Does God have to perform miracles every 40 years?!
Why hasn't he done miracles since the Exodus era?
These questions we often get, especially from people who seek the truth.
And there are two answers to that.
The first answer in length we can find in the words of Rabbi Moshe ben Nachman (the Ramban)
who lived about 950 years ago, detailed at the bottom of this post.
We learned it in a detailed lesson.
The second answer is much more poignant and painful.
If we take the Exodus as an example,
The whole world heard about the great miracles that happened there
And yet, except for Jethro, Moses' father-in-law
No one changed their faith or behavior!
Miracles don't change people!
So let's ask ourselves.
To leave one country after 430 years [Exodos 12:40]
We call that: Redemption.
What do we call a situation as the Hebrew Nation survived for 2000 years in Exile - Gathering from all countries of the world, more than 200 countries, and rebuilding their country, the State of Israel [!]
Isn't this with the help of God? Isn't it a miracle?!
And everyone hears and knows
Still, there are many explanations and excuses
Why not change your everyday life,
Why not believe that this is the hand of God in History?
But whoever reads these words is indeed similar to Jethro
who understood and responded and connected to the Creator of the world through the people of Israel
Blessings to you and all of your family
From Jerusalem, the city of God
"And because the Holy One, blessed be He, will not make signs and wonders in every generation for the eyes of some wicked man or heretic, He commanded us..." [Rabbi Moshe ben Nachman (the Ramban)]
