## The 10 Commandments Part IX: The Ultimate Revelation

…Continued from The Ten Commandments

There was going to be 10 parts to this series, but due to the unfolding crisis in Japan, we felt it best to skip  to the most critical and most significant revelations about and from the 10 Commandments, those critical to our understanding of what is happening in our world today. Our last article in the series was the encoded timing for the Moshiach (messiah) and of the final redemption, and of those few sols that managed to cross over 3330 years ago during the last opening of the Tree-of-life reality at Mt Sinai.

The Alter

The word Mizbayach (MtzBCh), the Alter, whose construction is described in detail in the 3rd (middle) of the 5 special portions has the numerical value of 62, as in Keter, the highest sefira (dimension) of numerical value 620, just as so many other connections to the 10 Commandments( Utterances), including the 620 letters and the 62 letter Yuds of the 10 Commandments that were engraved on the 2 Tablets housed in the Tabernacle (MishKan). And this all fits since there are 100 (an appellation of Keter) occurrences of the word H’Mizbeach in the Torah, 22 of them through chapter 34 and the carving of the second set of tablets, which terminates the special 5 portion set of 22,000 letters.

And contained within the Hebrew word for “The Alter” (HMzBCh) are the  initials of the 42-Letter Name (Mem-Bet) so integral to the structure of the Torah, the universe, and so necessary for the geula, final redemption.

Within”The Alter” (HMzBCh) the (Mem-Bet) is accompanied by the letters Hey ,Zayin, and Chet whose collective numerical value is 20, “esrim” in Hebrew, of numerical value 620. Individually, the 3 letters sequentially have the values,  5-7-8, as in the year given to us by Rav Ashlag and the tzaddikim, 5778 (2018 ce) for the geula, advent of the Tree-of-life reality.

If you examine the number 620, you’ll see that it is the product of 31 and 20, or 31 x 20 = 620.  As discussed early on in this series 31 is the numerical value of El (G-d) and also L0 (don’t), as in the Commandments not to do things, and while 20 is the numerical value of the letter Yud (YVD) and the word for 20 has the value 620 itself, the 10 Commandments are all in chapter 20 of Exodus, a very important point as you’ll soon see.

Nevertheless, back to the word Mizbeach (MZBCh), which without the prefix “the” has the numerical value 57, meaning the remaining letters would then be Z-CH or 78, thus encoded within the Hebrew word for the Alter, where all the sacrifices are performed, is the simple message “42 and 5778.”

Soon we’ll begin a new series on the construction of the Future Holy Temple as detailed by R’ Chaim Luzzatto of blessed memory. For the moment, we’d like to point out that the Alter in the Future Holy Temple measures 32 x 32 cubits and is in the exact center (heart, lev of numerical value 32) of a series of concentric (nested) symmetrical courtyards, the most inner of which measures 100 x 100 cubits.  We bring this up only for the reference to the 100 times “the alter” is mentioned in the Torah.

To Be or Not To Be

The Hebrew word Eem (EM) of numerical value 41, as in the 41 letters of the spelled out name of G-d, Ehyeh (EHYH) , can translate to mother, Matriarch, matrix, or “if” or “whether,” as it’s used repeatedly in the laws (precepts) of G-d given in the 4 chapters subsequent to the 10 Commandments, which together comprise the special 5 chapters of 22,000 letters.

What makes it so germane to our discussion of the 10 Commandments is that the word EM is found 62 times in Genesis, just like the Name Elohim, which begins and ends with EM.

And, not only is the word EM found 77 times through the 10 Commandments, as in 5778; and 86 (the value of Elohim) times through chapter 21 (the value of Ehyeh); but it’s found another 21 times throughout the 5 portions for a total 107 times through chapter 34, the chapter in which the 2nd set of tablets was received. And 107 is indicative of the sum of all the positive integers through 107, whose collective energy and sum equates to 5778.

Now, the final point to be made today out of all this is that the year 6000, is when most people expect the arrival of Moshiach. But the tzaddikim of blessed memory have arrived at 5778 as the approximate date, and we’ve shown a preponderance of evidence physical, spiritual, comic, and primordial that the prescribed year does indeed appear to be 5778 (2018 ce). So why the discrepancy?

The differential of 6000 – 5778 = 222 years represents the 2 divergent paths forged in the 22,000 letters by the doubts of the Israelites.

Thus when we divide 222 by 358 (Mashiach) and we get 222/358 = .620, keter, and are sent back to the 10 Commandments.

As we get closer to 5778 (2018 ce) it’s important to realize that when we question it should not be of our faith, but only of our understanding.  The reason to question, should be to dig deeper, not to create separation, as our ancestors did the last time they stood at keter.

If you follow the path of the 222 you’ll see that 222 x 26 (YHVH) = 5772, the year 2012 CE, and if you believe in the Mayan calendar prophecies of 12/21/12, you’ll find yourself deep in the trail of doubts, for when those 6 final years before 5778 mimic the Israelites failure to wait 6 hours for Moses’ return with G-d’s Tablets, and the Tree-of-life eternal reality.

We stood there before; we know the routine. This time, let’s get it right.

Of course, just to make sure we had everything we need to get it right this time, the Torah provided us with a road map, and shoved it under our noses every year for the past 3330 years.

And no, it’s not the 10 plagues; It’s the 10 Commandments. They are being played out as right now.

It began in 2001, corresponding to Exodus 20:01 that initiates the Torah’s 70th Chapter, the Keter sequence of the 10 Commandments.  It began with a jolt, a new reality realized on 9/11.

On June 8th, 2002 the prophesied 1370 reign of Ishmael (Islam, 10 years for each of the 137 years of his life) over the Israelites ended. This coincided with the beginning of the 620 letters of the 10 Commandments in Exodus 20:02 “I am God your Lord, who brought you out of Egypt, from the place of slavery.” Like Pharaoh before them, they were not giving up without a fight, which brought us the attack in Mombasa on Nov 28th, 2002.

Exodus 20:03 “Do not have any gods before me”  An earthquake on Dec 26th, 2003 killed 40,000+ people in BaM, Iran, one of the many events Mem-Bet events over this 18 year period.

Exodus 20:04 “Do not represent [such gods] by any carved statue or picture of anything  in the heaven above, on the earth below, or in the water below the land.” Exactly, one year after the earthquake in BaM, on Dec 26th, 2004 230,000 people died from the tsunami (mabul) resulting from the 9.3 Earthquake off the coast of Meulaboh, Indonesia.

In 2008 we were stuck financially, leading to the world markets losing 42% of their value and wide scale loss of jobs (livelihood), while in Exodus 20:08 we were told, “Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.”  And lets not forget it was Erev Rosh Hashannah that September when the NY stock market closed down 5% or 778 pts.  While Exodus 20:08 was the 4th Commandment, 2008 also brought us the attack on/in Mumbai on Nov 26th, Bernie Madoff, and of course, our 44th President, President Barack Obama.

In continuation, Exodus 20:09 and 20:10 insisted no one do anything that constitutes work on the Sabbath, which brings us to today, 2011.

As for this year 2011, Exodus 20:11 tells us that in the six(6) days, God made the heaven, the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on Saturday. God blessed the Sabbath and made it holy. So this year, what we’ll see is events from space, the earth, the sea and all that is in them. It’s no wonder the birds fell from the sky and the fish died on 1/1/2011.

Each one of these fish kill images represents millions of fish and they all occurred in different parts of the world this year, from Louisiana to Scotland to Thailand to Redondo beach California, and we could have posted similar images from several more diverse locations.  Whatever it is, it’s global.

We wrote this section back in January when we began our series on the 10 Commandments; unfortunately, the events have continued with millions and millions of fish washing up ashore last week in California and then the devastating 9.0 earthquake and ensuing tsunami that hit Japan and thus created the terrifying chain of nuclear events that are happening to the 6 reactors there.

In Exodus 20:12 it’s honor your father and mother, then murder, adultery, stealing and false witness in 20:13.

In 20:14, don’t be envious of your neighbor

Then in 20:15 “All the people saw the sounds, the flames, the blast of the ram’s horn, and the smoking mountain.”

Hold on to your hats, folks.

In Exodus 20:16 “If God speaks with us anymore, we will die.”

Then in Exodus 20:17 Moses says, “God only came to you to raise you up.”

And in Exodus 20:18. It ended. “The people kept their distance while Moses entered the mist where the divine was revealed.

This is the road map for the next 7 years. The ministers of the 70 nations are falling rapidly, especially in the Mid-East, as prophesied in the Zohar, including Mubarak of Egypt, who fittingly was forced from his throne on the death anniversary of Moshe Rabbeinu (Moses).

