Jewish rabbis see imminent divine entry to temple in Jerusalem in light of Zohar predictions
by Jordan Hilger, Worthy News Correspondent
(Worthy News) – A Jewish rabbi is expecting the Messiah to be revealed around Passover this year in a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem, citing a prophecy about a global pandemic from the main text of the mystical Kabbalah.
Breaking Israel News reports that in a lecture last month, Rav Yaakov Yagen identified page 172:b of the Zohar as an end-times Messianic text pointing to a soon fulfillment for Jews expecting a savior king.
“At the end of days,” Yagen paraphrased, “one virus that the people are going to have some sort of control over” is going to be followed by “another virus that is going to be similar but worse than the first virus,” both of which will be “God’s way of purifying the world so Messiah can come.”
In lieu of a current third temple, Yagen’s second prediction seemed rather strange and portentous.
“So according to the Zohar, we are at the end of the days. Not the days leading up to but we are at the end of the end of the days leading up to Messiah,” he said. “So, God willing, this Passover, we won’t have to book hotels and we will all be in Jerusalem and the Temple where we will all merit bringing the Passover offering.”
Another rabbi last month mystically interpreted the etymology of coronavirus as pointing to the need for God to be “crowned” in the temple in Jerusalem as the only cure capable of staying the plague.
And another, Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi who, according to Breaking Israel News, predicted a global pandemic five years ago, is now predicting that “miracles and wonders…seen during the holiday of Passover” will serve as a divine stamp of approval on a cure that comes out of Israel.
Paul prophesied in 2 Thessalonians 2 that the day of the Lord would not come unless it was preceded by a seemingly divine savior figure who set himself up in the temple in Jerusalem wielding miraculous power.
The New York Times has also reported that cutting edge vaccine technology now involves the injection of synthetic DNA to supposedly increase disease resistance, leading some prophecy students to wonder whether the “mark of the beast” in Revelation 13 will not be sold as a cure to a global pandemic.
