Is This the Dawning of the Age of the Water-vapor Bucket?

HT: Shirat Devorah

The world is dying.  Economically two forces in the world are leading to total collapse.  China who was growing at 10% a year is no longer growing at that pace, and now all of their reckless investments, such as in cities that they built where almost no one lives are coming to roost.  At the same time, the compact between Amalek in Edom (Obama) and Amalek in Persia could likely lead to the greatest oil glut and collapse of price that the world has ever known.  At a time when demand for oil is shriveling up like a dead flower, every nation that has shale and fracking in people's backyards is flooding the marketplace with what is becoming almost worthless crude.  In the spirit of what is happening, and in the Spirit of Parshat HaMon which should be recited tomorrow afternoon (Tues, 9th of Shevat 5776), I would like to present the following thought experiment in part based on Shirat Devorah's latest post on the planetary alignment which starts tomorrow night on the tenth of Shevat.

Since the world's parnassah was only taken care of through 5775 according to the Alter Rebbe of Lubavitch because of the 1775 shekels of silver in the Courtyard of the Mishkan in Parshat Pekudei, then by Tu B'Shevat 5776, the parnassah of the Wicked must cease in this world.  The 1775 shekels of silver in the courtyard have given parnassah in Olam HaZeh for 1775 years beyond the year 4000.  The year 4001 began the 2000 year period of Mashiach's coming, but for the last 1775 years of that period we have had the parnassah of Olam HaZeh from Parshat Pekudei.  We all know that the righteous and the beinoni only recieve the peirot on their good deeds in Olam HaZeh.  Their Qeren Qayemet (the trunk and the branches) of their reward is in Olam HaBa.  The wicked, though, receive both their Qeren Qayemet (the principle reward) and their peirot in this world.  

Water is decreed on the world on Hoshana Rabba.  It "officially" begins to fall on Zayin Cheshvan.  All winter long the fruit trees in E. Yisrael absorb water to feed the tree itself.  Only on Rosh Chodesh Shevat does the water begin to feed the fruit for the coming year.  So while our parnassah is decreed on Hoshana Rabba, we don't begin to see it until Tu B'Shevat when the water of fruit trees reaches the place where the fruit will eventually be (the point of Chanitah, "Budding").  The wicked on the other hand receive everything, principle + peirot, beginning on Zayin Cheshvan.  In the year of the Redemption, the wicked will still receive or have received their Keren Kayemet and their Peirot from the previous year from Zayin Cheshvan until Rosh Chodesh Shevat 5776.  Starting on Rosh Chodesh Shevat, the faux economy that they, the Wicked, have constructed since the financial collapse of 5768, the last Shmittah year, begins to fall apart.  If this is the year of destiny, we will know by Tu B'Shevat when the D'li the water bucket, the mazal for Shevat, pours water from on high onto the ground starting on Rosh Chodesh Shevat and on Tu B'Shevat it reaches  the buds where the fruit will soon appear.  But the system of the wicked set up by Obama and company 7 years ago in this world will So the Dawning of the Age of the Water-vapor Bucket is when the wicked cease to receive their reward in any world (this world or in the next world either).  "when the moon is in the 7th house, and when Jupiter aligns with Mars?"  I believe, that this is the meaning of the planetary alignment that is mentioned on Shirat Devorah's blog.

I should point out that Aquarius, the equivalent Mazal of the Water-vapor Bucket for the Umot HaOlam, has a face because HaShem hands the keys to rain to the angels overseeing the nations of the world.  But in E. Yisrael, HaShem does NOT hand the keys to rain to any angel to dispense rain in Eretz Yisrael.  Here in the Holy Land, HaShem reserves the keys to rain for Himself.  So In E. Yisrael alone, the Water Bucket does not have a face. 

