These thoughts are taken from my class taught by Rabbi Gordon on The Chumash.
The third day of creation is compassion. This shows how important severity is. The first day of creation is severity. The second day of creation is kindness and the third day of creation is compassion.
You need a triangle of severity, kindness, and compassion. Compassion is the base of the triangle and this brings out beauty of both day one and day two of creation.
Without the severity, without the detail you have nothing.
We really do not appreciate what we have until the third day of creation.
To prove this point we do not appreciate Avraham. Avraham produced Ishmael as well as Yitz’chak. From too much kindness comes as Ishmael.
We do not appreciate Yitz’chak fully. In addition to Ya’akov Yitz’chak produced Esav.
The bottom of the triangle is Ya’akov. He is combination of the triangle Avraham and Yitz’chak (Kindness and Severity) and thus Ya’akov was able to establish the children of Israel.
This is the perfection of the third part of the triangle.
It is only the third day that we appreciate the blessing of the first and second day.
This is why the good of the second day is mention on the third day.
Let’s take this a step further.
Ya’akov is Torah and Torah is Ya’akov. Ya’akov is the second Adam.
The last Adam is Yeshua. Yeshua is Torah and Torah is Yeshua.
All three Adam, Ya’akov, and Yeshua represent all Jews from the beginning of time till the end of time.
Yeshua is the Son of Man- The Moshiach. Yeshua is the combination of the three parts of the triangle. The sides kindness and severity and the base compassion.
Yeshua is the saviour of us Jews and the rest of the world.
Yeshua is all three attributes of G-d, kindness, severity and compassion.
Yeshua defeated death for us and now we have a direct pipeline to G-d.
Does this mean I have to stop being a Jew and doing mitzvahs?
Please point out to me in the Good News where Yeshua told us we do not have do what G-d directed us to do at Mount Sinai?
Yeshua told us stop being hypocrites.
Stop pretending in public you are holy when behind closed doors and you are not in the public eye the opposite is true.
Put the Torah in your heart.
Act Torah the way G-d intended us to act.
Forgiveness is the key not unforgiveness.
Yeshua came to deliver us from the dead religion we were living.
Yeshua came to expel the unclean spirits we Jews were trapped by.
Yeshua showed us how to really live a real G-dly.
Please L-rd teach me how to be teachable.
Teach me how to be a real Jew and real follower of you Yeshua.
