I don’t usually tell my dreams publicly to people. But I had a dream earlier this morning that I believe was from God for me and others. Here is the dream and what I believe is the interpretation.
Dream: There was a banquet for supper. The hour was late, about 9 p.m. I was welcoming people as they came in, pointing them to another room where they could get the appetizers and wine. One man asked where the room was and I gave him directions. I was telling the guests we were about to start the banquet and to get ready. My grandmother Gentry was sitting at the head of the table. She was thanking me and giving me credit for helping so much with preparing the feast. I was humbled, not wanting to call attention to myself. Everyone was excited and couldn’t wait to eat and was hungry.
Interpretation: God has prepared a wedding feast for His people–the marriage supper of the Lamb. (Revelation 19:6-9, ESV). The hour is late; Jesus is about to come.
Numbers have spiritual meanings. The number 9 is symbollic of divine completeness, finality and judgment; Christ died at the 9th hour of the day to make the way of salvation open to everyone. There were 9 people stoned, 9 special widows, and 9 people afflicted with blindness in the Bible. There were 9 judgments of God. (Haggai 1:11)
There are 9 fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) begins at sunset on the 9th day of the 7th Hebrew month. The number 9 relates to prayer and intercession -Peter and John went to the temple at the hour of prayer being the 9th hour (Acts 3:1). Cornelius was fasting and at the 9th hour, he prayed and had a vision (Acts 10:30)
I believe the room with the appetizers and wine represents that God has “appetizers” and wine for us to enjoy- the wine of the Spirit. (Ephesians 5:18)
The man asking for directions to the room represents people who are lost. We need to share about Jesus with others, giving them directions. We need to tell others about being filled with the Holy Spirit.
My grandmother Gentry in real life was a very good, loving, wise person. I believe she personifies Wisdom and God’s love in the dream. (Proverbs 1:20)
My grandmother giving me credit and thanking me for my help before the banquet represents that God sees all you are doing, all your labor of love for Him. He will give you credit and reward you. (Ephesians 6:8)
Everyone at the banquet being hungry represents the hunger of people today for God. Share with them God’s good word and about Jesus. (John 4:32)
