Spiritual Warfare Dreams

"It will come about after this That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and daughters will prophesy, Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions.” Joel 2:28 (Acts 2:17)

This is for those that have received baptism in the Holy Spirit and are now showing up on the enemy’s radar as you are beginning to move in POWER. (“…but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you..” Acts 1:8a)

Dreams can come from three sources: the demonic realm, the soulish realm (our own mind and emotions) or from God's Holy Spirit— But i have good news for you… if you are abiding in the Lord, you have nothing to fear regarding dreams tainted by or from satan.  The nightscape can indeed be your most notable form of spiritual warfare as you begin to move in Power, remembering that, “..our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12 
(*FYI This video is an upgrade from my video called:  Warrior Intel)

So I had a major dreamscape revelation when we relocated to a new city.  I realized a sequence of the same night battles I had already experienced in the same order that they happened, but at a much advanced rate!  What took years before was now flashing in weeks and months. Mind you, satan is not Omniscient (all knowing), Omnipotent (all powerful), or Omnipresent (ability to be everywhere at all times).  And so that is exactly what was happening in this new territory… I was seen as a threat, but they had to know ‘how much of a threat’ by running me through their local ranks.

Why so quick the second time?  Well, when my spiritual eyes first opened I hadn’t enough experience to implement ‘binding and loosing’.
Matthew 16:19, "And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."
However, by our move, I had become quite the spiritual policewoman.

Important strategy….
Learn to use your authority!  If you’ve received the baptism  in the Holy Spirit, by golly, you have POWER and Authority in Jesus’ name.  After every attack, immediately bind and cast the attacking spirits to the footstool of Jesus.  if you don’t, the same ones can come back more and more equipped because each time they’ve went back to share their intel and get new orders from the chain of satanic command.  Do you want them to get a time out with their coach to discuss new ‘plays’ or would you rather take out the quarterback and they have no clue what to do next??
When you exercise authority, they disappear from the enemy’s camp, being sent to Jesus for judgement (The Lord said to my Lord, "sit at my right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool." Psalm 110:1 (Matthew 22:44, Mark 12:36, Luke 20:43, Hebrews 1:13, Hebrews 10:13  Acts 2:35)
Even so, other demons with similar assignments may be sent against you… the enemy is watching your fruit & if you are failing in temptations or whatever in the day, they aren’t going to expend higher ranks if you won’t cleanse and go higher. 

Many people cry out about all the night demonic attacks & profess ‘doing everything’,  and yet during the day they are secretly engaged in dirty jokes, coarse jesting, peeking at porn or keeping bad company.  If you are using your authority but not conforming to Christ Jesus, I imagine it’s like a hostage crisis… you bind it & cast it… you continue to sin…satan points that out to God… and does that demon get out of jail free and maybe bring some others along with him to turn up the attacks?
*Note: ABIDE in the Lord Jesus Christ for results...
a·bide [uh-bahyd] Show IPA verb, a·bode or a·bid·ed, a·bid·ing.
verb (used without object)
to remain; continue; stay: Abide with me.
to have one's abode; dwell; reside: to abide in a small Scottish village.
to continue in a particular condition, attitude, relationship, etc.; last.
Before I get into talk about rank and sequence, I want to talk about making your home your safe-place and axing any gained access the enemy may have to legally go before God to torment you. 

The enemy gains access by sin.  So it is first and foremost that we abide in the Lord in order to be covered under His hand of protection.  I encourage you to check out the Spiritual Housecleaning Series so you can focus on cleaning any access you may not realize is a gaping spiritual hole for the enemy to jump right on in.  We can’t be so dull to only look at what we believe are ‘big sins’ and say “I’m not doing ‘that’, I’m just fine.”, No… there is much to look at in way of true repentance, forgiveness, soul ties, healing soul wounds, generational curses and things we’ve picked up over the years that are idols and or cursed objects.

After we clean up ourselves, we clean up our surroundings ("Enlarge the place of your tent; Stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, spare not; Lengthen your cords And strengthen your pegs.” Isaiah 54:2).
We ask God to reveal the shedding of any innocent blood, any evil events past or present that the blood of Jesus must cover and break it’s authority over our property and then we go as led from there.
Prayer-walk your borders, anoint, consecrate, invite the angels in…. ask Jesus what to do.

