Sometimes a child's insight is better...

When you read this, you will never think of thunderstorms the same way again.

A Child's View of Thunderstorms

A little girl walked to and from school daily. Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, she made her daily trek to school.  As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with lightning.

The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school.  She also feared the electrical storm might harm her child.

Full of concern, the mother got into her car and quickly drove along the route to her child's school. As she did, she saw her little girl walking along.
At each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up, and smile.  More lightning followed quickly and with each, the little girl would look at the streak of light and smile.

When the mother drove up beside the child, she lowered the window and called, "What are you doing?"
The child answered, "I am trying to look pretty because G-d keeps taking my picture."

I thought this was so cute; but then realized, wouldn't life be much simpler and less stressful if we could view it as a child?  Instead of being uptight about everything, just have complete faith that Hashem is there, loves us and wants to help us through every situation.

When you have Hashem in your life, you feel His protection and do not fear the world.  Scriptures tells us not to put ourselves in danger -- it is like you are testing Hashem and you will fail.  But, if you find yourself in a dangerous situation, and turn to Hashem for help, you will not come to harm.

I have a friend who accidentally strayed into an Arab village.  The locals sat him down and put a gun to his head.  My friend started to recite Psalms, completely putting his fate in the hands of Hashem.  All of a sudden, there was an incident that occurred nearby which distracted his tormentors.  They ran towards the new incident, leaving my friend alone allowing him to leave quietly and safely.

There are so many stories like this including miraculous stories about 911 where people turned to Hashem and survived.  I know several people who experienced such miracles.

There is one last word about putting oneself in danger that is a little more subtle.  We were put on this physical world to serve Hashem by doing the mitzvot and perfecting ourselves.  Hashem gave us a body to accomplish these physical tasks and told us to take care of this body.  That means that we are obligated by Torah to eat properly, exercise, get proper sleep, etc.  In other words, if we violate our own physical needs, we put ourselves in danger.  The level of obesity in the US of A, as an example, is a great Torah violation.  The overall life expectancy of Americans is down.  It is 79 years of age and ranks 33 in the world.  Israel, where the average Israeli is thin, eats better and more physically active, is ranked number 4 with an average age of 82.  Number 1, 2 and 3 are age 83.  I know it is due mostly to the fast food establishments that are much more interested in profits for their stockholders than the welfare of their customers.  Laziness is also involved.  If you want something at a store one block away, why are you driving there?  Couch potato is a very prevalent way of life.

Hashem watches everything we do.  The protection that He gives us is measure for measure what we deserve.  Subtle or not -- danger is danger, and Hashem notes it all and rewards or punishes it all.  Part of doing Teshuvah is evaluating every aspect of your life, even the subtle events.

Daf Yomi

One of my daily programs in studying Torah is called Daf Yomi.   Daf Yomi (Hebrew: דף היומי‎, Daf HaYomi, "page of the day" or "daily folio") is a daily regimen of learning the Oral Torah and its commentaries (also known as the Gemara), in which each of the 2,711 pages (that is a two sided page or 5,422 sides) of the Babylonian Talmud are covered in sequence.  Under this regimen, the entire Talmud is completed, one day at a time, in a cycle of seven and a half years.  This program which was started by a Rabbi Meir Shapiro in 1923 is done worldwide.  The end of the cycle culminates in a worldwide celebration called Siyum HaShas (completion of the 6 orders of the Talmud).  In the last Siyum HaShas, 2 August 2012, an estimated 300,000 participants around the world celebrated.  It has come a long way since 1923.  It is interesting to know that so many worldwide are studying everyday and are all on the same exact page of the Talmud.  Wikipedia has a very good write-up on the Daf Yomi to learn more.

Why do I bring this up at this time?  Good question.  The Talmud, like all of Jewish scriptures is replete with prophecy.  More so than the Bible, the prophecy is told outright and is more easily discernible.  The coolest thing about doing Daf Yomi that I have noticed over the years is messages from Hashem.  How so?  Very often the prophecy is being fulfilled on the day that we are studying it.  In other words, there are events happening in the world that day that allude to the topic of that day’s daf (page).  I am always fascinated to find how Hashem talks to us in the most miraculous way.

