The 8th Day of Chanukah; All the Lights are Lit.

The 8th Day of Chanukah; All the Lights are Lit.

Today is the 8th day of Chanukah, Zot Hanukkah, and the Zohar advises us that whenever we see the word Zot in the Torah, it’s a connection to the end of days, the finale redemption, which we know is really just the beginning or the Tree-of-life reality. Today is the day, all 44 physical lights are lit and blood (DM of value 44) of the judgments (m’damei of value 89, same as Chanukah) are removed. It’s also when all 156 lower spiritual lights are lit, connection us to Zion(of value 156), the point above Jerusalem where all the spiritual energy enters our world, the point also vaguely concealed in the middle of the last (malchut) line of the Ana B’koach (42-letter Name).  It’s also the day when ALL 314 (upper and lower) spiritual lights are revealed connecting us Metatron (314), who opens the gates for us this day. (See Chanukah meditations for how the candles lights remain lit and thus sum to these numbers)

It’s no coincidence the numerical value 156 is found 107 times in the Tanakh, as the sum of all the integers through 107 is 5778, the date given by the tzaddikim for the advent of the tree-of-life reality in our world.

We’ve just finished reading the 8 days of the special Chankuah Torah portions 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 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 (the evil inclination) and 359 is also Mashiach in Aramaic, the language of the Zohar.

It’s common that the numerical values represent of 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. So adding them up, reveals that (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, 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.

Nevertheless, 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 the spiritual tenet that nothing is ever lost is repeated over and over again within the concept of the Chanukah light, 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, etc all the way through energy level 42.

As you recall, the Chanukah reading consists of 89 plus 4, or 93 verses, another allusion to 903. Moreover, the word Shekel is repeated 26 times during in the 93 verses of the full reading and is 26 the value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).

Furthermore, 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, or unimaginable to be more accurate.

As for the date for the arrival of Moshaich, 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, 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 more concrete evidence that ties the sacrifices much 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.  Their average value 5778 , as in the year 5778 HC (2018 CE).

Shekel B’Shekel H’Kodesh

((15 x 409)+(12×430)+(14×432))/3 – 3 (kolel) = 5778

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.”

As Volker just revealed to us in the comments to one of our recent blogs the number of verses in the Torah (5845) = the number of days in 16 years or (16 x 365.25 + 1) thus we have yet another deep connection between the Torah and 5778.

Could it be that we are to count 16 years from 9/11/01?

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. (See Nothing is Random in the Universe for detailed 2019 connection)

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, 42 (1 + 6 = 35) are either connected to the year 2017 (5777), 2018 (5778), or 2019 and another (16 + 41) = 57 times are specifically to 5778 through the repeated occurrences of shekel b’shekel h’kodesh.

57 More Times the Sacrifices Connect to5778 (2018)

shekel b’shekel h’kodesh

Let me be clear: There is no statistical possibility 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, yet another allusion to the mem-bet (42-Letter Name) as described above.

What’s the message?

We now know what to connect to on Chanukah and as we light the candles, but it may be that we’ll have to make sacrifices. But is that a strange concept?  As we’re about to write about the Erev Rav, is would anyone not be willing to make sacrifice to bring Mashiach (the Messiah) and the Tree-of-life reality, and live a life with limitations.

By the way, 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 indeed 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.

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.

Happy Chanukah to All!

Chanukah Sameach!

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.

Sarah Lives Continued: There’s Much more than meets the eye.

In a very simplified recap, we’ve linked the verse Bereshit 21:1 and the keeping of G-d’s promise to Abraham and Sarah, and the birth of Isaac to the coming of H’Mashiach (the Messiah) in 5778 (2018 CE) and to the Ari, Rabbi Isaac Luria, (of numerical value 211) and then we’ve linked Bereshit 23:1 to the coming of H’Mashiach in 5778 (2018 CE) and to the Ari again. Now, let’s take it further, much further.

