The Pouring Forth of the Plagues of Submersion Under Water

Since I have very little time in the Coming few days to write an extensive post, I am posting here a whole Sea of Ideas in somewhat jumbled form about what is going on with all these Water plagues, the First Plagues of the Final Redemption corresponding with the Vav in HaShem's Name, right now.  Remember to Read carefully my post with all of its over 400 Comments about Meidad's Prophesy about GogUMagog in the Camp of Israel, a post from over two years ago:  Meidad's Prophesy in the Camp 

Here are my "jumbled" ideas.  There is a pouring out of G-d's Wrath along with His attempt to get us all to repent at this time.  Sorry about the jumbled nature of things.  Time is so Short.

We may have up to four Water Submersion Plagues in the month of Elul alone!! OM G-d. Water submersion plagues begin this final redemption because the Ark of Noah was submerged 11 Amot in the waters of the Mabul referring to the Vav and the Final Hey in HaShem's Name through which we are redeemed in the Final Redemption. The Redemption from Mitzraim was with the Yud and the Hey in His Holy Name. For this reason the Waters of the Flood rose 15 Amot above Mt. Ararat. The Yud was the ten plagues in Egypt, and the Hey was the the five times multiplier at the YamSuf (10 Plagues in Egypt and 50 at the Sea, 40 plagues in Egypt and 200 at the Sea, etc.) 15 steps in Dayeinu, etc. So the redemption from Mitzraim begins with Moshe Rabbeinu's little ark floating on the Nile River from which Batya, Bat Paro rescues Moshe from the Nile. Then 80 years later the first plague was when Aharon hit the SURFACE of the Nile with his staff since Moshe could not hit the surface of the Nile to perform a plague because he had hakarat Hatov that the Surface of the Nile saved his life as an infant. The First Plague in Egypt was against the principle Avodah Zarah of Mitzraim, the Nile River.

So with the Final Redemption we learn that the Ark of Noah was SUBMERGED in the Nile 11 Amot from a calculation that Rashi does based on when the Waters of the Flood began to subside on Rosh Chodesh Siwan. Then the Ark runs aground on Ararat on the 17th of Siwan. Then the peak of Ararat is seen on Rosh Chodesh Av. Since the surface of the floodwaters was 15 Amot above Mt. Ararat and since it took 59 or 60 days for the Flood waters to be seen on Rosh Chodesh Av, then the waters subsided one Amah every four days or four days per Amah. So on the 17th of Siwan, the waters of the Flood had subsided four Amot when the Ark ran aground on the mountain. So the Final Redemption unlike the first Redemption when it begins with the Vav in HaShem's Name, begins with at least two Water Submersion plagues. 


Did we mention that the First Plague in Mitzraim was against the Avodah Zarah of Egypt, the principle Avodah Zarah that most angered HaShem, the Nile River. The first plague of the Final Redemption, Harvey, first hit the principle Avodah Zara of Edom for the last 2000 years! Nope, it is not the Trinity even though that is an Avodah Zarah. The Trinity is a bizarre idea floating around in the heads of Xtains, but it is not Chayav Mitah to believe in Shituf outside of Eretz Yisrael. The Principle Avodah Zarah that is Chayav Mitah (requires the death penalty) all over the world is that the mangod can be worshiped in bodily form by sticking his Corpse on a Cross so that Catholics and Orthodox Xtians, can then kneel before him as they pray. That is the essence of Avodah Zarah, to worship statues and pictures of gods or a god in this case. Just look at the Aseret HaDibrot (Ten Commandments) itself. So whom are the worshiping? The Body of Yoshke whom they call Christ. We can call him X. And the City in Texas that was first hit by Harvey BEFORE it wandered on to Houston? Corpus Christi which is Latin for The Body of X!!!!! 

Now the following I posted on the Facebook Forum of Geulah Watch.  Some of this is repetitive of what I wrote above.  Sorry about that, but time for me is short now.  Perhaps a bit later when I have time, I will try to present this large amount of Geulah material in piece by piece form.  Frankly now, the Geulah is coming so fast like a torrent of Water, that there is not time to present this material in tiny portions.  
The Second Immersion or Submersion plague cometh. It is at least Part of Meidad's prophesy for the plagues of GogUmagog.  Meidad can best be translated as Water of Treasure or Beloved Water. The Ark of Noah rested on the waters of the Great Flood 15 Amot above the highest mountains. The first Redemption from Mitzraim was with the Yud and the Hey in HaShem's Name. The Yud manifest itself with the ten plagues, and the Hey was the 5x multiplier effect at the Yam Suf. So the First Redemption began with the rescue of Baby Moshe in his own Ark on the Surface of the Nile. And the first Plague was when Aharon's staff struck the Surface of the Nile turning the Avodah Zarah of Mitzraim into Blood. That was the Redemption from Mitzraim.
The Final Redemption is with the Vav and the Hey in HaShem's Name. Vav + Hey is Eleven. So Rashi calculates from when the Ark of Noach ran aground until the mountaintops of Ararat could be seen that the Ark was immersed beneath the waters of the Flood eleven Amot into the Water. So the Final Redemption begins with Immersion plagues below the Surface of the Water. Yet, again, though, the first Plague would first strike the Avodah Zarah of Edom for the last 2000 years, the Avodah Zarah for which Edom could be Chayav Mitah. The Trinity, although it is Avodah Zarah, is in Raiyon only. Therefore it is not Chayav Mitah. The real Avodah Zarah of Edom was to worship the mangod in his human form, often kneeling before him as they pray as he hangs from his cross. The figure on the cross is of course, Yoshke's body, the object of their worship. They called Yoshke "Christ" for which we say X. The city in Texas that was first hit by Hurricane Harvey was Corpus Christi which in Latin means the Body of X. So just like in Egypt where the Nile was struck first because it was the leading god of Mitzraim, the final redemption began with the striking of the Avodah Zarah of Edom, the Body of X. The Storm then wandered to Houston which was immersed underneath slightly more than two Amot of Water using the calculation that each Amah is about 21 inches. I believe that we will see a total of 11 Amot of water immersing the various places where the 4 to 6 plagues of the Final Redemption will at least begin before Eliyahu HaNavi shows up to herald the plagues associated with the Final Hey in HaShem's Name. Because Eliyahu tried to return the Torah to G-d, he lost the privilege of heralding the Plagues that correspond to the letter Vav in HaShem's Name. He complained to G-d that his master performance at Har Carmel went unheeded by the Klal Yisrael. Jezebel saw that noone had really changed and had sent him a note that "Today You Eliyahu won the day, but tomorrow I am coming to kill you." So he ran away, dejected and a bit depressed. He fell asleep under a rotem tree, and Michael the Archangel tried to cheer him up with food and then a second time with the eschatology for the End of Days (Medrash Sefer Eliyahu) which was for him in the distant future. So he returned to Chorev to return the Torah to G-d. So first G-d fired him, and told him to anoint Elisha in his place who would recognize the spark of every Jew being kindled in the recesses of their souls even if it could not be seen in their enthusiasm for serving G-d through external behaviors such as saving Eliyahu's life. Apparently Eliyahu had missed that point when he ran away from Jezebel. He then told Eliyahu that he would attend every Pesach Seder and every Brit Milah until Mashiach came to teach him that even the most estranged Jews still observed Pesach Seders and Brit Milah. He then lost five of the Vavs at the end of his name after this episode of him trying to return the Torah to Heaven. Four of the Vavs are missing from his name in 2nd Melachim chapter 1. And one of the Vavs is missing from Behold I am sending you Eliyah the Prophet .... before the Coming of the Great and Awesome Day of HaShem (The Hoshana Rabbah of the Final Redemption). Those five Vavs only appear in Ya'akov's name spelled with a Vav four times in Yirmiyahu and one time in VeZecharti eth Briti Ya'akov in the Tochachah in BeChukotai. From this we see that the plagues associated with the letter Vav will not be heralded by Eliyahu HaNavi. They will come out of Tzafun, that which is hidden, which precedes the third cup of wine (The Letter Vav in Shem HaShem) at the Pesach Seder. Only after the Vav has been completely manifest does Eliyah without a Vav show up in the form of Kos Eliyahu to herald the second half of Hallel and the fourth cup of wine (The Final Hey in Shem HaShem) at the Seder. So for the first four, five, or six plagues of the Final Redemption, there is no Eliyahu to herald those plagues.
At this point we need Meidad whose name refers to Water to tell us that the plagues of Water in the Final Redemption would first affect the Land of Gog immersing that Land in many Amot of Water. So the Land of Gog is none other than the Congressional district of Gog Herbert Walker Bush Sr. in Houston, Texas who was elected POTUS 3300 years after Matan Torah for his only purpose for serving G-d was to guarantee that the prosperity of Edom would exist forever at the 33rd level of purity. The 33rd level is that level because on Lag B'Omer, the Mon had fallen three times. Esav interprets that as having a chazakah on the Mon or the Money so that the Money would be there forever. At that point he builds a roof over his civilization cutting it off from Divine Providence and declaring a New World Order with him and his friends in charge of the entire world. It is known that he tried to do this. And his first act after the Persian Gulf War was to have an international pieces conference in Madrid to divide Yerushalayim and the Land of Israel. His last act as President of the US in foreign policy was to condemn Israel on the first night of Chanukah for expelling 400 Hamas thugs into Southern Lebanon at the border at the 33rd Parallel! So whip out your Chumash, and read the first pasuk in the 33rd chapter of Bereishit (which has a total of 50 chapters altogether) and it says: Bereishit 33:1
א וַיִּשָּׂא יַעֲקֹב עֵינָיו, וַיַּרְא וְהִנֵּה עֵשָׂו בָּא, וְעִמּוֹ, אַרְבַּע מֵאוֹת אִישׁ; וַיַּחַץ אֶת-הַיְלָדִים, עַל-לֵאָה וְעַל-רָחֵל, וְעַל, שְׁתֵּי הַשְּׁפָחוֹת. 1 And Jacob lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, Esau came, and with him four hundred men. And he divided the children unto Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two handmaids.
And Ya'akov lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, ESAV CAME AND WITH HIM 400 MEN! Case closed.

