The Malbim on the Dor Haflagah

28 Elul 5774


[Our grateful thanks to Yehudu Yerushalmi for bringing this up and to Dassie for locating it and translating it for all of the readers. May Hashem bring you and yours along with all Bnei Yisrael into the geulah shleimah in 5775!]

Guest post by Dassie...  

Part 1 -- Malbim Translation

With your permission, I took the liberty of translating the Malbim on Dor Haflagah myself. I skipped grammatical discussion as indicated by ellipses.

For clarity, I sometimes use the original Hebrew with an English translation next to it.

I don't have a scanner or else I'd post the Hebrew, too.

Yehudi Yerushalmi was absolutely right about this Malbim describing our times. His explanation shows clearly why a One World Order is so evil and actually AGAINST Hashem's Will.

Some of it was hard to translate because of the nuances of Hebrew as opposed to English and the Malbim's personal style, but I did give it my best effort.

"And all the land was one language and of common purpose [devarim achadim]...."

The event of Dor Haflagah/the Generation of Dispersion occurred in the days of Peleg who was born 101 years after the Mabul. And Noach and his sons certainly had only one language. And they had few "devarim." Sometimes, "devarim" means "diburim/words" and sometimes it means "inyanim/matters"….From the days of Noach until the Dispersion, family life was serene and secure and their needs and assets weren't such a big deal, and their dealings and responsibilities were few and the same, common....And Chazal states that what Dor Haflagah did wasn't clarified. We only understand what their sin was via inferences from their story.

"It was at the time of their journey from the east...."

Then it occurred to the new generation to leave the previous path and family life, which was included in "their journey from the east" – from their previous customary behavior. And Chazal said from the beginning of the world "and they found a plain" – they wanted to settle and establish a large kingdom and live the life of politicians with a king at their head who rules with vast governance. According to Chazal, Nimrod was their main adviser and he caused them to rebel against Hashem.

"And they said to one another, 'Come, let us make bricks'...."

The new innovations began with them building walled homes instead of being tent-dwellers, as they had until then. And they chanced upon earth that was suitable for bricks and also for building material, enabling them to erect buildings easily and with minimal toil. And that in itself was against the Divine Will; He wanted people to fill up the land as was written: "And you shall make the ark with compartments." [Beresheit 6:14]

And then they got the idea to build a large city and to establish a mighty kingdom. And within that kingdom, to build a tower that would reach the heavens – for by then, they'd forgotten Hashem. And they started to believe that their abundance descended from the heavenly fools and they wanted to erect a tall tower to set up idol worship – as if their abundance would descend via the tower from the astrological constellations. Chazal writes that it was a denial of the Supreme Divinity. And they wanted the talismans and the worship they concocted for themselves to include every person, as we see when 200 years later, Hashem was already forgotten from among them. And Avraham, who denied all the idol worship, was thrown into the fiery furnace. And if Hashem hadn't dispersed them at that time when there was no hope, when they said, "let us make a name for ourselves" – meaning that every person will be bent under their authority and forced to believe in their beliefs – in doing this, they denied Hashem and would basically say, "Not Him."

Malbim Translation--Part 2

"And Hashem descended to look at the city...."

Meaning that He saw the outcome that resulted from the whole initiative, from the whole matter of the city to their political assembly; the increase of violence, banditry, theft, and murder among the people; and how both malice and the government of notoriously mighty officials grew more powerful. With the tower incident, they meant to oppose the mighty tower of Hashem's Name. They made a tower for themselves in the name of alien worship as is hinted in "and let us make for ourselves a name." And Hashem saw that they would ultimately corrupt every human being.

"And Hashem said...."

Hashem wanted to stop them from removing the idea of the power Hashem in three ways:

1) They shouldn't be united in their behavior, like two separate nations (as I [the Malbim himself] define "Am/Nation" – meaning, particular customs and a particular ruler). 

Previously, they were "one nation."

2) Nations are separated by language in order to make a division between them. Previously, they had "one language for all."

3) If they still hadn't started their actions when all beginnings are difficult, as indicated in "this they began to do" – meaning that they were already busy with building "and now, it should not be withheld from them?" Indicating that Hashem put a restraint on them.... "He initiated and plotted" is based upon a profound idea of great depth, in that sometimes an issue is too lofty and out of reach. He said that He won't withhold.... that He won't hold the matter out of their reach and they won't accomplish everything they desire.

And therefore, "Let us descend...."

We won't wait until they corrupt every person; we will make a division now between them by differentiating their language....and this is for the general good because a gathering of evil-doers is bad for them and bad for the world. Because they split up and dispersed throughout the entire land, their heresy didn't spread to all the nations. Shem and Ever and other special individuals found refuge in Eretz Yisrael as Nimrod's reign didn't reach that area. In that area, there was a kohen l'Kel Elyon/priest to Hashem Above, Avraham called out in the Name of Hashem publicly, and many people learned from Avraham even as the Dispersion was messing up everyone's language. Even the idol worshiping nations split ways and as it says "chose for himself new gods." And in this way, they admitted that there is a God of gods, a First Cause, and a Kel Elyon.

IT HAS BEGUN!

