Lots of Interesting Geula Info from Rav Zissholtz

(h/t sod1820)


(If I missed something important or misstated something, please correct me.)

Rav Yaakov Zissholtz said the following in a recent radio interview with Yehonatan Dadon on Radio 2000:

  • Rav Dov Kook Shlit"a was asked over 10 years ago when the Kinneret will be full.  He replied, "When Mashiah comes."  (The Kinneret is expected to be full in the coming weeks BE"H.)
  • Rav David Abuhatzeira Shlit"a started greeting people standing up since his grandfather, the Baba Sali, came to him in a dream and told him that the Mashiah will come to him and he needs to stand for him.
  • A number of years ago, a group of great rabbis were sitting around a table in Bnei Brak to try to bring Mashiah.  In the room was Rav Yehuda Ze'ev Leibovitch ZT"L, who insisted that Mashiah should not come since he already went through the Holocaust and he didn't want there to be another Holocaust and if Mashiah comes, there will be a Holocaust.  After Rav Kopolovitch argued with him about it, he stuck to his argument.  Later that year (in 5770), Rav Leibovitch passed away and before he died, he said that his death is so that 1 million Jews don't die.
  • Rashi on Tehillim 47:4 says that Hashem in the future will bring a plague upon the nations so that the Jews are atoned for.
  • Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shlit"a first (in 5775) said that Mashiah is at the door, then he said that Mashiah already passed the threshold of the door, then he said that Mashiah is already here.  He most recently told Rav Chulak that Mashiah is already here with both feet speaking with me.  Rav Zissholtz explains this as various revelations of Mashiah, each one a greater revelation than the previous one.  He says that every word of Rav Kanievsky is weighed and doesn't say extraneous words.
  • There is more than a minyan of great people who have met Mashiah.
  • The Mashiah knows he's the Mashiah, but doesn't yet have the power to act.
  • We are currently in the middle of Gog Umagog.  Gog Umagog is a spiritual war of faith in G-d, which will culminate in a physical war only at its very end.
  • A certain Tzaddik said that this Adar, we will see "Great Things"
  • Another Tzaddik said that according to the current situation in Shamayim, there will not be Israeli elections - rather, there will be a war.  He added that this will be a reaction to the Deal of the Century.  This, however, can change in Shamayim.
  • Another Tzaddik said that all the military operations in the past few years will be a mere sprinkling of what is yet to come.
  • Rav Yoshiayu Pinto Shlit"a has dreams that come true and can be considered prophecy.  His dreams were very scary as to what will occur in the future.  However, there are other great rabbis who are working to mitigate the Din.
  • (As Rav Fish pointed out a couple weeks ago,) a Teimani rabbi from over 700 years ago in the book מאור האפלה (which is available in Otzar Hahochma if you have a subscription, but couldn't find in HebrewBooks) predicted that the year תש"פ would be the year of the Ketz(, based on the gematria of the word "יען" in בחקתי).
  • The Brisker Rav ZTL's prediction
  • If the elections do take place, voting the upcoming elections is only necessary to prevent a Hillul Hashem, but other than that, it's pointless since no government will come out of it.  As Rav Kaduri ZT"L and the Lubavitcher Rebbe ZT"L both said, Bibi will be the last PM before Mashiah.
  • The Geula Watches - after starting and stopping a number of times - have finally struck 12.
  • Rav Ovadia Yosef ZT"L was MBY.  Rav Ovadia said that Mashiah is here and we have to pray.
  • Natural disasters are occurring all over the world, including the coronavirus, fires in Australia, some other disaster that was to occur in the atmosphere is occurring now.
  • Hashem is bringing an end to all the evil in the world.  For example, China is a land of idol worship.  This will bring about a new world.
  • In the beginning of the year, there was a scare of the flu in Israel, but it became quiet.  This threat in Shamayim was transferred to the coronavirus - just as Rashi mentioned above. 
  • As part of this spiritual Gog Umagog, we need to do Teshuva.  And we should definitely not do things that will delay Mashiah's coming.
  • We need to pray, "Oh Heavenly Father, please bring the entire Am Yisrael back to have them do Teshuva!"
  • Rav Yehoshua Leib Diskin ZT"L said that G-d-fearing people will be saved in the final war and G-d-fearing means to separate from the non-Jewish culture.
May the Geula come speedily with mercy.

I don't mean to be pessimistic and I agree that Moshiach is here, but found a lot of mistakes in this Rabbi's speech. I think before the national Moshiach will be revealed, each and every one of us has to become a personal Moshiach for ourselves. Step up to the plate!

Moshiach is coming speedily and soon. I'm not a truly learned person, yet I've increased my Torah learning with 6 chavrusa's per week now.
We are working on multiple areas of Torah and character trait refinement.
I truly want to help others to help themselves. We are coming closer and closer quickly and we really don't have time to waste.
May we greet Moshiach speedily and soon!

Re: what one of the tzaddikim said that there will be a war instead of elections, note what Foreign Minister Katz said:

FM Katz: Elections Could Be Postponed If IDF Attacks Gaza

I provided the highlights. I'm not translating a 38+ minute video fully. Sorry. (At least not for free :-) )

I was joking. No, I'm not asking for money. It's a lot of work to translate the full interview.

I think it would be a great Mitzvah for the person who took the time to translate this amazing interview into English. Baruch HaShem!
