Who Owns This Land?

                                                                   בס"ד
There is no land in the world that is more controversial than the land of Israel.  Wars have been fought over it and, for some strange reason, this country, the size of the state of New Jersey, is in the news and on the agenda of many governments and the United Nations, more than any other country in the world (except, perhaps, for the US of A).  Why?

The answer has a similar connotation to another popular topic – Jew hatred.  It is all from the Owner of the land, Who wants the most important place in the universe to thrive.  Who is the real Owner of the land?  HASHEM!!!!!!!!!!  Of course; He owns the entire universe, so the Land of Israel is on the same deed.  But, what did the Owner say about the land?  Also, in all fairness to the world, especially those who don’t go by the word of this Owner, what does international law say about this land?

Israel was the name given to Jacob after he fought the angel, Genesis 32:25-29.  Hashem also told Jacob directly that he would be called Israel.  The country was named the Land of Israel meaning that Hashem told Jacob, or Israel, that this land belongs to his descendants.  Of course, this was the same message that was given to Jacob’s father, Isaac and his grandfather, Abraham.  Later it was told to Moses and all the Israelites (called as such since they were the descendants of Israel).  The Jews, or as they were referred to in the time of Abraham, the Hebrews have dwelled in this land for over 3700 years.  Even with exiles, which were accompanied with the destruction of the Temples and more, there has always been a Jewish presence in the land of Israel.  So it looks like, biblically, the Land of Israel belongs to the Jews and has for thousands of years.  All the peoples who were in the land, the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites and any other Parasites (I made up the last one) were all occupiers and not owners of the land.

Moses was even told exactly where the borders are.  Miraculously, those borders match the area that the Jews live in today.  This is a map from Artscoll (right) depicting the borders that Moses was told would be the land for the Israelites.  I am comparing the map to a satellite view which shows what we call the Green line, the area the Jews live in today. This is the area that has produced because of our return to the land (left) as the Torah prophesied (that is why it is green).  What a coincidence (I know, there is no such thing) that the borders described in the Torah match the area where Jews are today – this must be the end of days.

We are told in the Bible that when the Jews return to their homeland, this land that has remained desolate for 1880 years will miraculously start to produce.  After 1948 this totally useless land that many cultures tried unsuccessfully to cultivate, became some of the most fertile producing farmland in the world.  Hundreds of millions of trees have been planted since 1948 and Israel in present time exports produce in great quantity.  They even designated the area where the Jews live “the green line” since the areas where non-Jews live is still not fertile and still remains desert (check the satellite picture above).  This is a strong message from Hashem that His people are returning and the end of history, as we know it, is about to occur.

One question that I have is how long do you have to live in the land before you are considered a permanent dweller and not a SETTLER?  If 3700 years isn't enough, then the entire world, especially the US, should be called settlements.  After all, when the Colonists occupied the land that belonged to the British, French, Spanish, Dutch, Germans, the Indians (let us not forget them), etc, were they called occupiers and settlers?  Why is Israel under a different standard than other nations?  Rhetorical question -- I know the answer.

Let’s talk international law.

With the second exile in the year 68, some crazy Roman renamed the country Palestine (mostly because he couldn’t pronoun Philistine).  Even in the 1880 years, that the country was erroneously called Palestine, there was still a presence by its designated owner, the Jews.  Here is the funny part: before 1948, the Palestinians were the Jews.  I have neighbors who were born here before 1948 who joke about the fact that they were the real Palestinians.  The Arabs would never use that name and, in turn, called themselves Syrians, Lebanese, Jordanians, Egyptians, etc.  In other words they went by their place of birth, since they were not of the land of Israel.

When Palestine finally returned to its proper name, the Jews returned to the name Israeli in 1948.  The Arabs didn’t accept that name at all.  It is important to note that Palestine was never a sovereign nation and that the name the land of Israel goes back thousands of years – not made up in 1948.  What is my proof?  Do you remember King David, King Solomon, King etc, etc, etc, they were the kings of Israel, not Palestine, not Canaan and not of any other name.

In 1964, the Palestine Liberation Organization, PLO, formed.  It was a terrorist group under Yasser Arafat with the help of Abu Mazen, who we know now by his other name Mahmoud Abbas (he put on a suit to try to look less like a terrorist and more like a decent person – it didn’t work).  They started a very well organized propaganda campaign and pretended that the Arabs who live in Israel were the real Palestinians.

The British Mandate (in effect, British rule) of Palestine, including the Balfour Declaration, was confirmed by the League of Nations in 1922 at the San Remo conference.  It came into effect by treaty in 1923.  The boundaries of Palestine were drawn by the British and included modern Jordan, which was called Trans-Jordanian Palestine (you mean there is a Palestine that exists today that is much bigger than Israel and is being hidden and lied about?).  The declaration included the wording “His Majesty's government view with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.”  Watch this excellent short video.  It says a lot:


This eventually led to the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 by the newly formed United Nations.  The problem was that the UN took away 82% of the land designated for the Jews including most of the area that was biblical Israel.  This was done by a UN resolution, which by international law is not binding and definitely does not replace a treaty.  It was well known that the United States State Department advised the then President Harry Truman to sign in favor of the Jewish state, but only because the US was convinced that 5 mighty Arab armies would obliterate this new nation.  How noble of the US and many other Jew-hating countries who thought they had the next “final solution.”

Hashem had other plans.  To this day the US military will never teach the tactics of the Israeli military used in the 1948 war since miracles aren’t part of military tactical training.  Israel had no army to speak of, no armament to fight with and only One top General to lead them – Hashem.  I guarantee that Israel in every war that followed (1956, 1967, 1973, 1982, 1991, 2006, and all the terrorist attacks in between) was not as mighty as they thought and has always relied on great miracles to experience the success they enjoyed.

So what does it mean when you see in the news how Israel is constantly trying to occupy Arab land?  It is the most effective propaganda from terrorist groups and has the complete support of the Jew-hating media and Jew hating nations of the world.  All of the land from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea is Israel by international law.  The only way that land can be given to someone else is by a legal treaty such as the treaty that resulted from the San Remo Conference, 1920 (ratified by 51 nations), that gave the Land of Palestine back to its owners, the Jews.  The UN resolution of 1947, the Oslo Accord of 1993 and any other bogus agreements to give the land away are not legal by international law – it can only be accomplished with a treaty, not a resolution and not an accord.

