Sarah Lives, and who else because of her?

All the portions begin with deeply encrypted messages and these are the seed level energies imparted to us weekly, which is why Torah was split into these specific and very uneven portions in the first place. This portion, Chayei Sarah, the 5th in the Torah and the 55th paragraph in the Torah begins seemingly simple enough. Aryeh Kaplan translates the 12 words of the portion’s first verse (Genesis 23:1) as “Sarah had lived to be 127 years old. These were the years of Sarah’s life.” Perhaps a more accurate translation is as the Zohar states it: “And Sarah was one hundred year and twenty year and seven years old; the years of Sarah’s life.”

Let’s examine the verse more closely.

The verse begins with the palindromic word “וַיִּהְיוּ” meaning “And there were….” or “and they became” If we change the vowel of the first vav to Shva (two vertical dots) the meaning becomes “and they will be.” This is interesting because the rare palindromic nature of this word indicates a coming and going in two different directions, future and past.

The first four words in the verse reads like this “וַיִּהְיוּ חַיֵּי שָׂרָה, מֵאָה” and the total gematria of these 4 words is 616, the same numerical value as התורה, “The Torah.” The numerical value of the second word in the verse is 28 (as in the value of Koach, power), but it turns out that 616 = 28 x 22 and that the name Sarah is mentioned without prefixes 28 times in The Torah and 22 times through this verse. And that’s probably just as coincidental as the fact that Moshe’s name is mentioned without prefixes exactly 616 times in “The Torah,” and of course that there are 22 letters in the aleph-bet.

The Name Sarah is found another 10 times for a total of 38 times in the Torah.

And we should keep in mind that the square root of 616 is 24.8 which happen to be the value of Abraham (248) and also Raziel.

While the numerical value of the first letters of the first 3 words is 314, as in PI, Shaddai and Mettatron, the last letters of the first four words of the verse, permute to the Tetragrammaton, “י׃ה׃ו׃ה” so obviously there’s lots of substance here.

The first 9 letters out of the 45 letters in the verse add up to a value of 365, and as in the value of the letter Shin ש., spelled out, השין, or “The Shin” while 45 plus 300, the numerical value of shin, is 300 + 45 = 345, the numerical value of Moshe. Including the 8 in this verse , there are 1424 Shins in the Torah, with 1000 being representative of Keter and 424 being the value of Mashiach ben David.

There are also 9 letter Yuds י in the verse. And the complete numerical value of Shin-Yud including its ordinal value is 310 + 31 = 341, which is the numerical value of the 3 Mother letters, Alef, Shin and Mem אמש. We’ve previously linked Abraham and Sarah to the 3 Mothers with Sarah representing the Shin ש. Up to this verse, there are 3142 yuds in the Torah and 3142 is the small gematria value of Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh, “I Am that I am,” which represents the upper 42 letters of the Name of G-d, etc. The central shin of this all-important phrase, becomes the 9th shin of this verse and balances out the 9 yuds.

4 of those 9 י yuds are in the 1st two words and together the 4 yuds sum to 40, and often 4 yuds in a verse are associated with special healing properties, like the 4 yuds in the שמע־ישראל Shma Israel.. and in the Shem Mem-Bet (שם־מ״ב) (Ana B’koach אנא־בכח). We also know that the name Moshe forms one of the 72 triplets (Names ע״ב־שמות), the 5th one (מהש MHSh), and is also associated with healing properties.

So looking at the first 3 words again: “וַיִּהְיוּ חַיֵּי שָׂרָה” we can extrapolate the 4 yuds to be a Mem as in Moshe, The Shin of Sarah forms the Shin of Moshe, and the He of Sarah also passes to Moshe, spelling מהש MHSh and leaving והרוח, “v’h’ruach” meaning “and the spirit of Moshe.” So it’s not far fetched to presume that the verse is stating that Sarah will live through the spirit of Moshe. Especially since the verse then states that Sarah lived 100 year and 20 year, which makes 120 years together, which was the lifespan of Moshe. Thus we have Sarah will live through the spirit of Moshe for 120 years.

It also then adds 7 years, which we all know represents Zeir Anpin and Malchut, the lower 7 sefirot (dimensions). The total of 127 years is interesting for several reasons. First, because there are 127 possible combinations of 7 items (letters, doubles, etc) and secondly because we know from chazal that Sarah reincarnated as Queen Ester who ruled over 127 nations, which is interesting because the atbash isאת־בש of Sarah (שרה) has the numerical value of 95, as does Malcah מלכה, Queen.

