I want to share with you all a dream I had in the 1980’s not long after I had become a believer in Messiah (I was around 18 years old). I recorded it in a journal I was keeping at the time:

Well I had no idea then how completely this dream would one day be fulfilled. Looking back, I know now that the ancient stone alter in ruins was Nazarene Judaism, and “rebuilding” it represented the work of restoration.
