The Last 70 Years

We’ve often correlated the 70 years from the founding if the nation of Israel in 5708 (1948 CE) to the year the tzaddkim have predicted for the Moshiach and geula (final redemption) in 5778 (2018 CE) and have explained why 1000 different ways in The Divine Calendar and our articles. But here we find in the Introduction to the Tikunei Zohar, Hebrew Hasulam #222, written by Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai nearly 1900 years ago a similar reference to the final 70 years: “And this is the test that the Israelites will go through in the seventy years [70] of the last exile. Since a poor man is considered as dead and when his money or property is taken away from him, it is like they take is body and soul, as they are all at has the same weight. Whatever that he likes should be let go for the love to his master. At that time he connects to the word love אהבה, which is Bereshit, בראשית, and it is like the world was created for him.” Note, that Rabbi Shimon was writing this at the start of the last exile, which Rav Yedhua Halevi Ashlag determined to be 1948 years long, analogous to the birth date of Israel in 1948 CE and of Abraham in 1948 HC as explained in The Divine Calendar. And before we reveal what else the Zohar has to say about the days of Mashiach and the geula, let’s note the section of the Tikunei Zohar that contained the secret of the 70 years was 222 as in 6000 – 222 = 5778.

The Markets Paused for Shavuot

The financial markets keep aligning with the Jewish holidays. A couple days prior to Shavuot, we advised everyone to meditate on the last line of the Ana B’koach (the 42-Letter Name) as part of their Shavuot kavanot, and we explained why. שקו צית And we and others have pointed out for all of us that the numbers of the various (almost always the Dow) US stock exchanges have significant numerical alignments on the day of or erev (evening before) the holidays beginning with erev Rosh Hashanah 5769 when the Dow fell 777.77 pts. So is it also a coincidence that the last line of the 42-Letter name has the numerical value of 906 and the S & P closed at 906.13 on erev Shavuot? And, of course, 13 is the gematria of Ahava (love) and 613 is the number of Mitzvot (precepts) in the Torah that we receive on Shavuot. That was an encouraging sign for me, but I wanted to know if there was anything else, maybe with the Dow that happened on Shavuot. But my newspaper mysteriously wasn’t delivered on Shavuot and my newspaper the day before arrived soaking wet in the rain.  It kept me from being distracted, and after Shabbat I found the soaking wet paper that I’d set aside to dry and also found that the day before Shavuot 5769: The S & P fell 17.3 pts The Dow fell 173 pts, closing at 8300.0 The Nasdaq closed at 1731.08 173 is the small gematria value of the 42-Letter Name from which the entire Torah is derived. The Zohar tells us Moses received 173...

Shavuot

In 2 days it will be Shavuot and we’ll stay up all night to receive the Light of Immortality, the Light of Torah and Mashiach, and how much we receive will depend on where our heads are at, how much work we did to prepare our souls over Pesach and during the 49 days of the counting the Omer prior to Shavuot on the 50th day. During those 50 days we count and try to purify 50+49+48…levels or a total of 1225 levels, which is 35 squared. Last week, we finished reading the 3rd Book of the Torah, Vayikra, whose last two portions, usually read together, have 57-78 verses, as in the year 5778 prophesied by the tzaddikim for the arrival of the light of Moshiach in its entirety. The final two Books of the Torah have 70 verses, which is not only analogous to the 70 years from the birth of the nation of Israel in 5708 to 5778, but to the 70 years that Adam gave to David (midpoint of his life 70/2 = 35 in 2889 HC), whose life marked the midpoint from Adam to 5778. Now the 4th Book of the Torah, Numbers (Bamidbar), that we just started reading this week begins by telling us that the year is 2450, which just happens to be 2 x 1225, and the 70 remaining chapters in the Torah (after the 57-78 point is also 2 x 35. So why 70? We’ve answered that previously in terms of the sefira of Da’at and the 7 x 10 sub-sefirot of Zeir Anpin and Malchut, but it was in the...