While we saw that the phrases “The Ari lives” and “The Messiah Lives” are connected to Bereshit 23:1 and to the phrase “Sarah Lives” there are two more verses connected to this 5th portion that link with one another and bring further clarity to the generational chain of H’Mashiach, two more pieces of the puzzle if you will. They are Bereshit 24:1 and 1 Kings (Malachim) 1:1, both of which begin with the key phrases “coming with the days” commonly translated at “old age.” But “coming with the days” is a definite reference to for those that understand. Bereshit 24:1 is talking about Abraham and 1 Kings 1:1, which is from the Haftorah portion associated and read with Chayei Sarah, is about King David.

Bereshit 24:1 is the verse recited 3 times after the Hallel prayers: V’Abraham zaken Ba Bayamim V’adonai berach et Abraham bacol. “Abraham was old, well advanced in years and God had blessed Abraham with everything. We’ll show shortly how this is a continuation of the previous verse, which was also the first in its respective chapter, as are these two, and we’ll also show how they all refer to the end of days (advanced in years) and to G-d’s fulfillment of his promise, his Covenant with Abraham.

The first connection between this verse and Bereshit 23:1 is hinted at in the palindromic word VYHYV, which if your recall indicated a coming and going in two different directions and thus a doubling of Sarah’s 127 years, as in 127 x 2 = 254, which just happens to be the numerical value of V’Abraham, the first word in Bereshit 24:1. And if you recall from the posts about verse Bereshit 22:1 and 23:1, about how they reflected Moses’ 515 prayers for the Messianic age to come and moreover that that the 516th prayer would have ushered it in, thus finding that the numerical value of the 4 word phrase that begins Bereshit 24:1: V’ABRHM TzKN BE BYMYM, is 516 is quite significant.

The verse begins with 4 words phrase: V’ABRHM TzKN BE BYMYM, very similar to the verse in 1 Kings 1:1that begins V’H’Melech David TzKN BE BYMYM, substituting the name King David for that of Abraham, and just like V’ABRHM having the value of 254, or 2 x 127, the 3 letters in the word melech (MLC) King, spelled out, also have the value of (80 + 74 + 100) = 254 = 2 x 127. But we can really begin to see the connection when we notice that the phrase David H’Melech Chai (King David lives” has the numerical value of 127, as in the 127 years of Sarah’s life.

The first of the two similar verses that reflect the same thought, Bereshit 24:1 and 1 Kings 1:1, has 4 words and the second one has 5, together, 9 words, once again reflecting that theme of 9 that we saw when we were analyzing Sarah’s verse Bereshit 23:1. Since it takes two words to say “King David,” we see that while the first letters of the first 4 words of Abraham’s verse add up to 17, that of tov, good, the first letter of the first 3 words in King David’s verse add up to 17as well. This harks back to Creation when the Torah states that G-d made the Light and it was good (tov).

In case you haven’t realized yet, and I guarantee you have will by the time you finish this blog, the purpose of all this encryption is to lead us to David H’Melech (King David) and his connection to H’Mashiach. Even the 22 letters of the Hebrew Alef-bet say David H’Melech, loud and clear. The sum of the 22 letters is 1495, which visually and mathematically breaks down to 14 and 95, and 14 is the numerical value of David and 95 is the numerical value of H’Melech, thus the sum of the 22 letter represents David H’Melech.

Moreover, the various examples we have of specific words in the verses equating to 254 is more than just 127 x 2. Since the sum of the integers through 22, as in the 22 letters, is 253 and 254 is 1 more than 253, these specific words are all references to going above physicality, which is what both Abraham and King David did. This is also a hint as to what we must do both in order to see and understand all this, and to be able to see and understand what will happen in the time of H’Mashiach, “in the coming of days.” We must expand our minds, our vision, our loving kindness (chesed) beyond the physical, which means beyond ourselves, and our selfish natures. Just as we do every Elul leading up to Rosh Hashanah, but on a much grander scale, we must prepare ourselves for meeting and greeting the King.

