The Rebbe’s 1980 Striking Prophecy on Gog & Magog, and Moshiach

The Rebbe MH”M speaking on Pesach Sheini תש׳מ, explains a passage of our sages - where they assess - from King David’s prophecies the Jewish prospects during the final world war, that of Gog and Magog. Despite the conceived threat this war might pose on the Jewish people (as expressed in Tractate Sanhedrin and many other places), this particular expose of King David's prophecy to the contrary is particularly timely today, when horrible human tragedy plagues the Muslim Middle-East and a war-mongering Iran ominously approaches nuclear potential.

In Psalm 2, King David relates the pain he felt when his own son rebelled against his sovereignty. On the other hand, in Psalm 3, when King David alludes to the final world war, that of Gog and Magog, he omits all reference to pain. Why is that? The answer is - because no conceived harm to the Jewish people was warranted!

Our sages teach us, as the Rebbe explains, that this war cannot violate Jewish life; The Jewish people will be completely immune against any of this war's repercussions. As for those who decry that Jewish lives will be at stake - he says why those concerns are “for naught” (Psalm 2:1).

The nations will be in turmoil, accusations will surely target Jewish scapegoats, but the Rebbe emphasizes over and over that, despite the agitation Gentiles will to bring upon the Jews, in actuality it ought not provoke Jewish concern because all concern over this issue illusory.

The Rebbe shows how God mocks such a perspective; And why? Because, “He Who dwells in Heaven has enjoyment from it; the Lord mocks them.” (Psalm 2:4)

[They are a mockery, are they not?]

God’s “I will incite Egyptians against Egyptians” has nothing to do with Jews. [It has to do only with how the rest of the verse reveals, ונלחמו איש באחיו ואיש ברעהו עיר בעיר ממלכה בממלכה, "... and brother will smite his brother, man will smite his friend, city will fight another city and one kingdom will fight against another." Do we not see exactly this happening presently?]

This thing about Afghanistan, or about something elsewhere or wherever, and this other opinion of x and that opinion of y, ... all of it is wasted breath, all these details are trivial because they ought not concern us - because they can't touch us (!), says the Rebbe.

All this is happening not because Jews have any superior strength or intellect, but simply because “He Who dwells in Heaven has enjoyment from it.”

Take note how the Rebbe explains the term "around", מסביב, in that the worldly-related events taking place, as often cited, are "around Jerusalem".  Around indeed says the Rebbe, meaning to imply only around but NOT within! The war will not touch Jerusalem; Around Jerusalem, yes, but not IN Jerusalem.

Then too take special note and listen how the Rebbe suddenly injects the teaching that Redemption will happen in the the post-Shmittah year, in which Moshiach will finally reveal himself.

Just Launched - toraware.com

Although it's always in development, ... real pleased to announce ... new website just launched.

It’s got GEMATRIA (and other “fun stuff”) methods by which to search Torah, made real simple to use. It's also a "Concordance" where you can very quickly find your word. Every search method has its own set of applicable options.

On the home page the user can set the range of scripture to search through, and he can also set a limit as the maximum number of results he wants to find.

The program as of now is well enough to be up and running.

If you find something remarkable, do tell the world about it.
