Spiritual Meaning Of Hellfire Dream


Matthew 7:13-14, ” Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”

Revelation 21:8, ”But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

There are many verses that discuss about hell, for it is not a place where anyone wants to spend eternity. According to Bible (Matthew 25:46), dream about hellfire often indicates a place for eternal punishment for sinners. The spiritual meaning of hell is death and eternal sorrow. It may not necessary suggest that the person will actually die, but the appearance of hellfire too often in your dream shows that you are going to spend your eternity there. This is the time to start making amendment of your life.

Hellfire dream is connected to sin that will write your names in the book of death, sorrow and calamity . This type of dream also reveals that death, tragedy and tribulations are around your destiny. The picture of hell fire dream is telling you that you are no longer save. One of the thing that makes the children of God perish in hell is sin. When deciding on the meaning of this dream, it is important to determine the measure of your relationship with God. Perhaps, you are not satisfy with the level of your spiritual life. Alternatively, the hell is a warning dream.

Matthew 10:28,  “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

Hellfire dreams also represent your fears of being in hell when you depart this world. Maybe your deeds here on earth are against the will of God, so dreaming about hell can provoke God to takes one life quickly (Job 1:21).  Or the dream is trying to warn you to repent from your sins before it is too late to do so. If you see yourself burning in hell, it means your ways are not upright before the Lord. You need to start walking in righteousness, truth and forgiveness. Dragging to hell is a symbol of eternal destruction. This shows there is no mercy or a second chance for you.

If you are having this kind of dreams, where your activities here on earth is unholy before God, you can be sure that the pains and anxiety are going to be atrocious when you wake. Trying to ignore the spiritual meaning of your dream about eternal hell can grip your destiny unaware through sickness and other major incident. It is painful to see lots of great men falling suddenly (2 Samuel 1:27), there is a possibility that some are going to hell, others to heaven. However, if you are a person who doesn’t believe in hell at all, it will surprise you soon. I pray may you not see yourself in hell soon, in the name of Jesus. Because it is a bad place for a true child of God to go.

2 Samuel 22:5-7, “When the waves of death compassed me, the floods of ungodly men made me afraid; The sorrows of hell compassed me about; the snares of death prevented me; In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears.”

Hell dreams also signify darkness and curse. This could be related to the evil thoughts you carry for someone and the degree of your witchcraft and some abominable things you have done. Hellfire is a sign of imminent danger. When you burn in hell, it reminds the dreamer that you only have a short time to spend on earth (physical world). Such a dream about the end of life must be backed up seriously with prayers of mercy and holiness, because when you see yourself or loved ones tormenting in hellfire dream, it is more like a warning for your waking life.

2 Peter 3:7, ”But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.”

Other dream interpretations activities

  • If you dream of seeing heaven and hell,  it is a picture indicating that truly heaven and hell exist. This is telling you to live a good life by doing the works of God,  impact lives and to work upon your spiritual life in order to get a place in heavenly place.
  • If you dream of being pushed to hell, it means your ways are not upright with God.
  • If you dream of struggling to come out from hell, it means there is no second chance for you, a place where God’s mercy is absent. But if you manage to come out, it means the mercy of God has finally come to give you the last chance to make restitution.

Luke 16:24 , ”And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.”

Being in hell or seeing lots of people in hellfire is not a very common dream or not something that individuals often see. Since these warnings come only when something terrible is going to happen, or perhaps, you are finding it difficult to forgive a person’s sin or deciding not to surrender your life to Christ, it is essential for you to flee from all manners of sin (Rom 6:23). While Hell as a place of agony may not be eternal, it is still a very real place, with very real consequences. The book of Revelation shows that Hell, as a place of agony, is a holding area for those who refused God in life, where they remain until the Day of Judgment, when they will be made nothing.

However, If you dream of being in hell wailing and crying, it represents tribulation in your waking life. It shows the spirit of death and hell has gotten hold of you. Alternatively, it tells you that something terrible is on its way and you have to prepare yourself for it. This could be an anger from God or maybe a person who is anointed by the devil is trying to lure or initiate into an unholy activity. It is possible that some marriages are in physical hellfire. That is, a serious problem between the man and woman. God help your children.

