When Shilo Comes.......

UPDATE:  Hat tip to Gilui for his chart

We are at the End of Olam HaZeh, the very End.  One might not be able to see it because the world right now is run by some awful people who think that they will be around for the next 225 years.  The process of moral decay really began in 1918 (5678 according to the Holy Calendar), a Motzei Shmittah year and a potential Yovel year according to this chart.  Notice from the chart, Ezra HaSofer reset the Sabbatical and the Yovel cycles from the beginning.  During the 2nd Temple period in accordance with the Rambam's view, the Yovel year was the 15th and the 65th year of every Jewish Century.  There were eight of these Yovel years where the 50th year itself was a unique year that was NOT the first year of the next Shmittah and/or Yovel cycle.   Since the 2nd Temple was destroyed after standing for 420 years, there was no ninth Yovel year during the 2nd Temple period.  Instead after the Churban of Bayit Sheini, the 50th year or potential Yovel year became the first year of the next Shmittah and Yovel cycle.  The year 5678 (1918) and the year 5727 (1967) were both potential Yovel years which partially realized their potential of returning the land of Israel to its Jewish inhabitants and of returning the Jews to their ancestral heritage in the Land.  (Parshat Behar, Lev. 25:10).  You see, 5678 was the year of the Balfour Declaration and the capture of Yerushalayim from the Turks by the First Gog (PM David Lloyd Gog) of Great Britain during the First World War.  Both events in the waning months of 1917 after Rosh HaShanah of course, set the stage for a large scale return of Jews to their ancestral inheritance.  At the end of WW1, the population of Eretz Yisrael included about 100,000 Jews.  By the Fall of 1947 and the Partition Plan, there were 600,000 Jews in Eretz Yisrael.  PM D. Lloyd Gog was a remarkably decent man, a good Gog of sorts, so good that he has a street named after him off Emeq Refa'im Road in the German Colony neighborhood of Yerushalayim where there are several streets named after remarkable righteous gentiles who assisted in the process of returning us to our ancient inheritance.  Notice from the Yovel chart, the year 5678 was the potential Yovel year at the end of the 46th Yovel cycle which became in actuality the first year of the 47th Yovel cycle.

So we began to traverse through the next 49 years to 5727 (1967) which turned out to be a potential Yovel year which partially realized its potential during the 6 Day War but turned into the first year of the 48th Yovel cycle whose 49th year is this very year 5775.  This makes 5776 the next potential Motzei Shmittah and Yovel year.  But let us reflect on what else happened during this time period.  What remarkable changes or degradations took place in Malkhut Edom during this 98 year period?   The most remarkable change of spiritual deterioration was in the sexual mores of the civilization.  Until WW1, women would go to the beach wearing long dresses as they went swimming in the ocean.  The women's bicycle was designed so that ladies did not have to lift up their legs at 90 degree angles to get their leg over the center bar.  To this very day, women's bikes are designed so that "Victorian" women could politely and modestly mount up on their bikes.  After WW1 that all changed.  The flappers of the Roaring 20s tested the norms of what was acceptable to the very limits of the time which were far more restrictive than what those limits were 49 years later in 1967 during the Summer of Love with public sex in the public parks.  Betty Grable's bathing suit from WW2 was already by several light years more shocking than what was acceptable in 1910 for instance.  But 50, 60, and 70  years later we have already pushed the envelope into the abyss.  The best way to look at this moral disintegration is to look at it taking place over 49 year time spans through the 47th and the 48th Yovel cycles until this very year 5775.  In the 47th Yovel cycle, the fringe third of society was attracted to pushing the envelope where 2/3rds of Americans at least refused to debase themselves.   So from 1918 thru the winter of 1967 while America remained a majority clean society, for instance, one third of Americans were already pushing the envelope to its extremes.  As the line goes from No No Nanette a musical about the Roaring 20s, "Before I go to Heaven, I want to raise a little hell."   The Chafetz Chaim himself was asked about the year 1918.  Someone went to him with a question about someone whose father was a tzaddik, but his son was a Bolshevick.  He asked the revered sage, "How can this be if the apple doesn't fall far from the tree."  The Chafetz Chaim responded that from 5678 onwards a hurricane has been blowing in the world blowing apples far, far from their righteous origins.  From 1918 onwards we can no longer expect those apples to fall calmly to the ground as they had for all the centuries leading up until this time.  And so those 49 years passed as 1/3 of Mankind perverted themselves below Mem Tet Sha'arei tumah (49th level of impurity) leaving 2/3rds of Mankind with furrowed brows watching the world crumble morally beneath their feet.  Then the Motzei Shmittah year 5727 hit, and the Summer of Love of 1967 began to take down the middle third of America and through America the rest of Mankind on another 49 year plunge until the present day where it is no longer an issue of public acts of promiscuity in city parks, but public acts of LGBT lovemaking along with the marriage contracts to recognize these abominations.  So the middle third is now about to plummet through the 49th floor by the end of this summer of 5775 as we crash into the beginning of the 49th Yovel cycle since Ezra HaSofer in 5776.

One might think that we have one more 49 year cycle left to debase the final third of humanity as we approach the 50th Yovel cycle so that there is no one left to be redeemed at the very End, but alas Zecharia haNavi, chapter 13, tells us in explicit terms, "There will be in all the earth, says the L-rd, that two portions of the (earth's) population will be cut off and will perish, and the remaining 1/3 will be left of it.  I will purify that third with fire and purify it as one purifies silver, and I will refine it as one refines gold. (And that one third) will call out in My Name, and I will answer it.  I have said, "These are my people, and they will say that HaShem is my G-d."  So alas we are not about to embark on another 49 year plunge from which no one will be redeemed.  In 5775 we are at the very end of history, the very end of Mankind's ability to pervert himself in various ways so that the planet stinks with his rot.  The Good L-rd won't permit this to go on further.  So the rotting 2/3rds will now clamor to divide Yerushalayim and establish Palestine in the process,  and they will be duly punished.  Think of 5776 as not only the beginning of the 49th or Malkhut that is in Malkhut Yovel cycle, but think of it as the Gateway to the 50th, the Sha'ar Nun, where Mashiach ben David awaits.  How to get from here to there through the last 7 months of Olam HaZeh is the problem, and the roller coaster is about to begin.

Alas Bibi is going before the US Congress on a date which he himself chose, Ta'anit Esther, to plead for the case of the Jews that a man like Haman in Persia wants to wipe us off the face of the planet.  In so many ways, he himself has debased us all.  He chose Tzippy Livni, the Witch of EinDor, to administer justice for Klal Yisrael over the two years of the 33rd Israeli Govt. since the founding of the Erev Rav Republic.   During his most recent tenure, the Ba'al Kerry over a period of nine months made us release 3 x 26 Arab murderers from our jails to appease Mankind's desire to prove our guilt by calling those murderers freedom fighters with a vicious craving for innocent Jewish blood.  What we were not privy to at the time was that the letters of HaShem's Name were being assembled with each prisoner release.  The third such release was less than one week before the 2nd of Shevat 5774 (Jan 3rd, 2014) the 72nd anniversary of the Wannsee Conference which decreed the death of every Jew on the face of the planet.  The entire world was in agreement with this as was shown about two months later on Zayin Adar 5702 when a ship called the Struma with 7 or 8 hundred Jewish refugees from the Holocaust was sunk in the Black Sea by a Russian submarine while the world simply watched and could care less.  The spiritual way to look at this is that the Shoah was the 7th Churban of Malkhut Edom which started with the destruction of the 2nd Temple.  The First Churban was the destruction of the 2nd House until the end of the Bar Kochba revolt 65 years later plus another 5 years of chasing tzaddikim around Eretz Yisrael to hunt them down for a total of 70 years, the Ayin in Esav's name.  Then there were 6 x 300 years cycles where the princes of Germany and the saints of the Roman Catholic Church formed a daily alliance, one prince of Germany + one prince of Rome per day for a total of 300 years per alliance.   This was repeated 6 times to correspond with 6 Churbanot so that we would be chased in a total of 7 different directions.  The Shoah began at the very end of that 1800 year epic in 5699, 1799 years after the year 140 when all ten sages that were murdered for the purification of Malkhut had been summarily executed (including Rav Akiva et. al).  So the Shoah was the end of the Galut, the smack of Esav's angel on Ya'akov's thigh vein at Alot HaShachar, the break of dawn at 72 minutes before sunrise.  So 72 years later right on cue, the Vav in HaShem's Name was attached to the Yud and the Key in HaShem's Name right on cue with the 3rd and final prisoner release.  The Fourth release of 26 murderers never occurred because the purpose of these releases had achieve its goal: to make the Final Redemption b'Rachamim.  We see it in the Torah itself.  The place where Ya'akov wrestled with an angel was originally called Peni'el, but after 72 minutes G-d Himself renames it Penu'el changing the Yud to a Vav to tell us that if we make it until sunrise after the 7th Churban when the Vav can be attached to HaShem's Name, the redemption will be b'RAchamim.

