Dear Ones,


We began a portion of this discussion in Chapter Five. Please allow me to repeat a little. There I stated, 'This is where we are at today. We are 3,287 years from when Moses spoke those Words. The Jewish people do not occupy all of the Land Promised to them by The Lord God.  Millions of Jews live outside of Eretz Yisroel. The Levites do not occupy the Forty-Eight Cities as intended in Scripture.  The land outside the Forty-Eight cities has been altered. I am saying the Mitzvot spoken of in the above Scriptures will need to be reestablished again as it was in the Days of Joshua!  There will be a serious war to reclaim our land. Jews from every corner of the world will come to help liberate The Land of Israel again. Some countries will be wiped off the face of the earth. Moshiach / Messiah will lead forces to defeat all our enemies. This time they will be defeated once and for all! I am saying The People will fight these wars again as in the days of Joshua.  So it is like each of us is standing before the great Prophet Moses hearing His Words again 3,287 Years later. We return to the subject at hand.

Once the Land of Israel is conquered, Jewish farmers will settle the land and plant crops of grain, i.e. wheat, oats, rye, barley and spelt.  Then at a period in Time after these Times they will harvest their First Fruit.'


In this week's Parshat, we learn about rejoicing because of all the good The Lord God Has Given to us.


Devarim 26.11

וְשָׂמַחְתָּ   בְכָל־הַטּוֹב   אֲשֶׁר נָתַן־לְךָ יְהוָֹה אֱלֹהֶיךָ וּלְבֵיתֶךָ אַתָּה וְהַלֵּוִי וְהַגֵּר אֲשֶׁר בְּקִרְבֶּךָ: ס


Deuteronomy 26.11

You shall rejoice with all the good that the Lord your God Gave you, and your household, and the Levi, and the proselyte in your midst.


All the good is the Gematria of 74. Eternity is also the Gematria 74. We are learning about time and Gematria. Here we have a unique connection between time and Gematria. 


We also learn why it is so important to Observe ALL 613 Mitzvot of The Torah. In this Parshat we learn of the Blessings and curses. Deuteronomy 27.26 states the last curse. 


Devarim 27.26

אָרוּר אֲשֶׁר לֹא־יָקִים אֶת־דִּבְרֵי הַתּוֹרָה־הַזֹּאת לַעֲשׂוֹת אוֹתָם וְאָמַר כָּל־הָעָם אָמֵן: פ


Deuteronomy 27.26

Cursed is the one that does not stand up for everything from Aleph to Tav of The Words of This, The Torah to perform Them and all The People said, 'Amen!.


If and when the People of Israel do not Observe a Mitzvot of Ha Torah this is a point in Time that one is cursed. Why am I pointing this out? It is because every Observance of The Torah is important. Well-meaning individuals attempt to persuade The People of Israel that the Observances in The Torah are filled and that we no longer need to Observe them. They mean well but they are mistaken! We discussed this in Chapter Five.


We are the Holy p\People because we have responsibilities to Observe The 613 Commands of The Torah. Observing the 613 Commands separates the people of Israel from the rest of the world. The Holy Scripture is informing us that we have a choice to be blessed or to be cursed. No one wants to be cursed!  The Parshat concludes with a reminder of what is is like to be Blessed.


Deuteronomy 28.1 - 8

And it shall come to pass, if you shall give heed diligently to The Voice of The Lord your God, to observe and to do All His Commandments which I command you this day, that the Lord your God will set you on high above all nations of the earth;  And all these blessings shall come on you, and overtake you, if you shall listen to the voice of the Lord your God. Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your ground, and the fruit of your cattle, the produce of your cows, and the flocks of your sheep. Blessed shall be your basket and your store. Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out. The Lord shall cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way, and flee before you seven ways. The Lord shall command the blessing upon you in your storehouses, and in all that you set your hand to, and he shall bless you in the land that the Lord your God gives you. 


The Lord Said,


Genesis 12.2 - 3

'And I Will Make of you a great nation, and I Will Bless you, and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, and curse him who curses you; and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed.'


Folks don't understand that the blessing for the people of Israel comes from our faithful adherence to do what The Lord God Has Commanded. If we fail to do what the Lord has commanded us, we are cursed. When we Observed the 613 Commands in the Torah, we are blessed.


On one day somewhere in the last Days of Moses's life, He took the time to remind us of this important principle of Observing every Command of the Torah. Now, Thousands of Years Later there are many Commands in the Torah that we cannot Observe. I shared a few in Chapter Five. Even though there are some Commands, we cannot fulfill we should do our very best to Observe the Commands that are within our reach. Honestly, This is not about how long one prays or studies The Torah each Day. It's about the sincerity of one's heart And the attitude that we possess. This returns us to the Gematria of 74. We are to express thanks and appreciation for every good thing the Lord Gives us.

בְכָל־הַטּוֹב

Vih Cawl - Hah Tohv / In All The Good [The Lord Has Given us]

ב2 כ20 ל30  ה5 ט9 ו6 ב2 = 74


What do we say each Day in our prayers?


Psalms 145. 

David's Psalm of praise. I will extol you, my God, O king; and I will bless your Name for ever and ever. Every day I will bless you, and I will praise your name for ever and ever. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. I will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty, and of your wondrous works. And men shall speak of the might of your awesome acts, and I will declare your greatness. They shall utter the fame of your great goodness, and shall sing of your righteousness. The Lord is Gracious and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of abundant loving kindness. The Lord is good to all, and His Mercies are over all His works. All your works shall praise you, O Lord; and your pious ones shall bless you.

Psalms 119.89

What did we read in Deuteronomy 28.1? 'And it shall come to pass if you shall give heed diligently to The Voice of The Lord your God...'


Each Time we thank The Lord God for what He Has Given us is a Point in Time! Each of us should have many of these points in Time. We choose the appointed Time to say 'Thank you!'.  We are the witnesses of His Blessings throughout eternity.

Course Text Begins Here:


Dear Ones, within this week's Parshat there are Thirteen usages of The Word הַיּוֹם 'This Day'.  I would like to highlight several of the usages of The Word הַיּוֹם 'This day'.


Deuteronomy 29.9

Moses Said to The People of Israel, 'You are standing up This day, all of you before The Lord your God; your captains of your tribes, your elders, and your officers, with all the men of Israel, Your little ones, your wives, and your stranger who is in your camp, from the hewer of your wood to the drawer of your water; so that [each of] you should enter into Covenant with The Lord your God, and into His oath, which the Lord your God Makes with you This Day.' 


