Dreams Part 1
Dreams reveal knowledge that is hidden from us
Genesis 20:3 illustrates the hidden knowledge which can be revealed through dreams. Abimelech had no idea that Sarah was Abraham's wife. There was no natural indication of such a relationship. He assumed that Sarah was Abraham's sister because that is what he told him. However, God revealed to Abimelech that Sarah was married to Abraham.
Dreams warn us
God also warns Abimelech against marrying Sarah. He states that he will be punished, rather severely, if he lays with her. Since God knows that Abimelech took Sarah under false pretense, He gives him a fair warning before executing judgment. However, God lets Abimelech know that if he goes any further and marries Sarah he will die.
Dreams reveal God's Mercy and Intervention
We see the mercy of God revealed through the warning God gives to Abimelech. God is a God of compassion and He does not strike people down at random. He gives us the benefit of the doubt and take drastic steps to intervene. Dreams are God's way of displaying His mercy and intervening in our lives.
