General Meaning: Babies have a twofold meaning. They represent being given a new responsibility. Secondly they speak of having trust, vulnerability and innocence. • In a negative light, they speak of immaturity. • Dreams • Positive: A baby speaks of a new life and a new aspect in your life and ministry. A baby boy often speaks of a teaching and leadership type of ministry, whereas a baby girl speaks of a more prophetic or creative emphasis in your ministry. • If you dream of a baby that suddenly matures beyond its age (for example it is a newborn that can walk already) this indicates that the new thing that has taken place in your life is going to mature fast. • If you dream of having twins, this speaks of having either a ministry or gaining a responsibility that is twofold or that has two different aspects to it. • The dream is indicating that you should nurture both aspects and not take one or the other. • If you dream that someone else you know hands you their baby, this could speak of that person giving you either their responsibility or ministry mandate. • This depends of course on what this person would represent in your dream. If they are an image to you of a ministry type, then it would speak of the Lord giving you this kind of ministry also. • If the person giving you the baby is a spiritual parent, then this would speak of them handing their mandate over to you. • If the person handing you the baby is someone that has a negative connotation in your life, then this would be negative and speak of you being put under pressure to take something you do not want or something that is not of the Lord. • Negative: If you dream that you lose your child or baby, it means that you have neglected and lost the promotion in the spiritual realm that God was giving you. • If you have been trusting God for something specific and dream that you lose a baby, it could mean that you have lost your faith or that a curse is causing that blessing to be lost. • If you dream of neglecting your baby, it means you have not been using your spiritual gifts. • If you dream that you are taking another person’s baby, it means that you have taken on responsibilities that are not your own. • A baby and child also indicate that this spiritual gift is yet young in you. It means that you are yet immature in that calling. • Visions Positive: Babies speak of a new life and also of trust. They speak of innocence and purity. They are not yet corrupted and have strong faith. This is why Jesus told us to be like little children. Children also speak of the blessing of the Lord. • If you see someone in the spirit with many children around them, it could be that the Lord is calling them to become spiritual parents. It can also indicate that the Lord has many blessings in store for them. • 1 Peter 2:2 As newborn babies, desire the sincere milk of the word, that you may grow by it • Babies receive with innocence what they are fed and hunger for it. To see someone as a baby would indicate that the Lord wants them to receive without asking questions. To trust the Lord completely as Jesus explains in this passage: • Matthew 11:25 At that [kairos] time Jesus answered and said, I thank you, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden • these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them to babies. • If you see someone you are ministering to as a baby in the arms of the Lord, the message is that the Lord wants them to rest in Him. To be a baby and to trust that He will care for them. • Negative: If you see a baby in the spirit, it could mean that the person you are ministering to is still a baby in their spiritual walk. If I am counseling a person and see them as a baby, this could also indicate hurts from the past that started at that age that need inner healing. • If you have a vision that is negative then it could also speak of birthing things that were not conceived by the Lord, but rather by the flesh or from the enemy. • See also: Birth, Child, Pregnant.
