The Covenant of Peace; A Date is Revealed

In the Torah portion Pinchas, we find a broken letter vav(V) in the phrase “The Covenant of Peace,” the reward given to Pinchas by G-d for selflessly stopping the plague with his spear. Last week we revealed a new, yet ancient, and very telling gematria cipher, and when applied to “The Covenant of Peace,” a date is revealed, the same date given to us by Rav Yehuda HaLevi Ashlag and the tzaddikim for the geula (final redemption).

First, we must note that the Hebrew letters are like holograms in that even a part of them contains the entire image (letter). Thus the broken vav (V), shaped like Pinchas’ spear, is numerically equal to two Vavs(V,V). That said, The Covenant of Peace,” Et Briti Shalom (ET BRYTY ShLVM) has a total new gematria value 2017 when the kolel for the 12 letters is included. The year 2017 CE is the beginning of the year 5778 HC that Rav Ashlag and others have given for the revelation of the Tree-of-life reality.

Moreover, if we only consider a singular vav in the word Peace (Shalom), in other words, if we consider it as a broken peace, the new gematria reveals the year 2010, leaving us the 8 years of the Brit (covenant) of Moshiach (the Messiah, also know as the Prince of Peace) to complete the tumultuous “birthpages of Moshiach,” as the sages and prophets have described it in 5778.

In the next few days, we’ll also reveal how a revered representation of that same spear in Washington D.C. reveals this same date, but by a different and no less telling method. And also how the 42 letters of the Tree-of-life’s 10 sefirot (dimensions) also give us the date 2017.

Shabbat Shalom

Ezra.

Chanukah in June

It’s funny that in the portion of Naso, we read about the sacrifices that we read during the 8 days of Chanukah and in the very next portion BeHa’alothekha we read about the Menorah in Chapter 8 of Bamidbar. Obviously these two portions must be connected somehow.  Each Chanukah we read about the sacrifices from Numbers (B’midbar) 7:1-89 and 8:1-4, and while the 89 verses of chapter 7 obviously correspond to the gematria value of Chanukah (89), the 4 verses of chapter 8 correspond to the 4 periods of exile.

One simple way that these two portions are connected is in the sum of their two names. Naso has a numerical value of 351 and BeHa’alothekha has a final value of 1007, which together sum to 1358, or keter (1000) plus 358, the numerical value of Mashiach. That would be fine and dandy but of little value to us, unless we also knew that encoded into the sacrifices for Chanukah, the festival of lights designed to bring Mashiach, was the date for Moshiach’s arrival.

Before we explain about some of the deeper meanings of the laundry list of sacrifices that read about in the portion of Naso, on each of the 8 days of Chanukah and that were to be made by the 12 tribes in the Mishkan or Holy Temple, we should note the complete numerical value of the “Menorah” found in Chapter 8 in BeHa’alothekha is 359, the numerical value for Satan (or for Mashiach in Aramaic). It’s common in sourcing the essential energies that the numerical values represent that we find that the cure and the problem have the same exact value, which is why the Menorah (359) is our cure for overcoming Satan (359) in the same way Moshiach (358) is the cure for the snake (358).  Energy is usually  depicted as a wave so to visualize this picture a symmetrical wave along the X-Axis of a simple X-Y graph whereby the peaks reach 358 units high and the troughs 358 units low. Superimposing the energies cancels one another out.

Back to the sacrifices:1 Silver plate weighing 130 shekels (ShKL); 1 Silver bowl weighing 70 shekels; 1 Gold bowl weighting 10 shekels; 1 Young bull; 1 Ram; 1 male lamb (1 year old); 1 male goat; 2 oxen; 5 rams; 5 male goats; 5 male lambs (1 year old).

You have to admit it’s an odd group of items, but with everything in the Torah, there is always method in the madness. (130+70+10+1+1+1+1+2+5+5+5) = 231, as in the 231 Gates of Wisdom, which we know from Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah are the number of pairs of letters that can be made from the 22 letters of the Alef-bet, which he called the 22 building blocks of the universe.

Besides helping us to cancel out the sins that our souls committed when they were joined as one within Adam during the 130 years that he was separated from Eve, the 130 shekels of silver for the plate that we sacrifice each day corresponds to Jacob’s age when he entered Egypt to begin the exile in Egypt. This itself is no coincidence as his 130 years also served to mitigate that self-same sin of Adams. 130 is also the value of Sinai, where the Israelites received the Torah 210 years later. Of course, if we add together the weight of the silver and gold (representing right and left column energies) we get (130+70+10) = 210.

