Only HaShem...

"It shall come to pass on that day, on the day that Gog shall come against the Land of Admat Yisrael," says HaShem "My fury shall rise up..."
"Though a lot of nations will attack Israel over the years, angering Me and forcing Me to save My people from behind the scenes, Gog will be the nation that actually goes against Admat Yisrael, at which time I will be angered in such a way as to actually take action in a more overt way. (Yechezkel)

The language that Prophet Yechezkel zs'l chooses is very interesting. Why does he use the word Adama (soil) and not Eretz (land)?[+/-] show/hide text
Prophet Yechezkel hinted 2,000 years ago that Gog will force Israel to give up its holy soil (road map), and at the End of Days, HaShem's fury will rise up against him...

Haftara of Parshat Haazinu, Shmuel II, Perek 22, Pasuk 51
מגדול ישועות מלכו Highten the tower of salvation to His kingdom
Arizal says that on Shabbat we say Migdol as opposed to weekdays, when we say Magdil. From here we learn that Migdol is stronger than Magdil. When you connect the Yud and the Vav, it is YK (HaShem's name) and its holiness connects the Shabbat with weekdays.

ועושה חסד למשיחו HaShem does Chesed to his Moshiach.
The Ben Ish Chai zs'l says that the Geula can come only from HaShem. The hint is in the word עושה - does. It doesn't say did or will do. The word עושה is said in the present tense. From this we learn that only HKB'H has the "key" to Moshiach, and not thru any messengers.




והיה השם למלך על כל הארץ, ביום ההוא יהיה השם אחד - ושמו אחד ישתבח שמו לעד לנצח נצחים בכל העולמות Blessed is His name for eternity in all worlds אין עוד מלבדו
