Daily Zohar # 2937 – Bo – Protect your gate
“וְעָבַר יְהוָה לִנְגֹּף אֶת מִצְרַיִם וְרָאָה אֶת הַדָּם עַל הַמַּשְׁקוֹף וְעַל שְׁתֵּי הַמְּזוּזֹת וּפָסַח יְהוָה עַל הַפֶּתַח וְלֹא יִתֵּן הַמַּשְׁחִית לָבֹא אֶל בָּתֵּיכֶם לִנְגֹּף”
“For YHVH will pass through to strike the Egyptians, and when he sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts (Mezuzot מזוזות), YHVH will pass over the door and will not allow the destroyer to enter your houses to strike you.”
God’s protection of our homes continued on since the days we left Egypt. The markings on the doorposts replaced with the precept about installing a mezuzah on our doorposts. The Mezuzah has the name of God, שדי that is related to the level of Yessod that connects the Light to the vessel. Our home is the aspect of vessel and the Mezuzah with the name brings the Light to protect us from the outside negative forces.
The word for ‘doorposts’, ‘מזוזות’ has the letters ‘זז מוות’, which means ‘death moves out’. The Mezuzah has the power to protect and remove negativity from coming into our homes.
The Israelites marked their doors on three sides in the shape of the letter ה that is Malchut. The Israelites inside their home enjoyed the aspect of Mercy but on the outside the red of the blood represented the judgments that God inflicted on Egypt.
More studies about the power of the Mezuzah to protect our homes.
The name on the Mezuzah שדי has the initials for “שומר דלתות ישראל” “Keeper of the doors of Israel”.
Rabbi Aba in the Zohar says in the Zohar that when a person place a mezuzha on his door, angels come and announce;
“זֶה הַשַּׁעַר לַיהוָה צַדִּיקִים יָבֹאוּ בוֹ”
“This is the gate of YHVH; The righteous will enter through it.”
For protection wherever you go, print and save in your purse.
This verse conceals a name of a powerful angel. It is safe to carry because it’s a complete verse from Psalms 91:11.
