Geula Update from Rav Berger - Naso 5775
My translation of Rav Berger's latest:
The hidden Tzaddikim: There was a great sweetening in Heaven for Am Yisrael, but nevertheless, we must strengthen ourselves in saying Keri'at Shema with intent in order to cancel all the decrees on all fronts!
The author said: The merit has fallen in my portion to bring here the words of the hidden Tzaddikim, as was brought here in the past weeks and caused a mass strengthening among the myriads of Am Yisrael. And we are continuing to bring down their words. As you can recall (in the newsletter for Parshat Emor), we first brought down their words about there being a decree that is not good hanging over Am Yisrael, and after the holiday of Shavu'ot, a period that will not be easy will begin. They requested then to alarm and awaken Am Yisrael to say Keri'at Shema with great intent, which has the power to sweeten judgments and cancel all types of decrees, and even, with its power, we will merit to be redeemed soon with kindness and great mercy.
This week they requested to transmit an additional message:
Indeed there is a great sweetening in Heaven for Am Yisrael, but nevertheless, we must strengthen ourselves in saying Keri'at Shema with intent in order to cancel all the decrees on all fronts!They even continued to reveal and say that that rocket that fell this week (for the first time since Tzuk Eitan) in the city of Ashdod and caused great panic was a message from Heaven to show us what would have been here... but since Am Yisrael started strengthening themselves by saying Keri'at Shema with greater intent, the judgments were sweetened. However, they plead and request from Am Yisrael:
We still need great mercy, so do not let up. Continue to say Keri'at Shema with intent. HKB"H is joyous and happy with His children who coronate Him over them and unify His name with love and pure faith. HKB"H sees that His children lean and rely only upon Him, and in such, He shines His face toward us and guards us from all harm and pain. And in such, He will even redeem us soon with mercy and great kindness, for this is the secret of Teshuva of the End of Days!
[At this point, Rav Berger brings further proofs how reciting Keri'at Shema with intent is related to the Redemption. I will not translate them. See it in Hebrew in the original. Rav Berger continues:]
And to conclude the matter, I will write: You should know that all the signs that we are Mamash close to our Redemption are already Mamash revealed and seen. Also, all the Endtimes and calculations that the Tzaddikim of earlier generations wrote, like the Gr"a, the Ba'al Hatanya, the Hafetz Hayim ZY"A, they were all said about this year. Even the Tzaddikim and Gedolei Yisrael who are living with us are nowadays returning and saying that Mashiah Tzidkeinu is Mamash about to redeem us. And therefore, we need to be happy "for it is time to be gracious unto her, for the appointed time is come", but we need to remember at this time that it is forbidden for us to waste this time which is auspicious for redemption - for there were already endtimes in the past that the Gedolim of the generations gave, and unfortunately, they passed as if they never were. Why? The Tzaddikim and Gedolim of the generations explained: because Am Yisrael didn't do true Teshuva. And it was correct that those times were auspicious for Redemption, but Am Yisrael didn't do its job, and therefore, those times which were auspicious for our Redemption passed as if they never were.
For Haza"l already revealed to us the secret and it was Halachicly decided in the Rambam: "Israel will only be redeemed with Teshuva." In other words, it is correct that these times are auspicious for Redemption, but this will not occur without us doing our jobs. And that is one thing: Teshuva and connecting to the King of the universe, our beloved King.
Come, let us take these words to heart and not waste the chance!
