The 10 Plagues, Then and Now.

The Hidden Message in the 10 Plagues

It’s mandatory to celebrate Passover (Pesach) every year and recount the story of the exodus, including the explicit listing of the 10 plagues.  Why? Is it just so we don’t forget? Wouldn’t it be better to instead concentrate on the 10 miracles G-d performed for the Israelites on their way to receiving the 10 Commandments and the Torah?

A most common form of Torah analysis performed by the sages is to examine initials of key word groupings, phrases, or verses.  The sum of the nominal value of the initials in the 11 words that comprise the 10 plagues is 541, the numerical value of the name Israel, which is not only the last word in the Torah, but Israel was arguably formed out of the end of the exile immediately precipitated by the 10 plagues, especially the last plague, the killing of the firstborn, whose initials are Mem-Bet.

Mem-Bet is not only the  42-Letter Name of G-d, profoundly associated with the time of redemption, but it is named justly because it has the numerical value of 42, as in the 42 places the Israelites traveled through on their way out of Egypt to the Promised Land. It is also aligned with the journey every process must take through the 42 letters of the 11 sefirot.

The first letter of the 40 letters in the 10 plagues is dalet, with the numerical value of 4, as in the number of letters in Tetragrammaton and in the Name of G-d, Ehyeh, the Name used in “I am that I am.” The first plague, dam, blood, is spelled dalet-mem, which is numerically 4 plus 40 or 44.

The deeper secret is in the blood.   The first plague is Dam (Dalet-Mem), whose initial is dalet.  The initial of the last plague is Mem, thus the whole 10 plagues can be collapsed in abbreviated form into Dam (Dalet-Mem), the first plague. Not only does eth letter Mem, complete the word dam, but it in effect encompasses and represents the full 40 letters in the 10 plagues, because of its numerical value, 40.

Please note that that also means that there are an exact average of 40/10 or 4 letters per plague, the numerical value of Dalet.

We use the word encompasses because the final mem is not only shaped like a closed womb, but according to the sages it is supposed to represent one as well, and if we subtract the numerical value of dam (blood) from that of Da’at, the 11th and balancing sefira, we get 474 – 44 = 430, both the numerical value of nefesh, (the animalistic or lower part of the soul), which the sages tell us is housed in the blood, and also the number of years the Jews were in exile through the end of the 10 plagues.

Blood is also a fitting metaphor because from the womb flows both the blood of judgment unto the Egyptians, and the mercy to the Jews in the birth of the Israel.

We know from the sages that the Passover passage out of Egypt was about Da’at, the serifa of balance and knowledge, and also that Da’at was represented in the Dalet of Dam, the first letter of the first plague.   Furthermore, Dalet, when spelled out, has the numerical value of 434, while da’at has the numerical value of 474, leaving a difference of 40 between them, the numerical value of Mem, showing us that the full word dam, blood, is included in Da’at.

It’s all about Four (4)

While many of the significant mandated elements of Pesach (Passover) including the 4 questions, the 4 cups of wine, the 4 sons, the  4 aspects of the Tetragrammaton and the 4 letters in it and also in the name Eyheh, we been told by the sages that they correspond to the 4 exiles.

The first plague, blood, is spelled Dalet-Mem, with the first letter having the numerical value of 4, and the next letter having the value of 40, or 10 x 4.  Meanwhile, not only does the first letter of the last plague, the killing of the first born, also has the value of 40, but there are 40 letters in the 10 plagues, making 4 the exact average number of letters per plague.  And while the final letter of the 10 plagues is 400 or 10 X 40, the second plague, frogs, has a numerical value of 444, or 4 X 111, the numerical value of Aleph, the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet.

Moreover, the 4 letters of the Name Ehyeh, (EHYH)—the Name revealed to Moses just prior to the plagues–can be expanded through progressive method– sometimes called squaring–to  (E, EH, EHY, EHYH), which is numerically equivalent to 44, the same as dam, blood, the first plague.

The connection to 4 for Pesach and the 10 plagues at the end of the 1st exile is interesting because 10 is an extension both numerically and spiritually of 4. Numerically, the 4th triangular number has a value of 10, just as 10 is the sum of the first 4 integers, as in 1+2+3+4 = 10.

Spiritually, both the 4 letters of the Tetragrammaton and of the Name Eyheh when expanded by spelling them out have 10 letters each.   Moreover, as we mentioned earlier,  Passover is about da’at, which begins with the letter Dalet, of numerical value 4, while da’at is a sefira or dimension that combines the dimensions of Chochma and Binah, whose initials’ numerical values of 8 and 2 add up to 10.

