    Mount Ephraim - International Prayer Congregation

    O Dear Lost Sheep from the House of Israel let we try to make a Holy Agreement? No matter what your religion (or none religion) is, with Love and respect for each other. But let the 'base' be the Divine Commands given to Moshe Rabbeinu nothing lessor or nothing more......

    The https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/  is a Home for all the Lost Sheep from Israel who turn back to Adonai their Elohim with all their heart and with all their being. But also you can represent yourself, your group or nation in unique a way. You can open a Profile and put blog-posts. Create a group with blog-posts and forums. People can subscribe to notifications updates from groups. The https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/ is dependent on donations. To hold it free for maintenance and further development for everyone from the Lost Tribes of Israel….. 

    The goal is that we Jews and Ephraim may come to the ultimate ‘agreement’, a Holy, set apart by Adonai’s commandments agreement. As is foretold by the prophet YeshaYahu:

    When it shall happen: the disclosure of His Messiah - His Name,

    Isa 11:9-16  They do no evil nor destroy in all My set-apart mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of Yah, as the waters cover the sea.

    10  And it shall come to pass on that day, that the root of Jesse, that stands for an ensign of the peoples, unto him shall the nations seek; and his resting-place shall be glorious.

    11  And it shall come to pass in that day, that Yah will set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people, that shall remain from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

    12  And He will set up an ensign for the nations, and will assemble the dispersed of Israel, and gather together the scattered of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

    13 And the envy of Ephrayim shall turn aside, and the adversaries of Yehuḏah be cut off. Ephrayim shall not envy Yehuḏah, and Yehuḏah not trouble Ephrayim.

    (Rashi: Ephraim shall not envy Judah: The Messiah, the son of David, and the Messiah, the son of Joseph, shall not envy each other. See: Yeshayahu - Chapter 11:13)

    Please read good? Our terms before you register? https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/terms

    14  And they shall fly down upon the shoulder of the Philistines (The head of Amalek today PA, PLO, Hamas etc.) on the west; together shall they spoil the children of the east; they shall put forth their hand upon Edom (Western world today, Edom and Yishmael in unity) and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.

    15  And Yah will utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea (Today: Edom and Yishmael in unity with Amalek their leader); and with His scorching wind will He shake His hand over the River, and will smite it into seven streams, and cause men to march over dry-shod.

    16  And there shall be a highway for the remnant of His people (the dispersed from Israel and Yehudah), that shall remain from Assyria, like as there was for Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

    My part of the Holy Agreement is that I mention daily your profile names in my personal Prayers and when I am on the Har HaBait near where once was and soon shall be again the Kodesh Kodeshim. From where HaShem shall speak again from between the Cherubim above the Atonement lid of the Ark of the Covenant all the words that the Benay Yisrael need to know: The revelation of Messiah Ben David......

    It is unfair and shameful how Facebook treated me. I strongly believe it is not safe for every Lost Triber to be on Facebook. It has nothing to do that I am losing my hope. But I start to realize we, the Benay Israel, must build in unification their own companies by raising their own affairs. And no more to be dependent on (other) powers like Facebook etc. Because in the end they ‘work’ you out. Please stop believing in them.


    The messenger here on https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/ is not so good to work with for my live videos from the Har HaBait. It is very good to chat with each other in personal contacts.
    So please as soon you become a member of the https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/ download the application ICQ New. Where I created the group ‘Har HaBait’.

    Download, install and search for 'Ariel van Kessel' ask to become a member of the group 'Har HaBait'. When you are a member of https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/ I add you to the be a member of the 'Har HaBait' group. My profile name: Ariel van Kessel.

    Jer_31:6  “For there shall be a day when the watchmen cry on Mount Ephrayim (united states of Israel), ‘Arise, and let us go up to Tsiyon, to Adonai our Elohim.’ ”

    Praying and hoping together according,

    Zec 4:1-5 And the messenger who was speaking to me came back and woke me up as a man was awakened from sleep (Your dispersion to the end of the earth).