This Day was the Day The People of Israel were Standing before The Presence of The Lord God and His Representative, Moses, their Teacher.  The Word נִצָּבִים Nee Tzaw Veem means to stand up also to stand up for a principle. The Torah is Sharing more than a principle. The Torah Is informing us that the people of Israel were actively engaged. They stood for the principles the observances of the Torah.What we read goes beyond just standing up.   נִצָּבִים Nee Tzaw Veem at this time and place means enthusiastically standing up, enthusiastically participating and enthusiastically engaging. 


נִצָּבִים Nee Tzaw Veem Is more than mental assent. צָּבִים Nee Tzaw Veem is more than agreeing with what The Torah Says.  צָּבִים Nee Tzaw Veem describes our 100% commitment our 100% firm engagement our 100% enthusiasm for The Words of The Torah, The Mitzvot, and The Covenant. At that time, The People of Israel displayed a distinct sharpness like a soldier who has intensely agonized over his preparation for dress inspection. He stands out. He looks sharp and crisp Among other soldiers. This is what The People of Israel were like among the nations of the world at that time. Mystically we were in a place and time.


נִצָּבִים

Nee Tzaw Veem 

To enthusiastically stand up for a principal

נ50 צ90 ב2 י10 ם40 = 192


וּמָקוֹם

Voo Mah Kohm

And [being in a certain] place

ו6 מ40 ק100 ו6 ם40 = 192


בַּפַּעַם

ּBah Pah Ahm

[Being] In a specific time

ב2 פ80 ע70 ם40 = 192


Later in our discussion we will read in Ezekiel 38 how The Lord collects His People. The root Word for מְקֻבֶּצֶת Mih Qu Beh Tzet meaning to gather is קבץ. The Gematria for קבץ is 192.


מְקֻבֶּצֶת

קַבֵּץ Kah Baytz / To Gather - To Collect 

ק100 ב2 ץ90 = 192


Mystically we make this link where we, The People of Israel were before The Lord God in a specific place at a specific time appearing distinct and sharp as we stood up enthusiastically stood up for The Torah, The Mitzvot, and The Covenant.  


Where are we today?  We move a little further into our Parshat To another day and time When our heart turned away from the Lord God, When we served the gods of other nations, when the words of The Curse came upon us, when we were stubbornly drunk with our business and our self-importance,When we are scattered among the nations,When our land is desolate and when all things punishments have come upon us we will come back to our Spiritual senses We will return to the Lord and enthusiastically stand up again for The Torah, The Mitzvot, and The Covenant. At that Place and at that time we will obey all that the Lord Commanded us On 'This Day' that Moses Spoke to us.


This is about The End of Days That our Father Jacob spoke of in Genesis 49.1


Beresheit 49.1

1:וַיִּקְרָא יַעֲקֹב אֶל־בָּנָיו וַיֹּאמֶר הֵאָסְפוּ וְאַגִּידָה לָכֶם אֵת אֲשֶׁר־יִקְרָא אֶתְכֶם בְּאַחֲרִית הַיָּמִים


Genesis 49.1

And Jacob called to his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you at the End of Days.


Do we understand what Jacob spoke of when He used the term End of Days?    Please notice the date September 9, 2015, in The 2016 Bible Journeys Calendar. Do we understand what happened on this day? Do we know what this Day was? Astute classmates may say This Day was the first day God began His Creating of the universe. They would be correct. However, This Day is more than just the First Day of The Lord God's Creating. There were Six days of creation. Five days of creating were during the Last Days of the Twelveth Month Of The Original Calendar. These five days were prior to the Lord God resting.  In The Jewish Calendar, they are from Elul 25 - 29.


Let's return to The 2016 Bible Journeys Calendar. Notice Day Six of Creating. Day Six in 2015 is a Monday. Originally Day Six was a Friday. The Sixth Day of Creating is not part of The Last Days. Day Six is The Day of Judgment that we read about in Genesis Three. 


On The Sixth Day we are Taught Adam's dust was gathered from the location in front of The Holy Altar of The Holy Temple in Jerusalem. The Holy Dust was kneaded into a shapeless mass. In The Third Hour, Adams limbs were shaped. In The Fourth Hour, The Lord God 'Breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and Adam became a living soul'.  In The Fifth Hour, Adam arose and stood on his feet. In The Sixth Hour, Adam Gave Names to all the Animals. In The Seventh Hour, Eve was separated from Adam. In The Eighth Hour, Eve became his Wife. They consummated their relationship. Cain and his twin sister were born. In Ninth Hour Adam and Eve were Instructed In The Seven Laws that the universe is to operate by. In The Tenth Hour Adam and Eve sinned. In The Eleventh, Adam and Eve were Tried Judged. In The Twelfth Hour before the sunset and Sabbath began in Gan Eden Adam and Eve were expelled. Sabbath 38b


The point is on The Day of Judgment humankind departed The Garden of Eden. The Prophet Isaiah Prophesied that on this same Day, i.e. The Day of Judgment,  the outcasts among Israel will be gathered back.


Isaiah 27.13

And it shall come to pass on that Day, that the great shofar shall be blown, and those shall come who were lost in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship The Lord on the Holy Mount at Jerusalem.


This immediately follows the Shmittah Year. Our Rabbis Teach that the end of the Seven Year Cycle The Son of David, i.e. Messiah will come on The First Day of The First Year of the New Seven Year Cycle. Sanhedrin 97a


This will be The Year of Jubilee when The Land is Returned, all prior debt is forgiven, and all slaves are released among The People of Israel.


Our Parshat Speaks of This Day in Deuteronomy 30.1 - 7 Verse Five begins with the Word וֶהֱבִיאֲךָ  Veh Heh Vee Ah Kaw meaning 'to bring.' Please make a note of this because we will return to this point when we discuss Moses prophecy later in this discussion. Why? The Gematria points to The Jubilee Year.


Devarim 30.1 - 7

'And it shall come to pass, when all these things have come upon you, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before you, and you shall call them to mind among all the nations, where the Lord your God has driven you, And shall return to the Lord your God, and shall obey his voice according to all that I command you this day, you and your children, with all your heart, and with all your soul; That then the Lord your God will turn your captivity, and have compassion upon you, and will return and gather you from all the nations, where the Lord your God has scattered you. If your outcasts have been driven out to the farthest parts of heaven, from there will the Lord your God gather you, and from there will he fetch you; And the Lord, your God, will bring you into the land that your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it; and he will do you good, and multiply you above your fathers. And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart, and the heart of your seed, to love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, that you may live. And the Lord your God will put all these curses upon your enemies, and on those who hate you, who persecuted you.'


Some Teach that we do not know the Day or The Hour Messiah will come/ This is not entirely true. 


We know Messiah will come immediately following 'The Last Days. The last Days are 25 Elul through 29 Elul.


We know that Messiah will come immediately after the Last Days of the week. The Last Days of The Week Are Friday and Sabbath. The Lord God is precise.


