World Dreams - Hebrews
The Hebrews were monotheistic, They believed God contact them by their dreams. The biblical figures were all visited in their dreams by God or prophets, who told them what to do. Hebrews also differentiated between good dreams from God and bad dreams from evil spirits. The power of the dream: If a person with alot of power like prophet, king, and other holistic people dreamt something, all the people would folow him: fights, conquering, killing, go out to wars and more.
This is how the hebrews knew that god contact them in their dreams:
Clear dream, almost real.
0rganized dream and not mess with alot of fool images.
They dreamt in the last time of the sleep - dreams that dont effected by life.
The hebrew believed in prophetic dreams - that tell them the future and how to solve problems in the future, most of the times the problem was war. Other dreams where a warning dreams - which tell the dreamer messages from god and most of the time warn him that he is going in the wrong way. The Hebrews, like many other ancient cultures, incubated dreams in order to receive divine revelation. For example, the Hebrew prophet Samuel, would lay down and sleep in the temple at Shiloh before the Ark and receive the word of the Lord. Most of the hebrews` dreams are listed in the "talmud". But you also can find lots of prophetic dreams in the Bible:
Jacob, a Hebrew patriarch, dreamt of a ladder "set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it." At the top of the latter stood God. God promised Jacob that the land of Israel would belong forever to the Jewish people.
