Daily Zohar 3836
125. וְעוֹד, לָמָּה לֹא הָיָה בַּיּוֹם כְּפִי שֶׁשְּׁאַלְתֶּם? שָׁנִינוּ, כָּתוּב הַיּוֹם אַתֶּם יֹצְאִים, וְכָתוּב הוֹצִיאֲךָ ה’ אֱלֹהֶיךָ מִמִּצְרַיִם לַיְלָה. אֶלָּא שָׁנִינוּ, עִקַּר גְּאֻלַּת יִשְׂרָאֵל לֹא הָיָה אֶלָּא בַּלַּיְלָה, שֶׁהַלַּיְלָה מַתִּיר קְשָׁרִים וְעוֹשֶׂה נְקָמוֹת, וְהַיּוֹם הוֹצִיא אוֹתָם בְּרֹאשׁ גָּלוּי, זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב (במדבר לג) יָצְאוּ בְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּיָד רָמָה לְעֵינֵי כָּל מִצְרָיִם. (וְעוֹד, הַלַּיְלָה מַתִּיר אֶת הַקְּשָׁרִים וְעוֹשֶׂה נְקָמוֹת וְדִינִים, וְהַיּוֹם מְגַלֶּה וּמְפַרְסֵם הַנֵּס וְהַנְּקָמָה שֶׁנַּעֲשָׂה. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב יָצְאוּ בְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּיָד רָמָה וְגוֹ’.) וְכָתוּב וּמִצְרַיִם מְקַבְּרִים אֵת אֲשֶׁר הִכָּה ה’ בָּהֶם כָּל בְּכוֹר. זֶהוּ פִּרְסוּם הַנֵּס.

The festivals, holidays, and Shabbats are all remembrances of the Exodus from Egypt, and upon it, all stands. If it were not for that, there would be no observance of the holidays and Shabbats times. Because of this, the memory of the Exodus from Egypt is kept on all times and holidays and Shabbats.
The Exodus from Egypt is the foundation and root of the Torah, the mitzvot, and the complete faith of Israel. And therefore, the Exodus is mentioned many times in the Torah.
Why was not the Exodus of Egypt in the day? It is written,
“הַיּוֹם אַתֶּם יֹצְאִים בְּחֹדֶשׁ הָאָבִיב.”
“On this day, you are going out, in the month of Abib (Spring).”
“שָׁמוֹר אֶת חֹדֶשׁ הָאָבִיב וְעָשִׂיתָ פֶּסַח לַיהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ כִּי בְּחֹדֶשׁ הָאָבִיב הוֹצִיאֲךָ יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ מִמִּצְרַיִם לָיְלָה.”
“Observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover to YHVH your God, for in the month of Abib YHVH your God brought you out of Egypt by night.”
We learned that the main redemption of Israel was only at night; that is the secret of Malchut that is called Night. The night opens a connection and takes vengeance, and the day brought them out with a high hand (בְּיָד רָמָה) to publicize the miracle.
Numbers 33:3, 4
“וַיִּסְעוּ מֵרַעְמְסֵס בַּחֹדֶשׁ הָרִאשׁוֹן בַּחֲמִשָּׁה עָשָׂר יוֹם לַחֹדֶשׁ הָרִאשׁוֹן מִמָּחֳרַת הַפֶּסַח יָצְאוּ בְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּיָד רָמָה לְעֵינֵי כָּל מִצְרָיִם.”
“וּמִצְרַיִם מְקַבְּרִים אֵת אֲשֶׁר הִכָּה יְהוָה בָּהֶם כָּל בְּכוֹר וּבֵאלֹהֵיהֶם עָשָׂה יְהוָה שְׁפָטִים.”
“They departed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the day after the Passover the children of Israel went out with high hand (בְּיָד רָמָה) in the sight of all the Egyptians.”
“While the Egyptians were burying all their firstborn, whom YHVH had killed among them. Also, on their gods, YHVH had executed judgments.”
How to earn a share in the Final Redemption?
Crucial lesson! Please ask your questions below.
The first commandment reminds us that God took us out of Egypt. “I am YHVH your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.” (Exodus 20:2).
Egypt represents our flawed vessel with a built-in desire for the self that comes from the other side. This state of the vessel keeps us away from achieving a complete unification with the higher Light. It requires faith and continuous connection to the Light.
