PARSHA YITRO Bs”d

Updated Feb 25th 2018

  The “parzuf” (source of soul) of a person is recognized through the face of a person. This “recognition of their face testifies about them” (Isa. 3:9). This is like the shining of their Neshamah. The one who does righteousness for the multitude. Their “mazal” will be shining like the stars forever.

In the Zohar in Parsha Yitro is revealed how to identify the nature of souls by the outward appearance of the facial features, lines on the forehead and hand, their hair and other things. Yet to really read things like this one needs Divine inspiration to discern what they see. We can understand this by this story :

In the days of Moshe Rabbeinu, a gentile king, having heard of his leading the Jewish nation out of Egypt, splitting the sea, receiving the Torah. Desired to see how Moshe looked. He hired a skilled artist to study Moshe and ultimately paint his portrait. The artist presented it to its commissioner. The king took one look at the picture and gave the artist a slap across his face. “How dare you try to fool me! I am well versed in the reading of faces, and the picture you’ve painted is of a man who is of very poor character. Not only does he desire women, he desires to steal whatever does not belong to him. He also has the strongest desire for everything physical that I have ever seen in any one’s face. Am I to believe this is the great Moshe. This man who has the lowest morals I have ever seen. This man who has the morals of a pig. How can people utter His Name with such reverence?”

The King commissioned three artists and sent them into the desert to “see” Moshe and draw his picture. All of them sent back pictures with the same visage. One of a criminal and that is the best word to describe his face.

Finally the king intrigued, journeyed into the desert to behold Moshe’s countenance with his own eyes. To his shock Moshe looked exactly as the artists had depicted him. He approached the great leader and expressed his surprise based on his understanding of face-reading. “Why are you surprised?” asked Moshe simply. “Is this not the true test of man – to overcome his poor character and strive for greatness – not to be born into greatness?” From Tiferes Yisrael on Talmud Kiddushin 4:77. Many times things are not as they appear. Also know that Faces change slower than Hands. Other parts of the body change also. Some places change faster than lines on one’s face and some slower than faces, some faster then lines on one’s  hands and some slower than hands. Always consider that the person may have made repentance over their errors, but this is not yet reflected in the lines on their face or hands yet.

   Who is Yitro or Hovav ? this man has at least 7 names in  Torah and what has become of his people ?

It is written in the book of Judges, when Judah conquered its territory, we are told that  the sons of Keni (the Kenites) came along with them, explicitly called the clan of Moses’ father-in-law

“And the descendants of Keini, Moses’ father-in-law, went up from the city of palm trees with the sons of Judah into the wilderness of Judah, which lies in the south of Arad; and they went and lived among the people.”
(Judg. 1:16).

The descendants of the father in law of Moses, went up with the tribe of Yuhuda from the City of Palms to the wilderness of Judah; and they went and settled in the portion of land were there would stand the Bait-HaMikdash (The Holy Temple) four hundred twenty-six years after Yisrael entered the Land of Israel. 426 is also the numerical value of the word “וישמע” (and heard) which begins our parsha. Others among them settled in the Negev of Arad. The second Temple stood for 420 years.

In the book of Numbers, Moses’ father-in-law Hovav is identified as a Midianite. like the description of Moses’ father-in-law Reuel in Exodus 2:16, 18, and the references to Jethro in Exodus (3:1 and 18:1) But in the book of Judges is Moses’ father-in-law a Kenite,

That this Kenite father-in-law is the very same person described in Numbers as a Midianite is confirmed in the story of Deborah , which introduces us to a character named Hever, who is said to be a descendent of Moses’ father-in-law, Hovav:

“Now Heber the Kenite had separated from the other Kenites, descendants of Hovav, father-in-law of Moses, and had pitched his tent at Elon-betzaanannim, which is near Kedesh.”(Judg 4:11)

The description of Hever’s ancestor Hovav, identified explicitly as Moses’ father-in-law, as a Kenite.

The Sages in the midrash actually identify more possible names for him, adding Hever (from the Deborah story) and Putiel (Elazar the priest’s father-in-law in Exod 6:25) to the above five (Reuel, Jethro, Yeter, Hovav, Keni) to make seven, and attempt to explain them all.These different descriptions as Yitro’s descendents being Midianite or Kenite describe where they were from and where they were living as we find in midrash the the descendents of Yitro are called Kenite because the made a “ken” (nest) in the land. It should also be noted that there is also a people called Kenites who Yitro’s descendents lived amongst of them its written twice in the Torah concerning the Kenites are the descendants of Kain (Num 24:22), and, according to Genesis (15:19), they were already occupying the land of Canaan even before the time Avraham came to the Holy land.

The clan of Moses’ father-in-law Yetro, the Kenites and the Israelites were allies. As a descendant of Moses’ father-in-law Hovav, broke off from the rest of his clan and moved near Kedesh of Naftali, becoming an ally of Jabin, king of Hazor. Hever by making peace with Jabin King of Hazor, seems to be betraying his allegiance with Israel. The origins of this allegiance is based on the ancient relationship of Yitro (Hovav) the Kenite and Moses. A verse goes out of its way to mention this.This situations forces his wife Yael to take matters into her own hands and correct her husband’s bad behavior by killing Sisera herself.

teaches us that when HaShem spoke, the entire world heard His voice, Yitro too heard HaShem directly.

In our Parsha is the Ten commandments. The Ten Commandments begin with the Hebrew word  “Anochi” , which is a unusual word for “I”  Saying ” I am the Yhv”h Elohecha who took you out of Egypt”. This is to always remind us that the real “I” within us is the God , at least when we are nullified to Him, when his will is our will.  “Anochi” occurs 293 times in the Torah. The normal word for “I” in Hebrew is אני , this world occurs 698 times. All 293  “Anochi” should be learned out. When a person in the Torah is referred to as אנכי  with this we find “Bitul” (complete nullification to the Gods will). This “I” is a spiritual entity that was once sitting under HASHEM’s throne up in heaven, as that is from where your Nashama came from.

Yisrael camped at the East side of Mount Sinai. Yisrael were in total unity, as one person, as the Torah uses the word “Va-Yichan” (“ויחן”), meaning “camped”,  singular. They were one. Moshe went up on Mount Sinai in the early hours of the morning on the second day of Sivan.

In Devarim (Deuteronomy) it is written “ Yhv”h is a consuming fire ”. In this parsha we see some evidence of this as when Moshe was to go up to mount Sinai, Hashem had him tell the people not to touch the mountain, or go up upon it or gaze on GOD. We even see here the people asking Moshe to receive the revelation of the torah for all Yisrael as they say “lest we die”

On Yom kippor a goat is given to the other side to appease and occupy it so that the accuser on high does not bring accusations against Yisrael thus allowing Yisrael to do well. The Torah also tells us that one should not go to extreme Holiness discarding all physical pleasures, at least for most people. We are told by our sages of blessed memory that one should always leave a little something to keep the evil inclination occupied and then it will leave them alone so they may succeed in their goal of serving Hashem with their heart and all their soul. For as like with any animal, the “yetzer hora” (evil inclination), the animal soul will if backed into a corner will attack. For this reason we are told to leave something to keep it occupied, as we ascend into Holiness. This does not mean that we should, Heaven forbid, intentionally sin. But it means that by engaging in worldly matters we keep the animal soul occupied enough so that we can cleave to Hashem, ever so close. This is much like we read in the Book of Job when the adversary appears before Hashem on Rosh Hashanah. The Zohar tells us that as a dog is thrown a bone, so Hashem threw Job to the adversary. By this preventing judgment from resting on Yisrael.

The point of this all being that one should always in all their ways cleave to Hashem, but one must be aware as the Holy One is truly a consuming fire. One must approach at the proper pace. Now is a time that the lights are “closed”. During exile revelation of the Shechina from “yichud” (unification) guards and dresses the Shechina in fire. “Hashem is a consuming fire”. One needs words of Torah that are like fire. As words of Torah are as fire that consumes all filth. The “Yetzer Hora” is also fire, but the Torah is the fire that consumes fire.[1] The sitra achra (other side) can’t stand up to consuming fire, it becomes silenced and nullified to He Who formed them as a spark on the coal.[2] Yhv”h spoke to you face to face “out of the midst of fire” which was sent forth by wind and water. The fire, wind and water all came from the shofar at Sinai. It contained them all.[3] Now we will behold from the Zohar, as mentioned before how to identify the nature of souls by the outward appearance of the facial features, lines on the forehead and hand, their hair and other things. KNOW, That it does REQUIRE “Ruach HaKodesh” to clearly discern these things spoken of in the following words.

