It is now only memories, whether you were in Jerusalem or watching from afar. These were the days you said Chag Sameach, or “Happy Holiday” and now remember the whole month of Elul leading up to the Rosh Hashanah, with the sounding of the Great Shofar, the days of sorrow of those not best remembered moments of your life. And whether you were able to go to a synagogue, you did personally stand before the judgment seat of HaShem, in the court of heaven awaiting your moment of Divine justice.
And then came the Blood Moon on the eve of Succot, October 8, 2014, and again we called out again to the G-d of Israel to mitigate or soften His judgments upon us as the harbinger of justice settles all over the Lost Israelites and Jews around the world. Yes, we share the same fate by the One G-d of Israel for we all are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promises of Adonai to Abraham.
The Four Blood Moons of 2014 and 2015
Five days after Yom Kippur, came the great festival of salvation, the Jewish biblical holiday on the 15th day of Tishrei; the Feast of Booths, the Feast of Tabernacles; Sukkot, Succot or Sukkos. It came with great shout of joy as the skies over the Land of Israel exploded with the terrestrial scenes of lightning bolts from the heavens.
This time it came with an awakening in our hearts that HaShem was now revealing His approval upon His people and His Land with the “Early Rain”. Here palpable feelings of hope arose that the final paths of Divine Providence will lead us to the Final Redemption called the Ikvot Meshicha, “Messiah’s heels.”

Today, we stand upon the threshold, as revealed in the recent Destination Yisra’el’s recent blog titled, “Is this the Last Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur? The Rosicrucian Georgia Guidestone’s Final Message to Planet Earth?”, that we are now the recipients of a new “elevated stated of consciousness” as we become more aware that the slow process of salvation called Bi’etah that the Almighty One of Israel has been bringing down upon Planet Earth for the last three centuries, is now become quickened into a redemption by Ahishena with “great haste and great speed”.
It started in the days of one of the greatest Sages of Judah called “The Gra” or the “Vilna Gaon” who was known as the esteemed Jewish Rabbi Eliyahu ben Shlomo Zalman of Vilna (1720-1797). His life, mission and story of his disciples was revealed in part in the BibleSearchers Reflections article titled, “The Great Aliyah to Israel by the Disciples of the Vilna Gaon.”
This act of “The Vilna Gaon” aligning with the Divine opened the flood gates of heaven as “The Gra” and his Jewish disciples attempted to immigrate to the Land of Israel in the year of 1740 in the Jewish year of 5500, the 5th century of the 5000th year since the creation of Adam and Eve in Gan Eden. This was the dawn (6 a.m.) of the 6th millennium which would herald the era of the great redemption of Klal Yisrael, the restoration of the whole House of 12-tribed Israel.

These were the days of the It’chalta d’Geulah, or the “initial preparatory period preceding the Redemption.” It paralleled the phrase the “hour of the zamir (songbird) has arrived.” (Songs 2:12)
Think about this carefully, you, the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel. The 1730s to the 1740s was the era that the Almighty One of Israel was awakening of the Jews in Europe to their final redemption to return back to the Land of Israel, settle the land, farm and till the land, build homes and cities, synagogues and yeshivas in preparation for the revealing of the Mashiach. Yet, it was not an “event” but a “process” that continues to this day.
Yet, amazingly it was in the 1740s that “The First Great Awakening” raged across Protestant Europe and the British colonies in America. Here was an evangelical and revitalization movement that rose up from below by the hand of the Divine. It left a permanent impact upon American Protestantism; those who were protesting against apostate Romanism.
It was created by the “Finger of the Divine” and with its spiritual power yanked the 13 Original Colonies in American out of their spiritual slumber. It was they who represented the 13 Tribes of Israel with the House of Joseph having a double portion with the Tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh.
These Lost Israelite colonists were yanked away from the religious hierarchicalism of the Roman Catholic Church with the sacramentalism, ceremony and ritual and made Protestant Christianity intensely personal to all common men, from the African slaves in the South to the Visigothic Lost Tribal Puritans in the Northern States during the era of “King Edward VIII, the Catholic Inquisition and the Visigothic Lost Israelite Ancestors of the Cathars, the Huguenots, and the Waldensians.”
