To Know Why the Year 5778 and Why PI, Sum it All Up.

We know that the number 5778 is inextricably linked to the mathematical constants Pi and Phi and that there seems to be a divine hand in it and plan afoot.  See There is Nothing Random in the Universe for all the details on how this plan unfolds in the world of physics and mathematics, and see The Divine Calendar for how it has unfolded throughout history. Today we’d like to point out one more linkage between Pi and 5778.

We’ve often shown how the Torah structure incorporates the summing of the integers, such as the numerical value of the 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse being equivalent to the sum of the integers through 73, the numerical value of Chochma (windom), and teh first 8 words of the Torah being equivalent to the sum of the integers through 77, the numerical value of Mazal (G-d given fortune).

And we’ve discussed how 5778 is the sum of the integers through 107 and of 54 average generations from Adam to the date prophesied for the final redemption, 5778 HC (2018 ce), the 28 generations from Moses to 5778 are each 120 years long, corresponding with Moses’ age of 120, and with the sum of the integers through 15.

It’s also known that the 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse are divided into 7 words and 28 is the sum of the integers through 7, and also that the first exile lasted 210 years, which is the sum of integers through 20, and that there are 66.6 jubilee years from the date that that exile ended, 2448 until 5778, and that 666 is the sum of the integers through 36 (LV), the number of tzaddikim the Zohar tells us is necessary to sustain our world.

You get the point.  The spiritual principle is that nothing is ever lost, and that the integers represent energy equivalents, which are added together as they progress. And this is why all the Yuds, Vavs and Heis, the building blocks of G-d’s Name, YHVH in the Torah, number 90,100, which is the sum of integers through 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David (the Messiah). See The Genesis Prayer for more details.

What the Torah is also teaching us is that our lives, and personal energy is the sum of our actions as well. That goes for us individually, as a nation, and as a global community.  Remember, nothing is ever lost.

So, if we were to sum up all the sums of the integers through 107, saying that each year of the grand exile from the Tree-of-life included the energy all the other years before it, each of which held its own repository of accumulated energy (for good or for worse) that that sum of sums would total 209,934, or 210,000 – 66, and 66 is the sum of the integers through 11, as in the 11 sefirot and 11 unique letters that the Torah’s first verse is created with.

That there are 1000 (keter) years (units) for each year of the 210 years of the Egyptian portion of the exile is interesting, especially with this being 2011, since 20 is the sum of the integers though 210, and 11 is the sum of the integers through 66,  The equation above would seem to loosely tie the year 5778 (2018 CE) to the year 2011.

What’s the physical connection?

Too early to tell, except that 2011 began with all these weird massive and sudden bird and fish deaths on 1/1/11. This may all be coincidence; nonetheless, it is a fact that 66 is .0314% of 210,000 and that 314 is the mathematical constant PI.

There is nothing random in or about our universe.  Which is why it behooves us to search out and understand the patterns. One of the basic tenets of Kabbalah is to keep asking why?

The numerical value 107 is that of Emunah (Faith) with the kolel. We must have faith to reach the Tree-of-life reality, and we must also have understanding.

The 8th Day of Chanukah; All the Lights are Lit.

The 8th Day of Chanukah; All the Lights are Lit.

Today is the 8th day of Chanukah, Zot Hanukkah, and the Zohar advises us that whenever we see the word Zot in the Torah, it’s a connection to the end of days, the finale redemption, which we know is really just the beginning or the Tree-of-life reality. Today is the day, all 44 physical lights are lit and blood (DM of value 44) of the judgments (m’damei of value 89, same as Chanukah) are removed. It’s also when all 156 lower spiritual lights are lit, connection us to Zion(of value 156), the point above Jerusalem where all the spiritual energy enters our world, the point also vaguely concealed in the middle of the last (malchut) line of the Ana B’koach (42-letter Name).  It’s also the day when ALL 314 (upper and lower) spiritual lights are revealed connecting us Metatron (314), who opens the gates for us this day. (See Chanukah meditations for how the candles lights remain lit and thus sum to these numbers)

It’s no coincidence the numerical value 156 is found 107 times in the Tanakh, as the sum of all the integers through 107 is 5778, the date given by the tzaddikim for the advent of the tree-of-life reality in our world.

We’ve just finished reading the 8 days of the special Chankuah Torah portions about the sacrifices from Numbers (B’midbar) 7:1-89 and 8:1-4, and while the 89 verses of chapter 7 obviously correspond to the gematria value of Chanukah (89), the 4 verses of chapter 8 correspond to the 4 periods of exile.

