UPDATED December 24 2014
When GOD was going to destroy the 2nd Temple Rabbi Yochanon ben Zakkia went to Vaspasian the Roman Emperor and said “Let the righteous flee, and have a safe place of refuge in Yavnah”. At that time the government of Isreal was much like it is today a puppet state of western influence, and not a true Torah Nation.
A couple parsha back it said “ If you go to war in your land against an enemy who oppresses you, then you shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and you shall be remembered before Yhv”h Elohech”a, and you shall be saved from your enemies “ (Bamidbar 10:9) Meaning when evil is close we must negate it by loud spiritual service, real zeal in serving GOD. This is reflected by the action of Pinchas in our parsha. By the zealousness of his actions the judgment against us bringing death to thousands by a plague was stoped. The whole world now is threatened by Islamic extremists. This week the Muslims declared a Caliphate with the intention of taking over the whole middle east with in 5 years. and then on to impose Islam by force on the rest of the world. We daily are facing enemies in our Holy land now, so we are required to harness this zeal. We must do our best to fight off judgment by adding more and more to Holiness each day with greater purity.
In this weeks parsha the worlds most accurate astrologer Balak, who knew the times most efficient to curse others. worked with Balaam to try to curse Isreal. The Zohar teaches that Balak was a magician , Balaam was a sorcerer. A sorcerer’s power only in his mouth. So Balaam’s power was in his cursing speech from the the evil breath of his mouth. Balak is called “ the son of Tzipor” (bird) because he performed magic using a certain bird. Balak a greater expert at acts of magic than was Balaam.
But things did not work at all as Balak would have liked. This time Billam could not comply with Balak’s request. As a matter of fact the great magician Billam would be put in his rightful place. As we see GOD opened the mouth of Billam’s donkey causing it to speak, in a similar way He also put words in Billam’s mouth. GOD opened the eyes of Billam’s donkey so he could see an angel holding a sword standing in the road blocking their way, which Billam could not see. This man that Balak brought to slay his enemy with his words , is shown that he can’t even kill his own donkey. As Billam said to his donkey “If a had a sword I would slay you”. So why did Billam go with Ballak who, wanted him to curse Yisrael, after GOD told Billam “ You shall not curse these people for they are blessed” ?. He went becouse of self love. His blinding arrogance and pride would not allow him to say “I can’t do it”. We should learn from this also just how dangerous arrogance, pride and self love may be. Know, despite their evil intents GOD can turn the evil intent of the wicked to a blessing for Yisreal. Balak is a decedent of Lot, Billam was so delude that he thought though God would choose him to ta take the Jew out of Egypt. When Moses was chosen instead of him, He became very upset. Billam tried his best to curse Yisrael but all he could pronounce were blessing. We must never underestimate our enemies, but understand them from learning about them in the Torah. It is interesting that this prophesy of Moses in Parsha Balak is like a intelligence report from behind enemy lines. The Hebrews were not aware of Billam and Balak’s attack on Yisrael and their subsequent salvation from their hands. Everything was done “behind the scenes”. If it was not written in the Torah, in this parsha, even today we would not know about it. This comes to remind us that man fails to recognize miracles occuring all the time that God makes for us. If we were only aware of this constant showering of endless kindness to us from our blessed creator.
It interesting to note that Rabbi Auerbach teaches there are 4893 letters in Parsha Balak, 4893= 7 x 699 gematria Balak ben Tzipor melech Moab.
Midrash says Bela, the first king of Edom is Bila’am, and the father’s name Be’or supports this conclusion (this is probably referring to Gilgul-reincarnation). Now, Apparently, he was no longer content to harbor his hatred for the children of his great uncle Yaakov at the nationalistic level alone, he was now working even as a mercenary sorcerer, hiring out to to all who wished to invoke malevolence against the Hebrew people. Bil’am was one of the senior advisors to Par’o, together with Iyov and Yitro. Some of the harshest decrees of Par’o are attributed to Bil’am
Billam said the Famous words “How goodly are your tents, Oh Jacob, your dwelling places, O Israel!” (Numbers 24, 2-5) The secret of this the sages explain is that When Balaam raised his eyes and saw Israel dwelling according to its tribes. He saw that the entrances of their tents did not face each other and he said, “These are worthy to have the Divine Presence among them.” He saw that the Hebrew people acted modestly even in the way they placed their tents all the more so their behavior. It is this which has ensured the wondrous survival of the Jewish nation through out all the generations especially in exile. Such behavior Guards the Holy nature of the Jewish family. It is this, sexual purity and modesty which is the shield of the Israelites. Nothing has changed even today we still need to concern ourselves with the continuity of the Jewish family and the Jewish nation. The dominant rate of assimilation which is prevelant these days could only occur by the disintegration of the Jewish family unit. If you don’t like it through it out and get another. Thus divorce is previlant and the integrety of the Jewish family unit becomes no more.and so to the Jew. If we want to protect the continuity of Jewish tradition, and the Jewish people we must strengthen the family unit and invest heavily in it. Thus, following generations will feel that they have strong foundations and will want to build upon them by building the next courses of the nation.
Before departing Billam told Balak that he maybe able to destroy the Jewish people by making God angry at them. He told Balak to have the women of Midian seduce the Jewish men causing them to engaging in sexual transgression as this would surely arouse the wrath of God. This plan did work and resulted in a plague where 24,000 people died. It was these same 24,000 souls that were “gilgul” (reincarnated) as the students of Rabbi Akiva who died during the period of the Omer.
