Tents are very similar to houses in that they represent your personal spiritual life or your ministry. The Word says that we are the temple/house of the Holy Spirit. Seeing a tent speaks about your personal life or about your personal ministry.

Definition For:

The Lord has often shown us a vision where we saw a tent being enlarged. This spoke of an expansion in our ministry. We have also had dreams where we saw a tent tied down, not being able to move. This indicated to us that the ministry was being hindered and restricted in some way. Depending on the condition of the tent that you see, the interpretation will vary.

If you see a tent with a tear in it, this would speak of the ministry having being attacked and damaged and that there needs to come healing and restoration.

Speaking of blessing in your ministry and life:

Isaiah 54:2 "Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of your habitations: spare not, lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes;
3 For you shall break forth on the right hand and on the left; and your seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited."

A tent can also refer to your personal life, revolving around your work or business. Tent making for example was a trade and symbolizes business, enterprise and work.

Acts 18:3 "And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers." (GMR)

Trees have various interpretations and they are very common in scripture. If you look at the dream Nebuchadnezzar had, you will see how he and his kingdom were illustrated as a tree in his dream. A tree speaks of strength and also of generations.

Daniel 4:20 "The tree that you saw, which grew, and was strong, whose height reached into the heavens, and the sight of it to all the earth;
21 Whose leaves [were] beautiful, and the fruit abundant, and in it [was] food for all; under which the beasts of the field dwelt, and upon whose branches the fowls of the heaven had their habitation:
22 It [is] you, O king, that has grown and become strong: for your greatness has grown, and reaches into the heavens, and your dominion to the ends of the earth."

Definition For:

Trees can represent being rooted and strong. You might dream of a tree that is immovable. This would have a good connotation as it is saying that you cannot be moved. When a trees roots are down you cannot pluck it up! Trees also speak of being covered. They not only provide shade, but they protect you also. So if you were to dream of coming under the shade or being protected by a tree, this would speak of coming under covering. In the case of a wife, the covering would be her husband, but this can also refer to the ministry covering of your mentor or spiritual father

Speaking of coming under covering:

Judges 9:15 "The thornbush said to the trees, 'If you really want to anoint me king over you, come and take refuge in my shade; but if not, then let fire come out of the thornbush and consume the cedars of Lebanon!'(NIV)

It is common for me to receive many dreams where various trees and branches in a dream refer to family generations. A Branch in scripture was often used to illustrate the various tribes and families in Israel. This is the most common interpretation in dreams. You might dream that a tree’s branches fall off or that some creature is on the tree. You might see a tree whose root has gone rotten. In each case, it would represent your family generations and the curses that have been passed down to you.

Speaking of generational curses:

Hosea 11:6 "And the sword shall abide on his cities, and shall consume his branches, and devour [them], because of their own counsels.
7 And my people are bent to backsliding from me: though they called them to the most High, none at all would exalt [him]."

Definition For:

The Lord has often used a tree to illustrate our ministry. I remember when the ministry first started out and we saw saplings. We were yet growing! Then from time to time we would see this large tree that became immovable. Soon this tree reproduced and many more trees began to rest under its branches. Further we would see various nations gather under these branches.

What the Lord was saying is that the ministry which had been founded would remain and be strong. That as we poured into others that they would also rise up and become immovable until the whole earth was filled with the glory of God and His people who stood firm! A lovely illustration of this can be found in:

Jeremiah 17:7 "Blessed [is] the man that trusts in the LORD [Yahweh], and whose hope the LORD [Yahweh] is.
8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and [that] spreads out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat comes, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit."

Just as in dreams, branches and roots can have negative interpretations. When I have been in personal ministry and have seen a dark root in a person, I know that the Lord wants me to address a root of bitterness they have in their lives. You can find reference to the root of bitterness in:

Hebrews 12:15 "Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble [you], and by it many be defiled;" (GMR)

Sometimes when we have prayed with divorced individuals, we are led to break ties with the previous spouse. We often see the link with that spouse as a branch grafted into them. As we pray we remove that branch and heal the wound. In cases where the divorcee has now remarried, we then ask the Lord that He would graft the ‘new branch’ in where the old one had been. You can see this illustrated well in scripture:

Romans 11:24 "For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural [branches], be graffed into their own olive tree?" (GMR)

Definition For:

You cannot make a hard and fast rule concerning family and friends in dreams. You would usually dream of an uncle or an aunt in an internal dream and then they would be a representation of a part of yourself. So identify what your uncle means to you in real life. When you think of him, what comes to mind?

I remember when Craig and I were in South Africa, and the rest of the family having gone ahead to Mexico. We felt very isolated at that time as we faced our prophetic preparation. We faced death after death and at times the only thing that kept us sane was my uncle who was still in South Africa. He would spend time in the word with us and we would spend many visits speaking of the Lord and what the future held for us all. For that season he was our mentor and instructor.

