The Fear Factor

Some claim that all attempts to put the fear of G-d into Jews today is a useless endeavor. They simply aren't motivated by it. Instead, unconditional love is the answer. It sounds nice, but is it true?

The Prophet Yeshayahu (Perek 2, Pasuk 19)---

And they shall come into the caves of the rocks and into the hollows of the earth, because of the fear of the Lord and because of the splendor of His pride, when He rises to break the earth.

The Prophet Yeshayahu (Perek 13, Pasukim 6-13)---

Lament, for the day of the Lord is near; like a raid from the Almighty it shall come. Therefore, all hands shall grow feeble, and the heart of every mortal shall melt. 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. 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. 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. 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. I will make mortal man dearer than fine gold, and man [dearer] than the collection of the gold of Ophir. 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.

Many "experts" are predicting two great events for the Fall of 2009---the collapse of the US dollar and an Israel/Iran War.

Many Predict US Financial Collapse in September

Gates Gives Iran Two Months

If you do the research, you will find other examples. Additionally, the Web Bot Project finds language to this effect:

"Populace/USofA - War! War! And more [war] with aspects/attributes of [army], and [bad luck], and the [army carrying (its dead)] in long trains of [carts]that [stretch back] over the [horizon].

...The [war] sub set provides the imagery of [israel] attacking [iran] in the Fall and given the emotional tension shift on October 26th that propels the values through November and December, it would not be surprising to find that the [attacks against (the) victims (iran)] would arise close to that point as modelspace is progressed. The imagery from the detail aspect/attributes would have it play out as an [aerial bombardment] against Iran that is particularly [brutal] and that causes a very high level of [populace deaths] immediately in Iran.

...the [death tolls] to the [usofa military] start to become [known], and the whole situation changes overnight. It is at this point that the [officialdom/political elite] of the [usofa] start to [panic]. The [attacks by israel] have [caused] a nearly [complete cessation of trading (of anything)] at a global level, and the [food supply pressures] as well as the [escalation of death levels], *and* most importantly the attempt by the [political elite] to initiate [sudden, rapid] and [forced] drafting of the populace (both sexes) into the [military] starts the [active] stage of [rebellion] in the [usofa]. The [rebellion] sub set gradually is overtaken into [revolution] as the [bad disasters] grow across November and December. The data sets indicate that the [political elite] will instigate [lethal/deadly attacks] against the [populace/usofa]. "

B'kitsur, the USA is a sinking ship and time to jump ship is quickly running out. The Children of Israel have a homeland given to them by the Master of the Universe. Why should Ya'akov choose to go down with Eisav?
