I know this is probably not the place but I know I am amongst many other Christian's or believers in god, and maybe someone can help me get some footing on this.
So lately I've been really trying to connect with god, I've been reading the Bible, praying, talking with god and trying to build a stronger relationship with him. I've always been a Christian but there's been a long long while in my life where I definitely put that on the back burner and just lived my life. Even been intrigued by dark or magical type things. Which never in an evil way but very spiritual, always looking for answers but not in the right places I guess you can say??
Anyways I've been reading the Bible and listening to sermons praying almost any time I catch myself worrying or feeling anxious, really trying to rely on god and allow his will to be instead of me stressing about everything, asking for guidance and grace, and to help me be a better Christian to serve him a better mother a better person etc, and I've felt so much more at peace. It's an adjustment because I haven't done it since I was a young kid, but I try to really catch myself in my old habits and turn to god instead.
ANYWAYS! My son is sick right now I couldn't sleep last night because of it, around 2am I fell asleep, I honestly don't remember much at all of the dream but it was me professing my love To the lord and I believe I was trying to help someone who was under attack or trying to spread the love from god to someone else. I just remember this LOUD LOUD horrific music in my head it was like opera singing but evil sounding and it was the scariest part of the dream because it was like in my head and my ears in real life but I was sleeping. Then for some reason I ran outside the home I was in and three black demons were flying or floating whatever in the sky and one was the actual baphomet. I remember being twrrified and calling to god to protect me and I was rebuking them and screaming I belong to god and to leave me alone. Finally I woke up thank god, and it was THREE AM! Like what?!! That scared me so bad even worse. And I had just the most anxiety ridden feeling that something was in my house I couldn't get comfortable nothing I put on tv calmed my nerves I kept praying to god To keep his protective hands over me and my kids and remove evil from our home and any way they could attach to us. But I swear it felt like something was just behind my back no matter which way I was laying I think I prayed for almost an hour straight. Then finally when 4am came it felt totally fine like it was SO WEIRD! And I was able to fall back asleep Around 4:30 but begged god to protect Me in my sleep and keep me from having such evil nightmares because I have never ever experienced something so chilling. Then when I woke up for good this morning I felt completely drained and my head felt so funny like I'm not sure if anyone's been on anti depressants but like that laggy head feeling when you haven't taken your medicine yet. It was just so weird. I really feel like it's a demonic attack because I wasn't close with god and I wasn't necessarily devoting my life to him or trying to be godly I just figured he'd see I have good intentions on life and always forgive me, but now I want more and I want to be a more devoted Christian and live in his eyes and I want my kids to know him And live in his eyes as well. I just feel like this time we are going through in this world is so evil and uncertain that I want the evil side to see I will never be a soldier for them and I will never be complacent, and I feel like now is the time To get right with god and the fact that maybe my spirit wasn't locked down as much maybe made me not so much of a target but once you try to get close with god this could be a scare tactic to keep you from getting too close? Maybe it was just a crazy nightmare but I have NEVER experienced anything like this.
If you've ready this all then thank you so much and if anyone had any advice or similar stories I'd love to hear them. Not sure it's the right place For it but I know I'm amongst great honest god fearing people as well!
Don't fear. Sometimes the more you seek God, the more the enemy ramps up the shenanigans. They hate you because they want to be you. You have something they never will. Salvation. Rebuke them in the name of Jesus.
Whenever I get attacked I ask the Lord to show me what I need to repent of or remove. Sin gives Satan a legal right to interfere with us, it opens a doorway which needs to be shut. When the Lord shows me what the problem is I ask for forgiveness, ask for the demonic influence to be removed and for the doorway to be shut for all eternity and sealed with the Blood of Jesus.
Objects in our possession can also open doorways if they have any occult connection. My daughter nearly died while we were on holiday many years ago. I then saw that the tshirt she had bought had a pentagram and threw it out. Ask for discernment and keep praying, praising and declaring JESUS IS LORD.
Attacked in dreams by demons? Yeah..plenty of time for me when I was young. Now no more, they wouldn't dare.
I just kept repeating the "Our Father in Heaven" prayer and keep my eyes shut until it went away. Sometimes they grabbed my arm and I'd say in my thoughts In Jesus name Get away! and kept repeating Our Father in Heaven prayer and speaking in tongue prayers in my mind. When i was around 16-20, I'd feel like my soul is being sucked out of my body, and I'd kept saying that prayer also and it went away. Now no more. If they ever come, I'll literally spiritual punch them in the face while yelling In Jesus name get away from me! I'll yell if I have to but I'll make sure I'm the one they fear and not the other way around.