But in going back to the first few words again and looking at the 2nds, 3rd and 4th words, “חַיֵּי שָׂרָה, מֵאָה” an taking out the משה of Moshe, we’re left with הארי־חי, “The Ari Lives.” The word ordinal value of the 9 letter sequence that spells out this cryptic message about the Arizal, (2nd+3rd+4th = 9) leads us to 9 again, a recurrent theme in this verse.

Another recurrent theme is 5, as in the 5th portion and 55th paragraph and Sarah’s name’s value, 505, and since we know every little detail in the Torah has significant meaning and a purpose beyond our vision, we should note that the numerical value of “Ari” is 211, as in the the verse Bereshit 21:1 that prophesied about the Messiah’s arrival, and that there are 125 occurrences of words with the numerical value 211 in the Torah, and 125 = 5 x 5 x 5. Moreover, permuted versions of the 3 letters in Ari that form actual words occur in the Torah exactly 18 times, as in the numerical value of chai, “lives,” once again pointing to The Ari Lives. And how many of those occur through this verse? 5, of course.

We know from chazal the Ari was an incarnation of Moshe Rabbeinu so how interesting is it that the first word in the verse and parsha can be translated as “and they became.” And it was the Arizal himself who went into a lengthy discourse on the connection of this verse to Abraham’s 175 years and the 370 lights of Arich Anpin, but what he didn’t tell us was that seeing as Abraham was 137 at the time of Sarah’s death, Abraham lived another (175-137) = 38 years, and that’s how long the Ari lived, which is turns out is the same amount of times Sarah’s name is mentioned in the Torah. So the verse becomes, not Sarah lived for 127 years, but Moshe will live for 120 years and the Ari for 38 years.

And we know from chazal that the last letters in phrase speak to the future, so how fitting is it that the last letters in all 12 words of the verse add up to 211. as in the numerical value of “Ari

And so we ask, what does the 9 recurrences in this verse of the Shin and the yud have to do with the Ari. We can see that they are central to the word, Mashiachשיח), but as the Torah draws us deeper, we see that the value of the spelled out Shin and Yud add up to 360 + 20 = 380 and 380 is not only 38 x 10 (sefirot), but 380 is the numerical value for Egypt (Mizra’im) from whence came the Ari.

And simply, while the last letters of the first four words equaled the Tetragrammaton “י׃ה׃ו׃ה”, the last letters of those 4 words, indicating the future and as we’ve seen pointing to Moshe Rabbeinu and the Arizal add up to 358, when the kolel of 4 is included, and 358 is the numerical value of the Mashiach, the messiah. And do not forget that the 4 points to the 4 exiles, which B”H will be coming to an end very soon.

So we must ask is the ש in Mashiach (משיח) also attributed to Sarah. משיח could equal מש־חי “From Shin lives

There are many more secrets contained in this verse, which we’ll leave for another time. including the connection to Daniel 12:7, and also how the 3 Mothers, 7 doubles and 12 elementals play into the verse as they control the cosmos.

The word shana שנה (year) has the numerical value of 355, the same as sefira (dimension), which is what led chazal to connect the 100 years to the dimension of Keter and the 20 years links to keter through the caf whose value is 20 and through the word twenty (עשרים) whose value is 620, which is also the value of keter (כתר),

As an additional note: The numerical value of “100 year (מֵאָה שָׁנָה)” is 46+355 = 401. and if we add the kolel for the 6 letters we get 401 + 6 = 407, whose square root is 20.17424 (2017 424) or the combined values of Mashiach ben David (424) in the year 2017. And then there is the last 7 years, whose numerical value (וְשֶׁבַע שָׁנִים) is 778 as in 5778, which begins in 2017 and is perhaps meaningful.

The Mystery of the 600,000 letters Solved. The choice: Programmer of Programmee.

There has been a great mystery in Kabbalah and Judaic studies for millennium. The Zohar and chazal clearly state in many places that there are 600,000 letters in the Torah, but just as clearly if you count them, there are only 304,805 actual letters. Many people have posited that they were counting the white fire between the letters, or duplicating the letters by counting their upper world reflections and other theories, but none of these calculations ever came close enough to 600,000 to satisfy anyone, so the mystery persists. Or does it?

The first thing we need to understand is that the letters are already upper world manifestations (black fire) in our world and that their meaning/essence is as hard to actually grasp as is a fleeting inspiration drifting down from keter and chochma–you may have it one second and lost it the next. But it is essential that grasp and understand the letters as best we can.

But why do we really need to understand the letters when we already understand the words?

We can all understand, especially with the guidance of our spiritual rabbis, past and present, the meaning of the words, so why look any deeper to the letters? The answer is the same as with your computer programs. You can email and IM your friends and colleagues and play all sorts of great games on your computer, but unless you know the programming code you can’t create programs themselves, and as any kabbalist, spiritual teacher, theologian, and most rabbis and Torah scholars will tell you, our purpose is to be more like the Creator, not just his recipient.

