Shavua Tov! The more world events become apocalyptic, the more people talk about Moshiach. From time to time, we hear voices that claim to know when Moshiach is coming. Is it possible to really know when Moshiach will arrive? Let's get some answers.
Every day here in Israel, we read about another threat of elections. The different political parties are at each other's throats and that's why I don't support any of them. They don't represent the nation of Israel or national unity. Let me tell you about the real Israel, the Israel that is about to bring Moshiach.
If you don't think that our Talmudic sages saw far into the future with their crystal-clear spiritual vision, then hear today's podcast, which shows just how the holy Raba bar Bar Chana saw what would happen in our generation in general, and with the upheaval of COVID-19 in particular.
Reading the description of what will happen directly prior to Moshiach and Geula in the teachings of the Gaon of Vilna osb"m describes exactly what's happening in today's current events, but not at all in a politically correct fashion. Today's lesson pulls no punches and is taken directly from "Even Shlema," one of the Gaon's phenomenal books:
Without eyes of emuna, a person can neither see nor understand what's happening in the world. In that respect, he or she resembles Bilaam who purported to be a big prophet but couldn't see what his donkey saw.
COVID 19, like everything else not only comes from Hashem but is Hashem's emissary to prepare the world for Moshiach and Geula, the redemption of the Jewish People and the ingathering of the exiles to our homeland of Israel. In fact, you could say that COVID 19 is the Minister of Education, teaching people what they should have learned on their own. Today's podcast looks at the lessons COVID 19 is bringing to the world. Enjoy it and have a great Shabbat!
By way of enhancing our spiritual eyesight, we can understand what's happening in the world, particularly the renewed upsurge of COVID 19.
Today's shiur is dedicated to the memory of Chaya bas Mayer v'Esther, A"H
Maybe a tangerine from the Land of Israel looks like a tangerine from California of Florida, but spiritually, but according to Kabbalah, they are as different as night and day. Today's politically incorrect podcast also explains why a Jew must strive to make aliya and live in the Land of Israel, something that more and more people are contemplating, especially since the onset of the COVID 19 pandemic and the rabid growing tidal wave of anti-Semitism in the West.
Shavua Tov! So many people nowadays feel short-tempered, or nervous, or worn out, or all three. The lurking threat of sickness and the difficult challenge of lockdown, quarantine and kids at home are eating away at their nerves. If you feel like that, don't be down on yourself, because it's natural and even mentioned in the Gemara. Hear all about it in today's encouraging podcast, which is bound to make you feel better about yourself.
The twelfth of our Thirteen Principles of Emuna requires us all to eagerly anticipate Moshiach. There's no one, religious or not, who doesn't want Moshiach, so where is he? Why has it become so unpopular to talk about Moshiach, to the extent that the rabbinical leaders of our generation are hush on the subject?
Vertigo is a term that jet pilots use to describe spatial disorientation. When a pilot approaches the sound barrier, strange things can occur, especially on a clear-day's flight over water. The pilot is liable to become disoriented, and to confuse the blue of the sea as the blue of the sky, and vice versa. Enjoy today's podcast and have a lovely Shabbat with a very healthy summer.
