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.
