Biblical Meaning of Dreams About Our Ex Partners

Biblical Meaning of Dreams About Our Ex Partners image

Dreams about ex partners are incredibly common. In fact, up to 50% of people have dreams about their exes. But what do these dreams actually mean? When it comes to interpreting the deeper meaning of dreams, the Bible can provide some fascinating insight. There are a number of biblical passages that relate to dreams and their symbolism. Biblical Interpretation of Dreams About Your Ex Dreaming of an ex can bring up a lot of emotions, but according to the Bible, it's usually nothing to be alarmed about. The most common interpretation is that dreaming of an ex signifies unfinished business or unresolved feelings. It's your subconscious mind's way of working through lingering emotions or thoughts about the relationship. However, if your ex seems angry, manipulative, or threatening in the dream, it may indicate you have some anxiety, hurt, or distrust still hanging around that needs to be addressed. The Bible says we should forgive others for their wrongs, so consider praying for the courage and willingness to forgive your ex completely. This can help bring you inner peace. On the other hand, dreaming of an ex in a positive light, like reminiscing about good times together or even getting back together, can mean you miss...

(Genesis 1:27) This is a detail from a painting by Michelangelo called "The Creation of Adam." It is Michelangelo's idea of God (on the right), reaching out to touch Adam with the spark of life. How are people different from other things God created? 1. They walk upright?2. They talk?3. God created them in His image? Did you pick 3? But what does it mean to have God's image? When God created the first humans they they were pure and sinless. That’s part of having the image of God. But even after the first man and woman sinned, God’s image was still in people. It set them apart from the rest of creation. Here are some ways: - People have creativity. They can draw, sing, build....

Create!

TODAY'S SPECIAL: Read: Genesis 1:1-13 TO CHEW ON: "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." (Genesis 1:1) What does it mean to create:1. Arrange things in an original way?2. Cause something to come into existence?3. Change something so it doesn’t look like the original thing? I’m sure you’ll agree it’s 2. We do call people who put things together in interesting ways creative, but to create means to bring something into existence which didn’t exist before. People explain how the sun, moon, stars and earth came into existence in different ways. Some believe it was through the big bang – a cosmic explosion – and that all life evolved from a single-cell after that. (In order for this explanation to make sense, we need to go back to that first step and ask who made the things that exploded and that single cell in the first place?)...

Some Jewish leaders from the cities he had traveled to earlier saw him in the Jerusalem temple. Now they set the whole crowd against him. Soon there was another riot as bad as the one in Ephesus. The crowd became so violent Roman soldiers had to rescue Paul or he would have been killed. The soldiers tied him up with chains. They thought someone who got the crowd so angry must be a very bad person. Then they carried him to jail. Just before Paul was taken into the jailhouse, he asked for permission to talk to the angry crowd....

Your Best

TODAY’S SPECIAL: Ephesians 6:6-9 TO CHEW ON: "Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does." Ephesians 6:7,9 “No TV until your room is clean,” Mom announces one Saturday morning. Your room is a total mess. After you spend a few minutes trying to tidy it, you know it’s hopeless. So you take everything that’s cluttering up your floor and desk, and either slip it under the bed or pile it in the closet. Once you’ve closed the closet door and made your bed, your room looks great. Everyone is impressed - until Mom inspects it. In no time you’re back in your room and hard at work! Though we may sometimes get away with doing a half-hearted job for people, we can never fool God. He sees our attitude and knows if we’ve really done our best. When we do our best, we may not get compliments and thanks from people. But God sees and someday He’ll reward us for jobs well done. Knowing He is watching is the best reason to do our best in everything....

Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?" 2 Corinthians 6:14 In Bible times, teams of oxen were used to do farm work, like pull a plow. A heavy wooden yoke was placed on the necks two oxen. The yoke was attached with leather straps to the plow. Together the oxen pulled the plow, while the plowman walked behind them working the plow parts and breaking the ground. This yoke kept the oxen moving and pulling in the same direction....

