What does this dream mean?
It means you’re hungry. Go back to bed.
That should be the response when someone asks about the spiritual significance of a dream about fast food.
John E. Thomas is the operator of ‘Streams Ministries’ and boasts being the protege of dead charismatic prophet, John Paul Jackson. Thomas specializes in ‘prophetic’ dream interpretation. Not content with corrupting the minds of adults, Thomas performs his dream-interpretation parlor tricks for children as well, hosting a program called, “Dream Lab: Kids Edition.”
In the video below, Thomas interprets the dream of a young girl who dreamed about going to Chick-fil-a. Apparently, it was full of spiritual significance.
The little girl dreamed that her sister was allowed to go to Chick-Fil-A, but she wasn’t allowed to go. Just when she was told by her mother in the dream that she could go to the chicken restaurant, she woke up.
Horror of horrors.
Thomas, the prophet, says this dream is about God’s “timing, intercession
Not long ago I dreamed that I bought James White a copier and he was very thankful. I’d like to hear that dream interpreted.
While God indeed spoke to prophets through dreams, we now have the Scripture and a promise that God speaks exclusively through the Holy Bible now that the Apostles and their words have been established (Hebrews 1:1-2).
What Thomas is attempting is no different than the many secular and mystic approaches at interpreting dreams and is not only not exclusively Christians, is
Even in the Old Testament, when there were actual honest-to-goodness prophets, people were warned about the irreverent babblings about dreams by false prophets.
1“If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, 2and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,’ 3you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the LORD your God is testing you to find out if you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. (Deuteronomy 13:1-5).
25“I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy falsely in My name, saying, ‘I had a dream, I had a dream!’ 26“How long? Is there anything in the hearts of the prophets who prophesy falsehood, even these prophets of the deception of their own heart, 27who intend to make My people forget My name by their dreams which they relate to one another, just as their fathers forgot My name because of Baal? (Jeremiah 23:25-27)
For thus said the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the middle of you, deceive you, neither listen to your dreams which you cause to be dreamed (Jeremiah 29:8).
If you have a dream about a fast food restaurant it means literally nothing. Read your Bible.
