by Reb Akiva @ Mystical Paths
I’ve received several copies of a geulah warning email going around…
i heard over this from a man israel who came here america to save jews// he went to rav kook from tibres & his friend to Rav Batzri from jeruselm and they both gave the same answer within year it will begin rosh hashana--hoshana rabba 5772 economy doller will fail the riot will start looting jewish business perscution of jews by black people"."
Let’s do a bit of a quick analysis and some explanation (from this confusing email).
As Dov bar Leib has written on Mystical Paths several times, according to the cosmic calendar, the Jewish year 5772 aligns with the mystical holy day of Hoshana Rabba. So has of this coming Rosh Hashana we are living the year of Hoshana Rabba (and on Hoshana Raba of this coming year, we are in Hoshana Raba of Hoshana Raba.)
Hoshana Raba is associated with the final sealing and beginning of application of judgments – those judgments brought down from Rosh Hashana through Yom Kippur. This is why the prayers of Hoshana Raba change from “annul the decrees” to “sweeten the severities”.
Accordingly, following the cosmic calendar, the year of Hoshana Raba brings an end to the opportunity for teshuva of the nations (whether through honest societal application or through pressure min hashamayim – from events directed from Heaven). The 10 days of teshuva (the period of Rosh Hashana through Yom Kippur) are ended, as is the extra “last chance” period that continues from Yom Kippur until Hoshana Raba. Any merits from the past are used up and the force of the current judgment comes into play.
The stability of the world through the cosmic 10 days of teshuva was exactly that, stable. The period of joy of the time of the cosmic Yom Kippur through the cosmic Sukkot (a specific period of simcha – joy) was without compare in the history of mankind. Wealth grew and flowed throughout most of the world, with healthcare, vaccinations and economic support reaching even the most dire regions of the world – and many poor nations moving to growth nations or even regional players.
But then comes Hashana Raba. The party ends, judgments are due.
The world financial situation is already almost at the point of no return. It is extremely EASY to look at MANY factors of the European Union and the United States and see things so far gone there’s almost no chance of recovery. Add in some natural disasters and it’s easy to predict chaos.
That’s what the warning above is about. That said, this is not the first (or second, third, or fourth) such warning from rabbis that we’ve heard go out (this year, last year, the year before, etc.) With current conditions it’s wise to prepare for national and international instability, wherever you are.
But prophecies? The accuracy rate is currently running, umm, not so good (to put it mildly).
