My Foot Washing Dream and False Prophets


I am sharing this dream in hope that someone has an interpretation. 25 years ago I was very involved with, King Jesus, a charismatic church. I attended two or three times a week. The church was filled with love, joy, singing and praise. One Sunday, we had a guest speaker. He was a prophet and invited us to hear him speak midweek at another church.

I went and had the opportunity to ask him to pray for me. He laid hands on me and prayed. He said that the Lord was going to send me out to reap the harvest of souls. That night I dreamed a very vivid richly colored dream. I was seated on a beautiful marble porch. A man that resembled my image of Jesus took a bowl of water and came to me. He got down on his knees and washed my feet. I spoke to him in telepathy saying that it was I whom should wash his feet. He smiled and continued to wash.

The next day I was so excited that I rushed to tell my pastor. He said the dream was common and people often had it after dealing with a false prophet. He renounced the prophet and said it was a mistake to allow the prophet to speak at our church. I was shattered but went along with him.

To this day I have my doubts. My question is, "Has anyone else ever heard of or had this dream?"

I had a dream that I was on my knees in a white robe washing the feet of Jesus I never saw his face and never tried to even look up at him in my mind and in my dream my goal was simply to cleanse his feet and the odd thing about it was I leaned over his feet and tears poured from my eyes and that's what I washed his feet with I knew it was Jesus because of the scarring on his feet from being crucified he also had on white that stopped just above his ankles we never spoke a word and I never looked up it was like I was determined to make sure I cleanse those feet jesus's feet to perfection and then I felt a hand lay on top of my head and just hold it and then I woke up. I just can't get this dream out of my mind I prayed over it, when I woke up I felt such peace and I had chills all over. I have been told that it was a sign of brokenness and healing and that also I need to start getting my house ready not meaning the home I live in but my my soul the house inside my heart my soul. I just went through covid and came home approximately 5 weeks ago and still suffering I just wonder if this may have something to do with it I want to believe Jesus came to me and allowed me to wash his feet.

In 2014, I dreamt that I was kneeling before a man, and washing his feet. I tried looking up but was almost blinded. I could not see the man, just the most perfect light I had ever seen. I woke up missing what I knew to be Him, a longing that I cannot quite shake.

The Lord says that the one who called this prophet false, was actually the liar. Let God speaking to you in dreams draw you to Him first, before any man/woman.

Thanks for all this interpretation, it has really helped me out here. I had a similar dream last night where my foot is being washed. Please my brethren pray for me and God bless you all.

You will find you meaning to this dream in John 13. What christ was doing was forgiving you and getting you ready for ministry. He did the same thing to the aposles feel in John 13

I am not sure what the bible indicates about interpreting dreams. There seems to be a warning against it if you do a word search, but I'm not sure if that is a strict prohibition.

I have not heard of that being a common false dream, but I am also very wary of churches having witnessed a number of people and pastors in sin. I would agree to also question your pastor who said that. Question both men directly.

Also you should ask Jesus himself in prayer to clarify this for you. In your dream, the person did not say he was Jesus so I would not assume so until you get some confirmation.

Again, ask Jesus.

Jesus is telling you that the way to evangelize others is by serving others. Enter into their world with humility and love.

I think your pastor lied to you about it being a common dream sign of a false prophet - it's the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. Really you should be more wary about your pastor!

The Dream means that to find your higher self/get closer to the creator/tune to your spirituality. Jesus, as your conscious mind knows him is telling you that there is no need to worship. God gave you everything in abundance already and there is no need to be a servant because you are/ we are all extensions of the creator. The bible (put forth by the King and his "interpreters") has confused truth and free will with fear and manipulation.

Jesus washed you feet because you are capable of all that he is. God is inside and you can find the creator by means of the heart and trust. What you ask for will come when you trust yourself.

Last night I dreamed that many people came over to my home to wash my feet. I was concerened because I thought that only happened in the bible and once a year during Lent at the foot washing mass. I kept telling everyone that this was crazy and to please relax and have fun. Everyone seemed so excited to wash my feet and I kept objecting. Finally, my husband was the first to wash my feet and then about 20 other people followed. I was really worried the entire time, thinking that this must be a dream, and why would people want to wash my feet. I finally relaxed from my hystaria that this was a dream and sat in the special chair that appeared in my house. I accepted that this was really happening and that I was being rude by refusing, because all these people kept happily insisting. I watched as they removed some black dirt on the balls of my feet. The then all took turns making sure that I was clean. They put me in a white gown, and left my home peaceful and happy. The entire time I was trying to wake up, but everyone told me this wasn't a dream, but how things were suppose to be. When I woke up I couln't shake the confusion of the dream. So perhaps you all can help me make some sense of this dream. The people were a mix of friends and strangers, but all of them seemed to be very happy and excited to perform this ceremony.

A very good and written story, thanks for sharing it with us. I think that dream was quite beautiful and not many people could have one like that. I just think it was awesome.

Well, I don't know that any of us can fully interpret your dream, but as I see it... First and foremost, I think God would have let you know, through the gift of discernment, immediately if the prophecying was false. Your soul wouldn't have beared witness to the message given. You would know if it was too far fetched from what God is leading your soul to do. (Although, harvesting souls is a calling for everyone, a general calling, I believe there must have been more to this.) If you feel it was right and there was more to the message than what I have read, then here's what I feel the dream means.
Spiritually, you were being prepared to enter into a new deminsion in the spirit and the old things were being "washed" away. You were probably also receiving an annointing. Both your spirit and the road you are to travel from here on... God is ready to take control of your life and lead you to the destination in which He has called you to. An annointing and cleansing all in one.
I'd take heed to the call and worry not about the trivial details and the words of man. Follow your spirit and God's lead.

Jesus was rejoicing in Gods beauty as he washed your feet. You are a creation of God and can become closer to God as you allow Gods energy to flow freely from inside you. You shall become your own prophet.

I've had many dreams after I became a follower of Jesus Christ. Though I've never had the dream you describe. What an amazing dream! (It's only been about 1 year since I became a believer, but God has blessed me over and over again with so many wonderful dreams). I've learned to interpret my dreams (and on rare occassions for others). The most important thing to your own dream interpertation is to pay attention to everything you felt in that dream. My first and only dream with our Lord Jesus was filled with an immense love and caring from Him. Go back to scriptures and read about it. What was going on in your life at that time? Write it down, and pray about it! I'll pray for you too, I hope you find your answers.

Thank you. I feel as though I was led astray and wasted so many years. The other stories here are so wonderful and inspiring. Lionel's story really shook me and I pray he gets back his enlightenment.

That was a beautiful dream! I think that your paster was wrong, and that you were sent a wonderful message by Jesus.
