Dream Of Being Chased By A Mad Man

There are people who repeatedly see a mad man chasing them in a dream and end up baffled. Let us discuss the biblical meaning of man man chasing dream
Seeing that you were chased by a mad man in a dream is a rare occurrence, but a very serious dream! Anyone who sees this dream should not by any means let it slide, without taking the appropriate actions against it. 

Probably you also saw a dream of being chased by a mad man and would want to discover the meaning. The Holy Spirit interprets dreams and I believe He will unveil the meaning of this dream to you today, and provide solutions where necessary. 

Dream Of Being Chased By A Mad Man

Seeing a mad man in waking life can be a scary experience, talk more in dreams. The sight of a mad person both in dreams and in waking life, is a gruesome one.

The Bible says a couple of things about mad men and they're not good ones. 

1 Samuel 21:13-14
And he changed his behavior before them and acted like a madman in their hands, scribbling on the doors of the gate and letting his saliva run down his beard. Then Achish said to his servants, 'See how this man is behaving like a madman! Why bring him to me?

If in the physical world, no one would like to associate with a mad man, then dreaming of a mad man chasing you cannot be a good omen either. 

Mad man dreams do not come from God, hence, they are not godly dreams. A dream about a mad man often comes as a Satanic attack against the dreamer.

That said, the moment you start seeing mad men in your dreams, you need to sit up and pray aggressively to destroy the plans and works of the enemy against you. 

Dream Of Being Chased By A Madman Biblical


When you see a dream of a mad man chasing you, know that the enemy is all out to destroy you. In the physical world, if you have ever witnessed a mad man chasing after someone, they did so because they wanted to harm the person. 

Most mad people on the streets are always violent towards every sane person around them. I'll tell you why. The reason is because they are possessed by demons. 

Demons are violent and destructive evil spirits. They don't like God's creation, that's why they are possessing the mad man in the first place—in order to destroy him. 

If you happened to see a dream of a mad man chasing you, it could mean any of the following:

1. Demons That Just Want To Attack


I have witnessed a situation where a mad man suddenly got angry with someone on the streets and attacked them. That person was a Christian. What transpired was that the evil spirit possessing the mad man saw the light of God in that individual, got angry and attacked them. As we all know, darkness hates light. 

If you saw a dream of a mad man attacking you, it could simply be demons attacking you. Remember, the fact that you are a child of God is enough reason for agents of darkness to hate and attack you. 

2. The Spirit Of Death Assigned Against You


Attacks from the spirit of death assigned against the dreamer can also manifest as a dream of mad man attacking them. 

3. Foundational Powers Fighting You 


Evil foundational powers from the dreamer’s family may sometimes show up as a mad man in a dream to attack them.

If you experience recurring dream of being chased by a mad man, the meaning isn't far from this. 

4. Foundational Curse Of Insanity At Work


In some families, so many strongholds operate to ruin lives. In such a family, there may exist a curse of insanity against some of the family members. The intent is to inflict them with insanity and render them useless. 

But who God has blessed, no man can curse. May their curses backfire, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

5. Attack From The Spirit Of Poverty And Wretchedness


The spirit of poverty and wretchedness may sometimes show up as a mad man in the dream, to attack the dreamer

Spiritual Meaning Of Being Chased By A Mad Man In A Dream


Surprisingly, I discovered that even some Christians who report about seeing a mad man chasing them in a dream, always run from the man (according to them). 

The mad man you see in your dream fighting you or chasing you, isn't a man per se. It is an evil spirit; a demon assigned from the kingdom of darkness with the mission to fight and destroy you. 

If you have been seeing a mad man chase after you in dreams and the only thing you do is run away, that is no way the best action to take. It doesn't also show you're victorious against the powers of darkness. 

Psalm 18:37 ESV
I pursued my enemies and overtook them, and did not turn back till they were consumed. 

David said that he pursued his enemies, overtook them, and did not turn back until they were destroyed. You should pray that God enables you to confront whoever is chasing you in a dream, and defeat them.

Christians have God's backing, they shouldn't be the ones running away from evil. Instead, evil should be scared and run from us. 

Fighting With A Mad Man In A Dream Means What


If you saw in a dream that you were fighting a mad man, that is a live spiritual warfare you saw. But the outcome of the dream is what matters the most. Did you defeat the mad man or you were defeated? That is what determines whether or not you were victorious.


Prayer Against Dream Of Being Chased By A Mad Man

  2. By the power of God, I come against and destroy every foundational power risen against me.

  7. Demonic mad man assigned against me, reverse back and harm your sender!
  8. Powers of darkness fighting hard to make my life miserable, be destroyed by the power of God! In the Name of Jesus Christ!
  9. You spirit of poverty assigned against me, reverse and attack Your sender now! In the Name of Jesus Christ!
  10. Persistent dreams of mad man pursuing and attacking, I command you to come to a halt now! In the Name of Jesus Christ! 

Final Thoughts On Dream Of Being Chased By A Mad Man


No dream of being chased by a mad man is a good omen. These dreams are also not from God. It is the enemy working desperately to destroy the dreamer. But he shall not succeed, in Jesus Name.

Running away when chased by a mad man in a dream isn't the best choice. Pray that God endues you with power so that you can stand and fight back in such dreams.

If you happen to summon the courage to fight back in any of these dreams, you will discover that you are more powerful than them, and agents of darkness are scared of you.

God be with you.