So when I dream of him, I know that the Lord is speaking of my prophetic ministry. Because at that time I was facing prophetic preparation and he helped me through it. So identify for yourself what your uncle could speak of in your dreams.

Definition For:

It is also common to see an uncle or aunt in personal ministry when dealing with generational curses or past hurts. At times when I have ministered to someone with regards to an absent father I might see an uncle in the spirit that filled that role. Be sensitive to the spirit and share what you are seeing with the person you are ministering with. The Lord will not give you a revelation without confirming it!

Definition For:

In the natural an umbilical cord speaks of those things that feed you. Depending on what you are receiving, this will be a positive or a negative picture.

Assess the spirit in your dream. If it is positive then the cord could speak of generational blessing.

If the cord is negative, then it speaks of generational cursing.

Definition For:

I see umbilical cords often when ministering to others. It usually has a negative connotation rather than a positive one because the things we receive from our generations is often negative due to the sinful nature of man.  An umbilical cord speaks of strength in the scripture. It can speak of the strength of the Lord, or of the strength of the enemy in their lives.

Speaking of strength:

Job 40:16 "Lo now, his strength [is] in his loins, and his force [is] in the navel of his belly." (GMR)

Speaking of receiving blessing from the Lord:

Proverbs 3:8 "It will be health to your navel, and marrow to your bones." (GMR)

The  Word also speaks of the Lord having taken Israel as His child:

Ezekiel 16:4 "And [as for] your nativity, in the day you were born your navel was not cut, neither were you washed in water to supple [you]; you were not salted at all, nor swaddled at all.
5 None eye pitied you, to do any of these to you, to have compassion upon you; but you were cast out in the open field, to the loathing of your person, in the day that you were born.
6 And when I passed by you, and saw you polluted in your own blood, I said to you [when you were] in your blood, Live; yes, I said to you [when you were] in your blood, Live.
7 I have caused you to multiply as the bud of the field, and you have increased and become great, and you are come to excellent ornaments: [your] breasts are fashioned, and your hair is grown, whereas you [were] naked and bare." (GMR)

In the New Testament we are known as the children of Christ. The scriptures say that the Lord is the vine and we are the branches. He feeds into us His blessing and anointing. But if you are receiving things that do not originate with Him, then the “spiritual umbilical cord” you are receiving from is not of God and needs to be severed.

There are many kinds of vehicles in both dreams and visions. I will share the most common here and perhaps you can relate the vehicle you saw to one of these. In internal prophetic and external dreams, vehicles most often refer to your ministry. In a vision a vehicle may speak of an actual vehicle, but once again it usually speaks of a type of ministry or ministry function.

Definition For:

Cars are by far the most common vehicle in dreams. In an internal dream, you might dream of an old car you once owned or even of a car you desire to own. A car from the past could either represent the circumstances surrounding that time of your life or it may refer to your ‘old ministry functions’ that you flowed in during that time of your life. 

I remember a lady who shared once concerning a dream where she dreamed that she was trying to drive the car she had when she first got saved. The car was old and broken, but she was being pressured to drive it. The interpretation was clear. She was being pressured to function in a ministry and spiritual capacity she had functioned in, in the past. But she had moved on since then and it was not appropriate any longer. It was time for her to move on again. 

I often dream of cars. I might dream that I received a bigger or faster car. This meant that the Lord was going to lead me into a different type of ministry that had a bigger realm of influence than before and that this would be a fast move for me. I have also had a dream where someone else was driving my car. Depending on the character driving your car, the interpretation could vary. 

Your father or husband driving your car could mean that the Lord or that the Lord Jesus is in control of your ministry (depending on your relationship with your father or husband). This would have a good connotation. 

Someone driving your car that represents the flesh, pride or the world system would have a negative connotation. This would mean that something other than the Lord is in control of your ministry and spiritual life!  

Driving the car yourself could be good, speaking of being in control and going the right direction. 

Different cars in your dream could represent different ministries, having your car stolen, taken over or stopped, speaks of your ministry being taken from you. This does not have a good connotation.  

Now that you have a general idea, allow the Holy Spirit to define your dream for you.

A bicycle speaks of a personal small ministry. I often dreamt of trading my car for a bicycle or motorbike. This does not necessarily have a bad connotation; it simply denotes a change of emphasis in ministry. I will often see this in personal ministry as well. The Lord telling someone that they will be traveling alone for a while in personal ministry. 

A boat also speaks of ministry, but to your ministry group or church and not just a representation of you. When I see a boat or ship in vision it represents GMRN as a whole. I seldom see it as pertaining to my personal ministry, but rather to my corporate ministry involving my ministry team members. So if I see a ship in dry docks, it means that things have dried up and that the Holy Spirit has not been given license in this ministry.  

