The more the world is getting crazy, the more the question is starting to loom:
Are we really ready for Moshiach?
Did we really do the work – on our bad middot like anger, jealousy, harsh judgment and vengeance (to name but a few that regularly come up for me)?
Did we really work on seeing Hashem’s hand behind every little thing that’s happening to us, for us and against us?
Did we really make an effort to give God what He really wants from us, even when it meant we went against what we really want for ourselves?
Are we connected to real Tzaddikim, who will shield us and protect us with their advice and spiritual merits?
That’s the question.
The more we can answer an honest ‘yes’, the less what’s going on right now will freak us out and scare us.
Moshiach is going to come with a lot of difficulties and natural disasters, we know that, the prophets told us.
The question is:
Are we really ready for Moshiach?
And if current events are getting too scary to deal with, it could be the answer is ‘no’, and that we really have our (inner) work cut out for us, over the next few weeks and months.
That was the question I was asking myself, when I was reading reports of this latest spate of massive wildfires in California, particularly the Redding fire, which looks set to be even bigger than the Thomas fire from the beginning of January.
How can a wildfire jump a huge river?
The firefighters believed the Sacramento river would stop the fire in its tracks, or at least contain it, but shortly after reaching the river, fires started up on the other side of the water.
How is this possible? Modern science has no idea.
Because they are stuck in such a deceitful paradigm of how natural earth processes actually work, and how long it takes for things to happen (billions of years, remember!) they are completely unprepared for what’s going on right now, and are still blathering on about man-made climate change.
I’m not pretending I know everything, far from it, and I welcome any and all input from you, dear readers, to figure this out together. But my starting point is this: the earth’s core is heating up.
Why is it heating up? Because all the rainbow lifestyle stuff and machloket is causing more and more people to enter gehinnom, which we know from the Gemara and Midrashim [see HERE] is located in the earth’s core.
How God is actually doing this according to the laws of nature, I’m still trying to figure out. I think it may have something to do with the increased cosmic rays hitting planet earth as a result of the solar minimum perturbing the silica content of the earth’s crust.
(If that sounded like gobbled-gook to you, BH I will put together a post in plain English trying to explain all this properly soon, once I have it a bit more figured out.)
When one atom of something agitates against another, that causes friction, and friction leads to heat, and that seems to be the most plausible mechanism I can think of for how God is super-heating the inside of the earth’s core (aka Gehinnom) by a natural mechanism.
Because the Zohar teaches that God always works according to the laws of nature, just we haven’t yet figured out what those laws really are.
So now, the next question: how could this extra heat be causing wildfires all over the globe?
I’ve been pondering that a lot too, recently, but when I heard about the fire jumping a massive river in the States, I had an eureka moment: it’s following the flow of flammable gas from the ground.
As the earth is heating up, that’s causing a chain reaction to happen with the more volatile chemical elements, including the gas contained in the ground. As that gas is heated, it’s rising up to the surface. Also, as these changes are occurring, it’s ‘shifting’ the earth’s mantle around too, as the magma (which contains 60-70% silica, if it’s the explosive type, plus lots of volatile gases) also starts to move around and rise closer to the surface.
These shifts are manifesting as the earthquakes that are happening all over the place, including in the UK (10 since April!) and in Israel, with another 3.6 up in the Kinneret, plus a couple of 2 magnitudes the last couple of days.
As that molten rock shifts around due to the earthquakes, more gas is released up to the surface – and it starts to literally leak out of the ground. The main culprit is probably methane, which is highly flammable, the main component of natural gas, and also regularly emitted by molten magma.
Once that gas is near the surface of the ground, even a spark can set it alight.
And I think that’s what we’re seeing happening all over the place at the moment.
If this process really is leading to Moshiach, BH, then we can expect to see more earthquakes, wildfires and volcanoes going off in a pretty major way, that will change the world drastically, with all that entails, but all in a completely ‘natural way’ that the Rambam would be proud of.
And if Moshiach is being held up again, then the earthquakes, wildfires and volcanoes will probably tail off again and slow down.
So we’ll see.
But my guess is that God isn’t going to tolerate all the rainbow stuff for much longer. It’s completely warping the fabric of society, and ensnaring more and more people in evil stuff that is mamash directly fuelling the forces of darkness in the world. And it’s only getting worse.
So my best guess is: things are getting set to blow. But it could still take another two years for the final act to begin.
