Dream about knife

Dream About Knife

Judges 19:29,“And when he was come into his house, he took a knife, and laid hold on his concubine, and divided her, together with her bones, into twelve pieces, and sent her into all the coasts of Israel.”

Luke 11:21-23, “When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.”


What does knife mean in the dream?

Dream about knife can have lots of spiritual meanings depending on what is going on in your life. It  is one of the common dreams among many people. If you come across it in your dream, it means death, division, sacrifice, etc. A dream where you see a person pursuing you with a knife, it can mean that you are under the control of witchcraft power. Maybe the enemy is trying to silence your destiny because you are moving to your next level. This type of dream can also indicate the presence of strange people to harm you or someone close to you. Make sure pray for divine protection upon you and loved ones instead of taking the dream for granted.

The appearance of knife in your dream is a bad signal of tragedy. For example, when you dream of someone holding knife, the sign stand as a threat to human existence.  A knife is use for cutting and even use as a weapon. Dagger dream usually happen when you have enemies after your life. To dream that you are carrying a knife signifies anger, aggression and/or separation. If you are dreaming about knife in your car, it means the enemy is about to set you for destruction. If this is true that you have a car in waking life, you may not go out with the car until the spirit of God directed you.

Knives also have strong symbolism in dreams. For instance, a dream of knife may symbolize a feeling that you have experienced an injustice and fear in your dealings with people. The dream is instructing you to resist such a wrong and fight back. This is perhaps the most worrisome dream interpretations, as knives can be used as a weapon if someone is attacking you. However, it can also refer to an internal dispute that you may be having.

Using a knife to injure a known or unknown person in the dream indicate a big problem. Sorrow, bad news, hopelessness, murder, fatal accident, take a toll on your emotion and make your mind restless. The dream of using knife to stab a person behind or on the chest makes you vulnerable and push you towards influences and actions that can lead you to commit crime with a person either through fighting and curses in a violent way.

This type of dream case is a big warning that a violent spirit has taking over you and or  a sign that the devil is really using you to destroy things. If you are a man or woman reading this message and you feel that you have anger and resentment spirit, the devil might want to use it against you. Be vigilant and control your temper.

Knife dream is a negative meaning that mean many different things in many different situations. For example, a  dream where the dreamer is looking for a knife to cut off a snake head, dog head etc means such a person has lost his instrument of spiritual war. It shows that he doesn’t have the power to confront and overcome his enemies. This is also an indication that losing a precious things in your life.

1 Samuel 22:23,  “Abide thou with me, fear not: for he that seeketh my life seeketh thy life: but with me thou shalt be in safeguard.”

Leviticus 20:6,
“And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.”

Dream about murdering someone with a knife

If you are murdering someone with a knife in the dream means a fight with someone. It could also tells you that you have killed a person in the dream. Stabbing a person with a knife in a dream is associated with police. If the person dies, this could mean that you are going to involve yourself in a police case in your waking life. The same dream could indicate that you have the spirit of anger and unforgiveness in you . If you are about to deal with a person in your waking life, then you might have this type of dream of trying to stab someone with a knife. At the same time, this kind of murdering someone in a dream might also mean that the devil is about to use you negatively someone against someone. When you have a dream where the person is trying to stab you, then it might just mean that you have some enemies who has in mind to amputate your destiny. Please, pray very well to cancel the plans of the enemy to put to troubles.

Dream about blood on the knife

If you dream about blood on the knife, this is a life threatening attack. It means some unfortunate events is trying to locate you. The blood on the knife is a big sign of trouble, tragedy, fear, lack of control. It is possible having this type of dream shows evil is near at your door. Think about why you are losing your confident, faith towards your situation. If you are a woman, and you dream of blood on the knife, it indicates the agenda of enemy to destroy you. If you are pregnant, then you need to pray against miscarriage. But if you are a man and you see blood on the knife then it symbolizes someone is about to kill you. That’s a big sign on the wall. Maybe you normally goes to work at early in the morning. Or perhaps you normally walk alone in a lonely environment. This dream tells you to be alert. On the other hand, if this dream leaves you with fear of the unknown, it is very important to pray for God to cast out the fear and protect you.