A final salient point: 49 years ago the nations of the world got a head start toward tumah with the Summer of Promiscuous Sex in 1967.  Over 49 years the nations have reached Mem Tet Sha'arei tumah and are now by the onset of this summer in danger of falling into the abyss.  This song, Aquarius, was written in 1967 for the musical "Hair".  It only became a hit two years later in 1969 in time for Woodstock.  49 years later the side of Qedushah in the world is about to get started.  I would hazzard an educated guess that Mashiach WILL yet appear in this potential Yovel year and will grab the mantle of "Chezkat Mashiach" as the Rambam describes this matter.  Over the course of two years (in the same way that it took the forces of Tumah two years to really get rolling in 1967-1969) until 5778, he will prove himself to be the real deal and will be crowned as the Messianic king at that time, 70 years after the founding of the physical State.  Yet, if it is to be B'Rachamim in Eretz Yisrael, it should get started in Shevat, the month of the Water Bucket.  The period of Rachamim in Eretz Yisrael is of course the months when in the Northern Hemisphere the days are getting longer (Shevat, Adar I and II, Nisan, Iyar, and Siwan).  The months of Din are basically when the days are getting shorter, not including Elul only because Elul was specifically set aside for Rachamim. (From the Tenth of Tamuz, Av, Tishrei, MarCheshvan until the Tenth of Tevet).  Kislev, the month of miracles, seems to be above the mazal and is the only other month besides Tishrei (Moznaim or Scales) and Shevat (Water-vapor Bucket) where the Mazal does not have a face (Keshet or Bow).  The one thing we can say about months where the Mazal does not have a face is that during those months HaShem does not use angelic intermediaries and is therefore very, very close.  The point of this discussion is to point out that if Mashiach is coming b'Rachamim here in Eretz Yisrael in 5776, there is a narrow window of 6 months (Shevat, Adar I and Adar II, Nisan, Iyar, and Siwan) for this to come about.  Dear L-rd, let it get started right now!

This may be totally irrelevant but, as I was calculating dates, I stumbled across the fact that from 11 January 2014 [date of death of Ariel Sharon] to 20 February 2016 [the last day of the planetary alignment] it is 770 days. 770 of course is the number of the Lubavitcher Rebbe's HQ in Brooklyn and a very special number in many ways. Also has the gematria of Beit Moshiach.

In Davos one of the very top of the world Elite speaks of a debt Jubilee

The interview linked below is something we must take with the utmost seriousness. Mr. White was head of the BIS. the central bank of the world's central banking system. The BIS settles trades between the central banks such as the "Federal" Reserve Bank in the US, England, Russia, Israel and about 60 other nations. Mr. White is the ultimate insider in the secret New (Old) World Order. He is being interviewed by a recognized spokesperson for the NWO. These people have a tradition of world control reaching all the way back through history, notice his reference to ancient Sumer and the year of Jubilee. Before reading the article linked below, take a moment to digest what this man is saying in just one paragraph.

"The only question is whether we are able to look reality in the eye and face what is coming in an orderly fashion, or whether it will be disorderly. Debt jubilees have been going on for 5,000 years, as far back as the Sumerians."

I do protest though. I am not a Jewish occultist. G-d is always in control. It is just that historically, the righteous, beinoni, and the wicked have all drawn water from the Well of prosperity. With the Dawning of this Messianic Era, THAT is about to change. The most seminal date for this to go into overdrive is on Tu B'Shevat because of reasons spoken about in this post.

In the over 55 years of my relatively short life, I have never ever ever seen a so obviously highly manipulated market ramp on absolutely no good news as I have seen today. It, the Dow, was down almost 570 points. On absolutely no good news, the market was "mysteriously" ramped up over 400 points over the course of about one hour and a half to only being down about 130 points. (The NASDAQ was so ramped up that it was briefly in the green!). It then fell back to its close of being down 250 points. Until 2008, the US stock markets were basically free institutions whose stock values reflected the actual market value of the companies in the market. Today, as was obvious from today's ramp, the US stock markets are run by the Satan. There is NO other explanation for what happened today. To bring these pigs down who were protected by this mysterious market ramp, will be nothing less than HaQadosh Baruch Hu slaughtering the Devil Himself. All I can say about the Evil spectacle of Market manipulation that I saw today is WOW!

I know that Heshvan is not the best month for Hesed (the mabul began and ended in that month; it has no holidays, etc...) but is it not #8 (above nature) in order if Nisan is the first month? - and we have learned that it is set aside for the future dedication of the Final Beit haMiqdash.

It does seem, from what you have said, Reb Dov, that most months are actually Hesed rather then Din, even though it may be hidden in some of them.

On an economic note, to add to the other posts here, oil has plunged to under US$27 per barrel. Even Yishma'el will feel this one.

