Demonic Influence: Dreams

27 Apr

Demons seek to control you through even the most innocuous things. How do we combat them?

Demons and fallen angels are about control. They are assigned to people from their birth and aim to influence the person’s life in subtle (and sometimes overt) ways to bend them to their will. If the person obeys them and falls for their traps, they gain more ground over them. Ground is legal rights for a demon or fallen angel to interfere in that person’s life.

Examples of people who have given themselves over to strong demonic influence are religious fanatics and occultists. Both live their lives practicing rituals that empower the demons and fallen angels monitoring them. Their dedication to their crafts serve as a feeding cycle to their own deception.

A new initiative God has undertaken is freeing His captives from the likes of the occult. The occult is a noteworthy field of study because the nature of it is that the person is drawing evil spirits to them in a very overt way. Activities like ouija, palm reading, fortune telling, etc. are surefire ways to invite demons to oneself.

Yet there is a way demons and fallen angels try to establish control over people in a subtle way that seems harmless and even fun: dreams.

They tried this with me. The dreams would come in different categories that I am going to lay out because I know they’re doing this to the people who end up coming to PSM for help. The dreams tend to fall into the categories of 1) posing as God 2) stirring up fear and 3) commanding that the recipient of the dream does some kind of action.

Demons and Fallen Angels Posing as God

This is happening far more than people know. The vast majority of people claiming to have heard from God have actually heard from fallen angels misleading them. Fallen angels pose as different gods whether it is pretending to be Jesus, any God from the trinity, and a great number of false gods throughout different religions. For me, it was a fake Jesus. The one you see in paintings. One dream he sent me had a Godly voice call out to me and say, “You will be born again when you can say: I am with you, even unto the end of the age.”

There was no reason for the Lord God to have told me that then. When God would come to me in dreams, it was often to show me my sinful nature to help me understand why He was about to bring me rebirth. The deceit of the dream posing as God above was to get me to put my faith and hope in it. If I had done so, the fallen angel would have had more legal grounds with which to distract me.

What one needs to keep in mind is that when they receive a dream, they must test the spirits by waiting on it. Do not just immediately assume it is from God and act on it. You’ll end up a sitting duck just asking for a fallen angel to put on some robes, appear to you in a dream claiming he is God, and having you run around in circles trying to “serve him” when he’s fooling you. If you look at the testimonies of people who have had false conversions, you will find that many spoke of having dreams where a religious being came to them with a great revelation. Such tales are laden in deceit.

Stirring Fear

By putting the target in a state of fear, that person is more susceptible to demonic influence. The person is less likely to act rationally because their heightened emotions will fog their ability to resist attacks from evil spirits.

Any and all nightmares are from demons and fallen angels. When one sleeps, what you see in your dreams is your spirit in the spirit realm. Things like monsters, demons, cartoons or people doing evil things in dreams are from evil spirits taking full advantage of the person’s vulnerable state to instill fear into them.

Sleep paralysis is another form of demonic influence over a person during sleep. Your spirit does not have much autonomy in the spirit (unless you’re born again) and is therefore susceptible to the overpowering actions of demons.

One dream I had showed the fake Jesus walking a path and gave me a sensation that I was following him. At the end of the trail was a grave. The message was clear: George, I am going to kill you. Yet if that fallen angel had the ability to kill me, he would have done so already. Instead, here I am alive in Christ speaking to you.

When you have dreams, nightmares or things showing you things that are alarming, do not panic. Keep a cool head and analyze it from a logical point of view, then wait to see if there’s any truth to it.

Commanding the Dreamer to take Action

This is the most direct way demons seek to gain control over their targets: telling them to do something. If the person obeys, they are drawing closer to the evil spirit ruling them because they are consenting to their ungodly suggestions.

One clever way they do this is using their ability to pose as different people. An example of this from personal experience was a dream wherein an ex-girlfriend came up to me on the street. She was telling me the real, true Gospel and emphasizing sin, resurrection and rebirth to me with great zeal. The dream was intended to show me, “look, this woman is right for you. Get in touch with her and be with her.” Yet I knew she was still in false religion and such a venture would prove futile. If I was to believe everything I saw in a dream and acted on it, I would have been in more bondage and possibly attached to someone on a different spiritual path than I was.

Sometimes their methods are more overt where they will literally tell you: go do this, go do that. Other times it’s more subtle and a suggestion like the above.

Conclusion

Dreams are a soft spot for many people. We have seen great saints like Daniel and John receive dreams with information that is still being studied to this day.

And that’s where the devil comes in. He knows that people want that special communication with God. Who doesn’t want to think that God took time out of His day to reach down to one of His people and give them a special message?

We do not have to completely give up on dreams and throw the baby out with the bathwater. What we need is WISDOM and to exercise it by heeding the scripture wherein we are to test the spirits, meaning we wait on dreams and watch what happens if we cannot quickly deduce that it is of Satan.

I also caution the reader to not allow dreams to fill up one’s mind throughout the day. If the devil can come to you 2 nights a week and have you thinking about those dreams for the other 5, then he is taking up rent in your head which will cause more demonic attack due to the accepted ground.

It takes great wisdom to interpret dreams. It takes even greater wisdom to accept that we are to walk by faith and not completely rely on them. Dreams have their place, but exercise caution and wisdom always.

    Is a dream of Jesus coming off of the cross a true holy spirit dream from God?
    Jesus in this dream had black hair and a red sash on with his face a bit blurry with bright pastel iridescent light in the background shining over the cross in rays.
