4 Wells and the Source of the Living Waters

What do the 4 wells in parsha Toldot have to do with Isaac being 60 and with the fountain of life?

The Torah begins with the word for “well” permuted in its verse first 3 letters (BRE to BER), and actually it repeat it as the second word in the Torah (BRE to BER). Why?

And together they add to 406, the value of the spelled-out letter tav (TB). Why is the end in the beginning?

Let’s jump ahead to Toldot, the 6th portion of the Torah, where we learn about Isaac digging wells, and as the Arizal points out “the well (H’Be’er) has the same numerical value of Isaac (Yitzchak).

There are four wells mentioned, but the Arizal in his commentary on this portion, really goes deeper into the first two and then concentrates on the phrase from the portion (Bereshit 26:19) “a well of fresh spring water” (be’er mayim chayim), living waters.

The names of the 4 wells are Eisek, Sitnah, Rechovot, and Sheba, and while the Ari equates Eisek with the aspect of the Tetragrammaton known as Av (Chocma), and Sitnah with that of Sag (Binah), he skips the other two and connects “a well of fresh spring water” (be’er mayim chayim) with Mah (Zeir Anpin). That said, the names Eisek, (AShK) meaning contention, and Sitnah, (ShTtNH) meaning harassment, are both found in the second line of the 42-Letter Name of G-d, (the Ana B’koach): Eisek = KRAShTtN and Sitnah = HRYShTtN and the only letter not utilized in teh line is the resh (R), as in Rechovot (RChBVT) meaning “open spaces.”

As for Sheba (ShBA), the shin and ayin as included in this second line so the collective letters not utilized in the 4 wells are H, Ch,B,V,T and B) and these 6 letters sum to 423 and is we add 1 for the kolel, we get 424, the value for Mashiach Ben David, the Messiah.

Now, while the word Rechovot from which most of the extraneous letters come from has the word value 616, the same as that of H’Torah, “The Torah,” the final letters of Eisek, Sitnah and Rechovot (K,H,T) have the numerical value of 505, Sarah, from which the Mashiach connection stems, as we’ve discussed in numerous posts.

As an aside, please note, that the difference from H’Torah to Sarah is 616 – 505 = 111, the value of Alef, as in the Alef of Abraham, who also had dug wells before Isaac did, and is also the other half of the Mashiach equation.

So what is the spiritual significance of digging wells?

The 4th well, was dug at Beer Sheva, meaning satisfy/content and also seven (7) when G-d blessed Isaac and told him he’s multiply his seed for Abraham’s sake. It has the numerical value of 372. And when we consider the aspect of the Tetragrammaton known as Mah (Zeir Anpin) (YVD HE VEV HE) and use the spelled-out value of the 3 alefs (333) in it and add them to the value of the rest of the letters (42), subtract ing the kolel for the 3 alefs we get 333 + 42- 3 = 372.

Now considering that a well or cistern is a vessel, usually associated with the level of malchut (our world) and that zeir anpin is the 6 dimensions (sefirot) that channel the light (flow of energy/life) into our world, we find that the 7 in total are functioning properly at Beer Sheva to transmit the flow of energy necessary for G-d’s blessing to carry on through Isaac and to the future generations.

And since we know that the 42-Letter Name (the Ana B’koach) is directly associated with these 7 sefirot and that it acts as our channel to the upper worlds, we see why the early wells were tied in to it. Moreover, they were tied into the 2nd line of the Name, the line that is directly associated with Isaac’s energy. Using this analogy, the 4th well must be connected to the 4th line of the Name, and thus the point of the flowing blessings as well.

From the phrase “a well of fresh spring water” (be’er mayim chayim), we see that the first letters of the first 2 words spell out mem-bet as in the Shem mem-bet, the 42-Letter Name of G-d, and that the first letters of all 3 words add up to 50, representing Binah. And the full 3 words add up to 360. Moreover, if we add the 3 for the kolel for the 3 words we get 360 + 3 + 363, the numerical value of H’Mashiach.

And when we add those first letters of the living waters B,M,Ch, totaling 50 to the first letters of the first 3 named wells (A,Sh,R), totaling 570, or 10 times zan, sustenance, we get 50 + 570 = 620, the numerical value of Keter, the highest sefira/dimension.