Chapter 20 of Exodus is the 70th chapter of the Torah.  The pinnacle of the Chapter ends at Exodus 20:18: “The people kept their distance while Moses entered the mist where the divine was revealed.” This time it coincides with the 70th anniversary  of Israel becoming a nation in 5778 (2018 ce).

It’s obvious in all this that there was always two choices, two paths.
It’s all about G-d giving us 10 simple rules (commandments) in order to reach the Tree-of-life, and we couldn’t follow them.

Purim is almost upon us, when we take off our masks–by concealing our identity and getting inebriated we’re actually giving ourselves permission to reveal who we truly are–and reveal the truth.

It’s time to take off the masks from the Bible, and see the simple Torah truth. Either we follow G-d’s 10 simple rules, spiritually and physically, or we follow the prescribed consequences.  2 paths, 2 futures, 1 time table.

G-d willing, B’H, we will choose correctly.

The previous installments of The Ten Commandments are here.

## The “Book of the Wars of the Lord.”

A lot happened in Parsha Chukath, and it all has to do with the so-called end of days, the next 9 years.

Right after G-d tells Aaron and Moses about using the Red Heifer for cleansing, Miriam dies in Parsha Chukath in the beginning of chapter 20, the 137th chapter in the Torah. We know that the 137th chapter is significant because 137 is the value of Kabbalah “to receive,” and since 137 is 1/73, the value of Chochma (wisdom), it means “to receive wisdom.”

And with Miriam’s passing, so vanishes the well that sustained the Israelites in the desert, which results in Numbers (Bamidbar) 20:08 G-d revealing to Moses and Aaron how to get water from the cliff (rock). He gave Moses a staff (rod) and told them to speak to the rock. Instead, Moses struck the rock twice and water gushed forward. But because he didn’t speak to the rock as instructed, neither Moses nor Aaron was allowed to enter Israel, which prevented the Tree-of-Life from taking root there. In verse 20:09, Moses picks up the staff and begins the process that ends with G-d saying in verse 20:12, “You did not have enough faith in me.”

The Israelites were in the 40th and final year of their journey from exile to the Promised Land, in Kadesh at the time, the 33rd place of the 42 journeys that took them from exile to freedom. Kadesh, whose numerical value is 404, has a square root of 20.09… and the total numerical value of all those 33 places is exactly 15,000, with 9 more journeys to make in that final year.

After the incident with the water, the Israelites request that Edom allow them to pass through using the King’s highway and they were denied, so the Torah dizzily takes us through the final 9 places, skirting Edom, and through the battles the Israelites fought and won. These were part of the “Book of the Wars of the Lord,” and they highlighted the defeats of the King Sichon, and his city of Chesbon in particular, and of King Og. The action was interrupted to recite the Song of the Well, and the Song of Cheshbon.

Just before the battles with Sichon, after Aaron dies and after they defeated the Canaanites, doubts overtook the Israelites in the final moments, just as it happened at Mt Sinai. The first time, G-d withdrew the tree-of-life and immortality from them, and this time He sent them venomous snakes. G-d then gave Moses the antidote, a copper snake that drew the judgment out of them when they gazed upon it. We know that both the snake and Moshiach have the same gematria and that they are opposite sides of the same coin. Thus when the evil inclination overtook them, G-d let them taste the tree-of-knowledge of good and evil, so that they could once again appreciate the tree-of-life and know the difference.

So lets see what’s really going on here. The numerical value of “speak to the rock” is 848 or 2 x 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David, which may explain help to why Moses struck the rock 2 times. Another reason has to do with Adam eating from the tree-of-knowledge twice, and the 2 times Moses had to carry down the tablets, as will be come more apparent later in this article.

For some reason square roots play a big part in understanding this portion, and thus we find that 8.48 is the square root of 72, as in the 72 Names (Triplets) utilized in splitting the Red Sea (Sea of Reeds) and derived from the 3 verses of 72 letters that describe that splitting. Since Moses staff played a part then too, and both incidents concern water, this connection to the 72 Names is probably meritorious and the Names were probably used here as well. What’s more, as this entire portion is about the final years leading up to the geula and to Moshiach, the 72 Names will probably play a part then as well.

In preparation for understanding this portion we should also note that the numerical value for the phrase used in the Torah “Water from the rock” (Ma’im Min Hselah) is 345, the same as “Moshe” (Moses).

One major hint as to what is going on in this portion is that the gematria sofit (final) value of Sichon (SYChN) is 778 as in 5778, suggesting that the battle-filled 9 final journeys of the Israelites final year might indeed refer to the 9 final years from 2009 – 2018 (5778 HC). And strengthening that line of thought is the structure of the word Cheshon (ChShBVN), where Sichon is found, in which we have the numerical value of Chet (Ch) being 8 and the other 4 letters being 358, that of the word Mashiach (Messiah). Keep in mind that according to the tzaddikim, the figurative brit (milah) of Moshiach will take place in 5778, after 8 years, in the same way that a brit milah occurs for a baby boy after 8 days.

The portion begins oddly as well, and we know that any oddities in the Torah were purposely included to draw the attention of the tzaddikim and the Torah scholars. After the usual “G-d spoke to” the Torah says “that the following is declared to be the Torah’s decree as commanded by God,” which in Hebrew is Zot Chukat H’Torah Asher Zah YHVH L’Emor Daber (TzET ChKT HTVRH EshR ZVH YHVH), or 2160 in total numerical value, and 2160 is 10 times the value of the word for awe (216), the necessary attribute for reaching the Tree-of-life. Moreover, we know that whenever anything in Torah is exactly 10 times a known numerical value, it usually means that it is inclusive of all 10 sefirot (dimensions). In this case, it is also not coincidentally 10 times the numerical value of the sefirot of Gevura, representing spiritual judgment, and of the 216 letters in the 72 Names (Triplets) of G-d.

The word, Zot, of numerical value 408, according to the Zohar is a reference to the time of Mashiach, and also refers specifically to the 408 letters missing from the 600,000 composite letters in the entire Torah (599,692). The value 408 is also .666 of 612, the value of the word Brit, Covenant, as in G-d’s Covenant with Abraham that took place in 21018 HC.

The word, Chukath, is composed of ChK and T, employing that same KCh, of numerical value 108, as the word for “take” in the phrase “Take the staff (rod),” used to channel the water. 108 is also the numerical value of the “golden calf,” the second sin—Adam’s was the first—to cause Man to lose the Tree-of-life reality. And just to be clear, 108 is also 2 x 54, the numerical value of the “staff” that Moses used to strike the rock, and since “water from the rock” is and allusion Moses (345), he struck himself (and Aaron).

Reading of The Divine Calendar know the extreme significance of the number 8 in terms of Biblical dates and the timing for the arrival of the Moshiach, but the letter Chet, of numerical value 8, when spelled out without the yud, has the spelled-out word value of 408, as in Zot. Moreover, using that particular spelling, the spelled out value of the 3 letters in the word Chukat (ChKT) is exactly 1000, an allusion to the crowning and highest sefira (dimension) of keter, and also to the completion of the Tree-of-Life in that all 1000 = 103 meaning all 10 dimensions are completed within the perfectly balanced 3 column structure of the universe.

Nevertheless, the first 4 words of this odd phrase, “that the following is declared to be the Torah’s decree,” add up to 2019, when the kolel for the letters is subtracted, and 2019 is the first year that the tree-of-life reality is supposed to be in effect. This interpretation is strengthened by the presence of the word Zot that begin the phrase, and whose square root is 20.19

Now, the next four words of the odd phrase can be split into 2 pairs, TzET ChKT and HTVRH Esh. The second pair can be read as Rosh H’Torah (Head of the Torah), and the numerical value of the first pair, TzET ChKT, is 916, that of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, the author of the Zohar, which together makes a powerful statement whose timing was concealed within the gematria and purpose was signaled by the cryptic word Zot.

Now, as for the “Book of the Wars of the Lord” which is Hebrew is B’Sefer Milchamot Hashem (BSPR MLChMT YHVH), while the first 7 letters total 420 in value, the first of the 3 words, B’sefer, has an ordinal value of 54, same as the value of the rod.

And as we’ve discussed in previous articles 54 is not only the timing frequency (54 beats/minute) that the human brain functions at, but it is the measure of the double cycle of the 27 Hebrew letters and moreover it solves for the equation 107 x 54 = 5778, where the sum of the positive integers through 107 also equals 5778.

The numerical value of the “Book of the Wars of the Lord” (BSPR MLChMT YHVH) is split into the first 2 words of numerical value 860 (or 10 x 86, the value of the Name of G-d that reflects spiritual judgment, Elohim) and the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) of numerical value 26. Together they add up to 886, plus a kolel of 2, which gives us a value of 888, recalling what we said about the number 8.

And if you doubt the connection, please note that the sun of the values of the spelled out letters plus their kolel in the word Moshiach (MshYCh) is 888.

