Four fragments of Michael Higger's Jewish Utopia (link). It is written in esoteric language but intention seems to be clear. |
All the treasures and natural resources of the world will eventually come in possession of the righteous. This would be in keeping with the prophecy of Isaiah: " And her gain and her hire shall be holiness to the Lord; it shall not be treasured nor laid up; for her gain shall be for them that dwell before the Lord, to eat their fill and for stately clothing."
That the righteous should be the only ones entitled to all the bliss and happiness in the ideal world, one can easily infer from the glorious future which the rabbis picture for the just and upright in the world to come. " The Holy One, blessed be He ", says R. Eleazor in the name of R. Hanina, " will place a crown upon the head of each of the righteous ".
The Leviathan is thus a universal symbol of the new era in which the righteous will prosper and the wicked suffer. The Leviathan, furthermore, is the emblem of the ideal age, when this world will become the home of the righteous. It is an ideal symbol of a new economic order in the world, when righteousness will be one's only requisite for acceptance unto the realm of happiness and prosperity. Every upright and just individual will be rewarded according to his deeds, and in proportion to his faithfulness. Those righteous who, because of external circumstances, will not be able to contribute their mite to the upbuilding of the Kingdom, will nevertheless share in the privileges and joys of the new civilization.
The wicked, on the other hand, like tall towers, are obstructing the light from coming into the world. The unrighteous are the real enemies of God, and they will disappear before the apearance of the real light, the emblem of the ideal life on earth. In the present era, the upright are humiliated. But in the millennium, the unrighteous will disappear as the grass that withers; while the righteous will walk with strength and pride.
