Recently, a Jewish young man had a near death experience during which he reports seeing and learning many things. I’ll find a link to the extended interview to post below, but here is a neat short clip used by Ahavat Ammi to make the point that the Messiah will judge by smell… a concept largely foreign to Christendom.
Watch this 3 minute clip, then check out the below linked article from a couple years ago that explains how this is a very real possibility in how the Messiah judges people. Very interesting.
It is fascinating to see from the long version of this young man’s interview that he has literally no Scriptural background, yet he accurately portrays the two witnesses, the Mount splitting in two, the Mashiach being recognized by all, Him being sinless, etc, etc….
More interestingly, he says the Mashiach judges by smell, an idea we explored two years ago on this blog.
Long story short, this is some fascinating stuff! Hold with an open hand, but also be very serious about living righteously. We may not be saved by works, but our works will be judged according to what the Torah calls ‘righteousness.’
