A Sign in the Sky

For 20 years we have been writing about the confluence of calendars that is to come when the year 5778 meets 2018.  The first time we were at 2018 was in the Hebrew Calendar 3760 years ago. This when G-d made the Covenant of Halves with Abraham, splitting the offerings half on one side, half on the other.  The confluence will happen this week. It will be marked by the largest Super Moon of the year this Jan 1-2, and by the Earth being the closest to Sun on Jan 3-4.  The process is beginning…

The largest and brightest Supermoon on recent record was on Jan 26, 1948, 70 years ago, the year Israel became a nation.  1948 in the Hebrew Calendar was when Abraham was born.

From the 28 times in Ecclesiastes 3:2-8 we see the obvious juxtaposition to easy times and difficult ones, 14 on either side, like 2 hands. It is also like the sum of the 365 positive and 248 negative precepts in the Torah: 3+6+5+2+4+8 = 28, split 14 positive and 14 negative. What is only obvious in the Hebrew text is the juxtaposition between the words for time, (ועת and  עת) so similar to the placement of G-d’s hands in the Torah’s first 28 letter verse at (ואת and  את). One has the Aleph (א) of numerical value 1 and the other Ayin (ע) of numerical value 70. In the beginning 1 and at the end 70; there is a time to every purpose under heaven.  The numerical value of (ועת and  עת) plus the kolel for the 2 times equals 948. This is similar to 1948 when we add the Aleph (1000), which is 70 years prior to 2018 CE or 5778 HC.

At digit 948 within the telling first 1000 digits in Pi, there is string of numbers …5778185778 that include 2 of the three appearances of the number 5778 within those 1000 digits.  Why 2 times? Why 2 juxtaposed 5778’s? Will there be 2 different scenarios for time after 5778? Within those 1000 digits there is no string for 2018, but there are three of 2019. Two back to back years represented unfathomably within a mere 1000 digits, representing 2 entwined calendars, one an end of time, the other a beginning of a new time. But for whom. Who witnesses the end of time and who the beginning?

Much has been revealed about Pi, Phi and 18 in our books and previous articles and there is still much more that needs to be revealed.  One item of note that we have not yet revealed even beyond the 42-Letter Name giving us 9/.123049…= 73.1415777 or (70 + pi). And even beyond the Genesis Equation built into the Torah’s first verse of 28 letters that gives us Pi as 3.141545078… And even beyond the Zohar’s unfathonable secret about Pi is simply that Pi/2 or 3.14159265358…/2 = 1.5708, which gives us the year Israel became a nation in 5708 HC (1948 CE) 70 years ago this May.

Happy New Years to All, as this New Years is marked by both Calendars and by Hashem in our Skies, both by Day and by Night, a sign for all to see.

The 70 Nations Are Going Down; The Battle Has Begun

In a brief continuation from Fish, Fowl, and Nuclear Radiation, Symptoms, Not Signs, we’d like to add a couple insights from this week’s short 67 verse Torah portion, Tazria, and the corresponding teachings of the Arizal enlightenment.

Binah, the sefira (dimension) of understanding, one of the upper 3, has the numerical value 67, which is the first clue that this portion contains some important hidden “understanding” for us.

Let’s first note that the portion begins with and is all about the uncleanliness (spiritual impurity) that resulted from the snake’s intimate relations with Eve, which created the separation of Jew and Gentile souls and the admixture of good and evil in Eve’s womb. That said, we once again are faced with the battle of good vs evil in the power of the Cohen (HCHN) vs the plague (h’negah, HNGA).

As we said in our ultimate article about the events playing out this year around the world, the symptoms all point to problems in the critical sefira of Yesod of Zeir Anpin.

On the side of good we have the Cohen(HCHN), of standard numerical value 80, the same as Yesod (YSVD) gematria, and of complete gematria sofit value of 777, as in 5777 (2017 CE).

On the side of evil we have the plague (NGY) of numerical value 123 and ordinal value 33 for a complete value of 156, the same as Joseph whose energy is associated with Yesod.

Now, according to the Arizal this battle is played out by the dark angel Samael, who we showed to be connected to the current events, and who is in charge of the supernal princes of the 70 nations, and by Michael, who is guardian of Israel and who presides over the 70 sages of the Great Assembly, corresponding to the 70 souls of Jacob.