By way of further explanation, the 70 shekels of silver correspond to the 70 family members with Jacob who entered Egypt. It also represents the 70 nations of the current exile and the year 70 CE when the Second Holy Temple was destroyed and the current exile began. And while the 10 shekels of gold correspond to the 10 Utterances received at Sinai and the 10 Sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-life. Moreover, while the full weight of metals was 210 shekels corresponding to the 210 years of the Egyptian exile, the value of the word Shekel (ShKL) itself is 430, corresponds to the 430 years of the full first exile from the Covenant of Abraham, which began in 2018 HC and ended with the crossing of the YM Suf and the reception of the Torah at Sinai in 2448 HC.

Now, a deeper secret within this weight is that “210 shekels (ShKL)” are equivalent to a numerical value of 210 x 430 = 90,300 or 903 x 100, an 903 is the recognized sum of all the positive integers through 42 and since there is a spiritual tenet that nothing is ever lost, 903 is the full inclusive value of 42, encompassing all the energy of the integers that came before it. Going back to our depiction of energy as waves, we can picture 903 as the sum of the peaks of energy level 1, plus that of energy level 2 all the way through energy level 42.

If you recall the Chanukah reading consists of 89 plus 4, or 93 verses. It’s a possible allusion to 903; nevertheless, the word Shekel is repeated 26 times during in the 93 verses of the full reading and not only is 26 the value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), but the value of the word shekel (ShKL) spelled out (gematria milui) is 620, that of keter, the highest, crowning sefira (dimension).  Then in the often repeated phrase amongst these verses, “Shekel B’Shekel H’Kodesh,” the word H’Kodesh (HKDSh) likewise has the gematria milui (spelled-out-value) including the kolel of 1000, which, as stated above is also representative of keter. Therefore, the phrase Shekel B’Shekel H’Kodesh can read as “the crown in the crown at the crown,” or “keter of keter of keter,” which is the highest level imaginable.

All this reiterates all the potent energy available in these connections to the YHVH and to keter of keter of keter, but how does it relate to date for the arrival of Moshaich?

To begin with, the word H’kodesh in gematria milui sofit has the numerical value of 2008, as in the recent year 2008 CE, when from a financial standpoint the world began its implosion, when the world’s stock markets declined a collective 42%. 2008 CE would be Of course, this is 10 years before the prophesied time frame of 2017-2018 CE (5778 HC), and could be accounted for with the kolel, but there is much much more that ties the sacrifices more precisely to this very specific date.

For example there are 41 combined occurrences of the 3 words in the phrase Shekel B’Shekel H’Kodesh found in the reading of the sacrifices and their average value is ((15 x 409)+(12×430)+(14×432))/3 – 3 (kolel) = 5778, as in the year 5778 HC (2018 CE).

Then there are also 6 different phrases throughout the sacrifices that have a numerical value of 5777, (representing the year 2017 CE).  Of the 5845 verses in the Torah, there are only 13 incidences where the value of a phrase that occurs wholly within a single verse has the value of 5777 and one of those is verse Numbers 7:87 of the sacrifices. It is the summary verse for all the sacrifices: “…12 young bulls, 12 rams and 12 male lambs a year old, together with their grain offering. 12 male goats….”

This is significant because the geula was prophesied to most probably occur in the period 5777.78 to 5778.28 .

As for the year 5778, amongst the 93 verses of the sacrifices there are 16 occurrences of phrases (defined as a contiguous grouping or words) with the total value of 5778, the last of which is in the final verse of the sacrifices, Numbers 8:4, where we find the 22-word phrase “…the Menorah, just as The Lord Commanded Moses. This is how the menorah was made: It was made from hammered gold…had shown.”

And not coincidentally, the number 84 (or twice 42) represents Pad, redemption, the union of the upper and lower Mem-Bet (42-Letter Names) necessary for the geula.

But possibly even more telling, of the 5845 verses in the Torah, 184 phrases wholly within verses or 3.14% of the total verses, have a value of 2019, as in 2019 CE, the first year of the new era of Mashiach as prophesied by the tzaddikim. And of these 184 phrases, 35 are within the 93 verses of the sacrifices, an unfathomably large percentage. Moreover, 184 is the numerical value of Pkad, which chazal has independently connected to the coming of Mashiach and which we wrote about in a previous blog.

