A Warrior Czech President Milos Zeman rioted New York

An important topic of the contemporary world is a lack of courage for us. Israel needs real solidarity of other states without conditions, President Milos Zeman said during his speech at the site of the famous Jewish Foundation Gershon Jacobson Jewish Continuity Foundation in New York, taking the Bojovnik Award for the Truth.

Popisek: President Milos Zeman receives the Fighter for the Truth award

President Milos Zeman was honored in the New York City at the prestigious meeting of American and world Jewish community representatives on Monday night with the Fighter of the Truth Award. The head of state appreciation won for the lifetime support of the State of Israel and Jewish ideas in general.

Our presidents on the podium in front of VIP audiences celebrated the celebrated American billionaire, philanthropist and president of the World Jewish Congress, Ronald Lauder, celebrating a speech full of superlatives about the Czech Republic, Czechoslovakia and Zeman himself.

Milos Zeman began to finish magnificently for the stormy applause of standing. “We face the threats of the current world, and the word” solidarity “is not enough,” Zeman said in a thank-you speech at the foundation of the foundation. “We have to ask what are the risks and threats and which also pose a risk to the Jewish state of Israel,” Zeman said. According to Zeman, such a risk is Islamic terrorism, about which he intends to stand at the UN plenum.

“An important issue is lack of courage. Let’s talk about cowardice, hesitancy, hypocrisy, “Zeman said. “But we are also talking about solidarity with the conditions,” he added in a narrative of how some other states are coming to the state of Israel. All democratic countries, according to Zeman, recognize that every sovereign state needs a capital city, a safe border. Only in the case of the state of Israel some countries have a problem with Zeman and add the word “but”. According to them, Jerusalem is not the capital of the state of Israel, Zeman said. Just as Israel does not have the right to react militarily to missile launchers of Palestinian radicals from the Gaza Strip. Such an approach, according to Zeman, is that “solidarity with the conditions”.

“But we need solidarity, without conditions,” Zeman said. “We need a new candle against darkness, concrete actions and not just words,” he added. One such candle would, according to Zeman, be the relocation of embassies of democratic states from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. “I proposed the Czech embassy a few years ago. We need concrete steps towards real and unconditional solidarity, “he said.

The whole speech by Milos Zeman at the gala evening “4th Annual The Algemeiner Jewish 100”:

Mr. President, ladies and gentlemen, a shawl!

 

Thanks for the nice invitation. I’m very glad to be here. Two years ago at the AIPAC Congress, I was paraphrasing the famous John Kennedy slogan: Ich bin ein Berliner (I am a Berliner). And I said, I am a Jew (I am a Jew). And Jehudi. Anyway, this is not enough. Faced with the risks of the contemporary world, only the verbal form of solidarity is not enough. 

What is the risk of the current world facing the Jewish community and the state of Israel? First, it is Islamic terrorism, about which I will speak at the United Nations General Assembly tomorrow. And because I am not polite, I will not talk about international terrorism, but about Islamic terrorism. But the topic that is important to our debate is different. Let’s talk about lack of courage. Let’s talk about cowardice, hesitation, hypocrisy. About solidarity that is conditional. I call her “solidarity, but”. I will give you some examples: Yes, of course, we support the state of Israel, but it is not the Jewish state of Israel. Yes, we encourage each country to have its capital, but we do not support Jerusalem as the capital. Yes, we fully support the right of Israel to secure borders, but the Golan Heights can not be part of Israeli territory. And so on, and so on. Every killer from Palestine is a fighter for freedom. And if someone sends a missile from Gaza to Israel, we condemn it, but you can not react by bombing the Gaza Strip yourself. This is solidarity, but, but … 

And these absolutely contradict what solidarity is. We need solidarity without but. In other words, we need unreserved solidarity with the Jews and the State of Israel. What should we do today? Now we need a candle against the dark. We need concrete actions rather than words. And such a candle could be the relocation of embassies of democratic states from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. I proposed this relocation of the Czech embassy four years ago during my visit to Israel, and Prime Minister Netanyahu said to me then: If it does, I give you my own house. I hope that his promise is still valid. After a similar thing to me, Donald Trump promised, it may be a good impetus for some daring countries. 

