Pride?

I have a dissonance. The dissonance is defined by the close proximity of Parshat Pinchas and Matot in timing to the stabbing of 6 participants of the Jerusalem Gay Pride parade. In Parshat Pinchas we have Pinchas removing the evil from the midst of the ISRAELITE CAMP by the piercing through of the Israelite man and the midianite woman whilst ‘in the act’. Then in Matot we have an account of the full-scale divinely mandated vengeance assault upon Midian:

The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Avenge the people of Israel on the Midianites. Afterward you shall be gathered to your people.” Num 31:1, 2

The dissonance is further increased by folks becoming all rabbinical in an effort to distance themselves and their version of Judaism from the stabber and the stabbing of 6 participants of the Jerusalem Gay Pride parade. Technically speaking the participants were not ‘in the act’, making the stabbing wrong but still begs the question. The question of whether or not this is just the thin end of the wedge of other potential pride parades on the horizon. Whilst at this stage a ‘thieves’ pride parade may be a longer way into the future, the area of pedophilia as an acceptable lifestyle choice/ orientation is rapidly garnering academic support:

The statement that pedophilia is “natural and normal” was made not three decades ago but last July 2103. It was made not in private but as one of the central claims of an academic presentation delivered, at the invitation of the organisers, to many of the key experts in the field at a conference held by the University of Cambridge.

Ken Plummer is emeritus professor of sociology at Essex University, where he has an office and teaches courses, the most recent scheduled for last month. “The isolation, secrecy, guilt and anguish of many paedophiles,” he wrote in Perspectives on pedophilia, “are not intrinsic to the phenomen[on] but are derived from the extreme social repression placed on minorities …

“Paedophiles are told they are the seducers and rapists of children; they know their experiences are often loving and tender ones. They are told that children are pure and innocent, devoid of sexuality; they know both from their own experiences of childhood and from the children they meet that this is not the case.”

Ray Blanchard, professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto, who led the American Psychiatric Association’s (APA) working group on the subject, said that unless some other way was found of encompassing hebephilia in the new manual, that was “tantamount to stating that the APA’s official position is that the sexual preference for early pubertal children is normal”. (Hebephilia is the sexual preference for children in early puberty, typically 11 to 14-year-olds.)

The more acceptable hebephilia(?) followed by paedophile rights and paedophile pride parades are the next thing on the agenda? Do you ever get the feeling that the moral fabric of our Jewish society/ homeland is gradually crumbling before our very eyes? Will we see the open scale media saturation of those liberals who will inevitably condemn those who object to paedophilia and who deny their children to paedophiles as being like ISIS extremists sans stabbing paedophiles at paedophile ‘pride’ parades?

My dissonance is further increased when I hear our prime minister waxing lyrical about the ancient coin found at the western wall which firmly establishes the Jews hold on Jerusalem for religious reasons and how Israel is a safe haven for the gay lifestyle unlike the barbarous Islamic nations which surround us.

My dissonance is further increased when I hear our religious leaders rightly condemn the stabbing but wrongly fail to mention that the gay lifestyle is SIN too.

How much of all that we all presently hold dear will crumble further? Will we descend to the level where we will offer our children to the modern-day Molech of paedophilia for the sake of love, community cohesion and all the other bullshit buzzwords and moral(less) theories of the liberal political correct?

A riot broke out in the haredi neighborhood Beit Yisrael in central Jerusalem on Saturday night, after large police forces used heavy force to arrest Rabbanit Yocheved Grossman, on suspicion that she knew theharedi stabber who attacked the controversial gay pride parade last Thursday.

Witnesses related that the rabbanit was arrested amid the use of heavy violence at her home on Ratzabi Street, and in the process was wounded by the officers and rushed to the hospital for treatment.

This is in fact the second police crackdown on the Grossman family following the stabbing by Yishai Shlissel, who was released just three weeks before the attack after having conducted a similar stabbing against the same parade in 2005 – an oversight the police have caught much flak for.

Police forces arrived at the family home late last week searching for Rabbi Idan Grossman, the rabbanit’s husband, who organizes protests against the gay pride parade in Jerusalem.

When they found the rabbi not to be at home, the officers asked his wife to accompany them but she refused – at which point she was dragged dozens of meters to a police car. Her violent arrest did not come until Saturday night.

Attorney Itamar Ben-Gvir, who is representing the couple, said on Saturday night, “Jerusalem district police are acting in panic and in hysteria in a goal of covering up their fiasco with Yishai Shlissel.”

“It’s not clear why they’re arresting people who oppose the (gay) pride parade. Is it forbidden to oppose a parade like this?”

The annual gay pride march through Jerusalem has been the source of heated controversy, due to the city’s holy status to Jews, Christians and Muslims.

