The Ten Commandments Part V: Where are You, God?

Some Got it, Most Didn’t; Will We?

…Continued from The Ten Commandments

In the previous installments we spoke of the first 3 words (Exodus 20:2), “I am God, your Lord,” of the 10 Commandments and how they connect with the Torah’s first verse and how they contain the entirety of the 10 Commandments’ power and structure.

Just to add to what’s been discussed already,  we note that we can break down (ENCY YHVH ELHYC) into the symmetrical phrase (EYC YHVH NHL EYC), which numerically is (31 + 111 + 31) and while 31 is the numerical value of El (G-d) and Lo, (LE), meaning “don’t,” used so often throughout the 173 words of the 10 Commandments.  Meanwhile 111 is the value of the letter alef (E), the permuted phrase could translate to “Where are you? G-d, our guide, Where are You?”

Some of the Israelites reached Keter, and the Tree-of-life represented by alef, which when broken down (Yud-Vav-Vav-Yud) has the numerical value of 32 and thus is our physical symbol of the 32 Paths of Wisdom that are the 32 connections (energy centers and channels) of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) that comprise the Tree-of-life. One of the interesting things about the structure of the letter alef (Yud-Vav-Vav-Yud) is that the upper Yud-Vav component when spelled out equals 42 numerically, as does the lower Yud-Vav component when spelled out equal 42. Thus the letter Alef, all on its own represents the complete union of the upper and lower 42-letter Names, which chazal has explained together translate to Pad (84), redemption.  It’s no wonder that the Alef represents the Tree-of-life, which according to R’ Chaim Vital of blessed memory in his book, New Writings, is really 42 and connected to the 42 Letter Name, because the 32 Paths are added to the 10 sefirot (dimensions). This is also why there are 42 letters in the names of the sefirot.

Most did not, and asked “Where are you? G-d, our guide, Where are You?”

They could see the words but not beyond them. We have to do everything we can to see beyond them, past the barriers of our own illusions, our own limitations.

Like the first 3 words of this first verse that significantly have 13 letters that correspond to the 13 verses of the Ten Commandments, the last 2 words of the verse m’bet avadim, have 9 letters corresponding to the 9 paragraphs: (MBYT ABDYM), “from the house of slavery.”

So let’s examine those 2 words, which were last used in the Torah during the killing of the first born, the 10th plague, whose initials were MB. These 2 words (MBYT ABDYM) begin with Mem-Bet and Ayin-Bet respectively, as in the 42-Letter Name and the 72 Names, which are the keys to freedom hidden within the doorways to the house of slavery.

Some found these keys, most didn’t.

Those that didn’t weren’t really ready, even after everything they had seen. They still weren’t ready to let go completely.

When we unlock the MB and AB in (MBYT ABDYM) we’re left with 5 letters that total 1024, as in the numbers of word values in the Torah, precisely 210, or 32 x 32. Moreover, concealed within teh word for slavery (ABDYM) are the initials of Mashiach Ben David, and what’s left is the Hebrew word  Yi (AY), meaning “debris, ruins.” Two clear choices.

When faced with a revelation of light, we can choose to embrace it, or to embrace our doubts instead.  Most people choose the comfort of their doubts, and the company of their peers.

And while the numerical value of MBYT is 452, so is the number of times that the value 86, that of Elohim appears in the Torah, 452 times.  It’s noteworthy that found Elohim appears in both the Torah’s first verse and the 10 Utterances introductory verse (Exodus 20:1), both of whichare comprised of 7 words and 28 letters.

Meanwhile, the value of (MBYT ABDYM), “From the house of slavery” is 578, a possible allusion to the year prophesied  5778.

The connection to Elohim is understandable, considering that this Name (aspect of) G-d, was found 32 of those times in Creation, the first chapter of the Torah, which of course, means that the value 86 is found 32 times the story of creation and 420 times in the rest of the Torah. Things that make you go hmm!

Moreover, the value 86, that of Elohim, is found a total of 62 times through the completion of the 10 generations of Adam in chapter 5, analogis to the 62 letter Yuds of numerical value 10 within the 620 letters of the 10 Commandments.

