Dreams can be scary, and they can leave such a permanent mark on us, that even after we are wake up, we have that feeling that something terrible truly happens.
One of those scary dreams is the one where you dream that you are being attacked by someone or something that you can see, or some unidentified “object,” “force,” or something third…
These dreams are so common and versatile that they are joyful looking for their meaning and symbolism.
Now, when you put these dreams and their meaning into the Biblical context, then things become more and more enjoyable.
As we all know, the Bible says that those who do not follow commandments will suffer, and one of the commandments is not to hurt anyone or do him or her any harm.
Also, the Bible says that those who strive to obey all of God’s commandments will face opposition and ridicule. They will be able to survive only in God.
To endure the hardships before them, they must know God’s will as have revealed in His word because they can respect God only when they correctly understand His character, His rule, His intentions, and when they act following that knowledge.
So, here we will see what does this dream about being attacked means in general and also in Biblical symbolism.
The feeling of such dreams is not so comfortable to get rid of.
This kind of dream can have several variants. And what do they mean at all?
Meaning and Symbolism
No one in this world did not have a dream about being attacked in one version on the other; the dream itself could be very intense, it could be even funny or disturbing, but it was certainly something that you have remembered.
Now, in a particular version of a dream where you are being attacked, not recalling too much detail about the dream itself, but you know that you woke with the feeling of dread, and all it seems like a horror story.
And it is fantastic to notice that dreams about being attacked are prevalent, but at the same time, so many of us do not recall too many details of such a dream, but we have that unpleasant feeling in the morning that still accompanies us.
Such dreams generally symbolize fear, anger, and your relationship with yourself. It shows the real core of your being, and in that sense, you can learn a lot about yourself from such dreams.
Now, referring to the aspect of how the Bible sees the attacks in dreams, first of all, it must be said that according to the Holy Book, no one but those who have strengthened their minds with biblical truths will survive the last great conflict. Every soul will be put to the test – will they listen to God more than people?
The decisive moment is at the door. Are our feet determined to rock the unchanging Word of God? Are we ready to stand boldly in defense of God’s commandments and the faith of Jesus?
The Bible encourages people to avoid possible conflicts by
striving for peace daily – what it means when a dispute arises in our dreams; when we are being attacked, and the violence begins with the exchange of angry words.
The Bible says that we must avoid all kinds of conflicts by all means, and in that sense, such dreams of being attacked may suggest that you are hurting someone with your angry words or that someone is hurting you in the same manner. The Bible says that calmness
often alleviates anger and prevents physical conflict. This is the message from God, according to the Bible, to remain calm in those moments.
Dreams where you are being attacked show that you are running away from some reaction to the certain dangerous events that have happened to you in reality.
This is just a reflection of it, and your mind is trying to find ways to deal with such a powerful feeling.
The main thing to do, and the similar message is located in the Holy Book, is that after these dreams, you realize that you will find peace and safety in reality if you find peace in your mind.
Also, such a dream shows that you must deal with specific internal issues that you have been trying to process. It is hard at times, but in the same way, it is necessary to find the answer to this question, or you will never be able to find peace.
In dreams where you are being attacked along with your family is another story- at times, this dream speaks of a self -defense.
Therefore, the Bible shows that a person can defend himself and protect his family in the event of a physical attack. He can repel blows, stop an attacker or even give him an impact to knock him unconscious or hinder him. The goal should be to stop the bully or stop the attack.
Therefore, if he were seriously injured or killed in such a situation, his death was not intentionally caused.
In some cases, as you can see – the protection of the family is necessary and welcomed, of course, if you do not start the attack, if you do not become the cause of it, etc.
Such dreams may come from the feeling that you may be under some danger or want revenge, so you wonder if it is moral to do so…
In another interpretation of such a dream, it comes as a reflection of your fear, and you need to know that there cannot be faith where there is fear.
And trust is the most crucial aspect of anyone’s life. Without it, there cannot be fulfilled or meaningful human life.
Decoding the Biblical Meaning of Being Attacked in a Dream
The last sentence from the previous section is essential to understand the Biblical meaning of a dream a Being attacked.
First of all, one thing must be noted once again – frequently, dream about being attacked comes from real danger, from that something that is out there, in the dark, that is not known or familiar.
Also, these dreams are common because being attacked is a real fear all of us have experienced.
