The Truth of Truths – The Spies – National Redemption

The Truth of Truths
Rabbi Pinchas Winston Shlit”a, Parshas BeHa’aloscha

This is the greatness of G–D. He is the Truth of Truths, there is none higher. Nothing else matters to G–D other than the truth, at all times. G–D and truth are one, in the ultimate sense. Truth is greatness and therefore G–D is, by definition, the greatest of greatness. By definition, He must also be humble.

The Talmud says regarding Moshe and Aharon:
Rava, others say Rebi Yochanan, said: “More significant is that which is said of Moshe and Aharon than that which is said of Avraham. Regarding Avraham it says, 'I am but dust and ashes,’, whereas regarding Moshe and Aharon it says, ‘And we are nothing.’ Rafa, others say Rebi Yochanan, also said: “The world exists only on account of [the merit of] Moshe and Aharon; for it is written here, ‘And we are nothing,’ and it is written there [of the world], ‘He hangs the earth upon nothing’.” (Chulin 89a)
It is quite a statement to make. What it is really saying is that the world exists on account of humility. But, if humility is the ability to bow to the truth at all times, how can it be any other way? History, for the most part, has been about arrogant people who would rather impose their version of truth than to humble themselves to the real one. This is why history has also been about death, destruction, and tremendous waste.

If the world exists for the humble, because the humble exist for the truth, then a world that strays far from the truth is one that is vulnerable to Divine decree. Political correctness only flies if it supports the truth, not if it undermines it, as it has done in so many ways.

The Talmud states that one of the signs that Moshiach is not too far away is the amount of falsehood in the world. It’s pervasiveness indicates that Creation is reaching a boiling point, and that is never good.

True, it will result in Moshiach and a more perfect world, but only after crossing a deadly and dangerous threshold called “The War of Gog and Magog.”

National Redemption
Rabbi Pinchas Winston Shlit”a, Parshas Shlach

The importance of Parshas Sh'lach is that it holds the key to more than just being able to make aliyah. It holds the key to national redemption. You can do mitzvos in exile. You can’t really “do” Eretz Yisroel, at least not in the full sense of the term, in the Diaspora, and Eretz Yisroel is an indispensable part of redemption.

What does this have to do with the parshah? Granted that the spies erred gravely and prevented the Final Redemption from occurring in their time. Unquestionably, there are lessons still to be learned from what they did wrong. What, however, does their sin have to do with us anymore.

After all, we have our own issues to fix up today, and they are the ones holding back the redemption in our time. Certainly how a Jew feels about Eretz Yisroel today is important, but is it really central? For the Jewish people in the generation of the spies, the next mitzvah was aliyah, and they failed it. For us, it is just staying Torah observant, and we’re not doing so well at that either.

This is not exactly accurate. In fact, it is this inaccuracy that is actually holding back the redemption. It’s at the door. It wants to come in. We just won’t let it.

To begin with, the spies did not only reject Eretz Yisroel, though that was bad enough. What they really rejected was redemption, as in the final one. They were already comfortable with the one they had […] Why upset a status quo you can live with it?

We’re still within a very unique period in Jewish history that has allowed us to enjoy freedoms that our ancestors have not known for millennia, literally thousands of years. Exile, post-Holocaust, has been good to us, and still is, in spite of the troubles we have and the ones brewing on the horizon.

The book, “Kol HaTor,” has been such a source of controversy. Said to be the teachings of the Vilna Gaon to his students on a mission to resettle the Land of Israel, it has been quite controversial in the Torah world. Partly to do with how it came to publication, mostly to do with what it says, many in the Torah world refuse to believe that it is authentic GR”A (the letters of HaGaon, Rebi Eliyahu).
Many years later the authenticity of the work has been verified by different sources. The history of how it came to be published is thoroughly chronicled in a new translation of the work, called “The Voice of the Turtledove,” by the “Mishmeres Sholom.” Undoubtedly, such crucial information will not change the opinion of the many who “need” it to not be the work of Gaon.
The reason is human nature, and the story of the spies all over again. Kol HaTor focuses primarily on the concept of Moshiach Ben Yosef, a little known and even less understood component of the Final Redemption. Only the GR”A, in this ground uprooting work, seems to have understood the idea, translating it into a call for national proactivity in bringing about redemption.

All of a sudden statements like, “I’ll make aliyah when Moshiach comes” do not work. Suddenly, our “to each his own” type of lifestyle is pushed aside for one that puts every Jew either at war against the forces blocking redemption, or on their side. In short, if a person is not a redemption-lover, someone who daily fulfills the directive of anticipating redemption, Kol HaTor is a proverbial brutal slap across the national face.

