Live Blogging the End of the World

by Reb Akiva @ Mystical Paths


We’re live blogging the Mayan predicted end of the world, from Israel!  Since according to the Jewish calendar, the new day starts with nightfall (as it says in the Torah, there was evening there was morning, one day), Friday starts NOW.  Here we go…

4:00 PM – It’s a dust storm in Jerusalem.  The air is thick and a bit hard to breath.  Could it be the end of the world?

5:45 PM – Evening prayers are held in the office building.  Everyone prays at length with seriousness, perhaps for the last time with the end of the world?

6:15 PM – My wife is late with the car for me to head home.  Could there be events already hitting where she is?  Is it the end of the world?

6:30 PM – My wife called, she’ll be arriving in a moment.  Thursday night weekend traffic (Israel work week is Sunday through Thursday) is heavy, like it might be fleeing in the end of the world.

7:15 PM – Traffic into Jerusalem was very heavy, but leaving Jerusalem very light.  Are people streaming into the Holy City for the end of the world?  No one was spotted fleeing for their lives.

7:20 PM – My 13 year old daughter asks if she can stay home from school tomorrow, since “the family should be together for the end of the world”. And do I have to finish my homework since it’s the end of the world tomorrow?  (Yes she actually said that.)

9:00 PM – It’s 9 and my children won’t go to bed.  It feels like the end of the world!  AHHHHHHH.

9:15 PM – OMG, we’re supposed to be invaded by angry gods, hit by a wayward planet, burnt to a crisp by solar flares, and thrown into chaos by the reversing of Earths’ magnetic poles.  I’m not sure my home bunker (built into all apartments in Israel) is rated for all that.

10:00 AM – Heavy rains, dust (desert sand storm) and fog at the same time.  The leaves are falling off the trees.  Is it the end of the world?  (Or just winter?)


  1. Lol, smart daughter !

  2. OMG Akiva, has the world ended in Beit Shemesh before here in Jerusalem?No updates, are you ok?

  3. And Yerushalayim will be a refuge...Let's flee to Yerushalayim!!

  5. Well maybe we are just too early, its not past midnight so technically their day has not begun but good to see you are still blogging, keeping the libels under control!

    Now if they refered to Genesis 49:10 then maybe we might take more notice. As this will too pass as a none event, while Daniel 12 begins in a few short weeks we can truly rejoice in that a period never seen such as this will commence. When no help comes to us because of our baseless hatred and libels, blame no one but ourselves for we brought this all upon us. The tikun will be intense, for what is to come has already been! Lets sit back and watch as God makes the correction. Todah raba for the slander and libels, if i could personally thank those I would. Let it begin (well after the mayan thing passes)

  6. This was great, thanks