That still doesn't explain why I bring it up at this time.  I know, be patient, I’m getting there.  On Shabbos, we started a new tractate – Pesachim.  This tractate tells all about the festival of Pesach (Passover).  Does that seem a little out of place since we celebrated Pesach three months ago?  I asked that question myself before doing the first Daf of the new tractate.  Then I read the introductory commentary from the Artscroll Schottenstein Edition of the Talmud and came across a very interesting possibility.  Here is the paragraph that sparked my interest:

The festival of Pesach (Passover) celebrates the central event of Jewish history: the redemption of the Jewish people from Egypt. The significance of the redemption is best evidenced by the fact that the Ten Commandments begin with the declaration: I am Hashem, your G-d, Who delivered you from the land of Egypt (Exodus 20:2). The very fact that G-d introduces Himself as the Redeemer rather than the Creator serves to emphasize his role as the Mover of history, not solely as its Initiator.

Does this hint to the fulfilment of the coming of the redemption – the Geula?  Is this telling us that all the Jews and the lost tribes will leave their present dwelling places to return home soon?  Being the eternal optimist, it sounds good to me.  I am not a prophet and therefore can only see the prophecy fulfilled after the fact.  But, it sure is exiting to speculate since the Daf Yomi has produced some very spooky results in the past.  Tractate Pesachim is 121 dafim (pages) long so perhaps we are talking about all being accomplished in the next 4 months (or sooner).

I do, however, encourage you to consider doing Daf Yomi.  The Talmud is such a good compendium of details on the Torah and the rest of Jewish scriptures.  To go through it one page a day with all the commentaries included, one can get the best overview of everything the world has to offer.  For me to tell you exciting prophecies that I find is interesting.  For you to discover it yourself is far superior and much more meaningful.  Since the goal here is to come closer to Hashem and learn His ways, Daf Yomi is an excellent way to get a general overview of it all.  You will not be a Torah scholar going through Daf Yomi, but it is a start to achieving the happiness and success in life that Torah study brings.  I have said that “Hashem does not judge us by what we know, He judges us by how we grow.”  Daf Yomi is an excellent way to grow and does not take very long (an hour a day is usually more than enough).  The most important thought is that Daf Yomi is very enjoyable and a very productive way to do something great for yourself and family.  It is a win-win situation.  See you at the next Siyum HaShas.

Let’s Make a Deal

The following article is from

Monty Hall’s best deal changed his life.

For over 30 years, starting in the early 1960s, Monty Hall hosted Let’s Make a Deal, one of the most popular game shows in television history. He was not only the show’s impresario, he created and produced it, and today, at 91, he is still involved with its creative evolution.

But while Hall has fond memories of the thousands of “deals” he made on his show, when I met him for lunch the other day at the Hillcrest Country Club, he had other deals in mind.

In particular, he told me about a deal he made more than 75 years ago with a Jewish man named Max Freed.

Hall had dropped out of college after his first year because he couldn't afford to continue. He was living with his family in Winnipeg, a city of long winters in western Canada that attracted many Jews from Ukraine. The Hall clan spent many years struggling financially and living in close quarters.

Max Freed, on the other hand, was anything but struggling. He was a 29-year-old playboy with a thriving clothing company who wore fancy suits and had a reputation around town for living the good life.

One fateful day, Freed bumped into Hall’s father, a kosher butcher, and asked him: “Was that your boy I saw yesterday washing the floors of a warehouse?” The father responded that yes, that was his son.

“Well,” Freed said, “tell him to come by my office tomorrow.”

When Hall showed up the next day, Freed made him an offer. If Hall returned to college, Freed would pay for all his schooling expenses, but with three conditions.

One, Hall’s grades had to be B-plus or higher. Two, Freed wanted a monthly report on his progress. And three, Hall had to promise that one day he’d do the same for another kid. (Freed also asked him to keep the deal confidential, a request Hall gladly ignored nearly 75 years later at our lunch.)

