Daily Zohar # 1251 – Pinchas – Are you waiting for him?
“יָדַעְתִּי, כִּי כָּל-אֲשֶׁר יַעֲשֶׂה הָאֱלֹהִים הוּא יִהְיֶה לְעוֹלָם–עָלָיו אֵין לְהוֹסִיף, וּמִמֶּנּוּ אֵין לִגְרֹעַ; וְהָאֱלֹהִים עָשָׂה, שֶׁיִּרְאוּ מִלְּפָנָיו”
“I perceived that whatever God does will make (יַעֲשֶׂה) will be forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it. God has done it, so that people fear before him.”
The Zohar discuss the deep secrets of this verse and says that the reference to ‘will make’ is about the Tikkun of the world that lasts forever. The other side and all negativity will be removed from the world because they have a temporary state and can’t live forever.
“ מַה-שֶּׁהָיָה כְּבָר הוּא, וַאֲשֶׁר לִהְיוֹת כְּבָר הָיָה; וְהָאֱלֹהִים, יְבַקֵּשׁ אֶת-נִרְדָּף”
“That which is, already has been; that which is to be, already has been; and God seeks what has been driven away.”
The Zohar ask why in verse 14 it says ‘God will make’ in future form and in the next verse it says that everything was already created. The explanation comes from the verse in Isaiah 64:3
“וּמֵעוֹלָם לֹא-שָׁמְעוּ, לֹא הֶאֱזִינוּ; עַיִן לֹא-רָאָתָה, אֱלֹהִים זוּלָתְךָ–יַעֲשֶׂה, לִמְחַכֵּה-לוֹ”
“For from days of old they have not heard or perceived by ear, Nor has the eye seen God besides You, Who acts (יַעֲשֶׂה) for the one who waits for Him.”
For those who wait for him, God will deliver light from the level of Binah that is called ‘the world to come’. From Binah comes out a strong and nourished Tree that is Zeir Anpin. Binah nourishes it continuously forever.
We learned that the future is the world to come, which is a continuous connection to the level of Binah. We are like trees at the lower level and to merit the nourishment of Binah we need to ‘wait’ for it. It is not a static wait but a process of preparing and expanding our vessels. The Zohar is the tool that connects us to Binah and the world to come. That is why Moses, the Faithfull Shepherd, promised that by the merit of the Zohar the Israelites will go out of exile with mercy.
Many people wait for Mashiach to come and solve all their problems. The true ‘wait’ is much harder as we explained above but the rewards are ‘sky high’.
