The Ten Commandments Part VIII: 666, the Most Feared Number?

…Continued from The Ten Commandments

Our last article in the series was about relationship between the time of flood, Noah, Moses, the time of the 10 Commandments, and the time of the final redemption. l

The People

The people, “ET H’AM“, that G-d refers to has the numerical value of 516, which we know from chazal is the number of times Moses needed to pray if he wished to enter the Land of Israel and bring the final redemption, but G-d had instructed Moses to stop at 515. And as we’ve previous written, according to the Arizal these coincide with the 516 hours between Rosh Hashanna and Hoshanna Rabba.

Then 4 verses later, after Moses pleaded on their behalf, the 4 Hebrew word phrase, “God refrained from doing that evil,” has a gematria of 516 as well when the kolel of 4 is subtracted. The connection between them is that G-d put off that decree to destroy the people in the same way that he put off the final redemption h’geula for 66.6 jubilees years.

It’s simple:

The numerical value of h’geula is 50 and 66.6 x 50 = 3330

And

2448 + 3330 = 5778.

But as all judgments, they can be meted out with harshness or mercy. In this case, it was mercy. With the generation of Noach, it was harshness for as chazal explain, Noach didn’t pray for the people as Moses had. The lesson here is that mercy comes when we pray for others.

Back in paragraph 123, Exodus 31:12-17, when G-d is telling Moses to tell the Israelites to keep the Sabbath, making it a day of rest and a sign to you for all generations, “as an eternal covenant,” He referred back to Creation again, and repeated that He made Heaven and Earth in 6 days and on the seventh (Shabbat) “He ceased work and withdrew to the spiritual.”

There are 6666 letter Bets(B) in the Torah up to that point, reminiscent of the value 66666.308 x 26, which as previously stated was the total gematria of the 22,000 letters in this full 5 portion section.

One way to interpret this is that at the 6’s He stopped working on us, and withdrew to spiritual, for in the very next paragraph, the Israelites at the urging and persuasion of the erev rav decide they couldn’t wait another 6 hours, and in 6 verses they made the golden calf instead. It appears they stopped working on themselves first. So is it surprising that the numerical value of the biblical “golden calf” is 108, which is 18 x 6, or chai x 6, meaing giving “life” to the 6. It’s also (6+6+6) x 6.

And 108 as 1 more than 107, which we know indicates the year 5778 (2018 CE), makes the statement that the erev rav (the people) need to wait 1 period beyond 5778, they need to atone for the 6 hours and 6 verses; they’ll need to wait until the 6th millennium, the year 6000, 222 years more.  But beware, knowing that, they will probably do everything they can to prevent everyone else from achieving the Tree-of-life reality in 5778, just as they did 66.6 jubilee years earlier.

The word “spiritual (vyinafash, VYNGSh) has the same gematria, 446, as mot, death. This double meaning is similar to Moshiach and Snake, in that when we’re not working (on ourselves) it can be like and thus can lead to death, or if we chose otherwise, it can lead to connectivity to the spiritual realm, where our physical down-time is a spiritual time (not a dead rest time), a time to work on ourselves spiritually and thus recharge our physical world for the coming 7 day cycle.

This dichotomy on a grander scale is indicating that the 66.6 jubilee (Biblical 50 year period) will lead either to death (a permanent end) or to the spiritual realm (the tree-of-life reality) in the 7th period, and this time frame is hinted at by the 5761 letter Nuns(N), each of numerical value 50, through this same location in the Torah, as in the year 2001 CE, when it appears the period of Oy and Ashrei began (at least physically) with 9/11. Spiritually it began in 5760 as Rav Abraham Azulai suggested it would, 18 (6+6+6) years before 5778.

As we will explain very soon in the upcoming articles in Ten Commandment series the year 2001 CE was indeed marked by the Ten Commandments themselves as the beginning, and the 18-year period was laid out for us.

If we consider chazal’s analysis that after 6 millenniums, the geula will happen in the 7th, then we have to look at the millenniums as elefs (thousands) each of which has the numerical word value of 111, and thus the 6 of them total 666. Thus 66.6 equals 6 millenniums.