A large battleship represents a ministry involved in warfare and attack. I remember once the Lord showing us that our ‘ship’ had been transformed to a battleship. The message was clear, we were being led into circumstances that required continual warfare and battle against the enemy. This did come to pass and we faced a season of continual warfare. 

Yet again we saw that same ship being transformed to a cruise ship. The Lord let us know that a new season was coming of rest and of peace. This also came to pass. 

There have been other times when we saw the ship in harbor taking on supplies. The Lord told us that this would be a season of not making any major moves, but of waiting in His presence to be filled up and prepared.  

Depending on the size of the boat, its surroundings and its condition will give you a good idea of what the Lord is saying to you at this time with regards to the size, function and season of your ministry. 

These also refer to a type of ministry. An airplane has many functions. A fighter jet speaks of warfare and is prophetic in nature in that it surveys the land and routes out the enemy. I have often seen all my team members as a fighter plane, flying in formation. Each one having a place, each one being a powerful tool in the hand of the Lord. 

A train is fast-moving and needs a track to run on. I have often seen the Lord put a track in front of a person to follow. He was saying that He had laid things out very specifically for them and that they simply had to follow that track! 

You might see yourself laying down the track, which would mean that you are blazing a new trail and laying a new foundation. This could represent an apostolic function, of laying a new foundation for others to follow.  

Let’s take a quick look into the Word to see how various vehicles represent our modern day equivalent: 

A Chariot would be the modern day equivalent of a car, airplane or fighter plane:

Psalms 20:7 "Some [trust] in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD [Yahweh] our God." (GMR) 

Horses also represent cars in scripture:

Isaiah 66:20 "And they shall bring all your brothers [for] an offering to the LORD [Yahweh] out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, says the LORD [Yahweh], as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD [Yahweh]." (GMR) 

Ezekiel 39:20 "Thus you shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, says the Lord GOD." (GMR) 

Boats or Ships

Matthew 13:2 "And great crowds had gathered together for him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore." (GMR)

A vine is very similar to seeing a tree in a dream or vision. It can either speak of blessing and prosperity or of a curse. You would need to sense the spirit on the dream or vision and interpret accordingly.

Definition For:

A vine speaks of the blessing of the Lord. Whenever the Lord gave a promise in the Word, He would promise to give each man a vine. He also refers to Himself as the vine and us as the branches. It speaks of the blessing of the Lord. Spiritual blessings and natural blessings!

John 15:5 "I am the vine, you [are] the branches: He that abides in me, and I in him, is the one that brings forth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing." (GMR)

Speaking of blessing:

Joel 2:21 "Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD [Yahweh] will do great things.
22 Be not afraid, you beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness spring, for the tree bears her fruit, the fig tree and the vine yield their strength."

Zechariah 8:12 "For the seed [shall be] prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these [things]." (GMR)

You can get a vine that does not bear fruit or that is wicked. This would refer to not going on with the Lord or even a curse. A vine that does not bear fruit speaks of being lukewarm and not obedient to God’s word. According to scripture, such a vine would be cast into the fire. 

Speaking of judgment:

Luke 3:9 "And now also the axe is laid to the root of the trees: every tree therefore which brings not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire." (GMR) 

Ezekiel 15:6 "Therefore thus says the Lord GOD; As the vine tree among the trees of the forest, which I have given to the fire for fuel, so will I give the inhabitants of Jerusalem." (GMR)

A wall can be both positive and negative. You need to discern the context of your dream or vision to get the full revelation.

Definition For:

It is very common to dream of your wife. Depending on your relationship with her, you will interpret what she represents differently.

There are those walls that we build around themselves for protection.

Definition For:

The scriptures speak of the angel of the Lord encamping around us. In this context a wall speaks of protection and security. The Word also speaks of the Lord being a tower. Once again this symbolizes protection and strength. I often see the Lord placing a wall of protection around a person and when I speak blessing, this is one of the blessings I like to pray. I see a large wall surrounding the person as a fence and not allowing anything harmful to come to them.

There is also the wall that surrounds a city that the watchman stands on. This wall refers to the position of the prophet who watches out for the children of God and is also a form of defense and protection against any work of the enemy. The Lord has often shown me His watchmen upon the walls watching and speaking forth His decree.

In fact I put this very concept into action when I founded the Network Indestructible, setting up a ‘prayer wall’ where prophets from all over the world would take a time to stand on the wall (spiritually speaking) to watch out for attack and also to cover their fellow members, GMRN and the church in prayer. A lot of revelation and words of decree continue to come through the prophets that remain vigilant on that wall!

