The Suffering and the Redemption of Mashiach ben Ephraim

 Well, it finally happened.  Yehonatan Pollard is coming home.  His plans for Aliyah obviously include making sure that his wife Esther receives the best medical and oncological care in the world for his wife Esther's Jener Machalah= (That Horrible Disease that cannot be mentioned because it is associated with the Mazal of the Sin of the Golden Calf during the month Tamuz, the Hebrew word for Crab).  So I am sure that his and her imminent Aliyah is being scheduled around her life saving therapies.  In anticipation of his Aliyah, I have kept a lot of my deeper thoughts and musings about his role in the Redemption of Klal Yisrael to myself.  I had no desire to awaken the Satan's accusations that may have been used to extend his intolerable parole conditions for another five or ten years.  But apparently those accusations have dissolved in what MIGHT be Trump's last wonderful Presidential act on behalf of Klal Yisrael.  On that subject, I am not going to guess which outcome Trump's legal maneuvers are going to achieve.  For this last great deed of kindness, he deserves to win something, maybe the Presidency of the United RedStates of America as all the deeply blue states on both coasts secede from the United States upon his pulling off a miraculous re-election.  I am not here to guess which outcome will be achieved in the next two weeks in time for the "drop dead" date (8th December 2020) to certify the Electors to the Electoral College from the various states, especially in the six swing states where Trump and his legal team are trying to prove massive fraud.  And now I have learned, that if there is a Supreme Court ruling in Trump's favor on massive Election fraud in at least three states (including in Pennsylvania and in either Michigan or Georgia) to overthrow the election in those three or more states, then Baruch HaShem, Trump may pull off his Victory in the United RedStates of America.  The US Supreme Court will need to rule on this before the Electoral College actually gathers in the various State capitals on the 14th of December to vote for President.  Biden would then have less than 270 Electoral College votes, and the election would then be decided amongst the various state delegations of members of the US House of Representatives with each state having one vote according to the US Constitution.  Since the Republicans have a slight majority (26 out of 50) in both the incoming and the outgoing State Congressional Delegations of House members amongst the 50 State delegations, Trump would then be re-elected.  

Moving on from this contentious subject, a far greater Geulah event than whether Trump is inaugurated on January 20th, 2021 has just occurred.  The 6th and final Mashiach ben Yosef has been released from prison, the Mashiach ben Yosef who is released from decades long degradation in one of Edom's prison systems, spending years of his thirty year sentence in jail in Solitary confinement which was a major condition of his suffering predicted in the Yalkut Shimoni, Yishayahu 60, Remez 499 before his release.  I will give a full translation of the entire segment dealing with the release of Mashiach ben Ephraim in this post.  But first a little background and in my mind, 100% proof must be presented that he is the last Mashiach ben Ephraim who is apparently released in the 6th year, the Yesod year, of the Dystopian and Final Shmittah cycle before the Coming of Mashiach ben David in year 8, b'itah (earlier with HaShem's Rachamim).  I will present all the evidence that has been presented slowly on this blog over the years, but because the presentation is so voluminous, I will present it with bulletpoints and in outline form. 

First let us define the Role of Mashiach ben Yosef in the world.  He has four potential roles in the Final Redemption.  In the case of the previous five MBYs, they had the ko'ach to achieve at least one of these four roles.

1. Ingathering of the Exiles.  Whenever the Vav appears in Yaakov's name, which happens only five times in all of Tana"kh, we are being introduced to an event that takes place during the Mashiach ben Yosef period of history which lasts from the Greening of Eretz Yisrael until the Coming of Mashiach Ben David.  The Vav in Ya'akov appears once in the entire Torah in Lev. 26:42 and four times in Sefer Yirmiyahu.  The Greening of Eretz Yisrael started with the Agricultural Aliyahs of the late 19th Century which started with the the founding of Rosh Pinah and Zikhron Ya'akov in 1882.  But we were informed in Tana"kh, mamash in the Torah itself, that it would begin with the Remembrance of Ya'akov (Zikhron Yaakov).   וְזָכַרְתִּי, אֶת-בְּרִיתִי יַעֲקוֹב; וְאַף אֶת-בְּרִיתִי יִצְחָק וְאַף אֶת-בְּרִיתִי אַבְרָהָם, אֶזְכֹּר--וְהָאָרֶץ אֶזְכֹּר. 42 then will I Remember My covenant with Ya'akov, and also My covenant with Isaac, and also My covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.  

Now Yoseph became Viceroy of Mitzraim exactly 9 to 9 1/2 years before Ya'akov and his 70 children, grandchildren, and some great-grandchildren descended into Mitzraim after the 7 years of plenty and two to two 1/2 years of famine.  After they descended while Yocheved was being born, they were in Mitzraim for 130 years until she gave birth to Moshe Rabbeinu, one of the mysterious hidden miracles of the Torah.  Yes, Yocheved gave birth to Miriam when she was 123 years old, to Aharon, when she was 127 years old, and to Moshe Rabbeinu when she was 130 years old.  The Written Torah makes a huge deal that Sarah Imeinu miraculously gave birth to Yitzchak when she was 90 years old.  In order to bear one child, she needed to be rejuvenated with the return of her fertility cycle and with her ability to produce milk for her young child.  The Torah makes a point to stress this miraculous reclaiming of her youth (Gen 18:11) in order for her to bear just one child when she was not yet 90 years old.  Yet, Yocheved giving birth to three children when she was 123 years and older was not even worth one mention of the miraculous nature of her remaining forever young?  Could it be a hint for the Final Redemption, that the return of the Land of Israel to its former fertile bounty, would take place in such a natural way that even amongst our own people, the Land's return to its former fertility would not be considered miraculous??  Yes, every decade, an ancient country is redeemed from the encroaching lifeless deserts with the return of its ancient people who plant trees and crops as if their 1800 year absence for the country never happened?  It happens all the time that after that ancient people left, the Land they vacated for 1800 years does not produce crops from its soil, but suddenly when the ancient people's return, the Land prospers from its agricultural bounty..... Of course,  this likely is the only time in world history where this even has occurred, but just like Yocheved remained fertile until she was at least 130 years old, the Land of Israel produced its bounty as if Klal Yisrael never left, starting with the founding of Rosh Pinah and Zikhron Ya'akov.  And just as the forming of Israel as a nation began with Yoseph becoming Viceroy of Mitzraim at age 30, to prepare the way for Israel's 70 original descendants to sojourn in Mitzraim, the Mashiach ben Yoseph period of history began with the founding of those two Agricultural settlements in 1882.  And just as Moshe Rabbeinu was born 139 or 140 years later, after Yoseph became Viceroy, to begin the openly miraculous part of the Redemption from Mitzraim, so too would the more natural aspect of the Mashiach ben Yoseph Era of our Redemption come to an end 139 to 140 years after 1882 in 2021 or 2022, ending the natural Era of the Ingathering of the Exiles and the role of Mashiach ben Yoseph to do so.  

As I will explain later, there really have been five Mashiach ben Yosephs during this 139 year stretch of history.  The first Four have died violent deaths through assassination or War which is prophesied for the first five MBYs while the fifth MBY, Bibi Netanyahu's final fate hangs in the balance.  It hangs in the balance since the fifth MBY is the prophesied MBY from Zecharia 12, and throughout the Centuries great tzaddiqim and sages have done mystical tikkunim so that the fifth MBY need not be assassinated as is described in Zech 12:10.  And as will be discussed, Eliyahu HaNavi complained to G-d while trying to return the Torah to Heaven at Choreiv, and when he did so, he lost the privilege to herald the first five MBYs, and that in the end he would only herald Mashiach ben David so that those first five MBYs would come in a fully hidden way (just as Yocheved giving birth to three holy children when she was over 120 years old was a hidden miracle of the Torah.)  And then there is the sixth and final MBY who rotted in an American jail for 30 years and lived through oppressive parole conditions for the last five years.  There had to be six MBYs because the Malkhut of MBY emanates from the purity of Yesod, the 6th Sefirah, which is manifest by the Vav in HaShem's Holiest Name.  And Eliyahu would not herald any of them (except maybe the 6th one since the 6th one would come immediately before the advent of Mashiach ben David near the end of the 140 years spoken about above.)

2. Second major Role: To Bring Prosperity to Jews throughout our long exile, but in these last 140 years to bring prosperity to the Ingathered exiles in Eretz Yisrael.  This is the primary area in which Binyamin Netanyahu has been most successful.  Since January of 2009 when Netanyahu became PM until the Corona Crash in March of 2020, Israel's GDP had grown from 202.5 billion dollars of Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) in 2008 until 387.7 billion nominal dollars for all of 2019.  I do not know the PPP equivalent of 387.7 billion nominal dollars.  PPP is the equivalent in shekels converted to dollars that can purchase the same market basket of goods and services in previous years.  However the growth from 202.5 billion dollars to 387.7 billion dollars is to be understood, that is a phenomenal level of growth in just eleven years.  If you include the time when Bibi was Treasury (Finance) Minister under Sharon between 2003 and 2005 one sees an economic growth per capita of $20,679 of PPP until he left the position in 2005 when per capita income was $23,441 of PPP,   

I am not including the growth or economic collapse in 2020 because the CoronaVirus plague was meant to destroy the world's economy in Olam HaZeh, and will only end when double blind studies are done on Hydroxychloroquine with Zinc and/or Ivermectin to prove their effectiveness in stopping the progression of the disease to the point where longterm damage is done to the body in 15% of Covid cases.  The 15% of cases where people do not seem to ever recover are called longhaulers.  But with HCQ or Ivermectin, the percentage of longhauler cases plummets to less than 1%.  With these cheap generic anti-virals, the necessity to close down Economies to stop the virus would end because very few people would suffer  from the longterm damage that takes place in 15% of all Covid cases without the cheap, generic anti-virals.  Yet, because there is no windfall profit to be made on anti-virals that cost less than $20 for a week's treatment regimen, these double blind studies have never been done!!  So the efficacy of these two cheap anti-virals mysteriously remains a Mystery!!    Well to be honest it is not such a mystery because the essence of the Western World's service to G-d is for the purpose of making money.  So as long as we are "trapped" in that worldview, the macro-economic worldview will be to disparage ideas that do not result in massive profits for those providing necessary goods and services to the point of destroying the entire General economy so that those who manufacture medicine can show a healthy bottom line to their stockholders.  In such a world, serving G-d altruistically is a laughable concept.  And as long as Edom is in control, it will be more important for Gilead to make $500 a pill profit from Remdesivir, their new designer anti-Covid drug than for people to have access to low cost and low profit generics which would allow the world Economy to open up.  Think really hard about how horribly EVIL this is!  On this note let us introduce concept number 3, that is the 3rd major role of Mashiach ben Yoseph in general and with the final and 6th Mashiach ben Ephraim in particular.  