Since the 1990s, gay activist groups have held an annual mega-parade in the largely-secular Tel Aviv. However, in 2002 they began holding a smaller, far more contentious march through Jerusalem, amid bitter opposition from the city’s largely traditional and religious residents.

Unlike the Tel Aviv event, the Jerusalem march is usually met with loud counter-protests. In recent years, however, protests have been smaller as some haredi leaders urged their followers to stay away from what they term the “abomination parade” altogether.

Lies and Video

There are some things which are down right despicable. A case in point is a recent video promoted by One for Israel Ministry which promotes a lie. The lie is that the Rabbis purposely removed Isaiah 53 from the weekly haftarah readings. Here is a montage of the lie:

facts copyRabbi Singer remarking on the lie many years ago says:

This well-worn claim that the Jews have deliberately removed Isaiah 53 from the Haftorah because rabbis are “so scared” that their worshipers might bolt from their synagogues for the local baptism pool upon hearing this chapter read aloud from the pulpit is a popular argument used by missionaries to sustain their Christological interpretation of Isaiah 53.

This contention, however, is so devoid of merit that I often find it difficult to know where to begin in my response.

Let’s start by exploring the origin of the Jewish tradition to read a portion of theHaftorah on the Sabbath day.

Those unfamiliar with the source of the custom to read the Haftorah might conclude from this missionary argument that the Jews read all of the Prophets during the yearly cycle (as we do the entire Pentateuch), and we somehow only leave out Isaiah 53 from the annual reading of the Haftorah. Actually, less than five percent of the prophets are read during the Sabbath service throughout the year.

The Jewish people adopted the custom to read the Haftorah long before the advent of Christianity. During the traumatic events that led to the festival of Chanukah, Antiochus Epiphanes IV (ruled from 175-164 B.C.E.) decreed that it was forbidden for the Jews to read the Torah in his effort to eradicate the Jewish faith. To circumvent this spiritual crisis, the Jewish people began to read from a selected portion of the Prophets on each Sabbath to substitute the designated reading from the Torah. This custom was retained after the decree was rescinded.

The particular Sabbath portion of the Prophets was carefully selected for one of two reasons. Either because the theme of a segment of the Prophets closely correlated to the portion of the Torah read that week, or because that section of the Prophets thematically corresponded to a festival or a historical circumstance during that Sabbath. It is therefore easy to understand why Isaiah 53 is never read in the synagogue. Isaiah 53 bears no relationship to any of the chapters of the Pentateuch and is unrelated to any holiday or historical circumstance on the Jewish calendar. Therefore this chapter was not included in any Haftorah portion.

Needless to say, this missionary argument is particularly preposterous when we consider that the custom to read the Haftorah in the synagogue was implemented more than 2,150 years ago, long before the Christian era. It is puzzling why missionaries are unaware of this fact when the custom to read the Haftorah is mentioned quite clearly in the New Testament (Acts 13:14-15), long before the Jewish people could have an inkling that a heretical sect would emerge that would misinterpret this extraordinary chapter.

This remarkable claim that the Jews expunged Isaiah 53 from the Haftorah is probably the most anti-Semitic argument used by missionaries. It thrives on and perpetuates the medieval Christian portrait of the Jews – a cunning, scheming, diabolical bunch – who are capable of rejecting Jesus, although deep down – in their heart of hearts, believe in him and have conspired to make sure that every other Jew rejects him. Only the Devil is capable of this dastardly deed. In other words, although the Devil knows the truth and believes in God, he rejects Him and seduces others to do the same. This dark portrait of the Jew as the Devil (John 8:44) is as old as Christianity itself, and things haven’t changed much.

How long must we endure this re-cycled garbage by the Christians who call themselves messianic Jews?

Jesus is in my soup and now in my Prayer BOOK TOO!!

Yeshua Revealed as Sar Hapanim in Rosh Hashanah prayer

A typical propaganda poster to advertrise that Jews have been praying to Yeshua (Jesus) all along. And now even more devious  jews have removed the name Yeshua altogether in modern-day prayer books.

A devious plan by modern-day Jewish prayer books to deny that Jews have always prayed to Yeshua by deletion of the word Yeshua? Or is it simply that a word in old Rosh Hoshana Machzor (prayer-book for Rosh Hoshana) has been subject to Christian censorship and is now indeterminable? Perhaps there is another explanation?

They the messianics pushing their Yeshua agenda will say:

“Go to a Jewish bookstore today and look in contemporary Rosh HaShanah machzor and you’ll very likely see that the name Yeshua is gone from the prayer.”

