What’s the Secret Behind the Torah’s Numbers and Bible’s Divine Timeline? Logarithms.

There is a saying that you find what you look for? Such as the number 42, as in the 42-Letter Name of G-d. I see it in news reports everywhere and it keeps coming up for me. This could be because I’m hyper-sensitive to that number having written a book about that particular Name (The Genesis Prayer), or that I’m sending out energetic inquiries about it into the universe, or the collective consciousness as some would call it, or as some scientists would speculate, that I’m filtering out all else. Maybe it’s a little of everything. Another example is my conviction in the date 5778 (2018 CE) because that was the date given by the tzaddikim for the geula, final redemption.  Again, I’ve written books about it and have found extensive proof of it within the context of the Torah and modern mathematics and physics, but then some skeptics would say that I would have done the same with the year 6329 or 2012 (though, I never found much to collaborate the end-of-the world thesis based on the Mayan calendar) had those been given to me. So let’s take some of the key historic Biblical calendar dates, as illustrated in The Divine Calendar, such as 3760(0 ce), the pivotal beginning of the Gregorian (Western/Christian calendar);  -422 BCE (3338 HC), the fall of the First Holy Temple; 3830 (70 CE), the fall of the Second Holy Temple; and 5778 (2018 ce), the date prophesied for the manifestation of the tree-of-life reality, with its mirror date of 2018 HC, when G-d made His Covenant with Abraham, promising that final redemption. Given...

The Calm Before the Storm

We not going to make a habit of listing the current events that fit the prophecies, but so much has transpired since the preemptive assassination of Rav Abuchatzeira that opened up a crack for the darkness to flood in that we’ll list them this once and move on. There was movement of Logar Wardak Provinces, gateways to the capital of Afghanistan, Kabul, into the hands of the Taliban, punctuated with the shoot down a Chinook helicopter in the early hours of the Sabbath, killing 30 Americans, including 22 members of the Navy Seal 6 team, the same elite commandos that had captured (killed?) Bin Laden. Bashar al-Assad and his Syrian military found a new boldness and flexed its muscles against its democracy seeking citizens by deploying dozens of tanks and armored vehicles and wiping out entire cities, Syria’s fourth and fifth largest, Hama and Deir al-Zour respectively. London is burning, literally, as a small anti-police demonstration spiraled into days of looting, violence, and anarchistic mayhem. Tens of thousands of police troops had to be called in. Many of the hoodlums were children with a you-can’t-touch-me attitude. In the generation in the desert, the parents all perished and the children were saved.  Spiritually, we’re far less enlightened than that generation, and the cumulative negativity of our environment is much thicker and denser. S.& P. issued a historic downgrade of United States Treasury securities to AA+ from AAA on Friday night, Erev Shabbat. That was already after the markets had tumbled double digits due to ever-weakening economic data from the US and around the world and the debt problems of Italy...

The Shot that should have been Heard Around the World.

Last weekend, we mentioned that the events of last week had profound repercussions for the world, mankind, and that the battle had begun. We weren’t prognosticating the crashing world markets, or the advent of phase II of the global economic crises, but given what we’ve learned from the 10 Commandments, it’s not surprising. Last Thursday, on the death-anniversary of Joseph HaZaddik, one of the most powerful zaddiks (righteous souls) of our generation was assassinated. He was one of the lamed-vav, one of the 36 righteous souls that act as pillars to support our world, Rabbi Elazar Abuhatzeira. Rabbi Elazar Abuhatzeira, the grandson of Rabbi Yisrael Abuhatzeira, known as the Baba Sali, was stabbed to death on Thursday night in Be’er Sheva while he was hosting guests for consultation at a yeshiva near his home.  That he was murdered on 7/28, that he was murdered in Be’er Sheva, that his assailant was 42 years old, and that Rabbi Elazar Abuhatzeira was born in 1948, like Abraham Avinu and the Nation of Israel, were not coincidental. If you recall your history books, World War I started because of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria in Sarajevo, 1914.  A single event, a single murder led to death and destruction of millions. And even more to the point, recall that before Al Queda attacked the United States on 9/11, he and his Taliban cohorts, assassinated the charismatic leader of the mujahedin in a preemptive move to seriously weaken any US retaliation. Immediately following the assassination of Rabbi Elazar Abuhatzeira, we have  experienced the physically unrelated mass resignation of Turkey’s secular military...

Rav Ashlag’s Final Words and the Secret of the Final Redemption.

