Hashem Forms Light and Creates Darkness (Isaiah 45:7)

During this time before the world has completed it’s tikkun, spiritual correction, the grey areas prevail and the majority of people are easily misled. While society looks up to those who pursue their bodily desires, spiritual leaders are mocked and scorned. Most people see darkness and call it light, then see light and call it darkness.

Only Hashem can make the perfect separation between light and darkness. King Solomon said, “The righteous and the wicked God will judge” (Ecclesiastes 3:17). Only Hashem can define good and evil. Only in Olam Haba, the World to Come, will we find a clear differentiation between truth and lies, good and evil. Our bodies, if driven by lust, appetites, and the Yetzer Hara, Evil Inclination, can easily mislead us. Our Sages warn us not to trust ourselves until our last day on earth (Avot 2:4). Hashem delineates between light and darkness, but we can still succumb to the chaos in the grey areas…