So in a sense we see the 10 plagues extending throughout the 4 exiles, for a total of 40, as in the 40 letters in the 10 plagues, which is yet another reason it’s mandated we read the haggada and review all the plagues, etc every year throughout the various exiles.

The plagues didn’t just happen 66.6 jubilee years ago, they’ve been reoccurring continually throughout the 4 exiles in one form or another.   As for the first plague, dam, blood, there have been many times in these past 3330 years when tens and even hundreds of thousands have died and rivers of blood have flowed.

The 10 Plagues were Planned at the Beginning of Time.

While the 11 words of the 10 plagues correspond to the 11 unique letters in the first verse of the Torah, the first 4 letters of the Torah have an ordinal value of 44, the same as Dam, the first plague.

The next 2 letters, completing the entire first word of the Torah, Bereshit, “In the Beginning” have an ordinal value of 32, as in the value of the 4 components of the letter Aleph, connecting as we’ve discussed in other articles to the 32 Paths of Wisdom that define the structure of the universe and that house the 10 sefirot (dimensions).  When we add them together, we get numerically 76, or the fully expanded Tetragrammaton at the highest level of Av (chochma), but alphabetically they spell out Aleph-Dalet-Mem, or Adam(ELP).

Adam represents the start of Jewish soul, the source of which, as we’ve written about in other articles, is in the primordial Aleph that exists before the Torah, and dam, or blood, represents both the flesh and the flow of the lower soul (nefesh) throughout time, throughout the generations.

With Aleph as the source, we can note that the 11 initials of the 10 plagues have an ordinal value of 100 and if we add 11 as the kolel to 100 we get 111, the numerical value of the name of the letter Aleph(ELP). And once again we can connect with the primordial Aleph before the Dam (first plague) to get Adam

There is yet another analogy connection between the letter Aleph, whose 4 component letters (Y,V,V,Y) sum to 32, and the 10 plagues, and moreover to the initials of the final plague, Mem-Bet, as provided by Rabbi Chaim Vital of blessed Memory. The eminent sage explained that the 10 sefirot (dimensions) plus the 32 Paths of Wisdom that link them together form the structure of the greater universe and together they comprise the 42-Letters of the 42-Letter Name, the Shem Mem-Bet.

As explained in detail in The Genesis Prayer, the first verse of the Torah is where the Shem Mem-Bet, or the 42-Letter Name of G-d, is derived from, and if we take the sum of the numerical values of the initials of each of the 7 words of that first verse, which is 22—obviously representative of the 22 normal letters of the Hebrew alphabet—and add it to the ordinal value of those same 7 letters, which is also 22, we get 44, once again, the value of the first plague, dam, blood.

Incidentally, and again as discussed in detail in The Genesis Prayer, the first verse of the Torah is integrally connected in multiple ways to both the numerical value of Mashiach, the Messiah, 358 and to the mathematical constant PI to an astounding precision, and one of the simplest ways is through the average value of those 7 letters, 22/7 or 3.14.

Now, if we think this is coincidence we need only examine the full first 10 letters of the Torah and see that the sum of their ordinal values equals 100 (keter, the crowning highest dimension), the exact same 100 as the sum of the ordinal values of the initials of the 10 plagues.  Moreover, as mentioned earlier, the sum of the nominal value of those same initials is 541, the numerical value of the name Israel, the last word in the Torah.

The process of gematria computation allows us to subtract the kolel, as well as add it, and though I rarely use that approach, in this case if we subtract the sum of he ordinal values from the initials of the plagues (100) from the sum of their numerical values (541), we get 541 – 100 = 441, which is not only the numerical value of emet, truth, an allusion both to the Torah and to the 42-Letter Name of G-d, but it is also 212, or the square of the numerical value of the higher Name of G-d, Ehyeh.

Since the initials of the final plague are Mem-Bet and since the sum of all the initials of all 10 plagues (11 words) is 541, the numerical value of Israel, one interpretation is that the 10 plagues and 42 places lead to Israel.   Another is that it will take 10 plagues, corresponding to the 10 sefirot (dimensions) and the Mem-Bet to reach the final redemption.

The sum of the first 9 plagues is 499, the numerical value of Tzva’ot, another of the Biblical Names of G-d; therefore, yet another possible interpretation is that we need to go through 9 sefirot (chochma) and the utilize the Shem Mem-Bet to break through to the level of Keter.  The sages are quite clear that the 10 plagues correspond to the 10 sefirot and that the final one is at the level of keter(crown), but we can also see the word Keter (Caf-Tav-Reish) within the permutated letters of the final plague: Memcaf-tav   Betcaf-vav-reish-vav-tav Permutes to Tav-Vav, Caf-Vav,  Mem-Bet Caf-Tav-Reish.