3. Prosperity for the Final Mashiach ben Yoseph who will truly be from Shevet Ephraim on his mother's side will be completely contingent on NOT serving G-d to Make Money.  The Prosperity for the 6th Mashiach ben Yoseph will ONLY come if the mentality in Eretz Yisrael is to serve G-d lishmah (for its own sake).  That is, we will leave the level of Hod that is in Hod (Glory that is in Glory), the 33rd level of purity for the level of Yesod that is in Yesod, the 41st level of purity.  The level of Hod she beHod as pointed out multiple times on this blog is the level that Edom rises to because at that level he is doing what is right in G-d's eyes only to prosper in Olam HaZeh.  We see this for instance with the Mon which fell the first time on the 31st day of the Omer which was a Motzei Shabbat night.  As we read in Shemot 16:

א  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵאֵילִם, וַיָּבֹאוּ כָּל-עֲדַת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶל-מִדְבַּר-סִין, אֲשֶׁר בֵּין-אֵילִם וּבֵין סִינָי--בַּחֲמִשָּׁה עָשָׂר יוֹם לַחֹדֶשׁ הַשֵּׁנִי, לְצֵאתָם מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם. 1 And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt. (That is the 30th day of the Omer)

ב  וילינו (וַיִּלּוֹנוּ) כָּל-עֲדַת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, עַל-מֹשֶׁה וְעַל-אַהֲרֹן--בַּמִּדְבָּר. 2 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron in the wilderness;

ג  וַיֹּאמְרוּ אֲלֵהֶם בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, מִי-יִתֵּן מוּתֵנוּ בְיַד-יְהוָה בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם, בְּשִׁבְתֵּנוּ עַל-סִיר הַבָּשָׂר, בְּאָכְלֵנוּ לֶחֶם לָשֹׂבַע:  כִּי-הוֹצֵאתֶם אֹתָנוּ אֶל-הַמִּדְבָּר הַזֶּה, לְהָמִית אֶת-כָּל-הַקָּהָל הַזֶּה בָּרָעָב.  {ס} 3 and the children of Israel said unto them: 'Would that we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh-pots, when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.' {S}

ד  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, הִנְנִי מַמְטִיר לָכֶם לֶחֶם מִן-הַשָּׁמָיִם; וְיָצָא הָעָם וְלָקְטוּ דְּבַר-יוֹם בְּיוֹמוֹ, לְמַעַן אֲנַסֶּנּוּ הֲיֵלֵךְ בְּתוֹרָתִי אִם-לֹא. 4 Then said the LORD unto Moses: 'Behold, I will cause to rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in My law, or not.

So since the 30th day of the Omer in the year of the Exodus was on Shabbat when HaShem spoke to Moshe about the Mon, the Mon first fell on the 31st day of the Omer, and Klal Yisrael had a "Chazakah" on the Mon on Lag B'Omer when it fell for the third time.  From this we see that in Esav's mind, we serve G-d until the 33rd day of the Omer and wrestle (or take away) the right to bestow Eternal prosperity from G-d to give this power to Man at this level so that G-d Himself cannot dispute Edom's right to Prosperity for the rest of time.  This happens at Hod that is in Hod.  So only the one who is pure in Yesod that is in Yesod, Mashiach ben Ephraim, can wrestle the Malkhut away from Edom and place it back in the hands of the descendants of Ya'akov, Ya'akov spelled with a Vav, which represents Mashiach ben Yoseph in Ya'akov's name.  So one of the simanim that we should see at the moment that this Mashiach ben Ephraim goes free from Esav's 35 years clutches is the Collapse of the Dollar as the World's Reserve Currency.  Lo and behold Yehonatan Pollard went free last Erev Shabbat Toldot, just over a week ago, and the Collapse of the Dollar is suddenly becoming more and more evident.  Yes, there will be up days as the Bank of Israel and other Central banks purchase billions of dollars to try to prevent its collapse, but from here on out the longterm result will be the complete deterioration of the Dollar as the world's reserve currency.  Today it fell below 3.31 shekels per dollar for the second time since the Recalibrated New Israeli Sheqel was introduced on the 13th of October 1994.   A short history:  When it was first introduced and recalibrated, the Sheqel was artificially set at the beginning to be exchanged at approximately 3.0 shekels to the dollar.  Yet, Originally back on 1st January 1986, the New Sheqel was introduced after rampant inflation of the Old Sheqel at a rate of 1000 Old Sheqels for each New Sheqel.  But the New Sheqel itself quickly and steadily inflated over the next 8 years from about 1 sheqel to the dollar to about 3 sheqels to the dollar.  Then it was recalibrated in 1994 at the 3.0 sheqels to the dollar mentioned above with the elimination of the 1, 5, and 10 sheqel banknotes.  Remember those Old 1000 Sheqel notes which were exchanged in 1986 for the NIS 1 sheqel notes with the Rambam's picture on the face of the note?  Well those notes were eliminated near the end of 1994 as the currency was once again calibrated and set at NIS 3.0 to the dollar.  It quickly rose from its initial artificially set value to over 3.30 shekels to the dollar in January of 1997, slightly more than two years later.  The dollar continued to explode upwards to 4.917 on or around 1st of May 2002.  Since then and right before that date, it has vacillated up and down depending on the various economic and global crises that took place from time to time such as 9/11/2001 and the Al Aksa Intifada.  Then came the Financial Crisis/Collapse of 2008 when at the end of that Shmittah year the Dow fell exactly 777.7  points on the 29th of Elul 5768.  Immediately before that event the exchange rate fell briefly below 3.30 to 3.2166 on 1st May 2008.  It quickly bounced back above 3.35, never showing any clue that that particular dip would be long-lasting.  This time, well this time things seem completely different.  Time will tell if this trend continues, but it does not look good for those of us whose income is in dollars.  As the Pure power of Yesod rises in this 6th year of this Sabbatical cycle, the currency of those who serve G-d primarily for the purpose of this worldly prosperity, that is "to attain the American dream" will falter.  So does Pollard come here to rule?  Or does his Aliyah simply represent a spiritual transfer of Malkhut to someone who understands the spiritual mechanics of this transfer of Malkhut.  Such a person will tell the Big Pharmaceutical companies to go to Azezel and will permit free and unfettered access to the cheap anti-virals as mentioned above.  And then there will be no longer any need for this perpetual lockdown that the Powers that be think are for our good but which are really taking place so that Big Pharma can reap windfall profits.   From now on Goodness and decency will not be rewarded based on how much money that decency helps us prosper but what is the value of that decent act in Shamayim even if it is to the detriment of temporal prosperity in this world.  This will be the key to unlocking the Prosperity of the Malkhut of the Final Mashiach ben Ephraim.

4. The Matrilineal Power to Destroy Amaleq in the World.  This power to destroy Amaleq that exists in the Torah and in Tana"kh in general comes from one of two people, Rachel Imeinu and Osnat bat Potiphara (really Osnat bat Dinah)  This koach is matrilineal because Amaleq is the foremost "masculine" force for Evil in the world.  It is why when referring to Amaleq, we are commanded to Remember him (Zakhor in Hebrew).  As it says in Shemot 17:    וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, כְּתֹב זֹאת זִכָּרוֹן בַּסֵּפֶר, וְשִׂים, בְּאָזְנֵי יְהוֹשֻׁעַ:  כִּי-מָחֹה אֶמְחֶה אֶת-זֵכֶר עֲמָלֵק, מִתַּחַת הַשָּׁמָיִם. 14 And the LORD said unto Moses: 'Write this for a memorial in the book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.'

and in Devarim 25   וְהָיָה בְּהָנִיחַ יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ לְךָ מִכָּל-אֹיְבֶיךָ מִסָּבִיב, בָּאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר יְהוָה-אֱלֹהֶיךָ נֹתֵן לְךָ נַחֲלָה לְרִשְׁתָּהּ--תִּמְחֶה אֶת-זֵכֶר עֲמָלֵק, מִתַּחַת הַשָּׁמָיִם; לֹא, תִּשְׁכָּח.  {פ} 19 Therefore it shall be, when the LORD thy God hath given thee rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it, that thou shalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; thou shalt not forget. 

We see that this is important because while Mashiach ben David is a patrilinear descendant of David who is a patrilinear descendant of Yehudah, the line for Malkhut Yosef or Binyamin is much more complex, for both Yosef and Binyamin have this ko'ach to destroy Amaleq in the World.  Also since Ephraim and Menashe are Yoseph's children, the ko'ach to destroy Amaleq in the world must come from their mother Osnat, not from Yoseph himself.  From here we can see, that the power to subdue the "feminine" side of evil in the world comes from the patrilinear line of Mashiach ben David, but the power to wipe out the masculine side of evil in the world comes from the matrilineal line of Mashiach ben Yoseph or Binyamin, but really from Rachel Imeinu.  This is why when listing the yichus of the MBY figure in Zecharia 12, we are informed that on his father's side he is from the House of Natan but is also a patrilinear Levite.  Yet, on his mother's side he is from the FAMILY of Shimi.  When patrilinear descent is being stressed, the text says that he is from the House of Natan or the House of the Levi'im.  In this case of Mishpachat Shimi the prophet is referring to matrilinear descent from a historical Shimi.  I believe here we're are referring to Shimi ben Geira from Binyamin, for in all these cases if the yichus goes through a man in the lineage, the next in line has to be through a woman.  It can be passed down from woman to woman, but if it then goes through a man in a particular generation, in the next generation it must go through a woman. 