180) And you will behold and observe. “And you,” Divinity, “Will behold and observe it.” You and none other, to know and to look in 600,000. We should look at the forms of people in six discernments, and to know wisdom thoroughly. Those are the hair, eyes, nose, lips, face, and hands, meaning the lines in the hands. It is written about these six discernments, “You will behold.”

181) “And you shall behold out of the whole people brave men who fear God, men of truth, who hate greed.” “You shall behold” means in the hair, in the wrinkles in the forehead, in those eyebrows over the eyes.

“Out of the whole people” means in the eyes, in the corneas of the eye and in the folds under the eye.

“Brave men” are those who have the strength to stand in the King’s palace. They are recognized by the yellow in the face, in the face and in the wrinkles in the face, and in the inscription in them, in the beard.

“Who hate greed” means in the hands and in the lines in the hands, and in the inscriptions in them.

All six discernments are implied here in the verse, and they were given to Moses to observe and to know the hidden wisdom. The righteous of truth, as they should be, inherit this truth, happy are they.

182) “Clothe me with skin and flesh, and knit me together with bones and tendons.” Similarly, the Creator made degrees atop degrees above, hidden ones within hidden ones, and hosts and Merkavot [plural of Merkava (chariot/structure)] one atop the other. So He did in all those veins and tendons in which He made degrees over degrees.

These are the bones that stand in the sustenance of high degrees. And those of the degrees that are called “flesh” are the degrees and the domination of the end of all flesh. And all those who enjoy the smoke of the meat and the scent of the offerings, and others who dominate the meat. And above them all is the skin, the skin that covers everything.

183) As the Creator made stars and signs in the skin of the firmament to gaze at, meaning the signs of the heaven, to know wisdom in them, so the Creator made inscriptions and wrinkles in people, in the skin of a man’s face. They are as those stars and signs in the firmament, to know and to observe great wisdom in them, and to conduct the body in them.

184) As the appearance of the stars and signs change in the skin of the firmament according to the actions of the world, the vision of the inscriptions and the wrinkles change in a man’s skin according to his actions from time to time. These words were given only to the true righteous, to know and to learn much wisdom.

185) “This is the book of the generations of Adam.” From time to time, according to one’s actions, the inscriptions are born, inscribed, and change in him from time to time. This is so because when the holy spirit is within him, he makes offspring and shows the inscriptions of that spirit on the outside.

186) And when the spirit of holiness has passed and moved away from him, and the spirit of impurity has arrived, that spirit of impurity knocks within him and shows certain visions and inscriptions to the outside. They are apparent in him in wrinkles on the skin on the outside, even though the hair, the forehead, and the nose and all those signs remain existing.

187) ZayinReishHey PehSamechTzadi are essentially the five letters ZayinReishHey PehSamech, which are the letters of Ze Sefer [This is the book], and the Tzadi joins them because it is always interchangeable with those letters. The letter Zayin is something that stands in one’s hair. Zayin means Klei Zayin [weapons/arms], and Samson’s Klei Zayin were in his hairs, for in them was all his might. This is the crown of God over him.

188) Hair that is about to be recognized and hangs from above to below stands in the letter Zayin, and the letter Tzadi connects to it. It enters and brings out the letter Samech.

189) If these are hanging, black hairs, and there are three lines in the forehead on the right and two on the left, and they do not join one another (On the right are three thin inscriptions that pass over them, which are trails to go over those other lines. On the left are five lines, one of which is short), it stands within the letter Zayin and the letter Tzadi. Then you find strong eyebrows over the holes of his eyes, connected to each other.

190) This is an angry man, but not quickly. He detains his state of rest, pretends to be wise when he is not, and always raises his head to look. Outside, he is quarrelsome, but in his home, he is not. He does not regard the Torah, to observe it. People’s words are a burden to him and he responds to them vigorously.

191) But if the eyebrows are apart, touching and not touching, then you will find two big lines and one small one on the right side of the forehead, and two small inscriptions among them to their width. Also, there are two to the left, one big and one small, and one small inscription entering one and not reaching the other.

192) This one is angry. At times he is full of anger, and at times his anger subsides. He is quarrelsome in this home and is ill spirited. Once in his life, he responds vigorously to people. He looks down, his forehead is wrinkled when he is angry, and he is similar to a dog, then his anger quickly subsides and he responds softly. This is a man whose spirit and will are to engage in trade and to give all kinds of taxes to the king. In his efforts in trade he obtains wealth, for the letter Tzadi has been replaced with the letter Samech.

193) If the eyebrows are separated from each other and other hairs come between them, this one is always very vengeful. He is good at home and he is happy and sad with people. This one stands between the Tzadi and the Samech. He hides his money and does not want to be revealed or that his actions will be disclosed. He is stingy and his hairs are equal to each other and are hanging down. He does not regard himself so as to dress properly, what he wears does not fit him, his forehead is big, three lines on the right, four on the left, and two inscriptions come between them.

194) When this one speaks, he stretches the skin of his forehead and those lines are not very visible. He bends his head and walks. His right serves as left, and his left serves as right. He is always sad, gossips, considers himself smart in all his actions, and hateful toward those who engage in Torah.

195) If he has a black inscription on the left arm and two red, big hairs hanging in it, with four small hairs in it, straight and hanging, and they are neither red nor black, his forehead is neither big nor small. This one stands between the letter Samech and the letter Tzadi, included in the letter Zayin.

196) One big line in his forehead stretches across from one side to the other. There are two other lines but they are not so inscribed because they do not continue from one side to the other like that one line. Four small wrinkles stand between the two brows at the top of the nose.

197) This is a happy man. He is wise, clever, and generous with his money. He is savvy in everything he tries to learn, at times he is angry, at times his anger subsides, and he never holds a grudge. At times he is good and at times not so good. Rather, he is balanced—not the best and not the worst. When he repents before his Master, his Master holds him in His hand and he rises to great honors. Everyone needs him.

The letter Samech always goes to him more than the letter Zayin. All those who advise against him do not succeed, their advice fails, and they cannot harm him. It seems as though he is deceitful but he is not. The letter Samech and the letter Tzadi struggle over him, hence at times he ascends and at times descends. When he returns to his Master, the letter Samech wins and any wish of his is fulfilled. He is merciful and cries when filled with mercy.

198) He has one inscription on the right arm and his face stands without any hair on it. And if the hair is curly and does not hang below his ears, and they stand curly above his ears, this one keeps his word.

199) His forehead is big but not so much, its lines are five—three across from one side of the forehead to the other, and two are not across. He is confrontational, especially in his home, all his actions are quick, he seems good but he is not so. He praises himself with what is not in him. This one stands only in the letter Zayin and rises afar only in the letter Tzadi. He reaches and does not reach, and he has none of the letter Samech. He is lenient in his speech, but nothing more, pushes himself where he does not belong, and one who collaborates with him should be careful of his greed, but will succeed with him.

200) The hairs are hanging and are not smooth, and his hairs are many, with five lines in it that reach and do not reach one another. His eyes are yellow and open. He bows his head, seems good but he is not so, and if he engages in Torah, he is as a great man. He prevails over his inclination when he speaks, he wrinkles his nose and stretches the skin of his forehead, and all his actions are for people to see. He succeeds in wealth, he is deceitful in all his ways, he is a gossip and knows how to be watchful of people in everything. There is madness in him and he covers what he does so it is not apparent. He secretly brings disputes between people.

201) His ears are big and stand under the hair. This one stands in the letter Tzadi and the letter Zayin. For this reason, his actions are for people to see. If three hairs hang between his shoulders, without any inscription, anyone who collaborates with him does not succeed, and he succeeds with his deceit. He seems righteous toward others, who think that he acts truthfully with them.

202) If the hairs are wrinkled and hang under his ears, if he is without a woman, with one line in his forehead and three wrinkles at the top of the nose between his brows, he is a happy man, clever in all his ways. He is deceitful, lenient, and lenient toward those who come near him. This one stands in the letter Samech and in the letter Zayin. When he grows old, the letters will be replaced, the letter Zayin first, and the letter Samech with it. He is lenient only at home, successful with wealth, not deceitful, and strays from that way.

203) There is one small inscription on the left brow, which a man struck him in his youth. His right eye is blind, five wrinkles at the top of his nose to its width between his brows. His hair is a little curly, and he narrows his eyes. This one is only in the letter Zayin. He is unintelligent, there is madness in his heart, and his actions are with panic.

