Biblical Meaning Of Soldiers In A Dream

Some of our blog readers have reportedly dreamed about soldiers, and some suggested I write an interpretation on seeing soldiers in dreams. So this article comes in response to that request. Join us as we explore the spiritual meaning of seeing soldiers in a dream. 

Dream of soldiers happens to be one of the strangest dreams, and these dreams tend to come in various forms. While many often dream about war and seeing solders, some have reached out to me asking questions like, “I was a soldier in my dream, what does it mean?” 

Seeing soldiers in dreams can come with the feeling of fear, confusion or even excitement. These dreams are very important and serious dreams, the dreamer should pay keen attention to them. 

Also, diverse soldier dreams come with their different meanings—which we will explore under some of the following subheadings:

  • Spiritual meaning of a soldier
  • Soldier spiritual meaning
  • Seeing soldiers in a dream
  • Dreaming of soldiers

The military exists at the helm of the hierarchy of armed forces. Its operations are more coordinated and deadly than all other forces. Seeing soldiers in the dream is not something that happens frequently; such dreams don't show up to just anyone. They are very serious dreams and sometimes, can be very prophetic. 

If you happen to dream about soldiers, take your time to find out the meaning of every symbol within that dream, because there is something concerning your spiritual life that it's trying to reveal to you. 

In the physical world, soldiers are powerful and respectable; their appearance in the midst of chaos often restores order. In most cases, when the military intervenes in a conflict, peace will be restored (although soldiers can either restore peace or wage war—depending on which is necessary at the moment). The military has capabilities that other forces do not have. 

Every kingdom has soldiers guarding its territory, waging war, curtailing rebellion and ensuring order. In the Bible, soldiers operated based on the commands of the king of a particular kingdom. The case isn't different when it comes to the spiritual world.  

Just as every country and kingdom of this world has her own military, in the spiritual realm, both the kingdom of God and that of darkness also has soldiers. For instance, we are instructed in 2 Timothy 2:3 to “endure hardship, as a good soldier of Christ.” Every saved person, alongside the Angels of God are collectively “soldiers of Christ.” 

Biblical Meaning Of Soldiers In A Dream

There's a deadly battle (between the kingdom of God and that of darkness) constantly being waged in the supernatural realm. This battle is very real, fierce and is waged by real and living beings. As earlier stated, the kingdom of God has her own soldiers trained and equipped for war, likewise the kingdom of darkness. 

Isaiah 13:3 ESV
I myself have commanded my consecrated ones, and have summoned my mighty men to execute my anger, my proudly exulting ones. 

Soldier dreams often stem from two major sources: either God or the enemy—because the kingdoms of these two are actively engaged in a fierce spiritual battle. That is why soldier dreams can either be a good of bad omen; from God or from the enemy. The major determining factor of the meaning of each soldier dream is the source of the dream.  

Most times, warrior Angels from God will appear as soldiers in a dream. Also, high-ranking fallen angels and demons from the kingdom of darkness (who are assigned and commissioned for spiritual warfare) can as well take the form of soldiers in dreams

In order to ascertain the source of your dream, the dreamer must weigh it by several symbols within the dream. For example, if a soldier appeared in your dream and was protecting you from harm, it is obvious that such a dream is from God. But if a soldier was attacking to kill you in the dream, then that is obviously from the enemy. 

There is a hierarchy and ranks in Heaven's army, there is also a hierarchy in the forces of darkness. The forces of darkness constitute the hierarchy of spiritual wickedness in high places as seen in scriptures:

Ephesians 6:12 KJV
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

When soldiers show up in dreams, it takes discernment to know on whose side they are. Ofttimes, we need discernment to ascertain the source of our dreams.

When you see soldiers in your dream what does it mean? There are Angels of God and there are fallen angels serving Satan. These two groups of angels are always at war, and can both appear as soldiers in dreams. 

Biblical Meaning Of Dreams About War

Many often end up concluding that war is about to break out in a particular country or region, whenever they dream of war. It is true that we are in the end times, and there are wars and rumours of war in diverse places (just as our Lord Jesus prophesied in Matthew 24), but not all war dreams point to a coming war. 

The kingdom of God is constantly at war with the kingdom of darkness. Those who can see into the unseen realm know that the Angels of God are constantly warding off demonic attacks from people, families and homes. What most Christians see as dreams about war are simply manifestations of this battle that is raging in the unseen realm.

Except the Spirit of God reveals and expressively makes you understand that war is coming (and instructs you on what you are to do), then don't interpret such dreams as a coming war. 

Dreams About Military Invasion

When the military invades a territory, it is often to carry out operations. Apparently, they received a command to invade that territory. Most times, the purpose is to prevent troublemakers from making more trouble, and restore peace and order to that territory. 