And so we arrive at Adar 5775.  We are told that before Ben David shows up in Tishrei of a Motzei Shmittah year several cryptic events will occur.  The Torah tells us about one of them in Bereishit:  ...The scepter (of kingship) shall not depart from Yehudah, nor the one who is Chokek (engraves laws in stone) until Shilo comes and to him will be a gathering of peoples.   So there are two possibilities here.  Shilo might be Mashiach ben David, and many amongst our sages agree with that view, but there is another view that Shilo is a separate individual who comes just before the advent of Mashiach making Mashiach ben David's role possible because this Shilo triggers an epic series of events.  In short "to him" can either be Shilo as Mashiach ben David, or Shilo is a precursor who comes as a gift to Mashiach ben David.  For Shilo can be read as Shai lo, a "precious gift to him".  So why does Mashiach ben David deserve a precious gift?  because of Yehudah's great act of teshuvah for the selling of his brother Yosef into slavery.  In so many ways kidnapping a brother and selling him as a slave is an act that deserves the death penalty.  After this horrible episode, Yehudah falls away from his brothers, sensing that he no longer had the right to lead them because of his act of ignominy.  After years and years of bearing children including the children of Tamar, he comes back to the holy family of Yisrael and wants to repent of what he did so many years earlier.  The brothers go down to Mitzraim to buy food from the 2nd to Pharaoh and he makes a request that in order to get Shimon out of jail, whom he had summarily arrested, the brothers have to bring Binyamin, the only full blooded brother to Yosef, to see if they were honest men by claiming that they had another brother whom they left behind.   Reuven pleads his case that he would watch over Yosef to no avail by offering Ya'akov to kill his two sons.  Ya'akov saw through that and logically reasoned about why would he want to murder his grandchildren to avenge the blood of Binyamin?  Ya'akov would not allow Binyamin to descend with Reuven into certain slavery or death.  But when Yehudah offers to be an areiv, a guarantor, of Binyamin's safety that he himself would go into slavery to see to it that Binyamin would return to his father, Ya'akov relents and allows Binyamin to descend.  Then the silver chalice of the 2nd to Pharaoh ends up in Binyamin's sack, and Binyamin is about to become a slave to the man standing before them.  At that point Yehudah pleads his case and begs the man to let Binyamin go free as he Yehudah offers to become the man's slave just as he promised his father.  And then Yosef reveals himself in one of the most dramatic climaxes in all of Seripture.   "I am Yosef, Does my father yet live?"  After explaining himself in a moving speech about Divine Providence to his brothers, he hugs and weeps on the neck of Binyamin his full blood brother.  So this is what G-d has in mind.  Yehudah was the areiv of Binyamin to secure his safety in Mitzraim is the greatest act of teshuvah in all of recorded history.  HaShem recognizes the great and mighty act of teshuvah that Yehudah did.  So HaShem told Yehudah, just as you through your deed of perfect penitence brought Binyamin to Mitzraim to be a gift to your brother Yosef, so at the very end of Olam HaZeh, I HaShem (Yud Key Vav or Yahu) will give (Natan) Binyamin as a precious gift to the one whose kingdom is about to be over a gathering of peoples or Binyamin NatanYahu.

So given his history of releasing murderers and hiring an Erev Rav hack to be his Minister of Justice, how could he rise to the occasion.  Well, the Talmud tells us, "We won't do teshuvah until HaShem places over us the threat of extermination by someone as wicked as Haman"  So THIS is what is at stake.  Bibi for all of his real-politick faithless calculations has come to the conclusion that on the issue of Persia, all of his real-politick machinations have to be thrown out the window.  HE HAS NO CHOICE but to place the entire matter in G-d's hands.  So he chose Ta'anit Esther to appeal before the Republicans in the US Congress which in and of itself is a futile act because it is the menuval US President that is about to sign a horrible deal with the Persian mullahs.  The Senate can advise and consent, but unless it is a real treaty, there is little that they can do to stop Obama the Snake as he brings the mighty American Republic below Mem Tet Sha'arei Tumah in this Shmittah year.  But by speaking before Congress on Ta'anit Esther he has placed this entire matter into G-d's Hands alone.  Now, I don't know if Bibi will be elected to a fourth term.  Maybe yes maybe no.  Either way we are about to embark on a 7 month roller coaster ride.  And HaShem has already calculated in all possibilities which bring the world against Yerushalayim for final judgement.  One thing is for sure.  Obama and the Europeans have already planned their revenge against Israel the day after the elections.  Whether Bibi is re-elected or whether No one is elected, they will be almost immediately be voting to establish Palestine in the UN Security Council in the early days of Nissan.  So hold on tight.  The roller coaster ride is about to get wild and hairy.

Amen, Nissan of the 7th year should be the blessed month. This year Pesach falls out on Shabbat. So if Eliyahu HaNavi comes Motzei Shabbat HaGadol, he will already be here for one week before Seder night commences!! fight the wars of HaShem before Ben David even shows up in 5776. We shall see.

The Jerusalem Post: “In private talks with European sources, the Saudis have expressed their willingness to cooperate with Israel on Iran, including use of Saudi air space by the IDF for a possible air strike, according to a report by Channel 2.

Cooperation with Saudi Arabia would not come free, however. According to the report, the Saudi officials said they would need to see progress between Israelis and Palestinians before having enough legitimacy to allow Israel to use their air space.”

Conclusions: Extortion. Give up land, move 500,000 Jewish families out of the West Bank, create a Jew-free corridor between the West Bank and Gaza and permit 5 million Jordanians the right of return. All that so the Saudis, who are scared silly of the Iranians, will give Israel airspace. What a deal!

Other Sunni states, such as, Egypt, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates say that a nuclear deal allowing Iran to keep its nuclear-producing technologies would likely drive nations in the region to develop nuclear capabilities in order to match those of Iran’s.

A nuclear arms race will break out in the region.

Meanwhile, John Kerry and the P5+1 nations are absolutely, positively certain that Iran will not get a nuclear weapon despite having said the same about North Korea until the hermit kingdom surprised the world with a nuclear test in 2006.

So what does the Bible have to say?

The best clues of a nuclear Iran are found in Ezekiel’s war of Gog and Magog. The alliance of 7 nations will advance on the mountains of Israel led by Russia, Iran, and Turkey. The alliance will fall by divine intervention and Ezekiel says this:

Ezekiel 39:6 “I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in safety in the coastlands”
Ezekiel 39:9 “Then those who live in the towns of Israel will go out and use the weapons for fuel and burn them up—the small and large shields, the bows and arrows, the war clubs and spears. For seven years they will use them for fuel”
Ezekiel 39:12 “For seven months the Israelites will be burying them in order to cleanse the land”

All three verses suggest nuclear warfare:

1. Fire on Russia/coast lands (other members of the alliance) – indicates nuclear exchange.
2. 7 years worth of fuel from weapons indicates nuclear reactors.
3. Burying the dead for 7 months suggests nuclear contamination.

Years ago, my friend told me about an interesting pattern he discovered, that I have not read about anywhere else.

The secular date July 4th and the Hebrew date 17th Tammuz have only coincided in two years.

Why were these two dates interesting to him? Because of the maxim that Yaakov and Eisav cannot both be ascendant. I'll leave it up to you to ascertain why 17th Tammuz is a more appropriate choice to use than 9th Av.

Anyway, the first such coincidence is...1776.

The next such occurrence is 1863. This date is significant because it is the day after the Battle of Gettysburg concluded, which paved the way for Union victory and ultimately American hegemony worldwide.

The next time these dates match up is...5775, on a Shabbos.

