American Jews and their leadership are preparing for national suicide. Some Jews are evenly blatantly anti-Jewish. The most primitive of people knows to seek after their own national self-interest – Jews have been have been placing liberal or “humanitarian” concepts over Jewish ones and are working tirelessly to destroy themselves. Any normal people realizes that democracy is made of self-interest groups business, consumers, unions, religions, minorities and their lobbyists looking to get what they want.. Some Jews retain their Jewishness, but are only concerned with liberalism, before Jewish identity and support of Israel, the Jewish State. Will a liberal world guarantee safety for the Jew. There will be no safety for a Jew at the expense of his own identity, its like shooting oneself in the foot. So why is it that certain Jews strive to escape their Jewish identity by becoming globalists and “humanists,” rather than act as a normal ethic people who seek after their own national self-interest ? Unless the Jew stands up for himself, no one else who will. HAVE NO DOUBT ABOUT THIS
A message from A “Mikubal” on what is to come, this man personally told me things before that did come to pass ! I got this Today September 16th 2016
Interesting that the Hebrew language media in Israel is giving more emphasis to the news from the government about the next muslim war against Israel than is the English language news.
If any phrase can be applied to these events about what the political leaders in Israel are doing, it can be termed in English as “covering their tushes”. 230,000 sophisticated and accurate rockets just in Lebanon, as Nasrallah continues to state, to be sent to Israel. And the political leaders in Israel say only a 1 % hit rate? And this regards only their long range rockets. Nasrallah has also many thousands of new and sophisticated short range rockets to be used on the north of Israel, e.g. Tzfat and other communities. A hit rate of only 1 %, nonsense, but at least they are “covering their tushes”! The government has already said they have a plan to evacuate all the north of Israel, move the people into underground garages in the center of Israel. With many thousands of rockets raining down on Israel daily, non-stop, who is to say definitely that there will be time for evacuation? Roads still passable? Enough buses? Enough fuel? The muslims have already said that they will target first Israels electricity generating plants, water plants, communications, TV and radio, military communications and command and control, major roads, oil refining, chemical industries, etc. in their first waves of attacks. And all the while the perfect male of inaction, Bibi at the helm ( I can not use the word “man” to describe such a mere male ).
Taking things in a local context, for the government of Israel to openly admit to the facts, even if understated and to make preparations for its implementation, its a huge admission not easily given, not readily given in Israel.
Not only is all this well known and well described going back as far as several thousand years, including by Rabbi Eliezer, the teacher of Rabbi Akiva, but by some who came after them, including Rabbi Shimon barYochai who describes the times and work of the (first) moshiach in great detail over many pages in The Zohar HaKadosh, etc. All of that points to our times, more on this below.
All that has happened and is now unfolding, its exactly as described from olden times. If that is any indication of accuracy, then what comes next might also be worth considering as meaningful. If recognizing Hashem is not made and soon, then what is written as what is to happen ….. In most brief form, it begins with the total destruction of Israel over 3 wars, with only a few thousand souls remaining alive, the rest are to be killed by Bibi’s beloved “peace partners” and their liter mates. The few who survive will be hiding in caves in the ground for a year, no food, no water, no heating, etc etc etc, and a few thousand others will remain in Jerusalem. The muslims will divide the land with ropes and plant orchards there. What is left of The Land will be under the control of various foreign powers, with them sharing power over Jerusalem. After a year of this, the first moshiach is to begin his work. All this can take a few years to unfold, and after Israel, the goyim of the planet then turn their attention to Jews resident outside The Land, so literally there is no escape.
As to timing, this stage in the evolution of the souls is supposed to last 6,000 years. We are now almost at year 5,777, the Zohar HaKadosh and other sources say that the process of moshiach and revival of the dead takes 210 years ( that number sound familiar? ). So 6,000 – 5,777 – 210 = 13 years for the 3 wars and all the rest that pertains to this time period to unfold ….. Of course recognition of Hashem by the many, Real Tshuva by the many, and Hashem can change all this as He desires. Of course these 3 alternatives are still open and there are the few who always work to help Am Israel, even / especially when there isn’t merit on the part of the many …..
Those who receive my emails on this subject know that the info I’ve been sending out relates even to the numbers of missiles and their locations have been provided long ago…..
Again, all this can be prevented, it requires that our people recognize Hashem – the easiest option. Is this a novel concept? How difficult will it be for the non-religious to recognize Hashem? How difficult will it be difficult for those who pay only lip service to Hashem, giving much more time, effort and emphasis to the words of males instead? And also to mere drops of flesh and blood, often called “rebbe”, or “my rebbe”, or “the rebbe”, or “my the rebbe”, or “my the moshiach”, etc.? All this is counter productive! As is known, Hashem is long suffering “with the stuyot” – “nonsense” of His “stiff necked” ones. But the length of time of “long suffering” does seem to have its limits – which now appears to be drawing to a close.
Just as in Europe when the many turned their backs on Hashem not so long ago, and turned to the Haskallah ( so called enlightenment ) movement instead, even eliminated the daily spreading of Hashems Shefa to the people in the Berkat HaCoheneme, they got what they earned, the Shoah ( holocaust ). They earned what they got, it was not for free. What comes next is also in the hands of the many, same old, same old, or will they do better? Freedom of choice does come with consequences, still …..