Genesis 2.2 - 3

And on the Seventh Day God Ended His work that He had made, and He Rested on The Seventh Day from all His work that He had made. And God Blessed The Seventh Day, and Sanctified It; because that in it He had rested from all his work which God Created and Made.


We know The Messiah will come on Sabbath Rosh Ha Shannah immediately following the Shmittah Year. Sanhedrin 97a 

Some believe Messiah will come following the Seventh Seven Year Cycle, i.e. the 49th Year. [7 Years x 7 Years] - Some think The Messiah will come in the Fiftieth Year. Some believe the Fiftieth Year is the Year of Jubilee.


It is on This Day, i.e. Rosh Ha Shanah that we, The People of Israel gather to weep and seek repentance for our sins. 


We know The Messiah will come in The Last Days of The Last Of The Years according to Ezekiel 38.

 

Yehezekiel 38.8

מִיָּמִים רַבִּים תִּפָּקֵד בְּאַחֲרִית הַשָּׁנִים תָּבוֹא ׀ אֶל־אֶרֶץ ׀ מְשׁוֹבֶבֶת מֵחֶרֶב מְקֻבֶּצֶת מֵעַמִּים רַבִּים עַל הָרֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל אֲשֶׁר־הָיוּ לְחָרְבָּה תָּמִיד וְהִיא מֵעַמִּים הוּצָאָה וְיָשְׁבוּ לָבֶטַח כֻּלָּם:  ט


After many Days, you will have paid for [past sins], at the End of The Years you will come to The Land that is restored from the destruction. You will be gathered from among many nations, [By The Lord] to The Mountains of Israel that were continually desolate [of people]. And He will bring you forth from nations, and you shall dwell securely with them [your people]. 


Dear Ones The People of Israel do not posses all of The Holy Land The Lord God Gave to us. How will The People of Israel gain ownership and full control of every meter of The Land of Israel?  Possessing all The Holy Land will require a huge miracle. Today we are capable of receiving minute by minute information as it unfolds in our world. We know the present Day picture in The Holy Land of Israel looks gruesome. It looks like war is coming. There are disputes as to who owns all The Holy Land of Israel. These disputes must be settled! They will be settled!


Moses Prophesied, 'The Lord your God Will Bring you into [The Holy Land Of Israel] which your fathers possessed, and you will possess The Holy Land Of Israel; the Lord, your God, Will do good for you, and multiply you above your fathers.'


Devarim 30.5

וֶהֱבִיאֲךָ יְהוָֹה אֱלֹהֶיךָ אֶל־הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר־יָרְשׁוּ אֲבֹתֶיךָ וִירִשְׁתָּהּ וְהֵיטִבְךָ וְהִרְבְּךָ מֵאֲבֹתֶיךָ:  ו


We know Deuteronomy 30.5 is a prophesy for our present age because of the Words  הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר־יָרְשׁוּ אֲבֹתֶיךָ .


Time & Gematria - Possess Land.jpg


The אֲבֹתֶיךָ Ah Voh Teh Caw means 'Your Fathers'. Deuteronomy 30.5 informs us that after Joshua and The Army of Israel conquered all The Holy Land, then partitoned The Holy Land to each Tribe, then possed The Holy Land and Then because of our sins were displaced from The Holy Land of Israel and scattered to the four corners of the earth. It is from the four corners of The Earth that The Lord God Will bring each of us back to The Holy Land. 


Today more of The People of Israel live outside of The Holy Land than those living in The Holy Land. 


- The Lord God has not brought all of us To The Holy Land of Israel yet. 

- The People of Israel do not possess all The Holy Land of Israel that our Fathers possessed.  Today The People of Israel possess a portion of The Holy Land, so this portion of the prophecy remains to be fulfilled. The People of Israel must possess the entire Holy Land including all of the Holy City, Jerusalem. Moses prophesied, ' You will possess The Land.' 


The birth of Isaac was to give Abraham a son to inherit or to possess The Land of Canaan. The Gematria of יָרְשׁוּ  Yaw Rih Shoo meaning to possess is 516. The Gematria of יוֹרֵשׁ Yoh Raysh meaning to inherit is 516. In Chapter Five we discussed Mitzvot that require us to both posses all The Holy Land of Israel and to inherit all the Holy Land of Israel. In Chapter Five I stated there are some Mitzvot that cannot be Observed until The People of Israel possess all of the Holy Land. What does this mean? Deuteronomy 30.5 remains to be entirely fulfilled.


Dear Reader the clock is ticking until The Lord God Brings The People of Israel back into complete possession of The Land of Israel. What conditions MUST exist for The People of Israel to Possess all the Land of Israel? A question arises in regards to Jeremiah 33.


Jeremiah 33.12 - 18

Thus says The Lord of Hosts; Again in this place, which is desolate without man and without beast, and in all its cities, shall be a habitation of shepherds who make their flocks lie down. In the cities of the mountains, in the cities of the Shephelah, and in the cities of the Negev, and in the land of Benjamin, and in the places around Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, shall the flocks pass again under the hands of him who tells them, Says The Lord.  Behold, The Days come, Says The Lord, that I will perform that good thing that I have promised to the house of Israel and the house of Judah. In those 

Days, and at that Time, I will cause an offshoot of righteousness to grow up from David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in The Land. In those Days, Judah shall be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely; and this is the name by which she shall be called, 'The Lord is our Righteousness.' For thus Says The Lord; David shall never lack a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel; Neither shall The Priests, or The Levites lack a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle Meal Offerings, and to do sacrifice continually. 


The 'Again' in Verse Twelve is implied. Is this about two destructions of The Land of Israel? Some Rabbis were opposed to Israel becoming a nation in 1948. Why? Because, The Lord did not do this. If they are correct is there the possibility of another destruction? 


Those in control of The Holy Land must return The Holy Land to the tribes of original inheritance BEFORE The Year of Jubilee. In Joshua's Day, The Holy Land was taken little by little through the war at The Lord God's Direction. Perhaps this will be the course again. . . Then perhaps a second destruction awaits. I hope not!!


The People of Israel are in The Time of Blessing and the Time of Curse. Many of The People of Israel fulfill the Observances they can but cannot fulfill them all. This is the curse. We are stuck. The great Sage, Rambam cautions us to be careful about attempting to pinpoint the prophetic dates. Rabbi Nosson Scherman, The Stone Edition Tanach (Mesorah Publications, Ltd., Brooklyn, N.Y. 1993), p. 351Second Edition p 1299,


There is a process. I don't see the process alining with Holy Scripture at this time. This could change quickly! To possess The Holy Land means Time will be required to acquire ever meter of The Holy Land again. Time will be required to divide between Tribes. Time will be required to determine which Tribe each of us descends from.  Then the Tribal Leaders must settle descendants into their Land. Then after each of us are settled into our Land. It is then that each of us possess The Land. Then we can again begin celebrating the Year of Jubilee in The Holy Land Of Israel. 


