The Jews of Montana

The world is in conflict and chaos. Racial tensions are soaring in American cities and our government appears poised to lock down America with Jade Helm.  Bad News.

The good news is that HaShem (literally “The Name”), the epithet Jews use for God, is working in the world to bring about redemption for his people. In the last 20 years or so, the Spirit of Holiness has open up the hearts and minds of numerous people and people groups. In the Last generation we have seen the restoration of the nation of Israel and millions of scattered tribes of Israel return to their ancient homeland. Jews from the House of Judah and various persons and groups from both the House of Judah and the House of Israel have been awakened in these Last Days to who they are. It has happen to many people I know including my own family.  God is working in the world amid the death, destruction and evil that is all to commonplace. The following article is from Aish.com regarding the Jews of Montana.

Netanyahu Calls for Jews to Immigrate to Israel

A steady stream of Jewish people have returned to their ancestral homeland since the beginning of the 20th century. But more still need to return. The times we are living in a the days of Prophecy for the fulfillment of the Redemption of Israel and those who battle along side her.But these days begin in darkness with evil trying to overcome light and hope. Following the shooting dead of a Danish Jew outside a Copenhagen synagogue on Sunday, the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has urged European Jews to immigrate to Israel.

Netanyahu announced the government will discuss Sunday a $46 million plan to encourage Jewish migration from Belgium, France and Ukraine and said at the start of a cabinet meeting that Israel is the home of all Jews.

“Extremist Islamic terrorism has struck Europe again… Jews have been murdered again on European soil only because they were Jews,”…”Israel is your home. We are preparing and calling for the absorption of mass immigration from Europe,” and Jews wherever they may be: ‘Israel is the home of every Jew… Israel awaits you with open arms,” he said.

“Europe is waking up to a new era, a new reality, to which we in Israel and around the Jewish world have been pointing out for the last 10 years. We are witnessing a rise of anti-Semitic attacks and expressions,” expert on anti-Semitism from the World Zionist organization Eitan Uri Bakhar told RT.

At the annual Taglit-Birthright ‘Mega Event’ in Israel, Netanyahu asked thousands of participants to hold a minute of silence for the victims of the attacks at the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, in which 12 people were killed, and later at a kosher supermarket in the French capital in which four Jewish men were murdered, among them Yoav Hattab. The young Tunisian Jew had visited Israel with Birthright, the program that brings Jewish 18-to-26-year-olds on free 10-day trips, just a few short weeks ago.

“Tonight, I call on all of you, and on all young Jews around the world: Come to Israel, Make aliya. This is your country. This is your birthright,” the prime minister urged.

11  And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time, to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. 12  And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. (Yeshayahu 11:11-12)

 

 

 

 

 

Prophecy Alert: Members of Lost Tribe of Menashe Visit Western Wall for First Time

shavei-bnei-menashe-31One of the 10 Lost Tribes of Israel, the members of Bnei Menashe have waited 2,700 years to visit the Western Wall for the first time. Recently arrived from India, seeing them come before the Western Wall is watching Biblical prophecy being fulfilled!

In December 2013, under the auspices of the Israel Returns organization, the Israeli launched Operation Menashe. The project opened the gates of aliyah to the Jewish Indian tribe of Bnei Menashe and has allowed them to return home to Israel.

The Bnei Menashe are the descendants of the tribe of Manasseh, one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel exiled by the Assyrian empire in 722 BCE, toward the end of the First Temple era. Over the last two years, more than 3,000 Bnei Menashe now call Israel home.

God Intervenes for Israel against Hamas

“Their God changes the path of our rockets in mid-air, said a terrorist,” was the headline in the July 18 edition of the Jewish Telegraph.

Claims of divine intervention are being reported in the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, with an operator of Israel’s Iron Dome missile-defense system saying he personally witnessed “the hand of God” diverting an incoming rocket out of harm’s way….Iron Dome (which calculates wind speeds, among other things) shows a major wind coming from the east, a strong wind that … sends the missile into the sea. We were all stunned. I stood up and shouted, ‘There is a God!’

“I witnessed this miracle with my own eyes. It was not told or reported to me. I saw the hand of God send that missile into the sea.”

Daniel the Visionary of Israel – Part 4

Daniel Chapter Two Vision

King Nebudchadnezzar’s statue, revealed to Daniel in a dream is the very first revelation of the entire span of human history and government. Rabbi Moshe Alshich, (1508-1600) student of Rabbi Yosef Caro and immanent teacher of Rabbi Chaim Vital, taught that the 60 cubit statute that Nebudchadnezzar made refers to the primary epochs of human history, ending with the Kingdom of HaShem. He said that in Nebuchadnezzars dream, the history of man was divided into four periods, each represented by a section of the image, being composed of different material.  And because the fourth kingdom was composed of two substances, iron and earthenware (clay), it represented a total of five kingdoms, which would be followed by a sixth kingdom – the government of HaShem.

