Geula Update from Rav Fish - Shofetim 5773

From Rav Fish's latest:
  • Peace Talks
    • We saw clearly that the exact hour - at 3:00 AM on 23 Av - when they finally approved the cruel budget against the Yeshiva boys, they sat down in the U.S. for a new process of peace talks, including Edom putting pressure on the State of Israel to return territories to the Arabs. And it's said that the pressure today is the greatest ever, both from the U.S. and from the E.U., who already banned the settlements, etc. Upon this, it is written: וַהֲלַכְתֶּם עִמִּי, בְּקֶרִי. וְהָלַכְתִּי עִמָּכֶם, בַּחֲמַת-קֶרִי; וְיִסַּרְתִּי אֶתְכֶם [and you walked with Me with "Kerry". And I will walk with you with the fury of "Kerry", and I will punish you...] The name of the American Secretary of State who putting pressure on the State of Israel is "Kerry". [YY - see also here.]
    • And I heard from the [elusive] Kabbalist Rav Moshe Aharon Hakohen Shlit"a that the awakening of Gog Umagog will begin with the pressure of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.
    • Nine Months
      • And it was publicized that the Americans gave 9 months for the peace talks, which will conclude on Shevi'i Shel Pesah, 5774.
      • We earlier brought down the Gr"a on Tikkunei Zohar, who said that the Redemption will come after there is distress for Talmidei Hachamim for 9 months and together with this, the Kingdom of Rome will spread for 9 months.
      • And we find in the Gemara (Yoma 10a): "Rav Yehuda said in the name of Rav: [Mashiah] Ben David will not come until the Kingdom of Romi spreads over the entire world for 9 months." We see that that the evil kingdom = Romi = Edom = America and Europe of today, who are applying the pressure.
      • The Mashgiah Rav Don Segel is quoted as saying, "HKB"H is crying for us to get closer to Him. And if Has Veshalom, we don't rectify ourselves and don't get closer, it is called 'וַהֲלַכְתֶּם עִמִּי, בְּקֶרִי. וְהָלַכְתִּי עִמָּכֶם, בַּחֲמַת-קֶרִי'. We will Has Veshalom finish progressing. Horror of horrors."
      • Also, קרי hints to the blemish of the Berit and the Internet, which has spread - Rahmana Litzlan - in our generation. This is because Eretz Yisrael spits out those who blemish their Berit, as is brought down in the Zohar (Va'era 23a, Pinhas 225b).
      • R' Y.S. Tzur adds that קרי is the gematria of נחל חרדי since it is a punishment for trying to recruit Yeshiva boys into the Nahal Haredi - it should never happen.
  • Crying in Prayer Before Danger
    • And I heard in the name of Rav Daniel Stavsky that the following verses in Yoel 2 apply to today:
      1 Blow ye the horn in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain; let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is at hand; 2 A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, as blackness spread upon the mountains; a great people and a mighty, there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after them, even to the years of many generations. 3 A fire devoureth before them, and behind them a flame blazeth; the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing escapeth them. 4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so do they run. 5 Like the noise of chariots, on the tops of the mountains do they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a mighty people set in battle array. 6 At their presence the peoples are in anguish; all faces have gathered blackness. 7 They run like mighty men, they climb the wall like men of war; and they move on every one in his ways, and they entangle not their paths. 8 Neither doth one thrust another, they march every one in his highway; and they break through the weapons, and suffer no harm. 9 They leap upon the city, they run upon the wall, they climb up into the houses; they enter in at the windows like a thief. 10 Before them the earth quaketh, the heavens tremble; the sun and the moon are become black, and the stars withdraw their shining. 11 And the LORD uttereth His voice before His army; for His camp is very great, for he is mighty that executeth His word; for great is the day of the LORD and very terrible; and who can abide it? 12 Yet even now, saith the LORD, turn ye unto Me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with lamentation; 13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God; for He is gracious and compassionate, long-suffering, and abundant in mercy, and repenteth Him of the evil. 14 Who knoweth whether He will not turn and repent, and leave a blessing behind Him, even a meal-offering and a drink-offering unto the LORD your God? 15 Blow the horn in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly; 16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts; let the bridegroom go forth from his chamber, and the bride out of her pavilion.
