25 Menachem Av 5773
Yes, it's that time again. With the power of the Erev Rav regime behind the Sodomites, the holy people of the holy city cannot put a stop to this obscenity. And then, I wonder how this yearly desecration of all that is holy weighs up in Hashem's accounting against the weekly desecration of the Holy Shabbat or the daily desecration by the "prostitute parade" of naked women walking the public streets.
And it's ALL about "pride." It's about EGO over Hashem, God forbid! "I want what I want and I do not care who it hurts or what God thinks about it."
WAKE UP, sleeping neshamot!! Hashem is suffering each and every hour because of OUR sins!!
Rosh Chodesh Elul is right around the corner. Make a date with destiny right now and determine that by Rosh Hashanah, you will have done complete teshuva and turned your life around!!!
Start by ridding yourself of the most evil of character traits - the sin of "pride."
"And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of man shall be humbled, and the Lord alone shall be exalted on that day." (Yeshayahu 2.17)
Either we will do it or Hashem will do it for us.