The Vav Plagues are the plagues associated with HaShem's hidden, emotional Sefirot: Chessed, Gevurah, Tiferreth, Netzach, Hod, and Yesod. Those plagues are NOT being heralded by Eliyahu HaNavi because he failed to see the hidden sefirot in Klal Yisrael after the Great Qiddiush HaShem he did at Mt. Carmel. He only saw the lack of Outer teshuvah. He did not see the inner teshuvah that the demonstration at Har Carmel brought about in those Northern Kingdom Israelis who were present. And since externally they did very little to prevent Jezebel from saying that she was going to kill Eliyahu the next day, he became depressed and tried to return the Torah to G-d. So Elisha was anointed in Eliyahu's place since Elisha was more adept at seeing the P'nimiyut of the miracles performed through him. This explains why usually when Elisha prophesied a miraculous salvation, it was almost always done behind closed doors in secret. Compare that to Eliyahu's miracles that always had dozens and sometimes thousands of witnesses. And so it is at the End of Days. When it is time to herald the coming of Mashiach before the entire world, Eliyahu without a Vav will be there to do it. Those plagues will be associated with the final Sefirah, Malkhut since those plagues L'taken Olam b'Malkhut Shadai. I believe they will be Fire plagues since the 7th Sefirah in the 7th hakafah on Hoshana Rabbah is all about Fire.  The nukes and the nuke plants in the way of Irma are the Fire in all this. The Floods are the Water. N. Korea's nukes are part of the Fire plagues which I believe Eliyahu HaNavi will herald according to our sources. Remember Eliyahu while he lived often caught everyone's attention with his prayers for Heavenly fire.  

The Houston immersion plague was connected to the Gog Sr. election to the Presidency in 1988, 3300 years after Matan Torah. This second immersion plague has to do with the election of his son, Gog W. Ben Gog Jr. in the year 2000, the closest and weirdest election in American history. The deciding votes were in three beach counties in South Florida where they counted ballots with hanging chads for four weeks before the Supreme Court said, "Enough of this. There are too many ballots to count!"

And now Jose, whose name is Yosef in Hebrew.  Is that hurricane associated with the final hidden emotional sefirah of Yesod, the crowning of the Vav on HaShem's Name?  Time will tell.  ..... Very little time, so it seems.  Everything is happening so so fast.  Impossible to keep up.  Sorry about that.

The Plagues of Submersion, The Trigger.

Yes, with a bang the Final Redemption has begun.  For 12 days in Tamuz/Rosh Chodesh Av, HaShem intensely desired a Dwelling in the Lower World on the Temple Mount, but the world in which we live influenced our Linguine Spined Prime Minister to capitulate to the Status Quo.  These 12 days between the 18th/19th of Tamuz and the 29th of Tamuz/ Rosh Chodesh Av can be understood by studying this chart brought down by the students of the Arizal.  Perhaps a full post on what happened this past Tamuz/Rosh Chodesh Av is in order, but for now the following will suffice.  During those 12 days the Arabs, who have controlled the Temple Mount since the 6 Day War because our Erev Rav powers that be did not want the "headache" of controlling a place so holy, were either exiled by force from the Temple Mount or self-exiled themselves from the Mount because they refused to go through metal detectors supervised by the State of Israel to prevent weapons (made of iron) from being brought on the Mount.  For His Part, HaShem was trying to enforce His first rule, chronologically listed in the Torah, for building a Temple or a Mishkan (Shmot 20:21):

 וְאִם-מִזְבַּח אֲבָנִים תַּעֲשֶׂה-לִּי, לֹא-תִבְנֶה אֶתְהֶן גָּזִית:  כִּי חַרְבְּךָ הֵנַפְתָּ עָלֶיהָ, וַתְּחַלְלֶהָ. 21 And if thou make Me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stones; for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast profaned it.

Later on in Devarim, the tools that are specifically not to be used to cut stones for the Mizbeach are listed as tools made of iron because as Chazal tell us, Iron weapons shorten life while the Mizbeach is constructed to offer up Qorbanot that prolong our lives.  (Devarim 27:4-6)  And we all know how those iron weapons that were hidden in the Al Aqsa Mosque were used to shorten the lives of those two Druze Police Officers.

  וְהָיָה, בְּעָבְרְכֶם אֶת-הַיַּרְדֵּן, תָּקִימוּ אֶת-הָאֲבָנִים הָאֵלֶּה אֲשֶׁר אָנֹכִי מְצַוֶּה אֶתְכֶם הַיּוֹם, בְּהַר עֵיבָל; וְשַׂדְתָּ אוֹתָם, בַּשִּׂיד. 4 And it shall be when ye are passed over the Jordan, that ye shall set up these stones, which I command you this day, in mount Ebal, and thou shalt plaster them with plaster (bedolach based limestone cement).
ה  וּבָנִיתָ שָּׁם מִזְבֵּחַ, לַיהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ:  מִזְבַּח אֲבָנִים, לֹא-תָנִיף עֲלֵיהֶם בַּרְזֶל. 5 And there shalt thou build an altar unto the LORD thy God, an altar of stones; thou shalt lift up no iron tool upon them.

ו  אֲבָנִים שְׁלֵמוֹת תִּבְנֶה, אֶת-מִזְבַּח יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ; וְהַעֲלִיתָ עָלָיו עוֹלֹת, לַיהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ. 6 Thou shalt build the altar of the LORD thy God of unhewn stones; and thou shalt offer burnt-offerings thereon unto the LORD thy God.

So HaShem wanted to enforce this basic rule starting on the 20th of Tamuz when those two Druze officers were murdered.  And until Jason Greenblatt got off the plane to tell Bibi to dismantle those metal detectors on the 2nd of Av in the wee hours of the morning, the Arab World refused to ascend the Temple Mount until the 2nd of Av!  For eleven magical days, only Jews went up to the Southern Court of the Gentiles through the Mughrabi Gate.  But our desire to build the Temple, collectively, was almost non-existent.  So Bibi caved like the Caver that he is before the pressure of Trump, Greenblatt, probably H.R. McMaster, and of course the King of Jordan.  But let us look at those dates.  First we know that as long as Amaleq remains in the world, the Throne of G-d is incomplete:  From Shemot 17:16

 וַיֹּאמֶר, כִּי-יָד עַל-כֵּס יָהּ, מִלְחָמָה לַיהוָה, בַּעֲמָלֵק--מִדֹּר, דֹּר.  {פ} 16 And he said: 'The hand upon the throne of the LORD: the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.'  From this we see that the word for throne כסא is spelled without an Aleph, and the Name of HaShem is spelled without a Vav and a Final Hey.  Together missing from His Throne is His Eternal Desire to dwell in our midst which is the word Ivah spelled אוה.  As it says in Psalm 132:

  בַּעֲבוּר, דָּוִד עַבְדֶּךָ--    אַל-תָּשֵׁב, פְּנֵי מְשִׁיחֶךָ. 10 For Thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of Thine anointed.
יא  נִשְׁבַּע-יְהוָה, לְדָוִד אֱמֶת--    לֹא-יָשׁוּב מִמֶּנָּה:
מִפְּרִי בִטְנְךָ--    אָשִׁית, לְכִסֵּא-לָךְ. 11 The LORD swore unto David in truth; He will not turn back from it: {N}
'Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.
יב  אִם-יִשְׁמְרוּ בָנֶיךָ, בְּרִיתִי--    וְעֵדֹתִי זוֹ, אֲלַמְּדֵם:
גַּם-בְּנֵיהֶם עֲדֵי-עַד--    יֵשְׁבוּ, לְכִסֵּא-לָךְ. 12 If thy children keep My covenant and My testimony that I shall teach them, {N}
their children also for ever shall sit upon thy throne.'
יג  כִּי-בָחַר יְהוָה בְּצִיּוֹן;    אִוָּהּ, לְמוֹשָׁב לוֹ. 13 For the LORD hath chosen Zion; He hath desired it for His habitation:
יד  זֹאת-מְנוּחָתִי עֲדֵי-עַד:    פֹּה-אֵשֵׁב, כִּי אִוִּתִיהָ. 14 'This is My resting-place for ever; here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

From this we see that on the cusp of anointing the seed of David as the Mashiach, HaShem who chose Tzion, will demonstrate an intense desire to establish His Place of permanent habitation.  But when will he demonstrate His desire?  For that we must study the Arizal's chart above.  We see that the 72 days between the 25th of Adar and the 6th of Siwan correspond to the Gematriah 72 letter name for HaShem, spelled: Yud Vav Dalet (20) Hey Yud (15) Vav Yud Vav (22) Hey Yud (15).  Notice that spelling out the letters in this way leads to a total Gematriah of 72.  Now assuming as the Arizal assumed that before the Cheit of Adam HaRishon, the lunar cycles were precisely 30 days, we see that there are precisely 72 days between the 25th of Adar and the 6th of Siwan (6 days in Adar, 30 days each in Nissan and Iyyar, and 6 days in Siwan).  Notice from the spelling above, Aleph Vav Hey do not appear consecutively during those 72 days.  The reason is because the first Redemption from Mitzraim was with the Yud and the Hey in HaShem's Name.  Because of our sins in the desert, the Vav and the Hey never had a chance to manifest themselves in that Redemption.  Moshe died in the desert.  So this basically guaranteed that throughout our long history we would be exiled (on two occasions) from our Land until Mashiach came whose soul is a merging between the soul of the scion of David and the soul of Moshe Rabbeinu.  Once Moshe's soul is drawn down into Eretz Yisrael from Sha'ar HaNun (the 50th Gate), the cycles of Churban and Exile and Redemption will come to a close.  We will not be exiled again.  So while we were redeemed from Egypt and received the Torah under the direction of G-d's approval, we began to spiritually deteriorate from our high spiritual plateau forty days after Matan Torah, on Shivah Asar b'Tamuz 2448, and in the second year in the desert by Tisha B'Av 2449.  In both cases according to the Arizal chart above, we were within the next phase of our journey, the 63 days of SaG (Samech Gimel which is 63).  This 63 days period extends from the 7th of Siwan through the 9th of Av, again with Siwan and Tamuz having 30 days each.

