The Last 70 Years

We’ve often correlated the 70 years from the founding if the nation of Israel in 5708 (1948 CE) to the year the tzaddkim have predicted for the Moshiach and geula (final redemption) in 5778 (2018 CE) and have explained why 1000 different ways in The Divine Calendar and our articles. But here we find in the Introduction to the Tikunei Zohar, Hebrew Hasulam #222, written by Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai nearly 1900 years ago a similar reference to the final 70 years:

And this is the test that the Israelites will go through in the seventy years [70] of the last exile. Since a poor man is considered as dead and when his money or property is taken away from him, it is like they take is body and soul, as they are all at has the same weight.

Whatever that he likes should be let go for the love to his master. At that time he connects to the word love אהבה, which is Bereshit, בראשית, and it is like the world was created for him.”

 

Aramaic text Tikunei Zohar

Note, that Rabbi Shimon was writing this at the start of the last exile, which Rav Yedhua Halevi Ashlag determined to be 1948 years long, analogous to the birth date of Israel in 1948 CE and of Abraham in 1948 HC as explained in The Divine Calendar.

And before we reveal what else the Zohar has to say about the days of Mashiach and the geula, let’s note the section of the Tikunei Zohar that contained the secret of the 70 years was 222 as in 6000 – 222 = 5778.

In the Zohar portion of Naso, there is sub-portion dictated to Rabbi Shimon by the spirit of Moshe Rabbeinu (Ra’ya Meheimna). The first part of the discussion is about the Torah’s test of drinking the specially prepared waters to determine whether a woman is unfaithful, and how if she was she will die from the bitter water and if not, she will give birth to a boy because of the sweetened water, and it segues right into:

89. “In the same manner, Israel will be tested in the last redemption. This is what is meant by: ‘Many shall purify themselves, and make themselves white” (Daniel 12:10), who are from the good side and who pass the test. ‘But the wicked shall do wickedly’ (Ibid.), because they are from the Evil Side and by them, it will be fulfilled: “Neither shall they enter into the land of Israel’ (Yechezkel 13:9). And He kills them.”

So the exile is being presented to us as a test of faith. and in the very next section we are told that after the final redemption will be the tree-of-life reality (Binah) and that those that connect to the Zohar will be spared the final tests of faith because they understand (Binah = Understanding).

90. “‘But the wise shall understand’ (Daniel 12:10), since they are from the side of Binah, which is the Tree of Life. For them, it was said, ‘And they who are wise shine like the brightest of the firmament’ (Ibid.) with your composition, which is the book of the Zorah, from the light of the supernal; Ima repentance, They do not require a test and, because the children of Israel in the future will taste from the Tree of Life, which is the book of the Zohar, they will leave exile with mercy. It will hold true about them that ‘so Hashem did lead him, and there was no strange EL with him’ (Devarim 32:12)”

To be continued with the Zohar’s explanations of what specifically will happen at the end of days, at the end of the 70 years, when the final redemption hits…

Moses did everything right except…

It’s the details that trip us up.

Even the slightest slip up can have devastating repercussions, especially so, the higher up you are on your spiritual path.

When Moses retrieved Joseph’s bones from the Nile in order to fulfill the pledge to Joseph and to help split the Red Sea, as per our blog on “Why are you crying out to me?” he used a golden plate inscribed with G-d’s Name and with the words “Ascend, O ox!”

And when he tossed that plate into the Nile, Joseph’s coffin rose up. (Midrash Tanchuma, Ki Tisa 19). As the Arizal explains, we know Moses associated Joseph with the Ox because in his farewell blessing to the Jews in Devarim 33:17, the second to last chapter in the Torah, Moses described Joseph as an “ox”: “His glory is like a first-born ox….”

Next the Arizal juxtaposes this with the second to last chapter in Genesis, and in Jacob’s blessing to Joseph in Genesis 49:22, the same word for “ox” appears, although in this case it meant wall (ShVR) “wall”: “Joseph is a fruitful son, a fruitful vine by the fountain with branches running over the wall.” The words for “over the wall” in Hebrew are “alei shur“, which can be pronounced, “Ascend, O’ ox!” (“aleh shor“).

Wherever the golden plate came from it was known to possess great power, and had Moses held retrieved it all might have been well, but Moses had his counterparts who were nearly as powerful and used the dark side of the Names. It’s a spiritual axiom that where there’s light, there are also shadows.

From Jacob’s nemesis Laban, came his son Beor, who was the father to Balaam, who chazal tell us was nearly Moses’ equal, to his sons Yunus and Yumbruce, who according to the Zohar were the leaders of the Erev Rav. the Mixed Multitude that accompanied Moses and the Israelites out of Egypt. Moses had thought he could convert them and thus capture a huge amount of holy sparks for the sake of the Lord, but it wasn’t their time.

According to the Arizal, Yunus and Yumbruce planned to extricate the soul of their grandfather Beor from the vegetable Kingdom to which he had been relegated upon death by making Aaron and the Israelites sin, and thus Moses as well.

This plan was not unlike the snake’s plan to cause Eve and thus Adam to sin by utilizing the fruit of the tree (from the vegetable kingdom).

