Audio of this Zohar will be available later this week.
When the ISraelites heard the first commandment (utterance of God), they died because of their connection to Malchut. They came back to life because God wanted them to include them in the Tree of Life that is Zeir Anpin, which is above the Tree of Death of Malchut. The reason for that is that they will have immortality. The Israelites didn’t want it and they created a distance between themselves and Moses who brought the Torah of Immortality. Moses is the aspect of Da’at and could have created a bridge from the upper three Sefirot to malchut using Zeir Anpin.
The Israelites chose Malchut and stayed with the aspect of death.
“לֵךְ, אֱמֹר לָהֶם: שׁוּבוּ לָכֶם, לְאָהֳלֵיכֶם”
“Go say to them: Return to your tents.”
We see the work and miracles of God in this world but most of us choose to the temporary pleasures.of the material world.
The first commandment says
“I am YHVH your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. “You shall have no other gods before me.”
When we understand that there’s ONLY ONE God who is YHVH and none but him then we can have a true connection to the Tree of Life and merit Immortality after death and Resurrection.
I saw a video by a kabbalah student that connect the three columns of the Tree of Life as the aspect of the three major religions Judaism (Torah), Christianity and Islam. This is very wrong and far from any kabbalistic teachings. There are no references to his idea in any kabbalah book. Rabbi Shimon curses those who bring incorrect images of the Tree of Life. Following and accepting such image of the three columns goes against the first commandment and the flow of light to the world. There’s no Kabbalah in other religions because they don;t teach the Tree of Life.
If we want to earn the state of Immortality at the time of the Resurrection we need to leave all idol worshipping and other teachings and cling to the ways of the Torah and the Zohar as the tools that reveals its light. It is simple and powerful.
