If you woke up out of dreaming about a house, you must have been wondering what your dream means. I believe you're in the right place to learn the meaning of your dream

Seeing a house in dreams is common, both among Christians and non-Christians. Different people see different kind of dreams about houses—and that is why in this article, we will base our dream interpretation on some of the following points:

  • Biblical meaning of old house in dreams
  • Spiritual meaning of a house
  • Spiritual meaning of building a house in a dream
  • Biblical dream meaning of moving into a new house
  • dreaming of a house i've never been to meaning

Dreams of houses come to many people, and they come in various ways. Some find themselves building a house in a dream; some see theirself in an old house, while some see dreams of moving into a new house. Whichever the case may be, we must treat every dream of a house we see as very important, since they often convey very important messages concerning our personal life. 

What does a dream about a house mean? 
We all live in houses, so it is not strange to dream about houses. Seeing a house or oneself in a house in dreams often has interpretations that are not far from the dreamer's personal life. Every house dream has something important to reveal concerning the dreamer in person. 

House dreams can either be a good or bad omen, depending on the condition and appearance of the house, as seen in the dream. Was the house newly built and furnished, or was it an old house in a bad condition? All of these should be taken into account when it comes to understanding the meaning of the dream about a house. 

Biblical Meaning Of House In Dreams

By the help of the Holy Spirit, we can deduce the biblical meaning of house in dreams by taking various factors into consideration. These factors include things like the structure, quality and appearance of the house we saw in our dream

If you saw a house in your dream belonging to you, understand that this dream is speaking about you in person. Recall these words that came directly out of the mouth of our Lord Jesus Christ

Matthew 12:43-45 KJV 
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. [44] Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. [45] Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation. 

Observe that in the scripture above, Jesus describes a man as being like a house. So concerning the spiritual meaning of a house in a dream, we can safely apply the same concept.

Therefore, if a person sees a dream about their house, it can carry important revelations concerning;

  • The dreamer's health condition
  • The dreamer's financial status
  • The dreamer's spiritual state 
  • Promotion or demotion
  • A life under attack by the kingdom of darkness

In most cases, the condition of the house we see in a dream will reveal our current spiritual state. This is just one reason why house dreams shouldn't be taken lightly.

Biblical Meaning Of New House In Dreams

To dream about a newly completed or almost finished and furnished house (belonging to the dreamer) is always a good omen.

If you saw a new house in a dream, know that God is about to do something new in your life that will bring about your elevation, great joy and happiness. Your responsibility is to pray, thank Him and affirm the dream.

Isaiah 43:19 KJV 
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.  

A newly completed house can also mean that a person is in their best condition spiritually. Their relationship with God is excellent, vibrant and blooming.

Seeing a new house in a dream often symbolizes a coming breakthrough. It may be in the area of job, finances, marital or spiritual. Obviously, the dreamer is in God's will for their life and has been walking in obedience to God. It is time for God to reward their faithfulness

Seeing Construction Of House In Dream

When a person dreams about the construction of a house, this often speaks of an ongoing work or improvement in the dreamer's life. This improvement could be academically, spiritually, and the list goes on. 

John 15:1-2 ESV
I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 

Remember that, we are God's project in progress. Some open doors, breakthrough and blessings will not be released until God prunes and refines us to a certain level. Sometimes, God's pruning work in our lives could manifest as dreams of house construction. 

Apparently, the one who sees this dream is working on fully submitting theirself to the Lord and growing spiritually. During this process, such dreams might show up. 

Seeing construction of house in dream can also point to a new thing; a breakthrough or open door that God is working for the dreamer behind the scenes. This will require that the dreamer patiently and prayerfully waits for its manifestion. 

Biblical Meaning Of Old House In Dreams

Seeing an old house in dreams often portrays that the dreamer is not in their best state spiritually. But in some other cases, such dreams could be a spiritual attack from the enemy, to deter the dreamer's progress and prosperity.

Living in an old house in dreams reveals the plots of the enemy to make the dreamer poor in future. Understand that God destines us to prosper (3 John 1:2), but the enemy wants the opposite to happen to us. This dream is often a serious spiritual attack against a person's prosperous future. 

Seeing oneself living in old house in dreams points to a future life of poverty that the enemy has plotted to inflict on the dreamer. It's evident that the enemy does not want the dreamer to make it or become great in life. The effects of such dreams should be cancelled with serious prayers

Biblical Meaning Of Building A House In Dreams

If you dreamed about fixing things with other people in a newly completed house that belonged to you, know that this is a good omen. This is often an indication that the dreamer is aligned with God's will for their life, and is working towards fulfilling their purpose, achieving their goals and bettering their life. 

