At the End of History

I am still doing research on my post about the Valley of Yehoshafat.  So in the meantime, I believe it is now appropriate to share an email that I shared with a few choice friends a few weeks back in mid-October about what almost assuredly will take place over the next two years.  I won't come out on this blog and say that there is a 100% odds that these things will occur.  So at the end of this post, I will simply quote Daniel in his last chapter about a promise that Gavriel, the Man of G-d dressed in linen told Daniel about what would happen at the end of the last Sabbatical cycle at the End of Days.  Here is the email:

1. The entire world economy will undergo the greatest economic collapse in history by the end of the year 5775 (before Rosh HaShana in September of 2015), less than two years from now.  At that time all debts will be completely erased except our debts to Heaven.  Again this can happen at any time up until September of 2015 but no later than Rosh HaShana during that month.

2. The nations of the world will TRY to force an agreement on the establishment of Palestine and the division of Jerusalem no later than Passover of 5775 which is in April of 2015.  That is, between now (mid-October 5774) and Passover of 5775, the entire world will attempt to send troops against Jerusalem in order to divide it.  The most likely time period for the sending of troops is from Rosh Chodesh Shevat of 5774 (January 1st, 2014) until Passover in 2015.

I am posting this now in order to create the signpost that we have reached the End of pre-Messianic history.  For the last several years starting in 5766, a possibility existed that a Mashiach ben Yoef (Ephraim) figure could arise in Israel that the population would follow and approve of by acclimation.  Because the Am simply is not ready for the prospect of taking on the entire Western World, we have simply limped into the time in history with leadership that has no compunction with brown-nosing the nations of the world in order to 1.be loved or 2. survive the coming onslaught without telling Mankind to "take a hike" with their advice.  It got so bad last year that our listed PM decided that it was fine to release blood-thirsty murderers from jail for nothing except to distract the nations of the world from sending troops last summer and this Fall.  (He basically delayed the inevitable for nine measly months.  9 months...Hmm.)  Today there are basically two powers in the world today: Yishmael and Amalek.  The rest of Edom has basically died the death of old age.  This will be discussed more in the post about the Valley of Yehoshafat.

Daniel 12:5-7-  Then I, Daniel, looked and behold!  Two others are standing, one on this side of the (Nile?) riverbank and one on (the other) side of the riverbank.  One said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the River, "How long until the concealed End?"  I heard the man clothed in linen who above was the waters of the (Nile) River, as he lifted his right hand and his left hand to the Heavens and swore by the Life Source of the Universe that after a period, periods, and a half upon the completion of the fragmenting of the hand of the holy people, all these (things) would be completed.

Good night for now.  I apologize for the double Shmittah cycle since the aerial bombing of Afghanistan began on Hoshana Rabbah 5762, but the Geulah is coming now because we have reached the lowest common denominator and because of our interminable suffering for the last 2000 years.  All purer aspects of Edom don't exist anymore except for Amalek   So the Redemption has to come in order to erase the Desecration of G-d's Name that exists in the world at this time.  Good night..

1:11 Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying: 'Jeremiah, what seest thou?' And I said: 'I see a rod of an almond-tree.'
1:12 Then said the Lord unto me: 'Thou hast well seen; for I watch over My word to perform it.'
1:13 And the word of the Lord came unto me the second time, saying: 'What seest thou?' And I said: 'I see a seething pot; and the face thereof is from the north.'
1:14 Then the Lord said unto me: 'Out of the north the evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land.
1:15 For, lo, I will call all the families of the kingdoms of the north, saith the Lord; and they shall come, and they shall set every one his throne at the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem, and against all the walls thereof round about, and against all the cities of Judah.
1:16 And I will utter My judgments against them touching all their wickedness; in that they have forsaken me, and have offered unto other gods, and worshiped the work of their own hands.
1:17 Thou therefore gird up thy loins, and arise, and speak unto them all that I command thee; be not dismayed at them, lest I dismay thee before them.

4:13 Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion; for I will make thy horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass; and thou shalt beat in pieces many peoples; and thou shalt devote their gain unto the Lord, and their substance unto the L-rd of the whole earth.

How do you think Netanyahu will react to Kerry and Obamas trying to force the dividing of Israel, now that he has been smacked into the reality of their and the worlds open hypocrisy and hatred for Israelis and Israel? He's obviously shocked, insulted and alarmed by how america went about this Iran fiasco.
Liberman and Bennett are making ties with Eastern nations to move away from American dependence. The trade treaty with Russia may even put Russia in a more delicate position, vis a vis protecting their new technological source of goodies.
I think this actually is happening to really wake/shake up the unaffiliated amer Jews and cause them to rethink the liberal lies they have been living.

An article written by Jeffrey Goldberg gives us full insight and understanding to the mindset Kerry and the rest of the delusional morons that support him have.
SOME KEY POINTS
1: Kerry was at his most emotional -- and yes, pro-Israel -- when he described the benefits of peace and when he warned of what would happen to Israel if it continued to settle land that needs to become part of the new state of Palestine for that state to be viable. “Just think of how much more secure Israel would be if it were integrated into a regional security architecture and surrounded by newfound partners,” Kerry said.
2: "The conclusion that I drew from this, and other passages, is that Kerry is so anti-settlement precisely because he is so pro-Israel."
3: Kerry is seeking the Nobel Peace Prize

I would argue that Jeffrey Goldberg is a worst fiend against his own people than John Kerry. He says it in the article. Jews like him throughout the world want "a secure Israel with internationally recognized borders that becomes an honored member of the family of nations, rather than a target of never-ending opprobrium." In short Erev Rav putzes like Goldberg are more concerned about what the world thinks than what G-d thinks. I tell Goldberg, "Seek the love of the nations of the world on your own dime, not on my time. Plus, what type of nation with 'secure borders' has a width of 40 freaking miles which can be split in two! Jeffrey take your freaking popularity doctrine and Go to H-ll! Well that is where you are going anyway, but I thought that I would encourage you along your happy way. And take your ex-Mayor boss with you while you are at it."

Neshama: Netanyahu is reacting badly. He is NOT into the popularity doctrine of the Erev Rav, but because he has so little faith, he is trapped into desiring at least one superpower ally in the world fearing that without it we are doomed. Of course he is sadly misguided, but at least this explains his aberrant, Judenratesqe grotesque behavior. I don't know if he can cure himself of a lack of emunah. All is in the Hands of Heaven except for Fear of Heaven, and Bibi does not have it....as of now.

Everyone have a productive fast and an easy fast tomorrow. From what I can figure out, the tenth of Tevet falls on Friday under two possible scenarios:

1. in a leap year with two Adars when the following Pesach falls on a Tuesday

2. in a regular year with one Adar when the following Pesach falls on a Motzei Shabbat/Sunday.

