Dr. Daniel Kolawole Olukoya, exemplary father and spiritual father

[adsense] The Section 5 of the 70-DAYS Fasting and Prayer this year 2009 (DAY 41 to 50), is devoted to attacking Dream Criminals. What a great leverage to read and drink deep into Dr. Olukoya’s teachings and revelation on this most important subject of spiritual warfare. Follow me as I bring you the sermon of Dr. Daniel Olukoya on dealing with dream criminals:

Dreaming is a natural way in which the spirit world breaks out into our lives. Dreams can be described as the dark speech of the spirit. They can be keys to unlocking the door to the inner world.

Dreams have been referred to as the speech of the spirit. They are means of revelation. Unfortunately, modern men and women have chosen to either ignore dreams altogether or to fear that an interest in them is lack of civilization. The fact is that if we would listen, dreams can help us find increased spiritual victory and help.

Dreams – Sources of Revelation
Once we have the revelation that dreams can be a key to unlocking the door to the spirit world, we can take some vital steps. First, we can specifically pray inviting God to inform us through our dreams. Secondly, we should declare war when dreams are used against us and thirdly, we should learn how to interpret dreams.

The best way to discover the meaning of dreams is to ask the Holy Spirit.
It is worthy of note that God promised that He would speak to His people by dreams in the last days. Acts 2:17 says: “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.”

Therefore, our dreams need to be studied and analyzed with a view to decoding their messages.
There is no other passage to turn to for a proper understanding of victory over satanic dreams than Matthew 13:25: “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed.. .”

Unfortunately, the problems in the lives of most people start with instances of satanic dreams.
DANGER! – People face two types of danger. One, a lot of people are so deep in spiritual sleep that they never remember what they dreamt about when they wake up. This is the twin danger; when somebody dreams and forgets everything, he stands the danger of missing an important message or ministration from God if He was the One speaking through the dream.

Two, if the enemy is carrying out an evil activity and you forget the dream, you also face the danger of remaining under bondage. If you are fond of forgetting dreams on a regular basis, you have a very serious spiritual problem.

SOURCES OF DREAMS – Every normal person is supposed to sleep. By the time a person is sixty years old he would have spent twenty years sleeping. And since one-third of our lifetime is spent sleeping, it means that a large percentage of our life is spent dreaming as dreaming occurs during sleep. Dreams can come from God. It can come from man. It can also come from the enemy.

When the dream is from God, the dreamer is left normal, calm, quiet, reasonable, with open and clear mind after that dream. Also if it is the Almighty talking to you in the dream, He will give you: assurance, encouragement, comfort, directions, instruction, guidance, exhortation, correction, revelation of the future, revelation of His plans and purposes to you.

If it is from your enemy or satan, the dream will be mysterious, absurd, sometimes empty, sometimes foolish, and sometimes leaving the person confused and dazed. The dream would be so unreasonable, most time it would not make any sense; sometimes it is so mysterious that you wonder what kind of dream it is.
God in His own wisdom has designed dream for man.

Everything which God has designed for man is for a good purpose. But the problem is that the enemy goes into every good thing and corrupts it. The devil turns anything that should be a friend of man into an enemy.

The list is almost endless. The Bible talks about ‘depths of satan’. The devil has many mysterious ways of afflicting people.

(A) One, you must give your life to Christ and experience the new birth. When you take this step, you will experience a major lift from the level of defeat to the level of dominion. The Bible says:

Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son: In whom we have redemption through His Blood, even the forgiveness of sins (Colossians 1:13,14).

(B) Complete dedication and consecration of your life to the Lord. This means yielding everything about your life to the Lord, totally. Once this is done, the enemy cannot bewitch you.

(C) You must not be a satanic broadcasting station. Who are satanic broadcasters? They are the gossips. Men and women who lifted mountains for God were those who learnt to be quiet; they were not talkative. Someone who is a talkative cannot become a prophet.

(D) You must pray for the anointing of the Holy Spirit to fall upon you. When this power falls upon you, things will change. The kind of Holy Ghost baptisms that people receive these days that sends things running after them needs to be checked.

(E) You must pray anti-dream attack prayers that will barricade your dreams by fire so that you do not start dreaming about what you should not.

(F) Learn the principle of spiritual warfare.

(G) You must be completely holy. Your level of holiness will determine how far the enemy will go in your life.

    2. i sawe a dream where my sister and i were in a house and a lady came from tha back door to steal our shoes, she did the first time and no one caught her but this time around i saw her and i tried catching up with her and didnt but a man led us to her place where we have problem entering due to some strange creatures but we finally entered and told the woman to release all she had but she denied it and i gave her an ultimatum to do so.
    3. i have also seen myself in eat in the dream, have intercourse but no penetration in the dream.
    4. I also have seen my self in the market place with my ex also there.

    6. after a prayer i saw myself move from a house ruled by a dark man to house which seems like freedom but the dark man asked that i be brought back.

  25. Jonwo

    Man of God please pray for me for God to deliver from from evil dreams all the time, especially eating in the dream. I have the been having this problem for few years now and it’s always constant eating in the dream. I have done deliverance on few occasions and have always been praying. I have repented of all my sins and I have been living better that the past and the problem continued. I have lost my job in the process and thing have gone bad but I thank God for all His mercies upon my life. I need a lot of prayers and advice to get out of my present situation. Thank you sir and God bless

  26. Shelly

    Only today did I awake from a dream where I was separated from my partner by a small child’s needs who then lead me to my friend of many years although the conversation was brief and obscure the child beckoned me over so I obliged it then thrust me into another dimension that been water I knew then I was fighting satan I could see myself struggling eyes wide open and twitching where he the poked my side three times with his fingers to see if I has dismissed I had but my brain had not I heard a voice say as my left hand was twitching you are free now nothing and no one can hurt you anymore then I saw my pupils fully dialate and I just floated suspended between the water and the surface it was not the ocean and it was motionless only rippling during my struggle to survive

    What does this mean

  27. Dear Jonwo , eating means poisoning you in different ways. its poisoning spiritual life. what u do when u see the dream in dream if u can just say “let hot coals of fire of god fall upon all those who are serving dfood in dreams and let them be roasted in ashes” let the food and dream attacker be roasted in ashes. for job pray gates of job whatever is holding you from real manifestation in my life by unchallengable power of the leaving god crash and open in jesus name.

  28. grandmom

    This is such a blessing I been having all these dreams mentioned about but lately I been experiencing dreams of marine life and being around fish and water. the fish was talking me I was telling people to stay away from the fish it was salt water fish because they were very colorful and bright. me and daughter began to build a shelter from these fish. I know I am in demonic dream bondage. do anybody know what this means.

  29. Pris

    Grandmom this means you have links with spirits in the water kingdom, marine spirits. You need to pray prayers against this initiation into this kingdom and the curses that come with it. It may well be that your ancestors had these links and this has been passed from generation to generation. Search on the interent how to fight against marine spirits/water spirits and you will find many prayers to pray. A man called Elisha Goodman has great prayer academy materials on fighting against such spirits and many other evil foundations, and witchcraft too. You can access his website here: and contact him for more details on how to join the prayer academy.
