the Promise

4 Mar

the posukim are so powerful it is almost as if no comment is needed. We feel despair, broken hearted, we don’t know where to turn, we are hunted:

 Isiah 49,6 Yea, He saith: ‘It is too light a thing that thou shouldest be My servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the offspring of Israel; I will also give thee for a light of the nations, that My salvation may be unto the end of the earth.’ {S} 49,7 Thus saith the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, his Holy One, to him who is despised of men, to him who is abhorred of nations, to a servant of rulers: kings shall see and arise, princes, and they shall prostrate themselves; because of the LORD that is faithful, even the Holy One of Israel, who hath chosen thee. {S} 49,8 Thus saith the LORD: In an acceptable time have I answered thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee; and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to raise up the land, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages; 49,9 Saying to the prisoners: ‘Go forth’; to them that are in darkness: ‘Show yourselves’; they shall feed in the ways, and in all high hills shall be their pasture; 49,10 They shall not hunger nor thirst, neither shall the heat nor sun smite them; for He that hath compassion on them will lead them, even by the springs of water will He guide them. 49,11And I will make all My mountains a way, and My highways shall be raised on high. 49,12 Behold, these shall come from far; and, lo, these from the north and from the west, and these from the land of Sinim. 49,13 Sing, O heavens, and be joyful, O earth, and break forth into singing, O mountains; for the LORD hath comforted His people, and hath compassion upon His afflicted.

The galut we are in is a prison of our own making. The prophesy has come true – we are finally here! Would God take us this far to leave us?
