The Case for a 5772-Based Geula - Part 5
Updates from version 2 in red.
Continued from Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4
Here, the Zohar is speaking of the 2 periods of 6.5 years each, that according to the "Yam HaHochma", the purpose of these periods is to connect Mashiah Ben Yosef and Mashiah Ben David, with the proliferation of the learning of the inner secrets of the Torah, and the abundance of Torah-learners everywhere in the Sod of "Tzemah David". Similarly, the Zohar notes that close to the end of the 72 years, the nations of the world will be energized against Yerushalayim, and it will be "and it is a time of trouble unto Jacob, but out of it shall he be saved," that which unfortunately, we already see in our days that the United States is going against Yerushalayim. And also the President of the United States Obama [אובאמה] is hinted to in the verse (Yehezkel 38:2): "בֶּן-אָדָם, שִׂים פָּנֶיךָ אֶל-גּוֹג אֶרֶץ הַמָּגוֹג--נְשִׂיא, רֹאשׁ מֶשֶׁךְ וְתֻבָל; וְהִנָּבֵא, עָלָיו. וְאָמַרְתָּ, כֹּה אָמַר אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה" ['Son of man, set thy face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say: Thus saith the Lord GOD...] with a 7-letter skip. [YY - See Yehudi Yerushalmi and Shirat Devorah as examples where this was mentioned previously.] And also Magog, the land of Gog, in gematria is 52, which equals the number of states in the United States [YY - I'll assume the author is including Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia, but this is a bit far-fetched. צ"ע.] And also, his [Obama's] name is hinted to in the Rashei Teivot in the verse that hints to the root of the Kelipa of the entire world, as is known: (Bereishit 36:31) וְאֵלֶּה, הַמְּלָכִים, אֲשֶׁר מָלְכוּ, בְּאֶרֶץ אֱדוֹם--לִפְנֵי מְלָךְ-מֶלֶךְ, לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל ["And these are the kings that reigned in the land of Edom, before there reigned any king over the children of Israel."]
Here, the Zohar speaks about the 27 years until the end of the century, that in the 73rd year, the war against Yerushalayim will begin, and HKB"H will rain down great hailstones upon the nations of the world, and the period of Mashiah Ben David will begin - that he will be energized to fight the wars of Hashem, and these wars will last 27 years until the end of the century, and then will be the complete unification [of Hashem's Name] and the complete ingathering of the exiles. (And similarly, גוג ומגוג [Gog Umagog] in gematria, adding the 2 words and the Kollel is 73. And also, the number 3, represented by the letter ג, stands out in the words גוג ומגוג [Gog Umagog]. And also, the verse וְהָיְתָה גְּאֻלָּתוֹ, עַד-תֹּם שְׁנַת ["then he may redeem it within a whole year after..." is Rashei Teivot תשע"ג [i.e. 5773]. And also, the verse that the "Targum Yonatan" explains is referring to Gog Umagog (Devarim 32:39) רְאוּ עַתָּה, כִּי אֲנִי אֲנִי הוּא, וְאֵין אֱלֹהִים, עִמָּדִי ["See now that I, even I, am He, and there is no god with Me..."] has the gematria of 773. And also the verse (Tehillim 148:13) כִּי-נִשְׂגָּב שְׁמוֹ לְבַדּוֹ [for His name alone is exalted] is the same gematria. And also, the text of the prayer הוא יגאל אותנו בקרוב is the same gematria.
And also, in the year 5772, we will have completed 3323 years from the Redemption from Egypt and the giving of the Torah, and this number is the gematria of the verse that is said in the prophecy of Yehezkel about Gog Umagog (Yehezkel 38:23) וְהִתְגַּדִּלְתִּי, וְהִתְקַדִּשְׁתִּי, וְנוֹדַעְתִּי, לְעֵינֵי גּוֹיִם רַבִּים; וְיָדְעוּ, כִּי-אֲנִי יְהוָה [Thus will I magnify Myself, and sanctify Myself, and I will make Myself known in the eyes of many nations; and they shall know that I am the LORD.] [YY - note that I mentioned this a couple months ago here, so unless it was taken from my blog, Baruch Shekivanti.] And when you add one, which hints to another year, we get the gematria of the verse that talks about the first journey of the Redemption from Egypt: (Bemidbar 33:1) אֵלֶּה מַסְעֵי בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֲשֶׁר יָצְאוּ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם--לְצִבְאֹתָם: בְּיַד-מֹשֶׁה, וְאַהֲרֹן [These are the stages of the children of Israel, by which they went forth out of the land of Egypt by their hosts under the hand of Moses and Aaron.].
It is written (Vayikra 25:28) וְאִם לֹא-מָצְאָה יָדוֹ, דֵּי הָשִׁיב לוֹ--וְהָיָה מִמְכָּרוֹ בְּיַד הַקֹּנֶה אֹתוֹ, עַד שְׁנַת הַיּוֹבֵל; וְיָצָא, בַּיֹּבֵל, וְשָׁב, לַאֲחֻזָּתוֹ. [But if he have not sufficient means to get it back for himself, then that which he hath sold shall remain in the hand of him that hath bought it until the year of jubilee; and in the jubilee it shall go out, and he shall return unto his possession.] And the Or Hahayim explains [YY - see also here]:
"But if he have not sufficient means to get it back for himself" means: if the Master will see that the nation does not have power to bear any more blows, and their debts are mounting over their heads, and they do not have the power to withstand this, "then that which he hath sold ... until the year of jubilee", which is the time limit for a Be'itah Redemption, and then, "and in the jubilee it shall go out, and he shall return unto his possession" - because the Keitz of the Redemption will happen even if Israel is full of complete evil-doers, G-d forbid.And I heard in the name of Harav Hagaon Rav Mordechai Elyashar Shlit"a that also this verse in gematria plus the words is 3323. And also, "וְשָׁב לַאֲחֻזָּתוֹ" [and he shall return unto his possession] in gematria is 771 with the words plus the letters.
And it is similarly brought down in the commentary of the Ramban on Shir Hashirim (8:2 [8:12?], brought down in the Writings of the Ramban, vol. 2, published by Mosad Harav Kook)
"O Solomon, shalt have the thousand" - he hints with this to the Days of the Mashiah, which will last 1000 years - that is the sixth millennium from the years of the world. "And two hundred" of these 1000 "to those that keep the fruit thereof" - to those that wait for the reward of Torah and Mitzvot - in other words, there will be Resurrection of the Dead in the sixth millennium before 200 years, and the Redemption and Salvation will be revealed.We see that the Ramban learned from the verse "and those that keep the fruit thereof two hundred" that at least 200 years from the sixth millennium will be a period of reward which will come after the conclusion of the Redemption processes. And if the period of a Be'itah Redemption is 100 years, as we brought from the Zohar, it therefore started in the year 5701.