Now just to clarify, it should be understood, that the Gematriah 72 Name of HaShem fills the World of Atzilut during those initial 72 days, and the Gematriah 63 Name of HaShem fills the World of Bri'ah in the Year of the Final Redemption.  Since the first 72 day period had already "been perfected" by the First Redemption, it does not need to be repeated in the Final Redemption, but the corruption of our sins, the Sin of the Golden Calf and during the following year, the Sin of the Spies, corrupted the Filling of the World of Bri'ah and therefore needs to be rectified in the year of the Final Redemption which starts with HaShem showing that He has a tremendous desire to dwell on the Temple Mount.  Now keep in mind, for 49 years starting with the potential Yovel year of 5678 (Fall of 1917 -1918), HaShem provided an opportunity to make Aliyah to the Land of Israel is large significant numbers starting with the Balfour Declaration and the Conquest of Yerushalayim from the Turks by PM David Lloyd Gog, a living, breathing philo-Semite.  The 50th year of this Aliyah to the Land of Israel was interrupted by another Yovel event, the Re-unification of Yerushalayim.  This set into motion another 49 year Aliyah to the Old City and the Western Wall of the Temple Mount and to Judea and Samaria beyond the 1949 arbitrary armistice line to which we could not make Aliyah between 1948 and 1967.  In both cases we reached 600,000 Jews during or at the end of those 49 year periods.  There were 600,000 Jews in Israel by the Fall of 1947, and by 2016 there were 600,000 Jews living in Yesha and Yerushalayim beyond the Green Line.  The 50th year was 5776, but the vessel to take us to the next level Aliyah Har HaBayit was incomplete.  (There were not 600,000 Jews willing to go to the next level.)  Not enough of us were willing to go to the next level.  So even though the father of the murdered Hallel Yaffa Ariel (hy"d) wanted to tie her murder in the land of Kaleiv, Qiryat Arba, to making Aliyah to the Temple Mount by secretly doing Birkat Kohanim on the Temple Mount under the eyes of the watching policemen, the vessels of Redemption to start 50 years of Aliyat Har HaBayit were simply lacking in our minimal numbers.  There were not 600,000 Jews who desired to go to this level.  So for this reason and other reasons to be discussed at another time, the Tikkun was delayed one more year, until this year 5777.  So let us look at the letters for the Name Gematriah SaG:  Yud Vav Aleph (20, from the 7th of Siwan until the 26th of Siwan), Hey Yud (15, from the 27th of Siwan until the 11th of Tamuz), Vav Aleph Vav (13) and Hey Yud (15).  Notice that consecutively we see the Ivah that HaShem desires to dwell in the lowest world Olam HaAsiyah on the Temple Mount.  Now when were those twelve days since Aleph Vav Hey is Gematriah 12?  Well the first Vav in Vav Aleph Vav is (6, from the 12th of Tamuz until the 17th of Tamuz.  The Aleph Vav Hey (12, is from the 18th of Tamuz until the 29th of Tamuz), and the final Yud is from the 30th of Tamuz which for us is Rosh Chodesh Av until the 9th of Av.

From previous discussions on this blog, we discussed that with the advent of Hillel the 2nd's calendar, we can basically only establish the New Moons Rabbinically.  We simply do not meet the criteria of setting the months d'Oraita when we don't have witnesses appearing before the Sanhedrin.  So although the calendar is precise and accurate to 1/ 10,000 of a second, the New Moon as established here on earth through the calendar might be one day off from how Heaven sees the situation.  This is especially true in years when the molad for Rosh Chodesh that has 30 days is on Rosh  Chodesh itself.  Since while the Temple stood, Rosh Chodesh could only be declared the following day AFTER the crescent moon was seen because on that day the Musaf for Rosh Chodesh could then be offered by noon, Heaven might rule that Rosh Chodesh is indeed the following day.  Notice that I am carefully using the word MIGHT.  But one thing that seems certain, since the molad for Rosh Chodesh Av was on Rosh Chodesh itself and since this was intentionally set up by Chaza"l so that Yom Kippur would not fall on Motzei Shabbat (a big no no), the Arizal's calculation was advanced one day this year from the 18th of Tamuz to the 19th of Tamuz and from the 29th of Tamuz to Rosh Chodesh Av.  Lo and Behold the self-exile of the Arabs from the Temple Mount fulfilling the first commandment for making a Mishkan, that metal implements not be used to hew, the whole stones of the Mizbeach, was precisely during those 12 days of Ivah!!

But HaShem's entreaties not only went unanswered.  He was utterly spurned.   And unlike anytime before in history except for the Generation of the Flood, His Wrath will now be felt by the entire World.  It is from this that we received upon ourselves the First plague of the Final Redemption, The Plague of Harvey.... To be continued.

The Fire and the Fury of the Year 777

So how did this day begin?  We may be asking this question every day now until Hoshana Rabbah/ Shmini Atzereth 5778.  Well now the news is out there.  Kim Jong Un can miniaturize a nuke and place it on every rocket that goes up and comes down without burning up on re-entry, which is only  a problem with ICBMs who travel long distances in outer space.  And then there are EMPs whose rockets don't really have to come down once the warhead is launched into space.  That was how we started the morning.  Then Donald Trump issued his "Fire and Fury like the World has never Seen" remarks before what appeared to be a Cabinet meeting.    And now in retaliation, North Korea just threatened the entire island territory of Guam and Andersen AirForce Base by saying that "The KPA strategic force is now carefully examining the operational plan for making an enveloping fire at the areas around Guam with medium-to-long-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12 in order to contain the US major military bases on Guam, including the Andersen Air Force base."

So we know that after a day of  "To the Moon" major escalation toward the actual bloody conflict of the 3rd battle of the 3rd War of GogUMagog, we don't have to look far into our holy sources to see a reference to Fire being the main theme of the 7th year after 77 decades of the 6th Millennium.  We find it in our davening on Hoshana Rabbah, the 7th day of the 7 day festival of Sukkot during the 7th and final circuit around the Bimah in front of the Holy Ark.   This hakafah (Circuit) says that the main theme of this year of sevens would be Fire which would descend to earth in honor of our Avot, Moshe, Aharon, and a host of other leaders and prophets from our long history.  It goes like thus:

The Avimelekhs of the East Bank of the Yarden

The Peace with Jordan could only potentially last for three generations of Abdullahs (Avimelekhs). Just as it was with Avraham and Yitzchak with the ancient Philistines. The first Abdullah was assassinated either at Al Aksa or the Golden Dome in the early 1950s because he wanted to make Peace with Israel. The state of Israel was born in 1948 just as Avraham had been born in 1948 from Adam's sin. The second "Abdullah" was certifiably insane so that his son Hussein, the 3rd Avimelech became king for a long long reign. Eventually after the 6 Day War he repented and signed a peace treaty with Yitzchak....Yitzchak Rabin just as Yitzchak Avinu signed a second peace treaty with the 2nd or 3rd Avimelech in the Torah. Yet this Avimelech Peace Treaty with the Avot was only for three generations of Avimelech. Look at the Torah to see what was pledged with Avraham. So now with the fourth Abdullah/Avimelech the Peace Treaty is null and void.

This is of course my greatest hope.  Yet, we have a Linguine Spined Prime Minister who might make this post obsolete by sunrise on the 2nd of Av.  As it should be obvious to the world, he has NO Emunah or Bitachon with which G-d could potentially strengthen his backbone because frankly, Bibi has no backbone to speak of unless you think that a wet noodle has a backbone.  The Caver in Chief has made a career for the last 20 to 25 years out of caving before pressure.  He will not lead Israel into battle against the forces of evil unless HaShem plays tricks on him forcing him to stand strong or literally lose his life for being a coward.  When the Malbim and others postulated that the last PM of the lowly pre-Messianic State of Israel prophesied in Zecharia 12 would have the precise Yichus of Bibi Netanyahu (which he does, believe it or not) and would be Mashiach ben Yosef, the PM pierced with a dagger by Armilus at the Gateway to Yerushalayim, they likely had not met a member of the secular Judenrat like Bibi.  Yichus and all he is about as low as you can get...., until you start to examine his competition in Labor and Yesh Atid.  It seems to me that G-d is going to have to do it Himself without Bibi providing the "stirring from below" since the one posing as Mashiach ben Yosef as PM is a poor excuse for a leader even if he is 1000 times LESS poor than the electable alternatives.  ... End of Rant.

So we all might ask, Why isn't Avimelekh in Gaza near the Gerar Wadi as he was in ancient times?  Why is Avimelekh in Jordan?  Well for this we need that commentary by the Targun Yonatan ben Uziel.  We know from his peirush on Devarim 34: 1-3, that the Pshat is that Moshe saw closest to him while he stood on Mt. Nebo in Jordan which overlooks the northern tip of the Dead Sea, Yericho the City of Date Palms.  The Targum Yonatan waxes poetically about how this city called Qiryat or Qirvat Dekaliya would be evacuated by 200,000 of its fellow Jews.  Now almost everyone might think that this City of Date Palms is Yericho since, the actual text of the Torah says that Yericho is the City of Date Palms (Tamarim in Hebrew and Dekaliya in Aramaic).  Now in his commentary on this verse he does say that the Squatters in the Jewish heartland of Yehudah and Shomron would be from Ammon (as in Amman) and Moab in Yarden and that there would also be a large terrorist army in the "Maishra", the marshlands of Gaza.  He doesn't mention that the majority of those in Gaza would have the last name Masri which means Mitzri which means Egyptians, but he does say that Qirvat Dekaliya would be evacuated by its fellow Jews.  What is curious is that the entire evacuation in 2005 (5765) was in Gaza and the Northern Shomron and that the largest populated city that was evacuated was Newe Dekalim, the Beauties of the Date Palms, and that this city was in Gaza, not near Yericho!  So here we see that the entire prophesy of Moshe, as described by the Targun Yonatan, that we thought would apply to the Plain around Yericho ended up applying to the Maishrah, the marshlands of Gaza!  So if that is the case, the endtimes places were spiritually switched.  The City of Date Palms at the end of days was in Gaza, and the Avimelekhs are in Yarden.  Why?  Let me think about it.

The Timepiece for B'itah, the Koreas Leaving the Twilight Zone

Today is the Day of the Dry Bones (Yom HaAtzamot HaYevashot) when the first half of Yechezkel's prophesy on the Dry Bones occurred on the Fifth of Iyar 5708 aka Israel Independence Day (Yom HaAtzma'ut).  The difference in spelling is that Atzma'ut has one extra Aleph, the Aleph of Elokim, who decided that the time of PHYSICAL wandering for the Jewish people was coming to a close.  The spiritual prophesy on the Arba Ruchot, the second half of Yechezkel's vision, the spirit of the Messianic Era, has yet to occur.

