DELIVERANCE from NIGHTMARES
Part #1 evil Nightmares
Part #2 good Night Visions
Nightmares may be the subconscious
mind working overtime during one's sleep trying to fix
Nightmares may be the emotional turmoil continuing on in the subconscious mind during sleep.
Nightmares may be demonic interference, especially at night when our defenses are down.
Nightmares may be demons masquerading as humans who rape us when we are asleep/defenseless.
Nightmares may be demons masquerading as invading alien abductors trying to use our bodies as hosts. http://www.alienresistance.org/ce4casefiles.htm
Nightmares may be another human spirit harassing our human spirit, especially at night when we are asleep, according to Watchman Nee and Dr. Rebecca Brown Yoder.
If you are having nightmares, keep a journal.
If you are a parent of a child having nightmares, be sure to interview (without being critical) your child & monitor/record his dreams. Teach your child how to resist/refuse
the nightmare. Stand in the gap in prayer for your child.
Nightmares Related to Demons
- "If your
client has been frequently tormented by violent or sexually oriented dreams,
methods cited in this article will usually kill them. But if you are uncertain
or just want to cover the ground, ask the Lord issue a cease and desist
If these tormenting dreams persist & you have tried a number of other ministry avenues & feel you have exhausted your efforts, you might want to try a technique called Convening The Court of Heaven from Psalm 82 created by Dr. Tom Hawkins, founder of Restoration in Christ Ministries, www.rcm-usa.org .
A teaching CD set is available from his ministry which covers this tool clearly.

The Devil's Worst Nightmare 1/28/2010
Dawna De Silva: "Spiritual Atmospheres" Nightmares - "Around the age of 40, she started having nightmares.
These night visions were so vivid & demonic that they forced her to cry out in her sleep...
During these encounters, demons weighed her down & tried to keep her from waking...
One day, she visited the nearby park for fresh air. While jogging, a strangerís dog broke loose from its leash & chased her...When the owners caught up to take hold of their dog, they were amazed. They had never seen their dog act like that before. Julie returned home & wondered if it were possible the neighborís dog had picked up her own, partnering with fear. If so, she realized she was actually handing over power to the enemy. She called a friend who encouraged her to take authority over her home & dream life...
Julie blasted worship music & recited Psalms all throughout the house. She anointed each doorway with oil & even went up to the attic to release peace. Following these acts, her fears shifted & the atmosphere over her mind & home changed. From that day on, the nightmares stopped...
Some people believe that ungodly atmospheres are the same thing as demonic spirits. While I do believe demonic atmospheres are presided over by the demonic realm, I do not believe the atmospheres themselves are actual demons. Atmospheres, for me, are the prevailing spiritual realities created by manís partnership with the entities residing in the spiritual realm. As the messages these spiritual beings emit - are agreed upon & partnered with, the resulting atmosphere expands. Therefore, I see atmospheres, both godly & ungodly, as cyclical partnerings between broadcasts from the spirit realm & manís participation with them. Just as Julieís partnership with fear gave it increasing power, demonic strongholds grow as communities digress from Godís Word & embrace lifestyles of sin. As more people partner with the messages that are announced, the demonic influence grows. This cycle continues until either repentance is made, truth is revealed, or God intervenes. The church is designed to operate as bringers of the Kingdom of God & to release hope, peace & prosperity into these communities where demons work to release the opposite...
When evil spirits gain a place of power over a region, they broadcast lies over the entire area, much like a radio station. We have the capacity to either 'tune in' to these channels or to switch them off. Part of our responsibility in tuning out the enemyís voice is for us to switch the channel we are listening to that is emitting a sinful broadcast. But doing so does not actually shut off its transmissions into the airwaves. We need to release Godís opposing (opposite) messages into the airwaves to actually stop these transmissions." @ https://www.destinyimage.com/blogs/news?page=4

Deliverance-and-Spiritual-Warfare-Manual-Eckhardt.pdf - [Dolls (and toys) can attract demons or be used by a spiritual enemy to harm innocent children. Those practicing dark magic/sorcery/witchcraft can place demons inside of objects, such as dolls.] "The word doll is derived from the Greek word eidolon which means idol. Ancient dolls...
served religious purposes & were often buried with the dead to provide them company. Evil spirits can operate through dolls causing nightmares, fear & insomnia in children. Even seemingly harmless teddy bears are suspect. Children often are attached to & form ungodly soul ties with dolls & other stuffed animals...The devil will speak to the mind of a child just as he speaks to the mind of an adult. Remember, he's not a fair fighter.
This is why it is important for us to train our children in the Word at an early age::
1.they will be able to resist the attacks of the devil &
2.guard their minds with the Word by understanding true discipline."
RYAN: (A relative) "locked me in & told me ghost stories & scary stories,
which really opened up the gateway to the supernatural on the dark side."

Nightmares Related to Soul Layers/Ties
Kerr, Kat -
New Brighton, PA 6/2013 - posted 2/8/2016 - Loosing &
Binding are Kingdom Keys to be USED. The human soul is a shadow/refection of
Holy Spirit in that both consist of multi-layers. Every sexual partner or
violent experience triggers an exchange of soul layers, or at least a negative
deposit between layers. This needs to be reversed via repentance &
loosing/returning of another's deposit/layer +
taking/calling back one's own given/taken soul piece,
resulting in one's soul
becoming whole again.
Finally, one needs to invite the Trinity to fill oneself up with healing/health/restoration/ blessings. This eliminates root causes of most nightmares, as nothing in common with the enemy remains. Should one think his prayers/declarations failed, when a nightmare attempts to return, in Jesus' name just resist the "symptoms," the attempt of the enemy to trick one & regain an old foothold.

Resist the Nightmare
Speak to it. Say,
No. In the name of Jesus, no.
Go. In the name of Jesus, go.
Come, Lord Jesus.
Come, Holy Spirit.
Come, Father God.
Come, angels of God to defend me.
I cover myself with the blanket of the blood of Jesus.
I am safe.
Thank you Lord.
Fighting our/my/your demons can be a figure
of speech, for we all struggle with temptations, the flesh, disease & aging.
Addictions are particularly bothersome. Addictions to bad habits, food,
chocolate, coffee, medications, illegal drugs, alcohol, porn (soft or hard),
sex, etc is a battle/war. In our mind & in our body there is a constant
preoccupation & struggle to not do/think something. To humans, these demons are real,
whether in our mind or in our body. To make matters worse, these demons
can be evil spirits. If and when they are, we need to call on Jesus Christ
to send His warrior angles
to come down and assist us. Satan wants us to fight in our own strength. God smiles when we quit & ask Him for help. Jacob wrestled with an angel of the Lord an entire night, but would not let His holy angel go until God blessed him. Many of us struggle, especially at night when our defenses are down due to medication and sleep. The enemy has the upper hand terrorizing us at night when we are in bed asleep. Therefore, read aloud the 91st Psalm before you go to sleep. If you awaken, yell aloud, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. Those words will terrorize your enemy. The tide will change & you will begin to win your war.
Another recourse is to go to bed with holy
religious music &
to turn on music when woken by nightmares.
Some recommendations are found
at Healing Music where you will see the testimony of
who was so sick that any noise, even music, hurt her, but God solved that
as heard on 10/16/2006 Sid Roth's radio broadcast.
If evil spirits are tormenting a person, the initial reaction may be negative, as demons do not want to be disturbed; they want the upper hand. We can tell any evil to be quiet, not to speak, to shut up, in the name of Jesus. Both Jesus & His followers did that, on numerous occasions.
Resist nightmares and bad dreams/thoughts by speaking. One can speak to the enemy or to God. One can speak in his/her mind or preferably out LOUD. The point is, when one is speaking, he is taking his attention away from listening. It is like trying to jump & scratch your head at the same time; it is hard to do 2 things at the same time. It is hard to listen to a nightmare & sing to God. So when nightmares come to bother you, Retaliate by praying out loud. Whisper, hum, sing or praise. Better still, dance, on your way to the bathroom & back. Laugh, even at yourself.