Jesus Christ was declaring that death has no power to hold God’s people captive. Its powers are not strong enough to overpower and keep imprisoned the true children of God. The Lord has conquered death (Romans 8:2; Acts 2:24). And because “death no longer is master over Him” (Romans 6:9), it is no longer master over those who belong to Him, in Jesus name. Hellfire is a place that many, even some Christians, refuse to believe, however because the Bible teaches about Hell we must believe it to be real and true, and our dream meaning on hell must stand.

Dream of hellfire symbolizes misfortunes. If you dream that angels threw into the lake of fire, it indicates that you are likely to miss heavens and be subjected to eternal punishment. It also shows that you are already backsliding, having an unstable relationship with Christ Jesus. Hell in dream can be very devastating,  and you need to know the things that are giving you that impression you are going to journey into fire. A dream that involves fire, burning, wailing,  can mean that you are not confident about Jesus to others and often have self-doubts about the power of God and this can negatively affect your closeness to the Holy Spirit.


ESCAPING HELL DREAM – Spiritual Meaning

Escaping hell is a dream of second chance. That means the Lord does not want you to die. Perhaps, you escaped from the lake of fire, for you to continue or fulfill the works of the Holy Spirit.  To dream of standing on a fire escape or someone took you out of lake of fire, is a spiritual warning that your death is not timely. This is a dream telling you to go back to the world and correct some of your mistakes. It is true that some people woke up from death. The mercy of God can speak into a dead body to come alive. There is nothing God cannot do. Sometimes, escaping hell or fire is to prevent yourself from accident, death, and other terrible satanic attacks. If you dream that fire glued your body when you escaped,  it  indicates that you are experiencing some difficulties that are simply out of your control, power and strength.  On the other hand, if you dream that on your attempt to escape the fire, someone raises an alarm that you are not eligible to receive freedom, then know that your enemies are really putting you into serious problems. Another meaning explains that means that you should be careful who you trust as friend, they may destroy your soul and lavish you in hell. If you are keeping some friends that are not adding Godly values into your life, staying a bit far from them is much better. If you see yourself struggling to escape but along the line, you were dragged back, this indicates you are yet to receive salvation. It can also means that you need to change your present church to the one that preaches salvation and holiness.  To see your body burnt in the dream portends divine punishment for your sin committed in the past. During the dream, take note of your surroundings such as the people around you and the location of your dream’s setting.



If you dream of walking on fire means you are protected and nothing can harm you as the mark of Christ is upon your life. When serving, there are rooms for trials and temptation, so this dream indicates your endurance and faith in Christ will be tested to know if you can overcome the present battles. Once you pass the test, you will receive positive news ranging from progress, victory, and testimony. Walking on hellfire also means the risk you may take in regards to serving God in holiness and in spirit. If you see others walking on fire while dream takes place means the spiritual life of others should serve you a lesson that there is a reward in Christ. If you enjoy walking across hellfire means that despite the challenges, you are much stronger and happier. It also indicates that you are truly saved, under the arm of God. Walking on hell is also a power given to you over death and hell. Seeing yourself quenching the hellfire with water, sand, it means you are working on things that cannot yield any profit in your Christian life. Please put to check your fruits and the gifts of the Holy Spirit when such dream happens.  Maybe an unfortunate event has occurred – such as being involved in a fire accident, gas explosion, car accident, gunshot etc. By walking out happily, it means the mercy of God is upon you.  Pay special attention to your daily commitment to God, it could represent transformation and brokenness season. Also remember how you feel at the time of praying.