When you analyze how a program was created, you gain insight into how the programmer thinks, into how his mind works, and so it is with the programming tools of the Torah (which incidentally are mimicked in the technology of all our prayers). These tools are the patterns and algorithms used to create what we call words, verses, paragraphs and the chapters of the Torah. And the building blocks, as Abraham explained to us in the Sefer Yetzirah, are the 22 Hebrew letters. He further explained that they should be counted, measured, permuted and studied.

So we can either spend our time sending email to our friends and colleagues, or learn about who enabled us with the ability to have friends and colleagues in the first place. Yes, we are supposed to do our spiritual work in this world with those people, but if you have the merit to understand more, you have the obligation to those very people to do so. You must be their channel. You also have the obligation to yourself to be more like the Creator, because the more you understand about how He thinks, the more that gets revealed to you about how the universe really works. You can see the email on your screen, or look deeper and see the world for the illusion that it really is.

Every bit of technology that gets revealed comes with a gift. It comes with additional understanding to be sure, but it also comes with the means to bridge Heaven and Earth, to change your reality, to help people, to improve the world of tikun, and for you to do your part in bringing about the arrival of H’Mashiach.

The choice is yours–it always has been: To be a programmer or to be programmed.

As we draw within a short few years of the programmed date for the arrival of the messiah and Mashiach consciousness, the Lord is fulfilling his promises of revealing all the knowledge to us. Thus each one of us will have been given the tools to have done his part in bringing about the geula, the final redemption. On the flip side, no one will be able to say that they weren’t given the opportunity and had chosen accordingly. There will be a great split (schism) accompanying the time of Mashiach and there will be two different worlds afterwards. And we’ll each be given the opportunity to prove which world we belong in, for that is why we were born in this generation.

For that reason, it’s time to reveal the 600,000 letters, which we know from chazal connect with the 600,000 Jewish souls that received the Torah 66.6 jubilee years ago at Mt Sinai, and for a lack of belief of a mere 6 hours lost the opportunity to know immortality on the heavenly scale. It’s said that we all have a letter in the Torah, now we know it is our root to Heaven. It is also our route.

The answer to the riddle of the 600,000 letters is quite simple, which in and of itself explains why it must have been concealed from chazal until now. If the 22 plus 5 final Hebrew letters are broken down into their correct 50 composite parts (letters) the answer becomes clear. But first, we should note that when we break down a composite letter into the letter elements that formed it, we’re going one step deeper into the mind of the Creator. For example, the mem is written (created) by combining a caf and a vav and placing them in an exact juxtaposed position. We know that Caf-vav of numerical value 26 is a direct reference to the Tetragrammaton, (YHVH) and the ordinal value of Caf-vav is 17, that of tov, meaning good, so just having this little bit of programming knowledge brings new meaning to every word you see and read containing the letter mem.

The next point we need to know is that there being 50 essential letters (composite parts) is no accident. We know from chazal that 50 connects to Binah (the upper sefira of understanding) and that the Torah makes a very distinctive point to tell us to count the jubilee years, each of which is 50 years long.

Once we multiply the 27 letters, individually broken down into 50 parts by the number of times each letter occurs in the Torah, we get a total of 599592 letters, or exactly (600,000408) as shown in the chart below:

So why not exactly 600,000 letters, which would show show us perfection? Because we already know G-d is perfect and what He wants is for us to understand his thought process, the underpinnings of the universe, and then realize how perfect the universe is.

So why exactly 408 letters shy of perfection (600,000) as we understand it. Since 60% of the verses in the Torah begin with the letter vav of numerical value 6 and all but 6 columns begin with the standard letter vav (6) and since the letter vav represents Zeir Anpin, the connection to Heaven, and thus represents the link to the upper sefirot, let’s see what happens if these 408 letters were all vavs, and 408 x 6 = 2448. And if you recall from The Divine Calendar or from your own Biblical studies, 2448 was the year of the Exodus from Egypt and the reception of the Torah at Mt Sinai.

Now, if we’ve learned any insight into the thought process of Hashem, it is that everything has multiple correct meanings and every bit of technology works overtime to delineate multiple story lines for us, multiple opportunities and streams of knowledge for us.  One of those streams leads us to the realization that the 50 component letters led us to (600,000 – 408) which led us to 408 x 6 = 2448 HC and that in turn leads us to 2448 + 50 (jubilee year) X 66.6 = 5778, the year prophesied for the arrival of H’Mashiach.

The Zohar explains this connection to the jubilee year and to 408 in Toldot 8:68., in referring to Vayikra 25:13, “In the year of this Yovel, you shall return every man to his possessions, when this (h’zot) shall be finished. The numerical value of hazot is 5408.”

