WISDOM FROM AN ANCIENT RABBI

You will make the most important decision of your life when you read the following words from an Ancient Rabbi.  How you make the decision will determine where you will spend eternity, and will also determine if you are wise or meshugah:

A story is recorded in the Talmud (Berakhot 28) in which the most distinguished
disciple of Hillel, Yohanan ben Zakkai, was dying.

Some years after the destruction of the Temple, the disciples of this important
leader gathered around him as he lay on his deathbed and found him weeping.

They asked him, “Rabbi, you are the light of Israel, the pillar on which we
lean, the hammer that crushes all heresy.  Why should you weep?”

This Second Temple era sage confessed to his disciples that he was weeping
because he was about to stand before the “King of Kings, the Holy One,”
and he wasn’t sure whether he would end up in Paradise or hell!

The only way to Paradise is accepting the Blood atonement of Suffering Messiah Yeshua .    

“But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are
healed… the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.”  (Isaiah 53:5-6)
