    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.

    So that may come in fulfillment,
    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 52

 

והנה בבחי’ פרטו’ דע”ס דמל’ דאצי’ בבריאה אחר בקיעת המסך הרי ידוע שבחי’ כתר מל’ דבריאה הנק’ עתיק דבריאה הוא שנמשך מבחי’ מל’ דמל’ דאצי’ כו’ היינו בחי’ הרצון והתענוג לבחי’ מקור לבריאה יש מאין ממש

Now, in regard to the aspect of the specifics of the ten Sefirot of Malchut of Atzilut as they are in Briyah after penetrating the screen (Masach), it is known that the aspect of Keter Malchut of Briyah which is called Atik of Briyah is what is drawn forth from the aspect of Malchut of Malchut of Atzilut etc, and is the aspect of the desire and pleasure for the aspect of the source of actual creation (Briyah) of something from nothing.

כמאמר כד סליק ברעותא למיברי עלמא דכמו שעלה ברצונו להאציל כו’ כך ירד הרצון לברוא יש מאין כו’ והוא הנק’ כתר מל’ דבריאה

This is like the statement,[1] “When it arose in His will to create the world,” for just as it arose in His will to emanate (Atzilut) etc., so likewise His will descended to create something from nothing etc, and this is what is called Keter Malchut of Briyah.

 (כמו שמבואר במ”א בענין ישמעאל בני ברכני א”ל יהי רצון מלפניך כו’ פי’ ר”י כה”ג הי’ בהיכל ק”ק דבריאה ששם יורד אור מל’ דמל’ דאצי’ להיות כתר לבריאה ע”כ אמר לו בני ברכני וא”ל י”ר מלפניך כו’)

(This is as explained elsewhere regarding the matter of,[2] “Yishmael my son, bless Me; and he answered Him, “May it be desirable before You etc.”  That is, Rabbi Yishmael the High Priest was in the Holy of Holies of Briyah-Creation wherein there descends the light of Malchut of Malchut of Atzilut to become the Crown (Keter) of Briyah-Creation.  He therefore said to him, “My son, bless Me” to which he responded, “may it be desirable before You etc.”)

ומבחי’ התענוג והרצון הזה להיות הבריאה כו’ נמשך בחו”ב דרצון ותענוג הזה ונק’ או”א דבריא’

From this pleasure and desire to bring about the creation (Briyah) etc., it was drawn down [further] into Chochmah and Binah of this desire and pleasure, which are called Abba and Imma of Briyah.

ומאו”א שהוא בחי’ חו”ב של זה הרצון והתענוג נמשכו בחי’ המדות שנק’ ז”א דבריאה

From Abba and Imma, which are the aspects of Chochmah and Binah of this desire and pleasure, the emotions which are called Zeir Anpin of Briyah were drawn down.

ומז”א למל’ דבריאה שהוא מקור המהוה עולם הבריאה נשמות ומלאכי’ מאין ליש ממש כו’

From Zeir Anpin [it was drawn down] to Malchut of Briyah which is the source which brings the world of Briyah with its souls and angels into being from nothing into actual something, etc.

ויש בע”ס דבריאה ג”כ בחי’ או”כ ולבושי’ והיכלות

and in the ten Sefirot of Briyah there also is the aspect of lights (Orot) and vessels (Kelim), garments (Levushim) and chambers (Heichalot).

וכידוע בענין ז’ היכלות דבריאה ובהיכל ק”ק שהוא היכל הז’ שם יחוד דזו”נ כו’

This is as known regarding the seven chambers[3] (Heichalot) of Briyah-Creation;[4] that the union of Zeir Anpin and Nukvah occurs in the chamber of the Holy of Holies which is the seventh chamber[5] etc.

ומבחי’ מל’ דבריאה נעשה בחי’ כתר וע”י דעולם היצי’ ג”כ ע”י בקיעת מסך שבין בריאה ליצי’ ע”ד הנ”ל במסך שבין אצי’ לבריאה

Now, from the aspect of Malchut of Briyah the aspect of Keter and Atik Yomin of the world of Yetzirah[6]is made and this too is through the penetration of a screen (Masach) between Briyah and Yetzirah, similar to what was previously discussed regarding the screen between Atzilut and Briyah.

דכמו שעלה ברצונו לברוא כך עלה ברצונו ליצי’ ועשי’ רק שצריך להיו’ הפסק פרסא בין סוף מעשה דרצון דבריא’ לתחל’ הרצון דיצי’ כו’

For, just as it arose in His desire to create, so likewise did it arise in his desire to form (Yetzirah) and to actualize (Asiyah), only that it is necessary for there to be a break and a screen between the end action of the desire for Briyah-Creation and the beginning of the desire for Yetzirah-Formation.

