A dream about centipedes happens to be one of the many terrifying dreams that people see. Based on demand, I decided to write on the meaning of this dream. So, follow up as we learn the biblical meaning of centipede in dreams.
Some dreams are often beneficial; they can cause the dreamer's life to change for good. But not all dreams are this way. Some dreams can signify a warning or something undesirable that is about to befall the dreamer in their waking life.
Leviticus 11:41-43 KJVAnd every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth shall be an abomination; it shall not be eaten. Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for they are an abomination. Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creepeth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them, that ye should be defiled thereby.
I've noticed that many people attribute the spiritual meaning of centipede to healing, wisdom, energy, sacrifice, and courage. But these interpretations happen to be the direct opposite of what centipedes truly means spiritually.
If we interpret danger as safety to people, how then do we expect them to be safe from harm? There is nothing positive about seeing centipedes in dreams.
Since centipede dreams often show up in various forms, we will talk about the following in this article:
- Centipede dream Biblical meaning
- Centipede dream meaning
- Big centipede dream meaning
- Black centipede dream meaning
- Bit by centipede in dream
- Spiritual meaning of a centipede in a dream
From my observations, I can say that centipede dreams are not very common. But if anyone happens to see such a dream, they must understand that it is not a good omen—but a bad one. It's not a dream one should sit back and do nothing about after seeing it.
What does it mean when you dream a centipede bites you ? The appearance of centipedes in dreams often symbolizes evil, sin and death. In some cases, centipede dreams come as a very deadly witchcraft attack.
Spiritual Meaning Of Centipede In A Dream
The Bible doesn't say much about centipedes, apart from the fact that it classes them under “the abominable creeping things” that shouldn't be eaten by man (Leviticus 11:41-43).
You will agree with me that centipedes are not just “creeping” but very “creepy-looking” creatures. Their many-legged bodies horrify more than they fascinate. Apart from the fact that centipedes are horrific-looking creatures, they are also venomous. A centipede bite is not something anyone would wish to experience, since it can end up really disastrous.
Due to its venomous nature, the centipede may be connected with death or witchcraft. Lurking in damp, dirty places, the centipede may as well symbolize sin, demons and evil.
Mark 5:12 NKJVAnd the demons begged Him, saying, “Send us to the pigs so that we may go into them!”
What this should tell us is that, whenever we see centipedes in our dreams, we must understand that they do not appear to bring good luck but evil and destruction.
To be more specific, centipedes in dreams often symbolize the following:
- Sin and evil
- Spirit of death
- Presence of demons
- Witchcraft attacks
- Numerous obstacles
- Very stubborn problems
- Diverse kinds of challenges
- Dangerous friends
From the list above, it's apparent that centipede dreams shouldn't be treated lightly, as they never represent something good.
1. Centipede Dream As Demonic And Witchcraft Attack
The most prevalent manifestation of centipedes in dreams comes as a form of witchcraft and demonic attack. If you suddenly saw in a dream that your home was invaded by centipedes; if you got bit by a centipede in your dream, it is obvious that you have come under serious witchcraft or demonic attacks from the kingdom of darkness!
The presence of many centipedes around you or within your home in dreams often symbolize the presence of demons. I presume that it's already an acceptable fact that demons don't go after people for good, but always with an assignment to destroy them.
Whenever one happens to see such a dream, they must understand that the kingdom of darkness is on a cooperative mission to attack and bring them down by all means.
2. Centipede Dream As Problems And Difficulties
Although very rare, it is possible for one to see dreams of centipedes when they are going through diverse kinds of challenges—all at the same time.
In such times, seeing centipedes in dreams may also point to the difficulty the dreamer is presently experiencing in finding solutions to their problems.
1 Peter 5:7 AMPCasting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].
If this is your current situation, I'll like to remind you that you were not created to go through what that you're passing through all by yourself. Do not hesitate to ask for God's help. He loves you, and will always show up to calm your storm.
3. Centipede Dream As Dangerous Friends
Sometimes, evil and dangerous friends may be revealed to us as centipedes surrounding us in dreams. We should take note of centipede dreams where the centipedes tend to be friendly.
Proverbs 26:24-26 NLTPeople may cover their hatred with pleasant words, but they’re deceiving you. They pretend to be kind, but don’t believe them. Their hearts are full of many evils. While their hatred may be concealed by trickery, their wrongdoing will be exposed in public.
That a centipede doesn't bite just yet does not mean that it cannot bite or won't eventually bite when the opportunity presents itself. Some of us often pray that God reveals to us people's hearts and intentions towards us. When such gets revealed to us, we also should be swift to take appropriate actions.
Killing Centipede In Dream Meaning
For some people, before seeing themselves killing centipedes in their dreams, they must have seen a dream where centipedes bit or attacked them.
If you prayed after seeing such a dream, and the dreams you saw after your prayers included a dream of you killing centipedes, then that dream reveals that you are victorious against the attacks of your enemies.
Dreams of killing centipedes could also symbolize finding solutions to difficult situations that have been plaguing your life for a long time.
In both cases, the dreamer is victorious and should glorify God for their victory.
