Questions and Anwers on Yom Kippur

By Rabbi Eliezer Melamed

Settling the Land is the Way to Reveal G-d’s Kingdom

But there are also halakhic questions that need answers before the Fast

.

Accepting God’s Kingdom through Settling the Land

At the beginning of the year, we should return and connect to the most important and primary foundations in our lives – and paramount to all is remembering who are we, what our life is all about, where we came from, where we are going, and the great mission that has been assigned to us. Therefore, first and foremost, we once again accept upon ourselves God’s kingdom.

Correspondingly, in last week’s column, we mentioned the outwardly discernible mitzvoth – for men, wearing ‘tzitziot’ (tassels) on the outside of one’s clothing, and a sizeable ‘kippa’; for women, modest clothing according to halakhah; and for all – responding ‘amen’ out loud, and respect for the ‘beit knesset’ (synagogue).

Some people resented my pointing out mitzvoth that not everyone from the National-Religious public always excels in. Nevertheless, it is precisely the mitzvoth which require strengthening that need to be mentioned.

On the other hand, it is important to add that in general, the mitzvah that best expresses the acceptance of God’s Kingdom in the eyes of the entire world is the mitzvah of ‘yishuv Ha’Aretz’ (settling the Land), which our Sages said is equal to all the other mitzvoth (Sifri, Parshat ‘Re’eh’). And especially today, when many countries in the world accuse us, claiming: ‘You are bandits! You conquered the Arab’s land’, and demand we retreat from the Inheritance of our forefathers, but nonetheless, we stand in opposition to all of them, continuing to settle the Land of Israel, as the Word of God in the Torah and the Prophets.

The Need to Fight for the Land – Revealing God’s Kingdom

In fact, it can and should be argued that, historically speaking, our Rights to the Land of Israel are Superior, because the Arabs themselves conquered the Land some two thousand years after us, turned it into wilderness, and never had an independent state here. In any event, the most basic reply is that of Rabbi Yitzchak, as brought down by Rashi in his first commentary on the Torah:

“The entire world belongs to God. He created it and He has distributed portions of it in accordance with His Plan. Just as He exercised His Authority in granting the Land of Canaan to the seven nations, He exercised that Authority in granting the Holy Land to us” as it is written: “God revealed to His people His glorious creation so that they could receive their rightful Inheritance from the nations of the earth” (Psalms 111:6).

It is similarly explained in the Midrash:

“God said to Israel: I could have created a new land for you, but in order to show you My Strength, I slay your enemies before you, and give you their Land, to fulfill what is written: “God revealed to His People His glorious Creation so that they could receive their rightful Inheritance from the nations of the earth” (Bamidbar Rabba 23:12).

For only in this way will the world be redeemed from all its physical and moral woes. Despite all human attempts to prevent wars and quarrels, hatred and competition, vices still prevail, and humanity fails to be saved from the iniquities of human nature. Only by clinging to the Will of God can the world elevate itself from its small-mindedness, and be redeemed from its misery.

Therefore, everyone must be aware that we have returned to the Land of Israel as God commanded, to reveal goodness and truth to the world. And, lo and behold, after all attempts, it turns out that this is the most convincing reply for the majority of people in the world.

Expansion of the Settlements

Following my article two weeks ago, in which I wrote that our main challenge is to expand Jewish settlement extensively in Judea and Samaria, I received a response from my friend, Rabbi Ya’ir Hiller, expressing his concern about the insufficient rate of growth in the settlements.

Seeing as this is a timely encouragement for the Ten Days of Repentance as well, I present part of his letter: “…The practical objective is to do what you have done on Har Bracha: to build densely populated, high-story buildings, enabling many young couples who cannot find relief from the insane housing prices everywhere, to rent or purchase.

“In my opinion, you should join forces with other public representatives, directly contacting additional local councils, and convince them and their residents about the necessity of the issue for all of Am Yisrael, not to be satisfied building expensive villas for the wealthy alone, but allocate land in every community for cheaper construction, even if this brings to the gates of their communities young families and not affluent ones. This move will solidify the settlements, especially in the outlying areas, and also bring relief to the housing shortage in the greater Tel-Aviv region.”

Indeed, this entreaty is an appropriate one, and hence, I have decided to publish it here. Thank God, for a number of years, residents of Har Bracha have been inspiring other communities to build densely, or at the very least, to build more modestly then in the past. In recent months, some residents have even started a construction company for this purpose, and we hope to hear good news from them soon.

Fast of Yom Kippur

Making Marriages on Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) is an able day for prayers and thoughts about making a good match, for oneself, or for his children. On the face of it, a person might think: “Is it fitting on this holy and awesome Day to contemplate such seemingly low matters between husband and wife?” But this is what our Sages said in the Mishna:

Rabban Shimon ben Gamliel said, There were no holidays for Israel as the fifteenth of Av and as Yom Kippur, for on them the daughters of Jerusalem go forth in borrowed white garments, so as not to embarrass whoever does not have… And the daughters of Jerusalem go forth and dance in the vineyard. And what would they say? “Young man, lift up your eyes and see, what you choose for yourself. Do not set your eyes on beauty, set your eyes on the family: ‘Grace is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman that fears the L-rd, she shall be praised’ (Prov. 31:30), and it says, ‘Give her the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates’ (Mishna Ta’anit 4:8).

This was the custom when the Temple was still standing and the ‘Shechinah’ (Divine Presence) rested on Israel and the High Priest entered the Holy of Holies on Yom Kippur; at that time, Israel could engage in matchmaking in holiness. But today when the Holy Temple is destroyed, we are required to significantly increase our prayers, and the ‘Shechinah’ is not revealed within us; consequently, we can not actually engage in matchmaking on Yom Kippur. Nevertheless, on this Holy Day, it is fitting to pray and contemplate on this important issue.

In particular, a person who has a lot of doubts regarding marriage, and is influenced by external considerations connected to his bad character traits which he has not yet properly corrected, can find the path to discover his match, owing to the holiness of the day.

Restoring ‘Shalom Bayit’

While Yom Kippur is effective in finding a match, it can also be helpful in restoring peace and love between married couples. For sometimes, as a result of failing to remember the Divine destiny of the marriage covenant, difficulties develop between husband and wife causing division. But by means of the Great Repentance of Yom Kippur, they can restore the love and joy between them.

As Rabbi Akiva said: “When husband and wife are worthy, the Shechinah abides with them; when they are not worthy fire consumes them” (Sotah 17a). Rashi explains that God placed His name between them – the Hebrew letter ‘yud’ in the word ‘ish’ (man), and ‘heh’ in the word ‘isha’ (woman) [and without God’s Name, the remaining letters ‘aleph’ and ‘shin’ spell the word ‘esh’, or fire].

Many people make the mistake, thinking that by connecting to learning Torah and performing mitzvoth, love between the couple will be impaired. The truth is the exact opposite – the more they are genuinely connected to religious matters, later on, they will be able to increase happiness and joy between them.

On Yom Kippur it is forbidden for a husband to touch his wife even with his finger (Shulchan Aruch, 615:1), yet, as a result of the holiness and meaningful repentance, they will be able to increasingly deepen their relationship.

Wearing Insoles on Yom Kippur

Q: As all are aware, it is forbidden to wear leather shoes or sandals on Yom Kippur. My question is, what is the halakhah for someone who needs to wear insoles in his shoes, and without them, his feet hurt him extremely, but the insoles are covered with leather?

