The angel Metat- also reveals that the three branches are for the three patriarchs and the four angels. The three related angels are Michael, Uriel and Raphael. The fourth is the angel Gabriel that is always with Malchut. When Malchut rises for a connection to reveal light he carries her up.
“וַיִּרְכַּב עַל כְּרוּב וַיָּעֹף וַיֵּדֶא עַל כַּנְפֵי רוּחַ.”
“He rode upon a cherub and flew; And He sped upon the wings of the wind.”
Gabriel like Malchut is from the Left and they stay together. He can not express his force unless Malchut reveals light in the up direction that is the aspect of flying.
Rabbi Elazar and Rabbi Aba expressed wonder about this revelation and kissed the child together with the other friends that were present there. They praised him and his holy spirit for the revelations related to the wine. Rabbi Elazar also gave blessings to God saying ; ‘Blessed is the merciful that brought me here’.
We should appreciate and give thanks to those who reveal light in our lives. At the same time we give thanks to God for bringing us closer to those who can channels the light to the world.
