2021 has been a crazy year. Now, we even have a ton of catastrophic flooding all over the world. The following video is from scenes in Western Germany.
Only the one above knows why all these natural disasters are happening.
One Rabbi back in 1944 actually wrote about a time when the world would be filled with floods. His name was Rabbi Rayatz and he wrote it in a book titled “Hakriya V’hakedusha”.
…the roaring rivers will bring great changes to the world; for example: they will drown an entire nation or at least a great portion, and this natural disaster will cause a revolution in man’s perspective. They will see this as a G‑dly punishment. It’s also possible that this natural disaster will change the world political map by a chain of events which will begin with that nation that drowns.
In other words: before the Redemption, there will be a great roaring of water which will shake the world with its intensity, to the point that the world will return to elevate G‑d. That’s how we can understand the verse – that the water will elevate G‑d by means of their noise and rage.
