The Universe Is Steadily Deteriorating
And So Is The Human Race – Why
Is This Happening?
Is This Happening?
Did you know that scientists have come to the conclusion that “the universe is slowly dying”? In fact, they have found that the universe is only producing about half as much energy as it once did, and they have also found that the level of energy is continuing to fade. Not only that, our sun also appears to be dying. Solar activity has slowed down to a level not seen for about 100 years, and scientists are not quite sure what to make of it. Pretty much all scientists agree that the sun will die “one day”, but could it be possible that it is happening faster than any of them ever imagined? In addition, in this article I will include information about how the human race itself is deteriorating. There is a common misconception that humanity has been constantly improving and getting better, but scientists have discovered that the exact opposite is actually true. So why is this happening? Why is everything steadily decaying and deteriorating? End of the American Dream
The world as G-d created it is only to last until the year 6000.
To those who don't study the Torah, Gemora, Ketuvim, Chumash, they have no real idea what life is and why they are alive (I didn't use the word living because many are not really living, they are subsisting).
Humanity thinks there is no end to history. Well, there is, and we are nearing it. According to the Jewish calendar we are now in the year 5775, meaning that there are about 225 years remaining until the year 6000.
Rabbi Pinchas Winston Shlit'a writes about the End of Days. Google his name and a topic and you will find a myriad of articles, videos, and audios about the Jewish People, Eretz Israel and the End of Days. For example,
One that after a time, times-and-half and when there shall be an end to the crushing of the power of the holy nation, all this will be over." (Daniel 12:7)
Since we happened to mention it, the Zohar does take a stab at Daniel's allusion to the future redemption, as per the explanation of the Ziv HaZohar, a commentary on the Zohar itself.
. . . What he means is that the gematria of the word "moed" is 120 . . . half of moed is 60. The idea of chetzi-moed is in Daniel (12:7), when the angel swears that the life of the world will be a "moed, moadim vacheitzi." In general, there are three "moadim" (literally, appointed times) each year: Matzos, Shavuos, and Succos, the total gematria of which is 1,800. This means that, only after the 1800th year [after the destruction of the Second Temple]- according to the counting from creation- will the year of the number "sixty" arrive, at which time the redemption will begin. Since there is a difference of opinion as to when the Bais HaMikdosh was destroyed, it could be that it lasted for three years, beginning in the year 3828 and ending in the year 3830. Eighteen hundred years henceforth would be the year 5630 (1870 CE). Half of a moed, which is 60, would make the year 5660 (1900 CE), which is when Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai said the "remembrance" of the redemption would be . . .
Now, in our days, the truth of his words is evident, since the chevlei Moshiach have begun - they are persecuting the Holy Nation, murdering Jews in every place they are found. As well, major wars are beginning to occur ... (Ziv HaZohar, Zohar, 1:119a)
The Ziv HaZohar's calculation is more complex than presented here, but the main point of bringing his words is to hear his testimony of the state of Jewish security in his days. And he didn't live to witness the Holocaust!
If his explanation of the Zohar is correct, then what WE are witnessing is not the beginning of the redemption process, but perhaps the end of it. And everything that has occurred since that time has been all part of that process, both the happy and the sad events. Thus, Yechezkel prophecised:
"It shall come to pass on that day, on the day that Gog shall come against the Land of Israel," says the L-rd, G-d, "My fury shall rise up . . . And in My jealousy, in the fire of My anger, I have spoken-surely on that day there will be a great shaking in Eretz Yisroel. The fish of the sea and the birds of the sky and the beasts of the field, and all the creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the people who are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at My Presence; the mountains shall be destroyed, the steep places shall fall, and every wall will fall to the ground."(Yechezkel 38:18-20)
Let's just hope that the prophet was being allegorical. However, other prophets seemed to have echoed his words as well, such as Zechariah (12-14), Yirmeyahu (30), Daniel (11-12), and Yoel (4). There is even a reference to the war of Gog u'Magog in Tehillim as well (83).
Indeed, according to the Zohar (Shemos 7b), Moshiach's coming is supposed to stir up the nations and precipitate a major war against the Jewish people. Said Daniel:
A time of trouble such as has never been seen. (Daniel 12:1)
