The Vista of Prophetic Dreams and Visions. One aspect of the biblical gift of prophecy and interpretation, is the ability to interpret dreams and visions, given to the dreamer by the Spirit of God.
When requesting dream interpretation (from NeWine Pouring) you are requesting ministry of the biblical gift of prophecy and interpret ion that gives testimony to the Lord Jesus Christ. The prophet’s anointing is bestowed upon vessels of clay, subject to imperfections, that is why all prophecy must be examined in light of the Word of God. The scripture teaches us that when giving a word of prophecy we should do it in such away other prophets can judge whether it is from God. In this email format, where dreams are sent in, it is the recipients responsibility to share the interpretation with trusted biblical counsel for confirmation and further ministry. However, it is imperative that when we do that we seek out God’s servants that have ears to hear, what the Spirit is saying when He speaks.
Joel 2:28-29 “And it shall come to pass afterward
That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.
And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
If when hearing the interpretation of dreams, or visions, you do not feel a witness from the Holy Spirit (who is the spirit of truth that leads us, and guides us into all truth) then you should take the word to prayer for more understanding and to other prophets that they might “stand and judge”. An elder in The Lord, or believer that can pray with you, for the word of God tells us out of the mouth of two or more witnesses let every word be established.
A known and trusted prophet of the house of God, can be a witness, that agrees with the Holy Spirit who rises up with in the believer, upon the Word of truth. When this happens you will immediately know God is speaking to you, who always provides more than one source to establish the prophetic word, or dream interpretation. Sometimes, under error, or oppression, we are unable to discern the Lord’s voice; in this case, always seek help from your family of believers, and leadership to pray, help, and counsel you to “hear from God”.
Spiritual ministry is meant to be done as a group effort, and should never be exclusionary of other giftings of the body of Christ, this keeps us on track for the scripture says, “For lack of guidance a nations falls, but victory is won through many advisers” Dream interpretation and prophetic words given out of the ministry of Deana Barnes is done so with-in this biblical paradigm in mind; therefore, we urge those who receive ministry to seek confirmation from God with-in their church family, personal prayer, and bible studies.
