Geula Update from Rav Fish - Balak 5774

From Rav Fish's latest:
  • The murdered boys
    • The names of the cities: טלמון, נוף אילון, אלעד are Rashei Teivot טנא.  
      • The book "Tzemah Hatzevi" brings down that this is the same Rashei Teivot as טעמים נקדות אותיות (cantillation marks, vowel, letters), which represent the inner workings of the Torah.
      • טנא (basket) also symbolizes the vessel in which the best fruits of Eretz Yisrael are brought up to Hashem when bringing Bikkurim.
    • Dates
      • We mentioned two weeks ago that the 15th of Sivan (when the boys were kidnapped and murdered) was a less-than-perfect day when the Previous Lubavitcher Rebbe was arrested by the KGB.
      • The day the bodies were found was on 3 Tammuz, which is also less-than-perfect for Chabad when the Last Lubavitcher Rebbe passed away and was the day the Previous Lubavitcher Rebbe was exiled.
        • When King David eulogized King Saul, he said: הַצְּבִי, יִשְׂרָאֵל, עַל-בָּמוֹתֶיךָ, חָלָל: אֵיךְ, נָפְלוּ גִבּוֹרִים. אַל-תַּגִּידוּ בְגַת [Thy beauty, O Israel, upon thy high places is slain! How are the mighty fallen! Tell it not in Gath] - the word בגת hints to בג' תמוז.
    • Goral Hagra
      • [The verse was הוּא-בָא עַד-לֶחִי, וּפְלִשְׁתִּים הֵרִיעוּ לִקְרָאתוֹ; וַתִּצְלַח עָלָיו רוּחַ יְהוָה, וַתִּהְיֶינָה הָעֲבֹתִים אֲשֶׁר עַל-זְרוֹעוֹתָיו כַּפִּשְׁתִּים אֲשֶׁר בָּעֲרוּ בָאֵשׁ, וַיִּמַּסּוּ אֱסוּרָיו, מֵעַל יָדָיו [When he came unto Lehi, the Philistines shouted as they met him; and the spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and the ropes that were upon his arms became as flax that was burnt with fire, and his bands dropped from off his hands.]
      • [Rav Fish is apparently taking the assumption that the Goral worked, but was misinterpreted.]
      • The word לחי hints to the place the bodies were found חלחול and close to כפר כחיל.
        • [UPDATE: Rav Binyamin Elyashiv himself said that לחי is חלחול.]
        • That is where the prisoners (אסירים) were released from their captivity and they went up to the heavens
        • Also, חלחול is Rashei Teivot of the verses (Yehezkel 36:26) וְנָתַתִּי לָכֶם לֵב חָדָשׁ, וְרוּחַ חֲדָשָׁה אֶתֵּן בְּקִרְבְּכֶם.
      • Although they were buried for a short period in the sand (חול), they merited to awaken Am Yisrael toward Teshuva and to blow life (חיים) and moisture (לחות) of holiness into millions of Jews for 18 (חי) days.
        • As Rav Kanievsky said, that this is a special merit that they had.
    • Condition of the bodies
      • It appears we can add regarding the merit the boys had for 18 days - words that Rav Yaakov Roza Shlit"a, the rabbi of the Zaka Organization, said in his role as rabbi of the Pathological Institute in the Institute for Law Health in Abu Kabir:
        For the first time in my life, I came across such an occurrence where bodies that were lying in the field in hot weather for 18 days and no worms were found on their bodies. I can attest that on the 3 Kedoshim, no maggots overtook them. Besides the gunshot wounds, there were no signs of abuse or injuries. According to the doctors at the Institute for Law Health, there is no scientific explanation for this phenomenon.
    • Hitchhiking
      • The trouble started with hitchhiking [טרמפ], and this is hinted to in a verse that talks about the rising of the Tribe of Yehuda that brings us toward the coming of Mashiah: גּוּר אַרְיֵה יְהוּדָה, מִטֶּרֶף בְּנִי עָלִיתָ; כָּרַע רָבַץ כְּאַרְיֵה וּכְלָבִיא, מִי יְקִימֶנּוּ. לֹא-יָסוּר שֵׁבֶט מִיהוּדָה, וּמְחֹקֵק מִבֵּין רַגְלָיו, עַד כִּי-יָבֹא שִׁילֹה, וְלוֹ יִקְּהַת עַמִּים