So these things explain three anomalies in the Torah/ Tana"kh.  1.   There is a tradition that the last Mashiach ben Ephraim will be a direct descendant of Yehoshua bin Nun.  But Yehoshua was not blessed with any sons.  He only gave birth to daughters.  So the Malkhut of Yehoshua bin Nun must be through his daughters!  2. When the Torah chooses to discuss the Yerushah (passed on inheritance) of Men to Women when the men have no sons, it without coincidence chooses the Tribe of Menashe, one of the three tribes of potential matrilineal descent!  The daughters of Tzelofchad are not so coincidently from Shevet Menashe!  3.  And most famously of all, for those who hold that Achashveirosh was the father of Dariyavush who completed the 2nd Temple, the yichus to have merit to complete such a holy task could not come from his evil, drunken father who originally sided with Haman to wipe out all the Jews.  It must have come from his mother, Esther HaMalkah, from the Tribe of Binyamin!  

So in all this, one of the matrilineal Yichusim remains completely unexplained.  We can see that Rachel somehow represented feminine Malkhut.  She was the only one amongst all the Imahot, who did not have a Hey representing Binah in her name.  Here is the list: שרה רבקה לאה זלפה בלהה.  All of them have the Hey of Binah in their names, and with Sarah Imeinu, it was specifically added to her name when her name was changed from Sarai.  As a matter of fact Bilhah has two Heys to make up for the fact that she was the maidservant of Rachel who had no Heys in her name!  Poor Leah.  6 of the Shevatim came from her womb, but the Mother of Klal Yisrael is Rachel Imeinu!  Yet, how about Osnat?  Well if we trace back her yichus through her "X chromosome", we see that her mother was Dinah who was raped by Shekhem.  And Dinah's father was Ya'akov Avinu whose mother was Rivkah Imeinu whose father was the evil Bethuel whose mother was Milkah wife of Nachor who was Avraham's brother.  So a question immediately comes to mind.  We are told more than once in the Torah that Nachor's wife was Milkah, but we are NOT informed who was the wife of Avraham's other brother Haran who was the father of Lot and Yiskah (who likely may have been Sarah).  We cannot say that the importance of Milkah's children and grandchildren was greater than the children of Haran's unmentioned wife.  So pray tell.  Why do we know Milkah's name and not the name of the wife of Haran?  The answer seems to be that when it comes to the wives of gentiles and their descendants, the Torah rarely mentions the names of gentile women while the names of the Jewish women are frequently mentioned in the Torah/ Tana"kh including the names of the mothers of the Kings of Yehudah and Israel.  In Bereishit we are told that Na'amah was the sister of Tuval Ka'in (Vulcan, the Avodah Zarah of Blacksmiths in the Roman pantheon).  The Roman pantheon of Avodah Zarah was frequently named after the Anshei Shem (Men and Women of Renown) in the pre-Flood world.  But Na'amah?  Why do we need to know about his sister?  Because Na'amah was extremely important in the continuance of the human race!  Na'amah became Noach's wife.  Since she was so important in the story of Mankind, she received an honorable mention in the Torah!  And so it is with Milkah, the gentile wife of the gentile Nachor.  Milkah is Malkah since both are spelled מלכה.    In short we are told Milkah's name because it is from her that we have the feminine side of Malkhut that will ultimately destroy Amaleq in the world.    So lo and behold who is the mother of the final Mashiach ben Yoseph, who truly is Mashiach ben Ephraim released from prison,  the Ephraim who received his Malkhut from Milkah through his mother Osnat?  Her name is also Malkah.   Yehonatan Pollard is Yehonatan ben Malkah.

And there is one more point before I present the translation of the portion of the Yalkut Shimoni, Remez 499 which is apropos to the tortured life of Yehonatan Pollard.  I am copying and pasting this from a thought out email which I wrote to a few close readers to this blog.  I always had my doubts about Yehonatan Pollard even after meeting the Rishon LeTzion, Rav Mordechai Eliyahu zt"l, who often came to S. Louis on the way to Marion, Illinois's Maximum Security prison in Southern Illinois.  We knew at the time that he had added that extra Hey to Yonatan's name in order for him to have the ko'ach to destroy Amaleq in the world. (From the Yud Hey Vav in his name).  We know from Sefer Shemot that as long as Amaleq remains in the world, the Yud Hey in HaShem's Name remains disconnected from the Vav and the final Hey in HaShem's Name.  So the one who can destroy Amaleq in the world needs the Yud and the Hey in his name attached to the Vav.   So when Pollard received that Hey, he had the Yud, Hey, Vav consecutively in his first name.  

I now live here in Israel.  My house overlooks Wadi Yonatan or Yehonatan when the son of Shaul crossed over from where his father camped out in Migron when Yehonatan and his armor bearer climbed a sheer faced cliff to defeat the Philistine army at Michmash (Shmuel Aleph 14, First Samuel 14).  Before that incident he was simply known as Yonatan.  During that miraculous battle, the text of Shmuel changes his name to Yehonatan.  If he had survived, he, not his father would have destroyed Amaleq in the world.

I was finally convinced that Pollard was that man when John Kerry asked for 400 murderers from Israeli jails in 2014 at the end of 9 months of negotiations with the Invented people.  3x 26 murderers had already been released. Bibi told Kerry that he will release the last 26 if America released Pollard in 2014 just before Pesach.  Kerry immediately said that Israel had to release the 26 already promised plus exactly 400 more men.  The only one of Yaakov's sons who was keneged Esav's Ayin Ra and his 400 men was Yoseph.  I knew right then and there that Pollard was that man.  When he comes here, I am expecting miracles whose content we cannot even begin to know.

Translation of the appropriate paragraph in the Yalkut Shimoni, Remez 499, dealing with the suffering of the final Mashiach ben Ephraim in prison:  Hat Tip for the help from Rabbi Avi Grossman who helped me with difficult allegorical references, 2000 year old idioms, and translations of archaic actions that took place in everyday life millennia ago (such as the Hebrew words which describe how to sweep and smooth out a dirt floor which is referred to in the Medrash in a way that we do not sweep floors today):

Our Rabbis have stressed in the future that the Patriarchs of all the peoples of the World will "stand up" in the month of Nissan and say to him, "Ephraim, our Righteous Mashiach, although we are your Avot, you are better than we are, that you have suffered for the sins of our Children (our descendants), and these difficult and horrible retributions have come upon you, what did not come upon former and later generations (or what former and later generations did not experience).  And you were an object of laughter and derision (object of mockery and ridicule), amongst the Nations on behalf of Klal Yisrael.  And you sat in Darkness and Obscurity (Solitary confinement).  And your eyes did not see the light of day.  And your skin shriveled on your flesh.  And your body dried up like wood.  And your eyes went dark from fasting (lack of food).  And Your strength dried up like earthenware.  And all these things occurred because of the Sins of our children.  

Do you want our children to enjoy from this Good that HaQadosh Barukh Hu (HQB"Hu) will now bestow upon them?  Perhaps because of the exceptional sorrow that you have suffered on their behalf and because they imprisoned you in (Max. Security) prisons, Perhaps you are not pleased with them?  You have no thoughts of consolation for them?  He will say to them, Avot of the whole world, All that I did, I did only for your sake and the sake of your progeny that will enjoy from the Good that HQB"Hu will bestow upon Yisrael.  The Avot of the World will say to him, Ephraim our Righteous Mashiach, Rest assured that you have pleased your Maker and our opinion of you.  

Rav Shimon ben Pazi said, "The very same hour HQB"Hu will elevate Mashiach up to the highest Heavens and spread upon him from the Brilliance of His Kavod in front of the Nations of the World and in front of the evil Persians (Iranians).  They say to him, Ephraim, our righteous Mashiach, Be a Judge on these, and Do to them what your soul desires.  Were it not for My Mercy remaining exceedingly mighty upon you, you would have already been lost to the World in an instant as it says:   הֲבֵן יַקִּיר לִי אֶפְרַיִם, אִם יֶלֶד שַׁעֲשֻׁעִים--כִּי-מִדֵּי דַבְּרִי בּוֹ, זָכֹר אֶזְכְּרֶנּוּ עוֹד; עַל-כֵּן, הָמוּ מֵעַי לוֹ--רַחֵם אֲרַחֲמֶנּוּ, נְאֻם-יְהוָה  Is Ephraim My favorite son or a delightful child that whenever I speak of him, I surely still remember him.   Therefore, My inner Self yearns for him.  I will surely have Mercy on him, sayeth the L-rd  (Yirmiyahu 31:19).  Why does it say Rachem Arachamenu twice?  It says Rachem for the very hour that that (Mashiach ben Ephraim) was imprisoned, and everyday after each day, they would grind their teeth at him, show their derision by rolling their eyes, wag their heads, and open wide their lips as it says: .ח  כָּל-רֹאַי, יַלְעִגוּ לִי;    יַפְטִירוּ בְשָׂפָה, יָנִיעוּ רֹאשׁ. 8 All they that see me laugh me to scorn (mock me); they shoot out the lip, they shake the head (Psalms 22:8).  along with the entire Psalm 22.  It says the second Arachamenu because The Hour that he leaves prison, that not one Malkhut and not two Malkhuyot will come against him, BUT 140 KINGDOMS WILL SURROUND HIM.  And HQB"Hu will say to him, Ephraim My Righteous Mashiach, Do not fear them, because all of them, with the Breath of your lips, will die as it says, (Yishaiyahu 11:4) With the breath of his lips, he will slay the Wicked.  וּבְרוּחַ שְׂפָתָיו יָמִית רָשָׁע.  Immediately, HQB"Hu will make for Mashiach 7 Canopies of precious gemstones, pearls, and (emeralds or carbuncles).  Every Canopy (Chupah) on top of the preceding canopy is drawn or pulled from Four Rivers of Pure wine and milk and honey and Persimmons [sic] (Hebrew: Afarsimonim which likely is a different fruit than the modern persimmons), and HQB"Hu will embrace him in the presence of the Righteous, will bring him under the Canopies, and all of the Righteous will see him.  And HQB"Hu will say to them, Righteous of the World, Ephraim My Righteous Mashiach still did not bear half of his suffering.  I still have one measure that I am giving him that no eye has ever seen.  In that Hour HQB"Hu will call to the Northern wind and the Southern wind and sill say to them to Sweep the floor and Mat it down with water in front of Ephraim My Righteous Mashiach (and place on the floor) all kinds of spices from Gan Eden as it says in (Song of Songs 4:16)  Awake from the North and Come from the South! Like the Winds Let My Exiles Return to My Garden.  Let their fragrant Goodness flow into Yerushalayim.  Let my Beloved come to His Garden and enjoy His precious fruit.  This verse is obviously about the Ingathering of the exiles of Jews from the North (Ashkenazic Jews) and Jews from the South (Sephardic Jews), a process which is actually coming to its fulfillment 140 years after it started.  Do not think for a minute, that it was your job to wait it out in America, unless you were not given the opportunity to come here?  The winds have been blowing for 140 years.  

