5778 Is Upon Us

The year 5778 is finally upon us and the entire world has been witnessing the changes over the past year with the ominous signs recognizable to all.  For 5778 years the Earth has been circling the Sun at 66,600 miles per hour, or 107,000 kilometers per hour if you use that system.  Most people will recognize 666 as an apocalyptic sign but be that as it may, it is also a deep Kabbalistic concept and the numerical value of 2/3. Rav Ashlag of blessed memory used that principle to determine the year of 5778 as the time of the geula (final redemption), and the Arizal hinted at its use to determine a specific date within the year 5778.  Equally significant is that the sum of the integers from 1 to 107 is also 5778 and that there are 107,000 letters in the Torah preceding the 10 Commandments, which were given in the 70th Chapter in the Torah, but that has already been written.

Since the beginning of consciousness, the biblical birth of Adam, the Earth has been hurtling through space at 66,600 miles per hour, and when it traveled exactly 1,666,666,666,666 miles, King David was born. 35 years later, at the midpoint in David’s 70-year lifespan, in the year 2889 HC, we reached exactly the midpoint to the year 5778.  Let that sink in for a moment, and connect to the journey that began with Adam, paused with David, and brought us to this fateful point in time. The ancient kabbalists told us that ADAM (אדם) stands for Adam-David-Moshiach(א–ד–ם).

After David, the Earth continued its journey and when it traveled a total of 3232323232323.2 miles around the Sun, the United States of America was formed. It was 1776 CE. Then 101010101010.1 miles later, the Earth reached a total of 3333333333333.3 miles and Israel became a nation. The year was 5708(1948 CE). Notably, the Archangel Michael, of gematria 101 is the guardian angel of Israel. This is more significant considering the Biblical and Zoharic prophecies of the 70 nations of the world gathering against Israel in the end-of-days, and the vicious anti-Semitic sentiments orchestrated by the Erev Rav and boiling up all over the world. These prophecies are thousands of years old and are relevant only now as Israel approached 70 years of nationhood.

The Earth continued circling the Sun at 66,600 mph and the planet started to heat up—what we call global warming.  This heating up over the last 70 years brought the average surface temperature of the Earth, to 57.78 degrees, in alignment with that of the surface of the Sun, 5778 K.

The Earth will continue circling the Sun we assume. The question is will we chose to keep riding it, or get off?  Which world will we choose to live in? It is no longer a matter of whether we will choose to go through the gates when they open, but whether they will even open for us. We have been given the tools to make that happen, eyes to see and ears to hear. We will discuss the key tools below and hopefully strengthen your beliefs for without them no tool can help you. After all, our souls have already had 5778 years to decide what they really want.

The Torah scroll is arranged into 42 rows and 248 columns, and all the columns, except for 6 specific ones, begin with the letter Vav (ו) of numerical value 6, as in the 6th millennium when most of the Jewish prophecies called for Moshiach’s arrival.  The number 248 is the numerical value of Abraham(אברהם), whose letters permute to Reah MB (ראה–מב) or “See the 42.” This arrangement of the Torah with its focus on 42, as in 42-Letter Name of G-d, is crucial for us in these final days.

These 6 letters at the heads of their respective columns spell out B’YH Shmo (ביה–שמו) and they have the numerical value 363 along with an ordinal value of 57. Both these values are the exact same as H’Moshiach (המשיח), the Messiah. Neither the Torah, nor G-d’s messages in it are mbiguous.  What matters is if we are ready to receive them. If the other 242 columns seem to point to H’Moshiach it must be noted that they can also represent the 242 years from when the 13 colonies of the United States became a nation in 1776 CE to the year 2018 CE (5778), this year. The complete gematria value of B’YH Shmo is thus 363 plus 57 or 422 when The Divine Calendarthe kolel of 2 is added for the 2 parts of the equation, and as noted in The Divine Calendar, 422 is the numerical value of the word for 70, specifically as in 70 CE when the Second Holy Temple was destroyed.  We make this connection because the year -422 BCE is also when the First Holy Temple was destroyed, in 3338 HC, and because 5778 x .5778 = 3338.  There are no coincidences, only choices. The divine intent is unambiguous. We were given eyes to see; what we choose to look at is our choice, and ours alone. In truth, we judge only ourselves. Our fate is entirely dependent on the choices we make. Hopefully, the revelations herein enclosed will make those choices clearer.

