Dreaming of dead loved ones, Rebuke that spirit

Dream!Whenever you dream of dead loved ones you must know that the devil is paying you a visit and he will take it from your reaction what he should do. The dead are gone and soon they are forgotten (Ecclesiastes 9:5). This verse confirms that they had their share of this life and they never shall come back to this life, instead the living shall join them on the other side because the living know that they will die. David once said that he knows very well that he will be joining his late son but not him coming back to him (2 Samuel 12:23). Isaiah 26:14 in the NLT translation says, “…their departed spirit will not return!”

Where do dreams come from?

there are three notable sources of dreams:

  1. The International Standard Bible Version says that “Too many worries lead to nightmares, and a fool is known from talking too much” Ecclesiastes 5:3). These are generally thoughts you may have been pondering on for a long time. it could be days or even a few minutes or seconds.
  2. Some dreams come from God.  Job 33:14 – 16 confirms that God speaks through dreams and visions. There are many recorded instance where God sends His message to the world through a dream. Both Joseph that lived in the time of king Pharaoh and Joseph the supposedly earthly father of Jesus received God’s messages through dreams.
  3. Some dreams come from the devil. The devil has schemes to deceive many because he knows that his time is limited (Revelation 12:12). He knows that people will associate a spiritual dream with God and not only believe it but also action on the message. He appears and an angel of light to deceive many (2 Corinthians 11:14). That is why the holy Bible cautions us of the devil’s schemes.

Dreams of the dead will come but if you entertain them and not take a stand against these spirits, you will be trapped to believe it is your loved ones talking to you. The dead are never allowed to come back to this life. Their eternity has been set and they await judgement (Hebrews 9:27). Demons use their power to present themselves in appearance very similar to the loved ones. They speak in a language and present a message you will understand and relate to. Remember that the devil has a record of your life with the dead person. He knows how you fared, what issues you had and all details you may long forgotten about that person. That is why some see the dead coming back to claim what belonged to them. This then becomes justified because this demon that has assumed to be the returning loved one connects and speaks from a relevant point.

My personal Experience

I also had an experience when my father died in 2012. I dream of him coming to greet me in a few days after his burial. Fortunately, God had led me to a testimony of a person that revealed to me that demons do mimic a dead person and the solution is rebuking and praying against that dream. I did just that. I rebuked my father is the dream, telling him that he had died and I don’t want him to come visit me ever again. I just did not entertain him in the dream at all. When I woke up, I prayed against this spirit.

Just so you don’t think that it was easy for me to do that, maybe because I did not care much about him. My father was my friend. I had live close to him a longer time than most of my siblings. There was a time when we lived together in one house, I mean the two of us. He used to share with me some of his secretes that none of my siblings knew about. When he died, he was at my care. My wife had cared for him in his last few sickly months at my place. I was there to see him till the last second of his life. I did all I could to save his live and I cared and loved him so very much.

Just as I have mentioned it already. I learnt from the best fried of God, David. He let go in his heart about a child he loved and had openly expressed his love for.

If you take a close look at the many religions that are polluting Christianity these days, their ultimate source if from non-rebuked dreams that came from demons. You will do yourself a favour not yielding to dreams that come with a tag of dead loved ones. God will not use the dead to relay his message. If for any reason God choses to take you in a vision or dream to see the destiny of the dead, God will confirm Him message to you.

I advice that you pray in the name of Jesus Christ to test the authenticity of any dream or vision. All nightmares that have scared me would not allow me to call the name of Jesus. I would struggle to mention the name of Jesus because it has power to lease me from all bondages. If your dream seems to be unique and persistently comes even when you call the name of Jesus, then keep using the name of Jesus throughout your experience.

