Life Imitates Art in “A Reynah in Exile” - Guest Blogger Hadassah Chavivah Zeltzer

In honor of Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance, and Inclusion Month, I want to introduce you to a special film called "A Reynah in Exile," a symbolic tale about freedom from oppression. This award-winning short film, made by me has no spoken words and instead uses written text, music, and the viewer's own imagination to convey its messages.

The film was made in an allegoric storytelling style and is layered with relevant social justice and psychological themes while presenting them in an ethereal, fantasy-like manner. The music is a compelling backdrop to the film's story and adds drama and excitement to the overall tale. The music is an original piece - called "A Thousand and One Nights" - composed by the multi-talented composer and musician SaReGama

As an underrepresented artist with a mental health disability, I wrote, directed, edited, filmed, and played the main character, Reynah, in the film. (“Reynah” means “queen” in Persian.) In the film, Reynah and her family and friends face many challenges both from forces within and outside of their control. The film highlights some of the skills, tools, and unique coping mechanisms Reynah uses to survive this captivity until she is able to acquire freedom and independence.

One of my intentions for the film is to give people hope when facing challenges or obstacles in their lives, especially anyone who might struggle with any type of disability. I want to remind them that they are not alone. My film relays the message that they have what it takes to overcome their challenges when given the opportunities and resources they need. Just like Reynah, people can move out of their own exile circumstances to the other side of oppression one second and one day at a time. Just like my character, I am currently working toward self-sufficiency and economic freedom so I can take the next steps out of poverty and economic hardship. My long-term goal is to be able to continue working on “The Queen Esther One Dollar Fund,” which will support clergy abuse survivors from all faiths with financial resources to rebuild their lives and improve their quality of life.

I invite you to view the film for free below, or at the Brookline Interactive Group or Tzedeck.com.

I See You Devil!

"Me, daddy, Takai, and mommy were outside on the front lawn at night time. Mommy caught SATAN in the bushes. He was a little neon pink person that reminded me of a highlighter. In the bushes, mommy tied a rope around his neck and he fell unconscious for a moment. Satan woke up and ran to the opposite side of the culdesac across from us. He had on roller skates and gave this laugh like “hegh hegh,” then tried to skate away, but a red pick up truck came zooming down the street and ran him over. The truck kept drifting around the culdesac leaving behind this pink goo that belonged to Satan. He was dead!"

My daughter Taraji had this dream a few weeks ago. All I could do was laugh because Satan is a loser. The bible says, "God laughs at him for he sees his day is coming"- Psalm 37. I think all of us in the body of Christ should get a chuckle out of Satan's foolishness, but we must not be ignorant of his schemes. My family is not the only family that the enemy is seeking to devour. He's looking to destroy your family, your finances, your health, your destiny, your trust in God and if you're not paying attention HE WILL. 

In the dream, Satan is trying to see how he can mess with my family. God "highlighted" Satan trying to hide in the bushes. I tied a rope around his neck. A neck can symbolize a strong will and stubbornness. Tying the rope around his neck symbolized me using my authority in Christ to stop the will or the plans of Satan against my family. Satan thought he was going to skate away, but the Lord who ALWAYS has the final say came in power, and authority (red pick up truck) and destroyed the works of the enemy.

My daughter drew a picture of what Satan looked like in the dream. She said he looked like a tiny little alien and his color reminded her of a neon pink highlighter. LOL!

I love the scripture below that's referencing the King of Babylon but is also referencing the spiritual king of Babylon who is Satan, and how he will be perceived at the time of his final demise. We won't be impressed that's for sure.
"Everyone there will stare at you and ask, Can this be the one who shook the earth and made the kingdoms of the world tremble?" - Isaiah 14:16

Right now, there's a lot going on in the earth all at the same time. This is a perfect opportunity for Satan to distract, aggravate, and deceive the body of Christ. People of God we must be vigilant and diligent about our stance against the enemy's schemes. Don’t be caught off guard. Satan's job is to bombard you with attacks great and small in order to wear you down. I know many of you are battle-weary and exhausted from standing your ground, fasting, praying, decreeing the promises of God, and declaring that Satan can not have what belongs to you. Don't stop! Take hold of your authority by clinging to His Word, meditating on it, and speaking it out loud. Ask God for strength to endure until the end. If God is for you who can be against you? Victory belongs to you!

