Some animal symbolism in dreams from scripture

Some animal symbolism in scripture

Through dreams God speaks to his people, he reveals hidden and deep things through the revelation of the night, I will be looking at some animals people commonly see in dreams dream, people often see some of these animals in their dreams but may not understand what they mean or stand for, I will be treating this subject in this article with scriptural reference. It is important to note that all dreams must be guided with scripture and the holy spirit, these are our ultimate guide.

Scriptural references (Gen 1:21), (Job 35:11), (Psalm 104:21), (Prov 8:6-8)

Most times when we see animals in the dream they tend to arouse in us fear, tention etc. This is because it is something the devil uses a lot, there are some exceptions were this dream may not mean something evil I will be looking at some of these cases in this article. So depending on how you see some of these animals and what they do in your dream or vision you can know if the dream was good or bad.

* Dogs meaning in dreams (1 Kings 21:19) "19 And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the Lord, Hast thou killed, and also taken possession? And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the Lord, In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick thy blood, even thine.

Signal: bad

Reason: Dreaming of dog is not a good dream, there are so many ways we see them in dreams but the truth is that most of them are bad, dogs symbolizes demons, demons are like the soldiers of the devil, dogs can also symbolize the spirit of lust, they represent Spiritual attacks, I know a lady who had a dog bite physically and when she slept she would always see dogs chasing her, during this period when these spiritual dogs were chasing her she lost her job, and was in deep financial loss. Dogs are used to represent attacks, witchcraft attack and the Spirit of death, especially if they are chasing you or if a dog bites you in the dream

Dream of playing with dogs: If you dream of playing with dogs or stroking a dog it means there is a spirit of lust around your life at that moment, you will go through temptations of lust and fornication, I have heard of cases where someone plays with a dog in the dream and then in reality falls into the temptation of fornication every single time they had the dream

Dream of dogs stealing from you: This is also not a good dream, it means some powers have being sent to make you suffer loss, depending on what the dog stole that can be used to ascertain what you have lost, if a dog steals your clothes pray that your Glory will not be stolen, if it steaks your money then there is an arrow of loss sent to your finances

If a Dog is protecting you: If you dream where you see a Dog trying to protect you by barking at someone then it means you will begin to earn people's trust, certain person's or a person will entrust something in your hands, it could also mean that God is protecting you from danger

Real life examples from experience and meaning

1. I had a dream where I went to a big house, I couldn't enter because dogs were seriously barking at me? meaning> This means that a barricade is blocking you from your destiny helper,

the devil has mounted spiritual dogs to ensure that you cannot connect to your destiny helper

2. I saw in the dream I was attacked by a dog and it bit me on my hands? meaning> this means the arrows of sickness and death have been shot to you, you need to pray especially against sickness

3. I had this dream where I was playing with a puppy? meaning> you need to pray against the Spirit of lust, there is a demon of lust attached to you

Prayer guide

If you fall in category 1 and 2 you will do a three days prayer and fasting break by 6pm each day, pray with Psalms 51

If you are in the third category do a seven day prayer and fasting, cast out the Spirit of lust and pray with Psalms 50

*Cow meaning in dream (Gen 41:4) "And the ugly and gaunt cows ate up the seven fine looking and fat cows. So Pharaoh awoke."

Signal: bad

Reason: Dreams of Cows symbolize witchcraft and satanic attacks, when you see so many cows in your house or around you, it means there is a high witchcraft activity where you are it is not a good dream, when you see Cows destroying what you planted or eating it up, there is a witchcraft hand upon your business, when you dream of a Cow giving milk to it's calves, it means there are some powers attacking your children, check the education of your children and how they are coping, if you dream of Cows chasing you it is a form of Witchcraft opression

Real life examples from experience and meaning

1. I was walking on the road I wanted to cross to the other side but then I saw these cows, they were so many, so I could not cross to the other side of the road? meaning> what this means is that there is a witchcraft hand upon your life to further delay and to slow your journey in life down

2. A cow was chasing me in my dream what does it mean? meaning> This is not a good dream as it shows you are being checkmated and attacked by witchcraft powers, pray against, sickness, accident or any form of attack

3. I was in a dream where I was in the midst of so many Cows, they obeyed me when I spoke with them? meaning> you are in the midst of terrible and demonic people but God has given you dominion over them

Prayer guide

Arrange a fasting program for 21 days and pray against Witchcraft attacks, manipulation and opression

*Dream Symbolism of Pig (Matt 7:6) "Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you."

Signal: bad

Reason: When you dream of Pigs it means so many things depending on how you see it, but generally dreaming of pigs is not a good dream, it symbolizes rejection and loneliness, if you dream of being given a pig it means difficulty and hardship, it is a spirit of labour, you will not find any helper as people who love you will suddenly dislike you, if you find yourself amongs so many pigs this may mean that your identity in the Spirit is being exchanged, if you are someone looking for a marital partner to settle with you will not find until that yoke is broken from your life, if you dream of eating pork meat this is a Satanic deposit of rejection placed upon your life you need to cast it out

Exception: If you dream of having a piggery i.e a Pig farm, it could mean that God wants you to have it in reality, pray that God gives you clarification

Real life examples from experience and meaning

1. I saw in a dream where I was eating pork what does it mean? meaning> there is a Satanic deposit placed in your life to chase your hellees far from you

2. I saw in a dream where I was chasing a pig like i wanted to catch it but it escaped? meaning> you are praying very hard but you still need to pray more, God is delivering you from the Spirit of rejection

