Prayers and Prophecy

This post is made up of snippets I got in my inbox today.

Snippet 1: More prayers from the Rav describing exactly what is going on now, written many many years ago.

(From HERE):

In light of the war of the ‘Iron Swords’ currently occurring in the Holy Land, we are bringing a number of prayers that Moreinu HaRav, Eliezer Berland, Shlita wrote a few years ago to read and instruct us:



Ribono Shel Olam, the merciful and compassionate Master of the World, Who is full of compassion.

We pour our hearts before you like water, about the Jewish blood that was spilt like water.

The Victor of all victors, the Hero of all the heroes, the Strongest of all the strong ones.

Please, see via our eyes, and come and fight our battles, because we were delivered over for mockery and derision before the eyes of all the nations.

And we were left ‘ownerless’, given over to strangulation, burning, murder and stoning.[1]

And each and every day, the nations of the world place amongst us devouring, blood-thirsty wolves, and sentence us to be slaughtered, burnt, strangled and stoned.

And each day, the curse is multiplied from the previous day.


And it’s already close to 2,000 years that we are wandering from exile to exile, to captivity, amidst hunger and disgrace.

And in the days of the Inquisition, they burnt us at the stake.

And in the time of the Holocaust, they put us in ovens.

And still, the nations of the world aren’t satiated with our flesh and blood, and they are still eagerly seeking after Jewish blood, and are bringing upon us aggressive, destructive wars.

Similar to the bloody crusades that happened in the era of Rashi, Rabbenu Tam and the Baalei Tosfot.

And the blood of Israel is being poured out in the streets day and night, at every hour of the day, and from every corner we are hearing the cries of widows and orphans, and of bereaved parents, and almost entire families are being annihilated from one week to the next.


The stench of death is rising up to our windows, and our enemies are stopping us from walking in our streets.

And every heart is melted like water, and our blow is mortal.

For the plague has reached to Yehuda, the affliction has reached to the gate of my people, until Jerusalem.

“For this I will lament and wail; I will go about delirious and naked; I will make lamentation like the jackals and mourning like owls.”[2]


God, don’t be silent! Don’t be deaf! And don’t be still, God!

For behold, Your enemies are in an uproar, and those who hate You have raised their head.

Against Your people they plot deviously, they are holding counsel against those sheltered by You!

They said, ‘Come, let us cut them off from being a nation, so the name of Israel won’t be remembered any longer!’

For they take counsel together as one, they strike an agreement against You.


The tents of Edom and the Ishmaeilites; Moab and the Hagrites; Gebal and Ammon and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre.

Even Assyria joined with them, they became the strong arm of Lot’s sons, Selah.

Do to them what was done to Midian, and to Sisera, and to Jabin at Kishon Brook, who were destroyed at Ein-dor, and they became dung for the earth.

Make their nadivim (nobles, but also means benefactors) like Orev and Zeev, and all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna.

Who said, We will conquer the pleasant habitations of God for ourselves.


O my God!

Make them like the whirling chaff, like stubble before the wind!

Like a fire burning the forest, and like a flame that sets mountains ablaze!

Like this, pursue them with Your tempest and terrify them with your storm!

Fill their faces with shame, and then they will seek Your name, Hashem.

Let them be shamed and terrified forever, then they will be disgraced and they will perish.

Then they will know that You – Whose name is Hashem – are alone, Most High, over all the earth.[3]


For one day in Your courtyards is better than a thousand (elsewhere).

I would rather stand exposed at the threshold of my God’s house than to dwell securely in the tents of wickedness.

For a sun and a shield is Hashem, God. Favor and glory does Hashem bestow.

He withholds no goodness from those who walk in perfect innocence.

Hashem, Master of Legions!

Praiseworthy is the man who trusts in You.[4]


And fulfill within us the verses:

“Comfort, comfort My people, says your God.

‘Speak consolingly to the heart of Jerusalem, and tell her that her time [of exile] is up, and that her sin has been forgiven, for she has been given double for all of her sins, from Hashem’s hand.

A voice calls out in the wilderness, clear the way for Hashem, make a straight path in the desert, a road for our God!…[5]

Go up on a high mountain, O herald of Zion, raise your voice strongly, O herald of Jerusalem.

Raise it, don’t be scared!

Say to the cities of Yehuda, ‘Behold, your God! Behold, my Lord Hashem will come with His strength, and His arm will overpower for Him.

Behold, His reward is with Him, and His wage is before Him.

[He is] like a shepherd who grazes his flock, who gathers the lambs in his arm, who carries them in his bosom, who guides the nursing ewes….[6]

Every valley will be raised and every mountain and hill will be lowered.

The crooked will become straight and heights will become valley.

The glory of Hashem will be revealed, and all flesh together will see that the mouth of Hashem has spoken.[7]



[1] These are the four types of death that can be prescribed by a Bet Din, a Jewish Court of Law, for transgressors.

[2] Micah 1:8 – the Prophet then continues: “For her wound is grievous, for it has come to Judah, it has extended to the gate of my people, up to Jerusalem.”

[3] Tehillim 83.

[4] Tehillim 84:11-13.

[5] Isaiah 40:1-4.

[6] Isaiah 40: 9-11.

[7] Isaiah 40: 4-5.