Questions on any of the above are NOT now welcome, except on the recognition of Hashem – that is now paramount. Any who prefer to waste their time on the relatively unimportant, please do so NOT involving me in same. I’ve already written much on all the options, preamble, details, sign posts, timing, personalities and so on and so on. Now is the time for appropriate action, even if rather late in the day…..
Best of luck to everyone in their endeavors and in all their efforts, and
Shabbat Shalom to all
” All the nations of the earth shall gather about Jerusalem “. (12:3)
The Radak tells us that they shall be destroyed through this. The prophet Zechariah explains the destruction further:
” The nations that siege Jerusalem, their flesh shall waste away while he stands on his feet, his eyes shall waste away in their sockets, so too his tongue “. (14:2)
Concerning the future of Edom, the inheritors of the Roman Empire, the Prophet Daniel states:
The fourth beast will be consumed in fire “. (7:11)
The prophet Daniel states:
“Egypt will not be a survivor ” (11:42)
Concerning Amon (Jordan) the prophet Jeremiah states:
” Amon shall become a desolate mound. Its villages shall be burnt with fire. Israel shall possess those who have possessed their possessions says YHVH “. (49:2)
Concerning Damascus (Syria) Jeremiah states:
“Damascus shall be consumed in fire, no one shall live there “. (49:23)
From the words of the Prophet Jeremiah we can see a bit of to what extent Jews and gentiles alike are going to change :
” At that time they shall call Jerusalem the thrown of YHVH and all the nations shall be gathered to it. To the name of YHVH to Jerusalem, Nor shall they walk anymore after the stubbornness of Their evil heart ” (3:17)
The Radak says no longer will Yisrael or the nations walk after their stubborn hearts, which refers to the hardening of the heart. Metsudat David says at the Thrown of Hashem Jerusalem they shall see the Shechinah. In the Talmud in tractate Bava Batra1, Rabba said in the name of Rav Yochanan, in the future the Holy One will lift up Jerusalem three parsa high, but the sages say it will be lifted up to the space equal to that which it occupies. At that time Jerusalem shall not be as today. As in the future only those invited will be able to go up. Also looking at the words of the prophet Micah we can see how all the nations come to recognize that Hashem dwells in Israel :
” In the last days it shall come to pass that the mountain of the house of YHVH shall be established on the top of the mountains. It shall be exulted on the top of the hills. Peoples Shall stream towards it. The nations shall say come let us go to the mountain of YHVH the house of the God of Jacob. He shall teach us His ways and we shall walk in His paths. For the Torah shall go out from Zion and the word of YHVH from Jerusalem. He shall judge between many peoples and shall decide concerning the strong nations afar off. They shall beat Their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation shall not lift sword against nation. Nor shall they learn war anymore, Each man shall sit under His vine or Fig tree. None shall make Them afraid for the mouth of YHVH TSVAOT has spoken it. (4:1-4)
The Radak tells us all the gentiles will say to their friends let us go to Jerusalem, and go up to the house of Hashem. The Metsudat David says they will go up to Jerusalem to learn the Torah. The Messiah will be the ruler on all the peoples, and there will no longer be war among the nations, as He will make peace between them. We have seen how all the nations will be effected by Divine revelation, yet even after all this it appears that there shall be a few stragglers Who will need more persuasion as we see in the Prophesy of Zechariah:
” And it shall come to pass that everyone that is left of all the nations Who come against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the living king YHVH TSVAOT , and to keep the feast of Succoth and whoever does not come up of all the families of the Earth to Jerusalem to worship the king YHVH TSVAOT, upon them there shall be no rain ” (14:16-17)
The Radak says, those of the nations that are left after the war will turn to Hashem with all of their Heart. The war will happen in the time of Succoth. The nations shall see the wonders of Hashem. If they do not go up the nation’s land will not have rain.
Rabbi Yochanan informs us in Midrash Rabbah2 concerning the Song of Songs that Jerusalem in the time to come will extend as far as Damascus. allowing room to accommodate many. From the words of the Prophet Isaiah we see that over all the effect of the work of Messiah will be wide spread:
” And it shall be in the last days that the Mountain of the house of YHVH shall be established on the top of the mountains and be exulted above the hills. All the nations shall flow into it. Many peoples will shall go up and flow into it and say come let us go up to the mountain of YHVH to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, and we shall walk in His paths. For out of Zion shall go forth the Torah and the word of YHVH from Jerusalem. He shall judge the people among the nations and decide among many people. They shall beat their sword into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks, nation shall not lift sword against nation neither shall they learn war any more ” (2:2-4)
The Radak tells us all the places where the expression ‘last days’ appears, refers to days of Messiah. Messiah shall rebuild the Holy Temple. The Metsudat David says all the nations will come to learn the Torah. The Radak says Messiah will resolve conflicts between nations so they will not war. The nations will come to Jerusalem to receive the Torah. This is the judgements of Messiah. Rabbi Eleazer said in the future The Temple shall be raised up and renewed. Its gates that are buried in the Earth shall be renewed and everyone will go to this place, and to the gate of the inner court that turned to the east. Rabbi Pinchas said in the future the waters of the well will ascend from the threshold of the Temple they will overflow and bubble over making twelve streams corresponding to the twelve tribes. As it is written ” He brought me back to the door of the house and behold waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward. For waters came down from the right side of the house, on the south side of the alter ” (Ezekiel 47:1). The waters ascended the brook of Kidron and flowed down the Jordan by Jericho. Every field and vineyard that does not yield fruit people will water them with those waters, and then they shall yield fruit. Then the waters shall enter the Salt Sea and heal it. Then water shall then go to the sea generating many kinds of fish and these fish shall be as sweet as Manna. These fish shall then ascend as far as Jerusalem to be caught in nets. Upon the bank of the stream shall grow all kinds of trees bearing every month new fruit. The fruit shall be food, and the leaf for healing. All who are ill who bathe in these waters will be Healed. Rabbi Yochanan says the healing leaves will aid digestion.3 Concerning these waters the Prophet Zechariah states ” It will come to pass in this day living waters shall go out from Jerusalem ” (14:8). Concerning this it teaches in Midrash Sedar Ikerim that twelve rivers shall go out from Jerusalem, all the trees on the river shall produce fruit each month. As it say ” From all the trees you will eat ” (Ezekiel 47:12). In the future Hashem will raise the well of Miriam. During the time of the revelation of this Divine glory there shall be no more wars as the Prophet Ezekiel reveals:
” They that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth and set fire to the weapons and burn them shield, buckler, bow, and arrow staves and spears. They shall make fire with them for seven years ” (34:9)

“To believe that the Temple in Ezekiel has yet to be built discredits the work of Messiah.”