By some accounts we are in the 49th year, I.e the Year of Jubilee right now, i.e. this Year. By other accounts, the Year of Jubilee will begin on Rosh HaShanah 5776 and conclude on Yom Kipper of 5777 FC. At night fall.


If in the very near future the Bet Din were to declare this to be the Year of Jubilee according to one of the above calculations Great miracles beyond our imagination would be required. The Bet Din cannot proclaim a true Year of Jubilee until The People of Israel are completely in possession of The Holy Land. In The Year of Jubilee, The Holy Land must be returned to the Tribe from which it inherited it. 


הֱבִיאֲךָ Heh Vee Ah Kaw meaning 'to bring' in Deuteronomy 30.5 is the Gematria of 44. The Word Jubilee is also the Gematria of 44.



וֶהֱבִיאֲךָ 

Veh Heh Vee Ah Kaw / And To Bring

ו6  ה5  ב2  י10  א1  ך20  = 44


בַּיֹּבֵל

Bah Yoh Vayl / In Jubilee

ב2 י10 ב2 ל30  = 44


לְבָבִי

Lih Vaw Vee / My Heart

ל30 ב2 ב2 י10  = 44


What is the Mystical meaning? The Lord God Brings The People of Israel to The Holy Land to possess The Land so we can return to Observing all Mitzvot, especially The Year of Jubilee. In the process of bringing us to the Holy Land The Lord God Circumcises our heart.


This is a discussion about Time and Gematria. At this Time, The People of Israel are still living in the Time of Blessing and curse. The curse is that we are not Observing all 613 Commands of The Torah. Many of us live outside The Land, Our hearts are not circumcised. We do not possess all The Land. We cannot pass The Land to our children as an inheritance. The Third Temple must be built. Articles of The Holy Temple must be restored. The Priests and Levites must be dedicated and assigned to their positions.


Messiah must come. There is the war that must be fought. The enemies of Israel must be defeated. Children must be born in Israel thus showing security. We must multiply.  Then when all is in order as The Lord God Intends it to be we will do Good. We will be the Blessing spoken of in Genesis Twelve.

Dear Friends so many things are happening on Rosh Ha Shanah it may feel overwhelming. We will discuss some of the activities on Rosh HaShanah but first, for a minute let's focus on one area each of us can do. Let's focus on an Observance each of us can understand. Each of us have at one time or another experienced the warmth of a kind act. We know how good kinds feels. What's think back to a time when someone did something for us that made us feel so good. Kindness has many shapes and forms that make others feel so incredibly good. Each of us possesses the power to be kind. Solomon wrote:


Mishlei 16.24

צוּף־דְּבַשׁ אִמְרֵי־נֹעַם מָתוֹק לַנֶּפֶשׁ וּמַרְפֵּא לָעָצֶם: כה


Proverbs 16.24

Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.


אִמְרֵי־נֹעַם Ee Mih Ray - Noh Ahm - 'Pleasant Words'


Pleasant Words represent Virtue. Virtue is behavior that shows high moral standards of goodness and decency. Being virtuous requires us to respect others. Sweet talk is cheap and sometimes disgusting. Solomon's points to the foundation behind 'Pleasant words'. Solomon is saying the one who is really intelligent has control of her / his words.


We from time to time one may feel irritable and grumpy. Sometimes things don't go the way one needs or wants. One may spew a few naughty words. Perhaps someone does something to us and we retaliate with a curse. Each of us knows what it feels like to be snapped at, criticized, the brunt of another's unhappiness. It is obvious that these are not Pleasant Words.


We know the difference between Pleasant Words and naughty words. Each of us are acquainted with attitudes and words that cause pain. We do not need to be a Rabbi or a Torah Teacher to understand the point Solomon is making.


If one is looking for a husband or wife, do you think they would look for a crude nasty mouth person? Do you think they would look for a person with anger and abuse issues? A crude nasty mouth person is revolting. And abrasive person is toxic.


When one looks for a mate they look for a gentle kind warm hearted loving tender and understanding individual who speaks pleasant words. Even though many of us are not looking for a mate this is the type of individual that we should strive to be. This should be our goal.


We understand that it is the foundation behind what we say. It is very good to see Pleasant Words. Very good to uplift others Kind Words and Deeds. It is excellent to control our emotions, our feelings and our attitudes when communicate to others. We do not want to be a source of pain or hurt.


Just as Solomon said 'Pleasant Words are like a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.' Each of us are attracted to pleasant words that are spoken by individuals whose actions are in agreement with what they're saying. This is like honey to Soul. On Rosh HaShanah we enjoy honey because honey is sweet. We want our New year to be sweet like honey. Now that we realize our words are like a honeycomb we should bring in The New Year with plenty of pleasant Words. Pleasant words gives life and health to each of us. David wrote,


Psalms 19

The Torah of The Lord is Perfect, reviving the soul; The testimony of The Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The Statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The Commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of The Lord is clean, enduring for ever; The Judgments of The Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even very fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.


David reveals to us that the pleasant words which are sweeter than honey Words of ha Torah.


Proverbs 25.11

Solomon said, A Word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.


At Rosh Ha Shanah we dip slices of the Apple in honey. The apple represents The Garden of Eden our first parents were expelled from because of sin. Each Rosh Hashanah we mystically returned to the place of judgment in The Garden of Eden. The garden of Eden has the scent of an apple orchard. Gan Eden is pleasant. The Apple is bitter sweet. An apple may have a tart taste and a sweet taste. What does this mean? It is not fun to be judged. It is not enjoyable to have to review one's sins. The Apple represents the place where our first parents sent. That is bitter. Being expelled from The Garden of Eden was bitter for first parents. Now we have the opportunity to take the bitterness the tartness of the Apple and change its taste by dipping the Apple in the honey of The Words of The Torah.


In Genesis 3.9 the Lord God Called to Adam. Adam and Eve were in hiding because of their sin. They tried to cover their bodies that were left naked after His Divine Presence left them. The Word וַיִּקְרָא Vay Yee Kih Raw means and He Called. The root Word is יִּקְרָא Yee Kih Raw meaning to call. The Gematria for Yee Kih Raw is 311. The Lord God did not call to Adam and Eve in a harsh manner. The Lord God's Call was with Pleasant Words even though He knew Adam and Eve had already sinned.


