Devar TORAH – Mikeitz (at the end of)
Scripture: Bereshith (Genesis) 41:1-44:17
Mishkan David (Holy of Holies)
Joseph is yet being a teacher to the inth degree. He is being who Echad says he is, in the position of being where Echad says he needs to be, to fulfill the purpose of Echad choosing the nation of Israel.
Even during his teaching by example, he endured the pressure of seeing his brothers and dealing with the feelings/pressures of the things they did/didn’t do to and for him.
When the pressure had completed its work, and caused forgiveness to be complete in him, he identified himself to his brothers, caused them and his father Jacob (Israel) to come and enjoy the blessings that Echad had prepared for them (in the cause).
I have watched as my Teacher, Rebbe Moshe ben Avraham, be disrespected, and treated in every way except the way one who is the Teacher is supposed to be treated. In all of this I have seen the love for Echad and the teachings (his purpose) continue as he loves others as himself.
Be like Joseph!!! Receive your Teacher, walk in the path that the Teacher says to walk. Endure your pressure without complaint. The life of Joseph is given as an example in Torah. The life of your Teacher in front of you will help you to do the same – be your purpose in the earth. At the end of that pressure, and the next pressure, and the next pressure, and the next pressure until AM ISRAEL blesses every nation and heaven appears on earth!!!
