Feb 21, 2019

וַיַּעַל מַלְאַךְ־יְהֹוָה מִן־הַגִּלְגָּל אֶל־הַבֹּכִים וַיֹּאמֶר אַעֲלֶה אֶתְכֶם מִמִּצְרַיִם וָאָבִיא אֶתְכֶם אֶל־הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּעְתִּי לַאֲבֹתֵיכֶם וָאֹמַר לֹא־אָפֵר בְּרִיתִי אִתְּכֶם לְעוֹלָם׃

An angel of Hashem came up from Gilgal to Bochim and said, “I brought you up from Egypt and I took you into the land which I had promised on oath to your fathers. And I said, ‘I will never break My covenant with you.

Judges 2:1

Did God break his Covenant with the people of Israel? First, the holy Temple in Jerusalem destroyed and left in ruins. Next, the Jewish people scattered to the four corners of the earth. Then, six million Jews killed in the Holocaust. There seems to be plenty of evidence that God rejected and abandoned the People of Israel. However, this video unequivocally demonstrates that cannot be true.
