Common Warfare Dreams

Common Warfare dreams Matt 13:24-25
" Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way."

According to this passage, the enemy waited till the men who were supposed to be watching the field were asleep before the enemy sowed tares in his field. The time most people are asleep is at night.

Many times evil is done to many people's lives at night time, especially between the hours of 12 midnight and 3 am. While the evil work is being done, you are likely to have a "bad" dream that wakes you up badly shaken.

Unfortunately, because many people are ignorant of spiritual warfare, they thank God it was just a dream and go back to sleep. What they don't know is that it wasn't just a dream. It was a revelation of what is going on against their life.

The best action a dreamer can take is to spend some time in prayer to use the revelations to destroy the "tares" sown in his field. If action is not taken, the enemy can have his way as long as he chooses.

Before I go on, I want to make a few important points

1. When you have a negative or warfare dream, it signifies either what has taken place, what is taking place or what your enemies are planning against your life. All of this cases require that you pray against what was revealed to you in your dream.

2. Just because you have a negative dream about someone doesn’t mean the negative thing you saw has to happen. For example, if you dreamt that somebody died. It doesnt mean they have to die. God is just alerting you to the plans of the enemy so you can stand in the gap for the person you saw in the dream.

If you will pray against the plan of the enemy, the person will not die. Many ignorant christians have become messengers of doom. Instead of praying to avert evil, they turned themselves into messengers of evil messages. Many times, God allows you to see the evil coming against someone so that you can pray and fast if need be to stop the evil from happening in the life of the person.

3. Not having dreams at all or always forgetting your dreams is an attack against you. If the means God uses many times to tip you of of the enemy’s plan is blocked, how will you know what is going on against you so you can pray against it? If that is your problem, please pray against the demonic attacks working against your dream life.

There was a period in my life when I was under intensive warfare. While there wasn't any visible manifestation in the physical in my life at that time, there was serious warfare going on against me in the spiritual realm. Eight different times I dreamt about being shot at or someone throwing a big rock at me. Around the same time two family members dreamt that I died. A pastor friend of mine called me to tell me about a revelation he got about the spirit of death following me. It was a serious warfare. I had to declare fasting and prayer to cancel every plan of the enemy. Every casket that was set up for me was destroyed by the power of God. That was about 10 years ago. Obviously the devil lost and he will continue to lose.

Let me also mention that not every dream indicate warfare. If you go to bed with a nagative thought, you may have a negative dream connected with that thought. I will like to show you how to trace the presence of spiritual warfare in the life of the dreamer.

These dreams listed below reveal the Devil's hand:

1. Sexual encounter in dreams.
This is a very common warfare dream, but since most people find it embarrassing, they usually will not talk about it. There are two spirits the enemy sends against men and women in their dreams. The first is known as Incubus, which is a spirit that sleeps with women in their dreams. The other is Succubus, which is a spirit that sleeps with men in their dreams. These spirits may use the faces of ex-lovers, friends or such. They may even come as people of same sex. Unless you wake up and wage serious spiritual warfare, one or all of the following may take place in the life of the dreamer:

  • Difficulty getting married. # Difficult marital problems. # Difficulty getting pregnant. # Difficulty in the area of finances.

    2. Dreams that result in affliction with the spirit of poverty.
    There are so many people today suffering serious oppression from the spirit of poverty. Usually people are tipped off in their dreams but because of lack of knowledge, nothing is done until the manifestation takes place. If you find yourself in the following situations in your dream, you need to start praying against the spirit of poverty:

    # Possession of counterfeit money. # Wallet stolen from you. # Wearing rags, shoes with holes. # Begging for money, food, etc. # Loss of cash, wallet, checkbook or paycheck. # Bank door closing in your face.

    3. Nakedness in a dream.
    If you find yourself naked in a dream and you frantically look for clothes to cover your nakedness, the enemy is about to bring embarrassment and disgrace into your life. If you find yourself naked in a dream, you need to search your life to see if you are involved in anything that can bring embarrassment and do something about it immediately. If you cannot think of anything, you need to bind every plan of the enemy to embarrass and disgrace you.

    4. Removal of hair in the dream.
    In women, your hair represents glory. Hence the removal of it in a dream is very significant. You need to pray against your glory being tampered with by the enemy.

    5. Dreams that indicate witchcraft activities.

    # Being pursued by mentally deranged person. # Attacks by dangerous animals. # Being shot with gun or arrow in a dream. # Feeling pressed down on the bed and unable to get up even when awake. # Bats. These usually indicate that hypocrites are going to be set loose against you. # Cobwebs and spiders. These and other Halloween favorites point to witchcraft activities. It is not unusual for such dreamers to wake up and literally run into cobwebs all day.

    6. Dreams that indicate attack of profitless and confused life.

    # Traveling but not reaching your destination. # Traveling to unknown destination. # Driving in a fog or in a cloud of dust.

    7. Dreams that indicate warfare of delay.

    # Waiting for a bus, taxi, ship, train, airplane or any mode of transportation that never comes. # Traveling in a traffic hold up.

    8. "Almost there but never there."
    There are people whose lot in life seems to be that just before they get something good, it is snatched from them. Such people are under the attack of what I call, "almost there but never there." Such people have dreams along these lines:

    # Not finishing examinations before time expires. # Doors closing before they get inside. # Free gifts finishing before it gets to their turn on the distribution line.

