This Zohar is part of a teaching by the ‘Faithful Shepherd’, who is Moses. Previously the Zohar discussed the ‘garments’ of the Torah that can not be understood with simple explanation.
The student raised and said to Moses “You are the ‘craftsman’ who received the Torah on Mount Sinai and from that point on, everyone is his student”. “We read that all the questions are uncleared until Elijah comes”, “who is your main student?”.
Moses answered, saying; “True, Elijah is the student, as it said on him (Numbers 25:11) “the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest…”
Here Moses reveals that Elijah is Pinchas because the verse referred here says “Pinchas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest…”. God told Moses (Exodus 4:16) that Aaron will be his ‘mouth’, meaning he will speak through him.
Pinchas never died and he became Elijah to serve and a prophet, a ‘mouth’ of God. When the Final Redemption comes Moses will usher the Mashiach to the world and will appear as he was in life before God took him, (Exodus 4:10) “slow of speech, and of a slow tongue”. Elijah will be his ‘mouth’ and will correct and reveal the unknown secrets and remove all doubts.
Whether we understand the Torah on low or higher level, we need to make the efforts because when we have questions we’ll get the answers sooner or later. Whatever was revealed to us by the Kabbalists can be found by the study of the Zohar and all the rest will be revealed at the time of the Final Redemption and Resurrection. Those who build the vessels with their study earn merits to be at that time of revelation. That should be the goal of each one of us. Keep up with your Zohar study and ask questions.
