My dream this morning

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)

Dream: Always a bridesmaid, never a bride

Last night I had vivid, colorful dreams. I love dreams and think they’re fascinating.

Sometimes dreams are just images or thoughts relating to past or present circumstances.

Sometimes they are just “pizza dreams.”

Dreams also can be a way for God to speak to us, as He did to Jacob about the angels on the ladder (Genesis 28: 12-13), Joseph about Pharoah’s dreams (Genesis 37), a man in Gideon’s army about Israel defeating the Midianites (Judges 7), and Joseph the stepfather of Jesus being warned to take Mary and the baby to safety (Matthew 2).

I believe my dream last night was from God. In the dream, I opened a door and there was a private wedding in the room, with the officiating minister, the groom and the bride, and just a few attendants. The groom and the bride were saying their vows. The bridesmaid was watching the bride sadly.

I then went over to the bridesmaid and spoke to her: “Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.”

I told her this is how she had always felt, but God wanted her to know that she would be married soon, that her Groom was coming.

I believe this dream is prophetic and symbolically means that our Groom, Jesus, is returning soon and to be ready, waiting for Him.

I also believe the dream represents how many people feel. Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.

Always watching from the sidelines.

Alone. Lonely. Not fitting in. Rejected. Hurting. Aching. Longing. Dreaming.

But God wants you to know you are not alone. He loves you so much. He has great plans for you. (Jeremiah 29:11)

You are His Beautiful Bride, the one He has chosen to be with Him forever.

All you have to do is say “Yes” to Him.

“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10: 9, NLT