יִּקְרָא

Yee Kih Raw / to call

י10 ק100 ר200 א1 = 311


אִישׁ

Eesh / Husband / Man

א1 י10 ש300 = 311


הָאִשָּׁה

Haw Ee Shaw / The Wife

ה5 א1 ש300 ה5 = 311


From These Three Words we learn how the Husband is to call to his wife.The Letter ה Hey is used as an article that elevates the Word used in conjunction with it. Here it is הָאִשָּׁה The Wife. The Word עַל means upon or near. When the man על העשה calls upon his wife he calls with Pleasant Words. The Wife is above him Spiritually. We know this because of the Article, i.e. the Letter ה Hey that proceeds the Word אִשָּׁה Wife. He the husband shows his wife respect through the Pleasant Words he calls to her with. We see this with the combination of the Words על העשה meaning to call to one's wife. The Gematria is 411.


עַל־הָאִשָּׁה

Ahl Haw Eeshaw / [To Call] upon One's Wife

ע70 ל 30 ה5 א1 ש300 ה 5 = 411


It is a little different when the Wife calls upon her husband. The husband is not on the same Spiritual level has his wife. In this instance the husband does not have the Letter Hey proceeding him. Yet even though this is the situation the wife because of her lofty Spiritual position follows The Lord God's example when she calls to her husband. She uses Pleasant Words.


עַל־אִישׁ

Al Eesh / [To Call] upon One's Husband.

ע70 ל30 א1 י10 ש300 = 411


The Gematria of Ee Mih Ray - Noh Ahm - 'Pleasant Words' is


אִמְרֵי־נֹעַם

Ee Mih Ray - Noh Ahm - 'Pleasant Words'

א1 מ40 ר200 י10 נ50 ע70 ם40 = 411


My intent is to show Mystically that a great deal of respect must exist between The Wife and the Husband. One should be careful to speak Pleasant Words. The Words should bring sweetness to the soul. the Words should be rich in Torah. The Words should restore. /The Words should bring health.


Friends, I used the example of a husband and wife. The same principles apply to each of us.

May each of us join at the Yom Tov Table this evening with plenty of pleasant words. May each that read and follow the words written in this discussion be written in the Book of Life for 5776 and all eternity.


Dear Friends, I forgive anyone who has wronged me in any way this past year or thought-out my lifetime.


Dear Friends, I am sorry for any Word or deed that I have done to you or any other being in this past year and throughout my life time. I ask forgiveness.


לְשָׁנָה טוֹבָה תֵּכָּתֵבוּ וְתֵחָתֵמוּ


Lih Shw Naw Toh Vaw Tay Caw Tay Voo Vih Tay Chaw Tay Moo


'May you be inscribed and sealed in The Book of Life.'



This evening Rosh HaShanah begins. Rosh HaShanah is a very important time. Wives prepare round Challah Loafs, Honey, Apples and other special foods for this evenings. Wives will light Yom Tov Candles before The holiday begins and say a Special Brachah / blessing. Husbands will say evening prayers and then return home to celebrate The Day of Remembrance.


Rosh HaShanah is the birthday of the world. We are entering year 5776 F.C. [From Creation]. Rosh HaShanah is the Day of Judgment. Many each of us have a favorable verdict. May are names continue to be written in The Book of Life.


As we prepare to enter this new year each of us have important responsibilities even though we may not realize what they are at this time. In the past week or so new members have joined my Facebook page. I want each individual to feel welcome. Please join our learning groups and lets learn the Torah together. God willing, each week I write one or more posts. The posts are placed in one or more Learning Groups. New members have expressed a desire to learn with me. I am honored. The way we learn together is by belonging to a Learning Group. Members are welcome to join as many groups as they choose. Our emphasis is upon improving ourselves and being better individuals.


We say that Rosh HaShanah is The Day of Remembrance. The Lord God Remembered Sarah in Genesis 21, Rachel in Genesis 30, and Hannah in 1 Samuel 1. We say Rosh HaShanah is the Day of Judgment. Beth Shammai Taught, 'There will be three groups at the Day of Judgment, one of thoroughly righteous, one of thoroughly wicked, and one of intermediate.' Rosh ha Shanah 16b.23. We know Adam And Eve were judged for their sin on Rosh HaShanah. in the ninth of the day in which Adam and Eve were Created on The Lord God Instructed them in The Seven Laws, i.e. He was Commanded not to eat of the tree, in the Tenth hour, Adam and Eve sinned; in The Eleventh Hour, Adam and Eve tried, and in the twelfth he was expelled from The Garden of Eden and departed. Sanhedrin 38b, Dr. Akiva Gamliel Belk, The 2016 Bible Journeys Calendar (Cedar Hill, Missouri - B'nai Noach Torah Institute, LLC Publishers, 2015) September.


We have been praying to The Lord God leading up to Rosh Ha Shanah asking that our sins be forgiven. We pray that all the sins of The People of Israel be forgiven. We should pray that all the sins of humanity be forgiven. For many years now during the afternoon of Rosh Hashanah... the Festival of Trumpets... i.e., the Festival of the Blowing of the Shofar... the Birthday of the World... the Day of Judgment... I have walked to a live body of water, one that has fish, a creek... a stream... a river... a lake... a reservoir... to observe the Tashlich Prayer, meaning "You {God} Will Cast all their sins into the depths of the sea," Micah 7:19


Receiving forgiveness for our sins is not a complicated matter. The Lord God Taught that when sin lies at our door we must improve. In other Words, we acknowledge our failing, we make a plan to not repeat our wrong. We reverse course. We turn ourself around. We do in another direction a better direction. We improve. We pay restitution for our error. We do not repeat our error. Yet, some time we repeat our error over and over again. Sometimes we repeat our errors in defiance. Now we are at Rosh Ha Shanah. We are about to be judged. What do we do? We improve!


The Day of Judgment humankind departed The Garden of Eden. The Prophet Isaiah Prophesied that on this same Day, i.e. The Day of Judgment, the outcasts among Israel will be gathered back.


Rosh Ha Shanah is the Day when we blow The Shofar.

Rosh Ha Shanah is the Day at sometime in the future that Messiah will come.


Isaiah 27.13

And it shall come to pass on that Day, that the great shofar shall be blown, and those shall come who were lost in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship The Lord on the Holy Mount at Jerusalem.


This immediately follows the Shmittah Year. Our Rabbis Teach that the end of the Seven Year Cycle The Son of David, i.e. Messiah will come on The First Day of The First Year of the New Seven Year Cycle. Sanhedrin 97a


Dear Friends so many things are happening on Rosh Ha Shanah it may feel overwhelming. For a minute let's focus on one area each of us can do. Let's focus on an Observance each of us can understand.









The remainder of this discussions lists areas The People of Israel are to remember. I would like to discuss two

Exodus 13.3

In this Weeks Parshat, our Teacher Moses shares about rebellion. How serious is the rebellion among the People of Israel, among us today?


