What is Time?

Do you take the Earth, Moon and Sun for granted? I did, until recently. Like most people, I assumed physics and random chance played some role in their creation. Then again, like most of us, until recently I thought our news was real. Fake news is the least of our issues.  That, at least, is created by man and controlled by men trying to manipulate us. Our universe, our solar system, the Earth, Moon and Sun are an entire different story, on a much larger scale, an enormous scale if you consider that our inner solar system is 186 million miles wide. Nothing of what I thought about them is real, yet the true reality has been available to us in every scientific journal; we just never thought to look. What you are about to changed my perception of the universe and our place in it forever.  I am going to piece it together for you as best I can in this brief article, using only the scientific facts readily available to all of us. Nevertheless, the purpose of these revelations is not to shock, nor is it to shatter the reality that we have all mutually constructed; it is to show us that there are back door escape hatches built into that reality, that the system was designed for us to uncover and harness it, while there is still time.


Time itself is an  interesting concept, marked solely by the turning of the Earth, and its orbit around the Sun. Every time the Earth spins around another day has past, every time the Earth orbits the Sun another year has past. This is the 5778th year in the Hebrew Calendar, and for 5778 years the Earth has been orbiting the Sun at 66,600 mph. Yes, that is a scientific fact. and yes it is 666, and while prophecies ancient and modern call for this year to be the “end of days (end of time)” this 666 does not represent some apocalyptic mark of a beast. It represents the knowledge of 666, ancient and modern. That said, this is also the 66.6th jubilee year from when 600,000 men received the 10 Commandments at Mt. Sinai in the Hebrew year 2448.  So before we get too deep, since the moment the 600,000 Israelite Men (3.6 million Israelites in total) stood at Sinai, the Earth has circled the Sun at 66,600 mph, marking time for us for exactly 66.6 jubilee years.

When the Earth revolves around its equator we get morning, then night, one day.  When the Sun revolves around its equator we don not notice much. Yet, for all those 2448 years the Sun has been revolving at its equator, oddlyenough, in a 24.48 day cycle, meaning it completed one revolution every 24.48 days.  Therefore, in those first 2448 years that the Bible told us to start counting, the Sun spun on its axis 36,525 times, meaning that its rotation was set to match the 365.25 day annual orbit of the Earth around the it.  Moreover, since our Earth rotates completely in 24 hours, or 1 day, the Earth rotates exactly 24.48 times faster than the Sun. Again, these are all scientific facts that can be readily googled yet were never taught to us in school, and while they can be dismissed as coincidental, the Torah is 3330 years old and it chronicles clearly the 2448 year date.  And if you do not believe in G-d, the Creator, or some Divine force, you will have to come up for some other explanation since Man, 3330 years ago, could not have calculated the Sun’s rotation or the Earth’s speed through space.

There is another ancient book, the Zohar, written 1900 years ago, still long before Man could make any of these calculations.  In this divinely inspired set of books ancient knowledge has been compiled and channeled, including many of the prophecies calling for this year to be the so-called end-of-days.  Specifically, it is said to happen at the end of the 70-year period  from the formation of Israel becoming a nation in 1948.  So when the Zohar tells us about that 70-year period or that there are 70 faces (levels of understanding of the Torah) its author, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, would not have known about the Earth’s 66,600 mph orbit, or that mathematically speaking, there are exactly 70 factors of the number 66,600.  He did not have Google after all.

And yet, the author of the Torah knew to place the revelation of the 10 Commandments at the 70th chapter and split them so that there would be 50 chapters in Genesis–akin to the jubilee period–and 20 in Exodus so that the 10 Commandments would end in Exodus 20:18 with Moses disappearing into the mist to receive the Torah.  G-d, or whoever you think created the Torah, must have planned it to coincide with the year 2018 CE, or 70 years after 1948 CE.

Those 66.6 jubilee years, each a 50-year interval, as specified in the Torah, are actually 3330 calendar years so it is probably not coincidental the Sun is actually 333,000 times more massive than the Earth.  The Torah commanded us to count in 50-year intervals starting in 2448.  The Zohar (Book of Splendor) explained that “jubilee” is Binah and that Binah has 50 Gates, and that what we are counting toward is the reckoning with Binah, the higher spiritual dimension associated with the World to Come.

One fact neither the Torah, not the Zohar mentioned was that the surface temperature of the Sun is exactly 5778 degrees Kelvin, meaning that the life-giving surface temperature of the Sun marks the end of the 66.6 jubilee year period, the same 3330 years marked by the difference in size of the Sun and the Earth from 2448 to 5778. If I were making this up, it would be a great beginning to a Dan Brown novel, yet this is all very real.  This enormous time-keeping system seems to be tuned precisely to coincide with the Torah, the Zohar and prophecies counting from Adam to Moshiach (the Messiah), yet this is only the beginning.  These were just the first facts I stumbled upon.

And while there were 600,000 men standing at Mt Sinai back in 2448, there were probably 3.6 million people in total, including the women, children and not including the accompanying mixed multitudes. The Book in which we were commanded to count those jubilee 50-year intervals is the Torah, which as we said was given to us in the year 2448, and which has exactly (600,000-408) component letters.  Scholars, sages and kabbalists have all noted the connection between the 600,000 men and the supposed 600,000 letters of the Torah, which only makes sense when we realize the 27, or , Hebrew letters are broken down into exactly 50 component letters that when multiplied by each letter occurrence in the Torah works out to (600,000 – 408) letters.  This is relevant to us because 408 x 6 = 2448 and because multiple times the Zohar specifically mentions a period of 408 years leading up to the End of Days.  We will discuss that period in our next article; nevertheless, the square root of 408 is 20.19, as in 2019 CE, one year from now and the beginning of a new dawn.

Does all this seem contrived? It is not; these are scientific facts, ones that can only be calculated today with computers and advanced scientific instruments.  They are also in the palms of our hands and on the back of our wrists. Our scientific understanding of the universe has advanced in leaps and bounds, yet for the last few hundred years those advances have served to distance us from our spiritual development.  With the speeding up of technological development over the last few decades, this movement away from true spiritual beliefs has accelerated to the point where most everything is now upside down and backward. I did not understand until this moment why Rav Berg kept referring to how the eye sees images in our brains and minds: upside down and backward.  The more science advanced the more we became glued to the physical realm with thousands (now trillions) of data points becoming our entire world.  Do your kids look out the window or into their phones? It is time we turn the tables. Using only scientific facts about our solar system we can show that there is nothing random or unplanned about our existence. It was all premeditated and for a purpose.

Earth revolves 24.48 faster than the Sun

In the first 2448 Years the Sun revolved 36525 times

The Earth orbits the Sun in 365.25 days

The Sun is 5778° K

The truth is that in our corner of the galaxy, contrary to common belief, speed, time and distance are not only related but integrated.  Scientists would tell us that this numerical relationship between the Sun’s size and the Earth’s size are purely coincidental, as is the relationship with their speed and their rotations, their temperatures too.  As for the historic and Biblical dates and their relationship to these self-same numbers, just more coincidence. We can stick our heads in the sand and believe that too, but it will not stop the clock from ticking. It will not stop this once in all time alignment from occurring this year.  As Rav Berg would often say, “there is no ‘time, space and motion’ they are one,” and as Rav Ashlag explained, in the spiritual realm distance is measured by similarity of form, not physical separation (i.e. 3330 and 333000 are nearly identical, while 3325 and 3330 could be worlds apart). Therefore, these relationships between the giant moving parts of our universe, whether it be the mass of a planet or the time it takes for it to revolve, or the speed that it is hurtling through space are not casual at all.  They represent a unity of purpose and intent.

Plainly speaking, they were purposely designed that way. It was no accident. And if it was done on purpose then someone had a purpose in doing so. And if so, it behooves us to figure out that purpose; after all, we are the ones trapped in that system, a system that is set to the number and year 5778, this year.

The Tilt

The search for how this artificial system that governs our lives works took me to the tilt in the Earth’s axis. As it orbits the Sun at 66,600 mph, the Earth also tilts toward it at 23.4 degrees, which means it also tilts away at 66.6˚.  Assuming the Earth is spherical and thus 360˚ round, it can be divided into four 90-degree quadrants stretching from the Poles to the Equator, and each 90˚quadrant is necessarily divided by the tilt into two parts, 23.4˚ and (90˚ – 23.4˚) or 66.6˚.  that tilt away.

