Dreams & Visions – Revised and Updated
By: Jane Hamon

About The Book
Dreams and Visions CoverIn this revised and updated edition of her groundbreaking book, author and pastor Jane Hamon unravels the scriptural meanings of dreams and visions, helping you discern when a dream is prophetic direction for your life–and what to do about it.

This concise, practical guidebook will lead you through biblical texts, demystifying the language of dreams and visions so you can communicate with God in an important new way.

Review
God declared through the prophet Joel, “Your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions” (Joel 2:28). Then on the Day of Pentecost while addressing the crowd Peter echoed the same words as he described for those gathered what God was doing. In Acts 2:17 Peter declares “In the last days, God says, ‘I will pour my Spirit on all people. You sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams'”.

In the Foreword of this book Dutch Sheets writes, “We believers should anticipate God speaking to us through prophetic dreams and visions. He is ready, by His Spirit, to satisfy the yearnings of the human race for relationship with and direction from Him”. But the question remains, in the midst of dreams and visions, how do we interpret them? What do we do with them? Is every dream and vision from God? The questions are many and through the years I’ve encountered many of these questions as I’ve not only studied the subject, but taught on the subject as well.

There are many books on the subject of dreams and visions but in my opinion, this book by Jane Hamon stands tall above them all. My 2000 edition of this book is well worn, extensively highlighted and contains many dog-eared pages. With that in mind, I’m thrilled to see this updated and revised version of an already best seller on the subject of dreams and visions. From the opening chapter of God’s Purpose for Dreams and Visions through to the final chapter A Charge to Dreamers, Jane Hamon covers a wide array of topics when it comes to dreams and visions and how God uses them to talk with His people today.

But, Dreams & Visions is much more than just a “how to book” or even a book defining imagery, symbols and messages from God. This book also covers topics such as spiritual dreams and visions, natural dreams and visions and false dreams and visions. It even contains chapters on knowing the source of your dreams and an entire chapter discussing what to do with warnings and direction from dreams and visions.

However, what really sets this revised and updated edition of Dreams & Visions book apart from others are not only the questions at the end of each chapter, but the activations sprinkled throughout the book. In true Christian International style, Jane Hamon includes activations enabling the reader to actually start moving forward by the power of the Holy Spirit in discovering what God is saying to you in the area of dreams of visions.

God does indeed speak to His people through dreams and visions. We live in a world surrounded by individuals wanting to know what God is saying through these avenues. But we also live in a world saturated by impersonators listening to the wrong voice when it comes to dreams and visions sowing nothing more than confusion and deception. This revised and updated edition of Jane Hamon’s Dreams & Visions book is a must have for anyone searching to discover what God is saying through the avenue of dreams and visions.

We live in a day when as God’s people we must know how to not only hear His voice, but also know what He is saying. For this very reason, I highly recommend this book for the bookshelves of all believers in the body of Christ today.

Dreams & Visions- Revised and Updated – is available on Amazon.

Enjoy the read!
