You can hear both of those messages for yourself in Hebrew HERE (and if you have any pertinent information you can add to what I've covered in this post, feel free to post them in the comments section.) The first recording is not so clear to understand (at least, for me...) so there may well be more information or details that can be filled in.
Here's the gist:
The person interviewing Rav Avraham Baruch Moshe explains that the Gemara says that right before Mashiach comes, there will be a period of time when 'talmidei chachamim are tried'.
The Rav responds by saying..."Everyone in Am Yisrael is obligated to protest on behalf of the kavod of the tzaddik [Rav Eliezer Berland."
He re-emphasises that in order to cancel the gezeira, we must protest on behalf of the kavod (honor) of the tzaddik. Another speaker adds in that Rav Badani (whom they emphasize is not Breslov) recently released a statement saying: "Whoever speaks badly about Rav Berland will fall to Gehinnom."
He says that...everyone must say aloud (b'peh) that:
'We don't accept it' [i.e. the terrible, shameful treatment of Rav Berland] and 'that we don't believe it' [i.e. the slanders and lies being spread about him] and 'that we protest'. And then from Shamayim, the gezeira will be cancelled. They conclude that Rav Abuchatzeira from Nehariyah says that Rav Berland is a "malach Hashem Tzvaot" - an angel of God.
In a seperate message, Rav Yosef Berger explains that the Sitra Achra is trying to take Am Yisrael from the Truth and make Am Yisrael confused.
He then speaks out against the false allegations being made against Rav Berland, before explaining how much Rav Berland has helped people via kiruv, etc, and re-emphasising how holy he is.
Rav Berger continues that what is occurring right now is an attempt at confusion--bilbul--and therefore we have "an obligation to know who this tzaddik is and not surrender before this frustration that is coming from these tameim [impure ones]."
He explained that one of the Rabbis who spoke wrongly about Rav Berland this week must do teshuvah, saying that: "He [i.e. the Rabbi] hears tamei words from tamei people!"
Rav Berger continues: "I will not bow before Baal, this avodah zarah of these Internet sites, of the heretical news, that they all the time only lead to coldness, mockery, and weakening so that we'll not believe in Hashem and Moshe His servant.....this is the war of the End of Days, this is a war which Hashem wants to see who believes in Him, His Torah and His leaders...."
He continues by giving over a very strong message that everyone should believe Rav Berland and all the gedolei Yisrael who support him. He says that Rav Berland is trying to atone for our sins and (all that follows in quotes is a direct quote in translation:)
"....we should pray for him, Rebbe Eliezer ben Etya, that Hakodesh Baruch Hu should protect him and save him from the Sitra Achra [Dark Forces], and from the tumah [spiritual impurity], and from the cult of the Erev Rav about whom the Zohar Hakadosh writes that they'll rule (take control of) until the end of the Geula. And Melech HaMashiach will come and cut off the Erev Rav--this is the same Erev Rav that controls now and tries to battle him.
Rav Berger ends by saying:
"Hold steadfast! Melech Hamashiach is ready to be revealed! These are the last nisayonot (tests) and the birur of the emet (clarification of the truth) about who is going to be found on the side of kedushah and who isn't, and is on the side of tumah."
Lastly, he emphasizes that Rav Shalom Arush and others are coming out in support or Rav Berland more and more strongly, and repeats again that this is the final test.
Rav Berger explains that the street on which the Ramle court is Rechov Tzionut on the corner of Rechov David Hamelech and Hashem is hinting to us that "until now, what was until now was just the klippah of the Zionism of the Erev Rav which is trying to battle Rav Berland, because he is the one who brought out of Erev Rav captivity all those same neshamot who he machzir b'teshuvah (brought back in teshuva)."
He explains that until now, Zionism has been ruling, but that David Hamelech is now ready to be revealed.
Then he's asked about his visit with Rav Chaim Kanievsky 10 days ago. He says that the visit took place in front of around 30 people and he asked Rav Kanievsky:
"Kavod Harav, is it true that this year 5776 is more likely than ever, more likely to be the year of Geula more than any other year?" And Rav Kanievsky said, "V'dai, v'dai (certainly, certainly) 5776 is yeshuah (spelled out in Hebrew letters), it's a year of salvation."
You can't sit on the fence with this one anymore. There are literally tens of Tzaddikim coming out in favor of Rav Berland, and the number of statements supporting him and decrying the terrible treatment he's being subjected to is multiplying every day. Let's spell this out: THESE HOLY RABBIS WOULDN'T PUBLICLY SUPPORT SOMEONE WHO WAS GUILTY OF THE THINGS RAV BERLAND IS BEING FALSELY ACCUSED OF.
Only people who have zero respect for our Tzaddikim, and zero respect for God and His Torah could even contemplate such a thing, however externally 'frum' they may appear.
That's why this is the last test before Moshiach, as said by Rav Berger, and also by Rav Chaim Dovid Stern before him.
If you want to pass the test start standing up for Rav Berland!
You can't hedge your bets anymore, and wait to see what's going to happen with the courts. The justice system and media in Israel are corrupt and rotten to the core. They aren't interested in the truth, as should hopefully be obvious to anyone who's been objectively following this story, and not just rushing to spread more lies and slanders. (Click HERE for more background on what's been going on with this story.)
You want to know what's really going on with Rav Berland? Ask God to show you - I guarantee if you really want to know where the truth lies, God will make that abundantly obvious. But first, you have to make an effort to connect to Him, and to talk to Him, and to attach to your neshama.
And that's the real test that's going on right now.
There's so much more that could be said about this. I'll end here for now, but I think that probably, there's going to be another explosion of slanders about Rav Berland soon, because God has to give everyone who believed the incredible lies that were published last time the chance to make sincere Teshuva, and to stand up for Rav Berland - and for God, and for all the Tzaddikim that are supporting him - this time around.
Are you going to pass that test?
