“The lamp of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was lying down in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was. Then the LORD called Samuel, and he said, “Here I am!” 1 Samuel 3:4

When Samuel was still a small boy, he had his first supernatural experience with God in the heart of midnight hour, the heart of the midnight hour is between 3am and 6am. We can know this by the word itself, “The lamp of God had not yet gone out –“. When the priests went into the temple, they kept the lamps in the area of the candlesticks burning, those lamps would burn until they eventually would be put out – near morning. It was near the morning twilight (which is between 3am-6am) that the lamps were still lit. It was at this time that the spirit of God came to the young prophet Samuel and spoke to him.

Many wonder why 3am? What is it about 3am that God seems to work supernaturally within the life of a believer, either through dreams or visions or even personal visitations? 3 is the number of the trinity, the Godhead which consists of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit – the triune. 3 is also the time where Christ was crucified and died before 3:30. It is this time that the veil between our world and the other realm is the most thinnest. This is why that not only does God work in many a persons life or calling, but also Satan equally is at work – the witching hour, as many call it.

Essentially, Transition often occurs at these hours of 3-4pm. In this I am referring to when Demons increasing in numbers, moving from infestation to oppression stages, or onto possession’s first stage, etc. This is why in many occult circles, 3am is equally a time frame where those involved in witchcraft as well as Satanism partakes in many of the rituals because of the supernatural significance this time of hour brings. It must be understood that Satan is constantly attempting to mock God in every aspect to what God deems holy. So it should not come as a surprise when Satan imitates the hour where God works among his children.

In my own life I can point to a time where in many of the prophetic words God has either spoken to me in my spirit, or where I was given a dream or vision, it always was around 3am, sometimes it might be between 3-6am, but yet consistently, it was during this particular time frame that God worked prophetically in my life.

I have known where Christians have experienced great spiritual trials and temptations which have occurred at this time just before dawn, and it was always consistent with these things happening at 3am. So why does God work with many, or allow some to be tested at such a time of 3am? I believe it all goes back to the cross. The moment or hour God used was set for a specific purpose (3) it is symbolic of who God is, who Christ is, who his Holy Spirit is. It is symbolic of the very nature of God. When Christ died between 3pm-3:30pm, it was sealed for eternity, and a period of time began to be used, I believe, as a complete reflection of the cross. Even before the cross, God spoke to young Samuel at this period of time, it pointed to the cross. So when God speaks or gives a vision or dream, it not only is to give one a message to what God is trying to tell us, it is also, at the core, a shadow to point us right back to what occurred at this time – the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

So the next time you receive a late night word from God, a dream or vision, or when the enemy comes to attack you while you are asleep, it’s safe to say that if you wake up after it’s over with, you’ll see that the hour in which you had this experience was between 3am-6am – the shadow of the cross.

    As a psychologist who has given the MMPI (the most intensive personality test for adults) psychologists do not trust priests. Worse yet, priests do not trust psychologists. What a shame! as both need to address this paranormal area (and yes evil really exists). Many of the ways you folks mention do work but many are not the most effective or vague. Another area not mentioned here is called “sleep paralysis” which both psychologist and priests do not know enough about. It effects even those awake or partially awake. I did not read all the posts so maybe some of you have had this terrifying experience.

    The appearance of an animal is also one of the experiences designed to scare, confuse or wear you down. 3 am is a factor as is moon cycles. Ask people who work in hospitals about moon cycles.

    I dealt with evil for about 5 years and managed to find about 4 local priests that are more knowledgeable than most priests. Since the church does not use exorcists, having such “second level” experts in my area is a godsend. Usully such priests tend to practical, middle aged and have
    more experience than younger ones.

    Once again many of you are on the right track. God provides tools but evil will come back to double check on you.

    I just wanted to offer a few comments. Stay religious. Avoid devil worship and sexual deviations. God sometimes let the devil attack if God wants to give you a second chance at heaven. The devil does not attack some “bad” people because he already has them – so why waste his time on earth.

    God bless you all! Truly walk in the footsteps of Jesus Mathew Chapter 25 Ver 31-46.

    I have awakened between 3:00-3:15 am my entire life. For many years I experienced spiritual warfare with a few revving dreams. Always the same dreams of me falling, being attacked or consumed by the evil one. I know I’m dreaming and I call out to God, rebuking my attacker, in the name of Jesus. Then the hand of God just scoops men right out of the clenches of evil. I have been attacked by what I think may be a succubus. I am awake,/asleep sort of. I’ve been attacked in many ways. Always saved by the hand of God. In the name of Jesus. I decided to google tonight. In hopes of understanding the meaning behind my awakening at such a specific time. This night I cannot sleep at all. Thank you for your writing.

    Wow! This explains so much for me. For the past 2-3 years I have woke up 3am sharp not knowing why. I have these dreams that I can fly not with wings but by simply squatting down and leaping upward and soaring freely to new heights. I could see below and I’ve always used caution with each leap. I am still not sure what this means however I am always very comfortable and it’s satisfying whenever I have this dream. I would love to know more about why and what this is that’s happening.

    Thank you for that insight. I just was attacked by the enemy in my sleep! I couldn’t say anything except in the name of Jesus over and over until I came out of it and started declaring the word of God!