In reality, this post is not done.  Let us call it Part One.  The Coming of Mashiach ben Ephraim to Eretz Yisrael is not a small matter.  It is the biggest matter of this 6th year of the Dystopian Shmittah cycle in which we find ourselves, where Evil has outweighed Good in the World dramatically for the last five years already.  Believe it or not, whether Trump is re-elected or not or whether he overturns the fraudulent votes in the six contested battleground states is a smaller matter in Shamayim than the release into freedom of the 6th Mashiach ben Ephraim.  Trump's Presidency has been good for passing the scepter of rule in the world from Edom to Yisrael, but the Scepter is being passed.  So the Geulah is not contingent on Trump's re-election.

The Corona Virus: As the Sun Comes Up, the Corona Shines First

This is an intermediate post.  Yes, I am writing a lengthier post, but writing it in full is taking longer because of unexpected responsibilities.  In the interim, I did a bit of research.  One of the proofs that this is the last pre-Messianic Shmittah cycle is if the Plagues more and more come on Mankind for trying to divide Yerushalayim (Zecharia haNavi) and trying to divide Eretz Yisrael in general (Yoel haNavi).  Here are two short posts from my Facebook page that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is what is happening.

The nine nations that unilaterally condemned and threatened Israel for building in Givat HaMatos and the E1 corridor to Maaleh Adumim at the end of February:
France, Italy, Great Britain, The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Spain, Ireland, and Belgium as the Headquarters for the EU.

Here is the EU condemnation. Remember the EU is headquartered in Brussels, Belgium while the EU Parliament is headquartered in Strasbourg, France.

The top eight countries IN THE ENTIRE WORLD which have the worst death toll PER CAPITA from CoVid 19 are: France, Italy, Great Britain, The Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, Ireland, and Belgium! Germany has a very high per capita case rate, but for whatever reason, its death rate is far lower. Maybe we can discuss that anomaly later.

Here is the exact total in deaths per million citizens of these top eight countries to erase all doubts from this table:

And here are the top 8 countries IN THE WORLD with the highest PER CAPITA death tolls from CoVid 19, starting from late February and early March when it exploded in Europe:

1. Belgium 756 per million
2. Spain 576 per million
3. Italy 511 per million
4. U.Kingdom 482 per million
5. France 414 per million
6. Sweden 328 per million
7. Netherlands 322 per million
8. Ireland 301 per million

The USA comes in 9th or 10th at 248 per million, but 60% of the deaths in the United States are in just 4 East Coast Blue States that voted for Hillary and therefore voted for the Division of Yerushalayim (New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Connecticut). The per capita death toll in the Red States that gave Donald Trump the Presidency is minuscule. Look at those state by state numbers for yourself. The biggest issue in states like Texas and Georgia is how fast can they possibly reopen their severely damaged economies, not about how 1700 people died in New York nursing homes while Andrew Cuomo himself wrote the rules condemning those elderly to death. I tried to warn Orthodox Jews in New York, that there is a problem with remaining there to make parnassah when you live behind enemy lines. At least for your own safety, live in G-d friendlier states like Texas or Tennessee (where there are existing Torah communities). For G-d's sake leave those East Coast cesspools. Your communities are NOT protected during this final period of GogUMagog if you live in a majority Reshayim State, that is where the majority of voters in your state are outright Reshayim who vote to divide Eretz Yisrael. From this present state of affairs from this plague of Dever that should be plainly obvious. And make Aliyah as communities bringing the Rich, Middle class, and the Poor together. Do not leave poor people behind.

By the way, here is the latest abomination from the EU. Notice the list of Western European countries once again showing their hatred for Israel. So there will be more plagues against the same usual suspects. Their outright hatred of G-d's overarching plan for Israel and for humanity as a whole is palpable.

The End of QeReN Qayemet in Olam HaZeh

Four years ago during Shevat I wrote the following post:  Is this the Dawning of the Age of the Water Bucket? .  I post it again because with 95% certitude I believe that the conditions that I wrote in this four year old post have come to pass for Mashiach to imminently come as early as this Spring.  I just made two minor changes to the post.  1.  I changed the words Water Bucket to Water-vapor Bucket because the D'li (bucket) or Aquarius, the Tzedeq (Zodiac) sign for the month of Shevat, is an air sign.  In reality the Mazal represents the potential for cloud formation which brings rain.  Cloud formation involves evaporation of ocean water which at the proper vapor pressure, atmospheric pressure, and temperatures in the upper atmosphere condense in clouds in the upper atmosphere bringing rain onto where it is supposed to rain.  Since Vapor is a gas, the Water-vapor bucket is more accurately described as an Air sign.
2. Secondly I changed the spelling of the words Keren Kayemet to Qeren Qayemet because in reality the letter Qoof in Hebrew (ק) is more properly transliterated as a Q not a K.

Other than those two minor changes, I left the article as is.  The point here is that article started as a thought experiment.  What would be a major event that would need to happen in order for Mashiach to come in any particular year?  What event would need to proceed the coming of Mashiach that would prevent society for relapsing into a place where the Wicked could rise politically and financially to take over countries and run large segments of planet Earth and reverse tikkunim and perfecting of the world carried out by our righteous Mashiach.  In this post I came to the conclusion that in order for the Wicked to fall from their high perch and remain fallen, the major advantage that they had to rule in Olam HaZeh would have to be removed from the world.  Only then could Mashiach not only come, but whatever he would establish could NEVER AGAIN be reversed.  The main advantage in Olam HaZeh that Reshayim (people who have greater weight to their sins than their merits) have over Tzaddiqim (people with more weight in their merits over their sins) and Beinonim (people with equal weight in their merits and sins) is that not only do they, the Reshayim, receive their reward for how they affect the world for whatever good they might do (their peirot), but they also receive their principal reward (their Qeren Qayemet) in this world and NOT in the world to come (for they have no World to Come!).  So in the Billionaire club of billionaires, for instance, there are far more Reshayim than Tzaddiqim and Beinomim.  Do not get me wrong, there are a number of wonderful tzaddiqim and beinonim who are billionaires, but a large majority of people who are billionaires are those who get their entire reward in this world both from their principal (Qeren Qayemet) and their fruit (the effect of the world of their relatively few good deeds).  In order for Mashiach to come, this would need to cease.  That means that there would need to be an event that would end for all time for the rest of history, the Receiving of Qeren Qayemet in this world and not in the World to Come!

So in the above linked post, I made a number of points.  Please read that post.

1. That in the year that Mashiach comes sometime hopefully in the Spring, our time of Rachamim, The Qeren Qayemet that the wicked receive would suddenly cease being a source of their blessings in THIS WORLD.  While it is decreed in Tishrei what our parnassah is for the year, it is divided up for Reshayim.  They, the Reshayim, begin to receive from their Qeren Qayemet starting on the 7th of MarCheshvan, and like a tree in the field (its trunk and branches being the Qeren), they continue to receive this brachah from rain all year round.  In the month of Shevat some of that water is diverted to blessing the fruit and leaves of the tree that will bud in the Spring.  So both Reshayim and Tzaddiqim/Beinonim begin to receive the blessing for their fruit.  Since non-Reshayim ONLY receive blessing for their fruit in this world, the decree in Tishrei needs to be reaffirmed in Shevat so that the actual practical blessing for parnassah for non-Reshayim begins in the month of Shevat while for the Wicked it began in MarCheshvan since their brachah INCLUDES their reward for their Qeren Qayemet.  So in the year that Mashiach comes, there would be an event which would END FOR ALL TIME their Qeren Qayemet specifically in the MONTH OF SHEVAT.  In addition, there would be initially that year and explosion of receiving their fruit in the month of MarCheshvan too so that when Shevat came around, the House of Cards from which they receive their blessing would at least begin to cease altogether.  Yet, in that year everyone else for the rest of history would.ONLY receive their blessings for their fruit starting in the Month of Shevat.

2. Whether this point was made in that post, in Olam HaZeh, the time of the month of Shevat when the Water is diverted in part to the fruit is on Tu B'Shevat, the full moon during the month of Shevat.  This opinion in Mishnayot Pereq 1. of Rosh HaShanah that it begins on the 15th of the month is Hillel's opinion.  The opposing opinion is Shamai's opinion who holds that the diverting of rainwater to the fruit is on Rosh Chodesh Shevat.  According to our sages, most arguments between Hillel and Shamai are decided in favor of Hillel, but IN THE YEAR THAT MASHIACH COMES, G-d will begin to rule the world with a greater amount of the Midat HaDin.  So all the opinions where we hold by Hillel in Olam HaZeh, we will hold by Shamai in Yemot HaMashiach.  So this event of ending Qeren Qayemet that would make the world fitting for Mashiach that year would not begin on Tu B'Shevat but would begin on Rosh Chodesh Shevat!

