One Final Tekiah Gedolah For those Who Deny that the First Two Have Already Occurred.

 This will be a post where I need to write in shorthand because frankly, Time is short.  If we look at Musaph Rosh HaShanah davening, we notice several things about the Order of prayers called Malkhuyot (Verses of Kingship), Zikhronot (Verses of Remembrance), and Shofarot (Verses of Blasts from the Ram's Horn).  Each set has three verses from the Torah, three verses from the Holy Writings (usually from the Book of Psalms), and then three verses from the Prophets (Nevua) followed by another final verse from the Torah.  One can say that the entire essence of the Day of Judgement (1st of Tishrei, the 7th month) is wrapped up in those three themes.  We have a once a year Coronation ceremony for HaShem Elokim as King of the Universe, actually twice per year since we repeat the Coronation on the 2nd of Tishrei because of doubt if the New Moon for Tishrei was actually seen.  So that part is Malkhuyot.  We also ask HaShem Elokim to remember the righteousness of the spiritual Giants who were our forbearers, Zikhronot, taking "advantage" of G-d's stated Holy attribute that while He recalls the sins of the ancestors for three or four generations in Judgement for the non-penitent, He remembers with Kindness the righteousness of one's ancestors for 1000 or thousands of generations.  Since Sinai if we count each generation as about 30 years between one Dor and the next, we have only passed the torch of Torah 112 times.  So we are well within our 1000 generation limit.  If we go back to Abraham, there are only an additional 6 generations between Abraham and Moses for a total of 118 generations, again well within our 1000 generation limit.  By recalling the merit of our ancestors on Rosh HaShanah, we definitely add "weight" to our balance of merit vs debts owed on our personal Scale of Justice, for which Tishrei is known amongst the Mazalot (signs of the Tzedeq of G-d aka the Zodiac).  By the way, I am using the Name HaShem Elokim here because this refers to the Name of G-d on the Throne of Judgement in the 5th Heaven as opposed to the Name of HaShem alone on His Throne of Mercy in the 7th Heaven.  Also when Adam and Chava were thrown out of Gan Eden on Rosh HaShanah 5783 years ago, it is precisely by that Name that He is known in the Torah on that First Day of Judgement in the Year 1.  (Only on a deeper level was there are Year 0.)

This brings us to Shofarot, the blasts of the Ram's Horn, for which this Day is known in the Written Torah as Yom Teruah (Numbers 29:1) or Yom Zikhron Teruah (Lev 23:24).  On Rosh HaShanah, according to the Torah, we are obligated to hear three sets of three (Tekiah, Teruah, Tekiah) for a sum total of 9 Shofar blasts!  Yet, because there is a Saffek D'Oraita (doubt about the nature of a Torah commandment) on what is a Teruah, we need to hear three possible combinations of what a Teruah might be as the middle blast in each set of three.  9 short blasts is called a Teruah by our Machzorim, and 3 mid-range blasts is called Shevarim.  And then the possibility that a Teruah is 3 mid-range blasts followed by 9 short blasts also must be taken into account.  Since we call Shevarim- Teruah two separate blasts even though the one who calls for the blasts mentions them both at the same time, taking into account the potential doubt of what a Teruah might actually be, we need to hear 30 blasts of the Shofar on Rosh HaShanah.  

3 x (Tekiah, Shevarim- Teruah, Tekiah) = total of 9 or 12 blasts.  Each Tekiah is simply one long blast of the Shofar.  The Teruah is the broken blast.

3 x (Tekiah, Shevarim, Tekiah) = total of 9 blasts

3 x (Tekiah, Teruah, Tekiah) = total of 9 blasts for a final total of 27 or 30 blasts.  Probably we should count Shevarim- Teruah as one blast because that combination might be the ancient Teruah after all.  So in reality there are 27 total blasts.  What is important to remember though is that IF we knew precisely what a Teruah was supposed to sound like, we would only be obligated in hearing 9 blasts of the Shofar on both days of Rosh HaShanah!  So why nine blasts?

Our sages give many reasons for these 3 sets of 3 blasts of the Shofar on Rosh HaShanah.  One of these reasons is that we need to chop up The Satan's accusations with the instrument that sounds most like a wailing man crying bitter tears.  So the custom is to blow the Shofar on the right side of one's mouth because The Heavenly Accuser/Prosecutor stands to the right of the Accused which is to the Left of G-d's Heavenly Throne during which the 3 mid-range or 9 short blasts of Teruah cut The Satan's accusations into pieces on the very day of our yearly trial before the King of the Universe.  Why do we need three Teruot?  Because The Satan has three roles in the world:

1. To enhance our existing Yetzer HaRa when we are being tested to see if we can overcome our Evil Inclination.  The Satan enhances this Yetzer HaRa when we are being tested to, according to G-d's standards, have a 50/50 chance of passing a test.  In many cases doing the right thing might be very easy, but if the Satan is involved in making the test more difficult, other extenuating factors will be added to make the test on honest exam.  Only in this way can we have true moral free will to pass or fail the test.  What is interesting is that the only day of the year where The Satan does not enhance our Yetzer HaRa is on Purim (14th and 15th of Adar).  In a year with 2 Adars, I do not know if this applies to Purim Qatan in Adar Rishon.  So if a person has subdued his/her Yetzer HaRa by Purim, they will not sin on that day...... even if he/she is drunk, for The Satan will not push a righteous drunk person into the situation of being tested on that day.

2. As the Heavenly Prosecutor from which he gets the name HaSatan:  The Satan is active the entire year, but just like he takes one day off from his role as the Enhancer of our Yetzer HaRa, he takes another day off from his role as the Heavenly Prosecutor.  That day is Yom Kippur.  We see this in his name itself, השטן, The Gematriah of which is 364.  So for 364 days in a solar year he is active in Heaven, but on Yom Kippur, he is absent from that role (if we heard the Shofar 8 and 9 days earlier on Rosh HaShanah and if we are fasting like angels to merit being before the Throne of Mercy in the 7th Heaven on the 10th of Tishrei.)  So there are stipulations to not being prosecuted by the Satan on Yom Kippur.

3. As the Angel of Death or the Malakh HaMavet.  Once again he is active in this role all year long, but there is one day a year where part of his role as the Angel of Death is taken away from him.  That day is Hoshana Rabbah (the 7th Day of Sukkot, 21st of Tishrei) when only G-d Himself slays the very wicked and sits in Judgement of the final status of where the various nations of the world will be one year later in terms of their physical existence and their well being.  Spiritual judgements are written and sealed before the Full Moon of Tishrei, but one's physical judgement descends through the 7 Heavens over the 7 days of Sukkot starting with the Full Moon for that month.  This applies especially to nations because unlike Israel, most nations as nations do not have a world to come.  Human beings as individuals have a World to Come, but Nations (except for Israel) do not.  So Hoshana Rabbah is a unique day where the Angel of Death, in part, takes a rest.

For those who keep the custom, it is customary on all three of these days to eat a three cornered pastry in honor of The Satan's reduced prowess on these three days.  Every one knows about HamanTaschen (Haman's three cornered ears on Purim), but the custom also extends to Erev Yom Kippur and Hoshana Rabbah (in the Sukkah) where many eat kreplach in the Ashkenazic world which is a three cornered meat or potato pastry.  

So getting back to the main plot, we have specifically three sets of three blasts of the Shofar because, for one, the three Teruot need to chop up the three various roles of the Satan on that day.  And that must be done with the horn of preferably a Ram, because a Ram more than any other Qorban "accentuates our positive commandments and our positive midot" to contrast with the Satan's accusations, something that can be discussed at another time, and it sounds most like the wailing tears of a human being (9 short blasts or 3 mid-sized blasts or the combination of the two described above).  Notice, the Satan is fully active on Rosh HaShanah in all three capacities mentioned above.  So all three roles must be chopped into pieces by an instrument that most represents our tears.

Alas, we get to the part where one must ask, "Ok, I get the need for the three Teru'ot on Rosh HaShanah, but why must we add a Tekiah before and after each Teruah like bookends?"  What is the purpose of a Tekiah before and after each Teruah to give us a Tekiah Teruah Tekiah sandwich?   Well according to the Sages of our Ages (Chaza"l), the Torah in Parshat Yithro mentions that at Matan Torah we heard three blasts of the Shofar.  There are only three references to Kol Shofar or Kol HaShofar in chapter 19 and 20 of Shemot (Exodus) when the first two of the Ten Statements were given directly by G-d and where the remaining eight were given by G-d through Moshe as an intermediary.  (The people were frightened that they might die if they heard all Ten Statements directly from HaQodesh Barukh Hu.)  What is fascinating is that one can even see this in the text of the first two Commandments compared to the last eight commandments.  The first two refer to G-d in the 1st Person(אנוכי הי אלקיך in the first Commandment and לֹא-יִהְיֶה לְךָ אֱלֹהִים אֲחֵרִים, עַל-פָּנָי or וְעֹשֶׂה חֶסֶד, לַאֲלָפִים--לְאֹהֲבַי, וּלְשֹׁמְרֵי מִצְוֺתָי in the 2nd Commandment.)  I am HaShem you G-d, You will not have other (false) gods in MY presence, and I the L-rd your G-d.......who does lovingkindness to the 1000th generation for those who love Me and for those who observe MY Commandments.  While in the Third Commandment we already see G-d being referred to in the Third person:  כִּי לֹא יְנַקֶּה יְהוָה, אֵת אֲשֶׁר-יִשָּׂא אֶת-שְׁמוֹ לַשָּׁוְא.  For HaShem will not clean up the damage of those who carry HIS Name in vain.  From here we can clearly see that starting with the Third Commandment, Moshe gave over the Statements as an intermediary because Klal Yisrael had complained of the overwhelming power of hearing G-d's voice, directly, in the first two Commandments that they might die.  But with regards to these Shofar blasts we know that they were Tekiot and not Teruot from the second blast where it says in Chapter 19: verse 19:  

יט  וַיְהִי קוֹל הַשֹּׁפָר, הוֹלֵךְ וְחָזֵק מְאֹד; מֹשֶׁה יְדַבֵּר, וְהָאֱלֹהִים יַעֲנֶנּוּ בְקוֹל. 19 And when the voice of the ram's horn waxed louder and louder (or waxed continuously louder), Moses spoke, and God answered him by a voice.