One simple way that these two portions are connected is in the sum of their two names. Naso has a numerical value of 351 and BeHa’alothekha has a final value of 1007, which together sum to 1358, or keter (1000) plus 358, the numerical value of Mashiach.

That would be fine and dandy but of little value to us, unless we also knew that encoded into the sacrifices for Chanukah, the festival of lights designed to bring Mashiach, was the date for Moshiach’s arrival.

Before we explain about some of the deeper meanings of the laundry list of sacrifices that were to be made by the 12 tribes in the Mishkan or Holy Temple, we should note the complete numerical value of the “Menorah” found in Chapter 8 in BeHa’alothekha is 359, the numerical value for Satan (the evil inclination) and 359 is also Mashiach in Aramaic, the language of the Zohar.

It’s common that the numerical values represent of the cure and the problem have the same exact value, which is why the Menorah (359) is our cure for overcoming Satan (359) in the same way Moshiach (358) is the cure for the snake (358).  Energy is usually  depicted as a wave so to visualize this picture a symmetrical wave along the X-Axis of a simple X-Y graph whereby the peaks reach 358 units high and the troughs 358 units low. Superimposing the energies cancels one another out.

Back to the sacrifices:1 Silver plate weighing 130 shekels (ShKL); 1 Silver bowl weighing 70 shekels; 1 Gold bowl weighting 10 shekels; 1 Young bull; 1 Ram; 1 male lamb (1 year old); 1 male goat; 2 oxen; 5 rams; 5 male goats; 5 male lambs (1 year old).

You have to admit it’s an odd group of items, but with everything in the Torah, there is always method in the madness. So adding them up, reveals that (130+70+10+1+1+1+1+2+5+5+5) = 231, as in the 231 Gates of Wisdom, which we know from Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah are the number of pairs of letters that can be made from the 22 letters of the Alef-bet, which he called the 22 building blocks of the universe.

Besides helping us to cancel out the sins that our souls committed when they were joined as one within Adam during the 130 years that he was separated from Eve, the 130 shekels of silver for the plate that we sacrifice each day corresponds to Jacob’s age when he entered Egypt to begin the exile in Egypt. This itself is no coincidence, as his 130 years also served to mitigate that self-same sin of Adams. 130 is also the value of Sinai, where the Israelites received the Torah 210 years later. Of course, if we add together the weight of the silver and gold (representing right and left column energies) we get (130+70+10) = 210.

By way of further explanation, the 70 shekels of silver correspond to the 70 family members with Jacob who entered Egypt. It also represents the 70 nations of the current exile and the year 70 CE when the Second Holy Temple was destroyed and the current exile began. And while the 10 shekels of gold correspond to the 10 Utterances received at Sinai and the 10 Sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-life, the full weight of metals was 210 shekels corresponding to the 210 years of the Egyptian exile.

The value of the word Shekel (ShKL) itself is 430, corresponds to the 430 years of the full first exile from the Covenant of Abraham, which began in 2018 HC and ended with the crossing of the YM Suf and the reception of the Torah at Sinai in 2448 HC.

Nevertheless, a deeper secret within this weight is that “210 shekels (ShKL)” are equivalent to a numerical value of 210 x 430 = 90,300 or 903 x 100, an 903 is the recognized sum of all the positive integers through 42, and since the spiritual tenet that nothing is ever lost is repeated over and over again within the concept of the Chanukah light, 903 is the full inclusive value of 42, encompassing all the energy of the integers that came before it. Going back to our depiction of energy as waves, we can picture 903 as the sum of the peaks of energy level 1, plus that of energy level 2, etc all the way through energy level 42.

As you recall, the Chanukah reading consists of 89 plus 4, or 93 verses, another allusion to 903. Moreover, the word Shekel is repeated 26 times during in the 93 verses of the full reading and is 26 the value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).

Furthermore, the word shekel (ShKL) spelled out (gematria milui) is 620, that of keter, the highest, crowning sefira (dimension).  Then in the often repeated phrase amongst these verses, Shekel B’Shekel H’Kodesh,” the word H’Kodesh (HKDSh) likewise has the gematria milui (spelled-out-value), including the kolel, of 1000, which, as stated above is also representative of keter.

Therefore, the phrase Shekel B’Shekel H’Kodesh can read as “the crown in the crown at the crown,” or “keter of keter of keter,” which is the highest level imaginable, or unimaginable to be more accurate.

As for the date for the arrival of Moshaich, the word H’kodesh in gematria milui sofit has the numerical value of 2008, as in the recent year 2008 CE, when from a financial standpoint the world began its implosion, when the world’s stock markets declined a collective 42%.

