BABEL

Brown-Driver-Briggs’ Definition:
894  Babel-

Babel or Babylon = "confusion (by mixing)";

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

NEGATIVE...
Babel has no positive connotation. It is known as the tower of confusion. In the spirit when I see the tower of Babel, it resembles the ‘status quo’ church or those ministries that are trying to make a name for themselves using externals..

BABIES / Babe / Baby

Definition For:
DREAMS

POSITIVE...
If you are dreaming of giving birth, it means that there is something new that you are busy entering into in the spiritual realm. A baby speaks of a new life and a new aspect in your life and ministry. A baby boy often speaks of a teaching and leadership type of ministry, whereas a baby girl speaks of a more prophetic emphasis in your ministry.

NEGATIVE...
If you dream that you lose your child or baby, it means that you have neglected and lost the promotion in the spiritual realm. If you dream of neglecting your baby, it means you have not been using your spiritual gifts. If you dream that you are taking another person’s baby, it means that you have taken on responsibilities that are not your own. A baby and child also indicate that this spiritual gift is yet young in you. It means that you are yet immature in that calling.

Definition For:
VISIONS

POSITIVE...
Babies speak of a new life. They speak of innocence. They are not yet corrupted and have the strongest faith, this is why Jesus told us to be like little children. Babies also speak of innocence, humility and purity. In personal ministry I have seen a woman holding a baby, at one time it was a confirmation because the lady had been believing for a child. Another time the baby I saw was symbolic for a new ministry that the Lord was birthing in the person.

Babies speak of the blessing of the Lord and they are carriers of our blessing. As we pour the anointing of the Lord into them, they will in turn pour it out to others. This is why they are often pictures of your ministry, because as you pour out in ministry, those who receive are blessed and pour it out to others as well.

I see babies often during inner healing and when I do I know that the Lord wants to bring healing to that person with regards to painful events that took place when they were still a baby.

Speaking of faith in innocence:

Psalms 8:2 Out of the mouth of babies and nursing infants have you ordained strength because of your enemies, that you might silence the enemy and the avenger.(GMR)

Speaking of passing on the blessing:

Psalms 78:6 That the generation to come might know [them, even] the children [which] should be born; [who] should arise and declare [them] to their children:
7 That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:(GMR)

Speaking of birthing a ministry:

Isaiah 66:7 Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.
8 Who has heard such a thing? who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? [or] shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
9 Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? says the LORD [Yahweh]: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut [the womb]? says your God.(GMR)

Speaking again of ministry:

Galatians 4:23 But he [who was] of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman [was] by promise.
24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which engenders to bondage, which is Agar.
25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answers to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.(GMR)

Speaking of humility:

Matthew 18:3 And said, Assuredly I say to you, Unless you turn about, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is great in the kingdom of heaven.(GMR)

 

NEGATIVE...
If you see a baby in the spirit, it could mean that the person you are ministering to is yet a babe in their spiritual walk. Although the revelation could be an external revelation i.e. they are about to have an actual baby – I am referring here to a symbolic child.

Speaking of immaturity:

Hebrews 5:13 "For every one that useth milk [is] unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe." (GMR)

BACK / Backbone

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
To have a strong backbone in humanistic terms means to be confident and strong. The back or backbone, speaks of strength and is the center of the human body. The back is what holds up the body, without it the body is useless. It also holds up the head. If we compare the back to the Body if Christ, it would represent the strength and structure of the church. As all the bones and flesh are held up by the backbone.

The back also speaks of things being put behind you and being in the past. You might dreams that you are turning your back on something. Perhaps the Lord is saying that you must turn your back on your past and let it go. That He has dealt with the sins of the past.

The back also speaks of a change of mind. Of going back on something.