There’s not much room for coincidence here. Nor room for error, as the window to the Tree-of-life opens for the 3rd time, the last time being 3330 years ago.

As one would imagine there’s so much concealed information and guidance jam-packed into these 620 letters that it becomes tedious to try to maneuver through it all. So we’ll stop here and continue in our next posts, where we’ll explain what everything in the previous articles were hinting at: what happened at Mt Sinai; what were the two paths in the Torah that followed; and what’s hidden in plain sight within the 10 Commandments that describes what the next few years will bring.

The implications for us today are extraordinarily profound, which is why all this tedious background enlightenment into the workings and encodings of the Ten Commandments (Utterances) and to its connection to the whole Torah were necessary. The Torah must be seen as a whole, and the 10 Utterances as a special moment or window in time if we are to welcome the next cosmic opening.

…to be continued shortly.

The previous installments of The Ten Commandments are here.

The Ten Commandments – Part III – From the Seed of Creation

First there were the 10 plagues which cleansed out the negativity (klippot) of the 10 sefirot of the negative (or inverse) Tree-of-life.  Then there were the 10 doubts that cleaned out the the negativity (klippot) from the 10 sefirot (levels/dimensions) that had crossed over into Malchut, our world, the lowest of the 10 dimensions of the positive Tree-of- life.  Then we were ready, or so we thought, for the 10 Commandments.

We’re covering the 10 Commandments over many parts not only because of their depth and their importance as the high point (keter) of the Torah, but because they play a role in our lives and for our generation bigger than any of us could imagine, and we’ll reveal exactly what that is–perhaps our biggest revelation to date–by the end of the series.  For now, we need to understand them and the mechanics behind them better.

So while the total number of letters, words, and verses in the entire Torah total 390,625, which is 6252, or an astonishingly exact 58, the number of letters, words, and verses in the actual 10 Utterances (Commandments) is 620+172+13 = 805, the numerical value of “The rainbow,” which was G-d first Covenant (brit) with Earth.

And while 13, as in the 13 verses of the 10 Commandments, is the numerical value of ahava (love), if we add the 9 paragraphs to 805 we get 805 +9 = 814, the numerical value of the verse that Hillel stated summarizes the entire Torah in Levitiucs 19:18, paraphrased as “love they neighbor as thyself.”

That there are 9 paragraphs is probably not coincidental either as the numerical value 625, that of H’keter (The Crown) is found 9 times in the Torah, and keter (Crown) of value 620, as in the 620 letters of the 10 Commandments, is found 10 times that many times, or 90 times.

As we’re dealing with the moment the Israelites touched Keter, it should be noted here that the number 10 (or any multiple of it) is in a proportion with the year 5778 (2018 CE) that spells out the 173 Keys (the 42-Letter Name) which were given to Moses, and that are necessary to achieve the final redemption, according to chazal.

For example,   10,000, or 104, representing Keter, when divided by 5778 yields 10,000/5778 = 1.7307026, or a perfectly graphic rendition of the shem mem-bet (173 keys); the The Divine Calendar70 nations, etc; 702 (Shabbat); and the YHVH (26). Readers of this blog and of The Divine Calendar know full well the significance of the number 70 and the role that the time span of 70 years repeatedly played in the Israelite history, so we should point out that the 10 Commandments (Utterances) occur in the 70th Chapter in the Torah.

And if what we’ve recently learned about the role the 10 Commandments are to play in out future, G-d is very serious about keeping the Sabbath (Shabbat), so none of the numbers in the above equation are superfluous.

So, it’s pretty obvious to us, as it’s always been to the tzaddikim, that in the relationship between reaching Keter, which means receiving the Mashiach and the Tree-of-life consciousness, the understanding the 42-Letter Name (the ability to access the 173 keys) and the year 5778 is a most important one. It was important enough to etch onto the cosmos and to build the Torah around, and important enough for G-d to reveal to us today only 7 years shy of 5778.

