What We Need is a Leader!

We need a leader. What does a leader do?

Provide direction. What direction are we going now? Anyone know?

That’s why we need a leader.

There have been several great Patriarchs and numerous great tzaddikim (righteous souls) but only 3 leaders in Biblical history that the kabbalists have connected to the Messiah and the final redemption: Yosef (Joseph), Moshe (Moses) and King David.

The front pages of todays papers show Israeli soldiers dragging Israelis from their homes. Three days after 173 people were killed in MumBai and devout Jews were massacred in their home. Is this direction? What message is being sent to the world? To the spiritual world?

Can anyone think that giving up the entrance to the Cave and the Home of the Patriarchs (Machpelah) will bring peace to Israel, to the world. What spiritual message is that sending?

Can anyone think that giving most of Israel to the Palestine’s will solve the problems of the disgruntled masses throughout Arabia or their monarchies who need scapegoats? What about Iran; do they really care if Palestine is a state?

Can anyone think that giving away Israeli land and homes will bring peace to Israel, the world? How egocentric is that thought? It’s saying that all the world’s problems and anger are based on whether you possess a plot of land or not. Do you really think there would be peace in the world, in the mid-east, if Israel gave away everything and ceased to exist? Of course not. People fight all over the world over every little thing whether there are Jews present or not. And they fought fierce devastating battles all over the world for the 5708 Biblical years before Israel had any land at all. Giving up the land is NOT the answer.

Peace will never come from giving up land. It will come from giving up ego.

Peace will never come from Jews fighting (arguing with) Jews. It will come from unity.

Why is peace so hard to come by? Because it is so hard to forgo our egos and unify.

We all have our opinions, but until we all realize that they are irrelevant. If you’re angry right now with that statement, that is ego, and that is exactly what we all need to cut out of ourselves. Because that means that we value our individual opinions more than peace, more than Mashiach (Messiah) consciousness.

That’s why we need a leader. We need someone to rally around and whose opinions we follow without trying to bring him down by opposing him with our own.

That Israel was granted statehood and land in 1948 CE, 70 years before the prophesied date of the Mashiach and the Geula, the final redemption in 2018 (5778) was no fluke. It was divinely arranged. As can be read and should be read in The Divine Calendar, Abraham was born in 1948 HC and G-d made his Covenant with Abraham in 2018 HC, and the midpoint of King David’s 70 year life was in 2889 HC, the midpoint from Adam to Messiah in 5778.

We, our generation, have been given the right (not a foregone conclusion) to enter Zion. Moses prayer 515 times, every hour from Rosh Hashannah to Hoshanna Rabba for that right. G-d asked him to stop because on the 516th time his wish would have been granted. But that wasn’t the timing G-d wanted. 66.6 jubilee years ago in 2448 HC, we proved we weren’t ready during Moses 40 day absence. What does that say about our ability to succeed without a leader. He was gone for only 40 days.

Here is a secret about Rosh Hashannah and also about that absence and what was missing:

Rosh Hashannh (RESh HShNH), the head of the year (you can see the blog on the letters and cosmos as to why it is the head of the year) can be split up into (REShH ShNH), making the numerical value 506 and the second word as Shanah, year. The value 506 is synonymous with Ahavatchinam, “Unconditional Love” and is not only the value of the first line of the 42-Letter Name (Ana B’koach), but a value repeated 3 times in it’s last 7 letters. The hidden measure is Rosh Hashannh is the moment in the cosmic calendar that we can tap into “Unconditional Love.” The other message for those that want to know, is that that cosmic energy is available to us whenever we do the the Ana B’koach with the conviction we bring to Rosh Hashannah. Incidentally, most kabbalists agree that the 42-Letter Name was what the high priest recited in the Holy of Holies.

Now, the other secret here is in the 40 days. In order for the Messiah to be present, the comsos must be properly aligned, which mean all 3 primordial letters (energy archetypes) must be present, and as per the Sefer Yetzirah, Abraham’s Book of Formation, these are the 3 Mothers: Alef, Mem, Shin (EMSh). In the year 2448, on Rosh Hashannah, RESh HShNH, the Alef (E) and Shin (Sh), only the Mem was missing. Moshe himself, embodied and carried the spiritual energy of the primordial letter Mem, spelled (MM), and mem has the numerical value of 40, so if the Israelites had waited 40 days, and Moshe would have appeared as scheduled the Mem would have been complete and the 3 Mothers (EMSh) would have been cosmically aligned. The first Mem would have gone to Rosh REShM, making a numerical value of 541, Israel, and incidentally that would have lined up the 7 Doubles (BGDCPRT) as well, but that’s for another blog).

