Dream About Jesus, What Does It Mean?

A dream about Jesus may mean more than you think. Join us as we explore the meaning of seeing Jesus in dreams in this article.
Dream Of Jesus

I have heard of people who said they saw Jesus in their dream and they wondered what such dream could mean; or the message that was being conveyed to them through the dream. 

Today, we will address the meaning of this dream from a Biblical and Christian perspective — as much as the Holy Spirit provides the insights. 

Ezekiel 38:23 NLT
In this way, I will show my greatness and holiness, and I will make myself known to all the nations of the world. Then they will know that I am the LORD.

Seeing Jesus in a dream is not something that happens regularly to many people. There are many Christians who have never seen Jesus in their dream, but that doesn't mean something is wrong with them or their salvation. 

There are also many other Christians who have once seen Jesus in their dream. There is another group of Christians who see Jesus frequently in their dreams. 

I understand that seeing Jesus Christ in dreams can be very exciting. But I'll also like to let you understand that these dreams are not for a select few “special people”. God is no respecter of persons; He's not partial. Jesus Christ Himself decides on who He reveals Himself to in a dream — and that can be just anyone! 

A dream about Jesus might come in one or more of the following forms (as reportedly seen by many):

  • I saw Jesus face in my dream
  • Dreaming of walking with Jesus
  • Dream of seeing Jesus in the clouds
  • Dream of Jesus smiling at me
  • Dream of Jesus hugging me

Have you ever seen a dream about Jesus Christ and wondered what it meant? I believe you're in the right place. Follow up as we work with the Lord to unravel this dream interpretation

Note that, if you've never seen a dream about Jesus, it's not because it is impossible to do so. Anyone can see such dreams if they align themselves with God and ask through prayer. 

Dream About Jesus

Although dreams about Jesus are not common, these dreams are also not selective. I've heard of unbelievers who saw Jesus in their dream and that led to their salvation. They didn't do anything special. Sometimes, seeing a dream about Jesus is not by merit but according to God's will. 

I believe that if you happen to dream about Jesus, you should count yourself fortunate. Because no one remains the same after seeing such a dream

What Does It Mean If Jesus Appears To You?

So if Jesus decides to show you a dream about Himself, what exactly does it mean? Except Jesus speaks to you in the dream (which happens in most cases) specifically concerning why He gave you a revelation of Himself, then a dream of Jesus could imply the following:

Jesus Wants You Saved

If a non-Christian sees a dream about Jesus Christ, first of all, understand that Jesus wants them to submit to Him and get saved. Even when it happened that Jesus said nothing in the dream, I believe you could feel His heart without Him having to use human words. 

2 Peter 3:9 NIV
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

When the Lord appears to an unbeliever, His major intention is always to call them to repentance. If you saw this dream and you aren't yet saved, go ahead and pray this salvation prayer to Jesus Christ. 

Jesus Bids You To Draw Closer

Sometimes, seeing a dream about Jesus could be Jesus' way of bidding you to draw closer and have a better relationship with Him. 

James 4:8 KJV
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

From what I know so far, if an individual has been faithfully following the Lord and along the line, Jesus appears to them in a dream, that individual cannot remain the same. Jesus never visits for nothing. The dreamer's relationship with God will definitely receive a supernatural upward push. 

God is vast, no man can exhaust Him and no one can say they've attained the best possible relationship they can have with Him. Do not allow complacency to prevent you from going for more. If Jesus appears to you in a dream, He is calling you to intimacy with Him; into a deeper walk with God. 

For Strengthening And Impartation

At times, the Lord may decide to visit certain people for the purpose of strengthing and impartation. Jesus visits people in prisons, in the hospitals and in places we could never imagine He would visit. He does it for the purposes of encouraging, strengthing, healing and impartation, etc. 

I've heard of people who had a visitation of Jesus in their dreams and ended up receiving the impartation of the Holy Spirit or a spiritual gift from His hand. 

It is simply impossible to get a visitation from God and still remain at the same spiritual level you were before. 

It Can Come As A Wake-Up Call

If a Christian had terribly slacked in their walk with God and had fallen away, Jesus may decide to visit them in order to strengthen and encourage them to pick up from where they fell. 

Revelation 2:4-5 KJV
Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. [5] Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

If your relationship with God hasn't been in a good shape for a long time now and Jesus decided to visit you, see it as a wake-up call and don't take such an experience for granted. He is calling you to rise again, pick up your cross and follow Him till the end. 

It Can Be A Sign That You're Building A Better Relationship With God

If you've been working on improving your relationship with God, a visitation of Jesus in your dream could just mean that God is pleased with you. 

John 14:21 KJV
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

This dream is a sign that Jesus is now closer to you and you are closer to Him. He is pleased with the fact that you are working towards knowing Him more. He is pleased to reveal Himself to you. 

What Does It Mean When You Dream About Jesus Talking To You?

Every dream of Jesus Christ often comes with a message. Even when Jesus does not open His mouth to say a word in the dream, there is always a message attached — that can only be known and understood by the dreamer. 

Hebrews 1:1-2 KJV
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, [2] Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds. 

The Father speaks to us through the Son. The Son may decide to relay the message back to us via the Holy Spirit or He may give us a personal visitation, to deliver the message. This can happen as a dream. 

Dream About Jesus Coming

In these last days, God is giving end time revelations to many people, and in some cases, these revelations may come in form of dreams

If you dream of Jesus coming back, understand that this dream is a wake up call — to you and to others. The Lord gives you this dream just to remind you to stay ready for His imminent return. 

John 9:4 KJV
I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

These dreams come to remind you to get right with God and remind others to get saved and get right with God also. So go ahead and do the work of an evangelist!