There are 22 letters in the named wells and the phrase about the living waters in them, a not-so-subtle hint about a connection to the 22 letters of the alef-bet. So when we add the 3 named wells plus the 22 letters that comprise them we get 470 + 364 + 616 + 360 + 22 = 1832 and if we add 1 for the kolel, we get 1833.

Now, as is explained in depth in The Genesis Prayer, the central two letter pair, sitting at the center of the 4th (middle) line of the 42-Letter Name add up to 290, the value of Miriam, Moses’ sister, whose wells provided endless water and life for the Israelites throughout their 42 journeys on the way to the promised land

As also explained in depth in The Genesis Prayer, this central pair, Resh-Zaddi (RZ) also control a meditative gateway to fulfill that blessing and to help with conception and pregnancy, as well as with finding soul mates, as Rivka and Rachel and Moses did with their wells.

There is definite mid-point in the 42 letter Name, the place where the two drops from heaven, the two Ehyeh (EHYH), each of value 21, meet, 21 letters from the beginning and 21 letters from the end, a place where if the Name was split in two and the first letter was multiplied by the last and so forth and the 21 square roots taken, they’d add up to 358, the value of Mashiach. At this very place on the 4th line, the total numerical value up to that point is 1833, like the waters flowing through the 4th well. Is there a better place to find Keter?

And the ordinal value of the two letters at this special point, resh (R) and zaddi(Z) are 20 and 18, as in 2018 HC, the year of the Covenant of Abraham, also known as the Covenant of Halves, when G-d first promised to make Abraham’s descendants as numerous as the stars, etc. It’s also as in the year 2018 CE, the year prophesied for the arrival of the Messiah, at the end of the 4th exile.

And since these wells connected to the 22 letters, it’s important to note that there are 1833 letter Samech’s (S) in the Torah, adn teh value of Samech (S) is 60, as in the 60 years of Isaac’s age when he re-dug the wells of Abraham and stood in beer Sheba and G-d renewed (for no apparent reason) his blessing with Abraham, telling Isaac that he will multiply his seed. For no apparent reason other than making this gift of the Resh-zaddi gateway obvious to us and our generation.

And when we add the value of samech (60) to the value of the resh (200) and zaddi (90) we get 350 and if we then add the kolel of the 10 letters in “a well of fresh spring water” (be’er mayim chayim) we get “a well of fresh spring water” (be’er mayim chayim) = 360 – 10 = 350 = the RSZ well of flowing abundance and chesed (loving-kindness).

We also know from chazal that as the mid-way point in our journey so to speak this well (R-Z) protects us from the obstacles in our paths if we persevere and continue our journey until the end, seeing the illusions for what they are and reaching the promised land.

If we add the value of samech (60) to the full value of the 42 letters (3701) we get 3761 as in the year 1, or the 1st year on our new journey or 2018 years toward 2018 CE. Our first journey of 2018 years got us as far as the blessing in 2018 HC. There are 3760 years between the two events, 10 times the value of Shalom (peace, 376), or 10 times the value of Esau (376), about whom the Torah immediately tells after G-d extended his Covenant through Isaac, that Esau took a wife from the Hittites a source of grief for Isaac and Rivka.

And where do these wells flow from?

The Airzal tells us they flow from Gan Eden, the garden of Eden.

The Ark that contains the Torah is called H’CLY and we know from chazal that CLI stands for Cohen, Levi, and Yehudi, and that it has the value of 60, so when we open the Ark, we can metaphorically open the resh and the zaddi curtains (RZ) and connect to that flow from Gan Eden. We can also do that every time we do the Ana B’koach.

And note that it is in the 4th line (BTtRZTG) of the 42-letter name that we find word Brit, (BRYT) Covenant, slightly concealed. Since the Zaddi can be split into its two component parts, the Nun (N) and a backwards resh that in the time of Mashiach will be turned around, we have spelled out sequentially (B R Y T) Brit in the center of the line. So whose Brit and whose Covenant are gifted to us in that middle line of G-d’s Name?

This a special gateway available to all.  And to those that understand, the Samech (S) between the Resh-Zaddi (RZ) is the samech of Sulam (ladder) and of Sinai, both with the numerical value 130, which is why in Jacob’s famous dream in Vayetze Bereshit 28:12, the ladder was set up on the earth (ERZH).  It is the place of “running and returning.”

