Demons Attack While Sleeping

I occasionally dream I'm pursued by demons. Christ calms my fear, Though: the spirit world (ghosts, demons, angels) somewhat intrigues me. -don't misunderstand, it's no hobby, seances=bad -but am I really being spiritually attacked or is my brain playing on my fascination/fears to process information?

Eloy is right.
After re-reading your topic I had overlooked what you say about the spirit world intriguing you.
If you are dabbling in such you are opening the door to the devil.
You would be best to stop any dabbling in spirits and the occult before you lose your soul.
---Frank on 7/21/11


Give it up, don't play with dirt or your soul will become dirty, don't play with fire or you will become burned. Spend time with Christian pursuits, Bible reading and praying and singing and worshipping Jesus. But dabbling in the occult is only asking for separation from God, and putting distance between you and Jesus, and eventually becoming ensnared into bondage and woe and cursing of your life and well-being.

[22] Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
[23] And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Many are already doing these things and the Lord does not know them
These are the same ones saying the Lord has all power and doing these things deceiving many today.
They appear to have the Lord and their proud spirit leads others to think they are Godly men when they are leading them astray.
These things are seen in so-called spirit filled churches. But which spirit?
This is what I was trying to say.
---Frank on 7/21/11


The followers of the ones I described with the scripture from Matthew are the babes led astray and are mowed over by the devil.
Many have started out loving the Lord but end up falling away from attending churches where preachers speak by the spirit of err. The Lord hates a proud spirit and many get lifted up and overtaken by the devil. Those who esteem church doctrine above the word and those who fail to recognize the power of the adversary.
Demas was listed as a helper of Paul having and even he turned away for this world.
2 Timothy 4:10 even shows that Titus fell away.
The devil can indeed get to those all the way up the ladder. He knows just where to tempt people.
---Frank on 7/21/11


2 Timothy 2:15,16
[25] In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves, if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth,
[26] And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
Those who oppose themselves are Christians doing what they know is wrong.
People are born in sin but they aren't born in a snare.
Those who do that which they know they shouldn't are snared. Snares are set for those following Christ.
The devil does not need to snare his own who walk hand in hand with him or those who do not believe to begin with.
For the great falling away to happen they must first stand.
---Frank on 7/21/11




--The worse thing anyone can teach a babe in Christ is that they have power over the adversry and not teach them spiritual discernment or the depths of satan--

How is one that has the Spirit of the living God within them powerless before satan?

Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also, and greater works than these shall he do, because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
---CraigA on 7/21/11


Frank, thank you for your answer. It seems to me you are new on site. But here when someone post something many will like what you said and say great post, but others of course will not like what you said and so will respond to your post. That is what this site is about. Since there are many religions and cults on site you will hear the going and coming of responses. I know you didn't address anyone in perticular, but expect to get someone to respond. I get a lot of them which are terrible. I expect that. On this side only the website is Autonomus. They can post and no one is allowed to answer many times. Everyone else is not autonomus. I enjoy many of your post, just to let you know that.
---Mark_V. on 7/21/11


Mark,
Nowhere in my original post did I single anyone out. The things I stated are true about proud so-called Christians being destroyed and walking in the wrong spirit while saying the Lord has more power and that we shouldn't be afraid of satan.
The light of that should have revealed any dark posts in opposition to the truth.
But, she decided to call me out by name like so many here that play their games going back and forth trying to show they know more than the others.
Maybe you are one that enjoys being rebuked by name across the net but I don't play that. Post the truth and let light reveal darkness without using names.
Which, is scripturally sound.
---Frank on 7/20/11


Frank--
I addressed my post specifically to you because I was responding to your post.

I wasn't offended by anything you said and.. I'm kind of surprised you were offended by my three line post...my viewpoint, not necessarily a "superior" one. Sorry you took what I said as a "rebuke". It wasn't meant that way. And as far as "rebuking an "elder",I don't know how old you are (I'm 70).
These blogs are public.I couldn't contact you "privately" even if I had reason to.
---Donna66 on 7/20/11


Frank, I do not understand why you felt angered when she responded to what you said. I read what Donna66 said, and in no way was she singling you out. She responded to you because you posted what you did. If I had said what you did, she would have mentioned my name so that I could answer. What she said it true. I was also going to answer you with a different response. That we should never go against the spirits of darkness.
But I could not understand why you said she had a proud spirit, she talked about the Spirit of Christ in her who is always there and protects those who are His. If a person is attacked somehow by the devil, the Spirit will warn you and will guide you on what to do. That is the anti-dote she was talking about.
---Mark_V. on 7/20/11