So of the 93 verses of the sacrifices, fully, 57 (6, 16, and 35) are either connected to the year 2017 (5777), 2018 (5778), or 2019 and another 41 times specifically to 5778 through the repeated occurrences of shekel b’shekel h’kodesh.

There’s no statistical way that this is coincidence. And if you grabbed a calculator and did the math, you saw that 57/93 = Phi (.6180…).  Even more precisely, it worked out as 57/93 = .612903, or 612 (brit/covenant) and 903, and allusion to the mem-bet (42-Letter Name) as described above.

This is what connects the two portions read after Shavuot, when we’ve just received the Torah in marriage once again. It’s clear that as we can every Chanukah, 6 months earlier, we can also connect now through the subliminal connections programmed into the sacrifices to keter, to the geula and to the coming of Moshiach.  Every 6 months, we get this wonderful opportunity to connect with the Tree-of-life reality, and at the end of 66.6 jubilee years in 5778, we will get the ultimate opportunity to connect to it permanently.

But it is not some G-d given right. It is an opportunity we’ll have to earn.

We’ll have to make sacrifices.

The 4 verses in Chapter 8 of Bmidbar (BMDBR, which incidentally permutes to (DBR MB, say the 42) corresponds to the 4 exiles. And at the end of the 4th exile, we must make sacrifices. Each of the 4 types of animals of the sacrifices had a specific purpose to help the 4 types of man.  But the gold and silver had other significance too: to open up the 231 Gates of Wisdom for us.

The complete value (standard plus ordinal) of silver, representing gevura/judgment or left column energy is 203, as in the first 3 letters of the Torah. And the complete value of gold, representing chesed/loving-kindness, or right column energy, is 28, as in the 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse. All 12 tribes were instructed to give both gold and silver in the weights/proportions described above for the sacrifices.  And just as (130+70+10+1+1+1+1+2+5+5+5) = 231, representing all the sacrifices, the complete values of gold and silver together (28 + 203) = 231 as well. And not only do these 231 Gates correspond with the 231 letter pair combinations amongst the 22 letters of the alef-bet but 231 is also the sum of the positive integers through 22, just as 903 was for 42.  Gold and silver, money, assets, mean nothing in the achievement of the Tree-of-life reality–it can’t be purchased, but chesed/loving-kindness, and helping one another, these are the commodities that count.  Remember, all the 12 tribes gave equally. The sacrifices are made for the community. It took more than Moses; it took unity to reach the Tree-of-life opportunity last time. And also to build the Holy Temples. And it was disunity that blew the opportunity and crumbled the Temples.

The hope for the community lies in our individual sacrifices for the sake of others, for the sake of our souls. Satan equates to selfish desires; Moshiach to overcoming them.

Naming Names; The Gifts we’ve been Given.

What’s in a Name? Why does the Torah pause to list them? What happened 3330 years ago (66.6 jubilee years) that we NEED to understand to help us today?

“These are the names of the sons of Israel who came to Egypt with Jacob…”

The second of the 5 Books of Moses is named Exodus, but in the original Hebrew it is Shmot, the Hebrew word for Names, and as in all the portions and Books of the Torah, the seed level of its energy and inspiration is in its first few words. Thus the seed level impetuous for the Exodus from Egypt, the end of the exile from Egypt, and the giving of the Torah, is in the first few words of the Book.

The very first word, V’eleh (VELH), links us both to the beginning of the Torah and Creation itself, and to all the events, and to the 42 journeys the Israelites will make during the entire rest of the Torah. It’s numerical value is 42, and it’s pretty obvious that 42 Shmot (42 Names) a reference to the 42-Letter Name of G-d utilized in the splitting of the Sea of Reeds and present in all the significant Biblical journeys, such as the one referred to in this verse.

The second set of Names hinted at here is a little more cryptic and is concealed with in the word for Names, Shmot (ShMVT) itself, whose gematria value is 746 and whose ordinal value is 62, as in the 62 letter yuds in the 10 Commandments (utterances) whose collectively equate to 620, that of keter, the highest crowning sefira (dimension). This connection to the 10 Utterances is not without significance because is we add the progressive form of the number 4 for the 4 letters in Shmot, we get 4+3+2+1=10 and 62 + 10 = 72, as in the 72 Names of G-d utilized in the splitting of the Sea of Reeds (Red Sea) and the complete value for Shmot, defined by 746+62+10= 818, the sum of the small gematria of the 216 letters in the 72 Names (Triplets).

Before we get into the Names themselves and their mechanics, we should ask why the Torah felt the need to put them first and foremost in this Book concerning the Exodus, the end of the first exile, and the reception of the Torah and tree-of-life reality at Sinai.