Speaking of forgiveness of past sins:

Isaiah 38:17 Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but you have in love to my soul [delivered it] from the pit of corruption: for you have cast all my sins behind your back.(GMR)

Speaking of changing your mind:

Joel 2:14 Who knows [if] he will turn back and change his mind, and leave a blessing behind him; [even] a meat offering and a drink offering to the LORD [Yahweh] your God?(GMR)

NEGATIVE...
To be put behind ones back, means to be rejected. It can also refer to speaking being done behind the back. To break one’s back, indicates to break ones strength. To break the back of the body would mean disabling the entire body. To turn your back in battle speaks of fear and cowardice. To see ones back may indicate that they have turned their back on the Lord and refuse to hear His word. It would indicate rebellion and deception.

To turn your back on the Lord speaks of rebellion and of going along the opposite road to righteousness.

Speaking of rebellion:

Jeremiah 8:5 "Why [then] is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return." (GMR)

Speaking of turning your back on God:

1 Samuel 15:11 It repents me that I have set up Saul [to be] king: for he is turned back from following me, and has not performed my commandments. And it grieved Samuel; and he cried to the LORD [Yahweh] all night.(GMR)

BADGER

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

A badger in the biblical era was used for it's skin. It's hide was used to make the tent for the tabernacle in the wilderness as well as the covering within the tabernacle. It speaks of wealth and prosperity.

Exodus 36:19 And he made a covering for the tent [of] rams' skins dyed red, and a covering [of] badgers' skins above [that].(GMR)

Ezekiel 16:10 I clothed you also with embroidered work, and shod you with badgers' skin, and I girded you about with fine linen, and I covered you with silk.(GMR)

BAG

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
A bag often represents finance and provision in the scriptures. Bags were used for money and the shepherd had a shepherd’s bag. This was the kind of bag David used to put his stones into when confronting Goliath.

Proverbs 7:20 "He has taken a bag of money with him, [and] will come home at the appointed day." (GMR)

NEGATIVE...
A bag with holes has a very bad connotation. It refers to loss and theft. This would indicate that a curse is prevalent in your life. It means that no matter how hard you work or how much you earn, it seems to slip through your fingers. Such a curse is often generational or a result of direct sin in your life, which has opened the door to the enemy.

Haggai 1:6 "You have sown much, and bring in little; you eat, but you have not enough; you drink, but you are not filled with drink; you clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earns wages earns wages [to put it] into a bag with holes." (GMR)

BAKE / Bakes / Baker

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
To bake bread, means to prepare and make it ready for eating. Raw dough would indicate a ministry or a people that is not yet mature. To bake that dough would mean to prepare and ready such a person or ministry. We saw this once in the spirit, where the Lord showed us dough and told us that we must go and shape and make ready His people!

Note: to prepare the dough, it needs to pass through the fire (See: Fire).

Dough speaks also of those things that we own and are assets. Consider the following passages:

Ezekiel 44:30 And the first of all the firstfruits of all [things], and every oblation of all, of every [sort] of your oblations, shall be the priest's: you shall also give to the priest the first of your dough, that he may cause the blessing to rest in your house.(GMR)

Numbers 15:21 Of the first of your dough you shall give to the LORD [Yahweh] a heave offering in your generations.(GMR)

NEGATIVE...
Seeing a bowl of uncooked dough could also be a warning to watch out for the leaven. Jesus says it well in:

Matthew 16:6 "Then Jesus said to them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees." (GMR)  

In this case, leaven is seen as legalism, works and false teaching. Just one part of leaven, leavens the whole dough.

The following passage speaks of dough that is not leavened. In this context it speaks of not completing a task and following through due to laziness or sin:

Hosea 7:4 They [are] all adulterers, as an oven heated by the baker, [who] ceases from raising after he has kneaded the dough, until it be leavened.(GMR)

BALANCES / Balance
Used for weighing produce and money in biblical times.

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
We often see balances in the spirit which have swung to our favor. Often as we have trusted the Lord for a miracle, we will see the balances swung in our favor, indicating that our answer is on it's way! To be judged correctly is to see the balances at an equilibrium or to have them weighed in your favor. Balances being swung to your favor also speaks of favor, prosperity and provision.