So, this is a concrete solution, a concrete gesture, a concrete step towards true solidarity and not just the word. Dear friends, let me end with the last sentence of the old Jewish prayer: next year in Jerusalem! Thank you!

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

“In the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, observed in the books the number of the years which was revealed as the word of the Lord to Jeremiah the prophet for the completion of the desolations of Jerusalem, namely, seventy years. So I gave my attention to the Lord God to seek Him by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth and ashes.
I prayed to the Lord my God and confessed and said, “Alas, O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and lovingkindness for those who love Him and keep His commandments, we have sinned, committed iniquity, acted wickedly and rebelled, even turning aside from Your commandments and ordinances.
Moreover, we have not listened to Your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your name to our kings, our princes, our fathers and all the people of the land.
Righteousness belongs to You, O Lord, but to u open shame, as it is this day—to the men of Judah, the inhabitants of Jerusalem and all Israel, those who are nearby and those who are far away in all the countries to which You have driven them, because of their unfaithful deeds which they have committed against You.
Open shame belongs to us, O Lord, to our kings, our princes and our fathers, because we have sinned against You.
To the Lord our God belong compassion and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against Him; nor have we obeyed the voice of the Lord our God, to walk in His teachings which He set before us through His servants the prophets.
Indeed all Israel has transgressed Your law and turned aside, not obeying Your voice; so the curse has been poured out on us, along with the oath which is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, for we have sinned against Him…..
….. “And now, O Lord our God, who have brought Your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand and have made a name for Yourself, as it is this day—we have sinned, we have been wicked.
O Lord, in accordance with all Your righteous acts, let now Your anger and Your wrath turn away from Your city Jerusalem, Your holy mountain; for because of our sins and the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and Your people have become a reproach to all those around us. So now, our God, listen to the prayer of Your servant and to his supplications, and for Your sake, O Lord, let Your face shine on Your desolate sanctuary.
O my God, incline Your ear and hear! Open Your eyes and see our desolations and the city which is called by Your name; for we are not presenting our supplications before You on account of any merits of our own, but on account of Your great compassion.
O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and take action! For Your own sake, O my God, do not delay, because Your city and Your people are called by Your name.”
Now while I was speaking and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the Lord my God in behalf of the holy mountain of my God, while I was still speaking in prayer, then the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision previously, came to me in my extreme weariness about the time of the evening offering.
He gave me instruction and talked with me and said, “O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you insight with understanding.
At the beginning of your supplications the command was issued, and I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed; so give heed to the message and gain understanding of the vision,”
Daniel 9:2-11;15-23.

“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us. In all wisdom and insight He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be to the praise of His glory.

In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory,” Ephesians 1:7-23.

Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

“And he was afraid and arose and ran for his life and came to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there.  But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree; and he requested for himself that he might die, and said, “It is enough; now, O Lord, take my life, for I am not better than my fathers.”
He lay down and slept under a juniper tree; and behold, there was an angel touching him, and he said to him, “Arise, eat”…..
….. Then he came there to a cave and lodged there; and behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and He said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”
He said, “I have been very zealous for the Lord, the God of hosts; for the sons of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars and killed Your prophets with the sword.  And I alone am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.”
So He said, “Go forth and stand on the mountain before the Lord.”  And behold, the Lord was passing by!  And a great and strong wind was rending the mountains and breaking in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake.
After the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a sound of a gentle blowing.  When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave.  And behold, a voice came to him and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”
Then he said, “I have been very zealous for the Lord, the God of hosts; for the sons of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars and killed Your prophets with the sword.  And I alone am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.”
The Lord said to him, “Go, return on your way to the wilderness of Damascus, and when you have arrived, you shall anoint Hazael king over Aram; and Jehu the son of Nimshi you shall anoint king over Israel; and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel-meholah you shall anoint as prophet in your place.
It shall come about, the one who escapes from the sword of Hazael, Jehu shall put to death, and the one who escapes from the sword of Jehu, Elisha shall put to death.
Yet I will leave 7,000 in Israel, all the knees that have not bowed to Baal and every mouth that has not kissed him,”   
1 Kings 19:3-5, 9-18.

