The Temple Mount Is Literally Connected to New Madrid-Yellowstone and Cascadia Subduction Zone

Sir Isaac Newton dedicated his life’s work to studying the ever elusive, prisca sapientia (ancient wisdom).  Time and space are interwoven in our physical universe, it is my suspicion that they are both also interwoven in prophecy.
In the first few blogs,  we will look into the late David Flynn’s book,  The Temple at the Center of Time.  Flynn suggests that an empire’s distance from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, seems to reflect the time that it “falls,” with respect to it’s aggressive behavior towards Israel.  If his theory about the past is true,  than one can infer  that this phenomenon can (or will) be repeated in the future.

 
Page 48-  The David Flynn Collection/Temple at the Center of Time
“The measure of distance away from Jerusalem in this text implies a spiritual significance.  A relationship between Jerusalem and the nations has existed from the foundation of the temple, but has not been completely perceived –and could not be until the conventions of modern science.
If a measurement is arced from the point of the temple of Jerusalem’s foundation stone, to the palace of Balthazar, the political center of Babylon, and the exact location the writing on the wall occurred, the distance should relate to the pivotal period that city most influenced Jerusalem.  According to current knowledge, such a relationship exists, and is the distance of 539.86 statute miles.
According to the Babylonian Chronicles, Babylon fell to the Medes and the Persians on the sixteenth day of Tishri of the Jewish calendar, which is also October 12, 539 BC.
Modern satellite measurements between the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and the center of ancient Babylon correspond perfectly to the year and month of Babylon’s fall. (emphasis mine)
…… The prisca sapientia relationship in the year of Babylon’s fall and the distance between Babylon and Jerusalem is recorded in statute miles.  However, this is not the only linear value that expresses this phenomenon.  The nautical mile can also be used to establish significant prophetic and time based results.”
 
So back up the train…….This nation’s “fall” in 539 BC, just so happened to be the same distance in statute miles from the Temple Mount?  Did this phenomenon happen more than once? Can it happen to nations that have a positive effect on Israel? According to Flynn, yes, yes and yes.  Due to the length of the book, I do not have the time to go into great detail here. A positive example of this distance=time phenomenon, is when the Jewish people were restored to their land in 1948.  Flynn states, “Britain was the nation that was “”friendly to the Jews”” and enabled them to return to Israel.” The distance between the Cornerstone of the Holy of Holies at Temple Mount and the “London Stone” at the center of the city of Londinium, (as London was known by in 47 AD) is 1948.40 nautical miles.

Temple Cornerstone
 
And where is the cornerstone of the Temple anyhow?  Many theologians disagree quite a bit on this topic.
Flynn states in chapter nine of Temple at the Center of Time, that it is located directly under The Dome of the Spirits, currently resting on the northwest corner of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
This should be the landmark on which every measurement out from the Temple Mount should be started from.
 

The red marker above shows the location of The Dome of the Spirits, suggested place of the cornerstone where the Holy of Holies would have rested upon, in the Jewish Temple.  It is the only currently exposed bedrock on the Temple Mount left unpaved.
 

Future Prophetic Events
 
If this is all true, (and Flynn cites other historical examples of God’s linear timeline, or arc principle), than one could assume that it could be applied in the future, to other nations as well.
Joel 3:2, the Lord says:  “I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.  Then I will enter into judgment with them there on my behalf of my people and my inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided up my land.”
 
So, we can assume that God can and will divide the land of anyone who touches Israel.
If God really did leave an additional code in the temple in Jerusalem, (and in his universe as Newton and Flynn suggest), who could possibly be on the radar?  Let’s research who would be in the “distance=time” radius for this year, 2016 or 5776/5777 in the Hebrew Civic calendar.
 
I began with a  simple formula.
(Based on Flynn Mathematics, featured in Temple at the Center of Time)
 
2016-Gregorian calendar = 5776-Hebrew Civic calendar
5776-(nautical miles) = 6646.902 (statute miles)  (If (1) statute mi.= .868976 in naut. mi)
 
Next, I pulled up a radius map maker (in 2D) on http://www.mapdevelopers.com, then measured out 6646.902 statute miles from the Temple Mount designation on Google Maps.
(
Please keep in mind that 2016, runs through both 5776 and 5777 in the Hebrew Civic Calendar.  Also important to note: 2017 is 5776 and 5777 on the Creation Calendar.)

 
The above picture is a two dimensional radius map, of 6646.902 statute miles, or 5776 nautical miles from The Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Israel.  Most people can only picture a radius map in 3D….like on a globe.  Imagine taking a piece of string and tacking one end to Jerusalem.  If you move it in a circle, that is a radius around the center object.  In a 2D map, it is quite different.  The radius line seems to warp into a wave like direction when measured out in 6646.902 statute miles.

Where does this warped, wavy radius line go?
 
Would you believe that this “line” crosses the New Madrid Fault Line Area at Memphis, Tennessee, up to the north of Yellowstone, over the Cascadia Subduction Zone, and then wraps down the western edge of the “Ring of Fire” in the Pacific Ocean!!!!!  These are all areas of huge geological concern right now.  Every day, new reports are coming out on how geologists are warning of overdue earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.  A simple Google search will display thousands of articles and news clips.
I was absolutely astounded that our year, measured out in nautical miles, and then converted to statute miles (to plug into the radius map) crossed ALL these areas of concern!!!  I know that many a prophet, including Pastor David Wilkerson, and Dr. Perry Stone, have had some very interesting visions and dreams that God has given them about America’s future.  I can’t help but wonder, are these visions and dreams all tied into the same event, or possibly  a group of events happening in rapid succession?
 

The Cracking Montana to Florida Lineament/Missouri Gravity Low
 
How could America potentially split on this radius line measured out from the Temple Mount?  Simple…The Montana to Florida Lineament/Missouri Gravity Low.  A gigantic crack, extending approximately 1,700 miles long, over 90 miles across that extends deep into the Earth’s crust.
 

Diagram above is borrowed from www.standeyo.com. It is strikingly similar to the radius maps from the Temple Mount.
 
In an article by Mark Prigg For Dailymail.com, published on: 4 May 2016, it states:
“Researchers have been baffled, believing the areas should be relatively quiet in terms of seismic activity, as it is located in the interior of the North American Plate, far away from plate boundaries where earthquakes usually occur.
Now, they believe the quakes could be caused by pieces of the Earth’s mantle breaking off and sinking into the planet.”
“A new study found pieces of the mantle under this region have been periodically breaking off and sinking down into the Earth.
This thins and weakens the remaining plate, making it more prone to slipping that causes earthquakes.
The study authors conclude this process is ongoing and likely to produce more earthquakes in the future.”

So the area mentioned in an article, published in the  “Journal of Geophysical Research-Solid Earth, a journal of the American Geophysical Union,” is a sizable chunk of the Montana to Florida Lineament/Missouri Gravity Low.
I can’t even fathom what would happen, if the Montana to Florida Lineament/Missouri Gravity Low cracked open one day, as a result of the Earth’s mantle sloughing off into molten lava.  Could this potentially cause the New Madrid Fault line, the Yellowstone Caldera, and the Cascadia Subduction Zone/Juan De Fuca to all react in a rapid succession of events?

The Importance of the Number 2520
 
With respect to the number 2520, it seems to be one of God’s standards of measurement of the physical world, and maybe even the metaphysical world as well.  Flynn states in his book, Temple at the center of Time:
“With respect to Newton’s intention of providing direction for the future revealing prophecy, leaving out such an integral point stands in bold relief.  He may have intended it as a clue to deciphering the underlying meaning of Chronology. In fact, the number 2520 is the key to Newton’s hidden prophetical direction, and the metaphysical design of prophecy and time itself,”….”Newton ‘s study of its measurements in his Chronology underscored his belief that God somehow inserted this metaphysical property within the geometry of the Temple of Jerusalem.”…”Newton also held the divine dimensions within the Temple of Solomon equal with the physical order of God’s creation.”…”Sha’ar Ha-Heshek of Yohanan Alemanno, which described the study of the wisdom of Solomon and its deposit in the temple of Jerusalem…described the temple as a microcosm of heaven in its design and rituals.”

Reoccurring Numbers-
2520, a unifying constant [that] links the creation of God to His influence within creation.
Examples:
Earth Measurement-7 x 360 (degrees around the earth)= 2520 x 22/7= 7920   Earth’s mean diameter in miles
Moon Measurement– 2520-360= 2160  (our moon’s mean diameter)
Earth to Moon Measurement– at apogee, the moons distance is 252,000 statute miles from Earth. (2520 x 100 = 252,000)
Solar Week– 360 degree (rotation in a day) x 7 days = 2520
The Great Tribulation- Will be 360 days x 7 years = 2520
The March around Jericho–  First 6 days= 6  x 360 degrees = 2160 (moon’s mean diameter, Last day= 7 x 360 degrees= 2520
Sacred Cubit=  25.20 standard inches
Ark of the Covenant, Tabernacle of Exodus, and Solomon Temple= all designed with the sacred cubit as its measurement standard. (as commanded in Deuteronomy 25;14)  (Interesting to note that Exodus 25:20 speaks of the Cherubim on the Ark, and how they are outstretched over the mercy seat.)
Release from Babylonian Captivity to Rebirth of Isreal in 1948– From when Cyrus released the Israelites from Babylon in 538 BC to 1948 AD, when Israel became a nation again, was 2,486 years.  2,486 x 365 = 907,390 / 360 = 2520
Mt. Nebo, (where Moses was shown the Promised Land), to Temple Mount- 25.20 nautical miles
2,520 also happens to be the mathematical equation God left on the wall of Belshazzar in ancient Babylon.
“The gerah was the smallest portion of the weight used in Babylonian commerce at that time.  Mene (1,000 gerahs), Mene (1,000 gerahs), Tekel (20 gerahs), and Peres to divide the Mene (500 gerahs) equals 2520.” -David Flynn, Temple at the Center of Time.
Flynn also states, “Because the “Writing on the Wall’ had the value of 2,520, and occurred in 539 BC, both numbers should relate some way with the pattern of time and prophecy.”
This means that whatever Date/Time relationship that may exist in the future, should have the corresponding “2520” prophetic math as its witness.
 
2016 (current year, potential “fall”) – 1776 (America’s founding year)= 240
240 x 7  ( “7” is God’s number of completion)= 1680
If we take 1680, and cut it into 2 parts of the 3 equal parts needed for the next answer, (remember God likes the number “3”), we get 840
840 + 840+ 840=  2520– Our Mathematical Witness
 
So when people say that “the writing is on the wall” for America because of its transgressions, they may not actually be wrong.  It also makes me question whether or not there is a name parallel here also.  Could America possibly be “Mystery Babylon” referenced in Revelation Chapter 14?
“And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” -Revelation 14:8

Fine Tuning the Radius Map
 
Interestingly enough, while looking at some of Gil Broussard’s charts on Planet 7x, or what others call the 9th planet or Nibiru, he places the Yeshua (Jesus) Sacrifice at 28 AD.  In my curiosity, I decided to plug those numbers into the radius map.
 
Here’s the math, if you’d like to go check it out for yourself.
 