2008 CE would be, of course, 10 years before the prophesied time frame of 2017-2018 CE (5778 HC), and could be accounted for with the kolel, but there is much more concrete evidence that ties the sacrifices much more precisely to this very specific date.

For example, there are 41 combined occurrences of the 3 words in the phrase Shekel B’Shekel H’Kodesh found in the reading of the sacrifices.  Their average value 5778 , as in the year 5778 HC (2018 CE).

Shekel B’Shekel H’Kodesh

((15 x 409)+(12×430)+(14×432))/3 – 3 (kolel) = 5778

Then there are also 6 different phrases throughout the sacrifices that have a numerical value of 5777, (representing the year 2017 CE).

Of the 5845 verses in the Torah, there are only 13 incidences where the value of a phrase that occurs wholly within a single verse has the value of 5777 and one of those is verse Numbers 7:87 of the sacrifices. It is the summary verse for all the sacrifices: “…12 young bulls, 12 rams and 12 male lambs a year old, together with their grain offering. 12 male goats….”

This is significant because the geula was prophesied to most probably occur in the period 5777.78 to 5778.28 .

As for the year 5778, amongst the 93 verses of the sacrifices there are 16 occurrences of phrases (defined as a contiguous grouping or words) with the total value of 5778, the last of which is in the final verse of the sacrifices, Numbers 8:4, where we find the 22-word phrase “…the Menorah, just as The Lord Commanded Moses. This is how the menorah was made: It was made from hammered gold…had shown.”

As Volker just revealed to us in the comments to one of our recent blogs the number of verses in the Torah (5845) = the number of days in 16 years or (16 x 365.25 + 1) thus we have yet another deep connection between the Torah and 5778.

Could it be that we are to count 16 years from 9/11/01?

And not coincidentally, the number 84 (or twice 42) represents Pad, redemption, the union of the upper and lower Mem-Bet (42-Letter Names) necessary for the geula.

But possibly even more telling, of the 5845 verses in the Torah, 184 phrases wholly within verses, or 3.14% of the total verses, have a value of 2019, as in 2019 CE, the first year of the new era of Mashiach as prophesied by the tzaddikim. (See Nothing is Random in the Universe for detailed 2019 connection)

And of these 184 phrases, 35 are within the 93 verses of the sacrifices, an unfathomably large percentage. Moreover, 184 is the numerical value of Pkad, which chazal has independently connected to the coming of Mashiach and which we wrote about in a previous blog.

So of the 93 verses of the sacrifices, fully, 42 (1 + 6 = 35) are either connected to the year 2017 (5777), 2018 (5778), or 2019 and another (16 + 41) = 57 times are specifically to 5778 through the repeated occurrences of shekel b’shekel h’kodesh.

(5778-5779)

and

57 More Times the Sacrifices Connect to5778 (2018)

shekel b’shekel h’kodesh

Let me be clear: There is no statistical possibility that this is coincidence. And if you grabbed a calculator and did the math, you saw that 57/93 = Phi (.6180…).

Even more precisely, it worked out as 57/93 = .612903, or 612 (brit/covenant) and 903, yet another allusion to the mem-bet (42-Letter Name) as described above.

What’s the message?

We now know what to connect to on Chanukah and as we light the candles, but it may be that we’ll have to make sacrifices. But is that a strange concept?  As we’re about to write about the Erev Rav, is would anyone not be willing to make sacrifice to bring Mashiach (the Messiah) and the Tree-of-life reality, and live a life with limitations.

By the way, the 4 verses in Chapter 8 of Bmidbar (BMDBR, which incidentally permutes to (DBR MB, “say the 42″) corresponds to the 4 exiles. And at the end of the 4th exile, we must indeed make sacrifices. Each of the 4 types of animals of the sacrifices had a specific purpose to help the 4 types of man.  But the gold and silver had other significance too: to open up the 231 Gates of Wisdom for us.

The complete value (standard plus ordinal) of silver, representing gevura/judgment or left column energy is 203, as in the first 3 letters of the Torah. And the complete value of gold, representing chesed/loving-kindness, or right column energy, is 28, as in the 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse. All 12 tribes were instructed to give both gold and silver in the weights/proportions described above for the sacrifices.  And just as (130+70+10+1+1+1+1+2+5+5+5) = 231, representing all the sacrifices, the complete values of gold and silver together (28 + 203) = 231 as well.