Donna,
Most Christians know that the Lord has superior power.
The problem is that many are arogant and do not recognize their own proud spirit which is an abomination in the eyes of God.
Many Christians have fallen because they never acknowledged the power of the devil.
Anyone can say the Lord has more power. Even those who like James and John who asked to call down fire from heaven do not know what spirit they are heeding.
The worse thing anyone can teach a babe in Christ is that they have power over the adversry and not teach them spiritual discernment or the depths of satan. Many have fallen and are worse by partial teaching in reference to the devil.
---Frank on 7/20/11


Donna,
Adding to my first response to you it is pride to scknowledge the Lord has more power than the devil when spoken with a proud spirit. The woman that followed Paul spake the truth but in the wrong spirit. It grieved Paul to the point he cast that spirit out of her. Most so called Christians could benefit from today. Having the hauty spirit cast out of them. It can be seen on this site the way people will call others out by name. The word says if a brother offends you talk to him in private.
Since you see fit to think you have the superior knowledge and can call me out by name I have done likewise even though the word says render not evil for evil. I'll just have to hope the Lord forgives me for answering your foolishness by name.
---Frank on 7/20/11


Donna
Another thing.
The word says that light manifests darkness.
In my post I used scripture and called nobody out by name.
Obviously it offended you to single me out.
The word also says rebuke not an elder and you know nothing about me.
You would have been better off to post a truth contrary and let it rest at that as I usually do. The others here might enjoy these childish games going back and forth calling each other out and trying to prove who knows the most but I do not have time for such foolishness.
---Frank on 7/20/11


Frank--It's not "pride" or "arrogance" to recognize the superior power of God.
We are to be aware of the wiles of the devil. He WILL lay out a snare. But if, by accident, we fail to see his evil plans, his "bite" is not fatal. Jesus has the anti-venom.
---Donna66 on 7/20/11


The word says the serpent bites without enchantment. If a person is striving to please and serve God the devil will single them out like he did Job.
Christians should know that greater is he that is in us than he that is in the world but they need to acknowledge what power the devil has.
The last thing Christians should do is to get arogant or open the door to the devil.
He can destroy Christians that are out of the will of God through pride or playing games with either the devil or the word of God. Churches are full of proud people whom the Lord detests because of their pride.
---Frank on 7/18/11


Why are people so afraid of the one who is defeated? The Spirit of our God is far stronger than any spirit of deception.

Ignorance of our enemies tactics makes us weak.

Katr, please don't listen to atheist. Please do not open yourself up to demonic actions. Avoid any curiousity of evil forces. Atheist, being who he is would especially want you to buy demonic books and open yourself up to that activity. I pray you will never do that.
---shira3877 on 7/18/11


John,


Read the DEMON HAUNTED WORLD by Carl Sagan.
---atheist on 7/17/11


Demons are spirits that inhabit human bodies with the consent of the host. when you accept Christthe Spirit of God inhabits you, the host, this too is a consensual act.

any spirit out of a human body on earth is illegal unless it is inhabiting the host with the consent of the host. If it is not, then the Spirit of God that is in you is greater than he that is in the world,including any unclean spirits. If you do not have received the Spirit of God then you are a target (and anyone else)of these unclean spirits. You should know that in the invisible realms where these spirits operate the use of your intellect to understand this realm is of no value. you cannot understand this realm in the flesh but in the Spirit. Hope this helps you.
---john on 7/16/11


A demon is an unconscious manifestation of the shadow self. In other words, as human beings we have a light or angelic side to our nature as well as a darker shadow side.
****

no idea which fairy tale or new-age religion promotes those ideas

HOWEVER - it is not from Holy Scripture

PER Holy Scripture demons are spirit beings and are VERY real and we are warned to not seek them out Isa 8:19,20

poster answered your own question your brain simply works on whatever information you give it during the day and turns it into images in your dreams

rather than concern yourself with why you dream this way pray and ask The Father in Heaven through Christ Jesus to remove these dreams from your state of mind

A demon is an unconscious manifestation of the shadow self. In other words, as human beings we have a light or angelic side to our nature as well as a darker shadow side.

The reason you dream you are chased by demons is because their are shadow aspects of yourself that you refuse to own and embrace as your own. The demons you are running from are in fact those shadow aspects of you that you are running from.

