Rabbi Shimon saw Rabbi Echa with gloomy face and understood that he is occupied with a difficult question. Rabbi Echa asks, if the verse (#75) states ‘She will not rise again’ then how come the queen, the Shechina, was sent away to exile by the King with her children and never to come back to him.
Before Rabbi Shimon explains, he warns about a generation when the people wonder to the right and left without leaders. Only those who walk the ways of the Torah can see the truth.
He explains that in all the exiles that the Israelites go through, they returned to God and the Shechina with them. in the last exile it will be different. When it says ‘She will not rise again’ it means that she will not rise by herself. The King will raise her to her place.
The lower level of the last generation doesn’t have the power to support the Shechina and elevate her in order to bring the Light back to the world.
The prophet Amos lament about the situation of the last generation and shake us when saying ‘She will not rise again’. Good for us that we follow the teaching and promise of Rabbi Shimon to see the truth when we follow the Torah.
Nowadays, we see the increase of chaos in the world. There are no leaders that see or guide us to the truth. Corruption found in all ‘leaders’ that affect all aspect of our lives, food manufacturers, medicines and health system, local and state governments. The worst is corrupted rabbis and spiritual leaders that suppose to lead us to the truth but they lie just to have stronger control on the innocent believers.
The negativity spread in the world is so strong and in the deepest level of evil and impurity. This state of evil and chaos is in my opinion at the level that only God and Mashiach can help us resolve. The extreme of right and left with people go to either direction and most not sure if they are on the correct path.
Rabbi Shimon author the Zohar for us to study and support the Shechina during the generations before the Final Redemption. The Shechina is our life saver and when we connect to her with the Zohar, we have the promised protection of the Zohar and be ready when the King comes to raise the Shechina with us into a world of peace and Light.
