Do the 70 years End in 2009 or 2018?

We promised that we’d explain and highlight what the Zohar says will happen in the so-called “end of days” and we will soon. But first, we want to cover the timing again because some people seem be hung up on that, and doubts plays right into the hands of the evil inclination, distracting us. And I’m not referring to the comment we received regarding the 66.5 year period, which we’ll explain below.

For those awakening to the tree-of-life reality it will come in the appropriate moment, no matter what, and for those waiting for that moment to awaken themselves, the tree-of-knowledge reality that they are currently experiencing will continue and the date/moment will come and go unnoticed. Life will simply go on.

It is like someone who doesn’t celebrate Shavuot, if they don’t know it exists, the cosmic window and energy downloadable on it will come and go unseen–a missed by unnoticed opportunity. Or even someone who bought a lottery ticket, won, but never checked the numbers; they wanted hope, not help.

If you’re awake, you know you need help and also need to help yourself (spiritually). The idea is to prepare ourselves now, and thus tune our consciousness into receiving the tree-of-life reality when it comes.

That said, we want to hopefully clear up some of the confusion of the timing for the geula (final redemption) and according to the Zohar it is supposed to come in stages, but since G-d isn’t going to drop flyers from the sky advising when they’ve come and gone, people are looking for the exact timing of them. Unfortunately, if we get hung up on the timing rather than on our personal transformation, we won’t be in a spiritual place to see/feel the changing of the stages and thus will be opening ourselves up to our old scourge Amelak (analogous to doubt).

From the Ramchal’s Ma’amar Hageulah:

“It should be known, that the redemption has two appointed stages. We find this in the redemption from Egypt and in the redemption from Babylon, and it is known to us that it will be so in the future…. Regarding these two appointed times…the first stage…is called ‘safeguarding’ (Pekidah)…the second stage…is called ‘recollection’ (zechirah).”

Now, in assigning dates to this, some people are using the portion of the Zohar Parashat Vayera (1:119a) as reference:

“And I have remembered My covenant with Yaacov” (Vayikra 26). Yaacov is written here in its full form [with a Vav(V)]. Why?… This verse refers to Israel’s exile. When they are in the midst of that exile, they will be Recalled in the mystery of the Vav, in the 6th Millennium.”

This recall is what is often referred to as the Pekidah, a partial redemption, that is often associated with Moshiach Ben Yoseph. Now, this is interesting because as I’ve learned from my teacher, the time of Moshiach Ben Yoseph ended in 1973 and from then on battles would not be won by might but by love as in the energy of Moshaich Ben David. The Vav (V) referred to in the Zohar passage above is known to analogous to the Vav (V) of the Tetragramamton (YHVH) and most specifically to the Zeir Anpin aspect of the Tetragramamton, M”H (YVD HE VEV HE) which has the numerical value of 45. And if we add 45 years as hinted at by the Zohar to 1973 we get 2018 or 5778, when Rav Ashlag (HaSulam) and the Tzaddikim have advised us the geula would come (See the Divine Calendar for details).

This Zohar scction continues: “This Recollection [Pekidah] will take place in the mystery of Vav-Aleph-Vav [as explained above, the spelled out letter Vav. It will last for a period of 6 1/2 moments. after 60 years of the 6th Millennium have passed.”

So let’s look at this, some scholars calculate that the gematria of V-E-V is 13 and 6 ½ is half of 13, and since 13 is the numerical value of Ahava, love, this fits in nicely with what we’ve expressed above. But 60 years plus 6 moments (years) plus 6 months (half a moment/years) is equivalent to 66.6 and 66.6 jubilee years from the reception of the Torah at Sinai and the first opportunity for the geula in 2448 is also 5778.

Nevertheless, if we take it as 66.5 years as many people do, we see that 66.5 years after Israel became a nation is exactly 42 months prior to 5778, bringing up the relationship between the understanding of the 42-Letter Name and the time frame of Moshiach and the geula that the tzaddikim have stated will coincide.

The Zohar passage continues: “…At that time, the G-d of Heaven will arise to Recall [Pekidah] the Daughter of Jacob [the Shechinah and the Nation of Israel].”

Does this refer to the birth of the nation of Israel in 1948 (5708)?

“From that time [of Pekidah] till Zechirah [full Remembrance, full Redemption, Mashiach ben David], 6 1/2 years will pass. After that, another 6 years will pass.”

Some total this as 12 ½ years, but knowing how fluid expressions of time are in Kabbalah 6 1/2 plus 6 could easily refer to the “moments” described above and thus 6 equals half a moment and there would be a total of 7 moments or 7 decades, and 7 decades hence from the birth of Israel is 5778 (2018 CE).