3. The word Qeren in Hebrew means the following: Ray of light, Radiation, Horn, or the aura around the sun during a full solar eclipse, its CORONA.  Just to make in eminently clear, notice that NOT ONLY is the word QeReN etymologically the source of the word CoRoNa, IT HAS THE EXACT SAME MEANING AS CORONA!  

Yet, the incredible events of the last month did not begin on Tu B'Shevat.  It began on the very day that Trump announced his Deal of the Century when he hosted Bibi Netanyahu in the White House.  On that very day he told Israel that our concession to the Arabs will be to give 30 additional percent of Judea and Samaria (50% of Area C) to our sworn enemies for for some substantial promises that the Palestinians have learned to share a common border with us as if they now knew how to behave like Canadians.  To be honest, compared to every Western leader in the history of our modern conflict with the Arabs, Trump's plan was far more reasonable and respectful for our rights to be here.  Yet, the halakhah to not divide Eretz Yisrael and parcel portions of it to appease our enemies is NOT a logical mishpat.  It is a Chok that HaShem gave ALL of Eretz Yisrael to His special chosen nation.  So what might seem eminently reasonable to you and me, is NOT reasonable in Heaven.  On the very day of Trump's announcement of his Deal of the Century it was Rosh Chodesh Shevat, and as it is in almost every year, Rosh Chodesh Shevat is also the Chinese New Year.  And on that very day, they announced the deadly and dangerous consequences of the CoronaVirus to the world!

Now looking at this Virus, SARS nCoV 2 and the disease it causes CoViD 19 (CoronaVirus Disease 2019), it was not "created" to kill billions of people.  It has a 2 to 4% fatality rate, and if your hospital system is not overwhelmed with a shortage of respirators, its fatality rate is less than 2%.
But, because of its  1. very long incubation and quarantine period of 14 to 24 days
2.  its wildly high R naught contagious factor of 3 to 6.5
3.  its asymptomatic contagious transmission for up to 7 days before symptoms even develop
4. its 15 to 20% serious complication rate where one needs to go to a hospital half of whom need breathing assistance from a respirator
5. and its very lengthy disease phase of 10 days to over 2 weeks

Because of these factors, this disease seems to have been formed in Heaven to crash the world economy, not to kill billions of people....  all starting in the month of Shevat 5780.  With 95% certitude I believe that this IS the QeRen Qayement killing event at the End of Days.  Where do people stick their QeReN Qayemet in Olam HaZeh in Western Countries?  In the Stock Market of course!  And who runs one of the most extensive websites and news services on the Stock Market in the Western world?  former NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg of course!  Is it any accident that his political fortunes are crashing at the same time that this Virus is crashing stock markets all over the world?  The power center of the Erev Rav is that they hold most of the financial wealth in Klal Yisrael.  As the pasuk says in Shemot (Exodus) 12:
 וְגַם-עֵרֶב רַב, עָלָה אִתָּם, וְצֹאן וּבָקָר, מִקְנֶה כָּבֵד מְאֹד. 38 And a mixed multitude (The Erev Rav) went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.  They are most of our billionaires, let us be honest.  So as the Qeren Qayemet market crashes, so will their power and wealth... setting the stage for Mashiach, G-d willing, THIS YEAR!

The Upcoming Election: For Whom to Vote

It has been a long time since I posted.  I have wanted to post recently, but I have had to deal with a series of crises regarding several matters.  Not all of them have worked out perfectly, but my daughter is back home with us in Israel while other things are slowly being worked out, Baruch HaShem.  So to get back into the mood of posting, I thought I would start by just posting.  I am working on an important post about how quickly we are careening toward Geulah.  But that post will be for later.  Right now I want to post about the Israeli election, the critical election that lies before us.  There is a better than 75% chance that this second election in 6 months will end up with no government a second time.  According to a famous medrash, two inconclusive elections at the end of days will end up with Mashiach coming before a third such attempted election can take place.  From the Talmud Sanhedrin 78a:

The disciples of Rabbi Yossi the son of Kisma questioned him, asking when the son of David (the Messiah) will appear. And he answered: I am afraid you will request from me a sign as well. And they assured him that they would not. He then said to them: When this gate will fall, be rebuilt and fall again, be rebuilt again and fall again. And before it will be rebuilt for the third time the Messiah will appear. Tractate Sanhedrin (98a).

According to Rav Yekutiel Fish, these gates are attempted governments.  A government will fall which it did late in 2018.  There will be two elections where governments cannot be formed, and before there is a third such election Mashiach will come.....  Well this 17th of Elul (17th Sept 2019) is the second such election.  Now the 17th of Elul is not just another date.  It is the first time that the Dove was sent out from Noach's Ark which returned that evening because it could find no rest for its foot.  No place in Eretz Yisrael to settler or even to pluck an olive branch which it did the following week on the 23rd or the 24th of Elul when Noach sent forth the Dove a second time.  (the 23rd of Elul if that Elul in the year of the Flood only had 29 days or the 24th of Elul if the Elul in the year of the Flood had 30 days).  It turns out that there was a time exactly 80 years ago when the Dove, Klal Yisrael, had no place to rest its feet since the gates to Eretz Yisrael were closed.  That date was the 17th of Elul 5699 (1st Sept 1939) when Hitler Yemach Shmo invaded Poland.  3 million Polish Jews would then be murdered because they had no place to run to, no place to rest their feet.  The British under Chamberlain had closed the entrance gate to Eretz Yisrael.  So the Dove was truly stuck, and the murder of 90% of Polish Jewry over 5 1/2 years was assured.  So the first time the Dove was sent forth with no place to rest in Eretz Yisrael for its feet was on the 17th of Elul 5699 (1st Sept 1939).  

Several decades later we arrive at the 23rd of Elul 5761 (11th Sept 2001).  It was a Tuesday, and it was precisely one week before Rosh HaShannah.  Even the Ashkenazim had started saying Selichot, joining the Sephardic world that started saying Selichot on Rosh Chodesh Elul.  So many Jews who were saying Selichot were late to work that morning of Sept 11th at the World Trade Center.  It was approximately 8:45am when the first tower was hit, and shortly thereafter, 17 minutes later, the second tower was also hit when 19 Wahhabi Muslim terrorists (the total on four separate planes) took over the cockpits in order to fly two planes into the twin towers of the World  Trade Center and one plane into the Pentagon.  Now, we ask, why the World Trade Center?  What does that have to do with the Dove returning to the Ark with an Olive Branch in its Mouth, about which Rashi says "Better are the Bitter Olive fruits of the Hands of G-d than the Sweet as honey fruits of the hands of Man."  It must be remembered that the Dove picked that olive branch from Eretz Yisrael.  So the Dove, preferring its Freedom and its dependence upon G-d, chose that bitter fruit to return to the Ark.  In our Galut of the last 1900 years, one thing united the Ashkenazic and Sephardic world in terms of how Jews in that long galut could earn a significant parnassah.  Specifically in the Ashkenazic world Jews could either collect the taxes at the behest of the King of the Land Owners, Lend Money at interest to non-Jews since the Xtian world did not allow Xtians into this profession. and to engage in global international mercantile trade.  As a matter of fact, this last profession was a favorite of Jews in the Sephardic world too.  Even the Rambam's brother, upon vowing to support the Rambam's learning for a portion of the Rambam's Olam HaBa, was a World or International Trader.  In so many ways, the surest yet riskiest way to wealth in the world was for Jews in both the Xtian and the Muslim world to be involved in global trade for 1900 years.  Sadly the Rambam's brother died on one of his global trade expeditions.  Yet, Global or World Trade was the key to accessing the sweet fruit of the hands of Man over the course of our long exile even with those risks.  So on that very day dedicated to rejecting those sweet fruits for the bitter fruits of Eretz Yisrael, those Two Towers of World Trade came a tumbling down.  And many Jews understood that message, and in the early 2000s came on Aliyah.

So over the course of 80 years, we have passed from the 17th of Elul through the 23rd or the 24th of Elul to what potentially could be Rosh HaShanah of total freedom to be with our King in the Holy Land, free from all encumbrances with the gentile world.  I am not saying for sure that this is that year when the Dove finally comes to rest in Eretz Yisrael on Rosh HaShanah, but our 80 years of Gevurot seem to be climaxing because of this coming election.

Those who read this blog know that I have written extensively about how Bibi Netanyahu is the last leader before Mashiach comes based on the Yichus of this last leader described meticulously in Zecharia 12.  As that last leader is assassinated by the Erev Rav (or forced to leave politics because of looming phony indictments), Ben David rises in the chaos.  That chaos can easily be created by a second election in which no one can form a government.  From Zecharia 12 we see that this last leader must be from the House of Natan..... check.  He must be a Levite ...... check.  And he must intensely hold to the mantle of Shimi ben Geira to destroy Amaeleq in the Persian Empire ....... check.  Bibi has all three yichus points to his name.  He IS that leader.  Now since Rav Meir Kahane zt"l, the last Mashiach ben Yosef to die a violent death was for all intents and purposes murdered by ARMiLuS (Ehud OLMeRT, notice the same consonants) when Olmert wrote the Kach Law banning him from the Knesset.  (2 years later Kahane was murdered by an assassin.)  So Bibi, does not have to suffer the same fate at the hands of Armilus, and he may yet survive, albeit after passing the scepter of leadership over to Mashiach as he is forced to leave the scene.  In short, with this election we are about to enter the Zecharia 12 Twilight Zone.  On that note, we should see an opening for Mashiach ben David to enter from stage right, even if none of the candidates running is Mashiach himself...., but one of them might very well be Mashiach's Lawyer in the Erev Rav Courts and in the dungeons where Shabak can hold young men for months on end without a Writ of Habeas Corpus.  One such man was Meir Ettinger who was the leader of the Yordei Duma, those falsely accused of arson/ murder by Shabak, in the Duma Arson case.  He was held without trial and without charge and without evidence for 10 full months.  On that note, I introduce to you, his Attorney during those dark months, Itamar ben Gvir.

