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.

Ok, so i didn't actually read this post yet, but thanks for the new post!! I just wanted to say that The Eagles won the superbowl (which I'm sure you know). I just wanted to note that I noticed a few people on FB make biblical references to being carried home on the wings of eagles. Given your sports references from the past, can you please comment on this? Also, I'm from Philly(Now Ramat Beit Shemesh) so GO EAGLES!! (Especially if they will usher in Moshiach :)).

Just to throw in a monkeywrench, doesn’t the “s” sound resemble a ‘hissing’? And to stir the pot a bit more, I’ve seen info that accuses the vp of belonging to an undercurrent that wants to supplant him as “P”. I find his speech fantastic and therefore puzzling; and am waiting for more of the same to really believe his intention. I believe that POTUS knows the Israeli’s soft spot and is playing on it right now. And this in no way takes away from his respect for Israel. It’s just part of his world plan (and maybe Hashem’s plan to get Israelis to see the light and soften to the Torah). Recently I saw a line that said that POTUS wants to impose a “Peace Plan even without the palestians’ compliance. Reports of financial ruin and extreme poverty in Gaza is giving warnings of war out of desperation. (Via Ashkenazi) I also read that ‘Masters’ has removed Trump’s devoted and faithful personal protector, one who even tested his fast food for deleterious effects. Why would Masters do that!?

It was giving us so many end of days in Zohar , great Rabbis like Arizal, Vilma Gaon came with their opinion and again it is only Hakadosh Baruhu knows that exact moment to redeem . us. Is it this year, the year after , in two years from now, in 5781, in the year that we give our hope Gd forbid. It will be big test for all of us, but to deeply understand the concept of Mashiah is to rich the perfection before itbcomes and to stay pure.

1. Wow what a difference a day makes! I will now be adding to this very post through editing it this evening, bli neder, with two major pieces of new information that I discovered in the last 24 hours. a) why Pence has a Final Tzadee in his last name and b) about the fact that Michael Pence in the very writing of his name has all five letters in bent form for which there are final letters if those letters appear at the end of a word. Michael has the Mem and the Kaf while Pence has the Pey, Nun, and the Final Tzadee. Only the Final Tzadee appears in the straight back form.

2. The main message from the sporting event, the Super Bowl 52, seems to be that even though one might want to side with the American Patriots for actually doing the right thing over the course of the last 12 months, it is time to log a few thousand miles on your Aliyah flight on the Wings of an Eagle. 7000 miles 150 years ago would have required months to traverse. Now you can do it in less than 11 hours! You see Eagles unlike agalot travel really fast. What is really holding you back? Besides, Sid Luckman z"l of the Bears was the best long pass thrower of all time. Tom Brady would not be able touch Luckman's coattails if Luckman in the middle of his career had not decided to serve his country during WW2.

Just a note: Mike Pence is a tool in G-d's Hand. He is basically a very good person who raked the grounds of my father's mother's family's cemetery in S. Louis after over 100 headstones were knocked to the ground. As Vice President, who has an hour to spend raking the leaves in a historic Jewish cemetery? Seeing him in that role convinced me that his Chessed is Emeth. By the way, the name of the cemetery in University City is Chessed Shel Emeth, and I do not believe in coincidences! Because of the Good that he has done in small ways, HaShem Himself has elevated him into the role that he now fills.

I'd be Just a little bit careful in claiming "credit". What is your track record up to now on such matters. I'm far from convinced.

As I've said before, you overlook a great deal in the entire scheme of things. You haven't taken the most important lesson of Eliyahu HaNavi. Evidently it is hidden to many. Look more closely at what would seem superficial but is much more important for the long term. Many many details are required to be complete before the end. It's a waste of time pursuing cryptic analysis when better spent. Who has spoken of time.

Unfortunately too many are concerned more with what matters little and thus overlook the minor, but large, steps Hashem has and is taking. It's there for all to see but there is more about the two-thirds than what is beyond the eyes. Truly sad to see. Is it not obvious to see Hashem daily in everything you experience, in its subtlety, but profoundness. It is a wonderment and a bringer of joy in life. How few know it though.

Sharbano: It is not a matter of "claiming credit" right now. At this moment I am exhausted, too tired to write a new post on this subject when I already wrote this Tu B'Shevat post two years ago. It is best that readers read that post and see in it a financial event that did not happen two years ago when the astronomical signs were evident, but for whatever reason G-d has chosen to bring about NOW on this Tu B'Shevat, not the one from two years ago. It just goes to show why we cannot use astrology to predict the future. The spiritual judgement of the month of Shevat is rooted in the Tzedeq (The Zodiac) of how G-d's judgements are dispersed throughout the year from Tishrei in September/October when our righteousness is weighed against our sins on G-d's Heavenly Scale (The Goyim call that Lybra.) Shevat is the time of year where everywhere throughout the world, we start receiving are reward for our peirot for our good deeds as opposed to reward for our Qeren Qayemet (the trunk and branches of our mitzvot). The wicked receive both their Qeren Qayemet and their peirot in this world, and they tend to sock it away in the Stock Market. Well the day after that lunar eclipse for the month of Shevat, the Stock Market is going down the tubes. Go figure.... It is happening because the wicked at -50 simply don't deserve another chance to climb out of their moral sewer. From here on out until Mashiach comes we, the righteous and the beinoni, will now live off our peirot. You can kiss the Qeren Qayemet in Olam HaZeh for the Wicked Goodbye. The Qeren Qayemet for the righteous and the beinonim is in Olam HaBa, safely tucked away in a Heavenly bank account. We will leave it in G-d's Hands. It is not invested in the NY Stock Exchange.

The big question is at this juncture is why would America, a formerly Xtian country, be spiritually exposed to a lunar event, a Blood Moon or a lunar eclipse. Xtianity a religion of Rachmanut without Din is totally Solar since the cycle of Rachmanut in the year rises with the lengthening of solar days and shrinks with the shortening of solar days in the Northern Hemisphere since Eretz Yisrael is in the Northern Hemisphere. So the Xtian calendar is totally a solar calendar, and America should only fall as a result of a Solar eclipse not a lunar eclipse. The answer is because the Blue States of America is no longer a Xtian country for the most part. The number one religion practiced on the Coasts in the Blue States (such as where the NYSE sits) of the United States is no longer Xtianity. It is now Witchcraft or Jedi'ism or something which involves Witchcraft. Now Witchcraft DOES have a lunar calendar. So this Blood Moon was at least in part meant for them. How the United RedStates of America survives this? I don't know. Maybe Texas will need to start its own stock exchange. Leaving your monetary markets in the hands of Ba'alei Tumah on the East Coast was not a good idea.

