F – Symbols (The meanings or the interpretation of most symbols in this dictionary are derived from the Bible)

Face

Revelation 4:7

And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.

Revelation 22:4

And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

Genesis 1:26

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Luke 7:13

And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.

In dreams and visions, the face of a person symbolizes his character or personality. One can “see” the personality of a person on his face like the Bible verses above suggest. Different symbols on the face, like an insect or a sore or facial hair, reveal more information regarding the specific person’s personality, character, and actions. Remember, specific personalities determine specific actions.

Family (Relatives)

When you dream of your family it speaks of your spiritual family. It speaks of people in your congregation or other Christians that you share your spiritual life with. It sometimes even symbolizes your spiritual family that you even did not meet yet.

In some cases dreaming of your natural family needs to be taken literally. In such cases, the dream or vision literally is about them.

Famine

Jeremiah 5:12

They have belied the Lord, and said, It is not he; neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine.

Jeremiah 14:12

When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.

Famine in dreams and visions symbolizes the judgment of God.

Fan (Electric fan blowing feathers)

In a positive sense, a fan blowing feathers all around the room speaks of either a financial provision or breakthrough or it speaks of the lifting of a heavy burden off from a person’s shoulders. The blowing of the feathers, which are virtually weightless, speaks of the relieve in such a person’s mind because of the financial breakthrough in his life.

Fan (Winnowing)

Luke 3:17

Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.

In another sense, a winnowing fan symbolizes separation. A “winnowing fan” is for blowing away the chaff while separating it from the wheat after it has been threshed. In ideal conditions, threshing wheat happens by tossing it while the natural wind carries away the chaff. If there is no wind, then a fan allows wheat to be winnowed in unfavorable conditions. This symbol speaks of people that need to be separated from others because of their spiritual stand before God (a child of God or not a child of God).

Fat

Psalm 92:14

They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing

Psalm 17:10

They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.

Psalm 119:70

Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in thy law.

Deuteronomy 32:15

But Jeshurun waxd fat, and kicked: thou art waxn fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.

In a positive sense, fat speaks of the blessings of God and being energized and warm.

In a negative sense, it speaks of people who energize themselves and who enjoy blessings which do not come from God resulting in them rejecting God because of that.

Father

John 20:17

Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

A father in dreams and visions symbolizes our relationship with our heavenly Father (God the Father).

Father (In law)

In a positive sense, a father-in-law symbolizes a person whom you esteem very highly when it comes to spiritual matters. In this sense, it can be family members whom you respect a lot but it can also be a spiritual family.

In a negative sense, a father-in-law in dreams speaks of a situation where a person has taken an unhealthy prominent role in our lives when it comes to spiritual matters. We have only one father and that is God the Father. It is actually not Biblical to have people as spiritual fathers. It is not a problem to regard the people that you have led to Christ, especially when you are still investing in their lives, as your spiritual children. It reflects on you feeling responsible for them and looking after them. However, this should not be taken too far. You are not really their spiritual father and they should not feel that you are.

In another sense, a father-in-law could be your literal father-in-law in which case this symbol does not represent your father-in-law but should be taken literally.

Father (Dying)

Dreaming of our father dying it speaks of someone trying to stop someone to believe in God the Father. They do not want a person to enjoy a personal relationship with God the Father. They are preventing the relationship. The meaning is similar to us dreaming of a friend dying which symbolizes the end of the relationship between you and that friend.

Feathers

Psalm 91:4

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Ezekiel 17:3,7

3 And say, Thus saith the Lord God; A great eagle with great wings, longwinged, full of feathers, which had divers colours, came unto Lebanon, and took the highest branch of the cedar:

7 There was also another great eagle with great wings and many feathers: and, behold, this vine did bend her roots toward him, and shot forth her branches toward him, that he might water it by the furrows of her plantation.

Matthew 23:37

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

Feathers speak of spiritual covering or protection. It brings relieve in the minds of people when they know that God covers them under his wings of protection.

See “Fan (Blowing Feathers)”

Feet

Galatians 2:14

But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?

Psalm 40:2

He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

1 Samuel 2:9

He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.

Feet in dreams and visions speak of the walk and the conduct of people. The condition of the feet reveals whether the specific person’s walk and conduct are positive (good) or negative (bad).

Feet (injured)

Injured feet in dreams and visions speak of a person who was spiritually injured and therefore suffers spiritual hindrances or even spiritual deterioration because of that. Such a person has been caused to be spiritually inactive because of this condition. There is limited walking or hindrances when it comes to walking and, therefore, limited spiritual progress and growth in the life of such a person.

