Shvi shel Pasach
On Seder night a conception take place and Shvi shel pesach is the birth.
Moses worked with 72 three letter Divine names at the Red sea and the sea parted then the Children of Israel walk on dry land in the midst of the sea !
Avraham Abulafia teaches that if your heart runs return it to it’s place, by this is cut a covanant. By this way there is recieved 72 names.1 This is the unification of right and left. The Ar’i explains it this way in Shar Mimori Rasb’i Supernal angels at midnight rise up to the upper supernal angels, and enter the ”penimi” (internal) aspect of holiness of bina (Divine understanding) and intellect. “Penimi” of the sefirot is portions of the “Nashama” (Soul of Divine intellect). Opposite this is the “chitzon” (external energy) this corresponds to the physical body and Angels. Midnight is the spirit of all spirits. The Nashama is able to rise above with zu’n (source of Animal and emotional soul) through self sacrifice in ” kidush” Hashem (Sanctifying Gods name). By this one draws the vessel from imma (source of Soul of Divine intellect) of his Nashama. This is from the 216 letters of the 72 names. This is the vessel made at midnight.2 ”.
The 32 paths are from the Yesod (foundation-gateway of energy) of nature. They make 248 limbs (bones in the body). They are the secret of רי”ו (216) with 32 equals 248.3 The surrounding fire on Sinai was chasmal (source of revelation of voice of God). Chasmal is given to deliver these inside, from those not proper. In Chashmal are 4 punishments for the wicked from the 4 letters of אדנ”י . One who is proper comes close by the ד of אדנ”י, others rise in the נ. 216 letters of Givurah (severity) burns in fire to push away those not proper.4 72 colors are 70 of the sanhedrin with Moshe and Aharon. These illude to 7 sefirot each including 10. Moshe and Aharon illude to their source being the secret of 9 tikuney dikna (conduits of Divine will and Mercy). 7 include 10 and 2 are the source of all.5
60 is awakening of the first masiach (Messiah). In 6 more is the awakening of the 2nd. This leaves 6 more years until 72 (it is now 5769, or maybe its 72 years since the birth of the state of Isreal). At that time the redemption will take place.
According to the Zohar on page 119a of Vayera: The redemption of Israel will come about through the mystic force of the letter vav (in Hashem’s name), namely in the 6th millennium, and more precisely, after 6 seconds and half the time that remains. This is the Zohar’s way of saying the 666th year of the 6th millennium, 6 ½ months into the year. This of course is the first day of Pesach which is 6 ½ months after Rosh Hashana. 6 ½ days later is the seventh day of Pesach.
The year 5666 was 2/3 of the way through the 6th millennium, from that point onward Mashiach can be coming at any time. So the Rebbe Rashab instituted four cups of wine at the meal for Mashiach as part of the third meal for the afternoon of the last day of Pesach.
There will be 4 redemptions corresponding to the 4 “Chayot” (angels).6

PROPHESY IN THE MAKING NOW !
Rabbi Eleazer said, in the future the children of Yishmoyel will measure out the land of Israel. They will change a cemetery to a resting place of sheep and a dunghill. He will hew down the rock of the kingdom, and rebuild the desolated cities and sweep the ways. They will plant gardens and parks and fence in the broken walls of the Temple. They will build a building in the Holy place. Two brothers will arise over them, princes in the end, and in these days the branch of David will arise. Three wars of trouble will the sons of Yishmoyel fight in the latter days. One will be in the forests of Arabia, another on the sea, and one in the great city of Rome. This war will be more grievous than the other two. From there The Messiah of the house of David will flourish and see the destruction of these and those. Then he will come to the land of Israel as it says,” Who is this that comes from Edom with dyed garments of Bazrah ” (63:1)1.
The Zohar says concerning this verse that it describes what is equivalent to the killing of the first born in Egypt. Hashem will come from Bazrah. Just like the world’s hosts went to war against Yerushalym from Bazrah (1st Temple). The children of Edom threw down the walls of the (2nd) Temple. Hashem will put on robes of Vengeance to punish Edom. The mountains will be filled with the dead of the nations. 2 In Pesicta, Rabbi Brachyah tells us this verse refers to the fate of Edom’s (Rome’s) heavenly counterpart, God will one day put on garments of vengeance to chastise Edom for having destroyed his house and burnt his temple and driven the community of Israel into the exile of the nations. Beasts shall feed on the bodies of the slain of the nations on the mountains of Israel for twelve months, and the birds shall feed for seven years.3
” Who is this that comes from Edom with dyed garments of Bazrah ”
The sages say this verse brings the conclusion of the war of Gog and Magog and the coming of Mashiach.
