Dreaming of Moshiach

Thirst for HaShem

The sefer Chesed L’Avraham (Maayan 5, Nahar 29) written by the Kadosh Tzaddik Rav Avraham Azulai, zs'kl, explains how thru the rain the holy sparks (nitsosot) separate from the Klipot (impurity) and only after all the holy sparks have been removed from the Klipot, the Geula can arrive.

"The Birur (clarification) depends on the rain and this is the reason that the Torah mentions that the biggest punishment is drought, and the biggest reward is "ונתתי מטר ארצכם And I'll give rain in your land," because the rain depends on the coming of Moshiach. This is the reason CHaZaL says "גדול יום הגשמים כיום קיבוץ גליות Big is the rainy day as the day of the the ingathering of the exiles." What is the connection between the two? The ingathering of the exiles in itself is the ingathering of the nitsosot that were held hostage in the Galut. Therefore, big is the rain in itself as the ingathering of the exiles."

Current Situation:

The water level of Lake Kinneret fell below the "red line" and there are real fears that Israel's faucets could run dry by mid-summer. Dr. Zaslavsky, former head of the Water Commission, told Israel Radio that the shortage will severely harm agriculture, with damages that could total "enormous" sums. The country's main water source hit the lower red line at the beginning of July, with the worst of the summer still to come. The water level is dangerously close to the level of the pumps. If it gets below pump level, they cannot pump any more water out.


On 3-4 Tevet (2006), I was shown how all springs, rivers, and lakes dried up in Eretz Israel -יבשה הארץ, יבשו הבורות, יבשו גם המעינות ומים כמעט ואין

Where do you think water comes from? Do you think it comes from tap? By opening the tap out pours the water?. And if no water flows from the faucet, will you comfort yourself by thinking water can be purchased?. But what if there's no water from springs, rivers, and lakes and no water to purchase?.

Where does water come from?

Why did the rain stop? Because people pretend to look forward but the reality is that people's eyeballs are turned backwards, looking only at themselves, at their own pathetic lives, concerned only for themselves. They don't realize that water comes from HKB'H and yet, they stubbornly search in vain for water, instead of beseeching to HKB'H with Teshuva and begging HaShem to send precious precious water rain.

There is no water to be found in the whole land. People complaining about lack of water and the thirst is tremendous but they stubbornly do not want to realize it all comes from HKB'H. The cow will not give milk because she has no water to drink. The chickens will not lay eggs, because there is no water to drink. The earth has dried up. The trees are crying for some water for they are dying. Why do you complain there is no water? Pray to HaShem. Cry to HKB'H השיבנו ה' אליך ונשובה bring us back to You, HaShem, and we shall return.

“Behold, days are coming – the word of HaShem – when I will send a hunger into the Land; Not a hunger for bread or a thirst for water, but to hear the words of Hashem.”