“Then we turned and went up the road to Bashan, and Og, king of Bashan, with all his people came out to meet us in battle at Edrei. But the Lord said to me, ‘Do not fear him, for I have delivered him and all his people and his land into your hand; and you shall do to him just as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who lived at Heshbon’…..
….. I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, ‘Your eyes have seen all that the Lord your God has done to these two kings; so the Lord shall do to all the kingdoms into which you are about to cross.  Do not fear them, for the Lord your God is the one fighting for you.’”
   Deuteronomy 3:1-2, 21-22.

“Then the Lord said to Noah, “Enter the ark, you and all your household, for you alone I have seen to be righteous before Me in this time……
….. Noah did according to all that the Lord had commanded him…..
….. Those that entered, male and female of all flesh, entered as God had commanded him; and the Lord closed it behind him,”
  Genesis 7:1,5,16.

A Declarations And Decrees:Government Laws & Restraints Against God’s Servants Are Being Reversed & Released – God-Elohim Is Sweeping Nation To Clean Out,Renew,Rebuild & Revive The Land

Jeremiah 40:2-5; 1 Kings 14:6-10; Isaiah 28: 14-19 (NASB)

Jeremiah 40:2-5

2 Now the captain of the bodyguard had taken Jeremiah and said to him, “The Lord your God promised this calamity against this place;

3 and the Lord has brought it on and done just as He promised. Because you people sinned against the Lord and did not listen to His voice, therefore this thing has happened to you.

4 But now, behold, I am freeing you today from the chains which are on your hands. If you would prefer to come with me to Babylon, come along, and I will look after you; but if you would prefer not to come with me to Babylon, never mind. Look, the whole land is before you; go wherever it seems good and right for you to go.”

5 As Jeremiah was still not going back, he said, “Go on back then to Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, whom the king of Babylon has appointed over the cities of Judah, and stay with him among the people; or else go anywhere it seems right for you to go.” So the captain of the bodyguard gave him a ration and a gift and let him go.

1 Kings 14:6-10

6 When Ahijah heard the sound of her feet coming in the doorway, he said, “Come in, wife of Jeroboam, why do you pretend to be another woman? For I am sent to you with a harsh message.

7 Go, say to Jeroboam, ‘Thus says the Lord God of Israel, “Because I exalted you from among the people and made you leader over My people Israel,

8 and tore the kingdom away from the house of David and gave it to you—yet you have not been like My servant David, who kept My commandments and who followed Me with all his heart, to do only that which was right in My sight;

9 you also have done more evil than all who were before you, and have gone and made for yourself other gods and molten images to provoke Me to anger, and have cast Me behind your back—

10 therefore behold, I am bringing calamity on the house of Jeroboam, and will cut off from Jeroboam every male person, both bond and free in Israel, and I will make a clean sweep of the house of Jeroboam, as one sweeps away dung until it is all gone.

—-

Isaiah 28: 14-19

14 Therefore, hear the word of the Lord, O scoffers, who rule this people who are in Jerusalem,

15 Because you have said, “We have made a covenant with death, and with Sheol we have made a pact. The overwhelming scourge will not reach us when it passes by, for we have made falsehood our refuge and we have concealed ourselves with deception.”

16 Therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, a costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed.

17 “I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the level; then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies and the waters will overflow the secret place.

18 “Your covenant with death will be canceled, and your pact with Sheol will not stand; when the overwhelming scourge passes through, then you become its trampling place.