Deuteronomy 21.27

Moses Said, 'For I know everything from Aleph to Tav of 'Meh Rih Yih Caw' your rebelliousness and your stiff neck. Behold! While I am still alive with you this day, you have been rebellious against the Lord; and how much more after my death!'


כִּי אָנֹכִי יָדַעְתִּי אֶת־מֶרְיְךָ


'For I know everything from Aleph to Tav of Meh Rih Yih Caw'


your rebelliousness. . .' Who is Moses speaking of? Is he speaking of The People of Israel? Is he speaking of us?


מֶרְיְךָ

'Meh Rih Yih Caw' means 'your rebellion'.

מ40 ר200 י10 ך20 = 270


The Gematria of מֶרְיְךָ Meh Rih Yih Caw' your rebelliousness is 270. What does this represent?


Dear Friends, we are among The Ten Days of Repentance. We should be examining ourselves. We should be considering every possibility of sin. What did the Lord Say about the Generation that was destroyed in the flood?


Bereisheit 6.5

וַיַּרְא יְהֹוָה כִּי רַבָּה רָעַת הָאָדָם בָּאָרֶץ וְכָל־יֵצֶר מַחְשְׁבֹת לִבּוֹ רַק רַע כָּל־הַיּוֹם: ו


Genesis 6.5

And God Saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.


רַע כָּל־הַיּוֹם Evil All the Day. רַע Rah means evil. The Gematria of Rah is also 270.


רַע

Rah / Evil

ר200 ט70 = 270


Dear Friends the issue with many of us is we were raised in life styles where Torah Observance was not prevalent. Our lives were not filled with Words of The Torah. Our lives were not surrounded by Torah living. Unfortunately, for many of us the abnormal is maybe be common for us. What is the abnormal?


As I share what should be abnormal for us it is with a caveat; I was also raised estranged to The 613 Observances of The Torah. I staired at looking women. I used awful language. I drank to excess and beyond. My attitude was one of, 'My way or the highway.' I was rugged and crude and much more. At that time, the Observances of The Torah were strange to me. My choice of clothing was outrageous. I did not dress as a man with virtue. My choice of clothing was not moral. I did not dress like an individual with high moral standards.


Today, decades later my past life has slowly become strange.


Many of us are somewhere in-between how I use to live and how I now live.


What is the point? Some us need to back up a little. We should consider if we are estranged to The Torah as I was. The Word נֵכָר Nah Cawr means 'Strange'. The Gematria for נֵכָר Nah Cawr is 270.


נֵכָר

Nah Cawr / Strange

נ50 כ20 ר200 = 270


The point is this. Perhaps we are estranged to The Observances of The Torah because of how we were raised before we began our return to The Lord / HaShem. Are we rebellious? Maybe! Do we guard how we speak? Is our choice of clothing modest? How do we conduct our lives? What does guarding the Sabbath mean to us? Does guarding The Sabbath have meaning for us?


Dear ones we are in the midst of the Ten Days of Repentance for the Year 5776 From Creation. So studying Vayeilech is appropriate. Why is studying Vayeilech appropriate? Moses speaks to us, The People of Israel as a Prophet. That very day he perceived rebellion among the hearts of The People of Israel. Moses was speaking to each of us. What Moses said might be difficult to except. Yet, we know Moses had the clearest perception of any prophet. We know Moses was right still it is difficult to accept. What is rebellion?


Rebelliousness - showing a desire to resist authority, control, or convention:


Disobedience - failure or refusal to obey rules or someone in authority:


Mutiny - an open rebellion against the proper authorities,


Insurgence - rising in active revolt:


Insubordination - defiance of authority; refusal to obey orders


Verse Twenty-Seven causes me a great deal of concern. I am troubled! In Chapter Eight we discussed the end of times. In this Parshat, we are knocking on the door again. Verse Twenty-Nine Discusses our Spiritual condition at The End of Days.


Moses Said, Evil will befall you at The End of Days?


Deuteronomy 31.29

For I know that after my death you will completely corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way that I have commanded you; and evil will befall you at the End of Days because you will do evil in the sight of The Lord, to provoke Him to anger through the work of your hands.


Are we living in this Time? Perhaps. Are some of us are provoking The Lord? Has HaShem Turned away from us. Should we be asking, 'How long Ooh Lord Will You Turn away from your people?'

Day of Atonements

Dear Ones,

How should we approach Yom Kippur? Here is how we should approach Yom Kippur. 


When we fail, we should immediately take action to seek forgiveness. We should close each day by reflecting on our actions and seek repentance for any misdeeds. We should do the same at weeks end and on each Rosh Chodesh / New Month.  During the Month of Elul, we turn our attention towards the coming Day of Judgment on Rosh HaShanah. During the Ten Days of between Rosh Ha Shanah and Yom Kippur, we seek forgiveness of our failings. On Yom Kippur, we plead for forgiveness of our sins.


The good news is that the Lord God is forgiving. Still, we need to do our part. There are six Observances mentioned between Leviticus 23.27 - 32.


Vayikra 23.27

אַךְ בֶּעָשׂוֹר לַחֹדֶשׁ הַשְּׁבִיעִי הַזֶּה   יוֹם הַכִּפֻּרִים  הוּא מִקְרָא־קֹדֶשׁ יִהְיֶה לָכֶם 

וְעִנִּיתֶם אֶת־נַפְשֹׁתֵיכֶם וְהִקְרַבְתֶּם אִשֶּׁה לַיהוָֹה:  כ


Leviticus 23.27 - 28

Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement; it shall be a holy gathering to you; and you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. 


ONE: On The Tenth Day of The Seventh Month

The Observances for Yom Kippur are time-related. They must be Observed beginning eighteen minutes before sundown in one area on the Tenth Day of The Seventh Month. The Observances must continue through the entire night and day until after nightfall on the Eleventh. 


TWO: You shall afflict your Souls, i.e. fast. 

The fast on Yom Kippur is a 26 Hour Fast. Young children should not fast. Nursing mothers should not fast. Individuals requiring medicine should not fast. 


How does one fast? We do not eat or drink anything for 26 hours. This may seem challenging. This is how The People of Israel have fasted for thousands of years. The Mitzvah is, 'You shall afflict your soul.' Fasting is a way to a afflict one's soul. Removing soft cushions from chairs is another way to affect one's soul.


Other forms of afflicting ones are not washing one's face, not bathing or showering, combing one's hair, using deodorant, perfume, makeup, cologne, not rinsing one's mouth, brushing one's teeth, not washing one's hands except the fingertips. This does not include changing a dirty diaper. Using common sense is important. One should not wear leather shoes. Marital relations are suspended for the day of atonement.