Hazlett, Bob - http://d3tnb2mam8l2qt.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/IS834Transcript_Hazlett.pdf (edited excerpt)
SID: When Bob was a young boy he did not have the power, the knowledge, the ability to recognize when a thought was from God, when a thought was from the devil, when a thought was perhaps from himself & the devil took advantage of it. You had suicidal thoughts as a child.
BOB: Along with these night terrors & visitations, I had these thoughts going through my mind: youíre worthless, kill yourself, sometimes audibly, sometimes literally something jumping on top of me. I would come to my parentsí room & ask them for prayer. But 1 night I went to my parentsí room. My father was praying for me, like he normally did, 'Help him to think good thoughts.' All of a sudden his voice changed. He said, ďI command these suicidal thoughts to be quieted & never come back.Ē When he did that something broke in me. I started to cry, because my father didnít know that (I had suicidal thoughts). I had never told anyone, but my Father in Heaven did. When you hear your Fatherís voice it quiets all the other voices around you. I believe thatís a key to learning the difference between where the thoughts come from, because Jesus said, ďYouíll hear My voice & wonít follow the voice of a stranger.Ē
BOB: I was doing a conference & the auditorium was empty in between sessions. I happened to be walking through, & heard this voice from a balcony. It seemed audible, but it was 1 of those outside of me same voices, ďYouíre worthless. You should kill yourself.Ē I stopped. I had this funny moment because I realized how ridiculous this thought was. I pointed to the balcony. If anyone saw me theyíd think I was crazy. I said, ďYouíre not my thought. I know where you came from & Iím not going to listen to that any more.Ē

Renner, Rick - http://www.renner.org/anger/never-go-to-bed-angry/ "When a person goes to bed sizzling over something that has inwardly angered him, the entire night becomes an opportunity for the devil to work inside his mind & emotions. As soon as the personís head hits the pillow, the devil begins to bombard his mind to prevent him from sleeping and to stir up his anger even more."
Thompson, Robb D - http://www.winninginlife.org recovered from mental illness. 1 of the things he did was to mentally grab each tormenting thought & take it to the cross. Then he commanded it to repeat to Jesus' cross, what it had told him. Each thought fled when he did this. It always worked for Robb, even if he had to repeat the command from time to time.
- Old Testament
Genesis 32:24-30 NIV - 24Jacob
was left alone & a man (holy angel/God/Jesus/Messiah) wrestled with him till
daybreak. 25When the man saw that he could not overpower him,
he touched the socket of Jacob's hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled
with the man. 26Then the man said, "Let me go, for it is
daybreak." But Jacob replied, "I will not let you go unless you bless me."
27The man asked him, "What is your name?" "Jacob," he
answered. 28Then the man said, "Your name will no longer
be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with men & have overcome."
29Jacob said, "Please tell me your name." But he replied, "Why do you ask my name?" Then he blessed him there.
30So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, "It is because I saw God fact to face & yet my life was spared."
1st Samuel 16:12-16 KJV - The Lord said,
"Arise, anoint him, for this is he."
Then Samuel took the horn of oil & anointed him in the midst of his brothers.
The Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward...But, the Spirit of the Lord departed from Saul & an evil spirit from the Lord troubled him. Saul's servants said to him, "Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubles you.
Let our lord now command your servants, which are before you, to seek out a man, who is a cunning player on a harp.
It shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon you, that he shall play (music/hymns) with his hand & you shall be well." (Spiritual insight: evil spirit was NOT from God, but allowed by God)
1st Samuel 16:22-23 KJV - Saul sent to Jesse (David's dad), saying, "Let David, I pray you, stand before me, for he has found favor in my sight." It came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon (tormented) Saul, that David took a harp & played (music/hymns) with his hand. Saul was refreshed & was well, for the evil spirit had departed from him.
1st Samuel 18:10 KJV - It came to pass on the next day that the evil (distressing) spirit from (Satan, but allowed by) God came upon Saul; he prophesied in the midst of the house. (Then) David played (a harp) with his hand, as at other times. (To consider. God does not remove our/His gifts. However, there can be false prophecy, for Satan copies God.)
Psalm 16:7 KJV - I will
bless the Lord Who has given me counsel;
my heart also instructs me in the
Psalm 23:4 JKVer - Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me.
Psalm 91 - I shall not be afraid for the terror by night...nor for the pestilence that walks in darkness.
Psalm 134:1 JKVer - Behold, bless you the Lord, all you servants of the Lord, which by night stand in the house of the Lord.
Matthew 4:24 NKJV - They
brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases &
torments, & those who were demon-possessed, epileptics & paralytics;
He healed them.
Matthew 18:21-35 NIV - Peter came to Jesus & asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother (relative/close associate) when he sins against me? Up to 7 times?" Jesus answered, "I tell you, not 7 times, but 77 times. The kingdom of heaven (God) is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants (staff). As he began the settlement, a man who owed him 10,000 talents was brought to him. Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he, his wife, his children, & all that he had be sold to repay the debt. The servant fell on his knees before him. 'Be patient with me,' he begged.' I will pay back everything.' The servant's master took pity on him, canceled the debt & let him go. But when that servant went out, he found 1 of his fellow servants who owed him a 100 denarii. He grabbed him & began to choke him. 'Pay back what you owe me!', he demanded. His fellow servant fell to his knees & begged him, 'Be patient with me and I will pay you back.' He refused. Instead, he went off & had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt. When the other servants saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed, went, & told their master everything that had happened. Then the master called the servant in. 'You wicked servant,' he said. 'I cancelled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. Shouldn't you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?' In anger his master turned him over to the to the jailers to be tortured (tormented), until he should pay back all he owed. This is how My heavenly Father (God) will treat each of you unless your forgive your brother from your heart." (Otherwise the evil spirits of anger/hatred/resentment/self-pity/bitterness will be allowed to torment you & terrify you with nightmares/phobias/fears/anxiety: Spiritual Insight)
Colossians 1:13 NIV - He (God) has rescued us from the dominion of darkness & brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves, in Whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Hebrews 4:12 NIV - The word of God
is living & active, sharper than any double-edged sword.
It penetrates even to the dividing soul & spirit, joints & marrow. It judges the thoughts & attitudes of the heart.
2nd Corinthians 12:3-4 KJV - I (Paul) knew a man in Christ about 14 years ago (Whether in the body, I cannot tell, or whether out of the body, I cannot tell; God knows.) who was caught up the the 3rd heaven. He was caught up into paradise.
Revelation 1:9-10 NIV - I, John
(your brother & companion in the suffering, kingdom & patient endurance that are
ours in Jesus) was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God & the testimony of Jesus.
On the Lord's Day I was in the (Holy) Spirit.
Revelation 4:1 NIV - After this I looked, & before me was a door standing open in heaven.
The voice I heard 1st heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, "Come up here, & I will show you what must take place after this." At once I was in the (Holy) Spirit & before me was a throne in heaven with Someone sitting on it.
Revelation 16:13-14 KJVer - I saw 3 unclean (evil/demonic) spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, & out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are the spirits of devils, working miracles.