And just to hammer home the point, up until chapter 32 and the 6 verses of the golden calf there are 5777 letter nun’s of value 50, and thus symbolically and spiritually related to the 50-year jubilee period.

As the Zohar explains, the thousands are found in YHVH, and jubilee is Binah.  And the aspect of the YHVH that corresponds to Binah is Sag (YVD HY VEV HY). The 3 Yuds (YYY) at this level each have a value of 10 and when multiplied together form 10 x 10 x10 =1000.

And since there are 600,000 component letters in the Torah, the 5 component and composite yuds in YHVH similarly form 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 = 100,000. To understand this you must see the two letters Hey (H) as their component dalet-yud’s 2 x (DY) and combine them with the letters vav (VV) to form yud (YVD) and yud (YVD). You then add the Yud (Y) of YHVH and the two component yuds (Y) from the Heys, and you get the 5 total yuds in the YHVH at the level of Malchut (Ban), which is the level that the 600,000 souls fell back to when it was decreed they needed to restart the correction process.

Okay, so maybe it was 408 souls that ascended to Keter, or 4 x 102, the numerical value of emunah (faith). And maybe that makes sense since 408 = 407 + 1 (Moses) and the square root of 407 = 20.17424, considering that 424 is the value of Mashiach Ben David and 2017 CE is the year 5777.

But considering 620 is the value of Keter and there were 620 letters in the 10 Commandments, why not 620 souls?

Why not? We do know though that 620-408 = 202, as in verse 20:2 where the 10 Commandments and the 22,000-letters began. Perhaps this had something to do with it. Who knows?

And since everything to do with the special set of 22,000 letters, the embedded gift within the Bible, has to do with 10 and the power of 10, perhaps it has something to do with 408 x 6 being equal to 2448 and also that the square root of ((600,000 – 408) x 10 ) also equals 2448 .

Let’s not forget that it was the year 2448 when the 2nd Tree-of-life opportunity, the 10 Commandments, occurred, and that that is 66.6 jubilee years before 5778.

Could it be for that reason that the Hebrew letters break down into 50 component letters, representing the Jubilee period, and that because of this they form the 600,000 – 408 equations. After all, G-d was pretty emphatic that we count the Jubilee years.

To be continued shortly with Part IX.

The previous installments of The Ten Commandments are here.

When Will We Reach Keter for the 3rd Time? Simple Gematria Provides the Answer.

Keter is the summit of true reality, the point where all the veils and illusions have been drawn back and the light of Hashem shines unfiltered. It’s where we and He are One.

The first time man stood in the light of keter (the crowning sefirot/dimension), the highest level of existence, spiritual and otherwise, attainable was before the original sin in the Garden of Eden.

The second time was 2448 years later when the Ten Commandments were given. But on the 39th day the golden calf was created and we fell for the 2nd time, all the way back to square one.

There are 42 letters in the spelling of the names of the sefirot, corresponding with the 42 paths of the Tree-of-life, which R’ Chaim Vital of blessed memory connects with the 42-letter Name.  The name Keter (CTR) comprises the uppermost 3 letters of the 42, meaning that because the Israelites couldn’t wait 1 more day–actually just the last 6 hours of that day–for Moses to return as promised, they paused at the gates of Keter (CTR) and as we know it all game crashing down, everything shattering along with the 2 tablets.

And the third time?

Since the ancient kabbalistic science of gematria reads the energy levels in the letters, which allows us so see the words and names for what they really represent at their source, let’s look at the spelling of Keter (CTR), whose simple gematria is C (20) + T (400) + R (200) = 620, as in the 620 letter in the 10 Commandments.

So 3 Keters (CTR) would be 3 x 620 or 1860.

The Tikunei Zohar explains that the light in the ineffable Name of G-d, the YHVH get expanded through squaring, which coincides with R’ Chaim Vital’s comment that all Torah light is spread through squaring. As the Zohar illustrates, Y (10) + H(5) + V(6) + H(5) gets squared like this: 102 + 52 + 62+ 52 = 186.

