How Do I Stop These Nightmares?


I have been practicing self deliverance for over six months with much success, however, recently I have been having terrible nightmares which seem to be out of the ordinary. After practicing the deliverance prayers of other web sites, I found a little relief, but it wasn’t until I tried your three prayers that I had miraculous results.

In these dreams I am in a very lucid state, there is usually a group of several people inside a geometric shape which seem to be pulling me towards them, but never quite getting there. Then, a horrible being, which is indescribable in nature attempts to have sexual intercourse with me. Often its true appearance is hidden by that of a woman, but when I call on Jesus, it backs off and an awful thing which I can only describe as a gapping wound of blackness and lack of compassion is revealed in her place. After waking in a panic, I feel drained for hours finding it very difficult to move and very depressed combined with a terrible headache. I truly feel that I may be a target of some of the wiccans at my previous employment.

Can you make suggestions which might be helpful?

Many Thanks


There are a few things that come to mind when I read your e-mail. In brief, let me try and explain.

First off, we know that fear comes from the devil and his demon legions..

2 Tim 1:7
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (KJV)

If God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear, then who has? The obvious answer is that it is a weapon of the demons. The Lord has given us power, love and sound mind. Notice also that 2 Timothy 1:7 states that fear is a spirit. It is very clear that it is a spirit, and since it doesn’t come from God in the form of an Angelic ministering spirit, then by default, that makes it a demonic spirit, a fallen angel, and part of the host of Satan.

When demons attack us in our dreams, believe it or not, it is because they are cowards and small. The reason for this, is that if they were more powerful demons, they would attack us in our thoughts during the day and risk retaliation by us who would in turn use God’s word to fight them. But knowing that when we are awake, we will fight back, these cowardly demons who are afraid of retaliation, will attack us in our sleep. This only goes to show that they are not as big as they make themselves out to be.

So some of the thoughts that cross my mind are this:

Demons do not, and cannot torment Christians without legal rights. For instance, in Matthew 18, we read about the servant that owed a lot of money to his lord. When he begged for mercy, the lord forgave him his debt. But when the servant was brought into the same situation where someone owed him money, he did not in turn show mercy as he had been shown mercy. The result
of which is stated in Matthew 18:32-35:

Matt 18:32-35
32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me:
33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.
35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses. (KJV)

Notice that in verse 35, “So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not…” What is “likewise” done? In verse 34, it answers this question with “And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.” Who are our spiritual tormentors? The demons, of course.

When we don’t forgive others, after having seen how much the Lord has forgiven us, the Lord is insulted and because of this ingratitude he allows the demons to torment us in this area. Win used to say it this way, “The Lord uses the demons as a monkey wrench to tighten up loose nuts.” This in turn, drives us back to the Lord where we again ask for his forgiveness for being so selfish and uncompassionate towards others and through this confession, we can then force the tormentors, or demons to leave.

But notice also, demons have to have legal rights…in this case, unforgiveness towards others. Unforgiveness is an open door to the demons in order for them to play the game of “Pile On” and the end result of us is misery and destruction until our stubborn will is broken.

Just like unforgiveness, there are other doors which give the demons legal rights to torment Christians. Again, the Lord allows this in order to teach us NOT to do these things. So the first thing to check for, is to ask the Lord to show you any open doors that the demons might enter through.

A small list of open doors would include: unforgiveness, involvement in the occult (such as oui-ja boards, horoscopes, sceances, eastern religions, reincarnation, transcedental meditation, yoga, karate, hypnosis, New Age, drugs, etc), cursed objects in your house (Buddha dolls, rabbit’s feet, new age crystals, statues or sculptures of pagan gods from Mexico, India, China, etc., Rock and Roll albums, books on the occult like Scientology, Psychic practices, ESP, Kharma, etc), as well as any habitual sins you might currently be in such as pornography, adultery, lying, stealing, etc., etc.

All these things are forbidden and most of them are cursed by God in the Bible. By participating in these things, these curses open doors to the demons.

When you mentioned the Geometric figure in your dream, you might have relatives or ancestors who were part of the demonic cult called Freemasonry, or the Masonic Lodge. Doctrines of cults and false religions were created by demons:

1 Tim 4:1-2
1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; (KJV)

Heb 13:9
9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein. (KJV)

By coming into agreement with false religions, we come into agreement with demons, and an agreement with them is an open door.

So before you begin accusing the people you once worked with as being wiccan, do an inventory on your past, your ancestor’s past, and make sure that you’ve closed any doors in your life. When you have, remember this verse:

Prov 26:2
2 As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come. (KJV)

A curse causeless shall not come. When we, here at the church, get hit by curses from witches, the very first thing we do is look for the open door. Just like demons, curses cannot come upon us, unless there is a cause for it to come. I’ve read accounts of Satan worshippers who were frustrated in their attempts to curse Christians, because their curses came to no avail (Lucifer Dethroned, William and Sharon Schoebelen). Why? Because there was no cause, no open door that gave legal right for that curse to come upon them.

Remember, the devil can’t do anything he wants. He first must get permission from God. If the devil could do anything he wanted, we’d all have our throats slit in the middle of the night. We are God’s property, and the devil must get permission. Remember, we are in the Father’s hand an no one can pluck us out, not even Satan.

But the Lord allows these things to come upon us in this lifetime to correct us from doing things which are contrary to his Word.

There’s a good booklet, I think it’s only $2 or $3 called “Principles of Deliverance and Mass Deliverance.” In it, there is a series of renunciation prayers that will close the door to a lot of areas of your life. Also, you might be interested in the audio tape called “Sins of the Fathers” by Pastor Win Worley that shows, biblically, how the sins of our ancestors actually produce open doors for demons to attack us through generational curses. Once these curse are broken, the demons can be forced to leave. Also, there is a tape entitled, “Bind and Loosing Spirits” by Win Worley that would also be benificial to you. These are online at www.wrwpublications.com.
This should get you started. Let me know of your progress, and I’ll help out in any way I can. If you’re anywhere near the church, you might consider stopping by and getting some deliverance with the help of others. The bigger demons usually don’t come out without the help of the Body of Christ working together with two or three gathered in His name, and with fasting…

Talk to you soon,
