"In the Perspective of the Jewish Idea"

2 Adar 5780

Guest Post by Yekutiel ben Ya'akov:

Corona Virus – The cause and the cure. Trump Plan, Temple Mount, and More.

Jewish Law obligates every Jew to research the cause of natural disasters, plagues; even those disasters that hit far away gentile nations, not to mention global crises that affect every human being on the face of the earth, including severe potential harm to Jews worldwide. In fact, we are required to fast, pray and contemplate what we must do to correct the ills that have triggered this Divine punishment. The Talmud in Yevamot (63a) says any significant world event and tragedy is really meant for the Jews. G-d, in His infinite mercy gives the world and the Jewish people an opportunity to prevent the further spreading of tragedy by correcting our ways and repenting. Punishment is a reward to those who have the eyes, humility and heart to make the necessary changes, in order to stop the suffering. Those who believe in G-d and in the truth of His Torah, believe that G-d is not a liar, who promises reward and punishment to man based on his deeds.

The Rambam (Taanit 1, 3) and Shulhan Aruch, (Orach Haim Taf Kuf Ayin Vov, paragraph 2) quote the Talmud and the biblical verse (Vayikra 26, 27) and go as far as to say, that those who refuse to see the hand of G-d in natural disasters, plagues and such, and who think that it is all coincidental, refusing to mend their ways, are guaranteed more tragedy and more such coincidences.

Thus, it must be easy enough for man to connect the dots; connect the punishment to the crime, so as to be able to understand what has brought the wrath of G-d upon us, with this horrible epidemic. Otherwise, how can we be expected to know how to repent? What specific sin or set of sins causes any given disaster? We Jews have 613 commandments, and the gentiles have their seven Noachide Laws. How do we know how to correct our behavior, if we don’t know what particular behavioral flaw needs most correcting? Surely there are many laws which most of us violate. Therefore, we must objectively seek the Torah solution which can be done in cases where the sin is blatant and evident, particularly if the Torah gives us a specific warning to beware of a specific punishment to those who transgress on that specific commandment. In many cases it might not be spelled out that clearly in the Bible, and we may need to look around us, to see the obvious answers and clues. Sometimes, the punishment is so similar in character to the sin, and screams forth, “measure for measure”. 

Regardless, G-d is not arbitrary and cruel and the clue must be apparent to those who truly seek to find G-d’s answers. Just as G-d dishes out the punishment, He also creates visible clues for all to see. Jews with eyes, who refuse to see, will helplessly and blindly stumble upon the clues, like blind fools.

Find here some ideas, food for thought:

What is Corona?

Corona – in Hebrew spells Kra Na El Hashem = Please call out to G-d

Corona connection to the Temple Mount.

Corona means crown. The crown and heart of the Jewish people is the Temple Mount. The mount is being surrendered to Arab control under the custodianship of the Jordanians and the Islamic WAKF. Let us not forget that our sages teach us that one of the reasons for the miserable plague during the time of King David that killed ten’s of thousands of people was due to our sin of not building G-d’s Temple on the mount, the Beit HaMikdash. G-d’s palace. G-d’s crown is not whole without His palace, on Judaism’s holiest site. It is no coincidence that Corona hits the headlines and breaks out on the very days that the headlines burst forth words of accolades by Jews who were overwhelmed with joy to embrace the Trump plan. For the first time, there was an unprecedented and historic surrender by Jews of our sovereignty on the Mount – God’s crown. The Trump plan goes as far as to invite a billion Moslems to come and worship on the mount. Jared Kushner made this argument in his effort to sell the deal to the Arabs. For the first time ever, Moslems worldwide will be welcome to come on their pilgrimage to Jerusalem.

If this plague bares any resemblance to the one that afflicted King David’s empire, then it will only be cured when the Jews assert their sovereignty on the mount and commence the building of the third Temple.

Corona’s Hebrew root Kore or Kere means, among other things, coincidence, calling and name.

Corona = same root as Kerre, literally translated as coincidental happening usually used in halachic liturgy in a derogatory manner to define/describe man’s refusal to recognize divine punishment or one who sees natural disasters and plagues as nothing more than arbitrary coincidence, or as natural course of events.

