Historical Tikkun, From Sorrow to Celebration, America-Israel-Iran, Asarah B'Teves 5780, 1/17/2020
On this day on Jewish history, 10 Tevet, Nebuchadnezzar II of Babylon (Iraq) laid siege to Jerusalem. That kingdom overthrown by Persia (Iran). Last time they lost (and we fast to remember). This time we will win.
All of history is a cycle of action and correction. There is no time. Last time it ended with destruction of our Holy Temple (9 Av). When the Messiah comes the 9 of Av is reversed into a national holiday.
All the satanists do, all the time, is reverse good to evil. We say “vanahafoch hu,” in the times preceding the Messiah, this will visibly intensify (Q: “attacks will intensify”)
When Iran was ascendant, the egomaniac Haman, an official of the kingdom, plotted to murder the Jews. This was centuries after the destruction of the Holy Temple. The Jews had already acted to save the kingdom once and they did it again.
Haman was aware that God protected the Jews and so he used a method of divination that he felt exploited a weakness.
His plot involved casting lots (plural of the Persian “pur,” or “lots”) to determine timing, as he felt that specifically choosing a random day might be smarter than trying to pick one. On that day the Jews may not be in God’s favor.
In the end he was a doofus and made the mistake of kneeling too close to the Jewess who had been taken captive by the king for marriage.
Haman is hanged on the gallows he had prepared for the Jew who would not bow down to him.
The king can’t removes the death decree but he allows the Jews to write a new one and the Jews decree they will fight those who plan to kill them.
It is a slaughter.
As with Hanukkah the victory comes from submission and prayer to God and not any essential military advantage.
Now look at President Trump as leader of the American people and Benjamin Netanyahu as leader of the world’s Jewish people.
It is not a direct parallel. But from a Jewish perspective, President Trump is a gentile king who can be swayed for or against the Jews.
He has Jewish blood relatives, and a belief in the Jewish God. He sees the evil plot. He chose to help the Jews.
With Jewish (Israeli) intelligence, the king hanged Soleimani the Iranian terrorist on his own gallows.
He could not eliminate the decree. But he could allow the Jews to write a new one.
Now the Americans are going on to fight. There are no cellphones allowed.
In America and worldwide many have coalesced around the freedom movement known as #QAnon. Today on the English calendar is January 7, 1-7, 17, Q.
17 is the Gematria of God’s Holy Name YKVK. It is also the Gematria of “Tov,” good.
Think good and it will be good.
The Messiah is not just at the door.
He is here, walking among us.
The political Messiah first.
Some might say he is President Trump.
Who is creating world peace from military strength.
Next comes the religious Messiah.
Who unites all people under God.
It is happening. Things are scary right now. But it is happening.
Please pray with me for peace, justice, and an end to terror.
