Are you kidding me?
“We both had dreams,” they answered, “but there is no one to interpret them.” Then Joseph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell me your dreams.”

Dreams can be funny things. I would not put a lot of weight behind their meaning. Especially if you are wallowing in sin. An unrepentant mind is subject to some very wicked imaginations.

No. Job 33 (Amplified Bible)
14For God [does reveal His will; He] speaks not only once, but more than once, even though men do not regard it [including you, Job].
15[One may hear God’s voice] in a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men while slumbering upon the bed,
16Then He opens the ears of men and seals their instruction [terrifying them with warnings],

Well,supposedly an angel spoke to Joseph in a dream.

Isn’t it odd that so many Christians believe differently?

Do you believe dreams have a significant meaning or just your subconscious?
Also, if you have ever had a dream come true post it. Thank you for any time.

It is only since the so called ‘Age of Enlightenment’ that dreams have been relegated to the realm of froth and bubbles. Freud showed that dreams are significant, that they can unearth our innermost truths.
Long before Freud, dreams were thought to be messages from God and that is why the interpreters were called dream DIVINErs. Today there is an awakening to the dream’s ability to see the future.
However people can only see this fact when one of their dreams comes true literally, as they have dreamt it. Yet all dreams come true, but most of them materialise in a way that is hidden to the dreamer’s understanding. This is why we have dream diviners. It needs a deep understanding of the dream language to see all dreams come true.
The dream speaks mainly in metaphors, in allegories, in parables, in likenesses. But we do that in waking too. We use thousands of metaphors and everybody understands them at once. If I say to you: “Today I am on Cloud Nine!” you will know at once what I mean. But when I tell you that I dreamt that I was floating on a cloud in my dream you will say: “That’s really weird.”
It is not weird because it simply means what we mean by ‘Cloud Nine’ when we are awake and speak the metaphor instead of experience it.
Go through as many metaphors as you can think of and then draw them on paper. After that show them to someone. Ask them to tell you what you meant to say with these drawings. For instance you might draw yourself riding on a cloud. See what kind of answers you’ll get. Will they say: “You are feeling high?” or will they say: “You are riding a cloud?”
Dream interpretation is all about reading and understanding METAPHORS, FIGURES OF SPEECH! Listen to the word FIGURES!
By the way I see every dream I care to analyse come true. Often it takes time, days, weeks, months, even years for them to materialise and verify the interpretation. But there are always parts of a dream that come true on the day after you had your dream.
When you recall a dream suddenly and unexpectedly you stop and compare what you see in real life with the dream that was recalled. That’s how you learn the dream language for life is its living dictionary!
Have you ever had a déjà vu? If you did, you saw a dream come true since what you saw in waking had happened in a dream before.
Incidentally what psychology calls ‘the subconscious’ is nothing more mysterious than your dream memory!
