Jung says that while the Catholic church admits of dreams sent by God, most theologians make little attempt to understand dreams.
God in a dream can depict several things: a set of emotions we use to deal with anxiety, i.e. our own belief that a higher power is in charge, so therefore we are all right in the world and are not responsible; a parent image from early infancy; a set of moral or philosophical beliefs one holds; self judgment; something/one we worship; a feeling of connection with humanity; an expression of the fundamental creative/destructive process in oneself. See the self under archetypes; religion and dreams. See also individuation.
To dream of God can symbolize a need for instruction on living or an earthly commission, Jer. 1:4-10, Gen. 20:3
Vision: If you are praying: your faith is growing stronger.
If you see God or speak to him: you are receiving advice “from above” and would do well to act on it.

For them God could represent eternal punishment, damnation, and invoke massive amount guilt. Most religions consider dreams to be a pathway to God or to the spiritual realm. Through dreams we have an opportunity to have experiences which are not available during the day. Our unconscious mind may be more capable of connecting to the eternal flow of spirit and it may be the dwelling place of the soul. See Also: Jesus