As at this time almost all of Iraq has been taken over by the Islamics calling them self IS (the Islamic State) (NOT IS REAL), except Bagdad. If Bagdad falls Hundreds of American military brass will be killed by the hands of Islamic militants. And america will lose controll of their vested oil interest in Iraq.
The US will not let this happen , this situation may invoke the verse ,” Who is this that comes from Edom with dyed garments of Bazrah “
Botzra is the main oil port of Iraq

MIDRASH “YALKUT SHIMONI” ( Yeshiya 60 ):
“Rabbi Yitzhak said: The year that moshiach will be revealed, all the kings of the nations of the world will provoke each other. The king of Persia [ today called “Iran” ] will threaten the king of Arabia [ today called “Saudi Arabia” ] and because of this, the king of Arabia will go to the king of Edom [ USA ] for advice.
Afterwards the king of Persia will destroy [ most of ] the world. The remaining nations will be hysterical and frantic and fall on their faces and will be seized as if by “birth pains”.
And the people of Israel will be frantic and hysterical and they will say, where will we come and go? Where will be come and go?
And Hashem will say to them: Do not fear My children, do not fear. All that I have done, I did only for you. Why are you afraid? The time for your Redemption has come!
THE EXPLANATION OF THIS MIDRASH:
Rabbi Yitzhak said [ about 2000 years ago ]:
The year that moshiach will be revealed [ what is expected to happen in the world at the time when moshiach will be revealed ], all the kings of the nations of the world will provoke each other [ the threats of war among the nations will be heard in every corner of the world throughout the countries and between one another ].
SUMMARY OF THE DEVELOPMENTS
[ The numbers in parenthesis refer to further explanations found in the Hebrew ]
PHASE 1 (2) King of Persia [ Leader of Iran ] (4) will threaten (3) the King of Arabia [ threats of war against the king of Saudi Arabia ( which is the only Arab country which still has the name “Arabia” ).
PHASE 2 (5) The king of Arabia goes to Edom to get advice from them [ The king of Saudi Arabia goes to the Western countries, which are led by America, to consult about how to act against the threat of war from Iran ].
PHASE 3 “And King of Persia goes back (6) and destroys the whole world [ it is clear that you cannot destroy the whole world with conventional weapons. It means to annihilate much of the world with nuclear weapons ]. [ “and destroys the whole world”– the meaning isn’t actually the whole world, the meaning is “most of it, is as all of it”, meaning to destroy most of the countries of the world ”.
“And all the nations of the world will be frantic and hysterical and “falling on their faces” and will be as if seized by (7) something like birth pains [ a terrible and horrified fear that was unknown until now will grasp all the remaining nations – lest they too will die in a nuclear war ( because they will be unable to protect themselves from the nuclear explosion and the radioactivity that will result ) ].
And the people of Israel will be frantic and hysterical [ because of the terrible fear that will be in the world that Iran (Persia) will also attack Israel ]. And they will say, where will we come and go [ since there will be no possibility to find help or support and there will be no natural way to be saved – and about this situation it is said “we have no one to rely on except our Father in Heaven” ] and they will say: “Where will be come and go?” [ The Midrash repeats this twice to emphasize the helplessness and fear that will be then ].
And GOD will say to the people of Israel: do not fear my children [ you have nothing to fear , all that I have done, I did only for you GOD calms Israel, that all the destruction of war was only for your good – to destroy the wicked Kingdom of Edom and to remove evil from the world and make it possible for the moshiach (Messiah) to be revealed and begin his work ]. Why are you afraid? “The time for your Redemption has come!”
CAN WE SEE THIS HAPPENING NOW?
In order that one should not think these words of the Midrash are incompatible with the reality of our days, it is important to clarify what often appears in the media regarding the “King of Persia” ( President of Iran ) and about their “mahdi”, their messiah. To them, their mahdi can only begin his work of world domination for Islam when the muslims set the world on fire via war.
