Abraham and the Planet Jupiter; Foretelling the Final Redemption.

Abraham’s journey began with the planet Jupiter; so did ours.  Who knew it would take so long? Regarding our last post on Jupiter and the 40 Days and 40 Nights, David wrote into me with a great insight:

How can we connect this to the fact that Avraham’s astrological array was Jupiter and Hashem moved it from east to west so that it doesnt influence Avraham’s ability to have children? seemingly this means that all his descendants are also under Jupiter’s astrological sign and affected by it.

source Shabbos 156B ““Who awakened Jupiter from the east?”

To understand this you must begin with Shabbos 156A, nevertheless, the Gemara connects that moment when G-d had Abraham gaze up into the stars to Abraham’s age (70) at the Covenant of Halves which occurred in 2018 HC, and this is especially noteworthy given that 2018 CE is 5778 HC, which as per the referenced article just published is the date revealed by both Jupiter’s orbit, the Sun’s temperature and the phrase “40 days and 40 nights,” 5-778.

And more so given that the exact Torah phrase used for “70 years (VShBAYM ShN-H)” has the same exact gematria as the “40 days and 40 nights” or “778 plus the final Hey(5) of Malchut” just like Jupiter’s orbit.

The real significance though is that Israel will be 70 years a nation in 5778 (2018 CE), just as Abraham was 70 years old in 2018 HC. And according to Rav Ashlag (HaSulam) the Covenant will then be fulfilled, coinciding with the Zohar that also enlightens us to that 70 year period prior to the final redemption.

One reference to this is found in Zohar Mishpatim (Ra’aya Meheimna-the deepest secrets section)17, 473-475, regarding “the 70 words in the psalm: ‘May Hashem hear you in the day of trouble (Tehilim 20:2), ” Rav Ashlag explains that this alludes to the 70 sounds made by the expectant mother about to give birth, “being also the 70 sounds given out by the Schechinah for the distress of the children of Yisrael prior to redemption-considered ‘a day of trouble’.” The Zohar intimating a conversation between Moses and Elijah, continues, “Why does She cry out? It is known that among Yisrael there are masters of Torah and kings from the aspect of the star of dawn, namely the Shechinah. There are two grads: morning and dawn, about which it is said: ‘at Your right hand are pleasure evermore (Netzach)” [Tehilim 16:11]. The morning of Abraham, Chesed, appears on the Day of Redemption. But the dawn precedes the Day of Redemption, being Netzach, as the Shechinah from this aspect is called ‘the star  of dawn’.”

In the next paragraph, the Zohar continues explaining, “Hence the chief musician [lamenatzeach] is spelled Netzach [forever] and Lamed-Mem [70], which are the 70 sounds that the doe  [star] of dawn cries out for her children when the darkness of exile overcomes them, the darkness of dawn taking place in the last 70 years. At that time will be fulfilled in Yisrael: ‘Like a woman with child, that draws near the time of delivery, is in pain, and cries out in her pangs; so have we been in your sight, Hashem’ [Yeshayah 26:17]…”

“..The morning alludes to the right hand of Abraham, Messiah, Son of David, who stems from Judah [Yehudah] about whom it is written, ‘Judah is a lion’s whelp’ [Bereshit 49:9]. For this reason, ‘as Hashem lives: lie down until the morning’. [Ruth 3:13].

The Zohar, as always is very deep and cryptic though we can’t miss the obvious allusions that the last 70 years will be painful and include all the birth pangs of Moshiach. So it’s interesting that of the 42 times (Yes, 42 as in the 42-Letter Name, the understanding of which chazal will bring about the final redemption) the 778 plus hey (5) phrase is used in the Torah, the first time is in conjunction with 70 years in Genesis 5:31 with Lemekh(LMC)–kabbalistic code for king(melech, MLC)–who lived for 777 years. And notice that Lemekh(LMC) begins with the Lamed-Mem that the Zohar was referring to above.

And it’s even more significant that the next time it was used was in paragraph 42, Genesis 12:4, when Abraham was 70 years and 5, which is what the Gemara was referring to, in 2018 HC.