    2 And he said to me, “What do you see?” So I said, “I have looked, and seen: a lamp stands all of gold with a bowl on top of it, and on the stand seven lamps with seven spouts to the seven lamps.

    3 “And two olive trees (Yehudah and Ephraim) are by it, one at the right of the bowl and the other at its left.”

    4 Then I responded and spoke to the messenger who was speaking to me, saying, “What are these, my master?”

    5 And the messenger who was speaking to me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my master.”

    11 Then I responded and said to him, “What are these two olive trees, one at the right of the lampstand and the other at its left?”

    12 And I responded a second time and said to him, “What are these two olive branches which empty golden oil from themselves by means of the two gold pipes?”

    13 And he answered me and said, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my master.”

    14 And he said, “These are the two anointed ones (Yehuadah and Ephraim), who stand beside the Master of all the earth.

    Yehudah and Ephraim standing near the Kodesh Kodeshim........ Two separate nations: Yehudah (Their National soul Messiah Ben David) and Ephraim (Their National Soul Messiah Ben Yoseph) coming to unity by 'oil from themselves' (independent from each other): The 'sparks' of Messiah there (in unity) 'National Soul'....... Messiah Ben David, HaShem speaking from between the Cherubim above the Atonement Lid of the Ark of the Covenant.

    Please don’t accept another messiah but accept only Messiah Ben Yoseph/David.

    By coming into the Holy Agreement:
    And the envy of Ephrayim shall turn aside, and the adversaries of Yehuḏah be cut off. Ephrayim shall not envy Yehuḏah, and Yehuḏah not trouble Ephrayim.

    (Rashi: Ephraim shall not envy Judah: The Messiah, the son of David, and the Messiah, the son of Joseph, shall not envy each other. See: Yeshayahu - Chapter 11:13)’

    The Jews (Yehudah) shall bring forth Messiah Ben David…..We, Yehudah and Ephraim, hearing again HaShem's Voice from between the Cherubim….. By the anointing of the King of the Jews: Messiah Ben David, the ‘ultimate’ expression of the national soul of Yehudah and Ephraim..
    The unification of Yehudah and Ephraim - The unification of Messiah Ben David/Yoseph.
    Messiah Ben David/Yoseph is the One who: Isa 63:9  In all their distress He was distressed, and the Messenger of His Presence saved them. In His love and in His compassion He redeemed them, and He lifted them up and carried them all the days of old. What is he base of the HaBerith HaChadasha:

    Jer 31:1-37  “At that time,” declares Adonai, “I shall be the Elohim of all the clans of Yisra’ěl, and they shall be My people.” 

    2  Thus said Adonai, “A people who escaped from the sword found favour in the wilderness, Yisra’ěl, when it went to find rest.” 

    3  Adonai appeared to me from afar, saying, “I have loved you with an everlasting love, therefore I shall draw you with loving-commitment. 

    4  “I am going to build you again. And you shall be rebuilt, O maiden of Yisra’ěl! Again you shall take up your tambourines, and go forth in the dances of those who rejoice. 

    5  “Again you shall plant vines on the mountains of Shomeron. The planters shall plant and treat them as common. 

    6  “For there shall be a day when the watchmen cry on Mount Ephrayim (The United States of Israel), ‘Arise, and let us go up to Tsiyon, to Adonai our Elohim.’ ” 

    7  For thus said Adonai, “Sing with gladness for Ya‛aqoḇ, and shout among the chief of the nations. Cry out, give praise, and say, ‘O Adonai, save Your people, the remnant of Yisra’ěl!’ 

    8  “See, I am bringing them from the land of the north, and shall gather them from the ends of the earth, among them the blind and the lame, those with child and those in labour, together – a great assembly returning here. 

    9  “With weeping they shall come, and with their prayers I bring them. I shall make them walk by rivers of waters, in a straight way in which they do not stumble. For I shall be a Father to Yisra’ěl, and Ephrayim – he is My first-born. 

