This may seem strange to those who have never experienced it, but many people have related the phenomenon to me about evil spirits feeding them or offering food in dreams. I was surprised how common this seems to be. It’s interesting that people from many parts of the world have experienced this. Some have shared with me the evil spirits will try to trick them into eating whatever food they have.
What does it mean when an evil spirit tries to feed you food in a dream? I don’t know for certain. But what is obvious is that it can’t be a good thing! Absolutely nothing good comes from satan’s kingdom. Satan’s ultimate goal is to kill, steal, and destroy (Jn. 10:10).
I asked other deliverance ministers, who have far more years of experience than I do, about the meaning of evil spirits offering food to people. They both said it means they are feeding false doctrine. I don’t know what they said is true or not but, nevertheless, I find it interesting.
In the Bible God’s angels fed Ezekiel and John a scroll or book as food as God’s word is like food for the soul. The Bible also reads God’s word is true, as God cannot lie (Jn. 17:17; Titus 1:2). After they ate they were to speak God’s word as commanded:
“3 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel.2 So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll.3 And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness. And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.” – Ezekiel 3:1-4
“8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. 9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. 10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. 11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.” – Revelation 10:8-11
The following are scriptures where God’s word is likened to food:
“6 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.” – 1 Tim. 4:6
“2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:” – 1 Pet. 2:2
“I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.” – 1 Cor. 3:2
“But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” – Heb. 5:14
“4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” – Matt. 4:4
We know satan likes to counterfeit God’s kingdom. So if we flip the meaning or purpose of feeding “food” to Ezekiel and John for consumption, it could be very possible that the food these evil spirits want to feed people in dreams could be the devil’s “word”: false doctrine or lies (as opposed to God’s word which is truth). If that is indeed the case, are you sure the teachers or preachers you are listening to teach what is really Biblical? The enemy wants people to believe in lies to pull them further away from God, and that could be somehow related to being fed food in dreams.
Again, whether it is the case or not I am uncertain. But the important thing is, if you can help it, reject any food from any spirit you are suspect not being from God! Remember, the Bible reads to not believe every spirit, but to test the spirit (1 John 4:1; 1 Thess. 5:21).

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can receive Him into your heart, and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere, you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