Not only do these 231 Gates correspond with the 231 letter pair combinations amongst the 22 letters of the alef-bet but 231 is also the sum of the positive integers through 22, just as 903 was for 42.  Gold and silver, money, assets, mean nothing in the achievement of the Tree-of-life reality–it can’t be purchased, but chesed/loving-kindness, and helping one another, these are the commodities that count.

Remember, all the 12 tribes gave equally. The sacrifices are made for the community. It took more than Moses; it took unity to reach the Tree-of-life opportunity last time. And also to build the Holy Temples. And it was disunity that blew the opportunity and crumbled the Temples.

The hope for the community lies in our individual sacrifices for the sake of others, for the sake of our souls. Satan equates to selfish desires; Moshiach to overcoming them.

Happy Chanukah to All!

Chanukah Sameach!

Metatron in the Beginning and in the End of Days.

Metatron in the Beginning and in the End

Out next Chanukah revelation concerns the archangel Metatron (MTTRVN) of numerical value 314. The sages, tzaddikim and Zohar all tell us he was originally Enoch (ChNVC), the 7th in the lineage of Adam.

Zohar 43. Balak : 6.

Verse 86. “Enoch, who is Metatron,”

We can see from the following verses in the Torah that it was never stated that Enoch dies, only that he walked with God and was taken.

Genesis 5:23-24 “All of Enoch’s days were 365 years. Enoch walked with God, and was no more, because God had taken him.

These Zohar excerpts give it more color and speak of all the secrets that were revealed to Enoch and that subsequently were guarded by Mettatron and then revealed on a need-to-know basis.

Zohar Bereshit 51 474. “We have also been told that Chanoch had a book, which originated from the same place as that of the generations of Adam. And this book contains the inner secrets of wisdom. He was taken from this earth to become a heavenly angel. Thus, it is written: ‘And he was not; for Elohim took him’ (Beresheet 5:24). He is the youth, THAT IS, HE IS ALWAYS CALLED A YOUTH, as the verse states: ‘Train up (Heb. chanoch) a child in the way he should go’ (Mishlei 22:6), INDICATING THAT CHANOCH IS THE YOUTH BECAUSE HE BECAME MINISTERING LAD TO THE SHECHINAH.

475. All the supernal secrets were delivered into his hands and he, in turn, delivered them to those who merited them. Thus, he performed the mission THAT THE HOLY ONE, BLESSED BE HE, ASSIGNED TO HIM. One thousand keys were delivered into his hands and he takes one hundred blessings every day and creates unifications for his Master. The Holy One, blessed be He, took him from this world so that he would serve him above. The text refers to this when it reads: ‘And he was not; for Elohim took him.’

476. Since it was given to him, it is called the book of Chanoch. When the Holy One, blessed be He, took him, He showed him all the supernal mysteries, including the mystery of the Tree of Life, with its leaves and branches in the middle of the garden. We find all those secrets in his book, ALL THAT ELOHIM SHOWED HIM WHEN HE TOOK HIM TO HEAVEN. Happy are those of exalted piety to whom the supernal wisdom has been revealed and from whom it will never be forgotten, as it is written: ‘The secret of Hashem is with them that fear him; and he will reveal to them his covenant’ (Tehilim 25:14).”

As we’ll get into in a moment, it is no coincidence that Enoch was the 7th in the line of Adam, or that he lived 365 years, with 365 being universally agreed as a reference to the solar year.

So who is Metatron?

Zohar 49. Ki Tetze : 28: 138. “It is so THAT METATRON IS SHADAI when the Holy One, blessed be He, descends TO BRIYAH to rule over the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, good being Metatron and evil Samael, who is a devil, the king of demons. Metatron is an angel, the king of angels, but from the aspect of the Tree of Life the name Shadai is Yesod OF ATZILUT..” [the gateway to the uppermost world].

Shadai is the name of G-d (ShDY) found on all Mezuzot which the Jews place on their doorposts. It has the same numerical value as Metatron, 314, as guardian of the gates.

We’ll reinforce the connection from the Zohar linking Enoch (Metatron) as governor ,if you will, of the 7 sefirot (Zeir Anpin/Malchut) and particularly as guardian of the entrance way through Yesod, but for an understanding of the deepest hidden secrets we need to turn to the Tikkune Zohar, chapter 22 of the 70 chapters revealing the 70 faces of Creation.

