Adding It Up – What Do Numbers Mean in Dreams?


I’ve done thorough studies of dreams, visions and the symbolism found in the Bible.  Once we understand God’s hidden symbolic language, an entirely new world opens up for us.

We will not only see messages in the dreams that we have at night; we will also be able to hear God speaking to us in unlimited ways: on television, in the movies, street signs, names and even numbers.

The key to understanding dreams is using a combination of symbolic understanding and the ability to hear God’s voice.


When interpreting dreams, I put less emphasis on the meaning of numbers than I used to when I first started out.

One of the reasons is because there are so many conflicting dream symbol meanings for numbers.

I believe that God gives us revelation into the meaning of symbols, but we have to be careful that we are not applying them globally to every single dream we have.

Repeating Numbers

My wife and I pay attention to repeating numbers all the time.  Eleven can represent transition and when we see it, we know that we’re about to transition into an entirely new season of our lives.

Maybe you see numbers line up on the clock like 2:22, 3:33, etc.  It could be the meaning of the actual number or symbolic that things are about to line up for you.  The only way to know for sure is to record it, watch for it and ask God for confirmation.

Although numbers in dreams are important, they are more useful in the application than the interpretation.  If you can take out any symbol of the dream and the dream does not change, then it’s best not to focus on it.

I have listed some very basic meanings of colors and numbers just as a starting point.


1    single
2    double
3    trinity, God
4    creativity, worldwide impact
5    grace
6    man’s efforts
7    completion, perfection
8    new beginnings
9    fruit of the spirit and gifts, judgment
10  rules, law
11  transition
12  leadership, government
13  rebellion
14  establishment
16  high level of grace
18  provision, judgment
21  jackpot
24  leadership, government
50  jubilee, reconciliation, freedom

Take a look at any corresponding Bible verses for numbers you have in your dreams.  For example, if you see the number 24 you might want to take a look at several chapter 24′s in the Bible.