The "waxing louder and louder" or "waxing continuously louder" reference can only refer to a longer single blast of the Shofar and NOT a broken blast.  So if all three Kol Shofar references are to be equivalent in their essence, then all three of them were a Teki'ah.  We learn the same from verse 13 where we see that the blast of the Shofar, which is blown when the Divine Presence is on the Mountain, will be elongated, that is a Single blast called here a Yovel.  This instruction in verse 13 was actually given on the 3rd of Siwan, three days before the events of the 6th (or 7th) of Siwan.  So this statement about the elongated blast was a preparation for the fateful day of Matan Torah itself:

יג  לֹא-תִגַּע בּוֹ יָד, כִּי-סָקוֹל יִסָּקֵל אוֹ-יָרֹה יִיָּרֶה--אִם-בְּהֵמָה אִם-אִישׁ, לֹא יִחְיֶה; בִּמְשֹׁךְ, הַיֹּבֵל, הֵמָּה, יַעֲלוּ בָהָר. 13 no hand shall touch him, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live; when the ram's horn soundeth long (sound is elongated), they shall come up to the mount (when the blast concludes). 

There seems to be a debate about whether we were supposed to ascend the Mountain to see G-d Face to face during the Tekiah blast, or whether we were correct to wait until the end of the blast when the Shekhinah had departed before ascending the Mountain.  This matter is discussed here in detail.   Had we been ready to meet G-d Face to face while the Shofar blast was occurring, we likely would have never sinned at the Cheit HaEigel according to this drashah from the Har Etzion Yeshivah.

So if this summary of Matan Torah is correct, though, there were three Tekiot at Har Sinai, but looking closer at the Verses, only one of them was the Kol HaShofar.  One was the Voice of G-d.  A second was the Thunder from the Intensely Dark Cloud that gathered to conceal the Shekhinah's descent upon Mt. Sinai, and the Third was the long continuous Blast (Tekiah) of the Shofar itself.  I do not mean to skip over the depth of this, but the final subject of this Essay is the End of Days, not the Day of the Revelation at Sinai.  So we will leave this matter by mentioning that the Torah itself refers to this long Tekiah Shofar blast three times as Kol HaShofar.  This becomes more evidential when at the end of the 3 psukim from Torah, then for some reason 4 psukim from Psalms, and 3 more from the Prophets, the last pasuk from the Torah is not a Tekiah on the Shofar at all!  It is on the pair of Silver Trumpets that Moshe was commanded to fashion in Parshat BeHa'alotkha!  In the entire Torah there are only three Teki'ot of the Ram's horn (or one long tekiah or voice from the Noise of the thick, dark cloud on the mountain, one long tekiah from the ram's horn, and the Voice of G-d Himself) , the three Voices mentioned at the Revelation at Sinai.  All the other Tekiot mentioned are on the Silver Trumpets made by Moshe Rabbeinu for gathering the nation at the Tent of Meeting or for gathering the Princes of the tribes or for blowing the trumpets over elevation offerings and Peace offerings for Shabbatot, Festivals, and New Moons.  The Talmud DOES derive that when Trumpets were sounded on Shabbatot and Moadim, so were Shofarot, but this derivation is not in the Written Torah.

Now let us look at the pasukim (verses) for the Nevi'im, The Prophets.  During the Order of Malkhuyot (Kingship), all the p'sukim of course deal with the Crowning of G-d as King of the Universe.  Two of them are prophetic for the End of Days, but only one of them gives us specific information about a specific event, when Saviors will ascend Mt. Tzion to judge Mt. Esav (Vesuvius), and the Kingdom will belong to HaShem.  The intent of these three p'sukim though is not to provide the Roadmap for Redemption at the End of Days.  The intent to instill Reverence for G-d.  Then we come to the Three verses from the Prophets in Zikhronot (Remembrances).  This time the prophets are focusing on the Greatness of our Ancestors or the Spiritual bond that HaShem had with one particular ancestor, Ephraim the son of Yosef and Osnat.  So the Prophetic verses here reflect on our past, not on our future.  Remember the purpose of these verses is to add credit or weight the Scale of Justice in Heaven in Our favor by recounting the Righteousness of our ancestors or the Joy that they gave to HaShem.  The third verse here though is significant because of the final role of Mashiach ben Ephraim (Yehonatan Pollard?) in the month of Adar Sheini (The 2nd month of the Fish) of the Final Redemption, mentioning it here (Yirm 31:19)  

יט  הֲבֵן יַקִּיר לִי אֶפְרַיִם, אִם יֶלֶד שַׁעֲשֻׁעִים--כִּי-מִדֵּי דַבְּרִי בּוֹ, זָכֹר אֶזְכְּרֶנּוּ עוֹד; עַל-כֵּן, הָמוּ מֵעַי לוֹ--רַחֵם אֲרַחֲמֶנּוּ, נְאֻם-יְהוָה.

19 Is Ephraim a darling son unto Me? Is he a child that is dandled? For as often as I speak of him, I do earnestly remember him still; therefore My heart yearneth for him, I will surely have compassion upon him, saith the LORD.

Finally, we get to the three verses from the Prophets on the End of Days Shofar blasts, and I can verily promise that the first two Shofar blasts are NOT prophesies for the distant future.  They are Tekiot that have already occurred.  In all three cases, these are blasts commemorating specific events which are duteously described in the verses themselves.  And even if the first two blasts are inverted according to Nusach Ashkenaz and Nusach Eidot HaMizrach (Sephardic and Babylonian and Persian Jews), their themes are in chronological order.  According to Nusach Ashkenaz:

Isaiah (Yishayahu) 18:3 כָּל-יֹשְׁבֵי תֵבֵל, וְשֹׁכְנֵי אָרֶץ, כִּנְשֹׂא-נֵס הָרִים תִּרְאוּ, וְכִתְקֹעַ שׁוֹפָר תִּשְׁמָעוּ.  {ס} 3 All ye inhabitants of the world, and ye dwellers on the earth, as an ensign (flag) is lifted up on the mountains, you will see it; and as the ram's horn is blown (like the blowing of a ram's horn), you will hear it.

This is a prophesy about the Founding of the State of Israel.  The flag raised in the Mountains was the establishment of (West) Yerushalayim as the capital of the new state.  Yet, because the State was established by International Socialists and some Communists, the State was founded by the Erev Rav as a husk to protect what was within it.  So what was heard throughout the world was "like" the blast of a Shofar.  It has accomplished four goals necessary as a foundation for the Messianic Era, with the process of Mashiach ben Yosef working within its midst.

1. The Ingathering of at least 6 million Jews since the State was founded by just over 600,000 Jews

2. The building of the physical infrastructure that will be used in the Messianic Era

3. The establishment of Torah institutions by those who wanted to establish them often with financial help from the State itself

4. The uncovering of Archeology of our distant past from the Altar of Yehoshua bin Nun on Mt. Eibal through the Bar Kokhba Revolt attaching our distant past to our brighter future

One can safely say that that particular Shofar blast that was Like the Tekiah of a Shofar was on the 5th of Iyar 5708.  The rest of the sound and light show associated with the founding of the State will soon be transformed into the earthly Footstool for the Heavenly Throne.

Years ago during August of 1989, Rav Motti Berger of Aish HaTorah came to speak at the Jewish Federation of S. Louis in what was a main Auditorium in the Jewish Federation Bldg.  What he had to say that August was shocking in every respect of that word.  He gave over a Dvar Torah of the Vilna Gaon that the Ingathering of the exiles expressed in the next verse would occur 3/4 through the 6th Millennium (either in 5750 or in 5751) because high noon on the 6th day is 3/4 of the way through Yom Shishi, and at that moment Shofar blowers would ascend hills and mountains in Eretz Yisrael to blow a Tekiah to call Israel in from her fields to prepare for Shabbat.  Until High noon on Friday, one could do mundane work and labor as one did the other days of the week (Sunday - Thursday), but at high noon, only work which was necessary to prepare for Shabbat could be done.  The reason for the possible discrepancy between 5750 and 5751 as to whether the ingathering would begin in which of those two years is because the Gaon was not 100% sure on whether the 6000 years of Olam HaZeh would end at the end of the year 5999 or at the end of the year 6000.  If Olam HaZeh ends at the end of the year 5999, then the 3/4 mark was in the year 5750.  If it ended at the end of the year 6000, then the 3/4 mark was in the year 5751.  I remember this was an issue when years ago we were discussing the beginning of Mincha Gedolah of the 6th Millennium or 12:30pm on Yom Shishi after which Mashiach could only come b'itah since all the Achishena dates had passed.  So doing the calculation, that date was either Rosh Chodesh Av 5770 or Rosh Chodesh Av 5771, once again depending on the same criterion whether the 6th Millennium ended at the end of 5999 or at the end of the year 6000.  So here is the 2nd verse of Nevua in Shofarot Musaph Rosh HaShanah according to Nusach Ashkenaz/ Sephard Chassidim:  Isaiah 27:13

 וְהָיָה בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, יִתָּקַע בְּשׁוֹפָר גָּדוֹל, וּבָאוּ הָאֹבְדִים בְּאֶרֶץ אַשּׁוּר, וְהַנִּדָּחִים בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם; וְהִשְׁתַּחֲווּ לַיהוָה בְּהַר הַקֹּדֶשׁ, בִּירוּשָׁלִָם.  {פ} 13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great ram's horn shall be blown; and they shall come that were lost in the land of Assyria, and they that were dispersed in the land of Egypt; and they shall worship the LORD in the holy mountain at Jerusalem.

Notice the uptick from the previous Shofar blast.  This blast is a REAL Shofar blast, but the blowing of the Tekiah is in the passive voice.  So we do not know which Angelic being in Shamayim blew the Shofar in 5750/51.

Now I realize that the Temple has not yet been rebuilt.  So the last part of this verse has yet to occur, but it is noteworthy what the Gaon said next.  According to Rav Berger, the Gaon juxtaposed this verse about a Shofar blast being blown in Isaiah 27 with the ingathering of the exiles described in Yirmiyahu 31, specifically this verse 31:7:

  הִנְנִי מֵבִיא אוֹתָם מֵאֶרֶץ צָפוֹן, וְקִבַּצְתִּים מִיַּרְכְּתֵי-אָרֶץ--בָּם עִוֵּר וּפִסֵּחַ, הָרָה וְיֹלֶדֶת יַחְדָּו:  קָהָל גָּדוֹל, יָשׁוּבוּ הֵנָּה. 7 Behold, I will bring them from the land of the north (of Eretz Yisrael), and gather them from the uttermost parts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together; a great company shall they return hither.

