What is the Biblical Meaning of Dirty Clothes In a Dream?

In Isaiah 64:6, the actions of the unrighteous and those with unclean hearts are “filthy rags” or dirty clothing. 

In Zechariah 3:3-5, an angel commanded Joshua to remove his filthy clothing that represented sin. According to Enduring Word, Satan must have been pointing to those [filthy clothes] and declaring forcefully that Joshua was unfit to stand before the Lord in this office. Fortunately, the Angel made him worthy by giving him clean clothing. This exchange of clothing is representative of Christ dying, so we can be stainless. Because of Christ we have access to purity and right standing with God. 

Lastly, the Angel gave him a message after his cleansing: “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘If you will walk in obedience to me and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you a place among these standing here.” Similarly, you receive such access to the throne of God when you choose to be purified by Jesus Christ.

  1. What about dreaming of praying and healing.
    and also dreaming of been with Jesus Christ, i started complainning all the problem i had since i was born but He (Jesus Christ) did not reply me but only smile.

      1. What about in the case of dreaming about a particular man, now there was a prophecy about me meeting a certain man and that man will be my husband. In less than a week, the man showed up and I started praying to know if he is the one God told me about through His prophet. And there was confirmations through my dream line and in vision, I am not a pastor but because of my closeness to God, I sometimes do see things beyond the physical. And I now went back to the prophet of God that gave me the prophecy and told him about this gentleman, he confirmed it again with me that he is the one. Fast ward, the man now showed up to my pastors, (let me say our pastor and his wife, because this was in the same church with me but he has left the church) our spiritual parents said no, we can’t get married, because they don’t see us as husband and wife. Trouble started, we have been in this for almost two years now, since last year February 1st this man showed up for me until now no way for us to get married. But other prophets and prophetess keep giving us confirmation. We once agreed and got separated but the man came back and said he had no peace no rest,they keep telling him to look for me that I am his wife. I have been praying, fasting, sowing seeds to put an end to this controversy but I see no way yet.