Condition 2. is rare and only happens about once every ten to twenty years. Condition 1. only happens about 30% of the time during leap years which occur 7 times in every 19 year luni-solar cycle. So the tenth of Tevet falling on Friday is a rare but not extremely rare event. It is the only Fast day besides Yom Kippur which is not pushed back to the previous Thursday when it falls on a Friday or Shabbat.

But recent events are such that this well dressed and clean cut speaker's "message" is resonating and gaining tremendous 'credibility' with an ever expanding number of "low information voters" now assuming majority status in the U.S.A.! Meanwhile, Bibi et al are "deceived" and "furious" [funny - I could have told them what to expect even five years ago!], liberal American Jews worship Obama, and ADL's Abraham Foxman publishes a new article claiming his personal meeting with the Communist terrorist Mandela was one of the highlights of his life!

I should also point out that we are about to have a record blast of Cold from Arctic air pouring down from the north. The deep freeze should set in on Motzei Shabbat. The temperatures will fall here in Yesha to about 12 degrees Fahrenheit. Since we have lived here, I do not recollect the temperatures falling below about 25 degrees Fahrenheit even at times that we have had snow here. So now the temps will fall close to single digits on the Fahrenheit scale!!

Here is a post about the Ba'al Kerry (means both happenstance and cold) and Karcha BaDerekh (since Amaelek cooled us off from Devash on the Ba'al Kerry's 9th Visit

We might see a sign of things to come now that Kerry is here being karch baderekh. As we approach the 2nd of Shevat (Jan. 2-3, 2014), perhaps the world will go nuts. It is the 72nd anniversary of the Wannsee Conference which decided on the methods of the Final Soln. as official Nazi policy. They basically decided on Zyklon B to murder millions at that infamous conference.

This year 72 years later, we should witness the opposite take place as the sun rises on a limping Ya'akov Avinu. The place Peniel with a Yud becomes Penuel with a Vav because the Vav in HaShem's Name shall manifest itself at this time (Gen. 32:32) as the time of the 3rd prisoner release approaches.

Karcha baDerekh is of course the way Amalek (The Ba'al Kerry) "cools us on the way" or "happened upon you on the way" (Deut. 25:17-18). Now he is putting us in the Deep Freeze with a record blast of Arctic air. 12 degrees Fahrenheit in Eretz Yisrael early Sunday morning!! It really never gets that cold here...until now.

Well, I just got a tip from an acquaintance. Today is the tenth of Tevet. The daf Yomi page for the day is Yoma 35. On that page, the Gemorrah relates the famous story of Hillel HaZaqen, during the month of Tevet, lying flat on the roof of the Beit HaMedrash of Avtalyon and Shemaya to drink in the words of Torah being spoken. He was on top of the roof all night long ON EREV SHABBAT listening when 3 amot (five feet) of snow fell on him. They found him the next morning and scraped him off the roof and gave him a place in the Beit HaMedrash in which he could not afford to pay the entrance fee. Yes, Hillel was that poor, but that committed to learning Torah. And I look outside, and it is snowing. five feet of snow in the forecast?? I don't know, but what a Daf for Daf yomi!!

Reb Dov, the weather report from

02WS (otherwise known as Yerushamayim, but today should be called "Yerushasheleg" and have a snowflake in its logo)

says that tonight's low for Yerushalayim will only be 0C/32F and from there it will climb slowly through the coming week. I thought I had read elsewhere that our temps here would be more like you said yours would be by now or later tonight (12F), but I can't find it now and I'm operating on a netstick since my primary ISP is down. I'm wondering where you get your weather reports.

We got more than 50cm (19.5 inches) of snow yesterday and today according to A7 (and if we could have taken pictures this morning, we could prove it, too. Seriously. I can't even imagine how much snow you got.).

Two days ago it said that temps would fall tonight to 12 degrees Fahrenheit. Thank G-d the forecast has moderated. We had enough of a blast of cold air from the Ba'al Kerry. Shavua tov. We did not have electricity for over 24 hours starting around midnight Thursday night. We seem to be back to normal now, bli ayin hara. I think that we received a total of 16 inches (over 40 centimeters) of snow over the course of two nights including over Shabbat.

12/14/2013 7:59 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

My measurement of snowfall in Kochav Yakov was unofficial. We did not have Internet on Friday. So I measured the snow accumulation with a ruler to be 10 inches overnight on Thursday. On Shabbat morning we could not measure even with a ruler since it is prohibited on Shabbat to measure things. So to review, I measured ten inches on Friday morning. And I guestimated another 6 inches of new snow on Shabbat morning after a significant snow melt during the day on Friday.

The one thing that I am taking note of is that the Ba'al Kerry was stonewalled by Abbas on Friday. Abbas basically rejected the Ba'al Kerry's Jordan Valley proposal where Israeli troops would remain for 10 to 15 years. And because of the snowfall his meeting with Netanyahu on the 10th of Tevet was cancelled, Baruch HaShem. So any attempt by the Ba'al Kerry to set up his planned siege against Yerushalayim on Friday was foiled by the snowfall. He could not make it to Bibi's office in time to threaten him with more worldwide isolation on the 10th of Tevet. Being the 10th of Tevet Bibi would have caved as he is apt to do.

We have a neft heater. So on Friday morning I drove to Yerushalayim looking for neft (kerosene). When I made it down the hill from Kochav Yakov, the roads were very clear. So I thought I would have no issues driving to Yerushalayim to find neft. Boy was I wrong. The entire Holy City's road system was a vast parking lot from the goings on the previous day. I spent half the time driving around parked cars on Uzi Narkis and on Begin Expressway just to get my jerrycan filled with neft. Half the gas stations were closed. And the other half did not have neft. By the time I got to Givat Shaul, I made a right turn on Hwy 1, and lo and behold an Egged bus had jackknifed across the oncoming traffic coming from Tel Aviv. I had to turn around and drive in the wrong direction on Hwy 1 just to get back to Yirmiyahu to make a U-turn to get back on Begin. What a nightmare! Did I mention that half the stoplights in Yerushalayim were not working? And at those intersections, NO ONE bothered to stop and look both ways before crossing the street! I felt like I was in a Mad Max movie.

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

The Chassidim and the Sephardi mekubalim differ greatly about how much more suffering the Jewish people will have to do at the end of history. The Chassidim, being from the crucible of pain and suffering, Eastern Europe, say that we have had far more than we can take. The Sephardi mekubalim say yes, but that the lack of common decency cannot be forgiven even because of suffering.