    In real life, those who have such dreams will have a hard time attaining their goals and heart's desires. Their lives will be a cycle of disappointments and unfulfilled promises. I have seen those who almost get married but never do, almost get a job but never do, almost pass an examination but fail by one or two points. Others have had to jump from one business venture to another and from one profession to another. Life for such people is one of stagnancy, frustration and discouragement. It is an attack of the enemy. They need to pay attention to and do something about their dreams.

    9. Dreams that indicate attacks against the dreamer's spiritual life.
    Generally, these dreams should alert the believer to the fact that the enemy wants to downgrade their spiritual walk.

    # Smoking or consuming alcohol in the dream. # Eating in the dream. This is usually followed by a period of weariness, tiredness and laziness in prayer. Just as physical food weighs down the eater physically, so does this weigh the dreamer down spiritually. # Drinking and bathing in dirty water. This is nothing but spiritual and even physical poisoning. # Loss of Bibles.

    10. Dreams that indicate loss.

    # Having abortion in a dream # Loosing blood in a dream # Taken to an unfamiliar location and abandoned. These dreams, foretell of loss of intimate friends and good relationships. They have also resulted in loss of favors in the lives of many dreamers.

    11. Initiations in dreams.
    Many innocent people have slept only to wake up initiated into various demonic societies as a result of dreams they had. Pay particular attention to these dreams:

    # Finding yourself in strange meetings eating strange food with strange people. # Swimming in the water with strange people or strange creatures. # Getting married to strange husbands in dreams.

    12. Contact with the dead.
    Many dreamers can find themselves having contacts with their dead relatives, ancestors and friends. I have heard of people who even pray for such dreams.

    The living has nothing to do with the dead. The powers of darkness have been known to utilize such dreams to transfer sicknesses and diseases into the life of the dreamer. In many cases, it turns out to be the same sickness that killed the person they dreamt about.

    Even more serious, such dreamers have been exposed to familiar spirits through such contacts.

    Take for an example the dream a lady related to a deliverance minister. She had had the dream twenty years before. In the dream, she saw a man who resembled her dead father, submerged in the ground. Only his head was above the ground level. She was naturally concerned to see her father in such a state. She went towards him in order to rescue him from his predicament. As she ran towards him, she tripped and fell; her head went into the wide-opened mouth of her father. She succeeded at pulling her head out but her father held on to her hair with his teeth. The struggle continued for a while. It stopped when someone came, wrapped her in white linen, and pulled her out of the mouth of her father. Then she woke up.

    How do you classify a dream like that? Obviously it was a bad dream that had nothing to do with the way she spent her day. Therefore she had to be under serious spiritual warfare.

    She further told me, "Pastor, from that day, I have had non-stop headache and dizziness. "I often feel as if someone is pulling my hair. I have been to many doctors to no avail."

    It might be significant to remind you, dear reader, that the one she saw in the dream might not have been her father at all. The enemy could have used the face of her father to lure her into getting close to the trap set for her.

    The fact that she was wrapped in white linen signifies that she would go to the grave with the problem. But thanks be to God for deliverance. She was prayed for, and the Lord delivered her from the headache and dizziness.

    13. Attack by armed robbers
    Such dreams denote the existence of serious obstacles in the life of the dreamer.

    14. Road blocks and padlocks
    These dreams can contain law enforcement road blocks or trees fallen across a pathway. Such dreams signify blockages in the life's path of the dreamer.

    15. Handcuffs
    They indicate restrictions in the life of the dreamer.

    16. Climbing mountains and hills
    Such dreams point to the presence of obstacles and hindrances in the dreamer's life.

    17. Automobile breakdown
    Such dreams can indicate an attack against your wheel of progress.

    18. Theft of wedding dress or wedding ring.
    This could mean serious trouble for the marriage.

    19. Children crying or screaming out in their sleep.
    This should give every caring parent concern. Only God knows the nature of the attack such children might have been subjected to while asleep. The children concerned need to be prayed for.

    20. Dreams that indicate warfare against the ministry.
    Depending on its content, any of the dreams described above can affect a church or ministry. A pastor described a time when it was very difficult to keep people in a church he pastored. He prayed to know why. Then God gave him a dream which is narrated below:

    “We were in church one Sunday morning with the church filled to capacity. Suddenly two snakes crawled into the building and confusion broke out. People ran everywhere and many ran out of the building. Those who remained decided to kill the snakes. Then I woke up. That was a dream to show me why people were not staying in the church. The "old serpent" was the power behind many of the problems that made some leave the church. I had another dream in which a big tree fell inside the church and killed some people. I ran around in the dream wondering whether we had renewed our church insurance or not. Then I woke up. I had no idea what the dream meant, but one thing was clear, it was not a good dream. I had to set aside several days for fasting and praying to deal with whatever the dream meant.”

    21. Dreams dealing with darkness
    Any dream dealing with darkness should be paid attention to.

    These dreams that I have mentioned would probably have brought back many memories of dreams to the reader. Please take time to pray against any spiritual attack that had been revealed to you in your dream.