According to the Zohar, the 6 directions/extremities of Heaven measures 600,000 parasangs, so the 408 could also represent a space, but that’s just a thought to ponder. What we do know is that the highest word value in the Torah is the word from Devarim 7:3 (shall marry, TChTTN) of numerical value 1500, but when we use the 5 final letters the highest word value is from Bamidbar 16:13 (you shall rule, TShTRR) and it is 1908 and interestingly enough 19081500 = 408.

Now, 1908 is not only 110 (the numerical value of nes, miracle) years earlier than 2018, which in the Hebrew calendar was the date of the Covenant of Abraham and in the Western (Gregorian) calendar is the year prophesied for the arrival of H’Mashiach (5778 HC), but 600,000/1908 = 314.465408… with 314 being Pi, Shin-dalet-Yud (Shaddai) and Mettatron, the archangel (and a central reference point of Bereshit , as per all the revelations in The Genesis Prayer. And if we wanted to examine this deeper, we could say that 46 in 314.465408 is Me’ah, the measure of the cubit (a whole secret unto itself for later posts) and that 5408 in 314.465408 is 370 years before 5778 and we know from the Arizal how important 370 is in conjunction with the 370 lights of Arich Anpin.

As far fetched as this seems, the Zohar in Toldot 8:68, tells us in explanation of the Bible codes that the word H’zot defines the arrival of Mashiach and then 40 years later the resurrection of the dead, but I’ll expand on that in a separate post and it goes on to explain that the reason for this is that with the He of h’zot, the word value becomes 5408, as in the year 5408. What they didn’t say was that the small gematria of h’zot is 5718 and is we add the cholam for forgiveness to the alef, we get 5778, the prophesied date for H’mashiach and the geula.

Meanwhile 600,000/1500 = 400, signifying an end by the value of the letter Tav (400). And according to chazal, in the end of days there will be a period of 8 years in which in H’Mashiach will have to pass through in order to achieve the brit, covenant in 5778. Obviously, this is the same process as the brit milah for the newborns.

The value 408 is also the value of the word, Zot (TzET), meaning “that” in the feminine. According to the Zohar, Zot is a code word for the Messiah, It also signifies Malchut, our world of receiving, which is why when we lift the Torah, we recite V’Zot H’Torah, because the 408 (the malchut) is not part of the Torah and must be added to it to complete it. Also, by coupling it with Vav, representing the 6 sefirot of Zeir Anpin, it’s yet another indication that 6 x 408 = 2448, as explained above. Moreover, the numerical value of Zot plus H’Torah is 408 + 616 = 1024 = 32 squared, or the 32-Paths of Wisdom (the tree-of-life_ squared. And we know from R’ Chaim Vital of blessed memory that all Torah light is spread by squaring. The value 1024 is also the total number of different word values in the Torah, of which 1500 was the highest. It is also 2 raised to the power of 10 (sefirot, dimensions).

But since we know from the revelations about the verses of Vayera, Bereshit 2018 and 21:1 made in previous posts and from the revelations in the book Nothing is Random in the Universe that there is a split in the time frame from before 2018 to after 2019 is it really a surprise to find out that the square root of 408 is 20.19…?

And how perfect is it that when we take the complete value of each of the 27 letters (standard plus ordinal and the complete value of the 50 composite letters that make up those 27 letters we get a total valuation for the alef-bet of 10386, which works out to the number of net actual rows in the Torah (248 columns x 42 rows less the blank lines) and for the (600,000 – 408) composite letters in the Torah that this gives an average of 57.73 letters per line. 600,000/10386 would have given us and even closer date of 57.77, so maybe that 408 represents a space that we have to fill to overcome the gap between ourselves and Mashiach consciousness.

Is it a fear, as the word Chat (ChT) of numerical value 408 would indicate? Perhaps, to know that we must all look inside. The Torah and the letters provide us with the clues and the technology, but we must do the work. That is why we were born in this generation. It is a great merit; let’s take advantage of it.

And speaking of Mashiach, if we take those 10386 full complete values individually and multiply them by the occurrences of their corresponding 27 letters in the Torah and then take their square roots (since R’ Chaim Vittal of blessed memory has revealed to us that all Torah light is spread through squaring) the 27 (50) letters’ square roots sum to 35797.9359, which is only a tiny .005766% off an exact 35800, or 358 x 100 (keter), with 358 being the value of Mashiach. What do we gave to fear?