Zecharia HaNavi chap 13 seems to say that 2/3rds of Mankind will not make it through what is coming. 1/3 will make it through. Because of the Shoah, one of the wars of Gog UMagog, 1/3 of world Jewry was snuffed out. Therefore for us to meet our quota of another 1/3, that 1/3 will have to come from somewhere according to the Sephardi mekubalim. Since there were 18 million Jews in the world prior to the Shoah, the 1/3 that survive what will come are already here in Eretz Yisrael. Or somehow the Erev Rav and the non-repentant sinners here in Eretz Yisrael will be weeded out and replaced with faithful Jews in Chu"l. There is another opinion that only 1/3 of the Jews won't make it, and they already died in the Shoah. Based on that every Jew will be brought out of galut and brought back to Eretz Yisrael, everyone that survives what is coming IN THE INTERIM! I will not hazard a guess who is right, the Ashkenazi Chassidim or the Sephardi mekubalim. We will have to wait and see, but it is better or preferable to wait here in EY than there if the opportunity avails itself. If for some reason it does not, remember the primary avodah of this final test, WW3 or the 3rd great war of Gog UMagog, is bechol me'odecha (with all your possessions or money). If one is willing to forego one's 401K, one can increase his/her chances of survival by storing food in a country location with a group of like-minded ARMED people as spoken about at length on this blog and on the MPaths blog.

The tombstone was not done by a qualified chiseler. That is for sure. Perhaps it was chiseled by a family member. Where precisely was this tombstone found?

Vendyl Jones always claimed that the 5 Sin cities of the Plain/ Valley of Sidim were at the northern tip of the Dead Sea. Har Nevo was also at the northern tip overlooking Arvot Mo'av, Eiver HaYarden. This would at least partially explain the p'shat of that being the last place that Moshe saw before he died. Also when both Avraham and Lot were tending sheep on the outskirts of the area close to Beit El and Ai, Lot saw the 5 cities when he chose to go to them. The lookout point is at a place called Eretz Bereishit today, and one can only see the northern tip of the Dead Sea from there. These were some of Vendyl's arguments. Yet, this tombstone was found near the southern tip of the Dead Sea?

Good for Savage. He must have seen Sheldon Adelson suggest the same idea about unleashing one nuclear device in a Persian desert near Tehran. But with Obama, it won't be happening...until at least this Spring or next Fall, early 5775 when the King of Arabia has had enough and threatens to use his newly acquired Pakistani nuclear device in a similar fashion on a Persian desert. Upon being told that the Saudis are about to explode a nuclear device, Obama might consider doing something.

I also saw R Yuval Ovadia's cinematic presentation, most of which I had learned about. However, when he comes real close to our days things get fuzzy. He used a scenes from a video of missiles devastating the US. I find that skeptical, because if there is that much damage. The likelihood of cleanup would be astronomical. Think of the twin towers. Only many many more years.

Plus there was no mention of creating achdus between our fractured people. Unless I missed it. he focused mainly on Halacha.

I believe the final purification comes at the end of the 7th Mil, when HaShem gives us (those who make it this far) back our skin of kesonas Ohr, what we had in Gan Eden.

World Net Daily: “Secretary of State John Kerry quietly presented a U.S. plan for eastern Jerusalem that calls for an international administrative mandate to control holy sites in the area, according to informed Palestinian and Israeli diplomatic sources.

The exact composition of the international mandate is up for discussion, the sources said, but Kerry’s plan recommended a coalition that includes the Vatican, together with a group of Muslim countries such as Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

The international arrangement is being proposed as a temporary solution for about two to three years while security arrangements in Jerusalem between Israelis and Palestinians are finalized, said the sources.”

Lesson on Section 1.5
The Spiritual Realm



Torah.org commentary
Expanded Footnotes
Judaism 101 Sidebars
PDF format
Discussion Board

Introduction

One chapter of a book certainly cannot address the complexity of the "spiritual realm." Ramchal gives a brief overview of certain fundamentals, some of which he will elaborate on in further chapters. We will offer some additional insight at this time and more later in the study.

1.5.1

Ramchal first addresses the physical world, noting that there are both terrestrial and celestial bodies. His words are similar to those of Paul’s:

1 Corinthians 15:39-41 - All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of animals, another of fish, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies; but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory.

Dust and Ashes in the Wind? On Torah.org?

Rav Pinchus Winston likes catchy Torah subjects. Plus Dust in the Wind is true for bodies made of flesh and blood, rather than bodies of light. The rock group Kansas was correct about their observation of the physical world. Read Unetanah Tokef from the Rosh HaShana service to see the exact same thing.

Back in the year 1999, Rav Winston had a dvar Torah about Y2K and the coming computer crashes because of the two digit date reset to 00. Binary code for Windows 95 did not include all four digits of the Year 2000. So Rav Winston noticed that the wrestling match with the angel of Esav was at the Yavok Brook. Yavok is Yud Bet Koof which is Y2K. If you press him, he would admit that the Koof should be transliterated as a Q not a K, but it is at least the same sound. The idea of course is that this wrestling match was supposed to last 2000 years.

The great spiritual oppression of Edom and the Erev Rav will likely be over in four more months. This is true not because of our own merits and not because we have resisted the onslaught. It is true because of our interminable suffering for the last 2500 years. It is different in 5774. In 5773 we needed to resist the demands of the nations of the world. Our chosen head of the Judenrat, Bibi, was not up to that task. So now they are coming after us in 5774, and there is no way to stop their coming. They are Hell-bent on showing up here this coming Nisan/ Iyar. There will be no way to stop them now. Get right with G-d and he will fight our battle for us, and we will be silent. Amaleq is coming from the Western/ Yafetic nations. The Palestinians are Ammon and Moav according to the Targum Yonatan. Look at who invades during the reign of Yehoshafat in Divrei HaYamim Bet chapter 20 during the reign of Yehoshafat, King of Yehudah. They will kill each other off in the Valley of Yehoshafat....And they are coming this Nisan if the Ba'al Kerry's nine month dating holds up.

Divrei HaYamim Bet is of course 2nd Chronicles. Then read and study chapter 20. A flash might go off in your head when you see who are the combatants in that battle.

Water Supply Soars Following Snow Storm

Along with damage and road closures, the rare weekend snow storm brought an answer to possible drought. The Water Authority welcomed the large quantities of precipitation stating rivers and streams are flowing in the highest levels in 50 years. Dr. Amir Givati of the Water Authority told Arutz Sheva news on Wednesday, "records were broken in so many places. It hasn't been like this for decades."

He said that the Sea of ​​Galilee (Lake Kineret) has risen four inches and will rise further after the final bits of snow and ice melt. "In addition to the damage and difficulties there's also a lot of blessing," he said.

EU warns Israel over settlement construction

Senior European Union members warned Israel Monday that it will be held responsible for the failure of peace talks with the Palestinians if it announces the construction of new settlement housing.

It is a veiled threat. Israel is expected to cut itself in half and provide the entire West Bank (Judea and Samaria) as Jew-free states.

Imagine the Temple Mount as part of an Arab-controlled state and a corridor from Judea to Gaza that would preclude any Israeli presence.

