The wisdom and beauty of divinely-inspired expression of human emotion…
The Holy Book of Psalms of King David…
All this and MORE…
We are facing tough times in Israel today. The author of The Book of Psalms, one of the greatest Kings of Israel and The Jews, knew what he was talking about when he wrote these beautiful words.
Israel has been bombarded by terrorism and bloodshed for the past four years. Now, she is facing seemingly insurmountable challenges.
The current leadership of Israel sees fit to meet these challenges by surrendering to its enemies:
…by retreating from land rightfully belonging to her
…by forcibly evicting 9-10,000Jews from their homes and turning their communities over to her neighbors
….by releasing hundreds, if not thousands of convicted terrorists from their jail cells
….by ceasing to hunt down and bring to justice those terrorist-murderers that are still roaming free
…and perhaps worst of all, by falsely invoking the term “democracy” and using it as a tool and thereby incarcerating Jews that dare to speak out against these abominable policies of the current government
Under these discouraging circumstances, it is hard for the believing, G-d-fearing Jew to keep his spirits up…all seems hopeless and lost.
There seems to be no answer, no end in sight.
It is just now, in difficult times like these that King David, in his declarations of belief and faith in The Creator, in David’s Book of Psalms, that we can find just that strength and support that we need.
He crystallizes for us the realization that, in fact, there IS no answer, here, on earth. We must look upward to find the ultimate Redemption and Truth. It is only from The Master of the Universe that our help will come. We must certainly do our part here, in this world, as Judaism teaches, but the ultimate “good ending”, where we will, indeed, live happily ever after, will only be provided from The Creator of the universe. He is the true Captain of this ship, and it is only He that will see to it that we survive the stormy seas to arrive safely in our home port.
Marty Roberts focuses on the section of Psalms known as the “Songs of Ascent”, Psalms 120-135, and especially Psalm 121 in this 25 minute program for after the Sabbath.
