Matthew 13 vs. 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
These are the words of our Lord Jesus Christ and there are several lessons we can learn from this passage:
- The first lesson we learn from this passage is that there is an enemy.
- The second lesson is that the enemy comes when we are sleeping
- The third lesson we learn from this passage is that Christians sleep too much, and that is the greatest lesson from this passage. Jesus Christ describes Christian as men. Men are supposed to watch and pray, Men are supposed to be alert, not sleeping and snoring.
- The third lesson is that enemy comes to pollute and contaminate the spirit of man.
- The fourth lesson is that the enemy comes to cause confusion, to waste opportunities, to deposit strange object into people.
- The fifth lesson is that the enemy has some evil powers, because Jesus Christ says that the enemy came and sowed wild weeds.
Who are the enemies that Jesus Christ is talking about in this passage?
- The enemies that Jesus Christ is talking about are powers that resume duties at 12 mid nights to 4am that is why they are called dark powers.
- The enemies that Jesus Christ is talking about are are evil spirits. They are not your parents, your neighbours or friends that offended you at home or in the office. The enemy Jesus refers to are not flesh and blood but evil spirits.
- The enemies that Jesus Christ is talking about are the adversaries of any person that calls himself a Christian. Every Christian must know that he has an enemy. So if you are in the type of Christian that believes every one is your friend, then you must be a big joker because Jesus Christ Himself said that there is an enemy that visits at night. God himself has an enemy.
- The enemy that Jesus Christ is talking about is no other person than Satan and his emissaries. The Bible describes his agents as principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, and spiritual forces of darkness. They agents of the enemy are the demons, witches and wizards, marine spirits and occult powers.
Jesus Christ said that every time se sleep, these enemies come to sow evils in our life. It is therefore important to investigate further the works of these enemies and the kinds of evils they, to enable use deal with them decisively?The enemies Jesus Christ is talking about could be called satanic mid-wives. They terminate pregnancies, and are responsible for miscarriages, unexplainable sudden deaths of mother and child during child labour, they are also responsible for prolonged pregnancy, delayed labour, prolonged labour, still birth and hard child birth. Have you ever slept with a pregnancy and woke up with a miscarriage? You must have been visited by these satanic mid wives at night.
The enemies Jesus is talking about could be called Night caterers. They feed people with bread of affliction and water of sorrow at night. Have you ever experienced attending a party and fed with a delicious meal in a dream? Have you ever seen yourself being forced to take a drink in a dream? You must have been visited by the enemy Jesus Christ mentioned. The purpose of these Night caterers is to pollute or contaminate your spirit man, to deposit strange objects or sponsor sicknesses into your spirit man.
The enemies Jesus is talking about could be called Oppressive spirits. Have you ever been pinned down in a dream? Have ever been squeezed and oppressed in a dream to the extent that you were gasping for breath? These are the works of the enemy Jesus Christ is talking about. The ministry of oppressive spirits is to instill fear, harass, intimidate and possible terminate the life of Christians prematurely. If you have heard the stories of someone that shouted and cried while sleeping, the oppressive spirits must have claimed a victim.
There are evil initiators. They specialized in initiating people in evil association such as witchcraft, marine spirit, and occultic spirit. Have you ever experienced an invitation when you are sleeping? Have you ever found yourself in strange meeting when you are sleeping? Have you ever experience some powers asking you to pronounce a number or a name when you are sleeping? These are the enemies Jesus Christ is talking about.
Spirit wife and spirit husband. The enemies Jesus Christ is talking about are the spirit wife and husband. They are the powers that sexually molest and harass people when they are sleeping. They are the strange lovers, the spirit boy friends and girl friends, and the unfriendly friends, unknown lovers in the spirit realm.
Have you ever experienced when you are sleeping and God opened your eyes that you suddenly see somebody undressing you? Have you ever experienced when you are sleeping, and find somebody romancing you and before you can say Jesus is Lord, you have masturbated? Have you ever experienced wet dreams caused by unusual sexual desire when you are sleeping? Have you ever experienced forced sexual intercourse when you are sleeping?
It reminds me of a story of a sister, who told me her pathetic story that on every same day of every month, at same time of that same day, there is always a power that she cannot resist coming to molest her sexually. And that is the enemy Jesus Christ is talking about. Their mission is to pollute the spirit of Christians. Their mission is to destroy relationships and marriages. I have found a sister that every time a man wants to marry her, suddenly the man will say he’s no more interested. So they are the cause of marriage breakdowns, cause of unexplainable quarrels in courtship leading to breakdown.
If you are a sister and you have been experiencing sexual molestation and embarrassment, then you have to know how to deal with the enemy.
The night visitors that Jesus Christ was talking about could also be referred as the unfriendly friends. These are the people that come at night showing you dreams or giving you message to deceive you.
The unfriendly friends are the people that come to you to give you strange gift during your sleep. Have you ever slept and see yourself discussing with strange faces, you have to beware because they are the enemies Jesus Christ mention that is out to deceive you.
The enemy Jesus mentioned in Mathew 13 vs 25 could also be called Satanic Nurses. Their mission is to inject strange objects into the bodies of Christians while they are sleeping. They inject serpentine spirits into the bodies of christians when they are sleeping. Have you ever slept and found yourself being given an injection in a dream? Have you ever woke up and experience strange objects moving up and down your body? Have you ever woke up and find serpentine spirits crawling around your body? Most likely the Satanic nurses have visited you while you slept.