204) There is one line on his forehead and four other small ones. There is no faith in him, and he does not partner with people because he will not succeed. He is wicked toward his Master in all his deeds, and there is one upshot on his left thigh—at times erased and at times reappears. If there are four lines on his forehead, he has all that, but he has no upshot on his left thigh. If there are three big lines and three small lines on his forehead, in the middle of the forehead, then he has beautiful hair.

205) The forehead is clarified in the hair, and the hair is clarified in the eyes. The eyes are clarified in the hair to four sides: the pupil of the eye, the colors in the eye, the white in the eye, and the black in the eye. Each observation, to observe all those six signs in the forehead hair are only from thirteen years of age and on, when the spirit of Kedusha [holiness] has already been separated in the person from the spirit of Tuma’a [impurity], except in lines, since the lines, whether small or great, always interchange. They can be tested as to whether they are from Tuma’a or from Kedusha.

206) “Moses chose strong men out of all Israel,” since he searched for the other signs besides strong men but did not find any. Also, “Choose wise … and known men from your tribes.” “Known” means known by those signs. And find, he did not find any but the intelligent. This means that the merits of strong and wise men are close to one another, for here it writes, “Moses chose strong men,” and in Deuteronomy it writes, “And I took the heads of your tribes, wise … men.”

207) The eye is the letter Reish and the letter Peh where the brows are white and the hair is red. If his eyebrows are white it is a person of whom people should be wary. All his words are deceit, and he is shrewd and vengeful. This is only in the letter Reish. The letter Peh did not connect with him but goes and roams over him and does not sit in him. His eyes are sunken, he is quick in action, and anyone whose eyes are sunken should be watched in every deed. He is deceitful and with deceit he reasons his words.

208) If his forehead is big and not round, two big inscriptions stretch across the forehead from side to side and four little ones. His hairs are hanging. His mind is cool, hence he is clever. His ears are small, with much hair in his arms, spotted with spots of black inscriptions. If there are red inscriptions, he sometimes comes back to doing good and stays in it for a short while, and sometimes he reverts to his bad ways. He is greedy.

209) David’s seed is to the contrary. King David inherited this red, handsome thing to pass judgment and to do worthy deeds. His eyes are eyes of mercy, dwelling on plenty, raising grace and mercy, and one green thread goes between them. When he wages war, that thread becomes as red as a rose. When his anger of war subsides, that thread becomes as before. Great miracles were in his eyes: they were glad, they were craving to see them. There were points in three colors in them; there was joy of heart throughout the heart. The wicked that were looking at them trembled with fear and dread came to their hearts.

210) If his forehead is big and round with beauty, and all the letters are visible and rise in him, some rise and some fall, those that came down come up, giving room to these and to those. Hence, his inscriptions rise to the length above in his forehead. His eyebrows are mercy of mercies. They are neither black nor red, but rather in between those two colors. The pupil within shows all the shapes in the world, a red thread surrounds it and joy around everything.

211) In the beginning, when these wicked draw near to see the eyes, when those wicked see them they laugh, and there is compassion, grace, and mercy in them. Afterwards they see in them courage and fear, terror and anger. His eyes are as doves toward them. “Doves” means that they deceive the wicked, as it is written, “And you shall not deceive one another.”

It is also written, “Your eyes are as doves,” attracting those who look in them, and push them away. All the shapes in the world are included in his face. The hairs in his head were inscribed in colors of seven kinds of gold.

212) It is written in the book of Adam HaRishon, “The forms of the first Messiah, to the moon, which is Malchut, from David’s seed,” since the second Messiah is Messiah Son of Joseph. “His appearance is greenish gold in his face. His appearance is gold of Ophir in his beard. His appearance is gold of Sheba in his eyebrows. His appearance is gold of Parvaim in the eyelids. His appearance is pure gold in the hair on his head. His appearance is refined gold over his chest, in the plate over his heart. His appearance is gold of Tarshish on both arms. All those seven appearances were inscribed on all those places of the hairs.

213) On his right arm one inscription, hidden from people, was engraved and registered. It is a tower in which a lion is engraved, and a small Aleph is inscribed within it, as it is written, “On which a thousand shields are hung.” As long as he wages war, that inscription rises and protrudes, and this Aleph knocks on that tower. At that time, he grows stronger, to wage war. And when he engages in war, the lion knocks, and then he grows as strong as a lion and wins the wars, and that tower causes to run, as it is written, “The righteous, who is set up on high, shall run in it.” David was higher than his enemies, who could not defeat him. And these marks and those inscriptions were inscribed on the left arm. The inscription of another person is not like that. It is not as the seed of David.

214) If the eyes are yellow and protruding, there is madness in his heart. His forehead is big, his hair is plentiful and hangs down far from the skin of the head. He is intelligent, with a mouth that speaks great things. His lips are worn out and he gossips.

215) There are three lines in his forehead. If there are two red tendons in his eye, he is only in the letter Reish and there is an illuminating tendon with them. He had a chance to transgress but he was saved from it.

216) If there is one red tendon inside the eye, positioned to the length, with two small tendons underneath it, one crossing through his eyes, he has an ill intention about a woman who is forbidden to him, and the intention still exists. Then you will find a single line to the length of his forehead. A single hair comes out of the right eyebrow and four small black hairs below it, with one passing in between them across.

217) Should he retire from that sin, there will be two fine tendons in his eyes going across the eye, and another does not pass between them. It is similar in the forehead. And the time that was separated from that sin is regarded as up to nine days, since from then on these inscriptions will be erased and others will be born.

218) When the eyes are thin and become a little reddish, he is intelligent and all his words are in repentance. You will find three inscriptions in his forehead, one big, crossing from side to side, and two others that are not crossing. His eyebrows are big, he is stubborn, when he speaks he wrinkles his nose in his anger, or when he is cruel. He has a bad name, he is mean in everyone’s eyes, and everyone hates him. At times he succeeds and at times he does not.

219) There are three big hairs in his chest, over his heart. His lips are worn out, he is pride to the point of madness, and he is a gossip.

220) His hair is smooth, long, and plentiful. His face is a little long and a little round. At times he regrets all that he has done, then reverts to his bad ways. You will find two tendons in his right eye and one in the left eye. His ears are small and standing.

221) David’s arms are to the contrary: In David’s arms, all these signs are to the best, and to do good, except for the big lips, for anyone whose lips are big gossips, whether he is righteous or wicked, except if he is a complete righteous, for by his merit he triumphs and keeps himself from gossip.

222) If the eyes are green with a little bit of red color between them, there are two inscriptions in his forehead from this side to that, and one small one above and one small one below, he is in the letter Peh and the letter Reish. This one, his forehead is big, in a circle, he is good to all, gives of what he has to every person, he is lenient, his hair is smooth and hanging. On the right side, he has white hair from the day he was born.

223) Intelligent people of the world, whose eyes are open, who are wise, who are with faith—which is Divinity—which was concealed in you. Those of you who rose and came down, who received the lights that shine from below upward, which are called “ascent,” and the lights that shine from above to below, which are called “descent,” those that the spirit of holy God is in them, should rise and know that when the white head—Keter—wished to create man, he imparted within one light, which is Bina, and the light imparted in the expansion of the light, ZA, which sentences and illuminates the two lines—right and left of Bina. And the expansion of the light brought forth the souls of human beings.

224) Similarly, he mated and imparted the expansion of the light, ZA, into one strong rock, the Malchut, and that rock elicited one flaming blaze, comprising several colors, which is the Ibur of the moon, which is full of Dinim. And that flame rises, receiving Yenika, meaning that the lights illuminate in it from below upwards. And descends, meaning that the receives GAR of Ruach, meaning that the lights illuminate from above to below but in Dinim, due to the deficiency in Hassadim. Finally, the expansion of the light, ZA, bestowed in him, imparted in him a middle line and Hassadim, and then he returns and sits in his place and becomes the spirit of life to Adam HaRishon.

225) Sections were made in that spirit—the twelve boundaries of the diagonal that it receives from ZA. It takes one green color from the sun, ZA, descends below, and takes one color from the moon, Malchut, a color that receives from all the colors. It receives from the four animals—ox, eagle, lion, and man—in the lower Merkava [chariot/assembly].

It moves to the right and takes the color of water, white, included in the lion’s mouth, Hesed. It moves to the left and takes the color of fire, red, included in the mouth of one ox that is as red as a rose, Gevura. It moves forward and takes the color of the wind, green, included in the mouth of a great, big-winged and feathered eagle. All the colors appear in it. This is the color crimson, which includes all the colors, which is Tifferet.