19 “As often as it passes through, it will seize you; for morning after morning it will pass through, anytime during the day or night, and it will be sheer terror to understand what it means.”

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

» We decree and declare the devastation and restrains, that appeared to be permanent, are being reversed; the Lord is OPENING NEW DOORS and PROVIDING FOR YOU!

» We declare the ENTIRE LAND is in front of you: wherever it seems good and right for you to go, go there!

» We decree and declare the situations and people who have held you captive will RELEASE YOU and send you away with GIFTS and PROVISIONS!

» We declare the Lord God Almighty is SWEEPING through the Land and is removing those from government and business positions who oppose His design for this Nation. No one is able to HIDE from Him. We decree repentant hearts and opportunities for them to turn from their evil ways. Our God is a merciful God, His time for CHANGE and CORRECTION are right.

» We decree and declare that those, who have set up agreements with the evil one, are known by God. They think they can hide and avoid the JUDGMENT of the Lord Most High, but they are wrong. God’s justice and Righteousness are the basis for true judgment and His cleansing the Land.

» We decree HAIL will SWEEP AWAY the refuge of lies, WATER will OVERFLOW the hiding place, their covenant with death will be annulled and their contract with the underworld of death.

» We declare NOTHING is hidden from the Lord on High! He is revealing those who have thought they were hidden.

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

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

This Week’s Torah Portion | September 10 – September 16, 2017 – 19 Elul – 25 Elul, 5777


Nitzavim-VaYelech (Standing-Moses Went) – Weekly Torah Portion

NITZAVIM/VAYELECH
TORAH : DEUTERONOMY 29:9-31:30
PROPHETS : ISAIAH 61:10-63:9
GOSPEL : LUKE 24:1-12/LUKE 24:13-43

About the Weekly Torah Portion

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

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

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

In A Nutshell

The portion, Nitzavim (Standing), deals with Moses’ speech regarding the covenant between Israel and the Creator. Moses makes it clear that the Torah applies to the whole of the people of Israel, to every single one, and was given to posterity. Moses stresses the principle of choice: should a person worship other gods, he will be exiled from the land. But if he wishes to be reformed, the path is through repentance. The Creator allows the people to choose between life and death, but commands them, “Therefore choose life” (Deuteronomy, 30:19).

In the portion, VaYelech (Moses Went), Moses gives his final speech before the people’s entrance to the land of Israel. He reinforces the people so they will not fear fighting for the land because the Creator is with them, and he officially hands over the leadership to Joshua, son of Nun. Moses writes the Torah and instructs the people of Israel to assemble once every seven years to read the Torah. The Creator reveals to Moses that in the future, the people of Israel will sin, and commands him to write a song through which the people will remember the Creator.

Commentary

It may seem as though portions repeat themselves, but any repetition is at a new degree. The whole Torah deals only with the correction of the soul. It is as if the soul is cut into slices according to the degrees of the great will to receive, which is why it appears to be the same.

Similarly, each day in our lives seems to resemble the next, yet each day feels different, and life consists of many days joined together. The special thing about this process is that it is not about the people of Israel or the desert, but about an individual going through the stages of one’s spiritual development.

The spiritual development is done in two stages. The first is the preparation in Babylon, in the Bilbul (confusion). The second stage is in Egypt. In this world, a person tries to do as one sees fit, but gives up because this world is leading us into a state where we are not achieving good results in life. The result is a crisis, similar to the one the world is in today.

And yet, we do not seek the meaning of life, but money, power, respect, pleasures, freedom, vacations, and we are beginning to understand that it is impossible to have them. Whether due to personal crises or because of the global crisis, we finally come to the fundamental question, “What is the meaning of my life?” We seek satisfaction in life but we cannot find it anywhere, and without satisfaction we feel like Prophet Jonah, who said, “It is better for me to die than to live” (Jonah, 4:3).

