The Ten Signs

10 signs will come onto the world adjacent to the coming of Moshiach were revealed to Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, zs'l, as follows:

First Sign:
Three pillars of fire will come down from heaven and will stand from the earth to the heaven for three days and three nights. All the nations will panick and tell Am Israel: "Make us Tzizit for us to wear!" As it says in Zecharia 8:23
"אשר יחזיקו עשרה אנשים מכל לשונות הגויים והחזיקו בכנף איש יהודי לאמר: נלכה עמכם! כי שמענו אלהים עמכם!
Ten men shall take hold, out of all the languages of the nations, shall even take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying: We will go with you, for we have heard that God is with you."

HKB'H will make miracles in the earth and heaven, as it says in Yoel 3;3
וְנָתַתִּי, מוֹפְתִים, בַּשָּׁמַיִם, וּבָאָרֶץ: דָּם וָאֵשׁ, וְתִימְרוֹת עָשָׁן.
And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke."
Why blood before fire? Because as it was in Egypt.

Second Sign:
Three men will go out, one of them will stand over the grave and awaken the dead, the second man will light his eyes and skin, and the third man will heal the cripple with magic. 80,000 of Am Israel will erroneously follow them - and they are not from Bnei Israel, they are from the Givonim and mobs that mixed in with Am Israel. HKB'H will refine everyone as it says in Zecharia 13;9
"וּצְרַפְתִּים כִּצְרֹף אֶת-הַכֶּסֶף and will refine them as silver is refined"

Third Sign:
HKB'H will take out three rainbows and they will stand in the heaven for three days and three nights. The rainbows will be seen from one end of the world till its end and none will not look alike. All the nations will see and feel tremendeous fear and say: "HKB"H is bringing the Great Flood to the world? G.od has promised that He will not bring the Great Flood into the world." As it says in Isiah 54;9
כִּי-מֵי נֹחַ, זֹאת לִי, אֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּעְתִּי מֵעֲבֹר מֵי-נֹחַ עוֹד, עַל-הָאָרֶץ.
" For this is as the waters of Noah unto Me; for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth."
And the same way He swore not to bring the Great Flood into the world, He swore not to rebuke, as it says Isiah 54;9 כֵּן נִשְׁבַּעְתִּי מִקְּצֹף עָלַיִךְ, וּמִגְּעָר-בָּךְ
"So have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee."

Samuel 1 2:4 קֶשֶׁת גִּבֹּרִים, חַתִּים; וְנִכְשָׁלִים, אָזְרוּ חָיִל
The bows of the mighty men are broken, and they that stumbled are girded with strength
Who will stumble? These are Am Israel, as it says in Samuel 2 22;40
"ותזרני חיל למלחמה For Thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle."

Fourth Sign:
Rain will come down from heaven for three days and three night but it isn't rainwater, it's blood. 80,000 of the men that went astray after the 3 false messengers will drink from this water and die. Every man and woman that went after them will drink and die.

Fifth Sign:
HKB'H will send dew from heaven for three days and three night and it will heal the blood that covered the earth and will revive the grains. All the nations will think that it's rain and not dew as it says in Hosea 14;6-8: "אֶהְיֶה כַטַּל לְיִשְׂרָאֵל ...יָשֻׁבוּ יֹשְׁבֵי בְצִלּוֹ, יְחַיּוּ דָגָן
"I will be as the dew unto Israel.... They that dwell under his shadow shall again make corn to grow"

Sixth Sign:
It will darken for three days and three night on the nations and it will be light for Am Israel, as it says in Isaiah 60;2 "כי הנה החשך יכסה ארץ וערפל לאומים, ועליך יזרח ה
For, behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples; but upon thee Hashem will arise, and His glory shall be seen upon thee'"
And all the nation will feel tremendeou fears and will come and bow to Israel and say, (Zecharia 8;23) "נלכה עמכם, כי שמענו אלהים עמכם
"We will go with you, for we have heard that G.od is with you."

Seventh Sign:
King of Edom will come to Jerusalem and all the Ishmaelim will run away from him and will go to Yemen. They will gather into a big army and one will emerge from them and his name is Hatar and will be crowned as the king. They will all go to Batzra and the King of Edom will hear this and will follow them and they will make a war against one another, as it says Isaiah 34;6
"כִּי זֶבַח לַיהוָה בְּבָצְרָה, וְטֶבַח גָּדוֹל בְּאֶרֶץ אֱדוֹם
for HaShem hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Edom"
Hatar will kill many from Edom and the king of Edom will run away from him and Hatar will die. The king of Edom will return a second time to Yerushalayim and will enter the Heichal (temple) and will place the crown on his head on the fountain stone and say, "Creator of the World! I have already returned what my forefathers have taken..." In his days there will be tragedies.