    • This tells us that we need to move heaven and earth in prayer when we see decrees as harsh as these, and not to be quiet and peaceful Has Veshalom. And this is what the author of the Shevet Halevi called for on Erev Rosh Hodesh.
    • In times past, when there were harsh decrees against communities outside of Israel, men, women, and children would gather in the synagogues and cry out to Hashem, but today, when so many decrees have landed together, both against the physical and the spiritual, the world is business as usual... As one of the rabbis said: "The situation is reminiscent of the eve of the dreaded Holocaust, when indeed they were concerned about all the looming troubles, but nevertheless, during the Bein Hazmanim of 5699, a mere few days before the Holocaust started, everyone was on vacation, as usual.
  • More About Kerry
    • Rav Glazerson adds that in the past, there was another Secretary of State who applied pressure upon Israel to return settlements: his name was [James] Baker, with בֵּיקֶר being the same letters as בְּקֶרִי.
    • Kerry is also hinted to in the Palestinian negotiator [Saeb] Erekat, with his name in Hebrew עריקאת.
    • Kerry is also hinted to in אמריקה [America].
    • Also ג'ון קרי or אובמה וקרי has the gematria of "עש". As the Megaleh Amukot (Toledot) says, at the time of the Final Redemption, Yaakov Avinu will take the Vav from עשו's name and he will turn into עש [a moth], as it says עש יאכלם [the moth shall eat them up]. It is also brought down in Etz Hayim by the Ariza"l (שער יג ח"א ע' רא) that one who sins blemishes the clothing of his soul, and brings the "moth" on them.
    • R' Tzion David Siboni adds that the gematria of יש עתיד and שי פירון is the same as קרי.
    • It's brought down in Rav Glazerson's book "Leshon Hakodesh" that the capital of Edom and Esav is called קסרי, which has the letters "קרי ס". In Rav Fish's essay "Hashmal Ot", he explains that the letter ס symbolizes the Yesod of Malchut, which is where the Sitra Ahara grabs onto. Therefore, the Yenika of Esav, the Yesod of the Kelipa, is from the aspect of קרי and from the aspect of ס.
      • Also, ג'ון קרי is the gematria of קסרי. And with the letters, it is the gematria of עשו.
    • Also, קרי is the symbol of Amalek, who came from Edom, as Rashi explains on (Devarim 25:18) אשר קרך בדרך: An expression of seminal emission and impurity, as he made them impure with homosexuality.
    • Also, the Zohar (Toledot 145a) explains that Esav spat [ירק] when he heard that Yaakov Avinu stole the Berachot from him. ירק has the same letters as קרי. Also, רוק [spit] has the same gematria as ערלה.
  • Torah Codes
  • The Source of Spiritual Decline in Our Generation
    • We could explain why there is so much decline in spirituality and people going off the Derech in our generation, especially via the Internet, which has caused the downfall of many, including G-d fearing and wholesome people. This is because the souls of the Generation of Redemption came to the world to learn the inner secrets of the Torah, so if they don't learn and taste from the light from where the root of the soul resides, there is no light that will push away the darkness. And therefore, it is specifically technology that draws people to sin as technology is the "Le'umat Zeh" [antithesis] in physicality of the revelation of the inner secrets of the Torah in the final generation. As the Zohar (Vayera 116b) says:
      In the year 5600, the gates of wisdom above and the wellsprings of wisdom below will open up and the world will prepare to enter into the seventh millennium like a person who prepares on Friday as the sun is setting to enter into Shabbat.
      We see that from the year 5600, the era of preparing for the Redemption has begun with the revelation of the inner secrets of the Torah on the holy side and the wisdom of technology on the Kelipa side. And if we don't taste the root of the soul on the holy side, and the Kelipa opens up all the gates, what is a son to do other than sin when he doesn't have a little light to push away the darkness?
  • Polar Ice Caps Melting
    • It was publicized recently that the ice on the North Pole and South Pole is melting a lot quicker than expected, and even though from above, it looks frozen, it was revealed that it is melting from bottom to top, and there is a concern of sudden tragedies in the world. Rav S. Raiskin adds that the phrase היבשה תוצף [the dry land will become flooded] is the gematria of הגאולה תתחיל [the Redemption will begin].
  • Gog Umagog Involving Egypt
    • [We mentioned previously about the various sources that Gog Umagog starting in Egypt. On that note,] we see today that the U.S. (Magog) supports the Muslim Brotherhood, who was ousted out of power in Egypt, while Russia supports the new government that took its place. We see how it is very likely that the complexity of Gog Umagog can be around Egypt.