Bring the presence of God in by creating an atmosphere of Praise, Worship and Thanksgiving…
The psalmist David said, “I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will show forth all thy marvelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High. When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence.” Psalms 9:1-3

and remember, Romans 10:17 “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.”, so by being in the word , surrounded by it and professing it, it becomes your effective two-edged sword of the spirit (Hebrews 4:12).

At bedtime…
Pray and take authority over all that is yours and invite God’s warring angels to protect you (“Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” Hebrews 1:14)
Playing bible-based praise and worship music or the scriptures being read at a low volume all night long is something we’ve done, because the Word does not return void (Isaiah 55:11).

Levels of Attack…

Fleshly - ie. Incubus and Succubus
I’m not going to go into depth because I have a great video on this very subject.  These either tempt into sexual dreams, or rape.
Pt 3 Birds, Bees, 'Coming of Age', What Happens Spiritually?
(If you engage in the sexual encounters, deliverance from a spirit of lust etc. needs to happen, pray and seek the Lord on that … deliverance edu is in the Spiritual Housecleaning series
You also must WANT to be delivered:
'Pleasure Spirits' - You Have to Want Them Gone to be Delivered

Terror - Deal with intimidation…. suppression, ‘can’t breathe’, chasing, some alien abduction stuff — evoking FEAR.

Programming - These sort of dreams can happen at any level but I wanted to put them in with the frontliners simply because this should be an easy one if you’re actively training in taking every thought captive unto the obedience of Christ Jesus.
As an example…I had a dream where there was a quick view of an alive, but rotten torso…. as if a hunk of meat.  Dreams like these are attempts at trying to program your day with a negative attitude.
It was ‘disgusting’ and so you know how someone will say something during the day and your response may be over-reactive to the point of belittling another?…. well, that’s what this ‘disgust’ thing was trying to do.
And  think of the many ways to program for a negative outlook… but He tells us to choose life, to hope the best in all people and so on in the Word.

A note on Astral Projection….
Those in witchcraft can tap into demonic spiritual travel and join in with satan’s attacks to spy upon us, attack us in the night and intimidate. Real spiritual into the physical phenomena is noticed.  Attacks are felt in the dreamscape and can even be noted in the natural by things missing, moved around, turned on/off… like demons do but the world calls them ‘ghosts’.  They can also be a reason for ‘portals’, which I’ll mention later on.
What can you do if you think it may be an astral occultist attack?  Ask the Lord.  I can share that when I’ve prayed and asked, I will often see ‘cords’ or ’strands’ in the spirit…. people often refer to this scripture:
from Ecclesiastes 12:6:  “Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.”
Perhaps that’s the scripture the Lord gave them, I don’t know….but my advice to you is if when you pray, you see things in the spirit, you simply deal with them.  If you see fiery darts, call them down…. if you see strands, cut them in the name of Jesus and declare what the blood of Jesus has done for you, whether you are actively in the dreamscape or immediately waking up. 

Don’t say, “I forget my dreams!”, or “I never remember to call on Jesus”… TRAIN up, soldier!  Profess life and train your mind for war!

Attacks from occultists…
most will happen as a more frontliner attack because hardline occultists don’t like to mess with Christians with authority…. because it’s disastrous to them.  Occultists have testified that they’ve had friends die from going on astral attacks because a christian has commanded the cord be cut.  Soul cut from body…. not a good thing.

I have an example of an occultist attack… as an attempt to harm our finances… I knew by the spirit, by dreams and by comments on a video I did that an occultist was targeting me.  I called a warfare session with my family and then that night I had a dream.  In it, I could see the warlock and his thriving business.  He was actually having a special celebration and invited the community for a kind of open house. The T.V. station was there and newspaper reporters, as it was a big event.
When it came time for him to speak at the podium, the demons he was possessed with manifested, in that he didn’t get to say what he wanted to the people, but instead the demons invited everyone to help themselves to all his product.  There was a rush and pandemonium as the crowd took everything and because the news was there recording everything, there was nothing he could do.  He was ruined.
Because he was agreeing with satan to attack our finances, and because we exerted our authority in Jesus… it was his finances that were destroyed. 
It is not a ‘light thing’ to come after a born-again, spirit-filled believer with authority in Messiah Jesus!