After I wrote this up, God helped me to find this video. (That's happening a lot at the moment - it's kind of showing me the hypotheses are heading in the right direction).
This is a video from 4 years ago in Hawaii, showing how methane suddenly ignites, then bursts up through the ground. Watch up to the first minute - it's shmirat eynayim friendly, but the rest is just lava going into ponds etc.
The big chiddush here is that THIS COULD HAPPEN ANYWHERE, not just where there is a known active volcano. These methane blasts and lava vents could literally start opening up anywhere in the world, where God chooses to move the magma closer to the surface.
Over in California and 3-4 other Western states right now, there was a bunch of recent earthquakes swarms BEFORE these big fires broke out. The swarms were small - they didn't do any structural damage - but they showed the magma is moving around underground. Now, the fires broke out in the same places the earthquakes hit.
Why? Because as the core is heating up, the methane gas is rising (and I'm debating this with my husband at the moment, because I think the magma is following up close behind, but he's still not convinced.)
And it's being triggered by 'rainbow lifestyle' stuff and the people who are anti-God and anti-emuna.
It doesn't take a million years for this stuff to happen, it can literally occur in a few days.
Are we ready?
So, there’s an interesting discussion that’s been happening in the comments section under the last post (and btw, I’m actually so pleased that people with so many different viewpoints feel comfortable enough to post their ideas up on the blog, in a respectful way that isn’t dissing anyone else, Baruch Hashem.)
But the basic discussion is this:
How can we await Moshiach every single day, as we’re told we have to do by #12 of the Rambam’s 13 Principles of Faith, without getting so hung up on a specific date that it risks utterly ruining our emuna if that doesn’t happen?
As always, there is really no clear-cut or black-and-white answer, so let’s try to figure out together what the sources are actually saying, and how to apply that in reality in our own lives, because there is also a huge difference between ‘theoretical’ Judaism and real, live, sincere Judaism.
So many people are excellent at the former, and actually far less excellent at really applying the theories of what we’re all supposed to do, and how we’re supposed to actually do it, especially to themselves.
So tachlis, how can we balance waiting for Moshiach and eagerly anticipating him every single day, as the Rambam tells us we’re meant to be doing, without getting caught up in pointless false predictions and prophecies about ‘the end’, which is a particularly xtian past-time?
(On that note, I just have to say something: a few people, including my usually very switched-on brother, have recently sent me links to ‘Breaking Israel News’ with different stories about prophecies and predictions about the end of days. I get a really, really bad vibe from the stuff on that website, probably the xtian undercurrent that’s going on there is warping all the authentic Torah sources to its own end. Caveat emptor.)
Here’s what Rav Natan has to say, in Tzaddik (527):
“A number of leading Torah figures have made calculations of the time of the coming of Moshiach. In our own period a number of people have made specific claims about when Moshiach would come. The same has happened in previous generations. The Rebbe disagreed completely.
“He said that any date people gave for the coming of the Moshiach would certainly not be the date he would come. There are passages in the Holy Zohar and elsewhere cursing all who make such calculations. For “The Son of David will only come when no-one is paying attention.” (Sanhedrin 97a).
“At the moment, people are saying Moshiach will come in the year 5600 (1839-40) and they claim that the Zohar contains illusions to this. The truth is that he will definitely not come then. He may come before 5600, or he may come after. But in 5600 itself he will certainly not come.
There is no doubt about this, seeing as people are expecting him them.
“One thing is certain: any date someone gives on the basis of calculations as the date of his coming will quite definitely not be when he comes.
“The Moshiach will indeed come quickly and without delay in our days, but it will be when no one is paying any attention whatsoever. No-one would have dreamt that this would be when he would come – and suddenly he will come. Speedily in our days, Amen.”
There is lots of food for thought here. Before we continue, we should know that some of the people who have made calculations (and that word is crucial, I’ll explain why in a minute) about when Moshiach will come include Torah giants like the Vilna Gaon and closer to our times, Rav Yehuda Ashlag.
So this is not an error that ‘dumb’ or ‘unbelieving’ people make, far from it.
Rav Ashlag’s teachings were picked up and warped by the Kabbalah Centre, and all that interesting stuff on the kabbalahsecrets website is another offshoot of this warped, Kabbalah Centre / quasi-xtian obsession with calculating the end. (There’s that word again.)