It moves to the back and takes the color of dust, which receives from all the colors, included in the four directions of the world, HG TM, receiving from the mouth of a man’s face, to which all forms look, and it is Malchut.

226) That spirit settles in the dust and dresses in it, since the dust, Malchut, is the Nefesh of Adam HaRishon, and the Ruach dressed in Nefesh. Then that dust, Nefesh, shook, came down, and gathered dust from the four directions of the world, becoming one form and a Partzuf—the body of Adam HaRishon. The Ruach was concealed deep within it, and that dust that was gathered from the four directions, the body, the Nefesh bestowed in it when it was included in Ruach.

227) That Nefesh is a Yesod [foundation] for the actions of the body, as are the actions of that Nefesh [soul] in the Guf [body], so it appears on the skin from the outside. The Ruach [spirit] is hidden within and the Nefesh is seen without, rising, falling, and striking his face, showing forms and inscriptions; striking his forehead and showing forms and inscriptions; striking his eyes and showing forms and inscriptions, as it is written, “The expression of their faces bore witness against them.”

228) The light from which the measurement extended is the Masach de Hirik, which measures the level of one green thread, a middle line, which has a green color. It receives this Masach from the Malchut, the flame of Tohu—the fire of Malchut de Midat of Din [quality of judgment], which is called Tohu.

The light strikes the hands of a person when he is asleep, registering inscriptions and lines in his hands. And according to one’s hands, so it is written. Those letters invert in him from below upward, and those friends—the true righteous—know in the inscription of the letters of the light, Malchut, and all the forces in man’s face make inscriptions and lines and the letters invert.

One who writes it writes at the end of the tabernacle. Also, Malchut is called “tabernacle,” as it is written, “I was … wrought in the depths of the earth,” at the bottom of Malchut, called “earth.” She, too, is wrought by the power of the flame of Malchut de Midat ha Din, like man’s hands.

229) Eyes that are white and red pieces of flesh in the place where the eyes come out, in the holes of the eyes, and when he turns his eyes they are seen—this one is in the letter Peh and the letter Reish included together.

230) His forehead is big, three lines climb up his forehead, and six other small ones. He is red and not red, standing between two colors, and so does his hair. His face is big, his hair wrinkled, curly, and not so. They hang slightly below his ears. This one is good, one of faith, and with wrath when he is angry.

231) If that red beneath his eyes, in the holes of his eyes, spreads through his eye, his anger is evil. When he speaks during his anger, he shuts his mouth and smoke comes out of his nostrils. His anger subsides for a short while, but not all his anger for another day or two. This one sometimes succeeds and sometimes not. However, he always stands successfully, whether much or little.

232) If the red in the corner of his eye is as little as a thread and does not spread through the eye during his anger, and he has all those signs, he is of a faint heart, afraid of everything. Sleep does not settle in him, he always thinks thoughts, and is afraid of everything. He succeeds for all who collaborate with him; he is a corrupt man and does not refrain from adultery.

233) Sometimes he repents and fears, and out of the fear, that red in the corner of the eye will be at the very edge of the eye, and one fine red tendon in the left eye. If what is on the right and what is on the left exchange places, he still remains corrupt, meaning he has not repented. He breaks once more the piece of ice that parted between him and the transgression to commit the transgression.

234) There are two wrinkles at the top of his eye and three below. In the middle finger of the left leg are six hairs, and five at other times. Now there are six in him because there is one small hair between them. The eyes are black and his eyebrows are big, and there are many hairs in them, one atop the other. And those black and green eyes go within them, and the green are more sunken. This one has five lines in the forehead—two crossing from side to side, and three that do not.

  Before Rabbi Nachman of Bresslov went to Aretz Yisrael he went through a great preparation as is necessary for any ascent into Holiness. As it says in the parsa “Hashem took us out of Egypt on eagles wings”. So too we when doing mitzvot in order to attach to Hashem we must do them with great inner devotion which is brought about by great preparation. The sages say this preparation gives our mitzvot wings. Wings that bring us ever closer to Hashem. Ultimately preparing ourselves for the ascent from our course physical existence, to a brighter light. The desires that we create while we are in this world are what we take with us when we leave. So may it be that we will all look closer at our parsha seeing His holy name in purity and become the “am segulah” (wondrous people), the particular nation precious to Hashem above all peoples as it says “a nation of priests”, a “Holy nation” Seeing the crown of His Kingship resting in His Kingship over all mankind with our righteous Mashiach, the Holy Temple and a New song quickly in our days.

PROPHESY
December 22, 2013, 9:10 am
Filed under: Gog, Great Days, PROPHESY | Tags: , , , , ,

 

 

UPDATED june 21sT 2016

Dreams are 1/60th of Prophesy ! The vowel חולם “Cholem” is a “segulah” (wondrous power) for a חלם dream (Zohar Tikunim)

Prophesies are revealed in such a way, that their fulfillment depends on the future actions of people. Some prophesies are conditional, the sages say all the bad things the prophets say do not have to happen while all the good will come to pass. Those prophesies that had a sign given will definitely be fulfilled. Similarly, the lives of our fathers were a sign for their children, and they firmly established what will happen to the later generations. This is known that “Maasei Avos – Siman Lebanim” – what occurred to the patriarchs is a sign to their descendants.

 

Prophesies about the “End of Days” can be fulfilled in many ways. The Talmud says (Sanhedrin 94a) that if King Hezekiah and his generation had merited it, he would have been the Moshiach, while the king of Assyria – the predicted arch enemy of Moshiach – Gog, the ruler of Magog. Therefore we can only know what was meant by a prophesy after it was fulfilled, Prophesy is left ambiguous so to not interfere with our free will, thus allowing a number of possible outcome based on our marit or lack of it and Divine mercy. Hashem’s knowledge is not as the knowledge of a human being. Hashem is outside of time. Even though the future to a large extent depends on our actions or lack of them based on free choice, Hashem looks at history and predicts potential events. Prophecies are given in a way that they can be fulfilled in many different ways. Hashem’s  knowledge does not force the future, most of the time.

 

Prophets are from the side of Netzach and Hod. In them is included the two names which are יאהדונה”י . These eight letters correspond to the eight books of the prophets. Because the Torah was given through Her (the Shechinah) . God said to Moses, “You shall see my back” (Ex 33:23). No prophet or wise person is able to rise above without this. The outer keys are called her face, the inner face is the inner keys. if a person does not have the outer keys how will he enter inside, therefore it says, “This is the gateway to יהו”ה” (Psalms 118:20)

(zohar Tikunim)

    Prophesy is not just as a prediction for the future but also as a kind of “road map” for what people are supposed to do. It gives us guidelines for future history.

tHE HIGHEST LEVEL OF PROPHESY WAS PURELY AUDITORY WITHOUT ANY VISUAL IMAGES. gOD ONLY USES A PREPARED VESSEL TO DELIVER HIS PROPHESIES. GOD DOES NOT TAKE A FOOL AND MAKE HIM IN TO A PROPHET. TO RECIEVE PROPHESY ONE NEEDS TO DO THE PREPARATORY WORK.

pROPHESY AT THE END OF THE FIRST TeMPLE CEASED, BUT THE PROPHETS WHO WERE ALIVE AT THAT TIME CONTINUED TO PROPHESY. through OUT THE YEARS OF THE EXILE AND DURING THE BEGINNING OF THE 2ND TEMPLE PERIOD INCLUDING THE PROPHETS mODICHY, eSTHER, cHANANYAH ,AZARYAH AND MISHAEL. wHEN THESE PROPHETS DIED THERE ENDED PROPHESY BUT THERE WAS AND IS STILL REVELEATION BY THE HOLY SPIRIT CALLED “RUACH HAkODESH’

 

nO NEW PROPHETS AROSE DURING THE 2ND TEMPLE PERIOD

  PROPHESY CAN REVEAL THE FUTURE, BUT THIS IS NOT ITS MAIN PURPOSE, THIS VERIFIES ITS AUTHENTICITY. prophesy COMES TO INSPIRE SELF IMPROVEMENT.

