Tikkun 69 – 59
When the time comes, Moses will open the way for Mashiach to come down to the world. He will bring together the right and left columns into the central column.
“מוֹלִיךְ לִימִין מֹשֶׁה, זְרוֹעַ תִּפְאַרְתּוֹ; בּוֹקֵעַ מַיִם מִפְּנֵיהֶם, לַעֲשׂוֹת לוֹ שֵׁם עוֹלָם”
(I erased the totally misleading translation and replaced it with the kabbalistic meaning. Zion)
“Lead the Right to the arm of Tiferet. Create opening in the water in front of them to make for him everlasting name.”
“יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵי אֲבֹתֵיכֶם אֱלֹהֵי אַבְרָהָם אֱלֹהֵי יִצְחָק וֵאלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב, שְׁלָחַנִי אֲלֵיכֶם; זֶה-שְּׁמִי לְעֹלָם, וְזֶה זִכְרִי לְדֹר דֹּר”
“YHVH the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you; this is My name for ever, and this is My memorial unto all generations”
This is the message God instructed Moses to bring to the Israelites.
Moses is telling them that YHVH controls the three channels of lights opened by Abraham (Right, Chessed), Isaac (Left, Gevurah) and Jacob (Central, Tiferet) and he, Moses, is the messenger of the Redemption.
YHVH is the name that represents the entire Creation and his memory, which is the aspect of connection to Malchut and The Shechina is for all generations. The word for generations that is used here is דר דר, with numerical value of 408, same as זאת, which is the aspect of the Shechina.
“מַלֵּא, שְׁבֻעַ זֹאת; וְנִתְּנָה לְךָ גַּם-אֶת-זֹאת, בַּעֲבֹדָה אֲשֶׁר תַּעֲבֹד עִמָּדִי, עוֹד, שֶׁבַע-שָׁנִים אֲחֵרוֹת”
“Fulfil the week (Seven) of this (זאת) one, and we will give thee the other (זאת) also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.”
Rachel’s father, Lavan, tried to ‘trick’ Jacob, giving him Lea instead of Rachel so he can use him for another seven years. Lea came before Rachel and was supposed to be given to Esau. Lea was at the level of Binah and Rachel knew that. She supported the ‘plan’ of ‘tricking’ Jacob so he would have connection to Lea, Binah and upper H ה and later with her, Malchut and the lower letter Hה of the name.
Jacob as central column, Tiferet and the letter Vav ו of the name which now holds the key to the Final Redemption. Joseph as Yessod, ‘bridges’ ו Zeir Anpin and Malchut and above him is Moses as Daat with the key to release the light from the upper levels to the lower seven through the central column.
So the verse above reveals us Jacob’s Tikun process that is also the setting for the Final Redemption.
Moses was Jacob’s great great grandson and has merited having immortality, a blessing that continued from Jacob who as a chariot of the central column has control on life.
Rabbi Shimon’s work gave him similar control over life and could achieve immortality. He left the world only because he was asked to do so. He could’ve completed the Tikkun of the whole world but then we would have stayed with ‘bread of Shame’. He left so we can complete our own Tikkun leaving us with his life’s work and energy, the Zohar.
