The Fingerprints of G-d

There is a place with G-d’s fingerprints all over it. And they form a pattern, two hand prints, 10 fingers and a date.

Last week, I was wrapping one of our Pesach cabinets, when I discovered 3 bags of Israeli cous cous (chametz gamor) in the cabinet we were selling beside it. My ego swelled and I felt like a hero. In the very next second, the door swung shut on my pinky, crushing it.  I carefully removed the chametz and paused to ponder the relationship between the two events, which by the way is the real kabbalah—examining the causes and effects in our lives, not reading people’s astrological signs. I realized G-d was not allowing me the slightest ego and was crushing it out of me like oil from an olive.  I was so grateful. The pain and bruising went away instantaneously and I saw G-d’s fingerprint in the event.

I had no trouble seeing G-d’s hand in the cause-and-effect event. Thanks to the wave of Binah energy that is blanketing us, shortening the time frame between cause and effect, many like-minded individuals can see it too.  But what of the skeptics and doubters? At the time of the incident I had been working on an answer for them, a place where G-d’s fingerprints would be unmistakable and unquestionable. Moreover, these fingerprints tell a story, tell us about the opening of the 50 Gates of Binah and the onset of the 1000 years of Moshiach Ben David that are upon us.

If G-d were to have carved His Designs, Plans and Name in a 1000-year-old tree would people believe it was real? No, anyone could have carved them there. If He engraved them in large letters high up on a giant rock ledge, would they be heeded? Probably not, again someone could conceivably carved them. If He gave us specific instructions in the Torah would Man follow them? Again, as is evidenced, most would not, and even many of those that do do not know what to make of them. Total certainty, the necessary password for the Gates of Moshiach, is so difficult to achieve.

So where could G-d place these designs and plans of His so that we can be sure that only He could have written them, and none other? There is a place and it is hard to reach, in fact, it was only reachable in the last few decades and only to the people least likely to have such faith in G-d. Even though we can prove beyond the slightest doubt that Man could not have written the Torah and that much of the Torah is designed to connect us with the various Names of G-d we cannot prove to you that G-d wrote it; after all, a hyper intelligent life force from outer space or from the future could have done it too. Nevertheless, the omniscient G-d redundantly placed those designs and proofs for us in a place that aliens could not have created.  G-d hardwired them into the fabric of the universe, into the physics and mathematics that have existed since the dawn of time.  G-d made them tamperproof. G-d made them immutable and he made them readily accessible to us only as a last resort.  We had thousands of years to find G-d on our own. With no time left, we demand proof.

Before the bundled 7 dimensions of Zein Anpin, the stairway to Heaven represented by the Torah, there existed the realm of Binah. Binah is characterized by the Primordial Hebrew letter Aleph (א), whose numerical value is both 1 and also 1000.   The spiritual dimension of Binah (Understanding) is the World to Come.  Binah is the 1000-year long Shabbat; it is the 7th millennium.  It is represented by both the 1000 letters in the Shema prayer and by the first 1000 digits in the mathematical constant Pi.  It is the place of the primordial letter Aleph (א).  It is the place of infinite understanding and limitless possibilities.  It is upon us and the 50 Gates of Binah are wide open.

Given that the standard mathematics in our universe is base 10 and that our modern scientists and ancient kabbalists agree that the 10 sefirot (dimensions) form a whole or unity/oneness in both our physical and spiritual universe, base 10 logarithms are the equalizers that make all numbers equate to 10.  The standard mathematics in our universe is base 10, meaning we count from 1 to 10, then 10 to 100, and 100 to 1000 in cycles of 10.  Not coincidentally, the standard gematria (numerical valuation) of the Hebrew letters are counted the same way.  Logarithms sound complicated, but the logarithm (log) of a number is the exponent (power) to which another fixed number, called the base, must be raised to produce that number. If we wanted to know the base 10 logarithm of 1000 we would need to calculate to what power 10 must be raised to equal 1000 and since 1000 = 10 × 10 × 10 = 103, the “logarithm to base 10” of the number 1000 is 3.