Using the 3 Shanah (years) and the 3 linked verses and the multiple of 3 word combinations that keep leading us to astoundingly redundant messages as yet another clue, we can take another 3 word combination, such as the values of the two BYMYM from the two verses (Bereshit 24:1 and 1 King 1:1 plus the value of the word TzKN from those verse and add 2 for the kolel of the 2 verses and we get 204 + 157 + 2 = 363, the numerical value of H’Mashiach, “The Messiah.” Even verse numbers themselves, Bereshit 24:1 + 1 Kings 1:1 plus 6 for the kolel of the 6 digits = 241 + 111 + 6 = 358, the numerical value of Mashiach.

While the word V’Abraham from, Bereshit 24:1 has the numerical value sofit of 814, the same as the verse Vayikra 19:18 paraphrased as Love thy neighbor…, the word V’H’Melech “And the king,” referring to King David from verse 1 Kings 1:1, has the numerical value of 101, which is the same as the gematria atbash of Shanah (ShNH), year, from verse Genesis 23:1. And 101 is the same numerical value as the cyclical ordinal value of the 3 Mothers (E, Sh,M), and is also the simple gematria of Michael, the archangel, protector of Israel, whose numerical value of 541 is the cyclical ordinal value of the 7 Doubles (B,G,D,C,P,R,T) as revealed in the Sefer Yetzirah and as will be explained soon in another post to this blog.

But more germane to our current analysis is that the ordinal value of Sarah, Abraham, and David is 46+41+14 = 101, as well. And their numerical value, including the kolel for the 11 letters in their 3 names is 505 +248 + 14 + 11 = 778, as in 5778.

And since the first word of Bereshit 24:1, V’Abraham and the first word of 1 Kings 1:1 together have the numerical value of 254 + 101 = 355, that of Shanah (year) and/or sefira (dimension), so what better link to Sarah’s verse in Bereshit 23:1 can we ask for?

Except that when we strip away the prefixes as we often do when trying to find the essence of the matter in the Torah, we see that the spelled out sofit values for the 3 letters of the 3 words from the 3 verses, Sarah, (ShRH), the EBR of Abraham, and Melech (MLC) plus the 24 letters in the spelled out versions of these 9 letters = 2635 + 996 + 1345 + 24 = 5000 exactly. And when we couple that with the equation just above, we get Sarah, Abraham and King David = 5778.

And just in case we think this is some colossal coincidence, please note that verse Bereshit 24:1 is divided down the middle into two phrases of 5 words each: V’Abraham zaken Ba Bayamim and V’adonai berach et Abraham bacol. The second phrase “God had blessed Abraham with everything,” has the numerical value of 1995 + 18 (letters) + 5 (words) = 2018. And since we know G-d made his Covenant with Abraham in 2018 HC, it must be telling us that Abraham will finally receive everything (His Promises fulfilled) in 2018 CE, 5778 HC.

But what of the second part of 1 Kings 1:1, which is also split to two 5 word segments (phrases)? That may be giving us another version of the end of days. “YYCSHV BBGTYM VLE YChM LV” translates to “he could not keep warm even when they put covers on him.” It’s a very cold, bleak, uncomforting end.” And since the first word in that phrase has a numerical value of 107 and begins and ends in vav, like the VHYHV that began Bereshit 23:1, and because all the integers from 1 to 107 add up to exactly 5778, we need to take this warning, this possible outcome, seriously. It’s not coincidence that there are 31 verses in 1 Kings 1, just as there are in Bereshit 1. And/or that there are 31 words in all 3 verses. It’s another beginning.

But how do we know these 3 verses are really meant to be connected and that they collectively connect to the end of days? The total standard gematria of the 3 verses is 5770, plus 8 for the 8 years that we’re told by chazal that H’Mashiach will have to pass through before the brit (covenant) can be achieved gives us 5778, and also a clue that the tzaddikim of blessed memory are probably correct. And the square root of the gematria sofit value for the 3 verses is 111.848, pointing us again to the Alef, and the unity of the three ones, or columns of the tree-of-life in the end and since 848 = 2 x 424, the value of Mashiach Ben David, it’s also pointing to the 2 heads once again.