Global pressure is mounting and the eventual collapse of these most ridiculous peace talks could be the catalyst for the start of the Psalm 83 war.

Yes, Neshama, it appears that the Battle to Divide Yerushalayim is in 5774, and the World War between Persia and the West is in the Shmittah year, 5775, to punish those nations that showed up this year to divide Eretz Yisrael. It is the very very End as this post suggests. No one seeking money for their institutions can enable another travesty and therefore delay this until the next Shmittah cycle. The reshayim have already had their say. It is too bad that we will have needed a double Shmittah cycle to accomplish this when the Gog ben Gog Shmittah cycle should have been enough. These last 14 years starting in 5761 with the Al Aksa Intifada have been extremely hard and difficult as it is. And we are approaching the end of this insanity which really started with the Oslo Accords, but it was bound to end sometime.

Don't think so. There is a great miracle in the offing that is wrapped up in the Geulah Shleimah which will occur during Sukkot 5775 or 5776. The time of our Joy has been waiting for this event for over 3300 years. True, we were redeemed during Pesach. So Pesach in the near future, we will be redeemed a 2nd time, but Pesach is only the beginning. It seems that the splitting of the Mt. of Olives is an event that has been waiting to occur during Sukkot 5775 or 5776. Zech. 14, written 2500 years ago, has been the haftarah for Sukkot for at least 2000 years. Even the 10 plagues took place over a period of either 7 or 10 months. Plus even if the Final Geulah b'itah begins in the 6th year of this Shmittah cycle, we are promised in our davening that the Shmittah year will also be a year of Geulah. The 7th bracha of Shmonah Esrei is Go'el Yisrael. And the Gemorrah in Sanhedrin tells us that the 7th year WILL be the year of the last great war b'itah.

Also while the world is focused on Eretz Yisrael and Persia, keep an eye on the nation at the edge of the known time zones, North Korea. Seoul, South Korea emerges from the twilight zone in 5775 to enter Yom SheKulo Shabbat. And we all should know what that means. Koreas in the Twilight Zone The Zohar in VaEira nicely ties a 3 month war with North Korea, and the L-rd having a sacrifice in Batzrah, Iraq. Never forget that North Korea and Persia are very close allies. It is a mistake to assume that Persia needs to produce more nuclear material. They can simply procure it from N. Korea. All the Persians really need to work on right now is delivery systems that can deliver a nuke payload.

Also the Splitting of the Mt. of Olives in Zech. 14 will likely occur during Sukkot 5775 before the great World War with Persia because Zech. 14 describes the splitting of the Mt. of Olives before it describes the effect of nuclear blasts on the human body (Zech. 14:12) as being the punishment that will come on those nations that come up against Jerusalem. So since the last great war will be in the Shmittah year itself, the Splitting of the Mt. of Olives has to immediately precede it....most likely this coming Fall.

One last little secret. After the conclusion of the wrestling match with the Angel of Esav which concluded at Alot HaShachar, 72 minutes before sunrise, Ya'akov named the place where the match took place as Peni'el (with a Yud). In the very next pasuk at sunrise the Torah names the place Penu'el with a Vav. Keep an eye on this coming prisoner release, the 3rd group of 26 murderers, most likely after the gentile New Year on the heels of the 2nd of Shevat.

For sure, LondonMale. Please send me your info to my email address. I agree with you that osteopaths have a major advantage over Orthopedists. Osteopaths are magnificent at treating the entire body as a unit. They understand that we were created whole and not just with one body part at a time. They also understand the inter-connective tissue system as a unit and treat it as such. Orthopedists are not trained in treating the entire body as one unit.

Thank you Rav Dov.
This article by Rabbi Simon Jacobson was on the Shirat Devorah website and is about Parhas Balak. It talks about how sometimes the soul protects itself by allowing painful emotions to be stored in the body rather than being constantly felt in the conscious soul, to be released at a time when the soul feels safe to release them. Something that is related to Osteopathy.
Not quite sure how it all relates to Geulah but with Osteopathy being founded in 1874 by Dr. Andrew Still, it might have been one of the scattered sparks of wisdom that needed to be revealed before the Geulah?

This is a comment that I made on Ya'ak's blog which should clarify the points in this particular post:

There really is not a lot of wiggle room left in this Shmittah cycle. The War between Persia and the West is supposed to last a full year according to Medrash Sefer Eliyahu, and The Talmud is clear that that war takes place in the Shmittah year. Zecharia 14 tells us that the nuclear bomb effects on the human body take place as a punishment for the nations that come up against Yerushalayim prior to that war, and we read that haftarah on Sukkkot because the Mt. of Olives will split in two during Sukkot, maybe on the first day of Sukkot too. This means that the all out attempt to divide Yerushalayim must take place in the 6th year, 5774 in order to trigger the punishments in the 7th year. The only question to be answered is did the nine months b'Poal begin during Av 5773 to end on this Pesach b'Rachamim? Or will the nine months begin during Shevat (January) and end in Sukkot 5775 b'Din? Unless I am reading these possibilities incorrectly, there are really no other options for this Shmittah cycle. And since this is the last possible pre-Messianic Shmittah cycle, we have arrived.

The Gemara in Gittin 58a tells the story of how Rabbi Yehoshua ben Chananya heard that there was a Jewish child in a Roman jail, and he went and stood at the door of the jailhouse and called out the posuk (Yishaya 42:44), “Who made Yaakov downtrodden and left Israel to the plunderers?” The child answered him with the end of the posuk, “Is it not Hashem, against whom we have sinned; they refused to walk in His ways and did not listen to His Torah.”

This means that they refused to be guided by Hashem’s providence, but instead sought their own methods of protection. And today? Were are we?

Devorah wrote on 19.8.13

I will assemble you from the nations and gather you in from the lands where you have been scattered, and give you the Land of Israel. They will come there and remove all its detestations and all its abomination from it. I will give them an undivided heart and I will place a new spirit in them; I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh so that they may walk in My decrees and observe My laws and fulfill them. Then they will be a people unto Me, and I will be a G-d for them. But those whose heart follows the heart of their detestations and abomination. I will place their way upon their head --- the word of the Lord Hashem/Elokim. (Yechezkel 11:12-21)

The last pasuk is a qualifier which lets us know that not everyone will receive this new spirit. At the end of days, there will still be those who choose to go their own rebellious way and their end will be like that of the sinners of Yechezkel's own time---"I will place their way upon their head." Why then should we not imagine that the protection of the righteous will also follow the same pattern? Perhaps the following describes the defining event which separates between the righteous and the sinner:

Behold, I send you Elijah the Prophet before the coming of the great and awesome day of Hashem. And he will turn back [to G-d] the hearts of the fathers with [their] sons and the hearts of sons with their fathers [for fear that] I come and strike the land with utter destruction. (Malachi 3:23-24)

This change of heart will 'mark' the righteous---the non-rebel---for survival. It is well-known that both Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach and also the Lubavitcher Rebbe were instrumental to the teshuva movement which has brought untold numbers of Jews back to the path of observance. And further to that are the Discovery programs of Aish HaTorah and the personal endeavors of many unnamed rabbis all of whom together have functioned in the spirit of Eliyahu HaNavi. If so, then how short the time must be.