This simple schematic of 10 x 10 x 10 equaling 1000 and thus 103, mimicking the spiritual structure of the universe in 3 columns and 3 iterations of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) whereby the 1 st iteration is equivalent to our world, Malchut , the next one to Zeir Anpin and the 3 rd to Binah.

This unity/oneness in our base 10 mathematical system is why the logarithm of the number 10 is 1 (0ne).  That same system dictates that the sum of the logarithms of the integers from 1 to 70 is 100.078, in order words if we take all the resultant logs for each number from 1, 2, 3… 70 and add them all together they would give us 100.078, metaphorically 1000 and 78. Kabbalistically, the decimal place is irrelevant, as it is just a multiple of 10.  Also 78 is the value of the Hebrew initials of the 3 column Tree-0f-Life (חיים עצ) which is the choice we must make in 5778.  We must choose the tree-of-life over the tree-of-knowledge of good and evil and yet G-d purposely embedded his signature within the boundaries of our knowledge.  And while 78 is 3 times the value (26) of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה), 1000 is 3 iterations of the 10 sefirot of the tree-of-life (10 x 10 x 10).

Adding up 70 irrational numbers and coming up with a whole round number like 100.0 to 3 decimal places is pretty special, but the number 70 itself has a very special place in G-d’s Divine plans. There were 70 members of Jacob’s family that entered Egypt; 70 members of the Sanhedrin that were formed at Mt Sinai; the 10 Commandments were found in the 70 th chapter in the Torah; and the many all-important 70-year periods throughout Biblical history from Adam to Abraham to David to the exiles and all 3 Holy Temples, culminating in the 70 years since the birth of the State of Israel to the prophesied coming of Moshiach this year in 5778.  This deep impression connecting the 1000 sub-sefirot (dimensions) of Binah with the 70 sub-sefirot of Zeir Anpin is but a single fingerprint that G-d left for us within the logarithmic scale. It is also the connection we need to make to jump from Zeir Anpin, the heavenly ladder, to Binah.

The logs of a number are immutable, and man has no say in them. The results are unique.  After noting that within the endless stream of logs, the number 70 stands out starkly, as in the 70 members of Jacob’s family that entered Egypt, we can see yet another fingerprint of G-d in the unity and oneness of the 600,000 souls that received those 10 Commandments at Mt Sinai: the base 10 log of 600,000 is 5.778.  It is because all is One and in G-d’s plans everything is One, everything ties together.  There were about 3 million Israelites at Mt Sinai, but the Torah specifically singled out and mentioned the 600,000 men who were there, just as it specifically mentioned the 70 family members.  Man barely knew how to count 3330 years ago when the Torah was given at Sinai, so there is no way he could have calculated the logarithms to choose these specific numbers.  As the Arizal pointed out, those 600,000 souls at Sinai divided by the 70 family members and again by the 12 sons of Israel and the 3 Patriarchs gives us 10000/42, representing the 42-Letter Name of G-d capable of unifying us.

Another thing that Man could not have known about 3330 years ago is that there are 3 strings of the digit sequence “…5778…” within the first 1000 digits of Pi (3.14159265358…) and also 3 strings of the sequence of “…2019…”, giving us consecutive back-to-back years 2018 and 2019 in the Gregorian calendar.  Two of those “…2019…” numerical strings are actually matching 5-digit strings of “…42019…” each, coupling the year 2019 with the number 42.  Also, when Man was told at Mt Sinai in the year 2448 to start counting jubilee years (50-year periods), he could not have known that he would have to wait 3330 or 66.6 jubilee years, until the year 5778 for his next opportunity to reach Binah.

You can find 1000s of explanations of how the mathematical constant Pi is anything but random in the books, Nothing is Random in the Universe, and some illustrations of how standard gematria interprets them such as (3.14159265358…) breaking down to the Names of G-d 31 (אל); 15 (יה); 26 (יהוה) and at the 10th decimal place 358, Moshiach.  The World to Come, Binah, associated with the number 1000 is called the great Shabbat, one of 1000 years so how telling is it that the first string of “…42019…” within those 1000 digits of Pi is located at digit #702, the numerical value of Shabbat, or that the final 42019 is the last 5 digits of the 1000 and that the sum of the 995 digits until it is 4446, when 44 x 46 equals 57.78 yet again. Another thing about 4446 is that it is 1332 or 2 x 666 less than 5778.

