THE COMPLEX ANSWER TO THE QUESTION “DID MOSES DIE?”
A respected author and publisher of Judeo-Christian books, Sheila R. Vitale is the pastor, founder and driving force behind Living Epistles Ministries and Christ-Centered Kabbalah. On the latter website, Sheila R. Vitale presents alternate translations of key Biblical passages, and also answers reader questions, such as whether or not Moses really died.
The question pertains to her assertion in The Virgin Birth (Part 2) that Moses' body was never found “because he was a righteous man.” Pastor Vitale posits that there are actually two answers to this question, depending on the spiritual world one inhabits. The answer is, “No, Moses did not die,” if one inhabits the spiritual-mental world called "Emanation," from where God's creative power goes forth, and believes that when Jehovah said to Joshua, "Moses is dead," he meant only 1) that Moses was no longer present in the World of Action where Joshua existed, and 2) that Moses would not return to the World of Action during Joshua's physical lifetime, but might return at a different time, with a different physical form.
Those who believe this now have an answer to the question of how Moses appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration along with Elijah and Jesus of Nazareth. The answer is that Moses ascended to a high spiritual World where his soul is still very much alive and actively engaged. For those who inhabit a spiritual dimension that does not accept this explanation, the answer is simply, “Yes, Moses died.”
