Dream – Why did the Cobras Bite?
Did I fail?
For those of us that believe, God promises us His protection from evil.
You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent. Psalm 91:13
I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. Luke 10:19
"Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Luke 11:11
Context for dream:
I had just been in a vicious battle, where I was outnumbered, physically abused, slandered, and betrayed by those in power over me.
My work was excellent, which made them angry. They had wanted me to fail. They knew I was a believer.
This went on for two years.
People were pure evil, and wanted me dead or destroyed. Demons were summoned to my house to attack me, but God protected me.
My livelihood and reputation was in danger, and were finally destroyed.
I called upon the Lord daily for his help….it was a long battle.
Slowly, the Lord brought some along to help support me.
I won the victory in the temporal, but the end result was that, because I fought back, my career was destroyed and I was wounded emotionally and spiritually. I could never know who to trust again.
In spite of many attempts to recover, the Lord let me know that what I had was gone forever.
I ended up sick, and I tried to carry on the best I could from that point on.
I am in my bridal dress, with a nest of cobras, who have been attacking me, drawing blood from me.
I am in a ditch, discarded.
Two men stand over the ditch, looking down, as if it was not important to them.
From what I can see, I am dead. I am not moving.

What did I fail to do? I believed in the promises of God. I trusted Him.
Yet this happened.
I won in a way, and things were different when I left. Changes were made in the environment.
The battle was won, but I died in the battle.
Praying about it, I was first encountered the story about how the Israelites were sent serpents when they did not appreciate what God had given them in the desert.
That was awful. Did I not appreciate what God had given me? I do not remember being that way. Maybe I did, but I do not remember?
I am supposed to put serpents under my feet.
The power of the enemy is not supposed to harm me.
I asked for bread, yet I got a serpent.
It was a victory for the Lord, in that some evil people were removed, but there were also some that remained.
It was a defeat for me, because my career was over, and I left sick.
Was this result what God intended for me?
It must be.
Because it happened according to what He said to me personally.
This experience does not appear to match with scripture that I know about , but must match up with scripture I have yet to understand.
Because of this experience, I am no longer in the world.
I am a recluse, and write only what God leads me to write.
When I died in the world, the world in me died also.
I am grateful for my death in the world.
Someday, I will be surrounded with angels and the beauty of heaven, and all this sorrow will be behind me.
I am now here for others.
So, in general, we trample on scorpions and snakes, and have power over the enemy…
However, it can be God’s purpose to use them to draw us out of a world that is evil, and to let them sting us, so we have a true reality of evil, and pull away from it.
In all this, my soul was untouched.
The evil hurt who I was in the world, but could not hurt who I was with God.
There was blood on my dress from all the attacks, but I still had on my bridal gown.
And Yeshua / Jesus was, and is, still my Savior.
