I have the beginning of this copied from here. Please read until the end.
And it's also brought down in the introduction to the book "Yam Hahochma" from the Gaon Rav Y.M. Morgenshtern Shlit"a (5771):
As the new year comes upon us - the year 5771, it's proper to start off with what is brought down in the Likutei Hagr"a, which is published at the end of Sefer Emuna VeHashgaha by Rav Shemuel Milatzan Z"L, and this is what he writes:And also, the Parshiyot of Nitzavim/Vayelech hint to the fact that the century is split into 2 situations: "Nitzavim" hints to the the "Matzav" [situation] of the exile in which we are standing and anxiously waiting. "Vayelech" hints to the Redemption that we are going away from the exile. Also, Nitzavim is the portion in which Hashem promises the Future Redemption.
I heard from Harav Hagaon the Elder Moreinu Harav Yitzhak Margaliot, the Av Beit Din of Szczuczyn, Poland, who heard from the light of the diaspora Moreinu Harav Hayim Volozhin Z"L, that the Gr"a Z"L said that in the book Mishne Torah [Sefer Devarim], it is hinted in every Parsha everything that will occur in the 100 years of the sixth millennium - the 10 parshiyot correspond to the 10 centuries because Nitzavim and Vayeilech are counted as 1, as is known. [YY - see also this post.] And Moreinu Rav Hayim asked him, "Where are we hinted to in Parshat Ki Tetzei, which corresponds to the sixth century that we are currently in?" And [the Gr"a] answered him that his name is hinted to in the word "Even Shelomo" [YY - the phrase is really Even Sheleima, but has the same letters as Even Shelomo, meaning "son of Shelomo" as the Gr"a's father's name was Shlomo Zalman].And his words are based on the words of the Gr"a in his commentary on Shir Hashirim that the Torah is made of 6 books since the story of Creation is considered a book on its own. And similarly, the Rav who authored the Avodat Hakodesh wrote, "The Written Torah contains 6 ends. And also the oral Torah has 6 Sedarim corresponding to the 6 ends..." because these 2 Torot are intertwined together and are influenced by each other... And these 6 books correspond to the 6000 years of the world, and the Mishne Torah [Sefer Devarim] corresponds to the sixth millennium and contains 10 Parshiyot - each Perasha corresponds to a century. And we already said that in Parshat Nitzavim/Vayeilech, everything that is done during this century is hinted to.
that then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the peoples, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee. If any of thine that are dispersed be in the uttermost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will He fetch thee. And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and He will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers. And the LORD thy God will circumcise thy heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live. And the LORD thy God will put all these curses upon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, that persecuted thee. And thou shalt return and hearken to the voice of the LORD, and do all His commandments which I command thee this day.We found in the Zohar (Balak 212b) that in the beginning of the process of the coming of Mashiah, the day of the 25th of Elul - which is the first day of the creation of the world - will fall out on a Shabbat. And in 5771, the 25th of Elul falls out on Shabbat. This is something very rare - especially in recent years and the ones coming up. [YY - I'm not seeing the rarity that Rav Fish is seeing, as I've seen the 25th of Elul fall on Shabbat on 5750, 5753, 5757, 5764, 5767, last year in 5770, and again in 5773 and 5774. צע"ג.] And in addition, we read this Shabbat the Parshiyot of Nitzavim/Vayelech which correspond to the current century and to Redemption. And we will bring down the wording of the Zohar from its translation [from the translation into Hebrew]:
[The verse says:]"I see him, but not now" - because these things - some of them were fulfilled at that time, some of them were fulfilled at a later date, and some at the time of the King Mashiah. We learned that in the future, HKB"H will build up Yerushalayim and will show 1 set star, shining on 70 planets [?], and it shines in the middle of the heavens in 70 directions, and 70 other stars will be swallowed up into it, and it will continue to shine for 70 days. And on the sixth day, it will be seen - on the 25th of the sixth month. And on the seventh day, it will enter the end of the 70 days. On the first day, it will appear in the city of Rome, and on that day, the 3 upper walls of the city of Rome will fall, and a great palace will fall, and the ruler of that city will die. Then, that star will spread to be seen in the world. And at that time, strong wars will be awakened in the world - in all 4 directions - and faith will not be found among them. And in the middle of the world, when that star will shine in the middle of the sky, a great king will arise and rule world, and he will be arrogant over the other rulers, and he will initiate wars on two sides, and he will overcome them. And on the day that the star will be create, the Holy Land will shake 45 miles around the place where the Beit Hamikdash was, and an underground cave will be revealed. And from that cave, a strong fire will emerge to burn the world. And from that cave, a great, supreme bird will grow that will rule over the whole world, and the rulership will be given to him. And supreme holy ones will gather to him, and then, the King Mashiah will be revealed in the entire world, and the rulership will be given to him. And the people of the world - at the time that he will be revealed - will be caught up in trouble after trouble and the enemies of Israel will become stronger. Then, the spirit of Mashiah will be awakened upon them, and will cut off the wicked Edom and the entire Land of Se'ir, he will burn with fire. [For] then, it is written "while Israel doeth valiantly". That is what is meant with what is written, "And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also, even his enemies, shall be a possession" - the enemies of Israel.
And I also heard that there is a call up of reserves in the army in the Land of Israel for all soldiers this coming Thursday. From the beginning, they decided to call them up for one day to avoid confusion and they will later decide if they are necessary to continue.
And on Friday, the Palestinians are expected to announce their state in the UN at a time when it's already Shabbat in the Land of Israel. The implication of this announcement is a declaration of war. All these things are not simple at all when Turkey and Egypt are already in a state of declaration of war. In addition, I heard that Gedolei Yisrael, Maranan VeRabanan, Hagaon Rav Elyashiv Shlit"a, Hagaon Rav Shteinman Shlit"a, and Hagaon Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shlit"a expressed to those close to them that they are very very concerned about the upcoming Shabbat. All this I heard from someone who is very close to one of the aforementioned Gedolim. And he added that the loss of conciousness that happened to Rav Elyashiv this past Friday is related to this matter. (And Baruch Hashem, he returned to normal.) And it was also publicized in the newspapers at the end of last week in that name of Rav Shteinman Shlit"a that there is a dangerous situation for Am Yisrael and we need to pray.
And I also heard in the name of the Gerrer Rebbe (the source is unconfirmed) that he instructed many of his followers not to prepare yet where they will celebrate the upcoming Rosh Hashana until next week. And I also heard a few weeks ago from one of the great Mekubalim Shlit"a that it's worth storing water and food (but mainly water) because power shortages are expected, which can cause problems in providing water.
Even though it is not our normal way at all to write things similar to this, since they are coming from multiple sources which are mostly reliable, we need to be concerned, and we hope that we're proven wrong and we will merit a complete sweetening [of judgements] so that everything will be with mercy. And the main thing of the main thing is: we need to increase - during these upcoming days - learning the Zohar and the inner secrets of the Torah because through doing so, Ribbi Shimon Bar Yohai promised that it sweetens the Redemption process that it should come with mercy. And we should all merit to be written and sealed for a good, sweet new year, a year of Redemption and salvation with simple mercy.
