According to Rabbi Glazerson we really blew it during Purim. Had we done teshuva, observed the laws, stopped bickering and showed more loving-kindness towards our fellow Jew, it is possible Moshiach would have been introduced. We may have another chance soon...Amazing video.
Just wanted to share with fellow bloggers, if you think it is appropriate.Watch the Rav Glazerson video and take it to heart:
It is extremely appropriate, and a well written message. I have received messages from readers saying “More predictions that didn’t happen.” I have been saying for years that Judaism is not a spectator sport. We are the team on the field and whether we win or lose is up to us. It is so discouraging when we see Jews say: “we’ll see,” as opposed to “Do First, Understand Later.”
The Jews accepted the Torah with the statement “na’aseh v'nishmah” – “we will do, and we will hear.” If we want something to happen such as the worldwide redemption, world peace, Moshiach, health, prosperity, no conflict, no war, no terrorism, no Yetzer Harah, etc, etc, etc, we have to do Hashem’s will, His instructions and it is all ours. We are least of all in “a wait and see” time in history. Before you complain about what is happening or what is not happening, look in the mirror and ask: Did I do first, and then try to understand later?”
For four years I have said: what we get is measure for measure based on what we give. If we follow Hashem, we get goodness in return. If we wait for everyone else to follow Hashem, you know the answer to that one. I have said it many, many times: All Jews and righteous non-Jews will be saved, but how difficult a trip to salvation is completely up to the individual.
Get to work!!!! Pesach is coming and is a very, very good opportunity to bring the extremely happy ending – it is up to us.
There is another video from Rav Glazerson that repeats another message that I have been saying for years: We are not waiting for Moshiach, he is waiting for us.
