Unity and Geula

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

Yaakov Avinu, zs'l, called for his sons and said, האספו, assemble yourselves. That is, "Unify and become a single nation with לב אחד, one heart, and I’ll tell you about your redemption at the end of days".

When you have a לב אחד, gematria 45, then you will have a גאולה, gematria 45, at the end of days. But there was no unity among the brothers. There still was bad feelings and finger pointing among them. They did Tshuvah with respect to Yosef HaTzaddik, zs'l, but with respect to each other, they were separate tribes. And so, Yaakov Avinu could not reveal to them what would befall them at the end of days.

In fact, the gematria of האספו 152 is the same as the phrase עד היום הזה (until this day). For until this very day, there still has not been achdus among us.

However, there was one brief period of time of a לב אחד at הר סיני (Mount Sinai), and because of this achdus, Moshe Rabbenu, zs'l, was able to tell the Jewish People before his death of what would occur to them at the end of days. He told the Jewish People that they would stray from the path of Torah, and that if they angered Hashem through the work of their hands, במעשה ידיכם, then evil would befall them וקראת, at the end of days.

The only other time the word וקראת is used in Chumash is when Hagar was told that she would have a son, and she should call him (וקראת) by the name Yishmael. For the descendants of Yishmael is the evil that will befall the Jewish People at the end of days. We will anger Hashem through the work of our hands (במעשה ידיכם (501 and (ישמעאלים (501 will bring evil against us.

But what is the work of our hands that Hashem is angry about? Hashem is angry when our very own hands put the wrong people in power over us. This results in our downfall. Leaders in Israel who don’t believe in G-d bring a spiritual collapse. While dangerous leaders in America and other countries results in our physical and moral downfall. There is a real connection between the number 501 to במעשה ידיכם and ישמעאלים, as well as to the next President of the United States.

Indeed, 501 is also the gematria of ראש representing the new head of America. But sadly to the Jewish People’s misfortune, 501 is also the name of our next President, ברק חוסיין אובאמה, Barack Hussein Obama. Hashem watches as countless liberal Jews, especially in Hollywood, rush to send their money to Obama’s campaign chest. And so with our own hands we bring a descendant from Yishmael and place him as our Rosh in the White House just 7 years after 9/11. He is the evil that will befall us at the end of days.
