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


Ecclesiastes 12:11

The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd.

Isaiah 41:7

So the carpenter encouraged the goldsmith, and he that smootheth with the hammer him that smote the anvil, saying, It is ready for the sodering: and he fastened it with nails, that it should not be moved.

John 20:25

The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

Colossians 2:14

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.

Isaiah 22:20-23

20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah:

21 And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah.

22 And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.

23 And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father’s house.

In dreams and visions, a nail symbolizes a word of wisdom firmly fixed into the minds of people. It speaks of decisions and conditions and situations in peoples lives which are firmly established and fixed because of the wisdom and counsel and will of God. Nothing can change it and nothing can move it. It speaks of people knowing that his word and his will is firmly established and that it cannot fail.


Revelation 3:17-18

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

2 Chronicles 28:19

For the LORD brought Judah low because of Ahaz king of Israel; for he made Judah naked, and transgressed sore against the LORD.

Prophets and the Biblical Language of Symbols

Job 22:6

For thou hast taken a pledge from thy brother for nought, and stripped the naked of their clothing.

In a spiritual sense, nakedness in dreams and visions speaks of a person not being adequately prepared for ministry. If you dream that you stand in front of people without being adequately dressed it means that you did not adequately prepare for your sermon or for the meeting. If you struggle to hide your nakedness it means that you have been exposed not to be adequately prepared for whatever you had to or needed to do. Nakedness is a symbol for being stripped, undone and exposed.

I personally had a dream once of me in my bedroom standing in the middle of the room, being dressed and ready to go out somewhere important. The next moment some invisible force attacked me and attempted to remove my trousers by pulling it down. It was a vicious attack and in the dream, I just grabbed my pants with both hands and I firmly held onto it. We were wrestling on the floor (me holding on and this invisible force trying to take off my trousers). In the dream, this invisible person gave up and left me. I knew that somebody wanted to hurt me (expose me) and I suspected a certain person.

Sure enough, that Sunday in church this person suddenly addressed the congregation and openly rebelled against me. He attempted to motivate the congregation to expel me because he felt that I was not adequately prepared to lead the congregation. When he concluded I addressed the congregation and I explained what happened and I briefly defended myself. Needless to say, his attempt did not succeed. He attempted to forcefully “remove” my strength or power and my spiritual condition or status of preparedness to minister or to be a minister in the body of Christ, by force but he failed.

See “Clothing” and “Trousers” and “Legs” and “Girdle” and “Hips” for a better understanding of this symbol.

In another sense, nakedness symbolizes the state of mankind in the eyes of God when it comes to salvation. Like Adam and Eve, who were found naked after they sinned, so it is with every human being before they accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.

A friend of mine once had a dream of him being naked. In the dream, he had to go write an examination. He attempted to cover himself with a piece of paper to do that. To him, it seemed that the paper was able to cover his nakedness. The reality is that we cannot cover our sins with mere theoretical Bible knowledge as symbolized by the piece of paper.

Audio and Written Versions: Dreams Interpretation Session 4

It is actually what Adam and Eve attempted to do with the fig leaves. This person thought that theoretical (head salvation) was enough. On the contrary, we need true Biblical salvation (heart salvation) which can only be achieved when we truly accept Jesus Christ as our Savior by truly repenting and truly making an about turn in our lives. That is when God clothes us with the white garment of salvation.

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


Matthew 1:21

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Mark 14:61

But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?

Revelation 2:17

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

Revelation 3:12

Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

A name in dreams and visions symbolizes character, distinction, position, and title. In many cases, the Bible clearly shows the meanings of names by the events around a certain name (person). In this sense, historical incidents and events in the Bible determine the meanings of the names of people who were involved in those events. We have noticed how the ministry or purpose for an old Testament Bible figure pointed to Jesus Christ. In such a sense, those people or those names symbolizes Jesus Christ and the work that He was going to do years later. We think of Moses, Joseph, Aaron, Isaac, Samson, Gideon, Joshua and so on.

