This morning, there were rockets from Gaza in Kfar Saba.
Are we supposed to believe this is another ‘mistake’? That Ahmed tripped over that darned carpet again, and fell against the ‘launch’ button?
Rav Berland was talking about rockets hitting every part of the country 4 months ago, and telling us the decree is serious and imminent. Which other Rav was trying to pull 50,000 Jews together in prayer at that point in time? Or pointing out that all the politicians in the world, all the ‘iron dome’ systems in the world simply aren’t going to help us, this time around?
We are down to the wire.
The threat is real, and growing stronger by the day.
Today, there were rockets in Kfar Saba.
And the Rav has told us clearly: Only prayer, only tehillim, can stop these rockets.
There is going to be another prayer gathering on Monday, April 8th, in Hevron. It’s hugely important that as many of us as possible get there, and throw our ‘prayer power’ behind the Rav’s effort to sweeten this decree.
Because the next rocket from Gaza could be coming through our roof, God forbid.
What if we don’t live in Israel?
Do we still have to worry, do we still have to care about all this stuff?
It’s a post for another time, but it comes back to that whole idea that we can’t run away from God, and His plan for us. Jews can certainly dodge rockets from Gaza by staying in chul.
But that doesn’t mean they’ll get the ‘easy life’ – because there is no such thing.
We can’t run away from God, even if we don’t live in Israel.
We won’t get a rocket through the roof (probably….I was talking to someone yesterday who is convinced civil war is around the corner in the US and the UK…), but we’ll get some other wake-up call.
There’s so much heartache and suffering going on behind closed doors all over the world.
So many of us are trying to stay in the comfort zone, even though it’s literally killing us, and preventing us from being the people, the Jews, God designed us to be.
And God doesn’t want us to do that anymore, as it’s holding up geula.