And the second Mem would have gone to HShNH, making MHNSh or (MHSh N), or (HShM, N), or (MShH,N). The secrets here are multiple, as the numerical value of these 4 letters is 395, that of H’Shama’im, (Heaven) and the letters MShH spell Moshe (Moses), and permute into Hashem (HShM) and also the 5th of the 72 Names (triplets), the one for healing, MHSh. Moreover, the letter Nun (N) has the numerical value of 50, representing the 50 Gates of Binah (understanding) that the we will reach when Mashiach arrives and that Moses was at and only 1 hour short on that 50th day from the 1st of Elul (Rosh Chodesh Elul) to Hoshannah Rabba. And if you recall, it was on the 1st of Elul that Moses ascended for the 2nd set of Tablets. And one more secret embedded here is that the 3 non-primordial letters spell H’NR, “The Candle.” It was the Light in the darkness that we missed then. All it took that time was one more candle.

In another vein, the kabbalistic secret is that the numerical values for Yosef (Joseph), Moshe (Moses) and David add up to 156 + 345 + 14 = 515. It will take 1 more leader to reach 516.

Another kabbalah secret, or Bible code is you will, is that the final letters of Torah phrases point to the future, and we must add 1 more to the final letters of Yosef (Joseph), Moshe (Moses) and David (PHD) to get the value of King (Melech), of numerical value 90. In the same way, if we replace David with the appellation King David, it still takes exactly 1 more to get 611, the numerical value of Torah.

Anyway you look at it we need 1 more, an alef, the leader to get where we want to go. The alef stands for Adam (EDM), in the Adam-David-Mashiach, but we’re not expecting Adam to come back; rather, we’re expected to reunite back as one soul as we were in Adam. One (1) stands for one (1) soul united. And we can’t unite unless we have one (1) leader to get behind. And that leader won’t appear unless we set aside our egos, personal agendas and desires and make a space (makom) for the Messiah (H’Mashiach) to enter.

Collectively the 3 leaders lived exactly 300 years, 6 jubilee years, which means we’ve been more or less direction-less for 5478 years, and 3330 since the giving of the Torah. Patriarchs, Prophets, Rabbis, and even some important Kings have filled in many of the gaps, and Torah has sustained us throughout, but now, more than ever, we a leader for the final push to the end of darkness, which incidentally has the numerical value of 333.

300 is the gematria for various Names of G-d (YHVH, Elohim, etc) in multiple way but we don’t need proof of Yosef’s, Moshe’s or David’s divine empowerment; what we need is a leader for the next 9 years, a period that promises to be full of turmoil and darkness. We don’t have a lot of time. Let’s all make the effort to make the space for the Messiah.

The final letters of Adam-David-Mashiach (MDCh) sum to, alternatively, 52, signifying Malchut, our world, physicality, and 612, using sofit/final letter gematria), which is the numerical value of Brit, Covenant. The Covenant is meant to be fulfilled. And we know when. Who it gets fulfilled for depends on our actions in the physical world, not how much we pray. It can be for everyone, but only if we’re united. To unite, we must individually make the choice and vow that this is what we really want. Then we must set our egos aside and let the Messiah in.

If we continue thinking only about ourselves, we will get want we desire, total chaos, darkness.

When you add light (Or) to darkness, you get 207 + 333 = 540. Add 1and you get 541, Israel

But add “the Light” (H’Or) to darkness, and you get 212 + 333 = 545. Add 1and you get 546, the Tree-of-Life.

Once we decide that that is what we really want we will get it. We will get our leader.

Make space in your hearts, yes, but even more important, make space in your lives for the One (1).

And once we give up the ego and the personal agendas, they won’t want the land. The entire world listened to Joseph. Four times as many people from other nations followed Moses than there were Israelites with him. And because of David we had the Holy Temple, and as the Zohar describes, him , David was Rosh Goyim, head of all the nations.  They wont desire the land anymore; they will desire the Light, the Messiah.

