Mishkoltz Rebbe: The Gog Umagog War Has Been Moved to Syria

In Rav Fish's latest (p. 9), he quotes the following from the Mishkoltz Rebbe Shlit"a (my translation):
At a tish at the end of the holiday of Simhat Torah, the honorable holy Maran Rebbe of Mishkoltz Shlit"a spoke forcefully about world events: "Whoever merely tries to look truthfully at what is going on around us understands that HKB"H is bringing us toward the revelation of the King Mashiah and toward our Redemption and the redemption of our souls.

"This winter," continued the Rebbe, " there will continue to be uprisings throughout the world - and everything is for Israel's benefit!

"My heart tells me," concluded the Rebbe, "that HKB"H is having mercy on Am Yisrael and despite what the prophets have prophesied - that the Gog Umagog War needs to be within Yerushalayim - nevertheless HKB"H sweetened this and He is currently making it in Syria. And the proof is that it is brought down in Haza"l (Sifri Devarim 1) that the gates of Yerushalayim are destined to reach until Damascus. If that is the case, instead of the war being in Yerushalayim with the inhabitants of Eretz Yisrael suffering from it, HKB"H widened Yerushalayim until Damascus in order that the great war will be there - as we currently see that Russia entered with powerful forces into Syria and even China made it known that it is going there - which apparently will cause a Third World War with the US and its neighbors and tremendous bloodshed until they destroy and annihilate each other.

"Remaining for us now is the task to be united among ourselves and to be careful to stay away from arguments and Leshon Hara because the Mashiah is already here and hears everything...

"We also must learn Torah with enthusiasm because Moshe did not want to redeem a nation who were idle from Torah study (as the holy Or Hahayim said in Parshat Tetzaveh). And then we will merit to see powerful miracles and wonders this year with the revelation of our righteous Mashiah by way of open mercy and kindness, Amen Netzah Sela Va'ed!"

I find it interesting that the 50th Gate to Yerushalayim has two names: the Golden Gate as it is known by the Umot HaOlam and Sha'ar HaRachamim as we know it in Lashon haQodesh. It leads from Har Zeitim through the Qidron Valley unto the Temple Mount to where the Ezrat HaNashim was at the time of the First two Temples. (It is blocked with stones at this time because of the fear of Muslims about the arrival of Mashiach.) All the other gateways to Yerushalayim lead from one place that is mundane to another place that is mundane, but the 50th Gate leads from a place that is mundane to a place that requires immersion in the ashes of the parah adumah (the Ezrat HaNashim). The fact that it is called Golden makes it the 50th since the Golden is always the 50th (Golden anniversary, the Golden Medinah with its 50 States, etc.) Yet, for Klal Yisrael it is the Sha'ar HaRachamim, the Gate of Mercy. Maybe we should remember that the 50th Gate is supposed to be a Merciful Gate for Klal Yisrael and not a Gate of Judgement for Yisrael as it is for the nations of the we approach the beginning of the 50th year of the reunification of Yerushalayim, the 28th of Iyar 5776 one week before Shavuot.

R' Dov, I'm not sure what your comment has to do with the post.

But, now that you mentioned שער הרחמים, I saw that someone is going on a 1-man march - with the goal of others to join him - from Nitzan to Yerushalayim, first to Kever David and then to Sha'ar Harahamim, demanding that it be opened. Maybe he is a Nahshon.

"The Gates of Yerushalayim extend to Damascus" to bring Din on the nations of the world in Syria, not in Eretz Yisrael. The Rachamim of this Geulah will therefore take place in Eretz Yisrael where the Jews are. It will not take place in Damascus.

This brings me to another point. Yom Yerushalayim is exactly one week before Shavuot. It is the 43rd day of the counting of the Omer, the 3rd day of the 6 day War. The significance should strike one with awe. There were 42 camps in the midbar before entering Eretz Yisrael including the starting pt. Rameses which was at Mem Tet Sha'arei Tumah. So including Rameses, in the midbar we went through 42 levels of purity. To reach the 43rd level, we therefore had to enter Eretz Yisrael!! The reunification of Yerushalayim therefore begins at the point that in order to continue to grow above level 42 (Malkhut that is in Yesod), we must enter Eretz Yisrael (if our circumstances allow for it of course). The Ba'al Teshuvah movement began in earnest also in 5727. At the beginning of the teshuvah process, one is not told by kiruv organizations in America what it is best to do 41 levels of purity later, that is to make Aliyah at from levels 42 to 43. It seems to me that the last 7 levels of teshuvah (the Malkhut levels) were meant to be done in Eretz Yisrael (again taking into acct. one's extenuating circumstances). I believe that the Rachamim at Sha'ar HaRachamim at the Gateway to the 50th level, is therefore meant to be found here in Eretz Yisrael. May we see it very soon. Amein.