This post is based on the previous two posts:
The Light of Mashiach Courtesy of the Korean Peninsula Leaving the Twilight Zone
and
The Two Legged Goat .

It is also based on all other posts that I have written on this blog since its inception in 2005.  Some of those posts are linked to in the first post above.  I suggest everyone review the material in all those posts because this post will incorporate in it the combined work of all posts discussed before on this blog dealing with the Korean Peninsula at the halakhic international date line.

As discussed previously according to the Vilna Gaon and others, B'itah and the ingathering of the exiles "officially" began with Rosh HaShanah 5751 (19 September 1990 at sundown) which was 3/4 of the way through the 6th Millennium and which corresponded to high noon on Friday, the 6th day of the week.  In came the Lost in the Land of Ashur (Russian Jewry) and the castaways in the Land of Egypt (Ethiopian Jewry) like clockwork as if the shofar blast at high noon on Friday to call Jews in from their fields for Yom SheKulo Shabbat had been blown precisely on time.... because it WAS blown in Heaven precisely on time.  So it was time for those two groups of Jews to come home.  (This was discussed in post #1 above.)   Keep in mind that Yom sheKulo Shabbat, the day that will always be Shabbat is the entire 7th Millennium which should "officially" begin b'itah no later than Rosh HaShanah 6001, the first year of the 7th Millennium.  Now every observant Jew knows halakhically we are allowed to bring on Shabbat as early as Plag HaMincha which is half way between Mincha Ketanah and sunset.  This would correspond with approximately being 1 and a quarter halakhic hours before sunset on Friday afternoon.  Depending on the time of year 1 1/4 halakhic hours could last 1 hour and 20 or 25 minutes in the Summer OR 1 hour and 5 or 10 minutes in the Winter.  Usually those who bring Shabbat on early do it in the Summer time when the sun sets rather late such as at 8:20 pm.  So they bring on Shabbat at 7:15pm in order not to have Shabbat dinner at an unG-dly hour late at night every week.  Now 1 1/4 hours before sunset can be calculated as being the last 1/8th of the 2nd half of the 6th Millennium or the last 1/4 of the last 250 years of human history between 5751 and 6001.  Each quarter of 250 years is equal to 62.5 years.  So from this simple calculation it would seem that b'itah cannot begin until 62 1/2 years before the end of the year 6000 in the year 5938.  That date would be a long way off, and talking about b'itah bringing the Utopian Age of human history that far into the future would be a big let down.  So why would one want to anticipate Mashiach's coming since it is obvious that he is not coming because of our merits Achishena at any hour of any day?  He is obviously coming B'itah while we are hanging on at the 49th level of impurity while Edom has beaten us to the Sewer of -50 last Shavuot 5776.  He is coming In its time very likely, and even those who say that Mashiach could come in the next five minutes agree that after Mincha Gedolah of the 6th Millennium which was in Av 5771, he is almost assuredly coming B'itah.  See our conundrum?

Into this fray comes the Zohar HaQodesh VaEira 32.  We are told that B'itah, the third battle of Gog UMagog will begin when "wicked" Rome has to fight a war against a nation  at the edge of the World for about three months.  Since the world is round, there is only one way to understand what is the "edge of the world".  The edge of the world is the halakhic international dateline.  This dateline is determined when it is high noon in Yerushalayim, for if Rosh Chodesh is sanctified for the entire world by the Sanhedrin BEFORE high noon, then Rosh Chodesh is that very day not just in Yerushalayim but all over the world.  If the Sanhedrin delayed until after high noon to sanctify the new month, then Rosh Chodesh for the entire world is not that day but the following day.  So from this we learn that at High Noon in Yerushalayim, the actual day or date of the month on the calendar is determined for the Entire World!  Since Yerushalayim is at 35 degrees longitude on the Globe, then at the moment it is high noon in Yerushalayim, it is sunset 90 degrees to the east at the 125 degree longitude mark, separating between one day and the previous day.  So 125 degrees to the east of Yerushalayim at this 125 degree mark IS the halakhic international dateline!  From a Global map we can see that this 125 degree line separates China from the Korean Peninsula in the Yellow Sea.  Approximately 2000 miles to the south of Pyongyang, N. Korea is the southern Philippines island of Mindanao where ISIS terrorists are trying to take over the island (and where President Duterte has threatened to eat them!).  The importance of this will become clearer later on either in this post or in comments.  Here we are just noting the geographical facts.  If we extend this 125 degree line into the Southern Hemisphere, we see that it cuts in half the Island nation of Indonesia through the island of Timor.  And further south, it cuts through the western deserts of the Australian continent in what is for the most part a sparsely inhabited part of Australia.  The two places where we will concentrate our understanding though will specifically be in the Northern hemisphere (Korea and the Philippines) because Yerushalayim, and its high noon timepiece is specifically in the Northern Hemisphere.  So it seems much more likely that the places of final war of GogUMagog will be at least experiencing the same season as Eretz Yisrael at the time of its onset.

Yet, as we see from previous posts about this matter, it is at this 125 degree line or "Sunset" line that we begin to have a problem.  D'Oraita, that is according to the Torah, the day may begin at Sundown, but it does not end until the stars come out the following day approximately 45 minutes AFTER sundown.  So for each potential day during Twilight, between Sundown and "Tzeit Kochavim" it is BOTH the day before Sundown and the new day after Sundown at the same time!  On the Globe we know that there are 15 degrees for each hour time zone.  So for let us say 42 minutes of Twilight, 42/60 = 10.5/15, we have 10.5 degrees of Twilight where at high noon in Yerushalayim on Rosh Chodesh or on Shabbat or on Yom Kippur, it is both the day before and the day after at the same time.  Anyone who would live in that "Twilight Zone" would need to keep two days of Shabbat out of every seven days, and they would need to fast for 48 hours on Yom Kippur!  This actually happened to the Mir Yeshivah when they escaped Nazi Germany and ended up at first in Kobe, Japan which is just inside this Twilight Zone shaded area.  The Chazon Ish ruled that the Mir refugees would need to do just that (two days of Shabbat every week and fasting for 48 hours on Yom Kippur).  They did not stay in Kobe long. They quickly moved to Shanghai in order to NOT have to live with these halakhic issues because Shanghai is significantly less than 90 degrees to the east of Yerushalayim.  So in Shanghai there is no doubt D'Oraita what day it is.  So there in Shanghai, one day of Shabbat every week and 24 hours of fasting on Yom Kippur are just fine.

Now why mention a Twilight Zone of 42 minutes?  Isn't that arbitrary?  Well actually not.  I went to MyZmanim.com, and looked up Seoul, South Korea, the capital city in the Korean Peninsula a mere 30 kilometers from the DMZ (DeMilitarized Zone or No Man's Land between N. and S. Korea).  Now here is the table that came up for the month of Nissan.  In order to view this table, you may have to log in with a UserName and Password.  You might even have to make a contribution.  They are a private site that needs funding, and who am I to complain if they want me to give them a few bucks to have access to their exact Zmanim times over the course of an entire year.  They even have a new feature to take into account the altitude of the place you might be at!    I started with Nissan because I noted that the it was at the very beginning of Tekufat Nissan that Trump sent those 59 missiles to destroy the Syrian Airforce base because Assad used chemical weapons.  Almost immediately after that the situation of the Korean Peninsula began to explode into the headlines, and Trump used his military action against Assad as a show of force to convince the Chinese to help him against Kim Jong Un.  So the Whisper of War against the country at the edge of the world did begin during the month of Nissan 5777.  Notice that the time between sunset and Tzeit Kochavim (stars coming out) is between 41 and 42 minutes for Seoul, South Korea at least during the entire month of Nissan.  Again this corresponds with an additional 10.5 degrees on the Globe AFTER the 90 degree mark east of Yerushalayim for 100,5 degrees on the Globe.

Now let us put two concepts together.  High noon on Yom ShiShi (Friday) was at Rosh HaShanah 5751 which kicked off the "official" period of intense ingathering of the Exiles.  Ostensibly it could last 250 years until the year 6001.  At the same time it is Sunset through Tzeit Kochavim on the entire Korean Peninsula.  So it is a Saffeik (a halakhic doubt) that at high noon in Yerushalayim on Friday whether that Saffeik area, between 125 degrees and 135.5 degrees, is going into Shabbat or into Thursday night at the same time.  Assuming that the Saffeik assertion that they are entering Shabbat is true, then there are 100.5 degrees on the Globe that enter Shabbat before Israel enters Shabbat.  Over the course of those 250 years, places to the east of Eretz Yisrael enter Yom sheKulo Shabbat BEFORE Eretz Yisrael enters Yom SheKulo Shabbat, that is especially with places which are within either 90 to 100.5 degrees to the east of Yerushalayim.  Yet because the first 10.5 degrees to enter are a Saffeik (A DOUBT) UNTIL those 10.5 degrees have fully entered Tzeit Kochavim so that the 90 degrees to the east then begin to enter, the period of time from Rosh HaShanah 5751 until the 10.5 degrees to the east of 125 degrees fully enter into the darkness of the starlight, Yom sheKulo Shabbat could not begin b'itah.  Upon entering the darkness of twilight, the light of Shabbat would begin to shine upon the world from the places on the Globe furthest East of Yerushalayim once there is no doubt that those places entering are now within the 90 degrees east of Yerusahalayim!  At the point that the area 90 degrees east of Yerushalayim begin to enter Yom SheKulo Shabbat, the entire area 10.5 degrees further to the east enters Yom SheKulo Shabbat with it.  From the number above we see the following:  Over the  course of 250 years, 100.5 degrees on the Globe enter Yom SheKulo Shabbat.  That is 2.5 years per degree on the Globe starting in the year 5751.  If the Twilight Zone shaded area of doubt is 10.5 degrees as it is at the DMZ and Seoul on the Korean Peninsula, then it takes 2.5 years/ degree x 10.5 degrees to bring the Korean theatre and places to the west of it in the Yellow Sea into Yom SheKulo Shabbat.  2.5 x 10.5 = 26.25 years.  Rosh HaShanah 5751 + 26.25 years is precisely Tevet of the year 5777!, this year at the beginning of the Nine Months!  From this we see that the entire Korean Peninsula has now entered Yom SheKulo Shabbat, and on Shabbat the wicked are judged.