No matter how bad it may look. We saw this recently with The disengagement from Gaza and the destruction of the Gush Katif Jewish settlements. By this was created a pure terrorist state at Israel’s border. The Hamas takeover of Gaza fulfills Israel’s wildest dreams. The Hamas rule brands the Palestinians as terrorists, shows them incapable of statehood and hostile to Israel, and removes the peace process from the agenda. It is time the Israeli government stop supplying their sworn enemies with water, electricity and food. Let their patron state Iran build for them power plants and water desalination plants, instead of giving them weapons. Now is the time to seal the Palestinian entity off and deal with it as with enemy a state: ban Palestinian migrant workers, stop issuing any visas to Palestinians, block all shipments, and wage total war when attacked.
THIS PART WAS WRITTEN YEARS AGO AND SEEMS TO BE THE WAY IT IS (FLOTILLAS) , ALL MOST.
The “Nachash” is when Nakavah is alone. עזא“ל and עז“א are in the 2 heels of Leah which are in Ketter of Rachel. It is from here that seized Balak. Billam is swallowed in the heels of Leah in the Head of Rachel. Revelation of עז“א and עזא“ל are in the chest שד“י .1 The ”trefim” of Lavan were from lights feeding off the ”Sitra Achra” from the heels of Leah, from the “tref” of tevunah. When Rachel stole the ”trefim” Lavan lost his wisdom, nullifying the ”chitzonim”
The ”chitzonim” dont seize in Rachel only in Leah. Leah is not a parzuf alone but part of the back of Imma that fell to the “klipot” with the kings of Edom that died, because she is above the chest with lights of Chassadim covering “klipot” seize on to these lights, but in Rachel in the chest and below, there no lights are covering so nothing exposed for Klipot to Seize. The face of Leah faces the back of Z’a. Rachel is back to back with Z’a.1 From sin in Yisrael there is caused Rachel to be back to back with Z’a, because of klipot siezing in Nh”y.2
Lot is a “klippa” from the back of Z’a.3 Leah rises in Keter, and rachel rises up from the ”chizonim”.4 The 3rd world is in back, corresponding to the conclusion of Nh”y of Rachel. From there spreads out Lill”y. Rabbi Chayem Vital says ” these names I did not recieve from my teacher.”5 Nakavah is established in 4 sefirot and from them she receives her actual differences. They are 4 attributes of man the way he sits (Malchut) , walks (netzauch and hod) , leans (yesod), stands (Teferet). Sitting is recieving position, with no spreading out. Standing is ”maspia” (giver), here there is no interruption in flow of lights.6
The Rabbis in the Midrash, teach us Bilaam was a prophet, as great as Moses. They say, God had prophets in Yisrael and the nations. When God sent Moses to Israel, He also sent Bilaam to the nations. While Moses used his power for good purpose, Bilaam used it to gain power and wealth.
Rise to the level of Navua by making a markava to Teferet. There are 3 levels of navua. First level is from chitzonim (the otherside). This is when one’s thoughts are not their own but those of the otherside. This level is tuma (impurity) as Billam and Lavan. They go into pardes peek and tread on the shoots and blemish there. They peek and die. There are those who go in peek tread on the shoots blemishing them and go out. One must be careful not to do this. 2nd is returning to the land. Then one can begin eating the herbs of the field. All the prayers of man his actions and tikun are accepted through this herb and there is accepted all that they do below. As it is invited from above. So it rises above. Behold the secret of the 72 names. They are the secret of the hachalot. All of them open to man according to judgment on his actions. There are many kinds of herbs and fruits. They are one level upon another. Till the upper navua. With the herb of the field they can enter in peace and go out in peace. This is secret of the Nefesh. There is a level above this. It is the supernal bread of Binna. This is secret of the Ruach. This is Hidden in the sefirot. In the shadow of Yisrael is nourished Sucat shalom for us. This is as it is said “By the sweat of your brow you will eat your bread”. A level above this is Trumah it is of Nashama. This is the secret of navua braking forth, until the navua of Moshe. 7
It is written in the Torah ”there was no other prophet who arose in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face.”
Gather friends with shields,swords and lances this is the secret of unification to destroy klipot. So one must hurry to restore the 3 pillars.8
By this the “black” day the Balaks intended for Yisrael turn to a day of blessings. Billam was forced by GOD to speak blessing which lead to messianic revelation ! May we see “ A star go forth from Yisrael” with revelation of our righteous mashiach quickly in our days.And we will see our Righteous Mashiach quickly in our days!

Today’s Billam is the lying unrelenting media
Today’s Billam is the lying unrelenting media that is so badly biased that it borders on “absurd” . Their unending bombardment of negativity Giving the world a skewed distorted view and portrayal of spirituality and the State of Israel in particular.
They all love to make inflammatory remarks about us, that are ever so far from the truth the US – the EU, the UN, CNN,
BBC and the rest of the world’s sanctimoniously hypocritical “good guys.” ? They would like to destroy your self-identity and self-worth. Making you think that you are no longer unique and special. They do not want you to “know” that you have a Godly mission to fulfill. They want you to think that you are like everyone else. And that you should adopt universalistic values that change constantly . They would like to leave you with no reason to struggle in following in the way described in the Torah.
With this mission the “media of Billam” works, as Billam’s weapon was his word……………………………..