From here we see that this Shofar blast would be heard and would be FIRST manifest in the world with a massive ingathering of all the Jews north of Israel.  The Vilna Gaon seems to be referring here to all the Jews of Russia or Eastern Europe which was due north of Eretz Yisrael.  Now perhaps this might also refer to Turkey, but since 1948 (5708) a Jew in Turkey could make Aliyah under his own auspices.  He did not need a Shofar blast to bring Turkish Jews on Aliyah.  Taking a Turkish Airline Aliyah flight to Israel in 1990 or 1991 was not a big deal, and it certainly did not require a Shofar blast.  But from Eastern Europe, behind the Iron Curtain?  A miracle would be needed.  Now this is where the Vilna Gaon seems to require one to use his/her head to see when that Shofar blast might occur.  Just 7 verses later, we see in whose merit this great ingathering would take place!  Yirm 31:14-16

 כֹּה אָמַר יְהוָה, קוֹל בְּרָמָה נִשְׁמָע נְהִי בְּכִי תַמְרוּרִים--רָחֵל, מְבַכָּה עַל-בָּנֶיהָ; מֵאֲנָה לְהִנָּחֵם עַל-בָּנֶיהָ, כִּי אֵינֶנּוּ.  {ס} 14 Thus saith the LORD: A voice is heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping, Rachel weeping for her children; she refuseth to be comforted for her children, because they are not. {S}

טו  כֹּה אָמַר יְהוָה, מִנְעִי קוֹלֵךְ מִבֶּכִי, וְעֵינַיִךְ, מִדִּמְעָה:  כִּי יֵשׁ שָׂכָר לִפְעֻלָּתֵךְ נְאֻם-יְהוָה, וְשָׁבוּ מֵאֶרֶץ אוֹיֵב. 15 Thus saith the LORD: Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears; for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the LORD; and they shall come back from the land of the enemy.

טז  וְיֵשׁ-תִּקְוָה לְאַחֲרִיתֵךְ, נְאֻם-יְהוָה; וְשָׁבוּ בָנִים, לִגְבוּלָם.  {ס} 16 And there is hope for thy future, saith the LORD; and thy children shall return to their own border.

Lo and behold, the puzzle is unlocked.  The Great Shofar blast of the 6th Millennium (Isaiah 27:13) which would FIRST bring in the Jews from the North of Eretz Yisrael would occur in the merit of Rachel our Matriarch, most likely on her Jahrzeit, the date of her death, when her merits appear yearly before the Heavenly Court (the 11th of Marcheshvan 5750 or 5751!!)

Now, keep in mind that Rav Berger came and gave this talk during August of 1989.  Rosh HaShanah 5750 was about one month to five weeks away.  We did not have to wait long for the Jahrzeit of Rachel Immeinu in the year 5750.  So the 11th of MarCheshvan 5750 was the 9th of November 1989.  On that very day the Great Shofar blast was blown, and in came the Bnei Ephraim from the Land of Ashur from the North country.  On that very day, the Berlin Wall came crashing to the Ground!  And into Eretz Yisrael poured about 1 1/2 million Eastern European Jews, just as the Vilna Gaon predicted about 200 years before it happened.  So if you want a definitive date for the Great Shofar Tekiah of the 6th Millennium, it was on the 11th of MarCheshvan 5750.  For every Jew in the world, if you are davening for that Shofar blast on Rosh HaShanah to occur for you, perhaps perhaps you missed the frequency of that blast.  It is history.  It has already occurred, over 34 years ago.

Oh, but we are not finished yet.  There were two ingatherings predicted for that two year period.  Only one of them was the Lost from the Land of Ashur (Assyria).  There would be another group of ancient Northern Kingdom Israelites who would be "Castaway in the Land of Mitzraim (Egypt)" who would also be ingathered during either 5750 and 5751.   For this we need to learn a bit of Oral History from Ethiopian Jews.  In the early 1980s before Operation Moses in 1984- Jan 1985, I spent about 6 months in Arad, Israel.  At that time Begin had been quietly ingathering Ethiopian Jews and bringing them home to Israel.  For whatever reason, the Absorption Centers in Arad were half-filled by Ethiopian immigrants.  The other half were immigrants from the rest of the world.  And I became friendly with a few families, and they told me their history in the Galut of Shwa along the tributary of the Blue Nile in Gondar Province.  Apparently, Shlomo HaMelekh and the Queen of Sheba had a son named Menelik.  He was sent to Shlomo's Kingdom by the Queen to be raised in Shlomo's Palace around the year 995 bce (taking into account Rav Shimon Schwab's tikkun of 165 years).  Upon King Shlomo's death around 965 bce, Menelik returned to Schwa with Shlichim from the Tribe of Dan to convert the entire Royal household to Judaism.  240- 245 years later around the year 722 bce, tragedy strikes the Northern Kingdom of Israel.  Shalmanezer the 5th followed by Sargon II who overthrew Shalmanezer V in a Palace coup sacked Samaria and exiled most of the Northern Kingdom to the eastern most realms of the Assyrian Empire.  Many of the northernmost tribes of Asher, Naftali, and the part of Dan that had conquered SE Lebanon had already been taken prisoner, and they were being used as slave porters for the Assyrian Army in later invasions of Judea, The Sea People's Palestine (Philistia) and later on Egypt around 670 bce by Esserhaddon son of Senncharrib who extended the Assyrian Empire down to Southern Egypt.  (I believe the southernmost city in Esserhaddon's reign was Memphis, Mitzraim (not Tennessee).  Upon doing this, he gave his Israelite porters whom he no longer needed a choice to be exiled to the far-eastern portion of the Assyrian Empire OR to leave his Empire for Sub-Saharan Africa.  Around 670 bce,  almost 300 years after the founding of the Jewish Kingdom of Schwa in Ethiopia, these "Castaway" Israelites departed the Assyrian Empire for Sub-Saharan Africa.  They became the Nidachim b'Eretz Mitzraim in the Isaiah 27 prophesy above and joined the existing Jewish kingdom in Ethiopia around 670 bce.  For over 2650 years they remained there, even when the kings of Ethiopia converted to Xtianity and took on non-Jewish wives.  Those kings were still descendants of King Shlomo, but they were no longer Jewish kings.  

Still the Beita Yisrael of Ethiopia remained there.  They had a legend that their portion of the tributary to the Blue Nile from Lake Tana in Northern Ethiopia roared all week long with rushing waters, but on Shabbat it was calm and placid.  Yet, they could not leave their villages for Eretz Yisrael on Shabbat by crossing the Blue Nile to return to Israel.  So they named that portion of the Blue Nile, the Sanbat River, Amhari or ancient Ge'ez for Shabbat.  (I am not kidding here.  This is their own Oral history.)  When Operation Moses occurred, people had to make a 1000 mile trek to the Sudanese Desert from Gondar Province where Pres Numeri of Sudan was secretly allowing Israeli cargo jets to land and take off with Israelites who had made the trek.  The operation went smoothly for about two months, rescuing about 7000 more Ethiopian Jews above the 7000 Israelites that Begin had been able to rescue earlier in the 1980s.  It was suddenly stopped when the Arab World found out and pressured Numeri to stop the Operation.  About 1000 Ethiopians were trapped in the Sudanese Desert until March when God HW Bush Sr. as Vice-President rescued whoever had not starved to death or died of thirst in the Desert in another operation called Yehoshua.  And there things remained for over 6 years, nuclear families split in two.  Half of some families were in Eretz Yisrael and half were in Ethiopia under the Communist Govt of Mengistu Miriam.  In 1991 during the Civil War in Ethiopia, the Eritrean People's front in encroaching on the capital Addis Ababa.  Suddenly in mid-May 1991 the Communist govt loses control of the Airport.  The Israeli govt realized that they had a 48 hour window to sweep into Addis Ababa and rescue the approximately 16000 to 18000 Ethiopian Jews who are in a compound run by the North American Council or Conference on Ethiopian Jewry that had been operating there as a refuge for over 6 years to reunite all the nuclear families that were split in two after Operation Moses.  It is May 24th and 25th, and guess what?  It is Friday afternoon and Shabbat, Parshat Nasso, and during that 36 hour period, precisely at the time that the Sanbat River became placid for 2650 years, 16,000 to 18,000 Ethiopian Jews were rescued in Operation Shlomo.    But wait a minute!  It was not Parshat Nasso in Eretz Yisrael.  That year Seder night had been on Shabbat, and there was an 8th day of Pesach on Shabbat outside of Israel.  So Eretz Yisrael was on the following week's parshah on the Shabbat of the 24th of May (11th of Siwan 5751).  In Eretz Yisrael when they landed it was Parshat be'Ha'alotcha not Parshat Nasso.  At the very end of Parshat Be'Ha'alotcha Miriam, the sister of Moshe gets tzara'at (leprosy) because she spoke lashon hara about her brother marrying a black woman!  No joke.  This was the Parshah in that miraculous two year period of 5750 and 5751 when HaShem rescued the Nidachim b'Eretz Mitzraim, the Beita Yisrael of Ethiopia.  So if anyone wants to challenge the Vilna Gaon on the veracity of his word that that Second Shofar blast for Geulah has already occurred over 30 years ago, you will need to challenge the established historical facts.  וְהָיָה בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, יִתָּקַע בְּשׁוֹפָר גָּדוֹל, וּבָאוּ הָאֹבְדִים בְּאֶרֶץ אַשּׁוּר, וְהַנִּדָּחִים בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם has already occurred. 

There is only one Shofar blast left, and it is occurring as I write this.  And contrary to what many say, the Shofar blast in Zekharia 9 that brings Mashiach relates to WW3 beginning in Yemen.  The last Shofar blast for Geulah in Shofarot Rosh HaShanah is:

Zekharia 9:14  יד  וַיהוָה עֲלֵיהֶם יֵרָאֶה, וְיָצָא כַבָּרָק חִצּוֹ; וַאדֹנָי יְהוִה בַּשּׁוֹפָר יִתְקָע, וְהָלַךְ בְּסַעֲרוֹת תֵּימָן. 14 And the LORD shall be seen over them, and His Arrow (Missile) shall go forth as the lightning (Laser-guided?); and the Lord GOD will blow HIS own personal ram's horn, and will go with Stormwinds of Yemen.

This prophesy above is the Final Shofar blast for Redemption.  Take it to the Judge.  Because of the late hour, I will continue at a later time, hopefully before we might lose Electricity near the beginning of Adar Sheini.

Kol Tov Reb Dov!

An anagram of Ashur is Rusha [Russia].

Yesterday Major-General Yitzhak Brik made serious criticisms of the techniques and training of the IDF.
No one doubts the bravery and ingenuity of the soldiers.

But the IDF casualties in this war are high, and Major-General Brik explains how this is because of poor operational co-ordination about how to enter a booby trapped building.

Many troops have died because of that, rather than shot in fire fights.

I wonder whether the final shofar blast might contain two distinct notes: the stormwinds of Teman, and the announcement of Mashiach ben Yosef and/or ben David; or whether they will be separate.

