Buildings, Houses & Settings

Houses in dreams as well as buildings or settings generally have to do with a life situation. Scriptures says that a house divided cannot stand; a metaphor for a situation. Jesus spoke of building a house on a rock rather than on sand; saying that any and every situation should be built on solid ground. When a focus of a dream is a house, think of it like a parable. The message is, “there’s a situation in your life that looks like”…

The situation can be your health, a ministry, a career or job, a relationship, a church situation, a financial situation, a family, a person, or perhaps the body of a person.
