by Reb Akiva at Mystical Paths
"...and Yaakov went on his way." A pasuk commonly quoted by the Rebbe as the holy days ended and people began to head back out to their regular tasks. One can imagine after aliyat haregel, going up to the Beis HaMikdash to be by the Shechina for Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Succot, the somewhat depressing feeling of packing up and heading home to ones regular life. The Rebbe would always remind us, pack up the holiday experiences and take them home with you! Then, unpack a bit of them all year long.
While we've been focused on spending our month with G-d, the world has been busy going nuts...
- US Police Departments preparing for Election Day RIOTS.
- Dirty NUCLEAR attack on Israel thwarted by pirates?
- Massive US layoffs begin.
- Post US Election "Crisis" Scenario that reads LIKE THE NAVI ON GEULAH!
That last one is of special note. Written by a well known political blogger focused on Israel, the scenario presented (from current events and political background knowledge) reads EXACTLY like the biblical prophets end of days prophecies. The author IS NOT particularly religious, verses in the prophets or bringing a religious perspective. His scenario is completely created from current events, political background, and taking the direct words of those involved on their plans.
Dear friends, good Shabbos. As with the holy tanna Rabbi Akiva, when we see one of the words of the holy navi'im - the biblical prophets - coming true, we can know with certainly that they all will.