And as we can see, 3 Keters = 10 x (YHVH) squared, or simply 1860 = 10 x 186. Thus the equation illustrates that the light of the YHVH spread fully throughout the 10 sefirot (dimensions) will be achievable with the 3rd Keter.

The first two times we reached Keter, were thus untenable as they were incomplete and the unbalanced light was too powerful.

But when will that be?

We need to turn to the much revealing complete gematria for that.  The complete gematria combines the standard numerical value of a word or phrase with its ordinal value (the placement of the letters within the alef-bet). And as it happens the ordinal value of Keter (CTR) is C(11) + T(22) + R(20) = 53.

Before we put it all together lets examine that a little closer. After all, it is a very important name. the ordinal vaue of Caf(C) is 11, signifying the 11 sefirot when Da’at (the reservoir of knowledge) is included (as it must be) , and the letters Taf(T) and Resh(R) together = 42, as in the 42 letters in the names of the 11 sefirot.

When all 3 letters (CTR) are added together, they total 53, as in the value of the word Gan, representing the first instance of our Keter, Gan Eden (the Garden of Eden). Nevertheless, the 3 Keters would then be 3 x 53 = 159.

And 159 is the small gematria value of the Upper 42 Letters of the Name of G-d, which is the YHVH expanded 3 times by spelling out the individual letters.

Now, adding the standard value (1860) to the ordinal value (159) for the 3 Keters gives us 1860 + 159 = 2019.

And as it so happens the year 2019, coincides with Rav Ashlag’s The Divine Calendarpredictions and all the prophecies about the date for the geula (final redemption) and thus the opening of the third Tree-of-life window in 5778 (2018) and it’s sealing in 2019.  (See Nothing is Random for more details and scientific evidence).

With the kolel of 1, the year 2019 could easily be 2018, but as understood within Nothing is Random there is a definitive separation in the time-spatial continuum that is occur marked by the separation between the dates 2018 and 2019. Indeed, the Tikunei Zohar makes the point of telling us that the word Makom (place/space), as in the place where Jacob rested his head and had the famous dream of the angels rising and descending, has the numerical value 186 directly because of the squaring of the letters in the YHVH.

Ezekiel 3:12
“בָּרוּךְ כְּבוֹד-יְהוָה, מִמְּקוֹמוֹ”
“Blessed be the glory of YHVH from His place”
‘Place’ is מקום.  His place is also Keter, and in spirituality distance is time, so His place as it connects with our world becomes a time frame as well.

2018 is the so-called end of days, and 2019 is the beginning.

Let’s recap a bit.

10 x YHVH2 + the 3 expansions of YHVH = 2019

= Keter x 3

When the Light of the YHVH spreads completely throughout the 42 Pathways of the Sefirot, we will be at the 3rd Keter.

How do we know that 2019 is actually 2019 ce and not 2019 HC? After all, the Covenant of Abraham, the great and glorious time was promised, occurred in 2018 CE.

Because when we spell out the name Keter (CTR) as Caf-Tav-Resh (CP-TV-RYSh), its ordinal value is 107 and the sum of the integers (1+2+3+..107) = 5778 (2018 CE).

Moreover the complete gematria sofit value plus the kolel of the spelled out Keter (CP-TV-RYSh) is 1860 once again, or 3 x 620 (CTR). It’s Perfect!

Would you expect anything less perfect, at the level of keter, the dimension of pure perfection?

So then, why 3 letters in Keter, and why 3 Keters?

Because as the Zohar and the Kabbalists explain, the Tree-of-life is a 3 column structure (system). The ill-fated Gan Eden Keter headed up the right column. The short lived 10 Commandments Keter headed up the left column. And the only one which could really last, will be the balanced central column one that will soon form and be sealed in place in 2019 CE, B’H.

The 3rd window will open soon and the question will be not whether the Light is ready to receive us, but whether we’re   ready for the Light.