Snippet two, from a reader:

Direct quote from the Rav from One In A Generation pg. 8

In the Midrashim, it’s written that:
In the days that the Moshiach comes, there will be a terrible war.
People will be chopped and sliced into bits, because everybody will have done so many transgressions, that it’s impossible to atone for any other way.

Snippet three, from a friend who’s son is one of the soldiers doing duty in the South:

On Tuesday he had the chance to be on a foot patrol through one of the massacred kibbutzim. He sent us pictures, which are chilling enough but when I spoke with him today, he mentioned the stench, the flies of being in a place like that.
He also said it was like being in one of the Polish shtetls we were in not even a year ago, where the entire Jewish population was slaughtered, except that now it wasn’t 80 years ago, but only a few days.

“The stench of death is rising up to our windows, and our enemies are stopping us from walking in our streets.”


These prayers were written many long years ago.

The Rav has been talking about the Baal Shem Tov and Adelle, the BESHT’s daughter, being kidnapped and taken hostage by cannibal ‘Heidamaks’ for months….

And about people being chopped up like ‘shawarma’ for years….


Today, I woke up feeling:

a) Very sad, that so many people have died in such appalling circumstances, and that this isn’t over yet by a long way.


b) Very angry, that so many people listened to the ‘messengers of Satan’ who pulled them away from believing that the Rav was the Tzaddik HaDor, and following his instructions to get all this sweetened.

I am still very angry at all those ‘messengers of Satan’.

It took 50 tehillim to get me out of bed this morning, but now I’m feeling better again, and I’m trying to get on with Shabbat.


(Just to be clear: ‘Messengers of Satan’ are the ones who have actively spoken negatively against the Rav, not people who don’t know what to believe and have their doubts. Although at some point, there is ‘don’t know’ and ‘really don’t WANT to know’ – each person will have to do their own cheshbon hanefesh.)


Going forward, please stop sending me more pointless ‘analyses’ of what is going on from people who either have no idea, or are controlled opposition, mamash.

If someone has publically spoken out against Rav Berland in the past, you can be sure they are still a ‘messenger of Satan’, unless they made some very big, very obvious teshuva.

Our government, all our media, all the fake rabbis and ‘leaders’ and nearly all of the so-called ‘alt-media’ fit in this category.


It goes up in concentric circles.

Mike Adams, for example, is not going to speak badly about Rav Berland  – he’s just a vicious American intelligence asset sowing general anti-semitism, and hatred of the Jewish people.

Then we have the ‘anti dati’ hatred.

Then we have the ‘controlled opposition’ Litvaks etc, sowing general hatred against Breslov practices like going to Uman for Rosh Hashana, for example.

And then, in the frum ‘Chassidic’ circles, the poison gets more focussed, against the Rav and his community specifically.

But it’s all the same poisonous evil.


And personally, I don’t want to hear anything from any of these people at this stage.

However big or small their platform might be, whether they are paid commentators or just your mates on social media….

Turn off the news, and continue with the tehillim!

We are still in a very dangerous situation, even though stuff is being radically ‘sweetened’ here by all the teshuva, mesirut nefesh, prayers and kindnesses.

All the world leaders flying in – including Rishi Sunak – they are here to plan our destruction, God forbid, not to help us.


One more snippet from my inbox, then it’s off to make Shabbat:

More US ships coming…

Special report: An unprecedented American naval force with over 15 thousand American soldiers is enveloping Israel.
American military support for Israel, which is reflected in the placement of dedicated physical forces near Israel, is reaching its peak these days. Here is a list of the naval forces (only) that were sent to Israel due to the security situation.
1.USS Gerald R. Ford (aircraft carrier)
2. USS Eisenhower (aircraft carrier)
3.Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser
4.USS Normandy (destroyer)
5. USS Thomas Hudner (destroyer)
6. USS Ramage (destroyer)
7. USS Carney (destroyer)
8.USS Roosevelt (destroyer)
9.USS mount Whitney (command ship)
10.USS Bataan
Here’s what I wrote back:

I am so waiting for that tsunami to show up….


BH, b’karov mamash.


PS: My neighbor downstairs told me that the Army here is asking people to say ‘Shema Israel’ at 8pm every night now.

And also, that Channel 14 here is sending out perek tehillim for their viewers to say.

BH, things are finally starting to move at least a little in the right direction – of only trusting God.

    Oy that list of ships!
    and people believe that the USA is here to “help” us! They only want to limit us and end this not-a-war early so the oil prices don’t spike.
    But Bibi got his photo op.

      Rivka Levy says:

      This is about a two state ‘solution’ and trying to destroy yiddishkeit, God forbid, not oil prices. They have all the free energy anyone could need, ‘oil’ is just another fairy tale they tell us all to keep control and have an excuse to keep killing people all over the world.

    Elisheva says:

    I saw a beautiful picture of charedi men tying titzit onto army coloured tallit katan for issuing to soldiers. Also non kosher kitchens in TA being kashered so they can feed soldiers. Little moves, but B”H in the right direction.

  3. Simon
    Simon says:

    I am now actually starting to write a book[let] about the various archaeological matters I am aware of that confirm the Tanakh, that I may use it, God willing, to help someone with “scientific” questions.
    May God be with me in this as always.
