Day 210 Swords of Iron – “Not Fairweather”

Chaim starts out the video by informing his viewers that Holocaust Remembrance Day is coming up in Israel and the Aliyah Return Center will be holding an online event. He invites his viewers to participate in that, and then switches to talking about current events.

He says that these are dark times we’re living in, comparable to the dark day of the Holocaust. He says that every room at the Aliyah Return Center is named for a hero who stood up during those dark times, including Corrie Ten Boom, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and others, so that people staying in those rooms would be reminded of what’s needed to get through dark times.

Chaim says that it’s never been more important to stand up for righteousness and truth, with so many lies about Israel and the war we’re fighting against the terrorism of Hamas being repeated endlessly all over the world.

He quotes Jeremiah 31:3; The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.

Next he mentions Ezekial 36 which talks about the aliyah waves that are happening right now, adding that God is indeed drawing the Jewish people to their Land and also to Himself.

But, he says, human beings still need to stand for righteousness and against lies, and he rhetorically asks what will be said of us when it’s all over and we’ve passed on, whether it will be said of us that we caved in to the darkness or stood up to it.

He thanks his viewers for all they’ve done to support the ARC and Israel in general, and he concludes by counting the Omer for day 10.