From the Psalm 92 for the Day of Shabbat:

  ח  בִּפְרֹחַ רְשָׁעִים, כְּמוֹ עֵשֶׂב, וַיָּצִיצוּ, כָּל-פֹּעֲלֵי אָוֶן:    לְהִשָּׁמְדָם עֲדֵי-עַד. 8 When the wicked spring up as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they may be destroyed for ever.

ט  וְאַתָּה מָרוֹם--    לְעֹלָם יְהוָה. 9 But Thou, O LORD, art on high for evermore.

So as the entire Korean Peninsula now has its time guaranteed as entering Yom SheKulo Shabbat, it is from there that G-d brings judgement upon a Wicked world less that 250 years before the end of the year 6000 long before Plag HaMinchah.  

If this material is confusing, please leave a comment asking for elucidation, or if you want, you can clarify for others.  To be Continued.......

The Two- Legged Goat

In a previous post we spoke of how Klal Yisrael became like Yosef who is compared to a Bull who is a vehicle for giving parnassah to his nation.  In this post we start with the assumption that Esav is compared to a Goat.  There are many sources for this:

1. When Ya'akov fooled his father Yitzchak to think that he was his brother Esav so that he could receive Esav's brachah, he wore the skin of a goat on his arm and neck.

2. When Esav inherited his portion in this world, his first territorial inheritance was Mt. Se'ir, the Mountain of the Male Goat.  A Se'ir is a male goat.

3. Me'am Lo'ez based on the Zohar compares the meeting of Ya'akov and Esav when Ya'akov is traveling back from Lavan's house in Aram Naharai'im to the meeting of two goats on Yom Kippur.  Ya'akov goes LaShem by traveling on to the next festival, Sukkot while Esav goes to Mt. Se'ir (toward Aza'zel) to be "thrown over the cliff" there at the End of Days.

In actuality though, it is not at Mt. Se'ir, Esav's ancient homeland, where Esav is thrown over the cliff.  The text of Yishayahu 34 and 63 and the Zohar VaEira 32 from the previous post tell us that the Angel of Edom will be slaughtered in Batzrah, the modern city in southern Iraq at the confluence of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers as they enter the Persian Gulf.  These two rivers flow from Gan Eden, and their mineral wealth (50% of the world's sweet non-shale oil reserves) will only be truly valuable in Olam HaZeh.  So when Olam HaZeh makes way for Yemot HaMashiach, Esav's guardian angel will be slaughtered there.  Even the text of Yishayahu 34 compares Esav's guardian angel to a Male Goat.

 וּפָגְשׁוּ צִיִּים אֶת-אִיִּים, וְשָׂעִיר עַל-רֵעֵהוּ יִקְרָא; אַךְ-שָׁם הִרְגִּיעָה לִּילִית, וּמָצְאָה לָהּ מָנוֹחַ. 14 And the wild-cats shall meet with the jackals, and the (Se'ir or satyr) shall cry to his fellow (satyr); yea, the night-monster (Lilith, the Chief Se'ir's feminine companion) shall repose there, and shall find her a place of rest.

In this verse we see that the Sar (Heavenly Minister) of Esav is dead at this juncture because the Chief Goat, the Ministering Angel of Esav, has already been slaughtered in Batzrah, but his servant demons called satyrs in English continue to live on in this burning wasteland.  And the Heavenly Minister of Esav had a mistress named Lilith who continues to live on in this barren hell on earth with burning oil fires that are never quenched and tar on the principle rivers, the Tigris and the Euphrates, continuing to burn in smoldering fires.  

This of course happens after the oil rich Persian Gulf and the two Rivers themselves go up in flames as described in the text of Yishayahu 34, and no Red Adair will go to the Gulf to put out the fires at one million bucks per oil well, demonstrating that it will not be economically feasible to put out these oil fires in Yemot HaMashiach.  The oil just won't be worth that much as it was in 5751 after the First Persian Gulf War when "Red" Adair went to Batzrah and neighboring Kuwait to douse these fires to preserves the ancient "Red"'s inheritance called in the Torah, Shmanei HaAretz, the Oil of the earth.

Bereishit 27:    לח  וַיֹּאמֶר עֵשָׂו אֶל-אָבִיו, הַבְרָכָה אַחַת הִוא-לְךָ אָבִי--בָּרְכֵנִי גַם-אָנִי, אָבִי; וַיִּשָּׂא עֵשָׂו קֹלוֹ, וַיֵּבְךְּ. 38 And Esau said unto his father: 'Hast thou but one blessing, my father? bless me, even me also, O my father.' And Esau lifted up his voice, and wept.

לט  וַיַּעַן יִצְחָק אָבִיו, וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלָיו:  הִנֵּה מִשְׁמַנֵּי הָאָרֶץ, יִהְיֶה מוֹשָׁבֶךָ, וּמִטַּל הַשָּׁמַיִם, מֵעָל. 39 And Isaac his father answered and said unto him: Behold, of the fat places of the earth {or Oil of the earth.  (This is a double entendre.)} shall be thy dwelling, and of the dew of heaven from above;

From here we see that Esav's blessing gives him the oil of the earth cart blanche.  He does not have to have merit for it.  The dew of heaven which he also receives comes as a result of all the merits that he has in This World, but since the dew is mentioned AFTER the blessing of the oil of the earth and not before as it is with Ya'akov's brachah, the oil is not dependent upon his merits whose reward comes through the Dew.  Also the name Elokim is missing from his brachah meaning that unlike Ya'akov he will not necessarily suffer for his sins in This World.  He will only suffer from them primarily in the World to Come.  That aspect of his brachah made him extremely angry and is the source of much of his hatred for Ya'akov throughout all of history.  And at the very end of history when his merits have been used up, Esav's angel will flee to Batzrah to permanently receive his reward of the Oil of the earth.  And there the Angel, the two legged goat as we shall soon see, will be slaughtered.

 A more detailed discussion of this was presented in my 2006 post about Esav's angel fleeing to Batzrah.     I have in previous years written extensively about this topic on this blog.

A chicken has two legs called Kra'ayim, but a bull, a sheep, and a goat have four legs.  It is well known in Hebrew grammar that when there is two of something that is when things are paired, the plural form Cheerik dot followed by a Yud and a Final Mem (the regular plural form) is transformed into Patach Yud Cheerik under the Yud followed by a Final Mem.  In modern Hebrew an extra Yud is added after the Cheerik to distinguish it from the regular plural consonants of the three letter shoresh followed by a Yud and a Final Mem.  In ancient Hebrew though, no such second Yud was added.  Consonantally it was impossible to distinguish between the two forms, the regular plural form and the form that meant a pair of something.  Here are examples from the Torah and Na"kh:

From Sefer BaMidbar 22 in the story about Bilaam we see that he hit his jackass three times:

כח  וַיִּפְתַּח יְהוָה, אֶת-פִּי הָאָתוֹן; וַתֹּאמֶר לְבִלְעָם, מֶה-עָשִׂיתִי לְךָ, כִּי הִכִּיתַנִי, זֶה שָׁלֹשׁ רְגָלִים. 28 And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam: 'What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?'

Or when speaking of the three Pilgrimage festivals when in ancient times we all walked to Yerushalayim, we have this verse from Shemot 23:

יד  שָׁלֹשׁ רְגָלִים, תָּחֹג לִי בַּשָּׁנָה. 14 Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto Me in the year.

Notice in both cases the regular masculine plural form.  Now here is the form referring to pairs of legs:  Iyov (Job) 29:

טו  עֵינַיִם הָיִיתִי, לַעִוֵּר; וְרַגְלַיִם לַפִּסֵּחַ אָנִי. 15 I was eyes to the blind, and legs was I to the lame.

I specifically chose that pasuk so that you could see the Pair of limbs and organs form of both the word for Eyes and Legs in Tana"kh since almost every human being on the planet was born with two of them each.

Now from this past week's parsha, Shmini, let us look at an insect whose hind legs are for hopping and its front legs are for stabilizing their body.  These are the kosher locusts that can be eaten if you have a mesorah to know exactly which species of locusts are kosher:  VaYikra 11:

כא  אַךְ אֶת-זֶה, תֹּאכְלוּ, מִכֹּל שֶׁרֶץ הָעוֹף, הַהֹלֵךְ עַל-אַרְבַּע:  אֲשֶׁר-לא (לוֹ) כְרָעַיִם מִמַּעַל לְרַגְלָיו, לְנַתֵּר בָּהֵן עַל-הָאָרֶץ. 21 Yet these may ye eat of all winged swarming things that go upon all fours, which have jointed legs above their feet, wherewith to leap upon the earth;

Notice the Pair of limbs form of the word כְרָעַיִם.  It makes sense because for a locust, the hind pair of legs are for leaping upon the earth (as the pasuk itself says) while the front legs are only for standing on all four legs.  The hind legs have knees above the plane of the body while the front legs do not.  In this case you really have two distinct pairs of legs.  Just to point out where we are headed with this, notice the singular form of of the word Kra'ayim.  It is Kera which is a combination of both the lower and upper legs.  For a chicken the lower leg is called a shok while the upper leg known as a thigh in English is called a Yarech.  They are joined at the knee, and together they are called a Kera spelled Kaf Reish Ayin. So the Hebrew word for kneel is Korea (כֹּרֵעַ) (Yes, you read that right.)  From the Book of Esther 3 when Mordechai refused to kneel before Haman we have the following:

   ב  וְכָל-עַבְדֵי הַמֶּלֶךְ אֲשֶׁר-בְּשַׁעַר הַמֶּלֶךְ, כֹּרְעִים וּמִשְׁתַּחֲוִים לְהָמָן--כִּי-כֵן, צִוָּה-לוֹ הַמֶּלֶךְ; וּמָרְדֳּכַי--לֹא יִכְרַע, וְלֹא יִשְׁתַּחֲוֶה. 2 And all the king's servants, that were in the king's gate, knelt down, and prostrated themselves before Haman; for the king had so commanded concerning him. But Mordechai knelt not down, nor prostrated himself before him.

and   ה  וַיַּרְא הָמָן--כִּי-אֵין מָרְדֳּכַי, כֹּרֵעַ וּמִשְׁתַּחֲוֶה לוֹ; וַיִּמָּלֵא הָמָן, חֵמָה. 5 And when Haman saw that Mordechai would not kneel, nor prostrate himself before him, then was Haman full of wrath.

