The 26 Generations from Adam to Moses to Mashiach: Why do we Need Numbers?

Why do we count? Why does the Torah always list numbers, and why are numbers so hard for us to grasp?

The following is an excerpt from The Divine Calendar about the curious mathematics in the 26 generations from Adam to Moses. It is just one more aspect in and of the magnificence of the Torah. To most people reading and studying Torah (the Bible) the years in the generations of Adam are extremely insignificant and that may be the point: Even the most insignificant detail of the Torah shines with the magnificence and depth of the brightest star. I was compelled to make this particular post because I followed an advertising link to a site whose premise was that we can’t count the generations. I confess I didn’t read through their premises in depth, but if the Torah didn’t want us to count up its numbers, why is the Torah always taking censuses and counting everything constantly.  And why are there always deep and numerous revelations when we do.

Why would there be so much revealed perfection in the Torah’s numbers if we weren’t supposed to find it?

The answer is that our generation is meant to find this perfection. What else other than the awe of G-d can save us?

Rav Abraham Azulai in Chesed L’Avraham stated about the end of days, which he advised us would begin in 5760, “After this time, the hidden secrets of the Torah shall be revealed to all Israel, even to those that never tried to study Torah’s secrets beforehand. Though, that they did study Torah in exile, they shall now achieve to know the way of Sod.”

Then why are numbers so hard for so many people?

It is because they are Sod, secret knowledge. People’s eyes glaze over when they see numbers and they get sleepy, which is no different then often happens to people listening to a tzaddik speak. When the energy is too powerful, we can’t connect, so our minds disconnect. But know this, everything in the Torah is a gift, and everything was meant for us to take advantage of it.

OK, secrets, sure, but those can be bottom-lined for us, why do we need to look at the numbers?

Because numbers contain enormous power unto themselves, which is why there are so many of them in the Torah. Think of them as the IP addresses of various cosmic computer stations. Once you once the address your mind/soul can dial in, the same way your web browser does for you while you’re sitting at your desk, unlocking an endless stream of information. Now imagine, if all those web addresses were sorted into a specific order for you to link into just the right and accurate information and to tap into just teh right frequency of energy you need to maximize your potential this and every week of the cosmic year. This is why the Torah is divided into very specific portions (parshot) according to the weeks and holidays of the cosmic calendar year. Now these cosmic web sites are wonderful to visit, but if you could only read them (if they were in your language) how much more would you get out of them. And that’s what were are attempting to do in this blog, help you to read the cosmic web sites, translate them as best we can, because the closer we get to 5778 and the “end of days” the more we’ll need accurate information and the appropriate spiritual energy.

So what energy can we tap into this today?

At the end of this except from The Divine Calendar, one of the more technical sections of it, I’ve added new important revelations about the chronology of these 26 generations and their connection to the prophesied arrival of Moshiach in 5778.

“There are 26 direct generations in the lineage from Adam to Moses, and we know exactly how long each of them lived according to the Torah, which the sages say existed before Creation and the scientists and scholars tell us existed for the past 3330 years or so. Nevertheless, if we list all 26 generations and take the logarithm of each, and then sum up these 26 irrational numbers, we get exactly 66.661199… or 66.66.12, a numerical pictograph of 666 and 612, which is the numerical value of “Covenant, or Brit.

What are the odds of that? Really. If the Torah were divinely designed, then there’s no issue. Of course the same force that created all our mathematics could have designed this specific set of 26 interlocking numbers that ended in the year 2488 HC to be anything that He wanted it to, but if we want to design a scenario where Man could have created this chart 3330 years ago, then we have a problem. You see, John Napier only began developing the concept of logarithms around 400 years ago.

Ironically, or maybe not coincidentally at all, John Napier wrote a book about the mathematics of the Book of Revelations, but what he wasn’t privy to was that there were 600,000 Israelites at Mount Sinai when the Torah was given and when the 27, or 33, Hebrew letters of the Hebrew alphabet are broken down into their component parts they expand to 50 total letters, which makes the number of actual letters in the Torah climb from 304805 to exactly (600,000408.)

Now, there are many reasons why the Torah was designed to be 408 letters shy of the perfect 600,000, one of them being that 408 x 6 = 2448 and 2448 HC was the year the Torah was given to us at Mt Sinai, but what ties this all together so utterly perfectly is that the log of 600,000 is 5.778.

LOG(600,000) = 5.778.

The other oddity to notice about the above generational chart is that the sum of the 26 square roots, again 26 irrational numbers, also works out to 535.814805…, with 358 being the numerical value for Mashiach, the Messiah, and 814 being the numerical value of the phrase from Leviticus 19:18, “You must love your neighbor as (you love) yourself,” and 805 being the numerical value of “The Rainbow” which was G-d’s Covenant with the Earth following the Flood.

Of further note is that not only does the cumulative sum of the 26 square roots connect to Mashiach, but the cumulative sums of the first 17 (the value of tov, good) do so as well. They sum to 424.666, a not so subtle connection to Mashiach Ben David (424) and 666.