Always remember to take the difference in meanings into consideration in terms of whether it is the left or right body part that you dreamed of. See “Directions and Locations (movement or location) in dreams and visions (Human body parts)”

Feet (mud on it)

Jeremiah 38:22

And, behold, all the women that are left in the king of Judah’s house shall be brought forth to the king of Babylon’s princes, and those women shall say, Thy friends have set thee on, and have prevailed against thee: thy feet are sunk in the mire, and they are turned away back.

Isaiah 57:20

But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.

A person with mud on his feet symbolizes a Christian who is mixing with the world or who has relationships with the wrong people.

Always remember to take the difference in meanings into consideration in terms of whether it is the left or right body part that you dreamed of. See “Directions and Locations (movement or location) in dreams and visions (Human body parts)”

Fence

Isaiah 5:2

And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.

Psalm 62:3

How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.

Numbers 32:17

But we ourselves will go ready armed before the children of Israel, until we have brought them unto their place: and our little ones shall dwell in the fenced cities because of the inhabitants of the land.

In a positive sense, a fence symbolizes protection, safety and a good condition of restraint. People living in such an environment are safe and they prosper and they are spiritually and physically maintained.

In a negative sense, fences symbolize division and a bad form of restraint. Whenever you see fences in dreams and visions it speaks of groups of people (like different denominations inside the institutional church) or different individuals (in a non-spiritual sense) living or functioning in a state of division. Because of the lack of unity these people cannot work together. It speaks of people with wrong attitudes when it comes to their interaction with children of God or with other people (in a natural sense), who are not part of their group or who do not believe or serve Christ as they do.

Field

Matthew 13:24,38,44

24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

A field in dreams and visions symbolizes the world or the earth. It speaks of the conditions and spiritual realities of the world the church finds itself in. It can also symbolize our personal spiritual situation in terms of our personal sphere of influence.

Fig

Luke 13:6-7

6 He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.

7 Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?

Nahum 3:12

All thy strong holds shall be like fig trees with the firstripe figs: if they be shaken, they shall even fall into the mouth of the eater.

Jeremiah 24:1-8

1 The Lord shewed me, and, behold, two baskets of figs were set before the temple of the Lord, after that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon had carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon.

2 One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad.

3 Then said the Lord unto me, What seest thou, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.

4 Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

5 Thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good.

6 For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up.

7 And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the Lord: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.

8 And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil; surely thus saith the Lord, So will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and them that dwell in the land of Egypt.

Jeremiah 29:17-18

17 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Behold, I will send upon them the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, and will make them like vile figs, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.

18 And I will persecute them with the sword, with the famine, and with the pestilence, and will deliver them to be removed to all the kingdoms of the earth, to be a curse, and an astonishment, and an hissing, and a reproach, among all the nations whither I have driven them.

A fig speaks of the spiritual condition of the nation of Israel. Remember that Jesus Christ said that because the fig tree did not bear fruit that nobody shall ever eat its fruit again. This was a type of the nation of Israel.

Being the “bearer” of Christ they qualified to be the “fruit” of all nations. However, because this nation rejected Christ they lost that privilege. As from the fulfillment of this prophecy, the nations of Israel was not to be considered the chosen nation anymore. They were not to be known as the nation of God anymore although many people still treat this nation as if they are still a chosen nation. Instead, God announced that there will be no more Jew or Greek or whatever nation in the sight of God anymore.

Every nation and all nations will be equal in his eyes. This is the “one new man” that the Bible talks about. In God’s eyes, there is now only the church and the church is now the “fruit” bearer. The church is the true Israel of God. But, in spite of this and according to prophecy, the nation of Israel will repent and they will follow Christ as a nation and that is going to be wonderful. However, that will not change anything for the literal nation of Israel. They will just become part of the church and they will have absolutely no special place or treatment in the kingdom of God.

Fig-leafs

Genesis 3:7-8

7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

8 And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.

Isaiah 64:6

But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

Fig leaves in dreams and visions symbolize self-atonement and self covering. It speaks of people trying to redeem themselves through good works and covering their sins so that people do not become aware of it.

