Gog and Magog–If you want it, it’s yours!

Rav Mordechai Eliyahu

Rav Mordechai Eliyahu ztz”l used to say that the Holocaust was the War of Gog and Magog, as it is written in the Gemara that the Holy One Blessed Be He could consider Hezkiya to be Mashiach and Sancheriv as Gog and Magog, but the sin caused this not to be so (Sanhedrin 94).

If so, it’s possible to consider the Holocaust as the war of Gog and Magog.  We have suffered enough.


Rav Eliyahu related that someone argued on his view and said that his words were not correct and that the War of Gog and Magog will be coming in the future, and he brought all types of proofs that it had not yet occurred.

The Rav told him: “Whoever thinks that there needs to be a War of Gog and Magog will be in this war, while those who hold that it has occurred already will be exempt from it.”

Doomsday: It Isn’t Really Doomsday At All

Posted in geulah, Moshiach, Vision of Geulah on January 13, 2012 by Vision of Geulah

It sounds very dramatic: “DOOMSDAY” (!) — and it seems to fit the description.

But…it isn’t really Doomsday at all. (Sorry to disappoint…)

When children go to the “Haunted House” at the amusement park, they get scared.  The parents are not scared. And in the end, nobody is touched, even not a hair on the head.

There is no “safe place” because every Jew is inherently safe.  The question is:

Is our trust in the Almighty G-d like that of a child, or like that of a parent?

Each one’s outlook will determine his or her view,

either

Doomsday!

the (gasp) "Doomsday Experience"

or

Geulah!

the (ahhh) Coming of Mashiach Experience!

Whichever the case, every Jew will come out untouched, awakening to the light of the long-awaited redemption.

But the Holy One, blessed be He, is helping us to grow out of being children. The posts on this site are intended to be a contribution in that direction: knowing what to expect is a big part of the difference between the child and the parent (the other part–bigger and far more important–is knowing Who is really in control and trusting in His benevolence).

The seemingly physical walls of this world of exile and lies will fall, we must know that we are not falling with it.

Be happy–the “Doomsday” of the world of lies is the liberation of truth and the Holy Nation!

CHAZAK!

…to be continued…

“Doomsday”: The Tremblings

Posted in Vision of Geulah on January 11, 2012 by Vision of Geulah

The world will tremble.  It has already begun, and will increase. Those who say so are correct.

Earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, you name it.  One here, one there, another someplace else.  The pace will increase.  But casualties will not be enormous. Chesed Hashem–this is Geulah, after all!

Don’t waste your time on “earthquake watch”, the “volcano watch”:

This doesn’t bring Mashiach.  

Learn Torah, do good deeds–this brings Mashiach.

The pace of “tremblings” will increase until “the entire world will shake and all world will hide themselves in caves and clefts in the rocks, and they won’t think to be saved.” (Zohar Shemot 7a)

(There is a place on earth where these tremblings will not be felt, but there is no purpose to publicize it.)

Seeing Stars

Posted in Vision of Geulah on January 4, 2012 by Vision of Geulah

Read the post of references to the Zohar here.

It describes a “Star War”: 1 star from the East warring against 7 stars.  The earth trembling and quaking, fire from beneath the ground.

As they say, “It’s all good”.

2012: Truth Behind Doomsday?

Posted in Vision of Geulah on January 3, 2012 by Vision of Geulah

The people of the world lately celebrated “Happy New Year”.   It is now, as is written on the calendars, the year they refer to as 2012.  (Since Creation, it is already the year 5772, however.)

According to R’ Google, the year 2012 goes very well with the word “Doomsday”.

DOOMSDAY??!!!!

First of all, relax.

But everything is by Divine Providence Hasgacha Pratit and if the world is buzzing about the End, we have to look in Torah (and especially the Zohar, as we will see) to see if there is any message of truth here.

What does 2012 have to do with Mashiach?

What does “Doomsday” have to do with the final Redemption?

Stay tuned.

Mashiach: Each Our Own Lag B’omer

Posted in Vision of Geulah on May 18, 2011 by Vision of Geulah
Lag B’omer is the celebration of the joy of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai’s hilula.

It is like the resurrection of the dead.

When Mashiach comes (very soon) we will all have our own hilula, our own “wedding” with Hashem, our own resurrection of the dead.

Why the bonfire?

Rabbi Shimon reached the level of Mashiach.  The “skin of the snake” fell off, the “garments of skin”, and he received his “garments of Light” like Adam before the sin.  (Not physical light, of course.)  There is a “garment of Light” waiting for you and me, too.  Soon our “skin of the snake/garments of skin” will too fall off, replaced by our Divine “garment of Light”, and we will also have our own Lag B’omer to celebrate, along with our own bonfire!

Perhaps this explains the custom of the holy tzaddik the Ohr Hachayim: on Lag B’omer he would throw expensive garments into the burning bonfire. Shedding the skin of the snake and accepting the garments of Divine Light!

Binladen Gone From the World

Posted in Vision of Geulah on May 3, 2011 by Vision of Geulah

This evil man is gone from the physical world.  This could only occur if he encountered defeat in the spiritual realms.  This is good.

We are in the days of Mashiach.  The world looks “natural” but many things are happening spiritually that were blocked from happening for thousands of years.

Seize these precious moments–for they give us the ability to reveal the Mashiach, whom we know and love.