    Today is July 22,2019
    I was asleep and my great grandmother appeared before me, in all white white hair and white looking glasses maybe even sliver. And said wake up. I woke up and prayed in Jesus name but I was confused why her because we had no relationship at all. So I’m going to pray again because I don’t want no part of anything not of God. Blessings in Jesus Christ mighty name I come against backlash and retaliation in Jesus name Amen

  2. Eli says:

    I always dream of my parents but they are always warning me not to live God . To keep going. They told me they are at peace. They tell me about God’s warnings. Show me things that could happened. In a way I feel peace like I never felt before. I feel a great love emanating from them. I don’t feel a negative feeling of them. My parents passed away very young 53 they both were born again and were baptized in Jesus Name above all names Acts 2:38. I know dead people know nothing. Maybe God knows I love them so much that I need their confort holding them in my arms. I think God takes their shape to comfort me. I feel free of the feeling of loss

  3. Tawo Takim says:

    I had a dream, i see death people in my dream. Sometimes i see my best friend, also see d girls and ladies I’ve dated before doing what we’ve done before. The dream i hd recently, a lady i dated came to my dream and ws knocking at my gate. I tried hiding from her bt someone saw me n called me out. When i left to open the gate, she, (the death lady) started going back n saw some other person, she ran to greet the person. I refused to wait because i was angry. I woke up through the Mercies of GOD.

  4. Winnie says:

    Thank you so much I went through all the messages of people about evil with dead people, I have suffered same now many year, I am born again I have prayed rebuked the dreams, but same dreams keeps on coming, even after my marriage they come every night. I dream about my grandfather who passed away in 2001, my uncle and my aunty who also passed away. I have alot to explain through this horrible dream that keeps on coming for years now however much I have prayed, fasted. Most times when I dream about them they are fighting me. I have gone through alot in my life. Not able to put all down here. And those dreams I always see my aunties and one uncle who are still alive, but not in good relationship with them, due to fights we had over my fathers assets(who is dead also) . I am married 3 months now but these dreams come every night now my grandfather and my uncle who is alive trying to have sex with me, and suggesting to marry me, as I am talking I can experience some
    attacks in my marriage, where by I revealed some things which my husband hide from and they are bringing alot of confusion in our marriage, to the extent I started to question myself if really this union is from God, but I remember took my time and prayed for a partner. I have many things to say but let me stop here. I need more spiritual guidance on how to deal with all these. Truly speaking sometimes I fear, however much I try to be strong and pray. Please speak to me. Hope u will understand, because I tried to mix up many things to let u know what I am suffering from. Pray for me too I don’t want to lose my marriage.

    • It is sad to learn about your struggles. However, I want to assure you that prayer breaks strong holds. I will remember you in my prayers and you can communicate direct to me through my email account.

    • Magda says:

      Continued praying, Jesus gave us, BELIEVERS, the authority to rebuke in His name all attacks from Satan. Listen to Christian music aloud and praise the Lord in home, in car, everywhere you go. And when negative thoughts come your way, continue to rebuke in Jesus’s name. Remember, the more we look for Jesus, the more demons attack; But in every attack, praise Jesus and give it to Jesus. Put christian music at home to clean the environment and ask Jesus for joy and peace in middle of trials.???????

  5. IvaIva says:

    Hello, I hope that I can get your respond. I always had a dream of my father since when he was past away until now sometimes the dream was natural what we always do when he was alive and sometimes it was a nightmare my dad turn into demon or exorcist something like that or sexual dream and sometimes it was a happy dream about him and sometimes in dreams he always go away going to somewhere and sometimes seeing him in a dream running and more things I see him in my dreams. I don’t know what’s the meaning of dreaming him always but I believe when dreaming about demonic it comes from satan. Please help me to give some advice and answer to this. Thank you

    • Demons have many ways of influencing people to think in a certain way. They can even purpose to confuse you the longest time possible so that you die and miss Heaven. The way to deal with dreams that are confusing is to pray in the name of Jesus and quote scriptures that oppose that which you saw in the dream. Jesus quoted scriptures to deal with Satan, so must we.

      I hope this helps.

    Thank you for your article, I teach a life skills class and will be working through it with them.