And leaving Torah life in the United States or 90% of it in those Blue States where the religion of your neighbors is either Witchcraft or one's racial or gender identity is also a horrible decision. You live behind enemy lines.

I will be writing a post about this monumental Geulah event, the death of the Qeren Qayemet for the Wicked in the Stock Market one day and a half after Tu B'Shevat (starting on Friday with the 666 point drop), but I don't know if I will have time TODAY to do it. I am swamped with work. So until then, please reread my post from two years ago. The spiritual information in the post is the same every year during Shevat when the the Decree in Shamayim (Heaven) for parnassah switches between receiving reward from the "principle", the Qeren Qayemet for Mitzvot, to receiving reward from the "fruits" of our mitzvot. It really happens every year on Tu B'Shvat. But in the year of the spiritual onset of the Final Redemption, the Gashmiyut of the Wicked is rewarded both with the Qeren Qayemet AND their fruits from whatever good they did in the previous year, only for the Wicked to lose it all after Tu B'Shevat. This explains the skyrocketing Stock Market between Zayin Cheshvan 5778 and Tu B'Shevat..... followed now by its collapse. The Righteous and the Beinonim (those whose merits slimly "outweigh" their demerits. Remember those scales from Tishrei?), will continue to receive the reward from the fruits only now that this fateful Tu B'Shevat has come and gone. I will try to leave other comments right here, time permitting.

Eilu D'varim she Adam Ochel Peiroteihem b'Olam HaZeh veHaQeren Qayemet b'Olam HaBa. You want to survive this time financially? Concentrate on those mitzvot listed when you wake up in the morning! Start with Kibud Av veEim!

On your last statement, "Eilu D’varim…”, Rabbi Ginsburgh spoke about this in his shiur on Shlomo HaMelech. On earth in this world of “doing”, Hashem governs with the midda of rachmonos, while in Shamayim we are worthy only thru merit. So doing our Mitzvot and especially tzedaka/chessed gains us that spiritual currency of “merit.” More valuable than gold.

What the drops on Friday and Monday indicate is that a trillion dollar US federal deficit with rising interest rates and because of the massive increases in the the money supply over the last nine years, inflation is about to "go through the roof."

Any Geula extrapolations on that “666” plunge? That’s three six’s in a row!

2/07/2018 8:22 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Amaleq is the 666th prince of Edom. From the Gemorrah Megillah 6: There are 300 princes in Germamia and 365 in the Roman Catholic Church (the 365 principle saints of the Roman Church, one for each day of the Solar year). As long as Germany was in a state of disunity with not treaty with the Roman Church, Amaleq was bound. Where was he? Amaleq was lying in wait in Austria or in the Austrian Hungarian Empire. Only with the formation of the 3rd Reich were the 300 princes in Germany unified with an unbreakable treaty with the Roman Catholic Church, the only treaty that Hitler never broke. And Hitler? He was the 666th prince from Austria, not from Germany originally. You see. This is one of the things that is in the N.T. which is true but not new as opposed to much of what they say as being new but not true. Except they got the time frame all wrong. The 666th prince already rose and died in the 2nd War of GogUmagog called WW2 and was likely the most evil man who ever lived. No doubt about that with the possible exception of Joe Stalin and Mao TseTung who were equally as evil. So the writers of the New T. got some things right even if the final outcome of who they thought he would be became a bit warped. But most of them were Jews. so they had good sources for their material.

Anyway, Amaleq did appear in America for the last 8 years. His name was Barack Obama, who seemed to have cast a spell on the financial markets. No longer would stocks represent the net asset value of corporations. The Price of stocks under his guidance became a bold faced lie. Until the 2008 financial collapse, there was a semblance of truth in the value of stocks (Net Asset Value = stock price x the number of outstanding shares). Starting with the rise of Obama, the stock price became equal to whatever the powers that be damn well pleased. This past Friday, that ended. Amaleq was expunged from the market. G-d has taken the Satan's play tool back, a tool that for whatever reason, G-d allowed the truly wicked to have. Can the dead market be brought back from the dead after a decade's absence? Is that G-d's plan? Or does He have something else to accomplish with this market. Time will tell, but the Big Lie has now left the stock market.

Wow, thank you Reb Dov. The bit about the 300 princes of Germania is I wonder going to resurface? Why, maybe because of the mooslims. Maybe different “princes” will recede from Germany proper in order to deal with the onslaught. Do you think that might occur?

As Rabbi Y. Mizrachi explains things, the poor are poorer, the middle-class is now poor, and the rich are more so. The actual physical money will be replaced by a “CARD” with no cash available. That’s another item from the N.T. predictions as the beast, which will control everything.

We are now a mere 222 years from the next plan of Hashem (6000) so a lot of predictions and prophecies must occur soon. And I would guess that includes Mashiach, who will fight all this. No? I asked Rabbi Winston to bring us up to date because we are so close, and he said he’s working on something.

Ok, I must admit now, that I overlooked the spiritual impact of the VP speech; which was clarified for me by Rabbi Kessin. Also, now that the “Dossier” has been exposed via the “Memo” I think we are about to see a complete upset of the Congress and Senate, with big elections coming up.

If I'm not mistaken, rabbi Yuval Ovadia explained in his last shiur the following order of things that will happen:

1) Nibiru will pass close to earth causing havoc. Israel will be the safest place in the world.

2) Mashiach will be introduced and the State of Israel will be replaced by a Kingdom of Israel ruled 100% according to halacha, not democracy

3) All the nations - including our "friends" and many Jewish traitors - will join to fight Mashiach (the "Jewish Khomenei") and the real miracles of Gog Umagog will begin

4) Only righteous Jews and righteous gentiles will survive, Olam Habah begins

He didn't clarify when the Temple will be built (or fall from the sky) and when all Jews from America and elsewhere are going to make Aliyah (final ingathering of exiles from "the land of the north"). What do you think, Dov? Is that what our sources explain? Perhaps before Nibiru there will be a big war in the north, hopefully Hezbollah will be annihilated.

Ginno: B'itah according to Rav Yosef Berger of King David's tomb, Nibiru should come in 5782, the coming Shmittah year. But if everything holds off that long over 2.5 billion people will die in the final war. And 2.5 billion people will suffer but survive a severe plague. I can't wrap my head around such numbers. I pray that things happen faster than that to reduce the flow of blood. But is obvious that no one is intent on preventing this from getting this bad.

This Shmittah cycle is on track for the really bad guys in the world in North Korea and in Iran to develop a full array of nuclear and biological weapons. Too many wicked people and moral imbeciles are not interested in stopping them. So G-d has to jump in to speed up the process.

