Dreaming Of The End Of The World Biblical Meaning

Lately, dreams about rapture and end of the world have been coming more frequently, to both Christians and non-Christians alike. 

Seeing a dream about the end of the world can be exciting and at the same time terrifying. Understand that these dreams are not part of some random dreams that people see. Apocalyptic dreams don't come by mistake, they're always a powerful revelation from God.

Dreams about the end of the world are never mere dreams but very powerful revelations concerning the end times. One interesting fact about these sort of dreams is that they do not come only to the saved, but also the unsaved. Many unbelievers have reportedly seen dreams of the world came to an end. But why does God give these dreams even to those who don't know Him? We will explore that in this article. 

After seeing dreams about rapture and the end of the world, many often wake up asking questions like;

  • What does it mean when you dream about the world ending in fire?
  • What do end of the world dreams mean?
  • What does dreaming about the end of the world mean?

Have you ever seen a dream about the world coming to an end? Do you often dream about rapture and apocalypse, and always end up baffled concerning what they mean? It is not by mistake that you found this article. By the enablement of the Holy Spirit, we are about to address the meaning of these dreams and more below.

What Do Dreams About The End Of The World Mean?

Many who see dreams about the world ending always wake up frightened, due to what they saw in the dream. In some cases they are dreams of ammageddon and apocalypse. But fear isn't the best approach to these dreams. It is better to find out what God wants you to do with such dreams. 

Although dreaming about the end of the world is something that happens to both believers and unbelievers, it is important to stress that these dreams do not come to everyone or just anyone. If you are opportuned to dream about rapture or the end of the world, it is a very intentional act of God. There are very important messages Heaven is trying to communicate to you through such dreams. 

John 16:13 KJV
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Before His ascension into Heaven, our Lord Jesus Christ educated us on some of the roles the Holy Spirit will play in the life of a Christian. He said that one of those roles will be to “show us things to come.”

The Holy Spirit showing us things to come means that He will not have us ignorant concerning the activities of Heaven and the plans of God during the end of days. 

Some of these things may be hidden from those who do not know God, but God reveals them to His servants:

Amos 3:7 KJV
Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. 

The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him (Psalm 25:14). It is not in the character of God to allow anything to catch up with a Christian unawares. The gift of dreaming dreams is a powerful medium through which the Holy Spirit conveys to man, revelations of things to come. 

Dream About The End Of The World

We are in the end times and the signs of the end of the world (as they appear in scriptures) are manifesting right before our very eyes.

In the second book of Timothy, we are told about specific signs that will validate that we are fast approaching the Lord's day. Surprisingly, these signs speak more about the rebellion of man towards God and His Word. 

2 Timothy 3:1-5 KJV
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. [2] For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, [3] Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, [4] Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; [5] Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

You'll agree with me that in today's world, very few care to follow God and His Word. There's an alarming rate of rebellion against God in the last days. There are more lovers of self and lovers of this world, more than the lovers of God. All of these signs prove to us that this present world is soon to pass away. 

A dream about the end of the world is not given just for the fun of it. They are given so that the dreamer will take heed, warn those around them and better prepare for the imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Dreams About The End Of The World

In these end times, there are many who are constantly seeing doomsday dreams. This is not a happenstance, but the will of God. It is the responsibility of the dreamer to understand what these dreams mean, what God wants them to do, and act accordingly. 

Dreams about the end of the world often come encapsulated with these messages to the dreamer:

1. It Comes As A Warning

Dreams about the world coming to an end often come as a warning from God. If the dreamer is yet unsaved, God uses these dreams to alert them that time is short. Through such dreams, God calls the unsaved to repentance and to appropriate the gift of salvation before it's too late. 

2 Peter 3:9 KJV
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

If you have been seeing these dreams and you're yet to welcome the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart as your personal Lord and Saviour, go ahead and pray this salvation prayer

If it is a Christian who is seeing dreams about the end of the world, it is often that the Lord sends you this dream so that you sit up and do better in your walk with Him. Start living a consecrated life and better prepare for the imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ. Remember that, Jesus is coming for a Church without spot or wrinkle (Ephesians 5:27). 

Hebrews 12:1 KJV
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us. 

This dream also comes to a Christian so that they can warn others through preaching — and by so doing, get them saved and and reconciled to God. 

Some also have been dreaming of the world flooding. This as well happens to be a dream about the end of the world. 

Matthew 24:37-39 KJV
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. [38] For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, [39] And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Let's be reminded that in the days of Noah (before God destroyed the world by flood) the inhabitants of the earth were forewarned through Noah. Some heeded the warning and some didn't. In today's world, God expects every Christian who is seeing dreams of world ending to do the work of Noah; warn the world that time is short. Let them know what awaits them if they do not get right with God in time. 

2. It Comes To Remind Us To Fulfil Our Ministry 

To everyone who have been called into ministry (but have been rebellious), God may decide to use dreams of the world ending and souls wasting, to remind them of what they are suppose to be doing. 

If you know that you have a calling upon your life but you have been hesitant to fulfil that calling, this dream comes to remind you to sit up and do what God sent you on earth to do. 

Time is short and no one should delay in fulfilling the ministry Heaven entrusted to them. 

Final Thoughts On Dreams About The End Of The World 

Beloved, I believe that at this point you have a clearer understanding concerning what it means to see dreams of rapture and the world coming to an end

Dreaming of the end of the world is often God's way of reminding us that this present world is not eternal. It will pass away with all the ungodliness in it. We must live ready to be part of the new world (with Christ as the ruler) at all times. 

If you've always had these dreams and you happen to see yourself in any of the interpretations above, I implore you to go ahead and do what God expects of you. Always remember that time is short and tomorrow may be too late. 

God bless you.