A: Some halakhic authorities are lenient in this matter, permitting a person who suffers greatly without his insoles, which happen to be covered with leather, to place them in his cloth or rubber shoes, since they are not considered part of the shoe, and it is similar to a person standing on a cushion made out of leather, which is permitted (Rema, 614:2). Additionally, since he suffers greatly, he is in the same category as a person who has to walk in mud, who is permitted to wear shoes (Chelek Yaacov, Vol. 2: 83). One who desires may rely on this opinion.

When purchasing insoles, a person who wishes to ‘l’hader’ (enhance the mitzvah), should ask for insoles without leather, and thus be able to use them on Yom Kippur without concern.

Does a Migraine Sufferer Have to Fast?

Q: Is a person who has migraines, and has suffered several times from an onset of acute headaches as a result of fasting, obligated to fast on Yom Kippur and other fast days?

A: The general rule is that a sick person is exempt from the minor fasts, and even Tisha B’Av. Not only that – even one who as a result of the Fast is liable to become sick and fall ill, is exempt from fasting. Therefore, someone who suffers from migraines, even if at the beginning of the Fast he does not suffer, but knows that as a result of the fast a migraine headache is liable to be triggered, is exempt from the minor fasts and Tisha B’Av.

However, regarding the Fast of Yom Kippur, where even a person who is ill must also fast, one suffering from migraine headaches is obligated to Fast as well – even if it is a strong migraine, ‘kol v’chomer’ (all the more so) in a situation where he is not yet suffering, but rather, the Fast is likely to cause the onset of a migraine headache. And even eating a little at a time, less than a ‘shiur’ [one who eats on Yom Kippur the measurement of a large date is guilty] is forbidden for an ill person, since even eating a little on Yom Kippur is a Torah prohibition.

Additionally, it is worthy to note that in most cases, there are medications, in the form of a suppository or spray, which prevent the onset of migraines until after the Fast.

However, there are rare instances where migraines can cause a stroke, in which case there is a ‘chashash sakanat nefashot’ (a possible life-threatening situation), and in any event, such an ill person is exempt from fasting on Yom Kippur.  This is under three conditions:

  1. He has been diagnosed that fasting causes his migraines.
  2. The migraine appears after an aura (a perceptual disturbance experienced by some migraine sufferers before a migraine headache), and the aura lasts for over an hour.
  3. No medications (such as suppositories or sprays) can prevent the onset of the migraine. (This halakhah was written with the assistance of Dr. Rafi Kayam, and in accordance to the opinion of Dr. Rachel Herring, an expert in this field).

It should be added that, when it comes to the type of migraine where ‘sakanat nefashot’ is involved, seeing as the ill person does not need to eat a lot at one time in order to prevent the onset, he must eat a little at a time – less than a ‘shiur’ – for as long as he eats less than a ‘shiur’, he is not considered as having broken the Fast completely.

Using Deodorant

Q: Is it permissible to use deodorant on Yom Kippur to remove bad odor?

A: One of the five unique prohibitions on Yom Kippur is the prohibition of ‘sicha’ (anointing oneself with perfumes or lotions), which includes the prohibition of anointing even a tiny part of the body with oil or cream, and also the prohibition of using cosmetic products such as powders and oils to beautify one’s skin, or for a pleasant scent (Shulchan Aruch, 614:1).

Anointing in order to remove a bad odor is also prohibited, and in this manner, the prohibition of ‘sicha’ is different from the prohibition of ‘richitza’ (bathing), because regarding ‘richitza’, if one’s clear intention is to remove dirt – washing is permitted. Nevertheless, regarding ‘sicha’, since it is mainly intended for pleasure, even when one’s intention is to remove a bad odor, it is prohibited.

However, if after changing a baby’s diaper a bad smell remains on one’s hands, it is permitted to wash one’s hands with liquid soap, because liquid soap is not considered a cream or oil.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Makes The Case Of Israel Against Iran


Having been insolently rebuffed again by Obama last week,
the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu took to the airwaves
in the United States on Sunday to warn the endangered American people
that Iran is only six or seven months from having “90 percent”
of what it needs to make an atomic bomb.

Bibi appeared on two Sunday political shows

.

Benjamin Netanyahu

Netanyahu received criticism — from political enemies, of course — for similar remarks last week, because they said they were seen as an effort to put pressure on Muslim Israel-hater Obama to act more forcefully against Iran.  So, less than two months before Election Day, he turned to the weekly platform for American politics — the Sunday morning political talk shows — to make his legitimate case on behalf of the survival of the nation of Israel more urgently and specifically than ever to a wider American audience, whose government and media are constantly deceiving them.

He repeated his valid warning that the only way to stop Iran was for the United States to draw a distinct “red line” on that country’s nuclear activity and declare that crossing it would trigger military intervention.  He also offered his most explicit description to date of the level of nuclear development that he would regard as particularly dangerous: one bomb’s worth of medium-enriched uranium, a level that would take Iran close to a bomb but would still require additional work to make a weapon.

He implied that Iran would cross that line soon. “You know, they’re in the last 20 yards, and you can’t let them cross that goal line,” Bibi said on the NBC News program “Meet the Press,” displaying his familiarity with American football, another Sunday ritual there.

“You can’t let them score a touchdown, because that would have unbelievable consequences, grievous consequences for the peace and security of us all, of the world really.”

Many Americans are so deeply bamboozled by their prostituted corporative media and misgovernment that they think if Iran ever gets nukes only Israel would be their target!

Iran, which shamelessly denies that it is pursuing nuclear weapons, warned on Sunday that it would retaliate across the region if it came under attack — even to those that would have nothing to do with the attack! — thus giving a clear idea of how things would be when they get nuclear.

The warnings and threats came after a tumultuous and violent week in the Middle East, which left the pro-Islamic Obama administration reeling at times and straining to offer a semblance of sustainable relations with two countries that have long been viewed as pillars of stability in the region, Israel and Egypt.

On several Sunday shows, Susan E. Rice, the Obama’s regime representative at the United Nations, sought to defend the US misadministration’s handling of each relationship. She cynically said that the United States “cooperates closely” with Israel, BUT believed there was time for more diplomacy and sanctions in the case of Iran.  Of course, in the case of Islamist-controlled Egypt, she argued against cutting the annual $1.5 billion in American assistance an action that some have urged in the wake of the storming of the American Embassy in Cairo last week.  This assistance $1.5 billion is foremost military and obviously targeted against Israel.

“We think that despite this very bumpy path we’re on, and the very disturbing images we’ve seen, it’s in the United States’ fundamental interest that people have the ability to choose their own governments — that these governments be democratic and free,” Ms. Rice said on “Meet the Press.” “That’s in our long-term best interest. We need to reinforce that with our assistance.”  Of course, she ignored the fact that in free elections the Muslim Arabs always elect the most terrorist prone governments they can find, as is the case of Hamas in Gaza and recently in Egypt.

Democracy is execrated by the immense majority of Muslims; they prefer Shariah for dealing with the interior matters and terrorism for foreign affairs.  The American and European politicians know this exactly well.  The people of America and Europe are too dumb down to realize that not everyone in the world sees life and government like they do.  They idiotically think that what is good and comfortable for them has got to be good and comfortable for everybody else.  Such is the stupid arrogance that always ends up by destroying all empires in history.

The protests, which were inspired by an American-made funny video denigrating the false “prophet” Muhammad, spread from Cairo to Libya, where the American ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans were killed after having been mass sodomized — something much repeated all along history and shushed by the media and the school system, but very telling of the true nature of Islam.  (It comes to mind Khadafi and Lawrence of Arabia, just to mention two cases).

