I wanted to help you complete the picture from the perspective of Emunah. We have been Crowning HaShem as King of the Universe every Rosh HaShanah since Sinai with blasts of the Shofar. The three final p'sukim in Musaph Rosh HaShanah dealing with the blasts of the Shofar (Shofarot) provide the key to the Final Redemption, the three blasts of the Shofar in Nevua for the Acharit HaYamim. The Third blast, the Stormwinds of Teiman (Yemen) has JUST OCCURRED! This is a post on my blog from almost precisely two years ago. I should point out that the missile from Yemen last Saturday night took place on the 16th of MarCheshvan, the Day before G-d Judged the entire world at the time of the Great Flood.

HaShem has been setting up Chess pieces for quite a while. There has now been a Hurricane in Teiman on Tuesday for the first time ever. It is the last Shofar blast of the trilogy of shofar blasts at the end of Days. Look at Musaph Rosh HaShanah for the last three pasukim mentioned by the Nevi'im dealing with Blowing the Shofar to set the stage for the advent of Mashiach:.

And through Your servants, the Prophets, the following is written:

1. כָּל-יֹשְׁבֵי תֵבֵל, וְשֹׁכְנֵי אָרֶץ, כִּנְשֹׂא-נֵס הָרִים תִּרְאוּ, וְכִתְקֹעַ שׁוֹפָר תִּשְׁמָעוּ.
(Yishayahu 18:3) All the inhabitants of the earth and dwellers on the land, You will see like the raising of a flag (the Israeli flag) in the mountains, and like the blast of a Shofar you will hear.

This was the founding of the State of Israel in 5708. That was the first shofar blast. It was "Like" the blast of a shofar because the State of Israel was founded by the Erev Rav. The Erev Rav has provided a cocoon for Torah Judaism to grow and thrive without bringing on the wrath of the nations of the world that they would send troops to destroy the upstart State. So the Modern State by virtue of the fact that it behaves like the Western nations of the world, has fooled the Satan to allow nourishment for the future Messianic State while functioning at the level of statecraft like a Western country. So its founding was LIKE the blast of a Shofar.

2. וְהָיָה בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, יִתָּקַע בְּשׁוֹפָר גָּדוֹל, וּבָאוּ הָאֹבְדִים בְּאֶרֶץ אַשּׁוּר, וְהַנִּדָּחִים בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם; וְהִשְׁתַּחֲווּ לַיהוָה בְּהַר הַקֹּדֶשׁ, בִּירוּשָׁלִָם.

(Yishayahu 27:13) And it will be on that very day, a Great Shofar Blast will be blown, and the Lost ones (Russian Jews) in/from the Land of Ashur, and Castaways (Ethiopian Jews) in/from the Land of Egypt will come and bow before HaShem at His Holy Mountain in Yerushalayim.

This was the famous incident of the Ingathering of the Exiles that the Vilna Gaon spoke about for the years 5750 and 5751 because those years marked the 3/4 mark of the 6th millennium as if they were three quarters of the way through the 6th day of the week. At High Noon on Yom Shishi, shofar blowers would ascend the mountains of Israel to blow the shofar to call Israel in from her fields to prepare for Shabbat. So it would be the case 3/4 of the way through the 6th millennium. The davening at His Holy Mountain has not yet occurred.....yet, but the ingathering surely picked up speed in those two fateful years. Russian Jewry was a lost Jewry who lost its connection to Judaism while Ethiopian Jewry survived isolated in Ethiopia as a castaway nation when porters from the sacking of Mitzraim by Assyria were no longer needed by the Assyrian Army. So the porters from the Shevatim of Dan, Naftali, and Asher wandered down to Ethiopia to join the Queen of Sheba's existing Jewish country from 300 years prior. They survived beyond the River Sanbat, the tributary to the Nile River known by the gentiles as the Blue Nile whose source is from Lake Gondar in Gondar Province in Ethiopia. The bulk of the Ethiopian community that came during Op. Shlomo and Sheba were redeemed on Shabbat, the one day per week when the waters of the Sanbat River were placid.

