All the Holy Sparks and Why it’s Taking So Long to Bring Moshiach.

ari-8mMost students of Kabbalah know that there are 288 Holy sparks, that we are supposed to recover from the physical (malchut) world of the klippot (negativity). These are the remnants of the shattered vessels of first universal structure, the world of Tohu. But what only a very few understand is that according to the Arizal, there are 288 Holy sparks per sefirot (dimension), which makes 288 times 10 (vessels) or 2880.

And when we add 9 for the kolel of the depth from Keter, we get 2889, which in years is the midpoint in the life King David, 2889 HC. Now, this would be meaningless except for two very important points, considering that the tzaddikim have pegged the year 5778 (2018 CE) for the arrival of Moshiach (messiah) consciousness and the final redemption (geula).

1.  When we count the jubilee years from Adam to the midpoint in David’s life, there are exactly 57.78 jubilee years. So regardless of Rav Ashlag’s computation based on 666 (2/3) or the 66.6 jubilee years from the reception of the Torah in 2448 HC until 5778, we have a simple connection to 5778 though the counting of the jubilee years.  And the connection ties back to Moshiach through the sages acronym of Adam, which is spelled with the initials of Adam-David-Moshiach.

2. Secondly, the midpoint in King David’s life is also the exact midpoint in the 5778 years from Adam to Moshiach in 5778.  Mathematically speaking this is necessarily so given jubilee years are 50 years long; nevertheless it was never given, except divinely that there would be precisely 57.78 jubilee years to that point.  It could just as easily have been 40 or 70 or any number of years.  It was entirely left up to fate, not math.

Moreover, the 57.78 jubilee years tie into the year the First Temple was destroyed in 3338 dccover3dHC in that 57.78 is the square root of 3338, but much more on that can be found in The Divine Calendar.

So back to the 2880 Holy sparks we are to rescue from the captivity of the klippot. It would appear as if we were given a time frame of 2 years per Holy spark, using the kolel as above that would take us to 5778 instead of 5760. And according to some of the tzaddikim the year 5760 including hints form Rav Abraham Azulai of blessed memory, that was the year that the 18 years period of Oy and Ashrai began, the final process.

Keep in mind the year the First Temple was destroyed was exactly 57.78% of the way from Adam to Moshiach in 5778 HC (2018 CE), and we obviously didn’t do enough to recuperate all the sparks to that point.  Will we do enough in the next 5 years? There are only 5 years left until 5778 (2018 CE).

If you want to know where you can find them, the Zohar, the Baal Shem Tov and many of the tzaddikim have answered that.  Since the klippot feed off these Holy sparks, all we have to so is look around and see where the klippot are congregating. Where evil gathers, there is hidden goodness to be uncovered, buried treasure if you will.  Find the good, the positive in bad situation and the sparks will be liberated.

When One and One Really Equals Two.

G-d is one. His Name is one. So what happens when we add two of the most powerful YHVHNames of G-d.  The Ones that join Zeir Anpin with Binah and alternatively, the left (judgement) and right (mercy) sides of the junction of that crucial union.

Binah, whose energy is traced through the left side of the Tree-of-Life is connected to the EHYHenergy of G-d Name, Ehyeh (EHYH), while Zeir Anpin’s energy is traced through the right side of the Tree-of-Life and is connected to the energy of the ineffable Name of G-d (YHVH), the Tetragrammaton.

When we spell out a Name we’re increasing it’s strength. It’s called filling out and we’re getting a fuller presentation of the energy represented within.  In the case of the YHVH, there are 4 different ways of spelling it, all associated with a different level or sefirot: Av with Chochma; Sag with Binah; Mah with Zeir Anpin; and Ban with Malchut. It’s through these 4 Names that much of the understanding of Kabbalah has been revealed and most of the energy that enters our universe is transmitted.

Av: YVD HY VYV HY = 72

Sag: YVD HY VEV HY = 63

Mah: YVD HE VEV HE = 45

Ban: YVD HH VV HH = 52

All 4 levels have a total gematria value of 232

The are 4 corresponding levels of Ehyeh.

chochma: ELP HY YVD HY = 161

Binah: ELP HY YVD HY = 161

Zeir Anpin: ELP HE YVD HE = 143

Malchut: ELP HH YVD HH = 151

All 4 of these levels have a total gematria value of 616, which is the same as the numerical value of H’Torah (the Torah.), our greatest channel.

