Metatron in the Beginning and in the End of Days.

Metatron in the Beginning and in the End

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

Zohar 43. Balak : 6.

Verse 86. “Enoch, who is Metatron,”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So who is Metatron?

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

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

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

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

MTt Tt R  V  N

M M M M M M

TtTtTtTtTtTt

TtTtTtTtTtTt

R  R  R  R  R  R

V  V  V  V  V  V

N  N  N  N N N

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

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

And why is this significant?

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

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

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

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

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

Let’s recap:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So what about the 222 years?

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

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

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

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

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

To be continued…

Happy Chanukah

The 26 Generations from Adam to Moses to Mashiach: Why do we Need Numbers?

Why do we count? Why does the Torah always list numbers, and why are numbers so hard for us to grasp?

The following is an excerpt from The Divine Calendar about the curious mathematics in the 26 generations from Adam to Moses. It is just one more aspect in and of the magnificence of the Torah. To most people reading and studying Torah (the Bible) the years in the generations of Adam are extremely insignificant and that may be the point: Even the most insignificant detail of the Torah shines with the magnificence and depth of the brightest star. I was compelled to make this particular post because I followed an advertising link to a site whose premise was that we can’t count the generations. I confess I didn’t read through their premises in depth, but if the Torah didn’t want us to count up its numbers, why is the Torah always taking censuses and counting everything constantly.  And why are there always deep and numerous revelations when we do.

Why would there be so much revealed perfection in the Torah’s numbers if we weren’t supposed to find it?

The answer is that our generation is meant to find this perfection. What else other than the awe of G-d can save us?

Rav Abraham Azulai in Chesed L’Avraham stated about the end of days, which he advised us would begin in 5760, “After this time, the hidden secrets of the Torah shall be revealed to all Israel, even to those that never tried to study Torah’s secrets beforehand. Though, that they did study Torah in exile, they shall now achieve to know the way of Sod.”

Then why are numbers so hard for so many people?

It is because they are Sod, secret knowledge. People’s eyes glaze over when they see numbers and they get sleepy, which is no different then often happens to people listening to a tzaddik speak. When the energy is too powerful, we can’t connect, so our minds disconnect. But know this, everything in the Torah is a gift, and everything was meant for us to take advantage of it.

OK, secrets, sure, but those can be bottom-lined for us, why do we need to look at the numbers?

Because numbers contain enormous power unto themselves, which is why there are so many of them in the Torah. Think of them as the IP addresses of various cosmic computer stations. Once you once the address your mind/soul can dial in, the same way your web browser does for you while you’re sitting at your desk, unlocking an endless stream of information. Now imagine, if all those web addresses were sorted into a specific order for you to link into just the right and accurate information and to tap into just teh right frequency of energy you need to maximize your potential this and every week of the cosmic year. This is why the Torah is divided into very specific portions (parshot) according to the weeks and holidays of the cosmic calendar year. Now these cosmic web sites are wonderful to visit, but if you could only read them (if they were in your language) how much more would you get out of them. And that’s what were are attempting to do in this blog, help you to read the cosmic web sites, translate them as best we can, because the closer we get to 5778 and the “end of days” the more we’ll need accurate information and the appropriate spiritual energy.

So what energy can we tap into this today?

At the end of this except from The Divine Calendar, one of the more technical sections of it, I’ve added new important revelations about the chronology of these 26 generations and their connection to the prophesied arrival of Moshiach in 5778.

“There are 26 direct generations in the lineage from Adam to Moses, and we know exactly how long each of them lived according to the Torah, which the sages say existed before Creation and the scientists and scholars tell us existed for the past 3330 years or so. Nevertheless, if we list all 26 generations and take the logarithm of each, and then sum up these 26 irrational numbers, we get exactly 66.661199… or 66.66.12, a numerical pictograph of 666 and 612, which is the numerical value of “Covenant, or Brit.

What are the odds of that? Really. If the Torah were divinely designed, then there’s no issue. Of course the same force that created all our mathematics could have designed this specific set of 26 interlocking numbers that ended in the year 2488 HC to be anything that He wanted it to, but if we want to design a scenario where Man could have created this chart 3330 years ago, then we have a problem. You see, John Napier only began developing the concept of logarithms around 400 years ago.

Ironically, or maybe not coincidentally at all, John Napier wrote a book about the mathematics of the Book of Revelations, but what he wasn’t privy to was that there were 600,000 Israelites at Mount Sinai when the Torah was given and when the 27, or 33, Hebrew letters of the Hebrew alphabet are broken down into their component parts they expand to 50 total letters, which makes the number of actual letters in the Torah climb from 304805 to exactly (600,000408.)

Now, there are many reasons why the Torah was designed to be 408 letters shy of the perfect 600,000, one of them being that 408 x 6 = 2448 and 2448 HC was the year the Torah was given to us at Mt Sinai, but what ties this all together so utterly perfectly is that the log of 600,000 is 5.778.

LOG(600,000) = 5.778.