When you see a known person like pastor, friends, etc whose spiritual lives here on earth were awesome, but dreaming them to be burning in hellfire, signifies that they are not guarantee of heaven. If he is your pastor, it is a sign for you to leave his church if doctrines, or mode o operation are scary or frightened to your Christian faith. If they are your friends, it means to rescue or save them from sudden destruction. Perhaps, you are having some challenges with your prayer life. Seeing known people burning in hell means that they are not going last, including their wealth or career. This dream requires you to pray for them. Saving them from fire, means that you did not want him or her to perish in hell by giving them quality advises or by preaching the gospel of Christ to them. Similarly, dreams of unknown people in the lake of fire, it means you are going to experience serious challenges in your marriage. Because the people that are not known to you, their identity could be hidden spiritually. Failing to evangelize when the need arises, such dreams give you the free access to punishment if care is not taken. This can be a testing dream, especially if you could see someone you know crying in hell and you are the only person who can help at that very point in time. If you are a born again Christian, please understand that dreaming of hell does not mean that a person will die suddenly. Its only a wake up to wake up call for amendment.



A lot of people are operating under the influence of sin. Sin is the spirit that makes a person to die untimely. People under the yoke of sin  are always tormented by the spirit of death, loss, hell and slavery. When a person’s christian life is not transparent with God, the spirit of death finds it easy to move in. This will give rise to many other things like restlessness, confusion, financial bondage, depression, loneliness, hopelessness, suicidal thoughts and grief. So dreams of hell makes people to waste their efforts and render them nothing before God. Nothing they do that will bring everlasting joy to them. The person could be pastor, prophet, evangelists, teacher, apostle, but if he or she does not have a good foundation, such person and ministry is liable to end up in misery and regrets. A person that was meant to save lives from destruction are seen neglecting them because of selfish motives.  If you have been having this type of dreams, leaving in sin is straying away from the presence of God. It will always bring sorrow and end to your works. May that not be our portion, in Jesus name.



To dream that you are preaching God’s message in heaven or hell means you are fulfilling the gospel of Christ by preaching to unsaved people. You may feel happy now because the works of God that you are doing will really make a good way for your salvation and restoration. An area of your life may be getting out of hand but with God things are possible if don’t compromise your faith and belief. You may be experiencing a major struggle or overwhelming problem. A fear of losing everything, going under, or of appearing as a total failure. You may have a call to do the work of God but it seems there is no one to help you.  Hell dreams may also be a warning signal for you to preach the revelation about hell or salvation to millions of people. It may also reflect a situation in waking life that you are battling with an attack of prayerlesness or lack of zeal to read the Bible. On the other hand, as a born again Christian, and you are afraid while finding yourself in hell it may symbolize a lack of seriousness, finding it difficult to deal with one areas of bad attitude that is preventing heavens to reach out to you in mercy and forgiveness.



Matthew 5:2, ‘‘ But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.”

Many people are afraid to die, afraid to preach the gospel of endtime, but not many are really doing what God asked them to do. Many does not even believe that they will die one day, hence they believe they will go to heaven straightaway. How ridiculous it may sound. The influx of churches going against the Bible standard will have their way of being judged by God. Whatever it is written in the Bible cannot be killed or put aside. Many people are in Hell right now gnashing their teeth saying, “had I known, death took me unaware, I didn’t prepare for this!” Sadly, many have been kicking against the preaching of hell as false. The general impression of  people is that hell is not real is becoming a strong controversy. For example, when a person dream about hell occasionally, that also tells you that this thing exist. God brought dream, vision and revelation for we to decode the language of the spirit. God will not have to be blamed when judgement comes, because he will tell you that these things have been revealed to you.



Take this prayer: O Lord, save me at the last day, in Jesus name. If you dream of burning to death, there is no any other meaning that a signal of perishing. It shows that things will get so worst for you. It can also mean that God is no longer in control of you or has departed from you because of your wickedness or sin. It means a sharp loss of faith and prayer life. You may get tired serving God when tribulation increases. If you are a man or woman and you experience frustration or one unusual bad news know that something has gone out of you. Similarly, seeing yourself or others burning in hell could symbolize that the wicked are planning to destroy. Do you have a feeling of being attacked by the devil right now? if your answer is yes, you may need to go for deliverance.