Since Caf-Vav is 26 and an appellation of the Tetragrammaton, and since Tav-vav is the spelling of the last Hebrew letter, Tav, representing Malchut, which is our physical dimension, the lowest of the sefirot, we have the Tetragrammaton (26) and the Shem Mem-Bet helping us get from Malchut to Keter.

In addition, Mem-Bet Caf-Tav-Reish spells out Israel (YShREL) in gematria atbash (reverse alphabet cipher)

There are, of course, many deeper secrets and other possible interpretations here.

There are normally 41 letters in the 10 plagues with 41 being the number of letters in the name full Name Ehyeh spelled out, but In the Torah the word for beasts (or flies) is never spelled with the “vav” as it is in traditional Hebrew, leaving us with 40 letters.

The 11 Letters of the 10 Plagues and the Final Redemption

If we include the vav as is customary in most hagadahs, the sum of the 10 plagues using gematria sofit is 5546.  And 546 is not only the sum of the initials of the 10 sefirot, but moreover, 5546 + 232 = 5778, the year preordained for the manifestation of the Tree-of-life reality, with 232 being the sum of the 4 aspects of the Tetragrammaton.

As we’ve noted extensively in The Divine Calendar, the dates The Divine Calendarof the Exodus in 2448 HC, the Final Redemption in 5778 HC and the fulcrum point of the Gregorian Calendar in 3760 HC are all integrally connected and aligned, so it’s no surprise that the sum of the 10 plagues in standard gematria equals 3290, and when we add the ordinal value of the 40 letters in the 10 plagues, 468, we get 3290 + 468 + 2 (the kolel for the 2 elements of the equation) equals 3760, or 26.26 jubilee years after the Exodus.

Interestingly enough, the two initials of the last plague, the killing of the first born, are Mem and Bet and if we were to add the value of the missing vav (6) mentioned above to the 352 times that the initials Mem-Bet appears sequentially in the Torah, we’d get 352 + 6= 358, the numerical value of Mashiach, the Messiah.

Furthermore, if you sum up the square roots of each of the 10 plagues, utilizing gematria sofit, which gives special values to the special 5 final letters, and add the square root of 232 you get 314….

In one of the sage’s prophecies it says. “Like the days you left Egypt, I will show you wonders”.  This in reference to the final redemption.

According to the sages, Moses’ staff was engraved with both the Shem Mem-Bet (42-Letter Name) and the 72 Names of G-d, which are derived from the three consecutive 72 letter verses that narrate the crossing of the Red Sea (Sea of Reeds), were engraved on Moses’ staff and used in the splitting of the Sea.

Moreover, if we take the initials of the first and last plague together, we get Dalet-Mem-Bet, which is possibly connected to the 65th of the 72 Names of G-d: Dalet-Mem-Bet.

There are 11 unique letters in the first verse of the Torah, corresponding to the 11 spices of the Holy Temple and there are 11 first letters of the 10 plagues, which we can permute to spell out both the representative initials of the Shem Mem-Bet (the 42-letter Name) and the Ayin-Bet Shemot (the 72 Names) and more. These 11 letters can be permuted to form:

Echad (E,Ch,D)

Mem-bet (M,B)

Ayin-Bet (A,B)

Shaddai (Sh, D, Y)

Nun (N)

once the Tzaddi is broken into nun and yud. It’s said by the sages that in the time of Mashiach, the Messiah, the Tzaddi will split into Nun and Yud, then the Yud will change direction to facing forward) and then reconnect.

The significance of this is that they spell out Echad, One, as in “G-d is One;” Mem-Bet, as in the 42 Letter Name of G-d and the 42 places the Jews journeyed through on their way to Israel, and then Ayin-Bet, as in the 72 Names of G-d, both of which were used to split the Sea of Reeds according to chazal; and Shaddai, the Name of G-d that appears on all mezuzot and that starts of the mathematical constant Pi: and finally the letter Nun, whose numerical value is 50 as in the 50th Gate, which chazal say the Israelites were at before crossing the Sea of Reeds; also as in the 50 times the Exodus is mentioned in the Torah; as in the 50 days from the Exodus to the reception of the Torah at Mt. Sinai, as in the 50 component letters used to construct the 27 letters of the Hebrew alphabet; as in the length of the biblical jubilee year (50 calendar years) used to reckon the arrival of H’Mashiach, and as in the value of the Hebrew word for “Sea”.

