I was just typing various keywords about dreams..and stuff on google. So, here i found ur website. Certainly interesting what you have to say about various spiritual stuff.

Well, i was just wondering..about your dream interpretation service. Is it a free service or payed one??

Cuz, I had this dream early in the morning a few days ago. Man, i just cant seem to forget it, and it is still quite vivid in my memory. The dream is quite weird too.

This is what i dreamt:

I was playing with my male friends in an open ground. It was almost evening near dark. I think I was playing some kinda sport, not sure which one. But, for sure we were playing with a baseball, maybe throwing at! each other. It was an open ground, with whole bunch of trees and grass a little further away from where we were playing. After a while, suddenly one of us threw the ball a little further away near those trees. It was kinda far., so everybody stood still for a moment to see who was gonna go and get the ball.

Out of all of a sudden, the ball which fell near the trees came back racing towards us, rolling on the ground. Everybody was shocked! We were alarmed at how that ball came to us. So, everybody including me ran towards the trees to see if anybody is there who threw the ball to us. Nobody was there!. hehe. Even I was quite surprised.

After a few moments, as i looking towards the ground we were playing from the trees, suddenly, I saw a ghostly figure of a man walking in front of us towards the ground we were playing. [I can tell you, for sure.. it wasn't a solid figure. But, quite ghostly, like in the movies. U know like an! apparition. Not solid.] I screamed and alerted everybody of what I saw, and as I was still seeing that ghoslty figure departing away from us, nobody in my group was able to see that man, except me. I was the only one who was able to see him. At this point, I pretty much knew that Ghostly figure of a man threw the ball to us.

Then after a while, I ran to a different ground which is kinda beside the ground we were playing. And i saw hundreds of Ghostly figures of many people walking/running on the ground. They were all looking like ghosts. I joined them and kinda looked like as though I was walking along with them.

I guess, while I was doing this, my friends were looking at me. But, nobody was able to see those ghostly figures of people. I knew that. As i was walking with them.

Hmm, why the heck is this dream of mine doesn't seem to fade away out of my memory? :)

Can you please help me out here?

Thanks

INTERPRETATION

Hello,

I was just typing various keywords about dreams..and stuff on google. So, here i found ur website. Certainly interesting what you have to say about various spiritual stuff.

Well, i was just wondering..about your dream interpretation service. Is it a free service or payed one??

[Pastor Vitale Says] There is no charge. You may send a free-will offering if you like

Cuz, I had this dream early in the morning a few days ago. Man, i just cant seem to forget it, and it is still quite vivid in my memory. The dream is quite weird too.

This is what i dreamt:

I was playing

[Pastor Vitale Says] The word "play," scripturally speaking, can mean "war games":

2 Sam 2:14-17,

14 And Abner said to Joab, Let the young men now arise, and play before us. And Joab said, Let them arise.

15 Then there arose and went over by number twelve of Benjamin, which pertained to Ish-bosheth the son of Saul, and twelve of the servants of David.

16 And they caught every one his fellow by the head, and thrust his sword in his fellow's side; so they fell down together: wherefore that place was called Helkath-hazzurim, which is in Gibeon.

17 And there was a very sore battle that day; and Abner was beaten, and the men of Israel, before the servants of David.

KJV

with my male friends

[Pastor Vitale Says]  The term "male friends" is significant because there are a female and a male spirituality. This term in the context of your dream would indicate that you were engaging in a spiritually-male (mature) level of spiritual warfare.

Jesus is our friend, and everyone who manifests the nature of Christ Jesus is our friend.

The term "friends" in the context of your dream would mean that you are engaging in the spiritual warfare that Christ Jesus wages against the Carnal Mind of mortal men:

Rom 8:7-8

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.KJV

in an open ground.

[Pastor Vitale Says] I am not sure what this means, but the scriptural significance of "an open place," a similar term, is to expand one's borders so as to receive from, or be fed by God.

It was almost evening near dark.

[Pastor Vitale Says] this phrase signifies what is called spiritual "twilight." It describes a spiritual level of consciousness. You're in the process of migrating from the darkness of your Carnal Mind into the light of the mind of Christ.

Acts 26:18

18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.KJV

I think I was playing some kinda sport, not sure which one. But, for sure we were playing with a baseball, maybe throwing at! each other.

[Pastor Vitale Says] it is not commonly understood by most Christians today, but by and large the church is playing games. Mature Christianity is a lifestyle that wages a continuous warfare against the powers and principalities that rule over this world, in defense of both physical and spiritual widows and orphans. Every personality that is not married to the Lord Jesus is a spiritual widow, and the unquickened spiritual potential within everyone (called "Abel") to be a son of God, is a spiritual orphan:

Rom 8:15

15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.KJV

 It was an open ground, with whole bunch of trees

[Pastor Vitale Says] "Trees" signify Christ maturing in many individuals (Christ Jesus, Himself, is the undivided tree of life)

Ezek 31:5

5 Therefore [Adam’s] height was exalted above all the trees of the field, and his boughs were multiplied, and his branches became long because of the multitude of waters, when he shot forth. KJV

 and grass

[Pastor Vitale Says] "Grass," signifies Adam in his fallen condition, as mortal man:

Ps 103:15-16

15 As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.

16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.KJV

a little further away from where we were playing. After a while, suddenly one of us threw the ball a little further away near those trees. It was kinda far., so everybody stood still for a moment to see who was gonna go and get the ball.

