  • 12. THINGS TO CONSIDER: ●THE ATMOSPHERE SURROUNDING YOU ●Let’s suppose there is a person sleeping next door that is influenced by unclean spirits, while that person is sleeping, the evil spirit is able to enter or exit the body of this person at will, as we know that spirits don’t sleep. ●Remember the troubling spirit that would take King Saul out of his normal behavior? David would play his instruments creating a worship atmosphere and the evil spirit would depart leaving King Saul in peace.
  • 13. ●The spirits ruling the region. ●If in the area were you leave there is a drug dealers ring, that spirit will influence the area. ●Or if it is a gambling area, that spirit will have predominant on the area. ●By the contrary if the area is influenced by believers, peace and tranquility will rest in that area. ●Proverbs 29:2 (NKJV) ●2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.
  • 14. ●What is predominant in your mind? ●Is something worrying it you? ●Are you living in fear? ●What type of music in sounding in your ears? ●Are you leaving a double life, with some secret addictions? ●These are things that your subconscious could bring it out as a nightmare.
  • 15. How to stop nightmares ●What is important for us is to know that: ●We don’t need them, ●We don’t like them, ●We have a Powerful Helper, ●Who can set us free, ●And help us to stay free.
  • 16. The HOLY SPIRIT is our Helper. ●Christians are inspired by the Holy Spirit to have holy thoughts. 1 Cor. 2:16 says… “But we have the mind of Christ.” ●The Holy Spirit can act on us so our works can be holy as well. ●The Holy Spirit can draw our hearts and teach us to love only what is holy. ●The Holy Spirit wraps us all over to keep us always holy.
  • 17. We need God’s wisdom. ●James 1:5 ●New King James Version (NKJV) ●5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
  • 18. We need God’s peace to guard our hearts and minds. ●Philippians 4:6-7 ●New King James Version (NKJV) ●6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
  • 19. THE POWER OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS ●Revelation 12:11 ●New King James Version (NKJV) ●11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
  • 20. APPLYING THE BLOOD OF JESUS ● The blood of Jesus is powerful and effective in the realm of thoughts, actions, reactions, addictions, and even in the realm of your subconscious and your dreams. ●You can apply the blood of Jesus over your sleeping time. When you go to bed at night, you can pray declaring aloud something like this:
  • 21. LET US PRAY: ●“Dear Father, I plead the precious blood of Jesus upon my spirit soul and body as I’m ready to sleep. Protect me from any nightmares this night. Send your holy angels to watch over me. Put in me your dreams, reveal to me your plans. I know the power of your blood dear Jesus to forgive my sins and to guard my mind. ●In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
  • 22. YOU DO YOUR OWN PRAYER ●Try it and apply it. ●Believe it and receive it. ●God wants you to experience a great night’s sleep! ●He will give you interactive dreams with Him, so you can not only see Him, but listen to Him and he will listen to you; feel Him and have revelation of the dreams God wants to communicate to you.
  • 23. Setting up the atmosphere in your bedroom: ●You need to set up your peaceful night’s rest. ●Your active participation on rejecting and saying “No” to those things that are not from God will ensure you a peaceful resting night ●The minute we stop saying “No” to those things, we could be surprised having some troubled dreams. ●Memorizing Scripture passages and declaring them is another excellent way to keep your mind and heart filled with good thoughts. ●There is much power in the Word of God to defeat temptations, demons and nightmares!
  • 24. POWERFUL DECLARATION OF GOD’S WORD: ●Psalm 4:8 ●New King James Version (NKJV) ●8 I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; For You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
  • 25. POWERFUL DECLARATION OF GOD’S WORD: ●Proverbs 3:24 ●New King James Version (NKJV) ●24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid; Yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet.
  • 26. Fill your room with worship sounds. ●You could set stereo system in your room with some worship song before going to sleep, to feel the atmosphere with a restful holy tone. ●You could even let worship music run all night with a lower volume that would not disturb your sleeping time.
  • 27. By the same token, do not be embarrassed of going for medical help. Only God can select the way how He wants to set you free. In some cases the person having the nightmares should ask for spiritual counseling and ministry, some generational stuff could be lingering around.
  • 28. ●Transition ●We will continue with the Rooms in the House of God.
