A Declarations And Decrees: Be With The Spirit And Continue To Seek His Direction

Acts 16:6-10; John 14:15-17, 25-27; Colossians 1:4-13 (NASB)

Acts 16:6-10

6 They passed through the Phrygian and Galatian region, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia;

7 and after they came to Mysia, they were trying to go into Bithynia, and the Spirit of Jesus did not permit them;

8 and passing by Mysia, they came down to Troas.

9 A vision appeared to Paul in the night: a man of Macedonia was standing and appealing to him, and saying, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.”

10 When he had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go into Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them.

John 14:15-17, 25-27

15 “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.

16 I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever;

17 that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.

25 “These things I have spoken to you while abiding with you.

26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.

27 Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.

Colossians 1:4-14

4 since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and the love which you have for all the saints;

5 because of the hope laid up for you in heaven, of which you previously heard in the word of truth, the gospel

6 which has come to you, just as in all the world also it is constantly bearing fruit and increasing, even as it has been doing in you also since the day you heard of it and understood the grace of God in truth;

7 just as you learned it from Epaphras, our beloved fellow bond-servant, who is a faithful servant of Christ on our behalf,

8 and he also informed us of your love in the Spirit.

9 For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding,

10 so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;

11 strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously

12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light.

13 For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,

14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

I write these decrees in the Name of Jesus Christ and in His authority and through His power. The Angelic troops stand ready to dispatch these decrees to the heavenly realms to the rulers, and authorities, and to post in the King’s Palace (Revelations 2 and 3, Ephesians 3:10, Esther 8:10, 13).

» We declare the Comforting Counselor, the Spirit of Truth is with you FOREVER! YOU ARE NEVER ALONE! The world cannot receive Him, because it neither sees nor knows Him. Lord, we speak sight to the eyes of the spiritually blind, that they might see Your Goodness.

A Declarations And Decrees: Time To Fast & Pray Humble Yourself Before Elohim

2 John 1:7-11; 2 Peter 2:1-3; Acts 4:29-33; Ezra 8:21-23 (NASB)

2 John 1:7-11

7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist.

8 Watch yourselves, that you do not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward.

9 Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son.

10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting;

11 for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds.


2 Peter 2:1-3

1 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.

2 Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned;

3 and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.


Acts 4:29-37

29 And now, Lord, take note of their threats, and grant that Your bond-servants may speak Your word with all confidence,

30 while You extend Your hand to heal, and signs and wonders take place through the name of Your holy servant Jesus.”

31 And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness.

32 And the congregation of those who believed were of one heart and soul; and not one of them claimed that anything belonging to him was his own, but all things were common property to them.

33 And with great power the apostles were giving testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and abundant grace was upon them all.


Ezra 8:21-23

21 Then I proclaimed a fast there at the river of Ahava, that we might humble ourselves before our God to seek from Him a safe journey for us, our little ones, and all our possessions.

22 For I was ashamed to request from the king troops and horsemen to protect us from the enemy on the way, because we had said to the king, “The hand of our God is favorably disposed to all those who seek Him, but His power and His anger are against all those who forsake Him.”

23 So we fasted and sought our God concerning this matter, and He listened to our entreaty.

I write these decrees in the Name of Jesus Christ and in His authority and through His power. The Angelic troops stand ready to dispatch these decrees to the heavenly realms to the rulers, and authorities, and to post in the King’s Palace (Revelations 2 and 3, Ephesians 3:10, Esther 8:10, 13).

» We decree and declare Servants of the Most High God are AWARE for many deceivers have gone out into the World, people who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ’s/Yeshua Messiah’s coming as a human being. Such people are deceivers and operate in the anti-Christ/anti-Messiah spirit.

» We decree INCREASED DISCERNMENT, UNDERSTANDING AND WISDOM for the Body of Christ/Messiah. Be cautious of new acquaintances until they have proven their faith. False prophets and false teachers will come into your midst under false pretenses. In their greed, they will exploit you with fabricated stories. Walk cautiously being led by Holy Spirit.

» We declare to God’s People RECOGNIZE those who go ahead and do not remain true to what Christ/Messiah has taught does not have God. In contrast, those who REMAIN TRUE to His teaching have both the Father and the Son.

» We declare this WARNING: if someone comes to you and does not teach Jesus Christ/Yeshua Messiah coming in the flesh, don’t welcome him into your home or community. Don’t even say, “Peace/Shalom!” to him; for the person who says, “Peace/Shalom!” to him shares in his evil deeds.