It’s in the Tikkunei Zohar that we learn that the 6 letters of the Name Metatron (MTtTtRVN) should be expanded into a matrix of 42, similar to the 42-Letter Name of God (Ana B’koach).  In this case, the matrix would be comprised of the name Metatron (MTtTtRVN) and then the name stretched out over the subsequent 6 dimensions, something like this:

MTt Tt R  V  N

M M M M M M

TtTtTtTtTtTt

TtTtTtTtTtTt

R  R  R  R  R  R

V  V  V  V  V  V

N  N  N  N N N

In The Genesis Prayer and Nothing is Random in the Universe we discuss in great depth the secrets of 42, Pi (314) and their connection to the Torah’s first verse and also the revelations of the advent of Moshiach in 5778, so we won’t go into it again here, other than to point out again that the number 9/(42-letter Name) = exactly 70 + 3.14159..(Pi).

What we do want to reveal is that while the name Metatron has the numerical value of 314, this 42 letter name of Metatron has a total numerical value of 2198, or 7 x 314.

And why is this significant?

It’s not just because 314+ 42 = 358, the numerical value of Mashiach, of that the Torah has exactly 358 phrases of the numerical value 314, indelibly connecting Moshiach with Metatron, but because there are precisely 2198 letter Zayin(s) in the Torah and the numerical value of Zayin is 7.

Speaking of 7, Zohar Bereshit 1:4. tells us why 7 is so important: “There are seven sacred chambers and seven levels above, which are the secrets of supernal faith, NAMELY BINAH. And there are seven chambers below, IN MALCHUT, similar to those above, IN BINAH. Six of these chambers are just as they are above, CORRESPONDING TO THE SIX SFIROT OF ZEIR ANPIN, but one CHAMBER, CORRESPONDING TO BINAH, IS hidden and concealed.”

Keep in mind that this hidden chamber corresponds to the 7th millennium and the time of Moshiach when Binah Chamber will be open to us.

And at the end of the description of the 7 chambers, the Zohar (Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai) has this further to say about the 7th:

Zohar Bereshit B 19:53. “The same can be found in the seven compartments of the lower land, which are all similar to the SEVEN COMPARTMENTS of the world above. And in all OF THE SEVEN COMPARTMENTS BELOW, there are ANGELS in the shape of humans,…” Not, just Metatron, but we’ll be writing about this shortly as well: how the angels have intervened at key points to keep us on track.

Let’s recap:

A) Enoch was the 7th in the line of Adam: of which Noach was the 10th, an allusion to the completion of 10 sefirot/dimensions; Abraham was the 20th, an allusion to Keter (Esrim, 20); and Moses was the 26th, an allusion to the YHVH (26); so obviously placement is important and not random..

B) Enoch became Metatron of numerical value 314, and thus connected to Pi, which makes a line into a circle, which we know from Rav Ashlag’s work on the 10 Luminous Emanations is how the light enters and fills our universe.

C) Metatron controls the 7 dimensions and gates from our would to the upper ones.  We also know from Abraham, the Patriach in his Sefer Yetzirah, that there are 22 building blocks of the universe, namely the 22 Hebrew letters, 7 of which are called doubles and 7 of which connect us to the 7 planets, and that 22/7 = 3.14..

D) We know that both 314 and 42 are connected together to each other and that they connect us to Creation and that the 42-Letter Name, is like Metatron, our bridge between our world and the upper ones, namely Binah.

E) We know that 314 and 42, and thus Metatron are connected to Moshiach, 358.

F) We know that the name Metatron(MTtTtRVN) expands into 42 letters totaling 2198 or 314 x 7, and that there are 2198 letter Zayin(s) in the Torah and the numerical value of Zayin is 7, meaning the entire Torah was written (conceived) with Metatron in mind, and that there is probably a deeper hidden meaning to 2198 as well, behind the total gematria of the Torah letters being 21009826.

G) Enoch’s (Metatron’s physical) life is connected to 365 years or days as in year, there may be a connection to the end-of-day and the advent of Moshiach that he is obviously connected with. Incidentally, 365 is 7 more than 358, an important point not to be overlooked.

H) If 2198 were a year, it would be 2198 CE, or 5958, 42 years shy of the year 6000 HC, and the 7th millennium. Therefore since the 42 letter of Metatron including the kolel are 2198 + 42 = 2240, they are also equivalent to the year 6000 HC.

So why are there 2 dates, 5778 and 6000 for the advent of Moshiach?

Why indeed? The period between the two prophesied dates is 222 years? So let’s go back to the Zohar and see why there are two dates and why they are 222 years apart. We’ll give you another explanation gleaned from the Torah portion Miketz later in the week.