      • Rama"z adds that the act of the murdering of the Jewish boys by the hands of the children of Yishmael by way of their perverted version of Hachnasat Orehim (hitchhiking) is not unprecedented, as the Midrash (Tanhuma Yitro 5) tells us that when the Jews were exiled by Nevuchadnetzar, the children of Yishmael gave them salty food which made the Jews thirsty and then bags from which to drink, but the bags were full of hot air, which killed many Jews when they tried to "drink" it. 
    • Geula hints
      • R' M.P. explains the verses (Tehilim 149: 3, 7)  יְהַלְלוּ שְׁמוֹ בְמָחוֹל ... לַעֲשׂוֹת נְקָמָה, בַּגּוֹיִם as follows: יהללו שמו במחול is Rashei Teivot שבי [captivity].  מחול hints to Halhul and is the gematria of בחלחול [in Halhul].  All this is for the purpose of the Redemption of Israel: "To execute vengeance upon the nations".
      • Rav Glazerson's Torah Code - skip of 566 - gematria of MBY
  • Studying Kabbala
      • He quotes Rav Yaakov Tzemah (Kol Berama on Idra Rabba) as bemoaning the fact that very few people are studying Kabbala, and that is what is causing Mashiah not to come.  And Rahel Imeinu is crying over that fact.
  • Computers and Mashiah
    • "Gog Umagog" hints to the computer-related prefixes of "Giga" and "Mega".
  • 5776
    • R' Y. Fishman, commenting on the Zohar Hadash of Balak that says that Mashiah comes when Shmitta and Yovel come together, says that 5776, which is Motza'ei Shemitta, is hinted to in a verse about Yovel: וְסָפַרְתָּ לְךָ, שֶׁבַע שַׁבְּתֹת שָׁנִים--שֶׁבַע שָׁנִים, שֶׁבַע פְּעָמִים; וְהָיוּ לְךָ, יְמֵי שֶׁבַע שַׁבְּתֹת הַשָּׁנִים, תֵּשַׁע וְאַרְבָּעִים, שָׁנָה.
  • Hatzot of the Millennium - Hatzot of the Century
    • We saw that Hatzot of the sixth millennium during 5750-51 contained the unification of East and West Germany, the fall of Communism, Iraq's taking of Kuwait, and the Gulf War.  
    • R' Feivish Zeides adds that also the year 5775 is Hatzot of the century that started in 5700.  There is an aspect of day and night and Hatzot for each century, decade, year, etc. as is brought down in the Siddur HaRasha"sh.  Therefore, we can expect a Gog Umagog War and the coming of Mashiah in 5775, just like we explained regarding 5575 (Napoleanic War) and 5675 (WWI), as they were the Hatzot of previous centuries.  Also, ערב (evening) is the same letters as רבע (a quarter) since the evening applies to the last quarter of every time unit.
  • [On p. 15 of the pdf is a picture from Yated Ne'eman on 3 Tammuz, 5774, which brings down that] Rav Aryeh Finkel Shlit"a, who is in Lakewood, quoted Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shlit"a and Rav Shteinman Shlit"a as saying Mashiah is really on the doorstep and wants to enter.  However, we need to strengthen ourselves and say, "Na'aseh Venishma" and not wait for Yissurim [suffering].

That is so remarkable what Zaka had to say. Can anyone get some of these good and uplifting words to the parents?

We are now seeing and hearing of miracles; now that we are in the heart of the process of geulah. It is amazing to read of this miracle, but not surprising, as only Tzadikim have this great zechut of their bodies remaining intact and clean. Miracle also that they did not mutilate their bodies. ALL MIN 'HASHAMAYIM'.
