What was in the Beginning?

“In the beginning…”

What was there in the beginning?

The world was without form and empty, so what was there?

There were four things within this emptiness: The spirit of G-d hovering on the waters; the 42-Letter Name of G-d, the 22 letters (building blocks) and a timetable (time frame) for them all to work in.

These four aspects of G-d combined in instant precision to form the Torah and all our physical and metaphysical existence, heaven and earth. But what were these four aspects?

The Spirit of G-d on the waters is a metaphor. Obviously, waters didn’t exist before existence, but imaginary concepts did, things like the mathematical and physical constants like Pi and Phi, which turn two dimensional objects into three dimensional ones by curving space, and which fashion growth into manageable spiraling patters so they don’t spiral out of control. To us, these are numbers, but before they were assigned an endless stream of numbers for each minor iteration of physical action that they controlled, the constants were formless concepts, ideas in the imagination of G-d, ideas that when laid out simultaneously formed a sea of potential that when finally combined with the right concepts of energy bundles formed the universe nearly instantaneously.

The 22 Letters, as briefly explained by Abraham in the Book of Formation, the Sefer Yetzirah, are the 22 building blocks, subdivided into 3 sets: the 3 Mothers (E,M,SH,); the 7 doubles (B,G,D,C,P,R.T); and the 12 elementals (H,V,Tz,Ch,Tt,Y,L,N,S,A,Z,K). These building blocks of distinct energy bundles–hence their distinct numerical values–combined and recombined to form physicality, and every which way they are combined takes on a life and meaning of its own. Think of it as being reflected in humans: You have your own personal energy and attributes; then combined with your wife’s, you form a pair with different attributes and new potential; then you become a family and that potential grows and gathers new attributes, even changing your own original personal ones; then you join different communities and social groups and you then impact on society in different ways, which then shades the understanding and interpretation of your attributes. If you look inward to the eusocial community that are the cells of your body you’ll see the same set up. Look to the atoms, or the cosmos and it is still the same.

Shortly, we’ll publish an article to the site on the exact structure of these building blocks and what Abraham meant when he assigned specific ones to the planets and constellations and told us that they controlled our destiny, because they do not combine randomly and G-d did not leave everything to chance. They are set in specific rings which rotate in sequence. The 12 rings of the 7 doubles for instance need 6 full rotations to complete their cycle, making a total of 42 clicks to complete their cycle. The Mothers and Elementals each need 22 clicks to complete there cycles, and if we add these 86 clicks, with all the cyclical ordinal values of all the letters (as will be explained in said article) they add up to exactly 5778. So far, what we’ve been seeing are the hands on G-d’s clock, and sometimes just the cuckoo popping out of the clock, what we’re now privy to is the mechanism within the clock–the gears and ratchets. To most, who just want to get through life, concentrating on the obstacles thrown at them one at a time, they don’t need that privilege. For those who think there must be more to life and want to understand, there is now a means.

it is a tenet of spirituality that nothing is ever lost, once it goes from potential state to physical it exists forever, which is why so many of the Torah mathematics include the sum of all the integers through a specific number–none of the previous integers that got you to that point had been lost.  That said, the sum of the integers through 22, in other words the real numerical value of 22, is 253 and 2 x 253 = 506, the value of the Hebrew word for “Unconditional love.”  It is also the value of the first line of the 42-Letter Name, and is also the value found 3 times sequentially within the last 7 letters of that same Name.

Moreover, 253 x 22 + 212 = 5778 and 212 is the numerical value of H’Or, “The Light”

The 42-Letter Name is a multi-dimensional matrix, a scaffolding that the letters adhered to in a specific sequence, some visible to us, some not. It’s small gematria numerical value is 173, and it is the 173 keys that were given to Moses that opened the various gates of heaven to him. When the matrix is completely unfolded it is the Torah.  It comes to us simply as the Ana B’koach, and not so simply, as you can imagine such a potent tool as the entire Torah folded up into 42 visible letters would be, it can help us receive all the miracles in life we need by bending reality for us, folding up time and space, exactly as it did for Jacob and his sons. If you haven’t experiences this for yourself, or haven’t experienced it enough, you should start by reading The Genesis Prayer. After that, many deeper secrets will be revealed to you throughout this blog and many more gateways will be available to you. Indeed, the more you understand the 42-Letter Name, the more gets revealed to you anyway. I’m not saying that it is a substitute, but it’s like studying Torah on a deep level and studying a multitude of portions at once.

Until recently G-d’s timetable (or time frame) has been known to only a very select few. Now, as you can read for yourselves in The Divine Calendar and There’s Nothing random about the Universe, it’s available for all to see. So 13.7 billion years were folded into 6 days of creation, get over it; it doesn’t mean anything. That it is 13.7 speaks for itself, as this is the numerical value (137) of kabbalah, meaning to receive. The time frame is 5778 years from the Biblical Birth of Adam to the arrival of Mashiach (the Messiah) and the end of days. It has been written into the Torah, into all our mathematical and physical constants, into the 22 building blocks, and since the complete sofit numerical value (nominal and ordinal together) of the 42 letters in the 42 Letter name of G-d add up to 5778, it’s been written into the Shem Mem-Bet (Ana B’koach) as well.

Even multiply 42 x 137 and add 22. or more specifically 42.173 x 137, and what do you get?:5777.7 or 5778.

So why make all this available to us now?

