The purpose of listing these symbolic meanings:
The Bible, which we hold as the primary revelation of truth, is packed full of examples in which God has spoken to and through mankind through the use of spiritual metaphors. Many of those symbolic meanings are listed on this site to help you understand that form of spiritual communication. In essence, this is a Christian, Biblically based, online dream and vision dictionary which will help you begin to think in a way that will teach you to understand the meaning of heavenly metaphors and prophetic symbols.
This Seer Dictionary is always expanding, but please email any specific requests you may have.
How to use this information:
You must rely on the Holy Spirit! As Joseph revealed in Genesis 40:8, “Do not interpretations belong to God?” The meanings of colors, numbers, and symbols on this website are given only to help by inspiring your understanding and giving you clues that will help you begin to think in a way that allows you to understand heavenly metaphors. The definitions are nothing more than likely and possible meanings. Each person has their own personal spiritual dialect, so to speak, since God speaks to you in terms you are familiar with. Therefore, you must always rely on the Holy Spirit to give you the interpretation in every situation.
Source of the symbol meanings:
The meanings given are based first and foremost on their use in the Bible or Biblical Hebrew culture. Secondly, they are based on our personal experience and of others that we have known and trust. Thirdly, the inherent meaning of symbols or objects is often true. In other words, the essential character, dominant features, nature, or habit of something is often the symbolic meaning of it. Last of all, they may be based on their symbolic significance in American culture.
Perhaps more important than those four sources is what things mean to you personally. We’ve found that God takes all the people, places, experiences, and things from your own life and He uses them like props, characters, and settings to create a play specifically for you. He uses what you are already familiar with to reveal things to you in a predominantly metaphorical way. Jesus often taught this way using parables, and He still does today.