  7. Krysti League says:

    My mother recently passed away and I’ve had several dreams with her in them. Normal dreams, comforting dreams…until last night. In my dream my mom calls me. She is her normal, upbeat self when addressing me. She then asks me about her dresser. She is expecting me to send it to her and wants to know what will be inside of it. I have recently cleared all of the stuff out of her dresser and closets, so I told her that the dresser is empty. She seems disappointed. So I asked her, “Mom, do you really need clothes in heaven?” To that she replied, “I’m not in heaven” with sadness and regret in her voice. I asked “Why not?” I didn’t hear her reply and then I woke up, really distressed and even doubting my core beliefs. So, to this article I say thank you. I am now confident in the fact that this dream was not really my mother communicating with me, but the attempts of the devil to distract me from the truth. I know that she is in heaven because she loved Jesus dearly.

    • The devil is crafty. I’m happy the Lord led you to this article. Sorry for the late response.

    • Jeanette says:

  8. Anil says:

    Maybe most of you are white peoples, but don’t be foolish, keep an open mind, Jesus was a real person, that I believe, but the stories, Why only a few thousand years, mankind is cunning, I can’t consider one kind of people to be a chosen one of God, Hell no.

  9. Anil says:

    I have no choice but to respect the Bible, because of the majority that cling to what is written, but I know that our planet is thousands of years before the Bible and books way before was written , so I will keep an open mind.

  10. Wendy says:

    Amen! I was not aware of how Unbiblical experiencing a dead spirit in my dreams was. Thank you for not only clarifying this, but for releasing me from the guilt of not understanding those dreams.

  11. Jashendeep says:

    God bless you for writing this post
    Now I know the truth about how it is NOT biblical for dead loved ones to communicate in dreams, or even otherwise.
    I appreciate the supporting scripture.
    Thank you so much brother Musawenkosi.

    My wife passed on sometimes last month. However, there have been visions that she is with Christ. One of my in-laws also had a vision where she came visiting home, and was glowing, shining and sparkling in some sort of white stars. Another person was taken to heaven to visit her in her home. She said she is in a big home, and she took the person to her bedroom. She laid on the bed and was smiling and looking very happy. In real life, she passed on two days after she bore our second child. So, in the vision, the person asked her why she still has a big tummy and why she left her two children behind, the person said she was just smiling and didn’t respond with any word but laughter and happiness. Afterwards, God told me in a prophecy that she is resting with Him, and that He (God) would take me on a visit to see His glory and then visit heaven to see my wife. This has greatly comforted me, but you know how it is… I miss the earthly times, but truth is she is in a better place than I am.

    I am sharing this to encourage the faith of those whose loved ones have passed on. If you are privileged to know they passed on to Christ, then be glad and rejoice, because eventually, it would not matter if we lived a 100 years or 20. Where we spend our eternity would override the few moments we spend on earth.

    And as for me, I am privileged to be a son of God, and to be loved by Him. So I am assured I would be where Jesus is, after my assignment is completed on earth.

  13. Dorine Massoh says:

    Hi mona l think you just need to continue pray because l can feel you.

  14. Dorine says:

    For me, l spent two years with my boyfriend. I got pregnant twice from him but the first time he convinced me to get an abortion because we were not ready. I was still going to school. One year later l got pregnant for the second time, he wanted me to abort again l said no because l promised to God not to do that no matter what. No lie he was a great guys, lovely, attentional etc….. l kept the baby and he left me because for him he was not ready financially and for him we where not looking in the same direction. A woman is normally supposed to listen to his man. Short story long, l went to serious difficulties after that and even lost the baby l was 16weeks . But the baby was looking 12weeks. Recently, l had a dream from my grandmother where she was claiming that God send her to give me two messages. First God asked her to tell me that he loves me so much reason why l need to stop crying. Secondly,she said l had a bad situation recently and there were a misunderstanding between me and the guy. Then l gave her the name of my boyfriend because l knew she was talking about my pregnancy and she said yes. Then, she told me again that God asked her to tell me that that is the love or man of my life. So l am confused here. I already prayed for that dream and asked to God whether it is really coming from him and if yes, to show me because my boyfriend and l didn’t spoke since June. Please tell me what you think and give me any advices. Thx

    • I’m sorry to hear your story. I will be honest and tell you that it is not God’s plan for people to be sexually involved before they are married. You and your boyfriend were in error to do that. However, this is not to say that the loss of your child is a punishment from God.

