Dreams About Silver and Gold
Shortly after my wife and I were married, we asked God for wisdom on how to save money for our retirement. A couple of years later, we started having dreams that seemed to give us clues on how to plan for the future. I wanted to share a few of those dreams, where the main subjects were gold and silver. While I realize that many dreams are symbolic, I believe these dreams speak of literal silver and gold and their potential as investments for the future.
Based on the prophetic revelation we’ve seen over the last few years, it seems as though there may be a collapse coming in the global financial markets. If you’re wondering why God would allow such a thing to happen, please go to this message. It will provide some context for the discussion. If indeed, the financial markets are approaching a state of collapse, the next question we might ask is, “What should I do with the money I have invested in the markets now?”
At this point, I’d like to issue a serious disclaimer:
- I am not a qualified financial adviser.
- I have no expertise or qualifications to advise you on how to invest your money.
- The views expressed here are not to be taken as professional advice on investing.
- I cannot be held responsible for the consequences of any investments you make based on my views shared in this message or any other information published here.
I have no desire to control a decision as big as where you invest your money for retirement. I implore you to ask God for wisdom on this important issue. That’s what I did and that’s how I received these dreams. I do, however, feel a need to share what revelation He gave me in the hope that it may confirm for some of you what He’s already told you.
On September 9, 2009 (9/9/09) I had the first dream that discussed investing. Let me share what transpired before the dream. (This is one of the advantages of keeping a spiritual journal – not only did I record the dream I had that night, but the conversation I had with a friend on the same day – which is relevant background information for the dream)
The morning of the September 9th, a friend who manages the blog Northwest Prophetic sent me an inquiry about Larry Randolph’s prophetic word on the “Eye of the Storm“. He asked for my discernment on it. I replied by e-mail with several reasons why I thought it was a good word. That night, I had the following dream:
In the dream I was at my parent’s house, having a phone conversation with my older brother Pat. (Pat died of cancer the previous year). He was giving me investment advice over the phone. He told me about the investment advice he gave to my parents and how they made a lot of money because they followed his advice. In the dream, I was aware they had made a lot of money by investing wisely using his advice. (In the natural – they did not) I don’t recall Pat actually telling me during our phone conversation what specific things I was supposed to invest my money in. He never gave me the details.
The only other subject of the dream was a pair of silver Persian cats that my parents had in their house. In the beginning of the dream, the fur of the two cats was matted and messy. As the dream progressed, someone was brushing out the matted fur and cleaning them up. At the end of the dream they were sitting on the couch, beautifully brushed, looking like they were ready to go to a show.
As I began to interpret the dream, I was certain it was the answer to some questions my wife and I had about investing. But I wasn’t certain what to do yet. I asked God if the dream contained the answers we were seeking. I heard Him say, ‘yes.’ I asked where the answer was, He said, ‘Look at the cats.’ He asked me what color my parent’s cat was in real life. My dad was given a black and white Persian cat by his sister many years ago. His sister was a breeder, and this cat had been in a few shows and won a ribbon or two. When my parents began driving for Fed-Ex, and could no longer take care of him, they asked me to adopt him. He was my dad’s pride and joy. I’ve always thought of this cat as the only inheritance my father left me. God then asked me, “What color were the cats in the dream?” I said, “Silver”. He said, “Any more questions?”
I believe the interpretation of the dream is this; there were two silver cats. Two is the number of covenant. Metals have prophetic symbolism – Gold represents Deity, Bronze – judgment. Silver symbolizes redemption. I believe God is speaking about His redemptive plan in this season of uncertainty. He doesn’t just redeem our souls, but our entire life – including our finances. Silver is the literal metal he wants to use to redeem my financial future. Persians are perhaps the most desired breed of show cat. They are very valuable. I believe my dad’s cat symbolizes my inheritance from God.
The date of the dream may also be significant: 9/9/09
The Prophet’s Dictionary indicates that the number nine signifies gestation, reproduction and matured development, as a baby is in its mother’s womb for nine months before birth.
I almost never have recurring dreams, but 4 nights later (on 9/13/09) I had this exact same dream again.
As an investment vehicle, silver may not seem very attractive right now. But in light of the dream, and in light of the other revelation we’ve received, I believe that will change. Like the cats in the dream, I believe silver is in the process of being ‘groomed’. In the future, it will be much more attractive and valuable.
The Silver and Gold Show
I often have important dreams on July 3rd and 4th. These two days are special to me in a way that only God understands.
On July 4, 2011, I had the following dream:
In the dream, I attended a gold show, which was like a conference where people went to learn about gold. There were many booths with vendors who talked about different aspects of gold. Several booths had miniature fountains that emitted small streams of gold dust that seemed to be powered by a current of air that dispersed a small amount of fine gold dust. If you placed your hand underneath one, eventually some gold dust would accumulate on your hand. I walked around and visited all the vendors.
One man was off in a corner, secretly showing people how they could place a 3×5 card under a fountain and collect gold dust to put in a small container that they could keep.
David Morgan of the Silver Investor (a silver investment periodical) was at the show. He was there to give a talk on where silver prices were headed in the future. He seemed happy and excited to share his news. (Morgan has for years advocated the position that silver is one of the best – if not the best long-term investment vehicle available to investors.
In the final scene of the dream, I was in a jail listening to a jailer describe what happened to people who were caught stealing gold; they would be put in prison for 1 minute, then released by the people who owned the gold. There was some sort of automatic pardon in place that applied to anyone who was caught stealing gold.
The date of this dream was July 4th, 2011 (Independence Day in the US).
I believe there is prophetic significance to this date. It symbolizes Liberty. I think that God desires for us all to live free of tyranny. And financial tyranny has enslaved the world for over a century. I believe He has a plan to end the tyranny and set the financial captives free.
On April 7th, 2011 I had the following dream:
A woman I didn’t know had come into a large amount of money. She went through town asking people what to do with it. I told her to take it all and buy silver. One of the men who gave her advice had a TV news show in which he gave investing advice. At the end of the dream, the woman left our small town for the big city. The TV news investor man came looking for me to get advice on what to do with his money.
On October 10, 2012, I had a dream about buying silver. In the dream, my friend the Graceful Banker and I were talking about buying silver. He did some calculations and he investigated different sellers to get us the best price. I had withdrawn my money and was ready to make a purchase of silver.
On September 28th, 2009 I had the following dream:
My wife and I were ministering with a friend named Gwendolyn. We were prophesying to people and praying for their healing. I had a bucket of silver coins that I was giving to people in need. I gave some coins to Gwendolyn. At the end of the dream, I saw a large copper penny – it was like a single vision that was separate from the dream. The words “In God We Trust” were emphasized.
In closing, I’d like to offer a few words of advice. I’ve come to the realization that it is greed, worry and fear that drive many of us to make decisions about saving and investing. If you’re in such a place, do not make any decisions about your finances at this time. These emotions are the very things that have built the financial system that is crumbling. God has given us a kingdom that cannot be shaken. If He has given you anything to save or invest for the future, decide in your heart that it will be used to bless others then invest it in whatever way He directs you. That doesn’t necessarily mean tithing to a church, although it may include that. Ask God for wisdom. Be grateful for what He gives you. Give liberally to those who ask.