In many senses the 10 plagues were a cleansing of the Jewish and world soul, the nefesh housed in the blood, in preparation for the reception of the Torah 50 days later.

The Hebrew year 5778, the year given as the year of the Final Redemption, is 2018 in the Western calendar and 50 years earlier, one jubilee year, was the year 1968, the year of Revolution.  It’s no coincidence the Beatles’ song Revolution came out that year.  1968 was the year the Vietcong launched the Tet Offensive and the world witnessed the My Lai Massacre; the year the Warsaw Pact invaded Czechoslovakia to crush the Prague Rebellion; the year of Black Power demonstrations in Howard University, the Mexico City Olympics, etc; the year of student protests in Poland and Germany and Tlatelolco Massacre of the students in Mexico; the year the French Governments was brought to the brink of revolution under siege by the student protests; the year of the Cantonsville Nine war protest and student war protests in universities all over the US;  The year the war protesters clashed with the Chicago police outside the Democratic National Convention; the year Martin Luther King was assassinated and the riots that followed; the year Robert F Kennedy was assassinated; the year Nixon became president; and the year the Gold Standard was legally dropped and the dollar decoupled from gold, sealing the fate of the US economy; and finally the year Saddam Hussein took power in Iraq, setting us up for where we are today, ironically (coincidentally) mired in yet another Vietnam.

32 Years before the 2000 millennium, the year of Revolution began the final jubilee year, the last of the 66.6 jubilee years from the Exodus to the Final Redemption, the last of the 40 jubilee years from 3760 (0 CE) to 5778.

The Secret Mountain holds all the Secrets of the Future Temple

There is a secret mountain of stone more precious than anyone ever realized. As previously advised the secret cubit to be utilized in the construction of the Future Temple (The Third Holy Temple) has been used before, thousands of years ago. It was concealed and persevered for thousands of years. It was even buried under sand for multiple millennia, yet it resurfaced a couple hundred years ago, and was only properly deciphered in the last 20, and completely hidden until today.

As you read the following article, keep in mind that Abraham Avinu went down to Egypt: Jacob and all his sons and family moved there; Joseph ruled over Egypt; and the Arizal grew up there. These were the most powerful tzaddiks, all of whom could easily control the weather, do you really think they were forced down there because of droughts and circumstances?

Yes, here we go with numbers again, but they represent energy and we need them to reveal the secrets hidden beneath them—think of them as symbols in a giant cosmic puzzle that we’re piecing together—and if they’re not your thing, just get a feel for the story they are telling, and let their spirit guide you to a further state of awe, as we draw back the veils on the tree-of-life reality.

As promised there is a monument made out of stone, actually an enormous one, and if it wasn’t built by G–d himself, as you will soon witness, it was certainly built with the dimensions He must have supplied. Like the Torah, it is precise beyond comprehension and certainly beyond the capabilities of man thousands of years ago. Yet, like the Torah, there it is for all to see and study.

This monumental monument is designed with 3 standard measurements: the inch, the foot and the ancient and future cubit (27.5 inches), as explained in our previous article regarding the Future Temple. It also has a few standard dimensions because of its special shape: its height, base (width), apothem, and perimeter of its base. And with those very few simple dimensions of wealth of beauty and ancient and modern knowledge was concealed, or shall we say preserved.

Let’s start with the standard measure of its base (width), which is 756.25 feet long. That’s long. It’s huge actually, but we’re more concerned for the moment on what it could mean. Hieroglyphics aren’t going to help us here. Fortunately, we have gematria, the same gematria used by our Patriarchs. And as it just so happens, the Hebrew letter Nun (N) in the more potent gematria milui (spelled-out) sofit version (spelled NVN) is 756. And reflecting on the letter Nun (N) we know that its ordinary value as a single letter is 50, which kabbalistically always represents the sefira (dimension) of Binah (understanding) and always refers to the 50-year jubilee cycle as designated in the Torah in the counting toward the arrival of Moshiach (the Messiah) and the geula (final redemption).

756 is also the gematria value of the Hebrew word for “the years of” (ShNVT), reinforcing this counting of years, and the ordinal value of the word is 63, that of Sag, the aspect of G-d’s Name assocaited with Binah and presented by the letter Samech-Gimmel, (SG) as in the two Hebrew letters Abraham advised us control the destiny of the month of Kislev (Sagittarius).