Use the gift, share the gift, and open the flowing waters in your life. Use the gift, share the gift, and help someone in need be fruit, righteous, and to multiply. Use the gift, share the gift and in the 8 final years to 5778 (2018) help fulfill the Covenant and be there for the Brit of Mashiach.

Sarah Lives Continued: There’s Much more than meets the eye.

In a very simplified recap, we’ve linked the verse Bereshit 21:1 and the keeping of G-d’s promise to Abraham and Sarah, and the birth of Isaac to the coming of H’Mashiach (the Messiah) in 5778 (2018 CE) and to the Ari, Rabbi Isaac Luria, (of numerical value 211) and then we’ve linked Bereshit 23:1 to the coming of H’Mashiach in 5778 (2018 CE) and to the Ari again. Now, let’s take it further, much further.

While we saw that the phrases “The Ari lives” and “The Messiah Lives” are connected to Bereshit 23:1 and to the phrase “Sarah Lives” there are two more verses connected to this 5th portion that link with one another and bring further clarity to the generational chain of H’Mashiach, two more pieces of the puzzle if you will. They are Bereshit 24:1 and 1 Kings (Malachim) 1:1, both of which begin with the key phrases “coming with the days” commonly translated at “old age.” But “coming with the days” is a definite reference to for those that understand. Bereshit 24:1 is talking about Abraham and 1 Kings 1:1, which is from the Haftorah portion associated and read with Chayei Sarah, is about King David.

Bereshit 24:1 is the verse recited 3 times after the Hallel prayers: V’Abraham zaken Ba Bayamim V’adonai berach et Abraham bacol. “Abraham was old, well advanced in years and God had blessed Abraham with everything. We’ll show shortly how this is a continuation of the previous verse, which was also the first in its respective chapter, as are these two, and we’ll also show how they all refer to the end of days (advanced in years) and to G-d’s fulfillment of his promise, his Covenant with Abraham.

The first connection between this verse and Bereshit 23:1 is hinted at in the palindromic word VYHYV, which if your recall indicated a coming and going in two different directions and thus a doubling of Sarah’s 127 years, as in 127 x 2 = 254, which just happens to be the numerical value of V’Abraham, the first word in Bereshit 24:1. And if you recall from the posts about verse Bereshit 22:1 and 23:1, about how they reflected Moses’ 515 prayers for the Messianic age to come and moreover that that the 516th prayer would have ushered it in, thus finding that the numerical value of the 4 word phrase that begins Bereshit 24:1: V’ABRHM TzKN BE BYMYM, is 516 is quite significant.

The verse begins with 4 words phrase: V’ABRHM TzKN BE BYMYM, very similar to the verse in 1 Kings 1:1that begins V’H’Melech David TzKN BE BYMYM, substituting the name King David for that of Abraham, and just like V’ABRHM having the value of 254, or 2 x 127, the 3 letters in the word melech (MLC) King, spelled out, also have the value of (80 + 74 + 100) = 254 = 2 x 127. But we can really begin to see the connection when we notice that the phrase David H’Melech Chai (King David lives” has the numerical value of 127, as in the 127 years of Sarah’s life.

The first of the two similar verses that reflect the same thought, Bereshit 24:1 and 1 Kings 1:1, has 4 words and the second one has 5, together, 9 words, once again reflecting that theme of 9 that we saw when we were analyzing Sarah’s verse Bereshit 23:1. Since it takes two words to say “King David,” we see that while the first letters of the first 4 words of Abraham’s verse add up to 17, that of tov, good, the first letter of the first 3 words in King David’s verse add up to 17as well. This harks back to Creation when the Torah states that G-d made the Light and it was good (tov).

In case you haven’t realized yet, and I guarantee you have will by the time you finish this blog, the purpose of all this encryption is to lead us to David H’Melech (King David) and his connection to H’Mashiach. Even the 22 letters of the Hebrew Alef-bet say David H’Melech, loud and clear. The sum of the 22 letters is 1495, which visually and mathematically breaks down to 14 and 95, and 14 is the numerical value of David and 95 is the numerical value of H’Melech, thus the sum of the 22 letter represents David H’Melech.