We know from the Divine Calendar that 8 is a key Biblical number and that nearly all the significant events in Biblical history occurred in years ending in 8 so it’s especially interesting that when we sum up all 8 filled-out Names of G-d, we get 232 + 616 = 848 or 2 x 424, with 424 being the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David (the Messiah).

232 + 616 = 848 = 2 x 424

In this case One and One really does equal Two.

M0reover, 616/8 =77, the numerical value of mazal (divine fortune or sustenance). And 848/8 equals 106 plus 1 for the kolel gives us 107, as in the sum of all the integers from 1 – 107 = 5778, the year prophesied by Rav Ashlag and the tzaddikim for Moshiach and the geula (final redemption).

This is just the simple math. What’s important is the energy and process beneath it, the unification of the two powerful Names to help bring us Moshiach.  To understand Kabbalah, you must look deeper.  The equations above haven’t changed in thousands of years; what’s changed is the timing: 5778 (2018 CE) is less than 5 years away.


The British Played a Critical Role.

Most readers of our articles are aware of the reflected or mirrored nature of the Hebrew and Western The Divine Calendarcalendars and the simple Divine Calendar that exists from Adam until the arrival of Moshiach (the Messiah) in 5778 (2018 CE).  And while Abraham was born in 1948 HC and Israel became a nation in 1948 CE, and 70 years later G-d made the Covenant of Halves with Abraham in 2018 HC and it is in 2018 CE (5778 HC) that it has been prophesied by the tzaddikim to be fulfilled, there is the role of the British that we never discussed.  Compared to the Greeks, Romans, Arabs and Ottomans, the time frame that Great Britain ruled over the Holy Land was miniscule, only 30 years, the time period not coincidentally between the end of the 2 World Wars.

The British Mandate for Palestine began when the British defeated Ottoman Turkish forces in 1917, which was made official on October 30th, 1918 and ended 30 years later at midnight on May 14th, 1948, when Israel became a nation, which means the British wrestled control of the Holy Lands out of Ottoman hands exactly 100 years before the date given for the fulfillment of G-d’s Covenant with the Jews in 2018 CE.

One Hundred (100) in kabbalah is universally known as a state of Keter (crown) and tree10represents the full strength of the 10 sefirot (dimensions). The 10 sefirot that comprise the Tree-of-life are always broken down into the 3 conjoined upper ones and 7 bundled lower ones, or 30 + 70 = 100.

This relatively tiny 30-year period encompassed the both World Wars, and the invention of Television, computers, jet engines, and nuclear weapons. It was a time of separation, but it gave way to a changed world, to our current 70-year period,  a world of rapid-fire technology, interconnection and interaction.  This final 100 years should give way to the final redemption (the geula).  The time-line always appears to be created by circumstance, until we step back and examine the big picture. At which point, it appears we had no free will after all; history was designed before it happened.

Like the gold that became the golden calf that had to have been placed in Aaron’s hands, if englandonly briefly, so too the Holy Land had to be placed in the hands of the British. A specific shift in energy was needed to buffer the future from the long length of the past, a tilling of the soil, irrigation, and germination period if you will to change the desert to an oasis.  This was on a spiritual level, obviously, because it was never the British intention and the period was marked with much of the worse destruction and senseless slaughter Man has ever known.

And yet, out of Nachor born in 1848 HC, and Terach born in 1878 HC came Abraham in 1948 HC, which is a similar period of 100 years split into two increments of 30 and 70 years, the darkness giving way to the Light.  The 18th, 19th, and 20th in line of Adam translating and transitioning to the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries today.

WashDC05_63_b8_smallAnd when the British handed off this tiny bit of Holy Land in a sea of hostile Arab lands to the Israelites, who was the only nation to stand beside Israel during the final 70 years?

America, the country who will celebrate its 115th Congress in 5778 (2018 CE), just as the the world celebrates the 115th jubilee year from Adam to Moshiach in 5778.

