17:10   A terror of Hashem seized all the kingdoms

Yehoshafat is one of the greatest kings of the kingdom of Yehuda. He continues to remove idol worship from the kingdom and ensures that the people engage in Torah study. In response, the nations who surround Yehuda fear the God of Israel and do not wage war on His people. Furthermore, the Philistines even send gifts to Yehoshafat. This demonstrates that the combination of the People of Israel studying the Torah in the Land of Israel brings respect from their adversaries, and brings faith and peace to the world.

    Sadly, the left in Isra'el want to enact a military draft. I am all for the IDF and donate monthly however Torah student are Torah students and religious observers should be honored as such. (To add insult to injury, there arent even that many of them compared with the combined secular and regular orthodox population that is already draftable). Bibi has stood up for what is Righteous. The press has confused many an Israeli mind over Bibi. You simply can not believe what people write these days because the world is being run by money and lies are common and Truth is rare.

  • I forgot to mention too, V 10, and the terror fell upon the people and land…. Fear of G-d is the beginning of wisdom.

  • V 7 – 9 and we read the story of the first missionaries. Isn't that amazing, and the people not only listened they heard – that if they ordered their lives on the Torah what blessing God gave – PEACE! It's more than just that though isn't it. Again we read about the high places being pulled down and destroyed. The 'high places' in peoples lives are so very different today, but like the old ones people turn away from HaShem and forsake His Laws/Ways. I come from Wales, and I've read a little about the 1904 revival there, when people's lives were changed as HaShem brought conviction to bear on people's lives, NOT condemnation! but conviction of wrong living. People's lives were changed drastically, the pubs were closed and suddenly the blessing and presence of G-d was everywhere. Imagine that again, people drawn back to faith in HaShem…….