Now, going back to the 3 Shanah’s (years) from the 2nd part of verse Bereshit 23:1, Sarah’s verse. When we spell out (ShNH, ShNH, ShNYM) using the mem sofit we get 2048, a reference to Abraham (248) no doubt, but more to the point, the 2048 is the year their son, Isaac was born.  Incidentally, Sarah died when he was 37, as in the value of the first word of that verse (VYHYV), which starts out “this is he life of Sarah.” Moreover, 2048 – 27 (letters) – 3 (words) = 2018 yet again.

Of course, simple gematria of the 3 Shanahs (years) gives us a value of 355 + 355 + 400 = 1110, or 10 x 111, the numerical value of the letter alef, and also elef, the word for 1000, thus 10 x 1000, which either way, translates to the keter (crown) or head of the 10 sefirot. And if we add the ordinal value (138) to it to get the complete value, we get 1110 + 138 = 1248, a simple allusion to 1000 (keter/elef/alef) and to Abraham (248). It should be very clear by now, that this sequence and these verses are telling us about the seed level of Mashiach, of the universe, and about both the beginning and the end of it all. And that sentiment is echoed in that the 3 Shanah sequence ends in Yud-mem, representing Keter of value 620.

And speaking of first words, the numerical value of the first word in each of these three verses, not only begins with vav, making 3 vavs, or 6 + 6 + 6 = 18, the value of chai, life, but they in simple gematria they are 101 + 254 + 37 = 392 and when we add the kolel of 16 for the 16 letters in the 3 words, we get 408 as in the 408 missing composite letters from the Torah, (600,000 – 408 letters).

Incidentally, the 231 in Genesis 23:1 can be said to relate to the 231 Gates of Wisdom discussed in the Sefer Yetzirah. Nevertheless, of the 12 words in the verse, Genesis 23:1, the two-word phrase Sarah Chayeh is repeated, not only emphasizing that the Torah is talking about someone beyond Sarah, someone yet to come, someone from her spiritual lineage. It also allows us to take note that when the kolel for the 6 letters in this phrase is added to its complete word value (normal and ordinal together) we get a total of 613, as in the 613 precepts delineated in the Torah, indicating we are talking about a complete tzaddik (righteous soul).

The word TzKN repeated in each of these 2 similar verses (24:1 and 1 Kings 1:1) has value of 157 so the value of both these words together is 157 x 2 = 314, that of Shaddai Mettatron, Pi, etc. This in itself is a hint to the 3 letters of David (DVD) that have a value of 14. And speaking of Pi, the letters Shin and yud that were both repeated 9 times in Bereshit 23:1 are not only completed with the letter dalet of David to form the Shin-dalet-yud of Shaddai, but they translate through gematria atbash to Mem and Bet as in the Shem Mem-bet, and as noted in The Genesis Prayer, when we divide the number 9 by the small gematria of the Shem Mem-Bet we get:

9/.123049027395534023292943802957033870306904 =

73.1415777

= 70 + 3.141577


The simple equation not only yields an impossibly precise approximation of the mathematical constant Pi, but also 5777, the year 2017 CE. It’s also coupled to the all-important Biblical time span of 70 (years), including David’s lifespan, and to the number 73, the value of Chochma, wisdom, the 9th sefira, but we’ll get into Pi and its connection to 5778 a little later.

Next, the words BE BYMYM common to both verses (23:1 and 1 Kings 1:1) contains two mem-bets each, signifying the upper and lower Names, meaning redemption, Pad (PD of numerical (42 + 42) value 84, and represented by the Eyheh Asher Eyheh “I am that I am,” also known as the two heads (RESh, a permutation of Asher), which fits with the twin numerical values of the two Yud-mems of the BYMYM. and the Bet (B) which signals 2, by its value (2)/ Meanwhile, the Alef of BE, is also a sign of head, as it’s the primordial letter that comes before the Bet of Bereshit, the physical first letter of the Torah, and it’s also the head of the alef-bet. Spelled out yud-mem has the numerical value of 100 and the second one has the sofit value of 620, both representative of keter, and thus the two heads, or crowns. This also is indicative of a crown at either end, at the beginning and at the end, though that is up to interpretation.