Thousands of years ago without a telescope, tape measure, or calculator the Kabbalists divinely determined that the greater universe was divided into 10 dimensions.  The upper 3 were purely spiritual, the lowest one, where we reside, is a world of illusion, and the other 6 are bundled together as a ladder to Heaven and are collectively referred to as Zeir Anpin.  These same kabbalists and the Zohar also refer to the Sun as Zeir Anpin.  Thousands of years later, our physicists came to the same conclusion and have determined that we do indeed inhabit a greater 10-dimensional universe with some of the them bundled together as tightly would string. They refer to this as String Theory. 

The Zohar explains that the 6 spiritual dimensions that make up Zeir Anpin are represented by the number 6 for the 6 directions that make up the 3-dimensional world that we live in. They further tell us that Zeir Anpin is also represented by the ineffable Name of G-d (יהוה), which is spiritually associated with this dimension. Each Hebrew letter has an assigned value based on its energy frequency and the collective value of the letters in the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) is 26.  So given that and given that 23.4 and 66.6 are complementary angles, can it also be coincidental that 23.4˚ is precisely 26% of the full 90˚ angle, or that the Earth’s 23.4˚ tilted axis rotates against the backdrop of the constellations once every 26,000 years? This rotation is known as the precession of the equinoxes .

So given that whoever created our universe wanted G-d’s Name associated with the Earth’s tilt, we further find that (26 – 23.4) equals 2.6 or 10% of 26, which means that 23.4 is 90% of 26, thus relating the Earth’s tilt to G-d’s Name and the 90˚ right angle that defines our 3-dimensional universe.

The numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) is 26

Our 3-d universe is defined by the right angle, 90˚

The Earth’s axis is tilted 23.4˚

(90˚ – 23.4˚) or 66.6˚

(26 – 23.4) = 2.6

23.4 is 90% of 26

The precession of the equinoxes is 26,000 years

That 23.4˚ tilt of the Earth’s axis also means that the Earth’s direct angle to the Sun is 23.4˚ at the North Pole and 66.6˚ at the Equator, which is why the latitude of the North and South Poles are 66.6˚

Let us now examine the relationship between the angle 66.6° and 23.4° a little further. While we might roll our eyes that 23.4 is 432 backwards, we cannot ignore the fact that 66.623.4 = 43.2.

Moreover, 23.4 is .6 less than 24 hours, One day, matching the 6 hours before the first Shabbat that Adam sinned at the behest of the serpent, and also the 6 hours the Israelites did not wait for Moses to return with the tablets at the behest of the Erev Rav. Those 6 hours equate to 6 x 60 x 60 or 21600 seconds, an allusion to the Moon’s diameter, 2160 miles.  All the allusions to 216 alight on the sefira of gevurah of numerical value 216, signifying judgement. The Zohar tells us that our world was created in judgement and sustained by mercy, as in the allusions to 432. So while 234 and 432 are complimentary parts of 666, the 432 allusion to Binah is the spiritual reason the Earth is tilted off its strict axis by 23.4˚, thus binding it to the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) by way of the value 26 as described above.  Thus mercy was injected into the strict judgement of Creation, and instead of burning up we were allowed to develop and find our way to this threshold of choice.

234 + 432 = 666


גַּם כִּי-אֵלֵךְ בְּגֵיא צַלְמָוֶת, לֹא-אִירָא רָע– כִּי-אַתָּה עִמָּדִי;
שִׁבְטְךָ וּמִשְׁעַנְתֶּךָ, הֵמָּה יְנַחֲמֻנִי. Tehilim 23:4

This whole recent process of cosmic discovery for me began with the number 23 and the first thing that came to mind was Psalm 23.  Now deep into the process it has come back around, thanks to the rod and staff in Pslam 23.4, the most famous line in all of David’s Psalms. By the way, the exact midpoint in King David’s 70-year life is the exact midpoint in the 5778 years from Adam (אדם) to Moshiach, which is why the ancient kabbalists told us:

ADAM (אדם) stands for Adam-David-Moshiach  (א–ד–ם)
0 – 2889 -5778

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me;
Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.-Psalm 23:4


Even the longitude and latitude measures of our continents can be shown to be 66.6˚ at the widest and longest points, and the measure from the top of Mt Everest to the surface of the Dead Sea, the Earth’s highest and lowest points respectively, is also approximately 5.778 miles.

For 20 years we have been delineating the prophesies and the hidden secrets of the Torah that are all hinting at the year 5778 as the year prophesied for the coming of Moshiach, so while it is astonishing that the surface temperature of the Sun is 5778˚ Kelvin, every aspect of our universe that we choose to shine a spot light on is equally astonishingly beautiful in its divine symmetry of design, purpose and redundancy. For example, given that 26 is the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה), which as we mentioned the Zohar associates with the Sun, and given that 5778 is simply (6000 – 222), its notable that these 5778 years since the birth of Adam are precisely .222222% of 26,000, and moreover that 26 x 222.222 = 5778 and furthermore that 222 is .333 of 666.  Thus 5778 is not just a year, or the exact temperature of the Sun (Zeir Anpin) that is necessary to sustain life on Earth, it is also a specific portion of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).

Why 5778?

As we stated earlier there are 70 mathematical factors in 66,600. One of them, the prime factor, is 37 x 1800, or 37 x (3 x 6) x 100. This relates back to 5778, the chosen year so to speak, in that 5778 = (6000-222) and 222 is .037 of 6000. Moreover, if 222 is .037 of 6000, than 5778 is (100-.037) or .963 of 6000. That is simple arithmetic, I promise you, though, what is conceptually deeper is why 5778 is also equal to 6 x 963. The year 5778 is to 6000 as 6 is to 5778.

66,600 MPH is the Speed of the Earth

66,600 = 37 x (3 x 600)

5778 = (6000 – 222)

222 = .037 of 6000

5778 = .963 of 6000

5778 = 6 x 963

The year 5778 is to 6000 as 6 is to 5778.

The Sun = Zeir Anpin = 6 dimensions

5778˚ K = The surface temperature of the Sun


The numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) is 26

5778 = (6000 – 222)

26 x 222.222 = 5778

.222222% of 26,000 = 5778.

Was our planet tilted just to connect the surface shined on to the Sun’s surface temperature?

Rav Brandwein of blessed memory explained to me how his Uncle, Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag, HaSulam, knew 5778 was the year of the final redemption. It was based on the deep Kabbalistic premise of 2/3 and 1/3 or .666 and .333.  Starting with the universally accepted premise of the sages and tzaddikim that we were given 6000 for the 6 days of Creation, he divided those 6000 years into 2/3 and 1/3 or 4000 and 2000, then likewise divided the remaining 2000 into 1333 and 666, then again into 444 and 222. What was left was 4000 + 1333.333 + 444.444 = 5778.  The Arizal used a similar method to hint at the exact date.

Why 666? Why 6?

Nearly 1900 years before the Big Bang theory, the Zohar described our universe as beginning with a zero-dimensional point that expanded to single dimensional line and then a 2-dimensional plane or square if you will. Then with the outer boundary lines of this square expanding at right angles, representing the 3 columns, the 3-dimensional universe came into existence and the cube was formed. The expansion beyond that into a 4-dimensional hypercube was purely spiritual. It was called Binah. When it was a point it was represented by the letter Yud(י) of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) with a numerical value of 10. When it was a line it was represented by the letter Vav (ו) of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) with a numerical value of 6.  Thus the original line, drawn between two points had the numerical value of 10 + 6 + 10 or 26, the same as the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).

The elemental cube was constructed of a Vav (ו) in its length, width and height and thus numerically 6 x 6 x 6 or 216 in total 3-dimensional volume. The surface area of that 6-sided cube is 6 x 6 x 6 or 216, so inside and out we could say it is 216 + 216 or 432, which is the frequency (432 Hz) of the 4-dimensional realm of Binah, as discussed in prior articles.  Please note that when the Zohar refers to this cube shape, or to our 3-dimensional world, it most often describes it as the 6 directions.

The Moon is the 3rd element in this harmonically tuned celestial clock. Its diameter is 2160 miles, or 10 times the basic cube, referring to the 6 directions of Zeir Anpin formed by the letter Vav (ו) of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) as it entered and created our 3-dimension space.  In other words, the letter Vav (ו)–a straight line–engaged itself at right 90° angles. The volume of said cube (216) is half 432 Hz, the all-important frequency of the upper spiritual realm of Binah.

Not only is the lunar diameter 2160 miles, but the radius of the Sun is 432,160 miles, making the Sun’s radius 200.07 times larger than the Moon’s diameter. If our outer clocks are primed to receive the 432 Hz frequency with which the spiritual realm of Binah operates, then so t0o our inner clock. At an average of 72 beats per minute, the number of times our hearts beat in an hour is 4320 beats.

