Heshbonot HaGe'ula

I was browsing some Mashiah forums in Hebrew, and I came across this forum which 1 forum participant linked to the book called חשבונות הגאולה. This book, written by חיים שבילי in תשכ"ד (the year 1964), is a fascinating read. It details how the Ge'ula will occur in his vision - in 1964 terms.

Although most of his predictions didn't occur at the time that he predicted, these predictions still have much relevance to today, I believe.

Here is a link to download the original PDF in Hebrew.

Here's a translation of the relevant Table of Contents (excluding the final section that talks about the age of the universe):

1. Introduction
2. Preface
3. The 6 calculations in Daniel

11. The calculation of "זמן ועידן" reaches 5728 - a world-wide nuclear war in the years 5728-5730?

The author claims that our year count is wrong by some 200 years but yet Hashgacha Elyona goes acording to what is generally accepted. With all respect, this would seems to be "kvetch" without good reason. Instead of pushing up the future, one can push down history. That changes historical dates brought by Seder Olam, but if we can change its dates for Bayit Sheni, why not also for earlier periods? Just say that Churban Bayit Rishon was in 3175. I humbly submit that I have shown that it is possible to leave our year count intact, as well as the כתית principle, and be in conformance with known historical data, and to give a compelling, in my view, rational for why we say that our count is מבריאת העולם when it is not true, and understand the Zoharic model of time, and more.

You mean this, right? I applaud your efforts in this.

That is a start, with this addendum. About these matters I have written much more, though, B'Chasdei HaShem.
