Did G-d use Evolution in Creation?


בס"ד
A very interesting topic by Rabbi Ephraim Sprecher, Dean of Students, Diaspora Yeshiva:
It is important to understand that the Rabbi is not saying that the evolution of Darwin is valid. Hashem used an evolutionary process, but controlled every fine detail. The concept of evolution happening by accident and not by Hashem's control is ludicrous. Everything comes from Hashem even a step by step evolutionary process.

The concept of human-like creatures before the first human beings is well known. There were actually 974 generations of human-like creatures before Adam and Eve. All the findings of Paleontologists of human like creatures (Neanderthal, homo-erectus, homo-sapiens, Cro-Magnon, etc) is a very incomplete list since we know that it totals 974 different species. Why Hashem created all these prehistoric species before the first humans is a very complicated topic. But, since Adam to Moshe Rabbeinu is 26 generations, we see that the mention in Tenach about the Israelites being the thousandth generation, now becomes clear (Exodus 20:6 and Deuteronomy 7:9).

One additional clarification is the age of the universe. For more details, go to my post of 3 Apr 2012 entitled:

A War Over Our Spiritual Survival

בס"ד
Jerusalem, June 18, communication with Benjamin Golden, message no. 289

The following message from Ben Golden is greatly abridged. If I translated the entire message, it would be another week before I would post it. I have summarized many parts of the message as well as the questions and answers (many were left out that did not pertain to our discussion here).

Hello everyone, I just want to tell you that we're already at the end. Maybe it's all spinning around like it's okay, but it's not right. These are the last moments of the world which we have known since we were born until now, from the creation of the first man and his wife until this moment. This is the end. From now on, after Yom Kippur, It's starting to be something completely different. And it will not be easy; it will be very much scary, and very difficult.

The most important thing is not to leave Hashem, but to ask Him for anything. Every emotion, every thought must be with Him. This is what will save us, that we show Him that we trust Him for everything. Even though it seems that our world is falling, and maybe it seems to be 'falling on our heads,' Hashem forbid, it is important not to be afraid, He will save us. It is hard to do when you see all the world is falling apart.

Ben talks about both World War 1 and 2 that it was very frightening, including nuclear bombs for the first time in history; it was very scary.

But Ben also talks about the world as we know it, even with the many wars throughout history, but also with times that were considered good times of peace, of a very high economic situations, very good, times of prosperity. But the Satan always worked against humanity, always, from beginning to end, to put us in very difficult situations, attracting us to the most forbidden things. And now, there is nothing to be done, we've reached the point where it's going to be the end of the world as we know it.

Now everything is gone: all good is here, but all evil still remains. And, what we thought is good, we will see it more clearly; that not everything that we thought was really good, the evil will stands out. And there is great confusion. It has already started. Confusion is already unbearable.

Ben talks extensively about the secular people in Israel, how they want to do away with Judaism and make this a secular state. His point is that even that is just about over. In the near future only the true Jewish souls will remain. (Nothing more needs to be said about that).

More importantly Ben talks about how throughout the world there is such hatred of Jews. Hashem will make it even worse including all the scary problems with weather, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, etc. As we have heard many times it is all to scare the Jews and make them come home. Hashem wants all real Jews in Israel. Ben talks about how the evil ones are trying to destroy the world population, but Hashem is the only one who can do that to satisfy His will.

Once again, there is no mystery. Hashem will make the world the way He has planned from the time of creation. Hashem will raise the sea and pour it on the earth, and kill the majority of the world's population. Hashem will save His loved ones. He created the world, and only He can destroy the world. The souls of the real Jews will be purified. The souls will be cleaned and made beautiful again, and will not disappear. We will not die, we will just live. And we will reach the Temple, forever. If a Jew is not worthy, he may die as a Kiddush Hashem, but if so, Hashem will return him as a Kiddush Hashem once cleansed and purified.

There are many Questions and Answers that follow. There are questions about the Knesset, about the Reform, about the military, etc. All these will be gone soon enough that it is not necessary for our purpose to even discuss it. There is mention of the end of the monetary system, which will be worldwide. That system was very much part of the testing of this life in exile and will be eliminated with the worldwide redemption and the time of Moshiach. It is very clear in Jewish scriptures that the currency in the future will be righteousness. He or she who is righteous and completely with Hashem will lack nothing. That is really the way it is now, a time that we should be practicing the way Hashem wants us to be. Even now anyone who follows Hashem completely lacks nothing.