21. Trumah : 56. Verse 598. If you ask: Metatron serves in the Tabernacle above AND NOT MICHAEL? HE ANSWERS: The tabernacle is of Metatron and Michael the High Priest is the one who serves in the Tabernacle of Metatron, as the High Priest serves above in another Tabernacle that is concealed and not revealed, which is the secret of the World to Come, WHICH IS BINAH. There are two tabernacles. One is concealed, BINAH, and one is the Tabernacle of Metatron. There are two priests, MEANING THE ATTRIBUTES OF CHESED THAT IS CALLED ‘PRIEST’. One is the primordial light, NAMELY CHESED OF ZEIR ANPIN, and one is Michael, the High Priest below.

We know there are 2 Moshiachs (Bed David and Ben Joseph) so we understand that there are 2 Tabernacles to be reveled,  one through Metatron in the year 6000 HC, as has been discussed, and the other through Michael, Archangel and protector of Israel, which according to prophecy will be in 5778, 70 years after Israel became a nation.

Therefore 6000 years will be the full length of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.

As for the 222 year differential we must first look to the name of the beast.

Zohar 42. Chukat : 5:29.” AFTER ZEIR ANPIN AND MALCHUT DRINK, ‘they give to drink to every wild beast’ that which is written: ‘and from thence it was parted, and branched into four streams (lit. ‘heads’)’ (Beresheet 2:10). These four heads are ‘every wild (lit. ‘field’, Heb. sadai) beast,’… which is METATRON that receives and perfects IN HIMSELF the Name from Yesod, the Foundation of the world. This is SINCE THE NAME SHADAI IS IN YESOD OF ZEIR ANPIN, AND METATRON, BEING A CHARIOT TO YESOD OF ZEIR ANPIN, RECEIVES THIS NAME.”

Keep in mind that the Torah counts the time to the final redemption in jubilee years (50-year interval) and there are exactly 66.6 jubilee years from the reception of the 10 Commandments at Mt Sinai, until 5778 and 70.2 jubilee years from that date (2448) until 2198 CE. 702 is the gematria value of Shabbat, the 7th day, which is what the period of the final redemption is called.

So what about the 222 years?

In  Zohar 44. Pinchas : 45. “The Chariot of EzekielVerse 248. “When Ezekiel saw the Shechinah among the Klipot, THAT IS TO SAY, AMONG THE GARMENTS, he saw with her ten Sfirot, without any separation whatsoever, and these are the brain that is among all of them. He saw them within the earthly river K’var (Caf Bet Resh) [222], NAMELY, THE EARTHLY CHARIOT (RESH CAF BET) [222], NAMELY, THE LETTERS OF K’VAR REARRANGED) OF METATRON.

So Metatron is the Chariot, as previously defined in the Zohar, and the value of chariot is 222, meaning Metatron will rule over the earthly plain another 222 years past the time of Moshiach Ben David in 5778.

The same Zohar portion continues as it reveals yet another equation about Metatron and the end-of-days, “That is, ‘The Chariots of Elohim are twice ten thousand, thousands upon (Heb. Shin’an) thousands’ (Tehilim 68:18). ‘twice ten thousand’ are twenty thousand. From this you should deduct two that are missing, AS SHIN’AN IS SPELLED THE SAME AS ‘SHE’EINAN’ (MISSING). ‘(SHIN’AN) THOUSANDS’ ARE THE MISSING TWO THOUSANDS. Eighteen thousand remain, which is as the number of the eighteen (Chet Yud) worlds. THIS IS YESOD, WHICH IS CALLED ‘CHAI’ (LIT. ‘LIVE’ – CHET YUD,), which includes the ten Sfirot, attired in the Tet Tet (nine + nine = eighteen) of Metatron (Mem Tet Tet Resh Vav Nun). And this Tet Tet is taken from the word totafot (lit. ‘frontlets’), about which it is said: ‘and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes’ (Devarim 6:8). Who are the eyes? They are those above, about which it is said: ‘the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of Elohim’ (Yechezkel 1:1). These are the ten visions of Metatron, whom Ezekiel saw as a candle within a lantern, nine OF THE VISIONS being clear, with one being vague.”

Take the 2000, (SHIN’AN THOUSANDS” ARE THE MISSING TWO THOUSANDS), then add the “attired in the Tet Tet (nine + nine = eighteen),” 18, and we get 2018. Then take the 2018 and add the NAMELY, THE EARTHLY CHARIOT (RESH CAF BET), the Chariots of Elohim, 222, and we get 2240, the year 6000 HC.

This date of 6000 HC is very significant as will be revealed in our next installment of Chanukah revelations about the 2 dates for the windows of the Tree-of-Life consciousness.  Obviously whether you work towards Moshiach in 7 years time or in 229 years makes a big difference.