Here is the pasuk that immediately precedes the one from Zekh 9:14.

Zekh 9:13.
יג כִּי-דָרַכְתִּי לִי יְהוּדָה, קֶשֶׁת מִלֵּאתִי אֶפְרַיִם, וְעוֹרַרְתִּי בָנַיִךְ צִיּוֹן, עַל-בָּנַיִךְ יָוָן; וְשַׂמְתִּיךְ, כְּחֶרֶב גִּבּוֹר. 13 For I bend Judah for Me, I fill the bow with Ephraim; and I will stir up thy sons, O Zion, against thy sons, O Javan, and will make thee as the sword of a mighty man.

It seems to refer to an inflection point in Adar Sheini in the Year of The Final Redemption where Mashiach Ben Ephraim finishes his Avodah in Adar Sheini so that the "Era of Mashiach ben David" can begin by Rosh Chodesh Nissan that very year.

That expose is dynamite. At first I reacted in disbelief, but then I remembered we have a history of attacking our own people due to political infighting. We sunk an entire ship and fired on its inhabitants! So anything is possible. There were so many system failures that day. I have an entire list, by a time-clock.

Please be careful about any political theory or expose of why the October 7th attacks happened.
There are a lot of conflicting theories.

Writers can use the attacks to attach blame based on their prejudices.

That Hilltop Youth link Neshama posted at 3/06/2024 6:09 PM blames the centre and the left, whose motivation was to get Bibi out of office and to make money from the Mediterranean gas fields.

By contrast you can read other "exposes" which blame the right/Religious Zionists for allowing the attacks as a means to reconquer Gaza, and to keep Bibi in office, delay his corruption trial, and keep him out of prison.

There are also stories in the press that Sinwar gave the go ahead for the attacks of his own accord, without consultation with other Hamas leaders, Iran and Hezbollah.

Yet other reports conflict with this, and point to a high degree of assistance from Iran and North Korea.

They also claim that the attacks were launched to try and prevent any peace deal between Israel and Saudi Arabia.

There was a lot of Dereliction of Duty on October 6th and before that which allowed October 7th to happen. But there are two Generals in the Top Brass where there is a very strong suspicion, at the very least, where there MAY be more than just Dereliction of Duty, where their actions were so blatantly derelict that we have a right to strongly suspect Conspiracy to allow some sort of terror attack to occur in order to bring down Netanyahu's Govt. Those men: (Aharon Haliwa and Yaron Finkelman). Of course, everyone is innocent until proven guilty. But at the very least, these 2 men should be immediately stripped of their commands and should be sitting in a brig or a jail awaiting trial. The fact that they are still in charge of their commands defies explanation. Of course, they have the right to muster a Defense in Court to defend their otherwise inexplicable actions on October 6th or in the early morning hours of October 7th.

As far as the Hilltop Youth are concerned, I am about 50% convinced that on one of those hills, you will find Beit Mashiach ben David. I do not think on ALL their hills, but on one of those hills.

As far as supporting them financially on their website, the Erev Rav is working with the Americans to weed out any possible Messianic figure. As we have seen, the Definition of Extremist in the mind of Biden's puppeteers might involve freezing the bank account of anyone who financially supports them. Be forewarned.

Does anyone not believe that America has conspired against Israel for the sake of neft? And speaking about top brass in the IDF, apparently they are floating an idea to give arms to the Gazans who don't like Hamas. What, do they have some kind of Cain mark on their foreheads?

Yes, the mention in the SOTU Address of building a Port for Hamas? in Gaza ostensibly, to provide "humanitarian" aid for the mythical Pal Arab people, is the 70 nations challenging G-d Almighty for the eventual outcome of this war. Esav is trying to claim his 50% of Eretz Yisrael as an inheritance from Yitzchak Avinu by giving his 50% to this mythical non-existent Pal Arab people. It is the Shlav Bet (Phase 2) of GogUMagog where Edom goes to war against G-d Himself. It starts in full in the Summer months. Demoncrat America is now our mortal enemy, more dangerous than Iran. If you have been voting for them starting with Obama's 2nd term in 2012, you may have forfeited your Olam HaBa. Your sin is grievous from the rivers of Jewish blood pouring through your fingers by voting for such coarsely evil people. Teshuvah for this is necessarily difficult because of the rising tide of Jews who have died as a direct result of your chosen candidates' victories.

Dov,
The H.W. Bush part is interesting also. Perhaps that was seen as oppertune at the time to facilitate Israel. Possibly as exchange for Israel not attacking Iraq, and or public opinion was as such. Or was it just good lobbying ? In any case Bush was part of another storm also called Dessert Storm, a name or thing bound to happen mentioned by Jeremiah if I am not mistaken ?
Whatever; klipa noga has a way to oscillate between better and not so good, or that is a concept I picked up. So in my humble understanding it's like that. Just as the Phoenicians were once allied with Shlomo HaMelech, just as before and after they were not ?! Or not so much, or not now anyway. Hope is that perhaps peace will come once again with Levanon one day.
The hanging clock swung once again to the other side. Many people don't want the Israeli President at a Holocaust remembrance in Amsterdam because of a genocidal war against a poor innocent people that his country is waging were they demolish, shoot, and starve deliberately, and some say they even rape their opponents. Those flags and shawls are abundant in public view, and it's not blue and white.
Goyim siding with an Islamic terror organisation. Apart from being presented a smart playbook by their leadership including sophisticated propaganda, it must have hit a nerve somewhere. It must have resonated in their ancient yetzer hara sinah for the Holy Nation.
By the way I saw a video a while back of an actor with a rubber Biden mask on. So a body double. CIA had been working with special affects of Hollywood apparently. Leaking such video's and than denying them and calling it a conspiracy theory could be all part of it as well. Besides legitimate reporting by folks on the net who get blocked later and stuff.
So because people mentioned it here, I thought it was okay to write this also. The stand in Biden is much more energetic, this is an open secret on the net. If I was in the audience I would have shouted: " pressure Hamas, not Israel " and I was hoping for Ted Cruz maybe to do something like that. But I suppose that if you are of the liberal believe system it was a nice State of the Union speech from a parallel universe. For however long that lasts.
Woke LGTBQ is a conversion of al social values, even breaking into the more spiritual make up of the human beings themselves in my conviction, think astral bodies, chakras, or a demonic fall down in the sephirah of tiferet into lower areas as we would call them. (As I once wrote about here, and sources can be provided) And now you have to tolerate their degenerated aura, or even adjust to that. That is now the new normal, just as Qatar is your new friend. Parallel conversions go hand in hand. But that those people responsible for something like that would work together with a country as Qatar ? That is completely counter intuitive and thus in the blind spot of most humans since Islam officially don't like gays. This and Jew hatred. So they let it happen to them. Thinking logically and acting normally under Noahide Law would have prevented that. Never mind anyway that Jews are the canaries in the coal mine. It must be sad for G'd also, almost 6000 years and this is the level ? Okay, the leaders of Edom need to block or tap into the Holy Energy of Eretz Ysrael, and it's inhabitants. The result is chaos in the world, and they know that. G' d should deal with them, and they don't wanna know that. Ultimate chutzpa, or in Amsterdam gotspe as it is called.

I have not wrapped my head around how this is the 8th year if the War in the Ukraine started over 2 years ago during the Shmittah year. I do know that until Shavuot 5784, we are in the 8th year since the Pulse Night Club Terrorist attack when America fell below the 49th level of impurity.

Chaza"l make clear that in their opinion, Eliyahu will show up miraculously in the first two weeks of Nissan in the year of the Final Redemption by placing the Haftarah of the last chapter in Malakhi on Shabbat HaGadol before Pesach.

3/10/2024 3:20 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Eliyahu haNavi comes for 4 purposes:
1. To give us Besorot Tovot Yeshuot veNechamot

2. To inspire Teshuvah before the Great and Awesome Day of the L-rd, probably in Hoshana Rabbah 5785. It is pretty basic. We are at the End of History. At the beginning of Israel as a Nation coming out of Mitzraim, we could be FULLY Redeemed on Pesach, with unfinished character growth and unrectified and unforgiven Sins. We had many Gilgulim throughout history in front of us to finally get it right. At the end of history, part of our Yetzer HaRa is about to be removed from us in the Messianic Era. So we need one more Teshuvah season for Beinonim to finally get it right. So the final Judgement on the Wicked can only be on Hoshana Rabbah at the end of the Year (Sukkot 5785 hopefully) after one more Yom Kippur. This time though Eliyahu will have told us what we need to repent for, taking away the secrecy of that Teshuvah season. This is why the Mishna in Eiduyot 2 says that b'itah the final aspects of GogUMagog, where in phase 2 the 70 nations come to War against G-d over half of Yerushalayim, ends during Sukkot one year after all this began.

3. To reconstitute the Sanhedrin and to decide on certain confusing aspects of Jewish Law

4. Ultimately to anoint Mashiach ben David as king either soon after Pesach, on Shavuot, or early on in the year 5785 after Hoshana Rabbah (if this yr 5784 is that year of the War).

More later...

In short, We actually are not fully clear when Ben David shows up in the process between Pesach 5784 and Shemini Atzereth or Cheshvan 5785. The prophets of Israel remained secretive about that. Maybe it might even be Tisha B'Av. What matters is this process is not another Churban. We will know evidentiarily that we are in Geulah by Pesach. Perhaps the Coming of Eliyahu will only be "seen" by Tzaddikim and Beinonim who are being given the opportunity to repent one more time? Rav Meir Shapiro zt"l wrote a Sefer in 1912 which points to the end of Adar II 5784 when Tzaddiqim and Beinonim will see the Or Ganuz in their Dwellings during a Plague of Darkness.

On these 2 verses from Shemot 10 about the Plague of Darkness. Plague of Fiery hail came probably with the full moon of Adar Rishon in 2448, and Locusts came with the full moon of Adar Sheini. There is evidence from what the hail destroyed that 2448 had 2 Adars. Yet, Darkness came immediately after the Locusts because for the 3rd, 6th, and 9th plagues, there was no warning to Pharoah and the Egyptians. So that would place the Plague of Darkness in the last week of Adar Sheini.

כב וַיֵּט מֹשֶׁה אֶת-יָדוֹ, עַל-הַשָּׁמָיִם; וַיְהִי חֹשֶׁךְ-אֲפֵלָה בְּכָל-אֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם, שְׁלֹשֶׁת יָמִים. 22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days;
כג לֹא-רָאוּ אִישׁ אֶת-אָחִיו, וְלֹא-קָמוּ אִישׁ מִתַּחְתָּיו--שְׁלֹשֶׁת יָמִים; וּלְכָל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל הָיָה אוֹר, בְּמוֹשְׁבֹתָם. 23 they saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days; but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.