In the questioning it is mentioned that all countries will disappear, except for the Land of Israel. There will be water all over the earth. And then in the end, there will be the last war, the last one, which is the end battle of Gog and Magog. We will not have to fight against this; Hashem, with His Messiah from the seed of the house of David, King David, will fight against all the wicked, the Gentiles. And that would be the sweetest revenge. No fear! It may sound scary, but do not be afraid! We will be with Hashem, not to be afraid, not to be afraid, not to be afraid.

When I say 'do not be afraid,’ I mean it. We should be Strong. And the money will fall, fall hard. The money will fall! There will be no money. What will we do without money? What do we do without a grocery store? What will we do without a supermarket? Everyone will have some food in the house, some water in the house either a little or much more; Hashem will take care of us. Hashem will take care of us. Even if we don’t, we will not die. If we do not drink, we will not be thirsty. But the Holy One, blessed be He, will protect us.

The richest man, when he does not have that faith and confidence, even if he has a warehouse to sustain him for up to a year, it will not help. It will not help him if he does not have confidence in Hashem. And if he has full confidence in Hashem, yes, it will help him, but if not, then no. And a simple person who has no money, it will help him, will help him to have faith, for with Hashem, he will not be hungry or thirsty. At some point he will surely bring it, the well of Miriam, no one will be thirsty. Not to worry! Hashem proves to us day and night, day and night that He is with us.

And all those who are ill or are sick now, there will be a complete cure for all sicknesses. Your people Israel, who have already departed the Earth, or those who were, after all their suffering, they were brought to a high level. Be not sad for them, that they will return. They do not disappear. There is no death! There is no death for your people Israel. They just move from place to place. We become bodiless, but their spirit lives on. Those in heaven or those even In Hell, when they make the final correction, they will return happily to the world with a body. Do not worry, they are not without a body, do not worry, and with clothes, with Shabbat clothes. They will not come without clothes.

Q. Will there not be death?

A. There will be no death, but it is not now; now there is still death, we will not know. But again, as I said, even if a Jew has to go to the next world, he will return clean.

Q. North Korea and the United States, each week the threats become more acute and more dangerous.

A. It could result in a world war. The world is complacent. Everything shows. This whole thing with North Korea could be that the madman there, the president, is a little mentally ill and it directs him to this craziness.

Q. But with such a show it will end up in a world war.

A. True, but that's what they want, and that's what it will be. But first the war will be here, and that's what is most important to us and the hardest for us to understand. It would be very scary. There will be nuclear bombs, hydrogen bombs or whatever, but Hashem will protect us. But not so much, because even the wicked do not want to completely destroy the world and fill the entire atmosphere with radioactivity. It would be very unpleasant. But Hashem will destroy most of this world, but not by bombs, because it will give the 'credit' to human beings, and no one has the opportunity to do so. Hashem will do it, Hashem Himself by the star 'Nibiru' with all its planets; this is why Hashem sends it.

Q. And the star continues to approach.

A. Certainly. It is very close now.

Q. It's not that I'm afraid, but I expect to be awakened, to understand. Hashem talks to us and says: Wake up!

A. Of course, and now they've done another step, they've taken some guy who was a pilot there in North Korea (someone claimed to be a Jew, I do not know) And made it horrific because he took some pictures off the wall in a hotel. He was there a long time, they did not want to let him go, and in the end they released him, but he was no longer a human being. I do not want to go through everything they did to him, but they are sadistic in a way that goes beyond all limits. And when his parents met him when he arrived with the plane, he was lying down; he could not stand. He was not a human being. He screamed, screamed like an animal. He is there was a psychosis that could not be described. They described it, but I am sure that for many nights people will sleep with terrible dreams. Worse than what they did to those in camps in Germany, and with more cruelty. So what can I tell you? They do it to Americans who want war, and the American people want the war now. They do not know what this madman can do them; it’s bad. Maybe he'll blow up Guam, but what do they care about Guam, even though it's mostly populated with Americans, soldiers. It was found on some island in the Pacific Ocean. Hawaii is another thing since so many people vacation in Hawaii, which is also in the Pacific Ocean. But they are preparing the Americans to help them go to war against Korea North. And it will bring in the war both China and Russia, etc., etc. And there is a prophecy that we discussed from the Frankfurter Rav, the Admor of Karlin that Paris, New York, and London would disappear, and that was before they world knew about nuclear bombs!