If the hell is within your dream was unpleasant in any way, then this is a gentle warning that you are likely to be attacked by demonic powers, and this will destroy your hope, and faith. . If you are a woman and you dream of your husband crying in hell then it shows your husband is under a serious attack and if urgent steps are not taking, he may loss many things he had, including his dear life. If you are a man and you saw your wife and children being taking round hell, then this is a s warning that your wife may take you to early grave.  If you dream you see the angel refusing to let you into heaven, it means your sinful lifestyle has actually denied your access to heaven. This may affect you psychologically, thereby crippling some of your life activities.

Please repent now, tomorrow may be too late. if you dream that you are naked, crying, often pertain to great disappointments. You may have neglected the call to serve God which would negatively affect your authority as a child of God. This is especially true if you are not even a born again or a church goer person.  This dream can serve you as an opportunity to flee away from sin and avoid any unproductive lifestyle. On the other hand, if your properties are burning in hell, then this is associated with  wasted efforts and bad luck for your marital and career prospects. You could experience disappointments and failures at work or whatever project you may be working on. Therefore, if you have never at the opportunity to surrender your life to Christ or rededicate it to Jesus, then the dream of hell will be a scary or frighten demonstration to you.

Dreaming of being left behind where others are taken to heaven and you are alone is a reflection of feeling abandoned, cursed, and denied. Consider ways that your hypocrisy have left you behind in your life and if this dream happens when you have denied or betrayed Christ then you are in troubles.  A person who always encounter the revelation of hell is a pointer that the dreamer will suffer recognition from heaven. Until he makes amendment, things will continue to be the same To be more specific, the punishment or consequences of your sins will likely result God to remove his eyes from you.  In addition to your shortcomings, there may also be extraneous factors that are preventing you from achieving your dreams. Perhaps the enemy would wreak havoc to your plans or some unexpected situation would distract you from making heaven. I pray, you will make heaven at last, in Jesus name.

Hell fire dream often represents darkness, stagnation, eternal punishment. So finding yourself or loved ones in hell means you have lost your salvation. It also suggests that your present service to God are not good enough to compel the Holy Spirit to intervene in some of your situations. Most likely, you have not searched inside of yourself or found the true source of your predicaments. The dream is asking you to address any issues you are having with God rather than going round the bush. If you could see somebody else wrath in hell, you may need to look at who this person is, was this person someone you know? or a stranger? If you were unsure who the person was, then it was probably a sign of untimely death and tragedy.  If it was a friend was crying for help in your dream then someone close to you is struggling and you are wishing you could help. If it was an enemy, you are seeking to ignore the person for his wickedness. If you were able to rescue the person from hell, it is a very positive sign, even if the person was a stranger. That means your lifestyle is advertising Jesus. Think about all of the sins you have committed and all of the things you have done wrong. Don’t ignore the little sin things cheating, disobedient, pride, anger or stealing: all sins are equal in God’s eyes. Sometimes writing your sins down and reminding God about them can be helpful.



  1. Surrender your life to Jesus Christ and make Him the Lord of your life. Be transparent and honest when rededicate your spiritual life to Him.
  2. Take time to pray for the mistakes of your past and ask Him to give you the ability to correct them.
  3. Repent from your sins, confess them to the Lord, name them one by one and ask Him to forgive you and cleanse you from all unrighteousness.
  4. Claim the redemptive power in the blood of Jesus that was shed on the cross at Calvary for the remission of your sins.
  5. Restrengthening your spiritual life. Ask Him to revive your prayer life, your interest for God’s word and the spirit of evangelism.
  6. If you have a Divine call and you have since neglected it because of one thing or the other. Please ask Him to bring back the power of the call again and ask for the grace to fulfill it.
  7. If your marriage is sending a bad signal to you already that it will lead you to hell. Please rush down to see a deliverance pastor or go for corporate deliverance.
  8. Ask for the blood of Jesus to wash away all properties of sin in your life.
  9. Even those who think they are going to heaven ended up going to the Broadway to hell. Remind God again that at the last day, you will never be found wanting.
  10. If friends are the ones that may want to put you into eternal punishment, please disassociate yourself from them. Failure to act fast, the judgement of God may catch you unaware.
