Torah, Deuteronomy 31:17 – 31:18: And My fury will rage against them on that day, and I will abandon them and hide My face from them, and they will be consumed, and many evils and troubles will befall them, and they will say on that day, “Is it not because our God is no longer among us, that these evils have befallen us?”
And I will hide My face on that day, because of all the evil they have committed, when they turned to other deities.
However, a person begins to understand that desires opposite to the Creator are revealed within him. It becomes clear to him from where and why everything comes. He feels that the Creator is hiding from him. This is already a premonition of the future revelation.
Question: Is this called good from the Creator’s side?
Answer: Of course. If I realize that the Creator is in concealment now because of my incorrect egoistic desires in which I feel this concealment, then I can ask for them to be corrected. Thus, my suffering will no longer be egoistic because I want to reveal the Creator in order to acquire the desire to bestow.
Then it is possible to demand, plead, and raise MAN—a prayer. And the Creator corrects the person’s desire and is revealed in the corrected desire.
Comment: The Creator says: “And they will be consumed, and many evils and troubles will befall them.” Yet, you are saying that it is the highest goodness. There are a lot of contradictions.
Answer: We are talking about those degrees where a person no longer feels any problems. He is ready for anything, only to continue revealing the Creator further. It is just a repose for him.