Since the anti-Islam video, the protests have spread to nearly two dozen countries and have forced the US State Department to evacuate all but emergency staff members from its embassies in Sudan and Tripoli, Libya, on Saturday, though the violence of the demonstrations appeared to be subsiding.  Although the US State Department suspiciously let the tragedy in Lybia take place, since they knew three days in advance, and from several sources that the preprogrammed attack was to happen.

Netanyahu, who also appeared on the CNN program “State of the Union” on Sunday, linked the violence with Iran’s nuclear ambitions, arguing that Iran’s leaders are driven by the same fanaticism that enrages the savage protesters.

Israel was probably the third country, after America and the late USSR to have its own nuclear weapons arsenal — that is, since the lows 1960’s, even before the glorious Six Day War of 1967 — but the Israeli governments since then have never publicly acknowledged it, much less have they threatened to use them.  Despite that, MAD is a fact because “Never Again” will we Jews go down to be easily exterminated, like we were in the Nazi Holocaust; so, better not corner us!  For the sake of world peace and world survival:  Don’t corner us.  That is why everyone in the world should heed to what Bibi is asking.  Why allowing a lethal situation to arrive — unnecesarily! — to a point that should never arrive?  Netanyahu said on CNN:

“All the things that you see now in these mobs storming the American Embassies is what you will see with a regime that would have atomic bombs.  You can’t have such people have atomic bombs!”

It’s that so difficult to understand?

In Iran, the highest Commander of the powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari, took the unusual step of holding a news conference on Sunday to warn that “nothing will remain” in Israel if it or any other nation launches attacks against his country.

So, even if we do not do anything against them, we shall be utterly incinerated!  Now, who would stand for such a threat?  For America it was enough the hearsay that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction to sent the Marines and take him down, killing in the process close to one million civilians!

Netanyahu added that Iran and its allies — meaning Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza — would retaliate at Israel’s borders, as would Iran itself in Israel and beyond, targeting American military bases in the Persian Gulf and shutting down the Strait of Hormuz.  Iran has often threatened to counter any attack, but the general’s threats were unusually specific and signaled Iran’s intent to turn any possible attack into a regional conflict of major proportions.  General Jafari said, according to an account by The Associated Press:

“Our response to Israel is clear: I think nothing will remain of Israel.  Given Israel’s small land area and its vulnerability to a massive volume of Iran’s missiles, I don’t think any spot in Israel will remain safe.”

Observe that when Israel talks about attacking Iran it is always made very clear that the attack is solely intended against the Iranian military and the nuclear sites.  These barbaric Muslims always talk very openly that their intent is to destroy the civilian population of Israel.  This is why we will have to eventually nuke them all, sooner or later, because they will attempt to exterminate us all and we are surely not going to allow such a Islamic wet dream.  This is precisely what Netanyahu is trying to prevent by destroying that they have the capability of putting us in front of such inevitable decision if the survival of our nation is at stake.  Oy, but Obama evidently has the same wet dream as Iran; and that is the classical wrench in the gears that we are witnessing.

Iranian General Jafari also confirmed, in what appeared to be the clearest terms so far, that some high-level advisers from his elite unit were working in Syria and Lebanon, underscoring how deeply intertwined the many conflicts in the region have become, and how easily the ticking bomb could explode.

The United States and Israel have cooperated closely over most security matters for years, including Iran’s nuclear efforts, but Mr. Netanyahu’s remarks over the last week underscored his desire that the administration act more forcefully with Iran.  The security situation would be intolerable with the cooperation of the secret services of Israel; but the befuddled American people ignore that and think that it is because of the intelligent action of their highly monetized and corrupted secret agents.  Americans also tend to forget things like when the First Gulf War the American government asked us not to retaliate if Saddam would attack us with his Scud missiles because they needed the help of the Arabs to fight Saddam.  Well, 39 Scuds fell and we contained ourselves for friendship toward America, but now America  is turning her back on Israel.  O well, HaShem will pass a very heavy Bill, and Iran might be one of the collectors.

Jeremiah 51.49
Babylon must fall because of the slain of Israel, just as the slain of all the earth have fallen because of Babylon.

Netanyahu also highlighted his evident personal estrangement with Obama.  The two spoke by telephone on Tuesday after Netanyahu’s first remarks.

While the United States and the International Atomic Energy Agency have cited Iranian efforts to accelerate work on enriching uranium, American officials lied saying “there is no hard and clear evidence that Iran has resumed work on the military components necessary to build a Bomb!”

Reality is that Iran possesses enough low-enriched uranium to make five or six nuclear weapons, but that process would be lengthy.  Netanyahu is particularly concerned about a new line of production of uranium largely being conducted in a deep underground site apparently invulnerable to an Israeli attack.  Iran is expected to have roughly a bomb’s worth of that medium-enriched uranium within half a year.

Despite Netanyahu’s assurance that Iran is close to developing a nuclear weapons capacity, American officials have said “there would still be time for the United States and others to detect and, if necessary, respond to an effort to move from merely enriching to constructing a bomb.”  But the evident problem is that there is no worse blind person than the one that doesn’t want to see anything.

The differences between Netanyahu and Obama were fully on display on Sunday when Ms. Rice shamelessly argued that “international diplomacy and economic sanctions were having an impact on Iran and should be given time to work.”  But that “impact” must be the most profound secret in the world because it’s nowhere to be found.  The fact is that despite of all the “diplomacy” and “sanctions” Iran is closer than ever to the Bomb and the world to World War Three.

She said, referring to the American assessment of where Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions stand:

“They are not there yet.  They are not there yet, and our assessment is — and we share this regularly with our Israeli counterparts in the intelligence and defense community — that there is time and space for the pressure we are mounting, which is unprecedented in terms of sanctions, to still yield results.”

Mr. Netanyahu insisted that he was not trying to influence American politics. He expressed respect for Obama’s evident false vow not to allow Iran to acquire an atomic bomb.

Asked specifically if he felt that Obama’s Republican opponent, Mitt Romney, would take a firmer stand toward Iran, Mr. Netanyahu demurred.  Mr. Romney and Mr. Netanyahu, who are friends, worked together briefly in the 1970s at Boston Consulting Group.  He said:

“What’s guiding my statements is not the American political calendar but the Iranian nuclear calendar.”

Based upon the evident fact that Obama is a constant liar, and a shady man committed the Muslim cause of world conquest or Caliphate, and also based upon what our Holy Prophets predicted concerning these current affairs, my prediction is that:

  1. Bibi’s best efforts to halt Iran from producing Nukes shall flatly fail.  The American government is bent to use Islam as a lance tower pushing humanity toward the New World Order.  On the other hand, sadly, the American public only care about their own finances and how to have more fun; they are too demoralized to care and too cowardly to do what is right and needed.  Obama and his evil handlers know this very well and because of it they act increasingly brazenly.
  2. B. Hussein Obama shall be reelected, and not only shall not prevent any Muslim country from doing as they wish, but he will unleash a fierce persecution against the American Jews whose majority, up to this moment, are so enraptured by him.  Toward such a purpose he may produce a false flag operation that he would blame them for,
  3. In the next few weeks, or not long after Obama’s reelection, Israel shall find herself alone in a fierce battle for survival that shall cause us to destroy all our neighboring countries because we shall be badly hurt and in despair for national survival,
  4. HaShem will pass a drastic Judgment upon America for all the Jewish blood spilled on account of her betrayal.  So then, America will be attacked and utterly destroyed by Iran, Russia, China, Korea and others minor, but no less evil players players, like Cuba and Venezuela, as well as by enormous natural cataclysms.

Of course, I’m no Prophet, so I could be wrong.  Oy va voy!  How much I wish I was wrong!

In Jerusalem It Is Proclaimed That Israel’s Next Leader Is Moshiach!

