Prophecies Fulfilled

The Haftarah for פרשת פרה is very inspiring. There are some beautiful verses describing the Messianic times.

“You will be My people and I will be your G-d.” “I will remove your heart of stone and replace it with a heart of flesh.” “You will no longer be subject to the shame of famine among the nations.”

Much of what is described in this chapter has come to fruition in our lifetimes. We are witnessing קיבוץ גלויות, the ingathering of our exiles. We see the cities that were once desolate of people, bursting with people.

We are blessed with the land producing an abundance of beautiful fruits and vegetables. This is after nearly 2000 years when the Land waited for the Jews to come home before it would sprout forth its yield.

This Haftarah is meant to remind us how fortunate we are to be living in Israel at a time when we see Hashem’s prophecies fulfilled. Shabbat Shalom
