A dream about December 18, 2009
I have had this note posted on my stove fan for the past few years. All because of a dream.
In the summer of 2007, I had been discouraged because I had been laid off from my job since 2006. I was also feeling sick, and taking medicine, which also made me sick. I went to sleep that night, wondering about my future, and had a dream.
In it, I met a man who told me that I had a wonderful future, and then something about 938 days.
He also told me something personal that I will not reveal. It is something positive. If that comes true, that would be a confirmation.
*** I did not write the dream details down right away as I should. It may have been 968 days.
When I woke up, I laughed. Being told you have a wonderful future when you lose your job seems strange. I had already had another dream telling me that “the job is dead,” indicating, to me, that I would not get another job. So the future was going to be “money free,” I thought.
On top of that, I was having medical problems that were crippling me, and reducing the quality of my life.
Being told the other secret thing I thought was crazy. I laughed at that too.
But anyhow, I got out my calendar and counted 938 days ahead in the future. I ended up on December 15, 2009.
That date meant nothing to me.
Somehow, I decided that meant that whatever I was going through would be over on that date. I wrote the date down, and posted it on the stove fan above my stove.
I kept myself busy, looking for jobs, and realized that was going nowhere. This is still true today, 2 years later. So the one dream was right about the job situation being dead. The dead job situation was enhanced by the recent stock market crash in 2008, where I watched my State Retirement Account, that I can finally have in 2010, drop to my ankles.
So far, the future was not “wonderful” so far.
To use my time in a productive manner, I also revived a dead blog I had ignored, and worked on that. I had been in discussion groups about religion, and found myself answering the same questions over and over.
Since I got tired of typing, I decided to put these answers on my blog, and then just give a link when a question came up.
This is when Heaven Awaits really was “born,” which has been such a blessing to me. Finally, something positive !
So that is wonderful.
In the meantime, I have been successful in identifying, and solving, my own medical problems, since the “health care providers” do not think past 5 minutes when you visit them.
So that is better.
And, God kept providing for me while I was out of work. So that is really neat.
Now, I am on the last 6 month stretch of the 938 days.
I looked up what would be so significant about the date December 18, 2009.
I found general things about this date:
48th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control
and 28th Chinese Control Conference
General Christmas/ Winter holiday time
But then, I found these facts more interesting:
Esther made Queen (362 BCE) on this date in Jewish history
7th day of Hanukah – time of miracles
Al-Hijra – 1st Muharramn (Islamic New Year) December 18, 2009
When I count back from December 18, 2009, 3 ½ years, I end up on the date I was laid off.
3 ½ years to me is significant. Maybe that man in the dream was trying to tell me something more. He gave me a mystery to solve.
3 ½ years is the time of Jacob’s trouble. It is also predicted in Revelation 12 that the “Woman” flees to the wilderness for 3 ½ years, or 1260 days.
So, looking back, I have been assigned to a 3 ½ year wilderness experience.
I have been hidden from the world, away from most people, and focusing on my relationship with God.
The fruit of this experience is my blog, Heaven Awaits. In the isolation, there is revelation, which I share with others.
Looking forward, what will happen in December, if this pattern is true?
Esther becomes Queen! She comes out of preparation, out of hiding, and saves her people!
*** her Hebrew name “Hadassah,” means hidden
The Bride becomes the Wife during a time of miracles (Hanukkah) !
Esther was called for “such a time as this” when her people were in danger of extinction.
She was in the land of Persia, which is Iran today.
Today, Esther has another “such time” as Iran’s government pushes to destroy her once again.
Islam starts a New Year on this same date. What are the plans against Esther and her people for this New Year?
While this dream may not be prophetic at all, so far, certain things have come to pass for me personally.
But, maybe, if this dream has any spiritual significance, it is to awaken the Esters of the world to prepare herself to come out of hiding, out of the wilderness, and become Queen!
For those who have been in the wilderness of the spirit, away from others, or away from fellowship, wondering if they had any value in this world, but hidden away, and alone with God……
It may be that by the end of this year, if not sooner, it will be time to take your rightful place in the court of the King, and intercede for your people, Israel.
Then Haman’s plot will be stopped. And Israel will live. And Messiah will come.
How Esther acts now will influence not only the safety of the people Israel for the next 3 ½ years, but it will affect Esther herself.
Will she perish, missing her “time,” or will she step up as Queen and intercede to her King?
