IDENTIFYING ANGELS IN YOUR DREAMS

 

Identifying angels in your dreams is important because it helps you to:

 

1)  Discern whether the dream is from the Lord. 

 

2)  Interpret the Lord’s Word by understanding the purpose of the angel’s presence in the dream.

 

  • If there is a person in the dream that you don’t know who has a pleasant countenance, or is helpful in some way, then that is probably an angel appearing in your dream.  They represent “heaven’s” purposes and resources in one way or another.  They are pretty easy to identify as angels once you realize they look like people.  How?  Because angels are ministering spirits, they are sent to be helpers, like servants, waitresses, stewardesses, etc.  If they are offering help, they are probably angels.

Heb 1:14 AMP

Are not the angels all ministering spirits (servants) sent out in the service [of God for the assistance] of those who are to inherit salvation?

  • If the angel has a name, the meaning of their name is usually their assignment or area of help.

  • There are some ministers you might know that you see in your dreams that are actually angels carrying the identity/ dna/ anointing of that person’s ministry.

ANGELS CARRYING PROPHET'S MESSAGES

I remember hearing the testimony of Bobby Conner say that one time he saw himself walking back and forth in the balcony as he was preaching.  He thought the TV cameras had some cool equipment and they were duplicating him preaching on a screen.  But the Lord opened his natural eyes and he realized he was seeing a bunch of angels walking back and forth that looked exactly like Bobby preaching.  The Lord told Bobby that they were the angels assigned to carry the Lord’s message through Bobby to the ears of those who were prepared to listen. 

Heb 1:14  NKJV
Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister FOR those who will inherit salvation?

I have often seen Bob Jones and also Bobby Conner in dreams and visions. They share the Word of the Lord to me in one fashion or another and I am comfortable with hearing the Lord in this way.  I have heard their own testimonies where they have had visitations from each other, telling the Word of the Lord.  One time they were in a motel for a conference and each sleeping in different rooms.  Bobby did not know he “visited” Bob in the night.  I think he came in the form of a dentist if I remember correctly and that was quite humorous to me.  After praying over this concept, I have come to believe that these are angels carrying their prophetic message, just as in the explanation above.

 

Our level of faith can quench or expand the Words of the Lord and how He speaks to us, and this includes seeing angels.  One time I was being extremely stretched by hearing some prophetic messages through a couple of prophets I did not know and the Lord was introducing me to their writings and experiences.  I can safely say that they freaked me out.  I was so stretched I started to squawk and balk.  I felt I was on the edge of upsetting the Lord with my kicking and so I sincerely apologized for it.  I did not want to grieve the Holy Spirit or quench Him in giving to me in any way.  I wanted my portion of hearing Him to expand, not get smaller.  I told the Lord I badly needed His discernment to be able to weigh the messages, and their experiences, and I badly needed Him to give me the comfort level I needed in my faith.

 

It was at that point, I asked a strange question.  I asked Him if He would please send Bob or Bobby to me to help me bridge my faith.  It didn’t matter to me how, I just needed the bridge.  I knew my comfort zone and Bob was like a spiritual father to me and Bobby was like an elder brother in the Lord.  I have watched them grow up in the Lord and have had an investment of prayer into their lives and I felt comfortable receiving from the Lord through them.  Anyway, that night I saw a bunch of revelations that had been given to Bob and the Lord addressed quite a few of my problems that I was having with the other 2 prophets.  However He was using Bob’s revelations as an example for me to better understand.  I was totally at peace and finally understood some of my problems and areas of stumbling that I was trying to overcome.  The Lord is SO compassionate to answer our prayers when we ask Him!  I woke up a changed person!

In another example, on 9/10/00 I had a vision of an angel driving up next to my car and smile at me a glowing smile. He seemed to say with his face expression, “Well are you, or are you not?” This angel had on a helmet and looked exactly like a person I know who is in deliverance and healing ministry. This angel was a carbon copy image of the man, only a heavenly copy without the sin nature, and with a beautiful countenance and love. When I came out of the vision I heard, “This is where He wants you to come into your maturity.”