That numerous Jewish books have been censored is no secret to Jews over the centuries is plainly outlined in the following:

The theory of the Catholic Church that it had a duty to protect man from endangering his eternal salvation through exposure to heretical books and ideas made its form of censorship the most intolerant, and the power of the Church enabled it to become all-pervasive. Although the Church had denounced and burned books early in its history, the first instance of Jews being forced to eliminate supposed blasphemies against Christianity dates from the mid-13th century. After the disputation of Barcelona in 1263, James, the king of Aragon, ordered that the Jews must within three months eliminate all the passages in their writings which were found objectionable. Non-compliance with this order was to result in heavy penalties and the destruction of the works concerned. The official intrusion of the Church into Jewish life came to a head with its persecution of the Talmud (see *Talmud, Burning of ). Listed in 1559 in the Index auctorum et librorum prohibitorum issued by Pope Paul IV, the Talmud was subjected to innumerable disputations, attacks, and burnings. In March 1589 Sixtus V extended the ban in his Index to “Books of the Jews” containing anything which might be construed as being against the Catholic Church. In 1595 the Index expurgatorius (Sefer ha-Zikkuk) of Hebrew books was established. This Index listed books which could not be read without having individual passages revised or deleted before publication. Official revisers, who often were apostate Jews, were appointed to effect this revision according to the rules laid down in De correctione librorum, which appeared with the Index of Clement VIII in 1596. Objectionable passages in Hebrew books and even expressions such as “Talmud” and “goi” were deleted, altered, and at times torn out. Four hundred and twenty Hebrew books, beginning with Ẓeror ha-Mor by Abraham Saba (Constantinople, 1514) and ending with Sefer Seliḥot ke-Minhag Ashkenazim (Venice, n.d.), are listed in a manuscript of the Sefer ha-Zikkuk (published by N. Porges, in Festschrift … A. Berliner (1903), 273–95). There are thousands of Hebrew books with signs of the censor’s work, words or whole passages blacked out with ink, and censors’ signatures at the end of the volumes. Quite a number of textual errors in the standard editions of Hebrew texts owe their origin to such censorial activity. (link here)

The thing is that some old ancient Machzors print: וישו”ע where the is an abbreviation for a bigger word or at least two other words.

And other old Machzors print: וישוע without the “.

In view of the above with respect to the censorship of Jewish books which include our prayer books, may we assume that the at least two versions found in the older Machzorim represent an allusion to a biblical character and the other to an enforced [by the Church] reference to Yeshua (Jesus) placed in the Jewish Rosh Hoshana Machzors respectively? The allusion to the biblical character may be found in the book of Ezra:

Yehoshua ben Yehotsadak, and Yeshua ben Yotsadak are the same person. He was the High Priest at the time of the rebuilding of the 2nd Temple and together with Zerubavel led the people who returned to Israel from Babylon. Spelling changes occur quite often in the Bible. The spelling Yeshua (without the hey) is in the books Ezra and Nehemia, while the other spelling [with the hey] is in Hagai, Zecharia and Divrei Hayamim. Yehoshua ben Yehotsadak was a figure who loomed large in Jewish History since he was able to offer sacrifices on the altar of G-d after the Babylonian exile.

Originally shofars and silver trumpets were blown by the Priests in the tabernacle and the temple at the eastern gate. The blowing of a Shofar in a synagogue is a rabbinic invention even when the temple stood, since synagogues [Greek word indicating that synagogues were innovated in at least the Greek period before Jesus] were built for those who lived so far away from the temple or where too young and/ or infirm to make it to the temple.  Even Jesus made use of a synagogue {Mark 1:21}. The inclusion of the Priest Yeshua ben Yotsadak in the context of Rosh Hoshana and in the context of the blowing the shofar and sacrificial offerings makes sense to be placed within the prayers on Rosh Hoshana. Makes sense because it expresses the desire of those in the diaspora to reinstate the people back in the land along with the temple rebuilt and a fully functioning priesthood. After all is this not what have wanted and prayed for all these centuries of exile?

In contrast we have the authorative statement of ‘Rabbi’ Simcha Perlmutter {not a real rabbi or Jewish either} in an interview:

“So the last prayer says that we call upon the name of Yeshua that it may atone for all our sins.  Now I want you to understand very clearly that I did not write this prayer, and I did not publish this book, and I did not write this book. This book was written by Rabbis long ago, and this prayer cannot be taken out of this prayer book, not by me, and not by any other Rabbi. Even if a Rabbi desired to extract it, he could not—not if he is an orthodox and observant Rabbi who goes by rabbinical halachah, because he is bound by what we call the word and the prayers of Chazal. “Chazal” means, Chachameinu zichronam livracha, “Our wise men of blessed memory.” And what Chazal has put in, we are of insufficient authority to remove.”

