Over on RavBerland.com, they just posted up another awesome translation of some of the Rav’s more recent comments about what is actually going on all around us.
Rav Berland has been dropping clues about all the ‘climate change’ that’s going to precede the coming of Moshiach for many months now, and to my knowledge, he’s the only real rabbi who is doing this. And you need a tremendous background both in Tanach and kabbalah, and also in climate change stuff itself to start picking up all his clues, and to try to figure it all out.
I don’t have the former, but I’m working on the latter, so let’s go through his latest words to see what we can try to figure out, together. The Rav’s words will be bolded, and my comments will be underneath.
It’s written in the Zohar that two years before the netz (end of days), the stars start to sing. A person needs to wake up two years before the netz.
The ‘song’ of the stars is electro-magnetic – it’s the pulse of life, it’s the pulse of all creation. If the stars are starting to ‘sing’ two years before the end, the geula, one of the things that means is that the electro-magnetic vibes flying around planet earth via cosmic rays, and a bunch of other ‘celestially inspired’ phenomena are going to lead to some very interesting developments down here.
Climate change, earthquakes and volcanoes erupting are all connected to this electromagnetism (as is human mental and physical health). That’s why every time there’s a huge spike in the Schumann Resonance, we all start feeling decidedly weird, emotionally.
So, this ‘singing’ has started now, and will continue for two more years until the geula starts in earnest. BTW, that matches up exactly with what the Rav said HERE, about the coming of Moshiach being a process that will last until 5781. Two more years takes us up to the cusp of 5781.
the ridicule of Hashem is arafel (fog, mist, haze)….
This is clearly a very deep, hard to understand passage (even in the Hebrew) but my best guess is that the people who are ‘ridiculing’ Hashem – we all know who they are – are going to have to deal with some serious hazey-fog-cloud thing.
To my volcano-obsessed mind, that could easily be an eruptive ash cloud, or a cloud of ‘laze’ – the dangerous lava-cum-haze that occurs when molten magma flows into the sea.
This is all referring to 50 seas…”And [God] said come until po (here).” Why is Yaffo (Joppa) called Yaffo? Because Hashem said ‘come until po’. And why is Haifa called ‘Haifa’? Also, because Hashem said ‘come until po’.
Yaffo, the ancient port of Joppa, is where the whale spat Yonah out. While Yonah was in the whale, he was also shown the entrance to sheol (purgatory / gehinnom) that was presumably on the ocean floor, in keeping with the idea we learned in THIS POST that the entrances to gehinnom are located in the desert, in the sea and in inhabited places.
Today, Jaffa has become Tel Aviv. Haifa is still Haifa. It’s very interesting that these are the only two cities that I know of, in Israel, to recently put up tsunami warning signposts all over the place.
God is the one who told the water to ‘stop’ and go no further. If the inhabitants of a city are ‘mocking’ or ‘ridiculing’ God (and we all know what that means) – then it seems like a midda-kneged-midda thing that just as they aren’t listening to God anymore, the sea could also stop ‘listening to God’ – resulting in some massive flood-type scenario.
The oceans were spreading out in all directions, the Mediterranean Sea was spreading out. In the time of Enosh, it spread out in the direction of Yaffo and Haifa, and after that, in the generation of the mabbul (great flood), it spread out in the direction of Gibraltar….
Enosh’s generation preceded Noah’s, and is considered to be the time of the Second World, after Adam and Eve. It’s a time when a third of the earth was permanently flooded as a result of that generation’s descent into idol worship. Here’s some of what our sources say about this time:
From Chazal: (Mechilta, Yitro, baChodesh 6)
At the time of Enosh God said, “You made an innovation and called others ‘gods’. I too will make an innovation, and call the waters of the sea.” And the sea rose and flooded one third of the earth.
From Brayshis Rabba 23:6:
In four ways nature changed in the time of Enosh. The mountains became rocky, the dead became subject to vermin, the faces of people became similar to apes, and men became subject to gremlins.
(No I don’t know what ‘gremlins’ are – this is taken from Rav Dovid Brown’s English translation in Mysteries of Creation. Any ideas what it’s actually referring to?)
Chazal tell us: (Shekalim 6:2, Braishit Rabba 23:7 and Yalkut Shimoni 2:543)
The Prophet Amos twice (5:8 and 9:6) declares that God ‘calls to the waters of the sea and spills them over the earth.’ The reiteration is not redundant; the ocean broke out twice and in these two surges the Mediterranean Sea came into being. The first time took place at the time of Enosh and the second at the time of the Dor HaFlaga [when the built the Tower of Babel].”
(There is then recorded a disagreement about which part of the world was flooded first, with some holding it was the shores of Eretz Yisrael first, then Calabria and the Barbary Coast, while others hold the opposite opinion. Rav Berland is going with the opinion that says first Israel, then Calabria was flooded.)
This is a good place to note that all this happened less than
5, 400 years ago.
This all happened AFTER Adam and Eve, so all that rubbish about massive earth changes only occurring in the ‘billions of years’ before man was first created it clearly baloney (if you believe the Torah is the living word of God.)
When we get up in the morning, and we see the new dawn, we see that the sunrise knows its place; “the four corners of the world are grabbed, and the wicked ones are shaken from it”. At the end, Hashem is going to shake off all the rashaim (evildoers). He’s going to turn everything over, and prevent the evildoers from seeing the daylight, and the deceitful limbs [He will] break.
This part is very hard to figure out….until you read Velikovsky who brings a whole load of evidence from folk traditions across the world that sun didn’t always use to rise in the east and set in the west. I’m bringing just a little bit here, to give you the picture (Worlds in Collision, Chapter 5, East and West):
Our planet rotates from west to east. Has it always done so? In this rotation from west to east, the sun is seen to rise in the east and set in the west. Was the east the primeval and only place of the sunrise? There is testimony from all parts of the world that the side which is now turned toward the evening once faced the morning.
This testimony comes from the Greek chronicler Herodotus (amongst many others), ancient Egyptians in the ‘Magical Papyrus Harris’, which talks of when ‘the south became north, and the earth turns over’, the Roman Pomponius Mela and a few others including the ancient Chinese, who say “that it is only since a new order of things has come about that the stars move from east to west.”
Again, Velikovsky has a whole, big chapter on precisely this subject, packed with sourced and footnoted references to different traditions that this happened within the last few thousand years.
We all know that quote that at the end of days God is going to shake the world like a blanket…Rav Berland is telling us that just as that happened in the past, and everything got ‘turned over’, it’s going to happen again in the future, and ‘shake off’ the evildoers.
Have you seen the fish in the sea? “Enquire of the t’hom (depths) to move about, and to disclose the shaarei mavet (the gates of death).” There [at the bottom of the ocean] are the gates where the Angel of Death walks around, and the Tzaddik rules over these gates.
The gates of death seem to be one and the same as the entrances to gehinnom that are located underwater. There are hundreds of thousands of volcanoes located underground – science has no way of even counting them. We know from THIS POST that volcanoes = entrances to gehinnom.
Rav Berland is telling us that the Tzaddik rules over these underground volcanoes, and that underground volcanoes is where the Angel of Death walks around, which again all kind of fits, doesn’t it?
Because the Tzaddik rules over these gates, a person can’t leave, [the Tzaddik] has total authority. So, Iyov (Job) was asked, ‘Can you rule over the gates of the Angel of Death? Can you stop the Angel of Death?’
“And you will see the gates of pitch-darkness”.
Now, how is the sun rising and shining? Every day, through a different window, who is causing it to rise in the East? The Tzaddik….If you know the secret of where the sun’s light derives from, then you’ll live for eternity.
Again, we can understand this much easier now we know the sun didn’t always rise in the east, and that the ‘gates of pitch-darkness’ are the ‘entrances to gehinnom’ that double-up as deep-sea underwater volcanoes.
There are two secrets that you need to know: To know where the light of the sun comes from, and where the gate and the path from where the light of the sun continues to shine – and then [if you know these two secrets], a person can live forever….
You need to uncover the treasure house of the snow, “and the treasure house of the hail, that I reserved for the time of siege, for the day before the war.” The hail doesn’t have any gate in the world….
Very deep stuff… but notice the reference to hail and snow. So many countries right now, all across the world, are dealing with massive hail on an ongoing basis, and also very unseasonal snow. (Parts of Canada had snow fall at the end of June, Sweden had snow after its hottest ever May, and South Africa last week was blanketed in snow.)
The ikkar (essence) is the dew drops, the dew of techiyat hametim (reviving the dead). Hashem wanted to reveal to Iyov the dew of reviving the dead….
Why was Korach called ‘Korach’? Because he was kerach (ice-cold)….Now, here, we have the greatest secret of all. “Connect the epochs of Kimah”. Kimah is 100 stars. When we see a star, it’s really 100 stars. How can you connect all these stars together? Only the Tzaddik [can do this].
“Or open the measures of Kesil.”
Can you take Kesil, and place it [where you want], and drag it to do what you want it to do? The Tzaddik can do this.
So, this is where it gets even more awesome, as Kimah and Kesil are the two stars that Hashem moved around in order to bring Noah’s flood.
The Rav is telling us that the Tzaddik can control these celestial objects, and so can ‘control’ what’s going on down here, on planet earth, with all the crazy climate stuff.
Did you ever wonder what happened to ‘Nibiru’, and all those end of the world predictions?
My best guess is that ‘the Tzaddik of the generation’ managed to move it out the way, or keep it in abeyance, somehow, and that everything really depends on us making teshuva and coming back to Hashem 100% and having emunat tzaddikim.
The people who make teshuva, and who stick close to the Tzaddik will make it through – just like they did at the time of Noah, and also when Moshe took the Jews out of Mitzraim. The people who don’t – won’t.