Just before Rosh Chodesh Elul this year, when the final month of teshuva (repentance) began before 5778, the moon equaled the Sun and a 70-mile wide swath of darkness divided the United States in two. Thanks to the pervasive efforts of the Even Rav, the US has become the most divided, divisive place on the planet, split in two, literally and figuratively.  This occurrence, witnessed by millions, fulfills the prophecy based on the Zohar that in the days of Mashiach the moon (malchut) would equal the Sun (Zeir Anpin) and so it has, for a few hours at least, when the entire country, so recently fixated on hatred and anarchy, focused on the darkness and cheered.  That dark band divided the country into North and South for the second time in US history.  More recently, the South has been under siege and not just from those anarchistic forces of evil who are pulling down all symbols of its past, but by powerful elements of nature (Elohim). Three very powerful and unprecedented hurricanes surged forth from the Atlantic, whose initials in Hebrew (חיה) spelled (Chayah), or beast in English.  The gematria of Harvey (הרוי) is that of the Hebrew word “the judgement” and the gematria of Irma (יארמה) is that of “from judgement” while that of Jose (חוזה) is the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).  The letters of Irma and Harvey permute to spell in Hebrew “the ten curses,” while the letters in Jose count down 8…7…6…5. And then there was Maria…

We should pray for G-d’s will to be done mercifully and for mankind to suddenly awaken before it is too late. This window in time will be temporary and we need to take advantage of it while we can.

This year, 5778, we complete 66.6 jubilee years since the giving of the Torah at My Sinai, which was the last opportunity we had for Moshiach consciousness in our world, the last time we touched Binah, a state of immortality and instate understanding. That time, we collectively rejected it. Binah is a spiritual sea where everything is instantaneously connected and these connections are openly understood by all who ride upon it.  The Earth has traveled a great distance in those 3330 years and G-d has expended great efforts on our behalf to align the worlds for us for the 3rd and possibly final time, at least for us.   The Zohar indicates that we needed to reach a critical mass of like and positive consciousness of 600,000 souls.  Alternately because of the two Shins (שש) of numerical value 300 each on the tefillin, we would have needed 100 minyanim with like and positive consciousness praying for Moshiach/ Binah consciousness and the unification of the Shechinah with Hashem. Instead, the majority of the population, including far too many Jews, have unwittingly succumbed to the negative influence of the Erev Rav, just as they did 3330 years ago with the golden calf.  These are the same people working so hard to divide the United States in two and create World War III.  So where does that leave us?

Barring a sudden shift in the common consciousness, we must make our  connections individually, and prepare ourselves to receive the gates . Besides the normal prayers, and besides studying Zohar as much as possible, there are three connections that can bring us closer to the docks of unification and help prepare our sails for the winds of Binah that soon approach. Caution though: nothing can prepare us for what is to come if we choose to ground ourselves in the lower world of malchut. That is the first choice we must make.  We have to want Moshiach and enlightenment over physicality and we have to want it with all our hearts, not as a hedge to our bets.  Before children reach the age of 5 they see many wondrous and scary things that we cannot. It is because they believe. If we do not believe something is not possible it will not be possible. It is as simple as that. If you want to connect to the spiritual realm you must first believe—truly believe—that it exists. Our eyes see what we let them see.  The Kabbalists describe our world as the world of illusion and Satan as the master illusionist.

The three places of intense connection to the spiritual realm, and specifically to Binah, are the Torah’s first verse of gematria 2701; the 42-Letter Name of G-d that stems from that verse, of gematria 3701, and the 1000 letters of the Shema that bridge the 1000 value gap between them, the 1000 chambers of Moshiach.  We have written about the Torah’s first verse and the 42-Letter Name extensively and will add even deeper connections for them soon. Today, it is imperative we bring out a deeper understanding of the Shema for everyone.  In this I am fulfilling a promise to Rav Brandwein of blessed memory to publish this enlightenment for the whole world.  This article is not meant to be a comprehensive analysis or explanation about the Shema prayer, which would fill volumes; it is meant to illuminate numerous highlights of the prayer have been previously concealed from the average student and are only now being revealed because the darkness of our days necessitates it.

So why 1000? Kabbalistically, and as a matter of counting, 1000 represents completion, just as in the complete Tree-of-Life that has 10 sefirot (dimensions) subdivided into 10 sub-sefirot and those in turn into 10 additional sub-sefirot or 10 x 10 x 10. Notably, when we descend these dimensions by 10% each iteration, 1000 units requires 22 diminutions of 10% each to get to 100, as in the 22 Hebrew Letters, or as Abraham described them in the Sefer Yetzirah, the 22 cubic building blocks, and also as in the 22 paths that connect the sefirot in the Tree-of-Life.  Please note the science used by the ancient kabblaists may have been divinely given but it is no less accurate or precise than our modern physics, which also divides our existence into 10 dimensions.

Therefore, there are 66 iterations in total when diminishing the light of 1000 to 100 to 10 to 1. The symmetry aside, those 1000 are as One (1) in that the Hebrew word for 1000 is elef (אלפ), which is exactly the same as alef (אלפ), the first Hebrew letter, of numerical value 1 (one).  In short, the alef (א) is Binah, a primordial existence that preceded the Bet of Bereshit in the Torah.  As a completeness, 1000 is also the end since Ketz (קץ), meaning “the end” of numerical value 1000, and spelled with the initials of North Korea in Hebrew (צפון–קראה).

