When People Try To Fulfill Scriptural Prophecies

A Rabbi’s Response

We Orthodox Jews are firm believers in following the law of G-d as opposed to attempting to fulfill prophecies. We don’t have to worry about world history and destiny  that is G-d’s business. If He gave a prophecy He will make sure it happens. Our business is only to follow the laws of the Torah. Of course, often when people try to fulfill scriptural prophecies they end up violating G-d’s laws on the way. Our opposition to Zionism is based on the laws of the Torah, which obligate Jews to be in exile until the messiah comes.