Ginno, I also read that as a result of Nibiru, the land masses will be altered greatly. Did you hear any of that on the video? This could account for many people’s being drowned and countries/islands disappearing.

I heard an interview that mentioned that the stock market needs to return to the healthy number it was at sometime in the past. IOW it needs to correct itself. Could this be what’s happening?

Trump's biggest problem in the US is that half of the voting population actually supports the Deep State and its stated goals and hopes that it succeeds. It is fallacious to assume that this war against the Deep State is a war between the common folk and the Deep State when half of the common folk in America voted for Hillary or Jill Stein, and another 1/6th of them don't know what they believe. Face it, Trump and the 1/3 of Americans who are his core supporters are really outnumbered.

Blogger Ginno Ricci said...

Dov, not to mention many of those "core Trump supporters" are antisemites, alt-right stormfags, racists, isolationists in the best case and pro-Iranians in the worst, so I couldn't care less about them anyway. I'm starting to believe that decent pro-Israel conservatives like Crowder are an exception among the common people, not the rule. Don't get me wrong, I like the Trump administration, they are friendly to Israel (for now), but I don't think the US is "our greatest ally" anymore, not at least when it comes to the "common folk" nor the "deep state". For G-d's sake, forget about Crowder, I've seen even the fans of BEN SHAPIRO in The Daily Wire getting CRAZY when he mentions the word 'Israel', that's when they start to vomite all their antisemitic venom and show their real faces. They only like Ben when he smashes SJWs. Americans are NOT our friends. They are the same Edomites from Europe who have been persecuting us for centuries, some of them even from Amalek. And I'm not talking about liberals... for sure they are also bad for us, bad for the Torah and bad for Israel, that's not news.

Of course, there is always a significant minority of evangelists who support Israel. But I wouldn't trust them either, since you can't figure out who is the one trying to support our country for real and who is trying to convert us at the same time. We can't trust ANYONE but Hashem.

They can't go and just start hauling people to jail although you must have noticed some have "resigned" and other are walking away saying they will not run for re-election. And Q is calling it before it even happens. They have to be careful, though because people who get in the way of the Deep State suddenly die in a plane crash or commit suicide. And of course Hillary and John McCain are both wearing ankle monitors.

Do we live as spiritual beings in a physical world? Yes, of course, so we vote and do other things like make every attempt to make our voice heard in situations that demand our attention all the while knowing Hashem is truly involved and in total control.
Our vote, our protest, our phone calls to elected officials is nothing more than our "casted vote in Shemayim" as to which side we are on.

Something many Trump supporters are unaware of...

The Linkage Between Trump's Evangelical base and Messianic Jews in Israel

Quote: Not surprisingly, the strongest allies and best friends of Evangelical Christians in Israel are Israel’s Messianic Jews – Jews who, contrary to popular opinion, insist that one can believe in Jesus and still remain Jewish. In fact, these two communities are virtually inseparable. It would be quite challenging to find any significant business or NGO in Israel that is funded by Christians, which does not have local Messianic Jews in its executive leadership. This would include Christian television networks such as TBN, CBN and GodTV, which broadcast content from Israel every day to billions of viewers worldwide. Go to any large gathering of Evangelical tourists in Israel, and you are likely to find Israeli Messianic Jews both on stage and in the crowd.

It is interesting to note that even in the White House, Messianic Jews have made their way into President Trump’s inner circle along with their Evangelical friends. The president’s personal lawyer and trusted confidant, Jay Sekulow, is a Messianic Jew who became famous in Evangelical circles for defending the freedom of expression of Jews for Jesus before the Supreme Court of the United States. End Quote.

Of course, the JPost's opinion is to accept them so as not to rock the boat with the "powerful and necessary" American Evangelicals.

2/20/2018 10:04 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

For some reason I am more worried about these Messianic Jews than the Yoshke freaks. Rav Tovia Singer says that more Xtians have converted to Torah Judaism through the Messianic Jewish movements than Jews having accepted Yoshke as their lord and savior, G-d forbid. These Messianic Jewish front churches have proven to be a double edged sword for the evangelists who created them. But these other Messianic Jews are about to crown Rav Eliezer Berland Shlit"a as Mashiach ben David on Zayin Adar! That is more dangerous.... unless they know something that the rest of us are in the dark about.

There are some Orthodox Jews in the Trump circle, including Kushner and ambassador Friedman. In any case, if we talk about Trump supporters I'm more concerned about the stormfags who want to kill all of us than the evangelists or messianics. Dov, maybe Rav Berland is the Mashiach after all... but how are we supposed to know? Eliyahu Hanavi is going to come from heaven or something?

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

If that were the case, then the Chabad Rebbe's followers (the ones who think he is Mashiach) will need to have a semi-finals bout with the Rav Berland supporters who think he is Mashiach before going against the Yoshke supporters in the Finals round. The anointment of G-d must come from a prophet of G-d, and we will all know it together when the blessed moment happens.

Dov: regarding the video proclaiming Rav Berland as Moshiach on 7 Adar: It is a set-up... see this response from Rivka Levy at Emunaroma Blog to me:

[quote] This is being put out by Nachman Shalom, the main 'false witness' against the Rav, in league with Yom Tov Cheshin, the 'mastermind' behind the Rav's persecution.

There is a recording of Nachman Shalom and Cheshin discussing how the next stage of their campaign against the Rav will involve N.S. setting up a whole bunch of youtube accounts and fake facebook accounts to put out statements and videos purporting to be from the Rav's students, 'crowning' Rav Berland as moshiach.

The plan is then to go around to a whole bunch of rabbis again to denounce this 'shabtei tzvi' behavior of the Rav and his students, and to see if anyone is gullible enough to excommunicate the Rav and Shuvu Banim (again... for like the 6th time, or something).

Please feel free to pass this explanation on, as the more bloggers who are aware of what's really going on and why, the easier it will start to be to head this terrible persecution off, and to really stop klal israel from stumbling into the traps being set for them by these really awful people.

Hi Reb Dov, it's Maurice from France.
I really don't believe Trump or Pence would follow a false mashiah.
Why ? Because Trump's son in law, Jared Kushner, is in touch with Rav Pinto who gives him advices and spiritual guidance.
Here in France Rav Pinto is well known as a true Tsadik.
I had the opportunity to meet him and believe me he is not a fake tsadik (my parents use to go at his chiourim in Paris, and they are 100% positive about the fact that Rav Pinto is just great. Anybody knows the miracles he does almost every day).