Names are not just meanings, it also gives ability. When a spiritual title is given it gives real ability and authority and power in terms of what is symbolized by that name.

In another sense, the natural meanings of names symbolize those meanings. This is true for names in the Bible and names not in the Bible.

Judges 16:5-7

5 And the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and said unto her, Entice him, and see wherein his great strength lieth, and by what means we may prevail against him, that we may bind him to afflict him: and we will give thee every one of us eleven hundred pieces of silver.

6 And Delilah said to Samson, Tell me, I pray thee, wherein thy great strength lieth, and wherewith thou mightest be bound to afflict thee.

7 And Samson said unto her, If they bind me with seven green withs that were never dried, then shall I be weak, and be as another man.

Amos 2:11-12

11 And I raised up of your sons for prophets, and of your young men for Nazarites. Is it not even thus, O ye children of Israel? saith the LORD.

12 But ye gave the Nazarites wine to drink; and commanded the prophets, saying, Prophesy not.

Numbers 6:2-21

2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the LORD:

3 He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried.

4 All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the husk.

5 All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separateth himself unto the LORD, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.

6 All the days that he separateth himself unto the LORD he shall come at no dead body.

7 He shall not make himself unclean for his father, or for his mother, for his brother, or for his sister, when they die: because the consecration of his God is upon his head.

8 All the days of his separation he is holy unto the LORD.

9 And if any man die very suddenly by him, and he hath defiled the head of his consecration; then he shall shave his head in the day of his cleansing, on the seventh day shall he shave it.

10 And on the eighth day he shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons, to the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation:

11 And the priest shall offer the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering, and make an atonement for him, for that he sinned by the dead, and shall hallow his head that same day.

12 And he shall consecrate unto the LORD the days of his separation, and shall bring a lamb of the first year for a trespass offering: but the days that were before shall be lost, because his separation was defiled.

13 And this is the law of the Nazarite, when the days of his separation are fulfilled: he shall be brought unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation:

14 And he shall offer his offering unto the LORD, one he lamb of the first year without blemish for a burnt offering, and one ewe lamb of the first year without blemish for a sin offering, and one ram without blemish for peace offerings,

15 And a basket of unleavened bread, cakes of fine flour mingled with oil, and wafers of unleavened bread anointed with oil, and their meat offering, and their drink offerings.

16 And the priest shall bring them before the LORD, and shall offer his sin offering, and his burnt offering:

17 And he shall offer the ram for a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD, with the basket of unleavened bread: the priest shall offer also his meat offering, and his drink offering.

18 And the Nazarite shall shave the head of his separation at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall take the hair of the head of his separation, and put it in the fire which is under the sacrifice of the peace offerings.

19 And the priest shall take the sodden shoulder of the ram, and one unleavened cake out of the basket, and one unleavened wafer, and shall put them upon the hands of the Nazarite, after the hair of his separation is shaven:

20 And the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before the LORD: this is holy for the priest, with the wave breast and heave shoulder: and after that the Nazarite may drink wine.

21 This is the law of the Nazarite who hath vowed, and of his offering unto the LORD for his separation, beside that that his hand shall get: according to the vow which he vowed, so he must do after the law of his separation.

A Nazarite in dreams and visions symbolizes separation and consecration. It speaks of people sacrificing their time and their own desires to please God. It speaks of people prioritizing their lives so that God can prepare them for ministry. It speaks of people seeking God’s face to find his will and his desires for their lives.

Genesis 49:8

Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.

2 Kings 17:14

Notwithstanding they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the neck of their fathers, that did not believe in the Lord their God.

Proverbs 29:1

He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

Genesis 27:40

And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.

Deuteronomy 28:48

Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.

The neck of a person speaks of the responsibility or the yoke that’s been put on a person. A person who willingly accepts responsibility or a burden speaks of submission and cooperation. It symbolizes humility. In this sense, a neck in dreams and visions speaks of the willingness or the unwillingness of a person or a group of people to cooperate in a certain situation.