First, it must be explained that we inhabit a 3-dimensional world and that as the Zohar enlightens, the most basic shape in our world is the cube, which is why the 1000 letters of the Shema form a cube of 10 by 10 by 10, or 103.  When that cube expands to connect with the 50 gates of Binah in the 4th dimension it forms a hypercube, which because of math and physics has 42 faces and 72 vertices and 72 edges.  This is why the 4 paragraphs of the Shema have 50 letters in first 2 verses, 42 words in the first paragraph, 72 words in the second, 50 words in the third, and 72 in the fourth.  This is hard to visualize and we need not be able to do it. We should, though, connect the 42 words and the 72 words to 42-Letter Name and 72 Triplet Names of G-d respectively, and we should use the entire prayer to elevate our consciousness toward Binah. Each Name and letter is a portal or port in the sea of Binah.  It is not a coincidence that Sea, Yam (ים) has the numerical value of 50, just as it is no coincidence that there are 50 years in a jubilee year, which we were told to start counting exactly 3330 years ago. This time we are all captains of our own ships, and if we do not unfurl our sails in time no one will do it for us.

What is described above in 4-dimensions is what our sails look like unfurled. It is invisible to us at the moment, yet we can and should use the Shema in its condensed 4 paragraph form which we can see in order to harness all that spiritual energy and open ourselves up to that spiritual existence beyond.    See with your eyes and hear with your ears.  See the MB (42-Letter Name). Hear the Shema,

The Zohar in Ki Tetze further explains that in the end of days, we will strike, Samuel, the evil minister of the Erev Rav 50 times, corresponding to the ordinal value in the 3 letters of the first word in the shema (שמע) and that we would strike out the wickedness from within us at the limit of 39 times, as in the value and also the ordinal value of the last two words (אחד  יהוה) of that same first verse of the shema. The Zohar relates those 50 strikings (beatings) of Samuel to the 50 letters in that verse combined with the silent Baruch Shem verse that follows it.  When we recite the Shema with the right intentions we can beat away our accumulated negative klippot that block out the light that G-d so wants us to receive.  This is a precious gift given that our world is so thick with negativity. We need to use it, not forsake it.

The same Zohar passage continues explaining that Adam, Eve, the serpent, and the land each received 10 strikes.  This is akin to the four letter Yuds(י) in the four central words of the Shema’s first verse

(יהוה אלהינו  יהוה ישראל ) with each of the 4 (ד) letters Yud(י) having the numerical value of 10. Indeed, like the mezuzot on our doorposts, the Name of protection, Shadai (שדי) is embedded in that verse.

שדי

We should keep all this in mind every time we do the Shema, along with the fact that the first and last words of that verse (שמע) and (אחד) together have the numerical value of 424, Moshiach Ben David.  As the Erev Rav does everything in their vast powers to prevent this unification we must unify ourselves by making these selfless connections in the name of bringing Moshiach Ben David into our world, which is why G-d placed these connections with the Shema, the prayer of unification.

G-d hid even more treasures for us within this first verse.  The first four words of the Shema (אלהינו יהוה ישראל שמע) have the complete gematria value of 1215, which we know from Rav Abulafia is that of “70 Nations” and “permutation of the letters.”  It is also the value of the word Tikune (karma) and of Va-etchanan, the key word that indicates how many times Moses beseeched G-d to let him enter the Promised Land and thus end our Tikune and bring about Binah. Normally, Va-etchanan is considered without its sofit value and thus only 515, representative of tefila (prayer) and the 515 hours from Rosh Hashannah to Hoshannah Raba.  Many of the tzaddikim today think this Hoshannah Raba marks the time of the profound shift.  When concentrating on the first four words of the Shema (אלהינו יהוה ישראל שמע) we too are beseeching G-d to help us overcome our tikkune and our global tikkune, using the Hebrew letters to unite us as channels for the 70 nations of the world.  This is also one of the reasons the word Shema שמע is written in the Torah with an enlarged letter Ayin (ע) of numerical value 70. We know from the Zohar that all the enlarged letters in the Torah connect us to Binah, including the enlarged dalet (ד) of echad (אחד) that the Zohar instructs us to elongate its pronunciation significantly as we mediate on the 4 exiles merging into one and ending now with Moshiach Ben David.

G-d always builds redundancy into everything that is important to us because it is known that we are stiff necked and need to see things repeatedly before we realize things are not coincidental. That is why we did not get it the first time and were thrown out of Gan Eden. That is why we did not get it the second time, and rejected G-d’s voice on the eve of the 50th Gate in 2448, after 49 jubilee years. That is why it has taken 66.6 more jubilee years to prepare us.  The milui or spelled out value of the two letters Ayin (ע) and dalet (ד) plus the kolel of 1 for their unification is also 1215.

