Biblical Meaning of Being Attacked In a Dream

Subscribe to our Youtube channel about Angel Numbers:

Being attack in real life is a terrifying experience and something that no one needs to experience. There can be many attacks verbal, mental, and physical too.

Every one of them is terrible, and you should never be an attacker. God didn’t want us to fight, only to defend what is ours; our faith, our religion, and our families.

And what about dreams with attacks, or to be more precise, dreams where you are being attacked? Are they a good sign, or a bad one, according to the Bible?

We can tell you that an attack doesn’t have to mean something negative when it happens in a dream. It can be just a reflection of your life, troubles, and thoughts or a way God is communicating with you. Often, they also can be a sign of a lack of faith in God or yourself.

Something significant to do if you keep having dreams like this is to write them down. Try writing everything that happens down. You need to write it because if you don’t you will forget about it, and after just a couple of hours you won’t be able to remember the slight details that are always essential.

But, if you write it down, you can come to God, and in prayer, tell him all about your dreams. For example, if you know, write down who attacked you, where it was, how it happened, how you felt, was is another human or a demon. Even the details that you think are not vital, write them also down.

That way, you will be able to solve the mystery behind your dreams quickly and easily succeeded every barrier put in front of you.

To be attacked sometimes means that you are also being attacked in real life. It doesn’t have to be an actual physical attack, but verbal and mental attacks can be repainted in your dreams as physical attacks.

If that’s the case, you need to start resolving your real-life problems if you desire to have normal dreams again. You shouldn’t fear because you have God on your side.

You could be having dreams like this because you are frightened about being attacked in real life. If that’s true, you need to see why you are afraid. And if there is a good treat, you need to tell someone about it, or even call the police.

An attack in a dream can also be a sign of an attack that is about to happen, and it’s going to involve your relationship, marriage, job, and similar things.

We will try and decipher what kind of attacks are possible to dream and what Biblical meaning they have. With that in mind, we believe that you will be able to overcome every obstacle and fear and come closer to Him.

There are a few questions that we need to ask you?

  • Do you feel threatened by somebody in real life?
  • Has someone attacked you recently?
  • Did you attack anyone?
  • Do you have an urge to attack someone?

If the answer to any one of these questions is yes, then perhaps you have these dreams as a response to a real-life event or a crisis. And because of that, you don’t have to try and find answers in the Bible.

But what you can do is read the holy book and connect with Him, and if you are having some difficulties, He will help you overcome them.


But, if the answer is no, you can proceed reading this article, and we will help you acknowledge what you need to acknowledge.

You are losing control

It can be that everything looks like a peaceful dream, and all of a sudden, someone is attacking you physically, and you don’t know what to do.

It can be that you are losing control over your life, you’ve drifted from the right path, and now you don’t know what to do.

It can be that while reading this, you think that this doesn’t concern you because you are in control of your life. And partly you can be right, but there is the other side too.

Right now, you are in control, but deep down in your soul, you are afraid of losing it all. And God is aware of this, so he is trying to communicate and let you know that you don’t need to be afraid. Everything is going to okay, and you will not lose it all.

Fear of what you would do if you lose control can also be present, and because of that, you have dreams in which you are being violated and attacked.

You need to resolve your hidden conflicts

Have you ever paused to consider, for a second, any unresolved conflicts that you might have? Maybe there are some that you have been dragging ever since high school? Unresolved conflicts are a burden that weighs on your soul and can eventually handicap you from leading an everyday life.

Something like this is not naïve because unresolved conflict is sneaky, and it oppresses you silently until you can’t stand it anymore.

Being attacked in a dream can indicate that you carry with you some unresolved dispute and that you need to resolve it urgently. You should look at this dream as positively as possible because it will push you to start sorting out your problems.

You lack faith

In most cases, when an attack happens in a dream, it is you attack yourself. It is not the work of Satan or a demon; it is you. And why, you may ask?

But the solution is directly in front of you, and it’s straightforward. You are attacking yourself because you know that your faith was not on the right level in the past period. You’ve strayed from the right path, and now you are lost and wandering all around.

Luckily for you, God loves all of his children, and he has space for you once you regain your faith. You need to go back to the path of righteousness, and once you do that, the attack will stop. And to do it, you need to find Him in your heart and start believing again.

