Scary World War 3/Geula Prediction

We've heard it before, but predictions such as these always get me scared. When the fear is used in the Teshuva process, it's not such a bad thing.

TorahNews has another take on the famous Yalkut Shimoni (remez 499) that begins with אמר רבי יצחק (it's even starred and underlined in HebrewBooks.org!!)

Here's the poster in Hebrew that is even more extensive if you speak Hebrew.

For those who know what the Lubavitcher Rebbe said about this midrash in 1991, these "scary predictions" are humorous at best.

See the whole thing at The Year Moshiach Is Revealed

In addition to saying that the events of 1991 (the Gulf War) fulfilled the words of the Yalkut Shimoni, the Rebbe showed hints in the Torah that the year 5751 was indeed the year of Moshiach's revelation. Not only that Moshiach would be revealed, but that indeed these events “testify that this is ‘the year in which King Moshiach is revealed’”, even though “there is a difficulty to internalize this recognition and feeling that we are standing on the edge of the days of Moshiach”.

Actually, unless haShem reveals him, this too is laughable. In all reality, haShem will keep him concealed in order that we don't screw it up, nor make him into something he is not.

the difference between yakov nathan's and shilo's statements is that yakov nathan is only paraphrasing a huge tzadik,but shilo i believe is coming up with his own logic. and our own logic can always be laughable...or more than that...
