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.

Prophecy of Raging Waters in the Days of Moshiach

With the frightening weather reports about Hurricane Sandy, it seems appropriate to review the Previous Rebbe's prophecy of "Raging Waters" in the time of Moshiach (the Messiah). This prophecy was issued in 1944.
The Previous (6th)
Lubavitcher Rebbe

“At any rate, prior to the Redemption, there will take place a great raging of water, which will so jolt the [people of the] world, that they will suddenly turn to G-d, blessed be He, and exalt Him. It will thus be as though the waters have raised their voices through their raging.”
                                                            The Lubavitcher Rebbe, 1944

A prophecy made by the Lubavitcher Rebbe 68 years ago says that disasters from water would occur before the complete and final Redemption.

These “raging waters,” as the prophecy states, will bring the nations to acknowledge that these are not merely acts of nature but extraordinary acts of G-d, making known His power and might.

The purpose of these disasters will be to arouse people to an awareness of the One G-d, as a preparation for the revelation of Moshiach (the Messiah), who leads the world into the Redemption.

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.
