Spiritual Meaning Of Seeing A Bat In A Dream

Seeing a bad in a dream could leave the dreamer confused concerning its meaning. Here is the spiritual meaning of seeing a bat in a dream.
A dream of bats is one of the disturbing dreams that show up unexpectedly to people. Dreams of bats are not so common, people rarely dream about them. This also tells that it is not a dream to joke about. In this article, by the help of the Holy Spirit, we will explore the spiritual meaning of a bat in a dream. 

Once you see a strange dream about bats, pay attention to every detail that dream came with. Dreams of bats are not one of those random and unserious dreams. They always come with an important message for the dreamer. 

Leviticus 11:13-19 NIV
These are the birds you are to regard as unclean and not eat because they are unclean: the eagle, the vulture, the black vulture, the red kite, any kind of black kite, any kind of raven, the horned owl, the screech owl, the gull, any kind of hawk, the little owl, the cormorant, the great owl, the white owl, the desert owl, the osprey, the stork, any kind of heron, the hoopoe and the bat.

Different people see diverse kinds of dreams about bats. Some of these dreams include the following:

  • Dream about bats in house
  • Dream about bats biting you
  • Dream about bats attacking you
  • Killing bat in dream meaning
  • Dream of bat biting my hand

Perhaps you saw a dream of bat that is similar to one of the above listed, but couldn't readily grasp its meaning. That is why you're here trying to discover the meaning of your dream. Let us trust the Spirit of God to unveil the meaning of your dream, and proffer solution where necessary. 

Seeing a disturbing dream about bats is expected to get anyone perplexed, as these dreams are often not a good omen. 

Spiritual Meaning Of Seeing A Bat In A Dream

God is not the author of bat dreams (although He reveals the enemy's plots). A dream of a bat is a manifestation of the secret orchestrations of Satan the devil, against the dreamer. 

Bats don't show up to bring blessings to the dreamer. They show up with the intent of sowing evil and causing destruction in the life of the dreamer. 

If you happened to see a dream about bats, it would be unwise to joke about it, thinking it's a normal dream—that nothing will happen. 

Biblical Meaning Of Bats In Dreams

Bats are nocturnal animals, just like the owl. In Leviticus 11:13, God Himself classed them under "unclean" animals that man should not eat. 

I use the word "unclean" in brackets because something being unclean in God's sight goes beyond physical uncleanliness. And guess what? The kingdom of darkness is obsessed with unclean things. If it's spiritually filthy, the devil will love it. Evil is filthy. 

Bats love darkness, most of their activities are carried out in the night. That is why witches and warlocks are obsessed with creatures like bats and owls. They shape-shift into the image of these animals to go about doing evil. 

That said, bats in dreams should never be taken as ordinary bats, they are agents of darkness going about doing wickedness. 

Bats don't show up randomly in the dream, they often show up when something new from God is about to happen to the dreamer. They show up when the dreamer is about to experience breakthrough. They show up that very moment the dreamer is enjoying God's blessings. They show up to attack and bring down the dreamer. 

1. A Symbol Of Desolation And Abandonment

The scripture in Isaiah 2:20 provides a sneak peek into the spiritual symbolism of bats. It portrays bats as a symbol of desolation and abandonment. 

Isaiah 2:20
In that day man will throw to the moles and bats his idols of silver and his idols of gold, which he made for himself to worship, in the holes of the rocks and in the clefts of the crags, for fear of the Lord and for the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to make the earth tremble.

Bats infestation in the physical realm not only brings structural damage to man's work, but also infections and diseases (like rabies) that are life-threatening to man. 

The effects of bat attack in dreams are even more deadly! If you've been working on something new and great, then all of a sudden you saw a dream of bats; the enemy is plotting to cause ruin and halt that project you're handling. 

2. A Witchcraft Attack Against The Dreamer

Bats attacks in dreams are often witchcraft attacks. If you saw a dream of bats attacking you or bats biting you in the dream, understand that you are under serious witchcraft attack.