    10  “Hear the word of Adonai, O nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, ‘He who scattered Yisra’ěl gathers him, and shall guard him as a shepherd his flock.’ 

    11  “For Adonai shall ransom Ya‛aqoḇ, and redeem him from the hand of one stronger than he. 

    12  “And they shall come in and shall sing on the height of Tsiyon, and stream to the goodness of Adonai, for grain and for new wine and for oil, and for the young of the flock and the herd. And their being shall be like a well-watered garden, and never languish again. 

    13  “Then shall a maiden rejoice in a dance, and young men and old, together. And I shall turn their mourning to joy, and shall comfort them, and shall make them rejoice from their sorrow, 

    14  and shall fill the being of the priests with fatness. And My people shall be satisfied with My goodness,” declares Adonai. 

    15  Thus said Adonai, “A voice was heard in Ramah, wailing, bitter weeping, Raḥěl weeping for her children, refusing to be comforted for her children, because they are no more.” 

    16  Thus said Adonai, “Hold back your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears, for there is a reward for your work,” declares Adonai, “and they shall return from the land of the enemy. 

    17  “And there is expectancy for your latter end,” declares Adonai, “and your children shall return to their own country. 

    18  “I have clearly heard Ephrayim lamenting, ‘You have chastised me, and I was chastised, like an untrained calf. Turn me back, and I shall turn back, for You are Adonai my Elohim. 

    19  For after my turning back, I repented. And after I was instructed, I struck myself on the thigh. I was ashamed, even humiliated, for I bore the reproach of my youth.’ 

    20  “Is Ephrayim a precious son to Me, a child of delights? For though I spoke against him, I still remembered him. That is why My affections were deeply moved for him. I have great compassion for him,” declares Adonai. 

    21  “Set up signposts, make landmarks; set your heart toward the highway, the way in which you went. Turn back, O maiden of Yisra’ěl, turn back to these cities of yours! 

    22  “Till when would you turn here and there, O backsliding daughter? For Adonai has created what is new on earth: a woman encompasses a man!” 

    23  Thus said Adonai of hosts, the Elohim of Yisra’ěl, “Let them once again say this word in the land of Yehuḏah and in its cities, when I turn back their captivity, ‘Adonai bless you, O home of righteousness, mountain of set-apartness!’ 

    24  “And in Yehuḏah and all its cities farmers and those who journey with flocks, shall dwell together. 

    25  “For I shall fill the weary being, and I shall replenish every grieved being.” 

    26  At this I awoke and looked around, and my sleep was sweet to me. 

    27  “See, the days are coming,” declares Adonai, “that I shall sow the house of Yisra’ěl and the house of Yehuḏah with the seed of man and the seed of beast. 

    28  “And it shall be, that as I have watched over them to pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict, so I shall watch over them to build and to plant,” declares Adonai. 

    29  “In those days they shall no longer say, ‘The fathers ate sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are blunted.’ 

    30  “But each one shall die for his own crookedness – whoever eats sour grapes, his teeth shall be blunted. 

    31  “See, the days are coming,” declares Adonai, “when I shall make a renewed covenant with the house of Yisra’ěl (Ephraim, the Lost Sheep from the House of Israel) and with the house of Yehuḏah (The Jews). 

    32  Not like the covenant I made with their fathers in the day when I strengthened their hand to bring them out of the land of Mitsrayim, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them,” declares Adonai.

    33  “For this is the covenant I shall make with the house of Yisra’ěl after those days, declares Adonai: I shall put My Torah in their inward parts, and write it on their hearts. And I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people. 

    34  “And no longer shall they teach, each one his neighbour, and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know Adonai,’ for they shall all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,” declares Adonai. “For I shall forgive their crookedness, and remember their sin no more.” 

    35  Thus said Adonai, who gives the sun for a light by day, and the laws of the moon and the stars for a light by night, who stirs up the sea, and its waves roar – Adonai of hosts is His Name: 

    36  “If these laws vanish from before Me,” declares Adonai, “then the seed of Yisra’ěl shall also cease from being a nation before Me forever.” 

