Chaim starts by saying that it’s wonderful to see hostages being released and adds that the IDF has warned Hamas that if they don’t continue to be released the ground attack against them in the Gaza Strip will continue at full force.
He then asks his viewers to write about it in the comments if they’ve ever been shot at or had to seek shelter from incoming rockets, missiles or bombs or if anyone has ever tried to wipe out their country or their nation. He asks people to write about it in the comments section if it’s happened to them and then he says that if it hasn’t happened to them, they should be aware that this is the reality that Jewish people in Israel and many other countries around the world live with and have been living with for a long time.
He says that when you hear “wake up” it means that we must wake up to the reality that there are forces in this world, as well as in the spiritual world, who are working towards this goal of wiping out the Jewish people. He says that we need to pray against these spiritual forces but we also need to work against them in tangible ways in the natural world.
This includes helping Jewish people make Aliyah to Israel.
Chaim says that he was recently home with his family on a short furlough, but he still had to help them run to the bomb shelters when rockets were fired into northern Israel from the Iranian-backed Lebanese terrorist organization Hezbollah.
He says that almost everyone who isn’t on the front line is in the Synagogue, searching for the Redemption promised in Habakuk 2:14; “For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, As the waters cover the sea.”
He says that there are also spiritual forces, manifested by Iran’s clerical regime, which are moving against Israel in various other regional forces including the Houthi rebel group in Yemen and terrorist groups in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, and even Jordan.
Next he shifts the focus back to the recently released hostages, asking his viewers to write in the comments section if they’ve ever been kidnapped or if they know anyone who has. He encourages his viewers to write if they know what “Hamas” means and to go to people who are chanting “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” and ask them what they want the Jewish people currently living in that area to do if their country is destroyed.
He says there’s a lot of spiritual pressure and spiritual forces at work and he encourages his viewers to download a prayer guide he put in the description box so they’ll know how to pray for Israel at this time.