Observing the letters in the “Book of the Wars of the Lord” (BSPR MLChMT YHVH) we see that there are 13 letters centered on the central letter Chet, once again. And adding the 1st and last letters, and working inward to the central (Chet), then summing their square roots give us 66.652, as in the 66.6 jubilees years (Biblical mandated 50 year intervals) from the reception of the Torah in 2448 HC, when we last stood at the foot of the Tree-of-life to 5778: (BH, SV, PH, RY, MT, LM, and Ch)

The 52 in 66.652 can signify the level of the Tetragrammaton known as Ban, and referred to as Malchut, the bottommost dimension of manifestation. 52 is also the numerical; value of the phrase’s initials (BMY), which can also stand for the 42-Letters of the Name of G-d.

If we peel off the letters of each word, starting with their initial we get BMY, etc we’re left with 4 triplets and the letter Tav (T), which as the last letter in the alef-bet indicates finality and the level of malchut. Then if we add up the square roots of each of these 4 triplets we get 42.3 plus .1 for the kolel and we get 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David: (BMY, SLH, PChV, RMH and T)

How do we know to permute the letters in this fashion? Because we are told by Rav Ashlag that in the Zohar Shlach Lecha #289, the Mashiach, as did Daniel, permuted the famous letters in Daniel 5:25 MENE MENE TEKEL UFARSHIN in just the same way. “G-d has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to the end…”

Whether we divide the letters in pairs of triplets, the two letters left out Chet and Tav, interestingly enough for the letter Chet (ChT) once again, or numerical value 408.

As for the initials of B’Sefer Milchamot Hashem (BSPR MLChMT YHVH), they connect to phrase recited during the highpoint of the Amidah prayer connection Baruch Cavod YHVH Mimkomo (G-d is in his Everlasting Place), whose initials are BCYM, and also to the 42-Letter Sword of Moses hidden within the Song of the Sea, whose initials also begin Mi Camoka Belim YHVH (MCBY), recited just before the Amidah. That these initials sum up to 72 is significant as the two tools necessary to fight these wars will be the 42-Letter name and the 72 Names (Triplets). In case you are wondering the Caf is the complimentary letter to the Tav (T) in Milchamot.

The wars described in the final journeys of the Israelites will be repeated in one form or another within the next 9 years, and the torah is warning us as to what will happen. As hinted at in the name of King Og (AVG), the last 9 years of the final 70—Ayin(A) has a numerical value of 70—will be split into two parts, the 3 years—Gimmel(G) has a value of 3—and the final 6 years—Vav(V) has the value of 6. This means that for 2009 there will be a break at 2012, probably when Amalek (doubts) take hold in earnest after the Mayan illusion, and the wars will continue for 6 more through 2018. Recall that it was in verse 20:12 that G-d says, “You did not have enough faith in me.”

Regarding those doubts, the last time we stood to receive the Tree-of-life, the Israelites weren’t able to wait the final 6 hours for Moses to return from upon Mt Sinai with the two tablets of the Torah of Moshiach and receive immortality. And in Chukath, we see again that they couldn’t wait until the final end of the 40 years in the desert before complaining, and yearning to return to Egypt.

Doubts were always their downfall and have always been ours. While the Israelites defeated the Canaanites and the Amorites, they never defeated the Amalekites, who kabbalistically represent their doubts because the Hebrew word for doubt (Sofek) and Amalek have the same numerical value. And this is the greatest war of all, for it will determine who receives the geula (final redemption) and who reaches the tree-of-life, and conversely, who stays behind again in the world of the tree-of-knowledge of good and evil.

According to the Baal Shem Tov, the spiritual significance of the red heifer that begins this portion is to help us cleanse ourselves of our ego, which is at the root of our doubts, and which we know will be all the more important for us to do as the days of the final redemption approach over the next 9 years.

## When They (We) Stood at Keter.

What is going on?

Our last blog was about the split that happened at “The 10 Utterances,” which we showed beyond doubt to connect to Creation, the Torah’s first verse, the Torah in its entirety, to the tree-of-life, to the 42-Letter name, and to Moshiach.

When we last left the Israelites at the 10 Utterances (Commandments), they were at keter, the highest point of ascension possible.

They were immersed in the 620 letters and the 62 Yuds (Y) of the 10 Utterances found at the 20th chapter in Exodus with the number 20, esrim, having a gematria value of 620, that same as Keter, the “crown”. And while the letter yud (Y) has the value 10, and can substitute for the 10 in the 10 utterances, when it’s spelled out, (Y-V-D), it has the value 20, esrim and thus Keter again.

The ascending Israelites were past the aspect of G-d called Elohim, which was reflected in the 62 Elohims present in the Torah through the 10 generations of Adam. They were in the letter yud (Y) of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) and ready to enter the tip of the Yud, which we know from the Arizal is Keter, the dimension where the self is reduced to virtually nothing and where we rejoin G-d in the whole, the oneness.

In terms of the Torah organization, the Israelites and the 10 Utterances were at chapter 20 in parsha Yitro of Shmot, paragraphs 54-62. Yitro (YTRV), Mose’s father-in-law, has the value 616, the same as H’Torah (the Torah), which when added to the kolel of its 4 letters gives us 616 +4 = 620, Keter once again, the crowning, highest sefira (dimension).

And 54, once again and as explained in the previous blog(s) connects us to the year 5778, when the tzaddikim have advised us Mashiach and the geula (final redemption) will come again, 66.6 jubilee years after the giving of the 10 Utterances in 2448 HC.

What do we mean by come again?

And what happened, seeing as they were already at such a high place 66.6 jubilee (3330) years ago?

The second question almost answers the first, but we’ll give the full answer after we straighten out the seemingly incongruent time time-line of the 5 portions, Yitro, Mishpatim, Terumah, Tetzaveh, and Ki Thisa; from Exodus 20 – 34, encompassing paragraphs 54 to 130, from the 10 Utterances to the second set of Tablets.

Just to put that into perspective, that span of the 5 portions with 22 letters in their combined names is exactly 22,000 letters, 5788 words, 441 verses, 77 paragraphs and 15 chapters long. And while, yes, the fact that 5788 = 5778 + 10; and that 441 is the gematria of Emet, truth, a synonym for Torah, the tree-of-life and the 42-letter Name; and that 22,000 letters is exactly the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet, 22 x 10,000; and that 77 is the numerical value of mazal wedged into 5778, are all compelling reasons to assume this section of 15 chapters is very special, but there are other reasons.

For instance, the total gematria of those 22,000 letters is 1733324 or 299.99 x 5778, off by a minuscule (0.0044%) percent from exactly 300 x 5778, and moreover, when we divide 1733324 by 26, the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) we get 1733324/26 = 66666.308.

Now, all that is certainly astonishing and awe-inspiring in its precision and in the detailed planning that went into specifically organizing these specific 5 portions so that their combined encoding and energy would dictate to us the profound connection between them; the 42-letter Name (as indicated by it small gematria value of 173); the year 5778 prophesied by the tzaddikim for the arrival of the Moshiach (Messiah) and the geula (final redemption); the number 666 so prominent in the calculation of 5778, etc; the 22 letters of the alef-bet; and 26, the value of the Tetragramamton (YHVH).

Nevertheless, the Torah goes even further to strengthen this connection for us. In analyzing the 22,000 letters, we see that many of them reoccur very specific and significant number of times. Now, it would be natural for one of them to, even for two of them, but of the 22 letters, at least 7 of them do: the letter bet (B) reoccurs 1024, the number of different word values in the entire Torah, and 1024= 322, the tree-of-life; both the letter gimmel (G) and the letter tet (Tt) each reoccur 137 times, as in the numerical value of Kabbalah, meaning “to receive” and as in the age of the universe, 13.7 billion years; and the letter zayin (Tz) reoccurs 204 times, as in the value of tzaddik; and the letter chet (Ch) reoccurs 616 times as in H’Torah, as in the number of times Moses exact name (MShH) is mentioned in the Torah, and as in the value of Yitro(YTRV), the first of the 5 portions; and while Pe(P) reoccurs 358 times, as in the value of Mashiach, the final letter Pe sofit reoccurs 42 times; and the letter Ayin (A) reoccurs 954 times, as in digit #954 in Pi where we find then final of the three 5778‘s (please see There’s Nothing Random in the Universe for an explanation as to why this is significant for us).

It’s obvious that in these portions, where we’re receiving the 10 Utterances (10 Commandments); the 2 tablets twice; the laws of reincarnation (in Mishpatim); the instructions for building the Tabernacle; the Temple accouterments; and the vestments of the Cohenim all have a special design and special reason for us to study them beyond the obvious. But to do that we must untangle them first, especially the timing of the events, including when and to who G-d is speaking.

