Hi there, I would like more clarity on this dream I had, hoping for some clue:
I was in what seemed to be our house with the family, out away camping chairs and packing and stacking boxes, as well sweeping I then noticed a branch of a tree that was wrapped around a part of the house, someone then gave me knife to cut off this branch, that was like a leach which I did. I then turned to my father in-law and he said to Jesus is not worthy to be called God, I then said to him he most definitely is.
He then said to me to go and read revelation 3, and then he lit up a cigar, as I was speaking to him our land lord approached us and said he is going to put up a security door in the passage between the bed rooms and the rest of the house.

Oops, pack away folding up camp chairs.

In what seemed to be your house with family I believe represents your church family. (Or body of Christ as a whole) It appears that you want to tidy up your spiritual walk and move on from just “camping” or possibly moving from church to church, or house to house. The tree branch that is more like a leach that needs to be severed (the knife indicates cutting away by the Word of God) could represent a person or particular group of people who influence the body of Christ in a negative way. This is also true of your Father in law, smoking a cigar. My experience with father in law in dreams is that of influence that is not of the Holy Spirit but more so the law or traditions of men. (Trying to please people more than Christ) The law competes with Jesus instead of embracing Him as Lord. So, the land Lord, I believe represents Jesus or someone He has in a position of true authority over you that wants to help you make a distinction between the two by putting up a door of security between the bedroom, inner chamber (your inner thoughts and what you really believe) and the rest of the house. Everything flows from our Spirit through the soul and then to the body in a natural sense. What I see about Rev 3 is that God will open doors that no man can shut and shut doors that no man can open for you. I know He promised that to me when I was making this type of transition from a legalistic institutionalization of church performance, to finding my place of security in Christ.

You have nailed it Fully Restored. You surely know how to apply symbols in dreams. You were spot on with the legalistic part of your interpretation. If I am not mistaken, I think Dino has experienced some issues with his real father-in-law as well in the past, about similar issues (previous dream interpretation), so, it appears that his father-in-law is a bit legalistic in real life as well.
You really did interpret this dream well. You did not miss important information so I am actually very impressed.

Amen! I agree with you David, she really did well!

It is funny that Revelations 3 is about 3 groups of Christians; the first group was reprimanded for bad works, the second group was commended for good works and the last group was reprimanded for being lukewarm. It is all about works. So the father-in-law was offended about this. He was disgusted about Jesus Christ taking people on about their works (See “Cigarette” – Cigar has the same meaning but it emphasizes that the person who is offended is rich and sophisticated (social position in the community a lot like a Pharisee).
So, in the dream this part emphasizes that legalistic people don’t like to be judged on their actions because they are self-righteous.

Wow! Sound interpretation. I didn’t have an idea about the dream except for the father in law part which I sensed could represent a version of a worldly father or leader twisting the word of God/ preventing the truth to suit their status.

Ok, here goes.
I believe the dream was a warning and a preparation of what was coming (The Divorce)
The lord was saying this season has is coming to an end get your self ready, the door coming up represents, it’s closing, the house is me and my family, the Lord saying my time is up, for what ever reason,,,HE KNOWS THE INTENT OF OUR HEARTS AND OF OTHERS, I think he knew my wife’s heart already therefore preparing me, My father in-law I believe is the Branch around the house, his counsil is towards marriage is off, and he is the the influence to our marriage, and my wife regards him as a very spiritual person, but only I could could see that he is exactly what revelation 3 says. Please I’m only just sharing not breaking him down. Any way a few weeks later after the dream my wife at the dinner table said she can’t live with me anymore I must move out, how that broke my heart after trying and still wanting to try and fix this marriage, I cannot. I miss me children terribly, and never ever wanted them to be without a father next to them.
But I think the lord has given hope, The knife that cut the Branch, I believe that the lord will intervene and cut that soul tie or what ever hold is on our marriage.
The dream has unfolded exactly as you guys have interpreted.
Please lord if you will and are willing to fix this this marriage then do so, if not I thank you for the grace to accept whatever the out come, let your will be done, I am simply your servant, your son.
In Jesus name Amen.

That Word, which is the knife, is quick and powerful and sharper than a two edged sword. He gives us the Authority to walk in the blessing and receive the Promises of God as yes and amen.
You can use the Word as your weapon. Meditating on the Truth that GREATER IS HE that is in you than anything attached to this world.
I see your heart. However, in this dream someone gave you that knife, which I believe represents the “equipping” you to stand for your marriage. We can’t change the mind of our spouses but the Word sure can. We can pray Ephesians Chapter 1, that the eyes of her understanding be enlightened and that she would know the true hope of her calling to the covenant that was made. Also the Father in law. That no weapon formed against you all shall prosper. As for the soul ties, you may want to check out Brother Martins book about the Truth on Spiritual Warfare. I know that I struggled with “fighting” against a lot of things, the I was deceived into thinking couldn’t be simply severed by the Word.
Jesus is enough. And He is far Greater than absolutely anything.
Grace and Peace be multiplied to your family.

You all did pretty well with this interpretation. Sound interpretation and very good comments and advice. We pray for you, Dino. May God’s will come into fulfillment regarding your marriage. Never give up and do not feel alone or abandoned. God is with you and He will never leave you or forsake you.

Thank you all, and Fully Restored I will check that book out

You are doing exactly the right thing. Nothing better than this to get you on the right track. Read through the meanings of the symbols in your dictionary as often as you can and read through the interpretations and messages in the Forum as often as you can, and very soon you will be interpreting dreams like a pro.