This dream can also mean that the dreamer has put in great effort towards building their spiritual life and relationship with God—and their efforts are yielding the expected results. 

Also notice how far the construction of the building had gone (as this has a lot to tell the dreamer). This reveals the stage the dreamer is at in their progress towards their destiny. 

Building a house in dreams often reveals one's own good efforts towards helping the will of God to manifest in their life. This is always a good and encouraging dream

After seeing such dreams, it is wise to not stop doing what you had been doing that gave you such a good grade with God. You only need to do even better. Continue obeying God and working towards actualizing your goals and fulfilling your divinely ordained destiny. 

It is only in rare cases where building a house in dreams mean that one is actually going to start building one in their waking life. 

Cleaning Your House Dream Meaning

To see oneself cleaning house in dreams often means that sanctification is taking place in the dreamer's life. This is mostly due to the fact that the dreamer has chosen to surrender all to God and has chosen to walk in total consecration

2 Thessalonians 2:13 KJV
But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth. 

If your house is not untidy in waking life, and you were not thinking about cleaning it before going to bed, then this dream speaks about yourself. If such dreams also happen to be recurring, it further affirms that it is all about the dreamer's personal progress on life. 

Such dreams often symbolize a pass mark from Heaven—just to notify the dreamer that they are on the right track and should not stop doing what they are doing. 

Biblical Meaning Of Dreaming Of A Dirty House

To dream about your house looking so unkempt is often a warning and a revelation that the dreamer must take very seriously. If you saw in the dream that the furniture in certain rooms or a room in your apartment are not in their right places is a very important revelation granted to you. Don't joke with it.

It may seem like someone had moved the furniture around, and from their original positions or turned them over here and there. This often speaks of demonic presence in that apartment.

No genuine Christian should be afraid of demons. Command them to return to where they came from. If you saw such a dream, send the demons packing. The house is yours, not theirs. Such dreams could also speak of a possible demonic plan to sow disorder in the dreamer's life. The dreamer should rise against this plot of darkness with serious prayers.

If you saw a dream where your house was dirty or untidy, but in waking life it is very neat, this tells that there is sinfulness in the dreamer's life. 

Isaiah 1:16 ESV
Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes; cease to do evil. 

Sin needs to be repented of and forsaken. Remember, Jesus is coming for a church without spot or blemish (Ephesians 5:27).

Dreaming About Your House With Doors And Windows Open 

To dream and see that you were in your apartment and to your surprise, you noticed that the doors and windows were left open (but you did not open them yourself), understand that this is a very serious revelation concerning your current spiritual state!

Ephesians 6:11 KJV
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  

This tells that the dreamer has in one way or the other let down their spiritual guard, and that makes them vulnerable to the attacks of the enemy. The dreamer is spiritually unguarded. Something might had led to it. 

Such dreams often come as a warning for one to get back under God's protection, before the enemy strikes!

Living In A House With Leaking Roof 

This sort of dreams often come in the following ways:

  • You had a dream where you saw that the apartment you are currently living in has holes through the ceiling and the roof. 
  • You dreamed that you were in your house while it was raining and your roof was leaking. Rain water came falling through the roof into your room. Your belongings were soaked in the rain

Such dreams often point to a serious spiritual attack against the life, provision and finances of the dreamer. The waster spirit is loosed on assignment against their life. This must be thwarted by the power of God through prayer

Apart from this, such dreams could also hint about the fact that the dreamer is slothful and may soon get hit by serious financial crises; if they don't do something about this habit.

Ecclesiastes 10:18 KJV
By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through.  

Concerning the person's spiritual life, such dreams often tell that one has neglected their spiritual disciplines. They have ceased to do the things that will help them grow spiritually and closer to God. And as such, the dream is a wake-up call for the dreamer to stop neglecting building their relationship with Jesus Christ. 

Living In A Mud And Thatched House 

In Africa, mud and thatched houses are often for the very less-privileged. To see oneself living in such a house in dreams often means that the spirit of poverty is at work—against the finances, progress and prosperity of the dreamer. 

Through submission and obedience to God and through much prayers, the effects of such dreams can be destroyed. 

Biblical Dream Of Moving Into A New House

Moving into a new house in a dream definitely symbolizes something new. The biblical meaning of moving into a new house often entails any of the following:

  • A new job breakthrough
  • An actual relocation into a new apartment
  • Elevation and Promotion from the hand of God

If you saw yourself moving into a new house in a dream, understand that this dream is a good omen, and there is nothing to worry about. Pray in agreement with the Lord and expect the details of the dream to manifest in your waking life.