His family is a long great family of Rabbanim and Tsadikkim, 100% in the Torah, very connected to the family Abouhatsera ...
So I really believe Jared Kushner is in good hands

Well, Rav Berland is a very big tzadik, there's no question about it. But it seems he's not the Mashiach after all. That's the problem of believing every scam on the internet: sooner or later you face the truth and get disappointed. That's why our sages cursed those who proclaim a specific date for the salvation. I believe the Mashiach is a 50 year-old Sepharadi... but who knows? I make Aliyah, that's the most important thing😊

The Rav Berland Mashiach announcement" was known to be a libel in advance of it happening, it was declared by people wanted to smear his name.
They wanted people to think it would happen, to be upset when it did not happen, and so to be against Rav Berland in future.
It was an evil plan.

I can think of several candidates for Mashiach at this point (some Rabbinical others political), and there will surely be some whom I do not know of through ignorance, and others whom are hidden Tzadikkim.

Should we celebrate the death of Auerbach like his followers celebrated when Rav Shteinman Z''L passed away? Of course not! We are not like them and this is not the way of the Torah. I hope Rav Auerbach protested the chillul Hashem that some people in his group made against the gadol hador! If not, he's going to have a very big problem in shamaim, regardless of how many times he finished the Shas. There's a Judge you can't bribe, not even with Torah and mitzvot. Even more so, if your behaviour doesn't correspond to the Torah you know, that very same Torah could be used by the Satan as a kitrug.

Dov,

I don't expect you to post my response, since I don't follow the line of some of the bloggers - that's OK.

If I am going to hell for what I say about Berland, so are other great people such as Rav Eliyahu. As I stated in the past, I would be thrilled to be anywhere near R Eliyahu in Olam Haba.

In any case, in the same link you put in your recent comment, there was a powerful rebuke.


I guess I won't be learning Halachas, such as lashon haro or too many other things from this blog.

Here's part of the rebuke - more is in the link Dov sent, if you scroll down to the comments.

Do Not Stand by the Blood of Your Neighbor


Just as it is permitted for a victim to speak out when doing so serves a positive purpose, so too somebody else is permitted to speak out concerning somebody potentially dangerous or harmful, where doing so will serve a positive purpose.

Rabbeinu Yonah writes (Shaarei Teshuvah 3:221):

“And know that in interpersonal matters like theft and robbery and physical harm and shame and verbal abuse, one may tell these matters to others. Even a lone witness who observes these matters may inform, in order to help the victim and to seek truth...

Each of us is obligated to prevent harm from befalling another. The Torah warns, “Do not stand by the blood of your neighbor” (Vayikra 19:16). Although the direct implication relates to physical harm, the principle applies even to financial or emotional harm (see Rambam, Sefer Ha-Mitzvos 297). When a person is able to bring about a constructive purpose by means of speaking, he is positively obligated to do so, and should be wary of holding back.

The Pischei Teshuvah (Orach Chaim 156), who was clearly concerned with overly pious individuals who are reluctant to share information, clarifies this principle in no uncertain terms:

“The Magen Avraham and the mussar books write at length concerning the prohibition of lashon hara. I have found it appropriate to write about the other side [of the coin]. There is a sin even greater than [speaking lashon hara], and one which is more widespread, namely, the sin of refraining from informing another about a situation in which one can save him from being victimized—all out of concern for lashon hara… One who behaves in this manner, his sin is too great to bear and he violates the injunction: You shall not stand by the blood of your brother.”

Based on this principle, Rav Ovadia Yosef (Yechaveh Daas, Vol. 4, no. 7) ruled that a physician is obligated to report to the Department of Motor Vehicles a patient suffering from epilepsy, in order to have his license suspended. The obligation to prevent harm overrides the prohibition of speaking lashon hara, and of doctor-patient confidentiality.

Re: Rabbi Eliyahu on Rabbi Berland - https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/215456

There are noted rabbis on both sides of the issue.

Rabbi David Bar-Hayim, while refusing to address the guilt or innocence of the rabbi, does speak to the stature and reliability of any pronouncements by Rabbi Stern: http://machonshilo.org/en/images/stories/files/1016_2016-08-10--Stern-Berland.pdf

I think it is important to acknowledge that, under the circumstances, good Torah Jews do not err if they withhold judgment in this case and remain wary of those who use threats and intimidation on either side.

Trump's Mideast Peace Plan Takes Shape - And It's Not Good

Senior Trump administration officials reportedly are crafting a plan for Middle East peace. Based on the details that are available so far, friends of Israel have good reason for concern.

According to a front-page New York Times report on Nov. 12, the administration is preparing what it considers to be an "ultimate deal" between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs. There appear to be two phases to the plan.

Phase one will consist of "confidence-building provisions" by each side. The problem is that Israel will be expected to make new concessions, while the Palestinians will be asked to do things that they already committed to do in the Oslo Accords 24 years ago.

In other words, Israel will be forced to pay yet again for the same rug that it bought more than two decades ago.

According to the Times, the "confidence-building" measures Israel will be pressed to take will include halting Jewish construction in most of Judea and Samaria, publicly committing to creation of a Palestinian state, and handing over additional parts of the territories to the Palestinian Authority (PA). All three of those actions go way beyond what the Oslo Accords obligate Israel to do.

That's just phase one of Trump's "ultimate plan." Phase two is even worse. The Trump plan, according to the Times, will "be built around the so-called two state solution that has been the core of peacemaking efforts for years."

Here's what that means. Israel would be forced back to approximately the pre-1967 lines--so that the middle of the country would be just nine miles wide. Planes landing and taking off from Ben Gurion Airport would be within striking distance of any terrorist with a shoulder-launched missile, standing inside the borders of "Palestine."

A sovereign Palestinian state would be able to important whatever weapons it wants. It could also invite in foreign "volunteers"--that is, Iranian troops--and there would be nothing Israel could do about it.

In addition, a Palestinian state would mean that the central part of the historic Jewish homeland will be torn away from the Jewish people. Sometimes we lose sight of the fact that cities such as Shiloh, Shechem (Nablus) and Hebron are the ones mentioned in the Torah, not Tel Aviv or Haifa.

Of course, creating a Palestinian state there would mean the mass expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Jews from their homes in those regions.

What would Israel get in exchange? A piece of paper with essentially the same worthless promises that the Palestinian leadership made when the Oslo agreement was signed.

No wonder the PA's envoy to Washington, Husam Zomlot, was quoted in the Times as heaping praise on the Trump initiative. If the Israel-haters of the PA love the plan, you can bet that spells trouble for Israel.

Thus, until further notice it hence looks like Trump wants to attain the real estate deal of the century and receive the Nobel Peace Prize (especially since Obama got one) no matter the cost for Israel.

