Moshiach podcast number 7

So this is the long awaited Moshiach podcast. I had a lot to say, and I didn't even say it all, but the running time is a little over forty five minutes. I don't think you will be bored. We explore what's going on now in light of the Maharsha in Sanhedrin 12A, and we explore the ramifications on the state of current events. There is a lot of food for thought, and I stress (as I did in the podcast), that everything here is conjecture. I do not like guesswork and I do not like making predictions because you look really stupid when the world doesn't end on the day you said it would :)

But, as I said in the podcast, I believe that Hashem is openly showing what is going on right now, and He gave me a strong dose of good intuition, so it is my hope that it will serve you in understanding the broader picture of what is going on right now in the world, and how Hashem is moving the chess pieces into checkmate position.

Here is the seventh edition of the Moshiach podcast.

If there is anyone who would be willing to type it out, it would be a big chesed, as I am sure more people would get the message if it was typed. If you can do it, please contact me at my email address

Running time: 45:17

You say acceptance - as Chazal have said - our Sages - that when Moshiach comes we will bless both good and evil.

Has he come?
Do we bless destruction of our homes? Allotment of land to our enemies? Selling of pork in our holy cities? Yes? We are to accept these things? And when the Edomite soldiers come marching in our borders - also to accept - and also to bless. Why don't we just lie down now and say to every enemy of ours - PLEASE COME AND STEP ALL OVER US - we accept! we bless! Moshiach has come!

Our job is to emulate Hashem, to emulate Yosef, to accept and love no matter what. This doesn't mean that we need to be walked all over. I have compassion on my children and love them no matter what, but I still am firm when they are doing something wrong. Compassion sweetens the din.

"good and evil are the same. All the destruction in the world is good. "

It seems that you are taking a certain truth - that everything emanates from Hashem, and distorting that to equality of polar opposites. Good and evil are not the same. They both serve Hashem's ultimate purpose, which is good - but the are not the same. Even on Purim when we have the potential to reach the highest levels of closeness to Hashem, we get to the point that we can't distinguish "Boruch Mordechai" and "Arrur Hamen" - we never get to the point that we don't distinguish between "Modechai" and "Haman".

Aside from this mistake, there are also truths which while true, the world is not ready to hear. The original breaking of the vessels happened when the vessels were shown a light greater for their capacity to hold - it takes great caution to avoid repeating this mistake.

You should go over this lecture (and other similiar lectures you are considering releasing) with someone knowledgeable in penimius haTorah (esp. Breslov) to clarify what is true, what can be said and how it should be said.

YS, what you are saying is true, and what I am saying is also true. They seem to be a contradiction. The point of learning Kabbalah is to be able to hold greater contradictions at the same time. As the Zohar says, "Not every mind can grasp this." But those who can, must. This is the joke of אז ימלא שחוק פינו. This is the secret of Yosef and his brothers. The evil is really good. Evil is actually a higher good, as per the statement of Chazal that when Hashem said טוב מאד, it referred to the yetzer Hara. This is something I don't expect everyone to get, and that is fine. Those who get it will laugh now. Those who don't will laugh later.

YS said...

I think it's a subtle point - but I don't think you are correct here. Because the yetzer haRa is tov meod is not the same as saying that evil and good are the same.

The Tree in the middle of the Gan was the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Daas is the level of connection of two oposites. The man knew his wife (man-woman). The Beis HaMikdash represents daas (shamayim-aretz)- you don't need "Daas" to connect things which are the same. That being said, there obvious is a very high connection that exists between the two, which the tree represented. Had he waited until Shabbos, he would have been allow to eat. When our Shabbos comes, we'll be allow to absorb this truth, but we're not in Shabbos. That was Adam's mistake - acting as if it was Shabbos before it was.

Have you spoke to anyone truly knowledgeable in this area (not other sparks of MBY)? It doesn't sound like anything I've learned and I would be interested in knowing that any other Rav supports such statements.

YS said...

I thought of another way to explain it - God want to give us give the ultimate good. This is only possible if we have free choice which is only possible in a world where evil is possible. By struggling against the evil, we acquire the true good for ourselves. So the fact that there is evil in the world is good, even "very good". It's still not the "same" as good. If you could go so far to say that evil is good (which I wouldn't openly say due to the ease of misunderstanding) that good is only a secondary good. "good" is primary and "evil" could only be considered good by the fact that it allows me to acquire the ultimate good. But I would never ever say that they are the "same" - because they are not.

Ari Goldwag said...

The difference between טוב and רע is an illusion. They are essentially two parts of a greater whole. This perception that we have is why we make two different brachos for good and bad news. But that is because of our mistaken perception, not because they are really different. As long as we maintain our mistaken perception, we can not bring them back into a greater unity, because we create resistance within ourselves. It would take me an hour in a conversation with you to explain this to your satisfaction. It would take a lot of deep thought and contemplation on your part to see what I am saying here. It has taken me years to understand this deeply. This Torah is coming into the world now, because we are so close to the time when it will be apparent to all. Hashem is revealing this to certain individuals, and I am not the only one saying this Torah. There are multiple great personalities that are getting this, too. You are probably not familiar with their names, but suffice it to say that this is not my own Torah.

Ari i understand your trying to do tikkun by calling tov vrah the same but that is perur .For rah there is destruction for tov there is chaim . Whoever it is jew or gentile male or female , that is the dynamic of the tikkun of yesod not that chasfer shalom tov and rah are equal !Regretably the founder of xtianity had this concept and much of the west has adopted it tov and rah are equal ! this is why achminidjav who hangs his countries homosexuals wants to nuke tel avive and america ! For he believes islams monotheism is superior to the wests hedonism / man god and Israels connection to Hashem ! As for the 85 % of jews who are not studying torah how can you say mashiach will redeem them in unconditional love ? That sounds like jc's whole approach abrogating the mitzvahs for unconditional love and the ways of todays "healing new age arts ". My final point all souls today are from the tree of knowledge theres good in that tree and bad man all man and woman have a choice to a large extent . They choose homosexuality or anti semitism or marry gentiles and serve idolatry they made there choice no one will save them not jc not mby not god !