It can happen to anyone. Crime – and even severe crime – is no
longer common only in certain countries or big cities. Fearing crime, many try to protect themselves by buying weapons or learning martial arts.
Some say that we have the right to use means of self-defense to kill an attacker. But what does the Bible say? One Law God gave to ancient Israel helps us understand that. If a thief were caught in the act and killed during the day, the one who killed him would be charged with murder.
This was so because the theft was not punishable by death, and the thief could be recognized and brought to justice.
However, if the intruder were killed at night, the host would be acquitted because he could not see what the burglar was doing and establish his intentions. The host could reasonably conclude that his family was in danger and take action to protect it.
But this is another matter – it is essential to mention that the Bible condemns violence and those who resort to it.
Striving for peace is no guarantee that you will never be attacked. Throughout history, some faithful servants of God have been victims of crime.
The Bible disapproves of the use of weapons to defend one’s property; in some cases, there is a lot of talk about wisdom. The Holy Book states that the wise person will not resist an armed robber who wants to steal her valuables. There is no doubt that life is far more valuable than material things!
The message behind this dream and Advice
We all have these dreams, and we must agree that they are very common, not really pleasant, and even scary.
Dreams in which you are being attacked are most commonly connected to the fear about particular events in real life. You may be avoiding situations and attempting to avoid them.
Also, one thing needs to be put into perspective – it is important the detail in the dream the distance between you and the person who wants to attack you (it does not have to the person, it can be something invisible, some kind of force, etc.). That distance reveals aspects about what burdens on you.
Such a dream can symbolize any difficulty you are attempting to push out of your brain is only more constraining.
If you know that some kind of an animal is attacking you, it is the manifestation of your unconscious front, and they can often express repressed rage. In such a case, your subconsciousness takes all the bad passions and throws them into the “wild” creatures.
In some cases, and it is seen in the Biblical interpretation that such dreams are signs that you are attempting to come closer to the people in your life who you think have left you. If it’s worth it – sometimes there is a dilemma you want to follow or not that kind of life.
If you have experienced this experience in real life, these
dreams may be part of how your mind has coped with this trauma. Otherwise, these dreams can mean that there is a big problem in your life that you are ignoring.
These dreams may be the symbol of a feeling that you are trapped in everyday life. This can represent your job, partner, or another element in your daily life that you no longer dominate with ease. It can also be correlated with rejecting some views in your life.
Such a dream shows that you may feel powerless in certain situations in the waking state. You may have lately undergone significant changes in your life and are still improving.
Not all nightmares about being attacked are bad, and they do not come from the feeling of despair. In some dreams, you may strike back, be strong, and fight. Wrestling in a dream can show your inner confusion, but the enemy you are struggling with can be a problem, an obstruction you want to avoid.
If you want to fight in a dream, it may be a sign that you want
to move forward in life, but so far, you have not succeeded.
And here we come to the most important connection of this dream to the Holy Bible. The matter of faith.
It is the God’s Law and the testimony of truth, and if anyone does not speak like that, there is no dawn for him!” (Isaiah 8:20). Satan uses all means to prevent people from gaining knowledge of the Bible because its clear statements reveal its deceptions.
Satan is the representation of evil (it is the thing that is chasing you) in whatever form it may take during the dream about being attack.
It can be the manifestation of everything rotten, bad, scary, even if it is hidden.
It is said that during dreams of such kind where you are being attacked, the evil intensifies its activity and that in the current moment, right now, in your real life, it is making the last efforts in the final fight against Christ and His followers.
The last great deception will soon take place before our eyes – you are sure that it was just a dream, when in fact, the danger is real. Evil does its miraculous deeds in front of everyone, even in dreams.
The forgery will be so similar to the original that no one will be able, except with the Holy Scriptures’ help, to notice the difference between the two- reality and the dream world.
This is the most important to know – danger may be real, regardless of its appearance in the dream world as a manifestation of reality, or it is the danger. In reality, it is present. You can feel it.
But the fear and the lack of faith do not have to be real – you must be able to deal with them and step into the world where fear rules, where you are scared of the invisible.
Just like in a dream – turn around and look “it” in the eyes, show no fear. You could only do it by having faith inside of you, knowing that fear is not real and that you are protected. If you are able to do it, such dreams will stop or be less regular.