Therefore we say:

Trump, Kushner and Greenblatt ad nauseum: Keep Your Deals for Yourselves

Believe us that Trump will get high approval ratings in the USA before the Arabs here will be willing to live in peace with Jews/the State of Israel. So, the bottom line is that instead of joining to world in trying to pressure Israel into suicide, Donald Trump, Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt should polish up POTUS’s image in their home country. There’s more of a chance they’ll succeed in that quest.

Meir: Trump needs his alliance with the Sunni Arab States against Iran more than he needs his alliance with Israel. Yet, he has been procrastinating and procrastinating before disclosing his plan. But he will need to propose something very soon to our detriment in order to keep that alliance. Trump is caught in the GogUMagog whirlwind. America has been with us through the bending of the Final Pey. We will be alone against the world sometime during the bending of the Final Tzadee starting this Tamuz. We are rapidly approaching the side of Great Din on the world when all of Creation is being bent toward final judgement because the world was created with the Name Elokim. We have had 26 eras lasting 222.2 years each for each of the other 26 letters including four of the five final letters. The last or 27th 222.2 year period will correspond with the Final Tzadee. It begins with the bending of the final Tzadee, the only letter in Pence's name which is not bent. US Vice President Mantzpa"ch is composed completely of the letters that are final at the ends of the words plus a Yud and the Name Keil. מיכאל פנץ Notice that the Mem, Kaf, Pey and Nun are bent, but the Tzadee is in final form. It is the case because the Tadee more than any of the letter represent Mashiach Tzidkeinu, and Michael Pence believes in thew wrong Mashiach, a false Mashiach. So when it comes time to follow the real one, we will be alone in the world.

Saudi Prince Salman conveys details of ‘Deal of Century’ to Palestine

"Jared Kushner, U.S. President Donald Trump's advisor and son-in-law, has conveyed details of the proposed deal to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman," Ahmed Majdalani, a member of the PLO's Executive Committee, told Anadolu Agency by phone.

According to Majdalani, Bin Salman, in turn, had informed Palestinian officials, who had responded by reiterating their commitment to a 2002 Arab peace initiative as a basis for settlement.

Initially proposed by Saudi Arabia, the 2002 peace initiative calls for formal recognition of Israel by all Arab states in return for an Israeli withdrawal from all Palestinian territories occupied in 1967.


The peace proposal that Trump likes best - and that his son-in-law and special Middle East adviser Jared Kushner is reportedly pursuing together with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman - looks remarkably like a real estate transaction. Unsurprising, given that the 36-year-old Kushner has no previous experience in diplomacy, but an awful lot of it in wheeling and dealing in the high-stakes world of New York property ventures.

Casting himself as the best friend Israel could hope for, President Donald Trump is promising, some may say threatening, to unveil his grand plan for a peace “deal” to end the so-called “Middle East problem”.

Trump has always fancied himself as a deal-maker; he has even written a book on the subject. It is, therefore, no surprise that he might want to put his skill to use on an issue which has defied numerous deal-makers for six decades.

What are the chances of him succeeding? The short answer is: nil!

So I would rather go by sherut to TA if I ever had to go there.

Things are happening behind the scenes in the WH and DC. Soon we should hear good news about the one-third of the Govt that is mired in evil. Their end is near and getting nearer. Mid-term Elections are nearing and it should see many upheavals, I hope.

The new train linking Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is a sign of Geula.

We have to trust in Hashem for security, whilst doing what we can also.

The Saudi Crown Prince MBS is in London for a two-day state visit.

The poet who predicted the Holocaust and Israel's rebirth...

One Truth and Not Two
by Uri Zvi Greenberg
(interpreted from Hebrew by Laurence Cramer)
Your Rabbis taught: A land is bought with money
You buy the land and work it with a hoe.
And I say: A land is not bought with money
And with a hoe you also dig and bury the dead.
And I say: A land is conquered with blood.
And only when conquered with blood is hallowed to the people
With the holiness of the blood.
And only one who follows after the cannon in the field,
Thus wins the right to follow after his good plow
On this, the field that was conquered.
And only such a field gives nourishing and healthy bread
And the house which arises on its hill is truly a fortress and a temple,
Because in this field there is honorable blood.
Your Rabbis taught: The messiah will come in future generations:
And Judea will arise without fire and without blood.
It will arise with every tree, with every additional house.
And I say: If your generation will be slow
And will not grasp in its hands and forcibly mold its future
And in fire will not come with the Shield of David
And in blood will not come with its horses saddled -
The Messiah will not come even in a far off generation.
Judea will not arise.
And you will be living slaves to every foreign ruler.
Your houses will be straw for the sparks of every wicked one.
And your trees will be cut down with their ripe fruit.
And a man will react the same as a babe
To the sword of the enemy -
And only your ramblings will remain - yours...
And your statue, an eternal curse.
Your Rabbis taught: There is one truth for the nations:
Blood for blood - but it is not a truth for Jews.
And I say: There is one truth and not two.
As there is one sun and as there are not two Jerusalems.
It was written in the Law of Conquest of Moses and Joshua
Until the last of my kings and my traitors have consumed.
And there will be a day when from the river of Egypt until the Euphrates
And from the sea until the mountain passes of Moav my boys will go up
And they will call my enemies and my haters to the last battle.
And the blood will decide: Who is the only ruler here.

Personally, i thought that the bom attack in Gaza on the P.A. P.M. yesterday, was a good sign. If a terror plot were potentially people - G'd's creation afterall - can be hurt, is ever a good sign, that is. Some things better remain unsaid, it is tempting to say it anyway... Ideally even if PA and Hamas don't go into full conflict again, one side goes along after much persuading by the Western Amalekites with the peace plan, and the other side doesn't, after much persuading by Isis, or Muslimbro's, or Iran, or International socialists, or whoever.
Not that i am so briliant at analysing this, or predicting this. It is much more of a deja vu. But a deja vu that fits a Divine pattern. Phailestinians always fail, Jews get saved by the bell ! (isn't it better to keep certain tactical information quiet ?)

Ok, here it goes. I will now post a bunch of my thoughts about things as they are happening. The Abandonment of the Kurds is now on part 10 since the world has already abandoned them multiple times.

Trump can't wait on N. Korea indefinitely. It is shocking that he has held off this long. As soon as Kim Jong Un tackles the issue of reentry of his iCBMs, cities in America are in imminent danger. What the heck is he waiting for?
If this holds off for two years, over 2 billion people will die.

It is kind of depressing. Watching the world spin out of control to the point where over 2 billion people will die.