As my son pointed out to me at breakfast this morning, Jupiter’s days are 10 hrs long, a possible connection to the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-life.  What the full connection to Jupiter is yet to be seen, but as the 70 supernal ministers are removed above, so are their respective counterparts in the nations below, and so far since the start of this year 1/1/11, Lebanon, Tunisia, Egypt have fallen, and Jordan, Yemen and Afghanistan are in the process. The prophecies of the Zohar and tzaddikim are being fulfilled.

When the Torah connects the dots, it does it for a reason, and not an insignificant one.  Over the next few weeks we’ll be unraveling more of these trails.

40 Days and 40 Nights; They are longer than We Thought.

As a brief interlude in our series on the secrets of the 10 Commandments and also of the Shema Yisrael, we wanted to point a hidden secret in the phrase 40 days and 40 nights that appeared at the end of this week’s portion, Mishpatim.

8 times the phrase 40 days and 40 nights, or arba’im yom v’arba’im lilah (ERBAYM YVM VERBAYM LYLH) appears in the Torah. The first 2 times it refers to the flood that wiped clean the planet and the rest of the times it refers to Moses ascent on Sinai to bring back the 2 tablets.

Let’s note first that the letter Yud(Y) is present in each word, (ERBAYM YVM VERBAYM LYLH)totaling the value 40, so obviously not a coincidence. These 4 Yuds (YYYY) correspond to the 4 Yuds for healing which is turn trace their source to the 4 Yuds that begin the 4 aspects of the Tetragrammaton (AV, SAG, MAH, BAN).

Nevertheless, what we really wanted to point out is that like the orbit of planet Jupiter, the 5th planet, whose orbit is 778.5 million Km around the Sun, whose temperature is 5778 K, the numerical value of the phrase 40 days and 40 nights, or arba’im yom v’arba’im lilah (ERBAYM YVM VERBAYM LYLH) is 778 though the final Hey, whose numerical value is 5.

Since in Hebrew dates are described by their final 3 digits (778) and since the final H (5) represents the world of Malchut, our world, as it does in the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), this designation within phrase 40 days and 40 Nights makes total sense.

Now, the 20 (esrim) letters in the phrase connect it to keter, the highest sefira (dimension) and the complete gematria value (ordinal plus standard) plus the kolel for the letters also connects it to keter, because it works out to 1000, but there is still something about these 4 words that troubles me.

They are mentioned 8 times and refer to events that happened in 1658 and 2448 respectively, 790 years apart. When we add up the gematria sofit of the letters without that same final H, we get 2458, which is 10 more than the year 2448, but it does makes the difference a more perfect 800.

We are used to things in the Torah working our perfectly and when the don’t there is usually a reason for it.  I mean 8 times the 80 (40 plus 40) days/nights are mentioned over 800 years would have been perfect, especially since Noach has the numerical value 58 and there are exactly 58 words, verses and letters in the Torah (the 5 Books of Moses).

Of course, Noach and the flood was the 10th generation from Adam, and the 10 Commandments were received in 2448, and they were both really about the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-life, so since 5778 is the year 2018 and 2018 is 10 years after 2008 and 5778 is 3330 years after 2448 and 3330/1658 = 2.008, maybe all 3 dates and the phrase 40 days and 40 nights hint to the rectification of the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-life in the final 10 years to 2018 (5-778).

We’ll return to part III in our series on the 10 Commandments shorty as they are truly the highpoint in the Torah and for us, contain the most important revelation to date.

Shavua Tov

The Ten Commandments, Part II – The Gates Open Through a Tiny Word.

In the first installment in this series of articles on the Ten commandments, we established that they were linked with Keter, the highest sefira (Dimension) of all 10 dimensions of the Tree-o-life, and that beginning with the encoding in its first 3 words, “I am God, your Lord” they further link our generation to the 3rd opportunity to receive the Tree-of-life reality in the next few years.

As for the 2nd time that cosmic window opened, it was 66.6 jubilee years ago, when G-d chose to recite the 10 Utterances.  The first time occurred a total of 115.6 jubilees years ago. To understand that you must be able to think of time as fluid and space as collapsible, and reality as we know it as an illusion. In other words, you must be able to perceive the tree-of-life reality that was offered to our ancestors back in 2448 HC, 49 jubilee years after Creation .

