Biblical Meaning Of Mermaid In Dreams

On iBlogGospel, we bring you dream interpretations based on the holy Bible, and from a Christian standpoint. This is just to remind you that you shouldn't expect to get from us the meaning of dreams based on psychology, or any other basis apart from the Christian holy scriptures. 

Ephesians 6:12 ESV
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Not everyone sees dreams about mermaids. Dreams of mermaid rarely show up, except to certain people, and for very specific reasons (which we will highlight as we progress). 

People see different dreams of mermaid, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Dream of mermaid swimming
  • Dream of mermaid talking to you
  • Dream of mermaid in water
  • Dream of mermaid flying

The mermaid dream you must have seen which led you to search for its meaning online, might be different from the above-mentioned. But sit tight and read on, let's trust the Spirit of God to bring understanding concerning your dream

While there are people who try to see dreams of mermaid in a good light—by giving positive or fortunate interpretation to them—I'll tell you for free today that, mermaid dreams are rarely a good omen. 

Mermaid dreams often come from the enemy, either as a direct spiritual attack or as a form of manipulation, to make the dreamer fall prey to the snares of darkness. 

Biblical Meaning Of Mermaid In Dreams Christianity


As a Christian, if you happen to jokingly mention or talk about mermaids in any Christian circle, it is likely that such a joke will be met with reprove by other Christians. Fellow Believers would start having different thoughts concerning you. Some would outrightly conclude you are possessed by the devil, while others would think you've fallen and needs to be restored back on the right path. 

Apparently, every genuine Christian knows that a mermaid is isn't something good. There are also no positive mermaid dreams, except if you were exercising God's authority and dominion to subdue and win a battle against a mermaid in a dream

2 Corinthians 6:14 NIV
Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?

The Bible enables us to understand that two kingdoms exist in the unseen realm: the kingdom of Light and the kingdom of darkness. These two kingdoms are like two opposing forces and are always in contention with each other. 

A mermaid is a citizen of the kingdom of darkness. The mermaid domain (known as the marine kingdom) is one of the most wicked arms of darkness. With it, the enemy works tirelessly day and night, to oppress those who are not part of his kingdom. 

So if you happen to see a mermaid in a dream, you should know what you're dealing with. They are not of God but from the enemy. They do the bidding of their master, which is to kill, steal and to destroy (John 10:10).

If you're one of those who have been treating mermaid dreams as just mere or normal dreams, as you read this interpretation today, I believe that your view, understanding or response towards such dreams would change. Dreams of mermaid are not dreams one should treat with levity. 

Dream About Mermaid Biblical Meaning


The book of Ephesians 6:12 makes us understand that we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against evil rulers and authorities in the unseen realm; against spiritual forces of evil in heavenly places. 

The root of evil in the universe is the rebellion of Satan against God while he was in Heaven. This act of disobedience led to his eviction from Heaven (together with other angels who took part in the rebellion against the Almighty). 

The moment the enemy and his cohorts where thrown out of Heaven, that is when the kingdom of darkness came into being. 

Just as a hierachy of God's Angels exist in Heaven, there is also a hierarchy of fallen angels who were thrown out of Heaven with their leader. This evil hierarchy is what the Bible calls evil forces in heavenly places. 

This is to help you better understand what you're dealing with, if you're one of those who often dream about mermaids:

  1. A mermaid is one of the fallen angels that was cast out of Heaven due to their rebellion. 
  2. If you have been meeting and conversing with a particular mermaid in your dream, it is time you start praying against such dreams. You are ignorantly dabbling into a covenant with the kingdom of darkness.
  3. Seeing mermaids in dreams shouldn't be considered as fun, but as a spiritual attack. Such dreams also shouldn't be allowed to continue. 
  4. Society does its best to make abnormal things seem normal and acceptable to the masses. One way they achieve this is through movies. There are many who never had a dream about mermaids, until they started watching mermaid movies. The eyes are gates to the soul, and should be guarded at all times. Be very intentional about the things you absorb through the eyes. 
  5. There are instances where kids start describing vivid dreams of mermaid that they frequently see, only for their parents to shrug off as nothing. In most cases, these kids began dreaming those dreams after watching mermaid cartoons. Parents need to be extra vigilant and be very selective about what they allow their children to watch. 

While some claim that the Bible makes no mention of mermaids or mermaids do not exist, we know that they do exist. The Bible has given us clues confirming the existence of these malevolent beings. 

It is believed that the abode of marmaids are water bodies, hence, they are called marine spirits. These spirits are very deceptive, manipulative and deadly in their operations.  

Revelation 12:12 (ESV)
Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!

The phrase "marine spirit" is a popular one among spiritual people. A spiritual person will always admit that there exist such spirits.  

Besides, there are many people out there who are reportedly dealing with one spiritual problem or another, stemming from the marine kingdom

  • You've heard of people going to perform sacrifices to the river goddess in return for a blessing. 
  • You've heard about people performing rituals or religious rites involving the river goddess.
  • You've heard about cults and religions that worship a water goddess.
  • You've heard of fake pastors going to receive powers from water spirits, to be able to perform miracles.
  • There are people who seek to communicate with and establish a covenant with water spirits for riches. 

All of these are not fairytales. They are more real than anyone can imagine. 

Mermaids are among the highest-ranking wicked spirits. They occupy a very elevated place in the hierarchy of spiritual wickedness in heavenly places. The Bible reveals to us the activities of one of the ruling water spirits in Revelation 17:

Revelation 17:1-3 
One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits by many waters. The kings of the world have committed adultery with her, and the people who belong to this world have been made drunk by the wine of her immorality. 

