“In the fifth year (2013, starting with Rosh Hashanah 2012), there will be plenty (of rain) and people will eat, drink, and be joyous, and the Torah will return to those who learned it.”
It was April, 2013 that Kol Ha Tor Director, OvadYah Avrahami gave us the inside scoop on the latest in the continuous blessing of rain that the State of Israel has been experiencing since early January. This was posted in the blog titled, “Transforming Climate Change and Rain in Israel may bring a New Garden of Eden.”
Now again OvadYah Avrahami brings us the news of rain in the Land of Israel:
“Thunderstorms in Israel. Shomron - almost Shavuot and rain is predicted for Shavuot!
OvadYah Avrahami – “It is Monday evening 15 May. There is thunder and lightning outside and refreshing rain has been coming down over the last 20 minutes! This type of thunder storm, which we are used to in South Africa in summer time, is seldom experienced even in the winter rain season in Israel. The heavy daytime clouds over the last week and intermittent cool summer weather reminds us of South African summer weather which is totally different to Israel.
I checked with our Tour Guide who has lived in Shomron for the last 30 years. "It is unusual." he comments, remarking that a friend, a weather man told him that he does not recollect ever having had rains at Shavuot time.
A short but strong down pour came on Shabbat,, 3 days ago - while the sun was shining plus intermittent heavy rain clouds. The weather is cool for this time of the year - it should have been heavy summer heat already, and on Shabbat, I had to dress warmer mid-day! Certainly strange to our knowledge!
I have commented on this change recently, posing the question whether perhaps this may be "The year of Blessing" after Israel's new Gas line to its abundant new gas fields was also connected right before Pesach (Passover 2013).

Rabbi Yochanan ben Zaccai of Yavnah wrote the following prophecy just after the destruction of the city of Jerusalem and the Holy Temple in 70 CE.
Sanhedrin 97a – “Rebi Yochanan ben Zaccai of Yavnah said: In the generation that Ben Dovid will come, talmidei chachamim, the “pupil of wisdom” known as the Torah sage or scholar, will decrease, and the eyes of the remainder will protrude from sighing and sorrow; many chastisements and many evil decrees will be renewed; one will not cease before another begins.”
Then we complete the Prophecy of Rabbi Judah ben Zaccai of Yavneh of the last Seven Years before the coming of the Messiah as we read these words:
- In the first year (2009 starting with Rosh Hashanah 2008), the following prophecy in Amos 4:7 will be fulfilled “I caused it to rain on one city, but, on another city, I did not cause it to rain.
- In the second year (2010, starting with Rosh Hashanah 2009), there will be a “slight famine” in which according to Rashi, “no place will be completely satisfied”.
- In the third year (2011 starting with Rosh Hashanah 2010), “famine will be great, and men, women, children, pious people, and men of good deeds will die; Torah will be forgotten by those who learned it.”
- In the fourth year (2012, starting with Rosh Hashanah 2011), “some will be satiated while others are not.”
- In the fifth year (2013, starting with Rosh Hashanah 2012), there will be plenty and people will eat, drink, and be joyous, and the Torah will return to those who learned it.”
- In the sixth year (2014, starting with Rosh Hashanah 2013), there will be voices which according to Rashi depict either the blowing of the shofars (war) or the hints and voices about the coming of the messiah.
- In the seventh year (2015, starting with Rosh Hashanah 2014), there will be war (Gog-Magog or Armageddon).”
All across the Land of Israel preceding the Festival of Shavuot, the Jewish people began the preparation to celebrate the Festival of Shavuot. This was the day when the G-d of Israel gave to the Children of Israel, His Torah. This included the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel and the House of Judah. During that time the Children of Israel had received a spiritual state of prophecy, with an elevated state of consciousness where the revelation of the Holy and Divine One of Israel would have been in the most receptive mode where they received the true revelation of the Divine and the “Blueprint” of their true existence of reality; the spiritual neshama soul that was created in the “Image of G-d.”
One of the promises was that someday in the future, Klal Yisrael, all 12-tribes of the House of Jacob would see that “Land” that had lain bare of foliage, unwanted by the Ishmaelites, and neglected as a “no-man’s land” by all the nations of the world, would now witness this same land receiving rain with great abundance. They would see this awe and premonitions, that they were witnessing a Divine sign that the G-d of Israel was returning to be with His chosen people.
What was unknown to them was that that, HaShem, the G-d of Israel was beginning to unsheathe and uncloak His Divine Existence and reveal to His Chosen People the revelation that He was their G-d and it was time for them to become prepared to anticipate with blessings of joy as He unleashes His Divine Power and Glory as He elevates their existence to a new State of Consciousness.
When the “showers of blessings” are now seen in literal reality, it will also open up the dawn of new reality to the House of Judah that their final Redemption must be fully grasped with the fullness it’s manifestation. Yet, this will only come when the House of Judah and the House of Israel lay down their suspicions about each other, and join together with great joy and gladness at the reunion and reunification of the entire House of Jacob. This will be the sign that Eliyahu the Prophet is arriving to “prepare the way of the L-rd” as a new state of reality will open up with a new consciousness upon All Israel (Klal Yisrael).
So as Shavuot is celebrated across the Land of Israel, the Book of Ruth is also being read. Her life was a story of redemption that even after an entire nation is cursed by the Divine for ten generations, so also Ruth the Moabite, the 11th generation was redeemed and restored as one of the Children of Israel. For her faith and honor of her aliyah, she was blessed to become the ancestral grandmother of King David and the Davidian Dynasty of kings from the lineage of Kings David and Solomon.
