Have you ever wondered how we know so many of the secrets that you haven’t been able to find elsewhere? Ask yourself where we started our journey?
In this week’s Torah portion (Pekudei), referring to the redemption, the Tabernacle, H’Miskan (HMShCN) was built and there’s lots to say about that, but for now we’ll be brief. Like so much more in the Torah, it connects to Creation itself and to the very first verse of the Torah, and that verse is derived from the 42-Letter Name (Ana B’koach) .
As these excerpts from Zohar (The Book of Splendor) explain, it was only through the letters of the 42-Letter name that the Mishkan was built, and only because Moses possessed the 173–Keys (the 42 Letter Name, of small gematria 173) that he was able to erect it. But first, did you notice that the first 3 letters of H’Miskan (HMShCN) spelled out Moshe (MShH)
Zohar Pekudei 272. “This is the mystery-why the tabernacle was erected only by Moses, since from that side of Moses (Zeir Anpin), another high grade, Binah bestirred itself to establish the tabernacle, Malchut, so there will be sustenance for all. This is the secret of ‘and Moses erected the Tabernacle’ erecting it by these letters with which heaven and earth were created, referring to the Name of 42.”
Zohar Pekudei 273.
“So Betzalel carried out the work of the Tabernacle using the secret of the engraved letters with which heaven and earth were created, namely the Name 42….Unless he knew them, he could not have dome the work in the Tabernacle. The sense thereof is that as the upper Tabernacle was built, and all its actions done, only by the secret of these letters, of the Name 42, so here is the Tabernacle below, nothing was built save by the secret of these letters.”
Zohar Pekudei 273.
“Betzalel was combining the letters of the Name 42, and did the various works with different combinations of thereof. He used each combination to do one task, and all that pertains to it. And so with all the works in the Tabernacle, together with its parts and amendments, he used combinations of the letters of the Holy Name 42.
If the 42-Letter Name could build the Tabernacle, which brought sustenance to the world by uniting the dimensions of Binah and Malchut through Zeir Anin and indeed created heaven and earth, as no less an authority than the Zohar and Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai tell us, then what can the 42-Letter Name do for you?
What can’t it do for you? Are you using it enough? Are you using it to be proactive? (If aren’t familiar enough with it, please read The Genesis Prayer).
Chazal tells us that it’s through the understanding of the 42-Letter Name that the geula (final redemption) will happen. Considering all that it’s done already, is there any doubt that it can do that as well?
The secrets of the combing of the letters will be revealed over time in this blog. Some have already been given, some were revealed in he Genesis Prayer.
Everyone’s help is requested in this matter. If anyone of you is a programmer and would like to help us rewrite the gematria programs to reveal more of the secrets locked in the Torah, please just write in to us.
One of the secrets of this portions was that it took 3 different types of energy to manifest the Tabernacle as reflected in the gold, silver and bronze collected, and that everyone’s money was accepted; the Tabernacle was for everyone present and participating, all 3 million of them. We’ll save the mathematical explanation of that for another article, but safe to say that if there were 603,550 men, there were a similar number of women and even more children.
Help us to help the world in any way you can; everyone deserves a chance to know about the 42-Letter Name. The blueprint for the Holy Temple exists; everyone can share in the process.
