This lucid-state dream encounter involved me casting evil spirits out of my "house". My "house", in the dream world, is commonly depicted as the old house I grew up in, from about age 5 to age 20. I believe (again: when engaging in warfare, during dreams) my house represents my own body (whether it be the physical nature or the soul nature).

The means in which I was casting them out was this: I would declare out-loud "I bind you in the name of Jesus!" or "I bind you with a three-fold cord!" (ref. Ecclesiastes 4:12). This was done in faith; and in response, the devils (departed spirits of the Nephilim) would, literally, then immediately be in a squatted down position and stationary -- as if being invisibly securely bound.
^ From here, I would then, simply enough, lift one of them up, walk out the front door onto the front porch -- and then give it a firm boot to the backside, out into the street!
The angels would assist me in this, when I called upon them (ref. Psalm 91). For instance, I would command them to open the front door for me, as I was carrying a demon spirit out toward the door. Also, as I recall, if I was dealing with two or more of them and needed an extra set of hands to help out, a devil would then be dragged off by an invisible set of helpers.
Now, concerning God's angels, my gift of discernment is not yet high enough to visibly see them assisting me. They are present, however, and do help me if called upon -- as long as it is a lawful command. It's all done in faith; and since I've experienced this occurring a good number of times now, I, certainly, have enough faith in trusting God and calling upon them!
[the 01/27/2017 dream entry (link embedded) explains a little more about my discernment]
The means in which I was testing them (according to I John 4:1) was this: I would first ask them "Did Jesus Christ come in the flesh?". Basically, If I received a "no" or anything besides a "yes" answer in response -- I would then proceed to evict them.
If I received a "yes" answer, I would then demand "Then declare it!". From here, if they didn't declare Jesus Christ; that is, if they didn't accurately state that He was God in the flesh, born of a virgin, walked this Earth sinless for 33 years, was crucified, was resurrected, and now sits on the right hand of God the Father in Heaven -- I would then proceed to evict them.
The chief reason why it is important to interrogate them is because they disguise themselves (ref. II Corinthians 11:14-15). From my experiences, altogether, in dealing with them, they have taken disguises of: friends, family, co-workers, celebrities, natural forms of people, animals -- basically any form that could deceive you and lull you into a deceived state.
(also, from my experiences, the sheer nature of operating in the dream world leaves one much more susceptible to deception, as it is. It can be all to easy to "fade" in and out of being lucid to being back in a "normal" dream state; where you're kind of in a haze, etc.)

So, back to the dream encounter, I was successful in binding up and casting out, I believe, every foul spirit that was with me in the living room portion of my old house...except for one.
After binding up that very last one, like all the others, I went toward it, lifted it up, and proceeded to go out toward the front door.
...oddly enough, the angels didn't get the door for me this time.
Nonetheless, I recall easily managing to open both the door and screen and proceeded to boot this one out; just like the others.
However -- not much long after getting booted out, it came right back in!
And I had even fully shut the front door and locked it! ...but, this being, just as easily as I had opened it, prior, opened it right back up and came back inside the living room (it was as if the dead-bolt lock wasn't ever there; all the evil spirit had to do was, literally, turn the door knob and it opened -- irregardless of that dead-bolt being latched).
As I recall, the devil didn't even really do anything else, after coming back in. No tormenting. No changing into something scary or disgusting. It, merely, went back over into the same general spot I recalled seeing it at in the living room...and proceeded to occupy it, once more.
That remaining devil, without a doubt, is possessing some kind of legal right to me (basically, unrepented of sin gives an evil spirit the right to continue occupying a person). I contemplated this briefly, upon waking up, and -- in the very process of my thinking this over in my mind -- I had the inner-urging within me to seek out God in prayer, in order for Him to tell me what this is.
So...that's simple enough!
Time to spend some quality time with the Lord, in prayer!
Grace and peace multiplied. May this entry be edifying to many, in their walks with Christ.
