What Does It Mean When You Dream Of A Spiritual Leader
Most dreams about seeing a spiritual leader (especially a pastor) is often a good omen. Only on rare occasions do such dreams mean something negative.
You can expect more than 80% dreams of seeing a pastor to emanate God. But it is also needful to highlight the fact that, not every spiritual leader is of God.
Before we jump into conclusion that the dream we just saw about a spiritual leader we know is from God, we should first of all be sure that, the particular man or woman of God we saw in our dream is truly called and sent by God. This is a very important step.
Acts 20:29 KJVFor I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
What does a pastor represent in a dream? You'll agree with me that not every preacher who holds a microphone and preaches from the pulpit has a genuine calling from Heaven.
Sometimes, people see dreams about their spiritual leader, not because that particular man or woman is of God, but because they are a follower and they feel that person's calling and ministry is from God. This is where one needs to be extremely cautious and discerning when trying to understand, interpret and act on such dreams.
We must not forget that Satan is a master in manipulation, that is why it is advisable before one draws conclusion that a dream they saw about their favourite preacher is a message from God, they should be sure that preacher is genuine and has a genuine calling from God.
Since in most cases, pastors in dreams represent God Himself, it is important to stress that, it is not in God's character to use the image of a false preacher to convey a message to a genuine Christian in their dreams.
Meaning Of Seeing A Man Of God In Your Dream
So let's assume that you've already discerned and the Lord has confirmed to you that a particular man of God is genuine. Whenever you see this man of God in your dream, you need to pay attention to every detail in that dream, because through such dreams, God always has something He's trying to reveal to the dreamer.
John 3:34a KJVFor he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God.
What is the meaning of seeing a pastor in a dream? Understand that when you see a genuine man of God in your dream, it is rarely a man, but God Himself using the image of that person to communicate with you and deliver a message to you.
Because that man is God's vessel—just as the Lord passes through them to deliver a message in the physical realm—He could also decide to do the same through dreams. There is nothing strange about this.
Sometimes, one could see a “not so pleasing” dream about a genuine minister of the Gospel. Such a dream could come in form of the man of God needing help or being in trouble. The first thing you should do in such a scenario is to pray fervently for that servant of God. Make sure you are led when it comes to telling or not telling them about this dream, but always make sure that you pray.
Dreaming Of Pastor Talking To You
Prophetic dreams are very common in the end times, and a dream of pastor talking to you happens to be one of them. The role of a pastor is shepherding the flock i.e the Body of Christ, and Jesus Christ Himself is the Chief Shepherd.
Jeremiah 3:15 NIVThen I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding.
The Lord made us understand that one of the major means through which He will communicate with us in the last days is dreams and visions (Joel 2:28). In most dreams where a person sees their pastor talking to them, it is Jesus Christ Himself communicating with the dreamer.
Job 33:14-15 KJVFor God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.  In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed.
God speaks to us through dreams and sometimes He might decide to do that through a dream of a pastor talking to you. Whenever you see such a dream, I'll advise you to not take it lightly. Every detail within that dream matters. It is very important to have a dream journal to document such dreams.
If you dream and saw yourself with a pastor having a conversation, it would be great if you could recall every detail of that conversation and get the message that was conveyed to you, because it is very possible that God was speaking directly to you in that dream.
If God passes through a man of God in the physical realm to speak to you via a prophecy or word of knowledge, then He can as well do the same through a dream.
What Does It Mean When You Are Delivered By A Pastor In A Dream
Our God works in mysterious ways; no man should try fitting Him in a box. God is versatile in His operations, we shouldn’t try to limit Him to one mode of operation.
I've heard stories of people receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit in their dreams. If our Jesus Christ can baptise and fill people with the Holy Spirit while they are asleep, then He can as well deliver them from demons and spiritual bondage in their dreams. Such could come in form of seeing oneself delivered by a pastor in a dream. This shouldn't be seen as a strange thing.
Dreaming Of A Pastor Praying For You
If you dreamed that a pastor prayed for you, in most cases, this is an indication that someone somewhere is interceding for you.
Since prayers provide solutions to spiritual problems, this dream could also come as a confirmation that God has taken away a certain problem from your life.
Dreaming that a pastor prayed for you in your dream is sometimes a very powerful encounter with God. If you're someone who has been seeking God for a particular thing, God may decide to meet you and give you that through a dream. It could come as impartation—via a dream of pastor praying for you.
Dream Of Fake Pastor
If you happen to see a dream of a fake pastor, it is possible that God is exposing some forms of deception around you. If you know the person shown to you in your dream, it is advisable you be careful with them.
Matthew 24:4-5 KJVAnd Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
If you had a connection with them before seeing this dream, this dream could have come to let you see who they truly are, so you would disconnect from them in order to be safe.
Yet, it's still left for the dreamer to inquire from God and be led on what to do with this dream.