To start with Jesus is not the Messiah , some say he attempted this
What ever the case is he did not do what the Messiah will do. The world is not been redeemed, the work of the Messiah will bring ultimate sanctification to God’s name in the world. This certainly has not happened. As it is written in Isiah :
1. And there shall come forth a rod from the stem of Jesse, and a branch shall grow from his roots;
2. And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord;
3. And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord; and he shall not judge by what his eyes see, nor decide by what his ears hear.
4. But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and decide with equity for the humble of the earth; and he shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
5. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
6. The wolf also shall live with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
7. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper’s den.
9. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.
THESE THINGS CERTAINLY HAVE NOT OCCURRED
The Jesus Idea, trinity and especially the “2nd” coming are all Roman inventions
The most foundational teaching God Gave to Moses and Abraham before him is
GOD IS ONE , only one not 3 in one not …………………
GOD IS ONE
“Hear, O Israel; The Lord is God The Lord is one”
Another major Distinction God taught Abraham , which in his time was unheard and reinforce again at mount Sinai is
“15. Take therefore good heed to yourselves; for you saw no manner of form on the day when the Lord spoke to you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire;”
God is Bigger than all physicality and has no physical representation. As such is the foundation of all idolatry.
The cross and genuflexion to it, is just this
Now concerning your question of the “the prophetic signifigance of the Second Temple.”
Although the Temple had been destroyed and Jerusalem burned to the ground, the Jews and Judaism survived the encounter with Rome. The supreme legislative and judicial body, the Sanhedrin (successor of the Knesset Hagedolah) was reconvened in Yavneh (70 CE), and later in Tiberias.
Without the unifying framework of a state and the Temple, the small remaining Jewish community gradually recovered, reinforced from time to time by returning exiles. Institutional and communal life was renewed, priests were replaced by rabbis and the synagogue became the focus of the Jewish communities, as evidenced by remnants of synagogues found at Capernaum, Korazin, Bar’am, Gamla, and elsewhere. Halakhah (Jewish religious law) served as the common bond among the Jews and was passed on from generation to generation until this day and there has been nothing like this in the whole earth.
The Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Girgashites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites and their cultures have disappeared not the Hebrews, the Jewish people.
To believe that the Temple in Ezekiel has yet to be built discredits the work of Messiah.
And the so called New testament.
As they directly contradict the words of God in the Bible many times in many things from the Sabbath changed to Sunday, to permission to eat forbidden food as pork and negation of the Biblical holidays. Almost all the Holy things God gave to mankind as a gift the so called new testament negates, including knowledge of the 3rd Temple, which fills the images of the prophets who speak of a Temple in the “end of days, which will be rebuilt at the Time of the Redemption.
These verses make it clear beyond any doubt that the Temple described in Ezekiel has yet to be built, it was not the 2nd Temple:
1. And he brought me back to the door of the house; and, behold, waters flowed from under the threshold of the house eastward; for the front of the house faced to the east, and water run out from beneath the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.
2. And he brought me out by the way of the gate northward, and led me around the way outside to the outer gate by the way that faces to the east; and, behold, there ran out water on the right side.
3. And when the man who had the line in his hand went out eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the water; the water reached the ankles.
4. And he measured a thousand, and brought me through the water; the water reached the knees. And he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the water reached the loins.
5. And he measured a further thousand; and it was a stream that I could not pass over; for the water had risen, water to swim in, a stream that could not be passed over.
6. And he said to me, Son of man, have you seen this? Then he brought me, and caused me to return to the edge of the stream.
7. And when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the stream were many trees on one side and on the other.
8. And he said to me, These waters flow out towards the eastern region, and go down to the Arabah, to the sea; and when they enter the sea, the waters shall be healed.
9. And it shall come to pass, that every thing that lives, which moves, wherever the streams shall come, shall live; and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come there; for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live where the stream comes.
10. (K) And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from Ein-Gedi as far as Ein-Eglayim; they shall be a place for spreading nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, a great many like the fish of the Great Sea.
11. But its swamps and its marshes shall not be healed; they shall be left for salt.
12. And by the stream, upon its bank, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for food, whose leaf shall not wither, nor shall its fruit fail; it shall bring forth fresh fruit every month, because the waters for them flow from the sanctuary; and their fruit shall be for food, and their leaves for healing.
