India and Pakistan are at the brink of war. No one knows what tomorrow will bring for us. And know one knows that what is ahead of us. We are living in a world where there is nothing but uncertainty. According to experts, if nuclear war takes place then there are chances that twelve million people may die. We are living in this age where no peace but everywhere fear and chaos. People are looking for peace but it seems peace is far far away from us.

But Jesus said in John 14:27, "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

Once I heard about a woman whose name was Dhannammal. Long back she lived in a village of TamilNadu, India. She never studied in school and had no idea how to read anything, nor she worked anywhere. She got married in a very young age. Her husband was a preacher of Gospel but she never liked his Gospel preaching. When he returns home after the hard work of whole day, she served him burnt bread or food that no human being can eat. But her preacher husband praised God for everything and ate it with great delight. That was the routine of their lives. Meanwhile they had nine children. Days and months passed by and her cruelty toward her preacher husband increased day by day.

One day she got news that her husband is no more. She was shocked and could not believe on this news. The lone bread earner was gone forever and she had no idea that how she is going to survive with her nine children. At the side of her husband's coffin she knelt down and cried out to God - to the same God whom she rejected all her life. A great peace came and filled her heart. Later she got filled with the Holy Spirit and God used her as a prophetess. Many foreigners used to go at her house for prayer. She would kneel down and pray for them in their own languages and in English very fluently as if she knew the language very well. Not only her community astonished seeing this but those foreigners also.

God took care of a woman who had no one to take care. This woman prophesied over many people and some of them became world famous evangelists. Yes, when we give our lives in the hands of God, He takes care and makes us a blessing. We need not to worry about anything if our lives are in the mighty hand of Jesus. He is our Peace. He gives peace that passes all understanding. Are you worried today, thinking about tomorrow? Invite Jesus in your life and live a worry free life.

My dad was an Engineer and had a very secure job in Govt. But one day he got an order that after 48 hours he had no job. Another officer got the similar letter and had heart attack straight away and passed away. We had no idea where we will go and how we will survive. We had to leave our Govt. house, Govt. vehicles etc. Our house had not finished that time. We were devastated. But we cried out to God and God helped us in a very miraculous way. One of my dad's friends told him to come and live in his house. We lived there for more than one year without giving any rent. God blessed our lives and helped us to survive in that time of great trouble. The same God who helped us, the same God who helped millions around the world can help you. You need not to live in fear and horror but you can enjoy peace in the midst of terrible pain and sufferings by accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior.

In this Issue I am publishing one real story that I found on a Yahoo Group that I am a member of... I hope it would be a blessing for you all.

Moishe's Recuurent Dreams about the Messiah

By Jim Bramlett, April 29, 2002.

Dear friends:
The below amazing story was sent to me today from Matt Schwartz, founder and president of Intercessors for Israel. This happened during their Pro-Israel March for the Lord in 1994, the year following the 1993 Oslo Accords. It will touch your heart and encourage you. Be blessed. -- Jim

Moishe's Recurrent Dreams About the Messiah

We had some 66 Spirit-filled saints from America with us. We marched down Tel Aviv's main street, Deizengorf Street, with our banners. We had a sound system, and all the Israelis came out from their shops and stores and stood on the sidewalk, and joined our singing, as we marched past them.

We threw flowers, we gave out gospel tracts, we loved the Israelis. They loved us back. We were singing, Am Yisrael Chaii and Hava - Negilla, the same songs the Israeli's sang when they became a nation in 1948 and again when they captured Jerusalem in the six-day war in 1967. The Lord told us to learn and to sing their songs of victory, as we marched for the King of Kings down the main street in Tel Aviv.

Among the hundreds of Israelis we met that day in 1994 was an 80-year-old man named Moishe (Moses). Moishe is a Bible-believing, orthodox Jew, originally from Germany. He met his wife Esther, in a concentration camp that was liberated by the Americans in 1945. Moishe and Esther married, and made Aliya to Israel in 1945. They celebrated the birth of Israel in 1948. They are religious Jews, keep Sabbath, and believe in Messiah's imminent coming. When they heard our music in the streets (Moishe is the owner of Sterns Jewelry Store), they ran out from their store.

