There Are More Things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio ......

Those who read this blog regularly know that I was on the verge of suspending it as of this coming Isru Chag of Shavuot.  I truly believed, and of course as we finally see right now, continue to believe, that this Yom Yerushalayim and Shavuot 5776 one week later are the Gateway to the 50th Gate of both the physical Yerushalayim on Earth and the spiritual Yerushalayim in Heaven.  It IS the 50th Yom Yerushalayim, the date of its unification, since and including the year of the 6 Day War on the third day of that war.  Yom Yerushalayim 5776 is therefore the entrance to the 50th and the Golden Gates since they are truly one and the same.  For the last several years now, I have believed that at this very auspicious moment at which we are at its doorstep or Gateway was not just the next most opportune time for the Final Redemption in our Generation, but that it was actually the Time, B'Itah, that Mashiach ben David would have to show up to greet us at the 50th Gate, in the words of Rav Chaim Vital, zt"l.  And so it seems to be.....  (So as long as this process proceeds, I won't be suspending this blog anytime soon.....)


The list of everything that has happened during this week of Netzach during the Counting of the Omer between the 49th Pesach and 50th Shavuot since the 6 Day War is lengthy.  Here are just four events:
  
1. 66 gentile souls die as their plane descends to Mitzraim between the two countries France and Mitzraim set to divide Jerusalem this Summer.  Gen 46.  66 souls accompanied Yaakov to Mitzraim.

 66 gentile souls went down in an airplane into the Mediterranean that originated in Paris, France on the way to Mitzraim as the plane entered Mitzri traffic control airspace... in honor of this pasuk....

ו כָּל-הַנֶּפֶשׁ הַבָּאָה לְיַעֲקֹב מִצְרַיְמָה, יֹצְאֵי יְרֵכוֹ, מִלְּבַד, נְשֵׁי בְנֵי-יַעֲקֹב--כָּל-נֶפֶשׁ, שִׁשִּׁים וָשֵׁשׁ. 26 All the souls belonging to Jacob that came into Egypt, that came out of his loins, besides Jacob's sons' wives, all the souls were threescore and six. (That would be 66.)

Dear L-rd, Now that we are arriving at the 50th Gate, Are You just getting started?

Oh, the Parisians in coordination with El Sisi of Mitzraim just announced today or yesterday that they will not be deterred this Summer with their most important foreign policy goal in their lap: to divide Yerushalayim and the rest of Eretz Yisrael between the Jews and the Mythical State of the Invented People!  Good Show Hollande!  Good show El Sisi! You really want to get lacerated again?   

2. Meir Ettinger's torturer in the Defense Ministry  Moshe Boogie Yaalon falls from his high perch on this past Wednesday, the Day of Netzach that is in Netzach, 25th day of the Omer.  At the Brit Milah of his son that Meir could not attend under orders from Yaalon, the baby received the mysterious and unusual first name Netzach about which Rav Yitzchak Ginsburgh Shlit"a gave a two hr. drashah at the seudat brit.  There was a Mazkir at the Seudah recording the entire drashah.  I know someone who is close to the Rav.  I will try to get the transcript from him. 

3. Meir Ettinger will now get a release from being Israel's foremost political prisoner of the past year (one of the Yordei Duma or those arrested for the Duma arsons/murders).  He will be released a mere four days before we reach the Gateway to the 50th year of Yerushalayim's Unification.  The 50th gate physically is The Golden Gate to The Temple Mount from the Qidron Valley to where the Ezrat HaNashim was during the times of the First two Temples on The Mount.  The Golden Gate aka Shaar HaRachamim is in a direct line from the peak of the Mt. of Olives on the other side of the Qidron valley to the east of the Old City, from there to the Holy of Holies on the Temple Mount.

4.  And now the foremost Temple Mt activist in the world is entering the K'nesset as an MK to replace the fallen Yaalon!   And as he enters, he ponders and prays about Sanctifying the Name of Heaven!  

Now where is Horatio when you need him!  So much is happening, and in this summary I have skipped so much that has occurred in the last 72 hours alone.  Now that we are approaching the 50th Gate, expect a Flood of Geulah news.  Expect that it might be difficult for Geulah bloggers to keep up with all the details of the flow of events.  All that was Derekh HaTeva since the 6 Day War for the last 49 years will revert to relationships between events that are openly miraculous.  That is the only thing that we will be able to fully expect as we approach and enter this auspicious 50th year.

After the events of the last week, I am ecstatic enough this Erev Shabbat to start singing Hallel without a bracha, but I know that we are in a process that will only BEGIN to climax during the week of Malkhut, the week between Yom Yerushalayim and Shavuot of Sefirat HaOmer.  So we should thank HaShem appropriately for the miracles so far, but perhaps we should wait on the Hallel until Yom Yerushalayim and Shavuot itself, the latter Hallel on Shavuot said with a brachah.  But let us reflect on the words in one of the most appropriate chapters of Hallel that is apropos for this moment.  It is from Psalm 115.  You see, at the Pesach Seder the first two Psalms of Hallel, 113 and 114, are recited BEFORE the Seudah, Shulkhan Orech, because they praise G-d for the Exodus from Mitzraim.  So the last four chapters of Hallel are sung after the third cup of wine when we Praise G-d in lieu of the Final Redemption which we are right now entering.   The third cup of wine is recited over the ingathering of 6 million Jews to Eretz Yisrael from the depths of Galut while we are still at the 49th level of impurity.  It is solely a physical ingathering of the Dry Bones of our exile to the Land of Israel that has been taking place now since the students of the GR"A  and the Great Chassidic masters joined the Sephardim who were already here at the turn of the 19th Century (around 1800).  The secular Aliyot began 80 years later in the 1880s while the Socialists showed up around 1900.  We do have a mixed crew here to say the least, but it IS the physical ingathering of the Nation for better or for worse.  And the Afikomen that we eat after the Seudah on Seder night celebrates the ingathering of the 6 million while we are still at the 49th level of impurity since Matzah represents that level more than any other food at the Seder.  Now the only way to be redeemed from that level SPIRITUALLY is for the prominent Edomite nations of the world to fall to an even lower level than -49.  Thanks to Donald Trump, the Middle third of American culture is now at -50, the spiritual gutter or Abyss (Tehom in Hebrew) so that as Caesaria now lies in ruin, Yerushalayim can be spiritually rebuilt....Welcome home everyone.  

So as we turn the page in the Hagaddah from the Tzafun (Afikomen) to Birkat HaMazon and the third cup of wine, we arrive at the moment where Eliyahu HaNavi can now appear out of a techeilet blue sky in a Chariot of Fire to herald the Coming of Mashiach ben David.  And then we start to sing Hallel (Psalm 115).  Psalm 115 is a Psalm of contrasts.  It starts with a plea that HaShem redeem us from our lowly state not for our sake but for the Sake of the Sanctification of His Holy Name.  It contrasts the chotchkas of the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Churches, their physical idols, with the fact that Klal Yisrael and righteous gentiles cleave to and trust in HaShem, who cannot be molded or made in our own image or the image of something that is limited by our imaginations.  "Those who fear HaShem trust in HaShem.  Their help and their Shield is He!"    Then we sing about how HaShem blesses all the segments of G-d's Holy Nation who fear Him.  "upon us and upon our children.  We are the blessed of HaShem the Maker of Heaven and Earth."  Again we read the next contrast that the the Heavens are owned by HaShem, but He has given Olam HaZeh here on earth to Mankind.  And then the final concluding contrast between Olam HaZeh and Yemot HaMashiach...

  לֹא הַמֵּתִים, יְהַלְלוּ-יָהּ;    וְלֹא, כָּל-יֹרְדֵי דוּמָה. 17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into (or because of) Duma;  Duma can be translated as Silence in reference to gag orders and the muzzling of dissent in Shabak's torture chambers.
יח  וַאֲנַחְנוּ, נְבָרֵךְ יָהּ--    מֵעַתָּה וְעַד-עוֹלָם:
הַלְלוּ-יָהּ. 18 But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for ever. {N}
Hallelujah.

So who would like to Greet the survivors of the tortures because of Duma when they get out of their confinement?   Who wants to greet the soldiers of Mashiach ben David at the 50th Gate??

Shabbat Shalom...the end of the Week of Netzach!

And Amaleq in Edom lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, Amaleq in Yishmael was coming, and with him four hundred men.

It has begun...the Final Redemption....b'itah.  This one is most definitely it.  The Ayin Ra (gematriah 400, the Evil Eye) which has been manipulated by spiritual Edom for the last 2000 years is now turning on itself.  The Yetzer haRa is now on the mat for much more than just an 8 count.  Chaza"l tell us that the last currency of Malkhut Edom will be the currency of Amaleq, the Ayin Ra.  The Euro if spelled correctly as it should be spelled with an Ayin and not an Aleph is spelled Ayin"Reish, the acronym for Ayin Ra.  It is that currency.  Unlike the dollar it does NOT have In God We Trust written on it which prevents the dollar from being that currency spoken about by Chaza"l.  In the United Europe, a united Germany has a treaty with Rome (the Vatican) to unite and take over the world, but the empire of the EU has been a financial empire headquartered in..... Brussels, Belgium.  And now on Ta'anit Esther, the final Milkhemet Amaleq has finally begun.  

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2016/03/23/is-trains-400-fighters-to-attack-europe-in-wave-bloodshed.html.  This is a short post because time is short right now.  I am very busy.  But I wanted to get the word out.   This is incredible news in a year where the news until now has not been so good.