28 AD= 3778 (The corresponding Jewish calendar year)  Christ’s/ Yeshua’s year of death, resurrection and ascension
5776= (Current year of 2016) – 28 (Year of Yeshua’s Sacrifice)= 5748
5748= Our new nautical mile reference point
5748 (used as nautical mile) = 6614.68 (statute miles from Temple Mount)
6614.68= NEW statute mile reference point.  This is the number you then would place in the distance field in the http://www.mapdevelopers.com radius map.

When I drew up the radius map with this new measurement of 6614.68 statute miles from the Temple Mount, it landed me in the general area as before.  Yup……. still in the New Madrid Fault Line Area, north of Yellowstone, Cascadia Subduction Zone/ Juan De Fuca and the western edge of the “Ring of Fire.”  Instead of being roughly 20 miles to the south of Memphis, TN;  the line cuts directly through Memphis, and several other biblical names.

 

Town/ landmark names on the “line”
 
This new line,  when examined up close, goes through some interesting town names and landmarks:
Jericho, AR
Egypt, AR
Memphis, TN
Olive Branch, MS
Tippah River in Mississippi-  (Tippah is a Chickasaw word for “cut off”)
Bethlehem, MS
Friendship, MS– (Could there be a connection with the friendship of Israel and the U.S, and the dividing line?)
Township of Zion, MS
Byhalia, MS– (This one I find most intriguing.  This town’s translation literally means “standing white oaks” in Choctaw.  The Bible speaks about oaks a few times.  These oaks are located in Bashan……Bashan is now the Golan Heights.  The same area President Obama is so feverishly trying to divide!!!
Pastor Paul Begley of Indiana explains this very well and why it is so dangerous to divide Israel.  Here’s the link:  https://youtu.be/e0Dg05P1P40

The purple stars indicate a town or landmark on the line,  yellow stars are towns with intriguing names, (we will address those on a later post).

(The picture above is the line that goes through Bethlehem, MS.)

Following the Line
 
When you follow the edge of the new “line” (6614.68) to the northwest, it crosses directly above Yellowstone National Park.  Yup, really close to a REALLY BIG caldera.

The center of the radius in the above picture, is where the northern most part of the caldera in Yellowstone is assumed to be. This shows a distance of approximately 115 miles, from the closest part of the caldera to the 6614.68 radius line, from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Israel.
The “line” cuts through British Columbia, near Vancouver, crossing over the Cascadian Subduction Zone and then wrapping around the “Ring of Fire.”  All these areas mentioned are of great concern to many scientists and geologists, as there has been a huge uptick in volcanism and earthquakes this year.  It’s rather bizarre that these areas of concern are all in close proximity to this 6614.68 statute mile line from the Temple Mount.

Countries, other than America, on the potentially prophetic radius line
 
Dragging along the line of the two dimensional map, one would probably assume that there are many countries that are crossed.  Surprisingly, there are just a few.
1 USA– (Relations with Israel are deteriorating rapidly)
2 Venezuela– (President Chavez has been hostile to Israel since the 2006 Israel-Lebanon Conflict, and is now going through extreme economic turmoil and famine) Please see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel%E2%80%93Venezuela_relations
3 Brazil-(Becoming increasingly unfriendly with Israel, since it had recalled its ambassador to Tel Aviv in July of 2014. Brazil is also heavily infested with Zika).  Please see:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazil%E2%80%93Israel_relations
4 Canada-(Prime Minister Trudeau is in favor of a two state solution)
5 Micronesia/Yap Islands-(Micronesia has a solid track record of voting for Israel, with regard to UN resolutions.)  Please see:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel%E2%80%93Federated_States_of_Micronesia_relations
6 West Papua- (Providence of Indonesia, although they do trade with Israel, they side with Arab Countries.  In 2014, a BBC World Service Poll showed that only 7% of Indonesians had a positive view on Israel’s world influence.)See: http://downloads.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/country-rating-poll.pdf
7. Maluku Island-(Religious and territorial conflicts between Muslims and Christians there)
8. Timor-Leste– (Predominantly “Christian” nation, with over 96 % professing to be Catholic.) Please see:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Timor
9. Australia
10 Haiti
11. Cuba
 
In closing of my first post, I do not necessarily believe that all countries listed above are going to see their kingdoms fall as Babylon did.  However, I do believe that they could, the choice is up to them. God gives us free will, but He is also fully aware of His divine appointments.  In the book of Joel, God clearly warns what will happen to those who divide His land–Israel.  God can easily divide our land.  Many men and women of God are saying this.
I also would like you to note, this “potentially prophetic, Time=Distance Line” phenomenon, is extremely dangerous for many years to come, as it only moves southwest; (1) nautical mile or (1.1508) statute miles a year.  Any year, with in our lifetimes, whether it be 5776, 5777,… 5796 etc.,  is very dangerous if our nation’s leaders attempt to divide any part of Israel.
I personally believe that Hurricane Katrina was a harbinger of what is to come to America, if it divides Israel.  This “time=distance line” that I have shown you also works out for Katrina.  The line of 2005 goes directly below Ft. Lauderdale,  FL; the precise location Katrina first hit U.S. shores on its predetermined path of destruction.  For more information on this event and its relation to the “time=distance line,”  see: https://prophetictimelines.wordpress.com/2016/05/18/new-evidence-hurricane-katrina-gods-judgment-0n-america/

Obama has been working with the United Nations for the last few weeks to divide the Golan Heights and Jerusalem.  In my humble opinion, the radius maps show what will happen to America, if Obama divides Israel.
PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF ISRAEL!  MAY AMERICA TURN AWAY FROM HER EVIL AND WICKED WAYS.
2 Chronicles 7:14-  If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land
Update: 1/30/2017:  On Dec. 23, 2016, the UN passed Resolution 2334.  President Obama, abstained from voting, effectually turning America’s back on Israel.  Although it is not yet fully enforced, it was a land divide.

The Parashah for this week 16-22 July 2017 is a “Double Reading”:

I. Matot—“Tribes”

TORAH: Numbers 30:1—32:42

Numbers 30. Vows and oaths to the LORD are extremely serious transactions in God’s eyes; such words, coming out of the mouth of a person and binding his or her very soul, must be taken seriously and honoured by all humankind who are made in God’s own image (vss. 2, 6). In Ancient Israel, vows and oaths were binding absolutely on all males (30:2). Yet within the authority structure God had set up, there were certain circumstances in which the positioning of a human father or husband could (as with the divine Father/Husband of which they are a reflection) allow release of a special grace to cover the guilt of a young daughter living at home, or of a wife (the protection and oversight of both for which God held the father or husband ultimately responsible). Thus, if a father, on the day he heard of a vow his daughter had made deemed it unwise, he could overrule her vow and the LORD would forgive her (30:5). Similarly, on the day a husband became aware of a vow made by his wife, he might, if he believed it unwise, choose to “overrule” (Hebrew verb: lehani) and “make void” (Hebrew verb: lehaphir) the vow which she had made –“and what she uttered with her lips, by which she bound her soul, and the LORD will forgive her.”

[It is interesting that both of these Hebrew verbs are used in Psalm 33:10, “The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing (Hebrew: lehaphir); He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect” (Hebrew: lehani). Here also, faulty counsel is cancelled out by a greater authority in an ultimate mercy.]

*Numbers 30:15. “But if he does make them void after he has heard them, then he shall bear her iniquity”. In a holy sanctuary built and maintained by fallen man, those of the House of Levi were called to “bear the iniquity” of that sanctuary. (Numbers 18:1, 23), while Aaron and his descendants would “bear the iniquity” of his priesthood. There was a special grace given to those in these positions—but if the rest of the Israelites came near to the tabernacle of meeting, they would “bear their sin and die.” Likewise, it appears here that a measure of this same grace was given to a man in his role as “priest” or “Levite” over his home. Ultimately, just as one goat was slain for sin on the Day of Atonement, but another was necessary to be taken into the wilderness to “bear on itself all their iniquities…” (Leviticus 16:22), so would come Another who not only would offer Himself up to die as a sacrifice for sin—but as the Lamb of God, also would bear away the sin of the world (John 1:29).

*Numbers 31:1-2. “And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: ‘Take vengeance on the Midianites for the children of Israel. Afterward you shall be gathered to your people.”

It is important in reading the grim even shocking events of the first half of this chapter, to realize Who had issued the order. In Psalm 94:1 the LORD (YHVH) is twice called El-Nekamot—literally, “God of all Vengeance”. Isaiah 61:2 speaks of the Spirit’s anointing One to proclaim “the day of the vengeance of our God” (as well as to “comfort all who mourn”). II Thessalonians 1:8 prophecies a Day when Yeshua will be revealed from Heaven with mighty angels “in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord, Yeshua the Messiah.” Romans 12:17-20 cautions against believers taking their own revenge for perceived offenses, and quotes Deuteronomy 32:35, “‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the YHVH”. Hebrews 10:30 also quotes this same verse from the Torah as relevant to those who “know Him” today. Vengeance is always His and not ours. Yet Psalm 149:7 makes clear that “Saints” will on occasion be used to “execute [His] vengeance on the nations.”

It is obviously this, the righteous vengeance of God, which is being released through His people in Numbers 31. “It is appointed for [all] men to die once…” (Hebrews 9:27). The time was at hand for these Midianites, including the women who had “caused the children of Israel (even as they were poised to cross into the Promised Land) to trespass against the LORD” (Numbers 31:1).

II. Massei—“Journeys of…”

TORAH: Numbers 33:1—36:13

CHAPTER 33

“Now at the end of the long chain of Wilderness stories that began in Exodus, as the Israelites are poised to cross the Jordan into the land of Canaan, we get a grand recapitulation of the whole narrative in the form of an itinerary of all the “way stations” in the Wilderness march” (Alter, Robert: The Five Books of Moses, W.W.Norton & Co: New York, London, 2004 (p. 852, n 1).

*Numbers 33:1. “These are the journeys of the children of Israel, who went out of the land of Egypt by their armies under the hand of Moses and Aaron. (Emphases ours)

As noted when this ‘going forth’ from Egypt was first recorded (Exodus 12:41, 51; 13:18), although the Children of Israel may not yet have been fully aware that they were an “army” (with each member assigned his/her positioning in its arraying), YHVH Tz’vaot, Elohei Ma’arkhot Yisrael (“Yehovah of Armies, God of the Arraying of Israel”—I Samuel 17:45) was well aware! When people are brought out of the slave-house of sin into the Kingdom of Heaven, they will soon discover that they are in a war—but also that they each have a place especially reserved in the army of the Captain of the Hosts of the LORD!

*Numbers 33:2. “And Moses wrote down their departure points for their journeying by the word of the LORD, and these are their journeying by their departure points” (Robert Alter, trans).

“Departure points” (Hebrew: motz’a) is also sometimes translated into English as “starting points” or “places of origin”. All have validity, albeit resulting in slightly different perspectives. In fact, this word is related to that used of God in the traditional Hebrew blessing over meals, “Ha’motzi lechem min haAretz”—“Who brings forth bread from the earth”. So the passage might even be interpreted to read, “Moses wrote down those places from which they were brought forth for their journey”. An old Jewish proverb goes something like this, “You can’t know where you’re going ‘til you know where you came from.” It was important that the Hebrews keep a record of these starting/departure points from which, in the timings of the LORD, they had been continually drawn forth—back into the path of their journeying (Numbers 9:18).

