“God Said to Me, I Will Personally Introduce You to One Like Moses!”

A prophet is a person who is called by God to speak on his behalf. At times, the prophet is given a vision of the future, but for the most part, his work is in the present. He is to instruct the people about what God says about their current situation. In Deuteronomy, God promised to Moses that there would come a future prophet whose work would be even greater. The people understood that this would be the proclaimer of the Messiah, and when Jesus appeared and he began to preach, they’d recognized him as the fulfillment of God’s promise.

Deuteronomy 18:15-18English Standard Version

A New Prophet like Moses

15 “The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brothers—it is to him you shall listen— 16 just as you desired of the Lord your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly, when you said, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God or see this great fire any more, lest I die.’ 17 And the Lord said to me, ‘They are right in what they have spoken. 18 I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers. And I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him. 

The Word of God for the Children of God. In Excelsis Deo! Alleluia! Amen.

As Moses approached the end of his life, he wrote the Book of Deuteronomy. He includes in that Book a sure and certain promise from God; that promise, God would send another like Moses to teach them. God did, God sent His Prophets into the affairs and works of mankind. From the great prophets Elijah to Elisha, from Isaiah through Malachi to John the Baptizer, God then sent His Son Jesus.

Remember in Exodus when the Children of Israel gathered at the foot of Mount Sinai to receive the Ten Commandments. There, from the top of Sinai, God had spoken to them in thunder and lightning, out of the midst of the fire and thick darkness. God spoke to the first two commandments to them directly; every word made their ears howl and their hearts and their soul’s tremble with fear.

They were so terrified that the whole congregation was ready to die with fear. In this fright, they begged God would not speak to them in this manner anymore, they could not bear it; it overwhelmed and distracted them. They begged Moses that God would speak to them by men like themselves, by Moses then, and afterwards by other prophets like unto him.

God agreed with the people’s righteous pleas and Moses did too. As Moses approached the end of his life, he wrote the people the Book of Deuteronomy. He includes in that Book a sure and certain promise from God; that promise, God would send another like Moses to teach them. God did, God sent Jesus.

Here is the promise of a great prophet, with a command to receive him and hearken to him.

A. I believe this scripture refers to the promise of a succession of Hebrew (old) Testament prophets we read of and learn from. Besides the priests and Levites, whose task was to teach God’s law, the Israelites would have need of prophets to reprove them for their faults, to remind them of their duty, to foretell things to come, to warn them of divine judgments and deliverances for their deeds.

1. Having these prophets, unlike the pagans, they need not use divinations nor consult with familiar spirits for they might enquire of God’s prophets even concerning their private affairs as Saul did when he was in quest of his father’s herds, 1 Samuel 9:6.

2. With the prophets among the Israelites, they could not miss the way or manner of their duty through ignorance or mistake for the prophets warned them continually. In every doubtful case, the people of Israel heard the cry of the prophets. Deuteronomy 34:10 these prophets were like unto Moses in many respects though in other ways, far inferior to him in overall leadership qualities.

B. It is legitimately arguable whether a succession of prophets ought to be included in this promise or not, we are sure and certain that it is primarily intended as a promise of Christ for God says that he will send “a prophet”.

Further, this is the clearest promise of Christ in all the Law of Moses. Acts 3:22 and 7:37 say this promise expressly applies to our Lord Jesus, the promised One. John 6:14 says “This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world”, and 1 Peter 1:11 that his Spirit spoke in all the other prophets, the spirit of Christ.

1. What God promised Moses at Mount Sinai in Deuteronomy 18:18 is the coming of Christ.

a. That there should come a prophet, great, above all the prophets, by whom God would make known himself and his will to the children of men more fully and clearly than ever he had done before.

b. John 8:12 says that he is the “light of the world.” John 1:1-5 and Hebrews 1:1-2 says that he is the Word by whom God speaks to us.

c. That God would “raise him up from the midst of them.” In his birth he should be one of that nation, should live among them and be sent to them. He was to be “raised up at Jerusalem”, thence his doctrine should go forth into all the world. Thus God, having raised up his Son, Jesus the Christ, He sent him to bless us all.