Finally, the last Shofar blast in the trio of prophetic shofar blasts heralding the coming of Mashiach

3. וַיהוָה עֲלֵיהֶם יֵרָאֶה, וְיָצָא כַבָּרָק חִצּוֹ; וַאדֹנָי יְהוִה בַּשּׁוֹפָר יִתְקָע, וְהָלַךְ בְּסַעֲרוֹת תֵּימָן

(Zecharia 9:14) And HaShem was seen above them, and His arrow will go forth like lightning. And the L-rd G-d will blow the Shofar, and go forth in the stormwinds of Teiman. As if it were on cue suddenly, the news comes out:

This is the third and final shofar blast of the Final Redemption..... The Stormwinds of Yemen. This is why the last war had to begin in Yemen.

Dov BarLeib


To Dov: Ashur is Russia? Nope that is incorrect. It is universally understood as a Iraqi area nation.
Castaways are Ethiopian? What proof do you have to claim this?
I think we are in the end days but the process could take...years? We've been hearing these sort of things for many years and they've all been false.
Remember the George "gog" bush nonsense?
Recall how olmert was to be the last pm?
Obama was gonna attack?
Let's all focused on our deeds and cheeses and stop predicting that scenes mean "this it it".

Tiny little detail one could add; Iran's leverage reaches beyond the Afghanistan border since there is a significant Pharsi speaking minority in southern Afghanistan. Happen to know that when there is no Afghan embassy in a country, such a Pharsi speaking person falls under the authority of Iran's embassy. But it is more important to have the lucrative heroine smuggling in mind via this border, when one is thinking about giving a complete picture of Iran's leverage in the world.


"Awesome" is the only word that comes to mind!

Thanks so much for clarifying the meaning of current events and most importantly, for providing guidance about what we need to do in these confusing times.


Mister: Ethiopian Jewish Oral history tells us that Senchariv's forces "cast away" the Israelite porters that the Assyrian Army no longer needed from the Shevatim of Dan, Naftali, and Asher. Once the forces of the Assyrian Army sacked Memphis in Mitzraim, they '"cast away" their Jewish porter slaves south of the areas conquered in Mitzraim.

I would agree with you that these things take years sometimes, but the Medrash says "In the year that Mashiach comes". The quickening nature of these events at least points to the possibility that the Last Great War will explode this year as the Medrash says. I heard this exact same medrash was in the Yalkut Shimoni. Rav Brody found this same medrash somewhere else. Other than what the medrash itself says, no one here is giving an exact time frame. The fact is though, it has begun.

Togarmah, the Turks, had ten sons. One of them was the Khazars. The lost Assyrian Jews were absorbed by the Khazars who migrated northward between the Black and Caspian Seas. They founded their own little empire and kept the Russians and the Muslims at bay for over 500 years. In the 8th Century, the Khazar ruling household was convinced by the arguments of Rav Yehudah Almengari, and they all converted to Judaism. The absorbed Assyrian Jews all reconverted back to Judaism after being lost for 1300 years. Upon being destroyed around the year 1240ce., the Kuzari Jews migrated northward into the Ukraine where they merged their communities with Ashkenazic Jews migrating into the Pale of Settlement from the West. So yes, in part Russian Jews have the historic lines of the Jews from the Northern Kingdom that Yishayahu 27 was prophesying about.


Plus, Mister:

George Bushes Jr. and Sr. were Gog. We really don't need more Gogs. They have come and gone.
Ehud Olmert was the last leader of the Erev Rav before Mashiach comes as the Medrash Sefer Eliyahu says he would be. Netanyahu as weak as he is, is not from the Erev Rav.
And I never agreed with other bloggers that Obama would attack with troops. But he DID attack diplomatically with the 70 nations at the very end of his term in the UN Sec Council.