Some of you might say that the attack was the day before Ta'anit Esther, but I must inform you of something that I noticed after the molad for Adar Sheini.  The molad was on a Tuesday night, the 29th of Adar Rishon around 9:30 pm.  The new moon for Adar Sheini could, therefore, actually be seen already on the following night, Wednesday night, the 30th of Adar Rishon which is also Rosh Chodesh.  (This is not always the case.  As a matter of fact it usually is not the case.)  In ancient times this would mean that the First of Adar Sheini would have been declared the previous day, making the day of the Brussels attack the Fast of Esther, the day of the War against Amaleq in the Book of Esther.    Chazal had a good reason for being careful when the festivals before Tishrei fell, though.  They never wanted Yom Kippur to fall out on an Erev Shabbat or a Motzei Shabbat.  And they never wanted Hoshana Rabba to fall out on Shabbat.  So the calendar has to be "set" months in advance to prevent that from happening.  When the moon will be spotted by Eidim in the near future, this will only happen for the month of Tishrei when the problem is potentially very problematic.  But with the set calendar of Hillel haSheini, these tikkunim are set into motion at three key times in the year (the 29th of Cheshvan when a 30th day might be added,  the 29th of Kislev when a 30th day may NOT be added, and of course the 30th of Adar Rishon which only occurs if there will be an Adar Sheini in the following month.)  So with the set calendar, the tikkunim are set months in advance, something that will not continue once the months are determined by witnesses to the New Moons.

Dubiel, and the Final Alliance of the Three Bears

This post is dedicated to the Late, Great Rebbe of Erlau zt"l who, along with the 5th Admor of Sadigora zt"l, stood up against the Disengagement of Ariel Sharon.

The dye is cast. When the Vilna Gaon said that we should put on our Shabbat clothes to welcome Mashiach when the Russian Navy captures the Bosphorus, he was not just referring to Russia. He called the Power that will capture Istanbul/ Constantinople at the End of Days, "Dubiel", the Power of the Bear from Daniel chapter 7. The Power of the Lion with Eagle's Wings (rugged individualism) and the Power of the Four headed Leopard (The New World Order of which the EU is the flagship representative) simply whither away when the physical world can no longer be elevated. So this Dubiel represents at least three modern and ancient nations. In ancient times Dubiel was most represented by the Persians and the Medes. In the modern era, the Face of Edom that has this Power of the Bear is of course Russia. So in this final war we should have an "alliance" between both the ancient and modern Bears as they drive against Istanbul, the Eastern seat of the Roman Empire where Istanbul is Constantinople and where the clay (Yishmael) is mired with iron (Rome). So up until now we have had an alliance with 2/3rds of the ancient and modern bears (Persia and Russia). Now the third Bear has risen as a new but key ally of the other two bears. The Medes have finally shown us who they are. 

Everyone who knows a little bit about Kurdistan wonders privately and aloud from where does this proud people come? A little research reveals that the Kurds are adjacent and to the northwest of Persia, precisely where the ancient Medes were in relation to the ancient Persians. Kurdistan for whatever reason is known to have ancient roots, but for whatever reason, the Sands of Time seem to have hidden who they really are. Alas, now we know. They are who they have always been from ancient times. They are the Medes and therefore they are the third Bear that will now join the other two bears as Dubiel advances on Istanbul in this Final War.

The Disintegrating Statue of Nebuchadnezzar at the 50th Gate

Events are moving rather quickly now.  There is no pretending that WW3 will be delayed for several years.  In Syria there is too much inertia for Russia to re-install the Assad regime to secure its Naval Base in Tartus and its air force base outside of Latakia and for Saudi Arabia and Turkey to forestall the death of a growing Sunni Arab hegemony in Syria.  At the same time the Turks are scared of the rise of a growing Kurdish national movement in Syria and Iraq as an existential threat.  Erdogan does not have years or even months to bring the Kurdish insurgency which is threatening to overrun Eastern Turkey under control as the Kurds continue to enjoy more and more independence in Iraq and Syria as the world goes further and further into chaos.

In this post, I wanted to bring together three end of days themes into harmony.

1. The Statue of the Four Kingdoms in Nebuchadnezzer's Dream in Daniel Chapter 2
2. The vision of the Four Beasts in Daniel Chapter 7
3.  Mashiach comes Riding on a Donkey (a chamur) from Zecharia 9

Only by bringing these three themes into harmony can we begin to understand the Prophesy based on his learning of the Vilna Gaon, that Mashiach will come b'itah as a direct result of the Russian Navy bursting through the Bophorus at Istanbul (to ostensibly connect to its growing Naval Base in Tartus, Syria in the Mediterranean Sea).  In the course of this happening surely the Russian Air Force will need to have Istanbul under its control (or attempted control) in order to protect its Naval forces.  So a Russian conquest of Turkey will be necessary to achieve this disastrous result for what will turn out to be Erdogan's Last Stand.

So first let us understand the entire concept of B'itah.  Under what circumstances does Mashiach have to come, for these are the B'itah circumstances?  Because only when the world reaches a point where Olam HaZeh can no longer exist, does Mashiach have to come.  So what is the condition for Olam HaZeh that it can no longer continue to exist?  In reality there are two such conditions that are met simultaneously with each other, and not so surprisingly both conditions may very well intersect with each other at the beginning of this coming Summer (in early June or Siwan to be exact).

1. The World reaches a point where it spiritually as a whole is at Mem Tet Sha'arei Tumah (the 49th level of impurity), and it is in danger of falling below this 49th shade of grey level into the spiritual abyss from which it can no longer be rescued.

2.  The physical matter of the world can no longer be elevated to holiness or even to any higher purpose.  All the physical stuff of creation was given to Man to be used to serve G-d either through His commandments or by doing Acts of Lovingkindness with it.  As will be discussed later, the world's empires except for Persia also believed in "elevating" matter for the ideas that they believe in that in one way or another elevate man as an individual (rugged individualism) or Mankind as a collective (a New Wordly or Secular Order).  Yet, apparently the physical stuff of creation does not have an infinite use contract with its Creator.  It was only meant to be elevated so much until all the Good that it might do was extracted from the Chomer (physical material) of Creation.  And this I heard from Rav Ezriel Tauber over 20 years ago.  Once all of the good that the physical world can do has been extracted from this Chomer, all that is left is the poop of a jackass (the Chamur of Olam HaZeh).  This is actually hinted at in the Gemorrah in Sanhedrin.  Just before Mashiach comes we will be peering through the poop of the jackass (the chamur that represents the Chomer of Olam HaZeh).  Since the Fall of Adam in the Fall of the year One on Rosh HaShanah, the chamur of Olam HaZeh has carried on its back Mankind as a burden.  The Chamur eats and digests its food and in many ways provides for the physical needs of Mankind by carrying Mankind on its back.  As long as it is used by Man to both meet his needs so that he can elevate it to a higher purpose, Mankind can be the master of this jackass.  At the end of history, the jackass leaves its dung which can no longer be used by Mankind for a higher purpose.  So Man goes from riding on this jackass to staring through its dung, finding it impossible to elevate the dung.  (Some might bring up the issue of fertilizer.  Dung can be used for that, but Rav Tauber didn't bring that one up.  So I will have to defer to thinking about that for another time.)

At this point in history when the physical stuff of Creation has been extracted of all of its good, the possibility of elevation for a higher purpose becomes impossible.  The sign that we have arrived at this point is that Mankind simply wants more and more stuff, an insatiable need for more and more physicality.  Life becomes a Persian banquet from the Book of Esther where royalty feasted for weeks and months on end, for the purpose of satisfying every physical pleasure that one might dream of.  Once one physical pleasure has been fulfilled, the next more grandiose pleasure becomes the next driving force of existence.  At this point in history, all the other higher drives of Mankind have faded away except for the Force that drove the ancient Persians, the desire to accrue more and more stuff.  It is precisely at this point that Mashiach comes riding on his donkey (his chamur) that contains all of the Good in the physical world that has been elevated by G-dly people throughout history for the purpose of serving G-d.  He may be coming in a lowly way, a b'itah way, but he comes because if he did not come, the physical universe would be completely devoid of its purpose.   We may not merit his coming, but he comes nevertheless.  This is the meaning of Mashiach ben David coming to the Holy City riding on a jackass in Zecharia 9.

The question can then be asked, at what point do the inability to elevate the physical world for a higher purpose and the end of the 49th level of impurity meet when the world is about to become irredeemably extracted from the Abyss??  The answer seems to be according to Zecharia in chapter 13, when 2/3rds of Mankind is either already irredeemable or in danger of imminently falling into the Abyss.  Or this might be true for Mankind's flagship nation from Edom.  That would be the United States.  As discussed in detail before on this blog here, 5776 is the Yovel year of the 48th Yovel cycle since Ezra the Scribe established the Yovel year as the 15th and 65th year of every Jewish Century.  During the 2nd Temple, those Yovelot were distinct years and not the first year of the next Shmittah and Yovel cycles.  Once the Temple was destroyed, the potential Yovel year DID become the first year of the next Shmittah and Yovel cycle.  So ostensibly the Yovel cycles went from being 50 year cycles during the time of the Beit HaMiqdash to 49 year cycles after the Churban.  So as we follow this chart by Gedalia , the last three Yovel years before 5776 were 5629 (the 45th Yovel year), 5678 (the 46th Yovel year), and 5727 (the 47th Yovel year).   In those last three Yovel years, the Yovel achieved at least part of its Mandate, to begin to at least return Eretz Yisrael to the possession of the Jewish people.  In 5629 (1869), Mark Twain published his book Innocents Abroad which is the best selling travelogue of all time.  Most of the travelogue is about Twain's travels to Eretz Yisrael in 1867 and what he saw along the way to Yerushalayim and in Yerushalayim once he arrived.  In it Mr. Twain speaks of Eretz Yisrael lying in ruins, cursed by the Deity where so little vegetation can even grow there, a forlorn land that cannot be reclaimed from this Curse.  In Parshat Nitzavim (Deut. 29:21 we read:  
כא  וְאָמַר הַדּוֹר הָאַחֲרוֹן, בְּנֵיכֶם אֲשֶׁר יָקוּמוּ מֵאַחֲרֵיכֶם, וְהַנָּכְרִי, אֲשֶׁר יָבֹא מֵאֶרֶץ רְחוֹקָה; וְרָאוּ אֶת-מַכּוֹת הָאָרֶץ הַהִוא, וְאֶת-תַּחֲלֻאֶיהָ, אֲשֶׁר-חִלָּה יְהוָה, בָּהּ. 21 And the generation to come, your children that shall rise up after you, and the foreigner that shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses wherewith the LORD hath made it sick;
כב  גָּפְרִית וָמֶלַח, שְׂרֵפָה כָל-אַרְצָהּ--לֹא תִזָּרַע וְלֹא תַצְמִחַ, וְלֹא-יַעֲלֶה בָהּ כָּל-עֵשֶׂב:  כְּמַהְפֵּכַת סְדֹם וַעֲמֹרָה, אַדְמָה וּצְבֹיִים, אֲשֶׁר הָפַךְ יְהוָה, בְּאַפּוֹ וּבַחֲמָתוֹ. 22 and that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and a burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, which the LORD overthrew in His anger, and in His wrath;
כג  וְאָמְרוּ, כָּל-הַגּוֹיִם, עַל-מֶה עָשָׂה יְהוָה כָּכָה, לָאָרֶץ הַזֹּאת; מֶה חֳרִי הָאַף הַגָּדוֹל, הַזֶּה. 23 even all the nations shall say 'Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this land? what meaneth the heat of this great anger?'