The Zohar explains that Moses was the Sun and he set into the stillness of the night to let Joshua shine as the Moon. It further explains that in the end of days, Moses, as the Sun, will rise to help redeem us.  With the sign of the eclipse, the Sun regains its rightful place.  Rabbi Shimon tells us that Moses is the Leviathan that swims in the Sea of Binah. The first four words of the Shema also equal the value of Leviathan (לויתן) and the first 4 letters of Leviathan (לויתן) have an ordinal value of 50. During this profound connection, part of our kavanot should be to meditate on linking our consciousness with Moses, the Leviathan that swims in the Sea, represented by the 50 letters of the unified Shema and Baruch Shem, Zeir Anpin with Malchut.

The final two words of the first verse (אחד  יהוה) have the complete gematria of 78, which as Rav Brandwein explained to me many years ago is symbolized in the initials of Etz Chaim (עץ–חיים), the Tree-of-Life, the consciousness of which we have the ability to achieve this year, in 5778, when the Gates will open for us for the first time in 3330 years. Those two words (אחד  יהוה) Meaning G-d is One echo throughout the next 4 paragraphs.  The Zohar explains that the letter Vav (ו) of numerical value 6 represents Zeir Anpin and the expansion of space in 6 directions, which is why there are 6 letters in each line of the 42-Letter Name matrix.  In the 50 letters of the first verse and Baruch Shem of the Shema there is only 1 word beginning with the letter Vav (ו), V’ed (ועד). There are 13 words beginning with Vav (ו) out of the 42 words of the Shema’s first paragraph, and there are 42 words beginning with Vav (ו) in the Shema’s remaining 3 paragraphs.  Within the limitless technology built into the cubic Shema matrix, we have been given a formula of 1 – 13 – 42 to help unify us with G-d. Echad (אחד), One – Ahava (אהבה), love and Echad, One (אחד), each being of numerical value 13 – and the 42-Letter Name of G-d, the understanding of which Rav Brandwein explained would bring about the Geula (final redemption).

1 – 13 – 42

There are 599,592 or (600,000408) component letters in the Torah and the first word of the Shema’s four paragraphs, V’ahavta (ואהבת)meaning “and you shall love” has the numerical value of 408 with the prefix (ו). Moreover, 408 times 6, the numerical value of the letter Vav (ו) is 2448, the year the Torah was given to Moses, 3330 years ago, the last time the Tree-of-life reality was available to us. The message is clear: Love is the missing link; love and a desire for oneness with the Creator is what will overcome the hatred being spread by the Erev Rav and their ministering serpent throughout the world; love is what will unite us and connect us to Binah.  The four words that head up each of the 4 paragraphs, without their letter vav(ו) prefixes add up to 2019, the time when the window closes, and the upper and lower worlds will have separated once again. Being the beginning of the era of Binah, it is a time beyond the Zeir Anpin (ו).  Including the first verse, the 5 initial words of the 5 paragraphs the kolel add up to 2448, as in the year 2448, which was the last time that unity existed, albeit briefly.

The year 2448 was the time that 600,000 Jewish souls stood as One before G-d. Is it odd then, unbelievable perhaps, that the Log of 600,000 is 5.778Or that One over those 600,000 souls divided by the 70 members of Jacob’s family who entered Egypt, divided by the 12 tribes, divided by the 3 Patriarchs equals exactly 42.  This equation was given to us by the Arizal and shows us why the 42-Letter Name, also known as the Ana B’koach, is embedded into the Torah’s first verse: its power to unify us.

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

 

In VaEtchanan, just prior to the giving of the 10 Commandments and the verses of Shema Ysrael…, in Devarim 4:40 Moses states, “…Then you will endure a long time in the land that God your Lord is giving you for all time(כל–הימים) ,” and in the words “All time,” literally “all the days” we have kol(כל) with the numerical value of 50 and H’yamim (הימים) with the value of 666 including the kolel, which reveals to us once again the equation 50 x 66.6 = 3330 years.  Moses begins the verse with, “I am presenting to you today, so that He will be good to you and your children after you. Then you will endure for a long time in the land that God…” This phrase within the verse has the numerical value 5777, and is only one of 13 phrases in the Torah with that value.  As we know, the number 13 is the value of ahava (love) and Echad (one) and what we desperately need to cling to in these days.  It has been hinted at in so many ways how to count the days, all of them, and the years until Moshiach.

