The recent major earthquakes in California weren’t entirely unexpected.
The West Coast suffers tremors on a regular basis.
Still, the strength and intensity, not to mention the number of quakes in a short period of time, caught many by surprise, and raised renewed fears of a “big one” in the not-too-distant future.
One person who wasn’t at all caught off-guard was Israel’s Rabbi Mordechai Genut, who already months earlier cited rabbinic sources, which in turn cited the Bible to predict not only the earthquakes, but what’s to follow.
From Breaking Israel News:
In December, the day before the lunar eclipse appeared over the White House, BIN published an article in which Rabbi Mordechai Genut discussed the events in his book Davar B’ito, a guide to the calendar based on esoteric Jewish sources.
“A lunar eclipse in the month of Shevat is a sign of the rise of the aspect of din (judgment) in the world,” Rabbi Genut told Breaking Israel News. “This eclipse will rule over the Americas but for Israel, it will bring chesed (loving-kindness).”
“There will be a marked increase in earthquakes and volcanoes, even more than we have seen in the past year,” Rabbi Genuth said. “Just as the eclipse is a conflict between the sun and the moon to rule over the heavens, there will be a similar conflict on earth. This will begin a time when governments are in balance. Some governments that seem powerful right now will fall and others will rise in their place.”
