As reported by Adam Elivahu Berkowitz, the ascension of Donald Trump to the presidency of the United States has created confusion and turmoil in the rest of the world – BUT NOT IN ISRAEL. The very real fact of the matter is, Israel rejoices over the Trump presidency while the rest of the world trembles; indeed, some of Israel's most prominent rabbis are saying that Trump's presidency is "quite simply the will of God." For example, Rabbi Yosef Berger, who oversees the tomb of King David on Mount Zion told Breaking Israel News that Trump is –
"... connected to the Messianic process which is happening right now. When he promised to move the American Embassy to Jerusalem, he attached himself to the power of Moshiach [ie., the messiah], which gave him the boost he needed."
Berger says that the election of Trump fits perfectly into the process of Messiah.
"As the spiritual descendant of the Biblical nation of Edom, America has a very important role to play in the Messiah ..."
"This outsider, whose own party rejected him, despised by the media, won despite what the experts predicted" -
- In doing so Berger was comparing the unpopularity of Trump in the world at large and huge segments of the American electorate to the unpopularity of the Messiah: "He is despised and rejected of men ... and we esteemed him not." (Isa. 53:3)
As spokesman for the nascent Sanhedrin, Rabbi Hillel Weiss also sees God's interest in Israel as part of Trump's presidency. He says that Trump's victory is, in part, a reaction to President Barack Obama's Israel policies. He went on to say that Trump's victory -
"... was part of a [God-directed] political process, using it to punish President Obama and those who were working to harm Israel."
"By allowing Iran to establish a nuclear program which is clearly not for peaceful purposes, by standing aside and allowing the UN to make resolutions to harm Israel, Obama established himself as an enemy of Israel ... All of the academics and the media, who create their own world with evil words, they worked against Trump. They tried to create a man-made reality in which Trump could not win. In the end, it did not work. Hashem [ie., God] is moving us towards a greater Jerusalem, and anyone who goes against that, is destined to fail."
Rabbi Mendel Kessin agrees with both Berger and Hillel regarding the place of the United States and Trump vis a vis the "end of days:" Kessin says that America represents Esau, however not in a bad way, but in a good way. He explains that although Esau has traditionally been associated with oppressing, persecuting and afflicting the Jews, at the "end of days," he [Esau] will undergo a fundamental change in his character. Rather than harming Jews, Esau will turn toward serving the Jews, assisting them in doing God's will. As a result, Esau will be rehabilitated and will earn a place in the World to Come.
Kessin says that the spiritual tasks of Esau are being completed by the United States today; he sees the destiny of the United States at the End of Days as a positive one.
Kessin goes on to explains that Donald Trump has a critical role to play in purifying the US and turning this "great Esau nation" into a positive force for Israel.
"What I believe is that the one who is going to switch from [Esau persecuting the Jews] to [Esau serving the Jews] is Donald Trump ... He's going to purify Edom."
Kessin sees Trump as a -
Interestingly, all three rabbis – ie., Berger, Weiss and Kessin – derive their pronouncements from passages in the Kabbalah.
This gives the game away in so far as the pronouncements of Jewish rabbis such as these three.
The Kabbalah lies TOTALLY outside the Holy Scriptures. It is an esoteric, OCCULTIST tradition that supposedly explains the true meaning of the Hebrew Scriptures, which was kept hidden from the masses and only made known to those who were spiritually ready to receive it. Intrinsic to Kabbalah is that the Scripture can be understood only after occultist interpretative methods have been applied to it.
The Kabbalah relies on a supernatural, paranormal, mystical and magical belief system. Merriam Webster goes further and says that there is a disturbing similarity between the mysticism of the Kabbalah and voodoo.
Christians make a huge mistake in thinking that just because the purveyors of these utterings are conservative Jews, Christians should pay heed to their articulations. These latter-day Jewish prophets are not "born-again;" they have no access to the thoughts of God.
The least of all Christians have more access to the thoughts of God than do these "false prophets."
Christians who pay heed to the pronouncements of Jewish rabbis who prophesy outside the Holy Scriptures using the Kabbalah as their prophetic mechanism – and we speak here not only of Jewish rabbis in Israel, but also of such groups as the Messianic Jewsin the United States – are heading for disaster. Why? – because Trump is no messiah, he is instead the antiChrist; and America is no "Esau nation" (as Rabbi Kessin says), but is instead the Babylon of the end of days.