Inherent within the very name of the virus is the concept that we must delve into the cause and seek to repent.

Similarly the Zika virus, which in Hebrew means, cause or connection…

Carried by a bird rat – bat. A bird that is really a rat. That is essentially a blood sucking mammal.

The very same time that our good friend, Pres. Donald Trump finally unveils his long awaited deal, the virus breaks. The deal, is nothing more than a fake peace deal. The bat may look like a bird, with wings, but it is a fake bird, that will ultimately suck our blood.

The atalef which means bat in Hebrew comes from the same root as the Ayit, which is an eagle or vulture. They “at” on their prey below. The eagle is the symbol of America. The Ayit – has the same gematria as Trump. Trump deal and in Corona is the same gematria.

Isolation is the only solution.

No coincidence that the headlines blared in stereo – Corona and the Trump deal.

There is no known medical cure to Corona as of yet. The only thing that could stop the spreading of corona is isolation.

Isolation of Israel is the only solution for Jews who wish to bring salvation and redemption upon Israel. Faith not in Trump but in the G-d of Israel. In fact, as the Talmud teaches us, Moshiach can only come when the Jews rely on G-d and know that it is He who brings them salvation and not the aid of any given ally or superpower.

The embrace of the Trump deal and the timing of Israel’s stalled implementation of the annexation frills, are all centered around Israel’s obsession with world opinion, particularly Trump’s opinion. The antithesis of the remedy to exile and darkness is represented in this deal. The opposite of isolation is Bibi’s prime selling point of the deal as well as his great “accomplishments”: look how the world now loves us and recognizes our rights.

Other vital lessons to learn from the outbreak of Corona:

Man is vulnerable. When tragedy hits it takes down the good with the bad. It is hard to conceive the speed and intensity. Those Jews who live abroad need to contemplate the following realities:

Flights are easily halted. People are left behind without ability to come home to Israel, in time. Somehow, many anti-Semites are effectively linking Jews to Corona and blaming the Jews.

For the Jew in Israel who seeks to find health, wealth and happiness abroad, you may find yourself trapped in danger.

It is no coincidence that atheist communist China was hit first – largest most dense population of kofrim! So much of the global economy is affected by China’s lockdown.

Most outstanding for violating one of the 7 Noachide laws, as they are accustomed to literally eating limbs and parts of live animals, not only bats.

Corona = gematria b'sheva = in Seven. Seven laws of Noach. Seventh day – Shabbat.

Also HaCorona -The corona in gematria equals B'Ramim, that Hazon Ish translates to mean diseases. The gemara teaches us that The Ramim come to straighten crooked hearts…

Israel, have faith in G-d and not in Trump or any other man. Israel, a nation that dwells alone.

The Symbol of Assimilation - Now on Sale

1 Adar 5780
Rosh Chodesh Bet

Who here does not understand the symbolism exhibited on this mezuza case on sale at a popular Jerusalem department store?


It's the Christian symbol of the New Testament's "One New Man" - Jew (menorah) and Christian (fish) joined together. Each loses his former individuality and becomes instead a hybrid - Judeo-Christian - which finds common ground in modern Zionism and is often exemplified by the combining of the US and Israeli flags.



[See further HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.]

This is Hellenism for the 21st century.  It's a celebration of assimilation and the ultimate "final solution." And it's becoming ubiquitous in the State of Israel.

A Tale of Two Religions - One True, One False

29 Shevat 5780
Yom Kippur Katan

There's an old saying:  "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em."  A lot of truth can be found in "old sayings."  And this one is best exemplified today by the relationship between the Church and the Synagogue.

