Question: In the outside world, the destruction of the Temple was manifested as various events happening precisely on the 9th of Av.
In 1312 BC messengers of Moses convinced people not to enter the Land of Israel. On the 9th of Av in 586 BC, Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the First Temple. On the 9th of Av in 70 AD, the Second Temple was destroyed by the Romans.
On the 9th of Av in 135 AD, the Betar fortress fell; it was the last stronghold in the Second Jewish War. On the 9th of Av 1290, the Jews were expelled from England. It goes on and on.
Is there any mysticism here?
Answer: This is not mysticism but information, clearly documented historical dates that indicate a certain recurrence. That is, there is a certain spiritual or physical natural law that continuously repeats on this date.
Just as in nature, on certain days there is a solar conjunction or full moon that we can calculate in advance. The same can be said about the 9th of Av.
This is a day of great events, when evil is revealed and serves as a springboard to the next state. According to what the wisdom of Kabbalah explains, we have gone through all the possible destructions that relate to the 9th of Av, and now this day no longer threatens us with any destruction because we are in the lowest possible state.
On the contrary, now we can only aspire for the state of connection, for the construction of the so-called Third Temple. When we create it by our common effort, we will fulfill our destiny and the entire world will connect in the best, highest, eternal, and perfect state.
