  2. It can determine many things in one’s life positively or negatively.
  3. Many people started the journey of PROGRESS or DISASTER through the GATE OF DREAMS.

  5. One can have many Victories and Blessings through DREAMS like King Solomon (1 Kings 3 v 5-13).

  1. In concluding this message, let us consider the dreams of king Pharaoh’s chief Butler and Baker that led to victory and defeat respectively.

 

PROMOTION VERSUS DEATH THROUGH DREAMS

 

Genesis 40 v 1-22 (King Pharaoh’s Baker and Butler’s Dreams)

 

    • King Pharaoh’s Butler and Baker dreamt at the same time and same place in the prison.
    • They were sad because they did not know the meaning of the dreams.
    • Joseph was there in the prison, who perceived that something had happened to them
    • The king’s Butler was the first to narrate his dream to Joseph and the interpretation was: RELEASE, RESTORATION and PROMOTION
    • The King’s baker narrated his own dream also, which was interpreted to indicate DEATH

 

  • The two dreams came to pass within a three-day interval

 

  • One to DEFEAT and DEATH and the other to RELEASE and ELEVATION

 Gen. 40 v 20-22

  1. 20 – “And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.”

 

v.21 – “And he restored the chief butler unto his butlership again; and he gave the cup into Pharaoh’s hand”

v.22 – “But he hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted to them.”

 

  • If the King’s Baker had prayed for divine intervention and deliverance, he would not have been a victim of sudden death.
  • Likewise, failure to understand and pray relevant prayers can make one a victim of NEGATIVE DREAMS.

 

Finally, listen to the following counsels:

 

  • You need deliverance, if you don’t dream at all
  • You need deliverance if you dream and forget. In this case, pray with John 14:26 for the Holy spirit to remind you of the dream  
  • If you dream, ask the Holy Spirit to interpret for you; don’t use your mental knowledge to interpret.
  • Pay attention to every dream you have: never take any one of them for granted
  • The negative dream you don’t deal with in prayers will deal cruelly with you with grave consequences
  • When you have a bad dream, cancel it immediately with the blood of Jesus. Forbid the manifestations in Jesus name.
  • Whenever you have a good dream, pray for the manifestation in Jesus name.
