Here’s a long overdue update to a topic I haven’t written about in a couple years – dreams of mountains and snow. You’ve most likely already seen that flying has been in many of my blogs but only the kind that involves airplanes. Well… I’ve just had a surprise increase in these kinds of dreams and now there’s even been something I’ve never seen before – unusual supernatural acts of flying that look very similar to the photo I’ve used here.
So here’s what I’ll do… let’s first set the foundation for everything in this topic with the Biblical passages that deal with snow, mountains, flying, supernatural acts and the glory realm. Then, I’ll describe my four recent dreams where all these images showed up and explain the main symbols so you can see if any of these may have appeared in your dreams also. Included are a couple annotated photos and a digital sketch to illustrate what I’m explaining here.
One thing that really helped me several years ago (and at times now also), is to hear about someone’s dream and the interpretation of it. There’s always something new to learn and many times when I get stuck on a dream, a tip from another valid interpreter has helped me a lot. That’s one reason why I felt the need a few years ago to start posting dreams on some of my blogs and then tell about them (both in writing and in my videos). Well… 2,600 emails later from readers – yep – it seems to have been effective!
Before we move on now, if you have not seen my original blog about mountains and hills, check out this link below. There’s a lot in there which will tie in with what you’ll see below, just at an earlier stage of my blog writing…
Mountains – Elevation With God
In the most basic sense, mountains are high above the level of all other terrain on earth. Sometimes, when you are trying to interpret a dream, you just have to back up a bit and remember what is the simplest definition of the object / symbol you see. It really does help to define it in plain language and when you do, that can be the single key you need to put the entire dream in its proper context. And in doing that for mountains, here’s what we get…
The Bible speaks of God being from far above the heavens (all of them) and we know that He met with Moses on the top of a mountain. So, physical and literal height is often connected with God’s whereabouts. We also know from the interactions between God and the Israelites in the wilderness that He is very big. Taking these all together, we can connect literal height with a metaphor of spiritual elevation.
So anytime we’re talking about being in God’s presence, we are going to find references to a high place. There are many verses that speak about this but just two that give this idea are here.
Then the Lord came down upon Mount Sinai, on the top of the mountain. And the Lord called Moses to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up.Exodus 19:20 (NKJV)
For You, Lord, are most high above all the earth; You are exalted far above all gods.Psalm 97:9 (NKJV)
Then, if you follow the logic of God being high up, when we are living according to His prescribed ways, He will then put us in a position that is also described very much like His own location – “high above”.
and that He will set you high above all nations which He has made, in praise, in name, and in honor, and that you may be a holy people to the Lord your God, just as He has spoken.”Deuteronomy 26:19 (NKJV)
So this is a brief introduction to the connection between literal physical height and spiritual elevation and being in the presence of God. If you really want to see more of what the Bible says about all this, just do a word search on mountain/s (like the one I’ve done here) and you’ll see how many times this shows up (403 times in the NKJV).
Snow – Not Just A Natural Substance
Snow and its brightness is compared to, and illustrates, the glory of God. This bright color of white also represents the state of perfection, pureness and holiness that only God has.
His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.Matthew 28:3 (NKJV)
And he said, “Please, show me Your glory.”Exodus 33:18 (NKJV)
Snow comes from “heaven” and can be representative of anything supernatural that comes down from God Himself. Snow also has a connection with “treasury” which can mean armory, cellar, storehouse and even a treasure of resources (see Strong’s Concordance for h0214).
“Have you entered the treasury of snow, Or have you seen the treasury of hail,Job 38:22 (NKJV)
Here again below, snow is spoken in context with things that relate to anything needed as a form of resources and provision (see h3899 Strong’s Concordance for “bread”).
“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater,Isaiah 55:10 (NKJV)
The amount of snow can indicate the weight of glory and the level of supernatural presence of God – the more snow, the more weight of its mass, the more glory.
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,2 Corinthians 4:17 (NKJV)
Combining all these ideas above, what you can see is that sometimes the presence of snow is connected with the glory realm and that has clear links to supernatural provision, resources and wealth of various forms. When the time is right, I’ll give my own example of this so you can see this is factually true.
