Tikkun 69 – 69
At the beginning God was sending sustenance to the negative side, that is Sam-el and his camps, through the angel Gabriel.
With the increased level of sins made by the Israelites, some of the light given to them by God went to the negative side. Now their support from God comes through the Israelites.
“ דַּבֵּר וְאָמַרְתָּ כֹּה-אָמַר אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה, הִנְנִי עָלֶיךָ פַּרְעֹה מֶלֶךְ-מִצְרַיִם, הַתַּנִּים הַגָּדוֹל, הָרֹבֵץ בְּתוֹךְ יְאֹרָיו: אֲשֶׁר אָמַר לִי יְאֹרִי, וַאֲנִי עֲשִׂיתִנִי”
“speak, and say: Thus saith YHVH GOD: behold, I am against thee, Pharaoh King of Egypt, the great dragon that lieth in the midst of his rivers, that hath said: My river is mine own, and I have made it for myself. ”
This verse reveals to us that Pharaoh claimed to have all the powers over the level of Malchut. He received his energy from Sam-el and the Negative side. The Zohar tells us that Pharaoh saw his master, Sam-el, with ten different crowns, which means complete control over Malchut. That was true and because of the strong control of the negative side YHVH had to reveal himself and deliver the Israelites out of Egypt, where they lost all their connection to the YHVH, the God of their fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Pharaoh was true to his words when he said that he didn’t know who or what YHVH was.
“ וַיֹּאמֶר פַּרְעֹה–מִי יְהוָה אֲשֶׁר אֶשְׁמַע בְּקֹלוֹ, לְשַׁלַּח אֶת-יִשְׂרָאֵל: לֹא יָדַעְתִּי אֶת-יְהוָה, וְגַם אֶת-יִשְׂרָאֵל לֹא אֲשַׁלֵּחַ”
“And Pharaoh said: ‘Who is YHVH, that I should hearken unto His voice to let Israel go? I know not YHVH, and moreover I will not let Israel go.’”
YHVH took the Israelites out of Egypt, gave them the Torah and the Oral Torah, which is the secrets of the Torah that we know as Kabbalah. With that, they can have constant connection to YHVH and won’t lose their spiritual roots.
When the Israelites follow the ways of the Torah, they receive the energy of protection keep and enjoy the energy and the protection of God. When they don’t follow, they lose the energy to the other side.
“ כִּי אִם-עֲוֹנֹתֵיכֶם, הָיוּ מַבְדִּלִים, בֵּינֵכֶם, לְבֵין אֱלֹהֵיכֶם; וְחַטֹּאותֵיכֶם, הִסְתִּירוּ פָנִים מִכֶּם—מִשְּׁמוֹעַ.”
“But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear”
When we keep our ways in purity as the Torah guides us, then we are close to YHVH, otherwise the curtains and Klipot that we create block the light and we experience chaos.
“וְרָאוּ כָּל-עַמֵּי הָאָרֶץ, כִּי שֵׁם יְהוָה נִקְרָא עָלֶיךָ; וְיָרְאוּ, מִמֶּךָּ”
“And all the peoples of the earth shall see that the name of YHVH is called upon thee; and they shall be afraid of thee.”
The purpose of Torah and Kabbalah are to give us protection from the other side. The connection and study reveal garments of light on you and push away chaos and darkness.