Fig tree

See “Tree (Fig)”

Fingers (Five-fold ministry)

The hands of a person symbolize the organizational aspects of the body of Christ. It is all about organizing, functioning and the handling of spiritual issues in the body of Christ. It speaks of the helping hand of God and that was also delegated to the church. It is about equipping the saints for the ministry and the building up of the body of Christ. Even the finger of God by which Jesus cast out demons speaks of the work of God. See “Hand”

It is the five-fold ministry whose job it is to equip the saints for ministry to build up the body of Christ. For this reason, the five fingers of the hand, which symbolizes the five-fold ministry, are very important in the church.

Always remember to take the difference in meanings into consideration in terms of whether it is the left or right body part that you dreamed of. See “Directions and Locations (movement or location) in dreams and visions (Human body parts)”

The Thump

The thumb represents the five-fold ministry of the apostle.

The thumb is the only finger that can easily touch all the other fingers. This has a spiritual connotation. It speaks of the apostle which is the only five-fold minister who can function in the ministerial gifts of all the other ministers. The thumb is prominent and so is the apostle. An apostle often implements new things and an apostle can handle serious challenges that the church might have to face. An apostle is a messenger from God and he brings a new vision to a church or a congregation. They are anointed to direct a congregation and put the focus on important spiritual truths and principles. An apostle knows how to and does separate himself from people to seek God in prayer and fasting.

The Forefinger

The forefinger symbolizes the prophet whose function it is to point the church into the right direction.

Numbers 12:6

And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the Lord will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.

Psalm 123:2

Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until that he have mercy upon us.

1 Corinthians 14:13

Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret.

Like the eagle which sores high up in the air (symbol for “panoramic” or prophetical insight, especially the revelation gifts), the prophet has a “panoramic” view and therefore has insight into the revelations and plans of God for the church. The prophet gives direction just like a person does when he points his forefinger into a particular direction.

The prophet is led by God and in turn, they “lead” or “point” the church into the right direction. Take note that they do not lead as a positional leader but they lead by “pointing”. It is up to the church to decide whether they want to or will move into the direction that the prophet pointed.

The Middle finger

The middle finger symbolizes the evangelist.

Matthew 4:19

Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

The middle finger has the longest reach which speaks of the evangelist who visits far off places and countries with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Evangelists are often symbolized by fishermen.

The Ring finger

The ring finger symbolizes the pastor.

Luke 24:32

And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

The ring finger speaks of commitment and relationships. It speaks of a person who is committed to walking with a person by sharing life with all its challenges and burdens as symbolized in the Scripture above. The pastor is committed to looking after the well being and personal situations of the whole congregation and each and every person in that congregation. Each little sheep lies close to his heart. Such a person is gifted in exhorting people. They encourage, motivate, help and inspire people to walk the road of faith whilst they walk that road with them.

The Little finger

The little finger symbolizes speaks of the teacher who, like the pastor, is committed to teaching the congregation the true word of God so that each and every member can take up their position of kingship and priesthood in the kingdom of God.

Acts 8:30-31

And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.

Hebrews 4:12

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

For the teacher, the well being of each church member is also very important. These two ministries have similar functions and can relate to each other. They stand together and support each other just like the ring finger and little finger are next to each other.

James 3:1

My brethren, be not many masters (teachers), knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

Finger of God

Exodus 8:19

Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God: and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had said.

Deuteronomy 9:10

And the Lord delivered unto me two tables of stone written with the finger of God; and on them was written according to all the words, which the Lord spake with you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly.

Luke 11:20,46

20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.

46 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.

The finger of God in dreams and visions speaks of the work of the Holy Spirit here on earth in terms of conviction and delivering people. The finger of God is about power and authority. When dreaming of the “finger of God” it speaks of taking authority and acting in the power of God.

Fire

Hebrews 12:29

For our God is a consuming fire.

Isaiah 66:15

For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.

Acts 2:3

And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

Luke 24:32

And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

2 Thessalonians 1:7-8

7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,

8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Fire symbolizes the purification and the zeal of the Holy Spirit. It also symbolizes the presence and the power of God. It speaks of purifying and testing. In this sense, when people find themselves in the presence of God they are being purified and prepared for ministry.

When people are baptized with the Holy Spirit and with fire like the apostles were on the day of Pentecost, they become powerful witnesses for God.

In a negative sense, fire symbolizes the judgment of God. In this sense, it speaks of punishment and accountability. See “Oven” and “Furnace”

Fish

Matthew 4:19

Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

John 21:6

And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.

Mathew 13:48

48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

Fish symbolize lost souls being won for Christ. Fishermen on the sea also symbolize souls being won for Christ.