Rash"i says that there were 2 periods of Darkness, three days each. Three days of total Darkness + three days where the Darkness was substantive so that no one could move. So there were 6 days of Darkness in Mitzraim near the end of Adar Sheini.

So Rav Meir Shapiro zt"l in his Sefer Ohr Le'Meir published in 2012 or early 2013 (10 years before he started the Daf Yomi movement which still takes place today), comments on this part of the verse: וּלְכָל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל הָיָה אוֹר, בְּמוֹשְׁבֹתָם.

He notes that the Gematriah of במשבתם without a Vav is 784. He then makes the absent Vav the Millennial number (the 6th Millennium). This was also done by Esther in the Megillah, where in the names to the 10 sons of Haman, there was a תש"ז reduced in size in their names and an enlarged Vav for the year 5707 when the 10 Nazis convicted to be hung at Nuremberg, were hung on the Gallows on Hoshana Rabbah 5707.

So 35 years before the Nuremberg hangings, Rav Shapiro did the same, removing the Vav from במושבתם to leave במשבתם (784) and then making the Vav the 6th millennium for the year 5784.

So Rav Shapiro comments: It is known that the Redemption from Mitzraim was an all-inclusive Redemption which hinted to the future Redemption that will take place by the hands of our righteous Mashiach ben David, during which the (Ohr haGenuz) hidden light from the Creation of the Universe will be revealed. This is hinted in the verse from Genesis:

ב וְהָאָרֶץ, הָיְתָה תֹהוּ וָבֹהוּ, וְחֹשֶׁךְ, עַל-פְּנֵי תְהוֹם; וְרוּחַ אֱלֹהִים, מְרַחֶפֶת עַל-פְּנֵי הַמָּיִם. 2 Now the earth was unformed and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters.

וְהָאָרֶץ, הָיְתָה תֹהוּ וָבֹהוּ, וְחֹשֶׁךְ, עַל-פְּנֵי תְהוֹם. hints at the four exiles. Tohu (Chaos?) is Babylon. UVohu (Something in the Chaos) is Persia. חושך (Darkness) is Greece. And תהום (The Abyss) is Rome. Continued....

Tehom should be translated as an Abyss. Tohu is Unformed and Chaotic. Bohu means something in it which might not have mass. Continuing...

וְרוּחַ אֱלֹהִים, מְרַחֶפֶת עַל-פְּנֵי הַמָּיִם.
And the Spirit of Elokim hovered on the face of the Waters. This refers to the Coming of the Spirit of Mashiach. And G-d said, "Let there be Light". This refers to the Light of Mashiach that will be revealed, for this was revealed for Israel in the Plague of Darkness in Mitzraim from the Light in the future that will be in the the Days of our Righteous Mashiach ben David. So, for this reason, the Gematriah of במשבתם is 784 (with the Vav 5784). David דוד (Gematriah 14) was (halfway in history from Adam to Mashiach specifically from when he began to reign in ירושלים (in 2892 according to Seder Olam when he was 37 1/2 yrs old. I will check this.)

So Rav Shapiro multiplied David x 2 to get 28 (כ"ח). And 28²= 784. (Here once again Rav Shapiro writes 5784. I am not sure why he adds 5000 to 784 at this point).

Continuing: The ensign מלך ישראל קים is 781. Including the 3 words is 784! (Again Rav Shapiro writes 5784 instead of 784). As the Ariza"l HaQodesh said with it,
that then אור הלבנה יהיה כאור החמה.
(The light of the full moon will be like the light of the Sun.)

If he had not written this over 110 years ago and had written this today, would this still be amazing? I will look at this quote from the Ariza"l tomorrow.

My mistake, one mistake because of the late hour. He writes תשפ"ד which is 784, not 5784 for those Gematriahs above. But he still assumed the Millenial number Vav (6) which was removed from במושבתם to get במשבתם. So the Gematriahs that were 784 assumed that it was in the 6th Millennium. My mistake. Good night.

This was a comment to Yehonatan’s entry to politics on RH Adar:
"Maybe that's what Rabbi Mordekhai Eliyahu meant when he said that Pollard's fate or freedom (don't remember exactly) was linked to the Geulah/Mashiah.

If he enters politics, he should maybe launch a new party under his leadership, rather than integrate a party that already has an agenda. Or challenge Netanyahu in the Likud primaries. What I mean is that instead of being a joker for another politician (like Netanyahu tried to do, by recruiting him in the Likud) he should only accept to be the leader of a party. If not Likud, then maybe he should found his own.

Many people respect him and trust him."

Yes. Not just the Rebbe though. The pedigree ancestry of the Mashiach ben "Yosef" PM in Zekharia 12:12-13 is too specific to describe anyone else other than Binyamin Netanyahu (Levite from the House of Natan who wants to destroy Amaleq in the Persian Empire like Shimi ben Geira's descendants Mordechai and Esther) as the last Prime Minister of the pre-Messianic "kingdom". The Yichus described there is too specific to be casually brushed aside. It is a marvel that Zekharia prophesied this 2600 years ago. And this last leader/PM described there is Bibi Netanyahu. THE time has to be now since Good prophesies must come true.

If Pollard is here to make a difference, Bibi is still the "Melekh".

Rav Mileikowsky would use his regular name when he wrote Divrei Torah, but when he wrote about Torah Zionism, he signed his essays "Netanyahu" which became the last name for all his descendants that leaned toward Zionism.and its goals. So his first name Natan became part of his pseudonym for screeds and essays on Zionism which became the Last name for his descendants.

I wrote a major post years ago.

Bibi is the 5th Mashiach ben Yosef who gets his Yichus to destroy Amaleq in the Persian Empire from Shimi ben Geira (Zekharia 12). He lacks the trigger finger to carry out his mission because of his lack of Emunah.

The one who will actually succeed will be the 6th and final Mashiach ben Ephraim, Yehonatan Pollard. All connections to to either Ephraim or Binyamin are Matrillinear.

This is where the "things will get a lot Worse" commenters above have a valid point. The Erev Rav Generals and the Defense Minister will be running into a potential "failure" when the War from Hezbollah goes into full swing. They will not be successful in a War against Hezbollah using Western rules of Engagement while also fighting Hamas in Rafach, rules imposed on us and only on us. Things will likely reach a point of "catastrophic" failure. Bibi will likely end up finally firing them all. And hiring his Ace in the hole Yehonatan Pollard as Defense Minister. This is how I see things going down in the near term.

Both Lunar and Solar Eclipses can be known hundreds/ thousands of years before they occur. Yet, our Rabbis say that a solar eclipse by the moon presages the downfall of Edom whose calendar is 100% solar. Therefore the fact, that this is the 2nd continental US solar eclipse in 7 years like an X marks the spot, MIGHT presage an American collapse. Since these things are simanim and are not in control of events, it is hard to predict beyond the ominous implications. Also Lunar eclipses are often bad signs for Israel, but what usually happens is that a full solar eclipse is often preceded or followed by a full lunar eclipse 14 days before or after, making it very difficult to know who has to deal with the bad omen. G-d rarely lets us know in advance which side is about to get whacked.

There was an observation on one or two Xtian sites that the totality path of the Solar Eclipse in August of 2017 crossed over 7 cities named Salem (indicating 7 years of Peace for America starting in Aug of 2017). This eclipse according to these sites will cross over 7 cities named Nineveh, indicating imminent doom on America after allowing for 40 days of Repentance. I have checked the veracity of this claim about the path of totality this coming Rosh Chodesh Nissan and found two cities named Nineveh in the actual path of totality (Nineveh, Texas and Nineveh, Indiana). The other states that will experience totality also have a Nineveh in their states, but none of these Ninevehs are in the totality path of 2024.

Except here when warning America about her fate, only 2 witnesses are necessary since there is no need to testify about America's imminent destruction in 7 years time. So the Path of Totality precisely over 2 cities named Nineveh (in Texas and in Indiana) next Rosh Chodesh constitutes a legitimate testimonial Warning of America's immediate destruction or dissolution 40 days later after the Eclipse on the 10th or 11th of Iyar (if that is what is actually happening here.)

Gem. Megillah 3a:
R. Jeremiah — or some say R. Hiyya b. Abba — also said: The Targum of the Pentateuch was composed by Onkelos the proselyte under the guidance of R. Eleazar and R. Joshua. The Targum of the Prophets was composed by Yonatan ben Uzziel under the guidance of Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi, and the land of Israel [thereupon] quaked over an area of four hundred parasangs by four hundred parasangs, and a Bath Kol8 came forth and exclaimed, Who is this that has revealed My secrets to mankind? Jonathan b. Uzziel thereupon arose and said, It is I who have revealed Thy secrets to mankind. It is fully known to Thee that I have not done this for my own honour or for the honour of my father's house, but for Thy honour l have done it, that dissension may not increase in Israel. He further sought to reveal [by] a targum [the inner meaning] of the Hagiographa (Holy Writings and Daniel), but a Bath Kol went forth and said, Enough! What was the reason? — Because the date of the Messiah is foretold in it.

But did Onkelos the proselyte compose the targum to the Pentateuch? Has not R. Ika said in the name of R. Hananel who had it from Rab: What is meant by the text, And they read in the book, in the law of God, with an interpretation. and they gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading?13 ‘And they read in the book, in the law of God’: this indicates the [Hebrew] text; ‘with an interpretation’: this indicates the targum,14 ‘and they gave the sense’: this indicates the verse stops; ‘and caused them to understand the reading’: this indicates the accentuation,15 or, according to another version, the massoretic notes?16 — These had been forgotten, and were now established again.

How was it that the land did not quake because of the [translation of the] Pentateuch, while it did quake because of Targum Yonatan's translation of the prophets? — The meaning of the Pentateuch is expressed clearly, but the meaning of the prophets is in some things expressed clearly and in others enigmatically. [For instance,] it is written (Zekh12:11) , In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon, and R. Joseph [commenting on this] said: Were it not for the Targum Yonatan of this verse, we should not know what it means. [It runs as follows]: ‘On that day shall there be great mourning in Jerusalem like the mourning of Ahav son of Omri who was killed by Hadadrimmon son of Rimmon in Ramoth Gilead and like the mourning of Josiah son of Ammon who was killed by Pharaoh Necho in the plain of Megiddo’.

From this we learn, based on Yonatan ben Uziel that the last PM before Ben David, the Levite from the House of Natan, will spend most of his political career in rebellion against G-d like Achav, but will love his nation like Achav too. In the end he does teshuvah like Yoshiyahu ben Ammon of Yehudah.
This we learned from the Targum Yonatan. This PM is Bibi Netanyahu.