Speaking of being judged:

Job 31:6 Let me be weighed in an even balance, that God may know my integrity.(GMR)

Speaking of justice:

Proverbs 16:11 A just weight and balance [are] the LORD [Yahweh]'S: all the weights of the bag [are] his work.(GMR)

Speaking of provision:

Leviticus 19:36 Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall you have: I [am] the LORD [Yahweh] your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.(GMR)

NEGATIVE...
To see a balance means to be judged. In the case of Belshazzar, his judgment was not so positive:

Daniel 5:27 "TEKEL; You are weighed in the balances, and are found wanting." (GMR)

Balances swung against you have a negative connotation and either represent sin in your life or indicate that you have great odds going against you.

BALDNESS / Bald / Hairless

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
Baldness is seldom positive, but in a positive context, it can speak of mourning. Of a heart that is contrite before the Lord and repentant.

Isaiah 22:12 And in that day did the Lord GOD of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth:(GMR)

NEGATIVE...
Baldness has mostly a negative connotation and speaks of shame, being uncovered and exposed. To dream of being bald speaks of being exposed. If you are a woman and you dream of being bald, this would be negative because in scripture your hair speaks of glory and for it to be shaved off, would indicate shame and losing the glory the Lord has given you.

The priests of Baal also shaved their heads as part of their cult.

Speaking of demon worship:

Amos 8:10 "And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only [son], and the end of it as a bitter day." (GMR)  

Speaking of shame:

Ezekiel 7:18 They shall also gird [themselves] with sackcloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame [shall be] upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads.(GMR)

BALL

Definition For:
DREAMS

POSITIVE...
A ball is a childhood toy. In a positive context, it represents childhood joys and fun. It would represent something from your childhood that brought pleasure and peace.

NEGATIVE...
In an internal dream, seeing a ball in a negative context, it would mean that you are being tossed from here to there and are not on a solid foundation..

Definition For:
VISIONS

NEGATIVE...
If seen in a vision, a ball represents one who is being tossed to and from by the enemy. Perhaps the person in question has been in confusion or has been trying to do many things at once. Balls are easily tossed and it would also mean that you are not secure in your position in Christ, because the enemy is able to buffet you easily.

Isaiah 22:18 "He will surely violently turn and toss you [like] a ball into a large country: there shall you die, and there the chariots of your glory [shall be] the shame of your lord's house." (GMR)

BALM / Balsam

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
To see the healing balm in vision means that the Holy Spirit is bringing healing to hurts. Often when I have ministered inner healing I have seen the Lord rub a healing balm on a heart that is cut and torn. As the balm is rubbed in, the wounds and cuts are healed.

Jeremiah 51:8 "Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed: howl for her; take balm for her pain, if so be she may be healed." (GMR)

NEGATIVE...
To have a fly in the balm means that the medicine is ruined and brings harm instead of good. The smell is unpleasant and instead of bringing healing, it brings harm instead.

Ecclesiastes 10:1 "Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth an unpleasant odour: [so does] a little folly to him that has a reputation for wisdom [and] honour." (GMR)

BAND
Band of Iron and Brass put around the stump of a tree.

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

NEGATIVE...
This has a negative connotation. To put a band around the stump of a tree means to stunt and prevent further growth. It speaks of a spiritual lack of growth. It speaks of being held back and being prevented from progressing in what the Lord has for you. To place such a band upon a person or ministry, would mean to curse it and prevent it from further progress. Nebudchanezzar was hindered and cursed in this way:

Daniel 4:15 "Nevertheless leave the stump of his roots in the earth, with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and [let] his lot [be] with the beasts in the grass of the earth:" (GMR)

BANQUET

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
A banquet in vision speaks of the Lord’s favor. It speaks of a place of blessing, abundance and royalty. Not just providing a need, but rather providing the desire of the heart in excess of any need. David says here in:

Psalms 23:5 "You arrange a kings banquet before me in the presence of my enemies: you anoint my head with oil; my container is overflowing." (GMR) .

