Fears for Tears: Part 1 & 2

In this session, AnaRina and Caz discuss some tough times ahead but also G-d's guidance and how repentance and a knowledge and consciousness of the Temple will turn the tables. 

Part 1:

Month of Tammuz
•    Moving into the core of the fast cycles
o    Fast cycles connected to Temple
o    4 fasts (not Yom Kippur)
    10 Tevet, 17 Tammuz, 9 av, 3 Tishrei
    Zechariah 7 vs Zechariah 8 (Fast to feasts, not yet, why? You are not mourning. You are not internalizing, you don’t even know what you are missing) - What can we do to move forward?

•    4th Biblical Month (counting from Nissan)
•    Tammuz – Babylonian name: Yechezkiel 8:14 (woman weeping for Tammuz)
o    Whole chapter about the disservice done in the Temple 
o    Chapter 8: differentiation between the House of Israel and the House of Judah  - this chapter shows us why G-d's presence left His house.
(Archaeology confirms why we see a presence of the House of Israel just before the Babylonian Exile, when the 10 Ten Tribes were already exiled during the Assyrian exile.)
o    Chapter 9-10 describes how G-d's presence left the Temple and the World.
REMEMBER: G-d's Presence left the House (Temple) and our world before the destruction of the FIRST TEMPLE and the Babylonian Exile. The Second Temple DID NOT host the Ark of the Covenant. 

PART 2:
•    3rd of Tammuz: Moon and Sun stood still
o    Joshua 10:13-14 (And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the nation had avenged themselves of their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jashar? [Sefer HaYashar, still exists today and is studied by the Jewish People. It fills in a tremendous amount of gaps that are left open in the TANAKH. ] And the sun stayed in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day. And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the L-RD hearkened unto the voice of a man; for the L-RD fought for Israel. {S})
o    G-d will hold worlds back for you to fulfill your purpose! We also discussed this in last month’s podcast: Hezekiah, when the King of Assyria was held up to give King Hezekiah time to complete his reform.
G-D'S DELAY IS HIS GRACE TO GIVE YOU TIME TO GET YOUR STORY STRAIGHT!
o    NASA study proves (this day as well as the account with king Hezekiah 2 Kings 20:11, adding up to a one missing day)
•    17th of Tammuz (This year 9th of July)
o    Hotspots on the Hebrew Calendar. (Strong/Positive vs Weak/Negative)
o    17 Tammuz
  main fast – Breaching of the walls. BUT
    Tammuz (idol worship root)
  Golden Calf, causing Moshe to break the tablets
    FIRST TEMPLE: Offerings were suspended (walls were already breached on the 9th)
    SECOND TEMPLE: Walls were breached
    Torah scroll burned (roman period) and idol placed in the Temple

 

Fears for Tears: Part 3

In this session, AnaRina and Caz discuss some tough times ahead but also G-d's guidance and how repentance and a knowledge and consciousness of the Temple will turn the tables. 

Part 3


o    Fast on 17 Tammuz 
 [3 weeks (9 Days)] 
 9 Av
o    21 Day period (Daniel)
o    9 Days 
    1st of Av: Aharon HaCohen died
    Sacrifices ceased (2nd Temple Period). We don’t eat meat for 9 days


o    The month of Av: 5th month
o    When Av enters our joy is diminished. (opposite of Adar when our joy is increased)
o    9th of Av: Again – a cluster of events: Main event (destruction of the FIRST AND SECOND Temple)


o    What lead up to it?
o    The sin of the spies 
    Note that the two leaders with a different spirit were Joshua (Yosef/Ephraim) and Calev (Judah)
    The whole generation had to die out in the desert. Same excuses that we see today: I cant’ move now, can’t do faith jumps now, I have to be responsible for my children…. Numbers  14:31 "Your children, however, whom you said would become a prey—I will bring them in, and they shall know the land which you have rejected"
* You have to get out of your COMFORT ZONE


o    9 Av in history (A review)
o    What happened in world history?
o    The First Crusade officially commenced on August 15, 1096 (Av 24, AM 4856), killing 10,000 Jews in its first month and destroying Jewish communities in France and the Rhineland.[9][11]
o    The Jews were expelled from England on July 18, 1290 (Av 9, AM 5050).
o    The Jews were expelled from France on July 22, 1306 (Av 10, AM 5066).
o    The Jews were expelled from Spain on July 31, 1492 (Av 7, AM 5252).
o    Germany entered World War I on August 1–2, 1914 (Av 9–10, AM 5674), which caused massive upheaval in European Jewry and whose aftermath led to the Holocaust.
o    What happened in modern-day history:
o    On August 2, 1941 (Av 9, AM 5701), SS commander Heinrich Himmler formally received approval from the Nazi Party for "The Final Solution." As a result, the Holocaust began during which almost one-third of the world's Jewish population perished.
o    On July 23, 1942 (Av 9, AM 5702), began the mass deportation of Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto, en route to Treblinka and other death camps.
o    The Israeli disengagement from Gaza began in the Gaza Strip, expelling 8000 Jews who lived in Gush Katif; August 15, 2005; 10 Av, 5765.