Notice that the text of the Torah is such that many descendants of Klal Yisrael would come in that final generation before the greening of the Land of Israel, but only one foreigner would come from a faraway land to write about the Land of Israel.  That foreigner was Mark Twain.  (And Yes, Hannibal, Missouri constitutes being from a faraway land!  Yours truly can attest to that.)  It is so much about Twain that the Roshei HaTeivot (the acronym of the first two letters) of Me, Eretz R'Chokah (from a faraway land) is M-a-R-K!  Now the publication of this book was in the Yovel year 5629.  Within 30 years, the greening of Eretz Yisrael began with the First agricultural Aliyah (Chovavei Tzion or Lovers of Zion) in 1882.  The physical redemption of the Land had begun just as prophesied in the Torah, and right on schedule.  The next Yovel 5678 saw the Balfour Declaration in the Fall of that year, right after the Yovel.  Since the Land was redeemed from the Turks through the Midat HaDin, David Lloyd Gog's conquest of Yerushalayim was completed on Erev Chanukah in December of 1917.  So the return of Eretz Yisrael to its Jewish inhabitants and future inhabitants continued.  Then 49 years later in 1967 in the Spring of the year, Judea and Samaria and half of Yerushalayim were returned to the Jewish people.  Since it was to the Jewish people, it happened b'Rachamim in the Spring.

Yet, the last two Yovelot are noteworthy for another reason.  It seems that the promise of Yovel came at the cost of the spiritual greatness of the empires that Israel would eventually replace when Mashiach comes.  Keep in mind, that the next Yovel in the year 5825 is the end of the 49th Yovel cycle, and the beginning of the 50th cycle.  So what has happened in the last two Yovel cycles is that in the 47th cycle, the least G-dly one third of what was the greatest gentile nation in human history, the United States, went off the derekh (left the Camp of the Almighty) and left the fold of this gentile nation under G-d.  As noted in the article above "When Shilo Comes", it affected the culture of the US, but it did not affect the middle third of that culture.  So while it did not pervert "Main Street" as it were in the United States, women went from wearing very long dresses to the beach for mixed swimming as late as 1918 to wearing less modest clothing over the course of the Yovel cycle.  By the mid 1940s, women were wearing "Betty Grable" bathing suits to the beach.  And by the mid 60s, the bathing suits had gotten even skimpier.  Yet, through it all, Americans in general kept their G-d centered outlooks.  It was only in 1967 that what had been at the fringes of American society entered onto Main Street to bring down the Middle third, once again over 49 years.  So at this point in time 49 years later, we have reached the spiritual condition of Mankind mentioned in Zecharia 13. 

 Now Rav Chaim Vital is noteworthy for pointing out when Mashiach would come.   Rav Chaim Vital succinctly tells us that as Olam HaZeh falls below the 49th level into the Abyss, Mashiach is found at the Gateway to the 50th level (Sha'ar HaNun). Now, Ichud Yerushalayim was on the 28th of Iyar 5727, the 43rd day of the counting of the Omer. From Parshat Masei we see that the first 42 levels of purification (the Camps in the Midbar) can be done outside of Eretz Yisrael. So is it just a coincidence that the beginning of our 49 year trek in the Ba'al Teshuvah movement really began on the 43rd day of the Counting of the Omer in 5727? Of course not! The events surrounding the Unification of Yerushalayim come to teach that even though the first 42 levels of teshuvah can be done outside of Eretz Yisrael, the last 7 levels can only be achieved in total in Eretz Yisrael, starting with the core event of the Unification of Yerushalayim.  This is NOT to say that one can't reach the 49th level in Chu"l, but the path through those last seven levels should if possilbe be done in the Holy Land during which the Midah of Malkhut (the last 7 levels) can potentially be purified.  It is far more difficult to purify Malkhut outside of the Land of Israel than it is inside the Land of Israel.  Each Shmittah cycle since and including 5727, allowed us to purify ourselves through all the levels of purity. The levels of purification of Chessed corresponded to the years 5727- 5733. Gevurah 5734- 5740 Tiffereth 5741- 5747 Netzach 5748- 5754 Hod 5755- 5761 Yesod 5762- 5768 Malkhut 5769- 5775. Notice that each level of purification ended with a Shmittah year. 

At the exact same moment that Ichud Yerushalayim took place, the Summer of Ramdom Acts of Promiscuous Immorality began in June of 1967.  Coincidence??  Of course not.  At the same time that about 20% of the Jewish people began their trek toward purity with the beginning of the Ba'al Teshuvah movement, Malkhut Edom's Main Street began its 49 year downward trek toward the Abyss.  In both cases we arrive at the "endpoint" of each 49 year trek is the last week of Sefirat HaOmer this Summer of 5776.  Since this process began at the beginning of the Malkhut levels of Sefirat HaOmer in 5727, it seems to end on Shavuot 5776, another Gateway to the 50th. Now do you get the picture?? Understand deeply what Rav Vital is saying. Edom collapses into the Abyss precisely at the moment that Klal Yisrael reaches the 50th Gate of Teshuvah (for the 20% or so of Jews who are taking this seriously). I can't speak for the other 80% of American Jews. I have ceased speaking for them and their pursuit of the gutter long ago. 

to be continued as soon as possible.....But please don't use this post as a Prediction.  Right now we are discussing the conditions under which Mashiach must come b'itah, and we are trying to ascertain if we have reached those conditions.  And so far we have only discussed in full Theme #3 above, and we have brushed upon Theme #2.  So be patient.  Thank you.

The First International Bank of Amaleq

Deutsche Bank is going down.  It is a 2 trillion dollar behemoth (a monstrous domesticated animal in Hebrew).  As the dawning of the Age of the Water Bucket evolves into the month of the Fish (Adar I and II), it makes sense that the leading tower of Evil to fall would have to be this iconic Amaleqite bank of banksters.  Deutsche Bank, for instance, has a bundle invested in "Iran's nuclear program for ostensibly pieceful purposes."  So what Persia wants to accomplish with The Bomb, Deutsche Bank wants to accomplish with its lending capacity.  Don't be fooled, of course, During the Holocaust, Deutsche Bank also financed the establishment of a little known concentration camp called Auschwitz.   So they know all about the business of murdering Jews.  With Iran, they simply have found a more AIRiAN partner from the original Aryan country called Persia.

This post will have to be short but not so sweet.  But during the month when the Eye of Amaleq can't kill off the fish beneath the waters (Ephraim and Menashe), wouldn't it be wonderful if the First International Bank of Amaleq would enter the dust bin of history?

Is This the Dawning of the Age of the Water Bucket?

HT: Shirat Devorah

The world is dying.  Economically two forces in the world are leading to total collapse.  China who was growing at 10% a year is no longer growing at that pace, and now all of their reckless investments, such as in cities that they built where almost no one lives are coming to roost.  At the same time, the compact between Amalek in Edom (Obama) and Amalek in Persia could likely lead to the greatest oil glut and collapse of price that the world has ever known.  At a time when demand for oil is shriveling up like a dead flower, every nation that has shale and fracking in people's backyards is flooding the marketplace with what is becoming almost worthless crude.  In the spirit of what is happening, and in the Spirit of Parshat HaMon which should be recited tomorrow afternoon (Tues, 9th of Shevat 5776), I would like to present the following thought experiment in part based on Shirat Devorah's latest post on the planetary alignment which starts tomorrow night on the tenth of Shevat.

Since the world's parnassah was only taken care of through 5775 according to the Alter Rebbe of Lubavitch because of the 1775 shekels of silver in the Courtyard of the Mishkan in Parshat Pekudei, then by Tu B'Shevat 5776, the parnassah of the Wicked must cease in this world.  The 1775 shekels of silver in the courtyard have given parnassah in Olam HaZeh for 1775 years beyond the year 4000.  The year 4001 began the 2000 year period of Mashiach's coming, but for the last 1775 years of that period we have had the parnassah of Olam HaZeh from Parshat Pekudei.  We all know that the righteous and the beinoni only recieve the peirot on their good deeds in Olam HaZeh.  Their Keren Kayemet (the trunk and the branches) of their reward is in Olam HaBa.  The wicked, though, receive both their Keren Kayemet (the principle reward) and their peirot in this world.  

