G-d Never Abandoned His People

pillar of smoke1In the nearly 5778 years of our existence since Adam, we have had the connection to the Creator through the Ark of the Covenant in our midst for only 890 years, just 26.72% of the 3330 years since it was given to us. Or so we were led to believe. The truth is we always had it. It has been at our fingertips all along. The Ark, the Tabernacle, the direct connection to G-d, and all that is Holy in the universe has been concealed, wrapped up tight and handed to us at the moment of Creation. It has actually never left our sight or been denied to us, not in exile, nor in our denial.

There is a prayer or meditation that many of us know as the Ana B’koach or 42-Letter Name of G-d matrix that is extremely powerful in changing or shifting reality. Yet few of us have a real inkling as to how powerful these 42 Letters really are or how much technology is embedded in them. It is even more than that though. Everything in the Torah and our divinely inspired history is encapsulated into it. It is the blueprint to Creation drafted on a level we cannot fathom.

Still, a little kabbalistic decoding gives us insights into some of that primordial imprinting and thus genesis prayer coverallows us to tap into that Power and those Biblical reference points as if we were there in the moment. One can ask, “What can that do for us?” It can give us, what we refer to today as “miracles.” Further, when we know the right power points it can give us more specific and more powerful ones. Some of these concealed connections were revealed in the book, The Genesis Prayer and in a few of our articles. As we get closer and closer to the time of Moshiach (the Messiah), it becomes more imperative that we tap into this energy and make stronger connections to the Creator and to the energy of Creation.

To those that are unfamiliar with the power of the 42-Letter Name, we should first note that it was the Arizal, one the most knowledgeable and powerful kabbalists of all time, who told us that no prayer could be elevated without it. Second, as Rav Brandwein, the Admor of Stretin of blessed memory, said, “It is through the understanding of the 42-Letter Name that Moshiach will come.” Third, the Ana B’koach can drill through anything in this world, no matter how thick the negativity—all you need is a deeper understanding as to what it connects and to recite it, sometimes multiple times if the situation calls for it. What you will experience is that the layers of negativity will peel away like the skins of an onion, and the finely stacked layers of parallel universes will dissolve until you come to the one with the positive outcome you need.

 We are revealing today a series of newly unveiled ancient connections that will both help to explain the technology behind the 42-Letter Matrix and give you greater control over the evil inclination and protection from evil in general; two advantages we need more than ever in these times.

Of all the processes and tools G-d gave to us regarding the Holy Temple and the Mishkan (Tabernacle), nothing is more powerful as a protection against the forces of evil than the 11-incense. In Vayak’hel, the Zohar Vol. 12:466 tells us that “whoever smelled the smoke coming from the pillar rising from the smoke raiser, would cleanse his heart totally to worship his Master, and the filth of the Evil Inclination would pass from him…nothing in the world breaks the Other Side except incense… It can revoke sorcery, and evil things at home.”

What good would all that do if the recipe for the incense was lost and the Mishkan was gone as well? pillar of smoke2Fortunately, the energy of the recipe, the altar, the 11-incense, its pillar of smoke, and of Aaron, the High Priest were all captured in the 42-Letter Matrix, preserved for all time.

Found in the 2nd line of the matrix (קרעשטן) are 3 of the 4 letters in ketoret (KTtRT, קטרת ) the Hebrew word for incense plus the letter Tav ) found in the 1st line, just above the letter Tet (ט). As we have written about it previously, this 2nd line in particular is especially powerful for protection and literally means to “tear out Satan, the evil inclination.”

The smoke from the 11-incense is known in the Torah as Ashen (AShN, עשן ) of numerical value 420 (or 10 times 42), and it too is found in perfect sequence within the 2nd line (קרעשטן).

In Exodus 30:8, after G-d states that Aaron should light the incense twice a day, the ketoret offering is described as “Thus, for all generations there will be incense before G-d at all times,” indicating it was meant to outlast the presence of the Mishkan and Holy Temples. As explained by Rav Kook, the ketoret linked the material and spiritual realms. As opposed to ordinary smoke, the ashen rose straight up, connecting our physical realm with the heavenly, much as the Ana B’koach does.

Starting off the 6 letters of the 4th line (בט-רצתג), which itself has the numerical value of ketoret (KTtRT, קטרת) when the kolel is included, are the two letters (בט) which have the numerical value of 11. These same two letters (בט) are found again in the center of the 5th line (חק-בט-נע).

