ChatGPT, Dreams and the Bible

“Then Joseph (the Dreamer) said to Pharaoh, “The dreams of Pharaoh are one; God has shown Pharaoh what He is about to do:” - Genesis 41:25

I had a dream last week. It's typical for me to forget dreams shortly after waking up, but this one really captured my attention. I'm not sure why, but perhaps it's because it included things I have a lot of emotional attachment to.

“In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, while slumbering on their beds, then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction.” - Job 33:15-16

Anyway, I usually search online for the meaning of my dreams by looking up things I saw in my dreams and deciphering their symbolism in the unconscious. Then, I remembered that ChatGPT, an Artificial Intelligence language model, may have already been trained to interpret dreams with billions or maybe trillions of resources it has read. So, I decided to ask what my dream means, and it gave me pretty good answers that I had to put together and interpret myself. I also asked a few questions about what certain things I saw in the dream symbolize, and I am pretty happy with the results.

“Then, being divinely warned in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed for their own country another way.” - Matthew 2:12

What's also crazy is that today, I found myself in the same location as in my dream—a place I don't usually go. Fate had led me to a situation identical to that in the dream, though I didn't encounter the same person. I was too scared to look around, but someone who seemed similar to him stood in front of everyone, making it impossible for me not to notice.

I don't know. I've witnessed what I deem miracles in the past, much like what happened today. The most significant one, however, I screwed up after it was already too late. God knows I've suffered because of it for a few years now, and I'm still enduring the consequences. Despite that, I'm happy to have witnessed what I saw today. It made me feel like He's still there. I can't do much, though, but trust Him with this one, I have little control.