*Numbers 36:7. “And an estate of the Israelites shall not turn round from tribe to tribe, but the Israelites shall cling each man to the estate of the tribe of his fathers” (Robert Alter, trans.).

“Cling” comes from the same Hebrew word used in Genesis 2:24 regarding a man and his wife. It was this charge as related to inherited land which likely fueled Naboth’s response to Ahab in I Kings 21:3, “YHVH Forbid! That I should give the inheritance of my fathers to you!”

It is important to pray for Israelis returning to the Land of their Fathers—that they will receive from the Lord a fierce, strong zeal after that land, a holy jealousy in valuing this inheritance passed down from the Fathers, who received it as an eternal Covenantfrom the God who chose them and met with them there!
*After Numbers 36:13:

KhaZAK! KhaZAK! V’Nit’khaZEK!—“Be Strong! Be Strong! And we Shall Become Stronger!!

It is traditional to chant this admonishment after reaching the end of each of the Five Books of Moses.

HAFTARAH (“Haftarah of Affliction/Admonition 2): Jeremiah 2:4-28; 3:4; 4:1-2

During the three-week period “between the straits” (the 17th of Tammuz through the 9th of Av) the usual Haftarah portions are replaced by special “Haftarah’s of Affliction/Admonition”), calling Israel to sober contemplation of her sin and her deserving of severe judgment—and of the Love of her God still drawing her to repent and return to Him.

*Jeremiah 2:13. “For my people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the Source of living water, and they have hewed themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.”

*Jeremiah 3:4 [Read in Ashkenazy Synagogues]: “Will you not from this time cry to Me, ‘My Father, You are the guide of my youth?’”

*Jeremiah 4:1-2 [Read in Sephardic Jewish Synagogues]: “ ‘If you will return, O Israel,’ declares the LORD, ‘then you should return to me. And if you will put away your detested things from My presence, and will not waver, and you will swear ‘As the LORD lives’ in truth, in justice and in righteousness; then the nations will bless themselves in Him, and in Him they will glory.”

It has always been the divine plan that as Israel comes into a right relationship with her God repercussions will be felt throughout the world—the nations will come into a new revelation of His Glory, and “bless themselves in Him!”

[The Parashah for next week 23-29 July 2017 is called Dvarim—“Words…”. TORAH: Deuteronomy 1:1—3:22; HAFTARAH: Jeremiah 8:13—9:23.]

In A Nutshell

In this portion Moses alerts the heads of the tribes about the commandments connected to the making and untying of vows. The portion also speaks of Pinhas, who leads Israel into a war with Midian and emerges triumphant. Following the war, the text details the division of the spoils (some of which are dedicated to the Creator) as well as the commandments to make the Kelim Kosher, detailing the process of dipping and immersing them in boiling water.

At the end of the portion, the tribes of Gad and Reuben ask to stay on the Eastern bank of the Jordan River because of its good soil for their voluminous cattle herds. They infuriate Moses because he thinks they are seeking to avoid the war for the conquest of the land. In the end they commit to participating in the war and Moses grants their wish for a lot outside the land of Israel.

Commentary
Kabbalists attain the forces and discernments of the spiritual world. These are the forces that operate and manage our world, including the still, vegetative, animate, and human, each of which has a force that runs it. This is why it is impossible to ask anything of people who are not Kabbalists, as they have no free choice, as it is written, “They are all as beasts (animals).” When we read a story in the Torah that seems to be happening in this world, we need to understand that its roots are in the spiritual world, in the network of forces that governs the world.

Today we already feel and understand that we are approaching the network of the forces of the integral nature, which closes in on us and compels us to behave accordingly. It is the appearance of Godliness, which is gradually nearing us.

We see that we can no longer manage the world. Each day we are feeling more and more clearly that nothing in the world depends on us. We are losing our ability to manage the world because we can no longer act in life using our egos.

Kabbalists discovered the upper network and told us how it manifests on the upper level. They did so using words and stories of this world, our world, because everything that exists in the upper one descends to the lower one.

During the forty years in the desert, and even before, Moses wrote his five books, the Pentateuch. Through his attainment, Moses wrote part of the Pentateuch about the times preceding his own. He wrote it in the language of the branches, in the connections between upper and lower. Moses wrote about everything that takes place in the upper world and how the forces are managed. He spoke of them as results, as “marionettes” that move about our world and change.

This is why it is pointless trying to deal with this world; it is utterly governed; there is nothing in it of its own. To know everything, we need to rise to the upper degree, the place where decisions are made, where forces operate and influence our world.

We cannot change anything in this world, and we are well aware of it. Yet, there is one way by which we can change. If that happens, a person can be in bestowal and love according to one’s nearing to the forces in one’s nature. In this way one can change one’s fate here in this world.

In fact, only by changing ourselves can we achieve, “I have created the evil inclination, I have created for it the Torah as a spice,” because “The light in it reforms them.” Only through the light that we draw from the study of the wisdom of Kabbalah can we change ourselves and rise to the upper degree. From that upper degree we can influence the decisions and the mechanism that operate our world. This is why Moses turned to the heads of the tribes and explained to them about untying the vows, about going against Midian, etc.

We need to imagine man as a small world, and everything that happens in the world as happening within. Indeed, within us are Moses and the entire structure called “the people of Israel,” with its priests, Levites, and Israel, being the three lines that comprise our soul. There are also the nations of the world within us, the Midianites, Pharaoh, and everything else that the Torah narrates.

When we discover ourselves and detect within us all those forces and qualities, we perceive the Torah as an instruction. Accordingly, we act to change and adapt ourselves from a person in this world to a higher, spiritual human, aware of the spiritual world, at the spiritual degree known as Matot (tribes).

This is a very high degree, working out of Hesed, the highest Sefira (singular of Sefirot) of the structure of the soul. Out of the ten Sefirot, Keter, Hochma, and Bina are the top Sefirot. They are above our attainment and are the ones that manage us. We approach them through our inner qualities, through arranging them properly as Hesed, Gevura, Tifferet, Netzah, Hod, Yesod, and Malchut, which are the seven remaining Sefirot.

We correct these seven Sefirot repeatedly on each degree, and they are called “the seven days of the week.” Hesed, Gevura, Tifferet, Netzah, Hod, and Yesod correspond to the weekdays, and Malchut corresponds to the Sabbath. By correcting them we go through the weeks in a circle that eventually brings us to Keter, Hochma and Bina, the top three Sefirot, meaning to the end of correction.

Each week in the year has its Torah portion or portions. These are degrees by which we gradually elevate ourselves to the top degree, by opening up to our interior. As we do that, we find the forces within us and act alongside them.

The quality of Moses in us turns to the heads of the tribes in us, according to the division of the soul into twelve tribes, the tribes he arranged correctly while working with the growing ego from a state called “reception of the Torah” to a state called “entrance to the land of Israel.” The process one undergoes between the states is called “the forty years in the desert.” The desert represents our need to sort out the desires within us and correct them from reception for ourselves into the altruistic form of bestowal, to the right approach toward others, which can be summed up in the maxim, “That which you hate, do not do to your friend.” On the degree of “tribes,” one scrutinizes one’s qualities and how to work with the will to receive.

At first, a person can scrutinize the vows. Vows are states and conditions by which one attains a higher degree. The vows indicate the limitation one can take upon oneself and not fail. However, when one cannot persist with them, it is possible to rid oneself from them much like the untying of vows before Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement).

There are fundamental laws in spirituality that concern man and the scrutiny that takes place within—to what extent one can ask for correction for oneself and work with the force that corrects. Following these preparations, a person becomes aware of one’s ability to work with one’s ego on the level of Midian. Such a person works with the force known as Pinhas, which is the next stage of the force of Moses.

This is when one can truly go to war. A person goes against one’s ego in order to conquer it and works with part of it in order to bestow. We ascend to a spiritual degree by correcting the evil inclination into a good inclination. There is no other substance but our own—the will to receive.

First, it comes with only the intention to receive. At that point it is called “the evil inclination” because it prevents itself from participating with others. When it turns into the good inclination, it connects to everyone. This means that a person has succeeded in the war and has conquered the ego.

Once a person has conquered one’s ego, he gives spoils to the tribes, the priest, the Levite, Israel, the women, and the children. He gives spoils from everything he could take from the still, vegetative, animate, and the speaking degree (human). The Torah details what we must do with the masculine part, which is the right side of the Klipa (shell/peel), and what we need to do with the feminine part, the left side of the Klipa.

On Yom Kippur there is a custom to untie vows. Why then is there a need for vows in the first place?

We cannot grow without a vow. When approaching a higher degree, we have to annul ourselves before the upper one because we have not yet reached that degree and therefore cannot accurately evaluate it. As we study we constantly correct and “update” ourselves.”

There are also complementary actions such as the Second Passover where if we did not prepare ourselves for the correction known as Passover, where we “pass over” the ego, we can come to it a month later.

This sounds like a negotiation. We make vows so we can complete the work later, that if we do something we will receive so and so.

No, there is no such thing. It is not how spirituality works. A person does everything honestly until one discovers that it is impossible to keep moving forward, or that the conditions have changed. We are in a system of interconnected souls that supports us when we fall. We learn about our being in an integral system from Moses, who did nothing wrong except for the striking of the rock, yet the whole nation suffered because of it.

There was only one Moses, but we are just beginners.

There is nothing to say about this world. Here we are nothing more than outcomes of the spiritual world. If we can influence the spiritual world through the study of Kabbalah we will change this world, as well. If we do not, we will change nothing.

In fact, we can impact the spiritual world just by aspiring to ascend to spirituality, and this will impact this world favorably. If we have no ability or desire to change our spiritual situation even if we can, our world will still advance, but on a path of suffering.

How can we change our world if it is only a world of results and we are being operated on, without any free choice?

As soon as we begin to ascend toward the spiritual world, we begin to change this world. Nothing in this world changes it but the forces that influence it from above. Therefore, our only choice in this world is to rise above it.

Is this done by connecting and uniting with others?

Yes, through unity with others.

Will we improve our financial situation, too, by studying Kabbalah?

Everything will change. All the outcomes in this world depend only on the connections between us. There is nothing truly worth doing but securing our sustenance, and dedicating the rest of the time to spiritual ascension. This, in turn, will change everything.

Is the correction personal or does it affect everyone?

The correction is both personal and general, but today it is primarily general.

Why is it so hard to understand it even though it sounds so simple?

We are built according to our individualistic egos. We view the world egotistically. And precisely because of it, today the systems of economy and education are becoming dysfunctional. We cannot succeed anymore because everything is broken and scattered. Throughout history we have become used to advancing using our egos, by trying to profit and benefit ourselves the most. But today these egotistical, linear systems have stopped functioning. We are moving into systems that are round, integral, connected.
Is the reciprocal impact sensed immediately?

Yes, people will feel more important, more successful, and even stronger than the government. Governments act egotistically, like a linear arrow. Conversely, the connections between people are circular. Today we are in a global mechanism in a nature that is integral and global. As a result, we cannot continue to advance egotistically, linearly, as before. Now we have to learn how to ascend, how to increase the aim to connect “as one man with one heart,” because only through unity can we change the way things are.

Matot (Tribes)

“‘And you who cleave unto the Lord your God are alive every one of you this day.’ What is the reason? It is because the soul of Israel comes from the spirit of the living God. ‘For the spirit before Me will enwrap.’ ‘Before Me,’ meaning before Divinity, from ZA, the living God.”