Skiing – A Paradox Of Physics & Faith
Skiing is an interesting sport where a paradox operates. If you’ve ever tried it, you know that skiing requires you to do the opposite of what your mind tells you. In order to be in control of your direction and stopping ability, you must lean forward (down the hill). The steeper the slope, the more aggressive your posture must be. That means you must focus on leaning forward even more. This is due to a simple matter of physics.
Your center of balance (gravity) must be in a place where you are directly over the center of your skis in order for them to bend properly so you can turn. If you do according to your mind’s natural reaction, you will be leaning back as you go faster or down a steeper slope. It is not natural at first to lean forward because your mind sees things coming at you (and your speed increasing) and it wants to move away from this in an attempt to slow down and avoid a collision.
But… leaning back causes your center of balance to be behind the center of your skis and your ability to control your direction is lost. Turning and stopping uses the center and forward area of the skis. If you find yourself leaning on the back of them, the skis will not turn. Therefore skiing is a sport where you must do the opposite of what your mind and natural reactions tell you.
And in that same way… faith is a paradox. You must do the opposite of what your natural mind tells you based on what your natural eyes see. God requires faith and (from experience) that mostly requires learning to live by this paradox.
(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)2 Corinthians 5:7 (KJV)
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV)
But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.1 Corinthians 2:14 (NKJV)
So now, hopefully you see why skiing is a dream metaphor for operating in faith.
Glory Realm & Brightness
All Glory originates from God and can be represented by brightness (either by whiteness of snow or by the bright blue sky or a bright light, etc). This realm is where all supernatural manifestations are found. Glory realm miracles go way beyond an anointing or a spiritual gift. This is also where marvel powers operate (see video below).
The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.Psalm 19:1 (NKJV)
The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.Revelation 21:23 (NKJV)
When Jesus was transfigured on top of the mountain in front of his disciples, He became extremely bright. This is also the same blinding brightness that knocked Saul off his high horse on the road to Damascus. When God or Jesus wants to show themselves in all their full glory, this is the kind of thing we see…
at midday, O king, along the road I saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, shining around me and those who journeyed with me. And when we all had fallen to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me and saying in the Hebrew language, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’Acts 26:13-14 (NKJV)
So when you see in a dream – bright snow on a sunny day with blue skies, especially on top of a mountain, this can refer to being in the glory and presence of God.
Flying & Supernatural Acts
As I’ve included in many previous blogs, flying can represent being in the spiritual realm, as opposed to down in the earthly realm of the flesh. Flying with an airplane is very different than flying by a supernatural act (like Superman).
Airplanes can represent either just you (no passengers) or they can include others (with passengers). The size of the airplane can be connected with the number of people who are involved. Different types of aircraft metaphorically describe different things as well (military aircraft are generally spiritual warfare, cargo jets are usually business and commerce, airline passenger jets involve many people in an organization or ministry, a small private airplane may be just about you personally, etc).
But flying without an airplane in a dream is usually more rare and is a totally different type of symbology. This can either show that you are overcoming situations in your life by being “in the spirit” (not the flesh), or it can refer to the glory realm and marvel powers.
And He said: “Behold, I make a covenant. Before all your people I will do marvels such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the Lord. For it is an awesome thing that I will do with you.Exodus 34:10 (NKJV)
Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul,Acts 19:11 (NKJV)
He stretched out the form of a hand, and took me by a lock of my hair; and the Spirit lifted me up between earth and heaven, and brought me in visions of God to Jerusalem, …Ezekiel 8:3a (NKJV)
As I alluded above, this glory realm is often connected to performing various acts in your life that completely defies all natural laws. This also speaks to the level of faith required for such things. And that is what you’ll see in one of my very recent examples below…
Finally now we can get into the dreams. These should make much more sense now having laid the foundation above for what the primary symbols generally represent. The four dreams below are just what I’ve received in the last several weeks, but in previous years, I’ve also had several more dreams of snow and mountains. As you can imagine also, many have emailed me with their dreams somewhat similar to these below.
1 – Train to Turkey, but it looked like the North Pole!
November 7, 2019 – I’m taking several trains to different locations and the last one I take is to a part of Turkey where they get huge amounts of snow in the mountains like the North Pole. I’m standing outside there looking at it all in a bright, blue sky setting.