וכמ”ש לכבודי בראתיו יצרתיו אף עשיתיו

This is as it states,[7] “For My glory I have created it (Barativ), I have formed it (Yatzartiv), I even have made it (Asitiv).”

וידוע דבי”ע הנק’ ג’ עולמות הנפרדי’ מאין ליש ממש היינו כדוגמת התהוות אותיות המח’ ודו”מ שבאי’ בבחי’ יש נפרד לעצמו ממש

Now it is known that the [worlds of] BriyahYetzirah, and Asiyah are called the three separate worlds [that] actually [come into being in a manner of] something from nothing.  This is similar to the coming into being of the letters of thought, speech and action, which truly come forth in a way of a tangible somethingness (Yesh) separate from oneself.[8]

כך מבחי’ אותיות המח’ דמדו’ האלקי’ דבריאה הנק’ ז”א דבריאה כנ”ל נבראו מזה בחי’ עלמין סתימין דלא אתגליין שהן נשמות ומלאכי’ דעולם הבריא’ מאין ליש ממש

Likewise, from the aspect of the letters of thought of the G-dly emotions of Briyah which is called Zeir Anpin of Briyah, as mentioned above, there was created the aspect of the “hidden worlds which are not revealed”, which are the souls and angels of the world of Briyah, [which are] actually [brought into being in a manner of] something from nothing.

כמו נשמת אברהם אוהבי מבחי’ פנימי’ הכלי’ דחסד דז”א שבמל’ דבריאה ומיכאל דעולם הבריא’ מבחי’ חיצוניות הכלים ואותיות דחסד דז”א דבריאה כו’

For example, the soul of[9] “Avraham who loves Me” is from the aspect of the inner vessels of Chessed of Zeir Anpin of Malchut of [the world of] Briyah,[10] and [the angel] Michael of the world of Briyah is from the aspect of the externality of the vessels and letters of Chessed of Zeir Anpin of Briyah etc.

וכן ג”ע העליון דבריאה היינו מבחי’ אור הכתר דבריאה שהוא התענוג העליון שנק’ עתיק דבריאה שמתצמצם בבינה שבמל’ דבריא’ שהנשמו’ דבריא’ נהנין מזיו כו’

Similarly, the upper garden of Eden (Gan Eden HaElyon) of [the world of] Briyah is from the aspect of the light of Keter of Briyah which is the supernal pleasure which is called Atik of Briyah as it constricts within Binah of Malchut of Briyah, wherein the souls in Briyah derive pleasure from the ray etc.

 (וכידוע דאימא עילאה מקננא בכורסייא שהוא אור בינה דאצי’ ע”י השתלשלו’ רבות עד בינה דמל’ דאצי’ בבינה שבמל’ דבריאה כו’ ועד”ז ז”א דאצי’ מקנן ביצירה ומל’ בעשיה כו’)

(As known,[11] “The supernal mother settles in the throne,” which refers to the [descent of the] light of Binah of Atzilut through multitudes of chaining-down until Binah of Malchut of Atzilut [settles] within Binah of Malchut of Briyah etc.  In this same manner Zeir Anpin of Atzilut settles in [the world of] Yetzirah,[12] and Malchut in [the world of] Asiyah etc.[13])

וכך הוא ענין השרפים שהם בעולם הבריאה כו’ והן בני האלקים שמתייצבים על הוי’ שהוא בחי’ ז”א דבריאה

This is likewise the case in regard to the matter of the Serafim [angels] which are in the world of Briyah etc.[14]  They are the[15] “Sons of Elokim who stand before Havayeh” which is the aspect of Zeir Anpin of [the world of] Briyah.

ובחי’ כלים דז”א דבריאה הוא בחי’ מט”ט שרו של עולם הבריאה שנא’ בו כי שמי בקרבו שהוא הוי’ דז”א דאצי’ כו’ (ונק’ נער אנפי זוטרי לגבי בחי’ אנפי רברבי בחי’ ז”א דאצי’ כידוע)

The aspect of the vessels of Zeir Anpin of Briyah is the aspect of Meta”tron,[16] the minister of the world of Briyah[17] about whom it states,[18] “For My name is within him” which is the aspect of Zeir Anpin of [the world of] Atzilut etc.  (He is called a lad[19] (Na’ar-נער) or the “small face [or stature]” relative to the “large face [or stature]” of the aspect of Zeir Anpin of Atzilut,[20] as is known.)

