Here’s an odd twist on some common dreams you might have at some point. You’ve probably had dreams about a house or various rooms inside a house, right? Yep. I bet you have. Very common. Each room has a different meaning about your life. Sometimes you’ve probably even had dreams of being in a neighborhood with several other houses. These are all the kinds of normal dreams that have personal messages and it would be great to know what all mean, right? Yes!
Which of course is why I’m writing this today. But what you probably never had was a dream of all this taking place on a… different… (yep) planet?! Keep reading, let’s have a little discussion about all that!
Houses In Dreams
So let’s start off with the basics here and I’ll include two recent dreams that just so happen to make a pretty good conversation piece. Starting with the basics of just simply what a house means in a dream. If you have not seen a blog I did a few years ago, this is a good place to start and it’s still very relevant today. This is where I used a few simple graphics to tell about the meaning of buildings of various kinds and different rooms inside a house.
Rather than repeat all that, I’d like to just have you look at what I posted there in a nice easy infographic format. The most recent dream I had was going up a step from just understanding the basics of what a house can mean. Here is my most recent house dream…
I was looking around the inside of a house and it was completely newly renovated with the most beautiful colors of paint, all different color schemes in each room. Very warm orange, green, yellow, blue, etc. The kind that if I was going to repaint all the rooms of a house, I would not have even thought to do it like that. It was really amazing and very well done.
The colors in the dream looked very much like these below but not this pattern!
So what does it mean then to see such a scene in a dream? Simply put, the condition of a house represents your own condition in spiritual and other terms. When you see a house that is in bad condition, it means there’s a ton of stuff that is in need of “repair” in your life. When you see a house in good condition, it means you are doing well.
To see a house that is newly renovated like I did just recently, means you’ve gone through a total life overhaul by a process of spiritual renewal. It’s the idea seen in the verse below – how you first have to prosper on the inside before it can show up outwardly. That “process“ is what I’ve written about several times about a personal wilderness. Not a fun thing at all but if you really want God to do big things in your life, there is simply no other way to get there but through some very harsh “desert-like” conditions.
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.3 John 1:2 (NKJV)
So this is the basic idea of a house in a dream (again, go back to that blog I linked above for the rest of the descriptions). Next, let’s deal with what a neighborhood in a dream can mean.
Neighborhoods In Dreams
A neighborhood in a dream is a metaphor that speaks of everything beyond your immediate self. This includes the people around you, whether your literal neighborhood or on a much greater scale. Just two verses of many (below) tells who our “neighbors” are. In the first verse, it more or less seems to be anyone who lives immediately near you, like a next door neighbor literally.
He who despises his neighbor sins;Proverbs 14:21 (NKJV)
But he who has mercy on the poor, happy is he.
But in the second verse, it’s very clear that Jesus is widening the scope of what a neighbor means and it includes anyone, regardless of how far away they live from you. What He says here is that your neighbor can be someone thousands of miles away. And this is exactly what I found out a few years ago when I had several dreams proving that some of my friends in a far away country are right now, still my “neighbors“ even though we are not even on the same continent.
So he answered and said, “ ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and your neighbor as yourself.’ ”Luke 10:27-29 & 33 (NKJV)
And He said to him, “You have answered rightly; do this and you will live.”
But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” …
… But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion.
So next time you see a neighborhood in a dream, just remember that God may be speaking to you about those who live right outside your front door, literally. Or He may be speaking of anyone who lives anywhere on planet earth. It’s not about where the people live, it’s about how we are to consider them. And now that leads us to our next topic.
What happens when you get a dream of all the above taking place on a… different planet?! Woah…
New Civilizations In Dreams
Yikes. Ok so tell me you’ve never seen a full neighborhood with houses and convenience stores and even animals on another planet. If you have, seriously, you have to email me and tell me. This was one of the craziest dreams I’ve had (recently, that is). Here’s what I saw…
I first saw a couple convenience stores with a parking lot (same as here on earth) and then a very large pallet of newly built houses was being pushed in right near these stores. These houses were all lined up on several streets in a squarish pattern with parallel streets. Very orderly and with intentional design. What I saw was pretty much like what you see in this photo below. The last thing I saw were a couple small furry animals walking around on the rocky terrain nearby (very much earth-like in appearance).
A few prominent details are worth pointing out because this “Mars” was not like what we know from NASA photos. For the sake of comparison, check out NASA’s newest website for Mars Exploration Program. In my dream, these stood out…
- There was apparently an atmosphere just like we see on earth with a blue sky (the little furry animals were added proof of that).
- The houses looked exactly like the ones we have here on earth, not built for the harsh climate on literal Mars.
- There were roads and parking lots same as on earth which inferred there would be vehicular traffic same as on earth.
So what’s the meaning of this dream? I don’t want to get into too much speculation but there are a few obvious ideas that come to mind especially in context of what I wrote above about houses and neighborhoods. Let’s try this…
Take everything I’m saying above about houses and neighborhoods and go to a whole new dimension. Think about what it would mean if we humans actually established a civilization on a different planet. This would be a major pioneering effort and a breakthrough for all of mankind. Now we’re getting the idea this might have a dual message here – one about a huge personal breakthrough but maybe also one that goes way beyond that.
But perhaps we can summarize this dream very simply all in one single verse (below). When we have a dream like this, do we believe God can do a very strange looking thing? Can we believe Him to do things we’ve never seen before? Do we really actually believe in such things or just talk like we do, and when the time comes to believe, do we prove we really do not believe. Seriously confront yourself on this because I’ve had to go through this process and found out that 99% of the time, most do not believe God to do anything beyond what they already see with their natural eyes. Most would rather just play it safe like a “church person” and anything new and unusual, forget it, they really do not believe.
And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to day.Luke 5:26 (KJV)
Mars / Spiritual Warfare / Global Breakthrough
Might it be this dream is hinting about something I’ve been writing about in my “science dreams” updates? YES, that could be! I don’t know yet. All we know now is it’s very huge and probably goes beyond just a personal message for me. Could it have anything to do with what I wrote about a couple months ago regarding worlds, empires, prototypes, etc? Yes, this is also very possible. If you’re not familiar with what that means, let me recommend both these here…
- Prototype Dream: Empires – Worlds – Movies – Validating Connections
- Space Sci-Fi Movies – Kingdoms – Worlds – Empires: Biblical Truth Hidden In Plain Sight | God DNA
If you look at both of those, it might possibly help put our “Mars civilization” dream now into a much more understandable context and reveal things you may never have considered before. These both deal with God’s plan for all of creation on an eternal level and also show how the Bible and science DO fit together in ways that both scientists and “religious people” can’t figure out and are constantly finding themselves at odds over. (Please take my advice and read those).
Last thing about Mars – most of the time when you see red planet in a dream, it means spiritual warfare. I’ve seen Mars twice before and both times that is exactly what it meant. This comes from the Greek / Roman “god” of war and also because the planet is red and that is connected to blood and war and sometimes victory. See more about the color red at this link. So, most commonly, this is what it will mean if you see Mars in a dream. And if that does not fit the context of your dream, just remember it is a rather popular item in the news these days with the big push by NASA and SpaceX to literally do what my dream symbolically represented.
Ok, we are done for today – just recapping everything here… remember we started out with the meaning of houses in a dream (don’t forget to check my earlier blog on that!) Then we went to the meaning of neighborhoods in dreams. And then we put it all together and went to a whole new dimension where all this appeared on a completely different planet. From the common dreams to the extremely unusual variety.
As always, when I get something new to follow up on this new “Mars civilization dream”, I’m going to be posting about it here. Thank you for reading!
