Discerning False Dreams
Hello friends! If you have been keeping up with the posts, then you know that I recently discovered that the Bride of Christ is one person who is currently walking the Earth right now. However, during my researching of this topic, I discovered that there were MANY women online who believed that they were a part of the "collective" Bride of Christ. Most of those who believed that they were the Bride, said that they came to this revelation through a dream that was given to them. And upon seeing that, I went to the Lord with it and He showed me that those women were given false dreams and they couldn't discern that they were false (or even asked if it was false in some cases). So because of that, I wanted to shed some light on how to discern if you have been given a false dream. The devil attacks us in any way that he can, and he does send us false information through our dreams as well. This will be especially the case if you are a prophetic dreamer like me, (gang gang sis if you are too lol) so discernment in this area is CRUCIAL.
I feel like many people believe that every dream with religious elements in it means that it's from God, and I can tell you from experience that it's not. Not every dream that has biblical/spiritual elements is from God. Not every dream that even has "Jesus" in it is from God. I have had MANY a dream where my dream wanted me to recognize someone as being Jesus, but they were not THE King Jesus. And to put this concept into perspective for better understanding, when you have a dream about a friend or relative, you are aware that the dream wants you to recognize that this person is your friend or relative. But when you wake up you know for a fact that you have NOT ACTUALLY been speaking to your friend or relative, because it was not actually happening. MANY false dreams will have elements in it to try to convince you that it was from God when it was NOT. And to put into perspective the depths that the Devil is willing to go to deceive you in a dream, I have had false dreams that included: dead relatives, angels, choirs, gospel music, prophets, pastors, and even "Jesus" in them to try to convince me that a message within a dream was true. So I cannot stress to you enough how important it is to have discernment and to ask God yourself for confirmation on things. Because these demons are crafty. Demons are aware of Jewish culture. Demons know the scriptures and WILL use them against you to try to get you to sin or be deceived. Demons can even tell you things that are truthful, that you yourself don't know, in order to try to convince you that *everything* that they are telling you is truthful. Demons will tell you the truth sometimes to ultimately try to get you to believe a lie (re: Matt 4:5-7). They are VERY intelligent beings and know how to deceive people who are not aware of these truths. Do not sleep (no pun intended) on these demons! False dreams are very real and will mess you up if you put too much stock into false information. Sometimes a dream is SIMPLY a dream. And the reason it has biblical elements in it is because you are immersed in Christian culture and your brain draws from that tank at night because it is your life. Not every religious looking dream is a message from God. Sometimes it's really just a dream.
Another thing to look out for is false elements in a true dream. Sometimes God sends us dreams, but as we mature in the faith and in our relationship with Him, He tests us by allowing false elements in a dream in order to increase our discernment. I have had many dreams where there were some parts that were true and other parts that were false. And I had to decipher which parts I had to keep and which parts I had to reject. Many of the dreams I receive from God are really practical in nature, so for the most part this is easy for me to figure out, because it just involves knowing God's character. But if you have dreams that are loaded in symbolism and metaphors, then you really need to stay prayed up in order to assess what God is telling you in the dream.
The last thing I wanted to touch on was why these women in particular are being given false dreams about this topic specifically. The bible says that as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. So essentially, that means if you believe something enough, then you become that thing. So because many women want to be Jesus's bride they become so consumed with the thought of it that they start to have dreams about it and tap into the prophecy spiritually. And because the Bride of Christ is a real person with a real prophetic destiny, they can receive dreams about her that are true events, but because they want to be her, the dream puts them in her position. And if you think this can't happen I can tell you from personal experience that it can. (Not in terms of dreaming of the Bride of Christ) but I used to have dreams about the 144 thousand because at one point in my life I believed that I was a part of that group. I even received a waking vision about it when I had never received a vision before! So because of that I was certain that I was a part of this group, but I was certainly incorrect lol and I later found out that I wasn't. The dreams/visions that I received about them were true because these people actually exist, however, the perspective of me being one of them was incorrect. So yes, believing something enough can make you gain spiritual information about the topic. And after I realized that I wasn't in the 144 thousand, I stopped receiving the dreams because I was no longer tapping into that in my spirit.
So yes my friends, false dreams and visions are VERY REAL. And the human mind is so powerful that we can tap into spiritual prophecies that aren't ours just off the strength of pure belief alone. So that's amazingly cool of us, but we must make sure that we are grounded in truth before we believe anything, and always and forever, go to God for confirmation for everything!!!!
Their visions are false, and their predictions are lies. They claim that they are speaking my message, but I have not sent them. Yet they expect their words to come true! I tell them: Those visions you see are false, and the predictions you make are lies. You say that they are my words, but I haven't spoken to you!”
Ezekiel 13:6-7 GNTD
I know what those prophets have said who speak lies in my name and claim that I have given them my messages in their dreams. The prophet who has had a dream should say it is only a dream, but the prophet who has heard my message should proclaim that message faithfully. What good is straw compared with wheat? Listen to what I, the Lord, say! I am against the prophets who tell their dreams that are full of lies. They tell these dreams and lead my people astray with their lies and their boasting. I did not send them or order them to go, and they are of no help at all to the people. I, the Lord, have spoken.”
Jeremiah 23:25, 28, 32 GNTD
Well, no wonder! Even Satan can disguise himself to look like an angel of light!
2 Corinthians 11:14 GNTD
This man will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles. He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them. So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies. Then they will be condemned for enjoying evil rather than believing the truth.