Q. Will Hashem remove all the Jews from there?

A. Hashem will remove the Jews from America.

Q. I heard that one of the righteous said about the war of Gog and Magog that Hashem would catch the hair of Gog and Magog and push him into war ... And now we have finally, leaders with a forelock, both Trump and that madman from North Korea.

A. Two leaders with a proper haircut for Gog and Magog ... Baruch Hashem ... But the greatest real war - that is between the people of Israel and the so-called 'Israelites,' who are the great guarantor, Amalek. This is the Korean War now at this moment, here in Israel. It has to be here in Israel, not in any a place in the world, only here in Israel.

Q. In Mexico there were three very severe earthquakes. What is the message to the Jew? Mexico and for us?

A. Earthquakes, hurricanes, volcanoes, etc., etc., are all messages for us and the whole world: Your end is coming! And to the Jews: If you do not you want to have such a severe end, connect to Hashem, and come to Israel.

There are many more questions about what is happening in the world and what it means to us. All the questions and answers can be summed up with what I have presented for the past 66 months. This is the world of testing. We are each treated individually by Hashem measure for measure according to how much we come closer to Hashem and do His will or how much we think we can do it on our own. This is the end. As we read this past Shabbos in Koheles, Ecclesiastics, “there is nothing new under the sun.” There is no mystery to what is happening in the world and there is no mystery about what we must do as individuals to survive the chaos. We have been told for thousands of years how to come to the end successfully and go into the world of goodness and truth with total confidence. We need only to follow Hashem’s instructions. All the enemies that we want to discuss are meaningless. We are our own worst enemy. If we do the right thing, this upside-down fantasy world goes away and we could look forward to the real world of Hashem.

I finish with a few more questions of interest:

Q. Do we need time for all this?

A. We are in the time of the Messiah; all this will not take long.

Q. The righteous expressed very strong words about what should happen this year.

A. Certainly, it's right, feel that this is the year!

Q. Seventy years of the rule of the guarantor is a Rabbi in the country, as the Vilna Gaon says.

A. This is also relevant to what Hashem is telling us. (The time of 5708 to 5778 is the 70 years; it is time to end the State of Israel and begin the Land of Israel, Eretz Yisroel).

Message from Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi, shlita, For Sukkot, 11 Tishrei 5778, 1.10.17; Plus a New Post from Dani18

בס"ד
Our Father in Heaven, Father of Mercy, Honesty and Truth, His virtues are honesty, truth and mercy. When we will want to receive what He suggests and transmits to us daily, to correct our qualities, we will adhere to Him and live like kings.

The Holy One, blessed be He, desires to save you from the evil inclination, from sin, from malice and impurity. For this, the Holy One, Blessed be He, fights every day, moment by moment to purify the whole earth, to clean it of the waste, the lewdness, the filth, and all the abominations and desolation of the world.

The Holy One, Blessed is He, has brought into the world a wind with an extremely powerful angel for the wind; without an angel, it will not move. The wind that struck Mexico and the United States, this angel moved it. It will move from one country to another to purify the world, so that the Jews will understand that they must immigrate to the Land of Israel. The sea too - an angel moves it. The Land of Israel is protected and guarded, and there will be no problems with the elements or any problem from any country in the world. Because every country that intervenes will be struck by the ten plagues of Egypt, a hundred times. The suffering of the people of Israel is ending!

The Creator says that all of them, without exception, understand what He is explaining, alluding and telling us, through dreams, events or the activities of nature - everyone understands his hints and what he wants from them. And if we fulfill the will of the Creator, which is in our best interest, we shall be free with a good and long life forever.