3. I always dream of Pigs? meaning> Pray against the Spirit of rejection and loneliness, these are the powers fighting you, they will keep chasing you away everywhere you go to look for Job

Prayer guide

Do a three days prayer and fasting, pray with Psalms 16 and send away every power that has changed your identity

* Dream Symbolism of tortoise (Lev 11:29) "29 These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind"

Signal: bad

Reason: In the Scripture given above in Leveticus the tortoise is said to be one of the unclean animals which God ordered his Children in the Old testament not to eat, most animals listed by God in the unclean category are always been used in dreams to warn us of an impending danger, one of Such animals is the tortoise. When you see tortoise in the dream it means there is an effort to slow down your Journey by the powers of hell and darkness, it could mean delay and stagnation, when you see a tortoise in your house, it means someone has taking your matter up in the spirit and has done some enchantment against your life.

Real life examples from experience and meaning

1. I saw a tortoise at the front of my door in the dream what does it mean? meaning> there is a spirit of delay affecting your life, you need to pray and break the yoke

2. I saw a tortoise on my clothes bag in the dream? meaning> you are being attacked spiritually, they are making your life delayed in so many ways you need to be delivered

Prayer guide

Do a Seven day vigil you can also fast, pray with Psalms 3-7 every day and break the yoke of delay

* Dream meaning of Cats (Lev 11:27) " Also whatever walks on its paws, among all the creatures that walk on all fours, are unclean to you; whoever touches their carcasses becomes unclean until evening

Signal: bad

Reason: Dream of seeing Cat is not a good dream, it symbolizes satanic activities and manipulation, if you see a cat looking at you in the dream when you are pregnant then it means some powers are at work to attack your pregnancy, if you see a cat chasing you, it means there is a Spirit of death sent after you, if you see cat's often in the dream then there is a gathering of witches against your life

Real life examples from experience and meaning

1. I saw in a dream where Cat's where chasing me? meaning> This is Witchcraft attack to opress you, you also need to pray against death

2. In my dream I killed a black cat? meaning> What this means is that God has empowered you, you are going to get promoted very soon

Prayer guide

If your situation falls in category 1 above do a three days dry fasting Pray with Psalms 35

* Dream meaning of owl (Deut 14:12, 15-16) "12 But these are they of which ye shall not eat: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray...15 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind,16 The little owl, and the great owl, and the swan."

Signal: Bad

Gender: both male/female

Reason: From the Scripture above we see that the owl was part of the animals God ordered the Israelites not to eat, he referred to the owl as unclean. Dream of seeing an owl means there are powers monitoring your life, it could also mean there is someone you have offended whom you need to sort things out with, when you kill an owl in the dream it means you are going through some challenges and you are going to overcome those challenges

Real life examples from experience and meaning

1. Man of God I saw in the dream an owl on my house too? meaning> This dream means you are being monitored, you need to pray against such

2. I saw in the dream an owl looking at me in the dream I was in a bush? This means your life is under attack, you need to be prayerful as there are powers currently monitoring your life

Prayer guide

Do a seven days vigil pray using Psalms 103 and Isaiah 47

*Dream meaning of Snakes (Gen 3:14) "And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life."

Signal: bad

Reason: The serpent in dream symbolism is not good it can mean the spirit of poverty depending on how you had the dream, if you dream of Serpents chasing you it means your life is at risk, there are people who do not want you to succeed, if you dream of Killing a Snake, it means you have been given power to overcome your enemies.

Real life examples from experience and meaning

1. I was killing snakes in my dream what could it mean? meaning> This means there are some battles in your life that you have won, it means you are going to be experiencing a new chapter for you

2. I had this dream where as I appeared so many snakes were running from me? meaning> This is a dream that means you have been endowed with power from above, God has just graced you with power and you have become a threat to the kingdom of hell

3. I saw in a dream where I was bitten by a snake? meaning> this means your life is under Spiritual attack, there is an arrow of Sickness or death sent to you, you need to pray against such attack

Prayer guide

Do a 7 Days prayer and fasting, pray with Psalms 4 and Psalms 91 and rebuke every Satanic attack

* Dream meaning of lion (Job 4:10)"The roaring of the lion, and the voice of the fierce lion, and the teeth of the young lions, are broken."

Signal: Varies

Reason: Seeing a lion in the dream can vary in meaning depending on how you see the dream, if you see a lion as an obstacle in your dream it means there are foundational powers or the strong man is not allowing you, if you see yourself in the midst of lions and you are afraid but they did not harm you it means you are in the midst of people who look down on you or do not like you but you will overcome them, if you see a lion fighting for you then it means the Lord Jesus is fighting on your behalf

1. I saw a dream where I was in a prison, but the prisoners were animals one among them was a lion? meaning> this means your destiny has been exchanged, you are living in another world, you need to pray for restoration of your Glory

2. I saw myself being chased by a lion but I climbed a tree and it left? meaning> there is a demon of fear attached to your life, the strongman in your household is after your life and they are using fear as their weapon

3. I dreamt I was traveling but we reached a certain point there were so many lions on the road, so we could not pass? meaning> this dream means you are been affected by foundational powers, it means the strong man of your household are after you to slow down the journey of your life, this is a spirit of delay to make what is easy for others difficult for you

Prayer guide

Do a three days prayer and fasting, pray with Psalms 18 every morning by 4:00am and break every evil foundational power at work in your life