Hall, with the support of his family, jumped at the deal, so Freed asked him to get back to him with a budget.
As Freed reviewed the budget, which included tuition and living expenses, he noticed that Hall had put in only 25 cents for lunch. “Don’t you want a drink with your lunch?” he asked. “Go ahead and add 5 cents for a Coke, and throw in something for haircuts, too.”

Once they agreed on the budget, Hall promptly resumed his studies at the University of Manitoba.
For the next three years, Hall thrived. He was the first Jewish student to become president of the student body, a prestigious position. He had excellent grades and reported regularly to Freed, who kept a close eye on his progress.

Hall’s accomplishments, however, were not enough to get him into medical school, so after graduation he moved to Toronto and began a career in radio broadcasting.

Hall had a restless personality and was always on the lookout for new opportunities. He moved to the United States and began working in television, creating and producing shows. His big break came when he sold Let’s Make a Deal to a major network.

Hall went way beyond his promise to help another kid get an education. He helped charities raise more than $1 billion.

As Hall became one of the best-known names in television, Max Freed was becoming very proud of his “investment.” The two always kept in touch, becoming so close that Freed’s son once said to Hall: “I think he loves you more than he loves me!”

But it wasn't just Hall’s fame and success that made Freed proud — it was also his charitable work. Hall went way beyond his original promise to help another kid get an education. In fact, he became one of America’s most celebrated fundraisers, helping charities of all stripes raise more than $1 billion.

In the charity world today, Hall is known as the man who doesn’t say no.

A few years ago, Hall heard from a doctor that Freed, by then 99, was nearing the end. He took the first flight to Winnipeg to be near him.

When Hall got to his bedside, he moved his face “nose to nose” with Freed, who was now “mostly blind and mostly deaf.” They talked and reminisced for about 20 minutes.

Finally, putting his mouth close to his friend’s ear, Hall said to the man who had picked him up 75 years earlier while he was washing floors in Winnipeg: “Max, you gave me a life.”

Max Freed, the former playboy who invested in that little Jewish boy he hardly knew, replied, in a barely audible voice: “No, Monty, you gave me a life.”

This article originally appeared in The Jewish Journal.

Additional note:
I enjoyed this article and wanted to bring it to you since I have been saying how important it is to help others.  It is one of the most important messages from the Torah that helping others is a good way to help yourself.  We are on this Earth to perfect ourselves and reach Tikun -- this article is an example of one of the easiest methods to do so.

Another Profound Message from Hashem

There is such a devastating episode going on in the US with the National Security Agency (NSA) spying on the citizens of the US.  The whistleblower who disclosed this information is in hiding and fearful of his life.  The extent of the surveillance and secret gathering on the part of the US Government makes the idea of 1984 look like a picnic.  The biggest question in the minds of Americans is what this Orwellian fiasco is doing to the very fabric of the US.  It is definitely unconstitutional and even very dangerous to those who are suspected of covert activity to the US.  The government doesn't seem to care about its citizens since this is leading up to the very dangerous New World Order that has been planned by the elite for over a century (probably close to two centuries).  The debate about what is going on is not my concern here.  It is the attitude, even the fear of Americans, since this is culminating in a system of no “liberty and justice for all.”  People of the US of A have great trepidations about their future and the future of their loved ones.

How can I tie this to a message from Hashem?  Since everything is from Hashem, let’s figure out the message.  The system of this world is that Hashem gave us a Handbook (the Torah) to guide us completely through life and beyond; He gave us a free-will to take advantage of the instructions or to go in our own wayward direction; and, here’s the kicker, He set up a surveillance network to monitor every word and action we do – every free-will decision we make.  Hashem has in His infinite database the thoughts, words and actions of every person that every lived (His database makes the NSA information look like a Non-Sufficient Accumulation – maybe that really is what NSA stands for).  What is the gigantic difference between the government collection of information and Hashem’s infinite database?  The government is doing everything with evil intent and Hashem only has love and mercy as His purpose.  Hashem wants us to do the right thing and to discover what true happiness and success is for this life and forever.