Another consideration is that any country that is attacked and wins territory in that war, keeps it according to the Geneva Convention.  Why does Israel have to give back land to Arab terrorist organizations that they won in war, and belonged to Israel in the first place?  What is even more interesting is that the 19 years that Judea and Samaria were in the hands of the Jordanians according to the UN Resolution, Jordan never annexed the land.  In other words, the so-called West Bank was never a part of sovereign Jordan.  Why?  Jordan really didn’t want the land, they, as today were only interested in getting rid of the so-called Palestinian refugees who were living in Jordan.

The Arabs of the Middle East have about 650 times the amount of land that the Jews have.  If we talk about Islamist countries, we increase to over 1000 times the land area that the Jews have.  The Jews are in great shortage of land, the Arabs are not.  What is even worse is that the Arabs don’t even want the land.  When we hear speeches in English they talk of the horrors of the Jews stealing their land.  When they talk in Arabic (in their mosques, for instance) they tell their true agenda – we want all the infidels dead, the world is meant to be totally Muslim.  What is even sadder is their popular expression “first the Saturday people, then the Sunday people.”  In other words the bottom line is to kill all the non-Muslims and make the entire planet Islamic. It is even in the Quran that if an individual accepts Islam, he is allowed to live; if he doesn’t accept Islam he must die.  They are making great strides since the Jew-hating gentile world supports their efforts even though it would mean the demise of all gentile nations.  I wish Israel’s propaganda was that good.  Bottom line is the only occupied territory in Israel is the Arabs occupying Jewish land (by international law).

All this is prophesied in the Torah.  In the book of Deuteronomy 32:21, Hashem tells us “They have moved Me to jealousy with that which is not G-d, they have provoked Me to anger with their vanities; and I will move them to jealousy with those which are a non-people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish, senseless nation.”  In other words, Hashem is telling us that when we are not doing His will (since Israel is being run by a secular government that does a lot of improper things) he will provoke us with a vile people who are not a sovereign nation but, as in this case a bunch of terrorists, pretending to be a government.

There was an organization that wrote an article in their newly published magazine several years ago.  They said “We know the land belongs to you, but as long as you fear people more than you fear G-d, you do not deserve the land.”  Who said such a truism?  It appeared in the first addition of the new Al Qaeda magazine.  Our enemy knows more about our mistakes than we do, since Hashem uses them to bring us around to what we are supposed to be doing in this world.

It is interesting to note that Jerusalem, the so-called third holiest city to Islam, is not even mentioned in the Quran – that’s right zero times you will find Jerusalem.  However, it does say in the Quran that the land promised to Moses is for the Jews – all of it.

Mohammed was honest and acknowledged the special relationship of the Jewish people with G-d and the land He gave them:
[Sura 5:20] Recall that Moses said to his people (the Jews), "O my people, remember G-D's blessings upon you: He appointed prophets from among you, made you kings, and granted you what He never granted any other people."
[Sura 5:21] "O my people, enter the holy land (Israel) that G-D has decreed for you, and do not rebel, lest you become losers."
Later in the Quran, in order to make it clear and leave no doubts that the G-d of the Jews had given ownership of the land to the Jews and even set the mission of the Jews, Mohammed took additional time to repeat the writing of the Torah in Sura 7 about the Jews and Moses:
[Sura 7:137] "We let the oppressed people inherit the land, east and west, and we blessed it. The blessed commands of your L-rd were thus fulfilled for the Children of Israel, to reward them for their steadfastness, and we annihilated the works of Pharaoh and his people and everything they harvested."
[Sura 7:144] He said, "O Moses, I have chosen you (the Jews), out of all the people, with My messages and by speaking to you. Therefore, take what I have given you and be appreciative."
I really wish Israel’s propaganda was that good!  If Israel would start telling the truth about the land, the people who own it and the history that created it, the world would respect Israel much more.  After the war of independence in 1948 and the Six Day War of 1967 there were no Arabs in Israel.  The world respected the fact until the secular government (I will avoid names here) decided to invite the Arabs back.  They thought they were being politically correct and showing the world their benevolence.  They only lost total respect from the other nations.  They set themselves up for much more suffering, and worst of all they ignored Hashem, Who arranged for the Arabs to be gone.  As quoted above when we are not doing Hashem’s will, He will punish us with a non-people, a vile nation to straighten us out.

We are our worst enemy.  It is believed that if we had accepted Hashem’s gift of no Arabs at the end of the 1967 war, the Moshiach would have come then.  Why do we not live the Absolute Truth as individuals and as a nation?  Why do we not accept that Hashem’s plan for our happiness and total success in this world is a flawless plan?  We have such tremendous proof from history of its validity and effectiveness.  It will take Moshiach to change it all, hopefully today or tomorrow at the latest.

Also, wouldn't it be nice if the world knew and lived the Absolute Truth?  If we followed Hashem, He would guarantee the world would change and do the right thing.  What a easy solution to all the world’s problems – Hashem!

Message from Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi, Shlita, Parashat Vayishlach, 10 Kislev 5776 (22/11/15)


בס"ד
King of Kings, G-d, Creator of the World, is the leader of the world and the world is only His. G-d will decide what will happen in each country, what will be destroyed and what will be built, what will be flooded, which will have disasters and conflict – these things G-d determines and not man. G-d speaks through the forces of nature, it is hidden. You do not hear G-d's voice and you do not see Him, the forces of nature are his sight, voice, and hints. The world has freedom of choice and G-d is acting secretly; He runs and revives the world. G-d is tired; He is ridding the world of impurity, hatred, and murder. G-d wants us to obey the commandments and there will be a new world of kindness. This is what G-d is doing in the world. The believer will be blessed and will have entrance into the new world; the non-believer will continue to suffer.

G-d is very angry and those who want to give away parts of the Holy Land - don't you dare. The state of Israel, the Holy Land belongs to G-d alone! No one has ownership on the state of Israel and the Jews living in it!

