Biblical Meaning of House In Dreams


Biblical Dream Meaning of House

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. 

We can decipher the meaning of our house dreams by taking various factors into consideration. These factors include things like the structure, condition and appearance of the house. 

Biblical Dream Meaning of House Apartment


A house in dreams often depicts the dreamer's life. Recall these words that came directly out from 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 described man as being like a house. So we can safely apply this to our house dream interpretations. 

The condition of the house in dreams often point to the present state of a person. In most cases, it reflects the person's current spiritual state. House dreams should be taken very seriously. 

Biblical Meaning Of New House In Dreams


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

If you saw this dream, know that God is about to do something new in your life that will bring you 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. 

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. 

It 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), and press on! 

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 dream about seeing yourself cleaning your house often means that sanctification is taking place in your 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 dirty 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 life. 

To see such dreams are often a pass mark from Heaven, just to encourage the dreamer that they are on the right track and should not stop doing what they are doing. 

Untidy House Dream Meaning


To dream about your house looking so unkempt is often a warning and a revelation that the dreamer must take very seriously. 

To see 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. 

It is funny but at the same time saddening, that some people never think that demons can live in the same apartment with them, if they or someone else opened the door for those demons. 

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 one had a dream where they saw that their house was dirty or untidy, but in waking life it is very neat, this tells that there is sinfulness in the dreamer's life. This needs to be repented of and forsaken. 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! 

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! 

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

Living In A House With Leaky Roof 


This sort of dreams often come in the following ways:

  • You had a dream and 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. 

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 wakeup call for the dreamer to stop neglecting 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 and progress of the dreamer. 

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