- Turkey = can be a wordplay for the bird (Thanksgiving holiday in the USA which can be linked to the promised land of blessings), also a modern-day muslim country (a land of unbelief / beliefs in opposition to Biblical truths)
- Trains = all the other ministries I followed in past years but only now JMMI brought me into the glory realm and my calling at its highest level (this last train represents JMMI)
- Snow = an obvious paradox since the country of Turkey does not have severe winters and snow as this dream showed (confirming to the need to take the name of the country as symbolic)
In real life, this dream connects specifically with financial matters and ties all these above possibilities together. If I went into some personal details right now, you’d know exactly what I mean!
2 – Business jets flying over snow covered mountains
October 23, 2019 (time: 12:19 / :20 am) – I’m in a business jet (like a Gulfstream) looking out the window, watching something like new military academy (university) students get the chance to practice flying same type business jets that I’m in and I see them making turns near me. Setting is over snowy mountains on blue sky sunny day.
- University students = people in training to learn how to operate in high level spiritual principles
- Military university = kingdom of God where order, rank, structure and discipline is taught
- Business jet = supernatural “business” of God, in the Spirit realm, operating in high level business methods
- Gulfstream jets = known to be one of the top of the line for high speed, high altitude, exclusive, wealthy business owners and long range intercontinental travel (example: G700)
- Mountains & snow = glory realm, in the presence of God, near to God, meeting place with God
- Time = 2019/2020 (personal timeline indicator suggesting this starts now)
3 – Hiking in mountains standing on top of super deep snow
October 23, 2019 (time: 12:19 / :20 am) – I’m hiking high up in the mountains (same place as #2 above) with very deep snow. I have a big long pole (used for measuring snow depth) that goes way down into the snow many feet below me and I’m standing where the top of the pole is just barely sticking out. Setting is over snowy mountains on blue sky sunny day.
[This was like the next scene after the one right above here, #2].
- Deep snow = indicates level of glory
- Measuring stick buried = emphasizes the level and weight of glory (the more snow, the heavier the glory)
- Mountains = high up in the presence of God
- Hiking = requires physical effort, ascending to God’s presence requires deliberate spiritual effort
- Time = 2019/2020 (personal timeline indicator suggesting this starts now)
Each of these two dreams above (#2 & #3) were on the same night and I wrote them both at the same time as indicated. They both had additional confirmations during waking life within 24 hours that confirmed these were in fact dreams about the glory realm and supernatural manifestations that come with that.
4 – Skier jumping & flying while performing supernatural acts
November 16, 2019 – I’m up on a ski slope in the mountains and I see a guy wearing a ski racing suit jumps off a ledge and starts doing huge aerobatic loops in the air, using his momentum from each loop to go higher. He then flies straight away in an upward climbing path higher into the sky and then returns in a big loop. He never seemed to touch the ground but just kept going higher with no wings and no means of propulsion. This was exactly like a Superman-type movie scene.
- Skiing = operating by faith when circumstances are in total opposition to what is seen by the natural eyes (the paradox of physics and faith)
- Mountains & snow = glory realm where marvel powers operate
- Flying without an airplane = supernatural acts, well beyond the realm of “normal” miracles, defying natural laws, marvel & glory realm powers, actions not possible for a natural human (see video below)
In the near future, I expect to tell how these dreams played out and what they connected with in real life. Some of this will be a continuation of what I already spoke about earlier this year and when I’m able to explain how it all came together, you’ll see in a more concrete way how this can relate to your life as well. Check back soon!!
Miracles, Marvels & Glory Realm Powers Training
Now that you’ve made it through the descriptions, dream examples and explanations above, here is where all the training I’ve received is found regarding marvel powers and the glory realm. This video is only one of several in the ongoing series that began in July 2019 and continued again in November 2019. Subsequent to these, many more are planned for future dates.
In this video below, you’ll hear about the kind of supernatural acts that relate exactly to what my dream #4 above symbolically refers to. In future blogs, I’ll have lots more to tell on the glory realm and marvel powers from my own dreams which all relate to this JMMI training that began this year.
David E. Taylor – Training for God’s Miracles & Marvels – Night 2 session
My very strong recommendation – connect with Joshua Media Ministries International and make every effort to come to these training sessions where these manifestations are being imparted. Operating in these kinds of unusual miracles is the “right now” new thing God is bringing on the scene and training is required to eliminate all limitations in your mind so you can operate in this realm also.
