Lipi's Message - "I am very sad"
14 Elul 5771
I am very sad. Very sad that in days so difficult and dangerous, the Jews are busy with disputes. The Jews are busy with falsehood. The Jews are busy with severe sins. The Jews are busy with the Golden Calf, with the lusts and materialism of the Egel. I am sad, very, very much, that Am Yisrael doesn't understand that this is the end, that we are standing before a very huge and difficult war, not only in Israel, but also the world.
The changes in This World in all of this world, from two years ago, are really astonishing. Changes that are hard for us to digest. And there is, for the majority of the people in the world, a will not to believe that the world, in fact, is not the same world it was ten or twelve years ago.
We, the Jews, are standing before a huge birur - a clarification. Also, the whole wide world stands before a huge birur. But, especially important to me - the Jews.
And the Jews, in general, the majority, don't want to believe that the end has arrived. Like two thousand years, approximately, we have been wandering around the world, in exile, sometimes living in a very good way, materialistically, and sometimes a life in a situation of very high spirituality, but usually, the two don't go together. And therefore, the situation today is one of materiality. And there are very many Jews who are of the opinion that the materialism and spirituality can co-exist. But, that can't be. Materialism and spirituality, which is closeness to Hashem, cannot co-exist. Under absolutely no circumstances. And now, at this moment, without waiting, every Jew must choose. Whether he wants the materialism or the spirituality. But both of them, impossible. They must choose only one from the possibilities. And materialism is not only silver and gold, it's also faith in other powers, foreign powers. And this is to believe in low powers. But, there are Jews who believe that low powers have like saved them. (i.e. IDF, American political support, etc.)
And spirituality is closeness to the Holy One, blessed be He. And to live a life of spirituality - that is to say, to live all the time the will of Hashem, every day and every night and all your life. If he is a spiritual person - that's what there is in his head.
And now will be the big choice, this Rosh Hashanah. Every Jew is choosing where he wants to be. Whether he wants to be with the Golden Calf, which means the death of spirituality and materialism forever, G-d forbid, or whether he wants spirituality, which is proximity to Hashem forever. [I Kings 18: 21 - "And Elijah drew near to all the people and said, 'Until when are you hopping between two ideas? If the Lord is God, go after Him, and if the Baal, go after him.'"]
It's the end, it's the end. We are drawing near the end at the speed of lightning. Many Jews have awakened from their slumber. And every one who chooses materialism and distance from HKB"H, suddenly at the end, he will understand that maybe, actually, not maybe - of course, that he made the biggest mistake of his life, And this he will understand at the end before death, and then he will die, G-d have mercy.
I very much warn all the believing Jews about lashon hara. Because slander is possible, G-d forbid, to bring down the holiness from Am Yisrael. Woe to you, woe to you. The punishment is too great even to explain to you.
I bless all the Jews for a good year, a year of redemption and salvation, that every Jew and Jewess, boy and girl, will receive our righteous Mashiach in mercy and joy.
[Quoting tractate Chovot Halevavot... "Love of this world and love of the world to come, they are two problems, one to the other. Fire and water, that can't co-exist."]