It’s because the first exile is mimicked in the last, and we’re going to need these Names (Tools) to split our own Red Sea and to get out. Upon very careful reading of the Torah as guided by chazal, we can see that on one level the Israelites never wanted to leave Egypt. They were slaves to their own desires and that was their bondage that they needed to break.

We’re no different today, slaves to our materialistic desires, to our own personal agendas. A slave has no freedom to choose. And for all the visible freedoms of our society, we can’t even see our own souls, let alone anyone else’s. The illusions of our everyday needs and desires are so thick we can’t even imagine the tree-of-life reality behind the curtains where are already have everything we need. The manna and wells of Miriam, and clouds of glory are there, ready to shelter and sustain us with everything we need, but almost no one day even imagines them to have once been real, let alone to be an option for us to choose. That is our slavery, utter and nearly complete.

In Shmot 4:21 G-d made Pharaoh obstinate. That is to say, up to that point he was reasonable and would have granted Moses request in Shmot 5:3 for a 3 day vacation for the Israelites to make sacrifices in the desert.

But the Israelites didn’t want the desert, or to make sacrifices anymore than we do today. Which is why the dark side is also becoming more obstinate. It wasn’t enough that we had to make our daily bricks to pay our bills to the man-made system that sustains us and to achieve our false reality dreams, but now thanks to the financial crises we have to make them without straw.

Shmot 6:1 “..[Pharaoh] will be forced to drive them from his land.” Why would he have to be forced to drive they out if they will so willing to escape? Because they didn’t want to got.

We to will have to forced out. It’s coming, along with the frigid winds blowing across the lands. The Bible has given us a blueprint.

Then in Shmot 6:9 after Moses conveyed G-d words to the Israelites they rebuked him and would not leave, which is why in Shmot 6:10 G-d tells Moses, to then go to Pharaoh “and he will let them leave.”

G-d couldn’t wake up the Israelites, so he shuck up the oppressive powers that gripped them–the banking systems, the marketplaces, the insurance system, the political systems. And he kept shaking until the Israelites fell off their perches in the branches of the tree of Good and evil.

This level of interpretation dovetails with all the later cries (complaints) to Moses by the Israelites to return to Egypt where the melons were so delicious and the steaks were so juicy–pretty good food for slaves. People couldn’t realize there are other options (spiritual options) when their mouths were full, so G-d forced them to imagine the food when they were empty. And with His help, they did, and manna tasted like anything they wanted it to.

We too today are slaves, and everyday more food is being taken out of our mouths. We too will be forced to imagine a new reality, and He will be there to help us when we do. It’s a leap of faith, just like jumping into the Red Sea before it split. But even then after witnessing the 10 plagues it still took the armed Egyptians at their backs for the Israelites to jump. What will it take us?

We’ve been given the same Names to use as our tools as the Israelites, who were stuck in the darkness of Egypt 66.6 jubilee years ago (50 year intervals). So I guess, it’s time we learn to use them (properly).

Time at the moment the Names were given to the Israelites, as marked by the passage of the Torah readings, has consumed 50 Biblical chapters , 1 grand jubilee year of 2448 years, equal to all 2448 years of the 4 exiles culminating in 5778 HC. Yes, the Patriarchs and the tzaddikim had them earlier as the tzaddikim continue to use them to this day, but it’s a paradigm shift when they are made available to everyone. Moses and Aaron alone couldn’t end the exile–the people had to do it for themselves.

The number 50 to the kabbalists represents the 50 Gates of Binah (understanding). It can also chas v’shalom (G-d forbid) represent the 50 gates of negativity, which the trapped Israelites in Egypt were knocking on back then.

But, with G-d’s help and the arrival of Moses, and 10 plagues followed by 10 miracles the Israelites woke up and received the Torah and 10 Utterances at Mount Sinai. Because of this awakening and reception, there were an additional 137 chapters of the Torah, and 137 is the numerical value of the word Kabbalah, meaning “to receive. We received another 137 chapters of Life.

In one of the strangest Torah passages, it says G-d wanted to kill Moses. That would have been it, light out just before the Israelites reached the 50th gate. G-d would not have allowed them to enter the 50th gate of negativity. That passage was in Shmot 4:24, and when it was decided to kill Moses the Man, Moses Mashiach Ben David rose in his place in order to not only save his generation, but to save ours, all the generations.