Hekla (Icelandic pronunciation: [ˈhɛhkla] ⓘ), or Hecla,[2][3] is an active stratovolcano in the south of Iceland with a height of 1,491 m (4,892 ft). Hekla is one of Iceland's most active volcanoes; over 20 eruptions have occurred in and around the volcano since the year 1210.[4] During the Middle Ages, the Icelandic Norse called the volcano the "Gateway to Hell" and the idea spread over much of Europe.

After the eruption of 1104, stories, probably spread deliberately through Europe by Cistercian monks, told that Hekla was the gateway to Hell.

The Ge Ben Hinnom Valley to the Southwest of Jerusalem's Western hill only became an "entrance to hell" when the Wicked Judean King Menashe started to sacrifice his children to the fires of Molekh there, committing Murder and Idolatry at the same time. There is a road that one can take today and drive through the gorge (the Ge) from the southwest corner of the Old City to the lower section of the City of David without encountering even one active volcano! But the Sins of Menashe were so wicked that the Divine Presence has not returned to the Temples in Yerushalayim until the present day, justifying its reputation until Yemot HaMashiach.

In order for that revelation to occur, though, first there must be a total severance from what it is now. Just like Abraham Avinu And Sarah were not able to have children. In the physical world it was impossible. And then H took over. One man's opinion.

I believe H is going to use AI to make the whole world know who He is!

Through technology. The very instrument that no one would expect H to come through.

The Delay here on earth in Israel is that right now there is an ongoing attempted "coup" an attempt to overthrow our govt being run by The Reprobate 55% of America including 98% of the Demoncrat Party. Leftist Kapo Jews (Americans and some Israelis) have taken lead roles in this attempted coup. All who voted for Schumer in New York for Senator and for Biden have blood running through their hands. It is painful to write this, but it is true. And I will not avoid the Truth. If Bibi survives this coup, there will be a cleansing out of these evil people. They will lose their ranks and positions in a counter-coup.

When thinking about the transition between Adar Sheini and Nissan 5784, based on the pregnancy which began on Rosh Chodesh Av 5783 described in Ari Goldwag's Moshiach #17 podcast, one of the items that popped up in my mind is the Murder of Mashiach ben Yosef from Zekh 12 in Adar Sheini. I never wanted to discuss it because in a war with so many dead soldiers and Civilians, I did not want to discuss this prophesied Assassination. And to be honest, as expected, this subject is causing a lot of pain. This "attempted ongoing assassination" by so many evil people and many Erev Rav Jews does not delay the Final Redemption if it leads to the other matters discussed on this blog for that transition between Mashiach ben Yosef and the era of Mashiach ben David in Nissan. So we wait, pray, and see.

Bibi on Shushan Purim is being forced by the Hand of Heaven to turn to G-d. For us to survive, he must lead us all in repentance for our dependency upon the Umot HaOlam for our Defense, for all the withdrawals from Eretz Yisrael since 1967, and for compromising with the Erev Rav.

Yehoshua bin Nun in his lifetime never conquered Gaza nor the southern 2/3rds of Lebanon. And even though King David and his General Yoav did conquer Lebanon up to Aleppo, Syria, he never succeeded in conquering Gaza to the Coast. And they never removed the Hittites and the Gevalim from Southern and Central Lebanon, and he never extended the territorial inheritance of the Northernmost tribes, Asher and Naftali into Lebanon. (I will check all this at home.) I believe that David did conquer the inland parts of Philistia, in particular the area around Ekron, but he never conquered ancient Gaza City. Chizkiyahu haMelekh did conquer the northern half of the Gaza Strip (with the help of the Assyrians' depopulation of the Merman fish god worshiping Pelishtim). He conquered the Gaza coast down to the fort next to the ancient Netzarim lighthouse in Central Gaza. Chizkiyahu never extended Judea to Khan Younis or Rafiach.

Completely agree with Gavriela Devorah and Neshama : the CIA created Daesh (Hillary admitted it in public hearings), and Isis as well (Trump said so in 2016)...the butchery in Moscow seems to be linked to Obiden's regime (Gog)

Anyway I am very happy Bibi is doing teshouva and refuses to let Hamas alive and withdraw from Gaza
By the way, Bibi's refusal to bend to Biden/Blinken and all the others (UN...) could very well be THE LAST STROKE FOR BIDEN'S REELECTION...
For those who followed the Democrats' primaries in Michigan lately, the extreme left and pro Islamic American citizens are very very angry at Joe...because in their view he supports Israel too much ... so they will probably not vote for him in November, if they do not vote against him...
Sounds like the plague of the firstborns in Egypt : the Evil are starting to fight each other
So maybe, we are witnessing Bibi killing the last hope for the bad part of Essav (Biden and Democrats) to stay in office, and Trump (the Good part of Essav) coming back in 8 months...

A big part of what needs to happen now is the firing of all the Erev Rav Generals and the Erev Rav Defense Minister. They do not have the Emunah capacity in their souls to only depend upon G-d and not the opinion of the Nations of the World. Itamar Ben Gvir has this capacity in his soul. He calls it a new "Conception". I believe the Hebrew word he uses is a מושג.

It is a spiritual quality which frees up the righteous to ignore the Noise of World Public Opinion. Both Benny Gantz and Yoav Gallant are incapable of doing that. I cannot see how we win this war with those two men making existential decisions or giving anyone existential advice. Frankly, I am at a loss to figure out how we get rid of them. The faster they are gone now, the better. We are spiritually at Rechovot, alone in the world with G-d, and these two anti-G-d bozos are still "running this war."

**Consider the interesting connection: the hurricane in the US that followed the evacuation of Gush Katif, the ongoing influx of potential terrorists across the southern US border, and the situation in Gaza (Sderot, etc.)**

The proposed bridge that the Americans want to build in Gaza is approximately the same distance from Jerusalem as the bridge that collapsed today is from Washington DC. The collapse was caused by a boat transporting goods (trucks bringing food to fakestines)It's worth noting these parallels and their implications. Does anyone see the connection between these events?

The Maersk Shipping Cargo ship that accidently hit the pier of the Bridge when the ship lost power, was the first company to announce their intent to send their cargo ships around the Horn of Africa because of Houthi missiles from Yemen in the Gulf of Aden. And for a short period of time Maersk tried unsuccessfully to send ships through the Red Sea only to be deterred by more missiles from Yemen. But they are one of the largest Shipping companies in the world, headquartered in Denmark. So there probably is nothing "remarkable" about that. But I am taking mental notes.

I see a strong message for those able to see. As noted, the bridge is named for Francis Scott Key, who wrote the National Anthem. It symbolizes America's might. After betraying Israel, which is expected of course since America is Eisav, Hashem brought down the bridge symbolizing America's might. Ergo, Eisav is trending downward. I would have preferred to see Hashem do to Biden what he did to the Turkish MK but...okay they still have some zehut. Now, we just need our yidden leadership over here to start trending upward. b'ezrat Hashem.

I will not be voting for Trump or Biden of course this time around because Trump expresses more concern for our PR and what others think about us than the justice of our cause. He is not the same candidate that he was in 2016. and if he is in Office, I think he will be hostile to Israel. (He will no longer need Fundamentalist Xtian support once he is a lame duck.) Plus he is too old for another 4 yr term. Not voting for Biden does not even need or require an explanation.

So if There actually is a Presidential election in Nov 2024, and if RFK Jr. is also deficient in his decency, then I simply will not vote.

Hear Oh Israel, You are no longer popular, Oh Israel. ,Thus sayeth Trump. I appreciated his first term, but a second term for Trump will be his day to take revenge against all the Jews who tried to put him in prison. And against Bibi for congratulating Biden on his victory which is what foreign leaders often do to congratulate a Pres-elect.

Trump made very public critical comments about Bibi after the election defeat by Biden.
It was as if to say that as Trump had stood up for Israel, Bibi should stand up for Trump.
Trump believed that the elections were rigged, the polling machines hacked into by the Chinese.
He wanted Bibi to back him in this.
It must be noted that Bibi took a day or so to phone Biden to congratulate him.
I imagine this delay was spent with the Mossad and other intelligence branches trying to find out if the voting had been hacked in to.
When they could not produce evidence, Bibi had no choice but to phone Biden to congratulate him.

Israel has very few friends internationally, it is more isolated than in many years.
Perhaps Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic, who fear radical Islam.
A few South Pacific islands.
Liberia.
And Guatemala (descendants of the Mayans who had ancient links to Israel) and strangely Paraguay.

The USA and the UK have largely turned.
Though I do think that the higher echelons in British intelligence and special forces are still very pro Israel. They know the value of the intelligence and military co operation.

Well now the entire world is against Israel including Trump so the end must be close. As my good rabbi friend has said "Bring it on, let's get with it, let's see what HaShem has to say about it".

Trump would be against Israel ? Is this a joke ?
The President who "gave" Jerusalem to Israel, moved the Embassy, "gave" the Golan Heights, defunded PLO and Iran and Unwra, started the Abraham Accords... are we all become blind or crazy because of our sufferings ?

I remember the problem between Trump and Bibi in 2020 : Bibi was THE FIRST leader to call Biden to congratulate him, the very first after all Trump did for US and when the results of 2020 elections were still disputed... I understand very well that Trump were very angry against Bibi, some would call Bibi's act a treason toward a real friend of Israel (even though I would consider Bibi being first interested in the US support for Israel, which is not so bad).
Nevertheless, time passed and the two leaders are OK now

Reb Dov, on the video what Trump is really saying to Israel is "go quick and finish Hamas once for all, stop talking and deliberating, because the footages from Gaza are spreading all around the world in social medias, and they are very terrible for the support toward Israel. And THEN you can make peace with the Saudis in the Abraham Accords". That is really what Trump means.
I believe he is 100% accurate, and it's a very precious advice Bibi should apply asap instead of waiting months and months to defeat Hamas.

Now, what about the fact that Trump will want to take revenge to all the EREV RAV Jews that have been attacking him since years ?
Is that bad for us ? Noooo ! It is exactly what we need because those same Erev Rav Jews are the ones who are ALSO constantly attacking Bibi (and the right and the religious and the Zionists) and they are our greater threat, like the Vilna Gaon said in sefer Kol Hator (about Armilous the leader of the Erev Rav : "this is the most bitter war against the Erev Rav")...