The Process of Redemption Is In Full Swing

And There is a Wind of Anticipation of Moshiach

An Excitement is felt by the Jews of Israel

Jewish Temple
The Future Temple of HaShem in Jerusalem

The Current Situation Of Israel
Requires Moshiach Soon

.

Lifnei ha’kol, Shannah Tovah v’Chag Sameach l’kulam!
Translation:  Before everthing, Happy New (Jewish) Year and Joyful Festivities to all!

It is Erev Rosh Hashanah and the Jewish year 5773 (2012 to 2013) is just about to begin in a few hours, and that brings to mind that we are in the midst of a Shmitah (Sabbatical Week of Years) while portentous Events and Moments appear to now be upon us.

The Islam-bent American White House is quickly disengaging itself from the Netanyahu government as the 44th President of the United States tries to recoup momentum to keep the seat of the Oval Office.  At the same time, Obama’s top military official, Gen. Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on August 30, after visiting with Netanyahu, stated; “I don’t want to be complicit if they (Israel) choose to do it” – meaning attacking Iran.  With the deciding vote in November for who will be the 45th President may virtually hang on the swing vote of the Jewish American voters, the die is being cast for both America and Israel.  As DebkaFiles wrote:

“President Barack Obama’s refusal Tuesday Sept. 11 to see Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu because “the president’s schedule will not permit that,” left Jerusalem thunderstruck – and Washington too.  At one stroke, round after round of delicate negotiations on Iran between the White House, Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem, the US National Security Council, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta collapsed.  They had aimed at an agreement on a starting point for the meeting that had been fixed between the two leaders for Sept. 28 in New York to bridge their differences over an attack on Iran’s nuclear program.”

As the diplomatic discussions continued to unfold for the last possible meeting between Netanyahu and Obama was slated for September 28, on Tishri 14 after Iran President Ahmadinejad is scheduled to speak at the United Nations on the Yom Kippur, the Great Day of Judgment, the stage is being set for the G-d of Israel to step into the world diplomatic ring and begin the final acts of judgment upon Planet Earth.  Then the clincher was revealed by DebkaFiles:

“Although the Israeli presidency is a largely titular function, Peres has elected himself senior spokesman for the opponents of an Israeli military operation against Iran.  While their advisers sought to establish agreed lines between them ahead of Netanyahu’s meeting with Obama, debkafile reports that the confrontation between the two Israeli politicians ended inconclusively, because Peres kept on demanding that the prime minister bend to the will of the White House.”

The Vatican’s P2 Masonic Lodge representative to the State of Israel sitting as the President of Israel has now joined the diplomatic discussion table, giving the final vote of the Vatican to the discussions on whether to strike Iran or not.  Then Barry Chamish jumped into the fray in April, 2012, with this article titled; “Out of Israel, the next Exodus”, we read these words:

“Not two months ago, the head of military intelligence for the IDF, Aviv Kochavi felt he had to tell the public a painful truth.  Israel’s enemies, presumably not Egypt or Jordan, had 200,000 missiles aimed at everywhere in the country. In the next war, unlike the disastrous war of ’06 which saw literally, the entire north driven south by the missiles, this time there would be nowhere to run.

[ Obviously, faithless Chamish forgets that HaShem IS the best Refuge there is.  Actually, for Israel, He is the only proven Defense and worthy Hope; not even the IDF is to be trusted completely for our defense. ]

So scared is this settler-less staff, that less than a month before they let Hamas rain over 300 rockets in 4 days from Rishon Letzion east to Be’er Sheva. The army, overwhelmed with fear that any retaliation might spark a full scale war it would lose, sat on its hands comatose.

There is a threat that Israel has let its enemies know that, so far, has kept the next war in check. In Lebanon, Syria, Gaza and Iran, they have decided not to order the missile war ignited because Israel has threatened a kamikaze nuclear ending. Any rational person knows that Damascus cannot be destroyed by an Israeli nuke. It would be the same as nuking yourself.

Located just 10 miles from the Golan Heights, if you destroy Damascus, no matter which way the wind may be blowing, the Golan and the upper Galilee would be irradiated within minutes. The same goes for Sidon, Tyre, and Gaza.  If you start the next war, we will lose, but you’re going down with us.  We will nuke you to oblivion, so don’t do anything stupid.”

So, Israel is at one of those critical existential moments.  The choice is to go alone — even if still doing it in the company of other countries, which means to be without the protecting Hand of the G-d of Israel — or to “call upon the Name of Hashem” as the Lord of the Legions, the invincible Leader of Forces of Heaven.  The terrible part is that many Israelis and Jews in Galut do not really trust Him when He says, “Call upon Me and I will answer.”

This is the scenario we currently have — at least the one we can see.

Enters Moshiach.

The Initial Shofar Is Being Blown

.

In a series of newspapers, advertisements and billboards, the “Soon Coming of Moshiach” is being announced all over the Land of Israel. This event alone is palpable, not whether it will happen now, but that the Jewish soul is being awakened by the Almighty One of Israel and the Israeli people are responding to the facts that the Days of the Messiah (Mashiach) have now arrived.

The following half-page advertisement appeared in the Jerusalem Post on Sunday and Monday, 9, 10 September, 2012.

The Messiah is Here Ad

In the webpage of the group that put the advertisement it tells it in an expanded way:

The Next Leader of Israel is Moshiach!

The world will soon go through catastrophic disasters. Only Moshiach will save Israel in the coming up Gog and Magog war!  The group says that Moshiach is in Israel, in Tel Aviv.

The current government in Israel is the last government! The Next leader of Israel is: the Moshiach! Only Moshiach will save Israel in the coming up Gog and Magog war!

The world will soon go through catastrophic disasters, which have never seen before: severe earthquakes and mega tsunamis. Towns and Cities in Europe and U.S.A will sink under the ocean water! The world’s financial and economic system will fail and collapse; G-d will smash the silver and gold idols!

G-d will smash the idols of silver and gold

.

Watch the video below.

  • Israel will go through a severe earthquake and fatal missiles attacks, including chemical, biological and atomic weapons after which; no building will remain intact!  Those who will remain after Gog and Magog events will live in tents!  Just as was in the First Redemption, those who left Egypt with Moses lived in tents in the Sinai desert.  Those who chose to stick as slaves to their houses and properties in Egypt were exterminated.  Vanished!
  • Anti-Semitism will increase all around the world and will develop into serious violence, worse than the horrible events which the Jewish communities have suffered from, before and during World War Two!!

Jews who will choose to remain in the Diaspora, worshiping the modern Golden Calf will be lost!  Just like the eighty percent of the Jews in Egypt who preferred to stick to their properties there, and remain slaves to Pharaoh.  Those eighty percent lost their lives!  The Israeli people will pay severely, on any Israeli government waiver of Homeland Property, handed to the enemy!

The Israeli people will pay severely even for the act of talking about handing over Israeli territories to the enemy, or declaring about “two states for two peoples”!

The Land of Israel was given to Abraham by G-d as an Eternal Gift: only to the people of Israel!

Orthodox Jewish Patriots of Israel

.

Anyone who dares to trade with the Holy Land of Israel will not exist in the near Redemption!

Nowadays, disasters and diseases are increased also among the religious communities, including the Orthodox Haredim!  They do not ask for Moshiach as the Leader by advertising and loudly shouting to G-d asking for Moshiach!  They stand aside while blasphemy is occurring when the Israeli government continues to hand over Israeli Holy Territories to the enemy.

What should everyone do in order to survive in Gog and Magog War?

What should you do in order to see the holy 3rd Temple descending from Heaven to its location in Jerusalem?