Zohar for All, Matot (Tribes), item 5

What is the spoil?

The spoil is a result of man’s work with the evil inclination. In this war, a person turns the evil inclination into good inclination using the light that reforms. As a result, a person receives light through that inclination. The light that fills a person—the attainment, that sublime sensation—is a great possession. This is the spoil.

The division of the spoil refers to how one divides the light among all of one’s parts, all of one’s desires and qualities. It denotes how one operates that division mechanism, who receives more, and who receives less.

This portion seems to discuss the root of the conduct of making utensils kosher.
The root of the matter is in our Kelim (vessels), the will to receive. This is where we receive the light. The light may appear in our desires on condition that they are not working only in order to receive, but also in order to bestow—to share them with others. When we connect ourselves to others in this way, the light appears in us. It follows that all our corrections are really qualifications of our Kelim, making them kosher.

Put differently, we need to qualify our will to receive so it aims to bestow, so it is connected to others. The water, which represents Hesed, qualifies the Kelim. If we need to correct a metal Kli (singular of Kelim), meaning make it kosher, it requires a deeper correction. It has to be passed through fire, representing Gevura. A metal Kli represents a desire that was used egotistically and that must be corrected and cleaned more powerfully through “whitening” (heating to the point where the metal becomes white), Mikveh Kelim (a tub used for ritual immersion of utensils), and Hagaalah (dipping in boiling water).

Correcting our Kelim is all that we have in the wisdom of Kabbalah. The correction of the Kelim takes place once a person has acquired them and has shifted them from the aim to receive into the aim to bestow, having conquered one’s desires. This is not only about correcting Kelim in the sense of utensils, or dishes, but about correcting the Kelim when one makes offerings.

The offering is a Kli on the animate level. One “kills” one’s will to receive, meaning the manner in which the will to receive was used before, egotistically, and brings it as an offering (Korban), from the word Hitkarvut (nearing), toward bestowal, in favor of others. Only then can one bestow love upon others using that same will to receive, which then becomes holy.

This is not the only Torah portion where there are wars and struggles.

We are always at war, always struggling, until we reach the end of correction.

If a person has already attained a certain degree and enjoys the light in it, why should one relinquish it?

Because that person would want to pass it on to others.

But that person still has no desire to pass the light to others.

Wanting to pass it on is a precondition for receiving the light.

You mean, in order to receive the light, you first need to want to give it away?

Of course. We already want to receive it because we heard it is good. But we will not receive it until we desire to share it with others. Our world mandates that we become connected because we are approaching the end of the correction process.

Once a person has tasted the light, what would stop one from wanting it all the time?

We advance “on two legs.” One receives Kelim, corrects them, fills them with light, shares them with everyone, and thus does a very good deed, a Mitzva (good deed/commandment). Using the will to receive in favor of others is called a Mitzva. Once a Mitzva is done, another part of the person’s ego that was hidden inside rises and appears.

Eventually, the entire “Egypt” of a person appears, and one is now immersed in an ego that is spreading over the good. The bad suddenly becomes dominant over the good. When that happens a person becomes wicked, and the struggle begins anew: the previous degree disappears inside, “drowning” in the bad.

When Israel enter Canaan and conquer it, there is the Eastern side of the Jordan river. Gad and Reuben wanted that lot. Why did Moses suddenly object to their dwelling on the Eastern bank of the Jordan?

Our will to receive is in the three worlds Beria, Yetzira, and Assiya. There is also the Temple, Jerusalem, Mount Moriah, and the rest of the degrees: The land of Israel, around which is the Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and Babylon. Additionally, there are the rest of the lands in the world, but they are not considered as having anything meaningful.

The Eastern bank of the Jordan is the first boundary outside the land of Israel, and therefore does not have the same level of sanctity as the land of Israel itself. This is why Moses, the force that manages all the corrections within us, opposes the children of Israel’s presence there. All the children of Israel must first be inside the land of Israel, and only afterward are there the conquests of David, which include Lebanon, Syria, and Babylon, from the Niles to the Euphrates.

The Mystic Jewish Rabbi Predicts Catastrophic Mega Coastal Cities Inundated,Air And Sea Crashes and YHVH Protects IS-RA-EL

Mystic Jewish Rabbi continues his Catastrophic Predictions; Mega Coastal Cities Inundated, Air and Sea Crashes, yet HaShem protects IsraelMega Catastrophes


The Mega-Cities of the World will be Destroyed in the Final Judgment 

The famed mystic Rabbi, Ha Rav Nir Ben Artzi during the month of March (2017 in the first year of the Era of the Messiah) began to focus his global messianic predictions around the world. As reported by Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz with Breaking Israel News, he noted of great interest how Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi’s past predictions continue to come true as prophesied. 

In a recent Jewish synagogue sermon Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi unleased a litany of future and potential disasters that include not only earthquakes, major oceanic and tsunami storms, but also recent international plane crashes whose causal destruction came as stellar EMP bolides of HaShem’s divine judgement in response to global political events. 

These have enhanced the notable and spiritual intent of the Divine plus includes powerful relevance to our present prophetic times. As Rabbi Nir Ben Arzi warned while elaborating with intense detail about the current messianic “birth pangs”, does give us insight in the cause and effect intent of Divine judgment upon Planet Earth and the 70 nations of the earth. As the Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi spoke: 

Ha Rav Nir Ben Artzi – “The times will continue to be difficult and the judgements will continue to grow stronger: floods, volcanic eruptions, fires and heat, evil spirits, storms and earthquakes. Buildings will disappear into the ground – the ground will open and swallow places in the world. Planes will collide and get lost, ships will get lost and sink.”


Ha Rav Nir Ben Artzi (Facebook) 

“The times will continue to be difficult and the judgements will continue to grow stronger: floods, volcanic eruptions, fires and heat, evil spirits, storms and earthquakes. Buildings will disappear into the ground – the ground will open and swallow places in the world. Planes will collide and get lost, ships will get lost and sink.”

This end of days scenario suddenly erupted in March, 2016, when seven major earthquakes struck Japan and Ecuador and crashed into both coasts of the Pacific within 96 hours. 

To many of the interpreting seismologists, this is only the beginning of a long range global process of evolutionary development. The rabbis and the believers of the rabbinic faith whether Jews, Lost Ten Israelites or believing Noahides, we are instead watching carefully the development of the global messianic process of recreating a new Gan Eden that will first be revealed to begin on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. 

As the Chazal, the Sages of Judah have long proclaimed; In the end days when the Era of Metatron, will be revealed as HaShem’s Melekh HaMaschiach (King Messiah) He will be known as the Maschiach ben David (Messiah son of David. At that time:

The Temple Mount will expand to include the whole State of Israel.

The Land of Israel will then expand to include the whole Middle East from the Nile to the Euphrates.

The Middle East will expand to include the entire Planet Earth.

The Rabbis and people of faith will then fully recognize this as part of the Universal Messianic process with the Creation of the “Commonwealth of Israel.” 

The Rabbis and the people of the faith will then recognize that what we have been beholding in front of our eyes has been the merging of the two Messianic Mega-Trends; called the Maschiach ben Yosef (Messiah son of Joseph) and the Maschiach ben David (Messiah son of David)  

It was in the summer 2016 that earth scientists began to see the remodeling of Planet Earth. Over 500 people were killed when a 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit Ecuador. 1,700 people remained missing, over 4,000 are injured, and thousands more are wandering homeless.   

Within 94 hours, a 7.3-magnitude quake hit Japan’s southern island hour later, while over 600 smaller tremors continued to shake the survivors. The death toll in Japan stands at 47 killed, more than 1,000 injured, 8 missing, and over 100,000 left homeless. 

Other less-deadly earthquakes were felt around the world. Many scientists are convinced that this recent epidemic of earthquakes is just a prelude to increased seismic activity around the globe in unprecedented magnitudes. 

University of Colorado seismologist Roger Bilham told the Express, “The current conditions might trigger at least four earthquakes greater than 8.0 in magnitude. And if they delay, the strain accumulated during the centuries provokes more catastrophic mega-earthquakes.” 

Experts from India’s Ministry of Home Affairs warned in January that yet another major quake, equal or larger than the last disaster, can be expected in the region. 

Seismologists at Tokyo University estimate there is a 98 percent chance that in the next 30 years Japan will be hit by another major earthquake of catastrophic proportions. Earlier in 2011 a 9.0-magnitude quake killed over 20,000 people, but its destructive effects didn’t end at mere earth-shifting. 

Japan’s Fukushima power plant was designed to withstand earthquakes, but a meltdown occurred when the ensuing tsunami washed away generators powering the emergency cooling, leaking large amounts of radioactive material into the atmosphere. 

This apocalyptic scenario could easily be repeated with devastating results in many developed countries, including the US. Nuclear power plants in California, New York, Washington State, and Arkansas are situated near major fault lines. Other plants in Maine, Pennsylvania, and Virginia have raised concern of their earthquake survivability with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission but were deemed within acceptable standards.

Especially at risk is the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant in California, which is situated directly on the ocean, making it very vulnerable to tsunamis. It sits in an earthquake red zone, in close vicinity to four active fault lines, one lying only 2,000 feet away from the plant’s two nuclear reactors.


The Diablo Nuclear Power Plant near Sacramento, California

David Freeman, a former general manager of the Sacramento Municipal Utility District, called the Diablo Nuclear plant “a disaster waiting to happen.” 

The facts exist that tsunamis are far more devastating than the earthquakes that trigger them. In 2004, the Banda Aceh earthquake, barely felt on land, created a tsunami in the Indian Ocean that killed about 250,000 people in Sumatra and Indonesia. 

A recent study by seismologists at the University of California suggests that Southern California is at greater risk of tsunamis than previously thought. A 7.0-magnitude earthquake in the Ventura Basin Fault could generate a tsunami that would penetrate up to two kilometers inland in less than half an hour, devastating a heavily populated area.

It was Rabbi Yitzchak Batzri, a noted Kabbalist from Jerusalem, spoke to Breaking Israel News about how the wave of earthquakes fits into the Messianic process. There is no doubt that the earthquakes have a divine origin. As Rabbi Yitzchak Batzri pondered, he commented: 

Rabbi Yitzchak Batzri – “The potential of earthquakes has been a part of the history of the world since the first days of creation, but the power that brings it into existence is God’s will. The will is triggered by human action. Our actions, in relation to God, affect His decision to enact the forces of nature, especially in things having to do with our rejecting sanctity. As King David wrote: 

Psalms 104:32 – “He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; He toucheth the mountains, and they smoke” 

This describes what will happen in the End of Days before the final redemption. There will be an earthquake in Israel, but it will be beneficial, opening up the Temple Mount, bringing forth living waters, purifying the city to receive the Messiah.” 

The rabbinic understanding of this prophecy has over the centuries is today now supported by the opinions of many scientists. The Land of Israel sits on the Syria-African rift, which runs along the Dead sea Valley. It passes through the area thought to be the sites of Sodom and Gomorrah, and the city of Jericho, which still stands today. 

The Biblical accounts of the destruction of the twin cities of evil, and the later account of the falling walls of Jericho, could very well be interpreted as divinely powered geologic catastrophes. 