Notice that each beat of the basic heart rhythm has 3 parts, so 216 parts in each minute of 72 beat.

Students of Kabbalah will immediately recognize the association to the 72 Names (triplets) comprised of the 3 sequential verses of the Torah of 72 letters each, for a total of 216 letters. These 3 verses describe the splitting of the endless sea that occurred in 2448. There is a secret, one of many, embedded in the 72 Name matrix that students of Kabbalah would not know. If you look carefully, you will see that certain Hebrew letters have crowns on them, in this case the triple crown. There are only two Names of the 72 that have side-by-side crowned letters. The first is located column 5 row 7 and the other at column 7 row 8: 5-7-7-8.  There is a reason they are set in a matrix. There are similar hints and clues embedded in the 42-Letter Name, the Schema, the Psalms, and all throughout the Torah.

5 – 7 -7 -8

Every day, the Earth revolves on its axis in 24-hour cycles, which is 86,400 seconds, One Day, aligning the Earth’s rotation in seconds with the diameter of the Sun in miles, which is 864,320 miles long.

86,400 seconds, One Day : 864,320 miles

We see that time and distance, two independent concepts, are merging together in this giant schematic. In this harmonically balanced trio of the Sun, Earth, and Moon, the Sun is considered the beginning, the giver of Light and the Moon is the end, the ultimate receiver, with all 3 playing integral roles. The bond between the Sun and the Moon is highlighted with the Moon’s diameter, 2160 miles being incorporated into the Sun’s radius 432160 miles. Thus, we have the Sun’s diameter being 401 times greater than the moon’s and if we assume this is no coincidence then we know that 401 is the numerical value of the article Et (את), the 4th word of the Torah, representing the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet, the alpha and the omega, Aleph and Tav, the beginning and the end if you will. Kabbalistically, as advised by Abraham Avinu in his Sefer Yetzirah, written 3800 years ago, the letter Tav(ת) represents the Moon. Wherever we find the article Et (את) inserted in the Torah narrative it is significant because the complete value of the article Et (את) is 424, that of Moshiach Ben David.

The Zohar tells us that Et (את) means from Aleph (א) to Tav (ת), which is the distance from the primordial Aleph (א), also known as Binah to Malchut. In this unfolding schematic it means from the Moon (Malchut/Nukva) to Earth (ארץ), the physical reflection of Binah or junction point to the upper world.

When we define attraction between objects in this world we compare the size of the objects with their distance apart. Therefore, the distance between the Earth and the Moon divided by the Moon’s diameter is 111.1111, or 1/6th the 666.666 value repeatedly built into our solar system. So forget gravity as the sole attractive force; someone made sure the Moon was just the right distance away from the Earth.  Their diameters and their distance apart are preplanned elements of this beautiful harmonic synchronicity. And that relationship based on the number 111 is anything but arbitrary.

The value (111) is that of the first Hebrew letter Aleph (א) connected to the realm of Binah, and thus a huge injection of mercy.  The very first of the Torah’s many commandments was to bless the new moon every month. Since Aleph (א) is numerically counted as both 1 and 1000 and has a gematria value of 111 when spelled out, the 6 letter Alephs (א) in the Torah’s first verse sum to either 666, 6000 or 6 respectively, which brings all this clockwork precision of the cosmos to its central point: Aleph (א), the reset button. By the way, when the Aleph (א) is broken down into its component letters, they collectively have the value of 32, as in the the 32 Paths of the Tree-of-life and as in the pull of gravity, 32 ft/sec².


The symmetry and harmonic correlation is not just skin deep. We discussed in depth in a previous article about the syncing of the 3 temperature scales and how they align with the dimensions of the Third (3rd) Holy Temple to be constructed shortly. Just below the Sun’s surface of 5778˚ K, is its Chromosphere or atmospheric ring, which is even warmer at 7800˚ F or 4320˚ C.  According to Rav Brandwein, may his memory be for a blessing, the 78 in 7800˚ F and especially in 5778˚ K stands for the values of the Hebrew initials of the Tree-of-Life(עץ–חיים), the non-illusory reality that is supposed to become available to use this year. It also stands for Adonai Echad (יְהוָה אֶחָֽד) from the Shema prayer, whose complete value is also 78. As we explained before and will cover again, there is enormous meaning to Adonai Echad (יְהוָה אֶחָֽד), G-d is One, on so many levels.

The Sun, synced to the same 3 temperature scales, is a powerful enormous furnace, burning at the precise temperatures so that its omitted light is processed in just the right way to sustain and illuminate our lives.  No one would question that it is a herculean task to create a star, the Sun, at all, let alone to mold it just right that so that it would sustain life at a specific distance away.  So why does its various temperature levels and measurements need to align with those of the Earth and the Moon? They are going to receive the light regardless, right? And who would have figured that the life and consciousness sustained by that Sun would reach a level after 5778 years whereby we could figure out its temperature at its core, its surface and its chromosphere? That would have taken extraordinary planning? But why?

Could there be a reason for Global Warming?

All this is being revealed as “global warming” raises the mean surface temperature of the Earth to 57.78˚ just as we enter the year 5778.

Reflecting on 27.3, the value of the word “gematria”, it is also the core temperature of the Sun at 27.3 million degrees Fahrenheit. Twice 273, or 546, is the sum of the initials of all the sefirot and is the gematria of Israel including the kolel, as advised to us by the Arizal.   So we now have the Sun’s temperature at its core, chromosphere, and surface, inclusive of all 3 temperature scales, integrally related to all the movement and mass in our solar system.  When the Kelvin scale was established based on the absolute freezing point of -273˚ C there was no way of man knowing that the core temperature of the Sun was 27.3 million degrees Fahrenheit and yet divinely a balance between absolute cold and absolute heat had already been built into the Sun.  Were these measurements important to G-d, or did He just want us to find them and their symmetry? Is it fitting we found them in 5778 or was it planned all along? We could not have found them much earlier as the technology was not available. Yes, the numbers meant something to the Kabbalists for thousands of years, but they had no way of knowing the temperature of the Sun or the diameter of the Moon.  It took time for the ancient and modern knowledge to merge; it took 5778 years to be precise.

Convinced that there is more than meets the eye going on with our universe, we could stop our investigation right now and limit our understanding, but Binah means Understanding and only by understanding are we going to be able to get in.  In the realm of Binah, everything is interconnected and as we have seen so far, everything in our world seems to be connected as well–only that we had no idea. When Isaac dug wells he was not looking for water. We need to keep digging if we want to reach the light.

Okay, so we know that the Sun’s surface temperature is 5778˚ on the Kelvin scale. Our scientists also tell us that Zero degrees (0°) on that Kelvin scale describes the moment when it is so cold that all motion stops. This absolute freezing point is -273.15˚ C.  All well and good, except that those dark, slightly cooler, spots on the Sun, aptly named sunspots, revolve around it in exactly 27.3 days,  and our Moon also orbits the Earth in those same 27.3 days. Picture it for a second. Place yourself just outside our solar system and picture it: against the background of absolute stillness, giant cooler dark spots are circling the sun in harmonic unison with the Moon circling the Earth—a precision dance, each pacing each other as if they were mentally connected.

We spoke about the 111 (Aleph) relationship between the Moon’s diameter and its distance from Earth, now we learn that the ratio of the Moon’s diameter over the Earth’s diameter is .273. Diameter is not just a distance. It means the Moon’s overall size and spherical volume is 27.3% of the Earth’s, even as it revolves around that Earth at the same exact 27.3 day pace that the sunspots are also revolving around the Sun’s surface.

Furthermore, the amount of time the Moon takes to complete one turn on its axis with respect to the stars is also 27.3 days (a sidereal day), and 273 days marks the ¾ point in the Earth’s 365-day journey around the Sun every year.  Because of how the temperature scales were designed, the other key point on the Kelvin scale from 0˚ K (-273˚ C) to 5778˚K is the melting point of ice, alternatively the freezing point of water, which is 273˚K.

Absolute Zero: -273.15˚ C

Sunspots revolve around the Sun’s surface in 27.3 days.

The Moon orbits the Earth in 27.3 days.

The ratio of the Moon’s diameter over the Earth’s diameter is .273.

Moon’s overall size and spherical volume is 27.3% of the Earth’s.

Moon revolves on its axis in 27.3 days.

The freezing point of water: 273˚K.

The core temperature of the Sun is 27.3 million degrees Fahrenheit.

Why? None of these physical phenomenon have anything to do with one another, no physical reason to sync up.