The word ketoret means connecting; it is the incense that the High Priest, such as Aaron would offer up tree of life 11 Engtwice a day. It was an offering to G-d. The two times (בט) of numerical value 11 are included within the 42-Letter matrix represent the 2 times a day the offering is supposed to be made. The 11 spices in the incense mixture connect both to the 11 unique letters in the Torah’s first verse and the 11 sefirot in the Tree-of-Life when Da’at is included. These 11 unique letters have a complete value (ordinal plus standard gematria) of 1214, the exact numerical value of “70 languages” (שבעים לשונות), corresponding to the 70 nations, as explained by Rav Abulafia or blessed memory, who went on to say that 1214 is the exact value for the “permutation of the letters” (צירוף האותיות).

The final column of the 6 column matrix also contains the word for smoke ashen (AShN, עשן ) within the first 5 rows, and the two letters of the 5 final ones of those lines that were not utilized in that word are the tzadi and the gimmel (ץג) which together have the numerical value of 903, which is the sum of all the integers from 1 to 42.

 The altar upon which the incense was placed in the Mishkan is called in Hebrew the Mizbeach (מזבח) of numerical value 57, the same is the 1st triplet of the 3rd line of the 42-Letter Name matrix (נגד). Notice how it is situated just below the words for ketoret and smoke (ashen) within the matrix. Notice also how the smoke (ashen, עשן ) flows upward sequentially from below in a straight pillar.

cinnamonCinnamon was one of the 11 spices and in Hebrew it is spelled cinnamon (KYNMVN קינמון) and it has the same gematria value as both Aaron and as the last line of the 42-Letter Name (שקו צית). This is very important because while Moses’ and Miriam’s names are also found concealed within the 42-Letter Name matrix, we will discuss this shortly in our next installment, Aaron must be present for the ketoret to be accepted. Otherwise it would be considered as “strange fire,” which not only led to the deaths of Nadav and Avihu, but also to the deaths of his cousin Korach and his 250 followers. By incorporating Aaron’s name at the level of malchut, the 7th line, Aaron’s energy is present and available to us today to elevate our prayers and offerings throughout the 42-Letter chambers. It was Aaron who used the incense to bind the Angel of Death and end the plague. And it is Aaron’s name (not anyone else’s) which is associated in the Torah with Moshiach,

The embedded technology of the rising incense continues upward through the 1st line and uppermost line of the Ana B’koach, the line associated with Chesed. This final processing point before our prayers are elevated has the gematria of 506, and as delineated in The Genesis Prayer, this is also the same as numerical value of “Unconditional love” and is also the complete (standard plus ordinal) gematria value of “Moshiach Ben David.” The value 506 also matches up with the 506 times that the 14 triplets that comprise the 42-Letter Name are found within the Torah. What has not been revealed before is that 506 equals the sum of the squares of the integers from 1 to 11, and thus we find just as our prayers are about to rise that their strength and the power of the 11-incense are exponentially magnified.

12 + 22 + 32 + 42 + 52 + 62 +72 + 82 + 92 + 102 + 112 = 506

When the energy builds and passes through the 11th expansion it leaves our realm entirely and rises upwards to the highest levels.

What awaits our prayers above is the Upper 42-letter Name, which is the conduit through which all our prayers from below are processed and the blessings channeled. The numerical value of the 42 Letters in this expansion of the Ineffable Name (יהוה) is the same as that of ketoret (KTtRT, קטרת ) plus the kolel of 1, completing the divine technological loop.

How important is this connection within the Ana B’koach? Rabbi Shimon in the Zohar wrote:

zohar setZohar 12:468: It is a standing decree before the Holy One, blessed be He that whoever looks at and reads every day the section of the preparation of the ketoret, he is protected from all things evil and sorcery in the world, from mishap, from evil thoughts, from harsh judgment, and from death, and shall not come to harm on that day, for the Other Side may have no power over him… Rabbi Shimon said, if people would know how exalted the concept of the ketoret is before the Holy One, blessed be He, they would take every single word in it and raise it as a crown on their head like a golden crown…If he concentrates on it every day, he has a portion both in this world and in the World to Come. Death is banished from him and from the world, and he will be protected from prosecution in this world, from the ordeal of Gehenom and from judgment in this world.”

We know from the tzaddikim that the deep understanding and use of the Ana B’koach will help bring about Moshiach in our lifetime, therefore understanding that the ketoret, according to the Zohar Vol. 12:470, “creates unity, above and below, so that everything becomes one,” is crucial, as is also using the 42-Letter Name with intent and knowledge. It was always known that neither the Mishkan nor Aaron would be physically available to us to prepare and light the incense in these critical days when the Other Side in its death throes is at its strongest. Therefore their energy and DNA was preserved for us at the time of Creation.