B”H we find the strength within us to make room for H’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 =


= 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


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

5708 HC = 1948 CE


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


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


King David lived 70 years

2854 + 2924 = 5778 HC


The Mid-point of King Davids life = 2889 HC

The Mid-point from Adam to Mashiach = 2889 HC


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


phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi = 5778

5778 HC = 2018 CE

Phi6 x Phi6 x Phi6 = 5778

6+6+6 = 18

[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.

King David and the Messiah

All the new wires are reporting a new archaeological find that will help verify the dates and importance of King David‘s reign. Talmudic scholars already have the dates and know the importance. The Divine Calendar helps explain exactly why Kind David and Solomon were born and died precisely when they did, along with most of the other  prominent  Biblical personages and events.

This excerpt from The Divine Calendar illustrates that point perfectly. There is no doubt to when King David lived or why:

Chapter 21

King David and the Messiah

It’s a Very Divine Plan

King David‘s Birth Marks Israel’s Statehood


he year when Israel was declared a State, 5708 HC, is exactly twice, the year that King David was born, or 2 x 2854 HC, and of course, King David is the David referred to in the title, Mashiach Ben David. Pause. With so many dates being hurled at you at the speed of the cosmos, it’s easy to miss very significant events and to pass them off casually. What we’re saying here is that the birth of King David marked the absolute midpoint from Adam (Creation) to the founding of the State of Israel, which only happened as a result of WW II, the Holocaust, guerrilla warfare, a few peoples’ dynamic persona, and a reluctant vote in spite of vehement Arab opposition by a fledgling United Nations. The Nation whose Flag carries the Magen David, the shield of David, officially became a state after thousands of years, on a date precisely double King David‘s birth year.

King David‘s Birth Marks Israel’s Statehood and Abraham’s Birth

Now, since these two dates aren’t linked in any way except divinely, how astonishing is it that 2854 HC is equivalent to 906 BCE and that 2854906 = 1948, the year Israel became a State in the Gregorian calendar. Let’s pause again. Adding those two dates gives us 3760; that happens automatically. There’s no magic there. Once 3760 HC was chose as year “0” or “1” the math will work like that for all the juxtaposed BCE dates. But subtracting them as we’ve just done; there’s no reason whatsoever that they should equate to anything other than pure chance. Now if we’d listed 200 different significant dates on our divine calendar then there would be a 1 in 20 chance of hitting one of them, but we didn’t. We only listed around 10 significant dates in total. And since the date 1948 was not only the year that Abraham was born in the Hebrew Calendar, but the matching Gregorian date to the one we’d just revealed in the equation just before it, the date Israel became a nation, the odds of this happening naturally are staggering. And the chance of any group of men organizing history to fall out this way is nil. There is only way this could happen.

And if all this isn’t sufficiently extraordinary, we must also consider that the year -906 BCE is exactly half of –1812 BCE, which once again is the year Abraham was born, but this time in the Gregorian calendar.

King David was born in 2854 HC

2 x 2854 HC = 5708 HC

Israel Received Statehood in 5708 HC

5708 HC = 1948 CE

2854 HC = 906 BCE

2854906 = 1948

2 x 906 BCE = 1812 BCE

1812 BCE = 1948 BCE

Abraham was born in 1948 BCE

King David‘s Birth and the 42 Letter Name

So it’s probably not a coincidence that 906 is the value of the seventh and final 6 letter sequence “שקו־צית” of the 42-letter Name of G-d, the line which according to the sages is specifically associated with [1]David.

Since, according to the sages of blessed memory, the 42-Letter Name (the Ana B’koach, also knows as the Genesis Prayer) is a ladder to the spiritual world and its 7 lines connecting to and representing the 7 lower sefirot (dimensions), when we factor in their 10 sub-dimensions per line, we see that the 42-Letter Name actually traverses 70 dimensions of time and space and spirit.

So taking all this into account, one may surely conclude that David‘s lifespan of 70 years and Abraham’s age at the time of his Covenant with G-d, also 70 years, are both part of a divine plan in which 70 is added to either 5708 HC and/or 1948 CE to get the year 5778 HC or 2018 CE, respectively, the year that their mutual descendant is predicted to become the Messiah.