We seek fulfillment, but we arrive at a situation where there is only one way, as we are discovering these days. Gradually, the whole world is approaching the stage of the question about the meaning of life. Due to the crisis, we are all facing a state of bankruptcy. Although it currently seems that only banks and large corporations are moving toward it, in truth, the whole world is faced with the questions, “What are we doing with ourselves, with our lives?” “What is it all for?” “What is going on here?” These questions lead us to the answer that everything is happening only so we may rise above the satisfaction in our own short lives.

While we are beginning to search for the real fulfillment, the eternal and complete one, above this transient life, we go through stages of inner corrections that lead us toward another life, to the spiritual life, the life of the soul. It is as though we acquire another body, an internal one, which is not made of flesh, but which is all desire. Our corporeal body, the flesh, is where that desire dresses, and it is called a “soul,” which we must reveal and nurture.

There are two stages in the development of that body: the first is called Moses, and the second is called Joshua. Moses is called the “faithful shepherd.” In that stage we rise to the degree of Bina, to bestow with the aim to bestow. It is a degree that is all bestowal, faith. The degrees where we acquire the quality of Moses, the revealing of the spiritual body, are called the “forty years in the desert.”

Following the revealing of the spiritual body—the Kli (vessel) of the soul—we work on filling it with light. We acquire the Kli, conquer the land of Israel, expel from there what is unfitting and undesirable, and fill our Kli with the upper light. This is the degree of receiving with the aim to bestow, the degree of Joshua. It is a higher degree than Moses, or in fact, an “improved” degree of Moses.

We advance in conquering the land (desire) by working on our egotistical will to receive, which opposes us and tries to fail us each step of the way. We get stranded, err, and constantly have troubles with the covenant. We must connect with the will to bestow and constantly choose life, as it is written (Deuteronomy 30:19), “Therefore choose life, that you may live, you and your descendants.”

We can acquire the additional, spiritual life, while we are living in our physiological bodies. It depends solely on our correction, on the extent to which we are immersed in the intention to bestow, on how filled we are with the upper light. When we obtain the upper light we are rewarded with eternal life. This is really our goal; it is the purpose of our lives here in this world, in our physical bodies. The knowledge of that used to be in the hands of a chosen few, unique individuals in each generation, but today the whole world is awakening toward it, and we will all need to reveal our souls.

The portions that speak of the entrance to the land of Israel mention Joshua’s new leadership, and new laws. Today the world is also moving into a new stage, new laws. Will explanations about it help or is it impossible to understand anything until we are actually in the new world?

First we need to recognize our helplessness, that deficiency, similar to the way it happened in the desert when we faced the entrance to the land of Israel but did not know what to do and feared entering it. Even prior to that, at the foot of Mount Sinai, there was a problem of great hatred, similar to the one that is threatening to burst throughout the world today, and pull us into a third world war, a nuclear one.

And prior to Mount Sinai we had to jump into the Red Sea and cross it despite the very real fear of death. Today we are feeling the same great obstacles, standing before us like impassable walls. And yet, the Torah always opens a door before us.

Baal HaSulam writes about it beautifully in a story about a man who sees a wall with a door. He approaches the door, opens it, and enters. In spirituality there is a wall, if you can put it this way because we currently do not see anything at all. We still cannot see what is separating us from spirituality. First, we discover the wall. When we want to break in, seemingly jump into it head first, we discover the door, we attempt to enter, and the door immediately opens.

We see this many times in the Torah: By the Red Sea, Nahshon jumped and the sea opened, by Mount Sinai, and in other cases. The thing is that we are required to “go for it,” to choose life, where for us, this is life, while the current life is death.

Moses Is the Dominion of the Sun; Joshua Is the Dominion of the Moon

“The Creator said to Moses: ‘Moses, do you wish for the world to change? Have you ever seen the sun worshiping the moon? Have you ever seen the moon governing while the sun is still present? Rather, your dying days have come; summon Joshua. Let the sun be taken and let the moon govern. Moreover, if you enter the land, the moon will be taken because of you and will not be able to govern. Indeed, the governance of the moon, Joshua, has arrived, and it cannot rule as long as you are in the world.’”