We, the Jews are in a year of excitement and anticipation of the revelation of the Messiah in public! Everyone feels that Messiah must be revealed in public, whether in dreams, or from hints or from the activity of the elements of nature in the world. Everyone understands that something is happening in the world, that the Messiah must be reveled publicly and lead the world to peace, blessings and a long life forever.

All the difficult problems in the world are the work of the Creator to purify the world, and what is happening in the Land of Israel, the Creator of the world reduces and minimizes it by 99.9%. 99.9% of the Jewish casualties in the Land of Israel are due to mistakes and because they did not protect themselves. The IDF soldiers should keep the orders of the commanders and be vigilant all the time, do not believe anyone, no Arab goy, even if you see him every day.

The Holy One, Blessed be He, warns all the time: "And you shall be very careful and protect yourself." In everything a person does, he should make an effort - eat, sleep or travel, he should watch himself and should try not to rely on miracles. Every Jew will think twice when he's travelling, where he's going, what he's doing and what's going on around him, so he'll be safe and protected.

Yom Kippur was good and pleasant; it was good for all of the people of Israel. All the Jews felt that all were joining in one prayer to the Creator, and everyone waited for the Creator to caress them after the fast; then He caressed them after the fast!

The Holy One, blessed be He wants His children to observe the phrase, "We shall do and we will understand." As long as there is no temple, the dime is given to kollels and Torah scholars. As long as there is no temple, there are no sacrifices. When the Messiah will soon be revealed in public, the Third Temple will be built, and it will be good for all Jews and for the entire world.

To the Israeli government, there is nothing to fear, not to be afraid of UNESCO, the European Union or the United Nations, all of whom are non-Jews; gentiles decide in favor of the gentiles. When the Messiah will be reveled in public, very soon, in this generation, all the nations around Israel and all the Arabs inside Israel who are against Israel will flee from the Land of Israel, leave the Jews in peace and will not disturb the Jewish people anymore. Jews, it's in our generation and in this time!

East Jerusalem and the West Bank are planning very difficult and dangerous events, and the leaders are tempting them. There are many Arabs with blue identity cards who are the most dangerous.

The Palestinians and Hamas seem to be making peace between them; it is one big show.

ISIS mocks all the Arabs, kills them, pulverizes them, and makes life miserable for them, disturbing them in the Sinai Desert, Egypt, Turkey and all over the world.

Egypt, Sisi shuns everyone. Trying in every way to throw to us Hamas and the Palestinians, who will be under our control, thereby helping himself. He has complications in the Sinai desert and with its people.

Turkey, Erdogan is confusing the world, sometimes he is like this, and sometimes he is like that, ISIS controls him; the State of Israel does not need Turkey.

The United States is in terrible pain over the natural disasters they have been through. If Trump will not answer to Kim from North Korea, there will be peace.

Russia is not interested in anything; the main thing is to sell arms and ammunition.

Iran is afraid of the Holy One, blessed be He, who loves the Jews. They know that the Jews are the chosen people and yet wants to interfere with Israel in another way, until it receives its blow and will be like Syria.

Lebanon is playing games for Hezbollah to show that they are good friends, secretly they are Israeli friend.

Iraq as usual, is dismantled and will continue to fall apart.

Jordan is waiting for Trump, let him continue to wait. There is no peace with them and with the Palestinians.

The Holy One, blessed be He, informs all the nations of the world that he will not give in to any country or state that wants to disturb the Holy Land of Israel. The Holy One, blessed be He, warns you not to deal with the Land of Israel, with the Jews in the Land of Israel. Your time is running out.

The Holy One, blessed be He, wants the Jews to keep the Holy Covenant, to be saved from assimilation - so that you may be in the first circle of redemption in the near future.

Israel has the best economy in the world. The government does not know where the money came from, there is surplus money. Then we say to it: This is from the Holy One, blessed be He! Israel is the most organized in the world, the best and most compassionate, doing good to the entire world and the whole world lives thanks to the Land of Israel.

The elements will continue to strike, strong earthquakes, strong floods, strong winds, strong fires, the sea will continue to run wild, to sink and overflow! And yet the Creator promised there will not be a flood like it used to be.

All the thieves, the cheaters, the scammers, the ones taking or giving bribes will all be caught.