And regarding the 600,000 Jewish souls at Sinai in 2448, we know from the Arizal that it was no accident for the Jewish soul root can be traced from the 600,000 to the 70 members of Jacob’s family who entered Egypt to his 12 sons to the 3 Patriarchs and back to Adam, and:

One soul divided by (600000/12/70/3) = .0042 or simply 42, as in the Shem mem-bet, at the very root of our soul. And as preposterous as this may seem 1/(600000/12/70/3) = 238.095, which is the exact the atomic weight of Uranium 238.

1/(600,000/70/12/3) = 238.095

and

1/238.095 = .0042

or simply

42

as in the Shem Mem-Bet

The End of Days is Spelled out in the Torah

According to Chazal and the Zohar, The word Pakad in Genesis 21:1 signals and speaks of the End of Days, the time of the resurrection. It also tells us when that will happen and what happens to the rest of the world, but we’ll get to those deeper secrets in a moment.

According to the Zohar, the portion Vayera, the 4th in the Torah, has a lot to do with the soul journey at the time of death. And let’s keep in mind that in the portion prior to Genesis 21:1, we’ve covered the destruction of Sodom and Gomorra, which led to the incest of Lot with his daughter, which we know eventually led to Ruth and to King David and thus to Mashiach Ben David, and we know that this was an extreme process of separating out the spark of holiness from the klippot, negative husks.

And for whatever reason, Sodom has the same gematria value as the spelled out letter Zaddi and “Sodom” and “Amora (there is no G in the actual Biblical name)” have the value of the spelled out letter tet, and that zaddi (90) and tet (9) together have the normal value of 99, which was Abraham’s age at the verse Genesis 21:1

Morever, “Sodom V”Amora” has the value of 425, which is the value of one of the 72 triplets (Names), CHT, the one that Moses used to remove all the negativity and thus slay the Egyptian (Cain, for those that understand) which began his saga of redemption. And is it not thus relevant that the Sitrei Torah concealed within the Zohar commentary on Vayera, delineates and explains about the 72 Names (triplets). And just to note, by removing the kolel of 1 from 425, we get 424 Mashiach ben David. But this is all just background.

Indeed, the portion of Vayera begins with specific encrypted instructions for what we should to do when we feel we’re in distress, but that’s for another post.

Genesis 21:1begins VYHVH PKD ET SRH”And G-d visited Sarah” But we learn from the Sitrei Torah (20:278) concealed with the Zohar’s commentaries on Vayera that all the Names of all the Angels and all the letters are united as one, “in one secret, by the power of the Almighty, then He is called VYHVH, all are united as one.”

Rav Ashlag of blessed memory explains that this refers to the unification of Zeir Anpin and Nukva with the 70 angels below her that control the 70 judgments of Nukva and that the vav preceding the holy Name (VYHVH) is called the “heavens.” We can extrapolate from here to the 70 nations and 70 ministers over those nation (which are presently in such upheaval), and to Gog V’Magog of value 70.

But the Zohar further reveals in this immediate section about the secret of the 248 body parts, which it refers to Man, and which is divided into 216 and 32, further referring to the 216 letters of the 72 (really 70) Names (triplets) and the 32 Paths of Wisdom.

We know that the 32 paths refers to the 22 connections (and 22 letters) of the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-Life, but 32 is also the value of and the secret of VYHVH. There are so many secrets here, but just keep in mind that 248 is also the numerical value of Abraham, and 216 is also the value of VYHVH PKD.

As a further hint to the significance of this verse, the 3rd word in the verse, Et has a numerical value of 401 and an ordinal value of 23, giving us a complete value of (401+23) = 424, that of Mashiach Ben David.

Now, while the first letter of each of the first 4 words of this verse (VYHVH PKD ET SRH) sum to (6+ 80+1+300) = 387, which turns out to be that of the 3rd line of the Shem Mem-bet, the 42-letter Name of G-d associated with bring the geula, the last two words of the four words sum to (401 + 505) = 906, which is that of the last (the 7th) line of the same Name, which is the line associated with Mashiach and manifestation.

Curiously, in referring to Genesis 21:1 the Zohar relates the story G-d choosing to save Joshua, the High Priest from Nebuchanezar’s burning pit while Satan urged that he be lumped into the same fate of all the false prophets in the pit. The Zohar explains that this is the way of Satan, to take advantage of the world in the time of distress.

Then after a brief discussion of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and the Throne of Judgment, the Zohar (Vayera 29:388) begins dealing with the End of Days and the resurrection of the dead that will happen in the end of days, specifically referring to the prophecies of Daniel, the resurrection of Moses, Yechezkel 37:12, and the key verse (Genesis 21:1) as explained in Zohar Vayera 29:392:

“This refers to the body, Sarah, and the King. So the Holy One, blessed be He, shall visit it at the appointed time, as it is written: ‘And Hashem visited Sarah as He had said.’ He shall visit the body at the appointed time, when He shall visit upon the righteous.” The Zohar goes into much explanation of these end times resurrection and the connection to the visit and everyone should read it for themselves to have better understanding, but this is just background for when G-d visited Sarah at Genesis 21:1, the 515th verse in the Torah, immediately after verse 20:18.

