Covenant of Avraham Avinu

Last night, 1-2 Cheshvan, I dreamt something very unique and it was the waking up that made me realize it was a dream.

My neshama was given permission to "travel" and see Olamot (heavens) in Shamayim. While "cruising" excitedly thru the fascinating worlds of HaShem, I was singing Melech HaShem "HaShem is King, the HaShem was King, HaShem will be King forever and ever. HaShem will be King over the earth; on that day HaShem will be One His Name One".

In Shamayim, there is no sense of time. There are no "deadlines" and pressures to finish a certain task within limited time. Therefore, I was "cruising" and immensly enjoying the beautiful visions of HaShem's heavens.

"Voices" are not heard in Shamayim. The communication is via what we call telethapy. I hear a faint voice calling to me (thru telethapy) and I "fly" towards the place where the "voice" came from.

"I see you. I recognize your neshama. What are you doing here? You are זרעו של אברהם אבינו from the seed of Avraham Avinu! I cannot enter inside "there' but will pull you out".

HaShem allowed me to extract his neshama from 'there'. Upon pulling his neshama out of 'there', I said to him, "you see what it means to be from the seed of Avraham Avinu?. Don't forget,
כי ישרים דרכי ה' וצדיקים ילכו בם ופושעים ייכשלו בם
All the ways of Hashem are just. The righteous people who walk in the ways of Hashem will enter Gan Eden, and the 'criminals' will stumble and go to Gehenom for not following the path of HaShem's commandments.

Brit Milah literally is a sign of the covenant between a Jew and God. It is a mizvah (commandment) that is incumbent on all male Jews. Avraham Avinu, zs'l, waits at the entrance of the Heavenly Gates and allows entry to Gan Eden ONLY to circumcised Jews who maintained the holiness of the covenant of the brit.

There are 613 mitzvot in the Torah; one of them is the mitzvah of brit milah (circumcision). On the eighth day, the child fulfills the mitzvah of milah but still has 612 mitzvot to fulfill. The word "brit" whose numerical value is 612, reminds the child of all the remaining mitzvot.

The eighth sefirah, Yesod, represents the Brit which is performed on the eighth day. The Yesod epitomizes Yosef HaTzadik’s, zs'l, resistance of the temptations of Potifer’s wife.

"Blessed are You, our God, King of the universe, who has made us holy with mitzvot, and commanded us to bring him into the covenant of Abraham our father."