Moreover, the various examples we have of specific words in the verses equating to 254 is more than just 127 x 2. Since the sum of the integers through 22, as in the 22 letters, is 253 and 254 is 1 more than 253, these specific words are all references to going above physicality, which is what both Abraham and King David did. This is also a hint as to what we must do both in order to see and understand all this, and to be able to see and understand what will happen in the time of H’Mashiach, “in the coming of days.” We must expand our minds, our vision, our loving kindness (chesed) beyond the physical, which means beyond ourselves, and our selfish natures. Just as we do every Elul leading up to Rosh Hashanah, but on a much grander scale, we must prepare ourselves for meeting and greeting the King.

Using the 3 Shanah (years) and the 3 linked verses and the multiple of 3 word combinations that keep leading us to astoundingly redundant messages as yet another clue, we can take another 3 word combination, such as the values of the two BYMYM from the two verses (Bereshit 24:1 and 1 King 1:1 plus the value of the word TzKN from those verse and add 2 for the kolel of the 2 verses and we get 204 + 157 + 2 = 363, the numerical value of H’Mashiach, “The Messiah.” Even verse numbers themselves, Bereshit 24:1 + 1 Kings 1:1 plus 6 for the kolel of the 6 digits = 241 + 111 + 6 = 358, the numerical value of Mashiach.

While the word V’Abraham from, Bereshit 24:1 has the numerical value sofit of 814, the same as the verse Vayikra 19:18 paraphrased as Love thy neighbor…, the word V’H’Melech “And the king,” referring to King David from verse 1 Kings 1:1, has the numerical value of 101, which is the same as the gematria atbash of Shanah (ShNH), year, from verse Genesis 23:1. And 101 is the same numerical value as the cyclical ordinal value of the 3 Mothers (E, Sh,M), and is also the simple gematria of Michael, the archangel, protector of Israel, whose numerical value of 541 is the cyclical ordinal value of the 7 Doubles (B,G,D,C,P,R,T) as revealed in the Sefer Yetzirah and as will be explained soon in another post to this blog.

But more germane to our current analysis is that the ordinal value of Sarah, Abraham, and David is 46+41+14 = 101, as well. And their numerical value, including the kolel for the 11 letters in their 3 names is 505 +248 + 14 + 11 = 778, as in 5778.

And since the first word of Bereshit 24:1, V’Abraham and the first word of 1 Kings 1:1 together have the numerical value of 254 + 101 = 355, that of Shanah (year) and/or sefira (dimension), so what better link to Sarah’s verse in Bereshit 23:1 can we ask for?

Except that when we strip away the prefixes as we often do when trying to find the essence of the matter in the Torah, we see that the spelled out sofit values for the 3 letters of the 3 words from the 3 verses, Sarah, (ShRH), the EBR of Abraham, and Melech (MLC) plus the 24 letters in the spelled out versions of these 9 letters = 2635 + 996 + 1345 + 24 = 5000 exactly. And when we couple that with the equation just above, we get Sarah, Abraham and King David = 5778.

And just in case we think this is some colossal coincidence, please note that verse Bereshit 24:1 is divided down the middle into two phrases of 5 words each: V’Abraham zaken Ba Bayamim and V’adonai berach et Abraham bacol. The second phrase “God had blessed Abraham with everything,” has the numerical value of 1995 + 18 (letters) + 5 (words) = 2018. And since we know G-d made his Covenant with Abraham in 2018 HC, it must be telling us that Abraham will finally receive everything (His Promises fulfilled) in 2018 CE, 5778 HC.

But what of the second part of 1 Kings 1:1, which is also split to two 5 word segments (phrases)? That may be giving us another version of the end of days. “YYCSHV BBGTYM VLE YChM LV” translates to “he could not keep warm even when they put covers on him.” It’s a very cold, bleak, uncomforting end.” And since the first word in that phrase has a numerical value of 107 and begins and ends in vav, like the VHYHV that began Bereshit 23:1, and because all the integers from 1 to 107 add up to exactly 5778, we need to take this warning, this possible outcome, seriously. It’s not coincidence that there are 31 verses in 1 Kings 1, just as there are in Bereshit 1. And/or that there are 31 words in all 3 verses. It’s another beginning.

