Daily Zohar # 1324 – Pinchas – The path to redemption – Part 5
Zohar Pinchas, Vol. 20 (English)/Vol 15 (Hebrew)
Continued from previous DZ
The sages told us that on the month of Nisan the Israelites were redeemed from Egypt and the month of Nisan will be the future Redemption.
The Zohar reveals that it will be on the fourteenth of the month and the secret comes from the verse from Exodus 17:16
“וַיֹּאמֶר, כִּי-יָד עַל-כֵּס יָהּ, מִלְחָמָה לַיהוָה, בַּעֲמָלֵק–מִדֹּר, דֹּר”
“And he said: ‘The hand יד (numerically 14) upon the throne of YHVH: YHVH will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.’”
The fourteenth of Nisan is the day that we burn the Chametz and on that evening we celebrate Passover that is all about telling the story of the first Redemption.
The Torah declared Nisan as the first month of the year. Not surprisingly, the Zodiac also marks this month as the beginning of the ‘wheel’. Cosmically, Nisan, Aries, is the beginning and the ‘head’ of everything. The counting of years for the kings of Israel started on Nisan. God rules the world through the control of the Zodiac beginning with Nisan.
Rabbi Nissim Peretz of blessed memory once raised the question to why God started the ‘Ten Commandments’ with “I am YHVH your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery”
Why not something more impressive as “I am YHVH your God, who created all the worlds…”.
The idea is for us to understand the purpose of creation and the process that will lead us to the Final Redemption.
It is not about ‘worshiping’ a powerful God but it’s about preparing ourselves for the time where we go out of the slavery to the material world (code name Egypt) for ever.
The world is getting darker everyday because of all the corrupted world leaders and the greed of those who control the money of the world. Only those who are close to the Zohar will experience the ‘Light’ as it was before the first redemption.
“וּלְכָל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל הָיָה אוֹר, בְּמוֹשְׁבֹתָם”
“but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings”
Stay away from darkness and keep the ‘Light’ on.
