Are Christians Fulfilling the Prophecy of Isaiah? (האם הנוצרים מקיימים את נבואת ישעיהו הנביא?)

ד' הול המועד סוכות תשע"ד

Times of Israel: Christians Fulfilling the Prophecy of Isaiah
(למאמר שלו בעברית ללחוץ כאן.)
Rabbi Eliezer Melamed

Rabbi of Har Berakhah, Shomron (Samaria), September 18, 2013

The Enveloping Light of the Sukkah

The mitzvah of sitting in the Sukkah is unique in sanctifying man’s daily routines. The eating and drinking, the chatting, and the sleeping which we do in the Sukkah are elevated and sanctified to the point where they are deemed mitzvoth.

It is specifically on Sukkot that we merit this, because Sukkot is Chag HaAsif (the holiday of in-gathering). This is when both the physical and spiritual in-gathering of the year are completed – the in-gathering of grain and fruit, as well as the in-gathering of all our Torah study and all of our good deeds. Thanks to the repentance and atonement that we undergo during the month of Elul and Aseret Yemei Teshuvah (the ten days of repentance), this in-gathering is innocent and pure, and we can thoroughly enjoy it.

Sukkah and the Land of Israel
In this sense, the mitzvah to live in the Sukkah and the mitzvah to settle the Land of Israel are similar (Vilna Ga’on, cited in Kol HaTor 1:7). Both of these mitzvoth envelop us, and we immerse ourselves in their atmosphere of holiness. By doing so, even our mundane activities become sanctified. (cont.)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Rabbi Melamed neglects a very important series of points. We (Jews) do not violate halakhah (Jewish Law), based on past nevu'ah (prophecy),...and that is very much an oversimplification. We follow halakhah according to halakhic sources.

Avodah Zarah and Incitement to Involve Others
Christians are  'ovdei avodah zarah (Ramba"m Hil. A"Z 9:4 - uncensored version). We are not allowed to bring 'ovdei avodah zarah (practitioners of foreign/forbidden worship, Ex. 20:2, Deut. 7:2-6) into the Land to pollute it with their practices which The Almighty despises, we are certainly not allowed to make it easy for them to live here (Do Caleb Waller and his wife still live in a trailer which should have been given to a Jewish family???) or to do their avodah zarah in the vineyards, fields, nor even in the privacy of their own living spaces. (Ramba"m Hil. A"Z Chps. 9-10 - uncensored version)

What? Do you think these Christian "volunteers" have given up their false deity/false messiah, [or whatever] they happen to be calling him these days? When they say God, who do you think they really mean? They mean that composite, mythical figure of a bastard, yeshivah drop-out who went down to Egypt to learn the magical arts. Hello?!

In their OWN words:
We will share with them the Yesh"u* (Jesus) that we know.... Our goal and vision is to organize an infrastructure, with the participation of as many communities as possible, to labor and to work shoulder to shoulder with Israelis in the field, to bring the gospel of Yesh"u to [them] one at a time, one family at a time.

(*The "name" Yesh"u is actually an acronym יש"ו = ימך שמו וזכרו "May his name and memory be blotted out!")
The Land Of Israel
Besides the pollution of our Land with Christian avodah zarah, they are also preparing the way for themselves and their cohorts to settle here permanently. (God forbid!) I wonder if Rabbi Melamed believes that is also part of prophecy.

Notice that there isn't any Tribe of Esau. They get Mt. Se'ir.

Christians believe that one of two scenarios will occur:
1. The "Two Houses" crap, that they will inherit the north (Efraim, etc.) and accept upon themselves taryag misswoth (even though there are many which they are not allowed to observe, such as Shabbath), while Jews settle the South (Judea), and accept upon themselves their forbidden beliefs in their false deity/false messiah/intercessor, OR

2. That they will get everything, and only those who believe in their false deity/false messiah/intercessor, or whatever they are calling him these days, in order to feign benevolence, will inherit with them. (See Zech chps. 12-14) It has already begun in Jerusalem. This is parallel to the Yishma'elite (Arab/Muslim) belief that Jews did not do what The Almighty desired, and thus lost our inheritance.
Who has been feeding R' Melamed false information about Christianity?? (more likely than not native English speakers)
This is NOT about just about missionizing.

