Rav Fish: The Geula is at the Doorstep - Are you Ready? Part 2 of 7
From Rav Fish's special newsletter
Continued from Part 1
In Midrash (Yalkut Yeshaya 499):
Rabbi Yitzhak said: The year that King Mashiah will be revealed, all the kings of the nations will provoke each other. The king of Paras (Iran) will provoke an Arab king (apparently, Saudi Arabia) and the Arab king will go to Edom (America supporting Saudi Arabia), to take advice from them.
Then, the King of Paras will go ahead and destroy the whole world (nuclear bombs). And all the nations of the world will tremble and be panicky and will fall on their faces. And pains like birth pangs will take hold of them.
And Israel will tremble and be panicky and will say "Where will we come and go? Where will we come and go? (To where can we run away from a nuclear bomb?)"
And He will say to them: "My children, do not be afraid! Whatever I made, I only made for your benefit! Why are you afraid?
Do not be afraid! The days of your redemption has arrived!"
And similarly we see today great tension between Saudi Arabia, Iran, and America. And I heard that President Obama said that he has no problem attacking Iran.
And even though they are trying to make an agreement with Iran, this will not work for them, and a great war will develop from this. As is brought down in the book "Yalkut Oheiv Yisrael" in the name of the holy rabbi of Apta ZY"A that:
In the End of Days, the nations of the world will want to fight against each other, but they will think and contemplate that by doing so, it would benefit Israel (meaning, if they will destroy Iran). So, they will all gather together to iron out differences between them so they will not need to fight (i.e., the Iran deal). However, this will not help them, and they will end up fighting each other until they reach their end.And he concluded that it is permissible to say this matter in his name as if he is saying it in the name of a prophet.
Similarly, it is understood in the book "Or Yakar" p. 122 by the Ramak 500 years ago that he wrote amazing things:
And all the nations will gather and make a plan of peace (deal with Iran) between them and they will turn to Israel to destroy because they established for themselves a government (the State of Israel), and a time of trouble will come to Jacob, but it will not come to a crisis, but rather, from it, he will be saved.
