I have dreams about demons on a constant basis. I can not figure out what they mean. The dreams are so real and scary that it is hard to fall asleep at night. The demon is in almost all of the dreams but difference circumstances. An example of my dreams are:
I am laying in bed asleep and all of a sudden I hear a loud rustling at the end of the bed. I wake up and my eyes try to adjust to the darkness. I catch a shadow by the window. It is over 6ft tall and wide. I can not see what it is wearing. It is hooded around the face. All of a sudden I am feeling fear. I blink and the demon is next to me at my bed. He touches my legs pushing them. I try to turn away from it but it is hard to move and time slows down. He leans down and starts growling in my ear. I wake up for real after this. I am shaking, sweating and close to a panic attack. I decide to sleep on the other side of the bed the next night. I fall off to sleep and again I am woken up by the demon making noise. I know it is just a dream but I can not wake up. He is angry that I have changed bed sides. He starts pulling my legs to drag me off of my bed. I am finally able to move. I try to grab the lamp to hit him over the head but I can't. It is out of reach. I turn around and hiss at it. He yells with a strange shriek and vanishes. I wake up, scared out of my mind. Another time the demon picked up my whole bed. I tried to wake my daughter who was sleeping next to me but I was frozen and could not scream. Alarm went off and pulled me out of the dream. The latest one happened last night. Only I did not start out sleeping in the bed. I was in my living room and said I am sleepy and need to go to bed. I started floating to my bedroom door and then I am in bed. The demon appears by my closet. He knows I have changed back to that side of the bed. I can't move. He pulls hard on my legs and it hurts. His grasp is incredibly strong. He flips me over on my stomach. I try to fight but I can't. He flips me back over on my back this time though. I am at the edge of my bed. He leans down extremely close to my face. I can't see his face. I am thinking of biting him on his chest. The demon starts breathing heavy. I can smell his breath. It is disgusting. Like rotten eggs and decay. I then wake up from the dream. I turn on the light. Still scared. I never have the dream with the light on. But I hate sleeping with it on. I am 29 years old! I'm not afraid of the dark but of the demon that haunts my dreams. I guess I have had probally 20 or more of these dreams. They are getting more intense as time passes. I'm not a very religious person. I believe in God and Heaven and Hell etc.. I do pray at night. I have not had any major life changes. Can anyone shed some light on this subject?
Im really sorry about what youre going through. Noone deserves to go through that sort of torment, especially while youre trying to rest. I know you mentioned you believe in God, and pray at night, but I want you to know one more thing: There's a scripture somewhere that says Fear doesnt come from God. Meaning, evil attempts to make us confused or afraid, for some reason, but if you have faith that God will not allow you to go through anything that you cannot handle, you can rest alittle easier, please see
1 Corinthians 10:13
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
I know, this really isnt a 'temptation' exactly, but I believes it applies because you are going through a trial here. I know you pray to God, and that is so helpful. Believe me, I realize its really not easy to go through terrifying dreams. Some people say, its only a dream. Well, that's ignorant, because dreams ARE as real as can be while youre in the moment. God is a protector. If you are IN CHRIST, I believe His Holy Spirit will comfort and protect you. Im sorry this answer is going so long.
26You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, 27for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
Ask yourself, how are you supposed to be 'baptized into Christ?'
1 Corinthians 12:13: "For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit."
The 'one body' this is referring to, you will see when you read this context, is Jesus.
John 3:5: " Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." This verse clearly states that one must be "born of water" in order to attain Heaven after death. Some theologians have interpreted this phrase as referring to water baptism; others interpret "water" as referring to the Word of God, as in Ephesians 5:26: "That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word." I say, why cant it be both meanings?
1 Peter 3:21: " The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:"
There is no mention of sprinking in the scriptures. Baptismo is the greek word for baptize, which means 'to immerse.'
And finally, an example of 'baptism.' Read Acts 8:26-40..
I apologize. I didnt intend for this to become a sermon. I just wanted to help get you some spiritual comfort. I have been through sort of similar occurrences, and feel for you.
I will pray for your peace and security. I wish you well!
In christian love,
It means that your scared of your future.
