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.

Metatron in the Beginning and in the End of Days.

Metatron in the Beginning and in the End

Out next Chanukah revelation concerns the archangel Metatron (MTTRVN) of numerical value 314. The sages, tzaddikim and Zohar all tell us he was originally Enoch (ChNVC), the 7th in the lineage of Adam.

Zohar 43. Balak : 6.

Verse 86. “Enoch, who is Metatron,”

We can see from the following verses in the Torah that it was never stated that Enoch dies, only that he walked with God and was taken.

Genesis 5:23-24 “All of Enoch’s days were 365 years. Enoch walked with God, and was no more, because God had taken him.

These Zohar excerpts give it more color and speak of all the secrets that were revealed to Enoch and that subsequently were guarded by Mettatron and then revealed on a need-to-know basis.

Zohar Bereshit 51 474. “We have also been told that Chanoch had a book, which originated from the same place as that of the generations of Adam. And this book contains the inner secrets of wisdom. He was taken from this earth to become a heavenly angel. Thus, it is written: ‘And he was not; for Elohim took him’ (Beresheet 5:24). He is the youth, THAT IS, HE IS ALWAYS CALLED A YOUTH, as the verse states: ‘Train up (Heb. chanoch) a child in the way he should go’ (Mishlei 22:6), INDICATING THAT CHANOCH IS THE YOUTH BECAUSE HE BECAME MINISTERING LAD TO THE SHECHINAH.

475. All the supernal secrets were delivered into his hands and he, in turn, delivered them to those who merited them. Thus, he performed the mission THAT THE HOLY ONE, BLESSED BE HE, ASSIGNED TO HIM. One thousand keys were delivered into his hands and he takes one hundred blessings every day and creates unifications for his Master. The Holy One, blessed be He, took him from this world so that he would serve him above. The text refers to this when it reads: ‘And he was not; for Elohim took him.’

476. Since it was given to him, it is called the book of Chanoch. When the Holy One, blessed be He, took him, He showed him all the supernal mysteries, including the mystery of the Tree of Life, with its leaves and branches in the middle of the garden. We find all those secrets in his book, ALL THAT ELOHIM SHOWED HIM WHEN HE TOOK HIM TO HEAVEN. Happy are those of exalted piety to whom the supernal wisdom has been revealed and from whom it will never be forgotten, as it is written: ‘The secret of Hashem is with them that fear him; and he will reveal to them his covenant’ (Tehilim 25:14).”

As we’ll get into in a moment, it is no coincidence that Enoch was the 7th in the line of Adam, or that he lived 365 years, with 365 being universally agreed as a reference to the solar year.

So who is Metatron?

Zohar 49. Ki Tetze : 28: 138. “It is so THAT METATRON IS SHADAI when the Holy One, blessed be He, descends TO BRIYAH to rule over the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, good being Metatron and evil Samael, who is a devil, the king of demons. Metatron is an angel, the king of angels, but from the aspect of the Tree of Life the name Shadai is Yesod OF ATZILUT..” [the gateway to the uppermost world].

Shadai is the name of G-d (ShDY) found on all Mezuzot which the Jews place on their doorposts. It has the same numerical value as Metatron, 314, as guardian of the gates.

We’ll reinforce the connection from the Zohar linking Enoch (Metatron) as governor ,if you will, of the 7 sefirot (Zeir Anpin/Malchut) and particularly as guardian of the entrance way through Yesod, but for an understanding of the deepest hidden secrets we need to turn to the Tikkune Zohar, chapter 22 of the 70 chapters revealing the 70 faces of Creation.

It’s in the Tikkunei Zohar that we learn that the 6 letters of the Name Metatron (MTtTtRVN) should be expanded into a matrix of 42, similar to the 42-Letter Name of God (Ana B’koach).  In this case, the matrix would be comprised of the name Metatron (MTtTtRVN) and then the name stretched out over the subsequent 6 dimensions, something like this:

MTt Tt R  V  N




R  R  R  R  R  R

V  V  V  V  V  V

N  N  N  N N N

In The Genesis Prayer and Nothing is Random in the Universe we discuss in great depth the secrets of 42, Pi (314) and their connection to the Torah’s first verse and also the revelations of the advent of Moshiach in 5778, so we won’t go into it again here, other than to point out again that the number 9/(42-letter Name) = exactly 70 + 3.14159..(Pi).

