Journal Entry Date: April 12, 2013 Dream
In the dream, I was in a Jewish prayer and worship center in Jerusalem. I saw some Muslims men lying down on red cushioned prayer mats, just to the right of the Muslim men were a group of Jewish men praying and worshiping as well. One of the Jewish men went over and lovingly put his hand on one of the Muslim men’s shoulder, in an act of love, and prayed for him. The Muslim man took this action as an insult and his countenance changed to an expression of hate. The Jewish man did not notice the anger on the Muslim’s man face, since he was only focused only praying and worshipping God. The Muslim men got up and hurriedly walked out of the prayer center only to shortly return bringing many more men Muslims with him into the prayer center.
The Muslims stormed through the doors with their guns blazing. What was a tranquil and peaceful scene only moments earlier was now filled with the horrible slaughter of the innocent. Many Jews tried to escape using multiple exits only to find the prayer center was surrounded by Muslim women and children, waiting at the bottom of the steps with their guns drawn, ready to cut down anyone who tried to exit the building. Inside the bodies of Jewish men piled up quickly from the murderous fire.
The prayer center had two floors and the Jewish men tried to escape by running upstairs, away from the killing, only to find their selves trapped against the railing which overlooked the first floor. The Muslims fired into defenseless Jewish men, killing them all. Many fell over the railing, landing on the dead and dying bodies below.
After the slaughter was over, no one was left standing. The blood from the dead and wounded formed into one large pool as if it had been measured by God as a witness against those who had perpetrated this horrendous crime against humanity.
I noticed one Jewish man who had been shot multiple times, lying on the ground floor among dozens of other bodies. His face was covered in blood, but he was still alive. I recognized him as the Jewish man who had earlier lovingly laid his hand on his Muslim brother. He would be the only survivor of the massacre.
Some months after the massacre, I met the Jewish man who had laid hands on the Muslim man. He said to me, “When I was laying there on the floor, already wounded, bloody, my face covered in blood, they kept shooting me. They showed no mercy! They wanted me dead! They wanted us all dead because I wanted to extend God’s love to my Muslim brothers.”
He was such a gentle, harmless, loving man of God. After all he had been through; he remained true to God, true to love.
This dream needs no interpretation, only exhortation to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and God’s protection over the Jewish people. At some point in the future there will be a peace accord between the Muslims and Jews and a common prayer center will be established as a symbol of peace, but it will be a place of eventual slaughter. Israel be warned.
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you.”May peace be within your walls, And prosperity within your palaces.” For the sake of my brothers and my friends, I will now say, “May peace be within you.” For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your good. Ps. 122:6-9