Another letter, the 8th to have significance for us (this time only in this context) is the letter hey( H) of numerical value 5, found 2060 times within the 22000 letters of the 5 portions. In the middle of the first of those portions, in the 5th verse of the 10 Utterances, at Exodus 20:6, G-d advises that his love will go to those deserved for thousands of generations (eternity/immortality), but the sins of the fathers will pass on for 3 or 4 generations. Here is where the choice was officially offered.

The choice given to the Israelites was the same as that given to Adam 2448 years earlier: to choose between the immortality of the tree-of-life reality, or the cycle of reincarnation and cause and effect of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Adam through Eve was persuaded by the snake to choose wrong. The Israelites were persuaded by the erev rav (mixed multitude) to choose wrong as well.

This is not surprising as the gematria value of erev rav (ARB RB) is 474, the same as Da’at, knowledge, and that of Snake (NChSh) is the same as Mashiach, so it’s easy to see how they were tricked. This is also why there are legends that say many of us will be tricked in these days as well.

By Exodus 20:15, the people showed where their hearts and minds were at: After hearing and seeing the 10 Utterances, the people trembled, kept their distance, and they said to Moses in Exodus 20:16, “You speak to us, and we will listen, but let G0d not speak with us anymore, for we will die if he does.” In their own words they chose death. G-d let it be Pharaoh’s words that brought about the death of the first born, and the people back then chose their fate with their words as well.

This is why chazal warned us to always choose our words wisely and use them sparingly. According to the Zohar, the words in Moses’ mouth were like a sword, especially when he recited the Shem Mem-Bet (42-Letter Name). They are like swords in our mouths as well, double-edged ones. It’s designed that way as part of the knowledge of Good and Evil, whereby we are our own judges. What comes out of our lips comes right back at us from another direction, as if time and space were warped (just as they are in the spiritual realm. And this is exactly why the Torah warns us to love our neighbors as ourselves.

Then after Moses implores them not to be afraid, in Exodus 20:18, when the Covenant of Abraham, which was given in 2018, 430 years earlier, was supposed to be fulfilled, the Torah repeats, “The people kept their distance while Moses entered the mist where God was.”

That was it. In Exodus 20:18, G-d fulfilled his promise with Moses that he made with Abraham in 2018. This is the last verse of paragraph 64, the numerical value of Din (DYN), judgment.

Synopsis of the next 4 Portions

From here on out G-d is speaking only to Moses, until in Exodus 24:1 G-d tells Moses go up to G-d and to bring the 70 elders, Aaron–the only names in the Torah associated with the word Moshiach–and his sons Nadav and Avihu, who we know from the Zohar and the Arizal would reincarnate into Pinchas and then into Eliyahu Hanavi (Elijah the Prophet), who we are told by chazal will usher in the arrival of H’Mashiach. Still, they were instructed to bow down and keep their distance.

Then in Exodus 24:3 “Moses told the people “All of G0d’s words and ALL of the laws.” And in Exodus 24:4 “Moses wrote down ALL of G0d’s words.”

Then after Moses, Aaron, his two sons and the 70 elders made the covenant of sacrifices they received a vision, at which point in Exodus 24:12 G-d summons Moses up to the Mountain to give him the stone tablets. After six days, G-d called to Moses from the midst of the Cloud on the seventh day. In Exodus 24:17, we learned Moses was to remain on the Mountain 40 days and 40 nights.

G-d continues giving Moses instructions for 7 chapters up to the Sabbath instruction in paragraph 123 Exodus 31:12, and then in paragraph 124 Exodus 31:18, G-d gives Moses the 2 Tablets of the Testimony, written by G-d. Meanwhile, in Exodus chapter 32, we learn of the Golden calf, and in 32:19 Moses destroys the Tablets that G-d had given him.

Then in Exodus 3:23, G-d grants Moses a vision of his presence (ET EChRY) of numerical value 620, that of Keter. This occurs just before G-d gives Moses instructions to carve out the second set of tablets–the first ones were G-d’s creation–and to climb Mt Sinai in Exodus 34:1 in paragraph 130, which happens to be the gematria value of Sinai.

In Exodus 34:6, G-d pronounces the 13 attributes and we are again told that his love will go to those deserved for thousands of generations (eternity/immortality), but the sins of the fathers will pass on for 3 or 4 generations. And in Exodus 34:10 G-d advises that He will make a Covenant before all Moses’ people. G-d once again dictated the laws to Moses and asked him to write them down, and once again he stayed with G-d for 40 days and 40 nights, then G-d wrote the words of the Covenant, the 10 Utterances on the two tablets. And Moses brought them to his people, his skin now luminous, his being from another dimension.

Why Two?

Two (2) is primordially indicative of a split, a dichotomy, divergent and juxtaposed choices.

So why 2 Tablets; why 2 sets of Tablets, why going back up 2 times, each time for 40 days and 40 nights; and why were there 2 visions; and why does G-d tell us 2 times that He will be with those deserved for thousands of generations and that those not, will have self-inflicted punishment (rectification) for 3 or 4 generations. And if Moses wrote down ALL of G-d’s words in Exodus 24:4, why did he have to write them down again later. And finally, the Golden calf incident which ruined everything, happened in paragraph 124, which is 2 x 62, the chapter we were at in the 10 utterances, when we were at Keter, 62 verses earlier.

It is because we’re witnessing 2 parallel universes that existed simultaneously until the 22,000 letter section ends at chapter 34, the 84th in the Torah.

As we know, 84, is the number that represents redemption (PD) and the fusion of the upper and lover 42-Letter Names.

It’s at chapter 34 that we official fall down from Keter and fall back down to earth/malchut, and being anew the process of rectifying the shattered vessels of the the second world, the world of tikun (karma), a process that necessarily has to take 5778 years, as hinted at by the 5788 verses, which included the yud (Keter) of simple value 10 for the 10 Utterances.

This yud is the separate universe given to Moses and the few that kept their doubts in check. This addition 10 is equivalent to .1730% of 5778, as in the 173 keys given to Moses and the small gematria of the 42-Letter Name.

Moses had just received the vision of G-d’s Presence and was now in keter, and couldn’t be with the people any longer, still it would take another 40 years before they realized he was no longer there. He had ascended, as had everyone else who had been ready.

How many? We don’t know, but it may be hinted at in the number of component letters in the Torah, which is 600,000-408 since we known from chazal that there are supposed to be 600,000 letters in the Torah and that there were 600,000 Israelites at Mt Sinai and furthermore that each of the Isralites souls have a letter in the Torah. That would seem to leave 408 Souls that have ascended to keter, or at least missing.

The first set of Tablets represented the world of Tohu v’Bohu, the first set of 10 Sefirot (dimensions) whose vessels overloaded and shattered because of a lack of interconnectedness. When the Israelites led by the erev rav feared, rather than embraced G-d’s words, their vessels could no longer hold the light and G-d had to destroy the them, which is why Moses had to shatter the 10 Utterances on the 2 Tablets.

And if we ask how could Moses destroy G-d’s work, the answers lies in that the spiritual realms to which the Israelites and the Tablets were anchored had already been shattered; otherwise, Moses could have thrown them from the top of the mountain and they never would have broken.

But, G-d did make Moses responsible, because He referred to them as the Tablets that you (Moses) broke. Moses chose to bring the erev rav with him and the consequences would last 66.6 jubilee years, many many generations. The lesson here is that regardless of our closeness to G-d, regardless of G-d’s overall plans for us, and regardless of His immediate intentions for us, we are responsible for our actions.

Adam, Noach, Moses and the End of Days

What did happen, though, was G-d had to start all over again with these people. In paragraph 125, Exodus 32:9-10 “G-d then said to Moses, “I have observed the people and they are an unbending (stiff-neck) group. Now do not try to stop me when I unleash my wrath against them to destroy them. I will then make you into a great nation.”

Here is a deep secret: The words “great nation” L’Goy Gadol (LGVY GDVL) permute into Yud Gilgul (YVD GLGVL), 10 reincanations, one for each of the 10 utterances. Is the Torah hinting to us that Moses (H’Moshiach) will reincarnate 10 times?

Moses could have chosen to be like Noach, the 10th generation from Adam and preside over a new beginning, but Moses was the 26th generation of Adam, connected to the YHVH of value 26.

This connection between Noach and Moses is more than casual. G-d’s wrath was revealed to Moses in paragraph 125 of Exodus and to Noach in paragraph 25, when in Genesis 6:13 “God said to Noach, ‘The end of all flesh has come before me. The world is filled with crime. I will therefore destroy them with the earth’.” It was only a few verses earlier when in Genesis 6:3 “God said, ‘My spirit will not continue to judge man forever, since he is nothing but flesh. His days shall be 120 years’.” The word flesh (BShR) is found 58 times in the Torah, the same as the the numerical value of Noach.