Who says that Jews and Rabbis cannot take things out of the Prayer books or reinstate things back in any of their books? A classic case is the Aleinu prayer:

Approximately a century after the Aleinu prayer was incorporated into the daily liturgy, circa 1300, an apostate Jew, known as Pesach Peter, denounced it as a secret anti-Christian slur on the grounds that the word וריק—varik, “and emptiness”—had, in gematria (Hebrew numerology) the value of 316, the same as ישׁו—Jesus. In vain did the rabbis defend the sentence on the grounds that the expression came from the Book of Isaiah, or that the whole prayer came from Joshua, and therefore must predate Christianity, or, if the prayer was attributed to Rav, living in 3rd-century Babylonia (Persia), that he never encountered a Christian. It probably did not help that at roughly the same time a rabbinic commentary on the prayers, Arugat haBosem by Abraham ben Azriel, made the point that, in gematria, “vanity and emptiness” had the same value as ישׁו ומחמט—”Jesus and Mohammed”. As a result of this, in various places the Christian authorities censored the sentence, usually omitting it.

Today in my Ashkenazik Prayer book the ‘offending’ sentence has been restored back into the main text with an explanatory footnote. Even in other prayer books where the ‘offending’ sentence is removed a footnote exists to explain the omission.

Jesus in my Soup

You see in respect to the above its possible to find Jesus virtually anywhere:

This evening after Shabbat I was alerted to a very serious situation which if true could rock my world! Here I refer to an ordinary every daysoup cup copy thing which hides an earth shattering truth that most Israelis and Jews in particular have been blind to on a daily basis for centuries!! Imagine the Chutzpah as I was about to enjoy what I thought was a perfectly kosher instant soup!

How could I be so blind and foolish when the book of Revelation written in Greek calls both the Christian god (Jesus), the Messianic god (Yeshua) and the ‘almighty god’; the Alpha (Α) and the Omega (Ω), the first and the last….letters in the Greek alphabet.

Now just how the Alpha (Α) and the Omega (Ω), the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet can be equated with the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet; aleph (א) and tav (ת) I do not know. May be I am being just too fussy about this point. May be its just case of belieeeeeeeving it? Even though there is that nothing earlier than 125CE which exists in terms of the smallest fragmentary piece of NT Greek and earliest complete NT documents date from 350CE. As to an existing Hebrew NT, well ……forget about it!

The equating of course is no doubt the latest development for those in the Christian and Messianic movements hell-bent on converting Jews to one of the many brands of what is essentially ‘Christian’, even though some Messianic movements swear blind they are ‘different’. The benefit of the equating is that a survey of the Jewish Scriptures shows the ‘aleph tav’ (את) or Jesus/ Yeshua is bouncing off nearly every page of the Jewish Scriptures. And now Jesus/ Yeshua is bouncing off my soup packet too, apparently.

Of course the grammatical has to be ignored in order to have Jesus in your soup too. The ‘aleph tav’ (את) however, is a Hebrew grammatical sign of the definite direct object, not translated in English but generally preceding and indicating the accusative. A direct object is a noun or pronoun that receives the action of a verb or shows the result of the action. It answers the question “What?” or “Whom?” after an action verb.

בְּרֵאשִׁית, בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים, אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם, וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ

In the beginning G-d created the heaven and the earth. Genesis 1:1

The ‘aleph tav’ highlighted in bold tells us who (G-d/ אֱלֹהִים) created (בָּרָא) the heavens (הַשָּׁמַיִם) and the earth (הָאָרֶץ).

soup caption copy

We removed (Yeshua/ Jesus) the noodles and added croutons!

The grammatical of course is largely ignored by those Christians and messianics and in fact does not appear hardly at all in most web sites of the Christian and Messianic movements. In view of the fundamental grammatical use of the ‘aleph tav’ no wonder the ‘aleph tav’ is found on nearly every page of the Hebrew Scriptures, without ‘aleph tav’ one would not know who is doing what!

Knowing the grammatical usage of ‘aleph tav’ means that Jesus / Yeshua is no longer in my soup. Instead of reading:

We removed (Yeshua/ Jesus) noodles and added crutons!

I can be rest assured that the manufacturers have removed just the noodles and I have croutons instead of noodles! Just to drive the point home of the mis-usage of the Aleph Tav. In a nutshell the Aleph Tav is telling me who removed the noodles. If Aleph-Tav really translates as “Yeshua”, then the Messianics have a BIG problem!

Just look at some of these examples below:

Gen. 9:22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw YESHUA the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.
Ex. 8:26 And Moses said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall sacrifice YESHUA the abomination of the Egyptians to the LORD our God: lo, shall we sacrifice YESHUA the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, and will they not stone us?
Lev. 26:40 If they shall confess YESHUA their iniquity, and YESHUA the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me;

Charred Remains of 1,500-Year-Old Hebrew Scroll Deciphered

By Elizabeth Goldbaum
19 hours ago

A burned 1,500-year-old Hebrew scroll found on the shore of the Dead Sea was recently deciphered, 45 years after archaeologists discovered it, researchers in Israel have announced.

“The deciphering of the scroll, which was a puzzle for us for 45 years, is very exciting,” Sefi Porath, the archaeologist who discovered the scroll in 1970 in Ein Gedi, Israel, said in a statement fromThe Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA).

