Calling the Holy Land Eretz Israel

The holy Torah calls Israel earth/land: בראשית, ברא אלהים, את השמים, ואת הארץ - In the beginning HaShem created the heaven and the earth. It does not say את השמים, ואת המדינה... The heaven and the state...

What is land? Land is a Kingdom; a solid part of the earth's surface; people who live in a land is a nation; a place of rest, "he returned to the land of his birth".

Since our return as a nation to the Holy Land, the secular Erev Rav government named Israel a State. A state of what? The 52nd state of Unites States?!

What is a State? A state is a politically organized body of people under a single government; a group of people comprising the government of a sovereign state; a territory; a possession.

Every centimeter, every inch of Eretz Yisrael which Hashem gave to us is Holy, it's Admat Kodesh, Eretz Israel. Respect the Holy Land that HaShem gave us and call her by her correct name, Eretz Israel.

It's very dangerous to call Eretz Israel a State מדינת ישראל. When switching the letters מדינת, it is דין מת Judgement of Death - it is forbidden to also change children's names. If your name is Yaakov, don't let people call you Koby, or Jack or Jake... If your name is Devorah, don't let people call you Debbie, Deb, etc. You must keep your name - even if you were given an English name such as Elizabeth. Do not change it to Liz, or Beth - changing the name is changing the Mazal (luck)!!!

החיים והמוות בידי הלשון - Life and Death is via the tongue.




והיה השם למלך על כל הארץ, ביום ההוא יהיה השם אחד - ושמו אחד ישתבח שמו לעד לנצח נצחים בכל העולמות Blessed is His name for eternity in all worlds אין עוד מלבדו