Let us be crystal clear, Man can mess with his DNA; Man can mess with nuclear atoms, but Man can not shape of influence which digit in Pi is where or how often it reoccurs. Only G-d could do that.  And while Man had a hand in warming up the Earth a little, it was G-d’s prerogative to make the surface temperature of the Sun, 5778K.

The fingerprints of G-d are all over the mathematical constants Pi and Phi. For example, intercalated amongst those first 13 digits of Pi with the Names El, Yah, the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) and Moshiach are the 3 digits 4, 9 and 5, who add up to 18, whose square root is 4.24 (Moshiach Ben David).  When we raise the other primordial mathematical constant Phi (1.61803399…) to 18, we get 5778.000 yet again.

By the way, those 3 intercalated numbers (4, 9, and 5) were the 3 rd, 6 th and 9 th digits, which also sum to 18, and (4 x 3 + 9 x 6 + 5 x 9) = 111 or Aleph (אלף) representing Binah.  Nevertheless, this article is mostly about G-d’s fingerprints found in His system of Logarithms and not so much which we have already written about extensively.  Atheists would say it is nature that determines the physical laws that created mathematics and our solar system, and believers would say G-d (Elohim) is nature. While believers can easily see G-d’s plans being unveiled, atheists probably still see it all as mere coincidence, impossible 1 in a trillion coincidences, but coincidences nonetheless.  Believing in G-d is all about letting go of our ego, and the belief that we are in control is the hardest aspect of ego to let go of.  Denial is the purest form of ego.

Let us examine some of those so-called coincidences.  While the log of 9 is .95424, spelling out in gematria “The King Moshiach Ben David (95 and 424),” the number 954 also represents the digit #954 within Pi, where the 3rd and final 5778 is located within those first 1000 digits. The final one of the 3 sequences of “…2019…” comprise the absolute last 4 digits in the first 1000 digits of Pi, metaphorically the year that the Gates of Binah and sealed. The final “…5778..” is part of a 10 digit sequence “…5778185778…”that starts at digit #948 and the sum of the digits in Pi up to that point is 4240 or 10 x 424.

Interestingly, there are 42 digits between the last “…5778…” at digit #954 and the last “…2019…” at digit #996. This is like the prophecies of the prophets calling for a period of 42 months until the final redemption.  The log of 10 is Unity (1); the log of 9 spells out “King Moshiach Ben David;” and the Log of 8 is .90309, which hints at the 42-Letter Name of G-d since 903 is the sum of the integers from 1 to 42.

The 42-Letter Name of G-d is the ladder to Binah built into the Torah’s first verse and according to Rav Brandwein of blessed memory, “The Understanding of the 42-Letter Name will bring about the geulah (final redemption).  Of ALL the endless sums of the logs from the bases 1 – 10, the ONE number that is closest to a whole number is 42, or most precisely 41.99997. This makes the number 42 unique in the universe. This is because the 42-Letter Name is the ladder that we can actually climb that bridges our world with heaven and eventually with Moshiach Consciousness (Binah).  This is also why we use the 42-Letter Name matrix to count the Omer every year and why it is especially important this year.

Adding up the logs of all the bases from 1 to 10 is not arbitrary, as in our base 10 mathematical and physical world, 10 represents the completion of a level. It does as well in the spiritual realm. The Zohar explains nothing happens below that does not happen above.  When we do add them up, we are adding up the resultant numbers of calculating each power exponent for each of the 10 bases,

If the log of 6 being .778 and that of the integers 8, 9, and 10 are also telling, then what of the sum of the logs from 1 to 11, whose value when squared is 57.78. Similarly, the sum of the squares of the integers from 1 to 11 is 506, which is not only the value of the first line of the 42-Letter Name matrix and also the number of the Torah occurrences of the 14 triplets in 42-Letter Name matrix, but it is also the complete gematria value of “Moshiach Ben David.”