The Ten Commandments Part VII: Adam, Noach, Moses and the End of Days

…Continued from The Ten Commandments

Our last article was about straightening out the 5 portion, 22,000 letter, section of the Torah’s time line concerning the giving of the Ten Commandments,  the incident of the golden calf, and the two times Moses brought down the 2 Tablets. In this article, we”ll begin tying it all together.

Adam, Noach, Moses and the End of Days

As we said the people saw to it that the Tree-of-life conscious never  took root. But what did happen, though, was that G-d had to start all over again with these people. In paragraph 125, Exodus 32:9-10 “G-d then said to Moses, “I have observed the people and they are an unbending (stiff-neck) group. Now do not try to stop me when I unleash my wrath against them to destroy them. I will then make you into a great nation.”

Here is a deep secret: The words “great nation” L’Goy Gadol (LGVY GDVL) permute into Yud Gilgul (YVD GLGVL), “10 reincarnations, “one for each of the 10 Commandments.

Could it be that the Torah is hinting to us that Moses (H’Moshiach) will reincarnate 10 times?

Moses could have chosen to be like Noach, the 10th generation from Adam and preside over a new beginning, but Moses was the 26th generation of Adam, connected to the YHVH of value 26.

This connection between Noach and Moses is more than casual. G-d’s wrath was revealed to Moses in paragraph 125 of Exodus and to Noach in paragraph 25, when in Genesis 6:13 “God said to Noach, ‘The end of all flesh has come before me. The world is filled with crime. I will therefore destroy them with the earth’.” It was only a few verses earlier when in Genesis 6:3 “God said, ‘My spirit will not continue to judge man forever, since he is nothing but flesh. His days shall be 120 years’.” The word flesh (BShR) is found 58 times in the Torah, the same as the numerical value of Noach.

And who lived for 120 years? Moses did.  Moreover, the Torah mentions no one else who lived for 120 years to fulfill G-d’s statement. And lets not forget that Noach had to endure for 40 days and 40 night immersed in water to cleanse mankind and the earth, and Moses also 40 days and 40 nights immersed in the clouds on Sinai to do the same.

The Torah is drawing these parallels for a reason. G-d gave us the 120 years of Moses (H’Mashiach) in flesh. Bnei Noach (BNY NCh) also has the value of 120, so it’s not surprising that G-d’s announcement about his wrath was found in Genesis 6:13, which hints at the 613 precepts that Moses would bring, and if you add the 7 Noahide precepts, we get 613 + 7 = 620, keter, a relationship many a sage has pointed out in relation to the 620 letters of the 10 Commandments.

This is all evidence as well in that the yud Gilgul (10 reincarnations or 10 revolvings) also refer to the 10 generations from Adam to Noach.

Furthermore, each of the 28 generations from 2448, when the Ten Commandments were given, to 5778 (2018 ce), the date prophesied for Moshiach lasted 120 years, while the first 26 generations through Moses lasted 93 years each on average. What this means is that the 54 generations from Adam to Moshiach lasted an average of 107 years, and since the sum of the integers from 1 to 107 = 5778, it all makes perfect sense. Spiritually, it always did.

26 + 28 = 54 generations

(26 x 93) + (28 x 120) = 54 x 107 = 5778 years

Please note that it is 91.0 years.generation for the 26 generations until Moses birth. The average is exactly 93 years, when Moses life is split into 70 years and his last 50 years or 58 and 42% respectively, in line with the Noach (58) connection, and the  not coincidental significance of the 42-Letter Name (necessary for the geula), the final 70 year period from Israeli Statehood in 5708 to 5778, and the 50-year jubilee period.

But the most significant parallel to draw from this Moshe(MShH)-Noach (NCh) connection is the correction of the snake (nachash, NChSh) and Adam/Man (EDM). When we combine the letters in their 2 names (MShH-NCh) they permute to NChSh, which is Nachash, snake and mah (MH), which has the same numerical value as Adam (45) and, according to the Zohar, it is also the aspect of the G-d’s name (YVD HE VEV HE) that is called M’H of value 45, and which represents both Man (ADM) and the 6 sefirot of Zeir Anpin.