I am voting for Otzma now for sure since they have now crossed the Kav Chassimah in at least 7 different polls in one week since Feiglin, blessedly, dropped out.

I believe that Itamar ben Gvir is NOT Mashiach, but he is very likely Mashiach's lawyer in the lowly Erev Rav Courts and in the dungeon's of Shabak's Jewish Division torture chambers.  I am sure that they have a 500 year old Torqemada torture rack which they proudly used against Meir Ettinger and the other Yordei Duma, those tortured by Shabak to extract confessions when they were trying to frame young "hilltop" youth for the Duma Arson/Murder case.  Writ of Habeas Corpus?  Are you kidding?  There is no such burden of evidence to torture 20 or 25 year old idealists here in Israel.  But, there was Itamar ben Gvir the entire time trying to defend the rights of young men who technically had no rights.

So if you want to open of the door for Mashiach ben David as Bibi stumbles and for the second time in a row is not able to form a government, you have no choice but to vote for OTZMA YEHUDIT.   Right now, Otzma is on a knife's edge.  There is a chance that he will not cross the 3.25% of the vote necessary to get at least 4 seats in the Knesset.  So only vote for him if you are sick and tired of the sheker that this country's political system runs on while at least voting for a party with a greater than 50% chance of getting the minimum votes.  Otzma should have been included in Yamina's umbrella technical bloc, but because of Sinat Chinam on Rosh Chodesh Av, Otzma was not included in that technical bloc, and Ayelet Shaked failed in her potential role as Ayelet HaShachar.  So perhaps, perhaps, this is the way, Mashiach's lawyer might get his foot into the door as the Levite grandson of the House of Natan falters.

From Ayin to Dalet in Qriat Shema: The Secret Geulah Code in the Torah

It has been months, and I have not posted anything new.  Perhaps because of the status quo and a bursting forth of G-d's blessing on the American economy for moving their Embassy to Yerushalayim and for Trump's withdrawal from the Iran Nuclear Deal, Geulah could not progress.  If Mashiach were to come in a very pleasant way, 5778 was the year.  It was the end of a 70 year cycle of Chevlei Mashiach which began with the founding of the State of Israel in 5708.  The hints for this are in many places.  But here is the one that is directly from next week's Torah portion VaYechi Chapter 49:

  לֹא-יָסוּר שֵׁבֶט מִיהוּדָה, וּמְחֹקֵק מִבֵּין רַגְלָיו, עַד כִּי-יָבֹא שִׁילֹה, וְלוֹ יִקְּהַת עַמִּים. 10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff (or engraving tool) from between his feet, as long as men come to Shiloh (or Until Shilo comes); and unto him shall the obedience of the peoples be.
יא  אֹסְרִי לַגֶּפֶן עִירֹה, וְלַשֹּׂרֵקָה בְּנִי אֲתֹנוֹ; כִּבֵּס בַּיַּיִן לְבֻשׁוֹ, וּבְדַם-עֲנָבִים סוּתֹה. 11 Binding his foal (or his City) unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washeth his garments in wine, and his vesture in the blood of grapes;
יב  חַכְלִילִי עֵינַיִם, מִיָּיִן; וּלְבֶן-שִׁנַּיִם, מֵחָלָב.  {פ} 12 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.

This of course is the blessing that Ya'akov Avinu gave to Yehudah when all Ya'akov's sons gathered around him to hear him tell them what would happen to them at the End of Days.  So the blessing to Yehudah is obviously significant for the coming of Mashiach.  The blessing is definitely shrouded in esoteric meaning.  On the simple level it mght be difficult to understand.  Believe it or not, Shiloh may be a reference to the present (and prayerfully last) Prime Minister of the lowly pre-Messianic kingdom established by the Erev Rav.  It means Gift to him (Shai Lo)  Why would the present PM deserve to get this honorable mention in the Torah?  because when Yehudah came down to Egypt, he was able to bring Binyamin down with him for his hidden brother Yosef to see ONLY if he would swear to his father that he, Yehudah, would accept upon himself whatever would be decreed upon Binyamin.  He would become Binyamin's Areiv (Guarantor) for Binyamin's safety in Mitzraim.  Yehudah had teshuvah to do.  It was his idea that Yosef should be sold into slavery so that Shimon and Leivi would not end of executing him for threatening through his dreams to lord over them.   So Yehudah had the "brilliant" idea that he knew his brothers would accept.  Let us sell Yosef to the Yishmaelite merchants headed to Mitzraim rather than murdering him.  As far as the lesser of two evils go, Yehudah had it right, but Kidnapping is also a capital offense.  So when it came time to bring the only full blood brother of Yosef down to Mitzraim, Yehudah offered himself up as Binyamin's Areiv, that he himself would go into slavery so that Binyamin would be able to return to his father.  Yehudah understood the true essence of teshuvah that when given an identical set of circumstances with a brother from the same mother that Yehudah sold into slavery, in this case Yehudah himself would become the slave.  So down they went to Egypt with Binyamin as the mysterious 2nd to Pharaoh had demanded.  The silver goblet that Yosef claimed to use for Divination purposes was found in Binyamin's sack, and Yosef says that Binyamin will now become his slave.  Yehudah stands up and says, No!  Binyamin goes back to their father in Canaan, and he Yehudah will become Yosef's slave for life in Binyamin's stead!  Yosef sees that at least the one who recommended that he should be sold into slavery has done a full repentance.  He reveals himself to his brothers before they figure out that the Second to Pharaoh is their long lost brother in one of the epic moments in world history.  So suddenly both Yosef and Binyamin are bawling tears on each other's shoulders as the stunned brothers stand around bewildered over what has just happened, realizing that at least one of Yosef's dreams had just transpired, for all 11 sheaves of wheat (all 11 brothers including Binyamin) had bowed down to Yosef just as he had dreamed 22 years prior.  And Rashi says, "Yosef is crying for the two Holy of Holies that were destroyed in Binyamin's territory during the destructions of the First and Second Temple while Yosef is bawling for the Mishkan that was destined to be destroyed in Shilo in Yosef's territory because of the poor behavior of Eli, the High Priest's, two sons Pinchus and Chofni.  So while Yehudah was trying to repent for his great sin, a sin whose taste we suffer from till this present day for all sins that are Bein Adam leChaveiro, HaShem had other plans... which is usually the case.  Yehudah had brought Binyamin down to Mitzraim unbeknownst to him as a long lost "Gift" to his brother Yosef.  So at the End of Days HaShem vowed to Yehudah that He (YKWK) would bring Binyamin to Yerushalayim as a "gift to him or Shai lo", to Mashiach ben David.  Binyamin Natan Yahu (YKW gives Binyamin) or Shilo would therefore be the last PM before Mashiach comes.  So in Ya'akov's blessing, this is at least in part the meaning of the first verse above.

Continued for later......  There will be several entries for this topic since it is a rather lengthy one.

Guatemala: The 2nd Nation

Guatemala with a little less fanfare than the American opening became the second country to move their Embassy from Tel Aviv to Yerushalayim today.  I thought that I should note the following:

Thank you to the descendants of another great ancient Civilization, the Mayans. They are the nation of Ophir ben Yoktan (Yucatan) who sent tons of gold (420 kikar of gold to be exact) to King Shlomo to build the First Temple in Yerushalayim, dutifully recorded in the Book of Kings. In the great merit of those who sent the gold from the Biblical El Dorado for this holy purpose, you have been given the privilege to be the second nation to open your Embassy in the City of Yerushalayim of Gold.

UPDATE: For those who may want a source as to how we know that the descendants of Yoktan went to the New World, we have the following verses from Chapter 10 of Bereishit:
ה  וּלְעֵבֶר יֻלַּד, שְׁנֵי בָנִים:  שֵׁם הָאֶחָד פֶּלֶג, כִּי בְיָמָיו נִפְלְגָה הָאָרֶץ, וְשֵׁם אָחִיו, יָקְטָן. 25 And unto Eber were born two sons; the name of the one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Yoktan.
כו  וְיָקְטָן יָלַד, אֶת-אַלְמוֹדָד וְאֶת-שָׁלֶף, וְאֶת-חֲצַרְמָוֶת, וְאֶת-יָרַח. 26 And Yoktan begot Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah;
כז  וְאֶת-הֲדוֹרָם וְאֶת-אוּזָל, וְאֶת-דִּקְלָה. 27 and Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah;
כח  וְאֶת-עוֹבָל וְאֶת-אֲבִימָאֵל, וְאֶת-שְׁבָא. 28 and Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba;

כט  וְאֶת-אוֹפִר וְאֶת-חֲוִילָה, וְאֶת-יוֹבָב; כָּל-אֵלֶּה, בְּנֵי יָקְטָן. 29 and Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab; all these were the sons of Yoktan.

Some commentators refer to "the earth was divided" statement as referring to the Dispersion of the nations at the Tower of Bavel.  The problem with that interpretation is that all 70 nations were dispersed, not just Peleg and Yoktan.  So the verse must refer to something else, something that G-d knew and that our sages may have not known about because of the generation in which they lived.  The fact is that HaShem created a vast ocean between EurAsia/ Africa and the Americas.  The ancients knew that this expanse existed.  Apparently, the sons of Eber who were Peleg and Yoktan decided to split the world between them.  The descendants of Peleg stayed in EurAsia/ Africa while the descendants of Yoktan eventually went to the Americas.  I heard this in the name of Rav Matityahu Glazierson Shlit"a.  I will have to find his discussion on this another time.  There is another implication from all this.  Notice that Yoktan had a son whose name was also Chavilah, just like Kush had a son with the identical name.  We learn from the 2nd chapter of Bereishit that the River Pishon flows around the Land of Chavilah, but the Torah does not tell us WHICH Chavilah.  If it is the Chavilah, the son of Kush, the reference would be to the Nile River as being the River Pishon, but if it is the Chavilah in the New World, then PiShoN might be the MiSSiSSiPPi.  Notice that Pishon is the name Mississippi backwards using Grimm's Laws of etymology where Ns and Ms are linguistically interchangeable.  So while Ophir stayed and built his Civilization around the Yucatan Peninsula, Chavilah migrated north to another Pre-Columbian Civilization in the Mid- Mississippi River Valley.  A larger discussion of the implications of this can continue in the Comments.