    37  Thus said Adonai, “If the heavens above could be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I would also cast off all the seed of Yisra’ěl for all that they have done,” declares Adonai.

    It doesn’t matter your ‘religious’ or ‘non-religious’ ‘background. Be what you are Christian, Muslim, Hindu or whatever but don’t change by taking off or adding to the Divine Laws ‘revealed’ to Moshe Rabbeinu the first five books of the Bible…… Let us do again all His Sabbath and Yom Tovim? But find a way to ‘use’ the laws of ‘your religion’ as a ‘halacha’ around the Divine Laws revealed to Moshe Rabbeinu. As is the ‘function’ of Jewish Halacha. Express Love in respect to every religion. By annihilating all the laws Avoda Zarah, robbery, murder, raping, murder the rape victim, homophily, pedofily etc. brought forth by following our Yetser Hara (evil inclination) and bringing fort her ‘head’ the ‘anointed’ king: Amalek, the ultimate expression of our evil inclination. But instead cultivating the sparks of Messiah our Yetser Tov (good inclination) into our National Soul. And accepting the areas West of the Jordan River as Jewish (Yehuda’s) Inheritance under Jewish (Yehuda’s) Sovereignty with only Jewish Halacha. Including the Har HaBait with a New Temple and her service under Jewish Halacha. Come and help the Jews to build and reinstitute: The Temple Service until Gen 49:10  “The sceptre shall not turn aside from Yehuḏah, nor an Inscriber from between his feet, until Shiloh (Messiah Ben David) comes, and to Him is the obedience of peoples……..

Chapter 51

 

ומעתה יש להבין בענין המסך שבין אצי’ לבריאה והמל’ בוקע המסך כו’ כנ”ל

We must now understand the matter of the screen (Masach) which is between Atzilut and Briyah,[1] and [that] Malchut penetrates the screen etc,[2] as mentioned previously.

להיות ידוע בענין כי עמך מקור חיים באורך נראה אור שהוא הנק’ אור של תולדה כמו אור הנראה מתוך המסך

For it is known regarding the verse,[3] “For with You is the source of life, in Your light is light seen,” which is what is called an offspring light, like a light which is seen through a screen.

שעיקר האור העצמי נשאר למעלה מן המסך ואין ההארה רק מהעלם אור העצמי שנתעלם בתוך עובי המסך שבוקע ומאיר שנק’ הארה דהארה

That is, the primary essential light remains above the screen and there is only a glimmer from the concealed essential light which is hidden within the density of the screen and penetrates and radiates [through], which is called a glimmer of a glimmer.

והוא ענין אתוון אתגליפו כו’ כצורת אות הנחקק בשעוה שנשאר בשעוה רק רושם העלם האות העצמי שבחותם כו’

This is like the matter of[4] “He engraved letters etc,” which is like the form of a letter which is pressed into the wax, which is only an impression of the concealed essential letter of the seal etc.

כך רק בחי’ הארה דהארה דבחי’ המל’ דמל’ דהיינו הבוקע ומאיר ממנה מתוך המסך כו’ ונעשה כתר לבריא’ כו’ וזהו באורך נרא’ אור כו’.

Likewise, it is only the aspect of a glimmer of a glimmer of the aspect of Malchut of Malchut which penetrates and is seen to radiate from within the screen etc., and becomes Keter of Briyah etc., which is the [matter of] “in Your light is light seen etc.”

וע”ז אמרו כברייתו של עולם ברישא חשוכא והדר נהורא כו’ וכמ”ש ישת חשך סתרו כו’ והוא ג”כ בחי’ הצמצו’ דשם אלקים כמ”ש שמש ומגן הוי’ אלקים כנרתק השמש כו’

Regarding this it states about the creation of the world that,[5] “At first there was darkness and then light returned etc,” or as stated,[6] “He made darkness His hiding place etc,” and this is also the matter of the Tzimtzum-constriction of the name Elokim, as it states,[7] “For Hashem Elokim is a sun and a shield,” i.e. it is like a sheath to the sun etc.