Traditionally, that relationship was depicted like this...
ECCLESIA ET SYNAGOGA, the name given to the symbolic representations in Christian art of the Middle Ages of the victorious Church and defeated Synagogue, symbolizing the triumph of Christianity. The representation is often found in medieval Christian manuscript art. It also became a conventional decoration in many medieval churches, especially in France, England, and Germany, and took the form of two graceful female figures, usually on the outside of the building. The Church is shown erect and triumphant, bearing a cross; the Synagogue is usually blindfolded and dejected, bearing a broken staff and sometimes decorated with the Tables of the Ten Commandments symbolizing the Old Testament. The best known statues of this type are on the exterior of the cathedrals of Strasbourg and Bamberg. They are also found in Rheims, Paris, and Bordeaux. In England, they figure, generally in a mutilated condition, in Rochester, Lincoln, Salisbury, and Winchester. The representation of the blindfolded synagogue was paradoxically reflected even in Jewish manuscript art: as for example in the miniature of the blindfolded Torah with her spouse, the People of Israel, in a 14th-century manuscript prayer book (Hamburg, Cod. Lev. 37; possibly having a symbolic meaning, representing the Torah and the People of Israel).  (Source)
Today...
In 2015, Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia commissioned a large sculpture by Joshua Koffman showing the pair in harmony. The sculpture is aimed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Declaration Nostra aetate. Both personifications wear crowns and hold their respective Holy Scriptures, the pair suggesting the notion of learning one from another. The final, bronze cast version of the sculpture was blessed by Pope Francis at St Joseph´s University in September 2015.  (Source)
Some might see the second depiction as an improvement over the first, but that would be a mistake...



Judaism and Christianity are not equals in any way. They are complete opposites, pretty much the way the medieval church depicted it, but it is the Synagogue that will be victorious in the end, not the Church, because the Synagogue marks the path to Truth and the Church is founded on a pack of lies.  

This reminds me once again of the Midrash about Eisav putting on a tallit at the End of Days...
In the future, Esau will wrap himself in a tallis, sit down next to Yakov and say to him, "You are my brother"....Yakov will say to him, "My brother, you will not be like me. I will lead you to death, I will be the pestilence that leads you to Sheol (Hoshea 13,14). Had I upheld decrees that you promulgated against me, I would have been guilty at the eyes of Heaven. Had I violated them, you would have killed me (Yalkut Shimoni, Yirmiahu 333).

"That was Esau's intention when he told Yakov, 'Let us travel together and I will go before you' (Genesis 33,12). He wanted them to join together in both this world and the world to come, to meet each other halfway, with each modifying his conduct until they were alike (Yalkut Shimoni, Genesis 133).
This "meeting halfway" is accomplished by Christians "embracing" [their Christianized idea of] the "Torah" and the Jews accepting the "Jewish messiah."  How has anything really changed???  Practically speaking, it hasn't!  This is just assimilation with tallit and tefillin and a kippah or headscarf!



There is absolutely nothing that Christianity can teach the Jews and there is absolutely no compromising on the Torah of Sinai!!

Coronavirus Believed to Have Been Engineered

25 Shevat 5780

You don't have to be a prophet to see where this is going.  You just have to have a healthy skepticism when it comes to reportage and be able to fill in the pieces of the Big Picture.  One thing is for sure, China did not do this to itself.  But HKB"H didn't stop it because, as has been pointed out in numerous places, they actually had it coming, sad to say.

Another False Religion Rears Its Ugly Head

24 Shevat 5780

The pitiful Christians keep reinventing themselves in order to attract Jews to their cause.  Here is just the latest attempt - a variation on the Erev Rav's assimilationist, Zionist-centered Judeo-Christianity.

"...Our hearts are to see friendship and cooperation built between Jews and Christians and we believe Biblical Zionism is the way to our collective better future."
And who is promoting it but Har Brachah Rabbi Eliezer Melamed's favorite "righteous" gentiles - Waller Family and Friends of HaYovel fame.

Lacking any leadership on a par with our Rambam, they had to invent their own "Thirteen Principles."  And why...?
"In recognition that world peace is impossible without peace first between Christians and Jews, we lay forth these principles which can serve to unite Christians and Jews on grounds held common by all Biblical Zionists."
Unfortunately, having only really known the "Messianic" houses of avodah zarah and having only learned at the feet of the Erev Rav "Jews", they are so ignorant of authentic Judaism that they have no clue about the unbreachable chasm that divides real Jews from them.

