The Story of Purim; The Story of Our Future

It is said that Purim will be the only holiday that we’ll celebrate after the final redemption, but if all the holidays are based on cosmic windows, what separates Purim in the grand scheme of cosmic time? We read about Purim in the Book of Ester so that’s where we must search for the answer.

Yes, Purim is about defeating Amelak, our individual and collective doubts, about unifying ourselves as we did in Shushan heeding Mordechai and Ester’s calls, and about revealing the concealed, but it doesn’t seem to explain why we’ll still be celebrating this event that occurred thousands of years ago and not all the others. Unless…

Unless, the events of Purim as laid out in the Megilat Ester were to reoccur today, at least metaphorically and spiritually. What if these events that occurred at the end of the 70 years of Babylonian exile were to repeat themselves at the end of the 70 years of our present exile?

Yes, this current exile has lasted 1948 years since 70 CE, but only 70 years since the establishment of Israel as a nation in 1948 CE. Of course the final 70 year time span is based on Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlog (HaSulam), and other well established predictions of the coming of Mashiach and the final redemption in 5778 (2018 ce), but we’ve covered that in a hundred other articles and books like The Divine Calendar and There’s Nothing Random About the Universe already.

That would indeed give us a reason to keep celebrating Purim; it would be celebrated as the final revelation of the concealed light. It would also mean that we actually have a blueprint of events that are to unfold in the final 8 years.

Every bit of the Tanakh is encoded, and we spend most of articles helping decode the first 5 Books of it, the Torah, but the Megilat Ester (The Book of Ester) is one of the most thoroughly encoded ones, with so many concealed Names of G-d, names of sefirot (the 10 dimensions) etc that it must surely hold some clues for us, something pointing to today.

Let’s look at the special sequence near the end of the reading of the 10 chapters of Ester, where the reader must recite the 10 names of the evil Haman’s children that are killed, in a single breath. It occurs in 3 symmetrical sequential verses of the 32 verses in Chapter 9. The number 32 always hints to hidden Tanakh wisdom, as it references the 32 Paths of Wisdom that comprise the structure of the Tree-of-Life and the number 9 also references wisdom as the 9th sefira (dimension) of that Tree is the sefira of Chochma (Wisdom).

That said, we know these deaths represent the removal of evil (klippot) and Amelak (doubt) from the 10 sefirot. And as we mentioned in a pervious article, it was in the 70th verse of the Torah that G-d punished the snake and told him that he’ll eat dust for all the days in his life, meaning that his life was finite. Perhaps the snake’s demise will be found at 70 years. It was after all after 70 years of Abraham’s life that G-d made his Covenant with him in 2018 (HC), which is analogous to 2018 CE (5778 HC). When the snake (NChSh) dies, Moshiach will live, as they both share the same gematria, 358.

As it happens that 70th verse in which G-d punished the snake for his part in separating man from the Tree-of-life reality was at Bereshit 3:14, and as we’ve explained in other articles and in The Genesis Prayer, when we divide the number 9 by the small gematria of the 42-letter Name of G-d we get:

9/.123049.. =73.1415777

which is 70 + 3.14… or 70 + Pi

And thus we can see how the 42-Letter Name (Ana B’koach) is integrally connected to this verse, and the prophecies that through its’ understanding will come the geula (final redemption) in 5777-5778.

And as it just so happens, 73.1415778 = 2 x 36.5708 and 5708 is the year Israel became a nation, 70 years before 5778, fulfilling the 70-year period proscribed by the Zohar.

70 years is a very significant period in Biblical history (as explained in The Divine Calendar) but it’s in the 70th chapter of the Torah that the 10 Commandments (Utterances) were given in 2448, when we last stood at the threshold of the Tree-of-Life reality, 66.6 jubilee years ago.

But back to the Megilat Ester, in this section of the 10 sons, the word v’et (VET) precedes each of the 10 names. VET is the 4th word in the Torah and has the numerical value 407, whose square root just happens to be 20.17424, or if we were to apply Number Theory and break it up, we’d have possibly the year 2017 and 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David. So in the reading of the story, this connection is made 10 times, once for each of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) connected within in a single breath.