It's That Time of Year

28 Elul 5774


High Holy Days? Yeah, that, too, but it's also become the time for the yearly onslaught of avodah zarah in Eretz Yisrael. Not that they don't find some reason to come at all other times of the year, too, but the "Fall Feasts" are especially dear to their hearts as this is the time they believe oto ha'ish is going to make a second appearance.

In the past, the International Christian Embassy (which is a made-up thing anyway) has brought upwards of 5000 avodah-zarah-worshippers to Holy Jerusalem. One day of the Sukkot holiday is dedicated to a parade which was initially an Israeli parade, but which was eventually taken over by them (as they tend to do with everything). Except for excursions here and there, they spent most of their time at the Binyanei Ha'uma Convention Center. However, this year, the new Jerusalem Arena (thanks to Hellenist-Mayor Nir Barkat) will be the center of their activities. And something else new has been added - something new and much more troubling.

This year, they are adding an avodah-zarah prayer gathering at the southern wall of the Temple Mount (where Glen Beck held his Jerusalem extravaganza) on the morning of HOSHANAH RABAH!

See Wednesday, October 15th on their schedule here.

And as if that were not bad enough, another high priest of avodah zarah is planning to lead a group on a tour to the "Upper Room" and take in Kever David while they're at it, as well as the Churva Synagogue and then wind up their visit at the Western Wall where they also will engage in their avodah zarah on YOM KIPPUR!

If you give them an inch, they will steal a mile! There is no room in our Holy Land for any Avodah Zarah!!

"Go Up to the Island and Don't Come Down"

26 Elul 5774


BS"D

Communication with Menachem
Jerusalem, 15 Elul 5774

I'm so, so jumpy, so, so suffering, I know that all of you are suffering, too, every real-Jew is suffering. It simply can't be otherwise, it can't possibly be otherwise. The world has already turned upside down. The world is completely crazy. This whole world is a giant hospital for the insane, and like Rav Dessler, ztz"l said, the caregivers are also crazy. The whole world is crazy, the whole world. 

But, still, it's not nothing, it's just the beginning. Because, waiting for us in the near-future is something so hard that it's impossible to describe it. And we will suffer and suffer, and there's just one answer: to hold fast, so to speak, to HKB"H, to this spiritual rope which connects us to Him.

But, the world is full of evil, and the evil is coming out of every single hole. It's a flood of evil in the world, and we, the real-Jews, have to create an 'island', island-of-truth, and go up to the island, and not leave it. Go up upon this island, and build for ourselves real-lives of Torah and mitzvot and good deeds. An island of closeness to truth, to HKB"H.

And then we will cross over the bad, difficult and dangerous water without it reaching us. But, we have to go up on this island, we have to. We have to separate ourselves from the liars, from the evildoers. And we must, must separate ourselves from false-messiahs, and from the goyim who are trying to destroy Judaism, and we must separate ourselves from the Jews, the same Erev Rav who try to dilute Yiddishkeit, whose only goal is reach a situation where there already won't be Jews, chas v'shalom. But, we will remain upon our island and we won't allow any of these things to tire us. And Hashem will protect us and we will get through it all without harm.

And now, we have to begin the construction, to go up on the island, and to build our lives, simple lives, lives with almost nothing, but it will be for us everything, because it will be: us and HKB"H.

But, woe to us, woe to us. What a situation, what a situation, what will be, what will be. How will I describe it...

In the near future, we have Rosh Hashanah, and in the near future, already a bit before Rosh Hashanah, we will see the most difficult things, things that will scare us even more than what's happening now. And don't forget that it's the evildoers, and don't be afraid. Just be with HKB"H. Don't fear. That's the secret, to be with HKB"H - and, not to fear. And we, again, will go up on the island and it won't harm us. What will this island be? The island - it's the faith and the trust in Hashem. And we will build there our houses and our communities. Indeed, these will be very small communities, but it will be the future of Am Yisrael. And we'll get through the time between today and Rosh Hashanah and on every day there will be new news, bitter news, confusing, news of violence, and blood.

But, we will continue and not fear. Because we will hold fast to HKB"H. But, Rosh Hashanah will arrive - and we will cry, we will cry like we've never cried before. And we will cry with many hot tears. And even those who think that they already don't have any tears - it will come. And these are the real-Jews. And the rest, the rest of the 'so-called' Jews, the Erev Rav, they will be cold like ice. They won't feel anything in the heart.

But, we will cry and cry and cry. And we will crown HKB"H. He is the King! He is the King for us, the King! And we will get through the ten days of repentance, again, crying. Again, in difficult news. And then, we arrive to Yom Kippur. And then, the real-Jews again will cry, and they will hear the shofar, and will cry still more. And those who are very much with the truth, will be able even to see Eliyahu HaNavi inside the synagogue, depending on how close they are to HKB"H.

And after this, the whole year will be chock-full of hard things, until we, the real-Jews, will feel that we have no more strength, no strength. But, with G-d's help, we and our families will get through it. But, we will arrive to Purim, and on Purim, this is the time of Haman's fall. Then, the wicked one who was placed over us, he will also go away. He will go away - and not bother us any more.

And then will come the Pesach holiday, and Pesach will bring us to Leil HaSeder and we will sit broken and sad. We will sit beside the table with a few matzot, not much, and we will cry and cry, and we will beg of HKB"H to finally take us out of Egypt. And on the same night, real-Jews will see Eliyahu HaNavi with their eyes when he comes to drink the wine.