The other head is also Sarah, as the numerical value of 3 of the first 4 words of Bereshit 23:1 subtracting her name they total (VYHYV ShRH ChYY MEH) 37 + 28 + 46 = 111, which is that of the letter Alef.

The other two heads are Sarah’s spiritual lineage and Abraham’s, the two halves of the soul that came together with G-d’s blessing to make their spiritual seeds as numerous and as bright as the stars.

Nevertheless, the word BYMYM when spelled out has the value 412 + 100 + 100 = 612, as in the value of the word Brit, Covenant, so we know that the Torah is not fooling around when it mentions “the coming of days.”

There are many different types of gematria, (established encryption decoding systems, some more common, like sofit (final letters), katan (small), atbash (reverse alef-bet) and albam, (plus 11 or middle of alef-bet) and some are much more concealed and known only to a very few people today. but all are revelatory. Nevertheless, it should be cautioned that other than very basic gematria, none of the others should be utilized unless it has already been established that the particular subject that you’re examining has significant already proven spiritual relevance. In this way, you are not imposing your own creation, but rather stripping away the layers to reveal more and more about the spirit of the subject.

Since we’ve more than established the significance of Bereshit 23:1, and indeed the name Sarah, we can see that her name may contain additional encoded information. And while the name Sarah in gematria atbash (BGZ) has a numerical of 95 as in H’Melech, “the King,” in gematria albam it is 109 as in David H’Melech , “King David.” Moreover, the the first line of the 42-Letter Name (Shem Mem-Bet) which included that letters (BGZ) and which has the numerical value of 506 (one more that Sarah, 505) has the remaining letters (EYT) and if we convert these back using atbash as well, we get (EMT) which spells the word Emet, meaning truth, commonly thought of as Torah truth. Thus the the 42-Letter Name’s first line, whose value equates with that of the Hebrew word for “Unconditional Love,” translates to “Sarah Emet.” And thus both, thN Name Sarah and the 42-Letter Name, not insignificantly, connect to David H’Melech.

The sum of the atbash values for Abraham and Sarah is 898 plus the kolel for the 8 letters in their names gives us 906, as in the value of the last line of the 42-Letter Name again, and as the value of the words Et Sarah from the Bereshit 21:1 which began our sequence of posts on this subject. Moreover, as we shall see momentarily, 906 BCE is also the year David H’Melech was born.

In relation to the 3 different year parameters mentioned in Genesis 23:1, which we know from the Zohar relate to the different sets of sefirot, 100, 20 and 7 respectively, if we follow Abraham’s advise in the Sefer Yetzirah, we get (100 x 20) + (100 x 7) + (20 x 7) + (1 x 2 x 7) = 2854 and 2854 HC is the year King David was born.

There is no coincidence here. If you haven’t read it already. I suggest you check out the blog post titled “King David and the Messiah” and also the book The Divine Calendar, but a few highlight below will illustrate my point:

King David was born in 2854 HC

2 x 2854 HC = 5708 HC

Israel Received Statehood in 5708 HC

therefore

King David’s Birth marks the Mid-point to the Founding of Israel

5708 HC = 1948 CE

therefore

Israel Received Statehood in 1948 CE

2854 HC = 906 BCE

2854906 = 1948

2 x 906 BCE = 1812 BCE

1812 BCE = 1948 HC

Abraham was born in 1948 HC

therefore

Abraham was born in 1812 BCE

and therefore

King David was born at the Mid-point between Abraham’s birth and the year “0” CE

King David was born in 2854 HC

King David died in 2924 HC

therefore

King David lived 70 years

2854 + 2924 = 5778 HC

therefore

The Mid-point of King Davids life = 2889 HC

The Mid-point from Adam to Mashiach = 2889 HC

therefore

The Mid-point of King Davids life marks the Mid-point in the Time-lime to Mashiach

King David was born in 906 BCE

King David died in 836 BCE

906 + 836 = 1742 BCE

1742 BCE = 2018 HC

2018 HC = The Covenant of Abraham

2018 CE = 5778 HC

Pretty convincing!

