Chaim begins by saying how wonderful it is to see Israeli unity amidst this crisis. He adds that there are countries standing in unity with Israel and he cites the parable of the sheep and goat nations that Yeshua gave us in Matthew 25:31-46;
“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
“Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
“Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’
“Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
Chaim discusses Iran’s apparent decision to sit out this war and the attempted terrorist attack at a checkpoint in southern Jerusalem. He also mentions how Israel is providing care for civilians in Gaza, even as Hamas cynically uses them as human shields. He also mentions that the largest pro-Israel rally in US history was held on the Mall in Washington DC on Tuesday and says it all points to a battle over the throne of David in Jerusalem that won’t end until the rightful King returns to Jerusalem and claims it.
Chaim recites one of his favorite poems which speaks to this moment in history and then quotes Psalms 89:22-24; The enemy shall not outwit him, Nor the son of wickedness afflict him. I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague those who hate him. “But My faithfulness and My mercy shall be with him, and in My name his horn shall be exalted.
Next he sings a song about the hostages remaining in Gaza, promising that he and his comrades will keep looking until they’re found and brought home.
He concludes by once again thanking the supporters of the Aliyah Return Center for helping to take care of evacuated families and equippingng soldiers for the task at hand.