In a more basic geometric sense, the area of a square is 27.3% larger than the area of a circle inscribed or drawn inside it. This is actually significant because it means 27.3 plays a major role as a ratio when we go from the basic 2-d square and 3-dimensional cube to the circles and spheres we find all around us.

Kabbalistically, it is notable that a circle of 666 would yield a square circumscribed around it with an area of 848, which is equivalent to 2 x 424, or two times the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David.

Why 27.3? Could it be that 33.3 – 6 = 27.3? Once again, every key measure of our solar system harks back to the number 6 and the 333/666 relationship (1/3, 2/3).

Even the Torah made a point of the number 273:

“Number every firstborn male of the sons of Israel from a month old and upward, and make a list of their names.” Numbers 3:40; “and all the firstborn males by the number of names from a month old and upward, for their numbered men were 22,273.” Since they counted 22,000 Levites, Numbers 3:43; “For the ransom of the 273 of the firstborn of the sons of Israel who are in excess beyond the Levites,” Numbers 3:46

The Dance of the Three Elements

Once again, the universe is showing us an astonishing symmetry and similarity of form between time, space and motion. So how does this integrate with the 666-relationship and the Primordial Aleph (א) of the realm of Binah? Well, while 273 x 666 is 181818, which is 60606 x 3, Rabbi Abraham Azulai pointed out 400 years ago in his book Chesed L’Abraham that the 3 iterations of the spelling out of the letter Aleph (אלף) equal 1818.

Gematria is the ancient science of the numerical recognition and encodings of the energy represented by the Hebrew letters as they combine with one another. It was used extensively by the ancient kabbalists to understand the secrets and spiritual underpinnings of our universe.  Of the 70 levels of understanding of the Torah, Rav Abulafia of blessed memory, said that gematria was the deepest. The gematria value for the word “gematria” itself is 273.  Obviously, whoever built this enormous cosmic clock did not want us to miss the point.

In this melodic dance of the 3 cosmic bodies that govern our livesthe Earth, Sun and Moonthe ordinal value of their Hebrew names, Ertz (ארץ), Camah(חמה), and Levanah(לבנה) is 48, 26, and 33 respectively and their collective sum is 107.  This is telling because the sum of the integers from 1 to 107 is 5778.  Pure coincidence? Perhaps, but is it also a coincidence that those 66,600 mph that the Earth is circling the Sun is also 107,000 kilometers per hour or that the distance between the earth and the Sun divided by its diameter is 107. In other words, like the 111 Moons, the distance between the Earth and the Sun equals 107 Suns. And since everything in our world is reflected in (or from) the Torah it is noteworthy that there are 107,000 letters in the Torah preceding the 10 Commandments? To round things out, the Sun’s diameter divided by the distance from the Earth to the Moon is 3.6 and the sum of the numbers from 1 to 36 is 666, which brings us back to 66,600 mph.

The ordinal value of the Hebrew names for the Sun, Moon, and Earth  = 107

The distance from the Earth to the Sun = 107 Suns.

∑ 1 to 107 = 5778

The Earth Orbits the Sun at 107,000 KPH

There are 107,000 Letters preceding the 10 Commandments

The 10 Commandments begin at the 54th Paragraph of Exodus and 54 x 107 = 5778

The 10 Commandments end in Verse 20:18

2018 CE = 5778 HC

The Sun’s Diameter is 3.6 times the Distance from the Earth to the Moon

∑ 1 to 36 = 666

The truth be told I did not just come across the relationship between 107 and 5778 recently. I have known about it for 20 years. It is a deep Kabbalistic concept that energy is never lost so when we count whole numbers like 1 , 2, and 3 they exist individually and as a collective (1+2+3 = 6). This is a principle embedded throughout the Torah. The Sum ∑1 – 7 = 28. mirrors the 7 words and 28 letters of the Torah’s first ver, whose total gematria value is 2701, equivolent to ∑1 – 73, the numerical value of Chochma (Wisdom)  Then adding the very next word brings the total to 33 letters of numerical value 3003, which works out to ∑1-77, the value of mazal (fortune).  Another example is found in the sum of all 90,100 Yuds(י), Heis (ה) and Vavs(ו)–the components of the Tetragrammaton  (יהוה)–that are in the Torah  since 90,100 = ∑1-424 , the value of Moshiach Ben David.

Before we go on, let us try to make some sense of this. There are 111 Moons between the Earth and the Moon, and 107 Suns between the Earth and the Sun.  The 107 measures time, giving us a limit of 5778 years. The 111 measures distance, the spiritual distance to reach the Aleph (א) from the Malchut, Moon. 111 is the value of “the line (הקו)”, the line that is drawn down to us from Binah.

Considering the ordinal value of the 3 names again, we see the hand of G-d, or at least His Name (יהוה) represented: 4+8+2+6+3+3 = 26. These 3 names and 10 letters can be neatly arranged into the 3 columns and 10 dimensions (sefirot) of the Tree-of-Life that is at the heart of the ancient kabbalistic understanding. The 3 letters of the Sun(חמה) are on the right, the 3 letters of the Earth (ארץ) are on the left and the 4 letters of the Moon(לבנה) form the central column. Their complete gematria—their standard sofit numerical value plus the ordinal or alphabetical placement value, of the 10 letters—is equal to 1332 or 2 x 666, when the kolel of all the 16 elements of the equation are subtracted.

We mentioned that according to Abraham the Patriarch the Moon is associated with the letter Tav(ת) of numerical value 400, and the Sun is associated with the letter Caf (כ), representing Keter, the crowning highest dimension, whose numerical value of 20 is the square root of 400 and thus the essence or source of it. Similarly, the Sun is the source of the Moon’s light. Therefore, given all the solar connections to 666, it is significant that 20 = 6.666 x 3, and more so that the Western Calendar year corresponding to 5778 is 2018 CE and that 2018 = (666 x 3 + 666.666 x 3).

20 = 6.666 x 3  and 18 = (6 x 3)

2018 = (666 x 3 + 666.666 x 3)

So whether the year is 2018, or 20 centuries (6.666 x 3) plus 18 years (6 x 3), the year 2018 is all about the 6’s (vavs ווו) and their relation to 3-dimensional structure of our reality. The gematria equivalent to 20 (כ) and 18 (חי), or 2018, is keter (crowning summit) with chai (life) respectively, spelling out the “pinnacle of life.” Like any pinnacle, it is certainly a pivotal moment in time and in our history.  A culmination may be an even better translation, one fitting with all the prophecies.

“And the sun also rises, and the sun goes down” – Kohelet 1:5

The Earth (ארץ) begins with the letter Aleph (א), the Sun (חמה) begins with the letter Chet (ח), and the moon (לבנה) begins the with the letter Lamed (ל), and as we just explained the moon is energetically guided through the Tav (ת). The Hebrew letter dalet spelled (דלת) contains both the lunar letters Lamed (ל) and Tav (ת) and represents the same realm as the moon, Malchut, the realm that has no light of its own, as explained in the Zohar.  When we combine these 3 letters, representing the Earth, Sun and Moon, we get (אחד) the Hebrew word for One, as in “He and His Name are One” and “G-d is One” from the Shema prayer. The numerical value for Echad (אחד) is 13 which harks back to the 3 names and 10 letters and to the 3 columns and 10 dimensions (sefirot) of the Tree-of-Life. Now these 3 letters are each found exactly 1 time within the all-important 42-Letter Name Matrix. They are found respectively within the 1st triplet of each of the 1st, 3rd and 5th lines and it just so happens that these 3 triplets add up to 173 in standard gematria, which is the small gematria value for the entire 42 letters. These represent the 173 keys to Binah given to Moses as detailed in the Zohar. So if you were looking for the keys to get into Binah you need look no further than the 42-Letter Name.

We saw that when we tithe or subtract 1/10th of the value (26) of the Tetragrammaton  (יהוה) we get the value of the Earth’s tilt etc, 23.4˚  Then taking the value 27.3 repeated above as the net value of (30 – 1/10th) or 27.3, in other words (30 – 2.7) = 27.3.  Abraham, the Patriarch explained that the numerical value 30 is associated with the Hebrew letter lamed (ל) and that this letter lamed (ל) is associated to the sefira of Binah by virtue that it is the only letter that is drawn above the plane of existence. Given that this may be one reason why the Zohar tells us that there needs to be (לו) or 36 tzadikim present at all times to sustain the world.  So while it is not coincidental that (27.3 = 17.3 + 10), harking back numerically to the 173 keys of the 42-Letter Name, and the 10 sefirot, it is also not random chance that the sum of the integers from ∑ 1- 36 = 666.