Reb Dov, I have the utmost respect for you and your efforts. I'm don't mean to raise any sort of a flame war here, but I'd like a clarification. In a previous comment you refer to "the devil" and "Satan" in a way that seems to indicate you believe that this entity exists as an independent being which has free will to battle against man. I hold a rationalist view of these things. I believe that the aspects of the Yetzer HaRa, Satan, the devil and whatever else it's referred to are nothing more than the evil inclination that is part of our own minds which we all wrestle with. In extension to that I believe that the Erev Rav are people who are wholly given over to this personal evil inclination. The Erev Rav in this context are our physical and spiritual enemies with flesh on their bones and perhaps in a way could be viewed as demons.

Again I am not throwing up a challenge to you or the readers of the blog but the reason for my question is to understand your beliefs, and world view which is in most respects very much like my own.

A source for my world view follows:

Rambam's Moreh Nevuchim Book III, chap. 22 discussing sefer Iyove

"...the Talmud says as follows: "Rebbe Shimeon ben Lakish, says: "The adversary (satan), evil inclination (yezer ha-ra'), and the angel of death, are one and the same being." Here we find all that has been mentioned by us in such a dear manner that no intelligent person will be in doubt about it. It has thus been shown to you that one and the same thing is designated by these three different terms, and that actions ascribed to these three are in reality the actions of one and thesame agent. Again, the ancient doctors of the Talmud said: "The adversary (satan) goes about and misleads, then he goes up and accuses, obtains permission, and takes the soul." You have already beentold that when David at the time of the plague was shown the angel" with the sword drawn in his hand stretched out over Jerusalem."

Rambam and Rebbe Shimeon ben Lakish teach that "satan" as discussed in Iyove and other instances, refers to a person's own instincts. Not "part" of God, or another force in the universe.
Additionally, as all Chazal write, God cannot possess parts. This is a fundamental, the violation of which one forfeits their Olam Haba, as Rambam teaches. See his 13 Principles and Yesodei haTorah.

First of all, great and enjoyable post. Second, re: stock market manipulation: the GOLD and SILVER market have been equally manipulated down, then up, then down, wash, rinse and repeat for a few years now. If you look at the chart of the silver and gold price each day, you will see that promptly around opening time of the NY markets, the price is shot down by naked short selling, or by emptying the gold reserves. Totally predictable. And then once in a while it is allowed to rise in a natural fashion, only to be ruthlessly and illegally shot down, so the criminals can benefit from their shorts. I understand that the oil market is also manipulated, although I have not seen it with my own eyes, have not followed it closely. Just like the price of gold and silver is artificially manipulated down, the price of stocks is manipulated up. So you can all deduct which is real money, which is fake. Make plans accordingly!

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Former slave: I of course accept and agree with the Rambam's take on this subject about the evil inclination. I would add though that as America over the last 49 years has descended into the spiritual pit, more and more American institutions have been handed over by HaQadosh Baruch Hu to the purview of the Satan as America falls out of favor with God. The stock market has been no exception to this rule.

At a time of G-d's choosing when the measure of evil has reached it's Fill, HaShem will instruct the Satan to pull the plug On this den of iniquity, this playground for reshayim. We pray that this time is now. Or G-d Himself will just destroy it without intermediaries.

Rav Dov,

Why 10 days to two weeks? Unless I misunderstood, tu bshavt was the critical date. It seems to me that these "significant dates" keep getting pushed back later and later.

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Simple, because markets take two weeks to respond to most events or to changes in economic or financial climates. Nothing except for what G-d does for all of us to see, happens instantaneously. In two weeks time if the financial and economic world is the same old world that it was before, we will discard this thesis described in this post and move on. What bothers me Mark is why do you want to shut down discussion or anticipation immediately? I am anticipating Mashiach. And by the way, I wrote this post as a question, not as a prediction. What is your agenda?

And as we have already discussed if nothing is happening by the end of Pesach 5776, all new posts and new writings on this blog talking about Mashiach coming imminently and the End of Days coming imminently will be placed on pause until things begin to happen. I may write a post about general topics or about what will happen when the Good L-rd decides that we have arrived, but I won't discuss how imminent that might be. What is your agenda by attempting to push back my commitment to stop writing about Mashiach's imminent coming by three months from Nisan until Shevat?