      On the dream, I don’t believe that dreams are to give us direction in life. However, whatever is biblical should be considered even if it does not come through a dream. I know that waiting on God is not easy. Often His time seems to be taking too long than we expect. If your boyfriend will eventually come back, let God do that call for you. Don’t be deceived to believe that because it came from a dream then it surely comes from God. Believing this might lead you to giving in to your boyfriend who did not respect you but abused and left you alone to struggle with the emotional loss of his love and that of your baby. If at all he comes back, never go to bed with him unless he marries you.

      my advise:
      Get a church closer to where you live and attend diligently. Ask God to direct you to the right church.
      Read the Bible even if you don’t feel like. Pray even if you don’t feel like.
      No to your boyfriend until he is ready to marry you. Pray to God for strength to forget about him but wait on God for the right time.

      I hope this helps. You may contact me on my email for more discussions.

      i will pray for you.

    • Irene says:

      There were times where I had dreams about my deceased parents in-law n my deceased grandma. Last night I had a dream about my deceased friends. When I woke up I prayed against the dream but when I fell asleep one of them came into my dream again. Pls pray for me. Lately I hv been not feeling too well n also my finance seems to drain out. Will dreaming of dead people affect my health n finance as the devil come to steal, kill n destroy.

  15. Brad Howard says:

    I had a dream when my father appeared in it. It was in a restaurant. He flat out told me that it was a dream, and that he cannot come to see me whenever he want. He said sometimes God allows this to happen, and why he does not know. He said to remember what my mother told me a couple of weeks before she passed (in 2017), that is, to live your life for Him so that they will both see me again in heaven. He also told me that mother was fine. He lead me to the back of the restaurant and out on a great veranda. It was very foggy and I could see that we were perched atop a great cliff. Off in the distance through the fog I could see another great cliff. Then a tiny light started flickering on and off. Dad said that is your mother and what you are seeing in your dream way off in the distance is the outer reaches of heaven. She is turning that light on and off as her signal to you that she is okay. She could not come here because it was not God’s will and a great chasm exists between this life and the next so the two can never be mixed except sometimes through dreams. We spoke a while longer and then I woke up.

    Question: God is omnipotent, so clearly if He wanted to this could actually be my Dad. I know that you are right when you say the dead can never return, and that that is biblical. However, are not dreams different? If that was my Dad, it is not as if he were returning to this world in real life. No, he was returning to this world as an image in my head while I slept! Does scripture really address this exact situation ? I say this because it seems that our minds are on a different plane when we sleep and dream vs when we are awake. This was the most vivid dream I can ever recall having, and I do not usually dream or at least have dreams that I can remember. Please help! Your counsel here would be most appreciated!`

    • Christine says:

      As a mental health professional who has worked in hospice (care for dying patients and their families), dreaming of the dead is extremely common and totally normal. It’s actually a healthy way to process your sadness and grief. I have had very positive experiences with 3 of my family members after they died. They visited me right after death in my dreams; all of it deeply healing.

      • Thanks for your comment but I differ. According to my understanding,there is no way of escape to visit the living from the other side of life that the Bible teaches as applicable in our time. The only possibility is for the living to visit the dead in visions.

