In this previous post I list a number of reports of the imminent geulah (complete redemption). Through comments left I was led via links to these:
The blog Yeranen Yaakov has this post about it, which points to this critical info:
- The End of Days blog added these comments:
In the 50s there was a Holy Sandlar (shoe maker) who lived in Bnei Brak, who upon dying left notes with certain mekubalim (kabbalists) that were to be delivered just before the Six Day War in 1967, the Yom Kippur War, and the Gulf War, describing those wars. There may have been one more note. Rumor exists that a final note will announce the coming of Mashiach (the messiah). But it is supposed to be his note, not Mashiach's written announcement. Who is this Sandlar anyway? I personally know three sandlars who live in Yerushalayim. There are at least 100 more. I could ask if the three that I know have been delivering messages for Mashiach, but I am sure they would then attach the right upper to the left sole.
The story lacks anyone who is willing to take accountability for their statements.
- End of Days also adds this:
With the Chacham Avraham and Mordechai Eliyahu [that's the hebrew video in my previous post}, their reputations are at stake. They are both wonderful tzaddikim, who want to give true hope to Am Yisrael and all righteous gentiles.
In short since my wife is a professional transcriber not me, the Chacham Avraham Chai's statement is about how it is possible that especially now the complete redemption can come in spite he has not come for thousands of years, in spite of the fact that during all that time many tzaddikim and holy Jews have lived and died. In this vein he added that this very month of Nissan in the year 5765 is the month of the promised redemption (at least the beginning of the promised redemption). He then urged Jews to increase their tshuva (repentence), reading of Psalms, learning of Torah, because right now "the time is very valuable". After Mashiach comes, the reward for these mitzvahs will not be as great as it is now.
On the other hand, it would be wonderful if Mashiach could come in the way that is described by the "Sandlar's" letter. Otherwise the process could take up to seven or eight years. If we deserve it, he could come in an instant. I prefer way number two. Yet, G-d may have a lesson or two to teach out of this process if He thinks that we should be redeemed by the slower approach.
The Sandlar's letter would be more credible if the Sandlar himself would come forward and tell us that he knows where Mashiach is and that the written letter is his message.
If perchance this is actually a letter from the Sandlar of Bnei Brak and if the Gog Israeli website became confused in that the Sandlar of Bnei Brak was the actual author of the letter and that the the delivery person was a mekubal from Yerushalayim, then watch out for you have not seen anything yet.
- Jerusalem Mandate blog reads the letter [in my previous post] and ties it together with a series of news reports about the start of possible Super Volcanoes...
"In the last four months the earth experienced the largest three earthquakes in the last two hundred years. The under water volcanoes and earthquakes have gone up 88% over the last three years. The continental earthquakes have gone up by 62% during the same time frame. The rate of increase of these earthquakes and volcanoes when drawn against time is staggering."
MSNBC has a further article on this topic...
"Super eruptions are up to hundreds of times larger than these," said Stephen Self of Britain's Open University.
"An area the size of North America can be devastated, and pronounced deterioration of global climate would be expected for a few years following the eruption," Self said. "They could result in the devastation of world agriculture, severe disruption of food supplies, and mass starvation. These effects could be sufficiently severe to threaten the fabric of civilization."
Self and his colleagues at the Geological Society of London presented their report to the British government's Natural Hazard Working Group.
"Although very rare, these events are inevitable, and at some point in the future humans will be faced with dealing with and surviving a super eruption," Stephen Sparks of the University of Bristol told LiveScience in advance of Tuesday's announcement.
- As an interesting coincidence (coincidence, eh?) the U.S. television network NBC will be starting a series on the (non-Jewish) book of revelation.
"NBC’s miniseries based on the Book of Revelation may seem the latest signpost on the road to Armageddon."
“The news that we take our morning coffee with really makes us realize that anything can happen,” said executive producer David Seltzer, who created and wrote the series. “And not only that, all the signs and signals of the Bible in regard to the End of Days really are in play.”
What can you say when prime time television start's aligning with statements of tzaddikim (saints), gedolim (the masters), and mekulablim (the kabbalists)? Coincidence?