The Omer, 44, and Israel

For some reason many Moshaich blogs are expecting something big to happen this Rosh Chodesh Sivan (Gemini), in 2 days time. This is just a quick note before Shabbat to let you know that we’re keeping all of you in mind. This weekend, the 44th day of the Omer will be upon us and we’ve written numerous times this past year about the relationship of the number 44 and the 10 plagues and Israel. For those that haven’t read it, at least you should know that the ordinal value of the initials of the 10 plagues adds up to 44, the numerical value of the first plague, Dam (blood) and that the sum of the standard gematria value of those same initials adds up to 541, that of Israel. Now, oddly enough, when we add up the gematria sofit value of the 44 letters in the central trunk of the menora that forms Psalm 67 that we count on each day through the 44th day of the Omer, they add up to 5708 exactly, the year Israel became a nation (1948 CE). And all 49 letters of the full Omer counting equal 5778 + 73, or the year the tzaddikim have prophesied for the manifestation of Moshiach plus the value of Chochma (wisdom). Moreover, if we add up the square roots of all values for all 49 words of Psalm 67 counted during the 49 days of the Omer (deducting 1 for the kolel of each day counted) they add up to 666.41, And as we previously discussed, the counting of the Omer is analogous to the counting of...

Sign of the Covenant

If you signed up for the Daily Zohar and I highly recommend that you do, then you would have received the translation below with its Aramaic counterpart in your in box this morning. I just want to point out a couple things concerning the sign of the covenant mentioned below that relate to our generation. The sign, אות has a gematria value of 407, just like the 6th word in the Torah ואת, and the square root of 407 is 20.17424 or graphically the year 2017 coupled with 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David. And if that is not enough of a sign, the full gematria value (standard, ordinal, and kolel for the 7 letters) of Sign of the Covenant, אות ברית, is 1109, whose square root is 33.30, as in the 3330 years (66.6 jubilee years) from 2448 to 5778, which begins in 2017, and ends in 2018, the same year in the Hebrew Calendar that G-d established his Covenant with Abraham. There is so much light in every word of Rabbi Shimon, who dictated these portions, (the Tikunei Zohar), that we’re translating and publishing for the first time ever, and while they all connect to the beginning, Bereshit, he said that they were for our generation, the one at the end of days. From the simple light shining forth from only two words that we elaborated on, you can see why and see the importance of connecting to it on a daily basis. Blessings to all, Ezra From the Daily Zohar #8: Those that keep the sign, אות (means also letter), of the covenant, ברית...

We Now Know Why We Count the Omer

If you’ve been reading our articles, you may feel like you’ve been collecting pieces of the giant cosmic puzzle, so here are few more key ones. For 3330 years we’ve counted the Omer, but for the first time we have a clear understanding as to why. The Key is in the Word “Counting!” The Key is in the word “Counting.” The Torah doesn’t command us to count many things, but it’s very clear about counting the 50 days of the Omer every year and about counting and keeping track of jubilee (Yovel) years every 50 years. The tzaddikim instructed us long ago how to count the Omer properly, counting the days one at a time: along the branches of the 49-word Psalm 67 in the shape of a menora, one word at a time; counting the 49-letter central trunk of that menora one letter at a time; and counting the 42-Letter Name of G-d (Ana B’Koach) one letter/word at a time, including the name of the angel comprised of the 6 letters of each of the 7 rows, making 49 letters or words to be counted in total for each of 49 (7 x7) days from the 2nd day of Pesach through the reception of the Torah on Shavuot, the 50th day. To the kabbalists, 50 always signifies Binah, the upper sefira (dimension) of Understanding, as in the 50 Gates of Binah, and the numerical value of Binah is 67, so it’s no coincidence that King David, wrote the divinely inspired Psalm 67 with 49 words. It’s also no coincidence that the midpoint in David’s life, 2889 HC, marks...