Now regarding the 3 sets of years again (100, 20, and 7) the value of the word used for 100, (meah) is 46 and that of 20 (esrim) is 620, which we’ve stated perviously is keter, but 620 + 46 = 666. And while the sum of the values and ordinal values of 20 (esrim) and 7 (Sheva) together is 620 + 80 + 272 + 39 = 1111, the sums of the words used for 100, 20, and 7 collectively sum to 1038 and 138 for their simple and ordinal values respectively, once again indicating the 38 years of the Ari’s life that were even more specifically indicated in the previous posting.

Also in relation to King David, who lived 70 years, we should note that the numerical value of the Ari, 211, is half of 422, the numerical value of the word seventy 70. For many more connections to this and the First Temple’s destruction in 422 BCE and the Second Temple’s destruction in 70 CE, please see The Divine Calendar.

The gematria albam of the 3 interconnected names Abraham, Sarah and David including the kolel of 15 for the 15 letters in their names is 948 as in the 948 digit in Pi where the final series 5778185778 occurs, but to really understand that and to grasp its profound significance for us we must read There’s Nothing Random in the Universe.

Before we move on to the next clue the Torah gives us, I received an email from a reader Ron A who had made a profound finding:

וַ יִּהְיוּחַיֵּי שָׂרָה, מֵאָה
“I have just noticed, that if you take out the ‘VAV‘ of zeir anpin, Yihyu, Chayey Sara Meah, take the first letter of each word and you get ‘mashiach’…”

As stated in the last posting, verse Genesis 23:1 that gave rise to all the connections from Sarah to the incarnations of Mashiach (the messiah) is the 5th portion in the Torah and it is the 55th paragraph in the Torah so how perfect is it in the grand scheme of things that this verse contains the word Shanah, year, of numerical value 355, twice, 3 times when we consider the plural version, Shanim. Why perfect? Because we know from the Zohar that the value of Shanah (ShNH) is also that of sefira (dimension), as in the 10 Sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-life, and not only is 55 the sum of all the integers from 1 to 10, but 55 is also the 10th Fibonacci number (1,1,3,5,8,13,21,34,55…), a series of numbers integrally based on the mathematical constant Phi which controls the spiraling nature of the universe and is integrally linked to the year 5778, as explained in the except below. And you may have also noticed that the consecutive 3rd, 4th and 5th Fibonacci numbers spell out 358, the value of Mashiach, while, it just so happens, the numerical sequence found at the 10th digit in PI is also 358. And it’s also perfect because when we add the kolel of 3 for the 3 letters of the word Shanah (ShNH) we get 355 + 3 = 358, Mashiach.

And of further interest here is that that the first 5 Fibonacci numbers (1,1,3,5,8,13,21,34,55…) total 18, as in chai, lives and the 3 vavs (6,6,6), and as in its connection to 2018 and 5778 as will be explained below. Also, while the first 4 numbers add up to 10 (sefirot); the first 6 add up to 31, the value of El; and the first 7 add up to 52, the value of the Tetragrammaton YHVH at the level Ban, Malchut; and the first 8 add up to 86, the value of Elohim; the first 10 equal 230, as in Genesis Chapter 23, where all this about the 10 sefirot is revealed.

Nevertheless, As we explore the relationship of 55 and 505 and 555 to the Ari, of numerical value 211 and verse Genesis 2:11, to the year of the arrival of Moshiach, it’s worthwhile to note as discussed in There’s Nothing Random in the Universe in regards to the mathematical constant Pi that the ” Small Gematria Value of the 42-Letter Name = 173 and that at 173 digits after the decimal place in Pi we find the numerical string …2110555… and 2110555 = exactly 5778.28 Sidereal Years. Moreover, we know that this isn’t an odd, yet still pure coincidence because besides the 3 statistically impossible inclusions of 5778 (2018) and also of the following year 2019, there’s yet another numerical string within these first 1000 digits of Pi and that’s 737190, which in sidereal days equates to exactly 2018.28 years.”