SECRETS ******* OF PASSOVER-PASSACH

Passach

Pessach is Pretty important if we spell it out as

פה סמך חת=613 (all the commandments). The sages say Passach is a time for searching for a persons defects, like the way each person must search their house for “chumatz” (leaven). God illuminates our Nashama (Soul) so that we may see ourselves clearer. Like the way we use a candle to search for “Chumatz”, and a candle represents the “Nashama”. As it says “ the candle of God is the Nashama of man”. It states in the Zohar that from Rosh chodesh (New moon) of the month of Nisson there is an increase in “Bina” (Divine Understanding). With this power we can search within ourselves and see what it is that is causing our exile from GOD, Divine revelation. So that we may return to GOD completely. ”Chumatz” is not nullified like most things even when there is less than 1 part to 60. Any “chumatz” (which is arrogance) cannot be tolerated. How could one be arrogant if they really knew they were standing before GOD ?. An arrogant person performing religious acts is only a “charade”. They have not even begun the kind of Divine service that leads to ”ruach haKodesh”, and redemption. One must be completely dedicated to GOD not themselves. The Temple offering for Passach the “corbon Pessach”, May we bring it quickly, is roasted whole, including the head and tail. This shows that returning to GOD, Leaving our personal and National exile requires returning to GOD from all aspects of our existence. One must dedicate all aspects of their life to GOD, Blessed is his Name ! Every individual goes through his personal exile, and must separate from those things that bind him from coming close to GOD. Those things which are strange and not part of his divine service. We must do this in all aspects of our life, thus removing ourselves from our personal Egypt (which means confinement), by this fulfilling in part the commandment of remembering the redemption from Egypt. It is stated in the Zohar that “The remembrance of being taken out of Egypt with great miracles is the gateway to divine power, a root of the whole Torah, the basis of all the commandments and the real “emuna” (faith) of the Jewish Soul”. Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochi says “ this is our season of joy and gladness when we celebrate the great honor GOD showed to us by taking us out from under the power of impurity into the power of his Holiness.” It is the day as R. Abba says “ GOD took Yisrael from being under the power of impurity to be united with his name, causing them to be raised up above all the upper and lower beings”. The Sni Luchot ha brit teaches that the day the angels visited Avraham before the destruction of Sidom and visited lot in Sidom was Passach.

  The sages tell us one reason for the exile of Yisrael in Egypt was because when GOD told Avraham Avinu that he would give his decedents the land of Canaan as an eternal inheritance Avraham misused his power of speech when he replied “ How will I Know ”. Because of this lack of faith we went down to the refining furnace called Egypt. Now on Pessach we have the power to redeem the power of speech from exile. We do this by with great joy and excitement and a high heart telling the story of the redemption from Egypt, till the point G-d willing they remember. The Zohar says one who does this will rejoice with the Shechinah in the world to come for rejoicing brings rejoicing. The Oar Ha Chayim teaches that we bring redemption closer discussing Holy matters celebrating the redemption of speech. By remembering the great love GOD showed to us in redeeming us from Egypt we can draw strength to know he has given us strength to overcome all obstacles yielding the power of redemption !

In the Torah Billam the Rusha states “ GOD brings them out of Egypt”, In Sefer Oar Ha Chyim it is explained that this is written in an active sense since it is on Passach that sparks of Holiness are freed from impurity. The 7 days of Passach parallel the 7 days of creation. What we strive for creatively, intellectually, emotionally and physically can cause great changes in the continual of process of the renewal of all life including ourselves from this time period Passach is a time of profound personal spiritual redemption, as it says in Toldot Yaacov Yosef that on Passach “ A man merits access to the eternal wellsprings of life”.

One part of doing this is by the 4 cups of wine at the sedar, by this we rectify the sin of Adam as the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil was a grape. By drinking the 4 cups of wine we can remove the separation created by the sin of Adam, each cup has potential to remove aspects of the 4 “Klipot” that separate us from GOD ! Thus removing our desires for actions not supportive or against divine will, feelings of our heart that are not the love of GOD, thoughts that are not good, and barriers to divine inspiration. The wine of Pesach is a Tikun by Imma. We learn in Pre Atz Chyim by drinking the 4 cups wine there decends “mochin” down the throat to the head of Rachel. Matzah is a tikun by Abba.

Matzah seems to be only a little water and flour, but the Zohar tells us it is the bread of Faith, only on passach GOD gives it the power to be a gateway for “emunah”. If we add the letter “ו” to מצה (matzah) we have מצוה (mitzvah). The letter ו of the Divine name reveals our Ruach, our emotional soul, when one involves their heart in Divine service how great this is. Matza has a lot of potential to nullify evil סמא”ל (the Devil) + 4 letters = מצה . Rabbi Ashlag expains in the Hakdamah to Tikunim concerning this that this added letter ו gives “chassadim” to the Malchut, by this the Chuchmah in it illuminates. It is similar to the Manna in the desert some had more some less, but all had the measure of an omer. To some its taste was bland to others it tasted as what ever they desired. The Ari teaches in Shar pasukim that “Smura Matzah” is Machut of Bina, which is the ד of אחד . Think about this deeply as it touches on many things.

We can turn the “bread of affliction” to the “bread of redemption” ! Matzah in Atbash system of letter exchange becomes יה”צ. From the name י”ה comes Divine wisdom, While צ is the vessel for this wisdom. One fit to receive it. צ represent the “Sadeek”. It states in the Gemora a child does not have wisdom till he has tasted Wheat. Yet this type of wisdom from Matzah is very high. As the Mittler Rebbe said “ The Aor Makiff (surrounding light) of Chuchmah is Emunah”. The matzah also works to complete our dat as Taught by Rabbi Natan of Bresslov. The 3 matzot correspond to Chaba’d of Dat, also to Myriam’s well, the Cloud that surrounded Yisrael in the desert and the Manna. By eating Matzah we are able to remove the delusions of this world from our brains, and the scream out to GOD with words like ”thunder” when reading the Hagada. .

הגדה של פסח + 1= מלכות, Through the “Hagada” we can reveal GOD’s Kingship which ultimately is Mashiach. This is also reflected by spelling out each letter of הגדה as ה”ה דל”ת גימ”ל ה”י=ישראל +1.

Passach itself ( פסח ) by Atbash becomes וחס meaning “and having mercy”. This shows us that on Passach we draw down the power to Divine mercy. As it was by this Divine mercy that we were freed from Egypt w hen we had reached the lowest level of defilement. GOD told Avraham that our exile of Egypt would be 400 years, but GOD in his great mercy he took us out in only 210 years. ”Choroset” חרוסת permeates to חס רות, mercy of Ruth. This illudes To David HaMelach and the final redemption.

Passach is called “the time of our freedom”, it was from Passach that we went from the lowest depths of enslavement and spiritual depravity to the highest spiritual states at the sea, and then stood before GOD and received the Torah. The word Passach means to Jump. The spiritual growth of Passach is not a gradual thing, but made in leaps and jumps. It is said that rejoicing over the redemption from Egypt leads to further redemption.

Eliyahu Ha Novi is know to be at 2 places. At every circumcision, as he is called in the Holy books “Angel of the Covenant”. It was before eating the Corban Passach that Moshe or some say Yuhoshua circumcised Yisrael so they could eat of the Corban Passach, then came redemption ! Eliyahu (Elijah) is also invited to the Passach Sader. We even set out a cup of wine for him in every home. Then when we open the door for Eliyahu towards the conclusion of the Seder, after all the previous preparations we say “ Pour out your wrath ….. Pursue them in anger” . May it be in the merit of the Sadeekem in the Gan Aden and now on the Earth that GOD has great mercy upon us so that we will see the prophesy of the Prophet Malachi fulfilled with Eliyahu coming to us turning the hearts of children to their parents and parents to their children with the coming of our righteous Mashiach quickly in our days !

The Rebbi of Karlin said ”Great is a man of Yisrael in the way He is formed, allowing Him to be a son of the King ”. It is of this quality the Torah is speaking of when it speaks of freedom. It was for this quality that we merited being redeemed from Egypt. This Holiness obligates us to be careful not to transgress the border between freedom and a state of lawless abandonment of any constant real values of virtue. Behavior which would bring shame to our father the King of His Holy nation Yisrael and all creation. The freedom we are talking about places upon us borders upon our behavior, giving us more obligations which come upon such a man from God because of the heights of His level in the scheme of creation. Because of this a free man must be careful with matters involving his Honor. But lawless abandon of Godly virtue is of man at a lowly level. In this is a aspect of slavery. As a slave’s disgracefulness adds to him losing restraint and control. As he just really doesn’t care. Such a man will do all that arises of his emotions, he loses control over himself. He goes from the realm of intellect that is upright, transgressing going after his desires. We see this in lowly people, they do their evil desires. The true image of man parishes from them. Leaving them with an image as any human being, when His true nature is beyond this. As his soul has heard the voice of God speaking at Sinai and has experienced the wonders God has done for the Hebrew people. In the beginning he believes in his own eyes that his actions are his desires, but in the end he is only a slave to his evil inclination.