Well, I need to share something. It is not in the post because it is one of those oral traditions from the Gaon of Vilna that Rabbanim like Rav Moshe Shternbuch Shlita are privy too, but the rest of us only find out about through the grapevine. It is really a nice tikkun on the 2/3rds will die narrative that fits in well with this post. Apparently the Gaon said that only 1/3rd will die and another 1/3 will suffer grievously through either a plague or a series of plagues. Being an oral tradition, I don't have the specifics about whether it is one plague or a series of plagues. It could be the plague described in Zecharia 14:12 who meticulously describes (right there) the effects of nuclear blasts on the human body, but there is no way of knowing for sure....being an oral tradition. Yet, the Gaon seems to say that the Middle third aka the Beinonim of Mankind won't die but will suffer grievously. This can only take place in 5775 before Hoshana Rabba 5776 because until the 49th year since and including the Summer of Love is complete, the Middle Third is still hanging on at Mem Tet Sha'arei Tumah and has not fallen into the abyss which would actually happen if this were delayed even one more year. So case in point, it cannot be delayed for their benefit. And the Vilna Gaon seems to confirm this. Yet, like all those who repent and are guilty of something for which they should receive karet (spiritual excision), the remission of sin through repentance requires suffering (yissurim). So we have the Plague or plagues on the middle third.

Hi Dov. I don't know if my other comment went through or not. My question is when "that day" comes when we "hear Hashem's voice" telling us do not be afraid, stand back and watch what I will do. the time of your redemption has arrived, is this metaphoric and we are shown Hashem's voice through His actions or is it actually that we will hear His voice?

Leah: I believe that "HaShem's voice" in this matter is really the Voice of Eliyahu HaNavi who may very well herald the coming of Mashiach this coming Nissan, about one month away. As a herald we should get fair warning that he is coming and that we should repent of all of our sins before The Great and Awesome Day of the L-rd this coming Hoshana Rabba. It is worth noting that this coming Hoshana Rabba is 6 Days after the last Blood Moon in the tetrad. it will of course be on the first night of Sukkot. I am not convinced that the sun turning dark in Yoel 3 is the solar eclipse that will occur on Rosh HaShana in Tishrei because that solar eclipse will be seen by a marginal amt. of people in the world. I believe that it will be in Scandinavia. Perhaps more than any other European nation, the Swedes deserve what is coming to them, but I am not making any guesses about the nature of the "sun turning to darkness".

Yosef: The answer is very basic. I refer you to Parshat Nitzavim in Devarim (Deut. 29)

כא וְאָמַר הַדּוֹר הָאַחֲרוֹן, בְּנֵיכֶם אֲשֶׁר יָקוּמוּ מֵאַחֲרֵיכֶם, וְהַנָּכְרִי, אֲשֶׁר יָבֹא מֵאֶרֶץ רְחוֹקָה; וְרָאוּ אֶת-מַכּוֹת הָאָרֶץ הַהִוא, וְאֶת-תַּחֲלֻאֶיהָ, אֲשֶׁר-חִלָּה יְהוָה, בָּהּ. 21 And the generation to come, your children that shall rise up after you, and the foreigner that shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses wherewith the LORD hath made it sick;
כב גָּפְרִית וָמֶלַח, שְׂרֵפָה כָל-אַרְצָהּ--לֹא תִזָּרַע וְלֹא תַצְמִחַ, וְלֹא-יַעֲלֶה בָהּ כָּל-עֵשֶׂב: כְּמַהְפֵּכַת סְדֹם וַעֲמֹרָה, אַדְמָה וּצְבֹיִים, אֲשֶׁר הָפַךְ יְהוָה, בְּאַפּוֹ וּבַחֲמָתוֹ. 22 and that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and a burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, which the LORD overthrew in His anger, and in His wrath;

There we see that in the last generation before the physical or gashmi part of the final redemption would commence (the ingathering of Klal Yisrael to her Land and the greening of Eretz Yisrael), a nochri or one foreigner would come to describe the Land of Israel in stirring but depressing detail explaining that the Land was not fit for its inhabitants and that it was under a curse where it COULD NOT YET BE RETURNED TO THE DISPERSED OF iSRAEL. Therefore as long as the curse on Eretz Yisrael was in effect, the potential Yovel years were meaningless, and during our long exile we would not see the potential blessings of the Yovel year whose purpose is to return the Land to the possession of Klal Yisrael and ultimately to the descendants of the Shevatim. So who was this singular Nochri who showed up within 40 years of the First Great Aliyah, Chovevei Tziyon in the early 1880s? It would have to be someone well known in the gentile world who operated as a writer or a statesman between 1840 and 1880. Well, it was none other than Mark Twain who wrote the quintessential travelogue of the 19th Century called Pligrim's Progress whose name was later changed to Innocents Abroad. He spent 100 pages talking about the desolation of Eretz Yisrael. Yes, and that year was 1867. The potential Yovel year before 5678 (1918) was in 5629 (1869), and the Land was so desolate in the 1860s, there was very little to talk about since all of the vast majority of Torah observant Jews in E. Yisrael limited their residence to one of Four Holy cities (Yerushalayim, Chevron, Tzefat, and Tiveriya.) And there were basically NO Jewish agricultural communities until the early 1880s when the desert that Twain described started to bloom. So the first post curse potential Yovel year that came after this "Dor Acharon" curse in Parshat Nitzavim had concluded was in 5678. hope that helps you in your understanding. I will answer other questions, bli neder, after Shabbat. Shabbat Shalom.

Everyone on this blog who reads it knows that I am from Missouri, and yes Missouri is one far away land from Eretz Yisrael. Mr. Twain when he was a lad grew up in Hannibal, Missouri. Most people know this of course, but for me personally I had parnassah in the States buying and selling used textbooks at the end of the school year to be disbursed often after being rebound to other schools. My territory covered all of eastern Missouri, and Hannibal Middle School was one of my biggest customers. On the many occasions that I traveled about 90 to 100 miles north of St. Louis to Hannibal, I regularly stopped off at the boyhood home of Samuel Clemens, nearby the school, later to be knows as Mark Twain. And in the 19th Century to travel from America to Eretz Yisrael, it really took a hearty soul.

So while Mark Twain traveled to Eretz Yisrael in 1867, he published Innocents Abroad about the desolation of Eretz Yisrael in 1869, the potential Yovel year mentioned above. So there you go Yosef. There were no miracles in 1869, but it was the Dor Acharon of Eretz Yisrael's desolation as promised in the Torah.

Wow, it was one of the best selling travelogues of all time. When the Torah makes a promise, HaShem keeps the promise! Here is the Wikipedia first paragraph about the book.

The Innocents Abroad, or The New Pilgrims' Progress is a travel book by American author Mark Twain published in 1869 which humorously chronicles what Twain called his "Great Pleasure Excursion" on board the chartered vessel Quaker City (formerly USS Quaker City) through Europe and the Holy Land with a group of American travelers in 1867. It was the best-selling of Twain's works during his lifetime,[2] as well as being one of the best-selling travel books of all time.[3]

according to this website (brilliant Torah codes), MBD coming on 10 Tevet 5776. Looks like to me that 9 month will begin right after Shabbat Hagadol (somewhere around 10 Nissan after trying to split Yerushalaim Gd forbid ) till 10 Tevet 5776 it will be 9 month. I've heard that 3 month will be easy, the other 3 will be harder and the last 3 months (10 Tishri (Yom Kippur) till 10 Tevet)will be the hardest. Many will really will feel it after Simhat Torah, after our holidays finish.
I pray with all my heart that MBD will be here in this Nissan 5775. Otherwise don't lose your hope, the last test might be the hardest

In the Talmud we find a machloches (disagreement) on whether it is permitted to make aliya due to some gezeros (decrees) brought in the Gemara (Ketubos 111a; The Three Oaths - "Shalosh Shavuot"). In our times there are still Jewish streams (charedi) that say no to aliyah based on these oaths. However, it must be clear that from the day the nations of the world permitted the Jewish people to return the Land of Israel and establish a state of their own all the gezeros broght by the three oaths became nullified.

What better authority do we have than the pious Resh Lakish, who said outright that he hates his counterparts in Babylonia because they did not come en-masse, as a "wall," to the Land – and that they had they done so, the Holy Temple would not have been destroyed for the second time. Rav Zera, as well, who authored the above-mentioned passage in Ketubot regarding the Three Oaths, ended up changing his mind in favor of Aliyah, like the Sages of the Land of Israel. As we learn in the Medrash Rabba (Shir HaShirim 8).

Now we also find that one of the Gedoley HaDor of the charedi community comes out and says that it is even a mitzvah (command/obligation) to make aliya.

Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky: "Mitzvah To Make Aliyah!"

So dear brothers and sisters, please come now with all your assets and belongings because it you wait too long you may end up being thrown out with carrying only a small bag or C"V you may end up being annihilated as happened to our brothers and sisters in Europe not long ago. Life and health is dear and non replaceable - don't get stuck due to mamon (money/property) and comfortableness. Remember the Plague of Darkness (four-fifths died during the Plague of Darkness - Rashi, quoting the Medrash).