Zohar for All, VaYelech (Moses Went), item 12

These are two degrees. It is impossible to move from one degree to the next without completing the first. First, one must complete the degree of Moses, degree of Bina—bestowing with the aim to bestow. From it, one advances to the degree of Joshua, to receive in order to bestow. This is the conquest of the land, the entrance to the land of Israel—a desire that is aimed entirely toward bestowal.

In other words, the degree of Moses is “that which you hate, do not do to your friend.” The degree of Joshua is “Love your neighbor as yourself.” It is a higher degree, an extension of the degree of Moses. The next degree is always another step closer to the end of correction compared to the previous one, and Moses is the fundamental level of all the degrees.

What does it mean that the Creator informs Moses that the people will sin?

There is no other way. We advance only through sins, through the wicked that appear to a person. The Creator says to us in advance, “I have created the evil inclination.”

The whole of creation is the evil inclination. The evil inclination is ill-will, an egotistical desire, the opposite of the Creator. It is a desire to receive with the aim to receive, to be contemptuous of everyone, to exploit, steal from, and deceive everyone. The Creator does not hide what He has done, but explains that He did all that so we would correct ourselves and rise above that ill-will.

The wisdom of Kabbalah is the only one that explains to us how to correct ourselves. One who feels truly deserving of correction must do something with the ego, with oneself, one’s life, and find the fulfillment in life. This is when one comes to the wisdom of Kabbalah. Everything else we do in life is merely customs, but they do not correct us, or even reveal to us that we are bad.

Before Rosh Hashanah (Hebrew New Year’s Eve) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), a time of introspection and reflection, we say, “We have betrayed.” We say that we are wicked indeed, both toward each other and toward the Creator. But were it not written in the prayer-books, who would think that it was so? In fact, even when we read it in the prayer-books we do not really sympathize with it or feel that it is really so.

Why does the Creator have to command us to choose life? Who would choose death?

Our physiological life and death are completely out of our control. Once we are born, there is no question that we will also die. But even the choice whether to be born is not in our hands. From the moment we emerge from the womb, we are beginning our march toward death. It follows that the command to choose life has nothing to do with the physical life.

Does the Creator pave a good path and a bad one, and then says, “Choose,” recommending that we choose the good?

Choosing the good indicates that a person is acquiring the spiritual life while still in this life. “Therefore choose life” refers to the spiritual life. The choice is whether to end life as an ordinary person would—at the end of the physical existence, having lived in order to serve the body, putting it to bed, bathing it, and satisfying its other needs—or to rise to another level while still being in the physical body. The Torah is for those who wish to ascend to another degree, as it is written, “I have created the evil inclination, I have created the Torah as a spice.” In that case, “the light in it reforms them.”

When a person comes to that Torah (law) of life, to eternity and perfection, that person acquires the additional life during this life. When that happens, that person does not die even when the body does.

These days we are beginning to feel a little bit like one people. We empathize, and we are beginning to deliberate. Are we faced with a very big move we will have to take?

Now is the first time in history that people do not know what to do with the world. We are discovering that everything we have developed over the years is gradually halting, becoming dysfunctional. We do not know what will work and what will not. Suddenly, everything “slips through our fingers,” and leaders do not know how to run the business, for all their knowledge and advisors.

Is this the wall we spoke of earlier, which we keep encountering in every direction?

Yes, we are discovering that the Godly system is beginning to appear. It is called, “the revelation of the Creator to the creatures.” When the Godly force—Godly quality (of bestowal)—appears, it is a system that we do not know how to handle.

Man is the evil inclination. Yet, all of a sudden the good inclination is appearing before us. However, we do not recognize it as good. We see that the world is global, integral, and everyone is interconnected and interdependent, but we do not want to live in it. This is the point where we discover that we are made of the opposite material. After all, the Creator says, “I have created the evil inclination” in you, and here a system appears before us that creates the good, where everyone is connected. If you try to adapt yourself to that system you will find life, “therefore choose life.”

