I had this dream about a week and half after i moved into my new flat. I was sitting on my couch and i had just put my daughter to bed i sat on my sofa and then the bookcases and my computer desk started to move toward me closing in around me as if to block me in. I thought straight away that this was a spiritual attack so i tried to rebuke the spirits in the name of jesus as the furniture closed in around me but it wasn't having any effect and the furniture kept closing in.
I woke up just before they got too close becos it scared me that i could not rebuke them in the name of the lord. This disturbed me and it took me a while to get back to sleep again and i remember that just as i woke up i could here someone moving upstairs. You can usually tell if someone is wandering around as they have a wooden floor so when they move through the room you can here the wood creek taking the weight of the person. I started praying in toungues and rebuking in the name of Jesus and singing and praising God as i know that the devil flees before us when we stand firm in our faith in the power of the Lord's name.
I've initially thought that maybe the bookcases and stuff represent the clutter in my life and therefore represent my cluttered mind and because i'm more worried about day to day life than i should be and not focusing as much on god the power of god is restricted and is not having its desired change it needs for me to grow spiritually. Which is why i couldn't rebuke the spiritual attack against me. This also highlights the fact that I might not have enough faith to believe and trust in the power of the Lord's name.
Other views would be much appreciated on this, Thanks
I must ask you a question, "Are you sure the enemy (satan/evil) was using
the bookcases/computer desk in the dream, or was it a angel in the dream" ?
Do you know the difference between dreams of the enemy and dreams of
angelic intervention ?
Most people who saw angels in the Bible, fell to the ground on their faces.
That is why I asked the question.
(quote) I woke up just before they got too close becos it scared me that i could not rebuke them in the name of the lord.
- - - If they (angels) were from the Lord, you cannot call them out, if it is
of the Lord, you would not be able to rebuke the Lord's angels.
Had you thought of this perspective ?
And the items being closing in around you, surrounding you, encompassing
you, as you have figured out, are the most important message of the dream
So, what do the bookcases and computer desk, have to do with your fear ?
Are you avoiding going back to college, or technical school, requiring studies
and computer home desk time, in between class exercises for grade requirements ?
Bookcases, hold books.
Should you be reading new books, not contained in your bookcases, that would
build confidence in your standing with the Lord ?
Are your books, in the bookcases through with serving their purpose of education,
religion, family, etc ? Some new book material needed, maybe ?
How would your computer desk be a negative in your everyday routine ?
Ok, those are some of my thoughts about the dream.
Fear does not come from the Lord.