1/26/2016 4:17 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

The "effect" that I wrote about in this post that might be occurring is the loss of bracha in Olam HaZeh for the reshayim. The thesis of this post is that that bracha would end by Tu B'Shevat 5776. Now that Tu B'Shevat has concluded, we will see if this has happened and how that is manifest in the news and in the Markets. My sense is that if it is happening, we will know about it within two weeks, but that there is no way to know in advance how this will be manifest.

What I am about to write here refers to the financial picture of various nations; whether it also applies to their overall status I don't know.

I am following the markets closely and I must say I see quite a deterioration of the general financial well being of the world. What I do see happening is however, on one hand, the Western world grasping for straws, with on the other hand, Paras appearing to be on the ascendant. Just today Rouhani met with poop francis ( not surprising considering that Arafat i.e. the PA i.e. the Vatican's buddy, was instrumental in the foundation of the Islamic republic); he also made a huge financial deal with Italy; will this save Italy? Meanwhile France is rapidly going downhill, Germany ditto, the Swiss franc is going down, Europe is slowly closing its borders; the US maintains the smoke and mirrors for now while the Federal Reserve is becoming insolvent; etc. I don't know if the WHOLE world is going down: what I see is the WEST going down while parts of Yishmael are going up ( I am saying parts because Saudi Arabia seems to be going down actually, not to mention the rest of the Arab nations, Libya, Syria, etc.

And you can't say that Yishmael aren't reshaim!

By the way, I sure hope you are right; but meanwhile Jews keep getting murdered in Eretz Yisrael.

How does that fit with your views, and with the general prophecies?

An important lesson about Astrology in Judaism: We of course are not allowed to use Astrology or the Zodiac exclusively to either predict the future or to plan one's decisions based on auspicious times where "the stars" determine that we should do at what times.

Yet, let us look at the word ZoDiaC itself. The rib or root of that word is ZDK. It must be remembered that before the pagan world got a hold of the Zodiac for their own nefarious purposes, HaShem wanted to divide His tZeDeK, His righteousness, amongst the months of the year. If He would have desired, He would have simply judged Mankind with his eternal judgement on Rosh HaShanah and would have sent the judgement for the year into Olam HaZeh on Hoshana Rabbah, and Boom, everyone receives their judgement for the year all at once on Hoshanah Rabbah. In so doing the pain of all the negative judgements on Hoshanah Rabbah would have been poured onto Man with one painful punch in the face. But in His Infinite compassion, HaShem divided that judgement from Hoshana Rabbah amongst the 12 to 13 lunar cycles of the year, with the waxing and waning of mishpat waxing and waning with the phases of the moon. Each "Moon" therefore served to divide up the pain of the negative aspect of the judgement on Hoshana Rabbah into 12 or 13 more tolerable slaps in the face. And each month was made different so that the tZeDeK for each month was unique in its quality and its direction. These are the signs of the tZoDiaK. and this post is about the sign of the Water Bucket for the month of Shevat. Next month, Dagim, is the Zodiak for the two tribes that are impervious to the Evil Eye, the Ayin Ra, since fish swim in the pure environment of water and are impervious to the Evil Eye. In a normal year there is only one Adar, and the Dagim (fish) represent Yosef himself, but this year with two Adars, Adar Rishon is for Menashe, and Adar Sheini is for Ephraim so that these two tribes, "will multiply like fish in the midst of the Land of Israel"...

Thanks Dov for the ZoDiaC explanation. I was thinking actually that you were talking in a grander scale about a new Aquarius Era (also ?) As in; 26000 year cycle, divided by 12. So not just one month but a new (Messianic) era ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axial_precession. and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_of_Aquarius
Alls sorts of associations come to mind: Eating of the tree- new year of the tree, but also water symbolyzing Torah. But waterbucket is actually an air sign, since it is also according to kabbalah the first attribute of air that it holds water. So no coincidence that "astrologers" see an internal friction within the sign, since the air want to rise and the water want to fall. It could also mean chaos. The negative aspect of the beloved Age of Aquarius. For example the liberals/ex-Hippies are so liberal and tolerant, and know it so well. They are not tolerant to anybody who disagrees ! Banbrupt banks and hungry Pere Adam roaming the streets, don't give a harmonic picture at all with scared naive Westerners. So perhaps even a pre planned Heglian Dialectical play with Thesis and anti Thesis. Chaos out of order, and New World Order out of chaos. As in Obama's marshall law even (?)

