Rav Moshe Wolfson: Disaster, Geulah May Be Near

14

rav-moshe-wolfsonRav Moshe Wolfson, mashgiach of Yeshiva Torah Vodaas and rov of Bais Medrash Emunas Yisroel in Brooklyn, held an emergency gathering in his community and called upon the members to be strong in Torah and tefillah so that the Jewish people will survive the time of tension with Iran.

Rav Wolfson noted that the Torah sages predicted that Persia, now called Iran, would one day destroy the world, in the times immediately preceding the geulah.

“Chazal say that Persia will destroy the entire world and the Jews will be in a difficult situation,” he said. “Why are we quiet? Where is the awakening? Why is everyone apathetic? Why is everyone busy with silly and unimportant things? Do we not hear the alarm? Do we not know that we must break open the gates of Heaven and ask for mercy from G-d?”

“In the coming weeks we face a total war in Iran, Israel, Europe and the U.S. And the nation of Israel in its entirety must prepare spiritually. The Rambam says that it is a mitzvah to pray in difficult times, and if one does not pray, one is being cruel, and it causes the situation to get worse, G-d forbid.”

Rav Wolfson compared Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Haman, who wanted to kill all of the Jews. If Israel attacks Iran before it achieves nuclear weapons, there will be a world war, he said.

  1. With the way kllal yisroel is divided, who says moshiach will be accepted? He can’t possibly dress and talk like every type of jew. If he dresses like a sefardic jew, will the yeshivish accept him? If he doesn’t talk yiddish with a heimish accent will the chassidim accept him? Im sure u get the gist. Something to think about it. Maybe we should focus on accepting all jews for a change regardless of their yichus or backround.

  2. As i sit here with tears of fear…I tell myself THIS TIME IT’S FOR REAL. The geulah is about to arrive and we should daven that the upcoming quick world war should not have any casualties. Only Miracles but the geulah is about to come. I say this with tears. 5772 years of exile is about to be OVER.

  3. i totally agree

    MATZAV HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I POSTED THIS MESSAGE BELOW from HASHEM?

    of course we are not doing anything. due to many reasons among them

    1)our level of bitachon & emunah is very low Rachmana l’tzlan the only way to arm yourself with protection is to put your life in the hands of Hashem i.e with bitachon & emunah (faith & trust) & then you have no worries of protection for one that seeks out Hashem lacks nothing that is good (tehillim chap. 34)

    2)HUNDREDS OF TRAGEDIES HAVE OCCURED recently-all over the world-& KLAL YISROEL HAS STILL NOT GOTTEN THESE WAKE-UP CALLS FROM HASHEM TO START DOING TESHUVA. thus leaving Hashem no choice
    May all of Klal yisroel start doing teshuva NOW-before tragedy strikes again C”V-& THEN mashiach will come b’karov

    3)are we going to continue watching anti-semitsm grow even in the free country of the USA & just say its coincidence OR is it a message from Hashem for all of klal yisroel to make aliyah NOW towards the geula & mashiach? BEFORE HASHEM NEEDS TO MAKE THINGS WORSE C”V

    4)these events will continue happening R”L due to the lack of achdus in klal yisroel.
    if mashiach is ever to come, klal yisroel needs to be one together on all levels-frum, frei, reform etc…-when we all show hashem we can act as one jewish nation then mashiach can come. UNTIL THEN Hashem waits & our Matriarch rachel cries everyday…

    5)we have a major problem in today’s society (yidden or not) . & its called FACING REALITY.
    whenever tragedy strikes or there’s a big issue, the person blocks it from his face & convinces himself not to apply the message to him,so that we can just continue our fancy & happy lavish life.

    first WE ALL need to admit to ourselves that i have a issue/problem here, then we need to work on solving it. BUT %80 of solving it, is each person admitting to the problems he has.
    MANY MANY OTHER REASONS BUT TOO MANY TO LIST
    HATZLACHA TO EVERYONE & MAY WE ALL START TESHUVA NOW SO WE DON’T NEED ANY MORE TRAGIC REMINDERS C”V

  4. besides for the events mentions in the book of Zecharia Hanavi (the prophet) there is one other message about the future from Hashem

    the latest updated message of Hashem of the future.
    MESSAGE:
    go now to eretz yisroel & go with fortune, wait & soon thousands will be going cause there will be no money left R”L & everyone will say/know the economy is better in Eretz yisroel DON’T WAIT! GO NOW

  5. number 4 you mean well but we aren'”t in galus for that long. The cheshbon is like 1940 years. thats also too long

  6. Comment from Moshiach is Nearing

    /snip/

    5772 years of exile is about to be OVER.

    Erm, 1,942 years actually but who is counting?

  7. To #6 & 7:
    Will you ever listen to the Rabbonim that spoke at the Asifa & stop wasting your time on the internet?! When are YOU going to do Teshuva? Why are you holding the rest of us up? Where is your Achrayus?

  8. #1 – I think about this all the time. We must be collectively kidding ourselves if we think that a Moshiach will be accepted by Am Yisrael (do we even know what that means anymore? Whos in? Whos out>). I sure hope we Pasken like the Shittos that say Moshiach needs to perform open miracles to be confirmed.

    #4,6 – I too hope for Moshiach (Hashem knows its been hard for us Yidden, but you need to calm down and get a little perspective:
    a)Ever since the Mapilim (see the Midrashim), us Jews have been CERTAIN that Moshiach is right around the corner. Unfortunately, we havent been Zoche in all the generations. Yet. Its not for us to think so much about either than to really believe in.

  9. If one of our gedolim feels like this it may be time to get out our “nuclear device”.
    Many gedolim of previous generations have quoted the ZOHAR ha’kadosh that we will go out of this golus BERACHAMIM through THIS SEFER HA’ZOHAR. NOBODY is suggesting for everyone to learn kabbala, however EVERYONE should start a regular seder of reading/learning the Zohar NOW.
    Check out the Chok le’Yisroel for example or check out the website hazohar.net for inspiration

  10. Addendum:
    also check ha-zohar.info

    very interesting website with multiple inspiring suggestions
    and remember:
    k’dai rabbi shimon lismoch alav !!