I am sorry but I disagree completely
To say bush Jr was gig and also his father is based upon...?
As to Obama, a little hakarot hatov. He ordered his diplomats to boycott Durban 1 and 2.
He also supported kipat barzel with funding
Obama also agreed to raise the aid (even though Israel doesn't need money, our per capital income is quite high and the treasury has 130 billion USD in forex) to 3.8b a year.
I don't believe Obama was bad, he didn't get along with Bibi that's it.


One other item dov. How can you know let alone call olmert erwv Rav? On what facts do you base this? We do not know who is what. Even the "opely pious" may not be. On the other hand, we often under estimate others. Perhaps they have great deeds of Cheesed? My point is you have no evidence about who is erwv Rav and I recall tons of people claiming olmert was the last PM which was clearly wrong. Again, the Geula is approaching but we cannot know when. I've had it with predictions which have been totally wrong it doesn't benefit anyone. Let's concentrate on self improvement and chesses and hope the Geula will be here.


@Mister makes a cogent point.

What a shame to spend the last bit of time before the geula shleimah with predictions of who is/isn't Gog, and judgments of who is/isn't the Eruv Rav.

Instead, let's focus on strengthening emunah, Torah study, and gemilut chassidim. That was the point of the shiur - preparation in the time left.


Thank you Yehudit. What a great way of articulately expressing the point.


Olmert beat holy Jews into submission with rounds of applause from leftists who want to be loved by the world especially in urban centers in the EU and in the US State Dept. The bloody skulls from the first Amona expulsion are now in the history books of our people. He has never apologized or regretted his actions. Olmert personally wrote the Kach Law which banned Rav Meir Kahane zt"l from ever running for a seat in the Knesset. The law was written in time for the 1988 Knesset elections. Two years later this towering giant of Torah and Jewish pride was dead from an assassins bullet. He may have been the Mashaich ben Yosef of the previous generation since Malkhut Yosef unlike Malkhut Yehudah can be matrilinear. One can make the argument that OLMeRT is ARMiLuS. Look at the consonants and juxtapose them, who in a legal sense murdered Mashiach ben Yosef at the Western Gate of Yerushalayim by banning him from running in Knesset elections at a time when Kahane was a political force to be reckoned with. And finally from the Medrash Sefer Eliyahu itself, we learn of the name of the last leader in Israel who represents the power of Rome in Yerushalayim. The name given is TRMLO, which is Olmert backwards since Edomite languages are written left to right as opposed to Hebrew which is written right to left. The name is spelled out Tav Reish Mem Lamed Aleph! That is Olmert backwards. Eliyahu received this prophesy when sleeping under an rotem tree while he was running away from Jezebel who wanted to kill him after he was victorious over the Priests and Priestesses of Ba'al and Ashtarot. He was awakened twice by Michael the Malach Sharet and was given the eschatology for the end of days. This is what it says:

Then Michael said to me (Eliyahu), �The appointed time for the End of Days will occur during the reign of a king who will be named Hrmlt. There are some that say that (Tav Reish Mem Lamed Aleph) will be his name.� R. Simai says Hk�rt will be his name. R. Eleazar says Artaxerxes will be his name. R. Judah b. Betira says Cyrus will be his name. R. �im�ōn b. Yo�ai says Khusrau will be his name. The halakhah in this case follows R. �im�ōn who said �Khusrau� will be his name.

The last king who rules Persia shall come up against the Western Romans three successive years until he expands (his gains) against them for twelve months. Three mighty warriors will come up to oppose him from the West(the Western World), but they will be handed over into his control. Then the lowliest of the kings, the son of a slave woman and whose name is Gīgīt (Lebanese Druze king to be Taymour Jumblatt whose mother was a Circasian Xtian slave named Gigi short for Gervette), will confront him (the last king of Persia) from the west.

Now I am not going to be bullied into thinking that none of this matters. Of course it matters! And I think I made myself clear that I am not giving dates even if the Medrash above does give dates. Those are the medrash's words about this coming war, not mine. What we don't know of course is what is the first year that Persia has confronted the West in this process? Was it the year when they captured the American submarine and forced to crew to confess to crimes against Iran? That was two years ago? I will look it up.