Before Kol HaTor came to public light, one could have argued that there was a big difference between the generation of the spies and subsequent generations. After all, they had been taken out of Egypt specifically to go to Eretz Yisroel. God Himself was leading the nation, and Moshe Rabbeinu was His emissary on earth. Rejecting Eretz Yisroel at THAT time was clearly a big no-no.

Since then, we have wandered from exile to exile. We are no longer led by pillars of fire but threatened by them. We have leaders but none even close to the level of Moshe Rabbeinu. What can we do but sit back and let history run its course, doing the best we can do to preserve Torah tradition in a world that is become increasingly hostile to God-believers. Given the circumstances and what we know about redemption, can God really blame us?

Enter Kol HaTor. Kol HaTor says yes, God can and will blame us, at least since the Jewish year 5500 (1740 CE). According to the Gaon, as of that date national passivity was out and proactivity was in. There are things that we should and must do in anticipation of the Final Redemption, especially if we are going to speed it up and help it come mercifully. In the 1800s, most Jews were just trying to escape persecution and find any opportunity they could to eke out a meager living. Equal opportunity for Jews was still nascent, and this is why even secular Jews as well as religious Jews called for mass emigration from Europe to the Land of Israel.

Redemption? That’s a term that is only comfortable to repeat when referring to stocks or bonds. National Redemption? That’s a phrase that is better left to those who have little or nothing to lose by repeating it, or in the private world of prayer. Proactively pursue redemption? That’s tantamount to committing social suicide for many.
The exile will end, of that we can be certain. How it will end is a question that can only be answered by the nation itself. As mentioned in the past, the spies had a great reason for rejecting Eretz Yisroel, one that they thought God would whole-heartedly accept and agree to. They were shocked just how wrong they were.
What was their big and deadly mistake? They thought that they had only been rejecting a land, albeit one precious to God and His dear ones. They found out that, instead, they had rejected the whole idea of redemption, in effect retroactively nullifying the reason for their miraculous salvation from Egyptian bondage.
Are we making the same dangerous, nation-threatening mistake today? According to Kol HaTor, unquestionably, which is why so many continue to believe that it cannot be the authentic work of the Gaon from Vilna. Consequently, after they answer to God for overlooking the means to an expedient and safer Final Redemption, they’ll have to answer to the GR”A as well.

Editorial emphasis is mine.

From the Se’er of Israel: Words of Comfort and Hope

Each word of the following is tremendous, and prophetic. Read this and open your eyes to hear, and open your heart to receive the message

Father of Mercy, Father of the Holy Land and the Jews: 

The Creator of the Universe loves the Jews more than anyone else; He gave them the Torah as a gift and Shabbat as a gift.

At Mount Sinai the Jews said "we will do and we will obey," and the Holy One, Blessed is He chose them to manage the world forever and ever, for all eternity.

Anyone that wants to bother Israel and take parts away of the Holy Land of Israel will be messing with [the] Master of [the] Universe.

 The Creator of the Universe is bringing complications to all of the countries that want to take away parts of Israel, the Holy Land.

 It is not just that no one will be able to take away parts, it is that they will experience a downfall with the Holy One Blessed is He.

 Even Gush Katif will be returned to Israel.

Egypt and France are delusional. They want to get rid of the Muslim refugees, the Palestinians, Hamas and ISIS and want to take away parts of the Land of Israel in order to create a Palestinian state. They are next in line to receive tough strikes from the Master of the Universe.

 They started a war with the Holy One, Blessed is He, and no one has ever in the world won who is against Him.

European countries will continue to be filled with millions of refugees so that the Jews from Europe and the USA will have to come to the Holy Land of Israel.

If they don't understand with their mind, the Creator of the Universe will use force. If they will not understand with force, He will use more force.

Exile ended in 1948 and the Jews abroad are ‘grinding water,’ they are there for no reason, they must come and live in the Holy Land, in the Negev, Galilee, Golan Heights, Samaria, and Binyamin, and help their brothers in the Holy Land.

Israel grows a centimeter every day! 
You better believe it!

The entire world knows that the Creator of the Universe gave the Jews wisdom and knowledge so that the world will need us and will want to be with the Jews in the Land of Israel to get advice. The Jews in Israel are the small seed that gives great life to the world!

In the Holy Land are the graves of our fathers and mothers, our mother Rachel, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, Rabbi Meir Ba'al Hanes, Baba Sali, Rabbi Hiya, Rabbi Akiva – the world greats. The souls of all of the righteous that died outside of Israel come to the Cave of Patriarchs after a year. Just like Jacob that didn't want to be buried in the unholy land of Egypt, and Joseph's coffin that was drowned in the Nile.

All of the righteous reach the Cave of Patriarchs with the fathers. Whoever is wise and knowledgeable understands this, and whoever isn't will soon understand.

The Holy One, Blessed is He will decide who is elected; and, after a President is elected - remember this well, write it down –

The Creator of the Universe will make him expel all of the Jews living in the USA.