When a Christian dreams about soldiers invading a territory, it is needful they discern and know whose kingdom those soldiers represent. 

In this season, the Almighty God is releasing warrior Angels to mount certain territories and curtail demonic activities within such territories. This is all part and parcel of God's end time plan to advance His kingdom on earth. When this happens, such prophetic dreams as seeing soldiers invading a territory can be given to a select few. 

Isaiah 31:1
But the Egyptians are men and not God; their horses are flesh and not spirit. When the LORD stretches out his hand, he who helps will stumble, he who is helped will fall; both will perish together.

For instance, if a Christian saw a dream where soldiers invaded a particular community, searched from house to house and arrested people based on the reason that they committed a crime, such dream was from God. Those soldiers are warrior Angels assigned to tackle evil spirits and their activities within that territory. 

Dream Of Soldiers Attacking

Sometimes, people see war in their dream and end up concluding that it is an actual soon coming war. But in most cases, it is what is currently happening in the spirit realm that they have been privileged to see. 

The meaning of dreams about soldier attacking depends on who they were attacking. In the dream, did you feel the attacks were launched against good people and innocent civilians? If yes, then this is not done by Heaven's army. 

As I earlier said, a war dream is rarely a war that is about to manifest in the physical world, but spiritual warfare that is happening in the spiritual realm. 

Such dreams are not given just to anyone at all. A Christian who sees such dreams is likely called and Anointed for spiritual warfare

Deuteronomy 28:7 KJV
The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.

If you saw a dream where you saw soldiers chasing to catch you or attempting to attack you, this dream shows that you are under a serious spiritual attack from the kingdom of darkness. The dreamer must stay prayed up, so as to become equal to the task. 

Dreaming Of Soldiers Chasing You

A dream of soldier from God will always be positive, but whenever you see negative soldier dreams (like dreaming of soldiers chasing you), then that dream is not from God. 

That being said, dreaming about soldiers chasing you reveals that there is a deadly spiritual attack launched by the enemy against you. I call it 'deadly' because whenever agents of darkness appear as soldiers in a dream, that often tells that they are the special forces of darkness; they are high-ranking dark spirits. 

If you got chased by soldiers in the dream, it's a sign that the devil is mad at you, and is making his best efforts to eliminate you by all means. But rest assured, God got you. 

Apparently, this is not a dream to treat with levity. Buckle up, pray and fast and confront the kingdom of darkness through spiritual warfare prayers

Dream Of Soldiers Protecting

As a Christian and a child of God, if you saw soldiers protecting you in the dream, that shows that the enemy has launched a deadly attack against you, but God has sent His warrior Angels to fight for you, and protect you from the attacks of the enemy. 

If you saw this dream, you need not worry but thank God for sending help from Heaven. Appreciate His swift response against the enemy's attacks.

Biblical Meaning Of Wearing Army Uniform

As the scripture says, we are soldiers of Christ. But not everyone in the kingdom of God is knowledgeable and experienced in spiritual warfare. 

There are Christians whom God has specially trained and equipped for spiritual warfare. Just as David confessed, the Lord has “trained our hands for war, and fingers for battle”:

Psalm 144:1 ESV
Blessed be the LORD, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle. 

Christians who have been equipped for battle—and the Lord is using them mightily to destroy the works of the enemy—may happen to see themselves wearing army uniform in their dreams. As you can see, this is actually a good dream and there is nothing to worry about. 

Dreaming That You Are A Soldier

Recurring dreams where a Christian finds theirself as a soldier often point to the fact that the Christian has been appointed, Anointed and equipped for the ministry of spiritual warfare. 

Jeremiah 1:10 KJV
See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.

At such a level, your prayers can cause massive destruction to the works of darkness. Thank God for enabling you as one of the best warriors in His kingdom.

Final Thoughts On Seeing Soldiers In Dreams

So friends, I trust that this article helped you understand the spiritual meaning of seeing soldiers in a dream. 

What does it mean to see soldiers in a dream? Dreams about soldiers or seeing soldiers waging a war in dreams rarely mean that a war is about to break out in the physical realm. I'm sure that if that were to be the case, God would have made it clear to the dreamer. 

Warrior Angels from Heaven often manifest as soldiers in dreams. Christians with the ministry and Anointing for spiritual warfare may occasionally see themselves as soldiers in dreams. High-ranking agents of darkness also do appear as soldiers in dreams. 

We're all representing different kingdoms. Every genuine Christian is a soldier in the army of God, hence, why the Bible says we are commanded to put on the whole armour of God (Ephesians 6:11), and fight the good fight of faith (1 Timothy 6:12). Therefore, endeavour to partner with God to establish His will on earth through spiritual warfare.
