The Dizzying Speed of it All

There is so much to write about. The earthquake/tsunami in Japan with the associated radioactive cloud from the nuclear meltdown. The brutal murder of five members of the Fogel family in their home in Itamar. Both events took place so close the the birthday of Moshe Rabbeinu, the 7th of Adar, in the year of Hoshana Rabba 5771, the seventh year of Sukkot. Add to that the earthquake in XChurch, New Zealand just three short weeks ago. Give me until midweek to see where this nuclear cloud is heading. Then I will post something. Hint: Remember my first post? About the South Asian Tsunami in Tevet of 5765 (Dec. 2004). Well in this Japanese catastrophe, one has the same three letters that were sweetened back then on the first year of Sukkot plus the peh from Japan. The peh is pakod pakaditi and stands for Moshe Rabbeinu. And it took place two days before his birthday/(and Jahrzeit but in a year with 2 Adars, Jahrzeits are commemerated in the first Adar.) So in this catastrophe four of the five final letters were sweetened. Of course pakod pakaditi means that the full measure of our suffering is sitting before the Heavenly throne, and G-d is now judging the world.

The first plague of the "earthquake season" was really about three weeks ago in XChurch, New Zealand. It is in keeping with the redemption from Egypt that the first plague is against the god of what is being judged. In Egypt it was the Nile River that was judged first with relatively small loss of life. In XChurch between 200 and 300 people lost their lives, and there was large scale destruction in the city. But most of the good people of the city are alive today, Baruch HaShem, but the man-god for about 2 billion of planet earth's residents was judged. It was not a stretch of the imagination that bigger things were coming now that the meat of the year of Hoshana Rabba lies before us. Even before the XChurch earthquake, warnings were all around us. Blackbirds were falling from the sky in Arkansas and Brazil. An entire state in the country/continent of Australia was underwater for weeks and then was hit by a massive cyclone. The dizzying amount of judgements on the world simply must be catalogued since the beginning of the year 5771. Now if this present unfolding catastrophe in Japan continues to turn into something more massive than the death toll from the earthquake/tsunami, this will turn out to be the 2nd whack of the willow branch bundle that I wrote about in my first post that I linked to above. What unfolds before Purim will tell the full tale of that whack. More later as more develops.

Until then buy silver to protect your assets as the dollar heads toward oblivion. Two potential dates this year for the collapse of the dollar are the day after Lag B'Omer (since Lag B'Omer is on a Sunday this year when the dollar is not traded) or on the 17th of Tamuz, the 235th Hebrew calendar anniversary of America's founding. Again these are potential dates. Nothing is for sure. Yet, if this is the 3rd year of the Sabbatical cycle after which ben David comes in the first year of the next cycle, then this is the year that the economy of Western Civilization has to collapse. Just make sure that when it does take place that you are where you want to be, for it will be very hard to buy oneself out of a bad situation if the currency is worthless. Sometime, G-d willing, by the end of Adar 5772 Mashiach ben Yosef possibly will arise if present trends continue. So the value of silver must continue to rise before MBY is revealed. Secondly do teshuvah now, for all sins that you can think of. Hoshana Rabba is really the last opportunity to do teshuvah in a complete sense before one's fate in Olam Haba is sealed forever. Look for certain aspects of free will to be taken away sometime after Hoshana Rabba of 5772 (October 19, 2011).

Finally a discussion about why the other years of Sukkot were not so happy, and even why this year will involve suffering of so many Jews as individuals, must take place. This is a delicate subject which must be made in another post, lest I receive tons of hate mail. In the meantime, I am writing a letter to one of the people who could have made a difference in 5765 so that the years of Sukkot would have been happier for all Jews and righteous gentiles throughout the world. Gog W. Bush, Jr, the gilgul (reincarnation) of Eliphaz would have been the Gog who came against Jerusalem, and the encounter would have been more pleasant than what seems to be on the horizon. The letter that is being written will hopefully create the right environment for teshuvah from this person in particular and a half million of his followers throughout the world. This teshuvah will ameliorate the effects that we can expect when a Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt supplies Hamas in Gaza with all the missiles that they will need to bombard the coastal plain including Tel Aviv and all of its suburbs (all of them. There will most likely be no exceptions this time unlike during the First Persian Gulf War in 5751 in the 2nd year of Rosh HaShanah when one suburb was spared. Therefore, teshuvah will be required to reinvoke the promise of the Hazon Ish on this matter.) from precisely the same place where four Northern Gaza yishuvim peacefully existed before the evacuations of Av 5765. The purpose of this letter is not to spread hate but to create an atmosphere of Achdut in the Jewish people. Also, more later.

