Hearing Knocking Many Times

Revelation 3:20
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Deuteronomy 28:7
The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.

Have you ever heard a knocking sound at your door? But no one was there when you open it? Hearing knocking for 2 times, 3 times, 4 times and even 5 times can be so worrisome and scary. Is it a good sign or bad sign?

Does it usually mean that a spirit is trying to get access into your house to attack you? All of these and many more will be addressed in the Biblical angles. In Rev 3:20, the Bible says, behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, then I will come in to him and will dine with him and he will be with me.

Why constant hearing of knocking at my door in the dream or reality?

When you hear someone knocking at your door, it could mean different things to many people. Depending on superstitions and beliefs.  The knocking could mean the Holy Spirit is at the door knocking. It could also mean ghost or strange spirit is at your door knocking and then waiting for you to open it. When you hear a knock in the dream or reality and you are afraid, don’t open it. Then start to rebuke it.

But if you feel calm while you open the door and find no one there, then it may mean that you have allowed the spirit of God to visit your home. This sign can also symbolize good news and divine intervention. But when you feel bad after opening the door, then it can be a sign of demonic attacks to come.

It’s clear that you have opened the door for the enemy to torment you. The knocking of your doors many times can be telling you that evil is approaching. However, some people say if demons or the Holy Spirit wants to enter your house, they will seek for your permission first whether to open the door or not.

There are many cases of people who heard someone knocking at their door at the hours of the night. Let’s say by 12am, 1am and 3am and when they would open the door, they will become paralyzed. They will lose their virtues. They will begin to experience battles and strange attacks in their body. And while some other people shared their experiences of them receiving the arrows of sickness, bad news and while some will die.

The Spiritual Meaning and Symbolism

Brethren, I want to let you know that this world lieth in wickedness. When you hear someone knocking your door many times without saying a word, whether in your dream or reality, please do not open it. Who knows, it can be a warning that troube is waiting for you at the doorpost. That’s why  it’s always good to anoint every path of your house including your door before you sleep at night. Because when you do this, it will chase away any contrary spirit assigned against you.

Whenever you hear a knock on the door in the dream or reality, please don’take it for granted and don’t be afraid, immediately you start to carryout enquiry in the spirit if the knock is actually from a human or non-human. However, if you notice armed robbery is knocking at your door at that time, please ask the Lord the next thing to do. The signs of many knocks on your door, could be a warning alert of potential danger/trouble emerging.

You need to send the problems/demons back to senders. At that point, start praying. Although, these signs can either be something good or bad coming. So you must be observant during this time. When you hear someone knocking on your door, it might mean you will receive unexpected guests or pleasant news. The signs can also reflect the need to be alert of your surroundings and be mindful of people who try to come close to you.

Hearing Knocking – How many times in the dream or reality?

There are different signs and meanings to the number of knocks you hear in the dream or reality. All these things usually happen mostly at night especially where everywhere is quiet or where you are alone at home. When you hear 1 knock on the door, it can be a sign of good news or angels coming to protect you.  When you hear one knock and after like 2 minutes another knock came, then it can also mean that you have a close person who want to fight you.

However, if you feel calm, then the hearing of two knocks can believe to be a sign that new friends are going to enter your life. Possibly, someone wants to discuss something important to you. When you hear 3 knocks on the door, it can mean evil is around the corner. This sign may even appear in the form of fear or nightmares. Command the evil spirit knocking your door to roast to ashes.

To hear 4 knocks on the door, it can be a warning you to be at alert and vigilant because the enemy is trying to attack you. To hear 5 knocks, for example, it can be a sign of armed robbery operating. Always close your door and be security conscious and be prayerful. Cover yourself and house with the blood of Jesus and the fire of the Holy Ghost.

In the Bible, the knock on your door is also a reflection of call to salvation and open doors. If you are expecting good things, then hearing knocks on your door, in some cases, it can be a sign of good luck coming into your life.

Believe that everything will turn out well for your good. Sometimes, hearing someone knocking your door, it can also mean that you are going to receive angelic visitation through human form. Always accept or welcome people in your house.

This sign can also mean answers to your prayers. Do not be afraid of the sound, believe that God is making everything to work together for your good. If you think that someone is trying to harm you, command the power of God to expose and disgrace the person hiding behind the mask against you. On the other hand, when you hear a knock on your door, it can be a sign that a spirit is trying to get your attention on something.

In the Bible, this sign is also encouraging you to take heed to warnings and instructions. In life, when we are encountering trouble or approaching the right path, then God will send the knock on your door to make you spiritually sensitive.

No wonder in Acts 12:16, the Bible says, but peter continue knocking when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished. Are you expecting the Holy Spirit in your life? If yes, then open your heart-door to receive him. For example, if Jesus knocks on your door (You may know this through your feelings), He would want you to open it so that He can come in based on your permission.

But the truth is, the number of knocks on your door varies due to other details. Did you hear knock in your sleep? If yes, you may need to search your spiritman to udnerstand the actual signal better. To dream of knocking on the door by yourself, it means that a certain door is shut against you.

You need the power of God to closed door before you. If you re knocking someone door but they didn’t allow you in, then it means your visitation is not welcome or appreciated by someone. Stop going where you are not invited or expected, because it brings disgrace.

To dream of police knocking on your door, it can symbolize trouble approaching. Be very careful during this time. When someone is knocking your door or public gate, if you are not led to open it, kindly wait.

Many people open the doors that will conncect them to rich opportunities, and while others open the door of misfortune. So when you had many knocks, then it can mean someone urgently need your help. Or the meaning could be connected to something entirely such as fear or having negative thoughts in you.

Is there anyone in your life who has been knocking your door or trying to get access to you which you denied him of? Then try to find out if he has any message to deliver to you, but if his visitation is unexpected, then you can ask the Holy Spirit to tell you the next thing to do. I pray for you, may evil not befall you nor come enar your dwelling. You are safe and protected in the secret place of the Almighty.

Instruction: Embark on 7 days of fasting and prayers from 6am to 6pm. Pray against fear, danger and evil attacks.


  1. Every evil hand knocking at the door of my life, die, in the name of Jesus.

  2. O Lord, let the rage of the wicked against me, scatter, in the name of Jesus.
