If you’re wondering if God speaks to us through dreams and visions, the answer is yes. The Bible tells us, “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions” (Joel 2:28).

First it is important to understand that the people under Old Testament Law were under the law because they had made a covenant with God. A “Covenant” is an agreement between two parties who agree to certain terms and conditions that each side must abide by or the agreement is not binding.