It is not just any love we need to embrace; it is unconditional love. The first paragraph of the Shema, the one with 42 words, begins with the letter Vav(ו) and ends with the letter Caf(כ), as do all 5 verses in this paragraph, as do the first 21 words in the paragraph and the second 21 words in the paragraph, as does the final word and 3 other words. The letter combination Vav-Caf(וך) is easily recognizable as that of 26 and the Tetragrammaton (יהוה), though arranged with the Caf(כ) in the sofit (final) position, its more appropriate value would be 506, which is not only the value of the first line of the 42-Letter Name matrix, but it is also the value of the words for unconditional love (Love for no reason) and it is the complete gematria value for Moshiach Ben David. And as mentioned in The Genesis Prayer, the 14 triplets in the 42-Letter Name are found exactly 506 times in the Torah. With the addition of one word that begins with Vav-Caf (וכ) there are 13 instances of this connection to unconditional love and Moshiach Ben David in the paragraph of 42. Do we really need any more redundancy? Can the message and equation 1 – 13 – 42 be any clearer? When the signs and the times get darker and people ask where is G-d, we must ask ourselves could He have tried to help us anymore, given us any simpler tools to connect with what is truly important: Love – Moshiach – Unity? If we are going to say the Shema twice a day, at least we should say it with the right intentions. If we are going to say the Ana B’koach within our prayers, at least let it elevate them properly. If you want an arrow to hit its target you must aim it—there is no other way. For 3330 years most of us have been releasing our arrows in empty fields.

To help us bring the unifying power of the Shema into our souls and the healing power of the Shema into our bodies we were given the 23 verses of the Shema, whose initials total 432, as in the 432 Hz frequency of Binah, which is the sum of two basic cubes of 63, which is simply the 2-dimensional or straight line Vav(ו) cubed, but we have covered that in previously articles. Moreover, it cannot be coincidental that the Earth circles the Sun at 66,600 mph and the cube of 6 x 6 x 6, which according to the Ramchal is equivalent to 1 Biblical cubit cubed, is the basic unit of space in our world. Nor is it coincidental that there are 216 or 6 x 6 x 6 letters in the 72 Names of G-d, which are derived from the 3 verses where the Red Sea parted. To stretch that thought, the two hurricanes that made landfall so devastatingly were both connected numerically to Gevurah (Judgement) through 216.  While 6x6x6 is 216, the equation 6+6+6 is 18, and when we raise Phi, the primordial constant that controls the spiraling growth in our universe to the power of 18, we get phi18 equals 5778.000

You may ask why it is important to tune into this exact frequency of 216 x 2 or more specifically, 432 Hz; after all, your cell phone works whether you understand the technology or not. The questions really are whether you want 1 bar or 4, 3G or 4G, static and dropped calls, or a clear channel to the upper world.

Like the 23 words in the Blessing of the Cohenim, these 23 verses align with the 23 chromosome pairs in our DNA in the same way that the 206 words of the Shema that are not in the first paragraph of 42, align with the 206 bones in our bodies. Another way we can tune into the 432 Hz frequency of Binah is when we recite blessings. We start most blessings with the word Baruch (blessed), whose sofit value is 708, as in the value of 42-Letters in the fully iterated Upper 42-Letter Name of G-d, the station hub above for clearing all the prayers and messages.  As the Arizal explains, no prayers get processed with the 42-Letter Names.  It is not coincidental the Israel became a nation in 5708. We follow Baruch with Atah Adonai (אתה–יהוה) whose numerical is 432.  Thus, with each blessing (ברוך‐אתה–יהוה) that we say, or that we say Amen to, we can connect directly and clearly to the spiritual Sea of Binah.

And speaking of Israel, the 6 words of the Shema’s first verse in normal gematria sum to 577 plus 541, the numerical value of the 2nd word in the verse, Israel, while the initials of all 6 letters with the kolel equal 333, as in the 3330 years to 5778, when Israel becomes 70 (ע) and the 4th (ד) exile ends. The final letters add up to 120, as in the lifespan of Moses, the redeemer. Once decoded by simple gematria, it is quite a story this verse is telling us, yet it means nothing if we do not listen to the message, which is why the verse states “Shema Ysrael (Hear O Israel…).” Many of us say the Shema two, three times a day, yet are we listening?

As the Earth circles the Sun at 66,600 for the last year in this era, we conclude the Shema prayer with its final word, “your G-d (אלהיכם)” of numerical value 666, and what do the four final letters of the four final words of the Shema sum to: 1215.  Eleichem (אלהיכם) has a complete gematria of 729, which is quite fitting for the last 6 letters of the 10 x 10 x 10 cube we call the Shema since 729 is 9³ or a cube of 9 x 9 x 9. The number 729 is also the value of the 2nd line of the 42-Letter Name(קרעשטן), which spells kara Satan or “tear out Satan,” the evil within us and amongst us, not a bad idea if we want to connect with Binah consciousness this year.

The Zohar describes the expansion of space from zero(0) dimensions to One (1) dimension, represented by the (vowel) point and by the Yud (י), and then the second dimension is the line, or Vav(ו). In the 3rd dimension the Vav(ו) expands to 6³ or 216 and the Yud (י) expands to 10³ or 1000. Together they add up to 1216, which is 1215 including the kolel of 1.  If we were to add + 10³ + 9³ plus 3 for the 3 components we would get 1948, as in the year Abraham was born (1948 HC) and as in the year Israel became a nation, 1948 CE (5708).  There is a definite structure to our universe, including our physical universe. Our space is ordered and defined and so is our time.