So Moshiach is not going to come Succot 5779. How do I know? Simple – Rav Natan said: any date someone gives on the basis of calculations as the date of his coming will quite definitely not be when he comes. He may come before Succot, he may come after, but according to Rav Natan, on Succot 5779 itself, he definitely is NOT coming.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN, ‘CALCULATIONS’?
So now, let’s try to dig down a bit more, and to clarify a bit more about what’s going on, because in recent years, so many of our own huge tzaddikim have made clear statements about our generation being the time of Moshiach and geula.
Are we really saying they don’t know the Gemara in Sanhedrin, God forbid? Or that they’re going against what they’re meant to be doing, but saying what they’re saying, God forbid?
That simply doesn’t make sense. So clearly, something else is going on here. I’m going to bring together a bunch of quotes from One in a Generation Volume II that I think will shed some real light on the subject, and then I’ll sum things up at the end.
MOSHIACH WAS PREDICTED TO COME IN 2012
The Jewish year 5772 (corresponding to 2011-2012) had long been touted as a very likely date for the redemption of the Jewish people to begin. The late Rav Yitzchak Kaduri had publicly stated on a number of occasions that Moshiach would come during Av 5772.
Rav Yitzchak Shlomo Zilberman had also publicized the tradition he’d received that the Vilna Gaon had hinted that 5772 was the year of Keitz, or End of Days, as had other descendants of the Vilna Gaon’s students.
Meanwhile, Rav Yosef Scheinberger told over the story he’d heard directly from Rav Grosnas, one of the Chofetz Chaim’s students, that the Chofetz Chaim had said in the year 5692 that it wouldn’t take more than another 80 years for Moshiach to come — again, bringing us to 5772.
Over the last decade, an enormous amount of sources from the Zohar and other holy works, gematrias and anecdotal traditions were amassed, all pointing to the year 5772 as the year of redemption. As more and more of this information came to light and was publicized, the religious public waited with bated breath to see what will be in 5772.
(Guess what: Moshiach didn’t come then.)
MOSHIACH WAS PREDICTED TO COME IN 2014
As 5774 (2014) wound down, so many different Jewish groups and religious leaders seemed to be talking about Moshiach.
Rav Chaim Kanievsky is on record as saying at this time: “The Moshiach is no longer waiting at the entrance, he’s already been given permission to open the door!” And when he was asked specifically what he meant, he replied, “It’s possible that we’ve reached the end of the exile.”
When Operation Protective Edge began in July 2014, the Milkman, Rav Chaim Cohen, made the following statement: “They informed me from Heaven that the redemption process started today. Am Yisrael is going to be redeemed. No one knows how long it will take, dear brothers, but know that the complete redemption process (geulah sheleimah) has begun, and because of this, the troubles are not going to cease in coming.”
Meanwhile, the kabbalist Rav Dovid Chaim Stern from Bnei Brak told his students in the autumn of 2014 that the situation was only going to get worse from day to day, and that only Moshiach could solve the problem.
(Moshiach didn’t come then, either.)
MOSHIACH WAS PREDICTED TO COME IN 2015
Purim time, 2015, Rav Dov Kook of Tiveria said about Rav Berland’s exile: “There’s some profound siyatta d’Shmaya going on. He’s going to come and redeem us, and when he comes, Moshiach will come too.”
As 5775 continued, the feeling of impending doom that had enveloped the Jewish people (and the world more generally) continued to deepen.
Many of the Gedolei Hador put out messages at this time, including the following one from Rav Chaim Kanievsky, which was publicized around Pesach 5775 (April 2015) by the famous darshan and mashgiach, Rav Chizkiyahu Mishkovsky.
Rav Mishkovsky made the following comments while he was speaking at a conference organized by Lev L’Achim:
“Today, we find ourselves at one of the most critical moments for the Jewish people,” Rav Mishkovsky announced. “One of the close relatives of our teacher and Torah giant, Rav Chaim Kanievsky, recently came to visit him, and the ‘prince of Torah’ [i.e. Rav Chaim Kanievsky] told him: ‘Go and announce to Klal Yisrael that we are at the time of ‘the footsteps of Moshiach,’ and that Moshiach is at the threshold, and the only possibility of surviving this time is through Torah and gemilus chassidim.’”
(Moshiach didn’t come then, either.)