At School - "Some psychologists consider dreams to be doorways into the unconscious mind. Considering the vulnerability of children, dreams, bad dreams, & nightmares can be the manifestations of the presence of demons or indications that they are attempting to gain entry...
Cast it out by its characteristics. 'You, spirit that manifests as an abominable snowman figure, come out of him in Jesus' name.'" It is also feasible, in some typical situations, to pray for "deliverance right over the phone."
Gate of Abuse Intentional or unintentional abuse may trigger nightmares in the victim.
"I was very sorry to have scared him & did ask him to forgive me at that time...
The thing began to surface; we realized that fear had taken hold of him & was manifesting through his nightmares...
A tormenting fear that had entered him, & was manifesting at least 10 years later. We cast it out & there has been no recurrence."
Deliverance for Teens - Sample Prayers - Having read up on deliverance, prepared a list of problem areas, determined before God that he/she wants to be free, forgiven ALL who have hurt him/her, confessed any known sins & broken all ties with both sins & Satan, the born-again spirit-filled teen can pray (command):
"In the name of Jesus Christ, I take authority over the spirit(s) tormenting me.
I bind you, you spirit of _________ , (you spirit of _________ , you spirit of _________ , etc., naming any negative emotion such as fear, anger, torment),
I command (each of ) you (named spirits) to leave me right now (& never to return) in Jesus' name."
Baxter, Mary K with Lowery, Dr T L -
A Divine Revelation of the Spirit Realm
http://mywebpage.netscape.com/marykbaxter + http://www.spiritlessons.com/a_divine_revelation_of_heaven.htm
National Church of God, Washington DC, USA - Chapter 8 A Tangible Terror - Jesus allowed Mary to observe demons of fear reach out to woo, claw, bite & scream at victims + to observe a demon of claustrophobia not allowing one to breath freely, causing the individual to always feel cool, to hear lonely, mournful sounds humming in the subconscious, to fill one with darkness, to haunt the mind with fearful shapes. "The Bible points out that when a demon overtakes a person, the individual won't get any better unless the demon is cast out." A terrorist needs to be bound & cast out, in the name of Jesus. "'Demons cannot get into your spirit if you are a child of Mine," Jesus told me. 'Your spirit is the real you. That is the place where I dwell within you. As long as I dwell there, a demon cannot cohabit with Me.'"
Chapter 12 The Final War in the Cosmos "Jesus will not live in the same heart with a demon. When the Lord comes in, the devils have to flee." (Oppression is harassment from the outside. Cover yourself, your bed & your room with the blood of Jesus. Sing & praise. Read the Bible out loud. Demons will flee. Never rely on your feelings. Only rely on God & His Word. One's FIRST thoughts/ideas/impressions are often from God. Follow up thoughts are often from the enemy who argues with God.)
Chapter 9 A Strategy for Destruction "God told me to...tell you that interceding pray is the key to unlocking the blessings of heaven." "The demon knocked a picture of Jesus off the wall...Then the demon turned the bedside radio back on...
The demon...fear filled the room like a thick fog. The air was heavy, almost back to normal."
Baxter, Mary K with Lowery, TL - The Power of the Blood - Order book #1140 - http://mywebpage.netscape.com/marykbaxter - subtitle: Healing for Your Spirit, Soul & Body - Testimonies of the Power of the Blood - section Kept by the Blood, When Satan Oppresses shares the story of Pastor Roy Tucker. - During the night angry demons decided to immobilize/paralyze his body & levitate it to the ceiling. The only recourse/resistance
he had was to THINK, "In the name of Jesus & in the power of the blood of the Lamb, I resist the devil & all his evil spirits." Each repetition brought both physical & spiritual relief until regained more & more control of his body, vision & voice. Then he could whisper, "Jesus." & eventually yell it. It worked. He was free.
Bell, Stephen - No Other Gods - www.thekeym.org - Bell shares that children stopped having nightmares, after dolls & stuffed animals were removed from their bedrooms. Another man during sleep was nightly attacked by demons coming through his bedroom ceiling & entering his chest. Come to find out, his Buddhist wife in Korea was praying for him in the US at the time this occurred. After Bell burned her spiritual books, the wife accepted Jesus as her savior & his night terrors stopped.
Bubeck, Mark I. - The Adversary -
John W White in Foreword reminds us that salvation alone does not
automatically permanently heal, deliver, nor prevent nightmares from
returning. As in all life issues, one needs to be proactive + do preventive work.
When it comes to nightmares, one needs to refuse, reject, repudiate them OUT
LOUD, in the name of Jesus Christ, even if they attack you in the middle of the
night, in the dark, in bed, alone. We alone do NOT have any power, but as
a born-again Christian positioned in Christ at the right hand of God, we do have
all power. However, this power or position-in-Christ has to be wielded/used against
the nightmare, not sit on the shelf in the bedroom closet.
Chapter 2 Warfare with the Flesh "Failure to claim (appropriate nightly) our Lord's provided victory will lead on to deeper and more serious warfare & defeat."
Chapter 4 The Sword of the Spirit Is Still the Word of God. "Quoting of the Word & pressing it constantly against the contesting (evil) spirit (manifesting as or via a tormenting nightmare) always brings victory. The Word cannot be broken."
Chapter 5 Facing Satan's Kingdom "Any believer who determines" to take Jesus Christ personally & seriously or who God has destined for great spiritual feats "is going to be a special target of Satan. (To be ignorant of or) to ignore the weapons of our warfare provided by the Lord against Satan & his kingdom is spiritual suicide. We will soon meet spiritual disaster if we ignore this enemy" (who works overtime while we are sleeping, when we have neglected to say our bedtime prayers, when we have not covered ourselves with the blood of Jesus, or when we have not aggressively gone on the offensive against night terrors). "Scripture affirms that Satan is a defeated foe" (each night by each individual in whom Christ dwells).
Capps, Charles and Annette - Angels - www.charlescapps.com - The enemy/Satan assault us the easiest when we are asleep, off guard duty, when our conscious mind is not filtering out danger/evil. Thus we can ask God to send His Holy Spirit & His holy angels to protect/keep watch over us while we are sleeping. He will gladly, if we only ask.
Chavda, Mahesh - The Hidden Power of Speaking in Tongues - www.watchofthelord.com - Chapter 6 The Voice of the Lord shares that "speaking in tongues breaks the power of even the strongest natural leaders & sends (evil) principalities & (demonic) powers fleeing." [This shows that it is imperative for self defense to request of Jesus His salvation AND Holy Spirit baptism (with the evidence of speaking in holy tongues.)]
Copeland, Kenneth - John G Lake - www.kcm.org - In chapter 25 Adventures in God Lake shares testimonies of healing and translation. One such story is of a member of the Apostolic Tabernacle, Johannesburg, South Africa who asked the congregation to pray for his/her insane cousin in a Whales asylum. During prayer Lake's spirit was transported to the asylum; he laid hands on the head of the woman, commanded in the Name of Jesus Christ Son of God that the demon possessing her be cast out & commanded in the Name of Jesus Christ Son of God that she be healed by God's power. 3 weeks later a letter arrived stating that at that after 7 years in the asylum she had miraculously become well.
Cunningham, Karen Mayer - Defying Autism - A Miraculous Story of Hope (and deliverance from demons) www.autismcure.org - Working with Gospel Revelations Ministries (GRM), Plano, Texas, USA her son was healed of autism. The ministry recommended her "to begin playing Christian music in my home around the clock & especially in his room as he slept. She said the enemy attacks children when they are infirm or asleep...& to pray for my child every night...to anoint him with oil...Pray with conviction, 'I break every thing that is attached to my child, my husband, my life,'" in Jesus name. "Sometimes kids are tormented the most while trying to sleep."
Ferrell, Ana Mendez -
Regions of Captivity - Chapter 6 - The Different Regions of
Captivity - "Deep (spiritual) pits in the (demonic) regions of darkness make
up different kinds of jails. In some, the people are tormented by demons
of fear. These manifest as horrible spirits...In the natural world, these
people are afraid of the dark & cannot sleep in a dark room. They feel as
if something is stalking them...fearful that something unexpected &
catastrophic could happen... because this is what the trapped piece of their soul
is literally experiencing in its place of captivity." -

Chapter 2 I Met Christians Who Were Demonized "She told me many times, "I know I'm saved...Jesus lives in my heart, but I am tormented by demons.'"
Chapter 5 What Kinds of People Come for Deliverance? - "'The Holy Spirit has shown me that she is being attacked by demons of depression & demons of suicide. If you will have praise music in her home, the demons will leave'...
I...purchased a continuous play cassette player...& told her, 'Mom, don't ever turn this off...just let it play softly day & night.'" (Consider the elderly in nursing homes who have what the medical community calls 'sundowning' (psychiatric symptoms after sunset). Typically this is just another demonic manifestation, where the enemy has the upper hand when all mental & physical defenses are down & ignorance abounds.)
Chapter 12 More Personal Accounts - section Night Terrors Turn into Daytime Terror for a 4 Year Old - "Parents must 1st go through the deliverance process in order to break any legal permissions that demons might have to the (minor/disabled/ dependent) child's life through a generational curse...
'When he was 18 months old he had what the medical world refers to as a night terror. We recognized this experience as demonic torment...
He also manifested demons when we were with my husband's family at various times....
We knew that his grandfather was involved in Freemasonry, which we discovered were the main spirits operating in Seth.'"
Another person testifies, "My nightmares were so horrible that I would wake the entire dorm...How can I witness...during the day & terrify people at night...I didn't realize...that I had authority to come against these powers in Jesus Name...
I didn't know that unforgiveness was giving the demons permission to torment me."
Chapter 13 All That Jesus Does Has Purpose "Spiritual problems must have spiritual solutions. There was confusion & mental anguish. 'Tormentors' is 1 description of demon powers given by Jesus in Matthew 18:34-35."

Hughes, Vera A - From the Gates of Hall to the Gates of Glory - www.forministry.com/ustxinteroical - "I had to overcome... an addiction to morphine, just as the doctors had predicted...I was startled & frightened by the hallucinations I began to see. 1 of the hallucinations was particularly frightening. I saw a woman...riding a horse & drinking what looked like a cup of wine. She was laughing & mocking me, telling me that Satan had me & would never let me go...Many times I would feel such an evil presence in my room that I'd repeat the Name of Jesus over & over until I was able to fall asleep. 1 night a man came into my room & whispered that I was never going to leave the hospital. He told me that I was going to die & follow him to Hell. I kept resisting him, repeating the name of Jesus until he'd finally disappear. Then I began seeing a little monkey-like creature come into my room...I didn't understand that I was really seeing into the spiritual realm. Each night I continued to see terrible visions, telling me that I was not going to recover. Little did I know that I was engaged in spiritual warfare against the gates of darkness. Charles came in 1 day & prayed over my room...Neither of us understood the authority & power we had in Jesus...In His love & mercy, God honored my husband's prayer. From that day forward I never had another withdrawal symptom from the morphine addiction. I also did not have another hallucination or visit from the enemy's camp."

