GOD IS ONE —– ALL THE WAY !

kab

 

We know that Jews survive in exile only by the merit of Torah (Torat Kohanim, Vayikra 26:3), meaning by toiling in its study and uncovering new Torah insights. All the Torah that Jews have studied over the generations, all of it has been due to the merit of the Torah that Moses learned from the mouth of God, as it is written:

“Remember the Torah of My servant Moses”

(Malachi 3:22).

A high level of faith is when a person’s beliefs are contradicted by his logic, yet by his faith in God  his actions become directed by a Divine will higher than his own understanding !

The Sages teach us:

All the Ketuvim (writings) are Holy, and The Song of Songs is Holy of Holies and King Solomon’s song is greater than those of Moses, David and Deborah.

(Shir HaShirim Rabba 1:11).

The Children of Israel sang the Song of the Sea when they saw their enemies lying dead along the seashore, of course they sang !  King David sang when God saved him from Saul and his other enemies, as did Deborah.

In “Shir HaShirim” (The Song of Songs), King Solomon sings about the bitter exile: “The watchmen who circle the city found me. They struck me, they wounded me” (Shir HaShirim 5:7). He sings  “If you find my Beloved, what shall you tell Him? That I am sick with love” (v.8). Under such circumstances, when  singing to God, it is from the highest level of faith.

We know that Jews survive in exile only by the merit of Torah (Torat Kohanim, Vayikra 26:3), meaning by toiling in its study and uncovering new Torah insights. All the Torah that Jews have studied over the generations, all of it has been due to the merit of the Torah that Moshe learned from the mouth of God, as it is written:

“Remember the Torah of My servant Moses”

(Malachi 3:22).

The Vilna Gaon (in Emuna VeHashgacha) explains  three ways in which God manifests His Divine Providence. The first is with overt miracles like God did with the plagues in Egypt and splitting of the sea. The second type of Divine Providence is Providence through hidden miracles. In this there is, a direct relationship between nature and Torah observance is seen. When we keep the mitzvot and toil in Torah we have prosperous  times of good health and wealth. But with this providence when one sins problems follow.  A third type of Divine Providence is in Hebrew called  hester panim.  Meaning God hides His face  and it becomes more difficult to see God’s Divine Providence in the world and, or comprehend  providence.

Today many religious Jews do  not focus on discovering the Holiness of The  Holy Land. If they do go to Israel they go only  as tourists. Not coming to “explore” the Holiness of The Land so their eyes are closed. Many are so foolish these days  they only speak about the defects they find in The Land. Making excuses for not coming to The Holy Land to feeding their soul and doing what they were created to do.. It sounds like they are involved in the sin of the spies. It did not turn out well for them ?

Rabbi Yerucham Levovitz, explains mean that Moshiach will not come so long as we attribute our successes and failures to “natural” causes

. As long as we look for political, economic and sociological explanations of world events,

and excuse ourselves from Torah learning

on the grounds that we must earn a livelihood,

we will not merit an end to our exile.

(till its time)

SOMETIMES  people can no longer be purified and restored to the true path except through severe sufferings and the yoke of exile. When it is no longer possible “to build and to plant” as they have done TOO MUCH damage to their souls to break free. But their then is required  fulfilling the verse  “to root out and pull down, to destroy and overthrow”.

SOMETIMES the work of rebuilding can’t  be start before the process of destruction and uprooting has happened. SOMETIMES Divine punishment is itself the cure for  ill and is the path of repentance.

Then one can leave the state of slavery and toiling in bricks and straw and the like of this world and instead  wash their soiled hands with Holiness of the Torah and thus revealing the Holiness of their own soul.Never forget its all part of the Divine wisdom, the Divine plan And God willing we will come to witness as no other  generation the coming of the Messiah and the building of the Holy Temple quickly in our days.

TIME

Rabbi Yitzchak Charif  said:

The Torah states that the Children of Israel received a punishment of 40 years instead of 40 days. Let us do a calculation to see the ratio between 40 years and 40 days. There are 960 hours in 40 days, and there are 480 months in 40 years. This means that the Children of Israel were punished by 15 days in the desert for every hour that the spies explored the land.

A person who incites other to engage in idolatry . The Torah teaches us it is a commandment to kill such a person,