And who lived for 120 years? Moses did, and the Torah mentions no one else who lived for 120 years to fulfill G-d’s statement. And lets not forget that Noach had to endure for 40 days and 40 night immersed in water to cleanse mankind and the earth and Moses also 40 days and 40 nights immersed in the clouds on Sinai to do the same.

The Torah is drawing these parallels for a reason. G-d gave us the 120 years of Moses (H’Mashiach) in flesh. Bnei Noach (BNY NCh) also has the value of 120, so it’s not surprising that G-d’s announcement about his wrath was found in Genesis 6:13, which hints at the 613 precepts that Moses would bring, and if you add the 7 Noahide precepts, we get 613 + 7 = 620, keter.

This is all evidence as well that the yud Gilgul (10 reincarnations or 10 revolvings) also refer to the 10 generations from Adam to Noach.

But the most significant parallel to draw from this Moshe(MShH)-Noach (NCh) connection is the correction of the snake (NChSh) and Adam/Man (EDM), since the letters in their 2 names permute to NChSh, which is Nachash, snake and M’H, mah, which has the same numerical value as Adam (45) and according to the Zohar also as is the aspect of the G-d’s name (YVD HE VEV HE) that is called M’H of value 45 and that represents Man and the 6 sefirot of Zeir Anpin.

And because nachash has the numerical value of 358, this correction brings us Mashiach (358). Moreover, 45 is also the gematria of Geula (GEVLH), the final redemption.

It also warns us what we have to overcome for Moses (Mashiach) and to come again and bring the geula. The snake always finds a way, different every time, to work his way in and make us lose our focus. Adam blew the opportunity to stay in the tree-of-life reality, and 1658 years later and 10 generations later, the Flood waters covered the earth, and we began anew. In 2448, we blew the opportunity once again, and 66.6 jubilee years and 10 incarnations were given to us to reincarnate in flesh to find the means to summon the tree-of-life back into our lives.

The phrase “End of days” found in the Zohar Trumah 143, Ketz H’Yamim (KZ HYMYM) has the sofit gematria value of 1665, and if we take away the kolel of the 7 letters we get 1658, the year of the Flood, and if we add 1 instead for the kolel we get 1666, the year the generation of Shabtai Tzvi thought Moshiach was coming. But we also get 666 (the days) and 1000 (End).

The end is the beginning since alef (ELP), the first letter is also 1000, a concept that keeps coming up in spirituality and in many of our blogs. Just like the geula and Adam having the same gematria.

Please note then that Moses passed on after 120 years in 2488, just before the Israelites entered the Promised Land and Noach’s Flood occurred in 1658, which is 1658/2488 = .666 of the way from Adam to Moshe’s death in the flesh. Also 2488/5778 = 430 as in the 430 years from the Covenant with Abraham in 2018 to 2448 and the reception of the 10 Utterances, which again comes full circle as 2018 CE = 5778 HC. And just to top it off, a circle has 360 degrees and 1658 + 360 = 2018.

The People

The people, “ET H’AM“, that G-d refers to has the numerical value of 516, which know know from chazal is the number of times Moses needed to pray if he wanted to enter the Land of Israel and bring the final redemption, but G-d had instructed Moses to stop at 515. And as we’ve previous written, according to the Arizal these coincide with the 516 hours between Rosh Hashanna and Hoshanna Rabba.

And after Moses pleaded for them,the 4 Hebrew words, 4 verses later, “God refrained from doing that evil,” have a gematria of 516 as well when the kolel of 4 is subtracted, the connection being that G0d put off that decree to destroy the people in the same way that he put off the final redemption h’geula for 66.6 jubilees years.

It’s simple: The numerical value of h’geula is 50 and 66.6 x 50 = 3330 and 2448 + 3330 = 5778.

But as all judgments, they can be meted out with harshness or mercy. In this case, it was mercy. With the generation of Noach, it was harshness for as chazal explain, Noach didn’t pray for the people as Moses had. The lesson here is that mercy comes when we pray for others.

Back in paragraph 123, Exodus 31:12-17 when G-d is telling Moses to tell the Israelites to keep the Sabbath, making it a day of rest and a sign to you for all generations, “as an eternal covenant,” He referred back to Creation again, and repeated that He made Heaven and Earth in 6 days and on the seventh (Shabbat) “He ceased work and withdrew to the spiritual.”

There are 6666 letter bets(B) in the Torah up to that point, reminiscent of the value 66666.308 x 26, which is the total gematria of the 22,000 letters in this full section.

One way to interpret this is that at the 6’s He stopped working on us, and withdrew to spiritual, for in the very next paragraph, the Israelites and the erev rav decide they couldn’t wait another 6 hours, and in 6 verses they made the golden calf instead. It appears they stopped working on themselves first.

The word spiritual (vyinafash, VYNGSh) has the same gematria, 446, as mot, death. This double meaning is similar to Moshiach and Snake, in that when we’re not working (on ourselves) it can be like and can lead to death, or if we chose otherwise, it can lead to the spiritual, and our physical down-time can be spiritual time (not a dead rest time) to work on ourselves spiritually and thus recharge our physical world for the coming 7 day cycle.

The dichotomy on a grander scale is indicating that the 66.6 jubilee (Biblical 50 year period) will lead either to death (a permanent end) or to the spiritual realm (the tree-of-life reality) in the 7th period, and this time frame is hinted at by the 5761 letter nun(N) of numerical value 50 through this same location in the Torah, as in the year 2001 CE, when it appears the period of Oy and Ashrei began (at least physically) with 9/11. Spiritually it began in 5760 as Rav Abraham Azulai suggested it would, 18 (6+6+6) years before 5778.

If we consider chazal’s analysis that after 6 millenniums, the geula will happen in the 7th, then we have to look at the millenniums as elefs (thousands) each of the numerical word value of 111 and thus 666 or 66.6 equals 6 millenniums. And just to hammer home the point, up until chapter 32 and the 6 verses of the golden calf there are 5777 letter nun’s of value 50, and thus symbolically and spiritually related to the 50-year jubilee period.

The the thousands are found in YHVH. Jubilee is Binah. This the Zohar tells us. And the aspect of the YHVH that corresponds to Binah is Sag (YVD HY VEV HY). The 3 Yuds (YYY) at this level each have a value of 10 and when multiplied together form 10 x 10 x10 =1000.

And since there are 600,000 component letters in the Torah, the 5 component and composite yuds in YHVH similarly form 10 x10 x10 x10 x 10 = 100,000. To understand this you must see the two letters Hey (H) as their component dalet-yud’s 2 x (DY) and combine them with the letters vav (VV) to form yud (YVD) and yud (YVD). You then add the yud (Y) of YHVH and the the two component yuds (Y) from the Heys, and you get the 5 total yuds in the YHVH at the level of Malchut (Ban) which is the level the the 600,000 souls fell back to when it was decreed they needed to restart the correction process.

Okay, so maybe it was 408 souls that ascended to Keter, or 4 x 102, the numerical value of emunah (faith). And maybe that makes sense since 408 = 407 + 1 (Moses) and the square root of 407 = 20.17424, considering that 424 is the value of Mashiach Ben David and 2017 CE is the year 5777. But why not 620 souls?

Why not? We do know though that 620-408 = 202 as in verse 20:2 where the 10 utterance and the 22,000 set of letters began. Perhaps this had something to do with it.

And since everything to do with the special set of 22,000 letters, or embedded gift within the Bible, has to do with 10 and the power of 10, perhaps it has something to do with 408 x 6 = 2448 and also that the square root of ((600,000 – 408) x 10 ) =2448 .

The mystery of (EM).

The word Mizbayach (MtzBCh), the Tabernacle, whose construction is described in painstaking detail in the 3rd of the 5 portions has the numerical value of 62, as in all the connections to the 10 Utterances, including the 620 letters of the 10 utterances that were engraved on the 2 Tablets housed in the Tabernacle. And this all fits since there are 100 (an appellation of Keter) occurrences of the word H’Mizbeach in the Torah, 22 of them through chapter 34 and the carving of the second set of tablets, which terminates the set of 22,000 letters.

And what’s interesting about the Hebrew word for Tabernacle (HMzBCh) are the contained initials of the 42-Letter name (Mem-Bet) and the value of the remaining letters, 20, as in esrim of numerical value 620.

The word Eem (EM) of numerical value 41, as in the 41 letters of the spelled out name of G-d, Ehyeh (EHYH) , can translate to mother, Matriarch, matrix, or “if” or “whether,” as it’s used repeatedly in the laws (precepts) of G-d given in the 4 chapters subsequent to the 10 Utterances.