As the final few years of the 70 whittle down, we can only wonder how fast things will continue to accelerate and what all this interconnection will have brought us. The seeds are already sown.  We must ask ourselves: What is growing? What is growing within us?

Shabbat Shalom

The Covenant of Halves and the Counting of the Omer.

The year was 2018 HC, seventy (70) years after Abraham was born in 1948 HC, G-d had Abraham gaze up into the stars and He made the Covenant of Halves with him, in which He promised to make Abraham’s descendants more numerous than the stars and to give them the 10 lands between the two rivers, the Great Egyptian and the Euphrates.

Flash forward 3760 years to 2018 CE, 70 years after Israel became a nation in 1948 CE. dccover3dThe Hebrew Calendar year is now 5778 HC, the year prophesied by the Rav Ashlag and the tzaddikim for the arrival of Moshiach consciousness (the Messiah) and the geula (final redemption). The Divine Calendar has mirrored itself, folding in the middle, and the Covenant is about to be fulfilled.

According to the Zohar, the 70 year final waiting period corresponds to the birth pangs of Moshiach, and as it just so happens the phrase used for “70 years (VShBAYM ShN-H)” occurs 42 times in the Torah, as in the 42 journeys the Israelites made in order to reach the promised land the first time around. Now, everyone who has studied the slightest bit of Kabbalah knows the power of the 42Letter Name of G-d (the Ana B’koach) and that every time the number 42 occurs it’s a direct connection to that Name in order to support us. Moreover, according to Rav Brandwein of blessed memory in his paraphrasing of the Baal Shem Tov and other tzaddikim over the generations, “the understanding of the 42-Letter Name will bring about the geula (final redemption).”

Another painful waiting period was the “40 days and 40 nights” that the Israelites had to wait for Moses to bring down the Torah the first time. The exact gematria for both the Torah phrase used for “70 years (VShBAYM ShN-H)” and for “40 days and 40 nights” is  778 up to the final Hey of numerical value 5 of the phrase, thus implying a designed reference to 5-778.

Moreover, the very first time the 5-778 value phrase for 70 years is utilized in the Torah is in the 5th Chapter of Genesis with Lemekh(LMC)–kabbalistic code for king(melech, MLC)–who lived for 777 years.

And it’s even more significant that the next time it was used was in paragraph 42, at Genesis 12:4, when Abraham was “70 years and 5.”

So let’s back up 5 years, to today’s date, Pesach 5773 when we’ve just begun counting the Omer, as we’ve done for the last 3325 years, knowing that in 2018 CE (5778 HC) it’ll be menora 67th psalmexactly 3330 or 66.6 jubilee years since G-d commanded us to count both the Omer and the jubilee years (50 year period).  When we’ll reach the mid-point of the counting on the 25th day, we’ll reach the place in the pictographic menorah devised from King David’s 67th Psalm where the 25th word and the 25th letter of the central column intersect (the 1st Mem in YaMim).

It is here where the halves meet that we find the sum of the gematria values of the words and/or letters counted through the midpoint in the counting is exactly 5778, including the kolel for the 25 days.

Moreover, while the sum of the square roots of those 25 words is 345, the numerical value of Moses (MShH), the sum of the square roots of the 24 words prior to the midpoint is 333.078 or 3330 years and 78, which as explained by Rav Brandwein is the initials of Etz Chaim, the tree-of-life, that we find in 5778.

It’s divinely fitting that the two halves met up in King David’s Psalm, because exactly midway through his life we find the precise midpoint (2889 HC) in the 5778 years from Adam to Moshiach, which is why the Alef-Dalet and Mem in Adam (EDM) is known to represent Adam-David-Moshiach.

This is also why the complete value of the sofit spellings of Alef-Dalet and Mem is 1905 for the spelled-out (milieu) letters and 114 for their ordinal value, making a total of 2019, which just so happens to be the year that begins the new calendar of the Covenant, the coming together of the Halves.

Some things are written on parchment, other in stone, G-d wrote His Covenant with us in time. What we do with the time He gave us is up to us.
