The Biblical Meaning of Snow in Dreams

The biblical meaning of snow in dreams is purity, cleansing, spiritual change, the finished work of Jesus, refreshment, and God’s power. In contrast, your dream may be literal and the winter climate is an indication of a practical or prophetic message from God.

However, most dreams convey a symbolic message. God often speaks in parables and riddles to encourage believers to seek him. Fortunately, God has given you “the secrets of the kingdom of heaven” to help you understand his messages. (Matthew 13:11) Additionally, symbolic dreams can be more relatable to your everyday life.

What is the biblical meaning of snow in dreams?

1. Cleansing

The Bible highlights that God removes all that doesn’t belong to cleanse a person, situation, or region. Then, we can become pure. Therefore, dreaming of snow may indicate that there is a cleansing and transformation happening in your life or someone around you.


  • Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.” (Psalm 51:7)
  • When the Almighty scatters kings there, let snow fall on Zalmon.” (Psalm 68:14)
  • If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)

2. Purity

Snow is used to describe purity in the Bible. As Christians, we are promised an internal cleansing that will leave us completely clean from our former sins. Therefore, dreaming of snow can indicate that God is removing all the residue of sin that has caused you pain or shame.


  • Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.” (Isaiah 1:18)
  • Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.” (Psalm 51:7)
  • His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow.” (Matthew 28:3)

3. The Finished Work of Jesus

Jesus’ blood sacrifice is what makes Christians pure and white as snow. Therefore, dreaming of snow may indicate you are accepting what Jesus did on the cross for your past sins. Essentially, this is good news because accepting powerful truths will cause you to walk with confidence, boldness, and faith.

Also, it will help you to understand that God has given you EVERYTHING necessary to escape sin and temptation. This truth will empower you to live a righteous life that is free from the shame of your past.


  • As I looked, thrones were placed, and the Ancient of Days took his seat; his clothing was white as snow, and the hair of his head like pure wool; his throne was fiery flames; its wheels were burning fire. ” (Daniel 7:9)
  • And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became radiant, intensely white, as no one on earth could bleach them.” (Mark 9:2-4)
  • The hairs of his head were white, like white wool, like snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire,” (Revelation 1:14)

4. Refreshment

In a period of your life where things are hard, dreaming about snow may symbolize refreshment, restoration, and strengthening. Also, dreaming of eating or dinking snow has a positive meaning if you had a good experience in your dream.

In Proverbs 25:13, it refers to snow as a cool drink which is refreshing: “Like the cold of snow in the time of harvest is a faithful messenger to those who send him; he refreshes the soul of his masters.”

5. God Can Change Your Season

God is growing you into a powerful man or woman of God. Ultimately, you can trust him in the harsh winter seasons when everything is symbolically dying or going wrong. And you can trust God in the spring seasons to return everything you lost and bring positive changes into your life.

Essentially, if you dream of snow consider the following questions: Were you happy or sad in the dream? Did you enjoy or hate the snow? Do you like winter? Why? Or, why don’t you like winter? Do you think this dream represented some type of pain related to winter? Is your life very hard right now? Do you think your dream is a reflection of the winter in your dream?

Dreaming of a winter season in your life may indicate that something harsh is happening in your life. Or, dreaming about a winter season may indicate the coming of a happy season such as Christmas. Either way, God has the power to transition you into a better season immediately if you trust him.

My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me. See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.” (Song of Songs 2)


  • For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater.” (Isaiah 55:10)
  • “Have you entered the storehouses of the snow, or have you seen the storehouses of the hail” (Job 38:22)
  • “You have fixed all the boundaries of the earth; you have made summer and winter.” (Psalm 74:17)