But how do we know these 3 verses are really meant to be connected and that they collectively connect to the end of days? The total standard gematria of the 3 verses is 5770, plus 8 for the 8 years that we’re told by chazal that H’Mashiach will have to pass through before the brit (covenant) can be achieved gives us 5778, and also a clue that the tzaddikim of blessed memory are probably correct. And the square root of the gematria sofit value for the 3 verses is 111.848, pointing us again to the Alef, and the unity of the three ones, or columns of the tree-of-life in the end and since 848 = 2 x 424, the value of Mashiach Ben David, it’s also pointing to the 2 heads once again.

Now, going back to the 3 Shanah’s (years) from the 2nd part of verse Bereshit 23:1, Sarah’s verse. When we spell out (ShNH, ShNH, ShNYM) using the mem sofit we get 2048, a reference to Abraham (248) no doubt, but more to the point, the 2048 is the year their son, Isaac was born.  Incidentally, Sarah died when he was 37, as in the value of the first word of that verse (VYHYV), which starts out “this is he life of Sarah.” Moreover, 2048 – 27 (letters) – 3 (words) = 2018 yet again.

Of course, simple gematria of the 3 Shanahs (years) gives us a value of 355 + 355 + 400 = 1110, or 10 x 111, the numerical value of the letter alef, and also elef, the word for 1000, thus 10 x 1000, which either way, translates to the keter (crown) or head of the 10 sefirot. And if we add the ordinal value (138) to it to get the complete value, we get 1110 + 138 = 1248, a simple allusion to 1000 (keter/elef/alef) and to Abraham (248). It should be very clear by now, that this sequence and these verses are telling us about the seed level of Mashiach, of the universe, and about both the beginning and the end of it all. And that sentiment is echoed in that the 3 Shanah sequence ends in Yud-mem, representing Keter of value 620.

And speaking of first words, the numerical value of the first word in each of these three verses, not only begins with vav, making 3 vavs, or 6 + 6 + 6 = 18, the value of chai, life, but they in simple gematria they are 101 + 254 + 37 = 392 and when we add the kolel of 16 for the 16 letters in the 3 words, we get 408 as in the 408 missing composite letters from the Torah, (600,000 – 408 letters).

Incidentally, the 231 in Genesis 23:1 can be said to relate to the 231 Gates of Wisdom discussed in the Sefer Yetzirah. Nevertheless, of the 12 words in the verse, Genesis 23:1, the two-word phrase Sarah Chayeh is repeated, not only emphasizing that the Torah is talking about someone beyond Sarah, someone yet to come, someone from her spiritual lineage. It also allows us to take note that when the kolel for the 6 letters in this phrase is added to its complete word value (normal and ordinal together) we get a total of 613, as in the 613 precepts delineated in the Torah, indicating we are talking about a complete tzaddik (righteous soul).

The word TzKN repeated in each of these 2 similar verses (24:1 and 1 Kings 1:1) has value of 157 so the value of both these words together is 157 x 2 = 314, that of Shaddai Mettatron, Pi, etc. This in itself is a hint to the 3 letters of David (DVD) that have a value of 14. And speaking of Pi, the letters Shin and yud that were both repeated 9 times in Bereshit 23:1 are not only completed with the letter dalet of David to form the Shin-dalet-yud of Shaddai, but they translate through gematria atbash to Mem and Bet as in the Shem Mem-bet, and as noted in The Genesis Prayer, when we divide the number 9 by the small gematria of the Shem Mem-Bet we get:

9/.123049027395534023292943802957033870306904 =

73.1415777

= 70 + 3.141577


The simple equation not only yields an impossibly precise approximation of the mathematical constant Pi, but also 5777, the year 2017 CE. It’s also coupled to the all-important Biblical time span of 70 (years), including David’s lifespan, and to the number 73, the value of Chochma, wisdom, the 9th sefira, but we’ll get into Pi and its connection to 5778 a little later.

