It’s time for another personal testimony by a reader who submitted a dream for interpretation. Last time I posted one of these was a year ago when a friend from Kenya sent several dreams to me. This newest testimony comes from a woman who lives in the US, but is originally from Zimbabwe.
Many of the dreams I received from this new friend dealt with her life calling and some even look like scenes from an action movie. I was rather impressed by these!
Included here is the first dream she sent me along with a short version of my interpretation and then her personal testimony after learning what these meant. While reading this, not only will you see a great example of how dreams give clues to our life calling but you might also pick up a few lessons on spiritual warfare.
Life Calling Dreams
In my recent article on life calling dreams, I gave some clues to how you can determine what God is calling you to by looking at your dreams. One of the most important reasons to study your dreams is to discover how God has uniquely designed you and the plans He has for you (Jeremiah 29:11 ESV).
Most people stumble through life having no idea what their highest purpose is. Only God knows this and only He can reveal that to you through a variety of ways. Dreams are one of the top ways He will do this. Understanding what He is showing you through these highly symbolic nighttime images will go a long way toward helping you achieve more than you could ever ask or imagine.
As you will see below, my new friend Muneyi was quite surprised to find out the meaning of her dreams and to begin the process of learning more about her life calling. In this dream, there is a picture perfect Biblical example of how to correctly engage in spiritual warfare by going after the “strongman” and how knowing our identity is critical to our success in this realm.
If you’ve ever wanted to see what your own dreams of spiritual warfare should look like, you need to see this.
Testimony from Muneyi
“I found Chris through Facebook which led me to his Blog. When I found out that he can interpret dreams for free, I was skeptical. All the other people charge a fee for the interpretations. So I gave it a try thinking, what do I have to lose. I sent him one of my dreams.
I was swept away by his interpretation of the dream. Just by the dream he was able to decode the spiritual attacks that I had been through. In realizing how accurate he was I began to send him a bunch of my dreams and was amazed at how he was able to even match some of my dreams together.
Every single dream I sent him, he accurately decoded them in a way it made sense to me based on the circumstances surrounding me. Finding this blog was like finding a gold mine and wanting to share the news with the whole village! That’s why I am writing this, because I need others to find meaning to their dreams!!! Chris will help you figure out what your dreams are telling you.
He explains them in a way anyone can understand! He has helped me to put the little puzzles together and now I am beginning to see the bigger picture my dreams had been trying to communicate with me! Thank you Chris!!!!”
Dream Submitted by Muneyi
“I dreamt that I was being attacked by a guy with sword. I wasn’t intimidated neither was I afraid. I had my own powerful sword. The guy would throw little swords at me and I would use mine to destroy his. He threw all kinds of stuff at me that looked like weapons and I conquered. Then he went and got a mob of guys and they were all throwing different sharp objects at me. None of their weapons touched me since my sword was strong and I knew how to use it. They ran out of their weapons. Then they all came together and started charging towards me in order to intimidate me but were surprised to find out how I wasn’t intimidated, instead as they were charging towards me I started charging towards them. They all took off running. I got hold of the group leader. Placed my hands where it hurts and squeezed. He told the other guys to leave me alone. I then took hostage of the leader and made him my slave. I also found out that the leader was in transition to become a woman. He had breasts and also had male and female parts. So weird.”
Being attacked with swords (or other similar weapons) are usually symbolic of people attacking you with words although it can also be more than that in the spiritual realm. Here is where this comes from:
Proverbs 12:18 – There is one who speaks like the piercings of a sword, But the tongue of the wise promotes health.
The many people you saw can either be a direct reference to many people speaking against you or it can mean some type of large-scale spiritual attack directed against you. The good thing here is that you are not running away from them and you are not intimidated by them either.
Your own sword is your knowledge of God’s word and I believe this reveals that you are both knowledgeable and successful in applying it to your life especially in the context of spiritual attacks.
Ephesians 6:17 – And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;
What I found interesting was how you got ahold of the leader. This begins to suggest a hierarchy of demons is at work. Standard teaching on deliverance and spiritual warfare (as we see from Jesus) is that you must go after the highest ranking spirit first and then the others will leave.
Mark 3:27 – No one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house.
This is also what we see when Jesus cast out the legion of demons from the man at Gadera (Mark 5).
What we see next is something that appears to be a functional description of this demon when you saw it changing gender. This means there may be some type of spirit at work in the form of a transgender demon.
This dream suggests you are probably very skilled in spiritual warfare. If you don’t feel like you are as skilled as this dream suggests, then it is God’s way of revealing to you this truth about the demonic kingdom and how to properly destroy their works. Your dream is a picture perfect illustration of this verse here:
Ephesians 6:12 – For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
I believe this dream is God’s way of teaching and validating what we see in the Bible about going after the “strongman” – the highest ranking demon. This applies to casting demons out of a person but it also applies to dethroning a principality over a region.
Here are a few observations I made, if you didn’t catch it already:
- This dream is a validation of Biblical principles of deliverance and spiritual warfare.
- Muneyi has learned to be effective in spiritual war and this is primarily due to her understanding of her identity as a Christian.
- The fact that Muneyi was able to take on not just one attack, but many indicates a level of maturity that is uncommon. God rarely lets people like this sit on the sidelines without promoting them to higher levels of influence, especially in His kingdom.
- These three key points above are very solid clues to her life calling and point to God’s plans to use her in prominent places of influence and leadership.
- Write down your dreams and look for repeated themes.
- Do word searches in my blog and use the articles as a resource to interpret your own dreams.