» We decree a time of FASTING and PRAYING as we HUMBLE ourselves before our God. We declare that God alone is our Shield. We decree and declare that Kim Jong Un’s threats are being NEUTRALIZED and ERASED.

» We declare that all people in North Korea and the targeted regions of the world are protected from the power of the enemy. Lord God Almighty, we LOOK TO YOU our Protector, our High Tower.

» We decree God’s People are walking in BOLDNESS! In North Korea and the surrounding countries Believers are stepping out and moving in Faith as they are led by Holy Spirit.

» We declare the Hand of our God is on ALL WHO SEEK HIM, for good; but His POWER and FURY is against all who abandon Him.

» We declare a CLEANSING and UNIFYING of the people of this land as these decrees go forth.

In the name of King Jesus Christ, empowered and led of the Holy Spirit of God, we dispatch the Angelic troops, throughout this land and in the spirit realm, to deliver these decrees to all, both flesh and spirit. The enemy, the principalities and powers, have no authority to act against these decrees of our King, the Lord God Almighty; their actions will be of no effect to God’s chosen ones, but will be turned back on themselves for destruction.

The Lord God Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth, we praise Your Name for You are True and Faithful and Just to perform it. Amen!

“Be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps lit.  Be like men who are waiting for their master when he returns from the wedding feast, so that they may immediately open the door to him when he comes and knocks.
Blessed are those slaves whom the master will find on the alert when he comes; truly I say to you, that he will gird himself to serve, and have them recline at the table, and will come up and wait on them.
Whether he comes in the second watch, or even in the third, and finds them so, blessed are those slaves.
“But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be broken into.  You too, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect.”
Peter said, “Lord, are You addressing this parable to us, or to everyone else as well?”
And the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and sensible steward, whom his master will put in charge of his servants, to give them their rations at the proper time? Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes.  Truly I say to you that he will put him in charge of all his possessions. But if that slave says in his heart, ‘My master will be a long time in coming,’ and begins to beat the slaves, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk; the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will cut him in pieces, and assign him a place with the unbelievers,”  
Luke 12:35-46.

“Uzziah was sixteen years old when he became king, and he reigned fifty-two years in Jerusalem; and his mother’s name was Jechiliah of Jerusalem.  He did right in the sight of the Lord according to all that his father Amaziah had done.
He continued to seek God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding through the vision of God; and as long as he sought the Lord, God prospered him. Now he went out and warred against the Philistines, and broke down the wall of Gath and the wall of Jabneh and the wall of Ashdod; and he built cities in the area of Ashdod and among the Philistines.
God helped him against the Philistines, and against the Arabians who lived in Gur-baal, and the Meunites.  The Ammonites also gave tribute to Uzziah, and his fame extended to the border of Egypt, for he became very strong.
Moreover, Uzziah built towers in Jerusalem at the Corner Gate and at the Valley Gate and at the corner buttress and fortified them…..
….. Under their direction was an elite army of 307,500, who could wage war with great power, to help the king against the enemy.  Moreover, Uzziah prepared for all the army shields, spears, helmets, body armor, bows and sling stones.
In Jerusalem he made engines of war invented by skillful men to be on the towers and on the corners for the purpose of shooting arrows and great stones. Hence his fame spread afar, for he was marvelously [miraculously] helped until he was strong.
But when he became strong, his heart was so proud that he acted corruptly, and he was unfaithful to the Lord his God, for he entered the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense,”   
2 Chronicles 26:3-9, 13-16.

“Now you write to the Jews as you see fit, in the king’s name, and seal it with the king’s signet ring; for a decree which is written in the name of the king and sealed with the king’s signet ring may not be revoked.”
So the king’s scribes were called at that time in the third month (that is, the month Sivan), on the twenty-third day; and it was written according to all that Mordecai commanded to the Jews, the satraps, the governors and the princes of the provinces which extended from India to Ethiopia, 127 provinces, to every province according to its script, and to every people according to their language as well as to the Jews according to their script and their language.
He wrote in the name of King Ahasuerus, and sealed it with the king’s signet ring, and sent letters by couriers on horses, riding on steeds sired by the royal stud.
In them the king granted the Jews who were in each and every city the right to assemble and to defend their lives, to destroy, to kill and to annihilate the entire army of any people or province which might attack them, including children and women, and to plunder their spoil, on one day in all the provinces of King Ahasuerus, the thirteenth day of the twelfth month (that is, the month Adar).
A copy of the edict to be issued as law in each and every province was published to all the peoples, so that the Jews would be ready for this day to avenge themselves on their enemies.  The couriers, hastened and impelled by the king’s command, went out, riding on the royal steeds; and the decree was given out at the citadel in Susa,”
   Esther 8:8-14.

