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.

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!

Ya’akov