In the 20th chapter and 54th Paragraph of Exodus (Shmot/Names), 600,000 Israelites and 4 times as many erev rav (known as the the people) stood poised at Mt Sinai.

This was after the Zohar tells us Moses received the 173 Keys to Heaven (the 42-letter Name); after the rectification of the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-life through the 10 plague, as explained by the Arizal; after the tools of the 42-Letter Name (Mem-Bet) and the 72 Names (Ayin-Bet) were given to Moses and the Israelites when they cried out to G-d; after they split of the Red (endless) Sea; and after they completed the cleansing process through the appreciation, tshuva, and tools embedded in the “Song of the Sea,” the Israelites were ready to receive the 10 Utterances directly from G-d, thus completing their ascension to Keter. That was the plan.

Keter

The 10 Utterances are found at chapter 20 in parsha Yitro of Shmot (Exodus) and the letter Yud (Y) of numerical value 10 is a direct substitute for the number 10 in the 10 Utterances (Commandments).  Moreover, the letter Yud (YVD) when spelled out has the numerical value 20, the same as the chapter the 10 Utterances are found in. This is significant because the number 20, esrim, has the numerical value of 620, that of Keter, the crowning, hightest sefira (dimension). Moreover,Yitro (YTRV), Moses’ father-in-law, not only begins with the letter Yud–actually the only one of the 54 Torah portions to begin with Yud–but it has the gematria value of 616, the same as H’Torah (the Torah). And when we add the kolel of the 4 letters we get  616 +4 = 620, or Keter once again. And that’s just the start.

Two Moments in Time Linked Together through a Single Window

That there are 9 verses spanning paragraphs 54 to 62 of Shmot (Exodus) is no coincidence. Readers of this blog know by now the formulas of the sum of positive integers through 107 = 5778; and 54 x 107 = 5778, the year the tzaddikim prophesied for the arrival of Moshiach and the geula (final redemption); and also that the surface temperature (radiance) of the Sun, representing the King and Zeir Anpin, is 5778 K, while its core temperature is 156 million K, with 156 being the gematria value of Joseph, representing Yesod of Zeir Anpin.

But what hasn’t been revealed yet is that the numerical value 54 is found 156 times in the Torah and that the Name Dan (DN)–the initials that Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah (The Book of Formation) says would lead to Mashiach–of numerical value 54, is found 26 times, corresponding to the value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH). And consequently that 54 + 156 = 210, as in the 210 years of Exile in Egypt that just ended prior to the 10 Utterances.

And as most students of Torah know that the Torah is divided in 54 parashot (portions), so this being paragraph 54, coupled with the value of Yitro’s name,  is most probably a hint that the whole Torah is about to be received, not just a few commandments to behave civilly.

The number 54 also has the distinction of being half of 108, the numerical value of the infamous golden calf.  The reason that this connection is so significant will be revealed shortly. And since the number 107 is integrally associated with 5778, and thus the reception of Moshiach, that 108 is 1 beyond it, is significant as well. Nevertheless, for the moment it’s important to note that the first letter on the 10 Utterances is the 107007th letter in the Torah, or looked at another way, 107 x 1000 + 7 (representing Keter (1000) and the 7 sefirot of Zeir Anpin).

And for its part, 62, as in the 62nd and final paragraph of the 10 Utterances, it is the key to understanding what is really going on in the section. For starters. there are 62 letter Yuds, of numerical value 10, within these 9 paragraphs. Now, the letter Yud (Y) is the first letter of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) and is associated with the level of Chochma (wisdom), the 9th and 2nd highest sefira (dimension), and those 62 Yuds have a total numerical value of 620, that of keter (crown), the highest sefira, the place the Israelites had reached as G-d spoke to them.  This also means the Yuds reprsent exactly 1/10th the letters in the 10 Commandments.

But the icing on this keter cake is found in that there are 620 letters in these 9 short paragraphs.