And after this, I can't tell much. I can only tell that with G-d's help - motzaei shvi'it Mashiach comes.

Question: What's with the Beit HaMikdash?

Answer: Motzaei shvi'it - it's a whole year. Together with it, I can't tell you a date, I know that we will know, and we will see. And it will clearly be for us Mashiach. What I said to you now - it's only a part, for the sake of giving you a direction. Clearly, before shvi'it already we will see the Mashiach, and there will be the wars, and all that we need to go through after it, but it will give us a lot of chizuk, and already we will see great, huge miracles, I only ask of you, don't break, don't break.

Question: At which stage will be the ingathering of the exiles?

Answer: I can't speak further, but we will see the big things, and we're already seeing big things. We also need to get used to seeing big things, because they're so big that it stops the breathe. A person can die from a heart-attack when he sees these huge things. Therefore, Hashem accustoms us slowly-slowly to see all these things. And we will already see the Mashiach.

Question: About which wicked one are you saying won't be on Purim? There are a lot of evildoers, so of whom are you speaking?

Answer: It's written that there will be a wicked one who will rule here nine months, then we will see his downfall, b'ezrat Hashem.

Question: You said we will be saved, we and our families... Is that despite that in the family are those who are not in the ideal or desirable situation?

Answer: It's not pertinent to what their situation is now. They are victims. But, there are Erev Rav - and there are victims. There are Jews who are simply victims of the society, of the situation. And these children, these people, Hashem will drag them back. They will suffer, because He will drag them powerfully, but he won't allow any Jewish-neshamah to remain. And if they don't have the souls of Jews - then, even their relatives won't miss them.

Question: People are hearing shofarot... They don't want to believe that it's artificial...

Answer: Right, there will be all kinds of false and lying things, because at the end of the thing, the evildoers want to bring their 'false messiah'. So that the whole world will come and will do all that he tells them. And they will do all kinds of 'miracles', but it will all be technology, and not more than that. And the Erev Rav will believe in it!... But, the real-Jews won't believe in it.

But, you need simply to prepare, because right, this that we see them taking off heads in great numbers in various countries at the hands of 'animals-in-the-form-of-persons', it also makes us feel less sensitive to the reality that will be around us, because it's impossible to digest it all at once. It's too hard, especially for a Jewish neshamah. So, slowly-slowly it accustoms us, because even if we don't see the pictures, just thinking about it puts us in these situations.

And it's really very interesting that exactly in these days, on the one hand, these Arabs, the 'wild-animals', these taking off people's heads, and in amazing timing - the black man in the United States is ordering guillotines for the sake of killing people! So, who belongs to which side?... Is it not a bit odd?!... Suddenly, the United States is ordering guillotines! And I really want to know who exactly is the manufacturer of the guillotines. And where is its factory, and to whom else does this manufacturer sell...

Question: We're speaking now about thse viruses in the United States that they don't know what it is...

Answer: Oy, don't pay attention to it... It's to scare people... I will tell you something, I don't believe that they will create bacteria that are capable of killing let's say a million people, chas v'shalom, because it endangers them themselves and there's no control over it like this. But, to scare - they can scare.

And they're beginning to bring out various statistics about the 'ebola', shelo neda. Right, there is such a thing, but I think that the main reason that they're dying from it in Africa - because the filth there is greatest. The hospitals aren't clean, and if they take them to the United States, like they took two doctors who supposedly got the disease, and they came out of the illness healthy and whole... So, what?

And with the 'SARS' in China they did the same thing. Everyone in China went with masks, from fear that they won't be infected. But, in America, a few people became infected from it and no one died... So, that's how it appears to me. But, however it will be - there's no need to fear. Whatever will be with us - it's what needs to be. And if we will succeed in reaching to Mashiach, then good. And if not, G-d forbid - then, in the World to Come, there will also be good for us. But, we're already very close, so I hope that all of us will arrive to the complete redemption, with G-d's help.

Question: In the last years, we saw that every time they did the 'impurity parade', immediately thereafter difficult things happened. In the week ahead, they're planning to go 'impurity-parading' ...in the center of Jerusalem, Hashem yishmor...

Answer: This year it will be much worse, because it is a time that is so close to redemption that Eretz Yisrael can't tolerate it. I don't know what will be - but, it will be something worse than this.

Question: In Netanya, two years ago a synagogue with many Torah scrolls were burned up at the time of a parade...

Answer: Right, it can't pass quietly, but this year - it's a more difficult year, and if it will pass quietly, woe to us.

Question: Also, in the holy places, the war continues in full strength...

Answer: We will pay for it, for our silence. But, not the real-people. Because, now, it's not like the time of the Shoah. In the Shoah, Hashem took the righteous together with the not-so-righteous, and with the wicked. But, now - everyone will be exactly according to his level.

Question: The one goal: to finish off Judaism in the world, by a secret method, and especially in Eretz Yisrael...

Answer: The whole goal of the evildoers is to wipe out Am Yisrael. Because Am Yisrael is like a thorn in their side. Because we are the truth, and they know it, and they are jealous. And they want to wipe us out, these fools, they who could go to war against HKBH, the Almighty, Who created them, and created the whole world. And they're really not intelligent, how is it possible to believe in such a thing?... They believe in the Satan. The Satan - who HKB"H also created. So, what can they do?

