“וַיֹּאמֶר, לְהַשְׁמִידָם: לוּלֵי, מֹשֶׁה בְחִירוֹ– עָמַד בַּפֶּרֶץ לְפָנָיו לְהָשִׁיב חֲמָתוֹ, מֵהַשְׁחִית”
“Therefore he said he would destroy them— had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him, to turn away his wrath from destroying them.”
The Zohar quotes this verse and explains that as long as there is a Tzadik in the world judgment can not control the world.
Because of this spiritual principal, God brings the righteous to him to allow the negative side to do its work with the people. Isaiah 57:1 “For the righteous man is taken away from evil”
Joseph was righteous like his father. When Joseph went into exile, and Jacob thought he died, the Shechina left him and the world went into darkness and famine spread throughout the world.
When Joseph took over the control over Egypt he had seven fruitful years then when Jacob came down to Egypt, the famine stopped and Egypt flourished again.
When Joseph died, the Isarelites lost his protecition and the Egyptians decided to take advantage of them.
Exodus 1:10 “הָבָה נִתְחַכְּמָה, לוֹ: פֶּן-יִרְבֶּה”
“Come, let us be wiser than them, so they won’t multiply”
We are experiencing a famine of light. Many Tzadikim in Israel and around the world left us and the negative side is growing. Corrupted leaders, wars, greed, radical Islam around the world go after the head of the Jews and Christians and many other representatives of the negative side are in control.
For some of you it is far and for some it’s a threat down the street.
We should be wiser that them and take the literal secret of the verse to our side. We should connect to Chokmah (Wisdom) with our prayers and positive actions so the negative side won’t grow and spread beyond control.