We’re knocking on the gates again, and need all the tools the Torah has to offer us in order to help ourselves and to merit the help of Moses again.

Then in Shmot 6:11, the Torah starts listing the heads of the Tribes and their genealogy, where it mentions three lifespans, all in the genealogy of Moses. It’s notable that 611 is the numerical value for Torah and that 616 is the numerical value for H’Torah (“the Torah”) because it’s in Shmot 6:16, the Torah starts with the phrase “V’Eleh Shmotagain, and it’s here where it gives us the 3 direct ancestors of Moses.

It was back in Shmot 1:1 where we last saw the phrase V’Eleh Shmot and the Torah listed Israel’s (Jacob’s) children who came to Egypt with him. Their initials in the order they were listed added up to 616 for the first 10, leaving Asher as the 11th, whose name makes up the central part of the powerful Name Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh “I am that I am,” but more about that later.

We’re told that Levi lived for 137 years; Kehoth lived for 133 years: and Amram, lived for 137 years. All together the last 3 generations until Moses, the 26th Generation in the live of Adam, lived 407 years, and the secret here is that the square root of 407 is 20.17424 or the fusion of the year 2017 CE, which is when the prophesied years 5778 begins, and 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David. (As explained in The Divine Calendar)

This hints of Moshe’s (Mose’s) connection to Mashiach and that he will return as H’Moshiach, which is reinforced by the fact that the numerical sum of the names Levi, Kehoth and Amram is 901, because the sum of all the positive integers through 424 (Mashiach Ben David) is 90100, which significantly enough is also analogous to the 90100 Yuds, Heys and Vavs in the Torah, the 3 component letters of the Tettragrammaton (YHVH). (As explained in The Genesis Prayer)

In the continuation of this blog we’ll explain the details and significance of the Names, the tools we’ve been given to help us break free, and into the Tree-of-Life reality, including “I Am that I Am” Ehyeh Asher Eyheh, the 42-letter Name (Shem Mem-Bet, Ana B’koach) and the 72 Names (Triplets)

Reblog this post [with Zemanta]

Time, Times, and half a Time.

There is a Biblical mystery that has intrigued man for over 2000 years, and another deeper mystery that has perplexed him even longer. The first is what Daniel meant by “Time, times, and half a time,” in his revelations about the end of days. And the second is what is Time?

The mysterious verse in Daniel 12:7 connected to the end of days, “Time, times, and half a time,” is connected to the verse Genesis 23:1 from Chayeh Sarah, whose connection to the end of days has already been discussed in depth in our post Sarah Lives, and Who else? where we are told that Sarah lived for 127 years.

Besides the obvious 127 connection, in the Chayeh Sarah verse we also have the curious wording Shanah, shanah, Shan’im or year, year, and years, similar in structure to Time, times, and half a time, especially since Shanah can be regarded as time as well.

But to better understand this, we need to go to a place before time, where the primordial letter alef exists before the physical universe took shape. In that place/empty space before Creation and before the Torah the 3 Mother came into existence. But first among them was the alef.

Alef typically has the numerical value of 1 and is spelled, ELP, which has the numerical value of 111. But ELP can also be the word elef, or one thousand (1000). Now, if we substitute, as the Arizal did, the value 1000 for the value 1, the value of alef spelled out become 1110, which is 10 x 111, or Alef expanded to cover all 10 sefira/dimensions.

But what is odd, is that Shanah, shanah, Shan’im also has the numerical value of 1110, and thus is spiritually connected to primordial time, to the beginning before Creation.

There are many different gematria bible code ciphers the Ari used, but another extremely common one is to use the sofit, or 5 final letter values in the words that have these final letters. And when we do, the expanded Alef (ELP) from becomes 1000 + 30 + 800 = 1830. And when we add the 3 for the kolel of the 3 letters, we get 1833, which is the value of the first 21 letters of the Shem mem-bet, the 42-Letter Name through the midpoint in the 42 letters, and at the location of the secret fountain/well of living waters that we’ve discussed in other posts. And likewise previously discussed it’s in the center of where the Brit (covenant) of Mashiach is spelled out.

But speaking of 42, it is the value of IMA, Mother, spelled EME, which the kabbalists tells us is really referring to the energy level/Sefira/dimension called Binah. And when we use both versions of the expanded alef, IMA, spelled EME, has the value of 1830 + 640 + 1110 = 3580, or 10 x 358, the value of Mashiach, the Messiah in all 10 sefirot/dimensions.