The current president of Iran since his election has declared several times in public, that the main purpose of his government is to promote the arrival of the “mahdi”, and for this purpose all military and economical resources will be given. He also said in the UN General Assembly (September 25, 2007) that very soon the powerful Western countries will fall and be destroyed. Daily he goes to the well where their mahdi is supposed to emerge from, to conquer the world. There is drops in the minutes of his days activities for their mahdi to read.
According to his belief and the belief of the radical cult that he is part of, the way to bring “the mahdi” ( the shiite “messiah” who is supposedly, according to their distorted beliefs, going to impose the region of Islam on the whole world ) is by creating a situation of chaos with local and international destruction. That is why the President of Iran says they must ignite a local war and then destroy the Western world ( which in his opinion is the root of all evil, thus they call the USA their “great satan”, and Israel is to them only their “little satan” ) using nuclear bombs.
This threat isn’t just an ideology or idle talk. Iran has nuclear weapons programs, and long range missile programs for delivery of same, including a newly discovered site which crosses all red lines, see http://www.wnd.com/2013/03/iran-confirms-secret-nuclear-quds-site/ and even members of the US congress are now concerned, see http://www.israpundit.com/archives/53731
As it is known today, the government of Iran is made up only of people of this cult who believe in their “mahdi” ideology. Whoever doubts this is dismissed from the government ( as was the commander of the Iranian revolutionary guards; he was removed from his position and replaced by someone supposedly loyal to the President of Iran’s mahdi / world war plans. ). And let us not forget that for true muslims to lie to their infidels = everyone else / everyone not muslim, its a permitted thing, to them = the ends justifies the means = wild ass of a man.
An interesting item that appears in the media: astrologist’s see something amazing: very soon the Western world will be destroyed by Iran by nuclear weapons ( this corresponds to the words of the Midrash above ). To differentiate, lately there have been a few tzadikim in our generation who also say that soon there will be a nuclear war outside of Israel, and in Eretz Israel will be the “selection” that was foretold in the prophesy of Zecharia (13:8) and Isaiah 6 ( “v’od ba assirya etc” – see gamara ketubot 112b ) by an earthquake, terrifying in its power, unlike anything known in the past.
In view of all this, it is clear that the words of this Midrash: “and the King of Persia returns and destroys the whole world” should be taken seriously and in light of ongoing world events, it is possible that this will actually happen in the time ahead.
There is also another striking event related to this in the words of our Torah Sages of 2000 years ago ( in Yalkut Shimoni ) “Rabbi Barchiya said: in three hours in the future HaKadosh Baruch Hu will punish Esav and his men.” Thus our Torah Scholars tell us here that the destruction of the evil Kingdom of Edom will be accomplished “in three hours”.
It is very possible that a nuclear war, as mentioned above, could last only 3 hours and in that time, the evil Kingdom of Edom could be destroyed. It is known from our sages [ Malbim, Abarbanel etc. ] that today Esav is America, the countries of Europe and the West.
NOTE: When the Midrash says “and destroys the world”, it doesn’t mean “the whole world, literally”; it means according to the Talmudic axiom “most of it is considered as all of it”. One can understand the words of the Midrash from the prophesy of Zecharia (13:8) “and there was throughout Land the words of Hashem”, “two parts [ of the world ] will be cut off and destroyed and a third of it will remain”, which means two thirds of the population of the world will die. Only a third will be left.
All this is regarding the nations of the world as it says in the commentaries there. However, concerning Am Israel, G-d forbid, the situation could be even worse if we don’t do tshuva, as it is written in the gemara ( ketubot 112b ). Rashi explains there “when nine parts ( of Am Israel ) will be lost and nothing will be left but a tenth”. Meaning that in the selection process that will take place before the arrival of the moshiach, 90 % of Am Israel will die , G-d forbid , if they don’t do real repentance and only a tenth will survive.
WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM ALL OF THIS?
We can see that we are very likely right before a third World War, the like of which has not been known in the past, which will start because of Iran. As we saw clearly the Prophets and Torah scholars of Israel predicted this thousands of years ago. According to their words as we explained above, the war will develop in 3 stages, one after the other:
Phase 1 – Iran threatens and provokes the king of Saudi Arabia.