Since we're not liberals, that victim mentality gotta be thrown out the window. We're children of God and if God is with us, who can be against us?
Remember…The Lord’s Prayer is meant as an outline for our prayer.
This: "now I want more and I want to be a more devoted Christian and live in his eyes and I want my kids to know him And live in his eyes as well."
The dream is the enemy's attempt to dampen your passion and commitment to God. Attacks like this are common about 2-6 months into a newly committed or recommitted Christian's life. The way you handled the demons in the dream reminded me of this verse: "Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you" (James 4:7). You may be going into a time of testing, but do not fear - the enemy wants that response. No matter what it is you face, do not fear. All authority in Jesus' name belongs to you. I pray that the peace that surpasses all understanding be with you as you take up the whole armor of God, and having done all you stand in the power of His might (Eph. 6:10-16 is another place that came to mind for you). Stay strong in His word, and you will prevail.
I woke up out of a deep sleep one night at about 3 a.m. I heard the Holy Spirit say, "Pray for your brother." I remember pleading the blood of Jesus over my brother's life for about an hour before the urgency left and I fell back asleep. The next morning I got a call from a bail bond service. My brother had been jailed - can't say why, but he was provoked into something that could've been highly politicized. Charges against him were eventually dismissed, and even though he didn't discuss the night in depth I believe the Holy Spirit had me pray for his protection from what was a particularly rough night in that jail, even for my "little" former USMC brother.
Another reason to keep connected to God - His Spirit will always speak clearly to you, and you will know whose voice it is. I think this may be the reason you had the dream - the enemy may be trying to sow doubt in your mind about whether or not you REALLY belong to God. Classic enemy tactic. You do - once you have given your life to Him He never lets you go, even if you let Him go for a time. As I write this, I get the sense that you are going to win others for Christ. No wonder the enemy wants to make you doubt your conviction! Stay strong in Him, fren. God bless you.
Smith Wigglesworth was born in Yorkshire, England, in 1859.
He never felt threatened by the devil. “On one occasion Wigglesworth awoke during the night aware of a satanic presence. Looking across the room, he saw the Devil himself standing there. Wigglesworth said to Satan, ‘Oh, it’s only you.’ Then he turned over and went back to sleep,” .
One night, he was awakened by a creaking sound in the downstairs parlor. Wigglesworth took his candle and started down the steps. The creaking grew louder. A foul, deathlike odor filled his nostrils. As he approached the room where the sound came from, he felt the air turn cold. Peering into the room, he saw the source of the creaking; a figure in his rocking chair. As he stepped closer, he saw that is was the devil himself! “Oh, it’s only you,” Wigglesworth said as he blew out his candle and returned to bed.
The moral of your post is treat the Devil with exact amount of respect he has earned, being the original faggot and all. All his elderly followers can get them some, too.
You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires, being a faggot as such. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, but rather legendary faggot-tude, because there is no truth in him, and should be pointed and laughed at. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies, and also a faggot, like those who follow him.
I had demonic figures attack me in a dream. I was in a warehouse and they were chasing me between shelves. I picked up a 4' level that was on the shelf and tried to use that against them. No idea if that was significant but I remembered that detail. Then I just kept saying the name of Jesus and they left almost like they were melting.
I believe you are 100% being attacked because your faith has grown stronger, they (Satan/demons) can’t have none of that happening!!
So continue to rebuke them in the name of Jesus, continue your relationship with Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit. Continue to proclaim yourself a child of God, and of the light (not the dark/false light/lucifer), continue to invite Jesus, his father, and the Holy Spirit into your life, to your home, and to your families and pets and friends, and neighbors and coworkers and cities, and protect all of you from evil forever and ever amen. Just keep praying.
You are on the right track. Over the target. God bless you and keep you in His love and light.
Yea I’ve had this happen to me as well. I’ve had the dreams in the past and such, but only after I was saved and the closest I’ve ever been to Jesus when I was attacked the hardest. My most recent one wasn’t so much a dream, as it has been in the past. No this time I was awake, kinda like you said…something was there with me, and not for good reasons. I actually felt fear. Like a small child would. It was interesting because I heard a loud voice, on my right side saying “what time is it?” And that woke me up. And just like you, it was 3am on the dot. I was then mocked for my beliefs. Stuff like “make sure to pray”, “don’t forget to say amen” kinda stuff. I then went from the Lord’s Prayer to just straight up asking for help. Then I felt “goodness” on my left. My eyes were closed, but my head was turned that way, where it felt safe. That was a long night. It was funny because the next day I hesitated to tell the wife. Not sure why. And that night again…3am, and our TV turned on, I kid you NOT! My wife looked at me like, “what are you doing?”, it was up loud. That night she felt a evil presence that kept her up that night. She didn’t feel threatened like I was, but it was something. I could tell this story in much detail in person, but to make a long story short, yes…we get attacked. I don’t want to say it’s normal, but it. happens.