I do believe that we are very close to the final redemption and also wait for Moshiach to come at any moment. I reject any hints or suggestions to the contrary.

My point of contention is in "how to wait for Moshiach."

Allow me to place my comments in the context of my life:

I am originally from NY and was raised in a modern and frum home. I grew up with a love of Eretz Yisrael that was only solidified when I went to Yeshiva after high school. This eventually resulted in moving here almost 4 years ago.

I believe in Emes and I often say: "We simply have no idea what will happen, what Geulah will look like: The where? When? And how? And that is difficult for all of us, myself included, to truly come to terms with. We are almost completely in the dark. This whole world is a novel written by the One Author and we all genuinely wish to see "How it will end." Ultimately, that is GD's domain - not ours. I have seen so many years of "this is it!" talk and calculations of dates ... which are proven to be false over and over and over again. They lead to frustration, confusion, sometimes sadness and potentially, despair. This cycle seems to continue.....without end. The fact that I am writing you Reb Dov is because I have the utmost respect for you and the Torah you disseminate through your blog. The concepts in Torah that you express in your blog, regarding Geulah, are second to none.

What disturbs me most is the pure emotional tone that permeates throughout many redemption blogs and their comments. Of course Reb Dov you are not responsible for what other people write or comment. However, these themes continue to saturate the entire "Redemption Culture" which is the audience to whom these blogs are targeting. The following is one such example:

I read on a blog how America is evil and if you think it is a blessing you are wrong and it is not a kind nation etc. (Something along those lines.) I almost responded but refrained from doing so. The post simply reflected an immature and childish outlook on history and the world. The United States of America is indeed a blessed country!!! I believe with perfect faith that GD bestowed upon the founding fathers of America the wisdom and vision to establish what probably has been the greatest non Jewish society that ever existed in the history of the world. Are you aware of the kindness that America does? The public assistance they grant to low income families, some are our brethren that have the merit to sit and learn Torah with dignity. America has laws which value life. There are laws in place to protect lives. In the eyes of America, life is precious. The US Constitution was designed protect it's citizens from dictatorships and fascism. What about the ability for a Jew to keep Shabbos and eat Kosher without repercussion? The healthcare that is offered to poverty stricken families and other countries throughout the WORLD. The ability to research, discover and manufacture medications that save lives! Of course this has all been Orchestrated by the Band Leader Himself. How can anyone believe otherwise!!?

The founding fathers were deeply religious men. They merited Divine Providence to discover America because, in GD's Wisdom, He Knew that Klall Yisrael would need a place of refuge to reconstitute Torah after the Hell of Europe. Even before the internet, America has been a massive source of Torah. The Yeshivas, Kollelim, schools etc. It was in America that Torah was made accessible to ANYONE who wished to grasp it (i.e. Artscroll, Feldheim, Torah tapes, etc.) Do you realize how awesome that is? Shall I go on?

If you do not want to believe me, don't. But it's not me saying these things. Gedolim have called America a "Malchus Shel Chesed" and for very good reason. It would have been nice if bloggers would peruse the many Sefarim, lectures and quotes that discuss this very topic before spewing trash on a country we all owe much gratitude to. How many big Rabonim in EY have all been educated and privileged to grow up in America only to continue there spiritual purpose in EY?

At the same time, I am no fool. America, like any country America has made many mistakes along the way. Like any society, along with the many blessings, America has also had to deal with the many challenges and risks that come with those blessings. How many Yidden have been lost in the "Spiritual Holocaust" that is America? The infamous double edged sword. Sadly, America has lost its path and has been hijacked by evil people and ideologies that are not only foreign to Our Avos Hakdoshim but Lehavdil also foreign to the very founders of America themselves. As a result, unfortunately, America's Zchusim have been significantly reduced through the perversion of the Supreme Court who refuse to acknowledge the Supreme Being who gave them life. GD is being chased out from the many corners of the USA and it is truly disheartening. These fake freedoms that were bestowed upon Americans were surely not what George Washington or Benjamin Franklin had in mind. Their pure intention of building a better society for mankind, rooted in the Bible and Aseres Hadibros, has been soiled by leaders who also "do not know Joseph." How can we not shed a tear for the destruction that awaits the people and society whom GD chose to shelter His beloved children for all these years? The opportunities to sanctify GD's Name are now diminished because of the evil people leading America to it's destruction. Do we await with baited breath the destruction of so many organizations, societies and people? (The UN does not count.) Yet, I find bloggers commenting on and anticipating the implosion of our host country.