Rosh HaShannah is upon on, and the Arizal teaches us that this second line of the 42-Letter Name(קרעשטן) is the crucial element in the kavanot of the Shofar blowings.  Jews and like-minded souls of all degrees of faith and denominations will be praying at the same time.  Let us use our new knowledge to synchronize our prayers in unity for the coming of Moshiach and the ability to shift our consciousness from our physical world and desires to that of Binah, the World to Come.

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.

Why the year 2018? Look to the Beginning.

To find the secret of why 5778 HC or 2018 CE, we can look to the sky and see the sun lording over us, burning away at 5778 K, or look under our noses to the very first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, to the seed of creation.

First we should note that just as the tzaddikim were able to calculate 5778 based on iterations of 2/3 or 666 years, so too can we calculate the year 2018 CE.

2018 CE = (666 x 3) + (6.66 x 3)

The Hebrew letter alef (E) has a numerical value of 1 and when spelled out (ELP) it is equivalent to 111, so:

2018 CE = (111 x 6 x 3) + (111 x6.66 x 3/100) =

Hebrew Calligraphy
Image by Nir Tober via Flickr

111 x 18 + 111 x 18/100 =

alef x 18.18

Everyone knows 18 is the numerical value of Chai, life, but when we spell out the letter alef for 4 generations, we get

E

ELP

ELP LMD PE

ELP LMD PE, LMD, MM, DLT, PE, ELP

which equals 1 + 111 + 266 + 1046 = 1424, which breaks down to 1000 + 424, and we know 1000 is alef again as he word for 1000 is elef (ELP), spelled the same as alef (ELP), but more significant is that 424 is the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David.

But, if we substitute the value of Mem sofit for the standard mem (M) in the 4th iteration, the total value becomes 1984, and if we add the 33 letters in the 4 iterations we get 1984 + 33 = 2017 and we can choose to add the kolel of 1 and voila: 2018 CE.

We should note that 666 x 3 = 1998 and that the Jewish and Hebrew Calendars so divinely intertwined, as illustrated time and again in The Divine Calendar, align the same through their holidays (fall on the same dates) in 1998 and again in 2018.

Nevertheless, if we consider only the 1st 3 iterations as Rabbi Avraham Azulai of blessed memory instructed us to do in Chesed L’Avraham, and use the gematria sofit valuation, we get:

1 + 831 + 831 + 74 + 81 = 1818

as in 18.18 alefs = 2018 CE

and from There’s Nothing Random About the Universe, we know that Phi, the primordial mathematical constant that controls the natural spiraling growth from in the universe from our seashells to the Milky Way raised to the power of 18, or

Phi18 = 5778


Understanding the schematic of the universe and G-d’s designs is critical to understanding how we can breach the tree-of-life reality, how we can go from alef, the starting point to the finish line in a single leap of faith, without having to go through the grueling process. We’ll soon be learning how the Torah shows us that some of those in our past already did that, and how we are the souls of those who didn’t. Yet, we still can. That reality never changed, only our perception. For 66.6 jubilee years we had to earn the right again. Now it’s time. But we still have to learn how it’s done.

Now, if you recall that 5778 = the sum of all the positive integers through 107, and also that 5778 = 107 x 54, we should like to draw your attention to the fact that not only is the Torah divided in 54 parashot (portions) and this is the 18th Knesset of Israel, but 54 = 18 x 3 and also that 54 = 216/4 = (6 x 6 x 6)/4, making 5778 = 107 x (6 x 6 x 6)/4

We know that 216 is the numerical value of the sefira (dimension) of gevurah, representing the aspect of judgment, and also that 216 is representative of the 216 letters in the 72 Names used to split the Red (Endless) Sea, but 54, a sum of three 18‘s or nine 6‘s is also the paragraph in Exodus (Shmot/names) where we reach keter, the crowning, highest dimension, when we received the 10 Utterances (Commandments) from G-d, but that’s the topic of our next blog, when we last had the opportunity to really choose.

Why Are You Crying Out to Me?

The Book of Exodus in Hebrew is Shmot, Names, and that’s really all we need to know. In Shmot 14:15 G-d replies, “Why are you crying out to me? Mah Titzak Elai (MH TZAK ELY)?”

That’s what G-d replied to Moses and the Israelites when they stood at edge of the Endless Sea (Yam Sof) with the 600 Egyptian chariots at their backs. Not a very compassionate response, as would appear on the surface. Yet somehow Moses knew exactly what he was being told and what to do because moments later the sea split about and the Israelites were saved. So let’s see what G-d really said.

Mah Titzak Elai (MH TZAK ELY)?