Next, the words BE BYMYM common to both verses (23:1 and 1 Kings 1:1) contains two mem-bets each, signifying the upper and lower Names, meaning redemption, Pad (PD of numerical (42 + 42) value 84, and represented by the Eyheh Asher Eyheh “I am that I am,” also known as the two heads (RESh, a permutation of Asher), which fits with the twin numerical values of the two Yud-mems of the BYMYM. and the Bet (B) which signals 2, by its value (2)/ Meanwhile, the Alef of BE, is also a sign of head, as it’s the primordial letter that comes before the Bet of Bereshit, the physical first letter of the Torah, and it’s also the head of the alef-bet. Spelled out yud-mem has the numerical value of 100 and the second one has the sofit value of 620, both representative of keter, and thus the two heads, or crowns. This also is indicative of a crown at either end, at the beginning and at the end, though that is up to interpretation.

The other head is also Sarah, as the numerical value of 3 of the first 4 words of Bereshit 23:1 subtracting her name they total (VYHYV ShRH ChYY MEH) 37 + 28 + 46 = 111, which is that of the letter Alef.

The other two heads are Sarah’s spiritual lineage and Abraham’s, the two halves of the soul that came together with G-d’s blessing to make their spiritual seeds as numerous and as bright as the stars.

Nevertheless, the word BYMYM when spelled out has the value 412 + 100 + 100 = 612, as in the value of the word Brit, Covenant, so we know that the Torah is not fooling around when it mentions “the coming of days.”

There are many different types of gematria, (established encryption decoding systems, some more common, like sofit (final letters), katan (small), atbash (reverse alef-bet) and albam, (plus 11 or middle of alef-bet) and some are much more concealed and known only to a very few people today. but all are revelatory. Nevertheless, it should be cautioned that other than very basic gematria, none of the others should be utilized unless it has already been established that the particular subject that you’re examining has significant already proven spiritual relevance. In this way, you are not imposing your own creation, but rather stripping away the layers to reveal more and more about the spirit of the subject.

Since we’ve more than established the significance of Bereshit 23:1, and indeed the name Sarah, we can see that her name may contain additional encoded information. And while the name Sarah in gematria atbash (BGZ) has a numerical of 95 as in H’Melech, “the King,” in gematria albam it is 109 as in David H’Melech , “King David.” Moreover, the the first line of the 42-Letter Name (Shem Mem-Bet) which included that letters (BGZ) and which has the numerical value of 506 (one more that Sarah, 505) has the remaining letters (EYT) and if we convert these back using atbash as well, we get (EMT) which spells the word Emet, meaning truth, commonly thought of as Torah truth. Thus the the 42-Letter Name’s first line, whose value equates with that of the Hebrew word for “Unconditional Love,” translates to “Sarah Emet.” And thus both, thN Name Sarah and the 42-Letter Name, not insignificantly, connect to David H’Melech.

The sum of the atbash values for Abraham and Sarah is 898 plus the kolel for the 8 letters in their names gives us 906, as in the value of the last line of the 42-Letter Name again, and as the value of the words Et Sarah from the Bereshit 21:1 which began our sequence of posts on this subject. Moreover, as we shall see momentarily, 906 BCE is also the year David H’Melech was born.

In relation to the 3 different year parameters mentioned in Genesis 23:1, which we know from the Zohar relate to the different sets of sefirot, 100, 20 and 7 respectively, if we follow Abraham’s advise in the Sefer Yetzirah, we get (100 x 20) + (100 x 7) + (20 x 7) + (1 x 2 x 7) = 2854 and 2854 HC is the year King David was born.

There is no coincidence here. If you haven’t read it already. I suggest you check out the blog post titled “King David and the Messiah” and also the book The Divine Calendar, but a few highlight below will illustrate my point:

King David was born in 2854 HC

2 x 2854 HC = 5708 HC

Israel Received Statehood in 5708 HC

therefore

King David’s Birth marks the Mid-point to the Founding of Israel

5708 HC = 1948 CE

therefore

Israel Received Statehood in 1948 CE

2854 HC = 906 BCE

2854906 = 1948

2 x 906 BCE = 1812 BCE

1812 BCE = 1948 HC

Abraham was born in 1948 HC

therefore

Abraham was born in 1812 BCE

and therefore

King David was born at the Mid-point between Abraham’s birth and the year “0” CE

King David was born in 2854 HC

King David died in 2924 HC

therefore

King David lived 70 years

2854 + 2924 = 5778 HC

therefore

The Mid-point of King Davids life = 2889 HC

The Mid-point from Adam to Mashiach = 2889 HC

therefore

The Mid-point of King Davids life marks the Mid-point in the Time-lime to Mashiach

King David was born in 906 BCE

King David died in 836 BCE

906 + 836 = 1742 BCE

1742 BCE = 2018 HC

2018 HC = The Covenant of Abraham

2018 CE = 5778 HC

Pretty convincing!