The word Emet, truth, is graphically synonymous with the 42-Letter Name of G-d in that the words emet (EMT) has the numerical value of 441, which is 21 squared and we know from chazal, that Emet represents the two Ehyeh’s (EHYH) each of value 21, combined in the Name, “Eyheh Asher Ehyeh” (I Am that I Am), the source of the lower 42-Letter Name.

Moreover, just like the word Emet (EMT) the first letter of the 42-Letter Name (Ana B’koach) is Alef (E) and the last is Tav (T) and there are 40 (M) letters in between.

And when we spell out Emet (EMT) using the expanded Alef and add 8 for the kolel of the 8 letters, we get 1830 + 640 + 412 +8 = 2890, which when we double it for the two emets (truths) less the kolel of 2 for doubling, we get (2890 x 2) – 2 = 5778, the year prophesy says Mashiach will come.

What about Time x Times + half a Time?:

21squared + 21 squared + 21 = (21×21) + (21×21) + 21 = 903, which is the sum of all the integers from 1 – 42, in other words, the spiritually complete 42.

So Ehyeh = Half a Time

and (Half a Time + Half a Time) = 42-Letter Name

and (Half a Time X Half a Time) = Emet

and Emet = 42-Letter Name

So Emet = Time and thus

Truth = Time in the spiritual word = the 42-Letter Name

and also, spiritually, addition (+) is similar to multiplication (X)

and (Time x Times + Half a Time) = the spiritually complete 42

Now, the 21squared in Emet is (Ehyeh x Ehyeh) or (EHYH X EHYH) and when we use the spelled out version of Ehyeh, we get ELP HY YVD HY which breaks down to Alef (ELP) and (HY YVD HY) of value 50, representing the 50 gates of Binah (understanding) that we will reach in the time of Moshiach.

But the full 10 letters equal 1830 + 50 + 10 = 1890, to which if we were to add the cryptic 127 years of Sarah’s life (from Genesis 23:1) or the digits 127 from Daniel 12:7, we’d get 1890 + 127 = 2017 CE, the year the Mashiach (Binah) consciousness is supposed to begin (5778, actually 5777.78).

In case we were to that that a coincidence, the sum of the 2 Ehyehs is exactly 1880 x 2 = 3760 HC, which is the pivotal year “0” in the Gregorian calendar.

Now, we can understand why Ehyeh, a higher Name of G-d is called “half a Time.” And we can understand how the 42-Letter Name created by the 2 Ehyeh or twice half-time, can control our perception of reality to bring us what seems like miracles into our reality, as explained in The Genesis Prayer. And seeing as Time controls distance, now we can also understand why all Torah journeys are governed by the Mem-Bet (42-Letter name).

What does Time have to do with the Messiah?

Time is a journey and at the end of the journey is the Light, the Messiah.

The Bible makes that clear. If we add the 231, as in the 231 Gates of Wisdom described in Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah, and which corresponds to Genesis 23:1, to the 127 from Daniel 12:7, we’d get 231 + 127 = 358, Mashiach.

Now, the Hebrew for “Time, Times, and half a Time” (LMVAD MVATYM VChZY) reveals even more. The first 3 letters have the numerical value of 76, as does the first letter of each of the 3 words. And we know from the Arizal, that 76 is the numerical value of the highest aspect of Chochma (Av) of the Tetragrammton (YVD HY VYV HY) including 4 for the YHVH). But even more significant is that the rest of the letters add up to 358, Mashiach.

And if we take off the 10 for the 10 letters in the Tetragrammaton (Av): (YVD HY VYV HY), or alternatively, for the final yud (Y) in “half (VChetzi)” we get a total of 424 for the phrase, which is the value of Mashiach Ben David.

And the final letters in the verse (DMY), which we know from chazal project the future, add up to 54, which connects to both the letters of the month (nun and dalet) of Scorpio, according to Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah, from which we’ve been told by the Zohar that Mashiach Ben David will come, and to the year 5778 HC because 107 is the sum of all the positive integers through 5778 and 5778/107 = 54.

So what good is knowing all this?

Before we traveled in spiritual darkness. Now we know what can illuminate our journey and speed our way through time and toward Mashiach.

And if you still have doubts about time, know this: the Hebrew word for time used in Daniel 12:7 is Mo’ed (MVAD), whose value is 120 and whose ordinal value is 39 and thus time’s complete value is 120 + 39 = 159, the small gematria value of the Upper 42-Letter Name of G-d.

Take your time and digest this, but don’t take forever; there are only 9 years until 5778.