We have been advising about the convergence of the Gregorian and Western Calendars upon the year 5778 for 20 years now so we would be remiss to point out that the ONLY log whose Hebrew Calendar year aligns with its Gregorian one is the year 2000 or 5760 in the Hebrew Calendar.  Through the Log of 5760, which is 3.76042248, the year 3760 HC, the year “0” in the Western Calendar is eternally connected.  2000 years separate the two dates and there are no other dates that line up separated as whole numbers at all.  Ironically, the date 3760 HC is followed by 422, the year the 1 st Holy Temple was destroyed, -422 BCE.  The 2 nd Holy Temple was destroyed in the year 70 CE, and “422” is the gematria value for the Hebrew word “seventy.”  How is it possible that the only date this happens with within the entire logarithmic system is the year 3760 HC (0 CE), the date the 2 calendars pivot on? And given 3.760 42 248 whether G-d intended this or not there are 42 rows in every Torah scroll and 248 columns. Perhaps it is a reminder that it always comes back to the 42-Letter Name and to the Torah.

Taking it all a giant step further and knowing that Binah, the 1000-year period of Moshiach, is most represented by the number 1000, if we were to add the logarithms of all the bases from 1-10 for the number 1000, they would sum to 42.3994 or 42.4, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David.  That must be telling us something.  The 10 logs of 1000 could have added up to any other number. No number could have added up to anything close to 42.4. Yet these 10 for the number 1000 did. Given the nature of logarithms and their very flat curve most resultant numbers fall into the double-digit category. To reach a result above 100, even with summing all the logs of bases 1 – 10, our starting number would need to be about 12,000,000 and it goes up exponentially and unfathomably higher from there.  What we are saying is that 42.4 is the only number that could be representative of 424, especially since the sum of all the logs from bases 1 -10 for even the lowest whole number, 2, is 4.25.  Please note that all the logs from bases 1 -10 for the number 1 are “0,” which if we wanted to extract meaning from, we could say that in Unity (Oneness) there is zero (“0”) space between us. If we wanted to get closer to 4.24, we would have to forsake whole numbers and could go with 1.998 or 3 x .666 which would give us 4.248 as the sum of the logs for the bases 1-10, with 4248 being the sum of the 22 spelled out Names of 22 Hebrew letters.

Yes another fingerprint is found on the Natural Log of 70 or LN (70), which is the log to the base of e (2.718…). The Natural Log of 70 is 4.248.

Given that all the summary logs from 1 to 12 million must fall between 4.25 and 100 and given that each one is the sum of 10 different mostly irrational numbers, the odds of one being so close to anything meaningful are astronomical, yet there is a second number that is always associated with Binah.  The kabbalists have been writing about the 50 Gates of Binah for thousands of years—it is even in our Passover Haggadahs.  Since we know that we must reach the 50 Gates of Binah in order to enter Binah, and that we last reached the 50 th Gate when Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt, how incredible is it that the sum of the logarithms of all the bases from 1-10 for the number 3450, representing Moses (משה 345) and also Hashem (השם 345), are precisely 50.000.  According to the Zohar, it is because of this connection to the 50 Gates that we were first told to count the 50-year jubilee cycles, starting at Mt Sinai in 2448 HC, corresponding to 24.48, which is the sum of logs of bases 1 -10 for the number 54. The number 54 stands out because 54 x 107 = 5778 and the sum of all the integers from 1 to 107 is 5778.

Within those 12 million numbers there are only a few that meet our criteria for precision and one of them is the sum of the logs for all the bases from 1-10 for the number 26, representing the Tetragrammaton (יהוה), whose resultant value is 20 (19.99799 to be more precise). The value of 20 represents Keter, the highest dimension, which is why the 10 Commandments are found in the 20th chapter of the Book of Exodus (Shmot) and why there are 620 letters in the 10 Commandments, like the Hebrew word for 20, Esrim (עשרים) of numerical value 620.  Also, for what it is worth, 20 x 50 = 1000.