The other oddity to notice about the above generational chart is that the sum of the 26 square roots, again 26 irrational numbers, also works out to 535.814805…, with 358 being the numerical value for Mashiach, the Messiah, and 814 being the numerical value of the phrase from Leviticus 19:18, “You must love your neighbor as (you love) yourself,” and 805 being the numerical value of “The Rainbow” which was G-d’s Covenant with the Earth following the Flood.

Of further note is that not only does the cumulative sum of the 26 square roots connect to Mashiach, but the cumulative sums of the first 17 (the value of tov, good) do so as well. They sum to 424.666, a not so subtle connection to Mashiach Ben David (424) and 666.

Also, you may have observed that the numerical sequence or string 5358 is found at the 9th position in the mathematical constant Pi: 3.14159265358, right after the number 26 representing both the Tetragrammaton and the 26 generations, whose square roots summed to 5358, and that the number 26 immediately follows the number 9.

Now someone might say that there existed in the days of Moses a genius capable of doing square roots and logarithms and that he somehow contrived to create a 26-generation chart where the dates end in 8’s and the logs sum to 66.6612 and square roots sum to 535.814805 and that he knew that out of the 304805 letters in the Torah, there would be exactly 4805 letter Pe’s, each of value 80, and moreover, that he convinced Moses to let him write this section of Genesis, but did he also create Pi, which is really nothing more than a mathematical result of curving a line into a circle and which thus existed at the dawn of creation? Do we really think that this is logical reasoning? That this is plausible?”

So what is really going on here?

Obviously, in building-in such precision perfection, which we can easily unravel given today’s technology, G-d wanted to give everyone in this generation the opportunity to realize in time the blessings of Torah and that there is so much more out there than we can fathom with out limited minds.

But just as importantly, the Torah is letting us know that we all come from the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) and that if your soul is one of the 600,000 that was at Mt Sinai, then it came through and was at one point united within Adam, and that it needs to be reunited again with H’Mashiach (the Messiah) in 5778.

That’s why it’s called a divine calendar; because it was preordained, and the Torah’s wants us to know that, to tune into that so it can help us to unify, to reunite. If the Torah knew the path our 600,000 souls would take then it also knew how difficult the path would be and how much help we’d need in the end days. This is why we were given this 18-year period from 5760 to 5778 (2000 CE to 2018) to live (18 is the value of chai, life) and to learn this technology, of which permission has only recently been granted for it to be made available to everyone.

If you’re reading this, chances are you are one of the 600,000 and need to help get it to the other 599,999. If you were a cell in your body, you wouldn’t think twice about helping and sharing valuable info with the rest of your body–this is what keeps you alive, but as humans, it’s not our nature (or so we deceive ourselves into thinking). Think about that: How can what our cells do naturally not be within our nature. This is the illusion of our present world. This is what Torah is trying to help us break though. This is what is on the other side of the end of days. It is the tree-of-life reality.

What about those new revelations?

We know that the number 8 plays a significant role in the divine calendar, and we also know from chazal that all the Patriarchs were supposed to live as long as their fathers, so it’s probably not a coincidence that 8 of the 26 in the generations from Adam to Moses, both of whom are aspects of Mashiach, lived shorter lives than their fathers did.  They are:

Kenen, the          4th generation

Yered, the           6th generation

Methusalah, the  8th generation

Noach, the         10th generation

Eber, the            14th generation

Terach, the         19th generation

Isaac, the            21st generation

Amran, the         25th generation

We’ve seen repeatedly in our blog posts how the number 107 is encoded into many of the Torah verses and/or Bible codes and we know that since it is a spiritual tenet that nothing is ever lost, we understand the significance that all the integers from 1 to 107 add up to 5778.  Thus, isn’t it significant that the sum of the generations of those 8 forefathers of ours is 107, thueds linking them, us to 5778.  And also that the first 5 are all even numbers that add up to 42, as in the 42-Letter name of G-d, that we learned from the Arizal, is our real soul root (see the blog post regarding this), and also that the last 3 are all odd numbers which add up to 65, the numerical value of Adonai. Now, if you piece it together in reverse order, you can trace it back to 3,5,8 or 358, Mashiach.

With these simple ages, the Torah is helping us to reconnect with our soul roots and to connect to the Mashiach.  Note, all these numbers come from the extraordinarily secret Book of Adam, as the Torah alludes to in Bereshit 5:1, to which only a very few tzaddikim have been privileged to see, but now we can all connect with this knowledge openly.

And since the Torah wants to illustrate the parts are all part of the whole we can see from these numbers that the sum of the integers from 1 to 26 (YHVH) is 351 and that the sum of square roots of the 18 (26-8) numbers not highlighted for us is 351.702, with the number 702 being the value of Shabbat, the 7th day.  And if you add 7 to 351, you get 358, Mashiach again.

One more parting gift: 5778/107 = 54, which is the numerical value of the letters dalet and nun, the two letters of the month of Scorpio, according the Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah, that are also associated with the arrival of Mashiach, but this will be explained in detail in another post.
