Dreams are very interesting and challenging to understand. So much so, people can go to dream centers to have their dreams interpreted to see what is happening in the brain or why they are having a certain dream. People even go to palm readers to help them understand their dreams or will do all kinds of things to help them interpret the craziness of their dreams. Unfortunately, even Christians will often wonder why they had a certain dream. Was this a sign from God? Is He showing me something that is coming?
There is no question that God can do whatever He wants, even using dreams to get our attention about something we are going through to have us pray or have a conversation with someone. But God doesn’t use dreams to interpret the future anymore. There was a time He did, in fact, Daniel had several dreams or visions about his future and the future of the nation of Israel. But once the Scriptures were complete, God doesn’t need to show us the future anymore, we know it!
And in the future, there is coming a time when God will allow Satan to rule for a time. And Satan will use a man to help him. He is referred to as Antichrist, a man who will be possessed by demons or a demon of incredible power. And he will literally rule the world for a time. And during his rule, there will be horrible destruction, as he takes control of all the worlds commerce and even the worlds religious system. All in an attempt to cause the world to worship Satan, his leader. But Satan’s rule will be false, his real goal is not for the benefit of people, but to benefit himself, because he wants to be God.
Sadly, many in that day will be deceived by his power. Their hearts will desire to follow him and actually worship him. But, they will be ultimately destroyed, simply because they thought they were worshiping the true God. However, the true God is not a God of hate or vengeance, but love. He wants His creation to worship Him because He has made a way for them to be rescued from Satan and his trappings. He loves the world so much that He sent His Son to died for the world. Satan would never do that.