Deliverance ministers will admit that they have dealt with many cases of marine spirit oppression and possession. These spirits or real and they are out on a deadly mission, but our God has given us power over all powers of darkness—including that of marine spirits (Luke 10:19).

If you have been experiencing marine spirit dream attacks, I pray for you today: That as you read this dream interpretation and pray the prayers that follow, that you will receive total liberation from mermaid spirits. In Jesus Name! 

A mermaid in a dream [based on the evil roles they play in their attempt to destroy humanity] often symbolizes the following:

1. The Spirit Of Lust And Seduction


The mermaid spirit works to entrap souls through lust and seduction. This same spirit is behind provocative dressing and every form of seductive audio and visual vices, projected through social media and the mainstream media. 

2. Spiritual Husbands And Spirit Wives 


There are many people (including some Christians) who are oppressed by what is popularly known as spirit wives or spirit husbands (incubi and succubi). This happens to be one of operations of marine spirits. 

In most cases, these kind of attacks often manifest as dreams of dogs acting friendly around the dreamer, and dreams of defilement

3. Demonic Covenants And Marine Coven Initiations


There are certain people who have seen recurring dreams of talking to mermaids, seeing mermaids in the river, or visiting the mermaid kingdom underwater. 

These dreams are not a coincidence. Most of such dreams are used as manipulative vices by the marine kingdom to initiate the dreamer into their coven, without their knowledge or consent. 

4. The Spirit Of Perversion And Promiscuity


When you see certain people who are so promiscuous and are not willing to repent, despite all the advices and sermons they've been hearing, it is likely that their lifestyle is being influenced by a marine spirit

The marmaid spirit is a spirit of perversion. It is the spirit behind adultery, fornication, masturbation, homosexuality and lesbianism. 

The spirit behind what the world calls “adult entertainment” and prostitution, is the mermaid spirit. This spirit hates to see people live in obedience to God's Word. 

If you've been experiencing difficulties stopping certain promiscuous and perverse acts or lifestyle, continually praying may not be the solution. You may need to get delivered from the spirit behind them.

Dream Of Mermaid Swimming


Most marine spirit attacks often start as subtle and harmless-looking as dreams of seeing mermaids swimming

That is why it is advisable that the moment a mermaid starts appearing in your dream, the dreamer should start praying against such dreams, and pray for them to end. It doesn't necessarily have to look like an attack before you start praying. 

Dream Of Mermaid Attack


In most dreams, a mermaid may likely put up a harmless-looking and kind personality, so as to further perfect their plot of luring, entraping and initiating the dreamer. 

But the moment the dreamer breaks away from their spell and begins to pray against those dreams, marine spirits will always show their true evil personality, by aggressively attacking the dreamer. 

If you see a mermaid attacking you in the dream, you are likely doing something right, which is negatively impacting their kingdom and activities. No need to be scared if you happen to see such a dream, but pray even more. 

Seeing Yourself As A Mermaid In Dreams 


There are many people (especially females) who often dream that they are a mermaid among other mermaids in the sea. 

Most of these dreams validate that the dreamer has already been initiated into the marine kingdom (knowingly or unknowingly). They would need deliverance through the hand of an Anointed servant of God in order to be free. 

A dream of being a mermaid, a dream of seeing yourself in the river with mermaids and a dream of turning into a mermaid, all signale the same thing: an initiation had been perfected, with or without the dreamer’s consent. 

Dreams Associated With Mermaids Or Marine Spirits

The following these confirm the existence of marine spirit activities in the life of the dreamer:

1. Dream Of Snakes


If you are one of those who always see dreams of snakes around you, dreams of snakes in your apartment or snakes chasing you in dreams, you may be dealing with marine spirits. 

2. Dream Of Dogs 


If you often see dreams of dogs licking your hands and feet, or dogs trying to be friendly and close to you; dreams of strange dogs in your apartment, etc, you are dealing with marine spirits who are attempting to gain a foothold in your life. 

3. Dream Of Swimming In The River


If you often find yourself swimming in your dreams, or diving into the bottom of the sea and meeting people and a strange civilization, you are dealing with marine spirits. The earlier you seek deliverance, the better.

4. Getting Married In A Dream


Getting married in a dream or having someone put a ring in your finger in the dream, symbolizes demonic marriage to water spirits or marine spirit covenants. Except they are delivered, the dreamer will often have a hard time getting married or having a lasting marriage in their waking life.

Final Words On Mermaid Dreams 


Contrary to what many think, mermaids are not beautiful and innocent creatures. Real mermaids are the direct opposite of what the mainstream media portrays them to be. 

Mermaids are evil, lustful and sinful creatures, who exist with the purpose of enticing, entraping and luring as many souls as they can into, into the path of perversion. 

Mermaids work alongside Satan, demons and other fallen angels to steal, kill and to destroy. Those who seek riches from mermaids are directly seeking them from the devil. Do not forget that if the devil gives one thing, he will take seven in return. But the blessings of God makes rich and adds no sorrow (Proverbs 10:22).

Except God was giving you victory against a mermaid in a dream you saw, no mermaid dream is positive or harmless. Most mermaid dreams will start as harmless-looking, but don't be deceived by that. The moment you start seeing mermaids in your dreams, that is the right time you should start praying to cancel those dreams. 

If you think you are being oppressed by a marine spirit, continously pray the prayers in this article until you gain your total liberty from marine spirit influence. You may also need meet an Anointed minister of the Gospel, and have him or her pray over you, for your deliverance.