Spiritual Meaning Of Knives In  A Dream

Dream about knives are usually scary and alarming. There are times when a knife represent a good meaning. For example, when a person is pursuing you with knife in a dream, but all of a sudden you threw a knife on his chest and died, that’s a good sign of victory over your stubborn enemies.

However,  According to Bible passage (Genesis 22:6-10), it made us to understand that knife is also a weapon for  killing, division and sacrifice. The correct rendering of this word is murder, and the Bible says, thou shall not kill. It is true that the spiritual symbol of knife is to attack and injure people with mysterious wounds on the body. If you are stabbed with a knife in the dream, it means the devil has destroyed your destiny. Recovery prayers should be the next deliverance prayers.

When you wake up feeling bad then it shows that they have killed you spiritually. The moment you fail to address this dream quickly with deliverance prayers and fasting, you will be disconnected from the source of your divine blessings. If you are a pregnant woman and dreamed where a person or faceless creature stabbed at you or your womb, it is a sign of miscarriage and difficulty in child delivery. Pray that you should not die during conception or child delivery. Because the appearance of knife to a pregnant woman is fear and death.

Reasons Why Your Enemies Are Attacking You With Knife.

  1. It is because you have a glorious star.
  2. It is because God has set you free from their territory.
  3. It is because you have the light of God upon your life.
  4. It is because you are getting closer to your breakthrough.
  5. It is because the keys of glory have been given back to you.
  6. It is because heaven has announced your wedding date.
  7. It is because you are doing more better than them.

Lev 20:27, ”A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.”

The biblical dream meaning of knife is the evidence of the enemies trying to use any means to harm you and strangulate your destiny. Knife is dangerous especially when an armed robbery is using it as a means of weapon. Similarly, dreams which involve armed robbers with daggers often represent a threat of killing. If you know one of the robbers is familiar to you then you have to remove some bad people from your life. Perhaps, such person is your family member, try as much as possible to ex-communicate the person till your spirit ask you to relate with him.

Dreams are the one place where you can safely kill people who bother you. If you dream of killing a person with a knife in self defense, fear not, you are not killing or harming anyone in real life. It means you are defending some curses or strange occurrence from attacking you. Do you know that correcting people’s insult against you is a self self-defense? However, this type of dream is trying to tell you that your glory is attracting envious or jealous people who are willing to suffocate your destiny through enchantments, curses, arrows, etc.

When such experience appears too often in your dream then it means you are no longer safe, a quick action to change your environment for sometimes until your spirit is relatively calm from within.

If you stabbed a person in the dream on the attempt of self-defense, it means the following…

Protection, victory, gaining control over your enemies etc

Dreams of self defense is an act of protecting yourself from demonic attack that fliet in the day and the pestilence that walketh in darkness. Meanwhile, if you also dream of another person killing you in self defense can mean you’re being attacked because of your violet behaviour, perceived anger and attempt of murder. If you kill anyone with dagger or knife, it will be on record that you have spiritually killed or murdered a soul, which can be translated to real life. Please prayerful. This is a set up from your enemies to put you in cage or label a false claim against you.

A dream where people are fighting with knives could be dangerous. If you dream of fighting with knife on your hand, it means you are dealing with your unfriendly friends (enemies). This means you are trying to terminate a relationship between you and bad people around you.

Are you in a painful relationship with a person that often takes away your peace and joy? Then this particular dream  meaning is bringing a division between you people. However, if you are a married woman and you are fighting your husband with a knife, it means Jezebel spirit is projecting your attitude as a means to kill your marriage and frustrate the hope of your husband.