Good night, and Happy Birthday Moshe Rabbeinu! If this is the 2nd whack, there are three more to go.

Absolutely thrilled that you are back blogging! I am so happy to read this new material!
I am frum in an unfrum country. I cannot believe Hashem has not done this before. These people mock me for my belief in Hashem, they make fun of me because I want a husband instead of a roulette wheel of casual lovers. They tell me outright that to believe Hashem would send judgements to punish them for their amoral lifestyles is absolutely insane. They SAY! OUT LOUD! TO ME!," Oh a JEWISH G-D? You don't REALLY believe in that NONSENSE- do you???
A world full of people so full of their own EGO and SELF-Importance that NOT ONLY do they refuse to worship/daven/kneel before the ONE; but they won't believe a G-D would PUNISH them. That somehow, they are doing nothing wrong.
Hashem, hurry up. They are uncorrectable. Everyone who is capable of doing teshuva has done it. Surely.

Would it not be better to buy shekels with ones dollars? It would still be reachable if you need it. With silver you will need to sell it to someone who will be able to buy it. If the dollar collapses there are plenty of americans in Eretz HaKodesh who depend on and live on dollars. If the dollar goes belly up, all the american retirees will have to go to work! Eeeek!

Neshama: It is sad that it has to happen this way. But when the dollar collapses, all fiat currencies will suffer somewhat, and inflation will go throught the roof. Silver and gold will hold their value. And you are right. The third year of the Sabbatical cycle before ben David comes will be hard on everyone, wherever they are in the world. It says it in the Talmud (Sanhedrin 97a) that the third year brings with it much suffering. Since the dollar's collapse will be close to the end of the third year, though, we can only hope that the economic devastation will be short. MBY will be revealed, G-d willing in the first half of 5772, the Year of Shmini Atzereth. The economy will improve under his leadership in the fourth year of the Sabbatical cycle. And in the fifth year, 5773, there will be great material and spiritual growth. But the currency of the new age will be weighed in silver at least here in Eretz Yisrael. In the rest of the world one just has to study Sefer Daniel, chapter seven, to see how Malkhut Edom tries to rebuild itself. They will start out trying to set up ten economic superstates, each with their own Governor and currency. Canada, the US, and Mexico will have the Amero, for instance. This New World Order system will fail miserably. So an 11th "little horn" will come out of nowhere and overthrow three of the ten Governors, and establish his own Kingdom. Chazal seem to debate whether he is from Yishmael or Amalek. One of them takes over at least three of the economic superstates for a cryptic amount of time expressed in Sefer Daniel as: a time and times and a half. This could potentially be three and one half years, that is the last three and one half years of the Sabbatical cycle before ben David comes. This would mean that ben David comes in a year after we bless the new month (of years) to come, the Sabbatical year before the Years of Cheshvan. Ah so is there a source for this in the Talmud? Yes there is. "There are three things which come when one least expects it: Mashiach, a lost object, and a scorpion." (Sanhedrin 97a) The scorpion is the Mazal for Cheshvan.

Hi Dov,
What is the source that silver will go up in value before Moshiach comes?
What about gold?

In these critical times, when nations are challenging one another and violence is increasing in an unbelievable manner, the Jews have the power to bring about peace in the entire world.
In order that the entire world should be orderly, it is essential that each and every one of the "seventy nations" should be influenced so that they will work on settling the world through spreading the Seven Mitzvos & influencing the nations to keep their mitzvos, in order to assist our task of making the world into a dwelling place for G-d, and help bring about the arrival of Moshiach. Every individual must do everything possible to hasten his coming. In order to bring awareness of these Seven Mitzvos to the world I have recently created a blog for this sole purpose

http://creedofnoah.blogspot.com

Please add this to your blogroll (& encourage your fellow bloggers to add my blog or add it to their social networking sites) to help spread the awareness of the existence of these Noahide Commandments.
Appreciated.