And because nachash has the numerical value of 358, this correction will brings us Mashiach (358). Moreover, 45 is also the gematria of Geula (GEVLH), the final redemption.  So while the price paid was high, in the end we’ll get the Messiah and the final redemption.

Nevertheless, it also warns us what we have to overcome for Moses (Mashiach) to come again and bring the geula. The snake always finds a way, different every time, to work his way in and make us lose our focus.

Adam blew the opportunity to stay in the Tree-of-life reality, and 1658 years and 10 generations later, the Flood waters covered the earth, and we began anew. In 2448, we blew the opportunity once again. Thus we were given 66.6 jubilee years and/or 10 incarnations to reincarnate in flesh to find the means to summon the Tree-of-life back into our lives.

The phrase “End of days” found in the Zohar Trumah 143, is in Hebrew “Ketz H’Yamim (KZ HYMYM)“. It has the sofit gematria value of 1665, and if we take away the kolel of the 7 letters we get 1658, the year of the Flood, and if we add 1 instead for the kolel we get 1666, the year the generation of Shabtai Tzvi thought Moshiach was coming. But we also get 666, the numerical value of “the days,” and 1000 for “End.”

The end is the beginning since alef (ELP), the first letter, is also teh word elef, “one thousand (1000),” a concept that keeps coming up in spirituality and in many of our blogs.  It’s pure gematria-the observance and measure of similarity of form. Just like the geula and Adam having the same gematria.

Have doubts about the Adam-Noach-Moshe connection?

Please note then that Moses passed on after 120 years in 2488, just before the Israelites entered the Promised Land and Noach’s Flood occurred in 1658. The relationship between them gives us

1658/2488 = .666.

The flood occurred .666 of the way from Adam to Moshe’s death in the flesh.

Also 2488/5778 = 430, as in the 430 years from the Covenant with Abraham in 2018 to 2448 when the 10 Commandments were issued, which again comes full circle as 2018 CE = 5778 HC. And just to top it off, a circle has 360 degrees and 1658 + 360 = 2018.

To be continued shortly with Part VIII.

The previous installments of The Ten Commandments are here.

Ten Commandments VI; Making Sense of The Torah’s Mixed Up Time Line.

…Continued from The Ten Commandments

What is going on?

Our last blog was about the split that happened at “The 10 Utterances,” which we showed beyond doubt to connect to Creation, the Torah’s first verse, the Torah in its entirety, to the tree-of-life, to the 42-Letter Name, and to Moshiach.

When we last left the Israelites at the 10 Utterances (Commandments), they were at keter, the highest point of ascension possible.

They were immersed in the 620 letters and the 62 Yuds (Y) of the 10 Utterances found at the 20th chapter in Exodus with the number 20, esrim, having a gematria value of 620, that same as Keter, the “crown”. And while the letter yud (Y) has the value 10, and can substitute for the 10 in the 10 utterances, when it’s spelled out, (Y-V-D), it has the value 20, esrim and thus Keter again.

The ascending Israelites were past the aspect of G-d called Elohim, which was reflected in the 62 Elohims present in the Torah through the 10 generations of Adam. They were in the letter yud (Y) of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) and ready to enter the tip of the Yud, which we know from the Arizal is Keter, the dimension where the self is reduced to virtually nothing and where we rejoin G-d in the whole, the oneness.

In terms of the Torah organization, the Israelites and the event of the offering of the 10 Commandments were at chapter 20 in parsha Yitro of Shmot, paragraphs 54-62. Yitro (YTRV), Moses’ father-in-law, has the value 616, the same as H’Torah (the Torah), which when added to the kolel of its 4 letters gives us 616 +4 = 620, Keter once again, the crowning, highest sefira (dimension).

And 54, once again and as explained in the previous articles connects us to the year 5778, when the tzaddikim have advised us Mashiach and the geula (final redemption) will come again, 66.6 jubilee years after the giving of the 10 Commandments in 2448 HC.