Czech President Zeman: Islamic Refugees are a Trojan Horse Phenomenon – Geller Report

Dateline, Prague, the Czech Republic, 2017: The Visegrad Group, also called the Visegrad Four, is the last hope for Europe’s longterm survival. They banded together against the Left of the EU, and are in alliance with Israel, naturally. This staunch group of East European nations that survived the ravages of war in the 20th century surely knows best about the harmful and failed policies of the Left with which the Soviet Communism was imposed on them during the Cold War. These nations lost the creme of the crop of their intelligentsia along with their entire genuine cultural and economic elites to the nihilism of the leftist social policies which were aligned with the Soviet military-political imperialism – just as today the leftist policies of the English-speaking world are aligned with the Pentagon’s imperialism of the Military-Industrial Complex regarding which the outgoing President Eisenhower warned the public. This unholy alliance between the conservative military and the radical Left is odd and shameful – and does not benefit the taxpayer. For instance, Iraq’s army and government were destroyed by the US military and the prostrate country handed over to the failed nation-building organized by a liberal brain. The consequence? America’s enemy Iran stood to gain and take over because the American victory in 2003 had no conservative brain with which to attempt a post-war, post-Saddam reconstruction of Iraq. Moreover, the removal of the secular Baathist movement in Iraq (along with its managerial bureaucracy) ensured an open door to Islam’s vile activists, such as the ISIS and the al-Qaeda operatives. The suppressed Iraqi Shi’ites, too, saw their opportunity and aligned themselves with Iran.

Likewise, the countries of Eastern Europe were ravaged by the Nazi and Soviet military, each of which enabled its particular brand of an agenda of the Left (the domestic political fuel behind the war) to impose a rigorous and ruthless regime of social re-engineering upon the defenceless nations of eastern Europe. Why should these world history-aware nations allow for this to happen to them again, even if the method of imposition isn’t as primitive as it used to be? To be sure, the EU is putting pressure through various forms of bureaucratic blackmail.

To show that even the working principle behind the Nazi-Soviet eradication of the culture of Eastern Europe, along with its richly intellectual Jewry of yore, isn’t foreign to the apparatus of modern European Union organization – let us recall that in 1999, Serbia was treated with an imposed violence to force her to open up to the policies of the Left waiting in the wings behind the arms of NATO (allegedly in the name of the human rights of the Albanian-Muslim population in the south). Just like the Jews of East Europe, the non-Albanian minorities within Kosovo were thrown to the winds to secure an agenda. NATO defended the claims to the human rights of armed Albanian terrorists in 1999 who freely operated in Kosovo, Serbia, ambushing, killing and maiming whomever they pleased (because they were exempt from criticism since the Left-owned Media in the West granted them a free pass for the sake of an ulterior political motive). In Syria, the same approach has been applied by NATO and the Washington war lobby, although there it failed (the only instance in which this has ever happened). So, the military-political cookbook with which the policies of the Left in the West are imposed on foreign countries has not changed. The European Union used the battering arm of the NATO military organization to impose on Serbia the destruction that opened the doors to the social re-engineering policies of the Left to be applied on the prostrated and wounded country whose most sacred Medieval ground was just thrown into the lap of the barbarians at Europe’s door.

A Declaration And Decrees: God’s Holy People Set Apart & Protected And Delivered By Elohim

Exodus 8:22-24; 23:1-2; Joel 2:12-18; Psalm 64:7-10 (NASB)

Exodus 8:22-24

22 But on that day I will set apart the land of Goshen, where My people are living, so that no swarms of flies will be there, in order that you may know that I, the LORD, am in the midst of the land.

23 I will put a division between My people and your people. Tomorrow this sign will occur.”’”

24 Then the LORD did so. And there came great swarms of flies into the house of Pharaoh and the houses of his servants and the land was laid waste because of the swarms of flies in all the land of Egypt.

Exodus 23:1-2

1 “You shall not bear a false report; do not join your hand with a wicked man to be a malicious witness.