There are a few others, though one number that keeps coming up for us this year, the number 58, and as we explained in our previous article there is a strong correlation between the Megillah Ester, Ester, Mordechai and the Biblical story of Noach and the Flood.  They share mutual gematriot of 58, 78 and the 127 combinations of 7 words, amongst other things.  As if to make sure we did not miss this important correlation, G-d made sure that when we add the logarithms of all the bases from 1-10 for the number 12700, representing the 127 provinces times the 100 days in the Megillah Ester; the 127 years of Sarah, the Matriarch; and the 127 possible combinations of the 7 words is the Torah’s first verse, corresponding to the 7 sefirot of Zeir Anpin beneath Binah, we would get 58, or 57.99957 to be exact.

We would be remiss if we did not mention the further correlation between word Megillah (מגלה) with a standard value of 78 and an ordinal value of 33 for a complete value of 111, and the Aleph (אלף), which is also eleph (אלף) meaning 1000, also of spelled out value 111. The reason we bring this up is that 78, as in 5778, is also the value for Mabul, the Biblical flood (מבול) whose ordinal value is likewise 33, which is the sum of the logs of the bases 1 – 10 for the number 216, representing Gevurah (strong judgement) and the 216 letters in the 72 Names of G-d used to split the Red Sea.  To think that this is coincidence is to also ignore that the first 33 letters of the Torah add up to a gematria value of 3003, which is the sum of all the integers from 1 to 77.

G-d’s fingerprints are all over this.  Even today, it is impossible for a team of engineers with a powerful super computer to create a document with anywhere near the complexity of the Torah, let alone align it, as G-d did, with the mathematics that underlay the framework of all the physics of our universe.  G-d also chose to design our solar system to that same alignment.  He did not have to do this.  He did not have to make the Earth orbit the Sun at 66,600 mph. He could have created a system without fingerprints for us to trace; He could have left us with only one option: truly blind faith.  He tried to make it easy for us to find faith and certainty. Even in the final year 5778, with the floodwaters of Binah already upon us since Purim and the Gates of Moshiach Ben David opening wider every day since Pesach, He wants us to find our way in, to find certainty anyway we can.

Of the fingerprints we highlighted above we can connect the dots: after 70 years since the founding of the State of Israel in 1948, the 50 Gates of Binah will swing open ushering in the Great Shabbat (702), the 1000 years of Moshiach Ben David (424) and in accordance with the hints given to us by the Arizal, the crucial moment can happen on the 18th day of Iyar, on the 33rd day of the 50-day Omer period, or .666% of the way through that period which began 100 days or .666% of the way through the period from Zot Chanukah to Shavuot, or .333% of the way through the period from Sukkot to Zot Chanukah in the year 5778 (2018 CE).

Yes, L’ag B’Omer 5778.

B”H it can all unfold as written in the numbers. It depends on us.

Chag Sameach

Ezra

We Have Been Duped

It is Pesach, and even more than our homes, we need to clean out our souls of the chametz. We must clean up our own acts.  There is a reason Purim precedes Pesach.  There is a reason for everything.

Yes, we have been duped, once again.  And it is bad.

Amalek refers to time. The numerical value of Amalek refers to 24 hours and the ordinal value to 60 minutes.  Every year in the weeks before Pesach the Torah tells us to “Remember Amalek,” the tribe, led by Esau’s grandson, that lay in wait for the Israelites after the crossing of the Red Sea and brutally slaughtered the stragglers.  The numerical value in the 8 letters in “remember Amalek” add up to 577, as in this year 5778.  This year, more than ever, we have to watch our backs.

Time used to be on our side. It was the space between cause and effect. It was a space that allowed us to think before we acted, a space mercifully afforded us with which to correct the actions we misguidedly took.  It is gone.  That space no longer exists.  For years you have been saying it feels like things are speeding up, like there is no time for anything anymore.  You were right.

Social media was engineered to remove time, hence “Insta.” Social media removes our filters.  What you would never have said if you had to put pen to paper and had to physically mail something or what you never would have said in person, you now gleefully send out to the entire world in the blink of an eye—without a moment’s thought. We have no more filters, and with the distance between cause and effect eliminated, our thoughts become immediate actions that cannot be taken back, ever.  While harboring negative thoughts was never good, we get judged spiritually and physically only by our actions.  According to the teachings of the Zohar and Kabbalah, those actions condemn us.

