Among the most exciting moments in this process of Redemption is watching the pieces come together. Anyone can do this. (You don't have to be a prophet!) Just by being an observer of the human scene,...current events, talk radio, internet news and daily experiences,--all this can be eye-opening about how the Rebbe's prophecy is being fulfilled.

Natural Disasters in the time of the Redemption Foretold in 1944 by the Rebbe

Everyone is awed by the multiplicity and impact of tremendous natural disasters that seem to be occurring without end. Earthquakes, mudslides, tidal waves, volcanic clouds such as never were before, floods, and more recently, fearsome and devastating tornadoes. As you will see below, these mighty catastrophes were foretold 67 years ago in a publication of the Previous Rebbe. Some say  it was the Rebbe's son-in-law, the Rebbe MhM, who wrote this prophecy. The prophecy clearly says that the purpose of these disasters is to wake up the nations to the might and grandeur of G-d, preparing them for the final Redemption. 

The prophetic words of the Previous Rebbe
from the newsletter HaKria V’HaKedusha (Tammuz, 5704)
Translated by Alexander Zushe Kohn

1. “G-d has reigned; He has donned grandeur; G-d has donned strength and girded Himself; even the world is firm, it shall not falter.” Psalm 93

“G-d has reigned; He has donned grandeur: Generally speaking, everyone regards nature as the ruler of the world. They totally forget that there is a G-d Who rules over nature. Only when something unnatural occurs, like a flood, earthquake, or other terrible catastrophe, do they remember Him. Only under such circumstances do they recall that there is a G-d to Whom nature belongs. [And when they remember], they say, “G-d has reigned” – He has overridden nature, and demonstrated that He is the mightier. In other words, only when G-d dons a garment of grandeur, and demonstrates his authority over nature, do people begin to recognize Him – instead of nature and its “powers” – as the sole King and Ruler of the world.

The Psalmist is speaking of the time when G-d, blessed be He, will appear clothed in grandeur, and the world will recognize and admit that G-d is King. This will take place in the days of Moshiach, prior to the Redemption.