2 You shall not follow the masses in doing evil, nor shall you testify in a dispute so as to turn aside after a multitude in order to pervert justice;

—-

Joel 2:12-18

12 “Yet even now,” declares the Lord, “Return to Me with all your heart, and with fasting, weeping and mourning;

13 And rend your heart and not your garments.” Now return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, abounding in lovingkindness and relenting of evil.

14 Who knows whether He will not turn and relent and leave a blessing behind Him, even a grain offering and a drink offering for the Lord your God?

15 Blow a trumpet in Zion, consecrate a fast, proclaim a solemn assembly,

16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children and the nursing infants. Let the bridegroom come out of his room and the bride out of her bridal chamber.

17 Let the priests, the Lord’s ministers, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, “Spare Your people, O Lord, and do not make Your inheritance a reproach, a byword among the nations. Why should they among the peoples say, ‘Where is their God?’”

18 Then the Lord will be zealous for His land and will have pity on His people.

—-

Psalm 64:7-10

7 But God will shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly they will be wounded.

8 So they will make him stumble; their own tongue is against them; all who see them will shake the head.

9 Then all men will fear, and they will declare the work of God, and will consider what He has done.

10 The righteous man will be glad in the Lord and will take refuge in Him; and all the upright in heart will glory.

I write these decrees in the Name of Jesus Christ and in His authority and through His power. The Angelic troops stand ready to dispatch these decrees to the heavenly realms to the rulers, and authorities, and to post in the King’s Palace (Revelations 2 and 3, Ephesians 3:10, Esther 8:10, 13).

» We decree and declare the Lord God DISTINGUISHES BETWEEN HIS PEOPLE and those of this World. He SETS APART those who have consecrated and committed themselves to Him: those who are covered by the blood of the Lamb.

» We declare GOD KNOWS what will happen and WHEN. Nothing catches Him off guard. DO NOT FEAR what is taking place in the World—KEEP FOCUSED ON Jesus/Yeshua, be led by Holy Spirit and you will RISE ABOVE the confusion and chaos that is taking place on all side.

» We decree and declare MULTITUDES are HEARING the TRUTH of the Lord God Almighty; they are turning to HIM as the BLINDFOLDS are removed from their eyes.

» We declare the JUST SEPARATE THEMSELVES FROM WRONGDOING! They do not repeat false rumors; they do not join hands with the wicked; they do not follow the crowd when it does what is wrong; and they don’t allow the popular view to sway them into offering testimony for any cause if the effect will be to pervert justice.

» We decree that the LORD IS MERCIFUL and COMPASSIONATE! During hardships and tribulation the Lord calls the LOST and BACKSLIDDEN: “Yet even now,” says the Lord, “turn to Me WITH ALL YOUR HEART, with FASTING, WEEPING, and REPENTANCE.”

» We declare BLOW THE SHOFAR in Zion, throughout the Earth BLOW THE SHOFAR to proclaim a holy fast and call for a solemn assembly! Gather the People, CONSECRATE the congregation; assemble the leaders; gather the children; let the priests, bishops, pastors and leaders, who serve the Lord, STAND WEEPING.

» We decree and declare that the Lord will become jealous for His Land and have pity on His People. Then they will celebrate the Lord God Almighty, the First and the Last, the Great I AM!

» We decree that amidst the workings of the enemy SUDDENLY GOD SHOOTS THEM DOWN, leaving them with wounds; their own tongues make them stumble.

» We declare EVERYONE IS AWESTRUCK—they acknowledge that IT IS GOD AT WORK, they understand what HE HAS DONE. THE RIGHTEOUS REJOICE IN THE LORD; they take refuge in Him; all the upright in heart will glory in the Lord.

» We declare a CLEANSING and UNIFYING of the people of this land as these decrees go forth.

In the name of King Jesus Christ, empowered and led of the Holy Spirit of God, we dispatch the Angelic troops, throughout this land and in the spirit realm, to deliver these decrees to all, both flesh and spirit. The enemy, the principalities and powers, have no authority to act against these decrees of our King, the Lord God Almighty; their actions will be of no effect to God’s chosen ones, but will be turned back on themselves for destruction.

The Lord God Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth, we praise Your Name for You are True and Faithful and Just to perform it. Amen!

This Week’s Torah Portion | September 17 – September 23, 2017 – 26 Elul 5777 – 3 Tishrei, 5778

Haazinu (Give Ear) Parsha – Weekly Torah Portion

HA’AZINU

TORAH : DEUTERONOMY 32:1-32:52
PROPHETS : HOSEA 14:2-10; MICAH 7:18-20; JOEL 2:15-27
GOSPEL : JOHN 20:26-21:25

About the Weekly Torah Portion

From ancient times there has been a weekly portion (Parashah) from the first five books of Moses (The Torah) and an ending (Haftarah) from the Prophets read on the Sabbath in synagogues around the world. This portion is given a Hebrew name drawn from the opening words of the Torah passage.