So please, please, please people, stop slagging off rabbis and big tzaddikim and believing all that cack about the world being 4.7 billion years old and massive earth changes only happening over eons.
They happen immediately, whenever God wills them to happen, and the best (and really only….) insurance policy is to stay close to a real tzaddik and to do your best to live life according to Hashem’s dictates, wherever you happen to be located, geographically.
We live in very interesting times.
 The Rav was referring to many of the concepts found in both the book of Iyov (Job) and in the Gemara, in his remarks on the constellations and stars. For example, "'Ash" or "'Ayish" is mentioned twice in Job, and has been identified with the Great Bear. The Gemara in Brachot 58b and says: “But for the heat of Kesil, the world could not endure, on account of the excessive cold of Kimah, and vice versa.”
‘Kimah’ the star (often associated with the Pleiades) is the source of cold in the world. Kesil the star (associated with Orion) is source of heat in the world. In Amos 5:8, Kimah is mentioned before Kesil. In Iyov 9:9, Kesil is mentioned before Kimah. The Talmud quoted above says that this means that God uses each constellation to balance the other. Pleiades keeps Orion from boiling the world to death; Orion keeps Pleiades from freezing the world to death.
Elsewhere, the Gemara explains how the stars Kimah and Kesil are directly related to the mabbul, which came about when God took two stars from one constellation and moved them to another, leading to Noah’s flood.
I’ll admit it: I’m completely obsessed with what’s going on in Hawaii right now, and it’s beyond strange that it’s not being covered better by the mainstream news. Ok, it’s not really – we all know mainstream news is of the ‘nothing going on here to make teshuva about, go back to sleep’ variety, but still, this is a very dramatic ‘nothing’ to be ignoring.
Last I heard, the lava had covered six of the 11 deep fracking wells that are part of the Puna Geothermal Plant. In case you don’t know what ‘fracking’ is (I also didn’t until about two days’ ago) here’s the explanation from Wiki:
“Hydraulic fracturing (also fracking, fraccing, frac'ing, hydrofracturing or hydrofracking) is a well stimulation technique in which rock is fractured by a pressurized liquid.
So to put this in other words, the Geothermal Plant has drilled 11 of these ‘fracking’ wells deep into the subterranean rock beneath Hawaii’s Big Island to access the gas there that they converted into 25% of Hawaii’s electricity.
(Read THIS for more helpful background on the pros and cons of fracking, and what we’re actually talking about here. Germany and France have banned fracking, the UK is sitting on the fence and America has some 30,000+ fracking operations currently open for business.)
No-one has any idea what would happen if lava, with an average temperature of 2000 degrees, would somehow ‘fall’ down these very deep wells. There are not unreasonable fears that it could cause an absolutely massive explosion if it interacts with the groundwater pumped in at very deep levels to expedite the fracking (which is short for ‘hydraulic fracturing’) – but nobody really knows!
Because no-one has ever been dumb enough to drill a fracking plant right next to an active volcano before.
This comes from the Wiki entry on volcanic gases:
“In explosive volcanic eruptions, the sudden release of gases from magma may cause rapid movements of the molten rock. When the magma encounters water, seawater, lake water or groundwater, it can be rapidly fragmented. The rapid expansion of gases is the driving mechanism of most explosive volcanic eruptions.”
So, who was dumb enough to drill a fracking plant next to Kilauea? Step forward: Ormat Technologies, Inc. If you go to the Ormat website, it seems like this is some sort of ‘grass-roots’ alternative energy firm that grew spontaneously out of the Nevada desert where it’s HQ is now located.
But if you do a little more scratching around, you’ll find this (from Ha’aretz in 2004):
“Ormat Technologies, which completed its initial public offering on Wall Street last week at a company value of over half a billion dollars, is not your typical Israeli offering in New York. In fact, Ormat is almost the exact opposite of the accepted profile for Israeli companies issuing overseas: It is not a high-tech firm; it is not new; and its owners are not young entrepreneurs.”
And Reuters, to name at least one media outlet covering Hawaii, is already telling its readers that Ormat Technologies is “Israeli controlled”.
If the Big Island of Hawaii doesn’t blow sky-high or split into pieces, then this probably won’t matter. But if things continue to melt down in Hawaii? If complications develop when molten hot lava drops down a few deep-drilled fracking wells? Well, it’s upsetting, to say the least, that the people who thought it’s a good idea to drill a fracking well next to an active volcano are obviously Jewish Israelis.
Fracking is a very controversial technique, because like all this cutting-edge technology that is so invasive, they don’t really know the full picture of what could happen as a result of doing it, or how they might be destabilising things, geologically.
Dutchsinse has been forecasting earthquakes pretty accurately on Youtube for years, and has a model that often makes much more sense than the ‘official’ stuff you get told about seismology and volcanoes. One of his interesting – and completely intuitive – observations is that seismic activity is drawn to weak points in the crust, like deep sea oil rigs and fracking operations.
There are thousands of these things all over the world now, and it’s a very interesting question as to whether these operations are actually causing earthquakes, as their opponents suggest, or just acting as the focal point for existing seismic energy that kind of surfaces in those areas that are weak points in the earth’s crust.
This short (4 min) video from Dutchsinse covers a huge landslide that happened next to a fracking plant in Colorado 4 years ago, that was completely unreported by the mainstream media as being at all connected to the fracking operation going on. He explains neatly what fracking is, and how it can cause some serious issues.
Big earthquakes and volcanic explosions are usually preceded by lots of little earthquakes, or ‘swarms’. Before Kilauea started oozing lava all over Leilani estates, 24 miles away to the East, there were a bunch of ‘swarms’ there for many weeks.
Swarms happen all the time, but it’s the intensity and the duration, and whether they start building up in magnitude over time, that suggest that something might be starting to kick off, underground.
A few weeks’ back, some unusual swarms were detected by the volcano in the Canary Islands, and also by Mayotte, a volcano that has officially been ‘dormant’ for around 5,000 years. Two days ago, Mayotte had a bunch more swarms, now up in intensity ranging between 4-5 on the richter scale. As soon as you get into the sixes, things start to move, magma-wise.
Hawaii was hit by a 6.9 earthquake just before Kilauea started actively spewing stuff out.
Again, mainstream science has taken its eye of places like Mayotte, because if it hasn’t exploded for 5,000 years, then that was probably the last spluttering of an ‘ancient’ volcano that did most of its dirty work billions of years ago.
Do you think they’re right?
Or, do you think that the Torah’s account of the creation of the world is true, and that that volcano – and all the others in the world - was smoking and active at least once in the last 6,000 years?
Over on Ravberland.com, they’ve had some very interesting articles going up the last few months, where the Rav has been making some high-level allusions to comets ‘burning up’ the enemies of the Tzaddikim; mountains moving around and melting together, and most recently, in a post called Now, we’ve reached Har Sinai, he talked about ‘pele’.
This is what he said:
“The whole spiritual work is to reach to Alef – to Peleh (the same letters – אלף = פלא), to ‘Peleh’ – to ‘wonders of wonders’, we came to this world in order to reach to ‘Peleh’ – to ‘wonders of wonders’….
“Because the Jewish Nation sees all the miracles every second, every second Klal Yisra’el sees all the nissim (miracles) and nifla’ot (wonders).
“A person came to this world only in order to see the nissim. Because when Hashem created the world he planned all the nissim that would be until the end of all the generations.”
I got a shiver down my spine when I read that, because while it’s very hard to grasp the deeper points of what the Rav is really saying, especially in translation, ‘Pele’ is what the Hawaiins call their volcanoes.
Here’s the Wiki entry on the subject:
“According to legend, Pele lives in the Halemaʻumaʻu crater Kīlauea
What are the chances that the Rav is ‘randomly’ mentioning ‘Pele’ in the same breath as discussing mountains fusing together, us getting to Har Sinai, and the end of the process where the suffering of the Tzaddik (he’s been talking about Rabbi Akiva’s being combed by iron combs for years, throughout his years of exile) transforms into this ‘Aleph – Pele’ thing?
I’ll leave you to mull all that over.
But if I was a betting woman, I wouldn’t bet a cent on the idea that the world is 13.8 billion years old, that the continents ‘drifted’ into their current formation hundreds of millions of years’ ago, or that ‘tectonic rubbing’ caused our mountain chains, when clearly that process simply wouldn’t contain anywhere near the energy required to make rock rise up to thousands of feet high.
The crust was rippled like a pond, like someone drawing their hand over a tablecloth, bunching it up in all sorts of weird ways. The amount of power and energy required to do that can only come from outside the earth’s own sphere – which is why ‘science’ discounts that such a thing could have happened.
But when you believe in God, and you know God uses comets to do things on earth, and that God turned the earth’s crust over 974 times before our world even began, there is no difficulty in seeing what’s really happening in our world right now with clearer eyes.
We are entering a time of Pele, wonder of wonders, and open miracles.
I hope we’re all ready.
It seems to me that things are both speeding up and slowing down at the moment. In terms of geophysical events, earthquakes, volcanoes, monster hail, flash floods, crazy weather – it’s speeding up.
And the more the world seems to be in the middle of another round of the biblical 10 plagues, the less some people want to talk about it. Sadly for them, even if you do have your head in the sand as far as you can possibly stick it, the freak weather is getting too strange and too widespread to ignore.
60,000 lightning strikes in one day in the UK (400,000 across Europe)… (By way of reference, a typical storm generates 3,000 lightning strikes, a stormy day could generate 10,000, and the most lightning strikes ever seen in recorded history to date for a day in the UK is 50,000.)
Over in France, the wine region got hit by a monster hailstorm that took out the vines and will help to fulfill the verse in Tractate Sanhedrin about wine being plentiful, but expensive before Moshiach comes.