But, 'The State of Israel', the Zionists built it with much success, because they wanted to dilute Yiddishkeit, they wanted to introduce Jews to a kind of like type of Yiddishkeit that's completely fake, a Yiddishkeit that 'makes them feel like they are strong' and that 'they are the strongest army in the world' and that 'they're dying for the homeland', and not al kidush Hashem. That they are the rulers. That they are 'the almighty', G-d forbid. And whoever believes in the State, with the lie of all the clowns who are sitting in the Knesset, then he is for sure Erev Rav, really Erev Rav. And all of it is going to disappear. Everything will disappear, all this sheker. That's it.

And also all the 'converts', they have factories, a conveyor-belt of converts, everyone can convert. To be converted and to convert. And that's exactly what they want: to dilute Yiddishkeit.

Question: And we need to understand that if so - our job is to strengthen and to arouse Yiddishkeit...

Answer: We said this, that we will go up on an island with our families, and we will close ourselves, and not allow them. We won't let them. But, there won't be many. Really not many. But, upon this will be built the whole future.

Parshat Nitzavim - Vayelech 5774

24 Elul 5774
Erev Shabbat Kodesh

Parashat Nitzavim/Vayelech - Free Will – Rabbi Meir Kahane

See – I have placed before you today the life and the good, and the death and the evil, that which I command you today. To love Hashem, your G-d, to walk in His ways, to observe His commandments, His decrees, and His ordinances; then you will live and you will multiply, and Hashem, your G-d, will bless you in the Land to which you come to possess it... I call heaven and earth as witnesses! Before you I have placed life and death, the blessing and the curse. You must choose life, so that you and your descendants will live. (Deut. 30:15,16).

This warning was issued when the Jewish People were about to enter their land, to live there isolated from the nations' detestable practices. Unfortunately, even in Eretz Yisrael, we sinned greatly and exile was decreed, such that instead of being a “nation that dwells alone” (Num. 23:9), we ended up among the nations, and most of the Jewish People became like them. As a result, large parts of our people, in effect, lost the ability to choose. The free choice that was their lot in Eretz Yisrael, their land and birthplace, became a farce among the nations where they were conquered by foreign culture; and countless Jews became spiritual captives.

How can we expect Israel to repent as a people when they do not even have any questions? Why should G-d continue punishing His people for so long when not only is the punishment not beneficial, but, as we saw following the dreadful Holocaust, tens of thousands of believing Jews even became heretics? How can G-d draw near to Him a people that has lost its understanding to choose between good and evil, between life and death? Regarding the verse, “Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots? Then may you also do good, that are accustomed to doing evil” (Jer. 13:23), Redak comments, “You have so accustomed yourselves to evil that it cannot leave you, as though it were a second nature to you.”In this age of great scientific and technological advancement, when materialistic, cosmopolitan “realism” makes assimilation seem acceptable, it is clear that the Jewish captive to foreign culture will not improve his ways. Quite the contrary, he marches along proudly, far from the camp, far from the idea of repenting, almost cut off from every link to his origins. He has lost, so to speak, the power of free choice. He who was earmarked to be like the stars of the heavens, wallows in the mire.

The Torah's very defining good and evil in real, absolute terms constitutes a declaration of war against the culture of the nations and the Hellenists [westernized, secular Jews] who adopted it. That culture preaches that no one absolute good or evil can be determined, since all ideas and concepts, including those defining good and evil, are the product of human thought. Both those who deny the existence of a Supreme, Omniscient, Omnipotent G-d Who is the source of wisdom and truth, and those who admit the existence of a Supreme Being yet deny Torah from Sinai, i.e., that G-d set forth a blueprint in the Torah, hold that we cannot attach special status to one “good” over another. Tolerance and pluralism are the ultimate principles of that alien culture. Since followers of that culture cannot determine with certainty what evil is, they cannot eradicate it from the world. Clearly, tolerance and psychological flexibility regarding (almost) all views and lifestyles are their philosophical darling. For them, almost absolute liberty and freedom transcend all else. Included in this is a person's freedom and right to do whatever he pleases with his life so long as it does not “harm his fellow man”. Clearly, this approach is a disgusting philosophical abomination to G-d and Israel. G-d, the Creator, fashioned a world that rests on truth, an exact, defined truth, determined by Him. The world was created to put G-d's clear, precise ideas and attributes into practice, and whoever seeks to differ with them imperils his soul. It is not man who determines his path on this earth. He is not free to choose whatever lifestyle he pleases without facing the consequences – bitter punishment from His father in Heaven.