Many, many well-meaning, self-described Orthodox Jews, especially in Judea and Samaria, are all in with these so-called Christian Zionists.  Many share in the crimes of these missionaries to assimilation as they have gone so far as to welcome them into their homes, give them jobs and help them to establish domiciles (a foothold for the future) in our Holy Land.

If you never get anything more than this, then this will suffice:  they are not your "friends;" they are an intractable foe!

We need to recommit ourselves to spreading this very message and reinforcing it at every opportunity - that there is no equality and no common ground whatsoever between Christians and Jews.  Judeo-Christian "Biblical" Zionism is just another false religion which will go the same way of all false religions while those faithful to the covenant of his fathers will stand forever.

Trump and The Temple Mount

24 Shevat 5780
Tom Nissani, chairman of the Students for the Temple Mount movement, said in response to the incident: “The arrest and handcuffing of a former Israeli MK immediately after a tour with US Congress members emphasizes our shameful position on the Temple Mount — the Mount is not in our hands.”  (Source)
"The Mount is not in our hands."  All you can say to that is, "Duh!!" 

And if Trump has his way with the "Deal of the Century," we never will have. 
Despite a 1967 agreement between Jordan and Israel deeming Jordan as the official “custodian” of Al-Aqsa, Palestinians have long feared and fought against Israeli attempts to change the status quo at the site, citing frequent Israeli police raids and the presence of right-wing settlers.

[Trump's] plan suggests that the current agreement between Israel and Jordan remain in place, and “the status quo at the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif should continue uninterrupted.”
They know that they can give us everything else, but if they hold back the Temple Mount, they can prevent the redemption.  This was the most important and most distressing part of a very disturbing document, but hey!  We gotta take whatever Evil Uncle Eisav will allow, no?  I mean, who runs this world anyway??!!

A lot of people are still going to be very, very surprised.

The Real Threat From The Coronavirus

23 Shevat 5780

When I wrote my first blog post on the coronavirus three weeks ago, I indicated that my initial assessment was that it was being over-hyped to create a massive climate of fear globally.  Furthermore, I mentioned that one reason for this could be to bring about a "controlled collapse" of the world economy.  Well, that initial assessment has not changed.

In spite of all the "videos" alleging that people without even having any signs of illness were dropping dead in China's streets from this virus and bodies were being burned in numbers so massive it could be seen from space, I don't believe it and now we have the proof.

All of this nonsense was made possible because the Chinese government is notorious for concealing their true situation - whatever it may be - from foreign observation and lying to their own people in order to maintain strict control over the population.  That may very well be one of the reasons China was chosen as the place for this to start. (Yes, I do think it was engineered.)

The "proof" that the coronavirus is not as deadly as someone wants us to believe is on the Japanese cruise ship Diamond Princess.  Out of the 454 people reportedly infected over the past two weeks, there has not been one death recorded.  They couldn't make anything up about the passengers on the cruise ship because it's too small and self-contained.  Too many witnesses.

At the same time, the economic fall-out is beginning to trickle down...
Asia stocks fall as economic impact of coronavirus weighs on markets

Coronavirus: How it impacts your money

THE COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS AND ITS ECONOMIC IMPACT (UPDATED 18TH FEB.)

Coronavirus could impact 5 million companies worldwide, new research shows
  • A special briefing issued by global business research firm Dun & Bradstreet analyzed the Chinese provinces most impacted by the virus, and found they are intricately linked to the global business network.
  • Almost half (49%) of the companies with subsidiaries in impacted regions are headquartered in Hong Kong, while the U.S. accounts for 19%, Japan 12% and Germany 5%.
  • Dun & Bradstreet researchers found that at least 51,000 companies worldwide, 163 of which are in the Fortune 1000, have one or more direct or “tier 1” suppliers in the impacted region.
Again, somebody knew what they were doing when they chose this area for the release of a virus which has now been shown to be very mild in children and deadly to the elderly.  What's more, the control they've been wielding over people's freedom of movement is practice and preparation for when people discover the real truth about their future.

This is the real story and the real threat for the greatest number of people in the world. This economic impact has already gone viral in a pandemic kind of way.

Global Catastrophe Approaching

22 Shevat 5780

And, no, it's not the coronavirus.  It's a pole shift induced by a micro-nova of our sun.

