Prominent rabbis from the Lithuanian ultra-Orthodox sector have offered their own curious interpretations for the upheaval that is spreading through the Middle East, stating that the events are a clear proof that a higher power is at work.
Orthodox Lithuanian sector in Bnei Brak, as blaming the instability in the region on contemptuous attitudes towards Torah study.
"Recently it appears that there is a powerful effort to destroy and agitate the world of the Torah, through various attempts to prosecute kollels and yeshiva students," Steinman said. "When you try to agitate the world of the Torah, God agitates the world." The one who does not see that God is running the world, Lefkowitz concluded, is not evil, but a fool.

Yes we have many fools in the world...
Just look in the *White House*
I agree. I don’t know when but He’s coming.....again.
I suspect the Islamic mullahs are saying the same thing, i.e. the al-Mahdi (Islam’s “messiah” figure”) will appear soon. Worldwide chaos is one of their “prophecies” that must precede al-Mahdi’s return. Ahmadinejad has even said it is his duty to bring about that chaos to hasten the al-Mahdi’s return. I’d say it appears that Ahmadinejad is making good on his word.
It’s empirically plain that Jews who don’t take their ancestral religion seriously (nor become serious Christians) soon morph into screaming leftists, agitating against their own good as a people. In both cases the bible is forgotten along with its historic lessons.
Well, it will happen sometime, how interesting to be alive when it does occur.
The Messiah is coming for sure... but for a second and final time. The Rabbis will very surprised to see it is Yeshua and they will mourn for Him as a son. The Bible says the Jews were blinded in part but the entire nation will finally turn to Him. Amad also awaits his version of the Messiah... but his will turn out to be the ‘son of perdition’ and he won’t like it when the real one takes power. The final struggle is detailed in Revelation and it isn’t pretty.
I think what is happening is that all of mankind, no matter what religion, creed or culture can see the *Rule of and Rein* of Man has come to a halt......
*Peace has been taken away from the earth*
Yes the Messiah, the Saviour, the name above all other’s is coming...I say: *It can’t be soon enough*!
do you think that is because God has given them over to their blindness? I have noted the same thing many times but never followed the thought through.
I have a different idea about the “pop” in the mob mentality and sudden union demands. Look at the recent connections of Unions world wide...Andy Sterns plan all along. Look to G. Soro’s funded organizing.
There is nothing God is doing to cause this. It is man-made chaos. Pure evil.
“Take a man away from the mob and suddenly he becomes sane.”
This is as good a time to be the end times as any time from past to present. For certain, Islam is a curse on the world, proof that God isn’t pleased with what He sees.
As individuals, I’d say yes God permits willfully blind people to stay so, in most cases (sometimes He still intervenes and allows sight to those likely to repent).
As a Christian of traditional teaching, I freely acknowledge evil as being more than simply man made. There are disobedient angels at war with God and they are active in the world too to egg on sin and bring death.
11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devils schemes.
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Ephesians 6:10 - 12
"Nation shall rise against nation and people against people..."
We are watching the prophetic Scriptures coming to pass and everything is happening suddenly, or "quickly", as Jesus put it in His Revelation.
The King is coming soon!
As do I.
“I agree. I dont know when but Hes coming.....again.”
I am ready.
The time to choose sides is coming to an end. There will be no gray area.
oh! what a GREAT line.... I’m borrowing!! :)
To believe that “mass action” alone reflects “the will of G-d” or even G-d at work, denies just how greatly the human will and ego can, on its own, deny G-d, even collectively, and act on its own, on a large scale. If we do not believe that is true then we would have to hold G-d responsible for the Holocaust and similar mass genocides.
To be believe that “mass action” in the Middle East, as a region, changes the significance, and automatically invokes a greater likelihood of “the hand of G-d” in what is going on, should also not be toyed with. Those that do are “playing in G-d’s playground”.
We are never THAT smart or THAT connected to FULLY know the heart of G-d or the heart of G-d’s work at any time.
We are ALWAYS better off NOT speculating on the full meaning, in G-d, of such things.
Leave it to G-d to make that fullness actually and unmistakably known in human experience, in G-d’s own good time; not simply human predictions; lest G-d measure our ignorant arrogance against us.