To be on the neck of another person speaks of having authority over the specific person. It speaks of pressure and dominance and power.

Neck (Stiff-necked person)

Deuteronomy 31:27

For I know thy rebellion, and thy stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious against the Lord; and how much more after my death?

Isaiah 48:4

Because I knew that thou art obstinate, and thy neck is an iron sinew, and thy brow brass.

A stiff-necked person is a person who is unyielding and not willing to co-operate or to bow or submit in a specific situation. It speaks of the hardness of the specific person’s spirit. It speaks of an uncooperative attitude or an unwillingness to submit to authority in a specific situation or in general.


Proverbs 27:8

As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that wandereth from his place.

Jeremiah 49:16

Thy terribleness hath deceived thee, and the pride of thine heart, O thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, that holdest the height of the hill: though thou shouldest make thy nest as high as the eagle, I will bring thee down from thence, saith the LORD.

Habakkuk 2:9

Woe to him that coveteth an evil covetousness to his house, that he may set his nest on high, that he may be delivered from the power of evil!

A nest in dreams and visions symbolizes a safe dwelling place or a safe home that is protected and spiritually on solid foundations. It speaks of spiritual security and comfort.


Psalm 10:9

He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net.

Job 18:8

For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walketh upon a snare.

Ezekiel 12:13

My net also will I spread upon him, and he shall be taken in my snare: and I will bring him to Babylon to the land of the Chaldeans; yet shall he not see it, though he shall die there.

A net in dreams and visions symbolizes a catcher or a snare. It speaks of somebody being deprived of his spiritual freedom because of the sly and evil plot of evil spirits or an evil person or people. The purpose of such people is to cause a person to lose his spiritual freedom or liberty in Christ.

Revelation 22:5

And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

I Thessalonians 5:2-8

2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

Night in dreams and visions symbolizes evil influences or evil activities in the lives of people. It speaks of evil or demonic activities in a person’s life to cause unbelief and sin and fear in the lives of people. Whenever the events in our dreams take place during the night, in dark places and dusky areas, it speaks of unbelief, evil and demonic activities.

It speaks of evil spirits or evil people busy with evil maneuvers in the lives of people. More symbols in the specific dream or vision will reveal more information about the relevant evil activities. Please take note that demons and evil spirits have only two strategies that they constantly utilize to attack people and to bring people in bondage. These strategies are lies and deceit to get people to doubt in God and his word and to get people involved in sin. That’s it. They have no other strategies. It appears that evil spirits have a lot of strategies and a lot of ways to attack people but it really is not the case. They utilize different things and different people and different situations to deceit people but at the end of the day, they just do the two things (lies and temptations to cause people to doubt and to sin).

In some cases, the night can symbolize a time of tribulation. It speaks of persecution and trials and hardships.

Job 37:9

Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.

Job 26:7

He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

Psalm 48:2

Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.

North in dreams and visions symbolizes the place of God’s throne. It speaks of power, majesty and in some cases God’s judgment (coming from the throne).

When you dream of a call to move north it means God is calling you to visit him in his throne room. It is a call for intimacy. God wants to meet with you.

It also speaks of God’s power, his majesty and the taking up of your inheritance in Christ. It speaks of us being seated at the right-hand side of God in Christ Jesus from where we reign with and in Christ on the throne of Christ.


Psalm 115:6

They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not.

In dreams and visions, a nose speaks of the spiritual ability of a person to discern hidden things and hidden attitudes. A big nose speaks of a strong ability to discern spiritual attitudes and the nature of spirits (human spirits or demonic spirits). The emphasis is the discernment of spirits. It is all about the hidden attitudes of spirits (of people and of the presence and strategies of demons).

In a negative sense, a nose can symbolize a person who has been led by his nose or by his own desires. This has nothing to do with the discernment of spirits but everything to do with a person who is led by his own desires and suspicions.