MOSHIACH IS PREDICTED TO COME IN 2016
The prophecy in Zechariah speaks of all the soldiers of the nations gathering around Israel, and as 5776 began, it seemed that prophecy was about to come true.
A video of a secular teenage boy who’d had a clinical death, and who had apparently been shown some violent scenes in Heaven relating to the imminent coming of Moshiach, went viral across Israel, with hundreds of thousands of viewers.
Among the many things the teenage boy said was that the IDF would only be able to stand up against its enemies for two days, and that Israel was about to be conquered by literally hundreds of thousands of foreign soldiers. So many of the Youtube rabbis went crazy about all these 'predictions'. Guess what?
Moshiach didn’t come then, either.
The local makolet guy started wearing a kippa and laying his tefillin after he saw that video, around Rosh Hashana 5776. By the end of the year, when Moshiach hadn’t shown up and ‘armageddon’ hadn’t kicked off, as predicted, he took it off again.
THAT'S THE PROBLEM WITH PREDICTIONS BASED ON CALCULATIONS
So we can see, ‘predictions’ about Moshiach coming aren’t always helpful. But there’s a different between trying to CALCULATE the end, with all sorts of fancy gematrias and kabbalistic ideas, and between actually KNOWING that we’re at the end.
And I think what is going on now, with Rav Kanievsky, and the Milkman, and Rav Kook, and Rav Berland, is that they actually KNOW we are at the end, just Moshiach hasn’t been revealed yet.
To be clear, that could mean that Moshiach has actually come, that the true tzaddikim already know who he is and that he’s here, but that we haven’t yet merited for him to be revealed yet – which means no-one is making calculations about anything. They are simply referring to a factual occurrence that they are aware of, but that other people don’t know about.
Here’s some quotes to give us an idea about what our job actually is, at this period of time:
WE HAVE TO OWN UP TO OUR OWN FLAWS, INSTEAD OF POINTING FINGERS AT OTHERS
Rav Berland once said: “People think that Moshiach can come without prayer. That a person can simply travel to Uman, press a button, and Moshiach will appear. He’ll be there at the tziyun, and just needs to press a certain secret button, and then Moshiach will appear.
Moshiach can’t come until we do true teshuvah with a truly broken heart, and have true shmiras einayim!
“It’s time to cry out, ‘We are guilty!’ and then Moshiach will really come, and Moshiach will be revealed. Moshiach wants to be revealed at every moment. Motzoei Shemittah — this is the time that Moshiach needs to be revealed.”
The Rav concluded that all the wars, the intifada and the dangers that will accompany the coming of the Moshiach are only to get people to wake up and do teshuvah, so that we’ll cry out “We are guilty! That’s it,” he said. “That’s all we need to do.”
ATTENTION, ALL LITVAKS: WANTING MOSHIACH ALSO APPLIES TO YOU
Rav Yehezkel Levenstein, ztl, the former mashgiach ruchani (spiritual guide) of the Mir yeshiva, wrote in his book Or Yehezkel (7) the following words about the importance of believing in, and hoping for, the coming of Moshiach.
“Emuna (belief) in the coming redemption is one of our fundamental obligations. And not just a grudging, low level of emuna; the Rambam writes that: “A person is obligated to stand and wait for the coming of Moshiach, and anyone who doesn’t wait [i.e. anticipate Moshiach’s coming] is a heretic.
“And even though the whole of the nation of Israel believes in and recognizes the [idea of the] coming of the Moshiach, there is still an obligation to wait for it, and to anticipate it actually happening, and anyone who stops anticipating [the coming of Moshiach], even for just an hour, we see from this that they are not a believer.
“Once a person really expects and yearns for the coming of the Melech Moshiach (King Moshiach), then any of the occurrences happening in the world appear to him to be a hint, or connected with the [imminent] redemption, and will cause him to think that maybe, the Melech Moshiach is truly on the threshold [of being revealed].
“It should be underlined that people don’t see the signs of redemption because they don’t think about it all, or reflect on the matter [of Moshiach coming]. I remember how the Chofetz Chaim, ztl, used to wait for it, and connect everything to the geula (redemption).”
Elsewhere, Rav Levenstein returns to the subject, and adds: “The Rambam already wrote that anyone who doesn’t wait for him [i.e. the Moshiach] to come every single day, is a heretic in regard to the whole Torah. And this is particularly true in our time, when we shouldn’t only wait and hope for the Melech Moshiach, but actually know that we are in the days when Moshiach will come.”