What makes it so interesting is that the word EM is found 62 times in Genesis, just like the Name Elohim, which begins and ends with EM.

And, not only is it found 77 times through the 10 Utterances, as in 5778; and 86 (the value of Elohim) times through chapter 21 (the value of Ehyeh); but it’s found 107 times through chapter 34, the chapter in which the second set of tablets was receive. And, of course, the sum of all the positive integers through 107 = 5778.

Now, the final point to be made today out of all this is that the year 6000, is when, more or less, most people expect the arrival of Moshiach. But the tzaddikim of blessed memory have arrived at 5778 and we’ve shown a preponderance of evidence physical, spiritual, comic, and primordial that the year appears to be 5778, so what gives?

What gives is that 6000 – 5778 = 222 representing the 2 divergent paths forged in the 22,000 letters by the doubts of the Israelites.

Thus we divide 222 by 358 (Mashiach) we get 222/358 = .620, keter. We shouldn’t question our faith, but only question in order to understand Question to go deeper, not to create separation as our ancestors did the last time they stood at keter.

If you follow the path of the 222 you’ll see that 222 x 26 (YHVH) = 5772, the year 2012 CE, and if you believe in the Mayan calendar prophecies of 12/21/12, you’ll find yourself deep in the trail of doubts when that year, 6 years before 5778, mimics the Israelites failure to wait 6 hours for Moses’ return with G-d’s Tablets, and the tree-of-life eternal reality.

We stood there before; we know the routine. This time, let’s get it right.

## Science and Spirituality Collide; The New Speed of the Sun: 600,000 MPH

Even before the dawn of civilization, man has looked to the stars for signs. Much more recently, we’ve been equipped with powerful telescopes and computers with which to gaze at them. And our astrophysicists are pretty good. After only a few hundred years of being able to make advanced calculations they’ve been able to do astounding feats, and with a precision and accuracy unheard of, except in ancient times.

Huh? Except in ancient times?

Yes, while we have ancient documents such as the Torah and ancient objects such as Joseph’s Pyramid (separate blog post) structured precisely and accurately to within several decimal places every which way they are examined, our modern scientists are extraordinarily accurate until they’re not. And then, they just recalculate. Imagine, up until recently we knew that the sun was hurtling through space around the Milky Way Galaxy at 500,000 mph. And now, all of a sudden, they tell us it’s 600,000 mph, a small shift in gears of 100,000 mph. Oops!

The size of the miscalculation is irrelevant; what’s important is that they now know what the ancient kabbalists knew. Do you think it’s a coincidence that the sun is traveling at 600,000 mph, and that there are 600,000 letters of black fire) in the Torah, or that there were 600,000 Israelites at Mt Sinai, or that, as explained by the Arizal hundreds of years ago, the soul root of Adam was divided into 600,000 parts, and that at the core of it is Uranium 238?

Huh, Uranium 238?

Yes, following the Arizal instructions, we trace the Jewish soul root back from the 600,000 at Mt Sinai to the 70 of Jacob’s family who entered Egypt to Jacobs 12 sons to the 3 Patriarchs (Jacob, Isaac, and Abraham) then to Adam, and we get:

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

The Exact Nuclear weight of Uranium 238

It’s also 42 when we invert the equation:

1/(600,000/70/12/3/1) = 42

There are no coincidences. That’s the first spiritual precept we must understand. Scientists will keep changing their numbers until the physical laws of the universe eventually match the spiritual ones. And as time speeds up for all of us, the convergence will grow more apparent.

And more crucial too, because the more accurate the scientific data, the stronger the tree of knowledge of good and evil, and thus the more destructive science can be. Or the more helpful, if the scientists wake up to the spiritual reality of the Tree-of-life.

The key here, is why the scientific accuracy in the first place. Assume for a moment you actually wholeheartedly believe in G-d, an omniscient intelligence, then was his place for us to be able to get to the moon and mars, to be able to make nuclear weapons and alter our DNA? Or was it to inspire an awe and wonder at the grandeur and possibilities of infinity (the infinite), of the limitless and boundless and fully integrated wonders of the universe, no matter where and on what scale we look. It’s only by embracing this awe that we can appreciate what we’ve been given, and the next spiritual precept to understand is that only through appreciating what we have, can we hold on to it.

As we look to the stars in this article, and use only the numbers our scientists have given us, we hope you’ll share our awe of how divinely perfect and planned out the universe really is, and of the one and only way it could have worked out so perfectly.

OK, so what does it really matter how fast the Sun is flying through space?

Because we are too. We are bound to the Earth, which is bound to the Sun, which is soaring at 600,000 mph, and at that speed the boundaries between science and spirituality are melting. As we hurtle toward the year 5778 HC, the year passed down from tzaddik to tzaddik as the year of the final redemption, only 9 years away now, the year that corresponds to 2018 CE and thus within the divine calendar to 2018 HC when G-d made his Covenant with Abraham, the veils cloaking the spiritual world from the physical are burning away at a frightening pace.

Scientifically, what it means by our speed to have been found to have increased from 500,000 to 600,000 mph is that the dark matter at the center of the Milky Way is far more massive than our physicists had imagined. They said oops, but a student of kabbalah would ask why? Why did that extra dark mass suddenly appeared 10 years prior to prophesied date of the geula (the final redemption), and also contemporaneously with the fall of the world economic systems, which lost 42% of its markets values last year, and which also happened immediately after the Large Hedron Collider was fire up back in September.

Now, scientifically, one thing cannot be connected with the other.

Spiritually, everything is connected. The outcome of an event is already present in its beginning. And energy anywhere instantaneously effects everything and everyone. These are the spiritual tenets we need to grasp, as the markets, economies,and global hostilities continue to be drawn to that newly discovered dark mass.

The kabbalists would suggest that the scientists try an experiment to change the phase of a proton on one side of the universe and check what happens to its mate on the other side of the universe. But wait, they did that, and miraculously, and instantaneously, whatever they did to one, happened to the other. That’s because the spiritual tenets exist on a higher level than the physical ones, and the spiritual precedes the physical. It’s all based on dimensionality and the relationship between the 10 dimensions (sefirot) that make up the tree-of-life reality.

By the way, there are few physicists today that would argue with the 10-dimensional structure of the universe. But instead of the integral, highly organized, and divinely planned one that the Kabbalists have been writing about for thousands of years, the 10-dimensional structure of the universe posited recently by our modern scientists is a mathematic ball of thread.

Be that as it may. the 600,000 figure is obviously not a random number, and we know from chazal (the righteous sages of blessed memory) that it relates to the letter vav, of numerical value 6, the 6 days of Creation, and the bundled 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin, which in the tree-of-life schematic represents Heaven (H’Sham’im), the linkage between our physical world and the 3 spiritual upper worlds.

Given that we’re talking about inspiring awe, why does the Torah have (600,000-408) component letters, and not exactly 600,000?

There are several reasons, one being that 408 is the numerical value of the Hebrew letter chet (8), but we go into that discussion in depth in The Divine Calendar so we won’t do so here. And another explanation is that 408 letter vavs (which are single flame strokes) of numerical value 6 gives us 408 x 6 = 2448, the year the Torah was received by the 600,000 Israelites at Sinai.

And another of the many reasons can be found in our Rosh Hashanah prayers when we pray that repentance, prayer and charity can remove an evil decree against us. There are three words that appear above these words in tiny Hebrew letters; they are צום קול and ממון. Each of these words has a connection to tshuvah, and each has a value of 136, together they sum to 408. Which is the universe and Hashem’s way of telling us that in order to complete the Torah, to complete perfection and ourselves, we must do tshuvah (repentence, prayer, charity). This is certainly not a new concept, but just as darkness is descending around us, we’ve been given a powerful flashlight to help us find our way through it: tshuvah.

But why is this heavy dark matter happening now and what does it mean for us?

The answer lies, not far off in the center of our universe, but in the center of our solar system. In the Sun. Thanks to science, we know that the temperature of the surface of the sun is 5778 degrees Kelvin. That’s hot, but that’s also the year that’s been prophesied by the tzaddikim, and illustrated over and over again, as the year of the geula, the final redemption, and the arrival of Moshaich, the Messiah.

Think about it; it’s perfect! What is the source of all out Light? What is the source of the energy that gives us live? The Sun. So what more fitting a billboard could God give us than to post the date of the redemption in our skies, right in front of our faces, every single day, since the birth of Adam 5778 years earlier?

I can tell you with certainty that the ancient kabbalists didn’t know that the temperature at the surface of the Sun was 5778 K. It hasn’t been that long since the Kelvin temperature scale was created, or even centigrade or Fahrenheit for that matter. But they had the date 5778 HC and they showed us we can easily calculate it too based on a scale of 2/3 of the 6 sefirot, or 666.666 year intervals, but the astonishing thing here is that we can look to the same place they did, the radiance of the Light for the timing of the coming of the Messiah (H’Mashiach). Or conversely, if we want to ignore the spiritual messages, the End of Days.

