Armageddon of the Bees

The article about the mysterious missing bees begins as follows:

In late 2006, whole hives of honeybees began dying overnight--victims of an unknown syndrome. All the unanswered questions have beekeepers buzzing. "Something out there is ruining my livelihood," says David Hackenberg, the Pennsylvania beekeeper who first reported CCD.

The answer:
In late 2006, (exact date: Dec.14, 2006, erev Chanuka), Kever Devorah HaNevia, a'h, was found in the upper Galil in Tel Kadesh...

The history:
After Ehud ben Gera's death, zs'l, HaShem gave the Jews into the hand of King Yavin of Canaan. For 20 years Am Israel suffered daily intifada from wicked Sisera and his army.

During this time, a woman named Devorah, (HaNevia, a'h) began to observe what is occuring to Am Israel. She went to Shilo (the city were the Mishkan was) and saw that the place was filthy. The walls and its corners were full of cobwebs and she saw an old man holding a a small candle, hardly able to learn. She returned to her husband and quickly sent him to Shilo with wicks and olive oil to light the Mishkan in Shilo. She herself went out in the streets and saw an old woman crying, tearing her hair out and asked her, "What is wrong?." The old woman replied, "I have an only son who is very ill and in grave danger." Devorah (HaNevia) replied, "Have you forgotton the G.od of Israel? Right away go with your sick son and take with you olive oil to the Mishkan and pray to HaShem that your son will live. Light the oil for the honor of the Torah, and b'h, HaShem will save your son". The woman believed Devorah (HaNevia) and did as told. HKB'H healed the woman's son.

Meanwhile, Devorah HaNevia went to the marketplaces and to the streets and woke up Am Israel's hearts. She saw 2 old men sitting at the corner of the street, telling each other their pain. She said to them, "Enough old men. Instead of speaking about your tragedies, why don't you ask from our Heavenly Father for mercy? Get up, wash your faces and go to the Mishkan in Shilo and cry to HKB'H that Am Israel are in pain and are being prosecuted daily by our enemies, the wicked Sisera and King Yavin."

She continued to do this, going in various places and waking up the Jewish hearts of men, women, and children to go to Shilo and cry to HaShem for mercy. She told each person to take with them wicks and olive oil to light up the Mishkan.

Meanwhile, she continued sending with her husband wicks and olive oil for the Mishkan while awakening Am Israel to do Teshuva. Soon after, she went to visit the Mishkan in Shilo and saw that it was packed with men, women, and children crying to HKB'H for mercy and candles were lit in every corner, including in the gardens.

The biggest sins of that generation was claiming that everything that was happening to them was a 'coincidence', blaming 'mother nature' on disasterous weather and blaming the government for being wicked men. But now they were no longer saying that it was coincidences or mother nature, they realized that HaShem runs the world and the Creator of the World can change the decrees, based on the behavior of the Jews.

Devorah (HaNevia) herself strengthened in Emunah (faith) and said, "Creator of the World, Your sons and Your friends are screaming to You and begging for Your forgivness. They are waiting for Your salvation and there is no salvation, except YOU."

Devorah (HaNevia) knew that the tragedies are not for nothing. She went to visit yeshivot and schools and saw that the Jewish children are being taught the Canaan language. Devorah (HaNevia) yelled in pain, "Where is the Torah that we received in Har Sinai? It says in the Torah about the young babies of the Torah, "מפי עוללים ויונקים 'Out of the mouth of babes and nursing babies, etc."

Right away, an awakening came about to Am Israel, it was Time of Will, שעת רצון, and all the Talmud Torah and Yeshivot removed idols from their hallways and purified themselves from foreign language. It was during this cleansing period that HKB'H gave Devorah HaNevia prophecy and it was then that HaShem told her to call Barak ben Avinoam (zs'l) to war against Sisera.

During the 40 years that Devorah HaNevia judged Am Israel and was a prophetess, she and her husband lived separately.

We learn from this that when Devorah HaNevia saw Am Israel's despicable behavior, she woke them up to do Teshuva and thru their repentance, HKB'H saved Am Israel and redeemed them.

May we, the last generation, also merit to do complete Teshuva and HKB'H will redeem us in the final redemption, be'zchut Devorah HaNevia, a'h.
