Tisha B'Av, A Question.

Tisha B’Av, the Fast of the Ninth of Av, is a day of mourning to commemorate the many tragedies that have befallen the Jewish people, many of which have occurred on the ninth of Av. This is a quote from Judaism 101

Yes there are many similar descriptions of Ninth of Av(meaning of Tisha B’Av).

In the middle of Shabbat night, I awoke with these thoughts:

Tisha B’Av, On this day we strive to remember the losses. The House of the Name, which King Solomon built, the second Temple destroyed 70 c.e. along the other terrible events that have happened to the Jewish people. I have heard it said, by a Rabbi, that these continue to happen because we have not learned our lesson.

This was the first time that I can remember hearing that Last Line. It is this one line that has caused me more concern for a couple of decades than most anything else. “We have not learned our lesson!!!” Ouch.
Here is my real question: “Truly consider, right now. Don’t wait until later. You don’t know how much time you have left, until the last one happens.(The world will not survive this one.)
How much will you personally need to suffer, before you would consider seeking The ALMIGHTY?

Before you decide that you must change your heart and save your soul be becoming Righteous before The GOD Of Abraham, GOD Of Isaac, GOD OF Jacob?

References:

Leviticus 26:40 And they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, in their treachery which they committed against Me, and also that they have walked contrary unto Me.

Deuteronomy 30:1 And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt bethink thyself among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee, 2 and shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and hearken to His voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thy heart, and with all thy soul;

Can not read Biblical Hebrew? I offer this translation as a reasonable starting place.

I Use It: A TORAH which is also a Tanakh (Old Testament) containing the Prophets of GOD’S WORD for confirmation of the instructions, and the Writings which so the history of how we get it right or wrong and some consequences.

So what are You Going to Do About THAT? Knowing now that you are responsible your outcome.

Isaiah 10:23 For an extermination wholly determined shall the Lord, the GOD of hosts, make in the midst of all the earth.

Make sure that those YOU follow are capable of saving you.

I can show you the way, if you want to know.

IT is to our benefit to HEARKEN until the LIVING GOD OF ISHRAEL/ISRAEL, and to our pain and shame to do otherwise.

My prayer is that The LORD grant you eyes that see, ears that hear and an understanding heart, then you return unto HIM soon!(Isaiah 6: 9 And He said: ‘Go, and tell this people: hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. 10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they, seeing with their eyes, and hearing with their ears, and understanding with their heart, return, and be healed.’)