NEGATIVE...
If seen in a vulgar sense, a banquet can be seen as gluttony, excess and evil intentions, Peter says it well in:

1 Peter 4:3 "For the [chronos] time past of [our] life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:" (GMR).

BAPTISM

Strong’s Definition:
907
     baptizo (bap-tid’-zo);
from a derivative of 911; to immerse, submerge; to make overwhelmed (i.e. fully wet); used only (in the N. T.) of ceremonial ablution, especially (technically) of the ordinance of Christian baptism:
KJV—Baptist, baptize, wash.

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
Baptism speaks of leaving the old behind. The being raised up in new life. To put away the old. To let go of the past..

NEGATIVE...
Paul makes us aware also of the baptism unto death. Death to the flesh is painful and is brought about by means of the Cross and by Fire (See: Altar, Cross, Fire)

Romans 6:4 "Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that just as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of [zoe] life." (GMR)

BAREFOOT

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
To be barefoot, or to see one barefoot, speaks of humility and transparency. To be a servant. It means that the person in question has nothing to hide. This is apparent in the account where Moses was told to take his shoes off holy ground:

Exodus 3:4 And when the LORD [Yahweh] saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here [am] I.
5 And he said, Draw not near here: put off your shoes from off your feet, for the place whereon you stand [is] holy ground.(GMR)

NEGATIVE...
In a negative light, to be barefoot means to be exposed and unprotected. It also speaks of mourning, vulnerability and poverty.

Mourning: 2 Samuel 15:30 "And David went up by the ascent of [mount] Olivet, and wept as he went up, and had his head covered, and he went barefoot:" (GMR)

Poverty: Isaiah 20:4 So shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptians prisoners, and the Ethiopians captives, young and old, naked and barefoot, even with [their] buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Egypt.(GMR)

BARN

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
A full barn or storehouse always speaks of blessing and prosperity in accordance with the promises of the Lord. See:

Deuteronomy 28:8 "The LORD [Yahweh] shall command the blessing upon you in your storehouses, and in all that you set your hand to; and he shall bless you in the land which the LORD [Yahweh] your God is giving you." (GMR)

We have often seen the storehouse of the Lord in the spirit and it is overflowing with every good thing and the fulfillment of every need known to man. There is no lack in the Kingdom of Heaven and when we have seen His heavenly storehouse, it contains gold, gems and much provision!

NEGATIVE...
The enemy also steals from the believer and often in the spirit I have seen myself go into Satan's kingdom and take back what he has stolen. I have seen his storehouse also, in the spirit and two doorkeepers on either side of the entrance usually guard it. At the name of Jesus the thief that is found will return seven fold. What Satan has stolen and what the enemy’s children earn, is to be put in the hands of the righteous i.e. in the hands of every believer.

Job 27:16 "Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare clothing as the clay;
17 He may prepare [it], but the just shall put [it] on, and the innocent shall divide the silver."
(GMR)

BARNABAS

Definition For:
VISIONS

POSITIVE...
Barnabas was the one who introduced Paul to the disciples when they were doubted his salvation. He is known as:

Acts 4:36 "And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, [and] of the country of Cyprus," (GMR)

Barnabas was an encourager and once he had mentored Paul, he took Mark under his wing when Paul and he separated.

BARREL

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
A barrel has the same meaning as Barn or Storehouse, but simply contains a smaller measure of blessing.

Speaking of the Lord's provision:

1 Kings 17:16 [And] the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD [Yahweh], which he spoke by Elijah.(GMR)

See also: Barn

BARS / Bar

Definition For:
DREAMS

NEGATIVE...
Bars of a prison always have a negative connotation. It speaks of bondage, loss of freedom and being trapped. Often someone places themselves behind bars for protection from rejection. By putting up these bars or ‘walls’ they feel secure. I have not ever seen a positive image for a bar or prison, for Christ came to set us free and not to keep us in bondage. We are bond-slaves - slaves willing to remain. We are not forced to remain.