 

In real life, this person was alive and I wondered about seeing him like this.  I wondered if it represented his anointing, because he was so glowing and pure and youthful in an innocent and clean way; I knew this was what he would look like in heaven if he had died that day.  After hearing Bobby’s testimony above, I finally understood I was seeing one of the angels that carries his anointing.  It made total sense. 

 

Angels looking like people we know is not unscriptural.  When Peter knocked on the door, they thought it was his angel and ignored his knock.  They would not have been so complacent about it had they not already known that there were angels that looked just like the people they knew. 

Acts 12:13-16 NKJV

And as Peter  knocked at the door of the gate, a girl named Rhoda came to answer. 14 When she recognized Peter's voice, because of her gladness she did not open the gate, but ran in and announced that Peter stood before the gate. 15 But they said to her, "You are beside yourself!" Yet she kept insisting that it was so. So they said, "It is his angel."  16 Now Peter  continued knocking; and when they opened the door  and saw him, they were astonished.

 

Heb 13:2 AMP

Do not forget or neglect or refuse to extend hospitality to strangers [in the brotherhood — being friendly, cordial, and gracious, sharing the comforts of your home and doing your part generously], for through it some have entertained angels without knowing it. [Gen 18:1-8; 19:1-3.] 

 

 

 

 

ABOUT EXPERIENCING ANGELS


In the same way that there are different levels of angels on earth and in heaven, there are different levels of “seeing” angels.  A visitation from an angel can be very powerful, where they reveal the glory, authority and power in which they are given.  These experiences can impact our bodies and overwhelm our humanity. 

 

I am reminded of Daniel who was terrified when Gabriel came. 

Dan 8:17-19  NLT

As Gabriel approached the place where I was standing, I became so terrified that I fell to the ground. "Son of man," he said, "you must understand that the events you have seen in your vision relate to the time of the end."   18 While he was speaking, I fainted and lay there with my face to the ground. But Gabriel roused me with a touch and helped me to my feet.

 

Dan 10:7-11 NLT

Daniel, am the only one who saw this vision. The men with me saw nothing, but they were suddenly terrified and ran away to hide. 8 So I was left there all alone to watch this amazing vision. My strength left me, my face grew deathly pale, and I felt very weak. 9 When I heard him speak, I fainted and lay there with my face to the ground. 10 Just then a hand touched me and lifted me, still trembling, to my hands and knees. 11 And the man said to me, "O Daniel, greatly loved of God, listen carefully to what I have to say to you. Stand up, for I have been sent to you." When he said this to me, I stood up, still trembling with fear.

 

On the other hand, one can have a visitation from an angel and the angel can hide their glory and seem like a person.  When Manoah saw the angel, he thought it was a man of God.  And the angel spoke with him, but it was only when the angel ascended up into the fire did Manoah realize this was an angel of the Lord. 

Judg 13:15-23 NLT

Then Manoah said to the angel of the LORD, "Please stay here until we can prepare a young goat for you to eat."  16 "I will stay," the angel of the LORD replied, "but I will not eat anything. However, you may prepare a burnt offering as a sacrifice to the LORD." (Manoah didn't realize it was the angel of the LORD.)  17 Then Manoah asked the angel of the LORD, "What is your name? For when all this comes true, we want to honor you."  18 "Why do you ask my name?" the angel of the LORD replied. "You wouldn't understand if I told you."   19 Then Manoah took a young goat and a grain offering and offered it on a rock as a sacrifice to the LORD. And as Manoah and his wife watched, the LORD did an amazing thing. 20 As the flames from the altar shot up toward the sky, the angel of the LORD ascended in the fire. When Manoah and his wife saw this, they fell with their faces to the ground.  21 The angel did not appear again to Manoah and his wife. Manoah finally realized it was the angel of the LORD, 22 and he said to his wife, "We will die, for we have seen God!"  23 But his wife said, "If the LORD were going to kill us, he wouldn't have accepted our burnt offering and grain offering. He wouldn't have appeared to us and told us this wonderful thing and done these miracles."  

