“I come to gather nations of every language; they shall come and see My Glory…”

Isaiah 66:18

Who Will Be Mashiach ?

David, the young shepherd boy who became King was anointed by the prophet Samuel and declared as one “most like the heart of God”. He was given the promise of an everlasting dynasty of rule, reigning over the “people of God” forever because “the Lord had sought out a man after his own heart” 1 Samuel 13:14. While there are many traditions as to what this means even today the simplest way to understand this is that God desired a heart like his in order to establish his Kingdom. Reading more into this we can say innocently that a pure heart is most like the heart of God who IS PURITY.
Often, pureness means innocence not necessarily intelligence. We see this in the laws of family purity, in modestly and in young children who do things that seem right to them but are often learning opportunities in life to understand discernment in the difference between right and wrong in the eyes of God.

We see this in the motives of Saul, who was the first King of Israel appointed by the people rather than Gd who foolishly kept not the commandments of God and was told his kingdom would not continue by God after his choices never evolved to discernment for what was truly right in the eyes of God proving his leadership was worthless. This also reveals the importance of intention of the heart over all other qualities of intelligence alone and what was needed to rule a people of God within His will and authority.

One must ask why then since that prophetic utterance by Samuel long ago, has the DAVIDIC DYNASTY suffered so to the point of 2000 with no reigning King over the chosen people of God? What about those promises of God? Did we lose heart? Did God lose heart against the Jewish people? Some say yes, we did. Others say no God has always been around but in new ways. That topics will be explored in articles later but yes, while we await the forthcoming Messiah of Israel and the rebuilding of the Third Temple, hope is being reborn and a new look at what the heart of God really encompasses.

While we wait for the Third Temple, we also await the sign of the heart most like God that this King will have. Will we recognize it? According to our holy sages, the holy Third Temple will be a House of Prayer for all Nations filled with those who truly love God. Who will be able to come together in unity to worship the One God as the unifier of All Nations? How will that look? I believe will start and has already started not only with the help of the Holy One but with the Hearts of all people, the heart of God embodied that is always present within the promises of David. God’s heart has never abandoned us and has only been exiled in realization until such a time its value could truly be appreciated.
This Heart spread out over all the land in all peoples is what we hope the Moshiach will also be and be able to reflect to all those who truly, like David will have a pure heart of intention that is not biased, not selective, and certainly not proud but is a welcoming heart to all those who will come together to create a unified field of The One God. It will be a collective heart most like God that enables everyone who comes to say

Blessed is the “One” who comes IN the Name of the Lord