Interestingly enough, the Hebrew word for letter or sign, Ot (EVT), is found exactly 10 times in the entire Torah, and 22 times in the entire Tanakh, corresponding to the 22 letters in the Hebrew Alef-bet.

We know from the sages that the last letters of phrases in Tanakh point to the future, and so when we find that the sum of the 10 names in the 11 words conjoined by the articles VET equals 376, the numerical value for Peace (Shalom), we can take heart. And that the 11th is Alef is quite significant for a new beginning as well.

The first letters also reveal important encoding and information for us. In this case, we start with the alef from the word (EYSh) that precedes the first VET and is an integral part of the 10-sefirot listed sequence in the Book. The collective first letters sum to 256, the numerical value of Devarim (Deuteronomy), the last Book of the Torah and also of the Name Aaron, Moses’ brother and High Priest, and the only person associated with the written word Moshiach in the Torah.

And while 256 = 28 or 44, interestingly enough, the first 8 of those letters, add up to 248, the numerical value of the Book Bamidbar (Numbers), and of Abraham.

Be that as it may, we’ve discussed in prior articles that the Torah is constructed of exactly (600,000 – 408) component letters and that 408 times the letter vav of numerical value 6 equals 2448, the year of the exile from Egypt and the reception of the Torah at Sinai when we all last had the opportunity to receive the Tree-of-Life, 66.6 jubilee years ago. And since the Tikunei Zohar tells us that each brush stroke of a letter is equivalent to a letter vav (6) we can see why multiplying the missing 408 by 6 is so valid. As an aside we can see why the 7 collective strokes on the 2 differing letter Shins (Sh) embossed on the tefillin add up (7 x 6) to 42, as in the 42 Tetragrammatons (YHVH) within the tefillin, and as in the 42-Letter Name of G-d that preceded Creation.

Nevertheless, the letters in the article VET, permute to EVT, the Hebrew word for “letter” and 407 just happens to be 1 less that 408, making 408 one more than 407, and thus the numerical value 408 can be viewed at “1 EVT” of “E EVT” meaning “1 letter,” the letter Alef(E). So rather than the Torah needing 408 mysterious component letters to complete it in the time of Moshiach, it may only need 1 letter, the letter Alef, as in the first letter of the 42-letter name of G-d. Moreover, the word Chat (ChT) of numerical value 408 can mean “one,” or “single.”

And so, it’s surely no coincidence that the final 3 letters of the single breath passage in discussion (TzTE) add up to 408, or that the word they come from (VYTzTE) has the numerical value 424, that of Moshiach Ben David.

And surely, it’s not a coincidence that the last 3 letters preceding the single breath passage are EVT (407) yet again, part of the word Me’ot (MEVT), meaning the “signals (signs).” This word could also mean “from the signs” or “from the letters” or even “hundreds,” as was used literally in the story. It permutes to v’emet (VEMT) “and the truth.”

So this passage begins with Truth (Emet), a kabalistic synonym for both Torah and the 42-Letter Name of G-d that begins with Elef, ends with Tav and has 40 (M) letters in between. Then the passage proceeds through 54 letters and ends with Moshiach Ben David.

The 54 letters are significant because the 9 brush strokes in the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) at a value of 6 each add up numerically to 54, representative of the running and returning Light though the 27 letters. They also hint to 5778 in that the sum of all the positive integers through 107 = 5778 while 54 x 107 is also equal to 5778, but be that as it may, the sum of the 12 words and names in the passage (excluding the 10 VET’s) is 5805, or 5778 plus 27, representing the 27 letters of the complete Alef-bet. And kabbalistically, all 27 letters are found bound up in the single letter Alef (E), the seed of the entire alef-bet, thus referring back to the  “1 letter” to complete the Torah in the days of Moshiach.

The 3 verses (Ester 9:7-9) are symmetrical, a rare occurrence in Tanakh, further distinguishing them: the first letter of each is Vav; the first letter of the 2nd word in each s Pe; the first letter of the next word in each is Vav again; then D-E-E; then the first letter of the 5th word in each is Vav again; and then the first letter of the 6th word in each is Alef(E). So the symmetrical Vavs add up to 9 and once again 9 x 6 = 54, which leaves the symmetrical PE, which can either spell the letter Pe itself, or stand for Petach Eliahu (PTCh ELYHV), “opening Elijah” or “opening to G-d (YHV)”, whose numerical value is 540 or 54 x 10, and when the kolel of 1 is added, it’s 541, the numerical value of Israel.