Now regarding the 3 sets of years again (100, 20, and 7) the value of the word used for 100, (meah) is 46 and that of 20 (esrim) is 620, which we’ve stated perviously is keter, but 620 + 46 = 666. And while the sum of the values and ordinal values of 20 (esrim) and 7 (Sheva) together is 620 + 80 + 272 + 39 = 1111, the sums of the words used for 100, 20, and 7 collectively sum to 1038 and 138 for their simple and ordinal values respectively, once again indicating the 38 years of the Ari’s life that were even more specifically indicated in the previous posting.

Also in relation to King David, who lived 70 years, we should note that the numerical value of the Ari, 211, is half of 422, the numerical value of the word seventy 70. For many more connections to this and the First Temple’s destruction in 422 BCE and the Second Temple’s destruction in 70 CE, please see The Divine Calendar.

The gematria albam of the 3 interconnected names Abraham, Sarah and David including the kolel of 15 for the 15 letters in their names is 948 as in the 948 digit in Pi where the final series 5778185778 occurs, but to really understand that and to grasp its profound significance for us we must read There’s Nothing Random in the Universe.

Before we move on to the next clue the Torah gives us, I received an email from a reader Ron A who had made a profound finding:

וַ יִּהְיוּחַיֵּי שָׂרָה, מֵאָה
“I have just noticed, that if you take out the ‘VAV‘ of zeir anpin, Yihyu, Chayey Sara Meah, take the first letter of each word and you get ‘mashiach’…”

As stated in the last posting, verse Genesis 23:1 that gave rise to all the connections from Sarah to the incarnations of Mashiach (the messiah) is the 5th portion in the Torah and it is the 55th paragraph in the Torah so how perfect is it in the grand scheme of things that this verse contains the word Shanah, year, of numerical value 355, twice, 3 times when we consider the plural version, Shanim. Why perfect? Because we know from the Zohar that the value of Shanah (ShNH) is also that of sefira (dimension), as in the 10 Sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-life, and not only is 55 the sum of all the integers from 1 to 10, but 55 is also the 10th Fibonacci number (1,1,3,5,8,13,21,34,55…), a series of numbers integrally based on the mathematical constant Phi which controls the spiraling nature of the universe and is integrally linked to the year 5778, as explained in the except below. And you may have also noticed that the consecutive 3rd, 4th and 5th Fibonacci numbers spell out 358, the value of Mashiach, while, it just so happens, the numerical sequence found at the 10th digit in PI is also 358. And it’s also perfect because when we add the kolel of 3 for the 3 letters of the word Shanah (ShNH) we get 355 + 3 = 358, Mashiach.

And of further interest here is that that the first 5 Fibonacci numbers (1,1,3,5,8,13,21,34,55…) total 18, as in chai, lives and the 3 vavs (6,6,6), and as in its connection to 2018 and 5778 as will be explained below. Also, while the first 4 numbers add up to 10 (sefirot); the first 6 add up to 31, the value of El; and the first 7 add up to 52, the value of the Tetragrammaton YHVH at the level Ban, Malchut; and the first 8 add up to 86, the value of Elohim; the first 10 equal 230, as in Genesis Chapter 23, where all this about the 10 sefirot is revealed.

Nevertheless, As we explore the relationship of 55 and 505 and 555 to the Ari, of numerical value 211 and verse Genesis 2:11, to the year of the arrival of Moshiach, it’s worthwhile to note as discussed in There’s Nothing Random in the Universe in regards to the mathematical constant Pi that the ” Small Gematria Value of the 42-Letter Name = 173 and that at 173 digits after the decimal place in Pi we find the numerical string …2110555… and 2110555 = exactly 5778.28 Sidereal Years. Moreover, we know that this isn’t an odd, yet still pure coincidence because besides the 3 statistically impossible inclusions of 5778 (2018) and also of the following year 2019, there’s yet another numerical string within these first 1000 digits of Pi and that’s 737190, which in sidereal days equates to exactly 2018.28 years.”