So now here is the important point of this post.  Starting from the first chapter of VaYikra we learn about the various Qorbanot.  In only one case are the limbs themselves burnt upon the altar.  It is with a fully burnt offering, usually a personal and voluntary one.  It is often offered up for failing to do positive commandments since the Qorban Cheit (Sin offerings) are for unintentionally transgressing the Thou shalt nots.  In all other cases, the limbs are either eaten by the Kohanim or in the case of Peace offerings are eaten by the general public in Yerushalayim when they are tahor.  Sometimes they are burnt outside the Temple Mount compound.  But in the case of the fully burnt offering or the Qorban Olah, they are burnt upon the altar.  So notice from VaYikra 1, first the Torah tells us about how to sacrifice a Bull, a Par.  Notice the words used to describe the four limbs that are burnt on the altar:

  ט  וְקִרְבּוֹ וּכְרָעָיו, יִרְחַץ בַּמָּיִם; וְהִקְטִיר הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הַכֹּל הַמִּזְבֵּחָה, עֹלָה אִשֵּׁה רֵיחַ-נִיחוֹחַ לַיהוָה.  {ס} 9 but its inwards and its legs shall he wash with water; and the priest shall make the whole smoke on the altar, for a burnt-offering, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

Now this makes sense because in the case of a four legged kosher mammal, the front legs and the hind legs serve virtually the same purpose.  It allows for the four legged mammal to walk on all four legs, and each of the four legs has a split hoof.

Yet, just four pasukim later, we read about the exact same Qorban from the flock instead of from cattle.  There should be precise parallelism since a four legged sheep or goat has legs which serve the same purpose as a four legged bull or cow.  Therefore it should read Kirbo UKra'av, meaning its innards and its legs, but it does not! 

Instead for the sheep and goat Olah it reads:
יג  וְהַקֶּרֶב וְהַכְּרָעַיִם, יִרְחַץ בַּמָּיִם; וְהִקְרִיב הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הַכֹּל, וְהִקְטִיר הַמִּזְבֵּחָה--עֹלָה הוּא אִשֵּׁה רֵיחַ נִיחֹחַ, לַיהוָה.  {פ} 13 But the inwards and the legs shall he wash with water; and the priest shall offer the whole, and make it smoke upon the altar; it is a burnt-offering, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

Now we all know that unlike a chicken or a turkey, a goat or sheep does NOT have two legs.  So it should not read Kra'aim.  It should also read either Kra'av (its limbs) or Kra'im (limbs) without the extra patach before the Yud.  I have yet to find the reason in Chaza"l why there would be this difference between the bull and an animal from the flock.  So I have to conclude it is a hint that the Qorban of Edom, who is compared to a goat, at the End of Days will have two limbs, two proxy limbs fighting each other which when the time comes will both be placed on the altar in Batzrah when Western Civilization is brought to its knees.  The two limbs?  The Korea (Kera) of the North and the Korea (Kera) of the South.

To the East we go to Enter the 7th Millennium, The Time Piece for B'itah before the Year 6000; Why it is necessary for a nation at the Edge of the World to enter Yom sheKulo Shabbat less than 250 years BEFORE Eretz Yisrael enters Yom sheKulo Shabbat in the year 6001:

The "Light" of Mashiach Courtesy of the Koreas Leaving the Twilight Zone

For several years now, basically covering the years of this blog's lifespan, I have written several posts about North and South Korea being in the Twilight Zone of our halakhic international dateline and the End of Days implications of their placement there.  As Rav Levi Sa'adia Nachmani zt"l said years ago. that the Great light of Mashiach will come from the following two cryptic verses from Parshat Ha'Azinu (Devarim 32:21-22):

כא  הֵם קִנְאוּנִי בְלֹא-אֵל,  {ר}  כִּעֲסוּנִי בְּהַבְלֵיהֶם;  {ס}  וַאֲנִי אַקְנִיאֵם בְּלֹא-עָם,  {ר}  בְּגוֹי נָבָל אַכְעִיסֵם.  {ס} 21 They have roused Me to jealousy with a no-god (atheism); they have provoked Me with their vanities (nonsensical pursuits); and I will rouse them to jealousy with a non-people (the PaLeStinians who are not a nation, just an Arab collection of  Squatters from Jordan and Egypt since the P(h).L.S(h). root in Hebrew means "to squat on someone else's land"  This is true in all Semitic languages by the way.  The derogatory name for Ethiopian Jews in the Amharic language with the same P(h).L.S(h). root,  given them by Ethiopian Xtians, was FaLaShah or Squatters in their midst.); I will provoke them with a vile nation (Tzarfat or France).
כב  כִּי-אֵשׁ קָדְחָה בְאַפִּי,  {ר}  וַתִּיקַד עַד-שְׁאוֹל תַּחְתִּית;  {ס}  וַתֹּאכַל אֶרֶץ וִיבֻלָהּ,  {ר}  וַתְּלַהֵט מוֹסְדֵי הָרִים.  {ס} 22 For a fire (a nuclear blast) is kindled in My nostril, and burneth unto the depths of the nether-world (She'ol or Seoul, South Korea), and devoureth the earth with her produce, and setteth ablaze the foundations of the mountains.

Now Rav Nachmani seemed to insinuate that the North Korean nuclear program MAY first be used against Seoul, South Korea or against Japan or even against the American Pacific Coast, but its final target address would at least be an attempt to nuke Eretz Yisrael.  So over the course of the past week we see this, lo and behold, Israel had to bomb a convoy of hi tech missiles from North Korea that were being transported in Syria to Hezbollah!    So if the missile and high grade fissionable uranium and plutonium technology, which is being produced in North Korea and disbursed to their Axis of Evil ally in Persia, is now being disbursed to Syria and Hezbollah, we are right now not far away from at least an attempt to actualize Rav Levi Nachmani's nightmare scenario.  These are telling moments and telling times while our Supreme Court focuses its evil efforts on the destruction of Jewish life in Yesha, the rest of the world makes no distinctions and focuses in on murdering all of us.  But alas they will not succeed.  G-d is overseeing this last and final ingathering of exiles which began in earnest in several stages over the last 100 years (1917, 1948, 1967, 1990-1991).  The last one was predicted by the Vilna Gaon.  The final push to ingather the exiles of Israel would take place 3/4 of the way through the 6th Millennium in the years 5750 and 5751 (1990- 1991) to fulfill the verse in Yeshayahu 27:13 that with the Teki'ah blast of a Great Shofar, the Lost ones in the Land of Ashur and the castaways in the Land of Egypt would come on Aliyah.  Since the Lost ones in Ashur were at least in part absorbed by the Khazar tribe, the tenth son of Togarmah (the Turks), who migrated north to form their 500 year kingdom between the Black and Caspian Seas and since the Khazar kingdom did convert en masse to Judaism because of the convincing arguments of Rav Yehudah Almangari (recorded in the Kuzari by Yehudah HaLeivi), and since Khazaria was destroyed by Russia around the year 1240ce dispersing Jews northward into the Pale of Settlement in Russia and the Ukraine mixing in with Ashkenzaic Jews migrating eastward, the ingathering of Russian Jewry which began in 1990 and the ingathering of the castaways from Egypt, Ethiopian Jewry, in Operation Shlomo and Sheba in 1991 were a tremendous fulfillment of this incredible prophesy, right on schedule according to the Vilna Gaon.  This ingathering began the last 250 years BEFORE Yom sheKulo Shabbat too.  According to Sefer HaLeshem, that final ingathering would take a maximum of 40 years so that Techiyah HaMeitim could begin by the year 5790, 40 years after 5750.

In order to continue this post, though, we need to pause for review of the following three posts that I wrote many years ago on this blog.

1.  The Koreas (Are) In the Twilight Zone  from December 31, 2005
and
2.  North Korea is Emerging from the Twilight Zone from September 17, 2007
and 
3.  The Korean Peninsula is Inching Closer to World War from March 31, 2013

Also ponder the following from the Zohar VaEira 32a:

Zohar 32a continued, after discussing how the Children of Yishmael were given merit for 1300 years, 400 years after the last Tanna, Yehudah HaNassi, wrote down the Mishneh because of the emptiness of Eretz Yisrael.

At that time, a nation from the end of the earth (halakhically determined international dateline) will be aroused against evil Rome and wage war against it for three months. Nations will gather there, and [Rome] will fall into their hands, until all the children of Edom will gather against it [that nation] from all the corners of the world. Then G‑d will be roused against them. This is the meaning of: "For G‑d has a sacrifice in Botzrah"(Yishayahu 34:6). (Botzrah is the city in Iraq controlled by the Shi'ite Arabs at the behest of neighboring Iran. This points to an endtimes alliance between the nation at the edge of the world (N. Korea) and Persia/Iran.) And afterwards, it is written: "That it might take hold of the ends of the earth..." (Job 38:13) He will destroy the descendants of Ishmael from the land, and break all the powers of [all the nations' guardian angels] Above. There will not remain any power of any people on earth, except the power of Israel alone. This is the meaning of "G‑d is your shadow upon your right hand". (Psalms 121:5)


Here, below, is the preceding text for the above excerpt from the Zohar from the Kabbalah On Line website from Chabad.org:


