To complete the study of the subject I extended the commentaries to paragraphs #80 and #81 (text not on this page).

The Zohar gives a parable to explain the process of exiles that the Israelites are going through.
A parable of a king that was upset with his queen and removed her from his palace for a known time. When the time ends, the queen came back to him. It repeated two and three times and the last one the queen was sent far and for a long time. The King said that this time it would be different and he will come with those who are close to him to ask for her.
When the King come and see the Queen lying in the dust, he holds her with his hands, raise her up and bring her to his palace. He swears to her that he will never leave her again and keep her close to him.
The first three exiles, Babylon, Persia and Greece were a short time process. The last exile, Edom, which is the western world with the Ishmaelites (Islam) is the one that we are in and the longest of all. The current state of the world is a good sign that the King won’t let the Queen stay in this dirty dust for long. We pray for him to come and raise us all from this darkness into great Light.
“בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא אָקִים אֶת סֻכַּת דָּוִיד הַנֹּפֶלֶת וְגָדַרְתִּי אֶת פִּרְצֵיהֶן וַהֲרִסֹתָיו אָקִים וּבְנִיתִיהָ כִּימֵי עוֹלָם”
“”In that day I will raise up the fallen house of David, And wall up its breaches; I will also raise up its ruins And rebuild it as in the days of old;”
The ‘house (Sukkah) of David’ is the aspect of Malchut and the Israelites state in the last exile. All we need is to prepare by cleansing ourselves as much as we can to be worthy to be picked up and raised by the King.
The word for ‘fallen’ in Hebrew is in a present continuous form. It means that God knew that that we will be in a state of falling and he needs to come to catch and raise us from falling to unrecoverable state.
I repeat my message from the last study to emphasis that we don’t have much time to correct ourselves. The world is already in a state of war that is beyond the seeing eyes. Those with open eyes (of wisdom) can feel and see it. A freak event may happen somewhere in one or more places in the world. It will lead to a wide spread of conflicts on a global level. It would be the final war between Light and darkness. Our shelter is the Zohar with strong faith to cling to the Light without fear. No matter what kind of darkness you may see around, choose Light!