The kingdoms in Daniels visions including the dream image of Nebuchadnezzar, are all with us today though they generally have different names.  Babylon is today’s Iraq, Persia is now called Iran. The Roman empire is broken up into the European Union and Greece comprises the nation of Greece and the Balkan States. The territory of the ancient empires of Babylon and Medo-Persia  now comprise of a majority of what can described as the Islamic Block, stretching from India to Africa. Greece and Rome comprise what is nominally known as the Christian West.

Christian authors have been instrumental in raising awareness of the Time of the Kietz or End. Though they seldom utilize the Hebrew term, more well known terms such as the Tribulation, the Last Days, End of Days, the Time of Jacob’s Trouble, and the like have become more of household terms because of the Christian culture. As a Jew I am thankful of their contribution in spreading knowledge of HaShem and the End of Days prophecies which will bring about the Kingdom of HaShem under Davidic governance.

However, with that said, how Jews see concepts such as the End of Days and the Kingdom of HaShem, differ considerably than the theology of our Christian friends. For instance, the term Kingdom of God in Christian tradition and theology concerns itself with a time when God rules the world under the grace of their saviour Jesus, with the Church being the administrators of his will and law. This kingdom concept is of course is nowhere to be found in the Tanakh.

Before we dive into the human governments outlined in Daniel, I believe it to be extremely important to understand God’s government, not necessarily His universal rule over all of Creation, but specifically His kingdom on earth known in the Book of Daniel as The One Stone.

The Visions of Daniel

There is no mystery more shrouded than the time of the קֵץ, or End – referring to the End of Days.  This special time is marked by the arrival of a wicked ruler which is followed by the arrival of the King Messiah, a messianic Israeli leader who will help usher in an era of peace and justice.

A passage from Megillah 3a tells us that within the Ketuvim (writings) the Kietz or End is contained, meaning the time when the Messiah was to come who would lead Israel to it’s final redemtion. The Book of Daniel is part of that biblical collection. The closing chapters of Daniel contain the visions of the ‘Kietz’, but Daniel was instructed by the angel Gabriel to conceal them from human understanding.  Jewish tradition tells us that Yonathan ben Uziel, most brilliant of Hillels disciples, revealed the mysteries of the prophets in what we know as the Targums, but when he desired to reveal the secrets of the Writings, a heavenly voiced forbid it, because the secret of the End is contained there.

A kietz or end is a point in time where the culmination of God’s plan is brought about leading to a redemption or to the final redemption.  Due to the numerous well-meaning and some not so well meaning scholars who have tried to interpret the exact time when the Messiah was to be revealed,  and the numerous disappointments and tragedies that resulted from these incorrect datings, the sages hoping to discourage anyone from trying to determine the date, pronounced a curse upon those who would try. One only need look at the messianic aspirations of the Great Revolt which spawned numerous messianic pretenders and resulted in the deaths of over one million Jews.

Nevertheless, some very prominent rabbi’s have made calculations of the Kietz – R’ Saadia Gaon, Rambam and Ramban.  These however are noteworthy in that these calculations were allowed in Jewish communities that were under going intense persecution and forced conversions – such as the Jews of Yemen who were beset by a government who demanded conversion to Islam who sought advice from Rabbi Moshe Maimon.  The Jews of Catholic Spain were also under duress to convert.

In these cases, these Jewish communities were in dire need of hope and encouragement and the study of the End was particularly uplifing because it foretold of the demise of Israel’s enemies and the re-establishment of the Davidic Kingdom.  In fact one of the prominent features of the Apocalyptic genre, of which the Book of Daniel is archetypical, was to give comfort to a persecuted people.
Daniels visions are part of the apocalyptic tradition and in reality its foundational document. During his days, the Jewish people needed encouragement that God had not abandoned them and that he was working on thier behalf to bring about thier redemption.

In the realm of the Final Redemption, two possibilities exist. One, that the guelah (redemption) will occur through Israel’s meritorious deeds.  And two, that the guelah will come at ‘its appointed time’ if Israels does not merit it by good deeds.

It should be understood that the sages cautioned that no man knows the time of the End.  The End is hidden.  But  within Daniel lies the knowledge to know how to recognize the signs that indicate when the Kietz – The End of Days is drawing near.  It is these signs that we will look at to help us determine if indeed we are in the time of the End.