d. That he should be like unto Moses, only as much above him as the other prophets came short of him. Moses was such a prophet as was a lawgiver to Israel and their deliverer out of Egypt, and so was Christ: Jesus was not only a great prophet he saved and still does save souls in our times. Moses was the founder of a new dispensation by signs and wonders and mighty deeds. Christ by miracles proved himself a teacher come from God. Moses was faithful. So was the Messiah. Moses came as a servant, but Jesus Christ came as a Son.

d. Deuteronomy 18:18 says that God would put his words in his mouth. What messages God had to send to the children of men he would send them by him and give him full instructions what to say and do as a prophet. In John 7:16, our Savior says, “My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.” This Prophet has come. Immanuel, God who IS with US and God who IS within US, it is he alone that should come, it is he alone whom we proclaim, we are to look for no other.

C. John 1:14 proclaims the One like Moses, “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

Thus, in answer to the request of those struck with amazement by the law, God promised not just the great pantheon of His Prophets “to prepare the way of the Lord” but the genuine future incarnation of his Son, though we may suppose it to be far from the thoughts of those that made request before Moses and God.

Not only did God, through Moses, promise that Jesus would be a prophet like unto Moses,

A. through the ages, many prophets told that Jesus was coming.

1. It was by Abraham’s seed that all the families of the earth are to be blessed.

2. Later in the Old Testament, we are told that One is to be a king like David, a prince of peace as Solomon.

3. His kingdom is to be without succession and without end; Isaiah said, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, the government shall be upon his shoulder.”

4. “Behold, the virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”

5. Micah 5:2 predicts that the Messiah of the Jews would be born in Bethlehem.

6. Gabriel told Zachariah and Elizabeth things were about to happen.

7. The Virgin Mary saw Gabriel and believed.

8. God spoke to Joseph in a dream.

9. The Wise men saw a star.

10. The Sheppards heard the angles announce his birth. Since then we have learned much.

B. So how should we view Messiah Jesus?

1. Jesus was far more than a baby born in a stable and laid in a manger.

2. If you have not meet Jesus, give me the honor to introduce him to you.

3. His credits are too long to list. He has done the impossible time after time.

4. He comes to us out of a manger in Bethlehem of Judah by way of heaven.

5. His mother was blessed beyond all women of the world.

6. His Father is the author of a Book that has been on the bestseller list since the beginning of time.

7. He holds the record for the greatest fish fry. He feed 5,000 hungry souls with just two fish and five loaves of bread.

8. He can walk on water, turn water into wine — no special effects, no camera tricks.

9. Symbols reminding us of Him are in every Christian Church across the world.

Finally,

10. I proclaim unto each of you readers today and in the future, that Christ is the Word of God, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the Bright and Morning Star, the Ruler of the Universes, the Author of Life, the Word, the Word of God, the Light of the World, the Second Adam, the Lamb of God, the King of kings, the King of the Jews, the Lion of Judah, the Lord, and the Lord of Lords.

Some call him Wonderful Counselor, and others the Rose of Sharon, the Lily of the Valley. He is our Advisor, the Deliverer, the Holy and Righteous One, the Anointed One, the High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek, Rabboni, Prince of Peace, The Head of the Church. He is Immanuel, Yehoshua, Son of David, the Son of Man, the Savior of the world, the Christ, the Son of the Most-High God, the Messiah, He is The Son of David, finally, He is the only begotten Son of God.

What are we now going to do in these contemporary of times to introduce Him?

In the name of Yahweh, the Father, Yahweh the Son and Yahweh the Holy Spirit, let us now graciously, humbly, reverently enter His throne room and Pray,

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your written word and for the living Word, who was made flesh, and dwelt amongst us. Thank You that He spoke words of life and hope to all who would trust on His name. Thank You for Jesus, our mighty Prophet, praying Priest and coming King, who offered-up Himself as the sacrifice for our sin – so whosoever believes on Him would not perish, but have everlasting life. Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Amen.

One thought on ““God Said to Me, I Will Personally Introduce You to One Like Moses!””

