DON’T YOU FEAR ME SAYS THE LORD-LOVE GOD

 

Devarim בס”ד

Near the beginning of our parsha We are reminded of the generation that all died in the desert because of the affair of the spies as it’s written ”And you came near me every one of you, and said, We will send men before us, and they shall search us out the land, and bring us word again by which way we must go up, and to what cities we shall come.” But after the spies brought back the evil report our parsha tells us concerning the people. “And you murmured in your tents, and said, Because the Lord hated us, he has brought us out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites. Where shall we go? our brothers have discouraged our heart”. For this sin of fearing the nations and not believing in GOD the whole generation was forbidden to enter the land, and as it says in Bamidbar “Your carcasses shall fall in this wilderness; and all who were counted of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, all of you shall not come into the land, concerning which I swore to make you live in it, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun”. We should have learned this lesson by now.

Fear only GOD.

The beginning of the mitzvah of fearing GOD is to know that ”Elokenu” is the ד“ו parzufim (masculine and feminine aspects of GOD). These are the Written and Oral Torah by whose ruling we were taken out of Egypt.1 Fear embraces humility and humility embraces “chasidut” (piety). So by fear of sin one gets all these qualities.2 All the time one is only occupied only in the simple meaning of the Torah they see themselves as poor and dead. The main part of the Torah is its secrets. One who has the fear of GOD without Chuchmah (Kabbalah) will not reach the ”midot” (attributes) of ”chassidut” (piety). Fear of GOD is Chuchmah, turning away from evil is Bina.3

If a man gives his heart and dat to the fear of GOD, behold the letters of יהו”ה cleave in his heart. One who merits this has no lack. But if his heart lacks fear of GOD, the letters of יהו”ה are far from him. This is the greatest possible lack. This is what it means “Make Me a migdosh (temple), and I will dwell in them”. One sanctifies their heart so as to have dwell in it יהו”ה 4 The level of soul called ”Chayah” does not go out to a man except by receiving chuchmah. One who merits Chuchmah and dat their goes to him the fear of GOD.5 Growing in fear and ”Kidusha” as is proper this causes ”zivug” of Zu”n, and Abba with Imma to become complete as is proper. Through this is complete purification to man.6 When chuchmah is united to bina, the fear and awe of GOD can arise from the level of keter. Bina is called love but from chuchmah is complete love.7

Last weeks parsha said “But if you will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those whom you allow to remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall harass you in the land where you live. Moreover it shall come to pass, that I shall do to you, as I thought to do to them.”

So it is about time we stop this foolishness such as releasing terrorists as good will gestures. What could be a worse desecration of graves of Jewish martyrs who died in the Arab terrorist attacks than releasing terrorists as “good will gestures”? What could be a worse slap in the face of their grieving friends and relatives? The government spits upon the thousands of murdered and maimed Jewish women, children, civilians in order to stage a ”peace process show”

American President Obama throughout his term has wanted to force Isreal to give their land settled cities to their enemies who wish to send rockets upon central Israel and kill all the Jews. We must stop this government’s evil cowardly retreat from Yuhuda and Shamron. The disengagement from Gaza and the destruction of the Gush Katif Jewish settlements has created a pure terrorist state at Israel’s border. How many more such enclaves do we need ? The Israeli establishment plans to demolish more Jewish settlements and evict more Jews from their homes before transferring the territories to Arab rule. International law doesn’t justify such moves. Forced population transfer is a war crime. Forcible transfer is a form of ethnic cleansing. The International Criminal Tribunal convicted Yugoslavian officials for exactly the crime Israelis committed in Gush Katif. Instead lets get rid of the terrorists not nurture them. It by no means is our responsibility to provide the Palestinians with water, electricity and humanitarian aid. But it is the primary responsibility of the government to protect it citizens. So we must as it says in the verse “drive out the inhabitants of the land”, we must deal with the terrorists as enemies as is proper. Not with ”good will gestures”, and only receiving evil in return. Remember as it says in our parsha ”GOD Elohecha gives you this land as inheritance”. Then we can come to see the fullness of our inheritance with the Bait HaMikdash built and our righteous Mashiach (Messiah) quickly in our days.
Amen !
 
The Vilna Gaon teaches that the last ten Parsah of the Torah hint to what will happen during the last one thousand years of history. The Vilna Gaon explains that the spiritual root of the ten Torah portions of Devarim is in the ten Sefirot of the world of Asiyah. The history of the last ten centuries can be viewed according to understanding of ten Sefirot that direct Hanhaga (God’s providence) over the universe, in its corresponding century.Keser – Crown, Chochma – Wisdom, Bina – Understanding, Chesed – Kindness, Gevurah – Strength, Tiferes – Harmony, Netzach – Perseverance, Hod – Splendor, Yesod – Foundation, Malchus – Royalty.The projections of these Sefiros are in everything including the human body. Even though some knowledge of Kabala will enhance the understanding of this booklet, such knowledge is not required. One can learn a lot from this article even without it.

Let us study the history starting with year 5000, i.e. 1240 by secular calendar. According to the Gaon’s arrangement we have the following correspondence:

Parsha Sefira  Jewish year  Secular year

Devarim  Keter 5000    1240-1340

Vaeschanan Chochma  5100-5200  1340-1440

Ekev Bina 5200-5300   1440-1540

Reay Chesed   5300-5400  1540-1640

Shoftim Gevurah 5400-5500 1640-1740

Ki Setze Tiferes   5500-5600   1740-1840

Ki Savo Netzach     5600-5700 1840-1940

Nitzavim-Vayelech Hod    5700-5800 1940-2040

Haazinu Yesod             5800-5900 2040-2140

VeZot HaBrachah Malchus    5900-6000 2140-2240

Nitzavim and Vayelech are considered one Parsha thus, there are 53 Parsha in the Torah, like the gematria of the word “Gan” – garden. If we were to consider Nitzavim and Vayelech separately, we have a total of 54 Parsha.

Parsha Nitzavim and Vayelech.

Terrible curses continue being described in the beginning of this Parsha. Such expressions as “Sulfur and salt burned all the soil … like the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah …” may well be hinting also to the devastation caused by the continuation of World War II.

After the terrible curses are described, the Torah predicts our return to Hashem and renewal of the observance of commandments. This passage is speaking to our generation. In the previous generations some people left traditional Judaism, and their descendants continued the downhill slide and assimilated even further. The concept of return to Torah observance was virtually unknown. In our day this is quite common. People who were born into families with completely irreligious backgrounds come back to Halachic Judaism and they often succeed in bringing their parents along with them.
