Dream Interpretation Broken Bones

The General Meaning of Bones in Dreams

Using already fulfilled prophecies from the ancient history of Egypt and the Hebrews, we see that bones represent strength.

The God of Abraham cursed Egypt, saying:

"Son of man, I have broken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and, see, it shall not be bound up to be healed..." (Eze 30:21a, KJV)

Egypt, at the time of the curse, reigned as the most powerful nation in the Mediterranean region, and in all the earth. Egypt has never regained super power status. In fact, in Muslim and Middle Eastern culture, Egypt is consistently ranked last in the listing of greatest to least Muslim nations (every ME nationality I have met has shared their list; lists vary in the upper ranks. But, Egypt is always last.)

Here is another article on the general dream meaning of a broken bone.

Two Fulfilled Dreams with Broken Bones

A Broken Back

In the mid 90's, I had many dreams in which I fought an enemy I could not identify or understand. Eventually (after 5 years), I was able to defeat that enemy and reclaim my freedom. However, in one of the early dreams, in a conflict that manifested as a major battle, the final event was a one on one hand to hand combat with the "boss". He defeated me because I did not know how to use the three bullets I had for my gun. He broke my back.

Following that, I fell in love with, and quickly married, a woman. When I eventually learned the identity of the man in the dream, I realized it was my father-in-law. By that time I had also learned he was a practicing sorcerer and a 32nd degree Freemason of the Philadelphia Lodge.

Eventually, I escaped Roman Catholicism and learned how to believe in the Word of God. By calling on Jesus, I defeated that enemy, which was really a principality, not the father-in-law himself.

A Broken Arm Dream Fulfilled

I had three businesses in Philadelphia. Two of the businesses were formed via a three-person S Corporation. One of the partners led us to hire his father, and attorney, to do the corporate paperwork.

In a dream, I saw a man with gray hair and a cowboy hat put me in jail under false pretenses. I said something negative about someone. He said, "That person is me!" and slammed the barred door on my right forearm, which broke it.

Eventually, I met the lawyer. I went to tell him that his son had been embezzling money from the business. I asked him to speak with his son so accounts could be made right. I told him I did not want anything more than a righting of accounts, that the money taken should be debited from the son's personal investment into the business.

What happened instead was this: the man, who was then making plans to move to Montana, called a meeting of the corporate officers. He told us we needed to finalize the corporate documents and assign equal allotments of the stock. We signed a mass of papers. He was pushing the entire time, "Quickly, quickly, we don't have all day," he was saying.

An assistant collected the papers and left the room. Once he was gone and out of sight down the hall, the lawyer stood and told the room, "Those papers you just signed transferred ownership to my son. You own nothing." He looked at me and told me he was personal friends with the DA of Philadelphia, a regular golf buddy. He promised me that if I "so much as walked into one of those coffee shops", I would be railroaded into jail, no questions asked.

That is how the cowboy Sheriff broke my arm (and took away my power in the corporation, and in my personal finances- I was not compensated a single cent of the substantial back pay I was owed, and none of my own personal investment, about $10,000).

Dreams are interesting and they do having meaning. It's wonderful whenever a person is able to interpret a dream; for a dream is simply a warning from God as to what to do or not to do.

Great hub.

penlady,

Yes, this warning nature of dreams is described in Job 33:14-

"For God speaketh once, yea twice, [yet man] perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, That he may withdraw man [from his] purpose, and hide pride from man. He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword."

These are the words of Elihu, who was blessed by God with wisdom.

Dreams are not limited to this. We must also note that Joseph interpreted the cup bearers dream- good news, a return to favor. Joseph also interpreted the bread maker's dream- bad news, death.

Daniel interpreted Nebechudnezzar's dream: bad news followed by forgiveness and a return to power.

Joseph received a dream from God: his brothers would all bow to him. It looked good... and in the end, it was. However, the road to fulfillment was emotionally and physically difficult.