The good news is that the word for the Cohen(HCHN) is found 57 times in this portion, up to and including the 107th times this word is used in the Torah, and as we’ve written about extensively, the sum of all the positive integers through 107 is 5778. And note that HaCohen is the only word in the Torah tied to the word Moshiach, the Messiah.

The word for plague (negah, NGA) is found 13 times in this portion, and 13 is the numerical value of love, ahava. Together the occurrences in this portion of the Cohen(HCHN) and plague (negah, NGA) are found 70 times, connecting this battle to the epic one that has already begun.

If we look at the word for plague in this portion with all its prefixes, such “the plague (HNGA)” and “and the plague (VHNGA), there are 31 more, making 44 in total, as in Dam, blood, the first of the 10 Plagues in Egypt.

However, 44 occurrence of “plagues” and 57 of “the Cohen” total 101 together, as in the numerical value of the archangel Michael, the angelic personification of chesed, all that is good.

What is this plague? The Torah was referring to a condition that existed only while the Tabernacle and Holy Temple existed. Today it might refer to any number of afflictions.  The only thing we know is that Fukushima Daiichi continually spewing toxic radiation into the atmosphere cant be good, and that the fish and bird kills are both symptoms of what ails us and signs that our environment is not healthy.

The Arizal explains that 70 years is the maximum number of The Divine Calendaryears of suffering that an individual can be decreed.  If we extrapolate that to a Nation we see that the Babylonian exile of the Jewish nation lasted exactly 70 years and that the year 5778 (2017-18  ce) will be the 70th year of the Israeli nation, formed in 5708 (1948 CE).

The upheaval throughout the Mid-East and the dethroning of their rulers is because the 70 supernal princes are falling one by one.  As above, so goes below.

The spiritual concept of time is a more spatial one and therefore 7 days, 7 years and 70 years are all cut from the same cloth, so when this portion also speaks about the baby boy transcending the 7 days and being circumcised on the 8th, the tzaddikim understood this to mean the 7 years of the birth pangs of the Moshiach and the fulfillment of his brit (Covenant) in the 8th year.

7 years from 2011, when the nations started falling, is 2018, and ironically, it was in 2018 HC that G-d made His Covenant with Abraham, 70 years after he was born.

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.

The Ten Commandments Part VII: Adam, Noach, Moses and the End of Days

…Continued from The Ten Commandments

Our last article was about straightening out the 5 portion, 22,000 letter, section of the Torah’s time line concerning the giving of the Ten Commandments,  the incident of the golden calf, and the two times Moses brought down the 2 Tablets. In this article, we”ll begin tying it all together.

Adam, Noach, Moses and the End of Days

As we said the people saw to it that the Tree-of-life conscious never  took root. But what did happen, though, was that G-d had to start all over again with these people. In paragraph 125, Exodus 32:9-10 “G-d then said to Moses, “I have observed the people and they are an unbending (stiff-neck) group. Now do not try to stop me when I unleash my wrath against them to destroy them. I will then make you into a great nation.”

Here is a deep secret: The words “great nation” L’Goy Gadol (LGVY GDVL) permute into Yud Gilgul (YVD GLGVL), “10 reincarnations, “one for each of the 10 Commandments.

Could it be that the Torah is hinting to us that Moses (H’Moshiach) will reincarnate 10 times?

Moses could have chosen to be like Noach, the 10th generation from Adam and preside over a new beginning, but Moses was the 26th generation of Adam, connected to the YHVH of value 26.

This connection between Noach and Moses is more than casual. G-d’s wrath was revealed to Moses in paragraph 125 of Exodus and to Noach in paragraph 25, when in Genesis 6:13 “God said to Noach, ‘The end of all flesh has come before me. The world is filled with crime. I will therefore destroy them with the earth’.” It was only a few verses earlier when in Genesis 6:3 “God said, ‘My spirit will not continue to judge man forever, since he is nothing but flesh. His days shall be 120 years’.” The word flesh (BShR) is found 58 times in the Torah, the same as the numerical value of Noach.

And who lived for 120 years? Moses did.  Moreover, the Torah mentions no one else who lived for 120 years to fulfill G-d’s statement. And lets not forget that Noach had to endure for 40 days and 40 night immersed in water to cleanse mankind and the earth, and Moses also 40 days and 40 nights immersed in the clouds on Sinai to do the same.