ובכלל נק’ עולם הבריא’ עולם המחשבה בחי’ עלמין סתימין כו’ (כמו ביו”ד נברא העוה”ב שהוא יו”ד דמח’ דבינ’ דמל’ דבריא’ כו’ ובה’ נברא העוה”ז בחי’ היצירה והעשיה)

In general, the world of Briyah is called the “World of Thought”, which is the aspect of the concealed worlds etc.  (This is similar to [the statement that,[21]] “The world to come was created with a Yud-י” which refers to the Yud of the thought of Binah of Malchut of Briyah etc., “and with a Heh-ה this world was created” [which refers to] the aspects of Yetzirah and Asiyah.)

ועולם היצי’ עולם הדבור עלמין דאתגליין כו’ (וכמו נבואות ישעי’ בשרפים דבריאה שאומ’ קדוש ויחזקאל בחיות ואופני’ שאומרים ברוך כו’)

The world of Yetzirah, however, is the “World of Speech”, i.e. the revealed worlds etc. (This is like the [difference between] the prophecies of Isaiah regarding the Serafim [angels] of Briyah who say “Holy, [holy, holy etc,]” and the [prophecies] of Ezekiel regarding the Chayot [angels] and Ophanim [angels] who say “Blessed [be the name of His glorious kingship forever and ever] etc.”[22])

וע”ד הנ”ל בע”ס דבריאה כך הוא בע”ס דיצי’ וע”ס דעשי’ דרך פרטי פרטיות באו”כ ולבושי’ והיכלות כו’ והתהוות המלאכים ונשמות דיצי’ הוא כמו סנד”ל כו’ שכל נבואת הנביאים מבחי’ נו”ה דז”א דיצי’ כידוע

Now, just as it was explained above regarding the ten Sefirot of Briyah, it is the same way with the ten Sefirot of Yetzirah and the ten Sefirot of Asiyah to the finest particulars, with lights and vessels, garments and chambers etc. and the coming into being of angels and souls in Yetzirah; for example [the angel] Sanda”lfon etc.[23]  For, all the prophecies of the prophets were from the aspects of Netzach and Hod of Zeir Anpin of Yetzirah,[24] as known.

ועד”ז יש מסך מפסיק בין יצי’ לעשי’ ובחי’ מל’ דמל’ דיצי’ נעשה כתר וע”י לעשי’ שזהו מ”ש כל אשר חפץ ה’ עשה

And in the same manner there is a screen which separates between Yetzirah and Asiyah,[25] and the aspect of Malchut of Malchut of Yetzirah becomes Keter and Atik Yomin for Asiyah, regarding which it states, “Everything that HaShem desired He did (Asah).”

והן נשמות ומלאכים דעשי’ ובחי’ ג”ע התחתון דעשי’ עד האופנים שמקבלים מבחי’ מל’ דמל’ דעשי’ כידוע

This refers to the souls and angels of [the world of] Asiyah, including the aspect of the lower garden of Eden (Gan Eden HaTachton), until the Ophanim angels which receive from the aspect of Malchut of Malchut of Asiyah as is known.

ומבחי’ שמרי האופנים הוא שנמשך שרש השפעת גלגל המזלות שהן שרשי’ של כל דצח”מ שבכל אקלי’ ושרשי הרכבות הד’ יסודו’ דארמ”ע מרוחניו’ לגשמיו’ כו’

And it is from the aspect of the excretions of the Ophanim angels[26] that influence is drawn forth to influence the cycles of the constellations (Mazalot) which are the root of all inanimate, plant life, animals and humans, in all climates,[27] as well as the root for the composition of the foundations of fire, vapor, water and earth from spirituality to physicality etc.

וכמו ארץ מגדלת חכמי’ כו’ כי מזל מחכים כו’ עד ממגד תבואות שמש כו’ עד שיש בחי’ מזל דומם כמו גדא דהר עד מזל דומם שבדומם ע”ד שאמ’ אין לך עשב שאין לו מזל

This is similar to the statement,[28] “A land that cultivates wise [people] etc,” because [it receives from] the Mazal of Machkim [Chochmah-Wisdom] etc,[29] or [the verse,[30]] “The choice fruits of the sun etc,” to the point that there is even a Mazal for inanimate objects as in [the statement][31] “the luck of the mountain,” until there is even a Mazal for the inanimate of the inanimate, as it states,[32] “There is not a blade of grass that does not have its Mazal.

ועל המזלות מושל בחי’ מל’ דמל’ דעשי’ כידוע בענין ומלכותו בכל משלה וכמ”ש וממשלתך כו’ וכמשי”ת בע”ה

And the Mazalot are ruled by the aspect of Malchut of Malchut of Asiyah as is known regarding the verse,[33] “His kingdom rules over all etc,” and as stated,[34] “[Your kingdom is the kingdom of all worlds” and “Your dominion [is throughout all ages”] etc, as will be explained with the help of HaShem.