Water is decreed on the world on Hoshana Rabba.  It "officially" begins to fall on Zayin Cheshvan.  All winter long the fruit trees in E. Yisrael absorb water to feed the tree itself.  Only on Rosh Chodesh Shevat does the water begin to feed the fruit for the coming year.  So while our parnassah is decreed on Hoshana Rabba, we don't begin to see it until Tu B'Shevat when the water of fruit trees reaches the place where the fruit will eventually be (the point of Chanitah, "Budding").  The wicked on the other hand receive everything, principle + peirot, beginning on Zayin Cheshvan.  In the year of the Redemption, the wicked will still receive or have received their Keren Kayemet and their Peirot from the previous year from Zayin Cheshvan until Rosh Chodesh Shevat 5776.  Starting on Rosh Chodesh Shevat, the faux economy that they, the Wicked, have constructed since the financial collapse of 5768, the last Shmittah year, begins to fall apart.  If this is the year of destiny, we will know by Tu B'Shevat when the D'li the water bucket, the mazal for Shevat, pours water from on high onto the ground starting on Rosh Chodesh Shevat and on Tu B'Shevat it reaches  the buds where the fruit will soon appear.  But the system of the wicked set up by Obama and company 7 years ago in this world will disintegrate  So the Dawning of the Age of the Water Bucket is when the wicked cease to receive their reward in any world (this world or in the next world either).  "when the moon is in the 7th house, and when Jupiter aligns with Mars?"  I believe, that this is the meaning of the planetary alignment that is mentioned on Shirat Devorah's blog.


I should point out that Aquarius, the equivalent Mazal of the Water Bucket for the Umot HaOlam, has a face because HaShem hands the keys to rain to the angels overseeing the nations of the world.  But in E. Yisrael, HaShem does NOT hand the keys to rain to any angel to dispense rain in Eretz Yisrael.  Here in the Holy Land, HaShem reserves the keys to rain for Himself.  So In E. Yisrael alone, the Water Bucket does not have a face. 

A final salient point: 49 years ago the nations of the world got a head start toward tumah with the Summer of Promiscuous Sex in 1967.  Over 49 years the nations have reached Mem Tet Sha'arei tumah and are now by the onset of this summer in danger of falling into the abyss.  This song, Aquarius, was written in 1967 for the musical "Hair".  It only became a hit two years later in 1969 in time for Woodstock.  49 years later the side of Qedushah in the world is about to get started.  I would hazzard an educated guess that Mashiach WILL yet appear in this potential Yovel year and will grab the mantle of "Chezkat Mashiach" as the Rambam describes this matter.  Over the course of two years (in the same way that it took the forces of Tumah two years to really get rolling in 1967-1969) until 5778, he will prove himself to be the real deal and will be crowned as the Messianic king at that time, 70 years after the founding of the physical State.  Yet, if it is to be B'Rachamim in Eretz Yisrael, it should get started in Shevat, the month of the Water Bucket.  The period of Rachamim in Eretz Yisrael is of course the months when in the Northern Hemisphere the days are getting longer (Shevat, Adar I and II, Nisan, Iyar, and Siwan).  The months of Din are basically when the days are getting shorter, not including Elul only because Elul was specifically set aside for Rachamim. (From the Tenth of Tamuz, Av, Tishrei, MarCheshvan until the Tenth of Tevet).  Kislev, the month of miracles, seems to be above the mazal and is the only other month besides Tishrei (Moznaim or Scales) and Shevat (Water Bucket) where the Mazal does not have a face (Keshet or Bow).  The one thing we can say about months where the Mazal does not have a face is that during those months HaShem does not use angelic intermediaries and is therefore very, very close.  The point of this discussion is to point out that if Mashiach is coming b'Rachamim here in Eretz Yisrael in 5776, there is a narrow window of 6 months (Shevat, Adar I and Adar II, Nisan, Iyar, and Siwan) for this to come about.  Dear L-rd, let it get started right now!

GogUMagog Just Crossed Over the Threshold with a Blast of the Shofar

HaShem has been setting up Chess pieces for quite a while.  There has now been a Hurricane in Teiman on Tuesday for the first time ever.  It is the last Shofar blast of the trilogy of shofar blasts at the end of Days.  Look at Musaph Rosh HaShanah for the last three pasukim mentioned by the Nevi'im dealing with Blowing the Shofar to set the stage for the advent of Mashiach:.

And through Your servants, the Prophets, the following is written:

1. כָּל-יֹשְׁבֵי תֵבֵל, וְשֹׁכְנֵי אָרֶץ, כִּנְשֹׂא-נֵס הָרִים תִּרְאוּ, וְכִתְקֹעַ שׁוֹפָר תִּשְׁמָעוּ.
(Yishayahu 18:3)  All the inhabitants of the earth and dwellers on the land, You will see like the raising of a flag (the Israeli flag) in the mountains, and like the blast of a Shofar you will hear.

This was the founding of the State of Israel in 5708.

2.  וְהָיָה בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, יִתָּקַע בְּשׁוֹפָר גָּדוֹל, וּבָאוּ הָאֹבְדִים בְּאֶרֶץ אַשּׁוּר, וְהַנִּדָּחִים בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם; וְהִשְׁתַּחֲווּ לַיהוָה בְּהַר הַקֹּדֶשׁ, בִּירוּשָׁלִָם.

(Yishayahu 27:13) And it will be on that very day, a Great Shofar Blast will be blown, and the Lost ones (Russian Jews) in/from the Land of Ashur, and Castaways (Ethiopian Jews) in/from the Land of Egypt will come and bow before HaShem at His Holy Mountain in Yerushalayim.

This was the famous incident of the Ingathering of the Exiles that the Vilna Gaon spoke about for the years 5750 and 5751 because those years marked the 3/4 mark of the 6th millennium as if they were three quarters of the way through the 6th day of the week.  At High Noon on Yom Shishi, shofar blowers would ascend the mountains of Israel to blow the shofar to call Israel in from her fields to prepare for Shabbat.  So it would be the case 3/4 of the way through the 6th millennium.  The davening at His Holy Mountain has not yet occurred.....yet, but the ingathering surely picked up speed in those two fateful years.

Finally, the last Shofar blast in the trio of prophetic shofar blasts heralding the coming of Mashiach

3.  וַיהוָה עֲלֵיהֶם יֵרָאֶה, וְיָצָא כַבָּרָק חִצּוֹ; וַאדֹנָי יְהוִה בַּשּׁוֹפָר יִתְקָע, וְהָלַךְ בְּסַעֲרוֹת תֵּימָן

(Zecharia 9:14)  And HaShem was seen above them, and His arrow will go forth like lightning.  And the L-rd G-d will blow the Shofar, and go forth in the stormwinds of Teiman.  As if it were on cue suddenly, the news comes out:

It was most likely an ISIS planted bomb on board that Russian airliner that was downed over the Sinai. Both American and British Intelligence seem to have ominously come to this conclusion in tandem with each other. Russian news sources are reporting that bodies near the tail section show signs of explosive trauma and metal fragments along with burns from the Crash. Bodies near the front of the plane only have burns from the Crash. If this is proven to be the case, we will quickly see Natan's scenario unfold. ...very quickly. Stock up and daven. We may have just crossed over the threshold to GogUMagog.

Scream Unto the L-rd! A Prelude: The Temple Mount Trigger will Soon be in Place

I have debated back and forth whether I should post this as a regular post because I am tired of waking up the Satan to accuse the Geulah process to make it more difficult to us as I described in greater detail at the end of the Comments section in the previous post.  But this is for the Refuah Shleimah of a 13 year old boy (Na'or Shalev ben Rut Elisheva) who was on a bicycle in Pisgat Ze'ev about one week ago and who for about a week was hanging between the world of the Living and the World to Come.  He just regained consciousness with a long road of recovery ahead of him.  Until I can get my other post more fine tuned about what for some would be a controversial subject of screaming unto the L-rd, I have to basically repost what I posted yesterday about the coming of UN "Observers" to the Temple Mount like thieves in the night.  Now that the voices are getting louder, it at the very least can be simply reported on and mentioned that this is the Trigger for HaShem to Rise and to have Compassion on Tzion.  There are no predictions in this post, but a restatement of what Chaza"l tell us is the final trigger for the Final Redemption.

 HaShem brings it for His sake, not for our sake or for the sake of our houses here in Eretz Yisrael but for the sake of His House on the Temple Mount. When the nations of the World try to take away the real estate for His House, it is when He finally takes action..... When He arises and has Mercy on Tzion. But first they must come and try to take away the plot of land for His House (along with a long term UN "piecekeeping" presence).