Kelley, Earthquake -
Order book #1122 "Bound to Lose, Destined to Win"
Chapter 1 - Life with a Wicked Man - "Having so much demonic activity in our home caused evil spirits to manifest before my eyes...Demonic spirits attach themselves to items that are used for occult purposes, so even though this witch was not in my bedroom at night, the room still came alive with demonic spirits. Grotesque and deformed creatures shook my bed, appeared in my closet, and came out from underneath my bed...1 spirit, which through my voodoo training I learned was a waster spirit (bogey/boogie man), sometimes chased me through the house at night...Evil spirits tormented me all night, every night. When I finally fell asleep, I had nightmares....
For 11 years straight, I was so tormented by these spirits that I slept no more than 2 hours a night...I did not have a good night's rest until I gave my life to Christ."
Chapter 2 - A Curse of Voodoo - "I learned about the (names of the) "waster spirit" & the "big face" spirit, both of which tormented me every night for 11 years." (Knowledge is power. In the name of Jesus Christ, bind each demon by name and place it under the feet of Jesus. In the name of Jesus, loose God's blessings. Repent of each sin that comes to mind. Ask Jesus to live in your heart. Ask Him to baptize you with His Holy Spirit. Praise Him for saying yes to each request, even if you cannot feel the evidence. Truth is what God says in scripture & not what we see or think or feel.)
Chapter 3 - Turning Around and Turning Back - "I repented of my sins & gave my life to Christ that day....I said, 'What do you want me to do, Lord?' 'Just start praising Me,' was His answer...I walked through the house praising & thanking the Lord. No evil spirits could torment me...My dreams changed & I slept well at night for the 1st time since I was 5 years old."
Chapter 4 A Trip to Hell - "The cherub replied, 'I was sent from the throne of God to protect you....Yes, you were in hell.' Naming 1 of the demonic spirits I had seen in hell, the cherub explained to me, 'This spirit goes throughout hell supervising the torment of people. He is coming to take you back to hell. But do not fear. I am here to protect you.'"
Chapter 6 Death and Rebellion - "As I lay in my bed, I...saw the big face spirit, the same one that had tormented me as a child. This evil spirit was laughing at me....I said, 'Get out of here, in the name of Jesus.'" "The (evil) spirit replied, 'You can't make me leave...You have no power over me because you are in rebellion.'" "Then I heard (another) voice say... 'You are stiff-necked, rebellious & heard-hearted...Repent...Finish the work God told you to do.'" "Not long after that I had another unusual experience...I thought to myself, 'Lord what is this? Who are these (evil) men?' I heard the Holy Spirit say, 'These are NOT human beings. They are evil spirits from the kingdom of hell. Their master, the devil, sent them. Throughout your while life, they have been assigned to kill you (through abortion/witchcraft/accidents/ suicide/cancer)... The weapons of your warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. Use the name of Jesus. Plead the blood.'"
Chapter 9 Who's Watching the Children - "In the occult world, the nighttime hours are called bewitching hours, & that is when evil spirits come into the house to torment children. Before they go to bed, fill their minds with things of God & pray with them"..."I heard something tapping on the side of my bed...I turned on the light & didn't see anything. Then the Holy Spirit said to me, 'It's the toys in the box.' I threw those toys away immediately & the tapping stopped. Evil spirits attach themselves to these kinds of demonic toys." "When I was young, I was watching television late 1 night & saw a demonic spirit jump out of the television & jump back in"...
Chapter 10 There's Something in My Room - "Demonic spirits even have a favorite classroom,...right there in you child's room, especially at night...Nightmares (can) become more common this time of year (Halloween)...Children (can) start experiencing nightmares between ages 3-5... Nightmares can be demonic attacks caused by allowing these evil spirits access to your home (via occult TV/radio/ music/toys/etc)...Demonic spirits will not leave until a believer in Christ (who is NOT actively walking in unconfessed sin) takes authority over them in the name of Jesus and commands them to leave."
"If the waster spirit is NOT dealt with, it will eventually move from night torments to house haunting...
If not dealt with the child will (often) grow up to become a fearful & paranoid adult who might suffer from panic attacks...
Another spirit that children deal with is the big face spirit, which has a very large face and no visible body. It often attacks children who have a call and an anointing of God upon their lives, so the child will not fulfill his destiny in Christ. Pay attention to children who have strong disciplinary problems. This spirit will teach children how to gain power...It will give the child step-by-step instructions on how to destroy people."
"The 3rd spirit that children deal with at night is the pillardoc spirit...I even watched this spirit split itself into several different spirits, each of which will attack other family members." "The big face spirit will have them involved in gangs, alcohol, & drugs. The pillardoc spirit will promise the child fame, power, or whatever it thinks the child might want.
If your child obeys these spirits, they will own your child...Those who are being tormented at night are primarily dealing with these 3 spirits...Even black spots & hoops that appear in the room and on the ceiling at night are an indication that the waster sprit is in the room"...
A parent is responsible for his child's spiritual welfare. He/she can declare, "I might not see you (evil spirit/spirits), but my child says you are here, so I know you are here. I know who & why you're here. The blood of Jesus defeated you & every evil spirit at the cross. I am going to anoint my child with oil & pray. I am covering my child, room & home with the protection of the blood of Jesus. You cannot torment my child any longer. I command you, in the name of Jesus, to leave this place & never return." (Be sure to lead your child to a saving relationship with Jesus & baptism in the Holy Spirit. Teach him/her how to resist/evict the enemy by their quoting Psalm 91, saying the name of Jesus, applying the blood of Jesus, anointing their doors & windows with consecrated oil, not watching adult movies/TV, not listening to adult music such as rock, not watching non-Christian cartoons, not reading stories about fairies/witches/ wizards, not being involved in ANY activity which makes them uncomfortable, not playing fantasy games, & not possessing/playing with ugly/demonic looking toys. The same principles apply to adults who can do self-deliverance.)
Chapter 14 Questions and Answers - In any new residence/hotel/bedroom "immediately take authority over any spirits that might have taken up residence. Speak blessings & the blood of Jesus over the home, your possessions, & your family. Even in a newly built home...never allow demonic spirits to stay in your home & torment you...
After my friend moved into the (newly purchased) house, his children were tormented every night...As soon as I walked in the house...the waster spirit even started to materialize...We took anointing oil, prayed the Word of God over the house & commanded the evil spirits to leave, in the name of Jesus. We prayed in (tongues) our prayer language of the Holy Spirit as we walked throughout the house...The children never had another problem with tormenting spirits... Some people play praise & worship music in the hotel rooms where they stay...to change the the atmosphere in the room...I find that I must pray over every hotel room where I stay"...
1 night "I was attacked in my (hotel) room by evil spirits. 1 spirit...towered over me & picked me up...I said, 'Get your hand off me. I command you to leave me alone in the name of Jesus. I plead the blood of Jesus. Let me go in the name of Jesus'...With that he released me...2 more spirits came out of the floor...Again I said, 'Get out of here in the name of Jesus. I plead the blood of Jesus; I plead the blood of Jesus.' The spirits disappeared."
"A spirit called pavor nocturnus...will choke people at night, & it also causes sudden infant death syndrome...by using its oversized hands, by using a rope, or by suffocating the person with its wings...Don't go to bed without praying. Pray over your babies before you put them to bed. Don't let a night go by without praying for God's protection over your family & home."

Chapter 9 Bold Confrontation May Be Needed Father & daughter share a nightmare deliverance testimony. To NOT reveal the possibility of demonic oppression is a disservice to a child; however one may want to first rule out any medical &/or psychiatric/emotional root causes, + tenderly and spiritually prepare the child, enlisting the help of the Holy Trinity & their angels. If the child does have demons & exorcism works, the child must be equipped & willing to ward off any returning demons, having 1st taken Jesus as his/her savior and baptizer in the Holy Spirit.

Ridding Your Home of Spiritual Darkness -
1-Destroy any object that would offend God.
2-Renounce any past personal or family attachment to object.
3-Repent of any owner/occupant sin committed in each room (especially bedrooms) of your residence.
4-Pray for the Lord to heal any trauma caused in each room (especially bedrooms).
5-Bless the home. Consecrate (& anoint with oil) each room + the land outside. I
f you are a Catholic, you can request a priest to come & bless the home.

He would see all sorts of black, ugly animals coming toward him, & then he would completely lose his own personality for those hours. When it was over, he would almost unfailingly sing, 'He can break every fetter; He can set you free.' in a loud voice for the whole town to hear. His own personality then would come back."

Yoder, Dr Rebecca Brown - Prepare For War -
In chapter 16 The Spirit and the Spirit World, Dr Brown
shares the testimony of a pastor who attended satanic coven meetings & sacrifices
during his sleep. Traditional deliverance from demons did not help, as
it had in the past. He did have resolution when, in the name of Jesus
Christ, he commanded the demons afflicting his spirit to leave, & subsequently
asked the Lord to permanently sever any "demonic" link between his soul & his
spirit, according to Hebrews 4:12. (Please note that this pastor had been
subjected to satanic practices as a child by his family.) According to Dr
Brown-Yoder, sodomy can occur not only from individuals & demons,
but also from human spirits of witches/Satanists/occult
practitioners, especially at night during sleep, when individuals believe
they are having nightmares. In addition to
doing the above, one also
needs to renounce any "inherited" demons or "inherited"
spiritual demonic link
to one's soul. (Believers in Jesus Christ do not block the Holy Spirit
from communicating with their human spirit or soul.)