In the Torah everything has a special purpose. There are 10 large letters in the Torah, connecting us to Binah (the upper world); 6 small letters, connecting us to Zeir Anpin of malchut of Zeir Anpin (the final channel into our lives); there are 10 places with 32 dots, connecting us to the 32 Paths of Wisdom that connect the 10 Sefirot and that according to Rabbi Chaim Vital of blessed memory make up the 42-letter Name; and there are 6 letters at the top of the column that are not vavs (V) and thus do not connect to Zeir Anpin like the rest of the Torah, and instead they connect us to H’Mashiach, the Messiah, of the same numerical value. All together there are 10 + 6+ 32 + 6, or 54 special letters in the Torah.

Moreover, with the 10 VETs in (Ester 9:7-9), we have 30 + 54 = 84 letters, the numerical value of the Hebrew word Pad, meaning “redemption,” and as explained by the tzaddikim, this is the fusion (42+42) of the upper and lower 42-Letter Names, the understanding of which they say will bring about the geula, the final redemption. Pad (PD) is also the initials (Pe and Dalet)of the first two of Haman’s sons listed.

It’s all about the Tree-of-Life. The 10 VETS, all connecting to Moshiach Ben David (424) manifestation in 2017, represent the 10 Sefirot, and the 22 words in the passage represent the 22 pathways between them, completing the 32 Paths of Wisdom.

And the 84 letters + 22 words + 1 breath of G-d totals 107, so as hinted by the tzaddikim and the encoding in the Book of Ester, if we align our consciousness to remove the negativity from ourselves and our world throughout the 10 sefirot, this embedded technology will serve to bring about the final redemption, which is all the more reason that Purim will be the only holiday that we’ll be celebrating in the near future.

And if we add the names of the 5 principle characters in the Book of Ester–Ester,(ESTR) Ahasverosh(EChShVRVSh),. Mordechai(MRDCY), Daniel(DNYEL)and Haman,(HMN)–the 22 letters in their combined names add up to 1946 and since the Zohar describes a final 72 year period before the final redemption, we once again arrive at the year 2018 CE, or 5778 HC.

The real answer to the question why Purim will be the only holiday (Chag) after the final redemption is that according to the Zohar and Rav Ashlag’s commentary, portion Ki Tisa (11:95) the word Chag (feast, holiday) is derived from the Aramaic Chaga, meaning breaking, that is “to execue judgement upon you,” and since the cosmic holidays were all desigend to mitigate the judgements upon us, they will no longer be necessary once we’ve achieved the Tree-of-life consciousness and live without judgment. Purim is designed, not to help us with our world (Malchut) ruled by time, but to help us navigate the universe beyond time, beyond the appointed time, the Tree-of Life.

The Nations: What delayed the Messiah? And Who made the prophesies of 5760 and of 2012?

When will the Messiah (Moshiach) come? And What did the Golden Calf incident have to do with the delay? And what ever happened to that prophecy of His arrival in 5760?
וירא העם כי בשש משה לרדת מן ההר ויקהל העם על אהרן

Exodus (Shmot) 32:1 … When the nation saw that Moshe delayed to come down from the mountain, the people assembled about Aaron and said to him…

H’Am, the nation, is referred to by the Zohar as the erev rav, the force of so-called converts who derive their power from Amalek and have always sought to undermine the power of the Jews (Israelites) to bring Mashiach, the Messiah. The numerical value of H’Am (העם) is 115, and 115 jubilee (50-year intervals) is 5750, the year that Israel celebrated its 42nd year, which was 28 years before the prophesied date for the Geula, the arrival of Mashiach and the End of Days. Those familiar with The Genesis Prayer and this blog know that 28 is intimately connected with the year 5778, the construction of the Torah, and that the first 28 letters of the Torah is the link between the 42-Letter Name, the Torah, and Creation.

Before we look deeeper into the process lets examine the word H’Am (העם), comprised of a final Mem of value 40, and 2 letters, representative of the Mem-bet, or 42, the Name of G-d that chazal has told us will bring about the geula, the final redemption and thus the end of our collective 42 -step journey.

