Bad dream is nothing but an empty lie from the devil and the intent is to inject fear into the life of the host so he can have access into his/her life.
Let’s check the life of Job. Most of us have always been accusing God for granting the devil access to Job’s life, but the fact is that Job himself allowed the devil to have access into his life because he allowed fear into his heart.
For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.
Before Job was afflicted by the devil, Job would always sit down and imagine himself losing his possessions, he would even draw the image of abject poverty out of his wealth and after this, he would become AFRAID. Fear will never add anything to you, it would rather unlock the gate of your life to a thief called the devil. Whatever your fear allows, is allowed to fall on you greatly.
IMAGINATION = Image + Animation
The dream you had is an image in an animated form and this can be in two ways: it’s either from God or from the devil.
If you have a dream and it’s from God, its purpose is to give you an information and to pray about it. And immediately you wake up, you’re going to have an inner witness about it from the Lord without an iota of fear. But if it brings fear, you should be aware that it’s from the devil.
2 Corinthians 10:5
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Apostle Paul says we should always cast down every imagination (Bad dream) that exalted itself above the knowledge of God (Word of God). Meaning that if the word of God says, “with long life will I satisfy thee”, and the dream is telling you that you had an accident or someone killed you, this one is above the knowledge of God already. So, you have to cast it down or rebuke it.
How do you achieve this? You quote whatever the word of God says pertaining to what you saw in your dream and then you undo it by praying the word of God and after doing this, the fear will be scared and that’s how you win the battle.