And similarly, the height of this monument is 481.25 feet high, not only towers 48 stories over the desert below, but matches up with the Hebrew word for year, Shanah (ShNH), which likewise when taken in its more potent gematria milui (spelled-out) value (ShYN NVN HY) gives us 481.

So while “year” and “50” seem to go together beautifully in the concept of the critical “jubilee year” concept, simple arithmetic gives us (756 – 481) = 275, which, if you recall from our article on the derivation of the ancient and future cubit, was the total value of the Tetragrammaton in its full form, encompassing all four aspects, which collectively totaled 232 + 39 letters + 4 Names = 275. And since 275/10 sefirot = 27.5, the secret measure of the Holy cubit, 27.5 inches, was dictated by the Holy Name of G-d itself. Please understand this well, for as the Ramchal explains, the four expansions of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) have such “great holiness [that] their power is limitless. All existence is bound to them from beginning to end.”

So we have this divine bond between 756 and 481, or alternatively between the letters Nun (50) and Shanah (years).

Please keep this connection in mind as we explore this monument that predates the Exodus from Egypt and has until now defied true understanding of its purpose and importance to all but a few tzaddikim.

We’ll call this monument Joseph’s ladder, or Joseph’s Pyramid and its name will become clearer as we analyze it further. The world knows it as the Great Pyramid of Cheops (Khufu), which has helped to conceal its true import—except to tourism of course—but all that will be explained soon enough.

If you’re wondering what this pyramid has to do with the Future Temple of Kabbalah, be patient.

As we said, the standard base measurement of the pyramid (actually the South base, since all four are slightly different, yet extremely precise for very specific reasons we’ll go into later), which is exactly 756.25 feet wide, and the exact height of the pyramid is precisely 481.25 feet tall. So yes, the basic measurements of the pyramid (756.25 – 481.25 = 275) give the exact dimension of the ancient and future cubit in terms of the Divine Name of G-d.

There’s so much more, but before we get deeper, let’s stop and examine closer the Hebrew letter Nun (NVN) spelled out and see that its gematria milui value (50+6+50) is 106 and that the 4 letter Nuns (NVN) that represent the 4 bases of the pyramid add up to 106 x 4 = 424, the exact numerical value of Moshiach Ben David (the Messiah).

The number 4, as in the 4 sides and the 4 letters in the Tetragramamton (YHVH), in Hebrew is represented by the letter dalet (D), and as we said, the number 50 is represented by the letter Nun (N). Together, they represent the combination DN, which Abraham, the Patriarch, informed us in his Sefer Yetzirah, are the letters that control the destiny of the month of Cheshvan (Scorpio) and moreover, they are directly connected with the revelation of Moshiach. But we’ll explain that in depth in a separate article.

Now, the 4 sides of this pyramid could very well represent the 4 Letters of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), after all the secret entrance to the pyramid was located 55 feet off the ground with a futuristic YHVH engraved over it—odd if an Egyptian pharaoh was the architect or builder, don’t you think—but the 4 sides could also represent the 4 exiles, starting with the one in Egypt that began with Joseph and lasted 210 years.

Now, there might be more to that than you think. Remember the height of the pyramid is 481.25 feet, the same as the gematria (481) of the Hebrew word for years, and 481.25 feet = 210 cubits, which is also the same as the exact number of levels of stone in the pyramid, 210.

Please note, that the number 210 in Hebrew counting is comprised of the letters, Resh (R) and Yud (Y), the two letters that Abraham Avinu advised controlled the destiny of the month of Elul (Virgo).

Obviously, the height of the pyramid could very well mark the 210 years of the Israelite exile in Egypt.

But the height of the pyramid may reveal something else as well, because 481.25 feet is also 5775 inches, or in terms of years, 5775 would be the year 2015 CE and 3 years shy of the date given to us by Rav Ashlag and marked by the Divine Calendar, etc for Moshiach and the geula: 5778. (See The Divine Calendar)

Of course, if you recall from our article on the derivation of the cubit, the measure of 27.5 inches can also be derived from the harmonic structure of the number 3 itself, so critical to the physical and spiritual structure of our universe, thus adding 3 to 5775 would not be out of hand.

For reference only: 3 = 27.5/10 + ((-1) (n-2) 27.5)/10(n+1) where n=1 , and therefore, 5778 = 210 * 27.5 + 27.5/10 + ((-1) (n-2) 27.5)/10(n+1) where n=1 .