This multi-generational “curse” was placed upon the Nation of Moab whose beginnings began with the incestuous relationship between Lot, the nephew of Abram and one of his daughters who was rescued by the angels from the clutches of annihilation when the fiery bolides of sulphur destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah and destroyed the entire beautiful Vale of Siddim. Ruth, now redeemed after 10 generations of curses was restored back into the family of Children of Israel.
So today, the 2013 Festival of Shavuot (Pentecost) was heralded with heavy showers that were accompanied with thunder and lightning in various locales though the Land of Israel. The weather forecasters were expecting a high likelihood of flooding in the desert regions of the Negev with cool temperatures five-to-seven degrees lower in most regions of Israel. It was also expected that this unseasonably cool season would continue in the days after the festival season of Shavuot.
The traditional First Fruits ceremonies that was hosted over a scattering of dozens of kibbutzim were either rained out or rescheduled for over the weekend. Even so, a majority of the kibbutzim still held their Shavuot ceremonies as over 200,000 Israelis participated in the services. Kibbutz Snir in the region of the panhandle in Northern Galilee were one of many who persisted and held their ceremonies with the rain drenched skies.
While the Land of Israel was experiencing one of the wettest winters in decades, 2012, the United States was recording the hottest year ever record in America. In this same land, the newly created United States was initially populated by the descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel. Today, the descendants of those early Pilgrims and Puritans that settled the land along the Eastern Seaboard of the United States today have an unsettled mood in their hearts. The song that they have sung for decades, “This land is your land, this land if my land,” is now being sung “This Land is (Not) your Land, this Land is (Not) my land”. From all prophetic speculations, the era of reunification between the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel and the Jewish people of the House of Judah was now imminent.
Called by many “Global Warming” this warming trend documented in the United States goes back to the official weather and temperature records that go back to 1895. The yearly average today is based upon reports documented from more than 1,200 weather stations across the 48 states on the continental United States. It also was documented by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that the year of 2012 experienced the second-most extreme weather in history after the hurricane dominated year of 1998. Using a complex formula of records that included temperature records, drought, downpours, and land-falling hurricanes, the national picture depicts that a true weather change was being experienced in the land once called the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.”
What was documented in the United States was the fact that the year of 2012 ranked second to 2011 as having the highest number of high-damage events to occur. This included eleven different $1billion disasters led by the Superstorm Sandy and the multi-year long drought across the whole continent of North America, the worst since the 1950s era of drought and only slightly behind the Dust Bowl drought and Great Depression of the 1930s.
Blamed upon La Nina and what was erroneously called “Global Warming”, the true reality appears that it is the hand of G-d’s judgment that may soon be placed upon this nation’s population of the former immigrants from the Tribe of Ephraim of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel. But, it also includes those indigenous peoples of the Hopi and the Navahos in the Western United States and the Confederation of the Six “First Nations in America” who were from the Tribe of Manasseh, in the eastern part of the continent who are both descendants from the House of Joseph.
There in the land populated by the descendants of the Tribe of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh, we are seeing the most weather extremes in the past 108 years. Over the last century alone, the temperature trends have gone upwards to 1.3 degrees according to NOAA. The only year in the 20th century that was cooler than 2012 was the year of 1997. The last record cold month of December was 1983. What was even more stunning which the scientists are calling incredulous, is the evidence of how far above other past “hot years” the year of 2012 became. In the 117 years of national temperature record documentation, all previous records were clustered between the temperature degrees of 51 to 54 degree Fahrenheit, yet 2012 soared well above 55 degrees; a full degree above the prior record set in 1998.
With this fact in mind, we wonder, will the rabbanim in 2013 proclaim with great joy, as the Prophet Zechariah prophesied over 2,300 years ago, and declare that in 2013 it is now time to “Replace your Feasts of Fasting with Feasts of Joy and Thanksgiving”, when He asked the Prophet Zechariah to be His mouthpiece as he penned the following verses in the ancient Book of Zechariah.
Zechariah 8:19 – “The word of HaShem, Master of Legions, came to me, saying: ‘Thus said HaShem, Master of Legions: The fast of the fourth (month) [17th of Tammuz, the capture of Jerusalem], the fast of the fifth [9th of Av and the Destruction of the Two Temples of G-d in Jerusalem], the fast of the seventh [Feast of the Assassination of Gedeliah} and the fast of the tenth (month) [Seige of Jerusalem] will be to the House of Judah but also for joy and for gladness and for happy festivals. (Only) love truth and peace!

All of have wondered how the G-d of Israel will bring all the prophetic events to their fulfillment at the time of the end. Watching the “Finger of the Divine” stirring up nations of the world is far more fascinating than watching a movie drama. The end results will be that all nations will pool all their economic resources at the “gates of Israel” and be prepared to once again to evoke the “Final Solution” this time amongst the remnant of the Jewish peoples that include all the Jews of the Diaspora that have fled to Israel as a land of safety before their lives will be thrust into “the world to come”.
And during this same time, the G-d of Israel is wooing each one of you, the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel, to return and be restored back into brotherhood with the Jews of the House of Judah so that He will send His Messiah to clean house of all the wickedness and corruption on Planet Earth.