Per Dr. Shmuel Marco’s research on earthquakes and catastrophic event in the Middle East, such catastrophic events have been common to the region over the past millenniums. It was Dr. Shmuel Marco, who studied earthquake timelines and it was expected that that more earthquakes would be expected soon. Major earthquakes were recorded in the Jordan Valley in the years 31 BCE, 363 CE, 749 CE and 1033 CE.As he stated: 

Dr. Shmuel Marco – “So roughly, we are talking about an interval of every 400 years. If we follow the patterns of nature, a major quake should be expected any time because almost a whole millennium has passed since the last strong earthquake. The rash of earthquakes has brought about one of those rare scenarios in which scientific theory and prophetic vision agree: earthquakes threaten our future. Man would be wise to prepare, spiritually and physically, for what lies ahead.” 

According to the CATDAT database, the socioeconomic loss and metrics from natural disasters globally suggests that floods have caused the highest damage, earthquakes and storms show an increasing role in recent times. The overall data suggests that Natural Disasters since 1900 have resulted in over 8 Million Deaths and 7 Trillion US Dollars damage since 1980.

Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi prophetic insight on Recent Catastrophes 

Rabbi Artiz’s predictions appeared to dove-tail closely the catastrophic waves in which from 1900 up to the summer of 2015 it appears to align themselves with numerous global incidents around the world. 

The dual higher magnitude wave of major earthquakes which included a 7.8 magnitude quake in Ecuador that killed over 500 people, and a 7.3 magnitude quake in Japan that killed over 50 appears to come in alliance with global catastrophes as Seismologists were beginning to become more spiritually inclined that prophecy was connected to the end-of days. And while lost planes are uncommon in these technologically-advanced days, it is nearly three years to the day since the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 vanished into thin air. 

Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi prophetic insight on American President Donald Trump 

Rabbi Ben Artzi’s other predictions focused on the Middle East, ranging from the impact of Donald Trump’s presidency on Israel to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and radical Islam. 

Rabbi Artzi carried words of encouragement to the Jewish people in Israel with the message that Trump will be good for the Jewish State of Israel and that “Trump is doing his real work in secret, so he can fix all the things that were made “crooked”. He doesn’t like to make his plans public prematurely, and if he hasn’t yet done what he promised, he will.” 

Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi prophetic insight on the Jerusalem American Embassy and the bilateral Peace Agreement between Israel and the Palestinians 

There has been “One presidential promise that has been reneged upon and failed in the campaign promises of his President Trump’s predecessors was the promise of the American presidents that they would move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. 

This one issue has captured the international attention of all the nations of the world as to whether President Donald Trump will move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem? 

Yet not realized due to the subdued coverage of the international media was the fact that there was currently already a delegation of two congressmen who arrived in Israel to begin scouting locations for the embassy in Jerusalem and putting the move into motion. 

When it came to the diplomatic potential of a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, the famed mystical rabbi, Rabbi Ben Artzi predicted that there “would be no advances in negotiations” premised on the fact that “coexistence runs counter to the spiritual inclination of the Arabs.” As Rabbi Artzi exclaimed: 

Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi – “The Palestinians and Hamas don’t want peace. It is inscribed in their hearts to hate the Jews and to expel them from Israel. The Palestinians can live anywhere else in the Middle East, but they choose to cope with the difficulties in Israel so “they could have a chance to harm the Jews.” 

Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi prophetic insight that ISIS has a Divine Role in the end-time Messianic Era. 

Regardless of their nefarious goals to destroy the State of Israel and drive the Jews into the sea, Rabbi Ben Artzi went on to state that “the Arab world, even avowed enemies like ISIS and Iran, will fail to harm Israel.” As Rabbi Artzi then proclaimed: 

Rabbi Ben Artzi – “ISIS has an unexpected place in the divine plan – its role is actually to protect Israel from its enemies. ISIS will not be wiped out. God does not want it wiped out for they are “agents of the Divine.” He then further stated: 

Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi – “ISIS creates complications all over the world in certain countries so that they will leave Israel alone. ISIS and the Muslims hate Christians more than they hate Jews.” Even deeper with the combined efforts of the world’s superpowers of America’s forces and the Russian military, ISIS has not been defeated.” 

Yet the role of ISIS since its founding in 2014, ISIS has committed dozens of terror attacks in Europe and Turkey and killed hundreds of civilians, apart from its genocidal plan to wipe out all non-Muslims within its territories. 

As for Iran, Israel has little to fear — but America does, the respected leader said. Two ISIS terrorists held several people hostage and murdered a priest on July 26, 2016 at a church in France. (YouTube) 

“Iran is still working to produce nuclear weapons,” the rabbi said. “America can use the [nuclear] agreement to reveal all the nuclear sites in Iran. But Israel is not in danger from these nuclear weapons. The threat of Iranian nuclear weapons is to America and the rest of the world.” 

The reality is that Rabbi Ben Artzi has made similar predictions in the past that have come true in shocking detail. Over a month ago, Breaking Israel News reported a prediction made by the rabbi that black magik will make a comeback in the world. It will be the adepts of “Black Magik” supporters that will focus on the world leaders like US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. 

Less than two weeks later, opponents of President Trump gathered outside Trump Tower in New York City in an attempt to curse the president and his supporters. They sent out a call on social media for others to join in, with detailed instructions on how to perform the black magic. 

Another of the rabbi’s predictions that materialized was concerning Russia providing Iran with the advanced S-300 anti-aircraft weapons system in the summer of 2016 when Rabbi Ben Artzi made the following statement backed by the promises of the Divine: 

Psalms 37:15 – “Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken: 

Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi – “These missiles, which can shoot down practically any plane, will get a virus in their computers, and go crazy.” With additional emphasis, Rabbi Ben Artzi reassured his followers in September. “They (the missiles will blow up inside their bunkers. The launcher will blow up underneath them.”


The Failed Russian S-300 Launching (YouTube video capture)

In the week before December 16, 2016, Breaking Israel News reported again, this time on the failed launching of Russia’s advanced S-300 anti-aircraft weapons system to Iran, again Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi stated that it was not necessary to worry. It was in a vision when Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi received included a biblical inspired vision when he was shown the fate of the missiles. 

In December, a video went up on YouTube showing precisely what the rabbi had prophesied: a missile shot out of an S-300 launcher but its rocket failed to ignite. The missile dropped back onto its launcher, exploding inside the bunker. 

We must honor the fact that as Jews and Lost 10 Israelites, we also were given access to live in the Holy Land of Israel subject to conditions as outlined by the G-d of Israel.

The condition of any of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, their remaining in “The Land” came with one proviso; “Conquer the Land”. “Drive out the Canaanites (Palestinians)” who were corrupting the land given by the G-d of Israel to Abraham in an epic contract for all ages; guaranteed by the Sovereign power of G-d. 

This is the same “Divine Contract” that has been given also to the last Israeli Prime Minister of the State of Israel; Benyamin Netanyahu, which he is mandated by G-d to honor today. 

After the Government of Israel comes under the yoke of Metatron, Melekh HaMaschiach’s (King Messiah’s) Divine rule in Jerusalem, only then will the Commonwealth of Israel’s rule extend all over Planet Earth as HaShem’s Solar Rex Capital of our Solar System. 

As stated above, this same mandate has been given also to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as stated in the Torah: 
Conquer the Ancient Canaanite lands in Galilee, Shomron (Samaria) and Judea and the East Side of the Jordan River in Basham and Assyria. 

Return the Palestinians back to the lands of their Ishmaelite forefathers in Jordan on the East Bank of the Jordan River and beyond in the deserts of Arabia. 

Support the Jewish people in building towns, industry, re-foresting the Mountains of Central Israel, for it is the Divine Mandate that the Jewish people and the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel must settle, plant fields and orchards, develop spiritual technology, create cities of holiness as our act of “arousal from below”. 

Support the Jewish Rabbanim in creating an atmosphere of holiness in Jerusalem and the cities in Israel so that the G-d of Israel can open the “floodgates of heaven and herald in the future, Olam HaBah (World to Come) as we welcome the elevated level of consciousness that is part of the futuristic “Era of the Messiah”. 

So role as G-d opens the flood gates of heaven, even we as the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel, may step through the interdimensional vortex into the futuristic 4th dimensional world of messianic consciousness.


According to Rabbi Joel David Bakst in “The Jerusalem Stone of Consciousness”: we read: 

Joel David Bakst – “Just as in the human body neural pathways are already built into us, likewise the inter-dimensional pathways are already built into us, likewise the inter-dimensional circuits that spread out from Jerusalem throughout the world are built into creation. 

This is the esoteric meaning of the verse, “For out of Zion” [another code name for the Foundation Stone called the Makon or “G-d’s Holy Place”, that is covered by the Even Shetiya [Golden Dome of the Rock] “will go forth Torah” referring to the renewed Torah consciousness along the “Teetering Edge of the Messianic Age.” 

The future waterways referred to are not only something that will be created totally new. These virtual global “cerebral neural networks” and passage ways already have their channels carved out in the extra-dimensional planes. 

The circuits or “tunnels” are already here and we must “get our motor running”, and our pulsating thought waves activated as we find our way into the higher levels of messianic consciousness. As the Talmudic Sages have stated over the centuries. The mystic sages over the centuries have alluded to these hidden meridians when, the Sages enigmatically inform us that: 

In the future; the level of kedusha/holiness of the Holy of Holies will spread throughout the entire Temple Mount, 

Then the level of kedusha/holiness of Jerusalem will spread throughout all of Eretz Yisrael (Land of Israel and then, 

The kedusha/holiness of Eretz Yisrael (Land of Israel) will spread to the whole world.

 Let us link their prophetic understanding as we prepare ourselves for our catastrophic and redemptive future. So what will be the potential effect of the Red Twin Binary Star have upon our Planet Earth? If we evaluate the futuristic Maps of North and Central America, this is what we may see affecting the North America including the United States, Canada and Mexico?


Elongational Orbit of Nibiru, the Binary Red Dwarf Twin to our Sun’s Twin Star Solar System

Water will cover the coastline of the Pacific Northwest all the way down from the Alaskan Peninsula, extending for hundreds of miles over a good portion of the States of Washington, Oregon and all the way along the California coastline to the Baja region of Northern Mexico.


The Potential Effect of the Red Binary Star Nibiru upon North and Central America

Those with “eyes that can see and behold” can only ponder the significance of what will happen to Planet Earth when Nibiru’s smaller solar system with its 7 planetoids races by in a close fly-by. If we evaluate the futuristic Maps of North and Central America, this is what we may see: 

The volcanos in the Pacific Northwest will begin to erupt, the earthquakes begin to rumble, the tsunamis will race across the oceans to devastate the shorelines of the continents on the other side of the oceans. 

The Molten Iron Core of the Earth will continue to energize more and more, so that the plumes of magma erupting from the “magnetic core engine” of Planet Earth become so strong that they raise the beds of the maritime trenches of the Pacific Ocean and push up the mantle of the earth, according to “earth-change” researchers between 200 to 600 feet higher under the waters of the Pacific. 

As such the oceanic floor of the Pacific Ocean will rise from below, the oceanic waters above will begin to rise up higher and higher until 80% of Oregon, all of Nevada, 3/4th of Utah and parts of Northern Colorado will be under water. 

The entire coastline of California, including San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego all the way down to Baja California will be inundated like the ancient cities of old in past catastrophes. 