Everything that is happening in the world, in Europe and other countries is a red light to the Jews - run, run, run while you still can and come to Israel, and only to Israel. Jews living in the US and Europe should not test G-d. In Europe the Jews are telling the entire world that they will continue to fight terror. They are mistaken, they are fighting against G-d's will to bring them to Israel and they will lose their lives. G-d is showing signs since 1948, when Israel was established: 'Come only to the Holy Land.' The state of Israel, the Holy Land, is protected from all of the countries in the world only for the Jews. There is salvation since 1948, and there is the Messiah acting in secret, and G-d wants to crown him and build the third Temple in this generation! The material and money keep the Jews abroad, G-d is warning them: if you do not come now, no one will buy your home and property from you; they will run to save their skins and lives and they will come to Israel in shame, not with honor. It is not without reason that G-d is attacking the earth with the forces of nature, attacking Europe and other countries with anti-Semitism, ISIS and extreme Muslims. Just like there is a storm at sea, so it is on earth. The whole world is getting the ten harsh plagues one after the other.

In Israel, the Jews must be vigilant. Be wary of every place, every city, be vigilant so that you are safe and protected. If you are complacent and act in a belittling manner, you will not be protected by G-d.

In Egypt G-d brought the ten plagues so that the people of Israel would wake up and come back to life, and the Egyptians were punished. Now the entire world is Egypt. The first salvation will be small - the last one will be big, the same idea; the Messiah is coming from the desert and is in Israel. G-d is bringing the ten plagues to the world so that the Jews see and fear the Father in Heaven.

G-d is asking the Jews to pray three times a day: Shaharit, Minha, and Arvit, to set times for Torah and to mention G-d and thank Him for all that is good and not good. When a Jew accepts torment and pain with love and joy, G-d gives him good and healing because he believes that it is from G-d for his own good. Jews must turn all that is bitter to sweet.

G-d is telling his Jewish children not to believe the goyim because they want to destroy the people of Israel. They want to control and turn everything to extreme Islam, they don't want peace. The peace they are asking is a trap for Israel to take more land and destroy the state of Israel, heaven forbid. That is their true plan.

G-d is telling the Jews: the choice is in your hands; since the first man, there has been freedom of choice. Watch over yourselves, choose to watch over yourselves. G-d is protecting the people of Israel and there is a cloud of fire around the borders of Israel, but you must still choose to watch over yourself. If Jews do not care for themselves, they get prideful and begin to belittle G-d, heaven forbid, so G-d belittles them. This whole process is G-d preparing us for salvation and the crowning of the Messiah as King in our generation.

The world thinks that ISIS is a state - this is a mistake. Every state has 30% that can turn, in one second, into ISIS and extreme Muslims. Hamas, ISIS, Palestinians, and extreme Islamists have rules of their own. They have lost their minds and want to rule the world. In France they ask who the brains behind the attacks were, but the world doesn't know that for each "brain" and leader, there are 200 lieutenants.

Dear Jews living abroad: come to Israel urgently! You won't have time to take clothes to wear, come now, sell everything and come! In Israel there is everything you need, gold, diamonds, iron, copper, oil, gas, all in abundance and G-d is in Israel! Israel, the land of the deer, and deer skin stretches. Jews be patient, there is everything in Israel, beautiful view, beautiful land, beautiful people, beautiful and good Jews, and G-d wants to do good to the people of Israel, so long as you believe in Him and do not pity the cruel.

Every Jew that was murdered and has his blood spilled on the ground is crying out to G-d to forgive and have mercy on the people of Israel. The government of Israel must stop being naive, be united and consolidated and get the refugees out of Israel in a legal manner. Anyone that is not allowed to be in Israel must be taken out by law. In France there are French, in England there are British, in Turkey there are Turks, in Egypt there are Egyptians, and in Israel there are Jews! Israel has been a country of Jews for generations and not a mixed country. Jews outside of Israel must stop saying that they are doing well; they are lying - they are threatened, the economy is being erased before their eyes!

The state of Israel must not worry about the ban in Europe and must not get angry. Be smart. Listen, Jews: anyone who harms the state of Israel, the Jews in Israel - G-d will give them complications from the forces of nature or conflict within themselves and they will be destroyed. G-d will teach them a lesson about banning the Jews and will not forget any country that goes against Israel - He will strike them with one hundred plagues, not ten!

Armageddon is only outside of Israel! Chaos is only outside of Israel! The world, outside of Israel, is a catastrophe! Even those who didn't believe two years ago, believe now! Jews, do not be afraid, Armageddon is overseas, in Israel everything is good.

All of the terrorists must be neutralized at the source. There are gangs of leaders in Hebron that are being trained with weapons. There is a "snake head" that is guiding all of the Palestinians and Hamas - he must be crushed! They promise money and women, give them drugs and make them cruel.

In Egypt, Sisi must be vigilant and watch over himself from the people around him. He is the best king in Egypt. He is next in line to be harmed. Sisi, if you want to overcome and succeed, clean all of Sinai desert. Start with the border of Eilat towards the Red Sea and El Arish. This entire area must be cleaned, their masterminds are there. If you don't do that, there will be harsh complications in Egypt, like there are in Syria.

Turkey is next in line to be like Syria. Arduan is in deep with ISIS, the economy is getting worse, everything is getting worse.

Jordan, the Jordanian king and four million refugees are going crazy, they do not know what to do, and are getting destroyed every day.

In Iraq there is chaos, no law and order, it is a ghost country.

Syria is destroyed. The Russians are destroying it. Everyone wants to destroy it and it will eventually be destroyed.

Iran is happy and dancing from everything that is happening in the world - it has been forgotten. It is dancing at two weddings; the United States and Russia have left it alone for now. Iran continues to make the atomic and chemical bombs. It is deathly afraid of Israel. If Iran tries to do something to Israel - G-d will erase it from the face of the earth. It is a done deal - do not worry!

In Europe, the attacks will continue and with much more force. All of Europe will be in fear. The entire world will face huge terrorist attacks. The United States is next.

Jews in the Unites States don't wait for them to come to you. Sell your property now and come to Israel!

White and black collars, thieves and bribers, rapists and adulterers will all be revealed in the media. If they repent instead, G-d will not reveal them in the media and will forgive them.

