Confronting the Truth

Parshas VaYigash: Rav Moshe Shternbuch -

The Medrash says that when Judgement day comes, we will not be able to stand up to the "Tochacha" - the rebuke from Hashem. We learn this from the Shvatim who couldn't bear the embarrassment of learning that Yosef was alive. 

Rav Moshe Shternbuch says that we see from here that the most painful rebuke is not a good screaming at, but rather being forced to confront the truth. Yosef did not scream or threaten, rather he softly told them that he is their brother whom they tried to destroy. 

Upon seeing how wrong they were, they experienced the worst embarrassment of their lives.

Similarly says Rav Shterbuch in the name of the Baal Shem Tov HaKadosh,the pasuk in Tehilim says, "Kel Nekamos Hashem". At the end of time Hashem will avenge those who have sinned against him. How? 

The pasuk continues "Kel Nekamos Hofia". Hashem's revenge is simply to appear! 

After all of history when Hashem finally reveals Himself openly to the entire world, everyone will be be mortally embarrassed when they grasp the lowliness for each and every one of their sins.

At the present time, the End of Days, Yisrael will confront an unprecedented evil. This is because all the souls who ever lived on this planet are out of Guf (something like 7 1/2 billions) for the purpose of being judged during Yom haDin.
A large part of this humanity hates Yisrael. They are those souls who will be annihilated after the Judgment.
The battle between light and darkness, good and evil, is the paragon of all confrontations. We see already the assaults Yisrael is facing now.
There are less than 2 weeks when the trigger of the hugh confrontations manifests. The Obama Nachash starts it all.
Mashiach is watching. Powerful prayers will be uttered at the proper time. The players of the End Times events are already on the scene. Be humble, sincere in your hearts and you will be saved.

Mashiach's defense of Yerushalaym triggers the last phase of Gog from the land of Magog war, says Chaim Chafetz. On 15 January 2017 the evil of the 70 nations in Paris will confront the Truth. Let's see the outcome.
