What Does It Mean When You Dream Of A Snake Biting You

Dreaming of snake biting you may leave you with many questions. Read this article to learn what it means when you dream of a snake biting you.
In our previous dream interpretation about snake in the house, we discussed extensively about what it means to dream of snakes. 

If you read that dream interpretation, you must have seen that seeing snakes in dreams isn't a good omen. Except you saw a dream about killing snakes, then we can say that is a good omen. 

But in cases where you saw snakes around you, snakes in your house or snakes biting you, it is very obvious that there is nothing positive about that dream

Proverbs 23:32
Do not look on wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup and goes down smoothly. In the end it bites like a snake and stings like a viper.

I have noticed that some people (especially snake lovers in the physical world) tend to welcome snakes in their dreams. Understand that some snakes in the physical world may be harmless, but snakes in dreams are not. 

What Does It Mean When You Dream Of A Snake Biting You

If you happened to see a dream of snake biting you, what you saw is the manifestation of the direct attack of the enemy against your life. Do not take it lightly. Take the right steps to put the enemy off your life! 

What Does Snakes Mean In A Dream Spiritually


In the Bible, snake represents evil. Jesus Christ tells us in Luke 10:19 that He has given us authority to trample upon serpents and scorpions [and all powers of the enemy]. 

We see that the Lord Jesus intentionally included "all power of the enemy" in that Bible verse, and it's for context sake. He was literally saying, "yes, the snake in here is Satan the devil". 

Right from the book of Genesis, we see the enemy taking the form of a serpent to commit the atrocity he did commit in the garden of Eden. It was from thence henceforth that the symbol of the snake began being attributed to evil. 

That said, snake in a dream often symbolizes:

  • Evil people
  • Demons and false deities (fallen angels) 
  • The devil himself, etc. 

Whenever you see a snake in the dream, know that what you are seeing is an agent of darkness on a mission. Do not entertain snakes in your dreams. 

Biblical Meaning Of Snake Bite In Dream


In the physical world, we know that snake bites can be deadly, if proper and timely medical attention isn't given to the victim. But the effect can be way worse, if a snake bites a person in the dream. 

A snake bite in the dream is a deadly and direct attack of the enemy against an individual. When a snake strikes a person, it doesn't strike to keep them alive. The snake venom is meant to kill as fast as possible. 

Genesis 3:15 BSB
And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. He will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.

And we know that the assignment of the devil is to kill, steal and to destroy (John 10:10). The enemy wouldn't attack anyone this way in a dream simply because he wants to keep them alive. The attack is meant to terminate the life of the dreamer

But the Lord says that He has given us authority to bruise the head of the serpent! So long you survived a snake bite in the dream and woke up alive, you are victorious! 

But you shouldn't stop there. The enemy has done his job unsuccessfully, now it's your turn. You should go ahead and bruise the enemy through prayer! 

What Does It Mean When You Dream Of A Snake Biting Someone


If you eventually see a dream of snake biting someone, do not just forget about it and do nothing. God is showing you that the enemy is after that individual to destroy them. You should intercede on behalf of that person. Pray to cancel the evil plans of the enemy against their life. 

Snake Bite In Dream Good Or Bad


As you have seen, snake bite in a dream is not and will never be a good omen. If a person sees a dream where they got bit by a snake, it means that the enemy has finalized evil plans against them—and he's starting to put them in action. 

A dream of snake bite—if not aggressively and powerfully prayed against—can bring about the following in the dreamer’s life:

  • Untimely death
  • Imminent threat to health or illness 
  • Imment demon-induced problems (they could be endless) 
  • Impending danger in waking life, etc. 

Now that you know how dangerous a dream of snake bite can be, do not handle such dreams like they're nothing. It is even safer to pray effectively and protect yourself from getting bit by snakes in dreams. 

Prayer Against Snake Bite In Dreams
