Motza"sh - Shavua tov!
I recently received the following comments:
Good grief, It looks like we are in the 9mos of persecution that a certain Rabbi described in his depiction of the end days before Mashiach appears. Hypothetically, Where does this 9 mos end? Do we count from March, or April? From April takes us to December, perhaps Chanukah?
About the 9 months, if one counts from Feb. (Covid19 already started to appear) it would be Oct. that the 9 months would be up.
Anonymous said...These questions are concerning this quote from the Talmud...
If we are counting 9 months - personally, I think that's hard since COVID began on the other side of the world before we began to experience it. Doesn't that count as well? HR
Rabbi Yehuda said: (Moshiach) Ben David will not come until the wicked Roman kingdom will spread [extend her dominion] throughout the World for nine months.
...It is written in the Zohar, that Chevlei Moshiach will be divided into two separate periods: a period of seventy years... and a period of nine months...In the last nine months of the golus, the troubles shall greatly increase, and, at the end of this period, there will be a great fear, and then the Moshiach will be revealed.Since this is referring to the time just prior to Mashiach, it is reasonable to assume this "wicked Roman kingdom" is referring to the New World Order 'Masters' of the Universe.
In early April, three days before Pesach, I wrote Are We Now in the Nine Months of Foreign Rule? At that time, I speculated that Rosh Chodesh Shevat could mark the beginning of this worldwide rule of These Powers That Be (TPTB) because that is when the coronavirus outbreak that allegedly began in Wuhan, China, was designated as a global emergency by the World Health Organization, prompting every nation on earth to begin implementing identical advance directives pre-determined by TPTB.
Obviously, even if we could know for a certainty that this event was the beginning of the nine months, as can be seen from the comments quoted above, there are any number of possible starting points. This was also the case with the Babylonian Exile and the reason even prophets like Daniel had trouble determining exactly when the decree of 70 years would end. This gives Hashem room so to speak, to finish it earlier or later in accordance with the needs of mankind's route to teshuvah.
The more I think about it, the more it seems to me that their ultimate expression of power over the whole world has come about through the mass "lock-downs." This was the open demonstration of their absolute power! And the mask decree is the symbol of their mastery!
According to this list here, virtually every country in the world was "locked down" between early to mid-March and early April or basically between Purim and Pesach. Interestingly, the earliest was Qatar on March 11th. The vast majority were done from then through the end of March. The first city in Israel to be targeted was Bnei Braq on April 2. Only seven waited til April, the final one being Turkey on April 23rd.
So, by this we could claim that the wicked TPTB had extended their power over the entire world through the institution of mass lock-downs of the global population by Rosh Chodesh Iyyar. Remember all the videos and pictures of major cities showing thoroughfares empty of traffic, shuttered shops and streets bereft of any people, rows of aircraft parked at closed airports??? It was an unprecedented phenomenon.
(1) Iyyar - (2) Sivan- (3) Tamuz - (4) Av- (5) Elul - (6) Tishrei - (7) Cheshvan - (8) Kislev - (9) Tevet ... Tevet ends on January 13, 2021. This is precisely when the autistic seer says the planetary destruction arrives, which is the only thing that can stop TPTB.

We need to prepare.
Between now and Hanukkah 5781 will be the hardest period of time. ...there will be a relaxation at Hanukkah 5781. The Hanukkah candles will give the Jews strength because until then there will be great struggles and they won’t believe at all in the government.
The Chareidim will return more and more to HKB”H as is necessary. Hanukkah will be an island of quiet in all the chaos and after Hanukkah the “star” will arrive and it won’t be simple. And whoever did not do teshuvah until then will fear what is happening and immediately run to do teshuvah.This is the best answer I have, but as usual, we can only prepare ourselves to be ready at any moment to meet our Maker and to continue with Torah, mitzvot and gemilut chasadim as we faithfully await our righteous Mashiach, may he be revealed before our very eyes without any further delays. Amen!