From Yechezkel 36, just before the prophesy of the Dry Bones in Chapter 37:

יט וָאָפִיץ אֹתָם בַּגּוֹיִם, וַיִּזָּרוּ בָּאֲרָצוֹת: כְּדַרְכָּם וְכַעֲלִילוֹתָם, שְׁפַטְתִּים. 19 and I scattered them among the nations, and they were dispersed through the countries; according to their way and according to their doings I judged them.
כ וַיָּבוֹא, אֶל-הַגּוֹיִם אֲשֶׁר-בָּאוּ שָׁם, וַיְחַלְּלוּ, אֶת-שֵׁם קָדְשִׁי--בֶּאֱמֹר לָהֶם עַם-יְהוָה אֵלֶּה, וּמֵאַרְצוֹ יָצָאוּ. 20 And when they came unto the nations, whither they came, they profaned My holy name; in that men said of them: These are the people of the LORD, and are gone forth out of His land.
כא וָאֶחְמֹל, עַל-שֵׁם קָדְשִׁי, אֲשֶׁר חִלְּלֻהוּ בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל, בַּגּוֹיִם אֲשֶׁר-בָּאוּ שָׁמָּה. {פ} 21 But I had pity for My holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations, whither they came. {P}
כב לָכֵן אֱמֹר לְבֵית-יִשְׂרָאֵל, כֹּה אָמַר אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה, לֹא לְמַעַנְכֶם אֲנִי עֹשֶׂה, בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל: כִּי אִם-לְשֵׁם-קָדְשִׁי אֲשֶׁר חִלַּלְתֶּם, בַּגּוֹיִם אֲשֶׁר-בָּאתֶם שָׁם. 22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel: Thus saith the Lord GOD: I do not this for your sake, O house of Israel, but for My holy Name, which ye have profaned among the nations, whither ye came.
כג וְקִדַּשְׁתִּי אֶת-שְׁמִי הַגָּדוֹל, הַמְחֻלָּל בַּגּוֹיִם, אֲשֶׁר חִלַּלְתֶּם, בְּתוֹכָם; וְיָדְעוּ הַגּוֹיִם כִּי-אֲנִי יְהוָה, נְאֻם אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה, בְּהִקָּדְשִׁי בָכֶם, לְעֵינֵיהֶם. 23 And I will sanctify My great name, which hath been profaned among the nations, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the nations shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.

And where does HaShem rest His Holy Name?? On the Temple Mount as it says in Devarim 12:

י וַעֲבַרְתֶּם, אֶת-הַיַּרְדֵּן, וִישַׁבְתֶּם בָּאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר-יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם מַנְחִיל אֶתְכֶם; וְהֵנִיחַ לָכֶם מִכָּל-אֹיְבֵיכֶם מִסָּבִיב, וִישַׁבְתֶּם-בֶּטַח. 10 But when ye go over the Jordan, and dwell in the land which the LORD your God causeth you to inherit, and He giveth you rest from all your enemies round about, so that ye dwell in safety;
יא וְהָיָה הַמָּקוֹם, אֲשֶׁר-יִבְחַר יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם בּוֹ לְשַׁכֵּן שְׁמוֹ שָׁם--שָׁמָּה תָבִיאוּ, אֵת כָּל-אֲשֶׁר אָנֹכִי מְצַוֶּה אֶתְכֶם: עוֹלֹתֵיכֶם וְזִבְחֵיכֶם, מַעְשְׂרֹתֵיכֶם וּתְרֻמַת יֶדְכֶם, וְכֹל מִבְחַר נִדְרֵיכֶם, אֲשֶׁר תִּדְּרוּ לַיהוָה. 11 then it shall come to pass that the place which the LORD your God shall choose to cause His Name to dwell there, thither shall ye bring all that I command you: your burnt-offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which ye vow unto the LORD.

So when does HaShem redeem? When the nations of the world try to take away the place where HaShem causes His Name to dwell (The Temple Mount) in order to sanctify His Name that We Israel have profaned amongst the nations.  So the More they try to take away from us up there or down in the Valley below (The Western Wall), the faster HaShem will rise up and Have Mercy.  I find it interesting that they want to rename the Western Wall as the Buraq Wall of the Al Aksa Mosque.  Is that Buraq as in Buraq Hussein Obama??  Or is it Buraq, Muhammad's horse, as in Ole' Horseface himself, the Ba'al Kerry??  (Some might even argue that he is the horse's other end.)  The horse according to the Qabbalah is the most physical, less spiritual, of all animals.  So UNESCO the cultural expression of the dregs of Mankind want to turn the Kotel into a stable for Muhammad's horse??


Addendum to this post:  There are three reasons to continue this blog, with regular posts, now that the Fall festivals have come and gone.

1. The Temple Mount since Erev Rosh HaShanah is now the undisputed spiritual center of the conflict here in Eretz Yisrael. Now that we have reached Sha'ar Nun, the year in which the 50th year of the unification of Yerushalayim takes place (the 50th Gate, Golden Gate, or the Sha'ar HaRachamim), the final debate between Israel and the nations can now be addressed....from there.

2. The massive Russian troop force has arrived in Syria during the Feast of Sukkot. Their presence is a prelude either to a GoguMagog invasion of Israel OR hopefully the prelude to a world war which destroys this entire World of Lies. These troops started to arrive in large numbers on the very day of the final blood moon of the tetrad, the First Day of Sukkot.

3. The massive death toll from the Trampling in Mecca on the day of Qorban Yishmael, the Day after Yom Kippur here in Israel. This year 5776 I believe there was a Kiddush HaYovel in Shamayim on Yom Kippur, and HaShem Himself has decreed that Yishmael's Qorban, himself, is no longer acceptable before the Heavenly Throne.


Now Tehillim 102:  G-d willing
 אַתָּה תָקוּם, תְּרַחֵם צִיּוֹן:    כִּי-עֵת לְחֶנְנָהּ, כִּי-בָא מוֹעֵד.14 Thou wilt arise, and have compassion upon Zion; for it is time to be gracious unto her, for the appointed time is come.

Until the Geulah Comes: A Quick Review of Laws During the First 10 Days of Av

Oh, don't forget!!! Wash all of your clothes tonight and tomorrow during the day. Pick up all clothes from the dry cleaning during the day on Thursday. Tisha B'Av may fall on Shabbat, but the customs and laws of the 9 days are upon us anyway. Since there is no Shavua she'Chal bo this year, follow whatever custom you have followed in the past for Rosh Chodesh Av. Some Ashkenazim who normally don't swim during the 9 days, do swim on Rosh Chodesh Av when Tisha B'Av falls on Shabbat. Some even eat meat on Rosh Chodesh Av. During the 9 days (after Rosh Chodesh this year which falls Erev Shabbat) Ashkenazim avoid swimming, warm/hot showers, eating meat or poultry, drinking wine or grape juice, and doing any laundry and buying anything which would require a shehechiyanu bracha until the night after the fast. There are NO prohibitions this year after the conclusion of the fast on the 11th of Av (except the eating of meat at break fast). You can even say havdallah over wine or grape juice Motzei Fast of Av this year. Oh yes, this Motzei Shabbat, the 3rd of Av, say havdallah over beer or even Coca Cola with a shehakol.

Of course no live music (or for most even taped music) or haircuts or beard trims. But that was already from the 17th of Tamuz. So I did not mention that above. I believe you are allowed to cut nails this year during the 9 days except on the day of the Fast of Av itself which is a 24 1/2 hour fast with all the prohibitions of Yom Kippur, the 10th of Tishrei except that it is a Rabbinic fast. So it ends ten minutes earlier without waiting for halakhic Tzeit Kochavim. And if you must eat for purposes of pikuach nefesh, you can eat without measuring out the food and water every 15 minutes, which is done on Yom Kippur. So no leather shoes on the day of the fast. No anointing with oils on that day. No marital relations on the fast day, 10th of Av. (I cannot comment whether marital relations are forbidden on Shabbat Tisha B'Av. Ask a Rav about that. It might be permissible if it is mikveh night.) no greeting people in the regular way. A grunt might do, but no hello or goodbye or Shalom in any of its forms on the day of the fast itself. But this year you can skip the Seudat mafseket on either the 8th of Av or on Shabbat, the 9th of Av. Eat a regular Seudat Shlishit on Shabbat afternoon with the one proviso that you finish eating the third meal before sundown. One should also try to finish blessing after the third meal before sundown too since one should avoid Shir HaMa'alot after sundown Saturday afternoon. So many details that G-d willing we won't have to remember when Tisha B'Av falls out on Shabbat in 5776 too.

A few minor corrections to the above list

1. From the 17th of Tamuz we have already been avoiding shehechiyanu brachot. From Rosh Chodesh Av we avoid having to say HaTov UMaitiv or HaTov VeHaMeitiv in addition to not saying shehechiyanu. The exception to this may be if a new baby is born during the Three Weeks or the 9 Days when these brachot are recited. 

2. One can buy non-leather shoes for Tisha B'Av during the 9 days since no shehechiayanu bracha would be said.

3. On the day of the Fast of Av itself we basically cannot wash ourselves unless we need to wash our hands after #2. Then we should use soap and water on our hands only for the purpose of basic hygiene. Upon waking up in the morning if one does not need to relieve oneself, one should do neggel wasser (nail water) only up to the first knuckle. We should be rather strict about not washing ourselves on the Fast of Av and on Yom Kippur (unless we need to wash our hands for purposes of basic hygiene as mentioned) 

4. Sephardim seem to be more lenient about some of the prohibitions during the 9 days. If someone sephardi wants to post those leniencies, by all means, Post!  (I know that one of these leniencies is swimming during the entire 9 Days leading up to the fast itself except for on Shabbat of course, if Tisha B'Av falls out on Shabbat.  Of course halakhically no one swims on the Fast of Av itself.)  There is NO shavua sheChal Bo this year....or next year either....or G-d willing ever again. 

5. For whatever reason we also avoid meat on Motzei Fast of Av even if it is already the 11th of Av even though all other aspects of mourning are over when the fast ends this year. Perhaps it is just not a good idea to eat meat immediately after fasting for 24 hours.

Meidad's Prophesy: Texas, the Land of the Gogs, Under Water

Meidad: A nickname for one of two people (either one of the sons of Elitzafan ben Parnach Prince of Zevulan for whom the Land for his tribe was apportioned by Yehoshua bin Nun or Qemuel ben Shiftan, Prince of Ephraim also at the time of Yehoshua's apportionment.  See BaMidbar 34).  Meidad means Beloved of Water

According to the Targum Yonatan: Eldad prophesied that Moshe would die in the desert and that Yehoshua would lead Yisroel into Eretz Yisrael, and Meidad prophesied about the quails that would fall the next day. Whereas both of them prophesied about the battle of Gog and Mogog that is destined to take place before the coming of Mashiach.