Phase 2 – The king of Saudi Arabia goes to the countries of the West [ lead by America ] to get advice how to protect themselves.
Phase 3 – Iran opens a nuclear war and destroys the Western world.
( It is possible between these phases there will be only a few hours )
WHAT EACH OF US CAN DO
Now everyone has an opportunity and can choose the direction in which he / she is headed and decide where his / her loyalties stand. He / she can choose between the good and the bad, between life and death. He / she can choose between complete loyalty to the Creator of the World and abandoning himself / herself to the dangers of death, G-d forbid ( if he / she continues to act according to his / her desires and follow the vanities of this world ).
Whoever wants to save himself / herself and family, the path they can take to be saved God willing: to accept upon themselves real repentance. repentance of the heart, and make a true accounting as they have never done before, on all their deeds until now (as many as they can remember) and then:
1. Regret every sin that he / she did against the will of God and every positive command he / she avoided doing, .
2. Confess all to God with as much tears, sorrow and regret as possible.
3. Accept upon himself / herself that he / she will be faithful to the Creator, will “go in all His ways”, with all his heart and not go back to his / her evil ways – see parsha Eikev, Deuteronomy 10: 12-13.
4. Of course, if one fails and falls again, then he / she must immediately get up and start anew, and he will be saved God willing, and merit to greet moshiach at the most opportune moment, Amen.
My thanks and appreciation to those who helped in the preparation of this

Filed under: ANIMAL SACRIFICES, corbonot, PARSHA VAYIKRA | Tags: PARSHA VAYIKRA
Bs”d UPDATED March 14TH 2016
The Chesed LaAvraham teaches that Vayikra has 172 chapters corresponding the 172 words in the 10 commandments. One who occupies in this part of the Torah has 172 blessings. It is like they have fulfilled all the commandments.
This weeks parsha explains the ritual aspect of many “corbanot” (sacrifices) that are made in the Holy Temple, may it be rebuilt quickly in our days. The idea of “corbonot” (animal sacrifices) seems very strange for us in this generation, almost two thousand years after the Holy Temple was destroyed and the last “corbonot” were brought. Indeed the concept of “Korbonot” is a very lofty spiritual idea but we are just too removed from it, to appreciate it. “Real” contact with “corbonot” can be felt by reading the Neviim (Prophets, Shoftim, Shmuel, Melachim and the later prophets). Bringing “corbonot” for our ancestors was almost like praying for us. Know that “Corbonot” were brought together with prayer. We brought a “corbonot” to achieve closeness to God. In this, “corbonos” are not any different from the other “mitzvos” (commandments). All commandments are given for this purpose.
Learning the “corbonot” now works like bringing them. As the Prophet Hoshia says “Take with you words, and turn to the Lord; say to him: Forgive all iniquity, and receive us graciously; so will we offer the words of our lips instead of calves.” (chapt 14) “corbonot” were brought from three types of animals bulls, sheep and goats, from two types of birds pigeons or doves there also were “corbonot” of flour from wheat or barley and of wine.
The “corban Olah” (Burnt offering) was completely burned on the Alter. It was brought voluntarily to achieve atonement for the sin of evil thoughts. There were also types of obligatory “Olah” brought by individuals on holidays.. There was also community “Olah” brought twice daily and on Shabbot.
“Shlamim” (Peaceful offerings) were brought voluntarily and most of it was eaten by the owner, his family and friends and whoever else was invited. The meat was eaten within the Jerusalem before the end of the next day. A small portion of the animal was given to Cohanim who could eat it with their families. “Corban Todah” (Thanksgiving offering). Is a type of “Shlamim” brought for when one traveled in the sea, crossed deserts, people who were sick and recovered and the ones that were imprisoned and released. These four all brought a “Corban Todah”
It is brought with 40 breads of 4 types of ten loafs each. 3 of breads were of different types of “matza” and the last kind is “chametz” (leavened). The amount of “chametz” bread is the same as for all of “matza” breads since each loaf of “chametz” is three times as big as a “matza” bread.