Fish (Starfish)

A starfish is a worthless creature. For this reason, a starfish speaks of a person involved in worthless financial deals or opportunities or worthless spiritual matters. It speaks of a person living in an unrealistic and fanciful world. Such a person lost track of reality in a financial sense.

Fisherman (On sea)

See “Fish”

Fish tank or similar container

Fishes symbolize unsaved people. A tank or container (various sizes and made of various material) with fishes symbolizes a protected environment where unsaved people are cared for, like a house church or home cell or a church outreach or other facility for the homeless or other needy people, where the potential for these people to convert to Christ is greatly enhanced.

Five

See “Numbers in dreams and visions (Five)”

Flag

Isaiah 13:2

Lift ye up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice unto them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles.

A flag has a similar meaning as “banners” in dreams and visions but in a more general sense. Banners symbolize more specific aspects where flags are more general. In a dream or a vision, flags speak of our general motivation or commitment. We have pledged allegiance to Christ and everything he stands for. We also pledged allegiance to the church. A flag is, therefore, a statement or a declaration for what we stand for. In dreams and visions, it stands for the standard of God and the principles of the kingdom of God. The color and the words or the symbols on the flag will reveal more information to interpret the meaning of the specific dream correctly.

In another sense, a flag speaks of a declaration of victory. It speaks of us celebrating whatever God has done for us. It brings the attention of people to what God is doing for the church. It also speaks of joyfully celebrating and praising God for victory and blessings in our lives.

See “Banners”

Flag (Purple)

A purple flag speaks of celebration because of the love of God for us and for the church. We celebrate this love and usually, the words or symbols on the purple flag indicates what exactly He has done for us which we are celebrating in the specific situation.

Flag (Orange)

An orange flag (the color of fire and not the color of orange objects) speaks of celebration because of the power and authority of God in our lives. We celebrate this power and authority that He has given us. Usually, the words or symbols on the orange flag indicates what exactly He has done for us which we are celebrating in the specific situation.

Flag (Green)

A green flag speaks of the celebration because of the provision of God in our lives. We celebrate this power and authority. Usually, the words or symbols on the green flag indicates what exactly He has done for us which we are celebrating in the specific situation.

Flag (Blue)

A blue flag speaks of the celebration because of the revelations of God in our lives. We celebrate the ability to receive revelations from God. Usually, the words or symbols on the blue flag indicates what exactly He has done for us which we are celebrating in the specific situation.

Flax

Mathew 12:20

A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.

Flax in dreams and visions speaks of the weakness of men. It speaks of people not being able to achieve anything without God in their lives. It speaks of people not being able to handle pressure and not being able to endure trials and testing.

Flies

See “Fly”

Flint

Isaiah 50:7

For the Lord GOD helps Me, Therefore, I am not disgraced; Therefore, I have set My face like flint, And I know that I will not be ashamed”

Flint is a very hard rock and therefore in dreams and visions, it speaks of a person who is standing extremely strong. Such a person does not faint and cannot be deviated and will endure whatever he or she believes or stands for.

Flock

Isaiah 40:11

He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

John 10:16

And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

A flock of sheep symbolizes the people of God. It speaks of this peculiar group of people who are obedient and holy and set aside for our God.

Flood

Isaiah 59:19

So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.

Genesis 6:7

And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

Psalm 29:10

The Lord sitteth upon the flood; yea, the Lord sitteth King for ever.

In a positive sense, a flood symbolizes an outpouring of spiritual and/or financial blessings. This speaks of a major financial or spiritual breakthrough in our lives. This is the type of flood that fills dams, reservoirs, and tanks. See “Dam” and “Reservoir” and “Tank” for a better understanding of this symbol.

In another positive sense, a flood (down a river) speaks of a divine (huge) and an effective deliverance in a person’s life. See “River”, and see “Drowning” for a better understanding of this symbol.

In a negative sense, a flood speaks of the judgment of God because of sin and violence.

Flood/rain

When we dream about rain it symbolizes the results of an outpouring of the Holy Spirit and or financial blessings in our lives. Rain saturates the earth (ground) and (underground storage – feeding lakes, fountains, and boreholes) and it gives the source of life to all plants and other living organisms that are enabling man and all other living organisms to live and to prosper. Water is therefore, the primary source of life and blessings.

The spiritual realm depends on the outpouring of the Holy Spirit just as the natural realm depends on rain. It is the spiritual rain of the Holy Spirit that is the source of all spiritual life and spiritual blessings. Demons and unsaved people have no life in them and are spiritually dead. Unsaved people do enjoy temporary financial blessings. They, however, lose even that when they die.

