Question
I have a simple question if that's ok...does God still give literal messages in dreams?just  To be clear I'm not asking for any sort of interpretation buts I'm asking because I constantly have these dreams about a particular situation and they always end up the same. is there anywhere in the bible that mentions this subject? If you are able to answer I do thank you for your time and I hope all is well with you.

Take care.

Answer
You are welcome to ask anything, that's exactly why this medium was designed.

I do believe that God communicates through dreams.  There are many examples in the Old and New Testaments of this and there is no indication that He has stopped using this method to communicate with His people.  There are, however, two things to remember: (1) God only speaks to people who have a personal relationship with Him through His Son Jesus Christ and (2) any messages received through dreams must be taken in the context of the Bible.  God's primary method of communicating is His inspired word so anything that contradicts the Bible is not from God.

May God bless.

Expertise

Using the Bible as my primary source and references in support of it, I am willing to answer questions on subjects from the Old and New Testaments. My faith is based on biblical Christianity and fundamental views from the Bible. I cannot answer questions about specific sects or religious organizations nor can I address religions outside biblical Christianity. As a Christian for over 40 years, I have studied many aspects of the Christian faith. My particular interests are in creation and the natural processes of the world around us and how they fit with the biblical record. I believe that all Scripture is inspired by God. I believe that there are no contradictions in the Bible and that the Bible is complete in telling us as individuals how we should relate to God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit; our purpose on earth; and how we should live. Greek lauguage study has helped me gain additional insight into the New Testament but most of my reference work is done in English and, to a lesser degree, German.

Experience

Personal Bible study over the years, lessons delivered in Sunday School settings and messages during organized services, and leading Bible study series have prepared me to be comfortable addressing questions from others.