To begin with the 4 letter word TZAK splits in two the Name ELHYM, Elohim, much as G-d split the Red Sea in two. All of a sudden, things are starting to make some sense, since Elohim is the Name of G-d that represents nature, or the natural cause and effect world where our actions cause a chain reaction of events and where once G-d sets things in motion, He doesn’t intervene, giving man the sense that he’s in control to a certain extent. This is the G-d that Pharaoh recognized, not YHVH or EHYH that Moses knew.

And certainly, Moses knew that the Mah in Mah Titzak Elai referred to the Tetragrammaton YHVH at the level of Mah, zeir anpin, and that this is the level the Israelites needed to be thinking in to outwit them.

And reinforcing that are the initials of Mah Titzak Elai (MH TZAK ELY) which spell Emet (EMT), truth, which is known to represent Torah, Tiferet (Zeir Anpin), and the 42 Letter Name, which begins with E (alef), ends in T (tav) an has 40 letters in between.

We know from the Zohar that Moses was given 173 keys to Heaven, and Heaven is Zeir Anpin and that the Shem Mem-Bet (42-Letter Name matrix) is both Zeir Anpin and can control it, and that the small gematria value of the 42 Letters is 173, so we know Moses knew all about the Name engraved on his staff and how to use all the letter combinations on it. So let’s look at that Name for a moment and see what Moses saw in his hands:

ZTY GBE

NTtSh ARK

ShCY DGN

GTZ RTtB

ANTt BKCh

KTzP LGY

TYZ VKSh

The very last column of the 42-letter matrix has all 4 letters of Titzak (TZAK) in it, and the full sofit value of this column is 2480, the same as the sum of the 5 Names of the 5 Books of Moses, or 10 x 248, the gematria value of Abraham and also of Rachum (compassion/mercy).

And the 3 letters not utilized, Shin (Sh), nun(N), and gimmel (G), the 3 letters of Goshen (GoshNah, GShNH), where the Israelites lived while in Egypt, and when we add 5 (corresponding to the letter hey, H) for the 5 letters in Elohim we get both the full name (GoshNah, GShNH) which as we’ve pointed out in a previous blog adds up to 358, Moshiach, and to the 4 letters on the Channukah dreidel.

But what Moses also saw as he looked at the first 2 lines in the 42 letter Names was:

ZTY GBE

NTtSh ARK

He saw the word TZAK spelled out before him with an added Resh (R) in between. And he knew not only knew that Resh (R) has the numerical value of 200, as in the simple progressive iteration of the Name Elohim (E, EL, ELH, ELHY, ELHYM), but there were 9 letters in G-d question Mah Titzak Alai? And there are 9 letters through EBG YTZ KRA, with the remaining 5 letters adding up to 216 as in the 216 letters of the 72 Names (triplets) that were also engraved on Moses’ staff and that according to the Zohar he called upon to help split the endless sea.

Before we explore what else Moses saw in G-d’s words, we should note that we can be sure Moses made these self-same connections because according to the Arizal, the 4th plague, the horde (Arov) corresponding to the sefira of Netzach (Victory) has the numerical value of 272 and is similarly broken down to the same iteration of Elohim (200) and to 72, in order to overcome the evil at that level.

And that it is no coincidence that the 72 Names (triplets) are derived from combining the three 72 letter consecutive verses found 4 verses after G-d’s reply to Moses in Exodus 14:19-21 or that 14+14+14 = 42 either. Or that these are the very 3 verses that describe the actual splitting.

Nevertheless, Moses, who insisted Joseph’s bones be at his side would have also known that through the end of the Book of Genesis the Name Elohim was mentioned 156 times, corresponding to the numerical value of Joseph, leaving 72 more times through the end of the Torah, including 42 times between Genesis and Deuteronomy, the Book he scribed himself, for a total of 228 times, corresponding to the numerical value of Etz Chaim, the Tree-of-Life, and of baruch, blessed.

So there we have 3 of the 4 elements Moses used to split the sea all neatly laid out for him by G-d, just as it is today for us: Joseph bones (or righteousness), the 72 Names and the 42-Letter Name. And the 4th element is also hidden within this Elohim schematic.

Since the 42 Elohims are contained within the 72 Elohims after Genesis and Joseph, we are not only left with 30 in Deuteronomy (Mose’s portion so to speak), but we’re given a hint to look within the 72 Names for the Mem-Bet (42-Letter Name).

And sure enough 5 (corresponding to the 5 letters of Elohim) of the 72 Names contain the letters Mem-Bet (MB): the 14th, MBH; the 55th, MBH; the 61st, VMB; the 65th, DMB; and the 70th, YBM. And this tells us a lot.

The value of the 5 names together is 240, that of Amelak (the endless scourge of the Jews) and the numerical value of the word doubt, which is exactly what the Israelites needed to overcome to reality the state of the tree-of-life reality necessary to split the sea. The 4th element was certainty. Not only did they, and do we, need the tools and the knowledge how to use them, but the certainty that they will work for us, that the Red Seas and obstacles in our lives are just illusions waiting for us to see beyond.

