In Christianity, just as the death of Jesus signifies a new beginning and forgiveness of all your sins, Fighting a battle in the dream and winning signifies that God has taken charge of that battle and he is victorious, therefore all those things that you have been struggling with have melted away. You have defeated the devil and God has got your back.

Anger / Frustration

Your dream may also be a way to let out your frustration in a case where you can’t seem to do that in your waking life. Are you frustrated about a project that you can’t seem to get right or your relationship that you can’t seem to let go of, your dream means that you need to let go of some steam for the good of your mental health.


It’s true that experiencing a War in a dream has the potential to make the dreamer feel a different kind of agitated, however, you can rest assured of winning when God is on your side.