So what do we mean by come again?

And what happened, seeing as they were already at such a high place 66.6 jubilee (3330) years ago?

The second question almost answers the first, but we’ll give the full answer after we straighten out the seemingly incongruoustime-line of the 5 portions, Yitro, Mishpatim, Terumah, Tetzaveh, and Ki Thisa; from Exodus 20 – 34, encompassing paragraphs 54 to 130, from the 10 Utterances to the second set of Tablets.

Just to put that into perspective, that span of the 5 portions with 22 letters in their combined names is exactly 22,000 letters, 5788 words, 441 verses, 77 paragraphs and 15 chapters long. And while, yes, the fact that 5788 = 5778 + 10 (Commandments); and that 441 is the gematria of Emet, truth, a synonym for Torah, the Tree-of-life and the 42-letter Name; and that 22,000 letters is exactly the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet, 22 x 10,000; and that 77 is the numerical value of mazal wedged into the middle of 5778, are all compelling reasons to assume this section of 15 chapters is very special, there are other reasons as well.

For instance, the total gematria of those 22,000 letters is 1733324 or 299.99 x 5778, off by a minuscule (0.0044%) percent from exactly 300 x 5778, and moreover, when we divide 1733324 by 26, the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) we get 1733324/26 = 66666.308.

HMM!

Now, all that is certainly astonishing, and awe-inspiring in its precision and in the detailed planning that went into specifically organizing these specific 5 portions so that their combined encoding and energy dictates their profound interaction. First, the 42-letter Name is prescribed here by it small gematria value of 173. Next the year 5778 prophesied by the tzaddikim for the arrival of the Moshiach (Messiah) and the geula (final redemption) is hinted several times, including by the starting letter of the 10 Commandments, # 107007 in the Torah (note 54 x 107 = 5778). Then the number 666 so prominent in the calculation of 5778, etc is prescribed. And finally the 22 letters of the alef-bet; and the value of the Tetragramamton (YHVH), 26, is utilized as well.

Nevertheless, the Torah goes even further to strengthen this connection for us. In analyzing the 22,000 letters, we see that many of them reoccur very specific and significant number of times. Now, it would be natural for one of them to, even for two of them, but of the 22 letters, at least 7 of them do: the letter bet (B) reoccurs 1024, the number of different word values in the entire Torah, and as we discussed in our last article 1024= 322, the tree-of-life squared; both the letter gimmel (G) and the letter tet (Tt) each reoccur 137 times, as in the numerical value of Kabbalah, meaning “to receive” and “parallel,” and as in the age of the universe, 13.7 billion years; and the letter zayin (Tz) reoccurs 204 times, as in the value of tzaddik; and the letter chet (Ch) reoccurs 616 times as in H’Torah, and as in the number of times Moses exact name (MShH) is mentioned in the Torah, and also as in the numerical value of Yitro(YTRV), the first of the 5 portions; and while Pe(P) reoccurs 358 times, as in the value of Mashiach, the final letter Pe sofit reoccurs 42 times; and the letter Ayin (A) reoccurs 954 times, as in digit #954 in Pi where we find the final of the three 5778‘s (please see There’s Nothing Random in the Universe for an explanation as to why this is significant for us).

It’s obvious that in these 5 portions, where we’re receiving the 10 Commandments, the 2 tablets twice, the laws of reincarnation (in Mishpatim), the instructions for building the Tabernacle, the Temple accouterments, and the vestments of the Cohenim, that they all have a reason for us to study them beyond the obvious. But to do that, we must untangle them first, especially the timing of the events, including when and to who G-d is speaking.

Another letter, the 8th to have significance for us (this time only in this context) is the letter hey( H) of numerical value 5, found 2060 times within the 22000 letters of the 5 portions. In the middle of the first of those portions, in the 5th verse of the 10 Utterances, at Exodus 20:6, G-d advises that his love will go to those deserved for thousands of generations (eternity/immortality), but the sins of the fathers will pass on for 3 or 4 generations.