The alternating harmonic convergence sequence in standard notation:

∑ x + (-1)n+1(x/10n)

n = 1

And if that doesn’t convince you—or at least numb you—please note that there was a capstone on the pyramid—long since missing—of 3 levels (cubits) in height, just as the 3 upper sefirot (are above) the other 7 bundled together. Moreover, without that separate capstone, depicted on the US dollar bill as a hovering eye above the truncated pyramid, the pyramid is only 207 level/cubits high and 207 is not only the numerical value of the Hebrew words for Light (Or) and Secret (Raz), but is comprised of the letters, Resh (R) and Tzion (Tz), the two letters that Abraham Avinu advised controlled the destiny of the month of Sivan (Gemini).

Also in conjunction with the number 3, that little .25 ft tagged onto the 481 and the 756 height and base measurements is exactly 3 inches.

But if you really think about it, the 210 cubit/levels in height and years only marks 1 of the 4 exiles, leaving 3 more to be defined to complete the prescribed 5778 years from Adam to Mashiach

The entrance to the Pyramid was originally hidden several feet behind a slick, steep, and thick limestone encasing and was 55 feet off the ground. That 55 is precisely 2 x 27.5 is yet another reference to Abraham’s description of the structure of the universe at the beginning of his Sefer Yetzirah in that 5 on one side, 5 on the other, unified, and split down the middle is a graphic way of illustrating the numerical expression 55/2 = 27.5

So to recap, the most basic measurements of the pyramid could not only have been concealing the exact measure of the cubit needed for the construction of the Third Temple, but indeed could be spelling out the end of the period of exile in 5778, much as it did 3330 years ago with the end of the 210 years of Egyptian exile.

This could all be conjecture, of course, but the 4 letter (NVN)s of the 4 bases did add up to 424, the numerical value of Mosiaich Ben David and the 4 bases in inches (9075) do form a perimeter of 36,300 inches with 363 being the numerical value of H’Moshiach (The Messiah), and also of the 6 odd letters (BYH ShMV) that begin 6 of the 248 columns of the Torah—the rest being all vavs of numerical value 6—and which spell out “In the Name of G-d (YH).”

And if you think that’s coincidental, please note that the measurement of that same South base in cubits is exactly 330 cubits and 3302/3 = 36,300 as well.

Or that 756 x 481 = 363636.

Now, with the hint of the end of the 4 exile periods quite clear, we turn to the measure of the pyramid’s apothem, an imaginary line drawn down the center of the South face of the pyramid,and we get a measurement of 612 feet, the numerical value of the Hebrew word Brit, meaning Covenant.

As for the 4 letter word Brit (BRYT), while the Covenant of Abraham was in 2018 HC and 5778 is also 2018 CE, the sum 4 full aspects of word give us: the gematria milui value plus its standard value plus its ordinal value plus the kolel of the 4 letters = 1348 +612+ 54 + 4 = 2018. And let’s not forget that 54 is the sum of Dalet and Nun (DN) as explained above.

From here, the analysis of the pyramid’s structure and dimensions get deeper and the meaning of their revelations more profound, including their connections and similarities to the future Temple, and their precise and startling insights in our most modern physics.

But we’re going to pause, give you a breather, and split up this article into digestible components, but before we do, we want you to step back and to picture the enormity of what you’ve just read. Picture yourself standing at the foot of this mountain, towering a steep 48 stories above you, made up of 6 million tons of limestone and granite blocks, some weighing up to 50 tons each, and take in that it was assembled thousands of years ago with an amazing precision rivaling NASA today, and that all its measurements to a fraction of an inch detail a prophecy of the coming Moshiach and of the end of the 4 exiles, yet it was built long before the first exile ended.

Make no bones about it; this is a mountain; it is the moutain. It stands 210 levels and 210 cubits high and the gematria of “the mountain” (HHR) is 210.

Ask yourself how?

Ask yourself why?

Was it just to conceal and yet preserve in stone the measurement of the ancient and future cubit? After all, that base measurement of the South face of 756.25 feet is not only two and a half football fields in length, but is also exactly 27.52.

So yes, that is one very important reason. And after the Tower of Babel—the only other time the Torah mentions the word bricks besides in conjunction with the Israelites work in Egypt—maybe there was very good reason to conceal the cubit until now.

And in terms of preserving it, I can tell you this, had it not been preserved in the measures of Joseph’s Pyramid it would have been lost forever, and you would not be reading this article.

There’s much more to follow, and remember this is only still part of our first step in exploring the construction of the Future Temple. With each step the energy increases and we get closer to the tree-of-life reality.

