Greetings Everyone, I want to thank all of the people following me on twitter and here at stgenepress.com. The more you follow, the more I'm inspired to post! Before I start my blog, I must state that I'm not a End- Times prophet or follower. I believe it is import to examine everything. If I use something I only do so after conducting the proper historic research before hand. I have spent the last 14 years on some of the information I posted over the last two weeks. I do not believe we are in the End of Days. I'm a historian with much better insight into the past than the future. The prophecy I follow corresponds more to the Old Testament and Talmud predictions of the coming of Jesus. We must not forget the first generation of Christians believed Jesus would return in their lifetime, and the Christians in Europe believed Jesus would return in the year 1000. I myself have seen the beginning of the End-Times several times in my life. In the 1980s it was the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, in the 1990s it was the Persian Gulf War, in the 2000s it was Y2K then the Iraqi War, and in 2012 it was the Mayan calendar. We should live our lives to the fullest everyday even if Jesus is not returning soon; something nobody can predict. That being said, if the oceans boil, fish die, the earth shakes, and fire falls from the sky, it might be the beginning of the End-Times.
The main topic of this week is the wisdom of the Talmud. It states (from my book),
For Jews, an eclipse occurring at any time was an ominous sign ... etc. The Babylonian Talmud Sukkah Tract 29a regards it as a bad omen:
The rabbis taught: An eclipse of the sun is an ill omen to the whole world. What does this resemble? A human king making a banquet for his servants, and placing a great lantern before them, when he gets angry he says to his servant: Take away the light, let them sit in the dark. We have learned in a Boraitha: R. Meir said: When the sun and the Moon are eclipsed, it is a bad sign to the enemies of the Israelites (meaning, the Israelites themselves), because they are used to troubles: it is equal to the teacher’s coming to the school with his whip in his hand. Who is more afraid? The child used to being beaten.

This shows that the Talmud is full of wisdom. I live in Illinois. During and after the Great American Eclipse, it was colder than normal. I'm not a professional weatherman, but understand that the cold northern weather added to the intensity of the hurricanes (we even witnessed a hurricane hit Ireland). Did the storms and following downpour of water contribute to the earthquakes in nearby Mexico and firestorms in California? Did the anxiety caused by the flux of the storms lead to mass shootings? Maybe or Maybe not, but the Talmud called it right this time. Once again this not beginning of the End-Times, but shows the Talmud predicted a Solar Eclipse not being good for the world. For those of you asking what does this have to do with the Integral Existence of Jesus? Keep it in back of your mind, it will come up in a couple of weeks when I get to the Star of Bethlehem. On Friday I will discuss why Christians banned, burned, and outlawed the Talmud. For more on the history behind what the Talmud is and why Christians quickly dismissed it I recommend reading The Essence of Perfection. God Bless!
14 years ago I became interested in the date that Jesus was born. This led to several years of research, I quickly realized that there was no valid information that provided any real answers to this question. Since this website is getting some interest I will post from time to time some of the information I learned during this quest.
