“Pastor, for the last 3 days I’ve been dreaming that my cars and properties were stolen. What do I do?”
According to scriptures, dreams are dark speeches which rarely have literal interpretations. For instance, if you dreamt that you were attacked and your money was taken from you, it may not necessarily mean that thieves would attack and steal your money, it may just mean that your carelessness about your health may bring a sickness that will take money from you. So while you are busy praying against attacks from thieves, you may need to pay attention to your health.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it cannot be a warning about a robbery by thieves, I’m just saying that you can’t always interpret dreams in their literal form. For all we know, it can also be that you’ve employed someone who would cause you a great loss financially. Each time you have a disturbing dream, don’t conclude on the meaning so quickly. Rather, think holistically.
Now back to your dream, cars and properties are not things that can easily be stolen these days, and that’s because certain documentation needs to be done to transfer ownership. This tells me that your case isn’t a day light robbery, it’s a robbery by trust. It’s either someone who’s in possession of your documents wants to overthrow you or someone you’ve trusted with your treasurable ideas is planning to outsmart you. It could also be that you’re about to make a mistake or an investment that would bring a great loss. And the fact that the dream has continued to reoccur reveals that you have to do something urgently.
Speaking of doing something. The first thing to do to secure victory over unpleasant dreams is to win the battle in the spirit first. So just because I said someone you trust may be attempting to overthrow you doesn’t mean you should start looking for a snake. No! That’s not how to start. If you start like that, you’d still lose.
The weapons of our warfare are not canal, they are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. So start by declaring your faith in God’s word concerning your victory. Please note that I didn’t say you should start by praying to God, rather start by declaring your faith in God’s word. You don’t pray to God when you’re under attack, you counter the attack by the weapons that are already loaded inside you.
I’ve had dreams of attacks on many occasions, and pending the time I’m able to make sense of it, I ensure I deal with the situation in the spirit. Before you look for the interpretation of a dream, secure victory in the spirit first. This is so important!
Let me give you some scriptures I use to secure victory each time I have a bad dream:
1 Corinthians 6:
16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
That’s right! You’re joined unto the Lord, and that means you’re now one spirit with God. A spirit cannot be robbed. You’re a spirit being! Let that register in your heart by faith.
What happens to mortal men cannot happen to spirit men. The moment you were joined to the Lord, you became an elevated version of a man. The bible says, “… As Jesus is, so are we in this world”. Jesus went to heaven with an elevated body, not his mortal body. With that body, He could literally travel from Nigeria to the United States with a single footstep. That body was completely immune to tragedy and all evils.
1 Corinthians 15:39-40 tells us clearly that all flesh are not the same. Specifically it says, “All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another”. Did you see that? There are celestial bodies, bodies that cannot be affected by the evil in this world. Hallelujah!
7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
That’s right! The Lord shall preserve you from anything that looks like evil. He’d preserve your going out and coming in, not just for today, even for evermore.
6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
Even the devil recognizes that God will give His angels charge over you so you don’t experience loss or an attack.
Ofcourse there are many more scriptures, and the more I declare my faith in them, the more victory is established. Believe me, if I’ve ever had a bad dream that came to pass, it’s the one I didn’t deal with spiritually.
I hope this has brought enlightenment to someone.
Remain ever blessed, in Jesus precious name!