Bells should be going off, alarm bells, for Torah scholars and also for anyone familiar with the prophecies of the the arrival of Mashiach and The Divine Calendar.

First of all, as you may have recognized, Moses prayed 515 times to be allowed to enter the promised land and bring H’Mashiach, and we know from Chazal that Moses knew that if he prayed one more time, his wish would have been granted, but G-d asked him not to because it wasn’t the appointed time.

The Arizal tells us that there are 515 hours from Rosh Hashanah to Hoshanah Rabba, when we connect with the final judgment of the 5 final letters, and that Moses prayer once an hour for these 515 hours.

By the way, verse 21:1 further continues “and the Lord did for Sarah as he had promised.” And in the very next verse, Sarah conceives and bore a son to Abraham in his old age at the very time that G-d had promised him.”

Now, Abraham would be 100 when Isaac was born unto him, and while that is old, he lived another 75 years and bore many more children much later in his life. So while the significance of Abraham having Isaac when he was 100, numerically/kabbalistically at the level of Keter (crown), and thus crowned by Isaac is of a spiritual nature, what the Torah is referring to Old Age is in the time of Mashiach, at the very time that G-d had promised him.”

And what did G-d promise him (Abraham)? That his descendants would be as innumerable as the stars, etc. The Promise was the Covenant of Abraham, made in 2018 HC.

As explained in depth in The Divine Calendar it was in the year 2018 HC that G-d made his Covenant with Abraham, and 2018 CE is the Hebrew calendar year 5778 HC. Moreover, 2018 is 70 years later than Israel became a nation in 1948 CE, and in the Hebrew calendar, it’s the year Abraham was Born (1948 HC). The theme of 70 years is oft repeated in the Biblical (divine) calendar, and 70 also corresponds to the 70 years of David H’Melech, whose midpoint in his life in 2889 HC marks the midpoint in the divine calendar from Adam to Mashiach in 5778.

And a secret of Old Age is that its root letter are tzion-koof-nun and while the letter nun of value 50 has to do with the jubilee years, tzion-koof has the value of 107 and the sum of all the positive integers through 107 = 5778.

As is shown in Nothing is Random in the Universe, all the known mathematical and physical constants in the universe point to a definite dividing point in the time line between the year 2018 and 2019, corresponding to the separation in the two subsequent verses Genesis 20:18 and 21:1.

To see, what is being left behind, let’s look at Genesis 20:18, where we are told, “For the Lord closed up every womb in Abimelech’s household because of Abraham’s wife, Sarah.” “Every womb is Kol Rechem, and rechem, RChM, has the same numerical value as Abraham, and also of mercy/rachem, thus because we know Abraham spiritually represents chesed/mercy, the phrase is also saying all mercy has been closed off.

As for “in the household of Avimelech,” Beit Avimelech has the numerical value of 515, just like Moshe’s prayers for bringing H’mashiach, thus the prayers will be shut off just before the end of days. This also helps explain why this strange incident with Avimelech and Sarah occurred, why Sarah had to enter Avimelech household, just like why the Israelites had to live in the 70 nations prior to the redemption.

And speaking of the number, 70, the letter ayin has a numerical value of 70 and through and inclusive of this all-important pivotal verse 21:1, there are 848 letter ayin in the Torah, which is significant because 848 just happens to equal 2 x 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David.

As is explained fully in The Divine Calendar and The Genesis Prayer, nearly all the significant years in Biblical history ended in the number 8, just like the years 2018 and 5778; and the quantitative number of Torah elements did so as well, like the (80,000 – 3 x 8) words and the super exact 58 combined words, letters, and verses in the Torah; and even some of the key word values, like Noach (58), Abraham, 248, and Mashiach (358), whose numerical value 358 is found 80 times in the Torah, so it’s somewhat fitting that the number of words, letters, and verses in the Torah through this verse 21.1, are 8.0%, 8.5 and 8.8% of the entire Torah respectively and that combined, they are 8.14%

When we consider the small gematria of Pekad, (PKD) looking for its essence, we get 814, which is the numerical value of the all-important essence of the Torah encapsulated in Vayikra 19:18, often paraphrased as Love they neighbor as thyself. This concept of unconditional love reflects back to the 8.14% of the combined words, letters and verses in the Torah. While even the simplified small gematria of 8+1+4 = 13 indicates ahava of value 13, love. Moreover, the square root of the total numerical value of all the letters through this verse is 1300.7…

Those 8% values take into account all the 3 main Torah quantitative elements through this verse, but what about the rest of the Torah, what follows this verse? The total number of words, letters and verses after this verse is 358833 with 358 being the numerical value of Mashiach. 91.9% of the Torah follows this verse and there are 919 letter cafs (signifying keter) through this verse. Is it coincidental, maybe, but not when the whole picture is viewed.