Dear Jews - have patience! G-d wants to save more Jews in the first circle. Everything has an end. In the heavens, G-d, the angels, and the righteous are waiting for the day of the crowning of the Messiah and building the third Temple in our generation. It is 100% in this generation! Only G-d has the date for the crowning, not the angels nor anyone else.   G-d wants to surprise the world with goodness and love! The day will come and it is near, there will be great joy for the people of Israel! All of the pain will turn into joy!

A Follow-up to Yesterday’s Post

בס"ד

I receive this excellent comment to my post yesterday. I wanted more people to see the comment and my thoughts on the subject. First the comment:
Stephen Williamson has left a new comment on your post "A Comment Answered":

Regarding the thought that we Noahides may be a part of the lost tribes, one of my beloved teachers taught that when the Torah was offered to the nations of the world (before it was offered to the Jews), the nations all rejected Torah. However, in every nation there were the people in the back of the crowd who put their hands up saying "Hey, what about us, we will accept Torah, look at us, we want to take it on." Those people are now able to accept their portion of Torah and are becoming active Noahides. Some of us realize that we may not have a Jewish soul but we have a Jewish heart. We do not seek conversion, but we stand by and support the Jews and Torah and Hashem. I wish the very best for our friend in Brazil, and I hope he realizes that if he is meant to become Jewish, he will find a way to do so. As for the cost of conversion, yes, it is expensive. Some of us will require a Bris, the cost of creating a Kosher kitchen, the cost of tefillin and talit all add up to make conversion a very expensive prospect. As in a previous comment, there are ways to raise the cash needed, and many people out there who would be willing to help out.
My thoughts:

Thank you for this excellent comment. You are correct that there will be many non-Jews to whom Hashem will give a very happy future. It is brought down that Israel will be renamed Jerusalem, and that all the remaining land in the world will be called the holy land. It will be a world of goodness and righteousness for everyone. There is nothing written that says all the world will become Jewish, just that all the world will become monotheistic following the One Living G-d.

My speculation is that all the lost tribes, which could be a large population these days, could be showing up as groups like Noachides. The Noachides that I have had the privileged of meeting have been more spiritual and righteous than many observant Jews that I have known. They truly feel and want the goodness of Hashem. I just speculate that they will find themselves returning to Israel, or Jerusalem along with the known Jews of the world. I have had complaints from Noachides that they would like to live in Israel and that they feel deprived at not having a "right of return," as the Jews have. I am saying maybe they do have the "right of return" as a member of another tribe. After all, that means they did live here before.

I know that Hashem will take care of His faithful and that the happy ending will be a very happy beginning for all those who feel Hashem in their hearts, Jew or non-Jew.

I agree that becoming observant and following all the commandments can be expensive, but let me let you in on a secret (this is a secret, so make sure you tell everyone). Those who truly love Hashem and want to do His will also find that Hashem provides and eliminates any hardships or barriers. I am amazed at how many people I have known, including myself, that investments of many types became much more successful at the time of need -- the fulfilling Hashem's requirements. Nothing has been more obvious in my life than the idea that the closer I want to be to Hashem, the luckier I seem to be in everything. I am going to admit it, but there were times that I needed large sums of money to serve Hashem and a relative passed away months before with a big inheritance check coming exactly when I needed it. I feel bad about that happening, but the timing was such a strong and obvious message to my family from Hashem. There is no such thing as luck; there is only the mercy of and help from Hashem. It may not happen right away, since this is the world of testing and Hashem wants us to be completely convinced of His ways, but it definitely happens. You may find many who would disagree with what I am saying, but they will find out at the time of Geula that it was their shortcomings that held them back, not Hashem's merciful system.

I received an excellent comment from one of my favorite readers, who has become a long-distance friend. The concern is for righteous non-Jews, but my reply is as pertinent to Jews as it is to any non-Jew. First the comment:

Hello Menachem!!!
I would like to ask you two things. First:
Why the Bnei Noach sit as if they were part of Am Israel?! I say this, least the Bnei Noach pello of Brazil, I heard from many that feel like they belong to the Bnei Israel.
For me (and I believe that for many other Bnei Noach), we feel like we're part of Am Israel, even without belonging officially (I mean conversion).

Since I discovered the absolute truth, when I was 13 years old (I'm 27 years old), I have come to love and be faithful Am Israel with all my strength that love and fidelity only grew each day.
I unfortunately still have not converted (after almost 14 years of waiting) because I have no financial conditions, because I am very poor (financially), and in Brazil the conversions cost around $4500 (cost of time of Rav and lessons - in Chabad Lubavitch).

Another question:
Because you think the Bnei Noach are people who belong to the lost tribes?! Please, I know it's a very extensive to be treated here, but I believe it is a great gift of Hanukkah (no size) to the Bnei Noach as I, S.C. and many other hundreds or thousands of Bnei Noach in the world who read your blog. :) Please!!!
My answer to this very special concerned reader and friend:

I could write another book in covering all that you question, but I will try to be concise. First of all, know that as you talk of your love for Am Yisroel, know that all real Jews have a very deep love for you and all righteous non-Jews. The problem is for thousands of years there was no love between us, only persecution, hatred and pain.

The much more important love is that from Hashem. His love is what is important to each one of us, Jew and non-Jew alike. I have mentioned numerous times that this world is the world of testing. Your particular situation is what Hashem has given you because He knows that you need such testing. It is actually good news, since He only give severe tests to those who are worthy of His kindness and mercy. In other words, when Hashem pays this much attention to you, you have to be very special in His eyes. I know from our correspondence over many months that you are very special, as well as many of my readers. The most important thing for you is to have complete faith that Hashem is helping you to a wonderful future, which appears to be imminent. Your testing will not be much longer. I know of several possibilities that would make you very, very happy, but I can't talk about anything until I see the absolute conclusion, especially for individuals like yourself.