It is interesting that One (אחד) is associated with 173 and the 42-Letter Name of Creation, because it was on the first day of Creation, found in Genesis 1:5, when “G-d named the light ‘Day,’… It was evening and morning, One day.” Independently, our scientists have determined that there are exactly 173 astronomical units in One day.  In other words, in relation to the set distance between the Earth and the Sun (93,000,000 miles approx.), this is how far light travels at the speed of light (186,000 mps) in One Day’s time (86,400 seconds).  What did G-d name the light? Day. And One day is divided into 2 parts (“evening and morning, One day,”) just as 173/2 = 86,400 seconds and 186,000/2 = 93,000,000.

“If my covenant be not day and night, it were as if I had not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth… -Jeremiah 33:25

According to the Zohar, “one day” refers to the “everlasting day” in the “everlasting world,” the world of Binah.

Consider this: While the speed-of-light is 186,000 mps and that it is considered by physicists to be primordial, existing far beyond the birth of our Sun, how contrived is it that the width of the Earth’s orbit is 186,000,000 miles wide?

In the simplest sense, the light traverses the Earth’s orbit in 186,000,000/186,000 or 1000 seconds. Spiritually, the value of Aleph is 1000, and time of Binah is 1000 years long. The difference between the Torah’s first verse (2701) and the 42-Letter Name (3701) is 1000. This is not surprising since the 42-Letter Name, that begins and ends with the letters  Aleph (א) and Tav (ת), is our bridge to Binah and always has been.

By the way, the Earth’s 93,000,000 mile distance from the Sun is also 149.5 million KM using the metric system and 1495 is the sum value of all 22 Hebrew letters.

The Genesis verses 1:5 -1:7, including the excerpt above, all occurred before the 2nd day of Creation was sanctified. “It was morning, one day…water from water” has the standard gematria of 2448, as in the year the Israelites stood at Sinai and as in the 24.48 days the Sun takes to revolve at its equator. It is also 6666 in full sofit gematria inclusive of the kolel of 18 for the 18 words and verses. Moreover, when G-d separated the “water from water (מַיִם לָמָיִם)” He also split its numerical sofit value of 1332 in 2 to get 666.


Genesis verses 1:5 -1:7

וַיְהִיבֹקֶר, יוֹם אֶחָדוַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים, יְהִי רָקִיעַ בְּתוֹךְ הַמָּיִם, וִיהִי מַבְדִּיל, בֵּין מַיִם לָמָיִם


A deeper secret embedded in “water from water (מַיִם לָמָיִם)” is that in complete gematria the letter lamed (ל) has a value of 42, as in the 42-Letter Name of G-d, and each of the two words for water (Mayim  מים) have the complete gematria of 126 or (3 X 42) representing the 3 columns of the complete Tree-of-Life.  According to Rabbi Chaim Vittal of blessed memory, each of these 3 Trees has 42 parts. In total, the 3 components Mayim-Lamed-Mayim, themselves reminiscent of H2O in their composition, there are 7 associations with 42.  When G-d was splitting the water from water, He was separating the upper and lower 42-Letter Names and setting up the dynamic in which they and the Tree-of-Life would function as a nexus between Binah and our world in order to spiritually maintain our universe. It was this action and the splitting of the waters that later manifest on cue as the splitting of the Endless Sea 2448 years later. So it is not coincidental then that our scientists have figured out that the Molar mass or molecular weight of water is 18.01528 g/mol, yet again connecting a crucial life-sustaining element in our environment to 18 or 3 x 6.

What is the Source?

We have already discussed the letter Vav(ו) as the origin of the value 6, as in 666, and we know that 6 x 6 formed the first square and 6 x 6 x 6 the first and basic cube. Yesod, the 6th dimension in Zeir Anpin is the pivotal point and spiritual reservoir above our world.  As Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto explained in his book, “Secrets of the Future Temple” that “It is Binah that sets limits and measure, for she is the source. When the quality of strict measure reaches Yesod it takes on her name and is called “the measuring rod…the length of the rod is six [6] cubits. Each cubit is six [6] handsbreaths…(when all are connected to the 6 directions and sefirot]and when they connected to one another, they make thirty-six[36], corresponding to the length of this rod.”

6 Handsbreaths = 1 cubit

36 Handsbreaths = 1 measuring rod

36 inches = 1 Yard

3.6 ft = 42 inches

3.6 months = 42 months

The basic cube =6 x 6 x 6 = 6 x 36 = 216 =6³ = 1 cubit³ = 1 = One 

The 42-Letter Name is our nexus to Binah and contains all the keys we need to access it. It is the ONLY Name we can access safely as we access it from below and it get processed by the Upper 42-Letter Name above. In other words, it has an impermeable firewall to protect it and us. At the end of the 6th  line of the 42-Letter matrix, at the end of the line corresponding to Yesod, are the letters (קז) of numerical value 107, which we know alludes to 5778.  Then in the middle of the 7th and final line, corresponding to our physical world, we have the Vav(ו). This Vav(ו), or line, is part of the two letters (קו) that spell the Hebrew word for “line,” kav(קו). Then the gematria of the 4 sequential letters that include that line (קוצי) is 216, representing the cube of that line. But it all started with the single point called Zion (ציון) also embedded and encoded into this 7th line, using the same 4 letters (קוצי), utilizing the component final nun (ן) component of the koof(ק). Zion is the Upper Jerusalem, the point through which all the real (Spiritual) light of our universe flows. To quote the Zohar, “Zion is the Inner Yesod of the Nukva [Malchut].”

“Out of Zion, teh perfection of beauty, Elohiim has shone forth.” -Tehilim 50:2

The 3 celestial numbers used as angles, temperature, times, and distances used in the design of our universe line up in a very specific and ordered way: 23.4 – 26 – 27.3 are 2.6 and 1.3 units apart respectively, meaning that of the entire 3.9 units that separate the measures 23.4 and 27.3  are split into the .666 and .333 proportions (i.e 2.6/3.9 = .666 and 1.3/3.9 = .333).

Furthermore, a deeper level of gematria reveals that (23.4 X 26 X 27.3)/ (23.4 + 26 + 27.3) = 216.55 thus circling back on the basic cube.  And when we add the three basic distances (diameters) of these same celestial bodies, 216 + 432 + 864, we get 1728, which is a 12³ cube and the sum of 6 cubes of 216 The sum of 1728 is also one less than the 1729 words in the Torah that have the value 26 of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).  The relationship with the cube shape is not a casual one, as the 3-dimensional cubic shape necessarily has 6 side (faces), 8 vertices (points) and 12 edges, totaling 26 total elements. The 4-dimensional cube or hypercube, corresponding to Binah, has 42 faces, 72 vertices and 72 edges for a total of 186 as in the 186,000 mps speed of light and 186,000,000 mile width of our earthly orbit.  This makes perfect sense as information in the state of Binah is instantaneous, meaning it travels around at the speed of light.  It also makes sense that we can access Binah through the 42-Letter Name of G-d and the 72 Names (Triplets). This is also why the 4 paragraphs of the Shema have 42, 72, 50 and 72 words each.


Moreover, this corresponds to what the Zohar tells us are the 36 hours of the Ohr Ha-Ganuz, the concealed light of Binah, which was set aside for Adam even though he had sinned.  This is the special light set aside and available for us to tap into every Channukah as we light the 36 Chanukkiah candles over the 8 days for the sum of the numbers from ∑ 1 to 8 is 36.

There is a an interesting story regarding the Sultan’s search for the meaning of the 9th Channukah candle, the Shamash or helper candle. What he never learned was that the Shamash (שמש) is spelled the same way as is the Sun in Hebrew, Shemesh (שמש), both of which have the ordinal value of 42 for the two shins (שש) and 13 for the Mem (מ). This is just like the Mem-Bet (מב) or the Shem Mem-Bet, the 42 Letter Name, whose value is 42 plus an ordinal value of 13, for a total of 55. It is also just this the 13 words with the initial Vav (ו) is the first paragraph of the Shema, the one with 42 words, combined with the 42  words with the initial Vav (ו) in the rest of the 4 paragraphs for a total of the 55 mercies.  We already know that the Sun is represent by the Vav (ו) and that 13 is the value of Echad (אחד), One. So combining all that we know, can the secret of the Shamash (שמש) candle standing above the rest be that it is a Vav (ו), the one that represents the Sun, Shemesh (שמש)? It certainty looks like a Vav (ו) and it brings everything together as One. Moreover the Vav (ו) of value 6 times the 36 candles is 216 again.

