Clear signs of Redemption: Part 2

Guest post by Reb Yosef ben Yaakov (Joel Gallis); Redemption 5768.

We explained on previous shows the significance of the numbers 11 and 111. The name Yismael is secretly coded only once with an interval of 11 spaces in between each of its letters, while 111 represents the amount of days between September 11, 2001 and 12/31/01 corresponding to the number of days between 1/1/08 and 4/20/08 (the first day of Pesach).

But there is also a special significance in the number 1111. This number represents the Jewish People now, at the eve of redemption. For the gematrias of Moshiach Ben Yosef (566), Moshiach Ben David (424), and והעם (and the people) (121), equals 1111.

This number resembles a protective fence from the plagues being sent around the world in the form of natural disasters. And still the world does not see the hand of Hashem in these happenings.

The Jewish People, specifically those that believe in the coming redemption, will be protected behind this fence. For this fence is constructed by our belief that the 2 Moshiachs will shortly come and destroy evil in the world, and by our "reaching out for our fellow Jews" (והעם).

Reb Tuvia had the feeling that there was a connection to the number 20 as explained in his analysis of the $20 bill.

Indeed there is great signifance in the fact that Joseph HaTzaddik, zs'l, was sold for 20 pieces of silver. For the 1111th verse in Chumash is Bereshis 37 (27) which reads, "Come let us sell him to the Yishmaelites" (for 20 pieces of silver). The odds of this happening by chance are off the charts.

The only word in Chumash that has a gematria of 1111 is at the very end of the Tochachah at Devarim 28 (68). It is והתמכתם (and you shall seek to sell yourselves). That is, seek to become part of the societies in galus. Try and show them that you are just like them in your loyalty and nationalism. Join in and build pyramids in Egypt, become part of the culture in Spain, become outstanding citizens in Germany, and become an American first and a Jew second. Although we try to sell ourselves and fit in, we wind up running or attempting to run out of these countries for our very lives. But "no one will buy you as slaves " ואין קנה , or want your services.

But our Father in Shamayim watches closely, for the gematria of ואן קנה is 222, the same as יקבצך, He will gather you.

May Hashem gather us in very soon and may we only perform services for Him, amen.