If we look at Yaakov’s blessing from Yizchak we can see how something lowly can be something great as Yitzchak said ”Your seed shall be as the sand of the earth, you shall spread to the north, east , south and west.” During the times we live in now it seems that many of the Jewish people have fell to a low spiritual place. Many of our people now are as low as the sand of the earth (being immersed only in physical matters, with no spiritual awareness), sitting among the nations in exile. But as the great Rabbi Hillel said ”My falling is my rising”. The seemingly lowly state we are in now is only a necessary step. As was the captivity in Egypt, to bring about redemption. As by the lowliness created by a lack of spirituality, they can appreciate it once it is truly found.

The Ruach (spirit) of Yisrael is the internal aspect of His Nefesh (animal soul), its instinctual awareness known as leah. It is only this that can free him from from the slavery of his evil inclination ruling upon all his limbs. Which has become his master. The source the true Ruach (spirit) of Yisrael is in the many mitzvot, Positive commands and prohibitions. For this reason one is required to do many mitzvot to establish His freedom. Only in this way is there true freedom of the Nefesh (animal soul). But to one who does not know this they, God forbid, think that all the mitzvot remove all joy from life. When it is exactly the opposite. One who has never tasted the true atmosphere of people observing God’s Holidays will never understand this. For this reason it says concerning the Passover offering ”No stranger may eat from it”. Better is the verse ”taste and see that yhv”h is good”, with the coming of our righteous mashiach quickly in our days.

The Passover offering is on the anniversary of the original redemption, it is also the date the future redemption shall occur ! It is strange the “Motzi Matza” is made on a broken piece of Matza and in “yachatz” when the Matza is broken to two pieces nothing is said or on “Zphon” when it (the Afikomen) is eaten !

It is something  peculiar that in the Hagada there is no direct mention of the MESSIAH or the future REDEMPTION.

 

Also know that during these 7 weeks until the time of receiving the Torah anew on Shavuot God gives us a special gift each week, each day for the betterment of our souls by allowing us to develop our soul powers of doing kindness during the first week, the 2nd week discipline, the 3rd week harmony and balance, the 4th week endurance so to be able to obtain any goal, 5th week perfecting minor details involved in all we do, 6th week making the greatest perfection of any circumstance, and in the 7th and final week having the kingship of God revealed in all our thoughts speech and actions. This is called ”counting of the omer ”. From all of this God willing we shall be ready to receive the Torah.

Parsha Tsav

The Parsha talks all about sacrifice.

During times when sacrifices were offered sin never clung to Yisrael as these offerings made atonement for them.1 Rabbi Yose teaches concerning the twelve properties of the Torah that inequity can be purged even without sacrifices of flesh but with words of Torah. Even if punishment is already decreed against one, it can be annulled. Words of Torah can purify those who are unclean. He who studies Torah is first purified and then sanctified. 2 Now Torah is from Z’a (Source of Ruach-Emotional Soul), but with complete self sacrifice one can taste the Torah of the future. This is the Torah of “Atik” (The ancient of Days source of Delight) or “aor ganuz” (hidden light). This is acquired by one who never prays for his personal benefit, it is as if he is not part of this world.3 Fire is Binna (Divine Understanding). The Torah is spice against the “Yetzer Hora” (evil inclination). Through being occupied in Torah, which is called Bina. Bina is the source of Givurot. “Dinim” (judgments) are only sweetened in their source being in the Torah. This is by including the left in the right, making טוב (good). This is as Avraham’s sacrifice at “batara”. Which is the future slaughtering of the “Yetzer Hora”. Separating it from us. By cleaving oneself in the light of the Eyn Sof that flows from the letters of the Torah. There goes in judgments to their source. They are corrected in their source in the Torah.4 Malchut of Atzilut is called fire. Fire is Atzilut. But since we are in “galut” this fire does not have to power to burn up the “sitra achra” (other side). It is only strong enough to guard “kidusha” (holiness). It is in Rachamim (Mercy) that we are able to stand in this fire of Holiness. In the future it will be this fire which will destroy the wicked, and it is this fire that will build the 3rd Temple. This fire is the כבוד (Glory) of the Shechinah, by it we are sustained. It is יאהדונה”י. When this light stands on ones head all lights shine on it. יאהדונה”י makes all אחד (one). The “ו “ in the middle is the hand of God, which is between 2 “ י “ . By “yichud” the Shechina (Divine Presence) rises to the Ayn Soff (infinateness) and decends to את .5

Like a sacrifice, Torah is offered as a gift to God. He is at his own table.6 The sages teach in the Talmud that at one time, the sacrificial altar atoned for Israel. Now one’s table, through the spiritual elevation of his food, accomplishes it.7 We learn from Rabbenu Bachyah that once a person con­fesses his sins to God, no angel is permitted to harm him. Confession atones for the wicked; once they accept the judgment, they merit life in Olam HaBa. The words of confes­sion stand in the place of sacrifice. Thus, to avoid grievous Judgment one must confess even for inadvertent sins, as these require a guilt offering. Many have been saved from death by confession. 8 The main greatness of the Divine Name is through wealth. All this is decided by the כסא (thrown) and משפט (judgment). Dont take benefit of a mitzvah 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 mitzvoth (commandment-attachment) in a way of כבוד (honor) due to the Holy king. Don’t 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.9

Divine Names can really only be understood according to the mystical part of Torah, Kabalah. The Names operate Hanhagah (Divine Ruling-providence) over the physical and spiritual worlds. In  Midrash Raba it says that when Moses asked God: “What is Your Name?” he was told: “I have many Names, and I am called according to My actions”.

Please note that it’s forbidden to pronounce any of these names except during prayer and Torah study, and the Main Name YHV”H is not pronounced at all in this world at this time, as this level of providence for the most part is concealed so the name is not pronounced, and to do so would thus be false as it not revealed thus the air of the world at this time is not fit for this name, so beware.:

The name אדני is a chariot to the name יהוה and is wrapped within it. In the same way, יהוה is wrapped within (the name) אהיה to create the world. However, the name יהוה. There are sefirot that are called by the name יהו”ה and other sefirot called by אדנ”י , and through those of אדנ”י we were created. He who learns “Havayot”, needs to learn them in order to build a building for Hashem, he needs to build though prayer. (Zohar Tikunim)

 

The Name Eloheme expands until gods of the otherside issue from it. The Name Eloheme expands to 120 permutations in the realm of holiness. Anger causes the Name יהוה (Havayah) to be dissociated from the Name אלהי”ם  (Elokim), the remedy is to join them together again.

 

The י from the name אדני is lower Chochmah which is fear of God, it is his “Malchut” (Rulership)

Unite this Name יהוה of  numerical value  ס”ג 63 with the Name Elokim.

Also the Name Havayah vocalized with the vowels of the Name Elokim

Meditate on the Name יהוה of  numerical value ע”ב  72 intend to unite this Name with the Name אהיה (Ehyeh).

The name אדנ”י is a chariot to the name יהוה and is wrapped within it. In the same way, יהוה is wrapped within the name אהיה to create the world. However, the name יהוה is a chariot to its Master, to the supernal Keter (Crown). Of the name יהוה the י is the Chochmah, ה is the Binah, ו includes six sefirot, ה is the Malchut, and this is the flow from above to below. Also His light flows from the י of אדנ”י from below to above until the Ein Sof which is hinted to in the letters אין from the name אדנ”י . Master of Everything does not have a form of a letter or a vowel point. As it is written, “Who will you liken me to that I should be his equal” (Isa. 40:25), and “Who will you compare to God, and what form will you compare to Him” (ibid. 40:18). (Tikunim)

Unite the name יהוה  whose numerical value is מ”ה 45 with the Name אדני  Adni.

The surrounding light is by the Name  אהיה T he sefirot of the world of Beriah. are permutations of the Names אהיה and   יהוה

The four letters of the Divine name, יהוה blessed is He, Their pronunciations and combinations are constantly changing all the time in every moment. He renews them constantly according to his will. These ever changing confluences are the result of the 1080 combinations of the Divine Name. He renews them constantly according to his will. Know that all that happens above in the upper worlds and here below, flows according to your deeds. So the God says : “The Rock Who begat you, you weaken” This is when Yisrael doesn’t do the will of The Hashem it’s then said of them that they weaken the strength of above. Its also written of Yisrael when they do what God asks (Devorim 32,18) “Give might to Elokim” this is by your “mitzvot”.

Know,

י which is one daughter, is under the ה of the name אלהים ,the letter י from the name אדנ”י, and the letter י from the name שד”י includes all the “cenoyim” (appellations), and all the הויות, like the name

הוהי or others like it. The letter י should be under the letter ה in every name that the “cenoyim” (appellations) or Havaya that is feminine.