It is known that The Day of Judgement starts from Sha’ar Harachamim. If that day was on Rosh Hashanah 5776 it follows that Mashiach was there at The Golden Gate on 12 September 2015 in order to trigger the events by invoking the divine power (Rabbi Chaim Kanievski had some clues), the Shekhinah that descends on earth at the time of the wars of Gog and Magog. The access to Sha’ar Harachamim could be done from the Muslim cemetery, which of course could not pollute a person such as Mashiach, the Messenger of Hashem. The unrests commencing on 13 Sept. 2015 in the morning are the proofs that Yom Hadin is here. Israel is put to the test; the demonic Ishmael will use every means possible to kill the people of Hashem. We shall see battles with guns in Israel and how such individuals of darkness, the Ishmael dressing in haredi attire for the purpose of killing Jews.
The happenings in Syria are related to the Gog and Magog wars. At the moment it is only a proxy war, but America will confront Russia in Syria. For the time being America could not be defeated, it will beat the Russians there, but later on the Mashiach intervenes and destroys America to the ashes. Then other big wars will follow, at the end India and Russia will be the winners. Israel will be purified, and the Erev Rav disappears. The mosques, places of satanic gatherings, will be demolished all over the world. The Indians will have such a task. Be aware Israel!

Sekh or anyone: Does Moshiach kill Gog somehow?

The Lubavitcher Rebbe and the Ben Ish Chai ( among others) long ago predicted that Milchemes Gog Umogug will be in the proximity of Eretz yisroel but will not directly affect the Jewish people.
I do not understand why is it necessary for comments here and elsewhere predicting that the USA ( an umah of chesed according to many Rebbes) will be destroyed, ch'v.

The chesed stopped in WWII (and possibly before that), when Jews were sent back to the ovens of the Shoah BY THE VERY UMAH OF CHESED YOU PRAISE. Look up the St. Louis - the search term "the st louis ship holocaust" should help.

We should look at the USA as she is now, and stop praising her. I would rather have seen Anne Frank be rescued from the jaws of Hitler, ys"v, a grandmother or great grandmother of children, than have the book "The Diary of Anne Frank." It is all because of the good ol' USA.

The Day of Judgment means the gradual separation of good and evil. It applies to individuals, nations, and even to businesses or companies, to everything that has the good-evil dichotomy.
Gog is the American nation, not an individual. If the past of the American nation is scrutinised we see the sins of this bloodthirsty country. Its sins are so many that it is impossible to survive to exist in the world to come, olam haba. Perhaps the Assyrian empire, which scattered the ten tribes of Israel, may be compared to the present day America. On such a basis any nation could be analysed. Why India will survive? It has good deeds, did not invade any land, etc. So, Israel survives for her mission of saving the world, and because her people were manly victims in the past. Yes, Israel will save the world through her righteous Mashiach.
Mashiach does not individually kill anyone; he invokes the power of Hashem to do it. And now Hashem is angry for the humanity which went astray. It is said that Mashiach’s breath is like fire, i.e. his words generate the fire. The purifying of humanity will be done by fire, compared to the time of Noah when it was done by water.
See also the comments I have written at:
As about Obama the Snake, he is the right person to lead America to complete annihilation. The fact that he distanced America from Israel is a mortal sin.

Thanks for this post, Yaak. I really needed to read this.

The American nation, even 30 years ago, was an Umah of Chessed......not anymore:

They removed the Ten Commandments "legally" from the Oklahoma City State Capitol grounds in the MIDDLE of the NIGHT!

If this is happening in one of the most conservative states in the US, what perversions and degradations are happening in New York and California? Face it, America is falling below Mem Tet Sha'arei Tumah this year 5776 after the three liberal Jews on the US Supreme Ct. forced homosexual marriage contracts and certificates on all 50 States. This gives a new meaning to the name Goldeneh Medinah, I guess. The spiritual ground is giving way beneath America's feet, for below the 49th level of Tumah is the Abyss.

The real test of the FORMER Medinah of Chessed will be as we approach the Summer of 5776, the beginning of the 50th summer starting with Bila'am's Summer of Zimah 1967 (5727) to bring America down past 49 levels of Tumah over the course of 49 years. The two letters that Bila'am and Balak have in common Bet and Lamed stand for Bill Clinton. Bill has principally guided this Bila'am process of sex in the public square degrading the culture during the course of these 49 years. The letters that they don't have in common, Ayin, Mem, Qoof stand for the Abyss that America is now entering under Barack Obama's fundamental transformation of America from a Nation of Chessed to, well, something pretty wicked. Add a Lamed to Ameq, and you get the picture. In a sense or in essence America's spiritual collapse and Israel's Ba'alei Teshuvah have been approaching their respective Golden Gates

1. One leads from the Qidron Valley to the Ezrat HaNashim on the Temple Mt.

2. while the other leads from Marin County to San Francisco, California at both ends of which is the "50th level of impurity". The Summer of Zimah, of course, started out in San Franfreako, but now has been adopted in all 50 American States. a dangerous situation indeed. The last marker of the 49th level was passed in June when American Pharoah won the Triple Crown at level 49 followed by forced homosexual marriages in all 50 States by the end of June.