What should you do in order to survive and watch the astonishing event of the resurrection!?

What should you do in order to live eternal life in the redemption era when all nations will speak the Hebrew language, and when the people of Israel will be the light for all the nations of the world!

You should cry out loudly every day to God (in Hebrew) asking for Moshiach:

! ה’ מלך העולם

!! אנא שלח:משיח בן דוד מיד

“Adonai Melech Haolam!
Ana shlach Moshiach Ben David miyad!!”

L-ord, King of the World!
Please, send us Moshiach Ben David immediately!

Better use the Shofar in between the shouting.

Here are examples of shouting in Hebrew:

Resources in the Bible, the Gmara, Rambam (Maimonides) etc/ for the command to shout loudly to G-d in cases of troubles:

In Hebrew – “What to do in order to be saved

Jerusalem Ad Messiah is Here

  • You should advertise Moshiach in the media: newspapers, internet, radio, billboards, flags, TV, as well as with shirts with Moshiach title, signposts, Moshiach advertisement on the car and in front of the house, on the doors etc.

Follow G-d’s Commandments according to Moses as revealed in the Bible.  Participate in the struggle for the possession of Israel’s whole Homeland Property!

Any Jew who will not immediately return to Israel will not survive in the war of Redemption because G-d will soon repay the Gentiles for their bad deeds toward the Jews all along the history.  Any Jew who will stay abroad will not be protected!  He will be lost together with the Gentiles around him!

Take care of your wives as queens!  Take care of homeless animals!

To sum it up:  The Moshiach will soon be revealed in any case — with or without “your help”!  Following the dramatic events that will soon occur in the world, there will not be even one person who will not shout for G-d’s Help!   Why shout to G-d in hospitals, or after an earthquake, or after missiles attacks, when already it’s too late?!  Why not to spend money for advertising Moshiach, rather than spending money on mourning advertising?

Moshiach does not need you.  You are the one who needs Moshiach and G-d’s Help — most of all in the Gog and Magog period — in the great and horrifying Judgment Day of G-d which is ahead!

The Final Redemption Is Ahead

The Final Redemption Is Ahead

.

If you’re reading this, then you are connected to the internet and there is no way that you can not have heard about the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.  Supposedly, this was the result of “spontaneous” riots which broke out in response to an anti-Islam film which was attributed to an “Israeli Jew living in California.”  In Cairo, also, riots broke out near the embassy and the US flag was burned and replaced with an Islamic one.

Within twenty-four hours, however, new reports have emerged that a group of Egyptian Christians were responsible for the film and serious questions have been raised about how “spontaneous” the reaction really was.

Today, the situation is very fluid.  The US State Dept has issued a travel advisory for American citizens:

…Embassies in Armenia, Burundi, Egypt, Kuwait, Sudan, Tunisia and Zambia all issued warnings on Wednesday that don’t report any specific threat but note that demonstrations can become violent and advise Americans in those countries to be particularly vigilant….

There are reports that rioting is continuing in Egypt and has spread to Yemen, Bangladesh, Tunisia and Morocco.

In response to the murders in Libya, the US is sending in two warships carrying Tomahawk cruise missiles.

And lest we forget, there is still the situation with Syria and Iran which deteriorates by the day.

As if this were not enough, we’ve got a talking head at NBC asking a representative of the group who made the anti-Islam film who is really more dangerous to the world, the “Supreme Leader” in Tehran or “Bibi” Netanyahu?! He went on to say that the only way to get along with Netanyahu is to agree with everything he says.

The New Yorker took its cheap shot, too “High-handed,” “arrogant,” “dangerous” – these are just a few of the personality traits of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, if the editor of the New Yorker, David Remnick, is to be believed. In an op-ed piece on the magazine’s web site. Remnick laces into Netanyahu as a “dangerous neocon” whose aim is, “to embolden and elevate the reactionary forces in Israel, to eliminate the dwindling possibility of a just settlement with the Palestinians, and to isolate his country on the world diplomatic stage.”

The scary part is not that people say these things, it’s that they say them openly and unabashedly.  There is no shame in it and this bodes ill for Jews in chu”l particularly.

Results of a US False Flag Operation

We are living in generally scary times and it’s getting worse.  We’re more informed than ever, and yet we have no idea what can be believed.  Some illusory people say the relationship between the US and Israel may or may not be as tenuous as reported.  Some have hypothesized that the ‘bad blood’ between the Obama and the Israeli Prime Minister could all be a magnificent act meant to fool the leadership of Iran while they secretly plot its downfall together.

Still others more realistically think the Libya attack might be a False-Flag event intended to cover up the real reason for warships in the Mediterranean:  An invasion of Israel meant to cut her down to size and prevent her from putting the whole world at risk with her insistent demand that Iran be denied nuclear power.

[ At this point, we should have into account that “the US State Department – that notorious nest of poisonous vipers – was warned that the embassy would be attacked 48 hours ahead of time. But both Obama and Hillary Clinton decided to laid low, be quiet and do nothing.” until after the now obvious pre-arranged assault of the always brutal Muslim mob.  Although they now act very surprised and indignant, they consciously sacrificed their own embassador and three more peons for the sake of something which we shall see in the next few days or weeks.  Like evil Rham Emmanuel, a best friend of nefarious Obama, once said:  “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”  This was another obvious False Flag Operation of the American goverment, carried on 11 years to the date of the other False Flag Operation on 9/11 2001.  Coincidence?  Again!!!  For dishonest fools everyting that scares them is “just a coincidence.” Oh well…]

Only HaShem knows what’s really going on.  It’s up to us to have faith in Him that He does everything for our very best and He is the One ultimately in control.  The power of life and death are in His hands alone.

However, it’s worth noting that it is highly significant that this escalation started on 9/11, that ison the eleventh anniversary of the destruction of the Twin Towers.  The number 11 is itself highly significant.

The number eleven, which is how many spices there were in the Ketores, at first seems rather odd. However, Kabbalistically it is a number of tremendous importance for it alludes to one of the most prized possessions in all of history: Da’at Elohim (Godly-Knowledge).

It is well-known that there are only ten fixed Sefirot: Keser, Chochmah, Binah, Chesed, Gevurah, Tifferet, Netzach, Hod, Yesod, and Malchut (Crown, Wisdom, Understanding, Kindness, Strength, Harmony, Dominance, Glory, Foundation, and Kingship). They are, for all intents and purposes, the spiritual DNA for all of existence, and the filters through which the G-d of Light passes to make it all exist and happen.

Kabbalah explains that there is actually an 11th sefirah. However, because it is really the product of other sefirot and subject to Movement, meaning that it can come and go based upon the efforts of man, it is more like a pseudo-sefirah, though its centrality is not to be under-estimated. (In truth, Da’at is what the light of Keser becomes after being filtered through Chochmah and Binah, which is why it is not really counted independently, but that is already a discussion that goes above our heads.)

Brushing aside the details, Da’at means one thing and one thing only: Redemption. The more of this light that exists in the world, the more Redemption will become a real and fixed reality, which is why the prophets describe Yemot HaMoshiach as a time when the world will be filled with Da’at, just as Betzalel was to construct the Mishkan, a microcosm of the entire universe in perfection, as the Zohar said….

The golden calf represents the other extreme – the world without Da’at, a forerunner of modern Western Society. (Ow! The truth hurts.)

The Parah Adumah, the subject of this week’s special Maftir, of course is the tikun for the golden calf, and therefore an expression of this very concept. (See Rashi at the beginning of Parashat Chukat.)