Charred Remains of 1,500-Year-Old Hebrew Scroll DecipheredThe Ein Gedi parchment scroll is the oldest scroll discovered from the Hebrew Bible since the Dead Sea Scrolls, which date to the end of the Second Temple period, about 2,000 years ago.

The parchment scroll was so charred that it was illegible to the naked eye. Only with advanced technology did the scroll reveal the opening verses of the book of Leviticus, the third book of the Hebrew Bible.

The researchers weren’t expecting to be able to pull information from the burned scroll.

“This discovery absolutely astonished us; we were certain it was just a shot in the dark but decided to try and scan the burnt scroll anyway,” said Pnina Shor, curator and director of the IAA’s Dead Sea Scrolls Project.

The fire damage to the Ein Gedi scrolls made themimpossible to open, so the IAA worked with scientists from Israel and abroad to scan the scrolls with a microcomputed tomography machine (micro-CT), which is “just like what they do in the doctor’s office but at a very high resolution, probably a hundred times more accurate than the medical procedures that we do,” said Brent Seales, a professor of computer science at the University of Kentucky. Seales analyzed the scans with a digital imaging software that virtually unrolled the scroll and allowed him to visualizethe text.

Seales wanted to unpack the layers of the scroll to reconstruct how the text would look if the scroll were opened. “Initially, we didn’t know if there would be writing, or what the writing would be, so it was absolutely a big mystery revealed right at the lab,” Seales told Live Science.

The scrolls were unearthed in Ein Gedi, which translates to “Spring of the Goat,” a desert oasis on the western shore of the Dead Sea, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) southeast of Jerusalem. Based on ruins of a Chalcolithic, or early Bronze Age, sanctuary dating to the year 4000 B.C., Ein Gedi’s first known residents established themselves there about 5,000 years ago.

The oasis is notable in the Bible as the site where King David fled to escape the jealous and vengeful King Saul. David survived and eventually succeeded Saul as King of Israel from around 1010 to 970 B.C.

“Ein Gedi was a Jewish village in the Byzantine period (A.D. 4th to 7th centuries) and had a synagogue with an exquisite mosaic floor and a Holy Ark,” said. This marked the first time that an archaeological dig had uncovered a Torah scroll in a synagogue, Porath noted.

The Holy Ark is a chest or cupboard, often ornately carved, with doors that open away from each other to reveal the Torah scrolls. These arks typically sit toward the front of a synagogue.

Ein Gedi “was completely burnt to the ground, and none of its inhabitants ever returned to reside there again, or to pick through the ruins in order to salvage valuable property,” Porath said. During archaeological excavations of the burned synagogue, researchers found fragments of the burned scrolls; a bronze, seven-branched candelabrum (or menorah); the community’s money box holding 3,500 coins, glass and ceramic oil lamps; and perfume vessels, Porath explained.

“We have no information regarding the cause of the fire, but speculation about the destruction ranges from bedouin raiders from the region east of the Dead Sea to conflicts with the Byzantine government,” Porath said.

Although the Ein Gedi scrolls were recovered not too far from the well-known Dead Sea Scrolls, they are considered separate Seales said, because they were found in a synagogue.

The Dead Sea Scrolls were hidden from approaching Roman armies in caves near Qumran in the Judean Desert, which extends east of Jerusalem to the Dead Sea. The ancient scrolls weren’t discovered again until 1947, when a bedouin shepherd of Arab ancestry happened upon them.

The iconic Dead Sea Scrolls date from the third to first centuries A.D. Although Hebrew is most frequently used throughout the scrolls, about 15 percent is in Aramaic, and several writings are in Greek. The 230 manuscripts are often referred to as “biblical scrolls” because they are copies of works that make up the Hebrew Bible.

The text

On the newly decipheredscroll, the text (from the beginning of the book of Leviticus), translated from the original Hebrew, reads as follows:

“The Lord summoned Moses and spoke to him from the tent of meeting, saying: Speak to the people of Israel and say to them: When any of you bring an offering of livestock to the Lord, you shall bring your offering from the herd or from the flCharred Remains of 1,500-Year-Old Hebrew Scroll Decipheredock. If the offering is a burnt offering from the herd, you shall offer a male without blemish; you shall bring it to the entrance of the tent of meeting, for acceptance in your behalf before the Lord. You shall lay your hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it shall be acceptable in your behalf as atonement for you. The bull shall be slaughtered before the Lord; and Aaron’s sons the priests shall offer the blood, dashing the blood against all sides of the altar that is at the entrance of the tent of meeting. The burnt offering shall be flayed and cut up into its parts. The sons of the priest Aaron shall put fire on the altar and arrange wood on the fire. Aaron’s sons the priests shall arrange the parts, with the head and the suet, on the wood that is on the fire on the altar.” (Leviticus 1:1-8).

