Tikkun 21 – 177
In this section the Zohar describes the future and lasting Holy Temple.
“ וַאֲנִי אֶהְיֶה-לָּהּ נְאֻם-יְהוָה, חוֹמַת אֵשׁ סָבִיב; וּלְכָבוֹד, אֶהְיֶה בְתוֹכָהּ”
“For I, said YHVH, will be for her a wall of fire round about, and I will be the glory in the midst of her.”
The wall of fire (the name here represents Keter אֶהְיֶה) is the protection that God will place around Jerusalem and the new Temple.
The ‘Glory’ in her midst is אֶהְיֶה and the new Torah, which will be made out of the last 32 sparks of Light that YHVH will correct in the Final Redemption.
“וְאִבָּנֶה גַם-אָנֹכִי, מִמֶּנָּה.”
“and I also may be build up through her.”
The root word for ‘build’ has the same meaning as Binah. To build stronger with the light, we have to let go of our selfish desires.
Rachel gave her maid, Bilhah, to Jacob as a step in building a higher connection with her husband. By letting go of her role as a wife she could draw the light she needed to expand her vessel and bring Joseph and Benjamin. Benjamin’s tribe was located in Jerusalem area as in the aspect of the protection for Jerusalem.
Both of Rachel’s sons are considered Tzadikkim. They acted with high level of restriction and revealed great light in the world.
Sarai also gave her servant Hagar to Abram for the same reason (Genesis 16:2).
“וְעַמֵּךְ כֻּלָּם צַדִּיקִים, לְעוֹלָם יִירְשׁוּ אָרֶץ; נֵצֶר מטעו (מַטָּעַי) מַעֲשֵׂה יָדַי, לְהִתְפָּאֵר.”
“Your people also shall be all righteous, they shall inherit the land for ever; the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, wherein I glory.”
The righteous people who will be standing at the time of the Final Redemption will have total control over their physical reality, which is the Malchut level. They will experience unlimited control as a ‘branch of God’s planting’, which means that they will become a part of the Tree of Life by their righteous actions.
The Holy Temple will be done by the three hands of God, which is the 42 letters name, known as the Ana B’Koach. It will be made with Silver, Gold and precious stones.
Rabbi Yehudah Tzvi Brandwein of blessed memory explains here, that when YHVH builds the Holy Temple it will stand forever because the first two temples were built by the people and not so with the third one.
It said in Psalms 127:1
“אִם-יְהוָה, לֹא-יִבְנֶה בַיִת שָׁוְא עָמְלוּ בוֹנָיו בּוֹ”
“Except if YHVH won’t build (in future tense) the house, its laborers build it in vain”
Simply said “If YHVH won’t build the Holy Temple the energy from the lower levels can not keep it standing. That is why the first two temples could be destroyed. This verse also implies that the next Temple will be built by YHVH.
“יְרוּשָׁלִַם הַבְּנוּיָה כְּעִיר, שֶׁחֻבְּרָה-לָּהּ יַחְדָּו”
“Jerusalem, that is built as a city that is joined together;”
Jerusalem will be joined with Zion, which is the spiritual connection point above it. Yessod and Malchut will join together and the supernal light will shine over Jerusalem forever.
