Many Blogs from the Moshiach Blog Network (Moshiach101.blogspot.com ) are talking about how the current situation is Eretz Yisrael is an opening for Moshiach. The Following are a compilation of quotes from these blgos on this topic.
A Certain Rav Fish Shlita heard in the name of a great Tzaddik of the Gedolei Yisrael Shlit”a:
The battle that began during these days in Gaza will not cease before World War 3 will develop from it. World War 3 is the terrifying Gog Umagog War that all the prophets prophesied about, through which in the process, the King Mashiah will be revealed and he will redeem us as an eternal redemption.
- The Gr”a on Tikkunei Zohar (Word doc, p. 88) says that everything about the Flood and the story with sending the dove can be explained about the current exile and the future Redemption. And it’s brought down in Seder Olam Rabba (chapter 4) that No’ah send the raven on Tammuz 10, then sent the dove the first time on Tammuz 17, and then sent it again on Tammuz 24. And on that same day – Tammuz 24 – the dove returned at evening time with an olive branch in its mouth.
- Operation Tzuk Eitan also started on Tammuz 10.
The fact that we are experiencing miracles every day lets us know that Hashem is completely running the show. There are so many subtle things that are overlooked by most, yet very significantly a message from Hashem. You probably saw in the news about the gas station that was completely destroyed when it was hit by a missile and went up in flames. What they didn’t tell you is that we are hearing about a particular gas station that refused to close on Shabbos, even though I believe all the other stations in that town did close. One question that has been asked: why is Israel still supplying electricity to Gaza? Do we enjoy helping our enemy so much, to facilitate their destroying us more efficiently? The Knesset seems to be more worried about world opinion than helping Israel. So Hashem decided to send a message. One of the rockets being sent to Israel hit a power line and knocked out power to about 70,000 Gaza residents. Netanyahu stated that it would be too dangerous for electric company personnel to go in and repair the damage. Cute!!! Hashem does what our leaders are afraid to do. I forgot to mention that the people under the leadership of the PA and Hamas who receive their utilities from Israel owe the electric company 1.5 billion shekels – they just don’t pay their bills. The electric company wants to cut them off, but the crazy, cowardly Knesset couldn’t do it. After all, they would have to answer to the world why we are not helping those who want to kill us.
- Rav Shmuel Weingurt adds that we find in the Midrash (Pesikta Rabati 37):
Ribbi Shimon ben Pazi said: At the moment that HKB”H raises the Mashiah until the heavens and spreads the glory of His honor over him because of the nations of the world, in front of the wicked Persians, He tells him, “Efraim [a nickname of Mashiah]! Our righteous Mashiah! Judge these people and do with them whatever you want for were it not for the mercy which overcame you in the extreme, they would have already destroyed you from the world in one second.
We see from here, that during the Redemption, the Persians will act in one second.
“KikarHashabat writes about a s”ביום ההוא is in gematria 75 but how does that connect to the redemption??? And that’s when I realized we are in the year 5774 and next year which is less than 3 months away is the year 5775 – and that will be the day ביום ההוא יהיה השם אחד”
A soldier who went to the Sadigere rebbe to get a brocha before the ground invasion in Gaza. The rebbe gave him a blessing and advised him to take the Sefer “Noam Elimelech” with him. A bullet penetrated his chest but was deflected because of the sefer.”http://www.kikarhashabat.co.il/חייל-ניצל-בזכות-הספר-נועם-אלימלך.html
A Rav went to Rav Chaim Kanievsky, shlita, recently to ask for a haskamah (approval) letter for his soon to be published book. The book is about Eicha, lamentations that we read on Tisha B’Av. Rav Chaim said it won’t be needed this year. Rav Chaim, who recently told us that Moshiach is at the door, is hinting to the fact that the mourning and fasting of Tisha B’Av will revert to a feast day. Tradition has it that when Moshiach is announced, Tisha B’Av will change from a fast day of lamentations to a feast day of celebration. Does that mean that Moshiach will be announced within the next three weeks? With all that is happening in the world, especially in Israel, I think it is looking very good!
“In connection to the war, redemption, and Moshiach, I remembered seeing a video of the Lubavitch Rebbe telling Bibi in 1990 (today Israel’s Prime Minister) many things have progressed but what hasn’t changed, however, is that Moshiach hasn’t come. The Rebbe tells Bibi “there are still a few hours left in the day, so try to bring him today!”. The Rebbe told Bibi Netanyahu 24 years ago who at the time was a mere Knesset member that he has power to hasten the Moshiach’s arrival and today we see that this prophecy may be coming to fruition.”
A group of New Yorkers gathered to rally for Israel in Times Square Sunday afternoon, as the first major ground battle in two weeks between Israel and Hamas militants left dozens dead.