Speaking of being oppressed:

Jonah 2:6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars [was] about me for ever: yet have you brought up my life from corruption, O LORD [Yahweh] my God.(GMR)

Definition For:
VISIONS

POSITIVE...
A bar can speak of strength.
We have seen the Lord give someone a golden bar that looked similar to a baton. It spoke of being called of the Lord and of being used by Him. It can speak also of the Lord giving you strength and can be a symbol of blessing:

Psalms 147:13 For he has strengthened the bars of your gates; he has blessed your children within you.
14 He makes peace [in] your borders, [and] fills you with the finest of the wheat.(GMR)

NEGATIVE...
A prison or bars speak of captivity by sin, oppression from the enemy or by personal choice. As Christians we are to speak the good news to free those in bondage. This bondage may be to sin, past hurts, demonic oppression or fear.

Often in counseling someone who is under bondage from past hurts I see them as that hurt child, having shut themselves up in a prison to defend themselves from further hurt. Unfortunately by hiding in this way, they also prevent the Lord from reaching in and so they need to be healed and led out of those walls. As I lead that person out of that prison, in the spirit, the Lord leads them to an open meadow where He holds and lifts them into His arms.

This is our mandate as believers:

Isaiah 61:1 "The Spirit of the Lord GOD [is] upon me; because the LORD [Yahweh] has anointed me to preach good news to the meek; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to [those that are] bound;" (GMR)

BASEMENT
A lower division of a home or building.

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE...
When dreaming of a basement, it usually represents a ‘going down’ or a time of humbling. The saying ‘promotion begins at the basement’ is still very prevalent in the spiritual life today. Paul called himself ‘the scum of the earth’ and if you are looking to the Lord for promotion or to move on to the next phase in your spiritual life, be sure that the promotion begins in the basement!

I remember one case where I was giving direction to someone with regards to their ministry. I saw them standing proud. Then by the floor, I saw this small door that led to their promotion. The message was very clear – before they could enter into the next phase of their ministry, they would be humbled first. True enough, not long after that revelation, the person in question had to humble themselves to people they had left behind on bad terms with, along with being ostracized in their current ministry position. The good news however is that this person did indeed rise up into that promotion!

Speaking of being humble:

Psalms 34:18 The LORD [Yahweh] [is] near to those that are of a broken heart; and saves those who are of a contrite spirit.(GMR)

BASKET

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
A basket filled with fruit or bread speaks of good things. Blessings and provision. An empty basket speaks of lack and a curse. A good example of this contrast is found in:

Deuteronomy 28:5 "Blessed [shall be] your basket and your store." (GMR)

Deuteronomy 28:17 "Cursed [shall be] your basket and your store." (GMR)

See also: Barn, Banquet, Barrel

BASIN

Definition For:
VISIONS

A basin used for washing, speaks of cleansing and purifying. A basin is not like a bath or baptism where the entire body is immersed, but rather just the feet are washed. The prime example used in scripture is:

John 13:5 "After that he poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe [them] with the towel with which he was girded." (GMR)

As we walk through the world we become contaminated with its ways and its curses. To ‘wash ones feet’ means to cleanse yourself of the curses and sin you passed through for that day. This should be a daily activity for a Christian.

See also: Baptism, Bath, Water

BATH

Definition For:
VISIONS

POSITIVE...
Dreaming of a bath speaks of a complete cleansing, holiness and sanctification. While cleansing with water from a basin simply washes the feet, to immerse oneself in a bath speaks of a total cleansing. This is much like water baptism where the old is left behind and the new brought to life.

