Laying the Foundation for World Rectification – Rosh HaShana and Succot
ONE ASPECT OF THE MAKKOS OF MITZRAYIM (water)
An aspect of guilt is beginning to set in among some American minds. “Weather wars” theorists claim Hurricane Harvey was engineered, “steered” toward Houston as a “weather terrorism” weapon. (blaming the “other”) Instilling this in their minds lays the foundation to be brought to the eventual realization that there is a Creator in the World and that Man’s actions are accountable. (Rosh Hashanah is when Mankind is judged, and Succot: on Hoshanna Rabba is when water is judged)
We are witnessing the non-believers devising ways and means to explain away how the Earth is seemingly being attacked by “climate change”. Gore is half right, in that the cause IS mankind, but not for what he thinks. The reason is that mankind is going against the Creator’s Will with their atheistic attitudes and behaviors. And the Nations of the World are against Eretz Yisrael and His Children, Am Yisrael.
WEATHER WARS or CLIMATE CHANGE
“WEATHER WARS” theorists claim Hurricane Harvey was engineered, “steered” toward Houston as a “weather terrorism” weapon“ Mike Adams of NATURAL NEWS states: [. . .] a growing number of observers, websites and analysts are concluding that Hurricane Harvey was “engineered” and made into a “weather weapon” through a combination of ground-based temperature manipulation tools and “chemtrail” seeding.
"Yes, it sounds absurd at first, until you realize that Al Gore tells us that human activity controls the climate every day. It’s called “climate change,” [. . .] Weather modification, in other words, has become the de facto belief of climate alarmists. The entire mainstream media routinely insists that hurricanes, droughts, floods, snowstorms and tornadoes are all unintentionally created by human activity.
"Adding to the intrigue of all this, Bill Gates announced serious funding for “seawater-spraying cloud machines” designed to generate rain-producing weather systems for targeted communities [. . .]
Mike Adams debunks this “weather wars” theory, but only goes so far as “Mother Nature”. He says, "The history of hurricanes shows that Mother Nature generates them without any human engineering at all.”
CLIMATE CHANGE or MOTHER NATURE?
The Name Elokim (G–D) is the Gematriah 86. It is also the Gematriah of HaTeva (the natural world i.e. “nature"). Elokim is obviously G–D's Name of Judgement, often Strict Judgement. [Aleph Lamed Hey Yud Mem Sofit = 86 and Hey Tet Vet Ayin is also 86.]
The gematriah of the word Kos (Kaf Vav Samech) is also 86. So each cup of wine at the (PESACH) Seder x 4 equals = 86 x 4 = 344 years, the number of years from the Covenant between the Parts when Avraham was 70 years old until we were enslaved in Mitzraim. It is from that Kos that we do not drink that the Ten Plagues of G-d's Wrath were poured out on Mitzraim. True, we take the drops of wine from the second Kos, but the second Kos is quickly refilled. The Grapes of G–D's Wrath come from the fifth Kos that we do not drink. There were an additional 86 or a fifth 86 years where we were enslaved and beaten through suffering in Mitzraim. Some say that Eliyahu drinks that Kos at the End of Days ....
מִי-זֶה בָּא מֵאֱדוֹם, חֲמוּץ בְּגָדִים מִבָּצְרָה, זֶה הָדוּר בִּלְבוּשׁוֹ, צֹעֶה בְּרֹב כֹּחוֹ; אֲנִי מְדַבֵּר בִּצְדָקָה, רַב לְהוֹשִׁיעַ. 1 ‘
Who is this that cometh from Edom, with crimsoned garments from Bozrah? This that is glorious in his apparel, stately in the greatness of his strength?'--'I that speak in victory of righteousness, mighty to save.’--
ב מַדּוּעַ אָדֹם, לִלְבוּשֶׁךָ; וּבְגָדֶיךָ, כְּדֹרֵךְ בְּגַת. 2 'Wherefore is Thine apparel red, and Thy garments like his that treadeth in the winevat?’--
ג פּוּרָה דָּרַכְתִּי לְבַדִּי, וּמֵעַמִּים אֵין-אִישׁ אִתִּי, וְאֶדְרְכֵם בְּאַפִּי, וְאֶרְמְסֵם בַּחֲמָתִי; וְיֵז נִצְחָם עַל-בְּגָדַי, וְכָל-מַלְבּוּשַׁי אֶגְאָלְתִּי. 3 'I have trodden the winepress alone, and of the peoples there was no man with Me; yea, I trod them in Mine anger, and trampled them in My fury; and their lifeblood is dashed against My garments, and I have stained all My raiment.
ד כִּי יוֹם נָקָם, בְּלִבִּי; וּשְׁנַת גְּאוּלַי, בָּאָה. 4 For the day of vengeance that was in My heart, and My year of (the Final) redemption has come.
An American Patriotic Song: Mine eyes have seen the Glory of the Coming of the L-rd. He has trampled out the Vintage where the Grapes of Wrath are Stored . . . . Americans have forgotten where their patriotic song comes from. It comes from the 5th cup of wine. The Name Elokim has five (5) letters.

ROSH HASHANA is when the Jews are judged.
SUKKOT is when Mankind is judged.
In the prophets as well as the Kabbalistic sources, we find that SUKKOT has a special relationship with the messianic era and a unique connection to the nations of the world. As the spiritual climax of the year, sukkot is full of deep allusions to the messianic era - the spiritual climax of world history.
The Vilna Gaon (Sefaria)
Another allusion to the connection between Sukkot and the Messianic era can be found in the Haftarah for Sukkot which describes the prophecy of the war of GOG and MAGOG.

Zechariah Ch 14
1) Behold, a day of the LORD cometh, when thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2) For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, but the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3) Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when He fighteth in the day of battle.
9 And the LORD shall be King over all the earth; in that day shall the LORD be One, and His name one.
11 And men shall dwell therein, and there shall be no more extermination; but Jerusalem shall dwell safely.
6 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations that came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
Many years ago the Previous Lubavitcher Rebbe said that in the era of Moshiach there will be disasters through water. This will bring the nations to a recognition of the power of G-d, preparing them for the revelations of the Redemption. Prophecy: Raging Waters