A Pence for My Thoughts: A Hint About the Face of G-d at the End of Days.

So Michael Pence has in his name Peni'el, Pen from Pence and Keil from Micha'el, the mighty prince of Israel who informed Avraham and Sarah at this time, next year, you will have a son, a son who will be circumcised on the 8th day. So Ya'akov received the name Yisrael at Alot HaShachar after the all night wrestling match with SamKel (the angel of Edom). There are 72 minutes between Alot HaShachar and sunrise, 70 years of birthpangs + 2 years of Chezkat Mashiach while Mashiach proves himself. So how do we know that we are entering those final two years before sunrise? From the following in Bereishit 32:

כה וַיִּוָּתֵר יַעֲקֹב, לְבַדּוֹ; וַיֵּאָבֵק אִישׁ עִמּוֹ, עַד עֲלוֹת הַשָּׁחַר. 25 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day (Alot HaShachar).
כו וַיַּרְא, כִּי לֹא יָכֹל לוֹ, וַיִּגַּע, בְּכַף-יְרֵכוֹ; וַתֵּקַע כַּף-יֶרֶךְ יַעֲקֹב, בְּהֵאָבְקוֹ עִמּוֹ. 26 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was strained (The Holocaust, a very deep wound resulting from a Churban at the end of the dark night just before Alot HaShachar.   
Me'am Loez said this sinew corresponds with the negative commandment against Rechilut.  There are 365 sinews in the human body, and there are 365 negative commandments including the mitzvah against Rechilut (talebearing).  In this case the talebearing was the talebearing of  bar Kamtza against Kamtza which destroyed the 2nd Temple.), as he wrestled with him.
כז וַיֹּאמֶר שַׁלְּחֵנִי, כִּי עָלָה הַשָּׁחַר; וַיֹּאמֶר לֹא אֲשַׁלֵּחֲךָ, כִּי אִם-בֵּרַכְתָּנִי. 27 And he said: 'Let me go, for the dawn breaketh.' And he said: 'I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.'
כח וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלָיו, מַה-שְּׁמֶךָ; וַיֹּאמֶר, יַעֲקֹב. 28 And he said unto him: 'What is thy name?' And he said: 'Jacob.'
כט וַיֹּאמֶר, לֹא יַעֲקֹב יֵאָמֵר עוֹד שִׁמְךָ--כִּי, אִם-יִשְׂרָאֵל: כִּי-שָׂרִיתָ עִם-אֱלֹהִים וְעִם-אֲנָשִׁים, וַתּוּכָל. 29 And he said: 'Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel; for thou hast striven with God and with men, and hast prevailed.'the founding of the State of Israel at Alot HaShachar in 5708
ל וַיִּשְׁאַל יַעֲקֹב, וַיֹּאמֶר הַגִּידָה-נָּא שְׁמֶךָ, וַיֹּאמֶר, לָמָּה זֶּה תִּשְׁאַל לִשְׁמִי; וַיְבָרֶךְ אֹתוֹ, שָׁם. 30 And Jacob asked him, and said: 'Tell me, I pray thee, thy name.' And he said: 'Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name?' And he, (the angel of Edom) blessed him there.
לא וַיִּקְרָא יַעֲקֹב שֵׁם הַמָּקוֹם, פְּנִיאֵל: כִּי-רָאִיתִי אֱלֹהִים פָּנִים אֶל-פָּנִים, וַתִּנָּצֵל נַפְשִׁי. 31 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: 'for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.'
לב וַיִּזְרַח-לוֹ הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ, כַּאֲשֶׁר עָבַר אֶת-פְּנוּאֵל; וְהוּא צֹלֵעַ, עַל-יְרֵכוֹ. 32 And the sun rose upon him as he passed over Penu'el, and he limped upon his thigh.(72 minutes after Alot HaShachar which is likely 72 years since 5708).

Now I can hear already the shouting and the screaming.  Michael Pence is a Trinitarian.  He is a Xtian who may or may not believe in the mangod as his god or as G-d's partner in addition to the Creator of the Universe as G-d Himself.  So I simply point out, that it is the angel of Edom who wrestled with Ya'akov, and it is THAT angel who blesses Ya'akov at Alot HaShachar BEFORE the Truth of G-d's Oneness has become obvious to Mankind.  That only takes place at Sunrise, 72 minutes later.  And wow, did Mike Pence deliver in his speech before the Knesset.  He issued brachot since Rosh Chodesh Shevat that cannot be taken back.  We have no idea if Donald Trump might "change his mind" about Eretz Yisrael because he thinks that he can put into motion the real estate deal of the century and with his chutzpah, might bring world peace.  I realize that Donald Trump according to observations of rational people, is emotionally "unreliable" and that he, like the kings of ancient Persia from whom his soul root seems to come, might change his mind on a whim of intense emotion.  On the other hand, he seems to be doing teshuvah, and the man who ran for President is now more grounded in a complementary set of moral principles than the man who was running for POTUS in 5776.  And by the way, in this sphere of making and implementing stable and consistent policies, Pence is very emotionally stable and emotionally reliable.  And for sure, there was never a question in the General election.  The Suha Arafat hugging Amaleqia whom he ran against in the General election would have been ten thousand times more evil than Trump could have ever hoped to be.  If she, the Hilly in Oholibama, the Hivite snake, had won, we would already hear the roar of international troops intent of making Judea and Samaria and half of Yerushalayim Judenrein in the Jordan Valley sent by UN Sec Council decree, G-d forbid.  So Baruch HaShem, HaShem has been kind, and now that the time to receive Edom's brachah has arrived, it has arrived in spades.  "And he has recognized us as the same people who received the Torah and settled the land for over 1300 years from 2488 until the destruction of the 2nd Temple in 3830 and the crushing of the bar Kochba Revolt 65 years later in 3895.  They, he and his boss, have recognized our eternal connection to the Holy City where G-d Himself has dwelt in our midst where He Himself has placed His Holy Name.  Even if the former Rav of the British Empire, Yonatan Sacks Shlit"a, wrote half of his speech, Mike Pence sought him out to help him reach a spiritual height in order to dispense a brachah from the mouth of an angel that no change of policy on a whim can possible remove.  

If you want to comment on why there is a S sounding ending at the end of V.P. Pence's last name, by all means let me know.  I have not yet figured that one out.  In light of all this, I would love to link to this beautiful song written and originally performed by Rav Shlomo Carlbach.  It is one of his 600 melodies that he wrote in his lifetime.  During his lifetime, it was not one of his most popular melodies, and it seems to have been given a revival as other artists have sung this song posthumously, including this version by Mordechai ben David.  It is now a mainstay at every Jewish wedding.  Perhaps its latent popularity is because we all know deep down that those 72 years are reaching completion.  I commented on the Youtube page about this video.

Stormwinds of Yemen, the Final Blast of the Shofar

For a Refuah Sheleimah of Menachem ben Rifka of the Absolute Truth 613 Blog.

I published this two years ago, and the missile that the Houthi rebels shot over the Riyadh civilian airport that the Saudis had to shoot down was shot on the Fourth of November 2017, exactly two years after this post.  Now this is the second time in the last two months where I have reposted a post that I wrote two years ago.  There is a message in that.  Perhaps, without predicting, the events of 5775 and 5776, the Shmittah and Yovel years, have simply been transposed to 5777 and 5778, two years later.  This was the message that I wrote about when the Cubs won the World Series in the Fall of 2016 in one of my posts about how HaShem for awhile there was trying to get His message out through Sports.  The (Bear)Cubs won in 7 games in Extra Innings by a score of 8 to 7 in that 7th Game!.  So we are now in overtime after the Yovel year in 5776, and the events of 5777 and 5778 where "The Spiritual Bears" or Dubiel, Russia and Persia, are now taking over the World!  And they won over the Cleveland Indians which is if everyone remembers, America in KaleivLand which is Middle Heartland America at -50.  KaleivLand here in Israel, the Hevron/ Kiryat Arba/ Othniel/ Hevron Hills metroplex is the first place in Israel to potentially reach the 50th Gate of purity Even before Yerushalayim reaches it!  Why? Because in order to reach the 50th Gate bein Adam leMakom in Yerushalayim, the nation or the nation's spiritual representatives in these places must first reach the 50th Gate bein Adam veChaVeiRo in CheVRon and in the Chevron Hills in places like Othniel.  Notice the word Chaveiro is the essence of the name Chevron.   It is why the Avot chose to live out their lives there along with some sojourns further south to Beer Sheva.  They wanted to reach the 50th level bein Adam leChaveiro in the place on earth most conducive to reaching that level, and only on very special occasions did they travel to Har Moriah or Ir Shalem to serve G-d bein Adam leMakom.  A telling lesson for today and in ancient times.  It was so important that the Qorbon tamid for Shacharit could not be offered up in Yerushalayim until the sun had risen in Chevron!  So on the opposite end of this scale was America at -50, a dubious distinction that was reached in the Early Summer of 5776 when Omar Mateen walked into that homosexual bar on Shavuot night, (the 49th anniversary of the beginning of the Summer of Promiscuous love in San Francisco) and murdered 49 homosexuals in which he himself became the 50th dead body in that bar at Alot HaShachar on Shavuot morning when the SWAT team burst through the wall and brought him down in a hail of bullets.  One month later the Republicans coronated their candidate Donald Trump in Kaleivland, Ohio (a city founded by MOSES CLEAVELAND) AFTER America had already sunk to that dubious level of cultural quicksand, -50.  The fact that in both cases, Kaleiv's lands in Israel and in America were bequeathed directly by MOSES or Moshe Rabbeinu, made both places conducive to reaching the 50th Gate before everyone else who was awarded their portion in a lottery conducted by Moshe's Assistant, Yehoshua bin Nun.  So the Lands of Kaleiv were bequeathed directly by Moshe with no lottery in the next generation being necessary.  But alas, America, actually the Middle America of American culture was given a full year to repent of falling to this level under the leadership of their miraculously elected leader, Donald Trump.  And that year concluded, and America in cultural quicksand is disintegrating so badly that plaques honoring where George Washington sat in church are being removed by his Virginia congregation because like Robert E. Lee, George Washington was a slave owner!