MOSHIACH’S COMING WON’T CHANGE ANYTHING
(Excerpted from One in a Generation)
When Rav Berland was in South Africa during the summer of 2015, he gave a shiur where he explained that the revelation of the Moshiach wouldn’t change anything at all in the world. Until everyone did teshuvah, there simply couldn’t be a true redemption, and the real work of the Moshiach would be to bring everyone in the world back to God.
At that time, he said:
“These next six years, from 5775 to 5781 (2014-2021), are the years of redemption. These are the years when the whole of Am Yisrael will do teshuvah; even the biggest criminals and thugs are going to do teshuvah. There are no criminals in Am Yisrael, there are no wicked people in Am Yisrael. It’s all just stages of the redemption [process.] It’s all just stages in the evolution of the neshamah, in receiving the different stages of the soul. The biggest criminal is going to end up being the biggest tzaddik…
“We also need to bring the 70 nations back in repentance. The King Moshiach is going to return all the nations back to God, because God forbid that even a single goy should die! We don’t want any non-Jews to die, except for [exceptionally evil] people like Hitler, yimach shmo, but even common murderers can do teshuvah.”
REDEMPTION IS A PROCESS
The Rav was sending a clear message that redemption is a process, and that the process that will culminate in true peace, and the coming of the Jewish redeemer, is already occurring right now, however it may look externally.
Moshiach, “the son of Yishai,” is likened to a sprout for a very good reason: For many long weeks, months and even years, the seed of Moshiach lays underground, hidden from public view, apparently decaying and rotting away. Until… that first sprout of redemption finally bursts forth.
May it be speedily in our days, amen.
SUMMING IT ALL UP:
So, lots to think about here. The key points are this:
Over to you, dear readers.
As you can probably tell, I’ve been feeling extremely out of it the last few days. True, there’s a lot of stressful things going on in my life at the moment; true, I have no idea where I’m going to be living in six weeks time; true, I’m trying to avoid a court battle with a bunch of very immature wannabe fraudsters who think that yelling lies at people counts as a discussion.
But honestly? When am I not dealing with a bunch of psychos, when am I not having huge uncertainty about where to live, when is life not stressful? Things have been that way forever, and I usually cope much better with it all than I am at the moment.
Since Rav Berland and Rav Kook got together on Rosh Chodesh Nissan to ‘bring Moshiach’ on March 17th the world has been steadily getting crazier and crazier. The day they got together, there was a huge spike in the Schumann Resonance on earth, which is the energetic frequency that all creation 'vibrates' to, physically.
There was some very strange, never-before-seen energy being picked up on the Schumann Resonance that day these two holy men got together, and clearly, something 'new' started to come down to the world as a result.
That same day, the extreme weather started going crazy all over the world - cyclones in Australia, crazy flooding in Hawaii, Saudi Arabia got hit with massive hail and lightning storms, as did South Africa, Brazil had flash flooding washing cars and trucks down the street, snow in Morocco. This was the beginning of the weather craziness that has been continuing ever since.
Do you know when things started to pick up in Syria? April 13th - that's when the US, UK and France bombed Assad's forces for using chemical weapons.
When the US pulled out of the agreement with Iran? May 9th.
Do you know when Hamas started trying to storm the border between Southern Israel and Gaza? March 30th.
Do you know how many freak weather records have been broken since then, worldwide, how many volcanoes are exploding, how many earthquakes are being registered all over the place (including another one just yesterday in the UK?) Lots and lots.
The news is full of weird weather, strange incidents of animals going beserk and killing people in ‘once in a century’ events like when that man got killed by a cougar on America’s West Coast, or this woman got gored by a bison (!) in Yellowstone Park, or when this Pastor got eaten by a crocodile, of all the tens of children who are being savaged to death by wild dogs in India in unprecedented attacks?
The animals are all going crazy!
The animals know something is coming down the pipe.
And I think I’m feeling it too. I go to sleep exhausted, but wake up two hours later for absolutely no reason, feeling absolutely wired an unable to go back to sleep. I close my eyes and I can ‘feel’ them jumping around, like there’s an earthquake going on inside my head. Some days, I’m so listless and spaced-out I can barely move – and I know it’s not just me that’s having some of these weird symptoms, albeit I seem to be getting them more intensely.