TODAY’S SPECIAL: 1 Kings 18:1-15 TO CHEW ON: "After a long time, in the third year, the word of the Lord came to Elijah: 'Go and present yourself to Ahab, and I will send rain on the land.' So Elijah went to present himself to Ahab." 1 Kings 18:1,2 Obadiah had a tough job and an evil boss. His job was to be in charge of the palace in Samaria, where Ahab and Jezebel ruled. What made this especially hard was the fact that Obadiah loved and obeyed God. His boss, Ahab, didn’t. Because Obadiah loved God, he did a dangerous thing. When Queen Jezebel was killing all the prophets of God, he sneaked one hundred of them away and hid them so they were safe. The last while had been hard for King Ahab. Three years passed from when Elijah came to him and said there would be no rain. By now the land was completely scorched, the grass yellow, the plants brown and shriveled. This day Ahab sent Obadiah out to look for any patches of grass left where animals could graze....

TODAY’S SPECIAL: Hebrews 4:12,13 TO CHEW ON: "For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." Hebrews 4:12 You have just fallen off your skate board. But even after you cleaned up your scraped arm it keeps hurting. Then it begins to swell. What do you do?- Take a pain pill to make the pain go away?- Wrap it in a sling and keep it very still?- Go to the doctor for an examination and an x-ray? You may do the first two. But chances are if the pain doesn’t go away, you’ll do the last one too. Though a pill and keeping your arm still may help make the pain less for a little while, those things don’t tell you the reason for the pain so you can fix the cause. An x-ray picture, on the other hand, will show the doctor what happened inside your arm. If it shows your arm is broken, the doctor can move the bone pieces back together (set it), and put your arm in a cast to protect it and help it...

This very thing happened to young Solomon. It was in the beginning of his reign. He was about twenty years old and he didn’t have much experience. Every day he realized more what a big job it was to be king. One night he had a dream. In that dream God said, “Ask for whatever you want me to give you.” Think of all of the things for which Solomon could have asked. Can you list some?...

One night God told Joseph in a dream that it was now safe to go back home. So Joseph, Mary and Jesus traveled back to live in Nazareth where Joseph and Mary had lived before Jesus was born. Every year, Jesus’ family went to the temple in Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover. The year Jesus was 12, his parents were already on their way home when they realized Jesus wasn’t with them or their friends. When they went back to Jerusalem, they found Him in the temple. 4. He was __________ (gnitlsnei) and 5. ___________ ( isgkan) questions. (Luke 2:46) “Why did you look for me?” he asked his anxious parents. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?” Of course, they didn’t understand that the Father He was talking about was God.

When God says “Go”

TODAY’S SPECIAL: Acts 9:10-19 TO CHEW ON: "But the Lord said to Ananias, 'Go.'” Acts 9:15 Saul had a reputation. Followers of Jesus (Christians) knew him as someone who showed no mercy. Imagine Ananias’s (not the same Ananias as “Ananias and Sapphira”) surprise when God told him, in a vision, to go to Straight Street in Damascus and pray for Saul, his dangerous enemy. At first Ananias argued, “God, You can’t mean that! Don’t you know who this man is?” But God’s answer to Ananias was “Go.” For God knew what had happened to Saul three days before. He didn’t tell Ananias that it would be safe. He just asked Annanias to obey. So Annanias went. "Saul and Ananias" by Benjamin West (1738-1820) When he got to the house, Ananias didn’t meet the dangerous persecutor Saul he expected. Instead he met the blind and helpless baby Christian Saul. Ananias put his hands on Saul’s shoulders. “Brother Saul,” he said, “the Lord—Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit." Immediately something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes. He could see again! He asked to be baptized, ate some food...

What’s wrong with grumbling anyway?

TODAY’S SPECIAL: Numbers 21:4-9 TO CHEW ON: "But the people grew impatient on the way; they spoke against God and against Moses, and said, 'Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? There is no bread! There is no water! And we detest this miserable food!' ” Numbers 21:4,5 Have you ever grumbled about any of these things: food, clothes, the weather, too much to do, not enough to do, the things you have, the things you don’t have? I have to admit, I have – and I’d be surprised if you haven’t as well. Grumbling and complaining are pretty common ways people react to things they don’t like. And that’s what the Israelites did as they continued their travels. They complained about God, Moses, the food, no water. Instead of trusting in what God had said about their future, they doubted and wailed, “We’re going to die in this desert.” So God sent poisonous snakes among them. These snakes bit them and many of the people died – just for complaining! The only way they could be saved after they had been bitten was to look at the bronze snake Moses had mounted on a pole in the...

