Garrett Crawford - 05/28/2009
(David's notes in red)
The first thing I recall in this dream is I was lying in bed, reminiscing about a strange dream I had seen. In this dream, I had met a young, red-haired man who was the nephew of author Tom Clancy. After getting out of bed, it had crossed my mind that I had to go over to a friend of mine's home for something and he was expecting me. I got in my car and drove over to his home; I walked up the step and opened the door. As I swung the door open, I saw two men whom I had never met before, sitting in my friend's living room. One was a heavy-set man and the other was a younger fellow with red hair. The red-haired man was setting up a camera and tripod,as if he was going to film me, like in a documentary. At this point, I knew that he was in fact Tom Clancy's nephew. I walked over to him and asked "Do you believe in prophetic dreams?" He replied with a yes. I then told him that the Lord revealed to me this morning that I would be meeting him. After this encounter I found that the two men were impressed with this miracle and that allowed me to be able to talk with them about many things. After some conversation and time had passed, one of the men, either my friend or the heavy-set companion of the nephew, said to me, "You know, I never forgot what you said about the market crashing; I still think about that". (I guess he was referring to the dream I had about a year ago where I feel the Lord showed me two crashes of the market.)
"Yesterday the market dropped like a hundred-and-something points; I think you were right on". (I had the dream on the 28th, so if the dream was correct there should have been a loss of over 100 points on the 27th. I looked it up and found the market closed down 173 points on the 27th. So maybe this was just a sign that an all-knowing intelligence was at work in my dream.)
I solemnly responded to him that that wasn't the crash. I told him to expect something closer to the market index crashing to 5000 (or losing 5000 points, I can't remember exactly. I never perceived in the dream that this one-day loss of 100+ points would directly precede the greater crash, but that it would be a way down the road. I thinkthe man's comment represents the worldly, hopeful belief that the worst is over or that only a little pain will be felt. But to the lost's surprise, the crash that is soon to come will be beyond their worst fears.)
It is possible that the Lord left this point vague in Garrett's mind because his dream could mean botha drop to 5000 and later a 5000 point drop. Here are a few examples that a drop to 5000 has been contemplated:
- Recap of September 21: Dow 5,000? [dead link | http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,63833,00.html]
- DOW 5000, Revisited
A drop of 5000 points would indeed be catastrophic. It is possible this crash could be precipitated by manmade and God-made disasters and could bring in war and the NWO we have been expecting.
I have a limited knowledge of Tom Clancy. I know that he writes political upheaval-themed novels that involve terrorist attacks and wars. I have even heard that he has an eerie gift to be able to write things in his novels that have strikingly similar characteristics to what happens in our world today. Maybe someone else who reads this could explain what, if any significance, he or his red-headed nephew could mean in this dream.
Our UBM Administrative Assistant, Robin, said",The only book title of Tom Clancy's that I could recall and that came to mind when I read Garrett's dream is The Sum of All Fears". She then found this interesting quote in the editorial review on Amazon for that book:
In The Sum of All Fears, the center of conflict is the perpetual hot spot the Mideast, where a nuclear weapon falls into the hands of terrorists just as peace seems possible. Clancy realistically paints an almost unthinkable scenario--the bomb is planted on American soil in the midst of an escalation in tension with the Soviet Union; the terrorists hope to rekindle cold war animosity and prevent reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians.
Many Christians have had dreams and visions of the things Clancy has painted a picture of. The young red-headed nephew who believed in prophetic dreams could represent immature full gospel people who somewhat walk under submission (Hair, i.e. 1 Cor.11) to sin (Red, i.e. Isa.1:18) but are impressed with Garrett's foreknowledge enough to believe him and tell the world, symbolized by the documentary. Clancy and the red-head are spiritual kin in that they believe the same things.
With California, which is 10% of the economy, GM, Chrysler, the commercial real estate market, credit card debt, U.S. debt, etc, going down the drain, the house of cards is continuing to fall. Trust in God, saints. He will be your supplier in the days to come.
Update - 9/20/12: I was just reading some news articles posted today and ran across this one. A former Goldman Sachs analyst says to expect war and the DOW dropping to 5000 by the end of 2012. We saw the DOW drop to 5000 in 2009.