We have found that in perusing these weekly readings, not only are we provided opportunity to identify in the context of God’s Word with millions of Jewish people around the world, but very often the Holy Spirit will highlight specific passages pertinent that week in our intercession for the Land and people of Israel.

The Haftarah, unless otherwise noted, will be that read in Ashkenazy synagogues around the world.

In A Nutshell

The portion, Haazinu (Give Ear), deals with the entrance to the land of Israel. Moses begins with a song that serves as a reminder to the people when they abandon the work of the Creator in the future. The song praises the guidance of the Creator and His choice of the people of Israel, and presents the people of Israel as stiff-necked and one that has turned to idol worship.

Afterward there is an explanation of the punishment in the case of committing idolatry, and a statement that the Creator will not help Israel against their enemies in such a case. However, to the extent that Israel repents, the Creator will save them from all their enemies.

When Moses concludes reading his song, the Creator commands him to climb up Mount Nevo and look from there at the land of Israel. He tells Moses that he will die and will not be awarded entrance to the land of Israel.

Commentary

The Torah contains all the secrets of the world. The Torah means instruction; it guides us on how we should conduct ourselves in order to advance. The Torah speaks of the whole of creation; it helps us cope with difficulties and shows us what to do.

The big question is why the Torah ends before the entrance to the land of Israel. In truth, the struggles, problems, the great dilemmas, and the difficulties of coping with all that awaits the people henceforth— especially in this portion,—are already in us.

The people has reached a state where it is ready to advance and enter the land of Israel, to cope with all the problems, and to rise above them. It is precisely through this war that the people acquires the land of Israel. The story speaks of our desires, our forces, which have become corrected through the light, through everything that we have done and went through in the desert in order to be ready to enter the land of Israel.

The song, Haazinu, praises the Creator, the force of bestowal. It stresses that we must always remember to interpret what is happening accurately, and extol the force of bestowal, the value of love of others, which is the great rule of the Torah, and for which we do all that we do. “Love your neighbor as yourself” is more just than a maxim; it is the purpose of each and every action, a rule that includes all our efforts.

The song praises the people of Israel, those desires in us that want to rise, be like the Creator, giving with the aim to bestow or even receiving with the aim to bestow. The song praises all those desires called “the people of Israel” because they are the greatest and the most important.

Every now and again we should remind ourselves that the Creator supports us only in acts of bestowal. That is, if we wish to receive any support or blessing on our way, we will merit them only if we advance toward the conquering of the land, toward conquering all of our egotistical desires—which currently govern us—and turn them into the aim to bestow.

We should see it in our world today, as well. We are being exposed to our own corrupted system, the inclusive global crisis, which can be resolved only through bonding between us. This is the only way we can rise above the overall crisis and build what is called the “spiritual land of Israel.”

Exiting the crisis is our own exodus from Egypt—through the great problems we are experiencing, through the vagueness, miscomprehension, and disorientation, just as in the desert. We have no idea where to go or how to get there. no clear goals, no idea what we should do, and yet we arrive at the land of Israel. We cross the desert when we give up everything out of the desire to truly be in the aim to bestow, in unity between us. When we begin to connect, we build between us a desire that is Yashar El (straight to God), Ysrael (Israel).

Eretz (land) comes from the word Ratzon (desire). It is Yashar El when all our desires aim at one another and the network of connections between us builds the Kli called Eretz Ysrael (land of Israel).

This is why it is written that once humanity completes the process of corrections and scrutinies, the land of Israel will spread throughout the world as “The land of beauty.” [1] In the end, all the desires of humanity will unite and become one, “as one man with one heart,” and this is the main theme of the great singing, Haazinu.

If we do not advance toward that, we will face problems and troubles, which will not only turn us around and mercilessly direct us back toward the goal and without favorable support, but they will also show us where we are erring each time and how we should advance.

Moses is only an observer. He cannot do more than that. He only makes the general correction of looking at the land of Israel. Moses is called the “faithful shepherd,” the pure quality of bestowal. This is why he can only see the land of Israel in the light that is in GAR de Bina, by which he will help pave the way for the people Israel, through his gazing.

