I got a couple of comments and emails from people that made me think that SOMETHING has to be done to show God that we really care about what's going on with the enormous miscarriage of justice that's going on with Rav Eliezer Berland.
I know we're all so jaded from 'emergency messages about the world ending tomorrow' that never actually come to anything (thanks, autistics!) - but the messages coming out now are from REAL rabbis who don't have Facebook followings or big 'I have prophectic powers' reputations to keep going with the gullible masses.
I know, also, that we're all feeling so tired about 'waiting for Moshiach' - I mean, it's been a good 10 years already and he still didn't show up!! But again, this time round there are a number of big, real rabbis telling us that Rav Berland is the last test before Moshiach - and most of us are failing it really, really badly.
The Vilna Gaon said the following about the Erev Rav:
THE EREV RAV ARE BEHIND THE PERSECUTION OF RAV BERLAND!!!
So, if you want to fight the klipah of the Erev Rav, and avoid becoming a defactor partner with that klipah of the Erev Rav (as per the Vilna Gaon's words) - then YOU HAVE TO STAND UP FOR RAV BERLAND! And I've made it super-easy to do that now, by sticking a petition that you can sign on my side bar (top right) - more on this in a moment.
ALL THE REAL RABBIS ARE BEHIND RAV BERLAND 100%
"So difficult will it be to remain firm in faith and not to be misled by everyone's mistaken beliefs in the pre-Messianic era. At that time, many who call themselves religious leaders will preach falsehood...There will remain some truly religious individuals, but they will be very widely scattered."
To put this another way in the time preceding Moshiach, THE MAJORITY OF OUR LEADERS, BOTH IN THE RELIGIOUS AND SECULAR JEWISH WORLD, WILL BE FALSE, 'EREV RAV' TYPE LEADERS.
How is all this connected to what's going on with Rav Berland?
1) First of all, because when you are the real deal yourself, you know how real tzaddikim actually act, and you can spot the fakers and hypocrites a mile off.
2) Second, because these individuals have ruach hakadosh, and can see through to a person's innermost soul just by looking at them.
3) And third, because many of them congregate up in Shemayim (while they are still in their physical bodies...) to preside over Heavenly Courts and arrange things like Pidyon Nefesh, (redemption of the soul, usually done for sick people).
The fake rabbis don't do any of these things, AND they also know that the real rabbis know that they're fake, which is why they often don't mix with the real rabbis and are even 'anti' them.
Here's what some of the 100% guaranteed real rabbis have recently said about Rav Berland: (I could bring you literally tens of quotes, but these two give the flavor and I already stuck them up on nice little JPEGs).
REMEMBER: MOST OF OUR LEADERS WILL BE
'EREV RAV' BEFORE MOSHIACH...
(If you'd like a real-time example of the sorts of things fake rabbis do and don't do in relation to what's going on with Rav Berland, take a look at THIS POST.)
Real rabbis keep halachot - like not talking lashon hara, not reading the 'news' from Arutz 7 and J-Post, not discussing legal proceedings outside of a Beit Din, not rushing to judgment about things they've only heard rumours about. Erev Rav, by contrast, do all these things and more like:
By contrast, someone who respects Daat Torah, and who has emuna and emuna tzaddikim, and who is kind, truthful, humble and unconcerned about their own 'image' and influence, and what people are going to think about them, will go out on a limb to to stand up for Rav Berland, even if that's difficult for them (and let's be clear, this is a BIG TEST, so it is very difficult to do that at the moment, when all the rumours and false allegations are still flying around.)
But that's why it's a test.
And that's why it's the last test before Moshiach, and that's why it's so important that you take a stand and start supporting Rav Berland publicly - because someone with strong 'Erev Rav' tendencies just isn't going to do that.
It's the moment of truth.
And that's also why the kabbalists are seeing a huge decree forming in Shemayim in relation to how we've been treating Rav Berland, because it's a reply of what happened with the Erev Rav and the Golden Calf, when Am Yisrael let the Erev Rav pull them away from Hashem, belief in His Torah, and belief in his True Tzaddik, Moshe Rabbenu.
When we failed that test last time, in the desert, God wanted to destroy us and start over again, and only Moshe Rabbenu's pleading stopped Him. Still, the whole generation that sinned at the Golden Calf died in the desert, bar Calev and Yehoshua.
What's going on now, is a replay of that, and this time we have CHOOSE RIGHT! And stand up for Rav Berland, and all the tzaddikim that are supporting him, against the Erev Rav.
Sign the petition, and send it on to as many people as you can.
Tell people about all the amazing articles going up in English from huge rabbis on the Shuvu Banim website, describing what's really going on.
Stop listening to the Erev Rav-controlled news and media.
Actively protest the people, including the so-called 'frum' people, who are spreading slanders and lies around the internet without a second thought about how much damage they're doing.
Make teshuva for any doubts you've had, or negative things you've said about Rav Berland.
If you have a blog or Facebook page, link to the petition, link to all the articles explaining what's really going on with Rav Berland, and stand up for him! We only have this social media stuff in the first place to do good, holy things with them, and it doesn't get bigger, spiritually-speaking, than what's going on with Rav Berland.
FIGHT THE KLIPA OF THE EREV RAV! Because otherwise, when God finally gets around to dealing with them, you'll find yourself lumped firmly on the wrong side of the equation, and as the Vilna Gaon warns, it would be better for you if you'd never been born.
There are enormous, huge things at stake for Am Yisrael at the moment. If we pass this test, we really could have Moshiach and redemption this year. If we don't - destruction is looming ahead.
So take a deep breath, ask God to help you, and STAND UP FOR RAV BERLAND!!
