*HOW THE SPIRIT OF FEAR GAIN ENTRANCE INTO PEOPLE*
If you don’t have the right knowledge, you will definitely be fed with the wrong knowledge. If you don’t know the truth, then, it is certain that you live in lies. Lack of knowledge of the word of God is responsible for the fear people live in.
1. When we stay away from the word of God, we would be very close to the lies of the devil. If you are not feeding yourself with the word of God, then, the devil will feed you with words of fear – Rom. 10:17. Fear only thrives where truth is hidden. Get yourself rooted in the truth through God’s word and fear will disappear from your life.
2. Lack of knowledge: Always seek right knowledge about spiritual problems. Don’t allow devil to pollute your mind with lies. There are many things that caused demonic fear in people that are base on ignorance. I will highlight some of this myth and I will talk about them one after the other
Firstly: Every dream is not from God. Dreams can come from three sources namely; God (Job 33:14-18, 1Kings 3:5,15), Devil (Job 7:14) and Environment (Eccl.5:3). You see, don’t allow the devil to terrify and create fear in you through a dream. He terrified Job in the dream. When your dream put you in bondage beware of it. If God wants to communicate with his children through a dream, he won’t do it in a way that will cause us to lose our sanity. God is a loving father. Even if he shows you that something terrifying is about to happen to you, he can only press it on your mind to pray hard not to cause torment and restlessness in you. Don’t believe every dream because some are as a result of what you hear, did or watch during the day.
There are dreams that are based on the environment. Have you noticed that sometimes you see in your dream what you were busy doing during the day? That is a dream from environment.
Secondly: NOT ALL EATING IN THE DREAM IS DEMONIC. If you are hungry before you sleep, you can eat in your dream – Isaiah -29:8
If you see the residue of that food in your mouth or your stomach becomes full when you wake up, then, it is indeed demonic. But If a man eats in his dream and still wakes up hungry, it means he really didn’t eat anything. Most times, it’s just the imagination of your spirit. Satan thrives on the fear and ignorance of people.
If you had a dream for example, and then you’re uncertain about the meaning, Satan could launch an attack against your mind by suggesting negative interpretations to that dream. Fear might then creep in, which ultimately could pave way for demons to have a field day. So the problem isn’t with the dream; it has a lot more to do with accepting the negative interpretation of the dream brought to you by Satan.
So you ought to be smart to always subject your dreams to the Word of God. Don’t accept the lie from satan that eating in your dream is always demonic.
Beloveth, throughout the Bible, there’s no place Satan gave people food to eat in a dream; only God fed people in their dream, example is Peter (Acts 10:9-15). Therefore, If you found yourself eating in your dream, don’t be afraid. Wake up and begin to prophesy positively and refuse to allow fear but if you see the leftover in your mouth, it is indeed demonic.
Thirdly: NOT ALL SEXUAL INTERCOURSE IN THE DREAM IS CAUSED BY DEMONS: if you don’t renew your mind or you live your life feeding on immorality materials, you will naturally experience wet dreams. When people have wet dreams, they assume it is demonic always and allow the spirit of fear into their lives thinking they have spirit husband. No matter the spirit husband, if your mind is renewed appropriately with God’s word consistently, you will not have any intercourse in the dream. Well-proven.
