It's amazing how in just under 4 minutes, Rabbi Daniel Travis explains what's going on here:
Thanking Hashem When Things Look Bad #1063-Exposing Scandals Before Moshiach Pt1
Basically, the Zohar predicts how before Mashiach, the Erev Rav will make the Torah SEEM putrid.
It's not, of course.
The Torah is the clearest, purest, most beautiful part of the Universe.
But the Erev Rav will behave in a way that repels the world AWAY from the Torah.
It's sort of like throwing sewage all over the Hope diamond. You might think the large lump in the middle of the sewage is a particularly large and nasty chunk of manure.
But no...it's the Hope diamond.
No matter how much sewage anyone dumps on it, it remains just as prized & valuable as ever.
Sewage cannot do more than cover the Hope diamond. Sewage cannot actually harm or change the Hope diamond in any way.
Don't let yourself get confused by the vast amounts of revolting sewage dumped all over by the Erev Rav!
Don't be fooled! It's all a cover-up. A particularly flabbergasting and repulsive cover-up to be sure, but only a cover-up nonetheless.
The real diamond is still there...just as precious, unique, and unchanged as ever.