The big question that comes from this all is why are we so afraid of what the government is doing to hurt us, but so nonchalant to the real system from Hashem?  Although Hashem’s system is there to help us and provide us with everything, it is also a fair system, measure for measure, including punishment for violators.  The biggest difference is that the government is not a fair system and could result in unfair punishment; where Hashem’s system is always fair.  It is such a shame that we have available to us a way to achieve total happiness for us and our loved ones and we give it very little heed.  I'm curious, if the government started monitoring who keeps Kosher and who observes the Sabbath, whether more Jews would start to do the right thing – especially if we knew that mitzvah violators could wind up in a FEMA camp and never be heard from again.

I’m going to tell you a big secret (as I have always said this is Secret so make sure you tell everyone), whomever gets monitored and receives trepidations or even punishment from the government is receiving it from Hashem.  Everything is from Hashem.  If you are following the ways of Hashem (Yaakov studying Torah), the government will not bother you (Esav having his way).  Hashem works in mysterious ways and uses everything of this world to do His Will.  There is nothing random in this world – no coincidence, no accident, nothing by chance, nothing by luck.  If you don't believe this, you will suffer by its consequences.  In other words, things will happen in your life that will seem like coincidence, accident, chance, luck, random occurrences, etc and you will start playing with the Ouija board, reading the daily horoscope and all kinds of other crazy fortune telling nonsense.  Until you turn to the real system, as Hashem has given us, and not paying attention to the falseness of the world, you will be living in the upside-down fantasy world instead of taking advantage of the real kindness and love that is available.

Well, I guess this makes me a whistleblower for Hashem’s monitoring system (I consider myself more of a Shofar blower than a whistleblower).  The good news is I don't have to go into hiding, but instead, I can be totally happy about my whistling.  All I ask is: come whistle with me; you will be happy you did.

Everything is in the Torah

I received this comment from Moriah that is, once again, a fascinating find:

I think it's very interesting and telling, the last Torah Code posted by Rabbi Glazerson regarding the new Iranian President Rohani - especially the verse it appears in the Torah.

I repeat, everything is in the Torah.
Thank you Moriah and thank you Rabbi Glazerson.

Sources of Absolute Truth (continued)

Before I can really get into the meat of the topic and the purpose of this blog (what all this truth means and how we need to react and prepare), I need to wow you with the fact that Hashem has given us information about everything in this world that has happened, is happening and will happen.  The biggest problem that I have is that it is an overwhelming amount of information that is known.  My dilemma: how do I very concisely write it on a blog.  I personally have about 600 books (in English, not including the Hebrew books) that are mostly concerned with this topic.  There is an organization that sells a hard drive compendium of Hebrew books that have been written over thousands of years.  They cover scriptures and all the commentaries written in support of what is known, or more appropriately put, what Hashem wants to tell us about everything.  That hard drive is now at 60,122 Judaic books of information (last year when I wrote about this it was at 53,367 books).  Hopefully, you see my problem.

Enough excuses.  The next source to be disclosed is the remainder of Jewish scriptures.  This includes, but is not limited to, the remainder of the Bible, the Oral Torah (commonly called the Talmud), the Zohar and others.  Scriptures are replete with prophecy.  In the Torah, for instance, every word, every letter, every combination of letters (thousands of ways to combine and read the letters), even the numerical value of each letter (another subject to be discussed) has profound prophetic significance.  We have a long list of prophecies that we are told will happen in the time preceding the end (meaning the redemption, Messiah, 3rd Temple, etc).  I have been actively involved for about twenty-one years in comparing what is happening in the world to what will happen just before this time of redemption according to scriptures.  With great excitement I can report to you that all the events have already happened over thousands of year or are happening now, with completion being imminent, and all has come true as written.  The most important concept to take from this is that all of history is in scriptures and most of history is completed with total accuracy according to the prophecy.  My confidence level, that what has been given us in scriptures is the absolute truth (I love those words), is unshakable.  I will only give you a few of my favorite examples since I could write volumes on the subject.  One thing that I have found to be true is that my telling you of exciting items that I have experienced, especially miracles (which I could talk about for hours), is meaningless.  You digging and experiencing your own discoveries is what does it for you.  I hope to direct you in several posts in the near future to sources, books, videos, etc that will teach you what it’s all about, B"N (bli neder means without taking a vow -- it is considered very serious in the eyes of Hashem to promise something and not deliver.  I do not wish to be in violation and will add B"N to such statements).