    • Linda Bishop says:

      Wow, I had a very, very similar dream about my dad. I was walking up a staircase to an apartment, he was sitting in a recliner. In life my dad, my dads arms were covered in tattoos, he was happily showing me his clean, new arms. I then told him he was in my dream, to please don’t let me wake up to soon, I miss you. He proceeded to tell me that it was not up to him, and just like your dream, he said he just couldn’t visit me whenever he wanted, that it was up to THEM. He said he would visit from time to time but whenever THEY decide.We talked awhile about how things worked until I woke up. I felt in my heart that it was more than a dream, It seemed so real.

  16. Blessed says:

    I constantly have dreams about my dead brother, I think so much about him and I have tried to forget about his untimely death but I just can’t help it. His thought usually come at my bed hours. I have prayed and rebuked him in my dream but yet I still see him in my dream. I need ur prayer please.

  17. Donnie says:

    I highly doubt the devil would send my grandmother to tell me to focus on God and to live a holy life. And that my career and other aspects in life are important but that are nothing in compared to having a relationship with jesus. Also it was my grandmother but she waa not the same as the 95 year old i knew. She was full of life and energy and before she left she said I have to go back home now.

    • Thanks for sharing your dream. There is often a thin line between a dream and a vision. I would want to believe that your experience was more of a vision than a dream. Keep praying about that message you received and trust God’s confirmation to come your way.

  19. Zulu says:

    Hi , my father passed away 3 years ago and time and again I happen to dream of him , what surprises me is that through out the dreams he is always silent never says a word , I always wonder if his spirit has not found rest because he died mysteriously or can it be the spirit of death following me or a family member , I have an aunt who is not feeling well, she is really worried about her health and to some reason the months of march and April seen to scare her since my uncle and father died 20 March and 21 April respectively ,or could it be a generational curse these spirits are implementing or someone from the family is engaging in witchcraft as I am having bad dreams that a member of my family is visiting me at night . I am still a baby Christian I have just started reading about dreams and still yet to understand about God and the Bible

    • You really have to pray about this. Dreams that are of God will give you scriptures or support scriptures. The bible teaches us that the dead either go to Heaven or Hell. There is no room for idleness. No one goes and comes at will. I suggest you mention this in your prayer service and ask for God to break these bad dreams. God will help you. I will also pray for you.

  20. Bridgy says:

    I had a dream of myself,my mom and my late step dad (who was very dear to me),we were chatting happily with my late dad and I saw the sea surrounded at our north,west and east…please can you help me get the meaning?

    • Thanks for the comment. Honestly, I have no idea what your dream could mean but I know that in prayer, all your answers are found. Pray about it and expect an answer. Your answer could be that you forget about it and never have a similar dream again.

  21. L.G. Swift says:

    I believe what the bible says in the kjv and the devil wants to get us into other translations. We are living in the end times and every day brings more false prophets and many people are being deceived, but God is greater.

  22. KJS says:

    I lost my Nan & lately she’s been appearing in my dream. It’s almost like she’s still here but in the back of my mind I know she’s not. What prayers can help me rebuke this? They don’t seem natural at all.

    • If you have prayed on your own and the dream does not go away, ask someone or even your pastor to pray for you. Dreams can be stubborn sometimes because they can be a huge playground for the devil.

  23. Dione says:

    Hi I dreamt I was attending a funerals
    And the realize it was my pastor funeral it was a very big funeral people from all over what does this mean

    • I don’t think there is any meaning to it even though we can learn some things from this dream. One of the things to learn is that death is for everyone including pastors. If this dream is troubling you in your mind, take time and pray that it fades off and I believe it will.
      May I also mentions that I’m not a dream interpreter.

  24. Dk says:

    My father passed away 1998 he always come to my dream asking me anything which is bothering me and all the things that I ask him it happened like I was sick for a long time he came to my telling me that I will be healed and it happened also I was looking for a job he told me that I will get it and it happened what does it mean in the word of god

    • I’m not in a position to respond with Biblical verses on your question. However, the spirit of foretelling the future can be found in the devil’s kingdom. This is the spirit that fortune tellers and some traditional mediums use. It is not the spirit of God. There are some false prophets that use the same spirit and as such have deceived many. I recommend you listen to Abraham Yakubus testimony on ‘The reality of Heaven and hell’ to learn more about this spirit.
      I will pray for you on this too.

