Geula Update from Rav Fish - Bereishit 5773
From Rav Fish's latest:
- אמריקה is the gematria of פרעה (+ the Kollel), who is the head of the 70 nations. Obama looks like פרעה in the pyramids.
- Obama's name is hinted to many times in the following verses (Zecharia 14:3-4):
וְיָצָא יְהוָה, וְנִלְחַם בַּגּוֹיִם הָהֵם, כְּיוֹם הִלָּחֲמוֹ, בְּיוֹם קְרָב וְעָמְדוּ רַגְלָיו בַּיּוֹם-הַהוּא עַל-הַר הַזֵּיתִים אֲשֶׁר עַל-פְּנֵי יְרוּשָׁלִַם, מִקֶּדֶםקרב has the letters ברק, the word אשר is the gematria of ברק חוסיין אובאמה, and the last 3 letters of the word מקדם are the gematria of חוסיין.
- אירן (Iran) is the Rashei Teivot of part of a verse dealing with Mashiah Ben Yosef:
הֲבֵן יַקִּיר לִי אֶפְרַיִם, אִם יֶלֶד שַׁעֲשֻׁעִים--כִּי-מִדֵּי דַבְּרִי בּוֹ, זָכֹר אֶזְכְּרֶנּוּ עוֹד; עַל-כֵּן, הָמוּ מֵעַי לוֹ--רַחֵם אֲרַחֲמֶנּוּ, נְאֻם-יְהוָהRav Shlomo Reiskin adds that Iran also is hinted to in verses having to do with Yosef's authority over the nations:וַיֹּאמֶר פַּרְעֹה, אֶל-יוֹסֵף: רְאֵה נָתַתִּי אֹתְךָ, עַל כָּל-אֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם
וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה, אֶל-יְהוֹשֻׁעַ, רְאֵה נָתַתִּי בְיָדְךָ, אֶת-יְרִיחוֹ וְאֶת-מַלְכָּהּ--גִּבּוֹרֵי, הֶחָיִל
- It's brought down in the Netivot Halevi [YY- he probably means Netivot Raboteinu LeBeit Halevi Brisk] p. 258 that Rav Meir Soloveitchik Shlit"a [YY - the one in the center of this family tree - not the one on the far right of the family tree whom I quoted recently] asked his father the Brisker Rav about the 70 years of Hevlei Mashiah and his father replied that we are already in the middle of them. [YY - the Brisker Rav died in 1959.]
- The Arab Spring began in Nissan, 5771, which began the 2 years of the "birth of Mashiah" according to the latest viewpoint. And we already brought down from the Shomrei Emunim Rebbe ZT"L who considered the Arab Spring to actually be works of Mashiah coming. And I also heard from one of the Mekubalim Shlit"a who said that in Nissan, 5771, when the Arab Spring began, we need to wait 2 years in order to see the actual Redemption.
- Rav Gamliel Rabinowitz Shlit"a adds that the following phrase of the verse in Psalm 83 that deals with Gog Umagog has the gematria of אירן (Iran):כִּי-הִנֵּה אוֹיְבֶיךָ, יֶהֱמָיוּן
- The nuclear power plant Bushehr (בושהר) should turn to good news בשורה in the form of קול מבשר מבשר ואומר.
- It's brought down in the Sefer Hapeliah [YY - I couldn't find it here. Can someone find it?] that the Xtians have a belief about the "End of the World" and according to the Sefer Hapeliah, this belief is their real end of the world and a time of Redemption for Kelal Yisrael.
- Rav Shlomo Reiskin Shlit"a adds that ניו יורק (New York) is hinted to in a 15-letter skip in these verses in Yehezkel:וְלֹא-תָחוֹס עֵינִי עָלַיִךְ, וְלֹא אֶחְמוֹל: כִּי דְרָכַיִךְ עָלַיִךְ אֶתֵּן, וְתוֹעֲבוֹתַיִךְ בְּתוֹכֵךְ תִּהְיֶיןָ, וִידַעְתֶּם, כִּי-אֲנִי יְהוָה
כֹּה אָמַר, אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה: רָעָה אַחַת רָעָה, הִנֵּה בָאָה
קֵץ בָּא, בָּא הַקֵּץ הֵקִיץ אֵלָיִךְ; הִנֵּה, בָּאָה
- And I also heard that every year, Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shlit"a wishes his Shofar blower, "I'll see you next year!" This year, however, he said, "I'll see you next year in the Beit Hamikdash!"
- The Targum on the verse in Kohelet רָחוֹק, מַה-שֶּׁהָיָה; וְעָמֹק עָמֹק, מִי יִמְצָאֶנּוּ says [translated]: "It is already far off for people to know all that occurred from the days of the [Creation of the?] world, the secret of the day of death, and the secret of the day that the King Mashiah will come." Rav Yosef Sheinberger made an inference to say that only the exact day is not known, but the approximate year is possible to know. [YY - See also Pesahim 54b where one can have further discussion about this.]
