This article appeared in the Daily SouthTown yesterday. I found it fascinating because it perfectly captured the points of what we teach here at 113 Restoration, namely, the power and responsibility of the father to care for his family, and those he is directly responsible for, as well as how YHVH is the judge of widows and orphans. Beyond this, He commands us not to put a stumbling block in front of the blind.
He executes justice for the orphan and the widow
Because I delivered the poor who cried for help, And the orphan who had no helper.
You shall not curse a deaf man, nor place a stumbling block before the blind, but you shall revere your God; I am the Lord.
Kelly and I are back in the Land, aka
Israel, for the next three glorious weeks. We are blessed to have
the opportunity to lead the Ani Yosef Sukkot trip and to attend a
couple small conferences concerning the restoration of Israel.
After a late start this morning due to
little sleep while traveling we headed out for a several hour hike
out of the moshav and through a part of the Hakedoshim Forest. The
‘Forest of the Holy Ones.’
We walked and talked. Stopped a couple
places to pray and simply drink in the beauty.
As we talked, she mentioned, “I look
forward to the day when everything is green again.”
I said, “It is green! Everywhere.”
“I’m not color-blind,” she
“I understand what you are saying,
dear, but I already see it as
green.” Then it hit me. I pondered and as we kept walking, I said,
“I think often we are prophecy-blind like being color-blind. We
don’t see things by
faith as if they already are!”