The Kurdish city of Afrin was overrun on Rosh Chodesh Nissan. The Evil Erdogan gets his way. So what is the consequence?
I don't know. except to say that if this does not lead to WW3, it will happen by the Shmittah year anyway when 2.5 billion people will die. It would be better if it would begin now. By then if everyone has successfully tiptoed around the issue of Iran and N. Korea, the war will begin anyway as an act of Iranian aggression and 2.5 billion people will die then. I can't see why that would happen except that 2.5 billion people deserve to die..... which may be the case. But I can't write about that. Do you think that 2.5 billion people are so rotten that they deserve to die?

Well if that is the case, that would be the reason for the delays so that when the war actually begins that many people will die. Right now, that would not happen. But when Iran gets its bombs and missiles in order with the help of N. Korea and when Saudi Arabia has its own array of nukes, that is what will happen. I must admit the fact that no one gives a damn about Turkey's invasion of Syrian Kurdistan and the civilian bloodletting on a massive scale is evidence that 2.5 billion people likely deserve to die. How can anyone even attempt to write about that? the death of over 2 billion people is not fodder for any blogger. If someone had taken the Kurds cry for for help and invaded Turkey in their defense, it would have meant that the world deserved some Rachamim. Turkey would have been destroyed. istanbul would have been captured. Mashiach would come with Rahamim with fewer dead.

This war against the Kurds is an opening to take on Evil NOW when only 100 or 200 million people might die. The world is completely uninterested in preventing another genocide because it is a far more evil place. So in three or four years time, the War will take place, and one third of the world's population will die. hard to write a blog post about the death of 2.5 billion people.
If anyone really gave damn, they would have stopped Erdogan now, but this world only knows how to btch about civilian deaths when Israel does it. When Erdogan does it by targeting civilians, no one gives a damn. It takes a really evil world to reach that low. But that is our world at this juncture.

So this will likely drag on until the Shmittah year, and 2.5 billion people will die when the time comes instead of the 100 million that might die now. On that note, what am I to do. I can't blog about such a disgusting world where 1/3 or the world's population deserves to die and another third deserves plagues. not much to write about.
Remember how much the world hates us, and maybe we won't feel so bad about this.

Israel Rising tells us to watch out for Turkey!
Many months previously, I estimated that Turkey would be a danger from the North to watch out for. Traditionally, it has been Syria from the North that we estimated as the danger, but when looking at the globe, not the map, Turkey is due north from Israel. IF Erdogan is not brought low, in his psychopathy, could attempt to strike out at Israel. He is now emboldened by his takeover of Kurdish Afrin. He is a dangerous and unpredictable psychopath.

I am guessing here, that there will be a reprisal against the Turks by the Kurds. It might become very vicious and unpredictable.

Trump has shelved the PaliPiecePlan indefinitely, because he is building his offensive against Iran. Perhaps a duo with NOK, if that is possible. BinSalman is coming to Trump. Part of the plan. This could be the real prophecy unfolding, king from the south confers with king of edom. . . .etc.

Agree with Neshama regarding Turkey, the world is turning a blind eye to this madman's Neo-Ottoman ambitions with Europe giving Turkey a large foothold and position of influence, while screwing over the Kurds once more. For whatever reason NATO refuses to kick Turkey out for aligning with Iran and Russia and generally being a big nuisance for the past 18 years or so since the 2nd Iraq war.

Turkey as a whole has yet to be humbled, is not even native to the region and is not even ashamed of their genocide of Armenians, Assyrians and Greeks. They also planned the same fate for the Jewish people in the Land of Israel during WW1 only to be prevented by German General called Erich von Falkenhayn, who himself had no particular love for the Jews.

Turkey hints at forming 5-million-strong alliance against Israel

A call for the 57 member states of the OIC to form a joint “Army of Islam” to besiege and attack the state of Israel. It notes that such a joint army will greatly exceed the Israeli army in manpower, equipment and budget, and presents statistics to prove this.

If the OIC member states unite and form a joint military force, it will be the largest army in the world. These countries’ total population is 1,674,526,931. The number of soldiers in active service in these countries is at least 5,206,100. Their [overall] military defense budget, of $174.7 billion, is also worthy of emphasis.

As for Israel, its total population is approx. 8 million. Note that the population of Istanbul alone exceeds 14 million. The number of soldiers in active service in the [Israeli] occupation forces is 160,000, and [Israel’s] defense budget is approximately $15.6 billion.

Also noted is Pakistan, with its nuclear arsenal, “has important status among the 57 Muslim countries.”

In a statement, Malaysian Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein described President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as a blow to Muslims, and added: “The Malaysian armed forces are ready to fulfill their duty regarding Jerusalem.

R. Nir ben Artzi however says: Turkey is finished and destroyed. Erdogan is afraid that they would kill him and fear that there would be a revolution. They tell from Heaven: Yes, there will be a revolution! Patience and you will see. Turkey and Syria, there will be harsh conflicts between them. Turkey has become a state of Hamas and Isis, there is no culture, there is chaos, Erdogan cannot do anything, and Isis rules it. Turkey, Erdogan is going crazy day by day. He speaks badly of the people of Israel in all directions. The Creator will bring him down. Destroy his economy, have Sodom and Gomorrah in Turkey. Turkey will go bankrupt, because Isis controls Erdogan who does the will of Isis. Turkey, the Turks discovered that Erdogan is corrupt, who wants to eat everyone and cares only for himself and his family. Erdogan is talking against the people of Israel, he will fall in a big way and everyone will see him fall. Turkey is losing all direction in economy and trade, not knowing who is against whom.

Ahval: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, in a speech to crowd in south city of Mersin, slammed fellow NATO members, saying that “if NATO members were strong enough in Syria, they would have stood up to us openly and clearly. But they do not have the cheek, and hence Turkey is standing up.”

A day before, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Çavuşoğlu told a German newspaper that “NATO is our home.” Çavuşoğlu also responded to talk that Turkey no longer fit into the NATO alliance, saying to the same German paper, “We are one of (NATO’s) key allies. This is our strategic choice. Nobody can expel us, it is technically impossible. We will not permit our NATO membership to be questioned.”

My comments: Talk about having it both ways!

For years it has been argued that Turkey might be leaving NATO and join the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

In preparation for its role in Yechezkel’s war of Gog and Magog, Turkey will shift away from NATO and likely join the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). During a trip to Russia in November 2013, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan once again said that Ankara would abandon its quest to join the European Union if it was offered full membership in the SCO.

The SCO was founded in 2001 consisting of China, Russia and the “stans”, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.

Follow the energy routes to Europe:

If Turkey joins the SCO, the alliance will control energy routes from the north (Russia) and south (Middle East) into an energy dependent Europe. The downside for Erdogan is that the SCO cannot provide Turkey with defense of its strategically important borders as the US-led NATO can, leaving Turkey vulnerable to attack.

