Dreams of fighting and getting stabbed are not uncommon. There are many out there who have been seeing themselves getting stabbed in dreams

If you recently saw a dream where you got stabbed and wondered what it could mean, there is definitely a meaning for your dream

The Holy Spirit brings us accurate dream interpretation. So once again, we will trust His wisdom, to help us decipher the spiritual meaning of being stabbed in a dream. 

If you are one of those who have seen yourself being stabbed by someone in your dreams, I urge that you prayerfully read this article, to get the meaning of your dream and solutions where necessary.

Dream Of Being Stabbed Biblical Meaning

Dreams of being stabbed come in diverse forms to different people. Some examples are as follows:

  • Dream of being stabbed by someone
  • Dream of being stabbed by a stranger
  • Dream of being stabbed in the stomach
  • Dream of seeing someone being stabbed
  • Dreaming of someone being stabbed in the back

I'm aware that some people are fond of writing off dreams as ordinary and meaningless; like something that will have no effect on the dreamer. I wouldn't advise anyone to approach dreams this way.

Life is spiritual. Things we experience spiritually are more real than the ones we experience while awake in the physical world. This makes it unwise to write off dreams of getting stabbed as meaningless and of no effect. Such dreams could turn out very detrimental on the dreamer’s waking life. 

There are many who see dreams of people chasing at them and trying to stab them to death. In some of such dreams, the attacker was able to successfully stab the dreamer. The dreamer could feel the pains from the knife cut, and sometimes they sustained injuries in those dreams. 
If you've experienced this before, you could readily tell how real everything looked and felt. It is not a hallucination, it is something that truly happened in the spiritual realm. 

Psalm 35:1-2
Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me. Take hold of shield and buckler and rise for my help! 

If someone were to pursue you with a knife in the physical world—of course with the intent of stabbing you—they would do so because they feel offended by you. They would do that not because they love you, but because they don't like you, so they want to harm you. 

The case cannot be different in the dream. A dream of being stabbed is an activity from stubborn pursuers. Stubborn pursuers are real enemies who may not appear as one in the physical world, but work tirelessly in secret to harm you. 

Some have said that dreams of being attacked means betrayal, vulnerability, and feeling attacked by someone close to you. To some extent, that is also true. But every spiritual person should treat dreams of being stabbed as a direct spiritual attack from the enemy. 

Dream Of Getting Stabbed Spiritual Meaning

Every dream of getting stabbed is a bad omen. If such a dream happens to come from God, they come as a revelation and a warning concerning what the enemy may be plotting and doing against the dreamer. 

A dream of getting stabbed rarely symbolizes a pending physical attack. If you are not a troublesome person in the physical world, there's no way someone would just show up and stab you with a knife. 

Someone might probably attack your reputation with lies and backbiting in waking life, but getting stabbed in a dream rarely means you will experience exactly that while awake. 

A dream of being stabbed is often a manifestation of a deadly spiritual opposition from the enemy. For every person who hates you and may attack you spiritually, remember it is Satan who works through them. If you happened to see yourself getting stabbed in a dream, 

  • You have a secret hater who often acts as if they like you in waking life. 
  • There is someone who sees you as their opposition or competitor, and would want to eliminate you by all means
  • Someone sees you as a threat to their evil works and is being used by the devil to attack you spiritually
  • There is an agent of darkness assigned by the devil to attack and eliminate you

We have been told in the holy scriptures that the enemy exists to steal, to kill and destroy (John 10:10). In his desperation to hurt a child of God, the enemy wouldn't mind going extra mile, even to the extent of attempting to hurt the dreamer in their sleep.

That is why a dream of stabbed in most cases is a manifestation of a spiritual attack from an agent of darkness—live and direct! 

Isaiah 54:17 BSB
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their vindication is from Me,” declares the LORD.

Some of those who died in their sleep unfortunately didn't live to tell exactly what led to their death. If they could, they would likely tell that a dream like this caused their death. May that not be your portion, in the Name of Jesus Christ! 

Getting Stabbed In A Dream And Feeling It Meaning

A dream of getting stabbed reveals that there is a hidden plot of darkness against the dreamer. Getting stabbed in a dream and feeling it, is often an indication of a spiritual attack that actually happened to the dreamer in their sleep. 

A dream of getting stabbed is as real as getting stabbed in the physical realm. But the impact can be more extreme, since it is a direct attack on the dreamer’s soul. 

If you happened to dream that you got stabbed in a dream, understand that there is an attempt of darkness against your life. 

The enemy doesn't fight against anyone just for the fun of it, he fights us because he wants to ruin us. Our God will not let the enemy succeed in your life.

Psalm 27:2  BSB
When the wicked came upon me to devour my flesh, my enemies and foes stumbled and fell.

If you got stabbed in a dream, do not just wake up and go about your day. Make Psalm 27:2 your prayer point. Rise up and pray aggressively to frustrate every plot of the enemy against your life. 

Dream Of Being Stabbed By A Stranger Spiritual Meaning

Seeing that you were stabbed by a stranger in your dream is not some random dream. It is a carefully orchestrated plot of the enemy against your life. 

The stranger you saw in your dream is not just a stranger, but an agent of darkness on a mission to destroy you. Pray that God sends His angels to arrest any agent of darkness assigned to destroy your life. 

Dream Of Being Stabbed But Not Dying

If you saw that you were stabbed in a dream, but did not die, that doesn't mean all is well or the dream is harmless. 

The enemy is stubborn, if he tries once without any success, he will just keep on trying until he succeeds. Don't fold arms and let him have his way in your life!

Isaiah 49:25 NLT
But the LORD says, “The captives of warriors will be released, and the plunder of tyrants will be retrieved. For I will fight those who fight you, and I will save your children.

Being stabbed but not dying in a dream reveals to the dreamer that there is an underlying deadly attempt of enemies against their life. Take this as a warning and ask the Lord Jesus Christ to fight against those who are desperately fighting to destroy you. 

Prayer Against Being Stabbed In A Dream

  2. By the power of God, I declare that every plot of darkness against my life be frustrated now! 
  3. Powers of darkness working day and night to destroy my life, be arrested by the power of God!

  10. Whenever the enemy comes in like a flood against me in dreams, powerful Holy Spirit, raise a standard against him! 
  11. I shall not be a victim but a victor in every dream attack. In the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  12. Thank You Father for the deliverance and victory You have given me through Jesus Christ over the powers of darkness. 

Final Thoughts On Dream Of Being Stabbed

As you have seen in this article, a dream of being stabbed is not a joke and it's not a harmless dream. If allowed to recur without any firm opposition, the dreamer may not live to tell their story.

Recurring dreams of getting stabbed could repeatedly harm the soul of the dreamer, until the dreamer is eventually destroyed in the physical realm. Do not allow such dreams to persist.

If you're someone who gets attacked a lot in dreams, asking God to prevent such dreams from showing up may not be the best option. Instead, ask God to equip you for victory in your dreams.

The Bible says that God trains our hands for war and fingers for battle (Psalm 144:1). He doesn't take and hide us from the battle, He equips us to fight and obtain victory.

Ask the Almighty to equip you to fight anyone who attempts to stab you in your dream. Ask God to enable you fight, seize the knife from them and stab them instead. A child of God should have such dominion in dreams.

Beloved, I trust that by reading this article you were able to discover the meaning of being stabbed in a dream, from a Christian perspective.

God bless you.