Power In Your Mouth - You Will Die Tonight!

I had a dream I was in a house guarding my family. When someone came through the door, I could see them and talk to them while they were standing behind a wall. They were not able to get past the wall or come into the house.

A man came through the door. He was talking to me but I  felt something wasn’t right. I felt afraid. Somehow he got passed the wall and started coming after me. With authority, I declared to him, “YOU WILL DIE TONIGHT!" Immediately my voice began to slur and it was a struggle for me to open my mouth to declare it again. Slowly... through the struggle, I declared “YOU WILL DIE TONIGHT!”Instantly the man dropped dead. I ran over to finish him (in case he wasn't dead) by jumping on his head and trying to break his neck. 

I woke up from the dream like whoa! What just happened? I realized this is how God expects the body of Christ to respond when the enemy attacks our nation, our families, our bodies, our finances and so on. Christians - we are in a season of actually declaring and seeing the manifestation of our declarations. We have been given authority by Jesus to destroy the works of darkness.

Jesus said:
"I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and CRUSH them. Nothing will injure you" - Luke 10:19 

Christians you have to use your MOUTH to destroy darkness. There is a demonic coronavirus pandemic sweeping the earth as I write. Many in the body of Christ are responding with fear just like I did at the beginning of my dream. Once you realize the enemy is trying to kill you, your family, and friends -  holy anger should rise up in you. Position yourself for battle. As you put on the full armor of God through prayer, fasting, worship, and declarations - expect resistance, expect to be attacked.

As you can see in the dream I was attacked in my mouth because that's where the authority was coming from. Don't be afraid when attacks come against you. You're considered a threat, Glory to God! The enemy wants you to stop walking in your authority and focus on the attacks so his plans won't be destroyed.  Keep speaking the word of God over the circumstances even through the resistance. In my dream, I was determined to keep declaring the enemy's demise through the attack against me until he was defeated. You have authority. Use your mouth to rebuke and curse wicked things and command them to die in Jesus' name!

Take a serious assessment of your life before taking authority over demonic spirits. Make sure your life is clean, not perfect. If there is hidden sin in your life, repent and confess it to God. Make sure you're living an obedient life in God because disobedience and unconfessed sin will hinder prayer or any authority you have been given.

Blessings, Tytenisha

7 Questions About The Prophetic Power Of Dreams & Visions Book




I am fascinated by the mysterious world of dreams and visions. In the past, I’d have the privilege of remembering a dream, then I would share with a friend about this weird dream I’d had the previous night. We’d laugh about it and think nothing of it. Little did I know that there is a message in our dreams!

How many times have you dismissed a dream because it was kooky, silly or just downright crazy? In 2004, I had an unusual dream that left me in awe regarding what I had experienced. The dream was extremely intense. After some time of pondering, I realized that I had a divine encounter.


My Dream - Floating on Air

“I was in an auditorium serving as an usher in a conference being hosted by Prophetess Juanita Bynum. I was standing in front of the podium along with another usher. Juanita Bynum is swiftly moving up and down the aisles preaching the word of God with passion and authority. I sensed a strong invisible presence surrounding her. As she charged down the aisle toward the podium, I felt the strong presence moving toward me and I was frightened. I quickly turned to run away but the presence overtook me and I fell facedown onto the ground. I was not able to talk nor could I move. I slowly began to rise to the top of the auditorium and float in the air. Other people were floating as well and we were gently bumping into each other. I no longer felt afraid as I was experiencing peace and love.

I floated to the right side of the auditorium and landed gently with my back to the floor. In a strong, boisterous voice that came from the pit of my stomach, I began violently screaming out praise and worship to God - HALLELUJAH!! GLORY TO GOD!! I WORSHIP YOU, LORD!! I felt possessed by the Spirit of God. Juanita Bynum cautiously moved to where I was and stood over me. When she witnessed me screaming violently - it seemed to frighten her and she quickly walked away.”   