Enters Israel. On December 6, 2017, Cyprus, Greece, Italy, and Israel signed up to a gas pipeline that would reduce EU dependency on Russia.

The EastMed pipeline is to ship up to 16 billion cubic metres (bcm) of gas a year from the Levantine Basin near Israel and Cyprus to Greece and Italy by 2025.

Road to War (Gog and Magog):

Yechezkel 38:12 only tells us that the war is over plunder, and that Russia, Turkey, Iran and North Africa are drawn into the war with ‘hooks in the jaw’ possibly indicating a massive economic threat.

Only H' knows how the prophecies of Yechezkel will roll out. Prophesies are usually warnings from H' and a call to repent. Hence Yechezkel's prophesies don't necessarily have to materialize. Events can take a much different path if we, H's people, repent and follow His ways and will.

Ok Yalkut Shimoni redux There are two differences this time than at the last meeting last Spring between Trump and MbS.

1. MbSalman is now the Crown Prince and the effective ruler of Saudi Arabia since his father King Salman is going senile. So for all intents and purposes Mohammad bin Salman is the "king" of Arabia this time. Last Spring he was not the Crown Prince. Over the past year, MbS has been active in his role as absolute ruler of the Kingdom of Saud, jailing whom he wants and whenever he pleases.

2. MbS came to visit Trump rather than the other way around, and that is the case according to the account in the Yalkut Shimoni.

Having said all that, I have no idea if this is the final trigger or not.

Third Temple Alert: Police Authorize Passover Sacrifice Next to Temple Mount

Religious Jewish factions say they are moving ever closer to the realization of the Third Temple in Jerusalem.

The latest evidence of this is police authorization, granted on Sunday, for a Passover sacrificial ceremony to be held just tens of meters from where the Second Temple once stood.

Religious groups have been holding public Passover sacrifices, in accordance with the biblical outline, for years. But never before have they been permitted to conduct the ceremony so close to the Temple Mount, which the Muslims claim as their own, even as they deny the holy site holds any religious or historical significance for the Jewish people.

Last year, the Passover sacrifice was conducted in the courtyard of the nearby Hurva Synagogue in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem's Old City, some 450 yards from the Temple Mount. This year, it will take place at the Davidson Center, an archaeological park situated at the southern foot of the sacred plateau, and just below the Al Aqsa Mosque.

Some people say Trump has been too close for comfort with White supremacists, especially in relation to the infamous march in Charlottesville. I think he was doing more of a tactical move(s) around the issue, though. What was he to do? Acknowledge there are many of these people, and they are all bad, and the other side wants Israel gone also, but they are the good guys, just like CNN wants him to bring the narrative?
But Donald, if you or some of your people are reading this blog, which sometimes it looks like;
What are you going to do about the killings of White Folks in Southern Africa? Surely apartheid was a bad thing, but so is revenge trough the raping of white children. And world media is turning a blind eye, since we don't want to be seen a rascists. The white farmers are not bad people. They are protestants from England, Germany, and Holland mainly, who were allies of Israel even at some point in time. (think A Bomb)
Perhaps they understood the Hebrew scripture wrongly, thinking apartheid is okay. Perhaps the black man has some responsibility for the bad state his continent is in. Perhaps even the white man has 'bad karma' somehow deserving it to be tortured. Edomites getting some of their own medicine. No, that can be right! Mosiach is failing these people, why we need a race war for ! What are we all waiting for? What are you going to do about it President Trump? Help them migrate to Australia, send in the cavalary, whatever. I want you to know that Israel would support you ( just a feeling) and many many people black and white alike in the USA would support you, if you did something about this.

The Thirty-third Level

Back in 2006 Rav Dov posted an article called “Thirty-third degree Free-Masonry”. It’s worth reviewing the whole thing, but here are just a couple of points relevant to this Pesach 5778 (2018):

The end for America is that it is dedicated to building Olam HaZeh, and will do whatever it can to prevent Mankind in general and Israel in particular from breaking through the 33rd level of purity. For above the 33rd level, the purpose for serving G-d is for its own sake. Free-Masonry is about serving G-d to build Olam HaZeh. This is why the highest level of a Free-Mason is the 33rd level.

Israel purifies the world through mitzvot one level every century. This is ten times the level that it purifies itself. While purifying ourselves one level every decade, we purify the world one level every century.


At http://yeranenyaakov.blogspot.co.il/ (quoting from SodTorah) it says this year is the 3330th year from 2448 - the year of the Exodus from Egypt. (5778 – 2448 = 3330).

So applying Dov’s level of purifying the world through mitzvot one level every century, starting from the year of Exodus (and Matan Torah), the world has been purified to the 33.3 level. So it looks like we’re about to cross a big threshold – of (in Dov’s words): the purpose for serving G-d is for its own sake. Should interesting to see how this plays out.

Which Nation Will Be The Last To Oppress The Jews, and Which Will Make it to The End Of Days?

According to Rabbi Glatstein, Messiah son of Joseph will redeem the Jewish people from the exile of Edom, which is the United States. And Messiah son of David will redeem the Jewish people from the exile of Yishmael, which is the Arab world.

Rabbi Glatstein finished his remarks with a teaching from the 18th century rabbinic and mystical genius known as the Vilna Gaon. The Vilna Gaon predicted that ultimately, Yishmael will defeat Edom.

On what basis did the Vilna Gaon make his prediction that the Arab world will ultimately defeat the United States? He derives this conclusion from the well-known Jewish principle that the Messiah son of Joseph will precede the Messiah son of David.

After laying out all the evidence for both sides of the argument, Rabbi Glatstein concluded that the last nation standing at the End of Days alongside the Jewish people will be the Arab world.

Meir and other readers of his comment, about Rabbi Berger and the (n-j) Obadiah quote: According to (Jewish) Chabad, Ovadia reads a bit differently here Ovadia quote.

One needs to be careful about how our texts are being quoted by some websites. While the subject matter about “ingathering of ‘ancient' Jews” is important, one must check sources interviewed and quoted. Not that there isn’t some validity to that written about, just that the slant needs to be authentically Jewish.

And Ashley Perry from Reconectar, is involved with connecting the remnants/descendants from the Spanish Inquisition who were forcibly converted (but kept certain Jewish customs) back to their Jewish heritage. This is also a State of Israel initiative. Especially at this time of year, as he writes: "However, on the 31st March 1492 the Alhambra Decree, the Edict of Expulsion from Spain, was signed by the joint Catholic Monarchs of Spain (Isabella I of Castile and Ferdinand II of Aragon) ordering the expulsion of practicing Jews from the Kingdoms of Castile and Aragon and its territories and possessions by 31 July, of that year.”