Judging by how the weather just keeps breaking records for severity (wind speeds, wave heights, rainfall totals). It looks like the pole shift is getting close.  This is not theoretical.  It's happening NOW.
Extreme tailwinds helped 3 planes break records flying from New York to London in under 5 hours
Twin bomb cyclones to merge into one of strongest-ever storms in North Atlantic, hammering Iceland and threatening Britain as Storm Dennis
A potentially unprecedented scenario is unfolding in the North Atlantic on Friday, as a bomb cyclone batters Iceland with hurricane-force winds and blizzard conditions, just as another bomb cyclone, known as Storm Dennis, rapidly intensifies behind it. Ultimately, the two storms will enter into a complex dance around each other before combining into one atmospheric behemoth, with a minimum central air pressure that could rank among the top three most intense storms ever observed in the stormy North Atlantic Basin.

The Sheath of the Sun

The Midrash states that “there is a sheath around the sun” and explains this to be the meaning of the verse: “He has set up a tent for the sun” (Psalms 19:5). This sheath is mentioned in several places in the Sages’ writings, in which they imply that were it not for its existence, life on earth would suffer terribly and perhaps even perish.
Sources in Tanach confirm the role of the sun at the End of Days...
Isaiah 13
6 Lament, for the day of the Lord is near; like a raid from the Almighty it shall come.
7 Therefore, all hands shall grow feeble, and the heart of every mortal shall melt.
8 And they shall panic; pangs and throes shall seize them; like a woman in confinement they shall writhe; each man shall be amazed at his fellow; their faces are faces of flames.
9 Behold, the day of the Lord is coming, cruel with wrath and burning anger, to make the land desolate, and its sinners He shall destroy from it.
10 For the stars of the heavens and its constellations shall not allow their light to illuminate, the sun has become dark in its going forth, and the moon shall not shine its light.
11 And I will visit evil upon the earth, and upon the wicked their iniquity; and I will cut off the pride of the presumptuous, and the arrogance of the tyrants I will humble.
12 I will make mortal man dearer than fine gold, and man [dearer] than the collection of the gold of Ophir.
13 Therefore, I will make heaven quake, and the earth will quake out of its place, because of the anger of the Lord of Hosts, and on the day of His burning wrath.
Isaiah 30
26 And the light of the moon shall be like the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold as the light of the seven days, on the day the Lord shall bind the fracture of His people, and the stroke of their wound He shall heal.
Joel 3
3 And I will perform signs in the heavens and on the earth: Blood, fire, and pillars of smoke.
4 The sun shall turn to darkness, and the moon to blood, prior to the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.
5 And it shall come to pass that whoever shall call in the name of the Lord shall be delivered, for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be a deliverance, as the Lord said, and among the survivors whom the Lord invites.
Amos 8
9 And it shall come to pass on that day, says the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to set at midday, and I will darken the land on a sunny day.
Malachi 3
19 For lo, the sun comes, glowing like a furnace, and all the audacious sinners and all the perpetrators of wickedness will be stubble. And the sun that comes shall burn them up so that it will leave them neither root nor branch, says the Lord of Hosts.
20 And the sun of mercy shall rise with healing in its wings for you who fear My Name....



Before you automatically write this off because of the references to previous cycles of catastrophe, you should be aware of what Aryeh Kaplan wrote in the book Immortality, Resurrection, and the Age of the Universe: A Kabbalistic View, Chapter 1.
...Many fundamentalist Christian groups have adopted the idea of creationism, a teaching based on the literal interpretation of the Bible.  Of course, since gentiles do not take the Oral Torah into consideration, their approach is certain to be very different than ours.  Moreover, many of their arguments have been very effectively refuted by some of the best scientific minds.  That Orthodox Jews should align themselves with such groups is both dangerous and anti-Torah.
Sabbatical Cycles
The only choice remaining is to look into our classical Torah literature and determine whether there are any pertinent statements regarding the age of the universe.  Significantly, there is a very important, though not well known, concept that is discussed in the Sefer ha-Temunah, an ancient Kabbalistic work attributed to the first-century tanna, Rabbi Nehunya ben ha-Kanah.  ...[It] speaks about Sabbatical cycles (shemitot).  This is based on the Talmudic teaching that "the world will exist for six thousand years, and in the seven-thousandth year, it will be destroyed."  The Sefer ha-Temunah states that this seven-thousand-year cycle is merely one Sabbatical cycle.  However, since there are seven Sabbatical cycles in a Jubilee, the world is destined to exist for forty-nine thousand years.

