Discussion for Numbers 12:6

  • Zack, ask God for the interpretation of your dream, as Joseph proclaimed, interpretation of these dreams comes from God. Ask him, He 'll tell you. God bless.
  • I had a dream in 1998 that has been left on my mind, to know an answer or if there is one? I am just asking for assistance and a meaning or to come to some understanding.
    My dream was as if I was in the time of Jesus... people shouting at me with anger and saying "we look up to you for our guidance and you have let us down, mislead us and you have lost trust"
    I ran to a stable seeking refuge from the angry mob? Not understanding what they are asking of me?
    I start to prey in my dream and ask "Dear father, why are these people asking this off me and if these people look up to me asking for guidance and I do not know why, so if they look up to me, who do I ask for guidance to help these people?
    A blue light from above covered me with warmth and a voice came to me, "my son fear not, If these people look up to you and I your father am here for your guidance, you just need to ask? by the time you awake these people shall follow you and all will be the same as it was again and no one will hate but will once again look up to you " As I started to look up and by the end of the sentence I felt a hand on my head, as soon as this hand touched my head I instantly had a feeling of love, warmth, purifying/cleansing sense of my entire body and the soul… leaving me with a sense of weightlessness which I could not explain, It felt as if I was floating this is how I felt, so light an experience that is very difficult to explain.
    I woke up with tears running down my face and actually awake, but knew there is something wrong because I felt as if I was levitating in air, feeling so light (I wasn't) this is how I just felt and a sense of so much love in my soul and as if my whole soul had been cleansed.
    I got up and it still felt as if I am floating in the air? I am walking but cannot really feel the floor. This went on for 15 minutes, where it felt like I was floating…
    I walked into the lounge and explained my dream to my wife and tears were streaming down my face for no reason? With goose bumps and trembling over my whole body, but still having the feeling of god’s love and blessing over me for the whole hour, this feeling is not the easiest experience to explain or if it can be explained.
    I have really kept this to myself for 13 years and thought I would try getting some answers / guide or if anyone else has had a similar experience. Please I am not asking for anything else or proclaiming anything just a word of guidance? I thank you.