Parts of ancient maritime continents in the mythology of human peoples, may also rise such as the ancient mythical lands of Lemuria in the Pacific and Atlantis in the Atlantic Oceans. 

The Mississippi River will open up engulfing all the lands to its south into the Gulf of Mexico. 

The Gulf of Mexico will also be engulfed as water will rise several hundred feet inundating Houston and lands south of the escarpment resting to the south of Dallas and Fort-Worth. 

The Islands of the Caribbean Sea will completely go under the water including the Petén in Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Haiti and the Dominican Republic. 

Along the Eastern Seaboard of the United States, Florida will be inundated and Miami is expected to be immersed as it sinks under the rising waters of the Atlantic Ocean. 

The Atlantic maritime coastline will also be submerged east of the Appalachian Mountains. The Atlantic maritime coastline along the eastern coastline of the United States and Washington DC, New York, Philadelphia and Boston will be prone to mega-tsunamis hundreds of feet in height. 

As we dwell upon these momentous days in our near future, we have to ponder the words of the prophets of the Hebrew TaNaKh and the Essene disciples of the esteemed Nasi of the Jerusalem Great Sanhedrin, Hillel the Great and his Beit Av Din, Menahem the Essene whose Orthodox disciples fled to Damascus first and later to Qumran. 

Let us link their prophetic understanding as we prepare ourselves for our catastrophic and redemptive future:


 The Rising Sun and the Twin Binary Red Dwarf Star in our Twin Star Solar System preparing for its Final Apocalypse

Revelation 6:12 – “Then I watched as he broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake, the sun turned black as sackcloth worn in mourning, and the full moon became shaken by strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved from its place.  

Then the earth’s kings, the rulers, the generals, the rich and the mighty – indeed, everyone, slave and free – hid himself in caves and among the rocks in the mountains and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us, and hide us from the face of the One sitting on the throne and from the fury of the Lamb! For the Great Day of their fury has come, and who can stand!” 

Revelation 16:17- “The seventh one poured out his bowl on the air, and a loud voice came out of the of the Temple from the throne, saying, “It is done!”

There were flashes of lightning, voices and peals of thunder; and there was a massive earthquake, such has never occurred since mankind has been on earth, so violent was the earthquake. 

The great city (Washington, DC called Babylon the Great) was split into three parts (East of the Mississippi, West of the Mississippi, and the coastline of the Pacific Northwest and California and Baja California), the cities of the nations fell, …

Every island fled, and no mountains were to be found. And huge seventy pound hailstones fell on people from the sky. But the people cursed G-d for the plague of hail, that it was such a terrible plague.” 

Then compare these same cataclysmic times, in our prophetic future, as the Prophet Zechariah wrote these words: 

Zechariah 14:2,4,6 – “For I will gather all the nations against Yerushalayim for war…On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, …and the Mountain of Olives will be split in half from east to west; to make a huge valley…

On that day, there will be neither bright light nor thick darkness; and one day, known to Adonai, will be neither day nor night (sun will not go down), although by evening there will be light (sun will rise from west where it went down in the west (Planet Earth just made a partial or complete Pole Shift).” 

All of you have wondered how the G-d of Israel will bring all the prophetic events to their fulfillment at the time of the end. Watching the “Finger of the Divine” stirring up nations of the world is far more fascinating than watching a movie drama. The end results will be that all nations will pool all their economic resources at the “gates of Israel” and be prepared to once again to evoke the “Final Solution” this time amongst the remnant of the Jewish peoples that include all the Jews of the Diaspora that have fled to Israel as a land of safety before their life would be thrust through the “gate“ into “the world to come”. 

Yet, at that time, a massive influx or possibly mass migrations of the Lost Tribes of Israel will be returning home led by the spirit of HaShem. And during this same time, the G-d of Israel is wooing each one of you, the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel, to return and be restored back into brotherhood with the Jews of the House of Judah so that He will send His Messiah to clean house of all the wickedness and corruption on Planet Earth. 

An Ancient Alien Gilgamesh Found Buried In Iraq 


Many attributed the legend surrounding the great ancient King of Uruk, and many of the cities written attributes to mythology.

Uruk said to had become famous as the capital city of the king Gilgamesh, the Ancient ruler and hero of the Epic of Gilgamesh.

It is believed that Uruk was the biblical Erech from Genesis 10:10, the second city founded by Nimrod in Shinar.

The Epic of Gilgamesh – written by a Middle Eastern scholar 2,500 years before the birth of Christ – commemorates the life of the ruler of the city of Uruk, from which Iraq gets its name.

Uruk went through several phases of growth, from the Early Uruk period (4000-3500 BC) to the Late Uruk period (3500-3100 BC).

The city was said to have been formed when two smaller Ubaid settlements merged. The temple complexes at their cores became the Eanna District and the Anu District dedicated to Inanna and Anu, respectively.

In 2003 just prior to the Iraq invasion which toppled Hussein, astonishing discoveries were being made in Iraq, culminating in one of the most extraordinary claims anywhere for centuries.

A claim which American forces have been strongly accused of confiscating, subsequently becoming the prime suspect as the driving force behind a complete suppression of these astonishing discoveries within the country.

In the April of 2003, Jorg Fassbinder, of the Bavarian department of Historical Monuments, in Munich, told the BBC World Service’s Science in Action program, quote,

“I don’t want to say definitely that it was the grave of King Gilgamesh, but it looks very similar to that described in the epic.”

“We found just outside the city an area in the middle of the former Euphrates river, the remains of such a building which could be interpreted as a burial,” Mr Fassbinder said.”

In the book, Gilgamesh is described as having been buried under the Euphrates, in a tomb apparently constructed when the waters of the ancient river parted, following his death.

He said, the amazing discovery of the ancient city under the Iraqi desert had been made possible by modern technology.

“The most surprising thing was that we found structures already described by Gilgamesh,” Mr Fassbinder stated.

“We covered more than 100 hectares. We have found garden structures and field structures as described in the epic, and we found Babylonian houses.”

But he said the most astonishing find was an incredibly sophisticated system of canals.

Here predictably is where the story goes silent… due to conflict within the country it was largely believed the excavations had been halted,

However, it seems that the discovery of King Gilgamesh may not have been made in isolation, and apparently some onlookers were able to record the event.

This footage was supposedly leaked to numerous places across the internet, and has largely been put down as authentic footage of the find, shortly after this was taken reports state that American forces moved in and seized the find.

Why do The Powers That Be see fit to suppress such discoveries, the very real tombs of characters long thought to have been mythical?

Osiris being but one example among many which have undoubtedly been hidden from the public. Maybe some clues to why his tomb has been hidden, lay within the epic, and the immense powers Gilgamesh was said to have possessed.

He was the 5th king of Uruk and his power was so mighty, many believe that the stories surrounding him are just myths, that were built around his seemingly super human strength and endurance.

However, serious scholars concluded that the story of Gilgamesh was nothing more than a fairy tale due to the astonishing story.

In The Epic the great king is thought to be too proud and arrogant by the gods and so they decide to teach him a lesson, sending the wild man, Enkidu, to humble him.

Enkidu and Gilgamesh, after a fierce battle in which neither are bested, become friends and embark on adventures together.

When Enkidu is struck with death, Gilgamesh falls into a deep grief and, recognizing his own mortality through the death of his friend, questions the meaning of life and the value of human accomplishment in the face of ultimate extinction.

Casting away all of his old vanity and pride, Gilgamesh sets out on a quest to find the meaning of life and, finally, some way of defeating death. In doing so, he becomes the first epic hero in world literature. 

The grief of Gilgamesh, and the questions his friend’s death evoke, resonate with every human being who has wrestled with the meaning of life in the face of death.

Although Gilgamesh ultimately fails to win immortality in the story, his deeds live on through the written word and, so, does he.

Is this below leaked footage of the tomb of Gilgamesh?

Regardless of its authenticity, why all the secrecy?

 Are we as a species not capable of being presented with things, which test our core beliefs, without erupting into chaos?

It seems for now we may have to wait to find out…

This Week’s Torah Portion | July 09 – July 15, 2017 – 15 Tammuz – 21 Tammuz, 5777


Pinhas Parsha – Weekly Torah Portion

TORAH : NUMBERS 25:10-30:1

PROPHETS : 1 KINGS 18:46-19:21

GOSPEL : MARK 11:27-12:37

PORTION SUMMARY

Note: During the three-week period “between the straits” (the 17th of Tammuz through the 9th of Av) the usual Haftarah portions (for this week, I Kings 18:46—19:21) are replaced by special “Haftarah’s of Affliction/Admonition”), calling Israel to sober contemplation of her sin and her deserving of severe judgment—and of the Love of her God still drawing her to repent and return to Him.

The Zeal of the Lord

“I have been very zealous for YHVH God of Armies…”

(II Kings 19:14; From the Haftarah usually accompanying Parasha Pinhas)

*Numbers 25: 11, 13. “Phinehas the son of Eleazar, the son of Aharon the Priest has turned back My wrath from the children of Israel, because he was zealous with my zeal among them, so that I did not consume the children of Israel in My zeal…He was zealous for his God, and made atonement for the children of Israel.”

The Hebrew word Kinah Biblically may be translated either zeal (NKJV) or jealousy (NASB). Holy zeal is a burning passionate jealousy on behalf of something or someone good and deeply loved. Phinehas was zealous for “the honour of his God” (25:11,13 NIV). In a psalm foreshadowing the coming Messiah, David sang of his zeal for God’s House (Psalm 69:9; John 2:17), which consumed him. Zechariah 1:14 records YHVH’s zeal for Jerusalem—and Isaiah 9:6-7 speaks of His zeal for His Son and the establishment of His Righteous Kingdom on Earth.

(Note: But zeal must be based on a knowledge of what is righteous before God (Romans 10:2), otherwise it may be released in indiscriminate human anger which cannot work that righteousness (James 1:20). It is important also to know that kinah may be used for a kind of unholy jealousy ignited by the flesh, in which case it is refers to mere envy—Proverbs 23:17).

Please Pray:

For the awakening believers in Israel of a burning zeal, a holy jealousy for the things of God, based on truth and knowledge (Rom 10:2)—a zeal which will be necessary in turning away God’s wrath so that his people in this later generation are not consumed.

The Voice in the Still Silent Moment

*I Kings 19:11-12. (From the Haftarah usually accompanying Parasha Pinhas—I Kings 18:46—19:21). . “And the LORD was not in the wind…the earthquake…the fire; and after the fire a still small voice”.

The “still small voice” can also be translated, “A voice—a silence—a moment.” Apprehending this moment, pregnant with the Word of God, is essential for those aflame with zeal. In the cave, Elijah protested that he had been “very zealous” on God’s behalf—yet God had to show him that the roar and shaking and flame accompanying his zeal had not been enough—the intense persecution it had aroused had left Elijah with feelings of alienation, rejection and fear.

There must also be the stabilizing presence of the quiet Word within, at the center of the storm. When He yielded to that Word, the Lord was able to release instructions for Him to “return to his way” (vs 15) and proceed onwards towards the culmination of his call.In the roar of Israel, it is difficult, yet essential to apprehend and embrace that “still silent moment.” Psalm 4:4 literally says, “Become agitated and do not sin—speak in your hearts on your beds and be still (same Hebrew word as “still” in the I Kings verse).