Because G-d has a plan. He always did. And He wants us to know that. It’s always darkest before the light. Darkness always precedes the Light, like Bohu (chaos) before the Light in Genesis, Nachor and Haran before Abraham, Ishmael before Isaac, Esau before Jacob, all brothers, but all must absorb the darkness and be separated out like the chaff from the wheat, and incidentally (B,N,H,Y,A), the 5 Hebrew initials of their names sum to 137, while the Initials of the 4 Names Light, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (E,E,Y,Y) add up to 22. Do you recall the odd story from pasha Lech Lecha of 5 kings verses 4 kings and the 4 Kings winning? It’s all planned.

Besides being a precursor of our tribulations in present day Iraq (and the tar pits in the valley of Siddon/Saddam), this battle was a metaphor for the victory of the Light then and also in the end of days. And it’s not coincidental either that 137 + 22 = 159, the small gematria value of the 42 Letters of the Name of G-d (the upper Mem-Bet).

Oh, and if you don’t think this had anything to do with our present tribulations of our Kings getting stuck in the tar pits, please review Bereshit 14:2 and the names of the 5 Kings, Bera, Birsha, Shinab, Shemeber and the King of Bela: (BRA, BRShA, ShNEB, ShMEBR, and BLA). What do they all have in common?

The letters in common to all 5 names are Bet and Shin as in Bush. Is it any wonder that both Presidents Bush were compelled by fate to enter the battle against evil. The other common letters BRA, BRShA, ShNEB, ShMEBR, and BLA) are Resh (R) and Ayin (A) or RA, evil. It could also be Ayin-Resh (AR), meaning enemy or even vigilant. The remaining letters spell El, Amen.

It’s all been written: 22 letters, blown by the spirit of G-d and lining up on the scaffolding of the 42-Letter Name and the Torah to spell out the details of the time-line.

And as per our post titled Halfway Point it’s the 5 final letters, assocaited with judgment that will pave the way to the final redemption in 5778, which is yet another connection to the epic Biblical battle detailed above. But speaking of letters, in our next post we’ll show the symmetry and perfection in the spelled-out forms of their names and their obvious connection to 42, Mashich Ben David (424) and the year 5778.

Tohu V’Bohu and the Messiah, H’Mashiach

Genesis 1:2 Tohu v’Bohu: “The world was empty and without form.” We know from Chazal that this refers to the 10 sefirot (dimensions) before the interconnectedness of the sefirot (in other words, order). Tohu represents the 10 sefirot (vessels) that were shattered, fell, and then scattered throughout our world, the world of Tikun, and these became the holy sparks that we must all help to gather in from the 70 nations of the world to bring Mashiach. Bohu represents the present 3-column schematic of the interconnected dimensions.

The 3 words that express this in the Torah, come after the 8th word (V’H’ERZ,”and the Earth”) in the Torah, and they represent the final transformed letters of the all-important 42-Letter Name of G-d connected to Creation and the Messiah.

The first of these three, H’YTH, has the value 420 as in 42 x 10 or the 42 Letters in the 10 dimensions (sefirot). And if we add the kolel (4) for the 4 letters of the word, we have 424, the value for Mashiach Ben David.  This is significant because the sum total of the sofit values of the 33 letters (8 words) preceding this 9th word, totals 5778, the year prophesied for the arrival of H‘Mashiach as is explained below.

From the middle of the 9th word, Ha’itah (HYTH) to the middle of the 10th word, Tohu (THV), we get the numerical value of 820, which is the value of the all-important (all encompassing) Torah verse for “Love they neighbor as thyself”

Then the six letters including the 3 of  Tohu (THV) and the first 3 of Bohu (VBHV) add up to 424, the value for Mashiach Ben David again.

While the full phrase Tohu v’Bohu has the numerical value of 430 as in the 430 years of exile between the Covenant of Abraham and the Exodus (also the reception of the Torah) as explained in depth in The Divine Calendar.

Moreover, the 5 letters between the final He of Ha’itah through Tohu to the Vav of V’Bohu add up to 422 as in the numerical value of the Hebrew word for 70, which as explained in The Divine Calendar connect to the fall of both Holy Temples in the years –422 BCE and 70 CE respectively and much more, including the 70 years of King David.

And by extention the 6 letters between the final He of Ha’itah through Tohu to the Bet of V’Bohu add up to 424 as in the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David yet again.

On interest to note is that the sum of the sofit values for the 33 letters through the 8th word of the Torah is 5743 and when we add 33 to it for the 33 letters and either the kolel of 1 or 2, we get either 5777 or 5778 respectively, the date prophesied for the arrival of Mashiach. Now, as discussed at length in The Genesis Prayer and as explained in Nothing is Random in the Universe, while the entire Torah is encoded and every letter is specifically set these first fer words and verses hold tremendous and deep power and meaning.  And while the sum of all the letter values in the first verse (7 words) add up to 2701, which just happened to be the sum of all the positive integers through 73, the value of Chochma (wisdom, the 2nd highest sefira), the total value of all 8 words is 3003, whihc happens to be the sum of the positive integers through 77, the value of the word Mazal (fortune/destiny/luck).

To see yet another glimpse of how these words/letters are structured to connect us with the underlying patters/order we see that the sum of the first letters of the first 8 words, representing the 28 letters before it is 28 and the sum of the first letters of the first 9 words, representing the 33 letters before it is 33.