Amen! Alevi this Rebbe is correct. But he is not. Navuah is navuah. As long as one Odox Jew believes they are spiritually superior to another Odox Jew in terms of practice or hashkofa - to the extent Rabbis place innocent, G-d fearing people in herem because their ideas do not conform with today's Haredi-keit, our enemies will continue to surround us, and we, too, will be in herem.

Sorry to be a party pooper.

I wonder how the Mishkoltz Rebbe knows for sure

Is he just guessing?
does he claim to have nevuah?

he says " my heart tells me"

my heart tells me the same thing
that things will be good for all of klall yisroel and moshiach will come

The war of Gog and Magog will be much comprehensive than the current fights in Syria. It will be a big and catastrophic war engulfing the entire world. It is simplistic to come to the conclusion that Israel is able to avoid such a war. Scriptures cannot be ignored and be optimistic that Israel has no part in such an important war ushering in the World to Come, olam haba. The prophecies tell about nations coming against Jerusalem, any interpretation, such as extending the boundaries of Jerusalem to Damascus, is childish. Without such a war how Israel will be cleansed of Erev Rav and other enemies within? It is a war fundamentally made known in the Scriptures for being the mechanism through which the corrupted world is eliminated.
Those fearing being killed, although good souls, should ponder upon the idea of resurrection. Their focus should be on enhancing the personal Shekhinah that every Jew has a spark in his/her body. Do teshuvah, good deeds, and you will be inspired how to survive. Be aware Israel!

I think Syria is a catastrophic war that is engulfing all the countries around it. It may very well be the start of something more comprehensive.

And, the prophets didn't know the differences between a World War or a massive invasion or NATO treaties.

And, Syria is indirectly affecting Israel because of Hamas & Daesh--Iran's proxies. Furthermore, ISIS/DAESH is entrenched throughout the Middle-East and its actions are having far-reaching consequences for the the entire world--i.e., migrants.

Today, Turkey is rumored to have shot down a Russian MIG fighter. More confrontations may result in escalating warfare between Turkey and Russia ensnaring the rest of NATO.

While the rest of the world may fight in Syria--Hamas & Daesh are no doubt plotting harm against Israel and these stabbings may just be the beginning of another intifada. G-d forbid!

But if Hashem has been protecting Israel against rocket attacks--why not against a massive invasion?

Will there be fighting--yes, unfortunately--by why is everyone talking about the harshest scenarios? Chill people!

And, If the Erev Rav do teshuva, they can live. Who says they can't? Only Hashem can decide and no one knows anything for sure. Perhaps Hashem is more merciful that we realize.

Prophecy and conjecture are not fact. Things change. We just have to wait and see how it all plays out.

By the way, OBAMA can't unilaterally declare war on Israel--that requires an act of congress. Britain, France and Canada all have laws that require parliamentary approval. If they (NATO) come to Jerusalem it is because they have to fight Putin & China not to protect Israel. --Diaspora RO

Sekh, I would warn you against calling any interpretation by a noted rabbi "childish". You can disagree in a way that retains the dignity of the rabbi by saying something like "I did not merit to understand his holy words" or something similar.

You ask how Israel will be cleansed of the Erev Rav. I put nothing past HKB"H. Things can occur with Rahamim and we pray for such a scenario.

Diaspora RO, prophecy is fact. However, the negative prophecy can change due to repentance. We do have that power of changing such negative prophecies. We hope for such a scenario and we therefore need to tell people what could happen if we do not repent. Thus, we talk about the harshest scenario. Nevertheless, you are correct that only Hashem will ultimately decide.

The respected Rabbi says: "My heart tells me," concluded the Rebbe, "that HKB"H is having mercy on Am Yisrael and despite what the prophets have prophesied - that the Gog Umagog War needs to be within Yerushalayim - nevertheless HKB"H sweetened this and He is currently making it in Syria".

The Syrian conflict is just the beginning of the great transformation of planet Earth. The prophecies could be annulled if Israel merits, but we don’t see at the present such a scenario. Right now Israel is in “the birth pangs of Mashiach”, Chevelei haMashiach. It will be good that the valued Rabbi is right, and we praise Hashem to have mercy on Israel. However, things are going out of control right now, Israel is in fear as the prophecies state. Mashiach is doing what is best for Am Israel. He is nevertheless behind the fighting the wars of Hashem that just started. Today is better to be realistic than optimistic. I sincerely apologise if the word I used about Rebbe’s statements, i.e. “childish”, is regarded as offensive.

Sekh, I wholeheartedly agree that it is better to be realistic than optimistic. The only difference is that in this post, we're talking about a Hasidic Rebbe who, most would agree, has a better inkling of what's going on in the heavens than you or me. So, if he is giving us an optimistic perspective, that is real reason for optimism. So even though we still must be realistic about it, this should give us greater hope for a merciful Redemption.

What the revered Rav says is closer to how I see events turning. However, there is always the possibility of an 'event' occurring within Israel to increase the teshuva of the heart that HaShem desires from His children. (I say this contrary to all those manufactured videos etc as I've written before)