 (כידוע בענין ומשה נגש אל הערפל אשר שם האלקים כו’ וכן מ”ש יושב בסתר עליון בצל שדי שאמ’ לעולמו די כו’)

(This is as known regarding the verse,[8] “And Moshe approached the thick darkness where G-d was etc.” and similarly,[9] “You who dwells in the supernal concealment, in the shadow of the Almighty (Sha-dai) etc,” i.e. The One who said to his world “Dai-stop.” etc.[10])

ושרש ענין המסך הזה הוא נעשה מבחי’ לבוש החשמ”ל דחיצונית בינה שמקיף עד מתחת רגלי דזו”נ כו’ כנ”ל

Now the root of the matter of this Masach – screen is that it is made from the aspect of the garment of the Chashmal from the externality of Binah which encompasses until beneath the feat of Zeir Anpin and Nukvah etc.,[11] as previously mentioned.

וכמ”ש במ”א בענין עד הגל הזה כו’ שזהו כדמיון גל אבנים המפסיק כו’

This is in accordance with what is stated elsewhere regarding the verse,[12] “This heap of stones shall be witness etc,” that it is comparable to a heap of stones which separates etc.

להיות שגופו של מסך ופרגוד זה נעשה מצרופי אותיו’ שנק’ אבני’ בס”י והאותיו’ שהמה בלתי מסודרי’ כמו גל אבני’ זע”ז הן כמו בחי’ מסך הארוג מחוטין המבדיל ומפסיק

This is because the essence of the matter of this screen and curtain is that it is made from the combinations of letters which are called “stones” in Sefer Yetzirah,[13] and the letters which are not properly ordered are like a heap of stones one upon the other, and are like the aspect of a screen which is woven of threads and causes a break and separation.

וכדוגמא שאנו רואים באותיות הדבור שכאשר הן מסודרים עפ”י שכל מאיר בהן אור השכל להדיא שיוכל המקבל להבין כמו שמשיגו המשפיע ממש

This is comparable to what we observe with the letters of speech, that when they are properly ordered according to the intellect, the light of the intellect clearly radiates within them, so that the recipient is able to understand [the matter] exactly as the influencer [intends].

משא”כ כשאין מסודרים לא ישיגנו המקבל כלל

In contrast, when they are not properly ordered the recipient will not grasp them altogether.

 (וכמו אור שכל וחכמה הגנוז בהעלם במשל וחידה בענין זר לגמרי רק שמ”מ עומד מתוכו על אותו אור השכל נק’ גם זה בשם בקיעת מסך כאור השמש הנראה בבקיעת אור השחר דרך עובי הרקיע כו’ וכמ”ש במ”א)

(This is also similar to the light of the intellect and wisdom which is concealed and hidden within an analogy or riddle about a completely foreign matter, yet through it he is able to come to that intellectual light.  This too is called a penetration of the screen, similar to the light of the sun as it is seen when its rays break through the thickness of the morning fog, as explained elsewhere.)

ולהיות כי אין ערך בין אצי’ לבריאה ע”כ הוצרך להיות בחי’ צמצום דמסך הזה

Since there is no comparison between Atzilut and Briyah, therefore there needed to be this aspect of the Tzimtzum of the screen.

 (כמו שהוצרך להיות בחי’ צמצום הראשון הנק’ מק”פ וחלל ריקן בין העצמו’ דאא”ס להיות מקור להמשכת הקו כו’ כמ”ש למעלה

(This is similar to how there needed to be the aspect of the first Tzimtzum which is called the empty place and vacant space between the Essence of the Infinite Light, to be the source for the drawing down of the Kav-line etc., as previously explained.

