Yosef Rising

It happens quickly.  One leader falls and another begins to rise to the challenge. 

We are standing in what is known as Yemot HaMashiach Ben Yosef.   The days of Mashiach ben Yosef. Within this era there is a paradigm being played out...the Shaul vs. David relationship is unfolding before us.  Every leadership transition has to have this paradigm and we now see it taking place.

Bibi who believes he is the predetermined leader set to herald a State of Israel that is both accepted and strong represents the finest of the previous ruling order, but that is what it is; a ruling class that does not see itself as having a divine mandate, but is satisfied in ruling for the sake of ruling. No matter how much he wants to do the right thing, Bibi is a product of a State of Israel without redemption as it's goal.  This is Shaul who could not defeat Amalek, because he could not differentiate between his rule as the King of Israel and that of another King. 

Then there is Naftali Bennett. He has been outside the system, connected to the new world; the one which is leaving behind the constrictive nature of our hegemonic world order.  Hi Tech success, grass roots leader, young and forward thinking.  He is of course the former Chief of Staff for Bibi and now he is rising.  His role is that of the David within the quest to be Mashiach ben Yosef. He offers a course towards a redemptive paradigm.  Technology and Spirit.  A true tikkun instead of continued malaise driven by empty words and slogans. He is set to take the mantle of Mashiach ben Yosef from the Shaul.

The country is changing.  Old ways are melting, barriers falling, something new is happening, a Yosef is rising and rising very fast.