When our Messiah parade came by, Moishe ran out to us and said, "This is the same music I have been hearing in my dreams at night." (That's amazing, since we were also singing, Amazing Grace, Hallelujah and other godly hymns not known or sung by Jews.) Moishe told us that He was having a recurring dream, every night for the past 90 nights. For three months, he woke up in the middle of the night expecting to meet the Messiah.

First Moishe heard the sound of trumpets sounding all through the land of Israel. The trumpets were so real they woke him up, usually around 3:00 a.m., in the morning. It was so real, Moishe told us, that he got up from bed, put on his bathrobe, and went to the front door of their small apartment in Tel Aviv. Moishe opened the door and could hear the sound of trumpets in the distance. "The sound was beautiful," he said. Then he heard a voice gently saying to him, "Moishe, look up." When he looked up to the sky, Moishe saw "a mighty army, dressed for battle." The army was gathered for war. They wore white robes, had ephods of pure gold on their chests, and had drawn swords. The army, Moishe said, numbered into the millions. They were all riding upon white stallions. Their leader sat on the lead white horse. Upon His head, Moishe told us, was a crown with many jewels.

This "Messiah" wore a royal robe, which Moishe said was a "white and blue tallit, the Jewish prayer shawl. He had eyes of fire. He was getting ready to execute judgment on Israel's enemies who had sought to seize Jerusalem. Just behind the leader and his army in the sky, was a city with 12 gates, also descending from heaven. The army waited. The heavenly city hovered over the city of Jerusalem, Moishe said, "Lord, who are you? What is your name? I know you are our Messiah. We have waited for this day since 1948." Suddenly, a gentle voice answered Moishe, saying, "I am called the Champion."

Then the trumpets stopped. The army faded away, and finally, the Champion said, "Moishe, I love you. I am coming soon. Wait for me." Moishe woke his wife, Esther. She said, "Moishe, go to the rabbis. Tell them about your dream." Moishe obeyed his wife. He talked with over thirty different Orthodox Jewish rabbis in Tel Aviv and in Jerusalem. The rabbis had never heard of a Messiah coming from heaven with a mighty army of soldiers riding on white horses, or of a city called the "New Jerusalem," or of the Messiah being called, "The Champion." When Moishe and his wife ran out to meet our parade, he told about his dream and asked us a simple question. Do you know who is this person, who rides a horse and comes from heaven to Israel, and calls himself, "the Champion?" I had a pastor with me from Eugene, Oregon named Brad Lane. Brad began to answer Moishe and his lovely wife, Esther. Our dancers stopped dancing. Our worship team played gently in the background, "Hallelujah." Moishe and Esther, both 80 years old, stood in the middle of our circle.

Pastor Brad Lane, answered Moishe and his wife, saying, "Moishe, God has given you this anointed dream for the past ninety nights. God Loves you and your family. God knows you're a God-fearing, righteous Jew. You survived the Holocaust. You live in Israel. You believe in the Messiah. The reason that the rabbis have never heard of the Champion, riding to Jerusalem on a white horse, is because that portrait is not in the Tenach (the Old Testament) but is found in the New Testament. Would you like to see this Scripture? It's in the book of Revelation, chapter 19. Moishe, said, "Yes, of course, I want to see this verse."

We all gathered and began to pray, "Lord, touch Moishe's heart as he reads the book of Revelation." Brad said, "Moishe, I want you to read this, out loud, and tell me, if this describes your dream." Slowly, Moishe, put on his reading glasses. Some of his employees from the jewelry store had joined our circle on Deizengorf street. Esther, Moishe's wife of 50 years, stood by his side. Car horns honked, taxis, drove by. It was a typical Sunday afternoon in the bustling city of Tel Aviv, Israel. Moishe began to read out loud, from Revelation 19:11-12, the words written by John, the Apostle, some 2000 years ago, in the 66th book of the Bible. "And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God'" (Revelation 19: 11-13).

