The String of Faith

"At the end of days, before the coming of the Messiah, God shall take a string, a "string of faith," and stretch it around the world. Many a man will attemp to grab that string and to hang on to it. However, God will appoint two angels to hold the string at both ends, instructing them to shake it violently as the days of Messiah near. It will become increasingly difficult to maintain a grasp on the string, and as the years go by, many, many will slip and fall. I am telling you this, my brothers, so that those living at that time will know, and take heed."

-Rabbi Israel Friendman of Rizhyn (Russia, 1797-19850), translated by Mayer Schiller, The Road Back, pg.11.