And somehow they had gotten a hold of the golden plate inscribed with the words, “Ascend, O ox!” We can be pretty sure who had a hand in that. Nevertheless, the Golden Calf, of numerical value 108, is also called an “ox,” and by the magic embedded in the golden plate and the spiritual support of a reluctant Aaron’s hands, the Golden Calf came to life imbued with the soul of their grandfather Beor.

Now Moses was very busy, moving 600,000 Jews and 2.4 million erev rav toward the edge of the Red Sea (Endless Sea), yet had Moses recovered the powerful plate, instead of leaving it to fate, those 600,000 at least would have been able to ascend once and for all back in 2448 HC.

Instead only 408 Jews ascended and stayed within the tree-of-life reality. One for every 6 years of the 2448 that passed from the sin of Adam to the 10 utterances.

Though Moses was high upon Sinai and nowhere near the sinful dealing below, he knew of the inadvertent part that he had played in their downfall and took responsibility for it when he pleaded on their behalf and asked G-d to remove him from His Book. There’s much controversy about which book he meant; after all, there are 6 Torah portions that Moses’ name is not mentioned in after this incident, 1 for each of the 6 days of creation and 1 for each 100, 000 of the 600,000 souls not permanently elevated that day. Since Creation occurred for the sole purpose of providing a platform for that elevation, each day had been sinned against separately.

And since Moses’ name is not mentioned in the 12 portions of Genesis (Bereshit) his name is not included in a total of 18 potions, or exactly 1/3 of the 54 (3 x18) portions in the Torah. This, of course means that he is mentioned, in 2/3 or 66.6% of the portions.

The golden calf has a numerical value of 2 x 54, or 108, or 18 x 6, which is (6+6+6) x 6, and it’s also the numerical value of chai, life (18) x 6, so it’s telling that the Torah hints to the Book of Life as to the Book that Moses was referring to be removed from. And even more so that the “Book of Life” (Sefer Chaim, SPR ChYYM) has the numerical value of 408, which is also 68 x 6 or chaim (life) x 6.

And it’s for the sake of the 6 days of creation that all the rest of the souls that would have to wait another 66.6 jubilee years from 2448 to 5778 for another opportunity to ascend to the tree-of-life reality.

The 6 portions that Moses’ name isn’t mentioned in after the Book of Genesis (Bereshit) are Balak, Re’eh, Ekev, Shoftim Ki Thetze, and Tetzaveh, whose initials which spell out 4 of the 6 (or 2/3) letters in Bereshit (BREShYT). The other 2 initials (C and A) add up to 90, the numerical value of melech, king, or 5 x 18. And the letters they couldn’t replace Alef (E) and Yud (Y) stand for Anochi (E) YHVH (Y), I am G-d, the first two words of the 10 Utterances.

And we know that G-d didn’t remove or erase Moses’ name from the Book of Life, but from the 6 portions of the Torah instead. And how do we know that? Because the gematria sofit of the final letters in the 11 words of Exodus 32:32 where Moses makes this request is 3666, when the kolel of the letters and words in the verse are added, and 3666/6 = 611, the numerical value of “Torah.”

And we know Moses is still in the Book of Life, even today, because when He took Moses name out of 6 portions He also took the letter vav of numerical value 6 out of 6 of the 248 columns in the Torah and replaced it with the letters BYHShMV of  numerical 363, which is that of Moshe Chai, “Moses lives” and also of H’Mashiach, “the Messiah.” And the Shin (Sh) of BYHShMV and also of M0She and MoShaich is found in the portion Ki Thisa of the golden calf.

Of course, the golden calf was just the final manifestation of the doubts raised during the 10 Utterances. Spiritually, the seed was planted when Moses left behind the golden plate with G-d’s Name inscribed upon it, which allowed let the tree-of-knowledge to grow anew. The golden calf was just the fruits that were eaten from it when the Israelites couldn’t wait another 6 hours for Moses return with G-d Tablets.

For 3 full chapters after the 10 Utterances, Moses’ name wasn’t mentioned. And of the 616 times that Moshe (MShH) appears in the Torah, the 173rd time, corresponding to the 173 keys of Moses and the small gematria of the 42-Letter Name, is at the end of the 10 Utterances in Exodus 20:19, which is in the 156th paragraph of the Torah, the 65th in Exodus. Does this hint at 2019 CE, the year after 5778 HC, as also hinted at in PI (as explained in There’s Nothing Random About the Universe)?

It might, considering that 616 is the value of H’Torah (the Torah), 65 is the value of Adonai, and 156 is the value of Zion and of Joseph, whose bones Moses had retrieved.

It’s a funny way to tell a story through numbers, but while our Biblical interpretations change with our consciousness, the quantitative numbers never change; they haven’t in 66.6 jubilee years. And the sum of the gematria of the names of the 6 portions that Moses’ name is not mentioned in after the 50 chapters of the Book of Genesis is 1968, as in both 1968 HC and 1968 CE. If we add the 50 chapters of Genesis (as in the 50-year length of the jubilee year) to this, we get 1968 + 50 = 2018, as in the year 5778 HC and as in 2018 HC, the year of G-d Covenant with Abraham. (see our blog on 1968, the year of revolution).