We do not look forward to the destruction that we know is hurtling toward us like a runaway freight train, any more than a woman looks forward to many hours of grueling labor in the effort to birth her child. But we anticipate the bliss on the other side of that event and hope to survive to see it just as the mother looks past the pain to the moment that she will embrace her child.

I would say the same about paying parking tickets and traffic violations where one really did nothing wrong, but the state entrapped you in order to make some bucks off you. Delay paying the tickets until the end of the summer 2014. Let the corrupt state die its death, and then we will be free.

Me'ir: You assume that there is destruction headed our way. LeHefech, the opposite is true. Ammon and Moav (The Palestinians) will end up killing the forces of Amalek that come, and then Bnai Ammon and the Moavites will start to kill each other. We will watch and be silent.

I have never been so calm in all my life as I am right now because like Chezkiyahu HaMelekh who went to sleep when an army of 185,000 Assyrians besieged Yerushalayim, I believe that this will be the days that the L-rd has made to pour out His Glory on the world in order to sanctify His Name.

I end with this as a word of solace: To drive home the point, the Torah changes Yakov's name for Peni'el to Penu'el with a Vav, the place where he wrestled with the Angel of Edom and won. Yakov had named the spot Peni'el, but at sunrise the Torah changes the name to Penu'el. He was smacked in the thigh vein at the end of the long night at Alot HaShachar, 72 minutes before sunrise. On the 2nd of Shevat 5774 (Jan. 2nd/3rd, 2014), we will commemorate the 72nd anniversary of the Wannsee Conference, the meeting which determined the the methods for carrying out the Final Solution which set the genocidal program into full motion. We will then see how the Vav in HaShem's Name, the Yud Key Vav, manifests itself in the world when the 3rd group of 26 savages are released from jail...in exchange for Yehonatan Pollard? I don't know.

Yes, Netanyahu is "under siege" as the City in which he governs is also under siege, but that siege seems to have begun right after Tisha B'Av. He and his cohorts have willingly dehumanized themselves by releasing murderous thugs from jail in order to keep the siege as a spiritual reality without the tanks on the ground. So we are far more advanced in this process than we can imagine.

Media reports indicate Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has already agreed in secret with US Secretary of State John Kelly that Israel will maintain control of the Jordan Valley for an additional 10-15 years. After that time period IDF soldiers will be replaced with PA forces, amid PA assurances of free passage for Israeli citizens.

OK, with an assault by Kerry against Yehudah and Shomron looming, the US dollar is plunging again. It is down to 3.48 today. A friend of mine told me that it would be best for everyone if the dollar were to suddenly collapse in dramatic fashion, rather than lingering above 3.30. The wealthy exporters would squash their small business competition at that level. Yet, if the dollar crashed to 2.6 in a very short period of time, the entire slimy wicked system would collapse overnight.

The Times Of Israel: “Israel insists on retaining a military presence on the Jordanian border, giving the narrow country some strategic depth and early warning on its eastern frontier, and has rejected a previous American proposal to place an international force there.

Channel 10 revealed last week that the Palestinian negotiating team had rejected an American peace plan that would involve an Israeli military presence along the Jordan Valley highway, located five kilometers (three miles) from the Jordanian border, after the establishment of a future Palestinian state.”

Opinion: Mahmoud Abbas will not agree to having even one Israeli remaining in the proposed state of Palestine. Not one. John Kerry, instead of informing the thug-o-cracy that since Israel has been under constant attack by Abbas’ henchmen for almost 66 years, Israel’s security would necessitate border guards at the strategic Jordan valley crossing.

Kerry has virtually agreed to a Jew-free state by offering American security.

Pandering and appeasement are the hallmarks of these ridiculous peace talks; meanwhile just southeast of the West Bank, Hamas is working on lengthening the range of their rockets to try and inflict as much violence as possible deep into Israel.

BTW, the Arab word for violence is chamas … pronounced Hamas.

1. The Israeli Prime Minister for foreign and even domestic security since Av 5773 has been Barack Obama/ John Kerry.

Here is proof. Kerry has decided that there is going to be an express train between Hevron and Gaza across the Shefeilah which supposedly is within Israel's internationally recognized borders. In order to order that, Kerry must be the Prime Minister. So it is the Ba'al Kerry releasing prisoners, not Netanyahu. He is just a smiling figurehead right now.

Choo Choo Train to Gaza

2. And notice that the Ba'al Kerry has decided that there will be Western troops, most likely NATO troops, in the Jordan Valley. I know that the Debka story says US troops, but this will evolve into NATO/ Russian troops since America is broke and has no inclination to send troops for this type of expedition.

Storms cut power in US and Canada
Ice storm hits Canada Watch

More than 500,000 households in the north-eastern US and the south-eastern Canada are still without electricity after last weekend's severe ice storm.

Utility crews are working round-the-clock, but warn that some homes could be without power at least until Saturday.

In Toronto, 72,000 people were without electricity on Christmas Day, officials in Canada's Ontario province said.

At least 27 deaths in the region have been linked to the storm.

Most of those were caused by apparent carbon monoxide poisoning as people used gas generators, charcoal stoves and other appliances to heat their homes in freezing temperatures.

"I understand they want to keep warm, but you cannot do this. This is deadly," Toronto Mayor Rob Ford warned earlier this week.

Other fatalities were caused by traffic accidents.

Elsewhere in Canada, tens of thousands of people are still without power in New Brunswick and Quebec, and hundreds in Nova Scotia.

In the US, states from Maine to Michigan have been affected by the adverse weather.

Travel between between Toronto and Montreal, Ottawa and New York had been disrupted.

Environment Canada meteorologist David Phillips warned earlier this week that the ice would remain as temperatures stayed below freezing.

"There's no natural melting going on," he said.

"It's going to be human effort and endeavour that will get rid of the sheath of ice that's covering eastern Canada."

re: "Wall Street advisor recommends guns, ammo for protection in collapse"
Can't wait to see this "advisor" take off with his "bug out bag", wads of cash, and firearms. Banks/ATM's will all be closed. Grocery shelves all stripped bare. No electricity means no water pumping, no fuel pumping, no wireless service. No more deliveries. Each and every highway,thoroughfare, and backroad will be completely blocked by the thousands of "prepper/survivalists" all hitting the roads at once with their bags of cash and guns in tow. A huge riotous free for all as lack of traffic supervision inevitably results in fender benders, ditched vehicles, and the inevitable shootouts as panicky motorists react to shouted profanities arising at the slightest "hint" of being "dissed" or run off the road. Those who do "get through" will only find themselves confronted by large violent mobs, armed to the teeth, gesturing for everyone to "turn around" and "go back where you came from 'cos'n you ain't wanted here!" That, of course, only if all the players involved are decent, courteous, and well bred. Otherwise, summary highway robbery, rape, and murder are the order of the day for the lucky "Wall Street Advisor" and his followers. What's that, you say? If they're all "frum' they'll hopefully make it to the "frum" survival camps smack dab in the middle of Aryan Nations/KKK territory where they can "wait it out" for Moshiach? Sounds like a plan!

