Biblical Faith – with Sam Peak
Weekly series with new shows available every Tuesday.
When we look at the world in general, at its history since Creation, and when we read the predictions of the Prophets, we recognize that humanity itself passes through four different basic states of being. The first state was one where ignorance and darkness prevailed among mankind, and true knowledge of G-d and His perfection were greatly obscured. The second state is somewhat better, and it is the one in which we now live. The third state is still better, and this is the state that existed while the Holy Temple stood. The fourth state is the very best, and this is the state that the prophets predicted for the ultimate future.