  1. REAL JUDAISM @wordpress.com Maimonides 13 Principles; #12 – The Messianic Era Rabbi Mordechai Blumenfeld
    My Response:

    Oppose the 13 principles of faith. Torah faith centers upon Justice Justice Pursue. This creed theology exists as assimilation to Xtian avodah zarah. A hard fast rule that shuts down missionaries on the spot: The question – ‘Which Torah commandment did the prophet Shemuel learn as the יסוד of the commandment to anoint the Houses of Shaul and David’? Talk of Moshiach without the Torah … just reactionary non sense\narishkeit/ in Yiddish.

    The unique quality of Torah commandments – their universal applicability. For example: Tefillah in the place of korbanot; the Sages learn Torah commandments to apply to Klall Israel, and not to some hoped for-future born Man. Difficulty: the laws of niddah do not apply to men. But the laws of tumah and modesty – which the mussar commandment of niddah instructs as the most essential נמשל of niddah – DOES equally apply to Men. Torah commandments command mussar. The Ramban’s introduction to the Chumash refers to ‘Black Fire on White Fire’. It seems a valid interpretation of this kaballistic metaphor: משל\\נמשל. Rabbi Waldman, one of my Yeshiva instructors at D’var Yerushalim, taught me that students of the Talmud had to develop the skill, to continually make דיוקים when they learn any page of Gemarah.

    This skill of bi-polar inference making, it efficiently separates learning a page of Gemarah from reading a page of Gemarah. This same יסוד equally applies to learning the T’NaCH — “How much more so”. The mitzvah of Moshiach learns from Moshe anointing the House of Aaron. As the Talmud affixes the mitzva of tefillah to korbanot, so too the prophet Shmuel affixed the mitzva of Moshiach to the concept of “king”. Blessings, according to the halachah require שם ומלכות. The משל ‘king’, has the נמשל of dedicated tohor middot, to sally forth and fight the wars between the two opposing Yatzirot within the heart.

    What mussar does kingship instruct which elevates a blessing from that of a praise – as found in say — Tehillem? Learning requires בינה. This key term, the Gemarah defines as discerning between like from like; ‘learning a subject in the midst of another subject’. Do you see the דיוק made upon the language of the Talmud? משל\\נמשל a defining technique of instruction which Talmudic literature continually relies upon and employs.

    Learning how to learn Torah and Talmudic Primary sources requires students to acquire these most basic & necessary skills. Learning a page of T’NaCH or Gemarah, simply does not compare to reading a page of T’NaCH or Gemarah. Both T’NaCH and Talmud base the Order of any page upon their יסוד of sugiot. Oral Torah, whether learned from a T’NaCH or Talmudic sources learns by way of precedents. The Mishnah bases its Common Law Case\\Rule style upon the common law comparison of sugiot discipline which a חכם learns from T’NaCH literature.

    What caused the curse of ירידת הדורות? Compare what the Xtian church abomination did to their corrupt Bible translations, to how assimilated Rambam organized his code of law. בינה requires the discipline and critical eye that can separate and discern between like from like. Both the corrupt Biblical Xtian translators, and the Rambam’s code of halachah, bear striking resemblances. The foreign Xtians, who translated their bibles into their own image, they up-rooted the Order of Sugiot and replaced that Order with their foreign, alien, arbitrarily imposed, Chapters and verses. How a person organizes thoughts in the mind, radically changes what that same person thereafter perceives or believes. O, D, G … G0D or DOG.

    After the Rambam, Jews became addicted to learning our Primary Sources of faith by means of commentaries. Contrast the Baali Tosafot commentary to the Talmud. The Baali Tosafot quoted the Rambam all of twice. Both times, in their commentary to the Talmud, they argued against his opinion. Why does the style of Baali Tosafot learning continually jump from off the page and bring some other Talmudic source from different Gemarah sources? Answer: the Baali Tosafot strived to duplicate how the Gemarah learns a specific Case\Rule Mishna.

    The Rambam code closely resembles the errors made by the bible translators. (1) He cherry picked halachot comparable to how the New Testament authors cherry picked T’NaCH p’sukim\\verses. (2) He up-rooted the sugiot within the Order of the Talmud and replaced it with chapters and topic headlines. (3) Most damning — He confused Oral Torah logic with Law. Contrast how the B’hag, the Rif and the Rosh organized their codifications with that of the absurd & obtuse Rambam code. These opposite\\tohor codes of law, they did not cherry pick halachot as did the Rambam code. The Order of the Rambam halachot strikingly separates and distinguishes itself from the opposing tohor codes. Gone – the ability to compare a precedent halachah to its specific Case\\Rule Mishna.

