A Guide to Understanding and Interpreting Dreams
“The Ultimate Guide to Understanding the Dreams You Dream” is written to carefully guide the reader through the complex world of dreams. Author Ira Milligan maintains that in these end times God uses dreams to:
- Encourage and direct Christians in their walk with Him – Getting direction
- Warn sinners to repent
- Provide guidance to the Church
- Reveal divine information and knowledge
The subtitle of the book “Biblical Keys for Hearing God’s Voice in the Night” suggests that the reader should consider the importance of recognizing the difference between a dream and a “night vision.” Milligan also suggests that reader began a dream journal as the first step in learning to interpret your dreams.
The book is divided into two parts: Part One helps the reader understand the common use of the dream in God’s communication with His people. This includes insights into interpreting symbols, understanding Bible numerology, and finding answers through colors. Milligan also discusses how all the creatures of creation, modes of transportation, and metals play a part in dream interpretation. I found the chapters that included rules to follow, and answers to frequently asked questions especially interesting and helpful.
Part Two provides a comprehensive Key Word Dictionary of Dream Symbols with Scriptural Illustrations. This section is a very practical tool for reference, research, and application.
“The Ultimate Guide to Understanding the Dreams You Dream” is an authoritative guide book for individual Christians, those involved in Inner Healing and Spiritual Warfare ministries, as well as for clergy and lay ministers.