The system is designed in such a way that in order for us to be accused by the spiritual Accuser we must physically accuse ourselves first.  And our judgment is based on the judgement we bring upon ourselves and ultimately our condemnation is based on how we condemn ourselves. This is what is meant by “an eye for an eye,” etc. not to go around chopping off thieves’ hands.   Our actions cause our own spiritual reactions.

You’ve heard the Kabbalistic expression, “Like above, below?” What we do below, we do to our spiritual selves below.  That goes for us as individuals and as a global entity.  If we go around spewing hatred and saying better that our perceived enemies are dead only because they do not agree with us and they go around saying the same thing about us, what message are we sending to the spiritual realm? Remember, that message cannot be masked in self-righteous thoughts, because it is only our actions that get judged.   Speech can be bad, especially when it leads to action, but a tweet is an action, a comment on Facebook is an actual action.

If you want to get rid of your chametz, start where is does you the most harm.  Social media was created and perpetuated for 6 main purposes, none of them Holy: to make money off of you; to freely obtain your private data; to cause you to self-incriminate yourself; to keep track of you; to manipulate you; and to facilitate sex.  It was done under the guise of freedom, love, oneness, a closer world, bringing people together. I ask you: 13 years after social media began, do you feel the world has become a place of freedom, love, and oneness, or the opposite, where no one believes anything they see or hear anymore.  Yes, we have been duped. But it is worse than you think.

Every action we take has a ripple effect throughout society and the universe, and every reaction to our action—good or bad—is our responsibility. We spiritually own the actions of everyone we inadvertently caused to react by our actions. We also own the reactions and the outcomes of those people they caused to react, all the way down the chain. It was bad enough when we physically made one person react and they another and another, but when we post something and hundreds of people react to it, and then thousands in turn and even possibly millions, we own that entire chain of responsibility.  It our actions were truly pure and righteous that is great, but 999 times out of 1000 that chain is a chain of judgement, of condemnation, a proverbial noose around our necks of our own making.

It was only a matter of time before Amalek struck again, laying in wait for us.  We were warned.

We have been duped into condemning ourselves, into bringing judgement upon ourselves.  As it says in the Zohar, in the commentaries on pasha Noach, “But, you might ask: If their time has not come yet, then why should Judgement be delivered on them? Because it is they who inflict the punishment on themselves, as the Holy One, blessed be He, would never punish them before their time has come.”

At the time of the Flood, the Torah states the earth was corrupted before G-d (Elohim), which the Zohar explains means openly, in plain sight for all to see. This is what social media allows us to, broadcast our sins in plain sight. The Torah goes on to state in Bereshit 6:11 that the earth was filled with violence.  Those times, when the sinful children of Adam ruled the world, are a reflection of our times, when even our schools are not safe and fear most often triumphs over faith.  Let us be clear: The children of Noach were supposed to be a clean start and to repopulate the earth for the reception of the Torah at Sinai. Nevertheless, some of the corrupted children of Adam survived by hiding in the land of Israel that the Zohar tells us was untouched by the flood waters.  They, the Erev Rav, the admixture with evil, were disrupted during the Tower of Babel incident, yet survived to conspire with Amalek and bring about the golden calf. Today, they rule the world and want to stop the coming tide of Binah and Moshiach.

Duped or not, all that self-inflicted hatred, judgment, and condemnation sweeping around the planet and ringing out into the spiritual realm, the Sea of Binah, must reverberate somewhere.  Even our own earthly physics tells us that every action has an equal and opposite reaction, and what goes up must come down.   Negativity does not exist above, but it does cause an impression that must be dealt with.  If we spew fire with our retweets and comments and open the floodgates with our posts, what form can we expect the natural spiritual reaction to take?

It is written that the only holiday to continue after the coming of Moshiach will be Purim so let us focus on Purim while we can. The flooding and storms in the West, in the South, Midwest and North East US are a sign of things to come, a small sample, not the main event.  And yes, freaky weather is being felt throughout the world, not just the US. It is G-d’s way to tie it to this Purim, which is also why the Dow fell 420 pts on Purim.  Do not forget the DOW fell 778 pts erev Rosh Hashannah in 2008 to start the last economic crisis. We were told there would be signs.

