Dream About Darkness


John 11:10, ”But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him”.

The Bible has said so much about darkness. Dream about darkness is a mysterious occurrence and its interpretation can be tragic. Jesus described the word darkness as a condition of sorrow and death. However, darkness is a place of the wicked and sinners. To buttress this statement in clear terms, Look at what the Bible says in Proverbs 4:19, ”The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.

Dream Interpretation: Introduction

Dream about darkness is the reflection of spiritual blindness. It represent a situation where a person is in the wilderness of no help. Demons gain more power to operate mostly in the darkest hour. That’s why God is telling us to pray without ceasing. In Biblical setting, darkness means various terms such as death, wickedness, satanic territory, sorrow, pains etc.

No wonder the Bible says,  Psalms 23:4,“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”  That means the Holy Spirit is assuring you that even though you walk in darkness, He is there to guide and protect you.

The symbol of darkness is commonly used by the wicked to attack, destroy and kill people.  Darkness is the presence of fear, pains and ignorance. How small light is, it has the power to silence darkness forever.

For example, if you dream of walking in darkness, this means the attack of wandering spirit has projected confusion into your life. Particularly, you will be stagnated, demoted and failed many times.

The Bible says, Psalm 27:1, ”The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? God is the light and our salvation.

God understands that light and darkness has nothing in common and hence, it should be separated or divided against each other (Genesis 1:14). Meanwhile in Isaiah 59:2 explains to us the reason why the Lord has separated Himself  from people that are secretly practicing sin (darkness).

Dream in view

To dream of darkness indicate another meaning of operating under a closed heaven. You can imagine a Christian who has been praying and fasting to heaven that is permanently closed by territorial powers.

That’s what this dream interpretation is standing to destroy in your life, by swallowing the result of your prayers. Strange things happens in the night (midnight). Because that is the hour where host of darkness are operating. I pray for you right now, may you never pray and fast in vain, in the name of Jesus.

Constant dream of darkness also signify a point where an evil personality is mentioning your names for evil. Our names are very powerful. It sends signal to our spirit very fast. At this stage, this is not the time to know who the person is, but it is very crucial to take a back to sender prayers.

When you pray for the Light of God radiate your life, you will escape or your names will taken out from the book of the wicked.  So whatever your enemies are planning against you then will utterly backfire.

The Bible says something  in Isaiah 9:2, ”The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined”.

The scripture put it this way “In him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” (John 1:4-5). Darkness can never extinguish light. It can never overcome it. Therefore, even in the darkest place, God retains some measure of light.

Some dream actions that are usually taking place in darkness.

  • Dream of eating in darkness
  • Dream of stealing from you in dark.
  • Dream of being tied down in darkness.
  • Dream of seeing a strange person climbing over a house fence in the dream
  • Dream of visiting evil priest in darkness dream.
  • Dream of sweeping the floor in dark season.
  • Unable to come out from the dark.
  • Dream of plucking fruits in the middle of the night.
  • Seeing moons changing it’s direction in the dark.
  • Seeing stars and sun changing it’s form to red in darkness.
  • Feeling of darkness around you.
  • Dream of day suddenly changing to night.
  • Dream of seeing your glory flying in darkness.

What does it really mean to walk in darkness in the dream?

To dream about darkness exposes your life to satanic decree. It is one of the signs that some parts of your life have been spiritually arrested and caged. To walk in darkness in the real life, you will notice there is no direction. So, the same meaning still applies when you see yourself walking in darkness.

Throughout the Scriptures light symbolizes God’s purity, holiness, and glory. To run in darkness is a meaning that show a person is working aimlessly with no gains. This is serious. For example, when you fight with a stranger  in a thick darkness signifies a sign of trouble and death Job 5:12; Proverbs 20:20; Isaiah 9:2) .

