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.

Media Reports Significant Increase in Natural Disasters, as the Rebbe Foretold Many Years Ago.

Flood in China, 2010

As noted previously, a 1944 prophecy, based on Psalm 93 and published in a journal of the Previous Lubavitcher Rebbe, foretold of natural disasters in the era of the Redemption. While the experts in the Associated Press story below attribute these disasters to climate change, the Lubavitcher Rebbe said that it will be clear to many that G-d has garbed himself in a "garment of grandeur," showing that it is He who runs the world. The Rebbe explains:

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.

Millions displaced by natural disasters last year
BJOERN H. AMLAND, Associated Press 

 (AP) — About 42 million people were forced to flee their homes because of natural disasters around the world in 2010, more than double the number during the previous year, experts said Monday.
One reason for the increase in the figure could be climate change, and the international community should be doing more to contain it, the experts said.
The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre said the increase from 17 million displaced people in 2009 was mainly due to the impact of "mega-disasters" such as the massive floods in China and Pakistan and the earthquakes in Chile and Haiti.
It said more than 90 percent of the disaster displacements were caused by weather-related hazards such as floods and storms that were probably impacted by global warming, but it couldn't say to what extent.