Ezekiel Chapter 47
“35. It shall be eighteen thousand measures around; and the name of the city from that day shall be, The Lord is there.”
Ezekiel Chapter 48
This obviously is yet to pass
, May we see these things quickly in our days

UPDATED NOVEMBER 15TH
The Temple Mount
Next week on the 24th day of the Jewish month Mar Cheshvan (Monday) will be twenty years since the death of the Chief Rabbi of Israel, the Gaon, Rabbi Shlomo Goren ztz’l. In these days, when Har Habayit (the Temple Mount) is in the headlines, it is worth quoting segments from his book “Har Habayit”, published a year before his death. In his book, he investigates in detail the site of the Mikdash (Holy Temple) and the azarot (Temple courtyards), areas that are forbidden to enter even after immersion in a mikveh (a bath used for the purpose of ritual immersion in Judaism), and areas that Jews are permitted to enter after immersion.
The time was the days of the second Rabin government, which conducted agreements with the PLO terrorist organization, and handed over parts of the Land of Israel to our enemies. In his introduction to the book he wrote: “Currently, when Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount is in danger, Mount Moriah is liable to become the subject of negotiation between us and the Arabs, and unfortunately, there are politicians who are willing to negotiate our sovereignty over the Temple Mount, relying on the alleged prohibition of the Chief Rabbinate to enter Har Habayit. This prohibition is liable to be used as an excuse to hand over the nation’s Kodesh ha’Kodashim (inner sanctum) to the Muslims. Therefore, I decided to publish the book now, from which it will be proven that there are large areas of the Temple Mount which all Jews are permitted to enter, according to all halakhic opinions, after immersion in a mikveh…”(p.15).
Rabbi Goren:’… the key to our sovereignty over Judea, Samaria and Gaza is the Temple Mount.’
The Temple Mount is composed of two areas. The first, which is the smallest area, includes the site of the Holy Temple and the courtyards, and is called machaneh shechina (the inner azara), which nowadays is forbidden to enter because we cannot be cleansed from tumat met (defilement of the dead). The second area, which includes the majority of the Temple Mount, is called machaneh levia, and it is permitted to enter these areas today after immersion. Indeed, in the years preceding the establishment of the State of Israel the rabbis, including Rabbi Kook ztz’l, instructed us not to enter the Temple Mount at all, for fear that people might go beyond the permitted areas and enter forbidden places.
Three factors prompted Rabbi Goren to permit going up to the majority of areas on the Temple Mount: 1) the precise mapping of the Temple Mount conducted by the I.D.F. Engineer Corps under his orders after the liberation of the Temple Mount; with these maps, it was possible to accurately determine which areas were permitted to enter according to all halakhic opinions. 2) The many testimonies that for more than a thousand years after the destruction of the Holy Temple, Gedolei Yisrael (eminent rabbis) used to pray on the Temple Mount in the permitted areas. 3) The threat to Jewish sovereignty on the Temple Mount.
Lowering Ourselves to the Kotel – The Result of the Sufferings of Exile
The prayers at the Western Wall are a symbol of destruction and exile, and not of liberation and redemption, because Jewish prayers at the Western Wall began only in the sixteenth century – before that, Jews prayed for centuries on the Temple Mount … only about three hundred years ago, the Jews began praying at the Western Wall. And this the proof: in every reference in the Midrash where it is mentioned that the shechina (Divine Presence) has not moved from the Western Wall, and learns this from the verse in Shir Hashirim (Song of Songs): ‘Behold! There he stands behind our wall’ – this refers to the western wall of the azara, or the wall of the heichal, in other words, the wall of the Kodesh HaKodashim, and not the wall of the Har Habayit, which we call the Western Wall”(pg. 26).
However, the intensity of the minhag (custom) based on over three centuries was considerable, and therefore after the Six Day War, the public at large thronged to the Western Wall to pray. Rabbi Goren himself wrote that one of the things that prevented him from acting quickly to regulate the ascent of Jews to the Temple Mount was his being “bound by the ‘chains of love’ for the remnant of our Holy Temple, the Western Wall, where I used to pray every Shabbat, holiday, and Rosh Chodesh evenings. Since my first visit to the Western Wall (as a child), my love and emotional affinity for the Wailing Wall has not faded… “,”but our shout …Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord”… aroused him to become stronger and clarify the heter to ascend Har Habayit (pg. 14). Consequently, he began organizing prayers on the Temple Mount (ibid, pg. 27).
Before the Shabbat following Tisha B’Av in 1967, Rabbi Goren publicly announced a mass, gala prayer to be held on the Temple Mount in the areas where entrance was permitted after immersion. However, by the orders of Prime Minister and Defense Minister the prayer was canceled. A few days later, the ministerial committee decided that the Defense Minister and the Chief of Staff order the Chief Rabbi of the I.D.F., Rabbi Goren, not to arrange any more prayers on the Temple Mount (pg. 29-30).
The order shocked Rabbi Goren, and he tried everything within his power to cancel it, including writing a long and detailed letter to the ministerial committee, in which he argued: How is it possible that precisely in the holiest place for Jews, it is forbidden for them to pray?! True, there are a limited amount of areas in which entrance is forbidden according to the Torah for Jews and Gentiles alike, but entrance to the majority of the Temple Mount is permitted. Towards the end of his letter, he called out: “Distinguished men! Save the Holy of Holies of the Jewish nation; do not hand over the Temple Mount to those who defile it …” (pp 30-33).
