World War 3
Rosh Chodesh Kislev 5772
World War 3 - they’re talking about it everywhere today. In all the newspapers, headlines are blaring: “War, War,” and with all this, we, the Jews, still continue life as usual. The seculars continue with their tiyulim even though the economic situation is difficult, and the chareidim continue with their wars. Every day fighting against each other, and recently even in a very violent way. What more can I say?
I sit and I think about it. I think about Jews with peyote and beards, who lay tefillin every day, and pray three times a day, usually; who keep mitzvot, more or less, and raise families of many children. On one hand, they sacrifice much for their Yiddishkeit, very much. On the other hand, they run after the golden calf. [I Kings 18:21 – “Until when are you hopping between two ideas?”]
What is the difference between us and the generation before the destruction of the First Temple? What is the difference between us and the generation before the destruction of the Second Temple that had within them talmidei chachamim and they learned much Torah? [See reference original.]
In the First Temple, the sins were clear, because it was bloodshed, incest and idolatry. In the Second Temple, it was different, because they learned Torah and kept mitzvot and overall, on the surface, the majority was righteous. But, it did not prevent the destruction of the Temple. And also, with us, we see that we learn and learn; there are supposedly ‘righteous,’ tzadikim who learn day and night, who don’t work, only learn; their women work so their husbands can learn. And with all this, we also have the disadvantages and the sins of the two generations who were before the destruction of the Temples.
And we, also, are standing before a great disaster. But, it’s a disaster not only for us, but for the whole world. It’s correct that we don’t need to pay attention to newspapers, but when all the newspapers in the world are shouting ‘War!’ shouting ‘End of the World!’ shouting ‘World War Three!’ then, as is seen, this is also a message from Heaven. [Joel 2:11: “And the Lord gave forth His voice before His army, for His camp is great, for he who performs His word is mighty, for the day of the Lord is great and very awesome…”]
And the chareidi Jews, the so-called ‘tzadikim,’ will tell us that it is forbidden to hear the radio or read a newspaper, but for many of these Jews, there is a close connection davka with all these things, and they have no problem with it, and only when there is in the news things that they don’t want to hear, then they remember that it is forbidden to hear.
And they think: “Ha, nonsense! It’s forbidden for me to hear… Who wants war now!? Because every one knows that war now will destroy very much of the world, and will kill a large part of the population of the world. No one wants this. So, it’s preferable simply to decide that this is a goyische thing, not pertaining to us, it’s purposeless…the world continues as usual and Hashem will protect us.” I just want to remind you that this was the same attitude as before the destruction of the First Temple, and also before the destruction of the Second Temple, and also before the European Holocaust. [Jeremiah 7:4 – “Do not rely on false words, saying: The Temple of the Lord, the Temple of the Lord, the Temple of the Lord are they.” For the whole matter, see verses 2-15]
But, yes, it will befall us and it’s even written in the prophets [Joel 2, Zephaniah 3, Zechariah 13 and many others]. And I know that then will begin the various interpretations about what, in truth, was said in the prophecies. And I will tell you that truthfully there will be war. Huge - really. And like it stands today, few Jews will survive. And in the world, also yes, few people, relatively, will come out of it alive.
You need to understand, and this is a fact, that not every Jew has a Jewish soul. A majority of Jews, according to very many sources from the righteous of previous generations, are from the Erev Rav [ See sources in sheet volume 73] and they will disappear from the world.
Who are the Erev Rav? They are Jews according to law. But, their soul is not the soul of a Jew. [See source in original.] How is it possible to know them? Whoever cools Jews off to Judaism. Cools and chills them [“That which happened to you on the way…” End of Ki-Tetze] They extinguish the fire that is inside every true Jew, the fire with which they do the mitzvot. And this makes Judaism into a Judaism without life, without a soul. [ Isaiah 29:13 – “…a command of people, which has been taught.”]. Because the Erev Rav cannot tolerate holiness. The Erev Rav cannot tolerate the close connection of a true Jew to HKB”H.
The Erev Rav, since they went out from Egypt, they only want to disturb the connection of Am Yisrael to the Master of the World. And in this generation, they are rejoicing, and so many Jews are falling into this thing, are falling into the will of the Erev Rav, that many of them are ‘thinking’ people, quote-unquote. [Jeremiah 50:6 – “My people were lost sheep, their shepherds caused them to stray, to the mountains they led them astray….”] That inside, deep within their plan, it is to strip the true Jew of his true Judaism. And the Erev Rav dress in chareidism, because he is the so-called ‘righteous Jew,’ and instead of directing to truth, he strips the Jew from the truth. [Lamentations 2:14 - “Your prophets have seen false and senseless visions for you, and they have not exposed your iniquity to straighten out your backsliding, but have prophesied for you false and misleading oracles.”] And the truth is – ‘ayn od milevado’ – there is nothing besides Him. In order to live in this war that in just a little bit will open, in order to survive, you need a close connection with HKB”H. [Tehillim 142: 6 – “I cried out to You, O Lord; I said, "You are my refuge, my lot in the land of the living."] Not with anyone else in the world. Because no one else will be able to direct us to this Every Jew needs to connect his own personal connection to HKB”H, and this connection will save him.
