Gog u Magog and the 400 Year Anniversary of the ''Kli Yakar''

Many of us believe that currents events involving Iran / US are the beginnings of the final war of Gog u Magog.

The following text is by R' Dan Stochel

The geographical location was actually revealed for the start of the War of Gog and Magog, according to the Great Torah Sage, Rabbi Shlomo Ephraim Zatz"l from Luntschitz, Poland - a major Torah commentator known as the "Kli Yakar" who was niftar [passed away] in 1619.

In his holy book "Kli Paz," meaning "Vessel of Pure Gold" he wrote that the war of Gog and Magog will be centered around the area he calls: "the Hormuz."

Kli Paz was also written by another major mekubal - Kli Yakar the Gaon Aran Tzuba HaRav Shmuel Lanaiado from Venice. He also lived almost 400 years ago 1603-1657. He was a chaver of HaRav Chayim Vital and HaRav Galanti and the Holy Alshich in the Arizal's time. He saw these events and wrote them down in his commentary on Isaiah chapter 34.

As Chief Rabbi in Israel over 400 years ago, he wrote, ''there will be a great sacrifice in Basra'' quoting Isaiah chapter 34:1-13 about the last days during which the war of Gog and Magog should occur in a place nearby Basra named "Hormuz."

And the Navi Isaiah's 34:1-12, 63:1-6 foresaw "A sacrifice to Hashem is in Basra and it is a great slaughtering in the land of Edom" meaning to say that this will occur 'from above and descend,' many huge "Re'amim" roaming warrior-like beasts (aircraft/drones) and with them "Abirim" like powerful healthy bulls --(aircraft carriers) since the day of vengeance is for G-d and it is very near the completion of years of Hashem defending-protecting, fighting for Zion.

And the statement, ''the animals will descend with them'' means there will be many kings among the remaining nations whom will join with Edom (America) to help him (Trump) facilitate this slaughtering/sacrifice to Hashem in Basra - a country some distance from Bavel (modern-day Iraq) whose name is Basra and it is adjacent to Ashur (Syria) and Persia (Iran) in between the boundary of the land of Edom - called "Hormuz" - and today (Kli Yakar's time) it is under the rulership of Yishmael... "blessed is the one who knows the truth of these matters.״

However, it will be there in (the straits of) Hormuz where will be the Final War in the End of Days.

וְהֶרְאוּנִי דָּבָר מַבְהִיל בְּסֵפֶר 'כְּלִי פָּז' מִבַּעַל הַ'כְּלִי יָקָר' שֶׁהָיָה רֹאשׁ הָרַבָּנִים בְּאֶרֶץ יִשְׂרָאֵל לִפְנֵי כְּאַרְבַּע מֵאוֹת שָׁנָה (ישעי' לד) שֶׁהַ"זֶבַח לַה' בְּבָצְרָה" שֶׁיִּהְיֶה בְּמִלְחֶמֶת גּוֹג וּמָגוֹג יִתְרַחֵשׁ בְּמָקוֹם עַל יַד בַּצְרָה שֶׁשְּׁמוֹ הוּרְמוּז. וְנָבִיא אֶת דְּבָרָיו "כִּי זֶבַח לַה' בְּבָצְרָה וְטֶבַח גָּדוֹל בְּאֶרֶץ אֱדוֹם, וְיָרְדוּ רְאֵמִים עִמָּם וּפָרִים עִם אַבִּירִים וְגוֹ', כִּי יוֹם נָקָם לַה' שְׁנַת שִׁלּוּמִים לְרִיב צִיּוֹן". וְאָמַר "וְיָרְדוּ רְאֵמִים עִמָּם וְכוּ'', לְהַגִּיד שֶׁהַרְבֵּה מְלָכִים מִשַּׁאר הָאֻמּוֹת יִתְחַבְּרוּ עִם אֱדוֹם לְעָזְרָם. "כִּי זֶבַח לַה' בְּבָצְרָה", מְדִינָה יֵשׁ רָחוֹק מִבָּבֶל שְׁמָהּ בָּצְרָה, וְהִיא בֵּין גְּבוּל אֲשׁוּר וּפָרַס וּבֵין גְּבוּל אֶרֶץ אֱדוֹם, הוּרְמוּז, וְהִיא הַיּוֹם תַּחַת מֶמְשֶׁלֶת הַיִּשְׁמָעֵאלִים. וּבָרוּךְ הַיּוֹדֵעַ אֲמִתָּתָם שֶׁל דְּבָרִים, אוּלַי יִהְיֶה דֶּרֶךְ שָׁם הַמִּלְחָמָה בְּאַחֲרִית הַיָּמִים

Furthermore, during the Brit Bein Habitarim Hashem guaranteed to Avraham that his descendants would be freed from exile after 400 years!

This took place when Avraham was over 70 years old as is the present age of medinat Yisroel.

Moreover, when the current events with Iran's series of acts of terror and then openly blowing up 4 oil tankers (Re'amim) the latest two in the straits of Hormuz for all the world to see -- that intriguingly occurred exactly this year - the 400th year anniversary of the Kli Yakar's petirah in 1619!