There are pictures of cadillacs, buicks and other typically enormous American cars getting washed down the street and overturned by raging floodwaters in Maryland. More big cracks just spontaneously opened up in Uganda, adjacent to Kenya and its own slew of big recent cracks. Both of these countries are on the East African rift plate.
So stuff is definitely speeding up.
And at the same time, at least for me, I find it’s slowing down.
The hold the internet has maintained on my life for the last two decades is finally starting to loosen. I’m just not so interested, I’m not so drawn to surf, I’m not so excited to read stuff online anymore.
Intellectually, there’s still some good stuff and I am researching a few things (as always…) but I’m talking about the visceral grip that surfing the net used to catch me in, where I’d feel kind of chained to the PC and unable to turn off. It is still there, it hasn’t gone completely – but it’s greatly, greatly reduced, and for the first time in ages I'm able to do other things again.
Is anyone else out there noticing this? That there’s a feeling that things are winding down, in some way?
That’s part of the reason I don’t feel like posting so much stuff up at the moment. On some level, I think a boundary was crossed recently where events are going to snowball all by themselves, and whichever version of the world you’ve hitched your cart behind, that’s now where you’re headed.
I have lost a lot of my urge to argue with people, and to keep posting up facts and information about things that most people have no intention of changing their minds about. That means the way is being cleared to start writing about other stuff, but I don't know what that is yet.
Before all the craziness really kicked off in earnest in Hawaii, the lava lake in the Kilauaea volcano first drained away and disappeared. If you didn’t know better, you’d think the volcano had dried up and vanished.
The magma was on the move, and was getting ready to burst up and out in a bunch of different, dramatic ways all over the Big Island.
I think that ‘Moshiach Magma’ may be doing the same thing right now. All that energy, all that interest we’ve had in the geula for years and years now is kind of draining away and out of our lives.
Nibiru didn’t show up and blast the planet to smithereens, (thank God), World War 3 with the Iranians didn’t happen (thank God), the banks didn’t all fail overnight leading to mass chaos and unrest, (thank God), North Korea didn’t nuke Miami, (thank God), Hezbollah didn’t start bombing us from the North, and the Gazans didn’t break through from the South (thank God, thank God).
There was no huge ‘explosion’ to usher in the time of Moshiach.
But the Moshiach Magma is still on the move, quietly and surely, and things are being shaken up beneath the surface in a way that is not yet obvious.
Something is changing. Something is happening. But I have no idea what.
At the same time, for the first time in about six years, I’ve started painting again. Life has been so crazy and chaotic that I haven’t been able to pick up a brush since I’ve been in Jerusalem. I still have no idea what’s going on with our aborted house purchase, or where I’m meant to be moving to when my lease runs out in August, but I’m painting again.
Which means that beneath the chaos, the peace and the calm is starting to blossom, however unlikely that seems given just how crazy it all looks right now.
Land is created by volcanic eruptions. That hot magma becomes the basis of the ground, the earth, once it cools off enough to start accreting mud and plants.
So in the midst of all the destruction, something new and wonderful is also being formed, even though it’s too early to make that out yet.
But the ‘Moshiach Magma’ is on the move.
And I guess we’ll all keep watching and waiting to see where it will pop-up next.
Like you, I'm kind of holding my breath at the moment, very unsure of what the immediate future holds. In the meantime, I've gathered together some interesting info about the weird weather going on and the volcanic eruptions occurring, and I'd welcome any feedback.
We live in very interesting times. I can't remember a time when geo-political and geo-logical stuff was so crazy, and all going on together at the same time. Moshiach really must be around the corner...
HAWAII GETS SET TO BLOW
On Thursday, May 3rd, 2018, the residents of the Leilani Estates development on Hawaii’s Big Island looked out of their windows and got the shock of their lives: overnight a huge gash had developed in the earth, barely a few metres away from their homes, and bright orange molten lava was sputtering and spurting out of it, sending a fountain of molten orange 90 metres up into the sky.
The following day, a 6.9 magnitude earthquake hit the region, and that seemed to be the signal for the lava fountains and volcanic vents to start multiplying across the island. As the days ticked on, more and more vents opened up all over the South Eastern corner of Big Island, belching out clouds of highly toxic Sulphur dioxide and sending a slow-moving but steady stream of lava snaking across the manicured lawns of Leilani Estates.
By May 15th, 18 vents had opened up across Hawaii, 2,000 people had been evacuated – and fears started to grow that another volcanic vent might open up too close to the geothermal plant that had been built smack dab in the middle of the Puna region.
A few days before the first vent opened up, the Big Island had been hit by a number of small earthquakes, or earthquake ‘swarms’, and some of the residents had noticed that the earth in some areas was buckling and ridging, creating big cracks in the tarmac’d road. Hawaii is no stranger to earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and other seismic activity, but even so, these open vents in the earth were unusual, not least because there were 24 miles away from the Kilauea volcano that was apparently causing them.
Meanwhile, the lava lake that had gathered at the bottom of the Kilauea volcano started to seep away into the ground – and no-one knew where it was going. Day after day, the lava dropped a few more thousand feet, until it all but disappeared.
That could easily lead to any or all of the following scenarios:
The scientists of the USGS and the other governmental organisations who are monitoring the situation either really don't know what they're talking about, or they're trying to play everything down on purpose to avoid panicking the populace. You can kind of understand that, I guess.
When the first cracks started appearing on roads in and around the neighborhood in the days prior to Thursday's eruption, geologists confirmed they were caused by an underlying "intrusion of magma," but said they were nothing to worry about.
Professor of Geology at Honolulu University, Mike Garcia, was even more blunt: “Well to be honest, I think it took everybody by surprise because you already have two safety valves that are allowing the magma to come to the surface. The fact that just recently it’s decided to create a new dike that propagated down the rift zone to a new location was unexpected.”
SCIENTISTS LIKE TO PRETEND EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL
Yet just a few short years earlier, Jim Kauahikaua, the scientist-in-charge at the U.S Geological Survey's Hawaii Volcano Observatory (HVO), sited at Kilauea's summit told the Amazing Planet website that the HVO could now predict the path of lava flows much like floods. Apparently, the agency's “dense monitoring network of cameras, seismic stations and field sampling” could predict future upsets.
"We have a much better understanding of the system as a whole," Kauahikaua said. "We know a lot more about the tectonic mechanics of how Kilauea works, about where earthquakes occur and why, and what types of earthquakes occur, and gas emissions and what they indicate," he said.
This sounds impressive, but I don't think it's true.
When Science News spoke to Victoria Avery, volcanologist and associate program coordinator for the U.S. Geological Survey’s Volcano Hazards Program, based in Reston, Va, they asked her the following:
Q. On May 4, two large earthquakes measuring magnitude 5.4 and magnitude 6.9 shook the Big Island in quick succession. How are they related to the eruption?
Avery replied: “It’s not frequent but not unusual for Hawaii to have earthquake[s] like that, because a volcano is a very dynamic place. The [surface swelling] associated with the eruption probably triggered the quake[s]: The magma pushed on the volcano from inside. The whole south flank of Kilauea is an area that has a history of large earthquakes. We didn’t directly anticipate it, but we weren’t that surprised when it happened.”
To put this in plain English, a live volcano erupting wasn’t a huge shock to volcanologists, but they still had no idea it was actually going to occur.
SCIENTISTS FREQUENTLY BEND THE TRUTH
Why does it matter whether the scientists can correctly predict when earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur, or what the seismological information and data and analyzing really are telling them about potentially huge geological changes occurring across the planet?
It matters because so much of what modern science likes to tell us is ‘scientifically proven’ and ‘empirically proven’ actually isn’t – and that has an enormous impact on what we believe about how the world actually works, how old it might be, and whether the extreme geological events that re-shaped the face of the planet really did occur million and billions of years ago, as the scientific community repeatedly assures is.
(As a believing Jew, I know that 8,000 years, tops, is the age of the world including the 974 generations that lived before us on planet earth, so it's obvious to me that all of these 'long dormant' or 'extinct' volcanoes that apparently stopped doing anything 'millions of years ago' are anything but. They could all spring into life again at the drop of the hat...)
CRAZY WEATHER ALL OVER THE WORLD
At the same time that the land was groaning, exploding and fissuring in Hawaii, on the other side of the world, the Indian Subcontinent was being battered by a wave of highly unusual sandstorms and vicious thunderstorms that blew in at 70mph, and knocked over trees, electricity pylons and even homes in both India and neighboring Pakistan.
On Sunday May 13th alone, 14 people were killed by thunderstorms in the Indian province of Bengal, while a further 12 were killed by lightning strikes in Andhra Pradesh. A little earlier in May, 90 other Indians had lost their lives to a number of fatal dust storms that whirled through the country, crushing dwellings and choking the residents.
As the extreme weather continued, few people remembered that in the weeks preceding the storms, 13 Indian children had been mauled to death the Uttar Pradesh region by the wild dogs that usually roam peacefully all over the country.
As the 13th victim was recorded on May 14 – a 10 year old girl – locals were quoted as saying: “No-one seems to know why the stray dogs in the area have suddenly turned into "child killers".
Meanwhile, in nearby Bangladesh, the people of the Rohingya refugee camp were also facing bizarre animal attacks – this time from herds of wild elephants. Twelve people had been killed by wild elephants in the six months from October 2017, with the two latest fatalities occurring the beginning of May.
EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED
If you read THIS over on spiritualselfhelp, you'll already know that the freak weather and the strange behavior of the animals is all connected to the events in Hawaii and the earthquakes and seismic activity occurring elsewhere.
But the mainstream scientists working for the United States Geological Survey (USGS) treat all this information as though it's superstitious nonsense with no scientific basis:
“The earliest reference we have to unusual animal behavior prior to a significant earthquake is from Greece in 373 BC,” began a post on their website. “Rats, weasels, snakes, and centipedes reportedly left their homes and headed for safety several days before a destructive earthquake.
