Preparation for the Final Redemption
This writing is not about the section of the Zohar above that you should read/scan/listen every day. This article is a special preparation for Pesach and the Final Redemption.
I will start from the end.
After the Final Redemption process is completed, the world will be in complete peace. There will not be even a shadow of negativity. We will be in an immortal state with joy and pleasure that was never experienced before.
Isaiah 64:3 “עַיִן לֹא-רָאָתָה, אֱלֹהִים זוּלָתְךָ–יַעֲשֶׂה, לִמְחַכֵּה-לוֹ”
“eye has not seen a God besides you, who acts for those who wait for him.”
25:8 “בִּלַּע הַמָּוֶת לָנֶצַח, וּמָחָה אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה דִּמְעָה מֵעַל כָּל-פָּנִים; וְחֶרְפַּת עַמּוֹ, יָסִיר מֵעַל כָּל-הָאָרֶץ–כִּי יְהוָה, דִּבֵּר”
“He will swallow up death forever; and YHVH GOD will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for YHVH has spoken.”
All pain and suffering will cease to exist, no more health or sustenance problems. No problems at all.
To get to this point, which many believe that will happen in our times, we better understand the process that leads to it.
In Zohar Shemot #96 we read
“Rabbi Shimon raised his hands, wept and said, ‘Woe to those who will be present at that time, and blessed are those who will be present at that time’. Woe to those who will be present at that time because when the Holy One, blessed be He, comes to redeem the Gazelle (aspect of the Shechina), he will see who is standing by her, and all those who are present with Her. He will see the actions of each and every one that have the merits. But as it said (Isaiah 63:5) “And I looked, and there was none to help”, and many troubles upon troubles will be on Israel.”
The Zohar continues to describe how the nations of the world will be allied against Israel that will grow worse and worse. Then a pillar of fire will be visible for the entire world for forty days. Then the king Mashiach will be awakened to leave the Garden of Eden and be revealed in the Galilee, Israel. The world will get shaken and the people will try to hide in ‘caves’ and bunkers but with a doubt if they can save themselves.
Isaiah 2:19 “ וּבָאוּ בִּמְעָרוֹת צֻרִים, וּבִמְחִלּוֹת עָפָר–מִפְּנֵי פַּחַד יְהוָה, וּמֵהֲדַר גְּאוֹנוֹ, בְּקוּמוֹ, לַעֲרֹץ הָאָרֶץ”
“and they will go into caves of the rocks And into holes of the ground before the fear of YHVH And the splendor of His majesty, When He arises to dominate the earth.”
When Mashiach appears, a period of chaos will begin because leaders of nations and people who are connected to the negative side will fight to extend their lives in this world. They will realize that they have lost their opportunity for immortality. They’ll know that their fight is futile but as God hardened the heart of Pharaoh to keep holding the Israelites, so the negative side will fight until they are extinct.
People who have no faith or complete trust in the light may try to hide from the chaos but with no success. During the transition period of establishing the kingdom of Mashiach, many will perish. That will include many good people that will find themselves among the negative ones. Their deaths will just be a temporary state because they will be resurrected soon after.