Floor

Luke 3:17

Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.

Hosea 9:2

The floor and the winepress shall not feed them, and the new wine shall fail in her.

Mica 4:12

But they know not the thoughts of the Lord, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor.

Joel 2:24

And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.

Floors in dreams and visions symbolize earth. It speaks of the ground that gives us the foundation or the opportunity to enjoy prosperity and growth and life. It is the substance that we walk on. In a spiritual sense, floors symbolize the foundation that we live on. Good floors are strong floors and hard floors in terms of living (houses) and nutritiously rich “floors” in terms of agriculture and so forth. Bad floors are soft, sandy, black, and rocky floors in terms of living and deserts and wildernesses in terms of agriculture.

Dreaming of floors in houses (for example beautiful marble floors) speaks of a person who is spiritually strong and beautiful of heart and soul. It speaks of a strong foundation of steadfastness and divine (kingdom) beauty. Floors with carpets speak of a person who wants comfort and ease and convenience and is therefore symbolic of a person who does not want to or is not prepared to experience difficulty in life or in a particular situation. See “Marble” and see “Houses” for a better understanding of this symbol.

See “Floor (First)” and “Floor (Second)” for a better understanding of this symbol.

Floor (Top)

The top floor or the higher levels of a skyscraper speaks of people with either prominent positions or strong influence in the institutional denomination or church or a business.

Flowers

1 Kings 6:18,29,32

And the cedar of the house within was carved with knops and open flowers: all was cedar; there was no stone seen.

And he carved all the walls of the house round about with carved figures of cherubims and palm trees and open flowers, within and without.

The two doors also were of olive tree; and he carved upon them carvings of cherubims and palm trees and open flowers, and overlaid them with gold, and spread gold upon the cherubims, and upon the palm trees.

Matthew 15:8-9

This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Song of Solomon 2:12

The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land…

1 Peter 1:24

For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away.

Flowers symbolizes praise and worship (honor and praise bestowed on God). It also speaks of the privilege to enter into the deeper holy spiritual “chambers” of God. Different colors speak of different types of praise and worship. The color of the flower reveals more details pertaining to the nature or the reason for praise and worship.

In a negative sense, flowers symbolize the fading glory of man. Without Christ in us and the Holy Spirit in us, the little human glory that we have fades and die. We just cannot sustain or maintain glory in our lives.

See “Garden (Flowers)”

Flowers (Desert Flower)

Even if life is dry and hard as in the desert a person, symbolized by a desert flower, keeps on praising and worshiping God. This speaks of a deep love for God and honor and praise and worship for God in a person’s life in spite of hardship and difficulty.

Flowers (Yellow)

A yellow flower symbolizes a person’s willingness to praise and to worship the Lord despite jealousy or hatred or misery. It could symbolize that God wants us to praise and worship Him irrespective of jealousy and misery in our lives. Praising God in such circumstances often changes our circumstances.

See “Flower (Pinned on a jacket)”

Fly (Insect)

Mathew 10:25

It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?

Exodus 8:24

24 And the Lord did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants’ houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies.

Beelzebub is the “lord of the flies.” A fly symbolizes thoughts of disorder and confusion. Just as flies usually gather around rotten things or things decaying, so is a person who is pondering on destructive or negative things. A person thinking bad things are, in fact, eating rotten words (See “Food”).

See “Insects” for a better understanding of this symbol.

Flying (Horse)

See “Horse (Flying)”

Flying (Person)

All sorts of flying (a person vertically or horizontal – not in an aircraft but in the body) is when a person victoriously rises above earthly or natural laws or natural ways of life. This is when a person experiences life supernaturally. Things supernaturally achieved in faith falls under this category.

Food

Psalm 31:9

Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.

Proverbs 18:8

The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.

Proverbs 20:27

The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly.

Ezekiel 3:1-3

1 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel.