Thus, there are some very famous elevens through history, and they are all associated with this concept of Da’at. For example, Yosef was the 11th son born to Ya’akov, the one through whom the Hand of G-d became clear and from whom Moshiach ben Yosef will descend to help us across the threshold into Moshiach’s Time.

However, perhaps the most famous 11 is the Gematria of the letters “Vav-Heh” from G-d’s Tetragrammaton Name, purposely left out at the end of Parashat Beshallach when G-d swears there will be war against Amalek until the end of history. The Name of HaShem that represents this reality is “Elohim.” Once Amalek is finally snuffed out in Moshiach’s Time, they will return and G-d’s Name will once again be one. However, until such time it is as if they remain hidden, like the hand of G-d itself in the affairs of man, allowing Gevurot and Amalek to do their thing. (Rabbi Pinchas Winston, Perceptions on Parshat Ki Tisa)

And just as that first 9/11 led to war on Hoshanah Rabbah 5762, the events which began on this 9/11 may finish that war on Hoshanah Rabbah 5773.

We will have to watch this play out over the days to come, but I have the feeling that events might converge and cascade until we could have a real shot at Gog uMagog on Hoshanah Rabbah 5773 just as predicted.  If so, then history may very well show in the end that the Redemption began right at the closing of the year 5772.

May each one of us be inscribed and sealed for life and health and a future.  May each one of us live and survive to greet Moshiach Tzidkeinu and merit to live in days of Moshiach and the rebuilt Beit HaMikdash in Peace, Love and Joy.

What Shall It Be: Doomsday, Or The Day Of Redemption?


.

What Everyone Needs To Know The Most
Regarding The End Of Days

.

By Ya’akov Peretz
Be’er Sheva, Israel

Psalm 50.15
And call upon Me in the Day of Distress.  I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.

Only a self-deceiving idiot can truly believe that we are living in regular, normal times that are just as any other moment in history with their regular ups and downs.  Without any doubt, it is absolutely necessary to have totally shut down all our HaShem-given receptors so as not to be constantly reminded that ‘something very Big is afoot‘.  We are incessantly bombarded with all kinds of news, and even personal experiences, that clearly indicate the imminent arrival in the near future of some extraordinary and significant Change of Course for humanity, and even Nature itself.  By the “near future” bit I mean that if it does not take place in the next few weeks or months, it shall happen within very few years.  Most people perceive and call this change of human course, Doomsday. We religious Jews see these as Signs as an indication that  Geulah (Redemption) is finally coming our way.

If we set apart what our Holy Prophets and Sages predicted and commented about the End of Days, we would also surely be expecting Doomsday, i.e., the End of the World — or, at least, the end of humanity upon the face of the Earth.  But since the Jewish Prophets were so extensive and sometimes clear in reference to these Last Days, there is no reason for helpless despair or defeated anticipation of Doom in what we see happening and coming.  Yes, it is true that there is Doom coming for some, or many, people — including among them Jews — but there is a sure Pathway of Escape.  And this world will not be destroyed; on the contrary, it shall surely be drastically changed for the immensely better!

All the dumbfounding fuss and atrocious pain we see in the news, and which we may even be enduring in our own lives, is because this world is pregnant.  It is pregnant because it was raped by Sin since its very beginning.  Notwithstanding, after all this tiresome pain that we all are enduring — and after the Great Last Collective Pain that is yet to fall upon our world, Gog uMagog — HaShem will turn our seeming final defeat into the most awesome and joyful Victory.  It is only then that the “baby” will be born.  And who is this “baby to be born”?  It is the peaceful Messianic Era under the Kingdom of Justice led by Moshiach ben David.  You see, the problem is that before any birth — no matter how beautiful and healthy the baby might be — there is inevitably a terrible period of great danger, fear and pain.

At any rate, every Jew — and also non-Jew — who will call upon the Name of HaShem will come out of the Last Ordeal of humanity miraculously untouched,  while awakening to the Light of the for-so-long-awaited Redemption, as it is written in,

Yoel 3.5

5  And it shall come to pass, that whoever will call upon the Shem (Name) of the L- rd shall be saved, because in Mount Tziyon, and in Yerushalayim, there shall be Deliverance as HaShem has said, and in the seridim (remnant, survivors) whom HaShem shall call.

But what does “calling upon the Name of HaShem” mean after all?

The Name of HaShem goes beyond His Most Holy Way to be Called.  In Judaism,  the name of any individual has a great importance,  because it is supposed to declare characteristics of that person.  It is because of this, for example, that we see in Torah that HaShem changed the name of Avram to Avraham, Sarai to Sarah, and later on the name of Ya’akov was change into Yisrael.  For instance, in reference to Avraham, Rashi explains that,

“G-d changed Avram’s name to Avraham, a contraction representing his new status as Av Hamon — Father of a Multitude — whereas the name Avram represented his former status as only Av Aram — Father of Aram — his native country.”

So, we see that once HaShem altered and expanded the status of Avram, He changed his name to reflect this new characteristic.  Therefore, the name of an individual should inform us about how he or she is.

Now, what Status or Characteristics adorn the King of Heaven, blessed be He?  Such most admirable Qualities, or truly amazing Attributes, are comprised in HaShem’s Holy Name.  That is why we call him regularly ‘HaShem’ meaning ‘The Name’ since in His Name are encapsulated all His Wonderful Characteristics or Traits.  That is why our tradition makes the Holy Tetragrammaton unutterable, due to our great Respect for His Holy and Sacred Characteristics.  Actually that is also why He is called by different Names throughout Tanakh, to reflect and call our attention to His different Characteristics and Status.

So, upon which of His many Names should we call for Help on the future Day of His Wrath and the consequential time of our greatest need?  We need to understand this:  That Day  shall be when the proverbial hell will break loose upon the whole world. It will be a Time such as humanity has never faced before, when an enormous danger of total and complete extinction will engulf the planet.  For details on this, see Ezekiel 38 and 39, among many other places in Tanakh.

I’m sorry for having to scare you with this now inevitable Reality of our near future —since there is an increasing reticence in the Jewish nation to make Tshuva (Repentance) in a great scale.  But please pay attention — and pay attention very well — because only a Miracle from HaShamayim (Heaven, i.e. Him!) shall be able to save anyone at all on that Day.  Such a Miracle will be needed because it will not only be that we shall see ourselves in the midst of an all-out nuclear war, but Nature itself shall “go bonkers” as part of the Judgment of HaShem upon this perennially sinful and consistently rebellious world.

So, allow me to continue scaring you just for a moment, and then you shall see that there is no reason to despair.  In case that you think that the initial activation of so many volcanoes, supervolcanoes (which are immensely worse) and tectonic faults currently throwing tantrums is just a haphazard issue … well, think again.

Yellowstone Supervolcano

HaShem is setting His natural Pieces in the necessary position to give this planet an unavoidable Checkmate.  But, take courage, we do not have to perish with it.  Just let us continue for a moment with the bad and ugly stuff.  For example, HaShem has several supervolcanoes in America ready for action — and only one would destroy the country for the most part — The San Andreas Fault and her many evil sisters are also ready to, at any given moment, give a lethal hit to all the Western Coast the US. Meanwhile, the even more dangerous Madrid Fault, located in the very center of the nation, is showing signs of instability.  Finally, in the Eastern Atlantic Ocean, in front of the Western coast of Africa, in the island of La Palma which belongs to the Canary Islands archipelago, is found possibly the worst natural threat in this world, the “Cumbre Vieja” volcano.

