Biblical clothes dream meaning

By estimation, nine out of every ten persons have had dreams about cloths. Dreams pertaining to cloths are very important dreams because they speak about the present conditions of our life. Sometimes, they point to the current state of our relationship with God

Dreams about cloths should not be taken lightly, but appropriate actions should be taken concerning them, depending on what sort they are. 

Cloths Dream Meaning 

Clothing dreams can be understood by taking many revelant symbols in the dream into consideration. Symbols like the color and condition of the cloth. Was it torn, clean, red, black or dirty cloth?

These are very essential in helping us decipher (by the Holy Spirit) the meaning of our clothing dreams. 

The holy scriptures is also filled with verses containing clues to the meaning of our clothing dreams

Let us explore common and prevalent clothing dreams below. 

Wearing Clean Cloths In Dream Meaning

Revelation 3:4 KJV 
Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. 
To dream about wearing clean cloths is a good omen. This often stands for holiness and purity

It is an evidence that the dreamer is in good terms with God and their relationship with the Lord is genuine and vibrant. 

Biblical Meaning Of Dirty Clothes In A Dream

Ecclesiastes 9:8 KJV 
Let thy garments be always white; and let thy head lack no ointment. 
To see oneself wearing stained or dirty cloth in the dream is usually a warning to the dreamer, which requires urgent action on their part. 

Wearing dirty cloths in dreams often symbolize sin or taint on one's reputation. 

It is a sign that the enemy has set up a trap with the bait of sin on one's path. This will most likely come in form of temptations. The enemy might also be plotting about using other people to cause a taint on one's reputation in waking life. 
Jude 1:23 KJV 
And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh
Dreams about stained or dirty cloths can sometimes also reflect that one has fallen into sin and needs to repent and reconsecrate theirself back to God. 

Wearing Torn Clothes In Dream Meaning

To see oneself wearing torn and tattered cloth is a revelation concerning an impending misfortune, Satanic-induced poverty and shame. Such dreams are often an attack against the dreamer's glory. 
Revelation 16:15 KJV 
Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. 
The will of the Lord for us is glory and honour. It is the enemy who wants us to experience disgrace and shame. Such dreams must be seriously prayed against and cancelled.

Wearing New Clothes In Dream Meaning

To dream about seeing oneself wear new and expensive cloths often symbolize elevation, glory, honour and promotion. 

A new thing that will bring great joy is soon to manifest in the dreamer's waking life. The dreamer should pray in agreement and affirm such dreams, because they will definitely come to pass. 
Esther 8:15 KJV 
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. 

Biblical Meaning Of Black Clothes In A Dream

To dream about wearing black cloths is often a bad omen. This goes way beyond falling into sin to also symbolize evil, mourning or occultic involvement. 
Revelation 3:4 KJV 
Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. 
The dreamer should be sure they are still on God's path. Be sure you're not dabbling into the occult (with or without your knowledge). Pray against forced evil spiritual initiations. Stay on course and stay away from anything that may cause you to derail from God's path. 

The dreamer should also war against the spirit of death and mourning. 
Ecclesiastes 9:8 KJV 
Let thy garments be always white; and let thy head lack no ointment. 

Washing Your Cloths In Dreams

To dream about washing your own cloths is a good omen. These kind of dreams speak of an ongoing purging and sanctification in the dreamer's life. 
Zechariah 3:3-4 KJV 
Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel.  [4] And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment. 
The dreamer has chosen the good part by letting go of the sinful habits that stood between them and God. This dream proves that the Lord is currently purging them of those habits so they could enjoy a closer walk with Him. 

Wearing Cloths That Don't Fit 

To dream about wearing cloths that do not fit you perfectly symbolizes walking in the wrong calling, purpose or being in the wrong relationship. It is up to the dreamer to decide what to do about this. 

Prayer Points Against Negative Cloth Dreams

  • Lord Jesus I come before you today, confessing my sins to you. I ask that you purge me with your blood, cleanse and purify me so that I can have a better relationship with you.
  • Holy Spirit of God, purge me with your fire from every form of impurity in the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  • By the authority of Jesus Christ I come against and dismantle every plan of darkness to bring shame and disgrace my way in the name of Jesus. 
  • By the power of the Holy Ghost I frustrate the assignment of every agent of darkness assigned to frustrate my life in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ! 
  • Arrows of the enemy sent against my reputation backfire in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