Moreover, the sum of the ordinal values of those 620 letters works out to 11 x 620 + 1 (kolel), making the 10 Commandments also representative of the full 11 sefirot, when the balancing or reservoir of knowledge sefira (dimension), Da’at, is included.

And of the 10 Utterances, 8 really begin with the word Lo (LE), “don’t,” which is EL (G-d) backwards and these 8 words total 248, the value of Abraham, of mercy, and of the Earth’s reflected radiance back to the sun (248.5 K), but also 248 = 4 x 62. Obviously, this small 620 letter section of the Torah is quite special and unique.

Let’s talk about this word Lo (LE), meaning “don’t, because it is so ubiquitous amongst the 172 (132+3) words and 13 verses of the 10 Commandments. It’s found a total of 13 times, connecting it to the concept of Oneness (Echad) and love (Ahava), whose Hebrew translations have the value 13.

There seems to be a pattern developing as the numerical value of Lo (LE) is 31, or 13 reversed, its ordinal value is, well, 13.

Now in verse Exodus 20:6, where it says, “I show love for thousands of generations,” the words for love and thousands both contain the prefix Lamed, making both words actually begin with LE: (LEHBY, L’ahavi and LELPYM, L’alaphim).

This phrase Chesed L’alaphim is actually at the heart of the 13 attributes of G0d and both the Zohar and the Arizal translate it to G-d will show mercy for 2000 years, as we’ve previously written about.

With these 2 additional Lo (LE) and 3 others that are concealed at the beginning of various words in these 13 verses we have a total of 18, which is universally knows as the value of Chai (life).

Now, the sages tell us that the final letters point towards the future and in summing up the gematria of the final letters in 18 words that Lo (LE) appears within the 10 Commandments we get a total of 2028, which is significant because we know that 2018 CE (or 2028 – 10 (kolel for 10 Commandments) is the prophesied year 5778 HC.

And also because 2028 breaks down to 2000 + 18 + 10, reminding us of what the Arizal and the Zohar said about 2000 years amongst the 18 words of the 13 attributes. We can now more fully see the connection between the 13 pure Lo (LE) and 18 total Lo (LE) with the 18 words of the 13 attributes of G-d, in this the 20th Chapter of Exodus.

And if we add the two other words in this 620 letter section of the Torah that begin and end with L and E respectively, (LShVE, lashav) then the full 20 concealed Lo (LE) total 20 x 31 or a perfect 620.

Everything in the Torah has a purpose, both a revealed purpose and then multiple layers of concealed ones.  We can look at the 10 Commandments as moral compasses or we can look at them as gateways into the 10 dimensions of the Tree-of-life.  For 66.6 jubilee years (3330 years) most of us have seen them as moral guides, it’s time to really accept them.  28 generations ago we were invited in and the people replied that G-d was too loud for them.

And by the way, in case we missed it, the 28 generations was the The Divine Calendarhidden meaning behind the reference to 2000 generations, which is one of the reasons why Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai (author of the Zohar) and the Arizal recognized it as 2000 years, but, of course, they knew the Divine Calendar and knew when the 2000 years would begin and end.

So just to wrap us this part of the series, we should note that when we add 1 for the kolel to the 172 words in this section, we get 173 words, which not only hints at the 42-Letter Name through its small gematria value of 173, which are incidentally the 173 keys given to Moses, but taking the letters of the section over the words gives us 620/173 = 3.58, and 358, as we know, is the numerical value of Moshiach, the messiah.

This is what we can receive when we enter the 10 Commandments, instead of just follow them (very important too).

Lo (LE) is tied for being the shortest word in the Torah, but through this small doorway a vast universe awaits.  The Hebrew word for heart is very similar Lev (LB). Just because one translates into English as “don’t”, don’t let yourself be deceived by the illusion that one doesn’t stem from the other and LE is at the heart of Keter from where the love flows.

And then to complete the picture, the 13 verses in this section further links it to the 13 times that words with a numerical value of 173 appear in the Torah. Every wire in this section is very much alive and burning bright.  Let it burn bright in our hearts as well.

Part III will continue shortly.