The idea of you being a possible member of a lost tribe is my speculation. It is based on the fact that population growth in this world would dictate it. Because we had about 600,000 men (about 2 1/2 to 3 million Israelites) 3328 years ago, who left Egypt, that population would be tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions today. Who are they in the world today? The faithful, the ones who feel the love of Hashem and live to follow His ways. That is definitely not a big number, but when we are looking at 7.3 billion to choose from, hundreds of millions is small. We have a prophecy in Zachariah 13:8 that “Two-thirds of the people in the land will be cut off and die,” which will happen in the end of days, now. Through war, natural disasters, etc, there will only be approximately 2.4 billion people left for the time of redemption and Moshiach. We also know from scriptures that all the wicked will be gone and only the faithful, righteous people will remain. We also know that the wicked are very much ignored by Hashem, since we are on this Earth with this life to perfect ourselves and to achieve the best possible eternity that we can.

Hashem helps the righteous who are destined to a tremendous future. In what form is His help? Testing. As it says at the end of Malachi, the last of the prophets, the righteous will have the toughest times, and wonder why the wicked seem to be thriving. Hashem will judge each individual to see no matter how tough life gets, who stayed faithful to Hashem. The end will be the righteous who worked hard to pass the tests will survive, thrive and reap the reward of a wonderful life beyond our wildest imagination. The wicked, who look like they are getting by easily these days, will be wiped out completely and even punished after they leave this life.

I know I repeat myself, but it all comes down to measure for measure for every individual and even every country. If Brazil is so difficult and so wicked to good people, Brazil will get its just reward or punishment (guaranteed that we are talking about the individual leaders who have caused the evil).

Keep up the good work of turning to Hashem for everything and know the time of change is very soon, B”H.

One last note is that I have never heard of conversion being that expensive even though a proper conversion does take years. My hope is that what the Arizal said is very valid here. He said that anyone who converts for the right reason, a true love of Hashem, is really a Jew from birth. They were Jewish in a previous life, but needed to go through the process of conversion in this life by passing difficult testing. That is how their perfection is achieved. Moshiach will be able to tell each individual that he or she is actually Jewish. The conversion process will not be needed, just a very concise learning program.  This will result in Hashem instilling a higher level of a Jewish soul into the individual; but, if the person had the potential from birth, it is a definite result.  If this sounds different from what Rav Nir Ben Artzi was saying, let me clarify that he was talking about those who may be converting for the wrong reason, such as a love of a spouse rather than a love of Hashem.  Hashem is sorting it all out, and every deserving person will get a deserving future, Jew or non-Jew.

You may be poor financially, but you are rich spiritually and that is the best investment for a very lucrative future.

Message from Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi, Shlita, Parashat Vayeitzei, 3 Kislev 5776, (15/11/15)

בס"ד
King of Kings, G-d, Creator of the World, created us for Him and this world is His. He did not create this world so that we can eat and kill each other; He created this world for kindness, so that we can forgive each other and love each other. He created this world so that we obey the commandments. He created this world and the state of Israel, the Holy Land. He created the Jews to live in the state of Israel, the Holy Land, which is the source of blessing and prosperity in the world. G-d is protecting the state of Israel and the Holy Land and the Jews living in Israel.

G-d is very angry when they want to takes parts, even a centimeter, of Israel - they shouldn't dare! The state of Israel, the Holy Land belongs to G-d alone, and no one can claim it! G-d wants to put here, in the state of Israel; all of the Jews in the world should come to Israel urgently!

What is happening in the world and in Europe is a red light for the Jews. Europe is becoming Muslim. ISIS, Hamas, Muslims and Palestinians - it is all the same. G-d is showing the Jews that things are not easy in Europe and the world, and that they need to come here quickly to live in Israel, urgently, life is priceless!

Any country, president or man that harms Israel and the Jewish nation in Israel, like Europe banned products from Israel - G-d will take care of them harshly. He will harm them, create complications and conflict between them, and add the forces of nature to harm them. The ban in Europe won't do them any good, they will fall and lose; the economy is in the hands of G-d and not anyone else. All of the countries in the world should be careful not to mess with Israel! Do not harm the Holy Land, it does not belong to you and do not harm the Jews in the Holy Land!

The world is being renewed. The old world is being destroyed and a new world of peace and love is rising in its place. G-d is showing the entire world that His control and power is everywhere. G-d is giving the world ten plagues like there were in Egypt in the first redemption, so that the Jews see the miracles and the gentiles feel fear and don't mess with Israel.

ISIS is very evil; they have no right or wrong. They are proving to everyone that they are in control so that they are feared. ISIS and the Muslims want to make the world extremely Muslim. There will continue to be bloodshed by ISIS and many other people, with the goal of turning the world Muslim. It won't do them any good - they will not succeed.

All of the Jews in the world must come to Israel! The best protection in the world for the Jews is the state of Israel! There is nothing missing in Israel. There is plenty of work. Anything a person wants is in abundance.

Anyone that goes overseas should go only for a bar mitzvah, wedding, good deeds, etc. The rich, those that invest or are going to invest overseas, can go in peace and come in peace, if it benefits the state of Israel. Whoever benefits himself will lose. Whoever benefits the state of Israel and himself will succeed. This is only for the very rich, others must not do this; they will lose their money.

Jews, be very careful of assimilation in Israel and the world. Whoever lives with a gentile, there is still a chance to convert them and come to Israel. Very soon the Messiah King will be crowned, in this generation! After that, you will not be able to convert anymore.  G-d is creating chaos in the world. Armageddon is outside of Israel, not in Israel! G-d is bringing confusion to the world, a big Babel Tower. He is confusing people in the world; they don't know who is who and what is what. Everyone that goes against Israel and all the haters of Israel - the ground will open up and swallow them.

There are a lot of doubts in the Israeli government; the US is promising them money. Woe unto them if they sell even one centimeter of the Holy Land for money; Israel do not panic and do not be persuaded. G-d is calling the people of Israel: "Come to me and I will help, I will save and protect you!"

The tunnels from Gaza to Israel - They continue to dig 24 hours a day. Hamas wants to surprise the settlements and IDF bases. The IDF, Shabak, Mossad, and government must look carefully into the tunnels from Gaza. Do not believe them, they do not want peace. They want to take Israel away and throw the Jews into the ocean. If there is no Israel, there will not be one Jew left on the planet; they want the world to belong only to the Muslims.

The Arabs in the north, south, and east Jerusalem are not innocent. There are conspiracies in Hebron, and they are practicing their shooting. Do not believe any Arab, friend or no friend. Do not believe anyone in these tough times. Respect and be wary of them.