Unfortunately, Rabbi Goren’s call went unanswered. Defense Minister Moshe Dayan decided to transfer the responsibility for managing the Temple Mount arrangements to the Waqf, and ordered the Military Rabbinate to evacuate Har Habayit, and not to interfere in matters concerning the Temple Mount any more. Rabbi Goren responded with “rage and sorrow”, informing the Defense Minister that “this, God forbid, could lead to the destruction of the Third Temple, for the key to our sovereignty over Judea, Samaria and Gaza is the Temple Mount” (page 34).
Rabbi Goren goes on to relate: “Whenever I warned about handing over of the Holy of Holies of the Jewish nation to the Waqf, the response of consecutive Prime Ministers was: ‘Look, in any case the Chief Rabbinate forbids Jews from ascending the Temple Mount, and we are prohibited from praying there.” As a result, he decided to write the book and explain the ways, places, and conditions under which it is permitted to enter the Temple Mount (pg. 35). Consequently “we must utilize to the fullest all sides of the heter, so we can demonstrate continuous Jewish presence there, and maintain Jewish sovereignty over the Mount, like the apple of our eye” (pg. 46).
It has been claimed that during his tenure as Chief Rabbi, Rabbi Goren agreed to the prohibition of entering the Temple Mount, but this is not true. In the introduction to his book, he wrote: “During my tenure as Chief Rabbi of Israel, I brought a proposal to the Council of the Chief Rabbinate to remove the signs banning entrance to the Temple Mount as determined by the previous Chief Rabbis. Because there were a few members on the Council who had signed on the ban at the time, they requested delaying the decision to remove the signs prohibiting going up to Har Habayit until after I published the book …” For various reasons, the books’ publication was delayed, and the signs remained in place, “which, in effect, led to the handing over of Har Habayit to the Muslim Waqf” (ibid pg. 35).
Moreover, he wrote: “This shameful situation, where under Israeli rule a Jew does not have the right to pray on the mountain of God, cannot be tolerated under any circumstances. The debate over where it is permitted according to Jewish law to go on the Temple Mount, or where it is forbidden, has nothing to do with the government … These sacred places are not the private property of the Muslim Waqf, whose members have always been a source of bitterness and poison for the Jews, with their incitement from within the mosques on the Temple Mount to slaughter the Jews… had they closed the Temple Mount to Jews and non-Jews alike, I would have kept quiet, but to allow the Arabs to do there as they please while Jews are forbidden to even open up a Book of Psalms and pour out their hearts before the Creator of the world – this is a religious, historical, and legal scandal – nothing short of blasphemy! “(pg. 41).
The Words of Rabbi Tzvi Yehuda HaKohen Kook
Blessed are Those Who Ascend the Temple Mount
Blessed are those who go up to Har Habayit, but only if that is done according to halakha. Thanks to them, our sovereignty over the Temple Mount and all of the Land of Israel becomes clearer, and precisely as a result of this, we will merit security and peace.
In Zacharia 9:16 we find the promise of God to rebuild the Holy Temple in Jerusalem
“לָכֵן כֹּה–אָמַר יְהוָה, שַׁבְתִּי לִירוּשָׁלִַם בְּרַחֲמִים בֵּיתִי יִבָּנֶה בָּהּ, נְאֻם יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת; וקוה (וְקָו) יִנָּטֶה עַל–יְרוּשָׁלִָם”
“Therefore thus said YHVH: I return to Jerusalem with compassions: My house shall be built in it, said the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth over Jerusalem”
The line is the energy feed from the supernal Binah (Emination of Divine Understanding) to Jerusalem, which is Malchut (Emination that spreads out revelation of God’s will in the World, his Kingship) It is the same place as when Jacob ‘hit the place’ וַיִּפְגַּע בַּמָּקוֹם” Genesis (28:11) ” This is where Jacob had his dream and saw the Ladder going up to Heaven, the place is the point where the Line from above meets in Jerusalem. The line = “קו” is found between the first Mem מ and the Final Mem ם.
More concerning this The line = “קו” is found at the following link
In Zechariah 3:8, 9
שְׁמַע–נָא יְהוֹשֻׁעַ הַכֹּהֵן הַגָּדוֹל, אַתָּה וְרֵעֶיךָ הַיֹּשְׁבִים לְפָנֶיךָ–כִּי–אַנְשֵׁי מוֹפֵת, הֵמָּה: כִּי–הִנְנִי מֵבִיא אֶת–עַבְדִּי, צֶמַח.
Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, you and your fellows that sit before you; for they are men that are a sign; for, behold, I will bring forth my servant, Tzemach.
“כִּי הִנֵּה הָאֶבֶן, אֲשֶׁר נָתַתִּי לִפְנֵי יְהוֹשֻׁעַ–עַל–אֶבֶן אַחַת, שִׁבְעָה עֵינָיִם; הִנְנִי מְפַתֵּחַ פִּתֻּחָהּ, נְאֻם יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת, וּמַשְׁתִּי אֶת–עֲוֹן הָאָרֶץ–הַהִיא, בְּיוֹם אֶחָד.”
“For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone are seven facets; behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, said the LORD of hosts: And I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.”