This is not just about polluting our Land with their avodah zarah.

This is about laying claim to OUR LAND, the Land which The Almighty promised to Am Yisrael, handed it back to us, when we did what we were supposed to in תש"ח/1948 ,תשכ"ז/1967, תשל"ד/1973, תשס"ו/2006.

The Arab vision of Israel: Non-existence.
When Arabs lay claim to OUR LAND, many rabbis suggest that they have the din (status) of the שבעת העמים. But when Christians do the same, then no? Why not?

Could it be because of money? Or perhaps, it is because these native English speakers, feeding information to Rabbi Melamed and others, are so overjoyed by the love and acceptance of goyim, they feel like they have really accomplished something? They feel like they have finally won the battle, they never won while in galuth (exile). But, this battle is simply a result of the galuthi Jews unending, co-dependent search for external validation for our communal self-esteem, not to mention our existence.

This mentality of allowing ones feelings, ones hashqafah (preconceived perspective), to blind ones eyes from seeing what the halakhah really is, what the Torah really says, is exactly like the Leftists' "feelings" that helping the Arabs (who want to annihilate us) is the right thing to do.

Both are the Western/galuthi approaches.

Let us not forget that the weapon of Yishma'el may be the sword (or missile or bomb - לא עלינו), but the weapon is Esau is the mouth and tongue, like the pig which sticks out its split hooves, and makes a chewing motion, pretending to be kasher (Midrash, Parashath Shemini). Esau's mouth smiles; and his tongue lies! It has many faces! Rabbi Melamed would do well to revisit one of the very sources he cites, the Kol HaTor**, and look up what it states about those Jews who align themselves with Esau.

The Sukkah
Rabbi Melamed mentions a connection between the Christian infiltrators whom he calls "volunteers," and the Festival of Sukkoth. After all Sukkoth is called Hag HaAssif (Festival of Gathering). Odd that he neglected to mention the very well-know midrash which actually does connect non-Jews with this festival, especially since it is prophetic. This midrash from the Talmud (TB Avodah Zarah 2b-3a) goes like this....
On the dreaded, final Day of Judgment, the goyim cry out to The Almighty for one last chance to demonstrate their readiness to accept His Torah. The Almighty eventually decides to give it to them. He gives them one misswah to perform, the misswah of Sukkah. The goyim immediately go out and build sukkoth on their rooftops.

Then The Almighty brings a heatwave. The goyim leave the sukkah, and kick it, demonstrating just how much they despise The Almighty's misswoth.
Rabbi Melamed also cites the Vilna Gaon, independently of the Kol HaTor. The Vilna Gaon also teaches that both the misswoth of Sukkah and the settled of the Land of Israel are done with the entire body (Itturei Torah).

May Christians leave and kick the sukkah speedily in our days!

And like the sukkah, may they leave OUR LAND, soon as well, and take their avodah zarah pollution with them!

B"H - Reading Melamed one can acclaim: "Sukot is my favorite, the holiday of inter-religious dialogue and love: Love, love, love, all you need is love! Love is all you need, ye, ye, ye!"

Where are all the other Rabbanim of Yehuda and Shomron (let's leave the rest of country's Rabbanim out of this for the moment)?!?!

How about the people of the communities pounding on the doors of their respective Rabbanim to get together and present their objections to Rav Melamded without mincing words what a catastrophe he is bringing upon the country.

Posters shmosters. The people have to rise with whatever sane leaders still remain and not tolerate this any longer!

Kumu!

Amen! Their 'success' is dependent upon evil Jews or Erev Rav who facilitate them and they are without exception Anglo Jews from Am-reika - a pox on them all!!

There are no NEW xians. They all still believe in and follow the same book which they call the "New" testament.

See video here for the ones who are honest about their agenda. These in Israel share that agenda, but they are keeping a low profile until they get their base of operations established here in the Shomron. G-d forbid!

They know it's a war and we know it's a war, when will the clueless rabbi admit it's a war??? And that he and all those Anglo-evil-Jew/Erev Rav are traitors among us!!!???