For now, let me tell you some prophecies that demonstrate how Hashem talks to us and guides us.  What makes these examples chilling is the detail, not generalities.  One example can be found in Isaiah 21 which talks of the prophecy of the downfall of Babylonia.  Babylonia is modern day Iraq.  This particular prophecy sounds allot like the 1991 Gulf War.  How so?  Isaiah begins by saying that it will be like “Desert Storms.”  Either Isaiah called the Pentagon 2700 years ago to ask them “what are you going to call this war?” or we have a very chilling prophecy.  Many more details can be seen in Isaiah and Jeremiah.  This was very nicely written up in a commentary from Professor Paul Eidelberg of Bar-Ilan University:

We get miraculous prophecies even from Rabbis down through the ages.  Rabbi Shlomo Yitzhaki, who lived in the years 1040 to 1105, is known to us as Rashi (all the great sages throughout history are referred to by abbreviated names -- either an acronym or by a book that the Rabbi wrote).  Rashi wrote miraculous commentary on the entire Bible and the Oral Torah.  In Ezekiel 47 we get a prophecy of waters flowing from the Temple Mount and going all the way to "Galila."  The waters represent the study of Torah which will come out of Israel and spread throughout the world (the prophecy has been fulfilled).  But what is Galila?  Rashi explains “to America.”  What?  A Rabbi who lived about 400 years before Amerigo Vespucci (March 9, 1454 – February 22, 1512), whom America was named after, knew about America?  No way.  Oh contrar -- yes way.  But, since Hashem put the commentary into the mind of this great Rabbi, he was able to tell us the name of a place centuries before there was such a place.

Another miraculous bit of information.  In the Torah Hashem tells Moses that the redemption will not happen until the two giants, Sichon and Og, are destroyed.  Sichon and Og were two kings who were a hindrance to the Israelites entering the land of Canaan.  The statement is, as mentioned above, a prophecy that will take place in the future before we have the final redemption -- that the two giants will be destroyed.  A Rabbi Yehudah Aryeh Leib Alter (1847–1905), also known by the title of his main work, the Sfas Emes called the two giants “towers.”  The Talmud (Tractate Berochos) tells us that Moses who was ten cubits tall, had a sword that was ten cubits long and that Moses could jump up ten cubits.  He was able to reach the ankle of Og by reaching 30 cubits.  If you multiply 30X24 (the ankle is proportioned at 1/24 the height of the body) and using the length of just under 22 inches for the length of a cubit (according to several distinguished Rabbis of modern time), we come to approximately 1350 feet.   What a coincidence that that just happened to be the height of the World Trade Buildings 1 and 2.  Sichon and Og represented materialism which Moses has to destroy for the Israelites to enter in a higher spiritual level.  The World Trade Towers were the epitome of materialism in modern times.  Hashem didn't make the towers fall, but was aware of the event when He gave us the Torah and gave us the prophesy through Sichon and Og.  One additional note was that Sichon was slightly taller than Og and one of the towers was with an antenna that put its overall height slightly above the other.  A tremendous amount of information is found in the Bible, encoded in the Torah and described in the Zohar about 911 (Zohar parshas Balak talks about 3 walls falling, since building 7 also fell that day, the sun being blotted out by smoke and dust clouds, a palace like structure being attacked, referring to the Pentagon, etc).  I actually have a book, 264 pages long, that gives extensive detail.

Enough for today.  This subject can go on for thousands of pages but, once again, it would have more of an impact if you discovered the information yourself.  I will, however, be bringing up more exciting and mysterious findings as I go along.  Many subjects to talk about, not enough time to do it.  The most important concept to observe is that these are not generalities open for interpretation, but are replete with very specific details including dates, places and names, either read outright or encoded -- but irrefutable.

Sources of Absolute Truth

I recommend that you read yesterday's post before this one (if you haven't done so) -- it will make more sense.

Very simply, the source that I use is the word of G-d.  What?  Before I lose you, let me give you details that will astound you and give you complete confidence in what I am saying.  