I just received this comment. I edited out the truly offensive and downright racist parts and am publishing it as someone's anonymous comment. I do not necessarily agree with all of the comment, but the outrageous silence of the media concerning the butchery of the Fogels is palpable. And perhaps for this last straw, much of Malkhut Edom will be destroyed:

This is important for all of you to digest.The media is totally antisemitic, and all are haters of Israel. And when I say media, I mean all the T.V. networks (cable included), all the major newspapers, magazines, Time , Newsweek and the like. The big story of the year thus far is definitely the slaughter of the innocent Fogels.. Rather than providing THIS STORY, top billing, we are being flooded with details of the relatively minor events involving Japanese tsunamis, earthquakes, nuclear meltdowns, deaths of thousands, injuries of thousands, thousands homeless, dislocation of hundreds of thousands,evacuations, water and food shortages- but who cares? In order of importance how can these trifling incidents, which occured in a faraway land, and an enemy land at that, compare with the death of an innocent family of 5 Jews.

Why are we so obsessed with the welfare of the heathen Japanese people when we should all focus all of our the concerns on G-d's chosen.

When was the last time A Jew killed an innocent child, the Gaza campaign, a totally defensive and utterly justified endeavor, with the Lord's wholehearted blessing, resulted in absolutely no civilian deaths or injuries. That should put matters in a proper context.

I AM CIRCULATING A PETITION FOR ALL JEWS TO BOYCOTT THE MAJOR AMERICAN, CANADIAN, AND BRITISH PERIODICALS, NEWS NETWORKS, ETC., ETC. ANTISEMITISM IN ALL FORMS MUST CEASE- NEVER AGAIN. THIS ANTI-JEWISH CONSPIRACY MUST BE FOUGHT. NEVER AGAIN. AM ISROEL CHAI

Wondering why xChurch in Virginia USA or xChurch in the UK did not get the same judgement? If it was the false god, the Great Lie, why did not haShem judge the Vatican. The source of the lie.

Just does not logically add up.

Shiloh: Really quickly. XChurch in New Zealand is far larger than the other XChurchs in the world. When going after the man-god conceptually, the largest of the cities has to be hit. Secondly, although this is the year of Hoshana Rabba ostensibly all can still do teshuvah until the end of the year for their lack of human decency. If you notice the places being hit will probably be with us in the Messianic Era, but they need major chastisement now in order to merit to be there. Australia and New Zealand are not sources for horrific evil in the world. The Japanese allied with Hitler in WW2 and therefore extended the war by forcing America to divide its forces to fight the Axis Powers, but the Japanese in no way supported Hitler's genocide. As a matter of fact, if Jews could get to Japan at that time, the Japanese were a haven from the Holocaust. In short, they need major chastisement for this one thing alone and maybe other things too, but the Japanese will make it into Yemot HaMashiach. The Vatican on the other hand was Hitler's teacher on how to exterminate Jews and by virtue of the Concordat of 1933 gave moral sanction to what Hitler wanted to do. Since the Vatican will be totally destroyed before Yemot HaMashiach, this more final judgement will either occur in the part of the 5771 which is after Mincha Gedolah for the year when the Musaph offering has already been offered for the seven remaining nations of Hoshana Rabba, or it will occur after the historic seal of the year of Hoshana Rabba is placed on the judgement for the following year of Shmini Atzereth on Hoshana Rabba 5772. Just for informational purposes, Mincha Gedolah for the year 5771 is after the 8th of Tamuz. Expect judgements to become more intense after that date, for at that time some nations can receive their final judgements.

I feel our focus should be more on the path forward it is not healthy or God's way to focus on our inevidable demise. Afterall, He never promised we would live forever on earth but only if we follow the way the truth and the life would we find eternity with Him in the Spirit realm of Heaven. Perhaps we need to connect to the universal source of knowledge through deep meditation and ask God our Creator for the answers to all man's problems before it is too late. Remember when we pray we speak to God and when we meditate He Speaks back to us, through the Holy Spirit and our inner entity. Order your advanced copy of my book today and get your own "Illumination of Conscience" as you work on discovering your own truth.

Oh one last thing:

According to the Gaon of Vilna the last seven bulls offered up on Hoshana Rabba are for seven of Edom's 35 nations. So if HaShem wants to, he can swiftly give any of Yishmael's 35 nations their final judgements now. He does not have to wait until after the 8th of Tamuz to do that since all of Yishmael's bulls have already been offered up on the previous years of Sukkot.

Reb Dov
What of us who cant survive the rent situation here in Eretz Yisrael. I know this might seem lashon hara against the land but our rent has doubled in the last three years, can this continue? I cant even find a real bal atza in this question since most just tell us to beg from my schveir. We will have to move maybe to the north but who can pay a mover; out of Yehudah as our savings and the good will of our friends and bal habait is dried up as my health. $1100/mo in a Yehuda settlement for a formerly $500 apartment, where do we go from here? How can a person without a 'good' family buy when you need 60% down?