Meidad's (Beloved of Water) prophesy for Water on the Land of Gog came true in Texas the second day of Shavuot. Both Eldad and Meidad according to Seder Olam prophesied in the Camp when the Spirit of G-d fell upon them and the newly inaugurated replacement 70 elders on the 23rd or the 24th of Iyar. According to Moshe Rabbeinu, the punishment for eating the quail was up to 30 days of pain and suffering. That included the holy Day of Shavuot that year. What is curious about Moshe Rabbeinu's charge to those who were going to eat of the quail, he told them to Sanctify themselves! for the event. Rashi says that Moshe was being sarcastic, by acerbically telling them to "Prepare yourself for pain and suffering!" When I saw that over Shabbat, it did not sit well with me that Moshe Rabbeinu would be so acerbic in his discussion with these reshayim. There is, of course, a deeper message. So I noticed that on the same day the quail was to cover the camp, 70 zekainim were inducted with the Spirit of prophesy + 2 more Eldad and Meidad, because the previous year on Shavuot we pleaded with Moshe that he act as our intercessor with HaShem so that we did not have to hear the voice of G-d anymore. Well after a year of doing just that, Moshe could no longer take the burden. So he requested of G-d that he have the assistance of the new crop of 70 elders who replaced those 70 elders who had just been killed at Taveirah for eating and drinking before G-d also on Shavuot of the previous year. So HaShem told Moshe to gather 72 men before the Tent of Meeting, 6 from each tribe not including Levi, for a total of 72. There was a lottery. 2 of the ballots were left blank. The others designated 70 of the elders to be the new Sanhedrin. Eldad and Meidad (those were not their real names) decided that they would stay behind in the Camp because they were not worthy to be amongst the 70 elders. But when the Spirit of Prophesy came down on the 70 through Moshe, both Eldad and Meidad received Prophesy in their tents directly from HaShem. So the lottery was never performed because only 70 showed up at the Tent of Meeting, and HaShem chose Eldad and Meidad to be "one of the 70" in their absence because of their humility.  And precisely because of their humility, their prophesies in the Camp, unlike the prophesies of the 70 elders at the Tent of Meeting, covered the entire span of Jewish history including Milkhemet Gog UMagog.

Here is the curious pasuk which Moshe uttered before both events (1. The Receiving of the Spirit of Prophesy by the 70 elders, Eldad, and Meidad and 2. the Coming of the Quail for those who desired flesh to eat) actually occurred:
 
יח וְאֶל-הָעָם תֹּאמַר הִתְקַדְּשׁוּ לְמָחָר, וַאֲכַלְתֶּם בָּשָׂר--כִּי בְּכִיתֶם בְּאָזְנֵי יְהוָה לֵאמֹר מִי יַאֲכִלֵנוּ בָּשָׂר, כִּי-טוֹב לָנוּ בְּמִצְרָיִם; וְנָתַן יְהוָה לָכֶם בָּשָׂר, וַאֲכַלְתֶּם. 18 And say thou unto the people: Sanctify yourselves for tomorrow, and you shall eat flesh; for you have wept in the ears of the HaShem, saying: Would that we were given flesh to eat! for it was well with us in Egypt; therefore HaShem will give you flesh, and you shall eat.

Notice that he said, "Sanctify yourselves for tomorrow, and you will eat flesh!" Huh?? such a curious way of showing contempt. What is important to remember is that he uttered these words before the candidates to be the 70 elders gathered at the tent and before all of them plus Eldad and Meidad received the Spirit of Prophesy. So in a very important way he was speaking to both groups. He was speaking to those who would truly sanctify themselves and to those who were waiting for the quail flesh to end up in their hands, between their teeth, and in their bellies. And although his happened about two weeks before Shavuot in the year 2449, in the 2nd year after we left Egypt, it sounded more like this command from two days before Shavuot the previous year: 

י וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵךְ אֶל-הָעָם, וְקִדַּשְׁתָּם הַיּוֹם וּמָחָר; וְכִבְּסוּ, שִׂמְלֹתָם. 10 And HaShem said unto Moses: 'Go unto the people, and sanctify them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their garments,
יא וְהָיוּ נְכֹנִים, לַיּוֹם הַשְּׁלִישִׁי: כִּי בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁלִשִׁי, יֵרֵד יְהוָה לְעֵינֵי כָל-הָעָם--עַל-הַר סִינָי. 11 and be ready for the third day; for on the third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.

So in a very powerful way, Moshe's command for us to Sanctify ourselves for tomorrow was a preparation of Shavuot, for some to prepare for the Spirit of Prophesy to descend that had been removed from them on the previous Shavuot and for others to fall below Mem Tet Sha'arei Tumah because of in-your-face physical pursuits. The fact that the actual Shavuot in the 2nd year in the Midbar actually took place during the 30 day period that we remained in Kivrot Ta'avah solidifies that point.


Now for an overview point about the Final Redemption: Because the Redemption from Egypt was cut short with the Sin of the Golden Calf for which HaShem was angry for 40 days and for which we repented for 40 days, receiving Kaparah on Yom Kippur 2449, HaShem wanted us to "start anew" the following year on Rosh Chodesh Nissan with the erection of the Mishkan. It actually was erected in a Trial Run on the 25th of Kislev, but the Big Show was going to resume the following Nissan. So during the 2nd year we would be given ample opportunity to get it right that time. Well we not only did not succeed in that year to "get it right" in our second opportunity, we blew it totally, and 39 more years were added to our time in the Desert. So what makes the most sense is that we first have to repair the damage of our primary Sin in the 2nd year in the Desert, the Sin of the Spies, before we can get to the point of repairing the damage for the Primary Sin in the 1st year, the Sin of the Golden Calf. It is my belief that the Summer of 5775 has been set aside to repair the damage of the 2nd year in the Desert, and that the year 5776 has been set aside to repair the damage of the 1st year in the Desert. Since Mashiach comes when HaShem's Name is complete, Mashiach comes Between the two Summers. Why? because when we overcome the Sin of the Spies, even before we repair the damage of the Eigel, we are given the opportunity to defeat Amalek in the world thereby completing HaShem's Name by Sukkot. Once HaShem's Name is complete or concurrent to that event, Mashiach ben David comes since the Final Hey in HaShem's Name corresponds to Malkhut which emanates out as the Coming of Mashiach ben David. Where do we see this? We see it this last week's parshah, Pashat Shelach Lekha: We see that after we "blew it" by crying all afternoon on the 9th of Av and all night long on the 10th of Av, we immediately see the following pasukim: 

First we see the results of the mourning for nothing when the Spies came with their depressing report:
לו וְהָאֲנָשִׁים, אֲשֶׁר-שָׁלַח מֹשֶׁה לָתוּר אֶת-הָאָרֶץ; וַיָּשֻׁבוּ, וילונו (וַיַּלִּינוּ) עָלָיו אֶת-כָּל-הָעֵדָה, לְהוֹצִיא דִבָּה, עַל-הָאָרֶץ. 36 And the men, whom Moses sent to spy out the land, and who, when they returned, made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up an evil report against the land,
לז וַיָּמֻתוּ, הָאֲנָשִׁים, מוֹצִאֵי דִבַּת-הָאָרֶץ, רָעָה--בַּמַּגֵּפָה, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 37 even those men that did bring up an evil report of the land, died by the plague before HaShem.
לח וִיהוֹשֻׁעַ בִּן-נוּן, וְכָלֵב בֶּן-יְפֻנֶּה, חָיוּ מִן-הָאֲנָשִׁים הָהֵם, הַהֹלְכִים לָתוּר אֶת-הָאָרֶץ. 38 But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, remained alive of those men that went to spy out the land.
לט וַיְדַבֵּר מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הַדְּבָרִים הָאֵלֶּה, אֶל-כָּל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל; וַיִּתְאַבְּלוּ הָעָם, מְאֹד. 39 And Moses told these words unto all the children of Israel (that they would die in the desert over the 39 remaining years out of 40 years); and the people mourned greatly.
מ וַיַּשְׁכִּמוּ בַבֹּקֶר, וַיַּעֲלוּ אֶל-רֹאשׁ-הָהָר לֵאמֹר: הִנֶּנּוּ, וְעָלִינוּ אֶל-הַמָּקוֹם אֲשֶׁר-אָמַר יְהוָה--כִּי חָטָאנוּ. 40 And they rose up early in the morning, and got them up to the top of the mountain, saying: 'Lo, we are here, and will go up unto the place which the LORD hath promised; for we have sinned.'


Then we see the pasukim about Amaleq being right there, but that we had lost the opportunity to attack them and win:

מא וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה, לָמָּה זֶּה אַתֶּם עֹבְרִים אֶת-פִּי יְהוָה; וְהִוא, לֹא תִצְלָח. 41 And Moses said: 'Wherefore now do you transgress the commandment of HaShem, seeing it shall not be successful?
מב אַל-תַּעֲלוּ, כִּי אֵין יְהוָה בְּקִרְבְּכֶם; וְלֹא, תִּנָּגְפוּ, לִפְנֵי, אֹיְבֵיכֶם. 42 Do NOT go up, for HaShem is not among you; that ye be not smitten down before your enemies.
מג כִּי הָעֲמָלֵקִי וְהַכְּנַעֲנִי שָׁם לִפְנֵיכֶם, וּנְפַלְתֶּם בֶּחָרֶב: כִּי-עַל-כֵּן שַׁבְתֶּם מֵאַחֲרֵי יְהוָה, וְלֹא-יִהְיֶה יְהוָה עִמָּכֶם. 43 For there the Amalekite and the Canaanite are before you, and ye shall fall by the sword; forasmuch as you are turned back from following HaShem, and HaShem will not be with you.'
מד וַיַּעְפִּלוּ, לַעֲלוֹת אֶל-רֹאשׁ הָהָר; וַאֲרוֹן בְּרִית-יְהוָה וּמֹשֶׁה, לֹא-מָשׁוּ מִקֶּרֶב הַמַּחֲנֶה. 44 But they presumed to go up to the top of the mountain; nevertheless the ark of the covenant of HaShem, and Moses, departed not out of the camp.
מה וַיֵּרֶד הָעֲמָלֵקִי וְהַכְּנַעֲנִי, הַיֹּשֵׁב בָּהָר הַהוּא; וַיַּכּוּם וַיַּכְּתוּם, עַד-הַחָרְמָה. {פ} 45 Then the Amalekite and the Canaanite, who dwelt in that hill-country, came down, and smote them and beat them down, even unto Hormah.


