Geula Update from Rav Fish - No'ah 5774 (More on Rav Ovadia Shlit"a)

From Rav Fish's latest:  (continuation from last week)

  • Rav Ovadia Shlit"a and MBY
    • And it was also publicized already a few years ago that Rav Meir Mazuz Shlit"a said about Maran Rav Ovadia Shlit"a that he is MBY.  Similar words were also publicized in the name of Rav Ben Tzion Abba Sha'ul ZT"L. 
    • The Or Hahayim (Devarim 15:7) says that Mashiah's name is "Hayim".
    • Maran Rav Ovadia clung all his life to the book "Beit Yosef".  In a book about Rav Kaduri ZT"L's life, it's brought down that Rav Kaduri said that Rav Ovadia is a Gilgul of the Beit Yosef.
    • Rav Ovadia was a chief [????] rabbi in Egypt where Yosef Hatzaddik was viceroy.
    • Rav Ovadia's father's name was Yaakov just like Yosef Hatzaddik's father was Yaakov Avinu.
    • It was also publicized that when Rav Scheinberg ZT"L was about to meet Rav Ovadia Shlit"a, he told his associates that he was going to shake Mashiah's hand.
    • Maran Rav Ovadia is known as a lenient halachic decisor except when it comes to laws of modesty, which is related to the attribute of Yesod of Yosef, where Maran is more stringent than others.
    • Also, his message throughout the years has been "להחזיר העטרה לישנה" - to return the crown to its old prominence.  This hints to Ateret Hayesod, which is the aspect of MBY - the aspect of Malchut, i.e. the crown - in Yesod, i.e. Yosef.
    • Also, his party is Shas.  ש"ס is the gematria of שכם, where Yosef is buried.
      • Also, it's brought down in Sha'ar Hakavanot (Tefillin, Derush 4) that ש"ס is the gematria of שי"ן.  And the letter שי"ן is the symbol of the completion of Yesod with all 3 stems included in it, as the Zohar brings down (Vayakhel 204a).
    • Also, רבנו חיים עובדיה יוסף is Rashei Teivot רחע"י, whose gematria is רפ"ח.  The main purpose of MBY is to complete the filtering of the 288 sparks in order to complete the era of exile.
      • Therefore, עטרה with the letters = 288, as is brought in the book "Derech Pikudecha" (chapter 4).
      • Also, it's brought down in Sefer Hahezyonot by Rav Hayim Vital (vol. 2 no. 23) to have Kavana in the Rashei Teivot of רופא חולי עמו ישראל - which is the same רחע"י - that it is the gematria of רפ"ח [the 288 sparks].
    • Also, משיח עבד ה' is hinted to in מרן חיים עבדיה יוסף שליט"א.
    • Also, the Rashei Teivot of הרב חיים עובדיה יוסף שליט"א is the same Rashei Teivot as על חומותיך ירושלים הפקדתי שומרים.
    • Also, the prophet Ovadia prophesied on the downfall of Edom in the future, and that is the aspect of Yosef who is the archenemy of Edom, as it brought in Rashi (Bereishit 30:25)
    • And it's brought down in Midrash (Bereishit Rabba 63:8 [or 63:10]) that the vengeance against Edom will be in the merit of MBY,  about whom is the verse said, "רִאשׁוֹן לְצִיּוֹן, הִנֵּה הִנָּם". And the matter is tied to the holiday of Sukkot. And we will paraphrase some of it:
      Rabbi Haggai said in the name of Rabbi Yitzhak: With the merit of "And ye shall take you on the first day", I will punish for you the "first" - this refers to Esav, as it says, "And the first came forth ruddy", and I will bring for you the "first" - this is the King Mashiah, about whom the verse says "A [first] harbinger unto Zion will I give".
      Also, Rabbi Haggai (חגי) who is the author of this teaching, it is hinted in his name to the holiday of Sukkot, which is the time that Hashem will take His vengeance against Edom in the Gog Umagog War.
      • And we saw that in our numerous sins, Maran became very sick during Hag Hasukkot, 5774.
      • And it's also brought down in Megaleh Amukot on the Torah that when he quotes the Midrash, he says explicitly that ראשון לציון הנה הנם is Yosef, meaning MBY, who will punish Esav.
      • It's also brought down in the Sefer Halikutim by the Ariza"l regarding the vengeance against Edom (Tehillim 436):
        It says, "גְּעַר חַיַּת קָנֶה" - because it is known that there are 2 aspects: the side of spiritual uncleanliness, which is called חמץ, and the side of holiness, which is called מצה.  And when one cuts the leg of the ח, one remains with a ה.  And when one cuts the leg of the ק of קנה, one remains with הנה, with the Sod of ראשון לציון הנה הנם.  And that is the idea of גער חית קנה - meaning, rebuke the ח and the ק of קנה and cut them and make them into the letter ה, thereby making חמץ into מצה and from קנה into הנה.
        We see that the vengeance against Edom during the time of the Redemption will turn their קנה into ראשון לציון הנה הנם.
      • Also, the Rashei Teivot of רבנו חיים עובדיה יוסף is found inside the words גער חית.