The Torah is drawing these parallels for a reason. G-d gave us the 120 years of Moses (H’Mashiach) in flesh. Bnei Noach (BNY NCh) also has the value of 120, so it’s not surprising that G-d’s announcement about his wrath was found in Genesis 6:13, which hints at the 613 precepts that Moses would bring, and if you add the 7 Noahide precepts, we get 613 + 7 = 620, keter, a relationship many a sage has pointed out in relation to the 620 letters of the 10 Commandments.

This is all evidence as well in that the yud Gilgul (10 reincarnations or 10 revolvings) also refer to the 10 generations from Adam to Noach.

Furthermore, each of the 28 generations from 2448, when the Ten Commandments were given, to 5778 (2018 ce), the date prophesied for Moshiach lasted 120 years, while the first 26 generations through Moses lasted 93 years each on average. What this means is that the 54 generations from Adam to Moshiach lasted an average of 107 years, and since the sum of the integers from 1 to 107 = 5778, it all makes perfect sense. Spiritually, it always did.

26 + 28 = 54 generations

(26 x 93) + (28 x 120) = 54 x 107 = 5778 years

Please note that it is 91.0 years.generation for the 26 generations until Moses birth. The average is exactly 93 years, when Moses life is split into 70 years and his last 50 years or 58 and 42% respectively, in line with the Noach (58) connection, and the  not coincidental significance of the 42-Letter Name (necessary for the geula), the final 70 year period from Israeli Statehood in 5708 to 5778, and the 50-year jubilee period.

But the most significant parallel to draw from this Moshe(MShH)-Noach (NCh) connection is the correction of the snake (nachash, NChSh) and Adam/Man (EDM). When we combine the letters in their 2 names (MShH-NCh) they permute to NChSh, which is Nachash, snake and mah (MH), which has the same numerical value as Adam (45) and, according to the Zohar, it is also the aspect of the G-d’s name (YVD HE VEV HE) that is called M’H of value 45, and which represents both Man (ADM) and the 6 sefirot of Zeir Anpin.

And because nachash has the numerical value of 358, this correction will brings us Mashiach (358). Moreover, 45 is also the gematria of Geula (GEVLH), the final redemption.  So while the price paid was high, in the end we’ll get the Messiah and the final redemption.

Nevertheless, it also warns us what we have to overcome for Moses (Mashiach) to come again and bring the geula. The snake always finds a way, different every time, to work his way in and make us lose our focus.

Adam blew the opportunity to stay in the Tree-of-life reality, and 1658 years and 10 generations later, the Flood waters covered the earth, and we began anew. In 2448, we blew the opportunity once again. Thus we were given 66.6 jubilee years and/or 10 incarnations to reincarnate in flesh to find the means to summon the Tree-of-life back into our lives.

The phrase “End of days” found in the Zohar Trumah 143, is in Hebrew “Ketz H’Yamim (KZ HYMYM)“. It has the sofit gematria value of 1665, and if we take away the kolel of the 7 letters we get 1658, the year of the Flood, and if we add 1 instead for the kolel we get 1666, the year the generation of Shabtai Tzvi thought Moshiach was coming. But we also get 666, the numerical value of “the days,” and 1000 for “End.”

The end is the beginning since alef (ELP), the first letter, is also teh word elef, “one thousand (1000),” a concept that keeps coming up in spirituality and in many of our blogs.  It’s pure gematria-the observance and measure of similarity of form. Just like the geula and Adam having the same gematria.

Have doubts about the Adam-Noach-Moshe connection?

Please note then that Moses passed on after 120 years in 2488, just before the Israelites entered the Promised Land and Noach’s Flood occurred in 1658. The relationship between them gives us

1658/2488 = .666.

The flood occurred .666 of the way from Adam to Moshe’s death in the flesh.

Also 2488/5778 = 430, as in the 430 years from the Covenant with Abraham in 2018 to 2448 when the 10 Commandments were issued, which again comes full circle as 2018 CE = 5778 HC. And just to top it off, a circle has 360 degrees and 1658 + 360 = 2018.

To be continued shortly with Part VIII.
