Daily Zohar # 3236 – Vayechi – In this I will be confident
Daily Zohar 3236
93. רַב נַחְמָן אָמַר מִכָּאן, (תהלים כז) אִם תַּחֲנֶה עָלַי מַחֲנֶה לֹא יִירָא לִבִּי וְגוֹ’ בְּזֹאת אֲנִי בּוֹטֵחַ, זֹאת – זוֹ תּוֹרָה תִּהְיֶה לִכְשֶׁיָּבֹא הַמָּשִׁיחַ, וְלָכֵן (שיר ב) וְקוֹל הַתּוֹר נִשְׁמַע בְּאַרְצֵנוּ. לָמָּה נִמְשְׁלָה הַתּוֹרָה לְגוֹזָל? מַה גּוֹזָל קוֹלוֹ עָרֵב – אַף דִּבְרֵי הַתּוֹרָה קוֹלָם עָרֵב, וְהַקּוֹל הַזֶּה יִהְיֶה כְּשֶׁיָּבֹא הַמָּשִׁיחַ לְיוֹם הַדִּין.
94. לָמַדְנוּ, הַנִּצָּנִים נִרְאוּ בָאָרֶץ עֵת הַזָּמִיר הִגִּיעַ וְקוֹל הַתּוֹר נִשְׁמַע בְּאַרְצֵנוּ. הַנִּצָּנִים – אֵלּוּ הָאָבוֹת שֶׁל הַמֶּרְכָּבָה שֶׁמִּן הָעוֹלָם הֵם יָקוּמוּ וְיִתְרָאוּ. עֵת הַזָּמִיר הִגִּיעַ – הַתִּשְׁבָּחוֹת שֶׁיְּשַׁבְּחוּ הַלְוִיִּם כְּשֶׁיָּשׁוּבוּ לַעֲבוֹדָתָם כְּבַתְּחִלָּה. וְקוֹל הַתּוֹר – אֲשֶׁר נָתַן לִי אֱלֹהִים בָּזֶה, דִּבְרֵי תוֹרָה שֶׁהֵם עֲרֵבִים כְּקוֹל הַתּוֹר הַזֶּה, זֶ”ה וְזֹא”ת תּוֹר שָׁוִים.
Read paragraph #88 from previous DZ
“וַיֹּאמֶר יוֹסֵף אֶל אָבִיו בָּנַי הֵם אֲשֶׁר נָתַן לִי אֱלֹהִים בָּזֶה וַיֹּאמַר קָחֶם נָא אֵלַי וַאֲבָרֲכֵם.”
“Joseph said to his father, “They are my sons, whom God has given me this (בָּזֶה).” And he said, “Bring them to me, please, that I may bless them.”
Rabbi Shimon explains that the word ‘בָּזֶה’, ‘this’ is a reference to the Torah. Joseph tells his father that his children are under the protection of the Shechina because he was connected to the Torah.
“וְזֹאת הַתּוֹרָה אֲשֶׁר שָׂם מֹשֶׁה לִפְנֵי בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל.”
“Now this (זֹאת) is the law which Moses set before the sons of Israel;”
The Torah is called sometimes ‘זאת’,’this’, and sometimes it is called ‘זה’ ‘this’. ‘זאת’ is an aspect of a female that receives and reveal, and ‘זה’ is an aspect of male that carry the actions.
When the Israelites follow the Torah and its precepts, the Torah has the aspect of male. When the Torah is studied and its secrets are revealed, it has the aspect of female ‘זאת’ like the ground of the world.
“אִם תַּחֲנֶה עָלַי מַחֲנֶה לֹא יִירָא לִבִּי אִם תָּקוּם עָלַי מִלְחָמָה בְּזֹאת אֲנִי בוֹטֵחַ.”
“Though an army may encamp against me, My heart will not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this (זֹאת) I will be confident.”
Rav Nachman says that ‘זֹאת’ is the aspect of the Torah that will be revealed when Mashiach comes.
“הַנִּצָּנִים נִרְאוּ בָאָרֶץ עֵת הַזָּמִיר הִגִּיעַ וְקוֹל הַתּוֹר נִשְׁמַע בְּאַרְצֵנוּ.”
“The flowers have already appeared in the land; the season of singing birds has come, And the voice of the turtledove has been heard in our land.”
The Torah was given an aspect of Dove that has a beautiful voice like the words of the Torah.
The turtledove ‘תור’ is a male dove and it has the letters of ‘תורה’ ‘Torah’ but without the ‘ה’ that gives it the female aspect.
Before the redemption, when Mashiach makes wars and judgments on the nations that enslave the Israelites, the Torah is called ‘תור’, ‘Turtledove’, male and ‘זה’.
‘The flowers that appear in the Land’ are the aspects of the patriarchs; Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that will rise and we could see them.
‘the season of singing birds has come’ is a reference to the songs that the Levites will sing when they do the services in the new Holy Temple.
When King David said “In this (זֹאת) I will be confident”, he meant that all his work is to reveal the Torah and earn the protection of the Shechina.
Recently, I get a lot of questions about the current state of the world. what is the impact of this news, what will happen next and other questions that a highly spiritual person may have or give answers. Personally, I don’t get into predictions because history taught us that even great Kabbalists could not predict time of great events or the coming of Mashiach.
All the signs and events around the world, lead us to believe that We are in the final war between good and evil. To overcome this period we should only pick the side of the Light. We should connect strongly to the study of Torah and Zohar and have complete certainty in HaShem in everything we do. When we see fear or any kind of darkness, we turn immediately to the Light. There is no other choice because otherwise, darkness will swallow us.
Choose your sources of news carefully because many of them are channels of the negative side. The global events that happen tell us that there is no more free choice at the level of governments. They follow ‘scripts’ forced by God, similar to the way God ‘hardened’ Pharaoh’s heart to continue inflicting plagues until his total destruction.
We should not believe the fear the environment tries to push on us. We move only forward toward the Light. Only then we can see the flowers coming out and hear the birds singing.