I sit and cry, cry and cry, when I see the Jews occupied with nonsense, with nonsense, with the golden calf. [Isaiah 2:8 – “And his land is full of idols; to the work of his hands he prostrates himself, to that which his fingers made.”] Yes, they pray, but it’s still far from Yiddishkeit, because the golden calf culture brings about a lack of holiness every place, results in a superficial performance of mitzvot in Am Yisrael, for chareidim, and this is the poison that separates us from the truth.
Am Yisrael, I ask you, I beg of you, now, on the eve of the great war, return to the truth! Return to holiness, take out from your lives all the things that pertain to This World, except for the things that you really need to exist. Pray truly to Hashem. Understand! We are all of us in very great danger, in danger of death, in danger of losing everything, in This World as well as the World-to-Come, G-d forbid. This is the time to sit, to pray crying, to search within ourselves - where has the golden calf entered in, where has the Erev Rav damaged us, and to take out the falsehood, and to return to the truth.
What else can I tell you, Am Yisrael? I don’t have any more words. The time is finished, the time is finished. Everyone knows it, also the gentiles and also the Jews need to know. The gentiles understand, but the Jews are thickheaded, they’ve clogged themselves up. They want until the end, until the last moment, to suck all the pleasures from This World. [Isaiah 22: 12 – “And the Lord God of Hosts called on that day, for weeping, and for lamenting and for baldness, and for girding with sackcloth. And behold, joy and happiness, slaying cattle and slaughtering sheep, eating meat and drinking wine; "Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we will die."]
If Mashiach would reveal himself at this moment, he would come to help the residents of the most chareidi Judaism, so to speak, which is Meah Shearim, Geula, Rabbi Akiva St in Bnei Brak, and I fear that he would give a shout that would incinerate whatever was standing in these three places, and not a thing would remain, except for the truly righteous, who are very few. Because these are places that it’s impossible to think of as places of holiness. There is no holiness there. And the few that there are hardly see him, because these streets, in these areas, are full of violence, immorality, baseless hatred and lack of connection to HKB”H.
Am Yisrael, this is the end! I don’t have any more to tell. Start making an accounting before the end, a spiritual accounting. To sit, to go over your lives, to see where you have strayed from the path. To make repentance with tears and regret, to ask forgiveness from HKB”H, to promise and to fulfill, that from this moment we are returning to Him, also in dress, also in prayer, also in kindness, also in holiness and in everything that pertains to a real Jew who received the Torah at Mt. Sinai. [Joel 2:12 – “And even now, says the Lord, return to Me with all your heart, and with fasting and with weeping and with lamentation. And rend your hearts and not your garments, and return to the Lord your God,….”] or disappear from reality, lo aleynu. [See sheet volume 37, headline ‘Master Plan to Save Us’]
The Torah, today, is wearing sackcloth and ashes, because for the majority, they don’t learn for the sake of Heaven. The Torah is dressed in sackcloth and ashes, because the laws (halachot), that came straight from Heaven to the Jews, they are already distorted. The Jews twist them, and the judges rule according to the golden calf, according to the will of the community. [The face of the generation, etc, …] It’s hard to believe how it’s possible to give a hechsher to a fashion wig when the Torah says “hair on a woman is nakedness.” How is it possible to give a hechsher to chickens when the shochet needs to shecht hundreds of chickens in an hour, and no telling how many unkosher ones chareidi Am Yisrael eats. Because when the matter of hechsherim will be a business with huge profits, then there will always be big question marks as to the extent that the supervision can be truly according to the law. It’s difficult to believe, how Jewish women can walk in the street with immodest, short and narrow dress, if the Torah says, “a small amount on a woman is nakedness.” It’s hard to believe, how Jews don’t keep family purity as necessary. How Jews, so-called ‘tzadikim,’ quote-unquote, know to use words and strong-arm [tactics] against women and girls who want to return to the modest dress of Sarah Imeinu, a”h.
The Torah is dressed in sackcloth and ashes, because Am Yisrael is distanced from her. Supposedly, they are ‘close,’ but they are very far from the truth. The Holy Torah is dressed in sackcloth and ashes because she sees that Hashem will not allow this to continue. For many years Hashem has tried to return His people, and it didn’t help. [Jeremiah 7:25 – “Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt until this day, I sent you all My servants the prophets, sending them day [after day] with every fresh morn. Yet they hearkened not to Me nor did they incline their ear, but stiffened their necks;…”] So, therefore, a huge part of the goyim, and the Jews who have souls of the Erev Rav, will disappear from the world. And the true Jews will receive our righteous Mashiach.
The Torah is dressed in sackcloth and ashes and cries. If we would dress in sackcloth and ashes, sit and cry, together with the Torah, together with the Shekhina, with a broken heart, and be sorry about the distancing, the distancing that we allowed the Erev Rav to distance us from the Torah, from HKB”H, and we would be sorry for it, there would be hope that the future will pass more easily. But since a few people do this, and baruch Hashem, there are people that are doing this, but since they are few, so the hope that we will pass through it easily – is also very small.
I have nothing more to say. The end is getting close - the end before the new world. [“For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth,…” - Isaiah 65:17] If a person stubbornly holds to falsehood and screams that the lie is truth, that the lie is Torah, then he will not be able to live in the new world which is all truth.