I believe judgement is in our lifetime close. Those of us that are waking up have been given the opportunity to self evaluate, correct and judge ourselves. I feel only then can we truely understand how important forgiveness is. We all qualify.
Have faith and know you wear the armor of God.
dratbil — First of all, I hope your son is on the mend! 🙏 As for your horrific experience, I humbly think and believe that this was a gift from GOD! When the evil entity roars and tries to get your attention that actually means they can’t break through and get to you. This kind of thing happens to me all the time too. ThanQfully, the sleep paralysis has ended. I think prayer throughout the day/night works well. (I hope I don’t sound sanctimonious or conceited.) I’m from a Catholic indoctrination (still practice but I’m more spiritual, I suppose) — anyway, St Padre Pio would discuss that we should be grateful when the demon knocks (bangs) because that means that they are just mad they can’t deter you from God. St Padre Pio also recommends that we pray to Archangel Michael and to our Guardian Angel as well.
You are so lucky to have so much faith! We should actually also pray for those who don’t. I mean, could you imagine being an atheist? Anyway, don’t worry. Worry is doing the devil’s job for him. God Will ALWAYS protect you and your family. After all, GOD wins.
I hate sleep paralysis. I get it every once in awhile. It is still too much.
I can’t stand it either. It used to scare me half to death. I started praying while it was happening and it stopped. There’s a documentary called The Nightmare about sleep paralysis. I guess it’s a common sleep disorder.
Harness the power of God and never fear. Rebuke evil in Jesus’ name. I’ll keep you in my prayers friend. God bless always
I was waking during the night fighting for air. I would stop breathing while asleep. I mentioned this to my doctor & he wasn't concerned. The last time it happened I thought my wife was giving me a hug before leaving for work. I felt weight on my back, then I could feel breathing on my neck as I was having a hard time breathing. Then I could hear it snickering and knew it wasn't my wife. Still asleep I started to pray. I said deer father in heaven and it immediately left me and I woke up. I was amazed that I could pray while sleeping ! I am sure I was being attacked by a demon. It hasn't happened since. I won the battle with help from the Lord.
I had a dark spirit physically touch me during one night. I am understating it, no need to go into specifics here. That type of event is supposedly an incubus, when a woman experiences it. That was after a lifetime of knowing I had a spirit hanging around me, that I had seen drop in out of nowhere, I could see him very clearly before he vanished. I still today can describe him very well. He was a jealous one, who acted out against someone I was in a long relationship with. Like pushing on doors so he could not walk all the way through a doorway. Many different things. I was awake for every single thing, none were dreams. That spirit departed from me when I found the Lord. Of course!!
Demons are real.
My previous home was built in an area that apparently used to be woods where people would often commit suicide. As a result, we had a number of things in the house which we only learned about years later, mostly from a spirit guide:
A cold spot in front of the patio door leading to the back. It was apparently a portal.
Two male spirits were constantly hanging around the bottom of our stairs.
If she went to get a drink late at night, my wife would actually see demonic creatures walking around the house. She didn't talk about them much, but she was visibly afraid.
My wife was pushed on more than one occasion down the stairs. Luckily, she was never hurt.
She couldn't get pregnant during the nine years we were there, but suddenly got pregnant once we moved out. Apparently, the spirits prevented a pregnancy, and would have hurt our child had one been born.
On one occasion, my wife was choked during her sleep (my putting my arm on her "saved" her).
On another occasion, a spirit that I could "see" in my dreams was watching me from our hallway. Stupidly, I said "I see you," and it attacked me, trying to enter my body. It basically choked me. My wife putting her arm around me "saved" me in return.
Another time, I had a vision of a co-worker who choked me in a dream. It later turned out that she was indeed plotting against me.
In 2017, when the spirit guide explained this to us, we were told that we should move out by the end of the year. We didn't. As a result, 2018 became the worst year of my life.
The spirit guide isn't your friend. That's a demon/s pretending to help you with the other demons. Jesus, calling on His name and the Bible will resolve everything.
A spirit guide telling you esoteric histories to make you even more interested in the occult is making it worse.
Jesus Christ was indeed responsible for lifting the curse on my life later on. However, we moved out of the house, my wife got pregnant, and things haven't been better since.
First, of all pray for protection around your son. The illness is what attracts demons. Water helps, so the traditional washing the forehead, and hands and feet, is an excellent way to soothe him and ward the evil off. If you stay up all night, keep praying and don't panic or worry.
