"Egypt" Loses Its Power Over Israel on the 15th of Nissan

"...and on the 15th of Nisan they will in the future be redeemed from subjugation to exile.” (Tanhuma, Bo 9)

By the word of two witnesses

Like in the days of Noah....

When something is brought to my attention and before I even turn around, it comes at me again from a completely different direction, I sit up and take notice. To me, it's like the testimony of two witnesses confirming the truth of a matter.

I was reading the latest newsletter from Roy Neuberger and in it he says the following:

I heard the words of Rabbi Mattisyahu Salamon Shlita"h in which he described the Chofetz Chaim's account of what would take place before the coming of Moshiach. There would be three wars. (Of course, all we need is teshuva to enable Moshiach to come peacefully! But otherwise....) The First World War was War Number One. The Second World War, which the Chofetz Chaim predicted before his death, was War Number Two. Then, he said, there would be an interval, followed by a Third War, after which Moshiach would arrive.

BUT ... the Third War would be different from the first two. During the first two wars the Angel of Death was given permission to go after tzaddikim as well as others. We know in retrospect what that meant; we know what happened seventy years ago. But in the Third War, before the coming of Moshiach, the Angel of Death will have no power over those who cling with all their strength to G-d and His Torah! Those who know that there is no other Power beside Him, those who understand the total emptiness of the surrounding culture, will live through the Third War and into the Age of Moshiach ben Dovid!

Does not the story of Noah illustrate precisely that point? There is no getting around it. There is only one ticket for survival! We must very soberly learn the appropriate lessons. If we are not made afraid by the fate of Noah's world, then we are not getting the message.

Then, I saw that a new message had been posted from the autistic children at Messages from Heaven and this is what I read there:

(Translated and paraphrased) ...This time, it won't be like it was in the Shoah when Hashem took the righteous along with the wicked. This time it will be a clarification. It will be decided from Shamayim, who will survive and who won't. It will be very clear....

Right now, our job is to cleanse ourselves from all impurities, to do complete teshuva, to perfect our middot, to separate ourselves from evil, disconnect from all attachments to the world of sheker and prepare ourselves to be fit to survive and enter into Days of Mashiach. Hold fast to your faith in HKB"H and in His promise to send us Mashiach Tzidkeinu and to redeem us completely!

Every day, we are one day closer to the new reality and that means we have one day less to prepare ourselves. Make the most of the time we have left.
