Just a few days prior to the Jewish New Year, Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi, a noted kabbalist with thousands of followers in Israel, has revealed a divine redemptive plan for the world which will see Europe overrun with Muslims, Syria’s chaos spilling into the West, the US elections spelling disaster for American Jews, and Israel’s importance becoming greater than ever.
But the end result of all this strife is closer, and more rewarding, than anyone can imagine: Messiah.
“Everyone is ready, waiting for the public revelation of the Messiah!” the rabbi last week began a post on his webpage. “Everyone understands and knows that the Messiah is active right now,” he wrote, noting that all of the world events this year are merely preludes hinting at what will come.
Rabbi Ben Artzi, an Israeli rabbi who gained followers after rumors began to circulate of his prescient abilities in his youth, warned of the impending messianic war of Gog and Magog, which he said is a part of a spiritual process becoming clearly visible in the Middle East.
“God is creating Gog and Magog, a situation of tohu vavohu (unformed and void, confusion) in the entire world, in order that the Jews will understand that there is Redemption and Messiah, and that it is God protecting the Holy Land,” the rabbi said.
The chaos of the coming redemptive war is already spreading, he continued, pointing to Syria as evidence and predicting that it is just the beginning.
“Syria will continue to be wiped out. It is a wasteland, harming countries who try to intervene there,” he said, explaining that America and Russia would end up getting burned by their interference in the quagmire. “They are only engaged in blowing it up entirely, harming themselves in the process.
“Even Syria is intent on killing itself. In the end it will be a wasteland that grows, affecting everyone who comes near.”
The rabbi quoted Psalms to describe what is happening now in Syria:
Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken. Psalms 37:15
“Leaders will destroy their nations, and nations will destroy their leaders over this situation,” the rabbi predicted, noting that the crisis is already threatening to engulf neighboring Turkey.
Indeed, claiming humanitarian intent, the world’s superpowers have only succeeded in creating more destruction in Syria and bringing their own countries closer to war. The situation has already led to confrontations between Turkey, a NATO member and US ally, and Russia, with a resurrected and aggressive military.
The war will have massive and terrifying international implications, including refugee crises, Rabbi Ben Artzi continued, warning that the Syrian refugee situation in Europe today is only a small prelude to what will be. He predicted that a revolution in Turkey would send “tens of millions” of refugees from the Muslim country to Europe.
Then, he said, “Europe will become a Muslim continent and people will flee from there like from a fire.”
The ongoing Islamification of Europe is already a critical issue faced by European leaders who, after welcoming hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees into their countries last year, saw a shocking spike in radical Islam and terror attacks. Bombings, stabbings and shootings left hundreds dead across the continent.
Rabbi Ben Artzi also touched on the US presidential elections in his talk, including an unusual warning to American Jews.
“In the upcoming elections it is important to remember that the next president will be the one that God chooses,” he insisted. “They can say what they want, do what they can, but the one who will be elected is the one who loves the Jews in Israel but hates the Jews in America. That is the big surprise that will happen.”
Indeed, Israel figures large in world events, as “the entire world is sustained on the merit of Israel,” the rabbi announced.
The rabbi warned in no uncertain terms, “Anyone who touches Israel will disappear from the world. They will immediately get hit with earthquakes, floods, fires, and storms. Hamas and the Palestinians have so much, but since they don’t leave Israel in peace, in the end they will be left with nothing.”
Interestingly, in June, just as world leaders were stepping out of a meeting in Paris concerning a French-led initiative to force Israel to create a Palestinian State within its borders, rain began to fall and the Seine began to rise. Within 24 hours, Paris suffered its worst flooding in over 30 years.
After his dire predictions, the rabbi concluded with encouraging comments on the imminent arrival of the Messiah.
“Everyone, including those no longer alive, including the matriarchs and patriarchs, are waiting for the Messiah, and everyone knows it is imminent. But the exact date is only known by God,” Rabbi Ben Artzi stated. “All of the difficulties that come on Israel while they are waiting are meant to purify them, bringing the time for the revelation of the Messiah even closer.”
