A father is a man who has begotten a child. The Bible mentions fathers several times and seeing a father in your dream can mean several things. It could represent someone who has physically birthed a child, the first person of the Godhead, a spiritual father, a forefather by lineage, the Abrahamic covenant, or an authority figure.
Positive: Dreaming of a father can represent the Father God, the Holy Spirit, an authority that is natural or spiritual. A father could also symbolize a birthright, tradition, or inheritance in addition to a trainer, supplier of needs, the one who nourishes, or the head of household. Seeing your father in a dream may represent your natural father.
Negative: Seeing a father in your dream may symbolize religious tradition or generational curses that are passed down in your lineage. A father may also represent Satan as in the “father of lies” or “you are of your father the devil.”