In Chapter 8 Dealing with the Thief we learn that God commands us to take authority over Satan and demand 7x what he has stolen from us, if it his doing and not due to our own sin. See Proverbs 6:31. Be reminded that Job was given 2x what Satan stole.
Chapter 9 the Final Court of Appeal shares an awesome approach to the Judge of the universe. Brown urges us to petition the Judge of the universe to bring the torment of nightmares to an end. She urges us to place a restraining order on Satan and his staff, in the name of Jesus.

Breaking the Strings of Witchcraft - 7/2012 -
https://fullersmission.wordpress.com/tag/witchcraft/ 4/25/2014 -
"One young mother wanted to be delivered from the darkness of her nightmares.
Coming into the light of Jesus Christ, she accepted him as her personal Lord & Savior.
Together we prayed a prayer of repentance, & then deliverance with her. But she wasnít the only one who was set free.
Jack noticed that her chubby infant had colored strings tied around his wrists that were cutting into the flesh.
Much of Africa is tied by strings of darkness to witchcraft. The babyís aunt had placed the strings from the local witch doctor for protection from evil spirits and disease on the child. Jack explained that the power of Christ through his Holy Spirit is greater than any strings made by man. He taught her that now, as a Christian, she had the power of Christ in her to pray for her baby. He asked if she would like to cut off the strings. 'Yes! I am more than ready,' she replied. Jack handed her his pocket knife. One wrist at a time, she broke the strings as she smiled lovingly at her child, & handed them to Jack for disposal. The miracle of love & light surrounded us all in the middle of the harvest for the Kingdom of God."

BECCA: Well obviously you start seeing drastic or even gradual personality changes. If a child is full of joy & becomes fearful, if they start to withdraw, if they're starting to be drawn to want to watch shows of darkness. Even with teenagers' wardrobe will start to change. For girls, their makeup will change. Their hair will change. You'll even begin to feel in your home, you won't feel that freedom of relationship. There will be tension there. Sometimes they'll become depressed. Depression, nightmares, bad dreams & night terrors will begin to rest on a child or a teenager.
SID: Speaking of tormenting, tell me about that 9 year old girl.
BECCA: We prayed for a 9 year old. The pastor said, "She's really struggling. Can you meet with her?" My husband & I began to pray for her. I knew by word of knowledge (insight from the Holy Spirit) that she hadn't received salvation. So we prayed for her. The reason why they brought her to us was because she was having repeated nightmares...In this nightmare, this snake would come & bite her in the stomach. From the time she had that 1st dream, she literally was living in chronic pain. They had taken her to the doctor & run every medical test. They could not find anything wrong with her, so they had prayed for her. When they brought her to us the Lord told me she wasn't saved. So we led her to the Lord (got her saved). After a few minutes she said, "Miss Becca, I feel good." But then a few minutes later she said, "But Miss Becca, this pain is back." So we knew at that moment this is a deliverance issue, so we asked the Lord. The Lord showed me prophetically that there were horror movies in the home. I asked the mother, "Are you allowing her to watch horror movies?" The mother said, "No."
I said, "But are there some in the home." She said, "Yes. Her dad loves them, has a whole bookshelf full of horror movies."
I explained to the mother, "It doesn't matter that she's not allowed to watch them...
Having them in the home is a red carpet invitation to the demonic to harass your child." So we prayed & broke the power of witchcraft that was coming from those horror movies. As soon as we did, this 9 year old little girl (we'll call Sarah) looks up & grins, "Miss Becca, the pain is gone." From that moment she has not had any further pain. The dad was so elated to see his child free that when the mom went home, he literally got rid of all of those horror movies from their home.
4. If you feel a place you go to has a demonic influence.
"Pray: (In Jesus' name) Father God, I loose Your (holy warrior) angels to prepare the atmosphere in ( ____'s) place (bedroom, or other location). (In Jesus' name) I declare Your Light Holy Spirit into the Air Above, into the Land Beneath, & into the Water Below. Light of Jesus Christ come into the atmosphere of ( _____'s) place, & bring (Your) Love, Light, & Wisdom. Bring the Truth of Your Gospel to ( _____'s) place (& mind) in Jesus name. (Thanks &) amen."
- "DEVER ('Pestilence') is the other demonic herald who marches
with YHWH to battle (Hab. 3:5). Dever is also mentioned in Psalms
91:5Ė6: 'Thou shalt not be afraid for the Terror (Pahad) by
night; Nor for the Arrow (Hez) that flieth by day; Nor for the Pestilence (Dever)
that walketh in the darkness; Nor for the Destruction (Ketev) that wasteth at
noonday.' Not only Dever but also the other words italicized above have been
plausibly identified as names of demons. The 'Arrow' is a familiar symbol in
folklore, for disease or sudden pain, & Ketev (Qetev; cf. Deut.
32:24; Isa. 28:2; Hos. 13:14) is in this instance the personification of
over-powering noonday heat, known also to Greek & Roman demonology."
Yoder, Daniel - http://www.harvestwarriors.com/downloads/Harvest_Warriors_3-08.pdf - "Does Satan have the legal right to torment us (born again Holy Spirit baptized Christians/Jews) with nightmares about things possibly to come?
The answer is 'NO.' I asked God to put a restraining order on Satan and his demons to keep them from giving us such nightmares & visions. Then I got up & re-anointed (with holy oil) our home & cleansed (of demonic squatters) & sealed it. Daniel & I slept peacefully the rest of the night...
When you awaken at night, overwhelmed by fear & worry or sorrow, which do not just go away when you rebuke them, get up, get out of your bed & go get your Bible. Immerse yourself in Godís Word. As you read your Bible and concentrate on Godís Word you will find that your fears & worries simply melt away. Time spent in Godís Word also brings great relief from sorrow. This is 1 very import weapon we have available to us in this invisible war...
Where does the unseen invisible spiritual realm & the physical realm meet & interact? In your brain. The battlefield is in our minds...
Donít ever forget, demons can, from outside of you, inject thoughts & emotions into your minds. If you do not control what goes on in your thoughts, you are going to be destroyed. You must take every thought captive to make it obedient to Jesus Christ...
One night, in utter desperation I cried out to the Lord, 'Father please, what can I do? I feel like my house is an open thoroughfare to any evil spirit that wants to come through. You know how these spirits are tormenting us. I just canít stand it anymore'...
You shall take the anointing oil, & anoint the tabernacle & all that is in it; & you shall hallow it & all its utensils, & it shall be holy. Exodus 40:9 As I pondered these scriptures, the Lord showed me that I must take oil & anoint my house & sanctify it holy unto Him. He also showed me that the children of Israel had anointed the doorposts & lintel of their home with the blood of the Passover lamb to keep the death angel from coming in. Now the death angel was a spirit. It didnít need a physical door to enter a home. The door was an opening, & as such was symbolic. These days, we have many openings into our homes. Doors, windows, air ducts, fireplaces, stove vents, etc. After praying & thinking this all over, I took oil I had on hand [cooking oil (blessed it)] and placed some on the doorposts and the lintels of all the doors and on each window and the fireplace & every opening into my house, except 1 door. I spoke out loud as I did this, proclaiming that I was anointing my home in the name of God the Father, Jesus Christ & Holy Spirit. I did not make any sort of symbol with the oil, I just put a small dab in each place. Then I stood in my house & in the name of Jesus commanded every spirit to leave my house through the un-anointed door at once. Then I anointed the last door & asked the Lord to sanctify & seal my home. The change was immediate. Peace & quiet came over my home. The demons were sealed out & not able to get back into my house. Since that time, I have always kept my home anointed & sealed...
A 'doorpost' is the vertical piece that goes up & down on either side of the door. A 'lintel' is the horizontal piece that goes across the top of the door. Same with the windows. If you have a computer & are hooked up to the internet, you need to anoint the cord that goes from your computer to the phone jack & ask the Lord to seal it so that no demons can be sent into your home through your computer...
Anoint your mirrors. There is nothing evil about a mirror, but people can use them as doorways to astral-project through. It is also good to anoint the cord that goes from your phones to the phone jack.
After you have done this, leaving 1 door un-anointed, stand & speak out loud. Say the following:
Step 1: 'In the name of Jesus I take authority over every curse coming against me, my spouse, family, marriage, children, animals, home & everything we have. I command you curses to be broken NOW in the name of Jesus.'
Step 2: 'In the name of Jesus I take authority over every evil spirit in this house. I command you spirits to get out of this door right now, & off of my property & not touch anything on your way, in the name of Jesus.'
Step 3: Anoint the last door & pray & ask the Lord to cleanse & seal your home & shield all of you completely from the evil spiritual realm...
As people come & go from your home, sometimes the seal gets broken & you will need to re-cleanse your home. However, you donít need to anoint everything, just the doors that people have been through. If you are anointing your home on a routine daily basis as I usually do, you can just do the doors. Later on, the Lord showed me that I was to do the same thing with the ground around my house. In order to do this I put oil into a plastic spray bottle. As I walked around the edge of my property, I sprayed a line of oil on the ground. I proclaimed that my property belonged to God & that I was asking Him to take possession of, seal & protect it. Before closing the final space with the line of oil,
I broke every curse off of the land, & commanded all demons off of it in the name of Jesus. Then I finished closing the line with the oil, praying & asking God to seal the land from any demonic intrusion. This, too brings much peace & protection.Ē
Yoder, Rebecca Brown - 11/22/2010 - http://www.harvestwarriors.com/tidbits.htm
"'Father, in the name of Jesus I humbly ask to come before your throne as Judge of the universe. I come only under the covering of the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Lord, I am asking you to judge between me & Satan & his kingdom. Does Satan have the legal right to torment me with nightmares & flash backs of _______________________?
If you render judgment that he does not, then I am asking that You (Father God to) put a restraining order on Satan & all of his demons & force them to stop giving me these nightmares & flashbacks immediately & forever!.Please put a guard over my mind to stop all such demonic thoughts from tormenting me. I thank You for it in the name of Jesus.'
As tormenting thoughts & memories (attempt to) come into your mind, immediately command the demons putting those thoughts into you to be gone at once in the name of Jesus. Then turn your mind onto scripture. Sometimes Satan will rebel, break through & start putting the nightmares & flashbacks into your mind again at some future date. If this happens, immediately go before Godís throne & ask Him to discipline Satan for violating His command & put a halt to all such activities. God is always faithful to do so. This provided the solution to the terrible torment in Danielís life. It has also been a great help to me during periods of great grief & loss."

