Biblical Meaning Of Being Chased By A Snake In A Dream

The holy scriptures apparently doesn't give us any positive image about snakes. In the Bible, we find out that snakes are portrayed as evil and the enemy of mankind. 

There are so many verses in the Bible that speak of snakes as devils or evil. If the Bible portrays them in such a light, then they cannot mean something different in a dream—especially if they happened to chase or attack the dreamer. 

Genesis 3:15 ERV
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed: it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Right from when the curse was placed on the serpent in the book of Genesis, the serpent automatically became the enemy of mankind.

There are people who keep non-venomous snakes as pets, but that doesn't still change the fact that the symbol of a snake always depicts something evil. Even those who keep snakes as pets are always cautious not to get bitten by their pet. 

Deuteronomy 32:33 HLSB
Their wine is serpents’ venom, the deadly poison of cobras.

That said, a snake in a dream always represents...

  • A human enemy (satanists, witches or warlocks) 
  • Satan the devil
  • Evil spirits or demons
  • Fallen angels (e.g marine spirits) 
  • Evil or sin

Anyone who sees a dream of being chased by a snake should understand that they are under serious spiritual attack.

In the physical world, if you encountered a venomous snake in the bush and it started running towards you (instead of running away), you would readily know it wants to attack and harm you.

If you saw yourself being chased by a snake in a dream, that dreams reveals that there are agents of darkness assigned against you, to attack, harm and destroy you. Such a dream should not be taken lightly!

Snake attacks in dreams like this one, can stem from the dreamer’s evil family background or marine powers assigned and working against them.

A snake in a dream is a manifestation of the powers of the enemy. But what has God told us about this? 

Luke 10:19 NKJV
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

The Lord has given us authority to trample upon the powers of the enemy, whether they manifest as a snake in a dream or another way! 

Whenever you see a dream of being chased by a snake or snakes, recognise the enemy's attempt to hunt down and destroy you. It's not for fun. 

Harness the authority you have in Christ over the power of darkness to destroy the powers of the enemy risen against you. Rise up and pray aggressively to resist the enemy and destroy his works against your life.