Now I will agree that Mashiach did not come and that the Messianic Era was not "born" by the end of Sukkot 5777.  It was not destined that Persia should fall into the hands of Rome over the course of the nine months allotted for that to happen.  This is hinted at in the Gemorrah in Yoma 10 even if it is not explicitly stated.  Here is the entire section of the Gemorrah in question from Halakhah.com:

Rabbah b. Bar Hana in the name of R. Johanan, on the authority of R. Judah b. Ila'i, said: Rome is designed to fall into the hands of Persia, that may be concluded by inference a minori ad majus: If in the case of the first Sanctuary, which the sons of Shem [Solomon] built and the Chaldeans (Babylonians) destroyed, the Chaldeans fell into the hands of the Persians,37 then how much more should this be so with the second Sanctuary, which the Persians built and the Romans destroyed, that the Romans should fall into the hands of the Persians.38 Rav said: Persia will fall into the hands of Rome. Thereupon R. Kahana and R. Assi asked of Rav: [Shall] the builders (Persia) fall into the hands of the destroyers (Rome)? — He said to them: Yes, it is the decree of the King.39 Others say: He replied to them: They too are guilty for they destroyed the synagogues. It has also been taught in accord with the above, Persia will fall into the hands of Rome, first because they destroyed the synagogues, and then because it is the King's decree that the builders fall into the hands of the destroyers. Rav also said: The son of David will not come until the wicked kingdom of Rome will have spread [its sway] over the whole world for nine months, as it is said: Therefore will He give them up, until the time that she who travaileth hath brought forth; then the residue of his brethren shall return with the children of Israel.40

Now that last verse is from Micah 5 which foretells the final nine months of Olam HaZeh before Mashiachzeit, or Yemot HaMashiach is "born".  Notice the juxtaposition.  First Rav says that Persia will fall into the hands of Rome because the King decrees  that those who built the Temple should fall into the hands of those who destroyed it (Rome) and like Rome, Persia also destroyed synagogues.  Then the Gemorrah does what it often does and quotes other things that Rav said about Rome.  In this case he basically repeats himself by saying the same thing a different way!  In order for Rome to hold sway over the world for nine months, Persia must either fall  into the hands of Rome DURING those nine months or at the end of those nine months.  In short the bipolar world has to become a unipolar world because Persia falls into the hands of Rome.  The other possibility is that Persia "pretends" to keep all treaties that it is a party to signing during those nine months while silently working on its military expansion plans under the surface.  This way Rome would appear to hold sway for nine months, and after nine months Persia would cease to hide its intentions!  Well this is precisely what has happened.  After the first nine months of Trump's Presidency, Persia is becoming a menace to the entire world  The Sunni Arabs are waking up and smelling the coffee!  So what this also seems to mean is that Persia WILL NOT fall into the hands of Rome but will instead with Russian material help go forth to try to take over the world in overtime, this 8th year of the 578th decade, the 5770s.  And this time it is unclear if Rome can stop her.  As a matter of fact, there is no reason to assume that Rome can really stop Persia at all after these first nine months, but Rome will now try.

Now to bring the year 5777 to a close, I must first answer what did happen on Hoshana Rabbah 5778 at the end of the year?  Well it happened in N. Korea at their Nuke Mountain.  After testing N. Korea's first Hydrogen bomb in Elul 5777, the mountain underneath the caps on the mountain became very unstable.  Then on either the eve of Hoshana Rabbah or on Hoshana Rabbah night itself, the foundation of that mountain collapsed killing 100 people immediately and another 100 people when a rescue team was sent to rescue then while the foundation of Nuke Mountain completely gave way!   Yet, all this news was completely hidden from the world for three weeks after the fact.  Only less than two weeks ago did this news come out, perhaps because the foundation collapse of Nuke Mountain was so complete that nuclear by-products may have entered the groundwater that North Korea shares with China!  This is a temporary setback for Un's nuclear program.  He has lost his main test facility, and he probably needs to build another somewhere perhaps under the same mountain but in a parallel shaft.  Also while he has continued to shoot off his mouth at Trump, just today calling him an old lunatic, he has not shot off any missiles since Sukkot.  He is obviously restructuring his efforts after the catastrophe at Nuke Mountain.  So where do we see all this in the Torah.  Well we see it in the 5777th pasuk of the Torah itself, Rav Levi Saadia Nahmani's favorite pasuk when dealing with N. Korea (Deut. 32:22):

 כִּי-אֵשׁ קָדְחָה בְאַפִּי,  {ר}  וַתִּיקַד עַד-שְׁאוֹל תַּחְתִּית;  {ס}  וַתֹּאכַל אֶרֶץ וִיבֻלָהּ,  {ר}  וַתְּלַהֵט מוֹסְדֵי הָרִים.  {ס 22 For a fire is kindled in My nostril, and burns like a drill unto the depths of the nether-world (Sheoul), and devoureth the earth with her produce, and setteth ablaze the foundations of the mountains.

So right here in this pasuk we see both, the California fires that destroyed the grapevines in Napa Valley wine country and the destruction of the foundation of N. Korea's Nuke Mountain on Hoshana Rabbah!  And that destruction came from the blast of the Hydrogen bomb during the months of Elul under the cap of Nuke Mountain.  So rather than destroying Seoul with a blast of HaShem's nostrils just to the south of the 38th parallel, the explosion literally went downwards inside that mountain!  Yet, the crops that would have been destroyed by a nuclear missile against Norther California were destroyed by the worst wildfires in California history instead!  So at least for this past year, the Fire was contained for those who deserved it most:  The North Koreans and their nuclear ambitions and the State in the United States and the area where it began that sent the United States on its 50 year plunge toward the Abyss, San Francisco, California.  At least in round one, the good people of Seoul did not deserve to be a target of G-d's Wrath.  Half of them study Talmud because they want to learn the Wisdom of the Jews even if they learn it from dry sources.  There is something to be said about a culture that wants to give so much kavod to G-dly wisdom.  So, Baruch HaShem, Seoul was spared, round One.

Now all along we have been saying that this final war will be a two front war.  1. The Korean Front in the Western Pacific and 2. the Iranian front specifically around Batzrah, the Shiite stronghold in southern Iraq at the confluence to two of the four Rivers that come out of Gan Eden, the Chidekel (Tigris) and the Euphrates.   We learn this from the verse quoted in the Zohar VaEira 32a itself about a war at the edge of the world, that the L-rd will have a sacrifice in Batzrah and a Great Slaughter in the Land of Edom (Yishayahu 34).  The only way that this verse could have anything to do with that passage in the Zohar about a war with a nation at the edge of the world (at the international dateline) is if that nation, North Korea, has an unbreakable alliance with the Shiite powers who control the City of Batzrah.  And that Shiite power is Iran.  So until now it was not clear which front of this war would explode first, the North Korean theater or the Persian theater.  But what was clear from so many years ago, the place in the Persian theater of the Yalkut Shimoni war starting with a machloket between Persia and the King of Arabia that would first explode in the Middle East was in Yemen.  And now I present my post on this matter from two years ago with some additions:

  I wanted to help you complete the picture from the perspective of Emunah. We have been Crowning HaShem as King of the Universe every Rosh HaShanah since Sinai with blasts of the Shofar. The three final p'sukim in Musaph Rosh HaShanah dealing with the blasts of the Shofar (Shofarot) provide the key to the Final Redemption, the three blasts of the Shofar in Nevua for the Acharit HaYamim. The Third blast, the Stormwinds of Teiman (Yemen) has JUST OCCURRED! This is a post on my blog from almost precisely two years ago. I should point out that the missile from Yemen last Saturday night took place on the 16th of MarCheshvan, the Day before G-d Judged the entire world at the time of the Great Flood.
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 (This was a truly freak hurricane from two years ago). 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. That was the first shofar blast. It was "Like" the blast of a shofar because the State of Israel was founded by the Erev Rav. The Erev Rav has provided a cocoon for Torah Judaism to grow and thrive without bringing on the wrath of the nations of the world that they would send troops to destroy the upstart State. So the Modern State by virtue of the fact that it behaves like the Western nations of the world, has fooled the Satan to allow nourishment for the future Messianic State while functioning at the level of statecraft like a Western country. So its founding was LIKE the blast of a Shofar.
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. Russian Jewry was a lost Jewry who lost its connection to Judaism while Ethiopian Jewry survived isolated in Ethiopia as a castaway nation when porters from the sacking of Mitzraim by Assyria were no longer needed by the Assyrian Army. So the porters from the Shevatim of Dan, Naftali, and Asher wandered down to Ethiopia to join the Queen of Sheba's existing Jewish country from 300 years prior. They survived beyond the River Sanbat, the tributary to the Nile River known by the gentiles as the Blue Nile whose source is from Lake Gondar in Gondar Province in Ethiopia. The bulk of the Ethiopian community that came during Op. Shlomo and Sheba were redeemed on Shabbat, the one day per week when the waters of the Sanbat River were placid.
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 (watching our misery under the thumb of the Erev Rav), 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 (Yemen). As if it were on cue suddenly, the news comes out:
This is the third and final shofar blast of the Final Redemption..... The Stormwinds of Yemen. This is why the last war had to begin in Yemen.  And the first shot of this war was fired by the Iranian supported and armed Houthi rebels when they shot a missile over the Riyadh, Saudi Arabian domestic airport on the night of the 16th of MarCheshvan 5778.  

Now how long will it take for this war to finally get really hot?  I will tell you right now.....  I don't know, and I won't hazard any guesses.  But the beauty of what is happening is that the last War has begun!