The 10 Utterances and the Seed of Creation, the First Window

We always look to the seed level of anything to find its outcome, for as with a seed and the eventual tree that grows from it, its entire genetic blueprint is already there, and so it is spiritually as well with our actions. In this case, we’ll look to the first verse in the section, Exodus 20:2, and to the first verse in the Torah to which it connects.

We know from chazal and have explained numerous times and in depth in The Genesis Prayer how the 42-Letter name is integrally connected with the Torah’s first verse as both a remote control for the Torah and as the seed of Creation itself, so we’ll skip that here, and instead point out the Torah’s first verse’s interesting connections to keter and to these 620 letters.

OK, so we know that the 7 words in the Torah’s first verse are connected to chochma/wisdom, of numerical value 73, because their total value is equal to all the positive integers through 73, and we know that the letter Yud (Y) of numerical value 10, represents the sefira of Chochma in the YHVH, and that there are 62 Yuds in the 620 letters of the 10 utterances, but what we didn’t know was that the word values of each of the Torah first 2 words (9 letters) are repeated a total of 62 times in the Torah.

So let’s think this through. The Torah’s first 2 words’ numerical value are found 2 x 31 (the numerical value of El, G-d, and thus is Lo, “don’t”) which the value if the Yuds amongst the 620 letters of the 10 Commandments is 20 x 31, El. From 2 to 20, a multiple of 10, as we’re climbing up the 10 Sefirot of the Tree-of-life to Keter.

For a tree to grow, a seed must be planted.

Back to the Torah’s first verse. While the actual 4th and 6th words (totaling 4+6=10) in the Torah (Et and V’Et) are found a total of 3450 times in the Torah, or 345 x 10, with 345 being the numerical value of both Moses (Moshe) and Hashem (G-d), the total number of times that their word values reoccur is exactly 622.

There are also 62 times that the 2nd word and or it’s value, 203, reoccur.

So the first 2 words together and independently connect to 62 and the 4th and 6th together do as well. So if we add up those 622 and 62 and connections, we get 62 x 65 of them, all within the first 7 words of the Torah, and since 65 is the numerical value of Adonai, representing Malchut, the connections stretch from Keter all the way down to Malchut.

This compares with the 7363 total word occurrences and word value recurrences for those 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 6 words in the Torah, all of them connected to 62.  And for some reason 7363 – (62 x65) = 3333. It seems almost too perfect.  Or they may be yet another clue and piece in the puzzle, and have something to do with the 3330 years between the twp tree-of-Life opportunities in 2448 at Sinai and in 5778.

So maybe the fact that 1+2+4+6 = 13, as in the 13 verses of the 10 Utterances, isn’t a coincidence either.

And as for words #3, 5, and 7 of the Torah’s first verse, whose collective numerical value is 777, their total word and word value recurrences is 3125 or 625 (H’Keter) x 5.

Is it possible that this is yet another rendition and clue to 5-777, or 5777 (2017 CE)?

In order for Moses to have led the Israelites to Keter at Mt Sinai in the seed had to have been planted 2448 years earlier. And in order for us to experience it would take another 3330 years to reach full height (maturity). But before we can climb it, we have understand it and the best way to do that is to understand the seed that spawned it.

So what connects the Torah’s first 7 words and its 70th Chapter, where we find the 10 Commandments? For one, they are connected by 107,007 letters, and just as the sum of the integers through 73 equals the T0rah’s first verse, the sum of the integers through 107 equals 5778.

Nothing in the Torah is situated randomly. Everything has a purpose and is part of a plan. Wouldn’t you like to know what that was?

Just note for now, that what’s happening all over the Mideast right now is directly related to what’s happening to the 70 supernal ministers over the 70 nations and what’s happening to them is directly related to our shift through the 70th chapter of the Torah.

We’re getting closer. Part IV will follow shortly.

Creation by Design; Renewed Every year.

As we complete the 22 days of the holidays and reestablish the relationship between the Zeir Anpin and Malchut (Heaven and Earth so to speak) for another year, we read once again the story of Creation. Before even finishing the holiday, just after we finish the 7th hakifot (encircling) with the lulov and doing the 7 hakifot with the Torah, both associated with Zeir Anpin, we read the first 32 verses of Creation, the verses that establish the 7 days of Creation.  This is of design, not convenience.

