Rich F. is a Jewish man who came to believe that Yeshua is the Messiah. Wally, his father, was vehemently against it, having experienced antisemitism firsthand while in the military service. Still, father and son remained close. Years later, Wally was diagnosed with terminal cancer. He confounded his doctors by outliving their original prognosis, but his condition deteriorated and those close to him knew he was dying.
Toward the end of his life, Wally called Rich with an urgent request for a visit. When Rich arrived at the hospital, Wally said, “I had a dream. I dreamed you were right.” “Do you believe it?” Rich asked. Wally nodded his assent. Soon after, he fell into a coma.
As the end drew near, Wally began to struggle. As Rich leaned over him, he whispered, “Dad, Yeshua the Messiah is waiting for you. Rest now.” Wally stopped struggling and died a short time later.