Regardless, of the simple math, the importance of this lesson is that we must pay attention to the details in our spiritual quests, that we don’t forget about G-d’s Name. Moses had his name removed when he forgot about G-d’s Name (even though it only happened once and during very pressing circumstances). Moses’ name was also removed from the Pesach Haggadah because it was there in Egypt, during the Exodus that Moses slipped up. And G-d was so angry at him, knowing what would happen, that He even stated that He wanted to kill Moses.

Moses’ case is an extreme one because of his exalted spiritual level, but we all want to reach that place of keter, which our forefathers were at back at the 10 Utterances (Commandments) and thus we’re all going to have to be much more careful, much more diligent in our spiritual actions. Why did only 408 people make it to the tree-of-life last time? Because all it takes is one slip of consciousness. Adam only slipped up once. Moses slipped up only once. The snake doesn’t slip; he slithers.

“Song of the Well” from which we Draw the Light

…continued from the “Song of the Sea” at Shmot 15:1-21, paragraph 42, where we discussed the connection of the flowing Light to water, the mikve concept, the name Ehyeh and the 42-Letter Name of G-d, all their conjoined connections to H’Moshiach (the Messiah), and also the importance of joyful singing in appreciation of Hashem.

The next song sung in the Bible is also about water. It is the “Song at the Well” found at Bamidbar 21:17-20, and not coincidentally we find that the first well drank from in the Torah is found at Bereshit 21:17-20, when G-d gives Hagar and young Ishmael relief and offers to make him a mighty nation. This cannot be a coincidence, but the difference was Hagar and Ishmael didn’t give thanks. Yet G-d kept his promise and made him a mighty nation, a nation of unquenchable thirst.

And neither can the fact that the word well, Ber (BER) is found 22 times in the Torah, an indication of the flow of light through the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, and that all the permutations of Ber, such as in the Torah’s 2nd word, Barah (BRE) add up to 28, the same total number of time2 the word “river” is used in the Torah.

Well and River?

Wells are dug. Rivers flow down from the mountains. The rivers refer to the flow of Light from the upper rivers above, while the wells are the vessels, recipients of this flow, which is why Abraham and the Patriarchs were always digging wells, to prepare our vessels for the Light. This is also why Miriam, a female, was in charge of the well. She was a natural vessel, while Moses was a natural channel, and more like a river in nature.

The first verse of the Torah also has 28 letters, and of the first 9 of those letters, the permuted BER (well) to BER (to create) was included twice, BRESHYT BRE because it takes two drops from below to cause one to flow down from above, which is also why the Moshiach prophecies are based on 666, or 2/3. We have to move 2/3 of the way ourselves and G-d will do the rest.

And that BER (well) and BER (to create) are spiritually related is easily understood if one sees BER (well) as the feminine principal or vessel, which is what creates, gives birth, or manifests. While a river can flow all day long, the water (or Light) must be drawn into a vessel in order to irrigate and nourish and breed life.

Interestingly enough, those 9 letters, including their ordinal value sum to 1215, and as we discussed in our article on the Shakings of the Lulav, all the diverse elements of the Sukkot holiday add up to 100 (Sach) + 91 (sukkah) + 1024 (4 species) = 1215. There is a reason for 1215, but we wont go into it now, but when we take away 1 for the kolel, and get 1214, much of the technology gets revealed. For example, amongst the 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse, there are 11 unique letter and they also have a complete value (ordinal plus standard gematria) of 1214. Also 1214 is the exact numerical value of “70 languages” (ShBAYM LShVNVT), corresponding to the 70 nations and the 70 faces of the Torah. And furthermore, 1214 is the exact value for the “permutation of the letters” (ZYRVP H’EVTYVT), which the Torah seems to be telling us to do, as did Abraham, the Patriarch, in his Sefer Yetzirah (The Book of Formation).

This helps explains the water connection, “Pouring of the Water” (nisuch hamayim), during and to the holiday of Sukkot. And during the time of teh Holy Temple, “Pouring of the Water” was accompanied by signing and dancing and much celebration, just as it should be, considering the first songs of the Torah are about water, and the flow of the Light.

That the exact word well (Beer, BER), found 22 times in the Torah, is obviously connected with the 22 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet, through which Light flows into our world, but a deep secret revealed in The Genesis Prayer is that the Well of Miriam is located at the very center of 42-Letter Name matrix in the Reish-Zaddi (RZ) pair, at letters #21 and 22 of the 42 letters, at the place also known as the Brit of Mashiach, as discussed in previous blogs. Moreover, the numerical value of the RZ pair is 290, the same as Miriam.  Because of the special properties of the mikve, those concerned about fertility and the conception of righteous children, shold read the special section in The Genesis Prayer regarding the 42-letter Name and this special connection within it.  Many people for many generations including ours have received so-called miracles from it, which we know to be just the tree-of-life reality at work.

…to be continued with the rest of the 10 songs. And we will soon be discussing the “Sword of Michael,” which some say is also the “Sword of Moses,” hidden within the “Song of the Sea.”