This is a reply to an extraordinary question, by Yosef: "According to the chart, Yovel years have had absolutely no relevance vis a vis Jewish historical events.... until the last century? Seems like a stretch to suddenly accord two coincidences out of three millennia with such significance."

The secret is in what we have dubbed the count of Chesed. There are three contributors to the count of Chesed. First, there is a cycle of 12 years, then there is a cycle of 19 years, then there is a cycle of 49 years. What follows is a summary.

When does the cycle of 19 years start? In 5309, after a Tikkun of the Arizal, and after which the secular breakthrough started. This breakthrough had many scientific consequences, but its ultimate political consequence was the estabishment of the Jewish State, the secular Jewish State. This is a Tikkun, because in the centuries before the Churban, Israel had a State, but it was steeped in Avodah Zarah. The Avodah Zarah was the real reason for the Churban, though this reason is never mentioned. Still, it had the teachings of Moshe as basis, uniquely so, and the long exile was a consequence, a positive consequence.

After the Tikkun of the secular Jewish State, the cycle of 49 years started as years of Chesed, in the year 5727. That year, 499 and 500 were thus reached, in other words, in the terms of the GR"A, טצ"ץ of the right was reached. There are three טצ"ץ counts, and you can read about them here. In the year 5776, the value 507, of the right, is reached. It is the beginning of a process of clarification regarding the nature of the Jewish State, which will avoid the trap of Avodah Zarah, but which will, of course, not stay secular.

If HaShem has moved up the conception of the final nine months from the tenth of Tevet 5775, three months later, to the tenth of Nissan 5775, you can be sure that the entire period of nine months will be B'Rachamim for those Jews who live here in Eretz Yisrael with purity and righteousness as a goal. I spoke about the passing of a tzaddik about two months ago named Dr. Ya'akov Tabak zt"l. It is an accepted Chaza"l from the time of the prophets that the climax of the Final Redemption will be during Sukkot of a Motzei Shmittah year. The Great and Awesome Day of HaShem should be therefore this coming Hoshana Rabbah 5776 after the last Blood Moon in the tetrad of Blood Moons. This last Blood Moon will also be preceded by a solar eclipse on Rosh HaShanah when the sun will turn to darkness (See Yoel 3). On Hoshana Rabbah, there will be a Day of Judgement on the Nations of the World that the world has never seen. There are many secrets about that day which are not yet known until they occur.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is coming to Congress with a very serious message in regard to dangerous deal that is being made between the west and Iran in regard to their nuclear program. This nuclear program has one aim and that is a second Holocaust on the Jewish People in 70 years!

And it's Parashat Balak!

Interestingly there are certain years (due to the wobble of the Hebrew/Lunar calendar) where the full moon of Pesach passes right through the center of the constellation Betulah (Virgo). Literally a birth. And the new moon does the same thing on Rosh Hashanah (crescent moon) Technically it's not a sign if you can't see it.

This Geulah will be "counter-intuitive." Yes, we pray that the PM makes a great speech, that he speaks up like Winston Churchill, something he actually does well (even if he often behaves like Neville Chamberlain). And then the Right wing goes on to victory and includes at least four if not more Yachad MKs. But the Geulah Sheleimah is not won through an election. The most likely result is that Obama and Co. will seek their revenge against Israel AFTER the elections by voting to divide the Land of Israel through the establishment of Palestine in the UN Sec. Council. They will likely try to murder the four time Prime Minister for getting in their way, at which point Bibi takes on the role of Mashiach ben Yosef after all. This brings them to the Holy Land to institute the changes that Livni and Buji could not institute through these elections. Then they come to battle against the Creator of Heaven and Earth. Notice the counter intuitive forces at work. We elect a right wing govt. so that HaShem goes to war against the nations of the world who rise up against His program. When we go to the polls, we likely might not have this in mind, but this IS the counter-intuitive forces at work in 5775. And perhaps this is an over-simplification of the twists and turns to expect over the next seven months. Do NOT expect a linear cause and effect to ensue.

I've never written here before,
My original name is Haim Zushe ben Yisrael Ze'ev but my name was highly suggested to be changed by a Mekubal I visited in Los Angeles in 2002 to be changed to Haim David ben Yishai - which I never used, because it has too many references to the Mashiach. The Mekubal suggested to me that this should be done because it was closer to my true spiritual tafkid and the many resemblances I have to King David. Right now you're thinking that I'm full of it, but I have nothing to prove, other then to share, and figure out, why I have so many exact resemblances to King David. My parents are still alive and they can back up anything I say.
Here it goes - My last name is Rachman, Rach in Aramaic means Kingship. Through my genealogy findings on my Father's side, we have found that quite possibly we reign from the house of David. My father is from Sephardic origins and my Mother is mostly German Ashkenazi. I'm born on Shavout of 5725, and I'm now 49 years old. I play the Harp, guitar and compose music, and have written 5 Books of short stories and poems over the last 30 years - mostly about the travails of Israel. I lived in Israel from 1994-1997 and I was a member of the Israel Poets Society. When I was born, my mother almost died of a rare disease and I almost died as a stillbirth baby. My life has been HIGHLY BIZARRE and ILLOGICAL, and by all rational, normal accounts, I shouldn't even be alive.
I am the only Shomer Shabbat person in my entire family, and most of my family has pushed me away and disowned me. I could literally write a 1000 page book about all the strange and crazy things that have happened to me up till now.
Right now I am a full time medical student in Portland, OR. but I'm not into it, don't want to stay in this country anymore and I want to return to Israel as soon as I can. I made Aliyah in 1996, but I ran out of money and had to return to Los Angeles. I'm in the same boat now, want to return to Israel, but have little funds to do so. I tried to reach Habayit Israeli, but they've closed their West Coast Offices till, guess what - the end of Sept 2015. Does anyone know anyone or a good way to return to Israel without any family support or little funding to do so. Can someone do a Mitzvah and help me or any suggestions?

Here is another gentile agreeing with Dov - author Joel Richardson

Richardson believes that the world is nearing a time of decision, especially when it comes to Israel.

“There is a global rise of antisemitism, including on American college campuses and even in some churches,” says Richardson. “We have antisemitism in Europe. There is global hostility to Jews whether they are Zionist or otherwise. This is a moment in time that requires men and women to take a very clear stand. Not to do so is immoral because contemporary antisemitism is so overt, so hostile, and spreading so fast.”

Richardson thinks such a stand is particularly important because of the scriptural significance of Netanyahu’s visit and the current crisis in American-Israeli relations.

“There is clearly prophetic significance in that Netanyahu is coming to the United States at Purim, a holiday that celebrates the Jews’ deliverance from the Persians, and our president is functioning as a supporter of the Haman of our age if not being a Haman himself,” he says. “I’m not a pessimist, I believe in the power of prayer, I’ll pray that America will repent and that Obama will be removed from office either through elections or sooner. It’s gotten to the point where his position in office is borderline existentially threatening to our closest ally in the region and to the people that is the most biblically relevant of any people or group in the world. Israel faces a regime that has made an open declaration of genocide against Jews and that is pursuing nuclear weapons. And the Iranian government believes it is fulfilling its own version of the end times. Christians need to start pay attention and make a choice to stand with Israel – before it’s too late.”

The original three day Fast of Esther was actually from the 13th through the 15th of Nissan. The Pesach Seder was cancelled that year for all of Klal Yisrael because of Esther's 3 day fast. The first feast with Haman when the King asked Esther, "What is your request? It shall be granted to you. What is your petition? "up to half the kingdom", it shall be granted to you.", actually occurred on the first night of Chol HaMoed Pesach, the 16th of Nissan. The 13th of Adar date spoken about in the WND article was the day chosen by Haman's lots for the destruction of every Jew in the world eleven months later. Yes, Bibi is speaking before Congress on the 12th of Adar, but the speech is not being directed at most (69% of) American Jews who have sadly reached the status of menuvalim by electing Obama twice and by not yet doing teshuvah for that act of ignominy. The Jews who are fighting Amalek in today's world, the vast majority of them live in Eretz Yisrael. And I think the speech will begin around 6pm Israel time which is after sundown on the 13th of Adar. So for the target audience of Jews who can potentially fight Amalek in the world, the speech will be on the 13th of Adar. For the gentiles in America who are most interested in the speech, it will be for them on the 12th of Adar because of the time difference. The speech was scheduled to be at prime time in Israel and around 11am? in the US. Sadly those righteous gentiles who most support Israel come from Congressional districts with maybe a handful or even maybe a minyan of Jews in their entire districts. Such is life. How many Jews can proudly claim that Louis Gohmert is their US Rep.?

From a long-time lurker and infrequent poster.