“Chatat” (Sin offering) and “Asham” were “corbonot” for various sins. These “corbonot” were eaten only by Cohanim. “Chatat” was generally brought when a person accidentally broke a commandment, which has a penalty of “Corait” (spiritualally being cut off from the Jewish people) when a person did the transgression intentionally. The “corban Asham” were brought for when uncertain of guilt, a person thought they may have sinned but were unsure. (Leviticus 5:17-18). A “corban asham” was also brought for theft, for profane benefit from sacred things, violation of a enganged women, a “Nazir” at the end of his period of Nazariteship, the leper bring a “asham” when he has been purified.
After I graduated University I began to seriously explore my interest in spirituality. When I looked at Judaism. Naturally the first book I read was the Five Books of Moses. Genesis and Exodus were pretty interesting. But then I got to Leviticus and saw page after page of animal sacrifices !
“Wow,” I remember thinking to myself “This is really crazy stuff!! Once upon a time they actually did these bloody rituals, it’s obviously obsolete today! Don’t any of those Orthodox Rabbis know this?
It all made no sense, little did I know that the greatest of Divine secrets are involved with the sacrifices.
In the temple of king Solomon a fire would come down from heaven to consume the daily offerings on the alter. Yet we still made a fire below. There is a verse in Thillim (Psalms) “Happy is the man whom you choose, and bring near.” (Psalm 65). In the Holy Zohar it explains ; who are those that Hashem brings close ?. It is those who first take a step in that direction. We can see Hashem demands a action below by us, we see this in man making the fire on the alter. In order to raise your self up and the world we must do something of Divine service then God will respond in kind, with great mercy. We learn from the Zohar a sacrifice is called in Biblical Hebrew a “corbon” from the same root as the word “corov” which means closeness. In Beor Esser Sefirot העטרת (the Crown) is called heart it is the place in the beginning of all tefilot (prayers). The הקרבנות (the sacrifices) are in עליוןלב (the supernal heart). This is the din (judgment) concerning tefilot. As this prayer is as a קרבן which purifies and brings one קרב (close). We can learn a lot from the Temple service. Dont take benefit of a mitzvah (commandment) before it is complete (dont create a incomplete mitzvah or lacking compared to what you are capable of). This is as if a Cohen were to eat from a sacrifice before he had completed his required Divine service with it. Do the mitzvot in a way of כבוד (honor) due to the Holy king. Dont enter into doing the Mitzvot in a light headed way. By comprehension of the mitzvot one comes to be careful with their fulfillment as then they understand that the mitzvot involve Holiness. Then they will do them with all their power, cherishing and guarding their kidusha. But if one enters to fulfill mitzvot with arrogance or not in a serious way they will not comprehend in truth “hashgacha” (divine providence), or see the way of the Mitzvot.1 Like a sacrifice, Torah is offered as a gift to Hashem. In the Zohar Barashit it is taught During times when sacrifices were offered sin never clung to Yisrael as these offerings made atonement for them. The Zohar Vayikra teaches that the inner most alter was for Incense, it is the “small still voice.” (the Spirit of Holiness). The ark is Bina including 32 paths which is the source of the Nashama Yetera of Shabot which is Chuchmah , the fire of the Brass alter, it stands against the fire of Ghenom.2 The work of the Holy Temple will continue once again as we see from the Prophet Jeremiah: “ Behold the days are coming says YHVH I will perform the good thing which I promised to the house of Israel, and to the house of Yehudah. In those days at that time, I will cause an offshoot of righteousness to grow up for David and He shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Yehudah be saved and Jerusalem shall dwell safely and this is the name whereby she shall be called YHVH is our righteousness. Thus says YHVH David shall never lack a man sitting on the thrown of the house of Israel. Neither shall the Cohen and Levites lack a man before me to offer Burnt offerings and to burn Meal offerings and to do sacrifice for all days ”(33:14-18) The Radak explains ”offshoot of righteousness” this refers to Messiah. The Metsudat David says we will call the place of Jerusalem when this prophesy is fulfilled YHV”H is our righteousness. This depicts a little how dramatic this time will be to Jerusalem. The Metsudat David teaches us from the words ” do sacrifice for all days” that there will not be cut off the sacrifice because there shall forever be this service. God will return the Cohaniam (Descendants of Aharon) and all their aspects as described in the Torah into action again as in days of old In Marachot Elokim the main thing of גאולה (redemption) is in the night time so the corban pasach (pasach sacrifice) is only brought at night.