Syria is being erased and destroyed. ISIS will destroy it, the Hezbollah, Turkey, and Iraq.

In Egypt, the extreme Islamists and ISIS want to harm Sisi, they don't stop. Sisi must be careful from those who guard him. Other than the hunger in Egypt, there is also unemployment, harsh plagues in Egypt that will continue.

Iran is in panic and shock from Israel. Iran wants to be a power. If they get chemical and atomic bombs, they will be a power, heaven forbid.

Jordan is waiting to put all four million refugees on the border of Israel that is why they want peace.

The state of Israel is protected and guarded; a cloud of fire surrounds Israel. People of Israel, do not worry about the ban. G-d will teach them a lesson. They will fall on their swords and their bows will break, they will have conflict and chaos.

Purity is fighting impurity; impurity is dying and committing suicide to harm purity.

The forces of nature, harsh winds, rain and floods, earthquakes, fire and volcanic eruptions, complications on earth and Armageddon abroad - these are the ten plagues of Egypt. Today, every plague is like a hundred plagues. The Jews in Israel should be happy with what you have; believe in G-d and all the good He is giving us. Despite the hard things in Israel, keep living life as usual, with confidence and faith.

All of the corrupt individuals, thieves, cheats, both white and black collars, G-d is cleaning and revealing them all. Whoever repents and stops the evil, G-d will not embarrass them in public, so long as they fix their wrongs. No one can escape G-d; it is a waste of time. Repent and obey the commandments.

Israel's greats, spiritual people and Rabbis, you must pray so that they don't give parts of the Holy Land to the Arabs, heaven forbid, so that they don't banish Jews like they did in Gush Katif. Continue to obey the commandments. This is the modern world. Whoever doesn't obey the commandments is in the primitive world and eventually has to face G-d and the law on earth.

Despite everything, we the Jews in Israel are protected by G-d. He protects our borders and Israel so that no damage is done. Still, Jews must watch over themselves. The month of Kislev is a month of miracles and wonders, a month of joy. G-d is giving us this month to be joyful with us. The Messiah is the way of G-d, G-d is doing everything His way - as He will do when He crowns the Messiah as King. Dear Jews, you must be patient to receive the gift; the day will come when the Messiah King is crowned, very soon, on the Holy Land.

Message from Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi, Shlita, Parashat Toldot, 27 Cheshvan 5776 (9/11/15)

בס"ד
King of Kings, G-d, Father of Mercy, Creator of the Universe, the trees, the animals, all of the seven billion people in the world, and the Jewish people of Israel whom He has chosen! The state of Israel is the source of blessing; the entire world lives off of it! You cannot block the source of blessing; because if it is blocked, the world will return to chaos and no one will be left in the world, which is alive thanks to Israel! Just like the sun gives life to the world, so does the state of Israel give life to the world, through the learning of Torah and prayer, through Jews who have told G-d "we will do and listen."

Whoever believes that there is salvation and the Messiah, will be blessed and will be in the first circle. Whoever doesn't believe will be blessed and G-d will have mercy on that person. The process now is that the old world is going to sleep forever and the new world is going to bloom into a world of honesty, truth, kindness and belief in G-d.

Chaos and Armageddon is overseas, not in Israel! Anyone who says that it is in Israel should not be believed, they are getting their information from the wrong place, from Satan.

The state of Israel is holy, pure and safe, the economy is good and there is a cloud of fire protecting the borders of Israel. We Jews will protect ourselves.

There are those that say that the rain two weeks ago was, heaven forbid, a natural disaster. There are no natural disasters in Israel and there never will be. The floods in the center and the electricity problems were problems with the municipalities and the electricity company, it is not from 
G-d. G-d does not do bad things to Israel, only people do bad things to themselves. If all of the municipalities cut the trees when and where they are supposed to, and fixed the water and sewage infrastructures, the water would go to the ocean and it wouldn't be a problem. Stop blaming G-d; G-d is good and does good; we are the wrong doers. G-d is protecting Israel, guarding and nurturing His Jewish children with love so that they believe in Him. His loyal servant, Messiah son of David, protects all of Israel and a wall of fire protects the borders of Israel, and you must watch over yourselves.

G-d is not interesting in peace with the Arabs. If He was, there would have been peace a long time ago. G-d knows that they cannot be trusted. It is all talk with the purpose of ruining Israel. Israel is a very small country in the world and they are not letting it live. They have countries that can house billions of Arabs. The three billion Arabs are treading water. There is no nation or country in the world that can harm the holy land and the Jews in Israel. Anyone who tries will be harmed by natural disasters, conflicts and complications, train and ship disasters. If the world knows that they were alive thanks to Israel and the Jews, they would have respected it ages ago. Soon they will know and everyone will respect Israel!

G-d is bringing the ten plagues of Egypt to the entire world and each is a hundred times worse. This is so that the Jews appreciate what G-d is doing, the miracles and wonders. G-d wants the Jews to be pure and holy and not to assimilate. All of the Jews living abroad must come urgently to Israel. Anti-Semitism is harsh and they will continue to harm the Jews living abroad. There will come a time when Jews say "we have sinned, who will save us?" Even the Jews living abroad with gentiles - come to Israel and convert them and their children. As soon as G-d crowns the Messiah king, this generation, soon, they will never be able to convert.

The state of Israel is different from all other countries and Judaism is different from all of the nations. G-d has chosen it and there is hatred and jealousy - Esav hated Yaakov and Yishmiel hated them both. Arab countries, it doesn't matter how much good is given to them, they will always want more, they will never be satisfied.

The IDF soldiers must be careful in their guarding shifts and on duty. Be 100% on duty and don't play with your phones or anything else. If you are vigilant on your watch and you fulfill your duties to the full extent, the armies of G-d will connect to you from the heavens and protect you. Beware of Arabs that dress like they are poor and unfortunate - they are dangerous and have knives. Respect, but be wary of everyone ten times over. They are brainwashed to kill and commit suicide. There are terrorists that harm and kill; they turn themselves in to the Palestinian police so that they are given a paycheck and money.

