"All of the Jews living abroad, G-d is warning them to urgently come to the holy land of Israel! If they don't make Aliyah, they will lose - G-d never loses. Anti-Semitism in the world, ISIS and extreme Islamists, will toss them from their homes and work and will take their property; they will be left with nothing."
If G-d is warning, then why aren't a lot of Jews listening? Most of them are modern liberals, so they won't listen to anybody. But what about the Jews who actually follow the Torah? Is life too good in the US?My Response:
You bring up some good points. How do I analyze what is going on? I like to refer to the first Geula. We were in Egypt and when we had the opportunity to leave, 80% of the Israelites weren't interested. That was after seeing 8 miraculous plagues. How can they be so stubborn? The same way the Jews are today. If one has a livelihood, a home, friends, etc in the US, as an example, why would one leave and go to Israel? Because Hashem is sending us so many messages; because of the obvious and scariness of what is happening in the world; because the fact that there is a planet coming towards Earth that will arrive about the end of March and destroy the world (not the planet but the debris in its tail), except for Israel; because scriptures say that two-thirds of the world population will be eliminated, except for Am Yisroel; because of the fact that we were told thousands of years ago that all this was going to happen, etc, etc, etc; the proof is so overwhelming.
What is brought down? All Jews will survive or at least be taken from this Earth, receive the remainder of their Tikun and returned to Earth. All the Israelites experienced Mount Sinai, but 80% of them were in Heaven with great remorse that they didn't go into the desert with Moshe. They received a Geula, but with much more difficulty, including coming back for additional reincarnations throughout history to get it right.
We have the same situation now. Those who have come to Israel will have it the easiest as long as they are observant Torah Jews. Those who said I will wait for Moshiach, since moving is such an inconvenience, will in the end get their Geula, their personal Tikun, but with much more difficulty. How much? The answer as always it measure for measure. A million Jews will have a million different situations depending upon how much they are doing now. Moving to Israel is a big help, but praying, repenting, giving charity, helping your fellow Jew, studying Torah and observing the commandments is essential. You as an individual are responsible for everything that is happening to you and how well you experience the Geula – with ease or with difficulty.
If you can ignore the Jew-hating media that is giving you such lies about this world, and start living the absolute truth that Hashem is telling us on a daily basis (along with what He has told us for thousands of years), you will reach Geula much easier and with much more pleasure. If you are skeptical, just think of your loved ones who depend on you. It is their welfare that is at stake as well as yours. If your only guide in life is your flawed human logic, you will have to live with whatever shortcomings and difficulties you have caused yourself. If you don’t believe this, you will be like the 80% in Egypt who received their Geula, but with much more difficulty and with great remorse. The most difficult part is, like the 80%, you won’t know until it is too late.
One last note: I am sure that I will get the question: What about non-Jews? The answer is one of three possibilities. 1. Convert. 2. Continue as a Noachide and know that Hashem loves you. 3. Continue as a Noachide with the possibility that you are a member of one of the lost tribes and will be coming to Israel anyway. I have said many times that I am not a prophet, and can only analyze according to what is said in Jewish scriptures. I do, however, fully believe in the mercy of Hashem and that any individual, Jew or non-Jew, who completely relies on Hashem and tries to follow His ways will be protected and reach salvation. With two thirds of the world population of 7.4 billion being eliminated, that leaves close to 2.5 billion people on this planet. Since that is far more than the total population of Jews, most of the people surviving will be non-Jews. All lost tribes? I have no idea, but it is a possibility. Like I said above about the Jews, what will happen to any individual will be measure for measure according to his or her preparation now. Come close to Hashem. Get away from all false prophets, false deities, false messiahs, and the future looks bright. Once again, if you are skeptical, you will find out when it is too late.
