Will Moshiach Do My Job?    

Will Moshiach Do My Job?

"You shall demolish their altars and smash their monuments…and burn their graven images". Hashem said, "You do this!" He didn’t say, "Wait for Moshiach to come and do it".


I am concerned about Jews in America. They just will not listen.  When I tell people what is coming the "wise ones" just smile tolerantly behind their hand at my utter foolishness and go on about the business of seeing to their comfort and their wealth. Israel thought the Prophet a foolish person too, if I recall. Until they awoke one morning to the blood-thirsty horde of looters and rapists outside the walls. A few months later they were cooking and eating their own children.

The signs are there for anyone willing to see. When the pretext of 9-11 came along and gave us "Homeland Security" and the "Patriot Act" I saw the end of the road where that will lead. I understood that "muslim extremists" would not be the final victims of these evil laws. I understood that rights, once usurped by government, are forever lost. I understood that, just as in Nazi Germany, the suspension of judicial oversight over powers of arrest, detention and seizure will be expanded beyond the stated pretext for their creation to eventually be used for any purpose the government deems expedient. I understood that from that day forward a defacto police state, just like in Nazi Germany, already exists in Amerika, regardless of whether the government chooses to openly so conduct itself at this time.
I predicted the collapse of the housing and financial markets eight years before the ostriches saw it coming. I looked at the signs and I saw it coming. I perceived and understood the fraudulent way the Amerikan government dupes the public, propping up the appearance of a healthy economy by manipulating the reporting of selected "indicators". I saw and understood how a fantasy perception of "economic growth" is generated and continually perpetuated by the fraud of allowing ever more extensive and uncollateralized credit use by individuals, business and government. I understood the unsustainability and the unavoidable collapse of a system that allows everyone to perpetually spend more than they take in. I saw and understood the implication of allowing mega-business to move their operations "off-shore" so that ever more currency is siphoned off from circulation in the American economy. I saw and understood the implication of the government printing wads more money than it takes in, just as in Nazi Germany, to pay for programs it can't afford like the occupation and subjugation of foreign lands and to dole out billions that it does not have for "economic stimulus". I understood and I saw the inevitability of the “crisis”.
In America the ignorant and unperceptive say, "Prices have risen too high". The government encourages that false perception to divert public eyes from the truth. The truth is that the government is ravenously stealing from the people by just printing up and spending whatever money it wants without regard to its income. The simple economic truth is that prices have not "gone up" but rather "money has gone down". The truth is that the government is selling out the people by prostituting itself to serve mega-business contrary to the interests of the people.
When this huge fraud inevitably collapses there will be hordes of angry, suffering, hungry people looking for someone to blame, looking for someone to punish. It is absolutely certain that those in government are not going to take the blame for this. Someone, however, will take the blame and pay the price and history tells us who that someone will be. If the Jews of Amerika have not learned anything from the Germany of the Holocaust, I have. Jews are always the scapegoat.
Photo, above - Jews being paraded and ridiculed through German streets, 1938. Could the same thing happen in America?
The more things change, the more they remain the same. The Jews of Germany had the same sure warnings as ancient Israel had. They chose self-deception, "That can't happen here", and did not flee. Hashem permitted them the fate they chose. The Jews of Germany ignored the unpleasant fact of Amalek's return and went to their doom.
Amalek is back and this time it is the ostrich Jews of Amerika who have their heads stuck in the sand. Amalek will not stay his hand from evil because we wish it so. All the same signs are there for the Jews of Amerika that were there for the Jews of Germany. Like the Jews of Germany, the Jews of Amerika refuse to see. Once again the dark spirit of Amalek is marshalling the evil might of a world with no love for Jews for one more onslaught in evil's perpetual resolve to eradicate the Jews.