Witchcraft attacks are often meant to clamp down on the prosperity of the dreamer, strip them of their blessings, stifle their progress, hurt their finances and bring them misfortune. 

  • People lose their jobs after dreaming of bats attacking them. 
  • There are people who start experiencing losses in business after seeing a dream about bats. 
  • Some may start experiencing disappointments of all sports after dreaming about bats.

Do not treat a dream of bat infestation or attack lightly. Pray and fast aggressively to destroy every witchcraft manipulation against your life. 

3. Monitoring Spirits Assigned Against The Dreamer

The assignment of monitoring spirits is to stalk their target day and night, and report back their activities to their master. 

Bats in dreams can also symbolize the activities of monitoring spirits operating around the dreamer. 

The moment the kingdom of darkness starts monitoring a person or family, they have a plot. They are watching and waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike. 

Do not let them succeed. Once you start seeing bats in your dreams, pray and ask the angels of God to arrest and destroy every monitoring spirit assigned against you. 

What Does It Mean To Dream Of Bats In Your House

A dream of bats in your house reveals the activities of the kingdom of darkness in your home and in your life. 

When you dream of bats in your home, understand that witchcraft powers are lurking, monitoring and even starting to subtly launch attacks against you. 

In the physical world, bats infestation don't cause damage the first day it kick-starts. But if allowed to fester, the destruction would be massive. 

Psalms 56:5-6
Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil. They attack, they lurk, They watch my steps, As they have waited to take my life. Shall they escape by iniquity? In anger cast down the peoples, O God!

The above scripture perfectly describes the activities of spiritual bats in homes. Like the Psalmist, this scripture should become your prayer point—after seeing a dream of bats in your house.  

Killing Bat In Dream Meaning

If you saw a dream of killing bats, this dream symbolizes your victory over the attacks and manipulations of the enemy.

A dream of killing bats may show up after you prayed against another dream of bats in your home or bats attacking you. 

The dream of killing bats only came to assure you that your prayers are effective, God did move on your behalf! Be glad and praise Him!

Prayer Against Bats In The Dream

  1. Father, according to Your Word, You have given me power to trample upon the enemy and his works. Therefore, I harness Your power right now against every activity of spiritual bats in my life. 
  2. I come against every spiritual bat assigned against me, be destroyed now! In the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  3. Fire of God, locate and destroy every spiritual bat lurking and attacking me!
  4. Flaming arrows of God, locate and strike every spiritual bat assigned to monitor and attack me. 
  5. Warrior Angels of God, arrest and destroy every spiritual bat assigned to bring me down. 
  6. By the power of God, let the eyes of every monitoring spirit assigned against me be struck with spiritual blindness. In the Name of Jesus Christ! 
  7. Witchcraft powers lurking around and waiting for the right time to strike, be dismantled now! 
  8. By the power of God, I begin to annul every evil the enemy planned to execute against me through dreams of bat attack. 
  9. I cancel every assignment of spiritual bats against my life. They shall not be successfully carried out. In the Name of Jesus Christ! 
  10. I begin to sack evil bats by the power of God! Leave now! In the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ.
  11. I declare that from now on, evil bats are not welcome in my home and in my apartment!
  12. I shut the door against future spiritual bats infestations. 
  13. I shield my life, my home and everything belonging to me with the blood of Jesus Christ, against future attacks of spiritual bats. In the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen! 

Final Thoughts On Seeing A Bat In A Dream

As you have read here, seeing a bat in a dream isn't a good omen. It is in fact a sign of impending danger. Seeing bats infestation in your property even in waking life, calls for urgent prayers.

Bat dreams could sometimes come as revelations from God, unveiling the hidden plots of darkness against the dreamer. 

When God reveals, He wants us to pray! Saying that God wouldn't let anything happen to you isn't enough. You have to fast and pray aggressively against such dreams. Don't let the enemy ruin your life. 

Not everyone is opportuned to see what the devil is doing against them. If you are always able to, you are blessed. Don't take such a privilege for granted. God wants you safe, do your part to stay safe by being watchful and prayerful.

Stay blessed.