To be continued…

Happy Chanukah

A Newly Revealed Gematria Cipher Takes Our Understanding of the Torah to a New Level

A new and very logical gematria cipher has recently been revealed and with it many amazing clues of the Torah have been deciphered. It is almost needless to say that it is only new to us, and is actually as ancient as Hebrew itself. This revelation is dedicated to the elevation of the soul of Chiel Mordechai Ben Abraham, may he study peacefully in the highest palaces. With these new revelations, more pieces of the grand puzzle of our universe fall neatly into place and heretofore-mysterious aspects of the Torah have become clear.

This gematria cipher is quite simple compared to most of them and simply uses the 5 final letters in a slightly different way. The standard gematria sofit takes into account the larger values of the special 5 final letters of the Hebrew alef-bet (C= 500, M= 600, N=700, P=800, and Z=900) for a total of 3500, while their standard values are normally counted as (C= 20, M= 40, N=50, P=80, and Z=90) for a total of 280, but since the letters represent energy and energy is never lost, another way to count them includes both values, thus treating the final shaped letters as extensions of the originals for a total of 280 + 3500 = 3780. Many of you may recognize this as 10 x 378, the numerical value of the word chashmol, the angelic cloaking that is today known as electricity, but today we’ll look straight to the heart of the Torah’s structure and leave the numerous other application of this cipher aside for now.

As usual, we turn to the seed level of the Torah to seek out wisdom, whether in the 73 faces of the Torah’s first verse or in the 32 paths of the letter Alef that preceded the Torah. The Torah (Bible’s) first verse states “In the beginning G-d created Heaven and Earth,” and the first word of this omniscient verse is

Bereshit (BREShYT), which is broken down to the prefix Bet (B) meaning “in” and REShYT meaning “Beginning.” The numerical value of REShYT is 911—yes, as in 9/11—but more germane is that utilizing the newly discovered ancient gematria, 911 represents the letter Alef. The letter Alef (ELP) is spelled out Alef-Lamed-Pe) whose numerical value is typically 1+30+80 or 111, but when we add in the 800 for the Pe sofit inclusive) we get 111 + 800 = 911, and thus the first verse of the Torah can be read as “In Alef G-d created Heaven and Earth.

We know from the tzaddikim that the letter Alef(E) is constructed of an upper letter Yud(Y), two parallel diagonal letter Vavs(V,V) and a lower letter Yud(Y), and that we can infer from this that the upper Yud created Heaven and the lower Yud created Earth in a spiritual (or energetic) sense. Moreover, we know from the Arizal that the Letter Alef also represents the numerical value of 1000, as Alef (ELP) and Elef (ELP), meaning 1000) are spelled exactly alike. So it’s surely no coincidence that the 5th word of the verse, HaSha’im (HShMYM), meaning Heaven, has a numerical value of 1000, utilizing the newly revealed gematria along with the kolel for the 5 letters: 395+600+5 letters = 1000

Likewise the new value for the 7th and final word in the verse, Earth, H’Aretz (HERZ) is 296+900+4 letters = 1200. So when we add “Heaven and Earth” together with the letter Vav(V), the prefix for “and”, we get  (HShMYM  V’HERZ) = 1000 + 1200 + 7 = 2207. This includes the kolel for each of the 10 letters in the phrase.

Now, to most people the number 2207 would be insignificant and random, but to readers of There’s Nothing Random about the Universe, the number 2207 represents 5778/phi2 or more specifically, exactly 2207.000 .

What does this mean?

First, the basics: 5778 is the Hebrew year given by Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag, and others for the geula, the final redemption; and Phi (1.61803398…) is the primordial mathematical constant that controls harmonic spiraling growth throughout our universe from the number of petals on our flowers to the shape of the Milky Way.  Moreover, since 5778.000 is exactly phi18, then the number, or year, 2207.000 is precisely two iterations of Phi away from 5778.000. Observed geometrically, 5778 is exactly 2 turns of the spiral further along the cosmic spiral of time than 2207. The number 5778 is a natural harmonic progression of 2207; therefore, the Tree-of-life reality is a natural progression of “Heaven and Earth,” and the first verse of the Torah may have been designed to show us that.

2207.000 expanded 2 Revolutions along the spiral Phi = 5778.000

Since the letter Alef represent the 32 Paths of the Tree-of-Life and the 10 letters of “Heaven and Earth) also represent the 10 sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-Life, we now see a hint that the Tree-of-life reality, which was present at the dawn of creation, will have to go through 2 more iterations (expansions) to reach the geula in 5778, which is in actuality no different than the tzaddikim have explained numerous times. After Adam, and the start of the 5778-year calendar, the next opportunity for the Tree-of-life consciousness came in 2448 at Mt Sinai, which was exactly 66.6 jubilee years before 5778, when the third cosmic opening for the Tree-of-life reality is destined to occur.

