In recent weeks there seems to have been an onslaught of demonic warfare released against many in the Body. This assult of warfare has managed to hit every aspect of a person's body, soul, and spirit. I believe this attack is coming from various sources of Jezebel, leviathan, and occultic spirits, which has been confirmed by many other main stream prophetic voices.
Along with experiencing warfare and witchcraft against my body, my sleep and dream life has been affected as well. I want to share a dream I had that was like a nightmare from the enemy. The enemy is releasing many intimidations and threats to stop the prophetic voices from moving forward. We must constantly be in rememberance God has not given us the spirit of fear but of love, power, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). As I laid in bed I could sense some type of encounter getting ready to happen, because I could feel a disturbance in the room. I finally fell asleep and went into this dream. In the dream it was night time, and there was this loud noise, vibration, and shaking coming from my hallway where my front door is. I first thought it was my cats making noise but determined it wasn't them, because they were terrified of the noise. Next, I looked under the blinds of the door and I saw this demon with the scream face. This demon was trying to make all these faces, threats, noise, and gestures to scare me. Instead of being afraid, I started making faces and gestures back at the demon, to show him I wasn't afraid and they needed to leave my door. The demon eventually left after it saw I was not affected by his intimidations.
I tend to usually have dreams like this when I'm getting ready to step into something new, or a greater measure of what I'm already doing. The enemy sends fear and intimidations to paralyze us from moving forward. We must remember fear is false evidence appearing real. If the Father is leading you into a new place in Him, know He has already or is equipping you for what's next. In times past, I would've been terrified in that dream. But I've come to realize the enemy's' threats and intimidations are often times empty. It's time to rise up in who you are in Christ, and release your roar in the enemy's face. Refuse to be intimidated!
I also feel led to share another dream about being discerning of those around you. We shouldn't become suspicious but it's important in this hour to be discerning of those wanting to get close to you, especially you prophetic voices. The enemy's desires to sabotage your progress.
In this dream, there was a girl or hairdresser who was doing my hair. She blowed dryed it, styled it, and put this special smoothing oil in my hair. When she was finished, she said I
owed her $120. I said that's outrageous, because the cost didn't fit the services I received. I was willing to pay and tried to come to a compromise of $80. She would not take my money and said forget it, and walked off in a huff.
I believe this is a warning dream to be careful who you allow to tough your covering (hair). I sense in the dream the girl was a misrepresentation of who she really was, and she was easily offended when I would not give her the amount of money she thought her services deserved. Be discerning of those around you. God is exposing hearts and motives of those around you, don't ignore it. The enemy is sending people your way to try and sabotage, hurt, and derail you. When the Holy Spirit highlights someone to you to be cautious of, pray and ask the Lord for the wisdom and strategy. Don't make a knee jerk reaction or assumption, the Lord will show you what to do. And pray for those who's
motives are wrong, that they would have an encounter with the Lord and come to repentance.
In sharing these two dreams, I pray it sheds light on what the enemy may be trying to bring in your life. I hope this also stirs you to keep pressing forward and don't allow the intimidation tactics of the enemy to stop you!
