Likutey Halakhos, Yoreh Deah 1, Ribis 5, Para. 18-20a. When Moshiach is Revealed All Will See the Truth. Speaker: Rabbi Nasan Maimon.
Hilkhos Ribis 5 is based on Likutey Moharan 51.
00:00 – PARAGRAPH 18. When Moshiach is revealed, all will see the complete truth. כִּֽי־כוּלָּם֩ יֵֽדְע֨וּ אוֹתִ֜י לְמִקְּטַנָּ֚ם וְעַד־גְּדוֹלָם֙ – “…for they shall all know Me from their smallest to their greatest” (Yirmiyahu 31:33). Until then, this perception of truth is only possible through overcoming challenges.
09:20 – Q&R about the perception of truth being possible only through overcoming challenges. Reference to 2Likutey Moharan 8.
11:20 – PARAGRAPH 19. Even the highest level of מלאך – angel – cannot perceive complete truth. Tzaddikim, however, can achieve this perception. Some angels opposed the creation of man.
17:05 – Hashem cast the truth down to the earth.
18:53 – NOTE about young man going away from Torah and taking refuge with his grandparents.
24:09 – NOTE about King Menashe.

31:51 – Q&R about Torah outreach.
33:13 – NOTE about Sipurey Masiyos – The Master of Prayer. Students who attempted to save the “Kingdom of Wealth” failed because they didn’t first consult with the Master of Prayer.