Note: from here on I would like to not take the name of our Creator in vain (one of the commandments) but to refer to Him as Hashem which is Hebrew for “the name.”  It is the way observant Jews refer to Him.

Let us start with the most miraculous text in the world – the five books of Moses, the Torah.  It says in the book of Exodus that Hashem dictated the Torah to Moses on Mount Sinai one letter at a time.  Hashem actually showed Moses the letters in a fiery display.  What we have is 304,805 letters (not one more or less – I hope to post proof of that in the near future) that was handed down 3325 years ago.  The Torah is our handbook of life as well as the blueprint of creation.  We have verified over the past 30 years what has been known for thousands of years that everything is in the Torah -- I mean everything.  By putting the Torah into the computer, we have been able to analysis that the Torah contains hidden codes and messages.  We are amazed at the fact that everything that happens in the world can be found in the Torah with astounding detail.  By reading every second letter, third letter, etc or going up in the alphabet or down in the alphabet, through letter substitution (folding the alphabet different ways), new spaces between the string of letters, etc, etc, etc we see a new body of text with all new information.

Two questions beg asking:  how many coded messages are there and how many methods of coding exist.  The coded information includes every detail about every person that has ever lived, every animal, plant, tree, blade of grass, rock, insect, every star, galaxy, planet in the universe, etc, etc, etc.  In other words, if something exists, it is in the Torah.  What you are wearing today, what you had for breakfast, every word that you said today is in there.  All of science (the correct answers and even all the incorrect answers that scientists are still working on), mathematics, medical knowledge, law, trivia, etc, etc, etc it in the Torah.  What are you thinking?  “That is impossible!!!!”  Now you are catching on.  The different ways that information is encoded in the Torah numbers 600,000.  This only could have come from a Source of Infinite Intelligence Who sees all time (all eternity) and knew in advance every thought, word and action that we will have in our lives.  This makes the total number of hidden and not so hidden messages, that no human being could have known, an infinite amount.  Anyone who believes that the Torah was written by a bunch of old men has not studied the Torah.  Atheists, as an example, don’t have a clue of what reality is in this universe.

Next question:  What is the purpose of the Torah and why does it include everything.
As mentioned above, Hashem gave us the Torah as a handbook of life.  It is all the instructions we need on how to survive and thrive for eternity.  For a Jew there are 613 commandments that guide our every action in life.  When followed properly, we achieve total success and happiness in this world and beyond (more detail of this is forthcoming in future posts).  Non-Jews have a total of 7 commandments to adhere to.  Why the big difference between Jew and non-Jew is a subject for future posting.

But, on a much deeper level, the Torah serves a very fascinating purpose.  Hashem is consistent.  We see, as an example that in every cell in any living organism there is a computerized DNA code.  If I said that the body is described in every cell in the organism, it would be an accurate statement.  But, a more accurate statement is that the body actually grows in accordance with the blueprint that is the genetic code.  If I make the statement that everything in the universe is found with complete detail in the Torah it is an accurate statement.  But, a more accurate and completely correct statement is that the 304,805 letters of the Torah is the genetic code of the universe and everything that is in it.  In other words, we are living out the script that is Torah.  If it isn't in the Torah, it doesn't exist!

You may ask:  Doesn't that eliminate free will?  Not at all.  Hashem, who is not in this allusion of time that He provided for us (I hope to expound on that statement in a future post), saw in advance every thought that we would have, every word that we would say and every free will decision that we would make.  Including everything that we do, Hashem scripted the genetic pattern of our existence.  It is like describing in great detail to someone everything that will happen in a video that you have already seen.  It doesn’t mean that you have decided what the individuals in the video will say; you had a copy and were able to give a complete description to someone else before they saw the event.

Obviously, everything that has happened, is happening and will happen in the world has been told to us.  In the coming days I hope to cover the other areas of messages from Hashem such as the rest of the Bible, the Oral Torah, the Zohar (which is the mystical information that Hashem has given us) and other sources.

Enough to think about for today.