[Pastor Vitale Says] As I said above, the "playing" of this sport signifies spiritual war games, the immature level upon which you hves been dealing with Satan, and the powers and principalities of this world

Out of all of a sudden, the ball which fell near the trees came back racing towards us, rolling on the ground. Everybody was shocked! We were alarmed at how that ball came to us. So, everybody including me ran towards the trees to see if anybody is there who threw the ball to us. Nobody was there!. hehe. Even I was quite surprised.

[Pastor Vitale Says] at this time, the Church perceives Satan and the powers and principalities that rule in this world apart from themselves. However, the spiritual truth is that Satan is the unconscious part of the Carnal Mind of mortal man. Most Christians know that the Scripture teaches that we have an enemy, but few know that that enemy is our own Carnal Mind, which is a part of our "old Man."

Christ Jesus, our "new man," is given to us to defeat the motives and thoughts of our old man, which bring destruction into our lives. The Church is call to "put on Christ,"

Gal 3:27

27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. KJV

[Pastor Vitale Says] . . . But does not understand that in order to do this we must look at the depth of the inherited sin that exists in the unconscious part of our Carnal Mind, war against it and overcome it.

The ball being thrown back from the trees (which signify Christ Jesus within fallen Adam) suggests that the Lord is telling the Church (and specifically to you), that it is time to start waging war against the powers and principalities in your own mind. Stop the spiritual war games, i.e., stop praying against or praying psychic prayers (your own will) towards your brethren (signified by the grass, which is fallen Adam/mortal man), and start waging war against your own Carnal Mind, so that I can appear in you.After a few moments, as i looking towards the ground

[Pastor Vitale Says] . . . looking/thinking/proceeding with your Carnal Mind (the ground)

we were playing from the trees,

[Pastor Vitale Says] from Christ Jesus appearing in mortal men

 suddenly, I saw a ghostly figure of a man walking in front of us

[Pastor Vitale Says] The term "in back" signifies the unconscious part of the mind conversely, the term "in front of, signifies the conscious part of the mind, or the personality. The Lord Jesus is revealing the spiritual nature of Himself, or His personality, to your conscious mind

towards the ground we were playing.

[Pastor Vitale Says] . . . Towards the ground (spiritual earth) of your Carnal Mind

 [I can tell you, for sure.. it wasn't a solid figure. But, quite ghostly, like in the movies. U know like an! apparition. Not solid.]

[Pastor Vitale Says] Do you mean like this?

Matt 14:25-26

25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit [ghost]; and they cried out for fear.KJV

I screamed and alerted everybody of what I saw, and as I was still seeing that ghoslty figure departing away from us, nobody in my group was able to see that man, except me. I was the only one who was able to see him.

[Pastor Vitale Says] You are being called by the Lord at this time to be a mature Christian, to have your sins exposed, to put on Christ, and to manifest His nature to deliver the people who are crying out to him for help.

Acts 9:3,7

3 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:

And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man.KJV

At this point, I pretty much knew that Ghostly figure of a man threw the ball to us.

[Pastor Vitale Says] So, you now have the ball (Jesus' invitation to go on to spiritual maturity, which means having your sins exposed). The question is, how will you respond to His invitation?

Then after a while, I ran to a different ground

[Pastor Vitale Says] A different personality, the personality that manifests the nature of Christ. This indicates that you will accept the Lord's invitation and migrate to the mind (spiritual ground) of Christ.

which is kinda beside  the ground we were playing.

[Pastor Vitale Says] .. . .next to the personality that manifests the Carnal Mind. The Carnal Mind on the mind of Christ, and the personalities that they manifest, are juxtaposed to each other

And i saw hundreds of Ghostly figures of many people walking/running on the ground.

[Pastor Vitale Says] These are spiritual Christians who are manifesting the spiritual nature and personality of Christ Jesus

They were all looking like ghosts.

[Pastor Vitale Says] . . . they all had the ability to walk above the spiritual power of Satan's sea of emotions, which vies with the rational Mind of Christ for dominion over the personality

I joined them and kinda looked like as though I was walking along with them.

[Pastor Vitale Says] This dream prophesies that you are being joined to the spiritual Body of Christ

I guess, while I was doing this, my friends were looking at me. But, nobody was able to see those ghostly figures of people. I knew that.
As i was walking with them.

[Pastor Vitale Says] It sounds like you will be losing some friends along the way, but that is to be expected whenever the Lord calls us to come up higher.

Hmm, why the heck is this dream of mine doesnt seem to fade away out of my memory? :)

[Pastor Vitale Says] Because the Lord is speaking to you, telling you that He is calling you up higher, to the next level of maturity in Christ Jesus, and that there is something that you have to do.

Acts 9:5-6

5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? KJV

Can you please help me out here?

[Pastor Vitale Says] I believe that I have helped you. God bless you as you go forward to submit to the Lord Jesus and fulfill the call on your life


Thanks