How can we forget that the Creator of the Universe is the “One G-d of Israel” who is leading all of His children home to their redemption and restoration in their covenanted homeland in Greater Israel? It will be during these days that the Trein Mesheechem (Twin Messiahs) will be revealed, and the Mashiach ben Yosef (Messiah son of Joseph) and the Maschiach ben Dovid (Messiah son of David) as encoded in the Torah will lead the ingathering of the exiles, the building of Yerushalayim, and the expansion and resettlement of Eretz Yisrael in preparation for the restoration of the Shekhinah (Divine Presence of G-d) on Planet Earth.
Let us not forget, HaShem, the G-d of Lost Israel and the G-d of the Jews is guiding and directing all of our lives. Regardless what political, economic, religious or spiritual crisis is affecting your life or is affecting the Land of Israel, the Almighty One of Israel is guiding and directing each one of our lives.
On the 7th day of Hoshana Rabbah, during the Feast of Tabernacles, this day is called the “Great Salvation.” This was the last day in which the Jews could shake their lulav, and eat in their own sukkahs in the Land of Israel and then call out to each other, “Chag Sameach” (Happy Holiday).
Psalms 118: 25-26 – “O L-rd, save us [hoshia’na]; O L-rd, grant us success. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the L-rd. From the house of the L-rd we bless you.”
As the eight-day festival of Sukkot was in the last hours of completion and the holiday of rejoicing was coming to its close, we once again remember that they included the three days; Hoshana Rabbah (Great Salvation), Shemini Atzeret (Eighth Day of Assembly) and Simchat Torah (Joy of the Torah). On the eve before Simchat Torah many of the observant Jews spent the entire evening reading the entire Book of Deuteronomy and the Book of Psalms.

On this last day, the Jewish people all over the world were intensely worshiping the L-rd their G-d, since according to tradition, this was the day that the judgment which was concluded and sealed on Yom Kippur was “delivered” to His chosen people and to the “nations of the world.”
Did we not perceive that this year could be somewhat like the year of 2008, when the New York Stock Exchange crashed 777 points on the eve of Rosh Hashanah? Did we not feel that something was amiss until this last week of Sukkot when the judgments of HaShem, the G-d of Israel was pronounced upon the nations of the world? This judgment was especially upon the nations in which the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel have made their last habitation; in Northern Europe and the colonies of the British Empire in America and around the world. These were also the same Lost Ten Tribes of Israel who G-d pronounced this prophetic utterance through the Prophet Jeremiah:
Jeremiah 51:20-21 – “You (Israel) are My battle-ax and weapons of war: for with you I will break the nation in pieces; with you I will destroy kingdoms; with you I will break in pieces the horse and its rider; with you also I will break in pieces the chariot and its rider…”
Was it a coincidence that during the final week of Succot the S&P 500 Index lost as much as 9.8% from its intraday peak, the Nasdaq Composite index dove down more than 10%, and the small-cap Russell 2000 crashed more than 14%? Was it not the seasoned experts that cried out; “Far from feeling vindicated, I’m just as frightened as you are? Corrections aren’t fake. They look like bear markets and act like bear markets. They scare you like bear markets!”
The global picture was not pretty. Panic was reigning in Europe. There was panic about the Federal Reserve, and there was panic about everything else. Yet, the most profound panic was about the Ebola virus, a human catastrophe that has been unleased first in West Africa and now may be migrating all around the world. Then is this an “Act of G-d”. When we read in the economic news the question then pops up, “Why does the CDC hold a patent on Ebola?”
Even as the Jewish holidays were closing the news in Israel was; “Ebola scare rattles hospital in Northern Israel.” At the same time the officials and employees from the Population Immigration and Border Authority, airline officials, the Magen David Adom Emergency Medical Services, the Israeli Health Ministry and the Israeli Police were all participating in a drill of identifying travelers who could potentially be carrying any type of virulent disease.