This year we cosmically celebrated Purim for the 5778th time since man received consciousness and as required, we read the read the Megillah Ester.  Not only does the Hebrew word for scroll Megillah (מגלה) have the numerical value 78, as in this year, 5778, and as in the initials of the Tree-0f-Life (חיים עצ) connected to this year, but the ordinal value of both the names Ester and Mordechai are each 58, the same as Noach(נח).  Moreover, while Noach was the 10th in the lineage of Adam and while the 10 initials of those 10 forefathers in that pre-flood lineage sum to 580 or 10 x 58, the reading of the Megillah Ester is about overcoming the 10 levels of negativity embodied by the 10 sons of Haman in the lineage of Amalek that were ultimately hung upon the Tree.  Most significantly, the numerical value of Biblical word for flood (מבל) is also 78.

The ordinal value of the Megillah (מגלה) Ester (אסתר) is 91, representing the powerful union of Zeir Anpin (יהוה) and Malchut (אדני), which is what the Arizal tells us that the scroll is designed to do: unite Heaven and Earth, the spiritual and physical planes in their correct order.  Moreover, Purim and the Megillah Ester are actually tools to protect us from the erev rav, the ones who built the Tower of Babel, the ones who built the golden calf, and the ones who engineered social media. They have duped us time and time again. The story of Ester starts out talking about the 7 days of the banquet in the palace of 7 beautiful treasures, the 7 chamberlains, the 7 Princes, and the 127 provinces. The number 127 is the number of recombinations that can be done with the 7 words in the Torah’s first verse and the 7 sefirot of Zeir Anpin if someone would want to reshuffle them.  Queen Vashti disobeyed the King’s order and thus he decreed that all wives throughout the kingdom must obey (honor) their husbands. What was really going on was that He (the King) was restoring order to the 7 sefirot that step down through the six masculine sefirot (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin, and terminate in the vessel-like sefira of Malchut associated with the feminine.  The pure and spiritual Ester was brought before the King in the 7th year of his reign to replace Queen Vashti.

It is for this reason that at the end of the first chapter in the Megillah Ester the King makes sure all 127 provinces understand his decree in their own languages: as He restores order He makes sure everyone understands as one.  This is juxtaposed to the Tower of Babel incident when the King made sure no one could understand one another.

As the Zohar explains, the goal of the erev rav is to create a new world order in which Malchut crowns Zeir Anpin. This would be a world in which physicality manipulates spirituality and controls the spiritual realm, giving them ultimate control and power over everything.  They call themselves illuminati, but their goal is for darkness to reign over the light, and they do that by making everyone think that the darkness they are embracing is really light.  The rule of thumb is if it tempts you, it is not light. If it is addictive, it is not light.  Their strength is in their mastery of illusion, which is why we keep getting duped. Because of the work of Ester and of Mordechai, whose name in small gematria is 42420, the 70 years of the Babylonian exile came to an end. Likewise, with the help of the Megillah Ester, the 7 lines of the 42-Letter Name, the forsaking of our chametz, and with our certainty in the Creator, the final exile will also end this year, 70 years after Israel became a nation.

The Scroll of Ester is also a warning to us that we will face utter darkness before we see the light and that it will take total certainty and faith in the Creator that the light lies beyond the darkness to not succumb to our fears.

G-d gave us Noach to warn and an Ark to save us. G-d gave us Mordechai and Ester to warn and the Megillah to save us. We’ve already been warned; this time, this year, he will give us Moshiach.

Purim, Removing the Masks, Part I: New Revelations from the Beginning

It is said that Purim will be the only holiday that we’ll celebrate after the final redemption, but if all the holidays are based on cosmic windows, what separates Purim in the grand scheme of cosmic time? There is obviously some special connection between Purim and the times of Moshiach or the sages wouldn’t have made this special distinction.  We read about Purim in the Book of Ester so that’s where we must search for the answer.

