There are going to be no more Facilitated Communication messages
As you know, if you’ve been with me for a while, I’ve had a very convoluted relationship with the autistics over the years.
I won’t rehash all the history – I’ll stick the relevant articles at the bottom of this post, for you to take a look at – but I basically moved from total obsession and believing every word they said as the gospel truth, through disillusionment with their unremittingly negative viewpoint that seemed to go directly against Azamra and the optimism of Breslov and chassidut, and then into mild confusion, as a few months ago they started putting out messages that Rabbi Berland is Moshiach ben David.
As you can see from THIS post, I came to the conclusion before all these announcements about the Rav being the hezkat, or ‘suspected’ Moshiach, that the autistics were reliable for present and past statements, but totally unreliable for any statement about the future.
This was based on the very clear psak din the autistics received from Rav Shteinerman, z’tl, which stated that the autistics were there to give chizzuk to Am Yisrael, but shouldn’t be asked any questions in relation to trying to divine the future – which is totally forbidden.
So, I had no problem whatsoever with all their pronouncements that Rabbi Berland is hezkat Moshiach, because anyone with eyes in their heads can see that.
When R’ Mendel Kessin puts out a shiur explaining that the Moshiach will be using the letters of the Torah at such a high level no-one will understand what he’s really saying – who comes to mind, except Rabbi Berland? Ironically, the people who are stuck in galut, mentally and physically, used the incredible complexity of some of the Rav’s conversations as a ‘sign’ that he isn’t the real deal.
Because they have a vested interest to stay stuck in galut, mentally and physically, and in a million, billion years they aren’t going to accept a Moshiach who they’ve spent years dissing and speaking lashon hara about.
So anyway, much of the what the autistics have said in the past has rung true, and probably was true. But their predictions about the future – have ALWAYS been problematic.
Which brings me to the crux of this post.
Over the last couple of months, Shuvu Banim has been posting up a few of the messages from Ben Goldin, because the Dani18.com website basically got cold-feet after a whole bunch of autistic-fanatics turned on them, after they posted up the message saying Rabbi Berland was David ben Moshiach.
So then, the messages had no outlet, except the Rav Berland site (I wasn’t interested in posting them up, regularly, because I don’t buy in to the ‘prophecy’ aspect, as explained.)
But even then, there seemed to be a clash occurring between the autistics’ predictions of imminent war and armageddon – which lets be honest, seems so darned obvious, doesn’t it? – and Rabbi Berland’s insistence that the wars will only be in 200 years.
The Tzaddik is sweetening things all the time.
I can tell you first-hand, the Rav has said that all these hundreds of prayers that are going up on the ravberland.com site are sweetening things in a world in an unprecedented way. Which is great news, because there are still another 1,000 to translate….
But I digress. The point is, that the autistics don’t know the future, and have a very negative outlook, and Rav Berland does know the future, and has an optimistic outlook (mostly, except when the judgments loom very large and need an awful lot of self-sacrifice and prayer to sweeten.)
Last week, the autistics told the facilitators they were stopping giving messages, from this this point on. They’d done their job, and announced that Rabbi Berland is Moshiach ben David (suspected…). When the facilitators double-checked this with the Rav, he told them to stop, at least for now, and he added that not everything that the autistics say is true. In particular,
The wars are only going to be in 200 years time.
Does anyone really know what this means? Nope. Does it seem obvious? Nope.
But here’s what I’ve been noticing, lately. The State of Israel has been doing its very best to subtly spark off another war with our neighbors to the North. I know that doesn’t look so obvious, but that’s what is happening. And each time, something is stopping the lit fuse from reaching the explosives.
Trump turns his planes around from bombing Iran when they are already in the skies….
Hezbollah launches reprisal attacks that don’t hurt anyone and barely do any damage…
Hamas inexplicably calls off its massive rocket attacks on the South after just a day or two…
None of this makes any sense.
Now, why would the State of Israel WANT a war right now? Great question! Basically, they are looking for a pretext to flatten Iran before Iran has completed its preparations to nuke Israel.
And then there is all the deeper psychological need for the secular State to be permanently at war, because that’s the big excuse they use for why they need to crush the charedim, and force everyone into the army, and continue to operate Israel like a police state cum secular dictatorship.
If there’s a war, they can take over the government and install a military dictatorship, using the war as a pretext – so it doesn’t matter, then, if the chareidim and the religious become the majority in Israel, because they can still stay in power undemocratically.
The last thing the people who are really ruling Israel today want is peace, because peace would weaken their grip on the country, on the Israeli psyche, and on the reins of power. So, they keep trying to spark a war… and their efforts keep flopping.
So, war only in 200 years.
But the Rav has said absolutely nothing about the natural disasters being ‘wrong’. So, keep an eye on all the volcanoes, earthquakes, hurricanes and floods going on in the world, and particular in Iran and the US.
Radical change is still a-coming to the world. But in a very different way than most people think.