There is a question as to which cycle we are in today. ...According to Sefer ha-Temunah, then, there were other worlds before Adam was created. These were the worlds of previous Sabbatical cycles.

...The concept of pre-Adamic cycles was well known among the RIshonim (early authorities), and is cited in such sources as Bahya, Recanati, Ziyyoni, and Sefer ha-Chinuch. It is also alluded to in the Kuzari, and in the commentaries of the Ramban and Ibn Ezra.

Zohar Predicts Just Prior to the Coming of Mashiach...

18 Shevat 5780
"After these troubles awaken upon Israel, all the nations and their kings will seek counsel together against them. They will awaken several evil sentences, unite against them, and trouble after trouble will come, and the last makes the first forgotten. Then the pillar of fire that stands from above downwards will be seen for forty days and all the nations in the world will see it."  (Zohar, Shemot)

Could this be referring to the following events being reported today?
UN human rights agency releases blacklist of 112 companies that aid settlements
Nearly four years in the making, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights on Wednesday surprisingly published a list of more than 100 companies that conduct business in Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

Israeli reacted angrily to the publication of the blacklist, denouncing the UN body responsible for compiling it and vowing to protect Israeli financial interests. The Palestinians, meanwhile, celebrated a “victory for international law.”

Most of the 112 companies on the list are Israeli, including all major banks, state-owned transportation companies Egged and Israel Railways Corporation, and telecommunications giants Bezeq, HOT and Cellcom. It also lists medium-size companies such as restaurant chain Café Café and Angel bakeries.
Huge red star might explode soon and next few weeks are critical

Supergiant star Betelgeuse has been getting dimmer at an unprecedented pace over the past few months, leading some astronomers to wonder if it might be in the process of the collapse that precedes a supernova explosion.

"At that time, the Messiah King will awaken to come out of the Garden of Eden, from the place called “the bird’s nest,” and will appear in the land of the Galilee."

The Beautiful Land of Israel

It's hard to believe a winter storm is on its way and it could be snowing in Jerusalem by Yom Rishon.  It was like a summer day here today.  The mountains in the distance in this first picture are in Jordan.  They were much clearer than this photo shows, clearer than I've ever seen them.  So, this is looking east from my yishuv and the second photo is looking west towards Jerusalem at sunset.

This is heaven to me.  I never tire of these views and I can't imagine living anywhere else.  I am so blessed to be in the Beautiful Land of Israel.  Thank you, Hashem!!




The Nature of the Messianic Era is Revelation

11 Shevat 5780
Tencent may have accidentally leaked real data on Wuhan virus deaths
"Tencent briefly lists 154,023 infections and 24,589 deaths from Wuhan coronavirus"
That's a 16% mortality rate, five times greater than originally being reported, which explains the extraordinary protection measures, and not far off from the mortality rate of the 1918 Spanish 'Flu (20%).

If this is the case, the fear is not unjustified.  And the scary videos are probably real.  There is also a reliable report that the virus genome contains HIV DNA, and responds to a mixture of drugs including anti-HIV.  Somebody has been playing in the lab.  And it probably did escape from the Wuhan Virology Institute.  No coincidences.  

The fact it got out was all Hashem.  ALL is being revealed - it's the nature of the End of Days that everything previously concealed is now being revealed

***
The American government (Democrats as well as Republicans) has been stripped publicly, its true nature and character revealed to the entire world, all its sins laid bare for all to see through the impeachment process.  This, too, was Yad Hashem.

The "Deal of the Century" could remain under wraps just so long and then it, too, had to come out.  The treachery of American foreign policy vis a vis granting the Arabs yet another "state" with the collusion of the Israeli government should now be clear for all to see - all except the willfully blind.