Gazing refers to corrections. Being the Rosh (head) of the degree is what Moses does. It is also how we enter the land of Israel, as well as traverse it using Moses’ power.

The title of the portion is Haazinu (Give Ear). What is Haazinu and what is singing?

There is no seeing before the land of Israel. All of our Kelim (vessels) are Kelim of hearing and seeing. Hearing is the degree of Bina, and seeing is the degree of Hochma. Afterward, both of them rise together to Keter.

We ourselves are in Malchut, so first, Malchut ascends to Bina. We ascend to Bina through the desert. The force of bestowal walks ahead and we chase it, striving to catch up with it against our will.

That state, that journey, is truly a desert: dry, lifeless, empty, and everything happens with great difficulty. Yet, this is the only way to obtain the force of bestowal above our will to receive.

Man is built to want to enjoy life. This is why we all strive to satisfy ourselves. We do not want to be considerate of anyone, as though our will to receive is telling us, “I want to have the whole world and the next world, and there is no one in the world but me and the Creator, who will serve me.”

We have to correct ourselves into the opposite, and advance in such a way that all of our “selves,” our desires, thoughts, qualities, and everything within us and about us aims to bestow. These corrections will allow us to connect to the whole of the great Kli and discover the spiritual world and our own spiritual lives, where we are included in this immense force called “Creator,” so we do not feel that we belong to the animate level, but to another level of existence.

We build what is called the “speaking” by acquiring the force of faith, to only bestow, to connect with others, to only find channels of bestowal and connections we are not yet activating.

In the desert, we need Moses’ power, which is like the sun. Joshua, with whom we enter the land of Israel, is like the moon. When we rise above Egypt, we face our own egotistical desire and acquire the level of Bina, the level of Ozen (ear), hearing.

Moses, who began the degree on Mount Sinai, is also the one who now ends it, upon the entrance to the land of Israel, on Mount Nevo, which is his last stop. Haazinu is the conveyance of Moses’ force, which we acquired one at a time in the forty years of the desert.

Forty is the sign that we have risen to the level of forty, the degree of Bina. This is why it was said that a man is forbidden to study Torah (Kabbalah) before the age of forty. The level of forty means that a person has not yet acquired the degree of Bina, and therefore cannot see. He has not acquired seeing, but only hearing, and the Torah is called the “attainment of the Creator.”

Is Haazinu a sort of conclusion of the degree of Bina?

Conclusion means the connection of all the degrees of the desert, which are given to the people of Israel together, and prepare it to enter from the desert into the land of Israel.

Moses Revealed on the Day when He Departed from the World

“At the time when Moses said, ‘Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak,’ the worlds shook. A voice came forth and said, ‘Moses, Moses, why are you alarming the world? You are the son of man, and because of you the world will quake.’ He started and said, ‘For I shall call on the name of the Lord.’ At that time they became silent and listened to his words.”

Zohar for All, Haazinu (Give Ear), item 22

This concludes Moses’ role, and he hands over everything to Joshua, the degree of the moon. Joshua is not bestowing of his own, but only of what he received from Moses. Joshua acquired from Moses the force of bestowal only because he was devoted to him. He did not study, but served him.

We, too, need to understand that if we serve the world, then we will rise and acquire the whole of creation. This is the role of the Israeli nation, to be “a light for the nations,” to correct ourselves and be “a kingdom of priests and a holy nation” (Exodus 19:6).

In the degree of the desert, we correct ourselves and prepare ourselves to serve others. In the degree of the land of Israel, we begin to work with the desires to receive and turn them into ones that aim to bestow. These degrees testify that we are already working with the nations of the world, meaning with the whole of humanity.

What does it mean that the Creator helps or does not help the nation face its enemies? How does one tell if He is helping or not?

We are always in the constant state where everything is filled with light and the Creator is ever-present. However, all of it is hidden from us because we are hiding it with our uncorrected Kelim, with our desires and thoughts. The more corrected we become—connected among us in bestowal, love, and unity—the more we will discover the force that fills the whole of reality, even now.

Therefore, whether He helps or not depends on a person’s direction. If a person is moving toward Him, labors to be like Him, to the extent of one’s equivalence of form with the Creator—according to the laws of equivalence of form—one discovers Him. It is just as a radio receiver operates: when it is tuned to receive the right wavelength, we hear what is present on that frequency.

Is it enough to want it or does one also need to carry it out?

