Receiving a coat in a dream can be a good thing. Besides who doesn't like to receive? I do. I do.
Check out my friend's dream:
I had a dream last night about receiving a new overcoat. There was a large group of people that I knew in the early 80s at LDM (Last Days Ministries) and we where all receiving new overcoats. There where tailors there and they where measuring us and fitting us with our new coats. I had an old overcoat on, but I was also going to receive a new coat. The over coats where beige, full length all the way to the floor and had a strange narrow waste.
Upon reading this dream I am immediately reminded of Joseph and the colored coat his father gave him. (Gen 37:3) Just like Joseph, I feel like my friend is favored, and a favorite.
A coat can signify several things: covering, annointing, authority, protection. (2 Kings 2:14,15 When Elisha received the mantle of Elijah)
Now as far as the other people, I didn't feel that they had anything to do with the dream. So I told my friend this in an email, he disagreed.
That is totally O.K. with me. God is talking to the person receiving the dream not me. If it resignates in my friend's spirit, that is what matters. I realize that I'm not always the interpreter, but sometimes I'm the person who asks questions and guides the dreamer on how to understand or receive revelation given by God through a dream.
Ok back to the rest of the interpretation.
I also felt God was saying something through the name of the ministry - Last Days Ministries.
I feel like my friend is probably one of the chosen people that God is rising up in the last days to walk in authority and power.
I say to my friend - "Get excited! Looks like you're getting a promotion or perhaps a mantle! And so are all your friends in the dream. No worries you'll all be fully protected (floor-length coat), but it will probably be a narrow path (narrow waste).
As far as the color, colors are symbolic too. Brown usually represents death or born again. Maybe a group of people rising up that will be dead to self? I've also seen this color represented as a season of change.
Anybody else have a different revelation on this dream for my friend? Or would you like to share a dream where a coat was significant to you?