    Logic compares cases. The Mishna employs a Case\\Rule common law style. The Gemarah brings halachot pulled from throughout the 6 Orders of the Mishna to compare that precent halachah to this Case\\Rule Mishna. The style of the Gemarah: Difficulty\\Answer. Why this style? The Gemarah brings precedents to compare (Oral Torah logic) them to the Case\\Rule of a specific Mishna. All post Rambam scholarship made upon his code, they universally validate the error of the Rambam’s failure to include exactly from where he culled his specific halachic rulings from the Talmud. Alas the ירידת הדורות curse, they could quote a theoretical Gemarah source, which contained a similar halachic ruling as the Rambam included within his tumah code of law, but they failed, all commentaries made upon the Yad ha-Chazaka, to compare that halachic precedent, which that tumah code originally cherry picked, to make a depth analysis of that specific Case\\Rule Mishna! Worlds separate logic from law, just as do Torah commandments of mussar – heaven and earth apart – from Courtroom legal rulings of halachic law.

    The study of Talmud compares to weaving two separate fabrics together. The Difficulty\\Answer style of Gemarah which learned the Case\\Rule style of the Mishna. The Gemarah learns through the logic of making comparisons or contrasts through the medium of halachic precedents – with the explicit purpose of achieving a depth analysis of the intent\\k’vanna// of the language of Rabbi Yechuda’s Case\\Rule Mishna. This learning by way of bringing precedents — it defines how to learn both T’NaCH and Talmudic literature. The much later Talmud follows the sh’itta of learning originally established by the far earlier חכמים who authored the T’NaCH.

    The Rambam code destroyed this discipline of learning. Instead of instructing students to learn how to understand\\discern// between like and like, this tumah code rebelled against the kabbalah of פרדס taught by Rabbi Akiva and all the talmudim of Rabbi Akiva – the rabbis whose opinions the Sha’s Yerushalmi\\Bavli brings. The Rambam compares to the princes whom Moshe the prophet sent to spy out the land; to the Great Man Korach who challenged the commandments which Moshe learned by means of the Oral Torah revelation of logic @ Horev. His code changed the intent\\k’vanna// of learning, which compares a Case to an earlier precedent … unto a focus upon the end product: what is the halachah? His code ripped the Aggadic\\Halachic fabric which ironically shapes and determines “משנה תורה”, the Xtian name by which he baptized his silly code! This key term, משנה תורה, another name for the Book of דברים, has the interpretation meaning of “Legislative Review”. The wisdom of prioritizing the mussar commandments as the k’vanna of the forms of law — halachot, most essentially defines the meaning of משנה תורה\\דברים//.

    The New Testament writers would confuse Torah commandments with law. Law, from both the Mishna and Gemarah, comes from Court judicial rulings. Torah commandments command mussar. Mussar simply not the same as law. Confusing Torah commandments with law for ever witnesses, testifies, and denounces, the creation of the false religion known as Xtianity.

    The apostle Paul, by way of precedent, he perverted the Torah mussar of g’lut, as told in the stories of the expulsion of Adam from the Garden, Noach exiled in his Ark, and Avram at the brit cut between the pieces,,, with ‘Original Sin’. This theology uprooted the mussar of g’lut\exile – the Torah blessing\curse responsibility of faith – it set the New Testament upon a perverted tangential course of faith,,, that corrupt man required the death and resurrection of some phoney messiah in order to save Man from sin and death. An unheard of faith that never caused the hairs of our forefathers to stand on end in dread and fear.

    After the Rambam code – came the ירידת הדורות. Students of the T’NaCH and Talmud stopped learning by comparing precedents! They relied solely upon later commentaries rather than searching the Primary sources for precedents – like as did the Baali Tosafot – the grand children of Rashi. Post Rambam, especially among Achronim pilpul “scholars” – whose published works but slightly compare to the common law way of learning by means of precedents, their fuzzy learning confused comparing two competitive Reshon commentaries made on the Talmud with Primary source precedents. Their perverse logic split hairs to a degree, that when Yeshiva students return home for shabbot, that they discuss any and everything other than their learning that week in Yeshiva.