We need to perform certain actions, but not in order to say, “I want it,” but in order to really want it. Therefore, wanting is enough, but it is not simple to say, “I want it.” It is not a matter of words. Rather, within that desire there must also be the decision that all I want is for it to happen.

For example, if a person wishes to connect with others only in order to benefit others, in “love your neighbor as yourself,” that person must examine how he or she is trying to use the whole of reality in favor another, and then in favor of more and more people. This is the opposite of the way people act now, when we use the whole of reality for ourselves.

In other words, does the other become more important than the self?

This is the meaning by “as yourself,” more than yourself. It is just as a mother treats her baby.

Should it be in the intentions? Is it not enough to physically give to others all that I have?

It is not about the physical world. This world is completely insignificant here. This concerns the connection of the hearts, our souls, our emotions, since the whole of reality—the whole of the matter that has been created—consists of desire. By “desire” we mean its direction and how we use it. We need nothing but to want, as it is written, “The Lord will finish for me” (Psalms 138:8).

The upper force that we discover as being here among us is what builds the network. This is the work of God. We need not do a thing; there are no actions in us; we cannot do anything but ask that it will be done. We saw it with the people that erred in different deeds in the transit through the desert, when it did not know how to ask, how to demand, how to reveal.

There is an element here that seems educational. The Creator is seemingly saying, “I know you will sin in your direction in some way. You will be punished for it and then you will repent.” What good will it do?

When you bring up a child you do not say such a thing, but rather, “Listen, it’s best for you to do this or that,” while giving a personal example. When the child errs we let him or her understand that it was a mistake. We do not come to a child and say, “We know you will make mistakes, so be careful because you will be punished, but then you will repent and you will be fine.” These are not helpful words.

We are not required to be good. Rabbi Akiva knew about the ruin of the Temple in advance, so when the ruin finally arrived he laughed. Jacob wanted to tell all his sons about what was happening to them. Rabbi Shimon knew what sort of book he was writing, and for what times, as well as what would happen along the way, and we, too, need to experience these events. From this time on we are beginning to discover that everything is right before us and has been prepared for us.

It is clear that we will make mistakes every step of the way, and each of us will discover the sin of Adam HaRishon in all of our 613 desires. Yet, our mistake will be if we do not ask, if we do not request and demand of the upper force, the Creator. Only when we connect with others as much as we can do we discover how we hate and repel them. Therefore, we must demand of the Creator to keep the connection, and not us, or the result will either be corruption or that we will discover that it is the opposite, and flee.

We need not be fear revealing the shattering between us, the great ego. We also need not bow to other gods. Rather, we should ask for the correction here instead of running.

If we do this, we will do everything correctly and we will not make mistakes. However, in truth, we make mistakes each time because we cannot quite discover our point of contact with the Creator. We must exert in the correct approach, as well, where we try to act like babies. But following great efforts and tremendous work, we must still err, reveal the shattering, and learn that we are incapable. Only then do we discover the right kind of evil.

We discover the evil of the right kind of shattering, the proper one. For that, too, we need the light, the revelation of the Creator. When it happens we see the place that the Creator needs to fix. We see the great shattering, the great correction, and we receive everything pre-prepared. In fact, we are only present in the process while it is happening—our great ego, the revelations, and up to the place of the shattering and its correction.

What is the idea behind the climb up Mount Nevo? Moses went up and gazed but was not permitted to enter the land of Israel. This sounds a little cruel because he was permitted to see the beauty from afar but was not permitted to reach it.

The Creator said to Moses in advance that they were approaching the land of Israel and that he was going to die, and that Joshua would replace him. It sounds inhuman, heartless, but the degree of Moses is not directly related to the land of Israel at the end of correction.

Moses represents the whole of the light of the sun, all the light. But for now the land of Israel needs to be conquered and corrected, and only the force of bestowal can enter the land of Israel, only Joshua, the light of the moon. By letting in and correcting that force, the light of the moon, Joshua’s role ends, and only then does the end of correction arrive.

Once the people of Israel has entered the land of Israel there are only ruins, expulsions, and exiles. After some time there is a return to the land of Israel, and only now are we implementing all the corrections and are arriving at a state where there are revelations of the genuine land of Israel, in the desire to receive with the aim to bestow. This is when we come to that state known as (Samuel 2, 23:20) “a valiant man of Kabzeel” (Rav Pe’alim Mekatze’el).