I don't think the Dems are going to allow Trump to be elected. I don't know what they'll do, but you can be sure they will do something. One reason for the illegal mass invasion is that they will give the right to vote to these people who don't even speak English so they will vote for their benefactor--Biden. The Dems do not intend to ever give up power. After the election, or before, there will most likely be mass civil unrest, resulting perhaps in states seceding and whenever there is chaos, it's never good for the Yidden. They should leave before November. As for Trump's attitude toward Israel. He does bear grudges and he's unpredictable. There's no sure way to know if he will be friendly or not. But it doesn't matter. We need to spend less time worrying about how leaders or potential leaders of the goyim nations feel about Israel and more about how Hashem feels about Israel.

Here is the order of phone calls Biden made after his election as President.


From: https://www.axios.com/2020/11/12/world-leaders-biden-call-election

Monday November 9th: Biden began with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada.
Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador might have been next — but he has declined to congratulate Biden.

Tuesday November 10th: Biden moved on to European allies: French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Irish Prime Minister Micheál Martin.

Wednesday November 11th, Biden moved to the Asia-Pacific: Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

Thursday November 12th, Biden talked with Pope Francis. He spoke with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte the following day.

Biden resumed the calls on Tuesday November 17.

He called both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.
President Trump, by contrast, spoke only with Netanyahu.



The Times of Israel also reported on a long delay in Netanyahu congratulating Biden after the election win.

https://www.timesofisrael.com/after-hours-of-silence-netanyahu-and-rivlin-congratulate-biden-on-election-win/



After a conspicuously long hiatus, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin issued statements early Sunday morning (congratulating Joe Biden after his US election win.

“Congratulations @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris. Joe, we’ve had a long & warm personal relationship for nearly 40 years, and I know you as a great friend of Israel,” Netanyahu wrote on his personal Twitter account at 7 a.m. in Israel (midnight EST), more than 12 hours after US media networks called the presidency for Biden.

“I look forward to working with both of you to further strengthen the special alliance between the US and Israel.”

I think Maurice is right. The order in which Biden returned the calls is irrelevant, what matters is that Netanyahu was the first to call him.
Also, I recall another open phone call between Trump and Netanyahu, a little before the 2020 elections, where Trump sort of was trying to get Bibi's support, but he refused to give it. I think Bibi ought to have given the credit to Trump, and he could have done it without speaking against Biden, but he chose to be neutral. At least he could have said sth to the tune "Mr President, I think you did a great job... and this act of yours will go down in History".
(Here is the link to the exact moment, to hear how Bibi replied https://youtu.be/-zppQomT884?t=664) To my understanding, Trump was very disappointed and cut Bibi off.
I was also disappointed when I heard him, then, and frankly, as a person who prayed and is still praying for both Trump and Netanyahu, I had the feeling that somehow Netanyahu had failed to give the credit to G-d in those days, and he felt it was his political skill that had brought the good results. Maybe that was why G-d allowed him to go down. It seems that he has made teshuva, and I hope he apologizes to Pr Trump personally, as well.
Finally, I would wish to point out that there is one thing the whole world should be grateful to Trump, and that thing is the elimination of ISIS. Trump couldn't say it openly at the time, by for those who watched, it was obvious that he had stopped the spreading of that cult of death and terror.

Mashiach ben Ephraim will replace the Erev Rav Generals somehow someway. And Ww3 in Yemen will reach the breakout point of no return.


Because of a 2nd post which I have not written, 2 things are preferable for Geulah b'Rachamim:

1. Ww3 in the Southern Red Sea in the vicinity of Yemen should begin PRIOR to an attack by or on Hezbollah in order to relieve international pressure on Israel to mount an appropriate Defense or invasion of Lebanon so that very few Jews die here during the transition between our Erev Rav Generals and D.M. to Mashiach ben Ephraim as D.M.

2. Because of the miraculous nature of the Final Redemption which will be needed to save us, the breakout of Ww3 would be preferable in the first week of Nissan, centering in on Rosh Chodesh Nissan itself.

Since the Tekiah of the Final Redemption leading to Ww3 in Yemen began on Rosh Chodesh Shevat, the beginning of the last trimester when the US and Britain started to bomb the Houthis in Yemen, the Tekiah Gedolah is a 3 month long Tekiah, corresponding to the 3 months of the last Trimester (Shevat, Adar Rishon, and Adar Sheini) of the pregnancy in Sanhedrin 12a from Ari Goldwag's Mashiach podcast #17. The 3 month long Tekiah Gedolah ends on Rosh Chodesh Nissan, however that is manifest in our physical world.

I wish we had not arrived at this point where up to 2/3rds of Mankind and 60% of Americans had fallen to a state of Reprobation below Mem Tet Shaarei Tumah from which repentance is almost impossible. But the b'itah condition in Zekharia 13 is locked into the fabric of Creation. The only way to bring the world back into spiritual balance will be a World War, and the Navi says it begins in Yemen and its environs with a third Shofar blast.

But American Reprobation is clear from the following Gallup survey.

https://www.foxnews.com/world/poll-finds-most-americans-dont-support-israels-action-gaza-biden-israel-relations-hit-low-point

This explains to me why Trump wanted Israel to win this war quickly so that our "popularity" did not continue to take a beating. 55% of Americans support Hamas's version of the story. After 7 Oct, one might think that most people would have a rudimentary understanding of the difference between Good and Evil. But this is not the case. 55% of Americans prefer Hamas's definition of what is Good over G-d's definition of what is good.

Only 36% understand that Civilians being used as shields will die in a war against the raw Evil committed on 7 Oct. And the evil committed on 7 Oct requires a response where sadly some innocent and many not so innocent Civilians get caught in the crossfire. I do not buy the brainwashing arguments that it is the Media's fault. Only a Reprobate would agree to have his/her own brain washed. There are way too many alternative media sources out there to get this basic divergence from human decency 100% wrong in one's head. And the blood of IDF soldiers who have died for their rules of engagement, those armchair pundits sitting in judgement of the Jews, is on the hands of the pundits being surveyed.

There is no way out of this mess except for Ww3 where measure for measure people (2/3 Of Mankind) who condemn the IDF for the loss of Civilian life will now need to fight a war where they themselves take multiples of Civilian lives in order to save themselves. They will say that they were not "targeting" Civilians, but G-d will simply say that neither were the Jews, but you have set the rules by which you will be judged totally based on the rules you have imposed on the Jews! And they will be condemned by their own rules of engagement which they demand of the IDF. This is how Measure for Measure works. I believe that this entire setup was built into the Beri'ah b'itah from the moment that Adam sinned. There is likely no other way out.

This is an ongoing conversation I have with a friend of mine. Will there be open miracles in this final war? Or will every miracle be completely within the confines of nature? For example so many missiles are launched towards Israel and none cause direct death. A miracle? Definitely. Totally natural? Also definitely. No suspension of the world's natural order.
When the Sages spoke of miracles thousands of years ago, please understand that to them, a Smart Phone able to talk with someone on the other side of the world and see them in real time, is indeed miraculous. Traveling to Eretz Yisrael "on eagles wings" was also a miracle to them. To us, airplanes are part of nature. I don't think there is any way to really know... until it actually happens.

Sad to say, but I think the war is definitely closing in on us. The Kaplan group and the Brothers in Arms have succeeded in co-opting the pain of the hostages' families, and all the same brands have announced a strike (with pay) to join a national protest to demand ...what exactly, I have no idea. There is an opposing group of hostage families and the families of the soldiers currently serving, plus those who have fallen in battle, but their voices are drowned out. These anarchists have picked up exactly from the point they left before Simchat Torah. Nothing was learned. We're stocking up on water.

Mark: Zombies kill. It matters not that they are rotting to the core. They are brutal creatures. They need to be destroyed. Have you ever watched "Night of the Living Dead?" They are monstrous. You think the Messianic Era will provide a place for Zombies?

The b'itah condition for the time of Redemption is 2/3rds of Mankind will be Zombie-like in the Core of their beings. We will not get close to spiritual catastrophe where only a Noah and his family will be saved. Zehkaria 13 says 2/3rds will be Zombie-beings. 2/3rds will be irredeemable. 1/3rd will still have a potential for morality and decency. The Vilna Gaon and others hint to a major heretofore unknown plague four years before the last great war. Yep, you heard it.. .. 4 years before 2024. Instead of a massive famine in the 3rd year of that last 7 year period, the Gaon and others pointed to a plague that most people who got that plague (1/3rd of Humaniy) would survive. Any guesses? Of course everyone knows what plague hit the world in 2020. No need to raise your hands. Somehow by an unknown mechanism, the suffering from the isolation, quarantines, and "the jab" created by THAT PLAGUE and those self-appointed experts sent to fight that plague, somehow, reduced the number that will die in this final war from 2/3rds to 1/3rd.

Rav Dov,

I believe, in Hashem's realm, it actually does matter if they have any ability to think for themselves. Just as witnesses and warning (Hasrah) are deciding factors in a person's fate in Jewish courts of law.

Also, no one thinks they will have a place in the Messianic era. Hashem has many ways of reforming people. Nuclear war and the death of millions is not the only option in His Arsenal.
Again, no one knows exactly what and how events will transpire. We all do know that negative prophecies do not necessarily have to come to fruition.

I will be the first to admit that perhaps I am naive. In general, I believe that covid-19 satisfied all of the requirements and consequences of a nuclear war. Not necessarily the virus itself, but the response to it by the vast majority of countries and people. Isolation, etc. and all the destructive rules that accompanied it.

Just one man's opinion.

Shavoua tov !

A couple of ideas :
- Covid crisis was surely that plague the Vilna Gaon ztsl foresaw. Yet, many many people were terrified to die because of the covid, which is a kappparah/expiation for death (Rabbi Mendel Kessin spoke in length about that subject : if you fear to die, in a certain sense, it's like if you died regarding to the Heavenly Court, so now mankind has paid its debt)
- the Zohar states that 1/3 or 2/3 of mankind would die in the war of Gog ouMagog, yet I do not believe it has to happpen this way for a couple of reasons :

1 A negative prophecy does not have to occur, especially if people repent ...just remember the Yonah Hanavi book we read on Yom Kippour : Nineveh made teshouva, and they were ALL saved. Now you see a lot of leftists/black/jews/liberals in the USA who want to vote for Trump instead of Biden... That is a teshouva, isn't it ?

2 I believe it is the Hafets Haïm who said that Gog ouMagog war would occur in 3 phases, and WW1 was the 1st.. then came WW2.. and tens of millions dead... and now we seem to have entered the 3rd stage... and he also said that the butchery/mass murderings would be in the 1st and second war, not in the 3rd we're now in ... I believe he said that would be mainly a spiritual war with lots of illusions... Anyway I don't "buy" the fear mongering I read here very often...

