The Destruction of the second Temple on the 9th of Av 70 AD changed our religious structure, culture and political fortunes. Yeshua the Jewish Messiah sent by HaShem warned of this very event. Yet we didn’t pay heed to the warning and the results viewed from a physical world was devastating yet in G-d’s view this was a very much needed correction.
The Destruction of the first Temple happened on the 9th of Av 432 BC by the Babylonians. Since that time we lost our political autonomy. We still had a remnant of our culture and religious system left however this was about to end on the 9th of Av 70 AD for a period of time.
The Land G-d gave us was not ours for well over three thousand years until the greatest modern day miracle was performed by G-d on May 14th 1948 when we were given our land back.
G-d was giving us a nudge to bring us back to our mission given to us by G-d on Mount Sinai to be a light unto the nations of the world. Share with the rest of the world G-ds’ Torah. Teach the nations G-d instruction manual. Share HaShem’s soul with the nations of the world.
The Rauch HaKodesh struck Yochanan Ben Zakkai to make a deal with Roman General Vespasian during the final siege of the Jerusalem 70 AD. The leading sage of the time Zakkai asked Vespasian to spare the city of Yavne and all of its sages, This city was at the time the major center for Jewish Learning and studying Torah. Vespasian agreed.
G-d gave Yochanan Ben Zakkai the insight to save our writings and sages. Thus G-d saved the core or essence of who we are our passion for reading texts or as Rabbi Chighel says “We became one big giant book club.”
Yochanan Ben Zakkai followed G-d’s inspiration to shrink our identity down to the size of a library so we could survive. This we became leaders in the world of literature and thought.
Our heroes became Rabbi’s and scholars. These men of G-d expected all of us to read and study Torah- G-d’s world. This means Everyone! Period end of discussion.
At our essence is our passion for reading, learning, and studying Torah. G-d’s word. Now we Jews are on the verge of coming know who the real Jewish Messiah Yeshua that walked the city of Yerushalayim revealing to us the face, presence and power of HaShem.
You have seen me you have seen the Father- HaShem Eloheinu HaShem Echad.
The only way to the Father is through me Yeshua.