Did you know that Jesus was killed and nailed to the cross at night? This was their mission in order to condemn him. But on the third day, the Bible says, he rose up from the dead. Praise the Lord. I pray for you today, any power that is planning to kill you gradually, they shall die in your place in Jesus name.

The spiritual meaning of this dream is a red letter. A red letter is a day of tragedy, calamity and weeping. Furthermore, if you are walking with a person in a dream, this is a warning that a person is trying to take you to a place which your spirit doesn’t agree to. Such person can be a man or woman.

If you choose to follow the person to a place in a waking life, plead the blood of Jesus to protect you. But more often than not, cancelling it will be the best. Walking in darkness can also portend a road accident. If you are planning to travel, it is important you prayerfully ask God if He allows you to commence the journey or not.

It is painful to see your loved ones in darkness. We can safely say that darkness dream also indicate a satanic bondage, slavery and suffering. If you see someone in the dark it shows that a closer person is under satanic torment.

The Bible says in Luke 1:79, ”To give light to them that sit in darkness and [in] the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace”. As of the time you had the dream, if you eventually find out that someone is either sick or in sorrowful then the meaning of this dream is directed to the person in question.

Dreaming that you or your loved ones is lost in dark means the spirit of loss and oppression has been fired into the person.

The spirit of darkness is one demon that swallow ones prosperity and blessing, and however, subject a person to a life of suffering and poverty. To run out from the cage of darkness, you need serious prayers, if not adequately deliverance in Mountain Of Fire.

Groping in the dark means a voice from the grave is unholy attaching the spirit of sorrow and untimely into your life. I had cases of my brethren reporting the dream situation of police and animal pursuing them.

Listen and listen well, if you discovered that a police is pursuing you in the dark, that is a spiritual demon trying to place you in jail. In most cases, the demon make sure you have a serious conflict with someone that will force police to jail you.

Do you experience a strange gunshot in the night? Wait no further my dear, rush down to deliverance. Because it portend a great loss is coming. May that not be your portion in Jesus name. Particularly, if animals are pursuing you in the dream, that’s a very terrible dream. It means stubborn pursuers are planning to cause havoc in your life.

To kill a known person in the dark means that you have committed a big mistake/offence that will put you in serious problems. In a government settings, you have violated the law of the land, and which is a serious offence.

If you kill a strange person out of self defense in a dream, congratulations, that’s a dream of victory.  To experience darkness in a dream can bring some signs of marital problems and sick.

Whenever darkness is strengthening, it then gives the devil the power to operate at will with no obstruction. That’s why you see many people operating in darkness of constant rejection and hatred.

A woman that dream about darkness will have some problems in getting the right man that will ask for her hands in marriage. The essence of this post is let you know that dream of darkness is bad and keeping it in your life can cause several losses. As dedicated Christians, we should remain alert, watchful and vigilant as Bible put it in 1 Peter 4:7-8.

Perhaps, you are keeping a friend whose background you don’t know should form your next prayers of revealing the plans of the person. With prayers, you will surely know the real identity behind the person that you ‘re dealing with.

According to Wikipaedia, ”A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as his or her location and fate are not known”.

Dreaming about a missing person can be so dangerous. If you dream that you cannot find someone in darkness, it shows that the enemy is trying to feed you with the bread sorrow, and transferring problems into your life. It is an evil plan for a person not to find his loved ones in the dream. If you dream that it is your close relatives, stand up and begin to rebuke the spirit of bad news and death in your life and on others.

Dream About Walking In Darkness: Foundation

Psalms 11:3, “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

Bad foundation is another factor  we must look here. If you are coming from a bad foundation where there are perverse wickedness, you are bound to see darkness in your dream. If you have been trying to depart from it and your efforts were not enough, it’s an indication that there are strongman of back to square troubling my star. Dream of walking in darkness shows that you won’t able to see God’s blessing around you.

When this dream is in place, there will be no fulfillment of destiny. Walking in darkness is a complete instance of subscribing to setbacks and regrets unconsciously. Light makes thing clear and chases away the evil spirit. If you are flying in the night dream and suddenly light came in, that’s a meaning of success and direction.

