THE DREAMS AND THE REALITY
compiled by Dee Finney
|In Christian belief, Jesus Christ is the Son of God, one third of the Blessed
Trinity which comprises himself, his Father, and the Holy Spirit. Sent to Earth to atone for the awful sins
of mankind, Jesus was born in the town of Bethlehem,
to mortal parents by virginal birth, known to Christians as 'the Immaculate Conception'. His mother on Earth was
Mary, his father Joseph.
Mary was elevated to the status of Queen of Heaven
after Jesus' death, while Joseph was made a saint.
In John 7, the Jews are discussing the origin of the Messiah. Because he grew up in Nazareth, they assumed he did not come from Bethlehem: "Does not scripture say that the Christ must be descended from David and come from the town of Bethlehem? So the people could not agree about him.
5-7-92 DREAM - I was in a corner windowed room that had brown shades on the narrow windows. There was a man standing in one window so close to the glass he looked like he was part of it. I recognized him as a past preacher of mine.
As I pulled up the shades to let the light in and to see the view, one of the shades had a long message written on it. The name that was repeated in many of the sentences was Jesse. I knew that the message shouldn't be hidden from the world and that I should copy it on the computer for distribution. I wasn't able to print it out immediately on that computer, so I sat on a street corner and began to type it as traffic went by.
(Jesse means 'wealthy) or (Jesse - Firm, or a gift, a son of Obed, the son of Boaz and Ruth (Ruth 4:17,22; Matthew 1:5,6; Luke 3:32). He was the father of eight sons, the youngest of whom was David (1 Samuel 17:12). The phrase "stem of Jesse" is used for the family of David (Isaiah 11:1), and "root of Jesse" for the Messiah (Isaiah 11:10; Revelation 5:5). Jesse was a man apparently of wealth and position at Bethlehem (1 Samuel 17:17,18,20; Psalms 78:71). The last reference to him is of David's procuring for him an asylum with the king of Moab (1 Samuel 22:3).
12-15-98 - DREAM - THE CHRISTMAS LIGHT - (When I went to bed last night, and turned off the light, I noticed a bright light shining on my pillow right where I was going to lay my head. I must have seen this light hundreds of times before because it was the light from the yard across the street on a tall pole. We have one of those big blue lights too...perched high on the house that comes on automatically when it gets dark outside and shines in every direction to provide us all with a sense of safety. Our light shines into our neighbor's yards like our neighbors light shines into ours. During the night, our outside world is bathed in a blue glow from those lights. Out neighbors, in turn also have these large blue lights. Our world is never dark.)
When I closed my eyes after my head lay gently on my pillow, I immediately saw a web page titled "The Christmas Light". The houses and trees in our neighborhood these days is all aglow with multiple white and colored lights festooned everywhere and people drive around to see each other's Christmas lights. But the original Christmas had it's own blue light, "The Star of Bethlehem".
The web page I was seeing then showed me a photograph of a Hindu man, holding in his arms a baby ... not the baby Jesus, but a 7 headed being with a skinny body. It was most grotesque to see. I wondered what that had to do with the Christmas light. I came to find that there was indeed a 7 headed being responsible for our creation, and without it there would be no Christmas light. I presented this page here:
I went to the bathroom and these two words boomed into my head by an unknown male voice.
NOTE: SOL INVICTUS is the name of the Sun God worshipped before Christ. It was part of the symbolism in the religion of Mithras. Constantine, in the 300 A.D. wanted to get along with the Christians but didn't accept Christianity until he was on his deathbed. Constantine had the symbol of Sol Invictus on the reverse side of the Roman Coins.
Timothy McVeigh also used Sol Invictus in a poem read when he was put to death. Sol Invictus means "the Unconquered Sun".