      • Also, Maran symbolizes exiting all the exiles: 
        • He was in Egypt and went up to Israel from there
        • He was born in Iraq and went up to Israel from there
        • He was the chief rabbi of Tel Aviv, which symbolizes the Greek exile, and he went up from there to Yerushalayim
        • And soon he will go up from the exile of Esav, which we are still enduring, as Maran expressed in his Shiur about Obama: עבדים מושלים בנו.
      • And it's also brought down in the book "Torat Natan" that the Rashei Teivot of משיח בן יוסף is the Rashei Teivot of the exiles: בבל מדי יון.
    • [From last week:]  Also, חיים עובדיה יוסף בן גורג'יה has the gematria of 600, which hints to MBY, to whom the number שש [the number 6] applies, which has the gematria of 600.
      • This is also the gematria of יוסף הצדיק בן יעקב
    • Also, חיים עובדיה יוסף בן יעקב with the letters equals משיח בן יוסף with the letters.
    • Rav Mas'ud Abuhatzeira adds that the addition of the name "Hayim" occurred during Sukkot, 5774 to hint that Maran Shlit"a had the aspect of the spinal cord of Kelal Yisrael - with the Sod of לולב which is compared to a spine and has the same gematria as חיים.
      • And just as the Lulav symbolizes the Tzaddik Yesod, which influences life [חיים] to the entire world - in the aspect of the spiritual spinal cord which ends at the Yesod as is known - so too Maran Shlit"a suffered pains in his back in the place of the spinal cord to symbolize that the Tzaddik (spine) bears the sins of Israel.
      • [YY - I'll add that in the Piyut סוכה ולולב, Yosef is explicitly compared to a Lulav.]
      • Also, they installed a pacemaker into Maran during Sukkot, 5774 and the letters of לולב are לו לב - [to him, a heart].
        • Also, on Simhat Torah, one concludes and begins anew, the Torah whose last and first letter are ל"ב.
      • Rav Tzion David Siboni adds that the gematria of the Sofei Teivot of רב חיים עובדיה יוסף בן גורג'יה are 180, which is the Sod of the 18 vertebrae in the spine and the 18 shakes of the Lulav.
    • The Rashei Teivot of חיים עובדיה יוסף is the same Rashei Teivot as the verse עוד יוסף חי.
    • The gematria of חיים עבדיה יוסף is the same as the verse עוד יוסף בני חי.
    • Torah Code 1
      • We will bring another table within which we see in the period of the test of Yosef with the wife of Potifar, the coded words: "Maran", "Rabbeinu", "Ga'on", "Rishon Letzion" (abbreviated), "Hacham", "Rav", "Hayim", "Ovadia" (without the ו), "Yosef", "Mashiah", "Ben", "Yosef", "[5]775", and also the words "Eved Hashem" (servant of Hashem" and "Bari" (healthy). 
      • Also, the name עבדיה, which means עבד ה', appears within the words where Yosef withstood the test with the wife of Potifar "וַתִּתְפְּשֵׂהוּ בְּבִגְדוֹ לֵאמֹר שִׁכְבָה עִמִּי וַיַּעֲזֹב בִּגְדוֹ בְּיָדָהּ וַיָּנָס וַיֵּצֵא הַחוּצָה". And there are 6 letters between each letter since 6 symbolizes Yesod and withstanding the test of Yesod.
      • Also, the ח of חכם is the same ח used for חיים.
    • Torah Code 2
      • And we also found amazing discoveries within that same table that also the word מלך appears twice.  Once exactly above the word עבדיה with a 5-letter skip and once with a 3-letter skip, with the letters between each letter spelling אחישנו.  The amazing thing is that from the ך of the 3-letter-skip מלך counting backwards 90 letters (90 being the gematria of מלך), we start a backwards code of the word מושיע, which also has a 90-letter skip.  And the ע of מושיע is within the word ישמעאל.  All this is saying is that he is a king who saves from Yishmael.
      • Also, מושיע is Rashei Teivot for מורינו ורבינו עובדיה יוסף שליט"א.
      • We also see that each letter from מושיע falls in an important word: the letter מ falls in אמת, the letter ו falls in תום, which is synonymous with קץ, the letter ש falls in ישראל, the letter י falls in the שם הויה, and the letter ע falls in ישמעאל.
      • Of course, the ideas revealed in the Torah code are said on condition that we pray very hard for Maran's recovery since the life of MBY is dependant upon prayers, especially in the Boneh Yerushalayim prayer in the Amidah, as the Ariza"l writes.   
    • Torah Code 3
      • And we also found more amazing discoveries within that same table: the books authored by Maran Shlit"a appear twice: "Sefer", "Shu"t", "Yabi'a", "Omer", "Yehaveh", "Da'at", "Torah", "Ma'or", "Gadol". 
      • And we see an amazing thing that the words יחוה and יביע appear within the name עבדיה.
      • And within יביע אומר appears "בידי יוסף". 

