The 66th Year

Posted in geulah, Moshiach, zohar with tags , on February 23, 2016 by Vision of Geulah

The Zohar speaks of Moshiach being revealed in the 66th year … a star appears in the sky … wars break out … the Redemption arrives.  Translations of these passages of the Zohar were posted on this site almost 8 years ago.  That “planet” that is being spoken about lately has been under discussion (at least by the types who are concerned with such fringe ideas) for over 20 years.

What happened this year?

Why, suddenly, in the month of Shevat of this year (January, on the secular calendar) did we suddenly start hearing about a planet/star/comet coming towards Earth?  Why did the so-called “Geulah blogosphere” (did I get that right?) start murmuring about it?

What happened in Shevat of this year?  How does it connect to the “66th year” of the Zohar?

Ask Rabbi Google: What happened on Yud Shevat?

This year we entered the 66th year.

The 66th Year started on Yud Shvat this year — 5776


66th Year of…what, exactly??

Posted in Vision of Geulah on February 19, 2016 by Vision of Geulah

We have reached the stage where even the exile reveals that it is nothing more than a tool for bringing the Geulah.

Note: a crackpot-theory of a distant planet, based on a dubious reading of ancient Sumerian texts (the Torah tells us how Hashem created man, nothing to do with any alien race, thank you) gets ratcheted up a notch to become a super-crackpot-theory involving sinister global conspiracies and the imminent arrival of this dubious distant planet.

For 20 years it remains on the fringe. A Torah Jew for sure never heard of it. Suddenly it pops into the discussion of Moshiach and Geulah. What gives? 

Please, don’t be confused: it remains a crackpot-theory. But it is also a crude hint that is meant to bring our attention to the true matter at hand: in the year 66 Moshiach will be revealed…one star will appear…etc.

If this was the whole point, it would be interesting enough.  But notice: the very name they have given this star/planet/crackpot-theory is an open hint to the 66th year!

Three letters of the name (as they spell it in Hebrew) have the numerical value of 66 (6=נ=50,י=10,ו).  And what do the other three letters spell (ב,י,ר)?  

You may need to switch the letters around. Please work independently.

Furthermore: what is it the 66th year of anyway?  What happened in תשי”א – 5711?

It’s all making sense, now………………..

A Star is Born

Posted in Vision of Geulah on February 17, 2016 by Vision of Geulah

There is a buzz…it is “now trending”…a star is born (or, at least, the ” buzz” has been born).

It’s not the first time there was a buzz.

Who remembers “ErevMoshiach“, raise your hand?

That little boy (who by now might be old enough to vote) put it like this:

Two “shooting stars” will appear in the sky (“Moshiach is in them”). One comes from the earth to the sky, the other from above to below, coming and going each night. These shooting stars will “explode” every time they appear. “Two Moshiachs will come out, riding on a donkey, and they will connect (“close up together”) to be one big Moshiach. “

Mashiach’s Star: A wondrous miracle!

Posted in geulah, Moshiach, Vision of Geulah with tags , , , , on February 4, 2016 by Vision of Geulah

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.

At Sixty Six Mashiach is Revealed

Posted in Vision of Geulah on February 3, 2016 by Vision of Geulah

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

Gog and Magog–If you want it, it’s yours!

Rav Mordechai Eliyahu

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.”

Doomsday: It Isn’t Really Doomsday At All

Posted in geulah, Moshiach, Vision of Geulah on January 13, 2012 by Vision of Geulah

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,



the (gasp) "Doomsday Experience"



the (ahhh) Coming of Mashiach Experience!

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…
