The biblical prophesies span all of time, one must be able to distinguish the parts that apply to a given situation
from that which has already passed.
“Gather yourselves together, gather together, O undesired nation ! (this refers to the Palestinians) Before the decree is brought forth, before the day when you pass away like chaff, before the fierce anger of yhv”h comes upon you, before the day of yhv”h’s anger comes upon you. Seek yhv”h, all you humble of the earth, who have performed his judgment; seek righteousness, seek humility; it may be that you shall be hidden in the day of the anger of yhv”h . For Gaza shall be forsaken , and Ashkelon shall be a desolation; they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up.
(Ashkelon shall be a desolation, they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day is describing a time past when Ashkelon, Ashdod and were the oldest and largest seaports in Canaan. Ekron was a Palestinian border town. These are three of the “five cities” of the Palestinians. According to the Book of Nehemiah, the Ashdodites seem to represent the whole nation of the Palestinians in the sixth century BCE. Yet to a certain extent Judgement is falling on Ashkelon and Ashdod as rockets.)
Woe to the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Kherethites! The word of yhv”h is against you; O Canaan, land of the Palestinians, I will destroy you, so that there shall be no inhabitant. And the sea coast shall be pastures and meadows for shepherds, and folds for flocks. And it shall be an allotment for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed there; in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening; for yhv”h elohahe”m shall remember them, and restore their dwelling.” (Zephaniah 2:1-7)
“Nation of the Cherethites” refers to the Palestinians in general. Similarly, Ezek. xxv. 16 and xxx. The Ashkelon here refers to the Ashkelon of Israel today. They shall be comforted by Hashem.
“Thus says yhv”h; For three transgressions of Gaza, I will turn away its punishment, but for the fourth I will not turn away its punishment; because they carried away into exile a complete captivity, to deliver them to Edom. But I will send a fire upon the wall of Gaza, which shall devour its palaces; And I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, and him who holds the scepter from Ashkelon, and I will turn my hand against Ekron; and the remnant of the Palestinians shall perish, says yhv”h God. (Amos 1:6-8) Ashkelon shall see it, and fear; Gaza also shall see it, and be very sorrowful, and Ekron shall see that her expectation has been confounded; and the king shall perish from Gaza, and Ashkelon shall not be inhabited. And a bastard shall dwell in Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines.”
As we continue reading this prophesy of Zacharia we clearly see it is concerning the times of the messiah
“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem; behold, your King comes to you; he is just, and victorious; humble and riding on an Donkey, on a colt the foal of an Donkey. And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off; and he shall speak peace to the nations; and his dominion shall be from sea to sea, and from the river to the ends of the earth.
As for you also, because of the blood of your covenant I have sent forth your prisoners out of the pit where there is no water. Return to the fortress, you prisoners of hope; today I declare that I will restore to you double;”(Zachahria 9-12)
The Radak says people will rejoice when Hashem remembers Zion and Jerusalem. It will be the head of governments. ” cut off the chariot of Efriam ” refers to the fact that the government in Israel will be no longer divided. The “blood of your covenant” referred to here is the merit of the mitzvah of circumcision in exile which helps raise Messiah in His righteousness, and the community of Israel. The Metsudat Zion says the description of “double promise” is describing its doubled nature. “humble and riding on a donkey” The Zohar tells us the donkey here is the nations of the world.1
The Messiah on a donkey represents the begging of the revelation of the redemption will take place in a natural Physical way. As Donkey in Hebrew is the same letters as Physical.
Tanks, armored personnel carriers, artillery batteries and soldiers from several infantry units massed along Gaza’s border ahead of the operation, which defense officials said would likely be limited in time. At a security assessment held at the Defense Ministry, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said that the operation would intensify if the rocket attacks did not stop. “If Hamas does not immediately stop the criminal and intentional firing of rockets, Israel will use all the legal resources and courses of action at its disposal to force the enemy to stop its aggressive and illegal action,” Barak said. Defense officials said that the ground operation, if launched, would penetrate deep into Gaza with the aim of dealing a strategic blow to Hamas. Barak, the officials said, declared during the assessment that he did not want to utilize all of the forces at the IDF’s disposal since it would create “static targets” for Hamas. “We will hit them where they least expect it,” one official said, adding that the artillery batteries deployed along the border would likely be used in the event of a ground operation. “We will need to constantly be moving on the ground to maintain the element of surprise.” The IDF on Monday morning declared the area of the Negev along the Gaza border a closed military zone, denying entrance to all but local residents.
Not long ago, a book came out written by Rabbi Baruch Shapira, zs’kl. During his lifetime, the Tzaddik was not well-known and was nistar (hidden). He resided in Maale Adumim and passed away about 15 years ago. Everything he wrote in the book are prophecies. In his sefer he writes mind-boggling details, written over 20 years ago.
He wrote that there will come a day when settlements in Gaza area will be evacuated and handed over to the enemy. He warns not to purchase homes in Ashdod and Ashkelon. He explains that these towns will be bombarded with missiles.
Many bloggers were quoting various Rabbanim in the recent months claiming predictions of a war that would begin during Chanuka. The most popular one was that of Reb Ari Goldwag of Geula Perspectives quoting Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita though later it was deleted when asked directly if the words attributed was actually said by the Rav.
