Now his prophecies about return of Messiah are being studied…



JERUSALEM – Judah Ben Samuel was a legendary and prolific German rabbi of the 12th century who made some astonishing and specific predictions about the future of Jerusalem and Israel that came true. Judah Ben Samuel, also known as Judah he-Hasid (Judah the Pious), lived and worked from the end of the 12th century until the beginning of the 13th century in Regensburg, authoring a number of books in the German language.

Ben Samuel was often called “Light of Israel.” Even bishops came to him for advice. If anyone asked him where his wisdom came from he would answer, “The prophet Elijah, who will precede the Messiah, appeared to me and revealed many things to me and emphasized that the precondition for answered prayer is that it is fueled by enthusiasm and joy for the greatness and holiness of God.”

But to recap the astonishing predictions: In AD 1217 this scholarly and pious rabbi prophesied that the Ottoman Turks would rule over the holy city of Jerusalem for eight Jubilees. Now, keep in mind, he made this prediction 300 years before the Ottoman Turks seized control of Jerusalem in 1517. If indeed 1217 and 1517 were jubilee years as Judah Ben Samuel believed, then his prophecy was exactly right, because exactly 400 years after the Turks took control of Jerusalem they were driven out of the city and the holy land in 1917 by the Allied forces under the command of General George Allenby – on Hanukkah, by the way.

But it gets more interesting still.

The rabbi also prophesied that during the ninth Jubilee Jerusalem would be a “no-man’s land.” This is exactly what happened from 1917 to 1967, due to the fact that the Holy Land was placed under British Mandate in 1917 by the League of Nations and literally “belonged” to no nation.

Even after Israel’s war of independence in 1948-49, Jerusalem was still divided by a strip of land running right through the heart of the city, with Jordan controlling the eastern part of the city and Israel controlling the western part of the city. That strip of land was considered and even called “no-man’s land” by both the Israelis and the Jordanians.

It was not until the Six Day War in 1967 when the entire West Bank of the Holy Land was conquered by the Israeli army that the whole city of Jerusalem passed back into the possession of Israel. So once again the prophecy made by the rabbi 750 years previously was fulfilled to the letter.

It certainly would be significant if both 1917 and 1967 were Jubilee years, considering the significance of what happened in Jerusalem on those years. But it gets even more interesting, because Judah Ben Samuel also prophesied that during the 10th Jubilee Jerusalem would be under the control of the Jews and the Messianic “end times” would begin. If he’s right, the 10th Jubilee began in 1967 and will be concluded in 2017.

God however clearly states in scripture where we read here in: (KJV)
Mat_24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

Mar_13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

Note how Jesus states clearly the words ‘day’ and ‘hour’…

If it may be so, its so; ….. I am ready ….. Are you?

  One Response to “12th-century Rabbi predicted ISRAEL’S future”


    A issue I found is to my understanding the biblical jubilee year is actually 49 years long. so this may just be another false assumptions. The fact is God sends the holy spirit, does not send prophets, murmurs to people, gives visitations to religious leaders, he sends the Holy sprit to the believers who receive their teaching directly from the holy spirit…

    I am further surprised that Israel Today even published something that could not be documented.

    Why would God send a message to an unbeliever which carries prophecy for Israel?

    The biblical Israel of the new testament is the body of believers, the invisible church of God, those saved by Jesus Christ.

    It also appears that the rabbi had visitations from Elijah and further the translation work from pastor riley is highly questionable; since there are no official scripts of the documentation that I could find any mentioned records.

    I trust that the bible is God’s word for man, and that is all we should trust on and pray for God to have mercy on us and lead us to salvation in Christ Jesus. Amen