From this we see that had we not mourned over nothing that afternoon of Tisha B'Av and during that night of the 10th of Av, we would have been immediately given an opportunity to destroy Amaleq once and for all allowing the completion of the Name of HaShem where the Yud and the First Hey had played the main role in the First Redemption from Egypt, the Vav and the Final Hey would have been attached starting on Tisha B'av/ the Tenth of Av 2449. 

So is this the year of reversing that Sin, the Sin of the Spies by Tisha B'Av in order that the Name of HaShem can be complete by Sukkot?  Yes, I believe so. Then in 5776 we go about the business of establishing the beginning of the Messianic Kingdom and repairing the Sin of the Golden Calf the following 17th of Tamuz 5776.


So we needed a Siman that the 2nd year of leaving Egypt had gone into the Repair shop of Heavenly action here on earth in the year 5775. And this past Shabbat, I believe I found it. Before the Spies were sent in the 2nd year in the Desert to seal that year as a catastrophe, we had at least two sins under our belt going into the end of Siwan. 

1. the Mitonnemim at Taveirah, that is those who look for pretexts to complain. During the Onesh for that Sin, it is brought down that the Sanhedrin that had eaten and drunk before G-d during Seudat Shlishit of the previous Shavuot (which fell on Shabbat) were finally executed for being so lax in their kavod.

2. The Asaphsuph instigated sin of Complaining about the Mon and demanding Flesh: This is the Big precursor of the Sin of the Spies because unlike the Sin of the Mitonnenim more than the edge of the Camp was punished by death of vomiting up the quail through one's nose and dying a horrible death for having this ta'aivah. The Erev Rav successfully infiltrated the hearts and minds of Bnai Yisrael who were weak and susceptible to the Erev Rav's onslaught and challenge to Moshe.

Yet, at the same time, others who were not susceptible rose in Qedushah to meet G-d either at the Tent of Meeting or to the Spirit of Qedushah at the 50th level of purity on Shavuot. It was at this level that Eldad and Meidad began to prophesy. And they prophesied about many things. The one that is most often brought down is the fact that they prophesied that Moshe would die in the desert and that Yehoshua bin Nun would take us into Eretz Yisrael instead. Yehoshua, quick to prove his loyalty to Moshe that he would never be part of such a plot, wanted to throw Eldad and Meidad in jail or to kill them, one or the other. The Hebrew word used there כְּלָאֵם can mean either to jail them or to make an end of them. Yet, a prophet never sticks to one subject matter. He often goes on to the next matter. According to Rabbeinu Bachya, they continued to prophesy about Gog UMagog. And he proves this from the following verse in Yechezkel 38:17 about the Coming of Gog:
יז כֹּה-אָמַר אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה, הַאַתָּה-הוּא אֲשֶׁר-דִּבַּרְתִּי בְּיָמִים קַדְמוֹנִים בְּיַד עֲבָדַי נְבִיאֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, הַנִּבְּאִים בַּיָּמִים הָהֵם, שָׁנִים--לְהָבִיא אֹתְךָ, עֲלֵיהֶם. {ס} 17 Thus saith the Lord GOD: Art thou he of whom I spoke in ancient times by My servants the prophets of Israel, that prophesied in those days (for many years), that I would bring you (Gog) against them? {S}

So notice the above verse. that there was a Prophet of Old who spoke about Gog's Coming back in "Primordial Days or Ancient Times or Years" who prophesied "in those days". Now from that already we see that this prophesy is an ancient one so that we really don't need any more information about how old this prophesy is. But for some reason the pasuk adds the word, Shanim, which is often translated as Years Ago or For Many Years. Yet, Yechezkel had already gone to great lengths to tell us that this prophesy was an ancient one, why add the word Shanim as an afterthought? So here Rabbeinu Bachya says that we should not pronounce שָׁנִים as Shanim but as Shnayim which means "two prophets" describing the word הַנִּבְּאִים in this case meaning Eldad and Meidad. 


So the Day after Shavuot 5775, the 2nd Day of Shavuot in Chutz LaAretz, a Flood of Water came onto the world. To Where you may ask? in the Land of Gog, in Texas USA! From this we understand the pshat of the name Meidad (Beloved of Water) to indicate that the Land of Gog would be inundated by water at the End of Days right after that fateful 49th Shavuot since the 6 Day War and the Reunification of Yerushalayim. Remember, Texas is both the physical home and the political home of Gog H.W. Bush Sr. and Gog ben Gog W. Bush Jr. and now Gog P. Bush son of Jeb Bush, and elected Commissioner of the powerful Texas Land Authority. The princes of the New World Order have a home in Texas. Why? Because there is no place on earth that serves G-d to make money like Texas. Now is it better to be at the 33rd level of purity than at Mem Tet Sha'arei tumah or even the 50th level of Tumah such as in California? You will have to ask G-d. He is the one sending the Floods.

So The Geulah is in progress........


As of this writing Jeb Bush is about to announce his candidacy for President (Nasi) of the United States.  One has to wonder if HE is the American Pharaoh, not Obama, for he would be the THIRD ONE in his family to wear a Crown.   He is the Son of Gog Sr., the Brother of Gog ben Gog Jr., and the Father of Gog P. Bush, the powerful Commissioner of the Texas Land Authority.............which for some reason is always UNDER WATER these days.   One just has to wonder...

A Preview: A Tale of Two Regions: (Eretz Yisrael and California)

Updates Below:

This was going to be a post about a tale of two cities Yerushalayim and San Francisco, but I decided to make it a bit more regional at least at first because the Santa Ana winds (a dry East wind) which will be discussed in the post really blow over Southern California and not so much over Northern California.  Santa Ana is a Spanish slur word for Satanic or Devil Wind, and it for the most part blows in the Fall.  Let that stew in your head.  And Eretz Yisrael's version of the East Wind is called the Chamsin which means "50 Days", and that Wind blows between Pesach and Shavuot here.  For now we will leave that point to discuss the intro. to a more monumental post about the Gateway to the 50th level of purity vs. the Gateway through the 49th level of impurity.  In both ways, the World stands, as of now after Shavu'ot 5775, at both Gateways.  We are now in the 49th Summer since and including the 6 Day War and the Real large scale beginning of the Ba'al Teshuvah movement which began just before Shavuot in the 1967 (5727) right after the 6 Day War.  We are also entering the 49th year since and including the Summer of Sexual Promiscuity (Zimah in Hebrew) which swept America and the Western World from its starting point in San Francisco, California, also in 1967.

This post about San Francisco vs. Yerushalayim, a Tale of Two Cities will take awhile.  I am starting on it today.  Please be patient with me.  It is a monumental post I believe, to talk about the four "elements" in nature from the perspective of Qedushah vs. Mem Tet Sha'arei Tumah.  Just some advance hints:  The Four elements (earth, water, wind, and fire) really are not elements at all.  They are the four physical states of matter (solids, liquids, gases, and plasma), and there are only two places on the Globe which geographically reflect the direction from which these "elements" or physical states of matter spiritually come.  We learn from the Torah that the Menorah (fire) is in the South (of the Mishkan) while the Shulchan lechem hapanim (earth since bread is brought forth from the earth) is in the North.  The Torah (water) is in the Holy of Holies which is in the West, and the incense (air) is placed on a golden altar in the East.  From the Torah's perspective these four elements come from the Yud Key Vav Key, the Holiest of Holy Names of G-d.  In the Torah the Yud is connected to the aravot (willow branches) amongst the four species which controls the sources of water in the world.  The first Hey is connected to the lulav (date palm) amongst the four species which controls the sources of fire in the world including representing the wisdom of a Talmud Chacham such as Yonatan ben Uziel who used to burn birds with fire if they flew over his head while learning Torah.  The Vav is connected to the Hadassim (myrtle) branches which have a fragrance but no taste.  They therefore control the sources of Air in the world.  And the Final Hey is connected to the Etrog (the fruit which tastes like the bark of the same etrog tree) which controls the sources of dirt or earth in the world because the etrog tree is the only tree that grew in the way that G-d commanded the dirt of the world which was to grow trees whose fruit tasted like its bark (See Bereishit 1 dealing with the 2nd Statement for the 3rd day of Creation when G-d commanded the earth to bear forth fruit-bearing trees bearing fruit.)

When G-d created the world, he also made a mirror world for the Kochot HaTumah (Powers of Impurity).  If He had not done so, there would be no free will.  So the mirror world of Evil has to parallel the World of Qedushah.  What is intriguing is to delve into is that there are only two places on the entire planet where the Geography matches the directions of the compass from which the Four States of Matter (Elements) manifest themselves in the World.
So where in the world is there....1. a fiery desert attached to the deserts of the world in the South?

2. arable agricultural land in the North? ...
3. A Great Sea or Ocean to the West ?.... and
4. a Dry wind that blows in the springtime or the Fall from the East???