Moreover, the Ayin, of value 70, hints to the age of Israel in the prophesied date of 5778, while the other 2 letters, hey (5) and mem (40) add up to 45, the numerical value of Adam (EDM), which as we’ve explained in other post, is known to represent Adam-David-Mashiach. Moreover, the numerical value of the spelled out letters EDM from Adam-David-Mashiach is 111 + 434 + 80 = 625, which is not only the numerical value of H’Keter, “the crown and highest possible level (sefira), but the number 625 is also the exact square root of the total number of words, verses and letters in the Torah combined (390,625), which in itself graphically depicts, H’Keter, (625) crowning Heaven (Shama’im, 390).

Nevertheless, the numerical values for the phase “Adam, David and Mashiach” plus 1 for the kolel add up to 45 +14 + 364 + 1 = 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David.

And we know from the Zohar that the ayin (ע) of numerical value 70 in H’Amעם) is not without purpose because there are 70 nations in total from which holy sparks must be raised in order to bring about H’Mashiach, corresponding to the last 70 years from Israel receiving statehood in 5708 to the year 5778, and to the 70 years of King David’s life. As you can and should read in The Divine Calendar, this also relates to the destruction of the First Holy Temple in 422 BCE and to that of the the Second Temple in 70 CE. And most significantly, the word seventy (70) has the numerical value of 422 and the sum of the Names (or 3 aspects, points in time) of Adam, David and H’Mahsiach is 45 +14 + 363 = 422.

Why do we refer to these 3 aspects of the messiah as 3 points in time?

In the divine calendar of 5778 years from Adam to Moshiach, the midpoint is marked by the exact midpoint in King David’s life, 2889 HC.

The gematria atbash reveals yet another clue about the H’Am (העם) and the eventual connection to 5778 in that when we use this reverse alphabet cipher the word H’AM becomes (Z’TzY) which has a numerical value of 107, which corresponds to the sum of all the integers (spiritually, the sum of the collective memory) from 1 to 107, which is exactly 5778. And probably not so coincidentally, if we add both the regular and the atbash gematria of H’AM we get 115 + 107 = 222, which is also the same as the spelled out gematria milui value of the 3 letters in H’AM less the kolel for the 3 letters, or 15 + 130 + 80 – 3 = 222. Moreover, 6000 – 222 = 5778.

Why 6000?

In this verse, the Torah uses the word בשש “boshesh; delayed” which can also be read, “beshesh; at the sixth.” Nearly all the assorted messianic prophesies point to the sixth millennium, and there’s no argument with that, especially as 2 + 2 + 2 = 6 and we know that the nations couldn’t wait 6 more hours for Moses to return with the first set of Holy tablets from Mt Sinai.

Thanks to the Sefer Chesed Le’Avraham by Rav Avraham Azulai, zs’kl, there was much speculation that H’Mashiach would arrive in 5760 (2000 CE). And he did in a sense, as the value of the word chai (18) in the phrase Mashiach chai (the Messiah lives) indicates that he will live 18 years from 5760 until 5778, but that will all be revealed in time.

Rav Avraham Azulai, zs’kl, used the calculation of the size of a mikve, 40 seah, which is equivalent to 5760 eggs to determion the date 5760. Now, the erev rav have always thrived by spreading doubt, and doubt in Hebrew has the numerical value of 240, the same as Amalek (AMLK), which not insignificantly contains the word for nation (AM) and adds LK, of numerical value 130, the same as Sinai, where the doubt was sewn 6 hours before Moses’ arrival and the golden calf was constructed.

If we reverse we the initial letters in the phrase 40 Seah, or Mem Seah, we get Samech Meah or 60 Meah, which is 60 hundred, which is 6000 as in the 6000 years of the 6th millenium. which corresponds to the Shesh in בשש “boshesh.

But what does doubt have to do with 5760?

The value 5760 can be derived from the equation 240 x 24 = 5760 and also from 6000 – 240 = 5760. Since 24 is the value of cad, a vessel, and 240 is the value of Amelak and doubt, we see that 5760 HC is the year of Amelak, which has always been spiritually and historically the scourge of the Jews (Israelites).