Which Joshua do we need now?

These forces, Moses and Joshua, exist in all of us.

Is there a difference between how people searched thirty years ago, when each was searching personally, and how they search today?

Even when everything was fine, people still need to answer the question about life’s purpose.

But there is a huge difference because today people are not asking what we are living for; the crisis is coming to their doorsteps.

Even today there are people who come to study Kabbalah because they are asking about the meaning of life, the purpose of life, even though they are generally happy. They do not come because of suffering in their everyday life, but because of the emotional pain, since they are empty nonetheless. However, those who come to study Kabbalah are about one percent of the global population. The rest come because of the problems in their daily lives.

Assuming a person is from Japan, and has experienced the earthquake and tsunami, and then the nuclear disaster in Fukushima, would that person not ask, “What is going on here?” “Am I missing something?” Or, would that person simply be lost and would not know how to cope with the world, and anyone who sympathizes with him or her would feel the same?

Every nation, person, and every part in the world is treated differently. We do not know in what way because it has to do with “soul sentences,” but we will all feel the immense pressures that are pushing us toward the entrance to the network of connections between us, the global and integral network that is now slowly appearing, and to which we are not adapted.

Now is the first time in history that we must change and adapt ourselves to the ties that are appearing between us. Previously, we built egotistical connections between us however we wanted. But now we must work to the contrary. The emerging network is “telling us”: “You have to adjust yourselves to me, or you will not succeed.”

Moses encouraged the people to be brave because the Creator is with them. From where can such confidence come? Is it because we are marching toward a very bad situation?

It is the confidence. It is not a bad situation; it depends on how you look at it. Looking at what is appearing before us, we can see that it is salvation. We are being presented with a beautiful example, an opportunity to connect with everyone. The negative reactions we all feel, the suffering, mayhem, problems, and confusions are all so we will try to direct ourselves correctly through them, so we will try to adapt ourselves to our newly formed connections.

These new connections are the Creator Himself; it is the quality of bestowal appearing between us. Of course we hate it and reject it. We do not understand it, but it is Him. This is called “the revelation of the Creator to the creatures. These are really the days of the Messiah, when that light is gradually appearing, a light of bestowal drawing us from our egos upward.

But if a person has no point in the heart, you cannot talk to him before he suffers.

True.

What confidence can we promise? Can we say to him, “Wait, suffer a little more and then we will talk”?

No. Of course he must suffer, but here is where the wisdom of Kabbalah appears in order to explain the reason for the suffering. A person needs to suffer very little, like a clever child who understand and walks in the right direction after the first hint.

Our calendar guarantees that we will achieve all the corrections and abundance by the end of the six thousand years. The question is, “How much will we suffer along the way?” We can shorten these times by ourselves, and not wait another 220 years or so, but rather accomplish it in our current lives.

The end of the portion speaks about Moses being commanded to write a song, to prepare for Israel something that will remind them of the goal. What is so special about song?

The song is for the future, should Israel sin. It is not like the songs we know today, but a special connection between a person and the correcting upper force. It is a system of connections by which one evokes upon oneself the power of correction.

Even when one sins, one can be certain that the mechanism that Moses built in us will help. Moses is the force of bestowal within us. It is absolutely clear of reception, and we return to it when we sin, so it will help us reform ourselves.

Is there no connection whatsoever between this song and songs we speak of today, with rhymes and melodies?

Of course there is no connection between this song and the ones with rhymes and melodies. The song we are speaking of is like a book. A book is disclosure, a Megillah (scroll, from the word Gilui, disclosure).

So it is a spiritual mechanism, like The Song of Songs. The Song of Songs is not a song you sing. A musical piece truly has something about it, and a song evokes emotions.

Clearly, we have emotional expressions on different levels. However, here we are speaking of a special mechanism, such as King David, who wrote Psalms, Solomon, who wrote The Song of Songs, or Moses, who wrote the song. It concerns writing about a special mechanism of connection, which helps the next degrees that fall into sin rise again.