I abruptly sat up in bed upon waking and sobbed profusely. I wept for the next two days because I could still feel the presence of God upon me.

The Gift of Prophecy vs. The Office of Prophet

Have you ever wondered if there was a difference between being able to prophesy and being called as a prophet? Let's take a look at the differences.


The Gift of Prophecy is given by the Holy Spirit.

"A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other. "To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice; to another, the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge. The same Spirit gives great faith to another, and to someone else the one Spirit gives the gift of healing. He gives one person the power to perform miracles, and another the ability to prophesy. He gives someone else the ability to discern whether a message is from the Spirit of God or another spirit. Still another person is given the ability to speak in unknown languages, while another is given the ability to interpret what is being said. It is the one and only Spirit who distributes all these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have" 1 Corinthians 12:10. 

The gift of Prophecy is a revelatory gift. Prophecy means to speak forth the word of God by the anointing of the Holy Spirit. It is by divine inspiration that a person can reveal things that are unknown or explain things that are complex and to declare the purposes of God. The gift of Prophecy edifies the body of Christ. It helps to build up and strengthen the people of God in their faith. Preaching and teaching the word of God is Prophesying. A child can prophesy! This gift is activated when God has something to say. It's about revealing God's truth to the body of Christ. This is a powerful gift and not one to be taken lightly. "But one who prophesies strengthens others, encourages them, and comforts them" - 1 Corinthians 14:3


"He that descended is the same also that ascended far above all heavens, that he might fill all things. And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers" - Ephesians 4:10-11

Jesus himself established these ministries. Prophets are called by God. In your biblical studies, you will see that many of the Prophets in the bible were personally called by God, none of them were self - appointed. You cannot just wake up one morning and decide, I'm going to be a Prophet! You must be called by God.

"I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations." Jeremiah 1:15

"The prophet's responsibility is to equip God's people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ" - Ephesians 4:12.

Prophets are God's mouthpieces. They edify, exhort, bring comfort, correction, and direction to the body of Christ. Prophets are watchmen/prayer warriors that are assigned to different spheres of influence within the body of Christ. Prophets sometimes foretell the future by God's revelation. "The Sovereign Lord never does anything until he reveals his plans to his servants the prophets" - Amos 3:7 

Prophets and those with the gift of prophecy move in similar ways. A Prophet has a specific work and assignment that has been ordained by God from birth. Although the gifting's between the office of Prophet and the gift of prophecy are similar, the prophetic office is a ministry and calling that you walk in for the rest of your life and years of intense training is involved. 

Each role in the body of Christ is important. Scripture says, "There are many parts. But there is only one body. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it. If one part is honored, every part shares in its joy. You are the body of Christ. Each one of you is a part of it" - 1 Corinthians 12:26-27

Dog Dream Symbol

Hey! Are you a dreamer or just curious about dreams? If so, that’s awesome! If you didn’t know, I’m a dreamer! I love talking about dreams, I love reading dreams and interpreting them. I want to help you understand what different symbols mean in your dreams. Understanding a dream symbol can unlock the meaning of your dreams. Have you ever wondered what dogs symbolized in your dreams? Well, let’s talk about it!

When looking for the meaning of a dream symbol, the bible should be your first source of reference. If the symbol is not in the bible, then you cautiously refer to other resources. There are several scriptures in the bible that may help with understanding a dog dream symbol. I will list two.

  • A dog can symbolize an ENEMY: My enemies surround me like a pack of dogs; an evil gang closes in on me - Psalm 22:16

  • A dog can symbolize an UNSAVED PERSON: "It is not right to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs.” - Matthew 15;26

  • A dog can symbolize MAN'S BEST FRIEND: In today's society dogs are seen as friends, pets, and protectors but on the flip side, they can be enemies.