What we do want to reveal is that while the name Metatron has the numerical value of 314, this 42 letter name of Metatron has a total numerical value of 2198, or 7 x 314.

And why is this significant?

It’s not just because 314+ 42 = 358, the numerical value of Mashiach, of that the Torah has exactly 358 phrases of the numerical value 314, indelibly connecting Moshiach with Metatron, but because there are precisely 2198 letter Zayin(s) in the Torah and the numerical value of Zayin is 7.

Speaking of 7, Zohar Bereshit 1:4. tells us why 7 is so important: “There are seven sacred chambers and seven levels above, which are the secrets of supernal faith, NAMELY BINAH. And there are seven chambers below, IN MALCHUT, similar to those above, IN BINAH. Six of these chambers are just as they are above, CORRESPONDING TO THE SIX SFIROT OF ZEIR ANPIN, but one CHAMBER, CORRESPONDING TO BINAH, IS hidden and concealed.”

Keep in mind that this hidden chamber corresponds to the 7th millennium and the time of Moshiach when Binah Chamber will be open to us.

And at the end of the description of the 7 chambers, the Zohar (Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai) has this further to say about the 7th:

Zohar Bereshit B 19:53. “The same can be found in the seven compartments of the lower land, which are all similar to the SEVEN COMPARTMENTS of the world above. And in all OF THE SEVEN COMPARTMENTS BELOW, there are ANGELS in the shape of humans,…” Not, just Metatron, but we’ll be writing about this shortly as well: how the angels have intervened at key points to keep us on track.

Let’s recap:

A) Enoch was the 7th in the line of Adam: of which Noach was the 10th, an allusion to the completion of 10 sefirot/dimensions; Abraham was the 20th, an allusion to Keter (Esrim, 20); and Moses was the 26th, an allusion to the YHVH (26); so obviously placement is important and not random..

B) Enoch became Metatron of numerical value 314, and thus connected to Pi, which makes a line into a circle, which we know from Rav Ashlag’s work on the 10 Luminous Emanations is how the light enters and fills our universe.

C) Metatron controls the 7 dimensions and gates from our would to the upper ones.  We also know from Abraham, the Patriach in his Sefer Yetzirah, that there are 22 building blocks of the universe, namely the 22 Hebrew letters, 7 of which are called doubles and 7 of which connect us to the 7 planets, and that 22/7 = 3.14..

D) We know that both 314 and 42 are connected together to each other and that they connect us to Creation and that the 42-Letter Name, is like Metatron, our bridge between our world and the upper ones, namely Binah.

E) We know that 314 and 42, and thus Metatron are connected to Moshiach, 358.

F) We know that the name Metatron(MTtTtRVN) expands into 42 letters totaling 2198 or 314 x 7, and that there are 2198 letter Zayin(s) in the Torah and the numerical value of Zayin is 7, meaning the entire Torah was written (conceived) with Metatron in mind, and that there is probably a deeper hidden meaning to 2198 as well, behind the total gematria of the Torah letters being 21009826.

G) Enoch’s (Metatron’s physical) life is connected to 365 years or days as in year, there may be a connection to the end-of-day and the advent of Moshiach that he is obviously connected with. Incidentally, 365 is 7 more than 358, an important point not to be overlooked.

H) If 2198 were a year, it would be 2198 CE, or 5958, 42 years shy of the year 6000 HC, and the 7th millennium. Therefore since the 42 letter of Metatron including the kolel are 2198 + 42 = 2240, they are also equivalent to the year 6000 HC.

So why are there 2 dates, 5778 and 6000 for the advent of Moshiach?

Why indeed? The period between the two prophesied dates is 222 years? So let’s go back to the Zohar and see why there are two dates and why they are 222 years apart. We’ll give you another explanation gleaned from the Torah portion Miketz later in the week.

21. Trumah : 56. Verse 598. If you ask: Metatron serves in the Tabernacle above AND NOT MICHAEL? HE ANSWERS: The tabernacle is of Metatron and Michael the High Priest is the one who serves in the Tabernacle of Metatron, as the High Priest serves above in another Tabernacle that is concealed and not revealed, which is the secret of the World to Come, WHICH IS BINAH. There are two tabernacles. One is concealed, BINAH, and one is the Tabernacle of Metatron. There are two priests, MEANING THE ATTRIBUTES OF CHESED THAT IS CALLED ‘PRIEST’. One is the primordial light, NAMELY CHESED OF ZEIR ANPIN, and one is Michael, the High Priest below.