The biblical text marks the first time a Torah scroll was found inside a synagogue in any archaeological excavation, according to the IAA.

“The knowledge that we are preserving the most important find of the 20th century and one of the Western world’s most important cultural treasures causes us to proceed with the utmost care and caution, and use the most advanced technologies available today,” Porath said.

“This collection at the IAA is full of other fragments that might be analyzed, so in a way, this is a beginning rather than an ending,” Seales said.

The King of Persia Will Destroy the World

By Tamar Yonah
7/12/2009, 12:00 AM

WORLD WAR III

A three hour [nuclear?] war.  Two thirds of the world’s population destroyed? The West obliterated? Is this what the King of Persia [Iran] will do?

A few shows back, I read out one of the more famous predictions of what mankind may face in the future during the Messianic era. It was taken from MEDRISH “YALKUT SHIMONI” (Yeshiya 60). I roughly translated it from the Hebrew on air, but I now received a better and complete translation in my email inbox just yesterday already in English, so I am reposting this article from  www.torahnews.org here:

WORLD WAR THREE

MEDRISH “YALKUT SHIMONI” (Yeshiya 60):

“Rabbi Yitzhak said: The year that  Melech HaMoshiach will be revealed, all the kings of the nations of the world will provoke each other. The king of Persia [in modern times they changed the name of their country to “Iran”] will threaten the king of Arabia [today called “Saudi” Arabia] and because of this the king of Arabia will go to the king of Edom [USA] for advice.

Afterwards the king of Persia will destroy [most of] the world. The remaining nations will be hysterical and frantic and fall on their faces and will be seized as if by “birth pains”.

And the people of Israel will be frantic and hysterical and they will say, where will we come and go? Where will be come and go?

And Hashem will say to them: Do not fear my children, do not fear. All that I have done I did only for you. Why are you afraid? The time for your Redemption has come!

THE EXPLANATION OF THIS MEDRISH:

Rabbi Yitzhak said [about 2000 years ago!]:

The year that  Melech HaMoshiach will be revealed [what is expected to happen in the world at the time when Melech HaMoshiach will be revealed], all the kings of the nations of the world will provoke1 each other [the threats of war among the nations will be heard in every corner of the world throughout the countries and between one another].

SUMMARY OF THE DEVELOPMENTS

[The numbers in parenthesis refer to further explanations found in the Hebrew version]

PHASE 1   (2) King of Persia [Leader of Iran] (4) will threaten (3) the King of Arabia [threats of war against the king of Saudi Arabia (which is the only Arab country which still has the name “Arabia”)]

PHASE 2   (5) The king of Arabia goes to Edom to get advice from them [The king of Saudi Arabia goes to the Western countries, which are led by America, to consult about how to act against the threat of war from Iran].

PHASE 3   “And King of Persia goes back (6) and destroys the whole world [it is clear that you cannot destroy the whole world with conventional weapons. It means to annihilate the world with nuclear weapons. [“and destroys the whole world”– the meaning isn’t actually the whole world, the meaning is “most of it is as all of it”, meaning to destroy most of the countries of the world]”.

“And all the nations of the world will be frantic and hysterical and “falling on their faces” and will be as if seized by (7) something like birth pains [a terrible and horrified fear that was unknown until now will grasp all the remaining nations – lest they too will die in a nuclear war (because they will be unable to protect themselves from the nuclear explosion and the radioactivity that will be formed)].

And the people of Israel will be frantic and hysterical [because of the terrible fear that will be in the world that Iran (Persia) will also attack Israel]. And they will say, where will we come and go [since there will be no possibility to find help or support and there will be no natural way to be saved – and about this situation it is said “we have no one to rely on except our Father in Heaven”] and they will say: “Where will be come and go?” [The Medrish repeats this twice to emphasize the helplessness and fear that will be then].

And Hashem will say to them [HaKadosh Baruch Hu to the people of Israel]:  do not fear my children [you have nothing to fear], all that I have done I did only for you [HaKadosh Baruch Hu calms Israel, that all the destruction of war was only for your good – to destroy the wicked Kingdom of Edom and to remove evil from this world and make it possible for the Melech HaMoshiach to be revealed and rule over the world] Why are you afraid? “The time  for your Redemption has come!”

CAN WE SEE THIS HAPPENING NOW?

In order that one should not think these words of the Medrish are incompatible with the reality of our days, it is important to clarify what often appears in the media regarding the “King of Persia” (President of Iran) and  about the “mahdi”.

The current president of Iran since his election has declared several times in public, that the main purpose of his government is to promote the arrival of the “mahdi”, and for this purpose all military and economic resources will be given. He also said in the UN Assembly (September 25, 2007) that very soon the powerful Western countries will fall and be destroyed.

