The Case for a 5772-Based Geula - Part 6
Updates from version 2 in red.
Continued from Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5
I happened to receive a more updated version of the pdf with additions. BL"N, I'll post the additions in a separate post when I'm done with the original.
And it is also brought down in the name of the Rosh Yeshiva of Mir - the Gaon Rav Eliezer Yehuda Finkel ZT"L, brought down in the introduction of the book "Tomer Devorah" that was printed in Shanghai in 5705 - that in the year 5700, when the Holocaust broke out, the period of a Be'itah Redemption began. Something similar to this is brought down in the name of the Kloisenberger Rebbe ZT"L (in the newsletter "Betzila DeMeHamnuta" Tzanz - Emor, 5770) that with the Holocaust started the time of Be'itah. And it is also brought down there in the name of the "Toledot Yaakov Yosef", Parshat Ki Tisa, that the year 5701 is a year of a Keitz. And it is also brought down there in the name of the Toldos Aharon Rebbe ZT"L that after the Holocaust, it doesn't count as a "time" per se - it is just a delay to rectify a few matters, just like the 7 days of [delay for the Shiva of] Metushelah before the Flood.
And it is similarly brought down in the book "Leket Reshimot" from the Mashgiah of Lakewood [Yeshiva] - Rav Nosson Wachtfogel ZT"L (in the section dealing with the Beit Hamikdash) in the name of Rav Aharon Kotler ZT"L that in the time of World War I, there were a few people who asked the Hafetz Hayim if this is Gog Umagog, and he answered all of them that after this war, there will be a break, and afterwards, there will be another war, and there again will be a break, and afterwards, there will be another war, and with that war will come Mashiah. (These words are also brought in the book "Lev Eliyahu" - the end of volume 1, from the Gaon Rav Eliyahu Lopian ZT"L in the name of the Gaon Rav Elhanan Wasserman HY"D who heard it from the Hafetz Hayim, and it is written there that the Hafetz Hayim said that Gog Umagog War itself will be divided into 3 wars. And this is according to the known fact that the Germans YM"S wanted to go up to Yerushalayim. And similarly Harav Hagaon R' Menahem Rotenberg showed me that the Targum Yerushalmi and the Targum Yonatan (on Bereishit 10:2) translate "Magog" as "Germania". And similarly, it's brought down in the Tiferet Yisrael (Nega'im 2:1):
"Germanyan is Ashkenaz because of the 3 children of No'ah, the children of Yefet settled in the North of the world, which is Europe, and Ashkenaz (Germany) is the Northernmost part of it.And even though it is mentioned in the gemara (Megilla 6b) that Germania is Edom from the descendants of Amalek, it's possible that the land was Magog from the children of Yefet and Amalekites settled there - since Edom represents the left and he is drawn to the leftmost place in the world, as is brought down in the Tiferet Yisrael ibid.
And similarly, it is brought down in the Malbim (on Yehezkel 38:2):
Yehezkel prophesied that at the End of Days, all the nations will fight around Yerushalayim, and the combatants on one side will be Egypt, Assyria, and Eilam [aka Persia] who are the Yishmaelites, and the combatants on the other side will be Meshech, Tuval, the princes of Edom, and the kings of the North. And they will all kill each other and will fall among the fallen. And Haza"l had a tradition that Gog will come against Yerushalayim three times.And look at the Malbim (on Daniel 7) who explains the Keitz of Daniel to be referring to the year 5673, which was the eve of World War I.)
And similarly, it is brought in the book "Leket Reshimot" ibid that he has a tradition - man from man - from R' Yehoshua Leib Diskin ZT"L that in the last war before the coming of Mashiah, all the Jews who tremble to Hashem's word, who are separated from the other nations - will be saved.
And this is the wording of the Leshem (Introductions and Prefaces p. 106):
The measurement of the Atara on the Yesod is known to all who taste the taste of the Tree of Life, and it is also long time period, and that entire time is all the Keitz of Be'itah. This is the simple meaning of the verse, "I the LORD will hasten it in its time." The verse is promising that it will not last the entire time of Be'itah, but rather that Hashem will expedite the time of Redemption, so both ideas will be fulfilled - in its time, I will hasten it. And this is also what is said, "because it will surely come, it will not delay" - that it will not delay until the end of the entire period of Be'itah, G-d forbid, but rather, there will be an "I will hasten it" also. However, all this is only when the Atara will reach its lowering.It appears that the Leshem is hinting to the "lowering" of the day, when the shadow bends toward the West - after 6.5 hours, as we brought earlier from the Zohar on the end of Tamuz, 5771. And it's also brought down in the Leshem (Introductions and Prefaces pp. 88-89) that the time period until the Atara reaches its lowering is the time period of Mashiah Ben Yosef, and when the Atara reaches its lowering, the time period of Mashiah Ben David begins.
