The wisdom of our sages
While watching a lecture by Rabbi Zamir Cohen, he said things that the sages foresaw on the messianic period, e.g. that bread will grow on plants and we can take them easily and won’t have to buy them at the grocery store. My question is how do the sages know the future? How did they know that this would happen? During the period of the Sages there were no prophets. I would be grateful if you CAN direct me to a video on the subject.
Dear Rabbi, on the Eve of Shabbat, after I lit the candles and said the blessing I remembered that I had forgotten to water the plants and I was worried they would dry out on Shabbat. Therefore, I watered them and immediately after prayed by the candles. Is that ok? If not, what should I have done? Thank you in advance, Haddas
