If the geulah will be through the merits of Israel it will be a thing of wonder and the redeemer of Israel will be revealed from the Heavens with wonder and sign, as it says in the Zohar.
This is hinted at in the statement that “a star shoots forth from Yaakov” that the redeemer will shine forth from the Heavens. And there is also a hint to the star which goes forth in the midst of the Heavens as a wondrous miracle as it says in the Zohar.
Take a look at these passages from the Holy Zohar.
“At 66 years Melech HaMashiach will be revealed in the land of the Galil…”
We have reached the 66th year.
…when a star on the East side will swallow seven stars on the North side, and a flame of black fire will be hanging in the firmament 60 days…
We will see this star. With our own eyes. Moshiach’s star.
You can’t see it now, because the window did not yet open. When it opens, we will see it.
…wars will be awakened in the world on the North side…
There will be wars, but they will be between the trouble-makers themselves. Even a “sword of peace” will not cross the land.
Now is a good time to do many good deeds, to accelerate the process.
“The Land of Israel is the safest place”, a promise of the Torah. This is true materially; how much more is it true spiritually. Put yourself in “the land of Israel” wherever you happen to be, and no sword shall pass there.
More to come
Rav Mordechai Eliyahu ztz”l used to say that the Holocaust was the War of Gog and Magog, as it is written in the Gemara that the Holy One Blessed Be He could consider Hezkiya to be Mashiach and Sancheriv as Gog and Magog, but the sin caused this not to be so (Sanhedrin 94).
If so, it’s possible to consider the Holocaust as the war of Gog and Magog. We have suffered enough.
Rav Eliyahu related that someone argued on his view and said that his words were not correct and that the War of Gog and Magog will be coming in the future, and he brought all types of proofs that it had not yet occurred.
The Rav told him: “Whoever thinks that there needs to be a War of Gog and Magog will be in this war, while those who hold that it has occurred already will be exempt from it.”

It sounds very dramatic: “DOOMSDAY” (!) — and it seems to fit the description.
But…it isn’t really Doomsday at all. (Sorry to disappoint…)
When children go to the “Haunted House” at the amusement park, they get scared. The parents are not scared. And in the end, nobody is touched, even not a hair on the head.
There is no “safe place” because every Jew is inherently safe. The question is:
Is our trust in the Almighty G-d like that of a child, or like that of a parent?
Each one’s outlook will determine his or her view,
Whichever the case, every Jew will come out untouched, awakening to the light of the long-awaited redemption.
But the Holy One, blessed be He, is helping us to grow out of being children. The posts on this site are intended to be a contribution in that direction: knowing what to expect is a big part of the difference between the child and the parent (the other part–bigger and far more important–is knowing Who is really in control and trusting in His benevolence).
The seemingly physical walls of this world of exile and lies will fall, we must know that we are not falling with it.
Be happy–the “Doomsday” of the world of lies is the liberation of truth and the Holy Nation!
…to be continued…
The world will tremble. It has already begun, and will increase. Those who say so are correct.
Earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, you name it. One here, one there, another someplace else. The pace will increase. But casualties will not be enormous. Chesed Hashem–this is Geulah, after all!
Don’t waste your time on “earthquake watch”, the “volcano watch”:
This doesn’t bring Mashiach.
Learn Torah, do good deeds–this brings Mashiach.
The pace of “tremblings” will increase until “the entire world will shake and all world will hide themselves in caves and clefts in the rocks, and they won’t think to be saved.” (Zohar Shemot 7a)
(There is a place on earth where these tremblings will not be felt, but there is no purpose to publicize it.)
Read the post of references to the Zohar here.
It describes a “Star War”: 1 star from the East warring against 7 stars. The earth trembling and quaking, fire from beneath the ground.
As they say, “It’s all good”.
The people of the world lately celebrated “Happy New Year”. It is now, as is written on the calendars, the year they refer to as 2012. (Since Creation, it is already the year 5772, however.)
According to R’ Google, the year 2012 goes very well with the word “Doomsday”.
First of all, relax.
But everything is by Divine Providence Hasgacha Pratit and if the world is buzzing about the End, we have to look in Torah (and especially the Zohar, as we will see) to see if there is any message of truth here.
What does 2012 have to do with Mashiach?
What does “Doomsday” have to do with the final Redemption?