Saw this on PJ Media and thought it appropriate. It was written by Roger L. Simon. The link to the full article is below the blurb.

POSTSCRIPT: I don’t enjoy making predictions because I’m usually wrong, but this is what I suspect will transpire as of Sunday night, March 1. A deal ultimately will not be made. Khamenei never wanted one in the first place, only to mark time for more nuclear research. To make a deal would, for him, undermine too many years of hating America, undercutting the rationale for his hideous regime. BUT… Israel (specifically pushy Netanyahu), not Iran, will be blamed for the failure by the U.S. administration and its MSM minions, led by the New York Times. Iran will collude with this, dropping the proper hints — if it weren’t for those Israelis we would have had an agreement, but you know they can’t be trusted. The Republican presidential candidates will be swept up in this. They better be ready, but I fear they are not. They don’t impress me as a particularly sophisticated bunch on the international front, I’m sorry to say, and the Iranians know how to play disinformation-hardball almost as well as the Russians. I hope I’m wrong in all this. I hope Netanyahu knocks that same hardball out of the proverbial park and with it some sense into the American public. But I worry.

He did not hit a home run, but it may have been a triple with a successful slide into third base. He started off well and ended well, and that may be what counts....however it is supposed to count. Remember, the purpose of this speech from a Geulah perspective is

1. to help him win the election so that

2. he enrages the powers that be in Europe and in the White House to take some sort of revenge against him.

Reading many of the commentaries on our PM's speech and come to agree with Dov's statements above.

"...the purpose of this speech from a Geulah perspective is

1. to help him win the election so that

2. he enrages the powers that be in Europe and in the White House to take some sort of revenge against him"

The PM's speech won't change anything. The US administration will continue its path together with the Europeans to sign an agreement.

May the Jewish people wake up as the did in the times of Mordecai HaYehudi and Ester HaMalka - especially the Jews of the Land of Israel. Opposition leader MK Yitzhak Herzog was unimpressed by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s speech before Congress, claiming on Tuesday evening that Israel has been left isolated, even after the speech. He is not aware of how right he is - we are the Ivri'im.

יִתְיַצְּבוּ מַלְכֵי־אֶרֶץ וְרוֹזְנִים נֽוֹסְדוּ־יָחַד עַל־ה' וְעַל־מְשִׁיחֽוֹ
תהילים ב:ב

The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against His anointed.

We are called Ivri'im (Hebrews), because we inherited that legacy of Abraham. We are a lonely people, persecuted throughout most of history. Generation after generation tried to convince us we are wrong. Sometimes those efforts appeared polite and more often they were accompanied by the sword. To be a Jew historically meant trouble. It meant exclusion from guilds, second class citizenship at best, and being the scapegoat for society's problems. We must realize that the hatred of the nations of the world stems from the fact that we are different. Others view us as the “ugly duckling” amongst the nations.

There is very little we can do to change the attitude of the nations of the world. All the various “isms” that well-meaning Jews created to make us more popular, or to give us equal status with the other nations, have failed. We are a nation of Ivri'im. We stand alone. Empires have risen and fallen, and the laws of nature would have had the same happen to us, but we're still here. We remained and remain to this day apart and unique in our faith and customs. We maintain our national language and distinct identity, and despite our small numbers, have persevered in a way that no other people have or could have.

I hope that everyone is having a productive fast of Esther. It is really the fast of the War against Amalek on the 13th of Adar. The Fast of Esther was during Nissan as mentioned above. Yet, we call it the Fast of Esther in order not to confuse ourselves that we might need to fast before and during Pesach so that Esther's mission would be blessed when she appeared before the King of Persia. We want to distinguish the commemoration Esther's fast from Pesach because there is a fast just before seder night for those who are Firstborn called the Fast of the Firstborn (to thank HaShem that they were spared while the Egyptian firstborn were not spared.)

For most, this fast is broken after Megillat Esther reading after Tzeit Kochavim.

For those who are having an especially burdensome time fasting right now, the Fast is officially over around 6:15 pm here in Israel about 35 minutes after sunset. At that time in order to concentrate on the Megillah and not feel faint, drink a cup of water or cola and/or eat a piece of cheese to perk you up to concentrate on the Megillah's every word. The mitzvah of hearing the Megillah in at atmosphere of simcha and along with one's ability to concentrate on the words trumps not eating until after the Megillah is read. Ask your Rav to make sure that you can break the fast when it is dark outside but before the Megillah reading, of course.

May the rotten and burn in hell, enemies and haters of Israel!

Just in time for Purim, the Jewish holiday celebrating the redemption of the Jewish people from plots of genocide in ancient Persia, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was reportedly hospitalized in critical condition on Wednesday. A7

According to Arab media reports cited by Israel Hayom, Khamenei was urgently brought to a hospital in Tehran after several of his bodily systems had already failed.

The reports add that the 76-year-old supreme leader of the Islamic regime has undergone surgery and remains in critical condition.

Recently it has been reported that he was suffering from prostate cancer which had spread to additional parts of his body, and due to his poor health condition he had largely ceased taking part in public events.

The hospitalization comes just days after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed Congress on Tuesday to warn of the existential threat to Israel and the world that Iran poses, urging America to avoid the deal being formed on Iran's nuclear deal ahead of a March 31 deadline for talks.

Lending some credence to the reports is the fact that Khamenei's official Twitter account hasn't been updated since Netanyahu's speech on Tuesday, when he wrote the "US is now facing a #dilemma. It should either stop unlimited services to #Israel or they’ll lose more face in the world."

Benjamin never did and never would bow down to Esau!

That is what Haman, a descendant of Amalek and Esau, represented. Mordechai, a descendant of Benjamin, would not or could not bow down to him.This “Benjamin attitude” born and bred in the land of Israel could not countenance this "enemy of G-d”.

It is not coincidental that during the week wherein we read the story of Amalek and then enter into the festival of Purim, another Benjamin is being positioned. He is being asked by destiny to stand straight and not bow down to all the pressures by the spirit of Amalek which abounds in the world. He was positioned to stand before the American Congress and as a result before the whole world.

It is there that he spoke out against the evils being planned by the Persian Hamans of our day. Evils that are being sanctioned and/or ignored by those stymied by the spirit of Amalek.

With Hashem’s help this Benjamin will succeed as well.

New York City joins school districts in other states, including New Jersey, Massachusetts and Vermont, that similarly observe Muslim holidays, according to a news release from Farina's office.

Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha join other religious holidays already on New York's public school calendar.

1:15 That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.

1:16 I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.

1:17 And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.

Over at yaak, mention is made of Esav vs Yishmael. Please discuss: in view of Iran's claim that all the Mideast is Iranian, how can they say that? There is Shia vs Sunni..

How will it likely play out that the west goes against Yishmail? Also, Obama is threatening to take apart Israel in a renewed aggressive attack for the Palestinians after the election!

The Vilna Gaon clarified the situation further. He said that of the 70 original physical nations of the world, 35 are in Edom's spiritual sphere of influence and 35 are in Yishma'el's spiritual sphere of influence. One can even clarify it further by pointing out that of the 35 in Yishma'el's spiritual sphere of influence, many like India (Hodu) are under the influence of the Bnai Keturah and not Yishma'el exactly. So of Yishma'el's 35 nations some are really under the influence of Avraham's 2nd wife. For those who say that Keturah was really Hagar, then it is possible to say that 35 nations are under Hagar's spiritual influence, not just Yishma'el's influence. But the modern Muslim countries are most certainly under Yishma'el's influence, all 57 of them. Remember how Barack Obama said that he has now visited 57 States? Perhaps he was thinking about Indonesia (where he grew up) which is one of those 57 Muslim countries.

Secretary of State Kerry's visit to Saudi Arabia.

Before Kerry’s arrival in Saudi Arabia for talks, the Saudis received visits, in quick succession, from the Presidents of Egypt and Turkey as well as the Prime Minister of Pakistan.

Instead of Kerry having a chance to obtain Saudi support for the nuclear “deal” being negotiated by the Obama administration with Iran, Kerry may have received an ultimatum from the Saudis–who were presenting a united front position on the matter from Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan and the Saudis. I suspect that all these nations told Sec. Kerry that they oppose the deal the USA seems poised to conclude with Iran, and that they will further all become nuclear powers if the USA naively allows Iran to continue to pursue its nuclear weapons program. It is my view that the aforementioned national heads-of-state visited Saudi Arabia prior to Sec. Kerry’s arrival so Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia could all present a common demand to Sec. Kerry vis-à-vis Iran’s nuclear program. Following on the heels of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech to a joint session of the US Congress opposing the pending deal negotiated by the Obama administration with Iran regarding its nuclear program, I think Sec. Kerry received an “earful” of objections to the US negotiating plan with Iran, and that these Islamic nations all joined Israel in opposing any deal that allows Iran to continue its nuclear program and obtain nuclear weapons. Quoting Israel’s ambassador to the USA: “When the Israelis and Arabs are on the same page, people should pay attention.”

