unusual symbolism, and decode them because they occur for a reason. The entirety of this dream and its interpretation is found under What Interpreted Dreams Look Like, in the header above.
Dream: “…He saw himself dressed in all black sitting on a boulder. It was all black around him … a ball of lint laying beside him spoke to him saying, “Jesus wants to talk to you, stay where you are,” He had his back to the lord. he feels comfort flowing threw his body & knows it is Jesus who wants to talk to him.” (This dreamer is always wearing black in his dreams, of late.)
Listen to a teaching on :
The color of clothing and their type is detail that should always be written down when we are journaling our dreams.
What we are dressed in is subject to change, depending on what we are doing and the seasons we are in. What we are wearing changes only when we decide to change our clothes. If we want we can wear shorts in the winter, or a coat in the summer; but, we make choices that best suites us and/ or is reflective of our environment, this includes what we are doing, as well. (Working in the garden, going to a party; attending a funeral, or wedding.) The colors in the back drop of a dream is often representative of mood. What we are wearing reflects an emotional or spiritual condition that details more prophetic understanding regarding our occupation, our social interactions, our rest, and recreation.
Earth, water, soil, vegetation and the sun all reflect colors that are representative of their elements. Browns are earthy and speak matters that tend to be earthy. Adam was made of the dust of the ground. It speaks of the flesh, or of those things that are of the flesh. A dirt road is our natural walk in this earth, brown clothes, often the same. Blue is representative of the sky, and is more heavenly, etc.
The Color Black
Often, when people see themselves or someone else wearing black it represents sorrow, mourning, heaviness, famine, lack, or sin. What the person is doing in the dream gives context to the mood, and their emotional condition. The key is that clothing can be taken off and replaced with another wardrobe, therefore their condition is subject to change. It takes intent and the will to change. Sin, sickness, sorrow, famine, and disease are all remedied by seeking the one who is our life. Jesus died that we might live, He was beaten with many stripes that we may be healed. Thirst and famine of soul and body is remedied through Him. Jesus feeds our soul He is the bread of life, the Father provides for His sons and His daughters. Doubt, fear, and unbelief; even a famine of the Word of God, clothes us in lack. This is depicted in black. We can put off all of these things by pressing on in CHRIST. When we are wearing black in our dreams our garment, normally, is in need of change.
If we do not trust the Lord in everything, if we see our condition as lacking, then we tend to turn away from God, we need to believe in the full work of the cross, that all our short comings are truly washed by the blood. With out faith it is impossible to please God. Still, in our place where we fall short he speaks to us, in our doubts, fears, and troubled hearts. While we were yet sinners Christ died for us, how much more in this life time will HE reach out to us, in our need for Him. Even when our back is turned away from HIS best for us, he desires to minister love and comfort. The Lord desires to show HIS more perfect way in all matters concerning the man or woman who knows he/she needs God.
A broken and contrite heart, oh lord, thou will not despise.
The Lord wants all of us to have faith in a clear conscience and stand up in our authority in CHRIST pushing back the circumstances that often overwhelm us. We begin doing that by putting on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. This an act of our will, and choice. Simply, we can say that as a decree out loud. “I put on the garment of praise, I will dress my self in joy. Who’s report will I believe regarding my future? I will believe in the report of the Lord. Though there be Giants in the land of my promise, the son of David has slain them.
Isaiah 52: Wake up, wake up, O Zion! Clothe yourself with strength. Put on your beautiful clothes, O holy city of Jerusalem, for unclean and godless people will enter your gates no longer.
The clothing we wear in our dreams are what we we have dressed ourselves with.
The garment of praise (made to replace the spirit of mourning, sorrow, heaviness, sin awareness, famine) is so powerful even the lint … (the dust remnants of that garment) is able to speak to us encouragement and instruction. Calling us to return to the joy of our salvation, a voice bringing hope in our sorrows.
Isaiah 61:3: to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
Black as famine (Jeremiah 14:1 – 2, Lamentations 5:10), mourning and sorrow (Job 30:28, 30, Jeremiah 8:21, 14:2), lack of revelation (spiritual light) from God (Micah 3:6). (Jude 13) meaning blocked from light.