PLEASE PRAY THAT WE TAKE THE TIME TO HEAR AND ENTER INTO THESE MOMENTS WHEN THEY COME.

A New Generation—A New Numbering

*Numbers 26:1-2: “And it came to pass, after the plague, that the LORD spoke to Moses and Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, saying: ‘Take a census of all the congregation of the children of Israel from twenty years old and above, by their fathers’ houses, all who are able to go to war in Israel.”—

Numbers 26:64-65: “But among these there was not a man of those who were numbered by Moses and Aaron the priest (Numbers 2) when they numbered the children of Israel in the Wilderness of Sinai. For the LORD had said to them, ‘They shall surely die in the wilderness.’ So there was not left a man of them, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun.”

With the 24,000 who died in the plague brought on by the seduction of the women of Moab, the older generation which had rebelled forty years before is finally passed. A new numbering of the people must take place—a new accounting in which each knows his/her positioning—but the ‘old’ has been left behind.

*Numbers 27:16. “Then Moses spoke to the LORD, saying ‘Let YHVH, the God of Spirits of all Flesh set a man over the congregation…’”

This name for the diety (almost exactly the same as was used in Numbers 16:22, only this time using the personal name YHVH) implies the sovereign knowledge the LORD has of the inner workings of all human beings. It is noteworthy that Moses uses this name in requesting the LORD’s appointment of a new leader—and the Lord responds by referring specifically to the “spirit” within Joshua (27:18).
The Transfer of Mantles

*Numbers 27:18-20: “Take Joshua the son of Nun with you, a man in whom is the Spirit, and lay your hand on him; set him before Eleazar the priest and before all the congregation, and inaugurate him in their sight. And you shall give some of your authority, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient” (NKJV)

I Kings 19:16, 19. “…and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel Meholah you shall anoint as prophet in your place…Then Elijah passed by him and threw his mantle on him.”

It was not enough that Joshua was skilled and experienced after serving over forty years under Moses’ leadership. Something more was necessary; something beyond Moses’ own natural abilities, something supernatural bespeaking the high authority of Heaven had affected the rebellious people in such a way that they had continued to follow and respect Moses’ leadership in the desert for 40 years.

This particular “authority” of which he was commanded to pass some on to Joshua is Hebrew hod –“a grandeur or majesty related to royalty” (“splendor” in Psalm 45:3 NASB). This sovereign enabling for leadership, which would influence the congregation to listen to and obey his word. was passed on here by the laying on of hands and the public releasing of God’s charge (“inaugurating”) into Joshua.

In the usual Haftarah reading for this Parasha, after Elijah threw his mantle on Elisha, the younger prophet immediately arose and “ran after” him.

Please Pray:

For leaders in the Body in Israel to “hear” and be obedient in passing on their mantles to faithful ones upon whom God will release favour in the generation rising up behind.

A Reminder of Appointed Times and Seasons

*Numbers 28:2. “Command the Children of Israel, and say to them, ‘My offering, My food for My offerings made by fire as a sweet aroma to Me, you shall be careful to offer to Me at their appointed time.”

Timing is an important aspect of our worship. Ecclesiastes 3:1-11 speaks of times and seasons, and of the necessity of timing in the manifesting of the beauty God desires to bring forth in His creation. Here in Chapters 28-29 are presented anew for the next generation the “appointed times” of the LORD (along with the sacrifices to be made during each):

Daily (morning and evening), Weekly (Sabbaths), Monthly (Rosh Chodesh—Head of the Month),

Springtime:

Pesach (Passover), Matzot (Unleavened Bread), Shavuot (Weeks, Pentecost),

Fall:

Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), Sukkot (Feast of Booths/Tabernacles, with instructions for each of the eight days).

All these times of the LORD (with their relevant offerings) are here laid out afresh before His army, before moving forward into their new Land.

The Parashah for next week. July16-22. 2017 will be a “Double Reading”:

I: Matot—“Tribes”:
TORAH: Numbers 30:1–32:42

II Massei—“Journeys of…”:

TORAH 33:1—36:13;

HAFTARAH (2nd “Haftarah of Affliction”): Jeremiah 2:4-28; 3:4

In A Nutshell

In the beginning of the portion the Creator thanks Pinhas for stopping the plague and gives him a “covenant of peace,” and a “covenant of an everlasting priesthood” to him and to his descendants. All the while, the children of Israel are preparing to fight the Midianties.

Following the instructions of the Creator, Moses divides the land into lots, following censuses held in the people by tribes and by families. At the conclusion of the censuses, the daughters of Zelophehad, from the tribe of Menashe, complain to Moses that their father died and as women, they did not receive their lot. Moses looks into the matter and the Creator rules that to do justice, the daughters of Zelophehad will be given a lot in the land, which will be named after their father.
The Creator commands Moses to climb up the Mountain of Avarim to see the land of Israel, which he will not enter, and to appoint Joshua, son of Nun, as his successor.

At the end of the portion there is a detailed description of the offerings that needed to be sacrificed each day and on different occasions during the year.

Commentary
According to The Book of Zohar, the portion, Pinhas, is profound and evokes many questions. The story tells of people such as Pinhas, who are seemingly greater than Moses. The Creator blesses and praises him that he is as great as Joshua, that he is replacing Moses, who is climbing down from center stage. There is also the issue of women’s rights, some of whom can be as the men, receiving a lot.

As we know, the Torah does not speak of corporeal events or physical bodies, but of souls. The souls are what is important, the eternal part in each of us. This is why we need to understand that the text describes the “human within us,” which must experience all the portions of the Torah along the spiritual development.

This portion speaks of a very special point that awakens in us, a special desire called Pinhas.Only this point, this desire, achieves the “covenant of peace”—peace and wholeness with the Creator. The desire known as Pinhas unites in Dvekut (adhesion) with the Creator, in a covenant of complete and eternal connection, which lasts forever and does not wane. This is the first of the stages of correction and connection that the soul goes through. In that correction it becomes attached to the highest degree in its correction and development.

The second stage comes after all the successes of the children of Israel. Now all the forces within us are called Israel, Yashar El (straight to God), having received the previous corrections. A person begins with an egoistic will to receive that has come out of Egypt in its entirety. In that stage, a person has hardly escaped one’s ego, and wants to avoid using one’s egoistic qualities. In that stage a person has nothing. It is as though one is standing in the desert with nothing to eat. “Eating” is an attainment of spirituality, which fills the soul until it is completely satiated with Godliness, with the revelation of the Creator. “Return, oh Israel, unto the Lord your God,” consciously, with understanding, fulfillment, and a sensation of the attainment of the Creator. These are the stages of the correction of the soul from the entrance to the desert through the wars, and up to that point, Midian.

Once we have a grip of a high degree, a part of the common soul, then we are all parts of a single soul, “as one man with one heart.” We are all in mutual guarantee, in that covenant that we agreed on for the first time when we received the Torah.

The children of Israel constantly keep strengthening the covenant. Each day we pass through the “desert” in our empty lives, not knowing what to do, immersed in struggles and corrections. Each transgression and mistake that the children of Israel make is because the evil inclination is surfacing. However, it is a descent in order to ascend.
We discover that we are broken and cannot bestow, so we cry out and demand the light that reforms. The light, meaning the Creator, comes and corrects, and guides us on how to act against the will to receive. It is called “punishing the ego,” so the man in us ascends.

This is the process we go through. It is a stage of deep egoistic discernments in a person, which one can correct. These discernments are called Midian.

This is how Moses—who emerged from Pharaoh’s house—grows. His wife comes from the house of Midian because Jethro was the priest of Midian.

Moses nurtures Pinhas. Pinhas is in fact Moses on a higher degree, and in this progression it is a complementation of the degree.

On that stage, all the forces, all the elements within a person are ready to wage war on Midian. A “war” is a reawakening of all the corrupted desires in a person that seemed to have calmed down, but which have yet to be corrected. We must reawaken them and mend them. It is a time to calculate, to find out the number of Israel, who is on the camp, who is outside the camp, and for counting the heads of the tribes.

Calculating means reaching a degree in which the light of Hochma (wisdom) dresses in light of Hassadim (mercy). Seeing a calculation (accounting) is the light of vision, the light of Hochma that we see. On that degree we can already count what is in it and what is not. It is not a degree of VAK, the degree of the desert. Rather, it is already the GAR of the degree.

On a complete degree there is light of Hassadim and light of Hochma. Using one’s desires is done both in bestowal and in the intention to receive in order to bestow. These are acts of Gadlut (adulthood) of the degree, with which one corrects one’s soul on a very high level.

It is a profound correction of part of the will to receive, of the deficiency in the soul. This is why the women come and say, “We need the correction and we cannot receive it. How do we do it?” It is the point of deficiency in a man, the profound will to receive that is corrected into working in order to bestow. This is also the reason for Moses’ reply to the daughters of Zelophehad.

For this reason, when the biggest desires appear, the desires called “a woman’s desires,” it is possible to correct them as with those of a man’s. With the men it is an intention to bestow in order to bestow, while with the women it is an intention to receive in order to bestow—bigger desires and deeper corrections.
The portion, Pinhas, narrates a stage in the advancement toward the end of correction. The portion details very deep corrections in the soul, in the corrected part of the soul. Our soul is the entire desire that the Creator created. It appears as broken in us, as our ego that must be corrected.

We should be happy when a piece of ego appears because it is written, “I have created the evil inclination,” which is the appearance, “I have created for it the Torah as a spice,” because “the light in it reforms.” That is, after the revelation of the evil inclination in us, once we have learned that we have no idea how to work with it, we discover the spice of Torah. Through the Torah we can correct the evil inclination.

The spice is the hidden light that is called Zohar (brightness), or Ziharah Ilaa (Aramaic: upper brightness). This is the light that corrects and reforms, and this is the process we must undergo.

Afterward, the portion speaks of Moses climbing Mount Avarim and watching the land of Israel from there. This is the conclusion of the degree of Moses, who is the “faithful shepherd,” entirely adhered to Bina, bestowal, the aim to bestow in order to bestow. That state does not allow him to enter the will to receive called “the land of Israel,” in which the correction is to work in order to bestow. The Hebrew word Eretz (land) comes from the word Ratzon (desire). The word Ysrael (Israel) comes from the words Yashar El (straight to God), meaning straight toward bestowal. This is why that stage was given to Joshua and not to Moses.

The Creator said to Moses that his place was given to Joshua, that he is the one who will enter the land of Israel, while Moses will stay outside, on Moses’ degree. The next degree is the next stage, which Joshua, son of Nun, must correct. Joshua is an extension of Moses’ degree, just as Pinhas is an extension of the same soul.

The quality called Moses in each of us develops into the quality called Pinhas, then advances to the next quality, Joshua. Moses, the observer, brings the light of Hochma, the light of seeing. He brings that degree to all of Israel. However, the one who carries out this action is the corrected part in the soul, which is called Joshua, son of Nun.

The portion also speaks of the offerings (sacrifices). When a person discovers that one’s nature is bad, a person wants to rid oneself of it and escape it. Such a person is willing to sacrifice, burn, kill, slaughter, anything to rid oneself of the evil inside. In sacrificing, a person does not slaughter something outside, but only the beast within. Such a person slaughters the vegetative, and even the still (inanimate) within, using water and salt, as it is written, “On all your offerings you shall offer salt” (Leviticus, 2:13).
We “process” the desires below the human degree—on the degrees of still, vegetative, and animate—through the human degree in us. We turn desires that were with the aim to receive, egoistic desires with the evil inclination, into such that work with the aim to bestow. We sacrifice them. In Hebrew, Makriv means both sacrificing and bringing closer. Thus, we bring the desires closer to correction, and through it we draw closer to the Creator and become like Him.

