4th Anniversary of R' Ovadia's Mashiah Dream

In honor of the 4th anniversary of Rav Ovadia Yosef's dream about Mashiah, I will bring you the details from ynet's Hebrew site (my translation):

The spiritual leader of Shas reported to those close to him emotionally that he saw the Mashiah coming to the Kotel and announcing: "I want that all the Avrechim (Kollel members) should be recruited to teach Torah." Rav Ovadia told over that in the dream "In all of Jerusalem, there were only Jews והמבין יבין. And all strangers that were not Jewish were not [there], and were already expelled from Israel." Rav Ben-Tzion Mutzafi, one of the important rabbis in Shas: "This shows that the redemption is really close."

by Avishai Ben Haim

First report: There is a Messianic fervor and spiritual upheaval in Shas, following the occurance that the movement's spiritual leader, Rav Ovadia Yosef, told over - that last Friday night, Mashiah was revealed to him in a dream. Rav Ovadia told over the Messianic dream when he brought up the matter at the wedding of one of his grandchildren, which took place 2 days ago (Monday) in the evening. Rav Ovadia told over that he saw Mashiah in a dream reaching the Kotel and saying "I want that all Avrechim should be recruited (to teach Torah).

Rav Ovadia spoke very emotionally and said, "On Friday night, I saw in a dream that the Mashiah came to the Kotel, and in the plaza, it was filled with people. The Mashiah told them, 'Gentlemen, I have now come. There are a million students who don't learn Torah - they learn in secular schools. I want all the Avrechim to be recruited. מי לה' אלי - so that there should be teachers to teach them Torah. There should not be one school left that there will be no Torah in it - all of them should be learning Torah.' " After he quoted the words of the Mashiah in the dream, the rabbi concluded with the words ,"And I heard all this in a dream until I awakened." Following the impression that the dream left, Rav Ovadia organized a special gathering that will take place next Sunday in the Porat Yosef Yeshiva in Jerusalem.

And all strangers that were not Jewish were not [there], and were already expelled

The story of Rav Ovadia's dream spread rapidly, and merited various explanations [unknown translation]. Rav Ben-Tzion Mutzafi, one of the closest rabbis to Rav Ovadia Yosef, said about Rav Ovadia's dream that, "We didn't hear about anyone that merited to see the King Mashiah in a dream, and if a man like Rav Ovadia Yosef, of whom the Shechina speaks from his throat, merits to see the King Mashiah, this shows that the redemption is really close."

Rav Mutzafi was called yesterday to the rabbi's home, and he told over the full details of Rav Ovadia's meeting with the King Mashiah to the pirate radio station "Shuva Yisrael". Rav Mutzafi told over that Rav Ovadia described for him that "he saw the King Mashiah found at the Kotel". The spiritual leader of Shas refused to describe to Mutzafi what Mashiah looked like, but said, "They told me that this is the King Mashiah, and it looked as if this was the King Mashiah, and the Kotel was packed with many thousands of people, but not just the Kotel, rather in all of Jerusalem, there were only Jews, והמבין יבין. And all strangers that were not Jewish were not [there], and were already expelled from Israel."

Rav Mutzafi continued to detail what Rav Ovadia described to him: "I saw the whole area from the Kotel until the Jordan River full of Jews that came from the ingathering of the exiles, from the resurrection of the dead, and from all places - millions and millions of Jews. The entire area was filled with only Jews, and there were no non-Jews left...and they told me that from now, there will be no more wars, there will be peace in the world, it will be quiet, and the King Mashiah has already been ruling."

Rav Ovadia continued to describe to Rav Mutzafi that "there was a flag of the King Mashiah, and upon it, it was written 'רוח אפיו ימית רשע' [I don't know if this really supposed to be וּבְרוּחַ שְׂפָתָיו יָמִית רָשָׁע or not - YY]. He added details about his conversation with the King Mashiah: "I asked him, the Mashiah: 'Why don't you reveal yourself already? Look, we are suffering, and we're all in pain.' The King Mashiah answered me in these words: 'Because there are a million Jewish children who do not say the Shema Yisrael every day - because of this, I have not come. Go tell all single Yeshiva students and Avrechim to go out and bring people closer to Avodat Hashem.' "


This was the main part of the article. If there's interest, I'll translate the rest of the article as well.

I calculated it to be the 2nd of Tamuz, 5751. Ok, it's not really the anniversary, but it's between the English anniversary and the Hebrew one. It's interesting that this year, 2 Tamuz also falls out on Friday night as it did 4 years ago.
Thanks for pointing out the new R' Dov Bar Leib post.

The article indicates that it was published 27.06.01 (June 27). That was the 6th of Tammuz, a Wednesday. If the dream occurred the previous Shabbos, it occurred on 2 Tammuz. "Erev..."

It's possible, but more likely meant to be the Pasuk from Yeshaya 11:4, which is talking about Mashiah.

The temple MOunt built by Ibrahim is in Mounts of Makkah, the 8(square)!
Golden RAtio set by none but A1GOD of Ibrahim points to Hamikdash location! The first Temple stands tall and mankind rushes to it!
The right hand spin = countercloskwise spin, Hamikdash temple has ritual of 7 circles around the cube(8) , a ritual set by Ibrahim, and it is counterclockwsie(18), right handed spin!
All planets stars glalxies and our earth and moon follow r18ht hand spin, law of right hand!
Magnet and Electric current obey r18ht hand spin!
All hearts pump blood only r18ht haded spin!
All snail shells we find are designed r18ht handedly, not one left handed!
All plants come to life splitting of seed occurs only with right half (hand) of seed rising to sky rotating sight handed spin, and left part of seed always a root!
There is no left hand in creation, the right hand of Lord of all creation is mighty and the right hand of Lord created and measured heavnes and earth with the palm of H1S r18ht hand(golden ratio's 18) as well has spinned all tings to life using right hand only!
There is no law but A1law so there is no GOd but A1GOD!

Amidah is 18

Covenant is made with the right hand, all right hands display 18(1/\) only

What is wrong with the man?

Though it is wrong to predict dates and not allowed but we find the prediction of Moses's coming was made accurately by those who communicate with spirits which is forbidden! And they done it again and the killing is again on the rise for the suspected Mashiach just as it was for Moses!