In Hebron there is increased activity because they have places to hide. There are mountains, rocks, and caves to hide in and they know the area well. You must be careful. They are as harsh as the rocks there. It is not enough to close their radio stations, they have their iPhones, WhatsApp, Facebook, and Emails. Just like in East Jerusalem, there are conspiracies in Hebron as well. They are organized and working quietly. They are snipers from the age of 16. The Shabak, Mossad, and IDF should look in Hebron for the place where they are trained with weapons; there is such a place.

In Gaza, Hamas continues to dig forty tunnels toward Israel. Be very careful and keep your eyes open so that they don't surprise settlements and IDF bases, heaven forbid, it will cause a lot of damage and shame to Israel.

Arabs with a blue ID have a lot of rights in Israel.

Hamas is busy with the tunnels.

ISIS is busy and celebrating in Sinai; they want to focus on Sinai.

Extreme Islamists and ISIS are making a mess for Sisi and soon everything will blow up.

Egypt is fighting against ISIS, the extreme Islamists and rioters. They should continue fighting and not give up. Sisi needs to watch over himself; there are very unclean people around him. He should continue to destroy their tunnels from Gaza to Sinai. Soon it will rain a lot in Gaza and the tunnels will be destroyed and delayed.

Jordan is waiting for a Palestinian country - they will not get it. They want to put four million refugees in the border with Israel.

Arduan, the "king" of Turkey, won the elections because anyone who goes against him, any competitor, is swallowed by the earth and disappears.

Turkey is filled with ISIS who are smothering the Turks every day.

Syria is being erased and will continue to be erased every day more and more.

Iraq is the same. They are killing each other, one eats the other. There is never going to be a solution.

Russia came to fight Syria to take out ISIS, because they don't want hundreds of thousands of ISIS members to come from Syria to Russia; that is the only reason. Russia is in good contact with Israel and they are updating Israel on every move. Despite that, you must keep your eyes open in the north so that infiltrators don't come through Israel's borders.

Nasrallah and Hezbollah can't do anything, they get "gifts" from Iran and, G-d be praised, IDF blows it up on the way. Nasrallah doesn't come out to the street because he is afraid of being killed.

G-d is creating a giant Babel Tower in all of the Arab countries and the world so that the people of Israel believe and say "who is like you L-rd?"

The United States will help Israel with ammunition and weapons, despite the big mistake they made with Iran. It is not too late to fix the mistake; they can always give it up. Iran is mocking the United States for being "modern" and "naïve;" it wants to control all of the Arab countries around it.

Iran is afraid of Israel, it knows that Israel can get anywhere in Iran. It is doing anything it can to harm Israel indirectly. G-d is putting fear of Israel in their minds.

Dear Jews, listen up: If Iran has even a thought to hurt Israel directly, the ground will open up and swallow the nuclear factories and a large part of Iran - they know this.

The economy in Israel, the rain, and prosperity are the best in the world; you only need the will to live. The state of Israel doesn't leave any Jew and helps even the minorities. Jewish Israelis must not leave Israel, they will come back to Israel with nothing and it will happen not long from now. Don't waste time on thoughts of leaving Israel, anti-Semitism will strike at the Jews in the world, it gets worse every day.

The government of Israel must stop playing games. If you harm one another in the media, your value will be diminished when you speak in the name of Israel; you will be disrespected and will have no value. You must be united. The state of Israel is developing every day; millions of Jews will come. Real estate, lots, stores, roads, factories, agriculture - it is all developing. The government of Israel must help the development of the people of Israel and not focus on fights between them and harming one another - you are being laughed at everywhere.

Every Jew that believes in redemption and the coming of the Messiah and obeys the commandments to the fullest, and tries as much as possible to make amends, will have be successful! All of the Jews are waiting for the moment when G-d crowns the Messiah King son of David with mercy! Because he is the solution to all of the Jews' and the world's problems!

Message from Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi, Shlita, Parashat Chayei Sarah, 19 Cheshvan 5776 (1/11/15)

בס"ד
G-d created the world, and all of this terrible confusion in the world today is the confusion that comes before a new world, a world without confusion, without complications, without murder, and without hatred. In order to build a new home, you must destroy the old one; you cannot build a new home on top of the old one, because there will always be cracks. There was once a world that was destroyed in the time of Noah, and G-d started a new world with Noah and his children, and the animals that were in the ark. Now, G-d is turning the world, with seven billion people, to a pure and holy world, not like it was with only Noah and his children.

The state of Israel - the Jews will rule the world and the world will bow before the state of Israel, the Holy Land. This sounds strange and impossible, but with G-d everything is possible, we simply do not have the capacity to understand Who G-d is. Because the world has become "modern", with smartphones, planes, and advanced technology, people have turned into so called gods, heaven forbid, know-it-alls, because the advanced technology has become their deity. It is like in the time of Abraham when their gods were idols. People are not smart or wise enough to understand that G-d is making a new order in the world. G-d is in pain; G-d has had it with the old world filled with greed, murder, thievery, crime, and bribery, a broken world.

There are Jews left in the world and in Israel that G-d has chosen, and they believe in G-d. Jews that live outside of Israel must sell their property and come to Israel to live in the Holy Land. G-d is separating them from the gentiles, and all of the Jews married to gentiles abroad, come with them to Israel and convert them. During the time of the crowning of the Messiah, it won't be possible to convert - it is a pity.

The people of Israel are also confused, G-d does not want two nations within Israel. G-d does not want any piece of land used to desecrate Him. All Jews must understand that the state of Israel does not interest the Palestinians and Hamas and anyone that works with them. They don't want peace; they want the Jews in Israel to be their slaves that is their plan. If they wanted peace, they would not fight; they would live in their own places with respect. The Jews have no other country; they have no place to go. The Palestinians, Hamas, and Jihad have many countries that are hundreds of times larger than Israel. Therefore, it is easy to see that they don't want peace; they want to destroy the state of Israel and to enslave the Jews. This will not happen, so peace with them will also not happen!

The government of Israel and the Jews must not fall for this trap. The Jews must not give up even one centimeter of the Holy Land; G-d does not want them to. They must go with the word of G-d. The government of Israel must not act based on the United States.

