A noted kabbalist in Israel with an impressive history of accurate foresights into world events has come out with a prediction concerning the precarious situation in North Korea that should come as a comfort: should despotic leader Kim Jong-Un launch his missiles, they will explode inside his own country before they can harm his enemies.
Last week, during his regular lesson, Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi discussed the situation in North Korea.
“It must be remembered that every missile is really being guided by the Creator,” the rabbi said. “If North Korea decides to ‘press the button’, they should know that God will tell the missile to explode in that very same country, in that submarine, in that warplane or ship. In other words: it will explode in their faces.”
In the past, several of the rabbi’s predictions have materialized in shockingly accurate ways. In September, the rabbi predicted that the advanced Russian S-300 anti-aircraft missile system, recently installed in Iran and considered a major threat to Israel, would misfire and destroy itself. Videos of that actually happening surfaced on the internet two months later.
In February, the rabbi predicted that black magic would make a comeback, threatening world leaders. Less than two weeks later, a group of ‘witches’ in America called for nationwide meetings to cast spells against newly-inaugurated President Donald Trump.
Rabbi Ben Artzi has also accurately predicted floods, earthquakes, and tsunamis.
His latest prediction directly addresses new fears raised by North Korea’s missile test on Sunday. Considered the rogue nation’s most successful test yet, the missile, capable of carrying a nuclear payload, reached an altitude of over 1,300 miles. Missile experts say this puts US military installations in the Pacific within its range; it is also thought capable of carrying nuclear weapons. The test is considered a major step in the North Korean aspirations to produce an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of striking the US mainland.
“Anyone who uses missiles to threaten, it comes from false pride,” said Rabbi Ben Artzi. “God is the one who permits the production of missiles, ships, warplanes, war machines. But God is also the one who determines where every single missile arrives, or whether it will explode. God cares for all the animals, for every person, for the angels in heaven, so he certainly supervises what these missiles will do.”
North Korea is only one of many nuclear threats facing the West. Iran, with its nuclear program revived by the removal of economic sanctions, is modeling its ballistic missile program after North Korea’s. Rabbi Ben Artzi reassured his followers that the nuclear threat is not as great as it may appear since the horrifying aftermath of any nuclear confrontation is universally understood and feared even by the most despotic nations. The fear is so great that it is an effective deterrent, preventing future multinational conflicts.
“The entire world is terrified of nuclear missiles,” the rabbi said. “No leader or nation wants to die in a nuclear explosion. There are thousands of nuclear missiles in the world and there are nations that like to display their strength and pridefulness, to show they have nuclear strength, to create fear, to make it appear that they are strong. This is only scare tactics. Because of the nuclear threat in the world, there will not be a Third World War.”
For the rabbi, the reason for North Korean failure is clear and Biblical. “God assured us and promised that there would be no fire or brimstone or flood to destroy the world.”
In light of the growing tensions, the rabbi gave Bible-based advice on how to handle international relations.
“People resort to revenge, to hatred, to the evil inclination, and sometimes, God forbid, we are joyous when someone gets hurt,” Rabbi Ben Artzi said. “This is forbidden and it is not the way of God.”
The rabbi cited Proverbs as a source.
Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thy heart be glad when he stumbleth. Proverbs 24:17
Rabbi Ben Artzi reminded his followers that just as God directs the missiles, he also directs the actions of the leaders who appear to be opposing his will.
“God sends angels to speak from the throats of the world leaders, but the leaders think they are the ones who are speaking,” Rabbi Ben Artzi said. “It is in this manner that God runs the world, pulling on strings like puppets, confusing nations by way of their leaders. God is doing all of this so these nations will not bother Israel.”
