Greece (Darkness) is the Face of Rome (the Abyss): Part 2
Greece is falling apart. Now that Papandreou has passed his Draconian property tax increases, the situation in Greece is decaying into total chaos. Any sense that it was once a great civilization is about to disappear. For example, here. If you just read this, we are talking about a country that is in immediate near term collapse, and no one is going to rescue it from itself. It will disintegrate and implode in a way that we have not seen since the collapse of Alexandria centuries ago where Ptolemy's library was raided and destroyed by the citizens themselves. But Alexandria was an outpost, one of the four offshoots, of the mighty Greek Empire. The disintegration now is in Greece itself, in the heart of Athens. I posted this on Yeranen Ya'akov blog earlier this evening. I hope that this clarifies.
Kativa and Chatima tova Ya'ak, now that the molad (the birth of the new moon) passed at 5:08 pm Israel time, keep an eye on Yavan (Ion or Greece), for Yavan will lead the way in the collapse of Edom (Western Civilization). While Yavan has been a good guy this year when it stopped those flotilla ships, this judgment in 5772 is for all time. And Yavan's influence over the historic reference frame of 4115 years since the Mabul has not been very positive. Now that the molad has passed, we can mention the exact time that it occurred publicly because the Satan did not know the time when it occurred. Too bad Satan, you missed the boat (You cannot stop it), for the ship of Geulah has already sailed.
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-09-27/roubini-says-u-s-is-running-out-of-bullets-in-what-may-become-recession.html The economic news is down right horrible. Yet the Dow is going through the stratosphere. Why? Here are my thoughts.
So Ya'ak to complete Rav Fish's wonderful thoughts, I leave you with the following: In the year that Mashiach ben Yosef shows up by zayin Adar, for Yehoshua was given his authority as the leader on zayin Adar, Klal Yisrael would be elevated from the 32nd camp in the desert, Midbar Tzin, which is where Mariam died exactly one year before entering Eretz Yisrael on the 10th of Nisan. The Klal arrived at Hor HaHar, the 33rd camp in the desert, around Lag B'Omer. They remained there until the end of Av to mourn the death of Aharon for 30 days. On Rosh Chodesh Elul they went to Tzalmona. As I have pointed out before in order for all the events that occurred at the 41st and last place in the desert Arvot Moav could occur, the Klal would have had to arrive there by the 15th of Kislev. This means that to be at each campsite for an approximately equal amount of time, the Bnei Yisrael had to be at each campsite from the 34th campsite until the 40th campsite about two weeks per campsite. That is from Rosh Chodesh Elul until the 15th of Kislev, 3 1/2 months that had to include all seven campsites! So where was the Klal on Rosh HaShana 2488, the year of entering Eretz Yisrael? They were at the 35th campsite in the desert. That campsite was Punon. It was at Punon that the Klal complained against the Mon (Manna) for being unsubstantial, and poisonous snakes were sent to bite the Klal with venom. Then G-d told Moshe to erect a serpent on a pole so that all who looked upon it would live. And Moshe erected a copper snake on a pole. But wait, why copper? Moshe was not instructed by G-d in the material of the snake: The answer is because the essence of the primordial serpent was chochmah (wisdom) to reign supreme and that chochmah made us into gods. Incidental to this is that the root of the word snake is copper itself. Alas, the yetzer hara, which is most tied to chochmah since the original sin was on Rosh HaShana, is Yavan (or Ion also known as Greece). We see this most clearly in Sefer Daniel when the third kingdom in Nebuachadnezzar's dream, Yavan, is tied to copper. So if this the year when Mashiach ben Yosef arrives or is revealed if he is already here on Zayin Adar, it is a very strong possibility that Yavan will collapse on Rosh HaShana when the copper snake was erected in the midbar (the desert). I guess we will have to wait 72 hours until Motzei Shabbat to find out what happened. If it does not happen, I am sure that HaShem has his way to bring down Yavan before MBY shows up in 5772, G-d willing by Zayin Adar.
I guess I should post this on my blog too. The stock market is going nuts in an upward direction only because Yavan might not go bankrupt or because Yavan's default can be somehow controled. There is no other good news today. All the economic news is horrible. The only news that is driving up the market is the avoidance of collapse. So for the stock market to react in such an irrational way, there has to be a deep seated reason associated with the yetzer hara that could cause all these smart investors to behave like idiots. Think of that: There is no good news today to justify the swing, just the apparent avoidance of the collapse of Western Civilization.
One last thought: Bavel (Babylon or modern Iraq) or (tohu) rose and fell when S. Hussein was hung on the 9th of Tevet 5767 (2007). Persia (Iran) or (bohu) has risen in its place and will only be destroyed in an apocalyptic war with Edom before the coming of Mashiach ben David. Now it is time for the third great empire of world history that occupied the Land of Israel to collapse. Yet, because it is the face of Western Civilization, the West will quickly follow. It will not take years or even months. "And the earth was tohu (chaotic) and bohu (void with something in it), and Darkness (Greece) was on the face of the abyss (Western Civilization)". (Gen. 1:2)
Sorry for any grammatical mistakes at this time. The hour is very late, and I have to be at Slichot early this morning. May everyone who is trying hard to be decent be written and sealed in the Book of Eternal Life!
I will edit this post some more, bli neder after Rosh HaShana. Have a good year, for this is most likely the first full year of the Final Redemption.