  25. Renee says:

    My mother passed on Dec.8,2017 of unknown causes. I also have had a very strange dream that she and I were driving down a dirt road in her car and as we were talking I began to ask her questions and she became very angry, it all appeared very strange and out of character for her. So I asked if she had lied to me about something and her appearance changed and she disappeared leaving me in the car by myself. I woke up and was very troubled because the last thing she said to me was did I know where she was at? She stated very angrily that she had to sit in a room for 20 years. I immediately reached for my bible and started to pray and found scripture you are speaking of. Thank you for your post. Bless All

  26. MPHO says:

    Greetings Man of God. I am a born again Christian. I have dreamt of several dead relatives I dream being with them at times doing things we used to do at my home where I grew up . Now I know better
    , Do we erect tombstone in memory of the dead but not talking or worship them ? . Do we remember their birthdays .?
    My daughter also dreamt of my dead mom telling her to pray using candles . She used to do that . Things are currently not working
    well at home and for her
    Please pray for my family .

    • I believe that putting a tompstone is a good thing is you can afford to do it. just as you say, it should not turn to a place of worship. God is a jealous God who commands that none be worshiped besides Him. I will pray for you.

  27. Therese says:

    My Father passed over 32 years. Since then I had seen him just once in my dreams. Recently I saw him standing in a bus stop and I was passing by in a bus. I tapped the window and shouted Daddy daddy but he didn’t hear me, he was zipping up his back pack. I got off at the next stop but missed him. I kept asking many as to why i saw him after so many years. At the moment we are in the darkest hour of our lives. Some say he came with a message or a warning. I just read your article and understand what I need to do. Thank you.

  28. Miranda Reid says:

    Thank you so much for your post! My mother passed away in July of this year. Even though it’s been months I just had a dream where I saw her and was crying and hugging her and telling my daughter to pinch me so I could know my mom was real. I told her God healed her and wanted to show her pictures of herself and how sick she was in the hospital. I did feel relieved because I got to tell her things but after a while she was ready to go. I knew I had to let her go. I ALWAYS ask God to rebuke the spirit of death after dreaming about loved ones who have passed on. My pastor’s wife told me to always send them back but I don’t remember to in the dream. I do pray afterwards.

    • I’m sorry to hear that. Your pastors wife is right, these spirits can be very deceiving and even give us some emotional comfort yet they are not of the Light. I will remember you in my prayer.

      • Sandra says:

        Man of God can you please keep me in your prayers? That God will give me discernment? God speaks to me in dreams & visions, but the enemy tries to confuse me. The other night I had a very disturbing dream that my ex fiancée committed suicide. The nightmare felt so real. I do not know if that horrible dream was from God or satan?

  29. James says:

    At times when I dream and see gathering in my home town someone is likely to die. Help me out with the word of God.

  30. James says:

    Man of God, help me in prayer. I have been seeing dead relatives in my dreams. I have been praying but it keeps occurring. The problem is that i always feel the person is no more but how to rebuke in the dream. Anytime I wake up from sleep I will pray. And at times when I dream and see gathering in my home town someone is likely to die. Help me out with the word of God.

  31. Marina says:

    Thank you for your post, it gives me a different outlook on what I am currently going through. I am a born again believer and in my family I am the one with vivid dreams. My dreams (or should I call them nightmares) are always scary and hard to forget. Interesting enough, anytime I call on to Jesus during my dreams they immediately stop. I recently had a dream that there was a dead body sleeping next to me, it was my great grandmother. I carried her corpse and laid her next to my living grandmother. I sat on the ledge of my bed and watched them. There was an evil presence behind me hidden in the shadows of the room. There was a voice telling me to turn around and acknowledge this “being”. I refused to do so, I was frightened. Suddenly the dream stopped. I will very often dream of death, and again this “being” always near me wanting to make itself known. In your opinion, why do I keep having such horrible dreams? Every night I pray for protection in my dreams and I will at times dream about it.