The Torah treats with contempt the idea of man having freedom over his body and his life. Our sages comment on the verse, “The tablets were the tablets of G-d, and the writing was the writing of G-d, graven [charut] on the tablets.” (Ex. 32:16): “Read not charut, 'graven', but cherut, 'freedom'. The only free man is the one who studies Torah” (Avot 6:2). A person is not free, he is not at liberty to act however he pleases. He is bound by the yoke of Heaven, the fetters of our holy Torah. Only by agreeing to serve G-d and accept His yoke does he become free. This alone liberates him from the empty bestiality which enslaves him to his own needs, to his own selfish ego, to abominable lust.G-d does not recognize man's right to do as he pleases as long as he does not harm his fellow man. G-d established that man's life does not belong to him. Man was commanded to live and given a path to follow. Not only is he forbidden to harm his fellow man. But he is forbidden to harm himself. As long as a person opposes his Maker, he harms himself. He takes his own soul, committing spiritual suicide, and he is not free to act this way. Life itself is not man's personal property. G-d blew into man the breath of life only so he would lead a well-defined life of goodness. As our sages said (Avot 4:29), “Perforce you were born and perforce you live.” If a person says, “Since I was created against my will, if I do not wish to live I have a right to commit suicide,” G-d declares that man is not free either to live as he wishes or to die however he likes. Regarding one who commits suicide, our sages said (Semachot – Avel Rabbati 2:1): We do not eulogize him, but we stand in line for him and say the blessing for mourners, to show respect for the living. As a rule, whatever shows respect for the living we do, but nothing beyond that. Rambam (Hilchot Avel 1:11) and Tur (Yoreh Deah 345) ruled the same way. Thus we learn that even a man's life is not in his own hands, let alone his lifestyle.

A person is granted free will, and he has the right and duty to choose goodness and life and to loath evil, defilement and death. If, of his own free will, he chooses evil and defiles himself, G-d will not help him to avoid evil by closing the door to evil. Rather, G-d opens the way for him to do what he wants. It says in Yoma 39a: If a person defiles himself a little bit, Heaven will defile him a lot. If he does so on earth, he will be defiled from Heaven. If he does so in this world, he will be defiled in the World-to-Come. The Rabbis learned, “Make yourselves holy and remain sanctified” (Lev. 11:44): If a person sanctifies himself a little bit, Heaven will sanctify him a lot. If he does so on earth... That is what is meant by “Heaven gives him an opening”. The more he defiles himself and sins, the more his defilement and sin become habit, and ultimately second nature. All this applies to the Jew, and all the more so to the non-Jew. Moreover, if a non-Jew profanes G-d's name by reviling and humiliating a Jew, and he refuses to desist, then when the time of redemption and revenge arrives, G-d will not only open the way for him to continue, but will even entice him to do so, for his fate has already been sealed. Certainly, if Gog announces that he is accepting the yoke of Heaven and submitting to G-d, and he subjugates himself to G-d and Israel, thereby bringing the world the great and final Kiddush Hashem, G-d will certainly let him repent in this way. Yet, as long as he does not do this, as long as he and the world continue in arrogant chilul Hashem, G-d will set the time for His revenge and, then, will entice him into receiving his punishment.

Rambam explains in Hilchot Teshuva 6:3: [...] Why then did G-d address him [Pharaoh] through Moses, saying “Send out Israel and repent,” when He had already made it clear that He knew Pharaoh would not send them out, as it says, “I realize that you and your subjects still do not fear G-d” (Ex. 9:30); and, “The only reason I let you survive was to show you My strength” (Ex. 9:16)? It was to inform mankind that when G-d prevents the sinner from repenting, the sinner cannot repent, but must die for the wicked deeds he performed previously of his own free will. It was so with Sichon. In accordance with his sins, he was denied repentance: “The L-rd your G-d hardened his spirit and made his heart firm (Deut. 2:30). The same applies to the Canaanites. In accordance with their abominations, G-d denied them repentance until they waged war against Israel: “It was the L-rd's doing to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that He might destroy them utterly” (Joshua 11:20).

Here we learn a major principle of free choice regarding a wicked non-Jew who profanes G-d's name. An evildoer can submit to G-d in one of two ways. First, he can repent and crown G-d King, accept G-d's sovereignty and subjugate himself to G-d and mitzvot. Clearly, such repentance is appropriate and desirable, and G-d will not prevent his submitting in this way. The second way is for him to submit, not out of repentance and acceptance of G-d's yoke, but only out of fear and weakness. Certainly, this does not constitute sufficient repentance from his wickedness and Chilul Hashem, for until he rises and proclaims openly that Hashem is G-d and King, bending his knee before Him, G-d's name is not sanctified in the world. Therefore, if his whole submission is out of weakness and fear, he will still deserve punishment and revenge. G-d will, therefore, harden his heart so that he does not submit out of fear. Thus, G-d hardened Pharaoh's heart, because Pharaoh never accepted the yoke of G-d's kingdom. By the same token, G-d did not let him escape his sin and punishment through mere fear, but hardened his heart, so that G-d's name would be sanctified. It will be similar with Gog, who will stand firm in his chilul Hashem, and the time of Kiddush Hashem will arrive. It thus says, “I will bring you against My land, O Gog, before their eyes” (Ezek. 38:16). [The ensuing punishment and revenge we find described in this week's Haftarah]: “I alone have trodden a wine press, not a man from the nations was with Me; I trod them in my anger and trampled them in My wrath, and their lifeblood spurted out on My garments, so I soiled all my garments. For a day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redemption has come...” (Isaiah 63:3,4) This is the greatest, most terrifying Kiddush Hashem there can be, and it is this which will make all the nations accept G-d's sovereignty.

"And If the Jews Won't Understand the Message..."

