In response to my post on the autistic messages, a commenter wrote:

and in a few months the big change was to come, which seems to include entire countries erased from the map. and in the same FC, he says that THIS year, 5768, will be the year. This was to get people started on ketz-ism again, and indeed, I know people who looked at the next Rosh Hanashah as an end-time as a result.
In 5768, the date Daniel set, did something occur? "
My response follows.
Commenter: "...they are contrasting what they said previous to what they are saying now. in the past fourteen years, says Abba, they never set a date. but NOW, in 2007, Binyamin was saying 'in a few months'."
This is the claim of the interviewer, Daniel's father. It's important because it proves that until then no date had ever been set. What is critical is to identify what was supposed to happen "in a few months."
"...in a few months the big change was to come, which seems to include entire countries erased from the map."
Ok, a "big change was to come", which it did by the way, and I like your use of the word "seems" because even you admit that there's a question whether Daniel actually said this or not. In fact, he didn't. It's clearly what his father wanted to hear, but Daniel did not confirm it.
"...and in the same FC, he says that THIS year, 5768, will be the year."
The year of the "big change" which saw the collapse of America's housing market which was the beginning of the complete collapse of the entire world economy. That counts as a "big change" in my book.
From the page of Daniel's bok that you reference---
(Binyamin Golden)"...there is just one more thing to say this week, before Rosh Hashana.
This week the situation will worsen. It will get worse. On the face of things this may not appear to be the case but underneath the surface it can definitely be felt. The world is getting ready for some big changes."
That week, the following occurred:
1. A category five hurricane made landfall on the Yucatan peninsula.
2. The first large stock market losses were recorded.
3. There is a 6.5 earthquake offshore of Taiwan, a 6.8 earthquake off the coast of Colombia, and an 8.4 off Sumatra.
4. There is a run on the North Rock Bank in the UK.
5. Wildfires force the evacuation of thousands of residents in southern California.
6. Floods in Ghana displace 260,000 people.
"...there are going to be great wars soon. Every place on Earth will be at war. Israel will not be destroyed, but many countries will vanish from history, including the residents."
No end time is set for this to happen.
"If the people do not repent before Rosh Hashanah...
This is going to be the biggest Rosh Hashanah in history, the most significant in all of history. If the people do not repent this Rosh Hashanah, woe to everyone."
Meaning, not that all of this will occur in 5768, but that without real teshuva to bring redemption immediately, we would then be set on a path of slow destruction which would BEGIN in 5768 and which we have seen with our own eyes get worse and worse.
The lesson from all this is that we have to read carefully and critically and not read into what is said, what we want to hear. People wanted to think 5768 would be the end, but instead what we were being told is that this would be the beginning of a very bad end.
As we know now, Rosh Hashana 5768 was a major turning point in the geula process. With our teshuva we could have mitigated all the horrors that have occured since then. But here we are three years later and the world economy has all but collapsed, the US is bankrupt, the entire world has been inundated with floods, fire, ice, landslides and earthquakes. The world has been on the very brink of a nuclear holocaust because of the two Koreas. Iran has their bomb. Lebanon is teetering on the edge of a Hizbollah takeover. And China is flexing its military muscle. Food prices have risen astronomically because of weather woes and major shortages are in the offing.
Has the world undergone significant changes since 5768? Yes or no?
Because of our own stubborness, our own rebellion in refusing to repent of our many sins, this is the result.
"This is going to be the biggest Rosh Hashanah in history, the most significant in all of history. If the people do not repent this Rosh Hashanah, woe to everyone. Woe to all those who think this is a joke, woe to all those who don't want the extreme side of Judaism, woe to all those that think they can live in both worlds; in the materialistic world as well as the spiritual world. Woe to the Jewish people, the chosen nation, beloved to Hashem.
This is truly the Day of Judgment; the Day of Judgment for the whole world, as it is every year, but this year, we are coming upon the greatest change ever, since the exile from Egypt.
This is why the stars, the weather, the sky, the earth, the sea, and all the living beings within are preparing and are ready for the big change. Only the humans are still stuck inside of their eggs and caught up with their lies. If real teshuva is not done - those who do not truly repent will disappear. [Me: Not immediately, but at the end of the process.]
Imagine to yourselves that we are standing by Mount Sinai and Hashem is raising the mountain. If we don't repent, Hashem will lower the mountain on top of us. This is exactly the situation we are in now.
Question: That is repenting out of fear.
Answer: Yes, this is repentance out of fear, but there are also enough people that don't need the mountain held above them. The majority of the people need the mountain. Very few repent out of pure love for Hashem and because of the agony they feel from the separation between them and Hashem."
Weeks of torrential rains have resulted in floodwaters which have created an "inland sea" that is traveling through Australia leaving death and destruction in its wake. Not scary enough for you yet? Just wait! Hashem have mercy!