The servant that God promises to bring is the Messiah. The stone is the same stone that Jacob slept on when he ‘hit the place’. It has the connection to the 7 lower Sefirot (Chesed – represents love, giving, or mercy, Gevurah – · Gevurah is sometimes also called “Din”, and means “judgment.”,Tiferet , Tiferet is powers of beauty and balance. , Netzach – , Netzach stands for limitless energy, great quantity, endurance, and victory.,Hod – , Hod represents contained energy that which is clearly defined. It is very specific flow. Yesod serves as a gateway for a certain quantity and quality of these Divine powers can enter the world, Malchut is the Emination that spreads out revelation of God’s will in the World, His Kingship) and it exists on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. God will create a opening to the light of Chuchmah (Divine creative Wisdom) and remove all negativity in one day and bring the final and lasting peace.
Let us pray to have the merit to see the fulfillment of this prophecy Today, Amen.
I suggest reading the full prophecy Zechariah 1, 2, and 3 from the Bible.
PROPHESY IN THE MAKING NOW !
Rabbi Moshe Sternbuch a direct descendent of the Goan of Vilna said
“Even though I am careful not to share the mysteries, I feel that this is something I am permitted to reveal.This was something Rabbi Isaac had received directly from those who heard it from the mouth of the Vilna Gaon, who said, shortly before his passing:
Rabbi Moshe Sternbuch surprised the students on Purim when revealed to them the secret tradition received from the Gaon of Vilna in the context of the event occupation Crimea by Russia , disturbing today the international community.
” Purim is a time for discovering secrets, and I have many secrets I can not reveal them ,” said the disciples , as quoted in a ‘family ‘ , ” but despite what I said I would not reveal secrets , however I must reveal one secret , and that because it is not my secret since been revealed that Rabbi Yitzchak zt member , a student of Rabbi Chaim of Volozhin zt hearing from Gra Zia”a discovered this secret close to his passing , “Rabbi Sternbuch , himself a descendant of the Vilna Gaon .
” When you hear the Russians captured the city cold , you know that start in the time of redemption , and when you hear the Russians came to the city of Constantinople ( Istanbul ) then I wear Shabbat clothes , and you raid them because at any moment the messiah is going to come .”
Rabbi went on to explain that ” last week the Russians conquered the Crimea and the whole world raging around this occupation , and by tradition we have Vilna Gaon This is a clear sign of Messiah .”
Amazing a anti religious secular website like Haaretz published a article stating a centuries-old rabbinical prophecy that appears to be coming true, on March 16, 2010, Israel will begin construction of the Third Temple in Jerusalem.
According to the Vilna Gaon, one of the greatest sages of the 18th century on “March 16, 2010, Israel will begin construction of the Third Temple in Jerusalem…., He said that the Hurva Synagogue in Jerusalem, which was built during his day, would be destroyed and rebuilt twice, and that when the Hurva was completed for the third time, construction on the Third Temple would begin……In 2001, Israel finally decided to rebuild the landmark, which today stands in the center of the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem’s Old City. The building is scheduled to be completed and the Hurva Synagogue dedicated for the third time on March 15 of next year.”
Interestingly, looking at a calendar will show you that March 16 is Rosh Chodesh Nissan. We know that the gemara says in Nissan the Jews were redeemed [from Egypt] and in Nissan the Jews will again be redeemed.
The Hurva’s violent history befits its evocative name. The synagogue dates back to the year 1701, when a group of newly arrived Polish Hasidic Jews led by Rabbi Yehuda ha-Hasid began constructing a new house of worship for their small congregation. Two decades later, the building was still unfinished when the congregation ran out of money and was expelled from the city by local Arab creditors, who proceeded to tear down the incomplete structure. The ruined remnants of the building stood, untouched, for a century, giving the synagogue its name — “Hurva,” Hebrew for “ruin.” Then, in a project that began in 1836, disciples of the Vilna Gaon rebuilt the synagogue. For the next 80 years, the domed, neo-Byzantine synagogue dominated the skyline of the Jewish quarter.
But its architectural reign came to an end in 1948, when the Jordanian army destroyed the Hurva during the War of Independence as part of a larger effort to erase the Jewish presence from the Old City and prevent Jews from ever returning there.
Well it didn’t work, the Jews returned and Hurva Synagogue is almost completely rebuilt.
The Vilna Gaon believed that the ingathering of Jews from the Jewish diaspora would spark the redemption of all the Jewish people in the Land of Israel, and the world would recognize the right of the Jews to a national and spiritual life there. He believed that the return to the Holy Land was not to await the Messianic era, but to bring it about.
Elijah ben Solomon (1720 – 1797), more commonly known as the Vilna Gaon, was among most prominent leaders of European Jewry in the eigteenth century. As a talmudic prodiy, Elijah was given the appellation “gaon” meaning genius. Yet, he was more than a brilliant talmud scholar, and he was known for his great kindness. In study, the Gaon stressed the importance of worldly knowledge in addition to Judaica, and he himself wrote on grammar and mathematics.
It once happened that the Vilna Gaon was sitting enwrapped in his Talit and encrowned with his Tefillin and studying Torah. Thieves heard that there was gold and silver in the Gaon’s apartment. They entered the apartment, and demanded the gold and silver from the Gaon’s pupils. They replied, “We have no gold or silver here.” The thieves did not know that there was Torah here, and not gold and silver. The pupils began to shout, and the Gaon came out of his room, with his Talit and Tefillin on him. When the thieves saw him, they made haste to flee.