The most ominous and immediate effect of a bad deal concluded between Iran and the USA on nuclear weapons for Iran may be that Pakistan will transfer several nuclear weapons to Saudi Arabia with relative haste. As the link below discusses, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia “may have just renewed a secret nuclear weapons pact” which allows Saudi Arabia to be supplied with an unknown number of Pakistani nuclear weapons if Iran obtains such weapons. Indeed, if the Obama administration “caves”‘ and allows Iran a path to nuclear weaponry, Saudi Arabia may quickly obtain nuclear weapons from Pakistan “off the shelf” and become the first nuclear power in the Mideast region in order to deter the Iranians whenever they obtain nuclear weapons.

At his visit to Saudi Arabia, Sec. Kerry also heard from the representatives of other Sunni Islamic nations (Kuwait, the UAE, Oman, Bahrain and Qatar) that they are all also “concerned about Iran’s intentions in Iraq, Syria and Yemen.” The Shiite Iranians now dominate the ruling powers and/or central governments in each of these nations. I’m sure that they are also worried about Iran’s nuclear program.

It appears that Sec. Kerry will be informing President Obama that his imminent nuclear deal with Iran could unite all the Sunni Islamic nations in the region against Obama’s planned deal with Iran. If the Israelis have to strike Iran’s nuclear program in the future to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, Israel will not be acting alone. One unintended consequence of Obama’s weak foreign policy on Iran is that it may have the effect of hastening an Israeli-Sunni Islamic alliance in the Mideast. If the nations threatened by Iran have to join together in launching a preemptive attack on Iran’s nuclear program, it may be the weak policies of the Obama administration which will have caused it to happen.

We know from Ezekiel 38:5 that Persia (“Iran”) will be part of the Gog-Magog alliance, but this prophecy does not mention Egypt, Ishmaelite or Edomite nations as being part of the Gog-Magog alliance. It appears that we are seeing that current geopolitics are causing the prophesied arrangement of nations into their respective alliances to fall into place.

YNet News: “Analysis: Now that he is free of electoral pressures and has been challenged by Netanyahu, Obama is making it clear to Israel and its supporters that the presidential treatment of the Palestinian issue is about to take on a much more aggressive attitude.

When US President Barack Obama appointed Dr. Robert Malley as the person in charge of the Middle East at the White House, he gave the finger not only to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but also to the Jewish establishment in the United States. ”

Retribution for the speech is on the way in the form of an anti-Semitic Mid East coordinator.

In 2006 Dr Malley commented on the Hamas victory in Gaza:

“If dealt with wisely, the Islamists’ victory could present an opportunity for the United States to promote its core interests without betraying its core principles”
“The more Hamas exercises government responsibility, the less it is likely to revert to violence.”
“Hamas, has deep loyalty, it has a charity organization, a social branch – it’s not something you could defeat militarily either.”

Even the name Hamas means violence in Hebrew. The only reason for Hamas existence is the extermination of Israel.

Hamas has a friend.

The USA will become "toast"!

Front Page Magazine: “In yet another crass attempt to register its anger at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s courageous and truthful speech on Iran to a joint session of Congress last week, the Obama administration promoted an Israel basher to serve as the Special Assistant to the President and White House Coordinator for the Middle East, North Africa and the Gulf Region.

His name is Robert Malley, who most recently has been serving as National Security Council (NSC) Senior Director for Iran, Iraq, Syria and the Gulf States. Effective April 6, 2015, he will, in his new position, have responsibility for an area encompassing Israel, Palestinian territories, North Africa and the Persian Gulf.

National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice, who publicly blamed Prime Minister Netanyahu for conduct “destructive” of the historic relationship between the United States and Israel, made the appointment announcement last Friday. She called Malley “one of my most trusted advisers” and “one of our country’s most respected experts on the Middle East.”

Robert Malley was foreign policy adviser to then-presidential candidate Barack Obama in 2007, and was fired from his campaign team in 2008 because of his notorious ties to Hamas, the PLO and other jihadist, anti-Israel groups.

Malley was also part of the 2001 American negotiating team that dealt with Yasser Arafat at Camp David:

Malley was called a great man by Yasser Arafat
Malley blamed Israel for the failures of the Camp David negotiations
Malley co-wrote a series of anti-Israel articles with Hussein Agha-a former Arafat adviser

The Obama team is a perfect example of God’s patience. Based on Genesis 12:3, the USA should be toast.

and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.”

The secular state is dying. What seems most obvious from this coming election is just that. The secular state is dying with no one to lead it except for menuvalim (reprobates) of various stripes. And what is funny is that the reprobates will not be able to form a working coalition. So if Bibi does not win, which seems more and more likely, then there is a strong possibility that there will be NO govt. There would most likely be a "blocking coalition", a negative, we don't want Bibi coalition including the anti-Zionist Arabs.

I will know that Yemot HaMashiach has arrived when these three things have been achieved or are in the process of occurring

1. Truth with be popular in the world and not scarce. The religions of Edom and Yishmael will be receding in the world if not already non-existent. Jewish courts will be re-established in all the cities of Israel replacing the secular courts along with the re-establishment of the Sanhedrin for all of Klal Yisrael.

2. The Holy Temple will either be already built or will be in the process of being built over a 6 or 7 year period. This would include finding and slaughtering a kosher red heifer and finding the Ark of the Covenant and preparing it for Hashra'at Shekhinah.

3. There will be no more war in the world, and the origin of Mankind's spirituality will emanate from Yerushalayim....and they will call it Yerushalayim, not just Al Quds which does mean the Holy City. So that is a fine moniker even if the name is Yerushalayim.

I can list a bunch of other simanim, but these three will do for starters. And as of now, none of these three things are occurring. So the Messianic Era has yet to commence even though its advent is closer than ever.

Also I am a firm believer that the return of Jews to the Land of Israel in large numbers that began in the early 1880s is definitely part of the process of the Final Redemption. But so far the ingathering of exiles has been an entirely physical phenomenon even if living a Torah lifestyle in Eretz Yisrael is easier than it has ever been at least in the last 1950 years. So so far the redemption has been gashmi and not ruchani. Our courts, our media, and so many in our govt. are from or are controlled by the dregs of humanity. So while HaShem has brought together the Dry Bones from our exile on Yom HaAtzma'ut (5th of Iyar) 5708 here in Eretz Yisrael, Yechezkel's prophesy on the Four Winds (the ruchniyut aspect of redemption) has yet to occur. In short, we are still in Galut and we are still controlled by the whims and directives of other nations in the world. So in many ways we have yet to achieve independence. After Mankind finishes trying to dictate a final outcome here in Israel which is not to HaShem's liking, miracles will occur which will sharply curtail their attempt to tell us what to do. As a matter of fact, they will be whipped for trying. Then and only then can the Messianic Era and rule of Mashiach ben David begin.

Dov, are you saying that you believe that our geula is dependent on Mankind ? I say, just like in the last Gaza war, bH first the miracles will occur and then all the simanim that you listed will be appear [why do you think it has to take a few years?].

a little bit of kabbalah: At the moment of geula, the Source, the essence of everything] will reveal itself, Hashem Himself, and all of mankind will realize that Hashem was always really and only where no one was looking for Him.

We, as opposed to, with all due respect, Moshe rabenu and all the other prophets [perceived only a ray/emanation of Hashem's light], will see Hashem Himself and just a divine emanation of Him [''and your Teacher shall no longer be concealed from you, and your eyes shall see your Teacher.''- Is.30:20]!!

On that day, Hashem will be One and His Name will be One.

Evil in this wold only lasts as long as it isn't illuminated by a Divine ray, but when Hashem Himself will stop hiding himself, evil will disappear like a match in front of the sun. [it WON'T take years]

Our yechida soul [our infinite life force] level will shine constantly.[now only shines when [if] doing acts of self-sacrifice, mesirus nefesh] With it we'll be able to enter ''eternal life''[the world to come].

The miracles will incomparably bigger than in the exodus from Egypt.

Hashem will fight for us.

I say the 2/3 of the world...nevua won't happen. Am yisrael has already suffered enough and done teshuva,
and if we haven't then please explain to me the reason for all of last summer's nissim, here

We Am Yisrael as a whole are already zoche bH but some things still have to happen in the world with the amim, and that is why Moshiach has not appeared yet. Hashem will not wait till the last minute to redeem us because that will be a chilul H [written in the midrash], just as it was in yetziat mitzrayim.

