O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the covert of the cliff, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.’” (Song of Songs 2:14)
Earlier this month, an Israeli organization with a mission to connect Israeli Jews to God, released a dramatic video, purporting to describe what will happen in the final three hours before the arrival of the Messiah and the construction of the Third Temple.
The 30-minute video is narrated by a 31 year-old Haredi (fervently Orthodox Jewish) woman named Caroline who explained that, “I experienced a sort of out of body experience.”
In emotional Hebrew, the tone of which can be understood behind the English subtitles, Caroline related how, on several occasions while struggling with postpartum depression, she experienced the presence of an unseen entity in her home which she called “something creepy”. After a particularly stressful week, she experienced a dream or a vision or an out of body experience. She didn’t know quite what to call it.
The vision opened with a chariot, much like the one in Ezekiel 1. Through much of the narration, Caroline had trouble finding words to describe what she experienced because her experience transcended normal life. She described herself as being in “another world”.
At this stage, the video becomes quite disturbing. She described crowds of people in some kind of transparent hall, getting “terrible beatings, they are getting tremendous whippings, afflictions. Impossible!”
There is a fairly long personal narrative during which she tells how her soul was judged and the tremendous, burning shame she felt. Approximately 18 and a half minutes in, she mentions a prophecy about the imminent arrival of the Messiah.
Then Caroline shared another, more universal, dream-like vision she had a few weeks later. In it, she saw a worldwide tsunami, everywhere except for the Land of Israel. The narrative of the destruction brought on by the tsunami is illustrated with clips from science fiction, horror and action films, adding powerful images to her chilling descriptions.
Within Israel, she described people running and running, while thousands of rockets and scuds passed overhead and “sirens and indescribable chaos”. In extremely violent and unsettling visions, she saw ISIS at work, beheading, stabbing and slaughtering people.
Then she heard a voice tell her, “This will be 3 hours before the arrival of Moshiach (Messiah).”
Shortly after, her vision turned to the spiritual building of the Third Temple. She related being aware of the Shechina (Divine Presence), which was so strong, people had to turn away because, “It is impossible to gaze at the Divine Presence, but we could surely feel it. Such radiance!”
Caroline heard a voice from Heaven declare, “Nation of Israel the time for your redemption has arrived!” She summarized her vision of the final three hours and the beginning of redemption by saying, “And this was the most beautiful experience of my life.”
Breaking Israel News asked prolific author and end of days expert Rabbi Pinchas Winston about the likelihood that the scenario described in the video was possible, based on Jewish sources. He called the presentation “riveting” and said it was “hard NOT to watch. It is the best I have seen so far.”
Without confirming that the events of the video are prophetic or will definitely happen, he told Breaking Israel News, “Everything she said could be 100 percent true.There are prophecies like that.”
Rabbi Winston suggested that, rather than dismiss the video out of skepticism, people should “Live like it could be true, because it is based upon ideas and principles that we know are true. Whether she really had all this vision is irrelevant in the end… its message is a good warning.”
The name of the organization that produced the film is B’hagvei HaSela. Their name comes from a Biblical verse in Song of Songs and means “in the clefts of the rock”.
O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the covert of the cliff, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.’ (Song of Songs 2:14)
