Message from Rabbi Nir Ben-Artzi Shalita
Parashat Balak, Tasha't
Delivered on Sunday, 4 Tamouz Tasha’t (7.7.19) | 8:30
Balak's power was the power of sorcery, of material, and the power of Balaam was spiritual, the power of speech. Balak saw that the people of Israel have a strong spiritual force that cannot be overcome and if one wants to harm them, it is possible only with the same power - with the same spiritual strength that the people of Israel have. "The Moabites said to the elders of Midian, “This horde is going to lick up everything around us, as an ox licks up the grass of the field." (Numbers 22: 4). Balak consults with his advisors and decides to use Balaam's power to curse the people of Israel.
Moses was great in prophecy from the side of holiness and purity, and Balaam was of the side of impurity. Today there is no power like Balaam's power, but there is a living Messiah on the side of holiness and purity.
Balaam wanted to curse the people of Israel and to hurt them with the power of speech.
The Amalekites had magical power; they could turn a man into an animal. When the Holy One, blessed be He, said to ask King Saul to kill Amalek, men and women, sheep, cattle and animals, the Amalekites turned themselves into sheep and cattle, and Saul who did not listen the Holy Voice, did not kill the animals. Hamas of today is from Amalek seed.
Why is Balaam's donkey mentioned so many times? It's just an animal. But Balaam's wife objected that he should curse Israel and she did not let him go. And because of Balaam's strength was from his wife and that he had to be unified with her in order to receive the tremendous power to curse; he turned her by the power of sorcery into a donkey. This is the donkey mentioned in the Torah. This donkey saw things that Balaam did not see. "When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord, it pressed close to the wall, crushing Balaam’s foot against it. So he beat the donkey again" (Numbers 22:25). The donkey broke Balaam's leg, scratched his legs against the wall and sat on them. "When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord, it lay down under Balaam, and he was angry and beat it with his staff. Then the Lord opened the donkey’s mouth, and it said to Balaam, “What have I done to you to make you beat me these three times?” (Numbers 22:27-28)
Even today there is magical power in the world, but not as Balaam had. A lot of it disappear and remained a very weak magical force.
There are many mediums in the world that use coffee, cards, etc. It is a very big mistake for a Jew to go to them, a very serious mistake for a Jew to go to places using the power of impurity. They know a little of the past but do not know the future. To lie, you must first say something true. They say some truth using the power of impurity, one thing is true, the other lie, third truth, fourth lie. When someone hears something right, he thinks they are like prophets, who have, heaven forbid, the Holy Spirit and believes them. They say their grandparents talk to them, or the angel Gabriel - a lie and a lie! Not the angel Gabriel, nor other angels, neither grandpa nor grandma. While they are doing yoga and relaxation, an evil spirit enters the world and searches for a body to enter. The ghosts disguise themselves and speak with the voice of their grandparents and they believe. There is no such thing in the world! Only gentiles use evil spirits and impurity. You cannot trust them. They are saying one true thing at first, you then believe they know everything about you and you follow them and fall in the mud. They infect the Jew with the most severe impurity.
When a person does relaxation and yoga and does not fall asleep, he cuts off the soul and spirit from the body, and the evil spirit that passes through the area, sticks to his body. The evil spirit masquerades and tells him stories and lies and tells him: 'I am your grandfather, your grandmother, I am your protector, I am your messenger and your guide.'
Dear Jews, instead of looking for all these things, follow the Ten Commandments and stick to the Holy One, blessed be He, He will help you a million times more than all these imaginations. The future of a Jew depends on his own free will. It all depends on him. If he chooses the right path, the way of life, the holy way, if he will try to do good deeds and choose every morning what good he will do today - this will give him a good future. A Jew who goes to various fortune-tellers, mediums, cheats and thieves, will not connect with the Holy One, blessed be He, will not serve the Holy One Blessed be He and will be blacker than black. Dear Jew, only the Holy One, blessed be He, will help you!
If you travel to the graves of the righteous, you should pray for the people of Israel. If a person goes to pray for himself, the righteous will hear him only if he does a complete repentance. And if you go to the tombs of the righteous - only in the Land of Israel and especially the patriarchs and matriarchs, they are the first before all. Since that in the prayer, of the eighteenth which is the main prayer, the patriarchs are mentioned in the first blessing. No other Righteous is mentioned, and if they are mentioned three times a day in prayer and in the blessing of food, it means that they are the supreme leading force over everything. So why do you travel to the tombs of the righteous abroad? There is no need. It is also written in the Holy Zohar and in the holy books, that a vertebra from the spine of the Righteous, Ezem Luz, breaks down, rolls through tunnels and reaches the Cave of the Patriarchs. Like Jacob who make his son swore to bury him next to his forefathers and not in the dirt of Egypt.
The Afrashat challah (blessing on the bread) is only performed on Fridays in honor of Shabbat. Groups of women will do Afrashat challah together in their home and share the challah. Do not make challah in the middle of the week, just as you do not light Sabbath candles in the middle of the week. This is called 'challot Shabbat' not ' challot of the week'. It is possible only for the wife of the rabbi of the city or community, who teaches young brides to do Afrashat challah. But not for business purposes! It is forbidden to do business with the power of Torah, holiness and purity. When there is disrespect of Hashem, a person is in danger of life because of this!