The Final Redemption would be in the aspect of breaking the bondage that our vessel imposes on us. When our body is in perfect health, without worries about food or shelter, our souls would be free and able to connect to the supernal Light that provides everything for us.
After leaving Egypt, the children of Israel reached a state of immortality before receiving the Torah. It gave us the ‘remembrance’ for the future redemption that would be final. At that time, the negative side had power and took away immortality from us. In the Final Redemption, Hashem would remove the negative side entirely and forever. Without the negative side in our system, our ‘vessels’ would rbe in a pure and immortal state.
We count 50 days of the Omer from the day we left Egypt until the day we received the Torah on Mount Sinai. The Exodus is mentioned 50 times in the Torah to provide us the keys to unlock the 50 gates and pass through them from Malchut to Binah.
As we come closer to the 50th gate of Binah, the other side releases its forces to block us from reaching it and open the gate to the Light of the Final Redemption. The evil try to disconnect us from the Light of Hashem and inflict pain on our physical existence to increase our bondage to the body and dependency on them. When we are busy with our physiological needs, we neglect the connection to the Light of freedom and peace.
The evil side (dictators, and corrupt governments) takes away our independence. They redefine humanity and create new genders and divisions between people in any way they can. They control the supply of food, energy, our health, and safety. They reduce the value of money in the hands of people by creating inflation. They limit our spiritual connections by enforcing restrictions on accessing our temples. They know that when we are busy with our physiological needs, we disconnect from the faith because without faith, people lose hope and submit to those who are supposed to provide for their needs in this world.
Pharaoh said he loved the Israelites and wanted them to stay in Egypt, and he promised to provide for them while they let go of their freedom.
The goal of the evil side is to destroy everything important to us. They attack us on all levels of needs. See Maslow’S Hierarchy Of Needs
They will lie to us and present everything as good and better for us. They want to reset the global system of individual autonomies, take our freedom and have complete dominance over us by centralized control (AI, Social network control our thoughts, Social credit, ‘passports’, etc.). The simple rule to understand their evil plan is to see where they limit our freedom to give us benefits. It is a lie that brings us closer to slavery. We should never trade liberty for government benefits. If a famous ‘expert’ dictates physicians how to treat the sick, providing specific prescriptions, instead of allowing the health providers the freedom to treat their patients as they see best. This ‘expert’ represents the ‘Angel of Death‘ and a servant of Sat-n.
Our first and last redeemer is no other than YHVH. He redeemed us from Egypt, and he will save us again from future slavery.
“כֹּה אָמַר יְהוָה מֶלֶךְ יִשְׂרָאֵל וְגֹאֲלוֹ יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת אֲנִי רִאשׁוֹן וַאֲנִי אַחֲרוֹן וּמִבַּלְעָדַי אֵין אֱלֹהִים.”
“Thus says YHVH, the King of Israel, And his Redeemer, YHVH of hosts: ‘I am the First, and I am the Last; Besides Me, there is no God.”
We should not even trust men that raise the ‘flag’ of faith in Hashem. We trust the Torah and the words of the Tzadikim. When Mashiach comes, it would be clear to us without a doubt.
“אַל תִּבְטְחוּ בִנְדִיבִים בְּבֶן אָדָם שֶׁאֵין לוֹ תְשׁוּעָה.”
“תֵּצֵא רוּחוֹ יָשֻׁב לְאַדְמָתוֹ בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא אָבְדוּ עֶשְׁתֹּנֹתָיו.”
“Do not trust in noblemen, In mortal man, in whom there is no salvation.”
“When his spirit departs, he returns to the ground; on that very day, his plans perish.”
Our existent in this world is temporary. The Torah teaches us that we can break all the Torah laws to save lives, but at the same time ready to die and to keep our faith in Hashem because when we lose it, we lose immortality. It is better to die free with faith in Hashem rather than fall into slavery under the evil side. They start by controlling our bodies, then our souls. They serve Sat-n and would not hesitate to use us as sacrifices to Sat-n and other idols like Molech and Baal Peor.
A free soul would be resurrected to immortality, but those who succumb to evil lose their place in the Final Redemption.
Please ask questions because we all need to identify and understand evil. It would help us gain control and open the fiftieth gate of Binah.
B”H, we see Mashaich soon in our days, Amen.
