“If you will not bring them out of Egypt, No one else will.”
“No one could serve GD with anything acquired dishonestly.”
“There is gold and a multitude of pearls, but lips of knowledge are a precious vessel.” Mishlei 20:15
Moshe Rabbeinu was the most humble of man.
He was a servant to achieve HASHEM’S plan.
He was commanded to go to Pharoah
And demand that he let the Jewish people go.
He was coaxed to lift up his rod and split the sea
Moshe pleaded that someone else may be the key
Leadership was imposed on him alone
Because his attitude was of the proper tone.
Moshe felt rejected that he didn’t give for the Mishkon
But it was his teaching that needed no Korbon.
The offerings were to unite with HASHEM
provided they were done for the sake of Heaven
“No one could serve GD with anything acquired dishonestly”
Forgiveness required giving korbanos with sincerity.
There were elevation, sin, fire offerings, salt
Even though the sin was a mistake by default.
Making ones own leniencies is an insult to His Higher Laws.
Violations that lead to exile may be negligent flaws.
Whiting out, blacking out, misinformation do not erase
Self glorification, slander identity theft are base.
Corruption and abusive behavior put the perpetrator out of favor
Lies and Stealing are rejected by our Savior
Acts of immorality destroy the world
Silence is not a cover up for injustice and truth not unfurled.
Reaffirming roots and righteousness means redemption
Teshuva removes sorrow and detention
Sacrifice, Study Torah, Confess, Give charity
Return with expressions of clarity.
Understanding the mistake of aveiras is a start for correction
It is a mandate for a new responsible direction
The Tabernacle was meant to benefit Moshe and His generations
From the role models of the past for future aspirations.
Maintaining a higher level of holiness Is the basis of true aliyah
It is not about me and mine but raising and building up
Going out of Egypt means derech eretz with service to HASHEM.
Prayer, charity, humility are a tikkun to make the world like Heaven.