I believe Eretz Yisrael is the safest place on Earth. Do you not realize how many of us here will also likely SUFFER as a result of America's collapse? Are people so naive to think that we will in no way be effected? I cannot believe I even have to address this. It is so obvious that we here in EY will, on some level, also be effected. What about all of the Yidden there who will have to deal with the pieces when America shatters? Do you believe everyone should just get up and move to Israel? Are you aware of every person's unique situation and struggle that may make it impossible for them to do so? Who made you GD that you judge the many Jews who remain in America? How dare we even approach the possibility that we have some idea. We have absolutely no idea. Again, this is GD's domain, not ours.

Is this what Ha"KBH has in mind when he commands us to yearn for redemption? I think not. Waiting for Geulah? Hoping destruction is imminent, especially in the country that we have called home for decades? It sounds misguided to me. This is the heart of my issue with the ideology of the "redemption culture."

My overall issue with the "redemption culture" is the pervasive emotion that often eclipses common sense and rational thinking. Please, do not confuse a true yearning, a level headed patience and hope for Moshiach with an emotional laden excitement the moment something happens. continued.....

Has anyone asked themselves what now? Ok let's say and of course we all hope it's true that Moshiach came and peace fills the world and the knowledge of One Hashem is clear. In your personal life will things be so different? Will those who are sick suddenly be healed? Those who are depressed suddenly be happy? Those who are single instantly be married? I am not aware of Torah sources that say this. If I am incorrect, please tell me. I will be happy to look at the source.

We (including myself) need to take a good hard look at ourselves and ask where this is all coming from. Is it from a true yearning for the Oneness of Hashem to finally be revealed or is it from a desire to stimulate the nuances of our personal lives? Perhaps it is a combination? The Mitzvah to wait for Moshiach does not mean that you think he will come now. Rather the Mitzvah is to believe that he is able to come at any moment even if you don't think he is coming now. There is a big difference. I do not think Moshiach will be coming this week but I certainly believe that he CAN come this week.

I wish everyone only the best and I await just like you for Moshiach arrival. My waiting however seems to be different than others' waiting.

My main goal was to inject Saichel and critical thinking into the "Redemption Culture" even if it stings a little. I truly believe this balanced thinking is overall better for you, me and all of Klal Yisrael.

The rules apply to me as well. I have just opened myself up to the public and like all of you, I am subjected to comments and criticism. I welcome them all.

Thank you for reading.

Sincerely, Mark

Mark: Most of what you have to say is correct about America's glorious past. But over the last 49 years, That America, The nation of Chessed, has been dying. It no longer is what it was meant to be by the Founding Fathers, and is on the verge of even losing its status as a Republic. If Donald Trump is elected (if Obobo allows him to get that far), it might get so bad that one will have to eventually call Donald Trump "Caesar". The Great American chapter of World History is coming to an end. And to be honest, it has to be that way because as great as America was and as long as America continues to exist, we would have to accept that Spiritual Yerushalayim could could not be rebuilt because Spiritual Caesaria would not yet lie in ruins....which is why I am not sure that We may ever yet be privileged to yell, "Hail Caesar Trump!" As long as Rome remains a viable alternative, Mashiach can not establish himself. Mashiach and Rome, even the kinder and gentler Rome called Washington D.C., cannot co-exist at the same time. Plus, I write all this with every intention of voting for Ted Cruz or Dr. Ben Carson if HaShem allows America to get that far. Ted Cruz is a student and upholder of the U.S. Constitution that Donald Trump would likely finish tearing to shreds if elected. Trump would not have to do much work tearing it apart because Barack Obama has been tearing it apart for 7 years already. So that job is almost complete anyway.

This is exactly why I keep saying we must daven for moshiach to arrive only with rachamim and not be so excited about the prospect of war and destruction. If America and the western world truly collapses it will have a profound effect on many people in EY. I won't bother to get into the details. We should speak more about a peaceful redemption in order to make it so. Why must it come via such doom? Can we take a moment to imagine the possibility of chesed?