You are being judged

Often people dream about being attacked by objects, not just by humans. And if you can’t manage to see who the attacker is, but you can see what is attacking you, it can decipher the meaning. In most cases, you have dreams about some situations that had happened in your life, when other people judged you, and now you have traumas of that.

For example, suppose you are being attacked with a tank or a heavy-duty military vehicle.

In that case, it can be that you are reminiscing about a stressful situation once your boss or someone of authority was judging you and saying that you are not good enough.

If a sword is attacking you, it can be that you have traumas from yourself. Yes, you were too hard on yourself, and your critical voice was so sharp that now you have wounds from it. You are probably still doing that, and you are deepening the wounds every day, little by little.

You need to overgrow the criticism that other people have put upon you and to know that it is only significant what God thinks of you. And He wants you to be humble.

An excellent way to move on from all of this is to talk to God and pray. Prayer is something that can bring you peace, calmness, and closure. If you haven’t done it in a while, you should do it now.

It would also help if you stop criticizing yourself, you are only human, after all, and you cannot, and you are not expected to perform miracles.

You need to check your health

It can be possible that God is trying to send you a message through your dream, but you could not decipher it. And the message is that you should check upon your health. Maybe the attacks signify attacks not on you physically and instead on your immune system and your organs. It can be that you need to go and get checked at a doctor’s office. This is the first and most important thing to do.

The second one is a change of lifestyle. If your immune system is weakened, it needs to get stronger, and it will if you set a healthy lifestyle. If you have any vices, this is God’s way of admonishing you to stop it. You need to stop smoking, drinking, or anything else that you are doing.

Focus on your wellbeing, spirituality, and a healthy and moderate diet. It is time to let the tension go out from your body and for peace to enter.

A demon is attacking you

In worse cases, it can be that a demon is attacking you in your dreams. You can have your demons, or as the Bible says, you’ve inherited the sins of your fathers, family.

In the Bible, we have an opportunity to learn that every demon stays close to you, and he waits for you to fail, even a little bit. He monitors you, analyzes your steps, and tempts you, little by little.

Different types of demons can attack and affect you in different ways, and we are going to talk about three types of demons.

And before we start explaining this to you, the most important thing you should know is that you can’t fight demons without believing in God. If you don’t want to be manipulated by a demon, or more of them, you need to keep your faith high and open your eyes wide. And if you trust in Him, you will be successful in your fight.

There are emotional demons, and if they attack you in your dreams, you need to know that it’s not a good sign. It’s a bad omen when an emotional demon visits you, mostly when it attacks you.

Those kinds of demons are fed with your hatred and your anger. The more you are angry, and the more you hate, the more powerful they are. Everything that you are trying to suppress will lead to these demons.

The way to fight them is to shift your thought towards love and calmness and forget about anger and hatred. It would be best if you never produced those emotions ever again, and the demons won’t attack you anymore. The way to come on the road of love is to believe in Him.

Some demons attack, and test your faith, and try to suck your spirituality. You need to strengthen your connection with God, renew your faith, and these demons will not hurt you.

Believe it or not, some demons will help you in your dreams. They will look horrible, and you will feel horrible, but you will have an opportunity to conquer them. And once you do that, once you vanquish them, you will superior and one step ahead in your life, again.

Now you can see why they help. And basically, they don’t help you in your dreams; they help you in your waking life. Because now, after the victory, you feel so much better, and you probably stopped feeling insecure.

Positive aspects of being attacked in dreams

Like we mentioned before, sometimes it’s good to be attacked in a dream. You have a chance to beat your demons, to be victorious, and to overcome a problem you’ve been having.

God has given you a chance to learn how to combat challenging situations. If you use the situation right, you can gain wisdom from this experience and wake life.

Negative aspects of being attacked in dreams

In most cases, many negative aspects are surrounding dreams in which you’ve been attacked.

It could be that you are so frustrated, full of hate, anger, and negative energy, that now the only thing your mind can produce is violence.

It can also be a warning directly from God that someone will attack you soon. He is giving you an upper hand, and you need to use it wisely. Some attacks in dreams can also signify satanic conflict.

We hope that you’ve learned that being attacked in a dream can be terrifying but also a very educational experience. Whatever happens in your dream, you can have sourced a lesson from it.

The attacks are often the projections of your fears and insecurities, but they can also be temptations from the devil.

Whatever the reason is, if you keep your faith and listen to God, everything will be okay eventually.
