12 Powerful Spiritual Warfare Tips + 58 Bible Verses!

Please share with others!

I had a spiritual warfare dream many years ago that God would take me to “Babylon” and no one would be able to come with me, no one the dream warned twice. In Christianity, Babylon symbolizes worldliness and evil. The dream deeply confused and scared me.

However, now I fully understand the dream. God meant to take me on a journey to see the wickedness in the world and how he plans to deal with it. God was taking me on a journey to understand the meaning of warfare. He started showing me how the enemy uses situations, people, our own mind, and other simple things to accomplish evil plans.

In the past couple of years, I have had many dreams about demonic forces trying to capture saints. In one instance, my body was vibrating like an alarm as God woke me up from a dream which encouraged me to pray for a friend. The dream showed me someone that was spiritually blind and didn’t see me or God’s love correctly. In other instances, the dreams would come true. For instance, I had a dream that I was close to God and a man with a demonic spirit bumped into me. When he bumped into me he accused and judged me for my clothing. It made made me focus on my clothing more than God in the dream.

In real life, this actually happened. I was at a church conference on a hot day. I had on a spaghetti strap jumper and a jacket over it. It got so hot, I tied the jacket around my waist. A christian man, that didn’t support the conference, on a loud speaker was waiting outside of the stadium. He blasted me for my clothing and questioned my Christianity. I was so ashamed of myself that it nearly ruined my entire experience at the concert and what God was doing in my heart. I felt like I was far from God and disappointed him. Until, I remembered the dream. I was able to snap out of it.

Then, at the concert I got this amazing prophetic word from a visitor. But, the guy on the loud speaker started to move near my section and continued speaking from a place of judgement which drifted my focus. A man started to manifest a demon and foam at the mouth.Then a women ran to anoint my head to ensure that the person that prophesied over me didn’t transfer a spirit to me. I was so shocked by everything, I started to lose focus again because I was noticing what Satan was doing. Finally, I decided to move very far from this activity and dive deeper into prayer for the atmosphere and God’s heart for me.

In addition to this, I have had moments when I’ve felt wronged by people. God even showed me their ill-intentions in dreams. I would get mad and judge them. I thought I had a right to be mad. Then, God would give me a dream showing me their childhood and why they behave the way they do. In one dream he said, “You didn’t grow up needing to change to be loved.” I realized, God still wanted to bring that person to a place of growth and I should love them in the process.

This process has taught me so much. God showed me how Satan uses people’s pain and insecurities to attack them and attack other people. Yet, God asked me to pray and love them into his resurrection power.

In fact, my sister had a dream about a demonic presence trying to attack our family with drama, gossip, and slander. At first we didn’t know how to interpret the dream (that’s why it’s important to write all your dreams down). But, when the situation happened I suggested we kill the people with kindness. Long story short, she remembered someone gave her a jar of honey in the dream and she didn’t know what to do with it. However, as she approached the demon with honey it left. It was confirmed that the real life situation should be handled with kindness. We did just that and the potential drama was squashed.

There are other situations where the enemy has sent men my way to fulfill my insecurities – loneliness or not feeling beautiful. I would of walked right into the trap because I wanted to feel loved and I believed all christians were safe. Thankfully, I had spiritual discernment dreams warning me about their character or the potential to sleep with these “christian” men who had their own insecurities that needed to be healed.

All of these situation taught me a few elements found in spiritual warfare and understanding demonic warfare bible verses. Use the Bible verses about fighting battles with God’s peace to defeat the enemy in your life and the ones you love. Also create spiritual warfare prayers by using these scriptures to declare what God has promised to His children in the bible.
