Rabbi Amnon Yitzchak, a prominent Haredi rabbi, confirmed that it is possible that the earth could be catastrophically bombarded by asteroids within the next few weeks as part of the Messianic process described in the Bible.
Rabbi Yitzchak is very well-known as a charismatic speaker who attracts crowds of thousands all around the world. Raised in a secular Yemenite home, he has influenced many secular Israelis to become religious.
In a Hebrew-language recording posted on YouTube last month, Rabbi Yitzchak discussed the controversy surrounding predictions of the catastrophic arrival of the super-comet, Nibiru. He confirmed that it is clearly a possibility according to the Bible.
Rabbi Yitzchak: Comet is Threatening the Entire Planet [HEBREW]
“In about a month and a half, they say a meteor will pass over the earth, and when it passes, it will send meteors onto the planet,” the rabbi said. “They say it will be a meteor strike the likes of which the world has never seen. And there is a great suspicion that as a result of this enormous catastrophe that they speak of, multitudes will be killed.”
“Some of these meteors are supposed to be enormous. That is what they say, and I am not responsible for what they say.”
The rabbi continued, “But if this is true, what they say, then it was spoken about in Ezekiel 38:22. The prophet said God will rain down fire and sulfur, and it is also written in Zechariah 13:8, that two thirds of the world will be killed.
“So this is certainly possible. It may be that this fire from heaven will come as a result of the war of Gog and Magog, in which the prophets say fire and brimstone will rain down from heaven, or it may be that it will come as a result of this asteroid.”
The rabbi explained, “The question about brimstone from heaven is will it be missiles that fly outside the atmosphere and fall back down, atomic bombs, or like we had in previous generations, when god rained fire and brimstone from heaven.”
Rabbi Yitzchak was clear on the course people must take.
“So there remain a few more weeks for you to dream that you are part of the third that will survive, or to consider if it is more likely you will be part of the two-thirds who will be buried in the ground,” he said.
“But there is a promise from God that Israel will always remain, even if it is only a few.
“What you need to ask is what is more difficult; to keep kosher, refrain from eating unclean food, or to survive such an event?”
“I didn’t say it will happen or it won’t happen, but there are verses in the prophets, and these verses must come to be, one day, one way or another,” Rabbi Yitzchak asserted.
“I just gave you something to think about. If it is from the comet, things will become clear very soon. They say they have missiles and planes that will take care of the problem, but that also remains to be seen,” he continued.
“In the meantime, we certainly have the issue of eating non-kosher food. It is certainly worth taking care of that so that you can be one of those who is merited with serving God, so yu should therefore take care of that issue.”
Breaking Israel News has been following the predictions of Nibiru closely. Many of the predictions are based on what has been heard from autistic religious Jews in Israel who reportedly communicate spiritual messages through facilitated communication.
This follows the Talmudic teaching (Baba Batra 12:b) that “Since the Temple was destroyed, prophecy was taken from the prophets and given to fools and children”.
Since the original predictions, more rabbis have begun to discuss the issue. Rabbi Moshe Sternbuch, a very prominent rabbi in Jerusalem, recently told his student, Rabbi Daniel Travis, that that the appearance of a star at the End of Days is plainly spoken of in the Zohar, Judaism’s primary mystical text.
Rabbi Mattiyahu Glazerson has released two videos about Nibiru,using bible codes from the book of Deuteronomy and a passage from the Zohar.
The enormous comet is supposed to pass near the earth on March 26, and leave a trail of rock and debris. The debris will fall to earth in the form of an unprecedented meteorite shower, some meteorites large enough to do serious damage, smashing cities or creating tsunamis.