According to his belief and the belief of the radical cult that he is part of, the way to bring “the mahdi”  (the Shiite “messiah” who is supposedly, according to their distorted beliefs, going to impose the region of Islam on the whole world) is by creating a situation of chaos with local and international destruction. That is why the President of Iran says they must ignite a local war and then destroy the Western world (which in his opinion is the root of all evil) using nuclear bombs.

This threat isn’t just an ideology or idle talk. Recently there was an article in the press that Israeli Intelligence has concrete information that Iran has a secret nuclear reactor that it is producing there nuclear warheads for rockets.

As it is known today, the government of Iran is made up only from the people of this cult who believe in this “mahdi” ideology. Whoever doubts this is dismissed from the government (as was the commander of the Iranian revolutionary guards; he was removed from his position and replaced by someone loyal to the President of Iran ym”s)

Another interesting item that often appeared in the world press: astrologers see something amazing:  very soon the Western world will be destroyed by Iran by nuclear weapons (this corresponds exactly with the words of the Medrish above). To differentiate, lately there have been a few Tzaddikim in our generation who also say that soon there will be a nuclear war outside of Israel and in Eretz Yisroel will be the “selection” that was foretold in the prophesy of Zecharia (13:8) and Isaiah 6 (“v’od ba assirya etc” –see Kesubos 112b) by an earthquake, terrifying in its power, unlike anything known in the past.

In view of all this, it is clear that the words of this Medrish: “and the King of Persia returns and destroys the whole world” are very realistic and in light of ongoing world events, it is quite possible that this will actually happen in the near future.

There is also another striking event related to this in the words of our Torah Sages of 2000 years ago (in Yalkut Shimoni Shs”h 4:988) “Rabbi Barchiya said: in three hours in the future HaKadosh Baruch Hu will punish Esav and his men.”  Thus our Torah Scholars (z”l) tell us here that the destruction of the evil Kingdom of Edom will be accomplished “in three hours”.

It is very possible that a nuclear war, as mentioned above, could last only 3 hours and in that time, the evil Kingdom of Edom could be destroyed . It is known from our sages z”l [Malbim, Abarbanel etc.] that today Esav is America, the countries of Europe and the West.

NOTE: When the Medrish says “and destroys the world”, it doesn’t mean “the whole world, literally”; it means according to the Talmudic axiom “most of it is considered as all of it”. One can understand the words of the Midrash from the prophesy of Zecharia (13:8) “and there was throughout Land the words of HaShem, “two parts [of the world] will be cut off and destroyed and a third of it will remain”, which means two-thirds of the population of the world will die. Only a third will be left.

All this is regarding the nations of the world as it says in the commentaries there. However concerning Am Yisroel, chas v’shalom, the situation could be even worse if we don’t do Tshuva, as it is written in the Gemorrah (Kesubos 112b, see there). Rashi explains there “when nine parts (of Am Yisroel) will be lost and nothing will be left but a tenth”. Meaning that in the selection process that will take place before the arrival of the Moshiach, 90% of Am Yisroel will die chas v’shalom (if they don’t do tshuva) and only a tenth will survive.

WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM ALL OF THIS?

We can see that we are very likely right before a third World War, the like of which has not been known in the past, which will start because of Iran.  As we saw clearly the Prophets and Torah scholars of Israel predicted this thousands of years ago. According to their words as we explained above, the war will develop in 3 stages, one after the other:

Phase 1 – Iran threatens and provokes the king of Saudi Arabia

Phase 2 – King of Saudi Arabia goes to the countries of the West [lead by America] to get advice how to protect themselves

Phase 3 – Iran opens a nuclear war and destroys the Western world.

 (It is possible between these phases there will be only a few hours)

WHAT EACH OF US CAN DO

axixNow everyone has a last opportunity and must choose the direction in which he is headed and decide where his loyalties stand. He has to choose between the good and the bad, between life and death. He has to choose between complete loyalty to the Creator of the World and abandoning himself to the dangers of death, chas v’shalom (if he continues to act according to his desires and follow the vanities of this world).

Whoever wants to save himself, his family and more Jews, the path he should take what he should do to be saved B’Ezrat HaShem is: to accept upon himself Mitzvat Aseh of Tshuva, and make a true chesbon nefesh [accounting] as he never did before, on all his deeds until now  (as many as he can remember) and then:

1. Regret every sin that he did against the will of G-d (lo taaseh) and every sin he avoided doing, Mitzvos HaShem [mitzvat Aseh]

2.  Confess with as much tears and sorrow as possible

3. Accept upon himself that he will be faithful to the Creator, will keep all the mitzvos, keep the ways of HaShem with all his heart and not go back to his evil ways.

4. Of course, if one fails and falls again, then he must immediately get up and start anew, and also l’asok B’Torah and gmilus chassadim l’shem Shomayim, and he will be saved B’Ezrat HaShem,  and merit to greet Moshiach Tzidkaynu speedily in our time, Amen.