Another category of the enemy Jesus mentioned in Mathew 13 vs 25 could also be called wasting powers. Their mission is to waste destinies, waste opportunities and keep people in stagnancies. These wasters of opportunities are the enemies of breakthroughs, hindrances to success, and clogs in the wheel of progress. They monitor and block the progress of Christians. Have you slept at night and found out that when you are about to get a blessing and somebody else replaced you on the queue? If you dreamt and you find a door closing as you are about to come in, if you dreamt and you find a blockade, wall or mountain that you cannot climb, then you could have been visited by the wasting powers.
Another category of these night visitors manifest as python spirits. Their mission is to oppress people at night and strike fear into the minds of Christians. Have you ever slept at night and experienced a long snake pursuing you? Have you ever slept at night and experienced a snake squeezing around your body, pushing you violently until you woke up in fear? These are the enemy that Jesus Christ mentioned that come to visit when you are sleeping.
The next category of night visitors could be called killing powers. These are enemies who are sent to fulfill the satanic ministry of John 10:10- stealing, killing and destroying. Have you ever slept at night and saw bullets fired at you? Have you ever slept and saw yourself being hunted by assassins? You need to pray to prevent the manifestation of the dream. The objective of the killing powers is to terminate the lives of Christians. You need to kill them before they kill you.
The eleventh category of the enemy Jesus Christ is talking about could be described as spiritual robbers who are out to steal people’s opportunities and to steal people’s blessings and breakthroughs. Have you ever slept and see you somebody snatching your a pen, a key, money, your wife or husband, or your child from your hands? Have you ever slept at night and find dark powers snatching something from you and giving it to somebody else? That is the handiwork of the spiritual rubbers, so you need to wake up to posses your possessions, you need to wake up to pursue over and recover all the spiritual robber have stolen from you in the spirit realm, otherwise, it may manifest.
Another category of the enemy Jesus Christ referred to could be described as Paralyzing powers. They visit christians at night, weaken their spiritual battery and paralyze their spiritual power. The ministry of the night hunters is to put an embargo on the prayer life of christians. Have you ever woken up in the morning and find it difficult to pray, to fast or to read the Bible? Most likely, you have just been visited by these paralyzing powers.
Another category of the enemy Jesus Christ referred to could be described as mad spirits. These are the categories of powers that have fiercely determined to work against the breakthrough of Christians. These are powers that are bold and courageous enough to challenge God just like Pharaoh said, “Who is the God of Israel that I should obey Him”. Have somebody ever confronted you in the dream and told you that no matter how hard you try, you will never succeed, never marry, never bear a child or never receive an expected breakthrough? These are the mad spirits and you have to deal with them with prayer and fasting.
Another category of the enemy Jesus Christ referred to in Matthew 13:25 could be called marking spirits and their ministry is to put a marker of disfavour and failure in the life of christians. God said in Exodus 12:13 that He will put a mark the houses of the children of Israel so that evil shall pass over them, but the work of evil markers is to place a mark of failure on children of God. Have you every slept at night and woke up in the morning to find strange marks on your body or even on your clothes? You must have been visited by these evil marker and you need to invoke the blood of Jesus Christ and mark yourself for success, favour, and breakthrough in Jesus name.
Another category of the enemy Jesus Christ referred to could be described as satanic military policemen who stand at the gate to disallow people from entering their breakthroughs.
- The ministry of the satanic military policemen is to ensure that the helpers of Christians do not locate them.
- The ministry of satanic military policemen is to drive away those coming to give you a blessing.
- The ministry of satanic military policemen is to stop Christian from entenring the gates of their breakthroughs.
Have you ever slept at night and saw yourself being pursued by soldiers? Have you ever slept at night and you saw a uniform person preventing you from entering a door? Then you must have been visited by the satanic military police and you need to arrest them in the name of Jesus.
Another category of the enemy Jesus Christ referred to could be described glory shavers. Your glory means your success. The hair on your head signifies your glory. There are some dark power that specializes in stealing the glory of people. There are some dark powers that specializes in shaving off the glory of people. Have you ever slept at night and found a power shaving off your hair by force? Have you ever slept and you experienced a dark power pressing down your head? Then the Glory shavers are at work.
Another category Jesus Christ is talking about are the vision killers. The ministry of the vision killers is to project into the future using occult and witchcraft powers and see your future. Thereafter, they will attempt to terminate the glorious destiny that God has prepared for you. Joseph was a victim of these vision killers and he spent many years in slavery and in prison because he was not wise enough to keep his mouth shut when God showed him his glorious future. Have you ever slept at night and saw yourself inside a latrine, inside a mud, a pit, prison or inside a river? These are the works of vision killers and you need to wake up and pray and reclaim your vision.
Another category of people Jesus Christ talked about in Matthew 13:25 could be called limiting powers. These are the powers that tell you how far you can go in life. They determine where to put a comma or full stop in your life advances. They are the powers that tell you cannot become a rich man because your father and grandfather lived and died as poor men. These are the forces that resist you anytime you are about to move forward. Have you ever slept and dreamt a force pressing you down any time you want to rise up? Have you dreamt and saw a barrier that you found difficult to overcome? Have you ever experienced a situation in which no matter how hard you try, you always find it difficult to go beyond a particular point? These are the limiting powers that you need to deal with.

Their ministry is to come and broadcast evil. Have you ever slept in your dream and started hearing voices telling you about death, accident, sickness? Have someone related to you negative dreamson you? These are the evil broadcasters that are visiting you and you need to wake up and pray about it.
Another category of people Jesus Christ talked about in Matthew 13:25 could be called Prayer swallowers and their ministry is to stop the prayers of Christians from being answered. These are the kind of powers that withstood Daniel’s prayers for 21 years and stopped the angel of God from bringing answers to the prayers. Have you ever prayed very hard and you slept; and instead of receiving ministrations on answers to your prayers, what you experienced was satanic oppressions? Then the prayer swallowers are at work and you need to arrest them in the name of Jesus Christ