Let’s move on from the Frontliners…..
When you become a Threat, the attacks elevate…
The Team-
A group of 10-15 demons that stage events to see your reactions.  If they get too close, they appear to morph or 'melt':
Psalm 68:2
"As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
As wax melts before the fire,
So let the wicked perish before God."
Team Leader -
The team's leader will use intimidation and force...things are felt!

Lab Intimidation -
This is more of the alien abduction type of thing… often veiled more because they know if you see them, then you’ll bind and cast them.  So the approach is more mysterious.  You may feel suppressed, like you are tied down to a gurney, and figures will be there and and doing things either to you or around you… but low key and you can bet they are checking you for Fear.
I have an example:
In my dream I had a closeup of hand holding a black cylinder and pushing into my left hip/socket area & when it did it was like an electric shock & made me wake up.  Didn't hurt when I got up but it was mysterious enough that I puzzled over it more than taking spiritual authority over the situation…. and this leads me to the next attack type….

Deception/Probes -

satan can come as an angel of light, right?  Well, that’s the theme here…. In the past you may have felt pure evil approach you in a dream, but in these you will not feel overt evil to warn your senses.  During these, I’ve neither felt a good or bad sensation.   Do you feel good or bad sitting next to a toaster?  Well, no…. so you can see how they get intel from you without getting exposed.
    Portals  These are like spying 'mirrors'... one looked like a black and white circular static screen.
    Machines  Like the Lab intimidation… I’ve also experienced being in a room with a machine of some sort but no figures.  I’ve also awoken to see neon-flashing machines above my head in my bedroom.  With machines and portals…. because they are being controlled, there is a ‘lag time’ in turning them off.   There were 2 occasions where in waking to the flashing machines over my head, I could really look at them for awhile.  I can only imagine that as I’m binding up the enemy, that others are having to scramble and turn the machine off… and fearfully so…. not also wanting to receive judgement.

Assassins/Violence-  This dream, I found as a one time event…. also corroborated with two other Christians I am close to.  It is a super violent, gory experience, not for the weak.  It is a staged event where assassins suddenly assault and you find yourself killing these creatures with your bare hands.  I am not sure if it’s like we have super-human strength or that our authority in the spirit realm is awesome or that these things are so expendable… but just in grabbing them it’s like your hands just rip through them and blood and yuck is everywhere.
Matt. 11:12 "From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force.”
Overcomer Dream -
Another dream you will have when your authority increases is what I call an ‘overcomer dream’.  Again, this is another dream I find gets an “Amen, I’ve had that too”, amongst other believers.  It is a dream in which you will see TONS & tons of creatures that represent satan’s kingdom but they are all lethargic.  One dream I had was were I was kind of being pursued and it seemed I was climbing a sort of mountain up through an attic.  Once I got through the ceiling access to this attic, I was on bright clouds and everywhere were almost toy-like lethargic alligators.  Some people see snakes or other sorts of reptiles.  This is a really affirming dream to have… Father God wants you to trust Him… it’s in Him that your authority lies.
In Eph. 2:6, we can see what is going on with this dream:  “…and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus…”
When do we have this dream?  Let’s look at the context above in Ephesians 2:2:  “…in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.”
“In which you formerly”…. It means you aren’t aligning with satans course anymore.

Having these kind of plateau dreams are nothing to boast about… fear and trembling is more like it.  Your accountability in abiding with our Lord Jesus Christ is held with a high cost.  We each have different callings so, some will encounter way more warfare in the night-watch because of this, and others are only anointed for a seasonal task.  I have personally noticed less dreaming and more intimate daily communication the older I get.  Another change is less warfare and more prophetic dreams. Nothing is set in stone, but I hope some of this sharing will comfort, exhort and encourage those of you having a rough time in the dreamscape.  You aren’t ‘going nuts’… you are an overcomer!

Personal warfare…
Your dreams may be showing you areas you need further deliverance in, especially if they involve animals or you may actually be experiencing deliverance within your dreams.  What have you been praying about or what has the Lord been leading you to deal with?…. pay attention to your dreams!

Principalities and Powers…
Perhaps the people are crying out and God is anointing you and sending you out to contend with principalities and powers?  I won’t go into examples here but you can look at the sitemap on my website (www.hearingGod.tv) and look up ‘territorial deliverance’ for an example of bigger battles confirmed with dreams.

