P

PERFUME

Perfume, oil, myrrh and incense often share the same interpretations. Some common interpretations of perfume are: Our praise to the Lord, being beautified, being prepared, being honored, being cleansed.

Perfume changes your emotions and causes you to be drawn to it. It can be a pleasant experience, or it can speak of being caught in a rap.

Referring to how perfume lifts the emotions:

Proverbs 27:9 "Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so [does] the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel." (GMR)

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
A bride was prepared with oils and perfume to prepare her for her wedding night. Esther is a good example of this. This speaks of the Bride of Christ being prepared and made ready for Her groom. It speaks of her falling in love with her groom – which is Jesus Christ.

The scriptures also speak of our praise being as incense before the Lord. That it is a pleasing smell before Him. Incense was offered before the Lord 24 hours a day under the Old Covenant. Our incense is our praise and worship.

Speaking of the love of Bride and Groom:

Song of Solomon 4:10 "How beautiful is your love, my beloved, [my] bride! how much better is your love than wine! and the fragrance of your perfume than all spices!" (GMR)

Speaking of our sacrifice being a sweet smell to the Lord:

Philippians 4:18 "But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things [which were sent] from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God." (GMR) 

Referring to our prayers going up to God:

Revelation 8:4 "And the smoke of the incense, [which came] with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand." (GMR)

NEGATIVE...
The scripture also speaks of the perfume of the harlot and adulteress. It speaks of being captured and seduced into the things of the world. Of being deceived into thinking that you are being offered something good, when in fact it is false and full of sin. 

Speaking of the harlot (world) that seduces. A love that is false and empty:

Proverbs 7:17 "I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
18 Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.
19 For the man of the house [is] not at home, he has gone on a long journey:
20 He has taken a bag of money with him, [and] will come home at the appointed day.
21 With her much fair speech she caused him to yield; with the flattering of her lips she forced him.
22 He goes after her immediately as an ox goes to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;"
(GMR)

PURPLE

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
In scripture purple always has a positive connotation. It speaks of royalty of wealth and prosperity. In the Old Testament only the wealthy could afford purple clothing. So it was worn by kings and those of good repute. If you sold or imported purple cloth, then you were considered a wealthy merchant. Purple was also used in the tabernacle, representing the deity of the Lord. His royalty and Kingship.

Speaking of Royalty:

Esther 8:15 "And Mordecai went out from the presence of the king in royal apparel of blue and white, and with a great crown of gold, and with a garment of fine linen and purple: and the city of Shushan rejoiced and was glad." (GMR)

Judges 8:26 "And the weight of the golden earrings that he requested was a thousand and seven hundred [shekels] of gold; beside ornaments, and collars, and purple raiment that [was] on the kings of Midian, and beside the chains that [were] about their camels' necks." (GMR)

Speaking of wealth:

Ezekiel 27:16 "Syria [was] your merchant by reason of the multitude of the wares of your making: they occupied in your fairs with emeralds, purple, and embroidered work, and fine linen, and coral, and agate." (GMR)

Luke 16:19 "There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:" (GMR)

NEGATIVE...
Purple as in the case of blue can speak of bruising and hurts. See Blue for a full explanation.

Q

QUEEN

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
A queen speaks of royalty and of favor. As believers we are all kings and queens in the Lord. It speaks of our position and authority in Christ. It also speaks of the blessing and favor we have with the Lord because of this position. Of course a lovely illustration of this is Queen Esther, who I often seen in the spirit when ministering to a woman.

When I see this, then I know that the Lord is saying that this person should see herself as a queen and to lift up her head and act like a queen, instead of groveling like a beggar!

Queen Esther:

Esther 2:17 "And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti." (GMR)

R

RED

Red can be both positive and negative. It can refer to blood, destruction and fire. Yet it can also speak of rubies, wealth and royalty (scarlet).

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
Red is referred to as scarlet in scripture and it has a positive connotation of wealth and favor. It also speaks of redemption and of being rescued.

When praying for physical healing the Lord has often shown us the organ of the person that has been infected as either black or purple. As we pray we see it go red in the spirit. When we see that we know that healing has taken place. Consider the following passages...

Speaking of rescue:

Joshua 2:18 "Look, [when] we come into the land, you must bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which you let us down by: and you must bring your father, and your mother, and your brothers, and all your father's household, home to you." (GMR)

Speaking of wealth:

Proverbs 31:21 "She is not afraid of the snow for her family: for all her family [are] clothed with scarlet." (GMR)

Speaking of redemption:

1 John 1:7 "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin." (GMR)

NEGATIVE...
Red can speak of blood, sin and destruction. Consider the following verses:

Speaking of sin:

Isaiah 1:18 "Come now, and let us reason together, says the LORD [Yahweh]: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." (GMR)

Speaking of destruction:

Nahum 2:3 "The shield of his mighty men is made red, the valiant men [are] in scarlet: the chariots [shall be] with flaming torches in the day of his preparation, and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken." (GMR)

S

SIBLINGS

Definition For:
DREAMS

POSITIVE and NEGATIVE...
It is important that you identify what kind of relationship you have with your sister or brother. When you think of your sister or brother what is the first thing that comes to your mind to describe them? What about them stands out the most? Perhaps your sister is willful – she could speak of your will. Maybe she is insecure, in which case she would speak of insecurity. Perhaps your brother is highly intellectual, then he would likely speak of your intellect. Maybe your brother was the kind of person that always protected you – in this case he could speak of the Holy Spirit in your dreams.