Acts 20:24 What’s important to you?- Winning the championship?- Getting an A on the test - or even just a pass?- Pleasing your parents?- Hanging out with friends?- Going on a holiday?

If you jump from the third step, you have faith that you will land, not on the ceiling or against the wall, but on the floor.If you plug in an iron and turn it on, you don’t touch the bottom, because you have faith that it will be hot.If the light turns green in traffic, your mom drives through the intersection with faith that the people who would be coming across your path will have a red light and will stop. In the same way that we have faith in invisible things like gravity, electricity, and people, God wants us to have faith in Him. In order to please God, what two things must we believe? (Hebrews 11:6):1.2. If we have faith in God, we will show it by doing the things He tells us to. Hebrews 11 names some people who had faith. They proved it by what they did.

What Would Jesus Do?

TODAY’S SPECIAL: Luke 5:27-31 TO CHEW ON: "Jesus answered them, 'It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.'” Luke 5:31,32 One day Jesus saw a tax collector named Levi (also called Matthew) sitting at his tax booth. “Follow me,” Jesus said to him. So Levi left his tax booth and went with Jesus. "The Calling of Levi" - James Tissot, 1886 - 1896 Levi liked Jesus so much he wanted others to meet this new friend. He prepared a banquet and invited all his tax collector friends and Jesus. Not everybody would have been comfortable at Levi's dinner. Most people hated tax collectors. One reason was they collected taxes for the Roman rulers. The Jews hated the Romans ruling over them. Even worse, tax collectors usually asked for more than the Romans charged. Then they kept the extra to get rich themselves. People called them thieves and thought of them as sinners. When the Pharisees and religious teachers saw Jesus at Levi’s party, they criticized Him. If He was such a wise teacher, how could He not know these men were sinners?...

What time is it?

TODAY’S SPECIAL: 2 Peter 3:3-13 TO CHEW ON: "But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day." 2 Peter 3:8 How long is it from one Christmas to the next? From this summer holiday to next summer holiday? From your 10th birthday to your 11th? You know it’s only a year, yet it seems like a long time. So when we read in the Bible that a thousand years is like one day to God, we realize that He’s in a different time zone than we are altogether. The idea of a 1000-year day makes the year which feels long to us only a few minutes to God! The people in Bible times were a lot like we are. Forty years after Jesus had gone back to heaven and still hadn’t returned, people said, “Where is this ‘coming’ He promised?” Now it’s 2000 years later and though Jesus has still not returned, we know that He will keep his promise. After all, in the way God looks at time, it hasn’t been that long at all – only two days and a few minutes! He could return any...

Esther 6:1 King Xerxes was tired of tossing and turning and trying to fall asleep. “Bring the record books and read to me,” he commanded. A servant began reading to him and soon came to the part that told about Mordecai telling about the plot to kill him. “Has anything been done to honor him for that?” Xerxes asked. “No, nothing,” the servant replied. Just then there was a sound in the courtyard. It was Haman. “Call him in,” the king commanded. Haman was excited. He had just finished building a 75-foot gallows in his yard and was on his way to get permission from Xerxes to hang Mordecai on it. But before he had a chance to say anything, the king asked, “What should I do for the person I’d like to honor?” Who would the king want to honor more than me, Haman wondered. And so he told Xerxes the best thing he could imagine. “That person should wear a royal robe,” he said. “He will be put on the king’s...

Tell me, what do you have in your house?''Your servant has nothing there at all,' she said, 'except a small jar of olive oil.'” 2 Kings 4:2 Elisha became a leader among the prophets like Elijah was before him. One day the wife of a prophet who had died came to Elisha with a big problem. “My husband owed a man some money,” she said. “Now that man says if I don’t pay back the debt, he’ll make my sons his slaves.” “What do you have in your house?” Elisha asked. “Only a little oil,” the woman replied. “Here’s what to do,” Elisha said. “Send your boys out to gather oil containers. Collect as many as you can. Then close the door of your house and fill all those containers with the oil you have.” How would she ever fill even one container with the little bit of oil she had, the woman wondered. Yet she did as Elisha said. After her sons had collected bottles, jugs and jars of all shapes and sizes from the neighborhood, they began to fill them. And an amazing thing happened. The oil never ran...
