In the word בְּרֵאשִׁית “In the beginning”, we find the word באר, meaning ‘a well’. Also the word ברא that means ‘created’.
“בְּאֵר חֲפָרוּהָ שָׂרִים, כָּרוּהָ נְדִיבֵי הָעָם, בִּמְחֹקֵק, בְּמִשְׁעֲנֹתָם; וּמִמִּדְבָּר, מַתָּנָה ”
“The well, which the princes dug, which the nobles of the people delved, with the sceptre, and with their staves. And from the wilderness to Mattanah; ”
The well is the aspect of channels of light that the patriarchs ‘dug’ for us. Abraham dug wells of Chessed and the Philistines stopped them after his death. Abraham was a great channel who shared his energy with everyone. After his death no one could handle the light and they shut down the wells.
Isaac received blessings from God and was ready to re-open the wells that his father opened for the world. The negative side fought to get hold of the channels of light forcing Isaac to dig another well. After God revealed himself, he built an altar to connect to YHVH. With that action he could open a well that would stay open until the time of Mashiach. This well is called ” שִׁבְעָה”, meaning ‘Seven’.
The Holy light in the Holy Land attracted many nations and empires to try and get a hold on this unique land. It is a place that supplies the light for the entire world.
The Greeks, Romans, Ottomans, British and even the Nazis tried to come to the Land of Israel but were stopped by the borders of Egypt.
None of these great empires could truly conquer and hold the Land as their own because they didn’t have the proper vessel for it.
The Israelites are ‘hidden’ all over the world so the negative side won’t try to destroy them. For six millennia the good side fights the bad side over the Light that comes to this world. Only when we arrive at the seventh millennia we will find the true water of life and peace. This is the secret of the ‘seventh’ well that Isaac dug for us.