Kerr, Kat - The Temple - Spirit, Soul & Body - DVD 2012 - www.revealingheaven.com - Recurring nightmares, even after deliverance, may be due to evil deposits remaining in or on soul layers not yet recognized/noticed/realized, repented of, rejected & evicted in Jesus' name. Regarding evil deposits, bind & loose from self. At time of trauma, one can receive a soul layer from victimizer, especially if event is a sexual assault, or at a time of war, genocide, terrorism, or extreme violence. Since there is typically a soul exchange, a layer of one's own soul may also be taken into captivity by Satan &/or by the violator. Call it back in Jesus' name. Enlist heavenly healing to transpire in one's soul. Forbid any evil to return or assault. Sometimes an inappropriate co-dependency by mutual consent will result in a soul tie where soul layers are exchanged. In Jesus' name & power, loose from oneself & send soul layers back to sender.
Father John Hampsch's bedtime prayer
Jesus, through the power of the Holy Spirit, go back into
my memory as I sleep.
Every hurt that has ever been done to me, heal that hurt. Every hurt that I have ever caused to another person, heal that hurt. All relationships that have been damaged in my whole life, that I'm not aware of, heal...
Lord, if there is anything that I need to do, if I need to go to a person (to make amends), because he is still suffering from my hand, bring to my awareness that person. I choose to forgive; I ask to be forgiven.
Remove whatever bitterness may be in my heart Lord, & fill the empty spaces with Your love. Thank You, Jesus. Amen

Prayer to Release Sleep -
- "Lord I repent &renounce for myself & my ancestors (on
both sides) for all fear, distrust, disobedience, unbelief, hardening of hearts,
& rejection of the Gospel resulting in the inability to
enter into the rest of the Lord.
I repent & renounce for myself & my ancestors for failing to heed God & rest from works as God rested from His works.
I repent & renounce for myself & my ancestors (on both sides) for not being diligent to enter the rest of God
& for not drawing near to the throne of grace to receive mercy & forgiveness.
I break, shatter, destroy and smash the curse (that I will find no rest & there shall be no resting place for the sole of my foot & that I will have a trembling heart, failing eyes & despair of soul, no assurance of life, be in dread night & day, & long for evening in the morning & morning in the evening).
Forgive me Lord & my generational line (on both sides) for not perceiving when You spoke to us, even though You spoke more than once in dreams & visions during my sleep. Lord, You were trying to withdraw me from my own purposes & pride. I repent for myself & my generational line (on both sides).
I ask Your forgiveness. I ask that You would again speak while I sleep & grant me (& my family tree) sound sleep.
I renounce all worship of the serpent in my generation line (on both sides) & (for) believing any lie of the enemy.
I disconnect myself from the effects of eating from the tree of knowledge of good & evil.
I choose now to draw my life from You, the Tree of Life.
I repent for grumbling & murmuring instead of thanking You for all the blessings You have given & want to give to me.
I ask You Lord to heal & take me (& our family tree) into Your perfect rest and time.
I choose to obey the voice of God and not go to the right or to the left or follow other gods to serve them.
I bind myself to Godís wisdom, discretion, and understanding and
I commit into Your hands, Lord, all that concerns me, my: family, household, finances, life, whole body, soul, spirit & all that You are doing in my life.

I put aside (any) orgies, drunkenness, sexual immorality & debauchery (in our family tree).
I choose not to walk in dissension & jealously.
I choose not to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
Rather, I clothe myself/us in Jesus Christ.
Lord, if I am (any of us are) stuck in time, domains, quadrants, or dimensions because of sin in my generational line, or due to a life event, I ask You Lord to forgive the sin & release me/us & adjust my/our time clock & natural cycles of my/our body into the correct creative time order. Lord, would You move me/us into the destiny You have written for me/us.
I demand back from the thief a 7- fold return for everything good stolen from me/us & our generational line.
Lord, I ask Lord for my/our destiny & inheritance that You have ordained for me/us.
I repent & renounce for deliberately giving away & relinquishing/handing over my/our destiny & inheritance to the enemy
because of not (knowing &/or) believing that You would fulfill Your word.
I ask You Lord to close the unrighteous doors that were opened & to open the doors for righteous blessings to come in.
I request 100 fold blessings, Lord.

Hammon, Jane -
JANE: I have a friend that actually had a dream. When he went to bed he had actually had a torn Achilles, & that night he dreamed that he was in a healing meeting, that somebody called out a word of knowledge & prayed for him, & in the dream he was healed. When he woke up the next day he was 100% whole.
JANE: I believe that God gives warning dreams. That's where my whole journey with dreams started, because I had a dream about my brother that he got very sick & died. In my dream it seemed so real that I thought that it had actually happened. When I woke up I laid there thinking, was that real or was that a dream. I realized that it had been a dream. I began to comfort myself saying, oh, 'It was only a dream'. I heard the voice of God say to me loudly, 'It is NOT just a dream. Get up & pray.' I got up and I prayed for my brother; eventually I felt a peace & went back to bed. The next morning my mother called me to say that my brother the night before was on a deep woods camping trip when his appendix ruptured. By the time they got him in from the woods he actually almost died, but he was going to live. I believe it's because God woke me up to intercede for him.
JANE: I (as a child) & my children had nightmares. A nightmare can be God trying to get your attention, because not every dream is from God, but neither is every nightmare from the devil, because God gave Abimelech a dream in Genesis chapter 20 when he had taken Abraham's wife Sarah as he'd said, 'She's my sister'. It says in that verse God came to him at night in a dream & said, 'Abimelech, you're a dead man' Okay. This is not a happy dream. Okay. This is probably a night-mare.
JANE: Sometimes God will give us a nightmare get our attention, I believe, like He did with my brother. Okay. He gave me a nightmare to get my attention so that I would pray. But when it's a demonic dream, I believe that we can stand against the demonic force (plans/assignments). We can believe that the blood of Jesus breaks the power of every demonic thing...I'm going to pray right now that if you're being tormented by demonic dreams, I just declare to you right now that the Lord Himself is rising up. It declares in the scripture that He gives His beloved sweet sleep.
I break the power of every demonic assignment to torment you, to harass you & to afflict you at night in your dreams.
In Jesus' name I break the power of it and I decree sweet sleep.
JANE: If you really even look at scripture you know that people even receive impartation at night when they sleep in dreams. So it's such an important thing. Scientists actually say that everybody dreams, it is just a matter of do we remember our dreams. I like to train people how to capture their dreams...& how to bring that forth
so that we're not just being hearers but actually doers of what God is speaking to us.

God showed Larry that, "The Enemy's Attacks Are All Fakes, Facades & Falsehoods!"
Jesus' fruit (HIS righteousness/peace/joy/happiness/gladness/contentment/love) is NOT seasonal.
On the cross Jesus bore the (medical/chemical/demonic/evil/hormonal) cause of every negative emotion.
The kingdom of God is in us 24/7, if we are born-again, if we have repented & asked Yeshua to be our Lord.
Part 2 has testimony of woman with bipolar for 40 years (parent also had bipolar),
who during 3rd reading of book Internal Affairs recognized that Jesus had already borne the reason for her bipolar.
She took that and her healing began; now she is free. She now recognizes & rejects all negative/sabotaging emotions.
Part 3 address nightmares/night terrors.

