Biblical prophecy just took place before our eyes, proving that the redemption is almost here. Take a look at this UNBELIEVABLE video!
Redemption is Almost Here!
If you do not know the story in the Talmud about foxes at the Temple Mount, then seeing foxes walking near the Kotel, or Western Wall, might not mean anything to you. But really it means more than you can imagine.
There is a story in the Talmud that goes as follows: Rabban Gamliel, Rabbi Elazar ben Azaria, Rabbi Joshua and Rabbi Akiva went up to Jerusalem. When they reached the Temple Mount, they saw a fox emerging from the place of the Holy of Holies. The others started weeping but Rabbi Akiva laughed. Rabbi Akiva asked the rabbis why they cried, and they explained that to see a wild animal in such a holy place, a place which was forbidden to unfit men, was distressing. Rabbi Akiva explained that this was precisely the reason he laughed. He explained that the fact that the prophecy of Uriah related by the Prophet Micah had come to be was proof that the prophecy of Zechariah would also come to be, and the redemption would come as well.
The Perspective of a Jew
The perspective that Rabbi Akiva had is the perspective that every Jew should have. We should believe and be hopeful that the redemption is coming, just like the other prophecies came true. God has not abandoned us, and He never will. It is true – right now, people are suffering throughout the world. Jews are still being attacked, whether with words or physically. Things are not perfect.
But God gave us a reminder that the redemption is coming. Foxes. Now you can understand the significance of foxes in such a holy place. It happened thousands of years ago when the Temple was destroyed. And it has happened again now. Let us all be like Rabbi Akiva and believe that the redemption is just around the corner.
