I have a surefire way to predict disasters, and convince people that you are a kabbalist with mystical powers of prediction.
But before this, I only will say that this Rav is the *only one* (as far as I know) who foresaw the tsunami exactly in time. In front of the same audience, one day before the tsunami, the Rav said that very soon something very hard will happen in India or in California! One day later we already saw the tsunami in the news....
Shotgunning might include a series of vague statements such as:
- "I see a heart problem with a father-figure in your family, a father, a grandfather, an uncle, a cousin... I'm definitively seeing chest pain here for a father-figure in your family."
- "I see a woman that isn't a blood relative. Someone around when you were growing up, an aunt, a friend of your mother, a stepmother with blackness in the chest, lung cancer, heart disease, breast cancer..."
- "I sense an older male figure in your life, who wants you to know whilst you may have had disagreements in your life, he still loved you.
Hitnatkut (disengagment)The Rav said that the Hitnatkut will be carried out! Probably these word astonished the synagogue crowd that claimed it doesn't fit with other Gedolim words and promises. In response he said that this is only his opinion, not a prophecy (Daniel points that in his opinion the Rav said this just in order to avoid arguing with them)
According to my source, the rabbi said that the next stage (Jerusalem) will take place very fast (he mentioned Rice's statements urging Israel for more expulsions). He didn't talk about the rest of the settlements in Judea and Samaria, only about Jerusalem. He mentioned that the news talked about the Arabs preparing all their rockets in Ramalla to target Jerusalem. He described a situation that will happen very soon where the American army will be here (in Israel), and also from all of Europe. He also said that the Yishmaelim will also be here. A little vague here - my source didn't understand whether they all come for a war or something else (such as expelling Jews from their homes; "peacekeeping"; or anything else) - all he understood is that they will be present here soon one way or another.The rabbi said that the situation in Jerusalem will be according to him "5000 times" worse than what happened in Gush Katif, and the people who will remain there after all the troubles will be called holy (quoting Yesha'ayahu chapter 4 verse 3): "והיה הנשאר בציון, והנותר בירושלים, קדוש ייאמר לו".He said this is the big test in faith. No matter in Jerusalem or not - many will fail the test. He stressed that we all need to strengthen our faith very much.
From one of the things that the Rav said, my source understood that he'd prefer the year 5766 won't come, but rather that 5767 will come instead.He did say that the last Tisha BAv was the last Tisha BAv that we needed to fast, so the geula is close.
Commenting on Katrina and New Orleans situation, he said that what we saw in Katrina was the first stage of the future flooding. Hashem does not want to bring the "big" things at once, he desires to bring these פורענויות (punishments?) gradually, so just so that we understand: Katrina was only the VERY FIRST stage, the first taste if you want, from what Hashem is preparing for the world. According to what the Rabbi said, these events will all happen within the year.
Without mentioning anything about the recent statements about natural disasters and making aliyah to Israel, the Rav said that all the things of Rav Kaduri are correct: that Moshiach is already with us, that he has a magen David of a certain measure (this apparently was mentioned by Rav Kaduri -- see this link ). He reminded us that the Ben Ish Chai had promised Rav Kaduri that he would merit to see Melech Hamoshiach, and the fact that today Rav Kaduri is the last person alive who saw the Ben Ish Chai, and he commented something like "and he is already very old" (to say that Moshiach is very close).
This gog that we're talking about, according to the Rav, is the third and last Gog. He said that this Gog had already conquered Iraq. When he said this he was asked by the audience if he means that George Bush is this Gog, and he said clearly: Yes, George Bush is Gog. He said that Gog will conquer Paras (Iran), and my source doesn't remember but he thinks that there were more places mentioned (he thinks Pakistan was mentioned, but not sure at all).
I asked him if 5769 is the last era for Moshiach's arrival and he said that he's almost positive this is the last one. Let's hope we don't have to wait till then...
Iran will be totally erased along with other Muslim countries such as Indonesia, Pakistan, India, etc. The way it will be erased is thru a mega Tsunami. Afterwards, NY will fall (he didn't say how) and Yerushalayim will be raised and be the capital of the world.He said that from all corners of the world, Jews are flocking to Eretz Israel and the wave of Aliya will continue strongly. Very few Jews will choose to remain in their foreign countries.Israel Government will continue giving away Holy land and this is becuz they have permission from America. America is no friend to Israel but rather, taking advantage of Israel. The more land Israel gives, the richer America becomes.In about 3 months, the Israel Government will tumble, fall, and be no more.
A thoughtful person notified me that there is a rumor that “something big” will happen between Rosh Hashana and Sukkot.
Research revealed that Rabbi Shimon Dahan, known as “the Rabbi who foresaw the Tsunami”, is saying that he has been informed from Above that there will be an atomic blast during that span of time. Something which will unify the hearts of Israel and cause Mashiach to come.
Quite a juicy statement!
And my sources tell me it might even be bigger than that.
