More Messages from Hashem
One of the methods that I use for Torah study is called Daf Yomi (a page a day). Daf Yomi is a program being performed worldwide that covers a page of Talmud studied every day as part of a monumental program initiated by Rav Meir Shapiro in 1923 at the First World Congress of Agudath Israel in Vienna. With 2711 pages (5422 sides) in the Talmud, it takes about 7 and a half years to complete. We are now in the 12th cycle of study, which began March 2, 2005. Something that I have noticed, since I am always looking for messages from Hashem, it that the daily page of Talmud very often alludes to something happening in the world that day. I very often see connections in the weekly Torah portion and the Haftorah, but to see specific pertinent details in the Daf of the day is very spooky (the best word that I can use to describe the phenomenon). More importantly is when it is a very obvious message from Hashem.
After the post that I wrote last week, an Urgent Message, I was doing the Dafim (plural) on Shabbos and Shavuos only to be in awe of Hashem’s desire to send us vital messages. Daf 110 of tractate Kesubos ended with:
Our Rabbis taught: One should always live in the Land of Israel, even in a town most of whose inhabitants are idolaters, but let no one live outside the Land, even in a town most of whose inhabitants are Israelites; for whoever lives in the Land of Israel may be considered to have a G-d, but whoever lives outside the Land may be regarded as one who has no G-d. For it is said in Scripture, To give you the Land of Canaan, to be your G-d. Has he, then, who does not live in the Land, no G-d? But [this is what the text intended] to tell you, that whoever lives outside the Land may be regarded as one who worships idols. Similarly it was said in Scripture in [the story of] David, For they have driven me out this day that I should not cleave to the inheritance of the L-rd, saying: Go, serve other gods. Now, whoever said to David, 'Serve other gods?’ But [the text intended] to tell you that whoever lives outside the Land may be regarded as one who worships idols.
The Dafim continues for days with discussion and explanation of what it means to support idolatrous ways. After all if one lives in a community like Lakewood, Monsey, Brooklyn, Oak Park, Stamford Hills, etc, isn’t one living a very kosher life even though one is outside of Israel? The Dafim in the Talmud brings an explanation that is not so obvious. I will talk mostly about the United States, since the largest population of Jews in the world outside of Israel is there and, even though I lived in Europe for six years, the US is that country with which I am most familiar.
The biggest concern is that these countries are in great violation of the 613 commandments and as a citizen, one pays taxes, votes and gets involved both directly and indirectly in the policies of the idolatrous governments. A few of many examples includes being in a country or a state that has voted to condone same-sex marriages. There are two commandments stating the abomination of homosexuality, one stating that the punishment is death. This may sound ominous to one who lives in such a state, but what will be the method that Hashem will use to carry out the decree. Will you be in harm’s way when earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, drought, flooding hits the area of these idolatrous ways? Did you pay taxes to support the government and court system that instituted these idolatrous ways? Did you vote for candidates, even Jewish politicians, who said one thing and then did another that was totally against the Torah? Do you live in a state that condones abortion? Are you aware of how much money the US is giving to Arab and rogue nations that are dangerous to Jews and Israel? Are you paying taxes that are supporting FEMA Camps, the evil New World Order, the upcoming war, terrorist activities, money manipulation, police brutality, a corrupt justice system, false flag operations, complete separation of church and state (Hashem is not allowed in the public schools or the workplace unless it is for idolatrous decorations for idolatrous celebrations) even ISIS? ISIS broke off from Al Qaeda which was an American invention. Read these articles (there are many more) which talk about ISIS and who invented the organization and what horrors they perpetuate:
There are many more programs and ways that your tax dollars are at work supporting idolatry, but I believe you understand the basic concept that the Talmud is discussing. One note of clarification: this is not just talking national taxation, but state tax, local tax, sales tax, utility tax, interest paid to rogue banks and organizations, etc, etc, etc. There are many ways that you could be supporting idolatrous ways without even being aware.
One might say that such idolatrous ways exist in Israel as well. But, the fact that I can live here in many places, a totally observant life without being surrounded by idolatry is far more in keeping with the Torah than outside Israel.
Also consider what is being planned by Gog, his cabal, the Bilderberg Group (next month), world leaders, world governments, etc this summer, including Jade Helm, world war 3, false flag operations, terrorist attacks, the complete collapse of the economy and who knows what else (answer: Hashem). Another article (one of many as well as YouTube videos) to contemplate, and to further evaluate how your tax dollars are at work:
I need not ponder any further on this subject, since it couldn’t be more obvious how one is supporting idolatrous ways by just living outside of Israel. The Talmud mentions that this will be even more prevalent in the end of days (NOW).
Let me tell you a secret about how to take care of this situation – this is a secret, so make sure you tell everyone. If you completely turn to Hashem and have complete Emunah in His help, you will be in Israel and not even have to worry about what is coming up. I know that was a very loaded statement, but I have been a people-watcher for more than a half century; and, I can say with complete confidence that Hashem’s system is 100% measure for measure perfect. If people would spend much less time reviewing all the excuses for not being able to move to Israel and instead just make plans completely with Hashem’s help, they would be here much faster than they think.
I was in a situation 12 years ago that my wife and I had excellent jobs, two lovely homes, everything we needed, but we were not where we wanted to be – Eretz Yisroel. We decided to sell both homes, which resulted in immediate sales, retire from both our careers even though we were years from retirement time and pensions. We went to see a very Prominent Rabbi about what we were doing to get his blessing, and with an obvious chain of events, Hashem affected our making Aliyah. You may say, I obviously had the means (houses, investments, retirement within a few years) to be able to comfortably drop everything and move. Everything that I had then and have now was from Hashem. Because of us turning completely to Him, He saw well in advance our attitude towards wanting to follow Him, and made sure that we had everything that we needed. Three times a day as a minimum we say in Ashrei, “You open Your hand, and satisfy the desire of every living thing.” I can tell you stories of dozens of times that I needed sums of money for life’s events and miraculously it happened. My children and grandchildren’s occasions, school tuition, Bar Mitzvah, weddings, Brit Milah, etc, the buying of homes, the needs for Jewish education and observance, etc. This list is extensive, but the money came miraculously since it was always to satisfy a Mitzvah. I had stocks that sat for long periods of time and went up exactly when we needed them to increase; we even had loved ones who passed away and left inheritance which came exactly when we needed them. Everything was so obvious, nothing was random – Hashem did it all. We met people and wound up at certain places exactly when, according to Hashem’s plan for us, we needed those occurrences to happen. There is no such thing as luck, by chance, by coincidence or anything being random. Hashem has it planned out for us completely. As I said, even though I could give you a blow by blow description of our miraculous life, I have observed the same plan, measure for measure, for tens of thousands of people (including many, many of my readers) – totally consistent and totally Hashem. That is how to make Aliyah – don’t complain, just turn to Hashem and follow His instructions. Guaranteed in writing.
One last note: be totally honest. The individual who tells me “I do everything correctly,” is the blind individual who doesn’t have a clue what he or she is lacking. I believe I have everything in life that I want (bli ayin harah), but I constantly look to grow in my Yiddishkeit every day – I am never satisfied that I am doing my best. My life is one of learning, growing, improving and satisfying Hashem’s will. There is no end to my desire to come closer to Hashem – it is my greatest mission in life, and it includes helping everyone on Earth to do the same. Join me.