The passage concludes: “…At that time, all the nations shall unite together against the Daughter of Jacob in order to annihilate her from the world. Concerning that time it is written, “It will be a time of crisis for Jacob, but he shall be saved from it” (Jeremiah 30:7).

With Obama’s stance and speech before the pyramids of Egypt is there much doubt that this could easily happen in the term of our 45th President, which is at the end of the Vav of Jacob, of gematria value 45 as discussed above?

Right now, he is the 44th President, and as we’ve discussed in several articles, 44 corresponds to the ordinal value of the initials of the 10 plagues (whose standard gematria value is 541, that of Israel) and also to the value of the first plague (Dam, blood), which were sent to awaken us 66.6 jubilee years ago.

In the Zohar Pinchas, section 733 in the Ra’aya Meheimna, dictated by the spirit of Moshe Rabbeinu, we learn that the rod that controlled the 10 plagues was the vav (V) of the YHVH and specifically the YVD HE VEV HE of numerical value 45, so it makes perfect sense that Barack Obama, the leader of the exiled world, would read from the Koran and address the Moslem world from the place of the plagues, making known to them how he feels about Israel.

This is not meant to be an indictment on our President or his policies; we’re only pointing out the cosmic synergies around the events.

Now, some have calculated, including R’ Elchonon Wasserman-” This time is called עקבתא דמשיחא – time…preparation for the time of the Mashiah. Then, he said it has to take 70 years. עקבתא דמשיחא has to take 70 years. Preparation for him has to be done…for 70 years”-that the 70-year period began with WW II and have come up with the year 2009. And as we know since this past Pesach of 2009, the energy of Moshiach has been upon us and more so with the arrival of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai on Lag B’omer (see the related articles for details), so in an sense they are correct too. And it’s interesting to note that 42 months from this past Shavuot 2009 is the infamous date of 12/21/2012 that so many people are waiting for. Again, playing into the hands of doubt when nothing more physical happens than the beginning of the final 6 years period as ordained by the Zohar.

Regarding R’ Elchonon Wasserman statement, someone posted anonymously that they heard the following in a speech by their Rabbi that “The Vilna Gaon writes that there are 70 words in לדוד מזמור למנצח, which talk about the Yidden davening to Hashem to help them at a time of despair, corresponds to the “70 years of chevlai mashiach.” These seventy years will immediately take place after a big change in Klal Yisroel. After seeing the devastation caused by World War I the Chofetz Chaim said that the 70 years began at that time. He based it on the fact that in Europe Klal Yisroel used to look up to Rav and made a concerted effort to emulate the great authorities in Klal Yisroel. They had greater level of התורה כבוד than nowadays. Unfortunately, after World War I that attitude changed. After seeing the much greater devastation of World War II, Rabbi Elchonon Wasserman commented that the 70 years indeed started from World War II.”

So whether that began when WWII began or when it ended with the birth of Israel is open to interpretation to some and as we’ve seen both are correct in their own way, yet only 70 years hence from the birth of Israel coincides with the year 2018 CE, which in turn coincides with G-d’s Covenant with Abraham in 2018 HC, the “Covenant of Halves.”

Whenever we believe the force of Moshiach to manifest itself in our physical world, we must prepare ourselves now. Only in that way will we able to not only receive it, but perceive it.

Shabbat Shalom



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 70th verse in the Torah that G-d punished the snake and told him that he’ll eat dust for all the days in his life, meaning that his life was finite. And perhaps its end will be found at 70 years. It was after 70 years of Abraham’s life that G-d made his Covenant with him in 2018 (HC), which is analogs to 2018 CE or 5778 HC again.

The verse that G-d punished the snake for his part in separating man from the tree-0f-life reality was verse Bereshit 3:14, and as we’ve explained in other articles and in The Genesis Prayer, when we divide the number 9 by the small gematria of the 42-letter Name of G-d we get:

9/.123049.. =73.1415777

which is 70 + 3.14… or 70 + Pi

And thus we can see how the 42-Letter Name (Ana B’koach) is integrally connected to this verse, as it is to the first verse of the Torah, and according to the tzaddikim to the geula and Moshiach in 5777-5778.

Now it just so happens that 73.1415778 = 2 x 36.5708 and while 5708 is the year Israel became a nation, 36 is one more than 35, which was the square root of the total counting of the Omer (1..50=1225).

