18 Tammuz 5782
Life has become a daily unremitting, unrelenting war.
Our minds, bodies and spirits are under constant bombardment whether it be from...
- poisoned food and water
- experimental medical therapies
- constant exposure to RF and EMF waves
- anti-God propaganda
- corruption of the Torah and Mesorah
- mass media-generated distractions, fear, chaos and confusion
The only escape, the only refuge in which to rest and regroup, is within the shelter of the holy Shabbat, our own arba amot when we stand before HKB"H in prayer or when we sit and learn Torah. Only through our direct connection to HKB"H can our souls be infused with the power to overcome all that stands opposed to us.
This Is An Urgent Message To The Jewish People
We have been warned already many times, but now is the time to heed those warnings. We are in the biggest test of all time and there is only one way to guarantee we'll pass it.
There is a certain segment of Orthodoxy, probably well-meaning, which is claiming that we have already entered into the messianic light and as a result, new rules apply, and it involves coming together with our gentile "brothers and sisters" in order to bring about the final redemption. It claims that they are an essential part of the process which cannot be completed without their involvement. Notably, it does not demand that they abandon their idolatry and, in fact, does not appear to recognize false religions as idolatry at all.
I've said it before, and now, I say it maybe for the last time: Abandon both right and left, both Yishmael and Eisav, both Democrats and Republicans, both right-wing and left-wing, both liberalism and conservatism, both communism and capitalism...
We, as the Am Kadosh have no place among the nations of the world and their false divisions. We are separate and elevated to the space occupied by Torah and mitzvot. There we walk a narrow center-balanced, 'non-aligned' path whose foundation is pure Emet.
Lies are proliferating exponentially and the darkness it brings is engulfing the whole world. It's a given that we must cut ourselves off from the secular, goyische world, but today, when "most of the rabbis are from the Erev Rav," we must be very suspect of anything in the Torah world that is "modern" and "innovative" and hold it at a distance until it can be verified and substantiated with proven, reliable and established sources. Be especially wary of those who bring a message of "unity" with non-Jews.
You will be tempted, but we must not make common cause with the nations, or any portion thereof, under any circumstances, whatever the justification or rationalization!!
These are not the days of King Solomon when Israel was a sovereign nation, respected and admired by the world. These are the days of a looming Gog uMagog onslaught - the last attempt at a Final Solution.
We have no need of interaction with them, no need of any information that they may share, or advice which they might offer, or demands that they may make upon us. When we are connected to HKB"H, we have everything we need, including Divine protection. When we pray, we talk to Him, when we learn Torah, He speaks to us. In that line of communication is simply everything necessary to survive and thrive.
Most of us have been playing games with HKB"H until now, convincing ourselves that we were really doing our best, or at least the best that we were capable of under the circumstances, but this is just the yetzer hara. Know that to the degree he fights you on the changes you know you need to make in your life to come into compliance with the expectations of HKB"H, that is the same degree to which they are going to benefit you and allow you to survive when the world turns over.

The above was originally published on the 6th of Tammuz, but after some instruction by Rabbi Richter, I removed it, edited it and have now resubmitted it today. I decided to add some pertinent quotes which I had blogged previously and how interesting is it that those quotes were published on 11 Tevet this year and this follow-up, so-to-speak, is appearing 18 Tammuz?

Reposting from "Separation Is The Key to Redemption"...
The Jew’s safety raftThe Jew’s safety raft is supported by three points. The top point is the Holy One, may He be blessed, with whom we are joined by faith and properly observing the Shabbat. The second point is the holy Torah, by means of which we are connected to Hashem through loving and studying it. The third point is the People of Israel who act in accordance with Jewish law and unite to sanctify the Heavenly Name by separating themselves from the airev rav and the gentile culture.
“During the First World War many came to the Chafetz Chaim and asked him if this is the ‘End of Days’ and the war of Gog and Magog. The Chaftez Chaim answered: ‘After this war there will be a pause and then there will be another war and then another pause. Then, there will be another war and with that war the Mashiach will come…the last war will be the beginning of the redemption, and a Torah-true Jew who is completely separated from the non-Jews will not be subjugated, as we find that in Egypt when two people drank from the same cup, one (an Egyptian) drank blood and the other (an Israelite) drank water. This shows that in fact there is no rule whatsoever over a Jew who is separated entirely from the non-Jews” (Rabbi Aharon Kotler, in the name of the Chafetz Chaim, Leket Reshimot Channukah by Rabbi Noson Wachtofogel, p. 40).
I have a tradition passed down from one to another in the name of Maran HaGaon Rabbi Yehoshua Leib Diskin, z”l, that in the final war before the arrival of Mashiach all of the righteous Jews will be saved. Who are ‘righteous Jews’? Those who are separated from the non-Jews! It does not mean that they must be one of the 36 righteous individuals, rather they must be separated from the ways of the non-Jews and have no contact with their culture! Not with their newspapers, their music and books; to be entirely separated from them. Then Hashem will say: You are Mine and you are under a different authority so no one else will rule over you” (Ibid., p.41)
...The Jew who believes and trusts in G-d,...will arrive at truth and faith and tranquility, whereas he who trusts in man, in human strength, will arrive at falsehood and tragedy. This is because someone who trusts in G-d will attain the spiritual level of, "Israel shall thus dwell securely, alone" (Deut. 33:28); whereas someone who relies on his own arrogance or on the nations will arrive, G-d forbid, at, "How does the city sit alone" (Lam. 1:1).We must know and grasp this great principle, which is the key to speedy, magnificent redemption, without suffering or tragedy. A brilliant redemption, in which G-d's promise of "haste" (Isa. 60:22) is fulfilled, will come only when the Jewish People are alone, set apart, in isolation, and trusting fully in G-d to defeat our enemies.