I want to tell you all: We have just one thing - and that is, our connection with HKB"H. There's nothing more real than this. Not our friends, and not husbands and not wives, and not our children. Everything varies from lifetime to lifetime. But, one thing remains eternally, and that is - our connection with HKB"H. We are the children - and He is the Father. We are His people - and He is the Almighty. We are just the receivers of the Truth - and everything is from His Torah. There's nothing else.

And that's all we need to learn from history, from Adam HaRishon until today, and until the geulah shleimah. This is what Hashem wants to teach us: 'There's nothing besides Him'! There's nothing. We have nothing - only our connection with Him. Not with our houses, not with our cars, not with our hobbies, not with our job, not with any relative, and not with our friends. It's all temporary and will disappear. What will remain - it's just us and HKB"H. Nothing more.

And whoever understands this, and learns it, and internalizes it, and it becomes a part of him, and he's sure of it a million percent - he gets the most spiritual enjoyment straight from HKB"H. And only a person like this will get through the troubles that will come upon us, Hashem yishmor, in the near future, and which have already begun. A person like this will be able to get through all of these troubles, and come out with a smile on his face, straight into the World-to-Come of Mashiach.

And the remainder of the real Jews who don't feel this, Hashem will bring them to much suffering, until they will understand that ayn od milevado. That's that. "Ayn od milevado!"  And when we will arrive to the world of Mashiach - this will be our life, without questions, without materialism to confuse us. And it will be for us all that we need. But, we will only want our connection with HKB"H. There will be no other goal in life, only this thing: to reach more truth, and more truth, and more truth, without end. For eternity.

Question: The question is, how do we reach this relationship, this feeling?

Answer: I can't tell you exactly. I can only tell you once more: nothing belongs to us - not the people around us, not the relatives around us, not houses, not one material thing, and not one personal relationship. Only HaKadosh Baruch Hu. And if you want a connection with HKB"H - then, please, make a connection. Seclude yourselves, speak to Him. And you see that if you speak and request from Him - there's an answer. And it doesn't take a lot of time until the answer arrives, usually.

Question: Which means that we need more and more to cut ourselves off from other things...

Answer: Detach oneself from all the emotions. Emotions - that's the hardest thing. And it's full of the Evil Inclination, but we need to detach, to neutralize these emotions. We need to love our children, and our friends, and etc - but to understand that this is temporary.

Question: A synagogue was destroyed in the shelling, and also, there were fatalities,  what's the message?

Answer: Very clear. First thing, Tzahal needs to do teshuvah. Second thing, the government needs to do teshuvah. Third thing, all the people need to do teshuvah. To understand that now, they are alive only by a miracle, not more and not less. And if it's a miracle - then only need to say to HKB"H: 'Thank you'. Not to Tzahal, and not to 'Iron Dome', and not to anything. Only to HKB"H.

Question: And the fact that it was a synagogue that was  hit - what does that mean?

Answer: A synagogue - if shrapnel or a rocket fell there - then it's very clear. Apparently, our prayers are not so real. And if, G-d forbid, G-d forbid, the situation will worsen - then woe to us, if we don't get the message.

Question: Chareidim, mostly, won't get the message, so for whom are we waiting?

Answer: I believe that every true Jew - will get the message.
__________________________

The communication continues with Aharal'e:

I want to say that if the Jews will not do teshuvah and won't understand what Binyamin wrote, then Hashem will bring them to this understanding, Hashem yishmor, that they will understand that ayn od milevado. Nothing. And if, G-d forbid, HKB"H begins to show us that we have nothing, just Him - then, it won't be easy. It'll be the most difficult.

I advise Am Yisrael to do teshuvah quickly. All this war - it's the beginning. It's just the beginning. There are still more things that are about to be fulfilled. And it's worth it for us to understand now that 'there's nothing besides Him', that He gives us everything and He's the Almighty. 

And if the government, including the Chareidim there, don't understand this - Woe to them. Woe it will be to them. And whoever believes that Tzahal is "the Almighty", G-d forbid - Woe to them. And whoever believes that the health funds can restore health to everyone - Woe to them. And whoever believes that the State will protect the residents - Woe to them. And woe to us with all the falsehood, woe to us with all the sheker.

We need only to focus on one thing: On Hashem. He's the Almighty, He - and only He - is ours. He's the Abba, He's the Imma, He's the children, He's everything. We are His, exclusively His. But, there are more things that are about to be, and we need to be with Hashem. To be with Hashem. Do you understand?...

I Have Been Given Permission to Reveal to you Future Events

Oy Mommy, Oy Tatti, what can I tell you? I’m sorry that I have made you in the last few weeks a little bit unnerved, but I must admit that the world is changing at the speed of sound, and from day to day or from minute to minute, we don’t know what’s going to be. We used to live in a world that was at least semi organized. We could predict, sometimes anyway, what the next day or the next minute might bring. Today we are all confused, never knowing where another tragedy, Shelo Naida, another bang will come from. Tatti, Mommy, the next few weeks are going to be very, very frightening. The next few weeks will be full of changes that will make our heads spin, changes all over the world, frightening changes and also frightening happenings.