CDG: Yes, I see that, and you are right. We will have to wait and see what awaits after the third release. There are no political solutions to our situation. Our only ally in bringing the Geulah will be G-d Himself. He will be the One to pull the levers after the 3rd prisoner release. Next week along with being the 3rd prisoner release is also the 72nd anniversary of the Wannsee Conference on the 2nd of Shevat 5702. The 2nd of Shevat this year is next Friday, Jan. 3rd, 2014. It is the Penu'el event of sunrise 72 minutes after the thigh vein was injured (corresponding to The Final Soln. during the Shoah) during the wrestling match. We should see something within 2 weeks of that formidable anniversary. Yet, the Vav prisoner release will control all Geulah events until the 4th release. What will those events be? We don't know for sure at this time. Right now, we are Kotzer Ru'ach, short of breath because our chances from a logical perspective look dimmer and dimmer. Yet, HaShem has a plan of tremendous Rachamim on Klal Yisrael planned for this Spring. The Name HaShem is 4 letters with a gematriah of 26, and it always denotes Rachamim on Klal Yisrael. The fact that there are 4 releases with 26 prisoners each should calm our nerves that whatever happens will be with tremendous Rachamim.

As far as Ya'akov Peri yemach shmo, I have learned to care less what garbage like him thinks. If I concerned myself with what human debris thinks about anything, I would be ready to explode at a moment's notice. So I leave the curse against Malshinim in G-d's Hands.

Just think, what are the odds that Israel against its better judgement would start to release in four spurts 26 murderers for each spurt? Who came up with the number 26, and why is this being done 4 times? This is NOT natural in any sense of the word. So the One whose gematriah is 26 and whose Eternal Name has 4 letters must be directing the show from a very High level. If this were going to be a case of Divine punishment on Klal Yisrael, the Name would be Elokim (gematriah 86) with 5 such releases because the Name Elokim has five letters, not four. I think that is coming on the nations of the world between now and Sukkot, but whatever happens by Pesach has HaShem written all over it.

I am davening everyday for Moshiach and doing other mitzvos that Hashem should see that I am serious about his arrival- that klal Yisroel needs him to come.
I find it incredible that the release of murderers are within the gematrias framework and all of it's nuances. It is so painful to know that those who had family members murdered must go through more suffering and anger because of the lack of intestinal fortitude of others.
Klal Yisroel has traveled and travailed for so long. I do believe that in this generation we will see Moshiach's arrival.

On Shabbat, the issue of anti-Semitism was thrust into the headlines in the UK.

Nicholas Anelka, the West Bromwich Albion and France national side football player (soccer), made the "Quenelle" after scoring a goal.

This hand gesture used by French anti-Semitic comedian Dieudonne had been in the French headlines anyway, with the government there considering banning it. Anelka's gesture brought the controversy to the UK, and to the world of football.
He is a very high profile player in the world of football, and has been for some time.

For those not familiar with Dieudonne, I suggest reading his Wikipedia entry it is particularly sordid. One wonders if he is the re-incarnation of Rosenberg or Streicher.

Anelka claimed he was merely supporting a friend under pressure, but that can be no justification.
The French Jewish population suffers terribly from hate crimes.

The issue of anti-Semitism in English football has been in the public eye for a year or so, with controversy over the use of the word "Yid" by both Jewish and non-Jewish fans, sometimes as a hate word, other times as a chant of Jewish pride or simply an identification as supporters of Tottenham Hotspur, regardless of the religion of the fans singing it.

So why does the final Redemption begin with the Yud Key Vav? Well here is an insight. Yishmael and Edom unlike the ancient Egyptians are descendants of both Avraham and Yitzchak. Avram became Avraham by adding a Hey from HaShem's Name and Yitzchak was given a Yud from HaShem's Name at birth. Since both Yishmael and Edom are "blessed" with these two letters from HaShem's Name, the Geulah cannot fully begin with just the first two letters of HaShem's Name. The Vav is different. When Esav is on top as in the 6 years of the Shoah, he rules because of the Vav in his name, but at the end of history Ya'akov with a Vav wins as in Zakharti eth briti Ya'akov which is the one time in the entire Torah where Ya'akov's name is spelled with a Vav. We seem to have arrived at that moment by the end of this week, 72 years (or 72 minutes) after the Final Solution. What HaShem has in store after the 3rd (Yud Key Vav) prisoner release? no way of knowing for sure.

Turkish Stocks, Bonds, Lira Collapse!

It is important to remember that on April 28, 2013 Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan snubbed Israeli PM Netanyahu’s forced apology over the Mavi Marva Flotilla incident that has destroyed Turkish/Israeli relations.

Genesis 12:3 warns of judgment on those who curse Israel and that Turkey’s leader was on dangerous ground.

Says Saxo Bank in predictions for 2014: ‘FRAGILE FIVE’ TO FALL 25% AGAINST THE USD

The expected tapering of quantitative easing in the US will lead to higher marginal costs of capital from rising interest rates. This will leave countries with expanding current account deficits exposed to a deteriorating risk appetite on the part of global investors, which could ultimately force a move lower in their currencies, especially against the US dollar. We have put five countries into this category − Brazil, India, South Africa, Indonesia and Turkey.

(Turkey is the first to feel this impact as its political crisis unfolds this week. This looks a logical view, and far from outrageous.)

Two charedi Members of Knesset recently made comments that people should know about.

Meir Porush, of United Torah Judaism, was interviewed about the electoral fraud in Bet Shemesh. One of the biggest cases was discovered by authorities due to their being tipped-off by someone in the charedi community. Porush's response was to condemn people who report such things to the police.

Meanwhile Yisrael Eichler, also of United Torah Judaism, spoke about the efforts to counter the new Israeli government's policies regarding charedim. He stated that "If the government continues with its gezeiros, international human rights organizations will demand an investigation over the discriminatory policies and question how in a prospering nation over 800,000 children are living in poverty." In other words, it's the government's fault that charedim live in poverty.

I also believe that the time for getting Pollard released is after the 3rd prisoner release but before the 4th one since that is the time span for the Vav in HaShem's Name to be manifest on the world. Once Pollard is released the 4th prisoner release will take place. This is just my hunch based on the subject matter that has been discussed on this blog. What else will happen after the 3rd prisoner release is unknown since we are entering uncharted territory. The Yud Key in HaShem's Name has been separated from the Vav Key in His Name since the Exodus from Mitzraim and the first war with Amaleq before the Giving of the Torah.