Cumbre Vieja Volcano

Cumbre Vieja Volcano Destructive Area

In 1948 — the same year in which Israel was reborn, and the End of Days Clock started ticking — a third of the island crumbled away and started rolling toward the abysmal depths of the surrounding ocean … then, it stopped and became a ticking mega-bomb.  When “Cumbre Vieja” finally has it’s inevitable “decent-sized” eruption, a chunk of the island of La Palma will plunge into the Atlantic Ocean, thus provoking a one-kilometer high, 600-800 km/h mega-tsunami — much greater than anything known in human history since the Flood.  This cataclysmic event shall completely devastate dozens of miles inland (destroying entire major cities) from Canada all the way down to Brazil.  Mind you, scientists say that this is not a matter of “if” but of “when,” and the “when” part: depends absolutely on HaShem.

But America is not alone in the department of serious danger.  The whole planet is facing the Wrath of the Almighty.  Survival is only contingent on His Decision, and His Decision depends, not only on our words and actions, but on our inner attitude toward Him and other humans NOW.  You see, this is the right moment when we can, out of humble obedience and respect for His Status and Characteristics, demonstrate that we really care about Him and His Name — the very Name upon which we could be saved in the Day of our worst terror and despairing need.  But if we do not pay much — or worse yet ‘any’ — attention to His Name now, would it be valid when things go really” south” to then call upon his Name for salvation?  No chance!  Selfishness and opportunism are not viewed well at all in the Heavenly Court, as it says in Job 22.29:

It is absolutely important to understand that at the moment of utmost danger and greatest need, it would be to our advantage to have a record previously established that we remember that only HaShem is the One Above Us All, and Everything, that he is the only Master of our Lives and the unique Decider of our deaths; that only He is the King of the World, our sole Creator, our exclusive Provider, as well as our only Supreme Judge, our exclusive Savior.  All that is part of His Wonderful Name to be called upon for salvation.  But not only that, He is absolutely Perfect, Just and Fair, Benevolent, but also a Severe Punisher of our sins, rebellions and of all those who disdain His Name and pretend to ignore His unparalleled Lofty Position in the universe.  But to those of humble heart, who recognize his Magnificence, to those, He is a sure Deliverer and Savior,as it says:

Iyob (Job) 22.21-23 & 29
21  Acquaint yourself with Him now, so that you may have Peace; because of that, Goodness shall come to you.  22  Receive, now, Instruction from His Mouth, and lay down His Words in your heart23  If you return to The Almighty you shall be restored.  If you shall put away iniquity far from your tents.  …  29  When they are cast down, you shall say, “Arise!”  And  He shall save the one with humility.

 But how could HaShem save anyone from and all nuclear conflagration, and erupting supervolcanoes, tectonic faults cracking up all over, and mega-tsunamies?  He can because part of the Meaning of His Name is Almighty and another part is Savior.  We all need Emunah (Faith) to believe that He is Willing and Able to save from the most horrendous situations — those people whom HE deems worthy.  Without such humble faith in His Royal Decisions we doom ourselves to destruction, defeat and pain, as it says:

Chabakuk 2.4
4  Hinei (Lo), he whose nashamah (soul) is puffed up is not upright with Him, but the tzaddik (righteous) shall live by his Emunah (Faith).

 OK, fine, but in what practical manner can He save those who call upon His Name in that Day and those who previously had humbled themselves to Him?

Well, he tells us how in,

 Isaiah 43.2-3

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.  When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, neither the flame shall kindle upon you.  3  Because I am the L-ord your G-d, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.

Enough said?  Water?  Fire?  No problem!  For Him, that is, because He is the Creator of all the elements in the Universe, because He is the Master of all the Laws of Nature which He established; He can overrule them. He can handle mega-earthquakes, mega-volcanoes, mega-tsunamies, and mega-everything easily.  He is the Almighty!  He is not like you or me; that is frail mortals, partly-material beings of very restricted capabilities.  He Who is much vaster than all the existing space and time in the Multiverse, Who created and transcends all the existing dimensions of matter, energy and spirit, if so He wants He can save you or me.  And so He will do IF we are NOW living as He wishes that we do, not as we imagine He wants.  What He wants?  He wants and demands:  Anavah (Humility, Modesty), Tshuvah (Repentance), Emunah (Trusting Faith), Ahavah (Love, for Him and others), Chesed (Charity) and Ma’asim Tovim (Good Deeds).

It sound too much and too difficult, but it is not if we humble ourselves in front of His Name.  The Name that we shall invoke to be saved one the Day that is rushing toward our encounter.

I truly wish that I had deeper knowledge and better capabilities to convey what is not only important, but absolutely vital for the sake of your life and well-being.  Please, do not discard this words of mine as worthless nonsense.  Look around, read the news and consider the possibility that what I have said might be true.  Do it for yourself and for those whom you love.

Psalm 55.17
17  As for me, I will call upon Elohim, and HaShem will save me.

And after that the Best begins.  But I’ll talk about that another day.  For the moment what is important is to determine what shall it be for you:  Doomsday? or The Day of Redemption?

Shalom, v’ Shannah Tovah!

Bible Codes Seem to Indicate the Reelection of Barack Hussein Obama


.

A Prediction Worth Considering

By Ya’akov Peretz
Be’er Sheva, Israel

Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson, and expert in the Torah Codes, has found an interesting Table that seems to point toward the reelection of that treasonous Islamic Mole Barack Hussein Obama.  Is Obama Urmilus?  Certainly he is Anti-Israel, and in his second term all the American Jews shall find, to their utmost horror that he truly is an anti-Semite.

.

.

In 1959 I was living in Cuba and I heard Castro say on TV that all the accusations that some people were circulating in reference to him being a Communist were “absolutely false;” and then he pronounced the famous but highly deceiving words that most Cubans wanted at that time to believe:  “This Revolution is not Red!  It is Green, green as our palm trees.”  The palm tree is the Cuban national tree and a symbol of Cuban nationalism.  The Cuban people of at that time took the same attitude that Americans have taken with Obama nowadays:  Why doubt his own word about himself, right?

Well, three years after his denial of being Communist, in April 1962, when Castro had already achieved his total military control over the island, he shamelessly confessed also on TV:  “I am – and have always being – a Communist!  And this Revolution is, and will be, Communist.”  Of course, by then it was too late. Cubans found a shred of hope in trying and leave the enslaved island. Most Americans will have no place to run to when Obama comes out “clean” in his second term as who he really is.

Torah Code on Obama

Sadly, the fall of America is at hand.

This IS the Future As Foretold by HaShem. Prepare for It WITH Him, or Deal with It on Your Own


Redemption Will Be Wonderful … But Not Easy

.

Third Jewish Temple in Jerusalem

.

There are no Prophets these days, but we surely can know the future. What our Holy Prophets predicted in the old days, and what our sages later on extracted from their divinely inspired Prophecies, added to that the instantaneous access that we have to detailed worldwide information, thanks to the Internet, and we have a very good idea of what is coming our way in the not so distant future.  So, I might not be a Prophet, but I am an educated speculator with a pretty decent record of accuracy in my predictions.  Notwithstanding, this post is not about my or others speculations, this post is strictly about what HaShem revealed by means of those ancient Prophets of ours; because of this we can rest assured that these Predictions are 100% accurate.