Here is where the choice was officially offered.

The choice given to the Israelites was the same as that given to Adam 2448 years earlier: to choose between the immortality of the Tree-of-life reality, or the cycle of reincarnation, the cause and effect relationship of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Adam through Eve was persuaded by the snake to choose wrong. The Israelites were persuaded by the erev rav (mixed multitude) to choose wrong as well.

This is not surprising as the gematria value of erev rav (ARB RB) is 474, the same as Da’at, knowledge, and that of Snake (NChSh) is the same as Mashiach, so it’s easy to see how they were tricked. This is also why there are legends that say that many of us will be tricked in these days as well.

It didn’t take much to persuade them. You know that from your own experiences. A little deceit, a little temptation, rationalization, and bam, we’ve fallen yet again, daily for most of us. But Adam, Eve, the Israelites, they had the miracles right there in front of them, direct from the source, no misunderstandings.  And they fell just as quickly as we do, only they fell from the top of the mountain, and we’re still at base camp.

By Exodus 20:15, the people showed where their hearts and minds were at: After hearing and seeing the 10 Utterances, the people trembled, kept their distance, and they said to Moses in Exodus 20:16, “You speak to us, and we will listen, but let God not speak with us anymore, for we will die if he does.”

In their own words they chose death. G-d let it be Pharaoh’s words that brought about the death of the first born, and the people back then chose their fate with their own words as well.

This is why chazal warned us to always choose our words wisely and use them sparingly.

According to the Zohar, the words in Moses’ mouth were like a sword, especially when he recited the Shem Mem-Bet (42-Letter Name). They are like swords in our mouths as well, double-edged ones. It’s designed that way as part of the knowledge of Good and Evil, whereby we are our own judges. What comes out of our lips comes right back at us from another direction, as if time and space were warped (just as they are in the spiritual realm. And this is exactly why the Torah warns us to love our neighbors as ourselves.

Then after Moses implores them not to be afraid, in Exodus 20:18, when the Covenant of Abraham, which was given in 2018, 430 years earlier, was supposed to be fulfilled, the Torah repeats, “The people kept their distance while Moses entered the mist where God was.”

“The people kept their distance”

That was it. In Exodus 20:18, G-d fulfilled his promise with Moses that he made with Abraham in 2018. This is the last verse of paragraph 64, the numerical value of Din (DYN), judgment.  Now we wait until 2018 ce.

Synopsis of the next 4 Portions

From here on out G-d is speaking only to Moses, until in Exodus 24:1 G-d tells Moses go up to G-d and to bring the 70 elders, Aaron–the only names in the Torah associated with the word Moshiach–and his sons Nadav and Avihu, who we know from the Zohar and the Arizal would reincarnate into Pinchas and then into Eliyahu Hanavi (Elijah the Prophet), who we are told by chazal will usher in the arrival of H’Mashiach. Still, they were instructed to bow down and keep their distance.

Then in Exodus 24:3 “Moses told the people “All of God’s words and ALL of the laws.” And in Exodus 24:4 “Moses wrote down ALL of God’s words.”

Then after Moses, Aaron, his two sons and the 70 elders made the Covenant of sacrifices they received a vision, at which point in Exodus 24:12 G-d summons Moses up to the Mountain to give him the stone tablets. After six days, G-d called to Moses from the midst of the Cloud on the seventh day. In Exodus 24:17, we learned Moses was to remain on the Mountain 40 days and 40 nights.

G-d continues giving Moses instructions for 7 chapters up to the Sabbath instruction in paragraph 123, Exodus 31:12, and then in paragraph 124, Exodus 31:18, G-d gives Moses the 2 Tablets of the Testimony, written by G-d. Meanwhile, in Exodus chapter 32, we learn of the Golden calf (H’AGL), whose numerical value is 108 or 2 x 54. And in 32:19 Moses destroys the 2 Tablets that G-d had given him.

