More From Rav Arush: All-Out War Before Rosh Hashana
R' Lazer Brody posts on his blog that Rav Shalom Arush's Rav, R' Yehuda Zev Leibowitz, ZT"L, came to Rav Arush in a dream, saying that a heavenly decree has been issued that all-out war will break out in the next 3 weeks.
R' Brody continues:
But, don't be afraid. Hashem does love us and wants to be with us. But, we must be worthy of the Divine Presence. Rav Shalom told me that every single Jew must begin doing serious teshuva and self-assessment while begging Hashem to delay this harsh decree. I asked Rav Shalom, "Why pray for a delay? Why not pray for a total cancellation?" Rav Shalom said the delay is to allow more people to make teshuva. A cancellation is almost impossible, because it's part of Hashem's plan to bring Moshiach, in the nearest future. Once Moshiach comes, teshuva will be worthless. Today, teshuva is still worth it's weight in diamonds. But time is running out super-fast.R' Brody calls it "Nineveh 2011", and advocates Hitbodedut - speaking to Hashem alone - as a way to pray for its delay.
I'll add that whatever form of Teshuva we do, this is the time of year to do it, this is the time in your life to do it, and this is the time in history to do it. Let us return to Him even more than was done in the days of Nineveh and King Yoshiayu. The time to do so is now.
In that merit, may Hashem save us in such a war.
