“And afterward I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions,” Joel 2:28 emphasis added.
One meaning for the first word for dreams here is in the Strong’s concordance is; to recover.
Dreams: Strong’s H2492: חָלַם, châlam, khaw-lam’. A primitive root; properly to bind firmly, that is, (by implication) to be (causatively to make) plump; also (through the figurative sense of dumbness) to dream: – (cause to) dream (-er), be in good liking, recover.
I believe that God reminded me of this this evening, to say to many of you that,
“Now is the time for your old men to recover the dreams that they had many years ago that have not yet come to pass!”
Begin to pray into them again.
He has let you out of some things that you built and that you created and these things ran away with you, but not by His Hand.
But now it is time to recover the original dream and take hold of the horns of the altar and birth them into the earth and do it His Way!
Then you will cease from striving and the precious harvest and fruit of the earth will be plentiful to you!!