King David‘s Life and Death Marked the Arrival of the Messiah

Another very potent way of looking at this is that when we add the year King David was born, 2854, with the year he died, 2924, we get 2854 + 2924 = 5778, the date prophesied by chazal for the Messiah. meaning that the coming of the Messiah, Mashiach Ben David, is completely marked by the life of King David from start to finish, and moreover that it also marks the midpoint from Adam to the Messiah.

King David was born in 2854

King David died in 2924

2854 + 2924 = 5778

King David‘s Life and Death Marked the G-d’s Covenant with Abraham

And if all that isn’t astonishing enough, the year King David was born, 906 BCE, when added to 836 BCE, the year he died, gives us 906 + 836 = 1742 BCE, which is the year the first exile began, the year of the Covenant of Abraham, 2018 HC.

King David was born in 906 BCE

King David died in 836 BCE

906 + 836 = 1742 BCE

1742 BCE = 2018 HC

King David‘s Life and Death Marked the Destruction of the Second Temple

Furthermore, if we take 906 BCE, the year King David was born in the Gregorian calendar, plus 2924, the year he died in the Hebrew calendar, we get 906 + 2924 = 3830, once and yet again the year the Second Temple was destroyed. And this destruction marked the beginning of the final exile, which is supposed to last 1948 years, the same amount of time the world had to wait for Abraham to come into it.

King David was born in 906 BCE

King David died in 2924 HC

906 + 2924 = 3830 HC

The Second Temple was Destroyed in 3830 HC

[1] David represent the 7th sefirah of Malchut.

article excerpted from the NY Times, Oct 30, 2008

“KHIRBET QEIYAFA, Israel — Overlooking the verdant Valley of Elah, where the Bible says David toppled Goliath, archaeologists are unearthing a 3,000-year-old fortified city that could reshape views of the period when David ruled over the Israelites.

The 10th century B.C. is the most controversial period in biblical archaeology because it is then, according to the Old Testament, that David united the kingdoms of Judah and Israel, setting the stage for his son Solomon to build his great temple and rule over a vast area from the Nile to the Euphrates Rivers.

For many Jews and Christians, even those who do not take Scripture literally, the Bible is a vital historical source. And for the state of Israel, which considers itself to be a reclamation of the state begun by David, evidence of the biblical account has huge symbolic value. The Foreign Ministry’s Web site, for example, presents the kingdom of David and Solomon along with a map of it as a matter of fact.

But the archaeological record of that kingdom is exceedingly sparse — in fact almost nonexistent — and a number of scholars today argue that the kingdom was largely a myth created some centuries later. A great power, they note, would have left traces of cities and activity, and been mentioned by those around it. Yet in this area nothing like that has turned up — at least until now.

Mr. Garfinkel says he has something here that generations have been seeking. He has made two informal presentations in the past month to fellow archaeologists. On Thursday he will give his first formal lecture at a conference in Jerusalem.

What he has found so far has impressed many. Two burned olive pits found at the site have been tested for carbon-14 at Oxford University and were found to date from between 1050 and 970 B.C., exactly when most chronologies place David as king.”

Israel and Abraham

The year Israel became a nation, 1948 CE, has much significance as detailed in The Divine Calender but when we add the numerical value for Israel, 541 to 1948, we get 1948 + 541 = 2489, which is 2480 + 9. The Names of the Five Books of Moses (Bereshit, Shmot, Vayikra, B’midbar, and Devarim) add up to 2480, which in itself is 10 x 248, the numerical value of Abraham, which is interesting because Abraham was born in 1948 HC and 541 years later, was 2489 HC, the year after Moses died in 2488.
As spelled out in The Genesis Prayer, 9 is a very significant number, not just because it represents Chochma, the 9th Sefira, etc, but because when we divide the number 9 by small gematria version of the 42 letter name, we get 9/.123049027395… = 73.1415777 or extremely accurately, 70 + Pi and since 73 is the value for Chochma, and there are 70 nations in the world according to the Zohar, etc and Pi is integrally connected with the Torah’s first verse it’s very fitting.
Now while 5777-5778 is the year prophesied for the arrival of Mashiach, the final letters of each of the 7 lines of the 42-Letter Name add up to 2480.