There must be no civil war between Jews! Without any distinction, without wisdom, intelligence and knowledge. The demonstrations of the Ethiopian community, only 20-30% of them were Ethiopians, 80% of them were from other peoples, gentiles, Sudanese, people who press and incite the innocent Ethiopians who do not know who against whom. To each one will come his own time, the Blessed One is waiting for everyone, He will not give up to anyone, and everyone will receive exactly what he merits. Dear Jews, do not make demonstrations, it angers the Holy One, blessed be He. In demonstrations last week, hundreds of weddings were destroyed, doctors did not arrive in departments on time, many patients left the world, pregnant women, things that are very difficult and in Heaven they will not forgive. You have to talk to the leaders of the State of Israel, do not disturb the traffic, do not disturb the people. Public trouble is a very big sin. Disturbing people's traffic, block roads, harassing people who spend hours in the car, hungry, thirsty, needing toilet, it's a very big sin! We need to get permission for a demonstration and to hold a demonstration in front of the government ministries and the leaders of the people. No one is allowed to block roads; it is a very big sin and will not be forgiven from heaven! There is no reason to justify blocking roads. People return home, older people, sick people waiting for salvation, pregnancies, doctors and hospital workers, people who need to go abroad, women who give birth. Many patients died, weddings and celebrations were canceled, many things.
All the right-wing parties, the Holy One, blessed be He, commands you to unite! It is enough to fight for honor and pride, fight for the right that will succeed and rise. All right-wing parties join together with the Likud. No matter who will head the party, it does not determine anything.
Iran is threatening using nuclear. It is been watched. They know everything that happens in Iran every minute. Iran is afraid because Syria is being erased from day to day.
US gave special permission to Israel to blow up the plant in Iran if necessary. And not only the United States, but a few other countries have given Israel a permit that if, heaven forbid, something happens, Israel may go to bomb Iran's nuclear reactor.
Asia if they do not flow with the US, they will starve for bread.
The Israeli government must not feel sorry for Hamas. Do not reach any compromise with them. They are cheaters, do not compromise with them, they are gaining strength and more power to surprise Israel. They do not want peace. Why are they getting stronger? Because Israel flows with them, what they want 'take.' Israel must stop these gifts to Fatah, Hamas and the Palestinians, including Hebron, East Jerusalem, Jenin, Nablus and more. They lie, they do not want peace, they want to fight with the people of Israel.
Egypt listen to the United States and Israel, receives money, receives protection and silence Hamas every time. Sisi gets a good budget. Sisi is a wise and smart man who prefers good money to support and feed Egypt and not to get in trouble and have all of Egypt destroyed.
Jordan is waiting for the plan of the century. It is flooded with infiltrators and refugees who eat it every day.
In Europe the Muslims and the infiltrators are spreading enormously, horribly and frighteningly over all Europe.
Italy In a little while it will become all Muslims.
Hezbollah Nasrallah swells up in front of Israel. The IDF monitors him every day. He cannot raise his head.
Syria was a very strong power to connect all the links between Iran, Hezbollah, Jordan, Egypt, the Gaza Strip. Now the links has been broken and Syria is being eaten from day to day until it will be erased from this world. If Syria was as powerful as a few years ago, the Middle East had a different face, a very crooked face and endless destruction. With continuously killing, destruction and bloodshed. This is a decision of the Holy One, blessed be He, and no one can appeal about it. The Holy One, blessed be He, is angry at what they did in the Yom Kippur War to the Jews, and the cries of the IDF soldiers are heard in the sky until now! Syria has been paying for it for years and will pay until it will be erased. The Creator has neither forgiven nor pardons and kills the Syrian leadership because they behaved like wild beasts.
Turkey is ready, in tension and fear, little by little, a new regime will emerge. Isis controls Erdogan and Erdogan loses direction.
Iraq No control, nothing.
Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Qatar In favor of the US. They want to be Europeans and do not care about the Palestinians, Hamas, Jihad, and not all these primitive .
Anti-Semitism is very difficult , intensifying day by day, not letting go, only constantly disturbing all countries. Every day they beat the Jews, hit them, expel them, abuse them abroad, and it will not pass, but will only increase until they reach a situation in which their actions against the Jews will intensify and become crueler. The Israeli economy is fine. Let them release the permit to build and build endlessly. Millions of Jews need to reach Israel and need homes. Do not stop construction in Israel! The land of Israel, the land of the deer, grow by an inch every day. Like a baby in his mother's womb that grew from a small drop to the body and bones, like a small seed in the ground that grows into a giant eucalyptus, so does the Holy Land! The Holy Land grows in a round a centimeter every day.
In the world will continue floods, tsunamis, harsh winds, fires, earthquakes, all kinds of natural disasters, accidents and airplanes, cars, trains troubles, the world has lost its direction.
The Creator of the universe confuses the whole world, makes the Tower of Babel so all will cling to Messiah.
Parents keep your children away from assimilation, drugs, alcohol and gambling, do not give up!
The Holy One blessed be He "All the evil, the complications, the slander and the free hatred in the Land of Israel, all the complicated cities and the complications of the Knesset among the hundred and twenty members of the Knesset, all the tribulations and problems, are the shells that descend and push the Messiah King to be revealed! All the most difficult things that are happening now, this unclear darkness before the light, pushes, lifts up and raises the King Messiah to be revealed in public! Everyone, every house, people are shouting and suffering terribly. All of them, without exception, rich and poor, sick and healthy. All this pressure, trouble on top of trouble, we do not know what the day will be, free hatred, evil, complications, harsh demonstrations, confused government, the Holy One, Blessed be He, gave them the Tower of Babel, diseases, trouble and agony- all are the shells that descend from Heaven and push the Messiah King to be revealed! Everyone yells and wants Messiah to come out in public. Anyone who cries out and asks for the Creator from his heart, at home, in the car, and wherever that Messiah will be revealed - will have the right to be in the first circle. Messiah works and acts and cares for the entire State of Israel. Waiting to see him in public. When he comes out in public the world will change in good and blessings! Messiah will go out into public - there will be peace and quiet! It is the strong darkness before the great light!
