He Owns the World

"... the land of the Canaanites" (Deut. 11:30)

Its the Land of the Canaanites, Hashem tells us, the place where Schem (Nablus) stands today, where the mountains of Ebal and Gerizim stand.

He tells us: "For you are crossing the Jordan, to come to possess the land which the Lord, your God, is giving you, and you shall possess it and dwell in it." (Deut 11:31)

And He says:"You shall utterly destroy from all the places where the nations, that you shall possess, worshiped their gods, upon the lofty mountains and upon the hills, and under every lush tree. And you shall tear down their altars, smash their monuments, burn their asherim with fire, cut down the graven images of their gods, and destroy their name from that place. (Deut. 12:2-3)

Why must all this happen? "to set His Name there" (Deut. 12:5)

This is a moment of Truth that political establishment of the world nations cannot handle or digest, that "democracy" cannot digest either.

Hashem began Torah by establishing HIS OWNERSHIP OF THE WORLD: "In the beginning Hashem created, heaven and Earth......" So be it the land of Canaanites or Shmeinanates, temporarily.

Ultimately its ALWAYS HIS LAND. Only HIS NAME belongs on it.

The people who worship idols, thus putting 'other names' on the land thru idol worship, stand to be evicted from it. The people who come to recognize and sanctify His Name are to posses it.

Things like precedence and land claims have no standing in His System because all that matters is the behavior of the nation that either has or does not have the merit to be in His Land.

May our nation have the merit and sanctify His Name in the Land forever. Amen!