Sukkot is a good and happy holiday. We passed the High Holy Days, Selichot, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The Holy One, blessed be He, is happy with us in Sukkot, enveloping all His children with great love, we are happy with the Holy One, Blessed be He, and our Father in Heaven watches us so nothing will be missing to any Jew.

The Torah scrolls are also ready for Simchat Torah. The Torah scrolls in the synagogues in Israel and the Torah scrolls in the sky, which are attached to the Torah scrolls in the Land of Israel, are waiting for Simchat Torah. During Simchat Torah, the holy and kosher Torah scrolls in the Land of Israel connect to the Torah scrolls in the sky, with all the righteous.

The Messiah works and acts, protects and guards and everything that he decrees the Holy One, Blessed be He makes it happen!

The Holy One, Blessed is He, protects and directs the Messiah, gives him signs and other signs, in phases, so that people will not panic, and when the time comes, they will gladly accept him.

This year, 5778, all the Jews in the Land of Israel, are more than ever with great excitement and anticipation for the King Messiah!

FROM THE JOURNAL OF MEIR YISROEL

I can only tell you one thing. We are going into a deep tunnel which is going to seem never ending but in actual time it won’t be all that long. Fear is going to grip the world and there will be violence from every direction. The mini solar system known as Nibiru - Hashavit will also appear and change the world physically. The globes and maps that put every country in its place in our minds and in our understanding, will all be changed. Where once there was dry land will be covered with deep water and the seabed will become land without water, but Eretz Yisroel will stay the same and untouched by the violence around. Am Yisroel please come back to Hashem. Leave your beautiful homes in the western world and come back to where you belong, in Eretz Yisroel where, may be, the life is a little bit difficult in Gashmius but you will be very rich in Ruchnius. If and when you decide to put your ego aside and accept totally, in the greatest humility, that Hakadosh Boruch Hu is the Hakol Yachol and say with all you heart “Ain Od Milvado”. This Rosh Hashanah will be a time officially and unofficially to realize what we are supposed to be. A time for choosing which side we want to be on, the side of evil or the side of good. Two thirds of the world will be destroyed. One third will be completely destroyed. One third will be very badly hurt and one third will be untouched for the most part. That will be the area where Eretz Yisroel is. In the future Eretz Yisroel won’t have the frontiers that it has now. The borders will be like in the times of Shlomo Hamelech. I beg you Am Yisroel, time is running out and before you know it Gog Umagog will be upon us.

ALSO:
http://www.dani18.com/uploads/MEIR_Y_5778_02.pdf

Its Erev Yom Kippur. We are all running around buying/cooking the last bits of food or the last things we need for Yom Kippur. Hustling and bustling around to meet the time limit when we have to change our shoes and light candles for Shabbos/Yom Kippur and start our fast and Tefillos begging Hashem to forgive us for all our Aveiros. But this Yom Kippur is very different than all the rest of the Yom Kippurs because even though we don’t really know the exact date of the Geula Sheleimah still those true Jews, with Jewish Neshomas, have started to long to greet Moshiach in a very intense and mind-boggling way. The yearning to end this long and most difficult Golus is becoming impossible to bear for all those true Jewish Neshomas. It’s as if we live only for that. Everything in our minds and hearts, in our plans for the future are centered around these few words which are, “if the world is still normal” or” if Moshiach, Chas Vesholom, hasn’t revealed himself by then.” We can make plans for the future knowing always that the wars and disasters told in the prophecies might destroy all of our future plans. The longing to end the Golus by so many people, of so many Jewish Neshomas is probably the greatest sign that we are a breath away from greeting Moshiach.

Please Am Yisroel, Daven hard in the next weeks from now until after Simchas Torah and beyond that. Beg Hashem to finally put an end to this horrific exile and bring us once more to His Bais Hamikdosh where we will again be Makriv Korbonos, bring sacrifices and feel intensely without a Mechitzah - Hakadosh Boruch Hu in His full glory.

I Bentch all Am Yisroel, every single person child and adult and even the unborn, that we will soon, very soon, greet Moshiach Tzidkainu Bimhaira Beyamainu! Gut Shabbos, Gut Yom Tov, a good year, and Gemar Chasima Tova. We should all be written in the Book of Life.