THREE: Offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.

This Mitzvah is discussed in greater detail in Numbers 29.7 - 11


Numbers 29.8- 11

You shall offer a burnt offering to the Lord for a sweet savor; one young bull, one ram, and seven one-year-old lambs without blemish. And their meal offering shall be of fine flour mixed with oil, [[as prescribed] Three-Tenth [of an ephah] measure for the bull, and Two -Tenths [of an ephah]  measure for the ram, and-and A Tenth [of an ephah] measure for each of the Seven lambs. [You shall offer] a young male goat for a sin offering; in addition to the [special] Atonement sin offering [of Yom Kippur] , [in addition you shall offer] the continual burnt offering [in the morning] , and it's meal offering and the drink offerings.


Today we do not have a Holy Temple. We do not offer these animals, grain or drink on Yom Kippur as it was done in the past. Instead, we offer songs of praise. When the Third Temple and worship are restored, sacrifices will return.


The Gematria of יוֹם הַכִּפֻּרִים   Yom Kippur is 411. The Gematria of  טֹבֹת meaning good or pleasant is 411.  The Day of Atoning is intended to be good for us. 


יוֹם הַכִּפֻּרִים

Yom Kippur / Day of Atoning!

י 10 ו6  ם40    ה5  כ 20 פ 80 ר 200 י  10 ם 40 = 411

ש300 נ50 ה5 = 355


בְּשִׂמְחָה

Bih See Maw Chawh / In or with Joy

ב2  ש300  מ40  ח8  ה5 == 355


Leviticus 23.29

For whatever soul it is that does not become afflicted in that same Day, he shall be cut off from among his people. 

FOUR: Affliction

Dear ones, The observances of This Day are so serious that one must be careful not to neglect afflicting themselves.  If one were to fail to afflict themselves, they will be cut off from among The People of Israel and will die prematurely without children. Again, I mentioned before how one may I afflict themselve.


Leviticus 23.30 - 31

And whatever soul it is who does any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people. You shall do no kind of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.


FIVE: It is forbidden to work on Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur is a High Holy Day. All the Shabbat prohibitions apply on Yom Kippur.


You shall do no kind of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.


Leviticus 23.32

It shall be to you A Sabbath of rest, and you shall afflict your souls; in the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, shall you celebrate your Sabbath. 


SIX: Yom Kippur is Solemn Day of Rest 

This means one is to be serious about the Day of Atonements yet not stress or worry about anything especially work. We need to concentrate on our appeals to HaShem. We must not allow distractions. We are to keep this unique balance. We must be very concerned for our past wrong deeds. We must seek forgiveness for our sins. Yet, we need balance. 


Remember it was on this day that Moses came down from Mt Sinai with the second set of The Two Tablets of Stone symbolizing that The Lord God Had forgiven The people for the sin of the Golden Calf. Therefore The Tenth Day of?The Seventh Month became the Eternal Day for Forgiveness. So This means we must temper our insensitivity with confidence that The Lord God Will Forgive us.


May our 26 hours of fasting, afflicting our souls, seeking forgiveness, pouring out our hearts before HaShem and seeking pardon be successful. 


Yom Kippur is The Day of ATONEMENTS! There are many Atonements we must seek for. The Lord God Provided us this Day of Atoning to be successful. We must be serious. We must not take this Day lightly! When we approach The Day Of Atoning correctly, we can have confidence. It other we may rest assured that The Lord God Will Forgive and Pardon.

Time & Gematria: A Time of Justice And Security

At The End of Days


Dear Ones,


In the previous Chapter, we discussed A Time of Rebellion at The End of Days. Parshat Vayeilech concludes with The Words:


Deuteronomy 31.27 - 30

For I know your rebellion, and your stiff neck; behold, while I am still alive with you this day, you have been rebellious against the Lord; and how much more after my death! Gather to me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to witness against them. For I know that after my death you will completely corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way that I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because you will do evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands. And Moses spoke in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the words of this poem until they were ended.


We are informed in Ha'azinu that The People of Israel will be judged for their rebellion. 


Devarim 32.36

כִּי־יָדִין יְהוָֹה עַמּוֹ וְעַל־עֲבָדָיו יִתְנֶחָם כִּי יִרְאֶה כִּי־אָזְלַת יָד וְאֶפֶס עָצוּר וְעָזוּב:  לז


Deuteronomy 32.36

For The Lord Shall Render Justice for His People, and later He will [out of Kindness] Reconsider his servants, when He Sees the power of [their enemies] surging, and none are structured or fortified.


Notice the Second Word  יָדִין Yaw Deen meaning Judgment or Justice. The root Word is  דִין Deen meaning to Judge. However, we notice that an extra Letter is added to the beginning of The Word  דִין Deen. The Letter י Yod is added to The Word דִין Deen. Why is this? What is the purpose for adding The Letter י Yod? 


The Letter י Yod is One of The Letters in The Holy Name of The Lord. Adding The Letter י Yod brings strength to an already strong Word. The Letter י Yod adds both strength and harmony. Rabbi Michael Munk The Wisdom In The Hebrew Alphabet Mesorah Publications, Brooklyn, N.Y. 1990), p. 131.  The Letter י Yod is the smallest of all The Hebrew Aleph Bet.  The Yod is small like a dot. The Letter י Yod represents the power of creating. The Talmud Relates that The Lord Used The Letters of His Name Yaw י ה to Create this world and the World to come. 'This world was created with The Letter ה Hey and the future world was created with The Letter י Yod.' 


The left leg of The Letter ה Hey is suspended. The left leg is not connected to the rest of The Letter. Notice the opening at the Top of The Letter ה Hey. The opening is an entrance for those desiring to repent. When we sin... When we rebel, it is like we leave the path. The opening in the Letter ה Hey allows us to rejoin The Path. Menachos 29b


Notice The Letter Yod appears Twice Within the First Seven Words of The Torah. The Yod appears in The Word בְּרֵאשִׁית 'In the beginning and The Word הַשָּׁמַיִם The Heavens.' The Yod also appears in The Word צַדִּיק Righteous. We see a common thread. It takes strength to be a righteous person. We are taught that our world exists because of the Lamed-Vav Tzadikim, i.e. Thirty-Six Righteous. Abaye Said: 'The world must contain not less than Thirty-Six Righteous men in each generation who are granted sight of The Shechinah's Countenance. Isaiah Wrote, 'Blessed are all they that לוֹ 'wait' for him. The numerical value of לוֹ 'loh / wait' is Thirty-Six. Sanhedrin 97b and Sukkah 45b.


