Divine Revelation: Above Comprehension

Just as by the Splitting of the Sea it states "and Moshe raised his hand, etc.", so too in the future redmeption it states "and He will raise his hand on the river"--river meaning Bina, understanding. Because in order to come to the revelation of the Ohr Ein Sof (endless and infinite divine light) which is above comprehension, there needs to be an elevation [to a level] above intellectual comprehension. This refers to the nullification of intellectual comprehension, and through this there will be a revelation of the Ohr Ein Sof which is His Essence and Identity.

וכמו שבקרי"ס כתיב ויט משה את ידו כו', כמ"כ לע"ל כתיב והניף ידו על הנהר, נהר הוא בינה השגה, שבכדי לבוא לגילוי א"ס שלמעלה מהשגה צ"ל הנפה על השגה היינו ביטול השגה ועי"ז יהי' גילוי א"ס עצמותו ומהותו.

Toras Shmuel, 5632, Hanachos p. 625
