Biblical Meaning Of Crying In The Dream


Dream about crying indicates a negative meaning. But in the word of God, it stand as a voice! In other ways, It portends a strong emotional feelings such as unhappiness and pains. Tears helps to know the state of a person. It is an expression of the mind.

The Bible says in Psalm 30:5, weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. There is a divne cry that covers the tears of sorrow and mourning. This is a joyful cry the Bible is expressing to the dreamer.

In Revelation 21:1, The Bible says, And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. This means there is a tears of sorrow and there is a cry of joy.



When it comes to crying, it can come very easy to some people. Whether it is because they are happy or sad about something. Most people cry in the dream when there is a strong signal of bad luck. But as the children of God, we are created with the ability to cry for joy in appreciation to God.

In the Bible, most people takes the important of crying as a medium of expressing themselves to God.  In Psalm 34:17 says, The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.”

A dream about crying means tragedy, sorrow and mourning. The ability of crying uncontrollably in the dream means the enemy is attacking you with the bread of sorrow. For example, a person who is crying for a dead people in the dream should prepare for a bad sign of bad luck.

This is a dream where the enemy is inviting a strong attack into your life. Sometimes, a cry has no power but the spirit behind the tears. For you to cry persistently in the dream, it means something bad is about to take place. It could be from you or any members of your family as the case maybe.

There are people out there who see tears as a sign of weakness. Others sees it as a means of expression. But in the Bible you read many stories of the strongest people of faith crying out to God when things are not going well.

The Bible says in (Psalm 34:15) “The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry” To cry during prayers is an improved spirit.

Crying is part of human existence but in the dream, it is not. From this statement, there is a slight difference between the two. It is possible for a person to cry in the physical because of pains, worries, and as a result of answered prayers.

But a person can cry in the dream and be attributed as a spiritual attack.  For example, when a child beats a child, the next thing for the child to start crying. Why? Because the force which the mother used to beat her child infiltrate pain in her body.

As long as a person is crying in the dream, he or she cannot see the light of God. To cry in the dream, it means to fall in the pit which the enemy has dug for you (Proverbs 26:27). To cry in the dream means the greater part of your life has turned to sorrow. To cry in pain in the dream, it means happiness, laughter, joy has disappeared but replace with grief and sorrow

It is easy to cry in the dream but it is hard to neutralize the negative meaning of such a dream.  To dream about crying, it means a person has lost important things in life ranging from people and material things. The Bible meaning of crying can implies tears, weeping or even sorrow.

There is something the above bible verses have proved to us. It has shown that our tears, cry is a strong spirit that gets the attention of God very faster when done with the ability of prayers. Crying has become an instrument of answering prayers.

It is a divine gift which the devil cannot withstand. Since the day  God remove the status of the Lucifer as an angel and sent from heaven back to the world, that has been the day  tribulation, sorrow and mourning have started.

Just as a person doesn’t feel tears immediately after stepping on sharp object, you will not feel pain or cry until the sorrow sinks in.

When we cry in the dream, we give opportunities for the enemy to attack us, and when there is a high occurrence of tears, we begin to fear. The Bible says in 2 Timothy 1:7, ”For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

“Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh” (Luke 6:21).

To dream of crying  represent the symbol of loss, disappointment and bondage. The arrow of spiritual crying is a spirit of poverty. This is when a person is about to experience failure and backwardness. Until you stop crying in the dream, the joy of the Lord will never manifest.  This is your season of laughter, any attempt of the devil to make you cry or mourn others is hereby cancelled in Jesus name.

Crying comes easy for some people. They cry when they are happy or sad. While some of us only cry when we are deeply moved. We are created with the ability to cry not only as an expression for our emotions, but also as an opportunity to release pent up feelings.

However God takes special notice of those that cry. A tear that drops from a person’s face can facilitate the quick action of the Almighty God. And God never forget those holy tears (Psalm 56:8).

1 Corinthians 10:13, ‘‘There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”

You can stop all negative situation activating tears of sorrow in your life through prayers and fasting. You need to break and destroy every curse of untimely death. It is very crucial to go for deliverance if there is an occurrence factor of negative tears in your dream. Once it is too much, it means death is coming and calls for your immediate action to cancel before it catch up with you or any members of your family.


  • Tears of joy in the dream. This is the kind of happiness that makes a person to burst out in tears. When a person has been waiting for a particular and God choose to answer his prayers, he or she will shed tears of joy to appreciate the God that never rest over his case. All those who are in this category shares their testimonies to the brethren. (Psalm 126:5). The tears is so good to shame the devil and prove to them that you are serving the living God. Encountering tears of joy in the dream is also a sign that God has not forgotten you.
  • Tears of sorrow in the dream. A tears of sorrow in the dream brings pains and worries. In 2 Samuel 19:1-7, David wept over the death of His son turned enemy Absalom, so bitterly, that the men who fought so bravely to protect him from the armies of the same Absalom, were totally discouraged. David did not show adequate gratitude to them for risking their lives to ensure his safety and protect his throne. One of the signs of crying out of frustration, regret is when there is a record of death, mourning, accident, sickness, and others are noticed when a person is mad, etc. All these symptoms constitute a tears of sorrow. In Isaiah 25:8, ”He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.”