Meanwhile, with the 8 Shamash (שמש) candles there are 44 candles in total plus the One Echad (אחד), making 45, representing the other Name for the Sun (חמה). Chamah (חמה) can be broken down to chet(ח) for the 8 nights and Mah (מה) for the Tetragrammaton of Zeir Anpin at the level of Sun.

Channukah 5778 is almost upon us, the more we can harness its secrets the better our connection to Ohr Haganuz, the Light of Moshiach will be. The proper Chanukah meditations as detailed by the Arizal can be found here. If you are going to light the candles, you want to get the most out of it for your family and our world, right? Who knew more than the Ari?

Then we have the standard value of Shemesh (שמש) which is 640 or (8² x 10) and when we add the Tetragrammaton  (יהוה) to the Sun (שמש), both representative of Zeir Anpin, we get 640 + 26 = 666, yet again.


This is all very surreal. Let us step back and examine what we now know about our universe in the way that G-d and the beings in Heaven might see it, or aliens in outer space if that is where your faith lies.  Our solar system is in reality a giant clock with enormous mechanical gears turning one another in lock-step. Our hearts beat to the ticking of time that is based on the turning of the Earth and Moon as they spin in harmonic sync with and revolve around the Sun. They are all aligned, tuned, and constructed to the same proportions (including their mass, radius, diameters, etc.) and then tilted just so.  Their speed and distance traveled is likewise aligned to those selfsame proportions, as is the strength of their internal battery, which is set at 5778K.   Perhaps, like its Swiss counterparts, this clock-like mechanism gets gunked up over time because of all our klippot, negativity, and acquired tikkune.  Or perhaps the gears in this giant clock-like mechanism are wound to only last 5778 years, and unless the reset button is pushed at the start of 2019 CE it will grind to a halt in one way or another.  We cannot know for sure.  The two things we do know are that one, the ancient ones prophesied all this thousands of years before they could have physically known any of it, and two, the year 5778 is upon on.

We can no longer view our solar system as a streak of random accumulations of meteorites and luck, all floating within a sea of endless stars and galaxies. Random luck does not align proportions across different physical elements and modalities. Random luck does not set the various temperature levels of the Sun to match our planets sizes and speeds of rotations.  Nor does evolution and physics.  Random luck does not make the primordial mathematical constant Phi (1.6180033889…), which controls the spiraling growth throughout nature from our DNA to the shape of galaxies, align with the 3 Vavs(ווו) and 5778.

Phi^18 = 5778.000 and 18 = 6+6+6

Nor does random luck does insert the numerical string 5778 and 2019 three (3) times each within the first 1000 digits (10³) of Pi. No, there is nothing random about this, and we cannot take these alignments of our solar system for granted.  The Earth is not simply in a fortuitous orbit around the Sun; it is set in a fixed mechanism, designed not by evolution and simple laws of physics, but by strict intent and purpose. Abraham and the true kabbalists have known this for thousands of years.  Our scientists are loathe to admit it, but all the technological advancements of the last few decades have served to prove it.  Like Abraham, modern physicists now believe the greater universe is designed around 10 dimensions bundled together. Abraham taught us their names and their relationships with one another; our physicists are confirming the mathematics.

Most of the information offered above were not kabbalistic secrets; they were just little known scientific facts about our solar system that we tied together and highlighted. Originally, we had intended for them to serve as an introduction to the real secrets, ones which we all need in order to break out beyond the clock-like confines of our physicality. As the details of the mechanism that is our universe became more numerous, it became apparent that we needed to present these critical bridges to the true Binah reality in a separate article, which will follow shortly. It also became apparent just how critical these revelations are.

Stay tuned. In our next article we will show exactly when the dawn of time began and how we can blow past this event horizon with connections already found in the Torah and our siddurim.

Zohar Vayeshev 16:155 “Low and behold: how foolish are men who neither know nor care for teh ways of the Holy One, blessed be He. They are all asleep, and sleep never leaves their eye sockets.”

If you buy into the idea that everything is random and life will keep evolving forever, keep at it.  If you woke up and now realize that for the last 5778 years we have been living in a giant experimental Petri dish, it is time to take matters in your own hands before someone turns out the light.  Is it just a random occurrence that Putin has just launched the most powerful nuclear Submarine ever, the Prince Vladimir, capable of hitting targets specifically”5778″ miles away?  Is all the chaos in the world right now also coincidental? Is it coincidental that we have finally woken up this year to the fact that most of what we thought was real and news was fake? Is our news any more contrived than what we have been led to believe about the origins of our solar system? What is real? It is no wonder that for thousands of years the kabbalists have described our world  “the world of illusion.”

The rigid structure of our solar system made our world a wonderful and protective incubator in which our population has grown from 2 individuals to 7.6 billion people over the last 5778 years, yet it also made it a prison.  We are looking out from this prison, not in.  We are on the inside looking out through the numerical bars.  Do you agree it is time we break out of this contrived prison of physical limitations?  Do you want to escape to the limitless realm of unbound possibilities, Binah. That is what awaits us outside these tall fixed walls.

We look forward to breaching the walls with you, very soon,

Chag Chanukah Sameach



The Ten Commandments, Part II – The Gates Open Through a Tiny Word.

In the first installment in this series of articles on the Ten commandments, we established that they were linked with Keter, the highest sefira (Dimension) of all 10 dimensions of the Tree-o-life, and that beginning with the encoding in its first 3 words, “I am God, your Lord” they further link our generation to the 3rd opportunity to receive the Tree-of-life reality in the next few years.

As for the 2nd time that cosmic window opened, it was 66.6 jubilee years ago, when G-d chose to recite the 10 Utterances.  The first time occurred a total of 115.6 jubilees years ago. To understand that you must be able to think of time as fluid and space as collapsible, and reality as we know it as an illusion. In other words, you must be able to perceive the tree-of-life reality that was offered to our ancestors back in 2448 HC, 49 jubilee years after Creation .

In the 20th chapter and 54th Paragraph of Exodus (Shmot/Names), 600,000 Israelites and 4 times as many erev rav (known as the the people) stood poised at Mt Sinai.

This was after the Zohar tells us Moses received the 173 Keys to Heaven (the 42-letter Name); after the rectification of the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-life through the 10 plague, as explained by the Arizal; after the tools of the 42-Letter Name (Mem-Bet) and the 72 Names (Ayin-Bet) were given to Moses and the Israelites when they cried out to G-d; after they split of the Red (endless) Sea; and after they completed the cleansing process through the appreciation, tshuva, and tools embedded in the “Song of the Sea,” the Israelites were ready to receive the 10 Utterances directly from G-d, thus completing their ascension to Keter. That was the plan.


The 10 Utterances are found at chapter 20 in parsha Yitro of Shmot (Exodus) and the letter Yud (Y) of numerical value 10 is a direct substitute for the number 10 in the 10 Utterances (Commandments).  Moreover, the letter Yud (YVD) when spelled out has the numerical value 20, the same as the chapter the 10 Utterances are found in. This is significant because the number 20, esrim, has the numerical value of 620, that of Keter, the crowning, hightest sefira (dimension). Moreover,Yitro (YTRV), Moses’ father-in-law, not only begins with the letter Yud–actually the only one of the 54 Torah portions to begin with Yud–but it has the gematria value of 616, the same as H’Torah (the Torah). And when we add the kolel of the 4 letters we get  616 +4 = 620, or Keter once again. And that’s just the start.

Two Moments in Time Linked Together through a Single Window

That there are 9 verses spanning paragraphs 54 to 62 of Shmot (Exodus) is no coincidence. Readers of this blog know by now the formulas of the sum of positive integers through 107 = 5778; and 54 x 107 = 5778, the year the tzaddikim prophesied for the arrival of Moshiach and the geula (final redemption); and also that the surface temperature (radiance) of the Sun, representing the King and Zeir Anpin, is 5778 K, while its core temperature is 156 million K, with 156 being the gematria value of Joseph, representing Yesod of Zeir Anpin.

But what hasn’t been revealed yet is that the numerical value 54 is found 156 times in the Torah and that the Name Dan (DN)–the initials that Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah (The Book of Formation) says would lead to Mashiach–of numerical value 54, is found 26 times, corresponding to the value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH). And consequently that 54 + 156 = 210, as in the 210 years of Exile in Egypt that just ended prior to the 10 Utterances.

And as most students of Torah know that the Torah is divided in 54 parashot (portions), so this being paragraph 54, coupled with the value of Yitro’s name,  is most probably a hint that the whole Torah is about to be received, not just a few commandments to behave civilly.