When we “see” angels in our dreams, and also picture visions, they most often will appear in the form of human beings.  We wont experience the Lord’s glory or authority on them.  Even though these are not overwhelming experiences does not mean they are not authentic.  Remember that the scripture says that some have entertained angels and not been aware of it.  The word unaware in the Greek means to be ignorant and to remain hidden.  The only way this ignorance can happen is if they hide their glory and we see them an mere people and therefore we do not “experience” them. 

Heb 13:2 KJV

Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

 

 

 

 

EXAMPLES OF SEEING ANGELS

 

RHEMA 6/26/02 JOY ANGEL

VISION: I was traveling and went passed a tree.  When I looked back, I saw an angel and he suddenly turned brilliant with God's glory.  He had turned facing the other direction and looked like he was preparing to depart.  His mantle went from his shoulders to his hips and it was glowing white.  My eyes had been opened as in a trance and I tried and tried to keep my eyes open so I could see him.  I begged that he not leave.  

Gen 32:24-26 NKJV

Then Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day. 25 Now when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the socket of his hip; and the socket of Jacob's hip was out of joint as He wrestled with him. 26 And He said, "Let Me go, for the day breaks." But he said, "I will not let You go unless You bless me!"

 

So instead of leaving, he turned toward me, and I was still traveling forward away from him and he blew joy bubbles into the air.  They were about 2-3 inch bubbles.  Then he blew them tome and the wind carried them and I opened my mouth and they popped in my mouth and in my face.  I was so delighted as they popped.

 

I felt the vision closing down, and I tried to keep my eyes open as long as I could.  I saw my own company of angels accompanying me.  There seemed to be somewhere between 7-10 both men and lady angels, each dressed differently, floating above my heard about 6 feet or so.

 

When I woke I felt that the angel I saw was Anna's angel and he had been standing at the family tree.  It was the same oak tree that I had seen before, only this was green and well planted and full of leaves.

 

COMMENT: This was a real blessing and comfort to me.  I was deeply discouraged yesterday.

 

 

 

 

RHEMA 6/06/09 A LARGE CUP

HEARD: Make sure you pay attention.

 

PIX: I saw an angel getting a large tall cup out of the cupboard.

 

HEARD SONG: Our God is an awesome God, He reigns from heaven above.  With wisdom, power and love, our God is an awesome God.

 

HEARD: Don't quit.  Be obedient.  Freely give what you are about to receive.

 

WORD TO PONDER: THE CUP OF THE LORD 6/18/09

I have given you a cup to drink, which is My will for your destiny in My kingdom.  As often as you ponder this truth, it soaks deeper into your life until you finally wholeheartedly accept the full cup.

 

I have received your commitment to Me and how great and tender is My love for you!  In efforts to be faithful to this vow, I see you wrestle between flesh and soul to line them up with My will.  I gave you free will and it means so much when you lay down your independence for My sake. You are such a precious child and you give Me such joy when you seek to wholeheartedly please Me.

 

John 8:28-30 NKJV Then Jesus said to them, "When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things.  29 And He who sent Me is with Me.  The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him."

 

 

 

 

RHEMA 1/19/09 WARNING, DON'T TURN AWAY FROM PARTICIPATING

 

DREAM: I was next and I came to a lady and said, I'm just here for my lesson.  I was not interested in getting involved in whatever they were talking about.

 

PIX: I saw some kind of a weather balloon barometer lowering down in front of me.  It was an instrument attached to a weather balloon that was flying above me.

 

HEARD: Scientist.  The barometer.

 

HEARD: Grew cold waiting.  What is the lesson here?

 

HEARD: Exactly.  You may go now. 

PIX: I saw a coral gate open and a wild horse ran out.

 

HEARD: Welcome into My room.  Table is set.  He who has awakened my spirit to hear.  Why is this important?  Heed what I tell you.  Remain steadfast. 