We read in Psalms, or The Song of Songs, or Moses’ song whenever we can take something in our hands, rely on something and thus advance.

The Creator commanded Israel to read it every seven years once they entered the land of Israel.

Seven years marks a complete degree: Hesed, Gevura, Tifferet, Netzah, Hod, Yesod, Malchut.

Once we are in the land of Israel and unite, will we still sin?

Yes, no doubt. It was said in advance. From the beginning of the portion we are told, “Do not be afraid to come in; there will be wars there, but you will be saved.”

Israel’s wars are only wars with our desires. It is not the land of Israel, where we must conquer seven nations, but our own seven Klipot (shells), opposite the seven pure spiritual qualities. The war is with our own will to receive, which is egotistical and is called a Klipa (shell). It is the evil inclination that we correct, and thus achieve the conquest of the land, as the desire turns into bestowal, into love of others.

The whole Torah is “love your neighbor as yourself.” This is what we must achieve. Therefore, the system that is appearing before us will eventually compel us, whether we like it or not. Unless we achieve unity with the whole world, to the point of loving every single person in the world, we will not be able to continue, we will have no bread.

The Locust ‘Plague’ of Biblical Proportions Strikes Earth

“Locusts invaded all the land of Egypt and settled within all the territory of Egypt in a thick mass; never before had there been so many, nor will there ever be so many again.” Exodus 10:14 (The Israel Bible™)

In addition to the recent hurricanes and earthquakes, at least one of the plagues of Egypt has returned as swarms of locusts descended en masse on two separate parts of the globe in recent weeks.

A plague of locusts attacked South Eastern Trinidad last week. “People are scared and are panicking because of the amount of locusts. I won’t say this is the first time we have seen locusts, but it is the first time seeing it in such a magnitude,” Chairman of the Mayaro/Rio Claro Regional Corporation Glenn Ram was quoted in the Trinidad Express as saying.

Ram said that the damage to crops has been limited by spraying, but the bugs are an incredible annoyance to residents, “getting into clothing, vehicles and anywhere else they can occupy.”

The residents of Trinidad are experiencing a taste of the eighth plague the Egyptians suffered when God was punishing them for enslaving the Jews.

For if you refuse to let My people go, tomorrow I will bring locusts on your territory.They shall cover the surface of the land, so that no one will be able to see the land. They shall devour the surviving remnant that was left to you after the hail; and they shall eat away all your trees that grow in the field.Moreover, they shall fill your palaces and the houses of all your courtiers and of all the Egyptians. Exodus 10:4-6

Trinidad was not the only location to be plagued by locusts recently. Huge swarms of locusts devastated farms throughout large areas of Southern Russia last month as well. Farmers were hard-pressed as the swarming insects devoured everything in sight. In one video, fisherman are seen struggling through clouds of locust, using nets to catch the bugs to use as bait.

A locust will eat its weight in food every day and swarms can strip entire regions bare but, for some (like the Russian fishermen), they are considered a mixed blessing . Locusts are, in fact, edible and considered a delicacy in some countries. While the consumption of most insects is forbidden under kosher laws, the Talmud identifies four species of locust that are kosher and permitted to be eaten by Jews. Since the identity of those species is in dispute, most Jews refrain from indulging.

It is important to emphasize that neither Russia nor Trinidad has Hebrew slaves and it would be an error to claim the appearance of the locusts was a sign of divine wrath. In a recent interview about the hurricanes that have struck America, Rabbi Yosef Dayan, a former member of the nascent Sanhedrin:“It is forbidden to attribute divine motivations to such disasters but an introspective process is clearly necessary.”

Locusts are not taxonomically different from grasshoppers. A plague occurs when species of short-horned grasshoppers enter a swarming phase in reaction to environmental conditions. The second half of the twentieth century has seen a dramatic decline in frequency, duration and intensity of locust outbreaks, making these recent attacks especially worthy of introspection.