Blessing of the Sun

There’s a lot of chatter on the internet about the meaning of the blessing of the sun (Birkas HaChamah), which occurs every 28 years and next on April 8, 2009, erev Pesach 14 Nissan when the sun returns to the exact position as it was on the day it was created. It’s been rumored to have occurred only twice before: at the time of Exodus from Egypt, and during the 3-day fast of the Purim story as recorded in the Megillat Esther.

Yet. This is not correct, as it occurred on erev Pesach in 1925, and the 28-year period did not even end in or near the year of the Exodus 2448 or of the Purim story in 3405, let alone erev Pesach of those years. In fact, we have to go back 3752 years to find a date when the blessing of the sun (Birkas HaChamah) was recited within a year of any significant Biblical or relevant historic event, and that was in 2017, when G-d made the Covenant with Abraham in 2018.

Nevertheless, the blessing of the sun (Birkas HaChamah) on April 8, 2009, erev Pesach, is not without its significance for us because, as we’ve discussed in numerous blogs, the Sun is what marks the arrival of Moshiach and G-d’s timetable for the geula. As we know, the tzaddikim of blessed memory have prophesied the year 5778 for Mashaich and the geula, and the radiance of the sun, as measured by its surface temperature, is 5778 K.

Moreover, as illustrated repeatedly in The Divine Calendar, nearly every significant Biblical date and event ends in the number 8, so April 8, 2009 being 8 years before the start of the 5778 period, which according to the overwhelming evidence in There’s Nothing Random in the Universe, should occur between 577.78 and 5778.28, could very well signal the beginning of the 8-year period of darkness that chazal has indicated would precede the brit of H’Moshiach, which not coincidentally occurs in 2018 CE, reflecting back on G-d’s Covenant (Brit) with Abraham in 2018 HC.

That the blessing of the sun, which connects us to Creation, occurs every 28 years is reflected in the 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse, “In the Beginning G-d created Heaven and Earth.”

ברוך אתה ה’ אלוקינו מלך העולם עשה מעשה בראשית”

“Blessed are You, LORD, our God, King of the Universe who makes the works of Creation.”

A simple blessing, right?

Kabbalistic technology reveals that the 9 final letters add up to 506, as in the first verse of the 42-Letter Name (Shem Mem-Bet or Ana B’koach) which as detailed in The Genesis Prayer is integrally connected with the Torah’s first verse and is the blueprint for Creation itself. And not coincidentally 506 is the numerical value of “Unconditional Love” and the complete value of “Moshiach Ben David”

Now considering that 5778 K, the surface temperature of the Sun is 2018 CE in the Western Calendar how extraordinary is it that the sum of those same 9 final letters in gematria sofit is 2017 when the kolel of 9 subtracted, just like the date 2017 HC when the blessing of the sun (Birkas HaChamah) was also recited.

Speaking of gematria, the gematria value of the full 9-word verse is 2712, which compares to the 7 words of the Torah’s first verse, which is 2701, and adjusting for the kolel of the 11 additional letters in the blessing, they are essentially the same value, 2701.

And while he last 2 words of the verse Ma’aser Bereshit, (מעשה בראשית) the works of creation, have the initials of the Shem Mem-bet (42-letter Name), the initials of the first 5 words add up to 54, as in 54 x 107 = 5778, bringing up everything else concerning 54 and 107 that we’ve previously discussed in other articles.  Moreover, the gematria sofit of the full blessing is 4232, a very graphic conjunction of 42 and 232, the value of the 4 aspects of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).

So when you do the blessing, make sure you also recite the Ana B’koach with the right consciousness and desire to connect to the tree-of-life reality and Mashiach, and meditate on it’s first line.

The 10 Plagues and the Final Redemption

…continued from the 10 plagues: In the last two blogs in this mini-series on the 10 plagues, we discussed how the 10 plagues were more for the benefit of waking up the Israelites to the tree-of-life reality than shaking up the Egyptians, and how that were even more for our benefit as we deal with the same spiritual afflictions our brethren faced 66.6 jubilee years ago, when they too stood before the 50th gate of darkness. In this installment we’ll explore what and how those signs back in 2448 have to do with us today as we fast approach 5778.

There are normally 41 letters in the 10 plagues with 41 being the number of letters in the full Name Ehyeh spelled out, the powerful Name for “I am that I am.” Nevertheless, in the Torah the word for beasts (or flies) is never spelled with the “vav” as it is in traditional Hebrew, which leaves us with just 40 letters.