To be continued with the connections to Moses, Miriam and healing…

The Earthquake and the Flood.

According to the prologue to the Zohar, there are 2 malchuts, 2 staging vessels for the Light within the schematic of the Tree-of-life, one at the end of the first 4, or upper, expansions and the second at the end of the bottom 3 expansions, or the 7th–analogous to the 4th and 7th days of Creation. According to the same section, the borders of Shabbat are 2000 cubits, which the Zohar attributes to the Hebrew article, ET (את).

dccover3dAs explored in The Divine Calender and repeatedly in our articles, there’s little that happened in the Bible or in the history of Israel whose dates can’t easily be shown to be interconnected to each other and to both the Hebrew and Western Calendars.

On May 18th and 19th, 363 CE, Israel experienced two of its most devastating earthquakes, which is numerically odd in that 363 is the gematria value of H’Mashiach, the Messiah. Nothing happens below that doesn’t happen above spiritually first; nevertheless, a powerful earthquake can be thought of a tremendous judgment from below in the realm of malchut.

In 1656 HC, the flood began, this time tremendous judgment from above, though it did wash away nearly everything in the world of malchut.

Adding together the Judgment from above and the Judgment from below, we not only get a whole lot of Judgement, but 363 + 1656 = 2019, the year prophesied for the new beginning.

As you can read in There’s Nothing Random in the Universe, there are 2 sets of 4-digit numerical PiBook6strings reproduced 3 times with the first 1000 digits of Pi, a mathematical improbability to say the least. and what’s astonishing is that those triply repeated numerical strings are 5778 (the year 2018 CE) and 2019, giving us back to back years: 2018 and 2019 CE.

What happens when we cross the borders of the 2000 cubits? A hint may lie in the complete numerical value of the Hebrew article, ET (את), the 4th of the 7 words in the Torah’s first verse. The standard value of this word is 401 and its ordinal (or alphabet place value) is 23, giving us a total or complete value of 401 + 23 = 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David. B”H, may He come in His time.

Incidentally, the Torah is built on the principle that no energy is ever lost and thus the number 4 is equivalent to all the integers that lead up to it, thus 4+3+2+1 = 10 and 7+6+5+4+3+2+1 = 28 and while the product of the levels of the 2 malchuts gives us 4 x 7 = 28, as in the 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse, the product of their sums, 10 x 28 = 280, is the numerical value of the 5 final Hebrew letters associated with both Judgment and the final days, and also to the time of Moshiach, which B”H will be the new beginning.

Chodesh Tov


The Tallit is Much More than a Prayer Shawl.

Most of the Torah portion Tetzaveh is about two articles of the clothing that the high priest wore during the time of the Mishkan, the Tabernacle. They are of little use to us today or indeed over the last 2800 years, no matter how wondrous they were then. So why do we read about them in such tedious detail every year?
ks-kohengadolThe Choshen /חֹשֶׁן /breastplate and the Ephod /אֵפוֹד /apron are attached together and support each other as they cover the high priest. What made them special was the 42-Letter Name and 72-Letter Name that was folded up inside them, thus enabling the High priest to receive Divine answers to all the Israelites’ questions.

The Torah refers to the folded article with the Names on it as Umim and Tumim (את האורים ואת התמים) which is non-coincidentally reminiscent to the phrase Heaven and Earth (את השמים ואת הארץ) found in the Torah’s first verse which itself is derived from the 42-Letter Name. The Umim and Tumim were designed to be worn over the high priest’s heart which is where spiritually we should hold these names. While the word V’et (ואת) is a marker in the Torah whose square root of it’s numerical value is 20.17424, indicative of Moshiach Ben David (424) in the year 2017, the gematria of the first and final letters in Umim and Tumim (את האורים ואת התמים) is also 2017.  As in the beginning, Heaven and Earth will be once again unified. The Torah is giving us clues how we can do our part. 2017 CE or 5778 HC is the year given by Rav Ashlag for the coming of Moshiach (the Messiah) and the final redemption (Geulah).

The gematria of Choshen / חֹשֶׁן is the same as that of Mashiach (358) and the Ephod / אֵפוֹד contains the anabkoach160-ksword pad (redemption) whose gematria, as Rav Brandwein pointed out, is twice 42, representing the unification of the upper and lower Shem Mem-Bet (42-Letter Name) necessary for the geulah, final redemption. Moreover, the word Ephod/ אֵפוֹדis spelled later in the portion with a vav (ו) which brings the numerical value of the apron that supports the breastplate to 91, the same as amen and the unification of the Tetragrammaton with Adonai (יאהדונהי), the kabbalistic fusion of the upper and lower worlds that are made when we answer amen to a blessing.

