Daily Zohar – Tikunim – #381 – The wrath of God
Tikkun 21 – 122
Exodus 32:32 “ וְעַתָּה, אִם-תִּשָּׂא חַטָּאתָם; וְאִם-אַיִן–מְחֵנִי נָא, מִסִּפְרְךָ אֲשֶׁר כָּתָבְתָּ”
“Yet now, if you will forgive their sin–; and if not, please wipe me out of your book which you have written.’”
After the sin of the Golden Calf, God asked Moses to leave him alone so he can wipe out the nation and start a new one with him.
Exodus 32:10 “Now let Me be alone, so my wrath on them become stronger, so that I may consume them; and I will make of you a great nation”
Think about this for a moment. God is asking Moses to go down so he can let his wrath loose!
The Zohar reveals us that when Moses pleaded to God it was like he held the hands of God and Tree of Life in his hands.
Exodus 32:11 “וַיֹּאמֶר, לָמָה יְהוָה יֶחֱרֶה אַפְּךָ בְּעַמֶּךָ, אֲשֶׁר הוֹצֵאתָ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם, בְּכֹחַ גָּדוֹל וּבְיָד חֲזָקָה”
“and said: why YHVH you set your wrath against your people, that you have brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand?”
“Great Power” גָּדוֹל=Chessed, is the right hand of God, right column. “Mighty hand”, חֲזָקָה= Gevura, left column.
Again Moses uses the patriarchs that are the chariots for the right, left and central columns to hold the connections of the Tree of Life, so God will not disconnect the head אֲשֶׁר, =ראש, נִשְׁבַּעְתָּ is שבע, which is the seven sefirot below Da’at.
Moses ‘forced’ YHVH to hold to the system of the Tree of Life and keep his support to it. He was at home with God.
Numbers 12:7 “לֹא-כֵן, עַבְדִּי מֹשֶׁה: בְּכָל-בֵּיתִי, נֶאֱמָן הוּא”
“My servant Moses is not so; he is trusted in all My house;”
He had the power to prevent the destruction of the Tree of Life and he did it when he told God, “If you don’t forgive them, then wipe me out of the book”, meaning No Da’at and no Zeir Anpin. In that situation the whole YHVH system could have collapsed back to the original Emanator. Yes. YHVH comes from the original Emenator, blessed be he. The Emenator is also called Endless Light.
Moses was a reincarnation of Noah, so when God came to wipe out the wicked from the world, he did not plead for them. With his actions that we described above, Moses completed Noah’s correction.
