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 Nations: What delayed the Messiah? And Who made the prophesies of 5760 and of 2012?

When will the Messiah (Moshiach) come? And What did the Golden Calf incident have to do with the delay? And what ever happened to that prophecy of His arrival in 5760?
וירא העם כי בשש משה לרדת מן ההר ויקהל העם על אהרן

Exodus (Shmot) 32:1 … When the nation saw that Moshe delayed to come down from the mountain, the people assembled about Aaron and said to him…

H’Am, the nation, is referred to by the Zohar as the erev rav, the force of so-called converts who derive their power from Amalek and have always sought to undermine the power of the Jews (Israelites) to bring Mashiach, the Messiah. The numerical value of H’Am (העם) is 115, and 115 jubilee (50-year intervals) is 5750, the year that Israel celebrated its 42nd year, which was 28 years before the prophesied date for the Geula, the arrival of Mashiach and the End of Days. Those familiar with The Genesis Prayer and this blog know that 28 is intimately connected with the year 5778, the construction of the Torah, and that the first 28 letters of the Torah is the link between the 42-Letter Name, the Torah, and Creation.

Before we look deeeper into the process lets examine the word H’Am (העם), comprised of a final Mem of value 40, and 2 letters, representative of the Mem-bet, or 42, the Name of G-d that chazal has told us will bring about the geula, the final redemption and thus the end of our collective 42 -step journey.

Moreover, the Ayin, of value 70, hints to the age of Israel in the prophesied date of 5778, while the other 2 letters, hey (5) and mem (40) add up to 45, the numerical value of Adam (EDM), which as we’ve explained in other post, is known to represent Adam-David-Mashiach. Moreover, the numerical value of the spelled out letters EDM from Adam-David-Mashiach is 111 + 434 + 80 = 625, which is not only the numerical value of H’Keter, “the crown and highest possible level (sefira), but the number 625 is also the exact square root of the total number of words, verses and letters in the Torah combined (390,625), which in itself graphically depicts, H’Keter, (625) crowning Heaven (Shama’im, 390).

Nevertheless, the numerical values for the phase “Adam, David and Mashiach” plus 1 for the kolel add up to 45 +14 + 364 + 1 = 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David.

And we know from the Zohar that the ayin (ע) of numerical value 70 in H’Amעם) is not without purpose because there are 70 nations in total from which holy sparks must be raised in order to bring about H’Mashiach, corresponding to the last 70 years from Israel receiving statehood in 5708 to the year 5778, and to the 70 years of King David’s life. As you can and should read in The Divine Calendar, this also relates to the destruction of the First Holy Temple in 422 BCE and to that of the the Second Temple in 70 CE. And most significantly, the word seventy (70) has the numerical value of 422 and the sum of the Names (or 3 aspects, points in time) of Adam, David and H’Mahsiach is 45 +14 + 363 = 422.

Why do we refer to these 3 aspects of the messiah as 3 points in time?

In the divine calendar of 5778 years from Adam to Moshiach, the midpoint is marked by the exact midpoint in King David’s life, 2889 HC.

The gematria atbash reveals yet another clue about the H’Am (העם) and the eventual connection to 5778 in that when we use this reverse alphabet cipher the word H’AM becomes (Z’TzY) which has a numerical value of 107, which corresponds to the sum of all the integers (spiritually, the sum of the collective memory) from 1 to 107, which is exactly 5778. And probably not so coincidentally, if we add both the regular and the atbash gematria of H’AM we get 115 + 107 = 222, which is also the same as the spelled out gematria milui value of the 3 letters in H’AM less the kolel for the 3 letters, or 15 + 130 + 80 – 3 = 222. Moreover, 6000 – 222 = 5778.

Why 6000?

In this verse, the Torah uses the word בשש “boshesh; delayed” which can also be read, “beshesh; at the sixth.” Nearly all the assorted messianic prophesies point to the sixth millennium, and there’s no argument with that, especially as 2 + 2 + 2 = 6 and we know that the nations couldn’t wait 6 more hours for Moses to return with the first set of Holy tablets from Mt Sinai.

Thanks to the Sefer Chesed Le’Avraham by Rav Avraham Azulai, zs’kl, there was much speculation that H’Mashiach would arrive in 5760 (2000 CE). And he did in a sense, as the value of the word chai (18) in the phrase Mashiach chai (the Messiah lives) indicates that he will live 18 years from 5760 until 5778, but that will all be revealed in time.

Rav Avraham Azulai, zs’kl, used the calculation of the size of a mikve, 40 seah, which is equivalent to 5760 eggs to determion the date 5760. Now, the erev rav have always thrived by spreading doubt, and doubt in Hebrew has the numerical value of 240, the same as Amalek (AMLK), which not insignificantly contains the word for nation (AM) and adds LK, of numerical value 130, the same as Sinai, where the doubt was sewn 6 hours before Moses’ arrival and the golden calf was constructed.

