A dear Sister in Jesus Christ asked us to help her and pray for her because she was having bad dreams. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”(James 1:17). A good dream is definitely a gift from God, our loving Heavenly Father. A bad dream is from the enemy (the devil). The best way to fight the devil is like Jesus did in Mark Chapter 4. Every time the enemy tried to get at him, Jesus would quote the scriptures to him. Jesus would say to him “It is written”. “Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, and saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; and saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.”(Matthew 4:1-11). “For a dream cometh through the multitude of business;” (Ecclesiastes 5:3a). So if you fill your day with good things you will have good dreams. It is also so important to really pray and pray with your children. And even lay hands on their head and hold their hands while praying for them before going to bed. Be very careful and prayerful about what you watch on TV, and the people you hang around with. You could be opening a door for bad spirits to come in. “Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?” (Proverbs 6:27) We pray every night, and claim the Blood of Jesus Christ over our children, ourselves, and our property, and ask the Lord to give us good dreams from him. Also pray over inanimate things that come into your house and every person, and animals’ Bad spirits are always on the look out for a way to get in. “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”(Philippians 4:8). Remember the devil hates the Word of God and the Name of Jesus, and he will flee every time. You just need to rebuke him in the Name of Jesus Christ whether you are still in your dream or have woken up. One time while I was sleeping a bunch of demons attacked me in my sleep, and I jumped up and started rebuking them in Jesus Name and they all fled, and one time I woke up from a sound sleep and looked over at the side of my bed and saw an evil face staring at me with snakes for hair and I yelled out to her, I REBUKE YOU IN JESUS CHRIST NAME !!! And poof she vanished. Another time I woke up from a sound sleep and I could feel a presence of a spirit laying on top of me, and jumped up and started rebuking her in Jesus Name and she left. I could go on and on, but I don’t want to glorify the enemy either by talking about him too much. Martin Luther once threw and inkwell at the devil and rebuked him in Jesus Name. If you read all the classes on Prayer in www.answersintheword.com it will surely help you and strengthen your faith. Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”(Ephesians 6:10-18). “For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; when he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, that he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man. He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.”(Job 33:14-18).
Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