I once sat up all night with a young daughter, and recently we discussed what happened (she is a mother now). She told me she remembered that she was being attacked by demons, and I told her I was praying over her the whole night. She then told me that she knew I had saved her life.
When demonic attacks come, keep repeating you are with Jesus.
When you wake up, and you can still feel them behind you, keep repeating that you are with Jesus.
Also, I had a dream like that once, and in it, I held a sword that I was swinging in a circle around me. I kept saying that I am with Jesus, and to stay away.
Think about the lurkers who have read this, and more will. They have potentially experienced this. Others may know someone who experienced this.
This discussion is very helpful to us all, even if it never effects us personally. It may effect someone we know. God uses the weak to defeat the strong, because he is mighty.
What we do next with this topic is also important. What then shall we do after these testimonies.
I think dreams about demons aren’t fake at all, and after someone suffers the attack:
Don’t belittle them nor disbelieve them. Treat it as you would if you were there, be as engaged as possible.
Pray for them and with them. Encourage them to pray. There is no prayer to menial or little to God.
Get in the word. That is God’s direct path to speak to you. Dreams may inadvertently deceive someone if it runs contrary to the Bible. (Not here to debate which Bible translation) Test the spirit and see if it is from God.
Place your fears and hopes at Jesus’ feet. Your fears he will squash, and your hopes will be purified. Work out your salvation (meaning, strive to achieve perfection, even though you can’t). Cling to the savior, to God.
Don’t keep a secret. If you have battles, a friend who is biblically based is a great resource. You don’t have to go at it alone. Please don’t go at it alone. We are social creatures, even the introverts.
When you tell them to leave, they have to obey. They will try to come to you in a relentless manner to demoralize you, but when you hold fast to God they will give up and look for easier targets.
When they reveal themselves to you outright, it is their last ditch effort to try and turn you away.
They're to be pitied, not feared, they have lost everything and you are now escaping their grasp. That is why they confront you.
There does appear to have been an increase in darkness as of last week, during the dates that were palindromes. Their influence is waning and they lash out.
I have had now a few events (attacks?) while awake since I have started praying every day (in about two months). Twice on my right forearm and once around my neck and shoulders. Last one, I was just sitting at the pc doing my usual browsing and my arm started burning/itching (again) sorta ignored it and just rubbed it until done with my pc sitting but, when I actually looked at it, it was tiny razor thin scratch marks in random patterns. 0o, same with what my neck and shoulders did but, with neck shoulders there were two very pronounced side by side streaks about 4 inches long (along with many smaller ones around my neck). Another thing happened twice, while praying and asking to be warded by the blood of Jesus (protection prayer) I suddenly felt cold "drops" enough that I looked up to see if my roof was leaking or something, was like a delicate spray of water hitting portions of my exposed skin. Yes, attacks happen, I almost never have fluff and sparkle dreams, always nightmarish ones that disturb me at times but, use to them and am not afraid of it, sometimes I do this thing where I will realize I am dreaming while still dreaming and be able to make the nonsense quit with a thought. Has one where a bloody crazed eyed head kept chasing my around in it then suddenly, I had one of those realizations, turned and stood my ground and when the head got close I reached down and grabbed it by the hair and kicked it like a ball and off it went. heh. stupid stuff like that. I always pray and invoke Jesus as my lord and savior when I wake up and my heart is still pounding from a dream like that and fall back to sleep quickly and in peace. TBH though, the head one left me amused, the way it went flying and "scampered" away from me once I confronted it like that, seemed cartoonish.
Your symptoms are notable, those are quite intense.
You are on the right path and you are absolutely correct to refuse to be taken off from it. God is with you and will protect you.
I'm not an expert in warding them away aside from prayer and verbally stating that that the minions and the fallen one are not welcome in your home, that they must leave.
If you have a relationship with a priest, it may be worthwhile to consult them but other than that, continue as you have been, I do believe that they give up once you gain enough strength and devotion to your convictions.
I would think that you should pray over your son, that any negative influences be removed from his presence, and yours, rebuke them in the name of Jesus Christ.
I had a disturbing dream last night myself. I think the demons are very busy these days.
The other night, I had a dream that my grandmother, who has been gone for over five years now, was chasing around after a baby rattlesnake that had red demon eyes.
Take your Bible and say the Lord's Prayer (out loud) in every room. Tell out loud scream if must That if anything in this house doesn't Love The Lord Jesus Christ to GET OUT in the Name of Jesus Get out. You are a child of The Most Highest GOD, You have Power through Jesus... Bury a copy of The 10 Commandments/lords Prayer on 4 corners around your house... I have lived in 9 states and 1 country, I do this to every property I have lived in...