From John Leary:
Sunday, June 24, 2001: (St. John the Baptist)
Jesus said: "My people, I draw your attention to the infancy of Moses and My own infancy as we both were called to be ‘deliverers’. Moses was called to deliver his people from the Egyptians and I was called by My Father to be the Savior and Redeemer of all mankind from their sins. Moses was placed in the water to save his life from the decree to kill all the Hebrew boys. As an infant, My parents had to take Me to Egypt to save My life from Herod who had all the young boys killed in Bethlehem. Many parallels occurred with the manna in the desert and the Bread of Life I have given you in My Eucharistic Host. Every child has a mission and a plan from God for their lives. That is why abortion is such a dreadful sin because it takes a life and thwarts God’s plan for that life. Every new life is so important to protect them from harm, because you do not know what God has in store for that life. Preserve life in all of its stages because each life is a unique part of creation."

Jesus said: "My people, this sand storm is a lot like life where you must withstand the many tests of life to keep your faith in Me. Many times you are blinded by the desires of comforts and pleasures of the world. Even today with the launch of your Christmas shopping season, the world of materialism is blowing its sands of desire in your face. There are three tests of lust, pride, and greed for money or possessions that everyone must face. Unless you stop at My oasis of prayer and grace of My sacraments, you will not be able to endure these temptations of the evil one. Most of your sins are rooted in these earthly passions, but you are a person of body and soul and your spiritual nature should be attracted to more spiritual goals than those of the body. As you prepare physically for buying gifts at Christmas, you should also prepare your spiritual gifts of mercy for the infant child of Bethlehem."
Jesus said: "My people, this war on terrorism is being slowly dragged out with continuous bombing of the Taliban positions. There has been some dramatic progress in the fighting, but the remaining holdouts may be harder to find, let alone finding Bin Laden. This war will begin to suffer from war expenses and possible loss of life. The more lives that are lost, the less popular this war will become. The goals of this war need to be more specific and decisions to go after other countries could cause support for this war to waver. Pray that this war will come to a quick end before it could spread into a wider war with other countries or between various
religions. I have told you before that if this war spreads, it could be the beginning of the coming tribulation. Be faithful in reaching out to save souls because you are in a great battle for souls as I will be coming to cleanse the earth of all sin."
2000-SEP-21: Dan Millar, mentioned above, estimates this date as that of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Four events happen on that day, a Thursday. The sidereal day is reset. It is also the Jewish New Year, using the Canaanite calendar that was in use within ancient Israel prior to the Babylonian Captivity. It is the time of the Jewish "Feast of Jubilees" according to a message given by the Virgin Mary to Father Stefan Gobbi. This feast occurs only once every fifty years. This date is also the Autumn Equinox.
2000-MAY-31: The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in front of Taurus and the coming back of the Star of Bethlehem like 7.B.C. Some people expect a supernatural event comparable to the birth of Jesus.
2000-DEC-25: According to the 1997-JUN-24 issue of Sun Magazine Pope John XXIII predicted in 1962 that Christ would appear in the sky over New York City. He will announce the creation of a 1000-year paradise, to be proceeded by six months of great sorrow.

The Egyptians had a name for the body as the locus of transformations,
which carry the central meaning of all theologies. This name now rises out of the dim mists of ancient Egyptian
books to enlighten all modern Bible comprehension. This city of the body, where the sun of soul sank to its death
on the cross of matter, to re-arise in a new birth, was called the city of the sun, or in Greek,
The name is obviously made up of NU, the name for the mother heaven,
or empty space, or abyss of nothingness, and Alpha privative, meaning, as in thousands of words, "not."
A-NU would then mean
This is astonishing enough in all conscience, but it yields in wonder
to the next datum of Comparative Religion which came to our notice as a further tie between the Bible and antecedent
Egyptian mythology. Who can adequately measure the seriousness of the challenge which this item of scholarship
presents to Gospel historicity? For a discovery of sensational interest came to light when a passage was found
in the Book of the Dead which gave to Anu the characteristic designation, "the place of multiplying
bread"! Here in the long silent tomes of old Egypt was found the original, the prototype, of the miracle
of the loaves and the fishes in the Gospels of Christianity. And a meaning never before apprehended had to be read
into this New Testament wonder. At last we were instructed to catch in the miracle the sense that the physical
body, as A-NU, was the place where the corpus of the Christ’s deific power was broken into an infinite number of
fragments and distributed out among a multitude of creatures, enhungered after a
three-days’ fast, or deprivation of the food of spiritual life in their sojourn in the three kingdoms, the mineral,
vegetable and animal, before reaching the plane of mind. Here are all the elements of the inner meaning of the
Christian Eucharist: the broken but multiplied fragments of the body of the god, distributed to feed hungry humanity.