"Anecdotal evidence abounds of animals, fish, birds, reptiles, and insects exhibiting strange behavior anywhere from weeks to seconds before an earthquake. However, consistent and reliable behavior prior to seismic events, and a mechanism explaining how it could work, still eludes us. Most, but not all, scientists pursuing this mystery are in China or Japan.
“An earthquake forecast was made in China several decades ago, based on small earthquakes and unusual animal activity. Many people chose to sleep outside of their homes and thus were spared when the main earthquake indeed occurred and caused widespread destruction.
"However, usually no large earthquake follows this type of seismic activity, and, unfortunately, many earthquakes are preceded by no precursory events whatsoever. The next large Chinese event was entirely unheralded and scores of thousands of Chinese died.”
THERE ARE AT LEAST 33 VOLCANOES ERUPTING IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW
Even in more normal times, between 10-20 of the 1500 volcanoes that science considers to be ‘potentially active’ are erupting somewhere in the world. That volcanoes erupt is part and parcel of the complex mystery of how Planet Earth operates.
But even so, by May 13th 2018, the Volcanodiscovery website was listing 33 volcanoes that were actively erupting, while Wikipedia was listing 55 volcanoes – all actively erupting at the same time.
Everywhere you looked in the world between April and May 2018, you could see examples of freak weather and unprecedented natural disasters.
At the end of April, a freak storm of huge hail hit the Saudi city Madinah, in the desert-filled Arabian Peninsula, smashing car windscreens and leading the authorities to cancel all schools and public events as ‘balls of marble’ fell from the skies.
May 5th saw such severe flash floods hit Turkey that cars were washed away down the streets of Ankara in their hundreds, with the Mayor of Ankara calling the floods a “disaster like never before.”
On May 7th, a never-before-seen sub-tropical cyclone formed off the coast of Central Chile, with baffled meteorologists calling it a “one of a kind” event.
By May 10th, it was Australia’s turn to get battered by storms, when almost 5 inches of rain fell on Tasmania in just one day, again causing widespread flooding and destruction. Tasmania’s State Emergency Services Director called the flooding “unprecedented.” He continued: “I’ve been in the job for 17 years, and I’ve never seen anything like this.”
North Germany under a metre of flood water when 4 inches of rain fell in just 20 minutes.
On May 9th, the Patel Dam in Kenya collapsed killing 50 people and leaving another 500 unaccounted for, after unprecedented flooding over the previous weeks that had already killed more than 150 people and displaced a quarter million Kenyan residents.
By May 12th, British Columbia was also seeing severe, record-breaking flooding, which had BC Premier John Horgan saying the Province was facing a “once in a hundred years” flooding event.
By May 16th - today! - so many ‘freak’ occurrences were happening all at once, it was hard to know what to focus on. Should we worry about the huge plume of ash now coming off Mount Kilaueua in Hawaii that signaled some sort of massive eruption was now highly likely? Or, should we be more concerned by the 25,000 ft high plume of ash that had just shot out of the Shinomoedake volcano in Japan?
Maybe, we should focusing on the earthquake swarms that had started up under the South East African Mayotte Islands, home to another huge volcano? Or perhaps the Canary Islands on the North West tip of Africa, which had also recently registered a huge earthquake swarm and who was now showing constant, unbroken activity on the seismographs, proof that the magma under the surface of the earth there was on the move?
Over in the US, severe thunderstorms with damaging winds, tennis-ball sized hail and even tornadoes were giving the residents of major cities including NYC, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Baltimore, Boston, Atlantic City and New Jersey their own set of major problems, as over 30,000 lightning strikes were recorded in just two hours, and a state of emergency was declared as a result of the tremendous flash flooding.
Surely, these things must be connected, somehow?
There is so much going on at the moment. Like you, I am watching, waiting and praying, to see how all this is going to turn out - and I'm only covering the geo-logical in this post, not the geo-political - and whether it's going to lead to the imminent geula, or not.
BH, we should all hear good news soon. And in the meantime, don't go near anywhere that has a volcano and a lot of earthquake swarms happening.
I'm just saying.
This is an updated version of the post I first put up last June, when 'Nibiru-itis' was at its apex. There is still something up there, the Kochav Yaacov that's destined to appear at the End of Days. If we really are close to Moshiach being revealed, then celestial phenomena should be part and parcel of what we're witnessing around us.
And that's exactly what's going on, albeit hidden in plain view.
HOW COMETS REALLY WORK
After a period of pronounced scepticism about all things 'Nibiru' related, a few months back God arranged for me to find an awesome book (that was published more than 20 years’ ago…) called: ‘Mysteries of Creation’, by Rabbi Dovid Brown, which contains a whole bunch of Torah sources and material about the world’s cosmology.
All of a sudden, things started coming together a little more about where the concept of ‘Nibiru’ might actually fit in to the whole picture leading up to Moshiach and the End of Days. The bits from this book that are particularly relevant to our discussion today can be summed up as follows:
The world was only created because people would keep Torah and God’s laws. Whenever people don’t keep Torah and God’s laws, that literally destabilizes the planet.
God destroyed the previous 974 generations before our present world by flipping the earth’s crust over from the water table, completely destroying all life on the planet in an instant, and returning the world to TOHU AND BOHU.
This explains why they’ve found fossils of deep-sea creatures on the highest mountains, and also covers how the dinosaurs disappeared in an instant (plus many other ‘mysteries’ that cannot be explained by evolution or modern science).
God will ‘change’ planet earth seven times before Moshiach comes (according to the Pirkei d’Rabbi Eliezer 18) - and we have one big ‘change’ left to come before the End of Days.
Eretz Yisrael is the only ‘fixed’ land mass on the whole planet, as it’s built on the ‘even shetiyah’, or foundation stone of the whole world. That’s why Chazal call Israel ‘the strong place of the world’.
THE BODY ELECTRIC
The next piece of the puzzle is that people are ‘electrical’ beings. Over on spiritual self-help, I've written a bunch of posts explaining how our hormones, emotions, and so much of our physical functioning and impulses are controlled / initiated / stopped by minute electrical charges, often tripped-off by so-called 'space weather'. Every cell in the human body functions as a tiny battery, or electric circuit and is polarised.
For example, some research was done a few years’ back exploring why suicide rates appeared to jump notably after big solar storms (where the sun would send out solar flares), and also in areas that were very close to power lines.
For now, just tuck this piece of information in at the back of your minds, but when the atmosphere is ‘electrically charged’ in an abnormal way, the human body reacts by our emotions, hormones, and other internal electric signalling systems going haywire. This in turn can lead to extreme emotions and moods, and also physical illnesses.
ENTER SCIENTIST JAMES McCANNEY, AND A WHOLE NEW THEORY ABOUT COMETS AND CLIMATE CHANGE
Next I discovered a maverick astrophysicist called James McCanney, who basically got kicked out of his teaching position in Cornell University for discovering a whole bunch of things about the universe that NASA, and many other of the ‘powers that be’ found very disturbing.
And that’s where this post starts to get really, really interesting. I went over to McCanney’s website, bought some of his books on how the weather really works and how the solar system really functions and what comets really are, and that’s what I want to share with you in the rest of this post, God willing, as the overlap with our Jewish sources is absolutely stunning.
There is a ton of information to convey, so I will try to break it up and to make it as easy and simple to digest as possible, because this stuff is really, really important to understanding what is actually happening around us.
SOME FACTS ABOUT THE UNIVERSE NASA WON’T TELL YOU
Before we continue, you should be aware that ‘the theory of evolution’ has become such a dogma in scientific circles and the halls of academia, that despite there being not a single scrap of evidence to support it, and despite the fact that there is more and more information building up that completely disproves it, scientists in every field are bending over backwards to ‘ignore’ any data that doesn’t’ fit with their ‘evolved’ view of the world.
Darwinism gave atheists a way to negate God, and His creation of the world, in an ‘intellectually satisfying’ way, to quote Richard Dawkins. The trouble is, the facts and the data they are uncovering in all spheres of life - from human health, to geology, to astronomy - don’t ‘fit’ the Darwinist dogma that the world was formed 4.2 billion years ago, by completely random chance, and that our solar system has remained a static entity since that time.
Scientist Douglas Axe recently did a whole bunch of experiments on folded proteins - the most simple building block of ‘life’ - that completely disproved the notion that the world could have come about by random chance. The amount of time it would have taken to achieve just one ‘useful’ mutation - let alone a whole bunch of mutations that turned a protozoa into a human being - requires much more time than even the Darwinists’ 4.2 billion years…
Axe was promptly sacked from his research post, and forced to continue as an independent scientist. (He wrote a great book called Undeniable, which explains his experiments - and what they mean for the theory of evolution - very clearly and simply.)
The reason I’m telling you this is to help you to understand WHY so much of the so called ‘science’ today is plain wrong, convoluted, or even deliberately misleading the public. The data proves that God created the world, and that the world is actually a very, very young place (more on this in the next post).
The implications of that are so terrifying to all the atheists running the world, they are telling bigger and bigger lies to try to keep their atheist world-view together.
So now, how is this ‘denial of the obvious’ affecting NASA? One of the key answers to this lies in the whole subject of comets, and how NASA explains how comets are formed, and what they do in the world.
(Since I wrote this post, it's also struck me that our Sages teach that everything revolves around planet earth, while 'science' teaches everything revolves around the sun. I think this is a big part of the reason why no-one can actually correctly predict what's going on with 'Planet X' flybys and dates - they are using the wrong model.)
THE NASA VIEW OF COMETS
Simply put, NASA’s view of comets is that they are ginormous ‘dirty snowballs’ of frozen ice that basically disintegrate when they get too close to the sun (or any other massive heat source). According to NASA, comets can do very little harm to planet earth because:
1) They will melt before they get anywhere near us.
