Dreams have occupied human interest since ancient times.
People started attributing different meanings to their dreams, trying to interpret their future by deciphering the symbolism of the details in their dreams long time ago.
In modern times, psychology began deciphering the meaning of dreams from a psychological view.
In the past, people often interpreted dreams using the Biblical meaning of their dream symbols.
In some cases, dreams can be important messages from our spirit guides and it is important not to neglect them.
Biblical Interpretation of Dancing
Dancing is often mentioned in the Bible. It is often used as a way to praise God and express worship. The dancing described in the Bible was a form of celebration after a major victory.
In the Book of Samuel in the Old Testament, David is mentioned “dancing before the Lord in all his might”.
Some dancing mentioned in the Old Testament was not acceptable to God, and that was the dancing related to the worship of idols. Sinful dancing is also mentioned in the New Testament.
In the Gospel of St. Mark, Herodias daughter is described dancing before Herod who promised her everything she wanted because she pleased him with her dancing: “And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.”
Unfortunately, her desire was the head of John the Baptist, who was killed because of this dance. Lustful dance was considered sinful and condemned in the Bible.