The number 54 also has the distinction of being half of 108, the numerical value of the infamous golden calf.  The reason that this connection is so significant will be revealed shortly. And since the number 107 is integrally associated with 5778, and thus the reception of Moshiach, that 108 is 1 beyond it, is significant as well. Nevertheless, for the moment it’s important to note that the first letter on the 10 Utterances is the 107007th letter in the Torah, or looked at another way, 107 x 1000 + 7 (representing Keter (1000) and the 7 sefirot of Zeir Anpin).

And for its part, 62, as in the 62nd and final paragraph of the 10 Utterances, it is the key to understanding what is really going on in the section. For starters. there are 62 letter Yuds, of numerical value 10, within these 9 paragraphs. Now, the letter Yud (Y) is the first letter of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) and is associated with the level of Chochma (wisdom), the 9th and 2nd highest sefira (dimension), and those 62 Yuds have a total numerical value of 620, that of keter (crown), the highest sefira, the place the Israelites had reached as G-d spoke to them.  This also means the Yuds reprsent exactly 1/10th the letters in the 10 Commandments.

But the icing on this keter cake is found in that there are 620 letters in these 9 short paragraphs.

Moreover, the sum of the ordinal values of those 620 letters works out to 11 x 620 + 1 (kolel), making the 10 Commandments also representative of the full 11 sefirot, when the balancing or reservoir of knowledge sefira (dimension), Da’at, is included.

And of the 10 Utterances, 8 really begin with the word Lo (LE), “don’t,” which is EL (G-d) backwards and these 8 words total 248, the value of Abraham, of mercy, and of the Earth’s reflected radiance back to the sun (248.5 K), but also 248 = 4 x 62. Obviously, this small 620 letter section of the Torah is quite special and unique.

Let’s talk about this word Lo (LE), meaning “don’t, because it is so ubiquitous amongst the 172 (132+3) words and 13 verses of the 10 Commandments. It’s found a total of 13 times, connecting it to the concept of Oneness (Echad) and love (Ahava), whose Hebrew translations have the value 13.

There seems to be a pattern developing as the numerical value of Lo (LE) is 31, or 13 reversed, its ordinal value is, well, 13.

Now in verse Exodus 20:6, where it says, “I show love for thousands of generations,” the words for love and thousands both contain the prefix Lamed, making both words actually begin with LE: (LEHBY, L’ahavi and LELPYM, L’alaphim).

This phrase Chesed L’alaphim is actually at the heart of the 13 attributes of G0d and both the Zohar and the Arizal translate it to G-d will show mercy for 2000 years, as we’ve previously written about.

With these 2 additional Lo (LE) and 3 others that are concealed at the beginning of various words in these 13 verses we have a total of 18, which is universally knows as the value of Chai (life).

Now, the sages tell us that the final letters point towards the future and in summing up the gematria of the final letters in 18 words that Lo (LE) appears within the 10 Commandments we get a total of 2028, which is significant because we know that 2018 CE (or 2028 – 10 (kolel for 10 Commandments) is the prophesied year 5778 HC.

And also because 2028 breaks down to 2000 + 18 + 10, reminding us of what the Arizal and the Zohar said about 2000 years amongst the 18 words of the 13 attributes. We can now more fully see the connection between the 13 pure Lo (LE) and 18 total Lo (LE) with the 18 words of the 13 attributes of G-d, in this the 20th Chapter of Exodus.

And if we add the two other words in this 620 letter section of the Torah that begin and end with L and E respectively, (LShVE, lashav) then the full 20 concealed Lo (LE) total 20 x 31 or a perfect 620.

Everything in the Torah has a purpose, both a revealed purpose and then multiple layers of concealed ones.  We can look at the 10 Commandments as moral compasses or we can look at them as gateways into the 10 dimensions of the Tree-of-life.  For 66.6 jubilee years (3330 years) most of us have seen them as moral guides, it’s time to really accept them.  28 generations ago we were invited in and the people replied that G-d was too loud for them.

And by the way, in case we missed it, the 28 generations was the The Divine Calendarhidden meaning behind the reference to 2000 generations, which is one of the reasons why Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai (author of the Zohar) and the Arizal recognized it as 2000 years, but, of course, they knew the Divine Calendar and knew when the 2000 years would begin and end.

So just to wrap us this part of the series, we should note that when we add 1 for the kolel to the 172 words in this section, we get 173 words, which not only hints at the 42-Letter Name through its small gematria value of 173, which are incidentally the 173 keys given to Moses, but taking the letters of the section over the words gives us 620/173 = 3.58, and 358, as we know, is the numerical value of Moshiach, the messiah.

This is what we can receive when we enter the 10 Commandments, instead of just follow them (very important too).

Lo (LE) is tied for being the shortest word in the Torah, but through this small doorway a vast universe awaits.  The Hebrew word for heart is very similar Lev (LB). Just because one translates into English as “don’t”, don’t let yourself be deceived by the illusion that one doesn’t stem from the other and LE is at the heart of Keter from where the love flows.

And then to complete the picture, the 13 verses in this section further links it to the 13 times that words with a numerical value of 173 appear in the Torah. Every wire in this section is very much alive and burning bright.  Let it burn bright in our hearts as well.

Part III will continue shortly.

The 10 Plagues, Then and Now.

The Hidden Message in the 10 Plagues

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It’s all about Four (4)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The 10 Plagues were Planned at the Beginning of Time.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The 11 Letters of the 10 Plagues and the Final Redemption

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Echad (E,Ch,D)

Mem-bet (M,B)

Ayin-Bet (A,B)

Shaddai (Sh, D, Y)

Nun (N)

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

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

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

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

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

The “Book of the Wars of the Lord.”

A lot happened in Parsha Chukath, and it all has to do with the so-called end of days, the next 9 years.

Right after G-d tells Aaron and Moses about using the Red Heifer for cleansing, Miriam dies in Parsha Chukath in the beginning of chapter 20, the 137th chapter in the Torah. We know that the 137th chapter is significant because 137 is the value of Kabbalah “to receive,” and since 137 is 1/73, the value of Chochma (wisdom), it means “to receive wisdom.”

And with Miriam’s passing, so vanishes the well that sustained the Israelites in the desert, which results in Numbers (Bamidbar) 20:08 G-d revealing to Moses and Aaron how to get water from the cliff (rock). He gave Moses a staff (rod) and told them to speak to the rock. Instead, Moses struck the rock twice and water gushed forward. But because he didn’t speak to the rock as instructed, neither Moses nor Aaron was allowed to enter Israel, which prevented the Tree-of-Life from taking root there. In verse 20:09, Moses picks up the staff and begins the process that ends with G-d saying in verse 20:12, “You did not have enough faith in me.”

The Israelites were in the 40th and final year of their journey from exile to the Promised Land, in Kadesh at the time, the 33rd place of the 42 journeys that took them from exile to freedom. Kadesh, whose numerical value is 404, has a square root of 20.09… and the total numerical value of all those 33 places is exactly 15,000, with 9 more journeys to make in that final year.

After the incident with the water, the Israelites request that Edom allow them to pass through using the King’s highway and they were denied, so the Torah dizzily takes us through the final 9 places, skirting Edom, and through the battles the Israelites fought and won. These were part of the “Book of the Wars of the Lord,” and they highlighted the defeats of the King Sichon, and his city of Chesbon in particular, and of King Og. The action was interrupted to recite the Song of the Well, and the Song of Cheshbon.

Just before the battles with Sichon, after Aaron dies and after they defeated the Canaanites, doubts overtook the Israelites in the final moments, just as it happened at Mt Sinai. The first time, G-d withdrew the tree-of-life and immortality from them, and this time He sent them venomous snakes. G-d then gave Moses the antidote, a copper snake that drew the judgment out of them when they gazed upon it. We know that both the snake and Moshiach have the same gematria and that they are opposite sides of the same coin. Thus when the evil inclination overtook them, G-d let them taste the tree-of-knowledge of good and evil, so that they could once again appreciate the tree-of-life and know the difference.

So lets see what’s really going on here. The numerical value of “speak to the rock” is 848 or 2 x 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David, which may explain help to why Moses struck the rock 2 times. Another reason has to do with Adam eating from the tree-of-knowledge twice, and the 2 times Moses had to carry down the tablets, as will be come more apparent later in this article.

For some reason square roots play a big part in understanding this portion, and thus we find that 8.48 is the square root of 72, as in the 72 Names (Triplets) utilized in splitting the Red Sea (Sea of Reeds) and derived from the 3 verses of 72 letters that describe that splitting. Since Moses staff played a part then too, and both incidents concern water, this connection to the 72 Names is probably meritorious and the Names were probably used here as well. What’s more, as this entire portion is about the final years leading up to the geula and to Moshiach, the 72 Names will probably play a part then as well.