2 So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll.

3 And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.

Food in dreams and visions symbolizes our spiritual food. Whatever we eat, in a dream, always speaks of what we place (as symbolized in the dream) in our spiritual mouths to eat. It even goes further than that. The spiritual food that we eat is digested by our spiritual digestive system. In fact, some of the organs making up our digestive system have spiritual meanings. See “Teeth”, see “Stomach”, see “Liver”, etc. This process, called digestion, allows your body to get the nutrients and energy it needs from the food you eat. This fact is also true for our spiritual digestive system. The digestive system consists of that parts of the body that work together to turn food and liquids into the building blocks and fuel that the body needs. This is also true for our spiritual digestive system. Our spiritual digestive system breaks down and absorbs good spiritual food (it separates the word of God from false and bad words that we hear from other people and evil spirits). The main purpose of the spiritual digestive system is to absorb the true and wonderful word of God so that we can grow spiritually.

The different kind of food that God uses as symbols in dreams and visions range from milk, bread, vegetables, fruit, cake, meat pies, hamburgers, take away food, finger food, restaurant food to fresh meat in a butchery. There is actually no limit to the different kinds of foods in dreams that symbolizes the word of God. See “Breast”

Everything we eat that is from God (word of God) no matter how we obtain it (Bible study, listening to preaching, reading, dreams, and visions, prophetic words, etc.), goes to our stomachs (our spirits – see the meaning of “Stomach”) where it is digested. Unfortunately, we also eat rubbish (lies, wrong beliefs, words of hatred, people treating us badly with negative words and slander, hate, contempt, etc.).

Spiritually bad food is symbolized by symbols like “poison” and substances that have no nutritional value.

Just as the natural processes of our digestive system break up the food and just as the nutrients are taken up in our bloodstream and transferred to all the cells in our bodies, so our spirits also absorb the “nutritious” word of God and also transfer the nutritious substances to our spiritual cells.

Our livers remove all kinds of impurities from our blood. This is also true for our spiritual livers. See the meaning of “Liver”. The bad food is removed and separated from the good food.

Just as with our natural bodies, after most of the nutrients are removed from the food mixture (word of God and lies of the enemy and other people, especially those words that cause emotional “garbage”) there is waste left over. This is stuff our spiritual bodies, as our natural bodies, cannot use. This stuff is bad for us and needs to be passed out of our bodies. As I said, in our spiritual “bodies”, this stuff is the lies, the slander, the insults, the emotional abuse, bitterness, hate, contempt, forgiveness, etc.

For this reason, when we dream we go to the toilet (I am not using the word “bathroom” for a reason) to get rid of the solid waste, it symbolizes what we are being delivered from (the sin, the lies, and the emotionally abusive words bitterness, hate, and contempt that we allowed in our bodies. Remember, we transgressed by “eating” this bad stuff. We allowed it into our bodies).

Obviously, these actions and these conditions in our bodies have consequences. We need to repent and to get rid of those things (bitterness, hate, and contempt, etc.) and it’s consequences. Especially those things that cause bitterness, unforgiveness, and other bad emotional issues that stand between us and a pure, balanced relationship with God and other people.

A toilet symbolizes the repentance and confession of a Christian to deal with inner emotional issues and sin in their lives (bitterness, hate, and contempt, etc.). Such a person is cleansing himself (his inner being) of bitterness and unforgiveness and other emotional issues through confession and repentance. This also speaks of the removal of spiritual blocks and garbage through repentance and confession. It is not the same as “bathing” which is actually the conversion of a non-believer. See “Bathing” and “Bathroom”

Some may ask, “How can we prevent ourselves from these consequences in the first place? I mean, preventing lies and false doctrines from taking hold of us is understandable. But what about abusive words and actions which cause bitterness and unforgiveness?”

Think of Stephen in the New Testament. He was mocked and cursed and stoned to death by people who hated him very much because of his Christian faith. Yet, at that moment, his words were, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do”. Stephen did not allow those words of hatred and those totally unfair actions to enter his spiritual body. He did not “eat” those words and did not allow it to become poison or a bad substance inside his body.

Food also symbolizes the spiritual teaching of the word of God. A teacher (five-fold ministry) often dreams about food and preparing food for people. They often dream that they are busy in a kitchen or a restaurant or a food-truck (itinerant ministry) preparing food.

Foot

Leviticus 8:24

And he brought Aaron’s sons, and Moses put of the blood upon the tip of their right ear, and upon the thumbs of their right hands, and upon the great toes of their right feet: and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar round about.