The pupils asked the Gaon: “We, too, are wearing Talit and Tefillin – why are they not afraid of us?”
The Vilna Gaon replied: “It is written, ‘And all the peoples of the earth shall see that the Lord’s name is proclaimed over you, and they shall stand in fear of you’ – these are the head Tefillin, not those on the head, but in the head, that a person should not be distracted as long as they are on his head.”
The Vilna Gaon teaches in Kol HaTor (1:2): It is incumbent upon each of us to learn and understand all the aspects and spiritual qualities of Mashiach ben Yosef, that they be a candle to light the way of our steps and accessible to us like a set table, to guide us in the way of action and the particular tasks that are upon us in order to assist the redemption of Yisrael, and bring it speedily.
The concept of Mashiach ben Yosef is discussed at great length in the Zohar and the writings of the AriZaL. It is also discussed in later Kabbalistic works by the RamChaL, the Vilna Gaon, and others. Upon deeper analysis of verses in Tanach and Midrashei ChaZaL, numerous references and teachings about Mashiach ben Yosef become apparent.
I was motivated by the above injunction of the Vilna Gaon to develop some of these ideas and to commit them to writing in English, in order to present an introduction to the concept of Mashiach ben Yosef, for the English speaking public and to encourage the dissemination of the teachings of the Vilna Gaon which illuminate and clarify the Redemption process, which we are witnessing the unfolding of, each day. My ideas are based on the teachings of the Vilna Gaon, which appear in “Kol HaTor”, of Rav Hillel of Shkolov; the Vilna Gaon’s primary student.
UPDATED JUNE 15 2014
When God spoke to Moses from the Ark, there were people standing right next to Moses who could not hear God’s voice. They lacked the ability to “amplify” the sound waves of God’s voice, and “translate” them. The reason we do not experience prophecy today is not because there is no prophecy, but because we lack prophets, people capable of amplifying God’s voice. While God continues to communicate in a myriad ways all the time, we are generally not geared to receive His messages.
When we seek to draw ourselves closer to God, we do it sometimes by removing ourselves from the material world and ascending and we also manifest the heavens here. We struggle to make space for God to be with us where we are.
Achieve great cleaving to God, joining your soul with heaven.
Its written in the Torah :
““you shall be holy” (Leviticus 21)
We must “be holy” in monetary matters, commerce and business. It deals with interpersonal behavior and challenges, with getting along with others in all things. The home, the marketplace, the Temple, the dinner table and the kitchen are all the places of holiness. Holiness is not just for when one is praying and ritual matters. One who restricts “holiness” to specified places, does holiness a great disservice. All life is all-encompassing of the entire Torah. Life should not be thrown together, formless and disorganized, unconnected and even unfocused, but full of the essential wholeness and unity of holiness. Torah, holiness can convert what appears to be mundane to Holy. Know God in all your ways………
Using the metaphor of the the Tabernacle – itself, where the entire structure is holy, but the innermost sanctum is considered the “Holy of Holies,” Thus should be your life. embody the holiness of the inner sanctuary all ways.
The Israelites spent forty years wandering — forty, a number that implies completion and purity. Moses spent forty days on Mount Sinai, there is a minimum measure of 40 saeh (measure) water in a Mikvah (ritual bath). Forty was the number of fruition. During these forty years of growth, the Israelites carried the Tabernacle with them according to these instructions.
The Torah tells us, Aaron and his sons would take down the screening curtain and cover the Ark with it. They would cover that with leather, and then with a cloth of pure blue. The table and its accoutrements — bowls, ladles, jars, tongs and fire-pans, libation jugs — would be wrapped in cloths of blue, violet, and crimson, and then in tahash, a yellow-orange leather of a unique animal. Everything precious in the sanctuary, in fact, was wrapped first in cloth and then in skin, and loaded onto a set of carrying poles for easy transport.
Many of us spend our lives wandering, too, or at least move a few times from here to there. We can cross these physical distances with ease, but the emotional journey of relocation shapes us even so. But physical movement is only one part of the picture. Even for those who don’t move physically, life is inherently a form of travel. Our perspectives change as we grow and mature, as we come to see our old surroundings in a new light.
In the Israelites’ journey through that wild desert we can see a metaphor for our own transformation. Our lives, like the desert, can be both harsh and beautiful. We don’t always know where we’re going, nor how long it will take us to get there. And sometimes the voice of God is most audible when we create our own holy spaces, and when we make a practice of pausing in those spaces, surrounded by but separate from the hubbub of ordinary life. The Tabernacle provided a doorway, a conduit through which our conversation with God could flow. It allowed us to sanctify the passage of time, to repent for our misdeeds, to show our gratitude to the Source of All. These are vitally important to our spiritual wellbeing, both as individuals and as a community. This week’s Torah portion reminds us that when we pack up to leave a place — whether physically or metaphysically — we must be sure to bring our relationship with God to wherever we are going.
After the destruction of the First Temple, the Greek philosopher, Plato, saw Jeramiyah the prophet weeping bitterly. Plato asked him why he was crying over the destruction of something as material as a mere building.
Instead of responding to his question, Jeramiyah answered, “Ask me what is perplexing you.”
Plato asked him several complex questions. Yermiyahu solved them all. Plato was dumbfounded, “I can’t believe that a human being could be so wise!”
Yermiyahu pointed to the ruins and said, “I derived all my wisdom from that ‘mere building.’ And that is why I am crying.” The Holy Temple was much more than a structure. It was the source of all wisdom.
