Miracles for the Messianic Era

Miracles for the Messianic Era FFOZ

Devarim 34:10-12

There has not risen again a prophet in Israel like Moses, whom Adonai knew face to face, with all the signs and wonders Adonai sent him to do in the land of Egypt—to Pharaoh, all his servants, and all his land— by the strong hand and great awe that Moses did in the sight of all Israel.

The Midrash Rabah explains how the miracles of the Messianic Era and the world to come will eclipse the miracles of Moses. The midrash lists ten amazing signs and wonders of the future.

“We find ten things which the Holly One, blessed be He, will mnake new in the age to come:

  1. He will cause light to shine on the whole world, for it says in Isaiah 60:19 ‘No more will the sun be your light by day, nor the glow of the moon be your light, but Adonai will be your everlasting light, and your God for your glory. No more will your sun set, nor will your moon wane, for Adonai will be your everlasting light’.

  2. HaShem will cause living water to flow from Jerusalem which will heal the sick, as it says in Ezekiel 47:9 ‘It will be that every living creature that swarms will live wherever the rivers go. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because this water goes there and makes the salt water fresh. So everything will be healed and live wherever the river goes’.

  3. He will cause trees to bear fruit each month which will bring healing, for it says in Ezekiel 47:12, ‘On the river, on its bank, on this side and that side, will grow every kind of tree for food. Its leaf will not wither; its fruit will not fail; it will bear new fruit every month, because its water flows out from the Sanctuary. Its fruit will be for food and its leaf will be for healing."

  4. All ruined cities will be rebuilt, even Sodom and Gemorrah will be rebuilt in the age to come, as it says in Ezekiel 16:55 ‘Your sisters, Sodom and her daughters, Samaria and her daughters, will return to their former state. You and your daughters will return to your former state.’

  5. HaShem will rebuild Jerusalem with sapphire stones, as it says in Isaiah 54:11-12 ‘Afflicted one, storm-tossed, unconsoled, behold, I set your stones in antimony, lay your foundations with sapphires, make your pinnacles of rubies, your gates of crystal, and all your walls of precious stones. ‘

  6. The cow and the bear will lie down together as it says in Isaiah 11:7-8 ‘The cow and the bear will graze, their young ones lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like an ox. A nursing child will play by a cobra's hole, and a weaned child will put his hand into a viper's den.’

  7. He will make a covenant with the wild creatures, birds and creeping things as it says in Hosea 2:18 ‘In that day I will make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, the flying creatures in the sky, and the creeping things on the ground.’

  8. There will be no more weeping and crying in the world, fr it says in Isaiah 65:19 ‘Then I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and be glad in My people. No longer will the voice of weeping or the voice of crying be heard in her’.

  9. There will be no more death in the world, for it says in Isaiah 25:8 ‘He will swallow up death forever. my Lord Adonai will wipe away tears from every face. He will remove His people's reproach from all the earth. For Adonai has spoken.’

10. There will no longer be any sighing, crying or sorrow, for it says Isaiah 35:10

‘The ransomed of Adonai will return and come to Zion with singing, with

everlasting joy upon their heads. They will obtain gladness and joy, and

sorrow and sighing will flee away.’

If the miracles that the Father accomplished through Moshe Rabeinu appears impossible for human minds to conceive of, how much more awaits us in olam haba – the world to come!
