Rabbi Nir ben Artzi - Parshat Devarim Shabbat Chazone
A Message to Am Yisrael in the Land and throughout the world
The King of Kings, the Holy One blessed be He, created this world so that there should be unity, love and peace – without these there can be no sustaining of the world! The Holy One had immeasurable joy when, finally, there was unity in the Israeli government, and He anticipated unity among the religious parties as well. Unity in the government – it radiates to all Jews in Eretz Yisrael!
Whoever loves the Holy One, should work for unity, love and peace among Am Yisrael. Whoever wants to argue with the Holy One and make Him angry – should incite dissension. Members of Knesset and the ministers are creating much disturbance and noise and think better people can come along – it will be ‘the same woman in a different guise.’ The government came apart – a very stupid thing! They had in their hands the opportunity to unify and consolidate Am Yisrael, they had the ability to bring together the secular and the religious. Because of a desire for honor – now all of Am Yisrael is tense and pressured. Let the members of the Israeli government stop their arguments! Such a pity that they dissolve so quickly what was so hard to build – it’s easy to destroy, and hard to build!
The government of Israel must deal with the problems of violence, stabbing with knives and alcoholism!
All Jews who travel to the diaspora – they have no protection, and are taking a risk! All Jews living in diaspora countries, need to come to Eretz Yisrael immediately! Stop angering the Holy One! In 1948 the State of Israel was established and all need to come to the Land – and now! Don’t wait until the economy in the diaspora will improve, all the while that Jews remain outside of Eretz Yisrael – the world economy will never get better!
It is unthinkable that members of our ‘Mossad” would be lackadaisical and think that nothing will happen in Europe.
What is happening is Syria is a divine plan! Let them continue to destroy one another so that they see and fear! Everyone will see what the goyim are capable of doing. There are nations that are quietly helping the Syrians, even considering the problematic nature of the situation in Syria, they are afraid of the chemical weapons which some unknown nation gave to them. They try every which way to quiet the news of chemical weapons, but they’ve missed the train.
The Egyptian government is scared, scared to death, that the situation in Egypt will be like that in Syria, it will be – and worse!
In Gaza the gangs are fighting against the government. They are operating on low grade arsenals, because they know they can always get major weapons from Syria.
Tzahal, continue to be on alert. Don’t be complacent and don’t believe the leadership of the goyim.
Pity that we don’t believe in the shekel – in the currency of Israel. We must strengthen the shekel and not the dollar. The markets and the sellers need to strengthen the shekel and not the dollar. The economy of Israel will always be balanced because we have one Father – Father in heaven!
We must prevent protests and divisiveness – this is not part of the Jewish culture! This is a huge embarrassment and downgrading for the Jews!
All the heads of cities in Israel, should join together, unify and work together, in order to find solutions for their citizens – with the approval of the government, of course. This will solve problems of livelihood, peaceful co-existence and education.
Those who want to burn themselves – this is the way of the goyim! It’s forbidden for a Jew to endanger himself, Jewish law forbids this! Don’t cheapen the heritage of the Torah of Israel – what is written is absolute truth!
In order to be a safe and protected people we must keep and uphold the ten commandments and nothing bad will happen. Livelihood is in the hands of the Holy One, helped by the desire of the person to work. One should not say, “this work is not appropriate for me,” – all work honors its doer, especially when there are young children in the family. All wealthy Jews, if they want to continue being wealthy, should give ma’aser (tithe) to build synagogues, study halls and mikvahs. Even though the situation is hard – one must give! These are trials and tests, and once we pass the test – there is great success!
The Creator of the world is building the State of Israel, He is the craftsman of the entire world! The Master of the world builds every house, every city, every locale and every street, he is charting the shape of Eretz Yisrael and Am Yisrael with a very specific plan so that in the end Eretz Yisrael will look from above – from the heavens as a stunning vision!
All destructive forces of nature will continue. The world will not be calm, forces of nature will not calm down – until the last Jew comes to Eretz Yisrael! Am Yisrael needs to be unified, joined together and keeping the ten commandments!
Each day that passes, the light of Mashiach grows stronger and with this occurs the revelation of King Mashiach! We must increase kindness and benevolence in Am Yisrael, increase with Torah studies and prayer – Mashiach is on his way to being revealed!