It may be soon, when we like the Jewish peasants during the Second Temple of Herod era on Hoshana Rabba would cry out, “Ana Adonai Hoshia’na”; “Save us, L-rd!” Then as it was now, as catastrophe after catastrophe arises we must take heart that this prayer is never spoken in vain for we do have the promise of HaShem that “All who call upon My Name will be saved.”
Joel 2:32 - “And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the Lord has said, among the survivors whom the Lord calls.”
Maybe we should thank our Jewish brothers for bringing also our names during this week of prayer, repentance and praise? And maybe we should also in our hearts say to them, “Pitka Tova”, which means “have a good ‘Sentence’ or ‘Sealed in the Book of Life’ meaning a New Year without judgment and with great potential.
And so on Hoshana Rabbah, the Torah scrolls are brought to the bema (platform) and a processional of worshipers carried the lulav (palm leaves) and etrogs (citrons) circle the sanctuary seven times, reciting prayers called Hoshanot (plural for save us).
When the evening sun set overlooking the city of Jerusalem, the festival of Hoshana Rabbah ended and Shemini Atzeret, the 8th day of Assembly began. This was also the time of joyous celebration as Simchat Torah began.
Leviticus 23:36 and Numbers 29:35 – “For seven days present food offerings to the Lord, and on the eighth day hold a sacred assembly and present a food offering to the Lord. It is the closing special assembly; do no regular work.”
According to the rabbinic traditions, we learn that on Shemini Atzeret, the world is judged concerning water, fruit and produce, and the amount of rainfall for the coming year is decided. It appears that the Divine One let us early get a hint that the Early and the Latter Rains this year will come upon Israel. This is also the reason that on the eighth day, during the closing ceremonies the Jewish people recited the special prayers for rain.
In ancient times, a special water drawing ceremony was performed every night during Sukkot called Simchat Beit HaShoeva (Rejoicing at the House of the Water-Drawing). It was a ceremony that was thought to have originated during the Second Temple period, when the Cohen HaGadol (High Priest) would draw water from the Pool of Siloam and then poured it out upon the altar as a Water Libation (offering).
Then the Jewish people would follow the cohen (priest) to the Pool of Siloam in a joyous processional of singing, dancing and rejoicing, reciting Hallel (praises) from Psalms 113–118 and 120–134, and chanting Isaiah 12:3: “With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.”
Let us not forget that our Father in Heaven has promised to give us “wells of living water” that will inspire our lives in these coming days on the threshold of the Redemption of Klal Yisrael (All Israel.
The Finger of the Divine is rapidly transforming our world in to the final Guela and redemption for All Israel; Judah and Ten-Israel together. As it comes to the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel, our naturalized homelands as we know them to be will soon disappear and we will have only one choice left, assimilate into rapidly decaying gentile world, or return to our ancestral tribal homelands in Israel. The prophets have a lot to say as to the fate of each of these Lost Israelites. The prophets continue to speak and reveal to us today in what was written in the ancient prophetic scrolls.
As with Rabbi Judah ben Samuel, the clue as to the prophetic vortex that is rapidly swirling around our lives is becoming more revealed. If you don’t know how to listen to the “still small voice”, the voice of HaShem, like Elijah the Prophet, it’s time to begin listening for the G-d of Israel is whistling or coaxing you to come back to the brotherhood of Klal Yisra’el (All Israel).
To learn more about this redemptive process, you are Welcome to Contact “Kol Ha'Tor”, the Voice of the Turtledove. Here is a joint Orthodox Jewish and 10-Triber Vison to bring awareness of the imminent fulfillment of the Biblical Prophecies regarding the Redemption of all Israel (12 Tribes Re-conciled and Re-United). This super Event of all Times will entail establishing in the region of Shomron (the Ancient Bible Heartland of the Patriarchs) and the Judean Wilderness into a new homeland for the Return of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel and the repatriated Jews in the Diaspora in that day when All Israel will finally be redeemed.