Bereisheit 1.1

בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ:  ב

We see the י Yod being connected to The Lord, to creating, to The Heavens and to The Righteous. The Heavens are where the Righteous go to reside. It is for this reason the future world was created with the Letter י Yod? It is because there are only a few righteous men in the world to come.


As noted before The Word  דִין Deen has a Second י Yod added for a purpose. The Second י Yod represents extra strength, extra emphasis in Justice and Righteousness. David informs us that 'The Judgments of The Lord are True and Righteous altogether,' Psalms 19.10.


Deuteronomy 32 informs us that the Lord Shall Render Justice for His People. Later, because of His Lovingkindness He will Reconsider His servants, when He Sees the power of [their enemies] surging, and none [of The People of Israel] is structured or fortified. It is then, at The End of Days The Lord God will bring Justice for The Land of Israel and The People of Israel. This is why there is a Second Yod. Justice must be balanced. On Rosh HaShanah, The Lord issues his Judgment. On Yom Kippur, He shows benevolence to His Servants. 


Deuteronomy 32.15 - 26 Speaks of the many failings of The People of Israel. We have a long history of failing The Lord. Each Yom Kippur we keep coming to The Lord with our failings without improving. Our insincere repentance becomes old. We are going through the motions. There is a short period where The Lord God of Israel turns His Face away from His People. This Yud of Justice is represented by The Yud in  דִין Deen. Between Rosh Ha Shanah and Yom Kippur are Ten Days. The Letter Yud is the Gematria of Ten. Moshiach Ben Yoseif comes to lead the armies of Israel. He is defeated and killed. All hope seems gone for The People of Israel. However on Yom Kippur Moshiach Ben David comes after The Lord Brings Justice on the enemies of His People and The Land of Israel. 


Deuteronomy 32.27 begins a Second Yud of Justice.


Our Sages Teach that the Nations of the world plan to exceed reasonable punishment for The People of Israel. The Leaders of these countries will claim they successfully wiped Israel off the face of the earth. The Lord God Will not permit this. The enemy nations will not understand why One from the Army of Israel can no longer pursue a Thousand or why Two from the Army of Israel can no longer pursue and defeat Ten Thousand. They will claim Israel's ruin was do to their strength. If the pursuit were changed, and One Thousand from the Army of Israel were to flee before One of their  enemies, and Ten Thousand of the Army of Israel were to flee before two of their enemies, the conquering nations would not understand! Their success would ONLY do to The Lord God turning away from His People. The enemy nations would not acknowledge God's Hand in their victory. The enemy nations would take all the credit for defeating the armies of Israel. Moses Prophesies, The Lord God Will not permit this to happen. Rabbi Menachem M. Scheerson, Torah Chumash Shemot Kehot Publication Society (Brooklyn, NY 2006) pp 199 - 207


The Prophet Ezekiel 39 Speaks of The Lord's Judgment and destruction of the enemy nations. Seven months will be required to bury all the dead. Seven Years will be required to burn all the weapons.


Ezekiel 39.21 - 29

And I will set My Glory among the nations, and all the nations shall see My Judgment that I Have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.  And The House of Israel shall know that I am The Lord their God from that Day forward. And the nations shall know that The House of Israel went into exile for their iniquity; because they dealt treacherously against me. Therefore, I Hid My Face from them and Gave them to the hand of their enemies; so they all fell by the sword. According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done to them, and I Hid My Face from them. Therefore, Thus Says The Lord God: 'Now will I bring back the exile of Jacob, and Have Mercy upon the entire House of Israel, and Will Be Zealous for My Holy Name. They shall forget their shame, and all their faithlessness in which they have faithless to Me when they dwelt securely in their land, and none made them afraid. After I Have brought them back from the peoples and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and Am Sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; Then shall they know that I Am The Lord their God, Who Caused them to be led into exile among the nations; but I Have Gathered them to their land and have left there none of them any more. And I Will Not Hide My Face any more from them; for I Have Poured Out My Spirit Upon The House of Israel, Says The Lord God.


The prophecy in Joel 4.10 - 21 bares witness of what is to come. In the Christian Bible see Joel 3.10 - 21. Mystically within the Word יָדִין  we Observe a Time of appointment with the Word  יָסַד Yaw Sahd meaning Appoint or Set up. That Time of appointment is when The power of the enemies of Israel begins surging with the intent to wipe Israel off the face of the earth and to annihilate all The People of Israel, God Forbid!! We see the formations for this surging beginning to take shape today, 5776 From Creation,  with Iran and the nations of the world. America is giving money to Iran. What is the purpose for giving money to Iran? The structure and fortification America offered Israel seems to be evaporating!! What is happening here?

Deuteronomy 32.43

Rejoice, O you nations, with his people; for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will make expiation for the land of his people.


Moses prophesies that the Nations will rejoice with Israel after The Lord Renders Justice to the offending countries. This Justice is representative of the Second Yod. The Second Yud represents the Time The Lord Renders Judgment against the offending nations. The World will עֵד witness what The Lord Does to the Nations. And the Nations will join Israel in praising The Lord for His Glorious Works. Moshiach Ben David begins his rule.


The Prophet Isaiah speaks of this time of rejoicing.


Isaiah 2.1 - 5

The Word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. And it will happen in the End of Days, that the mountain of the Temple of The Lord shall be firmly established as the head of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. And many peoples shall go and say, 'Come, and let us go up to The Mountain of The Lord, to The Temple of the God of Jacob; and [Moshiach] will Teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths; for from Zion shall The Torah come forth, and The Word of the Lord from Jerusalem.' And [Moshiach] Shall Judge among the nations, and settle arguments of many people. They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, nor shall they study warfare any more.


Dear Ones the subjects of Jewish exile and return, destruction and exultation, major war defeat and victory and Moshiach establishing peace throughout the world are difficult to understand. I don't pretend to be an expert on The End of Days. No one is. We see little bits and pieces that seem to make sense at the time then it changes. I have offered my opinion based upon what I see. 


I see the war beginning after The Judgment on Rosh HaShanah. The Lord Hides His Face from The People of Israel. War begins. This is at the conclusion of a Shmittah Year. It appears like we, The People of Israel are going to be annihilated. After Yom Kippur The Lord Bring Justice on the enemy nations. Moshiach kingdom begins ruling from Jerusalem. The Third Holy Temple is Established. The People of Israel that were scattered by The Lord God are now Gathered back to Israel by Him.


Some who are living today may see the Great Hand of The Lord in the events discussed in this chapter. We are close to the Time know as The End of Days.


Jeremiah 9.22 - 23

Thus Says The Lord, 'Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, nor let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I Am The Lord Who Exercises Lovingkindness, Justice, and Righteousness, in the earth; for in these things I Delight, Says The Lord.'


So even though we desire to know The End of Days we should even more so desire to understand and know The Lord.
