Dreams are often full of surprising details from our lives and past experiences. They remind us about things we completely forgotten about and tell us secrets of our own mind.
Dreaming about specific things can tell us a lot about the current condition of our mind and psychological state we are in. throughout history, dreams have been considered as important messages from divine beings that had no other form of contacting us and telling us important things. This is why dreams are still important in so many cultures around the globe that care deeply about their tradition and historical heritage.
Dreams in the Bible had a specific position and were considered almost as prophecies. Many heroes, who were mentioned in the Bible, lived through one form of divine experience through dreaming. In the past, God has been transmitting important messages to people in various ways. In the biblical times, it sometimes did so through dreams.
But these were not unclear and illogical dreams that people usually dream of. When God gave humans to laugh at dreams, these dreams made sense and they contained a clear message. For example, God’s prophet Daniel saw in a dream several beasts who depicted the political forces that had to be changed on the world stage from the time of the Babylonian Empire to our time (Dan. 7: 1-3, 17). To Jesus’ poet, Joseph of Nazareth, God said in his dream that he and his wife and child escape to Egypt. Because of this, Jesus did not lose life in the terrible slaughter of children commanded by evil King Herod. After Herod’s death, God came back to Joseph to tell him that the king had died and told him to return with his family (Matthew 2: 13-15, 19-23).
In today’s article, we are going to see the Biblical meaning and interpretation of wood in dreams. What it represents for us and what we should learn from these dreams. We are also going to look at some of the most important occurrences of wood in dreams and you can even possibly find the exact dream you were looking for.
Biblical Meaning of Wood in a Dream – Interpretation
As you go through the Bible and read it more and more often, understand that Bible is full of symbols and hidden meanings, and understand that the key to understanding Bible texts is the work of the Holy Spirit in you and the understanding of the symbols in which the Bible was written.
One of the Most Important Biblical Symbols that appear in the Bible is wood, and because of the tremendous importance of understanding it, I will deal with the topic of wood as a person or as a man.
Psalm 1: 1-3 blessed is the man who does not go to the council of the ungodly, and does not stand in the way of sins, and in the company of the needy men he is not seated, but has sworn by the law of the Lord and the law of his mind day and night. He is like a tree planted by the stream, which he brings in his own time, and to whom the leaf is not rolled: whatever he does, everything is progressing.
Luke 23:31 “For when they do this thing with green wood, what shall they be with the pure?”
The Bible itself begins with a terrible symbolism, and since the topic here is wood, it will be held by the length of the text only wood. The letter says that there were two trees in Eden. One was called Tree of life and the other was called Tree of good and evil. Of course, they were not two natural woods, because one tree was made by death (separation from God) and the other tree was made by living (Major Fellowship with God). Eating from it meant death. Eating from another meant eternal life.
Of course, eating according to the Bible symbol means “having fellowship with someone” or “getting into fellowship with some”, and the apostle Paul wrote when he explained the idol sacrifices and what it means to eat from the altar sacrificed to idols. 1 Corinthians 10: 19-21 you can read and finish your head if you like.
So eat (enter into communion) with one Tree (person) means death, and eat (enter into fellowship with another tree) means eternal life. So, of course, there is no natural tree from which you can get a Long Life, and there is no natural tree that you can forever be separated from God. In fact, these two trees are Two persons; the tree of life is Christ; and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil is Lucifer = Satan = Devil.
If you think it’s my guesswork, you’ll soon see that it’s just a Letter. Scripture says, “Whoever has the Son of God has a life in him, and who does not have the Son of God the Almighty God remains on it.” So to have a son means to have a Long Life, or by the symbolism of the Scriptures, wisdom of living means to have a Long Life. If Christ Himself was aseptically presented as a tree in the Bible, He even said it to his own words in the quotation above, to repeat it! Luke 23:31 “For when they do this thing with greenwood, what shall they be with the sweet? What is Christ here about? Here the Christ leads to Golgotha and His suffering. He addresses the people who are around Him and says, “When they are dealing with a man who lives in a living life = the life of a woman = a green tree,” he will only deal with dry trees.
The psalmist described what a person looks like in the Word of God, day and night. And he says, “Like a tree, it is planted by the stream, which its kind is brought in its time, and to which the leaf is not poured: whatsoever it is doing, it is progressing in all things.”
