Dreams & Visions

Lesson 2

According To The Vision ©

Numbers 8:1 - 12:16

By Dr. Akiva Gamliel Belk


This study of Ha Torah is dedicated in the loving memory of Mr. Stephen Reynolds, Mr. Donald Wayne Belk and Mr. Gary Lee Belk, the Rebbetzin' younger brother and my older brothers, may they rest in peace.

We read, 'And this is [how] the menorah was made from hardened gold [from] its base to [each of] its blossoms. It was shaped from something seen, [according to] the vision, [everything from Aleph to Tav] that The Lord [showed] Moshe.' Numbers 8.4

Sometimes we reach a place where we need a vision. We need a road map to show us what to do. We need to see something that will guide us in our preparation. We need an architectural plan. We need assistance from beyond our realm. This is what The Lord Did for Moshe.

Sometimes we may be short on the skill or technique we need to do the task. We may need a teacher. We may need a video. We may need to see a movie on how to do the task we are facing... This is also what The Lord Did for Moshe.

Years ago before returning to Torah Observance back in 5740 (1980) I was appointed by my Daddy to manage the family property. This meant the cleaning, painting, repairing and renting, etc. was all my responsibility. My family owned a beautiful two bedroom bungalow several blocks away from Washington Park now know as the 'Wash Park Area'. My younger brothers grew up in this older home. My family purchased another property to live in back in the hills of Missouri. It was my responsibility to make our former home ready to lease. It needed to be prepped for painting on the inside. There was enough money in the budget to hire a professional painter. Instead I chose to take on the job myself. After all, my Daddy and my Mommy, may they rest in peace, my brothers and I had painted many apartments and houses over the years. This was something I was acquainted with. It did not seem that difficult. However I made it difficult... extremely difficult!!

I got impatient. I was in a hurry to get started. I wanted to knock the job out in one day. Those hired to cover the mantle, windows, hardwood floors and other areas were moving much too slow for this impatient kid. I wish I had the energy from back then...They were doing a very good job but I was impatient. After awhile I could take no more. I hooked up the high pressure sprayer and began spraying everything in sight. Unfortunately this included many areas that should not have been sprayed. The pressure was not correct. The paint mixture was wrong. Many areas had considerable over spray like the oak hardwood floors, window panes, mirrors, ceramic tile, sinks, door handles, etc. I made a real mess of things! This was very embarrassing! My only solace was all of my family was out of town for awhile. 

I began trying to clean up the over spray. It only got worse. I wanted to bury my face in my hands and cry. Later that evening, after hours of work, I gave up and went home realizing this was not going to go away without a miracle. Have you every wanted to take back a deed? Have you ever wanted to relive a day? Well...

Late that night I cried, 'Oh Lord please help me. Look at what I have done. My Daddy is going to kill me. What a sad thing to do! I need your help! What am I going to do'?

That night I had a dream... I had a vision of a television commercial. It was a short dream. All I saw was the name... the label on a white plastic cleaning bottle. Then I heard these words, 'Remember what happened when you used that product [to clean the dirt from around the light switches]'? I remembered spraying the wall around the dirty area. The spray rolled down the wall removing the dirt and some of the paint also. Obviously the product name is omitted for a reason.

The next morning I instructed my helpers to purchase that product and hurry over to the house. We sprayed it on the hardwood floors then let it settle several minutes. The paint wiped clean! I shouted 'Thank G-d!' We used this spray to clean the paint off of everything. The nightmare was finally under control. The Creator came to my rescue through a dream.

Holy reader, The Lord Uses visions to give us clarity. It is like The Lord Says,'Quiet on the set! Action! Roll 'em!' Then the picture begins to play. It was like The Lord gave me a self-help... instructional video... Dear ones, in a more profound way The Lord Showed Moshe every detail on how to create the Menorah from Aleph to Tav that we read about in this Parshat.

What do you need the Creator to show you?

Dear ones, not to long ago in a recent class discussion I shared about a Dream / a Vision while sitting on theL2 front porch of our home back in the hills of Missouri. The dream was about how we could store our Sukkah lumber. Rebbetzin Revi and I have had this on going discussion on what to do with our Sukkah lumber etc.  In the Vision I was shown how to build a holder under our deck. I awoke.  Several hours later we completed our Sukkah holder in an out of the way place close to where we will built this years Sukkah, G-d Willing.

Not all dreams and Visions need to be about the future. Some Dreams and Visions are about today. Some Dreams and Visions are about what we are facing and require assistance with.  A Dream or a Vision does not need to be complicated.

In my dream I was given a gift, it was a white Ivory Torah Roller. I had my hands out and it was placed in them. The roller was white and glowing with a light shinning around it. It was beautiful. I got up and drew a picture of it and a message came to me:

Be happy and prosperous as He shows thee the way. Walk tall and He will guide thee each and everyday. A blessing has come to thee on this fine morning. Rest for more shall come.

Thank you Dr. Akiva Gamliel and Rebbetzin Revi Belk for giving me the opportunity to share my dreams and visions.

Blessings, Shirley Vicks

Dear Ones, not so long ago I was resting in bed. It may have been a coffin. I don’t know. Kah Nah Naw Hah Raw! The Rebbetzin came to me on the right side of the bed or wherever I was resting. Rebbetzin Revi was a young beautiful woman between the age of maybe 8 to 12. The Rebbetzin had a very full smile from cheek to cheek. She stood their glancing down towards me smiling and smiling at me. Kah Nah Naw Hah Raw! I awoke and am praying about the meaning of this dream. One should write dreams like this down and seek their Creator. One should also tell their mate or a close friend who knows what to say. One should say, ‘May only good dreams come to pass!’ I did this. the Rebbetzin said, ‘May only good dreams come to pass!’ When we don’ know what a dream means we should say to the individual, ‘May only good dreams come to pass!’ One should never guess the interpretation to a dream. Yoseif said, ‘Do not interpretations belong to God?’

During my morning prayers this is the message that came to me. The time of the full moon shall come and it’s brightness shall be seen all over the world. The light shall be seen and the children of the land will know that I am G-d. Do not be afraid for the light will bring joy, peace and happiness. The cry of the children is heard. Look to the hill for there shall be a sign that shall come. For the time is near. Be bless my children. The L-rd loves thee.

Be blessed Shirley Vicks

On November 27, 2012 I had a vision with a message that said put the twelve stones in a circle. Each stone represent one of the twelve tribes. The color coordinates. Place them in order. Bringing the full spirit of the light. Pray for each stone of light that the tribes of Judah gives what is needed. Blessing, Shirley Vicks
