The Secret Message in the Hidden Columns

Last week we wrote about the the 6 hidden columns of the Torah as defined by chazal and as we exposed in the initials of the first 6 words of the Torah’s second Book, Shmot (Exodus) 1:1 and also in Bereshit (Genesis) 46:8. We showed how they connected to Ezekiel’s famous final redemption (end-of-days) vision and to the year Rav Ashlag gave us for the final redemption (geula) in 5778 (2018 ce). Now, we have more to reveal.

Exodus 1:1 and Genesis 46:8

ואלה שמות בני ישראל הבאים מצרימה “And these are the names of the sons of Israel who are coming into Egypt…”

The 6 initials of this phrase, the phrase that initiates the 210 years of exile in Egypt and the incubation of the Israelite soul in Goshen and the beginning of the fulfillment of G-d’s Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are the very same letters that appear at the head of the 6 of the 248 columns of the Torah that are not the letter Vav (V):


As we said previously, they spell out the phrase, B’YH ShMV, “In the Name of G-d (YH) and they have the numerical value of 363, that of H’Moshiach (The Messiah), and also of “Moses Lives (Moshe Chai)”. And as mentioned in prior articles, Goshen (GShNH) was chosen because of its energy which is revealed by it’s numerical value 358, that of Mashiach (Messiah).

Now, we can reveal that the ordinal value of those six secret and special initials is 57, while the ordinal value of the final letters (HTYLMH) of those six choice words 78. In other words, the six words that mark the beginning of the first exile, also mark the end of the 4th and last exile in 5778 (2018 ce).

Moreover, the complete value of those 6 special initials, 363 + 57, is 420, or 10 x the 42-Letter Name, which was spelled out buy the first two words VELH of numerical value 42 and Shmot (Names). Thus we’re given another clue to use the 42-Letter Name to help us exit our exile and bring about the Tree-of-Life. Indeed, chazal (the sages) has said that it is the understanding of this Name that will bring about the geula (final redemption).

Nevertheless, these special 6 words give up even more clues.  While the initials totaled 420, the final letters in simple gematria sofit totaled 1050, and thus the two together equate to 1470, or 10 times Joseph’s age, 147 years.  Furthermore when the ordinal value of those 12 initials and final letters is added to it’s simple value, their complete value with the kolel of 12 is 1560, or 10 x 156, the numerical value of Joseph (156).

So just as Joseph was the chariot that initiated the incubation period of the Israelite soul from the 12 brothers and the 70 family members to the 600,000, and the channel to draw down the sustenance or life force (shefa) to them, he will be our chariot and channel, and we must make him such by connecting to him.  We know from the Zohar and the Arizal that Joseph is Yesod, the link that funnels all the spiritual light into our world (Malchut). By connecting to him spiritually, we can open those channels and let the Tree-of-Life bloom in our world.

Later in this same portion we have 2 sets of always telling double words. The first set in Exodus 2:19 is DLH DLH when Moses drew water for Yitro’s daughters, and the second set is MShH MShH (Moses Moses). The numerical value of the first set is 78, while the ordinal value of the second set is 78 as well, together they would be 156, the gematria once again of Joseph.  As Rav Brandwein has explained 78 is the numerical value of the initials of Etz Chaim, the Tree-of-life.  But to being it all together, we should note that the ordinal value of double world DLH DLH is 42.

The complete value of both set of double words together is 888, but that’s for another article. Have a wonderful week.

  1. I am grateful for the reminder to stay connected to Joseph. Can you add some insight into the best
    way to stay connected?