A woman may experience fear when she sees her little child with knife. There will be strange shock and fear in her. Obviously, the first thought that could be running her mind is, ”my baby is playing with knife. My baby wants to injure himself or herself.” But if you look at it spiritually, you will know that appearance of knife to a woman is a spirit of depression, fear, anxiety, hopelessness, emotional imbalance, sickness etc.

The spiritual meaning of killing an hen, fowl, or chicken with a knife is a warning sign that you are terminating a soul. Hen has soul and blood, and this makes them to exist. Once this dream occur, it means that some powers have exchanged the destiny of a known person into a fowl in the dream. And the moment you kill such fowl, it is either the dreamer has terminated her baby from the womb, or killing a person, or a sign that the blood of the innocent is upon you. Another meaning, howoever, is a loss of divine mercy. We can kill animals in real life, but when it comes to dream, you have to put on the eyes of the spirit (Exodus 20:13)

Dreaming of holding a  knife indicates a situation that you are ready to kill whoever that crosses your path.  If this is the case in your waking life, your conscience is telling you that your attitude is destroying your reputations and dignity.

Sometimes, it is not necessary influenced by devil, but your uncontrollable behaviour towards your social interaction with others. A certain amount of anger is an unhealthy attempt to cause uproar. I have had this dream of stabbing group of people with knife in most recent times, because the evil effects then was, sickness, loss of money, a group of friends were staying away from me, until I conquer it. Yours could be the above symptoms mentioned.

Strange feelings you may encountered during the dream of knife, knives, daggar

Fear, unstable, anxiety, depression, weakness in the body, etc

To dream of a knife beside your bed represents a danger, blood sucking spirit, and possible a threat of death. When it comes to seeing knife in a dream, the emotions involved are normally fear, anxiety and confusion. At the root of this dream is a sense of being manipulated at the witchcraft altar for sacrifice. If you are not married and you often see knife on the bed, it means the spirit of satanic oppression is troubling your peace.

However, if you are married, it therefore indicate a stranger is trying to cause division between you and your husband. Check if your husband is keeping a date with another woman, if yes then you need to cast out the spirit of strange woman using divination and enchantment against your marriage. Many things are happening these days that are not too clear to us.

When you see knife in your child’s hand in the dream, it portend a bad omen. It means the enemy is trying or planning to use such child to cause troubles. For example, a knife in the hand of your son means a spirit of violent and stubbornness are possessing his life and destiny. Do that child threatened people with knife? If yes, take such child to a pastor for quick deliverance from the spirit of vagabond. According to some school of thoughts, watching a knife get in your child’s body dream means that child’s destiny has been killed and sacrificed through oath.

In some cases, a dream of a knife in the body of a person can also symbolize the feelings of calamity. In a dream about gang of armed robbers, the feelings may be insecurity and dangerous attacks. You may feel frightened when you wake up from this dream. But with prayers, you will surely be protected from evil forces.

When you dream that you are running away from someone who is trying to stab you to death, it shows the kind of wicked powers trying to kill you at the edge of your breakthrough. Your dream show that you are trying to progress and accomplish financial success but the powers are saying NO to it. It shows that your enemies are contending with you in battle with the weapon of war.

Even though you might not have weapon to fight, as long as you shout the blood of Jesus, you have disarmed them. If you know the person then such person might be dangerous, or he might just be someone who is trying to make your life difficult. The best way to overcome this dream is by soaking yourself with the blood of Jesus. Let the name of Jesus be frequent in your dealings with strangers. After this dream, please don’t always keep late at night or moving alone in a dark or silent environment. This is a warning!!! Pray that you should not fall into evil.

INSTRUCTION: Embark on 3 days fasting and prayers with midnight prayers between 12am to 1am. Take the following Bible verses: Gal 5:1, 2 Tim 4:18, Rom 6:14, Deut 3;22, Col 1;13-14, Luke 10:19, Eph 6:12-13.