From the word H’Am (העם), when the letters hey and mem are spelled out we get 15 + 80 = 95, the numerical value of “The King” and ayin spelled out is 130, that of Sinai, thus indicating that the King was at Sinai, but as we’ve seen the doubt spread by the erev rav impeded them from receiving Him. The message in all this is that we cannot let the erev rav from impeding us from receiving Him this time. We were giving 18 years, 6 + 6 + 6 years to overcome the erev rav and the doubts within ourselves in order to receive H’Mashiach in 5778. That is 66.6 jubilee years from 2448 HC, the last chance we got, when for the lack of 6 hours patience and certainty we had to wait another 3330 years for the next and final opportunity.

What about the prophesied year 2012 CE?

Since there are 18 years from the year 2000 to 2018, 2012 is 2/3 or .666 of the way in the final journey.  And while the Mayan calendar resets in the year 2012 CE for another cycle it doesn’t actually end, but many of the nations have latched onto that as a date for the end of days.  Now, while we’re in the period of Gog V M’gog, not accidentally of numerical value 70, which began in 5760 (2000 CE), and while we’re experiencing ever more difficult times, they won’t end in 2012 and the Messianic age won’t begin in 2012. But what will occur, is a deeper sense of doubt and disillusion as yet another supposed date for the Messiah comes and goes.  Don’t get fooled by Amalek; there’s no Biblical context, no Bible code for the year 2012; it’s one more illusion, and mashiach consciousness is all about seeing past the illusions of what we call reality.

How do we know we’ll get 2 opportunities?

The word H’AM is repeated twice in this verse, meaning we will have to confront the nations (erev rav/Amalek) twice, or once more in order to reach Mashiach consciousness.

And the bet (ב), meaning 2 or second, of בשש “boshesh (delayed) indicates that the delay of the 6 hours led to the delay into the sixth millennium and 2nd opportunity for us to unite as one as we were in Adam, the embodiment of Mashiach before the original sin.

Doubt that? Multiply the values of each of the letters in בשש “boshesh (delayed) and take the square root to find its essence and what do you get? 300 x 300 x 2 = 180,000 and its square root is 424.2640. Since 424 is the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David, and 26 is that of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), and 40 is both the Biblical number for “coming of age” and also the number of years that those at Mt Sinai had to wait to enter the promised land because of the golden calf incident, It’s pretty obvious what was missed and what got delayed.

Why did they turn to Aaron?

“the people assembled about Aaron…”

Amalek surrounded Aaron because Aaron is the link to Moshiach. The only name in the Torah linked to Mashiach is Aaron. And the exact words “about Aaron” (AL EHRN) have the numerical value, when the kolel is added for the two words, of 100 + 256 + 2 = 358, which is that of Mashiach.

The gold was put into his hands, to give life to the golden calf, which has the numerical value of 108, thus 1 more than 107, and thus covering up the revelations of 5778 until now. And from the nations, Mashiach will emerge. There was much technology that went into the plot to undermine Aaron and the Israelites, and one part of that was that gold, hand and also David all have the numerical value of 14, linking them all to the negative action of the gold being put into Aaron’s hand.

Think not? Then explain why the 12 words of the verse add up to 2865 and when we add the kolel for the 12 words twice for each period we’d have to wait, or alternatively the value 14, the value of David (gold and/or hand) plus 10 for the 10 Commandments we were supposed to have received that day, we get 2889 HC, the midpoint in David’s life and the midpoint from Adam to Moshiach.

And what will happen in 5778, 2018 CE?

If we turn to Exodus (Shmot) 20:18 for a clue, we find that in referring to H’Am, the people (nation, erev rav) it says, “The people kept their distance while Moses entered the mist where the Divine was [revealed].”

And so they shall keep their distance. Distance in kabbalistic spirituality means “dissimilarity” of form, thus the chaff will be separated from the wheat.  The peoples (nations) couldn’t see into the mist because the mist represents a reality beyond their comprehension; it’s the tree-of-life reality.  When Moses (Mashiach) emerges in 5778 (2018 CE) the divine will be revealed to all who have awakened to the Messiah consciousness, and only to those. B”H everyone will awaken.
