In the previous DZ I asked the question “Why Rabbi Elazar didn’t or couldn’t vaporize the gentile’s bones?”
We should first know that Rabbi Elazar didn’t have intention to vaporize the wicked gentile. He was looking at the person to see if there is any light in this person. Because his eyes were on a high level they cancelled the existence of the wicked person.
Rabbi Shimon and Rabbi Elazar had a very high spiritual state after they got out of the cave after 12 years of study. Their physical body was in very poor state but their conscious and spiritual level was very high. When they saw people dealing with the simple work of life they caused fires until a voice from heavens ordered them to go back to the cave for another year to balance their energy.
Bones are at the level of Chokmah represent the essence of life given to us by the Creator. They are formed from the white of the sperm that is created as a result of a consciousness that connects Chokmah (Father) and Binah (Mother).

Rabbi Elazar turned his head from the bones and cried, reciting a verse from
Psalms 8:2 “יְהוָה אֲדֹנֵינוּ– מָה-אַדִּיר שִׁמְךָ, בְּכָל-הָאָרֶץ ”
“YHVH, our Lord, how glorious is your name in all the earth”
and continued, “How powerful is the Holy name ruling the entire earth. How much love is in the Torah and there is nothing in the Torah that didn’t come from the mouth of the holy One Bless be He”.
Rabbi Elazar said that one day he asked Elijah about the issues brought by the wicked man and he said that they were discussed before the Holy One and here are the answers.
When the Israelites left Egypt, God’s plan was to bring them to the Holy Land, build for them a Holy Temple and make them Holy people.
The testimony is in the verse from the Song of the Sea (portion of Beshalach)
“ תְּבִאֵמוֹ, וְתִטָּעֵמוֹ בְּהַר נַחֲלָתְךָ– מָכוֹן לְשִׁבְתְּךָ פָּעַלְתָּ, יְהוָה מִקְּדָשׁ, אֲדֹנָי כּוֹנְנוּ יָדֶיךָ”
“You will bring them in and plant them on your own mountain–the place, YHVH, reserved for your own dwelling, the sanctuary, YHVH, that your hands have established.”
Because of the sin of the Golden Calf they brought mortality on themselves and had to die in the wilderness, only their children could enter the Holy Land. The Holy Temple was build by man (King Solomon) and not by God. Because of that, the Holy Temple could not stay forever.
“אִם-יְהוָה, לֹא-יִבְנֶה בַיִת– שָׁוְא עָמְלוּ בוֹנָיו בּוֹ”
“Unless YHVH builds the house, its builders labor in vain”
But in the future God will build the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and bring together all Israelites. This is the third Holy Temple that we are all waiting for.
Psalms 147:2 “ בּוֹנֵה יְרוּשָׁלִַם יְהוָה; נִדְחֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל יְכַנֵּס”
“YHVH builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the exiles of Israel.”
There are groups of people that try to collect money for the building of the Third Temple. As we study here, it will not happen on the physical level. All they need is to study the Zohar to get to the truth.
The Third also represents Central Column and connection to Zeir Anpin, which is above the physical world.
