22 Nisan 5780
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."
.נַֽחֲמ֥וּ נַֽחֲמ֖וּ עַמִּ֑י יֹאמַ֖ר אֱלֹֽהֵיכֶֽם
דַּבְּר֞וּ עַל־לֵ֚ב יְרֽוּשָׁלִַ֙ם֙ וְקִרְא֣וּ אֵלֶ֔יהָ כִּ֚י מָֽלְאָה֙ צְבָאָ֔הּ כִּ֥י נִרְצָ֖ה עֲו‍ֹנָ֑הּ כִּ֚י לָֽקְחָה֙ מִיַּ֣ד יְהֹוָ֔ה כִּפְלַ֖יִם בְּכָל־חַטֹּאתֶֽיהָ

This is a scary time to be sure. Everyone still has a lot of suffering to go through. That's the price of entry to the New World that is coming. But the Holy One, Blessed Be He, distinguishes between the sinners and the righteous. It's entirely up to you which side you are on...

Then the God-fearing men spoke to one another, and the Lord hearkened and heard it. And a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who feared the Lord and for those who valued His name highly.

And they shall be Mine, says the Lord of Hosts, for that day when I make a treasure. And I will have compassion on them as a man has compassion on his son who serves him.
And you shall return and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him who serves God and him who has not served Him.

For lo, the sun comes, glowing like a furnace, and all the audacious sinners and all the perpetrators of wickedness will be stubble. And the sun that comes shall burn them up so that it will leave them neither root nor branch, says the Lord of Hosts.

And the sun of mercy shall rise with healing in its wings for you who fear My Name. Then will you go forth and be fat as fatted calves.

And you shall crush the wicked, for they will be as ash under the soles of your feet on the day that I will prepare, says the Lord of Hosts. (Malachi 3:16-21)

Australia’s death rate is much lower than Israel’s - Baruch HaShem - maybe all those fires atoned for something

The acharit hayamim are intended to push us into a new life.

We should nor fear the death of the old world.

The acharit hayamim are intended to wean us off of urges and distractions at the personal and national level and push us out of the "womb" into a new spiritual world.

Just like the end of a child's life in the womb is traumatic, it must be so in order for the new life to begin.

The Age of Moshiach is an age devoted ENTIRELY to spiritual growth for EVERYONE.
Those who can't or won't make the necessary personal or national changes have no reason for being in the Age of Moshiach. The Age of Edom/Esau/Rome must end because of this reason.

The Sages dreamed of the arrival of the Moshiach and the Messianic age. How blessed we are to be here now.

Beautifully put. Amen!