A date for Your Diary

The latest dooms day scenario:

ON SEPTEMBER 23  2015 SATAN WILL RECEIVE FULL REIGN OVER THE WORLD

The crazed loon department of Christianity has started up again.

Previous nonsense WRT the blood moons and general spooky stuff click here and here.

For the mean time a date for your diary:

Part of the irony of these references is that this year, September 23, 2015 is the Jewish Day of Atonement. Moreover, the blood moon tetrad has been happening on all the Jewish feasts the last 3 moons, and will fall again on 9/28/15.

The implication is that it is possible God’s wrath will be poured out on the entire earth, starting on the 23rd of September by allowing Satan to have full, unrestrained rule upon the earth (see Revelation 12:12) upon those who have not received Jesus as the atonement for their sins. In essence, those who reject Jesus will have to pay the atonement fee themselves, and that means wrath.

pope alien

The latest is that the new pope will be an alien in fact some wacky groups insist that angel/ demons will in the end impersonate space aliens. Guess who will come to the rescue and save humanity from the aliens? It will the very same shape shifting pope who is an alien!! And all to stop you from believing in Jesus and not just any Jesus but Yeshuwahah or is it Yeshyrashiwah? Apparently the spelling of this name is of vital importance to your salvation too. Imagine, salvation by spelling!!! Here is the evidence of the more believable practice of photoshoping  as opposed to shape shifting:

When Lashon Hara is a Mitzvah

Tuesday, July 14, 2015
by 

LOSHON5A while ago – I forget the details – I was telling some people about how a certain person posed a harmful influence. One person objected that this was lashon hara. When I pointed out that it was leto’eles, for public benefit, this person argued that it is still only permissible if the speaker’s motivations are pure. Since my motivations were suspect, then it was not permissible.

Now, the first observation to be made here is that Rabbi Yisrael Meir Kagan’s “Laws” of lashon hara are not “laws” in the same sense as the laws of Shabbos found in the Shulchan Aruch. A must-read on this topic is Benjamin Brown’s “From Principles to Rules and from Musar to Halakhah: The Hafetz Hayim’s Rulings on Libel and Gossip,” which you can read at this link. Furthermore, while the Chafetz Chaim’s conclusions became the standard for much of the Orthodox community, this was primarily simply due to his being the first person to systematically discuss the topic.

But what about within the parameters of the Chafetz Chaim’s framework? Is it truly forbidden to warn people of someone’s faults if one’s motivations are not pure? Surely this makes no sense – why should these other people be put in harm’s way just because of one’s own shortcomings?

If we look at the Chafetz Chaim’s discussions of this topic, an interesting discrepancy can be seen. When discussing the laws of lashon hara and cases where it is permitted in order to help others, he lists purity of intent as being an essential condition (Hilchos Lashon Hara 10:2). But later, when discussing the laws of rechilus (tale-bearing) and cases where it is permitted in order to help others (Hilchos Issurei Rechilus 9:2), while he likewise lists pureness of intent as being an essential condition, there is a footnote to his Be’er Mayim Chaim commentary. In the commentary, he notes that even if one does not have purity of intent, one must nevertheless still relate the rechilus. After all, we are discussing a case where it is in order to help others from being harmed, and there is a mitzvah of Lo Ta’amod Al Dam Re’echa, not to stand by when someone is going to be hurt. Rather, he says, when describing purity of motive as a requirement, he means that one should try as much as possible to focus on doing it for positive purposes.

Now, why did the Chafetz Chaim not make this same point in discussing cases where it is permitted to state lashon hara? I don’t know, but it seem very clear that it should equally apply. Perhaps it was simply an oversight. (Alternately, looking carefully at the Chafetz Chaim’s language in discussing lashon hara, it seems to me that he is talking about having proper motive insofar as assessing that there is a genuine chance of helping people, not in terms of one’s inner motives. If I am correct, this is something that has been lost in the ArtScroll translation.)

One who sees the Chafetz Chaim’s work as being a halachic work like the Shulchan Aruch will probably not apply this principle (that purity of motive is not an essential condition) to lashon hara, since the Chafetz Chaim didn’t mention it there. But one who sees the concept of permitted and forbidden speech as being a rational matter of creating a moral society will likewise apply this principle to cases of permitted lashon hara. If it’s a matter of stopping someone from harming others, then it doesn’t make a difference what your personal motives are (except insofar as giving reason to doubly check that it really is a matter of stopping someone from harming others).

It is extraordinary that the works of the Chafetz Chaim, intended to make the world a better place, have often been used to make the world a worse place. Sometimes it is people not giving over harmful information about a shidduch, sometimes it is people not reporting dangerous behavior in a rabbi, sometimes it is people trying to quell frank discussion about social policies. The Torah’s principles of speech are supposed to improve society. We have to use our sechel in applying them.
