Midrash Rabbah, Chapter “Vayelech”: The Celestial Voice revealed to Moses the day of his death, “You have only one day to live.” Hearing this, Moses went from the camp of Levites (where his tent stood) to the camp of Israelites to say goodbye to the Jews and calm them, because they were alarmed by his imminent demise.
Torah, Deuteronomy 31:01 – 31:02: And Moses went, and he spoke the following words to all Israel. He said to them, “Today I am one hundred and twenty years old. I can no longer go or come, and the Lord said to me, “You shall not cross this Jordan.”
In the spiritual world, there are 125 degrees of its attainment. Moses passed 120 of them. Therefore, it is said that he lived 120 years.
Moses is an example of the highest degree that a soul can attain until its final correction. After all, there are five more degrees left that will be corrected only after absolutely all the souls existing in our world are pulled to the degree of Moses. Then the very last degree will be completed—the last five parts.
It is written: “You have only one day to live.” This ends the personal correction of Moses; he cannot advance further. After this, there will be the correction of absolutely all of Israel and then of the entire world aspiring to the Creator. This will happen at the end of days.
Question: Moses says: “The Lord said to me, ‘You shall not cross this Jordan.’” Is there still some kind of bitterness in him?
Answer: Indeed, how can this be?! The rest can cross the Jordan and Moses cannot? He is above all others! And he was not honored with entering the land of Israel, and women, old people, and children were honored! Moses is the highest quality of the common organism called “the people.” Therefore, he must stay.
The rest must enter the land of Israel and work on themselves: to build the First Temple, go into exile, build the Second Temple, and go into exile again. They must spread their desires like sparks among all the nations, meaning the huge common desire that is made up of all the peoples. Therefore, they enter there.
Moses remains just beyond the Jordan because his qualities cannot be broken. They are waiting for the moment when all the nations of the world will gather and reach the level of 120th degree, and then, together with Moses, they will reach the 125th degree, which is the world of Infinity.