Also, you may have observed that the numerical sequence or string 5358 is found at the 9th position in the mathematical constant Pi: 3.14159265358, right after the number 26 representing both the Tetragrammaton and the 26 generations, whose square roots summed to 5358, and that the number 26 immediately follows the number 9.

Now someone might say that there existed in the days of Moses a genius capable of doing square roots and logarithms and that he somehow contrived to create a 26-generation chart where the dates end in 8’s and the logs sum to 66.6612 and square roots sum to 535.814805 and that he knew that out of the 304805 letters in the Torah, there would be exactly 4805 letter Pe’s, each of value 80, and moreover, that he convinced Moses to let him write this section of Genesis, but did he also create Pi, which is really nothing more than a mathematical result of curving a line into a circle and which thus existed at the dawn of creation? Do we really think that this is logical reasoning? That this is plausible?”

So what is really going on here?

Obviously, in building-in such precision perfection, which we can easily unravel given today’s technology, G-d wanted to give everyone in this generation the opportunity to realize in time the blessings of Torah and that there is so much more out there than we can fathom with out limited minds.

But just as importantly, the Torah is letting us know that we all come from the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) and that if your soul is one of the 600,000 that was at Mt Sinai, then it came through and was at one point united within Adam, and that it needs to be reunited again with H’Mashiach (the Messiah) in 5778.

That’s why it’s called a divine calendar; because it was preordained, and the Torah’s wants us to know that, to tune into that so it can help us to unify, to reunite. If the Torah knew the path our 600,000 souls would take then it also knew how difficult the path would be and how much help we’d need in the end days. This is why we were given this 18-year period from 5760 to 5778 (2000 CE to 2018) to live (18 is the value of chai, life) and to learn this technology, of which permission has only recently been granted for it to be made available to everyone.

If you’re reading this, chances are you are one of the 600,000 and need to help get it to the other 599,999. If you were a cell in your body, you wouldn’t think twice about helping and sharing valuable info with the rest of your body–this is what keeps you alive, but as humans, it’s not our nature (or so we deceive ourselves into thinking). Think about that: How can what our cells do naturally not be within our nature. This is the illusion of our present world. This is what Torah is trying to help us break though. This is what is on the other side of the end of days. It is the tree-of-life reality.

What about those new revelations?

We know that the number 8 plays a significant role in the divine calendar, and we also know from chazal that all the Patriarchs were supposed to live as long as their fathers, so it’s probably not a coincidence that 8 of the 26 in the generations from Adam to Moses, both of whom are aspects of Mashiach, lived shorter lives than their fathers did.  They are:

Kenen, the          4th generation

Yered, the           6th generation

Methusalah, the  8th generation

Noach, the         10th generation

Eber, the            14th generation

Terach, the         19th generation

Isaac, the            21st generation

Amran, the         25th generation

We’ve seen repeatedly in our blog posts how the number 107 is encoded into many of the Torah verses and/or Bible codes and we know that since it is a spiritual tenet that nothing is ever lost, we understand the significance that all the integers from 1 to 107 add up to 5778.  Thus, isn’t it significant that the sum of the generations of those 8 forefathers of ours is 107, thueds linking them, us to 5778.  And also that the first 5 are all even numbers that add up to 42, as in the 42-Letter name of G-d, that we learned from the Arizal, is our real soul root (see the blog post regarding this), and also that the last 3 are all odd numbers which add up to 65, the numerical value of Adonai. Now, if you piece it together in reverse order, you can trace it back to 3,5,8 or 358, Mashiach.

With these simple ages, the Torah is helping us to reconnect with our soul roots and to connect to the Mashiach.  Note, all these numbers come from the extraordinarily secret Book of Adam, as the Torah alludes to in Bereshit 5:1, to which only a very few tzaddikim have been privileged to see, but now we can all connect with this knowledge openly.

And since the Torah wants to illustrate the parts are all part of the whole we can see from these numbers that the sum of the integers from 1 to 26 (YHVH) is 351 and that the sum of square roots of the 18 (26-8) numbers not highlighted for us is 351.702, with the number 702 being the value of Shabbat, the 7th day.  And if you add 7 to 351, you get 358, Mashiach again.

One more parting gift: 5778/107 = 54, which is the numerical value of the letters dalet and nun, the two letters of the month of Scorpio, according the Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah, that are also associated with the arrival of Mashiach, but this will be explained in detail in another post.

The Halfway Point and the End of the Alphabet

We’ve seen that in the Divine calendar from Adam to Mashiach, year 0 to year 5778 HC there is midpoint marked by the midpoint of King David’s 70 years life, the year 2889 HC. And it’s known by chazal that אדם (ADAM) stands for Adam-David-Mashiach. It’s also known that because David was necessary for mankind but given no life of his own until the end of time in 5778 that Adam gave 70 years of his proposed 1000 year life for David and thus lived only 930 years.