It’s known that the Book of Esther is all about concealment, which is why we celebrate it with a costume party, but like the Torah there are layers of concealment.  The Name of G-d isn’t overtly mentioned in the Book of Ester, but it is found numerous times as the initials of phrases, often as permuted versions (ie YHVH, YHHV, VHYH). The Name Ehyeh (EHYH) is also found in the same manner, as are triplets of the 42-Letter Name and the 72 Names of G-d , but these are all relatively easy to find.

As we are so close to the time of Moshiach and the end of the 70 year period from the foundation of the State of Israel, we should be able to dig deeper, we sho9uld be able to reveal even more.  After all, the Book of Ester, marked the final years of the 70-year Babylonia exile.

It’s OK to get happy and a little inebriated on Purim in order to shed your mask and reveal the inner light within you, but the Baal Shem Tov and his students got drunk on Torah on Purim and so must we if we want to reveal the inner light within the holiday, the light of Moshiach (the Messiah) and Creation.

The story begins by telling us King Ahasuerus, who ruled over 127 provinces, displayed his wealth for 180 + 7 days for a total of 187 days.

Queen Vashti, his wife and equal, held her own party with her 7 maidens for the same final 7 days. On the 7th day, Ahasuerus consulted his 7 chamberlains.

The initials of the first two were Mem and Bet, an obvious allusion to the Shem Mem Bet (42-Letter Name) and also an indication that a journey would begin, as all Torah journeys begin with the Mem-Bet. The total value of their initials is 73, the numerical value of the sefira(dimension) of Chochma (wisdom), associated with both the 42-Letter Name and the Torah’s first verse, of 7 words, whose numerical value is 2701, which is also the sum of all the integers through 73.

Please keep in mind that at the heart of the Book of Ester is about removing Amalek (kabbalistic code for doubts) from our lives in order to bring about Mashiach, the geula (final redemption) and the Tree-0f-life reality, so just in case skepticism were to creep in and ruin it for us, the Book of Ester made certain we wouldn’t miss the connection to Chochma. The ordinal value of Chochma (CChMH) is 37, which is also the ordinal value of the initials of the 7 chamberlains (MBEBEZC).  Moreover, 37 x 73, the inner and surrounding light of Chochma equals 2701.

And as if that weren’t enough to grab our attention the last two chamberlain “Zether and Carcus” add up to 913, the same as the Torah’s first word, bereshit.

Oh, and by the way, those 187 days of display are analogous to the 187 chapters in the Torah, as are the 5 Parts of the Book of Esther analogous to the 5 Books of the Torah.

While the sages tell us Queen Ester was an incarnation of Sarah, the Matriarch, who live 127 years, 127 is also the number of ways any 7 items can be permuted, such as the 7 words in the Torah’s first verse, the 7 lines in the 42-Letter Name matrix, or the 7 dimensions (sefirot) in Zeir Apin, the ladder between Heaven and Earth to which both of them are associated.

We’re only at the 10th verse of the first of 10 chapters in the Book of Esther, an oft overlooked part except to the kabbalists, yet the 10 chapters in themselves is a hint that the Book of Esther may be about the necessary rectification of the 10 sefirot that comprise the Tree-of-life.

This 10th verse begins with  “On the 7th day, when the Kings heart was merry with wine” but let’s break that down, the 7th day is analogous to Shabbat, the 7th and final day of creation and “the King” to Hashem (G-d), and k’tov (was merry) has the numerical value of 37 once again and literally say was good, so the inner light of wisdom was good–the timing was right. The heart of the king (LV-HMLC) has the numerical value 127 once again, indicating that the timing was right to bridge the gap between Heaven and Earth, and with wine (B’YYN) can be understood as “in 70“. Thus the story is really telling us that in 70 years, the timing will be right for the re-establishment of the Tree-of-life reality, just as it was right for Ezra to bring the Israelites home from Persia after their 70 years of exile.

If you like how the Book of Ester’s revelations have begun you’ll love how it ends. In the next installment, we’ll reveal how the Hamelehk (The King) and the names of the other characters in the Purim story all reveal the same date for Moshiach’s manifestation.

Stay tuned for Part II

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.