And as humanity is composed of twelve groups of divine conscious units, there were gathered up twelve baskets of
fragments! And this episode of the Christ’s ostensible life is found to be Egyptian in origin and meaning and symbolic
But new implications arise and lead us on to more startling disclosures.
The Hebrews came along and appropriated Egyptian material. They picked up the name ANU and fitting it back into
its zodiacal setting as Virgo, they called it the "house of Bread." This required their adding to ANU
their word for "house," which, as anyone knows, is Beth. This yields us Beth-Anu. Now it is a
fact of common philological knowledge that the ancient Greek and Egyptian "U" is rendered as "Y"
when the words are brought over into English. The "U" became a "Y," and Beth-Anu now stands
before us as the Bethany of the Gospels! Bethany is thus just the sign of Virgo, as the "house of Bread,"
the home of the great star Spica, the head of wheat!
But let us say "house of Bread" in ordinary Hebrew. What further astonishment strikes us here, as we find it reads Beth-Lehem (Lechem, Lekhem), for lechem, lekhem, is bread in everyday Hebrew. The Christ was born in Bethany or Bethlehem, the astrological "house of Bread." (Later it seems that the two signs, Virgo and Pisces, and their symbols, bread and fish, were almost interchangeably confused or commingled in the symbolic imagery. This was natural, since the two signs represented the same body of man in its two aspects of dying and being reborn, and the two processes are confusedly interblended.)
Some say: Star of Bethlehem was a spaceship. Bethlehem = Beth (container of or birthplace of?)-Elohim

A GIFT OF PROPHECY

The Vatican has issued a stern warning to Israel to respect religious sites in line with its international obligations,
following a gun battle around Bethlehem's besieged Church of the Nativity.
Israel says its troops are under orders not to fire at holy places and blamed Palestinian militants for a fire
near the church, which is revered by Christians as the birthplace of Jesus
Speaking from Rome, he said monks at the church had reported damage to "sacred spaces"
The Israeli army says Palestinian gunmen provoked a fire which broke out near the Church of the Nativity on
One Palestinian gunman was shot dead in the battle, the Israeli source said.
5-11-2002 Bethlehem church standoff ends
Israel set to withdraw as 13 suspected militants exiled and 26 released into Gaza Strip, after five-week siege
BETHLEHEM - A tense stand-off between Israeli troops and Palestinian gunmen at the Church of the Nativity ended after 39 days yesterday, with 13 suspected militants exiled and 26 released into the Gaza Strip.
Agreement on their release ended a week of cliffhanger negotiations and set the stage for an Israeli withdrawal from Bethlehem, where residents had been under round-the-clock curfews for more than five weeks.
The army questioned the gunmen briefly at a nearby military base before 13 of them, regarded by Israel as 'senior terrorists', were flown to Cyprus - a temporary stop from where they are to be sent next week to at least seven European countries.
The other 26 were driven in two buses to the Gaza Strip. Under the deal, this group is to face trial in a Palestinian court, but it is unclear how they will be dealt with.
Eighty-four Palestinian civilians and policemen not wanted by Israel were released. Police also removed 10 foreign activists who had refused to leave.
As the siege ended, a blast rocked the southern Israeli town of Beersheba. At least four people were wounded. Two suspects were arrested.
Israeli troops also massed outside the Gaza Strip in retaliation for a suicide attack in northern Israel on Tuesday.
Foreign Minister Shimon Peres said he expected 'careful and measured' action against militants in Gaza and that Israel had no plans to reconquer the territory.