Do you realize that if the Sun were to be even one degree K warmer or cooler, we’d be history, fried or frozen. That’s a pretty good reason to chose 5778 as a focal point.

And if you’re scientifically oriented, don’t get hung up in the fact that the universe is 13.7 Billion years old, because time is an illusion and can be dimensionally collapsed, and also because 137 is the numerical value of Kabbalah, meaning “to receive,” which is all we’ve been doing for 13.7 billion years. But if you are scientifically oriented you must read There’s Nothing Random in the Universe, which illustrates how most of the mathematical constants and especially Pi and Phi integrally hinge on this date, 5778 HC (2018 CE), which is also phi18.

We all know things are on pretty shaky ground right now, spiritually and physically, around the planet, and a great many of us can feel something big coming, and those that can’t are being forced to confront their demons by the unfortunate series of events that just seems to get perpetually worse.

But curiously, 6 years before 5778 HC (2018 CE), on Dec 21st 2012, the Sun and Earth will align in a way not seen in 26,000 years with the Sun eclipsing the dark center of the galaxy. And while, to many this portends the End of Days, it is probably just emphasizing the linkage between heaven and earth as we draw closer in the final 6 years, because how bad can the Light eclipsing the darkness be?

However, we can all feel the encroachment of the darkness every day as we get closer, and there are no signs times will get any easier so we need to understand what’s going on much better. And it’s important to note that the 26,000 years is based on the precession of the equinoxes,in other words the revolution against the backdrop of the cosmos and the sun of the tilting of the Earth’s axis. And moreover, that it’s not really 26,000, but more accurately 25770 years give or take 10 years or so.

We don’t mean to minimize the events that will happen around the year 2012 (5772), but its become increasingly apparent, considering the amount of greed and selfishness in our world and the lack of true spiritual (compassionate/sharing/giving/self-sacrificing) consciousness, that the darkness is necessary for us to able to see the light. The events around the world may be truly devastating on the individual, community, regional and global scale, but what 2012 marks, is not the end, but a pivotal turning point. As will be illustrated later in the article, as the Sun pulls away from the central alignment point of the serpent shaped darkness at the center of the Milky Way, we’ll all have to make a final choice: follow the Light of the Sun, or stay focused on the darkness.

Both physically and spiritually, it’s only against a backdrop of darkness that we can truly see the light shine. It’s easy (though most of us don’t do it anyway) to be spiritual when times are good, but exceedingly hard when they are not, and conversely it’s exceedingly difficult to see a candle flame in bright room, but turn out the lights, and voila.

And thanks to modern science we have the advanced equations with which to reveal the spiritual numbers that the kabbalists use to perceive the hidden universe, the numbers that lead them and can lead us to the necessary awe we’ll need to get us through the darkening days.

Through the equations below, copied from Wikipedia about the energy of black bodies, more specifically about the temperature of the earth as seen from space and the temperature of the Sun at its surface, we can perceive the spiritual relationship between Mother Earth and the Sun (father, Av) and our place in it. Since our lives depend on this connection between Earth and Sun and the relationship between them, it’s pretty important that we understand it.

It’s very technical, so unless you’re a physicist, scroll to the bottom, because the equations aren’t the point, only the results that they’ve found matter to us.

This is Science:

## Temperature relation between a planet and its star

Here is an application of black-body laws to determine the black
body temperature of a planet. The surface may be warmer due to the greenhouse effect.[13]

### Factors

(Image Source: Wikipedia)

Earth’s longwave thermal radiation intensity, from clouds, atmosphere and ground

The temperature of a planet depends on a few factors:

• Incident radiation (from the Sun, for example)
• Emitted radiation (for example Earth’s infrared glow)
• The albedo effect (the fraction of light a planet reflects)
• The greenhouse effect (for planets with an atmosphere)
• Energy generated internally by a planet itself (due to radioactive decay, tidal heating and adiabatic contraction due to cooling).

For the inner planets, incident and emitted radiation have the most
significant impact on temperature. This derivation is concerned mainly
with that.

### Assumptions

If we assume the following:

1. The Sun and the Earth both radiate as spherical black bodies.
2. The Earth is in thermal equilibrium.

then we can derive a formula for the relationship between the Earth’s temperature and the Sun’s surface temperature.

### Derivation

To begin, we use the Stefan–Boltzmann law to find the total power (energy/second) the Sun is emitting:

The Earth only has an absorbing area equal to a two dimensional circle, rather than the surface of a sphere.
$P_{S emt} = \left( \sigma T_{S}^4 \right) \left( 4 \pi R_{S}^2 \right) \qquad \qquad (1)$

where

$\sigma \,$ is the Stefan–Boltzmann constant,
$T_S \,$ is the surface temperature of the Sun, and

$R_S \,$ is the radius of the Sun.

The Sun emits that power equally in all directions. Because
of this, the Earth is hit with only a tiny fraction of it. This is the
power from the Sun that the Earth absorbs:

$P_{E abs} = P_{S emt} (1-\alpha) \left( \frac{\pi R_{E}^2}{4 \pi D^2} \right) \qquad \qquad (2)$
where

$R_{E} \,$ is the radius of the Earth and
$D \,$ is the astronomical unit, the distance between the Sun and the Earth.
$\alpha \$ is the albedo of Earth.

Even though the earth only absorbs as a circular area πR2, it emits equally in all directions as a sphere:

$P_{E emt} = \left( \sigma T_{E}^4 \right) \left( 4 \pi R_{E}^2 \right) \qquad \qquad (3)$
where TE is the black body temperature of the earth.

Now, our second assumption was that the earth is in thermal equilibrium, so the power absorbed must equal the power emitted:

$P_{E abs} = P_{E emt}\,$
So plug in equations 1, 2, and 3 into this and we get

$\left( \sigma T_{S}^4 \right) \left( 4 \pi R_{S}^2 \right) (1-\alpha) \left( \frac{\pi R_{E}^2}{4 \pi D^2} \right) = \left( \sigma T_{E}^4 \right) \left( 4 \pi R_{E}^2 \right).\,$

Many factors cancel from both sides and this equation can be greatly simplified.

### The result

After canceling of factors, the final result is

 $T_{E} = T_{S}\sqrt{\frac{\sqrt{1-\alpha}R_{S}}{2 D}}$ where $T_E \,$ is the blackbody temperature of the Earth. $T_S \,$ is the surface temperature of the Sun, $R_S \,$ is the radius of the Sun, $D \,$ is the distance between the Sun and the Earth, α is the albedo of the Earth.

In other words, given the assumptions made, the temperature of Earth
depends only on the surface temperature of the Sun, the radius of the
Sun, the distance between Earth and the Sun and the albedo of Earth.

### Temperature of Earth

If we substitute in the measured values for the Sun,

$T_{S} = 5778 \ \mathrm{K},$
$R_{S} = 6.96 \times 10^8 \ \mathrm{m},$
$D = 1.496 \times 10^{11} \ \mathrm{m},$
$\alpha = 0.367 \$

we’ll find the effective temperature of the Earth to be

$T_E = 248.573 \ \mathrm{K}$

This is the black body temperature that would cause the same amount of energy emission, as measured from space.

That’s what physics tells us; now, this is spirituality:

We already know what 5778 is supposed to portend and that the Sun, represents father (Av), and according to the kabbalists it also represents Zeir Anpin (6), making its speed of 600,000 mph even more fitting.

Now, that the sun’s surface temperature, or radiance, is 5778 K, is astonishing, but even more so given that as illustrated in the conclusions of the above scientific equations, the radiance of the Earth is 248.573, since 248 is the numerical value for Abraham, who is always associated with mercy(rachum) , which also has a gematria value 248.

One of the key spiritual concepts here is that this radiance of the Earth, this Light of mercy. is returning Light (Or Hazer, as it’s known to the kabbalists). The earth has no light of its own; it can only reflect light back part of the Light (heat, radiance) that Sun has blessed it with.

Now, while, it’s true that if the Earth’s temperature weren’t 248, it wouldn’t numerically mean Abraham, or mercy, it also means that it it were increased to 249 or decreased to 247, we’d have either global warming or another ice age. So that fact that the earth’s surface temperature is being increased by the greenhouse effect is just another indication of us selfishnessly and shortsightedly messing with divine intent and trying to play G-d, rather than take a clue and act like G-d (with merciful radiance).

It’s important to understand that the biblical names, especially the names of the Patriarchs, represent far more than historic figures; they represent energetic archetypes that are available for us to tap into, like the log in codes on cosmic web sites full of important information and gifts for us to download, and also full of great links to other important sites.

