There is a beautiful Midrash concerning the death of the patriarch Ya'kov (Jacob).
From his deathbed Ya'kov called his twelve sons to him asking them each to bring a stick. When they had come to him Ya'akov asked his sons to tie all the sticks in a bundle. Then he asked them to each try to break the bundle of sticks. Having passed the bundle around they each failed to break it. Then Ya'akov told them to loose the bundle, pass the individual sticks around, and attempt to break them individually. This time they all were successful.
This is no time to bask serenely in an attitude of apathy, but we need to stir up the fires of enthusiasm for teaching the truth to the world. I am convinced that Elohim will bless us abundantly if we do. Elohim will soon be opening the doors of opportunity as never before, I hope that each of us (and all of us together) will advance through those doors with all of the energy and confidence YHWH can give His people. This is the time to act.
YHWH is going to greatly reward those who take this challenge seriously and begin to channel time, effort and money into promoting the truth of Torah and Messiah to the blind of this world, even the ones who think they can already see, yet have only blurred vision.
Do not expect that the established religious denominations are going to be reformed and accomplish that work. They are to set in their ways to be of any use to Elohim. To the contrary the established religious leaders are the single greatest deterrent to the promotion of the truth today.
