The 2020 presidential race between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden is more than just politics. It’s a spiritual battle with End-of-Days implications explains acclaimed author and lecturer Rabbi Mendel Kessin in a recent lecture.
According to Rabbi Kessin, The Jewish people are in the latter stage of the final redemption – that of Edom, the most drawn out of the four previous exiles: Babylon, Greece, Persia, Edom/Rome.
According to Rabbi Kessin, The future ending of the ‘Edom exile’ is foretold in Jacob’s dream of the angels climbing up and down a ladder to heaven.
He had a dream; a stairway was set on the ground and its top reached to the sky, and angels of Hashem were going up and down on it. (Genesis 28:12)
The four angels represent the four exiles. The angel representing Edom’s exile went up but didn’t go down.
The reason why Edom/Rome seems to persist is because as the Rabbi explains, there are two variations of Eisav (Esau) and his role in the final redemption – the “first stage” Eisav who represents evil empires such as Babylon, Greece, and Persia. But then Rabbi Kessin adds there there is a “last stage” Eisav who represents the “good side of Eisav”. The rabbi adds that President Trump is “in many ways is reincarnation of Marcus Aurelius” who was (Roman emperor 211–217) who was known to be an ally of the Jewish people.
This is learned from a prophesy given to his mother, Rivka, during her challenging pregnancy. According to the rabbi when Jacob asks G-d why the fourth angel did not climb down, God reassures him that He, (God himself),will transform Eisav from an enemy of the Nation of Israel into their assistant, bringing the prophecy to fruition. This is the concept of “stage 1 Eisav ” and “stage 2 Eisav.”
The rabbi then explains that President Trump is the “stage 2” Eisav and is not only the “good within Eisav” but also “part of a messianic process.” He then relates that the fact that the numerical value of Donald Trump is ‘Messiah son of David’ which proves that he plays an integral role in the Messianic process.
Highlighting the improvements Trump made to America’s unemployment rate, security and economy, the rabbi explains that the irrational “psychotic rage and hatred” of Donald Trump despite all of the good that he has done for America.
On the other hand, the rabbi notes that Joe Biden, the opponent that the Democrats chose to dethrone Trump is both “cognitively challenged” and has done “nothing significant in 44 years” in government. Compounding this with the fact that Biden wants to turn America into a “communist” country and his calling to defund the police as “irrational” as well.
All of this the rabbi explains is the Satan represented by Biden, the Democrats, Antifa etc trying to prevent the 1st stage Eisav from evolving into the 2nd stage Eisav. That’s because the Satan knows that the 2nd stage Eisav will have to enable the Jewish people to reach the final exile saying:
“America has become psychotic. But that’s a miracle. How do we understand that and not only that but like i said – the miracle is not only that Biden has nothing to offer as a candidate you know but look at what Trump has done – completely different. And the only answer to this when you’re looking at a choice – a psychotic choice which is a miracle you should know, when you’re looking at that it can only be one thing – that this is the end. That’s what it is. The Satan is dying. And it’s the end you see. What he is desperately trying to do is take Eisav from stage two which is the good in Eisav of which is Trump and he’s trying to replace it with Esav of stage 1, which is the evil base.Because he knows that stage two Eisav…will enable the Jewish people to do the tikkun (spiritual repair for the final redemption).”
