Geula Update from Rav Fish - Hukat 5772
From Rav Fish's latest:
- Rav Yonatan G. adds that the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is hinted to in Pirkei DeRibbi Eliezer (chapter 30):
There are 15 things that the children of Yishmael will do in the land in the End of Days. ... And 2 brothers will cause to rise up Nesi'im [princes/presidents] in the end, and in their days will rise Tzemah Ben David.
- It's known that many of the students of Maggid of Mezritch ZY"A gathered together in a project to hasten the coming of the Mashiah in the years 5572-5575, and they died in the year 5575. They were: the Maggid of Kozhnitz, Rav Menahem Mendel of Rimnov, and the Hozeh of Lublin. And just as in our days, we explained according to Haza"l that the time of the coming of Mashiah and the War of Gog Umagog are a process from the end of the year 5772 until the year 5775, similarly in their time, the war of Napoleon against Alexander of Russia broke out on Tammuz 14, 5572 and lasted until Sivan 10, 5575. And all these years, Rav Menahem Mendel of Rimnov ZYA"A and other Gedolim tried to turn the war into the Gog Umagog War to hasten the Redemption. This was because these years that came after the year 5500, which was the morning of the sixth millennium, was an auspicious time for the Redemption. And Rav Moshe Levinger Shlit"a adds that יו"ד דל"ת בתמוז has the gematria of מלך המשיח [which is 453 + the Kollel = 454]. Also חודש תמוז has the gematria of 772 [which is 771 + the Kollel].
- I heard in the name of the Kabbalist Rav Nahmani ZT"L that the Targum Yonatan on Eldad & Medad [see also here] mentions there the words קיריס איטימוס which hints to a כור אטומי [nuclear reactor] which will have a part in the Gog Umagog War.
- The expression דוד בן ישי appears only twice in Tanach. Once in Psalm 72 that was mentioned. The second instance appears in the verse (Shemuel Bet 23:1) וְאֵלֶּה דִּבְרֵי דָוִד, הָאַחֲרֹנִים: נְאֻם דָּוִד בֶּן-יִשַׁי "Now these are the last words of David: The saying of David the son of Jesse". And we again see that David uses his name דוד בן ישי when he is speaking about the Keitz and end - "the last words of David". And 2x the gematria of דוד בן ישי is 772.
