Torah thoughts that were said at my Shabbos table! By Menachem
Hashem said ‘I have hardened Pharoh heart’. The meforshim ask, If so, then what was the purpose of sending Moshe Rabbenu to warn Pharoh? He couldn’t repent because Hashem hardened his heart!
The Nisavos Shalom explains that we see that when a person is in tremendous physical danger they are able to do physical acts to save themselves that are impossible for them to do under normal circumstances. The body releases adrenaline to assist with the ‘Fight or Flight Response’.
So too in the spiritual realm. When we are in spiritual danger, Hashem gives us ‘Spiritual Adrenaline’ which can give us unnatural strength to save our souls! Pharoh could have utilized this strength even If Hashem hardened his heart! But as we learned Pharoh only understood nature. The existence of anything above nature, was something he was unable to recognize.