רק שם היה בחי’ העלם והתכללו’ האור בעצמו’ הנק’ מק”פ ולא בחי’ מסך ממש כמו דוגמ’ התעלמו’ הידיע’ באריכות בשעה ששונה בקיצור כו’ כנ”ל לפי שהכל בבחי’ עצמותו עדיין

Only that there [in the Essence], it was an aspect of concealment and inclusion of the light within His Essence, and is called the Makom Panuy – Empty place, rather than an actual screen.  This was compared to the concealment of one’s own expansive knowledge, at a time when one reviews it in summary etc., as discussed previously.  This is because all of this is still within the aspect of His Essence.

משא”כ מאצי’ לבריא’ מבחי’ בב”ג להיות מקור לבע”ג ממש הוצרך להיות מסך בהפסק גמור

This is not the case from Atzilut to Briyah because from an aspect of limitlessness to become the source of actual limitation it is necessary for there to be a screen in a way of complete separation.

אבל יש בו יתרון מעל’ במה שהמסך עצמו נעש’ מבעל הצמצום כמו מי שעשה את המשל לנמשל או מי שעושה הצירופים דאותיות בלתי מסודרי’ וכה”ג שאין הפסק המסך הזה ענין הפסק והבדל אמיתי לעצמו רק לגבי המקבלים בלבד וכהדין קמצא דלבושי’ מיניה ובי’ כו’ וכמ”ש בלק”א)

Nevertheless, there is a great benefit in the fact that the screen itself is made by He who made the Tzimtzum-constriction Himself, like a person who [himself] makes the analogy for the analogue, or like one who [intentionally] mixes the order of the letters and the like, because of which this separation of the screen is not a true break or separation for Himself, but only in relation to the recipients.  This is analogous to a snail whose garment is of himself and part of himself etc,[14] as explained in Tanya.[15])

(והיינו אני ראשון בצמצום הראשון דמק”פ ואני אחרון בצמצום האחרון מאצי’ לבי”ע כו’ משום דסוף מעשה זו דאצי’ עלה בתחלת המחשבה ורצון דמל’ דא”ס כו’ וד”ל)

(This is the meaning of[16] “[I am first, and I am last].”  That is, “I am first” with the first Tzimtzum of the empty place, and “I am last” with the final Tzimtzum between Atzilut and Briyah etc., because this end action of Atzilut arose first in the thought and desire of Malchut of Ein Sof etc.  This will suffice for the understanding.)

והנה ידוע דזהו שרש ענין בשכמל”ו בחי’ יח”ת דמל’ דהיינו בחי’ הארת ע”ס דמל’ דאצי’ בבריאה כו’ בבחי’ הארה דהארה הנ”ל כמ”ש באורך נראה אור כו’

Now, as known, this is the root of the matter of “Blessed be the name of His glorious kingship forever and ever etc,” which is the aspect of the “Lower Unity” (Yichuda Tata’a) of Malchut.[17]  That is, it is the radiance of the ten Sefirot of Malchut of Atzilut within Briyah in the aforementioned aspect of a “glimmer of a glimmer,” as it states, “In your light is light seen etc.”

וז”ש כי הוי’ הוא האלקי’ וכו’ וכידוע בענין המאמר דכגוונא דאינון מתייחדין לעילא שהוא בחי’ יחוד דזו”נ בבחי’ אצי’ אוף הכי איהי המל’ אתייחדת לתתא בכורסייא דבריאה כו’

Regarding this it states,[18] “Havayeh, He is Elokim etc.,” and as known regarding the statement,[19] “Just as they are unified above” referring to the union of Zeir Anpin and Nukvah in the aspect of Atzilut, “so likewise is she unified below” referring to Malchut in the “Throne” (which is called) Briyah etc.

