Dream Interpreters of the Bible Daniel

Daniel of the Bible was not only a dreamer himself, but he also interpreted the dreams of others. King Nebuchadnezzar was one such recipient of Daniel’s dream interpreting gift. The king had a troubling dream which none of the mystics, sorcerers, and occult leaders in his kingdom could interpret. But Daniel, led and inspired by God, sought the Lord for the interpretation through which he astonished the king and his court. 

Daniel replied, “No wise man, enchanter, magician or diviner can explain to the king the mystery he has asked about, but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries. He has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will happen in days to come” (Daniel 2:27–28 NIV). 

King Nebuchadnezzar dreamed that a statue stood before him. It was awesome in appearance, and its head was made of gold. Its breast and its arms were silver, and its belly and thighs were made of bronze. Its legs were iron, and its feet were partly iron and partly clay. The king continued looking at the statue until a stone was cut, without hands, out of a nearby mountain. The stone struck the statue’s feet and the entire statue crumbled. The wind blew the dust of the statue away so that not a trace of it could be found. Then the stone that struck the statue became a great mountain and filled the whole earth. Daniel heard the king’s dream and gathered three of his friends to pray and ask God for the interpretation, so that he could interpret what the sorcerers could not. After prayer, Daniel’s interpretation of the king’s dream was this: 

The statue’s head of gold was the king himself to whom God had given authority over all of the land. Daniel went on to say that after Nebuchadnezzar, another kingdom would arise that was inferior to his— represented by the silver breast and arms of the statue. Then a third kingdom of bronze would rise up, indicated by the belly and the thighs. The forth kingdom was to be one of iron and it would crush and break all things, as iron does. The clay was representative of the mixing of the offspring of man with the iron, or the kingly heirs. This indicated the lack of cohesiveness and, therefore, weakness of the last kingdom. The kingdoms of this world will become the kingdoms of our God and King. 

Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold—the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure (Daniel 2:45 NASU). 

Then the king had a second dream and remembered Daniel’s interpretation of his first dream: 

I saw a dream which made me afraid, and the thoughts on my bed and the visions of my head troubled me. Therefore I issued a decree to bring in all the wise men of Babylon before me, that they might make known to me the interpretation of the dream (Daniel 4:5–6).Then the magicians, the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers came in, and I told them the dream; but they did not make known to me its interpretation. But at last Daniel came before me (his name is Belteshazzar, according to the name of my god; in him is the Spirit of the Holy God), and I told the dream before him, saying, “Belteshazzar, chief of the magicians, because I know that the Spirit of the Holy God is in you, and no secret troubles you, explain to me the visions of my dream that I have seen, and its interpretation” (Daniel 4:7–9 NKJV).

Make Note of the Main Facts 

The occult prognosticators are not able to reveal God’s hidden mysteries because they cannot enter into the realm of God’s light. They operate in the darkened soul realm, out of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. They have not been enlightened to know truth. Only believers who are full of the Spirit of God can interpret a Spirit-given dream through the Tree of Life, Jesus. Daniel gathered his friends and they sought and worshipped God for the interpretation of the king’s dreams. Daniel was able to receive revelation, insight and knowledge from God because he was a man of prayer. An interesting detail that we find in Scripture is that in his own dreams, Daniel wrote down the main facts. It is not necessary to write down every small exacting detail of a dream, just the main things that stand out—colors, images, people, names, etc.

 In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream and visions of his head while on his bed. Then he wrote down the dream, telling the main facts (Daniel 7:1). 

The greatest power in the universe is love.