Introduction to the Absolute Truth

The world of today is a world of lies and fantasy.  Very little that you see in the news is true – after all the media is for making money and not worried about informing you.  Sensationalism sells, not the absolute truth.  The world is so upside-down that most people of the earth are on a path to disaster.  We are not only in the end of days (I will explain what that entails) but we are in the end of the end of days.  It is vital to each individual on earth to know what the truth is -- what the system is on this earth to survive and thrive.  We must become proactive to save ourselves as individuals and our loved ones.  Relying on the inept leaders of today is foolhardy and dangerous.

We live under a system of measure-for-measure meaning that you can't blend into the crowd, but are treated as an individual.  For every act that you do that is positive and good, you receive reward; and, for every wrong act or even evil act, you receive correction (or punishment).  By learning the truth we will see how accurate these statements are and how each of us is affected.  The most important thing to know is we are just about out of time and what you do immediately will determine the quality of the rest of your life and your eternity, forever and ever and ever and ever, etc, etc, etc.

The purpose of this blog is to convince you of the above with unshakable evidence of the truth.  The sources of information that I will be using are absolute and so accurate that it will not take long for me to convince you.  The more important thing is for you to catch on quickly to the obligations you have and what it means to you and your loved ones.  Then you must learn what is imperative to fulfill those obligations.  Once again, there is not much time.

The symbol that I use for this blog showing the two fingers together has the following meaning:
The space between my fingers is how long life is on earth. 
The space outside of my fingers is eternity and represents our eternal life.
We work so hard to make life on earth as pleasurable and successful as can be; and, we ignore the real life which goes on after we change addresses.  Yes, we do live forever and I will present evidence to that statement that would stand up in court.  Be as skeptical as you want about the truth that I will be covering, but be aware that a day is coming soon that you will know without a doubt what the truth is.  The problem is that day will be called “too late.”  Your opportunity to survive and thrive is now, and will be finished in the not too distant future.  I am no relation to Elvis Presley, but what he said is the absolute truth – “it’s now or never.”

Before I get into the meat of the subject, you should know that I have worked diligently for a long time to find the truth and eliminate my personal opinion.  All that I will cover is well documented and not my gut feeling about things.

Tomorrow, I hope to begin with telling you my sources of information and convince you that these sources are the only way to know the truth.  I have included a comment section; but, I am not interested in your rebuttal unless you have very unshakable evidence.  Even though I like to consider myself as an extremely open minded person, with approximate 65 years of studying scriptures, 16 years of college and about 56 years of studying science, psychology, sociology, etc, etc, I probably have seen your sources and have validated or refuted them.  However, I am human so I can make mistakes.  I am open to hearing anything that you wish to throw at me.  Mostly, I will use the comment section for questions that will prompt further blog postings and discussion.  If you have a personal issue that you do not wish to have posted in the comment section, Email me at  This blog is to help you!!!!!  I will disclose timeframes that we have to accomplish our mission but will not give the exact dates that I believe.  For one thing, it would be my opinion which I am not interested in discussing, even though the opinion is based on scholarship and not gut feeling.  The other problem is if I give one bit of information that turns out to be incorrect, there goes my credibility.  I am here to help you, not discourage you.

Let’s Begin Again

I recently made mention that I have covered the subjects that I had intended to cover; and, I am therefore not posting as much.  I have many, many more subjects that I can talk about; but, since my basic objective always has been to speed up the coming of Moshiach and the Geula and preparing my readers to get the most of that coming, I basically have completed my task.  As I have said all along I am doing what I can to save the world – I am not here to entertain my readers with sensationalism, but to help them find true happiness forever and ever.  I know that the only way to happiness and success in this life, and for all eternity, is by learning the ways of Hashem and living those ways every day.  I, and hundreds of thousands of people that I have observed for over a half a century, are the absolute proof.  No speculation here but empirical data backing up what I am saying.

