Devil In My Dreams

Last night in my dream I was lying in my bed and was being pushed down by something I couldn't see. Then it dragged me by my legs out of my bed and had me floating in the air. I couldn't wake up, until I realized it was the devil. After that dream I woke up crying. Can someone tell me what this was?

Paul, By the same token why do you automatically assume it's demonic influence?
For "religious" people everything has to have a "spiritual" connection, it's part of their psyche.
Satan uses persuasion,not force! Fear of eternal "torture" is one of his main tools! Slandering God to make "Him" appear demonic!

By the way, during sleep "paralysis" you are unable to move OR speak (that's why it's called paralysis).
By the time you speak "Jesus" you are in a normal waking state.

Why do you automatically assume that people are misstating their event and misdiagnosing the problem?

Do you not believe demonic forces exist and are prevalent in society today?

I realize theirs not a devil behind every bush but lets be real.

God Bless, Paul

It's not that long ago that people thought that Schizophrenia,Epilepsy, Parkinson's,Turrets syndrome etc. were demon possession. Medical science has proven otherwise!

Jess, A recent study of 13,000 people showed that almost 40% suffered some form of hallucinatory experience,drugs,stress, depression etc.. check with your family doctor if this persists

Some call these kinds of occurrences sleep paralysis but they are demonic attacks.

I had an experience like this as a teenager and then later as an adult. The first one I woke up and looked to the left to see a male shadow figure kneeling on the bed staring at me. I told it in Jesus' name to go and it dissipated into the closet. I must admit I slept with the light on for quite a while after this and could sense an evil presence many times.

The next one the shadow was at the foot of the bed and was trying to get at me but couldn't because there was a bright light behind it that was stopping it from attacking me.

These experiences are very real and unless it has happened to you personally I wouldn't make light of it.

As scary as things get when these demons are upon us, just keep in mind they are nothing but a fallen creation of God, just as we are.

Not even Lucifer himself could stand against the Lord. Satan will be bound by another angel. He is a creation of God. God has complete power over all his creations. Theres no need to worry. If you have the Spirit of Christ in you, you have power - the very power of Jesus IN you. Dont doubt it!

The few times it has happened to me has taught me the power of the name of Jesus.

I think God allows evil things to come upon us periodically so he can show us his power. It builds faith.
---Jasheradan on 3/28/11

Make use of the name of Jesus and by faith cover yourself in his precious blood.

Hi, Jess . . . I am Bill . . . pleased to meet you! God bless you!! I can not tell you that you actually were dragged off your bed and really were floating in the air. If you were asleep, you could have been exeriencing that which was not really happening. But "There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment," we have in 1 John 4:18. So, I would say you were being effected so you were caused to fear. So, you got proof that you need to get with God in His love so you can not be made to fear. Trust God to do this with you and all of us who need this, too, please!!!

Yeah sleep paralysis that just so happens to cease when you call out the name of Jesus.

Ive had it happen to me before. The ones who havent are simply too frightened to admit it is demonic in nature.
---Jasheradan on 3/28/11

I agree with Paul. This is a demonic attack. Have you ever played around in the occult? Astrology? or something the Lord tells us not to dabble in? When and if this happens again, scream out, "Begone in the name of Jesus." GO in Jesus name." Demons must obey the name of Jesus. Keep using the name of Jesus, demons must listen to the name of Jesus. Make sure you know your authority in Christ Jesus. Demons know if you do or not. I move in the deliverance ministry, but try not to...only when the Spirit of God rises up inside of me and I command a demon to come out in Jesus name. You have the same authority in Christ that I do - just use it.

This sounds more likely perfectly natural phenomenon called "sleep paralysis."

Look for a natural explanation first before you start dragging the devil into it.
---Cluny on 3/27/11

You will be scorned and mocked here by some but I know for a fact this is a real spiritual attack that you MUST learn to fend off by exercising power over it in the name of Jesus.

You were not totally asleep, you were in the transitional phase called light sleep before reaching deep sleep.

This is when your mind is in a state between conscious and un-conscious thought.

When you are most susceptible to such an attack.

Pray strongly before you go to sleep and seek God's power to protect you, and realize the power over the enemy in Jesus name.

You will call out to Him in this state.

Most people who have a deliverance ministry are exposed to this in preparation for their ministry.

God Bless, Paul
