I would like to get information on the second coming of our savior and what to look for as I have seen signs in the clouds of a hand from the wrist and the five fingers the only cloud in the sky another on of a sword that did not diminish when we were travelling over 39 kilometers it seems strange that I who has made so many mistakes in my life should see these signs.
Rabbi Gidon Ariel answered:
Hi Fred, thanks for writing.
First of all, as we clarify on our site Root Source, we are Orthodox Jews (except for our co-founder Bob O’Dell, who is a Christian), therefore differ a bit regarding some of the words you used. That being said, belief in a messiah in redemption times is something that Christians and Jews have in common, so I will dare field your question:-)
First, I am sorry to disappoint you, but I do not think that arrangements of clouds, signs as you call them, have any significance, because they are so easily created by winds and breezes. However, I do think that anything that helps a person improve themselves, to start thinking or think more about important things, is great, and can certainly be a message from God for them.
There are many other “signs” that we are living in the End Times, that are more actually elements of those times. The return of the Jewish People to the Land of Israel and it blossoming and prospering so much, thereby fulfilling a major biblical end times prophecy repeated numerous times in the Bible in many ways, is certainly one of those elements.
Regarding your merit to see these or any other great visions, in fact anyone’s merit, is a mystery we can be grateful for. Let us thank God that we live in such tremendous times, and pray that we continue to merit being a part of it all!