I have woken in the middle of the night two or three times over the last 3 years or so loudly proclaiming that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Salvation. I dont think your crazy at all. Demons walk amongst us.
I had a similar experience about a month ago. I've been praying to grow and strengthen my faith. I was in bed, and after a long prayer I fell asleep. About an hour later, I experienced what was so real it couldn't have been a dream. I truly felt like a battle for my soul was taking place. I would try to pray but couldn't, tried to call out to my husband but couldn't - I was terrified. It went on for probably two hours. I was frozen in fear. I finally did what others have said here in the comments - rebuked this evil force. I was able to get up and I grabbed a cross off my dresser and held it all night. No doubt your story, mine, and the others here are real. The evil is looking for any weakness or doubt to get a foot in the door of your soul. Evil is rampant now more than ever. Stay strong. We all need to pray for strength and unwavering faith for ourselves and others! God bless you, you will be in my prayers.
If you start making actual progress toward God then you will be attacked. As soon as I started getting in shape and making a legitimate attempt against my worst vices my job turned into hell. Just keep marching.
I never had "nightmares" or "dreams" as a child. Even in adulthood, I very rarely had dreams or anything. It wasn't until I was 38yo that I started experiencing nightmares, like demons chasing me, or catching and beating me, torture and such. It started after I confessed and found the Lord and asked Him to take control of my life. It's often said that the devil, or demons, only attack the Lords strongest believers. I feel this is correct as I wasn't bothered by these demons until after I gave up my life of sin. Once the devil has lost one of his wins, he tries his best to recover that soul from God. The more I read and believed, the worse the nightmares got. Until I was about 52yo. It just suddenly stopped. I have a nightmare once in a great while, usually while sick with fever. But I figure that's just the demons trying to take advantage of my weakened state.
This sounds like a lucid dream which allows for you to progress through spiritual and emotional matters much faster. They can be completely terrifying, but once the lesson is learned, or embodied, you'll be done with that one... but not necessarily done done. It's a lifelong battle, but being able to lucid dream through it puts you on a much more secure path and a better foundation.
I've experienced many attacks while in lucid dreams to progress on my spiritual journey, and I've been blessed with visions and messages that are indescribable. The following is from my own analyses and experience.
So, what you have to understand is that everything in a lucid dream is 100% happening. Which is very scary, but also an opportunity not many people get. These aren't 'given' to people until they reach a certain phase on their spiritual / theological journey. It's a test with real demons and all the awful things that accompany them. BUT! It's not an attachment in 'real life.' It's more of a prove that you actually mean what you profess to mean. Essentially, a put up or shut up, situation.
This is the time to embody the emotion of what you profess on your journey. You are the embodied spirit of life and love and desire to live for God and you get to radiate that feeling, that power, that force, against whatever it is that is attacking you. Become it, fill your whole body up with it, RADIATE it out at the demon. It is LIGHT coming from your body and it is what destroys the demon. Because it IS attacking you. And sometimes it can be powerful enough to manifest in the room with you while you dream, and while you're awake, which is even more terrifying but winning that battle has led to the most amazing experiences of my waking and dreaming lives. The last, most recent battle, the demon physically pulled me down and nearly off the bed.
The physical manifestation doesn't always happen and if it does, it is at the end. The final battle with that demon for that element of your faith. Ask for the protection of God as you battle. One of the simple prayers that I said over and over, both asleep and in the room with the demon was, "Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so." And along with that I would ask God to protect me. It was terrifying, but I NEVER doubted my passion and love, and I NEVER doubted God's protection and love.
Congratulations on your progress on your journey!! This is a gift that not many will ever receive. If you have any questions please reach out. You're not alone, on this plane or the others.
You are striving to please God. That's when the enemy attacks. To make you stumble. Give it no satisfaction. Prayer of Michael the arc Angel. God bless protect and save. In Jesus name .
Stay the path....
NEVER, ever be afraid, fear is the entire position that the Demons want you in, so they can collect your Energy from that fear....
Remember, to never forget, that YOU were made stronger as a Spirit, than Demons or Angels, and God intended us to be exactly that....
Faith of a Mustard seed....
I had a dream where I went into an abandoned church. I was grabbed by a demon and pulled through a trap door into a "dungeon" below the church. It was trying to attack me while I was sitting on the floor curled up rocking back and forth and I kept repeating out loud "Jesus is the son of God." This went on for hours. Like I kind of started realising it was a dream but I couldn't wake up. Then the walls started to flow blood. I kept chanting and then I saw this beam of light come through the trap door and a golden arm reach down and pull me out.