    • I will be praying with you on this too. It surely is a spiritual attack from the evil one. May God protect you and make this a thing of the past.

      Go on youtube.com and search Apostle Paul Williams. He talks about dream criminals and familiar spirits and witchcraft and lead you into prayer.
      Also in Youtube find Evangelist Fernandez for a 3 hour curse break video for prayers.
      Also get brother Carlos for a 4 or 6 hour house cleaning and casting out demons video.
      Apostle Paul gives great teaching on these issues.

      • Thank you for your referals. I appreciate.

          Hello, praise the Lord!
          I have for the 3rd time dreamt of a colleague of mine who have been deceased 3 years.
          I am an RN and so was she. Worked together for more than 20 years.
          In the dream she is always dressed in white, but never talks. The first 2 times I dreamt of her ,I embraced her as she embraced me. I was happy to see her. Later, I learned that the dream is of the devil, so the last time she came, I rebuked and ignored her and she walked away.
          I give all the glory to Almighty God for giving me the power to rebuke the powers of darkness in my sleep state. I will keep on praying for spiritual strength and readiness. I would like it to stop.

      Seems like their could be something in your life or your home so I would ask God to reveal what it could be that has opened a door that these spirits keep tormenting you and when you repent and destroy whatever it is they can’t torment you any longer. Just keep speaking the name of Jesus they can’t stay where the blood of Jesus is

    Hi, thanks for your post.
    I tend to both believe what you say is true but on the other hand I disagree on some level.
    My father past away a few months ago and I had a dream I was walking with him in a very bright place. He was speaking to me but I heard nothing in terms of words, only his vivid voice and while he held my hand I could feel his skin and smell his scent. It was a very vivid dream apart from not remembering his words, just that he was happy and at peace and had come to comfort me. A month later my sister called in tears and told me a dream she had of our dad after praying to God for a sign the night before. She was, like me, holding his hand and walking and my dad guided her into a store and over to a shelf. The store was a holiday shop selling trinkets. My dad picked up a nativity set and smiled at my sister while pointing to baby Jesus. Then she woke up.

    What is your take on these dreams?

    • I’m happy that you are open to my opinion on this. I do appreciate that God will take some of the living in visions and dreams into the after life. This has happened many times and the book of Revelation is a record of a vision shown to John. You surely know what you saw and how vivid it was in your sight and your sister’s dream. It is good news to us that when we pray God will reveal to us the truth about things that confuse us. My personal take on this is that if it encourages you to trust more in God and practice what He wants, the dream is good for you.
      Next time you have a similar dream, I encourage you to call and use the name of Jesus right in your ‘VIVID’ dream. The name of Jesus is the only way to test spirits.

      thank you for your comment.

    My cousin had died 24 Sunday 2017 of September and I recognized things in my house was moving and I had a dream of my cousin talking to me in a dream saying “ I’m fine I’m home “ the dreams stopped but the sounds and moving stuff is making me stress and depressed

    • That’s sounds scary. I believe it is time for you to get closer to God in prayer over this. The devil wants to win you by making physical moves yet he is a liar. Getting closer to God against the spirit of the dead will save you your life in this world and the one to come. I will pray for you as well.

    When I was young I had a dream about my sister who passed due to a car accident,She told as long as I dream my dreams would come true, still to this day I’m not really understanding,is this gods way of telling me she’s okay or is it something else

    • I appreciate your worry. My take is that your dream had nothing to do with God’s message, it was just a dream. To overcome this worry, you just have to pray to God about this and He will help you overcome this though arising from this dream. If your sister was a Christian that was in good terms with the Lord Jesus when she died, she is in a good place and that has got nothing much to do with you. What matters is your relationship with God and how you want to live for Him.