Speaking of the Lord’s protection and strength:

Psalms 18:2 "The LORD [Yahweh] [is] my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, [and] my high tower." (GMR)

Isaiah 25:4 "For you have been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones [is] as a storm [against] the wall." (GMR)

Speaking of the Watchman on the wall:

Isaiah 21:5 "Prepare the table, watch in the watchtower, eat, drink: arise, you princes, [and] anoint the shield.
6 For thus has the Lord said to me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he sees." (GMR)

A wall can also speak of an obstacle. Many times I have seen someone come up against a wall in their lives or ministry. At times I have even been released of the Lord to put a wall in someone’s path to prevent them from going in the direction they are going in. This is a prophetic office function though, so I do not encourage anyone to speak such words unless they are released to do so from the Lord and stand fully in prophetic or apostolic office.

Speaking of putting someone “between two walls”:

Numbers 22:24 "But the angel of the LORD [Yahweh] stood in a path of the vineyards, a wall [being] on this side, and a wall on that side." (GMR)

Speaking of a wall as an obstacle:

Hosea 2:6 "Therefore, behold, I will hedge up your way with thorns, and make a wall, that she shall not find her paths." (GMR)

Definition For:

It is very common to dream of your wife. Depending on your relationship with her, you will interpret what she represents differently.

Most commonly your wife would represent your recreated spirit in Christ. You might have a dream that your wife is trying to speak to you, but you cannot hear her. This would mean that your spirit is trying to get a message to you, but something is blocking it. You might dream that your wife is driving your car and leading you on a new or old road. This would mean that you are being led by your spirit to go a different direction.

You might dream that your wife gives you a gift. This would mean that there is a new spiritual gift that the Lord has for you. Depending on the gift, the interpretation of what that gift is will vary.

Your relationship with your wife could also represent your relationship with the Lord. You might dream that you are having an affair and your wife finds out and is upset. This would mean that you are allowing things of the world to seduce you and draw you away from the Lord and what you know is the direction of God for your life.

An ex-wife that you divorced on bad terms might refer to your flesh. She might speak of your pride, your failure or your weaknesses. Ask yourself: What comes to my mind when I think of my wife or ex-wife? The first impression you have of her will likely reflect what part of yourself she represents in an internal dream.

If your wife has a negative connotation for you, dreaming of her driving your car would have a negative connotation! This would mean that your flesh is in control of your ministry.

Definition For:

In scripture we are referred to as the Bride of Christ. So if you were to see a bride in vision, she would represent the church. See ‘Woman’ for more on this.

Revelation 21:2 "And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband." (GMR)

Illustration our intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus as His bride:

Song of Solomon 4:11 "Your lips, O [my] bride, drop [as] the honeycomb: honey and milk [are] under your tongue; and the fragrance of your garments [is] like the smell of Lebanon." (GMR)

Definition For:

You may at times dream of a woman that is familiar in your dreams, but in reality you do not know them. As I teach in The Way of Dreams and Visions a familiar feminine character in your dreams often represents your animus – your feminine side. This side is artistic, creative, prophetic and totally allegorical.  

In a positive dream you might dream that you are embracing this lady. Some men who have shared such dreams with me felt guilty that they were embracing this women in their dreams, but the dream was actually positive because it meant that the Lord was leading them into a more prophetic orientation. 

This also applies to a women. As a woman you might dream that you are befriending this women character in your dream. Perhaps even embracing her. This does NOT mean that you have homosexual tendencies. It means simply that you are moving more towards a prophetic orientation. 

I had a case where a man dreamt that he had a sex reversal and was changed to a woman. The interpretation was that the Lord was leading him out of his analytical masculine thinking and into an allegorical, prophetic orientation. This confirmed a recent direction the Lord had given him with regards to his calling.

Depending on how you are responding to this feminine character in your dream, she could mean different things. If you are ignoring her, it could mean that you have been ignoring your prophetic or feminine side and the Lord wants you to get back to it. Perhaps in your dream she is being killed, which could mean that the Lord is brining the prophetic in you to death so that you can move on to the masculine, teaching orientation. You must identify what you sensed in the dream and what witnesses in your spirit.

Definition For:

Depending on the context of your vision, seeing a woman will have a different meaning. If it is a woman you know, then the vision relates to her. If it is a woman you do not know she could represent something else. A pregnant woman refers to something new that is about to be birthed. Depending on the direction of your prayer at the time, the birth could refer to the ministry, church or person you were praying for. 

If she refers to the church as a whole, consider:

Revelation 12:1 "And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered."

Of course seeing a bride speaks of the bride of Christ. Depending on how you see her, will give you the full interpretation. A bride standing in splendor would speak of the plan the Lord has for His church.  A bride whose garments are tattered speaks of the church being in a state of disarray and needing mending. 

Revelation 21:9 "And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife." (KJV)

A woman dressed in scarlet has a negative connotation according to:

Revelation 17:4 "And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration."