Something is coming down the pipe.
The summit of the volcano at Kilauea in Hawaii has collapsed across the caldera in a spectacular manner. Either that means the volcano is now capped at that location, or it means it’s going to explode if and when the magma flows back in.
In the meantime, fissure 8, 24 miles away in the Leilani estates, has turned into a new and growing volcano, and lava from that new volcano completely filled in the Kapoho Bay and solidified a mile out to sea past the coast. Now, some of the hundreds, maybe even thousands of the underwater volcanoes surrounding Hawaii are starting to re-activate.
The huge volcano at Mayotte which apparently hasn’t erupted in 5,000 years even according to incorrect scientific dating is re-activating. The volcano in New Zealand is re-activating. The volcanos in Guatemala you already heard about – but this is the tip of the iceberg.
For every one of the 1,500 active volcanos they know about, there could be another 100 under the sea.
I have this feeling in my bones that something big is coming down the pipe. I’m not getting that feeling because I’m reading stuff, it’s the other way around: I feel something huge is in the air and I’m reading stuff to try to figure out what that might be.
Everywhere I look, I see fire.
Fire in Hawaii, Fuego – fire – in Guatamala, houses being destroyed by lightning strikes in England (!), fire in the south of Israel as the crops burn from Hamas and their Molotov cocktail-carrying kites. The Prophet Zechariah tells us: “I will bring that third into fire and purify it, as one purifies silver.”
And then it goes on to talk about mountains splitting, and massive earthquakes, and huge celestial disturbances which leave the world in a weird twilight that is neither day or night, and culminate with the total reshaping of Eretz Yisrael into a plain.
All the mountains will be flattened, and the land will expand like the skin of a gazelle, to accommodate all the Jews who will be rushing back here to live.
Those things don’t happen gently.
They happen with enormous seismic activity, with volcanoes exploding, with tsunamis and with utter chaos and awe at the might of Hashem.
And they don’t happen over four billion years, they happen in a day.
Just like the Big Island of Hawaii got completely reshaped in a day. It lost a bay and its biggest lake, and gained a new volcano and a mile long stretch of brand new coastline – all in a day.
I have the feeling something big is coming down the pipe. And in the meantime, trying to function as a (semi…) normal human being the last few days has got pretty hard.
A little while back, I got an email from a reader telling me I had to read this book By Rav Avraham Sutton, called Spiritual Technology. I started tracking it down to the Pomerantz Bookstore in Jerusalem, when this very special reader got back in touch to tell me she could give me her copy, as she was visiting Jerusalem shortly.
We met; I got the book; I read it over Shabbat two weeks’ ago – and it has a lot of very interesting information that does shed some light on so many of the things we’re all struggling with today, including how technology has taken over our lives, whether it’s good or bad, spiritually, and how all this may be affecting the rectification of the world and the geulah.
Rav Sutton explains that ‘technology’, which the dictionary defines as 'the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes', comes from the Greek work tehkne, and is in direct opposition to the Jewish word tikkun, which refers to rectifying the world spiritually.
Greek tehkne is all about making life easier, controlling nature and the environment, and externalizing the human soul in so many cheap, superficial ways.
By contrast, Jewish tikkun is about rectifying the world at its spiritual root, nullifying ourselves to God’s will, and building up the strength of the human soul internally so that many of ‘technology’s’ achievements can be accomplished in a much purer form.
This is the ultimate goal of humanity, and this is the world we are heading towards with the dawn of the coming of Moshiach.
A world where people can transcend the physical body, and travel all over the globe without airplanes, and connect to others without phones, and who can access tremendous knowledge directly from the spiritual realm, via a very strong bond with Hashem.
It sounds a little crazy and far-fetched, doesn’t it?
In the past, I’ve had a few arguments with readers here about the role technology has to play in this future world. Even before I read Rav Sutton’s book, it seemed to me that the rabbis’ call to ditch i-Phones, etc, was coming from a very deep understanding of the true damage they are doing to people’s souls.
Most of us have no idea of what’s really playing out here between Greek tehkne and Jewish tikkun, or what’s at stake.