Speaking of holiness:

Numbers 8:6 Take the Levites from among the children of Israel, and cleanse them.
7 And thus shall you do to them, to cleanse them: Sprinkle water of purifying upon them, and let them shave all their flesh, and let them wash their clothes, and [so] make themselves clean.(GMR)

Speaking of redemption:

Ezekiel 36:25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.(GMR)

Sanctification:

Ephesians 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the [rhema] word,(GMR)

NEGATIVE...
I was given a dream to interpret once, where a lady dreamed that she was made to bath in a bathtub of vile water. She shared that as a child she was made to wash the bathtub of her father, who due to his illness did not bath often, so when he did, left the most vile water and ring around the tub.

This dream indicated that there were things in her past that she was not free from. The rejection and hurts from the past (the filth) was still with her and she was not free to move on now in a new cleansed life. This led to a ministry of inner healing and dealing with the bitterness in her heart, with the Lord raising her up into a new confidence in herself in Christ.

In this case repentance from bitterness was necessary, because by retaining the bitterness, it was dirty in the eyes of the Lord.

Speaking of repentance:

James 4:8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse [your] hands, [you] sinners; and purify [your] hearts, [you] double minded.(GMR)

2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.(GMR)

BATS / Bat
Unclean animals.

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

NEGATIVE...
Bats are creatures of the night and often represent the works of the enemy in visions. I have often seen bats in vision and they are usually tied to occultic oppression. Once in ministry, I saw in the spirit a certain person encased in the wings of a bat. As it turned out, they had been in contact with someone from a false religion and had been suffering a ‘lashback’ from ministering to them.

There are other animals that have a negative connotation, they are listed here in:

Leviticus 11:13 "And these [are they which] you shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they [are] an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray,…
19 And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat."
(GMR)

BEAR
The bear almost always speaks of a curse operating with destruction. The bear is known to tear at its pray and is a violent creature. In scripture it is used in a negative light although the one quality it is given is that it protects its young.

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
The bear is seen as one who protects its young. Speaking of a desire to protect.

2 Samuel 17:8 "For, said Hushai, you know your father and his men, that they [be] mighty men, and they [be] chafed in their minds, as a bear robbed of her whelps in the field: and your father [is] a man of war, and will not lodge with the people." (GMR)

NEGATIVE...
The bear speaks of an attack of destruction from Satan who is known as the devourer. When I see a bear in the spirit I know that the person in question is under a curse and that the enemy is causing things in their life to be destroyed.

2 Kings 2:24 "And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD [Yahweh]. And there came out two she bears out of the wood, and mauled forty two of the children." (GMR)

BEARD

Definition For:
DREAMS

POSITIVE...
Dreaming of a beard represents the appearance you give others. If the beard it shaved, it means then that you will be showing a ‘new face’ to the world. To remove or grow a beard changes the entire look of a person. The shaving of one’s beard could mean putting some things away and facing the world afresh.

NEGATIVE...
If a woman dreams of having a beard, this would have a negative connotation as this would be a disgrace to her. It would mean that she is trying to put on the appearance of being a man and perhaps letting go of her femininity.

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
A beard in scripture spoke of strength and favor. For a man to have a long beard was considered a sign of favor from the Lord.

NEGATIVE...
To have one’s beard shaved off was a sign of disgrace and humility. Shaving of the beard was often done in mourning to show extreme grief. David’s servants were made a disgrace by their beards being shaved off:

2 Samuel 10:5 "When they told [it] to David, he sent to meet them, because the men were greatly ashamed: and the king said, Wait at Jericho until your beards be grown, and [then] return." (GMR)

BLACK

Definition For:
DREAMS

POSITIVE and NEGATIVE...
When dreaming about a black person, the first thing you must do is identify how you feel about this race in the natural. If you are black yourself, then dreaming of a black person might have a good connotation. I do remember one time though when a black man I knew had grown up feeling uncomfortable around blacks (not having been exposed to other blacks when growing up) so when he dreamed of a black person, it had a negative connotation to him.

So identify how you feel about black normally and it will help you identify what they could mean in your dreams.