A foot in dreams and visions symbolizes a person or a congregation’s activities. It speaks of spiritual or evangelical outreaches and other activities of the church. Moving in certain directions plays a part. It can also speak of other (non-spiritual) activities in a person’s life or a group of people’s lives. There is a difference between the symbolic meanings of a hand and a foot in dreams and visions although it appears to be very similar. With “hand” the emphasis is on organizing and guiding whilst with “foot” the emphasis is on the stepping out and performing what was decided upon. See “Hand.” Toes are all about a person or people stepping out and doing things for the Lord. See “Toe”

Always remember to take the difference in meanings into consideration in terms of whether it is the left or right body part that you dreamed of. See “Directions and Locations (movement or location) in dreams and visions (Human body parts)”

Forehead

Ezekiel 3:9

As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.

Revelation 7:3

Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

A forehead in dreams and visions speaks of the ability of a person to take a firm stand against rebellious and manipulative people. A hard forehead speaks of a person who can take a stand for God or for what is right. In the book of Revelations, the saints received the mark of Christ on their foreheads because they endured the persecution and they did not renounce Christ.

See “Forehead (Soft)”

Foreigner

Hebrews 11:13

These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

John 10:5

And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

Psalm 119:19

I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.

In a positive sense, strangers in dreams and visions speak of a person who is involved with people who are against him because of his faith (see Hebrews 11:13 above). Such people know and act as if they are not really citizens of their native countries anymore but citizens of the kingdom of God. They are moving around in a strange and hostile world because they are ambassadors of God in a world that will never accept them.

In a negative sense, a stranger in dreams and visions can speak of a person who should not be believed or followed. It speaks of a person who should not be trusted.

Forest (Trees)

See “Trees (Forest)”

Fork

See “Garden (Fork)”

Fornication

Galatians 1:6

I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel.

1 Corinthians 6:9

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.

Galatians 4:9-10,21

9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?

10 Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.

21 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?

Fornication in dreams speaks of spiritual idolatry. It sounds serious but it actually speaks of people pursuing alternative ways of obtaining salvation (which is just as serious as it sounds). People like this are usually very legalistic and judgmental. They are actually rejecting Christ and embracing the old laws of Judaism.

It usually starts with small little things and gradually escalates; keeping the Sabbath, taking part in Jewish festivals, making use of prayer shawls, addressing God and Jesus as Jehovah or Yahweh or Yeshua, writing Gd without the “o” and of course the pursuit of all sorts of Hebrew “roots” as they call it. All these things and rituals are actually part of Judaism and it has nothing to do with Christianity. The end result of this serious error is devastating: Because these people have chosen the law they must follow the whole law and in the process, they are rejecting grace and faith and they are rejecting Christ. It is sad to say that many of them lose their salvation because of this. Repent and embrace true Christianity.

In a natural sense, fornication can be literal which speaks of a person being unfaithful to his or her spouse.

Foundation

Revelation 21:6

And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

Jeremiah 17:13

O Lord, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the Lord, the fountain of living waters.

Hebrews 6:1-2

1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

Fountain

Psalm 36:9

For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.

Jeremiah 2:13

For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.

Proverbs 13:14

The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.

Matthew 6:22-23

22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

A fountain speaks of spiritual blessings and/or financial blessings and provisions from God. These blessings and provisions are received without any effort and are therefore free. Just as a fountain breaks out from the ground providing water without any effort from people, so are spiritual and financial blessings and provision from God when it is symbolized in a dream or a vision by a fountain. A fountain (water) is the source of life and life’s provision.

In a spiritual sense, the eyes of man are like the eye of a fountain. Just as the water gushes out of the eye of a fountain, so the life in man can be seen through the eyes of man which reveals the light in him.

Fountain (Dried up)

A dried up fountain speaks of a financial or spiritual source that has dried up. No more income is to be or will be received from such a source.

Fox

Luke 13:32

And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox (Herod Antipas), Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.

Ezekiel 13:2-4

2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the Lord;

3 Thus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!

4 O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts.

Matthew 2:8

And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.

Foxes in dreams and visions speak of people who follow their own hearts and spirits by being very sly and cunning and evil and deceiving to achieve what they strive for. They like to hide their true motives from other people just like foxes hiding in their holes.

See “Animals” for a better understanding of this symbol.

Friend (Dead)

Dreaming of a friend dying it speaks of the end of the relationship between the relevant people. It speaks of an expired friendship. Other symbols in the dream, will reveal more information regarding the reason or the circumstances causing the end of the friendship. For instance, the friend dying because of a vehicle accident symbolizes the end of the friendship because of sudden disunity or conflict. You killing your friend by shooting him with a rifle or pistol speaks of the friendship coming to an end because of bitter words of criticism, etc. See “Vehicle (Accident)” and “Revolver”

Frog

Revelation 16:13

And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

Psalm 78:45

He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them.

