A Sign in the Sky

For 20 years we have been writing about the confluence of calendars that is to come when the year 5778 meets 2018.  The first time we were at 2018 was in the Hebrew Calendar 3760 years ago. This when G-d made the Covenant of Halves with Abraham, splitting the offerings half on one side, half on the other.  The confluence will happen this week. It will be marked by the largest Super Moon of the year this Jan 1-2, and by the Earth being the closest to Sun on Jan 3-4.  The process is beginning…

The largest and brightest Supermoon on recent record was on Jan 26, 1948, 70 years ago, the year Israel became a nation.  1948 in the Hebrew Calendar was when Abraham was born.

From the 28 times in Ecclesiastes 3:2-8 we see the obvious juxtaposition to easy times and difficult ones, 14 on either side, like 2 hands. It is also like the sum of the 365 positive and 248 negative precepts in the Torah: 3+6+5+2+4+8 = 28, split 14 positive and 14 negative. What is only obvious in the Hebrew text is the juxtaposition between the words for time, (ועת and  עת) so similar to the placement of G-d’s hands in the Torah’s first 28 letter verse at (ואת and  את). One has the Aleph (א) of numerical value 1 and the other Ayin (ע) of numerical value 70. In the beginning 1 and at the end 70; there is a time to every purpose under heaven.  The numerical value of (ועת and  עת) plus the kolel for the 2 times equals 948. This is similar to 1948 when we add the Aleph (1000), which is 70 years prior to 2018 CE or 5778 HC.

At digit 948 within the telling first 1000 digits in Pi, there is string of numbers …5778185778 that include 2 of the three appearances of the number 5778 within those 1000 digits.  Why 2 times? Why 2 juxtaposed 5778’s? Will there be 2 different scenarios for time after 5778? Within those 1000 digits there is no string for 2018, but there are three of 2019. Two back to back years represented unfathomably within a mere 1000 digits, representing 2 entwined calendars, one an end of time, the other a beginning of a new time. But for whom. Who witnesses the end of time and who the beginning?

Much has been revealed about Pi, Phi and 18 in our books and previous articles and there is still much more that needs to be revealed.  One item of note that we have not yet revealed even beyond the 42-Letter Name giving us 9/.123049…= 73.1415777 or (70 + pi). And even beyond the Genesis Equation built into the Torah’s first verse of 28 letters that gives us Pi as 3.141545078… And even beyond the Zohar’s unfathonable secret about Pi is simply that Pi/2 or 3.14159265358…/2 = 1.5708, which gives us the year Israel became a nation in 5708 HC (1948 CE) 70 years ago this May.

Happy New Years to All, as this New Years is marked by both Calendars and by Hashem in our Skies, both by Day and by Night, a sign for all to see.

The Shot that should have been Heard Around the World.

Last weekend, we mentioned that the events of last week had profound repercussions for the world, mankind, and that the battle had begun. We weren’t prognosticating the crashing world markets, or the advent of phase II of the global economic crises, but given what we’ve learned from the 10 Commandments, it’s not surprising.

Last Thursday, on the death-anniversary of Joseph HaZaddik, one of the most powerful zaddiks (righteous souls) of our generation was assassinated. He was one of the lamed-vav, one of the 36 righteous souls that act as pillars to support our world, Rabbi Elazar Abuhatzeira.

Rabbi Elazar Abuhatzeira, the grandson of Rabbi Yisrael Abuhatzeira, known as the Baba Sali, was stabbed to death on Thursday night in Be’er Sheva while he was hosting guests for consultation at a yeshiva near his home.  That he was murdered on 7/28, that he was murdered in Be’er Sheva, that his assailant was 42 years old, and that Rabbi Elazar Abuhatzeira was born in 1948, like Abraham Avinu and the Nation of Israel, were not coincidental.

If you recall your history books, World War I started because of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria in Sarajevo, 1914.  A single event, a single murder led to death and destruction of millions.

And even more to the point, recall that before Al Queda attacked the United States on 9/11, he and his Taliban cohorts, assassinated the charismatic leader of the mujahedin in a preemptive move to seriously weaken any US retaliation.

Immediately following the assassination of Rabbi Elazar Abuhatzeira, we have  experienced the physically unrelated mass resignation of Turkey’s secular military chiefs and their subsequent replacement by those appointed by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Islamic party.  We’ve also seen a heightened ruthlessness on the part of the mid-east dictators to stamp out their democratic uprisings. And it’s only been a week.

It’s notable Rabbi Elazar Abuhatzeira was murdered in Beer Sheva as we wrote last November about how Beer Sheva would be connected to the geula in a significant way, and about how the prophetic Torah coding about this was found in the 63rd paragraph of the Torah.