Hi Rabbi Dov It Ariela I know it has been a long time since I posted. I thought I might travel the country and see what the good ole usa is up to. My report is a somber one . Every evil on earth exists here. Even those who are suppose to be righteous are wonting. In Georgia every kind of violence imaginable happened while there. In Colorado greed abounds and a kinds drug heads. Prices are outrageous 9 dollars for a 4 pack of butter in Montana. People we once knew as G-d fearing have turned to some sort of secular humanism. Children all over talk to their parents and elders with disgust and ingratitude much less no respect at all. People are hungry getting by on romin noodles and contaminated water. No one seemed to have a vision for life or a shine in their eye.It is indeed very hard to have seen all this. We went to a supposed farm for Jewish religiously minded folks were deeply hurt by them for lack of achdus, enough said about that. Now we are back in the Upper Peninsula of MI. I just came across this article it coincides with you have said here.

It's not my point to become buddies with the enemies, Dov. Although I am certain that it is doreisah not to make war with the gentiles. this is one of the three oaths written in mesecta kesubos.

I would even consider this Planet X destroying 2/3 of the worlds population to be rachamim. I am only thinking about the trauma that would ensue with a real and/or possible nuclear war. Let it be quick and clean-not drawn out and painful...this is also rachamim, though not fluffy, peace making.

How can life "just go on as usual" after MBY comes or even MBD until the Resurrection if 2/3 of everything we know would be laid to waste? Nothing will go on as usual. Everything will be different.

This world needs cleansing and much of this world needs to disappear in order to start again - in a new world. We CAN daven for rachamim - in the sense that however it's going to happen, let it be with rachamim. Let us be in awe of Hashem's chesed even within the chaos.

As I understand it, the 7th Millenium will be the cleaned up version of earth, being All Shabbos, the entire 7th. The 8th being above everything, a spiritual Gan Eden. So, therefore, the 6th as we know it has to change. How that will take place is up to HaShem.

EM: We don't have to lift a finger to aggressively seek war against our enemies. They seem to find all kinds of ways and excuses to "start up with us" though. And since all wars of self-defense are legitimate, the Geulah will still come in the process of us defending ourselves, most likely in a War (probably a War declared by France to divide Yerushalayim, for instance). You can count on the Frogs to start a war against us at the End of Days. They have prostituted themselves to the Arab cause so much, watch the Frogs lead the effort. Ribbit Ribbit. Or is it Rifat?

In other news, it looks like Donald Trump will take the Iowa Caucuses. Ted Cruz has an upward battle, and the best that Marco Rubio can hope for is 2nd Place. If this is the case, Trump will likely cruise to the Republican nomination in order to take his "rightful" position as America's Julius Caesar. The Republic of the United States will die either before he can be elected (because of what Obama might do to stop him) or because of Trump's election. The US Constitution has a fighting chance to survive if the Donald can be stopped by either Cruz or Rubio. But Americans are so so angry right now, the Donald has tapped into their Rage and seems to be making a beeline for the nomination. The Democrats are so far below Mem Tet Sha'arei Tumah that Hillary is not even worth talking about, and Bernie Sanders wants to establish the United Socialist States of America. We will leave it at that.

After the latest intrusion of a Russian jet into Turkish territory north of the Latakia Naval base on Friday, along the Mediterranean coast, Russia is denying that it intruded on Turkish airspace. Putin of course refuses to apologize for the incident even after Turkey reprimanded the Russian Ambassador to Turkey. Putin is no longer returning Erdogan's phone calls. So this is escalating. But Putin is not a hothead. He thinks at least that escalations into war take place on his terms.

Baruch HaShem to Ted Cruz for winning Iowa. And as he said (the very first thing that he said), "To G-d The Glory!" ......Would anyone beside the Chareidim say that here in Israel?

Cruz did well in the "thinking man's process." Caucusing requires a bit of commitment of time. On Caucus night, you have have to show up on time and sit in a room listening to speeches for up to two hours by people who are trying to convince you. Then you vote. You register at the door, and show up and time. And then you must participate after someone locks the door to the building behind you at 7 pm. And only after listening to speeches for two hours, you vote. I wonder how well he will do in the Primaries where people stand in line for no longer than one half an hour and then vote over the course of two minutes. At this time Trump for instance has a 20 percentage point lead in the New Hampshire Primary. So we shall see.