In the days of the Tabernacle we would cover that with leather, and then with a cloth of pure blue. The table and its accoutrements, may the temple be rebuilt speedily in our days. Today we wrap our selves in our Talit (prayer shawl), Teffillin (talisman) and meditate.
It’s said by Rashi that Yaakov went back across the river to pick up the small bottles that were filled with oil for Chanukah that he had left there. It was when doing this that Yaakov came across the supernal angel of Edom (the west ), and he wrestled with him and won at Bait Ael which illudes to the place of the Holy temple. This shows us by the power of Chanukah we can concur the exile of Edom. As yaakov did fulfilling the verse ” I will punish the Hosts on high “. The threat of Yaakov getting the Chanukah oil was enough to arouse the angel of Asev, Edom to attack him.
Another matter we need to look at is what it means to us that on Chanukah that Asev can only be defeated when Yosef is with Yehuda. Yehuda alone cannot defeat Asev. This brings us to explain Masiach ben Yosef and David. Yuhudah is the fulfillment of the letter of the law. Yosef is service of a personal nature, above that which is required. The god of the Greeks was a impersonal unreachable god. To them god was the unapproachable authority. By the service of Yosef one fulfills the words of the Torah “I shall dwell in your midst ” . This is how Yavan the exile of Edom is defeated. One must fulfill the mitzvot regularly this is Yehuda, but not only this but in a beautiful way by this we will overcome the present exile. We see the blending of these two aspects in the mitzvah of the Chanukah manora. As almost every one in Isreal fulfills the letter of the law of this mitzvah, being the aspect of Yehuda, yet in many homes even of those who claim to not be religious we find more than one manora lit this being the “hadar” above the letter of the law being the aspect of Yosef.
The inner sanctum at the first and second temples were built with windows high on the walls of the room. The apertures of the windows will small one the outside and larger on the inside.
When the builders asked “why” of God and their guiding prophets, they were told that normal windows are placed to let the light of the world into the room they are built in.
However the special and highly unique windows in the inner sanctum of the temple were built for another purpose entirely. That purpose was to let the light of God and the Light of Israel out into the world.
This world is a place of spiritual darkness. The light of the God is hidden. Even if the God is infinite people are unaware of its existence, and this is a wounderous thing. We do not see it because we’ve been born into such a time and for generations passing the temple and it’s sacrifices have not existed on the planet. By them the Light of the God became more revealed.
Once it is reestablished and the sacrifices begin again. Concerning this its written The work of the Holy Temple will continue once again as we see from the Prophet Jeremiah:
” Behold the days are coming says YHVH I will perform the good thing which I promised to the house of Israel, and to the house of Yehudah. In those days at that time, I will cause an offshoot of righteousness to grow up for David and He shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Yehudah be saved and Jerusalem shall dwell safely and this is the name whereby she shall be called YHVH is our righteousness. Thus says YHVH David shall never lack a man sitting on the thrown of the house of Israel. Neither shall the Cohen and Levites lack a man before me to offer Burnt offerings and to burn Meal offerings and to do sacrifice for all days “(33:14-18)
The Radak explains “offshoot of righteousness” this refers to Messiah. The Metsudat David says we will call the place of Jerusalem when this prophesy is fulfilled YHV”H is our righteousness. This depicts a little how dramatic this time will be to Jerusalem. The Metsudat David teaches us from the words ” do sacrifice for all days” that there will not be cut off the sacrifice because there shall forever be this service. God will return the Cohaniam (priests) and all their aspects as described in the Torah into action again as in days of old.1 In the Zohar it states in the future the Holy name will be established perfectly united and sacrifices shall be offered to the complete name of אלהי”ם יהו”ה , which was not before as אלהי”ם had no part of the sacrifices becouse the other side would then take part in the offerings.2 The Prophet Ezekiel also speaks of this time concerning the descendants of Aaron, the priests saying :
” They shall teach my people the difference between the Holy and profane, between the unclean and clean so they will know, in controversy they will give judgement, they shall judge according to my judgements, and shall keep my laws and statutes in all my festivals, and they shall keep my Sabbaths Holy. They shall eat the meal offering, the sin offering, the trespass offering, and every dedicated thing in Israel shall be Theirs ” (44:23-29)
From here we see all the laws of the Torah will once again be upheld.
The light of God, the spirit and the blessings we cannot imagine will then once again illuminate a darkened world. A world left in darkness for over 2000 years while we await and pray for the blessings of the Temple and the undreamed of benefits and blessings that it will bring into the world. The light of God who dwells there with his people will once again shine forth through those high and unique windows and bring God’s on light into a darkened world.
We cannot dream what the impact of this light shining forth again must be. We have no practical experience with such things. Yes, someday soon – within our life times if it be the will of God – this light from God will once again go forth and bless the world. Not just Israel but the entire world. What will it do? What will it allow? What will it encourage and what will it prevent? No one knows. But it is a great blessing unto the entire world. That much we know from scripture. But the form and type of blessings it will bestow – pray for it. It’s worth praying for and pray you may be allowed to see it in your time. That temple being rebuilt may be the haven and the link to God that prevents mankind from the utter destruction of the earth that otherwise would happen were mankind left entirely to his own nature.
Pray for the Holy Temple to be rebuilt here – and SOON! If it be the Will of God!
THEN WILL BE THE BIGGEST PARTY !