Moreover, the 5 letters in the 5 Names MBH, MBH, VMB, DMB; and YBM that were included with the MB’s, spelled YHVDH (Yehuda) of numerical value 30, as in the 30 times Elohim is mentioned in the 5th Book, the Book associated with the sefira (dimension) of malchut (kingdom) and manifestation, and the 42 times the simple name YHVDH (Yehuda), also associated with Malchut and manifestation, appears in the Torah.

So when G-d answered him “Don’t cry out to me” He was telling Moses that you have all the tools in your hands to do it yourself and Moses knew what he needed to do to manifest the tree-of-life reality and split the endless sea when he followed G-d Subsequent instruction to stretch out his staff over the sea.

And if we could see all that Moses saw, we’d also see that he knew he could use the first 9 letters of the 42-letter (Shem Mem-Bet, Ana B’koach) in a novel way (as illustrated and explained in depth in The Genesis Prayer) to create that split by dividing the number 9 by the small gematria version of those 9 letters = 9/.123049027 = 73.141595779 = 70 + PI (the mathematical constant that defines the physical structure of the 3 dimensions, by bending straight lines into circles), with the number 70 corresponding to the 70 branches of the tree-of-life.

And if you think this is preposterous, you really need to read There’s Nothing Random about the Universe; but nevertheless, note that the 5 location of those 5 Mem-Bet Names within the 72 Names (14, 55, 61, 65 and 70) add up to 265, which, as described in that book and in The Divine Calendar, is the 3rd triplet in Pi: 314159265358; the 4th triplet being 358, Mashiach; the 1st being 314, Shadai, the 2nd being the small gematria value of the 42-letters of the upper 42-Letter Name. Moreover, the sum of the two middle triplets is 159+265=424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David.

And as you ponder the endless sea (Ym Sof) that begins with 3.1415..keep in mind the 3 verses of 72 letters and that G-d’s encrypted reply to Moses and the Israelites was found in Shmot 14:15.

And the 5 Names within the 72 tie into Joseph’s bones as well.

If we multiply the numerical values of each of the 5 Mem-Bet Names within the 72 Names by their ordinal location within the 72 Names and take the square root of their sum, we get 113.1415… = 110 + Pi, in other words a reference to the 110 years of Joseph’s Life and the mathematical constant Pi again, and actually to G-d’s powerful 3 words at Shmot 14:15.

Moreover, the sum of those 5 names with their ordinal place within the 72 Names was 240+265 = 505, the numerical value of Sarah, the Matriarch, which Moses knew and which we’ve previously have shown in other blogs to be connected to H’Moshiach (the Messiah).

And Moses saw himself.  The numerical value of those 5 Names is 240 and their ordinal value of the 15 letters in the 5 Names is 105, so that 240 + 105 = 345, the numerical value of the Name Moses (Moshe, MShH), the same as the 5th of the 72 names, MHSh.

The 5 names are the 5 pronged crown of the 72, containing the 5 Mem-Bets and within Yehuda (YHDVH), the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).  And from Yehuda descended King David (David H’Melech) and thus Mashiach Ben David, whose arrival we hope to bring about through the proper understanding of these Names and the splitting of our own Red Seas.

In Shmot 15:6 during the “Song of the Sea” and alluding to Joseph of numerical value 156, it says “Your right, Hashem, is glorious in power; Your right hand, Hashem, has dashed the enemy in pieces.” The Zohar explains that the hand refers to the 5 fingers/sefirot (Chesed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach and Hod) and Joseph corresponds to Yesod, completing the 6 sefirot/dimensions of Zeir Anpin, hinted at in the phrase Ma Titzak Elai (Why are you crying our to me?)

But, hey, that’s just what Moses saw, why should we want to see the same thing?

Because when we find ourselves crying out to Heaven and to G-d, and he answers us “Why are you crying out to me?” we’d better be ready to understand all the wisdom and love that he’s packed into that answer for us. Otherwise, we’ll be stuck between the Egyptians and the sea.

G-d wasn’t just talking to Moses, or his generation. He was talking to us. It’s time we carefully learn about the tools and build up our certainty. We’re going to need them.

If you examine the 72 Names array of 8 columns and 9 rows carefully you’ll see that there are only two Names that contain side by side triple crowns (tagins), one is at column 5, row 7, and the other at column 7, row 8: 577, yet another on hundreds of connections to the year 5778 that the tzaddikim prophesied for the arrival of Mashiach, 66.6 jubilee (Biblical 50-year interval) years after the splitting of the Red Sea in 2448.

Today, we are in the year 2009 CE, 5769 HC, with 9 years to go you do the math, especially since the numerical sum of those 4 letters in Titzak (TZAK)
plus 5 for the 5 other letters that spelled Elohim and 1 for the kolel = 666.

Also, for what it’s worth the sum of the gematria atbash values for the 9 letters is 577 as in 5778.