If this wording above of Netanyahu's statement is accurate as written, with the 'comma' separating the second and third "interests" which must be addressed, then in terms of legal language the P.M. is saying that Israel fully intends to give up and over to the PLO areas of Israel's land as part of a "deal".

I would not be as upset if Netanyahu and his minions had simply chosen a route to dehumanize themselves by groveling before the Ba'al Kerry. But they found a way by releasing these 78 murderers in the last 6 months to dehumanize all those whom these monsters murdered. They have dehumanized all Jews who live in Israel. It is now perfectly fine to murder us, to murder our wives and our children, as long as it is being done as a war of national liberation by the Ammonites and the Moavites that live in our midst. laylah tov...It is raining.

Rabbi Dov,

I share your outrage. I fully expected all of these events, and am looking forward to more egregious ones to follow in rapid succession. Please share if you will your opinions on a book I read several years ago entitled

"THE RAINBOW SWASTIKA"
A REPORT TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE ABOUT NEW AGE ANTISEMITISM by Hannah Newman.

http://philologos.org/__eb-trs/

I've never known much about it but always considered most of the information discussed in it to be true. The book presents a vivid and thorough expose of the NGO's, Foundations, Coalitions, and all the key players involved in the undermining of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. Whatever the author's source of information and purpose, world events of the past twenty years have certainly seemed less puzzling to me after reading it. If not already familiar with it please do give it a read and share your thoughts.

US deal will trade off ‘Jewish’ Israel for 1967 lines

The Times Of Israel: “Secretary of State John Kerry will offer Israeli and Palestinian negotiators a political trade-off: Israeli recognition of the 1967 lines as a basis for the future Palestinian state, in return for Palestinian recognition of Israel as the state of the Jewish people, Palestinian sources told the Saudi daily Al-Watan on Sunday.

Kerry is to visit the region later this week and is expected to present the sides with the framework plan, which is meant to keep peace talks alive.”

Opinion: John Kerry is desperate for a legacy - regardless of the cost. After losing the 2004 election to George Bush, he worked tirelessly to become Secretary of State.

The entire progressive left world will support the move to give back the lands that were recovered in the 1967 war. It is their battle cry despite the fact that no nation has ever given back land taken in a defensive war.

But more importantly, dividing the land, violates God’s word.

Ezekiel 35:24 “For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land.”

Amos 9:14-15 “They will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit. I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them restoration to the land.”

Joel 3:2 “I will gather all nations I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up My land.”

The judgment upon the nations that divide the land are harsh . Israel has had no peace since the Gaza ‘land for peace’ deal and America has been at war for over a decade as well. Leaders who divide the land do not escape judgment.

I cannot predict when moshiach will be revealed but i can predict how. The torah gives clues where the garden of eden was and also where the original place of the tabernacle was in shilo. We know shechm is close to mount gerizim and also bet el and ai are close since we are told shilo is north of bet el on the east side on the road to shehm in the book of judges. We know abraham first worshipped at shechm and moved his tent between bet el and ai to worship there. Jacob built a pillar and placed a stone on the pillar and claimed this is bet el or house of god. Clearly the place was chosen snd recognised as.the original garden of eden by these men. Now when moses instructed joshua to make blessings and curses on ebal and gerizim he gave strict instructions. Since how were they to know which mountains are these. He said from the galgal go west towards the setting of the sun. So where is the galgal. Meaning circles or wheels. It is called gilgal rephaim today and is in the golan heights above the kineret. This was the circle made from jacob to mark the boundary between laban his father in law and israel. So when we go west we come to mount meron and miraculously we find jacobs pillar of bet el called today chair of elijah. North of this we find above grave of bar yochai a place which i beleieve is shechm and east of this road we find grave of shammai which i beleive is shilo according to the book of judges. Now in joshua 25 he places a large stone in shilo to mark the place of the tabernacle and serve as a witness to the people. On the shammai tomb there is a great stone too large for any man to carry especially the followers of shammai. Moshiach will speak with god through the tree of life which is the same burning bush that moses spoke with god on mount meron and god will.reveal to him where the priests hid the tabrrnacle with the ark and menorah and table and manna and rod of aaron and ephod and ummim and thummim. The world will be shocked and christinanity will colllapse since jesus came from judah and recognised jerusalem as the chosen place. Religion jews will be shocked and hate moshiach at first but slowly recognise their ancestors were sinners and it was all part of gods plan to keep his holy mountain pure. Islam will collapse too for these same reasons. The presence of god will fill the tabernacle like the days of moses and everything will be restored. If we resd the final poem of god and moses in deuteronomy it is clear that god hid his face(presence) as soon as the people worshiped other gods after joshua in the book of judges it was during this time that the priests hid the tabernacle . As jacob prophecised about his sons. The kingship and the lawgiver shall not depart from judah until shilo comes which is rhe tabernacle which moses made. Then joseph will be given his birthright which judah stole from him like the story in egypt where everyone thought joseph was dead.and he came out to be king over his brothers in egypt. Joseph had two dreams ruling over his brothers the first was fullfilled in egypt and the second is moshiach.

Facebook censorship

Every time I try to post "sensitive" material on our politicians' Facebook pages it doesn't take more than a couple of minutes before Facebook blocks my account. This has happened to me at least 10 times, after I open a new account. Obvious is that someone is complaining to Facebook or Facebook has a political censorship. This morning I posted about US “framework” calls for 80,000 Israeli West Bank evacuations to the big settlement blocs.

Frightening that opinions are oppressed in this way. The only way for me to regain my account at Facebook is to reveal my cell phone number to them which I of course am not willing to do.

"The trend in the shekel-dollar rate has not always matched the global trend in the dollar, with the rate oscillating between stagnation and decline for most of 2013. In 2014 too, the dollar exchange rate will continue to be a headache for decision makers at the Bank of Israel and in the government. The NIS 3.47-3.50/$ range currently represents a support range. Unless the Bank of Israel manages to defend it, the rate is liable to drop to levels that will be a significant threat to exports and to the entire Israeli economy."

The dollar will come back against the Euro and the Yen because they are no less stressed out because of massive debt and printing money like the dollar. The dollar will NOT be coming back against the Shekel. As soon as interest rates pick up just a little bit in the US, all that printed money that is in foreign investments will pour back into the US overnight resulting in hyperinflation. I don't know precisely at which point the Fed is forced to taper the Quantitative Easing of 85 billion dollars of free money every month, but when the Fed finally does that, interest rates will creep up. G-d willing it will be soon.