 

Isa 50:4-5 NKJV

The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary.  He awakens me morning by morning, He awakens my ear to hear as the learned.  The Lord GOD has opened my ear; and I was not rebellious, nor did I turn away.

 

COMMENT: This revealed to me that the Lord desires us to have fellowship and participate in sharing.  While we are waiting upon the Lord to fulfill our promises, this keeps us from growing cold in our spiritual pursuit of Him.  There are some that simply dont want to participate, not because they dont have time, but because they have not had their spirit awakened to hear.  According to the above scripture, we need to be careful not to turn our ear away from hearing Him. 

 

 

 

 

RHEMA 12/08/08 HUMBLE SERVANT STUDYING

 

PIX: I saw an angel in a humble brown robe with cap and he was sitting down at a plain, wooden table to read and study.

 

WORD TO PONDER: TIME FOR DEEPER STUDY 1/19/09

There are times and seasons, each for My purpose.  You have entered a time when it is important to study My Word.  Research, ask questions, dig for answers.  Search for common reference points, common words to understand My bigger picture from history through now.  I AM opening My Word to you, that you may see fuller revelation of what I intended from the very beginning.  Beloved student, if you take the time to study My Word, heed it and not turn away, I will reward you for your time.  Your faith will be rekindled, your understanding will nourish deep roots and your joy shall return.

 

2 Tim 2:15 AMP

Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing[rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth.

 

Isa 50:4-5 NKJV

The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary.  He awakens me morning by morning, He awakens my ear to hear as the learned.  The Lord GOD has opened my ear; and I was not rebellious, nor did I turn away.

 

 

 

 

RHEMA 11/16/99: SAW THE ANGEL GIVEN CHARGE OVER THEM

VISION: I saw an angel.  He was sitting at a table with an open Bible in his hands.  He was blond with curly hair.  He was wide with broad shoulders.

 

HEARD: I come in the name of Jesus Christ.

 

EXPERIENCE: We were staying at the Holiday Inn near the airport and an airplane went up over our room, very loud.

 

HEARD: (As the airplane went over) Glory!

 

WAYNE HEARD: Three times during the night, Wayne heard, "I give My angels charge over you."

 

The last time, the emphasis was upon YOU.

 

WORD TO PONDER ANGELS ON ASSIGNMENT 11/16/99

I have given you angels that are specialized to fit your needs.  I have heard your prayers for increased revelation into the scriptures and I have sent a special angel to help you.  You will find an increase of clarity and your eyes opened to new understandings.  This angel will help ground the things I tell you, with My Word.

 

“For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.” (Ps 91:11 NKJV)

 

UPDATE NOTE: Wayne has read the Bible through at least once per year for most of his life.  I must have seen the angel that is assigned to Wayne, specifically when he reads the Bible. Wayne also spends most of his mornings in prayer. I know there is a host of angels going forth, just like an airport dispatching airplanes.

 

 

 

RHEMA 12/09/02 STRENGTH PROMISED

HEARD
: Daughter, I love you. I will strengthen you. My beloved.

VISION: I saw an angel get into the back seat behind the driver’s seat of our green car. He was a black angel with long, muscular but lean and well toned bare brown legs. He was crammed into the car and too big. He leaned over and peered under the car roof and gave me the most beautiful smile.

HEARD: I am here to help you. Strength.

REVELATION
: I was praying about this angel and wondering what he was supposed to do. Then I suddenly realized the hilarity of this. It was his LEGS that I saw, and they looked like a runner’s legs that were strong and well toned.  He was black because blacks are known for their athletic abilities, especially their running. I was so tickled to have all this revelation with the picture!

 

1 Cor 9:24-25 NKJV

Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.  25 And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.

 

Heb 12:1-2 NKJV

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

 

Acts 20:23-24 NKJV

But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

 

2 Tim 4:8 NKJV

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race , I have kept the faith. 8 Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.
