The Messiah Dream – December 13, 1983
I started walking through B’nai Israel synagogue calling for Moses. I believe I needed to find him because I wanted not so much as to warn him and the others, but tell him that the flood was coming. I came to the main worship auditorium and looked up to where the Ark was located. I saw a crack, just at that moment, run down the left side of the structure. I kept calling for Moses.
I then came across this one group of people standing in a circle and Rabbi Simon was with them. They were holding a long white felt banner with red felt letters that said something about Jesus. They were singing songs about Jesus too.
I knew they were Jews. I said, “You’re not supposed to be doing this, you’re Jewish!”
They just smiled at me and pointed into the larger area of the auditorium. I passed the first group and saw that there were many small groups doing the same thing. I smiled and began jumping up and down with gladness because I now realized they knew what I was talking about and who Jesus was. I began hugging everyone and kept running around until I found the Rabbi so that I could hug him too.
Interpretation of dream:
Moses represented the giving of the law.
The flood had reference to Noah and a great change that would occur.
Water also represents a cleansing.
The crack symbolizes a change in the synagogue.
The coming flood will be the veil lifted from the eyes of the Jews and the Jewish people will know their Messiah.
Key Bible verses:
II Corinthians 3:14 “But their minds were blinded, for until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ.”
II Corinthians 3:15-16 “But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. Nevertheless, when one turns to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away.”
Isaiah 35:5 & 10 “Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then the lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the dumb sing. For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert . . . And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with singing, with everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.”

This dream was given to me while visiting my sister in Pennsylvania. I wrote it out by hand and later that day the meaning was given to me through scripture. According to my understanding of this scripture, a veil is covering the eyes of the Jews who now worship on the Sabbath. Through God’s miracle and at the appointed time, He will remove this veil from their eyes. The Hebrew word is tardemah – a deep sleep, lethargy or trance. A puzzling question is has God actually placed the Jewish nation in a “deep sleep” until the appointed time all these years? I leave you to answer that question for yourself. This issue will be dealt with in my article called, “Veil over the Eyes of Judah.”
I had been in attendance at Beth Messiah Synagogue for several years. Visitors were always welcome and I became friends with several Jewish people. This synagogue is special because these folks came to believe through reading and studying the scriptures that Jesus is actually the true Jewish Messiah. I also became involved and a frequent visitor at a conservative synagogue in Rockville. I felt drawn to this particular one because there seemed to be the benefit of learning and studying about the heritage of the Jews, their background, how they lived then and now, and what happened to them during the tragic holocaust.
After recording this dream, a few months later, I felt the need to do a study on the Prophet Elijah. I was welcome by Rabbi Matthew Simon at B’nai Israel Congregation and used their library extensively. When the library closed at certain times, permission was granted to continue research during these off hours. This was beneficial for me to pull out all the books needed and leave them on the table as I moved from one book to another, scoping out what was necessary for documentation. Of course, then shelving all the books when I finished for the day. In addition, paramount to study, is receiving this quiet time in order to think through what I needed to tackle next. The library was peaceful during these off hours and I appreciated the trust given to me on those days.
Some of this information is taken from my previous personal research paper regarding the “Prophet Elijah and the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel.” It was originally written to document and prove the coming of Elijah (through scripture and cross-referencing) revealing the Messiah.
This issue will be addressed in detail in the next article with this title. As I point out in the book of Luke 1:17 we read, “And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias (Elijah), to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just: to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” I then cross-reference to Malachi 3:1, “Behold I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me.” This issue will be addressed in detail in the next article with the above title.
Here is a provocative question. Can we recognize the coming of a person known as the Prophet Elijah? I am not speaking of the Elijah of the Old Testament, but of one molded by years of pain and suffering, tested in the fire beyond endurance at times, refusing to give up. This prophet seasoned by hardships of living experiences will come in spirit and power, as was the previous prophet. This modern day Elijah will be the forerunner of the Second Coming of Jesus, as John the Baptist was the forerunner for the first coming of Jesus.