This excerpt from There’s Nothing Random about the Universe helps explain the connection of Phi, the mathematical constant that controls the spiraling nature of the universe to the number 18, that of the 3 vavs (6,6,6) and of (ChY) Chai, as in Sarah, Chai, Mashiach Chai, David Chai. Moshe Chai, and the Ari Chai, all definitive connections we’ve seen linked to these verses (Bereshit 21:1, 23:1 and 24:1, and 1 KIngs 1:1):

Chapter 4

And that single unique number is 5778.

For some reason beyond explanation 5778 and Phi were designed to interact, and 5778 was made to stand alone within all the numbers in the known universe.

Why would this be possible?

Why it’s possible for a number to stand out so is difficult to say and maybe not for us to say at all. But we can explain a little bit about the mechanism and the why might get clearer as you get deeper into this book.

The next series of minor revelations may shed some light though on the process by which 5778 became so unique. When we divide 5778 by Phi raised to the power of 15, or Phi15, it equates to approximately 4.24, which is the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David, the Messiah, Son of David.

Then when we divide 5778 by Phi raised to the power of 16 we get Phi2, or written as an equation, 5778/Phi16 = 2.61803399 = Phi2.

Then when we divide 5778 by Phi raised to the power of 17 we get Phi, or written as an equation 5778/Phi17 = 1.61803399 = Phi.

And finally when we divide 5778 by Phi raised to the power of 18 we get 1, or written as an equation 5778/ Phi18 = 1.0000000…, representing a singularity, an absolute oneness.

Therefore Phi18 = 5778 and the square root of 18 = 4.242640, once again the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David, the Messiah, Son of David. And this time followed by the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton, 26.

We can begin to understand that there is a dynamic occurring here and that 5778 didn’t accidentally become unique. Regardless of how we want to read this, 5778, Phi and the number 18 are integrally and dramatically linked together.

It’s interesting that 17√5 and 19√5 bound 18√5 on both sides.[1] It’s the same with dividing 5778 by Phi raised to the power of 6 less 17, and also 19. In other words we get a resultant whole number to 3 decimals places or more when with the equation 5778/(Phi6 17), and also with 5778/(Phi6 19).

It’s as if the numerical universe were zeroing in on 18 and 5778.

And 5778/(Phi-1)18= 33385284= 57782

And as we learned in The Divine Calendar, 3338 was the year the First Temple was destroyed. This also means that (Phi-1)18 = 1/5778.

5778/ Phi18 = 1.0000000

Phi18 = 5778

√18 = 4.242640

5778/(Phi-1)18 = 57782

(Phi-1)18 = 1/5778

What Does Phi18 = 5778 Mean?

The equation Phi18 = 5778 simply means that 5778 is the 18th power of Phi. And as a derivative of Phi itself the number 5778 might be expected to work out to a whole number, or nearly a whole number, at some point.

But that doesn’t answer what the significance of 18 is, or why it had to equal 5778. And it certainly doesn’t explain why 5778 in the Hebrew calendar is 2018 in the Gregorian or Western calendar. Once again 5778 and 18 linked together.

If you’ve already read The Divine Calendar you already understand why that is and don’t believe the 18 in 2018 and in Phi18 = 5778 to be coincidental. As you read this book you’ll also come to know that it wasn’t.


5778 is the 18th Power of Phi

[1] Five(5), but possibly more significant 17 and 19 are part of the exceedingly rare set of Mersenne primes, meaning that they satisfy the equation for being prime numbers such that Mn = 2n –1. They are the 6th and 7th Mersenne Primes, which is also probably significant as the dimensions of the 42-Letter name Matrix are 6 by 7, but that will be better understood in the course of this book. The prime number 67, the numerical value of the dimension of Binah (understanding), also connected to the 42-Letter Name, is another of the Mersenne Primes, a set of only 12 numbers up to n = 127, making M127 an enormously large number of 39 digits.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

and

1/238.095 = .0042

or simply

42

as in the Shem Mem-Bet

The End of Days is Spelled out in the Torah

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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