Not Just Another War
Many tzaddikim are saying this is the war of Gog and Magog. How do we win – and how do we survive?
This is not just another war. More than one of the 36 hidden tzaddikim that I am connected to is saying that this is the last war, and after this, Mashiach will come. We are fighting a war on two fronts. Some missiles have come in from Syria, an ominous sign. Yemen has been sending missiles and drones and officially declared war. And now US army bases have been attacked in Syria and Iraq. Big, big signs.
The Gemara says that Mashiach will come when everyone has already despaired of him coming. I know that I for one am feeling that despair right now. However, I did hear from one reliable source that it’s not actually wrong. It’s just that the Redemption is a long process and we don’t understand how it’s unfolding. But looking back after Mashiach is revealed, we will understand how these were years of the Redemption, years during which important background processes happened that were necessary.
And the Holocaust that the Jewish people just experienced on Simchat Torah is one of them. Another stop along the way, another big contraction in this birth of a new world, a perfected world, of the Full Redemption and the revelation not only of Mashiach himself, but of the Kingship of Hashem. That there is one God who runs the world and manages and decides every detail in it. Ein od milvado – there is none other.
Additionally, Rabbi Kaduri’s son recently came to Rabbi Arush, explaining that his father left him a sealed envelope before his passing, telling him not to open it until he was given permission. Friday night of Parshat Bereishit, the week after the Holocaust of Simchat Torah – Rabbi Kaduri zt”l came to his son in a dream telling him to open the envelope. Inside, it said that when terrorists will come into Israel and butcher Jews in the south – this is the sign that the Geula is now beginning in earnest. And then Rabbi Kaduri’s son learned with Rabbi Arush the section in Chronicles that Harav then discussed in his class last week: Why is Hashem Doing This to Us?
Another sign I heard in the class of a prominent Kabbalist, Rabbi Biton, is that everything happened between 6 and 7. In the Jewish year, we are in the year 5783, getting towards the end of the 6th millennia. The 7th millennia is Shabbat – Mashiach, the world in a perfected state. So right now, we are in Chevlei Mashiach – the “birth pangs” of Mashiach, as Hashem prepares the world to transition. The terrorists butchered most of the Jews on Simchat Torah between 6 and 7 in the morning, a hint from Hashem as to where this attack falls in the spectrum of time. There were several other hints from the Zohar he brought between 6 and 7, including a hint to this attack on page 298 – רצח – in the Zohar (in Hebrew, letters are also numbers and can be used to number pages in books). That page number spells out retzach – which means “murder” in Hebrew.
Hence, there are hints and signs everywhere! The question is: What are we supposed to do about it?
More and More Prayer
I’ve already written extensively about how everyone needs to fight this war with everything they have in my previous articles in this series, particularly my article Avenging their Blood. A hidden tzaddik recently mentioned a section in the Rambam which discusses the positive mitzvah to cry out to Hashem in times of distress. Hence, this tzaddik said that every letter of Psalms right now is a positive Torah commandment – not just Rabbinical, but Torah obligated! He said it is the biggest cruelty right now to not say Psalms when all the Jewish people is in terrible danger. Hamas is loaded to the gills with weaponry not only in Gaza, but all over the land – and we have nothing to protect ourselves with. The least we can do is use the power we do have – “the voice is the voice of Jacob” – personal prayer and Psalms!
More and More Emuna
I was discussing with a friend last week that all of Rabbi Arush’s teachings to date were all preparation for RIGHT NOW. Rabbanit Arush mentioned when she brought a group of women with her to pray at Kever David Hamelech that everything that is happening is part of the final and most painful birur – clarification of souls.
You can’t sit on the fence anymore, nor can you hide. It’s time to choose if you’re with the Jewish people, or not. Your actions prove your decision! We see how many people are – thank You, Hashem! – keeping Shabbat for the first time, putting on tefillin and tzitzit, saying Psalms, more and more. The war is pushing us to action!
The key is to tone down thinking about the physical war and remember that the real war of Gog and Magog is spiritual! A spiritual war over each and every Jewish soul.
Will you hold onto your emuna? Will you pray, or be glued to your phone? And most importantly – will you be afraid – or will you be filled with emuna and trust in Hashem?
Evil in the world is rising, but it’s only a mirage. If you trust only in Hashem, nothing can touch you. Every bullet has an address. Ein od milvado – there is nothing besides God!
A few ideas to do in these times of distress:
- Say Shema: A proven segula for protection from the Zohar!
Shema Yisrael, Ado-nai Elo-henu, Ado-nai Echad. Then quietly – Baruch shem kavod malchuto l’olam vaed. When you say “malchuto” – pray for the revelation of Hashem as God, King Mashiach ben David, and rebuilding of the Holy Temple.
- Ein od milvado: Another proven segula is remembering that there is only Hashem, and He manages the world with perfect Divine providence. Nothing can harm you if it is not His will, and if it is His will, then it’s good and I accept Your will with love! See You Get What You Ask For.
- Hashem’s Name. This is from Rabbi Biton – imagine in your head the letters of Hashem’s name, י -ה- ו-ה. Imagine the letters getting bigger and bigger, filling up all the space in your mind. Whenever you are focused on this, you are focusing essentially on Hashem, you are with Hashem, and you are totally protected!
- Get your Segula for Protection from Rabbi Arush. With a similar donation of $60 a month for a year or more, you can also support Spiritual Iron Swords or Wartime Community Needs and still receive your segula. Make sure to contact the Editor to ensure that the segula is added to your thank you gift – email@example.com.
Those who continue to focus only on Hashem, who truly want to serve Hashem, who trust Hashem and know that He is the only real power, who stay away from “fallen fears” and “the might of my right hand,” who do lots of acts of loving-kindness and loving fellow Jews – Hashem will indeed save them, and they will merit to see Mashiach and outright miracles, very soon, amen!
This segula below was posted in Rabbi Arush’s weekly newsletter in Hebrew. Print it out and put it on your door as a segula for protecting your home from terrorists.
Rachel Avrahami grew up in Los Angeles, CA, USA in a far-off valley where she was one of only a handful of Jews in a public high school of thousands. She found Hashem in the urban jungle of the university. Rachel was privileged to read one of the first copies of The Garden of Emuna in English, and the rest, as they say, is history. She made Aliyah and immediately began working at Breslev Israel.
Rachel is now the Editor of Breslev Israel’s English website. She welcomes questions, comments, articles, and personal stories to her email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