All the corrections we have made throughout the generations will come together in a single correction, the network of connections among us, among all the souls, will appear all at once, and everyone will truly be connected. This is when the force of Moses will burst, the light of the sun, together with Joshua, the force of the moon—“the two great lights” (Genesis 1:16)—and we will come to a day that is all good.

Have we made any corrections along the way? It seems that our current situation is worse than ever.

So far we have only been preparing ourselves. We have made no corrections so far, and we have not revealed all the corruptions. Only now, in this crisis, are we beginning to disclose them. The corruption and correction are close by; they are tied to one another. If we wish, we can do it very quickly because there is no need for them to be lengthy.

Is it up to us? It seems like the Creator is doing everything.

It depends on our request. We rush times. It is written (Masechet Berachot, 49a) that Israel sanctify (rush) times. We must “summon” the Creator to correct. It is the force of bestowal that is between us, the hidden light that is present even now, and which we must summon so as to correct us.

Summary:

Between us, we need the connection of “love your neighbor as yourself.” This is the entire correction we need to make. It is not simple, but it is the greatest thing, the great rule of the Torah. It is the whole of reality that must come together. Today we are discovering that we all need it. The whole world needs it, and this is the only way we will be able to come out of the crises we are in today.

We are truly in a shattered state, which is great. We are discovering the negative in us, and we need only demand of the Creator, together, with our common force, to try to connect us. Then we will discover Him, discover the spiritual, perfect, peaceful life, in endless harmony, to all, here and now.

Jeremiah 9:13-16, 21-24

13 The Lord said, “Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not obeyed My voice nor walked according to it,

14 but have walked after the stubbornness of their heart and after the Baals, as their fathers taught them,”

15 therefore thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, “behold, I will feed them, this people, with wormwood and give them poisoned water to drink.

16 I will scatter them among the nations, whom neither they nor their fathers have known; and I will send the sword after them until I have annihilated them.”

21 For death has come up through our windows; it has entered our palaces to cut off the children from the streets, the young men from the town squares.

22 Speak, “Thus says the Lord, ‘The corpses of men will fall like dung on the open field, and like the sheaf after the reaper, but no one will gather them.’”

23 Thus says the Lord, “Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches;

24 but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things,” declares the Lord.

I write these decrees in the Name of Jesus Christ and in His authority and through His power. The Angelic troops stand ready to dispatch these decrees to the heavenly realms to the rulers, and authorities, and to post in the King’s Palace (Revelations 2 and 3, Ephesians 3:10, Esther 8:10, 13).

» We decree and declare your Lord, God Almighty, REMEMBERS YOU and will fulfill His PROMISES to you! When you CALL to Him and PRAY to Him, HE WILL LISTEN. He will be found by you IF YOU SEEK FOR HIM WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART.

» We declare God has YOUR DESTINY PLANNED, beyond your imagination, plans for well-being so that you can have hope and a future.

» We declare Those who seek to OBEY God’s WORD and observe His INSTRUCTIONS, will be FILLED WITH HIS JOY! Those who seek to FOLLOW HIS WAY will not be put to shame.

» We decree the LIFE of God’s People is to LOVE HIS WORD and MEDITATE on it each and every day. God’s Servants are wiser than their foes, because they HUNGER for HIS TRUTH.

» We declare the PROMISES of God are SWEETER THAN HONEY! We gain understanding from His precepts. His WORD is a lamp for our feet and a light on our path.

» We declare those who have ABANDONED the TEACHINGS and COMMANDMENTS of God Most high will find themselves DESOLATE and LACKING. When mankind thinks his ways are superior to the WAYS OF GOD, he has separated himself from the LORD’S TRUTH.

» We decree and declare the WISE MAN should BOAST ONLY that he UNDERSTANDS the Lord God Almighty: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Mankind should not boast of his own wisdom, the powerful should not boast of his power, the wealthy should not boast of his wealth.

» We declare It is the Lord who practices GRACE, JUSTICE and RIGHTEOUSNESS in the Land, for in these things He takes pleasure.

» We declare a CLEANSING and UNIFYING of the people of this land as these decrees go forth.

In the name of King Jesus Christ, empowered and led of the Holy Spirit of God, we dispatch the Angelic troops, throughout this land and in the spirit realm, to deliver these decrees to all, both flesh and spirit. The enemy, the principalities and powers, have no authority to act against these decrees of our King, the Lord God Almighty; their actions will be of no effect to God’s chosen ones, but will be turned back on themselves for destruction.

The Lord God Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth, we praise Your Name for You are True and Faithful and Just to perform it. Amen!