2) The only harm they could do is if they impacted earth directly, which would be such a rare occurrence, we don’t have to worry about it happening for at least another billion years…
Trouble is, the data NASA got from sending a probe up to photograph the interior of the Hale-Bopp comet a few years’ back in the late 1990s completely disproved the ‘dirty snowball’ theory. At the centre of the comet, NASA discovered a huge lump of charred rock, not impacted ice.
That meant that a comet wouldn’t gently dissolve away the nearer it got to the sun. But it also changed the whole picture about what comets really are, and what they potentially can really do to planet earth in such a fundamental way, NASA immediately tried to bury the data and then spin its implications into something more acceptable to orthodox science.
THE ‘JAMES McCANNEY’ THEORY OF WHAT COMETS REALLY ARE, AND WHAT THEY CAN REALLY DO
While all this was going on 20-30 years ago, astro-physicist James McCanney was working at Cornell University, and had access to a lot of the raw data that was streaming in to NASA at that point. McCanney had previously developed what he calls the Plasma Discharge Comet Model, which explained the following:
Our solar system acts like one huge, electrical circuit.
The Sun is a kind of enormous ‘battery’ (what McCanney terms the ‘solar capacitator’), with its negative pole at the surface of the sun, and it’s positive pole pushed far out beyond the last of the planets in our solar system. The ‘positive pole’ takes the form of a sparse ‘nebular cloud of dust and gasses’.
Protons are positively-charged sub-atomic particles. The sun generates what’s called a solar wind that’s made of an excess current of protons, and this solar wind leaves the sun, and blows outward into space. These protons are what keeps the solar ‘battery’ and circuit operating.
Every star, planet and other ‘object’ in the galaxy similarly acts as a cosmic ‘battery’, and also generates these fields around themselves.
When an object shows up in the solar system and enters the field of the ‘solar capacitor’ (and by ‘object’, I’m referring to everything from the smallest chunk of meteor to the largest planet-sized nuclei out there) - they ignite a large discharge of plasma that appears to us humans as a comet, with its flaming tail.
The nucleus of a comet is NEGATIVELY charged, which means it sucks matter, gasses and energy in towards itself, like a ginormous cosmic vacuum cleaner. The comet’s tail material is made up from the surrounding atmosphere, and comets tend to GET BIGGER and build up as they go along, and to not ‘melt away’.
Small comets ‘discharge’ the sun’s energy in a small, localised way. Large comets can ‘discharge’ the sun’s whole solar ‘battery’ power in a very short period of time.
When that happens, it can be very dangerous, because discharging the solar battery triggers violent solar storms which can directly affect the earth via our weather etc (and also, directly affect human beings’ emotions and physical health, by disrupting our own inner ‘electrical circuit’.)
We will discover more about how the earth can be severely impacted by comets from a distance, without them actually impacting the surface of the planet, in a minute.
The last things to say for now about comets is that they move in an extremely erratic and unpredictable way, because the ‘drag’ of the comet’s tail is changing all the time, depending on how much stuff the comet’s picked up, how much it’s discharged, what that ‘stuff’ in its tail actually is etc.
While this post is talking about what’s termed ‘Nibiru’, or ‘Planet X’, the truth is that there are many thousands, maybe even millions of comets out there, that could show up at any time, as God wills it to happen.
The key point to remember from this section is that the solar system is dynamically electric - and NOT electrically ‘neutral’, as NASA claims - and that comets interact with the sun, and the earth, and every other planet / moon / body out there in an ELECTRIC fashion.
HOW COMETS AFFECT THE EARTH FROM A DISTANCE
When a comet first enters our solar system, it’s orbit is massively erratic and unpredictable, as its ‘tail’ continues to gain mass and to slow it down. Eventually, one of two things will happen to the comet:
a) It’ll settle into some sort of ‘regular orbit’ around the sun
b) It’ll become ‘captured’ by a larger planet as a new moon (although it can subsequently still break free from its ‘mother planet’ in the future).
Until either of these things occur, the comet can wreak havoc on the solar system and the existing planets here.
The least likely scenario is that a comet will bash straight into the earth, which depending on its size could easily kill everything and everyone on the planet. Statistically speaking, the laws of nature decree that to be a very unlikely event (although of course, Hashem runs the world so really there aren’t any ‘laws of nature’ here.)
What we can say as believing Jews is that there is nothing in our Torah sources to suggest that Hashem is going to turn the lights off on planet earth and the whole human race for good (at least, at this point in history), so we can effectively scratch that option off the cards.
What could very well happen, though - and what HAS happened on many, many occasions beforehand - is that Hashem will use a passing comet to cause sizeable destruction and mayhem to planet earth, and to reconfigure the earth’s seasons, calendar, topography, atmosphere and many other things besides.
Remember, God ‘destroyed’ 974 worlds before ours, by overturning the earth’s mantle from the T’HOM, or water table.
Later on, from Adam and Eve on, Hashem drastically altered the seasons, atmosphere, topography, etc etc on six separate occasions, all of which are listed in Rav Dovid Brown’s excellent book, based on the midrashim and Torah sources.
The last ‘tweak’ of the earth’s climate / seasons / atmosphere / calendar etc is meant to occur concurrent with geula, and the time of Moshiach and the end of days. I.e., right around now.
NATURAL DISASTERS AND CLIMATE CHANGE PHENOMENA ASSOCIATED WITH COMETS
So, how does a near-miss with an large, planet-sized comet achieve all this stuff, according to the laws of nature as described by physicist James McCanney?
1) The sun produces far more ‘electric energy’ than light energy.
2) The earth has a huge, vertical electrical field that is sustained by the sun’s electrical power distribution system. The current of this field is stored in the earth’s ionosphere, and the air in our atmosphere is what’s called ‘dielectric material’.
3) Usually, the earth’s magnetic field protects us and buffers us from the sun’s energy. When the electrical conditions in our solar system start to change rapidly, as the result of an additional ‘body’ starting to engage the sun and increase the amount of ‘charge’ going into and out of the the ‘solar battery’, the electrical fields and currents that we’re subject to down here on planet earth start to go haywire as the sun discharges more, and greater, solar flares.
4) When something like a large comet approaches our solar system, as soon as it reaches the outer edge of the planets, the solar system’s ‘electricity’ starts to ratchet up to much higher levels.
5) More electrification = more energy in the earth’s atmosphere and the earth’s oceans = more evaporation of water = more ‘haze’ in the atmosphere. In turn, this triggers off a bunch of ‘climate change’ phenomena like:
6) Now, a word about magnetic fields: they require an electric current to generate, and the electrical current needs a ‘battery’ to power it. The ‘battery’ for the earth’s magnetic field is the nuclear fusion that’s occurring at the top of the solar atmosphere.
7) Our earth’s magnetic field is made up of many layers, some of which are ‘stable’, but most of which are variable, and highly affected by what’s occurring in the atmosphere around them.
8) The variable part of the magnetic field can be temporarily reversed, or ‘flipped’, for short periods of time as a result of massive solar storms and / or comets passing very close by to the earth.
9) Every planet / moon / comet / object in the solar system generates some sort of ‘magnetic field’ as a result of its electrical interaction with the sun, including our own moon. That’s why new moons have the biggest impact on the earth’s weather.
10) Planet earth’s magnetic field diverts the ‘solar wind’ - that current of electrically charged photons that’s constantly streaming our way from the sun - from the planet.
11) The closer a comet of size comes to the sun, the more electrical discharge starts to happen, which causes more energy in the solar atmosphere, leading to more and stronger solar flares, which in turn can affect or alter the earth’s magnetic field structure - leading to crazy weather, climate change phenomena, and even crazier people.
So far so good?
Great! Because now it’s going to get even more mind-blowing.
WHEN A LARGE COMET COMES CLOSE TO THE EARTH, IT CAN LITERALLY CHANGE EVERYTHING, INCLUDING SHIFTING THE POLES
Thus far, we’ve been describing the ‘minor’ results that can occur when a large comet enters the solar system, even if doesn’t pass so close to the earth. But when a large comet passes close to the earth, then things can start to get really quite scary.
(Take a long breath, and remember God is running the world and in charge of everything.)
There are two main problems a large, close-passing comet can cause (aside from all the freak weather, earthquakes and volcanoes described above, which is really small potatoes compared to what’s coming next):
1) It can cause the earth’s poles to permanently shift to a different location, instantly plunging those new polar regions into the deep freeze.
2) It can set off a massive ‘gravitational wave’ that would literally ripple through the earth’s mantle, or crust, causing mountain ranges to instantly spring up from the ground (or the sea…) in some areas, while plunging other land masses permanently into the ocean.
Let me quote something from James McCanney’s books:
“The only process that could cause a shift or rotation of the spin axis of the earth’s mantle is a gravitational wave set off by a large passing comet.”
A WORD ABOUT POLE ‘FLIPS’
When people talk about the ‘poles flipping’, they have a mistaken idea that the magnetic ‘charge’ associated with each pole will swap places. As mentioned, the earth’s magnetic field is layered, and the variable part of it that’s caused by electrical currents and fields HAS flipped temporarily on a number of occasions already, including in recent times, due to massive solar storms.
But the ‘permanent’ part of the magnetic field that’s associated with the magnetic iron and nickel deposits located in the earth’s crust are actually scattered all over the planet, literally, and can’t ‘flip over’ as a whole.
The earth is not a solid piece of magnetised rock: the core of the earth is molten (as attested to by our own sources as referenced by Rabbi Dovid Brown, when he talks about where Gehinnom is 'hidden' on planet earth.)
WHAT HAPPENS WITH A ‘GRAVITATIONAL WAVE’?
Remember, the comet’s nucleus (which can be literally as large, or even larger, than our own planet, in the larger comets) is negatively charged, electrically, which means it’s exerting a huge ‘sucking’ force on everything around it.