This is called the “work of the sacrifices,” “holy work,” “work of the priests,” the “Levites” that exist within us. Israel is the part that brings the offerings. The part of Israel within us brings the part in the desires on the levels of still, vegetative, and animate to the Levites and the priests. In this way we take all the desires within and raise them to correction through the work of the sacrifices.

Keeping the Covenant

“It is written in Pinhas, ‘I give to him My covenant of peace,’ meaning peace from the angel of death, who never controls him and in whose judgments he is not judged. Should you say that he did not die, he died but he certainly did not die as do the rest of the people. He lived longer than all his contemporaries because he clung to that upper covenant. When he passed away from the world, in sublime passion and in comely Dvekut (adhesion), he departed from the rest of the people in the world.”

Zohar for All, Pinhas, item 22

Each time, we correct our corrupted desires and add them to the structure of the soul in us. The corrupted desires are called “desires that comprise the soul, the “Kli (vessel) of the soul,” the “body of the soul.” The desires are corrected to work in order to bestow, for the sake of others, and from the love of others to the love of the Creator.

The soul has a body: the desires outside a person, which work for the sake of others. These are desires that act out of the evil inclination, in favor of oneself, but receive the form of working in order to bestow, the good inclination, working in love and bestowal, as it is written, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” this is the great rule of the Torah. To the extent that a person acts within those desires, performing acts of bestowal and true giving, one feels the “clothing of the Creator,” the “clothing of the upper light.”

This is why it was said that Pinhas did not die like others. Rather, it is a stage within us that only grows. It is that corrected degree of attainment of Godliness within the corrected Kli with the light that fills it.

Can spirituality be passed on by inheritance?

There is an unbreakable law here: it is all one man. There aren’t many people in the world, there is only one. In other words, the Torah is written for a single person, who includes within the entire world. It is written that “Man is a small world” (Midrash Tanchuma, Pekudei, item 3). Everything is included within us; we perceive the whole of the outer reality within us.

We have no idea whether anything exists outside of us. All we know is that we feel it within. For example, when we touch something, we cannot tell whether we are actually touching it, but we can feel it as solid, liquid, warm or cold.

We feel that it exists and that we are touching it. But in the end, all we feel is ourselves. We see ourselves existing in some reality, but that reality is depicted within us, in the back of our minds. The people and the objects around us are not really there; they are within us.

The reality we perceive is divided into still, vegetative, animate, and human. We are the ones who sense all of them in this way because this is how our will to receive is built. It is divided into four stages—1, 2, 3, and 4—where it perceives sensations and impressions.

As far as the history of the Jews is concerned, it is as though the Torah describes a play, but these are all things that happen within us. If we want to read the Torah as it truly is we should ascribe everything that is written there to ourselves. We should read every word in the Torah as an explanation of what exists within us: Pinhas, Joshua, Midian, a Priest, a Levite, Israel, the tribes, and everything else.

A priest, for example, is a degree of a person. It arrives when the will to receive is entirely corrected into working in order to bestow. This is why priests have no lot.

When the degree of Moses ends and the degree of Pinhas begins, Moses climbs Mount Avarim and looks at the land of Israel. It is a certain degree called “seeing.” Through it he makes a correction for the entire nation. What is the correction of seeing?

Moses performs a great correction. There is a correction in potential, and there is a correction in actuality, de facto. A correction in potential is when there are still no Kelim (vessels) that are large enough to fit the correction. Moses is a degree in which one does not work with vessels of reception with the intention to bestow. This is why he did not enter the land of Israel—the desire that must be turned into Yashar El (straight to God), Israel.

His following degree, Joshua, son of Nun, will do it, as it is a more practical degree. Joshua is an extension, a degree that is annulled before the degree of Moses. This is why Joshua was Moses’ assistant, always supporting and always by his side, and he was chosen to succeed him.

The relationship between them was such that Joshua would set up the benches at Moses’ seminary. However, Moses, too, made great spiritual corrections. He belonged to the degree of Bina. But because Bina is detached from Malchut, Joshua was the one who implemented the corrections.

The Czechs Reject Eurozone Entry


The Czech people have rejected joining the struggling Euro with even the country’s president recognizing that the people do not want to adopt the currency.

While financial experts say they country could sign up as the general conditions are right, leader Milos Zeman has said that the people are against the move.

He said:

“We have been fulfilling the Maastricht criteria, but there is a mental barrier to its adoption. A mere 30 per cent of Czechs are in favor of entering the eurozone.”

The governor of the Czech Republic’s central bank, Jiri Rusnok, has also said that the country is ready to adopt but added that it might be better to wait until wages and prices approached those of the bloc’s core members.

According to Mr Rusnok, the Czech Republic is ready to give up the koruna but many believe it will not happen for at least five to 10 years.

He added while wage rises in some of the leading European economies are almost zero, the average salary increase in the Czech Republic is currently around five per cent.

Currently the nominal rate of wages rises in the country was 5.3 per cent in the first half of the year with average wages equivalent to €10 an hour.

Why these nations could leave the Eurozone

Heavily indebted Greece has no acute shortage of money,but will need money again from the ongoing aid program this summer.

But Athens is not the only shaky candidate of the Eurozone.

These are the other countries causing worries

Across the European Union countries though the figure is around €25 with this rising to €30 in some eurozone countries.

Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said:

“For us to remain at the core of the European Union, sooner or later we will have to respond to the question of not whether, but when the Czech Republic is capable of adopting the single European currency.”

The move comes after the latest economic data indicates while the eurozone countries are showing some signs of life they are continuing to struggle.

IHS Markit’s latest monthly health check across the countries have indicated, while the private sector has recorded signs of improvement, the rate of growth has slowed.

A statement from the company said:

“Although the rate of growth waned to a five-month low, high order book inflows and elevated levels of business confidence meant job creation remained one of the strongest recorded over the past decade as firms continued to expand capacity to meet rising demand.

“Price pressures eased, however, largely reflecting lower global commodity prices.”

JP Morgan took a more positive approach to the eurozone stating:

“The macroeconomic momentum appears to have eased somewhat in June, in particular in the Services sector.

“In light of the sharp improvement we have witnessed in the past nine months, this pause is not really a surprise and, in our opinion, should not be interpreted as an indication that the economy is about to roll over.

“Activity in the Eurozone remains at very healthy levels and consumer confidence is at its highest level in 16 years.

In addition, despite the recent drop in commodity prices, inflation dynamics remain supported by a large backlog and supplier delivery delays worsening to the greatest extent for just over six years.”

The Jewishness of Jesus: Some Religious Implications For Gentile Christians By Jewish Christian


The Jewishness of Jesus: Some Religious Implications For Gentile Christians By Jewish Christian

The one whom Christians cliam is the foundation, the cornerstone of their religion is Jesus or Yeshua, as he was really called, which was a popular variant of Joshua – meaning “the L-rd is salvation.” It is interesting to note that Jesus was himself not a Christian. He in fact was a Jew. He did not go to Mass, or indeed any worship service, on Sunday morning. He went to services on the Sabbath. He did not go to church. He went to synagogue. He did not speak Greek, Latin, Church Slavonic, German, or English. He spoke Hebrew and Aramaic – two semitic languages. He had a Jewish mother, which means he probably looked a lot like other Jews, i.e., dark hair and complexion, perhaps with a so-called Roman nose, not too large in stature. No one addressed him as Father, Paster, Reverend, or Minister. But he was addressed as Rabbi. He did not read the New Testament, nor did he think it the inspired word of G-d. He did read the Hebrew Bible and thought it the Holy Scriptures. He never recited the Rosary, chanted Hospodi pomilui at a litany, nor sang a Wesleyan hymn. Rather, he recited the psalms; he died with one on his lips: “Eli, Eli, lama sabachtani?” (My G-d, my G-d, why have you abandoned me?) He did not celebrate Christmas and Easter. He celebrated Shavout and Passover – not communion, but a Seder. To repeat, Jesus was not a Christian. He was a Jew. He was Rabbi Yeshua. 

Rabbi Yeshua was not a mediocre, run-of-the-mill, secularized Jew. He was a very observant Jew. He wore tzitzit (the dancing fringes seen on observant Jew today) – recall the story of the woman with the twelve-year flow of blood who but touched the fringe of his clothes. What is really important to remember is that, whatever Luther or any other Protestant interpreter of Paul – or Paul himself – said, Rabbi Yeshua did not ocme to dispense with or do away with the Torah, the Law. He came to carry it out. One Orthodox Israeli scholar, Pinchas Lapide, said of Yeshua:

“never and nowhere broke the Law of Moses, the Torah of Moses, nor did he in any way provoke its infringement – it is entirely false to say that he did… This Jesus was a faithful to the Law as I would hope to be. I even suspect that Jesus was more faithful to the Law than I am – and I am an Orthodox Jew.” – (Pinchas Lapid and Hans Kung, “Is Jesus a Bond or Barrier? A Jewish-Christian dialogue,” [summer, 1977] 473)

Jesus, Yeshua himself makes the claim about keeping the Law, the Torah – until the end of the world. There is no notion whasover of the abolishment of the Law in his words – and it should be remembered that they are recorded by Matthew: “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the prophets; I came not to destroy but to carry out” (plerosai, literally, to implement; Mt.5:17-19). Another Israeli Orthodox Jewish scholar put it this way: “Yeshua was “a Torah-true Jew” (David Flusser, Jesus in Selbstzeugnissen und Bilddokumenten (Reinbeck, 1968), p.43). A Jewish professor of Rabbinics at Cambridge University stated the same idea thus: “Nor can I accept that Jesus’ purpose was to do away with Judaism as he found it. He had his criticisms, to be sure, but he wanted to perfect the Law of Moses, not annul it. The Christian hostility to this law strikes me as a betrayal of Jesus’ teaching” (Nicholas de Lange, “Who is Jesus?” Sidic, vol.12, no.3 [1979], p.12). The scholar of Judaistics, Johann Maier, made the same point: “There is no evidence that Jesus had intended a suspension of the Torah. Rather, he was perceived as so devout that the Pharisees displayed an even positive interest in him and viewed him as worthy or travelling around with. Likewise, the Jewish-Christian community saw no reason to give up the Torah either in theory or practice… In no individual concrete case – neither in relation to the Sabbath healing, nor in ritual practice, nor in the question of divorce – is there a fundamental conflict with “the Law” (Johann Maier, “Jesus von Nazareth und sein Verhaltnis zum Judentum aus der Sicht eines Judaisten,” 1980, pg.95). 

It should be clear upon the briefest reflection that those Christians who attempt to set up some sort of dichotomy between the Law and grace, as if Judaism were a religion only of Law and Christianity were a religion only of grace – whaever they might be – in this regard are not followers of Jesus, of Rabbi Yeshua. He at any rate was committed to the keeping of the Law, the Torah, “as long as heaven and earth last!” and “whoever breaks even the smallest of the commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be the least in the Reign of Heaven.”