We know there are 2 Moshiachs (Bed David and Ben Joseph) so we understand that there are 2 Tabernacles to be reveled,  one through Metatron in the year 6000 HC, as has been discussed, and the other through Michael, Archangel and protector of Israel, which according to prophecy will be in 5778, 70 years after Israel became a nation.

Therefore 6000 years will be the full length of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.

As for the 222 year differential we must first look to the name of the beast.

Zohar 42. Chukat : 5:29.” AFTER ZEIR ANPIN AND MALCHUT DRINK, ‘they give to drink to every wild beast’ that which is written: ‘and from thence it was parted, and branched into four streams (lit. ‘heads’)’ (Beresheet 2:10). These four heads are ‘every wild (lit. ‘field’, Heb. sadai) beast,’… which is METATRON that receives and perfects IN HIMSELF the Name from Yesod, the Foundation of the world. This is SINCE THE NAME SHADAI IS IN YESOD OF ZEIR ANPIN, AND METATRON, BEING A CHARIOT TO YESOD OF ZEIR ANPIN, RECEIVES THIS NAME.”

Keep in mind that the Torah counts the time to the final redemption in jubilee years (50-year interval) and there are exactly 66.6 jubilee years from the reception of the 10 Commandments at Mt Sinai, until 5778 and 70.2 jubilee years from that date (2448) until 2198 CE. 702 is the gematria value of Shabbat, the 7th day, which is what the period of the final redemption is called.

So what about the 222 years?

In  Zohar 44. Pinchas : 45. “The Chariot of EzekielVerse 248. “When Ezekiel saw the Shechinah among the Klipot, THAT IS TO SAY, AMONG THE GARMENTS, he saw with her ten Sfirot, without any separation whatsoever, and these are the brain that is among all of them. He saw them within the earthly river K’var (Caf Bet Resh) [222], NAMELY, THE EARTHLY CHARIOT (RESH CAF BET) [222], NAMELY, THE LETTERS OF K’VAR REARRANGED) OF METATRON.

So Metatron is the Chariot, as previously defined in the Zohar, and the value of chariot is 222, meaning Metatron will rule over the earthly plain another 222 years past the time of Moshiach Ben David in 5778.

The same Zohar portion continues as it reveals yet another equation about Metatron and the end-of-days, “That is, ‘The Chariots of Elohim are twice ten thousand, thousands upon (Heb. Shin’an) thousands’ (Tehilim 68:18). ‘twice ten thousand’ are twenty thousand. From this you should deduct two that are missing, AS SHIN’AN IS SPELLED THE SAME AS ‘SHE’EINAN’ (MISSING). ‘(SHIN’AN) THOUSANDS’ ARE THE MISSING TWO THOUSANDS. Eighteen thousand remain, which is as the number of the eighteen (Chet Yud) worlds. THIS IS YESOD, WHICH IS CALLED ‘CHAI’ (LIT. ‘LIVE’ – CHET YUD,), which includes the ten Sfirot, attired in the Tet Tet (nine + nine = eighteen) of Metatron (Mem Tet Tet Resh Vav Nun). And this Tet Tet is taken from the word totafot (lit. ‘frontlets’), about which it is said: ‘and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes’ (Devarim 6:8). Who are the eyes? They are those above, about which it is said: ‘the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of Elohim’ (Yechezkel 1:1). These are the ten visions of Metatron, whom Ezekiel saw as a candle within a lantern, nine OF THE VISIONS being clear, with one being vague.”

Take the 2000, (SHIN’AN THOUSANDS” ARE THE MISSING TWO THOUSANDS), then add the “attired in the Tet Tet (nine + nine = eighteen),” 18, and we get 2018. Then take the 2018 and add the NAMELY, THE EARTHLY CHARIOT (RESH CAF BET), the Chariots of Elohim, 222, and we get 2240, the year 6000 HC.

This date of 6000 HC is very significant as will be revealed in our next installment of Chanukah revelations about the 2 dates for the windows of the Tree-of-Life consciousness.  Obviously whether you work towards Moshiach in 7 years time or in 229 years makes a big difference.

To be continued…

Happy Chanukah