Moreover, given that that the exact number for the Earth’s radiance is 248.573, there are even more spiritual significances to be drawn (cosmic linkages to other key sites). And as is explained in The Genesis Prayer, the sum of the 5 Names of the 5 Books of Moses is 2480, (thus 2480+5 =2485), and just as important, the sum of all the positive integers through the number 70, as in the 70 years that Israel will attain in the year 5778 is 2485.

Just to give you an idea of how awesome a document the Torah and the divine intent that went into it, and that links its every word and letter to the cosmos, we can take the Torah’s 5 quantitative structural elements—the words, letters, verses, columns, and the rows—and collectively add them up to get 401273. Then considering that the Milk Way galaxy spirals according to the mathematical constant Phi, the resultant equation 401273/Phi (1.61803399) = 248000, shows us yet another integration of the divine schematic for the cosmos with the Torah and Earth, the intercession of the physical with the spiritual. (In The Genesis Prayer, from St Martins Press, you can read the details and see dozens of such awesome and awe-inspiring results).

That both 248.573 and 401273 end in 73 is not coincidental either, as 73 is the numerical value for Chochma/Wisdom, the 9th sefira (dimension). Indeed, the Torah’s first verse, which itself is integrally related to Phi, Pi, the 42-Letter Name of G-d(Ana B’Koach), and also to the value for Mashiach, has a numerical value of 2701, which is the sum of all the positive integers through 73.

And why 73, Wisdom?

Because just as the Torah has (600,000-408) flames of G-d’s wisdom, there is wisdom (73) for us in 248.573, and wisdom will be what is waiting for us at the end of the 70 years (from 2485 = Sum 70) since the birth of Israel in 1948 CE, for the Tree-of-life reality is wisdom. Remember, to the kabbalists, these numbers gateways, cosmic web sites. They can be the same to us as well, but at the very least they need to serve to awaken the spirituality inside us.

And since spiritually minded people have been referring to the earth as mother earth for some time now, it’s further interesting that 248 is also the numerical value of womb. In simple terms, the Sun gives, the earth receives, and uses what the sun gives to give birth to life.

To further understand their relationship we have to divide 5778 by 248.573, or 5778/248.573 = 23.2447, where we find that232 is the numerical value of the 4 aspects of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH: Av, Sag, Mah, Ban), the ineffable name of G-d.

Therefore, the relationship between the Sun, or the Mashiach Radiance, and the Earth, Abraham’s merciful nurturing radiance, is the fully expanded expression of G-d. This is the relationship G-d wants us to have with him. He doesn’t care about the numbers; He just wants us to get it, and to get it in time.

Incidentally, there were 2447 years (as in 5778/248.573 =23.2447) up to the Exodus from Egypt and the time of greatest reception of Light, the Torah at Sinai, exactly 66.6 Biblical jubilee years (or 3330 actual years) before 5778.

And to sum up the these numbers and put them into perspective: since this physical cosmic relationship between the Sun and the Earth is quoted in the temperatures 248 K and 5778 K, it’s more than curious that 5778 HC is the year 2018 CE in the Western Calendar and 2018 HC was the year of G-d’s (232) Covenant with Abraham (248), which has been prophesied over and over again to be fulfilled in 5778, which is 70 (as in the Sum of the integers through 70 = 2485) years after Israel became a Nation in 1948 CE, and is conversely the year Abraham was born in 1948 HC. Which now helps explain the scientific fact that when viewed from space, the Earth’s maximum point of reflected light is centered over Israel.

Moreover, this does help explain, as chronicled in The Divine Calendar, why King David, whose life’s midpoint ( in 2889 HC) marked the exact halfway point between Adam and Moshiach in 5778, and why he had to live for 70 years; and why the Second Temple was destroyed in 70 CE; and the First Temple in 422 BCE (422 being the gematria value of “seventy”); and also why the square root of the Hebrew year the First Temple was destroyed, 422 BCE = 3338 HC is 57.78.

Remember, these are gateways to knowledge and gifts, sites in a cosmic internet, which is why they always link one to another. And the more there are the bigger and more awesome a picture there is when you connect the dots. The only difference is that instead of G00gle’s algorithms, you need to use spiritual ones, (and trust me, spiritual ones are a lot easier to understand).

We could stop there, but it’s the nature of Kabbalah to look deeper, and when we do we find that the core temperature of the Sun is a whole lot hotter, in fact it is 156 Million degrees kelvin. And while 156 is the numerical value of Joseph, integrally linked to the Moshiach, the messiah. And while 156 =6 x 26 (the value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), it’s also 156,000,000 = 27,000 x 5778, its surface termperature.

Taking a second to digest this. The furnace of enormous power (156 million K) that the Sun has at its core, is spiritually the energy of Joseph (Yesod of Zeir Anpin), who represents the concentration into a point of all the energy of the 6 (as in 6 x 26) sefira (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin above it. Then from the Sun’s core this energy is stepped down 30 x 30 x 30 times to a level (5778 K) that will give and sustain life on Earth, who through the intervention of G-d’s 4 aspects (232) is defined by its own merciful nurturing returning radiance of 248.573 K.

And this is all going on against the backdrop of the expanding darkness that the Earth and the Sun are coming into alignment with, and which we can feel descending over us like a thick cold fog. One of the lessons we must take away from this cosmic equation is that we can’t just receive: we must give back if we are to perpetuate life (physically and spiritually). That these equations are connected to the Torah and its first verse are not surprising given that the verse states, “In the Beginning G’d created Heaven (Zeir Anpin) and Earth.” It continues on to say, “The earth was without form and empty with darkness on the face of the depths, but G-d’s spirit (ruach) moved on the water’s surface.”

This image of the Sun and the Earth juxtaposed to the darkness adn G’d Spirit moving across it are reflected in the picture of what our solar system will look like against the cosmos in the year 2012, and the years before and after for that matter. We can use it to glean the deeper meaning of what’s involved:

The round white spot (below the name “Pluto” is the Sun, and the half round spot between Jupiter and Uranius is the Moon. The white lines indicate the approximate boundary of the Milky Way.

In Abraham’s Book of Formation (the Sefer Yetzirah), he speaks of the 3 fathers (primordial energies), which he relates to “Earth, Wind, and Fire,” and he says “He set them in the Teli, the cycle, and the heart.” The first part, among other things, pretty obviously relates to the Earth (248), the ruach (spirit of G-d, 232) and the Sun, (fire at 156 million K and 5778 K). But, the Teli, which over the centuries has been described by the kabbalists of blessed memory as the pole serpent, a dragon, and the Milky Way galaxy, which if you look at the picture below, you’ll understand their similarity. Many of them also say that it is the axis around which the cosmos rotate.

And in Isaiah 27:1, we have a multiple references to the same Pole serpent, in conjunction with the End of Days and the final redemption: “On that day, with His great harsh sword, G-d will visit and overcome the Leviathan, the Pole serpent, and the Leviathan, the coiled Serpent, and He will kill the dragon of the Sea…”

We don’t know exactly what the Teli was that Abraham was referring to to, but the full verse from the Sefer Yetzirah is: “A proof of this true witnesses in the Universe, year, Soul and a rule of twelve and seven and three: He set them in the Teli, the cycle, and the heart.” We know the rule of 12, 7, and 3 refers to the 3 types of primordial Hebrew letters, which run on cycles and which spiritually control the planets and that these cycles also spell out 5778, but from the latest fusion of modern science and ancient spirituality we see that the universe is indeed evidence and witness to cycle of 25778 and of the year 5778 and in the heart of the Milky Way lies the darkness of the serpent that’s capable of overwhelming our souls, dragging them into the Abyss. And we also see that the universe and cosmos have been designed not only to give us Light and life, but also hope and the ability to see beyond the limitations and boundaries of our physical thoughts.

Now is the time; we need to use science to increase our awe of the divine and to take the signs that science call spell out for us to make us more spiritual and to become better citizens of the cosmos and of our communities. Now is not the time to take science as a refuge to hide behind as everything we thought we knew implodes around us.

As 2012 approaches, we all have a clear choice to make, metaphorically, we can get seduced by the Serpent and get swallowed up by the leviathan, or we can follow the Sun, the Light. The earth will be here either way, but whether we chose to follow its example of giving back and radiating the returning Light of mercy, or to keep selfishly taking, is up to each of us. Not only is the writing on the wall, but it’s in the stars. 4000 years ago, Abraham (248) wrote that ” A proof of this true witnesses in the Universe, year, Soul and a rule of twelve and seven and three,” could he have know as we do today that “twelve, seven, and three” help define the equation 401273/Phi = 248,000? Maybe not, but he didn’t have to; he had the necessary awe already. His is the energy and example we need to tap into to navigate through the darkness and into the Light.