And while probably just coincidental that 22/7 = 3.1428, a close approximation of Pi (3.14159…), through simple gematria the Torah’s 1st verse of 7 words and 28 letters yields an even closer approximation, 3.14155, as explained The Genesis Prayer.  The important concept to keep in mind is the Torah as the nexus between the physical world that’s structurally guided by Phi and Pi and the spiritual world that’s guided by the Tree-of-life.

Speaking of the Tree-of-life, Etz Chaim (AZ ChYYM), its numerical value, utilizing the newly revealed gematria, is 1728 and with 1 for the kolel it equals 1729, as in the 1729 words in the Torah that have a numerical value of 26, that of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).

And as for the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), there are 1820 of them in the Torah and 1820 just happens to be the numerical value, utilizing the new gematria, of the famous verse that Hillel and other sages have said encapsulates the entire Torah, Vayikra 19:18, paraphrased as “Love they neighbor as thyself,” which is the essence of the consciousness that will lead to the Tree-of-life reality.  The number 1820 is not only 70 x 26, but it’s also the number of letters in the 28 prophetic verses of Ezekiel 37 about the “dry bones” and the geula in the end of days.

You can add 19+18 in Vayikra 19:18 and get 37 and say “wow,” but a much bigger Wow! moment comes when we compare when we apply the newly revealed gematria to the collective words in the entire Torah.

First of all, the standard gematria gives us a total value of 21009826 and while  (2+1+0+0+9+8+2+6) = 28, as in the number of letters in the Torah’s first verse, the product of those same digits is (2*1*0*0*9*8*2*6) = 1728, as in the value of Tree-of-life using the new gematria. And just to keep us honest, another deeply revealing form of gematria gives us 4(P(21009826)/ ∑(21009826)) = 4(1728/28) = 2.802828, not so dissimilar from the square root of the exact number of words in the Torah, 282.8002828, but we’ve discussed elsewhere about 28 being a core Torah concept and won’t go further with it today, except to say that 28 x 26 (YHVH) = 616, the numerical value of “The Torah,” and the number of times Moses’ name (MShH) is mentioned in the Torah.

Nevertheless, it’s when we apply the newly revealed gematria that we discover that the square root of the total gematria value (33640626) of the 304,805 letters in the Torah is 5800.0054, which is pretty astonishing considered that exact collective number of words, letters and verses in the Torah is exactly 58.

And what ties these two gematria ciphers even closer together and ties them both to the main quantitative (or structural) elements of the Torah is that while the square root of 58, the sum of the words, verses, and letters in the Torah, is 625 and 5/8 = .625, and while 625 is the numerical value of H’Keter(“The Crown”) or highest and crowning sefira (dimension), 21009826/33640626 = .625 (approximately) = 5/8.

Moreover, while the sum of the 22 spelled out Hebrew letters is 4248, it becomes 10048 when the final letters are considered in the spelling, in other words exactly 5800 more.

And in case you didn’t do the math: 5800 – 22 = 5778

Thus, it’s pretty obvious in these days of knowledge that the revelations of formerly concealed gematria ciphers are opening up whole new avenues of Torah exploration for us, and that simple names, like Abraham, whose value was 248, now take on new meaning for us as 848, or twice 424, which is the value of Moshiach Ben David.

As revealed in The Divine Calendar the Covenant of Abraham (also knows as the Covenant of Halves) occurred in 2018 HC.  And 2018 CE is the swiftly approaching Hebrew year 5778, the year dictated by the Torah’s structure, its gematria values and by the 22 letters of the Alef-bet. And in case you think this is all utter nonsense, ask yourself why then is it also the surface temperature of the Sun (5778 K). Did man create the Sun as well?

Ask yourself this as well: If G-d’s Covenant with Abraham in 2018 was known as the Covenant of Halves, what is half of 848? You already know the answer in your heart: 424, Mashiach Ben David.

We can close our minds to the depth of the Torah and its relationship to the underlying structure of the universe and G-d’s designs, or we can open them up and try to grasp the endless dimensions of the Tree-of-life reality.  Either way, it’s through the burning desire of our hearts for the truth that will draw us closer to it.

Since writing this post just a few days ago, many new ancient secrets have been revealed, which we hope to share shortly, including the 42 letters of the Tree-of-Life hidden write under our noses, and a new and very specific clarification to the Zohar’s lengthy discussions about the end-of-days (final redemption).