The 10 Plagues and the Final Redemption

If we include the vav as is customary in most hagadahs,the sum of the 10 plagues using gematria sofit is 5546. And 546 is not only the sum of the initials of the 10 sefirot, but is the result of 21 x 26. We know that the Tetragrammaton, the ineffable Name of G-d, (YHVH), has the numerical value of 26 and that Ehyeh (EHYH) has the value 21, so we can easily understand that this is no coincidence, especially since we know from chazal that the 10 plagues were all about rectifying the 10 sefirot and preparing the Israelites to receive the 10 sefirot (tree-of-life) reality.

But to further understand this we must visualize each of the 21 aspects (or energy centers) within the Name Ehyeh (EHYH) embued with the power of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH). And when we do this we’re no longer passively meditating, but actively activating the tree-of-life, which is why there are 21 YHVH’s in each of the 2 parts of the tefillin (head and hand) and one of the reasons there is a large letter Shin (Sh) on it, whose ordinal value is 21.

It’s important for all of us to understand the tools we’re using to the fullest, and it’s no different from using your computer to send email, or to do so much more. So for those of you who use the tefillin, it’s very important to understand that not only are you connecting to the 10 sefirot with both your head and your hand tefillin, but each one is collected to a fully [potent Ehyeh (EHYH) and togetther, the two Ehyehs and you head (RESh) form and connect to EHYH EShR EHYH “I am that I am.” And moreover, that the 42 YHVH’s all together connect you to the power of the 42-Letter Name (Shem Mem-Bet, also known as the Ana B’koach), associated with not only manifesting miracles in our world, but with helping to bring about the geula (final redemption), but for more on that please read The Genesis Prayer.

It also further connects you to the physical seed of Mashiach Ben David and the power of manifestation through the 42 times the the name Yehuda(YHVDH) appears in the Torah, which each one containing the YHVH. Yehuda (Judah) was a man of action and strength and this attribute is built into all association with him, and thus the proper use of the 42-letter Name and the tefillin.

These are powerful tools we’ve been given, the Torah, the Names, the Tefillin and they are not to be taken or sued lightly. In the proper consciousness they have the power to open us up to the tree-of-life reality and when we pray/mediate for others, for the greater community to receive this consciousness and our compassion and we follow that up with our actions, we can make the tree-of-life a reality for not only ourselves, but the world. And just like the Names of G-d within the Torah and within our prayers and tefillin are intertwined and linked one to another, so must our prayers and actions; only by praying for and helping one another can we assemble the full 10 sefirot (dimensions) of the tree-of-life reality, the true reality beyond our illusory world of selfish desires and desperate needs.

And it’s absolutely no coincidence that at the end of the 10 plagues, just before beginning the first leg in their 42 journeys to reach the Promised Land, we were given 2 of the 4 portions that are housed in the tefillin in Shmot (Names/Exodus) 13:1-16, culminating with Shmot 13:16 “These shall be a sign on your arm and an insignia in the center of your head. [all this] is because G-d brought us out of Egypt with a show of strength.”

And for those that don’t use tefillin and for morning prayers and for those of us that do as well when we’re going about our daily lives, we can and should still keeps the signs of G-d and signs of redemption on our heads and arms, in our thoughts and our actions at all times. This will activate the tree-of-life, and then we can really know what it is to live.

Getting back to the 10 plagues, we see that their full sofit value is off from 5778 by 232, since 5546 + 232 = 5778, the year preordained for the arrival of the Moshiach as explained by the tzaddikim. And as explained in numerous other blogs 232 is the sum of the 4 aspects of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH:Av, Sag, Mah, Ban). And if you recall, 232 also defined the divine relationship between the Earth and the Sun, whose surface temperatures (or radiances) were248.573 K and 5778 K respectively and 5778/248.573 = 23.2447.

As we’ve noted extensively in The Divine Calendar, the dates of the Exodus in 2448 HC, the Final Redemption in 5778 HC and the fulcrum point of the Gregorian Calendar in 3760 HC are all integrally connected and aligned, so it’s no surprise that the sum of the 10 plagues in standard gematria equals 3290, and when we add the ordinal value of the 40 letters in the 10 plagues, (468), we get 3290 + 468 + 2 (the kolel for the 2 elements of the equation) = 3760, or 26.26 jubilee years after the Exodus, with 26 being the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) yet again.

Once again, we see the Torah giving us the tools, spelling out how we need to use them and showing us the timing of G-d’s Divine Calendar.  We can choose to ignore them as most of us have done for 66.6 jubilee years, or connect to them, put them in our hands and our heads and our hearts and bring about Moshiach and the geula, and end our final exile, once and for all.

…to be continued in 10 Plagues, Final Installment, where we explore further how the Names are woven into the final plague and how we can use that for our own redemption.
