numerology Rabbi Raskin, my name is Raphaella I was so pleased to hear your teaching on these numbers, last week Thursday I was watching the news on the war now taking place. It made me so upset my heart was crying for Israel. I asked G-D why is the world in such a upside down state and I asked Him to please show me why I wanted to see. Then I fell asleep and I saw a rip opened, I looked through the opening and saw the #s 27,9, and 17then the hole shut and I awoke wrote down the #s and went back to sleep, I had another dream where I was in the bottom of the ocean and saw a man with the body of a man but the face of a beast trying to swim to the surface . It seemed as if I tried to stop him but could not and I awoke. I know in my heart G-D was showing me something but I can't quite get it. You see about 14 years ago after intense prayers G-D spoke to me through my vocal cord His voice was so loud it filled the room, He said I want you in Israel, my stomach and my chest along with my throat move.

this year 5774 5774 is the gematria of the pasuk in Shmuel !! (7:10) 10. "And I will appoint a place for My people, for Israel, and I will plant them, and they will dwell in their own place, and be disturbed no more; and the wicked people shall not continue to afflict them as formerly."
Tisha av 5774 is the gematria of Melachim ! 8:29: "That Your eyes may be open toward this house night and day, toward the place which You said, 'My Name will be there;' to listen to the prayer that Your servant will pray toward this place." May Hashem bring the Bais hamikdosh now. Reply

13=1 13 equals the word echad which means 'one' or 'ahava' which means love. In other words, our love to the one G-d! Reply

Let's reveal Mochiach 'now' Rabbi Raskin, to say thanks to you is short, we should all thank G-d for the words that He implant in your heart, for you are helping women, Jewish, converses and non' Jews around the world, to reveal the Moshiach now, by looking beneath the surface, and softly unveil the full and complete redemption, that it is being so near, waiting to be reveal. For today I will not sit on the floor but I will lay on the floor, mingling the words in my mouth and transform them into words of joy and celebration, and make them light so angel Matot, will have for once and ever a bag that will be easier to lift up, and be heard in full, and complete by our almighty in the highest of high. Let the swift of this union and true of this love show the fruits as we speak, and His blessings pour upon all of us.

Tishea be av The 3000 holy innocents went to heaven leaving their young daughters bound for Sephardi on a ship, landing somewhat near modern day Barcelona. Today's Sephardim are descended from these ancestors who were raised in the wealthiest section of Jerusalem. This occurred in the year 69. Reply
