The Sixties Radical- Azriel


Everything we are taught and live by points to the coming back of Yeshua. Taking Yeshua out of what we Jews believe is like cutting us off at the knees. Without Yeshua and the messianic era we would be lost and left without redemption.

From the beginning at the Garden with Adam and Eve the entire future of us Jews and the rest of the world points to coming back of Yeshua to establish the kingdom of G-d and return to the Garden of Eden.

Despite Abraham’s pleas, the wickedness of Sodom and its neighbors was so great that it could not be overlooked. The angels arrived at Lot’s house in order to rescue him from the impending destruction.

[The angels said,] “ . . . because we are about to destroy this place, for the outcry before G d has increased, and G‑d has sent us to destroy it.” Genesis 19:13

The wickedness of Sodom and its neighbors was a misguided overreaction to Noah’s Flood. The generation of the Flood had been wiped out chiefly because they practiced and condoned robbery – the forceful and unjust taking of one person’s property by another. The residents of Sodom, aware of this, declared private property rights absolute, outlawing charity and hospitality as unjust uses of another person’s possessions.

In their zeal, the people of Sodom did not realize that this opposite extreme was just as destructive as condoning robbery. So, since the world cannot fulfill its purpose of being G‑d’s true home if we human beings cannot get along with each other, Sodom and its neighbors had to be eliminated, just like the generation of the Flood. Nonetheless, since their intentions, however warped, stemmed from a desire to do the right thing, we are told that these cities will be restored in the Messianic Era.1 Ezekiel 16:53.

We can learn from this that our challenge is to find proper balance rather than live a life of extremes.2 Likutei Sichot, vol. 35, p. 74.”
