Rav Pinto: Coronavirus and all the disasters are happening because the geula is close – and how it’s connected to Rav Berland
The famous kabbalist Rabbi Yoshiyahu Yosef Pinto, shlita, is the head of the ‘Shuva Yisrael’ group of institutions located in Israel and around the world, and also the Av Beit Din of the Jewish community in Morocco.
Rav Pinto is well known for his ruach hakodesh, and for his ability to predict the different events happening around the world.
On January 6, 2020, we put up a post from Rav Pinto translated into English, where the Rav said:
“On Shabbat, I had a dream that was not simple, that there stands ready to be a big shock in the world, on the scale of the murder of Yitzchak Rabin, or September 11, on a very difficult scale, and difficult things which will happen to the enemies of Israel’.”
You can see the full post HERE.
Recently, Rav Pinto put out the following message:
“You should know, tzaddikim, that we are at the ikvata de’moshicha (footsteps of Moshiach) – we know lots of things.”
Rav Pinto then referred to many of the different signs of the geula that he predicted would occur before they actually happened;
“Remember, we said that that the man would be murdered – he was murdered. [This is referring to Qasem Suleimani, head of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.]
“Remember, we said that there would be a big plague. [This is obviously referring to the Coronavirus epidemic.]
Before we continue with the words of Rav Pinto, shlita, let’s first also recall some of the words of the famous kabbalist Rabbi Amos Gueta, from Netanya.
Rav Gueta said:
“Rabbi Berland has taken everything upon himself – he’s taken the suffering of all of the Jewish nation upon himself.”
Rav Gueta continued:
“A few of the tzaddikim tried to relieve some of the suffering that Rabbi Berland took upon himself in a spiritual way, but Rabbi Berland wasn’t prepared for any other tzaddik to help him in this matter.”
One of the visitors to Rav Gueta then asked him:
“What, so you are praying and Rabbi Berland isn’t allowing the prayers to ascend?”
Rav Gueta answered:
“The prayers are ascending, Hashem is prepared to listen to us, and to relieve him of the suffering, but Rabbi Berland isn’t prepared that we should help him in this matter. He wants to do everything by himself.”
These are the words of the holy Rabbi Amos Gueta, shlita.
Let’s return to what Rav Pinto tells us to expect next:
“We are saying that in approximately two months’ time, there will be a big war – there will be a war.
“We are on the way to geula (redemption) – there will be a big financial crisis. The world is entering a period of time that is really not simple.
“And this situation is not going to end in a day or in a week, rather this is going to continue alongside Am Yisrael, and with the world, for a good few more than more months.
“HaKadosh Baruch Hu is shocking the world during this period of time, and the world is going to undergo a lot of shocks.
“HaKadosh Baruch Hu is changing the essence of the world during this time, all the ways of the world – everything is going to change, and is going to go in a different direction.
“And you should know, that this is something serious!”
Rav Pinto continued:
“Whoever strengthens himself in a very strong way, to go in the path of Hashem, and to strengthen himself with all his power to go in the way of the Torah, and to have yirat shemayim, the fundamentals that we’ve spoken about – they will be saved from the birth pangs of the Moshiach.
“And whoever doesn’t go in this path, they will be like water – rising and falling, falling and rising.”
For those who are close to Rabbi Berland, shlita, these words don’t come as a surprise.
For decades already, we’ve seen endless decrees arise, and the Tzaddik has been sweetening them by way of taking terrible shame and suffering upon himself, that is simply beyond human comprehension.
In the past, we have brought many examples on this site (and also in One in a Generation Volume II) where different kabbalists and tzaddikim (including Rabbi Chaim Dovid Stern and the late Milkman, Rabbi Chaim Perachia HaCohen, z’tl) explained where they could see very harsh decrees gathering on the horizon, but Rabbi Berland managed to sweeten them by taking tremendous suffering upon himself.
Recently, the kabbalist and the tzaddik Rabbi Menashe Amon added his voice to this chorus when he said that:
“Rabbi Berland is taking suffering upon himself for us, and we’re still talking about him and suspecting him of things?!”
Now we’ve reached a new point in history, in relation to the process of Am Yisrael’s redemption.
Already, for some time, we’ve ceased speaking in hints about “tzaddikim”. The holiness of Rabbi Eliezer Berland, shlita, is becoming more and more obvious.
The messages in the things that are happening to us, and the expectations of what is about to come are being set out by people on all sides of the religious Jewish spectrum, from Rav Kanievsky, shlita, via Rav Dov Kook, amongst others.
HaRav Avraham Baruch, shlita, said that Avraham Avinu cried that the geula would be held off in order that another Jew would be saved and redeemed, and that the redemption won’t come with terrible, harsh judgments, chas v’shalom.
If we don a different set of glasses, and adopt a different perspective about what is happening to us both individually, and also generally to the Jewish nation, we will understand why Rabbi Eliezer Berland, shlita, is taking upon himself apparently ‘illogical’ circumstances, like those he currently finds himself in.
And then, we will pray that the Tzaddik will succeed, and that he will complete what he has set out to do, in relation to bringing about the redemption of Am Yisrael b’rachamim, (mercifully). Praying for the Tzaddik is the same as praying for the whole nation of Israel, as we’ve covered before elsewhere.
Rabbi Berland recently requested that we should say 7 Tikkun HaKlalis every day until Pesach. Even if we can’t say 7, every single additional Tikkun Haklali recited helps to make all the difference.
The Rav also requested that we should say the names of the 12 precious stones on the ephod 7 times a day, too, as follows:
אֹדֶם פִּטְדָה וּבָרֶקֶת נֹפֶךְ סַפִּיר, וְיָהֲלֹם לֶשֶׁם שְׁבוֹ, וְאַחְלָמָה תַּרְשִׁישׁ וְשֹׁהַם, וְיָשְׁפֵה
Odem, pitdah, baraket, nofech, sapir, yahalom, leshem, shvo, achlamah, tarshish, shoham and yashpeh.
