Daily Zohar # 3537 – Shemot – He reveals His secret to His servants
82. עַד שֶׁהָיוּ יוֹשְׁבִים, עָבַר תִּינוֹק אֶחָד וְהָיָה קוֹרֵא, (ישעיה יט) מַשָּׂא מִצְרָיִם הִנֵּה ה’ רֹכֵב עַל עָב קַל וּבָא מִצְרַיִם. עָבַר חֲבֵרוֹ הַשֵּׁנִי וְאָמַר, וְאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם תִּהְיֶה שְׁמָמָה. עָבַר חֲבֵרוֹ הַשְּׁלִישִׁי וְאָמַר, וְאָבְדָה חָכְמַת מִצְרַיִם. רָאוּ שֶׁאוֹתוֹ חֵץ שֶׁל כְּנַף שְׂמֹאל נִשְׂרָף, וּשְׁלֹשֶׁת הָאֲחֵרִים שֶׁהָיוּ עָלָיו לֹא נִשְׂרְפוּ.
83. אָמַר רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר, מַה שֶּׁאָמַר הָעוֹף וְהַתִּינוֹקוֹת, הַכֹּל דָּבָר אֶחָד, וְהַכֹּל הוּא נְבוּאָה עֶלְיוֹנָה, (וְהַכֹּל הוּא בְּסוֹד הַחָכְמָה) וְרָצָה הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא לְהַרְאוֹת לָנוּ נִסְתָּרוֹת עֶלְיוֹנוֹת שֶׁהוּא עוֹשֶׂה. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב (עמוס ג) כִּי לֹא יַעֲשֶׂה ה’ אֱלֹהִים דָּבָר כִּי אִם גָּלָה סוֹדוֹ אֶל עֲבָדָיו הַנְּבִיאִים.
Continued from previous DZ
Rabbi Elazar took the arrows into his nostrils, and blood came out. The red implies judgments. He said ‘certainly three rulers of nations stand in Rome and will make evil decrees against Israel from the side of the Romans’.
The three come from Chessed, Gevurah, and Tiferet of Zeir Anpin to bring bad decrees on Israel. It happened because Israel caused flaws in the sefirot of Chessed, Gevurah, and Tiferet of Zeir Anpin, and let power go to the Romans to make bad laws and destroy the Holy Temple.
Then rabbi Elazar took the arrow that came from the left-wing, smelled it and a black fire came out of it. Black is the color of the Nukva, and it is not included in the colors of the Rainbow, white, red, and green that comes from the three lines of Z”A.
Rabbi Elazar drew the light of the three arrows from above and threw them to the ground on top of the arrow from the left. The bottom arrow burnt while the three stayed strong because they had the Light from the Right side.
While they were sitting, a child passed by, saying the verse from Isaiah 19:1
“מַשָּׂא מִצְרָיִם הִנֵּה יְהוָה רֹכֵב עַל עָב קַל וּבָא מִצְרַיִם וְנָעוּ אֱלִילֵי מִצְרַיִם מִפָּנָיו וּלְבַב מִצְרַיִם יִמַּס בְּקִרְבּוֹ.”
“The burden against Egypt. Behold, YHVH rides on a swift cloud, And will come into Egypt; The idols of Egypt will totter at His presence, And the heart of Egypt will melt in its midst.”
A second child passed by and said “and the land of Egypt would be desolate”. A third child passed and said, “the wisdom of Egypt is lost”. They saw that the arrow from the left-wing was burnt, and the three arrows on top of it were not burnt.
Rabbi Elazar said that what the ‘bird’ and what the children said is the same supernal prophecy. The Holy One Blessed be He wanted to show them supernal secrets of his actions as it is written; Amos 3:7
“כִּי לֹא יַעֲשֶׂה אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה דָּבָר כִּי אִם גָּלָה סוֹדוֹ אֶל עֲבָדָיו הַנְּבִיאִים.”
“Surely YHVH GOD does nothing Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.”
Even though we are not righteous at the level of Rabbi Elazar and his friends to see the future of global events, we do get messages according to our spiritual level, from the world around us to help us with our correction process. The messages may come from dreams, people, children, or even pain that is inflicted on us.