Israeli media said the suicide bomber who killed 15 Israelis in Rishon Letzion came from Gaza, where the headquarters of the militant Islamic group Hamas is based.
Sensing an impending attack, some among the million residents of the overcrowded strip of refugee camps began stockpiling food and water.
Since March 29, Israeli forces have been attacking Palestinian-run cities to crush the infrastructure behind a wave of suicide bombings.
The military steps initiated by Israel showed Prime Minister Ariel Sharon set no store by Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's order for a crackdown on militants by his own battered security force.
In the past, Mr Arafat has ordered arrests only to release the detainees soon after.
In Bethlehem yesterday, the 13 most-wanted were the first to leave the church.
Italy said it would accept some of the 13, along with Spain, Austria, Greece, Luxembourg, Ireland and possibly Canada.
Details would be worked out by European Union foreign ministers on Monday. But they could not go home without Israel's agreement.
Israeli army officials expect a pull-out from Bethlehem within 'a matter of days'.

THROUGHOUT THE DAY, black-robed monks and local volunteers scrubbed the church, where tradition holds that Jesus was born, clearing out trash left behind by more than 200 Palestinians who holed up inside for nearly six weeks.
The siege was lifted Friday after 13 militiamen were deported to Cyprus and 26 others were sent to the Gaza Strip. After the standoff ended, Israeli troops withdrew from Bethlehem, where residents had been confined to their homes under round-the-clock curfews since April 2.
Latin Patriarch Michel Sabbah, the top Roman Catholic clergyman in the Holy Land, visited the church Saturday. In the grotto, a few steps down from the basilica, Sabbah knelt and
kissed a silver star on the marble floor, revered by Christians as the spot of Jesus’ birth.
Sabbah and senior clergymen from other denominations, including Greek and Syrian
Orthodox, held hands in the grotto and spoke the Lord’s Prayer in Arabic.
The various denominations often are at odds in the church where they jealously guard their turf; the Roman Catholics, the Greek Orthodox and the Armenian Orthodox each control different areas of the 4th century basilica.
In one incident in the mid-1980s, monks from different sects fought with broomsticks over who had the right to clean a small section of the wall.
In Saturday’s cleanup, each group concentrated on its area, but in a spirit of togetherness. Three Greek-Orthodox monks wearing latex gloves carried a rolled up carpet across the stone floor. Another monk wiped an icon with a yellow rag and others cleaned smudges from the walls with sponges.
A special service was planned for Sunday, to be led by Cardinal Roger Etchegaray, a Vatican envoy who had been involved in negotiations to end the standoff. It will be a service of “praise, redemption and reconciliation,” carrying the benediction of Pope John Paul II, the Vatican spokesman, Joaquin Navarro-Valls, said in a statement issued in Rome.
On Friday, after the end of the siege, the basilica had reeked of urine. The stone floor was covered with dirty blankets and mattresses, cigarette lighters and sunglasses. Leftover food covered an altar in the Armenian section. Those inside the church had complained the Israelis occasionally cut the water supply and water was scarce during the siege. There were no toilets inside the basilica and to get to facilities elsewhere required risking Israeli sniper fire to cross an open courtyard. Yet the basilica emerged with little permanent damage.
“It’s not a church any more, it’s a place filled with beds and trash,” said Sandy Shahin, a local teen-ager who rushed into the church minutes after the end of the siege Friday.
“The smell is too bad. The floor is too bad. I’m filled with fear,” Shahin, a Roman Catholic, said between sobs.
It seemed almost a small miracle that the Grotto of the Nativity, where a silver star installed by the Catholics in 1717 is set in white marble over the exact spot where Christians believe Jesus was born, was immaculate. But the second floor of the Franciscan order’s parish building in the complex looked like a war zone. Walls were pockmarked by bullet holes and scarred by smoke stains.
“I couldn’t imagine something like this,” said Manal Deik, a local banker, standing next to a bullet-riddled church wall that was also marked with graffiti scrawled in Arabic. “We will repair it because the damage is not outside, it’s inside and we can do something about that,” said the 25-year-old Catholic.
