Latest word from Israel from Kol Ha Tor Director, Ovadyah Avrahami:
“This is 2nd in a series of Blessings observed in Israel since Pesach. Is this the year of Blessing; the start of the Blessings foretold by HaShem for the Time of gathering in the nation?
Surely this places His Nation under obligation for reciprocal Thanksgiving Teshuvah ('turn around') especially in this time when our rulers are NOT tuned in on the Will of HaShem, but rather on the will of Obama and the nations for Israel - even for the interest of our enemies? In this respect, Jews are great exemplary executors of the NT "turn the other cheek" (which Judaism does NOT interpret in Christian terms). Whatever the case - the Blessings are coming!
Since Independence Day from last Monday, April 15 to Shabbat on April 20, 2013 we have had untimely rains, more than the average summer volume for a week! In fact, we are back on our full winter clothing after summer had been breaking around Pesach time!
I remember well in the 80’s, when we first came to Israel on Aliyah. Summer would beat down relentlessly for 8 months a year without a cloud in the sky. The seasonal change over at end summer and end winter would take no longer than on e week. Over the last few years we have noted a definite change in all these weather patterns. Now abundant summer rains after Independence day and back to winter.
This is time for Thanksgiving - and 10-Israel should join with Judah in this celebration. HaShem's favor cannot be bought by our 'righteousness' - but, we surely could stand guilty of throwing His Kindness and Blessings back in His Face, or for taking it simply as for granted, leaving His Interest to find its own success.”
May His nation and people and all mankind
May His people help tirelessly to build His Kingdom!
Destination Yisrael - During this weekend, the storms and rains did wonders for the Sea of Galilee as she continued to inch upwards from the water tables of the once “black line” and now standing at 212.12 meters upwards of 35 millimeters in one week. Reported storm, hail and strong winds also caused significant damage upwards to NIS 35 million of damage to fields of produce, that include avocados, citrus, fruits and vegetables, field crops and ornamental plants plus hail damage that also did extensive damage to numerous outdoor nurseries. These figures came from KANAT, the insurance for natural damages in agriculture according to survey in 400 different points of crop damages.
Between the dates of February 23 to March 4, 2013, the Mountain of Israel in Shomron and Judea garnered the largest gains in water between 150 to 200 centimeters of water, plus another 130-160 millimeters of rain water in Galilee and the Golan Heights region to the northeast.
It was on January 13, 2013 that Destination Yisrael posted its latest blog on the “Latter Rain” titled, “Are We Preparing to Witness a New Garden of Eden as The “Latter Rain” and Snow Cascades down upon the Land of Israel”. This blog was concerning the amazing beginnings of the rainfall in Israel and the divine blessings of abundance of rain since Rosh Hashanah 2012. The Sea of Galilee (Lake Kinneret) began to rise to the highest level in a decade.
It appeared that the final divine blessing of the “Latter Rain” may now be upon us, and will be exemplified in a complete climate change in the Land of Israel. What we may be witnessing is the prophetic fact that the Land of Israel and throughout the regions of the future Greater Israel will again become a “Land flowing with Milk and Honey”, not just by Jewish agricultural ingenuity but by the direct blessings that Israel will be tectonically moved into a new latitude and longitude and soon become again a tropical paradise. This fact dovetails with the prophetic end time messages of Joel and Zechariah:
Joel 2:23 – “Be glad then ye children of Zion and rejoice in the Lord your God: for He hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month” [Thus Nissan and the beginning of Pesach (Passover) season].
Zechariah 10:1 – Ask the Lord for Rain in the time of the Latter Rain. The Lord will make flashing clouds; He will give them Showers of Rain, Grass in the Field for Everyone.
And then we must take another look at the famous prophecy of the Last Seven Years before the Coming of the Messiah by the famous Prophecy of Rabbi Yochanan ben Zaccai of Yavnah after the city of Jerusalem and the Holy Temple were destroyed in 70 CE:
Sanhedrin 97a – “Rebi Yochanan ben Zaccai of Yavnah said: In the generation that Ben Dovid will come, talmidei chachamim, the “pupil of wisdom” known as the Torah sage or scholar, will decrease, and the eyes of the remainder will protrude from sighing and sorrow; many chastisements and many evil decrees will be renewed; one will not cease before another begins.”
Today we can begin to perceive the unfolding drama of the last few years before the coming of the Messiah son of David (Maschiah ben Dovid). Now that we know when the fifty year Jubilee Cycles will end, it now appears that the new Messianic Age will begin in the year of 2017; according to the 13th century prophecy by “Rabbi Judah ben Samuel of the last 10 Jubilees before the revealing of the Messiah”.