Prophetic warning or protection dreams…
I have a share of a few dreams that made it abundantly clear on how to remain safe…

Another believer got upset with me and was mirroring attacks and accusations I was receiving elsewhere.  I showed that believer what the enemy was doing and how they were unwittingly joining in.  And then the warning dreams began…

I had two dream flashes before waking & then upon waking I somehow knew it was regarding this believer:
The first was of one of my molar teeth just breaking and shattering, & then the next was a glimpse of myself with one skeleton arm.
These were back to back snapshots that happened very quick and then I awoke.  The interpretations of these were that speaking to this individual would be damaging to me and reaching out in any form would be disastrous on my part.

A few days later I had a dream of going thru a kinda half underground hallway - almost like a mineshaft.  It was loaded with cobwebs & looked as though it had never been cleaned, but I was shocked because I knew I had just been there not long before and it was all clean.  Again, I awoke with this person on my mind.  By this dream it was revealed that the person was not taking thoughts captive, not implementing any spiritual housecleaning and so it was as if what all was gained before was lost.
Matthew 12:43-45 "When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, 'I will return to my house from which I came.' And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first.”
And don’t forget we are prophetically shown things so that we can pray and intercede, whether it’s for individuals, leaders or nations!  Prayer is so important!

Last night I had a negative dream that could potentially fall in the prophetic warning category as well as in ‘Programming’… in the dream it was showing our truck that in real life is in the shop.  In the dream it was showing something negative about the mechanic and something bad happening with the truck.  As I began to pray and war over the situation and calling the enemy’s plan for evil down…. I began to get pretty agitated and realized that the enemy was intending to harm our truck and relationship with the mechanic.  Had I agreed with the dream or had not covered everything in prayer I would have left a gaping hole of attack for the enemy.  The promises of God are mine.  The promises of God are yours, and with the two-edged sword of the professed Word we shall overcome!

If you are abiding in the Lord, these attacks expose every move of the enemy to your advantage!
Where most people are fighting defensively and dealing with the effects of an attack… Rejoice and pay attention to your dreams and welcome to the offensive upper hand.
God is pouring out His spirit in these days so that we might believe, trust and move in great exploits!

The Gift More Than The Giver

The Question:
"I was doing something yesterday and you popped up in my mind. I tried doing it once and am going to do it again when I sleep. I'm try to have an out of body experience and wanted your guidance on how to achieve it. I want to see visions I want this. If you have any audios that help or anything you could tell me that will help me get this experience would be great."
Unfortunately, God will often pop me into people's minds for the purpose of correction, because I won't candy-coat what people need to hear...

My Response:
That's new age... We don't seek after that stuff. Christians that have amazing experiences are because they seek holiness, conforming to Christ, humility--- walking the talk.  Special experiences are a gift of obedience. If we seek these experiences more that communion with Jesus, we are missing the mark, and that's what witchcraft is.... "I want this!".

"But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ." 2Cor. 11:3
Satan is happy to give us all our flesh wants right here,  right now.   It's hard now carrying the cross, but we must hang on to His promises-  heaven.
I tried 'automatic writing' once--- calling upon 'jesus' to 'guide' me; before I was born again. Funny how we think we can go after something in a very wrong way, but apply a little white-washing to it to deceive our 'righteous' selves.  In the scriptures it talks of the spirit of 'another Jesus'...satan is happy to disguise... If we want things apart from God we get satan.

"For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received..." 2Cor. 11:4a
2 Corinthians 11:3 is a good reminder in that we need to keep it simple.  Carnal man wants a show, fireworks, ritual, accolades and the like; but we know:  "God opposes the proud
but shows favor to the humble." James 4:6, Proverbs 3:34, 1Peter 5:5

It's not about anything but Jesus.  Simple devotion.  The simplicity in implementing the Word into our life as manifest purity.
"But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."  Matt. 6:33
Even if you lead a pure life and don't have 'special experiences', does that bruise your ego or does it press you in further for the desire of heaven?  Heaven is where 'it's at' and with Him our focus. 
So if you've been a bit impatient, turn around, repent and start again.   Trust me, it's worth the wait!