So, here’s a few excerpts from Rav Sutton’s book, to get the ball rolling:
“External technology [in ancient Egypt] hadn’t developed to the point it has today. Nevertheless, the chartumim had direct access to what we may call psychic technology…In a sense, Pharoah’s magicians were the equivalent of today’s scientists. It’s just that their ability to manipulate physical reality was through magic and psychic manipulation.”
“Alienation as we find it in modern society is almost total…Man has created a world of man-made things as it never existed before. He has constructed a complicated social machine to administer the technical machine he built.
“Yet, this whole creation of his stands over and above him. [He is] the servant of a Golem which his hands have built. The more powerful and gigantic the forces are which he unleashes, the more powerless he feels himself as a human being…He is owned by his own creation and has lost ownership of himself. He has built a golden calf, and says “These are your gods, O Israel, who have brought you out of Egypt.” – (Quote from Erich Fromm)
“It is axiomatic that true spirituality cannot be selfish and self-serving.”
“When the connection between heaven and earth is broken, we lose the understanding that behind every physical process, there is a spiritual process making it happen…preceding it, activating it, and guiding it through every stage of its evolution and development.”
Zohar, Ki Tisa, 2:191a states: “The Erev Rav consisted of all the magicians of Mitzrayim.”
“The letters of the first tablets (luchot) – embodying the [much higher spiritual] level of the Tree of Life – could not exist in close proximity with the coarse consciousness of the golden calf (i.e. technology in the service of magic.)”
“Torah / kabbalah describes evil as being without any real ‘mind’ of its own. It is best imagined as a mechanical force that has one primary function: it grabs onto everything and anything in order to own it.
“It is the will to receive, in its most extreme, negative and ugliest form. You can always identify a person or a nation that has… become an instrument of evil: it inevitably wants to own you and everything else in the world. This force acts within the human personality as well.”
“The klipot (forces of evil) draw their life-force and nourishment from the souls that they hold captive under their dominion… This is why the klipot exert such effort to cause humans to sin.” Sefer HaGilgulim.
(Hans Morovec is a scientist, and the director of the Mobile Robot Laboratory of Carnegie Mellon University):
“Morovec calmly explains how within the next 30 years we will bypass the present limits upon artificial intelligence and robotic mobility, to the point where we will be able to ‘download’ all of the content of our brains – which are now unfortunately stuck in decaying biological entities – into computers housed within mobile robots, thereby gaining ‘us’ immortality, via these machines. The machines will ‘evolve’ by their own design…and will generate ideas and actions that will far exceed human evolution.”
( Master magicians of Egypt)
Let’s stop there for now, and put together some take home conclusions from what we’ve learned so far:
1) Today’s scientists are yesterday’s ancient Egyptian magicians, and the root of today's 'Erev Rav' tendencies. The Egyptian magicians were also extremely precise, their magic also followed very detailed calculations and rules, and it was all focused on taking power away from Hashem, and trying to control the world and the environment.
2) The Egyptian magicians – like so many of today’s scientists – were also obsessed with ideas of ‘immortality’. Ancient Egypt tried to do this by embalming the body to keep a degree of the lowest soul level, or nefesh, trapped in this world forever, in an attempt to defy God and His justice.
3) Egyptian / Greek technology is doing its best to get people to sin, and to break the connection between us and God. That’s why they’ve come up with all these huge lies about the theory of evolution, the age of the world, the ‘progress’ to be achieved via i-Phones and the internet, pretend cures for cancer, fracking wells and all the rest of it.
4) In the future world of moshiach, we won’t need all this technology, as we’ll be able to tap into the unvarnished power of the soul to do all the good things technology enables us to do without it. That’s what we’re aiming at, strange as all this sounds to our modern, materialistic, technology-dependent ears.
5) The true 'Golden Calf' today is anything that takes the power or honor away from Hashem, and gives it to 'science' instead. If you think that pill is 'curing' your headache, or that the Iron Dome is 'protecting' Israel, or that Darwin and science knows more about the true age of the world than the Torah does - you are effectively worshipping the Golden Calf.
There’s so much more to say about this, as always, but let me leave you with this out of office message that my husband got yesterday from one of his non-Jewish clients:
"I found myself constantly looking at my mobile for no good reason, often in front of my children.
I am experimenting with checking my emails once a day so if you need me urgently please call me or text on [number]. Otherwise I will respond to your email as soon as I am able to.
Thanks for helping me break this cycle!!!"
The push-back against technology and towards true tikkun is beginning.
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.
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.
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.