    Students stopped learning the B’hag, Rif, Rosh, commentaries of halachah as a definitive set of Gemarah halachot which require a study of the logic that compares these halachic precedents, set aside as קודש, to learn a depth analysis of the specific Case\\Rule Mishna. Rather, the focus of Yeshiva learning shifts to debates over what qualifies as the halachah, and all that that entails. A subtle but distinct shift to a tangential different subject all together. The ירידת הדורות scholarship of the Tur and Shulkan Aruch codifications of Halachah. These ירידת הדורות commentaries upon commentaries upon commentaries on the halachah…. Gone from Jewish consciousness, the revelation of Oral Torah logic first revealed @ Horev. Comparable to the post apostle Paul theology of ‘Original Sin’ which uprooted the Torah concept of g’lut from both the New Testament and all later generations of Xtian church folk; GONE: their mental awareness of g’lut from the story of the expulsion of Adam from the garden of Eden.

    Assimilation learns from the negative commandment: the ways of Egypt and Canaan – do not follow. The folk of Egypt and Canaan no more accepted the revelation of the Torah at Sinai than have the believers of JeZeus and Mohammad. Following the publication of the Rambam code began the ירידת הדורות experienced by g’lut Jewry. The opening Mishna of גיטין teaches that g’lut Jewry had already lost the knowledge how to do mitzvot לשמה. Jews cannot keep and observe Torah commandments in g’lut – a Torah curse of g’lut itself. That the Rambam code duplicates the errors of the Xtian church biblical translators repeated abominations — testifies that Jews in g’lut worship other Gods.

    REAL JUDAISM@wordpress.com Moshiach and the World Today by Rabbi Pinchas Winston
    My Response:

    [[[“””The smallest shall become a thousand, and the least, a mighty nation. I am the Lord, in its time, I will hasten it. (Isaiah 60:22)

    According to tradition, the prophet Isaiah was referring to the future arrival of the savior of the Jewish people — Moshiach ben Dovid — Moshiach, a descendant of King David, from the tribe of Yehudah. There are many similar references to his eventual arrival in the Jewish Bible and subsequent commentaries, and this is one of the most-discussed concepts in Torah literature.”””]]]

    Clearly ישעיה bases his mussar upon the precedent of the gaulah of Israel from Egypt. A precedent comparative sugia: ז:ג-ח:ד The early aggaditah of mussar teaches: in the span of time that a woman conceives and gives birth shall come the disaster of Assyria, who conquers the kingdom of Israel and besieges Jerusalem. It concludes with the prophet’s wife conceiving and birthing a child. Which confirms the 9 month window, prior to the destruction of g’lut. This sugia contrasts with ס:א-כב whose aggaditah teaches a mussar of geulah. Another precedence, cross reference to שמואל א יד:יב- מה.

    Blessed\Cursed, upon this oath brit sworn at Sinai stands both Geulah & G’lut. HaShem wars against the Gods whom the Goyim worship and Israel stands victorious in battle; Israel breaks faith with the oath brit, HaShem does not war against the Gods whom the Goyim worship and Israel falls in defeat before the army of the enemy. King Shaul placed his fear of the people above his fear of swearing a false oath in the Name of HaShem; from this יסוד stands the collapse and downfall of his rule as the anointed Moshiach king of Israel.

    The aggaditah mussar which the NaCH learns by means of precedents teaches how to learn the k’vanna of the all the prophets, specifically ישעיה ס:כב. The church abomination culls p’sukim and learns them totally out of contexts of their containment sugia. G-d forbid that Jews assimilate and duplicate the tumah of this abomination.

    [[[“””To appreciate the importance of Moshiach’s arrival, one must first appreciate that the Jewish people are in exile, as we have been for thousands of years. “””]]] Jews in g’lut, according to the opening Mishna of גיטין lost the wisdom how to do and keep mitzvot לשמה. How to learn and study prophetic aggadic mussar through the Oral Torah discipline of learning; learning by way of precedents. Herein defines the disaster of g’lut for the Jewish people.

