Are there Enemies

By Rabbi Michael Skobac

Psalm 92:10

"For behold Your enemies, Hashem; for behold Your enemies shall perish..."

The Baal Shem Tov taught that that this should be read as follows: For behold your enemies are Hashem, behold your enemies disappear!"

When a person realizes that everything in this world, even his enemies and obstacles are actually agents of Hashem and manifestations of His light, then "behold your enemies disappear" - they are no longer enemies!

Very thought provoking! Thank you Rabbi! B"H! I do have a question though: What about cause and effect? 🤔