3 wheather you consider the last redemption will be like the 1st (from Egypt) or Purim, in both cases there were not so many deaths : in Egypt there were the leaders (the firstborns) and the military, and in Purim we read last week 75000 Amalekites were killed, plus 300 in the city of Shushan the capital of Persia... there again it was not 100% of the amakelite people (maybe 5% or 10% but mainly the leaders)... by the way some descendants of Amalekites converted to judaïsm became Rabbis and are quoted in the Mishna, so their people disappeared, but not the individuals

What we saw on the very day of Purim Shoushan when the USA did not prevent an UN condemnation of Israël, is a betrayal, in the one day which is even greater than Purim itself, so I believe Hashem has already an argument to destroy the Globalists/Left/Erev Rav who did that and turn the table on them

Speaking of Donald Trump, can anyone can give a positive fact-based explanation of the former president's presence in Davos, Switzerland for the exclusive World Economic Forum meetings there on at least two occasions (2018 and 2020)? One neutral explanation I can think of is that he was president at that time. But besides that?

It seems to me that he plays both sides. We all know he ran on the Republican ticket, and is greatly favored by a large segment of the American public, not to mention by many Israelis as well.

Here's a search on YouTube of Donald Trump at Davos; at least 9 videos can be found there or on links to others. What do you think? I will watch at least one of them along with you.

An interesting side note:
I read that the Egyptians of that time were not able to grow beards (for some odd reason maybe DNAish), so when the Brothers saw (Yosef) the Egyptian General, he was sporting a beard (so they say). That should surely have clued them in to something.

Not sure I will do justice to to your request. However, it seems to me after listening to part of his speech in the 2018 vid. the President of the US was promoting his approach, his "make everything better" my way. Ego and US power. (WEF decided to reduce his opponent).
We see what happened after this. It was decided to unleash the attack dog with a Biden presidency and take the US down, which is still in 'progress'. The latest of which is the "bridges caper" (following the war on food, war on water, war of fire on forests, ad infinitum) to reduce prosperity and the world's dependence on 'imports'. I may be eventually be wrong, but I don't think he's on their side (despite the grossly ugly propaganda to paint him other than what he is); I believe he really stands for freedom and prosperity and the USofA. However, it is really Hashem that empowers the leaders as HE leads the world toward the Geulah, which has always been the gameplan.

@HDG : Yes I remember very clearly when Trump went at the Davos Forum (I believe it was in 2018), and the reason why he went there is very simple, one just has to listen to what he said to all of them when he took the mic... he went like this : "The world does not belong to the globalists, but to the nations who cherish their past, values, and so on..."

So, basically the answer to your question is the following : Trump went there to tell them IN THEIR FACES they will never succeed in their project to rule the world.

I can recall the audience in Davos were in shock, and mainstream medias were shocked too, they did not expect such an "arrogant" speech in their own headquarters...

Maurice, you are right. Trump is defending America and the rights of other countries to prosper along with her in the videos I'm watching now.

The video I saw a couple of years ago had Mr. Trump saying that Klaus Schwab was doing a fantastic job. I didn't understand that to mean anything other than that he was on Schwab's side.

I found that video! "Donald Trump At The WEF: "Klaus (Schwab) Has Done A Fantastic Job..."" It's very short, 1 min, 20 sec., a section of a longer video apparently culled only a year ago.

Of course, it's out of context and Schwab was standing right next to him, so I could be wrong. But can you blame me for believing that someone in Trump's position couldn't be co-opted by the WEF?

Hi HDG and thank you

No I don't blame you for believing that Trump is siding with WEF at all, the video is strange and can lead to that conclusion
But I believe he said that juste BEFORE taking the mic and slapping all the WEF in their faces

So what was going on ?
I believe Trump is a very smart guy (he's the good part of Essav, but he's Essav, not a puppet !) : he knew he had to take the mic so that he would be heard all over the world, broadcasted by mainstream media that hate him and barely gave him that opportunity.
So he made Schwab a dirty trick : he said pretty nice things before entering the scene, Klaus was very happy, then he came on the stage and he slapped them in their faces, in their own forum in Switzerland and they were in shock !

Kind of a Trojan horse strategy lol

One step further, I also believe Trump knows that WEF leaders are really big stakeholders regarding money and industry (and jobs !), so he wants to bring them to HIS policies (let's say nationalist policies, good for the average american worker), instead of WEF policies that do not benefit to americans but China...

I might be wrong, but it fits perfectly with Trump's way of behaving, and his acting (and that's exactly what he want to do again when reelected : force the big companies to invest in jobs in the US instead of China)

No, only Bibi has the lineage specifically mentioned in Zekharia 12. He is a Levite from the House of Nathan (Natan) who has made it his lifelong mission to destroy Amaleq in the Persian Empire (like all the descendants of Shimi the grandson of Kish.)

Mikhael ben Tzvi:

Not so long ago, Rav Anava was talking about this two year period (5784 and 5785) as the two year period for Mashiach's coming based on the Seder Olam date for David's Monarchy (2875 from Adam's Sin). Since he reigned in Chevron for 7 1/2 years, his conquest of Yerushalayim was when he was 37 or 37 1/2 yrs old in 2882. Since King David's life is the midpoint of Olam HaZeh from the name אדם where the Dalet is David and the Mem is Mashiach ben David, then the Messianic Era according to this basic insight into David establishing the Capital City of the United Monarchy begins in the year 2882 x 2= 5784 or in the second half of 2882 which means the Messianic Era begins in 2882.5 x 2= 5785. This was Rav Anava's own calculation not that many years ago. I am not sure why he changed his mind.

4/05/2024 1:54 AM  
Blogger Gavriela Dvorah said...

In response to the previous comment about Rav Anava, why did he change his mind? Because no one has any real idea about anything. Some learned people, including Ravs make calculations and look at the current situation and make predictions. There are no Neviim today. No one is a Navi. No one has nevuah. There are tzadikkim with ruach hakodesh, but they speak very quietly to their closest circle. None of them make a prediction about the date of Moshiach's revelation. Rav Kook, our great tzaddik here in Tveria has told us that there is a very strong gazera on Israel. It was sweetened in beit din lamala due to the tefilah of a very closed beit din of tzaddikim here. Sweetened but not canceled. There was meant to be a massacre in both the north and the south. But the gezera continues and we must first pass through this. I look for Moshiach every day, literally. He's supposed to descend from the mountain behind where we live, so they say. So I look there. Talmid chacham, like our very own Dov Bar-Leib have a brilliant grasp on what the Torah teaches us and can give us pure interpretations of the signs that we witness today. But no one can tell us exactly when Moshiach will be revealed. And those who do, do more harm than good because people become disappointed or in some case they loose hope when hearing that it will be another 6,7,10 or whatever years.

The secret is this: Israel is heading towards complete and total isolation. The State is going to be undone. The UN giveth and the UN taketh. The truth is this is exactly what we want. That's when Hashem steps in.
Biden doesn't realize it but he is really pushing Israel towards redemption! The Epitome of: ונהפוך הוא. (Maybe biden actually does realize it?)
When evil people think they are doing "their will" and in reality they are doing the Will of GD. That's gonna be a real stinker to them.
Hashem Has a way of doing things like that. Like right under evil people's noses: Classic example, Moshe rabenu growing up right in Pharoah's Palace.
Israel is not under the regular charter of nations like the UN. Israel is special belonging ONLY to Hashem.
Just My two cents.

But something Really New needs to be born on the 1st of Nissan or the 6th or 7th of Nissan at the end of either 266 days or 271 days of Pregnancy which started on Rosh Chodesh Av.

Some time ago I came to realize a certain "condition of support" for Israel. I noticed most spoke up for Israel as being the "only democracy in the Middle East". This was 'tested' during the Judicial Reform days. Some were saying it was 'anti-democracy'. This has led me to think the nations of the world will go against Israel when it is believed the State is no longer a democracy. Depending on the circumstances, it could likely include the religious right in the US. The proposed pier looks to me as a first step in that direction.

Yes, they may send "international peace keeping troops" to Gaza with real firepower. When they come against Yerushalayim to divide it, they will gather in the Valley of Yehoshafat according to Yoel 3 and 4 which might be the Jordan Valley. That is all in Phase 2 which I have spoken about either in this post or the previous post.

But I am sticking to my guns. Something big, new, and unrelated to the incompetence of the Security Cabinet should be born within 271 days of the last Rosh Chodesh Av in 5783, including the day of Conception itself of R.H. Av. Rosh Chodesh Nissan is day 266. The 6th of Nissan is day 271. 271 is the Gematriah of הריון (pregnancy). The Gemorrah in Niddah says that 271 days are the number of days of Pregnancy.

I came back into writing frequently because I believed that this was the Year of the pregnancy. If nothing but Churban continues to happen by Shabbat haGadol, I will probably stop writing again.

Three potential new ideas to be born by Shabbat HaGadol:

It is clear from R. Ari Goldwag's Moshiach podcast #17 that there is a new spiritual era that will be born at the end of Adar Sheini or on Rosh Chodesh Nissan or by the 6th of Nissan (271 days from Rosh Choesh Av 5783). We might assume that it would be something regarding Mashiach ben Ephraim since Adar Sheini is his month, but the new era is that of Mashiach ben David. On the other hand, the Conception was on Rosh Chodesh Av which is Yehudah's month.

May I briefly suggest 3 possibilities:

1. Ww3 in the Southern Red Sea. Shipping between India and Europe cannot be continually clogged without massive economic dislocation where the cost of shipping is now 150% higher than it was before the Houthis in Yemen started attacking Western ships.

2. The rise of Mashiach ben Ephraim (Yehonatan Pollard) as Defense Minister in Adar Sheini or early in Nissan as a result of systematic failure of the Erev Rav Generals to win the War in the North. Because a systematic failure of the Erev Rav Generals and the Erev Rav DM, thousands of Jews would die during a transition which is Derekh HaTeva. If the transition takes place in Nissan, HaShem will find a way to do so miraculously without the death of thousands.

3. The Arrival of Eliyahu HaNavi in early Nissan to make way for teshuvah before the great and terrible Day of the L-rd next Hoshana Rabbah and to prepare the way for Mashiach ben David.

Between 15 and 18 years ago, I verily heard that just before Eliyahu's arrival in Nissan of the year of Redemption, Iran (Persia) would send missiles against Israel. HaShem would miraculously prevent missiles from hitting population centers, by suspending them in the Air over cities. He would tell the unrepentant haters of G-d to repent, or else these missiles would continue toward their targets. Most of these recalcitrant leftists would then repent, allowing the Geulah to proceed.

I am only giving this over because I verily heard this description of these matters given over between 15 and 18 yrs ago. If someone can help me find the source for this, please do so. I would appreciate it.