    [[[“””This is true even with the present-day State of Israel; “exile”from a Torah perspective can occur even when the Jews are living in Israel, as was the case during the Greek Exile (319-139 BCE) which ended with the miracles of Chanukah.”””]]] The lights of Chanukah – Israel dedicated our Will through a formal oath – not to learn and interpret the Written Torah with any other logic format other than the Oral Torah logic format revealed at Horev. G’lut Jewry has long ago abandoned and broke faith with this solemn oath. G’lut Jewry lives under the cursed Moshiach of king Shaul who likewise cursed himself and his House by swearing a Torah oath and later violating the oath which he formally swore before the nation of Israel in the Name of HaShem.

    [[[“””In other words, “exile”, from a Torah-perspective, is defined as “anything short of a complete and perfect Torah society living on the Land of Israel under the leadership of Moshiach.”””]]]. NO. Absolutely not accurate. Torah faith stands upon: Justice Justice Pursue. G’lut Jewry, as stateless refugee exiles who have no country of their own — they possess no power to pursue justice. Only in the oath sworn lands, there and only there, then and only then, when Israel rules the land, as opposed to some vile British Mandate 1922-1948, do Jewish rulers hold the reins of Justice responsibility within their hands.

    [[[“””That will be a time when all nations will accept the existence of God, and the need for devotion to Him.”””]]] NO. Absolutely not accurate. All the nations stood and rejected the revelation of the Torah at Sinai! Upon this precedent stands the mitzva of Moshiach.

    [[[“””Until this is an absolute reality, exile will still be a primary theme of Jewish history.”””]]] This blog follows the tumah of assimilation. Rabbi Pinchas Winston, the author of this narishkeit does not learn Torah לשמה.

    [[[“””The million-dollar question has always been, “When will Moshiach come?”””]]] Bunk. What an idiotic question of utter and complete narishkeit. The mitzva of Moshiach, like all other Torah commandments applies to the whole nation of Israel. The prophet Shmuel anointed Shaul as Moshiach before David. Kingship applies to the whole house of Israel, not just to the house of David. The vision of Moshiach – the obligation to rule the oath sworn land with justice. The Last Will and Testament of Moshe the prophet: he established three of the six small Sanhedrin Courts of lateral common law! Moshiach builds the Beit Hamikdash. To learn Torah Primary sources requires the wisdom of learning by making the required דיוקים. Torah teaches through משל\נמשל.

    The Beit Hamikdash, not some building constructed of wood and stone. Israel worshiped idols made of wood and stone! No. The Beit Hamikdash exists as the establishment of latteral common law courtrooms. The term ברית, as first found in בראשית, the oath to rule the oath sworn land with justice. Who and What rules the oath sworn lands with justice? The Federal Great and small Sanhedrin Federal Courts. Another definition for the word brit, other than oath alliance –Republic. The 12 Tribes cut an oath alliance among themselves in the lifetime of Moshe the Prophet, to forge a Republic of Tribes. The Gemarah of קידושין, Rabbi Meir teaches the conditions placed upon the Tribes of Reuven, Gad, and half of Manasseh. The Moshiach establishes the Torah as the Written Constitution of the Republic of States. The Moshiach establishes the Six small Sanhedrin lateral common law courtrooms in the Cities of Refuge. But Klall Israel bears the brit obligation to rule the oath sworn lands לשמה – the 1st Commandment of the revelation of the Torah at Sinai.

    [[[“””Bringing Moshiach “early”means, for the most part, national repentance to the ways of Torah, after which the rest of the world will fall into line.”””]]] NO. Not accurate in the least. Repentance exists as a Xtian concept based upon the avodah zarah narishkeit of ‘Original Sin’. T’shuvah shares no common ground with the tumah concept of repentance. חכמים say kre’a shma, in the evening they accept the Torah curses; in the morning they accept the Torah blessings. The tefillah adjacent to the kre’a shma, in the evening,,, a person remembers his tumah social interactions with his people and dedicates t’shuvah not to return like a dog and eat his own vomit. In the morning,,, a person remembers his tohor social interactions with his people and dedicates t’shuvah to continue to walk down this holy path of halachah.