As a large comet passes close to planet earth, it starts to pull at the earth’s atmosphere, and tug on our magnetic field (I’m not describing this section in scientific language. Please see James McCanney’s books for the physics and scientific theory behind what I’m describing with some poetic license.)
If the pull from that passing comet is strong enough, it’ll trigger tidal waves across both the world’s oceans AND the earth’s mantle.
Imagine it like this: take the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner, and run it along a piece of cloth. The cloth is literally ‘lifted’ off the floor as the nozzle runs over it, and ripples, returning to a different place on the floor after the nozzle has passed over it.
THAT’S WHAT A BIG ENOUGH COMET CAN DO TO THE EARTH’S CRUST.
“The waves ripple through the [earth’s] mantle at thousands of miles per hour, as the remote object’s gravitational field drags the tidal bulge around the globe.” - James McCanney
The earth’s crust kind of ‘floats’ on top of the core underneath. It’s like a tablecloth. If a stormwind ripped through your house and pulled the table cloth off before dumping it back on, that tablecloth could easily be inside out, back-to-front, horizontal instead of vertical, bunched up in places, flattened out in others.
If the earth’s crust was sufficiently ‘moved’ by the gravitational wave, that could have the effect of moving the poles to a different part of the planet.
If that happened, the number of days per year would change, the seasons would change, and our existing calendars simply wouldn’t work any more. Whole continents could literally disappear overnight, and new ones could rise to replace them.
Remember this point from this section: If there is a PHYSICAL pole shift, the days of the year, seasons and the calendar will all be altered.
Again, God has already done this to the world since Adam and Eve was created on a number of occasions.
That’s why they found frozen mastodons in Siberia last century that still had tropical leaves and flowers intact in their throats. Before that particular pole shift, Siberia had a temperate climate.
When the poles shifted to the present position, the mastodons were ‘flash frozen’ so fast and so deeply that 3,000 years later, people were eating defrosted ‘Mastodon’ steaks in fancy cafes in France, because the meat was still fresh.
Everything you’re reading is the true, scientifically-proven way the solar system operates, and the ‘natural way’ that a comet can, could had already has affected our world. We aren’t talking about ‘supernatural’ miracles here, although of course, there really is no ‘nature’, as we already mentioned, because God is running the show 100%.
WHY ERETZ ISRAEL IS THE SAFEST PLACE IN THE WORLD
I just want to quickly mention here that according to our Torah sources, the only ‘fixed’ landmass in the world is Eretz Yisrael, which is affixed to the ‘even shetiyah’, or foundation stone of the world.
In terms of what we’re discussing and the ‘gravitational wave’ that could hit the earth’s crust as a result of a near-miss with a large comet, Eretz Yisrael is the part of the tablecloth that’s screwed down to the table. That baby isn’t going anywhere.
Also, as we’re closer to the equator, the chance of Eretz Yisrael being one of the places that would get instantly ‘deep frozen’ as a result of a pole shift is zero - and the reason I’m saying ‘zero’ instead of ‘very small’ is because our Jewish sources make it clear that Eretz Yisrael is the third of the world that would come through any planetary destruction scheduled to happen before the end of days happens, unscathed.
Of course, if people make teshuva our true tzaddikim could sweeten all this, and just being in Eretz Yisrael is no guarantee of anything, especially if you're publicly bad-mouthing the true tzaddikim etc, but it's interesting to note.
THE DESTRUCTIVE EFFECTS OF THE COMET’S TAIL
The last thing to cover in this post is the destructive effects of a large comet’s tail. Again, we’re not talking about a comet directly impacting the earth here. We’re talking about what can occur when a large comet (really a planet…) passes close to the earth without hitting it.
As that negatively-charged comet nucleus roars around solar system, it starts picking up more and more ‘stuff’ which it carries along with it as its ‘tail’. That tail can contain gasses like oxygen and hydrogen, naptha (oil), and even showers of meteors which typically contain metal ore and are ‘attracted’ to the comet as a pin would be attracted to a magnet.
The larger the comet, the larger it’s negatively charged field, and the bigger the meteor rocks it can pull along with it.
Again, when we’re talking about ‘Planet X’ or Nibiru, we have to bear in mind that there are MANY ‘Nibirus’ out there, and all of them are accompanied by other objects including meteors and asteroids.
Now, depending on which planet, or celestial body, wins the electrical and gravitational tug-of-war that occurs when two large planets / comets / bodies pass too close by to each other, the following happens:
1) The ‘winner’ sucks away all of the debris / atmosphere / gasses from the other party and ends up with all that stuff kind of ‘dumped’ into its own atmosphere. That could include massive amounts of water, nafta, metal ore and I don’t know what else.
2) The ‘loser’ ends up losing a good deal, or even ALL of its debris / atmosphere / gasses etc.
That’s one way Planet Earth could be deluged by enormous amounts of water, nafta, rocks and other things that currently can't be found on earth.
But even if the nucleus of a big comet didn’t come close enough for that to happen, we could still be deluged with water and other things, if the earth passed directly through the TAIL of a comet.
Passing through a large comet’s tail would block the sun, again change the composition of the atmosphere, affect the magnetic fields, and lead to flooding all over the globe on a scale hard to imagine.
McCanney estimates that it would take approximately 40 days for the planet earth to move through a comet tail that was 20-40 million miles across (i.e., an average-to-large comet.)
If you’re thinking that ’40 days’ sounds familiar, you’re right: this is what occurred during Noah's flood, or he Mabul, as it's called in Hebrew.
TO SUM UP: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A LARGE COMET ENTERS THE SOLAR SYSTEM
Let’s conclude this monster post with a summation of what will occur, according to the natural laws of the way the solar system and our physical world truly operates, if a large comet enters our solar system, EVEN IF IT DOESN’T DIRECTLY IMPACT PLANET EARTH.
Again, the closer it comes and the bigger it is, the more problems it will potentially cause us. But even if it’s just somewhere ‘out there’ in our solar system, the increased electrical activity and solar flares can cause the following to happen:
And that’s if ‘Planet X’ doesn’t come too close, or isn’t too big, to spark off a ‘gravitational wave’ that could literally jerk the planet’s crust around so violently the poles would physically shift position, with all that entail, or if we wouldn’t pass directly through the comet’s tail.
As you can see, there’s lots to pray for!
Again, the reason you aren’t hearing about all this stuff on the news is because modern science is devoted to proving the mendacious theory of evolution correct, and likes to pretend that the world has been here for eons, and that big changes like I’ve described here only occur over billions of years.
But the truth is very different, and that truth is borne out and described in multiple places in our Torah, midrashim and other teachings.
Since I first wrote this piece last year, it's amazing how much of this list of comet-induced phenomena is happening all around us at the moment. Something is definitely out there, and it corresponds to geula and Moshiach being revealed.
The last thing to say is that our true tzaddikim can control the planetary objects, because we Jews are above the stars, and the greatest of us can literally demonstrate that.
(It's not an accident that the disgusting Ynet chose to headline their recent smear piece with: 'The Rabbi can control the sun and the moon'. That's another clue from God what's really going on here.)
So, we live in very interesting times, and if you check back on spiritualselfhelp.org HERE, you'll find a bunch of the scientific evidence that the scientific community have either overlooked, mis-classified or suppressed that backs up everything you've learnt in this post 100%.
Comets cause massive, and often instantaneous changes on planet earth. Those changes affect every area of life, including how we humans function, physically, mentally and physically.
And behind the comets stands God, and His Torah, and His true tzaddikim.
Things are moving so fast, it’s hard to even hold on to the latest headline ‘panic’ story before another one pushes it out of the way.
Back on April 13th, we were all worrying about the Cold War replay stand-off that was taking place in Syria with the US and Putin’s Russian squaring up to each other.
Then on April 25th there was North Korea’s last nuclear test, which melted down their under-mountain test site and had China worrying about North Korean subterranean nuclear contamination crossing the border.
(Which, if you ask me, is the real reason Kim Jon Un suddenly decided he’s for peace, and not war, with South Korea. Apparently.)
Then on April 26th, we had the awful, unprecedented storms that killed 10 teens in the Israeli desert and brought flash flooding to wide swathes of the Middle East, while the temperature in places like Pakistan shot up to a world-breaking 51 ®C – killing more than 1,300 people and making 100,000 ill - which is just plain crazy.
Meanwhile, temperatures across the world yo-yoed from record lows to record highs – often within 24 hours – then back again. In the UK, for example, they broke one record after another the last few weeks, both for the most snow ever at this time, the lowest temperatures ever for this time, the most rain in one day, ever, for this time, and the highest temperatures ever, for this time.
Now, with Trump pulling the plug on the awful deal with Iran, the mullahs will probably try to start a war before their economy gets so bad their long-suffering populace finally overthrows them. Today, the North of Israel was told to get their bomb-shelters ready, because something is probably going to start happening soon.
NO WONDER I'M NOT FEELING SO HOT...
If you’re a regular reader of this blog (first of all, thank you!) and second of all, you’ll know that whenever there is ‘war’ in the air, I get some very weird physical symptoms that I can’t explain by more normal routes.
Guess what? The last two weeks, those physical symptoms have been back so strongly, I had to rush off to Superpharm to get two bottles of Rescue Remedy and book and emergency trip to Uman.
It could be that all this current 'din' will also get sweetened by the nation’s true tzaddikim, but it could also be some rockets are going to start flying around all over the place again. Only time will tell.
But nuclear war is not really what’s worrying me. What’s going on in Hawaii – and along the US Western seaboard, and around Yellowstone, and around the world’s beaches and estuaries – is far more interesting, and concerning.
Over on spiritualselfhelp, I wrote up a whole bunch of posts based on Immanuel Velikovsky’s research about how the geology of our planet didn’t change slowly over millions and billions of years, as the God-less scientists like to claim. Changes in the earth’s topography happen much, much faster than that.