Moishe stopped reading. Pastor Brad Lane, from Eugene Oregon said, Moishe, Does this describe The Champion you have seen in your dream? Moishe said, "Yes, Brad, it does." Brad said, "Moishe, would you like to know the real Hebrew name of your "Champion"? Moishe said, "Yes, Brad. Tell me His name. Who is He?

Brad said, "His name is Jesus. His Hebrew name is Y'shua, Yeshua Ben David. Jesus, the son of David. Would you like to ask Him to be your Savior and Lord today?

Moishe didn't hesitate when he answered, "Yes, Brad, I am ready. Brad turned to me, and said, Pastor Matt, would you lead us in prayer." I said, "with pleasure." Moishe, Esther and several of their employees, a group of five, prayed with us a simple, but powerful prayer of salvation. "Yesua, I am a sinner. I accept your finished work on the Cross. I repent of my sins. Please, save me, heal me, redeem me, love me, and let me come into your kingdom. I accept the gift of eternal life, I know you are the Messiah, I believe in You. I trust you. In the name of Y'shua, hamashiah, Amen."

A gentle peace settled over Moishe and his wife. His three Israeli employees had tears in their eyes. One of them, an Israeli girl named, Dayla, said, "God has sent you to Israel, to show us the way to peace. Jesus is coming again soon."

We went into Moishes' store, and he and Esther served us some Israeli coffee and Jewish cakes. We held hands a second time, and prayed again. This time, Lorna, my dance leader from Toledo, Ohio, said, "Moishe, Esther, God has more for you today."

Lorna, a 51-year-old housewife from America, laid her hands on Moishe and his wife and prayed for them to be "filled with the Holy Spirit." We waited. We all prayed. Then we started singing, Hava, negillah. We began to dance. Moishe, Esther and their three saved Israeli staff led us in the traditional Jewish Hora. We praised the Lord. They closed the store. We stayed and had dinner with them. We made friends, for life. We told the five of them that had just gotten saved about, Ari and Shira Sorko Ram, Messianic Pastors. We gave them the address of this congregation in Tel Aviv. They promised to attend the mid-week bible study.

Pastor Brad Lane, from Eugene Oregon, had the final word. He said, "Moishe, God gave you a special dream. Dreams, are found in Joel, 2:28. The Scriptures say, 'In the last days, I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh. Your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.' Jesus is coming again soon. Moishe, tell your friends and family in Israel about your dreams. Read to them Revelation 19:11,12.

Moishe and Esther smiled. They, at age 80, had found their long awaited Messiah. They had peace at last. They are a part of Israel's first fruits. They will be in the rapture. They love the Lord. Thank you for praying for the peace of Jerusalem.

Moishe and Esther are an answer to your prayers. They know the man of peace is NOT a leader from Europe, or a false, secular Israeli prophet. They have found peace in Y'shua, who is called in Isaiah 9:6, Israel's true, "Prince of Peace."

Moishe clarification
Jim Bramlett
Apr 30, 2002 Dear friends:

In the message about Moishe yesterday, the Lord said to him, "Moishe, I love you. I am coming soon. Wait for me." This was eight years ago, in 1994, and Moishe was age 80. Moishe would be age 88 now.

Since Jesus said to him, "Wait for me," like me you may be wondering if Moshe is still alive, and if maybe we have another Dr. Eby-type situation.

For your info, I queried Matt Schwartz about this, and last night he replied: "Yes, exactly, like Dr. Eby. As far as I know, Moishe is still alive. Last I heard he had witnessed to many in Israel, then made a journey back to Hamburg Germany to tell some of his old friends about his dream and of the coming of Israel's Messiah."
