Daily Zohar # 3024 – Metzora – The Throne of YHVH
“בָּעֵת הַהִיא יִקְרְאוּ לִירוּשָׁלִַם כִּסֵּא יְהוָה וְנִקְוּוּ אֵלֶיהָ כָל הַגּוֹיִם לְשֵׁם יְהוָה לִירוּשָׁלִָם וְלֹא יֵלְכוּ עוֹד אַחֲרֵי שְׁרִרוּת לִבָּם הָרָע.”
“At that time, they will call Jerusalem ‘The Throne of YHVH,’ and all the nations will be gathered to it, to Jerusalem, for the name of YHVH; nor will they walk any more after the stubbornness of their evil heart.”
When YHVH return to Zion, the Light would be revealed in Jerusalem, and the people will call it “the Throne of YHVH.” The Holy Temple would then be built and the evil inclination removed from the world. The world will see the Light revealed in Jerusalem and will come to be closer to the Holy Temple and YHVH.
A continuous flow of Light would come to the world through the Holy Temple, and it will create a state that is described in Isaiah 30:26
“וְהָיָה אוֹר הַלְּבָנָה כְּאוֹר הַחַמָּה וְאוֹר הַחַמָּה יִהְיֶה שִׁבְעָתַיִם כְּאוֹר שִׁבְעַת הַיָּמִים בְּיוֹם חֲבֹשׁ יְהוָה אֶת שֶׁבֶר עַמּוֹ וּמַחַץ מַכָּתוֹ יִרְפָּא”
“Moreover, the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day when YHVH binds up the brokenness of his people and heals the wounds inflicted by his blow.”
The moon is an aspect of Malchut, and it shines with light like the light of the sun, which is an aspect of Zeir Anpin with the Light of Binah. The ‘sevenfold’ is the aspect of the lower Seven Sefirot that will be filled with the light of the upper three Sefirot and revealed in Malchut (moon).
Rabbi Elazar and Rabbi Yosei were walking on the way to the city of Lod. Rabbi Yosei asked Rabbi Elazar if he heard from his father, Rabbi Shimon, about the verse; Genesis 32:2
“וְיַעֲקֹב הָלַךְ לְדַרְכּוֹ וַיִּפְגְּעוּ בוֹ מַלְאֲכֵי אֱלֹהִים.”
“Jacob went on his way, and the angels of God met him.”
Rabbi Elazar answered that he doesn’t know. They continued on the way, and before they arrive at the city they enter a cave and hear a voice saying “two young deer of the doe gave me pleasure, they were the ‘Holy Camp’ that Jacob met.”
The voice gave Rabbi Elazar the answer that he missed, revealing that the two angels were the souls of Abraham and Isaac. They are Right and Left and came to meet and support Jacob, the Center line.
Rabbi Elazar was shaken by this revelation and said; “this is how the master of the world reveals his ways, I heard, and I didn’t know.”
