Rabbi Nir ben Artzi - Parshiot Vayakhel-Pekuday and Shabbat Parah
A Message to Am Yisrael in the Land and throughout the world
Thank you to the Holy One blessed be He! We thank Him all the time! We owe our very life to Him! Great miracles occurred since last Friday and Shabbat: we had a great miracle, that the Holy One gave the ability to Tzahal on Purim to destroy the head of a terrorist organization who was planning many terrorist attacks and thanks to the Holy One for removing him! In addition, more than 200 various rockets were sent to Israel and targeted Jews – and not one Jew was hurt! Let this great miracle continue always and may the Creator never abandon us! Let us all pray that this great miracle will continue regarding each and every Jew, to be protected from all the surrounding nations!
The Holy One is doing good things and great miracles – revealed ones and hidden ones – for Am Yisrael! The Holy One desires that Am Yisrael should make changes for the better! The Holy One wishes that Am Yisrael will return to Him in teshuva! The Holy One wishes that Am Yisrael recognize and thank Him for all the good that He does for us! Am Yisrael – without the Holy One’s guarding and protection – could not exist! Am Yisrael will continue to exist with exceptional strength! When Am Yisrael understands what the Holy One desires from the Jews and they will be united and together – there will be protection for Eretz Yisrael – from below, and protection from heaven – from above, and no nation can possibly harm Am Yisrael!
Heaven is working very hard to dismantle the evil, hatred, jealousy, arrogance and impurity from the world! The earth is a partner to the designs of heaven through the agency of destructive forces of nature and through the agency of hatred that permeates every nation in the world: the bad have a war with the good, the good with the bad, in order to finish each other off – in the end, the good will win! The joining of powers in heaven and earth aim to dismantle the impurity and the sitra achra (other side) from the face of the earth! The goal is to bring forth the star – the earth, to be like it was when the Holy One created it in the days of Adam and his wife before the sin – a bright and holy star! A place where there will be no more war forever! Only love, unity, peace, holiness and purity!
With the expulsion of the Jews from their homes in Yemen, the Holy One has given a warning to all Jews living in the diaspora: the Creator of the world forges forward from step to step, and when the second one is harder than the first one – this is the Creator of the world! This will come to all Jews around the world: to their homes, their work places, their cars! The Holy One does his work in a flash! Everyone will say “This is madness! How could we have not felt it coming?” Don’t take the Master of the world to task! The world is in the midst of a harsh judgment and the Creator is crying out to the Jews, “Whoever is for God, come to me!”
All the congregations and synagogues spread around the world, the Creator is angry at them and telling them to come to the holy Eretz Yisrael! The Holy One is saying “I didn’t establish the State of Israel in India, or in China, or any other place in the world – only in the holy Eretz Yisrael to which all Jews should come! It’s enough already – all the synagogues across the world, in every country – gather the Torah scrolls, fold up everything and come immediately and urgently to the holy Eretz Yisrael! You are there only for material considerations – not because of the Holy One, not because of the spirituality!” Since 1948 when the state was established – the redemption began! The exile has come to an end! All the Jews in exile must come to Eretz Yisrael! The Master of the world has waited for 2,000 years and continues to wait since 1948 until this time – 64 years! Don’t sit on the fence – this is not faith – this is the very opposite of faith! Don’t make others lose out, not Am Yisrael, not the Holy Land, and be careful not to lose out with the Creator – that you will call upon Him and He will not answer – be warned! It pains the Holy One that he speaks to you eye to eye and you don’t understand what He is doing in the world! You wait and you linger on the fence!
All Arab nations will continue to fight among themselves and to kill one another! Not only among them, but in all the nations of the world they will fight with each other and remove the evil and the thorns from each nation!
In the holy Eretz Yisrael, the Holy One wishes to see an increase purity, holiness, baseless love, kindness and the keeping of the ten commandments!
All who cheapen the lives of the Jews in holy Eretz Yisrael – the Holy One will cheapen their lives!
All the leaders of Am Yisrael, don’t put your trust in any other nation and don’t be apathetic! No nation will help! Every nation has its own interests and for Jews, the interest is in helping Am Yisrael! All leaders of the holy Eretz Yisrael must unify and come together! They should not “fall asleep,” they should be alert and their eyes wide open – everyone has his responsibility! Not for honor and glory – for one who chases after honor, no honor will remain! There should be no thought of personal gain – only to benefit the children of the Holy One! The government of Israel will not rely on any nation in the world – only on itself and on the Master of the world!
There is no time for games – it is for all leaders, spiritual and secular, to work for the protection of Am Yisrael in the best and most proper way! When Am Yisrael is united, as one group with one heart – no nation can harm it! Since all nations of the world revolve around their own interests, when no one harms them - they become apathetic. A Jew must never forget the Shoah! The Shoah must accompany and become internalized in the Jew and from this derive certain conclusions! We must safeguard Eretz Yisrael through our actions, in our thinking, and through our prayers to the Master of the world!
Precious Jews: the Master of the world exists in heaven and on earth! We don’t have sufficient knowledge, wisdom and insight to understand the greatness and the glory of the King of Kings, the Holy One blessed be He! But every Jew knows there is a Creator in the world and every Jew sees miracles and wonders each and every day!
Don’t anger the Holy One! It’s not worth it! The Holy One recalls each Jew in their merits and debits! In heaven, all is recorded!
The goal of the Holy One is to destroy the hatred and the sitra achra from the world! To save the world and the Jews. To sustain Eretz Yisrael forever! To bring redemption with mercy! To build the third Holy Temple! And to crown King Mashiach ben David over Eretz Yisrael and the entire world – in mercy!