It’s notable that the Rabbi, who was born the year Israel was founded, born to protect Israel, was mysteriously murdered at the age of 63, 7 years prior to the fulfillment of the prophecies in 5778 (2018 ce) in Beer Sheva, the 7th well, and 7th largest city in Israel and site of the Israeli IDF victory over the Egyptians in the 7th Month of 5708 (1948) .

Most of the news sources say he was 70 years old, which could make sense if it were true, but it does show the power of illusion, of the limitations of the Tree-of-Knowledge reality, to misdirect our thoughts. Yes, he should have been 70 and he would have been in 2018 (5778) when he would have helped shepard us into the Tree-of-life reality.

As all the tzaddikim of blessed memory, he will help and guide us from beyond, but as per the purpose of the preemptive strike against him and us, and just as the evil Al Queda did to us before 9/11, our work will now be that much more difficult.

Yes, the murderer was just some deranged man, but who gets into the head of the deranged? Make no mistake, it will be a battle to establish the tree-of-life reality. It’s only been a week, and look what is happening to the world financial markets. Don’t forget, the first phase (wave) of this economic collapse was heralded with a 5% 777.78 drop on Erev Rosh Hashanna 2008.

As for gematria, Rabbi Elazar Abuhatzeira is traditionally and kabablistically known as Elazar ben Meir, the gematria of which is 611, that of “Torah,”a hint to his status of pillar, our support.

The 70 Nations Are Going Down; The Battle Has Begun

In a brief continuation from Fish, Fowl, and Nuclear Radiation, Symptoms, Not Signs, we’d like to add a couple insights from this week’s short 67 verse Torah portion, Tazria, and the corresponding teachings of the Arizal enlightenment.

Binah, the sefira (dimension) of understanding, one of the upper 3, has the numerical value 67, which is the first clue that this portion contains some important hidden “understanding” for us.

Let’s first note that the portion begins with and is all about the uncleanliness (spiritual impurity) that resulted from the snake’s intimate relations with Eve, which created the separation of Jew and Gentile souls and the admixture of good and evil in Eve’s womb. That said, we once again are faced with the battle of good vs evil in the power of the Cohen (HCHN) vs the plague (h’negah, HNGA).

As we said in our ultimate article about the events playing out this year around the world, the symptoms all point to problems in the critical sefira of Yesod of Zeir Anpin.

On the side of good we have the Cohen(HCHN), of standard numerical value 80, the same as Yesod (YSVD) gematria, and of complete gematria sofit value of 777, as in 5777 (2017 CE).

On the side of evil we have the plague (NGY) of numerical value 123 and ordinal value 33 for a complete value of 156, the same as Joseph whose energy is associated with Yesod.

Now, according to the Arizal this battle is played out by the dark angel Samael, who we showed to be connected to the current events, and who is in charge of the supernal princes of the 70 nations, and by Michael, who is guardian of Israel and who presides over the 70 sages of the Great Assembly, corresponding to the 70 souls of Jacob.

The good news is that the word for the Cohen(HCHN) is found 57 times in this portion, up to and including the 107th times this word is used in the Torah, and as we’ve written about extensively, the sum of all the positive integers through 107 is 5778. And note that HaCohen is the only word in the Torah tied to the word Moshiach, the Messiah.

The word for plague (negah, NGA) is found 13 times in this portion, and 13 is the numerical value of love, ahava. Together the occurrences in this portion of the Cohen(HCHN) and plague (negah, NGA) are found 70 times, connecting this battle to the epic one that has already begun.

If we look at the word for plague in this portion with all its prefixes, such “the plague (HNGA)” and “and the plague (VHNGA), there are 31 more, making 44 in total, as in Dam, blood, the first of the 10 Plagues in Egypt.

However, 44 occurrence of “plagues” and 57 of “the Cohen” total 101 together, as in the numerical value of the archangel Michael, the angelic personification of chesed, all that is good.

What is this plague? The Torah was referring to a condition that existed only while the Tabernacle and Holy Temple existed. Today it might refer to any number of afflictions.  The only thing we know is that Fukushima Daiichi continually spewing toxic radiation into the atmosphere cant be good, and that the fish and bird kills are both symptoms of what ails us and signs that our environment is not healthy.

The Arizal explains that 70 years is the maximum number of The Divine Calendaryears of suffering that an individual can be decreed.  If we extrapolate that to a Nation we see that the Babylonian exile of the Jewish nation lasted exactly 70 years and that the year 5778 (2017-18  ce) will be the 70th year of the Israeli nation, formed in 5708 (1948 CE).