אהיה is the gematria 21= יהו The letter ו includes the six sides, through them the six sides are sealed. They are: יהו הוי והי ויה היו יוה. The name יהו takes from the right side which is Chesed, and seals through it the Chuchmah and from it, “He who wants to become wise leans to the south. (Page 15B) The name הוי takes from the left side which is Gevurah, and there is sealed riches, from it comes “He who wants to become rich leans to the north”. The name והי faces the east, and it takes the middle pillar, and through it is sealed children. The name ויה is takes the right leg, and it looks upwards, and through it is sealed life. The name היו is takes the left leg, and it looks downwards, and through it is sealed food. Look upwards towards the Chochmah, and tie it to the right leg, and seal there life, because about Chochmah it says “the wisdom gives life to it’s owner” (Ecc. 7:12). Look upwards towards the upper Mother, and tie it to the left leg, and seal through it sustenance. The name יוה faces towards the west through the tzadik, who is the Eiruv621, because there all the soldiers are mixed. And it includes the eighteen letters which are: יהו הוי והי ויה היו יוה. these are the 18 that through them are called the eighteen worlds, and the tzadik through them is called the חי (life) (18) of the worlds.

All these יהוה originate from the supernal Mother, which is חיים (life), and the tzadik is named after her חי (life). The חיות Chayot (living angels) of the chariot are named after her. Because the supernal Mother is חיים life. Like we have said, “The tree of life are for those that hold onto it” (Prov. 3:18), which is the markava (chariot) to Chochmah.

Malchut, from there is the letter ה‘, and from her is the יהוה called complete. She is called seven times יהוה In them is כח (power) twenty eight letters that it says about them, “And now is made great the כח (power) (28) of יהוה (Num. 14:17). And from these seven names she is called the בת שבע Daughter of Seven, it says about this, “seven times a day I praise you because of your righteous judgments” (Psalms 119:164).

There are thirty two times י”ה in the thirty two names of אלהים , these are the thirty two paths of Chochmah, the letter א with the name י”ה isאיה מקום כבודו (where is the place of your honor). There are ten sayings and thirty two paths, and they all come from אי”ה.

 

חשק חלם, שבא, קמץ the vowel points from the name צבאות all shine into the precious stone, the Malchut which includes all “segulahs”

(Zohar Tikunim)

 

All verses, that  “Havayot” come from the beginning letters or ending letters of the words in the verse, whether it is a verse from the Torah, Prophets, or the Writing, you are able to use with the name the vowel points from the verse. There are those that place the vowel points from the first letters even though the “Havaya” comes from the ending letters. There is another way if the “Havaya” is in the first letters and its vowel points in the ending letters. There is also the vowel points in a different secret (Zohar Tikunim Page 10A)

THE DOUBLE DOSE

Vayachal Bs”d

In last weeks parsha GOD states “ The Children of Isreal shall keep the Shabot throughout there generations”. After the giving of the Shabot Moses is given the 2 tablets of the law written by the finger of Elohem”e. In the beginning of this weeks parsha the commandment is given “ six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest. It shall be a holy day to you. Whoever works on this day shall surely be put to death”. How can this be as people are unfortunately working on Shabot, and they are still walking around ?.

Its known that on the Holy Shobot there is revealed more Chuchmah (Wisdom-creative inspiration). It says “Chuchmah enlivens its owner”, and the source of this חיים (life force) is שכל .1 (intellect) We draw from The main aspect of life is in Chuchmah.2 All מזון (nourishment) and flow is from Bina (Divine understanding), but nourishment of the upper King is from Chuchmah. From here is heaven nourished as it says ”Chuchmah makes alive its owner”, and the land to flow in Malchut of

בן ישי (King David) Who is בן יש י(son who has י (?, י refers to Teferet (balence-harmony).3 Decent from Atzilut (world of Divine creativity) to Bria (world of Divine Understanding) is always called death.4 When a man transgresses any of the prohibitions of the Torah they receive death from heaven and are cut off. 5 The limbs of a man correspond to branches of the supernal markava (chariot). The malvush (garment) of Canneset Yisrael is in 248 limbs of Atzilut which are angels. There are 248 lights in Adam elyon (supernal man) from 248 mitzvot (affirmative Biblical commandments). So that by each of the 248 mitzvot there does not rule the tuma (impurity) of death (on its cooresponding limb). All the 248 positive commandments are masculine being Teferet that is drawn from Chesed. 365 days of the year come in from the 365 branches of din (judgment) of the supernal tree. They are from the aspect of פחד (great fear) drawn from the feminine side, so women are obligated to guard all 365 prohibitions of the Torah. Prohibitions are from din (stern judgment). So do not transgress the prohibitions. 6 Not eating the atz dat tov and rah (tree of good and evil) are 365 prohibitions. They are like sexual offenses, places of ruling of the chizonim (the other side). One who enters the gan and comes unto the chizonim there, there is aroused unto him supernal givurot (forces of severity-restriction). They flow to the malchut (Divine presence), and this disturbs minuchah (pleasant rest), givurot flow to the chitzonim. When a man comes unto these, death rules upon him, God forbid. The atz dat tov (tree of good) is mitzvot and that which is permitted. The mitzvot are atz Chyim (tree of life), that which is permitted is atz dat tov. 7 “Atz Chyim” is Z’a (source of Ruach-Emotional soul), “Atz Dat” is Nakavah (source of the animal soul called Nefesh). One is life the other is death. Whoever involves themselves with them, but gives more consideration to Nakavah when She is separate from Z”a causes to himself death in this world and “olam Haba” (world to come).8 sedek” is “Atz Chym” it arrouses against death, and delivers those attached to it.9

Immediately after the giving of the commandment of Shabot it says “Take a offering to Yhv”h, he who is of a willing heart.” May we have such a “willing heart” arroused from between the “Caruvim” that are upon the ark of the covenant as described in our parsha. “Navua” (prophesy) rests on the heart of man. Its called nefesh in the heart. If the lungs merit song of Ruach Hakodesh we say the caruvim spread there wings to receive three ”chayot” of the marcava. The four winds of the world are emanated from the four wings of the Chayot. They correspond to four legs of the thrown. The heart is an aspect flesh from the side of the ox.10

Pekudy

This portion of the Torah, Pekudy is all about accounting. It is in this case the accounting of the assembly of the parts of the Mishcon (tabernacle). Which is representative of the order of the supernal things. The levels of the unfolding of the Divine. In the accounts of the Mishcon are great secrets concerning the Divine names. Things that are not spoken.

The Cohen Gadol wore a garment called the “Choshen Mishpot” , a small square cloth made from wool and linen containing 12 different precious stones in three columns, four gems in each row. The stones had the names of twelve tribes engraved on them as well as the names of Avraham, Yitzchak and Yakov and the words “Shivtey Yeshurun” (Tribes of Yeshurun). There were altogether 72 letters on these stones. , The “Choshen mishpot” corresponds to Zeir Anpin. In the “Choshen Mishpot” are the  Urim which is the 42-letter Name and the Tumim which is the 72-letter Name when Cohen Gadol was concentrating on the first Divine Name and some letters on the stones shined. Then to understand the message, the Cohen concentrated on the second Name.

A thing cannot be settled in its place till its name has been called, and it is set there. Hashem decided to list the aspects of the Torah and parts of the “Mishcon” as they together are one and cannot be separated.1 The “mishcon” was consecrated as a body which contains a “ruach”.2 All measurements of the “miscon” are those of kav midah (spiritual powers distribution device).3 Kav midah spreads to malchut (Divine presence-physical). It gives power to spread out in all her forces.4 Botzina Kardinita (lamp of Divine will) gives mida (measure) to all midot (measurements), this is the idea of Kav midah which measures out all midot. The light dressing in all the sefirot. Which is their Nashama. It’s existence is concealed being Nashama of Bina, that is Nashama of Chuchmah that is Nashama of Keter. All the days of a man refers to kav midah spreading out within measuring midot. This is the secret of supernal life force spreading out from Keter to Chuchmah. Its midah being measured. Such is man. supernal life force spreading out from kav midah.5 All measurements are of the mida (attribute) of Malchut.6 The Supernal forces above are together in a unity of 12 parts these correspond to :

