 1:21   For liberators shall march up on Mount Tzion

Rabbi David Stavsky (1930-2004)

Who are the liberators who will march upon Mount Zion and judge the enemies of the Jewish people? Rabbi David Stavsky (1929-2004) quotes several commentators including Radak, Malbim and Mezudat David, who agree that these saviors are the Mashiach and his ministers. He writes that especially in our own times, following the Holocaust and the establishment of the State of Israel, “We must analyze and understand every nuance of this verse, for I believe we are living in a time when Ovadya’s prophecy is at last being realized… These seem to be the days of a Messianic era. If not, how else can we explain the awakening from a coma of millions of Soviet Jews, a resuscitation, a life after spiritual death, a return to a Judaism that they knew of, but could not practice. We feel in the depths of our souls, in the marrow of our bones, that we are living in Messianic times.”

  • With all the Scriptures that remind us of Elohim’s plan to rule over all the earth and to establish HIS Kingdom in Y’rushalyem, I’m left to wonder why so many have been deluded into thinking they’re going to be “flying away to heaven”. It’s time to lay that “Greek concept” of heaven to rest and learn what the Scriptures teach us about our future in HIS Kingdom.
