Can God still communicate to people through dreams today? Some would argue no, saying that since we have the complete Word of God, we have no need for dreams. I disagree; for scripture will be present during the end times and God has specifically told us that He will use dreams to communicate to His children during that time.

But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams…And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come. (Acts 2:16–20)

So the argument that God will not communicate to us via dreams because we have scripture is not valid. I assert that God in the past, today, and in the future can and will at times communicate to us in dreams. The Bible records that many people, both saved and unsaved in the Old Testament and New, have had dreams in which God was trying to communicate to them. Pharaoh, the baker, the butler, Joseph, Nebuchadnezzar, Peter, all had dreams. So I guess if a sinner like the pharaoh's baker could have a dream from God so can I. By way of caution, let me also say that no dream from God will contradict scripture, nor do we ever derive doctrine from dreams.


  1. To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be his holy people, together with ALL THOSE EVERYWHERE who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ - their Lord and ours: (1 Cor 1:2)

    Therefore you DO NOT LACK any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Cor 1:7-8)

    I think Paul's statements above are universal and timeless in scope applying to all believers in all times. It is clear to me that he saw the gifts as existing and not ceasing - to be used and not neglected - up until the return of Christ at his Second Coming.

  2. Yes, Amen! Great post William and thank you for boldy proclaiming the truth.
