Daily Zohar – Tikunim – #341 – Can we make it before the time?
Tikkun 21 – 82
3:8 “ וַיְהִי בַּחֲצִי הַלַּיְלָה, וַיֶּחֱרַד הָאִישׁ וַיִּלָּפֵת; וְהִנֵּה אִשָּׁה, שֹׁכֶבֶת מַרְגְּלֹתָיו”
“And it came to pass at midnight, that the man was startled, and turned himself; and, behold, a woman lay at his feet.”
3:13 “לִינִי הַלַּיְלָה, וְהָיָה בַבֹּקֶר אִם-יִגְאָלֵךְ טוֹב יִגְאָל, וְאִם-לֹא יַחְפֹּץ לְגָאֳלֵךְ וּגְאַלְתִּיךְ אָנֹכִי, חַי-יְהוָה; שִׁכְבִי, עַד-הַבֹּקֶר.”
“Dwell in here during the night, and when it comes the morning and he will redeem you, the light of good will redeem. And if he finds no reason to redeem you, I (אָנֹכִי, which is the same light of the Exodus and the beginning of the Ten Utterances (aka commandments) ) will redeem you, חי YHVH.
If we make actions that elevate us from the lower levels, ‘feet’, which are Malchut and supporting the Shechina, then the light of Redemption will come from the ‘husband’, Zeir Anpin, otherwise it will come from Binah.
The Redemption will come regardless of our actions because God made his promise. The difference is the time and the process that will lead to it.
If we have the right actions to bring it sooner , then it will come from a closer level to us, which is Zeir Anpin. If not, then we will go through the whole process of cleansing until the time comes and the Light of Binah is revealed.
That explains the prophecy of Isaiah.
Isaiah 60:22 “אֲנִי יְהוָה, בְּעִתָּהּ אֲחִישֶׁנָּה”
“I am YHVH will hasten it (the redemption) in its time.”
The conflict in the meaning of the redemption time in this verse is resolved with the help of the Zohar as explained above.
In the verse God promises “In its time”, which means that the redemption will come from Binah after we go through harsh cleansing process.
And will “Hasten it” if our actions build a pure channel to Zeir Anpin and we merit its light.
As it is said: Isaiah 60:20
“לֹא-יָבוֹא עוֹד שִׁמְשֵׁךְ, וִירֵחֵךְ לֹא יֵאָסֵף: כִּי יְהוָה, יִהְיֶה-לָּךְ לְאוֹר עוֹלָם, וְשָׁלְמוּ, יְמֵי אֶבְלֵךְ”
“Thy sun shall no more go down, Neither shall the moon withdraw itself; for YHVH shall be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended.”