The 32 verses of Creation, as well established by Chazal, connect to the 32 Paths of Wisdom, the Tree-of-Life. And as we explained in a previous post, similarly the ordinal value of the word Lulov, which is 32, does as well, and moreover, they both connect to the Alter at the center of the Third Temple, which measures 32 x 32 cubits.

What was not previously explained was that the 6 verses in which each of the first 6 days were completed in, thus establishing the 6 sefirot (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin, are the verses #5, 8, 13, 19, 23, and 31 of the Torah’s first chapter. The numbers 5 + 8 +13 + 19+ 23 + 31 = 99 and in the 1st verse of the 2nd chapter G-d completed Creating Heavean and Earth, plus 99 + 1 = 100, a level of perfection kabbalistically speaking, but also the square of 10 (sefirot) and the complete value of the word Lulov, (68 + 32 = 100), and also the measure of the inner courtyard surrounding the Alter at the center of the Future Holy Temple, 100 x 100 cubits.

This also corresponds to the sum of the ordinal values of the first 10 letters of the Torah (BREShYT BRE E) “In the beginning was created Alef:” 2+20+1+21+10+22+2+2+1+1 = 100, once again perfection and the square of the 10 sefirot.  And it should be noted that teh composite value of the letter Alef is 32, which is why it’s associated with the Tree-of-life.

As we said, when we complete the 7th day, Malchut, firmly establishing the 7 sefirot and 7 days of Creation in the 1st verse of the 2nd chapter, we have a total value of the verses as 100 which corresponds to the 100 blowings of the shofar on Rosh Hashannah that began the Holiday process 22 days ago.

This is all by design to reestablish our connection to the Tree-of-Life EVERY year, every year through the period of the Third Temple, which according to the prophecy of the tzaddikim should happen in about 7 years from now (around 5778).

Please note that 5778 is 66.6 jubilee years from the reception of the Torah at Sinai in 2448, and we mention this because as was explained in book The Genesis Prayer the number 5913 is also derived from a beautiful equation based on the 7 days of Creation and the kabbalistic principal that energy is never lost.

Before we get into the equation please note that in the 6 days of Creation there are 66 times the letter combination for the word “sea” appears (YM) of numerical value 50, the same as the length of the jubilee year, 50 years.  According to chazal, whenever we see the combination (YM) as in Elohim (ELHYM) it represents the sefira of Binah (understanding).

And as for Elohim (ELHYM) it is found 32 times in those same verses of the 6 Days of Creation. Whether it’s the lulov, or the Torah or the Alter in the Future Holy Temple, we’re tapping into the Tree-of-Life , and drawing the light (energy) from Binah through the 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin into the 7th, Malchut, the world of matter and limitation.

Abraham, the Patriarch, taught us in his Sefer Yetzirah several thousand years ago that 7 factorial is 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 5040, and when we apply that to 6 factorial and again for each of the 7 days of Creation and then add them together, we get (5040 + 720 + 120 + 24 + 6+ 2 + 1) = 5913 and even more significant, we know that the 10 Commandments and thus the 2nd opportunity of the Tree-of-Life reality was received on Shavuot 2448, or the exact Western date 5/9/1313 BCE (some say 5/9/1312 BCE, but it’s still 5/9/13).

Of further note is that 7 factorial and 6 factorial together total 5760 and (5 and 4 factorial) = 144 and (5 and 4 and 3 and 1 factorial = 151.  So, while 5760 is the year 2000 CE, the spiritual cleaning bath, or mikve has the numerical value of 151 (same as the higher name of G-d, Ehyeh) and it contains 40 seah each of 144 eggs, for a total volume of 5760 eggs, as prescribed by chazal.  It was based on this calculation for the mikve and divine inspiration that Rav Abraham Azulai of blessed memory, prophesied that the  Geula/Moshiach  process would begin in 5760 (2000 CE) and this period of Oy and Ashray could conceivably last for the 18 years until 5778 as fits the other prophecies, especially since the square root of 18 is 4.24, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David.

Everything is by design.