Now while the sum of the integers through 73 is the exact gematria of the Torah’s first verse (2701), the sum of the integers through 36 is 666, as in the 66.6 jubilee years from 2448, when the Israelites last stood in unity to receive the Torah and the year 5778.

The hints given to us tell us that by being unified and by utilizing the 42-Letter Name of G-d we can not only count down the last 9 years to the geula but also to the last years of the life of the snake. So when G-d spoke to the snake in Bereshit 3:14, using the same language He uses to speak to Moses, He was considering the period afterward, when the snake (Nachash) of gematria 358 would be no more and Moshiach (also 358) would reign over our consciousness instead.

This weeks portion was also about the counting of the people, who numbered 603,550 and while that is 600,000 plus 3550 or 600,000 plu2 x 1775, which is the value of the 27 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet, the 600,000 Israelites that were at Sinai at the time of the reception of the Torah were descended from the 70 family members accompanying Jacob into Egypt and as the Arizal explains the 600,000 souls came from the 70 members, from the 12 sons from the 3 patriarchs from Adam and

600000/70/12/3 = 238.095 = exactly 1/42

And so the unification of the soul reverts back through the 42-Letter Name as it was in the very beginning.

But what makes this so much more necessary now is that 238.095 = exactly the atomic weight of Uranium 238 and as we are all well aware Iran is arming themselves this year with nuclear weapons, North Korea with more testing, and Pakistan with the Taliban only a few miles and a couple political or military blunders away from taking control of their arsenal.

We need to come together now and seek out Moshiach as One.

And please note that while the total numbers of letters in the Torah is compositely 600,000-408, it is visibly 304,805 and 304805 x .666 = 203,000.13. and while 203 is the gematria of the word Boreh (to create) it’s also the first 3 letters in the Torah of BEReshit, but for us on Shavuot, what it means is that we can tap into creation through the 7th line of the Ana B’koach, where we find the Shin, Vav and Tav of ShBVAVT, and where the gematria of the two triplets gives us 500 x 406 = 203,000, and the remaining letters add up to 78, as in the initials of Etz Chaim, the Tree-of-life in the year 5778.

Please use your time on Shavuot to bring about unity and awe of Hashem and please use the videos attached to help you connect to the 42-letter Name.

Please note, these are just the words sung, not the actual mediations, which we hope we can all do together one of these days soon, many of which can be found in The Genesis Prayer and some others throughout this site.

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 the jubilee years (50 year interval) until the arrival of Mashiach, and there are exactly 66.6 jubilee years from the reception of the Torah in 2448 and 5778.

So as we count the last few days before the great revelation of light on Shavuot, when we once again receive the Torah, let’s keep our kavanot (focus) on removing all the negativity, blockages, aspects of death and judgment in our lives and in our souls that would prevent the revelation of Moshiach in our world. And remember (see previously articles on the Omer), the energy and spirit of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai is still with us to help us in our task.

By the way, the 44th day of the Omer is Rosh Chodesh Sivan.

Shabbat Shalom

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,


From the Daily Zohar #8:

Those that keep the sign, אות (means also letter), of the covenant, ברית (word= מילה ) , (also means circumcision), on the eighth day and also keep the Shabbat in its time, which is two thousands Ama (Ama is a measuring unit) in each direction and to four sides equal to eight thousands. The sign of the covenant and the sign of Shabbat are the two Yods form the unification name of upper and lower Y-A-H-D-V-N-H-Y, יאהדונהי.

This was explained before that every person found within the two signs and on them it was said, “You shall not take the Mother form the sons..”

If you ask why a person need both signs, and the answer is because the Shechina that is the Yod from אדני ADNY can not be here without the Holy One, Bless be He, that is the Yod of YHVH. A man should be careful every day to keep this unification. Weekday with the Tefillin and Shabbat.

Shabbat is the female and the sign of the covenant, which is the male of Zeir Anpin, letter Vav of the name.

The explanation is that before creation, the Endless Light filled up all existence and there was no place to create new. There was no beginning or end. When the creator desired to emanate new emanations and create the worlds, he restricted his light from a middle point, which is Malchut and the energy of judgment revealed itself as a result of this restriction. The light distant itself from this point and a void was made. Inside this void all the worlds were created.

A line from the Endless came down into the void, the vessel, to sustain it. The light in the judgement level is אדני and supernal light is יֿ+ה+ו+ה , The two letter י represent the two aspects of Light that we need to keep connecting with actions that continues the Light. Maintain the connection using spiritual tools and act of sharing, giving in all of their aspects.

On those that don’t keep the connection it said “You shall send away the mother”. They lose the connection to the upper levels and can’t be called sons.
