All revelation comes from the Holy Spirit, who searches the deep things of God. He chooses how He will give the revelation to us. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of peace, and when He comes, a residue of peace is left with us.

God uses metaphors and symbols in our dreams. He is a visual, creative entity, and He loves to wrap His wisdom in the mysteries of our language and culture. When we interpret a dream, we need to approach the metaphors in a dream from different points of view. Why did God choose to use this symbol? Why not another?

God is purposeful in everything He does. As you interpret more dreams, you will begin to see patterns in how God uses certain symbols in your dreams.

People Are Wanting Truth 
When I am in a situation with non-Christians, I ask God to show me if they are open to His Spirit or not. If they tell me a dream, that's a good sign they are indeed open to spiritual things.

The moment you open your heart to the possibility that God speaks through dreams, you will discover that many people near and dear to you have dreams and want an interpretation. As you begin to embrace the ways God speaks to you, He will speak to you even more.

I have interpreted more than 40,000 dreams in my life—from Christians and non-Christians. Not all were from God. Many were soul dreams, and some I've encountered were impossible to interpret.

I'm still learning every day about how God communicates this way and how dreams can be used prophetically to evangelize the lost. Compared to where God wants to take us in His Spirit, we're all little children. We have much to learn.

This is the hour for prophetic evangelism—for the light of God to shine on people who have waited for years for a resolution in their lives. This is a moment in history in which Christians can make a massive difference—one person and one dream at a time.

As Paul wrote, "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for those who love Him" (1 Cor. 2:9). We are standing on the threshold of a new spiritual awakening.

I believe God is getting ready to unleash a powerful wave of prophetic evangelism, larger than any of us have ever dreamed. And with it will come a harvest that is unprecedented in church history.
