18 Adar 5772
In the previous post, I hinted that I think what started Friday night with the missile bombardment of the area including Ashdod, Ashqelon and Beersheva is the beginning of something bigger. Now, I'd like to explain why I believe that the Big War has already begun.
In the past, I wrote a few times on this blog about a dream I had involving missiles from Iran on the area from Ashkelon to Haifa at the full moon. If you missed it, you can read it here: In the Shadow of Iran
Well, according to Debka, the missiles being fired came from Iran and while today, they are only hitting Ashkelon, Ashdod and Beersheva, tomorrow they may be hitting Tel Aviv! Also, it was a very full moon.
But, that's not all. I had a series of dreams which I wrote about to friends and which I told to my family that corroborates it further. Here is how I described it on Sun, 16 Jan 2005:
For over a year I have been having a recurring dream.
It is always Erev Shabbat and I am always rushing too late to prepare for Shabbat. In the first dream, it is late morning and I realize I have no food to cook for Shabbat so I have to rush to get somewhere to buy food and then I am cut very, very short for time to prepare it. I barely make it. (This is not my experience in reality. I usually begin preparing two days ahead.)
In each dream, the circumstances are the same except that it gets later in the day each time. Each time, I note the time on the clock, 11 am, 1 pm, 3 pm, 5 pm. In the first few dreams while I have to rush, at least the stores are still open and I am able to get things, but it gets harder and harder. Maybe I get home with food, but it's too late to cook. Or the store is closing as I arrive and I can't begin to explain the feeling of desperation I experience in the dream.
The last dream I had like this happened maybe a month ago (Dec 2004). In the dream, it seemed like any day of the week, there was no indication that it was getting close to Shabbat, I was talking to someone without any care or worry and suddenly I hear this alarm (like the Shabbat warning) and I asked what it could be and the person I was talking to said, "It's Shabbat." I was in shock and devastated because I had no idea whatever that it was coming to Shabbat and I was not prepared. I had nothing ready. It shocked me that this time, I did not even realize what day of the week it was beforehand.
I have never had a dream that recurred so many times in almost exactly the same way just with differing details.
From a letter dated Tue, 22 Mar 2005:
I dreamed again. Or rather more like a nightmare. Same dream and it was like it took up where the last one left off. In the dream, my kids and I were waking up like from a nap (though none of us sleeps in the daytime) and discovered that it was ten minutes after five pm on Friday and nothing was yet prepared for Shabbat. I tried to make spaghetti in the forty minutes til sundown so we would have something, but it became a huge mess and it just couldn't be done. When the time was up, not only was there no Shabbat for us, but I felt that in trying to get ready so late, I might have actually broken Shabbat and been worse off than ever.
The dream was so distressing that I felt like I was fighting to regain consciousness just to bring it to an end and when I woke up I felt so hopeless like the message of the dream is that we're not ready and it's now too late. So if it's already too late, why have the dream, if it is supposed to be a warning or something? Then I realized that it's not Shabbat yet, we still have three days to get ready. It's not too late.
From a letter dated Thu, 23 Feb 2006:
I was just re-reading the last email I sent about this recurring dream I had been having and chills literally went up my spine. I had forgotten that the time on the clock in that dream was 5:10 and now nearly a year later, a year during which I had no such dreams, I had it again last night and the time on the clock was again 5:10 with an expectation of sundown at about 6 pm.
Here it is:
I'm waking up on a Friday, thinking I have overslept late into the morning and I discover that it is already 5:10 pm with less than an hour til Shabbat. In this dream, I'm telling everyone that the recurring dream I've been having about not being ready for Shabbat has now come true. (In the dream, I don't think I'm dreaming but I remember the other dreams.)
There is no food to cook and nothing has been prepared. I'm overwrought that it is so late and nothing prepared and all the stores surely closed and no time to cook even if I could buy something....
My clear sense upon awakening from the dreams has always been that Shabbat represents the impending Geula coming closer and closer and closer. Even though I am aware of it, when it comes, it will still be totally unexpected and at this present time, I am still not ready for it.
So, it was Erev Shabbat when the Shabbat alarm was to sound at 5:08 when this current round of hostilities was launched. (Please excuse the pun.)
Does all of this add up to this being the beginning of the end of the geula process? Well, we might just find out that the Purim rumor was true after all...
"...the Gog and Magog war will begin Purim 5772, and continue for two weeks leading up to Rosh Chodesh Nissan 5772....
I think there is every possibility that the current conflict will escalate beyond anything that anyone involved could imagine. This just in...
Gaza truce delayed. Egypt wants Sinai included. Tehran fuels violence
The combined Egyptian-Israeli-Hamas effort to negotiate an early ceasefire in the current round of Palestinian-Israeli violence struck several major obstacles Monday, March 12....Four days into the Gaza violence, this impasse has brought the mediation effort to a close.
...The breakdown of negotiations, such as they were, has led Israel to escalate its military pressure on Gaza and intensify its air strikes, in the hope of forcing Jihad Islami to stop the missile assaults on its cities.
But for now, its leaders show no sign of being beaten into accepting a truce and are unlikely to do so, so long as Tehran wants the violence to go on.
The Gaza confrontation is therefore evolving into a military clash between Israel and Iran.
...Unless these circumstances undergo a radical shift, the million Israelis confined to shelters have no reason to look forward to relief from the missile attacks on their homes and schools – quite the opposite: The conflict looks like escalating.
