Rome on Rosh Hodesh Nissan, '73

A few weeks ago, I quoted the Zohar Vayera 119a:

בְּשַׁבְעִין וּתְלָת, כָּל מַלְכֵי עָלְמָא יִתְכַּנְּשׁוּן לְגוֹ קַרְתָּא רַבְּתָא דְּרוֹמִי, וְקֻדְשָׁא בְּרִיךְ הוּא יִתְעַר עָלַיְהוּ אֶשָּׂא וּבַרְדָּא וְאַבְנֵי אֶלְגָּבִישׁ וְיִתְאַבְּדוּן מֵעָלְמָא

In '73, all the kings [i.e., people in positions of power] of the world will gather into the great city of Rome, and the Holy One, blessed be He will arouse upon them fire, hail, and stones of Elgavish, and they will be destroyed from the world.
...which, as the Zohar continues, is followed by the appearance of Mashiah in the world.

Today, Rosh Hodesh Nissan, 5773:

Conclave to elect new Pope begins in Rome
The 115 cardinals tasked with electing a new pope have been locked in the Sistine Chapel, marking the start of conclave in Rome on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, in another sign of bad news for Edom:

Number of dead pigs pulled from China river now nearly 6,000


See Rabbeinu Tam in Rosh Hashana 27a, s.v. כמאן מצלינן to see why the date of Rosh Hodesh Nissan is significant.  Alternatively, בשבעין ותלת implies smack in the middle of the year, which is Rosh Hodesh Nissan.

בניסן נגאלו ובניסן עתידין להגאל

Do we know what Elgavish means?

When that meteor fell in Russia I thought of this prophecy. Very interesting indeed.

We know that in nissan there is a 50/50 chance of Moshiach coming. BH may it happen this pesach.

Is a cardinal in the Catholic Church really the same as a king? Seems like a stretch to me. If Benedict had died, then there would have been many world leaders in Rome, but he merely resigned.

Devorah,

See Yehezkel 38:22.

John,

Yes, it's a bit of a stretch, but considering the dearth of true monarchs in our day, this might be the closest thing.

There is a headline right now in Haaretz that Obama might have to cut his trip here short to go to the coronation of the new Pope, which is expected late next week. Many world leaders are expected to attend.

Amazing!

It would be too funny if it happened.
Obama wont know what hit him.
Rome is about to get wiped out. LOL

The meteoric stones in Rome at Cardinal BerGogLio's coronation next week. Very amusing. But first Obama has to drive past Sirhan Sirhan's house between Pisgat Ze'ev and Ramallah. He has to wave at his adoring fans as they line the Hwy via Geva Binyamin.

I cant believe that this might actually happen.

"There will be up to 2,000 delegates from more than 100 countries: Princes of Wales,Barack Obama,Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, Francois Hollande, the French president and King Juan Carlos of Spain.

WOW !!!!

Re. Goy Kadosh: It would be too funny if it happened.

Well since it says in tehillim[psalm] 2 and tehillim 59 that in the end Hashem will laugh of the [goy] nations, expect somekind of Divine joke.

The cookers will be cooked in their own....

Say in advance Thank You Hashem and more jokes will come.

Ya'ak: This post is being spammed to death. How did it become a target?

I know. No idea, but it's not the only one. Even posts with 0 comments have become spam targets, so I don't know if there's any rhyme or reason for which posts spammers target - it's probably random.