Definition For:
VISIONS

NEGATIVE...
Black is very seldom positive in a vision. Unless referring to a specific person, culture or race, the color black almost always speaks of darkness and the work of the enemy. You might see a person bound by black chains. Perhaps you will see a person in a dark room. All of these are negative. When ministering personally I have often seen a person covered by a black, death shroud in the spirit. When I see this, then I know they are under demonic attack.

I have also seen cities with a dark cloud over them. When I see this, then I know I am seeing the work of the enemy in that area.

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
While dreaming of being in a black room or being surrounded by black would have a negative connotation, you might dream of a black person. Once again if you feel comfortable around black people or are black yourself, then that person would mean something good in your dreams.

Being black also speaks of being different or standing out – but in a positive sense. Consider the following passages:

Song of Solomon 1:5 "I [am] black, but attractive, O you daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.
6 Do not look down on me, because I [am] black, because the sun has beaten down me: my mother's children were angry with me; they made me the keeper of the vineyards; [but] my own vineyard I have not kept." (GMR)

NEGATIVE...
The color black will more likely be negative than positive in a dream or vision. Here are some scriptures to consider:

Speaking of oppression:

Job 30:30 "My skin is black upon me, and my bones are burned with heat." (GMR)

Speaking of mourning:

Jeremiah 4:28 "For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken [it], I have purposed [it], and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it." (GMR)

Speaking of Sin:

Luke 11:34 "The light of the body is the eye: therefore when your eye is single, your whole body also is full of light; but when [your eye] is evil, your body also [is] full of darkness.
35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in you be not darkness.
36 If your whole body therefore [be] full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle does give you light."
(GMR)

1 Corinthians 4:5 "Therefore judge nothing before the [kairos] time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make visible the counsels of the hearts: and then every man shall receive praise from God." (GMR)

Speaking of the Antichrist:

Daniel 8:23 "And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up." (GMR)

Speaking of the work of the enemy:

Ephesians 6:12 "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against authorities, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]." (GMR)

Colossians 1:13 "Who has delivered us from the authority of darkness, and has translated [us] into the kingdom of the Son of his [agape] love:" (GMR)

BLUE

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

Blue is almost always a positive picture in dreams and visions – representing the Kingdom of heaven.

POSITIVE...
Blue is a royal color in the scriptures and you will find it mentioned many times in the tabernacle of Moses. Blue linen, lace and cloths were used to cover the many instruments in the tabernacle and this color represents the Kingdom of Heaven. It speaks of the throne room of the Lord. If you were to see a vehicle in blue, it would mean that your ministry has been given to you by the Lord. It is a representation of the Kingdom of God. Blue clothing also speaks of representing the Kingdom of God. If you saw someone dressed in blue, it would mean that they have been sent by the Lord as a representative of the Kingdom of God. In other words, they are called to the ministry.

Some scriptures to meditate on:

Exodus 26:1 "Moreover you shall make the tabernacle [with] ten curtains [of] fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: [with] cherubims of cunning work shall you make them." (GMR)

Being called to ministry:

Exodus 28:31 "And you shall make the robe of the ephod all [of] blue." (GMR)

Exodus 39:21 "And they bound the breastplate by his rings to the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it might be above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate might not be loosed from the ephod; as the LORD [Yahweh] commanded Moses.
22 And he made the robe of the ephod [of] woven work, all [of] blue.
23 And [there was] a hole in the midst of the robe, as the hole of a habergeon, [with] a band round about the hole, that it should not rend." (GMR)

NEGATIVE...
The only time you might see the color blue in a negative light is when it refers to bruising as in wounds and pain. Yet even in this a bruise in the natural indicates a healing that is taking place beneath the skin. So while the bruise indicates a past hurt, it also represents a healing process.

Speaking of hurt and healing:

Proverbs 20:30 "As the blueness of a bruise cleanses away evil: so [do] blows the rooms of the inward man." (GMR)

Speaking of hurt:

Jeremiah 30:12 "For thus says the LORD [Yahweh], Your bruise [is] incurable, [and] your wound [is] grievous." (GMR)