I would rather say that we, the Jewish people as a whole, still haven't learned from the past. Still confused about our task nd goal in this world. Below an example of that - an article by Phyllis Chesler' Emerita Professor of Psychology at City University of New York.

"Given the hot and relentless nature of anti-Semitism/anti-Zionism today, should the world’s Jews simply pack up and leave wherever they are on Planet Earth and pioneer space travel? Should they go to Israel or to America? Given all the genocidal threats made against the Jewish state, should Israel pioneer space travel so that those Jews (and our allies) who believe that wherever we are has become “Egypt” can leave a world in which Jew-hatred has become the signature calling card of Islamic terrorism and anti-Western barbarism? - - - ...two young French Jews insisted that France was their country—why should they have to leave? “Jews must stand their ground wherever they may be. We can’t be pushed around anymore.”".

This Jewish professor suggest:

Should Israel pioneer space travel?

I have two pieces of very good news.

1. Google searches for Naftali Bennett in Hebrew have been surging since this past Friday. This is a very good indication that many of the undecideds are deciding to go with Bayit Yehudi in the waning days of the campaign. During the 2013 campaign Surge analysis provided some insight into Ya'ir Lapid's jump into the limelight on election day. This time the surge is with Bayit Yehudi, and since it was on Shabbat and Motzei Shabbat, that would mean that a lot of secular Israelis are taking Naftali very seriously.

2. Also Bibi's debate with Buji Space between his Ears on Channel 2 on Sunday morning was a real shocker showing how commanding Bibi can be and how much of a dodo bird Buji really is. Since Channel 2 is a leftwing bastion, there may be some significant shifting away from the Dodo Bird and the Witch of Eindor toward Likud at the last minute.

We shall see. So I am holding off on writing another post because so much is in flux right now that it would be superfluous to write about something whose result is completely an unknown. I will continue to comment right here for the next 36 hrs.

Otherwise, the wicked witch, if she doesn't win, will start a few lawsuits to disrupt the vote outcome.

I just voted for Yachad- HaAm Itanu. Now go vote right now for either Yachad or Bayit Yehudi. There really are, at this juncture, no other righteous choices to make. I say this understanding that more secular minded people will vote again for Likud, but many will vote for Bayit Yehudi instead. Likud as imperfect as it is is lightyrs. ahead of choices for other secular parties.

UTJ is already on record saying publicly that they would sit with Buji and Meretz in order to get money for yeshivot and the reinstatement of higher levels of child support. I really don't want to use the word that comes to mind for those with a kipah who would do that or who would vote for that. Let me safely say that a decision to vote for that is not a righteous decision. As far as an Aryeh Deri lead Shas, you decide if someone who has taken shochad should be the leader of a Torah Party, and just as important, do you trust what he would do tomorrow morning? I am sticking with Eli Yishai and Baruch Marzel on this one. I happen to believe that Eli Yishai is a tzaddik. Creating his new party and uniting with Otzma has been a G-dsend.

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

I chose Yachad over Bayit Yehudi for another very specific reason. Both parties believe in Shleimut haAretz (the wholeness of the Land), but only Yachad believes in Shleimut haTorah (the completeness of the Torah) on an equal footing with Shleimut haAretz. Naftali Bennett has gone on an inclusiveness campaign to bring as many secular Israelis into his camp as possible based on the issue of Shleimut HaAretz. That is fine and dandy, but it has come at the expense of Shleimut HaTorah, I believe, even if the majority of his support to take on the entire world on this important issue comes from G-d fearing Jews. So both parties are vitally important, and may both do well in this election!!

Now I am going to the Officers of Mashiach ben David election and post-election party next to Kever David this evening being hosted by Rav Yitzchak Ginsburgh Shlit"a. See ya all later!

Reb Dov,

Even though I haven't posted in the last month or so, I've been keeping up with your great posts and the commentary as best I can.

I agree with your conclusion that Yachad is the only party that doesn't choose between Torah and Land; therefore, I also voted for them.

I shuddered to think that with all Bibi's great words, he still has the history of negating so many of them with his actions - which have more in common with Tzipi & Buji's philosophy than with anything Likud has on its charter. But if he still wins (and I think Tzipi gave him a better chance last night when she said she wouldn't share the chair with Buji after all), he'll have a better partner in Yachad than anyone else - that is, if he really wants to go G-dward.

The only reason Bennett stands out better than Eli Yishai now is because the former speaks decent English. I haven't heard Mr. Yishai's English, so I have no idea how he would come across to Americans. But on some level that shouldn't matter because, in the long run, people worldwide will need to understand his Hebrew - particularly if our scenario turns out as written here.

In any case, someone in the government should be there at the door when Mashiach arrives to take over and make the change to Torah-based governance.

I am more interested on what "deals" Gimmel will make tomorrow morning to get in the govt. than the gedolim that support it. If the "deals" do not guarantee sheleimut haAretz, then our lives here will be more endangered. We have traveled down this road in 2005 when Gimmel enabled Sharon's Govt. and therefore allowed the Gaza Disengagement to continue to its awful outcome. Sorry, I am not going to parse words here because someone's gedolim differs with my conclusions. My gedolim would never support such a travesty. Rav Shalom Arush Shlit"a and I cried together over the evacuation from Gaza in his office at Chut Shel Chessed Yeshivah one month before the Churban in 2005 while Litzman and Gafni went to hotels at the Dead Sea to avoid being at the votes about the horrible fashla to begin with. They were in Sharon's coalition after all... How many more Jews will have to die here over the the next possible evacuation, G-d forbid?? How many missiles will be pointed at the Left Coast within eyesight of the Azriella Towers from the Water Tower in Beit El??? Sorry, but please do not vote for Gimmel. They would sit with those who would do just that.

I only figured this out AFTER I voted: The big test this time was to see who would perceive that, for the first time ever, the Israeli elections offered a party that ran on both a Torah Sh'leimah and Eretz Yisrael Sh'leimah platform. The bigger question, of whether they would actually carry it out given enough votes, I'm leaving aside for now.

I would have had a much harder time choosing if Eli Yishai had not invited Baruch Marzel aboard. I might not have voted at all, because without them both this unique event would not have happened.

Some of you will likely say I haven't been here long enough to be sick of Israeli politics, but sick I am. I have heard from people who were called by pollsters that when they said they were voting for Yachad, they were greeted with confusion and even near-hostile reactions. According to one comment I read on Tomer Devorah today,

"The polls have been obviously rigged. I know many people who have been contacted by the polls and when they answer with "Yachad" (not even an option given to them in the form they were asked- Yachad is Eli Yishai/Baruch Marzel's party) the pollster doesn't seem to know what to do with the answer. Not surprisingly, Yachad has not even ranked on any of the official "polls" even though everyone I know will be voting for them."
(emphases mine -CDG. And I don't know the commenter, styling herself "Israeli Woman." And, no, I didn't get the call.)

Even if a particular answer isn't on the form, don't they know that writing in an answer is a legitimate response in a poll? Or am I behind the times and no one writes in any more?

How can anyone trust marketing or political research if the people behind it are breaking all the rules?

I hope we won't have to vote again because Mashiach will have already arrived!

I voted twice today. Before everyone pounds on the fact that I cheated, I should tell you that I voted in two elections: One for this world and one for Yemot HaMashiach. This was a way so that Rav Yitzchak Ginsburgh could begin the process of actualizing what will be existent in the near future. So we may as well treat it as an existential reality even if at this time it seems like a laughable pipe dream. So we had a vote in Heichal David HaMelekh right next to King David's tomb for the officers of to serve in the "Directorate" or Hanhallah in Hebrew of Mashiach ben David. We got to vote for two officers out of a list of candidates. I believe that the election for these officers will be on the Internet tomorrow for those who join the Derekh Chaim Movement on their website. There were lots of speakers tonight at the meeting. Rav Ginsburgh spoke for a half hour at the end of the meeting by video. Among the speakers for instance was the Rosh HaYeshivah of the Yitzhar Yeshivah, Rav Yitzchak Shapira. Suddenly after a bunch of speakers had spoken, in walked Baruch Marzel to speak for about fifteen minutes. After speaking he went and voted himself for the second time today, this time for the Officers of Mashiach ben David. We were amongst good company tonight.

I will be reading Rav Ginsburgh's book, "Rectifying the State of Israel: A Political Platform Based on Kabbalah" in order to have a better understanding on what has to be accomplished in the near future. Rav Ginsburgh like myself is a Chassidic personality type from St. Louis, Missouri. not many of us around in St. Louis who have not fallen to wanting to be loved by the world syndrome. We are rare birds.