But it’s also known that Jacob gave up 33 of the years of his life since he was supposed to live as love as Isaac, his father (180) and that Joseph likewise gave up 37 years of his life since he was to live to 147 like Jacob, and not the 110 that he did. Together they sacrificed 33 + 37 = 70 years, but since David already had his life allotted to him by Adam, who received the patriarch’s 70 years. Just perhaps these are the 70 final years from the founding of Israel in 5708 to the final redemption in 5778.

So considering this divine calendar so perfect in its construct as delineated in the Book The Divine Calendar, what significance is there in David’s birth in 2854 HC, exactly 406 years after the reception of the Torah at Mt Sinai in 2448, seeing as 406 is the numerical value of the letter Tav, the last of the 22 regular letters, the one representing the end and malchut. If David’s birth was the end, what followed?

And while there were 406 years from the giving of the Torah to King David’s birth in 2854 and 406 is the spelled-out value of the letter tav (ת), there were an additional 906 years until the year 3760, the pivotal year 0 CE in the Gregorian calendar and 906 is the sofit value for the spelled out letter koof (ק). There were also 906 years (representing Koof) from the Covenant of Abraham to the Birth of King David, displaying symmetry with the Birth of King David at the apex and/or bottom depending on your perspective.

Now the letter combination Tav-koofתק is not commonly used as a word in Hebrew, but the Zohar does use it to describe the actual distance/length of the Tree-of-Life, which is 500 parsangs פרסה according to the Zohar, the Book of Splendor. It is an interesting description for the distance (in spirituality time is measured as distance, and distance as similarity of form) between the giving of the Torah and the pivotal beginning of the Gregorian calendar-from one end of the tree-of-life unto the other.

But if we were to extend outwards from the year 0 CE (3760) that same distance of 500 parsangs, which we now know to be 406 + 906 = 1312 years, the next edge of the Tree-of-Life would reach the year 1312 CE or 5072 HC, which is 706 years before 5778 HC, the prophesied date of the arrival of the Messiah. And 706 is the value of the composite letters (nun sofit and vav) in the letter ץ Zaddi sofit, the last of the 5 final letters םןץףך, and the last of the total 27 letters in the Hebrew Alphabet (alef-bet), the end of the end.

Since we know Adam was to live 1000 years and 1000 is Elef (אלף) and thus also Alef (אלף) than we see the 2889 calendar spread out from Adam to David and from Alef-to-Tav. There is a kabbalistic refrain for the word Atah, אתה, said in every blessing, and that is from Alef to tav to the ה hey of malchut. This hey (ה) represents the 5 final letters, Manzipach, (םןץףך, ךםןףץ), whose simple numerical value is 280 and who collectively represent judgment. Their final value is 3500 and 3500 – 2889 = 611, the numerical value of the “Torah.”

And considering that Zaddi is the last of the 5 final letters, it’s very apropos that the spelled-out values of the composite letters (ן nun sofit and vav ו) that make of the Zaddi sofit(ץ) is 778, as in 5778.

We know that the 78 in 5778 represents the tree-of-life through its initials, the Ayin-Chet (numerical value 78) of YZ ChYYM, and we’ve just learned the the letter Zaddi sofit (ץ) will be found at the end of time (5778), so now we can better understand the reason David had to be given 70 years of life, and also the reason that the Patriarchs had to give up 70 years of their lives in order to support us during the final 70 years from Israel becoming a nation in 5708 until 5778.  The 70 years is the Ayin (Y) of value 70 in the word tree, which in the end of days will be combined with the Zaddi sofit (ץ) to form Etz, (ץ), the tree.  And Chaim (life) (ChYYM) can be permuted to form Mashiach (MShYCh) when the second letter Yud is converted to a Shin through gematria albam.  Thus when Mashiach comes in the end of days, we’ll have available to us the tree-of-life (10 sefirot) consciousness, the ability to see beyond the illusion of reality.

And the word for reality in Hebrew (MZYEVT) is comprised on Metz (MZ) meaning chaff (the surrounding husks we throw off/away) and 10 (Y) Ot (EVT), meaning signs, or possibly 10 sefira, thus what we call reality  now is in actually a covering of the signs we need to guide us through life, a covering of the 10 sefirot, which is life itself, the life of the soul.  Once H’Mashiach comes along the chaff will be blown away for those that really want to see, to live.  For 3330 (or 50 jubilee x 66.6 years) since the time of the 10 signs/plagues we’ve sampled this every Pesach (Passover) when we cleansed our homes of all H’MZ (chaff).  But we haven’t been able to rid ourselves of the Metz (chaff) inside us, inside our heads.

So it seems that the year 5778 is not only the end of the Divine Calendar, but of the Hebrew alef-bet as well.  What happens thereafter has yet to be written.

We do need to work on getting rid of the metz (chaff) in our heads; that much is clear.  No drop from above happens without two drops from below, work and faith.  The Mashiach will come.  It’s up to each of us to benefit from it.  Remember, the future is yet to be written.
