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,

Ezra

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.

The Final 70 Years

As we begin to study the Tikkunei Zohar together with its 70 tikunim for the 70 final years that coincide with the 70 years from Israel’s formation in 1948 to 2018, we’d like to note a cryptic reference to this back in Shmot (Exodus).

In Shmot 4:22, G-d had just advised Moses that he will make Pharaoh obstinate so that he will not let the people leave. “You must say to Pharaoh, ‘This is what God says: Israel is MY son, My firstborn’.” This, as the Torah explains, was a warning and prelude to the killing of Pharaoh’s first born.

This confrontation seems more about a dual between Satan (the evil inclination) and G-d, than about a battle with a man. Pharaoh, the man, was ready to let them leave, so G-d replaced him with who/what he really wanted to vanquish, the evil and selfish desires in our hearts.

To understand what is being released, we need the help of the Zohar, in the Idra Zuta portion #88, where it tells us that this specific firstborn is referring to the sefira of Da’at, the commingling of Chochma and Binah (Aba and Ima) from which Moses and Zeir Anpin emanated and which we’ve previously associated with the number 70 in our articles on the 70 times the Torah’s most numerous phrase “And G-d spoke to Moses, saying” occurred.

The Idra Zuta, though, is talking about the end of days, not the Exodus from Egypt, so it’s drawing a parallel for us that can be understood when we realize that the 422 in Shmot 4:22 is the gematria of the word seventy (70).

So G-d is giving Israel 70 years of life, as he did David, whose life marks the exact halfway between Adam and 5778 (2018 CE). he’s also giving our evil inclinations 70 years to release Israel, his first born. And “first born” (BCRY) by the way has the gematria of 232, as in the 4 aspects of the Tetragrammaton, the holy sparks that G-d wants released.

While the Torah speaks to us personally, it also speaks to us as a community and so we must come together to defeat our evil inclinations and be released to claim our birthrights as first born.

The full gematria of that verse is 2160 or 10 x 216 (gevura, the sefira of judgment) and thus it hinted at the 10 judgments that would come to wake up the Israelites and separate them from the darkness (also known as Mizra’im, Egypt).

Then in 4:24, it says G-d wanted to kill Moses. 424 is the gematria of Moshiach Ben David, so it goes to show how far G-d would go to achieve this release and retrieve his Holy sparks.

Right Place, Right Time

Just a quick note to let you all know that you are in the right place at the right time. If you have been counting the Omer, you’ve been using one of David’s Psalms in the shape of a menora and counting one word each day and one letter of its central column each day. Today is the 33rd day. In another blog we’ll reveal why certain of the days have extra special energy, notably the 8th, 25th, 33rd and 49th days, but today, is L’ag B’Omer, the gematria of which is 358, that of Mashiach, when the kolel of the 7 letters is included. It is the hillula of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, who has a spark of Moses, who was an aspect of H’Moshiach.

The 33rd day of the Omer is kabbalistically hod of hod, or the 5th level (sefira) of the 5th level, and thus is related to the very center of the
counting, the 25th day or 5 x 5, 8 days earlier. And by the way it’s no coincidence that the first 8 words of the Torah have 33 words and a total value of 3003.

Here is what we can reveal today, the sum of the words/letters counted through the midpoint in the (through the 1st Mem in Yamim) counting is 5778 including the kolel for the 25 days and the sum of the square roots of those 25 words is 345, that of Moses. Remember 5778 is 9. or 3 x 3. years from now, 3330 years after the Torah was first received in 2448 HC. And as unconceivable as it is, up to that 25th word, the sum of the square roots of the 24 words is 333.078 or 3330 years and 78, as in the initials of Etz Chaim, the tree-of-life.

But what puts us in the right place at the right time is that the sum of the square roots of the 33 letters we counted through this evening is 220.095 or 5/12/2009, May 12th 2009, tonight. And the sum of the square roots of the sofit values of the same 33 letters is 256.44, the numerical value of Aaron, Moses’ brother and another aspect of Mashiach.

Today, the energy of Mashiach that was earned during 8 days of Pesach this year is being revealed to us and for us through Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai and was marked on a counting system invented thousands of years ago.

For once, we are in the right place at the right time. Let’s take full advantage of it and change the world. See you all soon on facebook.