Then in Exodus 33:23, G-d grants Moses a vision of his presence (ET EChRY) of numerical value 620, that of Keter. This occurs just before G-d gives Moses instructions to carve out the second set of tablets–the first ones were G-d’s creation–and to climb Mt Sinai in Exodus 34:1 in paragraph 130, which happens to be the gematria value of Sinai.

In Exodus 34:6, G-d pronounces the 13 attributes and we are again told that his love will go to those deserved for thousands of generations (eternity/immortality), but the sins of the fathers will pass on for 3 or 4 generations. And in Exodus 34:10 G-d advises that He will make a Covenant before all Moses’ people. G-d once again dictated the laws to Moses and asked him to write them down, and once again Moses stayed with G-d for 40 days and 40 nights, then G-d wrote the words of the Covenant, the 10 Utterances on the two tablets. And Moses brought them to his people, his skin now luminous, his being from another dimension.

So Why Two?

Two (2) is primordially indicative of a split, a dichotomy, divergent and juxtaposed choices.

So why 2 Tablets; why 2 sets of Tablets, why going back up 2 times, each time for 40 days and 40 nights; and why were there 2 visions; and why does G-d tell us 2 times that He will be with those deserved for thousands of generations and that those not, will have self-inflicted punishment (rectification) for 3 or 4 generations.

And if Moses wrote down ALL of G-d’s words in Exodus 24:4, why did he have to write them down again later, twice (or 2 times).

And finally, the Golden calf incident, which ruined everything, happened in paragraph 124, which is 2 x 62, the chapter we were at in the 10 Commandments, when we were at Keter, 62 verses earlier.

2 Parallel Universes

It is because we’re witnessing 2 parallel universes that existed simultaneously until the 22,000-letter section ends at chapter 34, the 84th in the Torah.

As we know, 84, is the number that represents redemption (PD) and the fusion of the upper and lover 42-Letter Names.

It’s at chapter 34 that we official fall down from Keter and fall back down to earth/malchut, and begin anew the process of rectifying the shattered vessels of the second (2nd) world, the world of tikun (karma), a process that necessarily has to take 5778 years, as hinted at by the 5788 verses, which included the Yud of simple value 10 for the 10 Utterances.

This Yud is the separate universe given to Moses and the few that kept their doubts in check. This addition 10 is equivalent to .1730% of 5778, as in the 173 keys given to Moses and the small gematria of the 42-Letter Name.

Moses had just received the vision of G-d’s Presence and was now in keter, and couldn’t be with the people any longer, still it would take another 40 years before they realized he was no longer there. He had ascended, as had everyone else who had been ready.

How many? We don’t know, but it may be hinted at in the number of component letters in the Torah, which is 600,000-408 since we known from chazal that there are supposed to be 600,000 letters in the Torah and that there were 600,000 Israelites at Mt Sinai and furthermore that each of the Isralites souls have a letter in the Torah. That would seem to leave 408 Souls that have ascended to keter, or at least missing.

The first set of Tablets represented the world of Tohu v’Bohu, the first set of 10 Sefirot (dimensions) whose vessels overloaded and shattered because of a lack of interconnectedness. When the Israelites led by the erev rav feared, rather than embraced G-d’s words, their vessels could no longer hold the light and G-d had to destroy them, which is why Moses had to shatter the 10 Commandments on the 2 Tablets.

And if we ask how could Moses destroy G-d’s work, the answers lies in that the spiritual realms to which the Israelites and the Tablets were anchored had already been shattered; otherwise, Moses could have thrown them from the top of the mountain and they never would have broken.

But, G-d did make Moses responsible; G-d referred to them as the Tablets that you (Moses) broke. Moses chose to bring the erev rav with him and the consequences would last 66.6 jubilee years, many many generations (28 to be exact). The lesson here is that regardless of our closeness to G-d, regardless of G-d’s overall plans for us, and regardless of His immediate intentions for us, we are responsible for our actions.

We’ll continue shortly with Part VII concerning: Adam, Noach, Moses and the End of Days
