By their nature, rat exploits human food through eating and contamination. Rats are usually seen in a dirty environment, including houses. They invade people’s house to seek after things they can eat.

They live with humans and eat people’s food. In the realm of the spirit, they always have a different mission but to steal and pollute people’s food.

When the spirit of rat (poverty) is attached to your life, it is almost impossible for you to save money and enjoy your glory. If you are a person and you are yet to complete whatever you have started, then your life is not going anywhere.

By their nature, rat is always known to steal in the reality. Any human agents assigned to use rat to steal from people in their dream, that portends an unprofitable works.

The Bible says “You shall not steal” (Ex 20:15). It is a command and warning to those witchcraft power troubling the peace of people’s financial glory and blessings.

To steal, it means to come secretly and gradually taking something that does not belong to you. But when you notice that rat is stealing from you either your money, or other important document, clothes, shoes etc and  whenever you wake up from sleep, you had a feeling of rat or something has been stolen  from you, it means great loss is coming.

The loss can easily manifest in the areas of marital failure, inability to finish works, rejection, promise and fail, and sickness.

When something is stolen from you in the dream, it means such things could be so important to you and which can disorganize you as a person.  It is a known fact that the enemy is using rat dream to plant great loss for people.

Spiritual rat is called ‘the thief’. The devil attack people with the ability of making it in life. But his only intent is to ‘steal, kill and destroy’. He steals money and material property but he also steals spiritual things.

The devil and his agents want to steal your peace, joy, testimony and the Word of God from your memory. He has no mercy for you. He does not care if you become poor so that he becomes rich through your loss.

If any rat steals from you without any remorse or any desire to pray against it, the demon of loss will imprison your financial glory.  A dream of rat stealing from you is a confirmed spiritual attacks.

As a child of God, if you steal from others, demons will steal from you too. If you are not a faitful sower or tither and you are happy with it, then the enemy will steal from you. The devil can steal your health, peace, joy, satisfaction, works, marriage, etc.

Since rat in the dream represent the demon of loss, and when you dream of dead rats, this signifies a victory over your enemies and financial freedom. This kind of dream can prepares you for great financial recovery when you get your focus and dream in place (Exodus 14:14).

Dream about dead rats represent a sign that God has answered your key prayer points. At such moment, the Bible says, He shall supply all your needs and you shall recover all what the cankerworm, palmerworm has eaten from your blessings.

A dream about dead rats is a dream of bye-bye to poverty and other sharp afflictions in your life. Through this dream, God has decided to work with your financial blessings and other common desires in life.

When we see dead rats in the dream, we mean all your stubborn pursuers are dead. When we see dead rats in the dream, we mean all garments that represent poverty in your life has been torn away.

The dead rats promotes you to the highest level in life, because every obstacle preventing your greatness has been cleared away or laid to rest.

On the other hand, if you kill a rat or rat in your dream, it mean God has anointed you to destroy your enemies. If there is a person that is always blocking your ways in the reality, the person may just been dead or lose his or her position.

This rat dream may also point to your household and witchcraft powers sitting on your breakthrough. It may also interpret that God has exposed the secret works of your enemies against you.