Come and see: for four hundred years (after the year 4000 when Eretz Yisrael was being emptied of Jews), the Heavenly minister of the children of Ishmael stood and begged before G‑d. He said to Him, 'whoever is circumcised has a portion in Your name'. He (G-d) said to him, 'it is so'. He (Yishmael's Minister) said to Him, 'Behold Ishmael who is circumcised. Why does he not have a portion in You like Isaac?' He said to him, 'It is not so, the one (Isaac) was circumcised properly and according to the full requirements, while the other was not so' [as Ishmael does not fulfill “periyah/uncovering of a fourth layer of skin after three are removed”]. Moreover, the ones (Children of Isaac) cleave to Me as is specified on the eighth day, while the others (Children of Ishmael) are distanced from me for many days[being circumcised only at age 13]. He [Ishmael's guardian angel] said to Him, 'But still in all, since he is circumcised, would he not have a good reward for this?'
[R. Hiyya then says] Woe is to the time that Ishmael was born into the world and was circumcised. What did G‑d do [to appease Ishmael]? He distanced the children of Ishmael from supernal cleaving and gave them [only] a portion below in the Holy Land (for 1300 years or 26 Jubilee cycles, 100 years (or more exactly 98 years) for each year when Ishmael was circumcised) on account of their circumcision.
And in the future, the children of Ishmael are destined to rule over the Holy Land for a long time when it is empty from anything, like their circumcision which is empty and imperfect. And they will prevent the children of Israel from returning to their place until the reward for the merit of the children of Ishmael reaches completion (26 Jubilee cycles of control of Eretz Yisrael in the merit of his imperfect circumcision).
The children of Ishmael [i.e. the Arab nations] will (THEN After their 1300 year reward) cause great wars in the world and the children of Edom will gather against them and wage war against them, one on the sea (First Persian Gulf War as lead by Gog H.W. Bush, Sr.), one on the dry land (2nd Persian Gulf War as lead by Gog ben Gog W Bush, Jr.), and one near Jerusalem (to be determined). And they [the children of Edom]will rule over them [the children of Ishmael], but the Holy Land will not be given over to the children of Edom. [The children of Edom is the Christian West, for Edom is Rome (see Num. 24:19Rashi) and Rome signifies Greece-Rome and the Roman Catholic Church, the foundations of Western Civilization]
Then, the following from above:
At that time, a nation from the end of the earth (halakhically determined international dateline) will be aroused against evil Rome and wage war against it for three months. Nations will gather there, and [Rome] will fall into their hands, until all the children of Edom will gather against it [that nation] from all the corners of the world. Then G‑d will be roused against them. This is the meaning of: "For G‑d has a sacrifice in Botzrah"(Yishayahu 34:6). (Botzrah is the city in Iraq controlled by the Shi'ite Arabs at the behest of neighboring Iran. This points to an endtimes alliance between the nation at the edge of the world (N. Korea) and Persia/Iran.) And afterwards, it is written: "That it might take hold of the ends of the earth..." (Job 38:13) He will destroy the descendants of Ishmael from the land, and break all the powers of [all the nations' guardian angels] Above. There will not remain any power of any people on earth, except the power of Israel alone. This is the meaning of "G‑d is your shadow upon your right hand". (Psalms 121:5)

This post is a work in process, but it does require that the three previous posts be studied and understood in light of the page of Zohar VeEira 32a from above.  I will continue with this post in a few days.

The War Against Amaleq and Machtzit HaShekel, Stage 2

Both this post and the previous post flowed from correspondence with a Rav who is a friend of this blog.  It is important to understand that the mitzvot of Adar and their special parshiyot flow one into the other.  They are not meant to be simply understood as a unit onto themselves.  They are truly the pathway to the Final Redemption which at least begins in Nissan, or more specifically in the Adar immediately preceding it, even if it also flows into Shavuot and later on into Yom Kippur and peaking in intensity during Sukkot and Shmini Atzereth when the entire world is judged.  But as Reb Nachman of Breslov said, it really begins in Adar.  Machtzit HaShekel flows into Remembering and Blotting out Amaleq.  Blotting out Amaleq flows into mitzvah of becoming pure in the ashes of the Red Heifer (Parah Adumah).  Moving into Nissan, becoming pure in the ashes of the parah adumah, seven days later, flows into sanctification of the New Moon of Nissan.  Sanctifying the New Moon of Nissan flows into the appearance of Eliyahu HaNavi to actually herald the Geulah.  Potentially a propitious time for his arrival is Motzei Shabbat HaGadol in the week before Pesach.  And finally, (at least the beginning of the end), Eliyahu's arrival leads to the Qorban Pesach on the actual site of the mizbeach on the Temple Mount.  Now although we disagree with each other on whether the 3rd Temple is coming down from Shamayim or whether we have to actually spend several years building it, we do have the opinion of Chaza"l that if other halakhic issues such as permission from the Muslims and other thorny details could be resolved, we can, if we desire, offer up the Qorban Pesach on the spot of the mizbeach even before the 3rd Temple is built or descends from Heaven!  Here is a lengthy discussion of this matter as proposed over the last 1000 years by Rav Yechiel of Paris when he came to Yerushalayim in 1257ce along with several of the Ba'alei Tosefot after the burning of 24 cartloads of the Talmud by Louie the IXth (yemach shmo) and later proposed by Rav Tzvi Hersh Kalisher in the early 19th Century.  The nugget to realize is the major difference between the Qorban Pesach and other Qorbanot is that originally it was slaughtered before the eyes of the Egyptians without either a Mishkan or a Temple or even a high place where Qorbanot Olah could be offered up on private altars.  So it is unique in this vein even though I am not sure if Qorbanot Olah can or can't be considered in the same category of offering them up on the Temple Mount without a Temple.  Like the Qorban Pesach the Qorban Olah shares its distinction of being offered up in ancient times before there was a Mishkan or a Beit HaMiqdash.  No'ach started the tradition on the day he left the Ark after the Year of the Flood.  All the other Qorbanot (Cheit, Asham, Shelamim, Todah, and others) were only commanded or were given the opportunity to be offered up once and only after the Mishkan was erected or when the Temple was built.   The point of mentioning all the above about Qorbanot is to make us all aware how in order to reach the process of offering up Qorbanot, we have to travel through these other steps in the Geulah process from Machtzit HaShekel to Eliyahu HaNavi before Offering up Qorbanot with or without a Temple becomes possible. 

Here is my correspondence with the Rav.  I should mention here that included here are several other themes that I have spoken about throughout the years of this End of Days blog.  I preface this by saying that for many survivors of the Shoah, these matters cannot be discussed.   In their minds any attempt to try to give an explanation to the magnitude of their suffering is trivializing their suffering.  On the other hand, there are some survivors who don't mind discussing this at all.  Rule of thumb:  Before discussing this with a survivor, know him/her well enough before continuing with this.  For the rest of us, I see no reason NOT to discuss this.  It is downright therapeutic to discuss the deepest, most profound reasons for the Shoah, and we can then begin to fully comprehend our suffering as a nation in order to be consoled from it.

There is an inyan about the Shoah that is often missed.  Rav Shlomo Carlebach zt"l in his introduction to the Krakow Niggun and the Klausenberger Rebbe zt"l, though, make a point of bringing it up.  The Redemption comes when there are 6 million Jews in the Land of Israel BECAUSE those in Eretz Yisrael at the Final Redemption are either gilgulim OR nitzolim from that horrible Holocaust.  So in a sense we are all survivors except that most of us were murdered and sent back into this world to witness the Final Redemption.  The Shoah was the 7th Churban spoken of in the tochachah both in Leviticus and in Deuteronomy that if we choose the lower path of rebuke with the destruction of the First Temple and then the 2nd Temple (which according to Daniel was decreed early on to be eventually destroyed), then we will be chased in "7 different directions."  The Gemorrah in Megillah tells us that each partnership between a prince in Germamia and a Prince at the Vatican in Rome would last one day.  Since there are 365 principle saints of the Roman Catholic Church and there were 300 princes in Germany, then each go around would last precisely 300 years.  So the Asarah harugei Malkhut (the 10 martyrs who died of/for Malkhut) died in the 70 years between Churban Bayit Sheini and the crushing of the Bar Kochbah Revolt and its aftermath 70 years later (70ce to 140ce).  That was the "first Churban of Malkhut Edom" and it lasted 70 years corresponding with the Ayin in Esav's name.  After that each Churban would last 300 years corresponding with those alliances between the princes of Germamia and the Vatican and the Sin in Esav's name.  So harugei Yesod corresponds with the years 140 to 440ce.  Harugei Hod corresponds with the years 440 to 740ce.  So those who were harugei Netzach died between 740 and 1040ce.  Those who were harugei Tiffereth died between 1040 and 1340ce with a final push in 1348ce when Edom blamed the Jews for poisoning the wells and causing the Bubonic Plague.  The next 300 year (1340 to 1640ce) were for those who were harugei Gevurah with a final push AGAIN 8 years later in 1648ce with the Chelminitzky massacres of Tach veTat (5408 and 5409).  And finally those who were harugei Chessed died between 1640 and 1940 for the midah of Chessed.  Yet, notice that there are precisely 21 years from the end of WW1 and WW2.  Those years were keneged the days between the 17th of Tamuz and the 9th of Av.  So the Satan figured that IF he could really top off the 7th Churban in earnest, he would have to start it BEFORE the year 1940 which would have corresponded to the 10th of Av.  So he started it two weeks before Rosh HaShanah in the Hebrew year 5699 in 1939.  Then has given 6 years from Tisha B'Av (end of 5699/ Sept 1939 until the 15th of Av (5705 or 1945ce) to complete the job of Churbanot and of chasing the Jews in 7 different directions.   Notice that those 6 years of the Shoah (5700 until 5705) correspond with the Vav in Esav's name.  So Esav's name is written out through the long period of history of being chased in these 7 different directions.  The Ayin (70ce - 140ce), the six-fold Sin (those 300 year cycles), and finally the Vav (1940 - 1945).