If you dream of falling into darkness, it shows that you have spiritually fallen into the trap set by your enemies.  By falling into the pit, it’s to keep you away from greater opportunity that is ahead of you. There are many today that are in one trap or the other. The works of the enemy is achieved when a person is fallen.

Darkness in a dream can portend a turbulent situation. For example, if you have been experiencing some strange things in your life, it could interpret that you are being attacked by the devil. However, if you see a deep hole and you pass across it, it means a situation of total deliverance from stagnation and poverty. If you are going for deliverance or service, you will be delivered there.

Colossians 1:13-14, ”Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:”

Darkness is a situation where light is absent. You cannot walk in the dark. You cannot see your way out in darkness. You need to understand the fact that light rules the day and night rules the night. There are people that feel useless. The complain of trying many things without success is the reflection that you are in darkness. The introduction of darkness in dream can constitute some meanings such as depression, and weakness.

To some people, dreaming about darkness, spiritually signifies the state of hopelessness. If you discover night and light means he attributes of confusion. Feeling safe in the dark, it means that you are plagued by satanic authority. The strategy of the enemy has not been fully decoded by some Christians.  The devil strike at you when you are in darkness. In addition, if God can open your eyes to see some evil things that flieth in the dark, you will surely open your mouth. You may expect tough battles when your life is exposed to the enemy of your soul.  Walking in  darkness is very bad.

  1. Good morning evangelist, my own is dreaming of darkness but for over 20 years my dream background has been dark. It has always been like late evening.

  2. Goodday
    I always see myself in darkness trying to either switch on the electric light or torch light. Is a recurrent event and each time I embark on a serious prayer programme I will be having serious spiritual attack.

    • Thanks a lot for your support. I really need your help with my dream. After a period of serious prayer and fasting I had a dream about my mother holding a very big Bible and some I read some scriptures which said I’m a blessing to many. Suddenly I show my current boyfriend calling me but someone standing besides me was refusing me to go meet him. And then I woke up from my sleep. I had to pray about it and asked God to reveal to me why my boyfriend was in my dream and I slept off again…. When sleeping I start from where I had stopped in the first dream and I saw my boyfriend at my family home sleeping with another woman in bed and I had to call him so that we can have lunch but we didn’t do so instead we started moving to a place I don’t even know..I saw myself carrying him in the back as the daylight was so bright and suddenly when found a cracked wooden small bridge but the water was black in colour. When moving on the bridge I would feel like I’m going to fall and I was so scared. Afterwards my boyfriend had to hold my hand and carried me on his back and help me cross the bridge but before crossing over I looked back and show someone crying for help since she had fallen in the water i remember we didn’t help her.On crossing over the light vanished and I saw darkness. And the place we crossed over to was like a refugee camp where I saw people yearning for help. I remember asking my boyfriend whether he truly loved me but his response wasn’t appetizing. As I was asking him many questions,I saw a car accident. And afterwards. I looked back from where we had come from and saw a very hug cow running towards us, It by passed me and hit so had my boyfriend in the face and he started telling me that he can see me well anymore. And by the way I was dressed in a black dress and he was dressed in a black trouser and yellow shirt.
      Please help me and enlighten me… I

  3. Need help trying to understand what happening! I dreamed that someone was in my bed behind me moving around. When I turn over to see who it was, I was pulled into darkness. Unable to move or speak, felt completely paralyzed. As if someone had entered/taking over my body. But I continue to mumble rebuking the devil and calling on the name of Jesus. Then it left my body and I woke up.

  4. My phone was stolen my friend in the process of looking for her to collect my phone it was dark but I can see clearly in the dark,so I was runing and walking in the dark looking for her and I pass both bush and swamp but finally I later saw the phone I was looking for in my hand and I woke up and that was when I noticed that I was in the dark