These powerful connections makes perfect sense for the High Priest, as representative of the entire Israelite people before G-d, but what does it mean for us today?

The gematria of ”Choshen and Ephod” ו’אֵפד חֹשֶׁן = 449, which is the same as tallit / טלית, the prayer shawl many of us don everyday for prayers.

Man-praying-at-the-Western-wall-in-a-traditional-Tallit-or-Prayer-Shawl-_-by-Beggs_cropIt is no wonder then that the Torah goes into such detail in the making of the Choshen and Ephod; it is obviously something very powerful, and one to which we can connect everyday.

Whoever wears a tallit is most probably wearing it for all the right reasons; nonetheless, there is so much more we can get out of the experience.

For several years I was blessed to be able to stand beside Rav Berg of blessed memory and to say “amen” for him every morning when he donned his tallit; because there I learned close up what a wonderous moment it was for him and could be likewise for us.

Those first moments with the tallit wrapped across your face and over your shoulder should not be rushed through; besides the Ohr Makief (surrounding light) we receive they can be moments of clear and divinely-sent visions, and of receiving messages and images of the tzaddikim. As with the breastplate of the high priest, the shining light is available to us as well. We only need to know that we can connect to it.

Please pass this on to anyone who puts on a tallit; knowledge is power and armed with the knowledge of what their tallit connects to their prayers will be so much more powerful. Let us pray for the prompt arrival of Moshiach and for the final redemption at the appointed time. There is much work and preparation to be done; we can start by aligning our thoughts with Moshiach consciousness.

New Revelations About the Ana B’koach, the 42-Letter Name of G-d.

It was the Rav Brandwein, the Strettiner Rav of blessed memory, who said that the understanding of this prayer will give us the deep understanding needed to bring the Geulah, the final Redemption. The Baal Shem Tov, knowing he was speaking of a future time, said something similar 300 years earlier.  As the time of the redemption approaches it is imperative that we take their message to heart.  The 42-Letter Name was G-d’s first gift to Man; it is also our most important one.

It’s now 13 years since I revealed some of the discoveries that Rav Berg, may his memory be for a blessing, made about the Ana B’koach (the Shem Mem-Bet or 42-Letter Name).  At the urging of Rav Brandwein, I have since had the privilege  to reveal many more of them, though not recently. It is time to step it up and reveal yet a few more. Over the next week or so, we will explain several heretofore unrevealed secrets and connects regarding the 42-Letter Name Matrix.  As Rav Abulafia said many centuries ago, “Everything gets revealed in its time and nothing gets revealed without heavenly permission.”

The first of these new revelations was actually written about nearly 2000 years ago by Rabbi Shimon Baranabkoach160-ks Yochai in the Zohar (The Book of Splendor) and it is about protection. According to the Zohar, in portion Terumah, the letters  KRAShTtN (קרעשטן) of the 2nd line of the 42-Letter Name matrix are used to guard against negative forces.  They are so powerful that they were “marked outside the Tabernacle in order to guard the Tabernacle, which is the secret of the Holy Covenant…”

As the very next line NGDYCSh (נגדיכש) of the 42-Letter Name represents the Tabernacle (Mishkan,משכן) itself, we can easily see why it was placed just before it.  The secrets of the 3rd line (נגדיכש) are for our next post.

The line KRAShTtN (קרעשטן), a name unto itself, is also associated with Rosh Hashanah and all the blowings of the Shofar, and we will go into that when we get closer to that holiday. For now, just note that both the Name and the shofar are tools to fight harsh and severe judgments.  All three types of shofar blasts, the individual blasts, and all the small and large sets of blasts are encoded into this line, so that on 363 days of the year when it is not Rosh Hashanah, the Ana B’koach can act as a stand-in for the shofar warding off evil and evil inclinations within and without.


We usually use this 2nd line to help us remove the negativity within ourselves, our selfish desires, to genesis prayer coverhelp us let go of the baggage that is holding us back, and to block off those small gates through which negativity can enter our lives.  For more on that and all the other connections of the prayer that will help us usher in Mashiach consciousness to the world and bring the final redemption please refer to The Genesis Prayer.  Meanwhile, it behooves us to protect ourselves from any and all outside forces, forces that are quickly building in the world today. What better way to protect ourselves than to use the Name that the kabbalists used to protect us on the Day of Judgment and that Moses and the Israelites used to protect the Tabernacle itself.