We thank G-d that here in Eretz Yisrael the Eye of HaShem rests on the Land of Israel all year round, for if His Eye did not, the four forces for Evil in the world would surely inundate us here in Eretz HaQodesh.  But alas there is one place on the planet where the Eye of HaShem does not rest all year round, and it is a place filled with taivah (lust) of the heart, taivah (lust) of the eyes,  Seichel (intellectual thought) not attached to qedushah, and the essence of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil itself which expresses itself in gaivah (arrogance), in short, all four forces for evil in the world.  Take a guess where that place is?  Think of the State and not just one of its cities.

Update #1:  We have a dispute on this post that the name Santa Ana which describes the hot, east winds in the Fall which blow through Southern California may or may not etymologically be derived from "Satanic" winds as described in the post and in my first comment on this post, or the name may be derived from Saint Anne, the mother OF the mother OF the Xtian mangod.  In Spanish her name would be Santa Ana.  In Hebrew her name would simply be Channah, lehavdil.  I stick by my research that the name was originally derived from an older Native American word for Satanic or Devilish.  The Spanish then translated the older Indian name into "the Satanic Winds" before The Roman Church changed it to Santa Ana.  Yet, there are a lot of Catholics in Southern California, and they in my estimation cleaned up the pagan origin of the name of that East wind.  This is a constant in Roman Catholic history.  They take a pagan holiday or concept, adopt it, put lipstick, rouge, and eyeliner on the pig, and pronounce it kosher.   They even have a story that St. Anne immaculately conceived St. Mary who immaculately conceived Yoshke.  So one human woman conceives a demigoddess who conceives a god.  I am sorry.  I am not cleaning up the Catholic Church's messes anymore especially after what I heard confidentially went on at King David's tomb on the Greek Pentecost this past Sunday from a reliable source.  Hint:  There were no Greeks at the tomb on Sunday, their supposed Pentecost.  They, the Greeks, were forced by the Catholics to have a little shindig for Shacharit on Monday.   The Catholics had their own ghastly ceremony at the tomb on Sunday.  I can't say anymore about this until details are verified.  So on this blog the name Santa Ana Winds has a pagan origin, and they the Catholics cleaned up the name and made it into the mother OF the mother OF their god......Nice....no, not so nice.   

more in progress, probably to be an even longer post

The Yichus of the last Mashiach ben Yosef, Bibi Netanyahu

I think that this is important I needed to share it with you.  Zecharia 12 carefully delineates the yichus of the last Mashiach ben Yosef.  So I sent this to a few people last week.  Yes, it is Bibi.   According to the Targum Yonatan, he will go into into his last Govt. with the attributes of Achav ben Omri, but the nations of the world will still seek to murder him because of his intransigence on keeping Yerushalayim in one piece.  This is what I sent to a bunch of people.  I added a link proving that he is a Levi at the end of this:

 More and more pieces are coming together right now. Bibi is the last leader of Israel until Mashiach comes. Apparently on Zech 12:

וְסָפְדָה הָאָרֶץ, מִשְׁפָּחוֹת מִשְׁפָּחוֹת לְבָד: מִשְׁפַּחַת בֵּית-דָּוִיד לְבָד, וּנְשֵׁיהֶם לְבָד--מִשְׁפַּחַת בֵּית-נָתָן לְבָד, וּנְשֵׁיהֶם לְבָד. 12 And the land shall mourn, every family apart: the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart;
יג מִשְׁפַּחַת בֵּית-לֵוִי לְבָד, וּנְשֵׁיהֶם לְבָד; מִשְׁפַּחַת הַשִּׁמְעִי לְבָד, וּנְשֵׁיהֶם לְבָד. 13 The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of the Shimeites apart, and their wives apart;

First of all, Bibi is a Levi. At the senior Likud Shabbaton in Tzefat, he took the Levi Aliyah to the Torah.  

The Ibn Ezra takes issue with Rashi's peirush that the Natan referred to in Zecharia refers to the brother of Shlomo HaMelekh. (The Ibn Ezra is a Rishon. He can argue with Rashi all he wants.) The Ibn Ezra said that even though this may be the case, it is just as likely if not more likely that the Natan being referred to here is a prophetic end of days figure who will be the pre-eminent ancestor of this last leader of the Lowly Medinah before Mashiach comes. Well lo and behold, how did Bibi get his last name? The Father of Religious Zionism and ancestor of the entire Netanyahu clan! Bibi's grandfather
No wonder why in listing Bibi's yichus, Zecharia haNavi mentions the House of Natan first after King David!!

Then Zecharia mentions that he will be a Levi.   Here he takes the Levi Aliyah to the Torah at a Shabbaton in Tzefat about four years ago:  Gam Ani Levi!

And then it mentions that he is from Shim'i ben Geira ben Kish, the nephew of Shaul HaMelekh and the ancestor of Mordechai to complete the role of Shaul HaMelekh (by destroying Amalek in the world and to repair the damage of the curse of Shim'i ben Geira which he cursed King David while he was running away from AvShalom his son).  We know pretty much for a fact that Bibi chose the date that he wanted to speak before Congress about the modern day Haman getting the nuclear bomb.  He intentionally chose Ta'anit Esther, that is when it was Ta'anit Esther in Eretz Yisrael.  This was a conscious decision.  Then of course "The Deal" between Obama and the Mullahs was announced on the 13th of Nisan, and All of Shushan (the entire world) was perplexed just as it was perplexed when Achashveirosh and Haman announced their Deal about 2400 years ago.

So Bibi fits the profile.  


1. He is from the House of Nathan.....check.
2. He is a Levi......check
3.  He has taken on the spiritual mantle of Mordechai the descendant of Shimi ben Geira......check  
In addition to this last point, it needs to be pointed out that the yichus of Bnai Rachel (sons of Rachel or sons of Osnat from Sheivet Binyamin or from Sheivet Ephraim or Menashe) to the mantle of destroying Amalek in the world is NOT patrilineal.  It is matrilineal.  I discussed this in minute detail in the Comments section of the previous post about Shushan being Perplexed Again.   You can read it there.

 His problem? Does he choose the heroic and possibly martyred role of Zecharia 12, or does he cave to world pressure, form a govt. with Livni and Buji, and bring on the End in Zecharia 14 with the splitting of the Mt. of Olives on the First day of Sukkot 5776? We will know by Lag B'Omer when the day after (On the night of the 34th day of the Omer) he has to form the 34th Govt. of the Lowly Medinah.  It is now the drop dead date.  The nations of the world are poised to divide Yerushalayim and the rest of Eretz Yisrael during the very next week or two after that if he forms a govt. with Naftali Bennett instead.  New Zealand, I believe, is even drawn up a list of a punitive measures against us if this happens by attaching these measures to the French resolution that will be proposed in the UN Sec. Council should Bibi form a right wing Govt.  (I saw an article recently that they are busy in this endeavor.  I will look for it tomorrow, G-d willing.)  And.....yes, they, these Umot HaOlam, will try to kill him.  This we know from the pages of Zecharia 12.

Here is the full text of this last half of the 12th chapter of Zecharia from Mechon-Mamre.org   

ט  וְהָיָה, בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא; אֲבַקֵּשׁ, לְהַשְׁמִיד אֶת-כָּל-הַגּוֹיִם, הַבָּאִים, עַל-יְרוּשָׁלִָם.9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
י  וְשָׁפַכְתִּי עַל-בֵּית דָּוִיד וְעַל יוֹשֵׁב יְרוּשָׁלִַם, רוּחַ חֵן וְתַחֲנוּנִים, וְהִבִּיטוּ אֵלַי, אֵת אֲשֶׁר-דָּקָרוּ; וְסָפְדוּ עָלָיו, כְּמִסְפֵּד עַל-הַיָּחִיד, וְהָמֵר עָלָיו, כְּהָמֵר עַל-הַבְּכוֹר.10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplication; and they shall look unto Me because they have thrust him through; and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his first-born.
יא  בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, יִגְדַּל הַמִּסְפֵּד בִּירוּשָׁלִַם, כְּמִסְפַּד הֲדַדְרִמּוֹן, בְּבִקְעַת מְגִדּוֹן.11 In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.
יב  וְסָפְדָה הָאָרֶץ, מִשְׁפָּחוֹת מִשְׁפָּחוֹת לְבָד:  מִשְׁפַּחַת בֵּית-דָּוִיד לְבָד, וּנְשֵׁיהֶם לְבָד--מִשְׁפַּחַת בֵּית-נָתָן לְבָד, וּנְשֵׁיהֶם לְבָד.12 And the land shall mourn, every family apart: the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart;
יג  מִשְׁפַּחַת בֵּית-לֵוִי לְבָד, וּנְשֵׁיהֶם לְבָד; מִשְׁפַּחַת הַשִּׁמְעִי לְבָד, וּנְשֵׁיהֶם לְבָד.13 The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of the Shimeites apart, and their wives apart;

יד  כֹּל, הַמִּשְׁפָּחוֹת הַנִּשְׁאָרוֹת--מִשְׁפָּחֹת מִשְׁפָּחֹת, לְבָד; וּנְשֵׁיהֶם, לְבָד.14 All the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart.





This is where the Targum Yonatan on verse 11 comes in.  He tells us in encoded language that the funeral of Mashiach ben Yosef will be akin to the funeral of the faithless King Achav ben Omri from Sheivet Ephraim and the funeral of King Yoshiyahu ben Ammon ben Menashe of Sheivet Yehudah together.  Somehow the leader who was only concerned about the physical prosperity of the Northern Kingdom is transformed into the spiritual giant of the great king of Yehudah, Yoshiyahu.  Somehow over the next five to 5 1/2 months this could, with G-d's help, come together.  What a miracle that would be!

(I wanted to get this posted tonight.  It is too important.  I will clean up the rough spots tomorrow.)