    [[[“””“This world is but a corridor to the next world”(Pirkei Avot 4:16).”””]]] Reading words from Primary sources does not equal learning those same words from Primary sources. To learn requires making the necessary דיוקים\logical inferences. Rabbi Jacob ben Korshai, the grandson of Elisha ben Abuya. He was the confidante of Rabban Shimon ben Gamliel II, the student of Rabbi Meir, and the teacher of Rabbi Judah HaNasi. Rabbi Jacob was active from 135-170 CE. The use of Greek loan-words for “vestibule” and “banqueting hall” indicate not just a familiarity with Roman culture, but an absolute rejection of avodah zarah practiced by both Greek and Roman dead civilizations, who never accepted the revelation of the Torah at Sinai.

    Why did the Rabbi employ Greek and Roman terms of reference? דיוק the pagan notions of the world to come and “72 virgins”\”banqueting hall”, this avodah zarah has no portion with Torah faith. O’lam Ha’Bah learns from the brit cut between the pieces. Avram swore an oath alliance with HaShem on the faith that in the future, childless Avram’s current plight, that his future born seed would compare to the stars in the heavens for its multitude. The mitzva of קידושין, a man acquires the nefesh O’lam Ha’Bah soul of his wife — specifically – the children that come from this union to all eternity, based upon the precedent of the brit cut between the pieces. Hence, the Torah likewise obligates a man to give his wife a ‘Get’ upon divorce. The ‘Get’ returns the O’lam Ha’Bah unborn children back to the wife. Thus permitting her to do קידושין again with another husband. All the mighty empires of old, ground to dirt and dust. Israel alone though it has experienced g’lut yet thrives and lives.

    [[[“””The first thing to know is that history will last only 6,000 years (Talmud – Sanhedrin 97a). This is because the six millennia are based upon the six days of creation, as hinted to in the following verse:

    For one thousand years in Your [God’s] eyes are but a day that has passed. (Psalms 90:4)”””]]]. Cherry picking from the Talmud, just as disgusting as cherry picking p’sukim from the T’NaCH. This Gemarah comments on the closing chapter of Sanhedrin

    כל ישראל יש להם חלק לעולם הבא שנאמר (ישעיה ה) ועמך כולם צדיקים לעולם, יירשו ארץ נצר מטעי מעשה ידי להתפאר. ואלו שאין להם חלק לעולם הבא: האומר אין תחית המתים מן התורה, ואין תורה מן השמים ואפיקורוס וכו

    The assimilated Tzeddukim of the house of Aaron, they did not know how to learn לשמה. They denied the Torah taught תחית המתים at the brit cut between the pieces. They did not understand the k’vanna of the mitzva of קידושין whereby a man “acquires” his wife. A woman, neither a slave or a prostitute! What does the man “acquire” in the mitzva of קידושין? The nefesh O’lam Ha’Bah soul of his wife! Just as Avram at the brit between the pieces had no children, so too the man when he does קידושין for the first time, has no children.

    R. Kattina taught this aggaditah of six millennia. Aggaditah makes a דרוש unto T’NaCH mussar. Quoting straight from aggaditic sources without making the necessary דרוש perverts the mussar which the aggaditah instructs. ישעיה ב:ה-יא, this sugia contains the p’suk which R. Kattina learned. A similar sugia ישעיה יח:ד-ז. The mussar of the prophet refers to the darkness of cursed g’lut.

    Tehillem צ:ד the ילקוט שמעוני offers no Midrashic comment. The Aramaic Targum interprets the p’suk as a day already past unto history. Therefore its simply not permitted to take a literal understanding of this poetry, which speaks in metaphors. Jumping to Zohar mysticism – religious rhetoric. Personally am not a scholar of this medieval kabbalah, made famous only after the public burning and destruction of all the hand written Talmudic manuscripts in France in 1242. About 60 years thereafter the French king would expel all Jews from France. Which permanently destroyed the Rashi\Tosafot schools of Talmudic scholarship. Jews suffered in the throes of the ירידת הדורות curse which followed the publication of the tumah Rambam code of law.

    Chasing after later commentaries accomplishes little to nothing. Torah faith stands upon the sealed Masoret of T’NaCH, Talmud, Midrashim, and Siddur. These other latter day opinions carry little or no weight. Nothing personal against these rabbinic authorities but the concept of Moshiach stands upon the יסוד of the sealed Masoret alone. Compiling a bunch of private opinions amounts to an explanation of Tehillim צ:ד.