Like snakes, frogs are also about deception. As you can see in Revelation 16:13 the frogs came out of the mouth of the false prophet which symbolizes false prophecies.

With snakes, it is all about lies and temptation. With frogs, it is all about false prophecies. The words are also lies but the people symbolized by frogs pretend that the words they utter actually come from God.

The Holy Spirit warns us against people with unclean spirits or false prophetical spirits by means of the symbol of frogs in dreams and visions. You might dream of a frog down at the bottom of a swimming pool in somewhat dirty slimy water.

As I said, false prophecies speak of people pretending that the words they speak come from God. They pretend that what they say or write are Biblical and true and from God. False dreams and visions dictionaries also fall under this category. The writers or creators of these dictionaries pretend that the meanings ascribed to the symbols in their dictionaries are true and legitimate. Remember, dreams and visions are from God, the symbols are from God, and the meanings are from God.

See “Animals” for a better understanding of this symbol.

See “Frog (Black)” and “Frog (Brown)” for a better understanding of this symbol.

Frog (Green)

A green frog symbolizes intellectual deceit. It is a false prophecy which originated in the mind of a particular person. It is, therefore, a prophecy which is the result of intellectual thinking and not from God. It is a person’s own imaginations and intellectual reasoning at work. With the other examples above (a brown frog and a black frog) the fleshly desire or the negative spirit of the particular person is the factor causing the false prophecy or the intellectual thoughts. With a green frog, the intellectual thoughts itself (reasoning) cause the false prophecies.

See “Animals” for a better understanding of this symbol.

Front yard

See “House”

Fruit (Different)

Philippians 1:11

Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

Ephesians 5:9

For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth.

Galatians 5:22-23

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Fruit in dreams and visions, symbolizes the spiritual fruit of the Spirit of God. In dreams and visions a person’s attitude and personality are symbolized by fruit. See the meanings of the different fruit in this dictionary like “Bananas” and “Pineapple” for a better understanding of this symbol.

Funeral

Colossians 2:10-14

10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.

Romans 6:2-6 (actually whole chapter)

2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:

6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

The moment a person dies it is finally over for such a person. He or she cannot intervene in earthly matters or influence anything or anybody on this earth anymore. However, it is not yet over for the family and friends of such a person. They still need to bury him or her. The moment they buried him then everything is settled. Even if people want to they cannot get involved in such a person in any way. The actual burial emphasizes the finality regarding all issues and outstanding matters between the person and those that stay behind.

The funeral of a person, therefore, symbolizes the settlement of any issues. Such issues usually mean a debt or an obligation. Just like Jesus Christ, with his funeral, paid for us with his blood, so we need to pay our debts. The debt can be financial, spiritual or natural matters or promises that have been resolved as symbolized by the funeral in the dream or vision. Other symbols in the dream and vision will reveal the specific details of the specific dream or vision.

Very important in this matter is that with this symbol the word “debt” is a keyword. We owe it to God, to other people and to financial institutions to pay our debts, whether it is a financial debt or a spiritual debt, or a promise. It does not matter what the debt is, we always have to pay all our debts.

In another sense, a funeral can also symbolize the water baptism of a person.

See “Coffin” and “Cemetery” and “Postmortem”

Furniture

Houses mostly symbolize people (See “Houses”). The house is the person and the rooms are the different aspects of his inner being (rooms of the heart, attitude, personality, condition of the soul). The back of the house symbolizes the past and the front of the house symbolizes the present or future. The backyard is his past life and the front yard the present or future life. The whole yard symbolizes a persons personal life situations (past, present, and future).

Furniture symbolizes all the equipment and tools that we need in our spiritual hearts to make things organized and easy or convenient for us in a spiritual sense. Furniture in dreams and visions speaks of spiritual aids. A closet or a drawer or a cupboard or a suitcase speaks of the condition our spiritual preparedness (clothes) are stored. If our clothes are new and beautiful and white or purple or blue (all positive colors) it speaks of us being prepared for life and for ministry in a good positive way. If the cupboards and drawers are new and beautiful and white and blue and gold it speaks of us protecting our clothes (preparedness for ministry) in a good responsible way. Dark, brown, broken, black, old, red, yellow, dirty furniture in a chaotic condition (house not clean and furniture not maintained and neat) speaks of our hearts (inner being – souls) being in a bad and unprotected spiritual condition (backsliding, no spiritual growth or development).