If we reverse we the initial letters in the phrase 40 Seah, or Mem Seah, we get Samech Meah or 60 Meah, which is 60 hundred, which is 6000 as in the 6000 years of the 6th millenium. which corresponds to the Shesh in בשש “boshesh.

But what does doubt have to do with 5760?

The value 5760 can be derived from the equation 240 x 24 = 5760 and also from 6000 – 240 = 5760. Since 24 is the value of cad, a vessel, and 240 is the value of Amelak and doubt, we see that 5760 HC is the year of Amelak, which has always been spiritually and historically the scourge of the Jews (Israelites).

From the word H’Am (העם), when the letters hey and mem are spelled out we get 15 + 80 = 95, the numerical value of “The King” and ayin spelled out is 130, that of Sinai, thus indicating that the King was at Sinai, but as we’ve seen the doubt spread by the erev rav impeded them from receiving Him. The message in all this is that we cannot let the erev rav from impeding us from receiving Him this time. We were giving 18 years, 6 + 6 + 6 years to overcome the erev rav and the doubts within ourselves in order to receive H’Mashiach in 5778. That is 66.6 jubilee years from 2448 HC, the last chance we got, when for the lack of 6 hours patience and certainty we had to wait another 3330 years for the next and final opportunity.

What about the prophesied year 2012 CE?

Since there are 18 years from the year 2000 to 2018, 2012 is 2/3 or .666 of the way in the final journey.  And while the Mayan calendar resets in the year 2012 CE for another cycle it doesn’t actually end, but many of the nations have latched onto that as a date for the end of days.  Now, while we’re in the period of Gog V M’gog, not accidentally of numerical value 70, which began in 5760 (2000 CE), and while we’re experiencing ever more difficult times, they won’t end in 2012 and the Messianic age won’t begin in 2012. But what will occur, is a deeper sense of doubt and disillusion as yet another supposed date for the Messiah comes and goes.  Don’t get fooled by Amalek; there’s no Biblical context, no Bible code for the year 2012; it’s one more illusion, and mashiach consciousness is all about seeing past the illusions of what we call reality.

How do we know we’ll get 2 opportunities?

The word H’AM is repeated twice in this verse, meaning we will have to confront the nations (erev rav/Amalek) twice, or once more in order to reach Mashiach consciousness.

And the bet (ב), meaning 2 or second, of בשש “boshesh (delayed) indicates that the delay of the 6 hours led to the delay into the sixth millennium and 2nd opportunity for us to unite as one as we were in Adam, the embodiment of Mashiach before the original sin.

Doubt that? Multiply the values of each of the letters in בשש “boshesh (delayed) and take the square root to find its essence and what do you get? 300 x 300 x 2 = 180,000 and its square root is 424.2640. Since 424 is the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David, and 26 is that of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), and 40 is both the Biblical number for “coming of age” and also the number of years that those at Mt Sinai had to wait to enter the promised land because of the golden calf incident, It’s pretty obvious what was missed and what got delayed.

Why did they turn to Aaron?

“the people assembled about Aaron…”

Amalek surrounded Aaron because Aaron is the link to Moshiach. The only name in the Torah linked to Mashiach is Aaron. And the exact words “about Aaron” (AL EHRN) have the numerical value, when the kolel is added for the two words, of 100 + 256 + 2 = 358, which is that of Mashiach.

The gold was put into his hands, to give life to the golden calf, which has the numerical value of 108, thus 1 more than 107, and thus covering up the revelations of 5778 until now. And from the nations, Mashiach will emerge. There was much technology that went into the plot to undermine Aaron and the Israelites, and one part of that was that gold, hand and also David all have the numerical value of 14, linking them all to the negative action of the gold being put into Aaron’s hand.

Think not? Then explain why the 12 words of the verse add up to 2865 and when we add the kolel for the 12 words twice for each period we’d have to wait, or alternatively the value 14, the value of David (gold and/or hand) plus 10 for the 10 Commandments we were supposed to have received that day, we get 2889 HC, the midpoint in David’s life and the midpoint from Adam to Moshiach.

And what will happen in 5778, 2018 CE?

If we turn to Exodus (Shmot) 20:18 for a clue, we find that in referring to H’Am, the people (nation, erev rav) it says, “The people kept their distance while Moses entered the mist where the Divine was [revealed].”

And so they shall keep their distance. Distance in kabbalistic spirituality means “dissimilarity” of form, thus the chaff will be separated from the wheat.  The peoples (nations) couldn’t see into the mist because the mist represents a reality beyond their comprehension; it’s the tree-of-life reality.  When Moses (Mashiach) emerges in 5778 (2018 CE) the divine will be revealed to all who have awakened to the Messiah consciousness, and only to those. B”H everyone will awaken.