Having said that, I must remark that any Prophecy – all these! – could be easily avoided if a great part of humans, mainly Jews, would quit being such a bunch of spiritual retards and make Tshuvah. Its is the lack of Emunah and Ahavah in the Jewish soul that is creating all the commotions we see all around us these days.  Yes, we Jews are collectively guilty of the pathetic and dangerous state in which the entire world is found nowadays.  It is ignorant Jews, unloving Jews, assimilated Jews, materialistic Jews, unobservant Jews, heretical Jews, idolatrous Jews, skeptical Jews, atheist Jews, immoral Jews, perverted Jews, and rebellious Jews who are bringing upon Am Yisrael and the whole world all the current calamities and the coming worldwide cataclysm. We, Jews, are the Chosen People indeed; but we were not Chosen to be better than the rest of nations, or just to feel good about ourselves because of the honor bestowed upon ourselves when we were the lowliest of nations.  No, we were Chosen to bring the Light of HaShem to the world, to make His Light available to those very nations that, when we do not illuminate them with the Teachings and Mitzvot of Torah, and with our example of how to live those Divine Concepts, then they turn against us and try to extirpate us from the face of the Earth.

Let’s take for instance our experience in America.  No other country – not even Spain before the cruel and anti-Semitic Catholic Kings – has given us so much freedom and opportunities to thrive at any level.  And what did we do there?  Merely grow fatly rich and powerful.  We impacted its culture with some good art and sciences, but we destroyed it with Hollywood and Wall Street.  Is any of that, good or bad. the Light that HaShem wanted us to shed on a arrogant and forceful country that thinks that Light is what gold reflects?  We did not bring the Light of HaShem to America; what we did was to be overtaken by its Darkness.  We assimilated to the point of non-recognition, we intermarried to the point of impending absorption, we became hard and vain, and most grew farther and farther from HaShem and His Light.

Yes, many American Jews love Israel, but they execrate the idea of living here because it doesn’t give so many opportunities to grow financially and socially.  On the other hand, Israelis are brusque and nervous!  And why live in the desert city of Be’er Sheva (like me), when you can live in “sunny” Florida (as I did)?  Just this kind of cogitation tells a lot about the Darkness that has been infused into the Jewish soul in America.  I know that many people will cry “Crazy!” on account of what I’m going to now declare:  America is the country that has done the greatest damage to the Jewish People in our millenarian history.  No other country has EVER killed so many Jews – ever! – not even Hitler’s Germany.  Countless millions of precious Jewish souls have perished in the subtle American Spiritual Holocaust.  What is worse that someone – like an Arab – kills our body, or that someone else, nice and educated,  kills our soul?  If you do not understand the question is because you are already very dead.

Torah is Life, the Life of the Jewish People; but it is a spiritual Life to be reflected for the benefit of the Goyim, whom the Heavenly King, blessed be His Name, also loves.  Again, this is the Reason why He Chose us in the first place.  Oy!  But we occupied ourselves in America in becoming self-sufficient, highly educated, rich; in other words we became –  horrors of horrors – Americans!  I remember one day when I was still in America, that I asked a dear Rabbi in my area, why would he not make Aliyah with his family.  Suddenly, his eyes went really big as he looked at me with a great perplexity in his face, then he exclaimed in his sincere amazement:  “Why would I?  I am an American!  I’m a retired officer of the US Navy!  I love Israel, but THIS is my country.”  Oy va voy!  I can’t even express how sad I felt for this dear, dear Rabbi.

When our goals in Galut are not those of HaShem for us, we slowly but surely will miss the purpose of our lives.  And it is right there that we lose, at least, part of our wonderful Jewish soul.  What do you think shall happen to the next generation?  This process is treasonous because our soul dies non-painfully … it dies while believing that now we are starting to live at long last.

In many countries where we went the same effect took place:  They received us for whatever reason, then we gratefully adjusted, then we assimilated partially and then completely, then we became powerful, and finally we were persecuted and killed wholesale – Egypt, Babylon, Spain, Poland and Gemany are just a few examples of this process.  Ah, but like our ancestors before now deceived American Jews say:  “Oh no, not here!  Here is really different.  You see, the times are different, and these people are indeed different.”  And while the conversation placidly goes on, the clouds of the Second Shoah are already starting to blacken the horizon.

Why can we not do it differently for once?  Why?  Simply put:  Because HaShem will not allow it to be any different.  The thing is that if we do not comply with and fulfill our Covenant responsibilities, He will surely call us back to our Jewish senses the very hard way.  Why so hard?  Because, if He was capable of such a thing, he must be sick and tired of explaining to us — over and over — the same Contract which is always unfulfilled on our side.  We need to make Tshuvah … and do for good, because this time around things are going nuclear!

Adam haRishon was advised in Gan Eden of what not to do.  One single, easy Commandment in reference to that fatal tree and he could not do it.  The consequences were most swift and tragic.  And we don’t learn from it.  Our fathers in the desert were advised, but they did not comply and … boom!  And since then ti has been like that on, and on, and on…  We have been advised, no Commanded, to be Light to the Goyim; but nooo, we love the Darkness of the Goyim more than the Light of HaShem.  And so we become Christians, and Bhuddists, and Darwinists, and Capitalists or Communists … and Idiotists of all sorts, but not Light to the nations.

So, enters the End of Days:

Yoel 3.1-21
1  “For behold, in those Days and at that Time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem2  I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Yehoshaphat, and I will enter into Judgment with them there on account of My People, My Heritage, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations.  Also they have divided up My Land3  They have casted lots over My People; they have have given a boy as payment for a harlot; and they have sold a girl for wine, so that they may drink.
4  “Indeed, what have you to do with Me, Tyre and Sidon, and all the coasts of Philistia?  Will you retaliate against Me?  But if you retaliate against Me, I will return your retaliation upon your own head swiftly and speedily  5  because you have taken My Silver and My Gold, and you have carried My Prized Possessions into your temples.  6  Also the people of Judah and the people of Jerusalem you have sold to the Greeks, so that you may remove them far from their borders.  7  “Behold, I will raise them out of the place to which you have sold them, and I will return your retaliation upon your own head: 8 I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the people of Judah, and they will sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off.  For the Lord has spoken.”
9 Proclaim this among the nations:  “Prepare for war!  Wake up the mighty men; let all the men of war draw near; let them come up.  10  Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weak say, ‘I am strong’.”
11  Assemble and come, all you nations, and gather together all around.  Cause Your Mighty Ones to go down there, Lord.   12  Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the Valley of Yehoshaphat because there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations.  13  Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, go down because the winepress is full, the vats overflow, because their wickedness is great.
14  Multitudes, multitudes in the Vale of Judgment since the Day of the Lord is near in the Vale of Judgment.
15  The sun and moon will grow dark, And the stars will diminish their brightness. 16  Also, the Lord will roar from Zion and He will utter His Voice from Jerusalem.  The Heavens and earth shall shake, but the Lord will be a Shelter for His People, and He will be the Strength of the Children of Israel.   17  So you shall know that I am the Lord your G-d, dwelling in Zion My Holy Mountain.  Then Jerusalem shall be Holy, and no aliens shall ever pass through her again.”
18  And it will come to pass in that Day that the mountains shall drip with new Wine, the hills shall flow with Milk, and all the brooks of Judah shall be flooded with Water.  A Fountain will flow from the House of the Lord and shall water the Valley of Acacias.
19 Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom a desolate wilderness, because of violence against the people of Judah, because they shed innocent blood in their Land;  20  but Judah shall abide forever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation, 21 because I will acquit them of the guilt of bloodshed — whom I had not acquitted –because the Lord dwells in Zion.”

Wakeup dummies!  It is clear that G-d is about to judge the Nations on account of their despicable and lethal actions against us, Jews.  This means that before they get Judged, Israel shall have to endure our Last Attack from all those nations … and it will not be easy!  In fact, it shall be our darkest hour, since it will take place just before the Light of HaShem finally illuminates and cleans not only us, but the whole world.  May we all be acceptable in His Sight.  May Moshiach come speedily bringing Geulah in our days.

Shalom,