Continents can literally break apart in a week, a month, a year – i.e. a very short period of time. Volcanoes can spring up overnight, dry land can become flooded, and the bottom of the ocean can become a mountain peak in a very short period of time – an hour, a day, a week, who really knows the timescale?
Because massive geological changes in our planet are tripped off, electromagnetically, by near misses and close calls with big celestial objects.
We know that Moshiach’s arrival will coincide with a whole bunch of geo-magnetic upheavals, including massive earthquakes, mountains moving around the planet, and at some point in the process, the whole earth being covered with water for a thousand years.
That’s not small stuff.
And it’s starting to happen in front of our eyes.
In Hawaii, the lava from Mount Kilauea didn’t explode out the top of the crater, as usually happens with volcanoes. Strangely, the volcano is oozing out of the bottom of the crater, and travelling 24 miles away before popping up – literally in the middle of the road – in the Leilani housing estate.
The volcano is miles and miles away from where the lava is popping up. Which tells you that something is agitating the lava in the volcano, not the other way round. Remember those stories from a few months back that scientists have discovered a huge pool of rising lava under the US?
Go back to sleep, don’t worry about anything, this stuff takes millions and billions of years to do anything dramatic! That’s what they like to tell us all.
But it’s not true.
If you take a look at MR MMB333’s video here (the video itself is shmirat eynayim friendly, but the ads may not be) you’ll see that he’s also starting to draw parallels with the incredibly fast pace of the lava flow in Hawaii, and the flow of lava that was meant to have taken millions and millions of years to form the Yellowstone caldera.
In other words, we can start to see with our own eyes that enormous earth changes occur in a very short amount of time – and I have a feeling that more convincing evidence of that is on the way.
Huge fissures in the ground are appearing overnight in New Zealand and Africa. The weather’s going crazy all over the world, and shorelines that remained unchanged for 2,000 years are disappearing or re-appearing overnight. Animals are acting strange all over the place – with elephants and camels being found trying to swim away, to somewhere, in the oceans, and sea-borne birds migrating to the very middle of the continental US.
Away from the coast.
Two days ago, the Western coast of the USA was shaken by a 4.5 magnitude earthquake. Up in British Columbia, on Canada’s Western coast, highways are starting to warp and crack. The earthquake swarms around Yellowstone are now up to 400 a week. Something similar happened a few weeks’ back in Hawaii, before the lava started moving and exploding out of the ground in front of people’s houses.
The Steamboat Geyser in Yellowstone has now erupted three times in two months - highly unusual. The underground pressure in the area, and on the earth’s crust all over the world, is clearly building and building. And the changes, if and when they come, aren’t going to take a million or billion years.
They could literally happen in the blink of an eye.
If you read THIS over on spiritualselfhelp, you’ll start to have more pieces of the puzzle as to what is going on right now, and what it COULD mean.
I’m personally a big believer in our true tzaddikim sweetening all of the judgments, but that does come with the enormous caveat that this only works for the people who believe in them, and stick close to them. And sadly, there’s still so many people who are still on the wrong side of that equation.
I’m going to re-post my epic post about how comets really work next, because it also explains why strange noises are being heard in the heavens all over the world, and explains more of the real science underpinning the strange events that are being reported, but without the journalists (and also the scientists they quote) really having any idea what it is they are really showing us.
Seems to me, the world really is gearing up for Moshiach to show up soon.
And war with Iran is probably going to be the least of our problems.
I’m doing my darndest to stay off news sites as much as possible at the moment, but even so, it’s hard to ignore the looming showdown on the horizon between the US and Russia in Syria.
While I’m not big on ‘conspiracy theories’, having been sucked into one too many paranoid delusions by crazy bloggers in the past, it does strike me as rather strange that whoever it is should have apparently used chemical weapons against civilians AGAIN in Syria.
I mean, you can do a much better job of killing people by sticking to conventional weapons and bombs, and the world is so hypocritical that it doesn’t care a hoot if 70 Syrian children got blown to pieces by a regular bomb (unless they could somehow claim that the Joos did it – and yes SOTT and all the other rabidly anti-semitic ‘alternative’ news sites, will definitely try to do that.)
But apart from when Jews kill aggressive Arab terrorists, no-one really cares when anyone else does it, or how they do it, as long as they don’t use chemical weapons.
So the question begs to be asked: with Trump publicly stating he wants US soldiers out of Syria just last week; and with the rebels fighting the Assad government on their last legs; and with a few more attempts at creating a real cease-fire in the pipeline – why, o why would whoever it is use chemical weapons at this point in the game?
Unless whoever it is was really, really keen on triggering World War III, but crazy as Trump and Putin honestly really are, even they aren’t itching for a direct confrontation. If they were, it would have happened by now, but both of them seem to be strangely reticent about being the one to hit the ‘start’ button on that particular bit of madness.
As I wrote about HERE, there’s been something strange rumbling on in the UK for weeks, also involving Russians and chemical compounds, and a whole bunch of things about that particular story also don’t add up.
Again, it just looks like another clumsy attempt by whoever is is to try and sow more discord in the world, and bring us a whole bunch closer to WWIII.
While I was pondering this, I was researching some stuff about giants – like real giants, as described in the Torah – which lead to the discovery that the UK has some ancient folklore traditions that ‘Gog and Magog’ was the giant-sized ancestor of the ancient, original inhabitants of the British Isles.
I know this sounds so bizarre, but while all of us in the geula-sphere have been trying to figure out the identity of Gog and Magog in today’s world, massive straw effigies of the giant GogandMagog have been parading in London’s Lord Mayor’s Show every year for the last 2,000 years…
When the US first became an independent country, King George (Gog) III was on the throne in the UK. The first president of the US, as we all know, was George (Gog) Washington. Gog and Magog. So Britain and the former British colony, the US, are collectively GogandMagog.
Who left the British Mandate of Palestine in such a deliberate mess that Arabs and Jews would be at each other’s throats for at least the next thousand years, barring Divine intervention and Moshiach? Britain.
Which brings me to another strange observation. A few months’ ago, I was walking through Ben Gurion airport when I noticed a massive picture ‘celebrating’ the State of Israel’s 70th year, and Zionism’s 120th birthday.
I couldn’t help but reflect that in yiddishkeit, both of these numbers reflect the end of an era, a set period of time, an allotment of life, that is now coming to a close. Until 120! To put this another way, it seemed a clear sign that ‘Zionism’ was on its last legs, which seemed to be compounded by the US decision to open up their embassy in Jerusalem on the State’s 70th birthday, which could lead to who knows what happening.
And then, there was the awesome video of Rav Berland and Rav Dov Kook coming together to ‘bring the geula’ on rosh chodesh Nisan, traditionally our month of redemption.
When you start to take all this together, and then combine it with all the absolute craziness, massive tests of emuna and general ‘I can’t continue on like this anymore’ vibe hitting everyone I know in their private lives…
And then add in the fact that mutation-causing UVC rays are now penetrating the earth’s atmosphere and actually hitting the earth’s surface for the first time in modern history, which could lead to all sorts of strange developments, perhaps including human beings growing wings before the whole planet gets flooded with water as part of the geula process, as we find being described in the deeper Jewish sources…
And never mind all the strange weather and geological phenomena everyone all over the world is experiencing right now, because that’s old news, right?
Then, it really does seem to be pointing in the direction of something about to kick off, very soon, that could potentially completely transform the whole world as we know it.
( See Sanhedrin 92a, 92b and 97a)
The last strange musing to share with you is that I read THIS article over on the Rav Berland website about the Rav and Rav Yitzhak Yosef calling for Israel to intervene to save human lives in Syria, which was a big part of the reason the Israeli government decided to go after him six years ago.
And then I went over to THIS article on Ha’aretz, which described some of the shock and surprise that even the lefties in Israel felt after hearing the Rav’s words. And I scrolled down to the bottom, and was amazed to find that one of the ‘chassidim’ that Haaretz decided to photograph that night was the man who two short week’s later turned ‘State’s witness’ against Rav Berland and started the whole slanderous campaign off against him.
The chances of him being photographed out of a crowd of 8,000 people are very small.
Did Haaretz know what was about to come, or is this just another small sign that God is running every detail of the world, and there is a tremendous harmony and unity hidden behind all the surface chaos, that occasionally peeks through in these small ways?
But we certainly live in very interesting times.
Last week, the local Chabad shlichim in my area arranged a communal seder - for free - for 120 people. That’s an awesome achievement, by any measure. Where do they get their strength from, their energy, their ahavat Yisrael to keep doing this stuff?
It can only be from the late Lubavitcher Rebbe.
As I was thinking about this, I started to ponder how much you can tell about a person by the rabbi they follow. Rebbe Nachman teaches that you can see the ‘imprint’ of a person’s rabbi on their follower’s ‘face’ in some way, with a true student resembling their rabbi more and more.
This is certainly true when a person is doing their best to follow a true Tzaddik and holy person, and sadly, if we’re following a yucky ‘controversial’ apikorus-type rabbi, that will also rub off on us, too.
And if a person doesn’t follow any rabbi? Well, that tells its own story.
YOSHKI ALSO DIDN'T BELIEVE IN HAVING A RABBI
Yoshki, the founder of xtianity notably didn’t follow rabbis. the Talmud relates how when he tried to interrupt his teacher, Rabbi Yehoshua, in the middle of his prayers, the Rabbi gestured to him to wait until he was finished, but Yoshki got offended and stalked off.
The Talmud then recounts that Yoshki ‘set up a brick and started worshiping it’. There are different explanations for what that actually means in practice, but one very strong explanation is that this meant that Yoshki started worshipping himself as the last word, and the ultimate ‘opinion’ on every subject.