By the time we get to Rosh Hashana we are going to all be in a somber mood, a mood for Davening very hard, for begging Hashem to save us and declaring Him our King. So we must prepare ourselves not to be too blown away by the happenings of the near future and always remember the only way to steady ourselves and keep ourselves in a state that we can overcome spiritually and physically the times to come, is by holding on to Hakodosh Boruch Hu, so-to-speak, holding on to the rope, spiritual rope that connects us Am Yisroel to our Creator. So as I said, in the next few weeks until Rosh Hashana there will be amazing new news for all of us, for the whole world and there will be news that people will not understand. They will stand and wonder what in the world is going on, but as time goes on we will realize what the plan of the evil ones really is.

After Rosh Hashana during the Aseres Yimei Teshuva will be a time of gathering our strengths together and crying to Hashem like we have never cried before. By the time that Yom Kippur comes around, I’m afraid that our tears might have been spent already from worrying what’s going to be, and we will try to squeeze out a few more in order to try to save ourselves. By the time Succos comes we will be quite worn out for our efforts, and I believe that Succos, at least for a short time, will bring a semblance of balance, a semblance of joy in the Yom Tov, but Simchas Torah will bring us back to the cruel reality, and we will dance with the Torah with tears in our eyes. We will hold the Torah close to us so it can’t separate from us, so we won’t separate from it. We will dance and we will dance and we will beg Hashem through our dancing to always keep us close to Him, and we will keep the Torah close to us, and when Simchas Torah is over the real wars will begin.

Am Yisroel you know that there is something in my words. In the last two or three years you have seen such crazy tragic things happening. We know that the world has become an insane asylum and as Harav Dessler put it the people taking care of the inmates are the inmates themselves. So it’s a world of the mentally ill. There are some Jews which do try to separate themselves from the Sheker, from the lie and on those few Jews the world of the Geula Shelaima will be built by Hashem. We Am Yisroel must hold on and never let go.

We will go farther. After Succos, Simchas Torah the world will become so so different, so horribly different that it will be absolutely unrecognizable. The only thing we will recognize is our Kesher with Hashem. The only thing that will be real will be our Kesher with Hashem, His Torah, and His Mitzvos.

Am Yisroel, the ones in Chutz La'aretz, the ones outside of Eretz Yisroel, pack your bags if you can. Pack your bags and come. Do so. It’s not an Aveirah. Coming to Eretz Yisroel is a great Zechus, but don’t come if you don’t really want to go higher in your Yiddishkeit. Don’t come just to save your lives, because it won’t work. You have to believe, believe that Hashem is Hakol Yachol. Ain Od Milvado. You have to believe it with all your heart and your soul. You have to believe that there is nothing greater than our Torah. You have to believe that Moshiach is going to come and there is going to be Techias Hameisim and you have to believe in every single one of the Yud Gimmel Ikrim. You must believe in that. That is your ticket to eternity. You must with all your heart and soul believe in it.

After Simchas Torah there is going to be a giant Birur and that Birur is going to be very hard, but it won’t be hard for those who understand the Truth, for those who cling to Hashem, for those who cling to the Truth. It won’t be hard. So please Am Yisroel please, please if you feel up to it, if you feel that you want to rise spiritually, come to Eretz Yisroel, not Medinas Yisroel, that’s going to fall very soon, but Eretz Yisroel, come to Eretz Yisroel, and even though it could be very difficult and even though you don’t know where you are going to live and even though you don’t know where your income will come from, still you are better off here than there if you truly want to be close to Hashem. If you truly want, for spiritual reasons to come close to Hakodosh Boruch Hu, to actually greet Moshiach Tzidkainu then come to Eretz Yisroel now. Anyone with Gashmiusdik ideas about the Geula, forget it. Stay where you are.

I also want to reiterate that every Jewish soul will be saved. Every Jewish soul that stood at Har Sinai and said Na’ase Venishma, we will do and we will say, every Jewish soul will be saved. Hashem will make sure that even if a Jew thinks he doesn’t accept Emes, in the end he will. Hashem will force him to accept Emes, and he will become a great believer, but he will suffer on the way, but those who are close already, those who believe with all their hearts and souls in Hakol Yachol, in Hakodosh Boruch Hu, in the Ribbono Shel Olam, they will not have difficulties almost at all. It might be frightening to see what’s happening, but they themselves will not suffer. So Am Yisroel, we are coming to Rosh Hashana. Please do Teshuva. Please do Teshuva now. Get your heads straight. Get your minds on the right things. Teach your children how to react when the terrible wars really start. They have started already, but the really bad part is soon to come. Teach your children how to hold on to Hashem. Teach your children what reality is, what the Geula Shelaima means, what the Bais Hamikdosh means, what the Korbanos mean. Teach them not to be afraid because Hashem is Hakol Yachol. He took us out of Mitzrayim, which was an amazing, amazing Ness, and He will take us out of this terrible, terrible Golus and bring us to the Geula Shelaima.