The United States is in talks with the Russians and the world on Israel's account, and it sounds like Israel is the world's victim, heaven forbid. The United States wants to create a Palestinian country to show the Arab countries that it is with them so that they support the US and not Russia. Israel is one country, and there are plenty of Arab countries, so the US wants a Palestinian country to have their support.

ISIS are making a mockery of the Arab world, they want to control and be on the map.

Egypt is doing everything to prevent a revolution. They must beware of ISIS and the extreme Islamists that want to turn it over. They are working around the clock to overturn Egypt.

Syria is completely gone, there is no point and it is impossible to reconstruct it. Every time an entity, state, or group of people comes and destroys Syria, they have no savior. It is like Korach when the ground opened up and swallowed them.

The state of Israel must be very careful not to let in refugees and infiltrators so that they don't become the majority and a danger to Israel, heaven forbid. Those who are in Tel Aviv must be evicted legally.

The IDF must be vigilant in the northern border.

Nasrallah and Hezbollah are going to "blow up." The IDF is doing great work in preventing ammunition from Iran to Hezbollah.

Iran is two-faced; they want to enjoy Russia and the United States. Deep down, they are deathly afraid of wars and want to be a powerful country.

In Turkey, elections or no, nothing will change. Anyone that goes against Arduan is killed.

Hamas in Gaza continue to work on the tunnels around the clock. The rain that was and will be will fill the tunnels with water, mud, and dirt. Gaza will drown in water and mud, because they plan for more tunnels towards Israel and are building them.

There is an ISIS conspiracy in East Jerusalem. ISIS representatives are teaching them how to stab. All of the parents with terrorists coming out of their homes need to wake up. They are returning the terrorists' bodies, so that they are not deterred. We should stop giving them the bodies.

The ISIS man who spoke is an Israeli Arab. There is an ISIS conspiracy in the north, south and in east Jerusalem.

Jordan is waiting quietly, hoping that there will be a Palestinian country, because the refugees are destroying Jordan.

G-d is protecting Israel; there is a protective cloud of fire. Still, Jews must watch over themselves.

Our government must not operate in the "you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours" method. G-d hates bribes and interests. All of the parliament members were chosen for the benefit of the people of Israel and they must be loyal to G-d and the state of Israel, do not make mistakes!

G-d does not like lust, bribery, cheating, thievery and interests; don't say "it will not happen to me." G-d does not differentiate between people; those who break the law will pay in kind. G-d is in pain for every single Jew.

Armageddon is overseas, chaos is overseas. What is happening in Israel, all of the problems we have now, we must pay attention to them, open our eyes and watch over ourselves. Just like in past Israeli wars, the Six-Day war, Yom Kippur war, Lebanon war, Protective Edge - this is like a war that will end. We experienced it before. There will not be a third or fourth intifada.

The economy in Israel is the best in the world and real estate will bloom endlessly in Israel.

Jews in Israel, left and right, must unite, this is not the time for games. Protests in Israel are completely forbidden; you must sit and talk with government officials. You won't achieve anything by force.

Rabbis and Torah greats of Israel, you must wake up and wake the people of Israel to repenting and obeying the commandments. Speak openly about redemption and the Messiah - there is no shame in that. Just like you mention the Messiah and redemption three times a day in your prayers and in the blessings after eating, that is how you should speak of it loudly and without shame! It is important to bring into the minds of the people of Israel that there is redemption and the Messiah and we must pray to G-d to crown him. No one of flesh and blood can crown him, only G-d!

The Messiah is operating in secret; some know him, others don't, and some are not sure. The most important thing is that he exists and is in Israel! He is working and soon G-d will crown him, because seven billion people in the world have lost their way, just like in the time of Noah, only worse. There won't be a nuclear bomb, that destroys the world, and there won't be a flood.

G-d has endless patience, and is working to expand the state of Israel, to bring the Jews. There is a Messiah in Israel and there is redemption process that started in the year 1948! The Messiah already started working a long time ago, and when G-d crowns him, he will work out in the open. He will destroy evil; he will speak and in a millisecond countries that have bothered Israel will disappear. After that, the world will fear the Messiah King and all will bow before the state of Israel and the Messiah out of fear. This is just the tip of the iceberg in understanding what the Messiah is!

The Future Looks Great

בס"ד
I have mentioned numerous times that prayer works – that Hashem gave us a system that measure for measure repays us for our deeds. Whatever we need, whatever we want is ours for the taking. All we need to do is trust Hashem completely and follow His instructions and we succeed. Listen to this beautiful example from the Torah as told by Harry Rothenberg from Partners in Torah:
video
When I tell you that this scary world need not be troublesome if you turn to and come closer to Hashem, the Torah couldn’t be more reinforcing of that idea. When Avraham had tests that no one on Earth could have passed at the time, it was the greatest lesson to us that nothing is impossible with Hashem. Avraham was given those tests because Hashem knew he would pass them. Hashem gave Avraham the gift of reaching an extremely high spiritual level that he will enjoy for eternity. Why? Because Avraham’s faith and trust in Hashem was as high as a human can possess.

We too totally can pass every test in life, Hashem guarantees it. The problem is: if we don’t know that we have the ability to pass, mostly because of not relying on Hashem for everything, we will falter. People who are depressed are people who think they are alone with no one to help. Do you know that Jews are not allowed to be depressed? If you turn to Hashem completely and live his Absolute Truth, you have found the antidote to depression and any other ailment that occurs in this world.

The most important point from this is that “the future looks tremendous” for those who live within Hashem’s system, the Absolute Truth, and use it to their greatest advantage. Think good thoughts, do good deeds and the return will be goodness beyond comprehension. This is especially true with how you treat others. Hashem sees every word you say and every deed you do. If your behavior is helping others, it is helping you. If you think you can be nasty to other people, don’t be surprised when Hashem returns the nastiness to you. It is all measure for measure (how many times I have said that).

All signs point to this crazy world getting crazier and more dangerous. I once say something written that talks about today being a day to beware (I saw this about twenty years ago in scriptures, and have not been able to find it). The only reason that I am telling you this is that everything said above about who will be tested, who will see nastiness, who will only see goodness, etc, is all dependent upon who is living the antidote. Yes, the future looks tremendous for those who want it so. Get to work. Be nice (that includes comments being sent to me – Hashem reads all the comment that I receive).