And speaking of 8’s, there are 88 Tetragrammaton’s (YHVH)’s in the Torah through verse Bereshit 21:1.

And whatever we might think of the number 8, there are 616 letter chet of value 8 in the Torah through this verse 21:1 and 616 is the value of H’Torah, “The Torah.” And as for the letter Pe of value 80, it’s found 314 times in the Torah through this verse, which of course connects to the mathematical constant PI (3.14159265358), associated with the 42-letter Name of G-d, the Torah’s first verse, etc,, and it also connects to the Name Shaddai, ShDY of value 314 and to the archangel Mettatron of the same value. For much more on this, please see the Book There’s Nothing Random in the Universe.

Pekad (PKD), means to visit, command, order, count, recall and Peked, spelled the same way is a deposit so G-d visited Sarah is pregnant with meaning. Moreover, the ordinal value of the 3 letters in Pekad is 40, as in the numerical value of the letter mem, and we know from the Arizal that the mem represents the womb.

Nonetheless, the standard gematria of (Pekad) PKD is 184, and it just so happens that there are 184 letter gimmels in the Torah through this verse, of the total 577 gimmels in the entire Book of Bereshit. And 184 is 32% of 577, connecting once again to the 32 Paths of Wisdom and VYHVH that immediately preceded the word Pekad. And if we add the kolel for the 3 letters (and/or the letter gimmel) to 184 we get 184 + 3 = 187, the total number of chapters in the Torah. The letter gimmel is an important marker in the Torah because there are 2109 gimmels in the entire Torah and the total gematria value of the entire Torah is 2109826.

Indeed, many of the letter occurrences through this verse, Bereshit 21:1, tell stories. We’ve examined briefly, Ayin, chet, caf, pe, gimmel so far and have failed to mention that Ayin and chet, 78, are integral to the year 5778 and that Ayin-Chet represents the tree-of-life (Ytz Cha’im), and also that 78 is the the value of MChL, forgiveness. And lots not forget that, according to the Zohar, the very first word after 20:18 is VYHVH, representing the Tree-of-Life.

Other provocative letter occurrences through Bereshit 21:1 are: zaddi, 365, assocaited with the 365 days in the year and the 365 restrictive precepts, etc; koof, 318, associated with the 318 men of Abraham and the 5 parts of the soul, and ShYCh, etc; tav, 1370, associated with Kabbalah (to receive) of value 137 and the age of the universe, 13.7 billion years, etc; and bet, 1260 and tzion, 126, which represent 3 and 30 times 42, respectively; and samech, whose 96 occurrences have a total value that sums to 5760, the year 2000 CE, 18 years before 2018; and there are many others with more esoteric connections.

But perhaps more telling than any of the individual letter occurrences through this verse, is the total number of letters through it, 24507, because 24507/5778 = 4.24143 with 424, as previously said, being the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David. Moreover, 24507/424 = 57.79, analogous to the years 5779 and thus 2019. Also, 24507/PI (3.1415926..) = 7800.8, once again a reference to Ytz Cha’im, the tree-of-life.

Pekad (PKD) begins and ends with Pe and Dalet, which together spelled Pad, redemption, and we know from chazal that Pad, of numerical value 84 is referring to the redemption of the union of the upper and lower Shem Mem-bet or 42 + 42 = 84, about which we also know from chazal that the understanding of these 42-letter Names will bring about the Geula, the final redemption, but for more on that, please read The Genesis Prayer.

Moreover, the spelled out letters Pe and Dalet add up to 81 + 434 = 515, yet another connection to Moses’ prayers for the messiah and a connection to the appropriate time for the promise to be fulfilled. While the 3rd (middle) letter of the word, koof, has a value of 100, signifying keter, the crown, or crowning sefira (dimension). When we add the value of koof, spelled out, 186 to the value of the other two letters, and add 3 for the kolel of the 3 letters, we get 81+186+ 434 + 3 = 704, which is the same as that of the 4th line of the Shem mem-bet (Ana B’koach) the one associated directly with the brit (covenant) of H’mashiach.

When we add the value of koof, spelled out, 186 to the full value of 184, we get 370 as in the 370 lights of Arich Anpin for those that understand.

Why connect the fulfillment of the Lord’s promise, announced in this verse to Abraham and Sarah?