  • Children Knowing The Keitz
    • [After quoting the Zohar (Vayera 118a) that when the Keitz is close, even children will know how to calculate it, he adds:] It is similarly brought down in "Otzerot Ramha"l" (p. 254)
      The Sod of the reason the Zohar says that at the end of the exile, even children can say the Kitzin is that the Ze'eir Anpin in exile has the Sod of Katnut, on which the Sitra Ahara has a hold. At the end of the exile, however, when this status will end, the children will reveal Kitzim since through their revelations, the Sitra Ahara, who grabbed onto the Ze'eir Anpin during Katnut will be pushed far away and with this, its level will be increased speedily in our days, Amen.
      This means that when the Zohar says that the children will reveal Kitzim, it doesn't mean "children" literally, but rather, the aspect of children. Since now, the Ze'eir Anpin is in Katnut and the S"A has hold on it, we need to reveal the Keitz of Redemption at the end of the exile while it's still in the Mohin of Katnut, which has the aspect of a child. And by doing so, the S"A that was grabbing hold of it will be removed. We see from his words that not only is there no prohibition of revealing the Keitz, but just the opposite, it is a great Mitzva to do so since by doing so, it removes the Sitra Ahara's hold which thereby brings the Redemption closer.
  • Elul 25 on Shabbat
    • We find in the Zohar (Balak 112b) that at the beginning of the process of the coming of Mashiah, the 25th of Elul will fall out on Shabbat. This occurs in both 5773 and 5774.
    • In addition, that Shabbat, we read Parshiyot Nitzavim-Vayelech, which correspond to the current century we are in, and have to do with the Redemption.
    • R' S. Reiskin adds that the phrase כ"ה אלול תשע"ג is the gematria of לכה דודי לקראת כלה.
    • Also, אלול תשע"ג is the gematria of משיח יתגלה
    • Also, אלול with the letters is the gematria of גוג ומגוג with the Kollel.
  • Miscellaneous
    • The verse that talks about the unification of Redemption: מִי זֹאת, עֹלָה מִן-הַמִּדְבָּר, מִתְרַפֶּקֶת, עַל-דּוֹדָהּ; תַּחַת הַתַּפּוּחַ, עוֹרַרְתִּיךָ--שָׁמָּה חִבְּלַתְךָ אִמֶּךָ, שָׁמָּה חִבְּלָה יְלָדַתְךָ has Rashei Teivot ה'תשע"ד [which is 5774].
    • Also, the verse וַעֲבַרְתֶּם, אֶת-הַיַּרְדֵּן, וִישַׁבְתֶּם בָּאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר-יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם מַנְחִיל אֶתְכֶם; וְהֵנִיחַ לָכֶם מִכָּל-אֹיְבֵיכֶם מִסָּבִיב, וִישַׁבְתֶּם-בֶּטַח is Sofei Teivot מלחמה [war] and Rashei Teivot מואב or אובמא if you reuse the א.
    • פורת יוסף is the gematria of משיח צמח שמו. It is also the gematria of אלול תשע"ג with the words.
  • Rav Elyashiv and the Doubling of History
    • יוסף שלום אלישיב with the words = 888 = ב' תתפ"ו. And we brought from the gemara (Sanhedrin 20a and Tosafot there) that the number that this represents - 2,886 - is the number of years from Adam Harishon until David Hamelech ruled alone. And if we add another 2,886, we again get David, the Mashiah, in the year 5772.
    • Also, תתפ"ו hints to the verse that deals with preparing the meal-offering: פָּתוֹת אֹתָהּ פִּתִּים, וְיָצַקְתָּ עָלֶיהָ שָׁמֶן; מִנְחָה, הִוא This is a hint that the number 2,886 is connected to the preparation of the Minha, which is the preparation to Malchut and Redemption that applies to Mashiah Ben Yosef, as he explained earlier. And after the פתות (the 2,886 years), one can pour the oil and annoint the king as the verse continues. Also, ב' אלפים תתפ"ו is the gematria of מנחה סלת מחבת מרחשת חלות רקיקם.
  • Al-Qaeda is the Kelipa that is Connected to Keitz Hayamin
    • [After noting that the war against Al-Qaeda is not over, but on a low flame,] R' Tzion David Siboni adds that קָעִידָה [Qaeda] is the gematria of קץ [Keitz] and אל [Al], with different Nikud, is Hashem's name of kindness, which is related to the right side. We see that in the name "Al-Qaeda", the Keitz Hayamin is hinted to in its name and identity. This is why at the end of the Shemitta year 5761, which was a time of Keitz, they performed the act of terror on the Twin Towers, etc. We see that their actions were in a manner that was higher than the category of nature, but was enclothed in nature. Also, אל-קעידה has the Rashei Teivot of א"ק, which Kabbalistically represents a higher world. Also, the head of the Kelipa's name is "Bin Laden", and we find in the Zohar (Bereishit 6b) that the Kelipa of בלאדן is the Kelipa of a dog. And a dog is the Kelipa that works for Eliyahu Hanavi, as the Megaleh Amukot brings down on the gemara (Bava Kama 60b) "Dogs playing is a sign that Eliyahu came to the city" because אליהו is the gematria of כלב, and is the aspect of the שם ב"ן of holiness. Therefore, when Eliyahu comes to the city, dogs are playing since they are the "Le'umat Zeh" of Eliyahu and they nurture from him.

