Day 7 of the Omer
We have to continue to thank, bless, praise, glorify, exalt, extol, sanctify and proclaim the sovereignty of our King's Name for sparing us, in Eretz Yisrael, His beloved Land, from the worst of the coronavirus pandemic. It is at least ten times worse everywhere else outside our Holy Land.
MAKE NO MISTAKES!! It is NOT thanks to the bumbling, incompetent, power-mad non-government sitting in Jerusalem!!
We believers in HKB"H know that He alone makes the decision of who will live and who will die. Young people have succumbed and very old people (over 100) have survived this scourge.
For a critical period of time, HKB"H allowed us an insight and a lesson no other generation merited to have. We, who have known a world mostly free to all, could not really conceive of what it feels like to be a slave and be confined in our movements and our decisions to those only permitted to us by our masters. We, who with G-d's help are destined to experience the complete freedom of the Final Redemption will have a much greater appreciation for it, having passed through this event unique in the history of mankind.
Be assured that everything that we are experiencing now and in the days to come is flowing from the purest, deepest love as what is meant for the nations as a punishment, is intended to clean us up, dress us up, and prepare us for the greatest celebration of all time. If you think the crossing of the Reed Sea was something great, as they say, "you ain't seen nuthin' yet."