The subject-matter is extremely interesting and important as no one can deny that we are in the last days of this Golus, anxiously awaiting Mashiach. (I am trying to put together a post on this IY”H)

Gino: I understand your emotion, it is a bit incongruous. But we’re supposed to imagine ourselves as the Ivrim leaving our oppressors, which would then make sense that we would hope to be in Yerushalayim ‘next year’. It’s really a re-enactment of that very night.

A little before the night of the Seder, I was walking an incline, one of myriad in Yerushalayim, and all of a sudden it was dejavu, and I felt like I was trudging in the desert with the “freed Jews” out of Mitzrayim. It helped a little as the air was hot and sandy. It only lasted a few minutes but I was elated by the feeling.

The next phase in kibbutz galuot: Hint to Final Ingathering and Sequel to Hint of Ingathering.

4/03/2018 10:04 AM  
Blogger Hoshea Allen said...

HI Dov

Moedim l'simcha

Let me suggest that saying that ha lachma is archaic is akin to saying, like the early reformers did in Germany, that yakum purkan is archaic and needs to have its text changed. Only with great foresight did moreinu of that dor understand that one little (perfectly justifiable) change would lead to more and more (perfectly unjustifiable) changes.

Further, there were Jews living in Eretz Yisrael all the centuries before the late 19th and 20th and now 2lst centuries, and they could have said the same thing as you suggest. "It's archaic. We're already here, etc. etc." But they understood something that is perhaps more difficult for us to understand today, we who reside here with a medina and all.

But you may argue that now it's different because there are so many of us here now and we have the medina.

Well and good. But even though we are living here with a medina, we are still in galus, and even though "we are here," we are not really here. Because when we're really here, we won't be prisoners and slaves in our own land.

And would you suggest that we are also b'nei chorin now? Hardly. Whether it's conscription or not being able to go to certain places in our Holy Land without fear of literally being ripped into pieces by our cousins, we are not b'nei chorin. We are, as the text says, "avdei." And in the same way, neither are we ultimately "here" either.

But I understand your feelings, because I also struggled with this text for a number of years.

We are here and not here. We are free and not free, slaves and not slaves. This is the essence of galus. And the "not here" part wins out against the idea that we could change the text of the seder. Let's leave that up to the gedolei hador, and if they are hesitant to change the text, then let us wait for Mashiach to do so.

Warm regards,

Excellent comment, Hoshea @12:53 pm. I am reading comments on many blogs where you can see the influence of world opinions play into the hands of even the most religious Jews. All of a sudden, it's okay to invite the whole goyish world to become Jews and to partner with the other major religions, c'v, and proclaim whom they think to be the moshiach, etc., etc. Where is Torah? The golus is more blatant now than ever! Jews must all do teshuva and behave, as much as possible, as our forefathers did. We know we are in the pre-messianic days and that is why there is so much confusion but must not lose sight of truth which is only our Torah! Moshiach is on his way but H' will determine who and when.

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Pesach. Ours was hectic. My father-in-law has been in Shaarei Tzedeq all of Chag. So the wife has been there taking care of him. We spent 7th day of Pesach at the Shalom Hotel now part of the Rimonim chain from Tzefat. 12 1/2 years ago it was the home for Gush Katif expellees for almost two years. Elevators were very hard to deal with there. The one cramped Shabbat elevator takes about 45 minutes to go up and down. I cannot walk up ten flights of stairs. But I survived. And they had good food too.

To Hoshea: I was making a distinction between Galut (of the Shekhinah) and Geirut (the galut of Jews from Eretz Yisrael). One of the principle examples from the past when there was no Geirut but when there was Galut Shekhinah was Galut Yawan. From that time period we see a distinction from how Jews in Eretz Yisrael commemorate Chanukah compared to how Jews abroad commemorate Chanukah. Abroad the Dreidels reflect the adage (Nes Gadol Hayah Sham or a Great Miracle Happened There.) with a Nun Gimmel Hey ahd Shin on the sides of the dreidel. In Eretz Yisrael the Shin is a Pey for a Great Miracle happened HERE (Nes Gadol Hayah Po.). Some Jews come from far and wide to get those dreidels with a Pey on the dreidel instead of a Shin. So it is very possible to change a there in Aramaic for a Here in Aramaic at least for those of us HERE in Eretz Yisrael even if there is still Galut Shekhinah even here.

Blogger Hoshea Allen said...

Hi Dov

I hear.

But some of us right here in Eretz Yisrael still say nes gadol hayah sham. And why on earth would some continue to say sham even though we live here? Because the sham doesn't need to refer to Eretz Yisrael, but rather to Har HaBayit. And that's an interesting question because what exactly is the nes referred to by the dreidel? Is it the nes of the milchamah (which took place in Eretz Yisrael) or the nes of the menorah (which took place on Har haBayit)? Maybe you say that it's both. But no, it can't be both because we all say nes, not nissim.

Anyway, it's good debate.

Hold your horses....!!!!!
Look what is going on in Syria in the last 48 hours! I wrote Rav Lazer Brody an email asking him for more information about what is happening. The comment is self-explanatory. The following is what I wrote:

The week of Gevurot and the Final Redemption. I remember reading on your blog years ago that in the year of the Final Redemption when GogUMagog begins in Nissan, it would begin in the week immediately after Pesach because the Final Redemption has to judge the wicked in our midst, even the wicked in Israel. It would therefore have to take place during the week of Gevurot (aka. Din) with his night itself being the night of the sefirah of Gevurah that is in Gevurah.

I am looking at the goings on in Syria over the last 48 hours, and I am amazed. First Trump says that the US is leaving Syria in 6 months. Then Assad butchers over 80 people with Sarin Gas. Now Trump is talking about massive US retaliation. Bang bang Bang! It seems to have begun? Do you have a reference to that post that you did about the week of Gevurot which is the last week of Nissan? “In Nissan they were redeemed, in Nissan they will be redeemed”

At the 50th Gate, G-d gave a Torah on Fire to a people on Fire. As great as Trump has been for our nation over the last year and one half since he began his Presidency, he is still acting totally in the best interests of the United States. He did not want to get involved in another "pointless" war on foreign soil. He wanted to withdraw from Syria. So HaShem sent a fire to the fiftieth level of Trump Towers to teach the lesson that at the 50th Gate, He alone takes direct control of actions taking place all over the world. The masks of kings and Presidents are now discarded. The Boreh HaOlam is now moving the armies of the world on His Heavenly chess board. Trump against his will and against America's will seems to be being forced into World War. Let us see how this week transpires..... In Nissan they were redeemed, and in Nissan they will once again be redeemed.

Yet, we have not seen the Russian reaction to Trump's limited strike.