Standing at the Top – The 10 Commandments

The 10 Commandments (Utterances) began in Exodus 20:2 with G-d saying, “I am God, your Lord (Anochi Adonai Elohaycha, ENCY YHVH ELHYC). These 13 letters numerically translates to 107 plus 546, or 653 plus the kolel of 13 (letters) for a total of 666.  Got your interest? Still think 666 is some number of a beast? How about 546 being the sum of the initials of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-life? Do you think those 10 dimensions can somehow be tied into the 10 Commandments (Utterances)? And that 13 is the numerical value of echad “One” as in “G-d is One?” And knowing all this, is it just coincidental that the first 2 words (“I am G-d) of the 10 Commandments, the highest point of the Torah have the numerical value 107, when the sum of all the integers through 107 = 5778 (2018 CE), the year prophesied by the tzaddikim for the 3rd manifestation of the Tree-of-Life, the 1st of which was with Adam, the 2nd in 2448 HC with the receipt of the 10 Commandments and the 3rd 66.6 jubilee years later in 5778 (2018 CE).

Oh, and by the way, this is the 54th paragraph in Shmot (Exodus) and while 54 x 107 = 5778, it begins at the 107007th letter in the Torah. If you think there is any coding or hidden meaning in the Bible at all, beyond the literal, if you believe in anything that the sages and tzaddikim did, then this is where you want to begin; after all, there is only 7 years left before 5778 (2018 CE).  This will be a multi-part series on the highest point in the Torah, the 620 letters of the 10 Commandments, and how do we know that they are the high-point, because as the Arizal, of blessed memory points out, 620 is the numerical value of Keter, the highest sefira (dimension), literally “crown.”

And recall that these 10 Commandments begin at Exodus 20:2 because as the Arizal further points out, the numerical value of the Hebrew word for 20 (Esrim) is also 620, and this is the 2nd time we stood at Keter and had the opportunity to receive the Tree-of-life reality and blew it.

First we need to establish that the 10 Utterances, more commonly known as the 10 Commandments, are found at a unique place in the Torah, which is why we laid out the math that heretofore had been known and guarded by a select few, passed by teacher to student to teacher for generations, 26 generations for Moses and 28 afterward for a total of 54, like the 54 portions that the Torah is divided into. Those same teachers would tell you that 26 is the gematria value of the ineffable Name of G-d, YHVH, and 28 is koach (power) as in the 28 letter of the Torah’s first verse.  But it’s more than a specific place in the Torah, the 10 Commandments are located at a unique paradigm in time. And we need to establish that for you, before we can reveal what actually happened back then.

Remember, the numbers are just the energy readings that we take when we press our measuring devices (our minds) against the wiring of the Torah to see how its circuitry works, and see which way the current flows. They are our guides to the cosmic gateways to which the Torah connects. If we think of the Torah as a static parchment of paper with words on it, rather than as live wires, then we’ll miss out on the ability to draw enormous amounts of energy from it, and we’ll miss the tremendous opportunities, like the one opening up for again soon.

Let’s begin, as G-d did, with “I am God, your Lord (Anochi Adonai Elohaycha, ENCY YHVH ELHYC),  and add that the final letter sum to 515.  The sages (chazal) have taught us that the final letters always point toward the future and in this case they pointed to the 515 times that Moses would later plead with G-d to let him enter the promised land.  We further know from chazal that had G-d not stopped him at 515, the next prayer would have succeeded and once Moses stepped into the land of Israel, it would have been all over and the Tree-of-life, world beyond illusion, would have been a reality. But that wasn’t G-d’s plan.

Those last 28 generations were each 120 years long, the length of Moses life, so that he’d be there for us in every generation, culmination in the final 120 years at 5778 (2018).  To see a larger picture of that plan go to The Divine Calendar.

And if we ask why that wasn’t G-d plan, we have only to look at ourselves because 516 is the value of “The people, ET H’AM“, as G-d refers to them.  It was the people fault. They weren’t ready, but we’ll get into that later. This also coincides with why we stand in judgment every year for 516 hours between Rosh Hashanna and Hoshanna Rabba.

Part II to follow shortly.
