New Be'Itah Date?
The Tsunami Kabbalist, in his latest Shiur, spoke of תש"ע - or 5770 - as the "'Year of Redemption' as before that year, there will be upheavals in the world". Hashem1.net was quick to point out in his footnote that this refers to the "Be'Itah" date of Redemption - referring to the set time for it to occur. The rabbi talked a year and a half ago about Mashiah appearing in 5769, which is Motza'ei Shevi'it (the year after the Shemitta year). However, that year will involve upheavals in the world, so the first year of peace without troubles will be 5770.
Of course, in the right spiritual climate, Mashiah can appear any day beforehand.
