Baal HaSulam, “Messiah’s Shofar:” The revelation of Kabbalah to all the nations is the revelation of Eliyahu (Elijah). And this task was said about Eliyahu the prophet, since the disclosure of the secrets of the Torah is always referred to as “the disclosure of Eliyahu.” It is as they have said, “Let it rest until Elijah comes,” and also, “the Tishbi will answer the questions and problems.” For this reason, they said that three days (a known intimation) prior to the coming of the Messiah, Elijah would walk upon the hilltops and will blow in a great horn, etc.
Does that mean that we shouldn’t disseminate the wisdom of Kabbalah? Will someone come, blow some great horn, and the entire world suddenly will wake up? Could some force descend upon everyone? What if we are doing something that we shouldn’t? What if we are corrupting instead of correcting?
Actually, we have to do our best to disseminate. Its success all over the world is called the “revelation of Eliyahu.” If the wisdom of Kabbalah spreads throughout the world, even on different levels of understanding, it will be a sign that we have attained the “three days before the coming of the Messiah.”
This is actually what we should aspire for, but it depends on our unity, on how strong the connection is among us. We must convey the message to the entire world through the strings that are stretched between the souls and through the external media.
It doesn’t matter how people receive it, whether in a good way or in a bad way. The main thing is to disseminate so that people will know that the people of Israel have a special wisdom that is meant for the correction of the world. Eventually, it will be accepted.
Question: So, why do we hesitate and not go for the clear message about the only remedy that the world needs? The partial, gradual explanations only prolong time and can complicate the transition to Kabbalistic knowledge. Why should we stall when there is no time left?
Answer: True. Why shouldn’t we turn directly to the Jewish people? Friends, we belong to the nation of Israel, which means that we yearn straight to the Creator, Yashar El.
We must connect the “nations of the world” with the Creator—those who know nothing and who don’t want to know and will not find anything in a distant place. So, leave yourselves and take care of them!
However, who actually will take care of them? It is a good question since one needs to think before one acts. I want to bring contentment to the Creator by bringing the nations of the world closer to Him because He wanted to give them the method of correction first.
However, we need the power to bring them closer to Him. We are messengers; we are a link. So, how can we carry out our mission? In order to do that, we need a spiritual force, so, first, we have to connect.
We must be grateful each time that the Creator enables us to do that, to connect, in order to fulfill our mission and to bring the nations of the world closer to Him. It is through that that we bring Him contentment.
This is an oxymoron: He loves us because of our role, and He loves the nations because of their closeness. They are the true vessels for receiving the abundance. We are closer to the Creator only during the time of fulfilling our mission while, in the end of correction when everything becomes one whole, the greatest and cruelest vessels of the nations of the world will reveal the greatest Light and will attain the strongest adhesion.