Did Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita or Rabbi David Abuchazera Shlita of Naharia really did say a war would happen, and later denied it so it would not be publicized and create some sort of chillul HaShem? In any case, a war did begin on Chanuka and it has spread to the South of Israel including Ashdod, Ashkelon, Sderot, Ofakim, Kiryat Gat, Kiryat Malachi, Nachal Oz, etc. and its residents are sitting in shelters. A group of highly respected Torah scholars from Ashdod approched Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita last night and asked him for advice whether they should stay or leave the city. The Gaon Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita told them, “It is best to leave the city for a few days.” The group immediately returned to Ashdod, told others the reply they received from Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita and are hurriedly packing up to leave the city of Ashdod. Also the Belzer and Gerrer yeshivot in Ashdod are temporarily closed.

Independent: Thousands had marched to the football stadium in downtown Conakry on Monday to protest against Guinea’s military junta. Nearly 160 people paid for that show of dissent with their lives, it emerged yesterday, some gunned down in a hail of bullets, other skewered by bayonets as they tried to flee or rescue the women being raped by soldiers in the stands.
As the full scale of the massacre became known, condemnation poured in from around the world. France, the country’s former colonial ruler, suspended military aid and the African Union threatened sanctions. The French also called an emergency EU meeting for today to discuss punishing those individuals behind the “savage and bloody” repression.
Citing hospital sources, Thierno Maadjou Sow, president of the Guinean Human Rights Organisation, told Reuters that at least 157 people had been killed and 1,253 injured in the violence. But, amid reports that the security forces had swept corpses from the streets, Mr Sow said that his organisation’s death toll only included those people whose bodies had been brought to the city’s overwhelmed hospitals.
There were also reports of soldiers using knives and bayonets to finish off those protesters who had dodged the bullets, as well as female demonstrators being raped and sexually assaulted. “They were raping women in broad daylight,” opposition activist Moctar Diallo told Radio France International. “Women were stripped naked. The soldiers were putting their rifles in the vaginas of these women … I saw this myself.”

what about this ?
Filed under: Angels, chassidim and givurot, Divine names, Divine service, Speech of the Heart, Yichus-relation to names
Yaakov Abuchitzera teaches the main thing of
“Avoda” (Divine service) is to join Chassadim (God’s forces of giving) to givurot (forces of shaping) to sweeten them. To have the
“Yetzer tov” (good inclination) dominate the “yetzer
Hora” Evil inclination). Know this and take it to
your heart. The Shechinah is the source
of the 5 givurot which are not sweetened until Z’a (source
of the emotional soul) illuminates 5 Chassadim.1
The main purpose of creation is so that
Yisreal can serve God with their hearts
souls and money, and there will be
delight. Sons of faith who arrouse good and dont hold back their money wrongly
as they know God will give them
more. They set blessings in motion and blessings are set likewise before them. Know blessings
those revealed and those concealed are from מהותו (Divine essense). Love will
arise in thought and by the contraction
the “tzimzum” (contraction) of the light of
thought a place is made for God to
create the world. God attaches a good
thought to action. Everything you thought of
for the sake of your master He fulfills
through you. You will not go from him
forever, but will remain in His image
in everything. You will be concieled from
men in the time of exile. In the
future the world will be fortified by
the arousing of delight from the Nashamot
of Yisrael. “Tzimzum” is from the central point, which is the source of
will. Causing love in Yisrael.
Pushing on the flesh to set limits. The
essence of “Tzizum” is first made only
in thought. The main thing in the
continual creation of the world is the
setting of restraints to flow, limits, and
the love which motivates the flesh. A
supernal love is recognized only from
thought, and is called speech in the heart.2
Rabbi Moshe Deleone teaches that the main
pupose of man in this world is to
fix great things above, and to draw
upon himself supernal flow.3
This flow is given to the world
according to the sparks raised and the
elevation of the worlds such as on
Shabot. It should be noted that when we
talk of the elevation of worlds we are
referring only to the vessels not the עצמות (essence of lights) that are called
The elevation revelation to the soul in
rising sparks and the supernal light
illuminating each accordingly so allowing one
to rise to the supernal palaces above,
palace by palace as there descends light by way of the sefirot. Illuminating the
palace “lavanot Ha Safir”, each person
receiving light according to their merit.
Which is also according to each person’s
“yichus”(relationship). Rabbi Moshe Cordevero
in Sher Kuma explains “yichus”as one’s
personal relationship to the sefirot. There
are two levels of yichus. That which is
revealed, this is the advice of the
king. The second aspect is his providence.
This is revealed to each according to
his comprehension. Yichus is closeness to
divine attributes as one’s own or distance
heaven forbid. The seal of “yichus” is
teferet which is balance upon bina divine understanding and chuchma divine creativity
inspiration. As the “yichus” to physical
desires are replaced with spiritual desires.
The “yichus” to physicality disappears from
our eyes as “yichus” to spiritual
attributes of malchut, ones actions, with
chuchmah and bina consume us. The
illumination of “yichus” of a sadeek (holy man) is
from above. He rules over the forms
that are below his point of “yichus”
through the name elokim, “hvyh” rules in
elokim changing providence.One who achieves the
understanding that God is one, and there
is no other. He can force corporeality
upon the angels, and send them to do
his will. Providence “hagana” is directed
through “sachel Nifradim” (angels) and
through these are directed spiritual powers
that are divine will which are made of thought involved in creation of the world
(such as Divine names ). All things of
(general) “Nahagot” (Divine guidance) are called Atzilut
(world of emanation). It is the Way of God Blessed is his
name and his desire to Guide his worlds
through man. So that God will be
known and recognized by his works. God
blessed is his name makes signs so that
man will know from them knowledge of God, and believe in emunah
(faith). According to the Divine names worked is his work.
All this is called Olam Atzilut. All Changes are not in God, but are according to the recieving vessel.