Jacob’s Sheep to Make Aliyah – Rav Vaknin says they MUST return for the GEULA

Ba’aah Ba’aah Aliyah – 'Biblical sheep' Flying to Israel on EL AL

Rav Amram Vaknin
 […]  "has said that the Jacob Sheep must return to the Land of Israel to help with the Geula (redemption)!" according to the Lewinskys.
(I’m soooo happy)

that I posted in December 2015. Read more about this amazing venture.

Say Hello to Rachel

They are the only animals in the world to have the biblical description of speckled skin, spots on their wool, and bands on their ankles and knees, the Lewinskys said in a crowdfunding campaign they launched for their organization, Friends of the Jacob Sheep.

The deal was brokered by Israel's embassy in Ottawa, which last month publicly offered its support to the effort. In February, Israel's ambassador to Canada, Rafael Barak, visited the family's farm in Abbotsford, about 40 miles east of Vancouver, and reportedly witnessed the birth of a lamb.

The flock currently consists of 113 animals — 18 adult rams, 62 adult ewes and the rest lambs. All will be settled on the Golan Heights.

The Lewinskys say the sheep are extinct in Israel.

They believe the animals came with Jacob through Canaan to Egypt, then with the Exodus to North Africa, and from there to Spain, England and then to North America.

"It will be the first time since biblical times that the Jacob sheep will be reintroduced to the land of Israel again," they said.

It’s All The Imagination of Hashem

This is a controversial topic, but not one to be shoved under the carpet since for many years NASA and the US Government have been engaged in just this and its many facets. I present this for consideration. There are many Rabbis that deny this is actual. However there are others who recognize the possibility. Since we have cautions from the Autistics about a Star” Nibiru entering (or has entered) into our Hemisphere (as can be viewed on SteveOlson youtube), and the forecasted Sky Show” of waring celestial entities, the “Kochav Yaakov” (Rabbi Cordevero on the “Star”) and Mashiach’s arrival imminently (as Rabbi Kanievsky has declared). There is much that has been stated so why not this? Of course, it could all be our imagination, or the Imagination of HaShem.

And I recommend reading The Vastness of Space.

Anonymous commented to my previous post, Vision of Ezekiel … NASA: "Sorry, cannot believe this. We have to remember that this is all the work of the soton, Esav's angel and its power. This is what and where all this stems from.” There are cele3stial beings besides angels; there are demons, etc., but life as we understand it from other planets, galaxies, whatever is nonsense."

The Rabbinic-Kabbalistic Teachings on Extraterrestrial Life Forms
An excerpt from the book, “UFO's; Aliens in Light of Torah”
(with permission)

I most certainly am not the first Rabbi to reveal material concerning life on other planets. Other Kabbalistic Rabbis before me have written books revealing some of the best-kept secrets in the world. We will discuss just a few of them here.

The late 18th century was a turbulent time for Jews living is Europe. The so-called age of enlightenment and science was spreading even into Jewish circles. This new religion of science sneered at the valued teachings of the Bible and sought in every way to contradict them, to "prove them wrong scientifically.”

One of the great Kabbalistic Sages of Eastern Europe, Rabbi Pinchas Eliyahu Horowitz of Vilna, arose to meet this challenge. He authored a monumental work on Kabbalah and science the likes of which has not been duplicated to this day.

In 1797, Rabbi Horowitz published his monumental work Sefer HaBrit, The Book of the Covenant. The work begins by discussing the order of the physical universe, the stars, planets and the like, continues to discuss the physical world and finishes with long, rich metaphysical discourses on the nature of man, consciousness and prophecy. The scope of the text is far too great to do appropriate justice to it here. I must limit myself to our topic and Rabbi Horowitz's most striking revelations about it.

It seems that even in Rabbi Horowitz's days there was interest and speculation about life on other planets. In Section 1, Lecture 3, Chapters 3 and 4, Rabbi Horowitz responds to the so-called scientific theories of his day regarding life on other planets and proceeds to enumerate from authoritative Jewish sources what the Torah teaches about this subject.

In Kabbalistic literature it is taught that the Holy One, Blessed Be He, has created an infinite number of worlds. Most commentators on these Kabbalistic texts will state that the worlds being spoken of are spiritual worlds. In other words, the Kabbalah is speaking about an infinite inter-dimensional quantum reality. There are four general dimensions or worlds in the Kabbalistic panorama; the three highest of these dimensions/worlds are Atzilut, Beriah and Yetzirah. These correspond to the dimensions of Spirit, Mind and Emotion respectively. Therefore, any worlds manifesting these realities are not going to be physical, as we understand the meaning of physical.

