I received two messages from someone who comes across as very good person asking a very legitimate question. I decided to not put his or her username to avoid any possibility of Lashon Harah. First the comments:

Yes, this is a very important message...but, seems quite humbling, to the Jewish people who do not have the money to fund their trip to Israel, pay for an expensive apartment, find a job for English speaking Americans, pay for food, clothing, etc? What do they do?
March 25, 2016 at 3:01 AMMy response:
What if we want to come to Israel, but do not have the money?
I have two answers for you that you won't care for, and another answer that you should like much more.
One, when the danger is so terrible, make a trip here on vacation, just to escape.
Two, I said this before, a while ago: if you don't have the money, it means you didn't turn to Hashem for help. This world of testing and allusion is not real. How well things go for you is strictly dependent upon how you, measure for measure, turn to Hashem. I have watched tens of thousands of people over a half century, and it has been totally consistent. Hashem has never, and I mean never, let down anyone who followed His ways. There is no such thing as: Hashem wanted to help someone, but couldn't. That is only in the mind of the skeptic.
Then there are those who give it lip service. “I did everything correctly, and it didn't happen for me.” Those people need the most Teshuvah. Instead of correcting their mistakes, they only think they did, or worse, pretend they did as if to trick Hashem into believing they did everything. They only deceive themselves.
I have received over ten thousand comments and Emails over the last four years on this blog. I am amazed at how many times my readers made statements about how lenient they can be on serving Hashem. They have a Rabbi who tells them it's OK not to be so strict; they found a charlatan on the web that gave them permission to do less, or worse, the wrong thing; they read a book about how much they don't have to do; this could be a long sentence so I will end it with, etc, etc, etc. Excuses are in no short supply.
I have had this comment about not being able to just drop everything and move to Israel many, many times. I have also mentioned how many decades the signs of danger have been prevalent. Thirteen years ago is when my family made Aliyah. We saw plenty happening then and realized it was time to come home. Any Jew paying attention to the evil world and the direction that it was going should have been concerned decades ago. If one studied scriptures, he or she would have seen the handwriting on the wall.” It was so obvious how bad it would get as we got closer to the Geula, and the many warnings about being in the safest place in the world for a Jew. That, we were told thousands of years ago.
I have also mentioned many times how history repeats itself. I grew up in a Jewish neighborhood in Philadelphia where many of my neighbors were Holocaust survivors. This was in the 1940’s right after they were liberated. They didn’t want to talk much, but yet they couldn’t keep it silent. I also lived in Germany for six years and spoke to many people, both Jews and non-Jews who lived through that dark time in history. One thing I learned was how the Jews of Germany in the 1930's thought that assimilation was the answer -- just blend into the goyishe population, after all they were our friends and neighbors, before they turned on us. And besides, how bad can it get? These people also had decades of horrors happening around them, and yet they never left. Good people who didn’t study Torah and who didn’t pay attention to all the messages that Hashem was sending. I am happy to report that there were 17 million Jews and non-Jews who saw what was happening in Europe and fled though Ellis Island at the beginning of the 20th century. Why then did so many Jews not heed the warning and get out? The same reason that so many Jews today never came to Israel over the past 20 years or so. How bad can it get? Hashem will protect us. Look how bad it is in Israel. Another long list of excuses, including: “It is not so bad here.” One caveat that I saw with Holocaust survivors was that they all turned to Hashem when things got so bad.
I have heard interviews on the web, and even heard from people that I have kept in contact with, who have said that the US now is much worse than Germany was in the 1930’s (this of course, includes the rest of the world outside of Israel). How can they say such a thing? The fact that we pay more attention to scriptures that are telling us so is one reason. But, how about the 800 FEMA camps that are already in operation, with millions of plastic coffins in storage. The concentration camps of Europe didn’t appear until the war started in 1939 with most of the death camps going into full operation with “the final solution” in 1941. If you thing hitler, yimach shemo, was an evil, diabolical tyrant, it is even worse what Gog Bush, Sr has in place with his cabal. They do plan to wipe out 93% of the world population to facilitate their New World Order. To make it worse, nobody fears this most evil of tyrants – he has is well hidden, his agenda and real personality. Even Obama, who works for Gog, is in the best position of power to carry out his evil plan, comes across as such a nice guy. hitler was barbaric and everyone knew it, out leaders today are worse, since they hide their evil ways.
A third answer that is a more pleasant thought. I know that what I have said so far is not pleasant and perhaps even very disturbing, but I wish to make some suggestions to avoid perpetuating the horrors of these days. There are so many Jews and even righteous non-Jews who pray to Hashem for complete protection from the coming devastation. But, how many are praying that Hashem should take them out of harm’s way by putting them in Israel. All Jews should be praying to still go to Israel before the end. All Jews should be doing Teshuvah about the mistakes they made by trusting the leaders and the evil governments instead of making every effort to leave. There is an old expression: “America, love it or leave it.” I left it and even let my passports run out to never go back again. Any relatives that want us to visit get the statement: “you come here instead.”
I am still curious whether miraculously all Jews and the lost tribes (all who are righteous non-Jews who are actually the lost tribes, and will be in Israel as well) will find themselves in Israel before the chaos grows to unbearable levels. Why? Because of the evaluation I did from Megillah 17b showing the sequence of events. The return of the people in exile happens before the devastation and the announcement of Moshiach. I am hopeful that Hashem is telling us in the Talmud, and other places, that His love and protection for all good people is a definite. We can never understand the hidden ways of Hashem, but we sure can benefit from those who follow His not-so-hidden ways.
I just want to make one statement to every one of my readers. If everything that I am saying about Nibiru, Geula, Moshiach, etc is totally wrong, but you react as Hashem has suggested, you will be much better off. If everything that I say is correct, you and your loved ones will be alive and experience much less suffering. Right or wrong, you win. It only requires you turning to Hashem and following His ways – a win-win situation. I mention this because I still continue to get Emails telling me that so-and-so thinks otherwise. It doesn’t make any difference. The time to do Teshuvah and bring yourself closer to Hashem is always today. It says in the Talmud that we should do Teshuvah the day before we die. How do we know when that will be? The point is: we don’t, so do it wholeheartedly as if tomorrow is the day. Good advice from Hashem.
Tomorrow, B”N, I have another helpful suggestion.
