As a shepherd seeks out his flock when some [animals] in his flock have gotten separated, so I will seek out My flock, I will rescue them from all the places to which they were scattered on a day of cloud and gloom.Ezekiel 34:12 (The Israel BibleTM)
A rabbi who has recently gained notoriety for combatting what many are calling ‘medical tyranny’ recently published an article explaining the current “globalist plan” through the lens of the Bible.
INTERPRETING EZEKIEL’S PROPHECY
According to Rabbi Chananya Weissman, the prophecy mentioned in Ezekiel 34 is taking place right now in Israel, and the world as a whole.
“In chapter 34 of Yechezkel, Hashem castigates the shepherds of Israel for pasturing themselves, while neglecting the people” Rabbi Weissman explains. “Hashem then promises to gather His flock from their lands of exile and return them to Israel, where they will settle in fertile dwellings.”
O mortal, prophesy against the shepherds of Yisrael. Prophesy, and say to them: To the shepherds: Thus said Hashem: Ah, you shepherds of Yisrael, who have been tending yourselves! Is it not the flock that the shepherds ought to tend? You partake of the fat, you clothe yourselves with the wool, and you slaughter the fatlings; but you do not tend the flock You have not sustained the weak, healed the sick, or bandaged the injured; you have not brought back the strayed, or looked for the lost; but you have driven them with harsh rigor, and they have been scattered for want of anyone to tend them; scattered, they have become prey for every wild beast.(Ezekiel 34 2-5)
Relating those verses to current times, the rabbi blasts world governments for treating their citizens like sheep, adding that “we’re stuck with horrible shepherds.”
“If there is any government in the world that isn’t controlled by globalist gangsters, they’re working on it.”
TONGUE-LASHING EVIL SHEPHERDS
Rabbi Weissman explains how in Ezekiel, God “castigates the shepherds of Israel for pasturing themselves, while neglecting the people.”
Later on in the same chapter Ezekiel prophesizes that God will then return his flock to green pastures:
As a shepherd seeks out his flock when some [animals] in his flock have gotten separated, so I will seek out My flock, I will rescue them from all the places to which they were scattered on a day of cloud and gloom. I will take them out from the peoples and gather them from the countries, and I will bring them to their own land, and will pasture them on the mountains of Yisrael, by the watercourses and in all the settled portions of the land.(Ezekiel 34 12-13)
But in case anyone thinks that those passages are a happy ending, the rabbi points out how later in the chapter, the ‘fat sheep’ again ruin the freshwater God provides the less powerful ‘sheep’ saying:
Is it not enough for you to graze on choice grazing ground, but you must also trample with your feet what is left from your grazing? And is it not enough for you to drink clear water, but you must also muddy with your feet what is left? And must My flock graze on what your feet have trampled and drink what your feet have muddied?(Ezekiel 34:18-19)
HASHEM’S JUDGMENT IS PENDING
Following these passages, God promises to execute judgment between the fat animals and the lean sheep, that were scattered and whose water they contaminated. Following this judgment, God then rescues his flock from them and eventually establishes the Messiah to “shepherd His flock.”
“This prophecy has been partially fulfilled in our time” Rabbi Weissman explains noting how during a two-thousand-year exile, Israel was “desolate and under foreign occupation.” But since 1948, “millions of Jews have returned to their homeland, which blossomed for them as it did for no one else.”
HOLDING OFF ON THE CELEBRATIONS
But the rabbi warns that the Nation of Israel isn’t yet in the clear revealing that “Hashem’s flock is being dominated by stronger animals from among them. These gangsters seize the best for themselves, which is bad enough, but then they treat the weaker sheep with disdain, spoiling what they leave over purely out of spite.”
Criticizing the current socio-economic class structure of today’s Israel, Rabbi Weissman breaks it down explaining how there are “two classes” in Jerusalem – “those with special privileges, and those who suffer mightily just to get by. This is not because Hashem didn’t bless the land and the people, but because the fat animals seized control of everything and pushed the sheep aside. Still, the sheep managed to get along and were generally content.”
WHEN THE FAT SHEEP ARE THE MIXED MULTITUDE
According to the rabbi, the little people who Ezekiel describes as ‘sheep’ are no longer getting along nor are they content warning that the flock of Israel is now being ruled by an evil subset of the Jewish people known as the Erev Rav (Mixed Multitude), an unknown group of people who many believe has seized the positions of power in Israel today.
“The fat animals – the Erev Rav gangsters who rule the land – have embraced the globalist plan to control resources, create shortages, and destroy people’s ability to make ends meet” Rabbi Weissman rails. “They force people out of work, force businesses into bankruptcy, impose massive fines for breathing normally, raise taxes, even more, give a raise to their cronies, then sneer that it’s all for our own good. They surveil us, spy on us, rob us of our liberty, turn us into lab rats, and wage psychological warfare on us to keep us in line.”
He then blasted the ‘green passport’ system as a type of government-instituted ultimatum offering its citizens to die by choosing either a “bioweapon” or “political, economic, and social strangulation.”
LEAVING FILTHY, INSUFFICIENT LEFTOVERS
“They fatten themselves on the best pasture, then leave filthy, insufficient leftovers for the feeble sheep” he added.
“It’s right there, staring us in the face. This is the period in which we find ourselves” Rabbi Weissman warned.
LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
And although he admits to not knowing how long this period will last, Rabbi Weissman offers a silver lining explaining that eventually, God will intervene and establish the Messiah “as our righteous shepherd.”
Ending with a call to action, the rabbi notes; “this straightforward prophecy from Yechezkel is speaking directly to us, and should strengthen us in these difficult times. It’s all part of the plan, and it’s all under control. We need to pray for Hashem to judge our oppressors, free us from their grip, and restore the kingdom of David under Torah law.”