It's no coincidence then that, Avraham and Lihavdil the Medinah, were both born in 1948 a time when what I call the "pre-redemption" process began.

Kli Yakar

As I commented 7 years ago on the previous post about this on this blog, the mentioning of Hormuz by the Keli Paz is merely incidental. The main idea is that he suggests that the war at the End of Days will possibly be near Botzra (Basra, Iraq). This is 588 miles away from the Strait of Hormuz (and the Island of Hormuz) as the crow flies. Those who want to consider that "close" can do so since everything's relative, but it's not exactly close.

Devorah said...

I almost linked to that old post about the Straits of Hormuz. Talk about a deja vu. We've been here before, seven years ago. It's so weird. I remain hopeful.

Devorah said...

I should also add that I discussed this with Dan Stochel who responded as follows:

Rabbi Yekutiel Fish who translated it back 7 years ago when Rabbi Glazerson found it as well in his code searching

In response 7 years ago, it was delayed by Hashem, I believe, because
1) He had to wait due Obama to leave office who would have only verbally threatened Iran to save face
2) He waited for his gilgul of Tov ShebiEsav in Trump to rebuild Americas military (over the last 2-1/2 years which we know Obama gutted wherever he could.

Now it can finally be done as Gemara Yoma 10a-b states:
A victory for Edom over Paras in the form of a Gezairat Hashem Who wills it so at the End of the Exile only several months before Mashiach gets up.

Devorah said...

And for those who want more, also see Response to Strait of Hormuz - another mention of this from seven years ago.

And for those who follow Rabbi Berland, see comment at this post: A Sign Predicted 40 Years Ago where Rabbi Berland tells us to expect Moshiach 5780 Cheshvan. Only months away. A lot of signs around right now. But again let me stress we cannot be sure of anything until it happens.

Great Post! Welcome back, how was the vacation?
Hope it was a good one and you’re well rested.

A U.S. military drone has been shot down in international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz by an Iranian surface-to-air missile, a U.S. official said on Thursday, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Earlier several Iranian state news agencies said a U.S. "spy" drone was shot down over the southern Iranian province of Hormozgan. State news agency IRNA even identified the drone as an "RQ-4 Global Hawk'.

Buckle up time.

Iran says it is ''ready for war''.

To Yaak, there are two locations described by several Meforshim on Basrah. Some identify Botzrah and some say Basrah is elsewhere. You serve simply to diminish the perception of the Kli Yakar that is in fact happening today in the strait of Hormuz as the Gaon from Vilna stated: ''When the Russian navy passes through the straits of the Bosphorus (which happened already online on You Tube by a Ukranian avid ship watcher in 2015) that you should put on your Shabbos clothes'' - meaning do Teshuvah with alacricity because Mashiach is coming very soon!

yaak said...

Anonymous, all I'm saying is that the Keli Yakar said nothing about anything happening by Hormuz. I don't want to diminish the perception of Mashiah coming soon - in fact I can prove to you that I do just the opposite - just that the Keli Yakar is not saying what he is reported to have said.

I will acknowledge, though, the interesting information that it is his 400th yahrtzeit.

New Stunning Zohar Dates on the 4th of Sivan, Shavuot, Moshiach Ellul-5779, Tishrei Cheshvan-5780 and Gog and Magog

Zohar Hadash Parshat Balak 65
Eliyahu said to Rabbi Shimon: “Oy Rebbe, oy Rebbe, how hard is this matter; and how long is this exile; and how much suffering upon suffering the haters of Israel have prepared [for the Jews] throughout this galut; and how much longer will these brutes rule, i.e. the Nations of the World; and how much more will they roar over their prey and devour Israel, each and every day, until the end of days?

P.S. just a reminder regarding this:

jayaxe said...

you have the wrong "kli yakar".... the "famous one... from Poland / prague who died 400 years ago... Luntzitz did not write a commentary on Navi / prophets...
the other sefer called kli yakar was written by Shmuel laniado who died in 1605.

Devorah said...

Yes Jayaxe you are correct, the earlier post linked to by Yaak quoting Rabbi Fish is wrong. The Kli Yakar was written by Shmuel Laniado as you can see in the picture of it in this blog post. Only Rabbi Shmuel Lanaido wrote that about Hormuz. He wrote many great things about our era 400-450 years ago [quoting Dan Stochel here - I am not the one with the knowledge of these sages !]

US warship destroys Iranian drone in Strait of Hormuz

Devorah said...

WASHINGTON (AP) — A U.S. warship on Thursday destroyed an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz after it threatened the ship, President Donald Trump said. The incident marked a new escalation of tensions between the countries less than one month after Iran downed an American drone in the same waterway and Trump came close to retaliating with a military strike.

Devorah said...

President Donald Trump said he will work with the U.K. government on a response to Iran’s seizure of a British oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz.

“We have a very close alliance with the U.K.,” Trump said at the White House on Friday as he departed for his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey. “I will be working with the U.K.”

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps announced that it seized the tanker on Friday, escalating tensions in one of the world’s critical energy chokepoints. A day earlier, the U.S. said one of its warships downed an Iranian drone, a claim Iran has rejected.