The Power Of The
Night Vigil -
"The witch doctor then takes it up from there; he opens a file for you, puts your name on the file & keeps it in the outgoing basket. At 12 o'clock in the night, he gets up, pulls out the files & leaves for their evil meeting.
He brings up your case in the meeting and they all work together in agreement to bring to manifestation the evil that your enemy desires. What happens next is this; as they commence their manipulations against you, you will begin to have strange dreams, you may see animals like cows, lions & dogs or even masquerades & mad men chasing you. You may see a big mountain before you, which you are trying to climb but you find it difficult to climb. This signifies a difficulty they want to put into your life. While all that is going on, God will be tipping you off. He will be telling you to rise up & begin to pray. He knows what is going on. He wants you neutralize through nighttime (spiritual) warfare.
If you fail to pray, the enemies will not be restricted in the evil plan they want to hatch.
If unfortunately they meet with an open door in your life the problem begins from that day on."
Dominion over Common Warfare Dreams @ Dr. Itiola's book Dreams, Visions and Spiritual Warfare
Matthew 13:24-25 Another parable put He forth unto them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way."
"According to this (scripture) passage, the enemy chooses the night hours to sow tares in your wheat fields.
In my book, Night Time Warfare, I explore the topic exhaustively. Also, many times evil is perpetrated between the hours of 12 midnight and 3.00 am. When the evil is going on, you are likely to have a 'bad' dream that wakes you up badly shaken. The best action a dreamer can take is to spend some time in prayer to use the revelations to destroy the 'tares' sown in his field. If action is NOT taken, the enemy can have his way as long as he chooses."

Dennis Cramer -
5/10-16/2010 transcript SID reads testimony from Cramer's book, ď'At the time of your visit I was in therapy at least twice a week due to post-traumatic stress disorder. I had been struggling with thoughts of suicide and depression, as well as a number of physical issues that were unresolved. The night before the service I woke up, yet again, at 3:15 a.m. & saw what I believe to be a big black bird that I knew must have been an evil spirit. The next day God spoke this to me through you (Dennis Cramer).'
(SID continues broadcast,) This is so awesome. Listen to this (prophecy given to her by Dennis).
'Youíve also been tormented at night. A spirit comes into your bedroom around 3:00 in the morning, 3:15 in the morning and it begins to attack you with nightmares and health issues, pressure, stress & strain that lasts all day.
The last 9.5 months youíve been saying, 'Iím under attack.' No matter what you do you canít get free.
But the Lord says, 'The Breaker is here this morning. I am that Breaker, Jesus, Jesus the Messiah, the Lord. I snapped the neck of that spirit on assignment against you'. You will see a return of your physical health. Now every organ & every system will work as it was designed to work. You will sleep like a baby.'
Then this person reports, 'I have not been woken up at that time since.
My health is back completely. Iíve not struggled with nightmares or stress.'Ē
(Dennis Cramer)"I then saw the (evil) spirit coming into their bedroom around 3:15 in the morning, which was exactly when she would wake up with nightmares, fear, dread, & cold sweats. I prophesied her body was being healed."

Satanís Underground by Lauren Stratford - "Another bully tactic that Satan uses at night when you go to bed is the threat to torment you with nightmares (demon spirits). Come back at him with this scripture saying:
I will both lie down in peace & sleep, for You alone, oh Lord, make me to dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8...
We do not wrestle against flesh & blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12...
I will lie down and sleep in peace, for You alone, 0 Lord, make me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8...
Donít give up! Donít quit, keep praying (praising & quoting scripture - out loud)...
When you see the evil one sneaking up, address him in the name of Jesus Christ...
'No, I spot you, and I see you for what you are. I reject, renounce, rebuke, shatter & break your curses.
I will allow no spirit that is not from God to remain around me. I am not subject to you, for Jesus has set me free. The Lord Jesus Christ is my Master. I obey Him only. Go! I command you to leave my presence in the name of my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ'...Donít be discouraged...Never give up."
The Bully Principle prayer: "Satan, I resist you and every oppressive spirit in the name of Jesus. I resist fear, discouragement, self-pity, and depression. I speak the Word of truth, in the power of God and I give you no place in my life. I give no opportunity to you. I am delivered from oppression by the blood of the Lamb. My heart belongs to Jesus, my Lord and Savior & Him only will I serve. (In Jesus name I speak.) Amen!"

"Every decision you make is a seed you sow.

Our inappropriate thoughts throughout the day affect our sleep as much as does the junk food we nibble on throughout the day affect our health. Every crumb we give heed to throughout the day will affect us at night.
The longer we delay to reject wrong/unhealthy thinking the longer it will negatively affect our sleep.

One day she found herself looking down from her housetop; she saw her body on the grass. She was able to witness to others about Jesus. This resulted in her being a threat to Satan, who retaliated with intimidating nightmares; he also sent the spirit of death to harass her. Later when she became addicted to drugs (beginning with medication from a medical problem), Satan did not need to bother her with nightmares; the nightmares stopped. Subsequently, the Holy Spirit both healed her addiction & also revealed what was happening with/triggering/causing the nightmares when they returned after her healing.

Religious Demonology http://www.religiousdemonology.com/laity.htm - Catholic exorcism laity manual "The victim is often bothered by nightmares of a demonic nature, disturbed in their sleep so they get little rest, or waking to see things in their room. This is done to wear the victim down & make them fatigued."
http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/basis/VITA-ANTONY.html - "Antony
departed to the tombs, which happened to be at a distance from the village; &
having bid 1 of his acquaintances to bring him bread at intervals
of many days, he entered one of the tombs, the other having shut the door on
him, he remained within alone, when the enemy could
not endure it. But was even fearful that in a short time Antony would fill the
desert with the discipline, coming 1 night with a multitude of demons,
he so cut him with stripes that he lay on the ground speechless from the
excessive pain. For he affirmed that the torture had been so excessive that no
blows inflicted by man could ever have caused him such torment. But by the
Providence of God, for the Lord never overlooks them that hope in Him, the next
day his acquaintance came bringing him the loaves."
"9. He was carried (back to the tomb) therefore by the man, & as he was wont, when the door was shut he was within alone...the enemy, who hates good, marvelling that after the blows he dared to return, called together his hounds & burst forth, 'Ye see,' said he, 'that neither by the spirit of lust nor by blows did we stay the man, but that he braves us, let us attack him in another fashion.' But changes of form for evil are easy for the devil, so in the night they made such a din that the whole of that place seemed to be shaken by an earthquake, & the demons as if breaking the 4 walls of the dwelling seemed to enter through them, coming in the likeness of beasts & creeping things. The place was on a sudden filled with the forms of lions, bears, leopards, bulls, serpents, asps, scorpions, & wolves, & each of them was moving according to his nature. The lion was roaring, wishing to attack, the bull seeming to toss with its horns, the serpent writhing but unable to approach, & the wolf as it rushed on was restrained; altogether the noises of the apparitions, with their angry ragings, were dreadful. But Antony, stricken and goaded by them, felt bodily pains severer still. He lay watching, however, with unshaken soul, groaning from bodily anguish; but his mind was clear, & as in mockery he said,'...
the Lord hath made you weak you attempt to terrify me by numbers: a proof of your weakness is that you take the shapes of brute beasts.' Again with boldness he said'...
For faith in our Lord is a seal and a wall of safety to us.' So after many attempts they gnashed their teeth upon him, because they were mocking themselves rather than him. 10. Nor was the Lord then forgetful of Antony's wrestling, but was at hand to help him."
Simpson, Chris -
"Always remember to pray before you go to sleep at night. The enemy will often seek to attack you in your subconscious when he's been thwarted in your conscious life. The following is a good model for night-time prayer (TO BE SPOKEN OUT LOUD): 'Lord, I submit my life & my family to your safekeeping. Please post warrior angels around us tonight. Satan, I forbid you, in the name of Jesus, to attack or distract us in any way as we sleep. Amen.'"

Spirit Wife And Spirit Husband - extracted from Dr. Itiola's book A Woman's worst Nightmare -
If you have, or are having dreams or nightmares of a sexual nature that you know are (experience) as real as life, dreams where you cannot exactly distinguish the real from the unreal, please seek deliverance. Don't allow Satan & his demonic hosts to degrade your body which is the Temple of God...Demonic spirits that function in this sexually perverse way must be renounced & cast out, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

"If you are being attacked in a dream or in
person by a demon, devil, incubus, succubus, Satan, unclean spirit, unclean bird
or alien, immediately cry out the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and plead
the Blood of the Lamb of God. If you have the mind, say,
'The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth rebuke you. The
Lord Adonai rebuke you. I claim the Blood of the Lamb, the shed Blood of the
Lord Jesus Christ, that you leave.
In the Name of Jesus get out.'
Repeat until it leaves. It will leave...
If you don't have the mind, let's just say you are in a complete panic or overwhelmed with a total oppressive paralyzing terror, say: 'Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus' Repeat (continually until you receive peace).
Never say. 'I rebuke you, I command you, or I adjure you.' (unless you say, IN THE NAME OF JESUS)
This will only make it personal & it may cause you more attack. Quote scripture. Jesus quoted scripture.
In Matthew Chapter 4 when He was tempted (attacked/abducted) by the devil He said: 'It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God...It is written again, You shall not tempt the Lord your God...Away with you Satan, for it is written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God, & Him only you shall serve.'"