Eighth Sign:
HKB'H will suddenly take out Nechemia ben Chushiel, he is Moshiach ben Yosef, as it says in Malachi 3;1 "ופתאום יבוא אל היכלו האדון אשר אתם מבקשים
and HaShem, whom ye seek, will suddenly come to His temple"
He will make war with the king of Edom and will kill him and he will put the crown on him that the king of Edom returned to Yerushalayim and the whole world will know about Nechemia.

Ninth Sign:
A man will come out of of the Romi nation and his name is Armilus, the son of Satan, the son of the idol rock in Romi that has the image of a female and the Satan sleeps with her and this man will be born from it. On the day of his birth, he wil be like 100 years old. And he will make war in Alexandria and destroy the entire sea coast - woe is the person that will be caught by him! And then he will personally come to Gaza and prepare his 'chair' there. These are his signs.. his height is 10 amot... And he will sit on his chair and he will abuse and curse and say to the nations: "I am god! Bring me my torah that I gave you!," and he will say to Am Israel, "Bring your Torah!." And they will come with Nechemia ben Chushiel and bring him the Sefer Torah and he'll say, "I don't believe in this Torah!" and they will reply, "If you don't believe in this Torah, you are no god, you are Satan." As it says in Zecharia 3:2
'יגער ה' בך השטן HaShem will rebuke you, Satan".

At that time he will take Am Israel, the 30 that accompanied Nechemia and will burn them together with the Torah, and he will say to Nechemia, "Till now you don't have faith in me?" and he'll reply, "I believe in nothing except the Go.d of Israel, the G.od of Heaven that gave the Torah to Moshe Rabenu (zs'l) - in Him, I believe!" And he will command to kill him in the house of his gods that he placed in his palace. He will kill Nechemia in Yerushalayim and will throw his carcass in Yerushalayim. And Am Israel will eulogize him, as it says in Zecharia 12;12
"וספדה הארץ משפחות משפחות And the land shall mourn, every family".

And at that time there will be many tragedies on Am Israel and they will hide in pits and some will run away to the desert and they will sit there for 40 days and eat bitter herbs and yell from pain. And at that time, Micha'el the high Heavenly Minister will stand and say, "Creator of the World! Remember the oath You swore to their forefathers. And You promised, (Yirmiyahu 50;20) "כי אסלח לאשר אשאיר for I will pardon them whom I leave as a remnant" And HaShem will listen to the prayer of Micha'el, the Minister of Am Israel.

Tenth Sign:
HKB'H will take out of prison Moshiach ben David and thru him, Am Israel will be redeemed. And Armilus, the son of Satan, will go to the Moabite desert - and he is Armilus the son of the stone. At that hour, Am Israel will yell so loud, it will reach the heavens and the Heavenly Minister Micha'el will have mercy and will stand in prayer to HKB'H and say, "Creator of the World, remember the oath You swore to their forefathers and what you said to Your servant Moshe Rabenu (Mamidbar 14:20)
וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה, סָלַחְתִּי כִּדְבָרֶךָ And HaShem said: 'I have pardoned according to thy word."
and (Yirmiyahu 50;20)
"כי אסלח לאשר אשאיר
for I will pardon them whom I leave as a remnant"
And HaShem will listen to the prayer of Micha'el, the Minister of Am Israel.

And, (VaYikra 20;26) וִהְיִיתֶם לִי קְדֹשִׁים And ye shall be holy unto Me' - and You separated them for Your Glory!
And HKB'H will listen to the prayers of Micha'el, the Heavenly Minister of Am Israel.

And more on the tenth sign. HaShem will take out Menachem ben Amiel, Moshiach ben David, from prison as it says in Kohelet 4;14
'כי מבית הסורים יצא למלוך' For out of prison he came forth to be king."

The signs of Moshiach are: Tall, his neck is thick, his face is round like the sun, his eyes are shiny, the bottom of his feet are thick...

He wil rule all the lands and to him will be given the kingdom. And Armilus will gather the 70 nations of the world, as it says in Psalms 2;2 "יתיצבו מלכי ארץ The kings of the earth stand up" and anyone who will oppose him (Moshiach ben David) will be appended and killed by him, as it says in Isiaih 11;4 "וברוח שפתיו ימית רשע and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked." And he will kill the wicked Armilus, son of the stone, and he will redeem Am Israel and his name will be known from one end of the world to the next.

And the merciful heart shall say, "HaShem bring this hour and the end during our lifetime and the lifetime of Bnei Israel, Amen Ve'Amen!"