Rabbi Judah ben Samuel - “When the Ottomans (Turks) – who were already a power to be reckoned with on the Bosporus in the time of Judah Ben Samuel – conquer Jerusalem they will rule over Jerusalem for eight jubilees. Afterwards Jerusalem will become no-man’s land for one jubilee, and then in the ninth jubilee it will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation – which would signify the beginning of the Messianic end time.”Then we complete the Prophecy of Rabbi Judah ben Zaccai of Yavneh of the last Seven Years before the coming of the Messiah as we read these words:
- In the first year (2009 starting with Rosh Hashanah 2008), the following prophecy in Amos 4:7 will be fulfilled “I caused it to rain on one city, but, on another city, I did not cause it to rain.
- In the second year (2010, starting with Rosh Hashanah 2009), there will be a “slight famine” in which according to Rashi, “no place will be completely satisfied”.
- In the third year (2011 starting with Rosh Hashanah 2010), “famine will be great, and men, women, children, pious people, and men of good deeds will die; Torah will be forgotten by those who learned it.”
- In the fourth year (2012, starting with Rosh Hashanah 2011), “some will be satiated while others are not.”
- In the fifth year (2013, starting with Rosh Hashanah 2012), there will be plenty and people will eat, drink, and be joyous, and the Torah will return to those who learned it.”
- In the sixth year (2014, starting with Rosh Hashanah 2013), there will be voices which according to Rashi depict either the blowing of the shofars (war) or the hints and voices about the coming of the messiah.
- In the seventh year (2015, starting with Rosh Hashanah 2014), there will be war.”
The eighth year will be the Year of the Messiah when it will be expected that he will be fully revealed by the G-d of Israel in the year beginning with Rosh Hashanah 2015 and Planet Earth’s calendar year of 2016. The inaugural reign of King Messiah will begin as all the kings of Israel in the next year when the Jubilee Year ends on Rosh Hashanah 2016. Will we enter the new era of the Messiah in the Jewish Year 5777 (5000 + 777) or the Planet Earth’s calendar year of 2017?
To the Jews of the Land of Israel, by Rosh Hashanah, you will be fully in perception that the G-d of Israel is holding out His hand of mercy to you and the Land of Israel. At that time we will then see the fulfillment of the prophetic promise of Ezekiel given to him by the G-d of Israel (Ezekiel 36) to be given to the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel; the land of Israel will be restored to Gan Eden, the restoration of the Garden of Eden.
Also at the time will be the great ingathering of “All Israel”; the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel plus the ingathering of all the Jews of the diaspora. Hundreds of millions of Lost Israelites will be returned to the “land of their forefathers and return in love and fellowship with their brothers the Jews of the House of Israel.
Ezekiel 36:22-23, 24-28 (parts); 33- - “Therefore, tell the house of Isra’el that Adonai Elohim (L-rd G’d) says this: I am not going to do this for your sake, house of Isra’el, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have been profaning among the nations where you went. I will set apart my great name to be regarded as holy, since it has been profaned in the nations – you profaned it among them. They will know that I am Adonai,’ says Adonai Elohim, ‘when, before their eyes, I am set apart through you to be regarded as holy.
For I will take you from among the nations, gather you from all countries, and return you to your own soil. Then I will sprinkle clean water upon you…I will cleanse you from your uncleanliness…I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit inside your…You will live in the land I gave to your ancestors. You will be my people, and I will be your G-d…
When the day comes for me to cleanse you from all your guilt, I will cause cities to be inhabited and the ruins to be rebuilt. The land that was desolate will be tilled, whereas formerly it lay desolate for all passing by to see. They will say, ‘the land that used to be desolate has become like Gan Eden (Garden of Eden)…Then the nations around that remain will know that I, Adonai, have rebuilt the ruins and replanted what was abandoned. I, Adonai, have spoke; and I will do it!”
If that fact does not make your heart palpitate, will anything else?
The G-d of Israel is working with imperfect people in order to restore this planet to a messianic era in which our lives can be focused on holiness, righteousness and justice. If so, you might desire to reconnect with the Biblical portrayals of what is and will be happening in your near future.
This Biblical portrayal includes Prophecies that the Lost Tribes of the House of Israel are about to return to the Land of their Biblical Inheritance. This is Divine Destiny in living reality as the 10 Lost Tribes of Israel return to their Homelands first in Shomron (Samaria), Israel.
If you want to learn more, Contact “Kol Ha Tor Vision”, the Voice of the Turtledove. Here is a joint Orthodox Jewish and 10-Triber Mission to bring awareness of the imminent fulfillment of the Biblical Prophecies regarding the Redemption of all Israel (12 Tribes Re-conciled and Re-United). This super Event of all Times will entail Establishing the Shomron (the Ancient Bible Heartland of the Patriarchs) and the Judean Wilderness as part of the Land of Israel, and preparing the “Land” for the Return of the Lost Tribes of the House of Israel and then the Redemption of All Israel.
