What to expect this lesson?
I am glad you asked….
In chapters 26 and 27 of Devarim, HaShem, blessed be He, is clearly directing His instructions to the Nation of Israel. In fact, to drive this point home, the opening verses of the chapters state
Devarim ch 26 verse 1 When you enter the land that your God יהוה is giving you as a heritage, and you possess it and settle in it,
Devarim ch 27 verse 1 Moses and the elders of Israel charged the people, saying: Observe all the Instruction that I enjoin upon you this day.
In contrast, here Merciful HaShem states beautifully and sweetly… Devarim chapter 28 verse 1: “Now, if you obey your God, Yahweh, to observe faithfully all the divine commandments which I enjoin upon you this day, your God, Yahweh, will set you high above all the nations of the earth.”
Now, I have an idea that many or some individuals seem to think that G-d’s love, mercy, and blessings are strictly for one group or certain people. However, it’s important to recognize that G-d’s love extends to all. It is not limited to a particular group or type of person. So, let us put aside our egos and acknowledge that G-d is the G-d of all.
If you don’t believe me, I am ready to accept the challenge, my dear friends.
I could explain or try to reason with my own words, but the Book of the Holy Prophet Isaiah speaks most profoundly. In particular, I greatly admire the chapter……..
