Jer 23, 5-8
5 “Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.
6 In his days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. And this is the name by which he will be called: ADONAI is our righteousness (צִדְקֵֽנוּ Tzedeq-nu).
7 “Therefore, behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when they shall no longer say, ‘As the LORD lives who brought up the seed of the House of Israel out of the land of Egypt,’ 8 but ‘As the LORD lives who brought up and led the offspring of the house of Israel out of the north country and out of all the countries where He had driven them.’ Then they shall dwell in their own land”.
A very important Biblical passage that leads us to consider how the event of salvation is the source and heart of the faith of Judas (the Jews) and of Israel (the rest of the World converted to the Unity GOD).
In Christianity, this salvation can be achieved through growth in faith which, at the same time, is personal and communal growth towards an ever greater Light and an ever deeper communion between the believer and the CREATOR.
The divine promise for King David is of a son (one of his descendants) who would fulfill the gift of GOD, his mission, carried out primarily with Solomon the first builder of the Temple.
This messianic promise does not end but remains eternal, it continues to lead the faith of Israel through the teachings of Jesus the Messiah (Christ), “the righteous Branch”, and then save the People of GOD: “In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live peacefully “.
Then increase the knowledge (ILM in Arabic) and the prayer of the faithful: “There will be days when we will no longer say …” And this because, through the Prophets who have arrived at the people, everyone will know GOD, be grateful to Him and will no longer submit to their earthly needs (unhappiness), but to the Will of GOD (peace).
The example of Jeremiah shows how the ancient praise that freed his people from Egyptian slavery now flows into praise for the One who freed him from the Babylonian exile.
Rather today GOD’s people walk towards the parousia, the advent of an Era of peace, where faith and the communion of His children with GOD, will finally lead to the end of worldly sufferings, leading to the fullness of love and peace. Amen