"When I was about eight...Not long after the little quirks became part of my life, they were joined by nights filled with terror, which came in spite of all the precautionary organizing & straightening. Not every night, but often enough to make bedtime something I didn't welcome. The lights would go out and suddenly it was darker in my room then I could bear. It didn't matter (if I could just ignore the sound of my heart thudding) that I could hear my parents' voices down the hallway...I knew there was someone just outside the window, just waiting for the right moment, when we were all sleeping, with no one left on guard. Will the man break in? What will he do? Will he kill us all?"

Bedtime Prayer -
http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/80beats/?p=38116 6/29/2012 - "The dominance of blue light at night really is why living things feel more tired at that time (rather than the fact that itís dark), and the dominance of yellow light in the morning is why we wake up then, rather than the fact that itís lighter."
Some medications, activities, and

Nightmares: The Science and Solution of Those Frightening Visions During Sleep - Unholy Spirits spring 2009 editorial http://www.bu.edu/bostonia/spring09/nightmares/ "The (antiquated) official criteria define a nightmare as a frightening dream that occurs in REM sleep, causes the dreamer to awaken, & creates emotional distress...
Nightmares very often involve supernatural characters that attack or target the dreamer in some way. I mean monsters, creatures, demons, spirits, unusual animals, & the like. From a cognitive (mental/soul/brain/scientific) point of view, 1 interesting aspect of the presence of the (spiritual) supernatural being in a nightmare is that the dreamer cannot read the mind of the supernatural being. All we can do is understand that the monsterís intentions are malevolent." In nightmares "the self escapes unscathed only if it refuses to look at or speak to or in any way engage the monster. When the self engages the monster, all kinds of ill effects ensue, including, in ancestral cultures, demonic or spirit possession (or evil spirit oppression).
There is a danger involved in the encounter with spirit beings; you may not psychically survive the encounter. Instead, the malevolent spirit will take up residence in your consciousness and (attempt to) control your actions. You become possessed. (The Christian can be oppressed, whereas the Gentile can be possessed.) It is an interesting clinical fact that, even today, most cases of involuntary spirit possession across the world occur overnight. The person wakes up possessed. Traditional cultures have developed ways to identify the demon-possessed people. They are usually self-destructive, they have chronic physical pains & physical distress, they are irreverent toward the cultureís religious rituals, they are restless, & they have recurrent nightmares...
It is a terrifying experience if the possessing (or oppressing) spirit is demonic. [The Lord will not violate our wills. We must give consent, permission for an evil spirit to dwell in us, to oppress us, to possess us. Satan must have permission from both God and us (or our blood relatives) giving him a legal right to harass us, at least on a temporary basis. We can learn the doors we opened to the enemy. We can learn the methods to refuse, reject, and permanently evict the enemy.
RELAPSE PREVENTION or How to Keep Your Healing]
Nightmare frequency is high in childhood and in adolescence & young adulthood.
Young girls tend to experience nightmares more frequently than boys.
In adults, recurrent nightmares occur in people with so-called thin boundaries. These are people who are especially sensitive to sensory impressions. Creative people, like artists, writers, musicians, etc., also report more nightmares than others. A different form of nightmare, heavily influenced by memory, occurs frequently in people who have experienced trauma of one kind or another.
In about 2% of the adult population, nightmares occur frequently. They do not recur in the sense that the same scene is replayed night after night, but they do recur insofar as the individual experiences frequent nightmares. Post-traumatic nightmares, on the other hand, do recur with the same scene, with minor variations, being replayed over and over again...
Various forms of cognitive restructuring of the imagery associated with a nightmare can reduce the distress associated with nightmares. In cognitive restructuring, you take a central image from the nightmare and literally redraw it, on paper or in imagination, so that it is less threatening or frightening. You can also do this with the use of stories. Take the nightmare story and retell it, with less frightening themes & a less frightening outcome.
The traditional" explanation says that "our dreams and nightmares reflect unconscious conflicts & fears. So, examining images & themes of dreams & nightmares can tell us something important about our unconscious fears & conflicts. I doubt that this is true.
Instead, nightmares appear to be about the strength of the ego, or the ďI,Ē the self. It is always the self that is under attack in a nightmare. On the surface it appears that people who suffer frequent nightmares have more fragile egos than the rest of us, but when you look deeper, these people very likely have the strongest egos, or sense of self, on the planet. Nightmare images stay with us for hours or days, haunting our awareness for days. But frequent nightmare sufferers cope with this stuff on a regular basis. They handle the frightening images on a daily basis. They are very strong individuals."
[REMEMBER, some bad dreams are informative &/or warnings. Most bad dreams have NO spiritual relevance. God's Holy Spirit is always the strongest spirit & will immediately come & defend us when we call on Him. Likewise we can in the name of Jesus enlist the help of our guardian angel & warrior angels to do warfare on our behalf. We can anoint our loved ones with the anointing oil. We can anoint their beds, windows, & doors. We can defend ourselves, too, by commanding evil to depart, in the name of Jesus. We can cover ourselves spiritually with the blood of Christ, when we go to bed. We can play holy music throughout the night, to create a holy atmosphere which alienates evil.]
What Are Dreams? good overview December 2009 -

REM sleep also involves proactive/future rather than passive activity & includes creativity/ discovery/inventions/dreams.
Ferrell, Emerson and Anna Mendez - www.voiceofthelight.com - The ministry recommends that the one tormented or those with spiritual authority over them can anoint the (bewitched/haunted so-to-speak) bedroom & bed with the blood of Jesus, pray boldly in tongues, in Jesus' name close all spiritual doors opened at night in dreams, + place an impenetrable (to the enemy) wall of fire around bed & dreams. Ministry recommends cutting all unspiritual soul ties, in Jesus name. Infirmity is a literal black substance that gets into the bones. (After repenting for one's own sins & those of our relatives & ancestors) we need to speak to the infirmity, "Find your way out" (in Jesus name). It will (typically, but NOT necessarily) come out as a black vomit, sneeze, stool or cough.8/5/2010
Good/Holy Night Visions
Dreams from God
Hayes, Norvel - Understanding the Ministry of Visions -
Chapter 4 Recognize and learn from Visions "The ordinary way - the everyday, the most common way - to receive a vision from God is in the nighttime while you're asleep. If you don't know the importance of night visions...you'll run the risk of missing something important from the Lord. Don't miss God. Be open to receive visions (dreams) from Him...You & I call these dreams, but the Lord calls them visions in the night...
See Acts 16:9, Acts 18:9...(Even) if you see something terrible...be open to this being God's way of warning you of what Satan is up to.
You can discern whether visions are from God or the devil...Realize the Lord may be exposing Satan's works to you, SO that you can DO something about them."
Introduction "Unless you respond to something (that alarm bell) in your spirit, the Holy Ghost cannot help you in that particular area."
Chapter 5 Visions Can Impart Knowledge "If you receive a vision with a destructive type of scene, ASK the Lord to show you what to DO to stop that (ominous) vision from becoming reality...He (God) wants the believer to pray about what He shows him, & break the power of the devil...
The devil won't let you know in advance what (evil) he's going to do...He's (the devil is) always trying to sneak up on your blind side."
See Matthew 18:18 "If we're NOT going to BIND up anything on earth, God will have to sit there from the beginning of our life until the end of it and NOT be able to do anything about what happens to us. God does what we do."
(If demons are haunting/terrorizing you in nightmares, command them to go, in the name of Jesus. If Jesus is showing you evil which Satan is planning, then you can DO something to prevent/avert that evil, in the name of Jesus. In the name of Jesus, for beginners, you can refuse, reject, cancel/bind it. You can cover the person or situation with the blood of Jesus. You can enlist holy angels, in the name of Jesus. Jesus works best, & Satan the least/worst, in an ATMOSPHERE of praise and thanksgiving, so immediately begin to worship, regardless of how you feel/think.)
"If a vision helps you or others, it's from God."

Smith, Laura Harris -
Seeing the Voice of God with Laura Harris Smith - Part 1
"Marilyn and Sarah welcome Laura Harris Smith to the program to discuss her book Seeing the Voice of God. We live in a post-verbal society that communicates through images and our Creator longs to communicate with us visually if weíll live with our eyes wide open...God is always speaking, even when He doesnít use words (especially at night during sleep.
Besides body rejuvenation, sleep gives the Trinity extra opportunity to communicate with/mentor us when we are asleep.)"
NIGHT TALK - Sometimes God will talk with us via night thoughts that come to us when we are in bed asleep or half asleep. It is often easier for us to hear and comprehend Him when we are not distracted during the day. So ask Him questions often, EXPECTING Him to reply. Then accept/acknowledge His response & thank Him in the morning.