China's Liquidity Crisis Worsens As Fed Vs PBOC "Taper" Wars Escalate

While global currency wars have esclataed over the last 4 years (as we noted here), the potential return to fund outflows triggered by the Fed taper, combined with higher demand for funds ahead of Chinese New Year, means there will be continued pressure for China’s money market rates to stay high heading into January.

China bans journalists from writing about its $24 trillion debt bubble the biggest in history

The Financial Times reports that China has banned journalists from writing pessimistic articles about its economy, the latest in a desperate effort to prevent the $24 trillion Chinese debt mountain from imploding as local interest rates skyrocket.

Blame the Fed for its reduction of QE money printing last week. The three-month Chinese Shibor interest rate is up 80 points to 5.5 per cent over the past month. This is a credit squeeze as hot money is pouring out of China.

Is China going to oust the United States as the world’s superpower? Is China really ready to rule the world?

China is a sleeping lion, Napoleon once warned. “Let her sleep, for when she wakes she will shake the world.” Nearly two centuries later, this lion is not only awake, but roaring.

The United States remains at the centre of the current global economic order. It is the leader in designing and enforcing its rules; the dollar is the cornerstone of the international monetary system; and the United States’ supremacy underpins the three institutions (the IMF, the WTO and the World Bank) that help to maintain order in the international economic system.

China and Israel according to the Bible.

In a prophecy recorded in Daniel 11, a clash is foretold between “the king of the north,” a German-led European power, and “the king of the south,” a radical Islamic power led by Iran.

Emerging victorious, the European army is then prophesied to conquer the tiny Jewish nation now called Israel. At that point, verse 44 foretells, “tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble” this European king.

Any map will show that north and east of Jerusalem are Russia and China, the two dominant powers of the land biblically referred to as Magog!

One of the seven sons of Japheth bears special importance to the prophetic identity of the Chinese and even their nomadic neighbors. That is Magog, the second son of Japheth mentioned in Genesis 10:2.

Jewish historian Josephus indicates where Magog’s descendants settled. He wrote in the first century, “Magog founded those that from him were named Magogites, but who are by the Greeks called Scythians” (The Complete Works of Josephus).

In a prophecy in Ezekiel 38, the Bible labels this vast territory of northern Eurasia where the Scyths lived—a region that stretched from the Russian steppes east into modern-day China and Mongolia—as Magog.

While the Mongols’ connection to Magog is most obvious, they were just one tribe of a related people that carry the biblical name Magog. Ezekiel 38 is a prophecy about the land of Magog and all the distant “cousins” that live there and are associated with each other, such as the Russians and Chinese. One of the Mongolic nomadic tribes in this area bears a special relationship with China. They are the Khitan, a people responsible for China’s modern name and one of China’s biblical names, Chittim.

Isaiah 23:1 has a prophecy about “the land of Chittim.” To which modern nation does this end-time prophecy apply? This biblical name refers to both the island of Cyprus and to the nation of China, whose progenitors first populated Cyprus and gave it its name.

Jewish historian Josephus records that some descendants of Japheth—such as the families of Gomer, Tubal and Togarmah—first settled in southern Europe before migrating east into Asia. Kittim was one such family, originally settling lands to the west of Mesopotamia before moving to the Far East.

12/31/2013 6:54 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Me'ir I can't post the comment which quotes the King James version of the Bible as it says. But to be short, the Kittim are NOT Chinese. China is Sin a Cana'anite nation that did not settle in Eretz Yisrael. The Bnai Sin went to the Far East. Yes, the Mongols are Magog, and they eventually invaded Sin about 900 years ago by coming through the Great Wall of China about 100 years before Marco Polo showed up.

The Mongols also had tribes in the SW United States, the Apache and the Navajo. I wrote extensively about this when I wrote about Gog Bush Sr. and Gog ben Gog Bush. Their father Prescott stole the skull of Geronimo, the Apache medicine man that gave the US Cavalry fits, from his burial spot in Fort Sill, Oklahoma back around 1917 or 1918 while training to be a soldier in WW1. It got him inducted into the Skull and Bones Society and catapulted his son and grandson to the Presidency of the US. His son Gog Sr. had the name Magog as an initiate into the secret society because his father had proven himself to be master of the conquered Magogite people in SW US.

Yes I know Dove. I also wrote about that on this blog.

The vast aggregate of peoples who are generally classified as Mongoloid, who settled the Far East, have been a question as to where they fall into the Table of Nations. The evidence shows they are Hamitic, even though some have incorrectly reasoned that the Chinese were of Japhetic stock, and the Japanese were either Japhetic or Semitic. There are two names which provide clues. Two of Canaan's sons, Heth (Hittites) and Sin (Sinites), are presumed to be the progenitors of Chinese and Mongoloid stock. The Hittites were known as the Hatti or Chatti. In Egyptian monuments the Hittite peoples were depicted with prominent noses, full lips, high check-bones, hairless faces, varying skin color from brown to yellowish and reddish, straight black hair and dark brown eyes.

New-found Artifact Revives Ancient Tzitzit Dying Methods/Arutz 7

Antiquities Authority presents recent discovery at conference, proof of tekhelet dying techniques from over 2,000 years ago.

"We live in a time of the redemption, and our reaction to (the new findings) should be to elevate ourselves to the most angelic and sublime form," said Rabbi Dr. Tzvi Hirsch Weinreb, Executive Vice President Emeritus of the Orthodox Union. "We should see the fulfillment of the commandment of tekhelet, the mitzvah that is at the root of our being, as an integral part of that process."

Rabbi Dr. Meir Soloveichik, Rabbi of Congregation Shearith Israel, NY, and Director of Yeshiva University's Straus Center for Torah and Western Thought, closed the conference by speaking about the symbolism of tekhelet.

"While the white strings represent that which we can simply understand, the tekhelet represents the mysterious and the limits of human understanding," commented Rabbi Soloveichik. "For centuries, Jews wore purely white tzitzit. A Jew can fulfill the mitzvah with only white fringes, but only when the concrete and the mysterious are on display side by side are Torah and Judaism truly represented."

Rabbi Soloveichik further tied the symbolism to the national identity of Israel.

"The union of blue and white fulfills a commandment as well as the dream of Zionism itself," remarked Rabbi Soloveichik. "Israel is simultaneously a modern democratic marvel and a symbol of the Jewish people as the Chosen People. This conference is not only a celebration of a scientific discovery and the furthering of Jewish Law, but an opportunity to ponder the symbolism of this combination and recognize our place in the enduring Jewish story

While the newly rediscovered dye has not been taken on by all Jews yet, participants noted rabbis at the event expressed approval, even if they don't all encourage the dye as an obligation at this time, signifying how the commandment may be reinvigorated by the people from the ground up.

Third, why would Meir or anyone else be so fixated on China and its relationship to Israel? There is none; hopefully, Moshiach is closer than we think and all this is meaningless, plus these countries will all be part of H's Judgment.