Here we go again. . . blaming sexual immorality for our problems!

Have we forgotten what is CLEARLY THE PROBLEM?

Sinat Hinam - hating another observant Jew because his halachic practice or haskofic view is different.

What is so hard to figure out people!?

When can we stop wasting our time is kabbalistic speculation and focus on what Hazal CLEARLY STATE is the issue?

Or do we only focus on it for three weeks a year?

We must stop being so dense!

blessed shabbat yy.
both are equally important, atleast thats my humble view. how can one love a fellow jew and do all the negative commandments and think that this one commandment of loving a fellow jew commandment will save. thats like the xtian belief. do all the sins, believe in jesus and he will be saved!!. studying torah and the holy writings is very important, and equally important is living jewish lives according to the teachings of chazal. if one really studied and followed the teachings of chazal they will keep away from immorality.

Well said, 10rainbow. Anonymous should stop thinking so one-dimensionally.

Thank you for bringing this, Yaak.

Shabbat shalom!

Thank you Yaak, it is pleasure to read this post and other posts. I am the one who saw dreams with two mashiahs and when I'll get $12000 from my current job(which will be around Rosh Hashanna and Yom Kippur), Mashiah(s) will come. Another interesting thing is that we are expecting a baby on around 25 Elul, 5773 B'H and I pray that my baby will be the last Neshama coming down from the "GUF"(the place where all Neshamot stores that needs to come down for the Tikkun and once the last Neshama will go down, Mashiah will come) and B'H" my baby should bring Mashiah Tsidkeinu with Mercy, Amen!
Please pray for that too.
Shabbat Shalom

"they run upon the wall, they climb up into the houses; they enter in at the windows like a thief."

At Sun Aug 11, 11:35:00 AM 2013, Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

The Medrash Sefer Eliyahu date of the 20th of Elul is likely this year 5773 because the 20th or the 21st of Elul 5773 is exactly 271 days after the UN Gen. Assembly Vote for Palestine on the 15th of Kislev (138-9). 271 days is the length of pregnancy according to the Talmud.

On the other hand the Zohar Balak 212 (Tell Rav Fish that it is in Balak 212 not 112) reference is really for Friday afternoon (Yom Shishi) before Shabbat on which the 25th of Elul might actually fall. Taking account the actual time for the molad in 5774 for Elul at 7:34pm just after sundown on the 30th of Av, the reference in the Zohar for the 25th of Elul is likely in 5774. So we are speaking about two separate events in two separate years 20 or 21 Elul 5773 and 25 Elul 5774. I should stress that according to the calendar of Hillel HaSheini, the 25th of Elul can NEVER fall on Erev Shabbat. So this has to be based on the molad for Elul, and the molad for Elul in 5774 allows for the 25th of Elul to fall on Erev Shabbat in accordance with that molad.

At Sun Aug 11, 12:03:00 PM 2013, Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Plus I should point out that there are many reputable websites like who have pinpointed the event mentioned in Balak 212 for the 25th of Elul to the fall of the Twin Towers and the Pentagon on the 23rd of Elul 5761. Besides the fact that the description of three walls falling in the Zohar happened two days too early, the 23rd of Elul 5761 was on a Tuesday, not a Friday or Shabbat. And it did not bring Mashiach within 70 days. As a matter of fact, even if it did spur on some Aliyah, it did not lead to a massive change in Jewish awareness of the dangers of remaining in Galut.