Definition For:
VISIONS

POSITIVE and NEGATIVE...
When I see someone’s sibling during ministry, the Lord is usually wanting to address an issue. Often the Lord indicates that the person needs to break links with their sibling, other times a healing needs to be spoken forth. The Lord will give you an inner knowing or impression to go along with the vision, so remain sensitive to the spirit and you will be able to understand exactly what the Lord wants you to do with the revelation He gave you.

Speaking of breaking links with family:

Luke 14:26 "If any [man] come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brothers, and sisters, yes, and his own [psuche] life also, he cannot be my disciple." (GMR)

Speaking of the family of Christ:

Matthew 12:50 "For whoever shall do the will of my Father who is in heaven, that person is my brother, and sister, and mother." (GMR)

SILVER

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

POSITIVE...
Silver speaks of redemption in scripture. To redeem (purchase) a slave would cost 30 pieces of silver. Silver also speaks of the wealth of the world. The riches of man. It was the common currency used in the times of the New and Old Testament.

I remember a time when Apostle Les D. Crause shared with me how the Lord had given him a large silver key in the spirit, telling him that he was to release the wealth of the world to the church. The following passage confirms this vision:

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)

Speaking of our redemption:

1 Peter 1:18 "For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers,
19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect." (NIV)

NEGATIVE...

Silver can also speak of the deceitfulness of riches, relating to money and man's desire for money over the Lord.

Luke 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.(GMR)

Judas betrayed the Lord for thirty pieces of silver:

Matthew 26:15 "And said [to them], What will you give me, and I will deliver him to you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver." (GMR).

SNAKE / Serpent

Definition For:
DREAMS AND VISIONS

NEGATIVE...
Snakes never have a positive connotation in dreams and visions. In my personal experience and in looking at the word, the snake speaks of deception. In personal ministry I have often seen a serpent wound around the head of a person, speaking lies into their ears. I expose it and tell it to leave. It also allows me to minister effectively, because then I can encourage the person and tell them that the enemy has been lying to them and that they do not have to listen to his lies any longer! 

I have seen various kinds of snakes in the spirit. I have seen small snakes, which are more a hindrance than anything serious. They usually come in through association and by reading materials that contain a curse. Depending on the size of the snake in my dream or vision, depends on the strength of the demon. 

I remember once stumbling onto a site that concentrated on interpreting scripture into present day experiences. They had taken the Word and had broken it down according to the current events and events of history. The site seemed innocent enough, even though I did feel a bit of oppression on it. Soon thereafter everything seemed to go wrong in my life. I felt as if a heavy cloud had come on my head and I found myself getting into conflict with my family and everything I touched seemed to break! 

When I asked for prayer, Les Crause saw a serpent attacking me. As I had browsed that site I had opened my heart to the articles there and actually invited a curse into my life! I had received a spirit of deception, but as I repented and closed that door, I told the enemy to loose his hold and the dark cloud around my head lifted immediately! 

There was another time in our ministry where I kept seeing a python in the spirit. Others associated with us saw the same thing and although we knew a snake represented deception, we needed clarification. It was then that Les said that there was actually a ‘spirit of python’ in the Word. When we looked it up, that specific passage referred to divination. It was very apt to what was going on in the ministry at that time because the enemy had sent many false prophets to bring strife and conflict in our midst. As we came against that spirit, things immediately calmed down and those operating in the spirit of divination suddenly left and things calmed down again. 

Here is the reference to the ‘spirit of python’ in the greek and the corresponding passage:

4436 Puthon {poo'-thone}
from Putho (the name of the region where Delphi, the seat of the   famous oracle, was located); TDNT - 6:917,*; n m
AV - divination 1; 1

1) in Greek mythology the name of the Pythian serpent or dragon that dwelt in the region of Pytho at the foot of Parnassus in Phocis, and was said to have guarded the oracle at Delphi and been slain by Apollo

2) A spirit of divination 

Acts 16:16 "And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:" (GMR) 

Other references to snakes - Lies and deception:

Genesis 3:13 "And the LORD [Yahweh] God said to the woman, What [is] this [that] you have done? And the woman said, The serpent deceived me, and I ate." (GMR) 

Speaking of Satan the deceiver:

Revelation "12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." (GMR)

STAFF

Definition For:
VISIONS

POSITIVE...
Depending on the staff that you see in the spirit, you will get a different interpretation. When you see the shepherds staff, this refers to either the Great Shepherd (being Jesus) but most often it is a representation of the pastoral ministry. If I see a shepherd’s staff in personal ministry then I know that the Lord has called this person to the pastoral ministry. Here is an example from scripture:

Psalms 23:4 "Even though I pass through the narrow valley overshadowed by death, I will not be afraid of wickedness: because you [are] with me; your club and your [shepherd] staff, they [convict and] comfort me." (GMR) 

You also get a rod in scripture. It is sometimes a long rod without any shape. When I see this I know that the Lord is referring to the rod that breaks the foundation. In the old days before modern technology, they would break an old foundation using a rod. This is an apostolic function and it involves discipline, smashing old mindsets and templates. Paul speaks of this rod confirming his apostolic authority in:

1 Corinthians 4:21 "What do you want? shall I come to you with a rod, or in [agape] love, and [in] the spirit of meekness?" (GMR) 

Further confirming the rod to be symbolic of the apostolic ministry, Moses carried such a rod which the Lord used to do the many signs and wonders. God speaking to Moses:

Exodus 4:17 "And you shall take this rod in your hand, with which you shall do signs." (GMR) 

You might see a rod that is short and thick. This is something that the shepherd also used to carry with him and he would use it against the wolf! This is called a shepherds club in scripture and when I see this, I know that the Lord is calling this person to a deliverance type of ministry that deals with attacking the kingdom of darkness to protect the people pf God.
