Original Sin and Redemption

Rabbi Yaghobian shares this amaizing lecture which connect the sin of Adam and Eve to the final redemption. Rabbi Boruch Ber Leibowitz, one of the great rabbis of pre-war Europe, was quoted as saying: “When I will stand before the heavenly court, and they will ask me, ‘What merit have you brought with you?’ What shall I answer? Torah? Is my Torah knowledge worth enough to be mentioned? Fear of Heaven? Are my deeds worthy of that description? There is only one thing I could possibly claim — that I loved every Jew with all my heart. Whenever I walk in the street and I see a Jew, one thought comes to me: A blessing on his head!'”

The Sages teach that the Temple and all that it represents can be rebuilt at any moment. The Midrash says that the Third Temple has already been constructed in heaven, and merely awaits our preparations here on earth. In every generation, an individual exists with the capacity to be Moshiach. The Jewish people have returned to the Land of Israel and made it bloom once again. God is ready when we are. For as King David writes in Psalms 95:7: “(Redemption will come) today — if you hearken to His voice.”