And now the inyan of Why??  When Yosef was sold into slavery, each brother received 2 dinar since he was sold for 20 dinar and since ten brothers were considered there for the sale.  The Dinar was 1/4 of the ancient shekel.  So each of the ten brothers excluding Binyamin who was not there from beginning to end received 1/2 of a shekel (Machzit haShekel) with which they bought shoes from the Midyanim who were also there.  Not just the Yishmaelim were there, but the Midyanim were there from whom they bought shoes with that half of a shekel.   From this we see that Yosef was not just sold for 20 dinar.  He was sold as if he were a bechor for five sh'kalim.  From this time forward, the Bechor would be redeemed with five sh'kalim even though Yosef was just the bechor of Rachel, and not the bechor for purposes of yerushah.  Ultimately Yosef's double earthly portion would be in Eretz Yisrael where he would be given two nachalot (tribal territory inheritances) not just one.  So when we were given the mitzvah for the Shabbat of Parshat Sh'kalim of Machtzit haShekel, it was originally meant as a kappara, a blotting out of the sin of Mechirat Yosef.  600,000 men would give a total of 300,000 sh'kalim in order to redeem or buy back from slavery the 60,000 men from the two tribes of Yosef.  This is an approximate calculation.  Adding the men in Ephraim and Menasheh at the first census in the desert, there were slightly more than 60,000 men.  The actual census at that time for both of them was more precisely slightly more than 72,000 combined.  I realize this, but the purpose of the mitzvah was to redeem the 1/10th of themselves that they sold into slavery.  You might say 1/11th, but this particular sin was not Yosef's sin.  Since the sin was divided amongst the ten brothers (Reuven is also for some reason considered to be at fault), they had to redeem 1/10th of themselves.  
But alas then came the Sin of the Golden Calf, the calf that was made by the Kishuf (black magic) of the Erev Rav using the plate which was meant to raise Yosef's coffin from the Nile River.  On this plate was written the words Rise Bull Rise.  Now a bull more than a goat or sheep gives its owner parnassah since a bull can pull a plow while a species from the flock cannot.  It is the main reason we see from Parshat Mishpatim why if a thief steals and slaughters a bull he must replace it with five times the monetary value of the bull while if he steals and slaughters a sheep or goat, he must replace it with four times their monetary value.  The extra dimension of a bull's value is that it provides its owner with parnassah since it can pull a plow.  Since the Calf (or the potential bull) represented the idea that we worship G-d JUST to bring prosperity, those who worshiped it confused Prosperity with Utopia (Yom sheKulo Shabbat) when prosperity is just a portion along the Way to Sinai which may be a necessary cog to create a Utopian existence here on earth.  Prosperity was secured in the desert on Lag B'Omer when the Mon(ey) fell for a third day so that we would have a chazakah on the Mon(ey), the supernatural sustenance for our entire time in the Desert from the 31st day of the Omer in 2448 until we could eat the grain of the new agricultural year in Eretz Yisrael on the 2nd day of Pesach 2488, 40 years later.  But of course we continued all the way to the 49th day of the Omer in our first year in the desert and then onto the transcendent 50th day to receive the Torah because until the 33rd level the purpose for serving G-d is to be blessed with prosperity while from 33 until 50 the purpose for being prosperous is to serve G-d.  Notice the converse is true only after Lag B'Omer.  Notice from here that the ultimate purpose of Prosperity is therefore to make serving G-d lishma (for its own sake) easier.  From this we see that the purpose is to serve G-d for its own sake, and prosperity is what helps significantly to make that possible.  By worshiping the idea that the Shekhinah could dwell between the horns of the potential Bull, though, those doing so were saying that they would be happy only to rise until the 33rd level of purity in order to get the prosperity and not higher than that since the be all and end all of Utopia IS the prosperity that we can get out of it.  By doing this, those who wanted to worship the Shekhinah in this way were saying that they were not interested in doing what was right in G-d's eyes lishma.  They just wanted the (Mon)ey which comes from doing so at the 31st, 32nd, and 33rd levels of purity, but they would not progress further, G-d forbid!!!  As discussed elsewhere on this blog, we see this in Malkhut Edom a lot since Xtianity does afford one with the mistaken opportunity to believe that one's world to come has already been given to them as a free gift by virtue of what one believes not what one does.  So then the question comes up about why one should do the right thing in this world in G-d's eyes, and the answer is often (not always) that doing the right thing helps one prosper because of Divine favor.  So the 33rd level of purity is the peak of one's service in Malkhut Edom from Xtianity (some Xtians not all) to Free-Masonry.  Now since Yosef more than any other tribe represents the ability to give parnassah, in a very strange way they were worshiping Yosef himself when they bowed down to the Golden Calf!  Remember originally the Bull that arose from the Nile was the bones of Yosef.  Suddenly not only Yosef was enslaved in Mitzraim.  The transformation that took place at the Cheit HaEigel was that all 600,000 men excluding Leivi became like Yosef himself, enslaved once again in Mitzraim, the Mitzraim from which they just had been redeemed!!!  And how many Jews must give Machtzit HaShekel at the end of days in order to redeem those 600,000 slaves who sold themselves to the foreign parnassah god?... The answer is 10 x 600,000 = 6 million Jews, for 6 million Jews giving 1/2 of a shekel redeem all of those 600,000 Yosefs who became Yosef, the slave, by serving the Golden Calf.  By the way there will need to be another 6 million Jews in the world to accomplish this for a total of 12 million because half of us are women who do not have the mitzvah of giving Machtzit HaShekel.

So where do we see that 6 million were bought by Amaleq for Churban in order to achieve that there would be 6 million reincarnated Jews in the Land of Israel to welcome the Messianic Era in the merit of those who were murdered??  It is in the Book of Esther when Haman purchases the Jews of the Persian Empire for 10,000 kikar of silver.  According to Chaza"l of course, Haman as Amaleq is purchasing every Jew in the world for slaughter.  And he was purchasing those Jews from G-d Himself since the reference for Ginzei HaMelekh (Treasury of the King) does not mention the name Achashveirosh.  In the Megillah when it simply says HaMelekh, it refers to the King of Kings of kings.  3:9

  אִם-עַל-הַמֶּלֶךְ טוֹב, יִכָּתֵב לְאַבְּדָם; וַעֲשֶׂרֶת אֲלָפִים כִּכַּר-כֶּסֶף, אֶשְׁקוֹל עַל-יְדֵי עֹשֵׂי הַמְּלָאכָה, לְהָבִיא, אֶל-גִּנְזֵי הַמֶּלֶךְ. 9 If it please the King, let it be written that they be destroyed; and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver into the hands of those that have the charge of the king's business, to bring it into the King's treasuries.

So how many Jews did Haman purchase IF we accept that at the Golden Calf we had all become like Yosef who could be redeemed with 5 silver sh'kalim??   Well the answer to that lies in the conversion factor in Parshat Pekudei in the Book of Exodus when we are told that from the 300,000 silver shkalim collected from the 600,000 (excluding the 3550 who gave an additional 1775 shekalim), Betzalel made 100 adanim each weighing one kikar.  So from here we see 300,000 shekels of silver equals 100 kikar, or we see that there are precisely 3000 shekels per kikar!  So getting back to the number of Jews that Haman purchased for slaughter we see that he placed 10,000 kikar into the ginzei HaMelekh x 3000 shekels per kikar equals 30 million shekalim.  30 million shekalim divided by 5 shekalim for each Jew who is like Yosef equals 6 million Jews.  Haman purchased 6 million Jews for slaughter.... and HaShem said not yet, not in that generation.  But at the End of Days so that there will be 6 million Jews in the Land of Israel to welcome Mashiach, I HaShem will accept your price in the generation prior to Mashiach in order to give unbelievable merit in the Final Generation of 6 million Jews so that in the third war of GogUMagog the final war, the 3rd world war WW3, the one between Edom and Persia (or Dubi'el including Persia and Russia as the Vilna Gaon said), those 6 million will survive to give Machzit HaShekel in order to redeem the original 600,000 from the Cheit HaEigel.  

I should mention the obvious with regards to the 7 Cycles of Churban in the world.  Notice that the purification of Hod through suffering really ended in the 8th year of the next cycle in 1348 when there was a massive pogrom because of the poisoning of the wells.  And again Gevurah purification was finally complete with Tach veTat in 1648.  From this we see that the Chesed purification did not require another Churban in 1948.  LeHefech...the opposite occurred.

Also there is another reason why the cycles of Churban were 300 years apart.  The Cheshbon (the spiritually negative residue) on our sins even after repentance and the sins of Mankind must be cleansed every 300 years.  This is because of the original covenant of the rainbow which HaShem showed Noach after offering up one from each species of pure animals after the Flood.  The Brit or Covenant of the Rainbow with Noach was only half a rainbow.  This is from the Zohar .... That HaShem would only allow Mankind to metamei (make impure) the planet earth up to the half-way point before sending the correction upon the world.  So if it took 600 years of Noach's life to open up all ten gates to the Waters of the Deep bringing on the Great Flood, it would take only 300 years of Cheshbonot (spiritually negative residue) on Sins to open up half of those gates causing HaShem to send the Churban (as destruction to the Jews) in lieu of the Qorbanot that could not be offered up in a destroyed Temple.  This is why the Churbanot had to be spaced apart by 300 years, not 600 years.  If HaShem had waited 600 years, He would have had to destroy the world again. During the time of the Temples we had Qorbanot which did this job.  We had our own system of Qorbonot Olah and Cheit, and the nations of the world had their 70 bulls (notice it is bulls as in Yosefs) during Sukkot.  When there was no longer a Temple because of our sins, WE, the Jewish people, became the Qorbanot for the nations of the world in lieu of there being no bulls offered up because there was no longer a Temple.  So we became the Yosefs that died.  So while the physical world in total is purified of the Cheshbon of sins, the ones who were murdered get Heavenly reward in the World to Come. Over the course of history there have been 70 bulls for slaughter.  We specifically know about the ten harugei Malkhut.  In the same way there are in a sense ten principle harugim for each of the sefirot of the nefesh behamit leading to a total of 70 principle harugim.  But again notice it was bulls.  This more than anything else explains why we were considered as if we were all Yosefs dying in the Shoah.  6 million Yosefs or Bulls for slaughter.  (At this point I could link to the song Dona Dona, but it is sung by singer Joan Baez.  So I can't link to it.)  It is ironic that the majestic passage of the Suffering Servant in Yishayahu 53 is really a passage about Israel's suffering servitude to G-d to be the Qorbanot for all Mankind, and not Oto Ish.  It is ironic because so many Jews (willingly and wittingly or not) died in this purpose by the hand of many of those Europeans who thought Oto Ish was that servant.... Ironic, isn't it?

And so we see the necessity of of one mitzvah flowing into another at the End of Days.  Without Machtzit HaShekel there would be no Zecher and Mechiyat Amaleq.  And as we may soon see, without Remembrance and Blotting Out of Amaleq, there would be no Parah Adumah which comes the following week.  This is the progression of the Final Redemption.