It seems very clear to me that Secular Zionism died tonight. The only reason why Bibi may be close or even ahead is because of the massive shift of religious Zionists toward Likud away from Bayit Yehudi in order to increase his/Bibi's Mandate count. And Buji and Tizppy are depending on at least 5 or 6 Mandates provided them from Arabs bused into vote by Barack Obama's appointed NGOs. (V15 for instance) However this turns out, it is obvious to me that Secular Zionism is now a corpse.

So again to reiterate, We did NOT win....We survived! The party of zombies or of kapos who would have manned concentration camps if given the opportunity was defeated. Shame on anyone who would have formed a coalition with them had they won.

My wife is now making me clean for Pesach. So I will be brief. This is the end of the physical redemption of Israel without the input of the Spiritual redemption on top of it. We have had a 98 year run of ingathering Dry bones and putting on flesh, sinews, and skin. Bibi represents the end of this process, and this month of Adar 5775 represents the end of this process on the timeline, too. We are now standing erect waiting for the 4 Ruchot to infuse us with the Spirit of G-d. It has not happened yet, Proof: Look at Bibi Netanyahu's speech before Congress on the 12/13th of Adar. He quoted a pasuk at the end of his speech, but he ONLY QUOTED HALF OF THE PASUK!! Listen to the speech again if you want. He gave kavod to Moshe Rabbeinu being the author of that pasuk: חִזְקוּ וְאִמְצוּ, אַל-תִּירְאוּ וְאַל-תַּעַרְצוּ מִפְּנֵיהֶם Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be affrighted at them;. Notice he omits the second half of the pasuk because more than anything, Bibi represents the end of the physical redemption of Israel to the maximum that it can be accomplished without the obvious input of G-d Almighty. This is why when we first heard the speech, I said that he hit a triple and not a home run. The key ingredient of saying that G-d is the securer of His promises to uphold us was missing. It is the void that G-d willing will be filled over the next 6 1/2 months.

For here is the entire pasuk:
חִזְקוּ וְאִמְצוּ, אַל-תִּירְאוּ וְאַל-תַּעַרְצוּ מִפְּנֵיהֶם: כִּי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ, הוּא הַהֹלֵךְ עִמָּךְ--לֹא יַרְפְּךָ, וְלֹא יַעַזְבֶךָּ. {ס} 6 Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be affrighted at them; for the LORD thy God, He it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.' {S}

The fact that the EU "congratulated" Bibi today for winning a fourth term is a ploy, a ruse.

His promise to oppose a Palestinian State as long as Islamic extremism is on the loose in the world (both the Sunni and the Shi'ite variety) is now basically sealed in blood. Any talk of two state solns. from him would now be a joke. He can't do it again. The EU knows that Bibi is now "trapped" by his promises. So does the Nachash in the White House.

White House Castigates Netanyahu For 'Marginalizing Arab-Israelis'

In a tepid acknowledgement of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's reelection on Wednesday, the White House also castigated Netanyahu and his Likud party for urging supporters to match a large turn out by Arab Israelis.

"The United States and this administration is deeply concerned by decisive rhetoric that seeks to marginalize Arab-Israeli citizens," Earnest said.

"It undermines the values and democratic ideals that have been important to our democracy and an important part of what binds the United States and Israel together."

"And I can tell you that these are views the administration intends to communicate directly to the Israelis."

Well if this isn't about the biggest piece of BS Ive ever heard, and their answer to the election... well, well, well. Dont forget what I posted yesterday about cancelling the gas deal and deciding Iran and Hezbulla aren't terrorist organizations.

Shaul HaMelekh was a son of Kish. Shim'i was a descendant of Kish. They were therefore uncle and nephew to each other, maybe one or two generations removed.... No wonder why Shim'i cursed King David! David replaced his uncle! Someone better warn Bibi...Spooky....

Here's another link concerning Shimi ben Geira:

In particular, this:

Shimi ben Gera , who came out cursing David in his flight and throwing stones and mud on the king and his men, was far from being some lowly foul-mouthed ruffian. He was a prominent member of the family of Saul as well as head of the Sanhedrin (Rashi on ch 16 v 10).

CDG, Yerushalayim

Dov's: The fact that the physical aspect of Mashiach ben Yosef is alive, minus his spiritual aspect, has now convinced me that the rest of this process will be b'Rachamim. Od Yosef Chai!! We are alive!

Please Dov do you mean the rest of the geula process (the rest of the 9 mo ?) will be b'Rachamim in Israel and the rest of the world ?

The outcome of the election came out as surprise to everyone, Netanyahu and the Likud included. How did the exit polls get it so wrong?

It has been said on this blogg several times - H' will intervene and surprise everyone. And it is obvious that that is what He did.

Now we will see how He will act and react to the nations efforts to destroy His people and His Land as said here by several of the references post the election.

The vultures are starting to form overhead, they can't even wait until the election process is really over. I got so mad reading O's diatribe in defense of the Arabs in Israel. They dont belong here anyway.

We have to annex right away and apply sovereignty and then let Obama decide to invade Israel! Bring it on Obama!!! Israelis can get very very angry.

Isn't it only the spiritual level of MBY that's alive after the gashmiut/ego removed? I believe we are in that process right now of revelation.

Shimi may have come from a prominent chamula but he was nothing to brag about - in this day and age he would be referred to as an arse - tartei mashma.

US Reportedly Considering Recognizing ‘Palestinian’ State

Sources within the US government told the New York Times on Wednesday night that American is considering supporting the UN Security Council’s decision to define the borders of a potential “Palestinian” state as per the 1967 state lines.

The reports indicate that the move is being considered following Prime Minister Netanyahu’s statement earlier in the week, according to which he would oppose the establishment of a “Palestinian” state in Judea and Samaria, as well as the PM’s statement on the high rate of voting within the Arab population.

Anon.: The spiritual side of Mashiach ben Yosef seems to be rotting away in an American prison for 28 years? I can't keep up. If Bibi keeps showing up at the Kotel every morning with talit and tefillin, he is welcome to join the spiritual side. By the way, he is a Levi son of Bentzion HaLevi along with everything else. And Zech. 12 does say that the House of Levy will also be set apart for mourning too. I pray that we don't have to mourn anything regarding him anytime soon. The fact that Shim'i was a pain and a troublemaker along with being the head of the Sanhedrin and the teacher of Shlomo HaMelekh points to him needing a great tikun.

And yes, I do believe that the Geulah will be b'Rachamim for tzaddikim and those who repent who live in Eretz Yisrael. I can't speak about Chu"l. In Chu"l hashgachah pratit is more complicated and often happens indirectly and it is not as easy to be discerned. Also when Onesh comes on the nations that gather against Yerushalayim, will one neighborhood of Jews be spared while other neighborhoods in the same city are demolished? Then there is the issue of how the Umot HaOlam turn on the Jews in their midst while they are being judged. It is more complicated in Chu"l. Remember to have food storage in a country location with arms to defend it along with a group of like-minded people (Jews and righteous gentiles alike). Be prepared when the leftist East Coast American cities become uninhabitable to leave those places for more spiritually healthy places (known in the US as redstates) like Tennessee and Alabama until Mashiach ben David can send planes to fetch you. There will be an interim period for which it is best to be prepared.

Dov. According to HaRav Nir ben Artzi the Shechina has left the Galus. Assuming this is correct we may question if the is a hashgachah pratis for the Jews of Galus.

I think we have Shimi as PM who is really Flip flop Bibi. He just announced he wants a peaceful TWO STATE solution. I'm afraid that someone is going to be so angry that ....

Keep in mind what he actually said before the election, paraphrasing: "The world has changed. It is not the more peaceful settled place that it was in 2009 at the time of the Bar Ilan speech. ISIS is on the loose in the world. Iran is gobbling up countries. And Hamas has united with Abbas. As long as this situation persists (which is for the rest of Olam HaZeh), there can be no two state solution. If the world were to ever settle down in a new era of never never land, we can talk and hammer out a deal when the Palestinians begin to behave like Canadians."

If I am wrong about the above, please correct me. Believe me, this is NOT what the Umot HaOlam want to hear. They believe that if they divide Yerushalayim, all those other problems that Bibi referred to would disappear. So that when they finally do come with troops, they will find that the opposite is what occurs when the Amalekites from Europe and Ammon and Moav amongst the Pals. kill each other as happened during the reign of King Yehoshafat in 2nd Chronicles 20, the paradigm referred to in the Book of Yoel.