Because they connect to the 3 Mothers (primordial letters as spelled out in the Sefer Yetzirah): Abraham, Mashiach. and Sarah, represent Alef, Mem, and Shin respectively.

And here is a secret reason why from Rav Abraham Abulafia: When we permute (Tzeiruf) the letters in “Abraham our Patriarch” we get EMRY NBVEH, “statements of prophesy”

Is the verse telling us that the Lord keeps his promises, or that in projecting the future time and folding it back in on itself, he has already fulfilled his Covenant and brought the Messiah for us?

To fold time back on itself, He would need to fold it on (into) a specific point, and that point was given to us as 2018. The moment the Covenant was made it was fulfilled, only 3760 years had to pass for us to realize it. So it’s fitting that 376 is the value of Shalom and that the complete value of the 3 Mothers (normal and ordinal) is 341+35 = 376. And also that the values of Abraham, Sarah, and Mashiach together are 1111. A hint to the sublime Oneness that is to come!

And as explained in an earlier post: The numerical value for the messiah Lives (Mashiach Chai ) is 358 + 18 = 376.

As as for the numerical value 211, as in Bereshit 21:1, it’s the numerical value of the “Ari,” whose birth in 5332 had previously been used to pinpoint the arrival of Mashiach in 5778 and whose birth in 5332 is only 2 years off from the number of verses in the Torah (5845) less the 515 through verse 21:1, or 5845-515 = 5330.  Add 2 for the kolel as the Arizal was apt to do, and you get 5332.

Some people and places in Noach, Abraham and the Messiah

From Genesis 11:2 Shinar, where the Tower of Babel was built, is spelled (Sh,N,A,R) and all four of the letters are found in the second line of the Ana B’koach, the 42-letter Name of G-d (KRAShTtN) The two letters that are left, KTt spell the word tiny, so besides the usual known connections of this line to helping to remove negativity (KRA STtN) and to the technology of the shofar blowings we also have “Tiny Shinar”. And since Shinar has the numerical value of 620 the same as Keter, (crown), the highest sefira (dimension) it also means “tiny keter” or “tiny crown”. Since this line is associated with the sefira of gevura (judgment), the *Shinar* connection can also be a reference to *keter of gevurah. *
The full phrase from Genesis 11:2 is :”they found a valley in the land of Shinar” (VYMZEV BKAH BERZ ShNAR) The rest of the phrase adds up to 622 and is we add 3 for the kolel of the 3 words we get 625, which is not only the square root of all the words.verses and letters of the Torah combined, but the the value of H’keter, “The crown”
Please note that we are told by Chazal to permute the letters in each line of the *42*-Letter Name and there are exactly 620 different permutations with the 6 letters in each line, yet another obvious connection to *keter*.
In the 18th generation of Adam, *Terach* (TRCh) was born and value of his name plus the kolel of 3 for the 3 letters is 611, the same as “Torah. Now *Terach* was an idol worshiper, just like Yitro, whose name also has the value of 611. Terach was also Abraham’s father and Yitro Moses’ father-in-law. Another son of Terach also became the father of Sarah, grandfather of Rebecca and great-grandfather of Rachel and Leah, not to mention Ruth which led to King David.
Terach (TRCh) and his 3 sons, (Abram) EBRM, (Haran) HRN and (Nachor) NChVR all had the letter Resh (R) in their names (as in Ruth) and collectively there are 14 letters in their 4 names as in the value (14) of the name David, but when we take the Alef of Abram and add is to the name of Haran, mimicking the male-female exchange of seed/energy/mochin from Abraham and his defendants and Haran and his descendants and we get Aaron (EHRN), who we know to be connected to H’Mashiach (the Messiah) and whose name is the only one mentioned in the Torah in conjunction with H’Mashiach. The 4 names sum to 2577, which may or may not allude to the year 5778, the year prophesied for the arrival of H’Mashiach as explained in The Divine Calendar.
Abraham (still Abram at the time) was told to leave the land of this father and journey to the land G-d would show him. This occurred in the 42nd paragraph of the Torah (Genesis 12:1). When the connotes divine movement, as in the 42 journey of the Israelites, it usually does so with the paired prefixes, From and To (mem and bet, together, 42) and it did so here as well.
Journeying from Ur Casim* (M‘EVR CShDYM) which totals 621 or 620 plus the kolel of 1. The traveled toward Canaan (CNAN) whose value is 210, a hint of the 210 years of exile the Israelites would go through in Egypt once they left Canaan. They came as far as Charan and Terach died in Charan (BChRN), completing the mem-bet combination and giving the last word before the 42nd paragraph in the Torah the value of 910, plus 1 for the kolel, makes 911, the same as “Beginning” or without using the sofit gematria, simply the value 260 or 10 x the value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), 26.