Like the Jews of Germany, the Jews of Amerika have clogged their ears against the din of the approaching hell-storm. Like the Jews of Germany, the Jews of Amerika deceive themselves with the same wishful thought, "Things are different now. This is America. We are safe. That could never happen here." Like the Jews of Germany, the Jews of Amerika are wrong. Like the Jews of Germany, the Jews of Amerika will suffer destruction in an implacable wave of unbearable agony and torment, G-d forbid.
This is the fate of the Jews of Amerika as things stand, though it need not be so. We know that teshuva and tefilla can reverse the evil decree. Our history is replete with proof that we can turn from sin to Hashem and Torah and Hashem will rescue us from evil decrees. Even without teshuva it is possible for us to stand invincible before our enemies. As Rav Shalom Arush points out, "When the Jews worshiped idols but remained united, They went to war and won." So, the fate of the Jews of Amerika is not set in stone. There is always the possibility that they will open their eyes and do teshuva before Hashem. There is always the possibility that they will throw aside the petty denominational differences and stand as one.
Still, I would rather not wait around to see. I want out. If I am to suffer or be martyred let it be standing on Holy Eretz Israel. If I am to have joy and abundance let it be standing on Holy Eretz Israel.
It is not only the Jews of Amerika I lament for. I see the evil gathering itself against our Holy Land. I hear the distant thunder of the approaching cavalcade of blood lust. I see the darkening sky that heralds evil's implacable approach. I hear the growing din of Amalek's raging, hate-filled scream for more rivers of Jewish blood. Unlike some, I do not expect Moshiach to suddenly appear and rescue us. It didn't happen that way all the other times and I don't see that this time is any different. We still haven't done our part! Until we understand and learn the lesson there is no reason for things to change. The Land of Israel is the key. Hashem commanded us to settle the land. Hashem commanded us to cleanse the land.
We should mind that the first man to fall under a Maccabe sword was not a Greek usurper but a Jew who ran to do the Greek bidding. Maccabe arrows did not distinguish between Greek oppressor and the assimilators who did their bidding. They struck them all down equally. Gush Katif was allowed to happened because holy people do not yet understand what is before us. Holy people are still standing with hands clasped waiting for Moshiach to rescue us when Hashem has put the outcome in our hands.
Hashem did not say, "Sit on your hands in the land and wait until Moshiach comes to do your job for you". Hashem said, "drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their temples, destroy their molten idols, and demolish their high places". Hashem said, "clear out the Land and settle in it". Hashem said, "You shall utterly destroy them; neither shall you make a covenant with them, nor be gracious to them". Hashem said, "You shall demolish their altars and smash their monuments, and cut down their asherim trees, and burn their graven images with fire". Hashem said, "You do this!" He did not say, "Wait for Moshiach to come and do it".
The Torah commands us to take up the sword and remove all goyim from the land of Israel. The Torah commands us to take up the sword and remove all idol worshippers and things of idol worship from the Land of Israel. The Torah commands us to clear and settle all of the Land of Israel. These commands are just as fully our Torah obligations as any of the other obligations we take upon ourselves. In my mind we are no more free to ignore or refrain from them than we are free to ignore or refrain from any other mitzvot. That they seem impossible is no excuse. That "the world" will disapprove or hate us is no excuse. Hashem commanded. Who dares say, "We should ot obey?"
Would we eat a pig because the world would hate us if we don't? Would we sacrifice a pig on a pagan altar because the world would attack us if we do not? No! There is therefore no excuse. If we claim to be Torah observant Jews we must observe all of the mitzvot. We must cleanse the Land or Hashem will kick us off the land AGAIN.
The root of all the trouble we have in the world from the day we crossed Jordan until today is our refusal in every generation to do with the Land as we have been commanded. I submit that Moshiach will not come and perform this obligation for us. We are given this duty to perform ourselves. If we want miracles, if we want Hashem in our midst, if we want Moshiach we cannot sit on our hands and ignore our obligations for another generation. We must all go home to settle all of our Heritage, fully cleanse our Land and raise up the Beit HaMikdash as Hashem commanded us. Am I the only one who sees this?