      I encourage you to make a prayerful effort to go over this dream, it is possible.

    My question is my younger sister died unexplainable death in Africa in January,1,2017. No body believed her death was natural and we have been praying with believers and different people have been praying and ask God how did she died, every one in different time, different country God showed then she died because of some evil issues and sacrifices. We as family we have been praying so much for her to come back because we believe she is somewhere, and we have been dreaming more than 100 times she is back and she is telling us she is not dead, and a lot Man of God. We need your help and advice, me as me I have been asking God to speak to me direct the truth if she died natural death or not. Because their were a lot of wearied things going on where she was married. They refused to allow us to do post mortem, the funeral day we as sisters we wanted to prepare the body and dress up for funeral services they workup at 5 am and prepare everything without our presence, we were shocked as family member. Man of God please help me because we still dreaming about her everyone in different time and always she cried for help, what do we need to do. Some they dream that she is coming with sweet cases, she looks tired and we are praying and fasting so that God can reveal this.

    • I’m very sorry to hear that. You are doing good by praying to God for answers to your questions. However, I believe getting answers on how she died wont benefit you much. How about praying to God for help to get over the thoughts and the emotional hurt from this sad loss. God has the strength even to help you overcome the pain, even though memories may not fade off, but you can be in control of the situation.

      I will pray for you too.

    I had a dream last night about my grandmother who passed away at 98 years old in 2016. She looked purple, had black eyes and looked like she was really miserable. She turned her head towards me with black eyes. That really gave me the chills. I couldn’t go back to sleep after that. She was Catholic, so my first though was that was her in hell. It is still giving me the creeps.

    • Thanks for sharing. I will give you my honest understanding.

      This is a dream that came just to disturb you and all the bad comes from the evil one. The living have no fellowship with the dead. That kind of connection is not of God and it should be cut off through prayer. God has the power to free you from the thought and stop dreams of such kind from reoccurring. You need to focus on having a good relationship with God through Jesus Christ so that your own soul does not go to hell.

      I will pray for you too for the blood of Jesus to cover you.

      thank you.

    Thanks for the revelation behind the article. My father passed on in July 2017 i dream of him being alive and i was happy to see him. By God’s grace he was a born again before he dies.

    What is the real meaning and does the dream comes from me, the devil or warning from God to let him rest.
    Thank you

    • Thanks for sharing and I will give you my honest understanding of what this dream is all about. In your subconscious mind, your father may still be flashing and the long time you have spent with him in this world is the cause for this. However, the living has no fellowship with the dead. This is an occurrence the the devil might want to use to his advantage in the long run. You just have to pray to God and declare that you had this dream and you were happy to meet your father in the dream but this should never happen because your father has passed. there is nothing far from the truth, this is not good for you.

      I pray for you too for this dream never to come back because it is useless dreaming of a person than has passed on.

  39. Anne Nalwanga says:

    i appreciated the article.it is an eye opener.i do get dreams of the dead especially when am persuing something.and when i get this kind of dream, i get negative results in what am persuing. should i be worried about this?

    I know now that the devil uses our dead to play on our minds and drive us crazy and uncertin in our faith.

    • Thanks for your comment. The right thing to do is pray against the spirit of negative results now that you know the devil will make every effort to fail you. In strict terms, worry is not from God. Pray against it at all times you face it.

    Thank you so much man of God for this. please pray for me as i have been dreaming of 3 relatives who has passed on i have been dreaming of coffins, i am so worried i have been praying but i know the blood of Jesus still works and i shall never dream of this again.

    I had a dream last night about 3 relatives and mom and dad i woke up crying but the father told me get on my knees and pray i did but i dont feel much better this dream worries me

    • I’m sorry to hear that. However, know that Jesus Christ has been given all power on earth and in Heaven (Matthew 28:18), which you should call out for in prayer to remove the fear. Pray and believe Jesus to have done the work. Pray, and pray and pray and the situation will not be the same.