The upheaval throughout the Mid-East and the dethroning of their rulers is because the 70 supernal princes are falling one by one.  As above, so goes below.

The spiritual concept of time is a more spatial one and therefore 7 days, 7 years and 70 years are all cut from the same cloth, so when this portion also speaks about the baby boy transcending the 7 days and being circumcised on the 8th, the tzaddikim understood this to mean the 7 years of the birth pangs of the Moshiach and the fulfillment of his brit (Covenant) in the 8th year.

7 years from 2011, when the nations started falling, is 2018, and ironically, it was in 2018 HC that G-d made His Covenant with Abraham, 70 years after he was born.

The Power of the Shema Israel, Part I

The deeper the secrets, the more important they are. The Shema Israel prayer is the most well known and widely recited Jewish prayer, yet most people recite it without a clue to its many secrets.  When I completed The Genesis Prayer on the Ana B’koach (42-Letter Name), my teacher advised me to write about the Shema, but I never did get around to it, besides a lengthy comment here and there in the blog, so here is part I in a series about the Shema, which we will, bli neder, complete over time.

Today, I’d like to reveal a few secrets about the initial 6 word refrain that begins the prayer in order to give us all the kavanot (or directed consciousness) when we do recite it, and to reveal why it is recited so often.

But first, I’ll let Aisha Torah give a brief introduction, and by all means please read the rest of their article on the Shema Yisrael — “Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One” — is perhaps the most famous of all Jewish sayings.

“The Shema is a declaration of faith, a pledge of allegiance to One God. It is said upon arising in the morning and upon going to sleep at night. It is said when praising God and when beseeching Him. It is the first prayer that a Jewish child is taught to say. It is the last words a Jew says prior to death.

“The Talmud says that when Jacob was about to reveal the end of days to his children, he was concerned that one of them might be a non-believer. His sons reassured him immediately and cried out, “Shema Yisrael.”

“The Torah records Moses including the Shema in his farewell address to the Jewish people.

“We recite Shema when preparing to read the Torah on Sabbaths and festivals. And we recite Shema at the end of the holiest day of Yom Kippur when we reach the level of angels.

“Shema is contained in the mezuzah we affix to the doorpost of our home, and in the tefillin that we bind to our arm and head.”

Now, as for those six words:

Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One

As you may have noticed there is a large letter Ayin and Dalet in the first and last of the 6 words, which should have made all of us take notice of these 2 words in particular, but as my teacher’s teacher often said, what is least noticed is most important.

The first and last word of the famous verse, the words with enlarged final letters, Shema – Echad (ShMA – EchD), connect to Moshiach Ben David as will be explained shortly, and the enlarged letters, Ayin and Dalet, spell “witness” as the sages have told us, but they also have the numerical values 70 and 4 respectively.

The significance of this lies in the Zohar’s explanation of the coming of Moshiach and the end of the 4th exile at the end of the 70 years. And 70 years from Israel’s statehood in 1948 is also the end of the 4th exile that began 1948 years earlier in 70 CE with the destruction of the Second Holy Temple, giving us 2018 (5778 HC), the date Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag also gave us.  Pay close attention to what the verse says:

Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One.

And pay close attention to where the verse is found: (Deuteronomy) Devarim 6:4 because the ordinal value of the name Israel (YShREL) is also 64. The verse is all about Israel.

The Shema is about Israel

We will save the real meaning of the word AD produced by these 2 large letters (Ayin and Dalet) for another article we’re preparing that deals with the final redemption and concentrate instead on the two words themselves today.

The first word is Shema (ShMA), of numerical value 410, the same as the word Kadosh, Holy) and the last word is Echad (EChD) of numerical value 13, the same as the word Ahava (love) and connected to the 13 attributes of G-d. So together we can take them to mean, “Hear One,” as in one voice, or “Hear Love” or “Holy One” or even, “Holy Love.” Nevertheless and regardless of how we take them, they add up together, including the kolel of 1, to 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David, the Messiah.

The Shema is about bringing Mashiach Ben David

The Shema Israel comes from the Torah (Devarim 6:4) and all the technology of the Torah is designed to help us bring about Moshiach consciousness and prepare is to receive the Tree-of-Life reality when the window of opportunity (gates) opens in the next few years, which is why it is so important we understand what we are praying and why my teacher wanted me to reveal this now.

But don’t forget that we have to play our part too.  Being aware of the encoded technology is very important, but keeping our thoughts pure and focused on the elevation, on the unification and Oneness with G-d (YHVH), and on the divine and unconditional love is even more important.

End of Part I. Part II to follow shortly.
