Our dreams often reveal our subconscious fears, desires, anxiety, hopes, etc.
Ironically, we don’t even have to be aware of their existence, and if we don’t learn to understand and decode our dreams, we will end up lacking important guidance and advice from our subconscious.
Modern dream interpreters have introduced psychology into dream analysis, which is very helpful. On the other side, the Biblical meaning of dreams should not be neglected or underestimated.
The Bible has a specific meaning and significance for many dream symbols which can be incorporated in our dream interpretation.
Biblical Interpretation of Trees
Trees are often mentioned in the Bible. They are a sign of stability and longevity.
The most important tree mentioned in the Bible, is the Tree of Life, the one which was the cause of the fall of man.
Namely, God had strictly forbidden Adam and Eve to eat the fruit of knowledge of good and evil from this tree, under a treat of evicting them from the Garden of Eden and becoming mortals. The end of this story is well known. Not being able to resist the temptation, Adam and Eve are expelled from Eden.
In Deuteronomy, people are asked not to cut down the trees of conquered cities because they can eat their fruits.
In the Psalms, it is written that “the righteous man will flourish like a palm tree” and “grow like a cedar in Lebanon”.
In Matthew, it is said that all good trees bear good fruits, while the bad ones bear bad fruits. Bad trees should be cut down and thrown into the fire.