Here is a pretty incredible video at a time when he could have fudged his words, but Ted did not do so. He was booed roundly by a large group of Arab Xtians when he suggested that Middle-Eastern Xtians have no greater ally than "the Jewish State". The audience ends up roundly booing Cruz off the stage. All I can say is Wow to how he responded to their hate. "I will say this. I am saddened to see that some here are so consumed with hate.... If you will not stand with Israel and the Jews, then I will not stand with you!"

I don't want to suggest that we have to depend upon any Prince from amongst the Nations to save us. But we should at least recognize such a Prince among men with our votes. Ted Cruz is such a Prince.

What do you make of this interview with UTJ MK Eichler?

2/03/2016 2:20 AM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Jesterhead: It is all sadly true. MK Yisrael Eichler is a fine upstanding Jew. He speaks the Truth in this article. In Eretz Yisrael we are on a knife's edge, but angels of G-d keep our feet from touching the blade......usually. The secular State is consumed with promoting its image abroad. The Left does it because their popularity amongst the nations IS their Avodah Zarah. They will even put their lives on the line in order to be loved by the world. Netanyahu, on the other hand, does it NOT because he craves the world's love but because from his perspective of Worldpolitik, he does not see how we survive WITHOUT their approval and positive opinion. So his insanity unlike the Left's insanity is tempered by a calculating mind and is admitted about 1000 times less insane even if he is no party or picnic either. Sadly he is NOT Ted Cruz. We truly have chosen well here between the lesser of two evils even if sanity is not in either camp. The Erev Rav here controls with an iron fist the Courts and the mainstream Media. The Faith of our Avot lies with individuals here. Long ago (about 2000 years ago), the fiercely G-d fearing Jew (Chareidim) accepted Vespasian's offer for survival. Give us Yavne where we can keep Shabbat, sanctify the New Moon, and blow Shofar on Rosh HaShanah even if it falls on Shabbat. You, Vespasian, run the world in your own corrupt way that only Edom could do with a clear conscience. The Erev Rav is a lesser Edom, but the Chareidi world, fears them on a political level as much as they fear the L-rd who decides their fate and ours in Olam HaBa. Without G-d bringing this Geulah, MK Eichler and all whom he represents will not be the vehicle for destroying the Erev Rav here. So as Meir Ettinger goes down the dark path of Duma, amongst the Yordei Duma, many hear him scream, but so few react in a spiritually healthy way who are NOT afraid of the Erev Rav and who understand that the State is NOT the vehicle for the spiritual redemption of Klal Yisrael, just its physical redemption, and a far from perfect one even in that sphere. But Eichler is thankfully wrong about one thing. The 6 million Jews who have been ingathered here may not be under the protection of a public relations craving State, but as Eichler said himself, the L-rd Above will take care of them in the merit of another 6 million who were not protected in this world 70 years ago. In the merit of the 6 million who perished, the 6 million who have been ingathered survive here are under G-d's protection. This is after all B'Itah.

Yerushalayim will be a refuge as the pasuk says. The State will NOT be a refuge. As a matter of fact, it will likely disintegrate. Mashiach will show up, and if Bibi is still around, he will happily give the burden to Mashiach because Bibi is simply not competent to deal with this burden. He smirked at Feiglin for basically saying that a faithless PM simply does not have the tools to lead a Holy nation, but in the end the Smirker will have to humbly realize his horrible error in judgement.

It is an excellent sign, that Bibi Netanyahu has all of the simanim of the last pre-Messianic leader of the lowly State as predicted by Zecharia 12. He IS ben Natan from Rav Natan Mileikowsky. He finally let out a secret, that he IS a Levi. And he is trying to destroy Amalek in Persia which is the avodah of the family of Shimi Ben Geira who inherited this mantle when the line of Shaul haMelekh ended with the assassination of Shaul's son, Ish Boshet. The Avodah went to the family of Shaul's brother Geira through the descendants of Shimi ben Geira. One known descendant who took on Amalek in the Persian Empire was of course, Mordechai. So Bibi has all the simanim from Zecharia Chapter 12 (based on those who mourn for him when he is assassinated with a sharp knife!(Zech 12:10) Hmm), so much so that he seems to truly be that leader. Somehow keep your chin up, and don't fall into despondency. Shabbat Shalom.
