    if you deleted this bc it might have seemed unimportant, notice that there are some old dream threads here on numbers that might be useful.

    Please don't feel like you can't ask. The Lord is omnipotent so He will use every symbol, direction, spelling ect to get across His message.

    The numbers in my dreams are always key and critical elements in the dream. :)

    It's funny that people banter over whether numbers are significant or not. God created our world in a way that brings numbers to mind. Plant leaves have consistent divisions, that allow us to identify and distinguish a toxic from a non-toxic plant.

    It is almost as though God was training us to learn numbers in a way He knew we could all understand... in preparation for greater understanding.

    I believe so too. God is a God of order and not chaos so not knowing exact amounts of x would create questions and confusion which is not of the Lord.

    Dreams with numbers always seem to be the ones telling me the something most critical. As I've said on here before... I usually find that taking the number to mean a page number in my Bible is what its referring to. If the number is greater than the number of pages in my Bible (all the pages), then I just run over until I get to the end. This is the simple way of figuring it out. Also I find that the first section of scripture I come to is what's being referred to in my dream. It can get far, far more complicated than this, but God will lead you where you need to go regardless.

    Just refer this to Bible study... and then let God lead you from there.

    Thank you for the posts. =) I felt stupid for taking off my original post but my question is that, I've been waking up @ 3:33, I never wake up that time and I want to know what does that mean? Some people say its evil (I hope not) but is it symbolic for something? I've been praying about something, and I wonder if it ties to anything.

    So you wake up at 3:30. You most likely have insomnia. Why focus on numbers when
    you can focus on the Father in Heaven. Why focus on 333 when the Father in Heaven
    has given you eternity. The dark side has us to believe that numbers mean something.
    When you are looking and trying to figure out numbers, you are not looking or seeking
    the Father in Heaven, very simple, numbers are a diversion.
    Look how crazy people get from 666.
    I must be special, God gives me numbers. except the lotto ones.
    So hide your clock. Most likely your clock is not in-tune with Universal Time Code via the atomic clock and is off. I hope you do not believe that God, The Father in Heaven
    with all Wisdom is going to send you 333. The Spirit brings comfort not numbers.
    Numbers is new age hocus pocus.
    So lets make things up as everyone else does.
    333. your half devil and half angel.
    333 means the 3 kings or wise men.
    333, means half bad.
    333 it's George Bush's fault.
    333 The mark of the Anti-Christ's midget brother.
    333 Jesus was 33 years old and was in the earth 3 days.
    etc
    etc
    etc.
    So if you are free by the Act of the Father in Heaven and His Son.
    You are free indeed, Free from numbers.

    I thought The Father in Heaven used the Word, His Son Jesus to get across
    His message. Now it is spelling, symbols, direction. Who knew.

    That's it. 333. Spelling, Symbols and Direction.

    Word Up.

    I do suffer from insomnia sometimes but I'm not taking the numbers serious, but I thought it was strange. I don't believe in new age theories and I didn't know about the universal clock. Thanks

    Like the info submitted by skywatcher - this holds true for me as well. Also, check out Psalms or Proverbs with the appropriate time as chapter/verse. There wasn't a Psalm, but I did find a Proverb. Test with the Spirit, He will lead you to the exact message He is communicating. And, yes, the time does have some meaning for you to seek out or you wouldn't remember it.Proverbs 3:33 (Contemporary English Version) He places a curse on the home of everyone who is evil, but he blesses the home of every good person.

    A lot of people wake up around three. There are many possible causes -- a train on schedule, traffic from shift workers, a change in the winds, birds waking up, bladder impatient, people in the house snoring, stage of sleep and brain activity, a need for prayer.

    I can feel when the sun rises, and I'm not sure if it's air pressure, gravitational pull, bird noises or what, but it's fairly consistent. Maybe there is also an unseen change at 3.
    (I woke up at 3 this morning and the clothes dryer was going...)

    I know some people who get up and pray at 3 every morning. They say their minds are clear enough to hear God and focus then.

    Hadasseh- I thought it was a bible verse but didn't think anything of it, but thank you for bringing up proverbs.

    Heron- Thanks for the suggestion of praying.

    Veronica =)

    Glad you came back to your deserted post, anyway. (-; Silly us, we will still drive a dead horse.

    The 3:00 waking... I have heard SO many people say that. About 1/3 of them have believed it was to pray.

    God uses everything in HIS creation to speak to us. His Word will confirm all messages and will never contradict. But His Word is not the only way we hear His Voice. Yes He absolutely uses symbols, including numbers.

    I was reading this Prophetic word this morning The ElijahList - Prophetic Words and Prophecies
    and came across this scripture
    Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.—Jeremiah 33:3
    I thought of you. ♥