This excerpt from There’s Nothing Random about the Universe helps explain the connection of Phi, the mathematical constant that controls the spiraling nature of the universe to the number 18, that of the 3 vavs (6,6,6) and of (ChY) Chai, as in Sarah, Chai, Mashiach Chai, David Chai. Moshe Chai, and the Ari Chai, all definitive connections we’ve seen linked to these verses (Bereshit 21:1, 23:1 and 24:1, and 1 KIngs 1:1):

Chapter 4

And that single unique number is 5778.

For some reason beyond explanation 5778 and Phi were designed to interact, and 5778 was made to stand alone within all the numbers in the known universe.

Why would this be possible?

Why it’s possible for a number to stand out so is difficult to say and maybe not for us to say at all. But we can explain a little bit about the mechanism and the why might get clearer as you get deeper into this book.

The next series of minor revelations may shed some light though on the process by which 5778 became so unique. When we divide 5778 by Phi raised to the power of 15, or Phi15, it equates to approximately 4.24, which is the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David, the Messiah, Son of David.

Then when we divide 5778 by Phi raised to the power of 16 we get Phi2, or written as an equation, 5778/Phi16 = 2.61803399 = Phi2.

Then when we divide 5778 by Phi raised to the power of 17 we get Phi, or written as an equation 5778/Phi17 = 1.61803399 = Phi.

And finally when we divide 5778 by Phi raised to the power of 18 we get 1, or written as an equation 5778/ Phi18 = 1.0000000…, representing a singularity, an absolute oneness.

Therefore Phi18 = 5778 and the square root of 18 = 4.242640, once again the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David, the Messiah, Son of David. And this time followed by the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton, 26.

We can begin to understand that there is a dynamic occurring here and that 5778 didn’t accidentally become unique. Regardless of how we want to read this, 5778, Phi and the number 18 are integrally and dramatically linked together.

It’s interesting that 17√5 and 19√5 bound 18√5 on both sides.[1] It’s the same with dividing 5778 by Phi raised to the power of 6 less 17, and also 19. In other words we get a resultant whole number to 3 decimals places or more when with the equation 5778/(Phi6 17), and also with 5778/(Phi6 19).

It’s as if the numerical universe were zeroing in on 18 and 5778.

And 5778/(Phi-1)18= 33385284= 57782

And as we learned in The Divine Calendar, 3338 was the year the First Temple was destroyed. This also means that (Phi-1)18 = 1/5778.

5778/ Phi18 = 1.0000000

Phi18 = 5778

√18 = 4.242640

5778/(Phi-1)18 = 57782

(Phi-1)18 = 1/5778

What Does Phi18 = 5778 Mean?

The equation Phi18 = 5778 simply means that 5778 is the 18th power of Phi. And as a derivative of Phi itself the number 5778 might be expected to work out to a whole number, or nearly a whole number, at some point.

But that doesn’t answer what the significance of 18 is, or why it had to equal 5778. And it certainly doesn’t explain why 5778 in the Hebrew calendar is 2018 in the Gregorian or Western calendar. Once again 5778 and 18 linked together.

If you’ve already read The Divine Calendar you already understand why that is and don’t believe the 18 in 2018 and in Phi18 = 5778 to be coincidental. As you read this book you’ll also come to know that it wasn’t.


5778 is the 18th Power of Phi

or

phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi = 5778

5778 HC = 2018 CE

Phi6 x Phi6 x Phi6 = 5778

6+6+6 = 18


[1] Five(5), but possibly more significant 17 and 19 are part of the exceedingly rare set of Mersenne primes, meaning that they satisfy the equation for being prime numbers such that Mn = 2n –1. They are the 6th and 7th Mersenne Primes, which is also probably significant as the dimensions of the 42-Letter name Matrix are 6 by 7, but that will be better understood in the course of this book. The prime number 67, the numerical value of the dimension of Binah (understanding), also connected to the 42-Letter Name, is another of the Mersenne Primes, a set of only 12 numbers up to n = 127, making M127 an enormously large number of 39 digits.

