We are all awaiting the final redemption. But are we doing so passively or actively? We must each do our part to contribute.
The Final Redemption is Near
The final redemption is nearing – it is only a matter of time before the third and final Temple will be rebuilt. As the 9th of the Hebrew month of Av approaches, the day where both Temples were destroyed, we are hoping to celebrate this year instead of mourn. The Temple Institute is an organization that has been actively preparing for the rebuilding of the Temple.
But what can we all do to bring the redemption closer? We can follow G-d’s word. We can do acts of kindness. We can better ourselves on an individual level so that the world as a whole will be positively affected.
Israel is the Place to be
The nation of Israel should come back to Israel. Israel is where the Temple will be rebuilt. Israel is G-d’s land, and it’s where His people belong.
The 9th of Av is a day of mourning because of the destruction of the Temples as well as many other calamities that have befallen the Jewish people since then. But the Jewish people hope and pray that this year, it will turn into a day of celebration with the coming of the Messiah. We hope and pray that this year, the world will recognize that G-d controls everything. And if you want front row seats, Israel is definitely the place to be.