Gold, Silver, Brass, “Techalet”, “Argaman”, Scarlet, Fine Linnen, Goats Hair, Rams Skins dyed Red, “Tachash”, “Shittim Wood”, Oil for Light, “ketoret”, and spices of the annointing oil. These 12 forces are all under the 4 “chayot” (angels). All these move towards the כסא (thrown) to lift her on high so that she may join her spouse. So that together they may be in glory. The most high sits on the כסא in perfect perfect union with His Spouse. So there is joy in the world. The elements are listed according to their values here below. But in the “Markava” above it is the opposite. There silver is before Gold, but here the left comes before the right.7 The inner most alter was for Incense, it is the “small still voice.8 The ten curtains are the sefirot of malchut.9 The 50 gold and brass clasps appeared as the color “argaman”.10 (red-purple).The boards are chuchmah they are the angels “Seraphim” of the world of Bria.11 The Caruvim are Nezauch and Hod their wings on the parochet is Yesod.12 The Caruvim are Teferet and Malchut. The parochet (curtain) separate between the kodesh, these are 7 sefirot, they are the Chyot and the Kadosh Kadoshim. These are the first 3 sefirot. These are the Chyot of Atzilut. Sarafim are between the אולם and alter, Chayot are from the alter to outside the Azarah.13 The mishcon’s sockets are “Nogah” (sparks) from the chest of teferet (harmony) of nogah. The floor of the “mishcon” refers to aspects that are underneath it being forces of strong judgment. There is no soul that cannot understand both the simple and the Kabalistic meaning.14

The Tabernacle in the desert went through several changes enlargements when residing in Gilgal, Shilo and Bet-Ael, and then was built by King Soloman The Holy Temple and later was built the 2nd Temple by Nachemyah and Ezra culminating with King Herod’s improvements of the Second Temple. The Temple during King Herod’s period was the greatest of the structures in size. Yet all these are small compared with the scale of Ezekiel’s Temple.

God wished to dwell in his ‘Sanctuary” “Mikdash” in order to be known; in it His presence appeared  spoke and commanded: As it is written

 “There I will appear to you, and I will commune with you from above the ark cover, from between the two cherubims which are upon the Ark of the Covenant, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel’ (Ex. 25:22).

King Solomon called an oracle of the Tempe the “Dvir” as it was from here that was revealed God’s “word” or “command” “davar” ,the prophetic message..     

Furthermore concerning this indwelling of the Divine Presence its written : “Since the day that I brought forth My people out of the land of Egypt I chose no city among all the tribes of Israel to build an house in, that My name might be there; neither chose I any man to be a ruler over My people Israel. But I have chosen Jerusalem, that My Name might be there; and have chosen David to be over My people Israel” (II Chron. 6:5-6).

 

Israel was “chosen” so the could be the indwelling and habitation of God and to unite what is above with what is here below, The unification of  ” The Holy One Blessed is He with  The Shechinah,” This union was first performed in the tabernacle through the mediation of Moses and Aaron and then through the successors of the high priest in the first and second temples.

 The midrash tells us that in the wilderness the bearers of the Ark of the Covenant were miraculously carried by it  They felt no weight and they flew along with it like angels and received prophetic vision.

.The “Kohen Gadol” officiates in God’s earthly dwelling. Metatron is the lord of the Heavenly Tabernacle.in which the sacrifices is performed by the Archangel Michael who is ” Kohen Gadol.” But beyond that, hidden in God’s reality itself, there is yet another Tabernacle, whose “High Priest” is the Divine Light itself.

Thus there are three aspects of the universal dwelling place of God like there is in the division of the sanctuary: the Divine “Holy of Holies”, “Ulam”, and the “Azara” the outer court. The light of His indwelling radiates from the Holy of Holies to the Holy and shines upon the seven-branched candlestick then to the outer court which is the “footstool” where man prostrates himself in awe, before which the altar, on which all bodily things are offered.

 When the “Mishkan” was completed and erected, a Cloud appeared on it: As its written “Then the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the Glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. And Moshe was not able to enter the Tent of Meeting, because the cloud rested on it, and the Glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle” (40:34-35). As a cloud was at the Tent of Meeting. A cloud is also described at Mount Sinai. There was also a cloud by Abraham and Yitzchak at the “Akaidah”. As its written  “Avraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the Place from afar” (Gen. 22:4). There Rashi asks: what did he see? And answers “He saw a cloud over the mountain”. Its also written by the first Temple  ” And it came to pass, when the priests came out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the Lord,” (Kings 18) There was also the cloud that would lead His people through the wilderness.

To help aid the novice, the beginner in reading this I have included here some of the terms and concepts found in these teachings. The terms revolve around 5 concepts. The Names of God. The levels of the soul. The order and way of unfolding of the Divine Light. This is what is called knowledge of the “parzufim” (Divine faces). One could call this spiritual anatomy. The Worlds. Knowledge of the 10 Sefirot, these are the emanations of Divine energies which are the building blocks of all that was, is and will be.

Upon each of these subjects I have written a book. Yet the real understanding of the levels of the Soul, spiritual anatomy, the sefirot, worlds and the Divine Names is dependant on their context in the big picture. By this all is put into perspective. For this purpose I have written :

The Owner’s Manual to the Soul”

The Kabbalah.

Which is as “unified field theory” of Spiritualty. As it is important for one to see the “forest” before investigating the individual “trees”.

Levels of the Soul- In the Bible in its original language “Hebrew” the Soul is called by 5 names.

The Nefesh (animal soul), is the lowest level of them all. It is common in all living things.

The Ruach is the Emotional soul- called “spirit”

The Neshamah ( Divine intellectual Soul) it is the LIGHT OF DIVINE UNDERSTANDING.

The Chayah is the soul of creativity

The Yachidah is the highest level, at this level all souls are unified. It shall be this level the Messiah shall attain.

Ein Sof – which means “the infinite.” It is the highest level the The limitless Light of God.

The 10 Sefirot-Powers of Divine emanation

Keter – · The first and highest of the ten sefirot. Keter means “crown” and is the link between the finite world we inhabit and the infinite world of Ein Sof. In the stages of creation, Keter is the stage in which material reality begins to come into existence. Keter is associated with God’s head and appears at the top of the Tree of Life.

Chochmah – · The second of the ten sefirot. Chochmah means “wisdom.” In the stages of creation, Chochmah represents the beginning of thought. It involves creative inspiration.

Binah – · Binah means “understanding” it is powers of reasoning, intellect..

Chesed – · Chesed, the fourth sefirah, represents love, giving, or mercy. In the stages of creation, Chesed heralds the beginning of emotional energy. Chesed is also identified with the Biblical character Abraham, the patriarch.

Gevurah – · Gevurah is sometimes also called “Din”, and means “judgment.” It is the power of discipline and restriction. It is often associated with Isaac, Abraham’s son.

Tiferet – · The sixth sefirah, Tiferet represents beauty and balance. It is the mediator of Gevurah and Chesed, Tiferet balances mercy and judgment. Tiferet is often linked to the biblical character Jacob, who fathered the twelve tribes of Israel.

Netzach – · The seventh sefirah, Netzach stands for limitless energy, great quantity, endurance, and victory. Netzach is often associated with the biblical character Moses.

Hod – · The eighth sefirah, Hod represents contained energy that which is clearly defined. It is very specific flow. It is the quality of the Divine abundance while Netzach as said before is quantity of flow. Hod isoften associated with Aaron, the first high priest in the Bible.

Yesod – · The ninth sefirah, and serves as the mediator of Netzach and Hod. The biblical character associated with Yesod is Joseph, Jacob’s son. The influence of astrology happens at this level.

Malchut – means “kingdom” and is the tenth and final sefirah. It is also called the Shekhinah which is associated with God’s presence as it is reveal.

Shekhinah is the Divine presence

Each of the major Parzufim contains all 10 Sefirot, specific Sefirot are identified with particular Parzufim. From each of these parzufim is emanated the different levels of the soul.

Adam Kadmon – The first world, contains all overall Providence.

Attika Kaddisha and Arich Anpin (The Holy Ancient One and the Long Face) are identified with the Sefirah Keter. From here is emanated the level of soul called “Yachidah”.

Abba (the Supernal Father ) corresponding to Chochmah. From here is emanated the level of soul called “Chayah”.

Imma (the Supernal Mother) corresponding to Binah, From here is emanated the level of soul called “Nashama”.

From here is emanated the level of soul called “Ruach”

Nukvah (the Female) (corresponding to Malchut).From here is emanated the level of soul called “Nefesh”.

There are also six secondary Parzufim:

Jacob and Israel, which are aspects of Ze’ir Anpin

Rachel and Leah, which are aspects of Nukvah,

Israel Sava and Tevunah, are parzufim made from the lower sefirot of Abba and Imma.