Once you come to terms with the fact that we all as humans are a perfect equlibrium of darkness and light including yourself, you can begin to love all parts of who you are no matter how dark they are and no matter how much you have been trained to fear and disown them.
---Anna on 7/11/11


The only way to deal with demons is to cast them out and rebuke the in the name and by the blood of Jesus. Jesus did not let them even speak, He simply cast them out and rebuked them. Resist the devil and he will flee. I usually have head phones on at night and listen to praise and worship, on my mp3, while I am sleeping. Jesus gave all of himself and His authority when He came to reside in our hearts and we have all authority over these forces but not of our own strength. We must rely on the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit. God even said in His word that their names, the demons or fallin angels, are not even worth remembering. I will be praying for you.
---Phillip on 6/30/11


You are being spiritually attacked. Apply the blood of Jesus to your mind before going to sleep. In your prayers, pray for protection against satanic intrusion of your mind as you sleep, and pray against satanic invasion in your dreams.
---debbie_jerido on 6/25/11


I came back for one last reply. First, thanks to those who answered my question. And to the few who didn't quite answer my question, thanks anyway. And despite my efforts, I can't help but feel I am still being misunderstood. But there's just not enough time or space to explain further, and it probably wouldn't do any good anyway. I'll just add that because of my 'interest,' I've learned how to use my faith in Christ to fight my fears. In closing, I'm grateful for everyone's time, effort, and responses. Kat out.

Leslie, I can't find "ougies" mentioned in any English version of the Bible, and therefore, I don't understand why you say the Bible forbids them.

Furthermore, I don't even know what "ougies"are, and something tells me that you don't, either. Do you? If so, can you tell us?

Glory to Jesus Christ.
---Cluny on 6/20/11


May I suggest that you plead the blood of Jesus Christ over you and your mind before you go to sleep and also pray Proverbs 3:24 (sweet sleep).

BTW, I think you can find a good part of the DEMON HAUNTED WORLD online for free. It is a good reference to help everyone to filter out the nonsense that surrounds us, such as astrology, alien abductions, etc.

\\Let me clarify: I am not involved in the occult. I find the subject fascinating,\\

Eve found apples fascinating, too.

You don't actually think you know what the Bible says, do you, Leslie?

And you've never told just what is an "ougie."

---Cluny on 6/20/11


Thanks for your responses so far. Let me clarify: I am not involved in the occult. I find the subject fascinating, but rebuking any spirits after waking up from these nightmares is the extent of my communication with any of them. (That and the occasionally thanking my guardian angel). Believe me that is not a door I want to open. And these dreams aren't usually so much being 'chased' as 'haunted,' though chase dreams and dreams in which I'm struggling aren't uncommon for me. I will consider your responses and gladly accept any more you have to offer. - Kat

Andy3996: There's no record, to my knowledge, of occult activity in my family. But that's a good question I may look into.

Vicky: Yes I am a Christian, one who is rock solid in her faith. Thanks for your advice.

My interest is more of an academic interest in the way the paranormal theoretically functions. But I would never touch a ouija board or even want to be in the same building. Seances or Tarot cards? Absolutely not.

One of the main reasons I ask this question is I have a similar interest in sharks. Sometimes I get nightmares about them too. Makes me think the demons are just dreams. Yet these dreams, one in particular, make me wonder.

Thanks again, all.

Many things we dream are synbolic and aren't what they appear in our dreams. Demons chasing you may be symbolic of things you are doing which you know a Christian shouldn't and you are deep down fearful you may go back into sin. One thing you need to do is pray and ask forgiveness for your interest in the occult,you are opening the door for Satan when you even think on those things. If you have ever had your fortune told,horoscope reading,or anything connected to talking to familar spirits or trying to speak to the dead you must renounce all occult and ask for forgiveness putting it all out of your thoughts and life Ephesians 5:11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness. Philippians 4:8 read this and set your mind on these.

Kathr, I don't think there is anything wrong in learning about demons and evil. It will help us to understand why God does not want us to go there. Many times watching evil movies all the time influencies our brain and many images stay with us. The more time we spend watching movies the more power they have in our lives. I believe it is the brain setting the images and not any demon really attacking you. Some who belong to charasmatic churches spiritualize everything and see the demons everywhere in everything. That is not so because though they have power, they do not cause everything bad that happens.
---Mark_V. on 6/18/11


Read Psalm 91 and pray before you go to your bed also go on fasting even for half a day. If you belong to a church speak to your Pastor he or she and members of the church can come and pray over your house. I hope you are a christian. The lord is able and he will set you free from demons when you pray just believe when you called his name. May the lord bless you and make you free from every demonic force. God bless
---vicky on 6/17/11


The Bible covers 2000 years of human history, and there are only about a dozen dreams of any spiritual significance therein.

What does this tell you about the likely importance of your own dreams?

Satan has two major strategies. One is to get us to not believe in his existence. The other is to get people to think he is TOO powerful and cares too much about them personally, even to make them have bad dreams.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 6/17/11


If your intrigue for ghosts (a.k.a. demons) turns into something of the occult or witchcraft (seeking phychics or mediums, reading horoscopes, getting your palms read, reading taroh cards, playing with ougie boards, reading books on the occult, etc.), then yes demons will attack you in your sleep. The Bible warns to stay away from such things or you are in disobedience to God (Deut. 18:10-12). If you are worshipping angels it will do the same thing.