והיינו שאמרו השבטים ששרשם בו”ק דבריא’ ליעקב בעל עולם האצי’ כשם שאין בלבך אלא אחד בבחי’ יחודא עילאה דאצי’ דאיהו וחיוהי וגרמוהי חד9 כו’ כך אין בלבנו בבחי’ מל’ דאצי’ בבריאה אלא אחד יחודא תתאה כו’

This, then, is what the tribes who are rooted in the six directions of Briyah said to Yaakov who is the master of the world of Atzilut,[20] “Just as in your heart there is only One” – in the aspect of the upper unity of Atzilut wherein He and His life force and His organs are one – “So likewise in our hearts there is only One” in the aspect of Malchut of Atzilut as it is in Briyah in the lower unity.

והיינו הוי’ אחד ושמו אחד כידוע ודרך כלל נקרא הוי’ ואדני הוי’ ואלקים סובב כל עלמין וממלא כל עלמין

This is the matter of[21] “Hashem is one, and His name is one” as known.  In general this is called[22] Havayeh and Adonai or Havayeh and Elokim,[23] referring to [how He] encompasses [and transcends] all worlds (Sovev Kol Almin), and how He permeates all worlds (Memale Kol Almin).

והוא הנק’ ג”כ בשמות דמ”ה וב”ן שם מ”ה בז”א ושם ב”ן במלכות הבא בבחי’ מילוי ומילוי דמילוי כו’

These [aspects] are also called by the names Ma”H and Ba”N.  The name of Ma”H refers to[24] Zeir Anpin and the name Ba”N is in Malchut,[25] as they come forth in a way of expansion (Miluy) and expansion of expansion (Miluy D’Miluy) etc.

 (וענין המלוי ידוע ע”ד דוגמא כשהאות יו”ד בא במבטא במלוי ו”ד זהו פי’ וביאור לאות נקודה דיו”ד הכתוב

(The matter of expansions (Miluy) is known by way of example from the letter Yud-י. When it is pronounced (as a word) it has an expansion of Vov and Dalet (יו”ד), which is the explanation and expansion of the point of the written letter Yud-י.

וכאשר יצטרך לפרש גם את המלוי דו”ד יתוסף אותיו’ בוא”ו דלי”ת

And when one needs to explain the expansion of the Vav-ו and Dalet-ד, they too expand into additional letters of Vav-וא”ו and Dalet-דלי”ת.

וכן מילוי דוא”ו דלי”ת עד כמה פעמי’ מלוי דמלוי כו’

And so on with the expansions of the Vav-וא”ו and Dalet-דלי”ת until there are multiple expansions upon expansions (Miluy D’Miluy) etc.

שכ”ז אינו רק הילוך והשתלשלו’ הארת אור השפע הבא דרך פרט דפרט יותר מן ההעלם לגלוי דגלוי עד גלוי פרט דפרט היותר אחרון

All of this is merely the flow and chaining down of the ray of light and influence as it comes in a manner of the specifics of the specifics from concealment into revelation, and revelation upon revelation, until the final most specific detail.

ע”ד שמבואר במ”א בענין וידבר ג’ אלפים משל שהן כמו רבוי צירופי’ הבאים בהשתלשלות זא”ז זה פנימי לזה כמשל לנמשל שמשתלשל ויורד כי משל של הנמשל זה צריך אליו משל כמ”ש בזהר

This is similar to what is explained elsewhere regarding the matter of “He spoke three thousand analogies” which are like the multitude of combinations which come in a way of chaining down, one after the other, each one internal to the next, like an analogy to an analogue which descends and chains down. For, [even] the analogy for this analogue itself requires an analogy, as stated in the Zohar.[26]

וכך הוא ענין המילוי הבאין בגלוי מן ההעלם כפרט היוצא מן הכלל כו’

This is likewise the matter of the expansions (Miluy)[27] which come into revelation from concealment, like a specific detail which comes forth from a general principle etc.

ויש בחי’ מילוי בהיפך שנתעלם בהעלם תוך העלם כו’ וכמ”ש במ”א שזהו ענין לבוש המסך כו’ וד”ל

There is also the aspect of expansion in the opposite sense, where there is concealment upon concealment, as explained elsewhere that this is the matter of the garment of the screen (Masach) etc.  This will suffice for the understanding.