Head of the year; and understanding the Astrology of the Sefer Yetzirah, Abraham’s Book of Formation

The cosmos are ruled by the letters
G-d moves through the 12 palaces throughout the year, starting in Nissan (Aries), the 1st month
Each Palace is built with 7 revolving letters (blocks) (pe, resh, tav, bet, gimmel, dalet, caf) with always a specific one crowning it,
crowning letter:
Nissan, Aries: 1st Month: dalet
Iyar, Taurus: 2nd:month:pe
Gemini: 3rd month: resh
Tamuz, Cancer: 4th month: tav
Av, Leo: 5th month: caf
Elul, Virgo: 6th month: resh
Tishrei, Libra 7th month: pe
8th month: dalet
Sagittarius 9th month: gimmel
Aquarius: 10th month: bet
Capricorn: 11th month; bet
Adar, Pisces:12th month:gimmel
The numerical sum of the 7 letters, called doubles, is 2016, tantalizingly close to 2018, the year prophesied for the arrival of the Mashiach, the Messiah
The palaces are located around a circle and are divided into bands represented by the same crowning letters. When you put the months around the circle with Aquarius and Capricorn at the top (the winter solstice) and Cancer/Leo at the bottom, the banding becomes obvious
Bet—-Bet
Gimmel—Gimmel
Dalet———Dalet
Pe—————-Pe
Resh———Resh
Tav—-Caf
Interestingly, the months that pair off are the:
1st and 8th = 9
2nd and 7th = 9
3rd and 6th = 9
4th and 5th = 9
10th and 11th = 21
9th and 12th = 21
21-09
The total numerical value of all the letters in the Torah is 2109826 and there are 2109 gimmels (each of the value 3) in the Torah
The bands further combine to form bonding relationships, such as the bottom band having the value 420, or 10 x 42 (Mem-bet)
the Pe and Resh bands combine to form Pe-Resh (Bull) and its numerical value is 280, as in the value of the special 5 final letters that control/represent judgment.
the Pe and Dalet bands combine to form Pe-dalet (redemption) with the value 84, as in 2 x 42 (the two drops from above, the 42 letters in the Name of G-d)
etc
The value of each of the 12 palace rings is 709 which is analogous to the value (708) of the upper 42 letters of the Name of G-d, plus the kolel.
Ringing the palaces are the 12 sequential letters (blocks) he, vav, zayin chet. tet. yud, lamed, nun, samech, ayin, zadi, koof
These match up with the 12 months and their crowning letters
Nissan, Aries: 1st Month:       dalet-he
Iyar, Taurus: 2nd:month:         pe-vav
Gemini: 3rd month:               resh-zayin
Tamuz, Cancer: 4th month:     tav-chet
Av, Leo: 5th month:                 caf-tet
Elul, Virgo: 6th month:            resh-yud
Tishrei, Libra 7th month:          pe-lamed
Cheshvan, Scorpio: 8th month: dalet-nun
Sagittarius 9th month:           gimmel-samech
Aquarius: 10th month:             bet-ayin
Capricorn: 11th month;            bet-zadi
Adar, Pisces:12th month:      gimmel-koof
In the center of these rings is the revolving ring (ball) of the 3 mother letters (Aleph-Mem-Shin)
When the Aleph lines up with the Lamed and PE of the month of Tishrei, we get Aleph-Lamed-Pe (ALP) or Aleph, the first, which is why Rosh Hashannah, the head of the year is the 1st of Tishrei, technically the 7th month.
If we assume that the ring of 12 letters is actually 12 rings of 12 letters, connecting to the palace ring at 12 specific points then there are a total or 12 x 7 letters plus 12 x 12 letters plus 3 letters (blocks) or a total of 231 letters (blocks), which is analogous to the 231 gates of wisdom, which is the number of connecting lines drawn between 22 points on s circle. The total value of these letters is 14420.