Rabbi Horowitz now steps in with a significant point. In Chapter 3 he asks why should the number of worlds in the fourth Kabbalistic level, Asiyah, corresponding to the physical realm, be any less than the infinite number of worlds in the supernal realms above it. He continues by quoting the holy Zohar "in many places" and the Mishna that in the future the Holy One, Blessed Be He, is to place each and every righteous person as a governor over 310 worlds. Rabbi Horowitz emphasizes that these are physical worlds in outer space. The future being spoken of is the time after the Messianic age and the resurrection of the dead. The reward of the righteous is that they are to ascend to the stars and rule sections of the galaxy as the regents of the Holy One, Blessed be He.

Rabbi Horowitz continues to bring evidence of other worlds from the Bible itself. With this proof text, he not only claims to prove that there are other worlds, but that they are also inhabited by beings. Rabbi Horowitz quotes from Judges 5:23, "cursed be Maroz, cursed be those who dwell there." The Talmud (Moed Katan 16A) records an opinion that Maroz is the name of a planet. And the verse says, "cursed be those who dwell there." This seems to imply that the planet Maroz is inhabited. Rabbi Horowitz concludes Chapter Three with the words, "According to my opinion, there are inhabited planets [in outer space] and this is also implied in the Tikunei Zohar.”

Accepting the given fact of other inhabited worlds, Rabbi Horowitz now addresses the issue of what type of beings are on these other planets. He begins by criticizing those who are of the opinion that the other planets are just like ours, with similar peoples of free will, similar animals, plant life and the like. He calls these beliefs lies and a waste. Those who believe them, Rabbi Horowitz says, are "simpletons who will believe anything.”

Rabbi Horowitz asks why would so many planets be needed just for our forms of life. Certainly, our planet is large enough to hold us all. Being that these planets are so numerous and distant from one another they must also be very different. No two can be exactly alike; each one is different from the other both generally and specifically.

Rabbi Horowitz also says it is a fallacy to think that the planets are formed of the same types of matter as is ours. He gives an example of the sun (which in Judaism is also considered a planet). Can someone dwell on the Sun and not be burned, he asks? Would not the brilliant light blind a person? In addition, as an example, on Saturn Rabbi Horowitz asks, would not a person freeze to death there due to its cold nature. To again prove the point of the varying types of life that are in outer space, Rabbi Horowitz uses the example of the ocean, saying that just as sea creatures differ tremendously from land creatures due to the different nature of their environments, so do the inhabitants of the other planets differ from us.

Rabbi Horowitz then follows with one of his most important points. He acknowledges that these extraterrestrial beings are "ba'alei sekhel u'madah" (masters of intelligence and science). Yet, with all their intellectual potentials, Rabbi Horowitz claims that all extraterrestrials will lack one essential component that will forever set them apart from the human race. They lack "behirah," the ability of Free Will. Free Will separates mankind from any and every other species. It is Free Will that is the  G-d given spiritual component that separates the human race from being just another animal species.

The Vision of Ezekiel – The Merkabah – NASA

Chassidis:  "The Kabbalistic account explains this difference in terms of the Four Worlds. All prophecy emanates from the divine chokhmah (wisdom) realm of Atziluth. However, in order to be perceived it descends to be enclothed in vessels of lower Worlds. Isaiah's prophecy saw the Merkabah in the World of Beriah divine understanding, restraining his explanation by realising the inadequacy of description. Ezekiel saw the Merkabah in the lower World of Yetzirah divine emotions, causing him to describe the vision in rapturous detail."

"And I saw, and behold, a tempest was coming from the north, a huge cloud and a flaming fire with a brightness around it;

[…] and from its midst, it was like the color of the chashmal from the midst of the fire; And from its midst was the likeness of four living beings, and this is their appearance; they had the likeness of a man; And [each] one had four faces, and [each] one had four wings; And their legs were straight legs, and the soles of their feet were like a round foot, and they sparkled like the color of burnished copper;

[…] And the likeness of the living beings; their appearance was like fiery coals, burning like the appearance of firebrands; it was going among the living beings; and there was a brightness to the fire and from the fire came forth lightning;

[…] The appearance of the wheels and their work was like the appearance of crystal, and the four of them had one likeness, and their appearance and their workings were as a wheel would be within a wheel
[…] And when the living beings would go, the wheels would go beside them; and when the living beings would lift themselves off the ground, the wheels would lift themselves; When they [the living beings] would go, they [the wheels] would go, and when they would stand, they would stand, and when they would lift themselves up from the ground, the wheels would lift themselves correspondingly to them, for the will of the living being was in the wheels [….]

Pics About Space is a very unusual site:

The description reads, "Space is attracting increasing attention today. During last few years some commercial space companies have been opened, such as SpaceX and Virgin Galactic; there were plans for manned missions to Mars, such as Mars One and Inspiration Mars Foundation; more and more countries start their space programs. All that leads to cheaper space flight and to the popularization of science and cosmos in general.
