Biblical meaning of lake in dreams

The lake of fire appears in both ancient Egyptian and Christian religion as a place of after-death punishment of the wicked. The bible makes reference to the lake with Luke 5:1 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret. However, in Revelation 20:14 “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire“.

The biblical meaning of a lake in your dreams can go either way depending the context; a lake filled with fire would be a negative omen, but one that is peaceful and calm connects you to the higher source.