However, I have come across a dilemma.  Since I have tried to present this information in an orderly fashion, starting with a foundation of information in March of 2012 and continuing, book style, to the present, it is vital for my readers to start at the beginning and progress though my posts.  This progression has proven to be effective and necessary in growing in one’s service to Hashem and, hopefully, in giving guidance on how to grow.  The dilemma is that every post that I write sees 50 to 100 (8 Nov 2012 saw 268) new visitors who have not read any of my previous posts (this is the 171st post that I am presenting).  I became totally aware of the problem when I noticed that most questions that I get on Email these days are subjects that I already have covered.  It is easy for me to just refer a new reader to something I wrote months ago, but it is obvious that the impact of the information isn't there.  People cannot experience miraculous messages from Hashem without understanding why it is miraculous or even important.  A foundation of information is needed to enhance the impact and make it meaningful.

I am pleased that to date I have had close to 72,000 page views from 154 countries.  That is the 21st century answer to “be a light unto the nations.”  But, to me every reader is important and having the most profound impact on each reader is necessary if I am to help people.   I therefore have decided to start all over again.  Starting tomorrow, B”N, I would like to repost my first entry that was made 26 March 2012 and continue the sequence from there.  I expect to rewrite many of these posts since new information has become available and world events have given us information that we didn't have in March of 2012.  I therefore hope to make it more interesting to my seasoned readers who haven't missed a word.

Because of many other endeavors with which I am involved (I am a very busy guy), I don't anticipate writing every day as I did at the beginning of the blog.  Since I have received comments and private Emails, close to 2400, I may spend some days answering comments rather than posing the next segment.  There is a big difference between starting with a couple dozen readers and talking to hundreds of readers.  What will happen?  Only Hashem knows, but we will find out.  I also hope to continue to bring attention to vital posts, such as Rav Ben Artzi, since I think there are events that are so significant to our wellbeing.

My goal still is to help all the Jews and righteous non-Jews of the world to achieve the best eternity possible.  The only solution to the world’s problem is not political, military, social or any other nonsensical program, but to turn to the Owner of the Universe, open His Handbook of Instructions and follow His ways.  It is all happening as we were told thousands of years ago and the world situation will have a happy ending for those who do it Hashem’s way.  The biggest difference between March 2012 and now is we have very little time to get our act together.  The end is near and each one of us is responsible for his or her outcome.

I know I have used my sense of humor to try to keep all this more interesting, but now I will be using my “sense of serious (?)” to stress the urgency we face.  My big request is that since I cannot do this alone, I need your help to save the world.  Please help!  We have Hashem on our side and we will succeed – He will make sure of that.  But everyone, and I do mean everyone, needs to be involved.   Since some of the information I will be covering is Hashem’s secrets to success, I am asking that you tell everyone you know.  The only good secret in this world is the one you blab to everyone.  Just make sure you only tell this information to people you like.  It is not for enemy ears (unless you can save their lives, too).

Additional note:
I have been asked about my feelings concerning the Women of the Wall fiasco.  I have made contact with both the Women OF the Wall and the excellent Women FOR the Wall groups and have tried to help.  Why?  I am convinced that (1) since everything is from Hashem, (2) that we are in the end of the end of days and (3) that the worst testing will occur at this time; this is all serving the purpose of testing each one of us.  If you refer to my post entitled “Prophecy Being Fulfilled” dated 20 April 2012 you will understand what Hashem is telling us and how the WoW is serving the purpose of testing us.  Each one of you has the opportunity to see the nonsense of their agenda and to turn to Hashem for the answer.  Hashem is judging every concerned individual as to who knows the truth and who is buying the craziness of these women.  Those of us who turn to Hashem with complete trust, know that all we need to do is continue our instructions (repentance, prayer, charity, Torah study, fulfilling all the commandments, helping others, etc) and Hashem will take care of these misguided women.  If you know any of these women or anyone being sympathetic to their misguided ways, then your test is to reach out and help them find the correct path.  If you show anger or even hatred, you have failed the test.  Hashem is watching you and will judge, measure for measure, what your reaction is.  If you don’t know anyone being affected by their wayward actions, then just praying for them may be all that you need to do and Hashem will resolve the situation.  All I am saying is take care of yourself and your loved ones that you understand why this is happening (according to Malachi) and what it means to each one of us.  I have said it many times: “If you are following the ways of Hashem, you will be happy and successful.”  How simple an answer.