I want to tell you something else Mommy and Tatti. I love you all very much. I know how much you are doing for me and how you care for me. I know I sometimes make you both a bit upset with my moods. I go a bit crazy myself with the double life that I have been living. One part of my life, a little boy with little boy needs, and the other part of my life I am a greater person a much more adult person. So please I ask you Mechila for anything I have done to make it difficult for you and tell you how much I appreciate how you’ve taken care of me, and how I imagine you will continue to take care of me up to when Moshiach comes. At that time I won’t need your help anymore, Be’ezras Hashem. I know that very soon we are going to see the Truth. So don’t get discouraged and don’t get taken down. Just know that all of our troubles are going to disappear and really you shouldn’t be worried about all these things that are happening in the house, buying and selling apartments, taking care of me, and all the other grandchildren who have this problem, that problem, or the other problem, or my aunts and my uncles that have all kinds of problems. Just know that it’s almost over, almost over.

To Am Yisroel I want to tell you that when we come to Chanukah we are going to have very great spiritual happenings that will remind us of the Maccabim, that will remind us of our greatness, will remind us of our Bais Hamikdosh, even though we will be very frightened and we will be such a tiny little group surrounded by huge amounts of wild people with terrible weapons, but still our hearts will be full of joy because we will feel again what the Maccabim felt even though we will be terribly afraid. It will seem impossible to ever get out of that situation, but Hashem will help us and we will, and after that will come Asara B’teves and we will mourn like we never mourned before. We will cry and beg like we never did on Tisha B’av, beg and beg Hashem to rebuild our Bayis our Bais Hamikdosh, and not let the Goyim do the most outlandish thing of destroying the Dome of the Rock and instead building Chas Veshalom there a temple to the Avodah Zorah of their new Religion Chas Vesholom, Yemach Shemam Vezichram. That is their plan to build on top of Har Hamoriah, Har Habayis a temple to the Avodah Zorahs, the worst Avodah Zorahs.

Then we will come to Purim and we will beg Hashem to save us from Haman and we will have a Haman here, a Haman that we will have to be saved from and we will have to fight, fight our fears, beg Hashem to save us from this awful terrible horrific person and his armies and his police. We will have to beg very hard. Hashem will save us.

He will save us, and then will come Pesach and we will be a tattered bunch of tired people when we sit around the Seder table, with Matzoh and wine miraculously provided for us by Hashem and we will beg Hashem to save us. We will beg Hashem. We will beg Hashem to bring the Geula Shelaima. On Shvii Shel Pesach we will hear the Shofar. We will hear the Shofar and on Leil Haseder each house will see Eliyahu Hanavi, all the Jews that are Emesdik will see him and it will give us strength, but it still won’t be the time of redemption. I can’t go on farther than that to explain, but when we see Eliyahu Hanavi we will know that very soon this terribly long Golus will be over, and we will be finally free. From that moment on, there will be more and greater wars. There will be false prophets and false messiahs, but we will hold on to Hakodosh Boruch Hu and to the seed of Dovid Hamelech, to our Moshiach Tzidkainu, our true Moshiach. He will reveal himself and we Motzai Shviis will walk into the Bais Hamikdosh and be Makriv Korbonos and be happy and be dancing with the greatest joy ever felt in the whole world, even though around us two thirds of the world will have been destroyed, and very few Yidden and even fewer Goyim will survive.

I have been given permission to reveal to you these future events in order to give Am Yisroel strength and courage to get through these very difficult times. I beg Am Yisroel from the bottom of my heart to feel that every Jew is responsible for the other Jew. Every true Jew feels responsibility for another Jew, feels that he wants to do Chessed for another Jew. That’s how you know he’s really a Jew. I love Am Yisroel so much that just saying it makes me cry, and I beg you please make it easy on yourselves. Come back to Hashem. Take away the Gashmius which is so senseless, all the toys, all the adult stupid toys, all the videos, all the things that make us waste our time and instead put our efforts into growing spiritually. The best way to grow spiritually is when times are difficult. We don’t want times to be difficult, but we must use the future hard times to help us grow. Please let us put our hearts and our souls and our strength, into growing even though around us will be death and destruction. Please keep growing. Please keep coming closer and closer to Hakodosh Boruch Hu.


Q: Do we have to be afraid of the ISIS?

A: That group of murderers were created by the Reshoim to frighten the world. They have no real tangible strength. It’s all a farce and the Europeans definitely don’t want them around and probably will try to get rid of them as fast as possible. However they will go underground and they will cause destruction in the world because they as individuals can blow up hundreds of places in Europe, America, not only the Mideast. As an army they aren’t an army. They are just a group of vicious people. They are using the scare tactics of chopping peoples’ heads off, Lo Aleinu, or murdering them in other terrible ways to make people afraid, but don’t pay attention to them. It’s all not something real. Yes people are killed and they are very vicious, but they have no strength and Hashem will destroy them.

There is nothing to add right now. I’m giving you kind of a preview. Up to now we the autistics, have written many things and they’ve all come true, however, we never really gave a timeframe because people still had to schlep through many years without this kind of Chizuk. There was no point in giving a timeframe, because people would say, “Oh well we still have ten years, so let’s just party until then. We have time to do Teshuvah!” There’s no time now, so let’s do it now now, now!

There is one more thing I want to say. In the next near future the State of Israel, the Medina is going to crumble. It’s already crumbling from its own decadence. That is what’s going to happen IY”H. Very soon the chaos is going to rage here until the Goyim take over. Then Moshiach will take control from the Goyim and the Geula Shelaima will begin Be’ezras Hashem.

I don’t have anything else to write now.