In preparation for understanding this portion we should also note that the numerical value for the phrase used in the Torah “Water from the rock” (Ma’im Min Hselah) is 345, the same as “Moshe” (Moses).

One major hint as to what is going on in this portion is that the gematria sofit (final) value of Sichon (SYChN) is 778 as in 5778, suggesting that the battle-filled 9 final journeys of the Israelites final year might indeed refer to the 9 final years from 2009 – 2018 (5778 HC). And strengthening that line of thought is the structure of the word Cheshon (ChShBVN), where Sichon is found, in which we have the numerical value of Chet (Ch) being 8 and the other 4 letters being 358, that of the word Mashiach (Messiah). Keep in mind that according to the tzaddikim, the figurative brit (milah) of Moshiach will take place in 5778, after 8 years, in the same way that a brit milah occurs for a baby boy after 8 days.

The portion begins oddly as well, and we know that any oddities in the Torah were purposely included to draw the attention of the tzaddikim and the Torah scholars. After the usual “G-d spoke to” the Torah says “that the following is declared to be the Torah’s decree as commanded by God,” which in Hebrew is Zot Chukat H’Torah Asher Zah YHVH L’Emor Daber (TzET ChKT HTVRH EshR ZVH YHVH), or 2160 in total numerical value, and 2160 is 10 times the value of the word for awe (216), the necessary attribute for reaching the Tree-of-life. Moreover, we know that whenever anything in Torah is exactly 10 times a known numerical value, it usually means that it is inclusive of all 10 sefirot (dimensions). In this case, it is also not coincidentally 10 times the numerical value of the sefirot of Gevura, representing spiritual judgment, and of the 216 letters in the 72 Names (Triplets) of G-d.

The word, Zot, of numerical value 408, according to the Zohar is a reference to the time of Mashiach, and also refers specifically to the 408 letters missing from the 600,000 composite letters in the entire Torah (599,692). The value 408 is also .666 of 612, the value of the word Brit, Covenant, as in G-d’s Covenant with Abraham that took place in 21018 HC.

The word, Chukath, is composed of ChK and T, employing that same KCh, of numerical value 108, as the word for “take” in the phrase “Take the staff (rod),” used to channel the water. 108 is also the numerical value of the “golden calf,” the second sin—Adam’s was the first—to cause Man to lose the Tree-of-life reality. And just to be clear, 108 is also 2 x 54, the numerical value of the “staff” that Moses used to strike the rock, and since “water from the rock” is and allusion Moses (345), he struck himself (and Aaron).

Reading of The Divine Calendar know the extreme significance of the number 8 in terms of Biblical dates and the timing for the arrival of the Moshiach, but the letter Chet, of numerical value 8, when spelled out without the yud, has the spelled-out word value of 408, as in Zot. Moreover, using that particular spelling, the spelled out value of the 3 letters in the word Chukat (ChKT) is exactly 1000, an allusion to the crowning and highest sefira (dimension) of keter, and also to the completion of the Tree-of-Life in that all 1000 = 103 meaning all 10 dimensions are completed within the perfectly balanced 3 column structure of the universe.

Nevertheless, the first 4 words of this odd phrase, “that the following is declared to be the Torah’s decree,” add up to 2019, when the kolel for the letters is subtracted, and 2019 is the first year that the tree-of-life reality is supposed to be in effect. This interpretation is strengthened by the presence of the word Zot that begin the phrase, and whose square root is 20.19

Now, the next four words of the odd phrase can be split into 2 pairs, TzET ChKT and HTVRH Esh. The second pair can be read as Rosh H’Torah (Head of the Torah), and the numerical value of the first pair, TzET ChKT, is 916, that of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, the author of the Zohar, which together makes a powerful statement whose timing was concealed within the gematria and purpose was signaled by the cryptic word Zot.

Now, as for the “Book of the Wars of the Lord” which is Hebrew is B’Sefer Milchamot Hashem (BSPR MLChMT YHVH), while the first 7 letters total 420 in value, the first of the 3 words, B’sefer, has an ordinal value of 54, same as the value of the rod.

And as we’ve discussed in previous articles 54 is not only the timing frequency (54 beats/minute) that the human brain functions at, but it is the measure of the double cycle of the 27 Hebrew letters and moreover it solves for the equation 107 x 54 = 5778, where the sum of the positive integers through 107 also equals 5778.

The numerical value of the “Book of the Wars of the Lord” (BSPR MLChMT YHVH) is split into the first 2 words of numerical value 860 (or 10 x 86, the value of the Name of G-d that reflects spiritual judgment, Elohim) and the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) of numerical value 26. Together they add up to 886, plus a kolel of 2, which gives us a value of 888, recalling what we said about the number 8.

And if you doubt the connection, please note that the sun of the values of the spelled out letters plus their kolel in the word Moshiach (MshYCh) is 888.

Observing the letters in the “Book of the Wars of the Lord” (BSPR MLChMT YHVH) we see that there are 13 letters centered on the central letter Chet, once again. And adding the 1st and last letters, and working inward to the central (Chet), then summing their square roots give us 66.652, as in the 66.6 jubilees years (Biblical mandated 50 year intervals) from the reception of the Torah in 2448 HC, when we last stood at the foot of the Tree-of-life to 5778: (BH, SV, PH, RY, MT, LM, and Ch)

The 52 in 66.652 can signify the level of the Tetragrammaton known as Ban, and referred to as Malchut, the bottommost dimension of manifestation. 52 is also the numerical; value of the phrase’s initials (BMY), which can also stand for the 42-Letters of the Name of G-d.

If we peel off the letters of each word, starting with their initial we get BMY, etc we’re left with 4 triplets and the letter Tav (T), which as the last letter in the alef-bet indicates finality and the level of malchut. Then if we add up the square roots of each of these 4 triplets we get 42.3 plus .1 for the kolel and we get 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David: (BMY, SLH, PChV, RMH and T)

How do we know to permute the letters in this fashion? Because we are told by Rav Ashlag that in the Zohar Shlach Lecha #289, the Mashiach, as did Daniel, permuted the famous letters in Daniel 5:25 MENE MENE TEKEL UFARSHIN in just the same way. “G-d has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to the end…”

Whether we divide the letters in pairs of triplets, the two letters left out Chet and Tav, interestingly enough for the letter Chet (ChT) once again, or numerical value 408.

As for the initials of B’Sefer Milchamot Hashem (BSPR MLChMT YHVH), they connect to phrase recited during the highpoint of the Amidah prayer connection Baruch Cavod YHVH Mimkomo (G-d is in his Everlasting Place), whose initials are BCYM, and also to the 42-Letter Sword of Moses hidden within the Song of the Sea, whose initials also begin Mi Camoka Belim YHVH (MCBY), recited just before the Amidah. That these initials sum up to 72 is significant as the two tools necessary to fight these wars will be the 42-Letter name and the 72 Names (Triplets). In case you are wondering the Caf is the complimentary letter to the Tav (T) in Milchamot.

The wars described in the final journeys of the Israelites will be repeated in one form or another within the next 9 years, and the torah is warning us as to what will happen. As hinted at in the name of King Og (AVG), the last 9 years of the final 70—Ayin(A) has a numerical value of 70—will be split into two parts, the 3 years—Gimmel(G) has a value of 3—and the final 6 years—Vav(V) has the value of 6. This means that for 2009 there will be a break at 2012, probably when Amalek (doubts) take hold in earnest after the Mayan illusion, and the wars will continue for 6 more through 2018. Recall that it was in verse 20:12 that G-d says, “You did not have enough faith in me.”

Regarding those doubts, the last time we stood to receive the Tree-of-life, the Israelites weren’t able to wait the final 6 hours for Moses to return from upon Mt Sinai with the two tablets of the Torah of Moshiach and receive immortality. And in Chukath, we see again that they couldn’t wait until the final end of the 40 years in the desert before complaining, and yearning to return to Egypt.

Doubts were always their downfall and have always been ours. While the Israelites defeated the Canaanites and the Amorites, they never defeated the Amalekites, who kabbalistically represent their doubts because the Hebrew word for doubt (Sofek) and Amalek have the same numerical value. And this is the greatest war of all, for it will determine who receives the geula (final redemption) and who reaches the tree-of-life, and conversely, who stays behind again in the world of the tree-of-knowledge of good and evil.

According to the Baal Shem Tov, the spiritual significance of the red heifer that begins this portion is to help us cleanse ourselves of our ego, which is at the root of our doubts, and which we know will be all the more important for us to do as the days of the final redemption approach over the next 9 years.
