Dream of falling may not be too frequent but they are dreams of failure and downfall.  From the spiritual perspectives, this type of dream is scary to send a wrong signal to the dreamer. However, it can also come as a warning of an impeding danger.

If the Bible can recognize falling as a negative meaning then we can safely say that this dream is enough to hinder ones dream. This should be a strong indication that the dreamer will lose control, focus and determination through fear.

It is particularly true that without our legs, there will be no falling.  This means that if a man can fall many times the the hope of fulfilling his destiny will be difficult. With this, Join me (Evangelist Joshua) together with the Holy Spirit as we get down to the root of this spiritual problem affecting millions of people.

In some falling dreams, you may feel like you are starting to lose your relevance. This can be terrifying because you do not know if you would survive your present challenges, and it is hard to tell if your falling is much connected to your sinful ways.

When this dream occurs frequently, it means that you are facing touch situations without the help of person. Everyone needs love and care when we are so much depressed, hopeless, and demotivated, but in this dream case, it is a dream of darkness.

Falling down in dream is a traumatic experience for anyone, but especially a child of God. It sounds like your current life experience frightened you so profoundly that it’s still getting you off balance. In the above verses, the Lord has assured us that there is hope for those that fall several times, that they will rise again.

Dreams of this nature have a tendency of creating fear of taking decision, fear of being unmarried, fear of having no money fear of losing a job, fear of suffering, fear of barrenness, fear of sin etc.  A change of lifestyle that is getting you into troubles.

James 1:12, Blessed [is] the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

A person that can no longer endure challenges will begin to fall. This is where the devil will start to perform various attacks on the person. You may be trying to wait patiently unto God for your requests but when it seems there is no positive sign of response from heaven, there is going to be gradual backsliding.


The sensation of falling into a pit while in a dream can be attributed to satanic bondage and captivity. Often, spiritual falling is experienced at a time when you are blinded spiritually and a way of operating on a curse. At this time, problems seems to get complicated everyday. The reason can traced to foundational issues. Biblically, however dream can indicate several definition.

Firstly, the Bible says in Psalm 27:2, When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. And secondly he says, Romans 5:12, ”Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:”

The Bible clearly told us that any enemy that came to eat you up unaware, to attack you, to conclude their evil assignments shall all stumble and fall. However, this is an assurance of divine victory over our enemies.

To dream of falling into a pit means you are on a journey to spiritual slavery and captivity. Though you might be walking around in the physical free, but spiritually you have been sold out by the enemies.

Pit is a portion of darkness that hides and delays a person’s glory from being fulfilled. Remember the story of Joseph, he was envy and hated by his own household.

By that description, we can also say that a person can fall as a result of some attacks  he received within his household. There is always limitation when this dream is in place.

This type of dream can indicate a sense of failure at the edge of breakthrough disappointments, stagnation or a feeling of hardship.

It can also mean that you are experiencing difficulty in making headway in life. Another meaning could be that you are taking some wrong steps, or taking decision against the will of God.

Frequent dreams of falling can be taken as unfortunate thing trying to manifest – perhaps that the enemy is plotting for your downfall or that there is a witchcraft prayer targeted at you. You don’t need to ignore this meaning. Try to cancel it through prayers.

If these dreams are recurring, you need to take prayer of inquiry to know what’s going in your life that you might need to address immediately or if the person that offended you was the one actually influencing this dream attack.

Biblical Meaning Of Falling – Dream About Falling

It is common in the world to see people falling down from grace to grass.  People that are once rich, only to see themselves begging. People that are financial shakers! To see them with nothing, it is an act of wickedness. The Bible says Jeremiah 17:9 , ”The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”

Genesis 3 introduces us to another point of the fall of man: the serpent. Satan had already been cast down to earth due to his rebellion against God in heaven (Luke 10:18). Satan came to Eve as a serpent and suggested to the woman that God had not really forbidden the fruit for her good but was rather keeping good from her (Genesis 3:1–4). So she ate it and gave some to Adam (Genesis 3:5).

Adam also ate it, and in that moment everything changed. Sin had entered into God’s perfect world (Romans 5:12). Mankind had fallen.

Dream About Falling From A Building

Fear is another point that a person can fall from a building. It may be a source of warning to flee from certain people or situation in your life, or be a warning of imminent danger to you or to someone closer to you.

Dreams of falling from a building or roof can often be associated with a sign of demonic attacks against your life. This shows that your enemies are after your life. For example, if you jump out from a building to the ground alive then the dream means that you are covered by God’s mercy ad protection.

Eventually, if you die from the fall then it means an arrow of untimely death and terrible health issues. These dreams can also be recurring, at least until the issues they are related to get resolved.

If you have been weak, ill or surrounded by people that don’t have good heart for you, falling in a dream may indicate hinderance to succeed, prosper and marry.

If your dreams are where people pushed off from a building, it indicates an attack from envious and jealous enemies of progress. For example, it can be your family members, partner, relatives friends, neighbours, etc. However, these people could be trying to frustrate you.

Biblical meaning of falling down from a ladder: Spiritual Dream

Isaiah 41:13, ”For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.”

Dreams are tools you can use to resolve issues in your reality or those powers that are continue to hunt you.

  1. Hello Evangelist, I had a dream I was with a fellow church member, a male and he was walking with his son(about 6years old). we were walking on a staircase going up a building, and the staircase was vandalised by rioting community members, he was ahead of me with his son and i followed him, soon as he reached the top, i could feel the staircase shaking and i asked him not to go any further and that we must return bacj before it breaks, his son took one more step forward and we fell, but i held on and i do not remember where he ended up. I found alternative way to go up the building(it was a school) then i found another staircase and climbed up, the build was in a U-shape |_|. so i manahed to go up and as i was running to class, i met alot of people outside, i was running and looking for my class, i saw some red apples, some small and some big, i wanted to grab one but was late for class, i found the class and through the window i saw an elder from my church and she smiled at me and said i mist come in, i went in and was happy and the people were happy to see me, as i was walking i started to lose my sight,dream ended. God bless you