This has sadly been a xtian trait ever since. Even today, so many xtians and ex-xtians have perfected the art of slagging off our true rabbis and true Tzaddikim (who xtians like to term ‘Pharisees’, but a Pharisee was just that generation’s ‘haredi’ rabbi) as being ‘backwards’ and ‘corrupt’ and people no-one should listen to.
The argument is always the same, although 2,000 years have passed since Yoshki first came out with it. “Don’t be scared to think for yourselves!!” he used to yell at his disciples, as he encouraged them to break one Torah law after another.
“Eat rice on Pesach, you don’t have to follow the rabbis or halacha! Hardly anyone actually believes in the Shulchan Aruch, it’s not binding on any Jew!” he’d inform all his eager disciples.
But then occasionally, someone would stand up and challenge him: “Er, esteemed rabbi yoshki, that’s not what Rabbi Akiva up the road in Bnei Brak is saying….”
“Him?? That’s just Jewish replacement theology,” rabbi yoshki harrumphed. “You don’t need any rabbis! They are mostly nearly all corrupt erev rav that no-one properly xtian….er, Jewish, needs to listen to. You just need to be a good person, and stop worrying so much about all those petty laws and rules that just bring everyone down and ruin their Pesach.
“Now, let’s all go over to mine to bake our own soft matzahs for Seder - and guess what! No-one needs to wait between eating chicken and drinking a glass of milk, either! That’s another outdated ‘law’ those pathetic, Pharisee-haredim came up with when they had nothing better to do! They are teaching you the Torah of exile!
“So chicken enchiladas with cream sauce it is for Seder night! I can’t wait!!”
XTIANS HATE RABBINIC JUDAISM
King Shlomo himself taught us there is nothing new under the sun, so it’s really no surprise that xtians, and so many of the Jews who grew up in xtian environments in the West still have such a distaste for ‘rabbinic Judaism’, and are still firmly committed to ‘worshipping the brick’.
They absorbed that arrogant, completely un-Jewish outlook in galut, in exile, and sadly they are continuing to bring it into every aspect of their Yiddishkeit.
Something else xtians love (apart from being able to eat chicken enchiladas with cream sauce on Seder night) is ‘Armageddon’ type prophecies where the whole world dies a yucky, violent death - except them and the people who think the same way they do.
Sadly for me, I went to a xtian school and I read through the book of Revelations more than once. Poor me, that I had to go through that.
So this ‘Armageddon obsession’ struck me with all the recent ‘Nibiru’ stuff that was going on online with WSO and a bunch of the other ‘xtian-inspired’ sites out there. The basic idea, again perfected by xtianity and its adherents over two millennia, is this:
Come up with a terrible prophecy, the more gory and dramatic the better, where billions of people are going to die awful deaths, because they aren’t ‘good enough’ and don’t believe the same things that you do.
If you can also find a way to disparage and tarnish the reputation of our real Tzaddikim and holy rabbis while doing this, preferably by dismissing them all as erev rav, or as ‘people who are scared to think’, or people who are somehow ‘practicing another religion’, then you get extra bonus points.
Next, hype-up all this ‘end of the world’ stuff unceasingly for as long as you can keep it going.
Never mind that the prophecies don’t materialize, never mind that the dates come and go and the world keeps turning. The point is just to keep everyone scared and panicked, because then you can control them and keep dragging them down your own particular path to ‘salvation’.
The Catholic Church has been beating this same drum for two millennia, to great effect.
But it’s not the Jewish way.
Orthodox Jews have never been encouraged to seek out ‘prophecies’ and predictions of the future, and in fact we have a number of very strict laws specifically forbidding us from trying to divine what the future holds for us in tumah-dik ways.
But xtians?!? And the Greeks and Romans that inspired them?!? They just lurve their oracles, and their ‘signs’, and their fortune telling stuff. Before any big undertaking, Kings and leaders would usually nip up to the local pagan Temple, sacrifice a bull or two to some dark side force and then ask for a ‘message’ from the other side.
Today, people are still doing this sort of thing notably via séances and Ouija boards, where the messages from the evil spirits involved in all this stuff are spelled out, letter by slow letter, to the unwitting audience.
Facilitated communication from the forces of evil.
Of course, it’s only the old-fashioned Pharisee-Haredim who have a problem with dabbling in all this ultra-tumah-dik stuff. All the more ‘enlightened’ people who aren’t ‘scared to think for themselves’ have absolutely no problem with it.
THE DARK SIDE FORCES ALWAYS BEGIN BY ATTACKING THE REAL RABBIS
Is Niribu / the Star of Yaakov still out there? I think it is, yes.
But it’s impossible to really know what’s going on or when anything may or may not occur, as that information is solely in the keeping of our true Tzaddikim, like Rav Berland and Rav Dov Kook.
I know, I know, the xtian-minded folk who hate Pharisee-Haredi ‘rabbis’ won’t like that idea at all.
But it’s the truth.
Our history if full of ‘false messiahs’ who started their careers by attacking the true Tzaddikim. It began with Korach, continued with Yoshki and Shabta Tzvi, and is still thriving in the midst of all those ‘alternative’ Jewish movements who like to claim you don’t need to listen to rabbis or obey Torah laws.
Just set up your brick and worship it! Don’t let anyone else tell you what to think! You’re as good as Moshe Rabbenu, all those rabbis - and the people who are following them - are just erev rav anyway, don’t you know?
It’s the olam hafuch, the backwards, upside-down world.
May God right it speedily, and may the Jewish people finally rid ourselves of all these yucky xtian-inspired ideas about our true rabbis and Tzaddikim that are definitely doing more than anything else to keep the fires of sinat chinam burning, and to hold-up the geula.
Over on the Shuvu Banim website in English, they've just posted up a truly awesome video of Rav Berland and Rav Dov Kook that was taken motzae shabbat just past, Shabbat HaGadol, in Holon.
When I saw this video, I got shivers down my spine even though I couldn't really understand what was being said. I just had the feeling that this was massive, huge. I don't know why, exactly.
But then I got the translation in English, and it mamash appears as though these two massive tzaddikim were engaged in something very meaningful motzae shabbat, that was directly connected with bringing the geula.
If you want the full English translation, then go take a look at the Shuvu Banim post HERE.
If you just want to see the video in the original Hebrew, press play.
There are huge things going on weather-wise all over the planet right now. Again, when Am Yisrael left Egypt, and when the sea split, and when we received the Torah, these were all 'comet' events.
So when Rav Berland says that Hashem is going to do more miracles for us soon like those He did for us during the time we left Egypt, the mind boggles as to what he's really talking about.
But if you ask me, the chances of geula really happening soon just went up a whole other level.
There's so much weird weather going on at the moment that it's really no stretch to believe in things like a plague of killer hail heading into Pesach.
Three days ago, enormous hail fell over Lesotho in Africa, and according to the Africa News, it damaged a whole bunch of property and trees and even killed some people. Does that sound familiar to anyone else?
Texas has also been getting enormous hail (although not quite on the same scale - it's only breaking car windscreens not knocking people out.)
And the UK...well, it got battered again with another highly unusual 'cold snap' that also managed to erode 10 metres of sea front in some places in less than an hour, leaving a few cottages literally hanging off the edge of a cliff where for centuries it was solid ground.
The man who owns the home in the picture (below) told reporters that two years ago, he was 90 metres away from the sea...and now he really isn't.
So bits of the UK coast are going missing from some places, and others are suddenly being reclaimed.
With all the 'predictions' coming and going still, it's very easy to think that this is all a big fuss over nothing, and the world is going to continue on its merry way for another 3,000 years. And maybe that's correct, who knows?
Except, except, except....
Rav Berland said the following on the Fast of Esther, and he's never been one for hyping up things to do with Gog and Magog, or death and destruction. His message has always been consistently one of things taking a while to play out, of Jews doing teshuva in their masses and Moshiach coming peacefully.
So when he said this, I really sat up and took notice:
Everything that has occurred up until now will appear to be nothing, compared to what will be in Gog and Magog – it will be the nothing of nothings…!
I don't know about you, but I was kind of hoping that WWII had taken care of most of the 'birth pangs' and destruction of mankind stuff associated with Gog and Magog. The Rav speaks at such a high level, it's impossible to really know what he's referring to, but on the pshat level, it seems to be a pretty clear warning that a rough ride is still ahead.
And again, I've gone through a lot of the Rav's material at this point, and while he does talk a lot about destruction coming to the world every 70 years, and Iran trying to nuke us, and other things of that ilk, in the past it's always been joined with other upbeat remarks about how previous generations tzaddikim could have saved their generation by taking shame and humiliation upon themselves.
So I really don't know what to make of this, tell you the truth.
Other than we definitely need to hang on to our tzaddikim and to ask Hashem to show us who the true tzaddikim really are. Whatever is currently cooking in the world, the Jewish people have always been saved by submitting ourselves to our tzaddikim and doing what they tell us.
It was like that in Egypt, with Moshe, it was like that in Shushan, with Mordechai, and it will be like that with Moshiach, when the call goes out to 'bring in your cattle' because some huge flaming hail is about to fall from the sky....
And in the meantime, life continues. And Pesach is around the corner. And if you'd like a good place to donate some kimcha de pischa money to with a Breslov flavor, then please take a look HERE.
Rav Ofer Erez's organisation really is helping some very poor families in Jerusalem celebrate Pesach with the basics they need - and we're really talking about the basics here. Some of these families were my neighbors, and when Rav Ofer says they don't have anything, he's really not exaggerating.
Ka'ayal Ta'arog is really keeping a lot of frum Breslov families going in Jerusalem, and it's a huge mitzva to help out, if you can and that speaks to you. Go HERE to donate, and may we all be blessed with a happy, kosher Pesach.
Massive hail, massive floods, cold snaps, earthquakes and other weird phenomena not withstanding.
