Redemption is no more than the external manifestation of the inner state of tikkun ("restitution") which depends on the deeds of Israel and a realization of the way of life which the Kabbalah preaches. The fact of tikkun is not something which depends on a miracle, but rather on human action ... [the Messiah's] coming is conditional upon the accomplishment of the task of Israel in the "tikkun of the world." According to this latter view, there is a human and historical preparation for redemption and the Messiah will come automatically if this preparation is completed. This belief is widespread among the disciples of Isaac Luria, and it follows logically from the basic assumptions of Lurianic Kabbalah. (Encyclopedia Judaica, "Redemption")
The main concern of Lurianic Kabbalah, as has been mentioned, is with the details of the process of tikkun ... certain concluding actions have been reserved for man. These are the ultimate aim of creation, and the completion of tikkun, which is synonymous with the redemption, depends on man's performing them. (Encyclopedia Judaica, "Kabbalah")
Now that we know that Kabbalism maintains that Judaics themselves bring about their own redemption (laying bare the self-worship of Judaism), it's interesting to note what conditions must be fulfilled according to Kabbalah in order for "redemption" to take place:
"But withal redemption will not be complete until Amalek will be exterminated, for against Amalek the oath was taken that “the Lord will have war against Amalek from generation to generation” (Ex. XVII,16). (Soncino Zohar, Bereshith, Folio 25b)
As a side note, Daniel Matt's recently published English translation of the Zohar has omitted this genocidal prophesy completely without even a footnote explaining it's absence. I can't imagine why. In fact, folios 22b through 29a are completely missing. It must have been the Christian censors! Ha! I shall be interested to see if Matt censors Zohar III 282a (which places Jesus next to Muhammad amid worms, dung, dead dogs and assess) from a forthcoming volume of his English translated Zohar.
Benedict XVI says that Judaic anticipation of "the Messiah" is not in vain. For the good of all of those unfortunate to be categorized as "Amalek" by the rabbis I wish that he would cease encouraging those psychopaths.
And for all of those who have been duped into accepting the Neturei Karta, Satmar and other anti-Zionist "Torah-true" Hasidim as allies, I would let you in on the fact that the Zohar quoted above is the "Torah" that they are true to.