Rav Ashlag was the greatest kabbalist of the past century. Known as Hasulam (the ladder), he was not only the first to translate the Zohar from Aramaic to Hebrew but he wrote volumes of explanations as well and could have written hundreds more by his own account had he had the financial means to cover the pens and paper.  His legacy included several other books including The Ten Luminous Emanations, which brought new light and understanding to the study of the Tree-of-life as taught by the Arizal 400 years earlier. Rabbi Yehuda Halevi Ashlag died at the age of 70, on Yom Kippur, 1954, and with his last divine breath uttered these 5 words , quoted from Psalm 91:16 אֹרֶךְ יָמִים, אַשְׂבִּיעֵהוּ;    וְאַרְאֵהוּ, בִּישׁוּעָתִי. which translates to “With long life will I satisfy him, and make Him to behold My salvation.” For 56 years now, since his passing, these words were shrouded in mystery. Yet, we have to look no further than the initials of the 5 words (Alef,Yud, Alef,Vav, Bet), whose gematria miliui (spelled-out numerical value) is exactly 666. Now, for sure Rav Ashlag wasn’t referring to the infamous number of Revelations, but to the year that the kabbalistic proportion of .666 points to for the geula (final redemption), 5778 HC (2018 CE). After all, it was Rav Ashlag who taught it to me. (Please see The Divine Calendar or our article on the missing 222 years.) Like the design of the Tree-of-life itself, Rav Ashlag separated the 6 millennium (6000 years) into those years dedicated to G-d (upper 1/3. or .333), and those to the self...

666 and the Mark of the Beast continued…

In our previous article we explained how the value 666 came to be associated with the beast long before Revelations was written and then we examined in depth the verse from Ecclesiastes where the origins lay, including all the allusions to Moshiach (the Messiah), Moshiach Ben David, and to the year 2018 (5778 HC), which is prophesied for the geula (final redemption). Today, we want to briefly add a little more. In our previous article we showed 3 different ways that the simple 14 word verse hinted at 5778 (2018 ce). Here is one more. Ecclesiastes 3:21 “מִי יוֹדֵעַ, רוּחַ בְּנֵי הָאָדָם–הָעֹלָה הִיא, לְמָעְלָה; וְרוּחַ, הַבְּהֵמָה–הַיֹּרֶדֶת הִיא, לְמַטָּה לָאָרֶץ” “Who knows the spirit of man whether it goes upward, and the spirit of the beast whether it goes downward to the earth?” As previously stated the first 3 words numerically add up to 357 including the kolel (3) for the 3 words, Adding 1, as is common practice, gives us 358, the value for Moshiach. Similarly, the last 3 words add up to 421 plus the kolel of 3 to give us 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David. When we bring those first and last 3 words together, the 6 words sum to 357 + 421 = 778, as in the year 5778, and now we can begin to understand all the superfluous prefixes of the letter “Hey(H)” of numerical value 5 that the verse contained.  Nothing is written without a reason, usually many reasons. The symmetrical verse juxtaposes the path of Man’s spirit with that of the beast and each half contains 3 of the 6...

Who knew? The Mark of the Beast Really is 666.

The number 666 is infamous, made so by the phrase in the final chapters of the Christian Bible: Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. In our next couple posts, we’ll explain what this has to do with the geula (final redemption) and Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag’s last words, and separately, what is has to do with the Tree-of-life. Meanwhile, today we’ll supply some of that yearned for wisdom: what the number 666 has to do with both the beast and the man, as given to us by the Tanakh (Old Testament), several hundred years “Revelations” was written. The answer lies in the Hebrew and its gematria, even the English translation of Ecclesiastes 3:21, “Who knows the spirit of man whether it goes upward, and the spirit of the beast whether it goes downward to the earth?” is evocative of the much later written verse in the Christian Revelations. TIKKUN 46 of the Tikkune Zohar brings up Ecclesiastes 3:21 in its discussion of בְּרֵאשִׁית , “In the beginning”, the first word of the Torah.  It forms two words , בָּרָא   שִׁית, meaning “created six(6)”. The Zohar tells us that this refers to the six (6) bundled sefirot (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin (chesed gevurah, tiferet, netzach, hod and yesod), which form the central column.  It is represented by the letter Vav of the Tetragrammaton YHVH name. It is the connector between Binah (the upper world), which is the provider of the light, to Malchut (our dimension). “From Binah came out...
