Dreaming of Moshiach

One World One Dream

Guest post by Reb Dovid

About 2 months ago, I started searching for hints and ideas about China and the upcoming Olympics. What triggered this was mainly the main attraction of the Olympics being in Beijing. The national stadium where the Olympic games will take place and will host field competitions for the Olympics, as well as the opening and closing ceremonies, is also known as the Bird's Nest.

I looked up the Mitzvah of the bird's nest, Shiluach Haken, and found that the gematria of "it should be good for you and a length of days" (the Pasuk's rationale for the Mitzvah) comes to 813; the same as in the accepted modern Hebrew Olympic games Beijing ( I crossed- reference it, and both are 813.)

I further researched this unique Mitzvah and there are loads written on it, all focusing on Moshiach, Eliyahu HaNavi (zachur latov), and the Geulah, icluding sources from the RaMCHaL, the CHiDA, a'h, and many others.

The matter of Shiluach Haken is the ultimate Mitzvah of the Geula.

I thought of all China's quirks, and as you have posted, I found the weather control to be most disturbing. After reading about it at length, China has the worlds biggest army to fight HaShem, of course in vain.

My surprise was, that after a few weeks, I developed an entire scenario of the significance of China, and its direct relation to the Olympics games, and its possible downfall. As you can imagine, when I saw your post End of China, I was highly surprised. I spent days in my yeshiva, telling everyone about China, the Olympics, etc. and to see that you were tuned in as well, left me floored.

Our accounts are nearly identical... with the exception of the Bird's Nest.

When in history have we had or will have again the opportunity to fullfill this Mitzvah, even if only conceptually, if not now? This is one of the world's largest spiritual Mitzvah ever.

The amazing twist in all of this is China's slogan for the Olympic games is called: "One World One Dream"
One World - Olam Haba
One Dream - Redemption

Comment by SB:
China is known for taking children away from parents (if they have more than one which is against the law) and also innocent people as well as criminals serving time to harvest "organs" to sell on the open market to the more than willing Western World who ask no questions as to where these came from.

Any gematrias someone may know on the evil that is perpetrated on their own people?

I guess we are in for an interesting summer. May Hashem keep us all safe from harm, and may we merit Moshiach Now!!!