Please continue to pray for Rav Hayim Ovadia Yosef ben Gorgia.

Only an extreme jew-centric interpretation of the tanack can make anyone conclude Rav Ovadia Shlit"a is MBY.

"extreme jew-centric interpretation of the tanack [sic]"?

בשביל ישראל שנקרא ראשית - any other interpretation that's not Jew-centric is by definition false. 99.999% of my readers would agree with that. Who's extreme now?

yy, i thought that MBY will leave us physically in a physically fought war. can you please explain further. i do know Maran is a great gaon. my rabbis have told me that. thanks.

In a similar vein, Ya'akov Yosef Lew was Mishneh LaMelekh for a couple of years before becoming either the Budget Director or the Treasury Secretary. Notice that his name can refer to the fact that he is Yosef ben Ya'akov. just two problems: 1. His boss is one of the pre-eminent reshayim whose number one foreign policy goal is to divide Jerusalem.

2. The Torah specifically says that Mashiach ben Ephraim will rule in Eretz Yisrael not in Chu"l. "vaYidgu LaRov B'Kerev HaAretz".

At least Rav Ovadia Yosef meets criterion #2. I am not sure if he meets criterion number 1. Shas remained in the Olmert govt. for a year and a half when Olmert was making a big deal about trying to divide Jerusalem. Of course one might calculate that everyone knew that no deal would ever come to fruition, but is not MBY supposed to die over the issue of NOT dividing Jerusalem?

But G-d forbid he passes, will everyone in Israel mourn? Prophecy talks about someone who is loved by everyone...who will fall within one of the gates of Yerushalayim and THEN mashiach will come and a war with him...Excuse me for saying but I think you are off on this on...

At Sun Oct 06, 05:46:00 AM 2013, Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Of course I will mourn. Rav Ovadia approved of being in Olmert's govt., and it ended up causing no problem for the integrity of the security of Jews in Eretz Yisrael since no deal was signed anyway. No unilateral stupidity resulted from his being in that government. I would just argue that he is NOT Mashiach ben Yosef. That is all. But he is still a Gadol Yisrael who did NOT fall for the ruse of Ariel Sharon in Gaza which has resulted in death and loss of limbs.

288 = ((288*274)^2 - 13!)^(1/2)

Extraordinary number.

every tzaddik or kodesh is a spark of both mashiachs according to ch 1 of kol hator. mashiach mamash only when the rophet elijah comes to earth sent by the Creator will we know for sure . As for rav opvadia both his names yosef-ovadia are neged esau mamash more then any 2 names in the 24 books of tanach . May it be Hashems will he is mashiach .

At Sun Oct 06, 11:08:00 PM 2013, Blogger madaral said...

If you go according to Kol HaTor, MBY reveals secrets of Torah. According to Perek 5, Chelek 2, he uses Chochmot HaOlam for that. Rav Ovadia seems to not have read that.

Any comments that are disrespectful in even the slightest way to Rav Ovadia Shlit"a are inappropriate at any time, but especially now when he is fighting for his life.

Please pray for Rav Hayim Ovadia Yosef ben Gorgia.

Maran Rav Chaim Ovadiya Yosef zt"l has just passed on into the Olam HaEmeth. We have lost, most likely, the last of the Acharonim even in the Sephardic World. An Age has passed.

Baruch Dayan Emeth.

May the Omnipresent comfort us all amongst the remnant of the mourners of Tzion and Yerushalayim.

The levaya will be at 6pm from the Ben Porat Yosef Yeshivah in Geulah on Yosef ben Matityahu St. to the Sanhedria Cemetery. I believe that the processional will likely be along Malkei Yisrael, Sarei Yisrael aka Shamgar and then right on Yirmiyahu aka Bar Ilan until the Shmuel HaNavi/ Golda Me'ir junction. We are in an unusual City. Streets can change names up to three or four times along their length. Yirmiyahu is aka Bar Ilan, Chativat Harel, and Shederot Eshkol.

Yaak, sorry, I got a little lost in my wanderings on your blog. B"H I found it again.

Could you elaborate a bit on this:

"Also, Maran symbolizes exiting all the exiles: 
He was in Egypt and went up to Israel from there
He was born in Iraq and went up to Israel from there
He was the chief rabbi of Tel Aviv, which symbolizes the Greek exile, and he went up from there to Yerushalayim
And soon he will go up from the exile of Esav, which we are still enduring, as Maran expressed in his Shiur about Obama: עבדים מושלים בנו."

What does this mean עבדים מושלים בנו ... And is his shiur about O translated? as I have not read this previously.

I linked to an old post in this post, which itself links to a YWN article which has more info.

עבדים משלו בנו is part of Selihot we say every Monday and Thursday and from R"H Elul to Yom Kippur.