  • A dog bite can symbolize AN ATTACK: Depending on the context of the dream, it can be a friend or an enemy attacking you or betraying you.

  • A growling or barking dog can symbolize AN ANNOYING PERSON, A BIG MOUTH (all bark and no bite) or it could be someone WARNING YOU of something.

My White Dog Dream

My daughter and I are standing on the front porch of a house. On the right of us a white wolf dog was laying down asleep. It was not on the porch with us, it was on the ground. In the dream I knew the wolf dog was always friendly toward me so I wasn't that concerned about it. A young boy decided to bother the wolf dog and then quickly run away. The wolf dog jumped up to see who disturbed him or her and thought it was me and my daughter. I told my daughter to quickly go into the house. The wolf dog was now quickly making its way up the porch. I ran in behind my daughter and tried to close the door. The door took so long to close, I kept saying please hurry up and close as I'm pushing on it. The door closes and I lock it just in time. The door had a window in it and I could see the wolf dog knawing on the door knob trying to get in.

Before I went to bed that night, I prayed and asked God if I should ask a particular person to be my business mentor. This person and I are acquaintances and have always been friendly toward each other. This person always presented themself as successful and having good business sense. I hoped to receive guidance from them. That same night God gave me this dream.

There are scriptures in the bible that reference wolves. One scripture in particular talks about wolves in sheep's clothing.  That scripture is generally talking about false prophets but may also be used to describe a deceptive person, a thief, a predator, and a person seeking their own gain.  The fact that this dog was white meant that the person acts or seems to be a righteous honest person or friend - but they're dishonest and dangerous. Every dream symbol has a pro and a con.

When this wolf-dog was disturbed it woke up and turned on me, when normally it is friendly towards me. It became relentless in its pursuit to attack me and in turn a struggle for me to get-away. As I looked out of that little window in the door, God gave me a glimpse of who this person "really" was and what our relationship would look like if they became my mentor.

God was revealing to me that the answer was NO! And to “Let sleeping dogs lie.”

Blessings! Tytenisha

Prophetic Clock Dream Symbol

Clocks and watches are important prophetic dream symbols.  Usually, these objects are time markers for events that will take place in our lives. Therefore it's very important to pay attention to the time in your dream or vision. Watches can also symbolize "The Watchman" or "The Prophet" who is on watch, meaning God has him/her standing in the gap or interceding in prayer for a particular person, group, ministry, or nation. The vision I will share is not a watchman's vision, but I will explain how the time was important for me to know.
"I was in my office at my place of employment. Three people were accusing me of making mistakes. All three people were against me. I was angry and hurt. I looked at my wrist watch and the time was 7:50 am" 

This was a vision that had very little symbolism.  Visions are literal, dreams are symbolic. I was in my actual office at work and the people were actual people at my place of employment. The accusations against me were actually happening and the way I felt was a reality. The only symbolic part of the vision was the time.

God loves to communicate with us through numbers.  I looked up the meaning of the individual numbers in order for me to obtain revelation on the time.

  • 7 represents - completion, something coming to end, finished. I thought, "Oh boy here we go!"

  • 5 represents - God's grace, the ability to overcome something.

  • 50 represents - Jubilee, Liberty, freedom!

  • I also searched scriptures that had chapter and verse 7:50 and looked what popped up: "Jesus said to the woman, Your faith has saved you; go in peace - Luke 7:50" again, here we go!

I began to understand that my days were numbered and sure enough a month later I was released from my place of employment.  God prepared me for this unfortunate event in my life. He warned me that something was coming to an end but he would give me the ability to overcome it. He also encouraged me by stating there would be a sense of freedom and  I have identified what that freedom is for me. I'll keep that to myself for now lol!

I wasn't going to add this but it might be useful to those who like to see how God speaks through numbers. I woke up from that vision at 3:14 am. I looked up scriptures for 3;14 and found:
"But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.” 1 Peter 3:14

God had my back the whole time. Don't dismiss your dreams! Pay attention to the time on the clock and ask God to give you revelation. Here is the link to a Christian Dream Symbol book that I frequently use:
