Comet Elenin was discovered by Doctor-Scientist Leonid Elenin on 10 December 2010 from his research facility in Lyubertsy utilizing images acquired from the 18-inch (45-cm) telescope at the ISON-NM Observatory near Mayhill, New Mexico and confirmed by Doctor-Scientists Aleksei Sergeyev and Artem Novichenko from the Maidanak Observatory in Uzbekistan. Doctor-Scientist Leonid Elenin. Interesting to note about Comet Elenin is that even though the American space agency NASA has said “Because of the possibility that the comet’s orbit slightly deviate from, there is no guarantee that Earth will be missed”, they have, also, in contradiction, stated that “…Comet Elenin will come nowhere near the Earth. Our world had been forewarned about by the former Canadian Defense Minister, Paul Hellyer, who stated about them: “Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about where we were headed and offered to help. But instead we, or at least some of us, interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after.” So, expect the worst without fears.

I go about reading articles written about how Yahushua did not meet the criteria of being the Messiah saying that he did not fulfill any of the prophesies about him. And there was the question about genealogies which supposedly did not really point to him. When he came he had nothing to redeem Israel as he came a servant and not someone powerful enough to instill fear among all nations and what is more he died a cruel death disappointing those who are ready to grip power beside him. It may have even put them to shame because he was too meek. I understand what they mean. Yet in spite of all these, I am still reluctant to give credence to the argument. In the meantime I savor all the unpleasant taste of the words thrown at him who willingly "laid down his life for his friends". Why he did do it? Are there any super natural reasons behind it? And was that enough to save mankind from their sins and wickedness? Why couldn't people believe that his death could save them if they only believe? Sooner or later the truth of the matter will surface as clear as crystal for all to see. Now they refuse to acknowledge it. They think that they don't need a Messiah even if YHWH did give a son to make known his father's name to the world. May all be with enlightened with wisdom and understanding.

It seems that everything around me is crumbling. Destruction of everything that was safe haven before. I can see it every where. Everything that was strong foundation before which is evident even in things that was created by mortal man. Calamities are every where. Floods of great waters, typhoons destroy everything in its path. All that seemed strong is destroyed in a twinkling of an eye. Everything. While things and structures are crumbling on the way side. Society, communities and families are being destroyed through the deterioration of morals. Philosophies and religions are not exempt. What has been strong tower and refuge are now being attacked by new ideas that was unthinkable before. What was good is being labeled as evil. I now wonder where to find good and peace and acceptance and love. I can't find it anywhere. I don't know what to believe and what to trust. The way is not clear. The path has darkened. Even as there is flash floods every where that take away lives, there is also the quiet flash floods of beliefs that carry away souls. Father Yahuwah, let me not be taken away in this. Let me remain in you alone

Here's a wonderful article by Tzvi about prayer and how YHWH sees things. May we learn from it. Question: When Moses saw things backfired in Egypt, he complained to G‑d, "Why have you done bad to these people? From the time You sent me, things have gotten worse instead of better!" Didn't G‑d know that things had gotten worse? Isn't G‑d aware of what's going on in His world? Why does He need Moses to tell him? Response: G‑d sees all and knows all. But sometimes you need a report from down on the ground...G‑d has two views of reality. One is the grand view from above. From there, the ugliness blends with its context to create even greater beauty. All is exquisite and ideal, a perfect whole. Then He has the view from within. Within time, within space, within the confines of a flesh body that cringes at pain and is outraged at suffering; a view for which the now is more real than a thousand years of the future. The view not of the Composer, but of those who must play the music. And sometimes, what looks magnificent from above, is the pits from within. Both views are true. Both views are G‑d. In the Torah, the view from above is presented in G‑d's voice. G‑d's view from within is presented in the voice of Moses. The two come together to compose the ultimate truth of Torah. Moses was simply practicing a common Jewish habit: Kvetching to G‑d. We call it prayer. It's the pencil granted us by the Composer. We preface our prayer with the verse, "G‑d, open my lips, that my mouth may speak Your praise." We ask, in other words, that our prayers should be the words of G‑d from within, speaking to G‑d as He stands above. By Tzvi Freeman http://www.chabad.org

There is going to be a SUPER LUNAR ECLIPSE this coming December 10, 2011. There are many ideas that spring from stories about it. Here is one that seems to have bearing on the lives of people who believe in YHWH like myself. The sun, moon, and stars were not created for their light alone. Eclipses - the absence of the light of these luminary bodies - serve an important function, as well. In fact, this function is listed in the passuk before their responsibility to provide light to the world: "And Hashem said, 'Let their be luminaries in the heavens...and they will serve as signs,'" which, as Rashi explains, refers to eclipses which are seen as a bad sign for the world, "...and they shall be luminaries in the heaven," understood by Rashi as referring to the light which they provide. Rashi writes "When you perform the will of the Al-mighty, you need not worry from disaster [during the eclipses]." Hazal have taught us specifically regarding what we need to be careful: "Because of four things eclipses occur - false tale-bearers, false witnesses, those who raise small cattle [and allow the sheep to destroy other people's property], and those who cut down good trees [meaning, fruit-bearing trees, an act which demonstrates his lack of appreciation to Hashem]..." What is the common denominator of these four violations? Each of them, in its own way, constitutes an "eclipse" of its own, a transformation of light into darkness. There is no greater eclipse of light than by darkening one's reputation through false rumors, allegations, and testimonies. Similarly, sending one's sheep into the property of another, ruining his trees for some immediate need, chopping down a tree and showing disrespect for the great kindness of our Creator - all these activities serve to eclipse our value system. When an actual, astronomical eclipse occurs, there opens, as it were, room for the prosecutor to bring us to task for these moral eclipses... The continuing battles being fought through mass media, words transmitted verbally and electronically - who can possibly begin to imagine the amount of degradation, humiliation, scorn and contempt which is continually passed through these means of communication? False rumors, created from thin air, substantiated by false testimonies with no sense of common decency and concern for others - and all this captures the attention of a more-than-eager readership! Perhaps the eclipse thus arrives at the perfect time, to turn our attention to the moral eclipses which occur in our lives on a daily basis.
